Will I always have four boobs?

    Sorry about the title, but it's how I feel!
    Doing really well on L and loving it still after 6 weeks. I've lost a total of 30lbs, including what I'd lost pre-LL. I'm now just over 12 stone - lightest I've pretty much EVER been (well all my adult life anyway).
    THe thing is that I bought a size 14 pair of jeans yesterday (AMAZING - I actually cried!) but my top half is still very large. Mainly this is due to what I call my second pair of boobs. Hard to describe but it is where my baby bump was and where a spare tyre should be - I have what look like an extra pair! My main boobs are very large (34H, down from 38JJ) and I think it may be the weight of them that has left these other 'boobs' underneath. When I was pregnant, my lower belly/abdomen didn't stretch at all, all my stretchmarks and growth were directly under my chest.
    Anyway, I'm waffling! My question is, will they ever go? If I get to target (9st10lbs) will I still have these extra boobs to contend with? They make it impossible to wear anything that is fitted, clingly or even A-line (makes me look 8 months pregnant).
    I'm really not worried about the stretchmarks or saggy skin as I never intend to go naked in front of anyone other than my husband, but these extra 'lumps' and 'humps' will really bother me I think.

    Thanks,
    :)

    Oh hun, i hope not!

    Surely, at your target weight these will have gone. Maybe some toning exercise may help?? I don't know really, someone will come along soon that can offer more i'm sure.

    I had similar thoughts not so long ago but they've almost gone now - need to do some more exercise to sort them out properly however! I'm also hoping my skin will tighten up a bit which should improve matters. I gather it takes a few months for the skin to catch up with the weight loss. As I never intend to bare my midriff I'm OK now - I'm sure you'll find things improve as the weight drops off.

    You know what I think they will go. It is so amazing how your body changes each week. I still have a BIG tummy but even though ithas gone down a lot it is still there however even though I have lost all of my weight now and am on managment my body is still changing !

    People are telling me that I am wasting away ( I truly am not!) but I think it is all catching up with the numbe rof pounds I have lost. I put on a size 12 trousers today - they fit last week but today they are loose !

    Why not seek out a class and ask the trainer to give you some toning exercises that will help.

    Sorry to waffle !!!!

    I agree, I think they'll go too. They will change as your body tones, they're probably the part that's holding the last of your fat - I'm sure you'll see a big difference.
