I hear you Krystal!! I am afraid to step on that scale because I fear that mine, as well, will be in 150's :mad:

We just all need to meet up and have a few drinks and cut loose!

Krystal - I am so glad you are so excited, but you have to remember to sleep :lol: How's the healing process going?

Jo - Jello after a workout is a good feeling!!! All those muscles feeling all weird and knowing you worked them hard :D Super great job!!!! I find it hard to believe your DS doesn't like any mexican... but I am so with you on the margarita!! :P

Sum - Sure sounds like TOM is wreaking havoc on your emotions.. hope it passes fast for you. As far as being vain and wanting a tummy tuck? My opinion is: you should do what YOU want to feel good about YOURSELF. If you can afford the procedure and don't mind going through it, if YOU want to have it done.. then you should go for it. You are busting your tail to feel good about yourself, if that last bit is what you need to finish the job, then that is YOUR choice and not up for their opinions to matter ;) Just my two cents
As far as being happy, and feeling healthy and strong - I really do. I have days where my flares happen and I no longer let them get me down; I am determined to keep the exercising up until my body behaves :lol: I was talking to my mom on the phone the other day and telling her how nice it is to lounge by the pool and not be self-conscious around the kiddos - how awesome it is to look back and see how far I have come in just a year :) I am so glad you can hear it through my posts too!

Larry - You seemed to have disappeared again. Hope you are ok!!!

As for me - had "one of those days" at work today. Going to be honest, it really gets my goat and tenses me up when that happens. I wasn't going to do the walking today cause it was so hot out (99 when I got home), but due to the stress, and my original fur boy begging to go out early... I had it. I took him alright and instead of our normal mile track... I took him 2 miles and ran him a half mile of it :lol: I think it made us both feel better - though he hasn't stood up much since :rofl: I still have Ab Bootcamp to do tonight too - so will be a good calorie burn day for me.
Have a super night!

Isn't it true that we are all just a body of complainers!! I find this true among most people--myself included!!

Star: I really wish you all would send some of that heat wave EAST!!! It has been in the 50s and 60s here and in the 40s at night. The high Saturday in Nashville is supposed to be 82, but it will NOt be that at 7am. It will be more like 55 :cry: I went to Goodwill and bought a jacket to toss b/c I know I going to be cold.

Kristiina: I have to echo Star's advice about the tummy tuck. It sounds to others like the easy way out, but let them think whatever they want. It's your body! Feel good in the skin you're in! :lol: Isn't that a commercial somewhere?

Jo & Alaskan & Larry & Lurkers :wave:

AFM: I'm up early getting ready to go on an overnight camping trip. I am INSANE!! This sounded like a fabulous idea last week when I was laid up on the couch, but this week--it is a disastrous plan. I have so many things I needed to do before Nashville. Working Monday put me out BIG TIME!
Ok, so I know we were all gung ho for stopping all that darn logging of food, but I must admit, I HATE HATE HATE 151. I hate 150. On February 18, I was 141!!! WTH happened? Binging? Spiking? IDK, but I have got to do something to get this groove back together & quickly!
Tahoe is 3 weeks away!
Did I mention my niece is graduating nursing school May 11? We are having a huge party for her May 12 & we fly May 13 to Tahoe.
Then, **BAM** summer is here!
Let the pool parties begin :swim:

I'm rambling….
I'm extremely depressed over this 150 mark.
Maybe I should join the "Depression & Weight Loss" support group.
OMG…did I say that aloud????

I have been playing around with making greek yogurt ice cream and it is soooooo yummy. Here is the link I have been working from, but I have been doing strawberry and honey. I used my blender instead of a food processor. Tastes like soft serve fro-yo.
http://www.anediblemosaic.com/?p=6328&cpage=1#comments

Today I am going to mix one package of FF/SF pudding mix to 1 quart yogurt and freeze it. Then I will put cocoa nibs in while processing and maybe some nuts. Yummmmmmm. I have been writing down all kinds of ideas of mix ins and flavors I want to try.

