Amy- Oh my! Girl you are really going for it. 6 hrs worth of Tae Bo! Whhhooohooo I think you should be proud of yourself for already doing 45 min today and going for another 30! I am trying to just get my butt off my chair. I had a rough week last week and didn't quite make it to my goal- but I got over half way there! n the 4 pounds GONE!!!

Jen- so glad you are here

Mindee- is the level II ultrasound very detailed like the 3d kind? Just curious, heck when my kids were born they didn't even have the 3d kind- my youngest will be 14 in May and my oldest will be 16 in July- DANG IT!!!
Anyhow hope baby cooperates this time and you can know who you are expecting. Kinda hard to plan for when you don't know if you are having a boy or a girl. :-)


Had my bloodwork today and now we just wait. I have to work on Tues and Thurs this week, not sure what I am going to do on Wed. maybe I can come up with something fun? LOL doubtful... maybe it will be nice enough to go for a walk, haven't checked the forecast for the week yet. Anywho.,... have a good day ladies.

Arghhhhh! I'm having a weird day today. Coming off of NEVER paying attention to the way I feel or what I eat. Today I'm stressed out and normally I would eat some chips or even go get myself a big ol' chocolate bar and i'd hide under a blanket and maybe sleep it off. But today i'm feeling it. I already had my meal replacement bar and then I had a WASA bread...and then I had a healthy choice fudgecicle. And then I sat down with a plate of baby carrots and some balsimic dressing. I'm not hungry enough for lunch (what is suppose to be a chicken salad) but I'm feeling anxious. And it's driving me crazy. Partially my kids and partially my husband home 'trying to get things DONE'. So finally he went out to get a for sale sign for our van. (something we've been wanting to sell for some time now) and I can breathe some. I have a lot to do but I have so much on my mind....my kids and my business stuff and then having my husband irratating me...arghhhh...hahaha


So, what is the key? Breathe and get through it...this too will pass? I don't know. I thought I was going to be this militant soldier throughout this entire process....

Tina

Hello Ladies...

A big to you JEN! Looking forward to getting to know you.

AMY...WTG on your loss this week!

MARTI...did you amd James get out and look at houses or just drive-bys. We did a lot of drive-bys, lol. That's how we found the house we are buying. Actually, went online and saw some and then went out driving around. And yes, you are right...the housing prices are a lot different from here and there, a lot cheaper here. You definitely get more house for the money. But I know you and James will fine your perfect house...you'll know it when you see it. And WTG on your loss this week. Hey, a loss is a loss and no matter how big or small, they all add up so to you!

VANN...ditto what I said to Marti about your loss as well and on your loss! I always say, the slower the better. I am definitely the turtle in losing weight. Seems for every step forward I take one or two back. But I am not getting discouraged. Have a safe trip.

TINA...wow, WTG on your loss as well. You are doing great! I'm not really a journaling person. I've tried but just don't keep up with it like I should. But what I do do which is sort of like journaling is...I print out calendars off of AOL and I keep track of my exercise for the day. As well as how much water I drank, if I took my vitamins and my WI's and measurements. Then also, I keep track of my food and points on the WW handouts.

JUDY...I keep fat-free pudding and sugar-free jello around just for times like that. Also, the WW ice cream sandwiches which are only 2 points. Didn't help though this passed week...had a major binge and it showed, lol. I think you are the only person I know that has kept anything for so long. Even my friends didn't even keep their wedding dress! About when to WI...I weigh in only once a week and measure once a month. If I weighed any more than that it would drive me mad. But I think Tina?? said it best...you just have to find what works best for you.

SUE...I didn't start any packing after all. We were waiting to get the contract back from the people buying this place. To tell ya the truth, I was starting to worry. But I heard from our realtor about an hour ago and she has it. So now we have 15 days to get packed Plenty of time...I think this is going to go by really fast too! I am keeping my fingers crossed that you guys have a fast sell on your LV home. I bet it does go fast...LV is a fast growing area for sure. You know, after living in CA over 1/2 my life and then living here in the midwest I don't think I could ever go back to all the traffic, pollution and noise of the big city.

JULES...well, I am glad to hear DH is doing better with each day. I bet he is bored out of his mind though.

JANE...thank you! We didn't go to the show after all. V decided he wanted to go see the new house and get some ideas and measurements for the windows to get an idea of what blinds will cost. He likes to plan ahead and is so organized...glad he is. I used to be but not so much anymore, not like I used to be. Glad you guys had fun at Katie's party. You know, I too love to hear the kids talk about the "old days" even though they are not so "old" lol. I love looking at pictures too. So...the tickets for Universal & DW don't expire I take it? I didn't know that and it comes in handy especially for when they are on sale. I know how you guys love going and have fun doing so! One day I will get back there Disneyland that is.

MINDEE...hopefully the curls do grow back. I know with DS#1 & 2 they both had curly hair when little. Jasons is still curly if he lets it get long and Joshs is wavy. Now DD...I let her hair grwo from the time she was born 'til pre-school when I decided to cut her curls off. Hers wasn't as curly as the boys and her curls never came back. My mom said the same about my hair. Anyway, hope you are feeling well today.

