Good Morning - Wow!!!!! NOONE has posted since Monday???!!!!!! Geeeeez, come on girls, we're slacking off here. Is it because you're all busy or because you didn't do well OP. If it's the latter....hey! that's what we're here for....if you've been busy.......well Ok.....I'll forgive you. :D
I HAVE NOT been good or on program for two days now. I actually woke up around 2am and had about 8 Chips Ahoy with a large!!! glass of milk and DIDN'T BRUSH MY TEETH before I went back to bed. EEEEeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwww. What is WRONG with me??? and why do I do this to myself when I know darn well that I'm going to feel like "Doo-doo" in the morning, feel guilty as well and be bloated and uncomfortable. I just don't get it. I was doing so well too. :?:
Ok....today's another day. I have to be in court with a friend of mine regarding her divorce and child support....after that I'm free for the day so I'm going to TRY and do alot of "little things" that I've let go. Maybe a swim or walk later today for my exercise. It's been very hot here until yesterday when we got some rain and a nice breeze to cool things off FINALLY!
I STILL don't have my digital camera back yet! I'm missing it big time. Yep, I'm one of THOSE people who takes pictures just about every day of everything. So.......here's wishing you all a great day and hoping you stay op and drink all your water.

I am totally new to your thread. I have been lurking for a while and feel like I know some of you, but haven't formally introduced myself. I am another one of those addicted horse people. Ally, you and I have talked on other threads.
This is not related to weight, but I really would like some advice from the horse people out there. So, if you bear with me I would like to ask for opinions. My twin daughters and I have been looking at a registered paint mare named Silver Dakota. She is 15 hands, 8 years old, (very beautiful) has wonderful ground manners and is an extremely good price. According to her owner, she has a bucking problem and supposedly it has only happened a couple of times, although we did see her buck a little while she was being lunged in the round pen with a saddle on her. She is being offered at a lower price because the lady who is selling her (she seems like a very nice person) feels she could use professional training to stop this behavior problem. She emphasized a couple of time that it has only happened twice in the year that she has owned her and the reason she is selling her is her son wants a more western horse that he can show in the top rated shows. Dakota doesn't really hold her head correctly for a Western horse especially for showing. She has very nice English gaits and needs a little work on collection and tucking her head (she puts it way up to the sky). When we rode her she was good, a little nervous, but she responded well. Her owner said when worked she will collect and stay on the bit.
My instructor and our barn owner has given me quite a few things to think about. One of them is he thinks the girls might outgrow her and be too big for her. They are 12 almost 13 and at the moment are 5 feet and 5 feet 2 inches tall, both bean poles (I would love to be their size:lol: ) They also want to jump and he feels a larger horse may be better for that. He is also concerned about the bucking, he said sometimes it is hard to get them to stop if it is a chronic problem. He thinks she is a fantastic price, but thinks that there may be a severe problem if she is so well priced. The girls fell in love with her. She has an extremely friendly personality and they are frantically trying to talk me into buying her. If we don't buy her, we will have to wait until probably spring to find another horse unless we find another fantastic price.
Has anyone been through the looking stage lately? PJ I read that you just bought a horse recently.
Thanks so much for your patience,

Hi HorseCrazy - You're going to laugh......that's exactly what my bumper sticker on my van says...."Horse Crazy".....:lol:
My email is email@example.com
I think it would be best if we talk more about it on email rather than here. I'd be more than happy to talk with you about your interest in the paint. I must say though, I STONGLY agree with your instructor...if it's THAT good of a price....there's a good reason for it and "good things come to those who wait". I also agree with it being too small for your girls. My horse is just under 16 hands and she's just right for my daughter who is 5'3" tall. She's 13 and also a "beanpole". <grin>
Please email me or if you have IM .....my name is resler41
Jennylou - 1.8 pds. is a GOOD loss. Are you kidding? Geeeez, I average a pound a week. You're right on track. Don't weigh in more than once a week and DON'T weigh yourself at home. (my personal opinion).......I always tend to go over a bit when I see the scale go down at home. Anyway, again......you've done very well this weel. Give yourself a pat on the back and keep "doin what you're doin".
