Straight to the Core

I’m about to start my third session of Body Back.  After 16 weeks, I’ve lost 15-17 lbs (because it varies day to day) including 6 inches off my waist.  The two pictures below are from weeks 8 and 16.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very very pleased with this progress.  But I’m having one little issue: my frutt, also known as, the front butt.  You see, there’s this extra skin that has accumulated around my lower abdominals, the result of creating two big babies.  Well, when I wear pants, it tends to look a little like a behind.  Hence the term, front butt.  Please note below:

On the plus side, my booty is looking fab!

See how the distance from my hip in the front is the same as in the back???  No matter what I do, it seems to never disappear.  I’m sure some of you ladies with babies know what I’m talking about.  I’m not going to pretend I haven’t considered surgery.  I really don’t want to go that route; it’s dangerous and painful and expensive and not to mention a little vain (because I’m so incredibly humble and modest, ha!).  But I’d really like to hope there’s some natural way to shrink my gut.  Why does it matter?  Well, it doesn’t look too cute and all my pants fit weird.  And I feel like I’ve been working really really hard.  I have a vision for myself and it includes (one day in the far future) a bikini or a slinky dress.  It does not include front butt.

My Body Back instructor asked us to take on a 30 day challenge this month and I chose this one from shrinkingjeans.net.  Thank you pinterest!

I’m not giving up on a natural solution.  I definitely know how far I still have to go until I even find my abs under all these stretch marks and loose skin.  But I know I’m headed in the right direction.

Have you lost your front butt?  Is it possible to do it without surgery?  Please share in the comments!

  1. A front butt! So funny, yet not funny. I totally have one. My ob told me my last baby stretched my muscles so much that I will never have a nice, flat stomach. 🙁 I have considered surgery, but will probably never feel like forking out the money or time to actually do it. Congrats on your before and after photos. You look great.

    • Thanks so much! I think about surgery often but I really don’t like pain, lol. The thought of cutting my stomach muscles again makes me want to cringe.

You’ve heard my thoughts! Would love to hear yours here.
