They actually made special chairs for women who fainted from wearing corsets during the Victorian. Not surprising these women would faint when they're waist (and all digestive organs) gets reduced to half the size. Yeah, I don't corsets are the way to go.

@justachic, I sometimes do endurance biking too, but I'm more adapted to running.

Oh, All Right LOU! I'll get it out and do a session. I thought it would be fun to have one of those floor to ceiling dance poles . . .

Trish Hope you make it through all right. It just rained a lot! Don't skid!

See, Running, I didnt' know that about special chairs. I'm surprised the poor woman doesn't snap in half from a strong wind.

Speaking of corsetts (sp?) I was at the beach the other day when I see this girl with about an 18 inch waist! I might be exagerating the number a bit I'm telling you it was a tiny, tiny waist where the rest of her was rounded. MAN, I didn't believe it. I guess there really is such thing as 36-24-36! I say forget the corsett and get some SPANX. They really make a difference!

well I just got a good soaking . It was raining in town but not here when I got home with the gas for the mower. I had all the front done and half the back when I ran out of gas. I filled up and jumped on the mower and tried to finish before it hit. I have about 10 minutes left to finish. I looked in the field beside us and a huge wall of rain was headed right for me . I didnt make it back to the barn in time . It was sunny where I was mowing lol. It was strange seeing that water wall pushing the sun away and heading right for me !!! Well, now I am squeeky clean with 2 showers today

It did the same thing to me. I gained 4 pounds while taking it. I stopped and lost the 4 and back to 188 now. I guess its like the combo, works differently for everyone

I always had good results taking the liquid all at once, but from what I am reading, it says to spilt it up. That would have been hard to do with the liquid, but now that I am taking the caps, I'm going to split them up, half in the morning and half at night and see how that works, and hope I remember to take them all

chic, are you taking the cla/gla with the CO, or just the CO? I think that may be too many oils for my body, but I may try it again when we get back

Athens

Scattered thunderstorms, especially during the evening. Low around 70F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50%.

Atlanta
Isolated thunderstorms this evening followed by a few showers overnight. Low 69F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 30%.
~~~~~~~~~~~
Have y'all considered the extra calories in coconut oil? maybe? But then again it burns like carbs, so maybe any excess carbs are being stored and holding water temporarily?

Kimlou..... Educating your Dr on Spanx huh? I swear they take 10 lbs off of me!

Bugaboo and Trisha....I don't take the CLA/GLA combo with the coconut oil. Not really sure why you guys are gaining with it. When we gain 4 or 5 lbs quickly, it's usually water....not fat. Don't you feel like a bunch of chemists here? Tweeking and dialing stuff in until we get it right.

Just getting back from the Colorado River last night. We had such a blast boating, jet skiing, and just having a great time on the water. We really needed a vacation and I was happy we were able to go. Funny thing is, I felt like I gained 10 lbs over the weekend from drinking cocktails and eating all kinds of stuff. I think I'm gonna low carb it for awhile so I can lose some of this water retention. Hope you all had a great weekend!

G'dmorning Metqa!
Did you imagine yourself in the tropics standing under a beautiful and natural waterfall? The crisp water cascading over your head as the wild birds chirp and whistle loudly in the distance. Standing on the cliff next to you is your handsome and muscular Tarzan, smiling with appreciation.....

Like my romance novel so far???? Okay I'm being super silly today!

Day 2 of trying to correct myself on portion control as well as eating lower carbs. My goal is to drop some weight by the end of the month. I can do it! I can do it!

Have a great day everyone!

"why the heck are you in that water!!"

Thanks for the scenery Chic!

I need to lose a few too.

Kimlou....send some rain this way please. It rained briefly here on the coast yesterday and with the breezes, it felt like Hawaii weather. Beautiful! It only rains here in the winter and spring so when we get summer rains, it's really nice.

Well I took a break from the workouts and now I need to get back into it before I completely walk away. My all or nothing personality would really affect this part of my life.

I am the same way.

I left my Zumba video out the other day. My 17 yo stepson, came through the house and saw it lying on the entertainment center.

He covered his face and said " First Mom then now you, please don't show me what you have learned like she does. It's just not right..... " Oh, gotta love em.

I was going to take the class until I found out she had signed up too. For now I'll just do it in the privacy of my house.
