  • dirtyred: If your eating had been crappy prior to the last couple of weeks, a lot of that loss is water.  I wouldn't worry about it too much. At least when you're stressed you lose weight.  I gain when stressed. No, my eating has been goo…
  • TarHeels&Rebels: They always color match at HD - any brand's paint chips into any of their formulas. Just find a different clerk - that one was obviously crabby or bossy.  No -they won't. It's the same policy no matter what store I've been t…
  • It's not just about the total calories, but what type of cals.  Here are a couple of my food journals from this week in the 1400 range.  It's a TON of food: 1437 TOTAL B: 1slice sprouted grain toast, 2 egg whites, slice cheese, 2 slices ham, coffe…
  • wildfloweragain: Seems like you get a lot of carbs and not a lot of protein. When you did South Beach, did you learn a lot about simple carbs?  I don't know about the food journals you are doing, I have only used sparkpeople (not enough was pre-ent…
  • Mrs.Reem: I am having trouble losing weight.   My coach put me on a new nutrition plan but I have to be careful about over/under eating. I hear ya.  We've put our bodies through a whole heck of a lot in the past few years.  How have you been doi…
  • Hollylb3: GRKaters: Hollylb3: taratru: That happens to me every once in a while.  I think if you "listen to your body" today and eat more, you're going to be okay. Sounds good to me. So far, I've already had a cup of whole grain c…
  • pfal6: I was taught in school to drink low fat milk. But the more I research and learn about nutrition, specifically paleo nutrition, the more I realize that if you are going to drink milk then it should have fat in it to blunt the insulin response…
  • You are incredible!!  Way to go!
  • I've heard of doing that, but don't have any experience.  I usually just plan my eating for the next day and average out may calories burned vs calories consumed during the week.  Unless you're really fine tuning or having an issue losing, I don't t…
  • I'm trying to increase my protein and lower my carbs (trying to stick to lower GI carbs too) to get over my weight loss plateau.  Today's estimated calorie intake is 1457 and honestly, it seems like a ton of food.  I'm hoping to either do bootcamp t…
  • beebe929: Protein increse I was talking with a friend who is at the end of a 140lbs weight loss.  She was saying she thought the weeks where she wasn't losing were the weeks her body was readjusting itself, like she was still getting smaller, mo…
  • Sugarnear: More protein, more weightlifting. I think that the combo of Tabata and a 5k is a lot (and I love working out 2x/day), but those are both pretty intense workouts. I think you're time would be better spent doing a full-body split with h…
  • Thanks ladies.  Will look into getting some more protein.  I've just signed up for a new bootcamp that looks more cross fit based, so that should help change things up!
  • gt7301b: My thoughts: What are you doing in your tapatas?  Are you doing strength training?  Strength training always helps me jump start weight loss?  Mix of things: burpees, jumping jacks with medicine balls, squat jumps with med ball, plank…
  • You look fantastic and are doing such an amazing job!  I echo what the other said about "normal" BMI.  You probably have too much muscle mass to be healthy and maintain that "normal" level.  My BIL is an ex all natural body builder and marathon run…
  • Is HIIT basically the same as Tabata expect it's a 1 min interval rather than a 20 second and 10 second rest?
  • HIGH fiber!!  With anesthetic and pain meds, she may need a little help.  After the first day or so, bland, lean foods aren't that important like they would be for someone having gall bladder attacks.
  • PunkinButter: It was my understanding that the activity level is how you are most of the day. I have a desk job, so even if I kill it at the gym 6 days a week, my activity level is sedentary. If you have a job that allows you to be on your feet mos…
  • Is the pain in your heel or the sole of your foot (close to the ball).  Plantar faciitis pain hits right under the ball, not the heel.  My husband has PF and he rolls his foot on a golf ball he keeps in the freezer.  He had orthotic inserts made a…
  • I dip mine in a mixture of canola oil with a bit of honey mustard and then seasoned crushed Rice Krispies.  They bake for about 15 minutes and then I spritze the top with a misto and broil them for a minute or so.  My 2 year-old loves them, but he's…
  • You flop onto the toilet because you don't have the strength to lower yourself down
  • I like these molten chocolate cakes for an easy dessert.  http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/molten-chocolate-cakes-69182.aspx I bake these in 4 ramekins, not muffin cups. They take about 5 minutes to prep and can be made ahead.  They are delici…
  • I made my baked ziti like this last week - assembled the night before and then baked the next day.  I added some water to thin out my sauce, knowing that the pasta would absorb some in the fridge.  I made sure the pasta was al dente and also waited …
  • 3.27.04_Helper: getting a c-section because you don't want to have incontinence later...... everytime I run I regret not having a c-section I had a C section and still have to be careful about certain movements when I work out.  Pregnancy relate…
  • Since anecdotes = proof, how about some pure ol' speculation for you? During a to circ or not to circ discussion on another board, one woman cited one of her reasons to circ being that she read that circing deadens sensitive nerve endings and she a…
  • dottymobo:   I know I've read the suggestions that the need is created by bad infant foreskin care (docs and parents not used to uncirced retracting for cleaning) and doctors in the US going to circ as a solution earlier since it's so normal anyway…
  • It's not covered by our "universal health care" in Canada.  I think my friends paid about $400. 
  • http://smittenkitchen.com/2012/01/buttermilk-roast-chicken/ This was delicious and super simple. I added a bit of hot sauce to it as well. 
  • I would rather my son consumer pure sugar, maple syrup or honey than any type of artificial sweetener. If they are hell bent on something "sugar free"  I wonder if they'd be willing to switch to Stevia (a natural, calorie and sugar free sweetener).…
  • I had Iveri whitening done at my dentists.  It uses a solution and UV light but there was absolutely NO pain and no sensitivity.  I have sensitive teeth already, so wouldn't have attempted it otherwise. I think it's relatively inexpensive. Mine was…
