Good evening everyone! :wave: Just thought I would check back in and see if everyone was feeling good about their accomplishments today. I hope this is working for you, 'cuz it sure has for me.

We got long, so don't forget to check for all the messages on the last thread. I have my pages set for 30 posts and there were still several on the second page, so don't miss out on them.

I did make the nice dinner of grilled/microwaved Cod. If you guys haven't gotten it yet, Costco has individual portions frozen and then sold in a bag. The cod had 5 portions and I bought salmon and there were 7 filets in that bag. Very, very good and it didn't stink up my house. One of the ladies at WW on Monday said she does her fish on the George Forman. I haven't braved that, but just might come warmer weather when I don't want to turn the oven on anymore. Although I do like my salmon grilled on the bar-b-q. I wrap it in foil and throw it on the grill. Well, enough of my lack of cooking skills! :(

Katrina, Mary and LuckyLadyBug: Don't you all feel so much better now. Three whole accomplishments for the day! Woohoo for all of us!!!

p.a.: Welcome aboard! I'm glad you found your way over here. We're an eclectic group (hey girls, how do you like that description? :lol: ). Different sizes, different shapes, different programs. But the one thing we all have in common is caring about each other and sincerely enjoying newcomers that stop in for a glass of water and/or choose to stay for a gallon of it. Hope you'll be here often.

Well girls, time for bed. :yawn: Tomorrow is another day. Nitey nite!

Lucky,

Spongebob squarepants is a cartoon on Nickelodean. He's a sea sponge living in a pineapple on the bottom of the sea. He's a fry cook--crabby patties. His best friends are Patrick (pink starfish) and squidward (?) an older grouch. It grabbed me because its silly but has adult storylines. It grabbed me like Seinfeld for some reason.

Completed day3 of exercise. Yahoo. Eating was OP too. Time for sleeptime. It's been a long day.

Goodnight,
Malia

Hello strangers. Remember me? It is 3:30 a.m.
I have been VIOLENTLY ill and this is the first time I could get out of bed (and/or bathroom) long enough to let you all know I have not disappeared off the face of the earth.

I brought my dad home from the hospital at 10am and had an ambulance taking him back by 10pm. Both he and my mom are still in the hospital. I just pray they don't get this flu bug from me. I don't think ... I know... that neither will survive it. I am soooo worried. I was not sick around them.. I came down with it after I got home... but who knows.

I have not read any posts.. just barely well enough to get this note out.
I hope to be back in a few more days.

2Cute Thanks for checking in so we don't worry. Sorry about your folks and I will send a prayer there way that they are better soon.

Malia Thanks for the explanation. I loved Seinfeld but a sponge living in a pineapple on the bottom of the sea AND he is a fry cook might be a stretch. I will have to ask my one niece because she may have watched it.

Thin So three things a day....I had better pay attention today!!!:lol:
#1 I got up when I didn't want to:p

I saw Luther Vandross (sp) on some show last night and he has gained and lost over 100 lbs many times. As you know he is also a singer who has made millions and has many platinum albums. When asked about his greatest accomplishment he said he is most proud of this weight loss. The interviewer was looking for some song or event he did so when he said weight loss I think they were surprised. He said what works for him is absolutely NO sweets, bread, pasta, and rice. He said if eats any of them even in the smallest amount it sets off a binge. He lives on protein and vegies.

That's my news for 6:45AM.

Welcome, pa..

OHHHHHH...Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS!
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he!
SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS!
His nautical nonsense be something you'd wish
SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS!
So drop on the deck and flub like a fish!
SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS, SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS, SPONGE BOB SQUARE PANTS...
SPONGEY BOB.......... SQUARE PANTS!!
HAHAHAHAHA


Yes, I KNOW I need a life!

oooooh I'm pissed! I just got bounced for too many smilies!

And do you know what my immediate feeling was?? CHOCOLATE! How scary is that? Gee, I'm not programmed to deal with aggravation by eating, am I? Ah well, the important thing is that I did NOT scour the house like a heat-seeking missile, looking for a morsel of my dark master! :T

So, Malia...Sponge Bob AND Seinfeld?? GET OUT! We are definitely on the same wave length! They are practically the only shows I see with any regularity!