Hugs to all you missing Owls,

Hey Beth! I just added a new post over on that Pet Support thread. I didn't want to see it get kicked off the page from non-activity. It's fun talkin' horse, ain't it? :lol:
Is this Paint the first horse you've looked at? I've never been up to the "seriously looking" phase (YET! ;) ) but from what I've heard, they say "don't fall in love with the first one you look at." (reminds me of when we were house hunting, too) If you really like and trust your trainer, I would say go with his instincts. I'm so happy with my trainer and I know that whatever she tells me would be the "voice of reason" even though I know I would want to buy them all! :lol: Sounds like he may be right re: growing too big for her. You also have to factor in you/your daughter's riding abilities. If this mare REALLY does have a problem (sounds to me like she's done it more than just 2 times if they thought about it enough to mention), do you have the experience to work with her? (I'm not trying to imply that you don't, I have no idea....just something to think about, too) If not, she may be a bit of a handful for a first horse.
I hope this helps a little! Let me know how you make out. Glad you popped in here! Come out of lurking more often, okay? ;)
Jennielou----no offense or anything, but IMO a 1.8# loss is wonderful!! How much did you expect to lose?? Especially since TOM came, -1.8 ain't nothin' to shake a stick at! Like PJ said, you are doing great, keep on doing what you are doing! Great job!
PJ---We've all had one of "those" days and I'm glad you are positive enough to take on the "tomorrow is another day" attitude. How much did you spend on a digital camera if I may ask? I was thinking about looking into getting one. Not just for reg pictures, but I'm also thinking about selling some stuff on Ebay. Hmmm, gotta talk to my sister about making the "crossover" from just BUYING to SELLING. I just won another cute pair of capris that look like blue bandana. $9 for this one, but they were cute and a size SMALLER!! I should be receiving my first pants tomorrow...those $3 ones. Yellow/white capris in a gingham print. Since they are the smaller size, I'll let y'all know how they fit!
Tip of the day: Are any of you soy milk drinkers? I only like chocolate and have been getting the White Wave "Silk", but tonight bought the Sun Soy brand. I read on the WW boards that it's creamier and my gosh it is!!!! MUCH better than the Silk....more like choc regular milk.
---I also bought the new WW "Bistro style" pizzas. I saw they have 4 cheese, BBQ chicken, grilled veggie, and pepperoni. I havent tried them yet. I usually get the Trader Joes Veggie Pizza. It's a 12 inch pizza, 12 points for the WHOLE thing if you wanted to, pretty darn good, and only $2.50. The WW ones are ?? taste (I got the BBQ chicken and the Veggie...will try tomorrow) looks like about 6-8 inches and 8 points....oh! and $3.49. Well, something new to try until I go to TJ's this weekend. I'll let you all know how they are. I read on a board (Dotti's?--I only lurk there) that they are trying to rip off the popularity of a pizza brand called Heaven's Bistro. WW's who have access to them LOVE them. I've never had. I hear it's mostly a West coast thing, but are making their way East.
----Also (sheesh! There's more? :lol: ) saw in the newest issue of WW mag that WW has a Skinny Cow knock off, too. Same packaging and everything!! Boy, they must hate it that WW members LOVE products that aren't theirs so they copy it! Heck, if it tastes good and is CHEAPER than the Skinny Cows, I'll buy those. SC's are expensive!!
OK, that's it for now (I know, you're all sighing with relief by now, right ;) ) but WHERE THE HECK IS EVERYONE ELSE??? HMMM??? :lol:
08-23-2001, 04:36 AM
I started Physical Therapy today..........
and I'm supposed to limit my typing and since I can't type one handed like some.
I will be reading and maybe checking in with a brief but warm hello when I can! If you are lucky a picture too! :lol:
This is gonna be a long road, not just my elbow that has the problems but my
neck, shoulder blade, shoulder and rib cage all on my left side. He is doing work
on all areas to retsore range of motion I have lost(didn't even know), and
promote healing. Seems the elbow takes the brunt of things when the rest is out
of sinc! I knew I had pain on my whole left side, but was just living with it! I can't
even go to my water class cause the movement in the water will be too much
for the arm right now! So...I went to the craft mall after therapy to cheer me up
and get some exercise in and found some good deals too! Bought Dh some
cookies and they looked so good I had to have one and almost two.. but put
them in the freezer instead! ( They were very thin choc. chip cookies with a
cream filling!) YUMMMMMMY
Also I'm supposed to use ice and not heat, boy is my doc stupid! Ice did not feel good to me so I asked and he said heat specifically!
