Great site. Listen, I've been trying to get back to the body I had 2 summers ago. I've always been rather slim and toned but now I seem stocky or something. My legs and butt are huge from living on the 5th floor of a walk-up and not doing much else in the way of exercise. I guess I've put on more body fat? Anyway, I'm 5'7", 129lbs currently. I want to get down to my usual of 121.I've been doing 50 mins of medium intensity cardio first thing in the morning before eating but having 100 calories of energy gel first, is that why the scale hasn't budged? I've also been cutting down on calories so having a hard time understanding why I'm not losing weight.

You have fungus you need to show it doctor, you may be living in very humid climate, your immune system was weak naturally or due to lotcof exercise. Anti dandruff soap can work , you can get at chemist. But you need to show it to skin doctor. Medicine are not expensive, treatment may last 2 week.

I have come across this site twice by accident. Maybe it is a message from God. I am 54 years old with lots of stress and worry. I work long hours and by the end of the day I have no energy or maybe I am too depressed to care anymore. My brother whom I no longer communicate with told me I was fat and was never going to loose it. That hurt me. I eat right, but mostly I think I don't enough during the day or forget to eat. I am unhappy and I consider myself fat and ugly even though people always compliment me on my looks. I have what is called the thunder thighs or saddle bags. I hate them. They are pure fat and I know I will never loose them.

Hi, I'm not sure if you will get this comment because you posted a while ago, but I wanted send you a hug and say that eating organic and healthy can help a lot with depression . Feeling healthy can give you a more positive perception of yourself, also getting away from a job that seems to consume your life and finding more time for the things you love will improve your life in drastic ways. Taking time for yourself, working less and filling your life up with things that make you happy will feel like a gift of love to yourself, and as a result you will feel happier and more confidant. Self care is really important, be your own best friend and take care of yourself. Sometimes we think that it's our body that is the cause of our unhappiness but often it's our unhappiness that causes us to be out of shape or have a negative view of ourselves.

5'6", 190 pounds? Jazmin girl, do us all a favor and don't appear in public in a bikini.

May 08, 2013


No Paul, you do us all favor and don't write dis-respective ridiculous comments. And Jazmin you enjoy your summer, and make some longer weight loos goals if you want to lose weight, like at least 3 months and then 6 months.. i know how is to be teenager and want a fast results, but if anyone is offering you solution in like 10 days, you should not believe in it, nor try it-even if it would work it would be very unhealthy

My legs and butt are huge from living on the 5th floor of a walk-up and not doing much else in the way of exercise. I guess I've put on more body fat? Anyway, I'm 5'7", 129lbs currently.

May 28, 2012


I am a girl. I had too much muscle on my thigh,calf, and arm due to the high intensity weight lifting and soccer in my high school. It looks big and not girly at all when I wear dresses. How can I get rid of these muscles? Does being inactive help shrink the muscles?I am currently on a healthy diet, and need to lose muscle weight.

March 31, 2012

Adrian Bryant

what is your weight & height now and do you know your body fat percentage?

April 02, 2012


I weight 130 and 5'2. How do I know my body fat? My body is toned. How can I lose muscle on my thigh? It looks too muscular since I did too many squat.

April 03, 2012


is it ok to drink that liter of cold water before you go to bed, and another thing if u do 40 minutes of cardio 3 times a week, and you go hard do you burn into your muscle

September 23, 2011
