Okay well here is my "Fat-Cow Story" story...I was pretty much chubby all my life, after high school I postponed college for a year and dedicated my time to working out and eating healthier...I lost weight and I felt great and I wore my 1st two-piece bathing suit. I kept it off from 1997 til I was preggers in 2001, my 1st prenatal appt I weighed 150 (I gained 20lbs in the 2 years I was with FI)...I gained 55lbs during pregnancy and since then I have struggled with my weight (for the past 5 years). Some days I cry and some days I'm okay...but this weight is a major crutch for me. It effects me on MANY levels....and deep-down I really want to lose the weight and be fit but I don't know how to stick with anything. Ive tried so many diets and I'm tired of it...I just want to make a lifestyle change and thats it. I dont want to sound vain but I dont want to look fat on my wedding day; I dont want to walk around with a sarong on my honeymoon and be worrying about laying the right way on the beach so that my fat distributes evenly and I wont look "that fat". agghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh rant.gif

Once you cut sweets and naughties out of your diet you won't even crave them anymore, expecially fast food, you will actually feel sick after eating it if you're used to healthy stuff. DRINK water when you feel hungry, alot of time, it's actually thirst and build up your metabalism by eating about every 3 hours, but LIMITED to a handful of nuts, luna bar, or fruit. American food portians do not help in this matter, seriously, if you go out, ask for a box as you get your food, divide everything in half, eat your portion and you will actually be full of half instead of walking away stuffed! Then you have another meal for tomorrow's lunch :) This has helped a ton and I finally put down the big bucks and got a personal trainer! I know this is easier said than done, but you ALL are STRONG women, MIND over matter, FIGHT and kick some booty and those pounds!!!

I agree with everything but this. Sweets is usually what throws me over the edge. I make it about 1-2 weeks before I go crazy

i dissagree about the sweets thing... personally as long as its natrual sweetners like cane sugar and not high fructose corn syrup your body an break it down. and as long as you arent over doing it . the great thing about "the abs diet for women" is that it really breaks down how your body uses and burns calories in a way that everyone can understand. your body doesnt see HFCS and trans fats as anything more then a chemical so it stores it as fat right away which will make it much tougher to burn that off.

You got it right.....all natural things and stay away from the over processed stuff. Once you "cut" anything right from you diet your body will crave it. Anything in moderation if fine and you should never ignore cravings, if you're craving sweets try limiting yourself to a hershey kiss.

Now I know that's easier said than done and it usually lasts a while for me and then I give in to the binge....that's my problem the bingeing!

But in all honesty it's really hard to give advice unless you've been there or are there. Like I said in an earlier post if it was as easy as going on a diet then we'd all be a size 2. We know what needs to be done it's over coming the emotional and psychological part of it that's the hard part. Because over eating or emotional eating isn't cured by....."just stop eating so much" or "cut this out of your diet". You have to heal why you do it and then you can move from there.

And I speak from experience I've been there and am currently there, I've gone to Eating Disorder Therapy and have had personal trainers. I enjoy excerise and love to work out but it's all defeated when at 12am I'm worried about something I hear the cheese and crackers in the kitchen calling my name... Sometimes I fight but other times it gets me! I'm sure that's what most of us here are going through.

Stay strong...

hehe I always say I'd be 15lbs lighter if it weren't for my boobs! I'm top heavy also.. WW is definitely the way to go. Everyone I know that's on it always loses (if sticking to the plan). I think I'm going to join very soon. I have a 20lb goal to meet by next February. My weight fluctuates so easy between 5-10lbs.. one day I could be 135lbs..the next day 130..the next 137lbs.. I hate it.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
