For those of you who don't know me, I am not new to the group. I joined in 2011 and since March have been struggling to stay on track.
Long story short, as I professed I would never do, I had fallen to emotional eating and totally gave up on healthful eating and weight loss. I have regained almost all the weight I lost over the years. Mike reached out to me and found exactly the right words to encourage me to come back.
My goals this week are simple:
--take my daily supplements to help keep blood cholesterol normal
Welcome back Mern!!
Like Mern I have been MIA for a while too. I think it's because in the summertime I don't have Dr appointments so it's easier for me to become lax. I'm maintaining the same weight but I really need to get back to eating more fruits and veggies.
Exercise has consisted of yardwork and cleaning.
I have to go to my family Dr so he can check my A1C. Not looking forward to that.
Goals will be simple
1. Keep to carb limit
2. 4 servings fruits/veggies
3. 6 glasses of water
4. Exercise 30 min 3x
I was going to go eat and exercise but then after editing my goals saw your post.
Welcome back to you, too! It is easy to become lax when we don't have doctor appointments staring us in the face. I always seem to get back on the wagon before my A1C in time to get my blood sugar back down to normal. Kinda juvenile, but I have to admit it.
Thanks for posting your goals. I am a veggie lover but haven't been eating enough veggies lately. I'll add that to my goals.

I lost a pound last week so that makes it 4 pounds for June, not the 6 that I was planning on but I will do better in July. With out the wonderful people on this board encouraging me I wouldn't have made it this far. Thank you for your kind words.
