All vinegar is made by fermenting an alcoholic beverage with acetic acid bacteria. No alcohol remains. I'm not an expert on Ignite, but if you're allowed vinegar at all, I don't see that it matters which sort (I'm presuming the prohibition in on alcohol.)
That is true, but there can be large weight fluctuations from weight of water retained and varying amounts of food "in transit". If you only weigh weekly you run the risk of one of those large up or down variations hitting on your weigh in day and either being discouraged (or incorrectly encouraged) by an irrelevant change.
For me, the solution was using The Hacker's Diet and a similar app called TrendWeight which implements the same idea for Fitbit users. You weigh every day (same time, clothes and conditions as closely as you can manage.) The program will plot a trend line through the daily weights which removes the noise of the daily fluctuations.
Although I like many of the ideas in The Hacker's Diet, you do not have to buy into that to use its online trend line tool.

I found the Yin Yoga to be challenging, but doable.

I did one round of TB then went to Cardio Sculpt. Each of the CS workouts has a standard, modified (easier) and more intense version. You can choose the version and pace to challenge yourself.
I just finished CS and now am doing the one week long Recover program, then will do the TBT for a change and see how that goes. It also has three levels of intensity.
I experimented with my iPhone -- Try this:
From the DB app on your iPad, open Profile then turn on "Support Airplay Audio". Now start the workout. You should get a dialog box asking "Are you trying to Airplay to audio speakers?" Select "Yes".

Conventional wisdom is no more than 2 pounds per week. You're talking about 1.5 lbs/wk so in the safe but difficult range. It gets harder as you approach your target weight, but 40 pounds in 52 weeks seems possible.
Remember that to maintain that new lower weight you're going to need a permanent adjustment in diet so be sure if setting up an aggressive plan for loss that it is sustainable. Consider that if you started eating now the diet necessary to maintain your ultimate goal, you would lose weight (albeit gradually) and eventually taper in to your desired weight.
Just my $0.02 w/o jumping into the religious wars and what constitutes a good diet ;D
I'm using a Wahoo Fitness HRM and it works fine. You need one that links to your smartphone via Bluetooth Smart/LE.

Not very much. Less than 2 grams per 100 grams. Wikipedia is your friend:
Mine is Wahoo brand but the Bluetooth HRMs are all pretty similar. There are sensor pads (electronics) in the strap so don't put it in the washing machine. The icons on mine indicate to hand wash in 30 degree water (86 degrees F). Of course, unsnap the strap from the central module first:
I'd come across that Net Nugget too. The National Institute of Health did a study showing moderate Ibuprofen use did not affect muscle growth:
Often requested, not possible at the moment, as far as I know.
I'd like that too, but not possible at the moment, as far as I know.
I'm in the same boat and took the staff recommendation to try Cardio Sculpt next. I just finished the second week. It is certainly challenging, but each workout has one of the presenters doing a modified (easier) version. So, by following the easier version where I need to and not worrying if my pace is not always up to theirs I am making it through the sessions and improving.
