Good morning ladies. Thought I would drop in since it is early. Once I wake up fully it's not worth trying to go back to sleep because it takes me hours. I hope everyone is doing well. I went and bought some fabric yesterday to make a twin comforter to match Kylee's baby crib set. I don't understand why they don't make twin and full comforters to match. After spending that much money to decorate a baby's room why would you want to have to pay to completely re-do it all in a couple years when they move to a big bed? Anyways, here is her crib set. I think it is so cute! Only 13 weeks till she's here!
Everyone have a great OP day!

Good morning, Chickees~~ :coffee:

Well, I'm officially the mother of two "adult" children. My baby turned 21 yesterday. :cry: Since she lives in La La Land and works an odd noon to 9:00 PM shift, I wasn't able to call her and talk to her, so we left a message on her voice mail.

The spider bites are still there...still itchy and achy...but I do believe I'll survive. :)

Went to Stitch n' ***** last night and had a fun time knitting and sipping apple cinnamon herb tea. Dinner was a roast chicken leg and some green beans.

Haven't lost any more but haven't gained either.

Not much else going on...slow day at the lab yesterday...wondering if it will be more of the same today. I'm taking my Alphasmart so I can write if it's really quiet.

Hope all you chicks have a wonderful day on the Beach!

Girls... I've merged your Good Morning threads. :D
I'm just rushing out the door... I'll be back later.
love and hugs to all... :grouphug:

09-15-2004, 09:36 AM
I'm rushing out too! Hersh is doing her afternoon clinic job this morning as I have to interview a prospective rector this afternoon. A female and from Newfoundland! She'd better like dogs in Church, drink Scotch and have a good sense of humour!
Catch you all later!

Okay, so everybody remember the first time I was on Ph1 and had to bust out the Fibercon and we celebrated (finally) "Weezle Made the Big Poop?" This time around, I had to bust out the Immodium. Last night during our movie, my stomach was making HORRID noises and I was like "MAN, I have something awful going on in there or something!" True enough, a little while later I exploded...3 times. I was like GEEEEEZ. Of course, Terry thinks it's funny. Makin' fart noises every time he walked past the bathroom. Thanks for the bloody sympathy, dear.

Up earlier than usual today as I have to pack my bag for volleyball. It's one of those nights where I work until 6:15, and have to be allllll the way across town, on the volleyball court at 6:30.

I absolutely loathe working by myself, and that's what I get to do today, on Wednesday, our slowest of days (besides Saturday.) Hoping we'll be semi-busy and the day will pass quickly.

Well, everyone have a good day. Talk to you all soon!

09-15-2004, 10:23 AM
Hello to all !!
Just poped in for a quick hello. I am off to drop off DD2 at her MDO today then off to the chiro. I did however get the chance to walk yesterday so I finaaly got out there and exercised!! :cheer: Now if I can just do it tomorrow.

Goldie- Boy you are one busy lady!! Have a nice new year!
Jodi- Keep it up the weight will soon fall::):
Jennie- Good luck with the last few weeks. Don't try to do too much!
Mama I want to go to Stitch and ***** just to *****. I don't sew at all but that sounds great!! Girl Fun
Ruth & Ellis Good morning to you all too.

Hope everyone has a great day. Lokks like rain again here. Very bad thunder and lightning lastnight. My 2 year old was not happy. But went to sleep. Stay dry today Barb whereever you are. Talk to you all later,

09-15-2004, 10:34 AM
Jennie - I love the bedding! Lavender is such a pretty color. I wish you lived closer. I have an adorable mobile made of fabric angel bears in lavender and pale green that would look great with your pattern. I used it even though my son's bedroom was done in bright primary colors. He didn't care.

Mamacita - the knitting sounds like fun. I wish I could find a group to crochet with. I'd probably do it more.

Skherb - It does look like more rain, doesn't it? But at least we are not in New Orleans. I've been saying my prayers for those in the path of Ivan.

