About Me

  1. Oct 23 /2019 I was diagnosed with diabetes. And before that with hypertension. I still have time to turn this around. Right now my A1C is 6.9. And on meds my blood pressure is 105/75. Monday night I am joining a diet support group. I want to lose 50 pounds by next Christmas.
  2. Hi everyone, I'm in a bit of a transition stage in my life at the mo and to cut a long story short I've moved in with my mum for a few months while I get money together for a house deposit and find a decent place. We have always had a strained relationship but it has gotten better in recent years. When I was growing up she was very critical of me and made daily comments about how I looked, especially my weight. I have carried a bit extra for most if my life except for a couple of stages where I lost an extreme amount of weight in extreme ways. I have recently put some weight back on and
  3. I’m starting my third week of no carbs and no sugar. I’ve been exercising 4 times a week and stayed active every day. The only carbs I eat are from vegetables. I’m a little disappointed that I haven’t lost any weight. I need to lose 10-15 pounds and I’ve seen no change even though I’ve drastically changed my diet and workout routine. Any advice?
  4. I am very frustrated. I have been with my wife for 12 years, and in that time she refuses to eat healthy. She will reluctantly eat a little healthier, but not healthy. As a result, I end up eating lots of bad foods. My weight went up to higher then it has ever been. I have gone on diets and done well for while, but ultimately fall off because she brings bad foods into the house, cooks bad food (I cook also and cook healthy options). She will barely eat what I cook, even though a normal person would find it delicious (grilled chicken with sauteed onions, for example). I am foodie and al
  5. My partner (we are a lesbian couple) is 5'7" and 170lbs, used to be an athletic US Marine. She is very self-conscious about her weight gain the past couple years. I tell her I do not care what the scale says, and I am being genuine. I love her just the way she is and just want her to be happy. She frequently talks about wanting to go on a diet and exercise plan, but implies in order for her to go through with it, I have to do it with her. Issue is, I am 5'3" and 108 lbs and don't have much weight to lose. My metabolism is just higher than hers. I have no issue picking up my exercise game
  6. So, things were finally looking up for our family. And I was just offered a dream job in the most amazing city, which is nearby. My dad was told back in December that he had stage 1 kidney disease, and he had a checkup today with the kidney specialist. He was expecting to go into the doctor today and told to keep on doing what he doing (i.e. diet, etc, etc). He's been eating super healthy and taking care of himself. However, when he went in to see the doctor today, he was told his kidney damage is at a 4/5. He was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. He was tearing up over the phone,
  7. So heres my story when i was 14 years old i met a boy in school he was amazing i was with him until 18 years old but heres where it goes wrong in the last year of our relationship he torchered me lock me in his home, would hit me if his tea was not made for him coming home and after all the mental and physical abuse i found out he had been cheating with my best friend he totally destroyed my life to the point he hit me and i ended up in hospital fighting for my life so after 1 year of being on my own i met another man he was great everythink was perfect yet the minute i started to get comforta
  8. Well I've just been trying to eat healthy lately... but I have a major essay due today and the library cafeteria doesn't serve the most healthy food. And the most edible healthy option (sandwhiches) I've been having for lunch & dinner the last few days so I didn't want it again. So I had a pizza. And since I'm severely sleep deprived, also a Starbucks iced vanilla capuccino since I don't like coffee.. I've just had bagels & sandwhiches the last few days and now feel like a blown-up balloon. I've also been so busy I haven't had time to work out. My jeans already feel tighter.
  9. Hey, So I've been working on gaining weight this year. I'm sick of being the tiny girl, and really i feel disgusting. If you are curious about my size you can ask. I've started going to the gym...I don't do much if any cardio...because when I do I lose weight like crazy. I've been focusing on lifting weights and its been going pretty good. Since Christmas I've gained 7 pounds and feel great. I'm getting good definition too. My doctor also recommended I start taking whey protein because my diet is lacking and I lift so much. But the thing is my weight has stopped...and I can't see myself getti
  10. So, i've been thinking. I post here a lot, most of which end up just musings rants, and like others, proclamations of love. (GOD I STILL THINK ABOUT HER) Anyway, my ex was a big health nut, and a lot of our arguments stemmed from me resisting her suggestions to lead a healthier life, share a better life with her yada yada yada. And i was thinking. I wanted to share a similar life with her but on my own pace. WHen we broke up, i started realizing a lot of what she wanted/ was doing, is something that I also am really curious to do. So i am deciding to shed off a bit of my old ways. Liste
  11. Hi all, so basically I am an active 32 year old male, I do weight training and enjoy 'gains' as much as the next guy. I've noticed in the last year though that my abs are slowly starting to disappear as my body fat is getting harder to keep low. I'm assuming for my age this is a pretty natural deterioration of my metabolism etc. 3 weeks ago i decided to give the ketogenic diet a go. What can I say...the results are fantastic. I'd say within a week I was over any sugar cravings, headaches and other side effects touted all over the internet, and my and were already looking the best they had lo
  12. Hello All, I am new here and this is my first post. My sister is getting married in June and a lot of my family has not seen me for 6 years. In that time, I managed to gain 50 pounds and I look totally different than before. I am not happy with my appearance because I don't feel like I look as good as before. I was wondering if you thought that it is possible for me to loose 50 lbs by her wedding? I currently weigh around 220-225. I have already started, since 3 days ago, a diet but I am not sure if I am doing it right. I cut out all soda and only drink water, tea, and coffee.
  13. Before I go out and buy these pills, i was wondering if Anyone has tried this PARTICULAR set of pills. If so please give your opinion. Thank you.
