Default Back In Kindergarten #69

Hello & to the Back In Kindergarten thread!

"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......"


Feel free to join us in our chatter about life and our weight loss journey! So please grab your coffee/water/diet coke etc. and pull up a chair and join us!

Okay, came back because I forgot a couple of things earlier...got sidetracked when Charlotte called and then Jeopardy was about to start...can't miss my Jeopardy

WI was horrible...as expected. I was terrible over the weekend...stress eating BIG time! But I am back on track today with both my eating and my exercise...I plan to be down at least the 2 pounds I've gained in the last two WI's. I swear everytime I make a goal of weightloss I just set myself up for failure. But I am really going to give it a good fight and I plan on losing those stubborn 6 pounds by Valentine's Day!!! Anyway...scales said 183.6, ugh!

Also, forgot to add my miles walked so far...as of today the grand total is 30.70 miles...not a great start, but a start nonetheless. Onto indies...

SUSAN...so, did you get an actual answer/reason as to why the cut? Hoping it is because Gaby is doing GREAT with her speech! Hope she had fun at swimming and I hope that you got to watch Bachelor. Yes, bacon IS evil! Good thing I don't have it often...between me and daughter we will eat a whole package, okay...we have. This was half of a package because I refused to be a piggy and eat it all, lol. Even Cambrie asked for four! I told her after she ate two and her eggs if she wanted more I would give her more. Try not to work too hard tomorrow! You work tomorrow, right? Sorry I can't keep it straight...when I have it right it's wrong. Your salads sound really good!

FRANCIE...great job on the workout with the hubby! Glad you have a workout partner...it helps staying on track when you have a buddy. Keep it up missy!

SUE...definitely food porn, lol! I too could eat a whole package of bacon...that stuff is bad! There was a time I could eat half a package anyway, but not now...always thinking of the points and it is dfinitely not worth the points! I guess I missed that you guys were headed to Vegas...my head has been in the clouds lately for sure. Enjoy your trip and be safe. Keeping my fingers crossed for good weather Be careful with your back too!

SASSY...I think you said something about WW? Can't remember what you asked. Jules, Me and I believe Tammy are doing WW. Were you still going to do it with your co-worker?

JULES...hoping all went well today, thinking of you.

I did get my workout in...87 minutes-finally! Felt good and thinking I need to get back into the routine. I had so much more energy when I was working out every day. I've noticed the lack of since I've slacked off. So that in itself is motivation enough for me to get back on track. Anyway...

Hello Katy, Kathy, Tammy, Mindee and anyone I missed...I know I forgot someone-sorry.

Just wanted to jump on quickly but quickly turned into 30 minutes. I am going to try and get up right at 5 in the morning so I can do a 30 minute dvd before heading to get Cambrie. Glad she spends the night tomorrow so I don't have to drive to get her so much. The plan is a day at Chuck E Cheese...will give her a little fun since she will be here all day. She only goes to preschool M-W & F so on Tues and Thurs when I pick her up she spends the night. Anywho...getting sleepy and need to go change my siggy/miles...Nighty, night ladies.

Hi Cristina,

I was asking about the new Momentum plan that I have heard about on tv? I was gonna check into it. I think WW's would keep me in track for sure.

I just want this fat gone already.........I know it took me years to gain it and all, but I just want it gone.

Good morning...

Just checking in before starting the day. Technically my day started at 5:30...going to be a long day for sure. Went to bed at a little before midnight but couldn't go to sleep for some reason.

Getting ready to exercise in a few minutes and then get ready for an early lunch and fun at Chuck E Cheese, oh joy, lol.

I weighed this morning and the pound+ I was up...I am down that, lol...go figure. Went with Monday's WI anyway. Hoping it stays off and I get more off too!

KATY...thinking of you today as you head to the doc's later.

JULES...thinking of you too!

SUSAN...don't work too hard today.

KATHY...hoping all is well with you.

SUE...be safe and have fun in Vegas!

And hello to everyone else

Better get going so I can get part of my exercise done and get Cambrie dressed and myself as well.

Have a GREAT day!

