Default Back In Kindergarten #52

HI & to the Back In Kindergarten thread!

Home of the BIG A$$ Walking Challenge!

Come join us as we walk away the pounds this summer.




"I feel like I am back in kindergarten in many ways... personal, sometimes at work and now with the weight loss. I have done so many things wrong over the years.....emotional eating, pills for weight loss, eating the wrong things, failed diets, etc.
Now it's time to start fresh, kinda like back in kindergarten......"


You are welcome to join us in our chatter about life and our weight loss journey! So please grab your coffee/water/diet coke or whatever your drink of choice is, and pull up a chair and join us!

doing my daily pop in.....

I bit the bullet and called the pediatricians office. I explained to the one nurse that we know very well, what had happened, and what we have been doing for his burns and blisters. She said that we have been doing every thing right. Just to make sure that we wrap it while he is playing, but we can let the air get to it at night. To keep putting the silver stuff on it that our neighbor is letting us use. And under no circumstances to pop the blisters that he has....we are to leave them to pop on their own OR they will reabsorb the fluid in them, and then they will shrink and fall off on their own.

My gashes are doing well. The one on my leg is pretty much closed, but I am still putting neosporin on it and covering it with a band aid. the one on my arm, well the top of it has closed, but not the bottom half. so neosporin on those and covering those ones as well.

As of right now, we are not going anywhere this coming weekend.....so we will be staying home or at least in this area. That means, spending time at the pool, walking them over to the park so that they can play, and who knows where else we will end up at or who will end up over here.

thanks for the nice comments on my avatar. I was looking at them last night when I uploaded them, and I thought I saw a difference, but then again, it was late too and I thought that my eyes were playing tricks on me.

I do have to say that the evil ice cream got to me last night. BUT in my defense it tasted really gross! Tommy said "that is because you haven't had sugar in a while, so your body thinks it is an intruder." Fine by me! I won't be eating any more from now on!

We were discussing my birthday party on the way home from the park. He said "all I am providing are the hot dogs, hamburgers, buns, pop, plates and cups. every thing else, some body else can bring." I said "what? I don't get a cake?" He said "well, you don't usually eat cake, and I am not spending 15 dollars on a cake. or maybe I will just make you one."

other then that, nothing really new......besides Logan climbing out of his bedroom window again last night! I swear I don't know what I am going to do with this kid!

Mindee- When is your bday? I love carbs, that is my ice cream.....tell me to lay off bagels and I would go bonkers. lol

Cristina - Thanks for changing the thread for us! I just read from the other thread and now I am having a brain fart trying to remember. lol Umm, finishing Juno tonight, gaby was flipping around too much to let me watch it.
I know,,,,people are rude these days!! Ain't nice like we are.....lol - omg, I was at Starbucks this morning and these 2 ladies lean against the stand that has the milk & sugar, they were waiting for their drinks. All I get is the coffee and I just want to get to the sugar & half and half....they don't even move, I have to say EXCUSE ME!!! .....duh. I think they are all half wits......lol

Francie -

I have to get Gabster packed , her father will be here in an hour. We didn't do much, went to value village and I picked gaby up some shorts and 2 shirts...and Rach got some things. McD , I guess called....I will call him later. I really don't want to do anything this weekend.....I have to watch my waistline, ya know..... blame him for me not being in my 140's....jk, not that anal. lol

k- good eating day, good water day......lousy exercise week.....

Mindee - Cute. Marissa is probably this future exercise queen that can't relax until she gets her walk in for the day. *sigh.....it's ok, we can turn this around......there is still hope for her. lol

I bet she is a cutie, I want another baby!

mmm, I had a roll w/ mutard and some steak for dinner.

Gaby went w/ her father tonight, who btw paid me child support and I was thinking.....if I squint my eyes really hard and drink a bottle of wine , he ain't looking half bad. I didn't tell him that! I am not that dumb......I just like to amuse myself with stupidity.

Francie- can't open the link but I see Jason's name. PLEASE!! I will not watch any show w/ this man. He skips and wiggles his butt in excitment, major gross. ....and he really deserves to be single.

Case closed........

omg - I was called for jury duty.....can you imagine?? I don't want to do it, I don't want to do anything. I just want to work on my sun tan and eat carbs all day........ewww, and lose lots of weight and have lots of money...and I want kids,,,,but I don't want them around me.....lol

k- off to take my sleeping pill and put myself down for the night. ....

