Donít knock it, Weej: gaining on the hips and butt means you still have a figure. And anyway, itís healthier than gaining on the belly (unless the belly gain is mainly subcutaneous fat and your knees are really strong).

The issue of where I gain is something thatís concerned me, too, in that I was hoping to gain a little more in my bust than I have so far. I still want to have a figure, as I gain.

My scale was on the blink today (one of those electronic ones that need the battery replaced once in a while), so I replaced it this afternoon, and Iíll weigh in the morning right after I wake up.

That said, as of this morning, Iím now up another inch in the bust, another 2 in the hips, and negative-one in my belly -- Iím not sure I measured my belly properly, last week. I try to measure an inch above the navel, and stand in front of the mirror, so I can see if the tape is riding up my back. But it doesnít matter, as my belly is generally rolier than it was last week, and my size-12 jeans are finally getting a little tight, especially when Iím sitting down! So I count that as progress.

Luv,
Henna

Lots of people care about hips and butt. Some people (like me) even prefer them over belly fat.

Default Thank You All!

Thank you to all you sweet people who said the butt and hip gains were not so bad. You made me fel better. I always hated being a "pear" but now I feel okay, knowing not everyone thinks the body type hideous

Once I lost a ton of weight trying to get rid of the pear shape. it didn't work. I was a 4 on top and a 6 on bottom. Can't "win!"

Luv, Weej

This thread is definitely encouraging.

I've been at a plateau for a while, but this thread is making me awfully hungry...

Funny you quoted me on that particular statement Zonker. Seems I've hit 370 a bit earlier than planned. Going with the flow now, eating what I want. If I gain more, s'all good. If I don't, s'all good too. I feel great and that's what matters.

And I agree. This thread does make me hungry.

Default Working on the FAT ASS now

I have to say a year ago I was 206 lbs my smallest and I got on the scale here the other day I am 268 lbs. I got tired of listening to my husband saying I was wasting away so now I have gained 62 lbs in a year......... Good thing I have 10 sizes of clothes to fit into. I have clothes ranging from size 14-28+ so still a bit of room for a few more lbs.

Talking Weejee's Got 10 Pounds of New Fat!

I was here last October, I think. Since then, I gained 10 pounds. That's my usual pace: a pound a month. Last two weeks, however, we've been going out for ice cream every day, and I noticed some new pudge growing around my middle. Yay!

You are very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of fat and what is healthy and what isn't. Kudos. Any subcutaneous fat is a good thing though, unlike visceral it can actually help prevent diabetes, heart disease, etc.

I've gained 18 pounds since June 8!
I even got some nice new stretch marks to prove it!

I don't think it was my eating really...I just got lazy.

Although the 8 cream horns I ate last night,prolly didn't "help" the matter.

Well I thought I had almost reached my goal of 260 (and was at 250), when I found out that my scale was in dire need of caliberation, putting me then at about 220.

But I am not 222, since like the first week of July. My belly is getting BIG.

I love this thread

Just found this thread, so I'm excited to become a part of it.

Been actively gaining for about a since Last January, when I was at the skin and bones 161 pounds. I would have to guess that I have managed to put on about 435-50 pounds since then, would love to check it put I have no scale . I can definetely tell that I have put on alot of weight, my bellys getting big and a starting overhang, and I'm getting a good amount of cellulite on my thunder thighs and big butt.

Better get back to eating!

I'll be posting a more recent account of my gaining (or lack thereof, lately) saga later tomorrow, er today (now that it's way past midnight, and it's already tomorrow ^_~), time permitting.

I haven't really been 'intentionally' gaining, but I think that my freshman year of college was good to me. Last September, I was probably at about 195 (and even lower at 183 May '07 from a diet I was on, and eventually got fed up with), and now, I'm hovering somewhere between 210-215. Most of it goes to my thighs, and not hardly enough to my belly. I just want it to hang! Haha. It's almost there, I guess, but I'm not sure how much more I can gain before my mom (I'm not worried about my dad, because he's a big guy) says something to me.

Oh well. College is starting up again in a couple of weeks, so we'll just have to let that run its course!
