    Hello Everyone, My name is Marie, and I'll be joining you for the September challenge.

    My main goal is not to just lose the lbs, but improve my over all health. It's not easy to start over at nearly 60 years old. (Old habits die hard) as the saying goes. I would like to be in better health as I slowly enter my senior years, so I can truly enjoy them. 😀

    Thanks for allowing me to join this awesome group

    @fatfifties- I officially don't start until September. However, I was wondering if possible could I join your 21 lb gone by Christmas. I'm hoping to lose at least that amount or a little more. Thanks! Marie.

    Good evening all. The heat is here for the next week at least. Triple digits will make my walks hard.
    Check in:
    Steps - 16475
    Calories - 2200.
    Exercise - walk late morning. 2 hours even. Added a bit of shopping while out. Looking for multivitamins.
    Want to play pickleball indoors tomorrow and probably gym for the next week.

    @lindamtuck2018 the best beer food they had was pulled pork, mashed red potato with stout beer gravy. They had a creme Brule with a pale beer, fish tacos with beer batter, which were boring since we can have those all over town anyway. We are having Salisbury steak tomorrow with mashed spuds and I am thinking on trying to make the stout gravy.

    Welcome! There are a few of us in our late 50’s on the team. I just turned 58 myself. It’s never too late to get healthy. I am now insulin free with my A1C in the non diabetic range. If you go back and read Roger’s introduction at the beginning of August you will see a truly inspiring story of getting healthy.

    Steps: 4,195
    Exercise: 1/5

    I impressed myself with my eating at the restaurant yesterday. I split a meal with my friend and didn’t even eat all mine. I am not impressed with all the money I spent on candles and wax melts. I am planning on laps and maybe arms today. I need a good stretch because I was sitting a lot yesterday.
