    Just like many of you, 2016 was like a roller coaster ride and my weight is on that ride as well. In one year I lost 25 lbs and gained 20 of it back. So, I'm back at it again. I joined VIP Fitness 6 week challenge. I'm on my official day 3 and doing ok so far! Fingers crossed I can handle ... Read more

  • Helping the Elderly!

    3/22/2017 10:24:26 AM, by EOWYN2424

    Me and my family went out for dinner. We had to fill up an order form. My Mom found it difficult to read the fine print so I offered to do it for her. I just asked for which items and how many. I quickly got it done. However they mixed up our orders with another table. Good thing my Mom was obs... Read more

  • Making changes for all the right reasons

    3/22/2017 10:09:24 AM, by WYTRIX

    Well one of the right reasons to change is to lose weight, to stay healthy and strong, that is my first goal in my changes for this year. Another one is that we are contemplating moving to another state. I have lived in my home town all my life, 41 years, and would love to have a change in my enviro... Read more

  • Didn't make it to the gym yesterday

    3/22/2017 9:01:48 AM, by BERCRYS

    But I did pull out my weights and use them long enough that my arms and shoulders are a bit sore this morning, along with, oddly enough, the backs of my legs. I tried my best to sleep early and well last night so I could get up this morning and prepare to go to the gym before the heat and the busy... Read more

  • Be the captain of your own ship!

    3/22/2017 8:46:19 AM, by PCOH051610

    Hi, For those just getting to know me, let me start out by saying I live on an island in the North Atlantic so ships play a bigger part of my life than I would care to admit. I'm not a lover of boats in any shape much to my husband's chagrin. Anyway, I digress. I subscribe to a "feel good... Read more

  • Beck & Me - 21 & 22

    3/22/2017 8:44:39 AM, by CHIGGERCANE

    Day 21 Weigh In Day: I am a daily weigher. I find it helpful to see how the day before has affected me. However, I clearly remember days where I have seen an increase of 3-5 pounds overnight. I am not imagining it. And I have NEVER seen a loss of 3-5 pounds. 20 I like the idea presented of ... Read more

  • The big Change-UP

    3/22/2017 7:09:48 AM, by DETERMINED369

    This week it was easy to change things up a bit. While caring for my daughter I managed to spend a lot of time outside dragging broken branches up to the very large burn pile and raking leaves to burn. I must admit I had a burn pile so big it looked like a funeral pyre 40 but it burned up REAL... Read more

  • Never give up, never surrender.

    3/22/2017 1:10:12 AM, by PORTHOS75

    In November of 2015 I had lost 50 or 60 pounds. An emergency gall bladder surgery meant I couldn't work out for a month. The month turned into 2 and then 6 and then 16, and eventually the good eating habits were lost as well. After a recent doctors visit, I realized that I've got to get this st... Read more

  • Day Zero, Fourth Time

    3/22/2017 12:41:31 AM, by DARFINKLESDREAM

    One would think I would learn by now, eh? Nope. All I can say is I think I've logged into the site more times this week than I did when I last tried to restart. I'll take that as a good sign. Current Status: I'm even more out-of-shape, though not necessarily heavier than my last entry. I'v... Read more

    My foot, leg and shoulder all bothered me after yesterdays moving and carrying stuff around. So today I did do any of that. I did manage to almost crochet on GD a hat she asked for, picked up in the kitchen and worked really hard on my exercising. That was about all my asthma and allergies ... Read more

    I went into the office today and made it a point to walk around for a minute every hour. Adding just that bit of movement throughout the day helps me keep the joints and muscles flexible. It was chilly again today, but that's OK. The sun was shining brightly. 67 I have been invited to a... Read more

Supposed to do this for 3 weeks, then slowly add it back in to my diet with fruits instead of white sugar or high burn carbs. Well, 7 days in and lost 10 lbs. It's not water, as i'm drinking...
