General chatter - No 3FC for a few days...what did you do to replace the VOID

11-14-2009, 08:52 PM
Each time I tried to login...and failed...I felt like I lost my best friend.:(

So each time I failed I decided to do something productive.:D 20 situps, 20 squats and a glass of water!

What did you do?

It's finals week, and I'm in school and working full time, and I have a six page paper due at midnight I'm only half done with. I use 3FC to keep me balanced when I'm stressed with school. Every hour of paper writing earns me 10 minutes of 3FC time! But man oh man, yesterday was bad! I replaced it with a strawberry cheesequake blizzard from Dairy Queen! Big mistake :(

Thanks to my 3FC friends I've learned lots of strategies to keep me on track. While I certainly missed posting and catching up with my friends in Christian Encouragers, the outage didn't affect me much.

I spent more time knitting my sweater, and reading a book. Worthy endeavors, indeed :)

Cleaned my house... not as much fun as reading and posting. lol

I played a lot of word twist on facebook and got some extra sleep ;) Oh and I cleaned both bathrooms.

Facebook, new addictions

I was lost without it. I spent time playing Warcraft 3, games on facebook, and kept trying to connect to 3fc. It was so frustrating.

I thought I was alone in not being able to log on. It was horrible, I was going through withdrawals lol.

I had to football games to go to on thursday and friday so they kept me busy at least.

sooooo missed you guys! what happened anyway? I did my usual other internet stuff, but the void of 3FC was soooo big! Just glad to finally be back!

Turned out to be a good time out with surgery for a few days....thanks for the PM Julia!

I've actually been pretty busy so I don't know the extent of the outage. I had a super busy day at work the first day that issues started so I didn't realize there was a problem until later that day. I also had a karate belt test and practicing for the test. Then yesterday (was the outage still occurring?), I was doing some kitchen/pantry re-arrangement and did some shopping for that as well as other errands.

I kept focus on keeping my WL blog up to date, logging my food on my WW online and reading my favourite WL blogs (like B*tch Cakes, who I absolutely adore).

11-15-2009, 01:17 PM
I was lost... worried... mad... scared I'd never be able to access 3FC again!

What did I do to replace it: a couple of other weight loss sites (not half as good as this one, which feels like home) and OMG - work!

Love this site, maybe a little *too* much :D

11-15-2009, 02:03 PM
Only lost it for part of a day here.

11-15-2009, 02:31 PM
it was out for a good 3 days here. I worked on writing, went to another WL site (not nearly as good as this one).

"So each time I failed I decided to do something productive. 20 situps, 20 squats and a glass of water! "

THAT is awesome, I wish I could say I was that good. I wasn't awful food/eating wise, but I could have been better this weekend. The site definitely helps me with focus.

I hope I broke the bad habit I've developed of checking the site during business hours.

11-16-2009, 01:30 AM
I was grateful for the break...I'm sorta behind on homework and it took away an excuse to not do it.

Otherwise, I just spent more time on facebook and livejournal. AND i got away in the real world ;)

Lucky for me, I had plans for the weekend and there was no internet access where I went. So it was almost like it wasn't down for me. Other than trouble when I tried to connect Thursday night and Friday morning, it didn't really affect me much at all. I was sure glad to come home today and check back in, though!

11-16-2009, 01:58 AM
I hit refresh about 1670 times. I moaned and groaned and tried not to eat everything in sight.

I really didnt realize how much I depend on this site and everyones posts/support. I was stir crazy.

I went to livestrong on the second day...although I didnt like it nearly as much as I LOVE this site! =)
