Atkins and foot/leg cramps
Sounds like you need potassium supplements. I did the Bernstein Diet (low carb, low fat, VLCD) a few years ago, and had terrible cramps in my calves, until they upped my potassium supplement. After that, I didn't have any more problems.

Working out after breast augmentation?
I was back walking after a few days, jogging about 2-3 weeks later, and boxing after 6 weeks. Had to wait longer before doing push-ups and such. Wear the band your doctor will give you to hold them down when you run, and buy a very supportive sports bra. I like LuLuLemon Ta-Ta Tamer and The Bust Stops Here bras. Good luck with the surgery and the marathon!

reversing heart disease
I highly recommend getting The Pritikin Edge, or any of the older Pritikin books. It's a program that has been around since the 70's and was designed specifically to treat heart disease, as well as hypertension and type 2 diabetes. The main thrust is to eat whole foods (i.e. unrefined fruits, veggies, grains, etc.), avoid added sugar, limit animal foods (other than fish), and exercise daily. There are lots of specific recipes and guidelines in the book. I have stayed at the Pritikin Longevity Centre in Florida and seen some of the success stories first hand; it's quite amazing.

comments on posts
I generally respond if it's a question that I think I *might* be able to answer, or sometimes if I disagree with the OP. The ones I have a hard time resisting are the ones with incorrect but oft-cited information in them, or promoting extreme, unhealthy ways to lose weight. I hope I don't come across as a know-it-all (because I know very little, actually), but I just hate seeing people get bad advice.

I read the really good posts, but rarely comment, because I usually have nothing useful to add. I wish there were a "like" button on this site; I would use it a lot.

I need MOTIVATION!!!
First let me say, great work so far! 63 pounds lost is a hell of an accomplishment!

It can be really hard to stay motivated over a long period of time, especially if your partner is starting to slide a bit as well. Could it be that you are dieting too strictly and your regimen just isn't sustainable? Whatever you do to lose the weight should ideally be something you are willing to do the rest of your life to maintain it. If you can find a happy medium, maybe you'll be able to avoid the "diet fatigue" and bingeing behaviours, and continue to your goal weight, albeit more slowly.

I know that losing weight slowly is not as satisfying as losing weight quickly, but it beats the pants off gaining it back!

So I decided a couple of weeks ago that I didn't need to track my food anymore because things were just going so great. Big mistake. Haven,t lost anything ...

So no exercise with the sprained ankle. Trying to make up for it going forward with lower calories, maybe about 1200-1400.