I'm home today being a sickie. Asthma has turned into bronchitis and I'm on high doses of steriods and antibiotics for two weeks. TG for prescription coverage. My antibiotic would cost $202/week without it. Anyhoo....taking it easy today. More wedding planning/searching internet etc. Called dd Lauren this morning and told her I was off today to help her look up stuff. She took her little Papillon, Hunter, to get d-nutted....opps....I mean neutered. He's only 3 lbs. So cute. Speaking of mutts...still letting my scheduled dog walker take my boys out today. Too late to cancel her and they need the exercise. I'm lucky to breath well enough to get them out in the yard.

Ok BIKer's....the Momentum WW plan. It's really a combination of the core program and the points plan. They've done away with core, encouraging you to eat more of the filling foods from core and count all your points. i.e, instead of eating two pieces of buttered reg toast, they want you to eat a veggie omelet (using two egg whites, one yoke) and a serving of fruit. Same points value, but more filling. It also appears like they have cut off the extra points you would get if you did additional exercise (which I never did). They want you to do 30 min of any exercise/day. You still get the same points and the same 35 extra points/wk. I'm on week one and we'll see how I do on tomorrow's WI.

Cristina--You'll be in my T&P's with Ernie dog on Friday. BTW, how old is he?

omf-ing......beet juice. The man next to me is pounding on his keyboard. Can't he be dainty like me???? It ANNOYS me!


I can't even talk now, I wanna kill him.

Cristina - Thanks for the new thread. Chuck E Cheese sounds like fun, too bad Gab is scared of Chuck, I would take her there more often. We are planning a bowling party for her instead. You're doing (as always ) really well on your exercise!! As far as the cut she said there was no time, unless she added it to 150 hours...., don't understand that. I just wanted 25 more minutes. lol

Katy - Thinking of you, hope you have a good doctors appt today.

Kathy - Where are you??? Miss you when you don't post.

Sue- Have fun in Vegas!

Gab had a good swim lesson last night and we headed to bed at 7pm, I felt guilty trying to get her to sleep before the Bachelor started. I don't know why it comes on at 8pm, seems early for that kind of show. I like (this week -lol) Stephanie who is way to classy for the show, she seems like such a kind hearted person. Melissa reminds me of Deanna, with her coloring....think Jason would be attracted to that.
Some of the ladies need to lay off the drinking at happy hour,geez.....maybe that is why it is so fun to watch?? lol

anyway - salad is made......purple onion,bell pepper, carrots,low fat cottage cheese ,kidney beans and some chicken tenderloin. I did get the munchies last night and had not one but two bowls of cheerios. If I can just knock off the late hour eating I would feel better.

to Jules, Francie, Sassy, Tammy, Mindee and Asia

better get to work.

doing my daily drop in....

Today is Tommy's lodge night, so it is me and the monsters! I swear Logan has turned into something else lately. you name it, he is doing it!

they fixed our window for us today, without charging us because they had extra panes of glass in the basement. they put up some more plastic over this one, and they also put up some plastic over our bedroom window as well.

Now, to explain the mystery with the head maintenance guy......a long time ago Tommy and him had it out over something that wasn't fixed in a timely fashion like it should have been done. So, Tommy let him have it, and apparently he doesn't feel comfortable around him or in our house for that matter. So, he will send the two other guys to come fix the stuff, and then if they need him for anything or he needs to bring them something, he will come over, then call one of them on the phone to come to the door to get whatever it is.

my WI is tomorrow, and I am seeing that AF is trying to rear her ugly head, so I am not going to be surprised at the WI in the morning! I took that liver flush and I am not sure if it really worked.

the kids are watching Fireman Sam. tonight it is going to be kid cuisines for them and a lean cuisine for me! unless they twist my arm into making something else, but I am not seeing that at all!

Hello Ladies

Well I woke up yesterday morning, after a only a few hours of sleep and weighed in at 229. So I lost all my Christmas pounds, and lost 1 extra. However, Cole had been up all night throwing up and coughing. So I spent all day doing the same. When I woke up this morning I weighed 225. I would do a happy dance, but I know that those extra 5 lbs is just water that I really need to drink today. Too bad.

SusieQ - Have you seen the show Mamma's Boys? Glad Gabby had a good swimming lesson. She will love the bowling party. When is her birthday? And wow, some lady wants to fatten you up? I guess you know that you are successful when someone wants to feed you. Although I must say that your salads sound pretty darn good, and make me want to eat them also. Did you get Gaby to sleep before your show?

