Wow, Weeks 15! Hey, isn't that cool that I've also lost 15?? I hope I am over the 16 pound mark for next week!

Goal for this week:

1. Exercise 5/7 days.

I took off the scale goal because I'm just not ready to go there yet. It's my comfort and my accountability. I'll address that obsession later!

Welcome everyone, and have a great Easter!!

Hey all. Hope it is a good Easter weekend for all. I am having a little bit of an identity/goal crisis. Ah will. I did make one weight workout, and did 5 workouts last week. Goals for this week are working out at least 5 days, and at least 2 weight workouts. I am really feeling the urge to try running again, but, we shall see. I really need a pat on the back, because, while I am spending too much money on eating out again, I have not been binging. Which is really amazing, considering. Take care everyoen.

Hey all. Where is everyone? It seems a bit lonely. . . . Ah well. This has not been a stellar day. I had a bad bought of acid reflux last night. I didn't make it to the gym this morning, will not make it to the barn since I don't think the arena dust will be good on my throat, and I gave in to stress and binged today. Yikes. The only good choice i have made is drinking water.

Hi everyone! My dad is still here, so this will be short.

I had to go buy new jeans yesterday as my bigger comfy ones actually fell off of me. I am comfortably in a size 18 now. Wow!

Jolly, everyone is probably here, just trying to catch up from the weekend. Sounds like you are doing well. I did bad at brunch yesterday, plus pms might bring a gain this week, but I am prepared for it.

Chequita: did you weigh in? Are you joining me in 2ferland??

I'll check in more tomorrow.

Hi All!

Amazingly, I lost again tonight. I was down a minimal 0.2, but dang, with it being TOM, I'm so impressed with myself. Down 15.4 now to 239.6. Wahoo!

Thanks for the good vibes, Chequita.

Hi Mistie, Dan, Lucky and Jolly!

Hi everyone.

Audrey :cheer: way to go. Only 2 more pounds. Does that give you a little extra motivation? I am so excited for you. :cheer:

Dan how goes everything for you? Are you getting back into the groove of things? How is the new computer coming?

Hi Mistie and welcome. Hope to hear more from you.

Chachee :bravo: you are also doing so well, that I think it might be time for me to start ww. You and I are almost at the same weight now. A challenge might have to be on. :D

Jolly how are things going with you? Don't slip away again. Make sure you check back in. Plus I have all sorts of questions for you to answer for me now that we are getting so close to the start of horse show season.

Must run. Have been dealing with teenage girl issues. Audrey does it get any better after 14? Its either her or me that I could :rollpin: oh the :stress: !!!

Hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

Hey all. Things have been a bit nuts. Didn't mean to hide. I weighed in Tuesday. I didn't make it to the gym Monday, as I had a real bad bout of acid reflux the night before. I stayed the same this week. Can't complain. I am trying hard to stay on track - though am having a hard time dealing with everything that is going on. To top it all off, I may have to miss the horse fair this weekend due to needing a brake job. As for showing, we are going to do Western this year, and I still need to get (afford) quite a bit of show stuff. One day at a time. One day at a time.

Hope everyone else is doing well. Talk more later.

Jolly sorry to hear that you are still having such a hard time with your acid reflux. Is there anything that you can take to help with that? How often are you having the attacks?

well must run and get some sleep. 6:00 will come way to early.

Have a great day tomorrow.

Hi Guys!

Lucky: Great to see you. A challenge....hmm...funny you should mention that. I'm starting one on Sunday that will last until my hubby returns. I mentioned it on another WW thread called "I'm back and on a mission....come join my crusade". It's under the WW general forum. Check it out! Sorry to hear you are having problems with your teenager. My son is only 2 and I still struggle at times. I'm so glad I had a boy!! Thanks for the congrats. It sure feels good losing this time. And, in all honesty, much easier than the last few times I tried to lose. No restrictions on what I can eat makes it easier to eat the things that are good for me.

Jolly: Sorry to hear you might miss your horse show. I hope that your brake job isn't too costly and you will still be able to attend. My hubby struggles with acid reflux. Sometimes he is in so much pain I feel so bad. He takes Prilosec. Do you take a med for yours?? I know you mentioned a lot of stress going on. Hopefully some of that will go away.

I'll start the new thread tomorrow morning. Week 16 coming up. Wow!

Hey guys. Thanks for the support. How often I get acid reflux depends on my diet (not overeating right before bed, no spicy foods when stressed), and my stress level. Right now, it is due to stress. A few weeks ago, my father moved in with me. He is unemployed, uninterested in employment, hoping to get disability. I realize now where I get a lot of my issues from. For the sake of my finances and my sanity, I am going to have to ask him to leave at the end of the month, and then I feel like a horrid daughter. I can't win. So, the stress will be around for awhile.

Congrats on the loss. Keep up the great work.

Hi, everybody. Look forward to getting to know the newbies who've joined in since I've gone AWOL again.

Good news is that my computer situation got straightened out on Wednesday, so it'll be easier for me to log on.

The bad news is that my weight has been creeping back up. The worse news is that it is due to stress from some pretty serious stuff. My son, Eric (10 yrs old), is having problems w/ his kidneys. We found out about this a few months ago, and the doctor believed it would clear up over time, but it hasn't. They are doing a biopsy next Thursday so that they can examine a section of the kidney to see what is causing the problem. The Dr. expects that he has a chronic condition, i.e., not curable. Fortunately, his kidneys are still adequately filtering the blood, so he is a long, long way from requiring dialysis. He has absolutely no symptoms of kidney disease other than blood and protein in his urine. There is a reasonable chance that whatever the problem is can be managed with medication and diet. There is a remote chance that it is not a chronic condition at all. We are hopeful for the best but prepared for the worst. Eric is a great, great kid and I know that he is going to be able to deal with whatever he must. We'll know more early the week after next.

Chach and Chequita: So glad to hear you are doing so well! I'll be rejoining you progress-wise soon.

Hi, Lucky
