So I started trying to lose my baby weight a few months ago. I asked you all for advice on a few things, from my basal rates to my calorie intake, and your advice was VERY helpful. I have so far lost…Continue
So I just recently (maybe 2 weeks) decided to change my lifestyle. I have always been active, but I decided to put a lot more effort into it and maybe get rid of this extra baby weight. On most days,…Continue
So I have gotten busy lately on losing weight. My son is 4 and I still haven't gotten back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm tired of always feeling gross. So I started an exercise and diet regimen.…Continue
"I've had 4 episodes of trigger finger. 3 eventually required surgery, which was extremely effective and very little pain afterwards. My last bout of trigger thumb, I started splinting early and really watched the repetitive or overuse of that…"
Just curious if any of you are currently dealing with trigger finger? I have had it for about a year now in my left hand (my writing hand). The pain comes and goes, usually hurts the worst at the end of a work day. I have a finger splint made by Active Innovations that has given me very little relief. Even pain meds do not help.

"I was ordered by my dietitian to carb load more so brown rice seemed to be the way to go to. and lots of fish :) It's good to see the dedication, Diabetes and sports can be difficult but I think it helps to maintain psychological control over…"
"I have a 2 hour Judo class every week. There is absolutely no way I could wear my pump during class w/o it getting broken, so I just take it off. I make sure I'm good before class, halfway through, and after. I correct with a bolus if I need…"
"Thanks Shane. I'll take that advice. I've got another tournament at the beginning of June, so I'll have a few to lose before then. I don't eat many carbs as it is and all of them I do consume are whole wheat. I'll try brown…"
"Hey, sorry to hear of your injury. I know this is a bit late, but maybe it will help for your next competition day. I found replacing all heavy carbohydrates such as bread, pasta, potatoes with a grain carbohydrate like brown rice helped me…"
"I was well on my way to making weight and decided to go to a BJJ class with a friend that had been asking me to go for a long time. Seemed like a good idea at the time. An extra workout, sweat some more weight off, etc. But it turned out to be a BAD…"
"They wouldn't have issues as long as they didn't outweigh me by more than 15 percent, according to AAU rules. So if I entered the Open class, I could fight someone lighter or heavier, but no girls ever enter the Open class. It's tough…"
"Yeah, that's a problem. I know it's probably not the ideal situation, but if you really want to compete, what does the next highest level look like for competition? I know rules are generally pretty tough about dropping to the next lowest,…"
"I totally understand. I'd much rather stay where I'm at and be at the higher weight class, even though I do want to keep losing, just not so much so fast. But here's the problem with staying where I am at: there are so few girls that…"
"Unfortunately, for short term weight loss, if you go the low-carb route, you'll probably have a case of Atkin's Flu for your competition. You'll cut a ton of glycogen and lose a ton of water weight.
I had this problem when I was doing…"
