    I have just recently been placed on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) due to my ovaries being removed. I am a little devastated with all the negative reading I have been doing about weight gain. So, we (my husband is supportive) have decided to adopt a healthier eating and exercising lifestyle. My questions is: For those of you who have done this, how did you start?

    I am planning on methodically going through the kitchen and purging the bad by replacing it with good, preparing snacking foods (like veggies) ahead of time so that they are readily available. Also, we are committing to a walk a day and aerobic exercise. (We are fairly active anyway).

    Any other suggestions that have worked for any of you?
