  1. Most likely yes..that is usually just in case of an allergy. The warning is there to cover their butts
  2. Hi there, I have been in kind of a workout rut. I am wanting to take on p90x for something new, to hopefully help me past this weight loss plateau, and get more fit, but there is a pretty major issue. I cant do a single pushup, chinup, or pullup lol. What do you guys recommend to do to build up the strength to be able to do these things? Thanks!
  3. I honestly haven't been paying much attention to the way my muscles have been looking lately. I have been really bummed out because the scale hasn't gone down a single pound for about 4 months now. I have about at least 50 more pounds to lose, and am so ready to be thin and fit! But anyways, my boyfriend told me that my arms looked great while I was lifting today, and decided to snap a pic. I am really proud of this picture lol! Just wish it didn't look like a giant bingo arm when not flexing lmao..but I will get there in due time!!!!! http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y252/morbidgrotesque/gallery-896436780jpg-1.jpg
  4. I havnt been able to find one with iodine either What I do is take a regular vegan multi + an iodine supp once every few days. I got mine on amazon as Norwegian kelp
  5. You are such an inspiration!!!!! I hope to have that kind of stamina some day lol!! Great work!!!!!!!!
  6. Thank you so much for the responses, this is such a great community!! I am going to get him to sign up here
  7. Thanks for the responses! Baby Hercules- His reasons are animal cruelty and overall health and well being. It was his idea, but on my part there was a lot of encouragement. He was vegetarian for a few years a while back. He is ready to leave his old life behind, yet has some hesitations. Will take things slow, and see how it goes Today seems to be a lot better for him, so that is a plus. He has been getting a lot of good information from this site, so he feels even better about doing it.
  8. When my boyfriend first started trying a vegetarian diet, he ended up stopping and going back to eating meat, because his stomach was constantly hurting. He would have gas all day long, and it would really hurt him. He says he feels it up to his chest, and no medicines or anything helps. I have him trying vegan diet for 30 days, and its day 5 and the same thing is happening. It is not just a bit more gas, but more the painful kind, making him not even want to leave the house. He is miserable, saying he feels dizzy now on top of it. I really want to see him succeed at eating this way, but we are having trouble. I don't think its a gluten sensitivity or anything because he eats a lot of pasta and such on a meat eating diet. In a typical day he will eat fruit, lots of veggies, quinoa, beans, almond milk, cereal, rice/hemp protein shakes, whole wheat pasta, sometimes whole grain pancakes, bit of peanut butter, almonds, etc Thanks for reading!!
  9. I just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for this opportunity. The prize package is amazing, filled with great stuff!! I am so appreciative and thankful. I also loved the personal thank you note in there, Robert! You rock!! Thanks again!!
  10. I'm not sure if its the reason you are losing weight. I am not knowledgeable enough to post about that, but I just wanted to chime in that I try to avoid soy as much as I can too. It is really really hard. If you look on the back of almost everything " Contains soy" Soy lecithin, soy oil, soy protein etc etc. Its insane how much soy is in almost everything. I just wanted to let you know this, since when I first started trying to cut it out, I wasn't aware exactly how much darn soy products is in almost everything!! Good luck, and if you ever want to talk soy free recipes, let me know lol!
  11. I really enjoy protein powder. I dont think it would hurt to try some. I do a mix of hemp, pea and brown rice. There are a lot of different kinds available online and in stores. I find cheapest places are online, and places like amazon.
  12. Thank you!!! I havnt had a chance to get back yet, going to start tomorrow again. I did however convince my mother and her boyfriend to join the gym too
  13. I'm so amazingly sore today!! I feel like my calfs are deeply bruised, and going to explode lol. It is GREAT having my couple friends joining my bf and I at the gym. Great support, and mutual motivation. I worked so hard today, at the end of it just for fun, we decided to do a sprint race. During the middle, my legs gave out on me, and I fell so hard lmao. My friend also rolled on the floor...laughing Was a great time!!

  14. Had a decent work out today. Was a bit sporadic. My couple friends who joined had their free assessment with LA fitness today, so that took a while. I did one as well and will post the results later. I am also pretty bummed, was hoping to be able to sign up for personal training sessions, but man are they expensive. I would be paying more for sessions in a month, than what my rent costs. Wish I could afford, but will do my best without! In short, did step aerobics for a few minutes, stairmaster for 10 minutes, bench presses, squats and jump roping.
  15. I am choosing this site! Nothing has motivated me more than this. It keeps me staying accountable for my goals, and I am always learning something new. It is a GREAT resource!
