Hi,

I'm new to this board. A person on another board pointed me in this direction. I really like what I see so far. It's going to take a bit for me to get used to this type of forum. Hope to make new friends here that are also working towards the same goals I am. :)

WooHoo! During this past month I have had severe back pain and finally the pain is subsiding. I did re-gain some lost weight, but not as much as I thought. I am finally able to work towards my weight loss goals again.

WooHoo or BooHoo, I'm not sure which. WooHoo because I didn't gain, BooHoo because I didn't lose either. I weight from Friday to Friday. Maybe, hopefully, when I weight on Monday, there will be at least a 1 pound difference.

I went to a Spark gathering this weekend. It was an inspiration to meet real people who've shed many pounds and have gotten themselves into a better and much healthier lifestyle. It truly motivates you to be just like them. I'm in...slowly and surely.

I want to thank everyone who kept the group going. I needed it to draw me back and to get started again.

Life has thrown me a curve ball. It took me this long to come back with a 5 pound weight gain in tow. I have begun again. I hope to lose at least 25 pounds this year.

Thank you all for your support.

BOO HOO...

I have had a horrible month. Sorry I was unable to post and keep up with this team. Hopefully everyone remained on track even though I had a downslide.

First I got really sick. Then when I was feeling better, I had to compensate for the time I was off and overworked. I work in a school and we decided to close 2 elementary schools at the end of the year. Then to top the bad times, my best friends Son is going to be a daddy. The mom-to-be's brother was murdered yesterday. URRRGGGGG!!!!

Things have to get better.

Boo hoo this month. I am ready to move onto February! January's bleak economy and terrible weather really set me back. February is a new month with new beginnings.

Here's to woo hoo in the next 30 days.

Thanks for the encouragement on LESS SALT. I am a salt lover, too. I had the same experience with family who have diabetes -- hence, I cut out most sugars and started losing weight.

It is really eye-opening when you see the ones you love suffer because of their lifestyles/health issues.

Good job on losing 2 pounds on vacation!

I just got back from vacation and lost 2 pounds. The family I went with is addicted to salt. I see their health problems and it makes it easier to say NO!

You are not alone MOMTROY! I have a problem with salt too! And trying very hard to cut back on it! Maybe we should start a salt-free day challenge or a reduced salt intake challenge, something like that!?!

I have a great problem with salt. I am adicted. I have been reading a book called the Vitamin D Cure. It is written by a doctor that believes that everyone must have more vitamin D with Magnesium added to their diet. The more salt the more vitamin D is needed.

I cannot handle 6000 mg of D. So, I have to cut the salt.

I appreciate the encouragement -- I know the best way to have results is.... hmmm... what is that called? Oh yea! Self discipline! hahaha! :} I guess if I had that to start with, we wouldn't be chatting.

Well IMANI4000, my advise to you is to cut back on the salty popcorn consumption.I know it's difficult but you could try having it on a particular day of the week and in a specific amount! And increase your water intake too. Anytime you are about to eat more than you should, think about the extra exercise you would have to do to burn the extra calories. And in the case of water retention, think about how much more results you can get if you would just cut back on the salt! Don't give up, I know you can do it!

Cheers

I have a really difficult time with water retention -- & I LOVE popcorn with lots of salt. I think the only thing that helps (besides cutting back on salt) is to drink more water to flush it out of my system. Any other thoughts on this issue? I'm really having to deal with this alot.

i too crave salt. I have found that the less salt I have the less I crave it. But it takes some time for the cravings to go away.

I found that eating a little of the salty item will help with the majority of the cravings. Perhaps that will help with you.

Getting on the scale was really depressing this morning. Yeah, yeah, I know, beef jerky is BAD for me, my sodium intake is too high as it is and beef jerky sure doesn't help but I do love the stuff. And I really wasn't all that bad over the weekend. Except for the jerky. But I had enough of it that I'm retaining fluid (my rings are tight) and my weight is up 3 lbs since Friday.
