    Am I the only person that even after trying, still has weird lumps and bumps in places?

    I want to have a figure like this....
    (forgive me for the terrible diagrams!)

    ( )( )
    )....(
    (.....)

    but even after dropping into my bmi range i'm more like this:

    ( )( )
    )... (
    (....)
    ( ....)

    I cannot seem to get a really smooth silhoutte, theres like my hip bones then i come in, the go out again at the thighs.

    Anyone have any ideas what i can do?

    i'd guess it is just the way the fat and muscle is distributed on ur body, if this is the case theres not really much u can do except maybe try to lose more weight, but since ur already at a very good bmi this probably wouldnt be a good idea. there are probably some exercises you could do to try to smooth ur silhouette but im not 100% what they are, but then the thing with exercise is that if u overdo it u will get more muscley (for example in ur legs) which might just emphasise the shape u dont like. i'll have a poke around on google and see if theres any suggestions on there :)

    cant find a lot except for love handles which i dont think is any good to u lol

    have u thought maybe the "weird lumps and bumps" u mentioned arent as bad as u think? maybe ur being too critical of urself and need to learn to love the new slim line you :D it could be the "lumps" etc are normal but cuz u r noticing them, u think theyre worse than they really are

    by the way, well done on the weight loss hun x

    I think with exercise you can make improvements but it is still a matter of working with what you have rather than completely changing your shape. I also have the double hips thing you talk about and even when i was thinner i still did. The only thing that helps with it is magic knickers/tights!!

    you have the same body type as me!

    its annoying with low rise jeans, even though they fit right it looks as though ive got overhang whn its my natural shape...
    the kind of figure i want is
    ()()
    ! !
    ! !

    straight down, no curves.... but my hips dont let this be possible LP

    I think I would go for clever clothes choice to fool everyone into thinking you have achieved that fab figure. Love your illustration by the way.
