    Hola from Houston. Still alive and losing, slowly very slowly now. Harvey came and went but the effects are still visible everywhere. ... People's memories and homes, literally the walls, piled both sides of the street end to end with openings for driveways. It's depressing and sad and hopeless.

    I too am glad to hear from you, and take care whilst working so hard. One of the most inspiring things I read and saw on MFP was you getting back on your paddleboard a few months back, despite the jellyfish stings!

    So sorry to read about your MiL's troubles, and all her neighbours, all the areas and people affected by these weather events. Such things very occasionally happen in the UK, flooding usually, or high winds damage, but nothing on the scale that you have in the US. Whatever happens to all the ruined furniture and household goods? Is it incinerated (wood, fabric and other flammable materials) or just put into landfill? I assume there is not the manpower to try and recycle stuff, or if it is safe to do so. Most will have been contaminated by floodwater. The mountain of it to be disposed of must be enormous.

    My weight hasn't changed much in the past few weeks. It finally showed up. I've tried to drink more water and I think that's what helped this week. That, and I stayed away from high sodium foods the day before my weigh in.
    I think I'm doing better with my diet. I'm not one to eat super healthy. I think meal prepping is helping. I only went over my daily calories one day the past week.

    I actually gained another 10 lbs above my 09/2013 weight by the time I was finished with my cancer treatment in October 2014, so in Jan 2015 when I got serious again, I started at 247. So really, I've lost 73 lbs. My goal is 130 so right now I'm about 2/3 of the way there, "only" 45 lbs to go. I'm trying to move more and get some exercise in, but it's difficult when my heart is not cooperating. I had another echocardiogram today, should find out by Monday or Tuesday if my heart has improved any.
    My insurance "new year" starts Oct 1st, so I will have to start paying for my doctor visits again - it was nice not having to pay for anything after I hit the catastrophic cap this year, all the way back in February, but <sigh> that has come to an end. Thankfully I still have some money left in my medical spending account, that will help a whole lot! I've been missing a lot of work and run out of any kind of leave, so time missed = no pay. I'm not sure what the future holds, but I will keep plugging away anyway.

    @ihp2015 Hi Irene! Great wt loss for this week! You are really dreaming big with a goal to lose almost 30lbs in 10wks. Good luck! What are your plans for achieveing such a lofty goal?

    @pneschich I too dislike the challanges. It feels like everyone just shouting into space. Not much interaction or support. If each person would just at least comment about the post before theirs... I know it takes time...
    I am sorry you are still suffering from Harvey. I am near Tampa and am very lucky Irma weakened like it did. Hang in there! You have been thru worse. This too shall pass.

    :heart: Rach

    @MermaidPrincessRach I love your new profile pic!! I know the challenges aren't for everyone but please do check in. I would love to keep offering support to those that aren't doing the challanges, and I dont know how to do that if you aren't on here letting us know how you are. BTW how are you doing?

    @Barney... you are right on track. You have such a great exact handle on your caloric needs its impressive. I am going to go re-read your post about your bmr and see what I can learn from you .
    @KAREN welcome back, you've got this!
    @I'm on my way... good for you for doing this young (I'm 47) your body is gonna be so happy! And your skin is gonna bounce back quickly . Yay!!!
    @Rachel, I can't say I agree with the expression "shouting into space" . I personally feel support from this group, and the structure is really helping me with my progress ... it may have slowed BUT I'm still trucking along, in part due to this thread and the people here.
    Also, I haven't been here long but I assume that summer is slow because everyone is busier and with less structure than in winter.
    Cheers

    Thursday Truth ... I'd like to pipe in on the 'talk' going on about not liking this thread with the challenges being run ... we've always had challenges on here, but not the one that took such a big hold of the group like the weight reporting chart that's been running most of this year. Those other challenges were things that no one monitored and reported on how we were doing as a group. Sometimes there were several different ones running at the same time because no one could agree on just one to focus on. At least, that's how it was when I joined the thread in 2014.

    This thread, like any other, is what you make it ... meaning the people who take the time to stop by, read, and post. However I do understand how sometimes it feels like the only time many people stop by is to report their weights once a week ... But if that is what is helping them stay on track and motivated to keep plugging away in their efforts, then that's all to the good. Say something if you want to share, say nothing if you don't, and if you don't know what to post about but feel like you want to, then follow the page 1 daily topic suggestions that were the foundation for the thread to begin with. .... :# And now that I got that off my chest. Thanks for prompting the urge in me to share, @pneschich and @MermaidPrincessRach; I think you are not alone in wanting more dialogue and less statistics on here, or some dialogue along with. :)

    @newjax2017 ... I really miss people on here over the weekend ... I think many people find it easier to stop by during the week when they have time during their work day but on weekends are busy with their family life.

    @GOINSTD12 ... Speaking of insurance plans ... got my update for 2018 in the mail yesterday, and natch everything is going to cost more next year :| --- I did a review of the year and see that while I've only managed to lose about 10 pounds so far this year I actually lost over 48 pounds during the 19 week where I lost weight. Too bad there were also 16 weeks where I gained a total of 36 pounds. Only on 2 weeks did I stay the same. (this is my Sunday morning weigh-in stats, Wednesdays are another story). Consistency is Key ... I'm still learning how to apply this rule day in-day out.

    QUESTION Everyone .... Give a shout if you use a smartphone for MFP. (I recently had to use one and found it great for reporting on my food diary with it, but terrible for following the community page threads and threads.) So now I use the smartphone for logging and the desktop computer for sharing.

    Nuff Said.

    @Nikion901 Smartphone phone user here. I have never used the pc to log on so don't know how it compares. But I have difficulties with other things like Facebook switching from smartphone to pc, formats are different so I feel I'm always missing something important. So I just stick with one. And I do love being able to stand in the panty door and scan what I am about to shove in my face. :p
