slmn11 I think that they are still hovering around me. HHMMMM I step on the scale they are gone, get off, step back on the scale and low and behold 1 came back. What's with that???? Go AWAY I say! You think I would have lost it on my night time walk last night next to the woods. HHMM Well maybe its a spirit lb sticking with me until I go back to the walk by the woods. YEAH that is what I say.

I hope that all are having a good day and that your "spirit" lbs go visit a person who wants them!

Hi, another newbee hoping to find a place to discuss my weight loss journey with other gals around my age.
I turned 62 this year but they say thats the new 40 , so I'll hold tight to that thought.
I still need to fill out my profile but I wanted to say hi first.

looking forward to "meeting" ya'll

Hello and Salena11 Come on in!

Age is just a figment of our imagination (unless the joints ache LOL) that is my thought. Welcome Welcome to you. This forum is awesome and has such wonderful people on it. I just joined about 2 weeks ago and already gotten help when I was ready to binge/throw in the towel. Please join in and at you too!!

I've decided that "with age comes wisdom" and that's why it's taken until I was 50 to finally figure out how to do this once and for all.

That's the plan, at least!

Hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend. I'm pleased to say that the re-boot I did last weekend has had the right effect and got the scale moving again, finally!!

Girls TY for the kind welcome to me.

Welcome Salena11 I'm new here also. Everyone is sooo encouraging & that's what I need to stay @ my goal.

Stupid weird cold winter; too nasty to b out & about & burn-up cals/carbs on the weekend, so we've been watching lots of TV not being active. Saturday night is date night & there was a 'pizza special' sooo hard for me to avoid. That 3rd slice just popped into my mouth when I wasn't looking then I drank 2 ice tea's I was so thirsty from the salty cheese & I had a Huge belly-ache/sick from eating so much. My guy ate 6 slices w 2 beers. My jeans felt snug the next day from all that salt/water, stupid pizza
I should've drank a glass of wine (at least wine has antioxidants) w 3 cookies instead, for my snack 'My lesson I learned', just say 'No to more than 1 slice of pizza', I'm a 1 slice girl now.

A nutritionist on TV was asked whats healthier, 'Hershey kisses or peanut butter m&m's'her answer was "eat the kisses, because we'll eat fewer because we have to unwrap each kiss".

April, congrats on your loss!

wannaskipandlaugh on your job interview Tuesday!!!

Hello to everyone here I hope you'all have a wonderful week OP After I screwed-up Saturday night, I have my shopping list w better snack treats now.

Hi everyone and welcome to some newbies, hope everyone is feeling focused today and enjoying their day. I have been AWOL for a few days, family drama ahhhh such is life, but I am happy to say that I didn't head for biscuit barrel as I usually do. On track and down another half a kilo that would be just a bit more than a pound. It is wet here today but very humid, can't wait for Autumn.
Take care and stay safe and be happy everyone x

A New Begining. I sure do hope that all is well for you and the family. I forgot that you are ending summer there. How hot does it get by you? Being here in Fl (sorta south of central east coast just north of West Palm Beach) we stay warm most of the year tho they say it will be in the 40's this weekend at night bbrrrr (my orchids need blankies LOLOLOL) Hope all is well.

I had gained 4 lbs Saturday (strange as I am long past TOM - but maybe the body still yearns) and have finally lost all of it again. Found out that drinking lots of water sure does help it along alot faster.

Have a great night and day everyone!
