Weight Loss Support - 300+ And Ready to try Again...#223

10-03-2002, 07:21 PM

We are a group of people who are working together to lose our excess weight.
We are on different plans and are of different sizes.
We want to invite everyone to join us in our journey.
We share laughter and tears.
We share what works for us and what doesn't.
We recently started a Topic of the Day.

Monday........Motivation Monday
Tuesday.......Tuesday Tips
Wednesday.....Wednesday Weigh ins
Thursday......Thankful Thursday
Friday........Friday Facials, Fingernails and Fun
Saturday.......Sit-up Saturdays - any physical activity
Sunday.........Soup and Salad Sunday - recipes

These are not required topics ...just ideas to share. We have found them very helpful. We also share heartaches and fears...joys and celebrations.

Please feel free to jump right in with us.
And be sure to check if there is a second page. We don't want anyone to miss any posts.

Tontoy....welcome to our humble little group which seems to be growing by leaps and bounds these past few weeks!! Its always great to have new people join in with us! The more support the more likely we will all succeed!! As I was reading your story I thought I was reading my own post! I too lost 97 lbs in 1999 before I got pregnant. I had a beautiful bouncing baby boy on September 11, 2000! So our kids are about the same age!! Isn't it fun?????? The terrible twos are starting to become trying!!!

Sara I'm glad you finally received the materials! I got 2 of my books delivered today that I had ordered last week. English books on writing term papers! Yuk!! I figured I would get a jump start on that class since I am taking 3 this semester!!

OK I can't remember what you all wrote last thread so I gotta go back and read again to refresh this old brain!

I'll be back!!

I just lost a good long post, I don't have the heart or the time to conjure everything up again. wah! Suffice it to say...I had a fabulous, OP day...banked 5 points, drank all my water and then some, exercised and feel real good. Here's to another great day tomorrow!

MALIA!!!! Bon Voyage, Auf Wiedersehen, Arrievederci...Have a wonderful trip...please tell us all about it when you get back!!

Time to scoot someone away from Nintendo and off to bed...no easy task, I assure you!

Sweet dreams to all...I'm not working tonight, so I will have some too!

I had a pretty decent day today for a couple of reasons: One, I got Michelle's package full of recipes, tips, motivational stuff and two, one of my piano student's moms said to me that I was really shrinking! It's funny... when I told her I still had about 40 pounds to go (46 ACTUALLY) she looked astonished and said "NO... you don't need to lose that much! You look great!" While it was nice to hear, I DEFINITELY need to lose that much! I think people are so used to seeing me bigger that now I look comparatively small! My goal weight (150 pounds) is on the generous side of a healthy weight for someone my height (5'7") and I'm definitely getting there!

Last night I ended up renting "Brotherhood of the Wolves". It's not bad and definitely keeps you guessing (thus interested) for most of the movie. I'll give it 3.5 stars outta 5! And, no, for all those asking, I did NOT give into my snacking urges! :smug: Truthfully, I'm VERY committed to my diet and I KNEW I wouldn't give in... I just had the URGE to snack and wanted to be distracted by you guys! I sipped two bottles of lemon water throughout and had to pause it twice to pee! :lol:

Tontoy... Welcome to our crazy little thread! You won't find a better group of gals to provide you with friendship and support anywhere! Wow! Three weeks before weigh-in is such a long time. You'll probably be in for an awesome shocker when you finally step on that scale! I wouldn't be able to resist my scale's seduction for anywhere near that long. Hmmm... I did WI yesterday so maybe I'll TRY to wait until next Wednesday WI before doing it again. It'd be a first! Do you think I can do it? :lol:

Shells... Hope you got your much needed rest after getting up this morning earlier than I went to bed! :o

J-Ann... Thanks for the kick in the rear last night! Now I owe YOU one! :s: I won't forget it!

Ahhh... man! The problem with starting new thread is you can't remember what was specifically on the last one!

