    Hi everyone, I just wanted to let you know I am still working on healthy living. I'm holding steady with my weight which is better than gaining. I'm having internet trouble since we moved. But I'm here and thinking of you all. I'll try to check in from time to time at work! I need my healthy living support *fix*!

    Hi, Michelle. I just joined this forum after hiding out here for all 22 weeks! I think this a great support. Like WW, this is about support, accountability, and seeking progress -- not perfection. So every good choice is a step in the right direction. Any missteps, just get back on track without beating yourself up about it. Glad to hear you're holding steady; hope your internet connection kicks in soon!

    Thanks everyone! Things have been going really bad at home with difficult child, but I'm trying to stick with this plan. I am very comfortably 2-3 pant sizes smaller than I was 4 months ago. My new size puts me completely out of the plus size department!! I'm going to my adult children group when I can and it helps with my baggage. I can only do what i can do.

    While I'm no where near the weight or size I'd like to be, I am glad I have made improvements. My goal was to be feeling confident in a bathing suit--in a much smaller size than I was in. Well, I bought a bathing suit that makes me feel a bit more comfortable (kind of like a short dress). Believe me, I had hoped to be much thinner by now, but I think my goal was unrealistic. And you know what, I am the size I am at this moment and I can't not live because of it. The point of this healthy living is to live well and sitting at home hating my body is not living well. I am the size that I am and it's okay. That doesn't mean I'm not still working on myself or my size, just trying to accept me.

    Michelle, congratulations on dropping 2 - 3 sizes. That's a great accomplishment. And even better is your attitude toward your body. I'm glad to hear that you're living life now, rather than sitting around waiting until you're the "right" size.

    Sorry that things have been so rough with your difficult child, but keeping up with the healthy choices will keep your strength up.

    WFEN's right...that positive attitude you have will help you to reach your goals faster.
