HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUuuuuu !!!!!




Joyce... hope you have a wonderful birthday !!!
------------------------------------------------
Now for replys

Pat... Our love goes out to you. {{HUGS}}
I cannot even imagine what you have been through.
Feel free to share your feelings with us.

Andria... Hang in there. I wish your workplace was more pleasant for you.

Sandy... I am proud of you for going to bed to avoid eating. With my bad sleeping habits I have not been able to do that too often.
Barbg ... Congratulations !!! NO DESSERTS !!!

Foxfrye... nice to see you again. My heart goes out to you concerning you being a bridesmaid. Have you talked to your friend concerning her plan to have the bridesmaids dance with their mates/dates ??? She obviously knows you are over weight and she doesn't care. Maybe she never thought about the fact you would not have a partner. Talk with her. I totally understand your concern about the whole thing ... but she may be clueless if she is "naturally thin".

Kat... I owe you an apology... I have had POT.... LOTS OF POT !!!!
I have had a POT of beans, a POT of chili, a POT of goolash , even a POT roast .... need I say more??

And I am not alone.... TINA .... she could not get 5 feet away from her POT
Her POTty that is !!!

Okay... gotta go.
Some of you have a PM from me... you might want to check and see.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOYCE

Day 2: It's 8:45 a.m and I am On plan all the way. I have had my yougart and am on my first big bottle of peach flavored water. My orange is on my desk for when I get that pang around 9-9:30. I went to the store this a.m. on my way to work to get a can of soup for lunch, and then I said "duh" you love the potatoe soup that Thin posted, so I got all the stuff to make a big ole' batch of that for my lunches for the rest of the week or just a snack for 1 pt, I can deal with it totally!!! And I love it, cept's I use the sausage flavored gravy to give it a little umph.

I cooked a turkey dinner on Sunday so this am I also picked up the package gravy mix (no fat this way) and some veg all veggies and am gonna make a Turkey Pot Pie for supper. The worst part will be the crust, but I should have plenty of points for it. And it just sounds yummy to me today.

Jeanine: It's okay to come here and vent all you want. We talk about everything here, including daily life. Is it not our daily lives that got us to where we are at? And life comes with the ups and downs and we love to share them all here. So, please feel free to vent all you would like. I do hope that you find a solution to your problem. I know it would mean the world to be in your best friends wedding, I hope that she can make some adjustments to suit you too. I know it's her day, but maybe she has not really thought about how everyone else will be feeling. Just a thought, maybe you could mention it to her. Hugs to you.....

Andria: Good luck with the new boss and hope all goes well. Maybe that man needs someone to tell him where he has to be when. Maybe that someone is you. Maybe you can set things up the way you like them and run it the way you think it should be run. Good luck

Kat: I am assuming you worked the night shift and are in dire need of some good ole' zzzz's to come back and post what ever your 2cents was gonna be. Sweet dreams there chicklet....

Hi Ladies!
Guess who went to the gym this morning??? Yep, that would be me! Feeling pretty good about myself today. The scale looks like it's starting to move a little again and I am feeling better physically and mentally.

I have started tracking everything I eat again - it really helps to see on paper what I am eating. Speaking of --- it's Girls Scout Cookie time again! As we were walking out of the grocery store the other day the sweet little girls were selling cookies and of course we bought some! I didn't touch them until today ---- don't worry, only had 2 and I am logging them. But, have you ever looked at the nutrition on those things??? I had 2 Samoas ---- 150 calories and 8 grams of fat!!!!!!!! Yikes!!! I can remember the days when I could easily eat 1/2 the box without thinking about it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOYCE!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!


I really want to get to replies - you know I like to do them, but I have to get some work done - after all I am suppose to be working right now! During lunch I have to take a shower and go have blood drawn to check my thyroid to see if the meds have adjusted my TSH levels. Tonight is "date night" and we are going to a home owners association meeting - I know, not the most romantic night, but we've lived here for 3 years and haven't been to one yet.

I'll try to catch up later this afternoon.
to all!
Barb

good morning ladies. i am so at my weigh in did not go so well. i blowed my diet one time in one week and i guess the scales could tell. i went up 1 and 1/2 lbs. of course the nutritionist said oh it could be the medicine or since i have begun to exercise it could be that i am turning fat in to muscle, which weighs more i will choose the latter, if i have to, but i still think it was the buffet at the chinese restaurant. just need to pick my self up and start again. i really shouldn't care about what the scales say because i can tell by the size gone in my clothes.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOYCE

Happy Birthday Joyce!

