This thread is for all you ladies who saw your reflection one day and thought
"IS THAT ME?" :yikes: Are you ready to recognize yourself again?:cp:
Well, its a new month so lets start fresh.:carrot:

We welcome all new people and your ideas along with our old friends who have been with us on our previous thread.:grouphug:

We are here to encourage,:club: (just kidding) encourage,:hug: laugh, :D motivate:cheer2: and most of all begin to "recognize ourselves again!":belly:

I'm Kiwi, and my goal is to get down to 128 by my birthday Oct 24, 2007. :goodscale After searching for many years for the "magic pill" :dz: I finally decided to join WW in Jan. I'm actually enjoying it very much.:high:

Starting May 1st we will begin our "Biggest Loser Challenge":goodvibes and it will end May 31. Hope everyone is up for it! Everyone who is wanting to participate must weigh in and give your starting weight.

Suz,fill in the rest if I forgot anything! I will try to make a link from the old thread to this one.:wave:

Good Morning everyone :grouphug:

Whew it is May 1st and we have a new challenge....:cp: I have been challenging myself since October and have managed to drop 53 lbs. I think it is :D and I know we can all reach our goal weights together! :yes:

I have 14lbs to go to get to my new goal weight at 150lbs! :encore:

So my goal for May is to shed at least 5-6 of those lbs. before June 1. I also need to start toning, :lifter: so I will need to add that to my daily activities :barf: Those are my self challenges!

Kiwi...I do have a myspace account...I am sure if I dust off the cobwebs from that account it is still usable :dunno: but what do I send you? :shrug: my user name or my email? I am not a myspacer....Just never really had the time to play around with all they have to offer.....:dunno:

OK everyone....lets hear :listen: your goals for May?????

:blah: NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS!!! :blah:

Good Morning:wave:

My weight is officially 177.8 So lets say 178. :( My goal for May is to get those remaining 7.8 pounds off that I gained from the cruise plus lose another 5 pounds. That's 13 pounds!! :yikes: That seems like alot but I'm still counting on those pounds from the ship can still be easily taken off now that I'm back on track. :cp: We'll see. So that means my goal by June 1 is to be 165!! Wahoo!!:woohoo:

Danni since you have a myspace all you do is go to MY myspace and
click on "Friend request" (Its a box under my picture) and it will
tell you want to do. :comp: Then go to "message" and tell me who you are so that I can accept your "Friend request":hug:

Hope everyone is doing well and is up for the May challenge. :sumo: If I get all that weight off I know I will be the "Biggest Loser" :goodscale Don't worry Danni you're still the biggest loser in my book!!:rofl:
Oh that was so ugly even for me!!:devil: :joker:

Have a great day!

Hi everyone,

I started writing this morning about 9:00 and then stopped 'cause someone dropped in and I'm just not getting back.

Hope everyone had a great day yesterday and a better one today. I just finished eating a WW broccoli and potato meal. Boy I love their dinners.

I haven't gotten any water in and I think I will pick that up again. Danni can't wait to see your pictures! Why doesn't everyone else get a myspace? That way we can see pictures of each as we are progressing along our way. Lets see I have one and so does Danni, Momtu2, tigger, mssindy, Its really nice actually seeing these women's progress along the way. It doesn't cost anything and you can set it so no one can view or post except who you want. Something to think about.


Chat at you later.

Hi Ladies! I know it's May 3rd, but I'd like to join this thread and "Loser Challenge"!

I was 134.5 on May 1st. At the end of May I hope to be 129.5 to 128. I don't want to settle for anything less than that. I just found out (horrifyingly) that my cousin is coming to visit for a month. While I love him and am glad he's coming I KNOW that also means lots of dinners out, sedateness, and generally fancy living for May. That TERRIFIES me. Therefore, this is a generally small goal, but I KNOW it's going to be a struggle.

Good luck everyone! :moo: [That cow is just too cute!]

Good Morning everyone :grouphug:

:welcome: Seagreenwater!!! I hope you meet your may goal! And we are here to support you on your way! :yes: dining out does not have to be stressful for you while your cousin is in town:hun: ya just have to learn how to make healthy choices while you are out ;) I know you know that, however over the next month we will help drive it home :frypan: that you can and will make healthy choices when you go out to eat with your cousin. :D So again welcome and please jump in with both feet!

Kiwi, I did not get to myspace last night :shrug: it was a 2 hour :yes: Grey's Anatomy last night and my son's bedtime is 10 :rolleyes: so when I had time he did not and when he did I did not, so we are gonna try for tonight :yes:

Ok everyone :coach: NO CHEATING today! YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!! If you continue to do what you have ALWAYS done you will contine to get what you ALWAYS have gotten! :blah: :blah: :blah: but oh soo true!

Drink your water at least 8 8oz glasses a day!!!!!!!

Danni :cheers:

Welcome Seagreenwaters!:welcome2: I am so confused. :dizzy: I actually, wrote a small post last night welcoming Seagreen but now I don't see it? :mag: Very confusing anyway, Seagreenwaters what's with the name? :^: The reason I ask is I live in Florida and love the waters here:swim: and it sounds like by your name you may love the waters where you are at. Anyway we are so glad you are with us :hug: I'm sure you will do just find while your cousin is here and if not we will be here to encourage you!:club: :joker:

Danni_Marie/Kiwi24--Thanks for the welcome! I appreciate the warmth on this website. It's my first "weight loss support group" and I joined because I found it better to feel part of something larger than on my own with my 10 pounds to lose (actually, it's 11...and truly I'd like to lose 5 more than that, but keeping the goals small for now).

Kiwi24-- I'm a San Francisco girl born and raised (well San Francisco born, Bay Area raised). I LOVE the water here. When I moved around a bit the last two years people could not understand my sadness or the slight depression I went through from not seeing the ocean on a daily basis, or knowing I CAN see the ocean on a daily basis. I'm betting you can understand this. San Francisco water is cold (read: unbearable at times), but the entire coast line is absolutely majestic.


Still at 133. Hoping some workouts over the weekend and water and smart choices will bring that down a bit. I ordered Billy Bands on Wednesday to do Elite Bootcamp (I totally killed my first DVD, as in, it doesn't work anymore I played it so many times). They say 10 to 15 days for it to arrive which is a real bummer because I was hoping I'd get them within five to six days to start this workout, I'm so jazzed about it. I enjoy Billy--at times the music is annoying, but I think he's changed that up since my first DVD, and I now play my own music over him and just watch the video (do the video).

