Hello Everyone.....

A New Thread!!!! Yeah!!!! I hope we get some new members also!!!!

OK Lets review what this is all about....

We are all doing something a little different but we are here to help, support, and encourage everyone.... We have are ups and our downs.... we try to stay up.....

I think we should start off with an introduction again for all the newcomers.

I am a newly married (May 3) mother of a 15 & almost 17 year old (TEENAGE DRIVERS - UGH!!!).... challenging to say the least. Was a single mom for 13 years. I work out of the home although I am on the road alot (in sales). I am very unhappy at the way I look and how little motivation and self discipline that I have had over the past few years. I am looking to change all this.

Name: Ursula.... aka Angel

Age: 34 Height: 5'2" Weight: 205 Clothing Size: 16/18

Short Term Goal: 10 Weight Loss by July 4th.

Long Term Goal: 130- 135#ish

Exercise Routine: I will have to get back into routine now that everything is over. Looking at going back to (M-F) 30 min cardio; 30 min Circuit (alternate upper & lower); 10 min stretch
I am also trying to include walking and yoga in with this....

Food Routine: 1400- 1600 calories a day

Trying to follow the 90/10 plan by joy bauer. It is where 90% of the calories are from the good stuff and 10% is from the fun stuff.
May go back to Weight Watchers..... havent quite decided yet.

Water: 8-12 glasses a day

Biggest Weakness: FOOD in the evening.... I graze at night when I am tired. I especially crave sweets.

I know that my goals and plan are pretty well defined and I dont assume that everyone elses is there yet..... I have been really looking at this for awhile.

What I would like to see from everyone else is their starting point.
You can follow what I did above: Name, age, height, weight, size, goals that you have (which dont neccessarily have to be weight related, could be want to walk a mile by 4th of July.... whatever is important to you). Give us a brief introduction and the we can go from there......Anything else you would like to include do so....

I am so glad that all of you are here to help me, encourage me and support me.... THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Hopefully all the old timers will come back and along the way some newbies will come join us.....

I am so glad the wedding and honeymoon are over and hopefully I can now get back to the real world!



How is everyone doing???? What are you wanting to focus on?

Ok Ladies - I am going to do a personal challenge over the next 5 weeks to get myself back into action and on plan.

You have seen my goals from above and i am going to continue on that course along with the following:

1) Take a look at going back on Weight Watchers.... take a look at TOPS.

2) Try for 10,000 steps on the pedometer.

3) Cut out the sweet drinks (Sodas and Sweet Teas, etc).

4) See 5-6 Customers a Day (work related goal).

5) Do at least one evening exercise class.

6) Get 7-8 Hours Sleep.

I have really got to start getting on target. This isnt so much about losing all the weight (which is important!) it is more about health.

I am needing lots of support so I hope everyone is going to be around.

Hello, I love new threads and need to be challenged! Here goes...

My name is Marina, my husband owns a home building business (Ideal Construction) thus my name...Idealperson. I work for the State of Wisconsin in the Probation, Parole and Pardon office, I have four children (ages 18 years to 18 months). I joined Weight Watchers in Jan. 2003 and have lost 44#. I went from a size 18 to a size ten. I want to lose about 12 more pounds to reach my goal. I am 5'7" and hope to be at goal by August. I exercise at Curves x4 per week and do 40-50 sit ups before bed, I drink alot of water and my biggest weekness is sweets and chips. I try to find low fat alternatives, but would be better off without any of them. I would like to find support, ideas, and encouragment to keep on track and maintain my weight loss. Nothing would be more devastating than to work this hard and gain it back!

My next weigh in is June 2 and my goal is to be down 2.5 pounds!:)

44#'s since JANUARY!!!!! WOW!!!!! Another member of ours is in the same great boat - "Losing in Illinois" has lost in the 40's also.... that is so wonderful.... hopefully I can join you soon....

So how has it been for you on WW? I have been thinking about it I just havent been totally commited. I have been to the meetings in the past and have all the toys.... I may just pull them out and see if I like it.... my hardest part is counting the points.... I never think about it until it is too late and I cant remember what I had or the quantity.

We are a good group of ladies and you are more than welcome here.....

OMG She's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And a wonderful honeymoon to boot! Now I don't think that you can beat that deal ifin you tried! Glad that you are back safe and sound. Maybe if we are lucky you have some pics of those beautiul place to share with us!!!!!!!!!! Ok the weight loss thing is going really good for me. I am now into the 180s weighed in yesterday at 188. When I make it to 180 I get highlights. So my goal for the next 5 weeks or so is to make it to 180, exercise at 5 times a week, stay op, have some fun time for myself and ds, and save more for my vacation next month.

