We are soooooo glad to have you join our family. As you have noticed, we are a bunch of great people all battling the same issue - STUPID WEIGHT!! ARG!!!!

I bet you find the program absolutely amazing. Not only are you not hungry, you are getting healthy and the pounds literally fall off! I've been on this program since January 12th and have never been sick of the food and 5 pounds from my goal - yippee!! If I can do it, you can!

Good luck in your journey....... and by the way - love your sense of humor :)

Restarted 9/29/08
1st month = 16.7 lbs
2nd month = 9.5 lbs
3rd month = 10.8 lbs
4th month = .4 lb /

Thanks for remembering me and now I feel like one of the family! It's amazing what the internet can do :puter: !

Here's to a good night's sleep in front of the blasting-cool-air fan!

Marie-Roasting-in-Seattle where precious few of us have air-con, and it's been like 90 degrees, and we love it, but not in the house where my kids walk by me peeling off their clothes and saying "I can't breathe! I need water!" :nutz: :goofy:

A big WELCOME to you, Sandy! You sound like a'll be fun getting to know ya! :buddies:

I'll TAKE your 45 and raise you four more.....I'm hanging on to 49 for dear life and dreading the big 5-O next January. :shock: <huge sigh!> It all depends on where you're standing, I guess. At 60, I'll wish I was 50...and so on....! :mrgreen:

Joy :heart:

Welcome Sandy! :) hehehe...I'm giggling because I made your list. :) I have to tell you from over 6 yrs of being on message boards, I'm usually the forgotten one. :) So seeing me in your list made my day.

I think it's going to be great having you around here. It's amazing that a little thing called fat can bring so many different people together for a common goal.

Welcome Sandy and boy I hear ya' on the heat. I don't know how you could bear it without the AC. I'd go to a hotel too probably. It's still going to be 106 today!! Anyway it's good to have yet another NorCal babe on the forum.


p.s. I won't hold it against you that you left me off your list. :?
