This is definitely the million-dollar question!

The answer, however, is not so spectacular. As Sharon said above, the best way to get rid of fat (anywhere on the body) is to workout. There are no special diets or exercises that can get rid of fat in a specific area of the body. However, what you CAN do is begin to strengthen those parts of the body that you want to look better, and as you lose weight, those body parts will begin to look more toned (compared to only losing weight without strength training).

So many women want to lose weight just around the middle, and unfortunately, weight loss does not work that way. To lose weight, it is a simple formula that takes time: expend more calories than you consume. If you increase your physical activity, and at the same time decrease your calories and make smarter choices about what calories you do consume....the weight can come off.

We can provide more information, or stories about women who are losing weight in a healthy and successful manner. We can also provide examples of specific exercises targeted at these muscle groups, to get you started. Are you a member of a gym, or currently exercise? Can you tell us what your height and weight is, if you have any medical conditions, and how much weight you are wanting to lose? What is your timeline?

I am one of your physically flawed sisters! But there are ways around it. The best solution for me has been to do weight training at the gym. Lifting lighter weights for tone will not do it. You need to move up progressively to heavier weights--start as light as 1 or 2 pounds until you have the strength for more. Diet can sometimes help too, if you avoid sweets. Best of luck!
