Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks all my Curvacious Ladies!  

 

This is the second "big" improvement I've had this year.  One thing I've recognized is the positive VS. negative self talk.  I used to criticize and put myself down all the time.  I've somehow change it and turned it completely around.  I used so much negative self talk that I actually never even gave myself a change to try.  Now, I recognize even the tinniest of improvements.  And I mean REALLY recognize.  I'm so proud of my accomplishments that even told my personal banker and customers.

 

If anyone wants to chat and would like some help, please pm me.  I feel so grateful to for being able to change.  It felt impossible but it's obviously not!

i am at my all-time heaviest (gosh, it seems like i'm always saying that!). i am going to enjoy my vacay next week (a last hurrah, if you will) and then it's really time to get serious about some weight loss. it's one thing not to look good but i don't even feel good anymore and that's a problem.

 

no issue with being curvy, having meat on my bones, etc., just married a younger man and would like to grow old with him. cheesy.gif

Hi Ladies,

I am so glad to see you still have this thread going.  I haven't been on this site in about a year "me bad".  Hope everyone is doing well

hello to my curvacious girls!

 

the hubs and i joined weight watchers online last tuesday! i am finally finding the motivation to DO SOMETHING! disney was a rude awakening for me in that it was a whole lot more fun 5 years and 50 lbs ago. this time, it was just plain exhausting. so i'm doing it to honor my dad who passed earlier this year from brain cancer (he lost 85 lbs on ww himself, and kept it off for over 10 years, so if he can do it, so can i!), i'm doing it because my 40th bday is just shy of 15 months away (can't do anything about getting older but i don't have to be 40 *and* obese, right?), and most of all, i'm doing it for ME! it's hard to wear hot sexy heels when your ankles have to support so much weight. it's no fun to go to amusement parks and not fit on half the rides anymore, it's embarrassing to barely fit in an airplane seat, it's not healthy to look in the mirror and hate what you see (or worse, see pics and not even recognize yourself!), etc., etc. ... so i've finally made up my mind. now's the time! i hope you guys will help cheer me on and keep me on track!

 

funny thing from my recent disney trip: we've discussed "chub rub" in here a million times haha so i know you girls know what i'm talking about ... i got it pretty bad on day 1 of our vacay (bad news when you're going to be walking your ass off every day for the next 4 days), so i ended up wearing my husband's under armour boxer briefs the whole trip, lol! he didn't have enough packed for both of us, so i had to wash them in the sink every night (hey it was either that or he'd have to wear MY underwear, haha!) ...

 

happiest place on earth + wearing men's underwear = sooooooo sexxxxaaaayyyyyyyyy!

I just spent about a week reading this thread from the beginning.  All 99 pages!!  And wow, you gals are great.  I am a curvy, chunky chic too.  My wedding is Dec 3, 2011 and I got engaged in April this year.  I have been saying since April that I will get serious and lose weight fast and well, you know how that goes, right?!  I've lost like 4 pounds since then.  I don't want to go try on dresses, thinking that I will feel miserable about myself.  I am currently wearing street clothes about size 18W-20W.    

 

The beginning of this year, I was at the heaviest weight I've ever weighed on the scale, which I realized when I couldn't even zipper up my fat jeans.  Since Jan, I am down 28 pounds, but I haven't lost much lately.  Reading this thread has put some perspective on loving myself as is.  And I do for the most part.  I just hate seeing myself in photos. 

 

I relate to all that you guys talk about.  back-crack, chub rub, you name it, i've suffered it too!  So glad to have found my chubby sisters!  Hope some of you are still around here!
