Are you tracking her nutrition for her? You can do it 2 ways. Either use the menu plan and check off what she eats. Click do not use menu plans. And enter the foods for each meal. You can keep a favorites list to make it faster. You can also change her nutritional goals and keep track of many vitamins and other nutrients in the foods she eats automatically. It may tell you what you need to know. For instance too much or too little sodium, potassium, or other goal item. Best wishes, Shirley
What flashed in my mind when I read your initial post was: "Maybe she needs a colin cleanse to get all the toxins out of her body." All of us have garbage in our colins that we have accumulated over years. I found the one I am on by googling 'colin cleanse'.
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these". Unknown
Mom doesn't have insurance until she turns 65 in August, so she's trying to hold off on going, if she can. I believe she's planning on having the whole nine yards done then, though - I guess that's something that's recommended by Medicare - something I'm glad of!
Howdy - I'm Sue and I'm NOT over 60, but my mom is. She also hates computers and thus won't join Sparks, even though I think it's fantastic. She's been part of a gym for four months, and exercises 3-4 times a week, has taken a trainer at one point to learn more stuff, and eats fairly healthy (chocolate being a downfall, but she's even cut that back).
Yet, with all of this, she still hasn't lost a pound. Not one in four months. (Well, she's been going between 190 and 187, but it keeps springing back again). She's healthier - she notices on her weekends to work she's not as tired and her knees hurt less - but not ONE pound.
She is getting incredibly discouraged, and I don't know what to tell her. Again, she doesn't eat badly - less than I do, less BAD things than I do - but nothing is happening. Her measurements aren't going anywhere, either.
Does anyone have any help? It's been suggested that she doesn't eat ENOUGH, but even when she tried to increase it didn't seem enough. Plus, she's not sure how much to increase, or anything. PLEASE help us - I like my mom happy, and right now she's not there.
