Also is that ok with everyone else? I don't want to be the noob who makes everyone feel uncomfortable.

Welcome WannaBinPictures!

For you and Sara: There is a "test" board which is for the pure purpose of people testing out things: http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=88 I would suggest to just go there and post a few times, you won't disturb anyone, and then you are up to 10 posts! Alternatively just go to a topic that you find interesting and add something to the discussion! Don't be shy, people here love others who chat with them!

Real name: Lisa
Family: I'm a widow of two years. I have three wonderful sons ages 20, 22 and 24 and they all still live at home which I love! I'll post a picture of us below taken at Disneyland last Sunday on Dapper Day. Would love to see pictures of all of you and your families if you are willing to share!
Job/how I spend my days; I work full time as a manager at an HMO so that keeps me extremely busy. Family is my top priority so that takes up the rest of my time. Our fave thing to do together is visit Disneyland - we are only 15 minutes away!
obbies/inHterests: Travel. Oh and photography is an interest but haven't had time to take any classes yet.
Motivation for joining: Oops, forgot to mention that the first time. My motivation is that I want to get healthy. There's a history of diabetes in my family although I don't have it yet. I also have ankle arthritis and although weight loss won't cure it, losing some pounds can sure help. This is a great forum to help keep me going because I know I'm not in this alone and I can relate to all of you who are on this journey.
Well if my Mom lived 15 minutes from Disneyland I'd live with her too! When I first started here I needed to lose weight because of an old back injury that flared back up to where I had to do physical therapy. Even with 1/2 my weight gained back, I still have no back pain at all any more. It's good to remember why I did start and be so thankful that the pain I had every single day is no longer with me.

Thank you so much! Yes, the atmosphere was very fun. We attended for the very first time last weekend and plan on it again in September.

And I love the dress you're wearing!

Glad your back problem got better with weight loss. Makes me hopeful that my situation will improve as well.

[QUOTE=Eliza32;50822772]As a little starter...we usually go through the process of introducing ourselves.....

I think I have mainly gone through the list Eliza, but in true Eric Morcambe fashion: ' not necessarily in the right order'...

I am new to the boards too. I take a lot of strength from everyone's comments on here. Sorry if I haven't worked out the editing or abbreviations...
My name is Jules
I am 46 and a teacher.
I have a very busy and mixed day, which doesn't involve teaching outside of one classroom, so more like a desk bound job, and as other have said (sign of the times) busy with lots if paperwork that I struggle to keep up with.
I am married to hubby and have 4 children.
We enjoy Disney holidays. We did our first cruise last year and I am so embarrassed by how I looked in the photos that I won't have them in the album - I can't face them.
I follow mainly slimming world. I lost around three and a half stone/49 pounds, but then work got busy... I changed jobs and it was enjoyable but very busy and the weight crept back on in the last year, I am still one stone/14 pounds in credit, but don't want it to creep on any more.
As others have said, I felt much healthier when the weight was off.
I welcome the support from everyone on here. I think it helps to focus me in and I work well in teams. I play netball and rounders (rounders for the first time since school) - and it is funny how the brain fools you into thinking you can do all those things that you once did with ease as a teenager - like catching a small hard ball!

Hi Jules...thanks for the intro.

Just a tip.......Americans generally don't understand the whole 'stones' thing!!! (Magadalene does, but she's from Germany).....probably best to convert to pounds if you can, it helps the others understand where you're at. Took me ages to get my head around it (and I still have to get the calculator out to do it every week!!).....then for the equipment in the gym, I have to convert to kg Think I need to find a conversion app for my phone

Isn't amazing how without the additional weight and thanks to regular exercise life in general is so much easier!

And thanks for the compliment!! I really like that picture, too! I have to admit that part of the appeal of cruising is that it gives me an opportunity to dress up that I usually don't have! Of course it would be easier if I would not have to drag the luggage on an international flight!

Hi Christine! Welcome to the challenge! Do you design scrapbooks professionally? What a fascinating job!

Thanks! I love the dress, too! I actually bought it just because it was on sale and I fell in love with it without having any idea of when I would be able to wear it...

Welcome Jules! If you have any questions about how to use the board, just ask ahead! We are all happy to help!

What is rounders? I never heard of that sport - but then English is not my native tongue.

It's kinda like Baseball.....played a lot in schools in the UK, but is becoming quite popular as a fitness option for women...some of the girls I work with play in a team after work one evening a week, they play against other workplaces.......I thought about it, but I'm lousy at hitting a ball!!!

Ah, I see! Would not be anything for me though. I have never been able to throw or catch a ball and it wasn't until I was well in my 20s that my eye doctor told me that that is not surprising considering my very strong astigmatism which supposedly makes true three-dimensional-vision difficult. So I never saw where the ball really was...

I don't seem to have the hand-eye coordination I once had (I am having trouble hitting the ball) also, and I don't mean this in the wrong kind of way... I have trouble getting to first base as I am not fast enough and keep getting stumped out by the other team!
I would have liked to include your quote but... It hasn't come in.

Isn't it great that we can' talk' when we are so far apart!

Great pictures ladies! Thanks for sharing.

Welcome to all the new folks. We are getting to be quite a diverse group with folks from all over.

I still haven't gotten on the scale for March. Going to do it in the morning. We drove home today (500 miles). The plan was get up and have brunch with DS and head out around noon, but we hit the road early (got up at 4am) in order to avoid this silly storm. We did drive through some nasty rain with ice on the trees, but luckily no problems. I ate nothing but junk today. Peanut mms and coffee in the car. Going to make something with lentils for dinner if I ever get off the couch. Every time we come home from visiting DS I think I am a little sadder. We just don't want to be here anymore, but so far no luck with moving. It's not just missing Ds, but more just wanting to be somewhere else and done with this part of our lives. Does that make sense? Anyhow, all this 'stuff' is not helping with my healthy eating or dieting. Need to get my act together!

Anyhow, need to figure out what's for dinner and do some laundry. Have a great night! And a super Monday!
