Our newest moderator, Elizabeth, will be joining me on this community for the next two weeks. Then on 9/24, it will be all hers.
I will miss you all so much and I might just need to get a member name to continue to get help reaching my goals. (See my post on the 100lb board about my weekend . UGH) I am giving over this community, but not on my desire to reach my goal of a healthier weight and healthy lifestyle to set a good example for my family.
In the meantime, Elizabeth, do introduce yourself and members--look for her to pipe in on your posts over the next couple weeks.View Thread
Ah, that happens. I like to think of that alone time as time I can get really nifty projects done. Clean out cupboards! Organize a drawer. Take a delightful bath and shave. Do something that keeps your hands busy. Hang a picture. Dust a room. See how much clean up you can do in 15 minutes. Not long-not to get rid of your down time altogether--just a small time out. Make a list of all those projects where you can do 10-15 minutes at a time...to short circuit the boredom=food connection.View Thread
It went on one pound at a time--it will go off the same way. Commit to a healthy lifestyle, to changing how you think about yourself and to coming here for support along the way. Eating won't fill the hole left by your husband. Taking charge of your life step by step can help--a lot.View Thread
