Finding time for exercise and effective methods with 3 kids?
I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and an almost 6 month old. I pump and that takes LONGER! I have given up on exercising for now..controlling my carbs..and guess what? I went from 185 and am now at 135 in less than 6 months..only a couple more to go to get to prepreg. Stay away from junk food and bread/sugars..thats what worked for me..for now Smile

So how likely are you to pick up a piece of meat again and eat it?
It seemed that when I was on induction for any length of time, I would always get food poisoning-type sick. I landed myself in the hospital after eating a seasoned steak (fully cooked IMHO). Now, I cannot eat much steak..especially with that seasoning on it!
Im glad you got your health back! Will this change your eating patterns any?

Basic Metabolic Needs
My favorite site is Here is a nice link that shows your RMR, BMR, caloric has some great weight loss calculators.

According to caloriesperhour:
If you want to lose weight, you can use the Weight Loss Calculator to calculate how many more calories you need to burn each day than you eat. This figure is called a calorie deficit.

calories eaten - calories burned = calorie deficit

Once you determine the calorie deficit you'd like to achieve, you can use the Food Calculator to calculate how much less you need to eat, or the Activity Calculator to calculate how much more you need to exercise. Or you can achieve the deficit you desire with a combination of eating less and exercising more.

If you eat 1200 cal/day but your RMR with activity factored in is 1500 cal/day, your deficit is 300..and in 10 days with these variables alone, youd burn 3000 extra calories....maybe this is what the DOCS are talking to you about? Eat less than you burn if you want to lose weight?
