Start Weight:(24 Oct 11) 188.0 lb
Current Weight:(18 Jan 15) 171.4 lb
Goal Weight:147.0 lb
following: kitty-eared-girl's own diet
performance: losing 1.2 lb a week

I'm a 25 year old who has struggled with weight for most of my life. I had the great opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo for four months, and dropped from 198 to 186. Unfortunately, I gained almost all of it back within a year of returning home. I'm tired of feeling my thighs rub when I walk, and of being ashamed to wear anything less than a one piece bathing suit.

I currently moved, and have great access now to a gym and Dance Dance Revolution pads, along with more free time to concentrate on my eating habits. I've been working at it since the start of September, and am hoping to hit my target weight goals by next summer, so I can (for the first time in my life) buy a legitimate bikini!

Exercises with an Out of Commission Ankle
Hey FS!

I'm looking for exercises I can do to keep my weight down that involve little to no stress or strain on the ankles (my left ankle gave out in the middle of Zumba class, it rolled and I either sprained or tore something, so now its swollen but no longer sore).

I know I can do floor exercises like kneeling push ups and crunches, but is there anything I can do to get my heart rate up?

Fitbit Flex Not Sustaining a Charge
That's what I'm afraid of....did a little research on it and I'm not the only one whose had this issue. I'm currently waiting to hear back from Fitbit support, but I have a sinking feeling they won't be willing to help as I got this off ebay, not from them directly. I'll let you know when I hear back

Fitbit Flex Not Sustaining a Charge
I've had a Fitbit Flex (purchased used) for over a year now. Within the last week or so, I've found that it's no longer holding a charge for more than a day or so. I've checked the fitbit site and I've followed the suggestion of cleaning the contacts, but its hasn't helped (then again, the only close to relevant article they had was on the flex not charging at all).

Has anyone else had this problem, with the Flex charging but not being able to sustain said charge?

Adding Photo to Food Description
The only way I've seen to do it is through the mobile app, but that can't be right.
