as we try to lose our weight or overcome anything else we are trying to overcome......we have to remember to rejoice in all the small steps toward our final goal! when i set out on this 'new life style eating plan'....it was with my having set some small goals for myself (some point of start and a point to reach)! losing in ten pound increments at first and then setting small goals and finally....setting my long term goal as well! i have lost a total of thrity pounds so far! and...my first weight loss goal is to be down to 260 pounds by may 6th, 2008! i have another 6.5 pounds to go to reach that very first short term goal! when i get to that point...i will again....set another small goal for myself( i already have one in mind)! and... that next goal will be to be down to 230 pounds by september 6th 2008! that will give me four months.... to lose another thirty pounds( from 260#'s to 230#'s)! so ladies.....don't look at small set backs or a day of over indulging as the ruination of your efforts! take it one day at a time and if you should slip up.....get right back on board the very next mealtime! not!! i repeat not..... the next day! i think sometimes we are our own worst enemies! sometimes we feel like "oh well"... "i screwed up this mealtime..... so i might as well blow it for the whole day"! this is not true! if you should screw up for one meal....get right back into it for the next meal! and don't beat yourself up over it! just move past that and go on! i hope that by using my own dailey 'gains and losses'....i can help you in reaching you own goals! i am here for all of you! and i will respond to your needs a.s.ap! take care, boomertoo

Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
