Hello team It seems that we are all doing well. I am also glad the trees were saved. That is so important because the trees are not only beautiful, but it gives us many benefits. Our weekend is winding down, and I hope everyone had a pretty good weekend. Thanks to my grandson, I was a little busy, but being busy is good for me, because it helps me to stick to emoticon my food plan.

Good Morning everyone. I have been in bed for four days. I am so exhausted and can't get motivated. I had a pulmonary function test that wore me out on Thursday. I hope I get something done today and start feeling better. I want to clean my house, but I just can't get motivated. Ugh.

Next Goal: To get into the 330's.

Hello everyone. I’ve been mia for a while. I’m back today and am trying to get on the right track. Unfortunately I’ve been doing pretty bad with my weight loss goal. I hope to improve this pronto. I’m excited about finally getting my life in order once again.

I have even the scored - lost 50 pounds for 4th time.

The rioting and looting is horrible and the attacks on police intolerable. I understand the protesting that is peaceful and want an end to police brutality for all. Statistics show there is no targeting of a minority - the brutality appears to be equal opportunity - at least over 99% police encounters are good ones.

Political correctness and obliteration of history is sad. Guess Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Mt Vernon and Cathedrals nationwide will need to come down because they do not live up to modern standards 200 years ago.

Progressives which want to erase from history those associated with abomination of slavery will probably be erased from history themselves by a future generation for something they see as an abomination (abortion maybe).

The protest that is happening around the country should not be called " riots." but should be referred to as exactly what it is: A protest of police brutality and unfair treatment of black and brown people in America. I admit that there was looting and destroying of property in the beginning, but anyone who has been watching these events can see that they are less common. I don't believe that this is the format to speak out politically, but since the issue was brought up, I feel obligated to respond. Hope everyone is having a good day.

Overeating during pandemic - I was beginning to snack too much and I stopped it cold - just by tracking everything I ate. Tracking is a means to keep us within calories. Now if your fridge is full of crap high caloric food - well that on you and you never intended to eat right. My ###### is like that - I am going to eat right and then goes to store and buys cookies, cakes and ice cream. No - they did not intend to eat right. Order / buy the food you should be eating. Track everything. No one is perfect - I started Sparkpeople a decade ago. I now weigh 11 pounds less than when I started. I have lost over 50 pounds 3 times and gained over 50 pounds 4 times. I am currently trying to even the score!

Hi Everyone!

These are tough times and dark times but it during these times we see American rise to the challenge. Washington has done such a great job with respirators we are sending excess to other countries. Pharmaceutical companies are shining with new treatments and research a dramatically high speeds. Manufacturers making medical supplies at incredible clip. Countless Americans making masks. America will rebound quicker and faster than many will expect bringing the rest of the Western World with them (because of trade, shared industries etc). America had an incredible and unbelievable economy when this all started and this economy is not dead - just on pause and life will return to normal. This virus has no cure and it will continue to be a serious threat to the elderly and those with medical conditions so we must all do our part to balance protecting the vulnerable while resuming our lives. The light is on the horizon.

WOW where is everyone? In these times where most of us are confined to our homes I really need your support and I imagine that there are a lot of us that could use encouragement.

I for one am really struggling with not overeating, I start of staying within my calorie range and then I hear the frig calling my name. LOL has that happened to anyone else?

' Eat less, Exercise more." Yes I agree with that!

The possibility of food being scarce makes me want to eat more! I keep telling myself that I'm NOT going to starve and to just relax! HaHa!

I lost 100 pounds twice and gained 100 pounds back twice. I hit 404 before retiring and moving to Florida - thank goodness I am large frame and 6'4" - but still got a whopping 52" waist.

My lifestyle changes resulted in slow and steady weight loss but in past couple of months I stepped things up - I walk 3 to 5 miles everyday. I have cut back on alcohol and fried foods. Everything is fried in Florida it seems. The changes I made are lifestyle changes related to being retired and in Florida. I am down 34 pounds after 1 year in Florida with last 20 pounds this year.


I do not know why it so hard to keep weight off or to eat a healthy diet. This virus thing is stress not needed. I hope all is well with everyone. Secret to weight loss - Eat less, Exercise more.

The path ahead is if filled with danger.

I remember when this team use to be chatty.

I like to walk. My favorite park to walk at is Lemon Bay Park in Englewood, Florida (OMG - people will be able to find you now - well - I blew that when I made my signin my name :). I walked over 3 miles this morning at the park.

My second favorite place is Maxine Barritt Park in Venice, Florida which has a 2/3 mile walking trail around a small "lake" along the ocean. Wife and I love this park. This evening we did a lap and half, watched sunset and half lap back to car.

Good Morning! What a great time to be alive in a nation at peace with a great economy! Went for my morning walk and according to my Fitbit Charge 3 I walked 3500 steps. A bit shy of my goal for the walk but that was probably due to the decision to skip part of the route because I didn't feel like doing it. The weather was great - blue skies and palm trees with temps in the upper 70s.

I am retired (retired at 54 - a bit of a funny story I'll share later). I am in good health - no issues other than my weight, vericose veins in lower legs so given my lifestyle - that amazing.

I have changed my lifestyle as planned when I moved to Florida. Now I drink more and eat more fried food. Was not what I was aiming for. I am a lot more active! I started last week cutting down significantly on fried foods and alcohol (We talking 2 beers a day and a pitcher or two at neighborhood bar with food once or twice a week - cutting down to occasional beer).

Have a great day!
