  • First be honest with yourself. I own a few hair salons and I go in on weekends to help my team by cleaning and prepping their stations between clients. After 6-8 hours of this, I'm worn out! Get a pedometer or a fitbit and see how many steps you are actually taking in a day! I bet you would be getting more than someone on…
  • Great job. You have a very beautiful face! Before and after! Keep up the great work and I love the Burpee Shirt!!!!!
  • I have a 16 and 13 year old. The schools give most of the students time to do homework in class, with the exception of the larger projects that can't be accomplished in the class room. My son is in AP classes and rarely has homework that he has to bring home and still maintains an A Average. My daughter is trending along…
  • Anyone but the patriots, please for the love of the game, anyone but the Patriots. So, I guess the Falcons.
  • Just think of it as perfecting your craft! The only time you fail is when you give up. Every time you start again, you are really just continuing the process. This is my 3,4,5...... This is not my first time, and you would think I would learn better. Maybe that is the lesson THIS time!
  • I wish I could say I had the same results as you. 7 months ago I was in a bad Motorcycle accident and spent 8 days in the hospital. I am still in pain, although bones are healed. Whenever I sit for more than 15 minutes it takes me a few steps to actually move freely even though I have a limp. I started to hit the gym a…
  • Survived Ft. Dix for a number of years while my father was a Drill Sargent there!
  • Not at all, I'm just glad you asked the question, because I was honestly thinking I was the only one! I really wish I wasn't angry all the time or mad about something or that people really irritated me so much. I really do like people and do what ever I can to try and make everyone happy. Everyone but me that is. I'm sure…

  • This, but since I'm getting paid to do it, I guess it's not time being wasted!
  • Great post, this hit home for me this morning. Thank you! You have made outstanding progress and should be so proud of your accomplishments. Good luck on future success and even the failures!
  • It sounds like she is putting you in a really bad position. Maybe rather than telling her what worked for you, refer her to the information you used to get results and let her do the same work you did. It might be that it hasn't "clicked" in her mind yet, but if you share your resources, she can read and learn to be…
  • I doubt it will help, but the calculations you are looking for have to be manually created and do not appear as a "Standard calculation" in excel. This is more of an accounting question than excel. You can look up profit and loss statement with Google and it should give you the formula for creating the results you are…
  • Your story really hit home for me. I would never have considered myself and alcoholic, but I sure looked forward to the weekend when I could open the liquor cabinet and escape. It was all I could think about on the weekends. Then in May of 2016 I was on an annual ride with my buddies when a Coyote jumped in front of me and…
  • I use the packets daily. I usually stick with plain water throughout the day, but at night I will mix in a little flavor. I get that you need some flavor in your liquid. Since it's now the weekend, maybe I'll try a little Whiskey in my water?
  • The accident happened on 5/16/2016. I was riding with some buddies in Southern Colorado when a Coyote jumped out in front of me. We were in such a remote location that 2 native americans that happened to be working on their cabin came over to see what was going on, then drove me to the Emergency room. From there they life…
  • Salt Lake City, UT, USA (For those that don't live in the USA) and looking to add to my collection of Wives!
  • Big Bang Theory Longmire Sons of Anarchy Stranger Things Anything Porn! Thanks for the list, looking for some new binge material!
  • 2016 is going down as one of my worst years. I almost died in May, I had my business broke into, I gained all my previous weight loss back, I was penalized for not filing taxes that I really had filed. I could go on and on, but I'm done with it all. I figure there are a few things I have control over and my weight and…
  • Sent FR. I'm in a similar situation, lost some weight on MFP. Gained a little back. Had a Coyote jump in front of my motorcycle in SW Colorado and life flighted to Pueblo for 8 day vacation. Lost the weight due to complication in Hospital and quickly gained it back. It's been a rollercoaster of a ride, but I'm back to…
  • Not sure exactly but the last time I quit was about 11 years ago. Ironically I was just thinking about it this morning. To those that are trying, just keep trying. I quit 4 times before I quit quitting. Best thing I ever did for myself. Especially if you are also battling a weight/health issue.
  • If you can't run, walk. If that is still causing pain, move to an elliptical machine that is much easier on the joints. I do both because of injuries that causes walking to be painful sometimes. If the elliptical is still causing problems, jump on a bike. If you don't have access to this equipment, then simply walking in…
  • Been there done that, doing it again. I'll send a friend request, but it would be great if we can keep this tread going to keep everyone who wants to succeed a place to share there achievements.
  • Congrats on the new job, sounds amazing. Love me some bluegrass! As others have mentioned, eat at a reduced rate even if it is quitting one thing at a time, like you mentioned caffine/soda. Do this for a few weeks, then one more thing. (Mine was sides like fries, chips, etc.. with lunch). You have a whole new life starting…
  • Outstanding accomplishment. I really appreciate your persistence as this is my current challenge! It's nice to know that the effort pays off!
  • Crunches will not make your stomach go flat, loosing fat will. So if that is the only goal you have, crunches are not your answer reducing your calorie intake is. There is a saying that six pack abs are not created in the gym, but in the kitchen. With that said, the more exercise you do, the faster the fat is reduced,…
  • Anything you do to move is helpful so don't think you have to conquer PX90 on the first try! Last night I used my daughter for my work out and we had fun. As she sat on the floor I would do curls to lift her up. Then she would make herself stiff as a board and I would push her feet up for some shoulder presses. Doing high…
  • I think I can empathize with you a bit. 6 months ago I was in a motorcycle accident that landed me in ICU for 8 days. I broke 5 ribs and my scapula (Shoulder) along with multiple internal injuries. Needless to say it's been a slow recovery. My shoulder still hurts when I left, but I have the luxury of working with some…
  • My only advice to you, is to never give up. This is my 3rd time back to MFP and I'm sure it's not my last. Each time has worked as long as I have the desire and want. If this time works for you, then you're better than most, but if it doesn't, don't go away. Reassess why you got her in the first place. Good luck on your…
  • First look at what got you where you are. "Major Life Changes". Start small as mentioned, you are not going to turn things around as fast as they fell apart, so small steps along the way will get you through the journey! Have you ever noticed that "Major Life Changes" are always for the worst? (Unless you win the lottery).…
  • I don't know if I would be considered clinically depressed, but this year has been one challenge or battle after the other. If Karma is real, next year should be awesome! Needless to say I find myself severely depressed and not knowing how to get out of it. I want to just curl up and wish the world away. However with all…
