So as we all go down this road known as obesity together, to those of you who go to the gym like I do. My question is this. When you get in a rut (we all get there) what do you do to motivate yourself to get out of the rut?
Hi! I have a question? Are there any members on here who really write and respond on here! I know sometimes we may drop off for some reason but it would be nice to state that! When looking for friends, some haven’t been on here all the way back to 2017. This should be set out to automatically block those who don’t respond within so many days. When they chose to come back, administrators would have to approve! It would be nice if the hobbies separated the members or something that would stand out… read more
We all need encouragement! Some of us are trying to check in with each other at least on Sundays...Please feel free to join us! How it works: On the "How was your day?" section--Write the caption: "Check In Sunday". Then we write how our week went, what our goals are for the following week, how we are feeling etc. Hope to see you there!🌸
I checked Taffy. I love checking in. I’m 157 today. How are you doing Taffy?
I have not been on this site for a while, but have missed it. My mom was sick, and passed away in January of this year. I am not good AT ALL at loving myself.

I want to succeed so badly, because my pain level is so high, it"s hard to walk due to back pain and foot problems , all I do is cry wanting to help myself but I never suceed.
I was doing so well with my weight loss. Actually loss 40+ pounds with nothing but the gym and food regulation. Then a series of events took place that made it impossible to continue my three day a week routine. Yes my family makes sure that I have a car available on Tuesdays and Thursdays but what they don't understand is that because those are the only days I have the car, all of my appointments etc must be scheduled on those days so I can't get back to my class. I am so very discouraged. It… read more
