I am trying to lose weight...but haven't been very successful lately. I found that my body is really out of whack...I am very acidic. I am trying to eat better, and am taking supplements to counter this but I seem to be getting worse! Has anyone had this problem? What did you do to turn it around? I am a vegetarian so this surprised me. I also have high cholesterol...which I believe is hereditary. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know I can't be young again, but I also don't want to "feel" old.View Thread
Hello, I use the food and fitness planner every day to help myself lose weight. I noticed a problem with it today. Right now where I track my food intake it is right around 1300 calories, when I go to any of the other screens it says I have eaten over 1500 calories. I calculated the calorie total to make sure that wasn't the mistake, but it came to be right around 1300. Anyone else having this problem is there any way to fix it? View Thread
I've been trying to lose weight by cutting calories and exercising regularly for about the past 7 months. Even though I fall off the wagon for a little while and gained back about ten pounds, I'm back on track now and I've lost about 22 pounds from my highest weight. In addition to weighing myself, I've been taping my waistline, and I've noticed that for the past couple of months, even though I've been losing weight, my waistline has stayed about the same. I also took progress pictures of my torso to see the physical difference over time. Since today I reached another ten pounds less than my last progress pic I decided to take more, but I was disappointed to see that my stomach has gotten noticeably larger around than it was 10 pounds ago. It's especially obvious from the side view. I'm really worried about this, because the stomach has always been where I carried most of my excess weight, and I'm really concerned about the health effects of too much fat there. Any idea what could be causing it? I've heard that targeting certain areas (like by doing abdominal exercises) doesn't work, but is there any way to prevent fat from building up in a certain area? Thanks.
Oh btw, I'm 23, female, and I'm about 40 pounds overweight for my height as of now.View Thread
I have been overweight ever since the birth of my first child 37 years ago. I gained 65 pounds during my pregnancy and never lost it. I have dieted on every fad diet there is only to get bored with it and slowly return to my chips, cookies, and ice cream. Now I'm 57 years old and 150 pounds overweight. I am worried about my health but the worry only brings on more stress and we all know what happens. I just can't seem to stick with it. I can't seem to change my old habits. Now I suffer from fibromyalgia and it hurts to do any sort of exercise. I'm sure I sound like everyone else who posts on here but I didn't know where else to turn. I feel hungry all the time. Where do I begin?View Thread
