As we enter into the holiday time, I guess I really need to pay attention to my weight goals.

As such, I am going to aim for a weight loss of about 5 lbs per month. I was weighing in yesterday at 181.4 so by the end of the month I am hoping to be down to 176 or less.

With the new house, I am hosting Thanksgiving with my family and it should include a lot of goodies...I am thinking I need to find some healthier alternatives. It seems everyone is dealing with health issues these days. It should be interesting....

Oh and btw...I cant say that I like the new boards... :smileysad:

5 pounds a month sounds like a realistic goal to me!

There is also a post at the top where you can give your opinion to iVillage about the boards. At least I think it is on this board. One problem with the new boards for me is that I have 2 boards and some announcements need posted twice and there is a feature which prevents spamming.....but it also prevents me from posting the same thing on 2 boards within a substantial amount of seconds!

Thanks Sue!! I will continue to play around with the new features. However a demo of the new boards would be nice. This would allow the user to choose to view the demo and get a better understanding of how to manuever through the new layout. Heck I cant even find my profile with all my favorite boards that I had logged previously. *sigh*

But, not all the changes are negative..in fact I think most of the changes are great, just need time to get used to the things I am not thrilled with (like the new layout). In my previous thread of random updates the font on most of the page was in a type of script that was next to impossible to read...so I scrapped that thread and started the new one. I hope that fixed that problem.

I will also read through th FAQs and see what more I can see..unfortunately the boards are still painfully slow to load....

I just wish that I had more time to play with the new features.

Hi Gypsy!!!!

Yes I think for me I need the accountability of a support group.....So sorry to hear that you gained back some weight. You did an awesome job in your journey so I am certain that you will get back to your weight loss goal quickly!

After having lost the 40+ lbs and buying all new *skinny* clothes....I had to go shopping and by new clothes that I can actually fit into. It was tough buying those larger sizes...but it is what it is and I need to just get back on track.

DH set up the gym down in the basement and he says we will both work together in order to get healthy. So it should be good to get the weights and maybe an evening walk or a lunchtime walk.

This next week, I will be driving into the office for meetings with managers in town for the week. It is going to be a busy week and several nights out with the team. I will do my best to keep the meals under control...and with commuting as far as I will be, I will not have any cocktails with all the high calorie fruit juices. LOL

I am hoping to get back to where I need to be sooner rather than later...with the help and support of this board I am sure I can do it over time.

((((( HUGS ))))

Good Luck with your goal! I'd be happy just not to gain during the holidays (non-pg of course,lol) :)

Let us know if you come across any yummy-sounding recipes!
