  • 40 for the next few months. 260lbs (How did that happen?!) I have been off of exercise for months and months. Just got out of the routine. I started a swimming program, only to break my foot a month in. I'm supposed to be in a cast for at least 2 months, which is almost over, then back to swimming. I have a book with…
  • No? OK.
  • I'd ask them why do they care what you eat and let them answer for themselves. If it's not interfering with the way they have to cook to be around you, then it should be no problem at all. I'd follow it up with, "I don't have a problem with the way you eat, so I don't understand why you have a problem with mine." Put it…
  • About 10 years ago I lost about 40 lbs and had loose skin around my stomach. I weighed 140lbs, was a size 4, but could grab a handful of stomach skin. I heard that from dieting so much, going up and down many times, really impacts the elasticity of your skin. Mine did not shrink up over time. I became so discouraged by my…

  • For dark skin, I would check out a few places and ask to see the books of their different tattoos. Guaranteed there will be black guys in there to give you and idea as to how it might look on you. While you're there, if you have a pic of what you want - bring it and get an estimate. Keep track of these! My only tattoo ...…

  • Uummm I don't know my perceived rate of exertion. *hangs head* I'm never out of breath and usually the summary of my heart rate totals are like 118 - 135, for example. But my breathing can get very heavy, but I could still talk. Unfortunately I only have videos to work from at the moment and all I can really do is make the…
  • I'm using one with the cloth strap and the hard plastic snap in the front. It suggested tightening it and I did. I just checked out the gel, it doesn't look to expensive. I'll look around at some some local athletic stores to see if they carry it. Thank you!
  • Anything by The Flying Conchords.
  • The entire Alice in Chains album "Black Gives Way to Blue" makes me happy in a melancholy way. I'm not big on "happy" songs, cuz they're usually pop songs, which aren't particularly my favorite. :glasses: A song that makes me *happy *happy* would have to be Jefferson Starship's "Jane".
  • Thanks all!
  • The pizza was just an example. I didn't eat any pizza...lol I just want to know how long it takes for the body to register calories once consumed.
  • I tend to work out 6-7 days a week doing various cardio, and weights 2 - 3 times a week with a rest day (just cardio) beween them. If I feel like I need a break, I take one.
  • As soon as I stop the jumping, the pain stops. It's like I have bricks in my calves all of the sudden and I Just.Can't.Do.It. Now that I think about it, I have been able to do the jumping, but NOT right after jumping jacks like on 30DS. I think it just might be some sort of overload after the jacks. And I definitely can't…
  • Nyuck Nyuck Nyuck!
  • I like this idea. Thank you.
  • Oatmeal with splenda, salt and cinnamon.
  • I'm actually wearing a full suit, Kinda like a leotard over my workout capris - 80's style. Now I just need some leg warmers! lol
  • I guess I'm the only one whose belly jiggles while I workout!
  • People can burn up to 20% more body fat by exercising in the morning on an empty stomach, according to new research from Northumbria University. "In order to lose body fat we need to use more fat than we consume. Exercise increases the total amount of energy we expend and a greater proportion of this energy comes from…
  • I just can't help myself here: It's "LOSE" not "LOOSE". Just a pet peeve. Ignore me.
  • Klonopin.

  • I had an armband for my iPod that I could change songs with on my arm. I had no pockets. Where are people putting their phones? lol
  • This cannot be reiterated enough.
  • Is this the same as being gluten free?
  • "For instance, if your primary goal is to increase your aerobic endurance or lose body fat, then you should perform cardio first. If your primary goal is to increase muscular strength, then do strength training first. To get the most out of your workout, perform the exercise that is most important to your goals first, when…
  • For a quick fix (aka too lazy to get my ipod and pick something out. I have 10k tracks on the damn thing.) I listen to a classic rock station that includes early 90's as classic rock. So I'll get some Beatles, Kinks, Eagles, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, and Soundgarden (not in that order) in an afternoon. But they never…
