Need Advice About Losing Weight

I have been doing the Richard Simmons Food mover and have lost 11 pounds, great! However, I've been doing it since December 1. I eat about 1200 calories a day usually alittle less I don't have a daily exercise routine, but I clean houses for 6 hours everyday. Someone told me that the richard Simmons plan is outdated & maybe that's why it's not working well. I have to agree that it's outdated alot of foods aren't in the books. It's frustrating! I need to lose like 50 lbs more. I am open to any & all suggestions. TIA

I work full-time, have a 2 year son and am 6 months pregnant with our second child. I just don't have the time or energy to keep up with the house cleaning!

Sheetrock Repair & Painting

Hello Moms, I am looking for someone to repair some cracks in our walls caused by foundation shifting and repainting, also. Does anyone have a recommendation? Someone you've got personal experience with, please. Also, while I'm at it, does anyone have a grout guy and a general carpenter? Our home has been suffering from neglect for too long. Now I'm just embarrassed by it! I live in Coppell, btw!! Thank you soooo much. P.

Exercise Options for Obese MIL with Bad Knees and Arthritis

My sweet mother-in-law's body is a mess. She is about 200 pounds overweight, diabetic, has arthritis in most of her joints, and her knees are so bad that her doctor said they are "bone on bone". She cannot have knee replacement surgery because of her weight--it would only last about a year the doctor says. I'm certain she is eating healthier than she used to, but she does not exercise--even walking hurts. I believe water aerobics would be the best thing for her; however, she says she has to do it in a pool that does not have stairs for...
