  • You, like everybody else, will be there to improve yourself. I had horrible anxiety about going to classes but once I got there I realized that there was not a single person there, other than the instructor, paying attention to me. It didn't matter if I couldn't go as fast as others or do a full push up. The instructor…
  • On those days I eat more than usual and I'm way more emotional than usual and I take my butt to the gym and I "leave it on the mat" (metaphorically speaking).
  • The average American diet as is contains too much added sugar and too many over processed carbs. So, yeah, it's not the devil, but moderation is definitely key.
  • I have a flex, it only tracks my steps really. It gives me a calorie burn but I'm not 100% sure how it comes up with that. I'd love to upgrade to a charge HR but haven't yet.
  • Hi, I don't have PCOS but I do have insulin resistance and some unbalanced hormones which causes a lot of PCOS like problems. I've also found a keto diet to be pretty much the only way I can lose weight. I can devote myself to 100% on work outs and a healthy diet but if I'm eating too many carbs it's like none of it…
  • Hi, I'm new the group. I've been doing low carb, high fat for a couple months after my doctor told me that was the only way he thought I'd lose weight (hormone issues, insulin resistance). Feel free to add me, I always need friends and support.
  • Keto here too, feel free to add me!
  • I've had a flex for a few months now. It seems to track my steps whether I'm swinging my arms or not. I do kickboxing 3 times a week and I haven't quite figured out what to do with it then yet. I've been taking it off but manually tracking the workout in the fitbit app. Overall, I like it as a little tracker.
  • I got a fitbit flex for Christmas and I like it so far. I had a body media monitor that I got about 5 years ago (or so). In my opinion it was a little more accurate with some things but I had to wear it on my arm and, for me, it was bulky so I didn't really wear it all that much. Fitbit just came out with a monitor that…
  • I was planning on doing a W30 after the holidays, so I'm in!
  • Let's see, we keep (in no certain order): - Raw veggies, all kinds, we snack on them and my daughter takes them to school for lunch - Some fruit - Raw natural nuts, almonds, walnuts and seeds - Coconut milk, canned - Spices of all kinds - Cheese, I don't eat much but my daughter takes it to school for lunch - Tea - Olive…
  • I'm constantly hungry during my t.o.m. That's one of my main signs it's coming.
  • I like my eyes and I like my hair (as much as I say I hate it). I like my positive attitude ... and the fact that most people don't catch my sarcasm ..... And I like my boobs, even though I say they're too big.
  • My daughter's first ped told us to not use Johnson's and Johnson's. For pedialyte, I always grabbed the clear unflavored one, I'm sure it's not too much better. Now I would definitely start with some coconut water and go from there.
  • I've never eaten sandwiches with tomato soup (apparently I'm really weird) but tomato soup sounds soooo good.
  • I was worried about this when I first started eating a Paleo diet. My fiance was all about bread, etc. My step daughter is also a vegetarian who pretty much only eats cheese and bread so at first I actually held off on eating Paleo because she was with us for the summer and I was just worried about doing it alone. Then I…
  • I had an off track weekend too, although now that I'm thinking about it, I realize it wasn't that bad. I ate a mushroom quesadilla from a Mexican place and had some pizza (I was at my parents cleaning and they wanted to feed us, it was thin crust at least?).
  • I have some raw coconut flakes, I hadn't thought about roasting them. Good idea, thank you!
  • Ah, I will keep that in mind. Thank you!
  • The closest stores to me are a Kroger and an International Farmers Market. I shop at both, but usually get my produce and fish from the Farmer's Market. They have a larger selection of stuff and tend to be cheaper on most things than Kroger. We also have a Whole Foods, Fresh Market and Easy Way ... all of which are farther…
  • They do have a 90% that I've seen before. I'm not really into chocolate though. I used to be before I started the whole Paleo thing but now I could almost care less. I tried a dark chocolate peanut butter cup a few days ago and just was not happy with it at all. I was asking for my fiance, who really doesn't eat many…
  • Thanks for all the suggestions! I don't really snack anymore either, however my darling fiance just recently started Paleo eating with me and he's been complaining that "we don't have anything" which isn't true, I think he just gets bored at home during the day and starts looking for something fast to eat. We keep nuts…
  • I have a 1st grader as well. Lucky for me she loves veggies like broccoli. Some days I'll cut up some broccoli, carrots, celery and get those little cherry tomatoes for her lunch (basically like taking a veggie tray) and I'll include some ranch to dip with. She doesn't like bread anyway, unless it's a breadstick from a…
  • The only thing I really have to avoid is dairy. So if I'm eating out I will emphasize, no cheese. I don't order anything that has to be made with milk (or I ask if I'm not sure). But otherwise I'll go with a bunless sandwich/burger, a salad with grilled meat or some other meat and veggies combo. Honestly though, I only…
  • This is an awesome, informative thread. Thank you! I'm fairly new to this in hopes that it might help me get my hormonal issues under control.
  • Mine shrank a little (like from DD to D) and I wasn't upset with that. I think they're too big, my fiance disagrees.
  • As a beginning note: I have not been officially diagnosed with PCOS, although I exhibit a lot of the symptoms. I complained to my doctor, he gave me a medicine for the excess hair but ignored everything else, didn't even actually look for PCOS (although his nurse told me I had it). That being said, when I first started…
  • You're doing it wrong. Everyone knows you should poop M&M's, not skittles.