Hello everyone:wave:


No breakfast waited till I got starving to eat lunch:
Split tub of chips and salsa with hubby
1 tostada no meat, plenty of sour cream
3 crakers with shrimp

And this too shall pass...................

1 cup of coffee with a splash of skim milk

1 small salad, with light dressing
5 ribs LOADED with BBQ sauce (Famous Dave's!Love the stuff)

And this too shall pass LOL

We boiled the ribs before grilling them. WOW! The fat and grease you get off before searing the meat is awesome and they stayed tender. I think these are some of the best ribs made in this house. Thats the thing I ate so much today they aren't even calling to me. Nothing is and I thought for sure I would be in blob ville later.

Ms. Chris Beauty Tips
1. Always wash your face before bed. They even make wipes you dont have to wet or rinse. NO EXCUSES!
2. Wear your sunscreen.
3. Moisturize everyday ( I love Merle Norman Luxiva)
4. Drink water for your complexion
5. Eyebrows say alot about how you look.

The one thing I have mixed feeling on is I wore Acrylic nails for 6 months this year. The salon trips were costly but it was my treat 2 self for quitting smoking. I loved how it looked. Well I decide my nails needed to breathe. My nails look like crap and are brittle in spots 3 months later. I am definetly having misgiving about going back again and I want nice nails for the holidays.


Have a lovely day ladies,
:queen: Ms. Chris

Hey guys......I'm here. How's everyone doing? Great, I hope. I feel a little better today. Food is still the same, but mood is picking up a little, so that is definitely an improvement. My Mom (who at times is my best friend and my worst enemy) called me today to berate me (yet again) about the weight I have gained back. She said, "I was so sure you were going to follow through with it this time. You assured me that you were going to continue losing and I have bought you all the clothes for Christmas in smaller sizes and I can't take them back!" (Of course if you guys remember the kinds of clothes that my Mom usually buys me-----it's no great hardship.) :yikes:
And the conversation took a nosedive from there.....although one thing did seem to come out of it. I told her that I didn't feel like I could afford WW right now (no, she did not offer to pay for it for me) but she suggested that one day a week we meet at our local mall and weigh on that annoying weight machine that shouts out, "HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR WEIGHT TODAY?" when you walk in the door and embarrases you.........and keep the little papers showing what we weigh and we can do it together. The thought of that actually cheered me up. I think it would be a really good idea and maybe something I really need. Maybe while we're there, we can even do a little walking. :dancer: But no shopping........that's what made me poor as a church mouse the last time we decided to walk at the mall. I never came home empty handed....... :dz:
I just have to say to ALL OF YOU.....thank you so much for saying the things I need to hear. I'm still depressed about the whole situation, but maybe, just maybe, I'm beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel.. I don't know what I would do without you guys. You are my heart. :love:
Also, I'm not sure who put the link up for the girls diary, but it is truly inspirational, what of it I read. I plan on going back and even though it will take me awhile, I am going to read the entire thing. No more than what I read really inspired me.

I think I will go for now and actually try to do a little work while I'm here at WORK and I will see my sweeties later. Thanks again for all the wonderful responses.....sometimes I have to hear from someone else what I already know.

:grouphug: to all.

10-04-2002, 08:21 AM
Mornin, Mornin, Mornin Ladies,

After work tonight I'm off to Cornell for a weekend seminar. Taking lunches so hope to stay OP all weekend.

Gotta run ..... Talk to you on Sunday night,

10-04-2002, 09:56 AM
Hi MichelleK, wow my daughter was born August 1, 2000!!! I think she has been in the terrible two's since she was 16 months!! I cant believe you are going to school and taking three classes! How do you do it!!!!!

I am glad to have some support and give support. Good luck to you all. I have a question for you Michelle? Have you been incorporating exercise into your program, and how may calories do you eat a day?


10-04-2002, 01:48 PM
Hey. pretty ladies!

Well, my first day (for the thousandth time) was a complete success. I am journalling at the WW site, which keeps track of how many points spent, how many exercise points used, etc etc. So far so good. I have to look forward...I will not dwell on how many times I have started this process.

