Hi everyone! http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff26/cjlem/NewYear2.gif

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Let's make this our year to reach out goal or at least get closer to it!!

Now that the holidays are over we can all get more serious - no "holiday treats" to be tempting us! LOL

I am getting weighed and measured this Monday at Curves. Going to really get more strict with myself - I've pretty much stayed the same - but now it's time to lose more!

Our Christmas was very nice - even tho hubby was sick and he decided to share with me! I'm still trying to get over my bout, plus I think I have tendinitus or bursidis in my left arm so am struggling with that. Still walking tho - haven't been doing Curves because of my arm but will be back there come Monday morning! I have walked a total of 769 miles at the Sports Plex since Feb/2007. My goal is to get to the 1,000 mile mark by the end of Feb/2008!

We went downstate for a couple days after Christmas - had to see some of my grandchildren - got to meet my great-granddaughter for the 1st time - she is now 7 months and what a cutie!

Rena: Congrats on the new grandson! Great name - Kaiden. I have a great-grandson whose name is Aiden.

OK ... got to get busy here .. am taking down all the decorations. I always hate taking them down and putting them away - but it's got to be done.

Hope to hear from all of you plus any newbies that would like to join us!

This is going to be A GREAT YEAR!!

I meant to mention my resolutions for 2008! They are pretty much the same old stuff - drink my water, keep on walking, stay with Curves -- but I am going to work harder at my diet so instead of just maintaining I can lose and I am going to report in here at least once every day! Anyone else??

Love, CJ

Hello CJ and Happy New Year to you also. I'm hoping in 2008 to rid this excess weight and also drink my water I have to really motivate my self in the exercise department I always mean to but never do it so I'm challenging my self to do this . A little harder in the winter . I feel as though I can do this. I did gain over Christmas so now time to buckle down and do this.I will try to check in once a day also. Have a great week. Rena

Hello again:

I had a great Christmas and new Year. I did not gain weight but did not lose either. I have been going to the gym on a regular basis since October and I have not lost an ounce. It goes up and down the same 3 pounds but it does not go below. I know what the problem is I just dont seem to know what to do about it.....I guess I do know what to do...stop eating so much and that would take care of it. I just dont understand how I could have increased my activity from nothing to what I am doing and not lose anything. It is just so frustrating.

I have actually increased my intensity at the gym. I am now running. Its not fast but it is measurable. I run on the treadmil. I get at least 3 kms of running every time I go. I struggle to do it and its never pretty to see all that fat bouncing around, but I keep at it. I feel that I should see some results. I have not lost anything!!! However that is not to say that I am going to give it up. I will eventually lose weight for now I will concentrate on sticking to the program. I need to do this for me. I drag my *** out the door three times a week. Some days I would much rather stay in bed. It was pretty damn cold here a couple weeks ago. Right now its an early thaw and it feels like spring out. I have managed to get out and walk some outside too.

I hate exercise but its going to help me stay focused. I will work on the food aspect as time goes on. And in the meantime I will stick to my routine of going to the gym and hopefully it will all fall into place.....instead of just fall.....hahaha...

Have a good day ladies, I am off to the basement to do some more sewing on a quilt that I just started for my baby sister. It will be a late wedding gift but it gives me something to do other than eat.

Hang in there and fight the good fight.

Dallas.

Hi All,
Sorry I haven't posted since before the Holidays. So much going on since than. First the holidays came and than so much to do to write my Holiday Christmas Letter and send out the Christmas cards, than of course came the Holiday decorating, inside and out and thank goodness helped with that, and of course the cleaning with company coming. :stress: Our Air Force daughter, Tracy, husband, Brett and little baby Tyler came a few days before the New Year from Illinois, and stayed almost a week, which was great, got to see 9 month old Tyler and spend some good Grandma time with that cute little boy. So we had a great New Years Eve party so had much planning, shopping and cooking for that. But Tracy was a really big help there and it all got done, had a great holiday, meant to post but somehow things kept getting in the way, on the go so much. We all went to the Indianapolis Auto Show, Son, Dan, Tracy, Kelly and their families, but Air Force son, Alan didn't come this year, he couldn't take any leave, since he just go to Andrews AFB from Korea not too long ago. So we sure missed him but maybe next year. We had fun anyways, it is always great to be with the family during the holidays. :gift2:

I have a new job now, till May/the end of the school year, and that is I am babysitting for little 2 1/2 month old Grandson, Brandon. I was honored when my daughter, Kelly and her husband, Brian had asked me to do this and is even insisting on paying me whatever they would pay at the daycare cause she says she would have to pay a babysitter anyways and that helps us out. But you know that money will probably go back into my new Grandkids, who me spoil them-NOT ME-well not MUCH! :cloud9: So now I am at my daughters and am staying in their guestroom they have for me from Sunday night till Friday when either her or her husband get home and than head back home about 35 minutes away. She is a teacher and goes in pretty early to work in Indy so I don't want to have to drive her every morning and get up at the butt crack of dawn so this works out well. Brandon can stay home in his nice warm bed and Grandma is having a ball with the little guy. I am really enjoying this so much and don't know why I didn't have Grandkids first. :twirly: LOL He is so cute and is now watching one of those Little Einsteins DVD's they say really help kids learn. When Kelly told me how he watched them I didn't believe it but he just loves them and is in his little bounch seat clutching his favorite toy, his bear and watching intently. Boy they never had them when my kids were little. The things they have now for the kids. I don't think they even had baby monitors when my kids were little, it was called run up the steps and peek in and listen to see if they were fussing or crying. LOL Yes, I am really enjoying this so much. :cp:

It sounds like everyone had a great holiday. I had a wonderful one, but am soooooo glad the holidays are FINALLY over. No wonder New Years is my favorite holiday, now I know why. It is because the holiday season is over and I am done done done with all there is to do. No I am not a bah humbug, I really do love Christmas and everything it entails, it is just because it is so exhausting for me. Now it is 2008, can you believe that? And I look forward to it being a good year for me and for all of you's as well. :sunny:

CJ-Sorry you got sick and hope that you are feeling so much better now. I know you really loved going downstate and being able to see your Grandkids there, especially it was great that you got to see your new Great Grandaughter for the first time, how wonderful for you and Dick. Good job on all you have walked at the Sportsplex, wow that is such a great accomplishment. :running: I am with you on the serious part of this losing weight. This will be our year right CJ? We will all do it this year! :lucky:

Rena-Wow that is fantastic that you have a brand new Grandson. :congrat: I'll bet Kaiden is a cutie for sure. Hope you are doing great this new year. I know whatever you will do you will be successful at it. I hope we all are. Keep on posting because we need each other to get where we want to be this new year.

KimV-Yes, I still do work for H & R Block. I was not going to do it this year, the Office Manager I have loved and worked with for years got a regular full time bookeeping job left suddenly cause this great job came up that she had been presuing for the last couple of years. She was going to work with me and just let me work an occasional Saturday or Sunday to keep my foot in the door with 11 yrs under my belt this year. But now she is gone and I am already hired and went to training so I don't want to put them in a spot, I think I am the only receptionist they have in our office so far. So I guess I will baby sit for Brandon from Monday thru Friday and work Saturday and Sunday at Block. It will only be bad during peak, probally not till Feb/March than I will be done and have the weekends off hopefully.I am not sure who the new office manager will be, will not be in a hurry for them to call me. I know I will hear from them soon. I am so glad your got your computer up and running again, and congratulations on the great grades you got for your classes. I know you worked so hard at your studies. :comp:

Dallas-That is great that you stayed the same during the holidays. I wish I could do that, I of course gained, but am working on getting that weight off. I can feel your frustration about not losing any weight, but at least you have the exercise down pat and know what the problem is with your eating and it sounds like you will be doing all the right things this year so you should be seeing results and all your hard work will pay off. Good luck to you! :dust:

Well better get going, the baby is still sleeping, but have some things in the laundry and have to pack to go back home today when one or the other comes home. Yaaaaaaaaaaa just think I have a couple of days home, I miss my kitties and of course my husband, but he would say that is the order that I miss them. But I know better! :dance:

Take care guys, talk to you later. I will try to post more when the little one is taking a nap and when I can. I tell you this is fun for me but I am tired. I have to go home to rest and recooperate for a while. :yawn: :tired:

Take care talk to you soon! Sassy Sharon :joker:

Hey there everyone:
Another day another few calories burned at the gym. I dont usually go on the weekends but a severe case of stuff my face last night had me up and at it this morning. I will meet again with the trainer in a couple weeks. I have not lost weight but I know my body is feeling it. I can pull my belt in at least on more notch, my clothes seem to hang a bit better so there has to be some good things coming from all this work.

Some days Its a real challenge to haul my *** out the door to get to the gym but if I dont it will not get done. Dave ( my significant other) will go out and brush off the car and even get it warmed up for me on the cold days. He will make sure that there are not any reasons why I dont go. He however is also a culprit when it comes to eating badly. He is fairly slim, he can eat whatever he wants and he usually does. But that makes it much easier for me to eat the not so good things.

I am hoping that this routine of going to the gym will continue once I get back to work. I will not worry abou tthat now. For right now I have a full schedule. I start piano lessons this week and I cant wait. Its very exciting. I have always wanted to play. I have also made some inroads into the quilt that I am making for my baby sister so that keeps me away from food too..

So until next time.. .....enjoy.

Dallas.

Hey everyone:

yes losinitin07 we are expecting snow here too. I got to the gym before it starts. Usually when the weather system moves up the eastern seaboard we get hit too. Most times not as bad as you guys do but there will be snow to shovel for sure.

We have been spoiled lately. There is no snow left. We had some record highs lately....as high as 15 C. I am not sure what that is converted....all i know is that it was warm enough to go without a coat....the snow just melted and dissappeared. Then we had a pretty heavy rain storm on friday night....it seemed like spring. However the cold weather is upon us again. And once again snow is on the way.

I think that the solution to my not losing weight is to tape my mouth shut. I cant seem to stop eating. However I am not eating any more than I did before I started my exercising...if anything I am eating a bit less. But still no weight loss. I figure I really have to take a close look at what exactly I am eating I think I may have to keep a diary of what it is I am eating. Perhaps I can shave some unnecessary calories off my menu. Its so hard to eat properly..........

Anyway hope everyone had a good weekend, and that the week ahead is a good one.

Dallas.

Just stopping by to say hi ,I'm really trying hard to watch what goes in my mouth I have been in denial about what I eat for 2 days I have cut way back on my sugar and I noticed that I sleep better and have more energy I don't feel so blahh,I also realize that stress and my emotions play a big part in the role of what I eat ,I'm hoping with this eye opener that I can stop before I do something stupid, now if I could motivate my self to exercise I then may get some where. Hope all is well with every one have a great week.
girlontheloose66 - keep up the good work with the gym , it will pay off for you .
Hello CJ-Sassy-and Kim (hope I did'nt forget any one I did'nt mean to if I did miss ya's hope all is well)

Hello everyone again:

Well another week gone and no weight gone. It is very discouraging to step on the scales day after day and see that there is no change. I feel great I am stronger but still not any thinner. I swear that It is so easy just to say the heck with it and to give up but I am not ready to do that either.

I have been really busy . I have gotten some work done on the quilt for my sister. Hopefully she will get it before her first wedding anniversary. At least now I am accomplishing something. Most of the blocks are about 50% done. I have also started learning to play piano. That is very intimidating. The teacher tells me that I should not stress over it but I do. I so want to learn but it seems to be very daunting. I will go again next week and hopefully it will get a bit easier. I have been practicing. I am sure that my family is tired of hearing that one song repeated (badly) over and over.