Good afternoon everyone! I am happy to say that I am now 4.5 days OP. No cheating at all. Yesterday I even did 43 minutes on my bike eventhough I was exhausted. I am happy to say that I am really looking forward to weighin on Saturday.

Still working on my DH to let me come to the Spring Fling by car with Thin. 2Cute and Thin have both given me some good reasons to use when I speak with him. *Fingers Crossed*

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hi ladies!

I'm dashing off to work early as I'll be leaving at 1:45. My brother and I are driving 3 hours to a family visitation for my nephew's FIL that passed away on Sunday. He was only 60. My nephew and his wife are building a new house and the FIL was over with them on Saturday helping with something. He just dropped to the floor suddenly. His daughter is a RN so she tried to do CPR while my nephew went to a neighbor who is a DR. They could not revive him. It breaks my heart for her - I know the pain too well from losing a father and how she must feel not being able to save him. I realized today that this is the fifth person we've lost within the extended family in just a little over a year. Our dad was last December, my sister lost her MIL last January, my MIL lost her 2nd husband in April, my uncle in August and now this. I probably won't post again until late tomorrow or Friday. We'll be on the road for at least 6 hours and a busy day at work tomorrow.

Duckie and Pat - A big {{{hug}}}} for your losses. My heart is with both of you.

Barb.G - Sorry to hear about the study. That is ridiculous. But good job of rebounding with exercise.

2Cute - I'm so proud of you for getting your focus back. So what's your intentional exercise for today? Even if its 15 minutes.

Welcome to all the new folks that I haven't properly welcomed. And its great to see some oldsters coming back too! I have to run now. Have a great day! And make it a rockin' OP day!

Hi everyone! I'm going to try once again to catch up. I really hated that I lost that one really long post and I've felt the need to go back and re-create some of it and just haven't had the time. I will try once again.

I continue to struggle with the eatting issues, getting better every day. Ever since my lunch with Susie on Monday I have sworn off my latest addiction, which is Tim Horton's cafe mochas and apple fritters. I have not had any since last Friday and swore off them on Monday altogether. It's funny because I really only had that one morning (Monday) where I had to have nasty conversations with myself about it, since then, I haven't even considered stopping there. Now my question is: If I can be so committed about giving up that EVIL habit, why can't I give up some of the others?

I was proactive last night and made a batch of the pistachio fluff (see recipe page) and portioned it out so that it's quick to grab when I need a sweet 'fix'. Syn's Chai Tea has been a wonderful comfort (I use Splenda instead of the sugar to make it more 'point' friendly). I've been making a cup at least once a day (at night) and sometimes more. Even went out and bought myself a cute little teapot (it's "short and stout" just like me ).

I'm having a hard time remembering what I've really said in a post that actually made it to the thread and the responses I wrote in the post I lost. So if you've read any of this before, just deal with it, ok?

The "baby" loves his new car. He bought a Subaru WRX. Took that to Buffalo, NY this past weekend and had a wonderful time. He was off work and school on Monday for Martin Luther King's birthday so he drove back on Monday instead of Sunday night. Said he didn't have any weather to deal with so that's good.

Joyce: Happy Birthday, to you!
Happy Birthday, to you!
Happy Birthday, dear Joyce!
Happy Birthday, to you! and many more.....
I was so sorry to read about your little episode the other day. I hope that you will be able to figure out just exactly what's going on with you and be on the way to fixing it real soon. [[[hugs]]] * Just a note: I find that it is less time-consuming to open a second window (one for the thread I'm trying to respond to and one for my reply window) than to try and take notes and respond from them. Less writing, less time. Just a thought.

Katrina: Sorry the post stealing fairy got to you too! I'm glad to hear your dad is improving. I loved the story of you going to Walmart to buy all the "poop inducing agents". My mother's elderly neighbor can go out and get all her own groceries and medications and such, but she calls my mom and asks her if she can go buy Poise pads, etc. from the drug store for her and feigns that she's "not able to go out today." What a hoot!

2cute: It's so good to 'hear' you sounding so much better and enthusiastic once again. I know this comment is really late but, yes, it's amazing how many posts there have been, isn't it. My gosh. Can't hardly believe we've been here almost 4 years!

