  • Timmy Hoho's as we call it is the reason I need to exercise.... Damn those delicious iced capps!
  • oh god you guys. I felt so good reading your replies. They made me laugh. Thanks for the support. To the question of why I don't like to exercise is because I am asthmatic and whenever I start to get my heart rate up it feels the same as when I have an asthma attack....oh ya and also I hate my belly getting in the way my…
  • Have you seen my wagon? I seem to have fallen off.... I began last February and lost 35 pounds. I went into the summer feeling good thinking ...."It's going to be even easier to be active in the summer"... boy was I wrong. First off, work got busy and took over my life for 2 months. I was too exhausted to exercise and of…
  • Asthma is definitely the trigger - however anxiety occurs when I'm having an asthma attack for sure.
  • I have a really bad cold and I'm just wondering about exercising when you are sick - does it make you worse or help keep your energy up. I spent the first two days in bed for sure, but I'm still really stuffed up and feeling icky :grumble: I'm wondering if a workout might help. My default, of course, is to NOT workout,…
  • Okay guys - here's my review - I had my first Kundalini yoga class today and it was definitely different. Lots of breathing and some chanting (which I thought was weird at first, but I was trying to be open minded - I'm not religious at all but I do consider myself spiritual so I went with it.) I came out feeling relaxed…
  • thanks for the definitions it really helped. I've decided to try Kundalini as the breathing is appealing with being asthmatic. My first class is Sunday and I'll post back on how it goes. Thanks for the info!
  • :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: That is amazing - way to go.... treat yourself when these milestones happen with a pedicure, or a new top or just a long soak in the tub with some chillax'n music.... you deserve it!!!
  • that's when you want to reply: "uhm, yes, but he fell overboard... I can't talk about it, it's just too painful". Seriously though, I always find I can think of things to say after the fact but usually in the moment I am so gobsmacked by the person's thoughtlessness that I am blankfaced! Quelque Vache!
  • i'm in!!! Where do I get it? PB is my greatest weakness :love:
  • I just hope I can remember it next time.... sometimes the urge just takes over though...
  • :love: Why? Because I actually took the time to plan it!!! This is a first!! Waaah.. I was having a craving and was really agitated -- it started 2 nights ago. Ate well today but conservatively, worked out and have plenty of room left.... and let me tell you it never tasted so good knowing I did but also that I could guilt…
  • :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
  • On the days I exercise (45 minutes to 1 hour on elliptical & 1/2 hour of weights) I definitely don't eat all my calories, but on days I don't work out I do.... I've heard tell you should never drop below 1200 calories per day... not sure how true that is....
  • Ack! I can't believe Parvati won...I was so upset... well, I wanted to eat something. I gotta stop watching that show, but my kids love it. The most deserving person never wins!!
  • After I read your post I went back through my logs and sure enough, my carbs have been slowly creeping up, even though i've been staying in my range for calories... I'm definitely going to try cutting out breads/pasta and rice for a bit. and see what happens. 47 lbs is amazing! :drinker: way to go! I"m still not sure what…
  • I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for when you plateau.... I'm stuck at 210 having lost 25 pounds and it's been 3 weeks. I am hungrier than ever before and not sure what is going on. I'm mentally in the game, but just so hungry all the time. I have tried to listen to my body and if it's hungry, then eat but make good…
  • I've tried not eating before a work out and it was a BIG mistake... I totally hit the wall and ran out of energy. On the advice of a friend, I know generally have yogourt and fruit before a workout - about an hour ahead and it works well.
  • Congrats mel!! Way to go... I've hit a plateau at 210 and your post is very encouraging!!!! :flowerforyou: :drinker:
  • First off - stop beating yourself up over it.... that just leads to more discouragement and more eating and we have all been there. We are human - look forward and be positive - you are a great person and don't deserve that kind of criticism. Sit down quietly and reflect on what led up to it. Maybe there was something that…
  • You gotta laugh... otherwise you'll go crazy!!!! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
  • My husband asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day - usually my boys usually make me breakfast in bed but I said what I would like this year was to go to the gym and come home to the housework done!!!! No presents, no flowers, just a bit of peace of mind.... Here is my best mother's day story to inspire all you moms out…
  • I had a dog whose mother was a purebred springer spaniel and father was a black lab. The whole litter was such an amazing group of dogs that we named it a new breed - a SPLAB!!! They come out larger than a spaniel but smaller than a lab. A really nice medium sized dog with an excellent temperment. She lived to be 15 and…
  • Dear MFP et al: This is the hardest thing I have ever done that doesn't involve someone dying on you. There are times when i feel like I'm alone in this. And I come here and you are always here for me. Your line is never busy.... your never away on holidays and you don't charge by the hour to listen. I feel thankful…
  • Tap your anger!!! :mad: Use that to motivate you.... just wait until he sees you with your new body. Everyone is different as to what motivates them, but as long as it gets you off the couch and out of the fridge go for it!! Sometimes sitting in a quiet place and reflecting on why you want to do it and visualizing yourself…
  • bumpity bump!! Thank you Edyta... This site is great!!!
  • I'd love to find a website that offers a range of different exercises for each muscle group and you can pick and choose to mix it up to make a whole workout.
  • Mine's going down too... but not fully... I still feel like I could pull out a kangaroo if I needed too :laugh:
  • Does your size matter? I mean, if I bend over, my belly meets my thighs pretty quickly at this point!
