Hi girls, how are we all doing today?
Looks like I'm turning into the official thread starter! Sorry for the length of this post - I got carried away!!
Lolly - I had trouble voting for a while too in the polls. For some reason it looked like I hadn't voted, but when I refreshed the screen I had. Maybe that'll work for you?
Kim - fingers crossed for you. I'm sure it'll be fine, but I'm sending good luck vibes from across the pond. Just focus on how relieved you're going to feel on Saturday.
Belle - how did it go last night? Did you sort that boy of yours out? Details please.
Kierie - so, you're wearing your Claddagh ring the other way huh? What hand is it on? From what I remember, if you wear it with heart pointing out on ring finger on right hand it means you are single, same finger but with heart pointing in then you are attached. If you wear it on the ring finger on the left hand with heart pointing out you are engaged and same finger but heart pointing in you are married. For those who don't know, a Claddagh is an Irish ring in the form of two hands clasping a heart, usually given as a token of love.
We want to know ALL about your "friend".... Hooray on getting to 190! When do you reckon you're starting at UCD? I'll have to come over to Dublin to meet you! (And stop by my exBF's place and get a T-shirt back!).
Trish - thanks for all the advice on living with BF. He's already well aware of my faults (I'm quite anal - I like things to be tidy and in their place). But I'm aware of these things too so I try to be more tolerant and not get stressed about dishes not being done. I guess we'll see how it goes and hopefully not have to make too many big compromises! Oooh - there's a programme on here in the UK called The Real Birth Show. It's a shame you can't watch it. Last night two of the women on it had had premature births where the babies didn't survive and were pregnant again. This time round, one delivered prematurely again and the other managed to hold on (thanks to a stitch in her cervix!) till 38 weeks. Both babies are healthy and doing well. It's quite emotional, oh, and hideously graphic (you see the births).
Stacey - how's your tooth doing? Don't you still have to get something done to it?
Sarah - do you reckon you and DH will be trying for a baby soon? BF and I are discussing getting a kitten (I know it's not quite the same!) when we live together. I don't want to get one till after I'm finished my weather-girl training cos otherwise he'll get to spend more time with it!
Rina - I find it difficult to eat very fatty/greasy foods these days (and I think there are others with the same problem). It might be that your body just can't take them anymore, and you should use it as motivation to stick to healthy foods from now on. Of course, you could go ask the Taco stall for a refund... :devil:
TOM=time of the month, DH=dear husband, BF=boyfriend, hochmagandy=sex (it's a Scottish word which actually means sex for recreation not procreation between an unmarried couple!), WI=weigh in. Any more you want explained? You've lost me on the LMAO though...??
Jen - can you change the settings on your IM so that your screen doesn't flash?
Hey Shalyne - good to see you. How's your Mom doing now?
Roll Call: Brenda, Ali, Kay, Tonya, Emily, Janet, Julie, Casey, Steph, Becky, Lisa, Heather, Suzanne, OtherJen, Lola, Lori, Annie, Faith, Cheryl, Kirsten, KT, Kristen, Angie, Penny, Hunter and April Marie. Where are you guys? Come out and post! All those that have fallen off the WW wagon are cordially invited to step back on and get shifting those pounds. Anyone I missed out of the list, that includes you too! ;)
Right, I better do some work. I might go officially weigh in today (once you get to your goal weight, you have to weigh in 6 times a year to keep "Gold membership"), so wish me luck,
Love Kirsty

Good job on the Roll Call Kirsty... I haven't seen some of those people in ages!!

I didn't get to walk Sadie again this morning because it is still raining... booo hooo. I did walk her around the block last night tho!

OH and I got my hair cut last night. I went in with all intentions to let it grow out.... Now it it chopped into a bob. My hubby's jaw dropped when he saw me. I can do so many different styles with it tho! It should be fun!!! Oh and I have been at work for 15 minutes and no one has noticed yet!!!

Other than that... same old with me. I will be back later for more!!

