What's Worse: Cankles or Back Fat?

What's Worse: Cankles or Back Fat?

It seems like every time I turn around there's another body part I'm supposed to be obsessed with. First it was love handles, then arm flappage (what--there's not a name for this awful affliction yet?!), double chin, etc. And I've already shown you that some clothes make all this even worse (hello, low rise jeans!) Well, now there are a couple more to add to the roster. (You may have heard of these--they're news to me.) What's worse?

Whenever I am feeling down about the way I look, I'm going to look up these photos.. whew.. I would have to say backfat. It's not easy to hide.

Yeah MO that is a little joke. People stress over all these little things that amount to nothing. When I was young I had a body like a brick sh*thouse. But did I appreciate it? No. I was embarrassed to be in a bikini, I weighed 95 lbs. it's just crazy. If I knew then what I know now, I would have spent years 18-30 completely naked. (joke, kind of) So if you're young and want to flaunt it, do it and take pictures so you can look back and enjoy them!

Back fat!! What has horrified me now is: while on the elliptical at the gym, I've been watching myself in the mirror, and I notice that my backfat will jiggle with each step. I am probably only about 5 lb 'overweight' too even though my BMI is within normal range. SO SO gross!! It's become an obsession of mine to GET RID of it!!

Cankles aren't always because someone is heavy. Let's just get that out of the way. If I have to walk for more than an hour my legs and ankles swell something terrible. But there's a medical reason for that. I can't think of any medical reasons for back fat. Enjoy your perfect bodies now while you can! :)

I absolutely love the photos you found as examples... perfecto... both have that essence of "I'm disgusted but can't look away." I'm way more afraid of cankles lady, though.

Cankles are scary as hell, but back boobs are clearly scarier: [

I had to say back fat because I was afraid if I said cankles, the woman in the picture above might hit me with her tire iron. _________________________ Cheese It!!

I say backfat, because one CAN dress to hide that more than the cankles. We're stuck with what we get genetically, but some people just don't dress for their body; they just dress for what they want to wear, which isn't always the best idea. I've said it before and I'll say it again: We all need to really look in the mirror before walking out of the house. Seriously!

back fat... you can wear pants that cover the cankles but back fat is pretty noticeable all the time.

I'd say back fat is probably worse because even if you're wearing a jumper if its bad it can still be seen - not necessarily so in jeans Oh and in the UK arm flab is often referred to as 'bingo wings' (at least it is in the midlands)

That's the spirit, redegg! Let's focus on men's physical flaws instead! ;)

I say back fat... but I have a slight case of cankles thanks to my grandmother's unshapely legs. And no they don't really go away but they do get smaller when you lose weight. I would say that I'm a small size but when you look at my foot and ankle in a high heeled shoe it looks like it belongs to a larger woman. Its weird!

I think Ims is right. So, I voted for cankles because, people can get rid of back fat. I think some people just have no amount of dieting and exercise can lose those (but, I'm not positive). :?

back fat is far worse - it's a lot easier to hide cankles :)
