Morning everyone. Hope you all had a good weekend. I hope everyone finds us ok.

Weigh iN day this morning. Scale said----232.4. That's a 4 pound loss!!! Woo hoo!! good eating definitely paid off this weekend. the scale was even down to 230 on saturday but I couldn't use that bcuz it wasn't official WI day. Now I need to just start excercising and see what I can really lose!!

aimee-it costs almost 11 bucks to go to the movies??!! daaaang! it's 9.00 over here. but me and my bf always say we're students so we get a little discount. that's a lot of freaking money for a movie. sheesh!!

courtnie-congrats on the loss. last week was pretty rockin for the both of us, huh? yay for new patio furniture!!

nikki-you're gonna get back to eating right. Why don't you head on over to the planning thread?? It's a big help.

la3y-don't worry about no loss. just hang in there and your bound to see one. you can do it!!

chat with you gals later!!!

Rosario - wow!!! 4 pounds is amazing!! You are going to be back where you were in NO time, that with a scale that says more? Good job :) I bet it's super motivating too, keep it up girl! Yah, moves are a little too expensive here, but they've dropped in price!

Nikki - I'd totally start with one meal.. and then work your way up to 3 perfect meals, that usually works really well for me.

So yesterday I had NO pop, NO sugar drinks, just water!! And I had no bread. It was freakin' amazing!! And I even rearranged my livingroom perfectly, it's looks so much bigger now. Today I'm cleaning the bathroom and kitchen between work! I am working 9-1:30pm, and then 6pm-9pm for training.. fun, eh? I figure its a great time to clean and get this house looking decent for when my friend from Scotland stays over Tuesday night. Ooops, I guess I should go get ready for work..

Rosario - I must of missed your post about your loss - woooo congrats!!! happy :dance: for the both of us.

The movies here used to be 10$ for adults, but they lowered the price to 8$ but now everyone pays 8$ and no cheap Tuesdays. That is just the one theather tho, not sure about the other.

La3y - you are doing so awesome! before you know it you will be at your final goal. I am hoping to see my final goal by next sumer - that should give me plenty of time. 50 pounds in 1 year - I can do it! And that should account for any pleatus I might hit!

Hope everyone is doing great!

Thanks Ladies I may join you all. I usually do well but not feeling right had me eating odd. Today I am back on track though I had 2 slices of turkey and a small box of rasins for breakfast. I am eating a ww meal for lunch and I will have greek salad for dinner. Plus my 4 water bottles 32 ounces X4= 128 ounces total.

Oh yes, it helps me lots! Everynight I think about what I am going to have the next day to eat. I plan it out in my fitday and see where my calories are and where I have room for extra yummy things to eat. Then I come here and post in the planning thread. As long as I am good about it - I usually stick to it. My exercise has been slacking tho :(

I totally forget haha. So liked I mentioned before I went the Pub on Saturday night (wearing my 4 inch smaller bra and already feeling good!) but anyway My boyfriend and I were going out with some of his friends from work - that I have never really met. Even tho it turns out that every singal one of us there (at least 8-10) had all worked at the same place before... but anyway they were brining their girlfriends. One girl I knew from school and work and she is SUPER skinny - nice body - but not that good looking. Anyway I was worried I was going to be the fatest. I got myself looking nice and felt good and when we got there... there were 4 girls and I was the SECOND SMALLEST!!! I was soo happy! I thought a lot of guys my boyfriend worked with were all about looks, but it was nice to see that they just like nice girls. And I felt like I fit it better... I know it sounds harsh to say I was happy to see girls bigger then me, but I was! I had a great time! I didn't get to talk much to the other two girls (one was a real B*** she was hitting on this guy and trying to get in his pants and apparently she has a boyfriend - I hope I never have to see her again!) The other girl seemed nice, and the super skinny girl I went to school with... I never liked her that much but I got to talk to her and she seems to have changed, she was nice and gave me a hug when she left. She just found out she is pregnant so I wished her luck and all that. Her and her boyfriend were going to move into our basement suite (they aren't now) and now I am kinda sad they arent. I really need to make a good girlfriend and I don't think my puppy is going to cut it. haha

