This is Day 25 of my challenge to get a 6 pack.
What does fat loss feel like, is it painful?
I’ve done a brief search but I’m unable to find anything that describes adequately the physical sensation I feel when I lose weight.
I don’t feel it anywhere else except around my love handles near the top of my hip bone and at the sides under my rib cage.
I haven’t felt it at any time other than when I’m on a diet and losing fat.
It’s best described as a sensation because it just about falls short of pain and it doesn’t last for longer than a minute. It almost feels like a very mild burning or itching sensation, or possibly tingling.
Initially I reasoned the cause was muscular, but I’m not so sure because I don’t recall having this feeling at any other time.
There is an element of tenderness in the same area, but why don’t I feel the same tenderness or burning sensation elsewhere on my body.
Is it possible that fat loss causes pain?
Can you actually feel fat being ‘burned’ when you’re burning fat?
If anyone has the answer to this I’d love to hear it.

This is me today 25th February 2012
Sorry! This is the worst picture taken so far. None of them have been great (I’m using a camera phone) but this one is horrible.
I wouldn’t have posted it at all, but I promised myself I’d post a picture every day and I intend to keep that promise.
Perhaps I should get one of the those orange tans that everyone else seems to get? (BTW… That’s never gonna happen!)
This is me a the start of the challenge
And as I was at 205 pounds