Well hate to be the one to bring back my little "black cloud" again, but its back and I have nothing to do with it coming back this time. My DH got fired. I will not go into details here because its a public forum, but if you want more details, you know how to get a hold of me.

The eating is going well, infact I only eat enough to take my medications, otherwise I probably wouldn't be eating. Mt. Dew, is not so easy. I have cut down.

Well thats all. I am off to bed. My sleep schedule is all messed up now with the "news" my DH woke me up on Thursday to tell me and we had to do some talking and stuff.

We will be fine, I for once am not worried. I told DH "We have been through worse." He keeps feeling like he has "Failed" me cuz well I guess that is that "male gene" thing where they still have feel like they are "providing" for their family. But I reassured him that no, he did not fail me.

Well I'm really off now! lol.

Bye!

Hiya ladies...

SASSY...hugs to you and your hubby! That sux that he got fired, but then maybe it is a blessing in disguise...you know what they say, when one door/window closes, another one opens. I know you guys haven't been happy with this company. Hoping you got some sleep!

SUSAN...you crack me up! Thank you for your sense of humor. If I didn't laugh every day I would be crazy because laughter is what gets me thru a lot of days. I try to always stay positive even when I am worried about things. That is one thing that DH taught me...there is not point in worrying over things we have no control over so I laugh about everything. That is what got me thru losing a hubby and baby. And I hear ya about wanting a baby...I've wanted one for a long time but it ain't gonna happen now, I am way too old. But...I can live thru Josh & Charlotte, lol. I told her the other day that when she has a baby it is mine. I was having too much fun in Toys R Us yesterday looking at the baby stuff/clothes.

MINDEE...yes, I can see a difference in you in the avatar and the shirt you are wearing is a nice color on you. Wonder why Logan keeps going out the window? Maybe you guys should buy one of those window locks and tighten it really good. I would be afraid he would sneak out while I was sleeping. Glad the burn and gashes are healing well. Funny about the cake, lol. I can't remember the last time I had one. V always feels funny about not getting me one but I don't want one because I don't want to have all this cake around. I LOVE cake and I will go overboard so...I think though next year I will get one and we will have a celebration with the kids & grandkids. It will be our 10th anniversary as well so...was supposed to be planning for an Alaskan cruise on our 10th but doesn't look like that is going to happen. I do want to do something special though. Money is tight now days for sure.

HIYA FRANCIE... Not really a fan of the bachelor so didn't go and see the site. But I enjoy listening to you ladies talk about it.

HELLO KATY, TAMMY, JULES, SUE, ASIA, CLARA and anyone reading this...hoping all is well with you all.

No special plans for the weekend. I am going to catch up on my reading for sure. Was wanting to do something but I don't even want to get out in this heat. Supposed to be 101 today, ick!

Did get my exercise done and recorded that, and yesterday's. I am happy to say I am down on the scales. Not back down to 181 but close enough. I am at 182 but that is better than the 183/184 last WI. I do plan on being down 3 pounds next WI...tired of kitty footing around! I should have already been to the 160 sort of goal by now and it really pi$$es me off that I am being so stupid. I say sort of goal because I never had a set Ultimate Goal in mind. Over the years my body has changed and what I was comfortable at years ago is different. I don't see myself being smaller than 150 lbs and so maybe that is what I will aim for. But I went with 160 because I've not seen that in years and figured it may be the goal or not. I just have to wait and see. But NO MORE! I don't know what happened that I was doing so well and then sort of quit. I didn't actually quit but I sure haven't been doing well at all. It's just ridiculous that I lose 2 pounds and then gain one. And then lose one and gain two. I have been going from 181-184 for the last few months and no more...tired of it. If that's where I wanted to be that would be fine, but it's not so...getting things together to get motivated again and get down to business.

I'll check back later...have a good one ladies!

Sassy~I'm so sorry about your dh. That sucks so bad!!! But maybe it is like Cristina said..its a blessing in disguise.


OKay..so nothing much to report on this end. We bought the cat carriers yesterday. And the cats were having a grand ol' time playing in them, LOL. Then April decided to take a nap in all 3 of them, lol. Lucky just wanted to playing in them, lol. And Sassy sat in her carrier for a little bit, marked it..then got out the heck out of it. It was soooooo funny. Sassy did not wanna go in it at all at first!! She knew exactly what it was. LoL!! We had to shove her in there. Then Fonzo took her outside to see what she would do. And as soon as he got to the stairs, she started w/the weird meow. It was sooooooooooooooooo funny!! We were cracking up. Poor cat has issues, lol.


