performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

I am an empty-nester, age 53, divorced, mom with two daughters. My two girls are both away at college! Yikes. I live in my house with a housemate - we decided to install our treadmill and exercise bike in the tv room instead of chairs!

My goal is to weigh 125 or so, and to build up some muscle with strength training too. I am only 5 feet 3 -1/2 inches tall. I am working on this goal 5 pounds at a time. I lost 10 pounds last year, but have been on a plateau for almost a year!

I recently found some pictures of myself at 118 pounds and I looked good, but now I think I will work on the 125 still. When I get there, I'll check how easy 118 will be!

How do you deal with heel pain from bone spurs?
I would agree with others that you need to see a doctor. Foot pain can be caused by bad shoes, but something that heals overnight to a certain degree and then is bad at night is something that is getting worse through using your foot. Your doctor might have something to help but you would probably need at least an evaluation and maybe an x-ray to see if it is soft tissue or bone. Good Luck! I have plantar fasciities that is helped with the orthotics but no bone problems.

not diet related, but
I married a guy like your brother, and we invited his family - only his mother came. I should have realized that my husband (now ex) was the one who was the cause of most of the problem!

Just Because I Care
Thank you for sharing this! And "don't sweat the small stuff" ends with "and it's all small stuff!" - thanks again!

Question
I usually go with the estimated square inches. Pizza is a lot of calories!

Stop running!!????
Hi, Wanna! When you tone your muscles, that is, use them, you won't gain muscle right away, but you will tighten the muscle and push the fat out of it - so if you are the same weight but lifting to build muscle, your body shape will change so that your fat sits on top of your muscle. So you are getting stronger but the fat is just moved not burned.