MMMMMMM :drool:
Thank you for this link!!
I intend to try this one really soon :)

Okay girls, we have to remember it is just PMS talking and that weight on the scale is the bag of water that comes with it. This too shall pass (spin that ring Kristiina). We will get through this and back on the weight loss train :grouphug:
Sum, I just made my first (successful) homemade greek yogurt last week and I love, love, love it. I plan to make another batch today or tomorrow from a bit of the last batch, and so on and so forth. And yes, that way you can use organic milk, with as much fat milk as you want and I am finding out you can control the sourness of it by how long you let it incubate too. I found this site the most helpful, but there are all kinds of different methods if you google it.

As for the tummy tuck, you know I am all for it. I would be in the bed next to you if I could, me and my messed up belly :rofl:

K9, camping now? You make me tired just thinking about your week!

Star, I hope work is better to you today. Way to take it out on the fur boy though :lol:

Krystal - Acck! I am so sorry to hear of the 150s. You were the one that figured out how to break your long plateau though, so no doubt you will figure this out. I am betting it's muscle replacement - afterall, you have gotten abs since and it took muscle tone to lift the hiney to the perfect spot like you did. Just a thought. I would gladly send you some of our heat here - have a feeling it's going to be a brutal summer. Today is supposed to be cooler, then tomorrow they are calling for high 70's and rain (that's cold)... but then back up again. I will take it though, my family in Maine just got snow :O I don't have to shovel the sunshine :)

Jo - all you all are going to be finishing your TOM and I am just about to start. Not looking forward, but so far have been able to hold on to my positivity (when usually I am paranoid depressant, :lol:)

Sum - :wave:

Another insane eating day for me :mad: I wonder if there is any sort of medicine that could help with PMS cravings?
I am fasting today. I feel hungry...crazy because I am sure I ate 3000 calories yesterday. It will be a loooong day, but this cycle has to stop.

I will check back later with personals....

ate well today....went to the gym today....solved 4829 arguments amongst kids at work today, doled out some consequences and sent one child home early for bad behavior/violence

made a crockpot stew that everyone loved...meted out more consequences to the teenager who thinks he can get away with stuff....attended the board of directors meeting for an education organization that i participate on

cleaned the kitchen....put the littlest bug to bed and now i can sit down for the day

How's my bloated group of friends doing today? :lol:

I am just alright. I am on day 2 of TOM, I slept like poopola last night and I still feel watered down. Other than that, I am good ;).

Got my walk in, but that will probably be it for today. Just gonna get done what I need to and let the day lead me where it does. A nap may be in order.

I made my 24 hr. fast yesterday, ended at 2:00pm. Today, I will just eat normal and maybe try to get a somewhat shorter fast in again tomorrow. I hope they are doing me some good, because I still eat the same amount of calories so it doesn't work for me that way. I know the reason some people fast is to cut down on the calories. I seem to eat the same amount whether I fast or not :shrug:

I have some new pics I want to post, but don't have the energy right now.

Hope everyone is hanging on, riding out this wave.

Woo-Hoo TOM is here :rolleyes: Krystal 151 for me this morning as well :mad: I feel like :moo: I had to remove my wedding rings last night because I was afraid they were going to cut circulation, I am sooo bloated. -- Cravings are gone now tho :woohoo: so once this bloat leaves, maybe I will be back down to 148.

I have not walked for 2 days, I just did not feel like it. My hip hurts and I thought by taking a few day break could do some good. P will be home tonight and I am sure he wants to walk with me each day for the next 3 days. -- Welcome home honey :devil: ... hehe; he may wanna walk out because both of his ladies are under the spell of TOM. :D (My poor son, who can not escape).

