I've declared war on my unrealistic expectations. I will not have Janet Jackson's abs. So I have to make sure I just look and feel my absolute best by having a proper meal plan (I will not use the word diet anymore) and exercise. I will have days when I don't feel like working out, but I will still do it because it is going to make me feel better, not because I want to look like anyone else. I will not let anyone else's expectations of what I should look like at 38, 48 or 58 determine what I do for myself.
Yes. I was informed about cortisol by my doctors and they say it plays a huge role in weight loss but is best control with stress management. I guess that's why I'm de-stressing and instead of focusing on my stomach fat, I'm going to attempt to focus on my over all health. No scales for me until I go to the doctor. Thank you Divinodana!
I've lost almost a full inch off my waist since I started using daily burn. I think this is what I needed to get me over the hump(s).
After suffering a late term miscarriage, I've been carrying tummy fat for the last ten plus years. No matter how much I exercise (cardio, lift weighs, do Zumba, walk four miles a day), I can't get my stomach post pregnancy flat. I already eat a low fat, high protein meal plan and because I have had medical problems in the past I can only eat 1000 calories a day to keep my health under control. I've incorporated gluten free items into my plan but I'm 38 and not getting any younger. I haven't worn a two piece bathing suit in my entire adult life. Even after having laser lipo, and only experiencing very minimal results (in my opinion), I'm beginning to think a completely flat stomach just isn't possible for me. I'm 5'10" and a dress size 10 at nearly 200 lbs. I don't want to be skinny. I like my curves, I just want my stomach flat. So should I just continue exercising to stay healthy and embrace my never changing midsection or what?
