  1. Congrats to you! Good to see you are happy!
  2. LadyFl

    My job...

    You will find something! Good luck to you. I changed jobs/states last year. This year just changed positions. Change is often a good thing. Glad you are taking time to regroup.
  3. Pretty impressive! Great job!
  4. I would tell her "make a point to stay fit/active and do not look for approval from anyone but yourself." Oh yeah, "denial is deadly."
  5. This will be the best time to get your greatest results (first 18 months). Follow the eating plan prescribed by your doctor. Read about your new lifestyle. Know that is a "tool." Congrats!
  6. You have done a wonderful job Tom! Congrats!
  7. Kim, praying for you and your family. Make sure you take care of yourself.
  8. Working out is helping me feel less vulnerable. Debbi this is a journey. You will get through this just keep pushing forward. This gift "our tool" is for a lifetime. We get to use it or abuse it. Like you, I am using this tool to improve my health. We can do this!
  9. Yeah, my husband can now "pick me up" too! For me, I am still getting use this ability. My husband is 6'5" and I am 5"6'. This is the first time in 17 years anyone could easily lift me. Wow! Happy Anniversary!
  10. For me the last 2.6 years has been a mind changer. Yes, I have lost weight physically. The most important thing that I gained is "joy." I have returned from the dead. I am laughing everyday. That is my NSV. Now, time to go an workout!
  11. Congrats on your progress. Great job!
  12. Getting closer to my goal date (07-17-17). This week included an injury to my foot. However, I am on my to the gym in a few. No new weight loss. I am making healthy choices. Pushing forward with every step.
  13. I been with the same man for 17 years. Anyone who been with anybody long-term understands healthy relationships evolve. My husband and I have more converstations about exercise, food choices and our children's health. We sometimes compete. We argue when I don't eat. Exercising is an important part of our partnership. Being we are both sleeved, after two years, it has giving us a special kind of bond. The hardest part? Well because of our competitive nature's sometimes intentionally and/or unintentionally sabotaging eachother. We need to work on that issue! However, due to our sleeves we are both around to laugh about it.
