I am still recovering from the lung issues I had going on before Christmas. It was a nasty bug! I was sick for weeks. Still using the inhaler so I haven't done much exercise yet. Plan on going to hot yoga soon.
Dee, I found that as the weight came off and I exercised more, I became stronger and more energetic. I am still a bit draggy now, but I am plugging away and trying to get back into a groove at the gym.
I, like you, had a major chest infection before Christmas. I was really close to having pneumonia but was too bullheaded to go to the doctor until a week before Christmas. The kids had come into town from college the week before and I thought I was "too busy." I have never felt that weak in my life, and it took me a good month to get the gumption to make regular gym visits.
I am telling myself it will take time and don't give up!
Did either of you having any issues with weakness when you were on LAWL before? ESP with exercising?
I didnt not. I always felt very healthy when I did LAWL.
I did Ideal Protein and that made me feel very weak. Atkins does the same thing to me too. But with LAWL I felt healthy, strong and clear headed.
I am going to do my first Take-Off period tomorrow.
I lost 5 1/2 lbs on Fast Forward, then two of those pounds came back in the following week, while my clothes got looser. I guess it was water weight. I weighed today and the two pounds are gone, bringing me back to the original 5 1/2 lb loss. I guess I'll take that for two weeks, even though I was hoping for an extra pound or two down.
I bought two more bottles of Take-Off juice on ebay, rather than ordering another $100 kit with the bars. I made sure they had the same date on them as the bottles I bought from Costco (3/13). I got them from a seller for $49.99 with free shipping, so that wasn't bad. I like the Grab1 bars better and they were formulated to be close to the LAWL bars.
I do need to step up my workouts. I will be heading off to the gym in a few minutes to get in some exercise.
I went down 4 then another 1 then yesterday, I gained 1 and today I gained another. I also figure it's from the water loss from the FF so I hope I at least stay the same or lose for tomorrow. And Tracy, you are right about the daily weighing. I just don't think I can help myself. Even if I gain a little bit, I like to keep an eye on it so it doesn't go out of control.
Tracy, does costco online USA still have the deal on? Costco in Canada doesn't. It was just a 2 week deal. It's still cheaper than the LAWL online though.
