Good morning. Chrissy, I spent a good part of yesterday thinking about you. Is that monster in jail for the rest of his sorry life now? I know I talked about maggots last time I was here and I guess that description fits him.

Oh sorry, I didn't mean to start my post with more gross talk. Yesterday we filled up that dumpster big time! Didn't think we had so much JUNK!!! But the back yard is all cleared out now and it's finally time for getting the garden all prepared and planted. The dumpster should be picked up and gone by the time we get home today. And speaking of picked up, Mr. Watson is home sweet home. Yay! He was feeling a bit punk for a while but he's on pain pills and antibiotics and was looking much better this morning. Sandi, I've decided that I'm going to start brushing his teeth regularly so he doesn't have to go through this again too soon. And neither does my wallet!!!

Oh but speaking of wallets, I got my security and pet deposits back from my apartment complex yesterday! Lots of bucks to go into the "Vegas Fund". Well, after I spend just a little on Jo. Maybe some new clothes. Oh but I have to tell you! I didn't want to wear jeans yesterday (too hot) so I dug out some old light weight cotton pants from years ago...and they fit!!!! It was nice being able to wear light pants and a sleeveless shirt ... even though my upper arms are not too attractive. Hm, guess I'll have to dig out my little dumb bells too.

OK, the real reason for my post here today. Whatever happened to our short-term challenges? We gotta bring those back. Maybe we can start with a Memorial Day challenge?? Let's see. 33 days until Mem Day. I'd like to lose 6 lbs. by then. That's doable, I think. Anyone else?

Having said that, I made the mistake of getting on the scale this morning and am NOT happy. I'm hoping it's only because I didn't get in much water yesterday. I'm already on my second bottle this morning to make up for it. We'll just see how it goes.

Better go now. A few things to catch up on. Have a great day everyone!
Much love, Jo.

Default Hey everyone, this is Sharon-not CJ!

Hi guys,
Since Ken and I were going to Florida and would be still there on Tuesday when the sentencing was going to be, we wouldn't be able to come to Michigan for that. But I really was bummed that I would not be able to be there for the end of it all. Soooo we decided to come home early and than I could go on Monday myself and drive to Michigan to be here. I just really wanted to come the full circle and have complete closure and make sure for myself that justice would be done for my brothers killer.

I didn't tell anyone here that I was coming for the sentencing, not my dad, Papa, or even Chrissy and CJ didn't know I would be here. I just went to my sister in law Chrissy's house and snuck up to the door and surprised her. LOL She was so happy that I came to see the sentencing. Than I called my dad and told him I was in town and he was pretty happy too.

The sentencing went really well. The judge gave Robert Persons life with no parole for the 1st degree murder charge, than another life with no parole for the felony murder and than a 30 to 40 year sentence for the armed robbery charge. So in all he will NEVER EVER see the light of day and he will not get out till they carry him out feet first when he dies in prison. That scumbag will NEVER hurt another human being again like he did my brother. My nieces Emily and Ellen-Chrissy and my brother Rick's daughters wrote a speech and got to go to up the microphone and tell everyone how their Dad's murder affected their lives and everyone around them. They did such a beautiful job that we all cried buckets all during their speech. They directed their words and their anger at Robert Persons. They more or less said that we were all glad that he would spend the rest of his miseable life rotting in prison in his little tiny cell for what he did to Rick. He heard them we knew that by the way he looked and his expressions. At least he heard their words and I hope he thinks about them EVERY SINGLE DAY for the rest of his pathetic life.

We all felt so much better afterwards and we left the courthouse in Detroit feeling like we have complete closure at last.

Chrissy is doing better now that this is finally over, finally after almost 2 years now. I have spend lots of time with her and we had a celebration yesterday and all went out to lunch afterwards. Now we will all TRY to go on with our lives if that is possible, but we know that things will NEVER be the same without my dear brother, Chrissy's husband and Emily and Ellen's Dad Rick.

