Good Morning :) Hope everyone slept well last night and has a great weekend! We have some nice weather here, cool, sunny & a little crisp. I can open the windows just a little but enough to get some fresh air in. I got on the scale this morning and am down another 2 lbs! YAY ME!! I hope I can continue to loose 1 to 2 lbs a week. My TOM hasn't started yet, I normally get it anywhere from the 13th -18th of the month, I am tied and I know I'm not pregnant, I'm just guessing from the weight loss and change in eating habits is changing my whole body...OR because we had a short month last month maybe it's just pushing it back a few days on me.

Well we are going to Michael's today after my husband gets home from work, the kids are going to build a buddy there and we'll get some things for decorating (which is something I love to do) and then we are going to barbeque some ribs on the grill for supper tonight. I'll be checking in threwout the weekend. I hope everyone has a great one :)

OK TOM is on its way *whew* I was wondering where it was LOL! Where are yall?

03-19-2005, 03:26 PM
Not a very good day for me. I'm frustrated and extremely crabby. My h and I, I feel like we are circling each other like a couple of boxers in the ring. I know this is a cop out, but I don't think I can quit right now. If not now, then when, I know. But I don't like the way I am feeling right now. Anyway, i'll bbl

Sorry to hear things are rough with you and Dh, Tabitha. Hopefully they will get better soon.

Gotta go find some ideas for Kayla's upcoming birthday. Talk to you guys later.

Thanks again, Lisa

Happy weekend everyone! I am loving the warm weather we're getting here today! Spring is a comin' in! LOL

Not much going on in my weight loss world...I actually gained 1 or 2 lbs this week, but TOM is due today (not here yet though - I often run 2-3 days late), so I know that's why. Since it's not here and I feel good, I think I'll go for a treadmill walk later on. :D Get my lazy butt in gear.

Hope everyone's enjoying the weekend!!

Lisa, this thread will be the same tomorrow, just to let you know. I think we usually have a thread for every day of the week, and one for Saturday and Sunday together. I only mention it, because that confused me. Anyway, I'm off to finish the housework I started last night. Almost got it under control again! WooHoo! I may post pictures with my webcam tomorrow so that you guys can see all the work I've done. NO before pics though, nope, just not gonna post messiness for ya! LOL, alright, be back later. Take care.

good evening all. Welcome to all the newbies here. These women are a great support on weight loss and mom stuff.
I am going to try to be on here a little more often. It sounds like everyone is doing great with their exercise. Keep it up. I now have the 2 mile WATP tape, and it really is quite the workout. Anyway, have a great eveing.

03-20-2005, 12:29 PM
Okay there seems to be a problem with the MSN site. I can't post my points for the day yet. Oh well I'll keep trying! :D

03-20-2005, 01:40 PM
I posted my points for Friday and Saturday today. As well as my weigh in picture! No loss, but no gain either. Had TOM to deal with this week, and I was up like on Tuesday or Wednesday. So I am back to where I was last Sunday. Got a lot of housework done this week, and my goal will be reached by the time I go to bed. I haven't been exercising the way I'd like to this week, and I really need to get my butt in gear. BBL, have a great Sunday everyone.

Howdy all, flyby for me, just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing. It's rainy here and just an all around yucky day, I am thinking of getting a nice nap in just a few..TOM of here and I'm just tired.

Have a great day all