Anyway, thanks all for the welcome! Have a great Friday!!!

Hope everyone is doing well :hug: Kiwi would love to see your cruise pics but have to set up a myspace. Danni, am trying the walking thing, it's something i actually really enjoy. I keep thinking one day I will be able to walk to and from work. (about 5k) Not right now of course but maybe in a few months will try and work up to it. :running: Have ordered a new pair of running shoes and a new support bra. :o. It's really hard to find things that fit where we are so do a lot of ordering from catalogs.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend
Thank you all you never fail to make me smile.

Danni_Marie: Don't beat yourself up so much over it. I'm having a slow (read: tough) day too. Animal crackers (why do they have to taste so good?). Tomorrow is a new day and a new start. You've already come so far. I feel stuck where I am! And I can't seem to make myself swallow more water. I'm going to try again today, big time.


Suz: What lake are you near?

Have a great rest of the weekend, all!

Well hello there. Boy is it easy to just quit coming by here. I've gotta start coming by here regularly. Tomorrow is another weigh in day. I weighed last Monday and showed a 3.2 lb loss, but I would be willing to bet I put every bit of that back on. I'd like to be realistic and lose 5 lbs by the end of May...I think I can do that. No wait...I know I can do that.

Starting tomorrow I'm going to start on a "Rest of May Challenge" in which I set 2-3 goals for myself for each day for the remainder of the month. If any of yall would like to join me in that, feel free.

My goals for each day for the remainder of the month are:
1) Absolutely 100% no soda
2) No less than 64 oz water each day

I'll check in tomorrow with another weigh in and I'll catch up more then. Hope you're all doing well.

Good Morning Everyone:wave:

Welcome Iwanawurkit,:welcome3: Its great to have you. Everyone is doing there own "program" and we are here to encourage.:frypan: :lol: So, I'm sure you will find the encouragement you need.:carrot:

Hi Decade, good to see you again. :wave: Its harder to stay away from us when you feel apart of the group. :grouphug: In order to feel apart of the group you need to participate. :gossip: Which means get to know us and let us get to know you.:hug: Your goals sound great and achievable. I know you can do it.:high:

Hi Bonnie, glad you are back. :hug: I know how you feel 'cause I've been there. ;) We all have. But the great thing is you are here ready to get going.:high: I know you can do it. Baby steps girl! One day at a time. Set some small goals and be consistent with it and when you accomplish them set new ones! :goodvibes I know you can do it.

Seagreenwater, The less you have to lose the harder it seems to lose it. :shrug: We may have a lot more weight to lose than you but it doesn't make it any easier for you. :hug: You need more toning as you lose your weight and that is so hard to get committed too. :tread: But Suz and Danni are really consistent with it and can give great advice and encouragement about it.:running: :cheer:

Suz I have face box but could not really understand how to get it going.:dizzy: My niece uses it but I found it to difficult to find people. I never could even find my niece on it. :?:

Tammy you are so funny. :D I did notice the 148 but I figured "You are what you believe":^: I can't wait till I'm 148!!:carrot:

Danni your pictures are great! :rolleyes: You are doing very well on your diet and it shows!:p I was really wanting to say some sarcastic remark but I'm bigger than that :ziplip: and I must admit you are somewhat attractive :dz: and really don't look like what I had envisioned. :sumo: Which is good because the thought of meeting someone with horns coming out of there head:devil: and fangs protruding out of their mouth :badbat: was kind of scary!:joker:

Hi all! How is everyone doing? I realize I don't know much about you guys (personally...weight loss goals I can see =) ). I started EFS today. Day one down, and I think it went well.

What are you all working toward? I mean, spiritual, emotional, real-world goals (ie, bathing suits, or events). I really enjoy this thread and i just figured out how to actually subscribe to it.

Iwanawurkit--welcome! And Decade and Butterfly50--I don't think we've "met."

Good evening ladies and :welcome2: to all our new friends

seagreen about your question about which lake i live near I am about 15 miles north of lake ontario but my brother has a cottage on a inland lake about 60 miles north east of where I live

I am hoping to be at my goal weightof 135 by the end of July but at the rate I am going I can't seem to get below 158 If i keep beating myself up over this maybe I could lose a lb or so :rofl:

Tammy I love your picture!:dance: Its so great to be able to put face to your name!:D

Kim couldn't find you.:shrug: I tried both names and still couldn't. On your myspace it tells you what your link is. Try coping it and then pasting to this post. Its in the same place that tells what your email address is. :D

Suz I know what you mean about losing and gaining the same weight. :( I'm frustrated also with mine. :tantrum: I lost 1 lousy pound and its 1 of the 9 I gained!!:^: I'm not really doing all the great. Part of my problem is I'm not writing things down.:write: I keep forgetting to do it. Therefore I'm not keeping up with my points.

Anyway, my son graduates tomorrow!! :bravo: My church recognized him Sunday. They made a table and fixed it up with all his awards and trophies over the last 3 years. (It would have been four years but he skipped the 11th grade and moved up to the 12th) Anyway, They read all his accomplishments and most people didn't know he was valedictorian until then.:high: (he's such a humble kid not like his mom ha ha:D ) I was really proud of him. :hug: You can really tell the Lord has his hand on him. :angel:

Everyone have a great day.:carrot:

Kiwi....I can't get on my space at work so I haven't had the opportunity to look on my space. I sign on with the following email addy: kimberly_skaggs@yahoo.com.....does that help? Whenever anyone leaves a comment for me a message comes to that email account. I don't really know how to use the my space and I usually have to get my daughter to help out. LOL!

Excellent day yesterday with the food, water and exercise. The last day of my auditing class is tomorrow and we have a 15 page paper due so .... I will be happy after tomorrow!

Good Morning,
Today is the day my son Graduates!! Kim I added you to my friend list. Your family is beautiful!! Oh and I believe you are older than me! I turn 50 in October!! ha ha ha

I don't know what is wrong with me. I can't seem to lose this weight. I need some help getting back on track. One day I will be on the next off. Morning i"m good then by evening i'm off!

