Hi all, hope your holiday is going well, I didn't expect to see any more loss this morning when I weighed for the "Easter Goal" weigh in, but I did. The scales said 169.5. The clothes that have been fitting me tight are all fitting comfortable, and the clothes that fit, are all falling off. It will soon be time for me to go shopping for a new wardrobe. :D Any excuse to buy clothes is good enough for me.

RR - have fun at your mom's today.

Everyone else, have fun at what ever you are doing today. We went to church this morning, and other wise, we are just having a quiet day at home.

03-31-2002, 08:43 PM
The company has just left - we had a great day.:D

Lyssa - congrats on the 169.5!!:cool: That is so awesome! I'm sure it is motivating also.

have a great week all - I'm going to try to figure my points for today . . .

Happy Easter everyone!

Well I made it through the day on the low end of my points :-) We had dinner here for my family.

It has been a crazy week! It was nice for the weekend to get here and finally slow down a bit.

I lost .8 at WI on thurs that put me over the 20 lb mark. DH lost 2 and that put him at 30. We were both pretty darn excited.

Hope eveyone has a great week.


04-01-2002, 12:47 AM
Nanci and Lys: Congrats to both of you on your losses!!

That was the quickest trip home I've ever made! The boys loved our egg hunt (mostly money for Disney in the eggs). We ate too much dinner!

Now...lots of packing this week and a deep clean of the house before we walk out the door at 4 a.m. Thursday morning!

Hello, and welcome to the story of a flybaby gone sickly, sadly wrong. I was really on a roll there. Then, PMS struck this week with a vengence. I decided to take my "day off" and that has lasted till, well, NOW. Not only have I been eating poorly, but I have been sleeping a ton and not keeping up with my routines, errands, etc.

So.. Tonight, rather than just pick up where I should be, I decided to super clean the whole house. (I now agree with flylady - this should not be done). I got everything put away and cleaned the bathroom and the laundry from top to bottom. Was working on the kitchen and just had about 1/4 of the floor to go when I reached to clean under the stove.

Now, all good flybabies would clean VERY CAREFULLY if they ever smashed a casserole dish when removing it from the oven. Lazy Bailey's however, simply do there best. In fact, they may even overlook the dagger-like shard of glass that has become wedged in the door of the oven,sticking right out the bottom.

So anyway, we are back from the ER and all it took was 3 stitches. And guess what the Dr.'s name was? That's right - DR. Bailey!!!

Moral of the story: Never ever do housework when coming off a 4 day sugar bender and PMS'ing. In fact, Just skip the housework all together. Safer that way.:dizzy:

Nanci: Yeay on staying op and on the 20 lb mark! (tell dh congrats as well)

Lauren: We really should start a job seeking club. The funny thing - I AM on the pill and have not been getting "any" so there is no need to worry - but that is what I thought before as well. Will have to learn to relax about this.

Lyssa: Congrats on the 160's you are doing great - glad the holidays went well. I haven't been doing it, but You are right - I can and I will.

Jul: A kid who doesn't like chocolate? Have you taken him to the dr? :lol: Glad the holidays went well. Have a great trip.

Rabbit: OK - I'll do it!

RR: Good to hear you have been getting some time to yourself - You deserve it!

BFB: Get that booty in gear!!! Try baby steps!

Well - gotta go, the typing is killing my hand:^:

04-01-2002, 10:52 AM
Poor Bailey. These houses will do anything to 'get back at us for cleaning' won't they.

I have always been a night person and not a morning person - so what is up with me waking up at 6 a.m. every morning the last 2 weeks?????? I even had time this morning for a 2 mile walk, the kitchen floor is scrubbed, laundry half done, bed made (o.k. DH and Weston did that) and its not even 9 a.m. yet. - jul

04-01-2002, 05:54 PM
Nanci - cannot believe you did yesterday at the low end of your points!! Hooray for you!:)

dh got me candy yesterday although I specifically said - no candy. He said he had already bought it. Now I've got to do something with it because I cannot have it here. Thought about putting it in the freezer until sometime when the kids are back. Maybe I should just throw it away???

Bailey - sorry about your hand! I have not been a very good flybaby lately myself - although I have still been working on my nighttime routine and have been managing to lay my clothes out. But that's about it.

