Happy Valentine's Day everyone. My suprise went wonderful for my husband. He was totaly suprised. All the ladies at the office couldn't belive the balloons and bear were his. HAHA :) We enjoyed dinner at Tony Romas. I have enough left over for dinner tomarrow. I had cheese sticks, steak, loaded baked potatoe and tea. I did eat some candy though. I didn't realize that the bear I got for him came with some gormet chocolates. I have three left. I can have one everyday for the next 3 days. That way I can burn off the calories.

I haven't joined WW yet. I just don't know if I want to spend the money. I guess I feel like I should be able to do it myself. Of course that hasn't worked yet, but I haven't really gotten down to bussiness yet. Now is a good time. Well, I want to check out some of the receipies so I will go for now.

Oh YEah! I want to thank CJ for starting this new Thread. Maybe next time I won't be so nice.HAHAHA :)

Talk to everyone later.

Hello Ladies,

Have bad news to report regarding the trial. Yesterday, the judge called a mis-trial! This is the same judge that threw out the confessions back in May of 2000. The whole family is so upset and frustrated. So this means we have to start all over on April 2nd again with a new jury and all. Something was said that was supposed to be said in front of the jury. It was no big deal, but prosecution fought hard to try to convience this judge, but he wouldn't listen. His mind was made up before we got there! So.....here we go again and I will not give up. I will continue to fight for Richard if it's the last thing that I do.

I will post more later.

Love, Chrissy

Chrissy, that is so unbelievable!! :mad: :mad: :mad: You should not have to "fight" for Rick. It's so unfair! http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//crying.gif I wish there was something I could do. Maybe that reported from the Detroit News can write another article. Lots of people don't believe that bull**** like this can happen in the American court system. You're in my prayers, my friend. :(

Chrissy....I agree with Jo all the way. Get hold of the Newspaper again and get the word spread again about the judicial system in your city. It sucks!!!!! There is no fairness to the victims at all. Why should you and your family have to suffer for 16 months. Some of those people need to have something like this happen to them and they would surely have a different outlook on things I am sure. It isn't fair that you and the girls can't even plan your life from day to day because you never know when the trial etc. will start and what will happen. I will keep you in my prayers. Love you. Sandi

Good Morning Everyone,
Gosh I am really sore this morning. I think it may be because I exercised way too much yesterday at the gym. But I did find out that exercise also helps witht he anxiety/panic attacks that I get.I refused all candy at work yesterday but did treat myself to a big fat cinnamon frosted sweet roll after dinner yesterday.

Judy...Good to see yo here again. How are things going your way? Hope things are fine. Miss you around here.Post more often.

Zoe...I just bet that next weigh in you will have a great loss. Don't worry about last week. Just try a little harder this week. You can do it.

M.K....Your surprise to hubby and your dinner sounded so nice. I think that was such a cute thing to do at his work. I think it was you that asked if I lived in Ilinois. Yes I do. About 40 miles south of Chicago.

Have a great day everyone and enjoy it to the fullest. Love to all....Sandi

Hi guys,
This is Sharon, I am visiting CJ at her house right now and am using her computer. We just got back from lunch and so I thought I would post while I am here.

Well I see my sister in law Chrissy broke the bad news about the trial being declared a mis-trial. As Chrissy has told you, we are all extremly upset that this has happened. We were just down to the last 2 witnesses and than all the prosecutor had to do was give the closing arguments yeserday and we were home free. But we never got a chance to, because the judge decided that something said "The day before" by the prosecutor after one of the detectives that took one of the confessions was done testifying for the prosecution and was ready to be cross examined by the defense. It was than said that the witness was ready to be questioned by the defense about the VOLUNTARY confession. Now the key word there was VOLUNTARY, which the jury should NOT had heard. I guess it was not up to anyone to determine if it was voluntary or not. For all we knew maybe the police threatened his family if he didn't confess. I am sure that was not the way it was done, but that word should have never been heard by the jury. So after it was adjourned than the judge brings it up so right away the defender, she jumps on it. So the next day she was ready with her arguments of why there should be a mis-trial. Well our prosecutor argued and argued why there should not be a mis-trial and they even called in the boss and his boss too, but to no avail. I mean I don't know why the judge didn't just say something right after the statment was heard and instruct the jury to disregard that last statement and have the statement strickened from the record. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO that would have been too easy, than the trial would have still been going on as we speak.

