In Topic: So Frustrated With Lack Of Weight Loss- Help!

you said it just right! I mentioned it more for AfterAll to make sure that it was clear that anabolic exercise is not a substitute for cardio.


I understand- no worries. I am pretty muscular as it is. :).I love yoga so I may add that back into my routine- it isn't weight "lifting" but it def builds muscle.

Thanks for the suggestions. I know a higher intensity workout is probably key. We would like to have another child so I'll hold off on starting that kind of routine until after- but for now I guess I'll just keep on keeping on. I got a new scale and being able to see factions of a lb lost is more encouraging :)

In Topic: Corn Sensitivity And Pregnancy

I am not pregnant but I stay away from corn- I test allergic and it upsets my stomach. I also have celiacs so I'm used to avoiding things.

You have to figure out what you CAN eat and then keep snacks with you so you don't get caught hungry and have to scramble. I make most of my own foods. I go to grocery stores like wegmans and whole foods and take my time reading through ingredients and I find what works for me and stick to it. When eating out I stick to grilled lean proteins and veggies.

I am sure corn free prenatals exist but it will take some searching through the ingredients on your part bc it isn't a common allergy. Talk to your doctor about the glucose tolerance test- there may be an alternate test you can take.

When I was diagnosed... 10+ years ago... I spent the next year filling myself with the things I COULD eat to make up for the things I could no longer eat. I gained about 40 lbs! The only thing that takes the weight off for me is to cut out the obvious carbs... bread, pasta, baked goods. I just eat lean protein, veggies, fruit, and not a lot of cheese. Seems like all of our "bread" options have more calories (and a higher glycemic index) than regular wheat breads.

GO you on the exercise!!


Yeah I def don't eat too many gluten-free prepakaged foods so I don't think that's the answer for me.

I am def not in peri menopause ;). I'm 32 and hoping to ttc again soon for #3. There doesn't really seem to be a physiological answer to this- which is frustrating- I'm kinda hoping the thyroid answers it.
Unfortunately the weight is not in my boobs- as soon as I stopped nursing they deflated :/