Jul - maybe you are at a time of your life when you are becoming a morning person!:D

have a great week all.


just do it.:)

04-01-2002, 06:15 PM
Hi All,

Been crazy busy, and crazy eating... :( Have 2 audits this week, one next week and one the week after...what is it with this industry, they love April?! :dizzy: The pyscho boss will be back tommorrow. :(

I'm off to Curves!

04-01-2002, 07:29 PM
Bailey-sorry about the hand..Maybe U should join BFB and I with the Slovenly Lady..I find that letting DH clean saves me alot of trouble!!;) :dizzy:

Lauren--Yeah on going to curves!!!Good Luck on the audits!!!

Jul--Have fun on your trip!!!!Good Luck waking the kids for 4am!!!

Nancy and Lys--Congrats on the loss!!!!

Rabbit--Men, what possessed him to buy candy???????Love them anyways!!!
Have a good evening!!!!

Jul, The egg hunt sounds like it was fun. A friend of mines in laws do a big easter egg hunt and the youngest person there is 36. It is kind of cute. Good luck on getting everything done for your trip.

Bailey, OUCH!!!!! Sorry about the cut. I want to join the job seeking club.

Rabbit, I will fess up on the points. The only way I stayed so low is that I was planning on drinking wine and then only had one small glass.
Throw that candy away right now!

Lauren, Hope curves helped the stress level.

Lyssalou, WAY TO GO! That is awesome that you are under the 170 mark. I can't wait for that to happen to me.

Vicky, I am with you and BPB on the slovenly lady. I pay someone to do my house. I have her come twice a month and I am finding that I will look at the floor and it needs sweeping and I will say that's ok she's coming on Thursday. Maybe I better kick it up to every week. Dh would probably have a fit. I had to fight for 2x's month. I pay for it but I think he thinks it's silly. I just got tired of spending all my free time picking up.

Ok I have turned into the little craft lady lately. I have been making crystal bracelets for awhile now and I have just got started on making cards with the rubber stamps. I am out of control!

Take care all

04-02-2002, 02:52 PM
hello all. I had some dental surgery this morning - yuck - but food should not be a problem for a few days . . .

Lauren - yeah for going to curves! I'm sure that will relieve some of the job stress.

RR - I don't know what got into him about the candy! He knows better.

Nanci - you're right, it needs to be thrown away. Right now it is not a problem as I cannot eat - nor do I feel like it. ~ I would love to have a cleaning lady!:D

Hello Everyone,

Back from FL (we stayed with the IL near Ocala) and it was fun, although I do wish we'd had our own car, but it wasn't to bad. Went to Universal and walked my feet off. Also went to a state park and took lots of pics. Then my folks came to town and we went to Daytona with them then had Easter with the IL's. We headed up the east coast to Jacksonville to catch the flight home, but I had gotten the time we were to arrive in DTW in my head so we arrived at the counter 1.25 hrs after our plane had left (oops!!!), they moved us to a flight this morning and we stayed the night in a motel. Now we're home and it's cold and raining and I want to go back where it's sunny and hot.

Tonight we're supposed to go to WW, we were on a plane last week so we missed, so we should probably go tonight, but I just want to be home. We'll see.

I read all the posts but can't remember who said what, so I promise to be more faithfull from here on out and check in regularly.

Talk to you all later.

- Tech :spin:

04-02-2002, 06:56 PM
Hi all! It has been a difficult few days. Dh's work changed him from hourly to salary which though it was supposed to be a lateral move it ended up cutting his pay, and it was retro active, so there was some concern that he may have to pay back some of what he received during that period. A friend of dh's got pre-approved overtime so he could go on a business trip(to the tune of $1400)and he is having to pay it back. Luckily they didn't do it as of yet. This paycheck will actually include some extra money, which we desperately need, I just hope they don't come back later and say that we received the extra money by accident, and they make us pay all of that back too!!!

I have decided that FlyLady's methods don't exactly work for me. Some of her ideas do work, but I ended up getting bogged down in trying to do it her way. I was doing really good about keeping my house picked up, and exercising, and beginning to get my life in order, but when I tried to do it her way, I ended up getting bogged down and not doing what I needed to do. I am going back to the way I was doing things before, and seeing if that doesn't help things get back on track. I even exercised today!!!

