WW Clubs and Groups - Thursday Chatter for October Pumpkins

10-01-2007, 11:41 AM
Happy October to one and all,
This thread is for those who weigh-in on Thursdays; those who used to weigh on Thursdays; those who are thinking about weighing on Thursdays----you get the idea.
It is a great group and we would love to have more join.

I had a good OP weekend. We ate out twice but I made good choices.
Today, it's time to clean bathrooms and walk on the treadmill. Fun, huh! :D

Now it's y'all's turn to post.


10-01-2007, 06:03 PM
Had weigh in last Thursday and gained 5. I was expecting it though because I had fallen off the wagon. However, I started back OP today and I'm doing great. I'm looking forward to a loss this week. Hope everything is doing great on this wonderful first day of October.

10-02-2007, 10:52 AM
good morning!

Dori, I'm glad you got back OP. You are not alone. he..he..he..

I got lots of cleaning done yesterday. Plus, I walked one mile on my treadmill. I was bushed afterwards. As you know, it's hard getting back into exercise after even a short period off. Mine was almost 6 weeks. :o

Have a great day!

10-03-2007, 06:09 AM
Dori, I think we have all been on and off program lately. We'll get back into it, right?

Tina, I agree about getting back into the exercise. I haven't been to water aerobics since a couple weeks ago with Bob coming home and now TOM. I'm sure I'll be totally pooed next week when I do get to go.

He felt like a new man last night without the oxygen. I was hoping that they would either reduce what he was on or take him off completely. Now we need to call the company to come and pick up all of the oxygen stuff.

He had PT yesterday afternoon. He was tired afterwards, and he was sore last night. He goes again tomorrow, and he also has an appointment with the liver specialist.

I'm volunteering at the soup kitchen today, and then I have a chiro appt. My back feels pretty tight this morning between the shoulder blades.

Hope you are all having a great week!

10-03-2007, 12:48 PM
Hi all,
Chantal, have you left on your Paris trip?????

Susan, you are very quiet.
Amy, Sis, Terry, Maureen, everyone, where are you??? (sorry if I can't remember everyone's name at the moment)

I'm totally exhausted at the moment. I got up early to eat, exercise and shower before going to bathe my mother (before the home health nurse came). I hope the nurse was coming--she didn't call that she wasn't. I waited for an hour. Oh well, maybe she was delayed. They don't give out phone numbers!!!!!

Tammy, what kind of PT is Bob getting? I know you are both happy about the oxygen leaving. It sounds like he's feeling better and better each day.
You, my friend, need some relaxation. I hope the chiro helps you today.

We all need to meet at a spa and relax.:yoga:

10-04-2007, 05:43 AM
Tina, I hope you were able to get some rest yesterday.

Bob is doing therapy to strengthen his upper body and his legs. His strength is about shot. He was used to getting out and walking a few miles every day. Right now, he would be lucky to get in 1/2 a mile before he'd have to quit.

We go to the liver specialist this morning. Lots of questions to ask.

We received another letter from the insurance company. They are going to cover the entire hospital stay! They received more info from the doctors and changed their minds. Relief!

10-04-2007, 10:53 AM
Happy Thursday,
I didn't rest yesterday but will try today. Not much going on.
Since I can't wear sandals all winter, I'm thinking about going shoe shopping today.
Tammy, that is great about the insurance taking care of everything. Those companies!
Please let us know what the liver specialist says.

If you haven't been to the Weigh-In Results thread lately, get over there. Some of us have decided to challenge ourselves this month. Maybe you will want to do it, also.


10-05-2007, 04:00 PM
Tina, how was the shoe shopping??? Hope you find some that were just perfect!

The appt. yesterday with the liver doctor was productive. We met with the physician's assistant, and she was great! She has relatives with the same problem as Bob, and a couple of them have died. She really laid it on strong to him, and I honestly think he appreciated it. She did tell him that he hasn't been fair to me or to our son. He said he realized that. They cut him back on the diuretics, so maybe he'll stop losing weight.

10-07-2007, 12:32 AM
Hey, There is no Weight Watchers Forum anymore.:(::?:(:devil::(
I read something that said so many forums made it too confusing. Hmmm.....
Now, we are under something called, "Diet Central."
Hopefully, everyone can find us. :(

Tammy, I did go shoe shopping but only came home with some black Easy Spirit tennis shoes. I need some dressy flats, too. Maybe on Monday...
How is Bob doing this weekend? Did Tim get to come home or is he working?

