David is about 4 months old in this photo which would put me at about 245...maybe even closer to 250

...a word that has been used to describe me for as long as I can remember. I used to say that it's just another word for 'fat'...but now that I can definitely be described as 'fat', I know the difference and look forward to the days that I'm just 'voluptuous' again. I want my son to be proud that he has such a hot mom and I want to be able to keep up with him as he gets older and more active. I am!

For the past two years I've been belly of June of this year I started to apprentice to be a teacher. I dance 6 days a week, I'm in a professional dance troupe and I'm in the best shape I've ever been...but now my goal is to look hot in my dance costuming so that my weight doesn't distract from my dance. My body has changed somewhat in musculature but there's still all this extra extra jiggle...when I'm done shimmying, my body keeps going! This must change since I hope to go competitive in the not distant future. Changes must begin immediately! Keeping my eye on the goal and moving forward!!

    Ruthie -- this is going to sound weird, but I think I met you in Chicago at the Aida Nour workshop. Were you in the Zar piece?

    Good luck Ruthie babe. One size does NOT fit all when it comes to weight loss. I trust this diet over weight loss surgery.

    Yes, Coach Nicole wrote a scathing article against it, and I sent you the article.
    The woman who is the Nutritionist for Sparks has "tore a new A$$" for people who have posted about the diet on regular message boards, so that is why I NEVER post about it outside of the SparkTeam. They preach "one to two pounds per week" and exercise, exercise, exercise. Right...... emoticon

    Welcome to the HCG Drops Users. All the ladies in the group are super sweet and very supportive. They have helped me out in many ways. Please don't think twice of asking any questions. This is my first round on hCG and I've lost 28.2 pounds so far. I have 5 days left on Phase 2 and Im hoping to hit my goal of 30 pounds.

    Good luck
