HRT & Hips
« on: December 17, 2018, 06:44:51 pm »
Standing in front of my mirror... ( I've been on HRT for 8 months now ) I've noticed the obvious changes. Breast growth , hair, skin.... But I noticed something new tonight....
HIPS.... my love handles seem to be larger & seem to be filling out down toward my butt.... am I imagining this?? They have never looked like that before...

Chances are....it’s not your imagination!

I hope you don't imagine this as I'm hoping for something similar :)

If you wear loose pants they should “hang” and fit a bit differently if you acquire more fat at the hips and thighs.  You can see the difference.  You may wish to take a picture today in the same pants that you will wear maybe a month or two from now to see if they look different (hang) on you as compared to today’s picture.

Note that if you put on weight and fat all over or lose weight all over, that your pants will hang or fit differently on you too!

I have noticed my hips, too.  There are curves there where they didn't used to be.  And some slight "saddle bags" on my upper thighs. 

I haven't noticed any changes on my butt, but it is harder to see what is going on back there.  I always did have a cute butt, so it doesn't matter. :D

I still want to lose some weight before starting HRT. Currently around 170 lbs(77 kg), I want to reduce that to 143 lbs(65 kg) while still keeping some muscle. I'll try to document all the changes after that.

Speaking for myself, losing weight has made a significant difference in my waist to hip ratio. A smaller waist has made my hips look larger, even though the measured diameter of my hips has not changed much.

What has changed is the fat below my waist, which is due mainly to my Estradiol. My thighs are much more thicker and this has extended up to the gluteus maximus as well. With a well balanced diet and exercise that focuses on muscle groups below the waist, I have a reasonable figure without excess weight.

I'm almost 15 months on hrt and I think the curvature is becoming more defined.  I sort of pinch my sides a bit (where I could have lipo someday?) and it shows a slimmer waist that I really would like to have.  I haven't really been trying to lose weight because I'm always hungry :(
