Good Weigh In Wednesday Morning!
Whoa, is it hot out there again today! Was going to take the day off from my usual walk/jog but decided to just do a walk with my Powerbelt and not over exert myself, took me long today, 1hr 1 min and 17 seconds! Better than nothing though. Looking forward to jogging tomorrow, we're supposed to finally get a bit of cooler weather. Sometimes I don't know whether to believe the weather report or not, seems when they say we're getting cooler weather we don't, or if I blink, I miss it! Today it's suppose to be a record high, may hit 90-doesn't that all out suck!
Sorry about chat last night. I totally forgot that they had said that they were changing to another chat format, which I guess hasn't taken place and the old one is out. There's not even a link to the old chat board any more. I will e-mail SUZANNE and ask her what's going to be with the chat so we know before next week.
ELI and I went to see REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES
I really didn't know what to expect as they had compared it somewhat to GREEK WEDDING. It wasn't funny as GW is, but I think the comparison was with family. It wasn't bad, just different. The mother in the movie, OMG, she reminded me of my Grandmother, commented on EVERYONE'S weight-they must of used my GM as a consulter for the movie!
Today he's off once again, yes, you read it right, two days in a row! We are trying to plan a day with his DD Denise and the two older people that are his customers from the old store, Minnie and Morris. He wants to go to Carrabas for dinner. Not sure how I feel about that today, guess I can see just how strict I can be when I want to! With 2 1/2 weeks of being stellar in my eating, I'm afraid to do anything but stay OP since it's so hard for me to get back on track if I do cheat-guess we'll see, won't we!
Well, WIW isn't good or bad, it's the same as last week, sitting at 126. Since tomorrow is mid-cycle for me, I'm hoping that I'll have a loss afterwards. Who knows, I'm just happy I don't see any gains!
The WEEKEND IN ORLANDO IN JANAURY
looks like we'll have a nice crowd coming. I think we have 10-11 positives so far, and I'm hoping that number will grow. Anyone have any good ideas for Friday night-whether you are coming or not, if you have any ideas, please e-mail them to me. I have some but would welcome more!!!
Boy, you gals were sure as heck busy on the board when I was gone yesterday, lots of catching up to do, which I better get going on before I have to get in the shower...
ZANNE, CONGRATS on securing that pound loss! They now say that Halloween is the second biggest holiday in the US-can't imagine that, but that's what "they" say. I too like learning about other cultures/celebrations that happen elsewhere. I have a friend in the UK and she would talk about Boxing Day each year. I never asked her about it, just assumed they were really in to boxing over there and celebrated a day for boxers. Finally, I asked her "what exactly do you do on boxing day?" Well, boy, did I feel stupid AND wrong to find out it had nothing to do with boxing or boxers as I thought it to be, but was a celebration to do with giving! About CHEERIOS, I think it's the whole grain ones they say are okay, but why they are okay, I don't know. I surely won't eat them. Remember, there's quite a few things that are contridictory in the SB book, and I think this may be one of them. BUT, if it's falls under the 3 gram rule, well, then I guess they'd be okay-but I look farther in to things, as the ingredients, and if it has things non-SB LEGAL, then I tend to stay away from it, even if it's okay as far as the sugar goes. I'm sure it won't kill you though if you had some in moderation.
SERENE, glad to see you were down a pound yesterday! CONGRATS! Girl, if anyone can tell you, I can, the water, much as I hate drinking it, DOES make a difference! Try flavoring it if you don't like it as is. How did things go with Joel's surgery yesterday. Sorry, I totally forgot to ask you about it last night.
JACKK, do wish we could meet up but understand you'll be rushing to get on the ship. Suppose to be great weather this weekend. Are you ready? Did you get all the clothes you wanted to buy? I will e-mail you my cell phone number. We are usually up that way on Sunday's anyhow, so who knows!
TRISH, I can understand your DH's apprehension, but as you said, he doesn't understand. I hope you can work on him about coming. I'd be happy to talk to him, really. Maybe you could come a little earlier and stay in Miami with me and go up to Orlando with us. Possibly the fares would be cheaper to Miami? See what you can find going in to either Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, or even Orlando if you just want to come in for the get together. I'm sure at that time of year there has to be something cheap out there. Let me know what you find. We'd love for you to come-it's like seeing old friends even though you've never met before!
DENISE, during these hot times are the times I wish I had a treadmill, or belonged to the gym. I like going outside, even though I have to fear for my life with the drivers down here, not to mention the pollution I breath running on busy roads! I am so impressed with your DM! I would love to meet you both! Maybe she can give me some pointers, as I sure as heck can use some. Only 2 months to go and I haven't done anything close to training for this. I'll probably just "wing it!" You are more than welcome to come join us in the van for the ride to Disney. I'm the furthest south, so it's just ELI and I. Kids are going to be staying home with my Mom, they have school, and I don't take my kids out for anything (both have perfect attendance). I'm just hoping ELI can get the 3 days off, otherwise, it's just me! Yes, you'd need to take Friday off. I plan on leaving quite early so I can get up there early as well. I plan on leaving Orlando on Sunday around 5ish, or thereabouts, so I can get home at a decent time. Anyhow, I do have your number and will give you a call this week sometime to say "HI" and to discuss the trip, among other things. You are right on with your story about being six again, MEN DON'T LISTEN!!!!!
SEF, at least I don't feel all alone with my computer problems! Hope yours are easier to fix than mine. What's up with all that bad weather you're getting? Hope it lightens up for you!
TRANQUIL, that's great that you are down to 241, before you know it you'll be in the 130's! I'm STILL waiting for that e-mail with fish-boys picture so I can check him out!!!
HEART hope today is better for you! Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try to stay focued. You can do it! Take each day an hour at a time.
BOB, how did things go at WW last night? ELI wants to know how many of the canisters you want. Will have to call you so we can get plans for the RIU started and you can call your boyfriend Johnny.
MONET, glad the Dr. saw you were getting better and is still keeping an eye out for you. Do what he says and don't over do things. Just keep in mind you want to be up to par for the Orlando trip!!!
GATOR, thanks for posting that article, it was very good and solidifies yet another reason to stay away from sugar. Thanks for the offer for the get together on Saturday, but I think we'd probably take advantage of a late breakfast at the hotel since it's so good (and FREE) and then do dinner-maybe a snack along the way. Just an idea, nothing for sure-but will let you and the others know, as well as decide. I'm hoping to find something that we can all do and enjoy Saturday afternoon. If you have any ideas, would you e-mail me? I loved the boat trip last time. I e-mailed SOLSHINE to ask her if she had any ideas-hope to hear from her.
MEL, sorry you won't be coming to DW in Jan-we'll miss you. Glad to see your post-hop on the board a bit more, we miss not seeing you around like we use to!
GRACIOUS, I'm impressed! All your shopping done-you are my idol!
MUSIC, CONGRATS on keeping that 1/2lb off! Sorry to hear about your friends house, how terrible. Do they know what caused it? At least no one was hurt, that's the most important thing.
CHERYL, CONGRATS on this weeks great loss! Can't you just taste teh 190's! I'll be doing that happy dance with you when you hit 199! It's just around the corner. Keep up the great work!
Okay, I'm outta here for now. I'll try to check in tonight after AMAZING RACE if the computer is free.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
