Good one! Looks like they were made for Fred Flintstone, I know. The fourth toe area fits in your last two toes. Truthfully, these are ultra comfortable, almost like wearing no shoes at all (I think that is the idea). They only weigh a few ounces. I just hope someone in here has them so we can compare notes.

Yeah, I think WW worked for me because of the accountability. Just knowing I was going to be facing that scale once a week, and that someone else was going to be seeing my weight and recording it, kept me on the straight and narrow.
I can't afford WW right now either, so I'm using this thread to keep me on track
I know this was mentioned somewhere in this thread, but I am too lazy to go through all of them
I just bought a pair of those super light sneakers with toes. They are supposed to improve running and are so light, you can do yoga in them. Does anyone have any experience with these new kind of shoes? I think they are referred to bare-foot sneakers.
They are very pricey, around 100 bucks, but I found a pair of Fila's on sale for 25 bucks.
I need an exercise that will help me nip my waist.
My family, by nature, are kinda straight from bust to hips, but we have hips. Blerg. I want to make my waist smaller by 3 inches I know losing weight will help, but any work out moves I can do at home for that?
Just took measurements. Bleh.
Hips 46 :-O
I'm 5'6.5 and 178 pounds this morning.
Size M clothing.
Size 10/12 pants.
I am healthy though. No weight related problems. Doc was happy.
One tip for getting active...mix it up.... it good for the mind and the body.
I try to do something active everyday for about 20-60 mins (depending on what it is) My job is very physical but I will do a weights circuit one day and go for a run the next then the next day i'll go for a kayak. I do yoga most days.
But by far the key to weight loss is what you eat...
@that_girl, unfortunately there's not much you can do for big hips except keep up the weight loss. There is some science to support insulin sensitivity being the contributing factor to the majority of fat setteling there but it's not conclusive enough when you factor in genetics and other things.
I wish I could tell you there was an exercise to help but anything like weighted side bends or oblique exercises can make the muscles around that area bigger. The only thing I can tell you for sure is that every 4-5lbs you lose will be about an inch off your hips and waist. Good luck!
Yea...also, my last pregnancy RUINED my ab muscles. I can feel the split in the middle. Great.
Hubs said to get to my goal weight and then maybe we'll talk about a tummy tuck I mean, I can lift up skin from that pregnancy that shouldn't be there. I'd be rather thin without it. I'm not one for plastic surgery, but this stomach skin is just kinda ew.
We'll see! Thanks for the advice.
best I can do is lose the weight and try my best to strengthen my core at this point.
