I know what you mean. When it is fresh from the oven, I could eat piece after piece of it!

We do make our own, it is slightly better for you than going out for pizza but not much. We even tried making a vegetarian one once. It turned out good but then the next time we made it we were back to pepperoni. I'm just really weak when it comes to pizza.

I love pizza. Have you tried making your own? That way, you can slowly make it more and more healthy (start with a bit of whole grain flour, then add more and more as time goes on). Also, you can begin adding more and more veggies as you 'forget' they are there.

It kinda works that way with my hubby. He wants to lose the weight but doesn't always eat like he should. We enable each other. If one of us wants something that's not so good for us for dinner the other will go we shouldn't be eating that. However if it sounds good we end up eating it whether we should or not. Pepperoni pizza is a real problem in our house.

I just saw a sparkfriend of mine had written a blog about this. The suggestions in the comment sections were all about continuing what she was doing, making healthy changes in herself, and one day, perhaps her husband would join her.

Sometimes, we are a leader by example.

Also, he may not know how important it is. Maybe mentioning off-handedly how the changes you are making are making you feel, talking positively about your new changes, will spark an interest in him as well? Does he wish to start a family too, at this point? Maybe pointing out, if he does, that his health effects the chances of conceiving, and the health of the baby as well.

And maybe when you have those days when you wish to 'complain' if your plan is not going well, or you are tired of counting calories or exercising, vent your feelings on here instead of to him.
emoticon

Just keep doing what you are doing, and he may join in one day. Unfortunately, we can't change anyone but ourselves, but if you are the one who does the cooking, you know you can influence the eating he does at least at home.

It may take time, but your influence may help!

I have a question for everyone. I am working on becoming more healthy so that I can begin a family and I have not been successful with getting my husband to join me. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him involved to make it a family change.

I also got a nice walk in with my DH before dinner. I wish he wanted to walk more often. It's nice out today so I'm hoping I can get him to do it again.

OK confession time. I didn't do well yesterday. Not to make excuses but it was my birthday so I splurged a little. I'm feeling good today going to be right on track. Did a little sword fighting on the Wii and got my heart rate up. Feeling pretty good.

That's great news, Sam! What a relief.

Laura - how old is the granddaughter? What do you play on the Wii?

My brother has one - we did the dance/singing combo last time. What fun!

Great news Sam!

Today I am having my granddaughter over. We will probably play on the Wii and once again try to get in the yard and teach her how to throw the frisbee. Then maybe a movie tonight, not sure what yet.

What a fun weekend, Laura!

Sam - I am relieved that your son is safe. Hope he gets his electricity back soon - that gets old very fast, I'm sure!

Wow. Full swing in the school year already. All the best with the new busy-ness.

We all went to visit my brother and his family yesterday. They have their big camper set up more or less permanently at an RV resort. It was great fun!

Glad to hear your son is alright.
I had a good weekend. We had "date night" on Friday. Stay at home "date night" that is. We cooked out and played on the wii and just spent the evening together. Saturday we babysat my 6 week old grandson and watched the Lions game on their big screen t.v. Sunday we went to my great niece's 5th birthday party. It was a nice weekend.
Today I'm going out to lunch with my girlfriend. Still not sure where.

Hello everyone.

Well, school is in full swing. I've been back for 3 weeks - kids 2 1/2 weeks. So things are getting busy.

My hubby and I went out dancing with our studio last night. It was fun. It was hard to get out of the house on a Friday night, but we were glad we did.

We've been watching the hurricane info on the Weather Channel much of the day - Our son lives in Virginia Beach. We recognized some of the areas being shown on tv. He says he's far enough inland at a friend's house. They are without electric, but otherwise OK. His apartment is right on Cheasepeak Bay. I am so thankful for cell phones....

Sam
