  • Welcome back, Paul. I'm in the same boat. I took a break and that was a huge mistake. So I'm back at the beginning. But very glad to be back.
  • Hi there! Thanks Cyndi - New Year's resolutions here we come! :sad: :happy: I've been off track for a while, so its good to be back. I know for me, the secret is counting the calories. And this is the best place to do that! Inspiring, fun, and supportive. Good luck everyone! I haven't updated my ticker yet, so just ignore…
  • Hi, gang! I am back from vacation! It was fun and eventful. Had a funeral and a wedding in addition to some travel. When I got home, the scale said I had gained 15 lbs! So, I am going to give it a week, and weigh again next week. I am not thinking that is accurate at all. I was pretty careful, though I didn't get as much…
  • Hi gang - Missed yesterday's check in. I am on vacation with limited access to the internet and NO SCALE!!!! So, I just wanted to take a moment and say hi. I will be back to normal life and normal posting next Wednesday. til then, take care!!!
  • Thanks, Jennifer - good reminder. Simple stuff like eating regularly is so important, and yet so easy to let slip by. I am attached to my cell phone like a leech, so thats a great idea. And, I need to be organized enough to take enough healthy food with me when I leave the house. Often, I will think, "I don't have time to…
  • Good morning, everyone! I just wanted to post my weekly weight before heading off to work: stillkristi: sw - 507. gw - 195. cw - 363.2 = lost 7.8 lbs
  • Good reminder, Kelly. I'm the director of an outpatient substance abuse treatment center. I know for me, when I started treating my eating like an addiction, I started to seriously lose weight. When we get honest with ourselves, and stop trying to take shortcuts and fake our way to healthy living, then we actually see…
  • HI, GANG - quick check in - crazy busy. Garden looks great, getting a lot of exercise in out there. Eating pretty good - still slipping up at night when I get home from work late sometimes. Gotta work on that! Any ideas about what to do when you were running all day and didn't get to eat healthy - or maybe even at all, so…
  • Thanks, JJTONIC - appreciate the encouragement! Hi everyone, Gee, I worked in the garden all day yesterday, and was so pooped, I didn't even log in. But, I wanted to check in with you all and see how the summer challenge is going. Take care, everyone!

  • Cyndi, thanks! Its really good to be back! I feel like I am finally doing something to take charge of my life, so - even though its only been a few days, it makes a huge difference in my attitude. Imagine that.:blushing: Its a little frustrating when I know so much more about how to take care of myself than I actually…
  • Hey, gang - just checking in before turning in. Long day and I am pooped. Stayed on track with food and water - skimped on the exercise. I will do better tomorrow! Take care.
  • Hey, gang how are you all? I have been doing very well eating for two whole days! Celebrate the small successes, right? :drinker: So, since I got back on MFP, lost 2 pounds. Updating my ticker in a minute. Just a little update on what I've been up to. Back in November, my boss was fired, and I took his responsibilities on…
  • Hi team, prolly most of you don't remember me - I've been on a LONG break! Work, health, and just life got really crazy this past six months. But, I needed to get some balance back in my life, and I decided to start here. So, hope all is well, and I will check up on you all by reading back over the thread.

  • Hey team, just a few minutes for me. I had a great workout. Burned 838 calories according to HRM worked out for 43 minutes, mostly stationary bike. Good luck everyone. Eat your veggies! Hope tomorrow is a great weigh in day for us!
  • Good morning team! I have to confess, the 5 servings of veggies is harder than I thought. However, I did better yesterday and today, I have meals planned out that will make sure I get my five in. I mentioned some information I have gotten about food interactions and what not, the initial information came from a book called…
  • morning team! Yay jib, cool that you are doing so well on the new years challenge!! I hope to join you when I get this weird weight fluctuation thing under control! Lulu, thanks for the info.

  • Hey, gang, sorry I have been MIA for a minute. My internet at home was down over the weekend, then it snowed here yesterday and I needed to get the yard and garden ready for that, so today is the first time in a while I have to sit down to the computer. How are you all?? I will catch up on posts later. Just wanted to say…
  • Hi team. Its Thursday and I am not looking forward to weighing in this week. :cry: Here's the thing: As I may have mentioned, I am 50 and am somewhere in menopause, but still having visits from aunt flo at times. Before menopause, she was a very regular visitor, staying 3 maybe 4 days tops. Lately, she comes less…
  • Yay!!! Prayerfulmom is back!!! Congrats on your ride. Its good to see you. :flowerforyou: :happy: Hi team, how is everyone.

  • Hi everyone, its a beautiful day here, I've been in the garden all morning. Getting in the last of the produce before a hard frost takes it all. I love this weather, but hate the thought that winter is just around the corner. Crazybee - one thing I notice is when I plan my meals, its much easier to post everything. When I…

  • hey everyone - kicking? Kelli, I would rather give hugs. Kicking always over balances me..................... :laugh: Once again, yesterday went by and all I managed was logging exercise and food. Wow, I love my work, but geesh - it seems to be in the way of my life sometimes! Well, gotta go exercise. Take care all.
  • Hey gang, just a quick check in this morning, I have to be at work earlier than normal. pawprint, thanks - love your post! It really is wonderful to feel good about what you are doing, isn't it? I love it! Well everyone, take care. Drink your water is my mantra this week. So, drink up! :drinker: Love you :bigsmile: Kristi
