My husband sometimes asks me, "Do I look fat?" The answer is yes, but I don't know how to say "yes." Should I tell him the truth?
Here's the context: For several years he has been hitting the gym hard. 5x/week at Crossfit, and currently in training for his third marathon. He went from a skinny, twiggy guy to a mass of muscle. He looks great, feels great, is healthy (we are vegan but do drink lots of beer on the weekends)... but as his muscles have grown, his belly has, too. It's big and looks fatty, even though the rest of him is muscly. [more inside]
Sent my spouse on an errand to buy pork ribs for dinner. He came back without ribs, as the butcher didn't have any, but the butcher instead sold him pork belly with the skin cut off saying it's "the same thing, just no bones." While I'm not opposed to pork belly generally I'm not sure how I should cook it to still get the BBQ fix I'm going for. Details inside; advice requested. [more inside]

How do I lose this belly? I am small framed 5' 4" 115 lb female with a tummy. Everyone is always making comments about how small I am, they don't see my problem spot because I hide it with pleats or under a shirt.
I have been doing pilates for 7 months 5 days a week targeting my belly and thighs. I really can't tell a difference, maybe it is a little smaller. My waist is trim, it is below my belly button I have the problem. I am currently taking probiotic supplement but can not tell a difference. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I just had my very first belly dance class and discovered I'm a bit clueless when it comes to what the instructor is actually doing with her feet and her hands. And her chest. Pretty much everything she's doing mystifies me a bit, actually. Any recommendations for a very good, very basic Belly Dance dvd that I can practice with, or other resources that might help me get the moves down?
