    It is good too see more of you have joined. :) I would like too make a statement. SOME of you have invited me too be a 'friend.' I dont accept friends requests easily. IF you are serious about the exercise and support of this particular forum then I will keep you in my 'friends' list. :) Should you change your mind, back out, quit coming then I will delete you. It is NOT you. It is ME. I dont see having 100's of friends when you never see them around. :( In my friends list right now I have only FIVE. As long as you come 'HERE IN THIS POSTING AREA' I am happy with that. I LOVE seeing your progress and it does motivate ME. <3

    For those of you that are new and do not know me: I started my journey in 2009. It took me THREE years too lose 50 pounds only too find I was Insulin resistant and is why I have such a difficult time losing weight. I was within 14 pounds of my goal when I had a neck and sholder injury in Dec which lasted thru February and still I have a few problems. At least I am now back too serious exercise.... I struggle yearly, monthly, weekly, daily . I am not sure that changes for anyone...If it does I have not met them yet! lol.... My GOAL is not too gain the weight back, too live a longer healthier life. It is not about looking good for me although we all want too look our best. I am 62 years old. I start these challenges every new year and have done so for several years now. I have years where there has only been a handful of people here. Sometimes I've finished the year almost by myself. I DO NOT GIVE UP whether anyone is here or not. I CAN NOT GIVE UP ON ME......I only ask that YOU DO NOT GIVE UP ON YOU...THAT is WHY we're here...too motivate one another along... :)

    That being said I will attend Church Services today and try too get in some exercise in-between as well as a visit with my mom....

    YOU GUYS CARRY ON.................................. (*)

    Awesome I'm in! Anyone want to track daily miles with me so we can keep each other on track?
    Hello....I'm not sure what you meant in your post. IF you read back I have given an example of how we log our miles...Each person will log their miles on their post. Some of us do it daily. Sometimes we miss a few days and have too play 'catch up'... I have known some that come once weekly and log everything they've done that week...

    did this help?

    I would love to join this challenge, It will make me more accountable, and I'm trying to exercise at least 4miles a day. So, hopefully I'll be well over the 100 goal, but its definitely worth a shot!

    That was an inspiring story. I have a diabetic friend who always make excuses to workout with me and refuse to diet. That is why I look for this group for support and motivation. I wanna share our posts to her. Im in!

    Thank you. I am not classified diabetic. I produce too much Insulin which is pre=diabetic. Meaning it can turn into Diabetic if I'm not careful. My husband is Diabetic. Once he started eating healthy he lost around 18 pounds and has kept it off....

    It's ok 2Iedbetter. I didnt make mine either in Dec, Jan or Feb as far as the walking part. I am lucky too have an Exercise Bike although it is making noises and I dont know how much longer I can use it.... :'( I do hope MARCH is better for us all. I really do like walking outside BEST...outside with the Nature GOD has provided for us..... <3

    Rain today. Church Day. Mom visit day. Exercise is difficult.
    I did manage a 1.5 Mile walk and 9.2 Exercise bike ride....I am tired.....

    TOTAL thus far March 1st..............1.5 walking miles...
    ......................................................9.2 Exercise Bike miles.....
  • March 1st -

    6.5 miles walking on the treadmill at the Y.