TechAlum - Glad you are back, and that you had a nice trip.

Rabbit - Dental surgery, OUCH! I know Liz talked about mouth sores helping with the diet, but I don't think she intended for us to have mouth pain inflicted on ourselves intentionally!!! ;) I am sure that it was for a good cause, and we should all take care of our pearly whites. Hope you are feeling better soon. That will make throwing the candy easier!!! You could always give it to some neighborhood kids.

Nanci - (or should I say crafty?) It always feels good to be creating things with our hands. When I am in the middle of projects, it helps me not to eat, because I am too busy to feel the need to munch. WTG on being on the low end of your points for Easter. Holidays are always so hard to keep up with diets. But you did it.

RR - How was your mom's? I agree with you on the candy. How can men be so insensitve to buy candy for someone who is trying to loose weight? Take the candy to work, and go buy flowers!!!

Lauren - :( Sorry Ms. Psycho is coming back, I hope the audits go well, and that she goes home quickly!! WTG on continuing to exercise.

Jul - I wished I could get up at 6 am but my body just won't do it. That is where I got into most of my trouble lately, by scheduling my day around getting up early. But I am happy for you that you are doing it. Have fun on your trip!!

Bailey, Bailey - you poor dear. I do hope you are feeling better. Don't give up on order, just don't hurt yourself getting there!!! I have had to back up and crawl before I even take the baby steps. The end result is what is important here, not where you are now. We are in a marathon, both with our houses, and our weight. If we run too fast now, we won't have anything left to help us finish the race!!!

If I missed anyone, I am sorry, but I too have been out of touch this past week. But I am back, and I will keep up with you all, because you are a great bunch of chicks, and I enjoy reading about your lives.

04-02-2002, 08:05 PM
My house is a wreck, I'm trying to get 4 orders packed tonight to ship tomorrow. Haven't packed a thing and we still plan to leave by 4 a.m. thursday. I don't need Flylady I need CheetahLady. Someone put me in hyper-drive!

Hi everyone.

Rabbit, Ouch on the dental surgery. I am hoping that you are feeling better soon. I am sure that there are easier ways to keep yourself out of the easter candy :-)

Tech, Sounds like you had a good time in Florida. I bet that warmth felt good.

Lyssalou, Sorry to hear about H's job. That has to be causing some stress.

Jul, You sound busy! Take a deep breath and take it one thing at a time.

Night all

04-03-2002, 11:33 AM
Hi all!! I'm back and with all my limbs still attached. Well, I did it!! I faced my fear and took a two hour ski lesson with the other two girls that went with us. After that I felt great and spent two days skiing all the green slopes. Still wasn't brave to try any blues -- didn't want to push my luck. I was so proud of myself!! Man, that was some exercise. We skied all day Friday and Saturday and my legs are still a little sore. Sunday morning I could barely move -- we were all walking like we were 100 years old. Having two other beginners with me gave me a lot of strength and courage to try. Thanks for everyone's advice!!

So now my one last fear/phobia that I still haven't conquered is singing karaoke!! :lol: I've never been drunk enough to be able to stand in front of a bunch of people with a microphone. DH is the only person I can sing out loud with and he loves to karaoke. Not me though!!! One of these days I'll beat this one too! :)

I behaved myself extremely well up until the last day. That morning me and DH hit the breakfast buffet (only buffet I went to) and I loaded one plate with greasy food and one plate with fresh fruit. I only cleaned the plate with the fruit on it.:D That night we went to an all-u-can-eat sushi restaurant. $20 per person and you could have anything you wanted. It was so good!!!!!!!!!!!! And I ate so much!!!!!!!!!! I stepped on the scales this morning and it was up 4 pounds from before I left.:o I'm hoping after a couple of days of eating OP I'll be back down to normal. I'm thinking it's from the last day pigout and also all that sodium/soy sauce I had with the sushi.

Lys, great job on the loss!!! Sorry to hear about the worry with DH's job. That sounds kind of screwy.

Nanci, great job on the loss for you too!!! I'm jealous!!

Jul, have fun on your trips. FL weather should be great for you.

Bailey, bummer on the ER trip. I hope you're feeling better. You're supposed to clean under the stove????