I got stuck at with a customer yesterday and didn't get to exercise but I did get to walk to her location and back. And it was raining a little on the way back. Even with the Kolaches yesterday I am down another half pound today so I am determined to exercise today. I've got my stuff in the car.

Hope everyone has a great day!

09-15-2004, 11:11 AM
Hello all! Waiting on the cable guy this morning! My poor dear kids have had to live without cable in their rooms for a week and a half now! Poor things! Please don't report me to child services! Oh and the whining especially from my DS. Paleaze! I didn't even have a tv at his age much less cable in my room! Still stayin on track! Oh I wanted something sweet so bad lastnight but had a bottle of water instead! DD b-day cake was givin me the eye but I walked on! Oh temptation is an evil thing. haha Well plenty to keep me busy trying to decorate this house. My DS says I have way to much Home Interior stuff. I told him I am supposed to it's my job! Well I pray we all have a great OP day! Take care everyone!

Good Morning everyone. Hope everyone is having a great day at the beach. It is beautiful weather here again (after the snow last week) and looks like we will be getting an indian summer after all.

Mama - Hope the spide bites get better soon...however, much better that you are able to endure the itch. One of my children had a birthday yesterday as well...along with his mommy. He called me to wish me happy birthday, so I was able to catch up to him yesterday with the same message. He was supposed to be home for supper last night and to watch the hockey game, but didn't quite make it that far. Kids, for pete's sake. Hope your day goes well today.

Ruth - Sending you a 'Hi' on the run. Have a good day.

Jennie - Only 13 weeks to go. It will go so fast, you won't believe it. You have picked a lovely crib set for baby. When you finish the twin set, put the pics up, too. I would love to see.

Jodi - WTG. You keep at it. I'm so glad that it has kicked in. You will soon realize the successes of your change. Congrats and keep on going.

Lauren - You are such a busy lady. Have fun at your celelbrations. I am so glad that you are planning to stay OP while you are away. I always find that it is so much easier to resist temptations when I have considered the impact of foolish eating and have a plan in mind as to how to manage a proper eating program. WTG.

Weezle - I find the same problem - I keep both the metamucil and imodium ready when I am on Phase 1. I just don't know which way it will be, but what I do know is that it will be one extreme or the other - no middle ground there. :lol: Take care.

skherb - Congrats on the exercise. You CAN do it. The best part is that it will work well toward your weight loss goal, too. Keep it up.

Barb - Remember that everyday chores and walking are still good exercise. Just because it wasn't scheduled and done at the gym does not discount the value that it contributes towards your health. I think we don't give ourselves credit for the exercise time spent doing everyday chores. You count the walk as your exercise.

ellis - Know you are on the run, but 'Hi' and have a great day.

Me - It is turning out to be a truly bad week for me. It started last Friday when I went to lunch with a client. Even though I had planned in advance what I would eat, I forgot to consider that the meal I was ordering had a piece of banana bread with it. Yup, I ate every morsel. THEN, on Sunday, went to a tea with DH and planned not to eat any of the dainties that would be served. If they were regular dainties, it wouldn't have been a problem, but they were Norwegian dainties in celelbration of the founding of the particular university that we were at. Unfortunately, Norwegian is also my heritage and I had not had Norwegian dainties for about 30 years. My plate was loaded.... :yikes: To top the off program eating, the staff had a surprise birthday cake for me yesterday. Of course I had one great BIG piece. This morning the scale was up 2 pounds over the scale Monday morning, so it is back to Phase 1 for me. I must get my act together here before it is too late. Today is planned to be a better day. I'm counting on it.

I also bought myself an MP3 player to use for exercising. I didn't get very far with converting my workout files onto it last night, but will finish tonight. I am finding that the discman that I am presently using is so big and bulky, along with skipping badly, that the MP3 will probably do a better job for me.

Hope everyone has a great day. Take care.

09-15-2004, 11:47 AM
Good morning, chickies! I have been alas, not on the beach for a few days and HATE it. I miss eating healthily. I had a friend's birthday this weekend, and it is just a slippery slope. But I am back OP, and didn't gain any weight so I am happy.

