I miss the smilies :smile:

Way to go Whosya!!! (yep - I went back and watched Madagascar - too funny on the whosya foosa thing!!)

Lulu - I hope you get you question answered because I'm in the same boat!! or bra lol. I wear the regular plus a tight exercise one to hold everything in. Two shirts plus my zip up coat to help conceal all that's going on when I jog. I'm a 36-38DD right now.

So I did stop by the Sports Academy after the gym this morning, and bought 3 different ones to give a try. The one that looks/feels to be the most supportive is the danskin womans triathalon tri-bra. Little pricey (on sale $34). I'll let ya know Wombat how it works...LOL,

I wear the "Enel" sport bra. Found it after a lot of research. It is amazing....no moving at all when running.

Here's the raving about it that convinced me to spend the $54:

Featured on Oprah and on the TODAY Show.

The folks at SELF magazine say, "Working out can really be painful if you’re not wearing the right bra. For women with a D cup, their breasts can bounce more than 4-1/2 inches while they’re jogging. From all that bouncing, your breast skin stretches, which leads to sagging over the long term. Hands down, this bra tested the best for motion control for larger sizes. Women with a larger-sized chest need substantial fabrics, straps that are at least 1 inch wide, a higher neckline, wider rib bands and a really sturdy cup. This bra really holds you in — you won’t move at all!"

Prevention Magazine October 2003 says "worth every penny"

On Oprah's personal "O List" of a few things she thinks are just great. As Oprah says, "Once you get yourself hooked into this thing, believe me they're not going anywhere."

Real Simple Magazine April 2003 says "Straps won't dig into shoulders and help in controlling bounce... One DD size tester said, "This is the only bra I can do jumping jacks in."

Well, I just started the 10K Learn to Run program through SportMed.

Yesterday was my first training session. 34 minutes of walk/run.

I feel good so far.

In 13 weeks, I will be running (ie:jogging slowly) the Vancouver Sun Run, with my 13 year old daughter who is training with me.:wink2:

I started this morning! YAY!!! I did very well, actually. I was so proud of myself! :rolleyes2: I couldn't believe it. I made up my mind this weekend that I was gonna do it. I was so excited last night about this morning. I can't wait until Thursday to do it again. I can tell I did more than just walk. My knee is a little sore, but nothing major at all.

I am so psyched!!!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
