Happy belated birthday wana! It sounds like such a lovely time. Life is so short and precious. It is hard when we want to enjoy it and others are so busy doing whatever it is that they think is so important.
Stephanie you are so cute!!!
Katt love your jammie picture and you look awesome in your dress!
I am going to have to find a before picture because the scale messes with my little mind!
I just want to add I love reading about Wana B-Day and Katts daily life! I really find how others spend their days interesting.

Great job everyone! And thanks for sharing your stories and pictures!
Sue, so sorry your friends didn't appreciate your wonderful-ness, but glad that you still had a fantastic birthday with your walking friend! Your margaritas sounded so good! I might just have that for my birthday next month instead of the usual. I can't promise that I will stop at 2 though...

Things are going great on the health front for me these last couple of weeks and I am so thrilled that the scale is finally moving in the right direction. My official day for this challenge is Thursday so hopefully I'll still have good news to report. I did have horrible heartburn this morning after I walked 5 miles and (TMI ALERT), am a little backed up so had something not exactly on plan, but at least it was sugar free. Hopefully it won't affect my weight loss...

Have a great week everyone!

Okee ... sorry been AWOL .. will catch up first

WANNA - Wow .. great start hun .. I can tell you whooshing isn't on holiday

WATCH - Even with TOM as a visitor you had a great loss .. not a common thing (with me anyway lol) .. so great going

SILENT - Im a little confused by your weigh in .. but Im happy to see you here and posting and hope you are warming up where you are now?

WANNA - Apologies for not posting a big HB to you on time ... Im one of those awful people that doesn't forget ... I just don't remember at the right time ... its usually I remember a week before and think "Oh, Kates birthday is next week I need to remember to give her a ring" then before I know it 2 weeks have passed and I remembered that I forgot the darn thing! Mind you I tend to avoid my own birthday cos its rarely a good experience for me. But I am glad it ended up being a lovely time for you .. not sure about the Margaritas .. i think I would be more a few shots of tequila lol .. or sambucca And it sounded like the perfect day for you too Hugs

UBEE - I want to add that I love seeing you on the boards ... you keep me thinking and Im usually smiling when I read your words

EASILY - Glad your health is getting back on track and you are feeling so positive And Im sure the odd off plan moment won't affect what you are doing too much .. remember its got to be a life plan and something you will be happy to stick to or play with for life to keep you where you want to be ... so cutting things out that you enjoy is definitely not something you should do otherwise it will just keep calling to you and you will overdo lol



So how is everyone doing today? Sorry I have been away but got a bit busy at work and home so not online much. Was going to be spending today at home but had a surprise instead, my daughter and grandkids came down for the day so we went out to the beach for a coffee and a nice walk along it .. then we went to the mall and had a Frozen Yoghurt at a new place that had just opened up there .. so lovely I got some clothes for the kids and a few little cars for my grandson and a baby in a pram for my granddaughter ... plus some CDs for my daughter for when she drives .. oh and a few DVDs for the kids to watch this winter ... don't often get the chance to treat them and I missed my lil mans birthday at the beginning of last month so this was a belated nice day ... then we came back to my place and got out of the cold weather (which had started) for a few hours colouring in and playing with the toys and cuddling .. so lovely day

Just had dinner which was a lovely meal made by my hunny ... my first little bit of steak in months (cos Im not really into eating red meat) with a heap of vegetables ... but with TOM I have been a little run down so hunny thought a little bit of lean steak would be a good thing ... Lets just say I loved the vegetables .. and the dogs got a nice treat after I ate enough of it lol ..

Back to work tomorrow .. then Friday I need to get baking for work on Saturday cos its a grand opening for the new name and ownership of the outlet mall that I help out in .. so Im going to make some Lemon & Coconut cupcakes ... and maybe some pancake muffins ... or some chocolate cupcakes .. will decide on the day lol .. then they go to work with me on Saturday for the Mothers Day shoppers

Don't know what my weight will be this week .. Ive been all over the place so will be happy with a pound down if anything ... especially with TOM around

Thank you Ubee! I too love reading of people's lives and their interesting things they do and say (and feel inside! )

Thank you Dogpal, NightKatt and Easily for the wishes ... Finishing up the Birthday finally - tonight with my Parents (now its present time! and PIZZA time.. 1st time in a year for a real pizza and I choose - Chicago THIN style!.. ) that is why I am not weighing in until Sunday! OH don't you know it! LOL But then its BACK TO WORK tomorrow... This 160 lbs I am in the middle of losing... well.. it is not as fast I had hoped.. but then... I am not perfect and that is okay. I still am way lighter than I was this time last year and more than 1/2 to my goal ! and that is the best Birthday present ever!