Gotta run time to play alarm clock!

Hello Ladies!

Great to see you over here! I guess i will start out with a short intro. My name is Beth. I am 30 years old with a 2 year old dd and a 4.5 year old ds. I have been married for 7 years. I have been overweight since high school. Had one succesful weight loss before I got married. But after two kids gained it all back.

This time around I started out at 200 in Jan and I am now as of today officially 154. Yeah! It is a lot of hard work but well worth it. My main problem was way overeating and once I cut back it has been a miracle. I do exericse 5-7 times a week. I do Walk Away the Pounds, walk outddoors or Ride my bike. I am looking for variety so I don't get bored. I do about 2-4 miles a day depending on time.

Goal right now is to start doing some kind of toning I am one big flab already! I also need to do some research on Keeping it off which is where i really struggle! My final weight loss goal is 125-135.

Okay enough about me. Ideal I am so happy to hear from you! I want to know about Curves. How is it for toning? I don't want to waste my money there if it is not big on that because i am losing the weight at home. Its the toning I am worried about now.
Also do you have people bugging you about how much more weight you want to lose??? I here this several times a week. i know some people are just complimenting me but others seem almost judgemental about it. I am only 5'1 Idon't have the height to my advantage. I would say I am only medium framed as well. I got very irritated today at my TOPS group with several asking me this before the meeting and then during roll call a women asked me in front of everyone. I just feel like I have to justify that I am not starving myself or popping pills! I know this is not a bad problem to necessarily have. But this is one of the things that bothered me the last time I lost weight. I got down to 135. You would have thought I was anaroxeic! I am still going to do what I want to do but just curious how you handle it?

I guess my goals maybe different then some. The last time I did it I really didn't finish what I wanted to do. I never toned my body. I was thin with flab. If I am going to all this trouble I want to look d*m good not just good! I may change my mind later but that is how I feel now. Okay I will stop venting!

I hope the rest of you have a great weekend! I have a lot of work to do so I may not see you until next week! Good Luck staying OP!

Beth, why don't you tell those people that frankly that is your business and none of theirs. You know how you will look or at least have a good idea in your mind and it is afterall your body. As for the tonning I have had really good success with working in some weight training with my workout but these flabby upper arms(underside). That it the hardest one so far.

Angel26519
05-30-2003, 08:16 AM
Hey Everyone!!!!

Beth- Are they asking it in a snide way? And if so it maybe that they are jealous of your success and that they wished it was them - they just dont have the determination that you have been showing.... so then they have to act like you are getting to skinny.

I am also short (5'1.5- 5.2) and medium build.... my goal is going to be somewhere around 125-135... not sure yet.... my daughter is 5'1 and 125# and it is alittle thin for me I think so I will have to wait until I get down there.... you just want to get somewhere that is healthy and comfortable for you and also something that will not be impossible to maintain..... but I think you are doing great and I say KEEP IT UP!!!!!! If I was you I would definetly start lifting some light weights.... it will help with the toning.

Well, I have been trying to get back to normal which is harder than you would think..... trying to get back into all my water and getting rid of the junk food.... going to start back at the gym next week..... have been doing some videos right now.

I am realizing that the weight may always be there for me becuase of all the female things. I am now really going to focus on being healthy and fit.... I am supposed to go back on the hormone shots next month - I havent decided if I want to.

I will try to get some pics up in a couple weeks of Italy....

Hey Everyone!!!!

The shots are from the doctor.... I am missing an ovary and have a major hormonal imbalance.... they are just trying to get them back in line..... i dont know if they will work since i was on several different ones for over 9 months.... but the dr wants to try... we shall see....

How was everyone over the weekend???? I did pretty good at meal times although I did a 2 chocolate chip cookies yesterday..... but I dont think 2 is bad.... I dont want to deprave myself to where I binge..... all about moderation.....

I didnt do to well on the water though..... :( gotta get back on it....

Hello All!

Thanks for the advice! I am feeling better now. I am not going to let other people get to me. I had kind of a rough weekend food wise and I thought to myself they would just love it if I came back with a gain next week! LOL! But I am not going to let that happen. I am back on the wagon.

Angel your pics were beautiful! You are so pretty! I can't wait to see Italy!

Sandy and Ideal how is it going?

Winnie we have not seen you in awhile!

Hello Ladies!

Its getting kind of quiet around here! How is everyone? I am doing okay. Its been a little stressful with ds having no school now. I don't get a break before work. Somedays they don't even want to let me use the bathroom alone! I definately need to find a day job.

