HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY EVERYONE!!!!!

(at least to all of you who are moms...... )

This weekend has been a real bust! I've actually ordered dinner out twice this weekend because I just don't feel like cooking. I didn't want what we got, but I ate way too much anyway. Just old habits sneaking back in when I'm so distracted with the show.

SO, I'm going to plan plan plan today and use the crock pot all week so I don't have to even think about dinner. This week is the most stressful I have all year long........so I know if I plan for it, I can sail through it easily. I've actually gained a few pounds over the past few weeks.......really slacking on the exercise.

Once the show is over, I'm planning to hit the workouts hard again. I want to feel strong........I feel really wimpy right now.

Amanda Panda------the best thing you can do to keep motivated and headed in the right direction is to come here as often as you can. Even if you don't have anything to say except chit chat. It helps keep your head focused in the right place. At least that's what has helped me. Keep trying, you'll pull out of this funk soon.

WELCOME JAYMIE.......This is a great place to be!

Congrats to all you losers last week!! Can't wait to start posting losses again.

Faye, glad things are looking brighter your way. My brother and father are bi-polar and my uncle is schizophrenic, so I know what you mean about the flip-flopping.

Silly poll---I've got a huge sewing room over the garage just waiting for sheetrock right now! I also want to build a dance studio.

Well, gotta go hang with the family!

Later babes,
Julie

Hello

WELCOME JAYMIE!!!

Poll - Faye, thanks for remembering me in the dorm room This place just screams "I was built in the 70's!" The whole thing actually is getting remodeled this summer though...but of course I won't be living here. There is a little house a couple friends of mine and I are looking at...And the 1st thing I would do with that is trim the terrible overgrown bush out in front of it, sweep the pine needles off the roof, and tear out some ugly cabinets on the inside.

Ugh, ok. I've really not been doing well at all. Very bad in fact. And I need to make the decision right here and now that I am going to eat healthily. Its been getting out of hand and I've not been exercising either. Besides this show taking up so much time and energy...it also has lead naturally to more social activity (cast parties, going out to restaraunts after rehearsal) than normal which is where I really break down on food.

Default Happy Mother's Day!

The Yes concert so outstanding! We were late and missed the first 20 minutes which must have included "owner of a lonely heart." My dh was so disappointed since that was the main song he wanted to hear. But they played for 3 hours! It was awesome. We left and had a late dinner (early Mom's Day) at the Outback.

I did not have a stellar day yesterday - my knee is still killing me so I can't treadmill. But I did get do 200 crunches this a.m. and 40 pushups! Started on my first 50 oz bottle of water. Still going to try to make 220 by Friday's departure to FLA.

Silly poll for today - we are soooo tired of working on the bathroom (since December!) we have decided our next project - the kitchen - will be contracted out. I am going to recover our dining chairs and our family room loveseat myself this summer and finish all the window treatments.

Have a great day!

MONDAY: Today is Mission Monday and the mission this week is a little different. I think we can all use really good "tips" in our weight loss journey, so this week if you know any tips to share or see any in mags or on tv about helping to curb hunger, encourage exercise, etc. share with us and then everyone make yourself a list of the ones that would be beneficial to you. Feel free to contribute as many as you know.

Sorry I never got back in here yesterday, but by the time we got home got stuff dragged in, unloaded and such, then I HAD to go to the commissary yesterday as it is closed on Mondays and I needed groceries, came home and put all that away and in the mean time did up the laundry from the weekend and we went out and bought more stuff for the house with my winnings. My trip was my mother's day gift and I love getting stuff for the house.

Jaymi: Here are the stats on our group. If you don't see someone's they haven't given it to me so you will have to get to know them through the site!

Hi, my name is Faye, I am 50, have been married 31 years to a wonderful and totally supportive man, have two grown children, Jack, who is 30 and getting married April 10, and Kelly, who is 26, married and has given me an adorable grandson, Thomas who is 3. I have a Yorkie named Fortune and a cat named Butterscotch. I am not working right now, but have been looking. I exercise everyday if I can and my stats are at the bottom of my posts. I have a website: www.freewebs.com\trexnonny/ Please visit it and let me know what you think!

My long term goal is to be in much better shape and at a much lower weight by the time I start graduate school which is about a year and a half from now.

I like the normal things, movies, tennis, bike riding, photography and art in general. I'm looking forward to being part of your group.

