I got an email asking for local size-friendly fitness classes...

Let me share my response to that request for local size-friendly fitness classes with all of you. You can gather one or two or more friends who are also interested in a plus size fitness class.  Then your group can gather a set of DVDs for plus size fitness, set a time for your own personal group to meet and workout with the DVD playing on someone’s laptop!  You would have your own little 6” tall instructor just for your own group.  Check out this site for full info on plus size fitness DVDs:    Make sure to check Classes & Events in case there are local classes in your area.

If you know of other size-friendly fitness resources out there that I can add to this comprehensive resource (and my  - EMAIL ME PLEASE!!! 

If you do not already have a few friends who are interested, them you could make a or advertise on and gather in some church social hall or something.  I fill my group personal trainings from these two resources.  There are more people out there than you think ... if you cast your net wide enough. These friend finders are valuable for gathering any kind of size-friendly group you want.  And remember  for connecting the plus size world and building support for your healthy lifestyle.

Here is a sweet relish with NO HFCS (high fructose corn syrup)

This first part is not life changing.  It is just a solution to a little problem that I wanted to share.  I have been trying to reduce the amount of high fructose corn syrup in my diet.  So I went looking for a sweet relish without it.  THAT is hard to find.  Finally, I hit the mother load.   Wickles Pickles has a whole line of condiments that are HDCS Free, Gluten Free, and Kosher.  

I focus on one little thing at a time.  That is how I improve my healthy lifestyle.  Once I do the problem solving to make that little change I give it some time until the change is incorporated into my life on 'auto pilot'.  This way, I don't have to think about it or work at it.  I have just become a person with that little thing in my life.  Soon I will be a person with a shopping list that has less HFCS.  Then I will have a kitchen with less HFCS in it.  And I will be ready to move on to the next thing in my lifestyle that I want to tweak.

OK, that part about problem solving 'one little thing at a time' until it runs on auto pilot ... and then moving on to the next improvement ... THAT is life changing!  That is the way you comfortably build your healthy lifestyle!