Rabbit, ouch on the mouth surgery. I can relate to having a sore mouth. Luckily (knock on wood) right now all my canker sores are gone and I'm able to eat with no pain.

Lauren, good luck on your audits. I hope all goes well for you on them.

Tech, I'm glad you had a great time in FL. I heard the lines were really long over Easter weekend (2 hr waits for all the rides). Hopefully you managed to miss all that.

Hi to everyone else!! Glad to be home and back to normal but I did have a great time. Even managed to win $50 playing BlackJack. :D

04-03-2002, 01:50 PM
HELLO. Well, I feel much better today, but the mouth is still tender. They had to remove a muscle that was pushing my 2 front teeth apart - youch! I had numbing shots above my 2 front teeth (2 shots) and then 2 more on the roof of my mouth. I decided I was never going back again (yeah right). During the stitching up on the inside of my mouth, I began to feel it and had to have MORE shots. So I'm eating ff pudding, sf jello and some cake!:D Monday I get the stitches out.

Tech - welcome back! Glad you enjoyed your trip.:)

Lyssa - that payback thing sounds screwy to me! ~ Hooray for figuring out what works for you. ~

Jul - good luck getting ready for your trip! You can do it.

Nanci - yes, I agree, there are probably easier ways to stay out of the candy.:D

Liz - hooray for conquering a fear! Glad you had so much fun skiing. ~ I think I'd have to be in the right frame of mind to do the karaoke thing. ~ Woohoo on winning $$$.

have a good day.

No one probably remembers me, but I did post here for a little while! Things got wonky for awhile, and I stopped posting (I also stopped loosing! :mad: ) . I never stopped reading, though, so I have kept up w/ you all. No, I'm not a stalker, I promise! :lol: Will post on the bio thread as soon as I get a chance, adn maybe that will trigger a memory of me from someone (not that I'm so unforgettable or anything! :p).

After reaching my all-time high of 192 lbs after quitting smoking (gained 30 lbs in 3 months), I was able to get back to 174 and stayed there for awhile on a several month long plateau. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's I gained 10 lbs (while sticking to my points!!! :mad:), and since then I have gained another 3-4 depending on which day I weigh. I've got to get it under control!!!

Rabbit, owwee on the mouth! I just had some surgery myself Friday was a week ago, so I know about that. I had periodontal/gingival flap surgery and a bone graft. It's where they cut ... well, you don't want to know! :eek: Really, it wasn't that bad, but my diet has been seriously lacking good for you crunchy stuff ever since.

Liz - glad you trip went so well. I've been skiing twice and will probably never try it again. If I fall, I can't get up, and I can't turn my skis when going downhill. I just go straight down in a line! Guess I just wasn't built right for it! :shrug:

Tech - glad you had fun in FL. I went one back right before they broke ground on Epcot - 1982!!! It was at Easter, too, so I can symapthize w/ the crowds! :eek: I get to finally go on vacation the week of 7/4. Am going back to San Diego to visit my best friend and her family. I haven't had more than a day or 2 off since last time I went (Dec 2000), so I am ready!!!

No time to respond to everyone else, but I am thinking of you all and wish you luck on you weight loss journey. Hopefully, I will stick w/ posting this time and it will help me on MY journey.


04-03-2002, 06:53 PM
Welcome back Lisa.

Well, we did it. The truck is packed, the house mostly clean. I'll do a little more cleaning after I get the boys thru bath time then let them watch a movie.

Hopefully, we'll get to sleep at a decent time (at least DH since he'll do the driving) and we plan to pull out at 4 a.m.

I may get to check in a bit if my MIL will let me use her computer. Think happy thoughts for me that I stick with my goal and don't pig out while gone. I want to come home with a 'loss'.

Bye!, jul

04-04-2002, 12:33 AM
Hey all :wave: everytime I checked in here I meant to respond and now there are 19 replies :eek:

Easter wasn't so bad, I admit I did falter slightly - half an egg :devil: and the smarties that came with it. I have truly fallen off the bandwagon and somehow the "click" isn't happening for me right now. However, I will still pop in here with my bare faced cheek and pretend I have a grip on reality.

Type later :D

04-04-2002, 12:49 PM
hello all!

