Andrea, you must be reading my mind. fresh page, fresh diet plans.......
Things are getting pretty crazy here, my little one has rotovirus and I havent slept in days, sort of on auto pilot, I am afraid to sleep b/c he spiked a temp the other night of 104.6 and I think that my subconscuios is making me stay awake all night.
On our olkd thread I asked about a pill someone was taking, who was that and what can you tell me about the pill? it was about appetite suppressant, i think...

OOOOHHHHHH LOLMaybe I will give it a try. AF showed up last night so I am up a lot today. I am learning how to rollerblade at work and looked it up online. It burns more calories than walking and biking. I am doing it again today and I really enjoy it. There may be rollerblades in my future.
Also, went to frendlys for dinner and thought the turkey burger would be healthy...its not, I got it and was eating it and it was very greasy, dont try it!!!!

I'm here I'm here...Hi you two. Just been a busy bee. DD is out of school so I've been trying to keep her busy until her summer math class starts the 4th. I was down a pound then up a pound and haven't been toooooo off track other than yesterday and today with taking DD out to lunch. I'm going to have to learn to write down points or figure out a low point dinner. What do you two do for dinner? Please say you guys do not eat chicken everyday.

dd is out already?? not here they arent...yet. youll be ok dont worry and no i dont eat chicken every day....you kiddin? up til a few days ago id developed a taste aversion to chicken and wasnt eating it period cept chicken salad. i hope this doesnt sound pushy or obnoxious cuz its not meant to be but you sound bored with dinner. have you thought about giving core a try?.the thing i love about core is theres so many choices. i eat alot of lean beef, turkey, wheat pasta but theres always ham steaks, fish and pork.

Hi ladies Happy Friday. Still 244 this morning...i am happy with that since yesterday wasn't pretty. Had a bit of a sugar snack feast last night.

A, tell me about this wheat pasta..is it good? Does it taste anything like wheat bread cause I don't care for that? I am bored with dinner. If I do low point dinners they are plain. Which usually means chicken something cause it's low in points.

T, You know they do have pills that have that already in there. I tried them for a while but the after taste was too much for me. Maybe you could but it your food...would that work A?

Yes A school is out woohoo :D DD's math thing is only the month of June then they don't start the new school year until August 20th...which is two weeks later than last year. I may put DD in the summer fun camp after the math class to keep DD busy. Not sure yet I will see how she feels after the math part is over.

I don't know how I did it but I'm STILL at 244. I thought for sure i gained. I tried to do low carb for a couple of days and that kinda back fired on me. So I'm going go back to healthy since that seems to work better in the long run. Dh went shopping with us this weekend and bought tons of junk so that was pretty much what we ate all weekend. I need to get to the store and buy some real food. I went to the WW part of this board and found a couple dinner ideas that were low in points.

T, sorry about the job. Hope you find something quickly :hug:

Losing4another
05-30-2007, 03:34 PM
I'm not taking anything..not even thyroid pills. I know I need to be but I have to wait until I can get back to the DR. I have a new insurance that I have to pay 500.00 worth of DR bills before Insurance starts kicking in. Don't have the extra money right now and I already know I'm going to get yelled at by my doctor but really what can I do health care isn't free.

andreaphilip3
05-30-2007, 03:47 PM

hey guys where are ya?

Losing4another
05-31-2007, 07:47 PM
Thanks to Dh's job yeah thats what I'm looking at ..Down sizing means cheaper insurance which really isn't cheaper for us only the company.. Every year it rolls over. We really don't go to the DR that much..well not covered services anyway. By the time I'm back into meds and yearly gyn appts... I probably never will use the insurance after the 500.00...unless I'm sick an awful lot. Hoping that doesn't happen either *KNOCK ON WOOD* No I really don't feel to bad really. I have my days and I have a few pills I have put away for those days. I know I don't need as many MG as they give me but the last time I was in I couldn't see my DR I had a stand in that didn't want to hear changing without another 2 months on meds and a blood test showing them I needed to be changed

