Let's talk about our problem areas!

Recommended Posts

Speaking of facial issues and skin sensitivity. I found out that I was allergic to benzoyl peroxide. At first the reaction was small but ended up almost like a welt. Anyway, I through out the over the counter stuff and started using Murad which has been fabulous for me.

 

I found that working out with low weights 5-10lbs with high reps burns the most fat and toned my arms. Mind you, I have not kept to the program. But I have started to walk to work or home at least four times a week. But I like the idea of the blog encouraging others to hang in there. I need the motivation.

 

Thanks all.smile123.gif

Proativ burned the living sh*t out of my face! It looked like I has nasty windburn all over the place... wasn't pretty! At least it cleared up on it's own eventually....

 

I get psoraisis on my scalp pretty bad sometimes. It doesn't bother me much but I'm tough. My sister gets it & she gets very embarassed. It looks like you have giant chunks of dandruff & if it gets irritated it turns red & can scab. Sucks, but getting my hair coloured & the sunshine (or tanning) really help to control it!

 

IMO you can do as much weights as you want, but it's going to be cardio that's going to burn the fat for you. Even in those hard to get places (arms, etc) I do heavier weights at the gym, but nothing will get my "flab" toned well without the cardio. I find it exhausting to do an hour of weights and then try to do cardio while at the gym, so I try to do them seperate.

oh and also the skin on the back of my upper arms gets these little bumps. i hate it. it doesnt happen in the winter when they're covered up, but in the summer when i start to wear sleeveless stuff. of course.
Dougsgirl I am in the exact same boat as you. I have stomach muscles and you can even see where I use to have a little definition, but it is this huge layer of fat on top of it. I know that cardio does the job, but I can seem to find enough energy, time, and "want to" to go and take my smile117.gif to the gym. This is ridiculous because I only have a little more than a month til the wedding and only 4 days til my dress fitting...What can I do for a quick fix that will just get me right for the wedding? Any suggestionshuh.gif

I will keep everyother thickness that I have, because I do believe in a little meat..but this belly is ridiculous... I use to play college basketball and had nice muscle definition...I am only 24...WHAT HAPPENEDhuh.gifgirl_werewolf.gif

your only option at this point with the fitting being 4 days away is to buy a good pair of spanks that have tummy control, or a corset bra.

if you know you are carrying a lot of water weight, then you can take an OTC diuretic (or even just drink a lot of tea or coffee really, that will get you peeing). but to be honest that wont help you *that* much unless you get prescription diurectics from a doctor.

Are you following a nutrition plan like WW? Doing that for 3-4 weeks may help, but then think also that you do not want to lose too much weight because then your dress will be too big.

I've started circuit training, and I think it has helped. When I do weights, I go from one exericse to the next. I don't take breaks in between sets, I just go to work a different muscle. Last night I upped my weight on my lunges, and I think it's something I really needed to do. Also, another good exercise for your butt is on the stability ball. Lie on your back with your feet on the stability ball and lift up and down, and then roll the ball out and back in to work your hamstrings. I really like this one.

my other problem is that i have a fat belly. no matter how much i eat healthy and exercise, my belly seems to always be kinda poochie. i am hoping that the colonix will help a little with this.
Maura,
I think you'll like the book, it takes about 2 weeks to a month to see the difference, but you'll completely notice. After taken so many antibiotics I started doing research. I found out that basically as long as your liver is toxic you will keep breaking out, so you gotta work on clearing it up. There were a few things that I modified in the eating plan, which I'm sure you'll do as well to accommodate your liking. Good luck!

Thanks so much Sandra. I need this book. If I can change one thing about myself, it would be my skin. I hate it and literally cry about it. I avoid wearing make-up when ever possible (M-F). I break out so easily.

Glenda, I have many more problem areas, but I've reached a point where I told myself that if I am too lazy (which I am) to change it, I need to embrace it. So I love my body and all its jelly!

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