Susan, girl, where are you?

Terry, we haven't heard from you in ages.
Dori, are you doing okay?

Some of our group have just disappeared and I miss them.

Maureen, isn't this Canada's Thanksgiving season?

I've been indoors all day with a runny nose and watery, swollen eyes. I'm sure it's allergies.
At least, this has made me very careful about drinking my water. I drank 7 glasses of the stuff yesterday. Today, I got 8 glasses down. I might swim faster than my tracker fish. :lol: :lol:
Everyone have a great Sunday.

10-07-2007, 07:32 PM
glug, glug, glug...
I don't think I'll make it to 8 glasses down today. I'm going for 6! :D


10-08-2007, 06:54 AM
Tina, even one pair of shoes is better than none, right??? Hope you find some others today. Hope your allergies are better today! Tim was miserable with his yesterday morning. The field across the road from here was being combined, so that was most of his problem.

Bob did ok over the weekend. We went to church yesterday morning, but it was a mistake. We had to leave before it was over. It was all he could do to sit up that long with the ride to get there. maybe we'll try again in a couple of weeks. I've been going, but he wanted to go yesterday. He still isn't eating much. He needs to gain 25 pounds at least.

My nephew went with me to the football game on Sat. He used Bob's ticket. It was 90+. My face is still pink! Sunscreen? Who would have thought I'd need sunscreen in Ohio in October?

Tim worked Fri. night and had Sat. night off. He surprised Bob and came home after he finished up with the band stuff after the game! Bob was thrilled! I knew earlier in the week, and I kept my mouth shut!!!! That was VERY hard to do. That was the first they had seen each other since the weekend Bob came home from the hospital. Tim couldn't believe how thin he was. Bob was still swollen when Tim saw him last, and he has lost almost 20 pounds since then. Tim kept encouraging him to eat Sat. night and all day on Sunday. Maybe he'll be up a pound when he weighs this morning. He didn't weigh over the weekend.

Busy week. Chiro appts., Bob's PT, volunteering 3 mornings at local Christian radio station, water aerobics. Also a funeral. The older brother of a friend of mine passed away on Sat. They found out he had cancer about the same time Bob got sick. Kent was only 57. His sister and I have been friends since junior high, and this is her last year of teaching PE where I retired. He was such a wonderful person. I had his daughters when they were 2nd graders. They are both out of college now and working. Bob mentioned feeling guilty because he is still alive and he did the damage to himself. Kent is gone, and he had no control. I think Bob realizes just how lucky he is to be alive.

10-08-2007, 09:27 PM
Happy Monday to everyone! :D

Susan, it doesn't seem like it's been 3 years. My heart still aches for you and Pat. You know we are all here for you.

Tammy, I'm so glad Bob is doing so much better. It's great that he wanted to attend church. His strength will increase and he'll be able to stay for the whole service, in no time. I'll bet it was a nice surprise for Tim to show up.
I know Bob enjoyed it.
Bob will have many emotions. Some will probably take you by surprise.
You are doing such a good job. I'm proud of you!

I was sick with allergy mess all weekend and today. It's some better. Larry took me to the cafeteria for supper. I even ate all veggies. How healthy is that! :lol:


10-08-2007, 10:16 PM
Ok I'm an idiot! :) I just realized I had been posting on the weigh in thread. I think I'm losing it! Maybe I lost it.

Tammy, I do think the trainer is meant to be this time. I will let you know how it goes tomorrow. I have my first appointment with her. Bob sounds like he is getting stronger and stronger. Ya'll are in my prayers.

Tina, Did you get to talk to the nurse? How are you feeling these days?

Did I mention that I'm teaching a sign language class on Tuesday evenings? Then we have the high school homecoming parade on Wednesday. I'm ready for the weekend already.

