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
Welcome to the team. As some have already said, it's a great group and there are a lot of people here to help and encourage you. I trust you will find lots of support and finally win your battle with those pesky 8 pounds plus any more you want to lose.
Hi , nice to have you on the team. There's lot of support here, so don't hesitate to reach out.
On another note, I'm glad to hear you mom is doing better, but I'm also very aware of how difficult it is to care for an aging/ill parent. I am in the same situation. My mom (79 years old)) is also suffering with sever lung disease, not cancer, but a condition that has rapidly progressed and has mom in a weakened condition and on oxygen 24/7. While we are busy taking care of them, it is easy to forget to take care of ourselves and we tend to put our needs on the back burner. Just remember that if you don't take care of yourself, no one else will. Make sure you are on your priority list.
Progress, not an Perfection....

I have lost the same 8 lbs over & over this year. Next I am going to work harder at my weight loss. I live with my mom who I help take care of because she has a lot of health problems. She jus had part of her right lung removed from cancer. This is her 3rd time with the cancer. Right now they said she is doing really well they got all of the tumor.
