    TPE vs. TPR bands

    Makes sense; thanks. I'll check them out and if they still have the TPR ones I'll order the TPEs from your site - before the sale ends! Thanks for the quick reply. -Marie

    TPE vs. TPR bands

    Hi Cathe, I apologize if this has been addressed before. I remember reading that you now offer TPE bands, which were what you used in Travel Fit, as opposed to the TPR bands, which I purchased at Olympia Sports and really did not like at all. My question is, are the new TPE bands available at...

    thanks for the blast from the past!

    Hi Cathe! I just wanted to say thanks for the trip down memory lane! I was just browsing the postings from the last couple weeks (I don't get on the forums as often as I'd like so I end up reading lots of old ones whenever I can) and found your posting about favorite Christmas carols. I was so...

    can you shrink a bathing suit?

    Thanks for the suggestion. This bathing suit is a very distinct pattern with unusual colors. I think when it first came out, there were matching solid separates, but now they don't even list those as an option (the solids must have sold out). I do this to myself all the time; I wait til the end...

    Whole grain vs. whole wheat

    Crap! x( I just started eating some Kashi products thinking I was finally getting better with my eating, and now I hear this! What a bummer. I've been eating their Go Lean Crunch cereal and their TLC chewy granola bars (flax almond honey or something like that). Are all their products bad or...

    can you shrink a bathing suit?

    I bought a bathing suit that I love online, and the tops are too big (I bought a bikini top and a tankini top). The bottom is perfect, which pretty much never happens, so I really want to keep it. When I went online to try to order the tops in a smaller size, of course they're sold out. Do you...

    skin care for oily skin

    Thanks, Kay--I actually use Cetaphil, too! I'm wondering about what moisturizer and other products Cathe might use. I use Cetaphil for cleansing but Origins products for toning, moisturizing, etc. They've worked well for me, but I think I need a change. I'm hoping Cathe replies; I'd love to know...

    skin care for oily skin

    Hi, Cathe: May I ask what skin care products you use? I think I remember you posting recently that the reason your skin was "glowing" in some of the road trip shots was due to your skin's natural oiliness. I'm the same age as you, and I have oily skin as well. I've been using Origins products...

    limited workout time - fat loss

    Hi, Cathe-- For the next couple months, I'm only going to be able to work out 4 times a week max. Fat loss is my main goal, but I don't want to neglect the weights. I was thinking that I would do 2 circuit workouts and 2 cardio workouts--is that a good way to work toward fat loss with this...

    Consecutive Circuit Workouts

    Thanks for asking this, Amy. I've been wondering the same thing myself! Hopefully Cathe will let us know her thoughts on this. -Marie:-)

    one legged squats

    Hi, guys--can you explain what you mean by "just keeping the other leg lifted"? I experience the same problem in my back leg when I put it back on the high step and would like to try your modification, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Thanks!:-) -Marie

    OK.... i just have to ask this....

    RE: Gifts Beautifully said, Heather, and I agree 100%. I only wish you had put a "spoiler" alert on this post--I've been trying to avoid finding out what the surprise was! Oh well; no worries. I probably wouldn't have been able to resist peeking at that post for much longer anyway!:P -Marie

    anyone else not know their order #?

    You know what? Being disorganized about filing has its benefits! After writing that message, I rifled through this huge pile of stuff I have here on my desk, a lot of which is old online receipts. Lo and behold, there's my receipt from my pre-order! I'm order #10243 (ordered on 9/24/05). Woohoo...

    anyone else not know their order #?

    I'm 99% positive I pre-ordered but I can't find my original confirmation email from SNM (and I NEVER delete stuff like that) and now I'm panicking. I checked the Easy Track and nothing came up. I think I pre-ordered pretty early, too. I'm not very organized with my files, so trying to find my...

    Update - 4-13-06

    Oh my gosh, Cathe--I can't believe it--we have the exact same problem! I sent you a message the other day ("better workout when injured"); I had it in my right knee 8 years ago and, like you, had to have arthroscopic surgery to find out what was wrong (symptoms were exactly like a torn meniscus...

    better workout when injured?

    Thanks for the reply, Cathe. I actually tried Low Max last week using a 4" step, and it was too much. Last night, before I sent my message to you, I had tried it with just a towel. This morning, my knee was telling me that even this was too much. You're absolutely right; each injury is so...
