Hi guys, new here. 6'2", 234lbs. According to the BMI chart I am obese....sheesh who knew..lol also dealing with high blood pressure all my life and am trying desperately to get off all the medications. Yeah, they have the BP under control but they play havic on the old sex life...that's just under...lol Will be 60 in October and just started here this week. I hope to get down to around 200lbs. Divorced and live alone so it's kinda tough to get started. I did started walking, a short distance, but it's something. I hope I can stick to the diet and stay away from the PASTA. I could live on pasta and hamburg...or not...just sayin. If anyone has any helpful hints I'm open for suggestions...oh and does anyone know if that SENSA works? Keep in Touch.

Walt

@ KJ - Preseason football can be a yawn. But consider it Roger Goodell's tease. This is a small taste of what's to come. When we do get week one of regular season it'll be great!

RE - the previous topic of this message board. My wife uses SP and I hope she doesn't find this lounge.

@Hail - Yep, that's why I've bellied up to the 'Guys Lounge'. I like to help out with weight loss advice and such, but after a while the 'OMG, I gained ONE pound..." and "My dog died and I'm sooo depressed...." and "My husband and I fight all the time, so I've gained weight...' converations get a little old, and more than a little depressing.

Guys aren't like that (for the most part). We would just listen a little, scratch our guts (or worse), maybe belch a little, and say "Hey, wadda come here for? Can I by you a beer? So how 'bout them Packers, huh - can they play ball or what'? Or something similar - and crack some jokes along the way too.

Now if any gal wants to be part of that scene, I say welcome - Oh, yea, and I WILL stop by the other sites from time to time to let everyone else know what worked for me on this weight loss journey, But here? Let's just hang out!

You asked.....LOL!

I don't mind a few ladies hanging out, provided they don't have a problem with us remaining our disgusting selves.

yeah, I think as long as we are not judgmental about everything they post, they are ok. To be honest with you, I'm not cutting women down, but alot of women do nothing but whine and gossip and stuff like that. I tend to think more like a man, cept for the hot women topic. LOL

Lol.

If they were irritated with me, I may rethink my forum of choice and gracefully bow out. I *think* the key thing here is balance (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)... I don't think they want a forum devoted to understanding the complex male mind for the soul purpose of relationship rescue for women etc. Besides, if every woman posted in here, it'd be just like the rest of the forums. :P

Hail, I totally agree with you. Well put, and if the guys don't like us hanging out here, well, that's just too bad. LOL

Hey, thanks Mister! I love a warm welcome!

Also, I have to say, I prefer the guys lounge because navigating through the happy/depressed/"how blank did you blank today" posts in the cafe makes me a little irritable.

I make it a point to only reply...:P I doubt I would come on here seeking support with my relationship since I can handle communicating with the hubs on my own and I don't like coming across as being another needy female. I just like the posts. A little controversy gets my heart rate up.

I'll try my best to fit in better.

As of the date and time of this post the top 8 posts on this message board are generated by females. LOL

hey, if the ladies want to hang out here and talk about their "assets" and if we like how they look, I won't stop them!

No, I don't mind the guy talk at all. Also, I would never come on here and tell you guys what and what not to think or say. Some of you have been very helpful with your advice and I like asking guys what they think about certain things and I'm not a lesbian so I could care less what other women think. LOL

I guess what I mean is, if I ask a guy what they think about something, it may help me to understand my husband better. I don't have a wife so I don't need another womans opinion. LOL

I like Amy's contributions- like Covert says, as long as she or others don't mind the guy-talk, let'em pull up a stool by our virtual bar and have a drink w/ us!

The more the merrier, as long as they don't mind the male vocabulary that appears once in a while. (For some reason, boobs seems to be a popular topic.)

well when sparkpeople starts having a girl lounge maybe I'll hang out there. In the general forums, however, as I was saying in another post, there are way too many posts of new topics that you'll be doing good to even get a reply. They get left behind too quick. I'm a female and I'm sure some of the guys here don't mind. Hey, I was a tomboy as a little girl so I'm actually more comfortable in this forum anyway.

I personally don't have mind having a woman pop in to ask a question.

But it seems there are some who have established themselves as "honorary members".

Hey, KJ here, just wondering what happened to the Guys' Lounge. I'll post a link here when I find it.

Thanks!
