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.

  • 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.

    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 🙂

    Thank you Brightstar and Helen 1.  I think I will try it. I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t the only one who thought it looked like it might be right. I  guess you can’t tell until you try it. Ill just get one bottle to test it out.  Wish me luck! 🤞

  • When you feel ready to give it a try, just go for a it a little at a time.  Even if you just start with thirty seconds and you walk briskly the rest of the time.  If you feel your walk just isn’t doing it for you anymore, then just give it a try but don’t over-do it.  Add a bit more as you feel that you can do it, but don’t push yourself so ha…[Read more]

  • Looking for opinions on 3G Burn.  I’ve already got an energy supplement that I’m ok with, but I want to go all natural.  If I choose 3G Burn can I rely on it like I do with my current one?

  • I don’t have diabetes.  Is it safe for me to use something like keto or fasting or things like that, that play with your blood sugar levels? Am I just being dramatic by being nervous?

  • Thanks.  Now that you’ve said that, brightstar and helen1, I’ve started looking into teas more. There are still some benefits to tea you can feel and trust.  But it’s not what a lot of them claim.  Some can help with pain or can settle a stomach or act as a laxative.  For other things like weight loss, it would take a ton.  It’s a matter of sort…[Read more]

  • I think if you have a bpa one, you fill it, use it within the next couple of hours or so, then pour out the water you don’t drink, you should be fine. You should be fine as long as you keep it clean, too.

  • Everyone online has been claiming that green tea – and then more recently red and black tea – are super good for you. But then I’ve also read warnings to consumers to say that we shouldn’t believe those claims.  Ya, the teas are great if you drink them by the gallon, but it’s important to be careful with how much you believe for a realistic…[Read more]

  • Just work gradually.  Reduce what you put on your plate by a little bit at a time over time. It will help without your belly ever even knowing.

  • I’m going for swimming if you want the most complete workout.  The only way you could get the same thing from cycling is if you added an upper body factor of some kind other than just holding on to the handlebars.

  • I was about to say yes that it helps to prevent a cold but then i looked up what helen1 said. I guess it’s just if you’re normally low in vitamin c that it helps. Onc eyou have enough, having more doesn’t really help.  So I guess it’s more about asking yourself how much you normally get in yoru diet. Then you can find out if you need to top it up.

  • I’ve tried all the tricks. I”m active, i eat a lot of fiber, I drink lots of water. I eat protein. I just can’t stop feeling hungry in the winter.  I don’t know if it’s a problem with seasonal affective disorder or something. But I’m hungry all the time. I’m hungry right after I eat.  I think it’s the cold weather making me fat. Is anyone else g…[Read more]

  • Looking for a magnesium supplement for sleep and calm. Is citrate or glycinate form better? Does one absorb better than the other? Is the effect really real or is it pretty much just placebo?

    Thanks! I’m eating my breakfast right now and I’ve added 10 raisins. I guess that should be fine.  Thanks again!
