Good morning! What is it with the rain! Yesterday, we were in a super Wal-Mart in Appleton when a storm hit. The lightning, thunder and rain went on for 45 minutes! Hey, the lights even went out. Wanna see in a Wal-Mart during a blackout!

Today DH and I started the South Beach Diet! I won't be posting my meals here, but at the "On the Beach" thread on the LC board. Too lazy. I'll porbably be posting in that daily too so maybe I can help some newbies with it. The kitchen is stocked up with lots of veggies and low fat meat and cheese, so we're on our way. Tomorrow night and Wednesday DH will have some challenges because he is on the road but I gave him some suggestions. I told him to to and have a omelet with lots of veggies and preferably low fat cheese for breakfast. He can even have some turkey bacon.

Well, have a good day, everyone!

Good Morning Chickadees!

What a wild morning I have had. Got up at 5:30 and did a 2 mile walking video. Then had my oldest son take my youngest young to band camp. They have band from 8 to 3 everyday until school starts *sigh*. Finally left my house (late) and got on the road and my car started shaking like crazy - I mean the whole car was shaking and the steering wheel and everything. Called hubby and he told me not to drive it over the bridge and it stop at our mechanics shop and he would meet me there and bring me to work. Finally got to work around 8:30 and it has been craziness around here too. Oh well, it IS Monday isn't it! ;-)

Leenie, lots of rain huh? We just have lots of heat around here, the heat index is suppose to be 105 here today.

Tippy, I am so glad to hear that you are starting the South Beach Diet today - I will check out your threads on the "on the beach" threads and see what you are doing. I looked at the book on Friday and it looks a lot like Sugar Busters to me which is very popular here in the South. I have a friend that called me screaming Saturday morning bec she has lost 40 lbs on Sugar Busters! She is doing great! She even bought me the book - what a sweetie!

Ok well these silly phone lines won't quit ringing and I can't even think, so I will check back later!

Cathy :wave:

Hi again

It is the long weekend here in Canada.....DH & I are having a quiet weekend at home.

DH & I bought a patio set at WalMart for DS3 & his GF has a glass round table with umbrella & 4 chairs....DS3 & his GF are away until Saturday....they will be surprised when they get home & see it on their deck.

I have been struggling with WW for a long time.....I need daily support.......also more my on Saturday I joined ediets....I have an eating & fitness program. There are menus....3 meals & a snack.....if I don't like a certain food or don't have it in the house....I can substitute another food....I feel more positive about this....I like the daily support....I have emailed the dieticians there 3 or 4 times...they are really helpful......has anyone ever tried ediets?

I have to go & have lunch now.

Tippy....hope you like the South Beach diet.

Cathy....I am glad you made it safely to work today.

Hi Leenie & Lynnie.