This judge really doesn't like us too very much. Especially since we went and appealed the right to have the confession heard during this trial. My daughter thinks this was already in his mind and so for the next trial we really have to watch our P's and Q's and make sure nothing gets said that would end in a mistrial.

As far as contacting the paper and letting them know about this farce of a trial. We really have to wait till the trial is all done and over with. We don't want to step on anyones toes and cause further dislike for us. Once this is over with than we will be free to do and say what we like.

So on April 2nd, it begans all over again for us. We will still have the same prosecutor, because we really like him think he did a great job and don't blaim him for what happened. I think the judge was determined from the get-go for this to happen and there was no avoiding it. We have talked to him and have all agreed that he will be on the case. But the good news is that the last prosecutor we had will ALSO be on this case. So we now get 2 prosecutors for the price of one. We like them both and feel they together will do a great job. We have a good repore with both of them and together decided we want them to try this case.

Chrissy will have to testify once again and I tell you guys, it brought each and everyone of us to tears to see her up on that stand crying her eyes out while she told her story of finding the van by the side of the expressway, that my brother drove that night to work. I cried so hard to see her sitting there while the prosecutor cross examined her. My heart went out to her, but you know guys, she did so well. When she was up there, we all were crying while we were listening, because it brought back all the memories of what happened that night to her. She was really quite amazing and I couldn't be more proud of her.

Anyways guys, I just wanted to fill you in a little bit more. Thanks for all your encouraging words through out all of this so far. We will continue to need your support because it is NOT over yet. But it will be soon. We will, like Chrissy said, fight for Rick because he is worth it and we love him.

I will talk to you guys again, thanks for being there my friends.

Love ya, Sassy Sharon http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//love.gif

Hello Ladies ~ My Thursday night workout was great! I'm actually liking this exercise stuff....and no one's more surprised than ME!! :eek:

MK ~ I'm so glad that your Valentine surprise went well. We went to Tony Roma's for dinner for V-day too!! :D

Chrissy ~ This is so crazy! I don't understand what these judges/attorneys think when they make the decisions that they do. It's things like this that makes me wonder about our justice system. I'm so sorry that you and your family are having to endure this. My prayers continually with you.

Sandi ~ You're right....I'm going to be so good this week. :)

Sharon ~ of course, my prayers for you too. This is such a horrible experience in the first place, and to have to endure a judge with half a brain.....well, just know that I am praying for you all.

well, nothing new here tonight....TGIF tomorrow!! Woo Hoo.

have a great night.

I better post here before there is too many to answer to! haha

Sharon & Chrissy:
I'm so sorry about the trial turnout this time ... hopefully in April, it will work out and that will be the end of it so you can all get on with your life!

Sherry:
Happy belated anniversary! Did you have a great nite?

Angel:
Congrats on your 3# loss! Great job!

Zoe:
Don't worry about that minimal gain ... it will be gone by next week plus! Good job on the exercise - I'll get there some day - just as soon as I put my mind to it!

MK:
Glad your valentine surprise turned out well for hubby. I do wish you luck on following the WW plan on your own - I thought I could do it too, but found I really need someone to account to - at least for now anyway. If you can do it on your own that would be great. Good luck!

Oh, yes, almost forgot: DRUM ROLL PLEASE! I had weigh-in this morning and was down 1 lb! It's gonna come off show, but thats alright with me - just as long as it comes off!

