I signed up again for another 5% weight loss challenge starting Mar 26th, and continuing for 8 weeks. I am a Spirited Underdog again. If you want to maintain, or lose weight, these challenges are the way to go!!! This time I am up a couple of pounds more than the starting weight last time. Time to buckle down before I continue to gain. My husband thinks I am the Most Positive Person he has ever seen. I do try to think positive and keep negativity out of my life. Even if it means no news channels haha. I live in Washington State. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh? I''m thinking that getting use to being focused on what I eat each day, will make it different this time. My family includes my husband, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a Pomchi . I have 3 daughters, 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. She is pregnant and due Feb 24 2016. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 22, 17, 5 and 3. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

    Thank you for cheering for me and for the new jeans goodie. I really need to go shopping again. It's probably been over 15 years since I've weighed under 200. It's a process and I have some more to go.

    WELCOME BACK Debby !!! WOOHOO gal,, you ready to stay steady on the maintenance road?? You have done so OUTSTANDING !! Life isn't always fair,,, and we know how much you struggled with the decision of having ur Mom moved. It just gets to the point where it's safer for them. I HATED helping my brother do this to my Dad. Dad did NOT want it. CRIED, BEGGED Me DAILY to let him go home. Since Dad was very alert we of course couldn't do the "Maybe tomorrow Dad" thing. NOPPERS, but he was SAFE there,, we were so afraid he could set the place on fire,, and perhaps not make it out !! YO!! My GD and I have talked. I helped raise her (She was at my place all but, 1 perhaps 2 days during the week) and she of course loves me,, as I DO her,, so she keeps saying "I'll take care of you, but NOT Momma!!" Her Mom is very dirty,, a hoarder,,,, I LOVE her of course,, VERY, VERY much, but yeah,, my GD is just starting out,, she's been married almost 3 yrs,,,, so far no kiddo's,, but she does NOT need that stress. I've made it easy for her,,, I INSIST I go into a nursing home. I DO NOT Want my GD to have to take care of me. She's a lovely child for wanting to do so.

    How are you doing? How did you do during the break? We had quite a few stay on. As always was FUN !! I continued to lose,, by the end this week when I weigh in (It'll be the 4th weigh in) I will be at 5 lbs GONE. I am DETERMINDED to hit my 5% goal again.

    Debbie,, you add much to the team. TY SO MUCHERS for being with us. HUGS !

    I haven't heard from you in a couple of days. Just checking on you.

    Are Emma and Holly ok? I know you miss seeing your Mom! I hope the flu-bug leaves the home ASAP.

    WTG Larry! When you find that gold mine, I want my share!!

    love you loads,
    p.s. Ray is home and I'm praying we finally have the itching under control. I had to put him back on the Lortab - but only half-strength!

    May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
    May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
    May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue.
    And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.
