Hi Jo,

I don't know where everyone else disappeared to. Looks like we are left.

EVERYBODY----Jo and I are really lonely here. Where are you all?

I have really struggled with the water drinking. I don't like plain water, so have had difficulty in drinking enough everyday. I started buying sugar free seltzers in August and really like them. The WW material that I have says that sugar free seltzers are a substitute for water. Well, that just makes my water drinking easy. I drink 2, sometimes 3 litres of these at work during the day and try to drink 1 at home in the evening.

I get busy on weekends and forget to have anything, so that is where I was starting to get the cravings. The seltzers are also sweet enough to take the edge off my sweet tooth, so I don't crave desserts and sweets when I am drinking them, either. It has been a good substitute for me. The bonus is that I seem to drop waaay more weight when I am drinking them than if I don't. Gee whiz...how can that be?

I am really having difficulty finding clothes to wear. I have a few clothes in every size, but not enough clothes for the winter season. I put on a pair of pants this morning (bought 2 of them at the end of the season last year for $150 each), and they just hang on me. I have them cinched up with a belt right now and they are still falling down. When I walk down the hall it takes 5 minutes for them to catch up. All my clothes are in about the same condition. I am going to the mall this morning to see if I can buy something that will fit... Jo, don't tell my boss that I'm skipping out, OK? He's away this week, so I'm the boss right now...hehehe. I can spend lots of money in the few days left.

How did your Christmas shopping go last weekend? I'm glad that mine is finished. I want to be able to enjoy the season this year. I guess I shouldn't say that too soon, though It seems that when I plan ahead, and actually execute the plan, something happens that spoils the whole thing. I'm hoping this year will be OK.

Hope the rest of you come back and post. Hear from ya soon.

Luv,

Default Howdie from Kansas!

Good morning everyone! Am finally here at daughters home in Kansas ... got here Tuesday nite (9:00 Kansas time, 10:00 Michigan time) - long drive from Sharons! Didn't get to post yesterday - we ran around all day doing errands for the wedding. You should see my daughter's gown! ABSOLUTELY OUT OF THIS WORLD GORGEOUS! I'll take pictures!

Have not been staying OP for the last week, but did weigh myself today (this would have been my WI day but obviously am missing a meeting) the scale says I am the same ... so am getting myself back OP today! Haven't journaled in a few days - have to start that today too - or I will totally get off track!

Peggy: Try putting lemon in your water - makes it tastes better than plain ... That is another thing I got a way from last couple days - not drinking my full quota of water and I can tell the difference in the way I feel! So yes, the water DOES make a difference! Way to go on the 2 lbs - you go girl!

Jo: Congrats! finally on the D-I-V-0-R-C-E!!! It's been a long time coming hasn't it?

Sam: Send me a new bio and we'll get it updated... I need to do a few changes on the website anyways ... it needs some"updating" ...

Sharon: Where the heck are you girlfriend? I thought you would have posted by now ... See ya next Tuesday - will let ya know if plans change.

Well, gonna go and take a shower and wash hair ... Then help Dawn with some little things around here ... check back later - or tomorrow.

Stay OP everyone, and drink your WATER!!!

Love, CJ

Hi CJ, so good to hear from you again. Been thinking about you this week and hoping all the plans for the wedding are going well. Good to hear that you haven't gained over the past week with all the partying going on at Sharon's.

I have managed to stay OP up to now (that will make 2 complete weeks). However (there's always that 'but'), hubby and I are going to a dinner theatre (buffet dinner) tonight and I'l be prancing around in the size 10 clothes that I bought yesterday. Yahoo.

My eating action plan includes being over my my allotted points, but I have saved points this week to be able to indulge a bit. We were at the theatre a few weeks ago, so I am already journalling what I am going to eat tonight. Yes, it includes a couple of scrumptious desserts, and I'm going to enjoy every mouthful. I have made a commitment to taste and try what I want, but to stop when I am full. Wish me luck...

Back to being OP tomorrow, though. I am hoping to be under the 150 pound mark by WI on Monday. That gives me three days to do damage control after tonight.

I'll check in tomorrow to let you know how it goes. Have a great day, everyone. Talk some more later.