10-10-2007, 12:35 PM
It's Baack! Mauvaisroux, our forum moderator, put a sticky back on our photo thread. That means that it's always at the top of the list. (For some reason the sticky had been removed a few weeks ago.)
In another week, I'll start our new photo thread and everyone will be hearing from me.:witch:

Tammy, how is Bob today?
Susan, you are one busy person now. Be sure to let us know how the personal trainer works out.
To answer your question, no, I never talked to the nurse because I was so much better on Monday. Today, I don't have any remnants of the "yuck." I'm very glad.

How are we all doing???

10-10-2007, 06:56 PM
Tina, Bob ended up at the doctor yesterday morning. The doctor prescribed a pill to help stop some of the itching and to help him sleep. I think it is helping, so maybe he'll be able to get some rest. He hasn't eaten nearly enough today. He's only up to 1400 calories, and he should have twice that. He has slept quite a bit, so I hope to get him to eat again later. Eating all vegies! WOW!! Glad you are feeling better.

Susan, sounds like a busy week for you!

I had so much fun volunteering for the radio station pledge drive this morning. I received a call from a man who pledged $1000!!!! I told him I loved him! He was cracking up. I also lost the back of an earring during that call. Just got too excited!! lol

I need to go get ready for water aerobics. It is really different weather than Monday when I went. I wore shorts and a t-shirt then. Tonight it is jeans and a sweatshirt. It's a bit nippy out there!!!!

10-11-2007, 12:28 PM
Hi all,
Tammy, I'm so glad Bob got something to help him. I wonder why he is iching so??? It sounds like everything is going along at a good pace, except for him not gaining enough.
You, my friend, are doing such a fantastic job caring for him. It's so good that you retired just at the right time, isn't it!

I'm going to wait until tomorrow to weigh-in. I feel water retention today and I don't know why. Yesterday afternoon I was sooooo tired. After I went to bed, it dawned on me that I never had any diet colas! I was just so busy that I never stopped. Now, that's not like Tina. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have a good one, everyone!

10-12-2007, 11:39 PM
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


10-14-2007, 08:51 PM
Tina, it is a good thing that I am retired. We've talked about that more than once. I can't imagine how I would have managed this physically and mentally if I would still be working. It sounds like the itching could be caused by the problems with the liver, but we're not sure.

We are going to Muncie next Friday for the weekend. Staying at the Holiday Inn Express. There is a pool and a whirlpool. Tim has to work, but when he isn't working, he can come over to the hotel and visit, swim, hang out. Bob said he'd like to go to Red Lobster, so I thought we could go during lunch one day while we are there. He and I could split a meal because I know he won't be eating much. All three of us are looking forward to it. Kramer will be at the doggy hotel again.

Where is everyone????

10-14-2007, 09:48 PM
Hi Friends,

What a week!!! Sinus Infection came back, taught my sign language class, homecoming parade, took Friday off and spent the day with Pat at the State Fair, then went to see his band play at one of the colleges for their peprallys. I've done chores so today... nothing!!!!

Tammy, I'm glad that you are retired too! I think it has done so much for you!!!! Maybe I need too as well? :D

Tina, how was your weekend?

I go for my yearly physical on the 23rd. I have lots to ask her. I sure hope my weight is down. I want to see if there is anyway to cut back on any of my meds.

I'll let you know on Thursday how I'm doing weight wise. I'm down 7 pounds but with TOM I have just been staying the same. I'm hoping to see a loss this week.

10-18-2007, 12:08 AM
Where is everyone--is right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope everyone is well today. Larry and I just returned from a little vacation.
Had a good time. We both needed to get away! I've been so stressed with my mother and he with his stupid boss at work.

10-18-2007, 06:03 PM
Susan, hope you are recovering from the sinus infection. I think we all need to be retired so we could visit and travel together!!!!

Tina, glad you were able to get away. I know we are looking forward to this weekend. Tim called earlier and said he thinks that everyone except those who are working are going home for the weekend since there are no classes on Friday. He's glad we're coming over.

We had our carpets cleaned today. There were a couple spots that I really didn't think would come out, but they did! Once was where the door to the porch opens into the computer room. The rubber stuff on the bottom of the door had made a mess. We had cut off part of it, so hopefully the carpet will stay clean.

