Glad to have you Rafix!

I'm not sure I want to spill my life story here on a public board, so I'd love it if we could email each other a get-to-know-each-other message. See what struggles each of us has, what kind of support we need. And then I'm fine with messages on this board.

I will disclose that I'm a health coach and can help people with their mindsets and goals. But I'd prefer to share my documents privately and not post those here, either.

I'm not going to put my email address here, but I'll private-message it to our little group if you want it. If you're too new to have the ability to send messages, we'll figure something out!

The easiest way to communicate and what I've already been doing is through journals.

Yes, there seems to be no way to reply to private messages. Maybe we can just post daily on this thread (for general support) and then message each other thru journals??

OK, let's report in. 1) How are you doing, 2) name at least one victory, and 3) tell us where you would like support right now.

1) I'm doing good. Wish the scale would budge, but 2) did see a half-inch drop in my right thigh (hoping the left followed suit! ) so I can't complain. Another good thing - I started an exercise program today with a personal trainer. Hoping that gets the tape measure moving. 3) I need to be held accountable with working out on my own (only seeing the trainer every 2-3 weeks).

Hi Rita and welcome
Unfortunately there aren't many of us left here. Just Trappa and I, I believe.
The best way to get involved is to join some challenges (Challenges and boot camp thread) (I do the daily weigh in) and also to start a journal.
A journal is the ultimate tool for correspondence !!

Hey Yosemite, I see you started a journal. that's awesome. That is a great start.
Just move around the forum, join conversations, ask advice and before you know it you will have lots of people drooping by to say hello.