Got some news today that kinda that has me PO. My daughter is now in walking distance to her school yet it's the same school as last year. They built some sidewalks around the school that is supposed to have made it easier for kids to get to the school...yeah maybe the kids clsoe to the school those side walks are right in front of the school. We live on the other side of a busy street she would have to cross if she was to ride her bike /walk to school and on early mornings where everyone is trying to get to school that street is not where I would want to see a bunch of kids trying to cross. I can take her to school which i will if I can't fight this........... Listen to this she can take the bus.... which the bus stop is a block and a half away for a dollar a day. Putting the gas in my gas tank is cheaper than a dollar a day.

andreaphilip3
06-01-2007, 11:51 AM
thats insane!!!! i wouldnt want my kids walking a busy street either...get em!!!

im glad you feel good most of the time i only take .25 but if i gom long enough wo it i feel like do do. its funny bc i need more than that but i cantr tolerate more which is why i opted adding tyrosine plus the thyroid supplement. i feel sorry for you..... i beach about our insurance alot bc theres alot i need that isnt covered but i at least have some of the basics covered.

Losing4another
06-01-2007, 02:07 PM
Yes insane is the best word to use. I have a few people besides myself on the horn about this. It's almost like they are just trying to get more money then they already do with taxes. I can drive my daughter if push comes to shove but what about the hundreds of other parents that have kids way younger than my daughter that the only way to get thier child to school is either the dollar a day bus ride or child care before school which is about 35 a week. Public school is supposed to be free right? And if the bus is already going to whichever stop and you make the time and place just like everyone else why would you have to pay a dollar...it's not like you get special service and they come right to your house or anything.

I will get back to the doctor here in a few months. Just have to take care of a few things first. They keep cutting dh's hours so everything is tighter than normal. Dh has a cow about me getting a job so I will have to weigh it out until things pick up.

Yeah he doesn't want strangers watching our daughter. Hes been like since she was a newborn. He thinks she should only be left with family and not wasting time with people she doesn't know or have relationships with. Other than school of course. Even at church he says he doesn't need her babysat if she isn't in there to learn then he will watch her himself. Which I can't down him for that I feel the same way with some of it but heck for an hour or two really what would it hurt? I don't mind not working I mean I love being there to watch games and anything else she wants to do. I just think if we need the money now then until we don't I can work around DD's school hours maybe an hour or two of daycare. Another year or so she will not even need childcare anymore so unless we do get pregnant again I will be working full time... right now is just until something changes with his job.

Losing4another
06-02-2007, 01:46 PM
I think I should add if i could find a family member or close friend to watch Dd then it wouldn't be an issue. Dh's sister has the hardest time finding sisters herself and she works her own hours. My mom could do it but lives over an hour away. She doesn't like driving enough to pick her up everyday. I will figure out something I always do.

the disadvantage of this is friendships and independance are limited. My son is finally making firends and having time away from mom and dad is beneficial to him for finding his own personality.

Yes T that is very true and even more so for your son since hes so young. When my daughter was that young we had a few friends with kids the same age and had play dates( mommy time too) almost daily. After school age it's a given that they will make even more friends and independance. There is a plus side to all this though I will not complain about : I can bring her to as many after school activities as she would like to join without having to worry about the hours in which they start and end. I love that I could do that.
Right now is my problem but I will work it out.
Lucky you T.....I almost got one of those for DD 4/5 months ago. Then I thought I better wait for a birthday or christmas for something like that. Although I want it probably just as much as DD :lol:

yes doing much better today. No soda or sugary snacks. I was snacking on snacks all day then eating high fat dinners. Never a good combo. Gained everything back but I'm hoping if I stick to the plan maybe I will get back down in no time since it's still a fresh gain if that makes sense at all. Thanks A reading your post last night before going to bed gave me a lot to think about before going to sleep. I woke up thinking I can do this! The longer off plan the harder it is to get back on.

