    Just saw your note on the 100 Days Challenge. The solution has been posted a couple of times but there are so many posts it IS hard to find. If you click on the Challenge thread and get to all the posts then hold down the control key (CTRL-on your keyboard) and the letter F a box will pop up somewhere on your screen. Some versions have it at the top right and some at the bottom left. It's just a blank box, begin typing in your name..."TY64" and your post should magically appear. It will take you to the last time you posted. Some people are copying the whole thing and re-pasting it with the new information...to do this you need to hit the edit button in order to add to what is already there.

    Trust me, I'm a techno-dud so I KNOW how frustrating all the new things are. I hope you find it worth it...and if it really is too frustrating then just chat on the Book Discussion page. I hope you don't give up!!

    On top of the page is a thing says SAVE and it ought to save to your favorites. Other thing on a forum is to SUBSCRIBE to it each time you are there so when someone posts you get an email sent to you. Make sure in your account you are set to receive emails. Hope this helps.

    I'm a second timer too, I've noticed that a lot of people here are. For me, It's not so much keeping motivated, for me it is a different lifestyle. The first time I joined here was in 2005, I failed miserably and dropped out of Sparks. I gained enough weight to put me over 300, I knew I had to do something. I rejoined Sparks in 2007, not so much to lose weight but to learn to live with myself. After that, It was- not to deny myself anything, but to actually allow myself to eat and not feel guilty. I learned to have patience with myself. If I have a bad day, well gee, it happens. But the good days out number the bad. And that's what matters. Having patience matters, and breaking goals up into smaller ones that makes me feel good about my progress.

    And you can do what this article suggests, (this is what I'm doing- I have over 135# to lose)...Now this article, suggests to break down your weight lose into 10% at a time. (Which is what I did) And I finally lost some weight. It is SOOOOOOO nice to see that weight lost ticker move which motivates me even more. Instead of saying...I have 150 pounds to reach my goal... by setting your "1st" goal at 10%, your closer to your goal. It's reachable - it's manage-able, it's doable.

    Here is the link to the article: The second page really gets to the heart of the article...

    Just keep smiling...that's all. Find what makes YOU happy, and have patience with yourself.