Welll, need to go do the updates ... and then bed .. will post my food tomorrow. It won't look good for today ... went to Pasquales with Sharon and had baked spegetti! Enjoyed every bite too! I only ate half of it - saved the other half for hubby - minus the cheese of course! hahaha

Until tomorrow...
Love, CJ http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//love.gif

Hi all and Happy Friday! I know I had Wednesday off and all but these weeks are still seeming to long. Must have something to do with the winter "blahs" I think. I just can't seem to function when the day is dark and cloudy and cold. Grumble.

BTW, I had an eye doc. appointment on Wed. and they say my eyes are doing really well. The implanted lenses are still clear and look good, etc. Only problem was they dilated my eyeballs and I had to drive home on the turnpike. Wasn't too bad since it wasn't really sunny or bright but I had to get off at an exit I don't normally go to and couldn't read the ticket to see how much it would cost! LOL!! http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//dizzy.gif

Also got my hair cut on Wed. but I'm not sure I like it just yet. http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//umm.gif Have to wait and see.

I've been doing pretty well food-wise this week, I think. Been afraid to get on the scale so I'll have to wait until weigh-in tomorrow morning to see. Sunday night, Rich is taking me out for Valentines Day dinner at this local, very nice restaurant. I've only been there once before on my b-day 2 years ago and fell in love with the place. It's very pretty and the food is wonderful! They have their menu on their website so I've already decided what I'm going to eat! How's that for planning ahead? If I'm good up till then, I'm thinking of having dessert! :eek: We'll see.

Meanwhile, the weekend will be filled with unpacking and decorating, etc. At least I'm getting my exercise! Which reminds me - I've also been on my treadmill almost every night for at least 20-30 minutes. Boy I sure hope this is a good weigh-in!!

Have a good day all!
Much love, Jo.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry not to have been around this week, but it has been one of those weeks where everything that could go wrong did.

We are leaving on Monday the 19th for a vacation in California - doing Disneyland and area for a week with our daughter, son-in-law and grandaughter. So have been trying to get organized for that as well.

Ken has had a bad flu virus all week and his hand swelled up and got all hot and his eyes got infected. He was really sick and is on antibiotics now, so hopefully will be all better by Monday. We have all been keeping our distance from him so it doesn't get spread around.

Chrissy and Sharon, I am so sorry that your ordeal is being prolonged yet again. What can I say. Your disappointment must be crushing and overwhelming. You two are very brave women. April isn't all that far away and hopefully this time things will run more smoothly. My prayers to you and your families. Take care. {{{{{CHRISSY & SHARON}}}}} Big hugs for both of you.

Hope everyone is doing well. I have to get going. You probably won't hear from me till after we get back, so you all be good and I will get back into the swing of things when I get home. Hopefully all the walking we will be doing will keep me from gaining. See you soon. Love, G :)

Chrissy and Family--- I really can't believe this! I have been thinking of you all week. What is the problem with this Judge? This trial can't be that hard. There is so much evidence to put this monster away. How come it's so clear to us and the Judge is so blind? I hope this scum get put away with no parole. There's something wrong in our country when people do something wrong so we put them away and next thing you know they're out on "good behavior". If they are good in prison, leave them there! Prayers and hugs for you and your family, especially that ole Sharon. Love you girls.

Well it's been a long, long week. We had our Book Fair at school, that's a big deal for us. I had my baby girl almost all week. She is to special. I was sorry to see her Mama come home. Haven't had my computer on all week. Will try to catch up tomorrow, if I don't sleep all day. Have a great week-end. I am proud of all of you who lost this week, pray that I'm one next week. Haven't been on the scale all week. CJ thinking about going back to WW, like you I need help. Went to Dr. she was proud I had lost 10 lb.. Didn't have the heart to tell her I had lost 15 and gained 5 back. Carolyn

CJ ~ WTG on another pound....don't ya just love being a "loser"??? http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//lol.gif

Jo ~ great job on doing the treadmill every night. I never was a fan of exercise but now that a friend and I joined a gym, I am really liking it. Keep up the good work! :)

Hi everyone!