08-23-2001, 08:00 AM
Candice - You're beginning to sound like me!. Sorry you're having so much pain. I really do know from where you speak and I sympathize with you. I hope you feel better as the day goes by ........ I'm sending "good vibes" your way.;)
Ally - So HORSECRAZYS name is Beth. Ok. Ill be able to email her now on a first name basis. heh-heh.....she doesn't sound like a beginner though. I'd say she pretty much "knows her stuff" ....so I'll let ya know. Don't you just LOVE talking "horse" ??????!!!!!! :D
I'm sitting here, having my coffee and thinking of having something for breakfast. I'm NOT really a breakfast person except for coffee and maybe some toast once in a while and I think I'm going to go back to my banana, oj and skim milk ..... milkshakes. They were so filling and gave me a real boost. I was FAIR op yesterday. Had a hotdog for dinner and some flavored instant oatmeal as a late night snack. All in all, I stayed within the HIGH range of my points but WAS still within my range. I'm slacking on the exercise lately though because I'm really hurting (like Candice). It really puts your life on hold. Pain is a pain in the A** !!!!!!!!! LITERALLY!!!!!! I can't ride, I can't ride my bike, blah, blah, blah.....so I go to the barn.....groom Missy the best I can and sweat my rear off and hopefully that is doing SOMETHING as per exercise.
Heres wishing you all a great day and wonderful night.
08-23-2001, 08:55 AM
morning guys how is everyone?
candace if i may ask what's wrong with your arm?
i keep reading about your shots and everything but i've never seen a post on what's wrong. anyway i hope it gets better.

08-23-2001, 09:51 AM
Hey Jennylou - Ever use the "potty pills"....????? LOL.....they're really M & M's. Every time Billy pp'd in the potty, he'd get 3. Every time he did poopies, he got FIVE!!!!!! Also taught him how to count. Just thought I'd mention it....heh-heh

08-24-2001, 12:02 AM
Anytime I've gone to more than one WW meeting in a week, they won't weigh if you've already had one recorded for the week. :?:
You're lucky to be "used to" losing that much every week. :eek: I lose about 1-1/2 per week.
08-24-2001, 12:34 AM
ally they didn't record it the girl who's the receptionist at my reg meeting is the one for the meeting i went to tonight i just wi to see if i was doing any better since tom is almost over i needed a boost :^:

1.8 loss during TOM would be GREAT boost for me!! :lol:
08-24-2001, 04:00 AM
i don't know why i let what some people say bother me
since july i've had a really hard time and been working hard to stay on track and to do really good so what if i did need a boost
that was the first time i've ever went to 2 meetings some people would be happy for a person if they got the boost they needed to keep going and be understanding it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks
maybe i took what you said in the wrong way ally but i took it the way it came across
08-24-2001, 10:49 AM
It's a little cooler today and thank God! It's been too hot to do anything during the middle of the day so everything that needs done outside is done in the early am or late afternoon.
I'm back on track with program. About time, don't you think? I'm such a butthead sometimes when it comes to really staying OP. It's so easy to put it on and sooooo hard to take it off. There IS one thing that is really getting me upset though. I've now got stretch marks down to about mid-thigh height. I CANNOT work with weights because the torn ligament in my knee (having surgery in 2 weeks) and it's really getting to me. I really prided myself in my legs too.....they always looked halfway decent ..... even when I was really, really large. I like to wear short shorts. NOT THE REAL SHORT SHORTS but just above mid thing length. The longer shorts make my legs look bigger and the shorter and looser, the better. Anyway, when I wear bike shorts, you can't see them but I like wearing the loose cotton shorts in this weather and just starting noticing the stretch marks. OOOooooooooooo. Hey, believe me.....I've got my share of those nasty things on my butt from my pregnancies and was lucky enough NOT to get any on my belly...but I DO have them around my hips....so adding my thighs has NOT made me a happy camper. Maybe if I ask my Phy. Therapist....she'll have some suggestion. Don't you just hate the soft flab you get when you lose some weight???!!!! AAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!!! VERY frustrating but still better than having to drag all the weight around that we all bust our butts to get off.
So yes, once again.......PJ is rambling on........just my way I suppose....I've always got alot to say. Hmmmmm, sometimes that's a GOOD THING and sometimes IT'S NOT. :D
I've got to get my bottom out of this chair (since my coffee is long gone) and it's already 10:42am here in Florida. Oh yes....I'm soooo looking forward to doing all those little domestic goddess things before I leave the house today. Ewwwww, wish I still had a maid. :(
I'll check in later and see if some of you who have been HIDING AND LURKING come out and play!!!!! If not....you can except a personal visit from moi tomorrow morning sharp to get your tookiss's in here. GOT THAT YOU OWLS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :s:
"See" ya all later........atleast I'd better.
