I'm here sipping my Zhena Gypsy Vanilla Chai tea, goofing off 'til quitting time and saw this card and just had to copy it here.

google Zhena gypsy tea and go to the site, there's a variety of tea that is awesome. I bought mine at the Vitamin Shoppe, but it's cheaper online (for you, not me. stupid import charges) and I think Whole Foods has it too if you have one close to you.

I really enjoy it. Anna turned me into a chai tea fanatic.

Thanks for the compliments ladies. Lory you are a pretty lady. My pic was taken in May I believe, I look pretty much the same, maybe a bit fatter I guess.
I ate a grilled chicken salad at lunch today and have been sick as a dog since. I left work and didnt think I would make it home without crapping myself.
That waas 4 hours ago - and my tummy still hurts and is quite rumbly. So I am done eating for today. Off to make myself some tea...

Good Afternoon lovelies! It feels good to be back.

This Challenge is to get ourselves back on track, to be motivating, give and receive positive feedback, to share recipes, ideas or even things about life out of LCF that maybe everyday a struggle or a success.

So far the rules of this challenge are that that there are no rules. (I'm channeling Fight Club )

Not exactly rules but,

*Introduce yourself
*share the meal plan you are following, if any
*try to post everyday (it's good to be accountable)
*Thursdays are weigh-in days (you don't have to share the number, maybe just the amount lost or gained)



I'm sure we'll think of more, I just wanted to get this on here before I'm swamped.


Doing this as a monthly thread to see how we do.
Are you, Anna & me the only 'original' members of the MMFM group left? We had such a great supportive group of girls! I miss them!

I miss you ladies so, so much. You always helped me to stay on track and it is also good to have girlfriends I can vent some of my real life drama to.

*Introduce yourself - KarbieGrl aka Anna
*share the meal plan you are following, if any - Low Carb
*try to post everyday (it's good to be accountable) - that's my goal - daily posts
*Thursdays are weigh-in days (you don't have to share the number, maybe just the amount lost or gained) - I will share the number--it hurts but its the only way I can really be honest with myself.

I am really looking forward to this...for realzies!!!
ANNNNNNNNA! Squeeeeee!!! I'm so happy that the group has gotten back together!!!! I not only missed the dieting support, I missed sharing & supporting each other through our real-life dramas, too!

I believe Heidi will soon join us. The 3 of us, a few years back, became weight loss buddies through a daily challenge thread. We were successful in losing weight, blowing off steam, and lifting each other up when we needed it most. We have reconnected and agreed to get back to business here. We have shared a lot, and sometimes we get a bit off topic. Please know that not everyone will get or appreciate our humor, so I apologize up front if we offend. It's all fun. Thanks for joining us and I look forward to learning and losing together.

What she said!

It's so good to be together again!

Grand babies....I wish! Did I tell you that Sami & Steven have moved to Fort Lauderdale for his job? *sob* They moved in February and will be there for about 2-years...They came home in May for a few days...I miss her sooooo much....I told them when they left that the first thing that happened when they got there would be that she would get pregnant....and the baby won't know me.... Mitch & Sharon are not talking babies right now....I am, but they're not! LOL

Hello ladies. Mind if I jump in here with ya'll?

My name's Danielle and I'm doing DANDR. Just recently got back from a vacation and struggling to get my footing back underneath me. The scale is very unkind to me (and has been for over 4 weeks), it doesn't seem to move no matter how well I eat. Clothing started fitting different very early on when I restarted low carbing, so I didn't worry too much about the scale......but now, it's getting really old staring at the same freakin number!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone and having some fun along the way!

Since I have already posted about 20 times, I guess I should introduce myself to the newbies!

*Hi all! I'm Heidi. I turned 50 *ack, ack* last February....although, in my mind I'm still in my early 40's....maybe 30's....LOL. I have been married to the love of my life for 31-years. His name is Louis, and you will probably hear a lot about him from time-to-time. LOL I'm mom to 2 awesome kids...my daughter, Sami is 25 and is married to a great guy named Steven...my son, Mitch is 29 and married to a beautiful girl named Sharon....more about all of them later! I work for a local CPA firm...It's great except during tax season! I love my family, the beach, high-heels (shoes in general, actually), and all things animal-print!

*I am LCing. My plan was to start this past Monday, but I took a couple of days off work, and it is so hard to start a diet when you are vacaying! So, tomorrow it is!

*I will post every day - pinky swear!

*I will be sharing my weight, not just the number of pounds lost or gained. I think seeing the actual number in black & white really brings it home for me....It also makes me want to cry....and throw up!

I look forward to getting to know all of you new girls and to hanging-out with Karen & Anna again! *muah*

Hey Danielle, welcome to the thread...I am new also....
hey I used to have the very same Ticker...how cute...
as far as the scale being stuck...mine does that too after doing lc for a while...I get really sensitive to carbs....in order for me to lose I have to take out the cheese, dairy in general and most nuts....then I lose again....just some thoughts that might help u
