@Lauren, do you find lax tummy muscles a problem? Mine are really bad. They told me I needed to have a 'healthy' waist measurement of under 32 inches, but even when I was really skinny, my tummy couldn't shrink back that far (I've had three kids and ballooned with all three). I think perhaps for us, the waist measurement thing isn't that useful to estimate our health.
Mind you, I'm currently at 39inches, and there is no way that's good
I'm also two stone overweight and on gabapentin that makes me hungry all the time. What I need is some willpower. Anyone got any to lend?