Hi everyone...I've been missing for awhile and wanted to post a quick update! I haven't been online as much because my boyfriend has been dealing with this weird eye problem and I've been driving him to lots of doctors appointments. The weekend before last, he woke up with double vision. We went to an emergency clinic where they determined his right eye was partially paralyzed, but we still don't know why it happened. He had an MRI and saw an eye doctor, but still no answer as to why it happened right now. He has more doctors appointments and tests coming up this week and next. The good news is that his vision has been slowly improving. But...it would be nice to know why this is happening! Any time that I've spent online has been trying to research what's going on with him.

Anyway...no loss for me yet. I've been eating worse than usual due to being stressed. Congrats to those who are losing! I have to go back and catch up on the threads to see how everyone is doing. Hope all is well with everyone!

OMG!! So I literally had the worst day at work today... but then... I have a telephone interview tomorrow! I went into my bf's work, crying my eyes out and he took me into the managers office and in there was his Assistant Manager and DMGM, well first the DMGM said he'd beat my boss up for me, hehe.. and then he said he'd call his wife and get me a job doing data entry at a private school for 15 bucks an hour!! So I have a telephone interview with her tomorrow.. I'm pretty excited, I hope it all works out :)

Robin - wow thats pretty scary, it's hard when mysterious things happen. I know something weird happened to my bf last summer, and everytime he wasn't around I'd fall to pieces and cry... but I'd have to hold it together when he was around. If you ever just need to talk, vent, anything.. I know I speak for everyone when I say.. we are here for you.

Courtnie - I've resorted to hanging out with my neighbour (who steals, and stole from my store... bad bad bad).. desperate times call for desperate measures. The convenience is too good, if I need an opinion on say how I rearranged my house I can count on her. Ugh, I know I should stay far away though. But it's lonely!

Rosario - I thought of you today... I wore a trendy new tank today, and it made me think of MTV.. and then you.. heh.

It's a very cute tank, I'm sure I've told you all about it before... it's a camoflage ribbed tank, I wore it layered (when am I not laying everything I wear.. it's a sick obsession) and I wore Havianas flip flops in ruby red (SO SO comfy btw!). I'm impossibly trend obsessed and into brand names.. I dunno whats wrong with me. (I also have adidas hair elastics.. who BUYS that!!). Today is day 2 of no sugar drinks, my head is throbbing and I SO want to go crack open a can of 7up.. but I'm resisting. I am far to addicted to pop. :(

Morning -

I need to vent and I apologize in advance I am just at witts end!

I am having major issues this morning. My parents are splitting up and I am stuck in the middle. This is causing massive stress. Mom is calling me 5-6 times in a 3 hour span and constantly coming in my room crying and stuff. I realize this is stressful for her but I don't think it is right to use me as her support. In addition I get left doing the housework. Getting an apt is not an option right now because of health and finances. Anyhow, yesterday I ate well I thought. I had 2 slices of turkey and rasins for breakfast, a WW meal for lunch and a ceaser salad for dinner. The scale shows a 2 lb gain today. I can only think it is the stress. I worked out yesterday and today and am eating right. Any ideas on what else this could be?

thanks
Nikki

Robin-that's pretty scary. I'm glad his vision is coming back, but I would be pretty freaked out if I didn't know what was causing it. I hope the doctors find out soon what was the cause. Stay strong, girl!

aimee-score on that interview. good luck!! remember to be confident. I love layering!!! I love the look of another color peeking out from beneath my top. I didn't even know adidas made hair bands. you're like my bf. he likes to have all the good brands. me, I don't care. as long as its cute and comfortable, I'll buy it and wear it. great job on your eating and staying away from sugar!!

nikki-i think your gain is definitely stress related. I think you need to talk to your mom about what's going on. Let her know that you'll be there for her but that you need your space to. It seems like your doing good on your eating so keep doing what you are doing and keep your chin up!!

courtnie-that's great about your bf friends gfs. I am a little hesitant to meet my bf's friends because of the way I look. But that's good that you got out and met some people.

