    3 Fat Chicks on a Diet Weight Loss Community
    22 Nov 2014 | 7:14 am
    This was a biggie for me... It felt so GREAT knowing that nothing at Lane Bryant or Torrid or JCP Plus department would fit me, but at the same time, I felt LOST! I walked out of the store after trying on a dozen things (and shedding a few tears) bc everything was too big. I left and wandered the mall, too embarrassed to go into "normal" stores, feeling I didn't belong there either. I didn't know where to go to buy clothes. All of my adult years, plus sizes were my ONLY option. And when you only have a couple stores you can go to, your style choices are basically made for you. I had…

    3 Fat Chicks on a Diet Weight Loss Community
    22 Nov 2014 | 8:23 am
    After 6 years of up and down I finally did it. This morning I am 100.5 pounds lighter than my high of 243. It is the last 30 that were the hardest but I finally did it. I'm now 6.5 pounds away from being in the "healthy" BMI range and I'm hoping to get there by 12/23 which is when I have scheduled my Lipo/Tummy Tuck. Good luck to everyone as we enter the difficult season for dieting. Looking forward to a healthy 2015.

I came across this old one on Atkins and like it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epxp_Viq484 In short, low carb works because eating lots of protein makes you feel full which means you consume less calories than you normally would. It's nothing to do with ketosis or the efficiency of turning fats and proteins to energy versus that of carbs or anything to do with this BS we keep hearing about eating lots of fat (which, they find, actually make you eat more food, not less compared to a low fat diet).

    Every now and then, we all want to lose some weight. It would be easier to lose weight, if we understood our bodies better. Women and men’s bodies are physiologically different. So, we have different fat storage patterns, hormones, psychology and a lot more. All of these affect the way women gain weight and so...Read More

  • Longer work hours for moms mean less sleep, higher BMIs for preschoolers

    20 Nov 2014 | 12:39 pm
    A link between moms' employment and overweight/obesity in preschoolers has been found by researchers. The study investigated links between mothers' employment status and their children's weight over time, exploring the impact of potential mediators, such as children's sleep and dietary habits, the amount of time they spent watching TV and family mealtime routines.
  • Derivative of vitamin B3 prevents liver cancer in mice

    20 Nov 2014 | 9:32 am
    The first mouse model that faithfully reproduces the steps of human HCC development has been developed by researchers. The results of the study indicate that diets rich in nicotinamide riboside, a derivative of vitamin B3, protect these mice from developing HCC in its most initial stage, when genotoxic stress is damaging cellular DNA. They also show a curative effect of the diet in those mice that had previously developed the disease.
  • Weight, eating habits in Parkinson's disease

    20 Nov 2014 | 5:21 am
    A review of the scientific literature on Parkinson’s disease shows that even the non-motor symptoms associated with the disease can contribute to the changes in body weight seen in patients (including those subjected to deep brain stimulation). Among the factors affecting eating habits and body weight there could be, for example, an impaired ability to derive pleasure from food and changes in motivation. These are important findings which can help to understand how to reduce these effects of Parkinson’s that exacerbate an already negative clinical situation.

    Almost one third of male adolescents inaccurately perceive their weight. This can influence their eating habits and, consequently, their health, according to a study conducted with 600 teenage boys from Barcelona and surrounding areas. Up to 25% of the boys reported trying to lose or control their weight in the past year.

  • Are Your Kids Over-Fortified? Too Much of a Good Thing Puts Their Health at Risk

    Millions of well-intentioned American parents, unbeknownst to them, are over-fortifying their kids with too many nutrients. That’s according to a report published earlier this year by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

  • Food Addiction - It is real.

