Poor Mark -- he may have opened a can of worms today. Granted it was more of an "intro to" than a "definitive guide," but when he started describing female fat physiology, i started ticking off items -- one after another -- that not only fail to describe my body NOW, but consistently fail to describe its performance EVER.
You know where the most annoyingly persistent fat is on my body? The upper back. Where i lose fat first? My hips. Where i'd LOVE to lose some weight, and can't seem to? My boobs.
I've always had a comparatively flat stomach, though two pregnancies and an abdominal surgery have left it looking rather like a weathered WWI battlefield. My legs are almost embarrassingly muscular, and i have a strong butt and longisimus dorsi muscles (tenderloin). My flexed biceps promise more power than my upper body actually has, and my lower arms both promise and deliver strength. In my slender youth, i never had a "nipped" waist, but it's decently defined now.
But i sweartogod i'm a woman....
(One that hates generalizations.)
