    Does anyone else have this problem?

    2
    I find that when I am either loosing weight or exercising my partner manages to put me off, with little things.  Like he doesnt say anything but doesnt like it when I do my morning dvd, or my weight goes down.  I just wondered what people do in this position, I cant join a slimming class, no money to do so! So what do people do, how do you all cope?

    Come one, come all.  For over a week now, "Irma-Geddon" has plagued Central Florida and I've lost track of healthy habits. With a new-found appreciation for living with electricity, I am promising myself to make better use of my time with modern conveniences.  I wasn't home for much of the past week or so and did not weigh in.  No idea how much weight I've packed on eating pizza and things not...

For those over 350 pounds, 9 servings are recommended.2. Whole grains: Choose whole...

    Have you ever had “one of those mornings” — where everything seemed to go wrong? For example, maybe you overslept, ran late getting out of the house, didn’t have time for breakfast, and then got stuck in traffic for an hour. Or maybe a different “terrible morning” came to your mind just now.Whatever your version may be, though… we’ve all experienced that kind of morning.And it can...