08-24-2001, 10:24 PM
Interesting thread. Have never rode a horse in my life never mind taken care of one.
This looks like a great bulletin board. Lots of subjects are covered.
jennieloo, you seem a bit compulsive about your weight loss. Take it from a life time member who still goes monthly to meetings. It is best to take it slow and not get "hung" up on the scale. We all plateau from time to time and if you need to see a loss then you will have a problem when you don't. Release that scale.
08-24-2001, 11:38 PM
maybe i took what you said in the wrong way ally but i took it the way it came across
Not trying to bring you down, Jennilou, but just LOOK at how far you've come! I guess I'm just not understanding why a person who lost 1.8# would be unhappy about losing "only" that much. If it's a boost you need, I would be happy to help. That's what we are all here for, right? ;) Just didn't realize a person who lost 1.8# would need one!! Just look again at your signature at the bottom of your post!! You're doing great!!!
08-24-2001, 11:40 PM
Hey, PJ, I'm with you.....I guess we gotta drag some Owl Butts back here to the nest!!!
08-25-2001, 10:44 AM
jennilou..anyloss is a great loss, sometimes I onlylost .5 every two weeks but I stuck with it and now I'm at goal! I shoveled too much snow last winter and got an inflamation in my left elbow that will not heal. I also have Fibromyalgia like PJ. It is my whole left side that is in pain and it hurts to move my fingers or grip anything. I managed to work throught the pain and do all my gardening in this spring but I think I made it worse:mad:
Pj..I have a lot of loose skin now! EEEEWWWW is right! DH says I have nice legs though:) Your are having surgery on your knee????
Ally...good encouragement for all of us on the scale thing!
My sunset........:) :cool: :)
08-25-2001, 08:14 PM
Hey Owls, I'm not too far from the nest. I'm just busier than I know I've been in ages, with getting the classroom set up (getting there) and the disability papers complete for hubby (I HATE those people), so there is little time to post. I just wanted to say hi to everyone.
Pammy gave me an idea (a good one). I'm going to put a daily quote on my board at school. I can't use hers though because they are too advanced for my students. I'm now searching the internet for KID quotes.
Hope you all are well!
08-25-2001, 08:40 PM
I haven't had time to even turn my computer on in like 2 weeks now. My life has taken one of those crazy turns lately, you know when you don't have time to barely breathe!!:o Work has been crazy because the last 4 weeks we have had one person out each week from the office on vacation, next week will be the first week in a long time that we are all there. Ofcourse that means by the end of the week we will be all caught back up and things will get boring again, LOL! We have been going to the gym 2 or 3 times a week and ofcourse I have been going to weight watchers, I have switched to mondays. Oh yeah, I might as well spill the beans I GAINED .4 on monday I started to get upset and then I looked at my weigh in card and have lost consistently the 9 weeks before this so I can't complain. This morning we went to the gym, then grocery shopping and then took the girls to the circus, I am wiped. I still have to hem up about 6 more pair of pants for the kids school, they start Wednesday so I better get my butt in gear, the only other thing I need to buy them is new underwear.
I am still doing great OP, every now and then I cheat a bit but it seems to be working for me and I am looking forward to a loss on Monday, I should get my 25# magnet. I am oh so close to seeing those 170's and I can't wait. Well I guess that catches you all up on me. I see we have some new owls and I look forward to getting to know you all.
Hi to all the regulars, I have missed you all.
08-25-2001, 10:46 PM
Ok....I'm going to be brave and show you a picture of "THE NEW ME".....lol......AS A BLONDE....Well, foiled blonde. :D
08-26-2001, 01:36 AM
Judy...hope you Steve's papers filled and a quote for the board sounds great:) I know how busy a teacher can be and that is too busy for me!
PJ..I like you as a blonde, younger looking too! (Not that you looked old to begin with);)
Bren..you are doing so good! My walking and yard work has been down due to fatigue and then don't burn anything so my metabo just shuts down. I am trying to maintain and it is harder than losing! I haven't even upped my points yet, just eating at my maxium for awhile and I think I might be up..just feels like it!
