Good morning peeps. We had lots of snow yesterday. Driving was scary. We're supposed to be going to my parents house a few hundred miles away but I'm not sure we're going to make the trip. The roads are still a mess.

Good morning everyone it's a cold one here today. Glad to have 5 days off from work especially if its going to snow tomorrow. I like snow but only when I'm not having to drive in it. I hope everyone has a great Friday.

Sad day today ... Taking the grand kids back to the airport for their trip home. They are at such sweet ages. I took the 5yo girl to Claire's at the outlet mall yesterday and we had a marvelous time. I was surprised to find that she is very selective. She is getting her ears pierced when she gets home so we got lots of earrings (even pearl earrings!) and a few hair things. If it were me I would have wanted one of everything.

brrrr.... 8 inches of snow in South Dakota this morning. Since we really didn't have any last year, this is quite a change! Too bad it's so fluffy, not much water to help our farmers.

It's so hard when decisions like this have to be made around the holidays. There are still some here in northern MI that don't have power from late last week. Be safe whatever you decide.

What a great memory you created with your granddaughter! She will always think of you when choosing which earrings to wear.

Know what you mean - some are hoping for a heavy snow winter here for that same reason.

Good morning all,
Starting day 3 of my reboot. Have to admit, it's kind of exciting to see how it will go. The scuttlebutt is that the weight doesn't come off as easily as the first time, so I'll see and will record the second time around in a separate chart by my signature.

Am really working this hard, no restricteds and drinking at least 120 oz water/day. I do exercise though (weights, cardio, power plate and pilates), but always have and need to for health reasons (herniated back, etc). I live pain free with lots of exercise.

Have a wonderful OP day!
Chloe

Good morning! I have really been missing my Starbucks but I think I figured out something totally Phase 1 legal...I am a strict no cheater...does this sound OK to those of you more experienced?

Am americano with an inch of FF milk and SF vanilla flavor?

Great job! I hope onederland is all you've dreamed it could be! LOL You really have a lot to be proud of! Getting through the holidays and losing is amazing!

I am soo sick right now...my hubby just agreed to postphone our trip to PA until the morning so I can get another good night's sleep. I think I have strep though so all the sleep in the world prolly won't help! One good thing is that I don't feel much like eating so staying OP is actually easy...although I am craving some good sweets! I tried some of the IP sweets yesterday but they just missed the mark. Oh well...I've made it this far!!!

Have a great day everyone!!!

I've been using WF chocolate syrup in my coffee and it feels like a *huge* cheat but it isn't. Frothed milk with SF vanilla should be fine as well, I would think.

Today is my son's and fiance's last day in the islands with us. They're out playing tourist and then we'll take them out to a little Italian place we like for dinner. I know they have all kinds of salads and fresh seafood on the menu so it should be fine for me. The pasta, pizza and garlic knots are to die for, though!! I'll have to be satisfied with just the aromas. We'll take them to the airport early tomorrow morning. It's going to feel quiet around here! We still have another week before we head north for a month or so.

I'm sore from diving and lugging gear the last couple of days. I'll do more next week, but am doing my best not to overdo.

Oh ... and before I forget: I have a signature ticker!!!! Hooray!!!!

Awesome job, you will be in wonderland very soon.

Fishette you are a great grandma.

Maezy1 hope you are recovering well

I have a huge headache since eating carbs and sugar on Christmas day, took 3 extra strength excedrin still have a lingering headache, took sea salt. Trying to drink more water.

Had no trouble getting back to p1, not sure the headache was worth it

Have decided I know which friends of mine like to sabotage me and will avoid them. Pisses me off since I am always so supportive.
