Hi Lori - I too have eaten horribly this past weekend ... and my weigh in was up on Sunday AM but I had a lot of water to drink before I went - so I'm not documenting the gain b/c of that. And I haven't been walking a lick since Thursday ... I'm PMS'y and I'm sure that's why I'm going through this mood and what not. At least I'm recognizing why and today I'm back in the saddle.
I'm actually writing down my food too now! It's all about accountability. Right ?

It sucks that 'after' the fact is when we realize the damage is done. But moving forward is what it takes.

Have a great day! I'm off and gonna hit that treadmill.

D I'm definitely seeing the need for journaling and mindful eating b/c even tho I'm losing now If those skills don't stay incorporated in my WOE It all comes back (I had a crap weekend of eating) the meds I'm on are prego hormones to stop my period and they're making me a dumptruck for food!

Hey ladies!

I'm here to say hello - Tuesdays @ work are crazy for me.:dizzy:

I just finished my Amy's Spinach Lasagne and it was yummy; however I'm STILL HUNGRY !! I finished the day on point(s) - haha - with 3 left over.
I got my 30 in on the dreadmill and will try for a few more minutes tonight.

Kier - Wowwee ! Glad to hear you are on the mend! This is my PMS'y week and my hormones totally go all over the place. Arrrggghhh ...

Lori - I'm here! I'm here! Yesterday was a days worth of running around and errands and shopping; I even managed to go through my son's clothe's to get rid of some. However when I went to organize the drawers & closets, the light bulb had blown out ... who knows HOW long ago ... BOYS!

Back at it! I'll check in later with you all.

Hey girls;

I have been MIA as my mom is still in hospital (had whole hip replaced after fall) and has gone into congestive heart failure. Pretty stressed out about the whole thing. Looks like a long recovery for her. The funny part is she is in a room with two men and one woman. The one woman and man old and crotchety - both tell people to shut up, etc. Then there is the other guy beside her who is a bit younger than them - about 70 - and really nice guy, though talks about his religion a bit much. But he farts all the time. I mean, this guy farts like no tomorrow - and it's both loud and agressive!! YIKES. Of course, no air freshners allowed, so mom is in stinky-****! She also hasn't had a smoke in over a week so she's a total groucho marx!!! OUCH.

Anyway, outside of that, just trying to take it easy so my pregnancy stays OK. I see the OB on Friday this week. Baby has been very active though, and I am feeling Ok - a few contractions, lots of sciatic nerve pain, but that's about it.

Kier - do you mean BCP's? You said prego drugs...so does that mean to help you get pregnant??

Lori - happy you are not pregnant! Sorry to hear about your gain, but it could be water from a bit of crap eating...

Deb - too true - what's that slogan? "no guilt, move on". I always find that the hardest. Even with preg eating, if I crave, let's say, chips...I'll eat chips and then be like "dang,I may as well have that Easter Creme Egg!".

I gained 4 lbs this month (finally gaining) and I want to make sure it doesn't go out of control the last few months here...so I really need to watch the eating!

Speaking of which, I should go get some lunch. It's noon here!

Have a good day ladies!

Belle No Its called Megase I think its a hormone that's released in your body when you are pregnant. . .with the surgery we have to wait 2 years to try to have kids or me and the potential kid could die from malnutrition. I'm sorry about your Mom the hip the heart and the farts! Hopefully she'll be out soon
I've never heard of co-ed hospital rooms.
Lori Thank God you're not Pregnant that would be one too many things to carry on your shoulders! As for the loose skin I don't have much maybe in my arms a bit but I think Had I waited longer and had a higher BMI it would have really been a problem thenagain ask me in 35 pounds.
Deb that lasagna sounsd soo good!!!! i hear you on the lights my husband will see a bulb blown and not fix it unless I ask someone else to do it!
gotta run!

Good Morning Ladies!
I actually worked out this morning I have a table top arm bike and I did my 30 minutes on it which granted i took it easy but thats probably better to start since I haven't exercised in a dogs age. also I got this Yoga for Aches and Pains dvd the couple who "star" in it are hysterical The woman has spiral curls and is very ethereal and the guy is super balding but manages to have a bun in the back of his head. That being said they have a couple good moves on the dvd i awnt to incorporate into my new routine!
Also I found a tiny marble comp book in the desk my arm bikes on so theres my food/exercise journal! BONUS!
I have a doc appt this morning so I better go pry DH out of bed!

01-24-2007, 11:49 AM
Hi ladies,
How is everyone doing today? Belle, how is your mom doing? Oh I was also wondering, when are you due?

Is it too late for me to jump in, I ment to post on Monday, but it was my birthday and then yesterday I had two doctors appointments. I have big exam tonight and I have been trying to study, but I need a break. I have to get a large lump removed from under my breast on Friday. It is nothing to worry about just a few stiches, but I need some advice. What should I do for a bra, the wire would sit right on the incision and I HAVE to go to school on Monday and the stictches won't disolve for 7-10 days. I am also having a birth mark removed aff my hand becaus ethe doctor thinks it "looks dark", but I am not worried about that, it's small.

