Hi ladies,

Sue - yes, the weather is just gorgeous today, and I'm headed back out in a little while. Cooler temps are headed this way again. A big YAY for the 4 pounds down.

Cristina - yay for your 1# down, too. I'm glad you've got done as much as you have in the house. Bet you're really glad about that. How's the kitchen coming along? Seems like once the kitchen is in place, it's more like "home".

Mindee - Gina's other 2 childen were c-section babies, so that's why Jackson has to be, too. I like Lynn for a mn.

Frances - any time I've been successful with weight loss, I've used a daily food journal. Each evening, after dinner, is when I write mine out for the next day. Keeps my hands busy, too, lol. You know what they say "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail". I'm personally one of those people who love lists in general, lol.

Amy - good idea to stick with the tae bo basic for awhile.

Hello to everyone else.

I hit the wrong button, and this posted before I was ready.

Today I got the shopping done, and the laundry, cleaned the bathrooms, and swept the front porch and walk. Now I'm headed out with a sf fruit popsicle.

Later,

Pink Jane- I am glad you like the nickname. I was worried.... I feel sorry for you DH being in PA ...I was born there and have spent lots of time driving there. Absolutely HATE the PA turnpike. But, you see I hated it because of the big trucks...and since he is one of those he might like it. LOL

Wonderful warm day here and I love having the windows open! I walked 2 miles this morning and plan to ride my newly overhauled bike this evening. Trying for a schedule of walking early before it gets too warm, but I like to sleep in...so we will see which wins. I must say I have felt very good the last few days, which has been an extra incentive!

Hi everyone and I will check in again later.

Me again....I rode the bike a mile around our circle....my legs were like jelly. Hopefully I can work up to 2 miles on the bike along with 2 miles walking. I think if I could do that MOST days of the week I would be doing great. Then some exercises (strength) two days a week. And of course, lay off the food. LOL
Gotta take Baby to the vet tomorrow and Mom to the bank. And it is supposed to rain...so I might have to do WATP. I finally unpacked the videos so I can WATP now.

Hi to everyone. Have a happy hump day tomorrow.

Thanks Everybody for your kind thoughts and

I am doing better today, still sad, but better.

Oh yeah and MIL called, FIL went to the Kidney specialist today and he is in Renal Failure, the very beginning, so for now he is on a low protein diet and they are going to monitor him very closely but eventually he will have to be put on Dialysis and then eventually, well, we'll lose him too.

You know what really upsets me? Is that I cannot give him grandchildren to enjoy before he gets really ill and passes on. I hope he lives a long time before he has to indure all that pain and all, but we all know its just a matter of time.

Boy I'm just a bundle of good news aren't I? lol. We just have to take it one day at a time I guess.

On a better note, it got up to 85 / 29.4 degrees today! It is STILL 68 / 20 Degrees outside!

All New Members!

My appointment for 35 weeks has come and gone. They have me as gaining a total of 23 pounds so far, I am not seeing it because a couple weeks ago I was at 10 pounds. But whatever, as long as Marissa is healthy. (I never weighed myself before I got pregnant so I don’t know what I weighed before stepping on the scale in early November.) My blood pressure is great. Chit chatted with one of the other doctors in the office. She asked me if I had been having any contractions, I said “a few Braxton Hicks here and there, but nothing needing a trip to the hospital.” She said “well, you are in the final stretch so it is normal. Have you had more then five in an hour?” to which I said “no” and she said “well, if you have strong contractions, more then five in an hour….I want to see you at the hospital.” I said “yes ma’am, will do.” We then chatted about my appointment last week and being told that I am measuring big. She measured my belly and agreed. She also said that I am to come back in one week, at which time I will get the GBS test done and get my first internal. Before even going back into the room, we waited for about an hour or so in the waiting room. They were trying to fit 40 patients into three hours because either half or most of the doctor’s were on vacation. As soon as I went back into a room, it went very quickly and I was back on my way home.

I had personals, but I hit the wrong button and deleted them on accident. Plus, Brandon is crying so I have to run anyways.

Mindee...Your change of spelling is now the way my family uses Lynn. My DD has that middle name and also some of the guys...my bro. and Dad. I guess Dad's family way back is where it started. I was surprised to see it for a man. Then my middle name is more masculine...so I always wanted to trade with my bro. LOL....

Sassy- Sorry your news is so glum. Keep your chin up chickie....the sun will shine for you all in due time.

It is rainy and gray here today...we were going to go shopping after Baby's appt. but said let's just go home and put on sweats and bum out. I hope to walk if it ever clears off a little.

BBL

Hello ladies,

PinkJane - you probably already know these WDW/Disneyland websites, but here are a couple, just in case. My fave is Disboards dot com message boards. The Family board and the Budget board are the first ones I go to each time. I've gleened lots of good ideas through the years from all of the sites there. Another one is allearsnet dot com. They have soooo much info and readers reviews of different parks/hotels/specials, and literally everything you'd want to know about Disney.

Sue - it was rainy here early this AM, but the sun is shining now. Hope it clears up for you, too. Hey, don't get your errands mixed up and take Mom to the vet and Baby to the bank, lol.

