I've had issues with arch and heel pain since I was 150lbs and about 31-32% body fat. While I wasn't obese, I was overweight then. I'm currently 170lbs and 34-35% body fat according to calipers. I'm considered obese. I was 182lbs and 36% body fat back in early Febuary. Due to my low arches on my feet, if I stand for a long period of time, I get sharp and stabbing pain in my arches, heels, balls of my feet, and sometimes it extends to my knees and shins. In 2020- early 2022, it only did so in my… read more
Thank you so much for the suggestions! I was considering getting some insole supports for my shoes, as I always wear gym shoes everyday. I honestly think the issue is because of my lower arches, but… read more
I think they have an impact on each other, since i have started my peri-menopause, full of medical condition started to pop up and my physician think that also.
I have not been on this site for a while, but have missed it. My mom was sick, and passed away in January of this year. I am not good AT ALL at loving myself. I love others, and want nothing but good for them, but I tend to sabotage myself. I would like to keep in touch with others who might be feeling the same way. I am 53, weigh 240, and I’m only 5’3” tall. I feel like I’m older than I really am. I am premenopausal, and that’s not helping me any. I want to be positive for… read more

Hi everyone--I was doing great on my weight loss then vacation and a pulled muscle affected me--I know I have gained a decent amount back. I am ready to resume my plan (that was working before) this Monday--May 1st. But I have been too scared to weigh myself this last month. Do I get on the scale Monday--devasted at how much I gained (but knowing where I am beginning at) or start my good habits again and wait a week or two until I have lost some weight first? Please help!
I don't have scales🤔. If I want to measure my progress I go to a friend who has scales and check my work there. Then I have some support from the friend either way.
In good spirits, sad, energized, tired, bored, sick? 🙂
I hope you feel better soon--sorry to hear you are sick.