08-16-2001, 10:41 AM
Now that I've been roll called.... I'd better come out and play!

Things here are good. My WW classes are going well EXCEPT we've had a run of bad luck with 2 (count 'em) dodgy scales one after another. It's very difficult having a meeting when the members don't trust the scales!! So I've gotten a new one that 100% accurate, and hopefully this will mark a more tranquil time at the scale.

I'm also dealing with another common post WW issue... I have to have my gallbladder out. Anyone with any experience in this regard? Let me know!

Have a good day!


08-16-2001, 10:54 AM
Ok, so I made lifetime last night! Whooo hoooo! I also was approached about being a leader and receptionist. I think I'll start receptionist training soon and then I'm off to leader school (three Saturdays). I am so excited and I want to thank all of you for your support. This board is the way I made it to lifetime.

Sorry I'm being a bit sappy...I just want ya'll to know :)

Lola ~ How are your meetings going? Was leader training difficult? I need to know the scoop! As far as the gall bladder thing, I have stones in mine, but that was pre WW. I haven't had any problems since I started WW. I hear the removal surgery is really easy and you recover fast. The pain of the attacks is aweful, though. If my attacks come back I'll have to get mine out. Which brings me to...

Rena ~ Hi there! Sorry the food made you so sick. I have had the same problems with restaurants my entire life. The only time I never got sick from a restaurant was the one I worked at. It was incredibly clean and they cooked and handled the food really well. Our boss was a "hard a**" so the restaurant was run perfectly. At most restaurants you never know how clean the kitchen is and how the food is handled. Something as simple as a little detergent residue on the plates can make you really ill. Also, old oil for frying can also give your body trouble. This is why me and my DH cook all the time. I haven't been sick in a long time. I hope you feel better!

Jen ~ The hair sounds so cute! I tried growing mine out and it looked terrible, so now its just at my shoulders and flips up on the ends. I love short hair!

Kirsty ~ Lucky you! I have to weigh in every month to maintain lifetime membership. Good luck!

Hi everyone else! Talk to ya'll soon :)

08-16-2001, 11:00 AM
Yippeee! How cool for you!
I can't post right now, have to get busy, but I just wanted to say
I voted for Dr. Pepper. I am a fanatic!!! But, I do like Diet Coke.
Bye for now!

08-16-2001, 11:09 AM
OK-I have been MIA, I admit it! But I am back-I was on vacation, home doing wedidng stuff...then DF and I went to Niagara Falls-we stayed in a B and B in a quaint town called Niagara-on-the -lake-it was really fun. Then I got back and started my new job-my first job as a real, full fledged doc! So far, so good-everyone has been really nice about orienting me and stuff...
In terms of WW, I have been off the wagon a little bit, so to speak....but I will weigh in today, so wish me luck!!! The good news is, there is a Bally's about 2 minutes down the road from the new job, and I have a lifetime membership there, so I can go to the gym on the way home! Whoo hoo!!!
I have been lurking occasionally....Kay, kierie and Jen, congrats on the losses!!! that's awesome! Belle {{{ Hugs}}}-hang in there-be strong! Don't let hime treat you that way!
Bye for now!!!
oh-I voted Diet coke! I am an addict-I am convinced I am going to die of whatever cancer Nutrasweet causes!!!

08-16-2001, 11:33 AM

Hello All. I have also voted for Dr. Pepper but I have not had one in a long time. Oh well, something to look forward to in January.

Kieri: That is great about your boy. My hubby also has a little tummy and is buffin other ways. I love it!!!! My hubby is very cute (as I am sure your boy is too).

Good to see so many people out playing. However, I have ot run as I have a dr. appt.

Talk with you all this afternoon.


08-16-2001, 12:35 PM
Hey all.... for diet I choose diet Dr. Pepper... but for regular... it's coke! I love COKE!!! And I still drink full strength soda and still lose weight. I just don't do it everyday!!

KO... what pond does he live across?? If it's the big one, are you close to him when you move??? GO GET 'EM!

