  • Try a kettlebell workout. Run another 10K race in the next few months. Run a half marathon next year.
  • My biggest challenge lately is starting my day with the right attitude. For the last few months I wake up and say, "Eh, whatever. Tomorrow." and proceed to not track anything all day. I need to be mentally on track first thing if I will have any hope of making it through the day. Just measuring the number of tablespoons in…
  • People only keep acting a certain way if they are getting something from it. She sure gets a lot of your attention and reassurance by making your weight loss all about her... Maybe stop feeding into to her negativity for a while and see what happens. Change the subject or walk out of the room. I think it will just take…
  • It seems like they have the start times set like that so they can award the 1st place finishes all at the same time, at 10:30. Having the walkers start first would give them enough time to get to the finish at the same time as the 10K and 5K runners. Maybe they need to get those awards out right away because of the musical…
  • I was cleaning the bathroom and my 3 year old daughter walked in and started giggling when she saw me scrubbing the toilet with the toilet brush. She asked, "Mommy, are you tickling the potty? Is that the tickler?!" It was so funny. Other good one's, also from when she was 3 (funny age!); we were pulling into the library…
  • Use just a little bleach to kill the bacteria and deodorize your workout clothes. Dilute 1/4 cup bleach in 2 cups of water and add that to the washer for a full load. Use less for smaller loads. I usually let the washer completely fill with water before I add the diluted bleach (top loader). It won't bleach your clothes or…
  • I went from the womens gel kayanos to the womens gel evolution for the same reason- needed more arch support. I did dance and pointe ballet for 12 years and have high arches. I am currently 175 (5'5") and run around 20 miles a week on the treadmill, pavement and foothills trails. I tried on a lot of shoes at the running…
  • Wow, that is some fantastic progress!!! Definitely a success story!
  • That's great! The scale doesn't seem to accurately reflect how things are shrinking and shifting in my experience. I know exactly what a NSV it is to pull something out of the closet and just wear it, so way to go!
  • Wrap some chopped up potatoes, peppers, onions, mushrooms in foil with a little olive oil and salt and pepper and toss them in them on the coals in your fire. Wrap up salmon fillets with onion and lemon slices with a little smear of butter, salt and pepper in foil and toss those on too.
  • I just ordered all my daughters birthday stuff from birthdaydirect.com. She really wanted a ballerina birthday but I couldn't find anything ballerina at the party stores where I live. All the websites stuff was cheaper than walmart and they offered free shipping on orders over $40, so I got all the supplies for my annual…
  • Fauxtato Salad! Use any potato salad recipe that sounds good to you and replace the boiled potatoes with boiled cauliflower. I just made it this week, and it was so delicious. I followed a classic style recipe with yellow mustard, mayo, celery and hard boiled eggs, but I also added some bacon pieces and chives. I replaced…
  • Umm, wow! You look about 19 now!!!
  • I can't wait to try this! Thank you!
  • So gonna make this!!!
  • I never gained any weight on Mirena, and have had no trouble losing weight (I joined MFP about a year after getting the IUD implanted). The hormone dose it slowly emits is so low, I don't think it is likely to cause significant gain weight. Eating more calories than you burn is the only thing that makes you gain weight.…
  • All you need to lose weight: A food scale so you can weigh everything before you eat it. Measuring cups and spoons so you can measure out everything before you eat it. The willingness to log all those things you weighed, measured, and ate in your food diary. To use your food diary to meet your calorie goal every day. And…
    in Which Diet? Comment by codapea June 2013
  • You are beautiful and I am so happy for you! Every single day you have shown your amazing (shall I say Spock-like, lol?) ability to maintain a balanced focus on nutrition, and it is impressive. Thank you for sharing your story. You are an inspiration to me! *hugs*
  • I just put my 12 oz. of coffee in the blender with 1 tb. extra virgin organic coconut oil, 1 tb. organic unsalted butter and blend on high until it looks creamy. It is so amazing! Anyone who hasn't tried it blended needs to! I used to put heavy whipping cream in my bulletproof coffee before I started making it in the…
  • Wow, some really good and useful info. Glad I clicked on this thread, great links!
  • I would hold off on the protein powder and coconut milk until after induction. Egg beaters are fine, I've used them in induction. Also, in the book it says that nuts are not okay on induction but the main reason is that it starts a craving in many people (myself included) and they can be hard to stop eating once you start.…
  • I have checked them all out from the library and the one I liked the best and ended up buying is "Dr. Atkin's New Diet Revolution". I just found it to be the simplest to follow, low carb is explained well, and the actual diet in this book I have had the best results with. This book is from before all the Atkin's bars and…
  • You just regained some water weight. If you are back to low carbing, those pounds will be gone in a few days. No biggie. Just know that anytime you go back to eating a high carb food there will always be a water weight gain because something like rice is quickly turned to glucose. Glucose is stored in your muscle with…
    in help please? Comment by codapea May 2013
  • Any sort of liquid egg whites in a carton. They all taste like sulfur and ash to me! What are they feeding those chickens?! The eggs at walmart also taste like that to me. Does anyone else taste that horrible sulfurous ashtray flavor in cheap eggs and drink carton egg whites? .
  • WOE is "way of eating". Fruit is not allowed on induction. Berries are the only kind of fruit you can have after induction, and then in moderation. If you log your food everyday it will be a lot easier to make sure you stay under 25 carbs during your induction phase. You should also track sugar and fiber. Atkins is about a…
  • You don't have to give up your morning latte! If you are making it at home, try it with unsweetened almond milk. It you are ordering at a coffee shop, get an americano and add a little heavy cream of if they don't have that use half and half. To OP, the best advise is when you are first starting out, don't deprive yourself…
  • Get Lucky!!! Obsessed with that song right now, I can't believe I forgot it!
