Hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

That's great that you "carry" your weight well. I'm at goal now, but when I first started this weight-loss journey back in 1996-1997, I weighed 161 pounds and change. And at 5' 2.25" I didn't carry it well at all. I had a few rolls, a fat booty and heavy thighs. And I had a really puffy look to my face (bloated). I was so self-conscious and depressed. My clothes were uncomfortable and I never felt great. What a change 15 years of losing (gradually) makes! I think you ladies are right... People just carry their weight differently and some people can get away with it more. I've seen plus size girls who are gorgeous; they look healthy, confident and happy. Others not so much. So consider yourself lucky! :) Bet you look fine now; so just think of how you'll look (and, more importantly, feel) as you lose! Do keep us posted! xo

Welcome to the team and to the journey. Most people don't see themselves as overweight, let alone obese. Each of us carries our weight different. It is more noticeable on the mid-section and less noticeable in breasts and thighs. Best wishes for a successful journey!

Hey Guys! I'm Lola! I'm 4"11.5 (yes the .5 has to be there) and I weigh 172lbs.
I gained weight over the last 6 years and have been gaining and losing since. My heaviest was 195lbs, and then I went down to 150lbs, now I'm back at 172lbs. I do find it strange though that everyone who sees me tells me I don't look so heavy. Even my doctor assumed that I was about 145lbs .... I look in the mirror sometimes and I don't see an "obese" girl. I see a curvy girl yes, with some fat... but not obese. Is this strange?
