    If I were to set up a video chat on messenger video for Friday evening at 7pm ET, would anyone want to get together and just chat? Might be a nice way to end the week! Thoughts??

    I'm in :) This would be the first time in all the years on MFP that I'd see other members, which would be so cool! What do you use for messenger chat. Does MFP have a video messaging service?

    Hi @Susanna527 I have an iPad and I'll just go in about ten til 7 and start a video chat and send you guys the link. It's just Messenger video, that's all I know. I used it a lot for my virtual piano lessons when I was teaching. Perhaps I should use Zoom since there will be multiple people logging in...this might be trial and error...unless there are a couple of people on Thurs night who could help me test the two and see which is better?? If we can get the hang of it, perhaps we could do it once a month or every other month...might be fun.

    A nice idea @jessicakrall8 but my WiFi is not very efficient but if it becomes a regular thing it would be good to join in next time.
    Welcome to the team @Nataliewr0403 & @laguera148 😍
    A beautiful sunset last night.

    Hi Jessica - I can help you test it out. I'm free most evenings. You can PM me with the details and let me know the time - you are EDT, correct? :) Have a great day! I hope others can join in on Friday night - it would be great to actually get to meet!

    @jessicakrall8 I'm happy to join the meeting on Friday
    Sorry I haven't been on much this week, busy father's day on Sunday. I ate too much unhealthy food and had too many cocktails. Monday was rough, so was Tuesday morning actually. This getting old stuff stinks =(

    Has anyone traveled to Jamaica much? I'm thinking of going there for my 40th. I typically do southern vacations to Mexico or Florida.

    Hello everyone!! My name is Courtney and I am new to the group and will be joining in with y'all for the July challenge, and hopefully many more to come!

    I am a mom of three boys and a wife to my best friend and nerdy partner in crime! I have over 100 lbs to lose and am working really hard to get back to a healthy weight in order to keep up with my very active family. We are a bunch of nerds that love to be outside, hiking, camping, build with legos, play video games, do cool arts and crafts and science experiments, and much more!

    Some of my stats:
    Age: 33 (34 next week!)
    Height: 5'4"
    Starting Weight: 320 lbs
    Current Weight: 290.2 lbs
    Goal Weight: 220 lbs
    Ultimate Goal Weight: 180 lbs

    I'm so excited to be here and joining an awesome team!! I cannot wait to get started with you all!

    @pupowl You should be selling those pictures online my friend...I think you're a famous photographer just hiding out so your fans won't bug you! LOL Loved the video too...wish we lived closer, I'd walk with ya!!! Apologies to you for getting behind in recording your steps. I'll be honest, I get so happy to click on your SPOILER to see the pictures, that I forget you always start your posts with your steps! Forgive me, I just love your pictures!!
