  • You wrote, "I don't support the plus size or fat acceptance movement, because it promotes unhealthiness." I cannot agree more. It upsets me tremendously when I see posts that support deadly behaviors of any kind. The statements that promote obesity is beautiful upset me the most. I see inflammation and other fatal issues.…
  • People love to share their opinions. They love to say how my food is or is not for them. Sometimes in a rude way. Their comment does not matter one bit to me. It is their's, and I don't have to accept it. Whether they are someone that likes my food options or hates it does not bother me either way. The majority of the…

  • EXCELLENT - SAID VERY WELL
  • That is very true. We can get so messed up with body imagine (looks, size) that it can consume us. Imagine if you really were ugly. Many people have to accept they are just simply ugly. There is no reason, no matter what we look like, that we cannot have happiness, families, great times, fabulous memories and joy. We can…
  • kelleywolfe81 - do you have a free personal trainer available? Some gyms offer a trainer 3 times free. Other gyms have them at a low fee. The pain is gain theory was debunked a long time ago, but you can expect some soreness. You may need to be doing specific flexibility exercises to help with underact or overact muscles.…
    in Ouch! Comment by RicaFit December 2014
  • I never considered this before. I finished my first degree. After that, since I keep getting injured in the gym (hernia - that required a 1 1/2 for finding a surgeon for the surgery and healing), heart issues, and pulled muscles), I decided to take a NASM course to become a fitness trainer. I know why I keep getting hurt!…
  • Not conceited at all! It is great to hear.
  • You have the perfect size. Just make sure your muscles and bones stay healthy :) I hope you realize what a joy it is to just wear anything and look fabulous... YOU can!!!
  • I like this simple tip. It works for me. I know part of my weight gain was automatic eating. Not thinking about it. I married and he ate a lot.. I ate with him. Once I started paying attention, I realized the habits I had picked up. I know sugar is terrible, but I really need energy. (My iron infusion is next month…
  • I do hope you find the benefits of cardio and weight bearing exercises WITHOUT hives soon. Your post reminded me of an exercise program that does only one set of exercise throughout the day. It was designed for other purposes, but not work for you. It is basically light weights and low level cardio throughout the day. Your…
  • You pretty much just told my mother's story without the success part. I would dream she would take such steps to bring herself into a healthy lifestyle. You are hope and inspiration to so many women in multiple ways. I love your before and after. Your smile in the second picture before is so beautiful. That beauty that…
  • I would hate to always feel hungry. I eat a few small meals through the day. I have about 6 or so very low calorie meals, and I always feel full. I am so glad everyone agrees this is pretty much what your body likes the best. WEB MD says small meals boast metabolism. Well, here is a myth buster: Myth No. 2: Eating Small,…
  • That is an excellent answer. To each his own. I personally hate belly fat on me (a female) and find it comforting on men (. How sexist is that!!!) I am glad I am loosing the belly - finally. There is a different in a tiny cute pooch on some women than belly fat though. I would have to find an example to post it. It is very…
  • If the advice works on this page = AWESOME! I listened to the popular opinion to raise my calories. I did not loose. I actually gained by raising it to 1500. I then lowered it to 1200 for a few weeks. I maintained. Now I am loosing. I am at 1000-1100 plus any extra exercise above normal [which is usually construction…
  • That really needed said. I am so surprised when people call each other stupid or curse at some one who is just asking a question! I love people, and I will not hurt someone (even if I think a comment might is a bit goofy). No one has ever said anything mean to me personally which I really appreciate. An example is: I just…
  • This is one of the best replies I saw. Drinking calories can slow down your progress. It was very hard to give up everything, so I started with the hardest. 2009 stopped all soda. Now all I drink is water and unsweet ice tea. My husband and I do this together. HIs most difficult time is with sugar drinks. If he does those,…
  • I like my entire body.. without the fat.
  • I just read your profile. I am extremely happy for you! Your surgery is only two months away! I am wishing you the best success for that. You are eighteen about about to go into the best years of your life. It is wonderful you are taking your health in your hands. I have many family members who have decided to take that…
  • I was a b cup almost my entire life. I gained weight at 37 years old and went into size D.. I am getting it off slowly and every day I am so happy the B cup is coming back very soon. I have been stuck with big boobs for the last five-six years and HATE HATE HATE it. They did not get saggy, but I just feel chocked. I…
  • I am a very strong women. I could bet the boys in every leg wrestling and arm wrestling match until they reach puberty. I can still beat them in leg wrestling. I won the arm hang in junior high school. I do construction right along my husband. I am in better shape than my husband overall. However, I am weaker than the men.…
  • For all those in doubt that kids cannot do push ups in school, go to the gym teacher and ask....These kids today are not in shape. To call that sexist is sad.I have been exercising with kids since my mother opened her first day care center and home school. If you do not believe those that are stating kids cannot do push…
  • I am having the same issue here! I was very surprised to see they can not get their bodies off the floor. We start with the simple for them and let them know the goal is to get to five and then advance to the regular push up! That is what drew me to this conversation in the first place. Some are still "trying" to get to…
  • @rml_16 -- Same here. My daughter is a personal trainer. She has everyone do "regular pushups" and those new can start with "girl pushups" even the guys. They just don't call them that because the world has gone word mad. After my hernia, I wimpered..'get now I have to do girl pushups." In 1978, we were told to do the…
  • I'm 5'4 and 42 years old. My overall goal is 128 at final resting point. My immediate goal is 154, because I cannot think that far down the road. I take a few pounds at a time.
  • You have not meet enough I would hope. I have yet to met a single BB Coach :)
  • I have not been asked to buy anything or had any one ask to be my friend since I joined back in March.