About me: I am Kim; 26 years old, and just started
Nursing School. I have a degree from the University of
Oregon in biology (2001). I currently live with my
b.f., who will be leaving me to go back to work in
March (which I am scared of!) He works overseas as a
performing artist-comedian-juggler, and for the past 4
years I have been spoiled enough to have lived with
him half-time in Europe. It has been a terrific
adventure (but not cost-effective), and since I am in
school now, I can not go back for a while. I have
struggled with weight for a while, I have about 21
pounds to lose now to reach my goal weight of 158 lbs.
But who's counting? I am on a very lax plan now
focusing on exersize and eating awareness, not eating
control, and plan not to weigh myself for the next 16
weeks, as long as I stick to my plan. I have two
kitties on loan until march, and they are making life
very fun. I also have 2 goldfish, Beaky and Spot.



I'm a SAHM (with two parttime businesses) to two wonderful children, 14 and 6. I'm very fortunate to have a super supportive husband, but I need to lose some more weight. My highest was over 235, my lowest in ten years has been 185. I've been hovering back at 200 again, and want to get down at least 20 lbs initially, 40 ideally. I have hypothyroid and PCOS which makes the struggle even more frustrating and slow. My username Zookeeper16 came from a friend of mine. I have 2 dogs, an inside cat, a bird, a guinea pig and fish. Outside, we have 4 horses, 11 cats, 6 rabbits, 6 guinea hens, 2 peacocks, a pheasant and a bunch of chickens. Hence the zoo! It keeps me busy! I also do a lot of volunteer things for school/church and 4H, as well as serving on the Board of Education.


My name is Amanda, but everyone calls me Amanda456. I am 20 years old I live in saskatchewan canada with my boyfriend Chad, boarderCollie Tucker and cat Wrangler. I had a kidney transplant in 1999. I received my moms kidney. I am currently taking a home study course its an office course. I started gain weight when I was around 10 years old mostly from medication. My highest weight was 282 and I currently weight 258. I know that togethet we CAN DO THIS!!!! Welcome and good luck!!

My friends call me Anna, and I've had the online nickname of Trouble since 1994. I'm currently living in Jiangsu Province, China (if you want postcards, drop me an email), but I hail from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I left behind a supportive boyfriend and a cat who hates me, and I miss them both. I'm not as concerned about pounds as I am about feelings. I'm tired of not fitting into the same clothes that I was wearing a year ago. Some of them are really nice! Plus, I'm tired of being tired all the time. So, here I am, determined to get fit and lose some of this body. I'm mostly doing it through excersize: Wu Shu classes twice a week and running three times a week, plus free weights three times a week.

I am married second time around going on four years to a man I met on the internet. I have two daughters, Carrianne who is a senior in college and Taylor, age 13 at home, and 2 cats, Punk and Chloe. I weighed 118 in college and supported myself as a professional bellydancer. Gained weight with my first child and have continued to gain since. Highest weight was 238 this year. My goal is to get down to 140. I just want to feel good in a bathing suit again and 140 will allow me to do that and still show off my "assets."


I hope all you mommys (and for me Nonnys) had a great mother's day and got to spend quality time with your children. Share with us your day, your gifts, whatever you like.

***TIP*** Eating protein for breakfast helps the whole day with hunger so include lowfat sausage, milk, cheese, p butter, whatever into your breakfast for a good start

I had lunch with dd, she bought me a cute capri outfit, got a beautiful Ann Taylor scarf from my ds and ddil and some breast cancer m and m's (I guess they thought since they were tiny it was better than bigger candy! ) and my ddil made my son write a message on the card and he told me he loved me very much and I have been the most wonderful mother in the world.

Later girls

Faye

Morning chickies!

Today starts stress week from ****! But I'm determined to keep myself calm. I took my morning walk this morning and that helped. Now I just have to keep my mind on task and not head to the fridge in between projects.

Tips: two words........FROZEN GRAPES.....yum. Exercising on an empty stomach: calories burned come right from fat stores cuz there's nothing in your blood stream to draw from. Exercise first thing in the morning to "get it over with" (gives you energy all day and gives you a sense of accomplishment early in the day)......don't worry about numbers on the scale, pay attention to how you feel and how your clothes fit......talk to your support circle every day, if possible, it really helps keep your mind focused......take baby steps, one day at a time, and don't worry about the long haul (it will take care of itself).

Someone had a signature line on another thread that I just love......"the only way you can fail to reach your goal is if you stop before you get there!" I'm trying to think about that everyday.

Susan, I know what you mean about social stuff with shows.....is there any place you guys always go to? Maybe you can plan ahead for some healthy options at that place....if you plan ahead, you have much more control over the situation. THough I always ended up losing weight during shows in college. I lived on chocolate and coke, but I didn't have much time to eat.....so I guess I didn't eat much chocolate and coke.

Sandy, thanks for the update on Dorothy. Tell her we miss her and hope she can come back to us soon!

Ok, gotta fly....working on a 4 pointer today and all week!

Later babes,
Julie

Morning All - I have missed so much over the weekend that i am not going to try and do personal shout outs !

