Default YES!!.....finally....

Hi Ladies, good morning!!Last night sitter or no sitter I was bound to make it to the gym. ...and what an excellent wo I had. I did 55 min of cardio and 200 situps and ....I've lost another 1.5 lbs BUT THATS NOT ALL!!!
I measure myself once a month and after last months yo-yo of the same 2-3 lbs, I thought for sure there would be a 0" lost. I couldn't believe it!!! I had lost another 5" SOOOOOO, the moral of this story is.....
don't give up with the scale, there are other ways of losing and measuring your success!! Even trying to stay on plan, refusing a second helping, walking past that box of donuts, throwing out the leftover Easter candy....WHATEVER?.....YOU CAN BE A SUCCESS!!!
Boy, can you tell I'm PUMPED?? well, with good reason...now I'm within 4lbs of breaking the 200 and going into the 100's. Heres to the next hundred, CHEERS!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY, AND GET READY FOR THE WEEKEND....TGIF.

ps....rats! missed my weekly update ,sorry.....

Happy Friday to all! Been a long week but today the sun is shining and it's Friday Friday Friday!!! Only have to get through the boss's first day back in the office and the company luncheon today. Yikes! Maybe I'll just go hide somewhere until the smell of food is gone. Hoping for decent weather this weekend for more backyard work but have plenty to do inside if those thunderstorms come through.

Sam, congratulations on the birth of your little one!!!! Seems like just yesterday you were announcing to us that you were expecting. OK, so maybe it seems longer to you LOL! Love the name Charlotte!!!

CJ, truthfully, I'm not even exactly sure what my weight is at this moment!! I'll be sure to send you an update after I weigh in tomorrow morning. I'm NOT looking forward to it.

A gal at work here is leaving tonight for a week in Las Vegas. I'm so jealous! She won't even sneak me into one of her suitcases! How do you like that? Humph! And at the end of next month, my old buddy Gary is going to England!! And he won't take me with him either. Well, now I know who my friends are! LOL!

I guess I should get to work here but it's tough when it's sunny and going up to 70-something outside my window. Hm, maybe I could dig out my sneakers (think there's an extra pair in my car) and go for a walk while everyone else is stuffing their faces at the luncheon! Could happen!

Hope you all have a great day! I decided to put an autosignature in my user profile so let's just see if it works when I post this.

Much love to you all!
Jo.

Hi!

Just stopping for a quick post. My husband and I are going to Virginia for the weekend to visit my son. We are going to spend Saturday at Williamsburg.

I'm happy to say I've lost another two lbs. so I'm down a total of 5 in the last two weeks.

Chrissy, hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Judy, I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles. I'll remember you and Cal in my prayers.

Sam, congratulations on the birth of baby Charlotte!

Jo, glad you are feeling better. Another 2.2 lbs! Great!

Kim, sorry to hear about your grandmother and your fibromyalgia.

Sharon, have a great trip to Florida. Enjoy your visit with your daughter.

CJ, good job, another lb. lost!

Angel-eyes, you are doing so well. I'm sure you'll be below 200 soon. Keep up the good work!

Well, I have to get going. We have a six hour drive ahead of us. Take care!

Trish

Default Good Morning

Hi everyone,
Today it looks like a very nice day here. May even hit the 80 mark. If it doesn't rain it will be perfect. Going to our grandsons soccer game this a.m. The little ones are so cute to watch.All is well in my part of the world. Have no complaints. I have been working some extra hours again and that really makes my week get messed up. But vacation time will be nearing and the money will help. we plan to spend a few days in Vegas (outlying areas) looking at property as we think we may retire there in about 3 years. So we want to look over the areas. Have gotten lots of info from real eatates there. Homes are very nice and so much cheaper than here. But of course I will find time to go to the casinos too while I am there. Maybe I will be lucky again on the Wheel of Fortune machine?

Angel-Eyes....Keep up the great job. I don't think I could ever do 200 sit ups. In a row anyway. LOL Whatever you are doing keep it up as it seems to be working.

Jo...I Like your new signature.

C.J....A pound gone. Good for you girl!!!
Sam...happy to hear all is well with you and the new baby. Like her name too.

Trish...Hope you had a nice trip to Va. It is always nice to see our kids isn't it? You are doing so well in losing weight. I am proud of you.

Kim...Sorry to hear about all the things going on with you, your Gram and Hannah. keep us posted.

Sharon...Have a fun time in Fla. and a nice visit with your daughter.

