Good morning! The robin was singing away by 4:30 this morning. Silly bird but always cheerful!
Gail comes this morning and I still haven't done my tidying. I've got winter clothes all sorted and ready to store but it's really messy so I need to get my thumb out.
I'm hoping to get some gardening done this morning if it doesn't rain and will be at the hospital for most of the afternoon.
What's happening with you? :cofdate;

Morning Ruth. I'm up. Well sort of. I couldn't sleep so I decided to get out of bed. I'm already planning a nap for after physical therapy.
Lydia, who needs :coffee:

I had a pretty excellent diet day yesterday - after the kielbasa on Sat. :lol: No call from the shy guy yet. Except I'm not sure when the waitress will give him the card. So this is going to drive me nuts. :dizzy: nuttier? The nuttiest? :lol: I watched the English Patient yesterday :love: I love that movie. Cause you know that all us single gals think all you married gals live life like a romantic movie. Sometimes I have to remind myself what marriage was really like for me. :lol:
This weekend should be fun. DS and I are going to the Great Lakes Indian Pow Wow downtown and one of my favorite jewelry gals will there! Can't wait. Then one of my teachers is graduating so we will have to run out to her party and then my friend the gourmet - her daughter is done with college - so she is having a graduation party. You know what that means? The kissy but don't cally fireman may be there - also bad Bob will be there. So either way it should be very interesting. I really hope the fireman will be there so I can painstakingly ignore him. :lol: I also want to take DS to see Madagascar.
I'm afraid to say this but my back is feeling terrific. I plan to exercise this evening.
Ruth - Poor Harry! He must have been in terrible pain. Hugs to you.
angelshine - WHAT DID YOU GET? I have new car fever but that stinky Dave Ramsey and his budget won't let me get one until my truck is paid off. :lol:
mama - Get some coffee girl! :lol:
wendy - Morning sunshine! :lol:
Ellis - I tried to upload a picture of me and DS yesterday but it was too big. I'm going to have to work on that.
I'm sure when I post this there will be 10 more posts - so morning everyone!

I got a brand new mazda3...:) and i am gonna ow everyone and their second cousin money it feels like!! but I just basically will have to live at work...ahhhh!
It will be worth it...I was driving an 85 Toyota :)
06-06-2005, 10:44 AM
Amy, glad to hear you had an excellent day yesterday.
Angel, lets hear more about the new car. I hope the payments aren't too bad.
I've had 2 cups of coffee. The second one was half decaf. My physical therapist upped my weights. Thought he could trick me but they're color coded. Tomorrow is not looking like a good day at our house. We bought dd one of those big cedar playsets. Okay, okay, I bought it for me too. I was told the trucking company would be able to bring it in a mid size truck. WRONG! All they have is 18 wheelers. We live 1/4 mile up a single lane gravel road. Unless the guy is good enough to turn that baby around in an area about 4 car lenghts in each direction, I don't see it coming up the drive. Sheesh!
Thinks happy swing set thoughts for me because dd is the drama queen of South Carolina if not of the world.

Morning ladies --
back to work
Was JUST almost at 195 this AM, but the darn scale sneezed, lol. Oh well, will just have to be another OP day! I hope week 2 of Phase 1 goes better :)
Have a good day. Off to the grindstone. Ruth, hope Harry is feeling better!!!!
06-06-2005, 11:13 AM
Morning chicks..... thank goodness last week is over. I was extremly busy with end of the year dance stuff. Though I not sure that this week will be any easier. I just had two of my part time children start back today. The little guy was just a baby when he left he is now just over two, he doesn't talk just screams and if you tell him no then he throws himself on the floor wacks his head and screams louder. :yikes: So I should be completly insane by tommorow at 4:00. Thank goodness they are only here two days a week.
I should be back more regularly now that things have started to slow down.
Take care chicks.
Ruth- have not caught up on all the posts so not sure what happened to darling Harry. But I hope all is well.
Mamadragon- hope you got your :coffee2: have fun with the new swing set.
Ellis- hugs right back at ya.
angelshine- congrats on the new car. Lucky chick.
anchor weight- nothing better than that feeling terrific feeling. Hope you get to ignore that firefighter guy. ;)
jenne- morning chick. Hope you have an OP day.
Enjoy the day ladies.

