WOE: low carb - 1400 calories
I lose better around 1400-1600 calories a day. My thyroid slows down when I do too low carb and too low calories.

Great progress! I incorporate some of the Callanetics exercises into my weight lifting and love them!

I am still not able to perform as many sessions as I did before I went back to work. Soon I will have completed 100 hours.

I am maintaining my loss of 25 inches (believe me, I am checking every 3 days).

I checked the scales this morning and I have lost another 3 lbs. Total lbs lost since February is 15. Still not where I want to be, but I will accept it.

I think that since I have my hormones back in balance, the weight is slowly starting to leave.

I am fighting a bad cold at the moment but will try to do another session tonight.

I have had a bad cold for the last 2 weeks.

Every time I tried to exercise I would start coughing.

Only completed 4 hours of Callanetics for June.

Luckily, I am maintaining the 25 inches that I have lost previously.

I will do better in July.

I have performed 3 hours of Callanetics Evolution so far for July. I plan to do another session tonight.

Maintaining my inches lost.

I had 1 session of strength training. I overdid it and hurt my left bicep. I have not done any strength training for at least 1 month. I started the session with the 10 lb weights & probably should have used lower weights.

My left arm was in severe pain for 3 days.

Still using the progesterone cream. It has worked wonders for me.

Purchased Super Callanetics about 1 week ago.

It just arrived today.

All I can say is "wow". These exercises kicked me big time.

I had to quit after the 6 hip & behind exercises. I was exhausted.

I got to the open & close and had to stop.

I will try again in a couple of days.

95 total hours completed.

August is always a busy month for me with back-to-school and such.

There are never enough hours in the day.

I have only completed 3 sessions of Super Callanetics so far this month.

I hope to do another session tonight.

Luckily, I am maintaining my loss.

It's the middle of September already....how depressing.

I have been working exclusively with Super Callanetics for a while.

Not completing as many sessions as I would like. The sessions exhaust me.

These exercises are not for the beginner.

On the average, I have only been doing 1 session per week since June. (I know I need to do better.)

I started taking CLA capsules last week. I plan to include coconut-oil capsules sometime this week (when they arrive). I tried the actual oil and it made me gag. (ugh)

I am thankful that I am maintaining my prior loss. Still am not losing the weight that I would like to....

I think that I will try a session of Evolution tonight. (Those standing leg lifts are killers if you don't do them regularly.)


1 year anniversary of starting Callanetics is coming up soon.

It has been roughly 1 year since I started Callanetics.

In that year, I have completed 100 hours and have lost over 29 inches.


I feel better than I did 20 years ago.

My knees no longer ache all the time and when they start up, I just do a session of Callanetics and they feel better.

My 12/14 clothes are getting baggy on me, but I will wait before I buy more.

I have been taking coconut-oil supplements for about the last two weeks. I have not seen any noticeable results yet, but I will give it a little more time.

I take so many supplements right now that I rattle when I walk. HA HA

Am having TOM problems again. I wish the final end would come soon.

I started taking M-A-C-A supplements, red clover and increased the progest cream.

I cannot seem to get my hormones correctly balanced. I refuse to take synthetic hormones. The closest hormonal GYN is 60 miles away & my insurance won't cover it.



My family is healthy. MY DH loves me. (we just celebrated our 30th anniversary) Life is good.

I finally received my test results from the lab work that was performed 1 month ago.

I am jumping for joy at the good news.

Cholesterol (total) 126
Triglycerides 117
Glucose 90
A1c 6.1

One year ago they were: 198, 176, 135, 6.4

Three years ago they were: 185, 378, 145, 7.2

My LDL has always been okay but my HDL has always been too low.

This time, both are good.


I feel better today and I have Callanetics to thank for this change.

Maybe I can be taken off my meds on my next visit.

Well, I haven't been around for awhile. And...I had temporarily stopped doing Callanetics.

They doubled by workload @ work and I was having trouble adjusting to the time change.

I am trying to get back on schedule. I started up the Callanetics again with Evo and boy where my legs and gluteus sore for 2 days.

I always feel so much better when I have done my Callanetics.

I will do another session tonight.

Luckily, I have not lost any progress that was made.

I am wearing boots for the first time in many years thanks to Callan.

My calves have slimmed down enough to wear them.

Wow...it's 2013 already.

I have not been performing as many Callanetic sessions as I should.

I am still maintaining my prior loss.

I am only performing about 1 session per week average.

I switch off between 10/10, Evolution and Super.

My menopause problems are all gone (at least I hope so).

No TOM for 4 months now.