Chrissy and Sharon: I am so sorry to hear about the mistrail. I just don't understand how things like that can happen. It is a wonder they even let anyone talk. Will you get the same judge? I hope not.


CJ: Hey 1lb at a time is GREAT! :) I will have to wait until I get my taxws done to see if I can afford to go to WW. This year we lose our son, so we only have the two of us to claim. Most of the time we get some back, but I just don't know. We go this Sunday.

Sandi: I used to live in Granite City. I just wondered if you were close to there.

Well, I need to go make out bills and it is getting late so take care and will talk to all later. Have a wonderful Saturday.Mary Kay

Good Morning!

Chrissy and Sharon, There certainly has been no justice in Detroit for the past 16 mo. for you. Wish there was some way we could stage a protest for all of your family! I'd be right up front carrying a picket sign! I really had hopes that it would all be over this time and you'd be able to have some closure. That judge sounds like a real WACKO to me! So sorry you have to go through this all over again but I'm praying the next time will be the time when that monster is put away for good. Hugs to both of you!

Took Cal to the doctor yesterday. His loss of appetite from those new pills resulted in a 8 lb. loss last month. His pain continues to worsen and he is beginning to have a really hard time getting up and down. He has a bone scan and a MRI scheduled for next Tuesday. His lab and test results should all be ready for his next doctor's appointment on Thursday. I know what the next year or so will bring and I'm terrified.

Before I forget, some bright news, drumroll please......I've lost 5 lbs. this past mo. If I can get myself motivated to do some exercise next month should be even better! Yeah really! Look who's talking! Me, who hates to get up out of this chair in front of my computer. I think I'm addicted to the web!

Congradulations to all of you who had losses this week! Believe me, I know how hard it is to take off those extra pounds. Keep up the good work!

Everybody enjoy your weekend!

Hugs, Judy

Chrissy and Sharon- I'm so sorry about the trial (again!)I can't believe the Judge....be strong and keep focused. Justice will be done!!I think you get the idea-- that we're all behind you and in our prayers.

Jello- way to go for planning ahead!!I also find it easier to plan ahead and anticipate any problems before they happen.Just last night we had dinner at a friends house and I thought of all the problems ahead of time.... we met at 6:30 so I thought dinner would be at 8:00 and I was right. So I drank water(3cups) on the way over. Nibbled at 2 appetizers and then went to the other side of the room far away from them( too tasty and I didn't trust myself) ate healthy-rice, salad and a little meat. But the big bonus was I volunteered desert, so at 211 cal/pc I knew it was okay to have some. Actually I made a chocolate torte and cream cheese double fudge chocolate brownines....and both were low fat and low cal. I also had 0 wine as at least 3 bottles were on the go.Now thats PLANNING ahead and I lived to tell about it!!!NO GUILT and NO REGRETS!!!
Everyone have a good day, bye

I'm getting ready to go out to the mall and have an afternoon all to myself. Hubby and son are going to play golf and that should take them about 5 hours so I'm free, I'm free, I'm free.....free to do anything I want to do.....yippee!!! :D :D

Mary Kay ~ make out bills??? Yikes! I hate that job! :( Here's hoping you had LOTS left over. :)

Judy ~ I'm a little out of touch since just getting back into posting here so I don't know who Cal is but I am praying for and with you in this. On the up note, WTG on losing those 5 pounds!! :)

Sandi ~
Happy Birthday to you,

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all doing well. Sorry for not posting sooner or more often. I have no excuse. :(

I do miss all of you very much. I have maintained my walking regimen and am very careful of what I eat. I do feel a bit lighter than a month ago...and my clothes feel loose...I think that speaks for itself.

Well, I go on my Italy trip on the first ...17 days of eating, walking and relaxing and some other activities :D My husband and I are ready to have kids. I'm a bit nervous(don't like pain) but, I'm ready.

Sharon & Chrissy- I can't believe you and your family are going through this. What the h*ll is that judge thinking? :mad: You are both in my prayers. DON'T GIVE UP THE FIGHT!! {{{{{{{CHRISSY}}}}}} {{{{{SHARON}}}}}

Happy Birthday Sandi!