Everyone sounds like they are having great days. Happy Rosh Hasanah to all! ;)

09-15-2004, 11:55 AM
Good Morning ladies!

Jennie the lavender is so pretty...I know you are just soooo excited!!

Well last night I went out and bought the Bridget Jone's books...I've been wanting them for a while now...I LOVE the movie and can't wait for the new one to come out! I loooooooooove Colin Firth in the movie. Well I woke up to the sound of rain this was POURING....Can we get a break from it? lol My friends have decided to stay in Mobile, Alabama during the hurricane...but if Ivan becomes a 5 they're getting out of there....I looked on the weather channel this morning...and there's ANOTHER storm on it's way....Jeane.......**Sigh** When will they stop coming??? Well I hope everyone has a great and safe day today!!

09-15-2004, 12:09 PM
Morning! :sunny:

I am going to try to post in the daily today...with only 8 posts so far, I think I can make it...but I bet a bunch of other people will post while I'm working, so please forgive me for not posting to you, okay? :grouphug:

Jennie, the crib set is darling, and I love Kylie's name! :D Can you use the rest of the crib set on a regular bed, like the dust ruffle and such?

Mama, congrats on your baby growing know that the older they get, the better friends you will be, so it's really a reason to rejoice. :hat: Your dinner sounds delicous and I love the name of your knitting group! :D

Ellis, you are keeping our forum neat and tidy as a pin! :D Hope you have a good day. :D

Ruth, good luck to the rector...she'll have a hard time putting one over on you! Are you taking Hersh with you to the interview? Would tell you right away if she's okay with dogs in church! :lol: How's Lucy? She's close to delivery time, right?

Jodi! CONGRATULATIONS on doing five days OP...that is great, and the hardest part is starting, so it's just coasting from here, girl! :D :cheer: :bravo:

Lauren, have a wonderful Rosh Hashanah and a safe and happy couple of weeks!

Weezle...looking forward to celebrating, "Weezle is stopped up!" :lol: You make me laugh girl...and I can totally sympathize. My digestive system is not happy with me this week. Wonder if it has anything to do with the couple salads with lots of fresh veggies (including broc. and cauliflower) I've had lately? :chin: Hope your day passes quickly!

SKHerb, congrats on exercising! :cheer:

Barb, good luck on exercising today and congrats on the loss! :cheer:

Bamiegirl, congrats on denying temptation. YGG! :hat:


I'm crazy-busy at work...lots and lots and lots to do! Lots of running around as well back and forth across campus for different meeting and events.

I'm plateauing around 253.5 and 254.5, but I'm trying hard not to get down about it. I did a great weightlifting workout on Monday and can hardly legs are so sore! But it was the hard week and next two will be much easier as my legs heal. It was definitely worth it! I can already see increases of at least 20 pounds in what I'm able to lift to failure. Very cool! :strong: Decided to get a dumbbell for one of my charms. Have to get two for 60 lbs and 65 lbs. I'll get them put on bracelet will be more than half full! ;)

Started a walking program at work today with pedometers. Did it last year and it was really fun, so signed up again. They take your BP and do fat percentage, etc. My BP was down a bit, which is great, and my body fat is now 39% :cheer: Just barely into the "Very High" category. It was 42% in early August, so the weightlifting must be helping! My BMI is 35.5, which is also lower. Good stuff!

Hope everyone has a great day! :D

09-15-2004, 12:41 PM
Finally made it to the site before o-dark-thirty. You are all still up and going.

Jenne-cute baby stuff. Makes me want to snuggle one. :o

mama-does having a child that's officially adult make them one? I have 3 official adults and they certainly don't act like one......must have got it from their dad :D

Ellis-stick around awhile and fill us in. How are YOU doing? Been thinking about you. :^:

Ruth-good luck rector-searching.

Justjodi-ahhhhh isn't it a great feeling???? I hear you 100% :)

Goldie-have fun in Kansas City. Sounds like you'll be way busy.