Yesterday I overdid it on pizza a bit. At least I didn't go over 2000 calories. It's still high, but it could of been worse. Stilll trying to get my excercise on. I just feel too lazy. I better get crackin though because I think this loss that I had has got me a little too overconfident and I'm starting to slack off. My bf wants to go get a tattoo this weekend, I was supposed to get one with him but I wanted to lose weight because of where I want to get it. We're supposed to get each other's names. Kind of cheesy, I know. But I like it. lol

catch up with you all later!!!

Aimee - good luck with the interview! and stay away from bad people!

Nikki - maybe you could stay with a friend for a few days? it sounds like you need to get out of that house. As for the gain, I don't know - I am up 3. I think it happens to everything. But it sounds like you might not be eating enough, how many calories do you usually have a day?

Rosario - Don't worry about some pizza! Back on track today! With my birthday coming up I am sure there is going to a few days this week I am going to go over calories, but I just have to do my best if I want to lost 2.6 pounds this week.

Well girls, you wont believe this but I am on my bike right now - gooo me! The only thing is that I only have time for 20 min this morning. I was up eariler but I just didnt want to get out of bed. And the only reason why I have time is cuz my lunch is already made... I really need to get back up to waking up earlier. I want my boyfriend to put the spare tv in the spare room so its all ready to go. As it is right now I have to drag my bike half way across the house if I want to watch tv and ride.

I just noticed the thing I have the laptop sitting on has put a mark on my freshly painted wall! eeps lets hope my step dad doesn't find it! haha
My step dad has really been getting on my nerves, he like tells me to do something with the new place and before I ever have a chance to do it, he wants to know why its not done yet... argh. He doesnt know about the dog either, I am just going to get it and show him and then he is going to ***** at me for weeks... I hate it. I just hope this goes away once we are more setteled it - it is almost as stressful as living at home again!

Rosario- Hang in there. I love the thought of the tattos so romantic lol.

Courtnie- I am not eating enough I just cant eat. When I eat I'm afraid I'll gain and I'm nauseous from stress. It is 2 pm and all I had so far today is a small ceaser salad legt over from last night. I'm tempted to go get a starbucks frapuccino just to get more calories in me. I will be going to stay at my boyfriends Fri- Monday morning I cannot wait to get out of here. I am sure I'll eat better there.

I made this stuff with my hambugers last night, I took canned nibblets corn, canned mushrooms, low fat margine, onion, garlic seasoning and fried it all up it was soo yummy! so for lunch today I mixed in some whole wheat pasta and a bit of hot sauce, SUPER GOOD! I think I am going to have to make some more and pack it up for lunchs! mmmm

La3y - be sure to let us know how it goes when it happens, I have kinda been thinking I want one.

Nikki - what about a protien shake or something? That might helps and help get some extra protien too! You take the mix, maybe some fruit, milk, ice, maybe even some peanut butter... mmm they are tastey!

Nikki128
07-18-2006, 06:13 PM
I have never tried a protein shake. I will have to check out getting some ingredients. Well I forced myself to eat a hotdog and some veggies. I also had 1 sausage link. Now I feel like I'm going to pop. I don't expect to see a loss tomorrow but it would be nice. I'll just keep trying. Tomorrow I will force myself to eat 3 meals.

I am so slacker today! I woke up... started to paint my toe nails and then headed to the mall to meet a friend. I got the cutest tube top.. it actually looks good too!

Nikki - Those days away will do your wonders.. get your mind off things. I wouldn't expect a loss that you can really sustain if you aren't eating much. I've had those days where you just can't stand to eat.. it's like everything makes you ill. Enjoy those days away :)

la3y - omg! Goodluck with the boob reduction! I want mine lifted, heh. My friend got hers reduced, and while it was painful.. she said it wasn't unbarable. You will be fine, just rest lots :)

Courtnie - yay! Good job getting back on that bike.. it's so good for you. I've heard it realllly works the mid section.. do you really notice how much flatter your stomach is? I bet your waist so so much smaller with that bike!

