At first, my husband thought this BTD was "crazy" and when I bought my rebounder he said "that was a real waste of money".  Little by little he noticed me changing (for the better I might add) & became curious so he agreed to try the BTD himself.  Now, he rebounds almost as much as I do & says that he thinks the rebounding has a lot to do with his weight loss.  He has lost about 6 pounds and his waist size has decreased.  The fat around his middle is visably reduced, his face is not puffy anymore and he does not have that phlegm in the morning that he used to have.  Just thought I'd share our progress with all of you.  Buy the way, Bill is Blood Type A.

Thanks Lola...I'm so pleased with his progress.  It's so nice to have him on board with me.  He doesn't call my way of eating wierd anymore...he says, he doesn't even need to know what's in his meals (he used to say "what kind of crazy food are you giving me now?!"...that I should just put the food in front of him and he'll eat questions asked.  What a wonderful turn-around for someone who was so against it.

willingness from his part is all you need.......
give him details whenever he s ready and is the first to ask, otherwise, just feed him right!
what a blessing!

That is wonderful. It is tough enough to change without getting a lot of negativity from one's partner.
So now you have to know what to feed yourself AND remember your husband's requirements as well. You have my admiration.

The reduction in mealtime stress is a great benefit.

May it only get better.

Yes the same boat literally and figuratively.  Sadly, our boat is having repair work done so we will not be able to be on her for the holiday.  Oh well, such is the nature of boating.  I hope you have a very nice holiday...Bill has to work today, so after I go to Mass, I'll just work around the house...and probably be posting on the BTD Forum as usual...xoxo

Suzanne is a champ!

Lola...That trip we took up the Hudson in July was when the damage took place.  That's where we were in that picture I emailed to you. The boat had to be hauled out of the water for the repair to the tune of $20,000.00 and then some!!! Gasp, gasp!!  Suposedly it's almost ready to be put back in the water but the season is also almost over so it's been quite a frustrating experience to say the least.  Yes, we do pull our boat for winter storage in October.  The boat is not set up to stay in the water for winter...important mechanical parts would freeze.  Thanks for asking.

Congratulations, Rex and Mr. Rex!
Welcome, Andrew!
Definition of the word "boat" = A hole in the water into which one throws money. ;)

OSuzanna...That is so true. My husband says B-O-A-T also means "Break-Out-Another-Thousand"...lately it seems as though that is true, at least for us recently.  Everytime Bill goes to see how the boat is coming along the repairman asks for "another thousand" to repair something else that he finds that needs fixing....I told Bill to stop going there....we'll go broke!

*LOL*  And here I thought that was true only of houses, cars & children....
A sense of humour helps - a lot!

Umm, is the boat "small stuff" or a "thing that matters"?

Thank you
I love your signature "Food for Thought, Super Beneficial 4 Alll Blood Types"

I was told this once by a wealthy German friend of mine from
Bremen, who owned a boat in Miami.......

he said the happiest day in a man s life is the day he buys a boat!!
and then he went on saying that the second best day in a man s life is
when he gets to sell that boat he bought!!!
note I didn t say it, he did!!! LOL

Wow!  No wonder he eats what's put in front of him (without question).  If this happened to our boat, my husband would be lucky to be fed!

Hopefully your freezer is full of fish.

The rebounder is a great exercise tool for the body's lymphatic system.

It is gentle for all individuals and can be combined in accordance with the suggested exercise recommendations for each blood group.

Great news in regards to both you and your husband's weight loss and changed state of health.

Andrew:  Yes, our boat is a thing that matters...Bill & I both love boating.  We hope to sell our house & live on our boat one day.  Possibly within the next year if we can swing it...we're considering it very seriously.
