Kathryn, I just saw your post. I think most of us are pretty active in our smaller teams. At least I know the Warriors are. I don't check in here often, it was mainly a hub before the challenge started, then we all started concentrating on communicating within our teams. Here's what I posted last on another chat in the BL challenge:

I just want to say I am so thankful that tracking our calcium is part of this week's challenge. I believe I eat a very healthy diet overall, with lots of vegetables daily in all colors, plus beans, fish and other healthy choices. But in my plan to cut back calcium I eat far less cheese, milk and yogurt than I used to. I eat smaller portions of most foods overall. It turns out I am only getting about half of the 1200 mg per day that I need. A couple of calcium tablets fix that, but I wasn't taking them until now. When I started tracking for this challenge, I haven't missed one yet. My bones and teeth thank you!

My hubby and I would split a bunt cake and eat the whole thing in one day. I don't eat that way anymore but he still does. He is not big and fat but would get that way if I let him. He eats lite on his Mesls but likes to have a slice of cake or pie between lunch and dinner and then one after dinner.

Thank you Kathryn, I do the same with my dressing. It is amazing how many calories that saves and it really is enough. There was cake for my mother-in-law's birthday. I had a very tiny piece with a tiny extra dollop of icing. It was amazingly satisfying. I used to eat that kind of cake and icing until I was literally ill.
Good for you on your healthy choices!

Pam well done on eating a Subway salad. I love the Veggie Delite salad with sweet onion dressing on the side. I do what I learned from WW and dip my fork first in the dressing.
Today I am fasting from lunch today until lunch tomorrow and have a few dill pickles and an apple only between. I will drink a lot of herbal tea.

I was out of town for the weekend for my mother-in-law's surprise 80th birthday. We succeeded, she was so surprised and pleased!
It was a challenge for me because we were in WV in the middle of nowhere. Finding something green to eat was tough. Who knew a Subway salad could taste so good. I exercised each day drank my water and tried very hard to eat as well as possible. NRE either! Kudos!

This time is THE time!

Some days I just feel like giving up and just saying to heck with dieting. And then the next day I get up and want to do a fasting day. Today was to be a fasting day until I got to my luncheon and they had chicken salad sandwiches with mayo of course. We also had salad and fruit. I filled my plate half full salad and half full fruit. I then took the sandwich apart and put the chicken on top my salad. I took some fruit with me to have for my 3 o'Clock snack.

I'm here and doing great, thanks for asking! I just lost track of this thread. I"m on day 7 of 100% compliance with my food plan, and I think I'm going to have a pretty big loss this week. Even if I don't, I'm feeling better, and that's great.

Went to the doctor for a pain I was having in the side of my face, and it looks like I have an infection in my jaw, either related to my teeth or just random. Sigh. Anyway, on antibiotics AGAIN, which messes up my digestion, but I am not going to let this mess me up.

I was going to drop out, I fell and hurt my back. But I have kept going and it seems to be helping. So will continue. If I wasn't part of this I would have stopped exercising and just taken my pain meds. But the movement has helped so much more than expected. I have cut back, I ride my exercise bike, do my Curves workout and walk. I am not able to run or lead the boot camp classes or boxing camp. But still active and moving. And that's what counts. Thank you for having this challenge and helping me and others get and keep moving

Sorry to see you go, Amanda, and especially because it's an injury taking you away! Be good to yourself.

@LIN1263 Wow, what a lot to go through! Doesn't sound like the doctor lied to me -- sounds like he was being cautious and double-checking, and I guess it's good he was!! Hope the tests come out okay.

Friday morning saw yearly visit with lung specialist, I have scar tissue from clots in both lungs, pleurisy,low blood pressure and lung pain even when not active, he said i was O.K. and he wanted to do lung scans with dye injection in vein & breathing radioactive gas for tests, was advised tests were to show I am O.K. & if something is wrong later they can see the change.
I went to a free church lunch, came home, hospital called left message said emergency tests need doing immediately, call them back immediately, I tried closed for lunch, they reached me, 90 minutes of scans, 2 weeks for results, I guess Dr. lied??

I had free pancakes today at IHOP with a yearly coupon.
Today I later volunteered at thrift store, all money goes to hospital, manger said 2 times to me, she can not manage without me, I am always busy, they need me, also thanked me at the end of the day for what I did there today. I am their best volunteer, other volunteers even say so!
