Hi team! Anyone have any ideas for what our March challenge should be?

I will be gone for one week during the middle of the month, but will still have access to a computer.

All suggestions are welcome! Thanks!

Hi Marlene,

I so enjoyed your posts when you first joined the team that I hope you will find a way to keep us included in your activities.

But I'm happy knowing that you are still healthy and that your lack of response is from being busy. It seems there are certain times of the year that a person gets busier than at other times.

Take care and don't forget us. The Team misses you.

I am still working three days a week but I am so busy at home and helping DH that I am thinking pretty seriously about going PRN and being home more. I am off to take DGD to her GYN today in Wichita. Her DH works and takes the car so grandma gets to be taxi.
Not doing good on my eating, can not seem to get back on track.

Hi - wonderful to have activity on our site. I can feel your happiness Eve. I don't know what it is like not to have good eyesight and I don't want to find out. I read your message on my SP page but wanted to send my Aloha to you and to you Marlene. Haven't heard from Munchkin yet and there was a Sparkarino here. I have kept my weight down and am exercising but am a big stand still. I don't want to rest on my laurels yet - maybe I will in 30 more pounds.

Hey - we're all shorties in this group. Being short has it's problems when it comes to carrying weight. We show every pound! But I think I skipped weighing 98 pounds. I have always been very muscular and stocky. In fact if I keep on working out and not losing weight - I will look like a sumo wrestler.

I am struggling tonight with wanting to exercise and with wanting a cold beer. But I have one more evening before weigh in and I want to have my weight down a bit. Today I babysat most of the day and little Haley just left. So it's off to my exercise room. I can do it. I'll log in my exercise in a bit.

Hi Eve,
You know what is hilarious? I have brown eyes also, but if you want to rid mass confusion, just call me the munchkin. That is super, you being at 154.6! hopefully, I might see that weight. With such a small group, we can give each other lots of support and confidence. emoticon

Hi Judy,
When I was 28, I weighed 98lbs. I was married at age 30, and the pounds went up. It wasn't a happy marriage, but he died in 2002. Now I am married to my soul mate. He is a teddy bear and quite opposite of my deceased. So hopefully I will lose weight. My highest weight was 175 now I am 168.It seems like I stay between 165 to 173. Good luck Judy,137 sounds great. Just look at losing in 2 pound increments.

Well Hello to my two Judy's! How's that for mass confusion in a group so small.

You know, it doesn't really seem to matter how much weight you have to lose, it always seems to be coming off too slow. I'm like Judy in many ways, I keep going up and down. I don't believe it takes 3500 calories to make you gain a pound, one day I know it was just because I ate 3 of those nice soft Grand's (110 calories each)! But when I stepped on the scale this morning it was down a bit 154.6, and I'm hoping for our WEIGH-IN date tomorrow it will be a bit lower.

By the way, Judy (brown eyes) I didn't know it, but you and I are the very same height. But I'm 5'2, eyes of blue.....

Keep up the good work, gals! emoticon

Hey Judy my name is Judy too. I am 5'2' tall so I know what it is to have every bit of weight show on me. I finally saw the scale drop this morning. I'm down to 170.5 AGAIN. I say again because I keep getting to that weight and then going back up to 175. It was just a year ago I weighed 166 and a year before that was 163. And to think I weighed 137 most of my life and I thought that was fat!!! Now 137 is my goal weight. Keep it up Judy from Judy

Hi BROWNEYEDBUG,
The weight is very slow for me. Yes, nutrition is very important. The main thing for me is I am not giving up. But for my height, 4'8", every bit of weight I lose or gain, it shows.

Hey Munchkin, It is good to have you aboard. Welcome. I think all of us are young at heart here. Sometimes I look at my Team name "Retired Seniors" and I say "What, me??? I need to lose weight too but the cool thing about SP is what you learn. Course I have to say that because the weight isn'[t coming off very fast. I would settle for my weight even coming off slow. But truly, I have learned a lot just logging into my nutrition every day. Hope to hear from you real soon.

Hi Munchkin -- I'm Eve (the group leader) and I'd like to welcome you to our little group. We're a really friendly group here, so we'd like to know your first name and perhaps what state you live in.

Take a look at our Monthly Weigh In, it's coming up on February 1st. And we also will be playing some sort of game every so often. How about Huddling with us. Trying to get people to do that. Under the main page on "Retired Seniors" just scroll down until you see HUDDLE on the right side. Click it and then write in your message or click on one that is already written.

Again! Welcome, keep posting (check out some of our areas where we already have topics going).

I joined 1/6/08. I have been retired since 2004 and love it. I am only 4'8" and a young 63. It seems like I have been dieting for practically all my life. I know it is what and how you eat foods. I am very upbeat, positive, and down to earth person. I would love to be part of this group, plus being supportative and helpful. emoticon
