    Hi Guys!

    I am new on here, I have decided that I need some support with my weight loss / toning up what ever you want to call it!!!

    I am a 26 year old female, 5ft 5 weighing in at around 10stone 2, and I fit in most shops size 10. I do not claim to be over weight and I am aware there are people who would love to say what I just have. The problem I have is that the fat I do have is in a problem area i.e. my stomach and my mum is just the same!

    I work in a hospital and I am very aware of the health implications of carrying fat around my middle and so would like to loose it (I will be honest though a flat tummy for the bikini season would be great!)

    Before Christmas I lost half a stone with special k and the gym but my stomach had not completely gone, I put weight back on over Christmas and have been trying to tone up / loose weight again since January.....nothing!

    I got to step, body combat and ab blast every week and fit in the gym where I can, I am watching what I eat although I have knocked the special k thing on the head as that is only meant to be a temporary diet. Still nothing!... my other half told me my thighs and bum look toned but I don't feel any different except for fitter.

    I guess I am posting this as I want to know that my hard work will pay off at some point...am I doing enough etc I am one of these people who wants to do one class and loose all my fat, I am so impatient.

    hiya, have you considered liposuction? It sounds as if you have tried everything. I know it's expensive but maybe you could get a loan or save up. If your waist is 31 inches or under you should be ok health-wise.:)

    You are not really in the lipo stage yet?... Well I don't think so.

    Keep up the gym, 2 or more ltrs of water a day and smaller portion sizes. If u are doing enough exercise perhaps look at your diet, variety and less processed foods/snacks. You can do think hun!

    Its always the last half stone or so that is the most stubborn to loose on any journey. Stick with the gym and healthy eating; do you do any form of weights or ab workouts? Since starting a certain DVD I have noticed that I have become considerably more toned within just a month.

    I notice your a similar age to me, do you get much free time to spend working out? Where are you from?
