Default Thursday Chick Chat

Good morning all my new friends!

Did anyone watch the eclipse last night? It's frigid cold here so my son and I kept going out, looking at it (we couldn't see it from the windows) and coming back in every ten minutes or so... it was absolutely breathtaking!!!!

I FINALLY seemed to get over this hump of not being able to lose weight... I'm down another pound this morning... but I'm NOT getting excited. It's these twelve pounds I keep losing and gaining back. Once I get under the thresh hold of where I usually start gaining back, then we'll celebrate!!!!! But the past several months I couldn't seem to get under 189... (Yes, I gained a lot back). this am I'm down to 187.... when I see 175 I'll celebrate, cause I haven't seen that in like ten years . But thats why I joined curves!!! Although this week I'll only get to go two days, yesterday and today, it's worth it. last week I went four days. I'll be walking the dog, even if it is frigid cold and can only go for 15 minutes. Poor Jade, she's getting cabin fever!!!! (Especially when the neighbor dog comes a courting!)

Good morning!

Loriann, you were so fortunate to be able to see the eclipse, it was too cloudy here. Congratulations on dropping another pound, it's always so exciting to finally see the needle on the scale go downwards!

We got a little snow yesterday, just enough to make the roads slippery on my drive home. If they didn't live way out in the country, it wouldn't be so bad, but the roads out there are hilly and winding, and they can get pretty dicey.
Oh well, it's supposed to be a beautiful sunny day today, before another storm hits us tomorrow.

Loriann, it can be discouraging sometimes, but it WILL come off! Just keep plugging along.

Missed the eclipse last night..forgot about it...but it was storming here, so I probably couldn't have seen it anyway.

Nothing exiting happening here. Still battling some pain in my foot from my "exercise" accident on Monday. Looks like my nail is going to come off too...just in time for sandal season! I'm having to wear flip flops to school.
Hoping to get back to the barre by this weekend cause I miss it and had really gotten in to it.

Last night I wanted "something" but not sure what and ended up making a frittata with a new pan I had ordered. It was so yummy...almost like a cross between pizza and quiche. very good!

Morning Cottage...we were posting at the same time...stay warm!!

Hope you all have a great day...

good morning all, it was storming here also so i couldn't see the eclipse. i did get to see the solar eclipse in Hawaii when I was in the sixth grade (i think). I have pics of it. My grandpa was a perfessional photographer and took pics for all of us to keep. That was so interesting and really exciting to see. The weather here is yucky. It stormed half the day and it's supposed to storm all day today.

femme-I think whatever I'm getting here is moving to you.

Everyone else-Have a wonderful day

Me-I just can't get past the lower 200's. i was doing sooo good then the weekend came and blew it. Now I can't get in the mindset again of losing the weight. I am so frustrated. I take some energy pills because if not, I won't have the energy to move around. I also take B12 vitamins to help with my metabolism (which I don't know how many mg you're supposed to have in a day). I'm getting so frustrated with my weight. I want to be down at least 10 pounds by easter. I want to reach goal by May or June. But I did sit on my DH lap yesterday for the first time since I've lost weight and he said that he can feel that I've lost weight. He said that I am alot lighter even if it is just 10 pounds.

Yeah, that made me feel good for him to say something like that. He usually wouldn't. Maybe that'll help me get the mindset again. I want to be able to sit on his lap and really be lighter.

Mornin' all! Wow, at 8:00, there's already 7 posts...you people are early birds!

Loved the lunar eclipse...and the way it brought my neighbors out of their houses so we could visit and laugh together. We have an amazing neighborhood full of wonderful people, but in the winter it's so cold that we barely get a chance to wave at each other before heading for the warmth of our houses. It was crystal clear last night and we were amazed at how many stars we could see without the moon's light. When I went to bed, the eclipse was over, and there was an actual patch of moonlight on the floor of our hallway from the skylight above. Wow! That's one bright moon!

