Good morning everyone!

I got back from Colorado on sunday but I have been mentally unavailable until today. Not that I haven't been paying attention to my food intake and my weight, I just haven't been strong enough to deal with it outwardly, if that makes any sense. My vacation was terrible on my diet, though a lot of fun. I was good at the wedding and only tried two bites of wedding cake, but I did drink some wine. I snacked in the car on low salt nuts and we did stop for dairy queen once on the way up and I had an ice cream cone because it was 105 degrees outside. My choices, in general, for dinner, lunch, breakfast, were good choices, but they were unpredictable at what time and what would be available. I did not get almost any fruits or vegetables in unless they were accidentally at the dinner. It's just the way it turned out.

On the plus side I drank a ton of water because it was so hot during the trip. I totalled up something like 15 Dasani water bottles between the trip up there and the trip back.

Still, I jumped from 281 to 288 the day I got back. Some of it I know is from TOM which came. I've been really depressed about the gain which is why I've stayed away from here. I just wasn't able to face it yet. Now I'm facing it, but I've also dropped it since sunday to 283.2 as of this morning.

Right now I'm enjoying some watermelon and a low carb wheat tortilla with laughing cow garlic and herb cheese, turkey and spinnach. It's a weird breakfast, but I was starving and this sounded good.

I've also taken great comfort in my new blog where I'm archiving everything that happens to me. It's at www.onpie.blogspot.com if anyone is interested.

I missed you all a great deal. I'm glad to be back in your company.

Sommer--so glad you are back! You'll be back on track in no time and once you get rid of all the extra water and sodium you'll be just fine.

Sommer, we missed you! You know what, life happens. We can't always control what food is around us and when. You mostly made good choices, and that's what matters!

Michelle - I am an excel geek too. I use it for EVERYTHING. Must be something about those nice neat lines and columns and my rigid type A personality.

I bought from the Schwan's man yesterday. I don't do it very often, who needs all that temptation laying around. Hopefully the kiddos will have it gone soon.

I thought I'd bring this over to the August thread so that everyone gets a chance to see it. We have quite a few folks signed up, but the more the merrier!

New LAWL fun
I know that posting this on a weekend will probably bury it, but hopefully we can spread the word.

One of the other message boards I belong to is holding it's 3rd annual holiday ornament exchange, and I thought it might be fun to organize something like that here.

Good grief - am I talking about December already? Gross! But, it does take some planning, so here goes:

It works like this. You PM me your real name, your real address and what type of ornaments you like. Then in October, I will send you the name and ornament preferences of an exchange buddy via PM. You would go out and buy or make an ornament for your buddy. Put a holiday card in it with your real name and 3FC name. All gifts must reach the person prior to a predetermined day in December. Then on a predetermined day in December we all will open our ornament. We will post a description of what we got and thank the sender.

We send the packages anonymously (no hints in the return address), and don't open them until the big day. The anticipation of looking at the mystery box and wondering who sent it, is almost as much fun as getting the ornament! Last year I got an ornament from Australia! And the year before, from Boston.

It doesn't have to be expensive. Just something you really like and think they would. It can be homemade or store bought.

I believe past participators had a great time with it. If you are interested please send me a PM.
Ok, gotta go WI - I've been fighting these 2 pounds for the last 3 weeks. PLEASE be gone today!

Heather - If you remember the original "slim fast" plan or go to the website, it was a shake two times a day. I wouldn't get hooked on it, but if it's just for 2 or 3 days because you know something is coming up, I would go for it. Believe me, your body will let you know if that was the wrong thing to do.

Went to WI today lost 6.2 lbs total in 4 days I tried to switch from purple to blue to increase the food intake. I exercise 5 times a week however my counselor wants me to wait at least a week. She thinks purple is working for me. We'll see. I'm getting really sick of LA Lite bars already. How can people stand to eat two a day for an extended amount of time?
How do I move my tracker to reflect more weight lost?

