THIS IS NANNYBECK! I AM REALLY SORRY TO READ ABOUT YOUR DAD! I LOST MINE TO CANCER 8 YEARS AGO AND IT BROKE MY HEART TOO! HOSPICE IS A GREAT ORGANIZATION. THE PEOPLE WITH THEM ARE SO WONDERFUL. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS! TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

FULLY RELY ON GOD HE'S OUR POWER

It is always wonderful seeing new people come to our board...smiling...Welcome...You are so right that Hospice is so awesome, and makes the transition from life to the otherside so peaceful and comforting, rather than fearful and anxious....Angels in disguise for sure....I lost my dad last Sept to Alzheimers and so no hospice was involved.. and we never cease our missing our loved ones do we? We heal as we know they are no longer suffering and are in such a beautiful and sweet place...how could we deny that for them....Oh what a glorious day when we all are re-united...!!!

Hope you come visit lots girlfriend...Hugs and love, Karen

Hello Everyone

I AM SO GLAD TO SEE THAT THE BOARDS ARE BACK UP.   HAVE MISSED ALL OF YOU.  WELCOME TO ALL THE NEWBIES AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL THAT ARE HAVING BIRTHDAYS.

I'M FINALLY BEGINNING TO LOSE AGAIN.  DOWN 1 1/2LBS THIS MORNING.  HOPE NOW EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO GET BACK ON TRACK.

KAREN, GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU WILL BE STARTING A NEW FULL TIME JOB.  HOW IS YOUR DAUGHTER AND HER TEACHING JOB GOING?  HOW ARE THE GRANDDAUGHTERS?

SHIRLEY, MARION, ESMAY, DIANE, SHARON, SHARON, AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT I HAVE NOT MENTIONED HAVE A GREAT DAY AND KEEP DRINKING LOTS OF WATER AND EATING THE RIGHT CHOICES.  TALK TO YOU ALL SOON.

HUGS, MIDGE

Happy Monday

Happy Monday to everybuddy.  Just popping on for a few minutes before my company arrives.

 

SHARON: Thank you for the brief bio on you.  How could I forget the lady who runs over kangaroos...tee hee.

 

KAREN: About the log in.....if you are the only one using your computer, maybe try not signing off the internet.....just minimize the Dr. Phil screen.  I used to do this all the time on the old board when I first started because I had such a hard time finding my way back in again. Worked for me and it was always right where I left off at too. Of course if your internet ties up your phone line, then that would not be a good suggestion. I happen to be on ADSL so it does not affect my phone line.

 

Gotta run now.  May be able to check back tonight.

PS: Where has Pooz gotten too?

I WAS JUST NOSEYING AROUND THE BOARDS AND NOTICED QUEENB WHOM I USED TO CHAT WITH A LOT! HOPE I GET A REPLY FROM HER.

 

THANK YOU FOR THE NICE WELCOME. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE BEEN AROUND THIS BOARD!

AS FOR A SUGGESTION FOR MAXIMIZING WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH THE TOUGH TIMES; THE ONLY THING THAT COMES TO MIND IS TO NOT USE FOOD FOR COMFORT BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT IS REALLY HARD. I HAVE HAD GOOD RESULTS WITH THE 3 BITE RULE! IF THERE IS SOMETHING I JUST CANNOT RESIST, EVEN AFTER THROUGH THOUGHT, I TAKE 3 SMALL BITES AND ENJOY EACH ONE TO THE MAX. IT WORKS FOR ME AND I ALMOST NEVER EAT MORE OF THE FORMALLY FORBIDDEN FOOD. I THINK THAT KNOWING ITS NOT COMPLETELY FORBIDDEN REALLY HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE IN PORTION CONTROL TOO!

 

WELL HOPE THAT HELPS A LITTLE!!!

 

THANKS AGAIN

BECKY