Default Hi everyone!

Hi guys,
Have been meaning to post here, but last couple of days I haven't been home. Spend the night at my daughters on Tuesday night, went to the mall with her. my niece and another friend Wednesday and have been running running with this and that today. So thought I would do this now.

CJ left on Tuesday morning and we all had a great time going here and there and acting silly. Ken and Dick as usual just went along with whatever we decided to do and where ever we wanted to go. LOL Those two are both really laid back and just go with the flow. LOL Her and Dick are stopping back on Tuesday night on the way back to Michigan to spend the night and get some rest. Than Wednesday when we all get up we will have a caravan and both head back to Michigan and stop for lunch all together, Ken, myself, Alan, and Dan too. We are going to Detroit area to spend the holidays with our families. So looking forward to traveling together. We should have some walkie talkies to know when to stop, but I guess we can always pull along side our cars and motion. LOL

My gosh we are really doing great with our Thin Group haven't we? So glad everyone so far agrees and want to make this group the best ever. Let's all keep on posting on whatever we need help with like we are all doing. I love the new format and I think it is really great that we have this push to carry us throug the holiday season. I don't want to just give up and say the heck with it. Because let's face it guys, Thanksgiving is ONLY one day and so is Christmas eve and Christmas day as is New Years eve and New Years day too. We still have the rest of the week before and after to try to stay on program.

Well I went to my WW meaning on Monday and CJ went with me and I had a 3.4 lb gain but we really did alot of eating out and even though I did try it was really hard to get all that water down sometimes when we were in the car and other places. I mean I go to the bathroom enough and when I drink so much water I practically live in the bathroom. LOL I didn't do my usual exercise video tapes or make my trip to the gym, but we tried to walk plenty at the mall and around downtown Columbus.

Jo-Congratulations on the divorce. I know that feels great doesn't it? You have been waiting a long time for this. I know how you feel when you say that sometimes you wonder if you have an eating disorder because I too at times can feel that way. I mean why is everything in our life always revolve around food. We can't have a holiday without that good food we love and when we are with people it somehow ALWAYS involves food doesn't it? Well I think we will NEVER get away from that so all we can do is learn to control what we eat and I am a firm believer in not denying yourself either when you really want something. You had said that you want to keep from happening the fact that at times you try so hard on your program and than suddenly just like that you don't care. I am here to tell you that we ALL do that at times. Me more than I care to admit. I think the only thing we can do Jo, is just to try to focus on what we are doing and let's give ourselves some credit for what we have accomplised. Jo you have done so very well and when you want to indulge maybe you can think of how far you have come and tell yourself that you CAN have a bit of what you want and it will always be there tomorrow. If you just get yourself through the day and stick to your program than tomorrow will shine even brighter for you.

Peggy-Wow whee, you have been doing an awesome job being on your program for two straight weeks now. I know you will do your best at your dinner and like I told Jo. The same advice to you, when you are at the dinner just think of how far you have come too. That is great that you have saved points too so enjoy your dinner and I would say you have earned it girl. Good thinking with those seltzer waters, much easier to get down I would think. Thanks for the imfo on drinking water. Just what we need to see how important water is to our program and everyday life too.

CJ-Hey girlfriend. Miss you already, got your email and one back to you too. Hope you are having a wonderful time at Dawns and I just know she loves so much having you there helping her out. Remember to take pictures and send them to me. I can't wait to see you Tuesday night when you stop in on your way home from Michigan. It will be fun!

Sam-What a good move joining a gym to help your out. Don't worry, you will lose your weight, from having the baby. I know having 4 myself that having babies really do take it's toll on your body. But you are going about the right and healthy way and you will be where you want to be in no time at all. Just wait and see! I am proud of you for what you are doing.

Hey I see so far we have a recipe thread and a Small Sucesses thread too. Feel free to post on them and if you want to start a thread of ANY subject please go on ahead and start one. This will help us all out to have lots of threads about any subject your heart desires. Weight related or not. GO FOR IT!

Take care guys and let's keep up the great work with our group. WE CAN DO THIS!