Jo I slept poorly as well, I was soooo HOT! I had to wash my sheets today :( mid 40's really SUCK! Part of my higher weight could be the fact that I drank 1 liter bottle of water last night. I kept waking up parched! -- Congrats on your fast!! Do you think it is getting easier? -- I ate today until 12 noon and I am fasting till 12 noon tomorrow. Like I said, my insane cravings are gone.... Now I think I can do my flat belly cure diet. Wanna join me?

Alaskan solved 4829 arguments amongst kids at work today... not 4831? Hehe! You go girl!

Krystal I am sorry for the 151!! maybe once this race is over you can eat lighter and less carbs. -- But 151 just sucks!! Is your toe ready to run the race? I will keep thinking about you all day on the 28th. What time do you start running? You will get loads of positive vibes from me :hug:

Star Any relief on the heat front?

Well I am off to take a shower and make myself looking all pretty for my hubby :) After 20 years of marriage, my heart still takes an extra beat when he gets home. Esp. when he has been gone for 3 nights. I missed him!!!

Alaskan: You are the 2nd busiest person i know!!

Kristiina & Jo: TOM has left the building!! Thank the Lord!!

Star: I'm still awaiting a heat transfer! :lol:

As reported on MFP: My toe is 96% now..almost completely well--THANK YOU DR. APPLING!
This excerpt from an email sent to me by one of my MFP friends:
"...My first full marathon was the country music. We stood in the corrals during the most torturous storm. Water was up to our ankles & we were soaked. The race was delayed for over an hour while storm passed. Rain stopped & sun came out in full force. It was awful! About mile 18 they were handing out ziplocs full of ice & water. I was so depleted. And sunburned!!! Yuck! I survived...barely, and went on do do 2 more marathons. Have no desire to do country music again since the weather is so unpredictable this time of year."

When it rains here, it's not just a little morning shower..it's effin torrential storms! So completely unpredictable too. Complete flooding followed by tornadoes....especially this time of year.
As a matter of fact, I'm surprised we haven't had one yet! :crossed: that we don't!!

More later. I'm packing.....AGAIN!
Oh, and our camping trip was just horrid with 50-65mph wind gusts with a effin wind advisory both days :tantrum:
DH and I came home early & he didn't even get to fish!!

alaskanlaughter
04-26-2012, 10:49 PM
lol i like to be busy :) it was a good day at work, eating has been well...veggies n cheese for dinner, a little later will have a small protein shake...im home with the boys tonight, DH is going out to ride his motorcycle for awhile

tomorrow is a usual friday....running the boys around, working, etc...saturday is a work day for my teenager...who got in trouble

he stole a LOT of money from his brother's piggybank and lied about it....i explained some things that scared him, such as what happens when teenagers commit crimes, police, juvenile court etc etc and how they have to do community service hours to make up for their crimes...and then i assigned him a community service day of helping do yard work for a friend of mine who is pregnant with twins and has no one to do those things for her

hope i handled it right *sigh*

Quick post before I head out:
Today's wt: 149
Happy about that.
Spoke to a MD yesterday, who affirmed my knowledge that I can't be medicated for underactive thyroid, even with "low end of normal".
It has to be something else.
I also have Iron-Deficiency Anemia. I inherited it from my mom. Perhaps that's the culprit.

Moving on to the race: As I have told you all before, I live in tornado alley it seems! The south is known for torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes!
As a result, there was a tornado south of Nashville last night, in the town of Franklin. I have relatives there--one of whom is running the 1/2.
There is NOT supposed to be that type of activity today or tomorrow :crossed: NO RAIN!!!

I'm super hyper :hyper: as are all of my friends that are participating. There is 5 of us in all, with 2 other girls going to volunteer at the Finish Line!
7 ladies together for a post-race party!!
I can hardly wait :)

I hope you all are doing well. I miss you guys! It's not the same not sharing everything with you, but I will update more as I can!!

