Morning all. The clocks went back yesterday, so I supposedly got an extra hour in bed. I always feel I am cheated whether the clocks go forward of back. The horrible thing now is that when you wake up it's dark and when you come in it will be dark and you will have spend your whole day working.
I posted this under Chick Chat, not sure if you guys have seen it and sorry for duplication, but I though I would post it here - have a great week everyone

So, I had another loss despite my "bad week". I posted my thoughts about this on the Thanksgiving goal thread, won't bore you here also.
Rabbit: Good to hear the surgery went well. Congrats on the loss although it was less than you wanted and deserved! If you keep doing well and having smaller losses than you would like, you may want to check with your leader to see if you are having less points than you need! Wouldn't that be nice!
Tech: Congrats on the loss. Good luck with the fridge problem. Yes, I actually use this program weight commander to graph my loss (it even makes adjustments for TOM. Odd thing, I should have been high due to TOM PLUS had a gain, but went down 1. HMMM.
LE: Hope things calm down for you soon!
Pyria: We missed you! Welcome back.
BFB: Good for you! Exercise induced achiness is a great feeling! How do you like it?
Sorry to those I missed, I can't remember everything and have no time to read back through now.
HmGood Morning all!!!!
It got kinda cold last night soo I went out and bought my cats some fleece blankets!!They survived-of course they are inside the house with central heat and fleece blankets!! Hmmmmm..who is trained in this household????
BFB--Too funny!!!I love to escape and become a child!!Now with a 5 y/o it doesnt look like I am a complete fool sometimes!!!!
Elise-Dont U just hate it when the post disappears????Congrats on the loss!!!!
Pryia-your post made me tired just reading!!!!
Speaking of tired, I napped half the day yesterday!!!It felt good to sleep and rest the weekend away!!!!!
Ok--big question???????33 days and no Aunt Flo and 2 positive pregnancy test-----DO I RELAX AND SAY HORRAY JUST YET????????
or do I use that 3rd test?????If it is really true--I will have a new baby on July 4th!!!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!Refman and I sort of celebrated all weekend!!!!!!
Okay there is no way I can see you are late and 2 tests positive. YOU ARE PREGNANT!!!! I took my test one day late and it turned positive instantly. SO YES GIRL YOU ARE HAVING A BABY!!!! And what a great due date!!! July 4th!!!!! I am so happy for you. There are so many great baby sites out there. One you can make a calender for every month and it tells you what is going on. Let me know and I will find it for you.
Soon I may have some news to share too. No baby news but good news none the less!!!
RR CONGRATS!!!!!!!! I am so happy. Oh I will have to baby shop some more. I know so many babies coming this year!!!
RR - CONGRATULATIONS!! that is such great news and I'm sure that the tests are not a mistake - have you gone to the doctor yet to confirm?? I'm so happy for you, I think I know how much it means to you and I only hope that one day I'll get to share the same news. I don't think there's a doubt this time whether or not it's true - especially with your being so tired. KEEP US POSTED!
As for me, I was sick last week but I'm feeling better today, just a cold although lots of people seem sick around here. I'm getting a flu shot later in the week so hopefully that will help for the rest of the horrible winter. I was pretty good with the food and I'll check and post my weight tomorrow. I did cheat on a little bit of cake I shared with my husband yesterday but it was so yummy I think it was worth it.
Not much new to report. Still can't seem to make myself journal or exercise. I've been sleeping a lot (and let's pray I'm not like Vicki ). We went to my Grandma's 84th birthday party yesterday. It was fun. Other than that not much going on around here.
RR - Congratulations!!! (now I know why there were 11 new posts by Mon PM.)
Baily - Congrats on the loss.
BFB - liked the look back, although after K and the neighbor had a conversation from kitchen to kitchen over the drive, I'm not sure our new neighborhood is too far away from the past.
Thanks for the CONGRATS!!!I feel wonderful except for the more tiredness!!!I went to the healthclub and did my 5 miles on the treadmill--I am gonna lay off on weights and such until I read up more on that stuff!!! I think I am following a stricter diet now!!!Just had my ounce of pretzels after the gym!!!
Tech-Hmmmmm...U must let us know!!!!!*L*
Elise-The doctor doesnt want to see U until 10 weeks!!It is too strange that U would be almost out of your first trimester????
Well, must go fix supper!!
Have a great evening all!!!!
