I think you'll like it, it really did help me. This and the pads from MDSkincare, instead of using an entire line of creams and lotions, you only put this pads once a day and you're ready to go.

of course don't forget tons and tons of water!

WOW!! If I had a couple of beer in me & someone asked if I was pregnant... I think I would have thrown a few punches! lol Kudos for your patience!

My first thoughts was,"Obviously I'm not pregnant if I'm pounding them back!" LMAO I just get it from everyone.. I'm 5'4", 135 lbs and I don't gain weight anywhere else but my belly. There's like nothing I can do bc even when I'm 115 lbs I still have my belly.

Amyh, I agree with you so much, because I think I have gotten to that mindset. I must be somewhat okay with the way I look because I haven't changed it...alot of it is the laziness because if it was REALLY REALLY something I want to change, it would have been gone by now. It's just hard because I am happy with myself but I wish I could train my mind to do the things I know my body needs...like work out...A Workout buddy would be helpful, but I have the craziest work schedule imaginable...no one would be able to keep up with me with how I work.

I definitly hate my thighs. Like TammyB no matter how much I work out that is just the spot that wont lose the fat!

I'm running 3 miles 3-4 times a week and doing a lot of ballet type excercises and still they are flabby.

 

Yup my skin is also a problem too. I do use proactive which has helped so much. But when you are 28 years old and still get backnee it is embarrising!

Like just about everyone else here, I have acne on my face, chest and back. Ugh! I've seen teenagers with better skin than me.

 

I've had 2 facials in 6 weeks and I haven't seen a difference, and I had a "back facial" last week and no change.

 

And I hate my belly, but I'm too lazy to do anything about it, so I guess I shouldn't really complain.

 

**update** Just saw this link on the Internet about clearing your skin using only over-the-counter products

After my dress fitting the other day, I have to do something with my arms. It looks like I'm going to be lifting weights like crazy!

Add me to that lovely party.grouphug.gif Add to that, having pores the size of your average moon crater...

Other than that, the thing that I can honestly say I "hate", is the the lovely roll I have under my belly button. I can front and convince myself and a few others that my stomach is relatively flat..until I unbutton my pants. Yes, thats right..its sitting UNDER my waistband. hahaha...People are telling me its because of carrying four kids at once and the skin being stretched out, but that ain't just skin in there. Please.blush2.gif

Thankfully, like Butlergirl and AmyH, I've learned to love myself and just optimize the good stuff instead of stressing over the bad. There are body shapers to make it look like that roll surgically removed for my wedding day, so I'm happy.

    • 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