Lori are you feeling any better? I am sorry to hear that you had a rough week:(

I have done OK, this week as far as eating and exercise. I did splurge on Birthday cake and I went out to eat twice for my birthday, but both days I ordered light and only ate half my plate. Yesterday I was great all day and then last night mu husband bought me some "Ben and Jerry's low-fat frozen yogurt" has any one ever tried "half baked" it's amazing chocolate and vanilla swirl w/ chunks of brownies and chocolate chip cookie dough, mmmm eating2:
I weigh in tomorrow morning and I think I will probably be the same as last week or down a half pound? I did hit the gym everday but Sunday, so that's good right?

Hi Deb and Kier. Deb, I love Amy's lasagna, mmmm. Kier, I am still cracking up just picturing the couple in your yoga video. I need to go get Jackson down for a nap so I will post more later.

Hi Hi!

I'm sneaking in a post at work ... I'm all alone here ... that doesn't happen too often! Whew!

Hi Tanya - OMG - Happy B'day! I'm such a slacker at that ... here @ the office my mate keeps track of everyone's b'days ... it's just not me thing!:hb:
It sounds like you made the best choices possible celebrating your birthday and you deserve to enjoy it! Kudos!
I'm sure the procedure will go well - I would suggest maybe wearing a camisole tank topy type w. bra lining ? I've got a few of those I wear in the summer or w. jammies - I picked them up @ NY&Co and Old Navy; or an exercise type bra top ? Uni-boob ...
I love Ben & Jerry's Frozen Yogurt - Cherry Garcia ... there aren't many types of B&J that I don't like ... too bad they don't have it in smaller sizes where I am.

Kier - in the early AM there are yoga shows on channel 13 and 21 and I swear it's the same lady for the past like 20 years ... and she looks the same! Haha! Yoga is awesome - I tried attending a class 2x a week just for relaxation purposes due to work and school. It helped so much w. my flexibility range and stretching.

Hi Belle & Lori! :cp:

Have a great day girls ... I've got to do some damage control and journal what I ate yesterday. I feel like I can eat a COW today ... ugh and SLEEP! PMS in full force!:moo:

01-24-2007, 02:14 PM
Tanya HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! maybe a wireless bra? I know there are soft ones you can buy at target or maybe a sleeping bra i've seen those in catalogs We'll be thinking and praying for you!
Deb have fun at work I have to redo my food journal for the day too it didn't go anywhre near as i planned!

01-24-2007, 04:08 PM
Thanks for the advice ladies, I don't know why I didn't think of that, I mean those bras, and camisoles. I have a few sports bras, but I am in need of a new one, they are too big. I am right near a Target and an Old navy so I am going to hit both before school tonight. I think I will go bra-less all weekend and just get something for Monday till whenever the stiches disolve and it stops hurting to wear a regular bra. Hopefully not long, I want to work out on Monday, but I don't see that happening? I am so happy to have all of you here for this, it's a small thing but it is nice to know we are all here for eachother for everything, weight loss or whatever else.

01-24-2007, 05:09 PM
Hi guys,
I'm a newbie!! I just started WW Monday. I was wondering, how much weight can I expect to loose in a week? average? I have been sticking to my points and not using my extra 35 weekly points, just my 26 I get a day. I am doing this online (not going to meetings), so I thought y'all might have some advice for me? I would appreciate any I can get!! A friend of mine that I use to work with has given me some recipies and I am getting some from the website. I think she normally looses about 2 a week, but she is much bigger than me, so I didnt know if that would affect it or not. Anyways, I would appreciate any advice from y'all!! Thanks!!

Hi Tara - Good luck to you on your endeavors! You can find the information given to you from your friend very helpful; and of course there's a world of support here on the Internet!
You didn't mention if you are exercising - but that does help w. your loss each week; and of course loosing inches if your not loosing pounds.
Also - keep in mind the 8 healthy tools for living - drinking the H2O, the fruit/veggie servings, etc ... it's all part of balanced living and following a healthy lifestyle.

Hope this helps - I've found that on target - I loose anywhere from 1 1/2 lbs - 3 lbs a week.

Good luck to you and feel free to join us! :wel3fc:

Good morning girls! One day we might have a boy posting here and we'll have to watch things like that. Tee-hee!

Anyhoo - I'm SO going through a range of emotions now ... PMS remember?
So last night I banged out 5 pcs of cheesecake ... oh yeah. COW. So today I am not feeling very proud of myself. Crap.
Not to be a downer ... I'm moving forward w. our Spring Challenge and the goals that I've set for myself! :flow1:

Tanya - I had class last night and it's so good to be/feel so close to being done. Well, with this part of my career! There's still that Internship issue ... haha ! Since I'm home today I might get working on a few of those applications.

Belle - Hope everything is going well! :goodvibes:

Lori - We've got flurries here on LI! But, ah yeah ... I think they've stopped. Tee hee! Hope you're feeling good too!

Kierie - Any exciting plans coming up for the weekend ?

