why does one of my love handles stick out more than the other?

my hips are not even in the middle of my body anymore - one side sticks out more. have been working out recently, but am feeling a little lopsided.

so what can I do to get it back in the middle again? (it's quite noticable as well - never was an issue before)

can't be the only one surely?

i have one hip higher than the other, does everyone?
a while back friends were asking why i was limping, i didnt feel i was but it looked lie it.
went to see an osteopath and she sorted it out, slipping abit now though.
are you getting old like me?

Because you are lopsided, go and get sorted.

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:00:26

<whails deeply - I had a fab figure pre XH & DS!>

I bet you it's the hip you sit your child on when you are standing up. When I stand up (even without holding DD on hip) my right hip sticks out!!!!!

jezzemx Thu 10-Jul-08 21:24:33

I can look very lopsided grin

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:28:15

ooh er yes I think it is actually. bugger it - oh no it's not. it's the other side. or is it hmm. will have to spend tomorrow paying attention, yes I think ti is cos it's easy to sling him on that side.

You can develop a fatty lump in places that get a lot of pressure. So it could be baby-carrying. I had a huge lump removed from the left of my belly but still haven't worked out what caused it.

Well DTM if you will stand on the street corner with that hip stuck out , what do you expect grin

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:33:30

would it balance out if I carried DS on the other side?

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:34:26

OI shoshe! how very rude!

Shoshe Thu 10-Jul-08 21:36:28


davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:38:23

Shoshe Thu 10-Jul-08 21:41:40

Doing well, lovie, have you heard I'm running jogging walking every morning now, (blardy 5.45!!!) up the hill behind your old house along to the chuch, down SGT mess hill passed the refurbs and back home, EVERY morning!!!!!

I will be fit or dead

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 21:55:16

JESUS woman! lol. and I thought I was keen going to the gym 3/4 times a week. (ok so I only go to ogle really!)

that hill up racedown's a killer to do.

Shoshe Thu 10-Jul-08 22:03:53

yep doing it in 23 minutes now, not bad for a old bird who was finding it difficult to walk half a mile this time last year, started off slow just around the block, and built it up.

My mad little boys mum is training to be a personal trainer, so used me as a disabled subject, she reserched Lupus and Fibromylgia, and worked out what I could do, and started me off. Its going well now.

And have managed to lose half a stone as well!

davidtennantsmistress Thu 10-Jul-08 22:17:10

that's all good then. how far is it around? it's good either way - I seem to be loosing inches but not lb's - hmm, wonder if that's to do with still eating choc & chip butties!

Stand in front of a mirror, look at your shoulders, is one further down than the other? Hold your arms lightly by your side, is there a bigger gap between your arm and your body on one side? Yes? Get yee to an oestopath/chiropractor. Sorted.
