I'm still here. I'm hoping once I get recovered that I can really kick exercise and the weight loss into high gear!

Shatema, hope you get some good rest and that you feel better soon!

I would really like for us to start sharing any snack tips, recipes or exercise ideas that we have. I'm in a rut, and I've been finding some good recipes on Pinterest that I'm wanting to try.

My goal right now is to look good for our annual Christmas card picture. I don't mean that I have to be at goal weight or anything, but I just want to be happy with it instead of embarrassed that I've gained some weight back.

I think I need this group. My name is Kay but most people around sb.com know me as Mother Goose - Kay is fine. I'm years old and married to my second wonderful guy. I was widowed after having many great and fun years. A few years later my present dh came along and shook the ground around me. He was also widowed and we are able to discuss our past loves with no threats.

I am a diabetic of 25 years and have a few health problems that prevent excessive exercise. I am starting on a mild cardiovascular exercise program to help keep my blood sugar on track and maybe shed a few pounds.

L live and love scrapbooking and other paper arts. I am presently working on some seat cushions for my front porch rocking chairs and just finished covering seats for back deck chairs. With that and taking care of a few flowers and tomatoes and long car drives, we stay pretty busy. We are both retired and just learning how to live after working all our lives.

I need to drop about 30 lbs, but more important, I need to get my body regulated and need some coaches (all of you) to help me.

They are horrible for us all. It is 94 but feels like 100 outside. So when you walk out of the air conditioning it feels like you are walking into a dense, air-filled oven.

Welcome back Michelle and Judy and welcome Kay!
Judy, I am hoping to get a bit of downtime soon and start working on all my healthy recipes again. I want to create a healthy recipe blog and pin the recipes too. I will definitely post them as I blog them.

So I started a new medication today that has side effects when eaten with simple carbohydrates. So, like an idiot I took all the kids (my 2 and the 2 that I babysit) to Pizzeria Uno for a last day of school celebration lunch. I ordered a chopped power salad which has Chicken breast, spinach, plum tomatoes, carrots, feta, red grapes, goji berries, raisins, soy nuts, almonds, pepitas & sweetened dried cranberries and I ordered balsamic dressing on the side. Of course it came with a bread stick and, of course, I ate it. Well, now I remember what the side effects can do. I am dying with tummy issues!!
