If I told you that there was a way for you to make your waist smaller in 4 weeks would you be interested? Of course you would, what women wouldn’t want to lose a couple of inches around her midsection. This post is to simply give you a few tips that you can use every day that will both help give you a smaller waist and the illusion that your waist has gotten smaller.
This are just simple tips and tricks that women can use. Of course there are others so feel free to post what else you to help your own waistline!
It may sound crazy, but the first things you must do is realize and accept the reasons your waist is the way it is in the first place. Until you face the fact that overeating and not exercising is the cause of your weight gain its not going to go anywhere.
Show the legs
Show off those wonderfully toned legs with those nice Jimmy Choo heels. Wearing heels and showing the legs will draw the attention away from your waist and put more emphasizes on you toned sexy legs. A great outfit would be a long straight jacket with a shorter skirt and some 4” inch heels.
Yes it’s that simple just eating better will give you a smaller waist in no time at all. And by eating better I am not just talking about better then you did yesterday but overall. Just because you cut your calories back doesn’t mean you are going to lose weight. If you are overeating by 1500 calories daily then cutting back 500 calories isn’t enough to lose weight.
Show off your shoulders
That’s right making sure shoulders more noticeable. Showing off your beautiful shoulders and adding dramatic jewelry and scarves will have the eyes looking upward instead of at your waist. By making your shoulders more visible and notice will give the illusion of an hourglass shape.
Exercise – Of course you knew this was a must have in order to get that waist smaller. Exercising is the second most important to tool to a smaller waist behind eating better foods and intake less calories. The key here is starting slow and so the you are able to do something you can maintain. It serves you no purpose if you do a workout for two weeks and then stop.
Wearing belts is another key in helping to slim that waistline. Darker shades tend to help focus the eyes inward giving again the “illusion” of a smaller thinner waist. Brightly colored belts tend to do just the complete opposite, as they on the other hand can make your waist appear larger. So to be safe choose belts that fit well in shades of black or dark brown.
Make it a one piece or a full skirt
A one piece or a full skirt worn with a strong shouldered top with a nice dark waist clinching belt will help give the illusion of a smaller waistline. The emphasis on the shoulders and the width of the skirt will give you the hourglass appearance.

No matter where I am when weight loss comes up the area between thighs of most women is sure to be a subject of conversion. Many women are desperately looking for a way to get rid of the inner thigh fat. Sadly this is not a region that you can just exercise and tone to have the weight disappear.
Don’t just focus on losing your inner thighs! For the most part that is the last part that anyone will ever see in the first place. Making sure you are losing weight at a healthy pace and making sure you happy are the two most important pieces of the puzzle.
The Key to Inner Thigh Fat
Inner thigh fat is no different from the rest of the fat on your body. Ladies the inner fat on your thighs is just like the fat on your belly, arms and back. It’s an accumulation of excess calories from foods that you ate and where unable to burn off. In other words you ate more calories than necessary for your body and your body decided to store it as fat.
Why does it Go There?
Well, unfortunately ladies, your bodies were designed to store more fat in your waist, hips and thigh region as oppose to men. Estrogen causes more fat to be stored in the butt, thighs, and hip area in women during their early years and as you age and estrogen levels decrease and fat stores in the waist.
The key to losing inner thigh fat is all in your diet and calorie intake. However you must understand that no matter how you try and no matter what anyone else tells you, there is no way to choose where your body loses fat. For most of you, the place where you want to lose the fat will probably be that last place that it well ”look” like you are losing it from.
Stick With It!
Fat loss takes time, effort, patience, and proper dieting. You can still enjoy the foods you like just be reasonable. For most women simply cutting back on the calories and exercising will get you the results you are looking for. The biggest problem is cutting back enough calories that will cause you to actually lose weight. Believe me for a lot of women it requires eating a lot less then you are currently eating.
Types of Shapes
Hourglass shape: The female body is significantly narrower in the waist in both the front and profile view. The waist is narrower than the chest region due to the breasts, and narrower than the hip region due to the width of your bum.(hourglass shapes are considered the most attractive)
Apple: The stomach region is wider than the hip section.
Pear or bell: The hip section is wider than the upper body.
Banana: The hip, waist, and shoulder sections are relatively similar.

