Help! I am 35 years old and lost 140 pounds 5 years ago, after having 5 children. The weight has stayed off, except for the occasional 5-10 pound fluctuations (which I am currently on the high side of ).
The only exercise I did to lose weight was walking between 2-6 miles 4-6 days a week. I am very glad to be rid of the excess weight, but I am SO flabby! And have SO much loose skin! I think I am a long torso body type, so my stomach does get very flat, and I do have little folds of skin at the bottom of my tummy (5 kids!) and that doesn't bother me so much- but it's my legs and behind!! Seriously, it looks like I have no muscle whatsoever in my butt, and while I can see some definition in my quads, the back of my legs and inner thighs (all the way to my knees) still have SO much squishy fat and hanging skin.
Lol my girls and I all have bigger behinds in comparison to our upper bodies, and we laughingly call them bubble butts- but mine is now deflated: a popped bubble! :P
Am I just a hopeless case because of letting myself gain so much weight and then losing it?
I have been doing BWO /TTN /Balance /and a hard leg exercise I found for free ( I think it is part of the Diva Derriere ) every day for a week and have noticed no changes in measurements or weight. I know a week isn't very long, so I am not giving up- but I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a more specific plan for targeting my hamstrings/inner outer thighs/buttock area??
Has anyone else had a similar situation and seen positive results?
Oh, and I also take 9 Alfalfa a day and I started skin brushing...
Any pointers and suggestions would be welcome. I really do love exercising- I was on dance/drill team and cheerleading in high school and college and so I really LOVE the way we have to think about our form with TTAP; it reminds me of those dance moves!