Kramer has a record now. Last night Bob was out in the garage with the door open. I had opened the door from the laundry room to say something to him, and apparently I didn't get it closed. Bob was busy and didn't notice Kramer take off. It was quite a while later that we noticed he was missing. He's usually in his little bed under a blanket, so we thought that's where he was. We started looking for him about 9:45. Black dog at night isn't easy to find. About 10:15, I finally called the police. Remember we live in a very small town. I got a recording there, and I had to call the county dispatch number. I told them what was going on, and the guy said, "I think they have him!!" He radioed the policeman here in town, and he said he'd bring him home. I was in tears. About 10:30, the police car pulls in the drive with Kramer in the back seat. Bob was still out walking and looking for him. Something he didn't need to be doing. AFter I took Kramer, the officer then went looking for Bob. Alls well that ends well or something like that. My cousin wanted to know if Kramer had to get mugshots done. my cousin is as weird as I am!!!!

I took Kramer to the doggy hotel then this morning since we were having the carpets cleaned, and he'll be there all weekend. When I told the owner about last night, he said I should have called him and he would have come to help. I guess he and some of his friends do that sometimes! They live about 20 miles from here, but he said he would have done that for his little buddy, Kramer.

10-19-2007, 12:17 AM
Oh Tammy, I feel what you went through last night! I know that was terrifying not knowing where Kramer was.
I can just see little Kramer sitting in that police car. He probably thought he was really something. :lol: :lol: :lol:
I'm glad the police found Bob, too. :D
Y'all will have a great time this weekend.

Susan, I sure hope you are feeling better. You've been going non-stop.

Hey, where are all my friends!
Maureen, where you haven't posted in way too long.


10-19-2007, 09:27 AM
Tina, it really was kind of funny seeing Kramer in the back of the police car with his paws up on the door looking at me. I am so looking forward to getting away. Talked to Tim last night, and he can't wait either. Probably because everyone else has already gone home!! lol

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

10-19-2007, 10:17 PM
I can just picture Kramer!!!! It's horrible to hear that your poor doggie has a record. I would have loved to have seen him riding in the back of the police car. :D Have fun on your trip!!

tina, I am feeling better finally. My sinus infection is better. The new meds are really helping.

I go on Tuesday to the dr. for my yearly checkup. I want to talk to her about how tired I've been lately. Not sure what is going on, I know my thyroid is ok because I just had blood work for that.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

10-21-2007, 06:09 PM
It's a beautiful day here.
The weather is finally feeling a little like fall....just a little. :D

I feel pretty lousy today. I'm getting laryngitis. My throat is swollen and sore, down low. So, I'm drinking lots of hot tea today.

How is everyone else doing? Are y'all having a hard time staying OP? I'm not journaling and that's a "no, no." :o


10-22-2007, 10:44 PM
Tammy, how was your weekend away???

10-22-2007, 10:52 PM
Susan, ask your doctor for me too. I have been totally exhausted even when I haven't done anything. I know part of it is the fibro, and I don't go to the rheumatogist until December.

Tina, I hope your throat is better soon!

I haven't been journaling since we were gone over the weekend. Today I was just too lazy to do it. There is no excuse.

Tim ended up having to work an extra shift over the weekend, so we didn't get to see him as much as we thought we would. We did go to Red Lobster because Bob wanted to go there. He ordered a shrimp cocktail and a glass of water. That's it! Tim, after we were seated, mentioned that the last two times he has eaten there, he has gotten sick. I was ready to get up and move to another table and enjoy my meal. It wasn't an enjoyable meal at all.

After we ate, Tim took Bob back to the hotel, and I went to the mall. I am looking for a couple new dresses. All I found was ugly ones. I did buy a couple sweaters, a tank, and a blouse at CJBanks though. Everything was on sale, so that made it even better.

Our neighbor lady passed away on Friday after we left for Muncie. SHe would have been 96 the end of this week. Such a sweetie. We'll miss her. Her family doesn't live here - one daughter in Florida, one in NY, and her son lives about 40 miles away. They have a lot to do with all of her stuff. I told the oldest daughter that I would take clothing to the county home. I'm sure the residents there would appreciate them. Also the canned goods I can take to a food bank in the area. Not sure what their plans are for the furniture, etc. She has some really nice things. I'm crying again.

10-22-2007, 11:12 PM
Tammy, I'm so sorry about your neighbor. Wow, 96 years old. I'm sorry you had a lousy meal. You'd wanted to have a good time. Bob isn't going to gain any weight by eating so little!
I'd like to buy some dresses, too. There aren't any.

