  • I recently went to visit my sister in law in Baltimore (my husband and I live in Western New York) and I became obsessed with crab chips! We brought home 8 bags. Not a new product but new to me!
  • This has happened to me several times with my fitbit. First make sure your fitbit is listed as a connected bluetooth device. Then try turning your bluetooth off and on again. If those don't work, turn both your phone and fitbit off then on again. Lastly (this is always what I had to do) unpair your fitbit from your phone…
  • @kshama2001 that would be nice but I don’t think my company could ever do that because of HIPPA laws (HIPPA laws protect sensitive and medical info such as social security number, medical records, etc) I am a social worker in the medical field so we have a lot of HIPPA protected information that we need to keep secure. I…
  • I know it’s not diet related but I am really feeling this today!
  • Edited because I saw that this was already covered on this thread, that’s what I get for not checking it for a couple weeks! Lol🙄
  • An entire mountain of chili cheese fries!! With extra nacho cheese please!
  • Those Necco brand pink wintergreen candies, (not to be confused with necco wafers). My dad always had them in the house growing up but they are impossible to find now.
  • Yes that is the main place I shop Ann Taylor or LOFT, sometimes New York and Company but like I was complaining about they are on the pricier end so I have to wait for sales or coupons. Luckily I have been at maintenance for a few years so I have a decent wardrobe built up, but that took quite a bit of time and when things…
  • I think the store was 5-7-9 and at least near me I have not seen any in the past few years. They also catered mostly to teenagers so everything was crop tops and short-shorts, it would not be a place to go shop for work clothes or really anything I would want to wear lol
  • To piggy back on the clothing piece: I am a US size 4/XS and I find that I cannot even find clothing at the Major department stores where things tend to be cheaper/ on sale more or I have coupons. I went shopping with my mom after I lost a good chunk of my weight and all of the department stores near me only go as far as a…
  • Also have your doctor test you ferritin along with your iron. Ferritin controls your bodies ability to absord and use iron effectively. A few years ago I had all the classic signs of anemia, but my iron was well within the normal range. Luckily I have a wonderful doctor who suggested we test the ferritin as well and sure…
  • @josette06 Thank you very much for your post, it is nice to that your coworkers father went into remission, my dad is around the same age (62). I have heard it has a high rate of returning but I am not really sure what factos come into play there. Do you mind if I ask if your coworkers father had a bone marrow transplant…
  • Thank you for your replies everyone, I really appreciate it. I will definitely be trying out some of your recipes and ideas. I am pretty confident I eat enough when I actually do eat, it just all happens in 1 or 2 large intakes. For example, yesterday I ate an entire pizza by myself in one sitting. Those are some of the…
  • https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10630582/the-poo-thread You may find this an interesting read :) It hasn't been active lately but you can always bring it back! ETA my brain is not all the way there and I missed the main point of your post. I have a very similar situation and I have been diagnosed with IBS…
  • So I just posted a novel thread of my own about my dad being in the hospital and it being quite serious. He confessed to us over the weekend when he was admitted that he hadn't been feeling well for a few weeks, extremely fatigued just walking to get the mail an very low appetite. He ignored those warnings and is now in…
  • Don't take it personally, there has been a lot of inappropriate flagging going on here lately. :)
  • Can I ask what may be an ignorant question about walking, forgive me if the answer is obvious. Does speed at which you walk not matter for total calories burned on a walk? For example, say I walk 3 miles at 2.5 miles an hour then the next day walk 3 miles at 4 miles per hour, based on that calculation those walks would…
  • Just as an announcement, Quest reformulated their protein shakes. I bought my usual cookies and cream flavor and I am very disappointed. You now get 6 less servings per container (used to be 28 servings now 22). My favorite part about the cookies and cream shake was that it had crunchy cookie bits in it but with the new…
  • So I have been trying to work up the courage to post in here for a while now and decided this month was it. The bottom picture was take last Friday (4/12/19) and the top was taken today (4/15/19) the day my period started. Same pose, same posture, same sized underwear! I just wanted to put it out there for all the women…
  • I have always been someone who needs breakfast, even before weight loss. It feels like there is a switch in my body that flips while I sleep and I wake up VERY hungry every morning, regardless of how much I ate or how late I ate the previous day. If I do not eat breakfast I start to feel weak and nauseous very quickly…
  • I searched "truvision products" and it looks like there are 2 they put together for weight loss trufix and trucontrol. Trufix claims to "tune up your blood chemistry" "boost metabolism" and "maintain liver function". First of all I don't even know what they mean by tune up blood chemistry? Like...what? major eye roll. As…
  • Supplements don't do anything for weight loss. Anything that claims to be a "fat burner" or "metabolism booster" is pretty much an overpriced caffeine pill. Some diet pills also contain an ingredient called "bitter orange" which has reports of perfectly healthy young people (20's and 30's) having a heart attack or stroke…
  • One time my husband were at a diner at some early hour(or late depending on how you think about it), something around 2am. Anyways our food came and I got french fries with my sandwich. I reached over and grabbed what I thought was salt and started shaking it on my fries. I thought about how odd the salt shaker was, why is…
  • I have done this, luckily I was a teenager living with my parents so my mistake was caught before it was too late. I was cutting up garlic when my mom came home and I started complaining about how it is going to take me forever to chop up 2 "cloves" of garlic because there are so many pieces. My mom got this look on her…
  • Yes I have definitely learned my lesson! This job was quite a few years ago, right after I graduated college so I didn't know any better lol. Looking back there were definitely signs before I fainted; I got constant calf cramps (MAJOR sign of low electrolytes) but I attributed that to walking up 8 flights of stairs several…
  • Yeah this. I have depleted my own electrolytes before and it was bad. It happened when I was working an an ICU unit of a hospital. It was winter so I was wearing sweaters and I had to wear a lab coat on top of that, then to top it all off the ICU was kept VERY warm to keep patients with poor circulation comfortable. II was…
  • ETA: Saw this one has been posted already, my bad! Enjoy it twice :)
  • Have you looked at the detour smart bars? They are about 130 calories for 10 grams of protein, not as good of a ratio as quest cereal bars but still decent. As far as size, they are not huge, but I didn't think the quest cereal bars were all that large to begin with so I would say size is relatively the same.…
