Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

Ladies....I'm soo glad I came across this thread.  It's nice to know i'm not the only one out there that's bigger, which I know i'm not, but sometimes it feels like it!! cheesy.gif Glad to have someone to talk to that actually understands!

Lisa....totally understand what you mean about exercise....at times I can be soo motivated and other times I'm not motivated at all....just feel exausted from the bustle of everyday living.  btw, congrats on losing the weight and good luck with the Biggest Loser Comp!!

Ooooh, sexy!  There is actually a product that you can get that works very well..it is called Body Glide and is often found in running stores.  Helps stop chafing with runners, and certainly helps with the thigh issue.

LOL I just clicked that link too.   Way too sexy for me!   I'll vote for Body Glide also -- Running Room carries it.

I got a major heat rash under my arms in the Dominican after 3 days (mind you I NEVER had any relief from the heat, not even at night).  I bought Body Glide and it worked like a charm.  I applied it every morning, and then again just before supper (just in case).
 

 

UPDATE:

thanks to my brother, he has gotten me to a point where I can participate in a full 1 hour cardio kickboxing class!  His Martial Arts Club puts on a "bag" course.  We punch, kick, squat, and do situps for 1 hour straight.  I have pushed myself beyond my limits (something I learned because of my brother), and I even encourage my skinny friend to keep going.  I sweat like a Mother F***** but thankfully the class only has 3 others so I don't feel like a complete idiot.  

 

My eating habits are still terrible, but at least I've improved one aspect of my life.  I had a sedentary lifestyle.  I have a sit down job, then came home and either watched TV or went on the computer.  I seriously NEVER moved.  Now I couldn't be happier!

 

You have to start somewhere, no matter HOW SMALL it is!!  For me it was 20 minutes of working with my brother once a week!  How embarrassing!  But now look at me go!  Now I'm up to 2 hours a week of hard core workouts!  

 

Thanks for listening guys!  I have only told 3 other friends/family in my life.  People have stopped believing in me so I tend to keep more quiet around most people.

I know what you mean about how people stop believing in you.  I have started so many times to get on the right track and I never stick to it, so I guess I can't blame them for being sceptical when I talk about trying again.  I think I really need a kick in the butt to get going, just have to figure out what "kick" works for me!  :)  It's awesome how your brother helps you, clearly he believes in you.  Keep it up!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
