I hang out on the support group for just women/7 day motivational thread. We start a new week, but anyone can join any time.
We don't compete against each other--just set our own goals and try our best to report in daily. Lot of good encouragement and support, lot of discussions, lot of fun.
Any of you grandmas or others reading this are quite welcome to join us.
Good to be back and to see the motivational thread, too. I think I'll need that. I'm a grandmother of 10—mother of 4;
5'5" at 180 trying to lose 50 pounds total, with some short term goals along the way.
I joined this site last year at 189.4 Had a few setbacks during the year that kept me off the site—including a stolen computer— Managed to keep off almost ten pounds so I'm happy for that, although a bit disappointed that the weight loss is moving so slowly. Back on track, now.
Good to be among the motivated.
