Welcome fellow Southerner! Good luck on your continued efforts.

Sometimes the tape measure is a better way to see progress than the scale :)

If you've exercised a lot, you might have increased your muscle mass, and that's healthy. I didn't notice if anyone said it - but it's "old hat" that muscle weighs more than fat - so don't think about a number while you're getting healthy.

I've seen quibbles about this old "truth," but it seems a likely explanation. Keep up the good work.

Hi and welcome to the team :-)

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Hi
I'm new my name is Sandy, I wrote one intro about myself but wasn't sure if I had it in the right place. Slow is for me since I'm having hard time losing at all. I have exercised more than I ever have in the last 3 months and have not lost any in about two months. Actually gained 4 pounds back last week. Hope it water gain. I'm really getting down in the dumps about it and was hoping this team might cheer me up some if I talk to others with same slow results. Thanks for having me on the team. emoticon
