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.

  • I think they’re probably good.  I agree that it’s not really the same as riding a real bike but if you’re someone who would otherwise just be sitting on a chair and watching TV or if you would be working at your computer, it must be a lot better for you to just be pedalling away instead of just sitting still. 🚴🏼‍♀️  It has to be.  It’s probably…[Read more]

    If you actually follow the diet as it should be followed, I have absolutely no doubt that you will lose weight if you need to.  It won’t cause you to automatically lose weight, but if you are overweight then it should put you into your healthy zone.  After all, it’s one of the most applauded diets for supporting people who want to keep their c…[Read more]

  • I’d say the same hting. Maybe lay off a little and take it easy.  You won’t lose progress but if you did hurt yourself if you keep making it worse then it will be a major setback.  If you’re still like this in a week, think of a doctor’s trip.

  • I would think that it depends on which pills and what you plan to do while you’re taking them.  Your diet will also play a big role in that.  If you are think of one or want to know which one is good you shoudl probably talk to your doctor before messing around with it.  The last thing you’d want to do is put yourself in some kind of danger for no reason.

    I think you’re right, that it’s good to set a goal right away.  I’ll just pick one and adjust it as needed until you figure out one that I feel is likely to be the best one for me. I guess I have to remember that my goal will change over time anyway.  As my step goal becomes easy, I wonder if I’ll maintain it or if I’ll want to boost it a little b…[Read more]

    I think it’s good to set a goal right away.  Just pick one and adjust it as needed until you figure out one that you feel is likely to be the best one for you. Your goal will change over time anyway.  As your step goal becomes easy, you’ll want to boost it a little bit over time. That way, the goal will always work for you and you won’t lose y…[Read more]

  • That really does sound scary. How do you know i fyou have it?  Are there symptoms of it?  Is it something that is identified if you go to the doctor for your physical?

  • I’m trying to figure out how many steps I should program into my fitness tracker per day.  I know the goal for the average adult is supposed to be 10,000 per day, but how do I know if that’s right for me?  Should I be doing more or less than that and how can I know if I’m at the right daily goal?

  • You’re probably right.  I guess they dont really know for sure in these studies.  I’m always reading the findings from these things and taking them at face value.  It’s hard to know what to believe and what not to.

  • I agree with Helen1 that bike shops that also sell second hand are the way to go if you want to make sure you’re getting one that will be in decent condition or that will be fixed if it doesn’t turn out to be as good as it looks.  Still, they’ll usually mark up for that.  It all depends on how much your friend knwos about bikes and tuning them u…[Read more]

  • I read that if you drink a lot of soda and juice when you’re pregnant, you increase your kid’s chance of obesity later in life.  Is that true or a myth?

  • You can always get lighter ones – like 5 pounds – if 10 pounds is too heavy.  They’re not so expensive that you can’t just replace them as you need to.  It’s important that you don’t overdo it or you can hurt yourself and hold yourself back.  If you go to a good sports equipment store, they can help to advise you about what you should be bu…[Read more]

  • I’ve never seen light ice cream before.  can you recommend a brand?

  • My doc told me to take the supplements, too but envirotodd is right that you can get it from a lot of foods.   Lots of fatty fishes like salmon, tuna, and mackeral are really good sources. Egg yolks have it, too, and they’ve got to be my favorite source of vitamin d because they taste amazing.  If you live in a place where your dairy has vi…[Read more]

  • Ok guys I really like ice cream.  I also like ice cream bars.  I’m not wild about sorbets and other fruit ices and fruit flavored popsicles and things like that.  They’re ok but I’m just not too into them.  So if I can’t have ice cream with its million calorie scoops, what’s my alternative?  I want something rich, creamy and delicious.  What’…[Read more]

  • Anne replied to the topic kettle bells in the forum Gear Reviews 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    Why don’t you try heading to the gym to take a class using kettle bells before you actually buy them.  They’re surprisingly a lot of fun and htey’re very challenging.  You’ll be able to learn how to use them, what weight is right for you and how many you want to use.  Then you can take what you learn and get your own if you like it.  Or you mgi…[Read more]

  • bad, bad bad idea.  don’t mess with medication, especially not stuff like that.  It’s not worht it.  Even if it did work it woudl be for a short time.  but as you do it, it will hurt you.  You could shorten your life by a lot.  Is that worth an inch around your waist?

  • Curves is mainly about exercise but if I’m not wrong, they will probably be able to give you some advice in terms of nutrition.  Maybe not an entire diet plan but they can probably give you suggestions for how much protein, fat, carbs, etc you should have.

  • I just Googled it and hte Arthritis Foundation says that there has been research done on it and any improvements to actual joint health and function have been pretty light.  That said, unlike what the supplements say about the products, there haven’t been any studies saying that it will improve pain either.  Sorry: h…[Read more]

  • Thanks.  I think I will start with just twice a week to see how it goes.  THen maybe I’ll add a day if I feel like I’m not going too intense or hurting myself.  I’m glad I”m not the only one who thinks about these things! 🙂