Weezle-have fun in volleyball.....spike one for all of us.

skherb-way to walk! Do it tomorrow too, (I'm giving myself this peptalk too) You'll feel better.

Barb-what's a kolaches? Sounds yummy.

Bammiegurl-well I haven't call Child Protective services yet, but ........ :lol:

Sweetooth-What kind of MP3 player did you get? I want one so bad. I use a disc player and it really is hard to run with. I want a mini ipod........drool....

kvixen-if you didn't gain weight while you wandered from the beach GOOD FOR YOU!!!! I wish I had been so lucky.

HistoryChick-you're welcome to come on over to Idaho, no storms brewing here.....just freezing cold nights. :(

Beachgirl- WTG on the weightlifting! That's such a boring thing for me, I have a hard time making myself do it. I'd rather run. What kind of charm bracelet is it? A dumbell, very cute!

Well, as for me, it's cold here. Boo hoo. I'm having to cover my tomatoes every night. Last night I canned tomatoes, applesauce and applejuice. Went to bed tired and finally got the kitchen cleaned up and the stuff put away. What a mess, but I love to can.

Sticking with the program on phase 1. Decided I had to get the sugar toxins out of my system so I could quit cheating. Never underestimate the power of Phase 1!!!!!

Hope you all have a great day! Be safe and have fun.

09-15-2004, 12:49 PM
Thanks everyone for your well wishes!!! :) You all are the best! :)

:) Lauren

09-15-2004, 12:59 PM
Well, ladies, I've been off plan for two weeks now. Not feeling good about it, but at least I'm still exercising. I can not seem to get the motivation to get back into it. :(

It started with PMS (probably compounded by the changing seasons) and now I'm just down-right depressed. I had to put my sweet kitty to sleep this weekend, and although I KNOW I made the right decision for her, I am still guilt-ridden. Her illness was very unexpected and it was the first time I've had to make such a was more traumatic for me than I thought it would be. Then we found out that DH's grandmother has been diagnosed with throat and lung cancer, my aunt has skin cancer (the highly lethal melanoma kind), and a young man that DH grew up with was killed in an auto accident (he was 25).

I'm trying to control my emotional eating, but I'm not having much success (especially with all the Halloween candy that has suddenly appeared). I think my plan is to give myself a few more days, trying to get on Phase 1, and if I can't do it on my own, I'm gonna have to seek out some professional help. Today I'm going to weigh myself at the gym and maybe that will help me snap out of it. I weighed myself last week and found I was down a pound and a half, which seems to have given some stupid part of my brain the idea that it's okay to be off plan right now. But it's not worth it to sacrifice all the hard work b/c I'm feeling blue.

Hope everyone else is having a successful, OP week!

09-15-2004, 01:10 PM
:grouphug: Hugs to you LaurieX and I will keep you and all your peeps in my prayers! You may be on the right track as far as getting some help with this as is a lot to handle!

09-15-2004, 01:11 PM
Barb-what's a kolaches? Sounds yummy.

Sausage kolaches are soft rolls with a small piece of sausage or sausage and cheese inside. They also had fruit kolaches where fruit is on the top of the soft roll. Very much OFF plan but so yummy.

09-15-2004, 01:15 PM
I wonder if they are like what I call pigs in a blanket where you use like a cresent roll with a lil sausage link wrapped up in it. Either way it all sounds yummy and OFF P! tee-hee

Hello chickies. I am sitting here in the quiet. I have 3 wee ones today which are all napping. The quiet feels nice. So I colored my hair, did my eyebrows did a quick facial mask got dressed and did my hair and make up. Wow it has been awhile since I have had time to do anything like that. So now I am sitting here with time for a change to post and catch up on the other threads.

Mama- glad to hear that the bites are feeling better. My dd (youngest) had her birthday yesterday as well. She is 11 now. I am not sure how my kids got to be so grown up. :lol:

Ellis- Sending you a big hug. Miss you around here, hope you will be posting more soon. Take care.

Ruth- good luck with the interview. I sure she will love dogs.

