There's a rumor going around that there's going to be some changes made on this Dr. Phil web site.  I don't know why they'd change things again after there was so much trouble the last time.  So I want on my "tough times"  friends to have my real email address.  Please make a note of it in your email address book.

Yes, there are new changes coming again and I know it makes it so hard for a lot of us, but we will manage once again...lol... That's a great idea to have your addy out and get others so we don't lose anyone in the transition like last time.

Hope you are doing well....Hugs Karen

There are changes happening already.....this board is being replaced by the NEW BETA board. Read the mesage in RED at the top of this screen and it will tell you where to go and what to do. A few of us, after much stumbling around have already found our way in. This board will still be here for a while but will eventually be archived. I think once we get in and figure the new Beta board out that we will probably like it, but will probably be frustrated by it for a while. At present our posts are not posted right away as they are all read and approved by the Dr. Phil staff first. Hopefully this will change in the future. Please make an attempt at getting in there. I beleive I saw your Phil to the 7th already set up there and just waiting for you gals to go in.

 

Hugs, Mairon

Hi Sharon,

 

I noticed on the other board that you have tried to appprove me as your friend and it asked for my approval too....which I think I gave. But you still are not showing in My Friends. Not sure if between the two of us we managed to mess it up or not. Will keep a eye on it and see if they still connect us or not. If not I will go to their Q & A site.

 

Thinking of you and hoping you are having a good day.

hugs, marion

Hi my dear friends...

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the long weekend....well here in Canada it is Thanksgiving today and in the States I believe it is Columbus day....so have a Happy one ....to our gal over the pond and our Aussie friends have a great day too...

 

I want to share my morning weigh in with you all...as I gained some real insight as I stepped on that scale.  This past week I have been sick with a cold /allergies and seeking some comfort in soups etc. A couple of neighbours brought over some meals for me too and so on.  As I was about to step on the scale I was quick to recall all the things I ate that would surely show up on the scale as a gain .  I had a couple of days where I ate more than a portion of things lol...Well I stepped on the scale and looked down prepared for a gain and I was shocked to see I was down 1 pound. Now to you all one pound isn't a big loss , but you see, two days ago I was UP FIVE pounds so I lost that plus one pound more....lol

What I realized is how easy it is to think of all the ways I failed in my eating plan, not looking at the fact that only 2 days last week I never followed the portions etc. Also, that I never binged at all last week...and this in turn showed this morning on the scale. I can be very quick to judge myself as I think many of us can do, so my insight is to look at the Positive steps and changes I AM DOING and work on adding more....not focusing on the negative...

Thanks for letting me share and be real for a change....Hugs and love , Karen

Can someone help me

How do I sign in to the new board.  I can not seem to find any of the beta boards.  What am I doing wrong.  I know that these will be going away but where are the beta boards and how do we find the boards we had before or is there just one help board  and no boards like we had before???     I am very confused

I ask lots of questions and luckily have sweet Marion and Shirley to help me figure it out too...lol

Go to your Beta profile, over on the left is a little white house thing , click on it and add the username of who you want to Invite as a friend in the search area and continue doing this until you add them all . Then I think once you INVITE , they will either Accept or Deny and that is when they are added to your friend list....Hope this helps... love to you and family gf...xxx

 

Alice the Beta boards are completely different from this board and others....At the top of this page wayyyy up top you will see in RED about the BETA board...click on it and it takes you to do your Profile etc....

Hope this helps some...we are all trying to figure this out too...Hope you had a great weekend with your gd's and family....Hugs and love, Karen
