I broke mu foot 2 weeks ago and haven't lost a pound. I depend on exercise to help lose weight. I am a all or nothing type of person (shame on me!!!). I have yet to give sitting exercises a chance. But I think I'm fixin to. I'm so sick of sitting around doing nothing. I'm afraid to break a sweat cause I don't want to make my casting any stinkier than it all ready will be.

I appreciate your good advice,i'm still eating within the recommended range of calories,but what frighten me is the quality of eating like you know i just don't want to get any of my weight that i've lost earlier by good eating and exercising back.

I give all new members one piece of advice and it's this,"Don't look at good health or weight loss with an all or nothing mentality". If the only healthy thing you did for yourself today was drink 8 glasses of water, that's still a step in the right direction.

If you're still recovering from that cold/flu, you need to slowly ease back into your routine. If your immune system is still weak and you try to do too much, you risk lapsing right back into that cold/flu.

What to do ? How about restarting your exercise routine with a 30 minute walk ? The fresh air will do you some good.

As far as eating, ditto, slowly ease back into a routine. If your body is still fighting off whatever you had, you NEED those calories for energy. Don't drastically cut your caloric intake or you will end up craving everything in sight. Start with some simple changes first. try to eat a couple extra servings of fresh fruit and veggies. try to drinking plenty of water. try to take a walk. As your strength returns, you can return to a more normal routine.

For now, take baby steps literally and figuratively. And if you do feel ravenous, make sure you're eating plenty of high fiber foods that nourish your body. If you're eating a lot of junk, it's no wonder you're constantly hungry. The more sugary foods we eat, the more we crave. thus the reason to try to make more wholesome choices.

You might be over eating right now because you lost so much weight in a short amount of time.

Try bulking up on more dense food to help you feel fuller without a lot of calories. Popcorn is a great snack - 3 cups airpopped is usually about 100 calories, apples are another great snack at about 100 calories. Add a lot more veggies/beans to your meals to provide bulk without a lot of calories. Eating more dense foods and drinking a lot of water can help you feel more full.

The easiest thing to do to get back into a work-out routine is to plan on just 10 minutes a day for a few days, and then increase a few minutes each time until you get back on track.
