Support Groups - Anyone have MSN messenger??
01-02-2006, 11:37 AM
A little about myself. My name is Paula I am 30, married, and I have two children Hunter 4, and Jada 2. I do dog rescue and I love it. I currently have 4 dogs of my own. 1 Newfoundland, 1 St. Bernard, 1 German Shepard, And 1 Cocker spanial/Dashund mix. I have one rescue dog looking for a home that is some sort of collie/lab mix I think. I also have 3 cats, a lizard, and fish. We are animal lovers.
I love to read, cross stitch, knit, and take pictures. I also like to play around with web sites. I made one for our family that is doing our own version of the biggest loser. I need to lose about 77 pounds or so. And I really need help to keep on track!!! I gained all my weight with the two pregnancys and I haven't gained or lost more than 10 pounds since two months after my daughter was born. So I went to my doctor to get my thryoid checked and I got the Billy Blanks Boot Camp DVD's so I am off to a good start. Anyway....
I am looking for a buddy that I can have on my MSN Messenger. I don't always get on the forum site so it would be better to have some people that I would see as soon as I was online that I would have accountablity too. Also If anyone ever needed someone to actually talk to it would be great. Please let me know. My MSN messenger is edited.That is also my e-mail address edited I hope to hear from some fellow weight loss people looking to seriously get done to who you want to be!!! Sorry this is soooo long but I am determined to do it this time!!!!:carrot:

Please do NOT post your email addresses. You are leaving yourselves open to Spambot as this is a public Forum.
01-02-2006, 12:45 PM
Thanks for the warm welcome!! I amlooking forward to getting to know all of you!!!
01-02-2006, 12:50 PM
Absolutely, Ruth. Everyone that posted their email addresses here will get spam because of automated spambots that constantly scan websites and forums looking for email addresses.
Plus, and I hate to say this because the vast majority of people that come here are honest and wonderful people, but there are still a lot of perverts on the web that visit forums like ours looking for trouble. You'll probably get contact requests on MSN from people saying they are 3fc members, but aren't. Then you might get porn, viruses, and who knows what else.
Gee, aren't I chipper today :p But it had to be said. I would suggest that you all click the edit button on your posts to remove your email, then use the PM feature to send your MSN info to each other. But it's up to you :)
01-02-2006, 12:58 PM
I already did delete it. Dang, I hate that we have to even worry about that. :mad: Also hate that it didn't even occur to me. :o Good thing we have moderators looking out for us!! :thanks:

beatlesfan...where did u get your flowers from?? That is soooo cute!!!
If you click on the "more" icon on the smilies they are on the big page, but you can shortcut it by typing : flow1 : only put the colons right next to the flow1. :D
01-02-2006, 01:33 PM
Hey guys can you add me? Just click the little icon under my name. Thanks!
Just to let everyone know, those icons are not visible to lurkers or spambots, only registered and logged in members can see them. Plus, only members can view your profile page, which also holds your MSN info. It's a little safer :)
Have fun, and good luck with your support system :D
01-02-2006, 02:16 PM
Good, I didn't know that. So that's the way to go then, add addresses in the profile and only registered users can see and access them. Makes sense...thanks again for all the help!!
01-02-2006, 08:31 PM
Wow, guess i didnt realize that one...thanx alot
01-02-2006, 09:10 PM
Me too! Me too!
01-02-2006, 09:18 PM
I hope you all don't mind I started adding you before posting on here. I am new to the forums ( just joined today) I need some support! You are all welcome to add me if you would like. Thanks!
01-03-2006, 05:21 PM
:welcome: Everyone. Sorry I haven't been online My phone line died. I am sorry about the e-mail thing. I wasn't even thinking!!!!!
Well I did my Billy Blanks Boot Camp workout for........55 MINUTES!!! :encore: and I can still walk. SO we have a great group of people here!!! I am still trying to find someone close enought to me to do workouts with but I will probley have to join a gym. We will see. If you'd like a list of people in our group if you didn't get it just PM me. Oh just a though what is everyones weekly goals??? My goal of this week is to drink more water!!! Weight in for me is on Friday. So I am looking forward to it.Anyway Keep up the good work and work out good!!!LOL
01-05-2006, 01:43 PM
I just found this thread last night when it was late. I was wondering if it is too late to say add me to the list. I have MSN and it would be great to chat with some of you on a daily basis. Just to check in and see how the day went or just to vent and to get some helpful advice of what works for you.
Anyone that wants to add me that is ok with me. Keep up the good work ladies.
slimmer mama someday
01-05-2006, 08:32 PM