    22 Nov 2014 | 5:31 am
    Why is food addiction so rarely talked about when it comes to weight loss? There so many of us who suffer with this addiction and have come to believe that it is because we lack "motivation" or have no "will-power". Would you tell someone who is quitting smoking that when they fail they have no "will-power"? Or would you think that they actually have a real addiction to nicotene? What about an alcoholic? Do they lack will-power when they all off the wagon? Or is it more than that? I'm so tired of heavy people being treated like we are lazy, unmotivated slugs that…

    20 Nov 2014 | 11:35 pm
    I've gone over it and over it in my mind... not just this week, but for years... decades, even. But twenty years ago when I wondered "will it work?" in regards to a weight loss strategy, I had nothing much to base my opinions on. I was new at being fat, and new at losing it. I didn't have a background in dieting aside from watching my mother weave in and out of Weight Watchers meetings, losing and gaining the same 30 pounds while eating frozen WW pasta meals for dinner and then breaking down into a bag of potato chips every so often (sound familiar? Except for the WW part...) I didn't have…
  • Eating Then and Now, and Motivation

    19 Nov 2014 | 11:03 am
    This might sound funny, but the last few days I have felt more "interested" in losing weight again. Yeah, that sounds pretty crazy coming from a weight loss blogger. But you've probably noticed my real apathy the last few months for actual weight loss. I've been ambivalent about it. Sure, I've wanted to be thinner and wished I wasn't so fat. But even when I felt motivated to make some changes, they've been more about health, thyroid function, and feeling better than about seeing a lower weight on the scale. I dunno why that is. Maybe part of me is just so used to being obese that I can settle…

    So as I said before... hellish nightmare. That's what it feels like.I was sitting here the other night remembering how it used to be... how at first I was so excited and dedicated and worked and fought to lose weight. I remember how, the first time down the hell scale, it was so liberating and wondrous as the pounds fell off. Every ten pounds was a whole new level of freedom. I was thinking about back when I finally got to a point when mopping was easier, raking leaves was fun, and I actually *enjoyed* breaking a sweat for housecleaning and yardwork. I remember blogging about what a wonderful…

    I woke up this morning and somehow, the reality hit me right in the face. As I sat on the edge of my bed, about to get up, I looked across the room at the mirrored closet doors... the ones I used to take my "progress pictures" in... and saw someone I have not seen in years. I don't know why it is but when I lost the weight and weighed 175 pounds I would look in the mirror and see myself as still severely obese... well over 200. Then over time as I regained the weight I stopped seeing that and started seeing myself as 190 or so in the mirror. It's like my brain has some kind of time delay of…

    Lately I have been really slacking about what I eat (well, it feels like slacking to me, compared to AIP). I explained the way I eat in my last blog post... that hasn't changed... but honestly, those 'bad days' have too much inflammatory stuff in them and I am feeling it. In some ways I justify in my mind that having one gluten free waffle, or scrambled eggs, or gluten free oatmeal for breakfast is okay... but I know that I feel better when I am not eating grains like that. Having some peanut butter on an apple, or some nuts for a snack, or a black decaf coffee may seem like reasonable…

    October started out with a visit to Italy. First I stayed with Julia for an Up & Running workathon. This included a wee photo shoot to redo all the photos and videos in our running courses. I’ve been busting to get them done professionally for years. Most of the originals were clumsily shot on my old iPhone 3 in the hallway of an Edinburgh hotel room, on the very first day I met Julia in person. We kept stopping and starting as the cleaner made her way in and out of the rooms with the vacuum cleaner. They didn’t quite match my vision of perfection but if we’d…

I thought my name was daggy and annoying. I longed to be a Jenny, Tracy or Melissa and be spared the indignity of being nicknamed “Shauny Prawn”. But thanks to the invention of the internet I now know there’s twenty gazillion fellow Shauna’s, and many Shauna Reid’s too. There is one living in Canada. I know this because I often get her emails. Because of a missing hyphen or full stop or similar, I hear about Canadian Shauna Reid’s PTA meetings,…

But much has changed since 2009 so it was time to pass the brown baton. Apparently the new owners plan to do all the Someday things – replace the aged kitchen, bathroom, stairs… and put in an en-suite! Looks like they have no need for a bedroom beer cellar. We paid a visit to finalise things and camped out in the living room for old times’ sake. We narrowed down our favourite Brown House memories. Mine: the time Gareth was…