Justjodi- glad to see you are back on track and feeling fine....please come over here and give me a swift kick in the ..... and get me going again.

weezke- sorry to hear about the troubles. Hope you are feeling better. Have fun at volleyball.

sweetthooth-HAPPY BIRTHDAY :hb: :gift: :coach: now get your butt back on track.

Jennie- the lavender is beautiful it is a beautiful set. What a lucky little baby she will be.

Goldiefun-Happy Rosh Hashana , have a fun time tonight.

skherb- good for you exercising yesterday.

Barb- down another 1/2 pound good for you girl. Keep up the good work.

Bamiegirl- I think I will report you. No cable for a week and half...what kinda mother are you..... :rofl:

kvixen- glad that the scale is your friend.

beachgal- good for you lifting weights you will get great results. Keep up the good work.

Well I think I managed to get everyone. If I forgot someone please forgive me. I am going to try to be more faithful to posting and then maybe I can get a good @$$ kicking to get myself back on track. Check in again later.

09-15-2004, 01:23 PM
Hello ladies.

Crazy day as usual. Not much time to say hellos, but I did get to read everybody's post...only took me an hour with interruptions! :) :dizzy:

I'm up to my ears today in Star Wars stuff. I have one consignor that I've been selling for since I opened. She's 80+ years old and lives with her husband quietly. Her son died in 2001 in a car crash. He was a graphics designer who lived alone. Never married, and spent his time collecting and accumulating toys of all kinds. He had an Atari, original Nintendo, Sega, and Super Nintendo all in original boxes, played with maybe once. He bought things to have them. This week's lot included original Star Wars posters and toys, posters from when Kiss was a garage band, and expensive books.

Anyway, when I showed up at her house the other day for a pickup she told me she had a few things she didn't know if I could sell or not. She opened a large tote to reveal 5 original 1960's Tonka construction toys. For those of you not familiar, this is big bucks. They were played with, but her son was obviously a collector from birth as they look great! I cleaned them up yesterday and they look just peachy.

Bry called her yesterday to ask if she had a piece that was missing from a dozer. He also told her the combined estimated value of the tote was over $1000. She was so funny! She got all excited and confused, couldn't understand why they were worth so much used! Anyway, she called back and said her husband couldn't find the piece. Quoted "I made him look under the couch and everything!" :lol: It was absolutely adorable.

Speaking of adorable, the sing-song for 911 at the nursing home went well. My MIL had to make a lady sit back down in her wheelchair as she wanted to get up and dance to America, the Beautiful. :) It felt great.

Had a multi-chamber mixer on Monday. Not totally on plan, and I did do dessert, but it's TOM and I don't feel that bad about the food yet.....I did get out last night and get some serious walking in. Every time I set my alarm for the AM work-out, I wake up and remember that I have plans for work for that early AM. GRR! Anyway, going to try to get in a workout video, maybe Paula Abduhl, tomorrow morning if it kills me! :p

My treadmill is dead......... :mad: :?: :( :mad:

Have a lovely day ladies!

09-15-2004, 02:21 PM
Afternoon All,

Can't say I've actually gotten a lot done today but I finally had a morning at my desk. DH took the kids to school today so I've had the house to myself all morning. Didn't do too great with eating yesterday. We had Back-to-School night and they had these fabulous homemade chocolate cookies so I had just one. But since I had a cookie, might as well have a few chocolates and if I'm having chocolate, why not a few chips and ... Fortunately the damage wasn't too bad (no junk food in the house :lol: ) and back to OP today. I've decided I can't do any more eggs for a few days so I've been having steel cut organic oatmeal for breakfast instead - guess I'm officially on Phase 2.

What I really need to do is get my butt back to the gym. There has been a real whirlwind of "start of school" stuff and it has made it hard to get my regular routine going again but that is no excuse!