Last night I made an easy and yummy veggie dish...don't know if I've shared it before, but with so many newbies in our ranks, I think it's okay to share again. Here goes...

1 yellow squash, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 medim zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced
1 med. onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 14.5 oz can "Fresh cut" tomatoes
1T olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic in oil, add veggies, saute for a few minutes, add tomatoes, simmer about 10 or 15 minutes.

I served mine over brown rice, you could serve it over pasta too, or I have also put it in a casserole dish and sprinkled grated mozzarella over top and baked just til the cheese melts.

I count 1 point per serving because of the olive oil. Of course it's more if you use the cheese too. It's any easy and yummy way to get a few veggies in!

So that's my tip for the day and it's not even Tuesday!

Lucky, where are you? Still journalling?

Thin...hello?? Come back, bra lady! speaking of which, I could use a few new ones!

Mary, of the library...how goes it? I don't have to ask you if you're keeping busy!

Baylee...how are you doing with your point counting? Did you have your WI (not Wisconsin) yet this week?

2cute, I hope all is well with the folks. You sure have your hands full.

Michelle...geez, Andrew's BD is 9/11? Talk about a silver lining! Hey! Just wait til those terrible twos turn into the terrible TEENS! AHHH! (I'm kidding, because I have been fortunate enough not to experience anything terrible, teen-wise...yet!)

SaraJoy...I am always so inspired by your focus and determination! You are my MUSE!

TINA, my darling...you just keep coming back here, girl...don't make me have to come down to Tennessee to kick your butt! On second thought, that would be fun! (Not the butt kicking!) I'll grab Michelle on my way and we'll be right over! Can I make a small suggestion? I have found, that when I am in the midst of a depressive state/eating binge...the more carbs I consume, the worse I feel. There is a physiological reason for this, (please don't make me go into explaining about blood sugar/insulin response, and the effects on your mental state...blah blah, blah) Try to limit your carb intake for a day or two days. It really does make a difference...a great website to read all about this is www.radiantrecovery.com. Oh yeah... AND, just know we love you!!

Duckie...could you share the link to allison's journal again? I never got a chance to read it and can't find your post that had it.

J-ann,,,did you give up the coffee? I know what you mean about it triggering a need for something to go with it...I am becoming a bit of a tea drinker, myself, and you're right...it doesn't require a little nibble to go with it!

Steph...you still with us?
Miss Meliss...I hope you're studying hard and that's why you haven't popped in lately!

Hi and welcome to all our newbies...Shells, Sweetpea, tontoy, Rochemist...please forgive me if I missed anyone!

Can I make a suggestion/request? Since we have so many more people here now, can we let each thread run a little longer? (and not start a new one at 30 posts) It's getting harder and harder to try to go back two threads to reply individually! Just a thought...

I REALLY have to go now, I've been here over an hour! Any chance of a chat this weeked? (she asked, sheepishly ) Anyone have anything cool and exciting planned for the weekend? Please share so that I may live vicariously though your adventures...I'm working ALL weekend. :cry:

Be good...

10-04-2002, 03:23 PM
Good day,

Not much to report, Monday is weigh in and If I can manage to be a good girl all weekend I'm hoping to report a good loss.

Kat, what is yellow squash does it have a hard shell, how do you cut it, don't know much about the different kinds of squash besides zuchinni, would like to try your recipe.
Here's the link to Alison's Journal for all those who need an extra kick in the butt, Alisons Journal (http://www.angelfire.com/al3/hillaryandali/alisdj.html) Take the time to read it all, she'll get your butts moving.

I'm so excited I just scrolled down and all the smilies and avatars are showing up, they were missing for the last 2 weeks. Hope they stick around, it makes the posts that much more interesting.

