Hope everyone has a great week.

Good Morning!
Today is my first day on Simply Filling/Core. Breakfast will be the hardest for me.. I'm not a big breakfast person so I'm going to get some fruit and a couple hard boiled eggs into me.

Good Morning Ladies:)

The sun is shinning and that means I will be able to walk along the beach today. I'm going to meet my friend Rita for lunch and than we'll take a walk along the beach.Tomorrow is suppose to rain again. Temps right now is 58 and its not suppose to rise any further that low 60's.NOT COMPLAINING LOVE THIS KIND OF TEMPS,but my tomatoes wish it was a little higher.

PAM-Thanks for the new pages, and sorry for missing your ZZZ's and having to wake so early. I'm also sorry to hear about your legs,did you take anything for the pain or are you putting a cold compress on them??REMEMBER PRICE[protection,rest,ice,compression & elevation] all fro a hurt body part. Hope you feel better.

ONTOnlybluemomma-:welcome: to the board, you'll find lots help & support on this thread. I myself not on the WW core plan but I do count calories,and I watch my carbs.

Have a great day

Welcome Jenn. I do simply filling too, although been a little lax lately.

Maryann, enjoy your walk on the beach and lunch with your friend. We are suppose to only get to 85 today. Been in the high 90's so the 80's are surely welcome. My legs aren't in pain, just ache really bad, like a bad toothache. I'm sure it's from all the work I'm helping my daughter with, in her new salon. My husband is getting upset that I'm doing so much of the work. The other girl going into partnership with her has only been there 2 days and didn't do much, but she is young and not very experienced in painting.

I used to make totes (purses) and this former customer wrote me while I was in Florida, wanting an ipad case. I told her she had to wait until I got back to KY, as I didn't have my sewing machine in Fl. She wrote and and sent me the pattern she wants, and I'm in the process of making that, in between all the other stuff I'm doing. The case is more like a mini quilt, so I'll have some hand stitching to do. I love to sew, but really just too busy with other things, but I told her I'd do it.

I think I need a nap.

06-13-2011, 11:53 AM
Good morning, all. I got up early (not as early as Pam) and had my Core cereal & ff milk for bfast. We have tons of fresh watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, and grapes so I'm good to go for any "emergency" snacking.

Jenn, your bfast sounds good. And :welcome: to the boards again. We're glad to have you here.

Pam, I think you can do just about anything. You're a very talented Chickie for sure

Maryann, walking is good exercise. Curtis got out and walked the loop around our field this morning while I watered plants along the fenceline.

Rhonda, I have the mag ready to mail and will go to the P O tomorrow. You should get it while we're in Houston.

Speaking of Houston, I prob won't be online from Wed-Sat.

I have OA tonight. Life is good.

06-13-2011, 05:42 PM

06-13-2011, 07:47 PM
Hi, Ems. I am well. Just busy getting ready for the National Senior Games. (used to be called National Senior Olympics). You probably did better on you exams than you're thinking. Keep positive thoughts--and be glad they're over.

06-14-2011, 12:53 AM
I have walked more in the last few days than ever ( with a broken foot.)
Walking odd with one foot and the other heel has made my back & neck sore.
I have been almost compulsive about getting my list done & and not even stopping when my foot is killing me. I must want to have order in my life & think making long list and doing each item will help.

I am doing some fun projects . I am making a wall coat hanger from one of Robin's oars that he used on the river. I have figured out a way to use it wthout having to put any screws or nails through it. I'll post a picture when its done.

The orthopedic Dr today said my foot didn't need to be cast or set. I just have to wear the stiff boot for 6 weeks.

Good morning Ladies:)

Going to have sprinkles in a few minutes not going out today have a date with my washing machine & dryer. I also have to get the upstairs cleaned to my sisters visit.

Had a great time with my friend Rita but I was hurting and couldn't walk like we planned after a BBC meal. We had to seat on the benches along the beach.This morning my knee is swollen like a big balloon. Have to put some ice on it.TG my hand is hurting.

PAM- As I posted above I couldn't get my walking done as my knee & hip was really bothering me. TG the temps are lower than yours its 62. Be careful not over doing standing to much on your legs You DH may be right and you have to slow down a bit,I know its easier said than done.

SANDRA-I love walking and I'm so disappointed that I can't walk like I used to. My friend told me to wear a brace when walking along the leach just like the athletes do.I'm going to take her advice. My sister told me I should walk to the mail box but the street has a deep incline and I fuff & puff going up that hill.

EMS -Not to good,have to rest & bout ice on my swollen knee.

