    I just thought I would stop by and let you know you are not the only one struggling to lose this week and I have been struggling this whole spring challenge. As long as we don't give up we can be successful, so let's just keep going. There has been a lot of chatter about the Keto Diet and I know two of our teammates who are doing quite well following it, but it is really low in carbs. I am thinking about it and doing some research on it. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you are not alone in your struggles to lose weight. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Deb,

    I hope you have a great day today for Mother's Day!! My back is still hurting, so I am going to rest other than doing some laundry today. My granddaughter and I went out to eat yesterday and went shopping, so that flared up my back and hip pain again. I see you are following the Beck Diet Solution and do you find you are doing better with these principles? I have been trying to do the things Mr. Owl has presented and have found it somewhat helpful, but not that great at following it religiously. I also thought about trying the Keto Diet that Dawn does, but I have tried so many things that haven't worked, so I am getting confused about what I want to do. I have been at a plateau for so long I am beginning to wonder when or if I will get to losing again. This week I gained and have no good reason why other than maybe not eating enough. Oh well, all I can do is keep trying, but I value your opinion too! You seem like you have been losing, so that is great!!! Have a great day today and stay in touch. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Deb,
    Are you finding your way around the Firecracker Team Page? Is there some way that I can help you? We are here for you and want to help you with your challenge to lose 5% of your weight in 8 weeks. We all have our struggles, so just try to follow whatever plan you can. I know real life interferes with the best of plans, but try to get in the habit of tracking what you eat, so you know where you need to make changes. Even a little bit of exercise every day helps too. I have added you as a friend on my Spark Page, I hope you don't mind as we are Firecracker teammates and I am your motivational leader! Please visit my page and read my blogs and get to know me. I am 69 years old and have been heavy all of my life and I still struggle every day to try to lose weight and be healthy. Believe me when I tell you I wish I would have found this site years ago as I am learning so much about nutrition and all of the support that is here to help, so please reach out and if you are confused, please reach out to the leaders and the way to get there is just click on the picture for the person on the team page. I am looking forward to getting to know you better and also visit the Sizzler's Chat as it will help you get to know your teammates. Just do your best for yourself and we are all here to support you. emoticon emoticon emoticon You can do it, I believe in you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