As far as food Its been okay. I think I will have a loss tommorrow. But not going to stress out about it.

I hope you all are doing well! Hope to here from you soon!

When you are done with the laundry over there I have a HUGE pile that is calling your name.....

Worked last night until 1:00am and then had to get up at 5:00....

So nothing is being done today.... I am hoping I can stay awake until 9 so that I dont wake up at 3am.

How is everyone doing????

Hello All!

Just a quick Hi! How is everyone??? Jennifer, Ideal, Winnie, Sandy and Angel?

Its the weekend time for all the busyiness. Of course I am starting it out right. We are going to a Hamburger joint for work tonight. It is none for the mammoth hamburgers it makes. I have also been salivating about the omellette and pancake I have almost every Sat! So next week will mean bootcamp for me!

I lost 2.5 this week at TOPS. No one said anything more about me losing to much. There kick this week was that I should take vitamins. Which they are probably right but I have never been a pill taker! I am ashamed to admit this but I did not even take prenatals. I have a thing about pills.

I also went to the doc today she said my weight could range fro, 105-140. Very Broad. So I am shooting for 125-135. We shall see. I know the 105 is absurd!

I hope you all have had a great week! and have a great weekend!

Beth

Hey everyone!!!!!!!!

Weighed in on Wed and I loss 4 more. Well it was a little more my weight was 183.5. Only 3.5 to go and I get highlights!!!!!! Yeah.

Angel, methinks that I would rather have someone else come here and do my laundry.

Beth, WTG!!!! You are doing great! I understand about the pills. Esp the vit. They hurt me so much when I take them.

I am having a really hard time emontially now. There are many problems here and it has brought my spirits way down. The good thing is that I am not eating as much. Everyone keep me in your prayers.

Hey Everyone!!!!

My computer has gone into a coma I think and I have been having problems getting on... sorry I havent.

It does seem alittle quiet around here. I wonder if this is the summer thing.

Sandy, I hope you are doing OK.... what is going on emotionally over there.... you can always chat with us. Your weight lose is going so great I am real proud of you.

Beth, You sound like you are going in the right direction just keep going.... as for vitamins. I am with you - I am not a big fan of pills and I need them.... so I started taking Flintstones (dont laugh) .... it does help.... also they have liquid vitamins but I am not a great fan of it..... tastes like dirt to me.

Thanks for all the compliments on the pictures.

Anyway, I hope to see yall soon.... I hope to have my computer back.

OK here is the cliff notes on what I am going thru right now.

Last week dh told me that he loves me but doesn't want to be married any more. He says the he was single for too long(we got married when he was 40) and wants no more responsibilites and to come and go as he pleases. Since he has told be that he is nicer to me than he has been in a long time and every now and again he says things to indicate that he has changed his mind but I don't think that his integrety(sp) will let him. So now I am trying to figure out what to do. I can always move back in with my mother but I really don't want to do that and I don't make enough to pay the rent and all the bills here as well. I have made some contacts and if this one contact does as he has promised I will be moved up on the hud list and possibally get to stay where I am at and get help with the rent. Right now I can use all the prayers that are out there.

Hello All!

Sandy I am so sorry you are going through this! I will definately keep you in my prayers. I hope you get everything from him you deserve! Have you thought about Habitat for Humanity. They build houses for people. My sil is a single mom of four. They built her a four bedroom house. Very nice. It might be worth checking into if they have it in your area. She pays based on her income. Another thing she did was take the test and got a job with the post office. She makes good money now.

Well I am getting ready to leave for our family reunion. I have a four hour drive ahead. Hope the dks are good! or at least bearable! I used to torture my mom in the car so I guess I am just getting my due!

Here's to an OP weekend!!

Hello Ladies!
Angel is your computer still down? How is everyone else???

Sandy I am sure things will work out. One way or another we always seem to make it. One thing is for sure I would make sure you get everything you deserve from the divorce! He shouldn't be allowed to leave you high and dry. He knew what the word marriage was all about! Maybe things will still work out if that is what you want. But it sounds like you are not waiting around to see. Which I think shows what a strong women you are. He is going to see this and be sorry in the end! ((Hugs))

Well my weekend was a lot of fun. We went four wheeling. Never had drove one before. It was so much fun. Dh and I are ready to go back for another visit!

Food was exactly what I expected not so great but I am back on track today. You are going to have times like that and I think its how we deal with it that matters.

I guess I should say i had a1.5 lb loss last week. The count is down to 50! Here's to an OP week!

