So I just started yesterday and still don't know well how to use it but am doing my best to learn. I was in the 120's range through out most of my life. I got pregnant with my daughter and was on very restricted duty so no exercise and when I gave birth to her I was the exact same weight the next day and have gained 15-20 lbs since. My family are a bunch a skinny minis and dont really get it. My mom is always talking about needing to gain weight and my sister is always talking about toneing her size 4 flat tummy. So as you can see I don't get a lot of support in the way I need. They say things like "oh, you look skinny in that", "did you lose weight?" I weigh 180 lbs and eat no fried food, VERY little red meat, no soda or caffine and still cant lose the weight. My biggest issue is sweets! Cant get enough! So with all that probably unnecessary info said any advise on weight loss you can give is much appreciated and needed!!

So another question that is a little to much info question. I am a 34 I (bra size) and I know I will get smaller in that area, when I lose weight, it wont be much. I don't know if my goal wieght is what I should be going for or if I should go for less or more. BMI is not calculated with large chested women in mind. If you had this issue what did you do?

Hello.....You should keep your goal weight very present but I would set mini goals to reach your goal ultimate goal weight. Do you eat a lot of sweets daily? Are you exercising?

Get the "skinny minis" out of your mind. You have to put your focus on what you want to accomplish. Do not listen them because it is going to make you feel bad.
