    HI ALL!
    just need an opinion really.

    I've recently gained a little weight and i'm trying to lose it. I cycle up to 25 miles 2-3 times a week, play football every wednesday and i am dieting using a calorie defecit of 1500 kcal per day.

    Weight is coming off from my stomach, but not my chest.
    what's up with it?

    Please, can someone look at the photos of my "man boobs" and assess if they are a serious problem or not?

    I haven't looked at your pictures as that website is blocked from work, however I had similar concerns as my 'mosoms' seem less reluctant to shift than the rest of me. I spoke to the GP and she said that when you lose weight, the chest is one of the last areas it will go from. And it doesn't matter how many press-ups, pec exercises etc you do, it won't make any difference (she really cheered me up!).

    Occasionally, it can be actual breast tissue rather than fat and then you might need a hormone test to check testoterone levels and perhaps even a chromosome test too. But it's most likely just persistent fat. If you're concerned, your doctor should be happy to give you a check-up.

    Generally, the first place you gain is the last place you lose. So think back, did you get the moobs first? :) for me it's my upper arms and thighs (female). Those are the first to come and the last to go. :(

    I'd say speak to your doctor if you're concerned, otherwise as others have mentioned, chest is generally the last area that fat is removed from.