Well I'm up here in the sticks passed Scranton with my DGF.My DF has lots of medical problems...lost an incredible amount of weight as a result but is not eating healthy (if at all).. We stopped at the grocery store and fresh food market , and got her stocked up with all healthy whole foods... She may join us one day !! We took the Furbabies out for a 2 mile walk this morning and are settling in for some marathon Scrabble later!!! ( We are "ScrabbleButts! )
Ruthie - Glad Harry is coming along
Angelshine - Congrats on the new car... Ah nuthin like that new car smell! :cp:
Jenne1017 - Oh that is just too funnie! Good to see you have a healthy relationship with your scale and laugh when it sneezes.
mamadragon- Too funnie about the drama queen daughter - an actress in the making I bet... :lol:
anchor aweigh - still keeping my fingers crossedfor you and shyguy ;)
And a Big hello to everyone else!!
Have a Great Day !!!

Good morning ladies!!! My weekend wasn't too bad. My boss wasn't there to bug me! Her boss was there thought & she's 81/2 months pregnant. So I was doing stuff for her....she has no business being on a ladder! I also got a shoplifter on Sunday - he had $1002.96 worth of stuff on him! So I was the favorite this weekend! Today I plan on scrapbooking & going to the new scrapbook store (I'm excited!) but only after I workout - that way I have to!
Ruthie - I'm glad things are going better for you - have fun packing up your winter stuff
Ellis - I'll see you in here later!
Mamadragon - enjoy your coffee!
Angel - enjoy the new car! I remember my first car buy - it's scary, but in 6 days I'll make the LAST payment - it goes by fast! I bought a Saturn fully loaded & the payment were $300/month...so I'm sure your payment will be fine. Did you check your insurance yet....that will probably go up some.
Anchor - I'm sure the shy guy will call....it may take him some time - he is shy you know!! And besides, if he nevers calls - don't waste the pretty on his sorry butt, there's someone else out there....actually there's usually more than one - so enjoy it!!
Jenn - I've been doing my crunches & I feel it in my stomach - thanks for the idea. I bet anything that scale will jump to down to 195 tomorrow!!
Little chick - enjoy the little ones....I'll cross my fingers for you!!
Schatzi - enjoy the sticks! I hope your friend starts to take care of herself soon!
Have a great day!!!!

My day started pretty well, had my 2 egg omelet etc, etc. same old thing...still not really tired of it yet.
I'm at work, thought I'd check in and see how everyone's day is. It's kind of slow in the office today.
The weekend went fine, Had to let off some steam and got a little looped with my best friend Friday night. We went to the country and sat outside til 2 am. The next day I was fine, only worried about the scales since a lot of people say drinking halts the weight loss. But it seemed fine. Since I started 2 weeks ago I've lost 10 pounds and DH says his pants are a little loose (not much) but he's showing signs!!!
I hope everybody's Monday goes well,
Have a great day!!!!!!

Didn't do good weightwise with those meds I was taking last week.and the BBQ baby back ribs with baked beans tip the scale in the wrong dirrection. Oh Well!! there going to be many BBQ's and Parties ahead this summer.
My official W-I:goodscales: will be Wednesday,but I'll be gone off this board for a couple of days. My grandchildren are going to preform in for their ballet recital on Thursday.
Ruth- Sorry to hear about harry,Hope hes on the mend pretty soon.
Lydia-Hate that when you can't sleep,Get some :coffee2: in a you'll dfeel better. Sending you some vibes:goodvibes: so the truck can deliver the swing set.
Angel-Congrats on your new car.
Have to go will be back later Hugs :) BB