Tammy - Congratulations on becoming a Grandma. I hope that you get well quickly. Do you get bronchitis often? Have fun with more wedding planning. Do you have anymore kids that you will need to help with wedding plans sometime in the future?

Cristina - How was Chuck E? Did you guys have fun? I am looking foreward to when Punkin is a little older and we can go out and do stuff like that. Sorry about Ernie. I got the WATP 3 miles with hand weights so that I can do that also. And 31 miles (closer to 31 than 30) is pretty darn good.

Sassy - Good luck with the house, I liked the pictures of them. I know exactly how you feel about wanting the fat gone now.

Francie - That must be great working out with Fonzo. At least you guys are able to spend more time together. Good job with the gym workout. What did you guys do today?

Mindee - Good luck with finding somewhere new to live. Glad Tommy will be getting his operation, and getting unemployment. Did anyone come to look at the window?

Katy - How did your appointment go? When does your DH get to leave on his trip?

Jules - Ok now this is too much. Your hubby is a good cook, but doesn't cook to often? MINE TOO. I will say there is nothing to make, and he asks shakes his head and pulls a bunch of stuff out and throws it all together and it always turns great. Why can't I do that? And its too bad that he doesn't cook more. However mine does do the dishes because I don't load the dishwasher quite right. Does Dave try to be a good dad? Is he trying to get Teri back?

Sue - I know that you are in Vegas, have a great time.

Ok, well it has taken me all day to actually type this. I am trying to get up off the couch, seems as I was sick yesterday, and not feeling to great today, no one has cleaned up all the puppy pee in the kitchen, so I must go and clean up all the paper, and mop the floor. Thankfully they are ready to go in about 1 more wee. Now she just has to find some homes for them.

Chat later

Thanks for all the good thoughts. The doc went fine, though it was all tests, so I really won't know what's going on with me until the tests come back. I have a follow up in 5 weeks. Might get a CT scan at that time if my hip pain doesn't go away. Anyhoo, the endometrial biopsy was PAINFUL, so I am on ibuprofen and have been curled up watching Season one of Mad men all day...just don't feel up to much else. Oh, and I got caught up on 24...looks like this season could be a good one for a change.

I watched part of the Bachelor last night, then fell asleep. I like Jillian and Stephanie so far..both seem as genuine as a person can be on this show...you're right, Susan, some of them need to step away from the mini-bar. They sure aren't showing much of Stephanie...seems like the producers do that at the beginning with the person who ultimately wins... so fingers crossed

Hope you are all having a good day!

OMG...I've been on this computer all day. I must have sent poor Lauren 6 emails with 5-6 links on each one for her to look at stuff. Between that and coughing.....have done very little. Sent dh out to pick up dinner.

Kathy--I have pretty severe asthma which is mostly controlled by 5 meds a day. I know, sounds like alot but I'm used to it and certainly refuse to let it stop me but unfortunately when I catch a cold or such it can quickly turn to bronchitis or pnuemonia. Only about once a year thankfully. As for any more wedding plans, I don't think so. This will probably be the last. Don't know what my step-d's preference might be in a lifetime partner. She has not ever hinted to her sexual preference

Katy--I love 24. Was glued to it the past two nights. Hope you feel better soon. Take care and best wishes with your test results.

back again.....

the kids are all asleep and it is before 8pm! YES!!! now the down side from that is that they will all be up at the butt crack of dawn! although now I hear that Marissa is still awake, but she is being quiet, for now anyways!

I will be so happy when we get out of this place! for the past couple of weeks now we have been dealing with ants. last week, the guy came out and took care of the ants in the kitchen......and tonight I found them in our bathroom! I have cleaned off the counter and I just found four more. He told us last week that if what he sprayed in the kitchen doesn't work then to call him back in a week and we can try something else that is stronger. I will let Tommy know that I found some more, and we will more then likely be calling the office manager and telling her that they are now in the bathroom.

Kathy~ Thanks for the good luck! we are surely going to need it! I hope you start to feel better soon. Yes, the guys came and looked at the window. And in fact, the head maintenance guy came over, stood on the sidewalk, then walked away and sent the other two guys over to take care of the window.

Katy~ I hope you start to feel better soon! Good luck with your testing.