So I painted my toe nails.. now I have the worlds smallest toe nails, but I braved it and did french tips on my toes. It was looking pretty good and then I put a pink coat on.. not so much a fan. But I'm going to leave it until they need to be done again. I'm feeling way more girly these days.. dunno what thats all about. Anyways, I gotta go put some stuff away before we go pick up my friend. Have a good one :)

I can't believe there is still two hours of work left. I am sooo tired and ready for a nap!

I hope tomorrow morning I can get back on the bike, even if it is only for 20 min. Before I was doing 80 and I think it might of been too much. I am hoping to get back to riding everyday for about 45 min. Especially if I want to make my birthday goal... 2.6 pounds away! eeps!

This week is going to be hard too. One day this week we will have Birthday cake at work and normally I don't have any but this is my birthday month and I think I should allow myself a piece! And then another night, probably Thursday, we are going for dinner. I am going with my friend (him and I were going for sushi a lot) and he has never meet my boyfriend, so him, his girlfriend, my boyfriend, and I are all going out - hopefully somewhere where my friend and I can get sushi but my bf can find something he likes too! haha Saturday/Sunday my boyfriend and I are probably going camping with my parents... Sunday is my birthday! And this weekend is Bathtub weekend (but we will miss most of it if we are camping!). It should be a busy weekend. I love bathtub weekend (and not just cuz my birthday usually lands on it, haha). And next week I get my puppy! eeeps, so much is happening I am going crazy. I think that's why I am having a hard time focusing on work cuz my mind keeps wandering to better things, lol. But I do love my job!

I am starting to get hungry... mmm I wonder whats for dinner!

Bathtub weekend... welll haha

People race around in the ocean in Bathtubs! They used to go accross the strait from Nanaimo to Vancouver but now they just kinda loop around or something. I never watch the races, but there is always lots going on down at our sea wall. Tons of bad food, people, and stuff to buy! They usually have like a market type thing and get get Fireworks! we skip Canada day and do them Bathtub week instead - always the third weekend of July. Last year I had Fireworks on my Birthday! wooo!

I think I mentioned before about my boyfriend's aunt and how she is an uber b*** And how it was too hard for to take a different exit to pick me up (not to mention we have been getting to work a half an hour early!) anyway she hasn't said anything about it in the last week but I am assuming she doesn't want to drive me much longer - BUT-

I found a guy here where I work that was looking for someone to pair up with and help with the cost of gas! I don't really know but he always say Hi to me when I see him - seems like a nice guy - he works upstairs. But anyway, starting in August I can get a ride with him and say by by to uber b*** (yaah out of her house and out of her car! weee). The only bad thing he leaves at 7:30 - no more early bike rides! haha

But yah, I am excited! I dunno if I tell her today or wait a few days and then tell her....

courtnie-great on the excercise u are getting in. i actually woke up at 6am this morning and i wasn't tired at all. But instead of working out, I just lay in bed. I guess I'll never learn. ah, yes. relying on people for a ride is such a pain in the ***. looks like you got ***** out of your life for good (well, not for good as she is your bf's family). at least u don't have to deal with her anymore!!

nikki-yes eating does help!! i'm glad your letting go of that weight.

aimee-i think as you lose weight you are going to feel even more girlier. that's the way I am. When I was bigger, I used to wear t-shirts and jeans. but as I lost weight, I started to wear more form-fitting, blouses, you know, girly stuff. I guess it comes with the territory.

oh why, oh why can't I get myself to excercise. I know I need to, but I have just been soooo lazy lately. Plus, right now, I'm addicted to playing SIMS on the PSP. so that isn't helping. I hope I snap out of it soon, because I do want this weight loss to go a bit quicker (or at least with more noticable results!!)

have a great wednesday!!!

I am definatly becoming more girly but I dont think that's weight loss. I mean I am starting to wear pink and I never worse pink before not even when I was skinnier. I even bought myself a new purse on the weekend and it is pink with flowers and has some beeded flowers and some shinny things, I think it is SOOO Cute but I dunno if anyone else agrees haha

I am definatly turning into a total girl, I dont know if I ever was really one before like I am now... maybe thats what happens when you work in an office full of guys.

