    Sometimes we need to tweak our healthy routines and take charge of moving forward even farther.  If something isn't working, we can change it.  It's great to get new ideas when we need a refresher for our routines.  We have the power to be our own leader.  The healthy lifestyle is an ongoing learning process where we change up or add new ideas as we go.  So, be a trendsetter, a leader, and...

    Opportunistic Eater

    4
    Hi All - Does anyone have advice for avoiding or turning down unhealthy foods offered at public events, family gatherings, office breakrooms, etc.? For example, every Friday, my office has a free breakfast available to the staff and it's usually unhealthy (e.g. doughnuts, bagels, bear claws, etc.). Every week, I tell myself I'm going to avoid it, but I always eat from it. Is there any advice on...

    20 Pounds

    3
    Why does it seem so difficult to lose that last 20 pounds? I am average height and weight, but would like to get down to about 135.0 pounds (high school weight) The goal is attainable, but one has to put forth a lot of effort.  Getting motivated is the problem. Sticking to a exercise schedule is a problem for me. I do good for two weeks, and then, fall off the ban wagon. I will remain...

    Advise on living fit and healthy

    2
    Just this year I have gained 20lbs. Due to highschool stress, working at a Dinnin resturant and life itself. My eating habits are out of control. I've tried to start slow, decreasing my food portions, and avoiding sweets. But the moment I cave in on sweets everything fails. I eat till I am stuffed. I feel so guilty because I know I can resist the sweets. I say this because 2 years ago I quit...

    Staying motivated

    I'm struggling staying motivated.  With diet and exercise.  I'm always tired due to my insulin resistance.  My roommates have junk food everywhere.  I did good last year with diet due to insulin resistance and I couldn't anymore.  It got harder and harder to eat meat and vegetables.  I couldn't have root vegetables, carbs like bread rice and pasta, no sweets/sugar, and no fruit.  Granted...

    Hi All, I'm new and excited about this support group and getting in shape for the summer! It's a lot harder for me to lose weight in my mid-50s than when I was younger. Decided to try some new supplements today and will see what the outcome is. I have an issue with eating at night while watching tv. I just like to have something to snack on! I also like afternoon snacks, especially chocolate....

    A second try

    Hi All - I just joined this group today and am excited to be a part of the community. Over the last few years, I've lost 60 pounds and am currently at a healthy weight. However, I'm hoping to slim down in preparation for my wedding and, of course, the upcoming summer. I've recently begun kickboxing, but only attend classes 1-2 times a week (membership is pricey!). I'm looking forward to...
