Don't wait, start now
I have asked the exact same question before. Why do some folks need a 'start' date. What about September 1st is going to be different that today? To me, thats a procrastination excuse. When September 1 comes, nothing changes except for the start day, which now becomes Ocober 1, or heck, lets just start taking care of ourselves January 1st, you know...after the holidays.

What do you eat at night?
I'll second the cottage cheese. I use to be in the "no snack before bed" camp. Found that when I got up in the morning I was ravenous, or found that I was feeling hungry before going to sleep, which means a restless night. I really started to notice this after adding Body Pump to my week. I now eat a small snack before turning in. I love cottage cheese with a fresh seasonal fruit. Light, tasty and satisfying

Morning Protein
Yeah, I didn't get that he wanted to eat while driving either. When I drive, that's all I do. Last thing I need is to be in an accident cause I spilled a hot sandwich on my lap. Just say no to distracted driving. Anyway, you should stop and enjoy your food. It shouldn't be something you do while doing something else.

How do you lose the last 10 lbs???
What ever you are doing now, switch it up. Don't hang on to the same eating or workout routines week in/week out. Your body needs to be constantly guessing and challenged.

Morning Protein
I take a carton of egg whites to work. 2 oz of that and 3 wedges of Laughing Cow cheese make a quick and tasty omelette in the microwave. The carton lasts me two weeks.

Gym Pet Peeves
Thanks debrarae, that reminds me of one. Guys that think they own the fans! Seriously, you see someone doing cardio in front of a fan, don't move it toward the weight room, ask the service folks to put another one up.

What to snack on when reading a book or watching a movie?
Get an air popper! Air popped popcorn has minimal calories. Just skip the butter and salt!

Anyone dealing with exercize-induced amenorrhea?
If it doesn't happen after 3 months, you need to see your doctor. Lifestyle changes can and often do cause a shift in menstral patterns, that's not a worry. The worry comes if it doesn't return after 3 months.

Diet Soda's - Do they slow you down?
If you are borderline anemic, be careful about how much black tea you ingest. It hampers the body's ability to adsorb iron for women.

Good morning protein?
Can't go wrong with plain greek yogurt. You add what ever flavor you want to it. You have whey powder? Greek yogurt is a perfect medium for mixing it. My favorite is Fage Total 0.

Personal Trainers that arn't perfect
My first personal trainer was a woman in her late 40's that I wouldn't even consider as being "in shape". She knew her stuff though and that's what I was paying her for. To me, personal trainers don't have to be ripped. I prefer one that is not "perfect" as I can identify better with someone who is still a work in progress.

Know your privacy!!!
Folks here do remember that this is a free site? The only way this site stays afloat is through advertisements, and part of that is the ability for bots to pick up stuff through your profile. Don't put things on here that you don't want the public to see or read...like pictures of your kids or the area you live in. This also goes for ANY social networking site. They are in no way, shape, or form safe from public eyes even with so called security settings. What you put out on the internet is permanent and public ALWAYS!

I am In Need of Prayers because I am Haveing major Health issues
God helps those who help themselves. You are in my prayers, but you must provide the action. He can only guide you, he can not take you by the hand. I would also direct you to your local church for more prayer and support.

Exercise Sucks!
I didn't always get slap happy about exercising either, it comes with time...and results. Now I look forward to going. I love the way I feel after. If you read my journal, you can see that wasn't always the case. I could fast talk myself out of exercise any day of the week...and often did.

Wii Fit Plus
I like EA Active better than the Wii Fit series. The resistance band provided gives a much better workout than the 'games' provided through the Wii Fit. With that said, I really like the Yoga instruction provided with the Wii Fit, and I like that I can track my weight using the balance board.

Buddies journals, etc.
Select My Fatsecret from the top menu, then My Fatsecret again. On the line about 1/3 the way down on the page you will see Member(s): and a bunch of options. Choose My Buddies and all activity. This will bring up all the activity that your buddies have done up to 10 entries (I think).

Does Sugar/Chocolate stall weight loss for anyone?
Since you have your diet calendar as private, I really can't tell you if the sweets are the culprit. There are tons of reasons why you are not seeing changes on the scale. The biggest culprit is portions. If you are not measuring your food, this is a good place to start. Are you logging your meals? Every item that passes your lips needs to be accounted for. Are you calorie counting? If so, be sure to get your RDI from more than one calculator.

Worse than the one who doesn't wear deodorant, the guy or gal that washes in perfume eeewwwww! I am highly sensitive to the stuff. Some folks were this so heavy you can smell them when they park the car.

Disappointing.
Thanks Diablo. I am in it for the long haul. It is just this early in the process, with such a lot to lose, a good second week would have perked me up.

Sugar
If "progress" is believing that sugar=cyanide, I don't think it would be good for my mental health to change.
