Hi--I just have to vent--I have been reading and posting a little for the last few weeks!! I am going to the WI Dells this weekend and I just put on my swimsuit and i am so depressed--- I have NO waist!!! I just look awful!! I lost some weight last summer and it had all creeped back on plus a few pounds!!! I know what to do---I JUST DON'T DO IT!!! I turned 30 this month and i swore i would be down to a decent weight by 30--- but i am back up to 165--- which is alot for me--i am 5'4"--- BUT i think this really did it for me--- i really SEEN what i look like---and those nasty fat rolls!!!!! lol! I'm looking for some others in the same boat I really need to find a support group ----- hope to hear from someone soon!!!!
Hi--- yeah IT DOES!!!! i am trying these new diet pills-- Genical--they don't have ephedra-- and i REALLY haven't been eating that good since my mini vacation!!! hoping to hear what is working for others and how to stay MOTIVATED!!!!!!! That is my big problem!!!
i have been thinking about WW--but i just don't think it will work for me--i'm not good at the counting calories--how will i be able to count points! lol---- good luck with it--- have you tries any supplements?
thanks. i understand, i go mostly for the support, i dont really count that closely tho i do seem to eat 25-30 points mostly from veggies and protein. i am on a ton of nutritional supps- some of which are for weight(q10, carnitine, cayenne, chitosan)& some for health that i hope to combine shortly. lets keep each other posted k? <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
At least your brave enough to even try on a swimsuit! I'm 5'4 and 160 and just turned 40. I won't go out in public in a swimsuit. I've been this way for 4 years now. It's so hard when all my life I was never fat and now I am. I compare it to when someone is fat their whole life and then gets skinny-it changes your whole attitude and personality. I was very outgoing and absolutely loved clothes-not anymore. But, the good news is, I am changing my attitude that I WILL LOSE THIS WEIGHT! I just had to vent also!
Alot of people on here are reading your post and saying to themselves--Oh this is definitely ME. Well I am off to the beach next week and I have the no curvy middle thing going so I went to a store and bought a bright colored pair of silky shorts to match my bathing suit. I also dot a cute pair of glasses. Now in the mirror I see a fashionable lady!
Well thats what I did--- bought a pair of shorts to wear over them and just SAID OH WELL!!!! I wasn't happy about it but I'm not gonna wake up skinny!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
How is everyone doing?-- I am making an effort to start drinking water--if you put lemon in it it isn't too bad!! and i am cutting down on sweets--- one step at a time!!! GOOD LUCK to everyone and keep posting!