Love to all....Sandi

Default Greetings From Fort Walton Beach, Florida!

Hi there guys,
We are at my daughter Tracy's house in Fort Walton Beach. Took about 12 hours or so to drive here. Yesterday Tracy showed us around and we went to the beach and saw the Gulf Of Mexico. Never saw the the Gulf before. I never saw such white sand was so and the Gulf was so green and beautiful. She also took us to here Air Force base, Eglin AFB and saw where she worked and met everyone she worked with. Her superior officers said that we have raised a fine young lady and they all said how much they liked her around and how funny she is and how much she makes them laugh. That's my daughter, just like her Mom everyone says. She is really always happy and easy going and fun loving. That is so nice to hear such great things about your kid. Both my daughters Kelly and Tracy are pretty fun loving I think. My son's have a good sense of humor as well. Yes you can say there we like to have a good time and that is the important thing is just to enjoy life while you are here. I am proud of all my kid!

Sam-Congratulations Mom! That is so neat that you are the parents to a beautiful-I just know it-baby girl. I also love that name Charlotte. You are going to love being a Mum I know. Thanks so much for letting us know and keep us up on how she is doing.

Judy-So sorry about all you have been going through with Cal and also you hurting your back. Hang in there Judy and please keep on posting with us too and we will keep both of you in our prayers.
{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{JUDY}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Sandi-That is great that your weather today is going to be so nice. You are having almost the same weather as here in Florida. It is soppose to be in the mid 80's here. That weather will be perfect to enjoy your son's soccer game. Have a good time!

Trish-Hope your trip to Virginia to visit your son is a good one. I also hope the weather is perfect for you for your trip. You are doing so great on your program. Gosh down another 2 lbs-5 in all. Keep it up!

CJ-I see you started the new thread again you little BRAT! Miss you too and we will connect soon. Hope you are doing well.

Chrissy-Hey girl. Is Ellie back yet from Florida? Funny she comes back on the very same day her Aunt Sharon goes to Florida. LOL Hope you celebrated your birthday all over again with your little Ellie Bellie.

Jello-You don't have to hide during your company luncheon. All you have to do is just work out the extra's doing your yard work you are planning to do. LOL

angel-Wow Whee girl. You are losing both pounds (1.5) and inches (5) too. All those sit ups and other exercise you are doing is paying off big time. YOU GO GIRL!

Hi to everyone else too. Hey Sher-Bear where are you lately? I miss you lots and lots. Also Gail I know you probally are still busy with your MIL. Post soon too cause I miss you too.

Time to go guys. Another busy day planned today. Last night we went to this all you can eat seafood buffet. The crab legs were so good. I gotta get out of here and back home agan to get back on my program and exercise program too. Today we are going to the beach and I will to walk to burn some of those crab legs off. LOL

Love you guys. Sassy Sharon

Thanks for all the love, support, and hugs I'm getting. It makes me feel better to know y'all are only a few clicks of a mouse away!!!

I talked to one of the nurses at the nursing home my grandma is in, and she did not give me much hope. Since Nan (my nickname for my grandma) doesn't have a phone, I can only talk to the nurse and pass on messages. She said Nan has given up. Won't eat but a bite or two, won't attempt to do anything with her left hand (the stroke affected her right side) except maybe scratch her nose or something like that. She also refuses to get out of bed (the risk of pneumonia increases from that), and doesn't want to do Physical Therapy. The PT goal is to get her doing things by herself to get her home, which is where she's wanting to be. Even if my Mom would move out there, She and Ray (my step-grandpa) wouldn't be able to take care of her without some kind of in home care, and Nan worries about the cost, etc. She doesn't want to be a burden. I've tried telling her it's not a burden to us, but a way to repay her back for all the care, love, support she has shown us all out lifes.

Mom and I talked about splitting the cost of getting a phone installed in her room, and splitting the monthly bill, but I can see the fit my grandma would throw. I wish there was a way to get out there, but we just don't have the money for me to make another trip out there.

All she would say to me the last time I talked to her while she was still in the hosp. is how she wants to die. I know she misses my real grandpa, and has been talking about him more the last few years, but I wish she could try. I just don't know what to do anymore. My grandma has never been a quitter before. I hate to think of her quitting know. But I'm not in her shoes. I don't know how much pain she's in everyday, or how miserable she is. I was hoping when I saw her last month that taking Hannah with me would help, but unfortunatly Hannah came down with the flu while we were in Kansas, and Nan didn't get to spend much time with her.