OKay well..we have some stuff to do today. So I better go..ttyl!!

Sassy- to you and your DH. I know how much you dis-like that company, so maybe this is the kick in the pants to get the "he double toothpick" out of there. Thinking of you...and you have to eat, take care of yourself.

Francie- Hi girlie. Your cats sound too funny. I hope they get used to the carriers for your upcoming trek.

Susan- LOL about the jury duty. I hate filling in those questionaires they send...or maybe they don't even do that in this computer age. Hey...they do pay for jury duty. See...your new job! Have a good week-end!

Cristina- I agree with you re: the laughter. I try to look on the bright side and see the humor in situations...or create the humor if need be. My first DH was a jokester, present one, not so much. Our sense of humor is so different. He is serious minded. That is why I enjoy being with my DDs so much, they are more like me. We also know what the other is thinking and "get" the same funny situations. I must say we have lightened up DH over the years.

Mindee- I too like the new avatar. Oh my...climbing out the window..what a feat. I once lived in an apt. where a little girl pushed the screen off the UPPER level window and was hanging out. Scared me to death. We just tried talking to her calmly while someone went and told her parents what was happening. They got her before she fell, or jumped. Scary!! I agree, lock those windows somehow.

Jules- Are you having a busy Sat. with that precious baby? Hope things are good for you.

I am feeling quite good today, for a change. It is hot and humid, so no outdoor time yet. Hopefully I can ride by evening. I swear just 2 or 3 miles a day is getting me going. It also keeps me from snacking if I ride at night. The scales are moving down..little by little. I officially weigh in on Mon.
I know exactly what Cristina is talking about...I think when I joined 3fc I was maybe 175 pounds or so. Then I got stuck at 170 for a loooong time. Each winter I gained and then fell back to 170, and no lower. Last summer I finally wittled it down to 164 and was doing great. Mom got sick and I parked the bike, gained back to 170 quickly, of course. Then the winter...yikes, up to 180- 181. So..that was my starting point THIS TIME. Like I said I know I am losing, and will get the real number Mon. Slow and steady this time.
I don't know why I quit wearing the pedometer and recording my steps. All I have recorded have been the walking around the block...and I know I do more than that daily. So, back to wearing it and recording. I am encouraged by what I have read about the Step diet. May have to get that book. But I can do what I have read...aim for 10,000 steps and cut out 25% of what I have been eating. For me that has meant this week that I fill my plate with the correct portions and DO NOT eat anything more. No seconds. If I am still hungry I eat fruit. You do not have to eat anything wacky or all carbs, all grains, or anything...just what you normally eat. Less of it and move more. Worth a try because it is doable for the long haul.

Okay...sorry this is so lengthy. I just have been thinking about all this...and Cristina saying she is pi$$ed off at herself made me take a good look. Let's do this Cristina.

Although...I might add, with Cristina working out 110 minutes a day I think she kicks all our butts.....Go C. .

doing my daily pop in...

I found this really cute new layout for my myspace.....if you have me on your list, go and check it out if you want. I also got my pictures moved around so I don't have as many folders of pictures. a friend of mine always teases me because I have two pages of pictures.

SuzieQ~ I swear she is going to my motivation factor for me to keep up with all this! now, if they will turn the lights on outside of the buildings so I am not walking in the dark. But it is still fun either way. the funny part of it all......all three of my kids love going for walks/riding their bikes...if it is exercise, they enjoy it! the total opposite of how I was when I was younger...which is a good thing!

Sassy~ My goodness! I will have to send you a message here in a second.

Cristina~ Thank you so much for those nice comments. Wanna hear a secret? That shirt that I am wearing......is a maternity shirt! I only have a few that are still in there, but they will be gone when we get word if we can have a garage sale in here or not. The only time he jumps out the window is when the window has been left open. He doesn't know how to open it himself, which is good. I am a sucker for a funfetti cake with the funfetti icing....that is my biggest downfall! Next year is our 10th anniversary since we started dating. we won't hit our 10th wedding anniversary until 2012. Yay on hitting 182!

