Hello, I am a 50 year old Mom of 2 boys ages 10 and 12..They keep me running to this activity or that, and it's hard to take time to take care of myself..
The one thing I never wanted to do was to embarrass my boys, but they have on more than one occasion told me that the kids in their school say things to them about my weight. I am a very short 5' 0 woman so being heavier makes me look worse than a taller person.. I've always been active so it's hard for me to believe I let myself get to this point. That being said is the reason that I"m here..
I have begun a lifestyle that isn't hard to stick with, I eat 1200 calories a day, but don't get too upset if I hit a 1500 calorie day. I have started the "Insanity" workout and I walk 4-5 miles a day. The kids right now are in between sports for the most part so I've decided to let the house get a little messier, and let the husband take on a little more of the household and kid duties. If I don't, at the rate my health was declining due to my weight gain, I wasn't gonna be around to watch my kids grow up and have my grandbabies..The "Insanity" thing is tough, and I haven't been able to stay with that group, but I keep moving and I go a little farther each time.. hehe.. I feel kinda silly cussin out the TV while I'm doin it, but they can't hear me ;)

I've lost 19 lbs since I started a month and a half ago.. was having a hard time until I introduced going to the gym.. it felt like I was gaining, but then the dam broke and the fat started coming off.. just 30 minutes a day on the elliptical and some ab and arm work.. today.. I lengthened my elliptical time to 40 minutes.. Wow that 10 minutes almost kicked my butt!!! Laughing

I can't figure it out!
Are you eating enough meals through out the day?
Are you eating balanced meals? and
Are you excersising?
just counting calories isn't always enough if you are skipping meals or not eating something about every 2 to 3 hours..
try looking up a glycemic index and learn which foods are considered fast carbs and which ones are considered slow or complex carbs.. your fast carbs give you a quick boost of energy and then metabolise into fat.. * not a doctor, not sure how it works*
Complex carbs, from what I understand stay in your stomach longer and can give you a steady amount of energy .. the higher the number in the index the faster the carb. You want to eat more of the complex or slow carbs. in combination with your proteins to help you keep those cravings away so you don't over eat when you do eat. Hope this helps.. it has me.. Have a great week and don't be too hard on yourself Wink

Advantages of a steam room or sauna
What are the advantages of sitting in a sauna for about 15 to 30 minutes?? I love sitting and relaxing in one after my workout.. but I was wondering if there were any health advantages and how many calories I'm burning while I'm roasting?? Laughing
