Good Morning Everyone,
It is cold here again!! :( I'm very sad about that. It's chilly enough that I am considering turning on the heat. UGH!!
I have to confess that I haven't been so good checking my sugar the past couple of days. It was my baby shower yesterday AND I DID NOT EAT THE CHEESECAKE. I felt very virtuous. :D I did eat the fruit and SF cake though. By the time I got home it was too late to check and then DH's friend from Germany was still here so we had pizza at MIL and I forgot the machine. I promise to do better!!
Have a great day!!

Tomorrow morning is weigh in.... I did really well most of the week... being sick actually helped as I was drinking a lot of fluids and I wasn't hungry. But I was away for Friday night and Saturday and the food they served was so good that I ate too much of it. Having Italian take out last night was not helpful either. But today I did alright. We'll see what the results are tomorrow.
I confirm what Karen said that it is nasty here today. Cold... rainy.. and right now wet snow! brrr
Congrats for your strength Karen! Passing up cheesecake is a big deal!
Have a great start to your week all!

The wedding was fun. And I used banked points for champagne. :0
RR - :lol: You're right, I am on the go a lot. ~ Hope kaylee enjoyed the hockey game.
Karen - wow, super that you passed up the cheesecake!
Happy - good luck at weigh in.
I think I may actually stay home next weekend. DH had wanted me to go to Alabama with him, but then he said it sounds like I need a weekend at home. However, my sister and her 2 kids are planning to come stay for a couple days while on break . . . sigh. Not that it won't be fun, but I just saw her. And boy I could use some time.

Hey all. Wanted to pop in and say :yikes: I can't believe it has been so long.
Just started to read and catch up. CONGRATS to the mama's - wow, it seems like just yesterday I "snuck in" and you were having those little angels. Can maternity leave really be over already?!?
I have been trying to keep up over time. My goal is to stop in at least once a week for motivation (and maybe to post, too).
Wanted to let you all know I am still in the background rooting for you all and trying to gen out frum under that dang horse.
Miss You All!!!!!
Hi Bailey!! It's great to see you! Glad you're at least lurking, if not posting. Please post when you can, and try to drag yourself out from under that horse!! :D
Rabbit- You need to lock yourself in your house alone for a weekend!! I can't believe how busy you are, hope you don't get burned out!!
Dani- How was WI? Hope you're feeling better!
Karen- Congrats on passing up the cheesecake!! That's a major accomplishment!!
RR- NO forgetting to eat missy!! DH missed most of the Devils game yesterday, but found his hat in time for them to score and win! Didn't have time to get Peter in his little shirt.

I have not much time but quickly wanted to pop in and say my first weigh in (since a very long time) was great. I lost 4.6 pounds! Whew! :) I am raring to go and after a few big meals this weekend I am back on my salads for lunch and water and walking. :)
A better reply coming later.
03-31-2003, 02:12 PM
BAILEY!!! Great to hear from you. Please post when you can.
Lauren - oh, I wish I could lock myself in for a weekend! I'm planning to have the family here for Easter dinner and I've got that to plan, plus I've got to work on ds' graduation party and all the little things that I am just not getting done.
Happy - :cb:

Hi everyone, I had a productive weekend and got lots of housecleaning done. DH performed a miracle on the whole outside and everything looks so awesome. He even planted some fresh herbs for us. I've been wanting to do that for awhile. I didn't do so good on the eating - Fri and Sat were okay except for having too much alcohol. Sunday I completely blew my diet. Thankfully the scale hasn't shown it yet. My cousin-in-law just had a baby girl so we went to see her. She is precious!!! I bought them a boppy pillow with matching blanket since so many of you had good things to say about it. They love it and use it constantly so thank you!!
Rabbit, you are one busy lady!! I've had something to do every weekend for awhile now but it's not as crazy as your schedule. Next weekend is the same but after that I hope to lay around for a couple of days. I think alcohol should be negative points since it dehydrates you. :D
Congrats Happyface!! That's a great loss!! I'm down 1 lb and happy with that.
:wave: Hi Bailey!!!! I've missed ya! I almost fell outta my chair when I saw your name under Last Post. I'm with Lauren...get on the horse again. You were always great inspiration for me. Good luck with your weigh-in.
Karen, if it makes you feel any better it's supposed to be 39 degrees when I get up tomorrow morning. :eek: Is this not FL's Spring Break???? You better get back to checking your sugars!! It's important for that bun in the oven. :)
RR, jersey or no jersey?? :D
Have a great week everyone!!
03-31-2003, 09:50 PM
Great job with weigh in!! I am proud of you!!
04-01-2003, 01:27 PM
What gorgeous weather! Hope to get outside some this afternoon, planning to take 30 minutes for it.
Liz - nice that dh got your outside awesome. we need to get to that here. ~ I hate to drink my points, but I decided to go with it and have some Asti at the wedding.
Blu - Welcome!
Just popping in to say hi! It's nice out today, so I may try and take a walk before work.
Have a great day!