  • How to Beat a Stomach Bug

    22 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    There are so many unpleasant procedures (think dentist and ob-gyn visits) that seem like a party when compared to the symptoms of a stomach bug. From stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, to the muscle aches, headaches, and fever, these bugs are just dreadful. Although the actual vomiting element only lasts a day, but sometimes up to three, a stomach virus can leave you feeling tired, achy, and with digestive and intestinal troubles for up to 10 days after. A stomach bug really wrecks a person, and it can take over a week until you begin to eating your normal diet. Unfortunately the…

  • Saturday Stories: Shirtstorm, Ebola, Israel, and PE

    22 Nov 2014 | 2:30 am
    Phil Plait in Slate does a masterful job explaining why shirtstorm matters. Helen Branswell in Scientific American covers the rather dreary topic of how winning stopping Ebola in Africa might cruelly mean not developing a vaccine. A great read from Lee Smith in Tablet on Israel, land for peace, and the challenges and responsibilities of a democracy. Here's a fabulous video shared by Steve Crandall on the value of PE in schools (hint, it's not about weight) Other than call to action for PPP [And if you don't follow me on Twitter or Facebook, my piece this week in US News and World Report…

  • More Depressing News on School Based PE and Kids

    20 Nov 2014 | 2:30 am
    The "Activity Stat" hypothesis suggests that kids are pre-programmed to get a certain amount of exercise each day. If they're more active during their school day they'll be less active after it's done. The theory was first described in England back in 2011 when objectively measured activity (via accelerometers) from children attending 3 schools with widely varying amounts of prescribed PE, was shown to be roughly equivalent. Well a few weeks ago, these findings were confirmed in Denmark where researchers compared the objectively measured activity of children in "sport schools" and regular…

    Winter 1996, 2nd Issue, The AuricleThe year was 1996. We were in 2nd year medical school at the University of Toronto and one of us, I can't remember which, came up with the bright idea of having a "Cheesy Moustache Competition" with the proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. 40 or so of us in first and second year participated and I still have the photographic proof. I placed 2nd in the competition (my friend Tony won) dressed in tight leather pants and a black mesh t-shirt, and I promised that were I to hit $3,000 in my Movember fundraising, that I'd post a pic in celebration.
  • How to Get a Black Belt in Healthy Living

    18 Nov 2014 | 2:30 am
    Find a healthy living dojo (virtual, paper, person, or peer) with a sensei you trust. Go to as many classes as you can fit into your life. Start with the basics. Practice, practice, practice. Oh, and you're going to fall down a lot, that's inevitable. Getting back up again, that's one of the most important skills to cultivate. Black belts aren't things you can get in a hurry. Just because you can picture what a jumping spinning hook kick looks like, the odds of you being able to do one because you can see it in your mind's eye are pretty low. Skill building doesn't work that way. So maybe cut…

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:00 am
    I have run over a dozen half marathons in the last 5 years. I’ve written about a lot of them in my blog,  Running For My Life, and annoyed my friends with the constant tales from my training and from the races themselves. I’ve encouraged many to become runners and by others been told that if I bring up the running thing one more time they’re disowning me. But one time, I did something in a half that I’d never done before. I WALKED the whole thing. It wasn’t because I wasn’t trained – I was and could have easily done the distance but my friend, Sara, had an IT band that was…

  • Home Insurance Changes to Flood Protection

    Tim Currie

    As you know, Ontario has seen a significant increase in the amount of water damage claims in both commercial and personal insurance policies over the last few years. The damage caused by last summer’s flooding was record setting. With changing weather patterns, there have been some significant changes in the water damage coverages offered by many insurance companies. Many of the changes have reduced the available coverage for damage to your home as a result of over-land flooding and/or sewer back up. It’s important to note that you may be eligible for subsidies (depending upon where you…

    The top safety issues we face in the car insurance industry have traditionally been to do with texting while driving or being under the influence when behind the wheel. In other words: all forms of distracted driving. While these areas certainly deserve much of our attention, there is still a serious concern around fatigue and its impact on both safety and car insurance rates in Ontario. In fact, Ontario is considered to be at a higher risk for offense in the area of driver fatigue. About 20% of fatal accidents in Canada are related to driver fatigue (Transport Canada).