Happi Friday :flow1:

Race Time: April 28, 7am CST

its the end of friday for me :) cleaned house this morning, worked out this morning, weighed in at 192.4 after my workout, which is a NEW LOW (!) for me...hope it sticks around...but ive seriously NEVER seen that low of a weight in my entire adult life

also on the field trip yesterday i could walk down the aisle of a school bus without having to wiggle my hips around to get through, my hips didnt even touch the seats by a long shot!! so that was cool :D

busy at work with very little staff today....went to a bonfire tonight and ate fresh-caught baked salmon which probably put me a little over on calories but it was very healthy

I am getting sick :( I felt it coming on last night, somehow I always get a stiff neck and back. And I was really cold. Cam had a DH, and I sat at the field from 3;30-8:30 pm, and I was miserable by the time we got home. Weather was cold!! He was supposed to have another DH today, but it was cancelled; I did a happy dance :dance:

A good thing about feeling off; I am not hungry at all :lol: I will take weight loss any way it comes. I was 150 pounds this morning :( Pound less than yesterday, but 5 pounds more where I would like to be at right now.

So it will be a couch day for me. About to watch a movie; Up In The Air.

was a busy saturday like usual, running errands, grocery shopping etc....worked out today...towards the end of the evening i started getting a bad headache which is unusual...had some water, had some Bayer, still not much better...proud of myself for resisting the junk food...i had a banana and some lettuce with raspberry vineiagrette and then i felt better...im also veryyyy tired so im going to bed next

younger son has his cousin over for the night...older son has a friend over for the night...and the newest "son" is also here...and amazingly it's quiet!! lol but half of them are asleep

i'll be up in the morning to run newest son to work, then i have alot of laundry to do....if the weather is nice i've mapped out a route on the backroads for an 8-mile bike ride...if it's cloudy, windy or rainy i wont be bike riding...and the chances of rain are always high as we live in a rainforest after all lol

Scale rewarded me 140's today. I was sure that I never had to see 150's again... kinda made me :mad: So now that TOM is here, I can focus on my eating for the next 2 weeks, and I am going to try my hardest to get down to 145. -- Now insane eating is over, and I think the peak of my moodiness happened yesterday. :boxing: So I am ready to focus. Jo I AM doing the 3 day belly fat cure; Mo,Tu and Wed. Wanna join me this week? I am fasting today until 4 pm or so (22h fast). -- I know you want to fast on Tuesdays-Wednesdays, but maybe you could do it Mon, Tue and Thrs?

I am still feeling a bit sick; I have aches and pains on my muscles and joints and just general malaise.

We have a FUN party to go to. Yesterday was Dutch Queen's birthday and her last name is Orange. Each year my Dutch friends throw a party where we all dress in orange and bring orange food and drinks. Party starts at 4 so I will fast until then. I won't drink anything. :dizzy: which will be a challenge with my crazy friends around.

As for me, got on the scale to find it down even more!!! Almost a full pound more gone and I am in awe! All I did was eliminate the highly refined/processed grains such as muffins and breads... and now after so many months it is coming off! I had read that those of us with immune-deficiency diseases could have issues without eliminating those things and figured it was worth a shot. Never in my wildest did I expect it to work though!

Still haven't dared the scales, but will face them this week some time. Shouldn't be too bad with TOM gone now, but still probably won't be good either :dizzy:.

I am not sure about that diet. I am no good with the "eat this food" kind of diets because I am kinda picky, he lost me at "canned salmon". I suppose I could substitute foods out for others. Do you think it is just low carb and good fats? That is what it kinda looks like to me. Do you have to do 3 days in a row? I need to do something to kick myself in the pants, I just have to decide what to change, if anything. Maybe I should go low carb again for a little while. And maybe I could do that diet, just subbing meats I like for others. I think the red wine and chocolate at night is a little weird. Oh, I am so confused and undecided. I just want this remaining fat GONE!

Sum38
04-30-2012, 12:06 PM
jo Started feeling lonely without you :D I think the whole point is to go no sugar, low carb, high on lean protein. I think the wine and chocolate is there for the antioxidants. 80% coco chocolate is NOT sweet...lol...but it goes really well with tart dry wine. If you don't want the wine; have a few pieces of tart chocolate.

