I'm 22 with a BMI of about 19. Never had a problem with my actual weight - hate fast food, don't drink much alcohol etc, BUT whilst at university (a couple of years ago now), I got into the habit of eating a LOT of chocolate etc when studying in the evenings.
I'm much healthier now, and whilst my diet isn't perfect it's ten times better than it was at university. I work out a lot - currently training for a half marathon, so am running at least three times a week and sometimes doing other stuff too like swimming. I also walk to work whenever I can (about 30-40 mins brisk walking each way).
Most of my body is in good shape - I have virtually no excessive fat on my arms, legs or stomach (just working on toning up). Fully clothed I have a great figure, or so people say. I get comments like 'you don't need to work out!'... then they see me in a bikini and are shocked because I have such a flabby bum! It's literally just fat hanging there. If you poke it it's just soft - no muscle tone whatsoever unless I tense my muscles, then it's a bit better.
I'm determined to sort this out but know you can't spot reduce fat. So if I want on a low-fat, weight-loss diet etc I'd surely lose weight all over and get scrawny!
So what can I do, other than resort to liposuction!? I'd really rather not go down that route but I don't know what I can do... any advice?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