Kiwi....I will have to wait until I get off from work to add you. Thanks for looking me up and yes, I am older than you but not by much. My youngest son is Mack and he graduates from high school on the 25th of May. Lil Bit is my daughter Alysha and SKAGGS is my oldest son Jared and his fiancee Adrienne. I can't remember if I have a picture of my oldest on my space or not. We are hoping to vacation in Orlando in August.....I was wanting to go to Destin...but, I lost out. We haven't been on vacation in forever!!!! I will get my MBA in August so we thought we needed a vacation before Mack starts college.
Hang in there and the weight will come off. It is extremely difficult to get back on track.....

Good morning ladies. I know...I've got a bad habit of not coming every day, but last time I came by I waited over a week to come back....guess I'm getting a little better. I guess old habits die hard cause the last couple days I've had soda without even realizing I was having it until it was too late...but today is better. So far no soda, and I'm being conscious about it. Nothing really special to report here. My husband and I have a dinner meeting with a video gaming buddy later tonight if my boss doesn't call me in cause he tweaked his back...again. My kitty is sitting here next to me and once I'm done posting this I have to go off and write my article that's due tonight.

seagreenwater - Nope...haven't met yet. I just hopped in this thread about 3 weeks ago, and I'm trying to work on posting more regularly. In a previous life I was in this thread way back several months ago. Maybe we should come up with some sort of getting to know you survey so we can all get to know each other better.

Danni Marie - Thanks...I'm happy to be back. Now if only I can get into the habit of coming by daily. :) Stinks that you didn't lost this week, but after cheating like you said you have that's great news!

kiwichic - Welcome! Now we have two kiwis. That's gonna be fun! Hope you'll come by and post with us often. I haven't been here long, but I knew one person here in a previous 3fc life. And I know she's a great inspiration...and from what I've seen from the others they are too. You can do it...I know you can.

Kiwi24 - Woohooo! Another pound....yippeee! Congrats! And congratulations on your son graduating. It's a big day for both of you.

I'm sure I missed some of you, but I really need to get to work. I have 4 hours and counting to get my article done. And I still wanna get in an exercise video and a shower before we go out for dinner tonight. Yall have a great day!

Hi all,:hug:
Just a really quick note, am super busy at work today.:carrot:

Congrats to your son Kiwi, you must be soooo very proud. You were right about loving the water bf and I try and get out at least once a week on the lakes and rivers here. :) We have so many places to explore.

:congrat: Danni you must be so proud of how far you have come, you and Kiwi are both very inspiring :dance: . Makes me believe I CAN DO THIS.:dancer:

Decade hope you got your article written in timeÖ..:chin: I like the idea of a little survey to get to know each other better. Would be interesting for sure.

Suz, Iwanawurkit, seagreenwater, kiwichic:flow2: Hope you have a great day.

I guess for most of you it is probably past dinner time and here I am still plugging away at work. :grouphug: If i missed anyone am sorry will try and write again tommorow.

Take care Tammy
I WILL BE THIN AGAIN, I WILL BE HEALTHY AGAIN!!:jig:

Good Morning Everyone :grouphug: TGIF! :yes:

He must take after his father's side :devil: :devil: :tape:
:rofl: JK I am sure he has some of your wonderful qualities as well :snooty:
for those of you newbies, Kiwi and I do this to each other, it is a love :hug: hate relationship :devil: she loves :love: me wants to be like me ;) it is hard for her to live up to such high standards...:lol:

I love the outlet malls in Destin!!! Go there all the time and that darn Baskin Robbins IceCream store across the highway too :tantrum: :drool:

Hi Tammy :wave: yes you can do it!!! You go girl :D

Hey decade..did you get your article done? What kind of kitty? mine is a tabby grey with black stripes who thinks he is part dog :rolleyes:

Kim - What a great Myspace page!! I am not a myspacer but I am learning from Kiwi and my son. :rolleyes:
What great pics, great looking family too :yes: I have sent you a request and email through myspace if you could be so kind and let me know if you received them, that I did it right? :lol: Thanks....love your page!

Suz :listen: where are u? Hope you are not giving up :nono:

:coach: alright ladies....NO CHEATING...it is gonna be hard it is the weekend...but if you do cheat DO NOT throw away the entire day...just the meal or snack you cheated with K?????

Have a great one!

Good Morning,

You ladies forgive me! :^: I'm all about me these last days because of Graduation!!:cloud9:

Graduation was wonderful.:D I have 3 pictures of it on myspace. I'll get more later. I am proud of him.:hug: We got to thinking about it and realized how much he really accomplished. :cool: He wasn't suppose to graduate until next year but was moved up this year to the 12th and still managed to make Valedictorian and many other awards and titles and play Football and continued to be Christ focused. :queen:
He told me once that he prayed that by the time he graduated he wanted 1000 people to know he was a Christian. Not for his glory but for God. Jake has been an example of Christ throughout his high school years. God honored his prayer by helping him be Valedictorian and last night there was over 1000 people there and in his speech there was no doubt that God was first in his life!:cp:

We are having a Hawaiian Lua Saturday to celebrate his graduation.:celebrate: Got to get the place ready. I have a gazebo in my back yard and I bought grass skirts so I'm fixing it up to look like a tiki hut. :lol: Then I have all kinds of Decorations for the rest of the yard including tiki lamps. Tons of food that I made sure some of it was WW approved!:D ha ha

Everyone have a great weekend! Ladies we are going to have to all get together one day Have a party in my backyard and then go hang out at the beach!! :grouphug:

I have to explain my hair cut on my profile picture.....I shaved my head three months before that was taken, to raise money for Cancer Research. ALL my hair was gone....they took shaving cream and a razor to my dome. I loved it....I had no need for curling irons, blow dryers or dye for almost 9 months. Woot Woot!!!! Got to get back to work.....looks like I am down 1 pound on day 5 this week.

Hello ladies! I'm exhausted...absolutely exhausted! Helped my little brother mow the lawn today after I took my hubby to work. Boy I forgot just how hard that is! Got a little bit of a sunburn and I'm just completely exhausted, but I'll live. I did get my article done....sorta. I talked to my senior editor, and he stuck me on a fan reaction article about Dale Earnhardt Jr instead because of the big news that came out about him. My kitty is just a sweetie...a tabby. Her name is Patches, and she's one of 7 in our zoo. Here's a pic of her:

http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c85/BethL4434/of50332443.jpg

I'm sitting here trying to watch the NASCAR race in Darlington, but it's raining there and they're having to wait for it to stop. At this rate, my hubby will get off of work before they get the race in...he's scheduled till 9. Oh well...the track has lights, so I know they'll run it tonight if they can.

