One of the changes I am noticing on the board is your ATTITUDES.
What a great benefit from this program.
We are begining to see the person that has been hidden away for such a long time. I think she amazes us all. When you look into the mirror you now see who you have been all along.
GOOD FOR US!
Wishing you all a happy day, and remember this good feeling the next time you are tempted.
Good morning, Lady. You are the chick who has the best attitude.
I have been a bit down about gaining 3 pounds during the Fair. I weighed this morning (I'm an addict) and am catching your positive attitude when I said to myself "If I'm not down today, I will be down tomorrow!" We are so inclined to put ourselves down and, after 40 years of yo-yo dieting, I am an expert on that!
Today is a day without musts or shoulds! I will make a run to town for groceries - no veggies as my garden is now in production. I truly thought it would never happen but the zucchini, snow peas and yellow beans are started. In a week or so, I'll be complaining about having trouble keeping up with the flow.
I'm off for coffee on the deck with the dogs and then a walk down to the Lake before it gets too hot. Today will definitely be an AC and wading pool day. Hershey gets in the pool and sort of wallows until she is cooled down. She looks like a big black hippo. (The only must for today is weigh her at the vet. I am not expecting a loss but who knows. Maybe she needs Lady to talk to her about attitude! )
Have a beautiful day on The Beach, Beauties.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
I typed my post, and then did something (I don't know what!) and it disappeared!! So I'm going to try to recreate what I typed....and if another message from me shows up someplace weird, that's why.
I'm so glad yesterday is over. My boss does not have the best people skills, and sometimes she doesn't treat people with the respect that they deserve. Well, yesterday it was my turn to be the target of her "skills". I was angry and upset with her, and my feelings were also hurt (I can tend to be overly sensitive sometimes). My usual response to such situations is to sit and ruminate while reaching for comfort food (sugar!) to try to make myself feel better (which of course it never does). But yesterday I took a 15 minute break and went for a walk around the parking lot (while still ruminating about it). While I was still upset with her, I did feel better about myself.
I pulled out one of my new Pilates tapes last night, and watched it! My next step is to actually try it. It actually was really interesting, and I think once I get the hang of it I'll enjoy it.
Good Morning everyone! I'm expecting a great day at the Beach today. I weigh myself tomorrow and I don't want a couple of little screw-ups this week to get me. I actually turned down a Pepperidge Farm Cho/Macadamia Cookie yesterday
Well, it's 6:30 a.m. here..got to get my DD to Volleyball Camp and then sit around for some furniture to be delivered "somewhere between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m." Don't you love those exact times?!
Have a good one everybody

Hello to all newbies and anyone I might have missed...
The list is sooooo long....and it's GREAT!!!
Here we go again...did Atkins, WW, South Beach, Body for Life....now calorie counting.
I think this is truely the way to go..fingers crossed.
Good Morning to all the peeps on the beach!!! Well I have made it through two days and am beggining day 3. I do feel sea sick from the beach...a little light-headedness and headaches..I was feeling all smug thinking I would bypass that since I gave up sugar and refined carbs two years ago, but I guess not. When does it go away? I am still sticking to it though. Some of your stories have been inspirational and are helping me stay on track. Have a fab day!!!
