  • Thank you all for responding. I became ill shortly after my post and stopped for a while. Now I am back and still find it slow navigating from area to area. Adding foods. Adding recipes. I have a less than 1 year old laptop with all the bells and whistles. Pretty fast elsewhere, so it must be the MFP server. :-( Going so…
  • Very well written. My feelings exactly. Thank you for starting this thread. Feel free to friend me, so we can support each other. I still don't know how to send a friend request. LOL I know . . . I must sit and figure it out. God bless you.
  • bump Absolutely inspiring. Thank you so much for taking the time to post the pictures. You have no idea how it helps us. I am very visual too, so thank you, thank you, thank you! :-)
  • Smart girl. Now I feel better that you are doing the right thing. I do agree: We are not professionals here. And some of us do give honest, well intended advice, so nothing wrong with checking with others here, but the ultimate decision is between you and your doctor. If you decide to run, I wish you the absolute best.
  • wow 100 pounds lost and bp still high? I'm sorry to read that. I'm very curious what will happen with me as I lose weight. It's my #1 goal to stop bp pills. Been on them since my early 20's, but I have never really tried to lose weight the way I am now. Nevertheless, thank God for meds. I would advise the member who…
  • Amen to a lot of what I read in this thread: no time. feel hurried most days. not ready to date. sitting home alone because friends are married and/or simply forget about us single moms, etc. etc. But there is a reason for everything, so I remain still (emotionally) and wait on God to direct my next steps. I think getting…
  • Excellent! Great job and well done! Thank you for sharing and inspiring me!

  • I am almost in tears here reading the excellent replies you all posted. I absolutely agree with ALL of them. Great point! Great insights! Great wisdom!!!! I am printing every single thread and carrying them with me in my purse. They are worth memorizing. I had to rest with a migraine, so I am actually leaving now. I will…
  • wow! I am so happy to have read this post. First of all, and I mean this from the bottom of my heart: you are one gorgeous lady - even with weight! I can tell you have the famous hourglass figure, so I can only imagine how much more beautiful you will look as you reach goal. You have definitely inspired me. I love your…

  • Kim and Heather: Thank you. Every day we wake up with new opportunities. I'm trying not to obsess too much (which I normally do) and then it's this all or nothing cycle. I'm just thankful 99% of my meals these past 6 days have been whole foods, home prepared. I already feel so much better. Lighter. A bit more energy. I…
  • Thank you all for taking the time to respond and educate me. I hope you are all having a fantastic day on track.
  • Thank you very much! I hope your day is going well - on track too.
  • good point . . .
  • Why do you assume I was looking up fast foods online? I've been on looking for healthy recipes to cook for next week. Maybe that did it. I learned something new today. Did not know ads were done that way.
  • The most beautiful worship concert from my church - posted on YouTube. wow! Now on to cooking for the week. :-)
  • hello, how do I get those nice tickers (?)
