Which of the following would you wish for?

The power to stop time
Winning the lottery
A traffic-stopping body
The ability to read minds
Landing my dream job

I wouldn't want time to stop, but it sure could slow down!

Not sure exactly what he is, if I am watching what I eat he tells me I can't do it that way, if I am exercising, he tells me I need to watch what I eat. Then he brings home trigger foods with no idea why I don't want them in the house. But he is really sweet about the way he says it. Funny guy.

Significant other is a LITTLE bit jealous since he "fell off the wagon" but still encouraging and proud of the losses I've achieved. So far 40 pounds!

Do you think your significant other is jealous of your weight loss or fitness improvements?

No significant other. In past relationships, it would have been opposite, i.e., look your best!

My husband has never been jealous of me about anything, quite the opposite. He was born with the superiority gene.

I really don't look at fitness magazines!
Maybe once in a blue moon (sitting in the doctor's office) I'll browse, but I've found most of them geared more to the younger person! Read that as more agile, better balanced, more flexible. I'm afraid if I tried some of those positions I might not get up myself! emoticon

Thankfully, not often, but when I do, it's usually after tomato-based foods, sweets (ice cream) and surprisingly, not enough water.

Cathy: I call all those past gym fees "donations". When I joined I should have asked for a donations tax receipt and said: "Here's your money. You'll probably never see me again!" But...next time will be different! :)

I don't belong to a gym. I have everything I need right here at home. . .
elliptical, mini-trampoline, walking trails outside, free weights, plus
I can choose my workout from dvds and/or SparkPeople videos.
I've set my house & furniture up for my own version of 'geriatric zumba'

But, the REAL question for me is - what would be most likely to make me skip a workout.

And my answer would be the same as yours - Oh, forget it.

PS I'm 1.5 hours away from it but I didn't join even when it was in view of my house, because I know me. :) Over the years, I paid a lot of gym fees that I didn't take advantage of.