So this winter is shaping up to be a busy one for me. Before I know it I will be back to work. However spring seems like a long ways away today. Its windy and snowy and raining all at once. Its not a fun day out ther at all.

Well evreyone good luck and keep up the battle.

Dallas.

Hi ya all ... sorry for not posting more but have been sooooo busy .. my oh my the time is flying by .. we're almost into February! We have tons of snow and it's going to get really really cold this weekend! Today was a snow day so no school so had my little Carley all day.

Dallas:
Don't get discouraged about your weight - I do know how it feels I'm a very slooooow looser myself! Did you get yourself measured when you joined the gym? Could be you could be loosing inches. If you didn't I would advise you to have someone take your body measurements. I have only lost 10 1/2 lbs in a years time - but, have lost 23 1/2 inches! Don't give up - keep on keep on! You'll get there!

Rena:
I have to laugh at your post about Christmas - I also have my Christmas 2008 shopping started! LOL ... I have a large family to buy for also - even tho I have cut back considerably - I still buy a lot!

Sharon:
How wonderful that you get to be with Brandon all week! You lucky grandma you! Yes, it was wonderful to be able to see the grandkids - or a few of them ... and especially wonderful to meet my great-granddaughter finally! She's a cutie!

Well, off to bed with me ... I think I've had some kind of stomach flu this week and it's got the best of me .. but, of course it didn't stop me from going to curves and walking! I have 183 miles to go to reach my 1,000 mile mark at the Sports Plex and if I get there by the end of February it will be in one year!

Talk to ya all real soon!

Love, CJ

Hello every one it has been a good week I lost 3 pounds I'm trying really hard it has not been easy.

Take care Rena

01-21-2008, 02:42 PM
Way to go losinitin07!!!! I am sure that I have not lost even 3 ounces but I think that I may have lost some inches. I am going to get my trainer to measure me when we meet again this month. I have been continuing with the gym and I am sure that there has to be some progress somewhere. It is impossible that I work that not have results somewhere.

It is easy to give up and some days its even easy to skip one portion of my work out. I do a cardio section and then move to the weight room. I have a list of exercises that I do. I dont always do them all or in order it depends on how busy it is, but I manage to get my 40 minutes of cardio in and then at least 3 of my other exercises done. That gets my other muscles working. I know that things are tightening up in some places, and that gives me the push I need to keep going.

I am off to work tomorrow and it may be a very long day. At least 12 hours.......and then again on Wednesday I will get back to the gym. Next week I will meet the trainer again and we may discuss changing my routine some to target different muscle groups.

Until next time. Have a great Day.

Dallas.

Hello again everyone!

I finally have some good news to report.....nope did not lose any weight...but I must be losing something because today as i was getting ready to go to work I picked up a ring that was laying in my jewelry drawer and without thinking slipped it on my finger...and surprise, surprise it fit..that particular ring has not been able to go on my finger in a long time. I was very happy to say the least. So if if nothing else I can say that my fingers have lost some weight!!!!! Or at least toned up some...hahaha.

I guess that means that I should take some measurements. I am encouraged by it all though so the next step is to have my waist line slim down. I am very encouraged and will hopefully make it out to the gym again tomorrow. There is bad weather on the way so I am not sure if It will be fit to get out. I hope its not so bad as I have my second piano lesson tomorrow too. I have been practicing every day. ONly missed one day because I was very busy. I dont know how I will be able to handle everything once I get back to work. As it is I have not worked on my sisters quilt in a few days. Perhaps tomorrow I will get back at it. I think it will turn out nice. I am very excited to see how it will all come together. I have not really made a quilt in a couple years. I have made some lap quilts that we donated to a local home for the aged. I suppose 5 of those is equivalent to a couple full sized quilts. I have also made a couple wall hangings and just last week I made an apron with pockets in it for my neighbor. So I suppose I do keep busy

Anyway I am off for now. Good luck and keep at it.

