Exactly! I don't remember our girls being THIS busy! (I know, it was 20 years ago, but....) Freddy's pretty sure it's just because we were broke and didn't have as much STUFF to get into! I tend to agree.

Thank you for the welcome! I appreciate it. Oh and Carla, our little guy is 16 months. You would think with how busy he is the weight would fly off! nope, it's gone on! UGH.

Welcome Melinda!

Congrats on your re-intro! We're also doing the re-parenting thing. Who ever thought we'd be parents of a toddler again at 54?!? We're not to the point of making it official yet, though. If I don't lose some weight with this ordeal, there is something wrong.

Good luck in your journey.

Thanks for the intro, Melinda! And, congrats on the weight loss! Let me know whenever you need encouragement. I'm always around tracking my food and fitness, and try to pop in when I can. We also have a mileage challenge running this month, so if you track your miles, please join us!

Good morning,
I have been a member of this group for awhile, but I have not been active. I do not know if I ever introduced myself.

My name is Melinda. My Facebook page says I'm 24. Well, not quite, maybe almost double that! LOL I'm a wife, mother, and parenting again grandmother. Our grandson/son's adoption (with us) is coming up.

I am also a team leader of another group. I took over leadership on Jan. The group tends to go strong, then linger, then strong again. It is currently hitting the lingering stage.

Many years ago I lost 80 lbs. In this last (very VERY ) stressful year I have put 10-15 back on. This really scares me. I hit the work outs hard 5 days a week, changing things up, doing cardio and weights etc. and I track (which I HATE) my food 3 days a week. I am getting frustrated.

I'm hoping to find here inspiration, challenge, accountability and comradery.

Participate in life with enthusiasm.

Embrace your unique beauty and grace.

When someone tells me I can't, I turn around and say Watch me!

Melinda
