Good reports Donna, Caty and Mern!
Thanks for the update on the log in issues Cassie. Frustrating but at least we are living with it.

Hi, Jenn! Thanks for your encouragement. I feel like a ping pong ball bouncing around here--was told at one point the last post of this thread was 7:28PM today and it's not even 4PM here. But I'll try to be patient--at least I've gotten on to log my reports and checked in a couple times.

Welcome scornish. From your height and weight info, looks like you may just need to exercise more. That get harder at our age. And perhaps try switching to water after a few glasses of wine, or alternate wine, water, wine. It will help with the dehydration alcohol can cause.

I have not really had any log in issues. Not sure why that is. I see it's been a problem for some.

I have been too busy to post much but I have been reading the posts some and it motivates me.

I am motoring along with my goals- nothing really to report. Goals are the same and going fine. My exercise has been regular if not very intense.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Welcome socornish!

Im determined not give up or give in.I know it's up to me to get back on the track I was on. I know what works for me, running, cardio classes and eliminating processed carbs, increasing fruits, veggies and protein and finding an exercise partner.