Lucky...Even a jersey tomato like me know the bump is on the WEST side! No more lutfiske for you! :o

Thin, thanks for the great idea...we need to acknowledge our successes, no matter how big or small, and pat ourselves and each other on the back...DAILY! :wave: PATPATPAT!

2cute...I will take my hug back for now...don't want to squeeze you too tight! :eek: Please feel better, I miss your funny posts! Hope Mom & Dad are doing better too.

Grannie, take that phone off the hook, hang up your paint brush and go have some sex on the beach! ;) You deserve a break today!

Welcome aboard, p.a. There are a number of Weight Watchers here, so feel free to ask anything...On second thought, maybe I need to ask YOU a few questions...16 lbs since Jan?? WOW! Oh, one more thing...you're worried about goofing up...around THIS goofy crowd?? PUL-EEZE!! :dizzy:

Hi to everyone else...where are you guys?

Three things to be thankful for this Thursday...

Daffodil shoots outside my front door! :)
Sunny skies today and 60 degrees! :D
YOUSE GUYS! (pardon my Joisey) :lol:

Have a great day!!

PS...Just to set the record straight, I really don't speak that way, nor, for that matter, do 90% of New Jerseyans!
This has been a public service announcement from the Garden State!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Now I know I picked the right place to be.....I see everyone is posting three things to be thankful for each day...what a good idea! Here's my list for the day:
1. Thankful for losing another pound.
2. Thankful for having the afternoon off (unexpected)
3. Thankful for having this great board!

Have a good night everyone!

Ok, now I am double mad because I just lost my post! Oh well, I guess it's for the best because the only thing you guys would have heard was me whining. :( This cold/flu thing that has had its grips on my son decided I was to be the next victim. Should be real easy to count my points for yesterday........."0"! Yep, that's right. Didn't eat a thing all day yesterday. Actually, yesterday is kind of a blur to me. My throat has been so sore it's unbelievable. It's the kind that when you swallow, one of three things must happen: 1. You whimper 2. You yell......LOUDLY or 3. You make a face like you just swallowed an entire lemon. Not good. When I came home Wednesday morning, I got in the bed and stayed there till I picked up my son at school. The only time I woke up was when my fever broke and I woke up in a pool of sweat and I changed clothes. My DH took my temp once and it was 103.6. Then after I picked him up at school, came back home and got back in the bed and stayed there till 10:00. I called into work to see if someone could cover my shift and they got someone to cover till 3:00 am, but then I had to go in. Oh well, I guess 4 hours is better than 8. See, now I'm typing my new post, and all you've heard is whining. Oh well, at least I'm consistant. :^:
I really can't think of anything I accomplished yesterday, so I'll have to stick with today.
1. Got out of the bed
2. Ate
3. My eyes are open
Now, those may sound like stupid things to have accomplished today, but after the day I had yesterday, I am thankful for all of them! :D
2cute: Maybe it's your fault that I'm sick. You could have sent me a "computer virus". He he. Just kidding sweety. You have been on my mind, what there is left of it and I am hoping your parents are better. We miss you.
Grannie: Thanks for the "Better than Sex" recipe. It sounds really good. Of course at this point, anything sounds better than sex. Wish I could convince DH of this though. :dizzy: He thought I called into work just so I could stay home with him. Good Lord.
Kat: You are absolutely hilarious girl! You always crack me up with your post. You work thirds too, huh? Totally different world. You sound just like me. Oh and by the way, LOOOOVE Sponge Bob too.
Malia: Awesome workout program you got going there. Hope I can get that disciplined one day.
Andria: Sorry about the tooth. I know the feeling about the insurance though. My husband changed jobs recently and we lost our insurance through his old employer and he's not elegible for new insurance yet, so we have "nothing" and it is a very scary thought.
Baylee: Thanks for your words of comfort. It's nice when someone knows what your going through. People that don't have a child with asthma don't truly know what it's like and I wouldn't wish it on any child, or adult for that matter.
TT: Can't wait to get me one of those new bras and thanks on the info about the one without underwire. My "guys" are a little on the big side too and just can't stand all that poking! :lol:
Luckylady: Staying the same is a bummer but.........GAINING is worse! :D
P.A.: You certainly have chosen the right group to join. Don't know if I've ever met such a caring and hilarious group of individuals. They are here with you for everything. Come on in and come often.

