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.

  • Thanks! I was afraid of that.  Makes it so hard when I can only buy them online. The only way for me to find out if one I like is too hot or not is to order it.  Maybe I’ll try to come up with another idea.  Not sure what, but we’ll see.  Thanks so much for your help.

  • Don’t give up.  I know that feeling.  Your body will shift its weight loss as you need it. If you’ve lost enough in one place it won’t keep coming off there forever.  make sure you’re toning themuscles in that area, too.  That way, you’ll have a great looking body as the fat is gone.  In fact, maybe toning is all you need so it looks like you’…[Read more]

  • How hot are those long-sleeve/rash guard swimsuits that protect you from the sun?  Like if you swim but then hang out on the beach, will you feel like you’re going to die? I can’t tell online and none of my local stores seem to have them.

  • Thanks!  By the way, this really is a friend of mine and not my story. I know people say “my friend has this health condition” when they’re talking about themselves, but this is my best friend and I’m so worried about her and just want to know what’s going on with her so I can be there for her, too.

    I looked for it at the store, but I couldn’t find it.  Does my store not carry it or did I miss the season for it?

  • My best friend has issues with eye pressures.  Does exercise affect that? Is she putting herself at risk by exercising all the time? WHat should she avoid?

  • It’s not just about how much you spend.  I’ve been to some great stores with a huge mark-up, and I showed up knowing more about some of the shoe models. It’s not easy to keep up with every option in a huge stock that keeps changing.  But if you’re not comfortable with what a sales rep has told you, head to another store until you find someone w…[Read more]

    Low carb is still huge.  It’s just not really Atkins anymore. Too much research has gone against goign that extreme and not focusing on nutrition.  But reducing your carb intake is still important.  You need a good macro ratio

  • Anne replied to the topic Spin class in the forum Cycling Forum 2 months, 1 week ago

    Some definitely feel like it. Others aren’t.  They’re all meant to really push you and make you sweat.  So don’t just sign up for one to feel like a calm bike ride.  That’s not what it’s about.  But find one meant for your fitness level.  I find that a lot of spin classes give variations of challenges so that everyone can choose the option best…[Read more]

    Great to hear it!  It always seems far worse at the time than it actually is.  The setback stinks, but it’s not too long before you’re right back on it again.

  • Have you seen BeGood for tees? They’re super soft and about as eco- and socially responsible as you can get.  They’re out of California.

  • You’ll regain the weight you lost from being sick.  Likely most of it was water weight anyway because you get really dehydrated when you’re sick.  Jump into things as much as you feel you can handle them, but when you’re not sure, just ease into them.  No reason to go full-tilt.  One extra day of taking it easier on yourself isn’t much in the gra…[Read more]

  • Thanks! I guess i really misunderstood what forskolin is. I think I still like the idea of having it in a diet pill, but I want one with stimulants in it. I really am concerned about my dragging energy levels and what it’s doing to my up and down motivation.

  • By the end of the month, you’re still losing 5.5 pounds.  That’s a good number.  If your total after 4 weeks stays like that, I’d say you’re doing fine. If you want to lose weight faster, you’ll probably have to eat fewer calories.  That might make it harder to keep up over time. I’d be proud of what you’re doing.

  • I’ve been considering a forskolin supplement but will it help me with workouts and energy or is it just meant to be helpful with losing weight overall. I’m a bit confused about what it does now that I’m looking into it. It seemed clear at the start.  Now it’s not. can anyone help?

  • A lot of the impact of age has to do with where you are when you get started.  If you’re 55 and you haven’t had an active lifestyle for 25 years and you have been eating junk food all that time, you’ll find it harder to lose weight than someone who has been pretty active and who eats ok but just has to scale back on calories a bit.  The bodies a…[Read more]

  • Start with your doctor or a dietitian.  You really need an expert’s help if you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s important because your nutritional needs are slightly different.  Your body’s needs are slightly difference.  I hope you find the guidance you require to get you started.

  • Anne started the topic Bike helmets in the forum Cycling Forum 5 months ago

    I’m looking for a biking helmet that’ll do the job but is there one that won’t leave my hair flattened.  That way I can go to work or a store or somewhere else in public without looking bad even though I wanted to stay safe cycling in traffic on the way there.

  • I think you’re supposed to wear baggy clothes to tai chi and more fitted stuff to yoga.  Tai chi has a tunic and pants that look like scrubs.

  • They definitely exist. I think it all depends on where you go. They’re available at my local community center both for adults and for seniors.  Looks like adults want to learn to swim non-competitively, too 🙂
