This will be a new one for me! Doing personals from one thread into a new thread! I can do it
Diana - Down the day after your bday, that's great gift in itself!
Coondocks - Woohoo! Down is down Just stalking you on twitter - classes start on Wednesday? How is that going to fit in to everything else you do?
Rennie - Great WI this morning, you are nearing the 160's! You can do it! Nice work on the treadmill!
Ona - Great WI with no activity!
Kukkie - I'm going to BC in August, on the 6th I'm excited! It's actually turning into a great summer, my boss is gone for 3.5 weeks on vacation, so I can really make the dept. my own which is actually fun! I can work through anything I think! Strep was pretty nasty though, I had to shorten most of my work days where I could. Sounds like the new job is going good, and once you get into the new routine's everything else will fall into place.. including weight loss I find it easier to lose weight the more I work - it forces me to bring foods that are on plan.
JamiSue - we are women, which requires us to be able to do it all Who knew bathroom talk could be such regular topics (excuse the pun!), Sorry to hear about your sodium gain, but with the amount of water you drink it'll be gone in no time!
Roxy - you actually extend the life of things by keeping them clean.. which is giving me a dieting idea ... one I might ignore today though! Love the car story! I rarely take painkillers so this sensation is very new to me, it puts me into a blissful, unpainful and very sleepy mood. I think I am nearing the end, which is great! Hope the sinus infection/cold goes away soon!
Angie - wow, thats a long day! Hope you have a restful evening! Don't worry about feeling like a wimp from pilates, I think it kicks most people's butt the first time! When I was WAY younger and WAY more in shape, I used to run, swim, hike, do weights, etc... but yoga, omg, every. single. time. I'd just wake up aching! Keep at it
As for me? I got the little bump up I was expecting, it came sooner than I thought though Up 1.1 today to 261.2. But last Monday I weight 267.0 so I really can't complain. Maybe next time I could stay sick until I hit the 240's though? I'm not being serious! Tomorrow will be my last day of eating lightly and not counting calories. Wednesday means business!!

MyFitnessPal ID: Vixsin013 No longer Overweight = 164 I'm comin' for you...
Jami you are crazy, I was cracking up at your morning story the kids of course want to know, "why are you laughing?". ... yeah I did see where it said the max of sodium is 1300 to 1500 that is impossible. But 2500 just seems crazy also ... can't win them all.
Mango I to think it's frustrating when I do everything right and I have a gain ... but know your whoosh is in the making, a good one is coming
Tammy... you are definitely welcome here There is also a diabetes/diabetic thread here. I have read their thread but don't remember if they do daily weigh ins. I know they record their fasting/waking glucose and check in often. Just wanted you to know, if you didn't already That Quantum scale would drive me bonkers to use to my old faithful that has my 10 best recorded weight ins saved
eclipse on your new low, You Go Girl
Vixsin glad you had a great day It's wonderful when things fall perfectly into place
Thanks Diana yeah we are getting close to our limit on this one, I keep looking because you all always leave me behind I think I was on page 9 of part 2 last month . I know I've gotta keep up
Future I just found out that DH ordered them off ebay and not off the site and they (the people that listed them removed the listing/the Zumba people had them remove them) so claim is filed with PayPal and I guess I'll order them . Always something to mess up my plans. You had mentioned the other day that you logged everything into MFP so I said "let me look her up" DD bought a peach shake for me from chickfila she put it in the freezer it took me 5 days to eat it. I figured from here on out that is how I will eat all shakes. The calories are split up and I don't feel as bad Glad you got your blizzard
Thanks Angie sorry about the soreness that means it's working right Thanks for the new thread.
envelope I'll say I love July when I don't see that 7 until it's 167 been a lot of back and forth for me You have done wonderfully
Thanks Aimee, I had typed everything on the old thread and figured no one would read it so I moved it here I hope to be in the 160's by the end of July Enjoy your last day of laxed eating, back to the grind on Wednesday
Ok I just ate 2 cups of grapes gonna get my last 20ozs of water in and go to bed, Night Night