Dallas.

Hi guys, how is everyone doing? It looks like pretty good from what I see. It is another year and I feel that 2008 will be the year we all get to where we want to be, I can feel it.

CJ-How are you feeling? I hope your stomach flu is a thing if the past now and you are up and running. Somehow I just knew you have started your Christmas shopping. Not me, I will start thinking about it hopefully early this year, since I have a couple of Grandkids now, maybe around Halloween. LOL WELL for me that is early, ok maybe I will try for July or August, but don't hold me to that. :tantrum:

Dallas-Wow that is great about your ring, so if your fingers are smaller I'll bet you are smaller elsewhere as well. Good job on going to the gym like you have been. :cp: I envy you to be able to make a quilt, I am all thumbs when it comes to any sewing or craft type things. I am sure it looks beautiful. :D

Rena-I agree with you with the cutting out sugar gives you more energy and find it to be true when I sty to stay away from it. :dance: That is a great idea to make your own soup, it is the wintertime and soup really hits the spot for me. I don't mind the canned soup's when I don't have the time to make it home made, but the soup we make ourselves taste so much better don't they? :hun: Way to go on the 3 pounds lost! :bravo:

Welcome ScorpioSunshire and hope to hear from you more often. We are a great group and you are so welcome to our little group. Looking forward to your introduction so we can get to know you better. :welcome2:

Well will post this now and post again and let you know how things are going for me weight wise. I am still at daughter, Kelly's house babysitting during the week and things are going great I think. We all get along really well and so far this is working out really well. I love seeing the little guy so much, Brandon is getting so big and I am really enjoying him, he is getting out of that newborn stage, being over 3 months and I love seeing him laugh, coo, grab things and interact with me. :yay:

Talk to you later, Sassy Sharon :cloud9:

Oh gosh .. I'm so sorry for not getting in here more often -- we've been so busy lately I haven't hardly even been on the computer! We've had blizzard storms this week and there has been no school so of course we have had our 6-yr old Carley all week ... she keeps us really on the go! This is going to be a quickie but just wanted to report in.

Rena - 5 lbs! Way to go! Keep up the good work!

Got to run but I promise I will be back soon and will post longer.

Hello everyone again:

It has been a busy week here for me. I did not make it to the gym on monday due to another winter storm. We did get out for a walk in it though, it was hard walking, the snow was like walking in sand.....a good work out for the calves.

I met with my trainer again this week. She did not measure me, but commented that I looked smaller to her. :celebrate: I did not feel smaller as a matter of fact I had, had a big lunch and it was a day that I felt very bloated....I tried to do a bit of running on the treadmil, but that did not work, I swear I could see my *** bouncing as I was running....it was not a good day to be at the gym. However once i got over that my trainer and I discussed different options, and we decided that I would continue what I was doing in the weight room but we added a new group of exercies using the stability ball. :exercise: I think I just needed a little something to change up the routine.

Today when I went to the gym I did my usual cardio and then did the new workout. It was good and I have a good basis on which to expand. The stability ball is working the same muscle groups but in a different way and I think that will be good for me. Still no weight gone for me but I am feeling good about it.

I also went today and purchased a new sports bra...gotta keep the girls in line. :p:) I had gotten one a few weeks ago but today it caused some chafing and I have some pretty sore spots under my arms. So off I went to the local bra shop and saw the "bra doctor".....unfortunately canada's healthcare system does not cover this particular proceedure and so I left there with the girls safely tucked into a new bra and my pocketbook a lot lighter. On monday I will know if it was a worthwhile purchase. I certainly hope so. I spent a weeks worth of groceries on a bra......:rolleyes:

Anyway I have been keeping busy outside the gym. I have got all the blocks finished for my sisters quilt. Next I will put them together for the quilt top. However my favorite sewing machine is in the shop, so I am waiting for that to get done so I can get it all together. I am so far pleased with the results. It is far from done though.