NANCY -Don't over due your walking if your foot back and neck is bothering you rest is the be meds.

Have to go, have a date with my washing machine & dryer

Have a great day

Nancy, we'll be looking for those photos. How's your eating? Did you go back on Simply Filling? Core?

Maryann, send us some sprinkles. I almost burned up while shooting outside this AM. I was out there over 3 hours.

We went for lunch today. Our local cafe feeds me Core foods. Am I spoiled or what!

06-15-2011, 03:55 AM
I am not really doing well at sticking to any eating plan I decide.
But I have realized that I am only hungry for one good meal a day and just light things other than that.
When I eat out I usually made decent choices and small portions but the calories still add up fast.

In January Robin got a nice new Mac Laptop.

My laptop is Windows and I have been trying to learn on the Mac.
Then when I switch back and use mine it is hard because everything about the
way you click and right click & backspace and highlight & do folders is different. The mac is nice with photos but I am having a hard time with
my photos when I try to find the folder to add the photo to another site.

I need to choose one and sell the other I think.

06-15-2011, 10:01 AM
good morning chickies.

Nancy, you need to take it easy while your foot heals. Everything can wait, it will still be there tomorrow. I always had a problem finding things when I had Vista. I have windows 7 now and love it. Never used a Mac, I would probably be lost.

Sandra, have fun at the shoot. I know you will do well. Nice to have a place that serves Core.

Maryann, you take it easy too. Sorry your knees are bothering you. You might need more surgery. That is what happened to me. The scope and cleaning just didn't do the job. Hope that's not the case with you.

ems, good to see you. Hope you are doing well.

I hear thunder and we are expecting boomers today and maybe the rest of the week.

At my daughters salon, we have the bathroom and one small room to paint and we are done. It's been a long process, but the end will be worth it. They get a new floor in the next few days and then it's time to decorate. My husband it putting in a new pedestal sink today.

06-15-2011, 11:46 AM
Hey everyone!.

Busy day here today.. trying to get some home improvements done (FINALLY ugh.. taking too long!).. Planning on taking the little ones for a walk on the trail this afternoon after nap time.

Good Morning Ladies:)

Took it easy this morning ,and this afternoon I going out with my friend Mary to see Midnight in Paris". My sister said its a funny movie as it was written & produced by Woody Allen.

Tomorrow I have to bring some of my summer clothes that don't fit me to the Emerald Drift Shop.I'm also bringing some sheets & pillow cases that I never used. Have another month before our churches flea market comes up and than I can get rid of things I don't use anymore bowls,and some kitchen gadgets,baking pans etc.all useable items as they don't take junk. And last but not least I have to get my junk man to bring lots of stuff for the dump.Old Christmas trees with ornaments & electronics that the flea & drift shops don't want.

SANDRA-The Sprinkles never came ,need some for myself as my poor tomatoes are getting watered.

PAM-Thanks, I hope I don't need another operation on my knee, I think I must of have twisted my leg when I was stair climbing doing my laundry and than going up stairs to get the area ready for my sisters visit.

Have to go and eat my lunch. Have a great day

06-15-2011, 08:35 PM

Hi All:

I'm being a bit quiet this week. But, I got the results of the MRI on my right knee and I have iliotibial bursitis and patellar tendonitis and will start phyiso on Monday. I have to back off the heavy weight work on the legs for a while, but I'm sure I'll be back to it.

DH has been getting medical reports that are telling him to change- now. We shall see. One minute I think he will, then, no. That's the way we humans are as we well know.

A friend of ours died on Saturday and we went to his funeral today. He was in DH's highschool class and his wife, now widow, was in mine. We saw lots of friends today. The funeral made me wish that I had known him even better than I did. He was, among many other things, a volunteer fire fighter and the funeral procession--right through town--was led by fire trucks and the fire department flew its flag at half-mast. Sweet.

Have a good night, everyone.

06-15-2011, 08:48 PM
ems...Sandra is a world-class archer! (And my favorite cousin.)

Speaking of cousins-here is a great story:
my mother had a twin sister who had a son, Robert. He was my cousin. He had a daughter and she had a son. I just learned this week that this son lives in the same town that I do and rented a house here in this same town for four years from my former sister-in-law and the house was managed by her son, my nephew. BUT, no one knew they were related! Now, we know and are planning a family get together. We found each other when my cousin's daughter sent me a Friend request on FB. Amazing.

06-15-2011, 09:17 PM
Hi Ladies. It official, out WW at work session started today. I'm 11 pounds from my lifetime goal. Not too bad, could be worse. I'm going to update my tracker and keep it up to date.

