Good Morning,
Rebecca, I'm sending you "virtual" peace and strength. Parenthood is never easy, and if it provides any hope for you, I found that the most rewarding moments happen after the most difficult times.
Stay strong.
Sometimes I listen to my empty house, and while I know it seemed like the tough times would never end, they did. And now I feel like I have launched some pretty great people. You will too.
Well, here we go, off on another adventure! A cold one!
Later, friends,
Mary Ann

It's another rough day at home. Parenthood is super hard these days. Feeling like a complete failure and wishing I knew what I could do to help children be what I know they can be rather than watching them digress into angry hurtful people. How many tears must a mother cry before things improve?

Good Afternoon,
OK, I can see that Texas will be my "happy place" that I go to these days. I think it's 32 outside right now, flurries...but I must say that it's pretty, and the streets seem OK.
So busy, so I'll talk to y'all tomorrow,

Snowing here as well. Kiddos wanting to go out and play in it. Not so much for me. I'll get out in it later when the snowing part slows down.

Good Morning!
I apologize for not posting. I have no excuses except for being wicked busy. No excuse, because I really do gain strength and motivation from all of you.
Lost a couple of pounds, Hooray!
Cold cold cold cold cold outside! Lots of snow in the forecast.
Later, Friends,

This week seems to be flying by - we're having gorgeous weather today too - just a bit cooler, and such a nice day for a walk outside.

Food choices were not so good today - someone brought in fun size candy bars for the office - what makes them so fun? They are "evil sized"...LOL! I ate 2 - ouch.

Otherwise, looking forward to a good walk to feel good after dinner shortly.

If hunger isn't the problem, then eating isn't the solution!

we're still here but Bonnie asked to quit the weighing in on the contest cuz we both get forgetful. I am getting to that point where I'm starting to not want to be seen in public anymore since I keep coming back to higher weights than start weight BUT I am getting back to basics (again) with Healthy Choice planned out meals etc so I do feel alot better

Sounds like a good plan Rebecca - we all need motivation and the reminder that this truly is a journey, and it has many bumps in the road at times.

I had an "ok" day, but have been at least trying to get my Step Count in today by walking between commercials.

Would anyone like to do a live chat? I know we can't meet in person practically but maybe this could help. Let me know if you are interested, what time zone you are in and what times are good for you. I will figure it out. I know SP has some chat features but if that doesn't work I will find something!

Thanks for the pep talk Rebecca! I really needed to read that. I have been slacking big time when it comes to posting. My weight just seems to be going up and up. Yes its only a little bit each time but those little bits sure do add up. I cant exercise again cause of medical issues and my eating hasnt been the best. I have been thinking about going to WW meetings again because I need that "In person" thing but we cant afford it right now. Anyways, now I feel like I am wining.

Ok, this is where we all end up jumping ship. This team is supposed to be about fun motivation. That's what the whole contest thing is. It isn't about having bad weeks and then getting depressed. That is when you need to be here the most. Believe me, I have had some bad weeks. I had a great weight on Monday and then I bloated. So I lose nothing again. Very annoying. But I have to keep trying because the alternative is giving up.

PLEASE keep posting, even if you think it's depressing. Give us a chance to encourage you when you are down. No one is perfect!

I hear the echo too Rebecca! Well, it's been a busy week - but I managed to hit my Goals today with the Armband - absolutely love this "little angel on my shoulder" - it really pushes me to do more.
