I've nearly reached my weight loss goal but I seem to be stuck on the last 10 pounds. I am looking forward to getting to my goal so I can start maintaining and feeling great from now on. Why are the last 10 so hard?

Maybe you need a regular reassessment to be sure your calories, workouts and sleep are where they should be?

Thank you! I’m needing to sit back to take all this in. Sleep should be listed with diet and exercise more! It has a big impact!

Those are all good ideas. I can’t add anything. I’d definitely agree with the great basic kitchen tools and good athletic shoes and jacket on top of a few good trackers.

Thanks. Makes more sense to me now and now I know what I should be researching into a little bit more to understand it. I hadn’t even thought of hormones.

I’m probably not experiencing a wall like marathon runners do. I mean, they’re real runners, while I’m still a beginner. That said, I find that I’ll be chugging along happily for a bit, then I will feel that I not only need to slow down, but that I just want to stop and lie down on the sidewalk. I don’t even want to have to walk home. It’s so hard…[Read more]

I keep hearing that both too much and too little sleep make it hard to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. I definitely believe it, but is there a known reason that this happens?

The more I’ve looked into vitamin D, it has a ton of benefits. We really did evolve to be in the sun! Too bad it just hurts us now. Supplements should be recommended to anyone!
brightstar replied to the topic Best spring sport in the forum Weight Loss Programs 2 months, 1 week ago
I’d say baseball, tennis, and golf are all good as long as there aren’t puddles. It doesnt matter if it’s raining, you can play through that as long as the ground isn’t squishy and puddly in a way that would interfere with play or make you fall.

Super cool study was just published so I thought I’d share it here. I won’t put a link because those posts always get screened out, but it’s all over the news, so it’s easy to find. Researchers did a study across 10 years and found that people who take vitamin D supplements every day have a notably lower risk of dementia! Very cool, right? Vitamin…[Read more]

It’s always a good idea to wear some sunscreen. Skin cancer is a risk at any time. Even just a 15 is good. If you make it a part of your daily skin care routine, you won’t even notice you’re doing it before long.
brightstar replied to the topic Do I need an Omega 3 supplement? in the forum Supplements Reviews 3 months, 1 week ago
Supplementation would be helpful if you’re not regularly getting enough in your diet. It’s true that a lot of capsules are not as good as they’d suggest. A lot of people swear by the liquid form that is often a lot more expensive. I have no idea if that’s actually better or not, but that’s what I’ve seen when I’ve looked into it. The price of the…[Read more]

If you don’t have a stairwell, you could always do power yoga. That can work up a sweat fast but it’s perfectly quiet…other than the occasional grunting!
brightstar replied to the topic Quiet indoor cardio workout? in the forum Activity Forums 3 months, 4 weeks ago
you can run a stairwell at work if you don’t have one at home too. do it after work if you don’t want to have to head back to work after you get all sweaty
brightstar replied to the topic Anyone want to buddy with me over the holidays? in the forum Weight Loss Programs 4 months ago
I’ve started eating a fruit with every breakfast and a green veggie with every lunch. With those rules, I just do it more naturally and then I know I’ve got at least those two things in my system even before dinner. It doesn’t mean that’s the only thing I’ll have with my breakfast and lunch but it’s a foundation.

Turns out it went ok. Thank you both for your comments. I felt better that I wasn’t just letting myself down. I gained some weight and felt tired, but then I got my energy back and I’m doing ok now as though I didn’t even slack off for a bit. It was so good to just give myself permission and not feel guilty about it instead of trying to force…[Read more]
brightstar replied to the topic Anyone have a favorite for dry eyes? in the forum Supplements Reviews 4 months, 3 weeks ago
I like to combine visipro2020 with omega 3 supplements. I like the flax-based omega3 supplements because the other ones make my mouth taste like fish all day. It’s not subtle. It’s disgusting.

If I just stop trying for healthy food and exercise from now until December 31, how bad is it for me really? Will it really affect me in any big way or just not ideal but Ill be fine because its’ a short time. I’m just so tired of making an effort right now. I want to keep up with all my holiday prep, then I want to just relax between christmas…[Read more]
brightstar replied to the topic How thick should my yoga mat be? in the forum Gear Reviews 6 months ago
If you’re doing your yoga on carpet, 4mm is good. If you want just a regular workout on say wood floor, 5mm. If you have sore knees or are doing your yoga on concrete or ceramic tile, go for one of the thicker ones. Keep in mind that the thicker you go the more you’ll sink in a bit, so it could affect your balance. I think the average yoga mat…[Read more]
brightstar replied to the topic Trying flexitarian for weight loss in the forum Weight Loss Programs 6 months, 2 weeks ago
I tried flexitarian. I loved it. I’ve been eating a little more meat than I used to, but I still think I’m on a bit of that type of eating style. It makes it easier to gradually change your outlook on what a meal should look like. It doesn’t always need an animal-based protein.
brightstar replied to the topic Hungry after I exercise in the forum Activity Forums 6 months, 3 weeks ago
That’s great that it worked for you! I also recently found that if I exercise first thing in the morning, I don’t have any extra hunger throughout the day. I hope that helps too!
