:wave: girls.

Sorry I've been MIA. Got a job at Walmart and they have been giving me crazy hours. Depression is kicking my azz these days and I gained 5 lbs last week. :( Gonna try to do better this week, even though TOM is in town. >.<

Hi Shari, hope you're feeling better soon, congrats on the job :)

Hi Mavis!

Doing OK, feel like a blimp these days. My DH is still working crazy hours so I'm on my own most of the time - hopefully it tapers off before the baby comes or I may go crazy! Trying to keep the gains under control, we'll see on Thursday...

:wave: girls.

WI from Friday: -3.8

I'm so-so about that. I know it's because all I've been eating is PB&J and drinking green tea. I don't have food stamps or money (next three paychecks have to go to my landlady to catch up on my rent).

I think I'm gonna change the thread title because there are so few of us posting. We have less than three weeks left!

Hi ladies -

Jeni - congrats on the 2 pounds!!!

Shari - Well a loss is a loss right :) Hopefully now with the new job you can get things back on track. How are you feeling otherwise?

Well I'm still here, still gaining - ugh! I have my 34 week appt tomorrow, so getting there but not fast enough at this point. I plan on nursing again but I don't know how long I'm going to last this time working full time, two very active boys and a DH that's never home - I'm already stressing about it and she isn't even born yet! Well my weigh in is tomorrow and judging by the scale this morning it's not going to be pretty - 3rd trimester is the worst! Keep up the good work ladies!

Hi guys.

Emily~Wow. 34 weeks already? Ya easy for me to say I know. As for nursing, see if you can work it into your day, if not. . .its not a failure. Dont stress!

Shari~The titles fine, I didn't change it since there weren't many posts. Take care of yourself. You can usually get some cheap frozen veggies to get into your diet.

Today was another good day (me and my Ipod) I haven't eaten enough, I'm not hungry for a change. I'm not sure why, but I will make sure I get to the 1200 mark with dinner.

W 64 oz
E extra laps
E 1200 cals
D good day.

Emi, good luck to you! Does seem (to Jeni & I both apparently) that it's gone really fast, I am sure because we are not the one's carrying her!!

Try for no worries, it will work or it won't. Don't beat yourself up! You are certainly going to have your hands full, but I am sure the boys will be anxious to "help" they are at great ages for that!

Shari, hope things are going ok for you.

I am moving in the right direction!

W 100
E Crunches, stairs and hula. Ran last night, knees are sore this am
E POP
D long day, working til 6 then meeting tonight that will likely go to 9. Ick

Shari - take care of yourself! I've never battled depression but my mom has bouts of it and it's very hard for her even with medication. I'll be thinking about you - stay strong!

Jeni - I do that too somedays, just put the earbuds in and ignore everyone else. Glad you're doing well.

Mavis - Once nursing becomes more stressful than enjoyable I know it's time to stop. So we'll just see how it goes, I'm not going to beat myself up about it (hopefully!).

Yes time has flown but is going by soooo slow at the same time! Can't wait meet this little girl soon. Have an appt today so I'm going to meet my hubby for lunch beforehand since I've barely seen him the last few weeks. Have a great day everyone!

Today is starting off good for my work free weekend! I ran 3.25 miles today (yay me) then walked to cool down. The weather is beautiful.. . . And I am down another 2 pounds from tuesday. Its weird, since I'm not doing much different, except the de-stressing music on breaks. I guess taking stress out does help!