Francie~ Your cats crack me up! Was April trying to see which one was the comfiest for sleeping?

Sue~ we used to live in an upper unit. we wanted a lower unit for that exact reason! we know that he is our no fear kid, so we could already see that he might be the one to do it. The step diet? I have never heard of it..I will have to take a gander at it.

Good Afternoon,

Cristina - You might not want to do the one door/ window closes another opens w/ Logan around. haha. That is all kids need is a little encouragment.
I hear you about the up/down on the scale,we all should be at GOAL weight by now ......what the **** is wrong with us!!! lol Actually, I think you are doing good and in the exercise dept you are truly the queen.
One lady on my old, old Yahoo group named Melissa had like 10 pounds to lose and she was on this board for years, never lost anything but her determination was inspiring, she never gave up and I think we all have victory in that dept....we don't give up and we are still here! .....omg- I think I hear Rocky music or some dang thing swelling in my head. hehe

Sassy ....so, yes......one job closes ((we don't use doors or windows.....kind of like food porn - lol )) and another better position will open for your husband. And truly I think jobs are overated....look at me, I have been unemployed since Dec.....lol. jk, ok ...I will be serious! mmmmm, to you and it'll be ok

Mindee- I saw the lay out! Very cute and creative, I don't know how to do any of that. You should mention liability to your manager regarding the lightening in the parking lot. I mean....one little trip or stumble.....is not a good thing. You might have to sue and take em for a house of your own. lol.........omg- I thought pms was over?!?!? My kids think I am mean....*eyes roll* whatever......

Francie - Cute kitties!!

Sue - I didn't get past the Aug 18th date on the letter. I passed last January's jury summons , so I probably can't put it off any longer. I guess I do get paid...

Hi to everyone! Katy, Jules, Asia, Tammy, and Clara!!

Took Rach to get a bible this morning, she is going to church tomorrow. I probably should go with her, goodness knows I need it. lol We need a kinder, gentler Susan .....or do we?? Thinking of Momma Mia, McD doesn't really want to see it so he if he goes with me and is bored I will be annoyed. I want to enjoy it. I would like to go get my hair cut like Rachael Ray.....I think it is a cute style. After that a lot of sleeping - lol....oh, I do want to go get 90 minutes in Heaven by Don Piper, saw it at the Christian book store.

k- that is all my stuff!! Chat later

I'm back...

SUSAN...I forgot that you mentioned jury duty. Do you think you can get out of it? They wanted me to do it when I lived in CA and I said NO! Lol, like that would do it. I came up with an excuse though. The kids were little and I had no one to watch them so...but I think I would do it now. You are too kind Thank you for the nice comments and you are right...we definitely are not quitters! And I think you have done an awesom job missy with your weight loss! You've come a long way baby! And not just once, so you keep on truckin'! I was just looking at your pictures today, now that is inspiration!

SUE...thank you as well for the kind words. And ladies, you guys need to quit calling me the exercise queen, lol. I truly am not...just doing what feels good. I never thought I would say I LOVE to exercise but I do! And yes, we can and will do this! Funny...because hubby #1 was a jokester too, and V is totally opposite. He has a sense of humor and we have gotten him to open up a lot but I think sometimes he looks at us like we are weirdo's

FRANCIE...your cats sound too cute! Hoping they do well with the trip. So...have you guys got the trip mapped out or are you just taking off and what ever you see you see? How did the apartment calling go?

MINDEE...you know, I saw some tops in the maternity section that were cute and was tempted to try one, lol. They are basically the same style of shirts that I like that make me look preggers anyway so why not, lol. I didn't though. I checked out your page earlier and am thinking you are talking about the mom of 2 handsome boys and daughter...that is cute! And I finally remembered to check out the pics! I agree...you have LOTS of albums/pictures! I thought I took a lot but I think you beat me there.

I better get going...have loads of reading I want to do. Oh, Susan, let me know about Moma Mia if you see it...if I lived close I would go with you. But I understand...I hate to see certain movies with V because I feel like he won't enjoy them like I know me and DD would. That is one reason DD and I go so much.

Enjoy your weekend ladies!

Oh Cristina...I totally know what you mean about V looking at you like you are weirdos. My DH always looks that way when my kids are around because we all "act up." LOL
We learned early on not to pull practical jokes on him. He gets mad and we are rolling on the floor.

Okay...off to see if it is cool enough to ride the bike.