So Kat this is what I'm doing this weekend. Going to town, we live in the country, it an hour and and half drive, so it makes for a nice little outing. Need to go to Canadian Tire, and get a wheel alignment, I'm swaying all over the road, hope this is all I need. Then I have to go to Wal Mart and pick up some Hockey leggings and Jersey for my son, he start hockey next week. My boss gave me all the other equipment, so that saved me about 100 dollars. Then I need to go to Pennington's, the big girl clothing store, and try to find some pants. All mine are wearing out in the thigh area, I guess all that rubbing makes the material thin, it's always the first thing to go. And then I need to hit Super Store for some Grocery's, so that's what I'll be doing on Saturday, Sunday, I'll be cleaning house and doing the laundry, or yeah can't forget church. And then back to work, man I miss my other shift 8 days on and six days off, doesn't seem so bad anymore.

Anyways, got to go get some lunch, check in later.

10-04-2002, 04:13 PM
Good afternoonnn!!!!

Tontoy....I also work part time from 8-1. I am looking for a full-time job right now. I just had another interview this afternoon and it really looks promising! I interview for a different position with this company last month but the accounting manager wanted to interview me for a position in that department for a credit analyst which would be perfect since I am majoring in accounting! I guess you just have to do what you have to do when you have to do it!! As for exercise....yes when I lost the weight before I was walking 5-7 days a week for 2-3 miles and the weight just kept melting off. Now its harder to do with the little one and everything else I am doing but I try to do it at least 2-3 times a week. I figured it was better than nuttin'

Kat you were reading my mind as I was reading your post to Tina...when you said you were going to go down there to kick her butt I was saying to myself well you better pick me up on the way!! One of us can hold her and the other can do the kicking! LOL Watch out Tina here we come!!

Duckie I know I'm not Kat but yellow squash is called summer squash or crook neck squash. Its along the same line as the zucchini 'cept its yellow! You cook it just like zucchini too.

Kat I am going to try that recipe. I have to start getting in my veggies again! I love squash too!

J-ann hope you are having or had a good weekend! Good idea on taking the lunches! Thats called planning ahead!!

Ms. Chris...ribs...yum! You are making me hungry for them! I love it when they fall off the bone!!

Tina...my mom use to buy me the prepaids for Christmas. I am hoping that I lose enough by Christmas this year so she will see I am serious about it once again! They sure help!

Sara glad you finally got the stuff! I received two of my english books yesterday! I am waiting for the other $500 worth to arrive now! I want to get a jumpstart on the assignments!

OK I gotta run for now. I have to pick up the house and clean the bathroom. We are going out tonight to a bonvoyage party for a friend who is going into the service. Poor guy! I want the house to be a little neat for the sitter!

TTFN Michelle

Hiya Ladies!

I've been faithfully reading all your posts today but I've been busy cleaning all day! I'm still at it (just about the mop the floors) but wanted to pop in so you wouldn't wonder where I was! :) Tonight we're heading out for an early Thanksgiving dinner party at a friend's house so I won't be around this evening. (The Canadian Thanksgiving is next weekend, for all you Americans!) :)

I'm with Kat... maybe we should let the thread get to 40 posts before we start a new one. That would be the beginning of the 4th page... wanna give it a try?

Well, domestic duties call!

Sara :)

10-04-2002, 06:40 PM
Quickie, drive by post here...I'm going to Aquacize in a few minutes...woo hoo! Stayed OP all day...I'm on a roll...or...my rolls are on a roll...or something like that...

10-04-2002, 09:20 PM
It's me again!

I went to the gym, all set for an aquacize class...missed it by 1/2 hour...I guess I need to update my schedule. No matter, into the pool I went. I figured I'll do a few laps, see how many I can do before beaching myself. I think the most laps I have done (before today, ahem) is 4. Well, I thought, even if I do 6, that will be an improvement over the last time. I did the six, was breathing pretty hard, but figured I could do two more. Anyway...I had already exceeded my goal, so I figured anything from now on is gravy...no pressure, right? So, I did 10 straight laps of regular swimming, then 2 laps of a crawl and a backstroke, 2 more laps swimming, and kept alternating in this way til I had done 20 laps! It took me 20 minutes, so I figured I'd go for a full 30 minutes of exercise by doing some squats and lunges and upper body stuff for the last 10 minutes. I'm so proud of me!

