I am updating my page as we moved from upstate NY to Tucson AZ. I am still unpacking and have yet to start back up finding a fitness center or exploring the facilities were we are renting. I will miss my team mates and friends in NYState. The information that follows was where I was and the wonderful support group that I left. I am competing as a team member with a great group of women. Our program is called Dare to Lose! There are some similarities to the biggest loser. We meet twice a week for 1 1/2 hours with our trainers, have challenges and weigh ins and are responsible for watching our food intake and exercising at least 2 more times a week. Each session is 8 weeks long so there is a mix of newcomers and those who have participated in earlier sessions. There is a lot of positive support from both the participants, trainers and other fitness center members. We are working hard at getting fit and losing weight.

    Creamed Cukes? Well, you slice cukes and an onion and I soak them in salt water for an hour or so, drain and add Miracle Whip, sugar, vinegar, and a little milk and pepper, to taste, and let set until meal time and then enjoy. Pretty close to the same ingred. as for Cold Slaw. I really can really over eat on them. If cukes are real big I just cut in half, scrape out seeds, and then make slices.

    Thank you for your support on my blog about my 20% body weight loss. emoticon

    I am a little worried about not tracking, so I will continue daily weigh ins to make sure I don't go into a gaining mode. I know a few members that are working on intuitive eating, so I want to look into that as well.

    Thanks for understanding. Part of my journey is to stay healthy and balanced during this process. I've added you as a friend.

    I've only read her Mrs. Murphy mysteries. Which ones have you read? She's got a series with dogs in it, I believe.
