Hi Everyone! Well, we're back for another LIVE CHAT in the WL&D Community! Think we should make these a regular part of our Tuesday evening and perhaps start planning a second one for the weekend. So ... times that would work on the weekend would be most appreciated.
Don't forget to refresh your screen to view the most current activity. Don't see many people online yet, but we'll hope it picks up!
So .. any particular successes or struggles today? Anything you'd like to see to support your better??? Love to talk to you!
Was thinking about the gum for the afternoon bus ride! Think you should take care of you and get some extra sleep tonight. While I LOVE your company, want you to get enough rest to try and avoid getting sick .. ((Hugs)) ..
You have a great commitment to others and it shows. The trouble is .. sometimes a person thinks they can not and it takes the encouragement and assistance to Believe it!
BTW --- There is another post .. I think the one about knowing your teammates .. that I am really interested in your opinion. JoyRenee and Got_To_Do_It offered some suggestions on how to tie in our teammates .. and would like to know what you think about those ideas or any ideas you may have.
In fact, You made me think of a game they play on the MH SOcial COmmunity. It's called "Tag You're It" And in it, people give 5 random facts about themselves and then tag 5 people to plan. From what I can tell, the game has been going on for a long time (I could look at the date of the original post, just don't feel like doing it right now). We could play something like that, but only tag 1 or 2 people...?
Lucinda is sick .. she's been in touch and trying to get her strength back. She also works for herself with a fulltime business so getting sick really zaps her because she has to work no matter what. She said she should be back in a day or two.
There are so many lovely friends who are so good at helping each other!!! And yes, JoyRenee and Got_To_Do_It are both inspirational!
Chit Chat and Twehner .. perhaps since you know this "tag" game well .. maybe you could start it for next week's Live Chat??? Think we'll keep having them on Tuesday evenings and then would like the community to pick a time on the weekend that will best suit everyone . We're trying to have a time where those overseas can participate as well .. and be able to catch more of the West Coast members as well!
Sure .. I'll remind you and Twehner and perhaps this week we can talk about the best way to do that. There are more than 55 participants in the challenge and would certainly like to get some good Q&A sessions going on here and share some weight loss tips and strategies .. as well as getting to know each other better.
Valentine's Day OR the Super Bowl .. don't know which one comes first!
Perhaps we should have a Valentine Party??? Maybe even exchange Valentines!!! Oh myyy .. ideas are flooding in .. we could get a Valentine from each community??? Do the words "Scavenger Hunt" sound F U N ?????
Starting to feel a little better, between flu and funerals, life's a b- - ch.. Oh well, I think the flu was the reason why I lost a few pounds. But I'm not complaining. A valentines party sounds great. We can have make believe chocolate heart candy???LOL.
Nut Free? Well I guess that leaves me out.LOL. Some times you feel like a nut, some times you don't. Just joking...Sounds great! I'll pretend that I'm eating choc. covered strawberries without the allergic reaction.......Bring it on.
blksapphire and bet .. am interested in what we can do as a community to better support all members of the team or what, in particular, we can do to help you. As we move forward in trying to get more tools and information available, it helps to prioritize if there is something more we can give you quicker.
blksapphire - Thank you for that remarkable request. I will obtain that for you and make a post and Health Page about it .. and send you a note as well. That is a wonderful suggestion and, so you know, we are working to develop more information in this area as well.
You keep coming to the chats and I'll get the information you request .. deal???
About the chocolate, we can all have some without making little piggy's out of ourselves. Hershey's already has theirs in little squares that we can break off and enjoy. I just have to show some will power and not break off more than one or two. It's funny because I'm not much of a candy person, but for some reason, I feel like I need some chocolate right now. Hmmmm, and there is no such thing in sight. No junk food here.
I agree ...................it gives us a different perspective sometimes which is certainly appreciated. Makes you think about something in a different way sometime and what was once an obstacle becomes attainable!
Joy2000 - Please do not be nervous for tomorrow!!! Tomorrow is just the beginning of your journey and you and your team will do GREAT!!! Really do think you should bring your group here for some additional support! What are you doing with them and how are you all staying engaged???
Hi Chit Chat! Yes, am anxious to see how the allergy forum goes. I have some I know about and others I don't and my hubby is having issues but I can't get him to stay on a darn elimination diet to figure it out!!
I'll put a topic out there. How do you deal with boredom impacting your diet? With both my husband and I employed one or the other of us leads the other into temptation when we are bored which happens often. I sure hope we find jobs soon!
I think my husband has a problem with simple carbs or wheat. I get him going with just vegetables and lean meat for a few days and as soon as he starts feeling good he goes and eats potato chips or something else bad!
I am trying so hard not to respond to your little contest, but what the heck. What would you like for valentines day? Just don''t ask for a BMW, cause that's what I want. LOL yeah, like that will happen. Maybe when pigs fly.LOL Sorry but I need a little humor right now. Just had a rather bad week, so I need to be silly. Now for me, the sweetest contestent would be Colin Firth, covered in chocolate. Sorry, could not resist.
That is a fantastic topic and I look forward to seeing it posted in the forum .. ???
Skailark .. you are too funny ... and you're on!!! Perhaps Twehner and I can do a crunch contest ... although I think I should get spotted points for my handicap .. like in bowling!
Welcome Trudie .. so nice to see you.
Unfortunately guys .. it's taken me 10-15 minutes to get this far and my screen won't even let me keep typing. Not sure the problem this time . but am going to have to very reluctantly say goodnight. Please keep chatting as long as you like .. and I'll check the thread tomorrow.
We'll plan this again for next Tuesday evening .. so mark your calendar!
Have a wonderful evening, restful sleep and an on target healthy day tomorrow!!!
I'm so glad you went there first. LOL. I was going to ask you about who was delish, so now I don't feel so naughty. ha ha. But yes, Colin just has that something that we all want. Is it Lord Henry Dashwood, or Mark Darcy.???? I use to like Hugh Grant better, but Colin has him beat by a mile.
Bet, you and I have both been to the same place. I was for Hugh and now it is Colin. He is very manly and you know he could take care of you but still has that little boy charm. I'll stop now - I'm happily married but we do allow each other to lust after a few famous figures...
I'm heading off to bed everyone. Nice chatting! Good night!

It was just soo cold today 32 for the high and all our pipes froze well they are still froze no water its grrrrr!! want the warm weather bk!!