Crappola..my arm is hurting so gotta go!
Here is a cutie:) My sis's grandaughter's 1rst Birthday!:smug:
08-26-2001, 07:34 AM
Ok....now I'm REALLY GETTING BRAVE. :eek:
Here's me this past July, at my new weight but before I changed my hair color. In the past, you've all said I was wearing baggy shirts and you couldn't really see my body. WELL!!!!!! In THIS picture, I'm holding the shirt tight with my right hand so you can see the big hips that are still there but the waist that is FINALLY starting to come back. Better than the rolls that used to be there.
I did well on program yesterday but need to get more fruit and veggies in. I drink V-8 and that helps but there's nothing like FRESH and FIBER.
Brenda - Way to go on your losses!!!!! I hadn't realized you lost that much already. Nice job girlfriend.
Candice - I LOVE b'day cake on the face pictures. She's a cutie-pa-tootie!;)
To my Judygal - Try and take care of yourself. I know it's easier said than done but I can tell already that you're stressed. Slow down and take it easy whenever you can. That's your Dr. Pammys orders!!!!!!!! Got it? :D Love ya!!!
That's it for me this morning. I'll catch you all on the "fly" later on.
08-27-2001, 05:00 AM
Hi everyone! This is my first time to use a chat room, moreless a WW group. So please be patient with me as I learn how to make this all happen!
I've been reading the messages here and wondered if someone could give me some feedback on a problem I've been having. I started WW 13 weeks ago. I've had some success, but of course, never as much as I'd like. Anyhow, because I weigh more than most folks, they need to add an extra weight onto the scale in order for me to weigh properly. My problem is that out of the first 12 weeks, 1/4 of them I was unable to weigh because they didn't have the extra weight available. Now, it takes alot for me to first of all get to these meetings; most places have lousy parking and I can't walk real far without having problems. Then to stand in the long lines for sometimes more than 30 minutes, I'm pretty wiped out by the time I get up to my turn to pay and weigh. So to be disappointed AGAIN and not be able to weigh has been a real disheartening problem for me. I've called the head office (they refunded my money for 2 of the weeks--big deal), but I'm embarrassed about the whole thing.
Am I wrong to believe that WW sbould be prepared with the proper equipment to weight everyone?
Why should I keep coming to meetings to be either turned away without being weighed, or embarassed and distraught just to find out whether they can weigh me. This is a very difficult thing for me and I'm trying, but I wish they had a better solution.
I did find one place here that has a digital scale and that has helped, but someone told me they don't always have the digital scale there.
:( Any ideas??
Thanks for listening. Oh yeah, I have lost 20 pounds so far, but I have so far to go, I'm getting very discouraged.
08-27-2001, 08:48 AM
Hi Cal - And Welcome to the NIGHT OWLS. Personally???
I like the digital scales, much more accurate but as for as everything else goes? I'm ready to write into WW headquarters .....quoting your post because they should be ashamed of themselves.
I've got to get to a Dr's appt. but I'll be back to post more about this. Hang in there Cal.
08-27-2001, 02:27 PM
Ok I'm shaking the nest to get all these sleeping beauties up and posting!!
Where the heck is everyone? This is gonna be quick because I am at work trying to wrap things up so I can go home!
Well I am still totally motivated....I lost 3 more lbs...for a total of 11 1/2 so far...still a ways to go but like the last time..every bit adds up until one day you really notice alot has come off!! We joined the YMCA and I half heartedly started and then they closed this weekend and next weekend and Mon and Tues of this week for renovations so I have to get my rear end walking or something in the mean time!
I think most of the hurdles are over for now...at least until my son's 1st birthday party. But I am sure I will do fine...I can plan for that piece of cake and then send the rest home with everyone else! I'm gonna try and insert a pic here but I am inexperienced at it so if it doesn't show just ignore me!
Have a great day! Michelle K
ok its too big I will have to try later to reduce
08-27-2001, 09:19 PM
Hi There Everyone,
Well my weigh-in tonight went soooooo much better than last week. I lost 1.8#'sI got my 25# magnet, yippee that means 25.2#'s lost since rejoining and 41#'s since my highest weight.
PJ, thanks, yes I know it is a surprise;) You have known me for over 2.5 years now and I have never got down this low since the beginning of the night owls, I am going all the way this time. By the way you look grreeeeeeaaaaaaatttttttt!!!!!! You are doing awesome.
