Hi Niki and greetings from Canada. Sometimes I think that the name of the team should be, "Those who almost get to their goals but then end up going backwards again for a time". That is me. But in the end, it still makes me a slow loser. I love this group because it puts no pressure on us to get to a certain point by a certain time. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the future.

Welcome to the team, Niki, and best of luck in your journey to better health! I so agree with your comment about reaching "binge" mode when trying to go at a fast pace (been there, done that!). This is a great group and am looking forward to hearing about your progress.

Welcome Niki, sounds like this is the team for you. Great that you understand your body and its needs.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Hi! I'm Niki. I'm new here. I love the humor implied by the name of the team! It's also so much true. Yes, I'm a slow loser, the slowest, and that's the only way I can do it. Whenever I try to speed things up, I end up having a binge. So it's got to be slow. Add to that my thyroid problems and here comes the slowest loser!