Beth

Where is everyone???? You are welcome Sandy anytime.

Well we got some bad news last night. My sisters dh left her. Well he may be back by now. I really hope not. I could go on and on about him. But bottom line is my family knew this day would come. My sis married this guy she had her own new house, new car, and a good job. With one year she had lost it all and had a baby. He is the biggest habitual liar I have ever known. For my sis and the dk's sake we all pretended to believe him. He is now accusing her of having an affair. He claims the new baby probably is not even his. He threatened to take the dk's and run away. He claims his family knows the mafia. I know my sister is not perfect. But this guy has been fishy from day one!!! It just scares me that he could pull off some of the crap that he says he can. He hardly ever pays attention to these kids. He never gets up with them, doesn't help with there care or around the house. My oldest nephew is autistic and there is a lot of stuff involved with that and my sister does it all. But she also has depression and he will not pay for her meds or for her to go to the doctor. So now he is claiming that he can prove she is crazy and unfit. I am so glad that she did not move to Pennsylvania and she is living in town with my parents. They can help her through this. But I am scared that her dh is going to drain my family dry. I can't believe this is happening. I really hope she leaves him for good I know that is awful to say. But I for one will be glad this jerk is out of our family I am so tired of pretending to like him!!! I am just afraid he will make up with her and lull her into comfort and then 6 months from now take off with the dk's. I know I am sounding paranoid now but this guy is nuts!!! Im telling you he is lucky to have my sis. I would not have put up with him from day one!!!! I would have kicked him to the curve long before now. I am sorry to go on and on about this. I have just been so worried and upset. I can't believe this is happening. I told my dh this am how much I appreciate him.

I hope everyone else is having a better day!

Hey Everyone!!!

Computer is still on the blink..... UGH!!!!!

Beth- I wish your sister all the luck... how unfortunate to go through something like that. It is awful to be involved with men like that.... I hope she stays strong.... there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I hope he is gone for good like you said.... she needs to go ahead and get the courts involved to at least have it on record about him threatening to steal the kids.... also maybe she can go ahead and get some financial support from that creep.

Sandy- 13 years ago my husband came home one friday and told me he was tired of the house, tired of the cars, tired of the cats, tired of the dogs, tired of the kids and tired of me..... and then he left.... we hadnt been fighting or anything.... it came from left field. I found out he had been planning this for 3 months.... he had quit paying the mortgage, cleaned out our savings account and left me with a 2 & 4 year old with no money and I was only working part time and going to school..... within 2 weeks I had to sell my house, put everything into storage, send my kids to my mothers for 2 months, and rent a room out of some guys trailor for 75.00 a week.... I lost EVERYTHING in 2 weeks.... it was devasting.... starting over when I thought I had a safe little world.... I tell you this to let you know that I made it through.... it wasnt always easy - I wont lie to you - but I made it.... I worked on my education in patches, got my self a crappy job, then a better job, then a better job until I knwo have a great job, I bought my own house 5 years ago and have two great kids that I have raised without the child support for over half of that time. My ex-husband calls my house a mini mansion and resents that I now live better than him..... that is the best revenge of all... to live better than him..... you can do it.... I know you can.... you have the strength inside... I will pray for you....

We will be here for you....

BETH - 50#'s YEAH!!!!!!!!!! I wish that was me.... Great Job!

Hello Ladies!
Angel you are a true inspiration. It is amazing what you did. That takes a very strong person. If you can go through all that and come out like you have I know you will lose the weight!!!

Sandy How is it going?

I really hope my sister can be that strong. I guess my bil is back as expected. But he is toying with her emotinally. One day he wants to work it out the next he has called a lawyer. I told my mom if it were me I would legally seperate and try counseling but I would not stay there and let him scare me to death. He actually wants her to leave but wants her to leave the dk's!! (He's insane) He also wants her to get a job. Which is fine but he wants to hire a nanny. I think this is just his slick way of planting someone in the house to get make my sister look bad in a divorce. Also he is trying to get the counselor. I think its another succesful plant on his part. I know I totally sound paranoid. But my dh and have always thought this would happen. I have actually been afraid he might do worse. I guess my sister will never know though if she does not even try to work it out. It will look better for her if she at least goes to counseling. I am trying to talk my parents into hiring a private invesitgator but they don't want to just yet. I personally would want to know his every move. Okay I will not bore you all with this anymore. I just needed to vent a little.

As far as weight loss I am hanging in there. I had a 1.5 loss this week.

