  • It depends. I generally ate back most of them when I was losing weight because I had a hrm and felt it was rather accurate. Also I was losing so I didn't see any reason to not eat them back. My calories were set at like 1400 and I would exercise around 600 cals a day. If I didn't eat any of them back I would have been…
  • While I am sure there are a lot of people on here who will disagree with me, I firmly believe that weight gain/loss with pregnancy and post partum do not work the same way as weight gain/loss in general. There are so many extra hormones at play that the standard expend more calories than you consume idea doesn't always…
  • my cutie baby
  • Part of it is genetics. I am a pear shape, but when you weigh 250 everything is big and when I lost weight in 1999 I had loose skin on my tummy. I had 6 pack abs at that point in time, well you could only see the top four as the bottom two were hidden from view by the loose skin. I kept the weight off and continued to…
  • My pelvis has been bugging me for a long time, but really started being annoying on the 15th... I got my steps 3 days exercise 4 days water 5 days veggies 5 days
  • Water - 5 days (one day I was short by 10oz, Sunday i was short by 26) exercise- 6 days veggies- 3 days I got 2 3 days I got 3. Which is weird cuz I swear I've had salad a lot recently... steps- 6 days (Sunday I was in bed til 3pm and only got like 400 steps total)
  • Not meeting your goal by 500 or more, meaning you are at 700 or less? Is that including exercise calories or you really are consuming less than 700 cals total? Just curious as your diary isn't open and it isn't clear to me. And it is relevant. Either way it doesn't sound like enough calories for healthy sustained weight…
  • I'm 5'5" and my lowest weight was 150. I had six pack abs and wore a size six (and it wasn't tight). I don't know my BF%, but based on the amount of muscle I had I'm guessing it was decent. I think a lot of it depends on how you are built and what kind of exercises you do. Once I have my baby getting back down to 150s is…
  • [/quote] "They do it for the pure fact that its self destructive and apparently feels good." [/quote] I don't think people consciously think about it being self destructive. Like the walking example someone else gave I can relate to. I don't like getting blisters to be self destructive, and people don't run to the point of…
  • I'd guess that to really put on more muscle you will likely weigh more and possibly feel "fat". Your BMI (which I realize is a flawed system) is 17.7, anything under 18.5 is considered under weight. While female athletes do often have very low BMI and are muscular it's pretty difficult to do (they have trainers and doctors…
  • I tried graze and wasn't impressed. One thing they don't make clear is they make sure the boxes are "balanced" so if you dislike too many things you get a warning that they might not be able to send you box. So if you have allergies or avoid certain food it can cause issues. i'm guessing it's because they don't want to…
  • I think it depends on the person and their fitness level. When I first started my weight loss journey I only exercised. And it was for 5-10 minutes a day and I lost weight. As I continued and the weight loss slowed down I began to modify my eating as well. It all boils down to calorie deficit, but it seems to me it's…
  • For week 5 water- 5 days. the other days I only drank about 6 glasses, it's hard to like water when I don't feel well... exercise- all 7 days! steps- 6 days (I wasn't feeling well one day) veggies- we'll say 6 days. 2 days had questionable veggie choices...
  • For week 4 I got my steps 4 days (was sick one day) I got my exercise 5 days Water 4 days Veggies 4 days. This week I am going to try harder!
  • Mine is right next to a hotel (which is next to the river) and across from a closed car dealership. There is a drive thru coffee place and a strip mall (with a Mexican restaurant I think, but you only see the sign not it) diagonally across the corner. A few blocks down is a KFC and right after that Safeway and a bunch of…
  • Yeah, the veggies are proving to be much more of a challenge, than I had thought they would be!
  • I think the reason we don't understand the question is weight doesn't really have anything to do with calories/g protein or fat or calories. And different foods have different serving sizes. Like broccoli should be about 3 oz (well according to the package of frozen broccoli I have), chicken is 4 oz and rice is half or…
  • They *could* be it depends on your height, body type etc. I am 5'5" and haven't ever weighed less than 150 as an adult. At that time I was exercising a lot, eating really well, wore a size 6 (could have fit into a 4, but I don't like snug clothing) and I had six pack abs. If you look at BMI charts they say I should weigh…
  • I haven't been doing well. I've been eating salad sometimes and one day I had soup. Baby carrots as snacks... Don't know if i had any today. maybe I'll have a veggie snack later.
    in veggies? Comment by Le_Joy January 2014
  • Got all my steps done while running errands today. I parked far away from the stores so I did stretching for my 10 minutes exercise. I need to stretch more!!!
  • true.
  • I think we might repeat week two because cutie baby and I have been huge fatty slackers this week...
  • Thur I didn't quite get my water goal and today I won't get my steps, exercise, or veggies. Not the best start to this week!
  • I would check with your physiotherapist. I also have hypermobility and know there are many different forms and that very few people (including healthcare professionals) have much experience/education about some of the types. I know that everyone knows medical advice from strangers on a website isn't a good idea, but…
  • Aside from not being fried I'm not picky about what you count as veggies. I counted pasta sauce yesterday even though tomatoes are technically a fruit... In future weeks I will specify types of veggies to try to increase as I have noticed for me personally carrots, corn, & potatoes are easier to add in than dark green…
  • It's nice to see more people have found this group. Hope you are all doing well this week. I went on a mile walk yesterday so I got my exercise and steps in. Also managed to eat just over 3 servings of veggies (good thing there were green beans and corn at the new years lunch at the in-laws or I might not have gotten 3…
  • I hate her. I hate her so much. BUT I really do like 30 day shred. I just made my own soundtrack to play with the dvd on mute once I watched each section because I couldn't stand to hear her ramble. The thing I liked about it is you can make it harder or easier depending on where you are at physically. Just don't follow…
  • How much comes in the box? It is like an oz of each item or does it seem to vary? ETA: I found reviews online it seems like each item is about an ounce.
  • Hopefully that is the sofa one. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
  • I wonder if it varies by brand. I rinsed mine and dry fried them, like many people on MFP suggest, and the smell was fine, but the texture was awful. I couldn't eat it. They were chewy and rubbery...