How To Get Rid Of Flabby Arms
By Marc David
Hats off to a very brave woman who stepped up and finally wanted to get rid of the flabby arms and the sooner the better. Luckily for her, this problem is quite common and the solution is quite simple and two-fold. Working to get rid of flabby arms comes with overall fitness but there’s some specific exercises you can do in addition to reducing body fat that will bring those arms into super shape once again.
On just another normal day, I received an email with a cry for help.
“I would like to know how to build up the muscle around the humerous bones of the upper arms. I would like to know how to build up the muscle around the humerous bones of the upper arms. I want to get rid of flabby upper arms!”
The muscle that is most problematic for flabby arms is called: The Tricep
Most women think of these things when it comes to that area:
* flabby arms * exercise for flabby arms * tone flabby arms * how to get rid of flabby arms * flabby arm help * flabby upper arms * etc
There are really two key concepts to that particular predicament. Keep in mind that this is such a common question so you are certainly not alone in this. But just keep reading because the answer is pretty simple and may surprise you!
First, get the idea out of your head that there’s any such thing as ‘spot reduction.’ Meaning, if you do certain exercises for that area, the fat will magically disappear just from there and your arms will suddenly be taunt and tone again. Let me give you a real quick lesson on fat. Don’t worry this is going to be easy.
Your body stores fat. It stores it in general areas that are common to you as a female. Most men store the most fat in their stomachs. Women tend to store it in their thighs, hips and buttocks. But with anything, you can and will store fat wherever. So the first thing you want to do is…
Reduce the body fat period!
Once you start to reduce fat, you’ll see it disappear. Don’t bother with creams and rubs and all the other gimmicks out there. You cannot spot reduce. Your body stores fat and the only way to reduce fat in any particular area that is bothering you is to reduce fat period from your body as a whole.
For all these reasons,…
Your first mission, should you choose to accept it, is to reduce the body fat.
Second, in order for that area of your arm to become tone, you’ll want to build muscle in the back of the arm. That is called the Tricep and there’s several good exercise you can do to build up that area.
But first, let me give you a list of some of the best exercises for flabby arms that will focus on the tricep and help you develop the area and make it stronger. This isn’t all inclusive but it’s some of the more common and better exercises you can do for the back of the arms.
* Weighted dips * Close grip bench press * Close grip push ups * Lying barbell French press * Overhead cable extensions * Cable press downs * Reverse cable press downs
Many people are caught up in the idea that in order for them to get rid of a problematic area they need to just work it out and do some exercises to target that area.
But that’s only half of the solution as you’ve read.
By working out the area AND reducing body fat, you will progress at twice the speed and make twice the visual differences.
Let’s suppose you only worked out the back of the arms. The muscle would be stronger and firmer no doubts, but it might not show IF your level of body fat is such that the muscle is still covered up.
As you see, by doing both, you will tone up (build) the tricep and make it more visible when the layer of fat that covers it up is reduced.
Men and women who want to reduce the ‘flabby’ anything simply have to realize that it’s a combination of body fat in that area, maybe loose skin and a muscle that generally needs to be developed in order to be taunt.
But I’m getting way ahead of myself!
This is a two fold mission.
1- Reduce body fat
2- Do specific exercises to build muscle in the back of the arm so that once the fat is gone, you’ll have a tricep and it will appear tight and tone
In a nutshell what this will do for you is make the back of your arms less flabby as the fat is lost from your body and the new muscle will bring added tone and tightness to the back of your arm.

Get rid of love handles for Good!
Rid love handles from your life by making sure you do what’s needed! Don’t know what you should be doing? Well you are not alone as there are millions of women who are looking for answers on how they can get those love handles to just go away. Don’t get caught up in silly games or tricks thinking that they will help you lose your love handles.
The term rid love handles is a heavily discussed topic on the internet. The tough thing is finding a good source of helpful info. I do my best to locate helpful articles and post them on my site. While cruising online I found a good article on Ezinarticles.com. If you have a few minutes, take the time to read this one.
How to Get Rid of Love Handles
Love handles are a growing problem (pardon the pun) for many men and women these days. Love handles is basically a nice way to describe the fat that accumulates on each side of waist.
Media Deception about Love Handles
Many people are unaware or misinformed on how to successfully banish those annoying love handles. Abdominal machine manufactures know people’s desperation and play upon this heavily. Once you receive the product you will notice in the fine print of the accompany booklet that a healthy diet should be used with the item for optimal results. Obviously!
Bodybuilders in the past never relied on fancy gadgets to get that desired six-pack. It has always been, and will always be about nutrition, cardio, and abdominal training.
Three Elements that Help to Rid Love Handles
The accumulated fat that widens your waist never seems to dissipate no matter how many crunches or how much abdominal work you do, right? I can let you in on some little secrets on how to rid those saddles that have been weighing you down.
Step #1 – Since love handles are an accumulation of body fat, you have to clean up your eating habits. For some people this will be simply omitting the obvious junk food and for others it will require lower calories. Others will reap benefits from carb-rotation. Most of all, quality nutrition is the ultimate key.
Step #2 – Increase your cardiovascular exercise. I’m not suggesting hop on the elliptical and tear into it for two hours a day. Simply increase what you are currently doing a small amount, and challenge yourself weekly.
Step #3 – Train your abdominals. Abdominal work will strengthen the muscle under the fat. With the addition of developed abdominals comes increased circulation, and can aid in burning fat indirectly.
Abdominal Training Techniques – The Do’s and Don’ts
The Don’ts for Ab Training
Don’t Twist – Twisting from side to side with a stick or anything in this category can widen your waist.
Don’t Do Side Bends – Side bends, weighted or not, can add size to your waist, making it thicker.
Don’t Do Hanging Leg Raises or Knee-Ups – These do not even come close to targeting the lower abdominal as many believe. These actually work the sartorius muscle that runs down the leg.
Don’t Add Resistance Unless You Genetically Have a Small Waist – Some people can add resistance to their crunches (rope crunches), if their waist is genetically small. Those who lack natural symmetry and have blocky shapes should avoid abdominal resistance.
Ab Exercises to Do
Forget all the fancy abdominal variations that leave you more confused than when you began. Focus on these four ab exercises and you will target the entire abdominal muscle fully.
1. Stomach Vacuums – The stomach vacuum is an effective exercise for working the ab muscles that are rarely targeted. Stand upright and pull your stomach in and hold it there for as long as possible. Repeat three times.
2. Lying Pelvic Lifts – Lie flat on your back and put your legs in the air so that your body is in the “L” position. Slowly, and in a controlled manner, raise your hips off the floor an inch or two, and then return to starting position.
3. Modified Crunches – Lie on the floor with legs crossed Indian style and crunch.
4. Elbow to Opposite Knee Crunch – These target the obliques. Lie on the floor with knees in bent position and crunch your elbow to the opposite knee.
Once you get your diet in gear, omit the exercises that can widen your waist and incorporate the effective abdominal exercises, you’ll be on your way to a slimmer waist in no time.