My food has been great...I have exactly 1.5 points left for today...hmmmm...what to do, what to do. Not much, cuz I have to sleep as soon as I am done here, for work tonight. :p

One thing I have discovered these past two days, (of eating OP) is that I have gotten a lot more done around the house...I guess all that time spent thinking about food, looking for food, eating the food, feeling guilty about what I just ate takes up a good portion of my day!

I feel really good. I want to keep this feeling. The day after tomorrow will be the true test. Usually by the fourth day...my resolve has withered. NOT THIS TIME!

Well, I'm off to bed...have a great night and a fun weekend and while you're at it, get your butts in here and post!!! OK??

10-04-2002, 10:07 PM
Hello Chicks…

Tulips are planted!!!!!:cp: When I got home tonight I decided it was now or never. So I dug, planted and hauled dirt!!! It was cold and windy but for the beauty of Tulips in the Spring I persevered. :stress:

You know, Tina the thought of MORE clothes from your Mom would STOP me from losing weight. :eek: :fr:

You really should put on one of those snazzy outfits and let hubby take pictures so you we can see them! ;)

Kat can I come with to kick Tina’s butt?????? I know, instead of violence we could go in her son's room and tear (oh, did I say that...I mean take ) down pictures. I would love to chat this weekend….name the time and place.(oh, I know the place!!!) :lol:

What is this Weight Watchers online???? I can’t really see my way to pay that money but am interested. Do they have a low carb version also?

I COULD go and read up on this myself but would much rather have you explain it to me…maybe on the way to Tina’s? :?:

I really need to get it together…I know you have heard this from me before but I get so disgusted with myself. I heard this today….”Instead of having a goal to be happy when I lose weight, why not decide to make the goal to be happy This makes sense to me, not that it’s easy, but if I was happy I think my weight issue would disappear or maybe it would be enough to be so happy I wouldn’t care if I was overweight. Let’s figure this all out because I really am tired of being overweight.

Duckie Your weekend sounds busy.

I will check in the the morning to see if anyone has a time to chat. I will have company Sunday afternoon so that would be out for me.

Letting the thread go longer is fine with me….we are so chatty the thread just zips along.

10-04-2002, 11:37 PM
Hi everybody! :wave: Just half a minute to say hello. Again, I have been working what seems like constantly. :( 2 more stores and I can be done with by bra stuffing! Woohoo!!! :D

I will be gone all weekend. Theatre jobs again for both Saturday and Sunday. Also have to fit in my nephew's birthday party and a lunch AND dinner job on Sunday. I'm going to be one woopped puppy when I get through. :eek:

Welcome to Tontoy and MsChris. Shells, I think I welcomed you before, but if not, consider it done. I'm glad to see all the new faces. This is really wonderful! :)

I know there's a bunch of stuff from each of you that I should be responding to, but I'm really sorry that I don't have the time tonight. Please bear with me. By the third week of October my calender looks like it's freeing up a little. (for now! :lol: )

Gotta run. Love :love: to all.

10-05-2002, 05:27 AM
and one thing only.

:strong: This is my BEFORE picture!

10-05-2002, 07:14 AM
This is it!

10-05-2002, 07:17 AM

10-05-2002, 08:39 AM
...cue the "Rocky" theme...da da dada da da da dada da...da da dada da da da dada da...........gonna fly now!


I KNEW the threat of Michelle and Lucky and I coming to kick your butt would do the trick!!
(She said in her best Barney Fife voice)
And not a moment too soon...that would have been a HUGE detour, heading over to Minnesota for Lucky, then we'd have to stop and pick up Baylee, cuz, you know, we're THERE...and of course we'd demand some of her pasta salad...so she'd have to make more, or bring us to the party...and, oh well, it would have taken WAY too long!!!

{{{{{{HUgS}}}}}} and welcome back!