Michelle: I added your Honey Mustard Dressing recipe to our recipe page so that it wouldn't get lost here in the shuffle. I will have to make some up. Honey loves Honey Mustard Dressing and that is certainly 'point' friendly. * To answer your question: We're about 4.5 hours from Niagara Falls, Ontario and about 5 hours from Buffalo.

Jen: "Progress, not perfection right?" That's EXACTLY right! We have to focus and do the best we can; day by day, meal by meal and minute by minute if necessary.

Lucky: I'm with you. I like the Black Cherry Walmart water best too. White Grape and Blackberry Apple are my second favorites. Those three must be everyone's favorites because my Walmarts are always low or out of those 3 flavors.

Barb: Glad you're home safe and that your dad is improving as well. * "I am so sick of being sick and tired! " Boy, do I know that feeling. Sunday was the first day since the Sunday before Christmas that I didn't wake up with a sore throat. Hope you feel better soon.

Mary: Glad your seminar was fun. They're always tiring. All conventions make for a long day. * I was at chat, but not until about 9:30 so everyone was gone by then.

Andria: So sorry to hear about your knee. Hope by now that it is feeling some better. * I didn't get here quick enough to wish you luck on your work troubles. It sounds like you worked it out. Too bad they had to make such an awful situation for themselves and then you had to be the one to contemplate so much grief about it. [[[hugs]]]

Pat/paperdoll: I'm so sorry to hear that you have lost a child. I just cannot imagaine the pain. [[[hugs]]] Congrats on the 2 pounds gone! Good for you!

Terri: I'm with you. The scale isn't as important as the inches. I would happily be 300 pounds and skinny, than 300 pounds and flabby like I am now! Gee, I'm back proof-reading and thought, what a silly thing to say. Can 300 pounds ever be considered 'skinny'????

JoeAnne: Great job on all the exercise! Keep up the good work! How's the rest of your life going? Are all the kids doing well? Are you in class this term? I forgot.

Barbg/ageoldie: I was so hoping that you would get a call saying they would accept you anyway in that study. Sorry that doesn't seem to be happening.

Jiffypop: Thanks for peeking in over here. I know you're pretty busy elsewhere on the site, but it's good to see you over here. Stop by anytime.

Tracy: Aren't you a sweetie. I just wish my REAL life was as organized.

Carol/Carrotstyx: Sounds like your life is really going to be hopping. Doing Tax Preparation at this time of year usually keeps people pretty busy.

Audrey/Chequitagirl: Isn't it nice when someone actually notices your accomplishment? Honey found a "before" picture of mine the other day. It was crumpled and wrinkled (the picture, not me! ) and when he handed it to me, he said "boy, there's really been a change in you." That was really nice, since my weightloss has been pretty much just maintaining for quite some time. I think it's kinda like kids, grandparents who don't see your kids everyday, really notice that they've grown, whereas we don't notice so much because they're in our house. Well, I don't think honey remembers just exactly how big I 'used' to be. I'm still big, don't get me wrong, but it was kinda nice that he was reminded that I really have done something in the weightloss arena since I began even though, of late, I've not been really trying. Boy did I get off on a tangent. Sorry. Just really wanted to say "great job". * If you had that Chineese buffet the day before or even two days before your WI, you can count on it skewing the numbers!!! Way too much sodium for just before a WI. My favorite snack type item is WOW potato chips. But I'll never have them on Sunday night before my Monday morning WI.

Tina: Oh honey, you are the only one on the planet that can tell a funny story about being sooooo sick! Bless you, sweetie! [[[hugs]]] Hope you're feeling better by now. * Is that stir fry from Costco? Sounds like the big bag I get from there. I'll buy the Lean Cuisine or Create a Meal bags and then add a bunch of the stir fry veggies from the Costco bag to make them go farther. It's really great and the veggies add alot of volume, but not alot of extra points.

Joanne/homebound: Good to see you! Getting rid of all the RED light foods is always a start. The real key is to not be tempted to buy anymore the next time we go to the store.

