WEDNESDAY: Today is Wednesday's woes. Got something we can help with?

Morning ladies. Sandy/Gigglez ask that you ladies pray for her mom. She has to have some surgery to take out some metal in her leg or something like that. She said she would be offline for awhile but to think about her. So, we are going to pray for her mom and her continued success while she is away from us!

I am cleaning dd's house today so I will check in as soon as I can.

Susan: Nice list, Susan and they don't called it "morbidly" obese because it makes you healthy so it is a good thing you are catching on at a younger age. I was not so lucky and am not struggling with things I probably wouldn't have had to if I had taken charge of my life early on!

Later!

Faye

Morning ladies!

Yesterday was a 2 pointer.....
I don't know what's going on, but I just can't stop snacking! This whole week I've been craving more and more food. Thank goodness there's nothing terrible in the house for me to eat. I know some people think that if you eat sugar or other high carb snacks, it starts a craving cycle that is tough to break. Maybe that's what happened....I had a bunch of chocolate on Sat. and since then I've been craving. Gotta STOP!!

I'll keep Sandy in my prayers.....
Faye, that is so awesome that you could give Thomas a piggy back ride!!!!! :clap: :clap: I'll bet he'll remember that when he's older. He's old enough to remember this big transition you're going through, and someday you'll hear from him how proud he is of you.

Not much to report here.......still too cold to get spring fever. Actually, I'm going a little squirrely being stuck inside so much. READY FOR SPRING NOW PLEASE!

Everyone have a great day!
Julie

Morning :sunny

Thanks for all of the well wishes for the mole removal, it is still pretty sore at times but will get better...I was reading up on what my dermatologist thought it was that she removed ( a keloid I think ) and if she is right it has a 50% chance of coming back bigger in the same spot...so I am very depressed about that right now, BIG WEDS WOE!!! I had my family doctor and another dermatologist tell me it was not one of those, so I guess I just go on and hold hope that it is not what she thinks it is.... I just hate to think that I went through all of this for nothing...

Anyway another 3pt day yesterday, no exercise, it was only in the high 30's yesterday evening and with my arm sore I didnt think I should get the blood pumping there, it still leaks fairly bad, gonna try today if it is a little
warmer

Amanda - I dont think you have to give up Pizza altogether but I think you need to eat a kind that you can stick to your points with, Pizza Hut has a new pizza out, I dont know what it is called, but I think it is only like 3 points per slice...so you could have like 2 or 3 slices and then still stay within plan...sometimes we think we cannot eat something when we can IF we eat in moderation....Also I did what you are doing at first to - but then I got serious and the weight started coming off, and once that happened I was on a roll and no one ( or any food ) is stopping me from getting to goal this year...you CAN do it!!!!

Julie - Dont feel so bad, they sometimes are bodies are more hungry for a few days, at least you are not snacking on junk...although maybe you should have stayed away from the chocolate!!!! ha!!

I will keep Gigglez family in my prayers....

Faye - Good job on the list, I am still thinking about it, I have alot of them...

Hope everyone has a good morning!!!

Good morning!
Feeling great this morning once again.
4 points for yesterday.

Something interesting came up last night in a discussion: what do we do to make ourselves happy...that doesn't work: watching a lot of television, over use of alcohol, things that distract us from the world and our own life. Of course food came to mind. We all enjoy sweets and fats, because lets face it...they taste good. But in the end we are nowhere near happy. Just a thought I wanted to share.

I hope everyone is doing well. Julie, don't beat yourself up too much for the snacking, just work on it.

Have a great day!

Hi all!

Well I went to my WW class - I've put on 2lb. But that is not too bad, I can lose that in a week no problem! I thought it was going to be much worse - things didn't start well when my lightweight trousers that I always wear to weigh in felt far too tight, so i had to wear some heavier ones! I've had PMS and water retention for over 2 weeks now - my period is 10 days late - but don't worry, I'm not pregnant (I don't think so!). I think it is down to stress - things have been very tough over the past few weeks, so it's probably affecting my body.

I got 3 points yesterday.

I am going to have a really strict month to try to give my weight loss a boost - i agree with you Carri, once the weight really starts coming off, I won't want to do anything to spoil that!

