    kaylaglenn answered the Question: How do you take measurement?

    Here's a good diagram - http://www.dummies.com/how-to...

    Most people take the waist measurement at or below the belly button, when the natural waist is actually an inch or two above on almost everybody!

    kaylaglenn answered the Question: Mints!

    Xylitol is an artificial sweetener, technically, but it's a pretty inoffensive one. It has a relatively low glycemic index, and a TON of benefits (including better dental health, reduced inflammation, etc). The best Xylitol mints are just pressed Xylitol with some mint oil for flavoring - no other ingredients. That's the route I'd go with, especially since it's CRAZY good for your teeth.

    I usually wait at least a half hour after a significant meal to work out, otherwise it's uncomfortable. If I haven't eaten in a couple of hours, I'll grab a small snack right before (so I don't crash). I'm sure there's some room for optimization and body hacking here, but I think if you do what's comfortable for you you'll be fine.

    Start small, and use it as an opportunity to explore your new neighborhood! I also have the MapMyRun app on my smartphone, and being able to see my running stats really makes my OCD side happy :-)
