Alternachicks - weekly weigh-in Dec 2nd
12-02-2002, 10:51 AM
Mauvais... hope you don't mind... I'm starting this. Why, you ask? Why would Ellis actually start the weigh-in thread for the week?
Because Ellis has lost 3 pounds!!!
189, darlings. For about 5 days now. I briefly went back up to 191 on one day, but I think everything is under control now. I refuse to ever see the 190's on the scale... ever again!! (famous last words)
12-02-2002, 11:49 AM
Elis, I am happy for you! :)
I am sad for myself however. :( I was 183 when I left LV. The scale said 199 this morning. I am a bit swollen so 3-4 pounds could be water weight. So waterever $ I have saved staying here at my dads I have gained in weight.
This will get me on track. The only one who hasn't gained is my 2 year old. Even bf is over 150 and the last 2 years he has barely hit 135. This is so bad on us all. New years is just around the corner right??? ~flower

Woo hoo Ellis!! :cb:
I on the other hand refuse to admit how much the scale says since in the last few weeks I have not even thought about being on plan. :p
12-02-2002, 12:02 PM
Thank you, you darling nurturing girls, you. :)
Flower, I'm sorry you've put some weight back on, but you're going to be alright. You're going to get into that wonderful new house of yours and have a whole new start! Just think how busy you'll be whizzing around unpacking and organizing...
Just don't do what WE did when we bought our second house. We ended up getting take-out for about 3 weeks. Because it was easier, and YUCK!! We discovered the house was full of cockroaches, and it took 3 weeks after getting the exterminators in for the last one to wave bye bye. :mad:
Squeak, don't you even worry about a big plan right now. You're having a rough time. Just try to treat yourself to some non-food treats to help you feel better. hugs, hon...

It is wierd you mention roaches. Lv is full of them. Even the cleanest homes get them. My neighborhood on the side of a extinct volcano had more than its fair share. But here, 400 miles away, I have not seen a single one. We have looked too. My 7th grader had an insect collection to do in Sept. I could have found 5 different ones in Vegas in 10 minutes or less, but not a single one in this town. Very wierd. Similar climate, waterfall, sand/soil ect... When I see a dark spot on the carpet in the middle of the night I still cringe. Last night it happened and it was a lego!!! :) ~flower

Way to go Ellis! All your hard work is paying off. Congratulations on your loss.:cp:
I am up one pound after Thanksgiving holiday... two full blown meals with both sides of the family. I am not alarmed however, as one pound is pretty darn good for a four day weekend of feasting. To be honest I haven't been paying much attention to my food intake and have been a slug in terms of physical activity ever since the bad infertility news. Starting to think maybe I need to get back on track...
12-02-2002, 02:47 PM
Oh Flower... how creepy. I'm glad to hear we're not the only ones who've had them. It's sort of an unmentionable subject in Ottawa. There's this myth that only dirty people get them. :rolleyes: Apparently they can live off the gum from the back of a stamp for a week, so I don't know where "dirty" comes into it. It's city life.
The worst thing was, they got into our fridge when we moved here, and we had to throw everything out. Hence the take-outs. ;)
We DO get some anti-toxic stuff and put it down once a year... just to make sure they don't come back. This stuff in a tube that looks like.... like... a bogie.
Sojo, where've you been, hon? How are you doing? Are you really sad? Are you keeping going? love and hugs...
And get your butt in gear, girl!! Hey... one pound up for Thanksgiving is pretty darned good. Now go and get it off!!
12-02-2002, 03:30 PM
Congrats on making the 180's Ellis!
I weigh in on Friday and will report the results then.
12-02-2002, 03:37 PM
Thank you, Sabrina. :) I'm VERY happy. :D
Have a good, healthy eating week, hon!
