Embarrassing Fat Bodies Episode 1

Fat Pubis

Lynsey lost nearly eight stone over six years, and in the same time had three children by caesarean. This has left her with a disproportionately fat pubis. Lynsey is advised by Dr Christian that she must lose more weight before he can recommend her for surgery on the problem. We’ll revisit Lynsey later in the year to see how she’s getting on.

I am current losing weight through healthy eating amd A LOT of exercise. Like Lyndsey on the rerun on Really, I have a fat pubis. I am worried that I will lose weight from the rest of my body but mot this area and ill be stuck with it when I have reached a healthy weight. Will the weoght loss also come from this area or is the only way this area will be normal size through surgery? I am 5'7, 24 and currently 20st 7 looking to get to around 10-11st

Just like lynsey on the show I have a very large fatty pubis. It is now starting to affect my life. I can't wear leggings or tight jeans because it just sticks out too much and have had some horrible comments about it too.Also i split up from a long term relationship 6 months ago and want to start dating again but is too scared to take things further. I dont know what men will think of it. Is there any excercise i can do to help reduce the size?

I'm interested in the hypnosis where you are hypmotised into thinking you have had a gastric band. Can you get this done on the NHS? And if so where? Many Thanks Angela

I am 48 years old and had 4 children, i am quite young looking for my age but get so very depressed when i see my reflection in shop windows or mirrors. The problem started in my last marriage which was violent I lost everything and i mean everything, my self esteem,confidence,figure,wasent loved or liked. I started to put on weight due to the marriage problems and grew bigger with time, when we split up i went into refuges and lost 2 of my kids but i manages to shed all the weight and went down to a size 12to 14 and felt fantastic and looked it too. After meeting my current husband my health took a tumble and I comfort ate as well as binge eating mainly cakes and chicolate. The outcome is I am now back to 17stone a size 22 to 24 i feel ugly fat and have no self esteem and i always think my hubby will leave me as I have an over enlarged pubis and massive boobs a 42Fwhich are causing my back to suffer and my tummy is huge. Most the time I feel like crying and i hate myself as i feel so ugly my body is disgusting i always have diorrea or im constipated and although my hubby says he dont care what size i am he loves me as i am, i still dont believe him and think he wont make love to me as i look so repulsive. I am trying to diet but its so hard as i have a knee injury and a back injury making excercise difficult and im astmatic too. I just dont know what to do as i ve tried everything and if i had a surgeons knife i would cut the fat off myself just to be rid of.... nicola

Hi Susan, I was morbidly obese for almost 10 years and at my biggest I weighed 26 stone! I have now lost over 13 stone and am almost at my target weight. I lost this amount of weight over 2 years. The answer though is a boring one, eat healthy and 'do more'. With you having pains in your knees, swimming would be an excellent form of exercise that wont add pressure to your knees. Also, some gentle walking (perhaps with the aid of a stick or a support band on your knee). Doing only one change each day can make a difference to your weight and your happiness. Fad diets DO NOT work and the weight goes back on so much quicker (I tried them all too!) Try replacing snacks in your diet for a piece of fruit and my top top top tip is, when you feel hungry, drink a large glass of water first. Wait for 10 minutes. If you still feel hungry then eat something, if you dont feel hungry anymore, then your dehydrated. Drinking more water will definately help with your weight loss. Ive got loads more tips if you want them. Good luck to you! and post how your getting on. Emma x
