    @Lin20281 Happy Belated Bday!!!

    @R2che Weekend was nice! My daughter (7) wanted to get her ears pierced so we took her yesterday but the piercer was out sick :( Going to try again tonight. She was relieved because she was pretty nervous lol!
    We just relaxed yesterday and played in the pool. It was a beautiful weekend! I drank a little too much but my eating was great. The scale didn't move much probably because of the alcohol but I am focusing on drinking alot of water today and flush my system :)

    I would like to lose 2 lbs this week so I need to stay focused!

    How is everyone else doing?

    Hi NoMoreAFatChick. I've never fasted before. Why is it beneficial to fast? This is where you avoid food and drink nothing but liquids?

    I'm soooo tired today. 5am starts are no fun...

    Day off tomorrow, can't actually wait

    How's everyone doing? It's all gone quite quiet in here...

    Hi there. Day #25 already. Still trying to stick with. Some days are tough, we all have them, I know. I'm proud of you gals! You're doing great! We have a few days left in May. Let's make them count! Does anyone know what happened to our friend Pink? Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone. I'm off for a few days but I'll still get in my daily exercise. Talk to you soon. Have fun and be safe out there! NoMoreAFatChick, thank you for sharing the info on fasting! I appreciate that! Chicabear :)

    Hi Everyone! I think tomorrow is gonna be the last day of the Hogwarts Challenge. As far as I know I've completed ✅ all the tasks! Whew!! Have learned a lot from participating. It's been great for me! But hard.

    Today is a milestone for me!! For the first time since 2015 I am below 200 pounds! It is so exciting! I want to send up fireworks or something really crazy. I typed this all up by hand and posted it, and 3/4 of it was gone. Sometimes using the cell is really frustrating. Anyway, this morning I weighed 199.8 pounds! My starting weight October 2, 2016 was 274. MFP shows starting 230, but I had already lost a bunch. Anyway, today was a big day for me.

    Hope all of you are doing fantastic and having a wonderful day.