10-05-2002, 10:27 AM
Thin, WHAT are lunch and dinner jobs????? I think I want your life!!!! :flow1:

Baylee, DON’T open those windows…it’s cold out. You must like to cook it seems you always are…and now for others. What a trooper. What rock & roll do you like? 50’s, 60’s???? It has to be one of those because after that there wasn’t any!!!! :lol:

Okay first, Tina, I have to apologize and hope you don’t take offense BUT when I saw your picture and “before” statement this flashed through my brain “ her after picture will have both boobs almost fitting under the STEWART on her shirt”. NOW there is a GOAL! :cb:

Kat, don’t ever stop posting – I love the way your mind thinks. By the way, Baylee and I would be worth those few extra miles on the way to Tennessee.

I still have some rearranging to do in my computer room to get it just right, then I have to start planning my time better. I have started taping the shows I like to watch on TV so I can watch them when “I” have the time. Like on Saturday mornings I listen/watch Oprah and Dr. Phil from the previous week. There aren’t that many shows I really like anyway and I can watch them on the weekend when I have more time, because NO ONE has sent me that hunk yet. :stress: Anyway, I need to free up time after I get home from work at 6PM so I can get exercise in….I know, you are looking to see who’s post you are REALLY reading but it’s me, Lucky!!!!!

Keep posting Tina, I am following your lead!!!!

10-05-2002, 10:59 AM
Hi guys !!!

I am home for few days again FINALLY. I have not read any of the posts I missed... including this thread. Just popping in to post. Later today I will do all my reading.

It has been a rough week emotionally. The doctor recommended hospice for my mom and then later said she could have as much as a year. It puts a lot of stress on the whole family.

I am happy to announce I stayed on program the whole week. :smug:
And I had to walk what seemed liked miles in the hospital. At the beginning of the week I had to stop and rest. By Friday I could make the whole distance not stopping. :D I give total credit to my WOE. I also got in more water. The bad news is.... I had to see myself in window reflections constantly and I DID NOT like what I saw. :mad: Being soooo large and so old ... I REALLY have that fat person waddle. :( That swaying from side to side. It is sooo embarrassing. :o You not only see your own reflection in the windows... you also see the reflections of others staring at you. It was very hard to keep going back to the hospital to see my mom.

Add to that, the fact that everyone is getting their family reunion photos developed and there are dozens of fat photos of you floating around. :eek: LOL. I am of course the fattest one there.
Then my dad keeps telling me how FAT my brother is getting. He holds a photo up to me and says "Look at that.... he is getting BIG !!!!" (At this point he blows up his cheeks to simulate fat.)

Add to that ... my sister and I had a little tiff too. It was not my favorite trip. :(
Except.... I stayed on program. :D :D

I have not read any of the old posts I missed this week.
I do not know what has happened here.
I wish I had time to go read all of the posts I missed... but at this time I don't. I just wanted to say good morning to everyone. I also wanted to share that due to all of you... I have been on program again. I have been able to walk longggggg hallways, I have been able to handle emotional situations, I have been able to see myself in reflections and not go hide away or go overeat.
Thanks to this WOE and the people here... I am stronger and healthier. THANK YOU !!!!

I want to end with this post I found. Entitled... "Don't be afraid of failure"

You've failed many times, although you may not remember.
You fell down the first time you tried to walk.
You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn't you?
Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?
Heavy hitters also strike out.
R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in NY caught on.
English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564books.
Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs.
Don't worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try.

10-05-2002, 02:26 PM
Tina... YIP-YAHOO-WOO-WOO-WOOHOO-YEAH! See? Like you, I can be concise and to the point! :)

2Cute... I'm SO glad you're back! I've been missing you and wondering how things were with your family. Sounds like you had an emotionally draining couple of days (make that months)! You're so awesome! Not all families are lucky enough to have someone like you! I'M SO HAPPY YOU STAYED OP! It was wonderful to hear that! With that kind of determination, you definitely have the ability to make it to your goal!