Don't know what I would do without you A :hug: It is really hard. I bought myself a notebook to write everything down in. Sometimes it's hard to plan dinner because I get bored with what is planned and sometimes just need something different. That is usually what gets me in trouble. Tomorrow is my Mom's b-day and either tomorrow or Friday I'm going to spend the day and night with her. I need to plan careful so those birthday treats do not send my gain in to a keeper. I'm going to pick up a cake and make her dinner. I could get away with making a big salad though cause she loves salads. Hopefully she hasn't ate them all week though.
I have to get to bed Thanks again A You've been so great :balloons:

Way to go A....The scale is moving back down for me. Will not show a loss but anything I can lose to get me back where I need to be is fine with me. Have a lot to keep me busy next week ...Hey you guys know what DH said JOIN the gym (the one I like) if I want to. I didn't expect that. I've been trying to save and he says if it's something I really want he will pull the hours to make it possible :D I can't wait!!! Although I ran into some stuff i have to help my Mom with. I have to put fence weave in her chain link fence so the neighborhood kids will leave the dogs alone. They aren't very nice kids. She doesn't have the extra money to do this so once that is up and taken care of GYM HERE I COME :) I will get a workout putting it in so that helps too.

T, That really sucks. I put my daughter in a summer math class for extra help in the parts of Math she had trouble with last year. Come to find out it's a reading & math class ...mostly reading. Reading isn't where she needs the tutor. I wish they wouldn't waste time in subjects she doesn't need help with. The classes are for 4 weeks then there is nothing else until after the school year starts. The teacher lets them hang out on the internet when they finish their work... Of course if they are doing mostly reading my daughter is flying through her work and spending most of the day on the computer....She can do that at home. Maybe you could try looking for a tutor on your own. Hope your teacher gets on the ball.

May not be day dreaming when everything hurts those first few weeks back at the gym but it will be so worth it. While I'm still paying for my Mom's fence... I came up with a way to put away the money faster ...other than the surprise 70 bucks in coins. Everytime I go shopping I'm going to take out 10 bucks in cash and put it in a gym fund. What's another 10 bucks here and there? We blow way more than that on stuff we don't even need. I go shopping usally twice a week thats at least 20.00 a week (sometimes three). Another 2 or three weeks and I will have my start up fee and maybe even a ...or most of a first payment. :exercise: :exercise:

Hello ladies :hug:

Ouch T....yes go to the DR

A, I'm up 2 from last week. I did jump on the scale again before getting in the shower and I was a pound lighter but I'm not keeping it until I see it again. I bought a skirt that was a little to tight for a wedding thinking it would fit nice by the time the wedding date came but with me pretty much back to where I started from I'm going to have to go out and buy another cause that one is still going to be way to tight. Oh well :(

Glad your niece made it okay and doing is doing well. Hope she feels better now that they are out.

lorra its funny bc thats how i felt about going out to dinner night bf last(was up 3/4yest) and you know what? im getting so pissed bc forsome reason the gains are sticking and not falling off. im starting to wonder if its hormonal although its kinda slightly early for that but w my body ya never know. i know i deserved the 3/4 but the first 1 1/2???? still dunno where that came from.

thats awesome about dd's class:)

same here A...Just have to keep pluggin and see what happens. I'm suppose to go out to eat again with a friend and her daughter at a kids night thing for the kids tonight but I'm thinking I might back out on that. Maybe I will wait until next week when DD's other friend is down. I don't know yet though...depends on how much of a fight DD puts up about not going.

Yes that class would be awesome. Have to wait until her friend leaves though unless there would be a way to sign her up too.

You were right A :) I couldn't say no ..so we went. DD was kinda like okay whatever... it was my friend and her daughter that were more disappointed by the idea of putting it off. The place had a clown there and she was beggin for us to come back even though the girls really were not into that... they are a little to old. Anyway the clown said if she doesn't get so many people come in they will close her family night down. A clown talked me into bringing the kids next week too.