I've had a couple low point days - just can't eat like a :ink: once I start on real food again! Ha. Oh, and yesterday I actually had a day without Easter candy - woohoo - think I'll go for 2!

Strait - Welcome back! I am working on getting control of myself also (always!) as I gained over the holidays. ~ I am really missing my salads! I don't think I can eat them until next week - not with my salsa anyway.:) Yours sounds painful! Hope you get back to normal eating soon. ~ Your San Diego trip sounds fun!:D

Jul - Have a great time!:cool:

BPB - it is so hard to get back with it, but you can do it!!

take care all.


04-04-2002, 01:28 PM
Back again!

Well, I got the last of the dreaded chocolate ice cream out of the house last night :T , so I am ready to go! So far, I've had grits (3 pts), Hormel Bacon Bits (1 pt), and sugar in my coffee (1 pt). I'm having a ham sandwich (with REAL ham, not the deli stuff!!!), RF Cheese Nips and an apple for lunch after a 20 minute walk. Gotta work in many veggies at supper!

Work is getting hairy. I'm a state employee, and we're in the middle of a budget crisis. They keep throwing around words like layoff, furlough, and pay cut - :eek: !!! It's making me nervous!

BPB - since I got my satellite dish, I have become hooked on 2 shows on BBC America, Changing Rooms and Ground Force. The ones heare are older shows. Are they still making those shows over in England? Also, I hope you get back on track, too, and post more. Even when I was lurking, I enjoyed your posts quite a bit!!

Rabbit - glad your days have been low point. My idea of soft foods apparently were homemade chocolate shakes! :devil: Luckily, it's all gone, and it's almost strawberry season! That should keep me off the chocolate for a few weeks at least! I'm not good controlling it. It's either all or nothing w/ me! :ink:

Howdy to everyone else! Drink that water!


04-04-2002, 03:15 PM
Is it Friday yet?? That's the bad thing about coming back from vacation during the middle of the week -- no days to recover. I did make it to the gym this morning but it was more of an hour of movement than actual working out. :) I didn't even break a sweat. Hopefully my poor knees will be back to normal by Monday. BTW, I checked the scales this morning and I've lost two of the four pounds I put on over vacation. Hopefully by Sunday the rest will be gone.

They announced yesterday that one of the other guys got the manager job. I like the guy and I know he'll make things very interesting. I'm happy with how things turned out but apparently the other guys in the office aren't. They are both looking for new jobs. It sounds like it's going to get crazy but none of it's my responsibility.:D

Lisa, welcome back. I've only been posting a couple of months so I don't have much of a past here. Skiing straight in a line is not good. :lol: That's what I did 15 years ago when I broke my wrist. I tested my stopping abilities all day this time.

Rabbit, good luck starting back on solids. Be strong!!! I love jello and pudding too but am too cheap to buy the already made kind. I found a yogurt brand I like that comes with a plastic lid so I rince out the containers and use them for making my own jello and pudding. That way I can put fruit in the jello or blend whatever I want.

BPB, keep trying. I'm faltering too right now. Can't keep out of the saltwater taffy I brought back from CA. Plus PMS is this week and I feel like a bottomless pit.

Jul, have a great time and a safe journey. Don't pig out too much but don't stress over the diet while on vacation.

04-04-2002, 06:32 PM
I'm on my way out the door and wanted to wish you all a good weekend. I'm headed out of town tomorrow. I was going to leave work early, but I decided to go ahead and take the whole day off, so I won't be back to a 'puter until Monday. I get to see my goddaughter and her baby sister. Yay! Haven't seen them since Christmas when the baby was 3 months old. She's now almost 7 months old, so I know she will not even look like the dame kid!

Even w/ all the food my friend keeps in her house, I WILL stick to points, no matter what!

Everybody have a wonderful OP weekend!


04-04-2002, 10:38 PM
Hello all...Just have time to be a reader!!!Will post more later!!!

04-05-2002, 01:38 AM
What's saltwater taffy? Is it any different to fat back taffy? Saw Jill Scott in concert recently and that's what her band is called :?:

04-05-2002, 01:16 PM

I had a small loss at weigh in last night (1/2 pound) so I'm sure it was thanks to my dental work!:D But I'll take it.

Strait - yeah for getting the chocolate ice cream out of the house! ~ I love strawberries! I like to put them in my morning oatmeal. Also like to have them with pineapples, etc for a little fruit salad.~ have a great weekend!