Susan, let us know how your dr. visit goes tomorrow.

Maureen, are you still lurking around? Chantal, where are you?
Amy, let us hear from ya.

10-24-2007, 10:23 PM
I mentioned to Bob tonight that I want to go away again. If he doesn't want to go, I'm going alone. I know I'll be going away with Carol and Melissa in December for a few days, but I want to get away and have a good time NOW!

The dress situation is really stinky, that's for sure.

Tomorrow I have a chiro appointment, and then I have a membership committee meeting for the county retired teachers. Should be an interesting time.

Hope you are all doing well!

10-24-2007, 11:31 PM
Tammy, it sounds like all the stress of Bob being in the hospital has finally gotten the best of you. I'm so sorry! You've had a hard time and deserve to get away.
Boy, I wish we all lived closer. We could find a spa and go relax!

Susan, how was your doctor's appointment?
Chantal, how was Paris?
Maureen, how is Canada right now? Are you having any snow yet?

I am finally feeling better. Today my voice is all back. :) I still get real tired and yucky feeling at night.
Maybe I need a vacation to some place warm. :lol:

10-25-2007, 12:17 AM
my appointment was good. I love my dr. She is wonderful and really listens. She wants to change my medicine so right now we are adding it and then in 3 weeks I go back and she will reduce the other until I'm off of it.

The if I'm still tired she might add something else. She is thinking that I have PCOS, she doesn't care what the endocrinogolist said, she thinks that why I never got pregnant before. She might put me on a low dose birthcontrol to help stablize my hormones.

She did a lot of blood work, checking my B12, iron and a bunch of other stuff. So I will let you know when I know something. I'm just tired of being tired and want to feel good.

10-25-2007, 11:06 AM
Has everyone decorated for Halloween? We don't go overboard like some people around here. I put out one big pumpkin and a couple of signs, on sticks. Some years we have few children and other times, like last year, we have bunches.
This year I see that there are little bags of pretzels to give out. I might buy some for my snacks. :lol:
Susan, that is great news about your doctor being so thorough. I hope she finds something that will tell you what's been going on.
How is your weather? It's actually feeling like fall down here.

10-25-2007, 03:38 PM
Tina, I think you are right about the stress finally getting to me. Today when I left the chiro appt., I was in such a good mood. Everyone in the office is so positive and friendly. Within 5 minutes of walking in the door here at home, I was down again. Bob was upset about something to do with the electric blanket, so he was complaining. He has been moody since, and I've just tried to stay out of his way. I really think that he needs to start going for some counseling, but I don't know how to suggest that it is time. Maybe even an anti-depressant. I thought that before all of his problems started though.

Glad you are feeling better!

I have a scarecrow on my front door, a small garden flag with pumpkins on it, and a real pumpkin by the lamppost. Nothing else except for my little ghost s'more that I bought last year. Where we live we don't have any children coming to the door.

Susan, glad to hear that you are comfortable with your doctor. Sounds like she's going to get to the bottom of things. It's no fun not feeling the best. I'd like to even feel 1/2 best sometimes! lol

Bob and I are going to a nice restaurant tonight here in town. I've been there for lunches, but never dinner because of the cost. I have a coupon book that cost $25. With it, we can buy 1, get 1 free. I told him that we need to take advantage of it since it expires the end of December. There are lots of places that we use it, so it has already paid for itself. Hope he eats!!!!

10-25-2007, 03:53 PM
Dr. Tina here--- :)
If Bob would eat more and have something to do, I do believe that his whole attitude would change for the better. There's my opinion and you don't even have to give me a co-pay. :lol:

Going out for supper sounds super! Larry has been getting us take-out since I've been sick. Last night I fixed low fat sausage, my homemade baked beans and sf Jell-O with fruit. It was good but I was exhausted.
Tonight I might let him get something for us. I've got to go give my mother a shower. That's a struggle when I feel good.


10-25-2007, 09:59 PM

Tammy, I agree with Dr. Tina about Bob. He has to eat to get his strength back and the more he does the better he will feel. You have gone NONSTOP! You deserve a good get away.