I'm gonna go snag a getting to know you survey I saw somewhere else just for the heck of it if yall are interested. Of course you're welcome to fill out as much or as little as you'd like :)

Iwanawurkit-Where ya from exactly? My hubby is originally from southern Indiana, and I just noticed you were too.

Decade
05-12-2007, 09:38 PM
Here's a survey....fill out as little or as much as you'd like to about yourself. This way we can all get to know each other. I'll probably be back later to fill it out. I'm gonna go get a few more minutes in on World of Warcraft before I leave for the grocery store and to pick my hubby up from work. If I don't make it back tonight, have a great night and Happy Mother's Day to all of you mothers out there!

edited cause I wanted to put that I borrowed this from the 300+ forum...hope they won't mind :)

Good Morning Everyone! :grouphug:

Whew :stress: it has been one of "those" weeks! :yikes: Started my new job :cp: then my computer is acting up "again"! :rolleyes: I think my son is downloading viruses in it when he visits certain cites, well at least that is what my hubby thinks, so he tried all night to fix it last night it is running better this morning so I am hoping we are well on our way to being fixed :cp:

Well I did NOT lose again this week, still holding on to my 164 :cp: aunt flo is here too :rolleyes: so I am hoping to see some results this monday after she leaves :yes: I have not done my toning :wl: like I had hoped to do for my May goal and there are only 2 weeks left and it does not look like I am running for the weights anytime soon :lol: So maybe for June I will tone up in the pool??:swim:

Hi everyone,:carrot:

We got back late Saturday and I went straight to bed! :faint: Wow there are alot of post and alot to catch up on. :D Its so good to see everyone writing.

You are right Kim I do need to get refocused. :smug: I believe this weekend helped.:cb: I had a chance to try on some new clothes this weekend and I saw 2 skirts that were soooo cute but they were in a 14 and they didn't have any other sizes.:( I knew I couldn't wear them but my friend talked me into getting them so I could "work" my way into them.:exercise: After we got back to her place I thought I would try them on just to see how much more I need to get off and THEY FIT!!! :high: I couldn't believe it!! I felt so good that I got exited about losing weight again!!:goodscale This morning I weighed and had lost 1 pound!!:encore:

Congrats Tammy for the weight loss. :cheer2: You can do it!:congrat:
Danni Congrats on your weight loss. :dz: Okay I've had a set back and yes you are smaller than me :chin: for now :crazy: but the Kiwi is back on track again so I hope you enjoyed your moment of glory :kickbutt: 'cause Dannilicious will soon be Danniwishes she looked as good as the Kiwi!! :cloud9:

I'm still focused and now that I see the weight coming off I feel even better and am finding it easier to stay on track.:goodvibes I still need to write my food intake down. I started yesterday morning and by evening I didn't. So I'll write what I ate yesterday and do better doing it today. :write:

Good Morning Everyone :grouphug:

First let me congratulate Kiwi on her weight loss and fitting into size 14!! :cp: You Go Girl! It is a good feeling ain't it? :yes:

Secondly let me straighten YOU out. :club: Why? :dunno: would I want to be like you? :?: :tied: pfft...I mean really? do you really believe that crap? :lol:
When I got what I got :shrug: and missy it doesn't :nono: matter what my crown is MADE of..:queen: It is how I wear it ;) that matters.
Now I'll give ya you are cute :dz: but I AM DANNILCIOUS and I ROCK ROCK! :cp: :lol:

Suz: sorry to hear your are still not loosing....maybe "shock" your body for a couple days eat some things you normally do not eat, in MODERATION :lol: and then go back to how you have been eating and see it that doesn't shake the scale and increase your water intake...It WILL flush out FAT cells. :crossed: good luck

Kim: glad to hear you are back on track :kickbutt: to get you moving at a faster pace :D Keep up the great work! You can and WILL do this :yes:

gotta run to work, have a great day ladies.......:rolleyes: and Kiwi :rofl: jk, I wish you a grand day too :hug:

Good Morning,:wave:

Suz, you say ur stuck at 160? :chin: What size is that, a 14? What size are you wanting to get into? 135 for you is a size what? 135 for me at 5 feet is a size 9. have you tried new clothes on yet to see if maybe you are dropping inches? :belly: Maybe its time to change your regular eating plan.:carrot: I like the idea that someone gave about "shocking" your body. :yikes: Who was that idea from?? ;) Oh yea, I remember "THE ROCK" :rofl:

Oh Danni, you amuse me. :lol:
Like a cat with rat... :mouse: meow psst psst!!:devil:

Everyone have a great day. :grouphug: I have found that eating oatmeal with Cinn. each morning has helped me alot with snacking before lunch. It also holds me over so I can have lunch around 1 or 2. Maybe that bit of info might help someone.:hug:

Decade
05-23-2007, 12:47 PM
Well I haven't done well on the challenge at all. Last Friday we had a major blowup here in which my own father felt the need to shove me. I had 3 beers that night, and ever since I have eaten in front of the tv or in the car at least once a day. I have however been able to continue to cut back my portion sizes and get moving even if it hasn't been an official 30 minutes of exercise. I weighed yesterday just outta curiosity and found that I was down 3 pounds...so I guess I'm doing something right. And even better news. Someone else has noticed my weight loss. My husband and I went to church to see our boss get baptized Sunday, and our boss' wife mentioned that she thought I had lost some weight. I actually have lost about 10 pounds since I saw her last...and it felt great that someone noticed (and I mean someone who doesn't see me every day or doesn't know I'm doing this). Yall have a great day and I'll be back later. :)

Danni-I'm feeling a bit better but I'm still angry. See the above paragraph for why that day was so terrible. I did get my article done and with a few hours to spare. Now I'm coming up with another topic, but that article isn't due until Thursday night...so I've got a little time.

Kiwi-Glad to see you back on track! We all knew you could do it!

