    Are new people welcome in this group? I hope so. I knew I needed to lose some weight and did lose and keep off 27 pounds a few years ago. Lost more than that but didn't gain it all back. I was diagnosed with non alcoholic fatty liver disease last week. Only treatment is to lose weight or eventually go into liver failure. So my motivation is high right now. I was also diagnosed with a case of gastritis from being on NAIDs for too long for arthritis and fibromyalgia. This means I am off pain meds and having trouble moving. Hopefully, as I lose weight the pain will decrease and I'll be able to exercise some.

    @charlottemilton - if you get a chance and have the resources check out DDPyoga and/or Totalgym. I use both and after a little pain getting going they have helped me move better. regular yoga has also been known to help. Welcome to the group. You can do this! We will help!

    Welcome - hapamama & Charlotte, we are here for you whenever you need us. There are quite a few women here who have some awesome advise and helpful hints.

    hapamama - I have a good feeling if your mind is into it right now, that you will be under 200 by May with room to spare.

    Charlotte - I am in a yoga class and an exercise / balance class that our senior center offers and they are wonderful. I'm 58 and I'm the young pup in the class ( their showing me up actually ), but it's helping me work out at a slower rate.

    Thank you, eppen5. I've been hovering just over 200 pounds for over a week. REALLY hoping to get to Onederland this weekend. A reward of some sort will be in order. Like you, I've been averaging about 1 pound/week. Somewhat discouraging, but every pound lost gets a fist pump when I'm on the scale!

    Feb. 22: 207.5
    Feb. 29: 203 (just barely its 203.9 lol)

    Total February Loss: 5

    Wow what a tough month. Lol. My body just didn't want to move in weight and it was infuriating. Then I woke up one morning and my pants had to be held up all day. lol. 5 a month is RIGHT where I want to be at for losing. So I'm very happy.

    Today I finally got new Jean's and I'm down to a 16. I've been so anxious to get here since I havent been in a size 16 in so long. Getting to an 18 was depressing for me because that was the highest I had ever been. I got all the way dow. To a 10 before my knee injury 4 years ago. So watching myself get to an 18 hurt. But here I am. And theres more progress to be had!!!

    Hi Stella7x7. I had The Cough for all of January. It was so bad I think I sprained my ribs from coughing. What finally helped me was flonase. I'm not a doctor and don't play one on tv, just passing along what worked for me. The cough is terrible!