Take care

Amanda xx

JUST A QUICK THOUGHT...WHAT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON THAT PROMPTED YOU TO LOOSE THE WEIGHT AND GET HEALTHY...FOR ME,when I realized I was facing some real health issues that would soon lead to death..it was the cold hard facts of what I was doing to myself and said this is enough of this...no one can change this but me...my choice and no one could do this but me...and being raised with food as a big part of rewards and love ,and entertaining,big family get togethers, it just played such a big part of my life ..cooking the old way..lot's of seasonings of the wrong kind,there was major thinking and changing to accomplish....NOW, I totally think different and do things differently...like the way I cook being the biggest thing....amazing how changing simple little things can bring big changes...was just doing some thinking as I was working outside ...it's such a beautiful day here...60 and sunny,with a slightly cool breeze ...just thinking our goals are just around the corner and we can succeed,all we have to do is make that turn...clmb out of that hole and live that life ...it's out there and it's up to us to make the most of it..... love all of yall....later...Joy

Let me clarify something for things I say regarding this from now on. When I tell someone they should give something up forever or for an extended period of time, it is for things you simply don't seem to be able to keep in control and most of us have at least one of those things. I agree with Carri, with regards to Amanda and pizza that changing the type she eats etc is helpful, but again IF you cannot control it, GET RID OF IT! I firmly believe there are things in our lives that we just cannot get over the top of and for our betterment, the only recourse is to get it out of our lives!

Whooopeee! I got a BMI today and have lost 4.5% body fat since December!

Gotta go get Jack from work. Man am I ever bushed from the house cleaning! It was a real job today combined with the fact the little one came downstairs with, "Nonny, I am hungry can you fix me some pancakes?" I told him he would have to wait for his mom, but I should have known they were little frozen ones in the freezer (she is NOT a scratch cook, bless her) and so I fixed him breakfast and cleaned it up, then went back to cleaning her house. My muscles are screaming so I may take a night off from treadmill work.

Gotta run!

Faye

Good Evening all
On a happy note: I seem to have worked going to the gym into my regualar schedule. I go straight there from somewhere else...so I don't have to be sitting at home thinking "should I?"..its just too bad my entire schedule is changing soon.
On a frustrating note: What do I do with my life? I'm just a little lost at the moment...here's the story...I'm an english major...I intend to be an english teacher someday...I'm also theater minor...I love theater, its just in me. So I have this choice...stick with the origional plan, or, double major in those two subjects. The thought of the double major makes me rather happy, I love theater that much. BUT that would require an extra year to complete and that much more $$$. blah. That's just my vent Wednesday woe I guess.

Morning Ladies,

2 points again yesterday........sigh. Got the exercise and water. I think I'm suffering from phs (premature hallucinations of spring!) Last week I was so motivated and excited, cuz it was in the 40s and 50s. Now it's back to grey and cold, and after all it is still March. The snow is melting, but not fast enough. The ice is still 3 feet thick on the ponds.......oh well. I'm just gonna keep on keepin' on until the blahs pass.

Susan, about the theater major thing. I was a theater major, spent 10 years in various colleges, never did get a degree cuz I couldn't decide what I was going to do. THe only thing you need a theater major for is to teach theater in a college! Unless you need your Equity card and are going on the road with a broadway touring company, no one is going to much care if you were a theater minor/major or even anything. Most directors and producers of local and community theater will just be grateful for your help, no matter what your training. Now, if you intend to make a living in the theater.....get that major, but you better be totally committed because there's about a million other theater geeks out there that want the same job you do and therer aren't that many jobs!!! IMHO, stick with the English degree. At least you'll be able to get a job, AND you will still be able to do all the theater stuff too. NOw, if you have the funds to go to school longer.....that's another story. Just my two cents. (I'm only a little bitter about the fact that everyone told me to "have fun" at college and never mentioned that pesky "you gotta find a job when you get out" thing. )

Amanda, Great Attitude about your weight gain! You'll melt it off this week, I'm sure.

Faye, I sure hope your daughter pays you to clean her house!!!!! My mom would bust a gut if I suggested she clean for me. Great news about the BMI!

Cat, I've had a pain in the side of my foot for about a month now. Right down the top of the foot on the right side. Guess I might have sprained it or something.

Well, gotta fly.......lots to do today.
Later,
Julie

Morning Girls

Well I am still frozen, woke up this morning and it was 62 degrees in the house!! the heat was not working, I got up and checked around ( after I made sure that I paid the bill, ha ) and I didnt see anything but my husband will need to check it when he gets up...funny that on the coldest night we have had in a while - the heat goes out ... I really dont need a repair bill right now so I am keeping my fingers crossed that dh can fix...

I had 4 points yesterday !!! I got outside and walked, today will be another story though, 36 degrees for a high I think, way too cold....
Julie - I am with you, I have had it with the ups and downs of temps, I want SPRING !!!

Have a good one all !!!
