I am currently at goal is 175. I know that sounds like a lot, but I am a "big made" girl, and any less than that (I know from past experience) I lose my curves. I would love to learn excercises that will tone and lift ~but not flatten~ my curves. I am so happy to see there are ladies out there who are proud of their femininity and don't look at it as "fat". I will never be a size 2 but someday I will be a thick, sexy size 12 again and I am perfectly COOL with that! ;) Sun, 16 Sep 2012 07:16:11 EST Hi! My name is Nicole.. Just wanted to say hello, an I look forward to being a part of your groups! Sun, 16 Sep 2012 06:51:38 EST ~waves~ Hello there. :) <BR> <BR> As I was looking through the lists of teams, I saw this one, and thought, "Now there's a group of ladies who understand that I want my tummy to get toned up, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my butt!" <BR> <BR> So, hello there. :D Wed, 23 May 2012 22:43:25 EST Curves! I know that curves are part of the reason that I fail to loose weight like I should. I don't want to loose all my curves, just the ones in certain places. I think butts, full hips and breasts are a plus and I want to keep mine, just trim them down, a lot. I'm looking forward to meeting new people. :-) Thu, 10 May 2012 09:51:51 EST Greetings Team! I'm new to SPARKPEOPLE and to the team...your advice and encouragement will be such a blessing...thanks in advance! Wed, 1 Feb 2012 00:35:48 EST Hello Hi! Im new to the team and so happy to be here..

I joined spark and really never did anything with my account until about a week ago. My mom got weight loss surgery last week and I was by her side the whole time.

I am back to kick this weight for good. I let alot of things get in front of me taking care of my health. As I sit here, I'm at the hospital waiting for my dad to come out of a quadruple bypass. I had already resigned the week before to get things lined up to start taking care of myself, then I got news of my dad. It solidified the fact that I need to get my priorities straight.

Hi ladies-wondering if anyone has tried and had success with Kim Kardashian's Quik Trim diet pills. I am not usually one for diet pills but I have not found anything particularly scary about these. They are still on the shelves after some time so I wonder that someone keeps using them. I don't want anything magic-I am perfectly willing to cut my cals while eating lots of fruits/veggies/protein but I need a little help with staying good. Thoughts? Thanks!

Hi, after digging into my wardrobe for my office attire, I found that I love the most are my ankle-length slightly dark red (between red and maroon) skirt and ankle-length light grey skirt - both skirts are more to A-line skirt, nicely loose, not too tight nor pencil cut.

I want to lose about 100 pounds but be able to keep my curves, I just love them so much. I think of of my biggest fears about losing weight was that I would lose my curves and my boobs.

So happy to be part of a team with my similar body type and goals. I am aiming to trim off the fat and keep a round bum and have a little bounce. My boobies aren't going anywhere because they go on for days, but I am hoping to trim them down a little so I can fit into dresses a little easier. My curvy inspirational ladies are Marilyn Monroe, Betty Brosmer, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendez and Kim Kardashian. They are all similar to my height and I hope I can look that hot one day very soon!

Sat, 13 Nov 2010 14:55:34 EST Best Shapewear? I need something to smooth out my tummy under a form fitting evening dress. <BR> <BR> I just ordered one from Victoria's Secret that is a thong style so the lines won't show in the back. It's supposed to have "firm" support. <BR> <BR> Do you have any favorites, especially for tummy control? I don't know if I'll like this one. If I don't then I'm sending it back. Thu, 11 Nov 2010 09:38:14 EST Sizing Sports Bras I wear a 34DD in regular bras. I've noticed that this probably isn't what I should wear in a sports bra. For example, the 34 gives me those bad red indentation marks on my sides. <BR> <BR> I should probably get a 36. Do you think that my cup would go down, or should I just try on some various size sports bras and get an idea? What are your experiences with sports bra sizes?

I am currently doing Jillians videos and I must say I am very happy thus far. Yes, I'm latin and curvy and I'd like to stay toned if possible. So I'll just check out everyone's post and hang out for a while with you guys. Thu, 22 Apr 2010 21:26:11 EST Heya! Hi, I just joined today and thought I'd say hello! I've been on SP for about 3 months and have gotten rid of about 1/3 of the weight I'd like to lose. I'm a recovering couch potato who's starting to like exercise. Having curves has always been a huge part of my life and I love them, I would just like to keep them in the right spots! I'm seriously hoping not to lose my curves too much, but I have a lot to lose. If the girls keep deflating, I may have to buy them a boost. I have hope, though, ... Tue, 20 Apr 2010 22:26:15 EST Has anyone considered plastic surgery? As I've lost weight, I've been doing everything I can to get things to land where they are supposed to. I can't imagine wanting the pain that comes with plastic surgery, but I'd really like to look the way I want when I've lost the weight. Has anyone else considered surgery for loose skin or deflated girls? Tue, 20 Apr 2010 22:22:22 EST Photo Food Diary Hey! <BR> So I read somewhere that taking pictures of your food before you eat it helps you lose weight and works even better than tracking your food by writing it all down after you have eaten it. I was wandering if anyone has tried this method and does it really work??? Thu, 15 Apr 2010 10:05:02 EST Mmm....curves I've always been curvy, and...well...lets just say I'd like to keep my figure, just overall smaller. :P <BR> Thu, 8 Apr 2010 20:41:28 EST Kind Of Curvy My Name Rachel and I am 24 From Baltimore Maryland. I am a mother of 4 yr Old twin Boys. I have curves on the top not really on the bottom, but as i get healthier i want to really create bottom curves. So i really need work out that will lift my booty up to make it curvier and a workout to keep my top curves, but tone them. Thu, 8 Apr 2010 12:54:23 EST New wannabe cur-vay Hi. Would love to find some great spark buddies even though i don't have much to offer in advice and all. Help me make my bits wobble in the right places! =) Mon, 29 Mar 2010 11:29:38 EST Newbie & want to stay Curvy! Nice to meet you all, ladies! I am new to the group. This group is a fab ideal! As I am losing and (blech) getting older-38-I have really noticed that even though I am just a couple of lbs. a way from goal weight, my former 25 yr. old round perky, butt isn't so round anymore :(. It used to be my best body feature. I had a Kim K butt before they were fab. I'm petite 5'1, and at current weight 107 (goal is 105) my hips are 35 inches. So, I need my butt to get back to curvy and perky not FLAT. ... Mon, 22 Mar 2010 01:41:44 EST Another new person Hi I'm Nikki.