Well, now that I have totally depressed everyone, and got Niagra Falls going on my end again, anyone have any ideas??

I pray daily for her, and get frustrated once in awhile when it seems like God has forgotten about her (I know he hasn't). I want Him to hurry up and do something and I know that's not the way I should be. I will just have to keep praying, and keep my faith that it is His will.

Going to go and try to get some sleep. The church had a skating party tonight, and I'm kinda feeling it (it was worth it to see the fun Hannah had tonight).

Hello everyone. I don't seem to get here much. I think about all of you. My son has to go to jury duty this week. My daughter has moved back home again. My dad had hernia surgery last Thurs. He is doing okay. My mom will probably be going in the hos. in the next week or so. She has fluid building up again and also has asore on her leg that can't heal because of the swelling. I guess this will be the way she will live until they figure it out. My husband had his blood pressure med up, but they don't hear the heart murmer so they think it might be working. But compared to some of you this is just easy stuff. I'll not complain. I still need to get busy losing this weight.

Dreamer: What a pretty name. Hope the breast feeding is coming around. I didn't do it, but have heard that it takes some practice. Keep trying.

Kim: Does your (Nan) have a picture of Hannah? Maybe if she could look at her she might decide to try a little harder. It is so hard to deal with things like this, but your doing everything you can. Your Nan knows this. Take care of yourself too.

Chrissy:Hope you had a wonderful Birthday!

Judy: Sorry to hear the med didn't work for Cal. I don't like driving my husband around either. It dosen't happen to often, but he is for ever telling what I am doing wrong.

Well. I am tried and I have to get the dishes done. Will talk later. Mary Kay

Default Hi Ladies....

Sam, congratulations on your baby girl!! I just love the name you picked..Charlotte. Beautiful, hope you are doing well and just ENJOY this time together with your new baby daughter....take a deep breath of her babyscent for me......just love the baby smell!!!

KimV....wow, are you having a tough time. Be strong, and make sure you take some time for yourself. Sounds like a very stressfull time, and if not careful next thing you know....you'll be run down and getting sick. Please take care of yourself.

Well yesterday was another 'breakthrough' day!! You know those ones where the lightbulb goes off....and you say..."Wow". Well I was working out at the gym and really trying to push myself, did 35 min of cardio at a higher rpm than normal and then my 200 situps....well my mind started to wander abit and hit the daydream mode. And finally it hit me...I'm ready for the next level!!
Level? you say....yes, dh and I are ready to look at a home gym, treadmill or other excercise equipment. Ha ha, I bet you thought we were ready to start a family.....haha..nope, but IN MY MIND.....I COULD SEE MYSELF WORKING OUT MORE!!! Now that just blew me away as...usually my mind wanders looking at the guys in the gym and their cute butts....lol but here I was and it was just so crystal clear and the answer so easy and within reach. IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME!!!!
LOL....so yesterday we almost bought one, but they don't stock them in and would have to order one....we had wanted to take it home RIGHT THEN AND THERE.
well.....soon, going to check around. This would be one of my success's for the weekend....another would be only eating a smaller portion of my dinner at a pub, planning ahead with water, snacks...for a 3 hr drive and also saying "I'm worth it" to buying some more clothes that absolutely look great ...(size L and XL) I just can't seem to get enough of the smaller sizes!!!!!
Have a great day Ladies....the day is fresh with all sorts of possibilites. We can change our outlook and our habits....success is just a meal away!!!!

OK, so I weighed in on Saturday and faced the music. Gain of 1.6 lbs. Now I can blame some of it on that time of the month (cramps had me doubled over yesterday!) but the rest is most assuredly chocolate and marshmallow related. Oh well. It's a new week, right? But I was feeling really down and it didn't help to have to attend a memorial service on Saturday afternoon. It was a very nice service and we all had a good cry but celebrated the life of the man. Anyway, when it was over I was going to go home and a girl I hardly knew came over and asked me how much weight I'd lost and told me how good I looked, etc. Um, wow. Just what I needed to perk up a bit.

This morning I had to drop Watson off at the vet. He's having his teeth cleaned and I had to sign the usual release forms for anesthesia. It always worries me, especially since Watson's had a heart murmur since he was a puppy and he's almost 12 years old. Anyway, I put him in the big cage at the vet and closed the door and made the mistake of looking at his big puppy eyes asking what did I think I was doing, etc. Sniffle. I can't pick him up until tomorrow but will call this afternoon to see how it went. I miss my puppy!!!!!

