Welcome to Vol 9 of our little thread! For nearly 2 ½ years, this thread has been going strong! Many have come, a few have gone and some of us have stuck it out thru thick and thin. Our gains have been greater than our losses. While many of us have lost some weight all of us have gained a lot. Weve gained friendship. Weve gained insights and we've gained confidence. Weve expanded our horizons in ways we may have never thought possible. And weve gained BLING! Yes, seven of us trained and completed the Princess ½ marathon together in March. Youll find we have different goals, different methods for achieving better health. Perhaps we may all wish there was a simple quick fix, however we know that is not a reality. We fight the daily battles with food and exercise. Some days we win, other days we struggle. But we support one another, we share and we care as we all work to achieve balance in our lives. Its true that this is a weight loss thread, and we hope youll choose to join us because youll find that we are about so much more.