Gail-Oh, have fun in Disneyland! Bring your raincoat, 'cuz the weather has been ugly ...they lie when they said it "never rains in California".

Well ladies, I'm off to bed. I will definitely post before I leave for my Italian Escapade! I'm so excited!! Actually, I have to work tomorrow and it's going to be slow ... perfect for posting from work.

A big Hello to all of those I didn't address individually.

Hey all! It's me, Jo. Whassa matter? Don't recognize me? :cool: Well, that's probably just because I'm officially THIRTY lbs. lighter as of weigh-in on Saturday morning! Wooooo Hooooo!!!! :) :) :)

Then again, I probably blew it last night when Rich and I went out for our Valentines dinner. Oh, it was wonderful! And I'm sure it was not good for me but I enjoyed every last bite. ;) And I had dessert too which was this decadent chocolate and ice cream and gooey stuff... Well, you get the picture. I really really really have to behave this week.

Truthfully, I had a bit too much wine with dinner last night and admit to being a bit tipsy. :rolleyes: Today I'm not feeling too good so I probably won't be eating much anyway. But I am on my second bottle of water already so that's good.

Judy, I'm sorry to hear Cal is having such a tough time of it. And you too, my friend. My prayers are with you both.

Guys, I upgraded to Netscape 6.0 and it's been doing some funky things to all my favorite websites, especially this forum. Keeps changing fonts on me and things like that. Can't scroll down to reread all your posts either so I'm relying on my memory here. Ooh, it's not pretty. :eek:

Couple things I do remember though:
Happy Belated Birthday to Sandi!
and
Have a great trip to Italy, Sylvia!

To everyone else, have a great day.
Much love, Jo.

Hello Ladies, I know I promised to post on Sat. but that was when I mistakenly thought I was in charge of my life. When will I ever learn! I was busy or had company all week-end, although I loved it that was the end of me doing what I wanted to. Oh well....

Judy My thoughts and prayers are with you and Cal. I hope for the best for both of you. Let us know. And congrat. on your 5 lbs.. That's great!

Jo Once again I am proud of you. You are doing great!!! Any of us would be proud of that much loss.

I spent a lot of today going thru my closets and getting rid of clothes I can't/won't wear. It must be a sin to have this many clothes and allow myself to grow out of them. It will take a semi to haul them off. I am writing down each piece just to see them in print may be my motivation. I'm sure it doesn't have anything to do with the candy bar I ate this afternoon.

Sorry I don't have time to address all of you. I have been reading the posts and I do think of all of you. Hope to post again tomorrow, have a great Tuesday. Carolyn

Hello Y'all ~

I hope this finds Y'all doing well and staying OP. I didn't do to good this week, especially the weekend. My husband Greg and I have been doing WW, me going to meetings and he just following along. I made a decisioin this weekend to do WW-at-home, the 2 of us. I've been gone so much latey between WW, the gym 3 times a week ~ I just feel like this is the right thing to do. So I will be weighing on Mondays now. Today, I was the same (according to my scale) 179. I am going to really try to stay on track this week. With vacation less than 2 weeks away, I need to stay good.....

Sylvia ~ Your vacation sounds wonderful! We're leaving on the afternoon on the 2nd but only to FL. Have a wonderful time!!!!

Jo ~ WTG girl!! 30 pounds is so great! You're an inspiration to us all.

Hi to everyone else....have a great night.

Hello again. It's Jo. And I'm sure you'll recognize me now that my face is covered in pizza sauce and chocolate. :( Had one of those "See Food" diet nights. What a dummy. Today some folks at work were going to go out for lunch and no one can agree where to go. I've pretty much decided if they choose the new restaurant down the street that I've wanted to try, I'll go. If not, maybe I'll just pass. Can't think of anything I really want to eat that would be worth blowing the day for.

