From the home page, click on bulletin boards, scroll down till you see "weight loss journals" (about 3/4 of the way down) and click on it. The "New Thread" button is at the top left of the screen.
Hope that helps!

Where did you wander off to? Or did your son tie you up and put you in a closet somewhere?

He may have painted her into a corner with his "favorite finger paint (we all know what that is) & has her held captive so she cant get to the computer

Seriously though... I hope she is just busy getting the brewing business going & will be back soon.... can someone search to see if she is posting anywhere here??? I dont know how to do that.... Hugs!

Ah, Melissa. It happens to the best of us. You are rocking it like nobody's business, and then you suddenly collapse and can't take it anymore... and facing your journal is the hardest thing in the whole world. This I know. From experience. Over and over again. I'm here to tell you, it's no big thing to pop in, say "Oops, I messed up!" and let us all give you knowing hugs and welcome you back. It's okay, it really is.

But, it's not okay to let it go too long and undo all that glorious hard work you did. DON'T LET IT GET AWAY. I did-- I let it get away for a whole year, and I am now right back at square one. AGAIN. Don't make the mistakes I did. Follow Amber's lead and just keep charging through, even when mistakes are made. It's the only way to keep going all the way to goal.

So, big hugs, and come back in with your head held high like nothing ever happened, and pick up right where you left off. No one here is perfect. Miss your bubbly personality and pizazz!

(This is, of course, assuming nothing is ACTUALLY wrong with you or your loved ones, and you are just too shamed to show the face you stuffed with bread after being so good for so long, which is something I've done too many times. Hope all is well in the real world!)

I'M HERE!!! I'M HERE!!!


Lowly absentee miscreant that I am .

Forgive me please?

I've missed you all and it's my own fault.

Good news and bad news. Good news is that I have not gained. The bad news is that I have lost ever so slowly because of a lack of exercise. I have been "good" on atkins. Meaning that I have been eating low carb foods but have not been counting or logging my food or exercising. I'm down to 219.8 this morning. I was down to 219.4 after my work out, but I want to wait till tomorrow morning to claim it.

I might have started working out and all sooner, but my house has taken me over. I painted two rooms, had the carpets cleaned, spot painted all the dirty walls, got my kitchen cleaned out, got my room cleaned out...... In other words I've developed a sudden obsession with trying to get my house in the shape it was before my back pain made me a total slob. Then about a week and a half ago my husband had an accident at work and broke his hand. Today was his first day back at work (light duty, the one handed gimp style).

Of course none of that is an excuse for not popping in and letting you know that I did not trip and fall face first into a river of chocolate.

Ok, got to go put the kids to bed.

OK girl! We just missed you. Life happens! Sometimes it is so consuming & with children (adult men included) it can be more than a full time job. We worry when we loose track of someone like when Tiggy went AWOL... We are just glad you are ok. As for excerising???? I renovated my house over a 8 month period & that is exercise & work. You will be so glad you took the time to do it!
