Q: Hello Erika, How are you? I respect you for giving out the information that you have for us women. I just had a few questions for you. Every year I say I am going to eat right and lose weight and I don't. I have gained so much weight through the years that now every time I do get on the treadmill my knees hurt. They hurt so bad that when I lay down at night they throb inside. I know it has to do with the excess weight I have gained in my legs and around my knees. What kind of exercise do you suggest for this and did you go through this also?
Q: I'm rather unsure of how to go about some target areas like these sagging arms. How I can go about resolving those problem areas?
Q: Erika, you said something about having an internal tape that plays negative thoughts over and over in your head...
Q: I can tell it's working because I feel active....but how long does it take to start actually seeing a difference? I'm not seeing anything!
Q: After hitting age 38 everything did not work the same as it did. So now my motivation is not as strong. YES...I want to lose weight but my motivation SUCKS!!!
Q: Erika, I screwed up. I had a stressful week, and this weekend I went on a sugar bender! And when I woke up, I realized I'd put on 3 whole pounds! WTF?? I'm so ashamed of myself and I want to get back on track right away. Do you have any advice to help me undo this mess I've done?
Q: I feel so overwhelmed by everybody's advice that I'm like UGH!! So my first question is: How do I know which way is up?
Q: I come home late from work, around 12 in the morning and I always crave rice! I will eat bowls of plain rice with soy sauce or whatever I can find in the kitchen! I'm pretty sure this is the cause for my weight gain. I've tried preparing meals ahead of time but I will still reach for the rice AFTER i eat the planned meal. Help :(
Q: Erika help!!!! i love my man but i need him to workout with me! he just doesn't enjoy it the way that i do and it worries me because i want us to grow old and healthy together!
Q: Can you help me understand what it means to be healthy while pregnant?
Q: How many times a week do you need to do each type of workout to have it be worthwhile? I don't want to waste my money if...
Q: I not only hit my goal, but I am 15lbs below it...and now I don't know what to do! I don't know what to focus on! I don't know how to handle the attention! Help!
Q: Erika, I'm 300+ right now and I really want to get in better shape but I know I can't run and I'm starting to get scared. What if the zombies come and I can't save myself! Ha ha ha just kidding, but I need to know. Can I really walk off the weight?
Q: I was ill, had to stop eating for a few weeks, and I lost 39lbs...now that I'm no longer sick, I'm scared to start eating again!
Q: Have you already answered the question of "What do I do in the gym when I'm 300lbs?". What are the do's and don't do's when you are a newbie to working out?
Q: Erika! Did you give up carbs to lose the weight before? Are you giving up carbs to lose your baby weight?
So many of you talked about how you'd 'fallen off the wagon,' and how you regretted it. Here's how to hop back on the wagon, and stay there.
