After being gone for a week I have decided it is time to come back to myLot. I am over the depressive period I went through from about Easter Sunday to the Wednesday after. Updates. My kittens are doing really well. They are 2.5 weeks old and all appear to be in good health including the mother. It is hard not to want to keep them all. Every night before bed I put them on my husbands side of the bed so he can have a visit. My daughter wants to keep one put that will be three cats. My Granddaughter started daycare this week. So I have more time to accomplish stuff. I joined a real gym. We have one that comes with the complex but some of the equipment is old and it can get crowded. I have to pay but there is people to help you all the time and they measure and give you fitness accessments every 6 weeks. As you know I go to bingo every Friday and Saturday night. The hall I go to is closing down next weekend. I am going to try and not go to bingo for awhile. I am saving for a trip and I spend too much money. I want to see if I am able to do it. Last I am hoping to join weight watchers. I am checking the times in my area. My husband gets home late as he works out of town. So I don't know if I can make it to weigh in, so it wouldn't be any use of joining otherwise. I am hoping my online friends can help keep me honest in my goals.

I got side tracked a bit coming back because my granddaughter was sick. It is hard to get on the computer and take care of her. I went to the gym when my husband was home in the evening. I have lost 5 pounds so far and if I can get a grip on my eating (which has improved) I know the weight loss will eventually become a 2 to 3 pound a week loss.

Nice to see you back Linda and to hear you are doing well. Good luck to your granddaughter when she starts nursery, it will definately give you more time to focus on yourself for a while, which we all need. I have just started going to a keep fit class, my first was last Wednesday. At first I didn't want to go, but I am so glad I did, it was brilliant and I felt so much better. I am sure once you go often enough the weight will fall off and you will feel alot better too. Maybe this way you will not have to join Weight Watchers. Its more money and in my opinion they never seem to work as they never go out of business!!LOL I used a brilliant hypnosis tape that worked wonders. It retrains your mind to eat until you feel full, like most thin people do. It is not a diet at all as they just do not work. If you are interested send me a PM and I could send you a copy. I lost 21 lbs in a month. I wish you all the best Linda, you deserve it my friend!!

Hi Linda welcome back, it seems like a lot of people went into a time of depression around Easter and after - including myself but am out of it now. It sounds like you have been busy and moving forward, I wish you the best with your gym and Weight Watchers, I need to do something myself but have not gotten motivated to do anything. I will be cheering you on though if that helps :)