And yes I think we are out of the *****'s live for good... almost. My boyfriend would like that anyway, she is crazy just like his mom and he hasnt talked to his mom in at least 8 years. Hopefully we wont have to see her too often, her problem is that AA and her AA 'friends' are more important then anything else in the world... I think she has that a bit screwed up.

omg, I am such a loser and spend too much time on the internet... but anyway I am sitting here at work, bored. So I start listening to my ipod trying to find something I haven't listened to in a while... so I end up lisnteing to Hanson.

Now I used to be a HUGE hanson fan like when I was 13 (and then the moffatts came out and they were were better and I stopped liking hanson) but anyway I am listening to their best of cd or something. And I start thinking, hmm I wonder what ever happened to Hanson. So I google and find their page blah blah blah. Anyway the youngest one, like younger then me just got married, the middle one like a bit older then me got married a while ago and just has his third kid or something! like... just seems so weird!

But anyway, that was a total pointless post except I was a little less bored for a while 2 mintues.

I decided to edit this and tell you guys what a weirdo I really used to be (or still am? haha). Anyway I used to have my whole room COVERED in Hanson posters (of course it later changed to Moffatts) - this was my room at my dads so I didnt see it all the time. Anyway it was totally covered. I had pics of it and all this and I was at school (like grade 7) and we were making kites in the gym so I made a Hanson kite - long story short this lady (my best friends neighbour or something) saw it and told me her Nephew or something or someone she knew nephew's was they manager or something. She she told me to give her pics and write a letter and all this crap so of course, being a freaky teen girl I did. Like 6 months later I got a personalized Autograph in the mail. And it wasnt one of those fake autographs they send out, it was real! I cried the day that came in the mail... yes I am a freak.

The stories I could tell about me and my band expierences... those were the days.

I always wear make up and then I stopped and if I worse any it was just a bit of cover up and maybe mascara. My boyfriend's say he likes make up, but just a bit. I never worse much, and all natural colours. I started wearing it again yesterday, haha. I feel more put together, but its not that noticable that im wearing it. He also likes it when I do my hair rather then letting it dry on its own, haha.

But some guys really dont like make up!

courtnie-don't get me started on New Kids on the Block!! haha

I love wearing make-up. I don't like to wear it a lot though because i don't want to be one of those people that needs make-up to look good. i do think i look prettier with it though. my bf loves when i get all made up and straighten my hair. I think he doesn't like my curls. I looooove my curls!!! but to keep from damaging my hair I only straighten it when I go out on the weekends. Other than that I lieave it down and curly.

So like you Courtnie, I don't have much to do at work and I'm surfing clothing websites. And I'm on Macy's.com. They have so much cute clothes on clearance. But in small sizez. Grrr!! I want to be a normal size already so I can get all that cute clothes that's on clearance. Oh man, the shopping spree that I'm going to go on when I reach my goal! But I want to be there already. the chocolate ice cream that i just ate isn't really helping, but, oh, only if it were easier. I'm sure you all feel my pain!!

07-19-2006, 03:40 PM
I wish my hair was curly, its kinda straight but when it dries on its on its just goes weird and flips out here and there. So I usually blow dry and straighten and sometimes I just put crap in it and make it kinda curley! haha

Yah the lady sent me new pictures today and told me what a sweetie she is, I cant wait! Maybe a little later if I am not too lazy I will post the new pics for you guys to see.

I think I look good with and without make up, but it makes me look a little different. I stopped wearing it when my gramma died - I didnt want it running down my face and then I realized that I look great with out and totally different (thats what someone told me, haha).

Anyway yah work is borning... COME ON MSN! lol

07-19-2006, 03:42 PM
hmmm make up, usually cover girl - its cheap and has what I like. I like a bit of fondation to make my face more even. I usually use a brown/topaque eye shadow and then kinda a light brown, cream to go up a bit higher. But I think almost everything is cover girl, except my eye liner I just buy the cheap dollar stuff cuz it works better, haha.

I just started using a self tanning cream as well, we shall see how that goes!

