"From what everyone tells me this
is the first place to lose... not for me."
I don't know where you have heard this from but it is completely false.
During weight loss the last place we lose the weight from are the "problem
areas" where our bodies have genetically (hormonally) decided to store the bulk
of our body fat.
Everyone has "problem areas" and focus on them but fat loss occurs from the
entire body. For your situation is is very important to know your body fat
If your body fat percentage lies in the low ranges and you still feel your
bust size is too large, you are a prime candidate for a breast reduction
If your body fat percentage is still in the high ideal, average or overfat
category on the chart, you still have hope that exercise will reduce your bust
All you need to find a good estimate of your body
composition is a
simple Accu-Measure skinfold caliperand you can do it yourself in about
As far as exercise goes, weight training itself will not
reduce or increase your bust size directly. What you are thinking of is
testosterone which is what reduces the bust size in female bodybuilders.
Women have a very low level of testosterone and weight
training increases it naturally very slightly, which does not reduce breast
size, but when bodybuilders take in exogenous testosterone their breasts
unnaturally reduce in size along with the other side effects.
If you still have weight loss weight training belongs in
your exercise program. Talk to your doctor about the options but make sure
you know if your body still has some fat loss to go.