I called CJ last night and told her I was in town, so we just got back from lunch at the Ram's Horn.We were pretty good although I don't know with all that I have been eating out, starting with going to Florida and all that seafood and now here, I just hope that when I go back to my WW meeting I won't be up 10 pounds. LOL Anyways CJ and I have had a nice visit today.

Tonight Papa and I are going over to Chrissy's for dinner. She is working at the hospital today so we should have a nice evening with her and Emily and Ellen.
I have enjoyed seeing her, the girls and my dad once again. Even if it was under these circumstances.

I am not sure when I am going home yet. Sometime this weekend. I am all done working so I am open, but it will be probally sometime this weekend.

Well time to get off here and CJ and I are going to go out in her rock garden and enjoy the beautiful sunny day.

I will try to post again when I can and address everyone.

Love you guys, Sassy Sharon

Default I'm leaving....on a jet plane.....

Hi and goodbye Ladies. Just found out yesterday that I need to attend a meeting for work. No problem..right? Wrong! Dh is also away(as per usual) and had to find sleeping arrangements for the two boys and the dog....keeping in mind bus schedule,daycare dropoff times, afterschool programs, carseats,clothes etc etc etc. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! There that feels better....and oh, arrange this in a matter of a few hours, while booking a ticket to fly half way across Canada. So I'm writing this now....with a very quiet house...nothing stirring not even a mouse. What a wierd sensation....when you're normally used to a hustle and bustle house and then ......theres JUST QUIET. So I'll be thinking of you all.....drinking all that water, munching on those low fat snacks,counting those points, crunching carrots,working out and sweating....I'LL BE DOING THAT TOO!! I'm packing my w/o gear and plan on a big jug of water right in front of me at my meeting, dashing for the salad bar and walking on meeting breaks....WISH ME LUCK!!! See everyone back here ....Monday night the 30th.

Hi Girls:

Been quite awhile since I have posted last. But I have been lurking and reading all of your postings. I miss you all.

I see that Sharon, my sister-in-law, has posted and kept you all up to date. Thanks Sharon. The sentencing went well without any surprises. About time eh? Two life sentences, both with no chance of parole! Thank the Lord! Both my daughters, Emily and Ellen, had their own speeches. They both did so well. I was so very proud of them. I felt Rick from above beaming with pride. They really gave it to Robert Person. First, Emily gave her speech. Emily is my oldest. Emily really looks alot like her father. And in many ways is alot like him too. She had a very nice and effected speech. At the end of her speech, she told Robert Person that it comforts her to know that he will rot in prison for the rest of his life. Then Ellen got up. It was her turn. She really gave it to him. Big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I felt like jumping up out of my seat yelling.......You go Ellie!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe that was my daughter speaking up there. And to top it off, I saw reactions from Robert Person. He kept glancing up at the girls and was squirming in his chair!!!!! They got to him. Just what I wanted. In fact, he looked like he was going to get up and say something, but it also looked like his attorney stopped him. She said something to him, but he ended up not saying anything. Which was probably for the best because he doesn't need the last word in this. I tell you, I cannot believe that it is over with. At least this part of it. The big part. What a relief, but on the other hand, reality has set in.......Richard is dead. I feel that with all of these court hearings, motions, appeals, mistrials, all of this crap, kept Richard's name alive. In my mind, I didn't bury him yet. I buried Rick body, but not him. Tomorrow morning, I plan on going to the cemetery alone and telling Rick that it's time I have to get on with it. I have to bury Rick. I will never stop loving my husband. He was the love of my life. The father of my children. I miss him everyday and will never forget him. But tomorrow I will go and just talk with him. Please, all don't think that I am crazy, just something that I have to do. Today I went to work and had a very hard time. I cried alot at work. It felt good too. Rick is gone.....he is dead. Even though it's been a year and a half now, it just now sinking in.

I love all you ladies. Maybe now I can just post now and try to loose some of these pounds that I gained when I quit smoking. Have to admit, some of my pants are somewhat tight!!!!!! UGH!!!!!!!!! LOL But, I sure can breathe better, and feel healthier.

