    We sound a lot alike. I am definitely not a 'red delicious" apple! I only like my legs, everything else holds weight. My baby is 3 so no more excuses about 'baby weight" :)

    I think its maybe weird because after people lose weight they don't look like an apple? I'm all belly....like ALL belly. My legs are like 2-3 pants sizes smaller than my "waist" aka pudge. I'm broad chested and hold weight in my arms too. GRRRR.

    That is TOTALLY me....I hate it. Occasionally I will find pants that fit right but it is rare.

    I appreciate all the pics to this!! Gives me hope my belly will go down!

    <--- This is my before and after. Started in 2008. The after is this year. As you see, I still have a long long journey to go. I would lose a lot faster if I would stop lifting weights (like that will ever happen). Anyway, I jokingly say I am an apple on a stick since my legs look so good.

    Only issue I keep having is that plus sized jeans are made for the typical big girl with full hips, thighs, etc. So jeans/pants balloon on me. Oh well, that will change soon... I hope.

    Everyone Looks great! I am also an apple belly with PCOS, Ive lost about 5lbs and my body is now somewhat cut in the waist with bigger hips. I have also thinned out in my face while losing some of those annoying PCOS symptoms

    Im apple shaped too and even more so after giving birth. No before or afters yet as I as I am still in the before stage at 246lbs (5'8") but I have lost 16lbs so far. My heaviest was 2 days before having my son at 296. 2 weeks after delivery I went down to 262lbs (I had a lot of water retention and swelling) and now 6 weeks post partum Im at 246lbs.
