How i have missed you all!!
I was on vaction to see the inlaws. They said that they had internet (which they did) but it was dial up. I did not even know that was still around. Needless to say, it was to slow to get on to webmd. And when i was able to get on webmd, they site would crash before i could even get to the discussions.

I am glad that i am back but sorry that i missed the first portion on the challange =(

I was worried that when i got back i had gained all of those 5 pounds back, but thank goodness, i just stayed that same weight! Still at 195. The one bad thing about the inlaw is that she really knows how to cook and it is hard for me to say when, i swear i over ate every night i was out there

But now i am back and ready to continue this journey!

Mardee! I was wondering where you went! I noticed that you said that you were from Utah in one of your earlier posts. I'm in Provo right now

Yes Ma'am. I live in Salt Lake City less than an hour from Provo.

Do you live in Provo or are you just visiting?

Welcome back Mardee. Glad you had a good time. Nice that the food is good. Terrible about the internet.
You said "dial up" and I blurted out a laugh... and immediatly thought of telegraph lines stretching to the MOON
I mean that... that's the picture that popped into my head, for real.

Funny , but I can still remember waiting and waiting and WAITING while that stupid dial tone continued to try to connect on our first computer....... years ago...

I think they even have high speed in the gobi desert now. How does anyone survive with dial up ?

Sorry you missed the start of C3. We'll be doing another in a couple of weeks though so just stick tight and hang loose till then. You are on my watch list for when the new one begins.

Baby steps, to a healthy lifestyle change. When you change your thoughts you will then change your weight. Getting healthy is about progress, not perfection.

I do remember dial up as well. That noise when you would try and use the phone when someone was already on the internet was just aweful!! Hahaha.
I also remember when we first got internet..... Wow how technology has changed. And even with cell phones! It is crazy to think that you can get on the internet with those....

When C4 start, you bet i will be there!!

That would be nice to have a walking buddy, but an hour away for that is just to far. Hahaha

But lunch one day might be nice...

Eagle mountain is a wonderful place to live. I have an aunt that lives there and she loves it. Honestly, i love Utah. It would kill me to move away. The only thing that i would change is the winters.... I cant stand the snow. Haha