Loriann, I love the name Jade for your dog--how sweet! Yeah, our pup has cabin fever too. We've been throwing her toys down our long, skinny hallway for her to chase and fetch...it keeps her busy and active. But she can only do it for so long, and after a nap, she's circling the walls again! Congrats on the loss--I know how it feels when you're losing the same weight again, but you're going in the right direction, and that's powerful!

Wowee, Cottage, it's pretty stormy out there! We haven't gotten much. Hope you can stay home in the next storm...

Cat, I'm so sorry about your poor foot! I don't know what you'd attach it to, but last year I saw some press on toenails! You never know... I hope you can use the bar again soon!

TK, I'm so sorry that you're feeling so down. You know, whether you believe in The Secret or not, it does seem to be true that a negative frame of mind can make less positive things come into your life. Try to focus on the positive things (like that wonderful lap NSV...I still can't sit on DH's lap without making his legs go numb! ) and look for changes in your life--can you go up stairs without breathing hard? Can you exercise more or faster or longer? Can you do fun things, like hiking or dancing, that you couldn't do comfortably before? After all, that 200 is just a number on a scale. If you have to, try weighing in kg, or measuring in the English method of "stones" (no joke!) so that the numbers are different and don't frustrate you. Also, think about whether you're "ready" to go below 200. I made it to "ONEderland" several years ago and then bounced around between 198 and 203 for over a year and a half. Everytime I'd get below 200, I'd overeat till I was above it again. I think it really scared me and I just wasn't ready to get that low. Can't say more...still working on that, but it's something worth thinking about. BTW, are you measuring yourself? It's amazing how much it can help to see how many inches you've lost. Sometimes the scale doesn't move at all, but the inches do!

Me:
Off to make some tea and oatmeal. My throat is SO dry this morning, no matter how much water I drink...it's like I spent last night in the desert with a bag full of dessicants in my mouth! We have a humidifier turned up as high as it can go on our furnace, too!

Had a really good time at Faith Formation last night, though my back was hurting me in the pews. I brought an orange and slice of cheese for the break time, which was a good idea since those goodies looked yummm-ee! They mentioned that next week they'll have a treat to eat for all of us, during their talk. I hope I can figure some way around that...

Last day of work over break week. I'm hoping to get some niddly things done. Off to the gym after work, unless my friend calls. She has a tiny dog and we have a tiny dog and we've been hoping that we could get them together for a "playdate!" She loves to walk her dog but feels uncomfortable walking her at night, so I offered to walk with her. I hope it works well--our dog is very amiable, but I've never tried walking her with another dog. We'll see! We'll either do that after work today or sometime tomorrow.

A friend of mine who was due March 4 with her first child, is going to now deliver by C-section on 2/26. Her baby is huge (over 9 pounds at 35 weeks!) and she's been tested extensively for gestational diabetes, but doesn't have it. Apparently, she and DH just breed big 'uns! Anyways, there's no way she can have her little boy naturally, so they're scheduled for next Tuesday. I'm SOOO excited for them! If I have time tomorrow between the dog walking and possible coffee date with a friend, I'll see if I can go over to her place and help her get things ready.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Morning Cottage

Cat take care of that foot - A few years ago I fell down a flight of concrete stairs and luckily the only thing that happened was I ripped my big toe nail off (very painful) and yes it too was 2 weeks before my cruise

TK thats an NSV any way you look at it

Laurie a 2/26 baby thats awesome. Thats my fur babys b-day and my cousins b-day. My thoughts & prayers for her smooth delivery

I was up at 5am this morning and on the treadmil doing a 15 minute high intensity work out and I am glad I did it as I feel like I have soooooo much energy. This evening dh & I are going to buy me a heart rate monitor, I did some reviews on here but any advice from you guys would be great

Hope yoy gals have a great day!

That's a great NSV, Gonna! You're an inspiration...I wish I could get up enough vim to get up so early...I think it would make me feel so alive!

TK, there are no dumb questions!!! Thanks for being brave and asking!
