I know that I am in here somewhere ;o) I am steadfast on my journey to a healthy weight and a fitter me!!!

Hi There.. I have used this site off and on for a few years and find it so beneficial (when I USE it). There is so much info & advice... the ability to track meals and exercise is one of the best benefits. Best of luck!

Hi there... I did read the book but lacked follow through and did not start the plan.. have you started it? how well is it working for you? BTW I too like the fact that Dolvett provides a work out regiment.

Joggin is jarring =
I am currently training for a 5K which will take place in around 4 weeks. Everytime I begin to jog, it jarrs my bladder. I'm having to stop more than once along my route and "find a bush" this is NOT going to be an option on my 5K route.. It's quite frustrating.. Any advice helps

WW points
I agree with Jacquie SK this is certainly a Weight Watchers Issue they are "protecting" their brand. I have to be honest It does not make me want to run right out and join WW or attend a meeting!