Love ya, Sassy Sharon

TGIF!! It's going to be a loonnnnggg day but I'm going to hang in there. Lots of garbage going on here in the office (meaning: stress eating for Jo) but I will persevere. I'm making notes for my annual review which will be in late Dec./early Jan. Oooh, some things are going to have to change around here!!!

Sorry. Just needed to vent briefly. Actually, I'm pretty much chained to my desk today. It's bad because I can get someone to fill my water bottle for me but I can't get someone to ... well, get rid of the water for me. It'll get interesting. But it's good because today's the monthly birthday cake. We have cake once a month to celebrate birthdays off all employees for the month. If I can't leave my desk, I can't get a piece of cake, right? That's my plan anyway.

Peggy, I just wanted to tell you how much I admire you!! 2 weeks OP is a distant dream for me. And banking points for a future event!?!? I want to be just like you!

Sharon, thanks for the words of wisdom. I realize that we all have times when all we want to do is eat eat eat. I just wish there was a quick fix out there for us.

Sam, I still can't believe Charlotte's almost 7 months old already! Seems like just yesterday you were telling us you were expecting. Congratulations on your wise decision to go back to the gym. I've often considered it but I think I'll just stick to my treadmill. That way it can sit there and call to me and shame me into getting on it.

Speaking of getting on the treadmill, I did just that last night. I was flipping through the channels and came across an hour long interview (film clips, music, etc.) with Aerosmith. Now I've recently developed this crush on Steven Tyler. I have to tell you. There's nothing like an interesting man and lots of loud rock and roll music to keep you moving on a treadmill. Stayed on almost the entire hour!!

Have to run now. Darn phone's been ringing off the hook already today. Have to find someone who's heading back to the cafeteria to fill my water bottle for me. And, Jo, repeat after me: "No, you don't have to get me a piece of cake, thank you, just the water will do". Hope that works!

Much love to you all!
Jo.

Today is a new day, right? Well the damage is in for the buffet that I went to last night. Yesterday was a (ssshhh) 55 point day, complete with a 2 1/2 pound gain. Oh well, three days to WI, so I will need to do some damage control. The bread pudding at this restaurant is to die for... I don't even really care for bread pudding, but my mouth waters when I think of this. My son works as a bartender in this hotel, so I will have to see if he can get the recipe for it. I won't post it here because it is waaaay toooo high in calories, fat and everything else you can imgaine.

The damage control started with forgetting my lunch at home today. That leaves two choices - wait until tonight to eat, or buy something pizza/sub/hamburger, etc. at the cafeteria. I think I will opt for the first choice and eat some apples that were left over from a previous lunch this week. That should keep me until I get home to have something proper. I am also helping some students with a project at noon, so will be busy enough that I don't think about food too much.

Gotta go. Work is calling. I promised myself that I would get my filing caught up this week. It's down to the wire, so that means I better get my act together.

Have a great weekend everyone. I'm being your conscience here.....remember, Thanksgiving's Day is Thursday. Start to plan today for how you will manage.

Luv,

Default Just checking in ...

Good morning all - just checking in real quick to say hello. Today is my daughter's big day! I thought I would check my mail while having my coffee - then we have to start getting ready. It's going to be a beautiful wedding!

Have not been staying too much OP - then again, have not been too bad either ... weighed myself this morning and am still at 170 ... I think once we get going home I will be able to start fresh and really get strict with myself.

Well, hope you all have a great weekend ... I'll post again before we leave here (Tuesday morning) .... going to go to the updates now..

Love, CJ

Just checking in with everyone at the end of the weekend. It was a really stressful weekend for me, consequently, my metabolism has shut down again and will need to see the doctor to get a kick start tomorrow. This is the first time, since the beginning of July that this has happened. If I don't do something about it right away, all the work that I have done so far will be gone before Christmas. It also means, no weight loss for me this week - this morning it is looking at about a 5 pound gain.

Got home on Friday night, let the dog out for a moment and he took off running as fast as he could. Ran across the street and got hit by a truck. I was watching the whole thing, powerless to do anything about it. Spent Friday night at the emergency vet clinic, and came out, mucho dollars lighter. Fortunately, there were no broken bones, only minor injuries - small gash above the eye, bleeding nose, some trauma behind the eye and a potential concussion. His medication this weekend seems to have taken the swelling out of the eye, and he is responding to it very well. This is the same dog that walks on the treadmill with me... I just can't believe that he is still in one piece, but am very glad that things worked out.

