I agree with you, Morgan. The boards are always more fun if more people are participating. But life has a nasty habit of getting in the way I guess.

Very true, Letson.

But every now and then, a question is posed.
And that's why we stay involved. We want to help anyone that needs or wants some help.

Health much improved and lives have been saved with FTS.
If answering a simple question helps add another, it's far more than worth it.

Happy New Year, Morgan! Smiley

I don't make a practice of making New Year's resolutions.
If I see need for a change in my life, I don't wait for the year's end/beginning to do it.
I simply adjust my attitude, make a commitment,  and stick to it.

That being said, I am happy to hear that your NY resolutions are doing well.

I hope 2018 is good to you. Smiley Smiley Smiley

Thanks Tony.  I managed my way through some tricky moments during the holiday season, but I don't feel I missed out at. 

Though I'm not sure what to do with the biscuits and chocolates I received as presents.  I can incorporate some of the carbs but there are times I can't justify the carbs in relation to the quantity.  Lindor choclate balls (one of my favourite) are 5 carbs/ball - if I REALLY REALLY want it I will work it in, but really 5 carbs?Huh? not worth it.  My visitors are going to score well  Smiley

Hi, Morgan! Smiley

If you are at or near your goal, having an occasional carby treat is OK.
One (or even 2) 5gm carb piece of Lindor candy should not derail you.
Especially if you add it in to your daily carb max.

I did this a bit during the holidays and came out OK.

Just be careful NOT to do this often!!!
It is very easy to build bad habits where carbs are concerned, given we're carboholics.
This is how we got FAT in the first place. Wink

Take Care! Smiley

Happy New Year one and all.....have a safe, healthy and happy 2018.

Many of us will be making resolutions and taking stock of our lives and our health.

I think the No 1 resolution is usually one of "losing weight".  Always a good start.
Strike while the iron is hot and be determined to see it through.   I am committed to see the end of my weight struggles this year.  I'm so done of being a "yo-yo".  I didn't start on 1 January, I restarted mid October - just after my birthday.  So far I have lost 8kg (17lb).   Not bad since I'm post menopausal.  My age is another issue because I have to talk myself out of the "I'm too old - why bother" - "everything won't shrink back" .  No it won't and I won't be miraculously young again either.  But if I had found this lifestyle years ago, it would have made a huge difference then.

I have been on and off F2S for a few years now...think I started in 2012.  I have always done well when I commit to this lifestyle - unfortunately life got in the way and I have fallen off many times, BUT  I have always climbed back on and continued.  Sometimes being so disheartened by putting on the weight I had lost.   

It's not that I find it hard to follow this lifestyle but the fact that I couldn't cope with events that had me returning to old habits.

The positive, and yes there is a positive, is that I know what to do.   I know how to substitute, I know how to cook almost carb free,  I have learned coping skills and I know that unless I give "permission" to myself to fail (by having something I know is so bad for me) I CANNOT FAIL.

I don't cry over 'spilt milk' and fall off the wagon because something unexpected happened - for example,  I went out for coffee with a friend and had an almond milk latte and then when I finished I found out that they used sweetened almond milk at 9 carbs/250ml.   That's almost half my daily intake of 20 carbs.  I would have had black with cream if I had of known.  My bad - I should have checked beforehand but cafe was sooooo busy, I assumed they used same brand as the other cafe.....

Word of advice - NEVER ASSUME!!!!!!

I have to adjust what I was planning on having for dinner....sigh.

So everyone,  know it is never too late and it doesn't matter if your skin ends up being  a bit loose.  It too can be fixed - it's up to you as to how.  Exercise helps and surgery if it doesn't.  It depends on what you can live with.  But, firstly, you have to lose it  Smiley

One step at a time.....what's the saying? - a journey of a 1000 miles starts with one step.  You just have to take that step.....

Just remember, there is always someone here to help....take care everyone.

Somehow or other my post hasn't appeared, so I'll try again.

I'm so sorry for your loss Doug and Umpa.....losing someone is just devastating and losing parents even worse. 

I hope you keep the memories of those loved ones close to your heart and revisit them often.