Rosario
07-19-2006, 03:55 PM
Let's see I use, almay, maybelline, estee lauder, and mac and anything I find on clearance. At target the other day, I got a mousse eyeshadow and a black eyeliner for 2 bucks from maybelline. it was a deal I couldn't pass up on.

I want to use a self tanner. Im thinking of those lotions that gradually darken you over time. I used to love this tinted moisturizer from Avon but it made me break out :(

courtnie---that puppy is so cute. you made a great choice!!!

So I have been very bad with food and excercise. I really want to excercise but I just get too lazy. I'm supposed to walk while I wait to go pick up my bf four miles. I hope i do it!!! I did run up 3 flights of stairs last night, but that didn't even last 5 minutes.

Scale was down this morning, though. Woo hoo!!! I hope it stays down until monday. Do you think it really matters when you weigh yourself?? I always do it first thing in the morning before I take a shower. I wonder if the time of day has an effect at all.

ChaT WITH ALL OF YOU LATER!!!

Hi ladies -

I too have a hard tme growing out my own nails. When I was teaching I had sexy long fake ones but 40.00 every 2 weeks to maintain is crazy.

I was looking in the mirror today and even though I am stil up a pound I feel like my body has toned itself and reshaped so I guess that is good. I am so frustrated I bought a bunch of clothes in June I thought would last me all summer. Now, when I try on the tops they are just to big they make my waistlook like it is the same porportion as my hips which it is not. These tops are mediums and smalls. It is getting very frustrating because now I feel frumpy in my clothes instead of sexy and the few tops I have that may look ok I feel like they are to tight so I won't wear them. Does anyone else do this? by the time I think ok I can wear that top , shorts <fill in theblank> it is already to big. I have a major fear of wearing clothes that are to tight because I hate to have to look at people who wear clothes 2 sizes to small and think they look good. This is so irrational I feel like I need to go buy new clothes but don't have the money right now and quite possibly I look good in the ones I have but its my distrortion that is the problem.


On a different note yesterday I had a nice experience. I went to the store to buy my bf a present. This man was walking behind me < atotal hottie he was> so he rushed to open the door for me and when I said "thanks" he says if you wait I will open the other door for you too. Now I was blushing and giggling like a freak lol I forgot what it is like to get attention from strangers. Shh don't tell my boyfriend but I am loving the looks and flirting.


I realize having typed the last part that the 2 comments are completely contrary lol. One says I don;t think I look good the other says hey I'm getting attention I havent got in years.


I must be crazy!!!

Roasrio - I always weigh before I shower or eat - and it deifnatly lower then after a shower or eating! haha I also find if I weigh at 5am the scale is usually lower in a couple hours. So usually I weigh in at 10 on weigh in days (unless I get up super early and need to eat). and just remember, thin tastes better then anything (or however that quote goes). Once you get into the grove of exercise it gets easier, its getting into the grove that is hard.

Nikki - yesterday's expierecne sounds awesome! I cant wait for that to happen to me... never really has, not from total strangers anyway. As for the clothes, lots of mine are getting baggy and too big, but I wear it anyway, it makes me feel fatter but like you I just cant reason spending money on something I wont wear for long. I have bought myself new pants and bras but other then that not really any shirts - I guess I hoddie. Like I bought myself jeans and a hoddie but told myself I cant wear them until I get to 180 - hopefully this week! But I definatly need some new t-shirts!

Yah - I don't like shopping at thrift stores either. I don't know why, I mean i like finding used cloths and its not hard to wash them... I am just weird I guess. I shouldn't be, if I shopped at thrift stores more I would probably have a lot more money laying around!

Hey gals!! Sorry no post from me yesterday, my friend was here in the morning and then at night I went out as soon as I got home. And to think I missed all the makeup talk.. I love makeup!! My fav brand name is Lise Watier, it's a Canadian brand I believe. Her foundation does wonders for my skin, I get really red cheeks, and you can't even tell with this stuff. :)

Rosario - did you watch The Hills last night? It was Jason's birthday on my episode last night.. I don't get that boy. I think Lauren is really settling. I always weigh after I've been up for an hour, and before I eat. Sometimes that doesn't always work tho.. I never wake up early enough, by the time an hour has goneby I'm usually heading to work.

