This group is for those dealing with the challenges of being fit when you have a significant amount of weight to lose which becomes harder after age 40. If you're an old or new friend and not over 40 and feel this is the place to post, jump right in!

Good morning ladies, how are you? Where are you? LOL!

You are welcome Liliann, always glad to see new faces. Sometimes we are a little slow around here, but that is because some of our ladies are super busy with work etc. I am retired so I have plenty of time unless I have visitors. (which is often at times). You can do it! I see you are ready to start with exercise now. Good going!

Another lb. gone. I am at the lowest weight I have been since???? Not that it is all that low. LOL! Just hope it keeps up this pace.

Hope you are all having op days. And this: goodscale Ruth What happened to my goodscale?

Morning all! Yes - Debbie's sister's health is such a reminder - we must take care of ourselves. I think we are all busy taking care of others - time for us too!

Ruth - that is the best news I've heard today, think tomorrow I won't turn on the TV and just listen to the broadcast of "Ruth's Good News".

Mornin' all,

WW day for me. Wonder what the scale will say? Maybe I should have Ruth express her scale up here to my WW meeting.

Welcome Lilliann. Glad you've joined us.

Deb: I'll keep your sister in my prayers. Sounds like she's got a rough road ahead and needs all the prayers and healing wishes we can send. BTW, I'm proud of your using that mini-tramp. I'd probably fall off before I got the second foot on it.

Ruth: You are doing fantastically well. Huge congrats on your new, old weight. Now the adventure really begins!

Off to get ready to face the day. Back this afternoon.

Hi everyone:

I've started training again, which has had the unexpected side effect of helping me to control my eating. Except for last night, when good intentions were my downfall. I'm hoping to get back to pre-vacation weight before Christmas, and I'd love to lose at least half of that by December 3 for an enormous party that we attend every year. I'm guessing no new dress this year, as I've not had the success I had last year, but new shoes, for sure

Happy Wednesday, and may the rest of your week be even better than the beginning.

Back from w/i. Lost another 1.6 lbs last week. (Also went down another point from my daily WW points allowance).

Hey Angela ...... 288.2 lbs. Sound familiar? Guess we are still losing at just about the same rate.

Hi all, and welcome Liliann (isn't it welcome back?)

Heather, you and me both, girl.

Ruth, WTG!!! I'm just a teeny bit lower than I've been since, um, 2001. YAY for us!!!!

I've so totally lost my exercise momentum that I'm starting over at 10 minutes a day. Have to keep healthy over the holidays--and now's the time to gear up.

Weight's been continuing to come off slowly, and I realize that I've managed to change some eating habits--but exercise isn't yet a habit.

I'm also going to try to get back to checking in with you all daily. I spend a LOT of time helping my students, not enough time helping myself. That goes for you too, Heather!

Okay, I have a 10-page paper to finish over the next two days, so I'm going to get writing. See y'all soon.

Angela

Thanks for all the prayers for my sister. Im scared but trying to be strong for her. Please go to the dr regularly and let them check you over. She was afraid to go to the dr and let this health issue go untreated for yrs.

I was craving butter beans yesterday so I measured out a serving. Wow 100 calories per serving. They hit the spot and Im feeding them to the kids with lunch today. I dusted off the weight system in the basement and used it yesterday morning while changing out loads of laundry. WOO HOO

Good Morning all - today is an extra day off work for me. Mani/pedi with a friend, catching up on photo albums (I'm 2 trips behind) and a nice pot of soup to warm me up. Starting to think of easy meals for DH to fix when I have surgery - he's pretty good in the kitchen but doesn't realize you don't have to use fat to cook everything.

Stay strong!
