If you could click your fingers and lose weight instantly, how much would you choose to drop?

I weighed myself this morning and am 11lbs over my usual weight. The extra weight is leftover from having dc4. I have have not made any real effort to get to this point (a fair bit has been lost so far- not sure how much as have not been weighing myself) but I wish i could click my fingers and vanish this last bit. The extra pounds are sitting on my tummy, arse, thighs and hips. I would like the squishy bits to be banished!

If you could drop weight instantly, how much would you shift and where on your body would it come from?

I would click my fingers and make weight become a non-issue. I would make it so that weight didn't affect people's health, well-being or self-esteem. I would make eating disorders and the sadness that they bring disappear and make everyone feel happy, sexy, empowered and loved. <Twirls around with magical, feminist wand>. <Wonders if twirling with a magic wand is feminist>. <Stops twirling>.

I am willing to predict the majority of unwanted fat will be on lower body.
Am I being unreasonable to wish fat was better distributed? I would welcome 11lbs on my tits.

Half a stone, but ideally I wouldn't lose it, it would just move up to my boobs instead of lingering around my belly and my arse.

8 stone blush

Though Im not sure I would look right. Thats what I need to lose to get to the weight I should be.

I would be happy with 4.

Off my belly and hips. But I dont want to lose my boobs.

Ha! X posted.

TheReturnOfBridezilla Thu 06-Dec-12 16:56:38

Half a stone and I would be perfectly happy.

Hmm, not sure on exact amount of weight but I'm currently size 18 and would prefer 14/16.

OTTMummA Thu 06-Dec-12 16:57:22

I'd be happy and healthier with 50lbs gone, I would be just right with 110lbs gone :S

2 stone. Then I would be back at the weight I was when I had DS 14 years ago (8 st 3).

I've already lost 1.5 stone. I'd become a right porker!

Yes to fat distribution.

I'm happy with my weight but I wouldn't mind 2 inches off my backside being transferred to my boobs.

Alibabaandthe40nappies Thu 06-Dec-12 16:58:17

2.5 stone. And if the c-section overhang could miraculously disappear at the same time, that would be great!

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 06-Dec-12 16:58:50

Start twirling Dozy.

GrimmaTheNome Thu 06-Dec-12 16:58:59

I'd lose about 20lb of fat - tum, thighs, legs but also some from the upper arm which with another click I'd transform into muscle.grin

TinyDancingHoofer Thu 06-Dec-12 16:59:05

MAybe a stone, haven't weighed myself in a while but would like to be somewhere between 7 and 7.5 stone. Or stay the same weight but be super toned.
