  • Connie: I have no doubt that you will prevail. I also ate more this week than I planned, but I can start over. I'm starting to see that as a blessing, that life is a series of chances to start over. The old "me" would tell myself that I might as week wait until Friday, and just make a New Year's resolution (as if that ever…
  • We like to celebrate the solstice by going up to the Red Rocks amphitheater and drumming up the sunrise...about 5,000 people last year, bringing every imaginable drum with them.
  • Connie: I totally understand what you're saying about the limitations of getting older. My wife and I are getting our house ready to be listed next week and the physical challenges are difficult to overcome. I've sold and bought hones twice in my younger years and I don't remember it ever being difficult....Anyway, we're…
  • To all my friends in this group: Thank you for being there...as I've explained to some of you, this is a time of high stress in my household, as we navigate getting our house ready to sell and are trying to close the purchase of our house in Maryland. Lots of disruption, which I don't usually handle well. That's why I…
  • I've decided to delay my shoulder replacement surgery until next year, as we are selling our house in Colorado and moving to Maryland next month. It sucks because I've met my deductible and like the orthopedic surgeon but with Covid shutting down some elective surgeries, I'm going to deal with the pain and wait until the…
  • We are going to treat Christmas in the same way we did Thanksgiving - no company and no traveling. Thank god the vaccine will be arriving soon for high risk folks such as my wife and me.
  • Connie: Well done.....maybe I need new batteries as my scale isn't moving LOL
  • Glad you're back Jackie!
  • It's great to see such progress! You look great!
  • Hi there and welcome!
  • Lately I've been trying to spend less time worrying about the scale and more time on increasing my exercise---I continue to be able to walk up hills on my hikes without getting winded --- I can actually talk while walking! Even at a mile in altitude here in Denver I've seen a huge improvement. Now if I could just get rid…
  • @eliazalot That's a great feeling ---- I am finding that I have to wear a belt with my shorts or they fall down! Came close a couple of times in the grocery store of losing my drawers...More importantly, I'm sorry about your grandma's passing.
  • That's awesome.....
  • @_inHisGrace Hang in there....you have already made such an effort. I know how hard it is to lose a parent, especially when they have been so supportive throughout your life. My dad was my biggest cheerleader -- no matter what I was doing, he found good in it and was proud of me. It was 16 years ago when he passed, just 6…
  • @conniewilkins56 Connie, you are an inspiration to us all. You have helped me more than you know, especially with the weight plateaus. I finally broke 250 down to 246 and it took me almost a month to do it! Thank you!
  • @amart4224 I wanted to share with you how I met my second wife (my first wife died 16 years ago). I was trying multiple dating sites with no luck....I went on a site called Single-Net and within a few days was talking with the lady who is now my wife....the crazy thing about it was that her subscription was going to end…
  • @benjaminlight Welcome Benjamin! I'm glad you joined us. I'm only 3 months in but this group has been a lifesaver....there is a lot of discussion, so sometimes it is hard to keep up, but there are some real success stories here that have inspired me to keep going. Take care...
  • @conniewilkins56 I know that when I am feeling lazy in the morning I remind myself of how much more good stuff I can eat if I go out and burn the calories....and I'm motivated. The other thing I've noticed is that when I don't exercise, my appetite seems to increase, creating a double-whammy effect because I have so few…
  • Beautiful dogs, both of them...
  • Steve: What a bummer! You seem to be walking a lot lately, is your back better?
  • @eliezalot I am sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. The connections we have with grandparents parents are very special. Thank you for sharing this...and take care.
  • Welcome to the group. I think you'll find we are very supportive, celebrating your good days and understanding your bad ones. I look forward to seeing you succeed.
  • Yes, isn't it great when you get an NSV by surprise! I, too, am having to tighten my belt to wear shorts that I could barely button (my biggest fear was that the button would pop off when I was in a meeting at work).
  • Today: Finish grading last weeks assignments and prepare lessons for coming week Take Darwin out for another walk before it gets too stifling hot Water vegetable garden and harvest peppers (jalapenos and bell peppers) Catch up on phone calls to family members Stick to my calorie budget!!!
  • I know what the caretaker role feels like, as I cared for my late wife while she was dying of cancer. It was quite a few years ago, but my memories of the experience are vivid.....I closed the office of my CPA practice so that I could work from home, and my friends volunteered to stay with her when I had to take care of…
  • Connie: You have been one of the most inspirational people in this group for me. I always enjoy your frankness, your sense of humor, and your determination....because of people like you, I have been able to overcome some very strong urges to throw it all away. It's hard to admit to anyone just what an enemy I can be to…
  • w Connie: Hope you feel better after that tumble....sounds like you must be a VIP of Publix by now!
  • Welcome Roger....glad you joined us. This group is quite active and helpful...I joined a couple of months ago and found it to be a great help....
  • Connie: I was in the same place for the last two weeks, before the scale dropped almost 3 lbs. In one day. I ate some fast food earlier this week (McDonalds and Good Times, which didn't make my weight go up, but the old feeling of being bloated and sluggish came back. And I felt like crap. The next morning I got up with a…
  • Long walk with Darwin (dog) Grocery shopping Grading my class Call my brother and mother Save my exercise calories
