    Guess it might be a stupid question.

    But how do you lose weight off your hips and stomach without gaining abs or six packs?? I really don't want a six pack or any of that muscly stuff shown in exercise videos or on television. (Picture attached as an example) I just want to lose a lot of weight and get a flat...

    Growing up, I was a little chubby.

    I hung out with the popular crowd of beautiful skinny girls and i was known as the "cool but chubby chick." I hated that! No one wants to be known as "that" girl. I am 5'2 and back then, 130 pounds was ALOT of weight. (i know , it's not that big).I became anorexic and lost...

    Nearly home and some guy (whom I can't see) says something like "losing calories?". Then nothing else. I thought maybe he was speaking to someone else and I misheard but as I was walking away nothing else was said. WHY do people have to make this journey miserable? How do they...