Good Morning all,
I've been doing Thank you notes the past couple of days so I've been MIA. The pg is making my carpal tunnel almost impossible to live with. The writting makes my hand so numb that typing has been out of the question. One more reason I am so anxious to get Alex here. I'm tired of the constant numbness and pain in my hand. :(.
Eating and sugars have been OK. We had Chinese last night so sugar was a little high. Not bad though.
I am off today because of a low case load. So far I've only slept really late and sat here watching TV and not doing anything. I'm totally lazy lately.
Hope everyone is having a great day.

We skipped WW last night so I have no idea how I did weight wise, but I know it's been a poor week, I haven't journalled anything and only walked twice, although we did take the long (1.5 miles) walk both times. We're going to have to come up with another longer walk soon this is becoming routine and doesn't tire out the dogs anymore :lol: On a good note my pants keep falling down this morning and since I'm due to start TOM tomorrow this is an encouraging sign.
Oh well it's a new week and I'm starting over (agian :o ). It's beautiful spring day out today so we're going to walk the dogs this afternoon then grill out, it aught to be a nice day :).
Hopefully I'll check back more often again.
Have a great week everyone!!!!

Beautiful day again. We are having a heat wave, supposed to be 85 today - and just Sunday there were snow flurries :dizzy:
My weigh in is tomorrow. I should have a loss. Trying to keep focused here.
Karen - ow, sorry about the carpal tunnel.
Tech - yeah on the pants!
Lauren - hope you got outside to enjoy the weather.
I got a cheesecake ordered for Easter dinner, made my menu plan and also ordered cheesecakes for ds' graduation party. So I'm getting on the ball here . ..

Tech- Congrats on the pants falling down! :lol: Hey, that's a good sign!
Karen- Bummer that the carpal tunnel is bothering you soo much. I don't understand why it becomes worse during PG.
Have a great day all..it's April and I'm in audit h*ll at work. I don't know what it is about April that sponsors like to come and audit us! And with me only being there 1/2 a day, it's harder!
04-03-2003, 12:48 PM
hi all. Just a quick post. My sister and her 2 kids are arriving today for a couple of days so I may be missing. I'm going to weigh in tonight though and I think I'll have a loss.

I lost 3.8 at weigh in last night!
04-04-2003, 05:54 PM
I'm ready for spring to get here (ok my sinuses aren't but that's another story). It was 72 and sunny on Wed and we took a long walk (for us) with the dogs I was in short sleeves had to take my jacket off. Yesterday it was cooler and cloudy, and today its cold and rainy which is supposed to turn to freezing rain and snow tonight :eek: Oh well it could be worse, I could be in the UP (when did you say you were going RR?) they got 26 inches of snow last weekend and have been getting dumped on again late this week. I remember one time laying out in the sun on our porch roof on day and looking at a foot of snow there the next it's really a weird feeling.
On a good note, it wasn't just the one pair of pants on Wed, on Thurs I put on a pair of jeans and had the same problem, I think I'm going to have to start wearing belts :o . And today I did one of my tapes for exercise even though AF arrived yesterday :D. So no matter what the scale says on Tues I'm feeling good, lets hope I can hold it through the weekend :crossed:.
Rabbit - Congrats on the loss :bravo: and have fun with your company.
LBH - Good luck with the auditors. Hang in there and enjoy the nice days.
RR - As the great tomboy all I can say is "pink ruffles and lace at a hockey game?" it gives me the shivers. Actually you all looked real cute.
Karen - Sorry to hear about the hand, hope your feel better soon, when are you due again?
Liz - Good luck with the weekend, I know like me they're sometimes (most of the time) hard for you.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
04-04-2003, 09:39 PM
Tech--It must be Michigan folks cuz DH shivered with pink lace and ruffles at the game also!!!!:lol: :lol: We are heading up for July 4th for 2 weeks...His gramps is turning 90 and we are gonna celebrate and let him meet Kaylee....I feel sorry for DH cuz he cant see his family more often and I see mine every weekend...YEAH ON THE PANTS!!!!!!
Rabbit---Yeah on the loss!!!!
WEll off to bathe...I did both jobs today and I am pooped!!
04-05-2003, 07:43 PM
thanks for all the congrats on my loss! I'm pretty thrilled myself.
My company just left - so life (and eating!) get back to normal. . . atleast until next weekend when I leave town again! tee hee.
