As for DH, it is his birthday Friday and our 10th anniversary on September 1st (also the 20th anniversary of the day we met for five minutes in the middle of nowhere ).

I have lots of good plans! The Y is the start of it - me time to the max!
I just did the math...27 years!! For the Green One and I.

But, a 10th Anniversary is Special! Anything special planned?

Back when I graduated from college I weighed around 150, now I'm up to 170 and wishing I still had the stamina and speed on the tennis court that I used to. Maybe I've just been enjoying all sorts of cookies too much, but around a month ago I decided to cut out all sweets from my diet except for 1 object, whatever it be a day. And so far I've lost 5lbs. Slow, but I think I'm getting there.

What a great way to start, and you still allow yourself that "little indulgence". Don't think of it as being slow.....look at it that you are training your system to not want the sweets long term.

For me it's all about portion size and having no control over it. I don't really eat rubbish but I do have an enormous appetite so tend to over eat on the healthy stuff.

My problem is that I always need something sweet after I eat. I cannot just stop at 1 bite. It's my biggest challenge. I started a new program at the gym today. It helps to stay accountable.

I have this issue too. I used to have quite an active job and would be on my feet somedays for 12 hours, trouble now is my appetite is the same but i'm not burning more than my intake to am having to think about what I eat.

I have been exercising 3-4 days a week. I need to get more serious about eating healthier.

i have finally just accepted the facts about my weight. at my age , i can't be very active. the old bones, just won't do it. do use my bike. anyway, just eating what i like, and trying not to eat to much of it. probably not a good idea to do severe diets anyway. that's my excuse, what's yours?

im cooking more at home and trying to teach my kids eating out is a treat not something that u have to eat everyday. I let my kids help me with some stuff and they like that because they are very involved. I lost 125lbs and since they see me smaller they want to be healthy as well.

I need something sweet at the end of each meal too! Sure, I'd like to lose the "last 5 pounds" but I'd rather eat and be happy! I started a new workout regimen a month and a half ago, more to get myself back in shape. I'll be taking a long trip soon, and would prefer to walk and explore instead of jumping into a cab. My old body couldn't handle walking 30 minutes, let alone the whole day! I feel a lot healthier now, but still eating my sweets!
