In the past week
OK, so research shows diets don’t work, according to so many headlines i’ve been reading. But if you go to the doctor to lose weight, the first thing they say is that you have to diet. Also, research shows that what you eat plays the largest role in how much weight you’ll lose. So what do we do? What’s the best way to change your eating whe…[Read more]
Are vitamin d supplements actually doing anything for me? Do they work? I can’t figure out what the reports mean online. Some say you should absolutely take the supplements, my doctor says to take them, other reports say it doesn’t do anything at all. What should I believe?
I’m looking for an app with some great fitness tracking. I track my general exercise here but I’m looking for detail to go with my fitbit. I don’t like the fitbit app, but I know the devices will sync with other apps. Any recommendations?
I don’t think there’s anything you can do to automatically consider yourslef healthier. I think it’s a great step toward improved health and a component of a healthier lifestyle but it doesn’t mean that if your weight changes you can automatically know that there is something specific that will be better about your health. You can probably sa…[Read more]
I have a neighbor who uses it, too. I googled it and didn’t like the risks linked with it. It’s not for everyone and there are a lot of possible side effects. Definitely a “talk to your doctor first” supplement. I think it works if your natural levels are low, but if that’s not the case, you shouldn’t monkey with it.
I guess there are some that are cooler. I have one that is like wearing plastic wrap until you’re in the water. IT’s great in the water but I feel like i”m going to bake until then. If anything is going to give me a rash, it’s the heat from the rash guard until I’m in the water!
I’ve lost a lot of weight and have toned a lot too. I’m feeling great about my progress except that my legs and butt still have so much flab. Why do I keep losing and losing in areas that don’t need it anymore but I don’t keep losing where i do need it? I’m so frustrated. I even met my goal weight but I’m not even close to the shape I want.
Sometimes it’s worth it to spend a few dollars more just to shop at a store where the employees know what they’re talking about. In that case, yes, you may spend five or ten more, but at least you get the right thing. It’s better than spending less but getting less, too.
I find it’s much easier to eat healthy foods when most of the prep is already done. This is the same with weight loss friendly foods. Spend a couple of hours one day per week chopping up all the veggies that can be prepped in advance. Then, at your dinnertimes, just take out the containers of prepped veggies and use what you need. Cooking up a few…[Read more]
No. It depends on the one you take. Find one meant for beginners or something like that. They’re not as common as the more intense ones but you’ll definitely find them. If they didn’t offer those ones, they wouldn’t have enough people to participate because really who is that in shape?
Just wanted to thank you for bringing up this topic, Brightstar. Since you posted, I’ve been thinking a lot more about the clothes I’ve been buying, where they came from and what buying them will impact. I’d bought shoes that helped just because it was convenient, but I realized that I should be doing this more.
Thank you Anne and Brightstar. I feel a lot better now and am pretty much back where I was before. I thought that several days off my strategy and then recovery time to rebuild after would set me back farther but when all is said and done I’m only about a pound behind where I wanted to be and I’m exercising right back where I meant to be.
