hi I was wondering if anyone could give me some stomach exersises. I've been doing crunches but I can't seem to get rid of extra skin that seems to have no elasticity after having twins 1 year ago. Someone told me that my stomach would always have hanging skin nomatter how hard I try, but I refuse to take no for an answer.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 180 lb, Today: 163 lb (BMI %tile: 95), Goal: 140 lb - Hey everyone! I am Marie..Here's a little information about me...I am about 5'4" and around 163lbs eek I know, But I don't really look fat I kinda hide it well lol but everytime I look in the mirror I get depressed about my weight! I used to weigh 180 but I lost the weight while dieting and doing the treadmill for an hour a day..It was easy but for some Reason I just started skipping days than soon I quit altogether 'though I wish I wouldn't have! I was on a role...lol but I am going to start dieting and exercising again! I know that anyone who wants to lose weight can really do it because if you want to bad enough' you will do anything in your power to! Just think food only tastes and feels good for that moment when your chewing it but being skinny will make you feel good, confident, and social! I want to get down to around 140 and i'll be happy :) and then I think I'll be more... (view more)

Has anyone tried The Firm tapes? If so, how do they work? Also, how much have you lost doing them?

Today: 192 lb, Goal: 150 lb - I remember when i was in 3rd grade and our teacher would weigh the students in front of the class and it would be my turn. i was the biggest kid in class and everyone would laugh at me. i was 9 years old and already 100 lbs. i remember i wouldn't eat at lunch. i remember each year after that i swore to myself and to my family i was not going to be fat anymore. i was going to change and become smaller no matter how hard it was. 6yrs later i am 15 and weigh 192 lbs. i don't know when i started gaining weight. i suppose it was when i started school. guess i could sue them huh? out of all my friends i am the fattest. i am in ap(advanced placement) classes and have a diverse personality and i get along with anyone who gives me a chance. but you see i am 15 almost 16 and i am becoming a young woman and i am starting to want that other person in my life to complete me, however guys today only...

Hey. I'm way up north in Minnesota, and we already have snow, so it's kind of impossible to be running outside. We just moved right in front of a track, convinently, but it's a little chilly to be using it! What are some good excercises that I could be doing inside? When we go back to the other house, I am going to grab the tae-bo tape, and do that for 15-20 minutes every morning before school, if I can manage getting up an extra half hour early ;o) Any other tips on how I can lose 30 lbs by March?

I'm gonna cry. why do guys i know al have to be shallow and not like girls unless they are a certain way. the one guy i really like only dates asians because he's asian adn whites are the last people he'd look at. according to my bestfriend-who went out with his twin and is asian and she also said that he looks at looks before personality. i hate being the way i am because its soo depressing. i am starting to hate myself.

Ht. 5'8" - I have a slight problem... and I was wondering if you all could tell me what you think a 14 year old girl, 5'8'', with a bone frame right inbetween small and medium should weigh?I know there is the weight calculator, but that is so generic. It never seems to fit me. =(