Baylee... You've been doing fantastic on your diet and exercise lately! Don't let a couple of bad days take that all away from you! Honestly, just decide, from this moment on, you're back OP and forgive yourself those couple of "off" days. Get thy butt back to WW! This I command! :judge:

Today is gonna be another pretty busy day. It's my BIL's b-day so we're heading into Toronto for a sushi dinner...YUCK! It was the b-day boy's choice so I'll suck it up! (Not literally... I most likely won't touch it!) :lol: Oh well, that's ONE way to diet! Before we actually head off though, we still need to find a present for the boy :o and possibly visit IKEA (as we have to pass right by it anyway!).

All, of course, is well on the diet front although I DID give into the temptation of my scale this morning! One more pound down. Good.

Sara :)

10-05-2002, 02:57 PM
Ooh, Sara! I love sushi! If you won't eat the raw stuff, try something steamed. At least, get the seafood salad, if they offer it...it is SO good!

HI 2cute! Wecome back and congratulations on staying OP!

To the Minnesota Twins... Of course it would be worth it picking you guys up!! Wouldn't that be fun?! A big ol' road trip with all of us aboard! Maybe we'll wait til Spring, so that we can see your tulips in bloom, Miss Lucky. I'd like to do some transplanting, if it ever gets cool again. 88 degrees today...:p

Lots to do today...I had great intentions of hitting the gym right after work this morning, had my bag packed and in the car...but I was just paralyzed with fatigue...so I came home and slept. But NOW...I'm all rested up and rarin' to go! My goal is some form of exercise EVERY DAY. Of course AND eat well AND drink all my water AND journal too...that goes without saying!

CHAT TONIGHT, ANYONE??? I could probably be available around 7 or 8 o'clock est...

Have a good day, all...

10-05-2002, 04:17 PM
I'll try to be on at 6 central thats 7 eastern

10-05-2002, 04:36 PM
Boo! Chatting when I can't make it! :bomb: Hee, hee... have fun guys! I'll be scrunching up my nose at sushi while you're chatting! :lol:

We're off to get that b-day present!

Me ! me! I can chat....I am Central too, Mary....6PM....just go to the 3FC's chat room and we will have one for just us, right????? Not that others couldn't be there but I mean I shouldn't go to the main chat, right?

I plan to be there BUT my brother is threatening to beat his oldest son (17) so I may have to go and save his life as he gets home about 6:15PM. My nephew was speeding and making the truck go in circles with his sister in the truck. He then tried to take the corner and spun into the stop sign and broke if off. Luckily our farmer neighbor came by and helped them out of the ditch. But the stop sign has to get fixed or my brother pays big time to replace it PLUS "the" nephew lied to his parents three times before the truth came out. AND if the stop sign hadn't stopped them he could have ended up knocking down the power lines and hitting my house. See why he is in trouble!!!! I just keep telling his siblings to learn from his mistakes...this is just one more in a long line of many. I think I will go and hug my cat!!!

See ya at 6.....

Mucho fun was had this evening, chatting with Lucky and some others that joined in. I think we should really try to set a date for our crowd... snob that I am. Not really, I just think it would be fun to laugh at each other's spelling mistakes! Mine especially!

Well...I had a shaky few moments there this afternoon, when the Oreo bug hit...I ate four, thinking, "That's okay, just count the points." and then I ate four more! :ink: But I did count the points! All 8.5 of them! Plus milk, of course. It left me with a grand total of 3.5 points for dinner...hmmm...I had to get creative there. But I had a BIG salad, added some turkey and swiss cheese to it, which made me go over a little, BUT...the 30 minutes of TAE BO earned me 4 exercise points!! Woo hoo! This is fun! :D Really!

I have to jump in the shower in a few...and then back to work at 11. I bought myself some XXL exercise leggings and some new T shirts at Target today. Gonna break 'em in tomorrow at the gym. I'm REALLY going after work this time. I swear.

TINA!!! O ye of the cute before picture...WELL???

Hi to all, hope you're having a fun filled weekend...at least a restful one!

Love ya!
