Thank you, Shelley and Sherry. I'm a writer and editor in Philadelphia and, yeah, I have tons to lose. I've grown fond of telling myself, and others, there's no reason to diet because what do I have to show after 28 years of dieting? An exra 120 pounds, is what.

But it finally, like a bolt of lightning, hit me the other day that I haven't been dieting for 25 years. I've been playing. One dangerous fad diet after another. Every pill and potion you can imagine. Going to WW meetings and being shocked -- SHOCKED! -- that I didn't lose weight when I had followed the plan to the letter all week, when what I actually had done was ignore the plan for the first two days (after all, I had all week to catch up and I deserved a break anyway); then worked the plan strictly for two days, then loosely for two days; and then I starved myself the day before the weigh in. Or, when not on WW, weighing myself on three different scales and recording the lowest one as my "real " weight in my chart. Measuring myself and then writing down smaller numbers in a journal ONLY I WOULD SEE. How sick is that? Planning on going to the gym three nights a week, but not really going and then complaining to friends that I can't lose weight even though I work out regularly. Playing this game: After realizing in tears that I "can't" diet, vowing to start going to the gym on Monday, which is better than dieting. Then Monday comes and instead of going to the gym, I tell myself, if I eat right, I don't need to exercise, so next Monday, I'm starting a new diet; then of course, once I blow that, vowing to start going to the gym and so on and so on ...

And the big revelation: I thought that if I pretended to be a good-eating, excerising, health-conscious woman -- even though I'm not -- then people would believe that I was and think that maybe I was afflicted with some disease or condition that made it impossible to lose weight. So it WASN'T MY FAULT. So there.

Even sicker is that I couldn't even admit the truth to myself. Like if I made the lie so complete, then it would be true. If I never admitted my weight to anyone, never admitted my overeating and slovenly habits, then they would actually see a svelte, 125-pound woman.

I know that good self esteem and a great attitude and good heart make you attractive no matter what. But that's NOT what was going on with me. Instead of feeling good about my total self and being fabulous as a result of that, I was hiding my abysmally low self esteem under a cloak of fake fabulous. The difference -- to the outside world -- is subtle, too subtle for others to notice, perhaps. But inside, it made me feel like a fake, like if anyone could see the congealed mess of weight-related insecurity that was resting underneath the surface, they would run far and fast away from me. My whole life was fake because I was not who I was presenting to the world.

Whoa.... I had a germ of an idea about all of this over the past few days, but it wasn't until I was just writing it that I realized the magnitude of it all. You would think being a writer that I would recognize the power of the written word and the writing process. But I guess it was just another part of the lie. I don't have to journal... I know my own thoughts... it's just as effective to analyze them in my had than on paper. Oh, bull.

Hmm.. I guess that's enough for now. I hope you're not sorry you let me in! LOL

And as for my first major diet-related victory: The ticker in my signature is the first time I have ever admitted my real weight to anyone.

Maggie-I saw quite a bit of myself in what you wrote. The only difference with me is that I always follow a diet at the beginning to a T, because I get the "diet high." I almost think I am addicted to dieting. In fact, I probably am. I used to binge, then use suppositories to get it all out. Tell me that's not sick! I think you will fit right in to the crazy group of wonderful ladies here. We also have a bio thread if you feel like giving us some other statistics about yourself. Again, welcome!!

Maggie I bet you feel a lot better now that you admitted this to yourself. We are not here to judge you so don't worry about that. We all have problems or we wouldn't be here. We are here to help you and support you. Welcome to our lovely group. We not only support each other with our weight issues but with our life struggles and chalenges. I really feel they go hand in hand. I over eat when I have stress.

Sherry I noticed your lovely welcome teddies, they are so cute. Thank you for all you do to keep this group up and running.