I had a pretty good weekend, except for the fact that our air conditioning went out over the weekend, it was like 85 in there yesterday, we were so miserable, we were sticking to the leather furniture, a cold shower was my best friend, seems like every year it is either the heat or the air, when you own a house it is always something it seems, oops wait - I guess this isnt Weds woes huh??

I did well over the weekend on my program, I went over some yesterday evening with salty take out pizza ( it was good ), but had a very light lunch of chicken and wild rice so shouldnt be that bad on me...gotta drink alot of water today...

Girls - Please pray for my friend here at work, Diane, she lost her husband Saturday night to cancer. She is only 39 and this is very hard on her ( he was in his early 50's )...please keep her in your prayers , thanks.

Have a good day all of you.

Good Morning

Julie - The last musical I did in High school I lost 15 pounds! it was great, except that the reason I lost it was because I was stuck at the school for 10-12 hours a day and only ate a cherry coke or two and a pack of yogurt pretzels while I was there. Ahhhhh teenage nutrition.

Carri - Will of course keep your friend in thoughts and prayers today.

I'm going to try to get back into exercise this week. I'm hopeing if I can do that things will fall into place again.

Good afternoon! Whew, what a day I have had. Besides starting tom and all the junk that involves, because of the hormonal flux, I get menopausal issues to deal with too! Anyway, I digress, I touched up my mantel where dh had gotten ceiling paint on it, painted the red bricks on the fireplace a faux gray stone and they look fabulous with the blue walls, touched up part of the bathroom countertop where somehow water had gotten under the paint and bubbled it, cleaned the blasted file cabinet out completely and took all the drawer stuff up to my office so we can move the cabinet upstairs (what a job that was including 4 lawn and leaf bags of garbage from the drawers.) I sprayed all the weeds where I have a flower type bed around my deck so that everything is dead and we can begin putting in the white marble stones we bought yesterday with my casino winnings. I am pooped needless to say and am glad dh is cooking outside on the grill so I don't have to cook tonight. When he grills he does it all, bless his heart.

Julie: We are here for you in the stressful moments! You are doing a great job so keep up the good work!

TIP: When you are finished eating for the day completely, remove yourself from where the food is, ie if you have computer, bedrooms, whatever upstairs, go upstairs, if you live in one story, stay away from the kitchen and keep your hands busy. Make sure you clean up right after dinner, so that later on you don't have to face food being open and out for the picking. Dispose of leftover food by making it inedible, iec hot sauce, pepper, salt, vinegar, spit , whatever!

Have a great afternoon ladies. I am going to start another load of clothes and read.

Hi Everyone

Nothing much to say its windy today so no garden work for me so i guess i'll have to catch up with some jobs around the house. Or, i could always exercise could'nt i? I was watching the news this morning and the deck of a house not so far away collapsed there was about 30 people on it too posing for a photograph, poor devils no-one was killed thankfully and judging from what i've seen they were extremely lucky. It was an older house so they think the deck was'nt inspected, which is scary i questioned hubby about ours and i've been reassured that ours is totally above board and its not an old house anyway. I don't think i'd want to go on any deck with 30 people crammed on it would you?

Hi guys!

I also haven't got much to report . I had a 3 point day yesterday - probably because their was no 'naughty' food in the house, and I couldn't be bothered to go out - but I'll take the points anyway!!

I have PMS and I always get a craving for sweets (candy?). I don't eat them at any other time, but during my PMS time I always dream of going into a sweet shop and buying lots of pick n' mix - then I wake up with a big craving and have to buy some!! Normally, I will take a bus ride into the town especially to buy some pick and mix, then come straight home - BUT - I haven't given into my craving yet this month, although my PMS is far from over!

I forgot to tell you guys that a few days ago I had a take away pizza - we had a bit of extra money and thought we would have a treat. I really wasn't sure about having one, as I'd not had one for 3 weeks and I didn't want to fall back into old habits - normally I would jump at the chance! Anyway, I had one and it tasted good - but afterwards I felt physically awful!. I had really awful indigestion and felt so blocked up and uncomfortable that I had trouble sleeping. I woke up feeling really sick and couldn't shake it off all morning. I felt so awful, that I just don't think it's worth having a takeaway pizza anymore - it tasted nice, but it's not worth the discomfort! so that is really good news - it will certainly help my diet, as you all know that takeaway pizza's have always been my downfall. It's one thing to resist them, but another thing altogether to just not like them anymore!

CARRI - your poor friend! I will say a prayer for her.

SANDY - Thanks for the news on Dot, I miss her! I'm glad she is doing well and has met a nice man!

Oh look, I did have something to say after all!!!!

Love Amanda xx
