OH! Be Still my heart! BE Still my heart! SHARONNNNNNNNNN!!!!! So good to see you post!!!!! You have been soooooooo missed! Oh my gosh! Thank you - Thank you - Thank you! Now I do hope that you don't dissappear again for so long of time ... I know we keep in touch via email, but ... it's nice to have you post here too! You definately have been busy busy busy ... you do put me to shame - here I am enjoying my retirement in the woods .... sometimes I think I would like to be working still (enjoyed the attmosphere of the office and being with the public) but then when I get up on a snow filled morning, lounging in my PJ's in front of a nice cozy fireplace - the thought vanishes real fast! I owe you a very long email I know and I PROMISE that I will send you one this week! I promise!

Wow - that Niko is a real charmer! What a doll. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Good job on staying OP also ... I'm still stuggling to get back OP 100% ... I always seem to "slip" a little each day .. today is a new day, let's see what happens today.

Loon - Shaun - Rita:
Looking for you guys - where are you? Come on in and post! Don't dissappear on us.

How's is going? How is your granddaughter doing? Hope all is ok with her. I know you are taking care of them this week but hope we hear from you soon.

It's very very cold here ... but, suppose to have a "warming up" come Wednesday ... going to get in the double digits but then is suppose to get colder again. Brrrrrrrrrrr ... I like the snow but don't like the below freezing cold!

Well, I hope to come in here later and see some posts from you all. Have a good OP day!

Love, CJ

Hello - where is everyone? I am only here for a minute just to say hello.

No apology is necessary about the welcome ... I only posted my quote from the previous thread in case you didn't see it and I didn't want you to think I ignored you. I'm glad you posted and hope to hear more from you!

I've been in a bit of a funk these last couple days .. cabin fever maybe? It's been well below zero for days and we've gotten more snow and hubby has been gone a lot doing snow plowing and usually I love being alone sometimes but maybe since my car isn't running and I can't go somewhere if I wanted to that this is the reason? Don't know but we did go to the casino tonite for a while ... we won some not a lot ... but had fun and was nice getting out. Sometimes I just get in funk and don't know why. Anyways, feeling better now ...

You know me when I get into my funks ... just want you to know that I haven't forgotten that I owe you a very long email. It's coming!

Well ... hope to hear from everyone soon! Shaun, Loon, Slyvia, Peggy ... where are you guys?

Love, CJ

I'm Christina. I'm a 30 year old single college student on WW. I'm majoring in Elementary Education and plan on being a first grade teacher. I have lost 15 pounds so far and about 8 pounds way from my 10% goal. I drink between 120-160 oz of water a day and just started a fitness class at school to give a big boost to my weight loss.
I like to meet people on the same weight loss journey. I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

Hello Ladies! :wave:

I'm just popping in for a quick hello. My parents are out of town and I'm house and niece sitting again. Their internet service is cr*ppy so I'll make this short. I've been hanging in there but running around after two toddlers is a workout. I find myself just "grabbing" whatever to eat. I do need to get my hiney in gear because I'll be going to Mexico Feb. 4. I can't wait.

CJ- Hey chickie! I see you were as excited to hear from Sharon as I was! I almost fell off the chair when I saw her post. :lol: Sounds like it's cold in your neck of the woods...I guess I shouldn't complain about it being 58 and sunny.

Peggy- How is your grandaughter doing? I hope she is feeling better. Have fun with your grandkids.

Christina- Welcome to the group.

Rita- Thank you for your kind words regarding my son. And Welcome to the group!

I'll try to post later when I get home and have a faster and more relliable connection).

Hugs to you all!