Wow is it hot and humid here today. Larry is just changing the liner in the pool today so we couldn't even swim. It is an all day job. Tough one too. While Larry was doing that Dez and I went to a couple of garage sales. For $35.00 she bought two lovely blue love seats with wood trim, a blue and white area rug, just like new, an upright vacuum, one oak veneer night table and small dresser, two black rod iron lamps, some cups and glasses. I had prayed daily and sometimes more than once a day for the right place for her to live and for furnishings. Well God answers prayers her suite is just a stone throw away from home, she has next to new furniture that she bought all on her own. My family has donated her a new futon for her bed, used dining room table and chairs and small microwave. I have a used dishwasher for her plus many kitchen items that I have saved as I replaced my stuff. She has a 24 place set of dishes and cutlery plus I am giving her another set for a friend of hers that is moving out. She even has a molinex (sp?) food processor chopper, blender set. She does not have a need for much else. God is good isn't he?

Well better go check on hubby and see if he is lounging in the pool drinking a beer yet! Have a wonderful weekend.

WELCOME MAGGIE! You are free to join in with this great group of gals! We are here for support and motivation.

Sher, yes, we don't tell you enough how special you are. Thank you for the cute graphics and keeping this group going. BTW: Still haven't decided if I will do it in the buff or not???

Shelley, I just read your 10 things about you... I found out a few things I didn't know.

Dee, it sounds like Dez will have a lovely apartment. With her creativity, she will have it fixed up "Dez style" in no time.

Tomorrow we are going to FIL's house for Fathers day then over to my mothers for a birthday celebration in the evening. I'm praying for strength to get me through serving the ice cream and cake. If I choose to eat any, I am going to have half the portion size.

Ramona-How are the boys? I think about them everytime I read the front page of the newspaper.

Yesterday we had my parents over for spaghetti dinner. I not only ate some bread, but after dinner I ate 6 pieces of maundel bread (a jewish sweet cookie like biscotti) that my mom brought over, then I had 1 cup of the best shredded wheat I have ever tasted-vanilla creme. This is the first time in a long while that I have done this. Today I'd better get back OP or I'll show quite a gain on Wed.

Welcome Maggie you sure came to the right place and i saw a little of myself in your writing.

Boy what a Father's Day!!! to say it was a joyous one is saying the least.
Hubby & daughter got into this big fight and it lasted all day. She tried to make amends by cooking lunch for him and he blew it off and pouted all day.
Wouldn't open her card or anything.
Here's a long story short it started when Cara got a boyfriend and Daddy is now second fiddle. Well when she is not home and spending time with the boyfriend at the apt. Daddy decides to bend my ear about how he wants more time with her and doesn't want her to spend so much time from home.
NOW i understand where he is coming from and also her point too but they can still spend time with each other it is not like they will never see each other ever. She hasn't moved out yet but she is working towards moving in with her boyfriend and it is something i don't like but willing to support her on this if it is really something she wants to do.
Her daddy wants to completely cut her off and not give her anything more. I asked him how he can think this when she is a good kid and does wonderful things with and for us and that I would never cut her off from any kind of support that she would need in life. He says that after 18yrs of raising her she owes us....This i totally do not agree with b/c i raised our daughter with love and understanding and the will to be independent and a loving person who can stand on her own not have her grow up and feel like she owes us. You do these things in life b/c you Love them and want to show them how much you appreciated their giving you this knowledge for life. I told him that it is insane to think of him to think along this line b/c he will be the one who will be hurt in the end b/c he drove her away.
I tried by best all day to get these 2 to communicate and without success went to bed with a throbbing headache.

Today i don't have any kids and let Cara drive my car to work and have the whole house to myself with piece and quiet. So i plan to chill all day.

Well i hope everyone else had a better Father's Day than we did.

Thanks for letting me vent and scream.

Hey everyone!

Back to work Monday! Ich.

I think Stewart has, yet again, changed our vacation "plans." For the past week or so instead of saying anything about camping in Arkansas (which was what he had changed his mind to rather than out west), he had been suggesting we visit the deep (as opposed to Arkansas) South. You know, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, etc. Last night, however, he was back to talking "WEST." So, I don't know WHERE we'll end up!

