  • If by turning things around you are talking about turning an aircraft carrier, then I'm turning :). I started about a year ago, lost 50 lbs, just counting calories and doing some walking. I have a very sedentary job. My Apple watch runs out of battery just by telling me it's time to stand! It's been a very slow battle…
  • Don't give up. I've been stalled for 5 months! The positive, I've not gained back the weight and continue to log my calories. I've just gotten a little complacent and need to refocus. Hoping now that the Summer and travel is over, I can jump start the loss again. You've done great so far, just don't give up, most of us…
  • I had two this past weekend. I had a follow up Dr. Visit. They took my blood pressure and the nurse said it was perfect. The Dr. Came in and asked if I was following my meds, and I told him I had stopped the BP meds because they were making me dizzy. The Dr. said, "well your BP looks good, but you'll probably end up back…
  • I can't say I've quit, because I'll still have 2-4 drinks on the weekends, however the size of the drinks have changed dramatically. Before, I would have 3-4 drinks on Friday and 3-4 on Saturday. However, that would consist of half a liter of Vodka on Fri and the other half on Sat. Couple that with munching on peanuts (THE…
  • I'm going to have the second the motion! I've been at the same weight for the past 2 months and I was getting a little frustrated, even though it's my own fault. However, after reading your comment, I realized. I'm at the same weight for the past 2 months, I haven't gained any. That's a win even if it does include a scale.…
  • Very few people have noticed the 50lbs that are missing, but today, I wore a shirt that I had put in the back of my closet because it was getting a little snug around the mid section. One of my co-workers said I looked homeless because my clothes are baggy and my pants look like they are falling off. I've put off buying…
  • I appreciate your concerns and feel your pain of people that never have anything nice to say. My mother is a prime example. She always has to find the negative. I recently did a full makeover of my backyard. Spent a ton of time and money and I'm thrilled with the outcome. We had a family party and she went out back to…
  • I'd stay in Chicago if I were you!!!!! Great Job.
  • Couldn't agree more. I'm down 16.3% of my body weight and no one has mentioned it? Maybe I didn't look that bad 50 lbs heavier? But I sure feel a lot better! At the end of the day, I'm doing this for me, not anyone else, but I appreciate your frustration.
  • Great job! patients is the key and persistence. Looks like you covered them both!
  • My apologize for length, but others said, this was more for me than anything! I almost didn't reply although I wanted to! I thought, how many times have you said "I'm serious this time" only to have my determination end by the weekend! I've been down this road, on day 2 so many times I can't count and I don't want to look…
  • Sorry for what you are going through, but I highly suggest you re-read the suggestion by Ravenlibra, it was absolutely brilliant. Like you said, maybe not today or tomorrow, but very good idea for you to help heal and teach your kids and family about your grandfather. Wish you the best on your journey!
  • Great job - Good luck in school, we need more RN's.
  • I confess I got a tremendous amount of satisfaction this morning driving to work! A car raced past me in the left lane and got on the bumper of the car in front of them, till that car moved from the left lane, then proceed to get it back up to 90 mph. Unknown to them, that the car that moved, pulled in front of an unmarked…
  • It didn't get overlooked, just not caught up. I'm sorry for what you are going through with you grandfather! I'm sorry your confession was lost in the "chit chat".
  • I confess, I'm so CDO that I had to read through every post before I could comment. I can't allow my e-mail or text show unread messages either. It's a curse. However, for those of you dealing with deaths, both past and present and future. My heart goes out to you and wish you the best. Enjoy your time with those still in…
  • I run a side business, and got a call saying the computer was broke and it wouldn't turn on. I tried to analyze it over the phone asking her to turn it off and power back up to reboot, which she confirms she had done several times. So I leave my regular job (early lunch to drive 15 miles one way). I get to the store to…
  • We had this happen at one of my offices. They kept taking one persons tuna fish sandwich. So he decided to start making his tuna fish sandwich with cat food blended in. Ironically, he had to do it twice before the person stopped taking the sandwich? We kept looking for the person that kept licking their hands to clean…
  • I'll jump on the band wagon. Ironically, a number of middle age (I'm assuming) Finance professionals that are overweight and have too much time to spend on MFP going through the Chit Chats. NOTE: If you want to make decent money, hate your job and have time to surf the interweb, Accounting is your calling!
  • Outstanding results! I agree that each day is a battle and you have to keep fighting and "working" at it every day. The key is to keep fighting the battles so that you can win the war. I've been up and down the same 35lbs for the past 10 years, and I keep fighting everyday to make good choices and do what is best for my…
  • Congrats on the accomplishment, you a testament that hard work and persistence will pay off. Some think it's easy for men to lose weight, and I'm hear to tell you it is just as hard for men as women. Thanks for leading the way!
  • Outstanding. I have similar stats, at least from a starting standpoint and age, so I'm looking to follow your path. Keep up the great work and example you set for everyone.
  • That's why I'm here!!!!! I was a nightmare, and look where it got me. I've learned that not everything comes from the Devil, so I now have a broader spectrum to choose from, but I started this way! I blame my parents, because it sure wasn't my fault that they gave into my stubborness!!!! :wink:
  • It's nice to know I'm not the only one out there. I was ready to go 17 years ago, then found out my son was on his way. Miserable ever since, but I do have 2 awesome kids. Oh to be brave and end it long ago, how my life may have had some happiness. Now my joy is reading the chit chat threads and living vicariously through…
  • Breathing, and not having to claw on the lid trying to get out.
  • Just don't talk to them while at the gym.
  • God Willing and the snow doesn't melt too quickly, I'm in the Middle. Enjoy every moment in the present because it goes so Fast.
  • I can honestly say the only thing I like about my job is that it is so boring I can get on MFP and have everyone entertain me. The only other positive, is I'm able to warn young people to NOT go into my field (Finance). I am trying desperately to go into a different field, but with 20 years in the industry it's hard to…