Aimee I lucked out and was able to find an approved Proctor quickly so I can take all my courses correspondance and have him supervise the exams, woot woot! I am planning on using teradmill time as reading time all in one, i like reading while i'm on there anyway, might as well learn something ha ha. No worries on the bump, it happens, throw down! Good on ya for carrying the personals over - I cant do it, willhave to wait till im at my desk tomorrow.
FutureThoughts -- I'm glad you had a nice birthday. It sounds like you made some good decisions and still REALLY enjoyed yourself! The best of both worlds...that's exactly as it should be on our birthdays! Oh yea, I'm glad you liked my story. I must admit that it had me giggling off and on myself today! LOL.
Angie -- Sounds like you had a rough day and even though it was only two hours, I'm glad to you had time to unwind with Cam. Hope you enjoyed your downtime with the bachelorette! And thanks for starting the new thread!
LGW -- No worries! We're all here to give what we can and take what we need! Keep takin' care of yourself, and we'll here if and when you're ever ready for personals!
Envelope -- GREAT job so far. Down almost 8lbs already this month!!
Aimee -- Yes, we are required to do a lot aren't we. I hear you about the cold...it's not like we wish for them but should the colds happen to bring us a loss...we'll take it! And yes, about 6lbs down from last Monday! That's GREAT!!
Rennie -- You're so dang close to the 160's! We're both almost the same lbs away from the next decade. Let's do it!! Glad you got a kick out of my story. I LOVE that I could share that you ladies here!

Thanks for starting this, Angie! Sorry I've been MIA - my internet service has been really spotty the last week or so, and the last couple of days I haven't had any at all. There are a lot of things I love about living in Mexico, but the spottiness of the utilities is not one of them!
Anyhow, I'm down to 146.8 - first time under 147. Less than two more pounds to go until I'm officially a "normal" weight!
It's going to be a HOT one here today! Currently its 23 (29 with the humidity), and going to 37 (48 with the humidity), I am planning to go to a friends place after work to swim in her pool. Should feel nice after a long day at work, and in the incredible heat!
Rennie - grapes sounds pretty yummy to me this morning! If you continue with this dedication you'll definitely hit the 160's by the end of the month! My original goal was to hit 263 by the end of the month, but I might revise that so I'm in the 250's by the end of the month. I was 257 on my last summer vacation a year ago - so I really haven't made much progress over the last year! Let's not think about that though
Coondocks - Sounds like it'll actually fit pretty perfectly into things then! Tomorrow I'm back to the world of counting calories, I think today I should be into eating meals not just a few bites of things so it's time! And yes, I will throw down!
JamiSue - My boyfriend got mono a few years ago and my best friend at the time kept trying to get it from him, I thought she was crazy, but maybe I understand her craziness now (or perhaps laziness!).
Jeri - congrats on the new low, and being so close to being "normal" But honestly, who wants to be normal when you can be spectacular
And with that I'm off to work! Have a great day ladies!

Walk to Mordor Challenge: 250 out of 1779 miles done
Whoooooshhhhhhhhhh! Down 4.1 to 200.6 - hot damn! Goodbye water and then some.... I was pleasantly surprised by the scale this morning. I can truly only think that it must have been my body holding on to some serious water which caused the gain yesterday, but glad to see it has decided to let it go. Especially since TOM is due to arrive by the end of the week, so all the more surprising!
I also want to share with you ladies that yesterday during my spare time at work (first of all, I really only have spare time because I'm still relatively new and just doing a lot of reading to familiarize myself with stuff, I'm so bored at the moment ), anyway so during my spare time yesterday I created one massive spreadsheet for myself. Essentially it's a big food/weight tracker - I really need to get in the habit of tracking what I eat instead of keeping it all in my head. So the way I set it up was so that I'm still following my LAWL plan, but in addition to that, for each exchange I'm also counting the calories. I made it so that it automatically tallies all my calories for the day without me doing any additional work. AND I made it so that I can log my weigh in and the weight change, so that if/when I get stuck I can always look back to see what it was that I ate that caused a loss/gain, if I need to lower/up my calories, etc. The best part is that I uploaded it to my amazon cloud account, so I can access it from any computer. I don't have to wait until I'm home because it's on my personal laptop, or wait until I get to work, because it's on my work laptop. I can update it anywhere! I actually also used it to plan out today and 3 more days of eating already as well. I am going to slam this thing into the ground now, I'm pumped.