Woohoo A :hug: , See your body was trying to hold on to weight. I know when I get stuck at a weight, I increase my calories then go back down the next day. Sometimes I gain a little bit but that gain and then some usually comes off a few days later. The hard part is jumping back on after a day of fun

Hi ladies,
What is the curves challenge? Working out everyday day or something like that?

hmmm never heard of herba life what is this? Another one of those things that promises you will lose faster. I think I'm over all that stuff you guys should see all the stuff I bought that I thought would help in one way or another. I take them for a little while then realize they pretty much do nothing. I could pay for a membership to the gym for a year with all the money I threw away there :(

Still up half a pound. Oh well next week will be better. I'm on call to meet Dd's friends father off of the hwy...and I'm sooooo sleepy for some reason. Why does waiting by the phone always make you tired?

Hey T, Yea my nephew. Hes a redhead and burns easily. Poor little guy looked like somebody beat him up for a long while. Atkins didn't go so well? That is one really hard diet to stick to that is for sure. Slimfast gives me a stomachache sometimes. They are great to kick start your body into wanting less food though. One of my friends sisters lost a lot of weight on slim fast a long time ago before they had all the extras they do now.

Still draggin today. Dd's friend had some kind of bump on her leg that was keeping her up last night. I was worrying all night about her. Hope today it's better for her. DD's probably tired too she was up and down a couple times last night too. She did make it to her summer classes with a small complaint about STUPID SUMMER SCHOOL :lol:

Down another ounce today, I like the powder better than the cans, in fact yesterday I took my powder and milk and half a frozen banana and blended it together, it was like a chocolate banana shake and I had it witha a salad and was full!!! I have been cheating a little, I set my goal calories at 200 less a day than sf cite said and that way I feel like indulging on a fudgicle is still under my calories, and its working! My shoulders are healing and I have no restriction of movement anymore so I will start the Wii again today, see how my boxing skills have lapsed!LOL

I haven't even got on the scale.... I have no idea where I am. Af flo is here for me too and I am soo bloated. I'm so looking forward to the gym. I'm hoping by the middle of july I can start.
The wedding didn't go well at all. It was like the other half of the family didn't even want us there. I ended up hanging out with my sisters friends all night. Good thing I couldn't drank. I had a long drive home so it's a good thing I did or no way would i be able to keep my mouth shut. Don't think I will be seeing much of my sister anymore. Didn't really see much of her before but now that I have those feelings it will feel a lot different. No way will I make my family go to something where we are not wanted. I'm not going to stress over it anymore if my sisters wants to get together with us she knows where I live.... moving on :kickcan:

You need to remind me A, This is a hard fight to win. You are really dropping those pounds aren't you. Thankfully I haven't gained anything yet but I know it's coming. I think I've let to much free time get the better of me. To much time to snack.

T, aww poor lil man I hope he gets to feeling better soon. Do we have the same father T :lol: I can't complain to much my dad was there until my later teenage years. Now I couldn't get ahold of him if I wanted too. I do hear about what hes doing/ how's from the other family. He never even meet my daughter and it's not like shes a baby/toddler. I also have a 9 yr old brother that I've never meet. That gives my daughter a uncle younger than her. Which is nothing new to my Dad... to give you an idea my Dads oldest child is in his late 50's early 60's. I'm 28 (almost 29 :eek:) and the youngest is 9. Most of my siblings are old enough to be my parents and the youngest is young enough to be my child. My Dad's up there in age and i have no idea what his plans are for my little brother. Hes no longer with the Mother ..he has the child...not even sure if he still keeps in contact with her. Did you guys follow that? :lol: crazy huh?

