performance: losing 1.3 lb a week

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.

Currently I am working with a trainer - first week! (July 17).

Will let you know how it's going. I am working to stick to 1200-1300 calories a day.

nothing works...
My favorite tactic is to increase water/coffee/tea consumption - also, you are active, but maybe your heart rate doesn't increase enough to burn a lot of calories? Cardio has a heart-rate component that changes how much is burned. Good luck!

Coffee good for weight loss?
My nutritionist says that coffee is equivalent to water (black, of course). So it counts towards the daily liquid consumption.

Intermittent Fasting
I was told to focus on getting carbs and protein and drinking water. Once I had got the hang of eating enough protein and limiting myself to good carbs, then the nutritionist recommended lowering fat after that. Good calories make the difference in calorie-restricted diets - "clean" eating means getting all of your calories from fresh veggies, measured fats, and lean proteins like chicken breast, fish, and no red meat. Good luck!

Tasty food without any naughty ingredients...?
lol that is just what the nutritionists always say! Good food doesn't have to be fattening.

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.