Gayle, Sherry and Shelley--Great to see y'all over on the other thread! I love learning randoms about my friends. I read your posts and I was like "Wow...I didn't know that!"

Gayle, how did your hair turn out? Let me know about that spray tan, too. I've been wanting to do that for a long time--just not brave enough to pop out that much money for something I know nothing about!

I DO NOT IRON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's what the dryer is for!

Cheryl

gdeann
06-21-2005, 12:46 AM
Cheryl, the cost of the tan here is $20.00. My hair turned out good, it is back almost to my natural color. I had lighten it over the years, but decided I better go dark while I can... sometimes really dark hair isn't very becoming as one ages. I keep looking in the mirror and each time I do, I like it more, it suites my complexion better.

No time to post to everyone, I am staying busy with cardio therapy, doctors appointments etc. My mother is settling down, now my FIL is having problems. We take him Wednesday to the clinic and the hospital for testing. I'm not sure yet if I am going out of town Thursday. On a good note, my mother had chest x-rays today and the fluid was gone! The steroids appear to be working! If she has no problems, she will not go back to the doctor until July 12!!! Whew! So far we have been seeing one every week or two.

I hope all is well with everyone, I'm dozing as I type this... I'm going to bed.

Love ya!

Gayle how did you manage with the celebrations. Did you have more cake than you wanted? Having a small piece of cake is ok, you just have to have to be careful with portion control or I will have to haul you swimming with me in the morning! I am so happy to hear that your mom's chest is clear. That must be such a relief for you. Remember to get enough rest so that you aren't to burned out to take care of everyone else. Can you post a picture of your new hair do?

Shelley well I knew that you liked cool whip and some ff frozen treats everyday but I didn't know that you ate a DOZEN of them. You are too funny. That would just be too many points for me on those suckers. Is is about a point each? I didn't realize that you watched your carbs. Having a meal like that once in awhile is ok. You are doing a great job maintaining.

Vicki I am sorry to hear that your hubby and daughter are battling it out. It is hard for Daddy's to let there little girl grow up. I know that Larry want to over protect Dez all the time. It is tough to be caught in the middle.

Cheryl let us know where you are going when you vacation plans are settled. Maybe you won't know for sure until you are heading out the door. I say go with the flow and be happy that you are going somewhere. Sometimes men just have a hard time with making up their minds.

Sherry where did you go? How are you doing? I think that you are working to hard on your time off. It is suppose to be your time off. Chill out for a day and enjoy.

Ramona thanks for popping in. How is everyone doing? Do you have any plans for the summer? We haven't booked any time off yet. It has been really hot here. We had a very cool spring and now we have been hit with extreme heat the last week.

Happy first day of Summer everyone.....Yipee!!!! I love summer. It is a for sure way of getting flowers. Larry has a message pop up on his computer to pick up flowers for Darlene today because it is one of her favorite days. For dinner tonight we will have a big fruit salad with raisons buns.

Dez is packing and will be moving out friday. She is quite excited and so am I. A friend of hers will be moving in with her. It will definitely make it more affordable for her. They work opposite shifts so they won't be seeing much of each other which is a blessing.

My laundry is calling me I better go tend to it. Have a happy summer day. :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER EVERYONE!!!!!!

Dee, I hope you enjoy your dinner tonight, it sounds heavenly... I had 1 small piece of cake and 1 scoop of ice cream and was satisfied. Everything tasted really sweet and really rich, so any more and I would of been sick. As I ate it, I wondered how I use to eat the stuff daily.

Waiting to hear back from the doc today, mom is having dizziness/unsteadiness and heart palpilations, I feel bad for her because today is her birthday. I told her she just had too good of a report yesterday and she thinks she is not going to get the attention. LOL!

