hey just thought I would join this community. I've decided I really need to start losing weight.
Height: 5'5/5'6
Weight: 142

Ok, I wanted to know if anyone has any workout routines that have helped to lose weight. I want to do it the healthy way, eating better, exercise more, etc. Normally, I run about a mile a day, and track starts soon, so cardio is not a problem. I also need some exercise ideas for lower-abs. Thanks a bunch!

What Not to Wear [Jan. 22nd, 2005|01:04 pm]
Fat Acceptance

[mood |coldcold]

Last night I was watching What Not to Wear, and as always, I was inspired to dress more- I hesitate to say feminine, but something along those lines.

What I want to know is, a good place to get a sexy pair of jeans. Semi-dark wash, fitted, a little bootcut or flare (not huge), that really fit. Ones that I won't be pulling up every few minutes.

I usually am a very loyal Old Navy brand jean girl, but I bought a size 18 and the only time they fit me is right after they've been washed. Half an hour into their wear, they become baggy. (I think it's the stretchy material.) Normally, I like this, especially since I don't usually give a damn about what I look like--but that's not what I'm looking for this time.

But since I'm plus size, I feel so limited in where I can shop. I know that Torrid has pants, but I've been in there, and I never really like anything from there. I don't mind paying a little more than usual, if they're going to hold up. (My Old Navy jeans I was referring too had holes in the pockets only a month after I purchased them).

Any suggestions?

Hi there!  My name is Erin, and I just joined because I've started to suddenly feel depressed.  Not about my size, but about things I've been noticing.  It seems that most everyone thinks the skinnier the better, and most people are so judgemental about fat people-- especially fat girls.  Why is that? 
I've been noticing a lot of anorexic communities and blogs lately, and I feel so awful.  These people are so obsessed about not getting fat, that they will pop any pill availiable.  And these people are usually teenage girls.  It's awful.
Anyways.. thanks for letting me vent, and I'm really interested in any thoughts you all have.

Ladies in here that wear men's jeans, what brand(s) do you find fit you the best?

I'm normally a size 16 or so. I've tried on men's jeans at a couple of places, but usually by the time the waist fits, they're a zillion miles too long.

i hvae posted in here in forever. i felt the need to do it now cause well i have been severly neglecting my lj updates::blushes:: but yea. ok so where to begin. i now have a bf. his name is sean. he is everything i wanted and more. i cant believe im saying that when just a while ago i was thinking of maybe taking a break. but this is where im at with him. anywho. i am now down to a size 11. im very proud of that. i still seem so freakin fat but whatever. if you ask me working at hallmark really burns fat offaya. werd. so yea. im very happy to be at a size 11 and only have 1 more to drop until im at my desirabel weight. i wanna be a size 7/8. its a lot of work but i think i can do it. if i never make it then i can really begin to accept my body the way it is. i guess for me the biggest issue for me is that when i was 11 i was barely 100 lbs now at 15 im about 160. puberty really hurt me. oh well. im accepting it more and more everyday. its also easier now to that stores carry bigger sizes.

so yea. this sums it up for me for sure.

if you wanna talk go into my journal and get my sn! i would give it here but i dont know what it is::blushes::

ok yea im out!

ps im me and ask me for pics if you want!

If your partner is smaller than you in size and they ask you to sit on their lap, do you? If you do, do you put -all- of your weight on them? If you don't, do they tell you that you can do it because you're "not that heavy"?

My girlfriend is like 140 pounds dripping wet and she sometimes pats her lap for me to sit on it. I weigh 201 (I got weighed the other day...death.) and I feel like I could snap her legs off or something. I never want to put my full weight on her, for fear she might be like "get up, you're killing my legs."

Probably stupid, but it always makes me a wee bit uncomfortable, so I try to avoid sitting in her lap altogether.

Any thoughts?