Well, I survived the bike trip! It was a beautiful day, sunshine, no wind.....gorgeous! It ended up being a 36 mile bike ride. We had a blast! My 13 year old daughter went with me and it was great for us to spend that time together. We ate at a Mexican restaurant the night before. Had a Salmon taco.............YUMMY! Not too off program. Anyway, I'm officially an addicted bike rider. I've always loved running, but this was way fun!
Well, it sounds like you are all behaving.....maybe a little too busy. Ruth, love and hugs to you and Harry!
06-06-2005, 02:07 PM
Hi, just saying "good afternoon" to y'all. Not too much to report on this blanket....but I'm having a happier day, so that's good. Don't know why my hormones have been so wacky--I'm usually not this up and down. tried some no-sun tanner, so I'll keep you posted on how that ends up looking....kept having visions of the handprint lady mentioned earlier (broad abroad.) Anyway, good day to everyone, and will talk later.
06-06-2005, 03:06 PM
Afternoon all! I have been busy tryin to catch up on all the threads. Lots happenin on da beach today! I know I can not post to everyone! I really need to get off here I hear thunder out there and the last thing I would want is to lose my precious puter! lol
Ruth...Take care. Well wishes to Harry!
Soon...You go girl! That reminds me of when we first moved here it was like the 3rd day and DD and I went to the Dollar General and we are at the check out and all of the sudden one of the girls jumps in front of the door and tells this lady either you give me whats in your bag or I'll call the police. She was like I don't have anything and she said yes you do I saw you and I will lock this doors and call the cops or you can hand it over and I'll let you go. Chick pulls out all kinds of packs of men's underwear from her bag. Goes out and gets in a new Jeep Grand Cherokee! I'm like well that's a nice welcome to a new town!
Anchor...Don't sweat it. Easy for me to say huh! Oh and I can burst your bubble of heart throb marriage real easy! Anytime your thinkin it's all flowers and romance just IM and I'll give ya the real skinny on it! I envy the single chicks! If he don't act right dump him and get another! lol Sounds like you and DS have a lot planned! FUN FUN FUN! Enjoy him while you can. Pretty soon he will be toooo cooool to hang with Mom! lol

Hi Everyone! This is my first time playing around with this website, and I have a few questions. I am currently a member of the Official South Beach Diet website, but I found this and it looks similar. How do you all feel about the quality of this website? I think it might be worth switiching over. This is free, and I spend $65 every 3 months on the SBD site! This seems a little harder to navigate, but that might be because I am new to it. I hope I am doing it right. I figured out the signatures, and they are more user-friendly here... I have been on my 2nd round of SBD since Christmas, and the weight is slowly coming off. I am averaging a little over 1 pound per week. It seems like it is going so slow, but those little pounds add up.
06-06-2005, 06:19 PM
Since I'm new, I will briefly tell a little about myself. I am 22, and engaged to Larry. Our wedding is April 8th, 2006, so if any of you have any tips or great ideas for things, LET ME KNOW! :D I am trying to balance the wedding planning, working full time in accounting, and working on my MBA at night. We just got an apartment together, and we have been dating for 5 years. (since Junior year of HS!). We have one of my younger college friends renting our extra room for the summer. More about me: I have been on SBD for about 3 years now on and off. Started out Spring of 2003, lost 20lbs for vacation, fell off the beach, gained back 35. I restarted Dec 2004, and have since lost 31 of those darn 35 that I regained. I want to lose another 40 or so before the wedding. It took me 5 months to get to 30lbs lost, so I figure in another 6 or so, I can lose the rest. I don't really have time for exercise, but then again, I am rarely on the couch because I am so busy. I am thinking about getting a personal trainer and joining a gym, but I don't know if I have time to fit it in. Well, I guess that's a brief overview... :?:
06-06-2005, 09:25 PM
Hi Jen! Hi to all!
Not much new here. I finally planted my tomatoes!!!!! I was so lazy. I compleyely wasted yesterday doing nothing! :( Well it happens once in a while.
We had our first thunderstorm today. It was wild driving home, but nice now and everything cooled off.
I think I will go to bed soon...I'm still tired.
06-06-2005, 09:40 PM
Hi jen4806! Several of the chicks here used to pay for the official site but stopped when they found this one. FREE is always good! Congrats on your upcoming wedding. There are several chickies around here planning a wedding! Kissjoy who is on the beaches of Hawaii this week is a wedding planner! Welcome aboard!
06-06-2005, 09:46 PM
Oh BTW Jen4806...Did I mention you won't find a better group of supporters anywhere! We're great and usually friendly! lol We try not to throw sand tooooo much or Mama Ruth will beat us with her chicken bag! lol Just kidding...maybe! lol

I am currently a member of the Official South Beach Diet website, but I found this and it looks similar. How do you all feel about the quality of this website? I think it might be worth switiching over.
If you're staying on the beach you might as well stay on this one. It's cozy like a family vacation (or is that crazy...). We have a daily thread which Ruth usually starts as she's an early riser. When she starts the new one she locks the old one. You don't have to try to figure out where to start or read for 3 hours to get caught up.
Bamie, you weren't supposed to tell her we sometimes throw sand until after she set up her stuff. :lol:
