JsMommy, all are welcome here! I see you are in Oklahoma. That's where I was living before I took this job in France.

As of yesterday, I am halfway to my goal of 180. I'm sure I'll readjust that goal when I get closer. I was hoping to get to right at the 200 mark or even 198 by the time I returned to the states, but I may be heading home a lot sooner than originally planned.

I received a call last week saying that my father requires a liver transplant. This is a stressful time, especially being so far away, but I'm not turning to food like I have in the past. If anything, I'm determined to be at my healthier because as a universal donor, I'm the most likely candidate for giving my father part of my liver. I will know more later this week.

NjPants, I'm sorry about your father, that's great that you are willing to step up as a donor. I hope the best possible options arise for you all.

Hi Everyone! I've been MIA - throwing parties and running around to lessons and competitions! I am still slowly losing so that's good....but I have stopped exercising and I need the mojo to get back into it. The horrible weather is not helping....I really need spring to come!

I'm still contemplating signing up for the Disney World princess marathon next year....part of me thinks it's crazy, but part of me thinks it is great motivation to get really fit. I'm not sure how my knees will hold up though.

Norma - Sorry to hear about your Dad. That's amazing that you may be able to donate part of your liver, keep us posted on that!

JsMommy - Welcome!

Oh good, a March Chat! I should have posted my update here.

I'm back to losing the extra weight (not the actual weight I needed to lose, but the extra I had gained).

I'm doing the food delivery service in my town and it's pretty good and I hate to admit that I like the fact that the food is there, ready to heat up and eat, and I didn't have to make it. My BF really likes it too and he was the one that suggested it and I hate to say that he was right -- I resisted a lot, because I thought only home cooked meals, made from scratch are healthy.

They might be health-IER, but they aren't the only healthy ones!

So, it's been surprisingly easy to stay on track with dinners prepared like this. I never realized dinners were my downfall before.

Let's see how March goes!

Norma - I'm sorry to hear about your dad. I'm glad you're not turning to food on this and I'm glad you're also a universal donor. I hope it all works out for him and he's recuperates soon.

Laura - Glad you're still losing! That's great. Exercising might be overrated, if you're still losing. I do it for the stress, not for the weight loss.

Welcome Mission2Lose and JsMommy!