At the same time that we were at the vet clinic, I got a call to respond to a bomb threat at work. Fortunately, it wasn't too far from the vet clinic, so I spent several hours running back and forth. By Saturday morning, my head was so heavy and tired, I was beginning to wonder why there has to be weekends. No, no, no, I shouldn't be thinking that nasty thought!

The weight loss has suffered, though. Oh well, that's the least of the worries this week. I took the opportunity to bake my Christmas cakes today while I was in the weight gain mode, and started a bit of other Christmas baking. Hope to finish next weekend. Hubby is away for three days, so I will be able to get quite a bit done while he is gone. Might be able to keep some of it, to boot.

CJ - Was thinking about you yesterday. How did the wedding go? Can't wait to see pics. Send as soon as you can.

Well, gotta be going. I have a meeting in a few minutes, so better be getting my act together here. I'll check in tomorrow and let you know the bad news. Take care.

Luv,

Just got back from WI. The news is not good. This week it is a 1 pound gain. I'm feeling so depressed because I really wanted to break the 150 mark this week and worked so hard to achieve that goal. Oh well. I'm still OP since Friday and will have to wait until next week to see if there is any difference.

Have a good week.

Hey you guys! What's up with this? Why have we gone to 2 pages already? Hmmmm, very strange.

Peggy, don't worry. It's "only" 1 lb. You've done so well already. One little lousy pound can't stop you now!! I realize it's disappointing not to reach your mini-goal (believe me, I know how it is!!!) but I'm sure you'll persevere.

I'm so sorry to hear about your little dog! It must have been horrible to watch. But I'm so glad he's going to be alright. Just what you needed with all the other stress, right?

Well, everyone. Jo is once again recovering from a horrible eating weekend. Chinese food! Yikes!! I gained how much!?!?!?! I'm hoping it's mostly water weight because I didn't get in my water over the weekend. Took a bus trip to Atlantic City and spent lots of time walking up and down the boardwalk. It was such a beautiful day and there were lots of people trying to get in one last day before it gets too cold. It's tough to walk fast through all those crowds. But at least I didn't spend all my time sitting in the casinos or (heaven forbid) at the food court!!!

Have to go now. It's almost quitting time, thank goodness. Almost one day down and only 2 more to go this week. I still have time to plan a strategy for Thanksgiving Day.

Hmm... should I start a new thread....?? Could happen.

Much love, Jo.

Default Hello from Aus...

Hello one and all

Sweet tooth, don't you worry, I bet you're already back on track!

Jo - I understand why you need water to lose water, really. Doesn't mean I don't think it is strange! I've never been good on the water thing, but trying..

Haven't gymmed in a week. Really overate at the naming day and yesterday and I am SO rundown. I know the first few years with a child and working are like this, but it is really hard. I'm always tired, my glands have been up for 5 weeks now, so you can imagine how I feel. All the extra stress of work closing and being broke etc is just too much and I'm such an emotional eater.

These few days just trying to maintain and recover. Tomorrow is my day off, yay. Plan to rest. Thursday I plan to head back to the gym.

Where is everyone? CJ, how was the wedding? I bet she looked amazing!!!!

Hi guys,
Just thought I would post while I have a few. Waiting for CJ and Dick to come back here and spend the night and tomorrow we will all head back to Michigan and do the lunch thing together. She should be here anytime, she called a couple of hours ago and said she was a couple of hours away.

Anyways:

Peggy-Don't give up sweetie. I know it is rough when you are so close to your goal and than you go and have a gain, but it is alright and not a real big one. I know you will get it off in no time at all. Just keep doing what you were doing with your program. YOU CAN DO THIS, YOU ARE SO CLOSE! Also sorry about your little doggie, but am so glad he is going to be alright.

Sam-You hang in there too, being a mother is really stressful how well I know. Life is so different when you have someone else to care for. You will get there, just give it time and think what a wonderful baby daughter you have there. Keep on going, you will do this!

