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.

  • 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

    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 3 months, 1 week 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 🙂

  • Anne replied to the topic 3G Burn for energy in the forum Supplements Reviews 4 months ago

    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.
