Topic: RE: FitBit??
I agree with you about wanting to be able to do things with my kids as they get older. I bought a bike a few years ago (I never learned to ride as a kid!) and my huband taught me to ride it. I'm still not super confident in traffic but I like riding it. I bought a bike that was better built for my size. I think I embarrassed the poor sales guy asking him things like weight limits etc but I wanted to make sure it wasn't going to fail me.
I had no idea Houston was on a 10 fattest cities list. I always think of the obesity epidemic as being equally Canadian and American but you're right there are a lot less buffets and smaller portions in restaurants here (although we're still eating too many calories I know).
I am equally guilty of driving everywhere. I think it's more because I want to "hide" in my vehicle than an aversion to walking!
Did you have a chance to call that Chronic Disease Management Program that they gave us the handout on? I tried looking up the website on the handout and it's a broken link. I'm going to call and get more information on it and where the exercise classes are offered etc. I think the more effort I put in to the things that they direct us towards the more likely they will be to select me for surgery.
