    I agree that men are paying closer attention to their health. I think it's a matter of finances, especially since so many of us just don't have the money or insurance to get sick. It's logical to take care of ourselves to prevent ourselves from getting into the position of having to pay more. I think men are motivated that way.

    I do not know what it takes to get each of us to take a look at what we are bringing home and feeding ourselves and our families, but right now I have a new freedom to take control of what I bring into the house and what I cook. I am doing whole grains, mostly vegetarian and trying to go for much more fresh fruit and vegetables. It all takes time, day after day to apply what I learn and try to remember...........the more I go on the site and chart my intake, the better I do at cooking what is better for all of us.

    Thank you for this link and the input. I believe it is so true that a lot of times men just don't talk about things. I know personally that when I started my own weight loss journey, I wasn't talking to many people at all about it. Now that I've joined Sparkpeople, I think I talk too much sometimes! That is probably a good thing because it gets others talking as well.

The biggest thing is that this isn't a diet - it's a chosen lifestyle that is actually FOR life!

    When my husband is unemployed, which is regularly, I tend to pig out MORE and he eats less. I'm a pure-bred emotional overeater! He is an emotional starver.

    I like that Chris mentioned the link between the recession and people taking back control of their health. There was an article about that very topic in a recent issue of Women's Health, and I am very much inclined to agree! I think that not only is exercising/ losing weight/ training for a race a way to take control, but also without full-time employment, most of the excuses not to work out are gone!
