  • This. I personally don't drink it often because it smells like stinky feet to me, but my husband drinks it faithfully every single night to help fight heartburn and indigestion. He mixes it with water and honey.
  • Sorry, I used BMI when I should have said Body Fat %. Thanks for the info. I actually have the original NROLFW book, but haven't started it yet as I have been focused on calorie deficit and just getting 2-3 workouts in addition to my PT. I like the idea of eating at maintenance, 'cuz I looooooove to eat! :p
  • Okay, my terminology bad. Replace BMI with Body Fat % Same questions.
  • Okay, so I am going to resurrect my own aged thread.....sorry. I'm *still* clueless about what I should be doing right now! I am currently at 140-145 lbs and don't know my BMI (will check later today at home). I'm carrying flab around my middle and upper thighs and now, God forbid, in my arms. :# Let's assume my BMI is…
  • I concur with the posters above. 1. make you sure get the right size bike 2. leave hubby at home and tell him you appreciate him, but to hush that you can do this! :) do this for YOU, no one else 3. don't worry yet about keeping up. that will come with practice. 4. once you get a bike, find a nice flat parking lot and…
  • What kind of strength training did you try? And what areas do you want to tone/firm up? Maybe you just haven't found the right way for you. I don't care for certain exercises/methods, but don't mind others. Some folks like going to the gym and pumping iron, some like crossfit, some like doing only body resistance stuff at…
  • Mines open!
  • Yep. Open! I love getting ideas from others’ diaries!
  • congrats! I am an occasional IF. I almost always fast Friday/dinner to Saturday/dinner. And maybe Thursday/dinner to Friday/dinner if I work at home those days. I do have coffee though, with sugar and half and half, so I guess it isn't a true fast. :) But I'd like to incorporate a better IF routine as I wean off the sugar…
  • Tips on zoodling? What kind do you have? I'm not sure my is the best quality because my zoodles never look like what I see here. Maybe user error?
  • That is awesome! Congrats!
  • I'm a developing gardener, and hope to begin expanding from small things like herbs, tomatoes and strawberries to greens, squash and more over the next year... and I'm about to start my own composting, too, sooo win/win even if I don't follow through with preparing something new. I've thought it would be fun to take the…
  • I am bookmarking this thread! @purplefizzy I need someone like you in my life to cook for me! I am lazy and uninspired. But if I had someone making your dishes for me, I'd try them all! They look so good. I don't know why, but I never branch out to try new veggies/veggie recipes, especially if a recipe has other…
  • Greetings all! Home with the kiddos all last week and didn't manage to post or even log in to MFP since Thursday! Had one glass of red on Monday, two glasses of red Wednesday night with T'giving Dinner, and one (large!) glass of red Sunday night. My goal was to make it to Thanksgiving. I didn't make it, because of that…
  • Happy Monday all! Back to square one for me. No regret or guilt or anything, because I was in the mountains and that red wine was divine in front of the fire! I'm on break with my kids this week, so I don't know how much I'll be on the boards, so if I don't jump back in, hope all my fellow Americans have a wonderful…
  • And I'll say one more thing that may have already been mentioned (haven't been through all the posts just yet): Please be kind to yourself. You will have hard days. You will make bad choices from time to time about how much or what you eat or will choose not to exercise one day. But DON'T beat yourself up about it and give…
  • Nope!!! It is a family potluck and I can't imagine the PITA it would be to WAG all the cals. Like @jessiferrrb said ^^ I plan to do work my tail off at the gym in the AM day of and day after.
  • I remember a proverb or saying I heard once that says: Eat like a king for breakfast, A prince for lunch, And a pauper for dinner. I think it is fine to have your heaviest meal in the AM if you are feeling satiated with what you eat later in the day, which I'm not sure if you are based on your post. I will assume you…
  • I have nothing more to add to what the other posters have said above; they are all spot on. But I can offer encouragement and support if you need it! I just don't understand mean people; they must be miserable....sorry that happened to you.
  • Hmmmm, in my old age of 44 I thought I'd already posted in here, but maybe it was another 40s thread...? Anyway, married working mom of 2 here. Battling the back fat and tummy pooch that is oh so fun. I have an open diary and profile, too, if you'd like to check it out and see if we'd click!
  • Ooo I love getting new workout clothes! Motivates me to get moving!
  • So I'm not the only one who thinks this! Also, when people let their kids put stickers all over the car windows. This is why we can't have nice things.
  • I love you. ETA: also, people throwing apostrophes around willy nilly. Bug's the heck out of me! ;)
  • Hey guys! We are over the mid-month hump!!! Yay us! I've made it 15 days. Going to spend the weekend relaxing in the mountains so I may have to cave and enjoy some nice red wine in front of the fireplace. Even if you're not going fully 100% without, just know that even cutting back is better than no changes at all, right?
  • For the record, I'm one, but only in my head. I would never correct someone unless they asked, because that's just jerky. Well, maybe in private out of love and in a nice way. And you probably have better grammar than a lot of native speakers!
  • I'm 5'8" H-147 last winter L-as an adult, probably around 120 or less. Didn't ever weigh myself then, but was not curvy, fit or strong, just thin. C-142 G- don't have a goal weight as much as the feeling of "I'll know it when I see it." I want to be fit and strong and know muscles weigh more than fat! And if that means I'm…
