    Default What's Up? Where's everyone?

    I have enjoyed this site for at least 6 years and have NEVER seen it so slow. Only a few people seem to be here. It's getting boring. What's going on? Everyone just off enjoying their new life?

    Just to brighten your day, here's Monarch Lake that we snowshoed around last week in Colorado. Only 6+ miles but so much more difficult than just walking down the street! But look at that beauty.

    Then another hike we saw no wildlife for miles, but got back to the trailhead to see moose licking the salt off our car.

    Hi Sharon

    I know what you mean. I think I will just have to make up some controversial posts to get everyone riled up ;-)

    Wow, that is a lot of snow. Today we are hoping for a high of 28 Celsius ….I say hoping because Summer so far this year has been rather lack lustre.

    It does appear to be awfully quiet on this site. Maybe people are still recovering from Christmas and the New Year. I'm sure people still use the site. What is concerning is the number of people responding. So few and it appears to always be the same people. Hopefully this is only a temporary anomaly. ����

    I'm one of those people who dropped off of this site. I'm not sure why other than I got into maintenance and didn't need as much support. What I did and still do like about this site is everyone was always helpful. I don't remember any negative comments. Everyone seemed to understand the what you ate and how much you exercised wasn't one size fits all. I came here today because I'm days away from my 5 year anniversary and I wanted to see if anyone was still around.

    HI I agree, there doesn't seem to be much new lately. I do like to see what and how others are doing as it keep me motivated and on track. I will be coming up to me 2 year anniversary in January and hoping that I don't gain any weight. I seem to have stopped losing weight now and seem to be 60/61kg for the past 6 months now. I can certainly eat more than in the beginning, but i do know when to stop eating now. I would still like to lose another 4kg, but I somehow think my body says this is it now. I have my daughters wedding at the end of the year and do not want to gain anything before then. So please keep posting on here.

    Gosh, I want to be where those pictures are! Stunning!

    As to where everyone is - it's wild that so many longtime posters all seemed to disappear at once. I'm a total worrier, so I automatically worry that something has happened when someone who has been here for years suddenly drops off the face of the earth (this page). I hope they're all well, and out living their best lives too busy for all of us left behind.

    I have something super duper exciting coming up in 18 days, and I can't wait to bombard you all with pictures

    Sharon,
    Beautiful pictures! I think I'm only one of a few who absolutely loves the snow. That moose! O M G!!!
    The site is kind of slow and hopefully everyone is out there living their best life. I now know that this site is a part of my maintenance plan and I need to come on here, read, and post for accountability!

    Guilty of being a slacker on the site. I have had one head cold after another, and just felt punk! Our weather has careened from 70 to the 20s to 70, and I think sick people still go out places when they are ill!

    I have noticed folks are "off" periodically. I'm trying to figure out maintenance. Like the weather, I seem to be going up and down the same 4-5 lbs. Then again, not getting as much sleep or exercise as normal with the head cold!

    So would you like some cheese with my "whine"? You guys are the best~
    [I]HW: 240 lbs SW: 199 lbs GW: 140 lbs

    1 MO = 167.0 2 MO = 156.4
    3 MO = 148.4 4 MO = 140.6
    5 MO = 136.0 6 MO = 130.0 (GOAL)
    1 YR = 122.0 2 YR = 140.00

    Happy with my weight; happy with my size; over-the-moon with my health!

    So grateful you are always here! I'm really struggling with just feeling punky and self-indulgent on top of that! Trying to distract me by creating rocking chair pattern/cushions from scratch.

    Like a prisoner, I bring less shame on myself if I'm busy, lol.
