Hi Nancy, yes sometimes. It's not a real religious thing, if someone starts a thread, like Kali has for the past couple of months we all chime in. Here's our latest one's thread...

Nancy, Kim referred you to the October Goal discussion. There probably will be one for November. I think it really helps to make short term goals. These really do help us to reach our long term ones that seem so far away.

Good to see you!

Fynness responded:
For now, at least for me, just sticking to my exercise and walks and making it a routine I can do everyday, this is enough for me. My thoughts aren't toward weight loss at this time but learning healthier habits and incorporating them into my daily activities so they become habit. THEN... I'll start looking at weight loss, I figure it will happen with these changes I am making (which it already has) so I'm not going to torture myself by weighing in and checking. I did do a start measurement and will do near the end measurement. That's about it though.

Lorrie, I think you have a very wise approach to take it step by step like that. Once your habits are better, other good things will follow almost automatically, I think.

My challenge at this stage is just to survive and stay sane, but like you, also to just focus on healthy habits. I am already sleeping more, which I am proud of. My eating is fairly healthy, but I still need to cut down on the sweet things (that I must not turn to now in my time of stress).

We have to do this OUR way, what makes sense in OUR lives.
