I would feel the same way you do.   I would talk to your boss.   And I would NEVER go into somebodys home.  

I agree with the other posters and would take self defense. I would look into to Pepper spray and or a Taser as long as they are legal.  Please make sure if you decide to carry a taser you get proper training.

If you are still really uncomfortable and cannot switch to a safer position I would consider employement elsewhere.

In Italy they serve very thin crust pizza with salad greens (aruguala or mized greens) on top alot... it is sooooooo good! Some of them included meat like Procuitto..  I was just thinking earlier that I wanted to find an ultra thin pizza crust dough and make some.

Fitness Rebounding helps with cellulite, for real. Jan 08 2008

I have heard that before - trampoline/Rebounding was good for cellulite.  I love trampolines :O) 

I wonder if you do the jumpboard/trampoline on a pilates reformer if it has the same effect?  I do this once a week in my pilates class and it is so fun.

I have been to 2 of the places you mentioned Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.. THe land and area around Mazatlan was more dry and less trees ect.. Puerto Vallarta Seemed to have more jungle type area.   One time when i went I stayed in a placed called Yalapa(sp) You take a short boat trip from Pueto Vallarta and it is a village/town in the moutains and rocks with trees ect.. there were no cars. The people were very freindly.  There was one Bed and Breakfast hotel and I stayed there once.  the room were open air with beds that hung on ropes it was very rustic but it was very cool and lots of fun!
Weight Loss Weight Loss Without Flabby Skin Jan 08 2008
18:30 (UTC)
I am down 84 lbs.. I have been at it for almost exactly 2 years now.  This month is my 2 year aniversary at C-C. 

Honestly I lost a good chunk of my weight in the first year... about 60 lbs.  I did not do too much in the way of exercise in the first year either.  I have done pretty well skin wise not much in the way of loose skin.  I suppose everybody is different thou. 

I have really stepped up the exercise and the little bit of flabbyniess in my arms I had seems to have gone away.. I do reformer Pilates, eliptical and the treadmill now.

Weight Loss Has anyone lost a significant amount of weight? 60+? i have a question for you Jan 04 2008
19:35 (UTC)
I think it depends on the person and where they carry thier weight and how fast they lose it.   I have lost 84 lbs and I dont have the loose hanging skin .. I have lost slowly over the last 2 years.   I guess I consider myself lucky that I dont have it. 

My sister has lost quite a bit of weight rather rapidly and she has hanging skin on her legs and it seems to show in her face too. 

My husbands aunt has had Gastric Bypass and she has hanging skin and has considered an operation.

I am not a vegitarian.. but in your shoes that would bother me too.. if you are not used to eating meat your system can be sensitive to it.. besides... it's gross! 
Weight Loss I have only lost..... UPDATE!!!! Dec 21 2007
20:54 (UTC)
I would say keep with what you are doing... I would gradually work up to 30 minute work outs.  I think gradually adding in changes in diet and workouts has helped to keep it up. (at least for me anyway)

When I first started 2 years ago (254 lbs) I only lost 5lbs in the first 3 weeks.  then they weight started coming off at a 2 lbs a week for quite a while.. of course now that I am closer to goal it seems to be slow coming off again.
