Basically post as often as you like, usually when you lose weight (or gain, it happens), or feel like giving/getting support, (which could be everyday or every few days, whatever) and whoever gets to 5 pounds lost first gets to start the next new thread.

Good luck everyone and happy losing!:D

Shazzaaammmmmm You all are doing GOOOODDDDD :) Spunky.... The weight will go away (like my water gain)... It will...

How is the weather by you all? Its mid 80's during the day and mid to low 70's at night here (good ole SE Florida) Tho I am North of West Palm Beach.

kayin
04-23-2013, 06:21 PM
wannaskipandlaugh - your weather sounds awesome!

It's between 7 and 15 degrees celcius here during the day (so 45-60 farenheit), half sunny days, quarter cloudy days and quarter rainy days the past few weeks.

Have been walking everyday, except two days ago when it HAILED on me in 10 degree (50 farenheit) weather! It was crazy! Had to turn around!

wannaskipandlaugh
04-23-2013, 07:18 PM
YIKES Kayin... HAIL? I would have hightailed it tooo back home. OUCH. I hope you did not get dinged! I will blow some nice warm weather your way and walking everyday. That is great. When I lose alittle more (when I get to the 240s I am hoping) I can walk more than 3-4 times a week... Right now.. my heel kills me the next day... but getting stronger (I walk 2.5 miles in about 48 minutes and getting alittle faster each time)

Hugs to you and send you a shield over your noggin too!
