  • I just saw my inspiration. A dress. It only comes in a medium size (as far as I'm concerned at this point). I haven't bought a dress in years.....years. It is going to give me the incentive to try harder. Find something that will inspire you and reach for that dream.
  • Thanks, it's only taken 27yrs to finish it. I started it by writing in a medium size notebook that I carried with me in my duffle bag. That way whenever I had a moment, I would jot down my thoughts. I got up to 5 notebooks then decided to type everything down on a flash disc. After that life took over and I didn't look at…
  • Hi everyone, I am so sorry, I got lost in time. I have just finished a book I've been writing and have been had my head in that. The great push to finish. You know how you're reading that last chapter and you just can't put it down till you finish. that was the same thing. Now that I have it boxed and shipped to my editor,…

  • Hello all, I'm sorry for not checking in more regularly, I'm finishing up on a book I'm writing and it's taking most of my time. That is between the trips we take to the ER to "try" to get my husband's IV emergency meds. Let's see, we were at the hospital 7xs in 3days, and not one day did the doctors give him the specific…
  • Stimpy, Firebird welcome to the challenge. I'm so glad to meet you. luannedonnell - this group will go on as long as it helps people. I have a flat tire this week. Whistle blown on a false start. I went over to the storage room over the garage and found my shoe box - no actually boot box full of diet books and flyers. I…

  • Today went awesome. Wishing my best for the rest of you.
  • January 1st, 2022. Are you still peeking in to see what it's all about or are you with us. I want to take off at the least 60pds this years. I am aiming to be under 200pds by Dec. 31st. I AM taking this challenge seriously ( or it wouldn't be a challenge ). So I am aiming for 81pds. The HARDEST part of all is stepping on…
  • Today is the last day for 2021, Thank God. Next year has got to be better (in so many ways). Tonight, is a good time to purge the frig, the cupboards, your secret hiding places.... come on you know exactly what I'm talking about. It's time to take the clothes off the exercise equipment dig in the closet, find the scale or…
  • What matters is that your back. I just have 3 days to get the last remaining things out of my system (cravings). January 1st is my day to start a new beginning. My treadmill has been fixed 3xs in the last month. I'm gonna have to try it out again today just to make sure it works this time. Ther's nothing more discouraging…
  • Welcome aboard shadowlady25, you definately sound like you've got a game plan. I'll be glad to hear of your progress in the coming year.
  • Tayortoeknee and Mrs Hermit. this is great and I welcome everyone with open arms. I am getting my treadmill fixed AGAIN tomorrow (for the third time in one year). If it doesn't work this time, I'm going to be making a call to better business bureau. I am serious about being up and ready for January 1st. I have meal plans,…
  • MrsHermit - I am so happy to hear from you. It looks like you have an awesome plan. I like the 5am pray time. One of the last things my mom said to me before she passed away was "Don't give up your faith." I got creative one day and created a maze to follow throughout my weight loss journey. It's a crazy maze which gives a…
  • Let me ask you another question.... If you were preparing for a stiff competition such a weight lifting challenge or the Boston marathon, would you wait till the day of the race to compete ? I don't know about you but I'm getting ready for the race. I got my treadmill fixed. I have diet chats made on my computer so that I…
  • Well, how did you do yesterday ? Thanksgiving- friends, family, Appetizers, drinks, dinner, dessert....more drinks, midnight snack ? Then we wake up this morning and feel like the Coast Guard should help us back into the ocean, cuz we've obviously become beached overnight and not sure why. We need to get ahold on this. We…
  • my Goodness, I'm sorry to hear your struggling. Don't forget, you have to take care of "yourself." We'll think of something to do to get in those exercises.
  • My best to you both. Today I am putting my treadmill in my everyday schedule. I want to get back to being a God walker.
  • Alexandra, stella and MrsHermitt how are you girls doing? I haven't heard from anyone lately?? The year is coming to an end soon. I'm gonna need some diet partners to get on with a new life. I plan on losing 60pds next year. I am headed for 80pds. Who is coming with me??
  • Pat on the back to both of you. Stella, I hope you get better each and every day. I pray for you girlfriend. MrsHermitt - You've nailed it. You are on track...run with it !!
  • MrsHermit, you are more than welcome, with open arms. Thank you a10481113 for your support and understanding. As I said, it's good to know there is someone out there who can relate to my position and fight with food right now. I need that MORE than you know. Alexandra - welcome girlfriend, my arms are around you and…
  • Boy am I glad to hear from the two of you. Now I don't feel so alone. I have a husband that I take care of as a caregiver, more than a wife. He is not only a disabled Vet but he has what's known as Cyclic vomiting syndrome. With the masks everyone HAS to wear in order to go to the ER. my husband is unable to get to his IV…
  • I am wondering if there is anyone out there who is caring for someone who is disabled or who has a disabling illness and your trying to get through it with food. Talk to me.
  • STELLA....my friend, it's so good to see you ! I am so glad your back. Big Hugs. My prayers will be with you throughout your surgery. Keep me informed how your doing. Starting Weight: 255 ( Sept. 28th ) Oct. 05:253 Oct. 12: 253 Oct. 19: Oct. 26: Total October loss:

  • Roz, Weird_Island and JEB, how are you doing this week? JEB, you and I have our first weigh in tomorrow. I hope your week was an awesome one. I was doing great till this past weekend ( yesterday I bombed ), BUT.... I gotta long way to go and I am NOT giving up. I just want to focus on my 5% right now. That is my first…
  • I would love to be a friend. I hate dieting alone so this morning I put my dog on a diet with me. He needs to lose about 10pds. First suggestion, and it's only a suggestion. when you feel hungry, drink a glass of water. you may be surprised how your body mimics hunger when in fact it's thirsty. Wait 30min and if you still…
  • ok, first day starting out, pre-trial. Didn't go too bad. I kept as busy as possible. One thing I've decided...my Dunkin Donuts coffee is not being taken from me, not gonna happen. I think the exercising will come next week. Starting Weight: 255 ( Sept. 28th ) Oct. 05: Oct. 12: Oct. 19: Oct. 26: Total October loss: Nov.…
