That sounds awful mine don't give out but I do get really bad cramps in my legs at time from the back injury. Maybe our bodys will adjust to the weather soon, at least I am hopeing mine will.

I don't know the name of the actual diet, but my coworker has lost 64 pounds in the last year. Granted he's a guy, so it's easier, but I like the idea of the diet. Every week, the allowed food groups change so your body doesn't have time to adjust and tune itself out to the diet. When I see him again, I'll ask him what it's called. It seems like a pretty generous diet. Even when he can't eat certain foods on week, they're usually on the list the next week.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I used sparkpeople for a while too. I now use, and really like, myfitnesspal.com. I end up on both cause there's things on both I like better. Mfp has a great calorie counter and it really puts what you eat in perspective. Those foods you thought, it's only 200 calories for this, soon becomes I could have had this and this off those same 200 calories. Anyways it's really helped me to learn to watch what I eat and have lost a little weight using it. If you join, add me as a friend (janasse)

Yup, it's all about eating the proper amount of food and making the proper food choices. I've replaced junk-like snacks with a single cup of yogurt or fruit and asked my mom to make the healthier decisions when it comes to food (An example would be that instead of purchasing regular mayonaise she purchased the one made from olive oil instead which is supposed to be better for you). When it comes to meat she tries to make the healthier choice.

Soda is like a drug to my family so instead of purchasing those huge bottles like we used to we purchase the smaller bottles and drink one a day and even at that we sometimes don't drink it all. My point is that it all comes down to the right choices. Once you get on that food schedule it sticks like glue.

I'd like to get on a schedule so that I can get even better results. For example, I could eat some cereal in the morning that isn't too fattening and at lunch in school I could eat a simple sandwhich that they supply and for dinner I could eat something simple like rice (Our dinner is usually the most fattening meal of all so it's hard to get healthier there).

The book is called The 17 Day Diet.