Nikki - I love attention from other guys.. altho I don't really get it much yet. I also can't even remember what it's like! I was once out with this group of people, including two guys.. anywho... this girl who I was with is bigger than me, and I have to be honest.. I'm better looking. But guys were buying her drinks ALL night long! So I asked the two guys we were with and they said that I act like i'm taken. I didn't know that was possible, Go figure!

Courtnie - go shopping NOW, everything is on sale. I got my tube top for less than 10 bucks. Smart Set was doing 25% off the last price on all sale items, most places are blowing out their clothes now.

Alrighty gals, the scale still says 229 this morning (well it alternates between 229 and 230, I dunno), so Tuesday night when I ate bad I must have gained a pound! I'll see what the scale says tomorrow morning, but it looks like I'm staying still.

I understand about acting taken. I am a natural born flirt so I tend to do it without noticing. My boyfriend thinks its funny when guys flirt with me lol. I hear you on the staying still. I prob gained a pound this week but I'm trying not to worry about it. Maybe if I don't stress over it I'll start losing again.

So Sunday is my birthday and we are going camping this weekend - just one night, Saturday. But we will spend most of Saturday and Sunday at the camp gound.

During this time, so I do my best to stay within my calories or not worry abou t it? Within reason of course, I am not going to plow down a huge bag of chips or half a cake. But should I allow myself to not count calories during the time at the camp ground? Last time I did and I mean I went over but not a lot but I am thinking this time is my birthday.... I dunno. What do you guys think? Should I just enjoy the weekend and not count at all?

hey guys. i've been out of the diet loop so far today (pretty much this whole week) so I really didn't want to post much. but the day is almost over so I might as well. eating has been blah and no excercise. i hope i get some motivation this weekend so I can jump back in. Although there was a pic in the mini-goal photo album that got me a little motivated. I want to wear a sexy dress tooo!!! (I'm such a whiner!!)

Tonight we are going to see about my bf getting a tattoo. He plans on getting it tonight and then we'll go grab some dinner and catch a movie. ahh, i love friday nights. don't u??

aimee-i've seen that episode. have u noticed that whenever she talks to jason her voice gets high and babyish. I hate girls like that!! I guess she likes being in a drama-filled relationship, since she puts up with him.

courtnie-since I'm not going to be online this weekend let me say this now:
:hb: Happy Birthday!!!!:hb:
:gift: :woo: :balloons: I say you go all out and not worry about eating. It's your special day and we all deserve at least one free day. Hope you have a great b-day and have lots of fun!!!!

Everyone have a great weekend. I hop everyone enjoys themselves and sticks to their plans. And good luck to anyone who has WI this weekend (yikes, mine is on moday morning!!).

Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday!

I'd say let yourself enjoy a few treats without obsessing about the calories if you feel like you can handle it. A piece of cake and ice cream is not at all unreasonable as long as you don't go and have the rest of the cake for breakfast the next day. You only get a birthday once a year :)

I'm down one more pound! I may not make it to 145 by the 4th but if I could be in the 140s at all I will be ecstatic.

OMG - worst weekend ever!!! I did pretty bad with food, it was WAY too hot, and last night I ended up going to that bachlorette party for a little bit. Ugh! The girl who's bach party it was calling me a f@#$ing B@#%$ because I couldn't afford to go in the limo, plus I had to work this morning, and I don't get along with her friends. Today was SO busy at work, and this heat makes me a little cranky... and the bf is feeling the wrath of not finishing everything he said he would.

So I'm really not motivated these days.. I'm not exercising, or really eating well. Like today, for breakfast I had oatmeal, and then like 1.5 hours later I had 2 chicken fajitas from McD's, for lunch I had a salad, with fullfat ranch dressing and croutons and cheese.. and finally for dinner we had taco salad, homemade. I can't even imagine how many calories it was. Maybe I should figure it out for peace of mind? I gotta stop with the fast food, today was the first day in a couple without! Got any words of wisdom?

