    Anyone home ?!

    Hey, Sarge ! I thought I'd drop by to see how you were. A member of the resistance band team PMd me and that made me realize I hadn't seen you on SP in a while.

    How are you doing ? I've missed seeing your replies in the forums.

    see ya

    Same here! I read a lot and really should post more! This team is vital. This was an one of my Eye opening experiences:
    I enjoy doing light athletic events but really haven't see

    n much progress in weight loss area. After reading, I see the importance of controlling nutritional intake and strength training.

    Until I ran across this group, I'd completed forgotten what worked for me a few years back.

    I was to have a surgery and needed to lose a few pounds before the surgery for peace of mind (had a bad experience with anesthesia many years prior to this). I worked out with a friend who is a fitness trainer. I didn't understand why she had me do this routine but I trusted her.

    Nutrition: 1400 calorie diet

    Week 1
    15min light cardio - exercise bike (5 days)

    Week 2
    3 days - 5 min light cardio and 15-20 min strength training - 5 min cardio
    2 days - 15-30 min cardio

    Week 3 and 4 increased strength training but cardio stayed the same

    I never did more than 30 min cardio and I faithful controlled by intake.
    Within 6 weeks I was down 15 pounds.

    I have a lot of weight to lose but I haven't been doing any strength training - just mega cardio. Going to revise my routine and see what happens!

    Hi, Sergeant Major. I hope you are well. I have been a member and a "silent reader" of your sage advice offered to us on the F.I.T. Females in Training team, but when I went there today intending to ask your advice on rehabilitating my weak calf muscle after healing a partially-torn Achilles tendon, it said we no longer have a leader. I hope our seeming apathy did not discourage you. You are the only available leader whose advice I feel I can truly trust because of your experience.

    Can you please suggest some exercises I can do to get my calf muscle back to where I can stand unaided on the ball of my foot, with no help from the other foot? I am doing the calf machines at the gym 2 times a week--I can push a bit more than 1/2 my weight. At home I stretch, walk on my toes, and do toe raises (heel raises?) on my steps once a day. Maybe I'm just not doing enough. My PT has ended. I'm on my own.
