Hello to you. I've just returned to the site after joining around a year ago so I still feel like a newbie here too. It might be helpful if you tell people a little more about your interests and which area you are from. I hope you find friends on here and just wish you luck.

Thank you lifeinvanilla in welcoming me to the site! I didn't realized that this site is based in UK, I am living in California, USA still working in health field. I started to find interests in traveling so I am also a newbie to that. I was in UK last year, been to Brighton, London, Liverpool. Planning to go back and see more of your beautiful country and also to visit Ireland, Scotland and Wales. I am also into reading, listening to music, novice photography, nature walks and making new friends!

Hi Bobo

Look to the right of your screen where you should see a turquoise-ish tab with a white arrow head in it, the tab moves up and down when you navigate so it is always visible at the side. Click on it and you will see notifications of replies, chat etc.

Chat is not a chatroom. Chat is where you can post private messages to another member.

It takes a bit of time to work out the site but once you work it out, it's easy peasy 🙂

Is it your profile photo you are trying to upload? ... you have to be patient as it takes a while to process ... if you are still having trouble, email me your photo - [email protected] and I will upload it for you 🙂 Sally 🙂

Hi Sally
I deleted my account and rejoined to see if that worked - but it didn't! I will give it another go and leave it running overnight...!

Hi and Happy New Year to all. Im a newbie here looking to pass the lonely evenings. I like a good chat.
This year I plan to continue my weight loss plan - 11lbs gone already!!! - probably put a few on though, will face the dreaded black square on Thursday eeeeek.
I also plan to make some new friends - help me out please.
Im 56 and still working full time - grrrrrr
I have 2 grown up children and 3 adorable grandchildren.
Been single for quite a long time and have lots of friends who are not single so that kind of limits my socialising
Just starting to feel a bit lonely and socially isolated.
Anyone else feel like this?
Response from NorthernChris made on 2nd Jan 2019 00:02:41
Hi. I am new here too. Always up for a chat,and also on a weightloss plan! I need to lose some of the pounds that I mysteriously gained over Christmas! Catch you soon.
Response from hydro62 made on 2nd Jan 2019 10:17:23
Hi Thanks for the response. I'm on SW plan and find it easy enough to follow but avoiding temptation is a challenge .... chocoholic here
Response from NorthernChris made on 2nd Jan 2019 10:40:38
Cheese is my enemy! Why oh why do they make it so tasty? Ha ha!
Response from hydro62 made on 2nd Jan 2019 11:39:40
I do love cheese too .... with crackers lol
Response from Northern made on 2nd Jan 2019 11:50:05
Hello. Welcome to the site. I’m in my 40s, live in the North East, always happy to chat.
Response from NorthernChris made on 2nd Jan 2019 12:01:10
My top cheese tip is: buy good quality strong cheese so that I only need a thin sliver 🙂
Response from hydro62 made on 2nd Jan 2019 15:54:45
Hi Northern thanks for your response. NorthernChris ... top tip!!!
Response from NorthernChris made on 3rd Jan 2019 17:13:29
Hmmm, having lost almost two stone in the last year I seem to have gained 4lbs in the last fortnight. I wonder how THAT happened? Curse you, Christmas cake, cheese and mince pies!

Okay... sensible eating here I come.
Response from hydro62 made on 3rd Jan 2019 20:08:49
Oh dear Chris hope you can get back on your plan.
The scales were kind to me ..... 1lb gain .... i will take that. Cheat night tonight .... frerraro rocher im coming to get you.
