    Friend who was nicer when I was fat...

    I have a 6 1/2 month old and have been working really hard to get my body backand am close to having the abs I've always wanted. One of my good friends was much nicer to me when I was pregnant and weighed more. I feel frustrated and am not the type to make mean comments back to her. But, she...

    Which downloads are easiest to use at the gym?

    I have all of Cathe's DVD's and I'm trying to decide if there are any downloads that would be really be suited for use at the gym. I thought about Gym Styles or even Butts and Guts but I just can't decide and wasn't sure if there are any others that would be good for taking with me. Any ideas?

    Need a good credit card

    The Visa credit card my DH and I have doesn't earn us anything. I just think that if I'm going to have a credit card I might as well have one that we can get something from. I was thinking about something with flyer miles, or even Disney. Any suggestions?

    Breast Question

    I just had a baby on October 12 and did not nurse. There is a small lump on my nipple about the size of a pencil eraser. I was a tad concerned but thought maybe it was just from the changes of pregnancy even though I didn't nurse. Then tonight I pressed on the area and a small amount of blood...

    A friend of mine has now received 3 phone calls over the past 3 weeks from a man threatening to rape her and slit her throat and describes them in a MUCH more profane language than that. Anyway, she filed a police report and they told her they can't do much until he attacks her since they can't...

    Should I become a personal trainer?

    Recently my employers offered to pay for me to become a personal trainer. (FYI-I'm a dental hygienist so it isn't like I already work in the fitness industry) There is a NETA weekend workshop in my area on December 5-6. To be honest, I want this more for personal reasons and "just to have it"...

    Depression from Vicodin?

    To make a long story short, my dad just had major surgery for mesothelioma(cancer from asbestos exposure) last week and now he's in intense pain and he's on 2 Vicodin every 4 hours. He's normally a very upbeat person who wouldn't even think of giving up but he just told my mom today that he...

    Things people say - UGGGH!

    First off, I'm 20 weeks pregnant. I was at the gym this morning and I ran 3 miles (at 5.7 mph) and was doing triceps when a man came up to me and said, " You know my mother lost a baby at 7 months from over exertion." I just said, "Well, I see a perinatologist and they want me to workout to...

    Getting things started here. Hope everyone is doing well. Tomorrow is my ultrasound so I'm trying to think positive. I'm trying to stay off the internet because I tend to think I have an internet degree in medicine. It was at this point (9 1/2 weeks) that I found out that the heart rate...

    Why don't people think before they speak?

    I just don't get it. I had my 2nd mc in October and since then we've been TTC. And for some reason there's a girl I work with who is pregnant and for some reason all she wants to do around me is talk about how much she hates being pregnant. She says she was on the pill when she got pregnant so...

    As if I needed another reason to exercise...

    Hi Cathe, I had a DD in 2005 and did your workouts from pre-pregnancy until the day I delivered and never had any problems. Since then I've had 2 miscarriages. A few weeks ago I went to see a Maternal Fetal Specialist who told me that I have 2 blood disorders which cause my body to produce...
