Hi Everyone

Thanks Mern for holding down the ship by yourself pretty much all weekend.

I had my first green smoothie today. It was easy to log the ingredients.

I also went snow shoeing, which has become a Sunday routine. 60 minutes. As timed by my nieghbour I go with who uses a timer and keeps us on track.

Glad to see you getting back on Cassie. I have continued to have no problem logging in. Don't know why.

Mern, I have been reading and enjoying your posts even though I had nothing to say today. And I agree. Big hugs to anybody struggling right now.

Caty I think you came to the right place to get support for your journey.

Joanna. I am very envious of your progress running and it is motivating me. I run very slow and so I need to speed up. Went to a Zombie Run back in November, that was all sprinting. It was really fun. 5 k being chased by zombies. There is a monthly "Blood Monitor" fundraising 5 k. I went to the first one but have not gone back. I need to go. Thank you.

I'm sorry. I'll try to be more supportive next week.

Finished Sunday just shy of 1500 calories. Tomorrow will be weigh in day. My goals this week are to stay within 1500 each day, drink 64 ozs water, and exercise daily.

Mern, I noticed your weight loss! Great job! I have 6 siblings (2 brothers and 4 sisters). Only the 2 brothers have grandkids. My older brother has 9 grandkids, but they all live in Florida. My younger brother, who lives in the Chicago area near me has 2 little boys, about the same ages as my granddaughters. It's fun to compare the differences between the boys and girls.

Good luck everyone and have a great week!
