    7 AM: chai tea latte (vanilla soymilk, tazo chai tea bag, sometimes about 1.5 tbsp honey) snack (during class time): 1 bannana, 3 small apples (the home grown kind), or 2 oranges 3 PM: lunch: usually ramen, rice with salty korean veggies, sometimes rice and fish, or fast food (usually chinese take out and water bottle or burritos). i tend to overeat at this time because afterschool im starving!! 7 PM: rice and soup (korean food) i try to eat only a little bit, just enough so i wont feel terribly hungry, but often the food is so tasty that i get carried away and eat seconds :( 7 to 11 PM: hot herbal tea (chamomile, rose, lavendar, anything to stay warm and that helps to sleep or relax the digestive system. OK, im 5'2" and weight 125 lbs. that is overweight. my doctor said i should be under a 100 lbs but as long as its between 95-105 its acceptable and healthy. so it seems there is a lot wrong with my diet (i dont exersize, that could be another thing) but what? please help :(

  • How to deal with arthritis, overweight, and overall poor health?

    My mother has bad arthritis which is really painful on her fingers, neck and back, and knees.

    My mother has bad arthritis which is really painful on her fingers, neck and back, and knees. I think the only relief she gets is when my dad or I massage or pound her back and legs (gently) to ease up the blood flow (she complains her circulation is not good), Having the constant pain for many years has made her quite depressive and its hard sometimes because she started working as a real estate agent and has to work everyday. I really want to make the arthritis just disappear but I dont know how to help. She is about 170 lbs and 43 years old. At 5'3" that is quite overweight, she used to be 115 lbs and was always a slim woman until marriage. Because of her knees its impossible to run in the mornings. We have a pool but she can't swim, but we want to try that when the weather gets warmer. Otherwise, what are good exersizes to lose weight if you have bad knees? Also can you reccommend any remedies, lifestyle habits, or medical treatments to relieve arthritis? She also has slight asthma and recently (past 3 years) developed a kind of claustrophobia which can be problematic in the car. I think her health is really not doing well due to overload of stress, family problems, and being overweight. Please if you have any suggestions or you went through a similar experience tell me and hopefully I can help her somehow. -arthritis and rheumatism -stress -anxiety and difficult interpersonal relationships -overweight -amnesia, can't sleep at night -asthma -had Cesarean sections when having children, twice -premature aging and feels weak all the time
