Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

If you really are eating 1000-1500 cals a day and doing activity on a fairly regular basis, and not losing weight, I think you need to speak to a doctor fairly quickly, because that's not good. You might have to be insistent and present them with a comprehensive food diary covering a month or t...

re weight loss, bellies, etc: I also have a tendency to store fat on my stomach rather than anywhere else, in the last 12 months I've lost about 40 lbs and dropped 1.5 dress sizes... Abs are made in the kitchen. If you want a flat belly, you need to lose fat. The most effective way to do that is to ...