Just wanted to stop by quickly -- GAME 7 STARTING. GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

06-15-2011, 10:55 PM
Congratulations Paula! :woohoo:

06-16-2011, 09:48 AM
OK first off -- WOOO HOOO!!! Great Job to the BRUINS! Bringing home the cup!!

Got that off my chest - we are all just giddy here in MA. Awesome game, Awesome team.

I finished day 1 on the new program - I am doing points. I was reading all the books last night and one thing caught my attention. Since vegetables and fruits are all free and I need to eat all 29 points a day - I need to make sure I am getting enough protein and whole grains. I think doing simply filling I would not focus on that much. So, I had an egg and whole wheat bagel thin for breakfast with my fruit and I have a can of tuna to go on my salad.

For those doing SF - be sure you are getting in the protein. The one thing in the materials is that if you don't eat all the daily points, you'll not lose. So if you eat tons of fruit and veggies and little whole grains and proteins on SF and not losing, this may be why.

Day 2 for me!

Good Morning Ladies:)

Loved the movie Midnight in Paris and I recommend seeing it even if your not a movie buff. After that my friend took me to Soprano's for a birthday dinner.If you can proof that you have a birthday in June you get your meal FREE.It seems it every Wednesday.

We have a beautiful sun shiny day, I'm going down to the beach as see if I can walk the street in my community is difficult to walk as its on a incline and I get winded doing so.

EMS-Thanks,I hoping that I will be able to walk a little along the beach.

RHONDA-Sorry about your knee,but I sure PT will take some of the pain away. I have to start to do my knee exercise & stretches again to get my knee back into shape again. Sorry about your DH friend passing. He seem like a hero in my eyes being a fireman and a pall barrier. Sending prayer your way. What a amazing story about your relatives being so close to where you live.

PAULA-:carrot:Congrats :carrot:on being so close to your goal,wish it was me as I was going down to the 140[26-lbs]away but now my doctor told me 150 that would bring me down to [16-lbs] Yes congrats to the Bruins for winning the Standley Cup.

Have to go,have a nice day

Good Morning Ladies:)

My friend invited me to a BBQ yesterday,and we had a lot of fun with the people that i met. Today is back to getting the house straighten before my sister comes this Monday. can't stay o n the board that long as we are expecting thunder storms and I have to be up stairs with the sky lites.Don't need to see the lightening while getting the upstairs bathroom done.

Other wise nothing new.except I down to 166 this morning and I haven 't been that low since before Leo had his cancer. May this low calorie low carbs are working. Hopefully it will stay that way for tomorrows W-I.

EMS-WHOOOOOOOOO!! 1.5 loss that great big:congrat: I sure you make your birthday goal.

Have to go will be back tomorrow morning. Have a great day.

06-17-2011, 10:08 AM
morning chicks.

ems. woohoo, 1.5 lbs. That is great. I've been maintaining, but need to get serious. My dr. wants me to try to lose 6 lbs before I see him in Sept.

Maryann, we are expecting rain today. It's cloudy and sprinkles but the heavy rain is expected later in the day.

Rhonda, sorry about your knee. Hope you are following dr.s orders.

have a great day everyone.

06-17-2011, 10:19 AM
Good Morning Chicks! I'm still on program but racing around like crazy. We hope things will slow down soon. Our computer is not functioning properly so we have an appointment with the Apple genius today. Hope he can help without too many dollars. Our dollar are flying out the door lately.

06-17-2011, 11:13 AM
Go to the mini-goals section and read "Half the woman I used to be..."

06-17-2011, 01:31 PM
Hi everyone. I'm doing OK on plan. Day 3 for me. We had my dd's school show last night and there were refreshments afterwards. After I unconsously ate one cookie, stopped myself from reaching for a second. Didn't even think! And there was fruit. I estimated and counted the points for yesterday. For now I need to remind myself on what are good food choices. At least I stopped after one.

EMS - congrats on the loss!

Rainy day here today - tomorrow MUST be sunny! We are having DDs class to our house for a year end party. Once I get home tonight and finish with dinner, I need to run to Target to get some cups and then make cup cakes. DD has a karate test from 9-12 tomorrow, then the party is 2-4. Busy day for me - I MUST plan my food today. Add that to the things to do tonight......eek! Only another few days and she's out of school for the summer and this year end craziness will be over.

Good Morning Ladies:)

Got all the up stairs polished & clean,as I haven't be up there since Nov.
now I get to go over the downstairs bath and I will be finished,and can rest a bit,before my next crew comes in July.

