Good Morning Ladies!!

Hope you are having a good morning!! It's quiet here this morning, hope to see you around the boards today.

Good morning all. My little plateau went away finally, and I lost the random 1.5 pounds I gained plus an extra 2 in the past few days so I made my St. Patrick's Day goal already. It takes so little to make me happy. :lol: I was really frustrated when the scale stopped moving and I gained back 1.5 pounds even though I hadn't changed anything so I took my measurements again only 3 weeks from when I started dieting. I lost 3" in my waist in 3 weeks :D

My daughter is still sick, unfortunately. I spent 4 days at home not being able to do a thing, and yesterday, I finally got her to go to school. Halfway though the day, they called me to pick her up. Now she is crying over everything- not being able to get her shoes on, not being able to get her turtleneck off, etc. I'll be so glad when she is over this!

I'm glad people seem to be doing a bit better on here.

Michelle- my pets used to plot against me. I had a cat who would get on top of my refrigerator and knock down the loaf of bread I kept up there so my dog could eat it. My dog would also run to the table and grab food off of my plate in the two seconds I would walk from the dining room table to get something from the kitchen. I swear he was trying to give me an ulcer :lol:

Tabitha- I'm glad you have a plan worked out. Nobody is going to think poorly of you. We've all gone through tough financial times and had to choose between making a house payment and eating. My ex-husband tried to force me into filing for bankruptcy by not paying any portion of the bills he was supposed to pay according to the divorce decree. It will get better so hang in there!

Sorry I'm not getting personal with everyone, but it's time for me to start working out (just in case my kid gets sick and I don't have time again later *sigh* )

Don't have time for much else but to post this to you all this morning. Have a great day!!!

Morning all. I just got back from the gym. I am real tired today. TOM hit and Patrick didn't sleep well and therefore, I didn't either. I could use a good nap!

Jill, that was hillarious. thanks I needed something funny this morning.

Hope everyone is doing well. We really have been slow here.

03-10-2005, 12:37 PM
ROTFLMAO, Jill that was so funny! Thanks. I had to send that one to my friends, so the joy has been spread. Gotta go tackle mount laundry, now, be back later.

Afternoon Beautiful women!

Busy cleaning, changed all the sheets, cleaned the bathroom (I do that everyday anyhow heck I clean the whole house everyday!) and doing wash yet again, I do a huge load everyday I swear the kids hide clothes and make the mound of clothes bigger everyday! I made a chocolate cake last night with diet cherry coke and added some almond extract in it, then mixed s/f chocolate pudding in some lite cool whip and OMG the kids tore into it! It was absolutely fantastic! I read an article last week sometime that most people don't get enough fiber into their diets even when they aren't dieting and that taking a fiber supplement is good to do, plus it makes you feel fuller...well I have been taking 2 tablets 1/2 hour before each meal since Sunday and it does make a difference, I really feel if I ever go to the bathroom ( you figure I would have by now right? but no not me LOL) but if I ever go maybe I'll loose 5 lbs! LOL!

Tabitha~I am thinking of you and hope that everything goes well for you and that you can get that paid ASAP without any hassle before then. Walking home from work will definately get some exercise in, why not get a pedometer and count your steps and see how many calories you burned too. I told my DH I want one to wear around the house all day and track my calories and everything. If you lived close to me I'd help you with your kids, I know its hard having to find someone to mind the kids while the parents are at work.

Chelle~YAY on the weight loss!! WTG! I hope your daughter is back to normal very soon!

Melissa~Hey girl, hope you get that nap in, have a cup of peppermint tea, it always relaxes me and it takes care of my sweet tooth...I have a huge stock pile of that ready for when TOM is here.

Michelle~Hope your having a good day and little Taylors eye is looking better.

Penny~Stop running, we can't catch up to ya ;)

Everyone have a wonderful day, sorry for missing some of yall but Tori is needing me right now. *Big Hugs*

03-10-2005, 03:03 PM
ok, I was off by an average of 56 miles I got an 80. I did better than I thought I would.

03-10-2005, 07:57 PM
ok, it's getting weird around here. what ever happened to a 7 page day?? I mean we are on page one here......HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!! Where is everyone.......?????????????????

Ok, I'm eating horribly today. TOM is here. I hate it becuase right now I am feeling like a failure with this weight loss. Grrr. I was doing so well with eating for such a long time and now I feel like I've fallin off the wagon. I hope i'll do better when TOM is gone!

Today has been absolutely nuts. I sent my daughter to school again this morning, and my husband took my car to work because it was snowing. Anyway, I got a call from the school to pick up Sage again today so my hubby had to leave work to get her since I don't know how to drive his car. She had a 102 fever! It turns out the poor thing has a sinus infection, and here I thought she just had a cold.
