Of course not. But if our members repeatedly make a request of other members, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect people to respect the wishes of the community. Is that really too much to ask? Or is it more important to continue to argue?

I know most of us are foodies and love to cook but those calories certainly add up in our yummy recipes! Such a bummer because I do love those rich creamy sauces and ravioli's!!

I thought we could have a thread to support each other in our quest for fitting better into our clothes. I've got a few more pounds to lose and only 9 more weeks until I move home! My best friend is getting married and I have a dress I need to fit into by then!

One thing that really helps me is drinking 2+ liters of water per day. Oh and not drinking alcohol, which is kinda hard since I love my mojito's and Rioja! I'm not a huge drinker but I find the nights I drink I end up over-eating.

Recently I finally gave up sugar in my coffee (I used to put 1 tablespoon of sugar in one cup!!) and replaced it with Stevia. I still have my sweet tooth, but I'm so proud of myself for giving it up in my daily coffee!

Lets share our tips on healthy cooking etc!! What are some things that have helped you lose weight?

It IS progress! Good for you!! I'm taking a break of doing anything today

Thanks for sharing, that is nice.

I got to the pool today, 10 mn late, for deep water aerobics class, then to aqua chi class after that.

I ate ice cream and candy last night. I feel as if I committed murder.

RB, are you saying you feel bad about eating them because of your diet? We all slip and I have learned to take them for what they are worth and move on. I know I will be having ice cream tomorrow because my 9 year-old rent-a-kid is coming over and we have had a small dish each, every time she has come while on break. Tomorrow is our last day together to it will be ice cream and strawberries! After that I will go back to being strict.

SB, glad you made it to the pool. I am not sure if I will make it tomorrow or not. I find that doing that and having the young girl over in one day is really hard on me. We will be doing enough physical things in the day that I should be fine.

The daughter had an outing w friends. So, I got some extra free time in the gym tonight. I got 65 mn on the elliptical machine, 8 different weight machines in 20 mn then another 30 mn on the bike, tired but feeling great after a long, hot shower.

This thread is titled "Who's Trying to Lose Weight".
Can we really expect this thread to not veer into a diet discussion at some point?
So we are getting exactly what this thread was designed for. We don't need a new one.
In fact, they could merge both threads with few people even noticing.
This still remains an encouragement thread, not a thread for you to tell people that the only thing that works is what you do. Sure talk about your diet, but don't tell others they are stupid for NOT doing what you say.