Yeah, I feel your pain. I ate at a chinese buffet (2.5 plates of food) and then McDonalds later, a Quarter pounder meal with a Mc Flurry for dessert. I probably ate between 4000 and 4500 calories for the day. Good grief. So yeah, I'm there with ya. Today I started eating low cal again and though i'm not thrilled I know tomorrow i'll be proud of myself. Just do it a day at a time. It sounds cliche but it works after binges, at least for me. :)

25 days until my vacation!! I really want to hit 220 before I go.. I think drastic times calls for drastic measures. Yes thats right... even tho it's a struggle for me since I'm addicted to all sugar.. I'm going to brave South Beach!! No sugar, yikes! It'll be worth it though, I'll feel better, finally get away from this stupid 230 number, and yah, I'll look better! That being said, I'll probably wait to start until I get back from Seattle. We leave Thursday after my job interview and are coming back either late Saturday or early Sunday.

I am back! Busy weekend, Friday my cousin visited for a bit. Saturday we walked around and check out the bathtub festivites and then went camping for the night. Sunday was my birthday. It was an awesome weekend, lots of swimming and way too much eating - but I am not counting the weekend. Back on it today tho!

I bought 3 new shirts over the weekend - all in L!!! YAAy ME! I even got my boyfriend swimming, this is the first time in the (almost) two years we have been together that we have gone camping and swimming together! It was an amazing birthday - had so much fun. So hard to believe that I am 21 now tho! No loss for me, meaning I did not make my goal. But that's okay. I think I am almost done with setting goal dates, I just never make them and its starting to get kinda depressing. I did some close tho.

I am kinda upset, like I said yesterday was my birthday and my dad never called me. I called him this morning to ask him and a question and he still never wished me a happy birthday... I think he forgot about me :( I even said oh my sister got me a toy for the dog for my birthday and he still never clued in. I talked to him on Saturday and he never said it then either. :( all well, I am sure when he does remember he will call me, haha.

Courtnie - sounds like a pretty good birthday weekend :) A smaller size and swimming in this heat? I don't know about you.. but I'm melting. I am enjoying it, because I know it's going to end soon. I really do like heat, so sweating? yah it's just life. heh. So with your dad? He's human, and a man.. I don't think my dad has remembered my birthday in like 15 years.

Nikki - I think the summer is made for crazy weekends!! Ex-gf's are... yah, I dunno. I've met some of the girls my bf knows, not even DATED and I feel like a whale, an ugly ugly whale. But obviously he see's something in me that he didn't see with them.

So I have an interview to be a photo lab assistant manager on Thursday, I'm kinda nervous. I haven't done that type of job in about 4 years, yikes. I just found out today that it was going to be for management, I thought it was going to be more for part time. It's going to pay a max of 12.83/hr to start, a slight improvement. I dunno.. job stuff is confusing! I'm off to read about being a personal shopper.. hehe...

Aimee - good luck with that interview. My problem was not feeling infereor to her. She is a rude witch and wilnot say hello or one word to me. It is clear she is jealous and he doesn't see it that is what gets me. I don't want to ever be in her presence again.


So my parents are at it again. I called my grandma to ask if I could stay by here for the night. I was shocked she said no you have to support your mom. So I'm being thrown into the support roll and lots of crying , yelling and just feeling real cruddy going on here. Also I have a sore throat :( I have no idea what the scale wil say but I really cant be to concerned right now.

Aimee - guess I should feel so bad about my dad... everyone is kind of upset tho that he never called, like my step dad and my boyfriend. Yes it is VERY hot, least I have air conditioning at work!

Nikki - I know what your going through. When I lived at home my mom and my step dad faught all the time. Usually it was because of something I did. My mom was always crying and drinking and I was just kind of stuck there. I didn't want to leave because I didnt want to leave her alone - she gave me the impression that I was all she had and the only reason she was staying there was because me and my sister. My mom went thru a treatment center just over a year ago for her drinking - things got better - I moved out. Now mom told me last week that she wants to leave again. It is never ending and I know just how you feel. My adivce - let it go in one ear and out the other, try not to worry about things that are going on. Maybe get a second job in the evenings to keep you busy - I loved going to work just for the fact that I got out of the house. Good luck!