I think we are losing some people here ladies! Anyway we could spice things up? It almost seems to early to start a new thread but we always seem to pick up a couple of people.

Hope all is well!

Angel, I just hope that I can be that lucky. You have done a fantasic job. Right now my plan is to just get thru this year and then I am thinking about going back to school that is ifi am unable to get what I am looking for where i work at. My revenge is to losse this weight and heep it off and then end up living better than he does.

Hello All!

Sandy that is not my bil name. I think they are to many men like them out there! Just be strong and you can do it! Before you know it he will be crawling back and you can leave him in your dust!

My dk's woke me up at 6:00am. I am still trying to wake up. Ds has been sick. I just took his temp and its finally down. Not sure if we will go to church though. We have been in this house to long!

I am feeling a little unmotivated in the diet area lately ladies but I am trying to stay OP. It seems like I always get this way towards the end. DH did say yesterday that this was the thinnest he ever thought I had been. Of course I thanked him but let him know I had been a little thinner. I am still not quite where I was when we got married.

Well I better get off and get some things done. I have been unmotivated in the house work area lately also. I think that is a symptom of summer!

Have a great week!

I agree about the spark there Beth. I know that mine has been a direct result of the things that have been going on in my life but hey it is getting better each and every day. The good thing is that I am down to 182 so only 2 lbs til highlights!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to get those. I had to change my vacation plans but I am still taking some time off and getting away for a weekend(cheaper) and I would love to be at 175 by the time that we go so I have to kick into overdrive and buckle down. Gotta get back into the groove. OK when is everyone able to chat online?

Hello Ladies!

I have not been on for awhile and I see no one else has either??? I know weekends our tough for me. We do work around the house or family stuff. Today was dh's b-day and we went to a parade. Dh and the dk's are watching Pokemon the Movie right now and I thought I would sneak away. Darn I'll miss the movie!

Truth is I am trying to talk myself out of eating another piece of b-day cake. We actually ate it yesterday. It was a recipe I got off of here. Its in the recipe section and it is made with diet 7 up. It turns out like a cobbler. Dh said he liked it but I think he was a little disappointed. I think he wanted the cake to be fat! He said where is the icing??? OH well you can't win everytime. I had three pieces of pizza today so I do not need cake. Oh did I mention the DQ blizzard I had also???

Well I hope everyone returns soon! I miss my support system. Sandy I can do online either on the weekend or most mornings or early afternoon. I know my schedule probably does not mesh with yours???

Hope to see you soon!

Okay Ladies! Where is everyone? I hope all is well. I am hanging in here but its getting kind of lonely.

I will be gone for the 4th and then my dk's are staying for two weeks! I probably will actually be busier because I am going to try to get a lot done!

I have my official weigh in at TOPS tommorrow. We didn't meet last week. I will try to check in before I leave Friday. Hope all is well.

Well Sandy I hope you are able to come back soon. What a jerk taking your computer. I may be here all alone. Where are you Angel?

I had a 4.5 lb lost this week. Of course that was for 2 weeks actually. I don't really know how that happened but I am happy.
Congrads on your weight loss Sandy. Hope you like your highlights.

Well my dk's are supposed to be gone for 2 weeks. We are or maybe were leaving them after the holidays at my parents. But of course, ds has strep throat. I feel sorry for the little guy but I just can't help feeling a little bad for myself to. I hope they can still go and pray dd does not get sick while they are there!!!

Well I have to run. I am going to pack as though they are staying for two weeks! Have a Happy Fourth!

Here I am Beth! I am still working on getting a puter. I am hopeful that I will be fortunate really soon. So how is everything going with you? WTG on the 4lbs. I think that you are soon getting to the home stretch. I bet that you are already showing off that sexy new body! Time is short today so I will check in asap.

Sandy glad to see you back. Looks like it is just you and me. I am struggling this week with eating. I have been really stressed about a few things and it is taking its toll. I am determined not to freak if I have a gain tommorrow. Well lets just say if its only a lb or 2. Much more then that and I just hope I don't embarrass myself in front of everyone. LOL!

My dk's are supposed to leave tommorrow and I will be busy doing lots of projects around the house. So I will see you in a couple of days!

Hello All!

Sandy I guess it is just me and you. I pm Angel to see if she was still around. Way to go on the 176! How did you like your highlights? I got mine done and I am not so sure what I think yet?? I am so dark headed that I am just not sure that it looks right!

Well I lost .5 last week so I didn't have to freak out anyway. This weekend was alot of eating though with my bil's here. My mil is doing fine and I think we will get along okay.

I have to run it is time for work soon!