Iwanawurkit-Thanks for asking about me. I had a bad Friday afternoon, and I just didn't wanna do anything. But there's no sense in running from yall when yall are here to help me.

If I missed anyone, I'm sorry. I have some work to do. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Kiwi24
05-23-2007, 05:15 PM
Oh my Decade! :( Should I ask why he shoved you? :shrug: Not like there was any excuse for a man including "Dads" to put his hands on you.:nono: I hate to hear it. When I get angry I eat so I can see why you did but hey you didn't gain!! I hope you and Dad can work things out. :snooty: Its awful when families fight.:hug:

Hi all,:hug:
Well hope everyone is doing well:hug:
I am still 242.6 but am blaming the fact that i was at a bbq on the weekend and sorta got side tracked:o But only a little bit. It was Victoria day here monday so was a long weekend and pretty much the start of summer. It's getting hot up here finally, for some of you folks am sure would consider it still a little chilly. +20C/70F. :carrot: :carrot: :carrot:
Kiwi how exciting fitting into a 14 :carrot:
Decade I voice the same opinion as kiwi on the "mans hands on." Hope you can work things out.
Danni :bravo: congrats on the 2lbs loss.
To you and Kiwi both you never fail to make me laugh.:joker:
Must get my butt back to work
To those i missed I am thinking of you! Don't give up!
Take Care Tammy
I WILL BE THIN AGAIN I WILL BE HEALTHY AGAIN!!!!

Good Morning,
Tammy what is Victoria day? Is that like our July 4th or memorial day or Veterans day? That's pretty neat I never really thought about holidays other than the U.S.A. We have holiday this weekend. So I plan on enjoying a BBQ myself.

I didn't lose any this morning but hopefully by Sat I will have some off.

Have a great day everyone

WamTam
05-24-2007, 02:55 PM
Hi all
Hope everyone is doing well today!
Kiwi here is the technical meaning :) of our Victoria day:
Victoria Day (French: FÍte de la Reine) is a Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the last Monday before or on May 24 in honour of both Queen Victoria's birthday and the current reigning Canadian Sovereign's birthday.

While Victoria Day is often thought of as a purely Canadian event, it is also celebrated in some parts of Scotland, particularly in Edinburgh and Dundee, as well as in the Cayman Islands, where it is also a public holiday.

I know i have a problem:dizzy: keeping up with the holidays in the US as well helps that my bf is originally from Organ. He fills me in on the holidays and there meanings. Our thanksgiving :thanks2: is in October here and yours in november ours always falls on a monday as yours falls on a thursday. I wonder why the differances.

Well today is another beautiful day:cool: in the north woke to sunshine and birds singing.:flow2: I love it here the vast open spaces are breathtaking. In the coming weeks i hope to post some more pictures on my space of the place I call home. :angel:

I must go do some work my year end is coming up:( and my accountant is arriving from vancouver the first part of june to review the books. Hopefully I have kept things in order this past year:dz:.
Ladies have a wonderful day sorry if I blabbed on and on. Take Care All:hug: Til Later Tammy:grouphug:

Kiwi24
05-25-2007, 10:51 AM
Good Morning,:wave:

Tammy that was really interesting. :yes: Its silly but I just took it for granted that everyone celebrates with us! ha ha:lol:

That's a great idea about pictures of your area. :cp: I think I will show pictures of PC area. I'm always bragging about our beaches and I should show you why!! :beach: We also have many other great sites to PC. I need to get my Digital fixed and I'll place them on myspace for you all to see them.:high:

No weight change. :dz: I'm disappointed but at least its not a gain.:^: I really wanted to lose 3 pounds this week. I keep going up and down with a pound or 2. Maybe I need to do that LA jump start. :chin: That's always good for a few pounds and gets me losing again. The problem is Salads do not sound appealing to me.:p

Anyway, most people have Monday off so have a great 4 day weekend!!:goodvibes I weigh tomorrow so wish be luck!!:goodscale

So I have a question????/
How do you get motivated to make your self get in gear and loose weight and exercise?????
Everyday I tell my self that I am going to loose weight and do this then I fall flat on my face and give in to the urges to have all these things that i shouldnt?????How do I give in and make my self say no. I am sooo confused I hate myself . Any Ideas Willing to try anything.



Thanks

Good morning all,
Bonnie: don't give up :hug: One day at a time, I know i have done the same as you thinking TODAY will be the day, and not succeding. Most days I have to force myself to get off my butt:kickbutt: and excersise. But it does get easier, and I have been told that after about 3weeks it will be come a habit. Don't set to many standards take baby steps, and work your way up. If one day is a off day pick yourself up and start again. Don't get to frusterated:tantrum: we all have bad days!

Kiwi at least there is no gain. I have one of these digital scales :goodscale so shows pds and ozs. The start of the week I was 242.6 this morning I was 242.2. Not much of a loss. But at least we are not gaining!!!

Well i hope everyone else is doing well Danni, Kim, Suz, Decade!! Have a great long weekend ladies. Take Care will try and check back later
Tammy:grouphug:

Good Morning,:wave:

don't hate yourself Bonnie.:hug: We have all been where you are at. Heck I'm just getting through it AGAIN!. Bonnie before you can achieve anything you have to believe that you can. Before you can believe you can you have to be able to see yourself achieving it. :high:

Bonnie try this. Get magazines of clothes you would like to wear in a smaller size. Fine pictures of the size you would like to be. Pictures of every size every outfit.:book2: If you live alone then put them on your fridge. If not put them in a note book that you can look at each day. This will be your visual chart. :mag: Something you see everyday and can get excited about. :goodvibes Look at these pictures everyday. See yourself wearing that outfit! See yourself being that size! Make a dream book!! Shoot I'm so excited about the thought I'm going to make one today. :D ;)
My dream book will have new look for me and new look for the house. I'm even going to put dream vacations! hahaha:cloud9:

Anyway Bonnie do you get the point of the dream book? You will be what you believe and you will believe what you can see!! :goodluck:

Love ya

Excellent advice from Kiwi!!!! I am going to borrow that to get myself on track for this journey. I post on another thread where everyone is following the 'You On A Diet' and in one year from October, we are all going to meet in Las Vegas. There are a total of 11 of us and we have been posting since January. One of our 'Sisters' lives in Vegas and she has already lined up massages, bathing suits and Chef to teach us how to cook healthy. We are going to splurge on ourselves. With almost 100 pounds for me to lose, I need to kick my butt in gear and get serious. Thanks again Kiwi!:D

Decade

Well I know it has been a little bit. My hubby and I have been watching more tv together the last few nights, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Thanks for the kind words about the incident last Friday. I don't see us ever working that crap out...it's been the same kinda stuff most of my life. The cool thing was the my hubby was about ready to kill my dad once he shoved me. It was great to know how much he cared (even though I already know it on a daily basis)

Have a good one!

