    Alright so I was pushing past 240 pounds 2 summers ago, I was 6 foot at the time. I was a pig, but I cleaned up my act and 2 years later i weighed in at 175lbs & 6ft2. Im not much of a gym guy, but I took up dance. Hip hop/crunk/& even a bit of belly dancing (don't judge me). I do push ups and every now and then at the house.
    175 is ideal for my height, I guess, but after all the weight I've lost there's still that undesirable flabby areas. On my chest and lower abdominal area especially. I wouldn't even call it fat, but it does seem that way. There's something better under all I it, that's all I know. I've went through routines of 100 pushup days, and mad cardio but still... How long do i have to do that to get results? Should I look into heavy weight lifting?

    Anyway, my question is- what's the best way to lose flab? Surgery isnt an option and I'd love to hear advice from someone who lost a similar amount of weight. Thanks in advance.

    First of all, congratulations on your transformation. It's hard work that you've done. I had the same problem and, wanting to get down into the 85 kg class for Olympic lifting, I started running. Even though that's not what Lifters are supposed to do as it affects strength (so I'm told), it hasn't bothered my strength. I've lost 2" around the stomach and 20 more lbs. My squats, clean and jerks, and snatches are better than ever.

    Thanks for the tips guys. The inflamatory foods was a good call, I guess I THOUGHT my diet was good, but apparantly not. And I just started running, so let's see how that works out.
    & Im not sure what lotions you're referring to, but I'll definitely google some that helps the issue.

    Anyway thanks again guys, much appreciated. Im liking the site hear and I'll be sticking around for motivation.
