Hi Jen! 5 years !!!! :cp: :flow1: :cloud9: :cp: :flow1: MUst be love!!!

Het Court,thanx for what you said about the idol thing!! Made me feel good!!!

HI Kelli!! Its almost over!!!!! You'll be back to your usual sunny self!!

Hi Dani!!!!! How R U today??

Wide in Winnipeg
11-08-2005, 06:11 PM
HI Eddy... I didnt forget abot you!!!

11-08-2005, 08:44 PM
:( hey everyone, andrea- you are one of the strongest people ive met , keep pushing through your problems...and you'll come out on the other side a better person. even though you are great already.

courtney- whats up? i didnt know that me and you are the same age....1983 was a great year, lol

kelli- u know how many times ive screwed up my diet and sabotaged my plans? a million. but just remember that its ok to do bad once and awhile...just dont make it a habit. get right back to ur confident healthy self, you'll feel better. but u knew that. hurry up and shake off the grumps! lol

wendy- "BIGGEST MOTIVATION:to be healthy for me
and my son,and to make my ex jealous!" i love making exes jealous, its a wonderful feeling! haha it's like a subtle way of saying....look how amazing i look and you cant touch!!!

so today i did really good. went back to the gym after four days of being lazy. i love working out when i get there....i just wish i'd make myself get there more often. i had tomato soup w/ brown rice for lunch. and salmon, broccoli and sweet potato for dinner. dessert i had sugar free choc. pudding. it was a pretty yummy day.

my proud moment- standing up to a client who wanted me to dematt her dog. (who was a matted disaster) i said sorry im not doing that to ur dog, its painful and not right. so i sent him home a mess for her to work on. people are sooooo superficial. its just hair, it will grow back!

biggest loser is on in 20 very excited! between this thread and that show i have so much motivation!

thanks for all the love ladies!

Jen :encore:

11-08-2005, 10:58 PM
awwwwww how sweet are all of you!?(((((((((((( ))))))))))))))) thank you all sooooo much! i appreciate it! i went through further **** latrer on today w additional testing.....cry cry cry! thats all i did. not good w that stuff. im drained but am ok thanks to my anx meds and a good massage. so......w all that said i will say this:
wendy: im ok w the bronchitis thank god and......i dunno how the **** u fasted bc i did that unintentionally and was ready to pass out. i just ate for the 1st time in 25 hrs no food/drink!

jeeeeeen!! thank you sweetheart! you are my spirtit keeper upper!! hehe good job today!

hey miss kell!!!!! hows it goin?
hey court! sup?

11-08-2005, 10:59 PM
kell, jen , wendy, court..... i love you guys!!!!! (((((((( )))))

everyone else im lookin fwd to knowing:)

11-09-2005, 12:19 AM
How are my girls? I miss you guys! I messed up again today -- however, like Jen said ... I'm just gonna pick back up tomorrow & try to be fresh and just stop this screwing up! I hate when I do it but if I let it get to me too much, then I'll just give up! it's good for me when "The Biggest Loser" is on because I can see some real life stuff ... like I don't know if any of ya'll watch it but seeing how Pete changed really had me motivated and now this week Shannon looks good. It's not like she's a tiny little thing but compared to what she was, she looks like a million bucks!

Anyway though ... Andrea, you are definitely strong girl! Sorry I haven't been emailing ... I'll get back on track with that manana! Hey Wendy, thanks for being sweet ... what's up Georgie .... hey Courtney ... You girls are a great strong support system for me and I'm lucky to have you and I really appreciate all the support you give out! I love you guys!

Talk to you all tomorrow with a healthy, more optimistic (sunny) outlook .... I will workout tomorrow (I haven't worked out since Friday :( ) so I will feel better just because of that!

Night ladies!

11-09-2005, 09:23 AM
Good Morning all!!!! well I am going to have to make this short...I am sick and at work...not a happy person today...I am running on 2 hours of sleep and some sort of cold or at least that is what I hope it is....I am going to try and stick to my diet but right now all I want is a big bag of reeses cups!! I wish I would have stayed home...sorry for the venting.....I hope all of you have a great day!!!

Andrea bless your heart! I hope you have a better week then you have had so are a strong woman and can get through all of this!

Wendy...I am glad I made you feel is the truth you are so sweet and such a good support for us all

Jen sup! lol 1983 was the best year!! I hope you are doing well!!!

