ok, I've been scanning this section and I'm seeing tons of super awesome tips, but I'm also appalled at the lengths us women are willing to go to drop a few pounds. holy s***. Now, this is slightly hypocritical, since I occasionally go on the "eat as little as possible without passing out diet" BUT. This past year I lost lots of body fat and some inches. I was and still am a size 4, but everything fits sooo much better now. I did it by eating HEALTHY and eating normal portions, and by exercising 5-7 days a week. Ladies. plz, pretty plz, do not go on those dreadful diets where you deprive yourself of any real kinds of food-- just to lose weight fast. = / I'm not meaning to come across as judgemental ( forgive me please if I do) I'm just very disheartened and a little discouraged. I assumed this section would help inspire me to keep up with my workout regimine during the summer. but all its making me want to do is go on a diet where I suck on lemons and don't even allow myself water.
