Shannon, I know what you mean about doctors. I don’t even tell people about how I don’t go for all those mammograms and pap smears and wellness checks and everything else. I just avoid it and don’t mention it because people are always saying they can’t believe I don’t get checked!
As far as losing weight, a lot of my relatives have been really fat, so I don’t have any answers except to say whatever weight program you choose will probably need to be something you can enjoy and live with, even if it doesn’t go very fast. It’s so hard to exercise when you have young children at home, but yours will soon be in school and then you’ll have more opportunity.
