I want all the excess fat to shift from all over to muscle! LOL or leave all together!!

I don't mind small boobs.

I have changed my eating habits. Low carb, really limiting sugars, but eating high protein/good fats (meaning natural not processed) and almost no processed foods at all.

It'd be pretty neat if we could just scoop off excess fat (without pain) and slap it onto the skinny people that can burn it off so easily...

My stomach never gets flat (and it never was even before I had kids). I wouldn't mind shifting some of that pooch to my butt. My butt IS flat. I think I may have been put together backwards...

lol.
In the end I feel just fine with how I look. Sure I'd like a flatter stomach and all that kind of stuff, but I don't think anyone is ever truely satisfied with how they look, I can't remember EVER being completely happy with how I looked even though looking back, I didn't have a thing to complain about as a teenager.

I've organized some stuff for the accountant today, and going to do a haircut in a bit and then off to parent teacher interviews.

Don't really care how I look, just want my clothes to fit better. Or fall off.

If I looked the way I looked when I thought I looked fat before I'd be thrilled! I really don't like how big my stomach, butt and thighs look. If those areas could kinda match up with the other areas I'd feel a little better.
I've taken a little break from my weight loss journey. I really need to get back on it. I weighed in at 145lb this morning. I'd love to see 139 by June but fat doesn't like to leave my body very fast. It's a slow slow process for me and really hard to keep my motivation up.

I already have big boobs, a big butt and big thighs. So instead I could be a fat donor....lol

The only part of me I really hate is my tummy area. After the kids it is shot. I have always been a big girl, so for me it's normal, but I was a big girl with a flat tummy.

I have never had a flat tummy, even when I was skinny (and apparently didn't know it!) the best I've ever had in the ab department (past puberty) was just a little bulge in the lower tummy.

I'm getting more comfortable with how I look, but finding that I really want to increase my endurance as my kids are doing more and more.

And, I pretty much always prefer how I look when I'm pregnant, it's the one time I'm allowed to not "feel fat." So I'm in a good spot right now... check back in November. lol

My baby is WILD today! She's just tearing around the house and up and down the stairs and ransacking drawers and banging on anything she can bang on and moving anything light enough for her move and cooing and squealing all the while. She is going to sleep GREAT tonight!

I don't mind my thick thighs or my big booty, I have a decent chest, just kinda wish they sat up where they used too. I have a belly flap, I hate it, and my upper arms are too flabby.

Once upon a time I was over 300 lbs. I am just over 200 now. My goal is 165. I honestly think I'd look funny, or sick, if I weighed less than that.

I like being pg too, I think I am pretty darn hot pregnant, and hey I was getting hit on the other day, so I must not be too bad.

I think we are really hard on ourselves as women. I mean my husband thinks I look good, he's attracted to me.

^^ They don't. I've heard some stories of dh's flat out telling their wives they've let themselves go and they aren't attracted to them anymore.

I'd be happy to see 145 on the scale!! Ultimately, though, I'd like to be 135. Small steps for now.

ooooh not the weight topic .... I just got weighed yesterday and I cant believe I have gained more than 30 pounds!!!!! Im not to worried cus I loose in the last months of pregnancy so whatever. but still....

I for sure have alot of weight to loose after I have this baby and cant wait to get started.
I agree though if a wifey looked really bad, the hubs would say something. My Dh is overweight a little and I am still attracted to him and the same goes for him.

I agree with sometimes we tend to be to harsh on ourselves. its hard not to though sometimes. I would like to get back down to 115-120. Im in no super rush.

My husband has no problem telling me when it's time to 'wash that grey right outta my hair', so I imagine he'd have no problem telling me I was getting fat lol

I woke up at 5 am and was wide awake. Its gonna be a long day cause I am already tired. Kailyn woke up at 6 and wanted cartoons, but I really don't like cartoons. Then I remembered I ordered Rise of the Guardians yesterday for the other kids and we compromised on that. Can I say that it was a really good movie, I even teared up once or twice, but then again I can be a sap sometimes. It's get's a good rating from me!

I'm bummed, all day yesterday I thought it was Friday and late last night I realized it wasn't. lol Oh and it's ugly outside, not really cold, just cloudy and ugly. It's like the sun only comes out long enough to tease us

I'm a Cali girl and I miss the sun!

I think I weighed 120 when I was 11 I'm careful about what I say about weight, my #2 struggles with how she looks, she's always had a really big build. She's learning to embrace it though, now that she's older AND started playing rugby. I weigh the same as before kids (160) I took a few ideas from my no sugar no carb friend and it helped me get rid of those last few pounds (15 years later lol)

I'm not always good at making the kids do stuff in the kitchen, but last night I had 2 haircuts to do at 5 so I told the older 2 they were in charge of supper. I told them what to make and they did it. Then I had to go play volleyball (with #2) so I told #1,3 and 4 to clean up the kitchen. It was SO nice to come home to a clean kitchen.

Only 1 kid at school today, and it's my domestication day....I'll get started as soon as I'm done all my coffee.

UM, I know the feeling all to well. Hope it get's better for you.

Wishing I hate when that happens!

Nothing new here, I guess that's a good thing.