Great to see everyone's posts - usually by the time I've read them all I'm out of time to post. I should have had lunch an hour ago so I'm off to see what looks yummy in my kitchen and go start the afternoon whirlwind. DD has started having to change/shower at gym in school and has a sudden interest in training bras and a particular style of underwear. She's flat as a board (she'll be 11 in a few weeks) but that has nothing to do with anything of course :lol: . I'll let you know how I survive the jungle of pre-teen underwear!

09-15-2004, 02:41 PM
I hope everyone is having a great day...I'm at day 3 of phase 1 and feel REALLY good!Since I'm at work, I have to make it short, but I just wanted to stop in and say hi to everyone!

09-15-2004, 04:17 PM
I usually get up to my computer after all my "bed and breakfast" prep is done, but I read all of your wonderful posts. I send my good will and hugs to all the chicks. You are such a great group of supportive women. I feel so lucky to share in the closeness of everyone from all over the world. ;)

I restarted on Phase I Monday and am down 3 and 1/2 lbs. I have got to stay OP and quit messing around with the plan! :devil: Weekends are hard because of all the wonderful leftovers. That wouldn't be so bad, except they are triggers for all of the "whites" in the house. (Whine whine) :dizzy:

Laurie--I've had to put down a few kitties over the years because of illness. It is very hard. That, with all the illness in your friends and family compounds the problem. Your thought about seeking professional help is a commendable one. I've done it and it does help. However, just seeing that you have options is excellent.

Take care.

09-15-2004, 05:52 PM
Its been a while since I posted in the daily. You ladies fly so fast!! I am sure I will miss some people in my response, I apologize in advance!!

Jennie - Adorable bedding. 13 weeks will fly by!

Mamacita - holy bug bites!! Itching is no fun.

Jodi - Come on board with us, you can lose. :hug:

Lauren - Safe travels and enjoy the holidays.

weezle - good lord you bathroom queen!! Gonna make sure I am not eating what you are eating!! hope you are feeling better...

skherb - my 20mo twins are not scared of thunder yet, :crossed: we never face that. Hope tonight is a quiet night.

Barb - I must tell you, I watch your sig line for inspiration. You are so dedicated and take adventures in cooking, and you stay on track. I just find it inspirational and wanted you to know it. :yes:

sweettooth - an MP3? How cool for you!!

Jess - onederland is so close, you will be there before you know it!!

Laurie - the work walking group is such a great thing, how exciting. And a big ole :bravo: on the lower BP and BMI

LaurieX - From one emotional eater to another, you just have to decide to stop. And I started SBD in January and am just NOW starting P1 over again. You have to really want it and that takes time. You will get back on track, I just know it.

little chick - I am green with envy at your time for you. How wonderful!!

Adia - It must be wild working with people who are letting go of collections that were such a big part of their lives. Amazing.

Kim - preteen underwear? Heaven help you. :lol:

And about me? Not much to report really. Spending all my free time getting ready to launch my company. Its a gourmet, handmade nuts and chocolate company. The website should go live shortly and I have a few weddings and showers booked. Going to try a couple local holiday art fairs to help spread name recognition. Its exhausting but hopefully will be worth it. Otherwise, my signature line says it all...hopefully P1 will kick me back into gear and I will not have lost much ground.

Have wonderful evenings everyone!!

09-15-2004, 08:26 PM
Good morning!
Oh, ****... NOT morning!

Jennie, I LOVE the crib set you've chosen!

Mamacita, Happy Birthday to your baby! I wonder when they stop being "babies"? My eight year old still looks like a baby to me (sort of), and I'm affronted when people tell me he's growing. :D

Ruth, a Newfie! I may come out and join you some Sunday!!

Jodi, you don't have to apologise for whinging... we all do it at some time! I'm so glad you're doing well, girl!! :hat:

Lauren, enjoy your holidays!

Weezle, we know more about your bowels than anything else about you. :lol3:

Skherb, congratulations on getting a walk in!! :hat: I hope the rain has stopped.

Barb, I hope you got out there and exercised today! :drill:

Bamiegirl, I LOVE sausage rolls! :love: Mom makes the most fantastic pastry...