Liz - Yeah for losing some of that vacation weight already!! ~ Sorry about the job.:( ~ I'm usually too cheap to buy the jello & pudding in little cups also, but if it works for me I may try it for awhile.

Bpb - sorry I don't know much about taffy.

have a super weekend!

OP since 4/1/02

04-05-2002, 02:12 PM
BPB, Saltwater taffy is a chewy candy. I found a website that explains the history/name: http://ctct.***************/saltwatertaffy_rdia.htm
It comes in lots of different flavors and it's hard to stop at just one.

Bailey, I thought of you that last night in Reno. We went to Ichiban's for their all you can eat sushi. Have you ever done this?? You order two or three pieces as you go and they just keep bringing it on. I think I ate 20-25 pieces.:ink: But it was so good and so fresh. They had to roll me out of there!!

Rabbit, good job on the loss. I'm really tired and suffering some PMS today and could care less about self control or willpower. I just want chocolate!!! Or a pillow!!

Thank God It's Friday!!!! Have a great weekend everyone. My house looks like a tornado went thru it (the flylady would have a heartattack if she saw it!!). I'll be working hard trying to put it all back together again.

04-05-2002, 05:30 PM
Hello Everyone,

Friday's just don't seem to have as much meaning when I'm not working :lol: , so I can't really say TGIF.

Didn't make it to WW this week we were just dragging butt on Tuesday when we got back, and I just didn't want to go to another meeting, so I have no idea what I weigh (I tossed out my scale when I moved last since it didn't work well).

Like several others I'm trying to figure out what to do about working. I need to go back to something but I'm not sure what. Wed. I went for an interview for a job I know I'd enjoy, the problem is the pay is really low (I knew it'd be less than I had been making but I was not prepared for how much less :eek: ). Today they called and left a message to offer me the job I need to make up my mind about it. Also yesterday I interviewed to go back to what I had been doing, which I hated but which pays well, only he asked for references and I said I'd send them, only apparently they've closed up shop where I was last summer since no one answers the phones. Anyway, that's probably more information about me than you want to hear, but.....

BFB - hang in there, I haven't been doing to well myself, hopefully we'll get back on track soon!!!

liz - sounds like you had a great time in Reno. We were there a couple of years ago, it's a beautiful place. What did you think about the towns on the border where the hotels would be in CA and the casinos in NV. I found it pretty humorous. The weights probably water, I know I never drink enough water on vacation (now other beverages....)

Rabbit - Congrats on the loss, take it any way you can get it. Glad your mouths feeling better.

Lisa - welcome back! Good luck sticking to program while you're gone :) .

Jul - hope your trip is fun and profitable.

LBH - hope work settles down for you. I am also close to my highest weight ever, I don't understand how it takes forever to take it off and just seconds to put it back on.

RR - I thought of you and Refman last night while K and I were watching the "frozen four" which I was amazed to find on TV. Hope your doing well.

Pyria - Just keep reading and pop in when you can. I know that's what I've been doing.

Sorry to anyone I missed. Have a great weekend all :D :D :D

Goodmorning everyone. I hope eveyone is enjoying their saturday.

Liz, Great job on the skiing. I bet you felt like a million bucks!

Rabbit, How are the teeth doing? Hope you are feeling better.

Lisa, Welcome back. It was nice to see your post.

Jul, If you are checking from your mil house, I hope you are having a good time.

BPB, Boy that click feeling.... If we could figure that one out we would be rich and famous. Keep searching for it and you will find it. Act as if....

Tech, Nice to see your post. Sounds like FL was fun.

Pyria, You have all of my support. Let me know if I can do anything.

Well we had another good wi. I was down 1 and dh was down 2.8 It is a bit frustrating that he is losing so much faster but nothing I can do about that.
I am still doing really well on the exercise front however pigs did not fly here this week. My goal is for them to be airborn again next week.

Take care all.


04-06-2002, 12:27 PM
Okay I entered The World Of Weight Watchers this morning. There is a meeting at 6:30am and 8am that I can make it to on Saturday.

Sorry I can't share my weight right now but it is horrible!!:eek: :eek: :eek:

So I stopped and said no more. I have to change only I can change. I can't let my busy life get in the way!!