Oh and by the way, and I guess I should have posted this at the top instead of it being an afterthought. Shame on me. :o
I went to WI on Monday and (drumroll)......................................

I lost 5 pounds!
Yep girls, that's 15.5 pounds in 2 weeks. I was thrilled although my leader says if I keep on losing like this, she's gonna make me eat more. I'd just like to see her try. And besides, I'm just working the program and exercising. Hope you are all having a wonderful day and hope I didn't miss anyone. Just talking to you guys has made me feel better. ;)

Hi all
Queen bee:Congrats on the loss. Hope you feel better soon. I had that bug two weeks ago.The recipe is good I have to make it again.

Kat: I couldn't find a beach in my area today shoot:lol: :devil:

Today has been good except for eating.It started out good I had Kashi for breakfast and a lean cuisine meal for lunch with an apple but then DH bought some girl scout cookies and guess who opened them. They were calling to me so loud oh well tomorrow is another day. I have ate a lot off program this week due to painting I'm hoping that the extra moving will help.

Well Dh and son is through with dinner so I have to wash dishes.:wave:

I don't buy it Kat , I know many people from Jersey and YOU DO TO TALK THAT WAY!!!!!

Yes, Baylee, I have eaten lutifisk. Notice the word have because if my Dad isn't looking I pass on it. :lol:

Tina You have me worried. My throat has been dry and making me cough for two days. I sure hope you didn't give me what you had. :(

AND once again I am forced to say:

CONGRATULATIONS

You go girl!!!!!!! I need your inspiration.

Off to look for some protein recipes...

HI gals,
sounds like this group has alot in common with me. I joined WW 14 months ago at 344 lb. and have lost 65 lbs. so far. This week I talked myself into doing my Richard Simmons takes 3 days a week. I just hope I don't gain muscke like the last time and gain 7 lbs. in 1 week from exercising. I know it'll come off faster if I exercise reg. Hope to hear from new friends,soon...

Sue ;) :smug: :D

Hi all,

Don't have but a minute or two, but I actually had a moment to stop by, which hasn't happened since the weekend.

Work is still stressful and extremely busy. I barely have time for lunch, but I have unfortunately been making too much time once I get home. Food is on and off. I am still exercising daily, but not enough to combat the food.

I expect a gain this weekend, but will deal with it.

I haven't had time to read posts, so I can't respond to anyone, but I hope all is well.

Hopefully, things will get easier at work and I can find more time to post.

Just know that you all are with me all the time in my heart.

Susie

Hi everyone,

Welcome Sue. Amazing weight loss to you and QueenB. I must be building muscle this last month because the scale shows +1 or -1.

2cute, I miss you. Hope you feel better soon. And your parents too.

Kat, did you hear they were thinking of cancelling spongebob? I signed the internet petition (hee hee) just in case. Tomorrow night, new episode.

Three accomplishments:
1)exercised this morning even though I was upset from work the day before
2)bit my tongue around my boss today
3)drank gallons of water (exaggerating of course)

How was the skating? Surprise conclusion. Go USA.

NITE NITE,
Malia

Hey hey hey...whattya say?

I just came in from work, now I'm off til Sunday night! :D :D :D I have been doing very well, and I'm very proud of myself! One of my BIGGEST accomplishments has been not eating, grazing would be a better word, between meals. I usually pick at what I'm cooking, or eat what's left on the kid's plates, or nibble on cookies here and there...AND I have been eating only when I am hungry! MAJOR accomplishment!!

