Good morning ladies!

Hope all is well with everyone ... hmmm ... no one started the new weekly thread - where are you all? OK ... I started the new thread and went back to the longer threads since there are so few of us posting anymore. So I guess we'll start a new one when we reach 30 posts or so.

The last couple weeks has been bad for me with my back being out. I was barely getting around but thank heavens it is slowly starting to heal now.

I see we have somone new (hopefully) ... Rachael just posted in the biographys so Welcome Rachael and hope to see you posting with us here.

Hope to hear from the rest of you gals SOON!

Love, CJ

I can't believe that I haven't posted this week. I was sure that I had posted at the beginning of the week, but, alas I have not.

CJ - Hope you back is on the mend. I hate that throwing the back out. I sit most of the day, so it is excruciating when I do. I also broke my back when I was a teen, so that does not help the situation. The dr. told me the last time that I threw it out that I need to be way more careful because the arthritis that is setting in will put me in a wheel chair if I do it any more. Sooooo, I have just tried to be better at not taking on jobs that I know will cause the problem.

Me - Found out last week that DM has a recurrence of breast cancer. We have been to numerous appointments with her this week and just waiting for the results.

This has been a quiet day at work. Reading break for the students, so we are having some quiet times here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Must run and give the dr. a call.

Hi everyone .. we have a new member with us .. Rachael - Welcome! Glad to have you posting with us ... I hope you don't mind but I copied your message you posted into the thread here so it wouldn't get "lost" ...

Rachael's post:

Quote:
I am starting fresh today. I new plan, which is probably a old plan for some, is to decide what I am going to eat each day the night before. I am also using fitday.com to organize my food and keep track of my eating. I am only going to weigh myself on friday morning otherwise the scale will remain in the linen closet. I hope that I can do it this time. I just found out that a friend of mine's husband had a massive heart attack at 36 years! This time the diet is to be healthy and, hopefully, I will lose weight in the process. Do any of you have any tips on how to not eat when you not hungry? Have a great weekend.

Rachael
Sounds like you are off to a good start ... that is a good idea to plan your food the nite before .. Good luck to you - I'm sure you can do it! Hmmm .. sometimes it's hard to not eat when you aren't really hungry .. I usually pick up my knitting - can't eat when you are knitting! Sometimes when I get the urge to snack I will have something hot to drink with splenda .. seems to fill the need. I'm sure the gals will have some great tips for you also ... I'm trying myself to get back faithfully on my lo-carbing .. once you go off it's really hard to get back on. I know Peggy will have some good tips - she's our "inspiration" lately. Anyway, glad you found your way to us and keep on posting so we can get to know you better.

Peggy:
Sorry to hear about your mother ... I will keep you and her in my thoughts and prayers ... let us know how the tests come out. As for my back - it is starting to get better, very slowly - I am taking it very very easy tho ..

Slyvia:
Hope you are having a nice time in Mexico - hope you father is doing well still also. Miss you!

Sharon:
I know you are very very busy but hope you can stop and take a breather and give us another yell soon! Miss you too!

OK ... cannot sit any longer ... talk to ya all soon.

Love, CJ

Hello Ladies!

Yes, I'm back and popping in for a quick hello. My Dad is doing very well. He was discharged from the hospital and is resting at home (still in Mexico). Let me tell you ladies, that was a real eye opener for me. I am more determined to lose this weight. I did lose 5 pounds a lot of it was due to an intestinal virus. Let me tell you, that wasn't fun but, I'll take a five pound loss any way I can get it.

I'm post more tomorrow. I'm off to bed.

Lots of hugs-
Sylvia

Default Hi guys!

Hi there,
Just want to take minute to post before I leave for my trip administering tests for more schools for my job. I am off to Lawrenceburg, Indiana this time. It is on the Ohio river and they do have a gambling boat there and maybe I will bring some quarters and play some slots while I am there. There are 4 other ladies with me and this one older lady goes all the time and spends her whole social security check there each month. Me I sure wouldn't want to spend the whole thing and not get anything for it. I think I would rather spend some of it on something I can keep forever. HA HA

Anyways,

CJ-I like the idea of going back to the numbered threads. I think when we do the weeks than they get pretty short and we than have to go back to the previous ones to reply to anyways. These will be longer and much easier I feel. Good call girlfriend. Glad you back is coming along, even if it is slowly and hope soon that it will be as good as new.

Sylvia-Glad you are back and hope you had a great time and had a margarita for me or two or three even. HA HA Glad your Dad is out of the hospital and will have a speedy recovery. Glad of your 5 lb weight loss, but sorry about the way you had to get it. But hey like you said a loss is a loss.

Peggy-Sorry about your mother and hope all goes well with everything and I too hope and pray that all goes well with her. Post and let us know when you hear anything.

Rachael-Glad you posted with us and hope that you will be a regular with our great group. We are happy to have you with us. The once a week weigh in is what I do and that is a good thing to do, otherwise if you weigh yourself daily you may get too discouraged. As far as not eating when you are not hungry, it might just be boredom, so just keep yourself busy and exercise or tackle a project you have been meaning to get to such as cleaning out a closet or some other project.

Well guys, I am off for my worktrip. I will be home by this weekend and than I have one more trip next week to Bloomington and than we are all done and than I will just have H & R Block and we are slowing down so it won't be as bad.

Take care guys, Love you, Sassy Sharon

Evening everyone ... just a quickie before going to bed. My back is still healing but each day it gets better and better. It's been a long and busy day today so hitting bed early (early for me anyway).

Slyvia:
Glad to see you are back and your dad is doing well .. sorry about your flu but good to hear you lost 5lbs!

