My trainer was on leave for on leave for 3 months, then my dance trainer went on leave, my yoga instructor quit and became a baker and my circuit trainer moved to Alaska and I got bored with belly Dance. The only thing I was doing was Bootcamp one day a week and went back to eating chips and ice cream. I only liked those people because they are very instrumental in my life and they are my friends ( some closer than friends). Now my Trainers and Zumba Instructor is back and he helped me get my license, I… read more

Anyone have any advice on good shapewear?

Anyone have any advice on good shapewear?

I'm often bloated after eating anything & I've been asked if I am pregnant more times than I'd like to remember :/ I'm wanting something to kind of smooth out my tummy area & I can wear everyday but have no idea where to even start looking (brand? style? size?) Is that something you can usually try on at a store? I've assumed it like underwear, just not something you can actually try on before you buy?! lol TIA for any help you might have :)

Undereating

Undereating

People always think that because you're overweight that means you overeat. My doctor has actually told me that I need to eat more, but I don't normally have an appetite. I need meal suggestions to help increase my food intake. What can I do? Eating when I'm not hungry makes me nauseous, and my meds suggest I eat.
