following: Minimizeme's own diet
performance: losing 0.7 lb a week

I've never had weight issues until menopause, and now it's so difficult to fight off a pound. So, I am here to track food and activity and see what others are doing. I live in a rainy state (Oregon) so I exercise indoors much of the time (when I do exercise). My goal is to adopt new habits that are as automatic as breathing.

Hello from wales
I'm so very sick of being fat and feeling bad about myself. It's way past time to release this burden and feel good again which won't happen if I keep giving up. I'm so predictable. I do great for a month or two, then back to not counting calories and no exercise. Every one of us can get this done, we just have to really, really care about ourselves enough to do it. So, as I watch all of you meet your goals, as I know you will, hopefully I'll come along and do the same.

My husband just had a sigmoid colon resection because a pocket became infected. He has received conflicting opinions on whether he can eat seeds & nuts, but his surgeon told him to avoid most of them including tomato seeds and to take fiber daily. He said if everyone would do that, he wouldn't be doing dozens of these surgeries every week. I would think we should be able to eat enough fiber to do the same, but once the pockets are present, you have to be careful because you don't want something nesting in one and becoming inflamed.

Need some buddies
Absolutely...good luck! I just posted today's goals over on your group forum. It's too big to look at for more than a day at a time without getting side tracked, so I need to do that everyday, and just maybe I'll be too embarrassed to tell you girls that I got sloppy and didn't do any of it. I loved your intro for the group by the way.
