b. Strength training at least 3 days per week.

3. Team participation

    Thanks for pulling Lobsterman to the Stars Team. I knew I would be sad if he didn't make "our" team. He's all set to post everyday and with me along, he'll get a gentle reminder about it.

    He's looking to lose about 10 pounds and my goal is bigger than the 5% (11.6 Pounds). I want to go for about 11% and I'm going to look at this challenge like that and hopefully get out of the blocks a lot earlier than the last challenge.

    Already working on it.

    Have a good one.

    TY VERY VERY MUCH !! I tried and tried this but yeah,,, I am totally USELESS when it comes to doing new things, though how you explained it makes sense !!

    I just put on the thread that's it's there,,, and Ceri told me how to put the name of the document (well I did it on the spreadsheet,, LOL See what I meant by NOT understanding???) So its titled Vet Record and when opened it explains things well.

    I REALLY DO get easily frustrated with puters.. When I get to stumped and the puter isn't doing what I want it to do,,,,, I just buy a new one.