Peggy, I'm with you, girl. I am SO with you. Yesterday I made (early in the day) crepes for dinner. I ended up eating all eleven of them (with cream cheese and smoked oyster filling), and having to make something else for dinner. :rollpin:
Do you think we can possibly pull ourselves together for tomorrow? :rolleyes:

Kvixen, I'm glad you're back on track! Keep it up!!

Jess, I love Bridget Jones, too! I can't even imagine what's going to happen in the new movie! :?:

Laurie, don't get discouraged... :grouphug: ... you're building muscle!! It's heavy stuff, darlin'!

RNMom, you're a sweetheart. :) And you haven't even got your bracelet yet! :lol3: (what happened to those things, anyhow!)
Wow, you're in a canning frenzy! :hat: I used to love doing that! I did a ton of it for several years, but then became incredibly lazy. :( I was just having some Pear-Lemon Marmalade this afternoon (no, it's not OP), and thinking it would be nice to make some. It's a small jar, and it cost 12 bucks! :yikes: It might really impress people at Christmas time. :D I'm determined to make my gifts this year...

Oh, LaurieX, I am so very sorry... :cry: What a load of burdens you're bearing right now. You're very wise to get some help.
Why don't you just do Phase II for now? Even Phase III would be healthy, and it would be easier for you at this time.
My DH and I will be saying lots of prayers for you and your family... love and hugs... :grouphug:

Little Chick, as usual you sound beautiful and completely organized. :) I want to be YOU!! :love:

Sarah, I'm so glad the singing went well! I'll bet they loved you! :)

Kim... pre-teen underwear. shudder. You WILL get over it. :lol: My daughter now looks through my underwear drawer when she's short. :rolleyes:

Hi, Yaya! :wave: Glad you're doing well!!

Essie, congratulations on the weight loss! :hat:

Jen, your company sounds cool! :smoking: I hope it's a great success!

Me? I made the mistake of joining the South Beach Online site the other day. :rolleyes: Realized it was a waste of time, and I've just cancelled it. I can't believe how little you get there! Everything you need is RIGHT HERE! (and it's free!) :D Anyhow, I thought it might give me a boost, but it didn't. :(

Otherwise, I am doing very well. My Mother is driving me RIGHT UP THE WALL, but I'm starting to get a grip on myself.
Ruth, if you take her out, remember... I can't afford to pay you. :lol3:
I was thinking how nice it would have been if I could have watched the hockey game last night with Dad.

Right now I am doing something TOTALLY weird and unlike me. I'm filling out contest entries online. Between yesterday and today, I've filled out about 100. I figure I'm good to win at least an even dozen. :rofl: If I win something I don't like (a spa for two in the mountains?), I'll toss it, and you can all scramble.

Ellis it is so good to see you here and in good spirits. Don't be tossing that spa thing to anyone but me. That is my dream. And thanks for the compliment. Love ya girl.

Weezle...looking forward to celebrating, "Weezle is stopped up!" :lol: You make me laugh girl...and I can totally sympathize. My digestive system is not happy with me this week. Wonder if it has anything to do with the couple salads with lots of fresh veggies (including broc. and cauliflower) I've had lately? :chin: Hope your day passes quickly!

Hahaha passes quickly. :lol:

Yeah, umm.....could be that all I've eaten for 2 days is salad and a whole bag of frozen broccoli/cauliflower maybe? Had a salad tonight, but laying off the veggies. May have a Boca Italian Sausage instead. No problems today....think I got everything out of my system last night.

Incidentally, I've lost 4 lbs since Monday. WOO HOO for Phase 1 again! I'm still not posting my REAL current weight, as I am still ashamed for going hog (haha literally) wild last weekend. Tempted to drink beer tonight, but drinking water and tea and staying in with Terry. Good weezle.

Morning! :sunny:
Jennie, the crib set is darling, and I love Kylie's name! :D Can you use the rest of the crib set on a regular bed, like the dust ruffle and such?

Unfortunately no. The crib will convert into a toddler bed and it will still fit for that, but it won't fit for the twin.