I have been exercising daily too. Last night, I was all set to go to the gym for a kickboxing class. I'm on my way out the door and realized that my pass is on my keyring , in my car, at work, with my hubby...:( No problem, I took a brisk walk around the neighborhood instead, which was nice because it was a lovely night...temp in the 50's, bright stars in the sky. Previously I might have thought, nah, I really don't have the time, tomorrow I'll do something...and we all know how sometimes TOMORROW has a way of not showing up! But do you know why I really did it?? So that I could have something to come back and post as my accomplishment for the day! So that's mine! Oh yes, that and finally going to the jewler for dh who asked me in January to bring two watches to be fixed! :lol:

Welcome, mom4! Congratulations on your weight loss!! If you don't mind my saying, don't base so much emphasis on the scale number, if it's muscle that you are gaining! That's what you want! The more muscle gained, the more fat burned! Thanks for reminding me...I want to take my measurements so that I have a starting point...and some scary numbers to look back upon when I have posted my "AFTER" picture! ;)

Hi everyone else...I'm falling asleep, so I'll sign off for now...Fun Friday, is it? I'm taking my daughter for a haircut tonight, maybe I can wrangle a pedicure, at least a waxing of the brows for myself! :o This afternoon, I'll take a hike with my "boys" (son and two nephews)...and the dog...woof woof...

adios

Hey everyone :)

I was too exhausted to post last night, so I thought I'd do my 3 list from yesterday this morning.

1. I got munchkin to kindergarten on time and we both ate breakfast. (dh normally makes breaky for everyone, but he is working mornings now)
2. Stuck with my project at work and came very close to finishing. (60+ hours into this thing, and just the thought of working on it makes my stomach churn)
3. Walked a mile! (tried talking myself into only doing half last night, but decided pushing through was better for me)

So, what am I thankful for? Right now, I'm thankful for my family's good health and safety. We might not have a whole lot else going on in other departments, but all the riches in the world wouldn't matter if I didn't have them around me.

Sorry my posts have been few and far between, but I'm realizing how much help dh has been giving me in the mornings. I'm so spoiled! He would even prepare my lunch for me while I was in the shower. Guess it is time to get this household super organized so it is moving like a well-oiled machine. Somehow I normally manage to get more done when the schedule is tighter. Isn't that backwards? My house is more clean when I'm really busy than when I have lots of time on my hands.

Time to get outta here. You all take care today!
2cute, you and your parents have been in my thoughts and prayers. *HUGS*

Wow Sue and QueenB way to go! Had good news myself this morning when I stepped on my scale. Down another 2. That makes 19 pounds. I will make my goal by the end of Feb. Luckyladybug, well I have heard of people eating beaver tails...the real thing! uugh not my thing. But, I think funnel cakes are also called beaver tail if I'm not mistaken. I would prefer those.lol
So if friday is fingernail, and facials...what do you all do for that? Sounds like a little TLC for myself coming up....lol. Have a good day everyone. TGIF!

Hi all... :wave:

I have absolutely no business taking time to post. I have soooo much to do here the few days I will be home. I was going back to my parents today... but they are going to try and release my mom from the hospital Sunday so I decided to try and catch up here at home Saturday. I will be taking care of her all week and she does not have a computer so I won't be back for awhile. I doubt seriously if I will be able to make it to the library.
My dad had a minor stroke and has lost use of his throat. He can not swallow anything including water. They had to implant a feeding tube today. Hopefully with therapy they can get him able to at least eat soft foods... but no promises. He is taking it as a trooper so far... I hope his spirits remain high after weeks of this.

I miss you guys sooooo. I miss your inspiration, your stamina, your love, and heck.... you guys are the only ones around here that think I am funny. :lol:

My food sucked last week. Then I got the flu and I paid the price for having a full stomach. :rolleyes: ..... It was not a pretty sight. :eek: LOL
Now I am just going to try and be sane. This has to be a way of life.... and life will ALWAYS be throwing us trials and tribulations. I have to learn to live with the food and the problems in harmony. Heck ... lets face it. We overeaters eat when life is going great too. What better way to celebrate than to EAT. LOL
Soooooo... the bottom line is this....
There will ALWAYS be reasons to turn to food "other than" to nourish our bodies. Sometimes negative.... sometime positive.
But we... no, I need to quit using food to cope and just use it primarily for nourishment and maybe an occasional treat.... in moderation.
I want to not only lose... I want to maintain... so I might as well start now learning how.

Gee... I wish I had some funny story to end with. Life is a wonderful gift and I want to share the joys too.. not only the problems. I guess I will share a funny thing my dad said after they inserted his feeding tube. He is nearly 92 years old... and still as cute as a button. The nurses were checking the tube out and he smiled at them and asked.... "Hey, Can you give me a BUD through that?" :) :lol: :) It made me smile.... I hope it made you.

Kat... you had me rolling on the floor laughing. "Heat seeking missile.... youse guys..." LOL.... Ya'all in Jersey do talk funny to us OKIES down yonder... LOL :lol:

Several newcomers... PA and Mom4... WELCOME !!! I can't wait until I can get to know you better. Don't leave before I make it back. ;)

QueenB.... Your hubby is a hoot.... LOL
Him thinking you stayed home for HIM. :lol:
When you said "Good Lord" I thought I would choke laughing. :lol:

Baylee... I too am a "Crossing Over" fan. I don't usually admit that out loud. LOL. Most of my family thinks I nuts. :lol: All of you here already KNOW I am. LOL

This has been the BEST therapy... thanks so much for just being yourselves.
I love you all sooooooo !!!! :love:

Hi everyone,

2cute, I hope your family will be okay. Take care of yourself. Go on a walk instead of embracing the edibles. It's difficult with the stress of everyone needing you. Take care.

Lucky, I was a surfing the site and read kymber's success thread. Awesome pictures and story. You mentioned Geneen Roth's books. Do you recommend them? She mentioned breaking free? Please let me know what you think about them. The root of my struggles are emotional and behavorial. This may be the book that clicks my head into one piece.

Baylee, I've glimpsed Crossing Over on Sci fi channel. What is it about? Is it about death experiences?

Katrina, did you see spongebob's new episode? The snow fight was a blast. Those two ids crack me up. Poor Squidward, went over the deepend as usual.

Week in review. I accomplished my exercise and water goal. Need to reexamine my food plan goal. After reading Kymber's success story, it made sense. It's all about choices, portion control, and eating well. For dinner, I had ahi fish grilled in George Foreman's grill with lemon juice. I mixed 2tsp of balsamic vinegar and 1tsp olive oil. Poured it over steamed oriental veggies. It was absolutely delicious.

Enjoy,
Malia

Good Morning all
2cute hope your mom and dad get better soon{{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Baylee: I eat Kashi too I like the Kashi Melody and the Heart to Heart. I also like the better than eggs scrambled and morningstar farms sausage patties. I didn't like the link sausage though. I would like the address for the recipes.

Prism: Crossing over is about relatives that have passed on trying to contact you. This man tells people what their family is trying to tell them kind of like Sylvia Brown does on Montel.

Food wasn't good this week. I ate a lot but I was doing a lot of moving. DH and I went into the city yesterday to see a movie we saw Queen of the Damned it was so so. I like Anne Rice books. We ate lunch at Krystals and dinner at Ryans.

Well I better go eat breakfast. We are having some new windows put in our bed room today.

Good Morning!

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day!
Uh, sorry, I can burst into singing showtunes at the drop of a hat, I guess my fingers do too!

So good to hear from you 2cute! Your dad sounds like my dad! Last year, he went through 3 MAJOR surgeries, a small stroke, endless trips to the hospital...at one point, when asked if he needed something to drink, his reply was, "how about a Bud?" :lol: Hang in there, kid...Malia's right, take a walk, instead of hitting those #%@& vending machines! It clears your head and makes you feel better. We'll miss you!

Malia, I saw kymber's site too! Amazing! Reading about her success had a LOT to do with me re-focusing myself. The bottom line is, THIS CAN BE DONE, but nobody can do it for us...eat right, drink the water, daily exercise...end of story. Seems so clear cut doesn't it? By the way, I don't ususally catch the new SB episodes, I see him in the morning, all the reruns...some of them I've seen 3 and 4 times! There's one that Daniel is dying for me to see...where they are all cursing! :lol: Have you seen that one?

