    I had been doing really good. Eating healthy was becoming the norm. Then my Mom broke up with her boyfriend of 11 years and I've been trying to be there for her during the transition... Which means a whole lot of really bad food due to emotional eating. Some things I've resisted but I'm not sure where to draw the line between I love you, I'm here for you, and my health. HELP???

    My family isn't helping

    I am not fat, really I'm only 116 lbs. and I weigh myself every day. However, I'm young so I guess I wouldn't be. My eating habits are awful. I love sugar and cake and sweets and so far it hasn't affected me at all. Lately, I've noticed I have a bit of a stomach. Maybe it's always been there maybe the cake is finally showing, I don't know. I still can't break my habits of sweets and my dad who...

    Weekly Weigh-In ♥ Jan 29-Feb 4 ♥ Feeling Stuck?

    If you’re feeling stuck and needing a re-boot now and then like I was recently, have you tried mixing up the diet again?  Ever since Halloween, and thanks to tracking my foods on myfitnesspal, I had a problem that I didn’t realize was creeping up on me.  After watching Joe Cross’s “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2” I realized I had that same sort of thing.  I looked up urticarial this time...

    New Personal challenges

    Hi everyone, my names Abby. After the age of 45, maintaining a healthy weight definitely became more challenging. I've tried weight loss groups, but with my jobs varying schedule I'd miss meetings and get off track. Self-motivation is difficult, but with the accountability of this group, I'm striving for a total weight loss of 40 lbs. in 2017, which will get me back to a healthy weight for my...

    Fell off the wagon..

    I was doing really well, working out at least 5-6 days a week, eating right, and losing a couple of pounds. Then I went to visit my father and missed four days at the gym. The first night I was there he ordered pizza. I didn't eat terribly, but I did eat things I shouldn't. When I got home, my mother came home from food shopping with 95% of the things I can't eat. I felt really bad about myself...

    Trying to lose weight

    I have been dealing with syringomyelia symptoms for almost two years now, with particular issues with weakness in my legs. As a result, being able to stay in shape and stay toned has become increasingly difficult, since I had a very active lifestyle in the past. Does anyone have any recommendations for low impact workouts, specifically ab/core, that would help me regain my athleticism without...

    Weekly Weigh-In ♥ Jan 22-28 ♥ Nutrition

    Lately, I’ve had the pleasure (tongue-in-cheek) of re-discovering that eating carbs causes me to crave more and more carbs.  Getting back to healthy eating after the holidays seems to be an ongoing process for me.  I’m sure I can’t be the on my own here. Carbs and sugars cause the craving for more and more and the feeling of an insatiable hunger. This leads me back to the knowledge that...
