When I was in my teens I was an optimistic B cup.  I used to say that I wanted a breast augmentation.  I researched it, loved the way it looked and wanted boobs.  The reality is after my second son I was pushing a DD!  They were heavy, didn’t fit in normal clothes and they were likely much bigger but I never had a proper fitting.  However when I started losing weight and they started shrink I was thrilled!  Then only a few months after I got them back down to a B/C cup I got diagnosed with breast cancer and risked losing them all together.  That was terrifying!  However, I still didn’t want them big, I just wanted mine.  I’m lucky enough to still be cancer free.  And if you haven’t lately, DO A BREAST EXAM!

The Facts

You cannot lose weight and keep it only in your chest and butt.  You can do chest exercises and make them look better, and more perky.  You can do squats and build a lovely round bum.  However anyone out there that thinks spot training works is deluding themselves.

Some women will loose weight in specific areas quicker then others but if you are in about the 20-22% body fat range (healthy) then you’re likely not much more then a B cup.

The Fitness Industry

Here’s my issue.  Why is it that all of these beautiful fitness models that devote so much time to health and fitness all have breast implants?!!?  They are beautiful and fit, and personally I don’t think it looks good.  That’s not to say that there is anything wrong with it.  I am not going to knock a personal decision and if it makes you feel good, do it.  My issue is that the industry is inundated with images of women with 6 packs and DD’s.  The image of healthy, natural and beautiful needs to contain more images of people that are “natural”.

One thought on “BOOBS”

  1. I would like to see more super fit women with natural boobs BUT I understand that they get super fit, you can’t spot lose, and the boobs shrink. I am totally making up that I think most of them get breast implants to feel and look more feminine when they are super cut/hard/toned/etc. Heck I want to get a boob job so that I have a more proportioned figure! Super muscled thighs look a lot bigger/wider when you are tiny up top (at least that is what I think) so maybe they feel like it makes them look more balanced?