I am a bit stuck on my pianon lesson this week. My teacher gave me a nice piece of music for me to work on...."put it together" was what she told me, but did not tell me how...so here I am really trashing a beautiful piece of music. I guess I will just do the best I can and hopefully she will help me next week.

So on that note I will sign off and maybe go practice a bit more....keep up the good work everyone. I love reading all about your life......

Dallas.

girlontheloose66
02-10-2008, 06:57 PM
Yep sure is lonesome here. I am still plugging away at the gym and not losing an ounce. I know it has everything to do with what I am eating but feel powerless to change it. I go to the gym three times a week I even pay a trainer!!!! And I have nothing to show for it. I am developing some nice muscles under all the fat but still no loss of weight. I think I am losing inches though. However when I go back to see my doctor she will not be interested in inches she is only interested in pounds. I have not lost anything but fast losing hope that I may ever lose anything but patience.

However once I figure out how to stop stuffing my face I may have some real results to show here. I would be so estatic if I had lost 5 pounds like you losinitin07. I would be sooo happy to be 175. Thats the ultimat goal for me. Thats what I weighed before I had my kids. I would just love to be that weight........I am afraid I will never see that again....

Well I guess i can always dream.....

Keep up the fantastic work ....I will keep up going to the gym,, at least until I get back to work. It may be a bit more of a challenge to get to the gym then. I am planning to try to work it into my schedule......

Until next time

Hi everyone - I'm still around! Just been so darn busy -- lots of snow days with these darn storms coming thru - I think I've seen my 6 yr old Carley more than her parents!! LOL

Still doing Curves - still walking! Hang in everyone - we'll lose these lbs yet!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY !!!!!!!

Sorry this is so short - I'll try to stay longer tomorrow! Just wanted you to know I'm still around and thinking of you!

Later...
Love, CJ

Hello again everyone:

More snow storms here this week kept me from the gym on Monday but I managed to get there before the storm on wednesday. Enough with winter already !!!

Still no weight loss but my boyfriend says that he can see a difference in me...I hope he is not saying that to make me feel good.

Anyway other than the weather not much changes here. I did get engaged on Valenties day !!!!!! We have not set a date or anything yet but that will come...So it looks like I will take the plunge again....hopefully number two is better than the first one. Lord knows that ended badly.

Hope everyone had nice time on valentines day and can you belive it I avoided chocolate that day....must have been distracted by my new diamond ring.....lol.

Until next time keep up the battle.

Dallas.

I am here Rena, though I have not checked in recently. I am still slugging at the gym. I have not lost anything in weight but I was just visiting some co workers that have not seen me in a while and they see a change in me. So that is good news. I feel better and I know that I am stronger for all my exercise. I am wondering how I will fit my exercise routine into my work schedule once I get back to work. I have recieved my notification of recall to work so that is good news. The bad news is that its shift work and will be harder to work my exercise into that schedule.

I am meeting again with the trainer in a couple weeks so perhaps I will get my measurments taken again to see if there is really any results or if its all in my mind.

Congrats on the new grand daughter. Babies are sooo precious.

Until next time.....keep up the battle.

Dallas.

Hi girls

This again will be a short one as I can barely see to type right now .. but have been thinking of you all and wanted to say hello

I've been hit with the nasty flu once again - hard this time - I have been down in bed for the last 4 days! I just got up to have some tea and attempt to say hello.

Congrats to Rena on the birth of her grandaughter!

Congrats to Dallas on your engagement!

Just before I got hit with this darn flu I finally made my 1,000 miles at the SportsPlex and got my jacket and 1,000 mile club patch!

I promise that just as soon as I am better I will get in here more and post.

Later..
Love, CJ
