Good Morning lovelies!

Faye, have a great trip! I'm praying for you to have a safe and happy time. Wish I were going somewhere too.

I got 3 points yesterday.....yes, I drank my water! But I didn't exercise....and I felt like crap all day because of it. The weather here is really jerking me around emotionally. It's cold and grey and rainy/snowy and is supposed to be the same for the foreseeable future. So, this morning I got up and decided I wasn't going to let it bother me today. I took my walk and feel so much better now. Cat, I know what you mean about things falling into place in the Spring and summer. Today I will keep reminding myself that I managed to LOSE during the winter! It might not be as much as I wanted, but I still LOST. That is so hard for me to do, and I did it! Yay me. Once spring and summer really kick in, then I can push myself harder. But it's not a bad thing to be gentle when you need it.

I didn't lose anything this week. I did see 207 on the scale briefly at the beginning of the week, but I think it was a fluke. I really didn't do much this week, so I don't feel bad. Next week will be better.

Well, gotta get the kids to school! I'm so proud of each and every one of you girls.......you are making an incredible journey and you are succeeding!!!

Everyone have a GREAT day!
Julie

Default Morning All ...

Hello, I know this is not Weds woes day but boy I am feeling sick this morning...I dont know why, sick to my stomach and my neck hurts, which is making my head hurt a little ... I know I slept wrong on my neck but my stomach is really bothering me. And no I am not pregnant

I did end up losing only "1" pound this week, but I guess it is better than gaining, considering the bad weekend I had last week.

I will check in later, hopefully I will feel better ...

Have a good day all ....

Hi Ladies,
Pounds down huh? Well, I lost two pounds. And 3 inches! Yeah! I know I have gotten stronger; I have really been working at the gym.

I have been OP for 11 days now, with no slips. Yesterday I had a hard day. Only 2.5 points. I got to school late so I was down on my water (I tend to only drink at school) and, while I went to the gym (and had a great workout ) I, excuses coming... didnít go run/walking because it was raining. Hard! Flooding in fact, and quite miserable out.

Yes, I was also being lame. At least I went to the gym.

I am letting myself off plan for easter. But not too far. There are some easter candy that I really enjoy and I have not had this season. I will be upping my daily sugar intake on easter to allow me to indulge in some of these things, because after easter they will not be available for a year.

On the other had I would love to be down to 190 lbs before then. And I am looking forward to getting back to the 180s which I havenít seen since the way up here.

Julie - hang in there. Spring is always grey up here, and muddy but then when you think you can't handle a day more the sun shines and there are dandelions evreywhere.

Carri - I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hopefully you will feel better soon. And I recommend a hot bath will make your neck feel better.

Have a great day ladies.

Hi Girls!
I'm just saying a quick hello. My diet has gone to pot (again!) - but I am going through a very stressful period in my life, so I'm TRYING not to beat myself up about it. Once the funeral is over and things start to get back to normal I will get back into it.

I never realised how much stress their is when someone dies - along with the obvious grief and loss, there are so many arrangements to make for the funeral. Poor Nigel has been on the phone for 6 hours a day trying to organise everything - it is all the more difficult because of Easter. The priest more of less said to Nigel that Easter week was his busiest week of the year and it was very inconsiderate for Nigel to be trying to book a funeral!

On a more positive note - I had a job interview today. the job is working in a residential home for children with learning difficulties, which is something I have done before and really enjoyed. i think the interview went well - but i will have to wait and see! I've also joined an employment agency who are very keen and have several possible vacancies for me - so hopefully I will be back at work soon! I actually think that being in work will really help my diet - having a regular routine will help me structure my eating habits.

Take care !

Love Amanda xxx

Amanda, what a moron that priest is sorry, but i think that he is the inconsiderate one to be so rude to someone who has just lost their mother
with the job hunting

Faye, i did'nt realise you had left i'm sure you'll have a wonderful time

Its just like a summer's day here hard to believe its only April i think i might even sunbathe this afternoon

Happy Saturday
Did pretty well yesterday. I did my usual amount of exercise but it took me a lot longer to complete that usual, and I cut my weight training short, not because my muscles were tired but because my BRAIN was tired. However, I did use the pool for the first time! After my workout I thought I would just take a few minutes in the hot tub...but after that I thought what the heck and did a few laps. I stuck to the "slow lane". It was quite relaxing. I plan on doing more...but not too often because of the absolute HAVOC it reeped on my hair.

Morning all,
Just thought I'd check in. Looks like everyone's out enjoying the weekend. I've lost track of my points the past two days. Working hard to get everything ready for my show. Had a long rehearsal yesterday and got to go see a play with my younger daughter. That was so nice! One of her friends was in a production of The King and I, so we went to see her. It's funny, as much of a theater junkie as I am, I really don't just go to SEE it very often. Probably because I have to spend $100 by the time I pay for tickets and a baby sitter, etc. etc. etc.

It's still cold and gloomy here........so you all send some of that sunshine this way, ok?

Talk to you all tomorrow!

Julie

hello
Slow weekend huh?
I'm off to the gym in a few...to work off the iced latte I'm having its such a nice day!
<-- this is what I would like to do to all college students who's idea of fun on a saturday night is to get drunk and prank call people at midnight!
I was fast asleep at midnight and the phone started ringing...I didn't realize what was going on till the answering machine picked up and I hear..."I was just wondering...if you were hot....and a girl...yeah let me know" click. the poor kid sounded tired and out of it. He was probably put up to it. but GRRR! It was not long after that someone started yelling right outside my window.
Anyway, vent completed. At least I have an amusing story to tell.
