SB--keep going! I have those "lines" one gets with abs just from doing weights and using my "stretchy band" at home during TV commercials. Mind you, my body should have muscle memory from competing professionally as an x-c skier and I did a lot of competitive swimming when I was young. I also used to run 10-12 km a day. So the muscles come back.But, the little bit of exercise I do each day has made a difference. The DH finally noticed I've lost weight--didn't call me "slim," but he did finally comment--"you've lost weight." He's probably worried that I'll be spending $ on clothes...

I was a bit miffed that n/one had noticed...however, I overheard a co-worker describe me as the "slim, tall, blonde--can't remember her name" the other day. I can't remember the last time someone described me as slim and tall (blonde, I get that all the time). I'm the shortest person in my family and extended family---and I'm 5'6"! And, I'm only blonde during the summer months when I'm working outside in the garden. I have to admit, I was really tickled to be described as "tall and slim!!! at my age!!! Are you talking about ME? Tall AND SLIM--whooo-hoo!
Good for you!! I get called the "short little blonde." No one will ever describe me as tall lol

First all, Welcome!

We presently have a member Simon Baker (SB) who was told by her doctor in no uncertain terms, to lose weight. And we have been following her progress. All of us are so proud of her. Every so often her wagon tilts a little bit, but no major fall offs. And we will gladly give you all the support you may or may not need. Losing weight can often be a daunting task. It is so easy to get discouraged. But we will all be here to keep you going. There are a number of us who are Type 2 (T2) diabetics. I have noticed that folks who try to go by the diet of a T2 usually lose weight. Simply by eating the right foods and in small amounts. SB is finding that she is eating a lot less than she used to. She feels fuller with less food. The diet for a T2 will certainly not hurt you. As you may well know, sugar is the bain of the American diet.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. There is nothing we love better than helping someone.

I haven't posted much here, but since this time last year, I've gone from 265 lbs. to 237 lbs., and still losing. My goal is 155 lbs. I believe I have a way to go yet. Portion control, a very good protien drink that is very low carb (good for us diabetics) and more movement have been the key so far. I had a plateau at 240 lbs. for several weeks, but burst through that over the Thanksgiving Holydays, where I lost 5 lbs. And i ate some of everything served, just small portions, which I found still satisfied.

I'm doing the happy dance. Aren't you glad we don't have visuals?

Great goinig CLN. Those plateaus can be a killer. So discouraging. You just have to know to expect them. Keep up the good work and do pop in more often letting us know how you are doing. Even if it is just a little tilt of the wagon every so often. I am only too happy to pass on any encouragement needed. You deserve it. And one for you!

That 5 pounds was from crawling around on the floor with those Gorgeous Granddaughters of yours, that and getting off the floor!

Seriously, Good Job! Looks like you are doing something right in your diet. Very proud of you! Happy Dance and you should be glad there's no visual...

there might be no visual, but I can feel the floor shake.

The problem is getting the Happy Dance started on the inside soon enough it makes it to the outside so you CAN feel the floor shake...
