Talking One Day at a Time, MARCHING THROUGH MARCH

Hello Everyone! OK, OK, I'll start the new thread.

Please join us in our One Day At a Time MARCHING THROUGH MARCH CHALLENGE. We're a group of ladies who have lost a lot of weight by counting cals, exercising and drinking water. We are setting goals of how much we want to lose (or maintain) in the month of March. We report weekly each Friday morning. Next progress report: March 7. EVERYONE IS WELCOME.

We have found that life is to be lived One Day at a Time, and this includes our various ways of eating and the exercise that we do. So sip that water, move that body, encourage each other, and let's MARCH THROUGH MARCH, singing lustily and with vigor. And smiling, too, of course.

Thanks for posting. I'm sorry to hear about Joanie's mother. And I, too, hope that Dena will check in. Dena, where are you???

You are right, it has been mighty quiet. I think some of the posters are out of town.

Good to have you posting, Joanie. Hugs and cheerful thoughts are going in your direction.

As far as I am concerned we can weigh in any time we want to. Personally on maintenance I weigh in almost every day. That keeps me in focus. And each of us is doing an individual day-at-a-time march through MARCH but we aren't necessarily doing it in lockstep with each other.

So weigh when you want to, post when you can, and stay positive.

Being laid off work is no fun. Sorry about that. Guess we've all got our own little personal problems that get in the way of our lives.

As for me, I haven't been posting because I have been out of town to a funeral. My DH's sister's DH died suddenly so we went to Arizona for a few days. Got back and am trying to play catch-up with everything.

Remember, we stick with it -- a day at a time. And try to keep smiling -

Here's a verse that fits our thread. Thought I would share it with you.

One Day at a Time

Whatever the goal we're pursuing.
No matter how rugged the climb.
We're certain to get there by trying our best
And taking One Day At A Time.

"Forever" is hard to imagine.
"The future" may seem far away.
But every new dawn brings a wonderful chance
To do what we can on that day. - Emily Matthews

More snow today, Praise the Lord. We need the moisture. But everything is shut down due to the snow. Schools are closed, etc. No walking around the block for me today!

I guess I will dig out an exercise tape, and maybe do some stretching. Drink that water, think positive thoughts, watch my portion size, keep smiling.

Everyone, have a good day -

Default quote

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

always remember to forget the troubles that pass your way but never forget to remember the blessings that come each day.

have a great day everyone

1. drink atleast 8 glasses of water.
2. eat 5 or 6 small meals
3. ride bike atleast 20 minutes.
