Size XL tops that generally have to be tailored, 34E makes it evil. And the price of bras... Hello Nordstrom. I would be a medium top without them.

Is it better to exercise in the morning or evening?
I work out at night, because I don't feel rushed. I will occasionally work out in the morning, but I spend my workout thinking of what I need to do that day. I also feel more hungry if I work out in the morning. I know people say it is a myth, but for me, the workout in the morning makes me hungry.

I belong to 24 hour fitness, and I love that I can go at any time. I'm a full-time student, and I am fairly busy. I go to the gym for my wind-down time in the evening. I work out hard, but I get a huge sense of relief while I am there- it signals that my day is done, and that the rest of my evening can be spent on me. I have a couple of friends I go with sometimes, and we work out, and then meet up for coffee or a diet Dr. Pepper at a nearby 24/7 fast food place to chat.

I think that as long as you find something that works for you and your body you should be fine.

Dieting in Silence or Full Disclosure
I will tell someone if they ask, but I don't advertise. I'm not hiding it, but I don't want to become one of those people who can't talk about anything but their weight loss. I have lost close to 60lbs, and by the end of this I will have lost about 100lbs. My weight, or lack thereof, does not define me.

Tearing my hair out!
I really think that you may want to reconsider Atkins, if just for a while. We are heading into holiday season, which is already hard, and adding a super-restrictive diet right before may not be a wise choice. I have nothing against Atkins, but it takes a really long time for the cravings to go away. I would advise that you do some sort of calorie counting through the holidays, and restart Atkins in January, after the parties and dinners are over.

I did Atkins for about six months before I became vegetarian, and you have to watch your protein and fiber. Your weight loss really does slow down with it, and you reach a point where you only lose a lb or so a week.

In the News: overweight women make less $$, overweight men make more.
I definitely believe it is true. It goes along with the study that says attractive women make more money. In our culture, fat is not attractive, so it would make sense that obese women would make less.

We also put less importance on a man's weight. Maybe a young man will be mocked or teased for not being super fit, but a college-age woman is pretty much tortured if she doesn't fit with the 120lb set.

This is super upsetting. I ate 1270 calories yesterday, drank a gallon of water, and took a zumba class yesterday. No way is this legit gain.

Started a whole bunch of new workout classes, so this is my usual five pound water retention. Very frustrating, because I have been following my plan ...