Oh and my hubby has a little belly, not very big. But he is wide the shoulders and has big arms. He is a strong man... he can lift me even at my heaviest! As I lose weight he throws me.... it can be very romantic when your guy can swoop you up in his arms... I love it!

Lori... yah on being a real doc now!!!

Kay... AWESOME! Let me know how long training is, I am curious what you have to go through!!

Lola... I honestly always weigh better on 1 scale and not the other. I hate it when the bad scale is the only one they are weighing on!

OK.. back to work!

Congrats Kay!!!!!! That's awesome, I am glad to see the list of Lifetinmers growing (we all can do this!!).

Lola: Sorry to hear about needing an operation, I have heard that it can be one of the side effects of weight loss, though I don't know where I read that.

Belle: Just always remember to be true to yourself.

Take Care!


BTW I am now officially 100lbs lighter than when I joined WW!!!!

Howdy Again!

Lori: Congrats on being an MD!!!

Hi to everyone else, I hope all is going well!


08-16-2001, 02:32 PM
Kirsty: I still have to get a permanent crown on my tooth. It's just a temp right now.
Kay: MORE CONGRATULATIONS!!! I think that's just awesome!
Lori: Welcome back! My BIL (brother in law) started medical school Monday. His "white coat" ceremony was SUnday. Pretty impressive, I must say. Congrats on your job, doctor. :)
Ali: I am SOOOO impressed with your weight loss! You ROCK!
Rina: Welcome and I, too, get greasy tummy. yucky!
Well, my salad is getting cold...hahaha it's already cold. :) But
I'd better get back to work, though.
We're looking for a dog for real now. We talked about it before the wedding, but now we're serious.
Talk to you soon!

Hi ya'll!

I can never seem to get here during the day. Too much work! Then if I post late it seems like my loney little message never gets read. :(

Anyhoo... weigh-in today was down 1/2 pound. Not much, but better than nothing. At this rate it will take me.... oh never mind, let's not go there!

Kiere: sounds like you had a blast! Hope you can meet up with your friend soon.

Lori: congrats on your new job!!! Very happy for you. Niagra is beautiful. I'd love to go back someday soon.

Kay: Congrats on lifetime!!! woohooo for you!!

Better run. Still tons of work to do. Actually came on-line to do some work related research but somehow my fingers took me here. :s:

08-16-2001, 05:51 PM
Janet-I read your post! I have to come clean you guys-up 2 lbs!:(
but i will keep the sig the same and carry on! let's hope some of it is muscle from pumping iron lately...anyhow-for not going to WI for five weeks it's not horrible....

Hello all. Back from the Dr. today. All looks ok...but I have gained a lot of weight. Dr has not said anything but I know I need to watch it a little better.

Lori: congrats on the new job, Dr. Also, good job going to weigh in. You will be down in no time.

Janet: Great job on weigh in!!!!!

Stacey: what kind of dog are you looking for? I love my dog sooo much.

Ok, hello to eveyone else but I have to get going.

Talk with you all tomorrow.


08-16-2001, 06:56 PM
I'm all fired up now and going home. This JERK that is the building manager just got reamed by the tenant next door... so he came and decided to feel better and ream me out. I gave him a huge hunk of my mind and he walked off. He has this ego that makes him think he can boss me around (I pay the bills here) and if my rent is late because he doesn't get on the ball and fix the things he is supposed to... then it's not my fault. OOOOHHH... he is a jerk. The other managers were so happy I did it. I am not afraid to speak my mind... it is a bad thing I have, but sometimes it comes in handy!!! Especially in management!

Hi all!