ANGEL EYES - Have a good trip. Try and have some fun.

JUDY - Sorry to hear about Cal. I do think of you and pray for you and Cal. Please do take care of yourself Judy. You are so important.

JO - Thanks so much for thinking about me! Thanks too for the nice birthday card! I love reading your posts. You make me laugh. I guess me being a nurse, maggots don't gross me out. Believe me, I have seen worse! I could really gross you all out with patient stories. But, I am so very happy that you and Rich are happy. It sure seems like you both are!

GAIL - Hope that you are doing well. I think of you often. ((GAIL))

SANDI - Miss you girlfriend!!! Yeah, I can see Spence right now cleaning Shadow's teeth!! LOL I hope that Shadow doesn't jump on the couch. She would get into trouble! LOL

KIM - Sounds like you are having a rough time. My mother lives in a nursing home. It is hard to see her there. Try to take just one day at a time Kim!

SAM - Congratulations on the new baby! Hope that you and the little one are adjusting well. Try to get some rest too kiddo! Being a new mum take adjustments also. Can't wait to see the pictures of you and the baby!

MARYK - Hope that all is well you too! Thanks for the birthday wishes!

SHARON - So glad that you made it to Michigan! I love you so Sharon! ((((Sharon)))) I know that it wouldn't of been complete for you if you didn't come for the sentencing.

CJ - Heard that you and Sharon had lunch at the Ram's Horn today. Hope that you two had a nice lunch! I worked today!! UGH......but that is life I guess. I will send you some updates on my weight and all. Would like to take off a few pounds or so. Are you and Dick going up to the cabin soon?

To everyone that I haven't addressed ((((((BIG HUGS)))))! Maybe if I posted more I wouldn't have this problem. I really need to go to bed now. I am so very tired. Had a very emotional day. Tomorrow Sharon and I are going to hang out. I guess that I will be going to her father's house after I see my mother and then I will go to the cemetery.

Take care everyone!!!

Love to all, Chrissy

Hello ladies!

I just popped in to say hello. It's been crazy at work. They laid off 18 people ... my department went from 5 people to 3. My boss told us that she will be moving to Arizona in two months...bringing our department down to 2 people. So sad.

I had a fabulous experience on Saturday. I went to do some shopping, found quite a bit of cute clothes in the size I thought I was (before my vacation)...I went to try them on and they are big on me! I was so happy. Even my feet have shrunk. Is that possible? My weight has stayed the same but everything is so big on me now. I'm going to sign up for the gym this week and try Pilates. I heard that they do wonders for your muscles in a non impact way. I hope it's true! I'll let you ladies know!

Chrissy- First of all, Belated Happy Birthday!!! I hope you had a wonderful day! I'm so happy that that monster will rot in prison for what he did to your Rick. I think it will be good for you to talk to Rick...it all takes time. Remember we are here for you ...we've always been. God bless you and your family! {{{{{{Chrissy}}}}}}

Sharon- I hope you are having fun with your daughter and with CJ. You are a good sister in law to drive to Michigan for the sentencing. I wish I had family members like you that would be there for me in a heartbeat. You are truly a special person ... but we already knew that!

Sam- CONGRATULATIONS!!! A beautiful baby girl with a beautiful name...especially her middle name (Sylvia)

Judy- You and Cal are in my prayers

angel eyes- Congratulations on your lost inches! WOOOO HOOOO!

Kim- I hope your Nan gets better. Hang in there!

Well, I've got to run to bed. It's getting late and god knows I need all the beauty sleep I can get!


A big hello to all that I didn't mention individually. I may not post often but, I always think of all of you!

Before I go let me say this... It's a beautiful thing to have such a wonderful group of friends that come together in good times and in bad. People only dream about having friends like the ones we all have in this group ...for that, we are truly blessed. I thank you all for being such wonderful people.

