Welcome back! glad to hear your F.I.L. is doing well. If there is anything the team can do, let us know. Also glad you get your DH to join in on your weight loss journey. It seems weight loss or any challenge seems to work better with a buddy. Good luck to the both of you!

Hi, nice to have you back with us. My goal is also to lose 1 lb per week. I even joined the Aquatic centre today. I get swimming x 3/wk and exercises 2 x week. I don't have to attend all of them but I will force myself to do at least 3 x per week. I MUST lose 20 lbs this year!!!!!
Happy to hear that you f.i.l. is doing better for now. Make sure you take care of yourself too.
HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again
Here I am again, frustrated at myself for losing focus another year later. Sparkpeople continues to send me updates and emails to remind me that I had a goal at one time to lose weight and get healthy. As I sometimes say, life gets busy and we forget about me. I'm told three times is the charm. My husband has joined the bandwagon on getting healthy with me this time. My dad passed away a year ago after a 10 year fight of Alzhemiers. Mom passed 2 yrs before. I now have two beautiful grandbabies and a father-in-law diagnosed with Dementia with lewy body...Just when i thought the craziness might slow down some. We had called hospice in to help care for my father-in-law and didn't think he would live to Christmas, but he has started to improve thanks to a lot of prayers and help from some very people. I know it may only be a few days, months or years, but we will take what ever we can to continue making memories. Sorry for rambliing, to get back on track..I've begun again to get healthy, tracking what I eat (this time everything I put in my mouth), no forgetting to write something down. My goal is to lose 1 pound a week. My husband and I began the challenge together Jan 1 and have been faithfully following the plan. Imagine my surprise when I gained a pound instead of losing a pound... I guess the holidays caught up to me. Today I woke up, spent some time with my father-in-law and said oh well, maybe this week will show a lose.