12-02-2002, 04:07 PM
Hey everyone! I thought I would post in here instead of my I'm very upset thread since I weighed in today. As you know I was bummed because I went from 266 to 280 because of medication, my period, and Thanksgiving pig-outs. Well, I weighed myself and I am now 278lbs. Whoo-hoo!!! I feel pretty good about it. :cb: :dancer: Yay for you Ellis! Way to go babe! I'm really happy for you! Sojo thats awesome that you gained only a pound, I know how easy it is to go crazy on the holidays. I'm still rooting for you Squeaker! I know everything will be great for you. I know you've been a bit preoccupied , it happens to everyone, but you'll get back on it. I'm sending good vibes your way!:goodvibes Sabrina, good luck Friday! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
I am so glad I found you all, you are all so supportive, and by far the nicest forum I've found yet. Ok, I have to go dance now.
12-02-2002, 04:15 PM
Velvet, that is WONDERFUL news!! Keep on that roll, girl! :cb:
12-02-2002, 04:42 PM
Thanks Ellis! I edited my post cuz I meant to write more but I hit the enter button like a dork before I was done and had to go back and add. LOL! I don't want to appear totally self involved. ;)
12-02-2002, 11:32 PM
WEIGH TO GO TO ALL YOU LOSERS!!!!
ESPECIALLY you Ellis!!! All the hard work is finally starting to show on the scale!!!!!!
12-03-2002, 08:30 AM
Thank you Velvet and Dentrassi. Bow, curtsey, etc. Velvet, we love you, too. :D
Den, honey... I'm not supposed to be losing weight without you. So get your little bum in gear and do something. ANYTHING! See how long my body has held off losing ... JUST FOR YOU!? Ten ruddy weeks, it's been!! It's been saying, "I know you're exercising like a crazy-woman, Ellis, but I'm not dropping any pounds until Den does."
12-03-2002, 08:39 AM
Good morning - I am finally back to 211. The drugs and crap from the operation put me up to 214.5 - or else it was a very heavy bandage! :D Now I need to get back below 210 and head for 199.
Ellis - 3 freakin' pounds! Wow! You didn't cut off your lovely heavy hair, didja? I bet you have 15 pounds of hair!
Flower, sympathy about the roaches. We has a townhouse in Ottawa which was just awful! They were living in a hole in the floor under the fridge! So far none have shown up here in the country - must have been a city thing.
Sheesh! We sure are getting off thread topic! I love it but it's hard to keep up.
12-03-2002, 08:42 AM
That's great, Ruth!
Hmmm.... bandages and hair... what else can we get rid of...
12-03-2002, 10:23 AM
Way to go sweetie!
Sorry I am so slow reading this thread! I do not weigh in until tonight, so I never really paid much attention, but thought I would check in an see how everyone else is doing! Fabulous darling! I am so freakin' proud of you.:D :jig: :bravo: :cb: :cp:
All your hard work is starting to pay off.
Big hug to you hun~!:grouphug:
12-03-2002, 12:33 PM
Oh, Virginia... you sweet thing you... :D
Yes, I am feeling pretty damned good. I'm just looking around to see where the three pounds came off, and I don't see much new. Probably came off my left foot or something.
12-03-2002, 01:51 PM
BOOBS!! That's what I can get rid of!!
12-03-2002, 05:51 PM
Huh! Not me! When I lose my weight, you'll barely be able to SEE mine!
12-03-2002, 07:48 PM
Yeah? Well, Ellis you can have some of mine! My boobs are like a EE cup. My breasts measure 7 inches bigger than my midriff, and that makes me a EE cup size. I gotta tell ya it sucks beyond belief! They make my back sore, and they probably add about 20-30 lbs. to my weight. I don't know how people like Pamela Anderson,and Anna Nicole Smith stand them so big! :yikes:
12-03-2002, 07:53 PM
I know... I know, Velvet. My sympathies. I actually used to WANT to have big breasts! I thought I was missing out on something (I probably was :D), but now I am VERY happy with what I've got.
12-03-2002, 08:02 PM
Phew! I have been out of the loop by not posting for a few days!