Love-

Sylvia

Well, it's Bring Your Child To Work Day and we're overrun by pint-sized people in oversized lab coats touring the building and peering into microscopes, etc. Just hope I survive the day here! A couple of the guys I work for are taking me out to lunch for Secretary's Day today. They were telling my boss that they didn't take me out yesterday because HE was supposed to do it and now they're teasing him because he didn't do anything for me. I've got them trying to convince him that it'd be a good idea to give me tomorrow afternoon off in exchange. Let's just see what happens. I'm not holding my breath. Meanwhile, I'm trying to think of where I can go and what I can eat for lunch today without blowing it. I'll let you know how it goes.

Chrissy, I would have been surprised if you DIDN'T go and talk to Rick! Don't ever think that it's crazy to feel the way you do. Rick will always be alive in your heart and in your daughters' hearts. And thanks for your kind words about me and Rich. Well, let's face it. With a man named Richard, how can I lose, right?

Sylvia, congratulations on having to go out and buy new clothes LOL!! And yes it is possible for your feet to shrink too I think. I've never heard of Pilates though. What's that?

Well, I have to get on the phone and call those people who were supposed to get that big old dumpster out of our driveway yesterday. It's still sitting there looking ugly. *grumble* As you can tell, I'm not a patient person. I tried to call yesterday when I got home but they close at 5:00 apparently. I just don't want to get home tonight and find it still there and have to wait another day to call.

The weather's supposed to be nice for the next couple days (I hope I hope I hope ) so hopefully we'll get the garden tilled and planted, etc. I've got a list of "projects" a mile long. Poor Rich. Oh, but he did get on my scale yesterday and was surprised to see that he'd lost some weight since "I" joined WW. Go figure.

Hope you all have a good one!
Much love, Jo.

Hey Everyone. I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I just wish that today was Friday! It has been a long week for me. I found out that my brother and sis-in-law that I live with are moving away. So in the very near future. . . all depending on when this estate mess settles. . . I will have to find a new place to live. This is God's way of putting me on my own again. I had decided to stay with them just weeks ago.
Oh well. . . now begins the fun of apartment hunting again. Joy! It would help if I had any idea of when all of this is going to settle. It is great fun home shopping when you have no idea when you are moving.

Chrissy - It is so great to hear from you. I am happy for you all that this creep is finally put away forever. Now you can get on with your grief. I know you must miss Rick terribly. I cannot even imagine. Quitting smoking is an incredible thing. I am so proud of you. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts as you go through grieving now. ((((Chrissy))))

Sylvia - Glad you survived the layoffs. Sounds like there are a lot of changing going on around you. Congrats on the clothes shopping. That is a great feeling. What is Pilates? I don't think I am familiar with that.

Jo - I'll take you up on that challenge. I'd like to loose 6 lbs by Mem Day too. . . sounded like a good number.

Angel-Eyes - I know what you mean about knowing your body's weight cycle. I am learning the same. I don't mind checking my weight often because now I can usually tell what by body is up to and is about to be "down" to by that number.

Sam - Sounds like you are shedding those lbs already. You'll be a skinny mama before you know it!

OK. Better get back to work now. A big howdy to those I didn't mention by name.

Gina

Hi everyone!

TGIF! It's a beautiful, sunny spring day here in Pennsylvania, and I have the day off. Yay!

There's not much new to report from here. My trip to Virginia last weekend was very nice. We enjoyed the visit with our son. It's amazing how close and comfortable we all feel even though we don't get together often. We spent Saturday at Williamsburg. It was a really nice weekend.

I'm still counting points and have lost another lb. bringing the total to six. I'll join in Jo's Memorial Day Challenge. I hope to lose at least 8 more lbs. in the next month. Maybe we should start a special thread to post our progress on this challenge.

Has anyone else been watching Survivor? I was sorry to see Elizabeth go.

Gina, good luck with the apartment hunting.

Jo, have you gotten rid of your dumpster? Your possum story was so gross! AAGH! I don't even like coming across a dead mouse... It must have felt great being able to fit into those old pants. Keep up the good work!

