Default Weekly Journal Buddy Thread (2/5 to 8/5)

Since the original thread is getting so huge, I thought I'd start the weekly journal thread and go Monday to Sunday - okay with everyone?

First - there are a few things to deal with from the original thead...

Famograham: Hope hubby gets to make lots of visits home this summer.

*Jill*: Hope its all good news at the doctor!

Kim: 3.5lbs! Now that's certainly a very nice loss !

Sandi: Another "clean" weekend - you're moving right along! Your progress is so helpful to me (for one thing, I have so much more time on my hands now that I don't have to berate you all the time)

Shelby: Thanks for the beef curry stew recipe. Don't forget to check in with your weight-loss today! Good job on the 2lb. loss!

BethC: Another 2lb. loss to congratulate - good girl!

Wow, everyone's doing so well. Its great to head into spring all renewed and full of motivation, isn't it? We're all blooming (and shrinking at the same time). GO US!

Yes it is nice. It's also nice to be one of the people who have stuck around at the gym for once. I'm no longer one of those newbies who start in January and give up by April. Not that I have not done that many times before. Sure feels good to be one of the ones sticking around.

Thanks for starting the new thread Jill. You new picture is great.

Today's Food 05-02-05
Breakfast - Swans Breakfast pocket w/ 1 small coffee
Lunch - Cottage cheese with peaches
Snack - Fruit cup (with honeydew, cantalope, and pineapple) Summer means lots of fruit around my house.

Dang, now I can't add some bacon indiscretions from Saturday morning. (2 small pieces, about 2/3 of a slice)

and Sunday, 4 small pieces, a slice and 1/3 total.

Thank you for starting a new thread. What a success our last one was! I hope this one is just as good.

Oh & Kclay, I missed it, but you asked how the shower was? Read my journal for further info, but the food from the shower was ok.

Linda, my stepdad is gone for the next year now w/the USAF. It's just me, mom & the dog. I have my own apt, I'm only 5 min away, but I worry about her sleeping all alone in that big house. I'm so glad you have your little ones w/you, and you just need to tell them they need to be as brave as their dad is. I commend him for going to do that. So, we're in this together!


5/2
1 cup coffee
1/4-1/2 cup skim
2 meatless breakfast patties
1 cup Kashi GoLean Crunch! cereal
3/4 cup skim

1 cup jumbo elbows
1 cup turkey chili (homemade w/beans, tomatoes & green pepper)
1 cup skim

1 cup 2% milk
12 small pieces California roll
1 packet soy sauce

And now freaking Food Network has "The Secret Life of...CHIPS"!!!!!!

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU To Kim, Ali and Jill for your support on my hubby leaving!

It's very scary. Last year he went very last minute, we had 24 hours to make the decision and then he was gone..but it was only one month. The team had lost a guy and his cousin was already there and suggested Rudy. It turned out that he was very successful in the training and now wants to go back

The whole thing is really difficult and this year, since he's in from the beginning it's going to be a very long haul May 15ish until maybe September-October...although there's no way to know for sure..all depends on the fires.
At this point there are already fires burning here in BC.

Unfortunately, I have a husband who thrives on adventure and just couldn't pass it up, and now I have to learn how to be a single mom if only for a few months, and help my kids through several months without their beloved Daddy
Hopefully the money will be worth it and he'll be able to spend the whole rest of the year at home (that would be the payoff)

BUT....and here's the focus on the positive I will learn to be more self sufficient, I'll be able to focus all my attention on taking care of myself, learning to love my body and getting healthy and ..come fall..he just might have a big surprise in store when he comes back

Sorry for going on and on but this is an area that I really do need support in...LOL..if you couldn't tell

I truly appreciate it, and wanted to say thank you so much!!

xoxo
Linda

Just wanted to check-in to the new thread w/my foods for today. I'm having a tooth pulled (don't ask!) at 4pm, so I doubt I'll be able to eat anything else after that, probably just liquids.

Monday
4 - 2 eggs
1 - oil in cooking
3 - bacon
2 - WW toast
2- Coffee w/milk
6- grilled chicken over
0 - salad
1 - dressing
So far - 19 points

But you did tell us...isn't makin' bacon the same as cooking it?

Nice to hear you've become a fixture at the "Y", Howie. I hear you and Kimberley are even being written about to motivate others. I hope you're both proud of yourselves.

That's the attitude PeachGirl - you went a bit over yesterday but are right back on track today. One tiny step backward and a giant leap forward!

Good for you Linda - seeing all the positives in your situation. Keep up the good work and come fall you and hubby can be very adventurous together.

Ohhhh, I feel your pain, BethC (I'm the biggest dental weenie around and most people here can attest to it). Make sure you sip some liquids, even if you can't eat for a bit...

Thanks for the nice words about the new pic. It was taken in one of those situations where the lighting was great and most of my wrinkles are diffused.

My MOM made the bacon. She cuts it up & then fries it all up at once, and puts it in a bag in the fridge. I fed some to the dog, too.