The first few days were me realizing how much more activity I needed to purposely add to my day to hit the steps goal. I hit between 8,000 and 10,000 steps in those first few days and just ran out of time to get more. It made me realize a few adjustments would be needed to get the right amount of steps each day.

I’ve visited and passed this area more times than I can count, but finally took time to check out this park I’ve heard so much about. Burgess Falls is a series of falls actually. The first falls: The trail up is not only NOT paved, it’s not a particularly “clean” trail: In addition to a million (or so) tree roots and a…

  • Organic BLT Dogs

    21 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    When I lived in Hollywood,  ended their nights by heading straight for bacon wrapped hot dogs served in the seedy carts that wheeled along Hollywood Boulevard. These were affectionately called “danger dogs” because you knew there was a certain risk involved in the street food. People were willing to accept that risk for a flavorful late night taste of bacon. If culinary roulette just wasn’t your thing, then your other choice was to head to the iconic Mel’s Diner for a meal. I decided to recreate these memories of my Los Angeles people watching in a dish, but…
  • Organic Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich

    20 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    This sandwich got rave reviews from both my husband and toddler. They gobbled them right up for lunch. Thankfully, this Organic Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwich is a healthier version of the classic chicken salad sandwich by swapping out the mayo for organic avocado and yogurt. It still has the creaminess and tanginess you get with mayonnaise, but only a fraction of the calories. I saved money on this organic meal by making the chicken myself. The easy, slow cooker organic chicken recipe can be found here. If you’re looking to save even more, stock up on organic bread when it’s on…
  • Organic Belgian Waffles with Raspberries

    19 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    My love of breakfast foods must have started as a child. I remember going out with my family to get breakfast and ordering a big Belgian waffle towering with whipped cream and strawberries. I still gravitate towards the sweet breakfast foods now, as an adult. I created Organic Belgian Waffles with Raspberries as an homage to the diner breakfast of my childhood, but this version is all grown up. Gone is the excess of whipped cream, and in it’s place is fresh organic raspberries on top of an organic waffle that is crispy yet fluffy at the same time. Breakfasts like this are so easy to…

    Another Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and it’s time to consider what we’re cooking up for our friends and family.

Ready in under 30 minutes, easy and kid-friendly!When I was a kid, my Mom's friend Debbie often had my brother and I over for dinner because, well she lived right upstairs from us.

  • Thai Chicken Peanut Lettuce Tacos

    18 Nov 2014 | 5:17 am
    Not your ordinary tacos – these chicken tacos are spicy and exotic, made with my light peanut sauce which I make with PB2 (powdered peanut butter) sriracha, ginger and spices. To balance out the spice, I chose to serve these in crisp cool lettuce wraps but tortillas would work great too!A few months ago while visiting Asheville, NC with my friend Sandy (such a great food scene there!) we stopped for lunch at the White Duck Taco Shop, a creative taco joint where we had Bulgogi Tacos, Bangkok Shrimp Tacos and Duck with Mole Tacos.What do food bloggers talk about while eating lunch together?

    This creamy cauliflower soup is so quick and easy to make, you can whip up any night of the week! It's the perfect light soup if you want to have this as a first course, and leftovers are perfect for lunch.I love cooking with leeks, they have a sweet, delicate flavor which is perfect for this soup. Before using leeks, it is essential to wash them well, as dirt usually collects between the layers.

  • Butternut Stuffed Turkey Tenderloin with Cranberries and Pecans

    13 Nov 2014 | 8:52 am
    Turkey tenderloins stuffed with a sweet and savory filling of butternut squash, cranberries, sage and pecans – this tastes like Thanksgiving, all wrapped up in one dish! Honestly, the photos don't do this justice. I was having one of those days that I couldn't take a decent photo, but the turkey – it's amazing! And the leftovers were just as good the next day for lunch. Turkey tenderloins (the tender long strip of white meat hidden under the turkey breast) are very tender and excellent for weeknight cooking. Because it's so lean, you want to be sure you don't overcook…