Tina, Sorry you've been feeling rotten. I'm glad Larry is taking care of you. I can only imagine how hard it is taking care of your mother. It's fall here too. I love it.

Well, I went to get my new meds and insurance won't approve it until they talk to the dr. So..... the pharmacy faxed something to the dr. and then they said it might be a few days. Insurance..... gotta love thm and gotta hate them

10-26-2007, 05:28 AM
I agree with you about Bob. How can I be tactful and suggest things? We go back to the liver specialist on Nov. 6. I think I'll just try to be tough until then and possibly bring it up then. I also am planning to talk to our pastor. Maybe he can talk to Bob. He's pretty upfront with him about everything that has gone on.

Our dinner was wonderful! We didn't even eat 1/2 of what we ordered. The servings were larger than we expected. We will have 1 and maybe 2 more meals out of it. We did stop eating when we did because the desserts looked yummy. We splurged. Bob had cheesecake, and I had an apple tart. I tried to estimate the calories, and even with everything I ate yesterday, I was still around 1500 calories. Not bad. I'm trying to stay below 1800. I may drop that to 1700 for a while if I don't lose soon.

Tina, I hope things went ok with your mother. Having take out is ok! It is tiring doing meals all the time.

Susan, maybe I could just get away and come to Texas and visit some friends! lol Poo on your insurance!!!

Tim is coming tonight to the h.s. football game where we used to live. IT's their last game. He told me that I should come so I could get away. THEN he mentioned that he is bringing his new friend with him! Yes, it's a girl. His old girlfriend is being pretty nasty I guess. name calling and glaring at the new friend at band practices. Jessica (old friend) has a new boyfriend, so I don't understand why she is doing that. Pretty childish. Hope it doesn't rain, because I want to go!!!

He had mentioned her a couple times when we were visiting last weekend. I guess when she came back from fall break on Sunday, they went out to eat, and they've been spending lots of time together since then. He sounds happy! He said his face hasn't hurt this bad for a long time. He's smiling all the time. lol

10-26-2007, 02:03 PM
Well ladies, I have definitely missed you all. I haven't been OP for quite some time. So yesterday I got the courage to go WI. I'm now at 182 and have decided that now is the time for this weight to come off. Today has been good so far. This morning for breakfast I had WW's Oatmeal and tried a Strawberry Banana smoothie. The smoothie was not good at all.

10-26-2007, 11:47 PM
Hey Dori!! Great to hear from you!!!! I think we've all had those days of not being OP. I lose a couple pounds, then it is forever till I lose any more because I don't stay OP as strict. Glad you had a good day. I just eat regular oatmeal. I've never tried the smoothies,but it sounds like I don't want to!!

Met Tim's new girlfriend at the football game. She is cute, outgoing, seems nice, but I really didn't get to know her of course. Tim seemed very happy. It seems funny seeing him with someone else. He and Jess were together for 3 1/2 years. They left the game at the end of the 3rd quarter because Tim has to work at midnight. My friends and I left too because we were freezing!

Have a great weekend!!

10-29-2007, 12:26 PM
Welcome back, Dori!!!!!! I've missed you. Most of us get off the program at times. And, since I've had this virus, I haven't been exercising. That stinks! :lol:
Tammy, I'm glad you got to meet Tim's new girl. It sounds like Jess wants her fun but doesn't want to give up Tim. I'm so glad Tim is happy.
I hope you didn't get sick in that cold weather.

Susan, where are you girl????

It's Monday! Guess what, I'm seriously thinking about getting a part-time library job. We'll see. I've got to go looking for an interview pants suit. :)


10-29-2007, 09:16 PM
I'm here. The same ole stuff has been going on. However, we got DSL this past Friday. It has taken 10 years for it to get to us. It's not the fastest speed but it's great!!!! It makes a big difference.

Well I got punched in the face today. Right smack on the check bone. Ouch it hurts. My girl had a melt down.

Finally got my medicine approved with insurance and I'll start taking it tonight.

Can you believe that Halloween is right around the corner.

Tammy, I'm glad Tim has a new girl friend. Jessica is just jealous.

Tina, how are you doing?

Dori, glad you are back!!!!

10-30-2007, 10:41 AM
Morning all,
It looks like Suzanne is moving all the WW Weigh-Ins and Countdowns and closing this forum down. She's consolidating things, she says.

