    Hey great hearing from you! I am losing in all of the right places but still have a way to go to goal! I've set some high standards with my eating so I'd imagine I'll be happy with whatever my bod decides to do from there!

    Hey 'bout the cheesy stuff, don't sweat it, like every woman's got it, some get it later than others, but there's not too much that can be done about it. By your teen years you have all of the adipose tissue (fat cells) your body is going to carry and cellulite is what happens when those cells get enlarged through diet and other factors. By losing weight, toning the bum muscles, and increasing circulation down there you can really improve things. I do a lot of intense cardio but I also dry brush before showering and drink TONS of water. I'm totally diligent about dry brushing because it stimulates circulation in the body (easy caffeine-free pick-me-up in the a.m.) and also eliminates waste from cells. Our poor lymph nodes really need this anyways for good health!

    I'm leaving in a short while for my week up North in NY, but I'll be back online in a little over a week. Have a great week and hope to talk to you again soon!

    Hiya hiya! I apologize I am just getting caught up on emails it has been absolutely crazy around here. The bootcamp is going pretty well but I fell a little short of my calories burned goal last week and with all of my travel and work this week, it's going to be tough to make goal again. I need to get that stuff all updated too. Will make up for it next week and kick buns!

    Have you decided on a new workout plan?

    Hey thanks for the post on my page! I'm glad I'm not going crazy, I couldn't understand why I don't look like the girl with the size 16 labeled on her! Doesn't help that I'm only 4' 11 " so I probably look even bigger. YIKES! Not for long! emoticon

    So, I went to leave a comment on Meshie75's page about your UK pic. For the Brits, those are regular sizes. The UK size 16 is actually an American size 12, the UK size 12 is an American size 8, the UK size 8 is an American size 4, the UK size 6 is actually an American size 2, and the UK size 4 is actually an American size 0. So yes, the model's size 4 is much smaller than you'd expect it to appear.

    The UK and the US used to use the same size charts until the American population started getting larger. Americans didn't like seeing the numbers on their clothing tags going up, so the designers and clothing companies changed the sizing chart. A size 4 US female is really a size 8 in the UK. And a size 4 UK woman is really a size 0 in the US. The women in Hollywood go by the UK or European standard sizes. If you go to clothing stores geared towards them, the sizes begin at -2 (UK size 2), then up to 0 (UK size 4), then 1 (UK size 5), then 2 (UK size 6), then size 4 (UK size 8). Rarely will you find a listed size 6 in any of the expensive boutiques, because that's essentially a size 10 (UK), and high-end fashion usually doesn't go into the double digits.

    That's why famous actresses look so much smaller in person than we expect them to look. Anne Hathaway, for instance, lists her size as 4, but in reality, she wears an American 0. The size 4 is the UK standard-- the couture standard.

    When I'm in the UK or Ireland, I have to buy a size 10, but here I wear a six. I have to admit that I prefer trying on the 6 over the 10! emoticon