Last night Grandma and Grandpa let the kids stay up to wait for us and they were so happy when we got home. There’s nothing cuter than a 3-year-old saying he missed you. I nearly melted. This morning it was back to the grind. I decided not to go to the gym just yet. Not only did I want to give myself one more day to recover but I’ve been battling some kind of stomach virus that started in Vegas. I blogged a bit about it on GreenLiteBites while sharing a broth I made with…

    I promise a complete and full recap of the marathon ASAP, but right now I’m in fly-by mode as I soak up my last day in Vegas with The Husband. So here are just a few shots and thoughts. First, me in the room getting ready. I decided to put my number on the my leg so I could take my long sleeves off if I got too hot. Good decision, as the shirt came off around mile 2. :) Me at the start with my friend Jimmy who agreed to sacrifice his marathon time and stay with me the whole time. I look terrified, and it was totally NOT planned. lmao. While waiting I took this panoramic of the start…

    Helloooo from Vegas! Yesterday morning The Husband and I got up  bright and early for our flight. Those of you who’ve been reading for some time may know these are two feats not easily made. Not only did he wake up before 6 a.m. he agreed to fly! I wrote a bit more about that over on TheUnworldlyTravelers — click here. We’re staying at Paris and it’s wonderful! We spent the day just hanging out, napping, walking, exploring and, well eating! I didn’t take food photos as I’m giving myself a small break but there are two things I have to share. The first is…

  • The Truth About Weight Loss Branding

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:59 am
    There seems to be a growing trend at the moment whereby people are offering advice starting with “The Truth About“. Whether it is fad diets, exercise plans, weight loss, carbohydrates, belly fat or abdominal muscles, there seems to be a website or ebook dedicated to teach us the truth about it. However, from reviewing much of this information it is quite clear that the only truth is that they are all just regurgitating the same old advice and information and then wrapping it up in a new package. Basically, people are branding weight loss advice. Naked Weight Loss It is our belief…
  • No Proof That Weight Loss Programs Work

    16 Nov 2014 | 9:54 am
    Researchers from University of Pennsylvania found that most weight loss programs offer no real proof that they work. In their study they discovered that with the exception of Weight Watchers, no other program could prove that their methods resulted in weight loss. The American market alone for weight loss programs is between $1 and $2 billion per year – that is a lot of cash being wasted. Although there are many ways to lose weight, from cabbage soup diets and detox fasts to intensive cardio training and military boot camps, the basic rules remain the same. Weight loss is not rocket…

Now I can end my hunt for them as I love these wide calf rain boots from Jileon. They have both wide (up to 18″) and extra wide calf (up to 21″) options and several fun styles. I actually think the extra wide calf might go a little larger than that as the sides are adjustable, however the structure of the rubber might look a little different if…
  • Holiday Separates

    13 Nov 2014 | 8:55 pm
    Oh holidays! They are one big reason to celebrate and be with people you love. Even though I’m going through this glitch in my life right now, you better believe I’m going to go to some holiday functions. Heck, maybe I’ll even throw a party! The problem with holiday parties is that you sometimes see the same people at them. This makes wearing the same dress twice a little bit risky. In looking at IGIGI’s Luxe Elegance collection, they had some pretty cocktail dresses, but these separates caught my eye. Kyle Top c/o IGIGI Mira Maxi Ponte Skirt c/o IGIGI Patent…

    How do you say goodbye to someone you never thought you could live without? Someone that you don’t want to go? I’ve been with him since the week after I turned 20. We just worked immediately. It was easy, built on mutual respect, and there were never any doubts that we were meant to be together forever. At least on my part. Experiencing loss is never easy. I’ve experienced it with losing my mom, but this kind of loss is different: more painful in some ways, and easier in others. There isn’t mortal finality like with death, but there is the loss of what you thought…

  • 3 Weight-Loss Beverages You Actually Enjoy

    12 Aug 2014 | 2:56 am

So we swap sugary sodas for blended fruit smoothies or (better yet) run some vegetables through the juicer. The problem – at least in my opinion – with advice like this, is that it focuses too much on what we shouldn’t be doing. It restricts us.