Baylee, thanks for the info on protein...how are those skinny hands?

Allright, who else likes "Crossing Over?" I love that show...it helps that John Edwards is easy on the eyes! ;)

Andria, I couldn't have said it better, all the riches in the world cannot replace what I have...I count my blessings everyday.

Grannie, the movie is never as good as the book is it? Only one is that I can think of....The Green Mile by Stephen King...Anyone see/ read? Loved both!

I really have to run...going to Mom and Dad's for moving day! Should get a lot of pyhsical activity there! I just called and asked if I could stop and pick up bagels or something...Mom said, "No, that's okay, I got some Dunkin Donuts!" And I wonder why I have a weight problem...I'll stop and get the bagels, some nice multi grain ones!!

Later dudes...

2Cute: I feel so sad for you and exhausted…. My Dad had a stroke two years ago, which is the reason I now live in the country instead of the city. He had the throat problem too but two weeks ago I had to go and buy him all new clothes because of the weight he has gained, so the throat responded to therapy. I pray your Dad’s does too. My Dad was like yours except he asked for a whiskey/water.

What is wrong with the people you know????? You are a riot!!!!!

When is Crossing Over on? I only saw it once. Just so you know I too am a “nut” I have a friend who is a psychic and I have seen her work her healing – on me….and it worked. Enough, we will need another thread if we get on this subject!!!!

Good morning,

Good news: I lost 3lbs. The scale reads 245lbs. Finally... I also measured. I lost a half an inch on my upper chest, midriff, thighs, and arms. The bulk of my weight is centered in my middle. Nothing budging there. Hopefully, the weight lifting will affect the inches there. My face is not as bloated too. Whew.

date............1/13/02........... 2/23/02
weight............249..................245
up chest.........43....................42.5
chest..............49....................48.5
midriff.............46....................44.5
waist..............43.5.................43.5
stomach.........52.5..................52
hips................48.5..................49
l/r thigh........26.5/27.............26/26
l/r calf...........17.5/18..........17.5/17.5
l/r arms......15.75/15.25.....15.25/15.25

Baylee, ahi is fresh tuna. I didn't realize it until I looked it up on the internet just now. Most people in Hawaii eat it raw with hot mustard/shoyu (soy sauce). It's expensive, but worth it. Losing weight on your hands got a chuckle out of me. I always lose on my butt first. The last place to lose because I have none. It's practically nonexistant now except for its width.

Speaking of square hips, Katrina, I guess I'm a squarepant too. I'm shortwaisted and have a nonexistant butt. My dad's sister has the same shape too. :lol: Germanic blood--angular. No, I never saw that spongebob episode. Like you, I keep seeing the same episodes.

I need to eat breafast and attend the visitation of my coworker.

Take care,

Hi all,

Weigh in this morning and I actually lost 1/2 pound! Yeah, I thought for sure a gain of 2 pounds.

I bought myself some new exercise videos and a outfit to celebrate.

Hey everyone :)

I am totally exhausted, but feeling great! I finished that huge project at work!!! Almost 5000 line items corrected. I am sooo proud of myself. :D

I have something else to be proud of as well. I haven't missed a single day of walking yet. Monday will be 3 weeks. My attitude is improving as well as my body. The walking isn't exhausting me nearly as much as it was the first couple of weeks, and my butt is getting much tighter already. Too bad my belly doesn't follow suit! I'm sure it is, but the backside is easier to tell.

I'm going to go lie down on the couch and be a slug for a bit, maybe take a nap so the rest of the evening can be enjoyed. Just had to check in with all of you. :)

Hi everyone,
I started Atkins 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love how I feel. I feel amazing. No more hypoglycemic attacks for me. Ok this sums up how I feel....headline news

Woman wakes up from wonderful sleep and realizes someone stuffed her in 360 lb fat suit.

That's me...I definetly feel different than what the mirror shows me.
Don't ya just hate when that happens :)

Is there any more low carbers in this group ??
