Hey yawl:
I have lurked here for a while but not posted much. I am in my 5th week of maintenance so decided it (lifetime) is getting close, so I decided to jump in. Maintenance has been going well for me. I had a slight gain the first week but have since dropped it and more. I am now about 4# under my personal goal. I am still "playing" with my food (my mom always told me not to do that. slap! slap!) trying to see what works. I am just going to set small goals all along the way to see what happens. Well here is my bio:
HANDLE/NAME: Georgia Peach

AGE/BIRTHDAY: 48 years young 6/26/51

MARITAL STATUS: married to my best friend and have been for 28 years

SIGNIFICANT OTHERS NAME:Virgil

CHILDREN/AGES: 2 Paul -25 years old and
Kelli - 20 years old

FAVORITE TV SHOWS: ER ( don't ya just love it)

FAVORITE COLOR: bright yellow

STARTING WEIGHT: 168.8

PRESENT WEIGHT: 127

GOAL WEIGHT: I am below goal at 131 - for how long?? Who knows?

HEIGHT: 5'2"

EYE COLOR: brown or hazel - according to what I'm wearing

HAIR COLOR: Only my hairdresser knows for sure - my mirror says auburn right now

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I am really hard headed. When I make up my mind to do something I try real hard to stick to it. As I get older I am concerned for my health - my mom died of a heard condition.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:
Variety of foods - I really seem to get in a rut and get bored with my food choices.

OCCUPATION: banking - computer operations and software training

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION: Northeast Georgia

E-MAIL ADDRESS: psuttles51@hotmail.com

How quick can it be. May be a little different from the rest but I just copied it from another thread. Hope to get to know more of you better soon.

Felicia,

I'm not sure what's going wrong. Have you tried using the 'Ctrl C' (hold both keys down simultaneously to copy the blank bio) and then 'Ctrl V' (again hold both keys down simultaneously to paste) when you're in the 'Reply' screen? That's how I do it, and it always works for me.