:hat: congratulations Ellis!:hat: :cb: That is great! Your workouts are finally paying off! Way to go girl!
Velvet-congrats to you to girl! :dance:
Ruthxx-yay!:cp: You are back down...those meds really can interfere, can't they? How is your wrist doing?
I am at 156 now! Whoo! I hope I have finally broken that plateau I was stuck on~ I am still hoping for 155lbs in time for DH's office Christmas party on December 13th. ACCCCKKK! What am I going to wear to this thing???? :yikes:
12-03-2002, 08:08 PM
Thank you, Mauvais, dear. And congratulations to you, too!! You can get rid of that pound by Christmas. Bellydance for an hour a day and you will be so slim you'll be able to go the Christmas party wearing nothing but a thong. :D
12-03-2002, 08:48 PM
:lol: :o Thanks for the vote of confidence of Ellis! I am sure I would be the most popular gal at the party if I showed up in a thong and nothing else! Well, maybe a bit of tinsel since it is Christmas :s:
12-04-2002, 08:07 AM
Good idea for Mauvaisouroux's Xmas party. Would likely get lots of free drinks. Got weighed in yesterday, and can not believe it really, but tried twice just to be sure. Down 4.5 this week. In four weeks that is 14 lbs. No miracle drugs, only eating properly and exercise. I hope it continues this way but I am not to optimistic that it will continue to fall off as it has been. I just wish my belly would dissapear., of course it has some but not quickly enough for me. Oh well, can't have everything, damnit!
12-04-2002, 08:30 AM
Virginia, I am so happy for you!! You've been working so hard... good for you, hon!! :dance: :cb:
12-04-2002, 02:12 PM
Hey girlies! Congrats...yeah, Ellis!!!! that exercise is working chickie-dee!!!
I weighed myself yesterday and I didn't like the numbers so I waited for today...after a healthy on program day yesterday and...drumroll please...
after Thanksgiving and Chanukah....
I'm at 178!!!!
just one pound less than last weigh in day but I'll take it!
Now just have to survive the rest of December and all of my pms-es between now and then. Actually I'm pms right now and have been HUNGRY! But, last night I ate some cheese (1ounce) and some healthyish crackers. The cheese is fat-full but, protein-full too and it satisfied me and normally I would have eaten...well, you know...cookies and icecream and chocolate and whatever else I could get my hands on non-stop! So, I'm a very happy chicklette!
I'm down ten pounds from August 15th when I posted in the meet and greet thread!
lets keep going girls!!!! You all inspire me!!!!
and Den...too funny...when I read Ellis' post I immediately thought the same thing...and I'm planning on it too
because as I'm losing I notice them dropping.
not getting any smaller mind you...just slowly getting lower and lower and lower.
guess my belly had been holding them up!
And Velvet chicky...oh, honey...we have had the best boobie discussions...if I can find any of the old ones I'll direct you to them!
You'll totally relate.
Anybody know where they are? I think in LesBiAlternachicks and Friends?
going to the gym today...I'm going to be a lean, mean, thong wearing machine!!
12-04-2002, 02:27 PM
Whooooo hoooooo Suuuuuuuuuuuuuue!!! :dance: :cb:
Geez, I was just going to go and eat something bad and now that I've read your post I can't do it. Damn. Maybe some coffee...
12-04-2002, 03:20 PM
I just made myself an omlet and it was yummy. Brocolii, onion, celery, green pepper, and spinach. Was very filling too. Works on the cravings. I am going to really try to avoid salty and sugary things this week, because I am PMS and do not want to gain if I can help it. Fruit is a good sub for sugar, and I am really not a salt nut anyway. Water,water, water!! I think that is the key especially for this time of the month.
12-04-2002, 04:20 PM
Yeah that would be great Sooz, I would like to read those. I keep my ample bosom hidden with big shirts because I always get stares if I don't, and lots of (very rude) people think it is their perfect right to make loud comments on them. Jerks.
