HI KAREN,

HOW GOOD IS THIS I WAS FEELING A BIT DOWN BECAUSE WE LOST OUR BOARD,BUT AFTER SPENDING A LOVELY WEEKEND AWAY WITH HUBBY(JUST WHAT A MARRIAGE NEEDS)I ARRIVE HOME TO FIND THE BOARD IS BACK UP AND RUNNING,HOW HAVE YOU BEEN?LOTS AND LOTS OF QUESTIONSHAS EVERYBODY BEEN FINE?HAVE TO GO FOR A MINUTE BE BACK

Hi girlfriend,

It made it really difficult not having everyones email addies...a lot of us hung in together that way...unfortunately for you and a few others , you got left High and dry so to speak...without this to fall back on....well, we are here now and that's what counts right..and you got away with dear hubby for the weekend../How cool is that...or maybe hot is that..winking...

I did well initially after the boards went down, but yesterday fell out of my plan...back on it again today though...I had gained 15 pounds a few weeks ago, and have re-lost 9 of them...so it will eventually all be off again...

How has your new lifestyle been? Are you managing your exercise, water and healthy choices? Right thinking...smiling..so many neat things to work on eh? lol..

Have a great day sweetie, and it's wonderful to see you back too..

Hugs and love, Karen     320/218/150

Well Karen I have to be honest I've been pretty bad,but today is a new day and I'm starting again,i have to tell you I felt very lost without the postings I know thats a poor excuse but I'm not a very strong person a little upset in my life or change I go down hill very fast,that is one thing that I have been trying to over come it seems to be my makeup so I have to jump over it some how(that is one of my challeges this year to be stronger).Just jumped on the scales I weigh 139.7lbs I've put on 2.2lbs positive thinking I'm heading in the right direction now.I'm glad that you are back on the right path again and losing 9lbs is really great--very big pat on the back form me to you---My weekend away with hubby was just fantastic but we ate so much that I felt like I was going to burst,but now it's lots of water and IE for me,well I better go and do some housework thats the trouble with going away coming home to catch up but it was worth it,have a great day catch up after good to be back lol and hugs sharon

KAREN ARE YOU POSTING AS PG__SMILEY OR CHOOSE2WIN YOU ARE THE SAME PERSON I THINK????

Hello lovely ladies

Here it is, after midnight and I am just now getting on to read all the postings from today. Had a busy day. Slept in until 10am, then did a bit of housework and went to see my mother for a bit. Did a bit of shopping at Costco and then went out to a bar-b-que at friends place. Just now got home. Tomorrow, I am taking a day of my holidays and we are having a family bar-b-que as we have a cousin from Winnipeg visiting.

 

DIANA: Happy Birthday to you yesterday. Hope you had a good day.

 

VICKIE: Happy Birthday to you today. Have a good day with that hubby of yours.

 

KAREN: Happy Birthday to you tomorrow - in case I forget by tomorrow-tee hee. My memory fails me quite often now adays. I loved your posting about all the things that you can now do that you could not do before, and all the changes to your body.

 

MALEESE: Is that how you spell it....can't get back to the message board to check without losing this posting.  I am impressed with how much you have lost in less than a month. How did you do it? You must have been able to just stand on the scales and watch the needle go down.....LOL. I started out at 310 and got down to 254 and then I started climbing again when I started working evening shift and went back up to 270. I think I have lost about 4 lbs of that (maybe not after tonight's bar-b- que). I think I am ready to give this the good old college try again. I would appreciate any tips you can give me on how you lost yours. I would be quite happy even to lose 15 lbs in a month. One thing I do know is that I have to get out and do some walking again. I have been idle tooooooo long.

 

SHARON: Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so glad that you were able to go back to be with your mom and dad at this time. Hang in there sweetie.

 

OTHER SHARON: As I mentioned above, my memory fails me at times. I feel like I should know who you are, but I cannot recall.  Possibly you joined us while I was working that evening shift. I know a few did, but I just did not have the time to keep up with it all, so there could be a few others here that I do not remember too.  Please tell me a bit about yourself so that I will be able to get to know you.  All the best in your WLC journey.

 

Love ya all.

(((((((HUGS)))))))