Tammy~ You are still planning like a mad woman, aren't you? We are planning on a dinner out on Thursday. Brandon's school does a little fundraiser kind of thing at the local Wendy's so we are thinking of going there for dinner. Tommy said it will be his last hoorah to his gall bladder before his surgery on Friday.

No word on Mom yet...she's going to call tomorrow. Stayed home from work with a migrane today.

Mindee-yuck about the ants...Teri's room was invaded by ladybugs when we first moved here. SHe sucked them up with the vaccum cleaner.

Tammy--busy lady!! Hope you feel better soon

Katy--I have started watching the Bachelor this year cause you all like it so much. I like Stephanie too...and I think Melissa?? the one from TX he went on the blimp ride with. There's another one I like but I forgot her name. Hope they get some results to make the pain seem at least like you needed to do it.

Kathy--our hubby's are long lost relatives..we just don't know it. Dave would love to get back with Teri...she was his meal ticket and he still lied and cheated on her more than once and choose to pick fights instead of just saying he wanted to go see his friends. As far as being a good Dad, he's not as good Dad as he thinks he is. BTW--wtg on the loss!!

SuzyQ--reading the posts backwards and it seems I like the same ones you do. Beet juice...now I want some beets...no killing annoying men...if you got started you would never be able to stop and become a serial killer and profiled on America's Most Wanted and women would want to become like you....and have the courage to start disposing of their annoying men...

Cristina--wtg on your loss too and your exercise......Our the salads at your Chuckee Cheeses really expensive?? We got the one serving and got a tiny little bowl--should have went for the all you could eat. Have fun with Cambrie!!!

Sassy--Tammy explained it perfectly...I like the meetings accountability, but the online looks good too. Join now with the free membership and try it out a few weeks...what's there to lose...but some pounds....I am losing slowly, but I always do...it's why I let myself get frusttrayed and quit. Quitting is not getting it done so I will take the slow.

Sue--have a safe trip and a fun time!!

Francie--Did I see a movie advertised about the Shopaholic Books you like?? How did the gym/walking go today??

What happenned to Asia????

well, I am going to check out a few other sites and then go to bed. I still have a dull headache and feeling a little sick on the stomach after the migrane passes.

I am back again!

I am doing some research on some things and we think that Logan might have ADHD. So, we are going to be calling the pediatrician on that issue in the morning.

Tommy brought home a nice surprise from his lodge meeting.......he got two tickets to the Wings game the day after his birthday! So we will be going to that just the two of us!!!!!!

Hello All.

Thank You Tammy for the info!

Jules -- I think I will try it out, like you said, what do I have to lose but FAT!!! And I can use all the help I can get!

Here is a poem that is on my bookmark I am currently using in the book I am reading right now that I wanted to share:

Don't Quit
by : Jill Wolf


I had my spring green salad lastnight for lunch with red peppers and my low-fat dressing. It was soooo tasty! I even had my coworker wanting some so since we bought such a HUGE container of spring greens, I brought some in for her. I brought it in again tonight for my lunch and this time cut up my cucumber to add to it too.

I am gonna use the snap peas I bought with the stir-fry I want do with the skinless, boneless chicken I have. I also have frozen veggies that go into it, peppers & onions. So I plan on making that.

I also have what they call an "Immunity Boost" It has Broccoli, red and yellow peppers, in a garlic infused Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Seasoning. I also got some of those Green Giant "Steamers" too. Very convenient for work and that helps esp with my shift. lol.

My coworker/friend went home early. They are fixing the plumbing in her bathroom so they were tearing in to the walls yesterday while she was trying to "sleep" and needless to say she didn't get any. So she came in and then was gonna leave at midnight (she works 9 pm - 9:30 am) so I told her she should just login and then stay a little bit then leave because you lose the same point regardless after a half-hour. (our attendance is in points) So she stayed until a little after 10 then left. I told her next time to stay home and call our boss and as long as I am here, he will most likely approve her off, as I have done it before. Only I emailled him in the am and then he called and left me a vm letting me know I could have that night off. That way you don't have to drive in and don't lose any points. It stinks being alone, but I would much rather be alone then deal with her complaining and everything about being tired and not feeling well, etc. lol.

Well I wish you all the best!