I do have msn messenger. I live in Ohio. Anyways I have to get my daughters outta the bath tub, hope to hear from ya soon. Good Luck!!!
01-05-2006, 08:35 PM
Please feel free to add me to your MSN but don't feel hurt if I ask you who you are....
01-05-2006, 09:36 PM
:Welcome: Annie Fannie - I couldn't get to your MSN messenger. Please PM me with your login name!! You and I have the same amount of weight to lose. I am at 202 when I started. Lets see how we do!!!
Slimmer Mama - "a chihuahua a cat and 3 hamsters." I think the combined weight is the weight of my one dogs ear!!LOL. Love to see ya here!! I added you to my messenger so don't be surprised if I pop up just to ask what ya ate today...
Heva - How the heck are ya??? Aparently pretty good 13 pounds down. Great job!!! Keep up the great work!! I think this is the biggest site to find losers!! LOL.
Lucky duck - How are you doing?? Everyone needs help and support let us know how you are doing!!!
Donna,baby girl, Ellie, Beatles Fan, Wanda, Losing it - HOw is everyone doing??? Keep up updated.
I have been looking for something easy, quick, with great taste to make for breakfast, lunch, and Dinner. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know. I did try that Quaker Oatmeal Weight Control.(Cinnamon) Now I usually hate instant oatmeal, okay I don't like oatmeat unless it is disquised as a no-bake cookie. But I did like the taste of this. It has 160 Cal. & 3g of fat, 1g of sugar. Something to try if you like oatmeal.
Okay so my good news is I went to the doctor yesterday and all my blood work came back great. Of course they didn't run the thryoid test like they were supposed to so I had to give more blood but all the rest is great!!! So in two weeks I should know how that is. I didn't get to do my exercise yesterday so I did it today!! 55 min of Billy Blanks... Thank you very much. Now the bad news. I had subway for dinner. Now that isn't bad the bad is I had a Diet Coke...... I have been trying sooo hard not to have pop. Actually I haven't had one since Christmas. I went through detox with the headaches and all that. But My husband had one and bought one for work.... I took the one for work. I didn't drink all 20oz so that is something. Anyway sorry this is soooo long but I am trying. And writing everything down helps!! So keep up the good work!!
01-06-2006, 11:38 PM
HEY GUYS!!!...omg, this week has been HECTIC!!! On wed, it was my 3 year wedding anniversary, then work, work, work!!! I havent started my diet yet, because it doesnt start until January 14. I'm doing the National Body Challenge sponsored by Discovery Health Channel. Its great!!! They give you lil video's of exercises to do everyday,and what diet plan you should be on...I think this is really going to work out for me...along with the support of your guys!!!. I kinda started a "pre" diet state. Started to cut out most of my sweets and sugars. But.. I find it hard on really stressful days(like today) I wanted some ice cream soooooooo bad. But what do you know, the store I went into didnt have the brand that I liked. So...I took that as a sign. I did have a handfull of gummie bears though!!! How's everyone else doing??/
01-07-2006, 06:55 AM
Hi, I am new to this forum, can I add you to my MSN or do you want to add me.
01-07-2006, 12:00 PM
Hello everyone, hope you don't mind if I join. I am a 24 yr old stay at home mom of two girls 4 and 2. Although I am going to be looking for a job to pay for school, as I am registered for 3 online classes this spring.:carrot: I have 2 dogs, Bailey is my 9 month old golden retriever and Jake is my 6 month old Poodle/Rat Terrier cross. Both of them have way too much energy, but are lots of fun.
Taebo is also my workout of choice, and I throw in some light weights on the ball.
My msn info is in my profile, hope to hear from everyone soon.
Great work all and good luck with continued success.
01-07-2006, 02:37 PM
I went through and added a bunch of you to my contact list. Just so you know who is writing. I haven't used MSN messanger before but will give it a try.
01-07-2006, 05:22 PM
Hello everyone....I just discovered 3FC just this morning. Just reading the replies here gets me excited and motivated to loose 100+ . Let's just do it.... if we believe in us ...we can make 2006 the best so far (smile)
01-07-2006, 07:51 PM
I have added those of you I could to my MSN and welcome anyone to add me via my profile. I want to put as much support in place as I can. I find it easier to be honest about how I am feeling online. In person I am all about what I call happyface talk. "Everything is good... really!" lol
01-07-2006, 07:57 PM
hey everyone.......Fostermommmaaaaaaaa talked me into commming here lol ALL her FALLT !

01-08-2006, 01:43 PM
Hey Jasmin No fair blaming me... LOL Great to hear about sooo many new people wanting to lose!!!! MSN Is sooo great I can bother you as soon as you get online!!! I didn't work out yesterday to Billy Blanks. I did Dog wrestling. If anyone out there has a Giant Breed dog you know what I am talking about. For those of you that don't.... just a picture. think aobut your tub.... Picture a dog that takes up that whole tub and loves water.... Now picture me 5'6" 202lb wrestling my 120 pound dog to stand up to be washed not laying down in the tub he barely fits in. Reaching around and under to soap up. OH yeah everytime I get more soap he lays down. Then to get him not to jump out when I try to turn him to reach the water hose.... Then to try to blow him dry so that I don't have a pond in my living room. I think I burned like 1000 CAl. HA HA HA anyway it took too long and I am doing my workout when the kids go to bed... SO I will let you know how that goes.
01-08-2006, 03:33 PM
wow, i was thinking about getting a great dane this spring...you think that would qualify for dog wrestling??..lol, well I hope u can keep up with Billy...6 more days to go until I start my diet!!! toodles.
01-08-2006, 04:52 PM

01-08-2006, 09:31 PM
A Great Dane is a little skinner. Easy to get around in the tub. My biggest problem is Koda likes to lie down and relax in the tub. He thinks it is his own spa!!! HA HA

I use both MSN and Yahoo. I just added you. You can add me. My ID is oreonibbles for both.
01-10-2006, 11:39 PM
Welcome all the new people!!! We should try to find a time we all can be on and do a chat room with MSN messenger. lets try to find some times. Like on day a week. Anytime after 4:00 is best for me. My husband is here to help with the kids so I won't be interupted. Lets pick a day and time and I can invite everyone in. Then we can all chat. The recipes can be anything either low fat OR no carbs. Really just anything healthy that we can all try. I am proud to report I am still working out and I have been eating good. I did slip a little. I was playing a computer game and had a couple animal crackers. (I thought a couple.) I was too busy playing that I must of had like 30. So I did a little extra workout that day. They were good though!!!! ;)
01-11-2006, 09:48 PM
i'm good anytime after 7...how about like friday???
01-13-2006, 06:39 PM
I can't do it this Friday but how about 7:30 on Saturday or Monday?? Is that good for everyone?? If it is let me know and I will invite you into the group chat... I will be online on both days at that time....
01-19-2006, 10:00 PM
yooowhooo....where is everybody, how's everyone doing???