Speaking of tomorrow, our dumpster will be delivered in the morning. I took the whole day off and Rich should be home by 12:30 or so. All that JUNK is going out. I'm tossing anything I can lift and that will fit in the dumpster. He's not saying much but I think he's a bit nervous. Yesterday, we were finishing breaking up the old shed and pulling up the old rotten floor boards and Rich lifted up the floor and there was a huge dead possum underneath. I just saw a lot of fur and big beady eyes and started screaming. But I calmed down after the initial shock and we had to dispose of the body. I'll skip most of the gorey details but ... well, can you say maggots. Yuck.

Sorry to bring up that subject guys. Don't know why I felt like I had to tell you that. Let's just say it's quite the appetite suppressant. Poor little thing must have gotten stuck or something.

Never mind. Enough of that. Guess I'll leave you now and get back to work. It's another beautiful day outside and it was tough to finally come in to work. Hm, maybe it's a good day for a lunch time walk??

I'll leave you on that more positive note. Hope you all have a great day.

Much love, Jo.

Hey Everybody. Just popping in to say hello! It's been really busy here and I haven't had time to do much on the web. I actually gained a lb this last week. Just getting me motivated to do better this week. Trying not to feel down. . .

Sam - Congrats on your new arrival. I can't wait to see some pictures!

Sorry I don't really have time to address anyone. I hope to check in later.

Gina

Default Baby = 26 pounds?

Hi everyone

Quick message as bub is in between feeds and I have to go and get something to eat before I collapse (I've never worked this hard LOL).

I weighed myself today - 1 week before I delivered I was 176 pounds, today I'm 150. 26 pounds and bub is only 9 days old? Hey I'll take it!

Of course the downside is I have lost most of my muscle no doubt, but we'll work on that.

Anyways love to all. By next week I should be back here more often, just only sleeping two hours at a go is pretty darn tiring (whinge whinge I know).

CJ - If I email you some photos can you put them on our site? That'd be great if you could....

Sam
176/150/132 (goal may change later)

Hi Everyone,
Not a whole lot new in my area of life. It seems the same old stuff just a different day lately. We had such nice weather over the weekend, even was able to wear shorts. And now it is back in the 50's. Although I do like this weather for walking outside which I did earlier today.

Jo...Your possum story was a little bit gross. I hate them things dead or alive!!!!!! Do you brush Watson's teeth at all? The dog we got last year has always had her teeth brushed by her former owner,so my hubby just continued in. I must admit she doesn't have doggie breath. They have chicken flavored toothpaste and believe it or not, Shadow runs to him when she sees it coming. Hey, when you are all done with the cleaning and getting rid of stuff you can come here and do it for me.

Angel-eyes....Gee, if you get a hime gym you will only have your hubby's butt to look at. LOL What speed do you do your cardio at? What machine do you use for it?

M.K....You sure have your fill of things happening in your life. I do hope things get better for you soon.

Sam...Those sleeplesss nights will end in a few months or so. You have to try to nap whenever Charlotte does if you can. I know that isn't always possible. You are doing well having lost that much weight already. It will come off,don't worry. Bet you kind of miss playing all your sports now huh? I can't wait to see some photos.

Chrissy.......You are in my thoughts today as that jerk gets sentenced. Hopefully this will be your last time to have to ever see him and be in court.{{{{{{{CHRISSY}}}}}

Judy....I am sorry to hear that Cal's meds are not working for him. It is not an easy disease to deal with. If my hubby was to read your post about Cal talking to you about the way you drive, he would say that's what I sound like. LOL

So off I go to do some ironing. It sems to be piling up for some reason. Take care. Love to all. Sandi

Default Hi Ladies.....

Sam....way to go...already showing a good wt loss!! Lucky you....when I had my second baby I lost only 12lbs and he weighed 7.6oz....I thought I was doing good!!!

Chrissy....today is the day!!! Good luck and hope the book gets thrown at that scub bag!!!

Well, after a little detour of a couple of pounds ....I am back down to 202 lbs. It is only natural for your body to show some signs of resistance, I think. Even when we'll be a goal weight our bodies will have a natural fluctuation of 2-4 lbs. I am LEARNING, (and constantly amazed) that I'm not freaking out anymore when I do have a slight gain. So this, believe it or not is my latest success .....getting to know my bodies natural rhythm when weight loss is concerned! I know that I will succeed and beat this, once and for all.