Sandy: That scrapbooking party sounds like alot of fun, expensive, but fun. I just don't have the extra money to put into something like that. Most of the crafting I do/did, I've really jumped into, spent alot of bucks and then have it stuffed in a cabinet downstairs. I just went through it before Christmas (at honey's insistance) and donated it all to the nuns at the convent my Aunt was at. They loved it, but it's still a whole bunch of money that would have been better off spent on something else or still in my pocket. * I know you asked Tina, but just in case she didn't get back to you yet, here's the
Flexpoint info:
Less than 150 = 20
150-174 = 22
175-199 = 24
200-224 = 26
225-249 = 28
250-274 = 30
275-299 = 31
300-324 = 32
325-349 = 33
350 or more = 34
Then you also have an addition 35 Flexpoints that you can add no matter what your weight is.
Also: Check out the recipe thread, I just posted my Chicken Pot Pie recipe that can easily use turkey instead of chicken. It's very good and LOW WW points.

Duckie: Sweetie, how the heck are ya??? Good to see you. That was certainly the trip of a lifetime and a few pounds are a few pounds. Now that you're home, you'll get right back with it, and it sounds like you already have. 4 pounds down is GREAT! Hope you'll post some pics of your trip. BTW, if you could post that pic of you and your son again, it would be great. All of the pics were lost in the crash here, so if you'd like to share again, please do. * I'm so sorry about the funeral. It's very special of you to be there for your sister. My prayers are with you all and the family. * I don't have a Gazelle, but I have an AirWalker (similar). I like it, when I use it. Guess that pretty much tells the story, doesn't it???

Amanda: Glad to have you "home". Nice that you had such a great trip. Sounds like your mom kept you going! Hope you're rested soon and pop in with more details.

Syn: You better "duck and run". Silly girl! Don't let your depression make you hide from us. Force yourself, if you have to, to get out and beat that thing!!!!

Jeanine: Oh honey. I'm sorry you have this stress in your life. I guess I'm with whoever said to talk to your friend (the bride). The reason I say this is because I think sometimes we think all this stuff is obvious, but others just don't get it if it doesn't involve them directly. For instance, I used to drive my mom and my aunt downtown to the casino periodically in my van. My mom couldn't understand why I didn't want to go on the bus trips because you only paid $5 and then got a $15 voucher for lunch so basically you got your money back PLUS a free lunch. Well, finally after her asking me several times to do the bus and me saying "no, that's ok, I'd rather drive" I took her aside and told her I didn't want to do the bus because I wouldn't fit in the seats. She was just totally taken off track. Now when we go to a restaurant, she's more aware of chairs with arms, etc. It's not that she ever wanted me to be embarassed, it's just that she never really had a clue. Maybe this is the case with your friend. She loves you for who you are, not the size you are. She probably sees the REAL you, not the body you happen to be in. It's probably never dawned on her, that you might not be comfortable, that a dress might have to be altered, that you wouldn't have someone to ask to the party. Talk to her. Just be sincere and talk to her. I would hate for you to miss being a part of your friend's big day. [[[hugs]]]

Susie: Good for you being OP. You go girlfriend! *I'm waiting anxiously to hear that you've convinced that man of yours to do things YOUR way! Would the 4 of us going out to dinner help??? Maybe it would be good for him to know I'm not a wacko? Oh, ummmm, on second thought, maybe we SHOULDN'T have dinner!

Well, girls, I have done my absolute best at responding to everyone. If I missed you, it was certainly NOT intentional. I love you all bunches. And now if I don't lose this 4 page post, I will be ever so happy!

Oh, BTW, What do you think of a thread for product recommendations? Just a thought, or would that be getting too carried away with threads to sift through. I just kept thinking that I have found a bunch of store bought cookies that are really awsome and would be a great alternative to whoever mention the Girl Scouts evil cookies!! Anyway, just a thought. See ya later.

thanks thin for the advice on the sodium. i am definately back on track this afternoon. hey fast food is even getting healthier. taco bell is joining the crowd. they now have "fresco" style it replaces the cheese and sauce on any of their items with a tomatoe, onion, cilantro, lettuce and maybe a hint of lime juice. it is so good and not very fatting if you have the steak taco. just a flour tortilla, steak and the veg. if you like mexican food try it.

Just a quicky,
Thin: I saw you posted the chix recipe (thanks) But I ended up using the crust I bought and it was 6 points to do top and bottom...but I had plenty of points for supper and still have some left for a snack before 7o that will be my cut off tonight.
I will however use that chix recipe in the future...it sounds yummy.

