    Do you feel more attractive?

    Ugh...this post hit home. I cant take a compliment either....we went out last weekend my husband told me I looked pretty. My response : crickets🙄 I had this whole outfit planned and figured I was really gonna shine....got ready, thinking Dang girl! Got our picture taken....seriously look like trash. No matter how hard I try I still see fat me. Idk if it ever goes away. I work out a lot and have muscle definition but I have a few spots like a saggy belly that just gives me tunnel vision...all I can see are the jiggly parts. I compare pics and no doubt there is a change! And I love the change and I love how strong I am and the huge list of things I can enjoy now.....but idk if I will ever be able to completely get rid of the "old me"

    Nauseous after Dance Class

    Maybe you just over did it a bit? Too much too soon? Pushed yourself too hard and didnt realize it because you were having such a good time? When I first started working out I jumped right into the insanity dvds....lucky I was at home because at the end of my first disk, I threw up😏

    Help needed, what exercise can i do to drop the fat?

    Agreed @BlueCrush!!! Diet is huge @Wonderwifey- what do you enjoy? Nothing worse than finding a exercise plan and hating it or being bored....that will lead to giving up. I tried insanity when I first started working out..its tough but it gave results....transitioned to weights, and biking (spinning)/running. (Love weights btw) but I'm a country girl...now those bails of hay are easy to throw!😉 But those are things I enjoy because it incorporates what I like to do in my free time..(hiking, down hill mtn biking, ect) Once you start seeing the results of building muscle, you may not lose much weight, but I can promise you that you will see a body transformation that you will love... Ps-take progress pics for yourself...because even if the scale doesnt move your body WILL change. Good luck💪

    Third week in

    Agreed! Everything Julie says is correct! Hopefully things are getting better! Sometimes the first weeks can be difficult! sometimes it takes a while to figure it out, because everyone is different! I still have bad and good days! But you learn what to do and what not to do! And btw....I can not drink fast....one of the things I miss is a huge gulp of ice cold h20!

    Lapband advice needed - feeling weird

    Personally, if you are ready to re commit to the band and the lifestyle (it's not easy) I would give the 5 day pouch test a try. I usually do it when I get off track and i think it helps....try to be honest with your self...exercise, eat slowly, make good food choices and track everything. It's a lot of work, and it sounds like at one point it was working. Good luck!

    Fill yesterday. Too tight??

    My doc always had me sit in the office and take some sips before leaving the office to make sure I was not too tight....I did get super tight at one point and had to have a bit removed....I gave it a week before I went in. Just because for me my band can get crazy weather, travel, stress, PMS all play a role for me... I would try some crushed ice, and broths, back to the basics. Good luck and please keep us posted!

    What were your starting workouts?

    The first thing i started with was the insanity dvd's.....they kicked my butt....no joke. Literally puke feeling....but the feeling of finishing the dvd was amazing!