Kelli hang in there gurl I am sure you will get back on track today!

kelly: hey girlie.. im not gonna let you beat yourself up do you hear me young lady?! (((( )))

hi wendy! hows it hangin? ((( ))))

hi courtney! you feel better girlie ok? there are better ways to pamper yourself w/o blowing it like low sodium soup and instant cocoa made w low fat milk. get yourself some vitamin c capsules too. it helps! i take mine every day. oh and ditto on the no beating self thing i gave to miss kell ya hear?
hi jenn! whatcha doin?((((( ))))

11-09-2005, 12:26 PM
YAYYYYYYY Andrea good luck on that 50lb ribbon I know you can do it.....thanks for the advice I had some orange juice this AM and I am feeling a little better....I think what makes it so bad is that I am at work and I am just so tired...I just turn in to a complete baby when I get sick..worse then my BF

Wide in Winnipeg
11-09-2005, 12:43 PM
Well good morning!!!!!!I am as sick as a dog too Courtney! I have this horrible cough and sore throat thing happening,not to mention the sneezing and snotty nose!! :lol: Oh well,life goes on!
I went to the Doc. myself yesterday,man did he ever give me a complete overhaul...complete with oil change I think!! :lol: :lol: :lol: E-rays show I have broncitus now along with the cold,If it were contagious I could blame Andrea!!!!LOL :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: so,I got my meds for that and I'm trying a new inhaler which cost me$158.00,along with the meds and another inhaler it cost over$200.00,merry Christmas to me I'd say :eek: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :eek:
Well girls I hope your day is great,I'm going to do my workout this afternoonand eat well and maybe have a nap!!!Thats the luxery of being mostly a stay at home mom!!!
Talk to ya'll later

11-09-2005, 12:43 PM
thanks courtney!

im slowly trying to workout so i do have a chance at the star this wi. its becoming clear that this urine retention thing is making a difference. i woulda loved to have seen what i weigh if they had gotten it all yesterday., which they didnt bc an ultrasound revealed my bladder was still completely full.

im glad you are feeling a little better. you may still wanna consider the caps tho bc excess just gets excreted which means they can only help more. i take 500 mg 3x day.(((( ))))

11-09-2005, 03:50 PM
awwwww wendy I hate that you are sick least we can suffer together I am doing a little mom took me out for lunch...I really did not feel like eating much so I just got a sweet tea since I was not eating I figured on sweet tea would not be so bad? I know I am sick when I don't feel well enough to eat something :(

Andrea good luck with the WI....I remember when I had those kidney stones and the constant feeling of having to pee ugh it was bad!!!! I just got a whole bunch of cranberry juice and gulped it down till I felt like I was floating lol......thanks for the cap idea I will check that seems I have been feeling bad since we moved into this new mom swears I am allergic to my BF cat but I feel bad at work to...I think it is stree..oh well like wendy said life goes on!

chat to ya'll later!!!

11-09-2005, 04:58 PM
this is a quickie cuz i gotta run out in a few.

andrea!- :bravo: :cp: gl with ur ribbon! i hope all is well.

wendy and courtney!- :barf: i hope you guys feel better, but tis the season to be sick as a dog. get it out now b4 the holidays. wendy you are too funny. your posts always make me lol.

kelli- first of all biggest loser is amazing, and didnt matt look soo hot with his haircut????? i know you'll get back on track. keep on truckin!
:flow2:<~~sunnykells lol

so tomm is my weigh in. i hope i lose something. lately i havent lost a thing. but i feel better so thats all that matters. i dont think im gonna reach my jan 8th goal but im in no rush. and i dont want to feel pressured and then quit. the faster you lose it the faster you gain it back. slow and steady wins the race.

I am going to do WW at home starting Saturday. I will be doing the flex plan. I had a lot of success last year when I did it. My husband and sister and kids are big supporters, but if I see that I am not doing well, I will join my local center. I just shelled out tons of money to another plan, so I am going to do at least that many weeks in WW. It makes sense in my world...btw the sky is purple with pink polka dots today! :lol:

I am glad to get to "meet" you all.

11-10-2005, 06:55 PM
hi tiff!
i know isnt it aweful how they use contracts? its disgraceful. i like ww cuz you get support and if someone needs added accountability, one can purchase 10 weeks but its still not burning a hole in the purse!@ lol
im on ww im on core. in fact, im off to my thursday group in a few. good luck! if you have any ?'s, holler im an old hat at this.

do you have updated materials? if not, you may wanna just join for a week.

Jen- your hair looks great!

Andrea- I was on the winning points plan last October. What is the new plan and updated material?

11-11-2005, 11:25 AM
tgif ladies!!
hi tiff! hows it goin?
yeah the points system is different now. its not winning points its flex points which basically means that instead of a daily range you get 1 daily number (usually the number is simply subtracting 2 points from the high end of the range.) then, you get an additional 35 points to spend weekly along with activity points.

big shouts to wendy, court, jenn, and kell!!!!! hi guys!!!!!:) ready for the weekend? (((( ))))

Godd Morning!!!

I start over on WW today. I am excited, yet nervous. I am glad that I found this support group.

OK, so how does this work? My WI this morning was 192.4, so I have gained a little in this past week. Also, my T.O.M. started this morning; maybe some of that is water weight. Oh well.

Talk to ya'll later.

Well, I think I will try to finish this thread today and start up fresh on Monday!!!! How is everyone doing today? I just did a weigh in and found out I am still at 144lbs.I think its because of TOM. Thats fine with me,water retention will do that!So, I am on week 2 of my exercise tapes that I had to start all over after my fast,I wont be doing a fast again,no results from the first one!Hope you are all well!I'll be back on this thread tonight,catch up to you then!
