Hello Everyone!

Welcome to our discussion. We are a great community - both men and women
- and provide excellent support and motivation for your personal weight
loss journey.

This is not a group. This is an ongoing discussion of support and motivation and you can easily participate. There is no "joining" to do. Just post a comment! happy That's all it takes. Go to the last - most current page (600 and counting)and write a comment - whatever you feel like saying, and click the REPLY button. You will be welcomed by other people posting and hopefully you will return often. I try to send a welcoming message within a week of your first post.

After posting, you can find your way back by checking your "COMMUNITY"
tab, then on the "MY DISCUSSIONS" listing, and all the DISCUSSIONS you
have posted to will show up. If you click on the STAR to the right of the
DISCUSSIONS, that selects them as your favorites. Then you can click on
the Titles of the DISCUSSIONS and doing that will return you to the most
current posting on the DISCUSSIONS thread.


GOALS and IDEAS for daily posts (Not mandatory)

Monday - Check In (how are you doing? Had any successes or struggles this week-end?)

Tuesday - Goals (do you have any Goals you want to update us?)

Wednesday - Wishes (what do you wish? It can be weight related or not, can be realistic or not)

Thursday - Truth (got anything you need to fess up to or get off your chest?)

Friday - Fitness (what are you doing to get fit? How are you preparing for weekend eating?

Saturday - Success (what have you accomplished; focus on the positive of the week, NSV=non scale victories)

Sunday - Sharing (tell us a little about yourself....update your personal life)


Welcome to each and every one of you as you start this journey - Robin

    Got it. Thought I'd been thrown in the deep end and couldn't swim there for a little while!! Didn't want to lose you guys.

    Long may we prosper.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I am so frustrated. I can only allowed to send 5 PM's every 10 minutes - at that rate it will take me forever to contact everyone in the group. Any volunteers? I've contacted Karenleona, Patty Nava, Toots Anderson, you guys, LaurieK, Naceto, Heather Ryan.

    You could just cut and paste the message I sent you and say you're forwarding it for me pretty please? :sad:

    Hi Thanks for the heads up. I will find a few more members as well. Will post when I check my friends list.

    That moderator was not very nice.

    I am surprised it was a problem.

    I did not understand the comment that the moderator made before the thread was locked down so I am grateful that Robin messaged me.
    glad to see it will be continuing

    MFP Management is working on putting a link in the locked thread so people can find this thread. Oh boy, I really stepped into it when I decided to put that CLOSED statement at the top of the thread. Someone complained and all H-E-L-L broke loose. The mngmt was very polite about it in their PM to me, but their action was very swift! I am also not to use the term Moderator, since I am not an official one. So I am now your humble facilitator. :laugh:

    a link would be helpful cause i went back to the thread and it was just locked with no info on why or where to go after
    i beleive the thread had been closed before and there was no problem but i can see the point now that i have figured out the difference between forums and groups.....i am a bit slow on the uptake some days :bigsmile:
  • vickimiethvickimieth Posts: 333Member Posts: 333Member
    ok, so occasionally MFP admin can be sticks-in-the-mud.
    Thanks for getting the word out, Robin!
  • Lauriek70Lauriek70 Posts: 2,099Member Member Posts: 2,099Member Member

  • HyzaarcHyzaarc Posts: 67Member Member Posts: 67Member Member
    Just got the email on my phone, Hadn't paid much attention lately to the boards except at 3AM when I'm "Bored" and by that I mean having a case of insomnia.

    Good to know that the thread is available now.
  • Lauriek70Lauriek70 Posts: 2,099Member Member Posts: 2,099Member Member
    Robin will go to page 7 thanks for the names so I don't repeat either.

    It's very late. Why don't we just close the group? I loved that it was open but sometimes...

  • RobinsEggRobinsEgg Posts: 3,702Member Member Posts: 3,702Member Member
    I'm a bit confused. Is this a thread to make a group for people who need to lose over 100 lbs.? If so, I would love to be apart of it!

    Hi - this is a thread - not a group - anyone is welcome to make comments - you are welcome to participate. Most people here have 100 lbs or more to lose and the first post at the top of Page One are guidelines to follow for each day of the week, if you are unsure what to post about.
  • RobinsEggRobinsEgg Posts: 3,702Member Member Posts: 3,702Member Member
    Update on names I've done Hyzaarc, DoomCakes, trhjr06, Monarchris, OperationNorm, Beachgirl613, Believe1213, Vanimelda, LMZimmer.

    BigAug - you think you're tired of this! :grumble: I have done this for 2 years now. I would go to a Group format but YOUSE PEOPLE leave me!!!! I need fresh blood every once in a while!!! :smokin:
  • Lauriek70Lauriek70 Posts: 2,099Member Member Posts: 2,099Member Member

    I just sent Heather Ryan, Lizmil, vickimieth, Janak2004, tungstem93m Beieve 1213, tbrp and vanimelda.

  • RobinsEggRobinsEgg Posts: 3,702Member Member Posts: 3,702Member Member

  • ravenlaramieravenlaramie Posts: 165Member Posts: 165Member
    Markin my place here for future reference. Feeling like crap at the moment though so I'm probably going to crash. If I'm up and about tomorrow and more pms need to be sent out, I'll be happy to help out.
