i was thinking about doing atkins but every time someone says something different i always go into deep thinking mode and dont start b/c i believe what everyone says. I work out sooo much that im not really on a diet im trying to eat right but i wanna lose it fast .
i tried LA weight loss....i didnt like their system at all...to be honest i would rather do weight watchers b/c u can count points on LA u have to count foods and it just took so much energy.
Pancake, I hope I didn't sound like I was here to advertise for LA Weight Loss. I was just saying what worked for me. I'm undisciplined and require structure and convenience. For those reasons, LA works for me.
The WW point system didn't work for me. I tended to accumulate all my points by eating all the WRONG food! But I'm glad it works for you b/c LA Weight Loss is NOT cheap. One is required to have disposable income to stay with LA, something I'm fortunate to have.
Sometimes, for some of us, it requires a crisis situation to make us treat our bodies as we should.
For me, turning 54 was sort of a make-or-break point. My older brother had heart bypass surgery at 54. He had never taken care of himself and ended up paying the price. I realized I was headed in the same direction as he; with a family history full of cardiovascular disease, there was a real possibility that if I didn't change my evil ways I might not see 60.
Plus, there was a vanity issue too; I could not accept the plump, frumpy, matronly woman I saw in the mirror. As silly as it sounds, I didn't want that woman to be the woman who'd be lucky enough to run into Owen some fine, random day!
Glad to hear you work out so much. I'll keep you as an inspiration for myself! May I ask exactly what you do specifically in your workout routine? I'll appreciate your input.
i bought an elliptical machine and i usualy do that for an hour, i have a kickboxing dvd that i work ouy to, yoga, pilates,and aerobics....i reccomend pilates u lose inches and pounds FAST and it keeps u so healthy and its not like aerobics...so u dont get winded so easily. ill post the link so u can check it out.
Well at most gyms they give u time limits on those machines b/c they are so popular. But i have one in my room and i become very obsessed with it. when i dont work out to my dvds i do the elliptical for 2 hours. I already did it for an hour today , im so tired for some reason. i dont wanna do anymore....
hey, does anyone know of any natural herbs or vitamins that give u energy??
Pancake, don't belittle yourself. I'm sure you do fine!
As a kid, I was the ultra tomboy. But, sadly, for me that trait did not translate into being athletic which was a big disappointment to me.
During my bout with tendonitis, I was painfully walking around with an exaggerated limp. I had to go to Wal-Mart one night. Walking through the parking lot, I grabbed the first abandoned shopping cart I could find. I used it like one would use a walker. It got me in, through, and out of the store pretty well. I was sorry to have to return it to the cart corral. I couldn't help but chuckle at the situation - and the funny picture I must have presented, hanging on to the shopping cart. ;D
It's no surprise exercise makes us feel better - physically & emotionally. It's probably the best remedy for what ails us. It forces us to manufacture endorphins and oxygenates the blood. I can't think of any situation that isn't helped by some kind of exercise.