Where are the others! Come out and play! :dance:

Hi Girls,
How is everyone doing today? I am so glad that last night's exam is over, and I think I aced it:carrot: I also just got back from my WW meeting and I am down 1.2lbs yeah!! I am now down 35lbs total and I am thrilled, but I am also really exhausted and wondering how much longer I can do this? I mean, I know that once I reach my goal, I will still have to stay on program for the rest of my life. I know that I will always have to make good eating choices and get regular exercise, but I just want the process of loosing the weight to be over. Am I rushing things, I know they say that if you take it off slow it stays off:?: OK I am going to stop being a whiner and so damn stubborn and just deal w/ it. I am down 35lbs do I should just shut up and be happy, right?

OK so know I just have to get tomorrow's minor surgery overwith, and then I will relax. I am so anxious that I am going to be in too much pain to WO and go to school. I know it's a minor thing, but I am just hoping it heaks quickly. I can't affoed to not work out or no go to school. I have never missed a day of school and now I am determined to get perfect attendance. Deb, what are going to school for?

Tara I usually loose 1-3lbs a week when I stay on program, and I know that it's usually easier to loose big amounts when you have a lot to loose. I lost 5 and 6 lbs a weeks a few times in the begining, and a women in my WW meeting is well over 300lbs and looses 8lbs like it's nothing? My mom is close to lifetime and has lost 20 something pounds and she is know loosing less then a lb a week. It varried a lot, but just stay on program as best you can and keep checking in w/ us to let us know how your doing.:hug:

Hi Belle, kier and Lori, how are you ladies doing?

Hi Tanya

I'm finishing up my MS in Clinical Nutrition; it's been quite a journey. Going from a Business Management degree and profession, I had a lot of science classes to catch up on.
So, I had posted previously that I do have an eating disorder, but I weekly see a RD and have been in treatment for it. For me, this is part of my recovery; and moving forward earning my RD so that I can counsel kids/teen/adolescents/people w. eating disorders. However, w. the Internship I may find an interest in another "area" ... we'll see!

I am finding that my re-newed interest in WW offers me variety, control and accountability. And of course it incorporates a change in lifestyle and eating in a realisitic way. Who knows - maybe I'll go work for WW! The corporate offices aren't very far from me here.

And ... what an awesome loss you had this week! :bravo: WIth your birthday celebrated too! Rock on, girl!

01-25-2007, 05:05 PM
Thanks guys for the help

01-25-2007, 06:26 PM
I see that all the "old gals" are back. I feel left out. I've GOT to do something, so I'm starting WW again tomorrow. I'll post properly then. Can't wait to get back in the swing of things with you ladies! :carrot:

See you more tomorrow!

Well ... it could be worse, right ?

I had a busy morning getting the boy to school, a tire replaced and wheel alignment. Whew! I didn't get my time on the 'mill in this morning; but I will do it tonight when I get home. I've got a bit of a post nasal-y thing going on; I feel a wee bit tired and achy too.

I'll catch up later! If not have a great weekend girls.

I wonder how can something so easy as eating be so difficult sometimes ??? :?:

01-27-2007, 07:24 PM
Hi Ladies,
I had my procedure done yesterday and it wasn't too bad. I can't lie, it hurts more than I thought it would and it took a long time for them to remove it. They said it was bigger then they had expected but the whole area was numb so the onlY really painful part was the local novicane injection OW:eek: I am just glad it's over, but know I can't WO and I feel like I am just sitting around and eating all day. I haven't been bad, I am within my daily points still but I am not being active AT ALL so I feel like I am just gaining pounds by the minute. Does anyone else ever feel like as long as it takes to loose the weight, you could just gain it all back in a day? I mean, I know that's silly but some mornings I wake up and I remember what I ate the night before and think "great, now I have to start all over again, back at the begining.:dizzy: I mean even if I don't loose any lbs this week or even if I gain it's not like I haven't accomplished a lot already, right? OK sorry, I am just bummed being stuck in the house and overthinking everything. I jusr need someone to validate me, is what I am feeling normal? I mean it was just a little lump, but I was waiting for the doctor to say "oh sorry we were wrong, and it is not just a benign cyst" I am just so hormonal and I feel like if I don't get my emotions under control soon, I am going to eat them away or at least attempt to, we all know that won't do anything.

My dh has been wonderful, as usual. He is bathing Jax right now, and he has taken care of him all day. He cooked my dinner:o and brought it to me in bed. He also slept on the couch this morning w/ no blanket because Jax was making alot of noise and he didn't want the baby monitor to wake me so he left me w/ all the blankets and took the monitor into the living room at like 5am!!

Oh also, I have steri-strips on my incision since the sticthes are on the inside, but I soaked threw them and the bandage w/ blood. I know that it's not "supposed" to bleed, but it's ok right? I mean it didn't hurt so I don't think I popped a stitch. They want me to keep the strips on for 7-10days but they are all stained:shrug: OK sorru if this is TMI. I know I should know this from school, but I just know that I am not supposed to take them off, but it will drive me crazy to have them on that long:( Anyone have anything like this done before?
