I Need To Update My Arm Pits

Hello Divas!!!

I just did a search for how to reduce black armpits and was surprised to see that this site ranked as number 5 on google for those results.

I guess my awful black armpits really were a hit with everyone since I posted pictures. It also means that I am not alone in this terrible journey although I have been seeing more people post better results than I did.

I guess it is time for me to take some more pictures of my armpits and show the progress or lack thereof on going from ugly black armpits to pretty, normal ones.

I am still waxing my armpits....although I did have to resort to shaving one time when I did not have any wax.

I will get some new pics up soon.

Going On a Crash Diet

Hello Divas!

I know this is terrible advice but I am desperate right now. I have to go graduation in one month so I am going on a crash diet for the next two weeks to help lose some weight.

I have been eating about 1700 calories a day but I plan on cutting that down to about 1300 for the next two weeks and doing a mini fast on the weekends.

My typical day might look like this:
2 scrambled eggs
1 yogurt
1 green tea with honey

2 slices of bread with peanut butter
1 soymilk
1 cup pineapple

handful of pecans

1 banana/1 yogurt
glass of lemon cleanse

I think this comes to the calorie level I need to lose some weight quickly and will prevent me from becoming too hungry and fainting during the day.

I tried the lemon cleanse thing but could only go half a day without feeling like I was losing my mind.

This should help me to lose about 8 lbs in the two weeks so wish me luck!!!!!!

Taking Up Yoga For Weight Loss

Hello Divas!

I have been fighting with my weight on and off, mostly in the form of cursing it and wishing it would go down.

I have never been big on exercising as I always seem to find an excuse not to go. I started walking a mile around a track near my home, but then would get blisters on the second day and would quit until next week.

I even took up hula hooping while watching television but would quit on that after about three days.

I recently decided to try yoga because even though it is not high intensity or high impact it can help a little bit with weight loss.

I got a 5 minute routine that I do (almost) every morning and have stuck with it for the last two weeks. I plan on doing that routine every other day...which I know is not much but is still a commitment I can make. Having it every other day means that I do not freak out and hate myself if I miss a day because I can make it up the following day.

Once I have been able to do that routine every other day for two weeks then I will gradually increase the amount of time I spend on yoga.

Lost Some Weight

Woo hoo!!!

I have managed to lose 12 lbs since the beginning of the year. I have not been exercising, just doing some yoga and hula imagine what I could lose if I actually did some cardio.