  14. I am looking for a vegan cook book with SIMPLE, LOW COST and ideally LOW FAT recipes. I am writing this in capitals to stress the importance! lol I am not a creative cook and things that often sound simple to others are overwhelming to me. It would be counterproductive to purchase something that gives me stress. I am not familiar with too many herbs and spices and cannot afford too unique and expensive items, I find it tiring looking for strange ingredients. I would like to try a more plant based diet as I have heard a lot of good about it and I am willing to incorporate some change
  15. I'm posting this out of total frustration, and maybe someone has some insight to share. I moved to the Netherlands about a year ago, and plan to stay in the country another year (depending on Visa things). I love it here and my lifestyle is filled with good friends and healthy relationships, a lot of activity and the healthiest diet I've ever had. I hardly ever drink, have worked with multiple health coaches and nutritionists to adopt the healthiest diet of my life and stick to it strictly. I am a runner and hit one of my highest mileage goals in March. I am always careful to take the righ
  16. I am recovering from a break up like most others on here. I'm doing okay but it is a process however I know I will be fine. I was wondering apart from the ghastly feelings that you have deal with if anyone has physical pains. Since I saw the ex with another woman I've had a sick feeling in my stomach and cramps. I thought it was my diet at first, I've not been eating as much as usual and I thought it would pass. It's been 4 days of these pains now and I sometimes feel physically sick still. Is this normal? SB
  17. I'm getting really stressed out by my mid cycle bleeding. i am 26 and not on any sort of birth control. It's been going on for eight months, always in the middle of my cycle. Sometimes it's brown, sometimes it's bright red, heavier and mixed with egg-white cervical fluid. At first, I thought it might be ovulation spotting, but then read that this usually lasts three days or so--there have been months when mine lasted for up to a week. I had a pap smear which came back normal. I went to a GUM clinic and got tested for everything--nothing came up. I paid for a private ultrasound (both pelvic
  18. Hi everyone. New to this so please be gentle. I have been in a relationship with my partner almost 7 years, can't say i am happy anymore that would be lying. My partner is very strict with her diet through the week, eats well, lots of exercise and won't even think about treats of any kind, but come the weekend i meet an entirely new person. She drinks from roughly 5pm GMT on a saturday and Sunday until she is very drunk (talks funny, incoherent, stumbles etc) then she will binge eat literally any treat she can find but also strangely tries to sleep at the same time so you can imagine the mess
  19. Not serious as to get bulk and anything but if anyone can give me some kind of workout/diet plan for my goals then it would be great. I really want to lose some more weight and get defined all around. any suggestions? I rather not pay for programs or anything.
  20. So I never get in anyone's business, but my co worker feels the need to point out how unhealthy my diet is (like eating too much chocolate, caffeine sugar drinks etc). The ironic thing is that I am a lot skinnier (co workers always comment how skinny I am) then she is and people actually mistake her for being pregnant. When there is a pot luck, she stuffs herself and complains she overeats. What gives? Btw I absolutely hate when someone I barely know comments on my weight (good or bad), my dad always talked about me becoming morbidly obese in the near future despite me never having issues
  21. I've posted here a few times regarding my relationship which is long distance currently and about the various problems within it, this may sound strange but can I get advice on the text and call dialogue between me and her, this is just from today: 08:15 - Her: Morning handsome 08:17 - Me: Morning Beautiful 10:30 - call from her lasting 1 hour 20 mins, I got criticized and had a go at for "talking over twice" actually it was both us just talking at the same time and each time I said sorry and "you first" to her with her replying "it don't matter" "I've forgotten now" "you're always do
  22. I really didn't want to come back to ENA with my tail between my legs, and thankfully I haven't had to. I made a lot of entries on my struggles with fatigue on the heels of my recovery from abuse, and while I managed to prevent things from getting worse, I didn't make progress for a LONG time. Not sure how often I'll be making updates, since I don't really interact with any of the users anymore, unfortunately. It can be awkward when your journals are only a click away. I kept a low profile on here mainly bc. of that. You would think the answer would be somewhat straightforward, and in the
  23. Okay, so I posted a few weeks ago; my mom got really ill a few weeks ago and almost died from a hiatal hernia pushing into her lungs. She is doing better now but has to have a dangerous operation soon. In the meantime, I'm caring for our family dog. He is a 85lb husky/lab mix, 9 years old he just turned. I love this dog to death, he's like a brother to me. But, my mother always fed him and took care of him for the most part (I did take him to the vet and things and paid for most of hist stuff but she fed and bathed him). And she got him on what I call a "people food" diet, lol. For dinner,
  24. Hey there, About 20 years ago I spent some time in mental health care. One of the first sessions we had was about diet. They told me that "bananas and stodge" were the best foods to help. Stodge = Foods that are heavy and high in carbohydrate like potatoes. This is quite a while ago and I'm sure nutrition might have moved on. Does anyone know a. Why these foods in particular are good for you? b. What is the current beliefs around diet and depression? ps. Nice to make human contact and discuss with people so I'm asking here, but obviously I will be googling and researching too.
  25. 3 or 4 years ago, I decided to become plant-based. I did a lot of research on diet, nutrition and the China Study (if your interested, this study is explained in detail in the movie Forks Over Knives). It started out as a diet choice, but now has lead to a whole spiritual awakening. I don't want to hurt any animals. It was and is still the right choice for me. And I'm not trying to convince anyone to change.... but I wanted to start this thread for others that are vegan/plant based or are interested in becoming plant-based or vegan to chat. If anyone is interested in learning how to