Hello :wave:

Dee...I'm here! Just DEEP cleaning the house! I worked the last two weeks so now I'm cleaning and doing laundry! I think I'll REST tomorrow!!! :lol: Your dinner sounds great! I love summer too! :beach: Happy summer to you too!! ;)

Gayle...Have you heard from the doctor yet? Tell your Mom Happy Birthday :woo: and give her a hug!!!

Hello to everyone else!!! I've got to get off here and put another load of clothes in. (my last load!)

Love & Hugs.................

ShelleyM
06-21-2005, 06:14 PM
Gayle-Tell your mom happy birthday from me!

Summer?? It's summer here all year round, who knows the difference????

Dee-I don't really watch my carbs. I try to eat Core most of the time, which is healthy carbs (whole wheat, no sugar, etc.) I have about 6 points during the day and save the rest for dinner and snacks. I usually have about 24-30 points per day to maintain. I hardly ever use all my weekly flex points because I usually earn enough AP's to cover what I eat extra. For instance, this week I only used 4 of my weekly flex points because I earned 30 AP's for the week. I always try to eat my AP's because if I don't I gain.

Sherry-STOP IT!! You put everyone to shame with your shining clean house!! Slow down, after all it is your so called vacation time!

Hi to everyone else, I'm going to lay down and watch my recorded soap instead of running today. I don't know why I'm so tired.

gdeann
06-21-2005, 09:31 PM
Hello all! I will give mom the birthday wishes...THANK YOU!

The doctor really couldn't tell what is causing mom the dizziness and unsteadiness. He said it could be from losing 9 pounds in 3 weeks or she could be dehydrated. I upped fluids and he also told her to take it easy and not go to cardio therapy for the rest of the week. My aunt came out today so I left for awhile today to buy groceries and sneak my tan in!!! :-) It is slowly changing, the girl said it usually takes 6-8 hours. And YES, I did it in the buff!!! (giggles) She assured me I was in TOTAL privacy, so I decided what the heck! I had almost talked myself out of it, but I decided I only live once, so just do it! It wasn't near as bad as I imagined...

mzbhavin
06-22-2005, 08:09 AM
Gayle...I hope your mom gets better soon i will be thinking about her as my Mom is slowly slipping from reality and the stress and the worry that it brings to us.

Sherry I was wondering what that shine&glare was coming from the south now i know it is from you and the sparklingly house. Try and enjoy yourself while on vacation.

Things here have quieted down some they are at least on somewhat of talking terms. But heck if things don't work out soon maybe i will leave and find a new place to live and they can duke it out in the house just the 2 of them.

Well got to go for some blood tests so i will check you gals later.

Deelite
06-22-2005, 08:34 PM
Pretty quiet here today.

Gayle I forgot to tell you that when we went to the ball game on sunday we played against the Kansas T-bones. Kinda neat thinking that I have a friend from there. So you didn't it in the raw, did you. I am sure it looks so much better that way anyways. Would you consider doing it again sometimes? Are you as dark as you expected?

Sherry I hope that all your laundry is done today and that you are taking a break from all the work.

Shelley i follow the points systems with ww's. I don't know the core program very well. I am like you if I don't eat my Ap's I gain weight. Seems weird that if we don't eat enough we gain. That is the story of my life. I haven't eatten enough for the exercise I do so I gain. It is hard to get this through my thick head.

Vicki that is pretty funny what you said about Sherry's place. I think that I can see the sparkle from here too. You want to sneak away and come see me and let them duke it out while we lounge in the pool with out cocktails?

It is very hot tonight and we promised my mom that we would help her plant the garden. Usually she has most of it in by mid may but because of all the rain it just didn't happen. I guess I should say that Larry is putting in the garden I am just a supervisor. Better go it isn't going to get any cooler so might as well get it done.

Dee. sounds good to me lounging in the pool with a coctail...Let's see if anyone here would notice if i was gone for a few days. ...Probably so they are planning a birthday party for me Saturday...but that sure does sound tempting.

Dang Sherry it is still glowing down your way would you quit it is making me look bad. hehehehhehehehehe

gdeann
06-23-2005, 01:34 AM
Dee, did you go to a semi-pro baseball game? I think they are from Kansas City. Yes, I will do the tan again, I turned out a nice golden tan, not to dark and not to light, probably just right for my first time. The girl working made me feel at ease.

Vickster, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ON SATURDAY! I won't be here, so I'm posting your birthday message early. Wishing you a blessed day with family, filled with love... you deserve it.

Leaving at 5:00 Am!!!!!! We will be at the Country Stampede in Manhatten Kansas, if any of you want to join us!!!!! We will make sure and drink plenty of fluids (beer) to stay hydrated!!! Steve & I spent an hour or so today making 150 jello shots! A yummy one is green apple jello with butterscotch schnapps. :-) Love you guys, be careful and I want to see LOTS of postings by the time I make it back on Monday!!!!

Love you!!!!! Gayle

Sherry
06-23-2005, 11:35 AM
Gayle.....I didn't get to tell you bye! :( I hope you have a very nice trip and don't get too hot!!!! The jello shooters sound yummy! Don't drink too much girlie! I miss ya already!!!

Dee....Why don't we go to KS and see Gayle???!! Wouldn't that have been awesome????????

I've gotta go...Taking Drew to get new tires put on his car! I'll post again later or tomorrow before I leave for camping. We're going this weekend with Debbie & her family. But they are staying for a week! We can only stay the weekend.

See ya :wave:

Deelite
06-23-2005, 11:45 AM
Gayle have a great time. Even before I read Sherry's post I thought about how much fun it would be to join you this weekend. The shooters sound good. I have had the jello shooters before but never with green apple. We don't have that flavor here. :( Can you use diet jello when you make them?

Sherry I am glad that you can get away with Debbie. Camping sounds fun. I hope that the weather treats you right. Have a great time and enjoy every minute of it.

Vicki you want me to invite Gayle and tell her to bring some jello shooters down? We can have a birthday party for you here.

It is so hot and humid this morning. Walking home from swimming the one mile I was just dripping. Now my girlfriend is heading out to meet me for another walk. Which just reminds me I haven't put the coffee on for us. I better get going.

Have a great day.

ShelleyM
06-23-2005, 04:59 PM
Bye Gayle!!

Okay, Dee. Tell me, just how hot is it??

Sherry-I am so happy that you are getting away with Debbie and her family, even if it's just for the weekend. I think you need the time together.

Dee, Sherry, Vicki, Gayle-What is a shooter?

Deelite
06-23-2005, 06:42 PM
Shelley with the humidex is 111 F out. How enough for you? I am sure you get many of those days. lol what is a shooter? You are deprived Shelley. It is a alchol beverage about an oz,that you drink fast but in this case it is jiggly jello in a small cup. Very taste and refreshing.

Today Dez got the keys to her apartment. Nice and close to home but I will tell you she has a landlord lady that is a quack. She is rude, mean and probably dishonest. I just about came home and drank after going through the condition report. Dez thanked me for being there and not bopping LL in the face when she was shouting in mine. I have never meet someone as crazy as her. I even asked Dez if she really wanted the place that bad. There are already so many stories to tell and she hasn't even moved in yet. I am sure that she will be having problems with this LL. Poor kid, it is quite a wake up call to some of the poeple this world is made up with that we have to deal with. On the other hand I am so glad that she is moving out. Yipee time for Larry and I to party never mind her having a moving in party I think that we will have a moving out party one more to go. lol

Guess what my gourmet dinner is tonight?
Popcorn drizzles with icing, I figured thatsince Larry isn't coming home for dinner I will splurge and treat myself. I am still under in points by 5 points and I am not even using my ap's.

I think it's settled--South Dakota (only) for our vacation.

You know, we had originally planned to do the whole "midwest thing" originally, when we had 9 days. Now that it's been cut back to five, we're just doing that one state. I think we're going to drive over to Oklahoma City and up, but I'd rather drive up through Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska--just don't want to spend all that driving time in OK and KS (sorry Gayle!!).

I hope plans don't change between now and week-after-next!

Hope Gayle and Sherry and Debbie have fun on your respective vacations!

Shelley--I've never had a shooter, but I've been in clubs and seen those Jello shooters--they LOOK yummy!

Dee--your weather sounds a lot like ours! Ich! Hot and humid, with no rain in sight. Our poor farmers!

Deelite

Cheryl south dakota is beautiful. I love the lush green rolling hills. Lots of cattle and horse ranches. You will enjoy it. I see you are down 4 pounds, congratulations.

ShelleyM
06-24-2005, 06:41 AM
I still don't understand. So the jello ones you eat with a spoon?

Dee-I hope Dez isn't making a mistake by moving into the place. Sounds like the LL is really wacked, and that is no way to have to live. I just hope she doesn't get tired of it within the next couple of months. Maybe she can also be looking around for other places just in case.

Cheryl-I hope you have a wonderful trip. When are you leaving?

Deelite
06-24-2005, 12:00 PM
Shelley you are right, she is very wacky. I do agree with you if things don't work out she should start looking for a new place asap. Hopefully she will not have to deal with the LL to often. I tell you it was just cooking in her suite last night. The friend of hers that helped her move is a big sweet heart but he is very large, probably close to 300 pounds. He was just sweat'n. We were giving Dez a window air conditioner and he asked if he could set it up for her right away.....lol. Well we did. Guess what, they decide around 11:30 last night to unplug and plug it in the plug below. They didn't shut it off and when they plugged it back in they blow a fuse. Oh man, since we live to close guess who came over and woke us up for a fuse? You guessed and we didn't have any so Larry got out of bed and went over there to see if he could switch one of the fuses. He would have let them try but he was afraid one of them might get electricuted trying. Kids, when do they grow up? I guess I should know because even when she was in Brandon she still called me in the middle of the night. Some of her stuff is moved but today is the big day to bring the rest of the stuff over. I will be helping unpacking. By the end of the day yesterday I was limping so bad from doing the three flights of stairs I don't know how many times but I do know too many times. Desiree's big friend was so sweet, when I went down the stairs he held my hand giving me the support I needed because there isn't a rail down the full lenght of the stairs. He even offered me his hand when I was getting up from the cusions off the floor. I told Dez maybe you should consider him for a boyfriend he is always there when you need him. She just laughed at me and said I have a boyfriend already, why you trying to set me up with him. Maybe one they will date, they did go out about 3 years for awhile and have remained best friends since.

Ok my day is awaiting, I walked and swam already so time to get going. Have a good one.

Hey Vicki are you still coming over for your 3FC floozie pool birthday party? Coctails are on, with jello shooters made by Gayle. Shelley will get a first here. Pools hot and so are you!

mzbhavin
06-26-2005, 10:37 AM
I am on my way and those jello shooters are sounding better everytime i hear of them.
Shelley dang girl you must be wanting to get out of Florida bad, have you had alot of rain.

My birthday was great --Cara took me to lunch at Bahama Breeze-never been there before and one of my parents had given me a gift certificate there for the b/d. The food was great and i tried this drink called the Parrot Punch and it was awesome. It had Key Largo Schnaaps,raspberry schnaaps,peachtree schnaaps,vodka,orange juice and cranberry juice and sprite. I wasn't driving thank heavens.

When we got home hubby later started grilling steaks and then the Cara & her b/f came in with a swing that i had been wanting for the backyard. Plus got some Donna Karen "cashemere mist" great smelling cologne.
So I did very well for a woman is a double nickel now...

Hey Dee i almost there and hope Shelley hasn't eaten all the jello shooters
