Ww, SK! I will look into that! I work out like a mad woman and get muscular, but the fat-burning is hard for me. Gr.
I have been big all my life . Even in the Marines, were we Exercised INTENSELY, everyday, I was still considered overweight.
Some of us are just big. Watch your portions and stay active. That's the most common Sense way I have found.
And stop judging yourself by standards that are unrealistic. Remember, Marilyn Monroe was a size 16. Even the paramedics that came to her said about how heavy her ass was . Reuben saw the beauty in a well sized woman.
Diets are great for people that are losing weight for health issues. Personally I feel that society's view on the "Perfect" person makes people think that theyneed to go on a diet or else be scorned forever. I think that people are beautiful just as they are big, small, medium or anything in between. I don't base my judgement of a person on how they look, because our bodies are just a shell that protects whats inside which is the soul and the soul is what makes a person.
Much like that old saying " You can't judge a book by its cover "
But......... I do battle with diets everyday. The one that seemed to have helped me in the past was Weight Watchers. I guess it just the fact that it let me eat what I wanted but less portions. I don't diet to look good because I love me for me, I diet to be healthier.
Maybe I should also quit smoking, but one thing at a time.
