    Just like you literally cannot lose fat from one specific area of the body, you also literally cannot choose where the fat goes when you gain weight. It's not possible. No one in the history of the world has ever been able to JUST gain weight in their breasts or their butt.

    Fat goes where your body -- not your brain -- tells it to get stored.

    You CAN choose to build certain muscles to bulk up certain areas of the body. That's what you need to be focusing on.

    I will try to do that. Thanks

    I am not exactly sure who you mean by "celebrities". There are plenty of beautiful celebrities out there who carry perfectly normal amounts of body fat and still look great. If you are talking about models like Victoria Secret models, then as many have mentioned, unfortunately that is not a realistic goal for most of us.

    First off, looking like that is their job. Which means they spend most of their day working to attain that look. Multiple personal training sessions, personal chefs, nutritionists, etc. Not only do they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on their bodies, but they spend many hours a day. Those of us that have to work for a living don't have that luxury unfortunately. Not only that, but although you say "they weren't born that way," and that is true in the sense that they didn't look like that when they were babies, many of them were born with certain genetic advantages that dictate where their fat and weight fall on them.

    However that doesn't mean that isn't necessarily progress you can make in your journey. Eat a small calorie deficit, be active and do a combo of both strength training and cardio, and see where it takes you. If you stick with it long term and don't get discouraged by every tiny change in your body, you may find that it leads you to a level of success, one I hope you will be able to be happy with, and not always strive to attain the unattainable.

    Unfortunately though, nothing will magically make fat travel from your waist to your butt.

    Thanks

    Dear Posters,

    Just a reminder about the public forum guidelines:

    The forum guidelines include this item:
    4. Keep it Classy (we mean your images)
    I WILL:
    • I will keep it classy by wearing tight-fitting spandex instead of my undies to show my progress.
    • I will post authentic photos that I have permission to use.
    • I will be mindful that this is a workplace friendly site. If you wouldn’t share the image with your boss or your child, please don’t post it here.

    I WON’T:
    • I won’t post nudity, pornography, or NSFW images.
    • I won’t post close-up shots of cleavage, butt, breasts or crotch in any state of dress.
    • I won’t post photos in my undies (underwear, bras, lingerie, thongs, g-strings, or banana hammocks).
    If you would like to review the forum guidelines, please visit the following link:

    These rules apply even if you're posting celebrity pictures.

    If you want to develop your behind, the Strong Curves program by Bret Contreras is designed for exactly that purpose.
    You have got them already - so work with what you have got.

    You are not to tell me what I want for myself. You don't know where it is going to take me too
    I think the person you replied to meant you already have the body of a celeb. I agree with him that you do, but I do recognise that it's not the body of a celebrity you admire.

    A few people have said it here already but you can not pick and choose where you gain weight, the same way we can't pick or choose where we lose weight.

    The best thing that has already been suggested is to do resistance training/weight training. The Strong Curves program is great for developing your glutes. On top of that I would probably suggest doing ab workout as well.

    You may not look exactly the same as a certain celebrity but it can help you achieve a similar look as most of celebs bodies are down to money and mostly genetics

    This. It's like saying I want the athleticism of Tia-Clair Toomey, except she literally does that for her job, and I don't.

    I had to go Google.


    WOW!!!