Sylvia, I'm glad to hear you still have your job. It must have felt great to go shopping and need a smaller size. Tell us more about Pilates.

Chrissy, nice to hear from you. The ordeal of the trial is finally over. I'm glad to hear the guy got life in prison.

Angel-Eyes, I hope your business trip is going well. You are committed if you are bringing your w/o gear with you!

Sharon, Chrissy must have been so surprised when you showed up at her house. I'm glad the long ordeal is over for you too. I bet you and CJ had fun together.

Sam, you are losing that pregnancy weight fast. I bet you'll get to your goal weight in no time!

Sandi, how often do you brush your dog's teeth? I've never been to Las Vegas, but have heard a lot of people say they like it there.

Mary Kay, good to hear from you again.

Kim, sorry to hear your grandmother is not doing well. Maybe a few photos of you and your daughter would bring her some comfort.

Have a great weekend!

Trish

Default Just a quick hello

Hi

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted, to be honest I am kind of embaressed. It has been a hard month for me but, I am doing a little better.
I seem to be on an up swing. I am working like a nut and I did change my meds as I said I was going to have to. I'm not sure if I like it.... I am trying.

It is hard managing both my weight and my mental disorder. I am so sorry that I have disappeared again. I will try and post when I can.

Sharon, I got your email, thank you.

Well, I have lost 2lbs since I posted so that is good but, I haven't been eatting much. I am sure I am going to blow up like a balloon real soon.

Ok, time for bed. Sorry I didn't address everyone.

Hugs & Kisses

Kerri

Default How is everyone's weekend going?

Hi guys,
Sharon here, not Chrissy on her computer. I have been having a good visit and I have been spending a couple of days at my sis in law Chrissy's house.

Last night Chrissy and I went to a party given for her by her friends at the hospital where she works. They wanted to show their support for her and to let Chrissy know they are very glad of the verdict and sentencing. Lots of nurses, if we got sick I am sure we would have been taken care of LOL They had a bar-b-que and lots and lots of great food as they all brought a dish to pass. Don't even want to think about my weight with all the eating out and parties here. Than we went to see a movie afterwards-Town And Country with Goldie Hawn, Warren Beatty, Garry Shandling and Diane Keaton. Don't waste your money guys, it wasn't too good, full of spouses cheating on their wives/husbands and trying to cover up. It was a comedy and I really don't see anything funny about that. Chrissy and I both said afterwards that we kept hoping it would end soon. LOL

Today I am going to have lunch with CJ again. We are going to a really old established store called Hudson's for a Maurice salad that they have in their great restaraunt. I can't wait, it is a great salad with ham, turkey and cheese, but the best part is the Maurice dressing they have with it. I will have mine on the side naturally. LOL Well at LEAST I am having a salad guys. LOL Than tonight it will be my last night, so we will all go out to dinner. Chrissy, Emily, Ellen and my Dad too. Tomorrow I will leave Michigan and head back to Indiana and my family. I really miss them so much.

Brite-Hi, so glad you posted again. We missed you and I am glad you had that 2 lb weight loss. Good for you! Please don't be embarrased, we all have our up's and down's and keep on trying and we will be there for you in the meantime. You will do better and better everyday, we will all help each other.


Trish-So glad you had a great time with your son. Yes I agree with you that it is so good to be with your loved ones. We miss them so much and than when we are together it is as if time stands still. At least that was the way it was for me when we visited our daughter Tracy in Florida. Yes I watch Survivor faithfully and was dissapointed to see Elizabeth get voted off. I thought Keith should have went this time for all the times he set people off and messed up the rice or cooked too much. This is a chef? LOL I reallly want Tina to win thought, that Colby just wins EVERYTHING doesn't he. Every food challenge, and immunity one. Than he goes and wins a new Pontiac Aztec too. It is about time someone else gets something don't you think?

ginabob-Gosh so sorry that your brother and sister in law are moving away from you. I know how close you are with them. Good luck in finding a place to live. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Jello-Your boss DIDN"T take you out to lunch? Man what kind of a boss is he? Glad your other co workers are taking pity on you. You work much too hard to not get an occasional free lunch. Hope you are successfull in getting a day off with the boss. Give him the old guilt trip!

