    Peanut butter: yes or no?

    I LOVE peanut butter. I'm careful to only buy fresh ground or those that only contain peanuts and salt. And I try to only eat one serving a day but that doesn't always happen. It's pretty much my go-to snack on apples, celery, sometimes toast, etc. My question is, are the almond butters and sunbutters and other peanut butter alternatives of the world really any healthier? I've tried to make the switch and just don't like any of them. Is it even worth it?

    What's the best workout with resistance bands?

    I recently started using resistance bands as part of my workouts. And I really love them! I prefer to workout in my living room rather than the gym and the bands have really added a little something extra to my routines. They are also easy to travel with. I've found some different plans on Pinterest and have been following them for arms and legs moves, but I was just wondering if anyone else here has any experience using bands and what moves you would recommend? thanks :)

    Why do I keep sabotaging my weight loss?

    Every time I actually start seeing progress on a diet or with an exercise routine I feel like it has the opposite effect on me. Instead of being like, oh yay this is working lets keep going! I fall back into my old habits. Why do I always do this? Anyone else have any experience in this area? I'm thinking maybe I'm too restrictive in the first phase so when I start to see results I start to reward myself with all of the things I gave up (which I know isn't the way to do it). How do I....

    How do you exercise when some parts aren't yours and you have fibro too?

    61 y.o. woman with two artificial knees and a raftload of pain? The knees work fine, but I've been told that kneeling could damage the plastic patella (potentially leading to replacing the replacement). I've also got fibromyalgia, and standing or walking hurt. A lot. I know I need to lose weight. I know I need exercise. But what? Jogging or walking distances is a no go. Yoga? Need to avoid the kneeling. I'm sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, but I'm also afraid it's gonna....

    Work Making Me Fat?

    Hi, I'm in my late twenties and recently came back to work from medical leave. I noticed when I started working at this job earlier this year that I was gaining weight in my midsection (lower) I have NEVER gain weight there, I'm strictly a thighs and boobs girl. While I'm not overweight (135) I had lost weight just while NOT being at work without any exercise or change in diet (I was recovering from a surgery). Now I've gained all that weight back from only the first week being back....

    H2O Challenge = Water and carbonated water

    I've been on an H2O challenge at work - mainly focusing on proper hydration, not necessarily for weight loss. I've been averaging 8 - 10 glasses of water daily, but like to supplement my intake with a few glasses of carbonated water every now and then. There's no sugar or sodium - just a slight taste of lemon. Any harm in using carb water for daily hydration? Thanks