I didn't even drink that much so that should tell you how much I drink. Thankfully I'm starting to feel normal again. Dh decided we should leave the kids at my Mom's one more night. I did agree after I talked to Mom who loved having the kids and wasn't ready to hand them over yet anyway. Dh made dinner wanting to say thanks for booking our night last night ....MAN WAS IT high fat. I ate it! I couldn' hurt his feelings by saying sorry today is diet day eat alone so to make a long story short today wasn't much better than last night if not worse. Soooo I'm going to eat BETTER tomorrow and get my rear back on track COMPLETELY on Monday.

T, 10 chapters :eek: You better get crackin

A, I'm only 2 pound under my highest weight EVER.
I'm writing down everything I eat. Someone told me they do that so when they stop losing they can go back and read what foods help them lose. Going to give it a try and see what happens. Plus it helps keep the foods I've eaten in check.

My DD's friend is quickly cleaning the junk out of the house for me. I bought some of those snack size chips bags. 24 bags were in box. I sent 6 over with the kids to my Mom's during the weekend. The girls came back home yesterday afternoon. Today I looked and there were 4 bags left. I was wondering why she came to me this morning and said we are running out of food :lol: Both of my freezers are so full of food I couldn't fit anything else in there if i tried. Most of it is kid freindly foods like chicken nuggets and things like that for the kids. Here I thought this child ate like a bird. Now I'm seeing why. Shes really going to think there is no food when I don't restock the junk. Shes going to call her Mom and tell her we are starving her :lol:

A, I have some adult diet friendly food too. I just made sure I had stuff DD's friend would eat. Shes really picky but when she does find something she likes she eats a ton of it. So far I know she likes chicken nuggets, noodles and CHIPS. I made the girls noodles and Dh & I had sweet and sour chicken. The remaining 4 bags of chips GONE TOOO :lol:

I seemed to have GAINED 3 pounds. Don't ask where it came from. I did have a late night slip up but I still did better than the last few weeks. I did drink a ton of water and maybe the snack was still hanging on from the night before. At least thats what I'm hoping. Will get some exercise today hope that helps with the scale tomorrow.

I'm very excited. I've been waiting to do this for a long time. That saving cash plan I had before didn't work out very good. I ended up using it for gas money so I didn't have to go to the bank.

thabks for the support:hugs: i def think its af coming, but still, i make no excuses.

Yeah me too with the cash. I only use it for when I take the kids out or when I get gas. If not I would spend way more than I want too. Getting cash gives me limits.
I wish A but No they don't. Well they do... you can go for $10 a day as much as you like . I could have gone a few times here or there but each time you go without a membership ya have to sign three forms with dr numbers home phones addresses things like that. It's a pain really.

**** ladies :hug:

Did you see the movie A? Your right A you can't give up...you have came so far...your sooo close to goal. Come on you can do it :cheer: I will be here more for you this time around. I've been feeling awful this last few days as well. I'm getting no where. Thankfully I haven't gained anymore since the last time I was scared off the scale. I'm now in the 250's LOW but I've been there almost all month. That is the highest EVER....My goal this week is to get out of the 250's..as far away as possible:) I will be off to the store here shortly and a few other to do places BUSY BUSY

T, Your back YAY! :D It's so easy to get get off plan isn't it. Poison really? I remember them wayyyyy back when :lol: My older sister was more into them than I was...still love their songs though. The old songs anyway not sure if they have came out with anything new. That's funny dh take DD school clothes shopping :lol: :lol: thats a good laugh. It's not dh thats the problem it's DD. Dh could careless what she wears. He would probably have her go do it herself and she would come back with who knows what. He doesn't even pick out his own clothes. DD is just really really picky with what she wears. Shes at that age when the adult clothes don't fit her right and shes out grown most of the kids clothes so that doesn't make Miss picky's problem any better. Can't be that color ...thats for little kids....do I have to go on? You guys should feel my pain now :lol: Wish me LUCK Please! 3 more wks until back to school. Sorry about school :hug: I hope there is a way to redo those classes
