The "Banana" was even worse than the Dolphin! At first, I couldn't even get my arms and legs to go up at the same time. It was a KILLER!

Now I see I have to re-inflate my ball for tomorrow. LOL.

thanks becky, those were good articles.
since i joined sparks i don't eat sweet things very often, but when i do-- the whole next day i am starving all day no matter what i eat. then i spend the day trying to eat something to satisfy me. it is so not worth it !!!

i am doing the challenge exercises too... how about that dolphin. i survived it i just hope you don't inflict the plank on us !!! lol

Thanks, Becky! I've been doing your posted strength exercises (even though the "Banana" just about killed me!) and I'm going to try not eating any starches after lunch (except that I just ate some sweet potato and multi-grain chips before I read the article). I'll do better tomorrow.

Why do some people have a more difficult time losing weight than others?

Amount of muscle mass

First, muscle mass is directly proportional to metabolism, and thus calories burned. People who have a large muscle mass burn more calories and can more easily lose weight when they control caloric intake than someone who has a low muscle mass. Therefore, if you want to optimize your weight loss success incorporate strength training into your routine in order to build muscle mass and increase overall metabolism. This also helps to ensure that any weight you do lose will be fat and not muscle. Keep in mind that your metabolic rate will still stay high even once you’ve lost weight.

When I was working I used to freeze my yogurt cups and leave them in the freezer at work. They were a good snack at break time. Like eating ice cream.

It works for people - and for dogs! They love the full fat, plain yogurt - I give each about 1/2 a small serving a few times a week. They run to their bowls and lick them clean. Give it a try - it's good for them, too.
