Today my brother gave me two BowFlex adjustable dumbell sets, SelecTech!!!

Just like those!!! Yikes! They are brand new! I really wanted some and wasn't even going to spend the money. The cost for used dumbells are 60 cents a pound. Now I can go up to 52.50 (which I never will). My brother rocks (actually he does, he owns two American Rock School's in Tampa - guitar/music schools and studios).

Yippee!

Excellent progress! You look fab, dahling :) Wow, great weights. Gotta get me some. What a great idea to make those. Are they in stores, do you know, or only online?

I've seen them at Play it Again sports used. But online they are so expensive. I would not have purchased them, gotta support my Vega habit at this point.

Thanks!

Anyone familiar with jiggly fat that gets jigglier and (smaller, though slowly)?

I didn't used to have jiggly fat. Thankfully, no cellulite! But more spider veins now that I'm lifting stuff. Like kids, weights, bags of cat litter!!

This is what I read on a secular (LOL) body building site:

***************
Jiggly fat is fat that has empty space interspersed through out the mass...most of the time caused by weight loss. I know all about jiggly fat after losing 420 lbs. in the last four years (not all at once, lost the 330 the first time and I am working on yet more).

I'll trade you. I take your jiggly fat and you can have my belly stretch marks. No matter how fit I get I will always look likeI have been mauled by Freddy Kruger.

strawberryriddick's awesome arms inspired me to post some of mine. I'm so happy, so far. Yeah, my pits look dark, it's partially the shirt (seriously) and then I have to shave, dark haired people, ahhh...

I'm almost getting both sides even. I started just working the other a little more.

My shirt reads "I am you, only different". My design...

I'm still maintaining at 121 and want to lower the body fat, so I'm on VeggiePrincess's program. I was gung ho, but then got so stressed out with finances, lack of support from my ex, and loads of work too (thank God), that the second week didn't go so well, but now I'm back on the horse again (the faux horse, I'm vegan ya know!).

So when I get stressed out, do I eat? Nope, I forget to eat and that's not good either, I chug stevia coffee all day, so I had one week in there where the calories were too low.

I'm back at it and forcing myself to make the effing time. I feel good after wards and I like to sweat.

The exercises are tough for me and I've noticed an increase in strength in my legs and upper body. I was at the playground two days ago and did under hand (bicep heavy) pull ups with chin over bar! I did three, rested and did a total of 9. I couldn't even do that before, but then again, I was much heavier before. So as I get waif like (kidding) I'll be able to take a bendy straw and aim it at my torso and blow myself over. Just checking to see if you're still reading.

Stay tuned in the next few days for an AWESOME website I've worked on for three of the kewl vegan rippitDudes here at VBBF!
