I am from TX and retired to the Philippines 5 years ago. My channel is mostly 'day in the life' stuff. There is a playlist for my weight loss, my illness, house building, wandering around... more expat related but an odd mix. https://www.youtube.com/c/TitoTimVideos

Back in TX I was in a Meetup group for vegetarian atheists... man talk about some holier than thou militants ha ha... too much for my tastes.

@TUKARAMA If you feel like sharing your YouTube channel, please do!

I don't have a Facebook, but I spend a fair amount of time on Twitter. Also SP, of course, and a community for people who eat the same diet as I do. I used to hang out in more atheist forums, but it's really hard to find those where the people aren't a bunch of racists and sexists. It's almost like atheists are real people with real flaws or something, and not perfect! Can you even believe it? emoticon

I was looking up that Jason Kessler today on the net. Hope there's no violence at his White Nationalist march. Can't we all just get along?

Going to run errands today and do my exercise.

I have been kind of less on the net, too. Not for privacy concerns, but Facebook has become toxic. I have a small YouTube channel so I spend a lot of time on that (about my only hobby). But I keep it happy and positive.

There are 2 atheist groups on FB I check in with every few day (one Filipino, one not). emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have quite a lot going on this morning, then a long break when I plan to go to the YMCA.

Well... that diet break turned into almost a year... ha ha...
Today is my first day to log in this year. I am going to try and get back into tracking. I did pretty well at intuitive eating this year, but the last few months I gained a little back again. Today was easy, 1,700 calories, and a 55 minute (4 km) walk.

Yeah, we all have to assess our privacy needs. I've been on the internet with my real name since the '90s, and it's comfortable for me. Most of my social life is there; I've met most of my partners there, and almost all of my good friends. I think it will always be a big part of my life.

I've tried to be less "on the net" than before too! Even here at Spark, I limit the number of teams and boards where I participate. I worked for a company that educated us on net security all the time, so I never got in Facebook and Twitter and a lot of the options because of that.

Back in the day, I was on the Atheist Coalition on Yahoo groups, two or three Humanist groups on Yahoo & AOL, and a few Meetup groups. I've become more and more of a hermit the older I get, though, so I don't really have the need for the kind of social contact I wanted when I was younger. Or at least SparkPeople, McDougall, and Twitter satisfy that for me.

I love the online humanist communities I've encountered so far; maybe next time I feel like an in-person gathering, a humanist one would be a good choice. (I identify as both humanist and atheist, but you're right, there is a lot of ideology among atheists that I disagree with. And to tell the truth, I've found a lot of sexism and racism in those communities, as well.)

Intuitive: You are absolutely right about hit and miss. I also go to an Atheist meeting, but the only thing guaranteed is that you have a group of people who don't believe there's a Daddy in the Sky. Other than that, they can be all over the spectrum politically. Some are just plain radical and belligerent. I love my Humanist group, because the people have a philosophy and they tend to be more left progressive. ??But maybe that's what you encountered at your particular group and didn't like - those lefty progressives?? (Just kidding) emoticon It's really hard to tell what the Atheist group is going to be like until you go...and it morphs!

I can sure feel that! :-) My kid is moving out of the spare room tomorrow, and next weekend, we're going to set that room back up as my exercise and practice room. The piano's already in there, and we'll put in the Bowflex and stationary bike.

Welcome back!

Did some small bit of kindness for a stranger today, and she really wanted to god-bless-me to death. I was polite to her despite my desire to tell her that god doesn't believe in me, but I know how it would go over if someone was nice to me and I said, "There's no god, so thank you for being kind."

Having a pretty relaxing day here, too. Mom is going off to a bridal shower for a relative. I can't think of anything less fun than spending two hours in a room full of evangelical women talking about how great so-called "traditional" marriage is. Whenever someone tells me they believe in traditional marriage, I ask them how many goats they paid for their spouse, and that's just not the way to have a happy family gathering. emoticon

Current food plan is working really well. Doing pretty well at avoiding too much religion on SP, but it can get wearying sometimes. How's everyone else doing?

Happy New Year all!!!

I managed to drop 40 pounds in 2017 and hope to lose another 25-35 pounds in 2018 to get to my goal.

I'm suffering from osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my right knee, which has made even basic activities somewhat difficult and painful, but I'm making some progress there with PT and other treatments. It's odd how the doctors are very proud of me for the weight I'm losing and I know that it has many health benefits, but the arthritis wasn't aggravated until I lost weight! lol.

What are your goals for 2018?

Two close friends have died this past week, and I have a renewed sense of how important living is.

We are doing our Thanksgiving Dec 9 for the family and friends. I'm looking forward to special treats that day and not beating myself up for eating them. I also fully expect to overeat that day. LOL

Hugs to everyone

Welcome Tukarama.

I just returned from my trip. Went through a pile of mail!

All I can say is that sometimes staying around a weight point is a feat, in and of itself!
