There are a group of us that have been on the WW site for years and we are starting over here. We are hoping to keep our group and add to our group with more interaction here. Some of us do WW tracking, some do MFP, some just do on their own. The most important thing is accountability and encouragement. We strive to encourage, as we all have our own things we are working on to improve. However, it all comes down to HEALTH. We can't take back the years of abuse, but our bodies are amazing and heal themselves when given the opportunity. We will post on this THREAD every day, we will not start a new one. So bookmark this thread and come visit us everyday.

    Great we can attach images here if we want to. No exercise yesterday :( I was tired. TTOM came and just no energy. So today is a new day.

    Peru, I tried tracking both but couldn't keep up. So now I'm just tracking here. I'm on a modified carb eating plan now because of my prediabetes. 40% carbs 30% fats 30% protein Protein is my hardest, So my challenge for this next week is to increase my avg from this week I will do that by having smoothies 3 times a week and yogurt parfait 3 times a week for lunch.

    cbabie have you been keeping up with your challenge?

    Hello ladies!!
    About to put the kids to bed, so don't gave much time to write!!
    @cbabie I was really busy yesterday too and didn't eat all that great!! I'm really struggling with getting back on track!!
    @theslightedgeforever : yes we do have to get out of the pre-diabetes phase. I'm having a hard time!! I was doing so good a few weeks ago and I'm having a hard time getting back on track. I'm feeling like paying for WW has been a waste ughhh!!!
    @jackie_van_d : welcome!! Please come again!! I recently joined WW, but doing the online version only. But I'm having a hard time getting on track. I might have to quit because it'll be a waste!!
    Have you used MFP before??

    Ok ladies have a good night!! I'm really liking this board!!

  • peruviansweetieperuviansweetie Member Posts: 66 Member Member Posts: 66 Member
    Note: you know what I think??!! When you write personals if you put @ and their full name then that person gets a notice that she has a message on the board or something.
    Are you ladies getting a notification that your name has been mentioned on here?
    I've been doing the @ and using the full name!!

    Hi everyone! I found it. Still need to download the phone app. My phone battery doesn't last so long with Pokemon Go running on it though, haha. I'm still recuperating from my long weekend...the heat doesn't help that any. I'm chicken sitting my son and daughter-in-law's 2 hens for a week. The fire up in the mountain blew smoke and ash over to their house in the desert and the air in they took off to a timeshare in Vegas and I get to watch the hens. They used to be my hens, so it will be fun to have them around this week. Are we still doing the whole "challenge" theme? I need to do a challenge, lol. OK, it's super late and I have to get up before it gets too hot to deal with stuff in my garden....being away from it for 5 hot days was not a good thing.
    Oh, my screen name here is bugmom92 instead of kfreeman92. That's my name most everywhere else anyway.
    I think I may need to try Simply Filling for a bit. I have to get out of the sugary/junky food habit fast.
    Until tomorrow (or today...I think it's after midnight!)
    Karla :-)

    Wow Girls, I am so glad you all have found us. I am going to send a note to Believe today and let her know where we are. I am working on my own challenge as I think most of us are. But it's always good to have a little challenge on the side. Like my 22 push up challenge..I still do those, it became part of my routine.

    Challenge: do you guys want a physical one or something like water intake? I think we should have a couple..

    one challenge is to Post, not just visit and read, but POST every day with your update on your challenges and if you have time do the personals.

    2nd challenge? It sounds to me like most of us here are fighting the sugar war. I know that this program provides us the grams we are eating a day, but WW does not provide a summary, but it does individually..which is a pain. Karla what are your thoughts? Maybe we each pick what the 2nd challenge is and we are accountable to this group for reporting daily on that challenge. Remember that water is VERY important to flush out your system, etc. no nutrients, but healthy intake.

    @theslightedgeforever great job in still trying to keep on moving even when you knew to stop because of your thumb. Oh my then complicated by Tom..LOL Consistency is the key! There is no judgement here, but it's important to be accountable to yourself.
    @peruviansweetie I am so happy to see you posting. You know it's hard to fight the sugar when it's in everything we eat. It's harder because we don't see the physical effects until it's too late. I see my dad who does not take care of his body...but won't give up the ghost..have a miserable life and I don't want to be like him. BUT that doesn't occur to me when I pick up the ice cream or the creme filled hostess.LOL So how do we make it real enough every day to understand the effects this has on us.
    @bugmom92 Glad you found us. Karla I know you can do this. I have been on the boards with you forever. I see some of our old friends on FB and I am sad that they did not keep trying. As long as you keep trying you will succeed. Have fun watching your chicks...I have a picture of my mom's mom with her chickens and love that picture.
    @jackie_van_d I hope I didn't scare you away..LOL I am glad you found us. We are small, but we love to encourage each other and listen to the days we have and applaud the successes.

    Okay gals I have to get ready for work and do my exercies.

    walk 30 min
    push ups 22
    get all my water in
    stay within my sugar grams today. (I did yesterday) Yea me. one day down 12K more to go..LOL

    Well, today's goal was more water,
    As I stated earlier I usually drink in total about 1 cup a day
    So far I'm at 3 cups and a very iced down Coke !
