LOL! Way to go! Seriously, it will be so much easier for you if you and your husband are both eating the same way.

Mike, continued prayers for your friend.

whyme, I wouldn't say you fell off the wagon - maybe just dragging a foot! I think there are 3 stages to implementing a change, whether it's exercising or keeping your closet neat. In the first stage, I force myself to do it and don't really enjoy it. In the second stage, I've done it long enough that I feel guilty when I slip. At the third stage, I do it because I want to (if I don't exercise, I miss it and WANT to do it).

I purposefully left my exercise goal vague - an hour of extra movement a day (in my case it's been yard work, walking, yoga, interval workouts, stationery bicycle, aerobic workout/dancing, stair climbing). Every day is a slightly different mix depending on weather, my schedule, what I feel like.