Jules - hiya, sweetie.

Sassy - my x-mil has been on dialysis for years, and has been leading a full life. Tammy would be able to give you more info. But depending on when you plan to conceive, I'd say your fil has a very good chance of being a part of your child/ren's lives.

Mindee - what's GBS?

Hello to everyone else reading this.

I've been doing very well with the food, exercise and water. Now, if I can remember to take my vitamin, I'd be set. I think I'm going to keep the vitamin bottle where I'll see it. Also, I'm starting a new weight loss scrapbook. The 'before' photos are scary, lol.

How's your day going so far?

I'll try to bbl....

Mindee~ Verrrrrry excited about your girl...any day now! Wow! You better post every day tho because if you disappear we are going to assume..wink!

Sassy ~ I"m so sorry about your loss and about your FIL. I hope you are keeping yourself happy and not forgetting about taking care of yourself.

Sue ~ I love to bum around in my sweats. Sounds so good when you hear someone else is doing it..haha!

Ok I'm thrilled because I"m only 1.25 pounds away from hitting the -20pound mark! I think people should start noticing that I look a bit different after losing 20....or I would hope so. haha! That's like 2 Big Babies! haha!

I still need to lose another 50 (the size of a medium dog)

Pink Jane ~ My family (including my parents) went to Disneyworld last July. Had the bestest time ever! We stayed at the lodge resort. It was so cool.

Hey Jules ~ I know when the hubby calls...haha...spent the entire day with mine yesterday. He loves to shop...it's sort of dangerous financially tho..haha..so I have to say "no" "no" "no"..etc. But we got some cool bamboo panels for out by the pool and I got some cute cheap heals from Target ("yes") haha!

Hey Jane~ our fearless leader! How's the GK's doing? Have you made any cookies lately? Ok...my bloodsugar must be falling...better go have some protein.


See ya later ladies!
Tina

Ok....have a great day today guys. I'll check in later to see if there's anything new!

Just a quickie here!! Waiting for a plumber to level out my dishwasher and then the countertops guys to screw the dishwasher back to the counter. The only thing that was screwed up with the installation, no biggy.

Seems like bad new is following me...literally!!! If anyone follows "Lost" on TV they will know what I am talking about. A character named Hurley always has bad luck following him....well today...our bank was robbed, right up the street from me and I was going to go there this morning but didn't have the time. Yesterday a Wendy's was robbed and it was the one that I had taken my Mom to last week. And I don't live in a high crime area!!! Instead of going to the bank this morning I went to a home made candy store to buy Easter stuff for my son, daughter and their fiances. Do you think they will be robbed tomorrow!!! Just kidding. I will return with personals after all these contractors finish up here. I have to keep my little ankle biters away from them.

Hello ladies...

JANE...still working on the kitchen. I need to get off this thing and finish it up, lol. But if I don't do my computer time first I don't know when I would get on. Something has to suffer doesn't it?

SASSY...sorry to hear about FIL. Lots of hugs to him and the rest of your family. I have seen a lot of those mini-stationwagons and yes, they are sporty and not so much like a station wagon per se. Looks like a fun little car and I know you will love it!

JULES...Thank you for the card I received yesterday! That was very sweet of you and made my day!

SUE...you are tiring me out just from reading your post! Good job on the exercise though!

HI MICHELLE...hope all is well with you and you are having a good day.

TAMMY...that is terrible news...those places being robbed. Thank god you didn't go to the bank when it was happening thou. But I don't think it's you, silly woman. How's the kitchen coming along? Are they almost done with it? Bet it is gorgeous!

Hi everyone else

Not much going on. Had to be up early to get Ernie dog to the vet. Poor puppy dog...he is having his teeth cleaned. He actually, had his teeth cleaned. Before I even made it home th vet called and said they had them cleaned and polished. But the wanted to take some x-rays because he has some bone loss on two teeth and wanted to see if they needed to pull them. Luckily they didn't..it was his molars. Good thing he doesn't eat hard dog food anymore. Anyway, have to go get him at 2:30. On the way home though thought I would pick up a few groceries. We are supposed to get some severe weather later and then more rain tomorrow. I want to get more done around this house tomorrow instead of running errands. I definitely get more done when I don't have to leave the house two or three times a day. Working on the kitchen again today and I am hoping to get it finished. I have just 6 cabinets to line, 2 drawers and then the two undercabinets. Putting the stuff away is a cinch. Of course I probably have two loads to run in the dishwasher as well. But we will be eating a homecooked meal today! In between I have two more loads of laundry to get done. Kind of let that go the last couple of days since I was busy with other things.

Anywho...still aiming to be 90-100% finished with the inside, other than curtains and blinds by the weekend so that I can get back on track with my exercise. My body has been hurting and I think it's because I've not exercised in almost 2 weeks. I feel sore...I know moving will do this but I honestly don't think it is from the move. My body gets used to the exercise and then when I just quit it hurts.

I better get going if I plan on getting anything done today. Have to get Ernie in about an hour so that cuts into my kitchen time too!

Hoping all is well with you ladies and everyone is having a good day! Lots of hugs to everyone!