I got a call at work today from the school nurse, I had to go get Evan, another boy had tripped him when he was running on the playground and they thought he may have broken his wrist. Thank goodness he did not. The doctor said it is badly sprained
and tomorrow he may wish it was broke instead of sprained. He may have torn ligaments or cartalidge, but it has to heal itself. Then I had to rush back to school to get Alexis for Ballet, which my mother in law is supposed to be transporting for that, but that is a whole nother story...finally got home, cooked supper, make this friendship bread stuff I had to bake off, now I am here gonna copy the recipe for the soup and off to make that....

Hugs to all,

Hi all! Back again, and then I think I'm going to go to bed....EARLY!

Audrey: I love Taco Bell. Haven't seen the new stuff, probably because I'm trying to avoid the place like the plague. That was my addiction after the PB cups and before the Tim Horton's. I'll have to give it a whirl. * Couldn't find the stats on any new stuff at Taco Bell, but a regular hard shell taco is only 3.5 WW points. Of course, who can eat just one??? Not I!

Sandy: Your post reminded me of that Chicken Pot Pie recipe and after posting it, I thought that would be a great idea for dinner. Went to the cupboard, had all the ingredients....except for the Bisquick! Argh!!!! I ended up making a pan of Rice A Roni and added green beans, corn and peas as well as a can of Chicken Breast and it was actually pretty tasty. Made a nice salad and then baked a cake like Mary's Apple Spice cake, except I used yellow cake mix and lite cherry pie filling. It turned out very good as well.

Guess I'll be gone for tonight. You all take care. Nitey night.

Talking Thank You!!

My you chicks really know how to make one feeel special! What a birthday! I love the little eyes in the layers of the bday cakes!

I had a good visit to the cardiologist this afternooon. he says there is no sign of a heart attack in my ekg's and that the filbrillation is not that uncommon, could be as simple as too much caffeinne. No more Diet Pepsi for me, after I finish tapering off with what I have on hand. He gave me a cupla meds that should help me and I will be fine.

To top off this lovely bday, we went to Olive Garden with friends. I had lots of salad and some Lobster spaghetti. YUM!

ThinThanks for the hugs and the suggestion on opening 2 windows, i will have to figure that out. I'm sure I've done it before.

peekabooI hope Evan is not in too much pain! how old is he?

Guess i better get to bed, I have no excuse to be a couch potato tomorrow! back to packing!
Thanks again for al the wishes!

JOYce

Default Start Day 3

Good morning my dear friends. Today is day 3, yahoooooooo....yesterday was a bit of a stressful day with Evan and the running around and all I had to do still, but I did not stress eat!!! This is a good thing for me, I am thinking of it as a small accomplishment. I was in the store with Evan after the doctors to get his tylenol and I was starved, and I could have easily picked up something with a zillion calories and fat in it, but I picked us (me and Evan) up a bag of the "WOW" chips....1 pt per serving and there is 5 servings in the bag, so you can't do to much damage if you eat the whole bag, which I have been known to do on occasion with other chips . Then I picked up a cucumber, yup thats right, I picked up a cuke and ate that too, it was nice and crunchy and if you eat a whole cucumber it sure takes a bit to do .

I made my potatoe soup and the test taste was oh so yummy , I can't wait for lunch. And you can have oh so much of it. Supper will be left over Turkey pot pie, because I have girl scouts with Alexis tonight.

Thin: your chicken mixture sounds yummy also. Funny how a lot of recipes are interchangable. You go to the cupboard can't find one thing and say well I will use this instead and the recipe turns out yummy.

Joyce: Thanks for your concern about Evan. He is 11 almost 12. This morning I woke up to what sounded like a ghost wailing....it was Evan, his wrist was really hurting. I gave him some tylenol and he seems to be doing a little better. This is a child who hates school anyways, so you can imagine....this is a great out for him. Yesterday he said he still wanted to go to school today, but today he is like It hurst so so bad...

2Cute: I'm sorry you can not sleep. Does the doctor know how bad your insomnia is? Do you take sleeping pills for it at all? I don't know what I would do if I could not go to bed. I mean 10 o'clock here is way past bed time for me usually. By 8:30 or so I am yawning to beat all. My thoughts are with you, and hope you got some sleep.

Guess I should go jump in the shower and get ready for work now, I have to still get Alexis moving this morning or she will lay in bed all day. Oh to be 6 again.

Hugs to all,