Have a great weekend!

I miss you guys!!

In FL on vacation. Always knew smoking was bad for you but just found out how bad. Took notes on everything since my last post, then went to have a quick butt and my battery died and everything was gone. Maybe that won't affect my health, but it is not good for those around me!

On the weight front - eating "pretty well" meaning a lot, but at least it is mostly healthy. Getting tons of exercise (walking hrs on beach, swimming in strong current, yoga, weights, treadmill). Am slowly losing, but would like to step it up. My 10's are getting baggy, my 6's are SUPER tight and I have no 8's. Don't want to spend any $ on clothes I want to "grow out of". Only down 4 since october - must get in gear. Definatley better on exercise though.

Jul: I had just under 2 wks of getting up early also and am NOT a am person. I loved it. Then, AF came and it all went to heck. Got to work on this. Hope the trip is going great - am thinking thin for you. I know you said your Naples trip is not until later, but went to an arts fest today and was looking for glass pigs with a beatuiful blond chikc behind them. I really want some flying pigs for next to my alarm like Nanci. Do you have any in stock?

Rabbit: Ouch on the mouth! At least you are losing :lol: Good for you on the flylady - that is the way you are supposed to do it - those are the changes that will last. When I was getting my stitches, I could TOTALLY feel it in one part. They had to stop and give me another shot. No fun!

LBH: OMG I hope things are slowing down for you at work. YEAY on curves!

RR: I really want to join slovenly lady, but the BF is a tried and true member of slovenly men, and I am a slob, so I need to do something or we live in a pit! Hope all is well with you.

Nanci: I really want a cleaning service. However, since I am just out of grad school and BF just went through a divorce and has HUGE child support (dd has CP), and we were both out of work for several months last year, paying off debt is the most important thing now. Good job on the crafts, the exercise (although the pigs are down) and the loss! My pigs are lying in the mud, but I have been getting some exercise in the pm. We really should get on the job seeking club. I found a company that has two perfect positions for me, but have doen NOTHING. Don't know if this is fear, lazyness, or whatever, but I need a serious kick in the glutes!

Lizzard: You go girl! Skiin like pikaboo! Hope the soreness goes away soon. I have never been to all you can eat sushi, but when we get the half priced stuff at my parents, it is like all you can eat (there are always leftovers). I can hork down a lot! But, it is fairly low points even if you DO have a lot, so what the hay? Yeay on the $ win. I, along with a gazillion other people, did not win the Big Game this week. The jackpot is up to 150 million. Can you imagine??? Sorry about the job. I am sure you will make a move when the time is right. I bet the weight is H2O. Don't "sweat" it :lol: BTW, I never even knew there WAS an under the stove until this crazy flylady came along - just kidding, it is actually helping a lot.

Tech: Hope you had a great vacation!! I am having a hard time with the $ versus job satisfaction thing too. How do you resolve this issue? I have no idea. Best of luck. I agree, the "other beverages" seem to just coast down on vacation, don't they?

Lyssa: Wow, sorry about DH's job situation. That's tough. Good for you for realizing that flylady is not the ticket and going with what works for you. I tend to be an all or nothing person. I am working hard on changing this. Your note to me really drove this point home and I appreciate it. The end result is the only thing that matters, and I want to FINISH this marathon! (can I finish today thouhg :lol:)

BFB: Hang in there - the "click" comes and goea for me. Someone said to act as if. I have not yet heard this in WW, but I saw it on DWLZ. Don't try to do more than you can, just act AS IF you were going to stay op, have a loss, etc. Sounds corny, but I think it really works.

Lisa: Welcome back!!! How did you manage to quit smoking? I have never tried, but I think I am getting ready to try. I know myself, and I know I will have to be 100% committed to make this work, so I have been waiting until I was really mentally ready. I think I am about there, but have no idea where to begin. Ouch on the dental surgery. Good job with the ice cream! Best of luck at work and have a great vacation.

Pryia: We are so glad you are here!!! I hope you stick around and post when you can. Baby steps and you will get there. Let us know if you need a hand with any of the moderating tasks. I always enjoy your posts and think of you often. Would be quite blue if you were gone.

All: Once again, sorry for the extended dialogue.
