Is this a hair issue or a shape/size issue?

Just messin' around.. are you currently on an exercise program? What
are you used to doing as far as training? Lots of things you can start
doing. And like Pez said, diet is a big one. Give us some info..

Sounds like you need some resistance training. Anything that gets your
glutes working in a mostly full range of motion with resistance with
build and tone your glutes. Squats, deadlift, lunges, kettlebell
swings, etc. The Elliptical probably give you a good cardio workout
but not enough resistance for toning and building the muscle. Also, if
you're taking in more calories than you're burning with the Elliptical,
you're still going to gain fat. It gets harder and harder to maintain
good muscle tone as you get older also. An overall full body
resistance workout with tone you up all over and help you maintain your
muscle tone as you age. And the lean muscle will up your metabolism
and burn more calories in your everyday routine.

I'm not much of a diet specialist, but you probably know what the
culprits are in your diet. Cut down on those. Lunch is a big culprit
if you're going out to grab something every day. It is sometime to
hard to get things out for lunch on a daily basis that aren't high in
calories. They are out there. Plan ahead. Pack some leftovers from
something clean that you ate for dinner the past couple of nights. Cut
down on portions. Just gradually shift your diet to the healthier
side. Less white carbs. Up your protein intake from lean meats and
fish. Replace some things with more fresh fruit and vegetables. etc..
Diet and fitness are a lifestyle. Whatever you choose to do for each
has to be maintainable over the long haul. Gradually adjust both your
diet and fitness and after awhile it becomes your lifestyle, and won't
be difficult to maintain at all.

Hunt it down and kill it, then get yourself some real weights.

the leg press would work the glutes, but to a lesser degree than a
squat. I'm trying to picture a seated hamstring curl, but again a
hamstring curl would work the glutes to a lesser degree. A bodyweight
exercise you can do is a hindu squat. Not sure how that would work out
with your back.

We plan on putting up some video of kb exercises in our kettlebell info
section. I don't have an ETA on that at this time though. We are very
close to putting out several articles and background information on
kettlebells in the info section very soon, possibly next week. I'll
post when it is up.

No prob.

If you're looking for glute exercises, check out the exercise database in
bodybuilding.com, and the exercise section in about.com, they've both got
some great exercises. But just working the muscles in the area is not going
to get rid of the fat.

I have a sneaking hunch that once this person supplies the 'info', that
cattlebells might be on the menu.