Last to report in again. I know how you feel Jane cuz that's how I feel. I'll have to wait until tomorrow for any replies. Oh well. I can wait. Although I don't think I'll be checking in tomorrow because we're going camping :) Yay! Expcept I had better be feeling 100% by then. Still feeling the effects of yesterdays taco fiasco :( I feel fine and then I eat something and its horrible again. One of my co-workers was sick from the same place last week! We are going to both go in and complain because that's ridiculous! Eating at home is so much safer! lol

Kirsty! You are amazing to keep track of everyone's news. There seem to be so many people here and a lot happens in one day. Thanks so much for helping with the abbreviations. I love hochmagandy! I mean the word! (or do I?) :lol: LMAO mean laugh my @ss off. If you're fond of swearing you can put LMFAO which is the same but with F-ing in it. Nice I know -lol What does BBL mean? I saw in someone's post here today somewhere...

Jen, good work on dealing with a grumpy manager :) You go girl-show him your nasty side :lol: Hopefully your evening is much more relaxing

Ali that is so amazing that you are officially 100lbs lighter! WTG! (way to go) That is sooo awesome! I'm going to use that as motivation :)

Trish good to hear everything went ok at your doc's.

Kay congrats on your acheivement :D

Stacey, thanks for the welcome! Everyone here is super friendly! I love it. That's so nice you're getting a dog. We're hoping to get one after we're married next year too. Have you thought of any cool names yet? One of my prof's, who is a chiropractor, named his dog Ramus, which is part of the Jaw bone! I thought that was so awesome! I always think if we get a dog I'm going to name him after a cool muscle because I'm a massage therapist and no one else would get it, except my MT buds though.

Kieri, that's so exciting about you and your friend! it seems like when friendships turn into love they always last for a lifetime :) BTW, I love your name!

Lori, nice to meet you. Congrats Doc! Are the Niagra Falls as awe-inspiring as everyone says they are? I would love to go there even though it always sounds so corny because its where so many people go for their honeymoon.

Lola, sorry to hear you have to get your gallbladder out. A couple of my patients have had theirs out and they have to follow really stict diets. But I think that they had waited way to long to deal with the problem and that they had some damage to their livers too. Not sure exactly. Hopefully it won't be like that for you though. Good luck.

So I voted for Pepsi but I was really torn because I do love Dr. Pepper too. I didn't know how to choose so I went and looked in our box where we keep our empties until we take them for recycling and there were way more Pepsi than Dr. Pepper. Of course I hardly ever drink pop. If I do though it has to be regular-the diet kinds always taste like they have dishsoap in them-yucky! If I drink anything besides water its almost always MinuteMaid Grapefruit Juice-I swear I have an addiction to it. Although sometimes I think that I have an addiction to water. I'll tell you all about it later. For now I'm going to run. If I don't have a chance to pop in here tomorrow before we leave, everyone have a great weekend :) BTW thanks so much for making me feel at home here!

Pre-op appt. took 3 hours today! Had to go to two different places, only no one told me. So I showed up at the second place, was told I had to see my doctor first, so I arrived at her office late of course and waited an hour to be seen. Then I went back to the other place have blood tests and have a nurse ask questions and it took forever. I was very frustrated, only to finally get to the office and have to go to a fatal car accident. It has been a day, and I'm going to be late for a pot-luck dinner I was invited to!


Janet R
08-16-2001, 09:06 PM
Rina.. massage therapist?? Oooh, could I use you!! I ache everyday, mostly in my upper back. Of course, that's part arthritis, but mostly muscle ache I think. I hope you are feeling 100% by tomorrow and have a good time camping!

Kim: I'm sorry you had such a hassle with your pre-op. Bad enough you have to go through it, add hassle to it and it's just not fair. Hugs.

Jen: I have a big mouth too. Good for you for standing up for yourself.

Lori: for 5 weeks 2 pounds isn't too bad! Hopefully you are motivated now and you'll be fine.

Well, I used up all my points (plus) on 4 oreos when I got home... I was out of points but I made myself a 3 point dinner anyway (one of my favorite "saves".) You know, I *finally* got on my treadmill this evening. Just 15 minutes, but I was proud for finally doing something. Sadly, according to the calorie read-out, I only burned off 1 1/2 oreos. ;)

Ok, time to spend some time with the DH (dear husband). Oh and Rina, BBL means "be back later."