Good Morning,

Hope everyone is having a great holiday today. I love that everyone in the family is off work. My son has brought his girlfriend over to spend the day. They both start different colleges in August. She's going to California!!! :(

Anyway I didn't lose anything Saturday. Stayed the same. Bummer, I'll do better this week. I feel more motivated for some reason. I've been writing everything down. Anyway,my birthday will soon be on me so I need to get into gear to have this weight off. By the way, what happen to my ticker?
I noticed it was gone. I didn't remove it. I hadn't noticed because I haven't had to change it but its not there. I'll put a new one on.

Oh and I got my dream book together. Its great!! Every time I look at it I get excited. Umm? Maybe that's what help me this week.

chat later

Hey my tickers are back?!! I'm so confused!! I swear they were not there this week and now they are!! hahahaha Oh and they switched things around again with the smiley faces.

Good Morning,
Suz the last time I had a veg garden I remember it being hard work. I would think that would give you plenty of exercise. I guess its not the right type. I'm glad to hear you are back to weight. June will be a great month.

Danni it was just the weekend you will have that under control in no time.

Well I did okay yesterday. Didn't stay within my points but I had extra points I could use.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Well, it is summer time and I guess things slow down because everybody is soaking up the sunshine, working in their gardens or just plain having fun! Have a great day! I wanted to check in before the weekend. My son's graduation party is tomorrow....I hope I do okay food wise but I will probably eat some cake. I didn't indulge for my birthday but this is so special and I love bakery items.;)

Hi all,

I did okay yesterday but still no weight change. Tomorrow I weigh in.

Kiwi24
06-02-2007, 07:32 PM
Well I gained a 1/2 pound! I was really surprised but she told me it was the osters I had Friday. I never thought about them having all the salt. They sure were good though! I went today and bought a bunch of groceries so I think I will do good this week.
Oh and for you sweet-a-holics Mrs.Freshly has a new products out that are only 2 points. Snack stuff like all the "little Debbie" treats but not near the calories. They are sweetened with Splenda and believe it or not they taste great!! they had them at Walmart.

is this one of those threads where you stand up and say "Hi I'm Me and I've been living in denial" ... and everyone says hi Me lol
Are there 12 steps to follow to get ourselves out of this problem.
All of this year I have been trying to sort this out , when I thought I was doing really well, I think I had just found a new way to fool myself.
I just want to get started and get this ball rolling. I'm finding it hard just to do that, can't seem to get my head in the right frame of mind.
Is anyone else having this problem

cheers :)

Good Morning,:wave:

I wrote a post yesterday but its not here?:( humm? I must have signed off without actually posting it. I must have hit preview instead. ha ha:dizzy:

Anyway Kim, I was saying you need a kick not a hug for eating the cake!:kickbutt: Although I've been there too!:^:

Hi Kiwichic,:smug: Do you realize its been a month since you were here? :?: (minus 2 days) What's up with that?:p I thought you were going to help me out around here. :yes: I thought you and I would bond here!! Together we would make fruit salad out of Danni! :devil:
Seriously though, we all would like to help you.:grouphug: What plan are you on? I do weight watchers. We all do different things. We all have relapses:faint: but the idea is not to stay down too long.:goodvibes But there is only so much we as a group can do. For example people tend not to write in when they are cheating :^: but that's when you need us the most. I've been there. Its a whole lot easier to stay focused when you have a group you can go to and be encouraged.:hug: Some days are bad some days are good. But I have worst days when I stay away.:o We are always open to ideas that you would like to share with the group to help motivate us.

By the way this is a new month what's everyone's goal this month? I started early. I needed all the help I could get. Man I hope I lose something this week!! :D

Hope everyone is doing good today.

Hi,
Well I did great yesterday. Saturday I weigh in so I'm looking for a good weigh in! My son's birthday is Saturday and then my husbands birthday is Sunday. My goal is to not GAIN weight of the weekend!!

Suz my Dads birthday was the 6th. My sisters was the 3rd. Alot of birthdays in June.

Kiwichic, you need some type of plan. Yes I know cutting back is good but where there is no plan you can't be consistent with losing. Its hard enough with a plan. What's your goal? I mean how much weight and when do you plan to have it off. Then what is the plan to get it off? At least try writing everything down. That way you have an idea of what you are eating and can decide what to cut back on.

Lets see its been 8 days since I was here because of computer problems :?: and shame on all of you :nono: 'cause i thought I was going to have a hard time catching up and yet only Suz and Kim wrote in.:dz: What's up with that?! :listen:

I got a new computer!!:cp: I love it and we got a great deal. Marked down from 800 to 300. Hopefully it won't crash and now I can keep up with everything. Ever since my computer crashed and I'm been using my old one its hard to get on it. It locks up and everything.:tantrum:
Well my dh is here to install more stuff i need for this thing so I will let you go. :comp: Hope everyone is doing good.:hug:

Hi ladies:hug:
I have been very bad at checking in here, but haven't gained anything latly but then haven't lost either. Am still at 242 ugh.
Well life has been busy the last few weeks planting flowers year end at work, fishing boating getting bf's son ready to go to his moms for the summer.:( He turns 13 on Canada Day so we had a little bit of a party for him. We sent him off on the plane early friday morning. :cry: But mom deserves time too i guess.

Kiwi Suz & Kim I keep reading your posts but haven't had a chance to write. Sorry ladies have been thinking of you all. What happend to Danni??

