Also, whenever I have to travel I have problems. I think it's because you are sitting for long periods of time and I don't get to drink enough water because who likes to make all those pit stops at dirty bathrooms?!?
I gained 2 pounds when I went to visit my mother but as soon as I got home and ate my foods and drank enough water and didn't in a car for hours in a day, I quickly lost the 2 pounds I lost within a day or so! emoticon
Now my clothes fit very well again!!!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

I agree with you 100% about the relaxing part Sunshine! I know that when I am stressed, I can feel my stomach feeling all icky and I start feeling sick. Just have to breathe and take it easy!

Thanks to you all for your comments.

Yes. I agree....I am always aware to dress for my body type...as it can take lbs off...LOL.

Sometimes we probably focus too much on the weight issue. If we relax a little more..then maybe our IBS would settle down!

Looking good! I think as long as we are at a healthy weight for ourselves and we look good, we shoulodn't worry about how many inches our waists are or that we no longer weigh what we did 25-30 years ago. I know I will never be 116 pounds again in a healthy way! So looking good with what we have is what it gets to be when we get to a certain age! emoticon

Funny isn't it. I was thinking the same thing. At 57 I don't think I'll ever have a 6 pak abs more like a 24 :) But when I posted my background pix from my marathon on Saturday, had a few comments on how skinny I looked, it was a good picture emoticon .

But I do think you're spot on, and dressing properly really does make a huge difference.

Cheers!

I think for me it's just that time in my life where you get the middle age spread! Not fun but as long as I watch my weight and wear the right clothes, no one even notices my larger than I would like to have waist! I received so many compliments when I did Communion at church and stood up there for all to see. People came to me afterwards and asked me if I had lost weight and that I looked good! That was a great day for me!!!

Same problem here, I can tone and lift weights and do cardio till the cows come home, eat right, do tons of abs, but 1/2 " down from a couple of weeks ago.

I don't know why this is myself, it's frustrating as heck, sometimes I wonder if it's due to having to have white pasta or bread whenever I'm in the d mode, I can't tolerate high fibre most of the time or I pay the price. At least when I do white, it's organic unbleached, and the sugar is raw organic sugar cane.

Hoping someone else might have an answer????

I have lost weight and feel good at the weight I am presently but my waist did not shrink as did other parts of me! My face and my breasts took the loss but not the waist! Maybe I need to do more twists and turns... emoticon

Hi all

I know we all get frustrated with IBS and trying to loose weight. Just wondering if anyone of you get as frustrated as me with your waist measurement??? It seems that is the first place people look at these days...and it is just so frustrating!!!

Best of luck to all of you!

Sunshine
