  • My belly roll is driving me NUTS!!!

    10/17/2014 5:41:34 AM, by EOWYN2424

    But what can I do? I don't have the stamina and fitness to run. So I walk, mostly for an hour or so 2 to 3 times a week. I also try doing mat Pilates about twice a week, for 30 to 40 minutes. But I still have a belly roll/muffin top. It drives me mad! I also watch what I eat but I have to admit... Read more

    10/16/2014 11:17:52 PM, by CHESSARIA

    I'm finding it interesting to see how many steps I take, and at what times I am most active. I think my desk job is a real hindrance to my losing weight. I have only managed to get over 2000 steps the last couple of days. Today was closer to 3000, which is half of my goal. I really need to step ... Read more

    10/16/2014 12:17:56 PM, by LAURA7051

    Mid-October, to be more precise. I'm sounding like a broken record - still struggling with the eating. What's good recently is that the bf and I have been cooking a bit - the cool weather comfort foods. Soups, chili, etc. But those are still better than what we eat when we eat out, especial...
