    Just stopping by for a drive-by check-in. Dry January continues to go well. 13 days in and have not been tempted to get off the wagon yet. Holding the line weight-wise. The days are getting longer and I should be able to get some walking done in the evenings

    Planning a little caregiver R&R for the weekend. Looking forward to that.

    Keep up the good work, campers. Add me as a friend if you like.

    Hey @alteredsteve175

    I'm doing a dry January too. I cheated though; I started on Solstice. It has been surprisingly easy.

    I do pour myself one "cocktail" each afternoon. Splash of bitters then some tonic water and a squeeze of lime. Q tonic is a whopping 45 calories, so not an issue.

    Great job! Enjoy the R&R.

    Congratulations, Megan. I like your commitment - "I don't want to gain it back". Heard that. Lots of stories here from people who have lost substantial weight and then regained it.

    I lost 45 pounds five years ago and have managed to keep it off. Still logging my food and weighing myself every day. The support and mutual encouragement here at MFP helps me to stay on track.

    One of my MFP "Friends" posted this on her newsfeed today. I will probably spread it around because it is appropriate to so many people. Ignore the svelte model; normal people usually won't attain that physique.

    Which are your go-to hot springs? I know there's quite a few in your neighborhood. I always wanted to get up to Atlanta, and the one time I was near there the road was cerrado.

    44 years old. I've lost about 115 lbs depending on the day. Took me about two years. Can't believe I was so overweight for around 20 years. Great being in better shape in my 40s compared to my 20s though! Just got to start hitting the gym to try to tighten up loose skin.

    I went to Lava Hot Springs in eastern Idaho. It was enjoyable, but commercialized. I go to Kirkham near Lowman or some of the hot springs on the South Fork of the Salmon for a more primitive experience.