JODI...did your cousins wife find a group online? SHe might just have to do a search online and try a lot before finding one. There has to be lots online...I mean there's a group for just about anything else isn't there? I know when I lost our baby that's what I did and I found lots of babyloss groups...I made lots of friends as well and still frequent a few of them. I know she will find one that is very supportive. We didn't have a computer when DH#1 passed so I turned to books and let me tell ya...they really helped. It was nice to know that what I was feeling was normal for what I was going thru. If your cousins wife wants to talk I would love to chat with her...you can give her my e-mail address...don't know how I could help except that I've been there, done that. Hoping all is well with you today!

HI to everyone else Hope I didn't miss anyone trying to play catch-up.

Today was WI for me and I am sad to say I am up a pound. Okay so not so sad because I totally expected it. IT seems like every time V and I go out for dinner it puts me in a tailspin that I can't get out of until WI day. Guess because I go back and look at the week and see how I messed up. Well, I didn't have to go back this time because I already knew it was a bad week for me. I need to do something to keep myself from getting in this mode...where I just don't want to exercise or follow the plan. Does anyone ever feel this way? If so what do you do? Too, it was a busy week and instead of planning, and taking the time to fix something it was just easier to eat out and I know I have to quit doing that. I have to! Anyway...I am not upset that I gained because as I said I knew I would. You can't eat out and eat junk and lose, duh, lol! Today is a new day though and I am back on track. I did my 2 mile WATP video and walked a little over a mile on the treadmill and my eating has been on plan so yay for me. This week will be a better week for me. Anywho...getting ready to go jump in the shower before WW meeting. We will eat out this evening but it will be Subway, nothing fatty or junk. Then the realtor is coming over so we can sign the paper and it is officially on! We are moving the 21st!

Okay, sorry for the very long post ladies...was just trying to catch up with everyone and I don't like to leave anyone out. Hopefully I didn't.

Take care ladies and I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!

Cristina--DH is definitely hating not being able to use the right thumb--puts a damper on almost everything. Sorry about the weigh in. One of the girls in my WW class said that she went out to eat just once a week. She used all her extra points for the week on that night and kept below or right at her daily limit the rest of the week. Weigh in day is Friday morning for our group and her night out was Saturday--don't know if that would make a difference or not. Being sick and not going to my meeting gave me a small gain too, but I am back on target again.

Tina--I have had the most weird and stressful day at work--one of my callers was an elderly gentleman who told e a dirty joke--I used to have an ederly guy when I worked at a convenience store that picked me out all the employees to tell dirty limericks too. It embarrassed his poor wife so bad. Chips call me when I am stressed--I can't keep any in the house!! St John's Wort helps me calm down sometimes. The doctor put me on a pill for anxiety but I don't have any motivation for exercise when I take it and I seem to gain when I am on it. I don't need any help with that.

Judy--WTG on the bike and with the exercise!!

Jodi--hope the blood work gives you some answers..will be thinking of you.

Have a great nite everyone--I have to go pick up my son from his class at the local tech school. GF was suppossed to tonite but she's home sick. He was so sweet he made her soup and was taking care of her from the time he got home til he left for class.l

Just a quick note to say hello. I am absolutely exhausted! I didn't get nearly enough sleep last night, then ran around town most of the day. Tomorrow will be fun, though - lunch out with "the gang". That's what we call ourselves, lol.

A side note to Cristina - the Universal tickets don't expire until 6 days after the first use, so we bought those while the price is still so low. But we aren't buying the Dis tix until we get there, since they do expire, unless you pay extra for them not to. I'd love to visit Disneyland in CA some day!

To all the others, have a good evening and I'll check in sometime tomorrow.

<--- for all of you.

hello ladies!!!

I remember seeing some personals on the last thread, but my mind is drawing a blank on them at this time.

Jane~ When are you planning on going to Universal? I went there back in 1999 with my parents and younger siblings.

4amy~ wtg on the 4lbs! you will hit your marks in no time. actually, I don't know how detailed the level II is. I haven't had one before. I am only having this one because when I went for my BIG ultrasound, they couldn't get clear enough pictures of the heart, kidneys, four chambers of the heart, the top lip, and the cord insertion into the placenta. I would love to have the 4d one, that is the one where you can see what the baby will look like AND you can see the baby moving around. The 3d is the same as the 4d but without the movement part. I hope the baby cooperates as well. We already have the bedding so, we are good either way. My mom gave me pink crib bedding after my sister died in November. And we still have the baby looney tunes bedding from the boys. so either way we are good.

Tina~ sounds like you are having a rough day. I know you have the strength and courage to make it through all the hardships. this too shall pass, as they say.

Cristina~ Yup, I am feeling well today. Brandon actually slept in his own bed until 5am on Monday. Then came into our room and fell asleep until 9am, so I am just thankfully that he wasn't up and ready for the day. I loved the curls on both boys. Brandon's hair gets what we call the "grandpa munster" curl. My dad's hair gets the grandpa munster curls when his hair needs a hair cut, so Brandon's hair does the same thing.

