Talking Calling all Floridians!!

Hey FL people! I just wanted to see who was from the Sunshine state...

I'm in Inverness, and go to the Beverly hills office (it's a satellite office out of Ocala only open on Thursdays). So... roll call! Where are you all from?

Hi Ladies,

I am in Orange Park/Jacksonville area. I have really enjoyed reading these posts but have not felt I had alot to add due to being new to MRC and due to recent days eating off program.

Any advice you ladies can share about eating on program after a week or so of non program eating would be appreciated. I am struggling with not wanting the carbs again !

That's what we are here for, Bath Sky! Each day is a new day - decide that today you will eat only On Program. By saying 'struggling with not wanting cabs again" are you meaning you are tired of salads? What specifically are you not wanting to eat and what are you eating instead? We are here because we all are struggling and we can help each other. I'm glad you're here too. jeanette

Hi Ladies and thanks for the note,

I am very tired of salads, and low fat dressing and in general want to eat all my regular comfort foods, like chick fil a nuggets, potato chips, reeses candy bars....I could go on and on. I do not enjoy cooking and I am into fast meals, eating on plan takes alot more effort. I know that I would loose faster/more if I were eating on plan more often, but boy, I am finding I am such an emotional eater.

I worked in Southborough as a temp when I was initially looking for work! LOL! I totally know where that is. When I found a nursing job, I worked for Fallon Clinic in Worcester (which is everywhere around the Worcester area and surrounding towns). Southboro has grown quite a bit in the last few years. Too funny!

OMG I usually have to tell people that it the next town over from Framingham heading west on Rt 9. I use to use the Volvo dealership that was on the corner of Rt. 9 and Oak Hill Rd. as the marker to know yes, your there. My folks are still there, they live on Rt. 85 (aka Marlboro Rd) just north of St. Mark's Private School.

To torture them back in April I sent my daughter (she is 23 and had just graduated FSU in Dec.) for 2 weeks to help my mom out. She had her knee replaced for the 2nd time and my dad is trying to run a business and she needed help. It was kind of funny listening to them complain about one another... but everyone survived.

They have been bugging me ( and my older brother in NC) to come home for a visit, but when I go home it either hotter than **** or there a snow storm. I am thinking about making in trip in October sometime just for a weekend. Love my folks just can't stand the rest of the family so it will be unannounced. It's better that way.

Hey Kccross,
I was born in Daytona Beach, moved to Flagler County when I was 8, went to Bunnell Elementary school, Belle Terre (Buddy Taylor) Middle school and graduated from Flagler Palm Coast HS. Got Married and moved back to DB when I was 18, then Port Orange 1 year later. Lived there for 11 years before I moved to Savannah, GA 4 yrs ago for school. It's a small world!
