I'd recommend truing something with a corset back because it gives you a little flexibility with your weight . Can't wait to see what you did Brandy

                Thats so funny, I was thinking the same exact thing when I was looking at your pic!

                The weight tends to all be in my stomach, butt and thighs lol, and that pic is only of my face of course, but I have been used to being small my entire life, it wasnt until after highschool I gained all this weight, and on me its alot, I just dont feel healthy at all, I was really active and had so much energy and this weight has really brought me down in that aspect.

                    Started gaining after I got out of high school (been out of highschool for 7 years), I also partially blame it on the birth control shot, I did sports in high school so after I got out I wasn't quite as active and if your not active on that shot you are going to gain there is no doubt about it my Dr. said you gain anywhere from 5-30 lbs. if your not active and eat right on this shot, and of course I said oh no I wont gain and plus I'm active well low and behold I gained the 30 pounds, lost the weight on the LA weightloss program about 3 years ago and gained it all back plus some! So this time I told myself I wasn't going to necessarily "diet" but just change they way I eat and exercise in general. I dint drink anymore soda, I havent had a soda in 6 months and I still crave them (thats terrible) no more fast food or fried foods of any kind, and Ive really been trying to cut back on the sugar Ive done okay for the most part but I do still have an occasional starbucks (huge weakness for me), I really do need to get on the ball with exercising more though I think I would be loosing more if I stepped that up a bit.  What have you been doing to lose the weight?  Your doing much better than me Ive only lost like 15 pounds in a 4 month period should have lost way more than that but like I said Im trying to make it a lifestyle change not a "diet".
