We have several members who are shedding those extra pounds that come with middle age and having babies. Our newest member to join this thread is CharlieD. And we all give a lot of support to anyone who is fighting the battle of the bulge. Losing weight is a hard job. It went on so easily. And you don't even notice it happening. Not until your doctor tells you that you have some serious health problems that are caused by all that weight you are carrying around. Keep coming back and let us know how you are doing. Losing those thirteen pounds were no easy feat. It takes hard work to lose weight. Good luck.

I didn't set out to lose weight, I set out to change my eating habits and maybe gain some energy and perhaps shed a few pounds. It has been over a year. The "new" eating habits are firmly in place and, golly gee, I lost weight, and have more energy.

Just getting back from a long weekend of mom's homemade baked goodies, cold beer & fair food, I ate it all in moderation, but I ate it all. Tomorrow is back to the gym for me. I did get 2 hours on a sit down elliptical type exercise machine while there. Hope I at least maintained.

I celebrated my 15 pound weight loss with a dish of vanilla ice cream. Back to it tomorrow or Friday...
