Re: Chiro - worth it or not?

Thanks for the advice. I have my foam roller and have been using that.
I've decided to stop with the chiro. It's not that he's bad, but that I resent sitting in a waiting room for half an hour after...

Re: Oldest Women on here??? What are your goals...

Haven't posted here for some time (boss banned me from visiting forums at work, and I usually have more exciting things to do when I'm home than surf the web...). I'm 41 and have been lifting weights...

Re: Video Games

Re: hair removal

As a woman, I don't mind chest hair on a man, although a thick rug of back hair is not attractive to me, personally. If you are so adorned, waxing is indeed the best bet for you - it's long lasting...

Re: Another UK newbie

Hey Paul. I went to Essex Uni about a million years ago so I know Wivenhoe well. (I'm a Londonder myself).

You'll make quick progress to start with - just be careful not to do too much too soon -...

Re: Return of the Ten Pound Challenge?

Hey Faith, welcome. I was one of those taking part in the original Ten Pound Challenge (I lost about 5lbs in the end but put it back on when I tried intermittent fasting). I've successfully lost 9lbs...

Re: never hungry

I go through phases. There are times when I think constantly about food and will eat anything that isn't nailed down. And there are times like now when I don't give a crap about food (I am on a...

There is nothing on God's Green Earth that would persuade me to eat tripe!

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

Chins and dip last night. I have always struggled with pull-ups but managed 3 dead hang chins in a row, which I'm pleased with.

Sets went something like 3 chins, 12 dips...2 (and a bit) chins, 12...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

Progress has slowed. In fact, the scale didn't budge last week. I'm not sure I can eat less than I do at the moment. I certainly can't work out harder - even normal lifting taxes me to the point I...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

Things are going pretty well, still. I went out with friends on Wednesday night so we chose a sushi place. I ate mainly sashimi and vegetables - but I had three little pieces of unagi sushi which is...

Re: Susie's Recovery Log

Yup...50s isn't old in the general scheme of things. It's not 20, but you'll look back at this when you're 80 and think "god I was young then!"
You're doing great so far - just keep listening to your...

Re: Breyers every night (seriously), explain this

Just curious as to what is so magical about Breyers? We don't get it in the UK (though we get H-D and B&Js).

Re: Other weight loss programs?

I tried IF using mainly Paleo foods and ended up putting on 7lbs. I was not happy.
So I switched to the Velocity Diet (I do the shakes and hot rox but not the Surge or the flax seeds, and after week...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

At work yesterday, then hit the gym for 400m of lunges on a treadmill. Protein shakes during the day; can of tuna over watercress and rocket for dinner.

I did not sleep at all well last night and...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

10 stone 5 (145lbs) today. A much smaller loss but it's still heading in the right direction. If only I had more energy but my sleep is really poor, and the weather is also muggy.

Re: menstrual spotting after strenuous exercise

Men just find it freaky that something can bleed for five days and not die. I think they're secretly afraid that we're harder than they are. :D

In all seriousness, it's likely to be down to hormones...

Re: What's the source of the problem when one foot is turned out a little?

I have the same thing. My right foot flicks out when I run. I'm female and have a large Q angle (wide hips, slightly knock knees). I can't seem to do much about it. I did sprain my right ankle quite...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

I've been lacking energy the last few days. I notice my heart seems to be beating harder when I do anything strenuous. I'm not unduly concerned as I've read (somewhere on this forum) that this can...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

Oops and forgot to say I'm 41 next month. The thing I notice, which has been the case for a while, is that if I grab the skin on my leg and pull upwards, all my cellulite disappears (which makes me...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

I think the energy loss is mainly because of the cold I had. I actually felt perfectly fine when I was doing the diet strict in the first few days before the cold arrived. I've had so many of them...

Re: Susie's Recovery Log

Susie, I'm glad the surgery went well. You're a tough broad and I know it'll be all uphill from here. You'll get that pull-up, don't you worry! You know everyone here is rooting for you - I don't...

Re: Anyone had laser eye surgery?

Reading glasses are an age-related thing (presbyopia) - and yes, if you stay short-sighted, you most likely won't need them. However, I'm 40 (41 in June) and had lasik two years ago, and my near...

Re: Cal's V-Diet Hell

Week 3

I can't say I'm on strict V-Diet any more, though things are still moving in the right direction. I ran out of Low Carb Grow (or Metabolic Drive) so ordered more, which will arrive tomorrow,...