I believe that we'll go to the WW Clubs and Groups.
I'm going to try and PM everyone who writes here (or who used to write here) about the move.

Susan, it's great that you finally got your insurance company to pay. I hope you feel better really fast.

Tammy, how are you? I hope you didn't get sick out at that football game. When does Bob go back to a doctor?
How's your weight loss going?

Dori, how are you doing?
Amy, Maureen, Chantal, Terry, Sis, Elaine, everyone----we miss you when you don't post. :(:(:(
Hey, my virus is almost gone. :carrot:

Hi gang. I'm here, just haven't been here. Does that make sense??? Tim and Jess (old girlfriend) had a chat the other evening, and I think things are cool with them now. They are both happy with their new friends. Tim told her that he wants her to be happy, and he thinks she is with the new guy.

Might weight loss is at a definite standstill. I only need to lose 1 lousy pound to get to the end of October goal, but I haven't made it yet. Stinks. I've been journaling faithfully, so that's not the answer.

Bob goes back to the doctor next Tuesday. I'll be glad because there are lots of questions to ask when we are there.

One of the team members for this weekend's Emmaus Walk is ill and can't do the walk. They asked me (just like last April) to fill in for the weekend. I go to the church on Thursday evening and leave on Sunday evening. I plan to not eat all the goodies that they put in front of me!!!!!!!!

Tina, that's great about the p-t job!! I've thought about doing something like that too! Glad your virus is about gone!!!

Susan, glad you have a faster speed now. It does make a difference. Ouch to the punch in the face! Good luck with the new meds!!

Today was the day when I went to my new gyn. I like him, he is thorough and fast---two good qualities! However, I've got to have an ultrasound next week. Yuck!:p

Susan, how is your face doing? I'm so sorry. You need workman's compensation. :(

Dori, are there different flavors to the WW oatmeal? I've never seen it in my stores. Maybe I should look more closely.

Tammy, you always love that Emmaus Walk. What will Bob do while you are gone? Is he still weak? How is little Kramer doing? I hope his "record" hasn't given him a complex. :lol: :lol:

I hope everyone enjoys the day and evening.

Tina, glad you liked the new gyn! Bob will be hanging out here at home while I'm gone this weekend. He is doing much better. Still weak at times, but much better than he was. Kramer will be going to the Pooch Parlor. I don't think he has a complex yet!! lol

Tonight is setup at the church for the weekend, so I need to get my suitcase packed. It's easier and less hectic to take things tonight than it will be tomorrow night when all of the new women (28 of them) will be showing up. My best friend Melissa (Carol is our other cohort in crime) is also on this Emmaus team. Talk about excited!!! I sure hope we behave!! I'd hate for them to send me home. lol

Bob is at therapy right now. I think he'll be doing another month of that at least. I have aerobics tonight. It always feels so good! The new session started on Monday, and we didn't have any new people. We decided to kick it up a notch. Oh my. I know it was good for all of us since we've been doing the same stuff for a while. Still no weight loss though.

I'm really ticked about this 1 pound. Now it will be TOM any time, so it will never go away!!!

No aerobics tonight. Teacher was sick. There are only 5 of us in the class, and a couple of the others weren't going to be there anyway. I'm kind of glad because I took a nap before I went over to the church.

I decided that when my butterfly hits 20, I'm going to have a massage. I had been thinking about it, and it is going to happen for sure.

If I don't get back on here tomorrow, have a great weekend!!

That sounds like a good idea Tammy. Maybe I will too!!!

Tina, Thanks for doing all of the work. I am glad that you are starting to feel better.

I am doing ok. My best friend's grandmother just found out she has lung cancer. This is my friend that lost his mom and sister shortly after Seamus. Also his dad died when he was a kid. She is all he has left.

Susan, I'm so sorry about your friend's gradmother.
Tammy, I hope you have a good time this weekend.
Dori, how are you doing?
Maureen, please come on back and post.
Well, we took Mother back to the ER yesterday. It turns out she has a very bad kidney infection. That's better than alternatives. They'll keep her a couple of days.
I'll get us going over on the WW Clubs and Groups but maybe not until tomorrow.

Hi all,

I'm starting our November thread.
