Hi all!! Guess everyone is sleeping in today!! Looks like everyone is doing well here. I went to PA yesterday to spend the night with DH while he was at drill. Took the dog and it was a little adventure. I was a little nervous about taking her to a hotel, but they were cool and she was very well behaved. She didn't like the sound of the doors opening and closing at all times of the night though!! She was polite after we told her to be quite a few times and barked under her breath!!

Hope everyone is having a super Sunday!!

Happy Monday everyone...

Well, it snowed all day yesterday and we have about 5 inches on the ground. I know it's not much - but I've got to drive in this Wednesday... MELT SNOW, MELT!!!!

KarenK - I love that little under their breath bark! My Staffy used to do that... like a little "muuHuff"... So cute!

Rabbit - I'd rather you have an excellent weigh in next week than get blown to smithereens...

Buffy - Excellent attitude about the small gain! I also buy clothes a little small so that it'll fit "in a little while". I have a pale butter yellow summer dress with a sheer jacket that I'm dying to shrink into!

I drank so much water yesterday that I thought I was going to float away. I've been filling up a container that I know fits 8 8oz cups and drinking ALL OF IT... The results? Down 2.5 this week!! Woooo Hoooo!!! I check back in with WW tomarrow night (I'm going once a month) and my total since January 16th is 10.5!!! Ooooh, such a happy camper... My profile shows my highest weight ever - to now...

Stay warm everyone!

Terri

Hi all! I'm going to join our new rec ctr. here and I am SO EXCITED!! At first, I thought we would just do a pay as you go thing until I went today on a free pass. I loved it. And I workout everyday anyway so I know I will use it. It surely helps that I have workout/walking partners. That way I know I will go.

Buffy, Oh, Buffy you are being so sensible! I had not thought of that. Glad I didn't stay too!

Punkin - You are right also and I sure hope I do have a good weigh in this week. Hooray for your 2.5 pound loss!! You are doing awesome!!!

Have a great week all! I feeling so energized from my morning workout!

Hi all!! Hope everyone is doing well this oh so chilly day!! (at least in Jersey!!) So far today, I'm OP and I've done my exercise. I walked the dog around the block!! (It's a big block, takes 20 minutes and I was walking fast!!) She did so absolutely wonderful!!! It's been a while since I took her out and made her work on heel. She's such a good girl.

I had a long talk with DH and told him I needed his help with this weight loss thing. He has agreed and says that he will support me and that he will follow the plan at home. I hope this approach helps. I avoidid some pitfalls at work by absenting myself, but I can't do that all the time. If I can just do good through this week then maybe I can do better. I haven't made it through a week since I strayed from the path.

Yesterday I fell down the basement steps . I went down in my socks which I know better than to do. Zoom, right down on my back. I am so lucky 'cause I only have a few bruises and a dented ego!!

Rabbit: I too am glad that you didn't blow up at WW. That would have been SO counter-productive!!! That's cool about the rec center. I have a membership to a local health club, but I don't go. I need a partner for encouragement, but my friend who used to go with me is on a totally different work schedule.

OK, I'm sitting here typing so much 'cause I'm starving and if I get up I know I'll head right for the kitchen.

Hope everyone has a super wonderful evening!!
Karen

Happy Monday!!!
Okay good news I am off tomorrow!! YEAH...but I have to take BJ to two appts. So I am going to grab my book and start reading it.

Pumkinseed. Our stats are so close. Check out mine at the bottom. Oh and pumpkinseeds are my fav. snack. A small bag at the drugstore by work is 2pts.

Stayed OP and offered to run some papers to our other office. So I had to walk there and back. Gotta sneak that excerise in.

Karen-Hang in there. There have been plenty of times I have stuck my butt to the chair so I would not get up and eat.

Hi All,

How is everyone this week? I have been busy lately! We got possession of the apartment Friday, so we were busy trying to clean and move some things in. Sunday they had my shower for me!! They almost had me too!! If I wasn't soo darn nosey, and my mom wasn't so bad at being inconspicuous (sp?), it would've worked!!

Mom tried to sneak her camera into my car, since I was driving to church, and it would've worked, if Jim hadn't tried to shove it under the seat w/o me seeing him, when we were getting back into the car! Then mom asked me 2x why I didn't have any makeup on, so I put makeup on when we got back to my house, and then she didn't even say, oh, I see you put your face on, or anything! We were supposed to be packing up mom's loveseat and old end tables to bring to the apartment, then take mom to Cracker Barrel for lunch. At this point, once i saw the camera, I knew we weren't going to CB! We had to go to the firehouse to drop off my car and p/u the XTerra...JIm had his old P/U...so of course I figured out that it was at the firehouse! Jim's not very good at keeping things from me, he's a bad liar!! We had a great time though! Got lots of nice things, but Linens N Things are a bunch of idiots...they didn't mark off the can opener, so we got 3 of them!! AND, they decided that since we registered for the cute little dolphin candle holder...like for the bathroom, they would just stick the other dolphin accessories on there too! They didn't mark it as "want" or "needed", but just stuck it there, like a suggestion!! I was wondering why my friend got us the back scrubber, soap dish and liquid soap holder in that dolphin design, but we didn't get the candle holder that we originally registered for!! I mean, the stuff she got was really cute, and we like it, but still... So I went into Fortunoff and LNT's online last night and took off everything except what we don't have!

I'm going to make Jim and Valentine's dinner tomorrow night in the apartment. I was looking for a nice romantic menu, but everything that's considered romantic food, I don't like...seafood, lamb, etc... So I'm making him a heart shaped meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans, and I'm going to make a chocolate cake, or brownies, have not decided, in a 9x13 and use a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut out shapes. Then sprinkle the bare cake with rasberries and cool whip! I hope it turns out as good as it looks in my head!!

