Hello all,

Didn't do so good over valentines weekend. Daughter gave me a rose and a box of toffee ~ I wish I had thought and given back the toffee ~ kicking myself. Then had some brownies and son's girlfriend baked a heart shaped cake and brought to us. I do not resist temptation very well. Their hearts were in the right place.

Always some stressful thing going on or something causing worries. Last week ~ Corbin not wanting to go to school ~ kids picking on him ~ worryied about that. This week, son Jason feeling bummed ~ feels that he has gotten himself into yet another relationship that isn't turning out well. He wants so badly to find someone who he can settle down with. I just want him to be happy. Makes my heart ache to see him looking so miserable. Heard today that a lump was found in my brother's jaw when he had an MRI to check his head after an auto accident. Mom has recently been started on an alzheimers medication.

On the up side ~ Corbin is here visiting ~ that brings me a smile. Got to hug on Maddie a little yesterday. Mommy had fixed her hair in little pigtails ~ she doesn't have much hair ~ so they stick straight out like a little paint brush bristle ~ but it looks cute. I will get a picture on here.

Well, I'd better quit fooling around on here ~ time to do some more getting ready for work.

Take care

I relate. I wanted to break the 170 mark by the end of FEb but that is not going to happen. I have to try to remember to live every day and really get into it and not base my whole life on the scale or what I achieve with wt or dont'

Hi Everyone,

My SIL is having shoulder surgery today. I'm staying close to home in case my DD needs help. I believe they are sending him home immediately after the surgery - probably an insurance thing.

Check back later,

Lynn

Hi Ladies, I was surprised to see so many faces that I know are still here.

I am still working on my weight and making some progress since I first started at 3fc a couple years ago, many ups and downs but finally slow progress.

Think I am finally use to living in Ohio, spent some time in Florida in Jan. helped to see my son down there again and our friends...this does seem like home here now. Cold but home.

I am on a low protein & sodiumn food plan with a dietitian so hopefully lose some more pounds soon.

Have a new puppy, 12 wks. old...weighs 4 lbs. and full of energy and love...what a joy she is.

Phyllis

Hi everyone:

Looks like we all survived Valentine's Day!

We had a family dinner at my niece's for V-Day which was better for us than going out to dinner, and more fun. Turkey with all the fixings, and I was a good girl and ate the protein, avoided most of the gravy and starch, and skipped dessert. <g> Luckily I love turkey and it's no hardship to chow down on it.

Our local 'Biggest Loser' club had its weekly weigh-in last night, and I am down six and a half pounds. It's been a month, and I had hoped I'd be down at least by ten pounds after this long, but I'm not going to complain! At least I continue to lose, even though it's slow going.

I started using a stabilizer ball and find I really like it. It's got about a pound of sand in it which helps weight it down so that it doesn't roll away, making the balancing exercises easier. I am also doing 'Walk Away the Pounds' three times a week. Can't wait until all of the snow melts and I can get out there and walk for real. We live a mile and a half from town and walking to town and back is a great little trek, since we live on the hill and that walk back up to the farmhouse is a killer.

Hang in there! February is almost over and spring is right around the corner!

Default Post moved over from the January thread

Hi all:

Bobbi asked me to move a post over, you will find it below:

Also, not doing much exercising at all but boy do I feel empty in the mornings when I get up but the scale is just so stubborn. I am going to have to do something different if I don't start getting some results by tomorrow because there is no way I can keep this two salads deal a day up and not loose an ounce day after day after day."

Below is my response:

"grabec, it doesn't sound as if you're eating enough to keep your metabolism up. Your body might think you're trying to starve it, and it will respond by storing all it can. If you are only eating two salads a day then you're not giving yourself enough for your metabolism to work with.

I found out the hard way that you have to eat to lose. Small meals, every two to three hours, will net you better and faster results. That morning frap you are drinking should not be making a difference at all. I have a large cup of coffee every morning with sugar-free Torani syrup and vanilla creamer (also sugar free) and that doesn't seem to affect me. I also eat salad at least once a day, sometimes for lunch and dinner, but I also eat a lot of fruit and I drink a gallon of water a day. And I force myself to eat protein once a day even though I am not big on meat and fish. It's the small, frequent meals that work for me.

I'm 54 and I know it will be tougher for me to lose weight because of my age, menopause, etc. But it is coming off, albeit slowly. I bet yours will, too. Don't lose heart, and do eat. I really think the frequent small meals will help you."

Good Morning Girls!
What a beautiful winter wonderland outside my window, it's snowing really hard and all our spruce trees are laden with snow. I should take a picture and use for 2009 Christmas cards.
6.5 pound down, good job farmgal.
Nice to hear from you fluffy, where have you been?
Phyllis......Hi again! You've been absent for a long time, I'd forgotten that you moved.
You'll have to change your name to Oh-Hi-Rusty
Isabella...I checked out the calorie challenge. I really need a shorter one since I only have a couple of pounds to lose. If I don't find one or start one on my own, I'll join your's March 1st. Thanks for the invite.
Lynn...how's your friend doing after surgery?
Glynne...Join the club, that's why we are members of the 3FC.

Meowee...are you out of the dumps yet? Would you please close the January thread, I don't know how to do that.
We had a whole roasted chicken Monday, ate left-overs last night and today I'm making chicken soup with left-over chicken and bones. I better get my day started, have a good one.

Lynn...Hope SIL did okay!

Phyllis...OMG girl I missed waving to you on Rt95! Glad you're back!

Farmgirl....Good advice!

Just missing YoYo and Karen........New job New house??????????????

Good Morning,

My son-in-law's shoulder surgery was a LOT more than we expected. He was in surgery for over 3 hours & they kept him in the hospital overnight. Most likely, he will be coming home today. I stopped by this morning with coffee for him and my DD - he was in a LOT of pain.

Check back later,

Lynn

Morning everybody.
My good friends are doing well, one with her scary heart racing<---ablation and meds seem to be working, and the other with her surgery for her abdominal mass<---not cancer thank the Lord.
My kids are driving me nuts....just struggling over school work etc. the usual high school kid stuff. You'd think I'd be used to it as these are number 3 and 4.
Doing well on my WOE....weight coming off but very slowly.
Ordered some used cook books for the low carb WOE that I'm doing....first one looks really good!
Hang in there everybody! Spring is coming!