Sylvia-Good for you girl, with your clothes getting big on you. I know that is a great feeling so enjoy it and if you join that gym you will be throwing those old clothes away. Thanks for your kind words I think you are very special too. I have always thought that.

Chrissy-I have had such a great time with you this week. I always do when we are together. Glad we have been finally able to laugh and thanks for being there for me too. I am also thankfull that you have this computer so I can post to all our Thin Group friends. What would we do without them?

angel-Hope everything goes well for your business trip. That must be rough when your husband is away and you have to make all these arrangements for your kids and dog too. You have such a positive attitude with packing your workout gear, water and what you are going to eat and all that walking you will be doing. Good for you, you are sure to do well.

CJ-Hey girl, see you soon at lunch. We will have do some walking at the mall just in case we get into something we shouldn't. LOL No just kidding, I HOPE! See you soon!

Gail-Hey girlfriend, where have you been? Miss you! Is your MIL still there visiting? How is it going? Hopefully great. Post with us and let us know how everything is going for you. WE MISS YOU and I really feel that the thread is not the same without you girlfriend.

Sherry-Oh SHERRY, where oh where are you? Come on back and post with us if you are around. You are sure missed by all of us Sher-Bear. Hope all is going great for you. I have been reading your Mc Skinny posts and see that you are going to Florida in June. Good for you. I'll bet you can't wait either to go. Are you workiing on a tan or just going like I did, EXTRA WHITE? LOL Hope to talk to you soon.

Well guys better get off her and go upstairs and see what Chrissy is doing.

I love you guys and will talk to you when I get back in Indiana.

Love you's Sassy Sharon

Default Did you miss me?.....

HELLO, HELLO.....I'ts me!!! Well, it sure is good to be back. Listen up....all you Texas girls...sure have it good with all those good ol' cowboys...FOR SURE!!!

My trip was to a small rural town in Saskatchewan where its mostly farming. Cash crops,cattle and sheep farms. OOOOhhhhh, boy those cowboys sure look good in those Wrangler jeans and Stetson hats. We worked really hard and had meetings during the day but found some time to go into downtown to a local bar. I found myself dancing to a few good tunes and slow dancing to "a belt buckle polisher".....was very funny though....seems even the fast songs everyong does the "country two-step" Pretty funny watching a city girl doing the two-step-seems I wanted to do the leading..he he.
Well I DID have good intentions.....the hotel I thought we were staying at was actually a motel with no work out room and although I ate abit light with salads at most meal....I still managed to gain 3.5lbs. Geez, I thought my dancing was a workout!! Anyway I landed at the airport at 1 am and finally got home at 2:15am then straight to zzzzzzzzzzz....but by 2 pm, I was doing the elip. machine at the gym and did my 150 situps!!!!
Ha!!!not only am I BACK BUT I'M BACK ON TRACK
Haven't read all the posts yet....but I will. Take care

Check it out...

I am here again. I will try and say hello when I log on at the very minimum. I went shopping with my mom (the greatest) on Saturday. I found a couple of things but, I still hate to shop.

Anyhoo, just want to say hi

Jetall is a combination of my initials before I was married (JET) and part of my married last name (ALL). I needed a 'name' and that is that I came up with.

I am not sure what to tell you about myself. I tend to be quiet but when I get started sometimes I go on too long. I will try not to do that now.

Since I wrote the first time I started to walk twice a week with a friend (mind you it was only last week when we started - LOL.) With summer coming I will also be walking behind a lawnmower at least once a week.
(I find myself really tired after that one - yesterday I took a nap.) Right now my legs are feeling the extra that I have called on them to do but I know they will eventually feel better.

That is enough about me for now. Thank you again for allowing me to join you. I am looking forward to getting to know you better.

Glad to see you found us again Judy!

