    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    October results/November Goals
    irisheyes213 posted:
    I don't know what happened to October or my goals. I didn't meet any of them as I just lost momentum. I was exhausted before we left for my Grandmother's funeral and I have been exhausted since we came back. I did take my vitamins some days and I did send a good amount of paperwork to the office in the middle of the month. I stopped logging my freggies and my vitamins but I am going to be logging all my food today.

    For November I am going to:

    Keep working on my virtual walk miles by walking everyday even if only 5-10min
    Eat at home at least 18 meals per week
    Clear out the backlog of paperwork once and for all
    Take a full set of measurements before the month is over
    Never giving up and pushing forward will unlock all the potential we are capable of. ~Christy Borgeld

    Deb, thanks for sharing your goals and helping remind us about our own. It looks like you've chosen some challenging ones

    Really start working on my Gazelle now that the cold and rain are making outside exercise more difficult.
    Continue participation in activity challenge through November 18th (40 days total, started in October).
    Remember water is my friend, even in the fall/winter when it's cooler.

    Thanks for the cornucopias!

    Who is next?

    Pounds off since December 2009= 35lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.

    Hi Deb,

    This site and my iPad rarely get along these days and this is my primary access to the site. I cannot find my October goals; it must have been about the book beta activities....

    Finish beta

    Set up post beta plan

    Check in on my Webmd family more often.

    irisheyes213 replied to Rgulen's response:
    Hoping they can fix that issue soon.
    I haven't tried accessing the site from my new phone yet.

    Hang in there and check in when you can!
    PS What is the beta book? I don't remember if you talked about it previously.
