Thanks, Steve! I bought a scale yesterday. I have lost my first two pounds, and my hubby has lost his first three!! I promise not to get discouraged if the scale doesn't move. I am going to KEEP ON doing what I've been doing. It's tough because I have bursitis in my hips so when I walk or exercise, they REALLY hurt. But I'm hoping glucosomine condroitin (sp???) will fix that!

Everything you said is ultra positive. In addition to the mutual support you get to celebrate successes together. That could help with the one problem.

I went to the doctor, and they made me step on the scale.....which I had not done in the 4 years since my hysterectomy (I'm now 47). I had gained 42 pounds since my husband and I met in 2003. It was then I realized that in the past 4 years, is when the intimacy problems started in my marriage. And that my weight gain could be part of the problem, along with the fact that I have zero hormones. So, I asked the doctor to put me on hormones, and I started dieting, and walking. I have a very sedentary job, and I am hypoglycemic, so if I don't start somewhere, the weight will continue to pile on. And my husband is on this journey with me! So, if we can get ourselves back to being healthy, I think it will do wonders for our marriage and our own self-esteem.
