  • Maybe what he's doing is working for him, and that's great! It bothered me that he acted like this was something I 'had' to do...he may not have said "you have to do this", but he was pushing his shake on me haha. Then he couldn't explain WHY I should have a protein shake first thing in the morning, that REALLY bothered…
  • Completely agree. If it hadn't been for mfpers giving me advice on my food diary, I might never have realized that I wasn't eating NEAR enough protein! I ranted because I was worried about my friend, and because he phrased his advice to me as a 'you must do this', which made me frustrated. Thank you for listening :)
  • Agree! Yeah, he was trying to be all sweet and helpful :) I'm over it, it was just a moment of frustration. Thanks for letting me rant mfp :flowerforyou:
  • Yeah, this is totally what I'm getting at. It bothers me that people with different goals and no health background other than what works for them give advice as a DEFINITE, i.e. "you MUST do 'x' if you EVER want to lose weight", "you NEED to cut/add 'x' to/from your diet", "you HAVE to exercise 'x' way if you want 'y'…
  • Haw haw!! :laugh:
  • Agree! I'm 5' 5" 130lbs, 34-27-37. I HATE HATE HATE my build...very long torso, and big fat short stubby thighs (21inches around, eew) and unfortunately no amount of exercise can change my genetics :/
  • I'd just like to say that, from personal experience and in my non-specialist opinion, one should take a moment to consider the 'downsides' of high protein diets before diving in :) I'm referring mostly to: - constipation: a legitimately uncomfortable, awful and sometimes serious medical issue that can result from a…
  • I can't see your food diary, but I hope you're still drinking plenty of water! Not to discredit your awesome results which are awesome :D, water can account for lots of sudden weight loss. So please drink enough :)
  • Haha amen! Those ppl have obviously never had roommates :D This info is great btw, thank you! I'm at an office job now, but in about a month I go back to my job as a performer which involves quite a bit of physical activity. I'll make my activity level 'active' at that time. Thanks!
  • It doesn't require low calories, but the rules are that we follow what's set on MFP, and for each day we go over our calorie goal it costs $1 and the person who sticks to their goal wins the pot. I know it's possible to change the calorie goals, but the challenge is only through the end of March. After that I will have to…
  • Today I was supposed to go out with friends for dinner, so I tried to eat carefully all day and exercised to make up for the calories I anticipated eating. AND THEN I GOT STOOD UP, and was starving, and had a lonely-*kitten* meal at Chik Fil A. Sigh. Go ahead and judge :P Also, I am going home this weekend to celebrate my…
  • Thank you everyone for the great suggestions! amberlangelon: I will be upping my protein...switched to 40/30/30 and will see if that helps. I can't alter my calories yet because I'm doing a fitness challenge, the rules of which do not allow me to change my intake. But that's over in March :D JGCooper: SRSLY!!!! I don't…
  • Thank you diver71_au, Cherylkirby, and the rest! I'll think on your advice :)
  • Thank you :) Now I know what anemia is, and I probably don't have that. Well, in retrospect, this was a bad idea. Poor choice of topic, but the first topic I posted it under was apparently too boring to generate ANY responses. Did I say "everyone stop giving me advice"? My bad! What I meant to say was: Guess that came out…
  • I'm going to use some blanket statements b/c I don't have time today to answer individual posts. If you get offended, I'm sorry, please know that's not my intent. Can't please everyone. For those of you giving constructive criticism and advice relating to my question, thank you very much! :heart: Your posts have made me…
  • Sorry!!!!! I guess I don't know the definition of 'anemia'. I'll go look it up. Thought I was referring to an overall feeling of exhaustion, faintness, weakness, inability to function. I'll find a better word.
  • Wow! Well that would explain a lot! Thank you very much for this advice. I can't get tested right now (no health insurance), but will make the changes I can and keep this in mind if/when I see a doctor again! This is especially important because--something else I didn't mention in earlier posts--my summer job is very…
  • I agree with this :) I will not cut out junk entirely (I <3 SUGARS) but will continue to be moderate about my choices. Thank you!
  • Thank you 1a1a! It has been suggested to me that I eat my exercise calories back in protein. I will likely try that. I will keep some cookies...at least for now...<3 So hard to give them up!! But I can scale back on sugars. I see in your food diary for Nov. (I looked around the 8th) milk!! I wonder if drinking some 2% with…
  • Thanks piyubole! I will 'carefully' up my protein :D and I do take a vitamin supplement as well, on top of eating lots of leafy greens and other iron-rich foods! Thanks freogirl77! I avoid eggs usually because of...well, let's say they 'cause unpleasant odors' :D but my coworkers will just have to suffer! Hahaha! Thanks…
  • beach_chelle, thank you for responding. I am not technically trying to lose ANY weight, I'm here on mfp participating in a fitness challenge with some family members :smile: I am 130lbs, 5' 5" (or 5' 4.5" as my sister would argue :P) and at a healthy bmi. My goal is to get into a workout routine and motivate my family. I…
  • I also hate running, but am trying to gain more endurance so am doing it anyway :) I love to walk, so I started that first. Then I swallowed my self-consciousness and went to the gym and learned how to use the treadmill. Once I figured that out, began alternating walking outside and on the treadmill. Now I'm walking…
  • Totally. You know what's great for that? When you feel that way, say: "F*** it, tomorrow I'm going to eat some CRAP!!!" (If you put it off until the next day, you can plan your binge haha) Yesterday I was on the rag (yeah yeah TMI), plus I have stuck to my calorie goals for almost a month, AND my birthday's coming up. So I…
  • Let me know if you can't finish that.
  • THIS. Right there with you today. I'm one of those losers who doesn't pay attention to my cycle until a - I realize I'm being a raving b**** for no reason; b - I feel alternately fat/thin because my body bloats and shrinks like 3 inches every couple hours; or c - For a day or two I get this crazy "F*** This!" attitude and…
  • I'd use Livestrong.com to find calories in various foods. It's been around longer than mfp I think, so has more foods and is generally more accurate. If you make an account there, you can also calculate how many calories you burn exercising based on your body weight. This is a convenient feature for those of us who can't…