WANNA - Sounds like a wonderful way to spend your birthday week for sure And while it may not be as fast as you would prefer .. keep in mind it didn't take a year to put the weight on .. it won't take a year to get it off .. and the slower the better in the long run as it then has a better chance of it staying off (not to mention giving your body the chance to adjust at a steady rate rather than a roller coaster flash flood of whoosh lol )

Morning off for me ... but might go and visit a friend before work .. have to make my hunnys lunch and drop it off on my way ... then a quick stop at the supermarket on the way home (need coconut & lemon ... and whatever I decide is going to be the other cupcake whatever I need for that one lol)

Have a good day all!

Katt - Not sure whats confusing I gained weight, so I am negative three pounds away from my goal , which means I need to lose 28 to get to my goal it doesn't CHANGE my goal its simplse math... the amoutn of weight I have LOST is negative

294-297 = negative 3.

If I had lost weight the number would be positive....

Silent thanks for explaining that! My little brain could not figure it out either.
Wana how did your pizza taste? I hate it becaue some things taste better and some are like yuck after you take a break from them.
Katt that was quite the splurge with your family. Do they were grandma spoils me t-shirts? Glad you all had such a good time!
Easily Amused so happy you are seeing a positive change in your health and scale!!!
I am really noticing the change in my attitude when I can get outside and walk. This past winter traumatized me. My latest trick is I walk to the other end of town (1 mile) and buy a lottery ticket. It motivates me to walk because "What if today is my lucky day!" It is only a dollar and I am so worth a dollar a day. Besides, WHAT IF I WIN! Whatever it takes...

Thanks Ubee. I am totally with you on the walking. I got a fitness monitor for Christmas and by March I was walking 10K+ steps per day. I haven't missed a day since and if I can't get outside, I walk around my house. It is so addictive and makes me feel so much better even when the scale isn't being friendly.
I hope your lucky day comes soon!!!

Hi everyone! I have been reading, but waiting until today to check-in. I'm down 2 lbs. this week. I've got a rough couple of weeks coming up because my husband & I are having a small wedding ceremony (for our family here in the US to see as we were married in New Zealand) next weekend. So there will be lots of treats and eating out while we have people visiting from out of town. But I will stick to my plan and not over-indulge.

So I have been very busy (and STRESSED) getting ready for that.

Watchoutforthatcar: Congrats on your loss!
Ubee: Glad you decided to join and thank you for your sweet comment.
wannaskipandlaugh: Happy (belated) Birthday! I am so glad you had such a fabulous time with a new friend to share it with you.
Easily Amused: Congrats on your loss! That's great. Totally jealous of your fitness monitor - I have been wanting to buy one and may have to budget for it soon.
Nightkatt: Hope you had a great morning off and a lovely visit with your friend. How are things going?
silentartic: Glad to see you here! Hopefully next week will hold a big loss for you.
Ali06: Hi and welcome!

Hope everyone has a fantastic week. Keep up the GREAT work.

Hi everyone .. I no longer know what day it is lol .. My Thursday morning was quite nice catching up around the house, didnt end up having time to go visit my friend in her crystal shop cos I had to pick up and drop off some things with work too .. was busy at work in the afternoon ... then I was up late reading and thinking thats ok ... I have tomorrow (Friday) off so will be able to nap if I get tired ... NOPE! Instead on Friday (after going to sleep at 1am) I got up just after 6am and started my day .. had breakfast and then saw my hubby off to work then started on the baking ... 3 dozen cupcakes later and another dozen baking I get a phone call from work to ask me to come in lol .. sure! So finished that batch, turned everything off and went in to work .. got home about 6pm, helped cooked dinner, iced the cupcakes, packed them up, then finally relaxed before heading off to work today yet again in my PJs .. but it ended nicely with dinner out with friends

Oh and the cupcakes all went to work to give away to our customers .. I still have just over a dozen left to give away tomorrow .. but hunny is hoping that I will bring a few of the Lemon/Coconut ones home lol ... (the other ones were Chocolate/Peanut)

So weigh in ... well I didnt recover completely from end of the last challenge .. but closer And the doc is happier with me losing between .5-1 pound
