Day 191 A Guy's Issue, Over Versus Under

So I am pretty sure this is an issue only guys face. Well specifically fat guys I guess. The belt. Over the belly flap? Under the belly flap? I actually have seen multiple cases of both in my years. I was an under guy, even when I started having to tuck in my shirt when I got my job at the old law firm. I don't know that one is necessarily better than the other. You aren't hiding it when you go over, not really over accentuating by going under unless you don't tuck your shirt in and the flap is longer than your shirt. That was my biggest issue in clothes shopping. I had to buy t-shirts long enough to cover the flap up. I was that guy you always saw tugging at the bottom of his shirt to make sure it didn't ride up and people saw my "meat" as it was called one time when I was not vigilant enough.

Soooo, guess what. THIS IS NO LONGER AN ISSUE THAT FACES SHANE! I have noticed in the last week or so I am firming up in the belly area so much so that I can see my belt buckle when I tuck my shirt!! How cool am I??? On a related note, I have discovered that jogging is a great ab workout. It took me a minute to figure out how it was that my abs were getting so sore from jogging. I figured it out. Running is not walking. It is essentially you jumping from one foot to the next over and over, and when I do that, I have to twist in the middle. Oh man let me tell you! I have also noticed my booty is so sore as all get out too. It is a running joke that i have no booty around here, so now it has evolved to I am building a booty for Kathy!

  1. LOL, good post. I'm an under guy, although it forces me to get really tall shirts. I also find that the belt buckle really digs into my lower abdomen then. Over just doesn't feel right though. Cheers, Rick

  3. Good stuff. I know my husband was asking me the same thing about the belt until he lost his belly. I think under, unless the belly is pretty small, then I think over can be good. Congrats on your ab pain!!! Here's a kicker-when you do ANY workout, try sucking in your stomach. Pretty soon you will forget you are doing it and it will stay tight like that.

  4. I've got a double dose of booty, so I can't relate to that, but I do wish you luck in your quest for more booty! Er, make that luck in your quest for developing more booty on yourself. You're making amazing changes!

  6. Shane, I know exactly what you are talking about. It was so great to get to that point where this wasn't a problem anymore. I know you are feeling the same.
