  • @33gail33 hahaha I had a 9 pound baby in less than 3 hours. She cracked my tail bone. That took a couple years to get over. I had a shoulder surgeon do my cortisone he bragged that it had to go into capsule. So I hope he got it there. I do know my GP Git the tendon only. It was a waste. Like you said thank God we’re past…
  • @wunderkindking you’re getting warmer.
  • @AnnPT77 Again this diet is based on real science. Based on real medical studies written by real doctors that everyone can read if they want to put in the time. They point you to every study. Not enough is said about menopausal women and how they suffer. We're supposed to just sweat our balls off and just get through it.…
  • My shoulders turned out to be not an injury either. Like you I was at my most fit training to win a weight lifting contest for my age (55) and my shoulders just slowly but surely were in excruciating pain. What I know now was from over training in the wrong direction. Never went back either. I did get cortisone twice in…
  • @33gail33 for my frozen shoulders from too much bootcamp classes over 6-8 years in my 50's I quit them and started pilates as recommended by a massage therapist. They asked me why I was pounding my body so hard for a woman my age. hmmmm. I did pilates for nearly 4 years in the first year both my shoulders were back to…
  • @springlering62 Thank you I do want to get to the finish line. I started in 2011 with exercise and healthy eating. Got 86 pounds off and then got stuck with the last 24 pounds. No amount of diet and exercise budged it. Me nor any professional could get it to move. They'd say... MORE exercise, Don't eat below 1200 calories.…
  • @33gail33 Diet has such a negative appearance. I've been told for years that one doesn't want to be on a "diet." So I've learned to eat healthy for me. I too, have lost weight the regular way with healthy eating, exercise, and MFP. I could only go so far though. I had a last 20 pounds that just didn't budge. I exercised…
  • @kshama2001 that link is so ridiculous it’s embarrassing. So many things said just to be dramatic not factual.
  • @ninerbuff no correct information has been posted in this group about this diet by other people. Its not restrictive at all. Its for reducing inflammation in menopausal women's bodies and therefore helping us lose the stubborn weight. It's not expensive. There's nothing to buy really but the instructions on how to do it.…
  • @33gail33 It is about doing an intermittent Fast, cutting sugar, increasing fiber (veggies). It's really a good livable plan. Not expensive. No re-ocurring fee. So way cheaper than any plan I've ever tried over the years. Its also for menopausal women. So I'm not sure what all the mansplaining about menopausal women's…
  • @juliedubya28 I have no idea what the first poster is talking about. Yes, you do need pay for the instructions to the diet and why not. Someone has done the research. There is a "The Galveston Diet" FB group. Its mainly I suspect to learn about it and see if it will work for you. If you have tiktok, Dr Haver talks all…
  • @springlering62 I have no idea what you're talking about, but it's not remotely like The Galveston Diet.
  • Trader Joe's Chili Onion Crunch condiment ... I thought it would be too spicy for me, but it added a wonderful zing to my dinner.
  • I'm almost 5'4". When I got to 160 I was a size 8-10 because I was doing a bootcamp class 3-4 days a week. Loved my size. I wanted to get to 145, because I'd be out of the "overweight" zone, but I just never could get out of the 160's! So, I just enjoyed them until I had to recoop and injury. Did Pilates for 3 1/2 years.…
  • I turn off the calories earned through fitbit. I don't want to eat them. Unless I was to run a marathon then I'd need some fuel otherwise it will aide in losing weight. Occasionally, I'll feel like hungry and may have an extra snack. Let those steps work for you.
  • I began a huge thinking year in 2011. I was over whelmed trying to get healthy and I was the highest weight I’d ever been. I decided to keep it simple. To do the opposite of what I’d always done. I started exercising. I hired a trainer to make sure I was actually exercising correctly. I decided to give it one year. Prove…
  • Stevia isn’t a natural sweetener.
  • I found removing artificial sweeteners even stevia calmed my hunger drive down a lot. Then I found just practicing new habits. My body gets into crazy rhythms so easily. This quarantine has my eating off. I’m getting back on track.
  • Sounds like my story. Used MFP to lose 80 pounds. Then I tweaked my diet after a while 30 year. I stopped MFP because I was eating paleo and it wasn’t a good fit. Now I just need the accountability to get my Covid baking under control.
  • I need active friends too. Went through my friends list and deleted anyone who hadn’t posted in over a month.
  • I know how it happened in same boat. I’m back after some injuries and general Covid laziness. Need to reign in my baking.
  • I didn’t know it back when I started, but it wasn’t behavior I needed to figure out. It was WHAT was I eating that drove me to go on crazy binges. I found for me artificial sweeteners (yes even stevia) contributed to 80% of my craving binging. Now if I feel like a crazy binge first thing I do is see if an artificial…
  • I'm not sure if I'll use MFP to record my food as I like to eat Paleo/Pegan and the joy of that is not logging. BUT clearly I need some accountability right now for things like drinking enough water, remembering my vitamins, eating breakfast, getting enough exercise. So, we'll see how I approach this accountability. I did…
  • I have to say it's all different for every body. I lost 86 pounds and my feet felt fabulous for bout 3 years. Then the pain came back. I worked for a year trying different shoes, inserts, levels of exercise and walking. Then my right foot went down for the count. I couldn't even work through the pain. It affected my foot,…
  • I'd really like an accountability group, but I tend to get lost in a big group. 2011/12 I lost 86 pounds. I kept it off with healthy eating and exercise till 2016. I had over-trained my shoulders and they were excruciating. I stopped boot-camp and started Pilates. it did miracles for my shoulders! Its not cardio so my…
  • After you've lost weight. Spent a year being complimented... nobody tells you that you actually get sick of being noticed. You want to be a regular every day person. Once I'd seen EVERYBODY I knew took about 3 years finally I was just me. Not that woman who took off a shiton of weight.
  • I remember that feeling. I didn’t lose the bulk of my weight till I was 51. I picked one thing. One thing I thought I could check off my list. Turns out it’s the one thing that keeps the weight off me. Exercise. I keep active no matter how well or bad I’m eating. Exercise always brings my eating back in line.
  • Plan a snack, BUT when I first started losing weight evening were the hardest time for me. I had to learn that I just didn’t need more food. I had eaten enough. You’ll work out what your body needs. Keep up the exercise. It has been the biggest step to my losing 60+ pounds and keeping it off.
  • Man been there. I completely quit artificial sweeteners. Found it drove about 60% of my sweet cravings. Then took me until I did a whole30 to find out that simple carbs and actual sugar drives the rest of my cravings. I’ve never felt so calm in my entire life. I also figured out that my tsp of honey in my morning coffee…
  • Butterfinger Crisps... maybe it shouldn’t. I like my smaller butt.
