The Lounge How much should one sacrifice for another's happiness/wellbeing? Mar 16 2011
18:40 (UTC)

There comes a time where you need to help yourself first. There is a fine-line. Give what you can without sacrificing yourself in the process. Most often you can help by steering them in the right direction so other services can help. If you don't look at the big picture and the end results, they will keep taking and suck you dry! That mentally is not good for you or them. I have learned sometimes by helping someone, you let them fall; you can be there to help them up.....Don't get sucked in....

Health & Support Insane Dehydration? Nov 18 2010

Agree with all the posts. I had the same thing. It got so bad that I had to go to ER. I never thought I was dehydrated but the Dr. told me if I didn't start drinking more water he would put me in the Hospital!

He also said stay away from any caffeine. If you drink something with caffeine your body need three cups of water to replace the dehydrating affect that caffeine has on your system.

I was shocked to hear this because I love my Espresso!

You can be dehydrated and not know it. I was, and had the same symptoms as you. Stay away from caffeine and drink at least eight cups of water a day.

Could be many much caffeine, not enough water throughout the day....My advice is to see your Doctor.

I know how you feel. I am an expert at Yo-yo dieting. I have been able to think of it as a life-style rather than a diet. Just when I mess up is when I think of losing weight as a diet! I want more "eat to live" and not "live to eat!"

Recipes Favourite low -calorie recipe site? Sep 30 2010

My favorite spot is You can put the calorie count in and search for good recipes. It will only bring up the recipes that are with in the count. You can also have low fat, low sodium, and protein counts! I love the site! is another favorite of mine as well.

Weight Loss The failure of calories in, calories out? Sep 08 2010
18:55 (UTC)

I know exactly what you are saying. Thyroid issues myself I can relate to eating 1000 cals a day and not lose a pound! I added Protein Powder I found at the GNC Store. It's Amplified WheyBolic 60 Extreme Protein Powder. I have one shake a day and I lose weight. Without the shake I can't lose a pound! It cost money but it's well worth it!

Vegetarian Eggs as binding? Is there something else? Aug 31 2010

Original Post by acooper7989:

I use EnerG egg replacer and it has never done me wrong.

You use something like 1-1 1/2 teaspoons for every egg you are replacing.

 Looks very easy to use without adding calories! Where can I get it other than on-line? Equals 100 eggs; that's a lot of eggs!

Health & Support Thyroid Concern Aug 31 2010

I had same symptoms. Blood tests were normal as well. I had a die test to see how my thyroid was working and they found the nodules, not cancerous. This could be your problem. They removed most of my thyroid and I take medication for the rest of my life. I hope yours is nothing to worry about. I know how afraid you are right now. I have been there too!

Health & Support Hypothyroidism? Aug 31 2010

Low body temp is a good indicator as well. You should go to your Dr. since he is the one to diagnose and medicate you. Could it be stress? I know stress plays a big part in ones system. I have Hypothyroidism and I am taking medication. I still find it difficult to lose weight because of stress. And I am not a stress eater. I count every calorie I put into my mouth. It's a science of checks and balances with low-thyroid problems!

Thank you! I thought I could replace the eggs with fruits and veggies but I was not sure. I am going to try this.