Must run will try and post tommorow:wave:
Chin up take care Tammy

Good Morning,:wave:

I'm loving this new computer! :comp:Its so fast! Anyway, its doing alot of raining here and that's good 'cause we really need it. :rain:
My daughter in love got a job.:woohoo: She is an assistant to the boss. She really needed to get a job. Now I need a job. I have no idea what to do.:chin: I'd like to start a business. :cloud9: I keep thinking I wish I could do something that I enjoy. I see people do it all the time. I just can't think of anything I'm really good at that I could make money with. (legally,:lol: J/K) I'm mean seriously, 3FC started with some sisters talking:gossip: and I guess they now make money with it. :DI
I thought about doing some volunteer work so I could be doing something but as shallow as it sounds I'm not interested in the "retirement" group and I don't want to work with kids on a continuous basis.:dizzy: I really like the idea of working for myself but not like Avon or Mary Kay. I don't think that type of sales is what I'm looking for. :mag:

Anyway My weight dropped a few ounces. 181.6.

Chat later.

Kiwi....are you creative? Once school is out I am thinking about doing a hobby I always wanted to try my hand at.....homemade soap. My sister in law is very creative and she has been painting on clothes and she also does bead work.....long story on the short side....she sells her items on Ebay. Are you good at planning parties......be a party planner!

Bonnie....it will be okay. You just need to refocus and get your mojo back! You can do it....we are here to help in any way we can.

Tam.....I wondered where you were. Sounds like you don't have time for yourself so it is a good thing you haven't gained.

I have been up and I have been down.....and now my string is stuck. LOL I love myself so i am just going to do it!

Suz I don't know where they are hiding! Ya think you are building a relationship with these ladies:hug: and then they just quit writing! What's up with that? :dz:Its like having a friend who talks to you every day :blah:and then poof they stop coming by and stop talking and you are wondering what the heck is going on?:sorry: I miss everyone!:dizzy:

Kim I'm not very crafty.:shrug: Actually, I'm not good at those kind of things.

I thought and thought about and what I am good at. I like to talk:blah: and give insights to things.:soap: At least my version of it but with humor and sarcasm.:joker: I'm not sure how that could benefit me financially.;) Maybe if I wrote a book :write:but I have no idea how that works. I'm not even sure how to begin.:chin: But its a thought.

Actually, I did write something yesterday on my blog on myspace.:comp: It kinda shows what I'm talking about.
Actually, a couple of people did mention I should publish my thoughts but I just laughed it off.

How about all of you looking at it and tell me what you think. Maybe I could do something with it. :lol:

I was back down to 179 this morning. Yeah!:carrot:

I hope all of you are doing well. I know schools out but drop in and say hi!:p

Good Morning,
Suffering from a tooth ache today. Its always something,isn't it. Anyway, it makes my ear hurt. My weight has stayed the same.
Bonnie how are you doing?

It won't be long and my daughter will be married. July 7t. I'm doing the rehearsal dinner since her finance is paying for the entire wedding including her Dress!! Which was a fortune but gorgeous!! My daughter decided she wanted a Luah in our back yard. That's simple enough. I'm expecting about 40 people there so I'm going to get Chop Sticks restaurant to cater some sweet and sour Chicken and rice. I'll supply the sushi and side dishes.

Well I'll guess I'll go.

Good fortune on not having to pay for a wedding......sounds like you have a beautiful backyard to have a Luau in....I am really wishing I lived closer because I would do a 'Wedding Crash'. So, we have heard from Bonnie, Suz, Kiwi #1 and Tam....hope I'm not overlooking anyone....if I am.....I apologize. My brain is fried!

Sorry ladies I just donít seem to have enough hours in the day. Still busy at work but itís starting to slow down a little, and since I donít have access to a computer at home I have to write well I am working.

Canada Day weekend this coming weekend so will be off for part of Friday and then the shop is closed on Monday. BF and I are going away camping and fishing. :carrot:Itís always nice to get away from it all.

Kiwi, how exciting it must be with the wedding and all. I am sure you will figure out something that you want to do. Following your heart is important. I havenít read your latest blog on my space, if I get a chance today I will check it out.

Bonnie, :hug: donít be to hard on yourself it takes time and if you have fallen off the wagon;) so to speak just get back up there!! It will all work out.

Kim hope all is well and the taxation class went well!

Anyhow ladies must get my butt back to work. Will try to write tomorrow. If I donít itís not that you are not all on my mind just super busy.

Just got back from the Emergency room. My daughter called me to say that my grandson had pulled the drawers out on his dresser to climb up it to get his cat who was on the TV which is on top of his dresser. Needless to say the dresser fell over and the TV his Noah in the head. He was pretty messed up and shook up. He has 2 goose eggs and a pretty bad looks cut on his fore head. They did a CT scan to make sure he didn't crack his scull. My DH is waiting for the results and I brought the other Grand child home with me.

Kim that's for the encouragement. I'm just cheating to much. :)

Write later.

Well today sure feels like a Monday after having a day off in the middle of the week, so I was inclined to get on the scale :stress: oh and woke up to Aunt Flo :( so a gluton for punsihment I jump on the scale to see that I have stayed the same again..still holding at 159 :cp: However I feel like I weigh much more, do you think I could possibly obtain an eating disorder this late in my life? :dunno: Well technically I think I always had one, I have a food addiction, I love food, can eat even when I am not hungry, not sad, just to eat it cuz it tastes good :drool: sad...but now almost 60lbs lighter and I really do not feel different in my mind...can anyone relate? Will I ever feel thin? do I need to go into double digits to feel that? :shrug: double digits...:rofl: that would be a sight for me :rofl:

Well today I am going to drink lots of water!! and all of you do the same...and I am going to stick with my plan and tone tone tone.....right girls? :yes: :yes:

I was doing landscaping last week and got into some poison ivy that now covers both arms and my left side of my face. The medicine makes me dizzy and I look a fright. I was prescribed steriods and antihistamine that makes me eat :nono: food. I have put on 3 pounds :moo: :moo: :moo: ....when will this end? :shrug: I feel like such a baby :bb: and when I step on the scales :faint: :yikes: I am hungry :hungry: all the time and I need a :kickbutt: :kickbutt: so I can spend some time in the sunlight :beach:. To top all that off, I fell down the steps today and now my right foot is swelled up, turning black and blue and is very painful. Is it true if you can wiggle your toes....nothing is broken? Oh well, tonight is the first night of the last series of 6 week courses and I will be done and have my MBA. Life is Grand!

