I hope you get the motivation you need for both your weight loss journey and to get back researching your family. I need some motivation in that area too. We may have the same problem; gone as far as we can unless something comes up and just put it aside.
In both cases, we CAN do it.

Well, if it's a chore and you feel like you've done all you care to do, quit by all means. OTH, if you enjoy doing it, why quit? That's part of the attraction for me. I get tired of it, I quit. The beauty is, when I get interested again, I just pick up where I left off. Sometimes I have to update Family Tree Maker, but everything else is just the same as when I put it down however long ago. Not many hobbies you can do that with.

Question: Do any of you stop adding to you family history? I have done the main line and have been adding the extended families of siblings etc but it is getting out of hand and I wonder how far out I should go. Once you get started and find information it is hard to stop.
