At the top of the thread, to the right of the title, you'll hopefully see a little star. Click on that star. Then, when you are looking for your thread, when you come to the Community Page, at the upper right, you'll see a little bell and a star. The bell may have a number by it and that will tell you if there have been new posts in the starred conversations. Or you can just click on the star and see the names of the threads you are tracking.
Does that make sense?

@muggs7 I'm turning 63 this month. Oh my goodness. It's starting to stick. I'm an older person who needs to steer clear of health issues. Diabetes run in my family also. I do feel women's weight clings more than men.
I hope to get out hiking while it's not too hot in Texas to capture some beautiful sunsets like I see.@trekkie123 I can't imagine starting over in a new city let alone a new state. It's hard making new friends esp now with the pandemic fears. But hopefully later.
My weight seems to have hit a plateau on 1200 calories with 20-30 minutes of exercise 3-4 a week. I must find a new mindset. I am stuck at 168-169. My goal is 158 for now. Any sugg. Is 4 weeks too short?

@AnnPT77 Thank you so much for the non-exercise ideas link! Wow, I never even thought of that extra possibility to assist me. Well yeah, I could walk every hour since I sit mostly at a desk. I could, the big one, go to bed on time! I snack late and head to bed late since my two college grad sons stay up late. So I head to my room around 10 and turn off the light at 11ish and get up at 6:30. So I will change that. I'll be 63 this month. Can't be hanging out with them like I'm, lol, 40. I had them late, 35 and 37 actually. So yeah, that was very informative. Yes, 4 weeks is pretty quick but I know it can be done. A few years ago I was a camp nurse for 2 weeks at a Jewish camp for 250 kids plus 200 staff. They only served vegetarian food. The kitchen closed at 7 p.m. The other nurse and I took morning runs for 30-45 min. to take a break from the camp running/walking down the highway outside the camp entrance. I lost 13 lbs in 10 days. So I was trying to mimic that. I went from 172 to 159 in 10 days. That was I think the year of 2014. Sorry, to ramble, my age showing. Yes, I too have sort of a dateline to keep. A medical exam for life ins. I want to be within my BMI. So thanks for the tips! Keep em coming!
