So glad to hear you are enjoying the little guy! I just love babies. Since I have none yet, I have to get my baby fix at the nursing home! They are all my "babies"! Lots of exclamation marks -- babies make me smile

Nice to hear you are able to maintain with eating "normal" stuff. I do hope to get there again. I was doing so well for a week, had a bad day yesterday, but going to get right back into it today.

I am trying to get back in here and check in, but haven't quite gotten that into my routine yet. I am trying.

Hope Angie is OK too... I think I have her email, I will give that a try.

Edited: Just sent an email

Hi Guys,

I've missed talking to you. I'm going to get back on plan the Monday after the Superbowl. I haven't got on the scale in so long but I KNOW I'm up there. I also am quitting smoking, and that's why I picked that Monday. Hopefully I can be ready to focus on success.

Will check in later.
Have a great day!!!

Glad to hear from you Angie! I have been thinking of you.

Hope you had a fun trip, Kris! Your little guy is really getting big! He is a cutie pie.

I have been putting everything I eat in a diet diary ( counts calories) for the last 3 weeks. I am losing slowly, about 2.5 lbs a week, but I am content and keeping at it. I was up to 176, but am finally down to 166. ( Hiding my head in embarrassment)

Hi all! I have been writing down everything I eat for almost a year now. It really does help. And 2.5 pounds a week is awesome! I was only losing about a pound a week. I gained on this vacation, but have lost half of it back off. Will probably take a while for the rest and then 10 more I hope. I have not been getting any exercise. The sleeting rain has just now hit us. Supposed to be a big ice storm till late afternoon and then raising temps should make it OK to drive. I hope so cause I have to take the little guy back home. Had him over night. He is getting to be a lot of work now that hes almost 14 months. Starting to get into stuff and test me

So lets all stick with it this week!!

Congrats and good luck! It seems like decades ago now that I quit. It still smells good to me when I smell someone smoking. But I am glad that I quit. You can do it. The first year was hardest for me of course, but after that I didn't miss it as much. Every day older that I get, simple things get more difficult to do. It seems life is just slipping away one day at a time and I will never get to do the things I spent my entire life"looking forward" to doing.

It snowed last night and is 9 degrees today so NOW I am looking forward to warmer weather and being able to walk outside and ride my bike. I am hating to even have to go out into the cold 20 mph winds and go to the dentist in a couple of hours. Then I will walk inside our mall. Not as much fun as outside but only option right now.

I am going back on plan Monday too, and on my Oxy pro elite and raspberry ketones. I had some left from when I lost the 20+ pounds last year and I think it helped. I have kept most of it off, just gaining back a little bit over the recent vacations.

Hope you have a great day. I really miss talking to you guys!!

I am so looking forward to spring. It's going to be windy here for the next few days. Hopefully it won't be a dust bowl since we did get some rain yesterday!

How are you guys?

Still not on plan yet. Doing well on the not smoking. Just a couple more weeks and I will be done. Then I can think about losing again.. Not much new here except work.
Have a great day!

Good to hear from you Angie! Congrats on the not smoking. Not much new with me. Still trying to hang in there, attempting LC and watching calories. Want to lose 10 more in the next couple of months but I always seem to have my usual setbacks with the beer and tortilla chips once ever couple of weeks. It is still really cold here (below average for this time of year) so I've been walking at the mall which is really boring. We've had snow showers almost every day for the last two weeks. Still have snow piled up in the yard and it's the middle of March I would feel alot better if I could at least get outside and walk. Hope all is well with Diane too!

I am finally a non smoker. Day 3 without a cig. YAY me. Now I can concentrate on my other vices.

Congratulations again Angie! I am so happy for you. It is great to quit. Hey what city do you live in again? My DH wants us to take off for San Antonio this Spring. He said it's 90 degrees there? I forgot what part of Texas you were in.

He's just wonderful. I have him over night tonight. He's at a pretty entertaining stage right now and fun to be with. Lots of kisses and hugs too!

Hi Shulamite! So good to hear from you. I have often thought about you and wondered how you were. I pop in here from time to time, but don't hear much from Diane or Angie. I hope they are doing well. I just started NO-carb yesterday (again). Was doing OK, had been keeping weight around 135-140 after I retired but lots of vacations this past year pushed me back up to 150 so I am doing Meat/egg/cheese right now for a few days and running on the treadmill again. I hope all is well with you.
