Hi all. My name is (as suggested by my login) Lori and I live here in the great state of NY, no, not the city, I live in the beautiful region of the fingerlakes! Such beautiful country. Though, I have to admit, this time of year it's pretty from INSIDE! That cold gets bitter! hahaha.
A bit about me. a year ago (just before thanksgiving) I had started Southbeach. I joined a site for the discussions on "Southbeach for beginners." but my busy life took me away from the forums. I had lost 18 pounds, going from 197 to 179. But when I stopped going to the forums I also stopped making my menu plans. I'm sad to say as of a few days ago I was back up to 188
. This am I am back down to 186, which was encouraging a little.
I started curves on Friday, 11-30-07. Believe me, paying money I'm holding myself accountable to lose the weight! But I thought i'd come in here to get ideas and encouragement. I hope to get to know you all and to possibly be welcomed in here.
i KNOW one of my problems with eating, is I get BORED. So, I'm going to attempt one new recipe a week! Last week I tried two, too many as my 18 yr old college student is gone most nights sleeping in the dorms (his friends). Just me one dish should suffice, if it's big like the stews I made last week!
Well, I guess thats all and I'm looking forward to venturing into the other places, like food, exercise, do those threads exist? Let me see!
