About Me

Hi! I'm Anne. I have been fighting with my weight since I was in high school and I've finally vowed to myself that I'd get it under control. I've tied a lot of diets but now I'm just going to hope to eat healthier. I think that will work a lot better than trying to do a set program that I always end up quitting.

  • Is there any way to know if you have a thyroid problem other than having a blood test?  I’ll have the test done if I think it’s worth it to go, but Im very tired all the time and am wondering if that’s what the cause is.  Is being tired enough or would I have other symptoms if I had a thyroid problem?

  • Maybe you’re pressing too hard on them.  Mine don’t do that.  They’re not as smooth on carpet as on floor but they still go.  Maybe you’re on a funny angle?

    Have you tried one with turmeric in it?  I really like the ones that combine with turmeric.  Fantastic anti-inflammatory.  Good for the whole body and great for keeping down swelling, pain and redness.  Tastes great with green tea too.

  • I think that as long as you are willing and able to follow this diet exactly, it should be really helpful.  I’d probably ask my doctor first just because I wouldn’t want to end up messing up my nutrition during the very heavy elimination part.  I’d feel scared of being dizzy or something at the start of it.  I really think this could help to te…[Read more]

  • As long as you keep moving it should be beneficial.  If you’re just wading and walking a little bit in the water, it’s better than nothing but I wouldn’t call it cardio.  If you stay active most of the time, sure it’s good.  Might not be the same as a run but maybe the same as a walk 🙂  Look to your respiration as a guide.  Are you slightly out…[Read more]

  • I walked on snow just today and it was really easy. It felt like walking on a sidewalk.  Last week, I walked on snow and it felt like one of the biggest cardio workouts of my life.  It”s hard to say what the answer is without saying specific conditions.  Also depends on your footwear.  What you have on your feet can make all the difference in it…[Read more]

  • Thanks!  I didn’t even think of the google maps reviews.  It’s so simple I over thought it.  When I find a good one, I’ll see if I can sit in.  Good advice.  Thanks!  I’m nervous now haha.

  • I’d go for decaf, too.  I think caffeine is great and I love coffee, but too much fo a good thing is not a good hting.

  • I’m looking for a good spin class and every gym and even individual studios seem to offer them.  Even my local community center has a couple of them.  I want to keep up really good cardio in the winter and I want to be able to cycle comfortably when the weather is good enough to actually ride outside.  I’ve never been to a spin class though.  Wha…[Read more]

  • ow that’s awful . Maybe you should think about getting physiotherapy and ask your physiotherapist what you can do when you’re at home. That might help you to get more out of what you do because it will help you to avoid making a mistake that will only make things worse.  That sort of thing is something you shouldn’t mess with if you don’t know…[Read more]

  • Sure they are!  I think the key is to get calcium carbonate instead of citrate.  Ask your pharmacist to be sure

  • Anne replied to the topic snacks in the forum Health Forums 3 months ago

    What about baby carrots sliced into rings.  It’s super fast to do and because they’re small, you can keep going back for them.  But at the same time, they’re carrots so they take a bit to chew.  They’re crunchy and take a bit of time. Mix celery bits into the bowl for added flavor options

  • I would just want to choose whichever one is less noisy.  I hate it when I can’t hear the TV or if I bug my neighbors with it since I live in a building.  I think they both give a pretty similar workout but I would go with whichever one best fits into my home.

  • Anne replied to the topic best sweetener in the forum Health Forums 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    I think honey is probably best as long as it’s not pasteurized.  It has a lot of good properties in it though it’s still high in sugar so it’s the best one but still you have to use only a little bit.  Maple syrup sure tastes good though.

  • Which is better for use at home? An exercise bike or an elliptical? I’m trying not to fall behind on cardio this winter.  I dont want a treadmill. I do want very good cardio but without putting a lot of strain on my joints.  Any ideas?

  • I’m just going to throw in my two cents and say that I think both supplements and using turmeric in food is really good for you.  I definitely like it.

  • Anne replied to the topic Float tank? in the forum Swimming Forum 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    I tried it and absolutely loved it.  The only thing I didn’t like about it is once I forgot my ear plugs and my ears felt crusty on the inside from the salt.  It is Suuuuuuper salty so while it’s all good on your outside because you’ll be showering it off, it’s rough when it gets inside your ears because it’s hard to wash away.  I find that the on…[Read more]

  • I agree, Helen1. I don’t think ther’ese any way to actually measure it.  It just makes a difference when you have it under control again.

  • Anne replied to the topic swimming shoes in the forum Swimming Forum 5 months ago

    When it comes to aquashoes, go for ones that are comfortable, fit well and that are good and sticky on the bottom so you won’t slip.  It’s all just a matter of being comfortable and not falling.  That’s all that really matters with those because aside from that you’re just protecting your feet from athletes foot

  • It works.  It gets your cortisol under control.  Cortisol causes weight gain.  If your cortisol levels are reduced, you don’t struggle as much with weight gain, making weight loss easier, right?