Michelle, you are off to a great start, keep up the good work.
Calhounddoggy, I have to agree with you. Ww should definitely be better prepared, especially if they know you are coming each week. I am sorry you have had such a hard time. Please don't give up or feel embarassed. Like my leader says, Everyone in a ww meeting understands what you are going through. We are all in this together. Be proud of yourself that you are facing your challenges, and don't EVER feel bad or embarassed about what you are doing. We will all do this together and hey the rate you are going, sometime in the near future you won't need that added weight to the scale. You WILL get there as long as you don't give up.
Candice, I have heard that maintenance is very difficult. It is hard to get out of losing mode and I know that maintenance can be just as difficult, if not more, than losing mode. Just realize how far you have come and don't ever go back there, you will get the right mix, it is a whole new learning experience for you, congratulations!!!!!!!!!
See Ya Everyone
08-28-2001, 03:58 AM
Pj great picture:D I think you look faboulous..good and solid too! I'm flabby now that the extra weight is gone:(
Cal...Hang in there, don't let this get you down..you have made a good choice to start getting healthier so don't let those bozo's get to you! Great job on the 20..it will get easier!
Mich...Birthdays are killers with that cake..my Dh has one in a week and the cake he wants is 9 pts. a piece! I'll have to bank for that one!:dizzy: German Chocloate..Love it to much! Good loss too!
Bren..I love your advice..you remind me of a WW leader!:) You are doing so well..keep up the great work! Glad you are around!
All you owls are doing such a great job being losers!
PT today and now my neck is hurting and a headache( they worked on my neck too) Shouldn't be typing so much either!
Anyone heard of Curves for women fitness Centers???????????
08-28-2001, 12:32 PM
I am soooooo PO'd right now......I had a nice ......well, kind of long but for me........not the usual and it was a WITTY one too. :D
I've got to go and will try and remember what I said when I get back in here later on.

Hi Ladies :)
Just wanted to check in - see how you all were doing. I am doing ok - hanging in there. WW is going good - I am tracking faithfully and that is a savior for me! (even if I go over - tracking works).
Michelle - Congrats on your loss so far! Keep focused and you will be back to where you were before Andrew was born. How is he anyway? I would love to see a new picture - email me one!! Are you off AOL completely?
Judy - How is school? How is Steve? Did you get that whole mess fixed about his disability? Sometimes all companies think about is money - its disgusting!
Pamela Jo - Are you buying ANOTHER truck? How many have you had!! LOL I will check that link out and see what its all about. I have never heard of that one. Thanks for the pic - your hair looks really good!
Candice - I have heard of Curves - but I don't think we have them around here. Are you thinking of joining? Ohhh I love German Chocolate cake too! My birthday is coming - and I am still deciding on what cake to get. I should make a lowfat one - but I am not sure.....
Calhounddoggy - I would definately complain to upper management with WW. They should be prepared for everyone!
Brenda - You are doing so well!! Good for you. Keep up the good work and you will be at goal in no time. How are the girls?
Jennie - I think 1.8 is great - keep up the good work. Some weeks our bodies don't let go of as much - that is normal.
Ally - Where did you go to?
Well I must go - work is busy - I just wanted to check in to see how everyone was doing. By the way where is emmy????

Thanks for your input. Any support you can give me is helpful, not only to myself but others like me. I travel alot and so to go to just one meeting site is almost impossible for me. I have my daughter, girlfriend, and sister all working on this together. They are very supportive but I hope WW will get their act together and use some of the weekly dues money to update their facilities and get the appropriate equipment so that I don't feel so discriminated against. After all, this is the place where I'm supposed to feel most comfortable--among my fellow friends who also share in my difficulties. I'm trying to keep a positive frame of mind and again, I appreciate your supportive input!

I was quite surprised to learn that not only does Oregon have problems getting their equipment together to weigh everyone, but their costs are much higher than Idaho! I traveled to Boise last week and found a wonderful WW meeting to attend. They not only had digital scales, but their group leader was energetic and helpful. We got into 3 groups and talked together and then in the larger group, and everyone had a chance to contribute. I was glad that I had gone, since I had a good weight loss - 4.2# - and felt better knowing that I'd had a chance to weigh in. Anyhow, the Boise folks are wonderful and they even had some good products to sell. I got a casserole cookbook, measured serving spoons and 2 pt bars!! Wow--lots better than at home. Well, thanks again for the support--