It's comfort food, but we'll both enjoy it, and it'll be dressed up a bit.

Karen- Glad the pup is behaving! Glad to hear DH is going to be OP with you, I'm sure that'll be a huge help! OUCH...hope you're feeling better soon! Remember, take that ibuprofen every 4 hrs...for it to work right!

Terri- I love the way you describe things!! It's like, yeah, that's how you spell that!! Niki was great for that, in her younger days, when she could still hear every little thing!
Congrats on all that lost weight!!

RR- Glad you had fun at the ball! When is Mardi Gras? 6 wks hon?? Think it's time for some stronger drugs??!

OK, free time's over, gotta do some work!!

Lauren
Dam, forgot to WI...

Hello Everyone,

Been really busy, I need a break big time, but none are coming soon. Went to talk to the seamstress about bridesmaids dresses on Saturday. Eloping is looking better and better.... Then my MOH (maid-of-honor) and I went to look at the dresses I'd picked out, and the one I liked in person I don't like from photos so now I'm confused :confused: (if you want to see they're at http://www.eskimo.com/~dms/dress.html )

Karen - You're dog sounds cute. I'm not looking forward to walking mine at heel again after so long a break. Hope you're feeling better after you're fall. Ow!!

Terri - 2.5#s Congratulations.

Rabbit - too bad about the WI. Joining the rec center sounds great. Hope it works out.

RR - the Mardi Gras ball sounds like fun. I'd like to go to NO sometime for Mardi Gras, but K doesn't like crowds....

Buffy - Congrats on staying OP. Gotta sneak that exercise in where it doesn't feel like exercise.

LBH - Sounds like a fun Valentine's Day. Sometimes the simpler things are the best.

Well, gotta go get a new wheel for my car. I hit a pot hole and put a huge dent in the rim and now the tire doesn't hold air.

WI is tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed its a good one.

- Tech

Hi all!! Sounds like most of us are well. I've done pretty well so far today with eating. I'm at about 13 or 14 points. Not too bad, considering I had a chicken sandwhich for lunch. I don't know how I'm going to handle tomorrow yet. I better come up with a plan hmm!!

For those with dogs: I found out that Eukanuba is actually based on a mink chow. I bought Nikki mink chow and the pet store owner swears we will see an improved coat (with less dandruff ) in a week. Sure hope so. Maybe she will shed a little less too. It's certainly worth a try!!

Rabbit: How's the gym? And the sore muscles?

Lauren: Yeah on the shower. Linens and Things must have wanted to furnish your house the way THEY wanted, not the way YOU wanted!!

OK, gotta go see to walking the dog. Hope ya'll have a great evening.
Karen

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

Tech - OK, so that's what MOH is. I was spacing.

Karen - the gym is great! We did the machines again today and so far, so good. I was very sore yesterday, but feel better today. I also had bad cramps yesterday and thought, man I am a mess! Thank God for tylenol menstrual relief. We also walked over 2 miles first today. Tomorrow is walking and a little biking.

Tomorrow night is weigh in. I hope I will still have a loss with my increased weight machine work. But we will see. I know I'm doing this right.

Enjoy your day all!

Rabbit

Tech--I like the first one also!!..Don't tell us which one U picked and we can see if we picked the one U liked!!!
Mardi Gras is not the place to be if U don't like crowds!!!!I ride on the float..felt kind of guilty spending about $600 this close to a wedding..but U only live once!!!

Karen--I only give my babies Eukanuba!!It is good for the bladders and makes the coats shiny!!!

Lauren--I laughed about the registry.I registered my chinastone stuff..exactly what I wanted..and then saw the registry online for $200/platter, $85/gravy boat etc etc..I deleted that garbage..just wanted the plates, saucers, bowls and coffee cups!!It is funny how the stores "assume" and put whatever on them!!!
My house is getting really weird..must all of the non necessites are moved..I have no kitchen but my bedroom is exactly the same..Even the attic is empty..We will only have the bedroom to move after the honeymoon soo it should be easy!!
I went to the doctor..U ready for this:
I got a celestone shot(cortisone) and he put me on a cortisone pack(yuck)
I have Nasalcort spray at night..Panmist twice a day, Augmentin twice a day for 30 days, Allegra daily, Valtrex daily for fever blisters, Flonase in the mornings,Pancough at night..etc etc
Refman thinks I am the "snottiest"woman he knows!!!*L*
I need sinus surgery..but too scared to be a patient!!!!

Buffy--perfect way to get in excercise!!!

Well off to do some more packing!!My dad is comming to move my hopeless chest(hehehehe), kitchen hutch and seat box thingee today soo I must empty these places of hidden junk!!!!!

Have a great day all!!
Vicki

Happy Valentine's Day

Went to WW last night and I lost 3.8 lbs. I GOT MY RIBBON . I am so happy . At least something has gone well this week. Sunday night I ran out of gas, Monday started with changing a flat and ended with a pelvic exam, and work has just been one thing after another, so the good news was well GOOD.

RR - Sounds like you had fun, but I'm confused I thought Mardi Gras was the week before Ash Wednesday which isn't for two more weeks :confused:. I don't envy you all those medications.

Karen - K's dog eats Eukanuba, it doesn't seem to help the shedding (of course it's a golden retrevier LOTS of hair)

Rabbit - Glad you like the gym. Sounds like you're having fun. Good luck at WI tomorrow.

Well, gotta get back to work.

Have a great day everyone.

- Tech