Welcome back Brite! Have missed you and glad to see you posting with us again. Don't worry about the time in between, as long as we hear from you!

Will be back later guys ... sorry, have to get ready and go! DIL and granddaughter in from Arizona!

Love you,
CJ

Default Glad to be back home again!

Hi all you Thinsters,
Got back Sunday afternoon and was soooo glad to be back home in Indiana. The trip from Michigan was not too bad for a 6 hour trip. It was good seeing my family, Ken and the boys again. Also happy to see my kittie cats and they were happy to see me as well. There sure is no place like home is there?

The bad news is that I went to my WW meeting yesterday and was up 5.6 lbs, for 2 weeks. Better than the 6 lbs I gained the last time I went for the trial. But I guess being on vacation on Florida than in Michigan the next week and again all the eating out we did takes it toll on a person. I had lunch with CJ on Saturday and we did have our Maurice salad and did really good and by passed the Mr. Fields Cookie stand though. That was hard, but as CJ was saying as we were passing "Keep on walking" I was thinking the same thing exactly as her. LOL So we did pretty good.

Now I am getting back on track and today had a grilled chicken salad for lunch at TGIF Fridays when I met my daugher, Kelly and niece Becky there. Also had a salad for dinner as well. Trying to drink my water and plan to get back to the gym maybe tomorrow and will really try hard this week to get some of that weight off. So at least I am in a good frame of mind and not saying "The heck with it" like I could do. Will just take things a day at a time and not try to lose it in one day. I will get there, now that the trial and sentencing and vacation is over, it will be easier to get into a routine once again. I will keep on trying, I may slip some, but I am still determined to get all the way down to my goal. No matter how long it takes. I won't give up on this. This group really is my salvation. I don't know what I would do without the wonderful support I get from all of you's.

jetall-Hi and welcome back to our great group. You are doing great and with the walking with your friend that will really help you to lose the weight. That walking must be really helping if you can feel it in your legs. Don't worry you will get used to it and they won't be so sore soon. I am glad you came back to post with us. We are looking forward to getting to know you much better.

CJ-Hey girlfriend, just wanted to let you know how much fun I had with you for both our lunches we had. I think we did really good program wise at least. If you keep on doing what you are doing soon you will be the proud recipient of that 10 lb ribbon. I know you can't wait!

Gail-Hi there, thanks so much for the email you sent. I just saw it today from a few days ago. I haven't been on the computer yet since back till now. I will answer your email soon. So glad your mother in law's visit went really well. I know you are glad however to have just you and Ken there. Things will be back to normal now and there will be just you, Ken and Little Big, your kitty once again.

Chrissy-It was so great seeing you again and I sure had fun staying with you as usual. We sure got some things done didn't we. Like starting cleaning Dad's basement (don't worry I will come back this summer and we can finish it up) and raking your leaves (wasn't that fun?) and your garage never looked better. I like doing projects with you and 4 hands are better than two don't you think? But we had fun too, like the party your nurse friends threw for you and going to the show, even through the movie sucked big time. LOL I know you are ready now for your vacation in Florida. Gosh you are going to be so busy, with Ellie graduating, that wedding and going to Disney World in May. Glad everything went well for that idiot sentencing and we finally got some justice for my brother and your dear husband Rick. I love you Chrissy.

Brite-Hi Kerri! Glad you had fun shopping and found some things you wanted. Glad you posted and keep on posting everytime you have a few minutes to spare. Hope you are doing good.

angel-Glad you are back and I know you are as well. Your trip to Canada sounds like it was a really good one. Don't worry about the gain. I too gained and the important thing is that we are both back on track. Good job getting back with your exercise too.

Sherry-Hey Sher Bear where are you???? Post and let us know. I miss you girlfriend! Oh Sheeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrry? Come back to us!

Well guys, time to get this posted and get ready for bed. It is nice to have some time off from work since H & R is done. I want to get somethings done around here while I am off this summer. We will see what I can get done. I am gonna enjoy being off for a while.

Take care guys and love you much, Sharon
