    I have gained a lot of wait and I am now feeling sluggish and the bulges I have are making me feel like I don’t take care of my body.

  7. February 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

    Just have to say while the content of the book may be wonderful, the title is awful. Getting “skinny” should not be anyone’s primary goal, getting fit and healthy should.

    I gained 90lbs when I got pregnant… 3 years later I’m *only* 20 lbs away from where I started but have hit another plateau. My last plateau was 30lbs ago and lasted 2 years. I’m not trying to go another 2 years before losing more weight! I have fibromylagia and weak joints from juvenile arthritis, I NEED the weight off of my joints!

    Actually the book is for my sister. For some reason she thinks she is “fat”. She’s not happy though if she’s not a size 2! Of course, I should keep the book for myself because I DO need to lose quite a bit of weight, but hey, she’s the one stressing, so…

    I think I weigh more now, than I did right after having my son 2 1/2 yrs ago. I had back surgery 4 months ago & was on bed rest for 8 wks afterwards. It kind of sent me into a depression to feel so isolated from my family routine & unfortunately, I ate my sadness away. But NOW, I am back to walking 30min/day & following a physical therapy routine on a daily basis. I need to whip myself back into shape so that I can be as healthy and active as possible (within limits due to my surgery) with my husband & son this summer! Thank you!

    We have had lots of stress lately including our dog who we just put down. I gained about 5 pounds and hate how my clothes feel so tight and how I look. I have got to lose it.
