Good morning IPeeps. (I don't know who started that term but I love it and hope you don't mind me using it) Good luck to those today that have weigh ins, good luck to every one else on staying OP. I'm so excited to be wearing a pair of old jeans today. There is a line in the movie "The First Wives Club" that Bette Middler says to her son about the outfit she is wearing..he asks if it's new and she says "It's better than new, it's old!" That's the way I feel today!

hwmgrl, I think I wore shorts on Monday! Good luck with your weigh in! To answer your question from yesterday, I haven't had time to set up a website yet. Too busy with my kids and taking care of my husband's 90-year-old aunt. Most of my business is by word of mouth. I think I have a dress listed on Etsy right now under TwinOaksClothing. You can also see some of the things that I've made on my business's Facebook page -- again Twin Oaks Clothing. I try to post pictures of the things that I make.

I'm so happy that my new warm and fuzzy boots arrived yesterday. I wore them this morning while I waited with my daughters at the bus stop. I see the sun peeking out through the clouds, so I guess the dreary rainy weather that we've been having is coming to an end.

Good luck to everyone with weigh ins today, and hope everyone else has a fantastic day!

Rainy morning here in CT. Having my WI in the evening today instead of first thing in am(not my choice, my C had to reschedule). That means probably lower number on the scale. Getting a little discouraged last few weeks with low losses or none last week, and needed my number to correspond with my efforts today(had one restricted item only over last week) to give me a boost...and get me excited again. Just means that I will have feed my motivation somewhere else
Wish a happy day to everyone!

Haha I agree with rainbowmom, Congratulations, LOVE that quote!! I actually found a bunch of jeans at my mother's place and brought them home, determined to get back into all of them! However I did buy one new pair, they were only $10 so I figured it was better then wearing the baggy ones for any longer!
Today I'll definately be taking measurements. I'm using alternatives and have just been checking my weight. However now that its slowing down a bit I need another indicator of my progress.

I LOVE that movie! (And I also love Bette Middler haha!)

Today is my first official day OP! So far, so good!

I spent all night last night chopping and cooking. For lunch today, I have small salad with 1/4 cup cukes and a dressing of vinegar, oil and hot mustard. I baked scallops w/ lemon juice and some seasoning and grilled/seasoned 1 3/4 cup zucchini. I hate cooking, but it's not so bad when you keep it simple.

Hope you all have a great day

Good luck today. The first few days can be difficult, but so worth it. Just remember to hang in there.

Good luck to everyone who has weigh in's today. Quiet day here today. It's still cold out, but at least the rain and clouds have moved on and the sun is out. I bought myself new exercise pants yesterday and they were in the regular size department, not the big size department. I can hardly remember the last time I bought anything in the regular size section. So excited to wear them today when I go to the gym..

Happy Wednesday everyone.

Good morning everyone!!!

Another fine day here in the PNW... actually I am really tired, I am really sore, and busy as all heck at work.
But see how full of it I can be!!!

I am working with my clinic to try and become a coach for them, not really as an extra job, but to pay it forward and try and help some of the others out there that have a harder time on the program, I feel like I could really help motivate some people out there.

I hope everyone is having a good morning, everyone stay positive and stay OP!!!

I love this!!

It is a fairly quiet day here. It is cold, but at least not cold and rainy like the past few days have been!!
All the talk recently about the vivid dreams finally caught up to me last night. I dreamed that I was back in high school and I couldn't fit in my desk! It was so realistic, even had people from school in the dream! And we rode to class on 4-wheelers and there were white rabbits jumping in the grass...can you tell I'm from the country?!?! LOL!! Weird!!
Oh, well, congrats to everyone with losses and NSV's and best of luck to all of you who WI today!!

That is an awesome thing to take on!! Wishing you the best with your new venture!! You would be a great coach and you already are a great motivator!!
