    Hi all, hope everyone had a wonderful day!

    Just thinking... Couldn't we call this group "the fun group" or "the acquired wisdom group" or even the "mature peeps group" instead of middle agers group? :smiley:

    Turned 40 in July. I'd offer the Scent of Ben Gay for the group title, but I'm a noob.

    Happy Hump Day!!

    It feels like this week is going by fast, maybe it's becuase I'm still making up from last week with work...and my kids being here and keeping them on task is...a handful. I actually literally growled at my son this morning because he hadn't plugged in his Chromebook last night. Ooops!! Some coffee will calm me down...right?

    Good Morning Everyone! :) The morning walks are always beautiful but getting COLD! I had to break out my old watch cap yesterday. Not quitting, though. I've got places to go and promises to keep! <3;)

    Morning, all! I hope everyone is having a great day.

    Small victory on this end - I do small group (now smaller and socially distanced) classes at my local gym and last night is the first time on this journey that I did all the push-ups as real push-ups and none on my knees! I’m a little proud of myself, despite how silly that sounds. The scale was good to me this morning too, but I hesitate to log it the day before Thanksgiving in fear of not seeing it again for a week after the pie tomorrow. Lol.

    Im feeling good today, I hope you all are too! 🤗

    Non-Scale Victories are a BIG DEAL! Congratulations!

    I'm 37 in a couple of weeks and the heaviest I have been. Lost of bunch of weight a few years ago doing MFP. Post-lung surgery and a few years down the line, here I am, wanting to really make it more sustainable and develop it into a healthy life style. Please feel free to add me. I'm a vegetarian (attempt to be vegan when I can) but would be happy to make friends and am really supportive encouraging! Good luck!

    Happy Wednesday all!

    I hit the 45lb mark today, and am officially now just "overweight" and not "obese". While happy I’m also like “but wait - I’m only half way, ugh”. I'm running out of steam. Lol. I need to figure out a small prize to encourage myself with to hit that 50lb mark by the end of the year. I got myself a ring for my 50% of the way there victory at 42lbs. It’s a lovely blue ring. I’m a little obsessed. Maybe my love of rings is talking here, but I’m thinking the 50lb mark deserves celebrating too!

    Anyone working towards fun prizes for various milestones?

    I used to do clothes as a prize for myself, but now I just want to fit BACK into my clothes, so...LOL. There's that I guess.

    A ring sounds awesome. Maybe I should do a massage or spa day when I hit my goal.
