  • You are much braver than I... not sure I could have ever asked a guy out face to face.
  • Sounds like most of us think along the same lines. I love Anna's explanations, but what is annoying is beating yourself up over which one it could be. I don't think texting him is a bad thing, if you find he isn't responding within the day, maybe send 1 or 2 more then I would take it as a hint. I am so glad I am over…
  • Please don't improve for him, do it for YOU... he doesn't deserve you at your best, if he can't take you at your worst. If it's one thing it will always be another. When you find the person for you, this will never even be questioned.
  • Hugs.. It really possibly has nothing to do with your weight on the grand scheme of things. When you just talk online and never meet them in person you build them up to be this person in your head. A lot of times people meet and you just aren't exactly what you had pictured them to be inside and out. that's why when I did…
  • First off, congrats. You have done what some many have set out to do and are an inspiration to all of us. You look fantastic!! Secondly, quoted above - I get it, 100% and I haven't even lost the half of what you have. Your heart will fill, your self esteem will come, and you will fight all those demons. I thought all my…
  • Time will pass anyways so stick to it... 0.2, 0.4, etc. add up to big numbers so don't get discouraged.
  • Sounds like you need a new support group and/or gym.. I have made plenty of progress and I never act like that. Sure I have self talk (internally) to push myself but I would never been like that on the outside. And heck, after 3 years I can barely do a normal push up - I always alter my stuff and I don't give a damn. Be…
  • In my experience the paid sites are generally better with more serious people. that said, I think it depends on the website. I had great experience with E-Harmony. met my fiance on there. Noone I talked with would flake out on a date, ask about hooking up, etc. but not all of them were for me either. That's the name of the…
  • I just want to send my love and support to your daughter and your family!!! I haven't had a child with cancer, but I lost my mom to cancer when I was a young adult.
  • I think I can relate to you on some levels. When I lost my 88ish lbs, I still saw fat Kim in the mirror, it took a long time for me to believe I really had a new body. But in time I came around and I don't really feel this way anymore. I can promise you no one noticed your tummy, but if you would feel better I honestly…
  • A lot of brands now are low calorie... I have seen it for beer and hard booze...
  • Good luck! Things have changed a lot since you once dated before, so keep an open mind. As you get going you will find yourself coming up with a set of rules - what's ok, what's not, what you want, what you don't want, etc. This will change as you go. It can be a frustrating process, especially if you use online dating, so…
  • Congrats!! It's a great feeling, take a picture of the scale :)
  • I had a csection in 2005 when I gave birth to full term twins. So unfortunately I am not a success story, I had a lot of extra skin, stretch marks, and separated ab muscles. After losing the weight I decided to have a tummy tuck. I am 4 months post op and it's the best thing I ever did for myself. That said, I was a…
  • Congrats on your success and your upcoming wedding! I am pretty close to my goal but have been struggling as of late (about 5 lbs up after a trip to Cuba but no motivation to get it off).. none the less I got engaged in Cuba and we plan to marry in January..... You will be beautiful no matter what :)
  • I don't personally do it just because I don't enjoy it, but I know that when I bring my kids I am usually starving and exhausted when I am done. I would say it is great exercise!!! Anything that burns calories is exercise enough to lose weight if you have a good diet that puts you in a deficit. You are doing better than…
  • Other than the other suggestion of the band being tight enough, is it possible you are due for a new battery?? That would be my only other thought. I dropped my sensor in the toilet around Christmas, I was off after surgery at the time so I didn't use it for a month or so. When I did, it seemed to work, then got erratic…
  • hmmmmm LOL!! While I don't mind her videos, and the calorie burn for less than 30 mins is unreal, I can't stand her voice. And I am not sure she pushes me, I generally just push myself. Could be a mix of both!!
  • I like my Lucky Brand flare style jeans - I find they have the most stretch of all of their styles. Maybe you need a good quality jean that does have stretch in the denim?
  • I think it is totally worth it if you find that good balance. You still need to enjoy your life and have fun, so if you restrict yourself from everything you love for the rest of your life you will be miserable. So with that said, I have lost the weight, I have worked on my body shape, and I splurge... it's great. I was a…
  • I can't afford any input as I just go to the gym but GOOD LUCK!!!
  • WOW!! Unless there is a rule book somewhere that says you can't do this, unless you have done this -- who is she to say what you can and can't do? I would possibly talk to her first and let her know that family comes first and you do the best you can, otherwise it may be time for a new gym. The ladies at my gym are just…
  • Exactly why I took stress leave at work... I can't do it all there and keep taking more and more.. then get s*** on for not being perfect, when the other half that I work with does sweet *** all... Then I bring it home, where it can be stressful with kids, and I just couldn't take it anymore! You dealt better than me, but…
  • I think it depends how much you weigh and wear you carry your weight. When I started I was 245lbs, I waited for a loss of 20-30 lbs and then I had dropped 2 sizes. Currently I am high 150's and I wear a 6 or 8...
  • I am a women's health nurse and we do a lot of Mirena's and Copper IUD's in my clinic. I have never heard of anyone complaining about weight gain. I look at it the same way as other issues - I have an under active thyroid. Sure it can cause weight gain, but I will never blame my weight issues on that... I blame it on the…
  • I think if you were on a site like 'meetup' for a group with similar interests then that is cool, but my fear of a dating site being this restricted is you are missing out on a lot of other potential suitors. It's safe to say you will find someone who likes baseball not on these sites, or whatever... even if you support 2…
  • You do need to get over the part of feeling like you are shoving off your kids. You are NOT shoving them off, you are also allowing yourself some time to have a life, to unwind, and relax. And that doesn't just happen when you are kid free, it happens when you need/want it too. I get all the ex drama, I do. Thankfully I…
  • If the person was right could you not get babysitters?? I've done a lot of dating and some I would work around things (ie get a sitter, ask a friend) and some I would not. I am also a single mom who rarely gets time off as their dad drives truck and doesn't even live here but I figure it out because I want to date.
  • The fact she's told you she doesn't love him and is using him would have been very important in the original post. It sounded like you were classifying her solely on what you saw and had no basis for same. Sounds like you have some relationship issues YOU need to work thru yourself.
