So....we should set our alarms to wake us up to feed after 5 hours sleep? Less our livers self-cannibalize?

Anyone else weigh MORE after doing a poo!
Yep. Even without eating or drinking anything before. Baffling it is.

Looking for Fitness Buddy, for Accountability
I could almost say ditto to all you said. I have two grown boys, one of which is living downstairs while still in school. Really it's just me and my hubs...and that is where the problem lies. We love going out to eat. So the first change I need to make is to stop that, or at least take it down to once a week. I did do Atkins for a while, and though it did work and I lost weight, I know me and my love for pasta, and I could not make it a life long habit. So, it's counting calories. I'm aiming for 1500/day and see how that goes. If no loss, I'll take it down to 1400. Pilates 3x week and try to fit some walking in there too. I used to not like water also, but I now have a bottle with me always. Guess it grew on me. I think we should create a group so we have somewhere to go to post our PROGRESS. Maybe if I know you're watching I'll be more apt to behave. To add the weight ticker I think you go to 'My FatSecret' and find where you add a signature (look on the right side bar) and there should be an item, like a check box for you to choose.

Hi Tracey. I'm a few years older than you, 51, and not nearby, Oregon, but I sure do understand frustrating weight issues. I've been so frustrated for the past 4 years trying to keep my weight down. I also have a sedentary desk job and haven't been strict with exercise. My favorite exercise is pilates and I do walk at home dvd's and I really need to develop some consistency with both diet and exercise. I can see where most cardio exercise may be a problem for you, but strength building in a gentle way might be okay. Have you addressed it with your doc? I used to have horrible pain in my joints and never got a definite answer as to what it was. I was in my 20's when that came on. It seems to help keeping the muscles surrounding them strong. Do you have pain on both sides? Anyway, I'm here if you need a buddy. I thought it would be neat to have a group of people with similarities and compare what's working/not working. Every group I've joined like that has not had much activity. Not quite sure how to make that work. MJ

WOE
Wow!!! You have come so very far. UD & DD, is that alternating days of eating 1300/600 calories?

Why does my weight top out and then bottom out (yo-yo)?
My weight does that too and more so when I eat bread or pasta. I think it's just water...kind of has to be.

Help
Food is not your enemy, it is fuel and your body will not run without it. It's that simple and that's how you must think of it. You need to bring your calories up to an acceptable level. You will gain weight because presently your body is pulling all stops to keep you from starving. If you focus on eating clean, healthy foods, and enough calories to nourish your body, your system should naturally seek a healthy weight. Please don't continue to harm yourself. This really breaks my heart. Be healthy! Be alive!

Menopause and weight gain
My doctor had the same no solution attitude. I've quit eating meat and some dairy and I'm fineally losing weight again. I was shocked because I had taco's two nights in a row and then spaghetti the following and lost 2 lbs. Normally my weight pops up at least that much after eating high carbohydrate foods. I did not put any meat on my taco's, nor in the spaghetti sauce this time. Time (and commitment) will tell.

frustrating
I share your frustration, but slow is better than no loss. It all seems so impossible, you know? I can gain a pound with no effort, but I have to work hard and eat nothing but plants to lose it. Not fair.

Pilates
Just do what you can. I have a hard time with roll like ball and the seal, but maybe one day??? Doesn't matter, it's working and firming me up all over. Keep it up and your form will change.

Pilates
I'm am having great results with pilates. I am also using Winsor. I can't say enough good things about it. Works best though combined with cardio.

FEET?
I use the same shoes for the walk at home workouts with no issues, and the pain leaves when I stop. But you're right. It could be the shoes with this particular type of work out. It has a lot of lunging from a squat to the toes with weights. Maybe I'll just not go to the toes and see if that makes a difference. Thanks for your input.

FEET?
I was doing a calisthenic sort of dvd last night and had to stop because my feet hurt. Of all the body parts that I was working, the only thing bothering me was my feet! They sort of felt REALLY tired and crampy on the bottom and inner sides. Much of the routine had me on my toes. Wonder if that did it. I've mildly experienced this before when I first started exercising, but I haven't been on my toes much. Anybody have this happen?

Exercise Tips for Toning?
Pilates. Great for toning the core quickly and it's quite enjoyable.

Need a little motivation...
Where I live it rains MOST of the time so I use in home walking video's. They are more challenging than just a walk, but the steps are easy to follow and anyone can do them and you will work up a sweat.

I'M AMAZED
Keep us posted sandbsmom. My money is on you feeling and looking fantastic in short order.

I'M AMAZED
I'm doing it at home using dvd's. I purchased a few of them for variety. I started with Leslie Sansone's "You Can Do Pilates", then I bought the Winsor 3 dvd set which I really like, and I have some of Denise Austins that are okay. I look forward to doing them because it just feels so good. You stretch an lenghthen and the best part is rediscovering your muscles. I haven't seen them in a long time, but I can see them now.

Low carbers....is this a good plan for tomorrow?
Hey there. I would suggest swapping out that vegetable oil spread for some good ol' butter. Coconut oil is a good addition to your diet as well, if you can get it.