Jules~ what a gentlemen you have their! how are you feeling?

Evening ladies- Quickie here. I managed to walk Sun. (I might have reported that?) DH and I walked 35 minutes today. My food is still out of control...but we will be home next week and I can get serious. I went through magazines today that I had collected, cut out recipes, diet tips and some exercises. I am going to make a notebook when I get home. I am also going to either journal or calendar my progress. DH made a remark today that hurt my feelings and made me realize that I HAVE to do this. Even though I know he will lose faster and with less exercise. Grrrrr. MEN!

Mom got sick tonight when we went to the casino and we rushed back home. She has been vomiting and cramping terribly. She is finally asleep, so I am going to hit the hay...be prepared if she needs me in the night.

Bye for now.....

Evening ladies--

I just got done w/my power walking. I feel energized and ready to go......until I lay my head down on that pillow!! Once thing I noticed when I started walking.....I fall asleep a lot faster.

Anyway...I got my walk in and I ate decent...so all is good this part of the world! I even journalled my food and exercise. How good is that??

Amy--A friend at work just got some Tae Bo workout DVD's....or maybe it was Boot Camp?? I don't remember, but she's looking forward to trying them out. I told her to review them for me and if she likes them, I may try them.

Jodi--I'm anxious to have my blood drawn friday. It'll be interesting to see if I can get fit in. We have over 400 workers.....and I'm not sure how many plan on getting tested. Ought to be interesting.

Tina--I'm sorry you had such a stressful day. Days like that just wind me up. Which is why I choose to do my walks at night...after work. It seems to calm me. Maybe you can do that?? Even if for only 10mins....just to help put your mind at ease? Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

Cristina--We found houses online and then drove around to take a look at them. One house that I was interested in but had no photo.....well heck, there was a reason for that...it hasn't even been built yet!! We want to go to a couple open houses next time.

Jules--You've raised yourself a good boy!! Taking care of his GF while sick shows you what a kind man he's become.

Jane--Hello! Go get some sleep....catch up w/us later.

Mindee--Do you have a feeling of what your carrying? Does it feel like a girl?? Should we all think pink? I never was able to tell or have a feel of what I was having. With Jhanai...I thought I was having another boy.....and out came this adorable little girl!!

Sue--Awww...I'm sorry DH made a remark that upset you. Did he realize that he did? I hope your mom starts to feeling better soon. So many illnesses going around lately.

Hello to everyone else out there!!
Marykate, Tammy, Vann, Jen, Sassy, Michelle....heck I know there are more of you out there...just can't remember all the names!! But hello and stop by soon to check in.

Well I need to clean up and get to bed. I want to get up early and do my YBB workout. Soon I should be able to hop onto my bike and bike a couple miles before work....looking forward to that!! Hope this weather cooperates long enough for that.

G'night!

Hello everyone! Doing a flyby as I have GOT to get my butt to work- lol

Marti- Surely all 400 people won't want thier bloodwork done. How many hours are they going to do it? Maybe it won't be a big deal getting in, they will prob have several people drawing blood and it doesn't take long if they can actually find the veins. Yesterday I showed the girl the little scab where the other one had gotten blood last week. I have had bad experiences with blood draws. Anyhow, she went into that spot and I barely felt a thing. Either they are better than they used to be or my skin is tougher- lol Last week was the first time I didn't have to lay down or pass out when getting my blood done! That says a lot.

Well I need to get going. Have some errands to run and going to just do one of my stores instead of a bunch cause I didn't feel well when I went to get up this morning and I went back to bed. C-yall later.

Good Morning ladies!

Did do my YBB this morning...trying to catch up on my laundry and I plan on quickly vacuuming the bedroom. (Nice having wood floors everywhere else!)

Plan is to eat sensibly (<--I'm I spelling that wrong????) and to power walk as soon as I get home tonight...worry about dinner afterwards. Which I think will be a veggie burger.

Jodi--I'm sure only a hand full of employee's will take advantage of the event Friday. It's in the morning and it's only for 2hrs! So I have plans to get up and going bright and early so I can get in.

Ok ladies....I hope you have a great Tuesday. I'm already looking forward to the weekend, wishing that this sunshine would last all the way through....but the forecast calls for dark icky clouds and rain.
It's off to work I go here in an hour......time to vacuum!!

Talk to you all later!

Good morning. A sunny LV day going on out there. I walked the dog for Mom this morning and it was a little cool, but felt good. Mom is feeling some better this morning, but a little shaky. We are going to get some boxes and pack a few items today.
One week till going home.....
Have a good day everyone!

P.S. I have a question, or request. Just because I am curious about the different ways we eat. Would you share what ONE day of meals for your eating program would be. Just what being OP on your eating choice would be.
I am going to try to follow Dr. Oz for a few weeks...but am thinking about a few other options.
Thanks.....