Jo-I know that gain is from the chinese food cause I have done that. The trick is to keep drinking water till you think you can't drink anymore. It always works for me and it kinda flushes out all that excess water you are holding.

On the weight front, I did good this week at my Weight Watchers weigh in. I lost 4.4 lbs and that is good cause that makes up for the 3.4 lbs I gained last week with eating out all the time, plus down another pound for good measure. I will keep on working on this.

We are heading to Michigan to family tomorrow and I will try my best. Everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving and see you when I get back. Where is everyone lately? Hope we get more after Thanksgiving, we will need to lend encouragement and support to each other. WE CAN ALL DO THIS GUYS TOGETHER!

Love to all, Sharon

Default This is from CJ ....

I am at Sharon's now .... just got here a little bit ago and we all went and got something quick to eat. I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving - going to make this short as I am really tired from being in the truck for 12 hours! I promise I will post again asap! Don't stress out on what you eat Thursday - just enjoy and start being good on Friday!

Jo - whatever are you talking about - 2 pages??? Hahahaha - just kidding with you cuz I noticed the other day that we had gone to a second page - but now we are once again on one ... don't know what's up with that?????

Dreamer - got your updates and new bio. Will put you on the updates tomorrow nite before we head up to the cabin for Thanksgiving. I will re-do your bio just as soon as I can - ok?

Peggy: Don't worry about that 1 lb - you are doing so well, you should be proud of yourself. I have not journaled since being in Kansas - will start again tomorrow!!!

Sharon: Well, I will get done posting here so we can chat a bit before we go to bed! Good job on the 4.4 lbs!!!

The wedding was a huge success - beautiful! I will post pictures when I get them ... And tell you more when not so tired.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving - and remember, don't stress on the food - just enjoy! Remember, Friday is a new day!

Love, CJ

I don't know, CJ. My 'puter's still showing 2 pages!! Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.... (Twilight Zone music.)

Well, I'm totally behind as far as Thanksgiving planning goes. I'm going to be up half the night making the WW cranberry sauce and cutting up veggies and making fat free dip, etc. Oh well. It'll keep me out of trouble. Just hope the boss has a heart and lets us go home early.

Have no time at all but I just wanted to wish you all a very happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!!! Everyone be careful (driving, EATING, drinking, EATING, travelling, EATING....) I'll talk to you all on Monday!

Much love, Jo.

Just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Tomorrow is the big day and I'll be thinking of you all while you are celebrating. For me, it's business as usual, but I think I will join you and enjoy a virtual Thanksgiving feast. That's a little easier on the weight loss.

Sharon - Congratulations on the weight loss. You have done a superb job this past week and the effort is showing. You also have a great plan for Thanksgiving. Way to go! I have always found it better to plan in advance what I will do in situations where I know there will be a lot of food. Even if the plan doesn't follow your program to the letter, you will still eat less than if you have no plan. Have a great visit with family and enjoy.

CJ - So good to hear that the wedding went well. Can't wait to see the pics - I love wedding pictures. Must be the romantic in me. Have a great Thanksgiving up at the cabin. Sounds like just the kind of weekend that I would love.

Jo - You are doing so well with fixing stuff for the holidays. Keep up the good work. Sharon is right about drinking water after the Chinese food. I went out for Vietnamese food on Monday (pigged out), and drank water the rest of the day. My weight was back to a normal by the following monring. There really is something about this drinking water that makes a difference.

I have talked to the personal fitness trainers here at work and that is one of the things that they harp on all the time - drink water, more water and more water. Sometimes you get so sick of hearing that, but it really does work.

Dreamer - I am feeling so bad that you are going through all this stress. It is difficult enough having the responsibility to look after and provide for family, but the added stress of your office closing can be too much. It is no wonder that you are worn out and tired all the time. Take each day, one at a time. That is difficult with added worries, I know. Take care of yourself and be sure to take care of your health. I'm thinking of you.

Time to go now...work is calling. Have a great weekend, everyone.

P.S. Don't forget to fill in you Thanksgiving Day Challenge results.


Lotta luv,
