    going to scare myself when I start seeing how much I'm taking in!

      If my s-i-l wants to lose 2 pounds per week, he can only eat 2,400 calories a day.  That's 1/3 right there!

      btw, he's gained 40 pounds since marrying my daughter who IS a calorie counter.  The resistance he shows is interesting.  Sugar is love in his family.  Can lettuce and veggies become love?  We will see!

        veggies and stuff. I really think that good food tastes better. My body doesn't like it if I eat the bad stuff. But I still like to give it a cheeseburger now and then! :)

        And trust me, if I can learn to love brussell sprouts anyone can! Let us know how it goes with your son in law!

            For sure keep us posted!

            Maybe we should start a little weight loss club here.

            The great people over on the GUS diaries are having, not an easy time, but it's a little easier to quit when you have all of your friends cheering you on.

            •  Well, at Lance's great service site (1+ / 0-)

              we can set up a blog, even share our personal journey.

              It's really an amazing service Lance is providing for free.  I have 20 I want to lose to get back to my teenage body self.

              The best, swim with hand paddles and fins for an hour, crawl a lap, back stroke a lap.  Almost 600 calorie burn!  I started yesterday.

              So, get to it, create your account, let me know, and then we can learn how to use the blog there perhaps.  I am very open to helping each other be the best we can be.

              Wouldn't it be a hoot if, in response to all the bull crap politically, we used our frustrations to become our VERY BEST, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  It would be just dessert, for a fun pun.

              •  That's a great idea! (0+ / 0-)

                I'll set up an account this week and let you know.
                I want to try and learn how to use the site a little better before I jump right in.

                It's so much easier do do when you have someone telling you that you better get up and do it!

                You're right - it's just awesome what he's set up. All of those other ones that are like his want to charge you so much money!

                Oh that's the best way to look at it! Instead of getting mad and doing nothing but be mad, go burn it off by being active. I'm with you!

                Yep - it really would be cake! :)
