I have a friend who's husband wants to put a stripper pole in their basement. He keeps telling his wife that it would be a good workout.....

Erin-you are a riot. I think my DH would even spring for belly dancing lessons! Good suggestion, Mada and Erin.

oohhh belly dancing is soo much fun. I thought it was sorta funny at first but after doing it for awhile and finally getting everything to move the way its supposed to it is a blast.
Hehe though I can only do it when the hubby's not around or I end up in trouble [:I]

Hi Erin, did you like the belly dancing? I have a couple of friends who are really into it. Didn't seem like something that I could relax doing but if it helps......

Gratz!

I have lost half the weight I want to (35lbs from August to December)
and am hoping to lose another 30 lbs by May hehe. I have done mostly walking, some pilates and belly dancing, and reduced the calories in my diet.

Nancy,

Good luck with sticking to it! IT sure is hard. As I type this, sipping a Corona......[:p]

Tomorrow is my extreme cycling class, so I am ready to go to it!!

Good for you, Michelle, to know what to do. I have so many "problem" areas it is hard to know what to work on first. Sadly enough, I gained back 15 lbs since Oct. So, here I am starting over again...sigh. But, I really like Pilates and I walk or do the eliptical trainer daily. I still do weights but, like you I cut back. The biggest change I made is I try to eat 2 servings of fruits or veggies at every meal. I cut out sugar-and yes, I am hard to live with! It's the stickin' to it that I really have to work on!

Good to hear from you.

Nancy,

Be gratful that your skinny minnie has pudge somewhere! I love chubby thighs on babies!! My girl is getting pudgy and refuses to open her mouth for any babyfood that isn't sweet, the monkey!! She is still such a sweet natured girl. She'snow getting up at 3 am to eat, but I put her back down and then when I get up at 7:30, I check on her and she is wide awake, playing in her crib giving me the biggest smiles.

As for our thighs, pilates really helps with that. My thighs are humongous!!! They have been going down though since I am back on track. I think the dpinning plus the pilates has helped alot. Interestingly, my middle needs work too. My pants are loose in the butt and thighs but still alittle tight in the middle. I never had that problem before so it is hard to change my workout habits. Oh well!!

Hey Catherine,

I like my tape but, I think I am going to take a class anyhow. I find it very relaxing.

What is it with the inner pie/thigh thing? My Janie skinny legs has that little pudge too. What's the deal?
