    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I'm so frustrated right now! I'm injured shouldn't be typing and haven't been (Judy YAY on mammo) taking care of self excep thave been goin
    to pool 2-3 times a week and getting huge workouts in.


    I'm also doing a little bit of yoga on my off swim days.


    Man o man the celebrations just keep going. I have two more birthday celebrations 1 on sat with fam but no desert for me! AND that way I will keep outta the mess.


    I keep blowing it at night when I get the hungry horrors.


    any help ideas suggestions ..................I told husband (as long as he keep bringing in junk how could I loose weight and he just ignored me) so I've gotta be stronger than the junk!! he brings in!!
    I've tried everything I can think of to get him to quit and some stuff is in the basement that I can't easily always access. I'm just going to face the music he's an enabler! I have to look at this part differently that I ever have in the 35 years of marriage.


    I'm still 259 and when I go to the pool people stare at me! its so humilitating

    Hi Tweety keet
    Maybe you should try resting a bit and controlling the food more ...
    really look at the food choices and try to make better ones
    maybe think of the junk food as poison because it really is poison ...
    even thin people that eat junk are not healthy go for healthy and see what happens

    I have a husband like that too but I've learned that I want to get better and healthier for me, so I ignore the junk food. Instead I pick up a piece of fruit that I try to have available and drink a glass of water. Good luck HUGGS Jean