I am totally with you. Now that TOM is here and almost gone, the raving maniac woman is gone and it has been replaced with smart thinking one...:lol3: Did I mention how much I hate TOM???? :lol: I think being 40 sucks. I had none of these problems in my 20's. TOM came and went, but now I am a total looney person 7-10 days before hand...sheesh!

So Jo, we are going to be good girls, follow our eating plans and really push for losses during the next two weks!! Deal? I feel I just want to be done. So done. I want to be a (real) size) 6.

Today I am following the belly fat cure. I skipped bfast and my lunch will be served at 1 pm with grilled chicken and some veggies.

Luckily I woke up at 149 pounds. I feel like a loser. I wated to be at 136 pounds by June 1st. Now if I really kick butt I will be 145 pounds :( BUT it is my own doing. No one to blame. I need to tape my cakehole shut for 2 weeks out of each month. Hehe! -- Atleast I am not trying to pass out any excuses :D

Kristiina: I hope that you are able to do that diet this week without any problems. When TOM is around, it's hard to follow our plans, much less an even more restricted one. You'll get to 136, just keep moving forward!!

Jo: You are absolutely right! It is time to finish this up and get into maintenance. Although, once you are here, it is hard to maintain. The party defo doesn't stop once you arrive, which is why it's important to invest in other goals besides weight loss. You can do it!!

Star: :yay: on dropping some additional pounds!! So excited for you :) Your commie, "Never in my wildest did I expect it to work though!" reminded me of when I did Spike Diet. I read all these posts of people doing it, but I just never expected it to work on me!! I was thrilled when it did.

Yah, I am motivated as all get out, but I still don't know what to eat :?:. I hate when I get like this, I am questioning what I know works just because I had a bad weekend. I start to blame the whole process, when I know in my head it was just the stupid weekend/TOM.
I don't even know what I am going to feed the family today or tomorrow. Maybe I just need to get to the meat market and cook up a few meats that I can pair with veggies and salad for me and add a side of something carby for the rest of them to get us through. I was thinking of eating in a 5 hour window today, ending at 7ish, and then not eat tomorrow until after the track meet (around 7 or 8) so I could get a 24 hour in. Then I start questioning that, thinking that I just eat the same number of calories no matter how big my window is, so why am I fasting so long???
What is wrong with me, why am I so indecisive right now?
I did decide on a weight lifting program that I started today and I am pretty excited to be doing some weights again. It is an old program that I was doing last year around this time that I really like. Took me a while to decide as I was sifting through my options. Good thing I don't have to make any major life decisions today! I am a wreck!
Ugh!

Welcome home! We are so proud of you! I just have to tell you I have been running on and off for a long time and I don't think I would ever have it in me to run a 1/2 mary, so kudos to you!

Jo: I TOTALLY know you could do a 1/2! I'm already planning another one for September or October, so that I can run the Memphis 1/2 in December!!

Argh! What I miss when I get busy!!!! :)

Krystal - Welcome home!!!! We were all on edges of our seats waiting to hear how you did... don't think you could find a more proud group of girls when you finished that 1/2!!!!!

Kristiina - I am so glad that TOM is allowing you to return to yourself again :lol: I totally feel you on the crazy person during that now - and I never used to experience emotional PMS symptoms at all!!!!

Jo - I think you could totally do a 1/2 if you put your mind to it :D Hopefully your indecisiveness about everything will leave soon. Strength training program sounds great :)

Alaskan - :wave:

Didn't get a chance to workout last night. Super busy couple of days and less sleep then normal (not much left, lol). Still feeling great though, and surprisingly accomplished. I got my student ID # in my email... which means... I AM OFF THE WAIT LIST for school!!!! More paperwork in order to get it going, but what an awesome thing!!!! Still not sure how to fit it in, but it's amazing what you can do when you have to :lol: Have a super day!