Went down on the scale 1.5 and its all curbing my carbs to low 132/151 average.Have to get weight off now that my knees are bad,and can't carry this extra weight anymore.

PAM-It rained all night,and my tomato plants got an extra drink.It cloudy but all I have to do is go to Walmart of my extra items that I need for my sister's arrival on Monday.

VICKIE-Slow down a little, from your post I can get you are rushing around. Hope you Apple Computer is working again properly,and it doesn't too many. I know I watching pennies & dollars also.

RHONDA-Looked for the Mini goals section but I couldn't find it . Is it in the WW section or the 3 fat chicks forum.

PAULA-Congrats on only eating one cookie and than heading to the fruit. You did good. Proud of you. Hope the sum shining at your DD end of the year party. Don't think is going to rain like they predicted as it cloudy but not enough for rain. Hope I right,want to get out to walmart and I don;t like driving any any kind of bad weather.

Have a great day

06-18-2011, 11:55 AM
On my computer, mini goals section is toward the top of the 3FC site. I don't know how to paste the link in.

Her's is a great story I think.

06-19-2011, 11:03 AM
Good Morning Chicks! Happy Fathers Day to all of your loved ones. Jim and I will have a quiet day today. I need to conquer the paper and "stuff" around the house here as it's gotten out of control. My eating is weird. I've been really hungry lately and not having any luck with dropping the pounds. We've started to go out to restaurants again too much and that is NOT a good thing for weight loss. Even if you eat small portions, you still have hidden ingredients that can raise the caloric and fat values.

What do you all have planned for today?

06-19-2011, 04:31 PM
Hi Ladies:)

Nothing new ,except I got up late again and had to get ready for church.Than I went for brunch and than to the cemetery to put flowers on Leo's grave for Father's Day.

Tomorrow my sister will be here until Thursday.Weather is going to hold up so, I will be able to take her to different stops in town & areas out side of town that she hasn't seen.

Don't know if I will have time to post when my sister is here,if not I see you guy next Thursday.

RHONDA-Thanks anyway I find it.

VICKIE-Thanks for the web site. What a fastening story from Pacifica Bee and her weight loss journey.WoW it must have been a hard and long journey but by her it certainly can be done. Thanks again for the web site.

VICKIE I'm having that problem being my birthday this week I have being taken out with 2 friends[separate times] and its not easy trying to figure out the calories in certain restaurant foods. I found a little trick, that we can do before eating out. Some restaurants have given out the menus & nutrient on WW Dotty's web site along with livingstrong .com Just go to the computer type in nutrient values and the restaurant of your choose some times you get lucky and find the values of different menus. Hope that helps.

I'm staying home watching the golf tournament.

Have a great day

06-19-2011, 04:40 PM
Well, I can tell you that we did NOT have planned for the radiator hose to burst, throwing a wrench into the morning. That includes the tow truck taking the car to the wrong TOWN! They'll bring it back but they said they took it to where Triple A said to go. I think that there must have been just massive confusion, but we should come out of it OK.

We're going to dinner with DH's DD's family. Right now, I'm taking a nap :yawn:

06-19-2011, 07:55 PM
Thanks for the suggestions Mary Ann. I forgot about Dottie's.

Rhonda....oh dear!

06-19-2011, 09:25 PM
Well, as I said, there was confusion. It seems that the tow company took the car where we had asked, so it is here in town. Their dispatcher was confused. It will all work out. I'll be eternally grateful that this didn't happen yesterday when I was on the highway for 2 hours with my great nieces and their grandmother and the temperature was 104F.

We went to one of the barn-like, noisey, fried food places for dinner. The good news is that I no longer enjoy these places at all. I had 2 pieces of fried chicken, without the skin and green beans. That's it. I've still got a few calories for the day left. I just might have a glass of wine.

06-19-2011, 10:14 PM
We're home. I won the National Senior Games Barebow Archery Women 60-64 Division and broke the old record by 200 points. We are literally exhausted. We got home about 10 last night. After the tournament, we had the awards ceremony complete with podium and Olympic music. It was very impressive. We shot for about 6 hours a day for 2 days. Exhausting but fun!

Vickie, I see you're half the woman you used to be. Awesome!!!!

Rhonda, I'm glad you weren't stranded in this heat. We thought we'd die down in Houston, and I think it may be even hotter here.

I'm upset. Curtis' daughter hasn't even called him today. I feel bad for him. She can be very considerate at times and disrespectful at others. I hope she calls tonight.

I apologize for not responding to everyone. I'll be back tomorrow.
