  1. I am a size 14 and I have a few pairs, however I am hour glass shape, and tend to wear them with boots. So needless to say I haven't been wearing them this summer, but I love to rock them babies in fall and winter.

  2. I am a year out and have take. A few road trips. I do take nuts and I will pull over at Wendy's and order chili. Their chili has been a life saver when I'm on the road and there's no room for a cooler. I'm taking a road trip in a few weeks and I will be taking kind bars. I'm so loving those things they are all natural no processed crap, they do have carbs, but they are the good healthy carbs that your body needs. You can also take Jerky.< /p>

  3. Although I really don't enjoy it very much I have always seen results with running. Interval running is preferable. I also love the stair master that machine is a beast. I remember only being able to only do 3 minutes on that machine. Now I can do about 20 minutes, I'm sure I could go longer if I wanted to but I've been so busy with school and work that I have t been able to focus on my fitness regimen so much.

    Now his last few months I've taken up yoga and I must admit I love it. I think it has over had a positive effect on my body and mind.

  4. Don't freak out, this I only temporary. Before you know it your stomach will be able to tolerate all and any foods. For these few fragile months when you can only eat bites if food at a time, embrace them. It is when you have the most restriction, and tend to loose the most weight. Take advantage.

  5. Hello everyone. I was curious. I am a year out and for some reason I can eat a lot of salad. However I do tend to eat my salads with spinach. I did notice one when I had a salad with romaine lettuce I got full much faster. For example I have made salads for lunch, I have been doing the salad in a mason jar thing (which works really well) I have been using the quart size jar. I also have been able to eat the whole salad. I would say about 2/3 of the jar is spinach. For the rest of the veggies I use cucumbers, about 5 mini cherry tomatoes, and some orange peppers along with about 3-4 ounces of chicken breast with vinigerette dressing.

    And for the record salad is the only thing that I can eat such a large portion of. Is anyone else able to eat so much salad?

  6. So fiddleman, how did you learn these techniques? We're you able to learn via reading a book? I'm asking because there are workshops in my area, they cost about $200 for a full day workshop. I don't mind spending the money, especially if it something that will help me with running.

    At school I'm taking a core fitness class that focuses on breathing, alignment and posture needed for proper exercise. I have to admit the stuff I have learned in this class has helped me tremendously, so I'm well aware that posture and breathing can make a huge difference.
