  • I really like Mary Kay, I have a few customers that have problem skin and we try to match them up with what works best for them. You can try out all the different foundations for free and see what you like, if something doesn't work for you we have a 100% money back guaranty . Oh yea and Mary Kay will show you how to do…
  • Do you have an Aldi around where you live? They have lots of veggies for great prices. I love their frozen chicken breasts, I think 2.5 pounds for $5.45 and I love their stir fry....My husband has problems chewing too so I just cook stuff a little longer. I also stock up on meat sales at Kroger, I love their pork loin, I…
  • Personally I don't care what my server thinks of me, no matter what I order, if they give me bad service I just don't tip. I also don't have a problem with talking to the manger about lousy service. If big people would not go out to eat anymore servers and weighters wouldn't make much money. Remember never to bite the hand…
  • I have been on lot's of diets, for me they don't work. I lose a lot, get back to eating regular, gain everything back and then some. I am NOT on a diet! I eat healthy, move more then bevore and am shrinking slowly but surly away:bigsmile: Put all your information in MFP , track your exercise and enjoy the ride. Eat as much…
  • My guess would be, you're getting dehydrated. I know it sounds wrong, but the less you drink the more water the body stores and the more you drink, the more you get rid of all the water and toxins in your body. I retain water in my legs and hands, sometimes it get's really bad when the heat is up. A couple of things to try…
  • I think it depends on what you want, for just losing weight I don't think it makes a big difference, but if you want to feel great, have lot's of energy and stay healthy I think it is important to eat well. I don't believe in just eating one thing, I do believe we need a balanced diet with complex carbs, lean meats, good…
  • I only count extra housework or things I don't do every day as my exercises. For instance if I mop my laminate flooring( 700 sq feet) I time myself, then half my time and eat those exercise calories. Going for a walk or going to the store once a week , I half my time and use it. Anything I do every day I don't count and I…
  • There are lots of cookbooks and recepies online where you can make healthier snacks with your kids.They are learning what healthy eating is all about and they will learn how to cook and some math too. It is not about never eating a cookie again, it is about not putting nutriciously unhealthy foods in our body. My husband…
  • Hello Andrea:flowerforyou: Mine wasn't much better and I'm in Ohio, my Wii didn't want to work, I had to swich long distance companies, the weather hurt my joints and made me hurt, and it went downhill from that:sad: but you know what? Tomorrow were going to get another brand new day and it is up to us to make it count.…
  • 3652 + 26 =3678 lost YAY
  • Why in the world would you want to be in starvation mode? :noway: Starvation mode is a very negative thing, your metabolism slowes down to a crawl, you lose more muscle then fat , your organs can be affected if you keep it up and your hair falls out.. The idea on this web site is to lose weight slowly, in a healthy way.…
  • OK here are some things you might have misunderstood I never suggested she should NOT take her medicine, all I sugested was that there are other things out there that might have the same benefits as what she is taking now, with less side affects! Herbal remedies have been around for hundreds of years( both in Europe and in…
  • Thank you I really needet that:bigsmile:
  • Here is my opinion on the subject. I have been living with depression for most of my life, it started in puberty and flaired up throughout the years.I know it can be very disabeling and I don't treat it as a " just get over it already "desease I have been on anti depressants a couple of times< but I am not a big pill taker…
  • I think youre not eating enough:noway: Here is a tread that made me understand the combination of losing weight and why low cal might not be the answer http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/3047-700-calories-a-day-and-not-losing I compare my body to an engine, if you only put in 2 gal of fuel you're not going to far with…
  • Another thing you might like to track is your sodium intake. I can lose 5 pounds in a day just water weight after eating at a restaurant or if I splurge high sodium foods. Time of month might also be another coulpid. And last but not least your metabolism might need a couple of weeks to adjust to your new lifestyle
  • Ok so lets see MFP gives you 1800 to lose 1 pound a week and you exercise 1000 cal a day away 1800 -1000= 800 net calories a day to breathe, digest , pump blood, make blood, inhale contract muscles,,, are you getting the idea?Your body holds on to everything it can get. You need to spread out your calories during the day,…
  • Here are some things that helped me understand about losing weight the healthy way. Fri 08/29/08 02:18 PMhttp://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/6556-the-answers-to-the-questions ~~~~~~~~~ Banks two threads "Newbies" and "Newbies 2nd edition" http://www.myfitnesspal.com/post/new/9614-newbies-please-read-me…
  • I think if you show her all the success stories on here that might help or the post by Banks about eating 700 calories a day and not losing, but in the end ,she is the one who has to make the final decision. There are lost of misconseptions about weight loss and it has been drilled into our head for such a long time that…
  • Ok maybe this will help. In order to lose 1 pound you will have to eat 3500 calories less then what your body needs. So MFP calculated that your body needs 2540 cal. a day to pump blood, digest, breathe and so on. You want to lose 2 pounds a week that's 7000 cal you need to save, 2540- 1000= 1540 cal a day. Now if you want…
  • That is the idea, your body needs to function properly and for that you should have enough fuel. MFP calculates your calories you need for breathing, circulation, digestion and so on as about 2200 to 3000 depending on starting weight, age and fitnes level. So if you want to lose 2 pounds a week it takes away 500 calories a…
  • I'm not sure where you live, but I have seen a lot of Aldi's around lately. I shop there about 2 times a month, their bread is under $1.00, even for wheat. Chicken breasts, 3 pounds for $5.49, lots of veggies for under a dollar.They also have good prices on seafood, bought a pound of frozen salmon for under $4.00 I check…
  • I agree with a lot of thje people that posted bevore me. I have been on the programm twice, I lost weight but after a couple of weeks my imune system would be down and I wound up with a bronchial infection both times. I didn't think that was a good thing so now I eat foods that I can spell the ingredience in :)
  • I would have it checked out and untill then I would not do the lunges. It could be something small, but I think it's better to be cautious then mess up something bejond repair. I have been having problems with my ligaments in my right knee and after losing avout 20 pounds it seems to be getting a lot better. Hope that…

  • I don't think it matters too much when you eat as long as you eat healthy. Could you eat something on the way to work? Carbs aren't too bad as long as they are complex carbs, maybe a whole wheat muffin with peanutbutter and apple, or eggwhites and veggies or some kind of protein shake? Then have a snack around 9 or so... (…
  • I'm not sure if you read these threads, but they really helped me understand that it is not just calories in , calories out , there is more to weightloss and this site i awsomn in it's approach to a healthy weightloss and lifestyle change. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/3047-700-calories-a-day-and-not-losing…
  • WOW thanks for sharing, I still have a long way to go and people like you are a great insiration :smooched: THANK YOU
  • I applaud you for being so young and having that much responsibility. I agree with all the other posts about getting her interested in sports ( I loved swimming... I guess because I was big and could float better:laugh)but I also think because of the neglect and problems at a young age she needs some kind of counseling.I…
  • Hi neighbor:flowerforyou: I live in southern Ohio:bigsmile: I think I would take my money and go to the grocery store and buy lots of veggies, fruit and whole grains and stick with the way MFP tells me to lose the weight. I have been on most of the crazy diets out there and this sounds like just another fad. What kind of "…
  • I think it depends on what kind of sick you are Colds and flue, chicken noodle soup, tea with honey, spicy food, oranges, bell peppers (vit C) Stomach flue: dry toast, cammimile tea, syrup of cola over ice, pretzels or salt sticks if you throw up a lot or have diareah ( replentish the electrolites) Gator aide I was brought…