Anyway, thanks to those of you who congratulated me. Just wish I hadn't blown it. :mad: Hope to make you proud of me once again someday soon.

Zoe, cleaning out the closets is on my To-Do list for very soon. Rich's house doesn't have nearly as much closet space as I'm used to. http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//lol.gif Just wish I'd cleared some of this stuff out BEFORE I moved it.

Well, after work yesterday, Rich went to the apartment and took down all the curtains and rods while I went home to let Watson out. Today, Rich goes home to Watson while I go vacuum the apartment. Tomorrow, Rich patches a few holes. Thursday ... well, you get the idea. Hopefully, this weekend, we can get in there and shampoo the carpets, do a little painting and scrub the floors. Once that's done, the place will be just about ready to go. I also have to worry about turning off phone and electric service and other little stuff. Glad I still have one more month!

Guess it's time to get to work. Sigh. Oh, I need a vacation too, Zoe and Sylvia! Can I come with either of you guys?? Seriously, I need one of those days where I don't even change out of my "jammies" and lay around watching old movies all day. Ahhhhhh!

Until then, back to work!
Much love, Jo.

Hello everyone Ė just popping in to say hi. Couple of notes, Chrissy & Sharon Ė so sorry to hear about the retrial, thanks for sending the e-mail Sharon, helps me keep up-to-date even when I donít drop in here much. Jello, CJ, Zoe and everyone else doing well on the weight-loss, WOO HOO! Keep it up. Blunder, sorry to hear Cal is having a difficult time, I hope the scan sheds some positive light. Glad to hear you are losing too though. Sylvia, have a wonderful time in Italy and good luck with baby making (lots of fun no doubt!! He he)

As for me, can you believe it girls, only 8 weeks til this little one is due. We are both well, though I am very tired. Got the nesting instinct Ė I made cushions last week and I have never even sewed before in my entire life. Also dyed my lounge a new colour. And we have been painting baby furniture, we expect the nursery to be ready in about a fortnight. Boyfriend and I still having lots of troubles, but whichever way it works out, Iím excited about being a Mum soon.

Iíll pop back in later and once my baby is born Iíll be back here, full steam ahead on the weight loss. I really have just let myself go in pregnancy and Iím not sure I really care. Iím looking forward to big losses and getting fit again. But in the meantime I know Iím growing a very healthy, strong bub (trust me, it almost breaks my ribs everytime it has one of its Ďexcitable periods!í

Gotta go, love to all
Sam :)

Hi Ladies ~ just got in from the mall with my friend Thyra ~ we went after work tonight. Hubby left this morning for a business trip and I'm here all alone. I got home to every light on, a dirt spot on the carpet and my son's bed, desk and computer gone.....he's gone, he's really gone. http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//crying.gif http://www.3fatchicks.com/ubb//crying.gif I think he'll be back tonight for a mintue since he didn't take anything else, like his toothbrush, etc.

Jo ~ Ha! I know it's not funny but it's funny. We all do it....just get to a milestone, celebrate and WHAM!! slide off the edge. I did the same thing just this past Sunday. I guess I was deciding to do WW-at-home with hubby and in that decision, I decided to eat.....he and my son were out playing golf and I went to the Super WalMart here.....come home with so much junk food and actuall started eating in the car!!! Had 2 packages of cheese crackers, 2 little debbie "devil dogs", 2 little debbie peanut butter thingys, and a few cookies. Pitiful, just pitiful. But I got back on track and I know you will too. :D

Hi to everyone else....strange not to see a bunch of posts here......where are y'all at??? Nighty night.

Hi Ladies, how's everyone doing? Sorry I haven't been posting often but I have been reading all the posts....not enough time in the day.....Nothing new at all with me, still trying to lose those darn 3 lbs that instantly appeared, 2 days ago. I have stayed on plan, drank water like nobody's business and zip,zero nothing....just those stinkn' 3 lbs that won't go away. So, I've felt a little down and I guess thats why I haven't posted....nothing to do with you guys, just me. Sorry
