    Feeling fat deposits in my stomach?

    Hey guys / gals

    See if you can help me please. I am not an obese guy. About 5' 9" 169 Ibs 35 years old. I am fairly slender with slight love handles and maybe a few inches that I can pinch in the abdominal section. Have had this about 15 years now. However, since I have been on a high protein diet (lots of high protein foods and high protein shakes X 2 months) I have started to put on some muscle, and my waste line is starting to slinder a bit. BUT, when I pinch up my fatty area in my waste line around my belly button, I am starting to feel some weird lumps. Not sure how to explain this. But when I pinch up the skin it feels like there are a few things inside the skin. Its like this all through my wastline area. Do you think this is fat deposits trying to break loose?

    Anyone that was very heavy that lost a bunch of weight care to answer this? Did this happen to you? Should I be excited that I can now feel this? Not sure if this is a good sign or I might just be imagining this LOL.

    The slight lumps that I feel are not hard. Just ... well.. lumpy.

    Thanks for the answers.

    Pretty normal. I dropped from ~20% to upper 12% body fat in the last 4 months and I have the same thing. When I pinch the skin it you can feel fat nodules. I dont know that it is good or bad for sure, but I have heard some saying it is a sign your body is breaking down the fat. However, I dont know this is actually true.

    I think everyone with a sufficient layer of fat has these. I think what you're feeling is the supportive connective tissue of the fat. Some people might call it cellulite.

    The good news is that this stuff also seems to go away with fat loss.

    Don't pinch too much or you will bruise :P!!!
    Last time I cut I had a lot of these at the end of my cut on my abs. Not sure if they are nodes of fat or what. They will bruise if you play with them too much.

    Ok, just an update on my fat deposit looking nodule progress

    I think my calculations are correct. Thats what I was indeed feeling were fat deposits. I can see my top two abs now and their is still an inch of fat covering my lower set of abs around belly button. When I press down on my fat area I can literally see the deposits in my skin. Weird? I am getting excited! First time in my life that I can see a great change now. I am now gaining muscle lines in my abdominal cavity and loosing fat lines where my belly use to hang over. Its now a flat type of fat. Does that make since? Anyways, If any of you ever feel the lumps where you didn't feel it before. This is indeed a good thing!

    Yep very normal from my understanding quest. I can still feel them with my fingers when I pinch. The weirdest looking part of it all is the tiny bulges (almost like bbs) when I press my fat down.

    I was considering purchasing Scivations Sesamin. I researched this product alot and was wanting to get some opinions. Do any of you think that this product will help mobilize these fat deposits a little faster?

    Wow

    Took me a long time to find someone on the internet talking about this stuff and seeing it as a positive! I myself have lost a lot of weight, over 50lbs in about 2 years. I also put on that weight in the span of a few months before that. Needless to say my body was pissed at me but we're all good now I have stretch marks (anything around to help with those?) and the lumps you guys are speaking of. Has anyone noticed the actual lumps disappearing? I have one in the shoulder that is messing with my mobility, and one in the belly button that seemed to have popped, or something. It feels very strange and I'm hoping it goes away...

    Thanks guys and I'm happy to be joining your forum!

    Strange to have them "messing" with your mobility. If you can, have a doctor check them out. It's worth the $20 co-pay for peace-o-mind.