Hi All! Well, I lost Biggest Loser again. Came in second though, behind that amazing cousin of mine. This is my month, dang it! I am GOING to do better. I had to help DH with a massive problem at his shop last night. I did not get to bed until 5:30 am, then up at 7:30 for daycare to start. He is sleeping now. I am going to wake him at 2:00 and he is going to babysit daycare for me so that I can sleep until dinner. He offered to let me sleep first, but he is so tired, emotionally shot, and feeling crappy, that I insisted he sleep first. He is so stressed right now. We found out yesterday that our landlord at our shop is making us move into another shop near ours because the business next to us want to expand into our building, and the rent is going up $75.00 a month. Then our bedliner machine breaks down last night. DH is talking about throwing in the towel, closing the dang thing, and being with it. After last night, I kind of wish that he would.

Sommer- Big hugs going out to you sweetie. Those lbs will gone soon, and you can focus on lots more losses and victories.

Princess--I miss the singing to sleep--so sweet. No idea on the 2 shakes per day--try it and see. Just make sure you are getting enough calories all around.

startingover--You are doing so great with the plan you are on I wouldn't try anything new just yet. I was on Gold from Dec. 30 until just about a week ago when I started exercising. I personally love the lites and have no problem eating 2 per day--just me--love my treats. If you are on Purple you are already getting the extra 1/2 protein I get because of the larger portions, so the only difference is on blue you would get a starch whereas on purple you get an extra veggie. Good luck!

Katie--August will be your month to win. Sounds like a rough night--glad you will get some sleep soon. Hope everything works out with the business, building, and machinery--you have a lot on your plate right now.

IF there is a downfall to this site it's a case of "overinformation" instead of just letting the program work for you. I am grateful for the tips and tricks but sometimes I wish I didn't know some of the in's and out's--too much time for regret on my part. Oh well--the check was written long ago--I have to deal with it. I doubt I could have done it on my own anyway.

Hello All

Just touching base. I have been crazy busy, went to see the In Laws for a long weekend (6hrs away). I kept OP fairly well, not perfect but okay.

When we got back we found we had not had electricity a majority of the weekend. It was a good thing we were gone, as it was sunny and 112 with the heat index! Unfortunaltey, our freezer foods had to go bye-bye and our pool was green with algea! Oh well, not much we can do about that.

I think I need to get some bars, Luna maybe. I have been using fitday and I am around 1100 calories a day without the bars. For me personally I think that is to low to lose weight. I haven't jumped on the scale for since Thursday, so I guess we will see tomorrow.

Congrats to all of you "losers" out there.
Good luck to all of the beginners, you will find your way

Have a great day
Krystal

Had WI earlier. I am up 1.2. I hate to see what next week's scale will look like after my trip to Buffalo this weekend. I can't wait for me to get back into school again. Then I know that the weight will be coming off again because it will be easier for me.

Lea Ann - Congrats on getting into the 150's!

Sommer - Great to have you back! It sounds like you had a good time in Colorado. It sounds like you are right back on track again today!

startingovernow - Congrats on your loss!

Katie - I hope you were able to get caught up on some sleep today. I don't know how you do it -- being up all night and then taking care of everybody else's kids for daycare.

Lori - Congrats on your loss!!! Wahooo!!

Joan - Happy dance! Both scale and NSV!!

Well, my COD asked (as usual) if I was getting in both bars every day. Told her no, that I was out, and wasn't in a position to buy any. She asked if I was substituting anything. Said no (I'm having a hard enough time getting in what I'm SUPPOSED to, without adding any substitutions). And I asked if I should be. She said no, but she was referring to how some people use power bars, etc., and how that's not good, not the same nutritionally, I just agreed, and said no I haven't been.
Well at least now I know how my COD feels about substituting products!

She was very supportive though. She said she's there, and will do her part, and for me to try to get back on track. Understands about the heat, etc.

DH & I stopped at McDonald's after WI. The Assistant Manager from LAWL was there. I guess it's a good thing I ordered a salad & fruit, instead of the double cheeseburger that I really wanted!! LOL

Hope everyone had a great day!!
