UPDATE ~ I worked out awesomely tonight. I did 25 minutes of weight training (earning 2 AP’s) and did 30 minutes on Lippy (earning 2 AP’s and burned 309 calories), even though BOTH of my feet were completely numb. I am going right now to do a search on this foot thing. It’s driving me batty. I bought expensive ‘Nike Shox’ shoes, because they are MADE for this kind of activity, I have lowered the tension on the thing, anything I can think of…now I’m going to search for an answer…I will post if I find something that may be helpful to you all or someone you know…
Not a drop to report. Perfect maintain. Saturday night’s reverse raffle / alcohol consumption / dance-fest may have something to do with it.
Tina left me a comment about reducing the tension on Lippy to help with my foot numbness. I have done this. I actually changed it to a ‘1′ the lowest it goes and was on it for a longer period of time and yet the same thing happens with the numbness in my foot. And, yeah, I AM obsessed with burning calories…but the theory is, more calories burned and less calories taken in = weight loss, and I AM after all, here for weight loss…so I try to maximize the amount of calories that I burn in a period of time. I wouldn’t call that obsessive…I just try and get as much out of a workout as I can. I will never not post a comment by anyone with any constructive criticism…the only thing I would ever censor would be downright nasty personal comments, spam, that kind of stuff…so please feel free to keep commenting…anyone’s thoughts and ideas can really give me a boost and new ideas to try when something isn’t going quite right.
Thanks to you all for you comments and encouragement lately! It means alot that you are always here for me!
To bad nothing helps the numbness. I know other people with the same problem and haven’t heard a solution. What a pain! Stay healthy!
Hey Lisa, long time no talk to!
I don’t know if I mentioned to you that I’m taking a class to become a dietician / personal fitness trainer or not. But, here’s my advice on numbness: It has nothing to do with your shoes or the setting of your lippy.
I think you might have a deficiency in vitamin b12. It’s really very common. And, a bottle of b12 vitamins is fairly cheap. Here’s a good site with some info on it. Read the symptoms…
You might want to talk to your physician about it but it’s something I’ve been studying. You could probably research it on your own if you like. Just research b12 deficiencies. Just trying to help!
Oh my gosh, I have that exactly same problem with the feet thing…I swear, I can only handle that machine for 10-15 minutes before I have to get off…it’s NOT FAIR! I feel like if my feet would quit going numb, I could stay on alot longer.
GRRRR - I’ll be interested to know if you find a remedy - and good for you for working out - I’m having problems getting my butt moving these days
Hi Lisa…I just discovered your site tonight and it’s been great reading your blog. I have been trying to lose weight for 3 weeks now and I also do WATP. I am getting ready to check out your Resources links as I can never get too much inspiration. LOL Anyway, just wanted to let you know you have a new reader here.
You’re doing great! I check in from time to time to see how things are going with you. I admire your stick-to-it-ness! I am *still* trying to get motivated. Now I want to redesign my little site. This is an off-topic question, but I wondered if you knew of a good tutorial that would explain how to get the blog features into my site. I can do everything except that. If not, that’s alright…I’ll keep looking.