Kim hope your foot is ok:o I don't know about the toe wiggle thing but they say if you can walk on it pretty quickly nothing is broken. So that probably dosen't help much maybe it's best you go get it checked out.
Bonnie, Suz hope all is well. :carrot:
Scale:goodscale is stuck really bad not sure why but it's not moving. I have changed my eating habits completly and am walking almost everyday and the FAT stays. Usually in the summer i lose weight but not this summer. I need a butt kicking motivation. I will not get discouraged though.

Hello Everyone: :grouphug:

It was a grand weekend up north....weather was beautiful :sunny: the fireworks were awesome, the company was good, however the food and drink were way too much :yikes: did I endulge? yup :yes: did I gain? :dunno: I'll find out tomorrow when I weigh in :stress: but until then I ain't gonna think about it :D

Kim :hug: sorry to hear about your foot.... :( You can still exercise, in a chair, lift weights with your arms, wiggle and stretch your body. If you are not in a cast past your knee, you can do leg lifts in chair, and fidget, that burns calories too. Hope you are hopping around soon!

Tammy :hug: it is nice to be back! How are things in Canada? Here is your kick in the pants :kickbutt: now you can do it!!!!!! Drink lots of water!! and move! Even if you cheat, do more exercise..if you burn it up you won't gain!!

Kiwi..where the H*** are ya? :listen: hope all is ok? I'll will be in your state in about 2 weeks :) :sunny:

Hooray the Wedding got done my daughter is married and I'm soooo tired of entertaining!! We had my daughters future husband family staying with us. At least some of them.

I try to write in the AM

See ya Kiwi

I changed my ticker to reflect my actual weight.:carrot: I'm really surpised I hadn't gain much. Actually I've lost if you count what I gained!!:D

I have got to do something about this wedding cake though,:dz: I keep snacking on it day and night. I had a small slice for breakfast already!! :rolleyes:That was the best cake.
Unfortunately as the caterers were bringing it to the church they hit a bump and the cake shifted! :oThat's right it collapsed.:yikes: They walked in and said "it would be in the bride's best interest for her not to see the cake." :sssh: They brought it in and then called for the manager and few people came and tried to fix it up.:chef: My daughter never knew neither did anyone else. Until we tried to cut it.:lol: It was held together by baby spoons and as the server began to cut it she noticed it was trying to fall. She thought it was her. She did a great job. We'll tell my daughter after the honeymoon. I had a good sense a humor about it. I never got mad or upset at all. My daughter would have totally freaked out!! :stress: The caterers are going to refund the money when they get back from the honey moon. :cp:

Kim I am sorry about your foot. :getwell: Get some dumb bells and do some arm lifts.:barbell: Suck in your tummy and hold it for 20 seconds then release and do again.

Hope everyone is doing well. The months have snuck up on me and it looks like I only have 3 more months before my birthday. I really want to be in a size 10 by then so I got to get to work. I did manage to meet my goal of getting into a 14 by the wedding!! :carrot:I don't know how that happened!;)

I must be using some of my muscles as I try to get around. My sides and abdomen hurt from using the crutches and walker. I made my day just bright and cheery and back on program. I have 87 days to see how much weight I can lose before going to Vegas. Vacation in Florida is cancelled since my little fall.....since I am off two weeks with my foot. Yucky!!!!! Not exactly how I want to spend my time but GOD needed to slow me down so I could get back on track. Well, the pain medicine is starting to kick in....siesta time!

Kiwi....so glad the bride didn't find out about the cake....accidents do happen and you handled it like a trooper!!! You rock girl!

Suz....everyone tells me that I should be glad I broke it instead of a sprain.....the sprain is much harder to recover from. When you get lemons...make some lemonade... LOL!!!! Well, I broke down with some jelly beans last night.....augh!!!! I will be on day one until I can move on to day 2. I feel it in my bones....the good ones.....this is going to be day one and day 2 will come tomorrow.

Kiwi.....way to go......get that cake out of site and out of your mind.

How is everyone else?:listen: I'm leaving for the weekend to spend some much needed R & R shopping and soaking up some sun in Destin!! :beach:

Had a great day yesterday with the Grandkids and still managed to stay within my diet!! :cp: The pool is open on base so all next week we are going to enjoy base life activities before school starts. Why didn't I think of it before! I love swimming and I could have gotten my exercise in!! :swim:

Danni sorry about the weight gain I know it won't take long to get it off! (At least for you:o) Danni enjoy Florida I wish you were coming this way. :hug: Although it would seem weird to meet.:^: I'd like to meet everyone but at the same time I wonder sometimes if you guys would like me if we actually met. ha ha ha ;)

Morning to all
Kiwi I almost passed out and was at home when it happened so stayed there and as for going to my doctor no it would take 2 or 3 weeks to see him and as for emergency at hospital that at least a half gone Im OK

We have started to sell our extra veggies and yesterday talked to this lady at a new restaurant in town and she is going to get stuff from us plus we have about a handful or so of regulars who buy from us so I guess that means I will be picking veggies today

Talk care ladies suz :carrot:

Hi everyone
Back from Destin. We had a great time. It was like being on my honey moon! All the stress behind me now. Life is good!!

Suz glad you are feeling better but I would want to know what caused it. Heat? Over work?

Danni lets try and hook up while you are here even if its just for lunch. I will have my grand kids though. I promised them I'd take them swimming that day.

Write later

Wow!! Where is everyone?! Is this group saying good bye?

I don't know if its because of summer or you've lost the weight and aren't motivated to be here anyomore or you are cheating and don't want to listen to anyone. ha ha

I hope everything is good. As for me I don't like talking alone I'll chat another time or you can catch me on myspace.

Bye

Good Morning,:wave:
Well tomorrow is a new month. :cb:So I'm going to start my diet AGAIN on August 1.:^:
I will change my ticker to reflect my weight loss and I wrote my measurements down, Weighed myself, have my food for the week and even stepped on the scales to see what I weighed!! :goodscale Its time to get serious again. I've been up and down to long. I'm going to start a new thread also.

I hope I can find a few people ready to get started again. I think there is some of you still wanting to get this weight off. :hug: We can do it if we get focused, quit living in denial or worse yet GIVE UP!!:stress: So for those of you who haven't met your goal weight and would like to start again. LET'S DO IT!:cheer:
