Hi there, Sheria, I found the new thread. :wave: Thanks for starting it up!

Ok I am back.....I have just been so darn unmotivated! I just can not seem to do it right now. I did start back going to the Y......been going every other day......I just seem to need a day to recover right now....hopefully that will get better and I get back to going everyday. I have been walking 2 1/2 miles in 40 minutes which is a pretty good pace....and doing a few weights afterwards.....taking about an hour.
So I feel good about it! I guess just doing what I can for now is good!

Hello ladies,

I starting to settle into the new job, but there is SOOOO much that our ex-sec never bothered to tell or show me, so I've been floundering a bit, but am now starting to get the hang of it all. I will have to make a whole new filing system as hers just sucked and when I have some spare time I will start on that.

Joggie decided yesterday to give all my drawing work away to our other draftsman, so I was a bit upset (and p*ssed off) and had a few words with him about that! This is only temporary and I don't want to find next year that I have no work again!!

Am back exercising again this week and even dieting! Although I did eat a whole packet of biscuits last night! (cookies) I did manage to do a good stint on the bike afterwards though.

Saturday is a friend's baby bash and then I'm staying over with another friend, so may not be eating too well this weekend. Last weekend I stayed with my sister and mugged one of my niece's little friends for her chocolate!! I'm really the aunt from **** at times!!

Must go and do filing.

hi singles! i'm finally here. i have been having some isp problems. don't know why...this my second attempt tonite alone. i am getting very frustrated.

sheri- thanks for starting the new thread!!! how did you like TBL this week? it's every man/woman for themselves now. it ought to get interesting. i'm kind of glad shannon got booted. not that i disliked her, i just thought she was the best choice. and she sure looks good now.

welcome back lilybutt! good job on the exercise. i can't walk that fast. i do about a 20 minute mile. i try like crazy though. if i go faster i can't workout for a couple of days at least, so i figure it is better to build up slowly. my legs are soooo tired from work so it is hard to walk at all sometimes.

meg - have fun this weekend!

well, i am pooped so i'm off to dreamland! i will try to get back soon!

Hey there! Good to see everyone!

Welcome back, lilybutt. Good going on getting back to the Y regularly!

Congrats on the new job, megsa, and on getting back to exercising. I'm sure everything will work itself out on the job.

Kathy--I am wondering who is going to win this thing (BL). Last year, I think the winner was the person who lost the most pounds, but didn't they change it this year to the most percentage? Matt really took a HUGE gamble on gorging himself when he got the immunity--gaining TWELVE pounds in a week? Holy moses! I was actually hoping for Andrea to go but I knew it would be Shannon because she's more of a threat weight-loss wise. Andrea is almost at goal, I think, and I'm told by many folks who are maintaining that it gets much harder to lose the last 10-20 pounds. It's interesting how Matt & Seth have become the ones who are still standing at the end of every challenge. I would have never guessed that Seth was capable of that at the beginning of this thing. I mean, Matt is not only a former athelete but he is one of the most competitive people I have ever seen...I think to a disturbing degree. Can't wait for the finale!

Hello ladies,

I was forced to work a bit for my money yesterday, so didn't get time to post! My weekend was good and my pregnant friend phoned me yesterday to say thank you for chocolate and to say that she thinks I'm looking really good! We haven't seen each other since the end of August, so it was really encouraging of her to say it. Especially as my weight loss has stalled and it is demotivating me in a HUGE way! Also re-read a book by Patrick Holford and have now added some raw carrots and a bit of olive oil and fish to my daily intake. Was absolutely stuffed yesterday and was a bit like the Energiser bunny last night. Feeling much more positive today and hoping that it shows up on the scale soon!

Have been coerced into attending a kitchen tea this coming weekend, by my sister (her son is getting married) and not looking forward to it. Was hoping for a quiet weekend to recover from two hectic ones! My sis says if she has to go, I have to as well!! Will just have to wait until we close in mid December to recover!

Must go.

hi singles! sorry i have been MIA. i hurt my knee and had to avoid the stairs for a while and guess where the computer is......of course, downstairs. :(
it is starting to feel somewhat better. i also have to avoid the treadmill for a couple of weeks too. :(

sheri- it is getting down to the wire on TBL. i was sad to see dr. jeff go, but what a great attitude he has about everything. there needs to be more people in the world like him. didn't he look fabulous in his update.. what an inspiration! what got to me was when he said how much easier it is to walk, and take stairs now. i have lots of problems with that because of my knees. i think the finale will inspire a lot of people and i can't wait to see it either. i wonder when the next one is???

meg - i have lots of trouble with the fish thing myself. i would like to eat more also but i am a picky eater. i tried a tilapia filet a couple of weeks ago. i broiled it and sprayed it with pam and then lightly breaded the top with just a couple of Tbsps of bread crumbs. it was actually pretty good and not too fishy tasting.

well, i am pooped. did some xmas shopping today after work. i have to get all this done soon, because i have to start getting ready for my annual xmas trip to florida. i think it will be hard this year for both my mom and myself without my dad this year. we will get thru together!

have a good friday!

Kath...sorry to hear about the knee! Glad to hear it is improving. I know how frustrating that can be when you have to back off on exercising (and other activities) because of an injury. I had a bad rotator cuff (shoulder) injury in 2002 and I didn't go to the gym for 6 months. Even walking on a treadmill jostled my shoulder too much and caused too much pain.

As for your quote above about fish, I am in the same boat too! I have always hated fish (and most seafood, for that matter) but I really want to learn to like at least one or two kinds because of the omega3s and because it is healthy food. Over the past 2 years, when I have been out to eat with friends or family who have ordered fish, I have asked for a bite of their fish so that I can start to figure out what I like and don't like.

Like you, tilapia is the least offensive that I've tried so far, but I haven't yet been as brave as you and actually bought and cooked it myself! I have circled the fish section of my grocery store and LOOKED at it, but haven't gotten as far as BUYING it. hehe I think I'll wait for a nice spring or summer day when I can put it on the grill. I love most things grilled!

I keep forgetting to email my 3FC password to work so that I can log on from there. I've come to the site a few times this week at work only to be reminded that I have to log in and I can't cuz I don't know my password!

Happy Thanksgiving to all. I'm going to be heading to Delaware on Wednesday or Thursday morning and will be gone all weekend. When it comes to Thanksgiving, I believe in eating a little of everything, so I'm looking forward to the stuffing, turkey, gravy, potatoes and all! :)

hi singles! sure is quiet here again. where did alll those people go that were visiting for a while???

sheri - i am planning to go down to nyc for turkey day, weather permitting. they are predicting a big snow storm this week possibly. if that happens, i won't be traveling. i'm keeping my fingers crossed, because i haven't spent a turkey day with family in years. i hope you have a safe trip, keep an eye on the weather, and give that favorite poochie of yours a hug for me.

well, in case i don't get back, i hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!

hi singles! sure is quiet here again. where did alll those people go that were visiting for a while???

As I recall, last year at this time, the thread was busy all fall and then, once the holidays came, it was a wasteland. I remember looking up a few of the people who had been posting and not only had they not posted here, but they hadn't even been on 3FC at all for months. :(

As I've posted before, it seems that people here (3FC, not just this thread) tend to withdraw when they are not doing well. The holidays are prime time for many people not doing well, as the temptations of holiday food and the pressures of food with family become too much.

I fear that it's going to be quiet again for a few months until we pick up the resolutioners after the first of the year. :(

You have a safe drive too! In my area, they're talking about rain and possibly wet snow on Thanksgiving and I'll be driving to Delaware early that morning. Hopefully it will be warm enough (I think it's supposed to be low 40s) that it won't freeze and make the roads dangerous.

In New York, it will likely be colder and more snow so you be careful! You taking your poochies with you in the car?

11-27-2005, 01:31 PM
hi singles! i hope everyone is working off all that turkey dinner!lol!

i had a very nice day with my family. the drive there was a little hairy, but coming back was nice. i have spent the rest of this nice long weekend cleaning and decorating for xmas.

the next 3 weeks will be very hectic. i have to work all the weekends to save some $ for my florida trip. shopping to do, parties to go to etc...don't you just love this time of the year?! then after new years, we will all be bored to death.

sheri - i hope your trip was as good as mine. my girlies had to stay home. my lab/shep has sprained her back. the vet said it is because of her age. just a small jump can do it. i am very worried about her, even though she seems to be getting a little better.

well, i have more decorating to finish. have a great week!

Glad you had a great trip, Kath. Sorry to hear about your pup's back.

I had a great Thanksgiving with my closest friends in Delaware. Did not overeat too badly at all on Thankgiving, but boy did I eat a lot of leftovers in the next few days! hehe Finally, I went out Saturday to Applebee's and got a nice salad so I could get some healthy food in me! :)

Glad to hear that you both had a good weekend. I spent it at home and didn't go out at all!! After 3 weekends of endless people I just needed to be quiet and recharge my batteries. I also only got paid yesterday, so had no money to spend on anything!

My friend Rose had her baby on Saturday, 3 weeks early, but both are well. Her name is Luca-Rose and I hope to get to meet her soon.

My weight loss has stalled, but it may be due to some of the added pressure with the extra work, but that will hopefully end soon. We put an ad in the local paper last week and I now have CV's coming out of my ears! There are so many people her desperate for work! Looking forward to the time off over Christmas - we close on the 15th and then start again after New Year. A definate perk to working for Engineers!

Whew! No new posts in almost a week! I'm only here on the weekends until I can remember to send my darned password to work so I can get on there again! It's **** gettin' old. ;) The ol' brain, she is a mess!

November was NOT a good month for me. I set goals on another website and followed up with them every week but I actually GAINED weight during the month. I have been eating way too much sodium...part of that was due to one of my goals. I was trying to make things easier on myself when I come home from my long 11-hour work day...so I set one of my goals to eat 1-2 lowfat frozen dinners a week. I figured this would be fast and easy for me AND assure me a balanced, lowfat meal. But unfortunately, most of those frozen dinners have WAY too much sodium for someone like me (I'm hypertensive and I am very sensitive to sodium on top of that) so I just filled up with fluid retention from the extra salt. Ick! I'm back down to my first week of November weight now, so looking better!

Hope you will all check in now and then through the holiday season, whether you doing well or not! You don't have to say if you aren't doing well, but we will support you either way!

Hi there ladies,

Had an extremely hectic week and didn't get much time online. Did interviews for the receptionist's post and that meant two days of running backwards and forwards and not accomplishing very much! Tomorrow the boss will be doing the final two interviews and I can then go on holiday in peace, as I'll be back at my other desk next year.

We close on Thurs for Christmas and will only be back in Jan. I cannot wait!!! We had our year end function yesterday and went microlighting! It was great fun and I now want to go again! It was much more relaxed than lunch at a resturant would have been!

My eating hasn't been so good, but last week was better. Hope to get on track again when I'm at home and can cook again. My mom and I have found a flat and we will be moving at the end of Jan. It is in the same block as my brother so it means not having to buy a washing machine for a while yet!! He will also be nearby to rescue us from parktown prawns!! (they are these really ugly bugs that we get here!) Now all we have to do is pack and that will give her new worries!

I won't be posting much until Jan as I won't want to run up my mom's phone bill! Will check in until thurs though.

If no contact before then, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

meg - i'm glad you and your mom found a flat. i'm envious, you get quite a holiday of days off. enjoy it! ok, now i have to ask what is "microlighting"?

Hi ladies,

Kathy, microlighting is basicly a hang glider with seats and an engine! It steered the same way as a hang glider. Is really cool and we went up to 2000 feet. Hope the photo attachement comes through.

We're closing up today at about 12, so if no more contact, will be back in the new year.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I'm new here and thrilled to find this thread. I'm 30 and single and often find the holidays kind of depressing. I've recently made huge strides in conquering my emotional eating issues and have developed a much more healthy relationship with food. This time of year is a struggle, though, to keep moving forward, but to also enjoy our friends and family, and some of the wonderful holiday treats - without guilt or shame!

Hi everyone! Just a quick note from home before I hop in the shower to get to work. I overslept today and was just having a bowl of cereal while I check my email so I thought I'd pop over here since I can't from work.

Hope you all have a marvelous holiday! I will be out of town and off line a few days over the Christmas weekend.

Have a great time in Florida, Kath! Wave hi to my brother. :)

hi singles! i've been trying to pop in but i couldn't get my mom's computer to let me to the site. she has special programming for work purposes and she had to cancel the pop up blocker for me to pop in.

i am having a nice relaxing visit. i have been very lucky with the weather. i have done a lot of pool side sitting. we didn't do any tourist stuff this time, so basically i just got some needed rest. i head home on wednesday and i think i am ready. i miss my girlies!

i don't know about you but i am sure glad this holiday thing is over. too hectic for me. now i can focus on some things for myself.

welcome hibiscus8! glad to have you here. what are some of your tips for emotional eating?? i sure can use any help i can get.

i will check back later this week when i get home. have a great week!

Hello Ladies,

The hols are over and it's back to work today, although there are only two of us here and I'm sure we'll be leaving early! The hols were good, my nephew's wedding went off without a hitch and he also started work today at his first 'real' job. I had a week of house sitting and watched an incredible amount of tv as they have cable which I don't have at home - my useless miscelaneous information has increased tenfold! lol. Have started back on Weight Watchers as of yesterday and have made all sorts of charts and things to keep me on track. I've picked up some weight over the last month or so, but things always seem easier to do in January! Did weights yesterday and am now really stiff with sitting at my desk for so long! I also find that without the exercise I'm much stiffer and more painful even with all the vitamins and supplements that I take. Doesn't bode well for the future, but I hope that I can ****** some of the degeneration as I go along. I've also got a very croaky voice so I sound really good when I answer the phone!

Must go now and have a look at all the other sites I've missed since I've been away.

Good to see people posting here again. I was feeling abandoned! hehe

Glad you guys had a good holiday. I did too...was in Delaware. The only downside is that it's very likely my favorite pup won't see another Christmas, so we were all a bit teary on Christmas morning. Several of us gifted pictures of him and such...I got them all a sheet of stamps with Paco's picture on them...got one for myself too. Not cheap but a special gift!

Second week back at work and I actually HAD work yesterday - typed non stop nearly the whole day! Today is back to surfing and reading! Next week my pet engineer is back so things will get more hectic. I also only habe 2 more weeks of sitting out front here and then I can go back to my little desk in the corner!! I can't wait!

My dieting is back on track and I lost 1,5kg last week!!!! Have been keeping a food diary and noting down all that I eat and exercise as well. Hope that the motivation continues like this!

hi singles! i don't know what happened to it, but i did post last weekend. it must have gotten lost in cyberspace....

sheri - as i posted before, i am saying prayers for Paco! did you watch the family biggest loser show last week?? tonite is a couples show. they are just one niter specials that cram several months into 2 hours. the one mother on last week looked like a whole new woman. she lost 81lbs. amazing!!!

meg - congrats on you new motivation. i too have the new year motivation thing going on. i have been eating really good and i just walked on the treadmill for the first time in a long while. i feel better already just from cutting all the junk food out.

i do have a banquet to go to this weekend. i am going to formulate some kind of plan before i go. maybe just to take a small serving of the things i never get and only make one trip to the buffet.

well, i have to get upstairs to watch my show. will check back soon! have a good thursday!

IT'S FINALLY FRIDAY!!!

Work hasn't really got off the ground yet (and my pet engineer is only back on Monday) so I've had very little to do this week. I have spent one day typing and the rest just sitting around twiddling my thumbs! Yesterday was the worst - I thought I was going to fall off my trolley I was so bored!!! Have got a book and three magazines today.

I am still sticking to the diet and exercise schedule, although I was reading about my suggested heart rate yesterday and tried to get to a 'moderate' rate last night on the bike - and couldn't even get close!!! My workout was a bit shorter than usual, but I pushed as hard as I could and just couldn't manage it!!! Even so, I do feel like I've lost some more weight - even with TOM!!

Tomorrow we go and sign our lease for the new flat - Yay!! Will start packing in earnest so that I can find my floor again - it is covered in books and junk at the moment - occupational hazard with me!!

Our new secretary is popping in later so I can start to show her the ropes so let me go and collect myself.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend (It seems to have stopped raining now after almost a week of solid rain - but we do need it!)

You back home now, Kath? Glad you had a relaxing time in Fla!

Yes, I did see the first Biggest Loser special...the family one. It was REALLY good and I think I actually got more invested--even though you had a much shorter time to get to know the participants than in the regular season--because they came into the ranch already bonded and pulling for one another. That made it a really special experience. The before and after on both families was quite amazing!

The new episodes of "Lost" started up this past week so I didn't get to see the fiances Biggest Loser special and won't be seeing the one coming up this week either. When Lost is in new episodes, it wins out over most anything! :)

New Year's motivation is always a welcome thing. I'm finally seeing the scale moving---in the RIGHT direction for a change--so that is a wonderful thing.
Congrats on your WW success, Meg.

hi singles! how goes it?? not a whole lot to report here. my motivation is still here. i did slack a little over the weekend because of the banquet i went to, but i enjoyed myself so it was worth it. i lost 1.6 lbs at my weigh-in monday. that made me happy. i am trying something new along with my tops group this week. we are following a diabetic carb counting regimen. it really looks like most others just from a different point of view. i'm always counting something or other. lol!!!

sheri - i'm glad you are seeing the results you want. keep up the good work!!!
i have never followed "lost", so i don't know a lot about it. the couples biggest loser is ok, but i think the one girl has an attitude that doesn't fit the norm for that show.

meg - please don't fall off your trolley...i don't want you to get hurt. lol!! good work on the exercise. i can't get to that heart rate either. i am too out of shape. right now i am focusing on trying to make it a habit. 1/2 hour a day for now to start, then i will build it up.

well, have a happy humpday! keep up the motivation!!!!

i wrote in my last post that i was trying something new with my tops group. so far, so good. i took it one step further and went to the website calorieking.com and surfed a while. there was a lot of support and lots and lots of good info so i joined. it was $30 for a year (using code NEWYEAR). there is lots of stuff you can visit for free. just thought you might want to check it out.

i am off to a very belated xmas get- together today. we had to put it off because my friend's dad hasn't been well. he has good spells and bad spells.

i hope everyone had a great week!

Congrats, Kathy!

I've been taking a course since the first week of January on Barnes & Noble University (online) called Best Year of Your Life given by author Debbie Ford. It's a really good course for the first of the year, because it feeds into that feeling of renewal and new motivation many of us seem to feel around that time of the year. The "You can DO it!" enthusiasm. There are like 2500 people signed up for the course so the message traffic is overwhelming, but I'm trying to keep going with it. I really need to turn things around.

Looks like we've lost the other folks again, Kathy. I realize I'm not posting much myself anymore. I keep forgetting to send my password to work so I can get back on there...but the reality is that I've been so busy at work that even if I did, chances are I wouldn't be able to post much from there anyway. As it is, I check in once a week from home and even then sometimes I forget about the site altogether because there are so few posts. It's frustrating when I'm used to another site that has a dozen and sometimes two dozen new postings per day. What I'm looking for is to give and receive support but if you can't get a group together who is willing to stick with each other, you can't have a support group. That said, I have always appreciated your support, Kathy, and hope that you have felt supported by me as well.

Well, Kathy, it certainly can't be said that we didn't give it the old college try! We've been keeping this thread going for well over a year...I know because I recall we've been through two Christmas seasons together. I appreciate your support greatly and wish you the very best. I don't remember what other board you post on, but I can always be found in the fan forum on www.kathleendaelemans.com.
