    I will take a few pounds from someone? Anyone? I haven't worked out in 2 months, no kickboxing but I have been plowing pastures, picking rocks (some boulders!), major yardwork, riding 2 horses daily, lessons and heavy show schedule, lots of hauling. My muscles stayed ripped, but none of my clothes fit, my expensive show breeches hang off me, had to buy a new pair, Awwww shucks huh?
    Diet has been the same with exception of daily rhubarb pie
    because I can't see all my rhubarb going to waste. Now
    That the scorching hot weather is here maybe a few cold beers will help me out, hoping....because my bras are getting too big Lol.

    I lost about 30lbs, and for someone who is only 5 feet tall that's a pretty significant number. I had originally lost closer to 40 but I hadn't done so in a healthy way so I've gained some back. I've found it's so so much harder to lose the last 'little bit' and I'm stuck, I don't know what to do. But Wares I feel ya, I have to buy a bunch of new bathing suits because nothing fits, my poor boobs shrank to next to nothing! I just wish I could take the fat I'm looking to lose and send it elsewhere...

    That's terrific :)...one thing the docs always told me is that the last ten pounds is the hardest. The military nutritionist told us it is because you are reaching your optimum weight and your body is actually "thinking" you are going to continue to lose weight so it goes into sort of a modified starvation mode, slowing your metabolism; they also refer to it as a plateau which anyone trying to losing weight has encountered. That time when, after dropping weight steadily doing what people do they suddenly come to a halt..this is the same thing. Usually a minor change in food, a shifting of fat/proteins; eating more proteins and reducing fat a little further for a few days, can reignite the idea that no, "I" (the body) am not going to starve and it kicks back in to gear. Unfortunately, the formula to get things going again has yet to be discovered..it is different from person to person. What is important to remember as well is that the body needs a certain amount of fat intake in order to absorb the vitamins so going 100% fat free isn't always the best.

    Foal
    I don't know if its to late for me to join.. but heres a little bit about me.

    My name is Felicia, Im live in a small town called Carrizozo New Mexico. Im 22 years old, I'm 5 ft and 213 lbs. I have one horse named pancho and he's still young. I would like to loose some weight to weigh about 140 before I start to really ride him since he is a little bit smaller than the other horses I usto own. I have a hard time keeping on a diet because as most hispanic familys they just loves to feed you all that fatty foods lol. I've lost the total of 2 lbs in a week so far but today I kinda blew it lol darn burritos and chili fries!! Lol

    While watching good ol Dr. Phil, his guest was a "diet expert" who's advice was to not see fat as bad as fat does help with brain function. She also recommended chosing a part of your body that you like. I think people need to stop being so critical of their body because the stress raises the cortisol levels which increases fat stores.

    I could be happy if I lost fat and toned up. Even if I lost only 10 lbs, and was still toned and semi-muscular. I don't want to be skinny I just want to be fit and confident for once. I ordered P90X... That's going to woop my butt, haha. I don't want to start school in the same over weight body though.
