Anything new happening in NJ?

So we discovered that our local public golf course has a restaurant/bar with a great terrace overlooking the greens, so we've gone there a couple of times for a drink and a bite so we can feel like we're in a country club. emoticon Yeah, we're just too cool...

Hi, to all the Jersey-ites! Yeah, I've been on and off sick for 2 months now, myself. I was pretty healthy for a couple of years so it's been annoying that I now keep getting these colds/viruses/sinus infections, etc. I've had a terrible sore throat for nearly 2 weeks so I finally went to the doctor yesterday and while he doesn't think I have strep, I do have something going on with my tonsils & sinuses so he sent me home w/4 different meds! I tell you, I am just feeling run down...

Hope the rest of you are feeling better!

Good Afternoon, EVERYONE from NJ!!! Just wanted to check in and say emoticon !!!

Hope you all 'weathered the storm' relatively well. I stayed home from work yesterday - not really because of the snow, but because I'm sick! My boss and another co-worker were sick (seems like they were passing it back and forth for a month), then hubby came down with something last week ~ I was BOUND to get it.

I'm at work today - I probably shouldn't be :-(

Hope you are all having a GREAT day!

BTW - AGAPEJOY ... Jersey Girl through and through!

HAHA - I just looked at the last time I posted (2/1/19) - thought I was coming down with something then, too. Didn't get a cold/anything that time, but sure got it this time!!! emoticon

Welp, I took off Monday and am still a bit sick. I am just looking forward to going home and laying on the couch in, oh, about 9 hours.

It's good to have a goal! emoticon

I didn't get a chance to enjoy yesterday's 65 degree weather - maybe we'll get another warm day before the spring...

I'm with you! And I'm so glad it's Friday. I'm coming down with something and I debated whether to come into work today but I figured I could, so I should, right? And if I get worse over the weekend I can always take off on Monday...

Hope everyone has a great weeked! emoticon

I had high hopes for January; although I didn't do too badly, (not gaining) - my losses were not what I had hoped. Getting my mind wrapped around that and hoping to do better for February. As I said ~ there IS a positive, at least I didn't gain! :-)

Not so great - I've been maintaining my weight for nearly a year and although I count calories every day, I don't keep IN my calorie range most days! ARRRrrrggghhh!! I was so good the first year I did this, but now as I finish up my 2nd year with the 5:2 fasting program, I found it hard to be as restrictive as I was my first year. So after my 60 pound weight loss in my first year (yay!) I've lost a total of 4 pounds in my 2nd year (awwww). But it's a victory for me to maintain my weight, so I'm still taking that as a win.

Year 3 officially starts February 20, and my goal is to get this last 35 pounds off in the coming year.

Hi Everyone - As January is winding down, how did everyone do this first month of the year?

Making your goals and keeping your resolutions?

I spent most of the month plateauing and it really messed with my head. I am starting to get back on track now. :)

Good Morning! I 'fly by' often but don't 'check in' like I should. Saw the 2019 Team Chat thread and decided to say hello to all of my 'Fellow Jerseyans' and wish all of you a safe, happy, and HEALTHY New Year!

BTW - you might want to move this Chat to the 1st 'Sticky' Topic so that everyone will be able to get to it easily!

I figured I would start a new chat for the new year just in case anyone wants to stop by and say hello!

I saw in the news today that the Tappen Zee Bridge is being demolished by explosives this Saturday and they were telling the best places to watch it go down. I am trying to convince my husband we should go to Piermont to watch it but he's all for watching it online! I'm sure the traffic will be a bear since they have to close the new span for about an hour while it happens.

The end of an era...
