I know I'm not really that fat but I still don't like my body. Before, it was really so easy for me to slim down but now, I am having a hard time doing it. I weighed 135lbs right now.

As far as I know yoga is also good for our soul am I right? I also want to try that yoga thing but I don't know how to do it or is there any "warm up" before doing that yoga thing? Could you tell me how to do that? what would be the first thing that I should do before doing the yoga? Thanks. Hope to hear from you soon, I'll gladly appreciate it.

Yoga is an ancient way of Indian exercise, it involves different breathing patterns. Its haed to expain it in writing, but if you strongly want to do it, you can buy the cd's online, you can search for it. In India we get the cd's of Ramdevji Maharaj, you can search by his name or by writing 'buy cd's online for Yoga', you will get some solution. And this is not just for soul, it helps maintaining weight, people who are too thin can gain weight and those with extra fat, can reduce it. This is the fastest way of maintaining weight, and it also keeps u happy and energetic whole day...

I am not really satisfied with my body right now. I weigh 130 lbs. But I just had a baby 7 weeks ago so I am working really hard to get my body into shape. Hopefully before long I will be able to answer this discussion differently. Have a nice day!

Oh yes, it will take a little more time to reduce your weight coz you just gave birth. nways, you're still young and you still have lots of time to do that.

Hi amzthienne. I am sort of having the same problem as you. I dont now your situation, but for me I believe it is due to the fact I am older and I take a medication that helps to keep the weight not lose it! I have 5 wonderful children.My youngest is 20 months old.The oters I had pretty much one after the other but that was a while ago.My seond youngest is already 13. I am now 33 and people have told me that when you get older weight is harder to lose. I am not sure if this is true but I've believed them. Another thing is I am on a daily medication that I was told will make it harder to lose! It is happening slowely, but I am losing! So, to your question, I am happy with myself and my appearence. If I stay this way without losing a pound I will still be okay.But, I sure wouldn't mind losing a few! I dont know, would that be considered satisfied? Happy Mylotting!

Hi... Thanks for sharing your thoughts. If you're happy and not bothered in your appearance then you are satisfied. What is more important is to always be healthy not only for yourself but for your love ones as well.

Hi there amzthienne I don't think any woman can say that they are 100% happy with their body. I am overweight and wished I could lose a fair few pounds. I am not sure how much I weigh because I don't ever weigh myself!

I am satisfied, I do exercise (bodybuilding). I go 3 times a week in to fitness with my friends. It is fun and it is good for my health and for body too. I try to avoid junk food and to have appropriate amount of proteins and so on. At this moment I got 76kg with my 185cm I think it is ok. But I am trying to gain some weight now, I would like to have about 80kg.

I am pretty content with my body right now. I weighed 115 last time I stepped on a scale, but I've been an little less active lately and I think that I have gained some weight. I too find it so hard to exercise as much and eat right. I used to be a waitress, so I would like power walk around the restaurant, but now I work at home so I am just sitting in front of a computer screen most of the day and it sucks a little bit for my body.

Its easy to gain weight but its hard for me to lose.I've been trying to lose weight but i am getting a hard time how.I am a little over weight now but i just can do something to reduce weight.I never restrict myself from eating food that i wanted to eat.I guess the only chance i can do to lose weight is to work very hard.I lose some weight before when i did work full time.So today, i started to work hard again, hoping to reduce my weight.

I am honestly happy with my body. I will say that I am not small, I can't fit into skanky cloths or anything that is fine with me because the on thing I can fit into is sexy cloths that cover my body. On top of that why should it matter what your size body is? The reason it dont matter for me is because I know that no matter what it is my mind and heart that makes me a beautiful person. Thanks and Happy Mylotting

Actually, Im disgusted ...I weighed 140lbs, still 10lbs over since I gave birth a year ago. I cant seem to shake the excess baggage off...And it seems to me that I am gaining weight... Apart from the weight, I dont like my tummy and hips.. It has gotten bigger since I first gave birth 9 years ago..I envy those actresses who gave birth to twins and got their shape back in no time..Of course they have plenty of money to spend.. But I am not losing all hopes..i will lose the unnecessary pounds and will work on it hard...I wanna be in shape again, if not as sexy as I was when I was single..

I am completely satisfied with my shape. When I was your age everyone said I was too skinny, but that was because times change and what was too skinny then is now desirable. They used to sell weight-gain aids and tell us nobody liked "98 lb weaklings" and that was embarrassing for men and women alike. I had to make my own clothes because size 5 was too big and they didn't have 3's yet. But when I was a little over 40 then I got up to 110 and I was so happy. 135 is not fat unless you are only 4 ft tall or something. If that is you in the picture, I sure wouldn't worry! Your dog is cute, too!

i am not satisfied with my body too. when i was 26 i have four children already but i was really slim. i can eat absolutely anything and a lot but the body does not show. now i am 38 and gained weight that is hard to trim down. but i just tell myself that people when aging really have the hard time to trim down for the metabolism is different than before. i am a single mom and always on the go so sometimes i can no lonegr exercise. but there is one thing that i know. i know that i am healthy for i always makes sure i get my health check once in every year. that makes me feel satisfied.
