That is just wonderful. I have been blaming Limictal but see you are taking more than me. No matter if I ate cake, candy, every kind of sweet known to man I could put on 100 pounds in about 6 months. I rarely eat sweets, I do eat a well balanced diet and the weight stays the same.

I am just thrilled for you my dear.Smile

The very best thing that will cause weight loss is plain old walking. I lost 100 pounds by eating right and the walking.

Congrats tinlizzy & UW!

auntie60 I love to walk, especially in beautiful surroundings and pleasant weather. It's been insanely hot during the days here for a while but evening walks are nice too Smile

It's been too hot to walk here as well- you chew the air in Florida some days.

...which really isn't an excuse, I've got a treadmill parked RIGHT in front of my tv.

Problem is I love food. I love to make it, I love to taste it, I love to share it with people. Little makes me happier than cooking a meal my whole family will enjoy.

We don't even eat badly; it's a portion issue.

Well and I'm essentially a lump.

Buuuut I think it'd be fun (possibly motivating) to have some folks to check in with every couple of weeks.

Maybe I'll have something good to report too soon ;D

Good going to those of you that lost though!

Only 5lbs more to reach 1st weight loss goal. At that point I will have lost 28lbs. I am really in the groove and so excited.

I lost 4 pounds. I have a long way to go but it is a start. The thyroid medication is working! I hope it continues...

Andromelo, I understand very well how hard it is to get motivated to walk on a treadmill. I have neglected mine until quite recently (i.e. this week, she said with a red face...). I know I need to walk to help with weight loss as well as overall health. So, I have begun again with a walking buddy from here. We live in different time zones, but we walk for 30 minutes at the same time. I find that motivating and makes us both accountable. Please do check in and let us know how you are doing. We're here to support each other.

Tinlizzy, that's great!! I will be waiting to hear when you've hit your goal!

IDNK, 4 lbs is a great beginning to weight loss efforts. I hope you will be a regular here and help support us as we help support you.