Sharon:
Great to hear from you! Hope your trip this week is a good one and hope you have good luck on the gambling boat - sounds great to me! (but then you know how I love to gamble)!

Peggy:
How is your mother doing? Let us know when you hear from the test results. Keeping you and your mom in my thoughts.

Well, hope to hear from you guys soon ... we need some more chit chat going in this thread!

Later ...
Love, CJ

Hey there,
It is me again, can you believe this? I got back yesterday afternoon from Lawrenceburg and had a great time there at the riverboat when we got done with our school I ended up winning about $275 so that wasn't bad was it? I usually just play the quarter slots, but this time decided to plunk $20 in a dollar slot machine and by the 9th pull I won so that was good I thought. Of course after I won I quit playing and just walked around and watched and waited for the other 4 ladies that I work with to get done so we could go out to dinner. HA HA

CJ-Yes I was thinking of you when I saw those video poker machines and thinking about all the times we went to the casino's when Ken and I were visiting you and wishing you were here with me so we could go to dinner together and celebrate our winnings as you usually do win and win pretty big I might add. One lady, Rosie I went with played the $1 Wheel Of Fortune game and the top light lit up and it was call attendant and when she did the attendant said she had won $1500 so she was soooo happy with that.

OK I added my chit chat to this group so someone else post away and give us more chit chat. HA HA

Take care everyone, Love you, Sharon

Hi everyone! I am trying to get the hang of this thread thing. This the first time I found the whole thread. I use to think I was fairly computer savvy. Oh well. I started the Oprah Boot Camp two days ago. You can't eat three hours before bed. I am starving...ugh. I am looking forward to my Saturday morning run. I ran a 26.2 mile race this past December and my running partner and I continue to run every Saturday morning. We usually run about 5 miles and I love our conversations.

Has anyone read any books by Jennifer Weiner? She has written Good in Bed, In Her Shoes, and Little Earthquakes. I am reading Little Earthquakes at this time and it is really good. The other two were great as well. Just thought I would mention in case there are any readers in the group.

It appears that some of you enjoy gambling. My in-laws have become slot machine junkies. They just love to go. My mother-in-law is fairly lucky and wins alot! I have never had much luck although I must admit I've only gone once. My husband and I went to Atlantic City and only gambled $20. Whoa am I a risk taker or what?!!!

Anyway, I will try to check the Thin Group everyday now that I think I have figured out how to get in. Have a nice night and a great weekend.

Good morning girls! Sorry I haven't posted sooner but we have been so busy finishing up the walls in our cabin great room. We're putting up naughty pine and finishing up the loft also. This place is a mess! Sawdust everywhere! Hopefully tomorrow we will get our new cabinets in and be able to finally "clean up:!!! Then ... the carpeting goes in - hurray! But that might have to wait until April as we are going downstate next week and will probably be there for a month .. we need to finish getting the rest of the stuff out of the house so we can clean, paint, and put on the market to sell.

We still have tons of snow here and for the last 2 days have been having a March snow storm ... 8 inches already and still more to come thru out the day and night today. It's beautiful but ... am sick of it now and ready for Spring weather!

Sharon:
Congrats on your winnings! Glad you were smart and walked away with it - not like me, I like to keep playing! Sometimes I win more (as you witnessed) but sometimes I end up putting it all back too! Yes, that would have been fun to have dinner together with our winnings! Maybe soon ... ????

Rachael:
Good luck on your running .. nice to have a friend to do it with isn't it? Reading is good, especially to take your mind of of "eating" ... on your Oprah diet, if you can't eat 3 hrs before bed, can you have tea or something to drink?

Slyvia:
Hey girll - where are you???? Get in here, we miss you!

Peggy:
You too! How is your mother doing? Have you got all the test back? Let us know how things are going.

Well ... that's my chit chat for today. I'll check back later to see if anyone has "popped" in to post.

Talk to ya all later...
Love, CJ

Just dropping in quickly to say Hi to everyone and a big welcome to the newcomers. Also, to let you know what has been happening in my chaotic life.

A week ago, we received a phone call to let us know that our nephew had passed away in Ontario. He has always been a special nephew for us since he was the ring bearer at our wedding, so this was a big shock. We knew that he had been ill, but the last report was that he had been released from hospital and was getting better - to the point of going back to work.

As I was contemplating the news, I was thinking that the piece of news was the second bad piece of news in less than a week and began to wonder what the third would be - bad things come in threes. AND, the phone rang with a call telling us that DH's aunt had also passed away in Calgary the same morning.

As we were making plans as to who would go where, we decided that DH would go to Toronto for the nephew's funeral and I would take his parents to the funeral closer to home. That way, I would have more control over my transportation if I needed to get back home to deal with my mother. As it turned out, DH's twin and his BIL (one that was married to DH's sister) all met there and spent the few days together - without the wives.

So, off to the Calgary funeral I went. Babysat the in-laws for the day and a half and then back home. On arriving back home, I got a message that DM had a doctor appointment on the Saturday to which she needed to be taken because the surgeon that she went to would not tell her anything about her condition and that she needed to check back with her own family physician. That was my Saturday - her dr. told me to book a memore test for her because he is thinking that she is in the first stages of Alzheimers, also. When I went to book the memory test, they told me to call back on Monday because their computers were down and they could not schedule it that day.

Monday came...I had been away a couple days the previous week, so had tons of work to catching up to do, plus a couple of meetings scheduled for the morning. I rushed back to my office in the morning to a phone call from DM's sugeon wondering why she did not go to her pre-admission clinic at the hospital that morning. I called the hospital and they said they had talked to her and she said that she has an appointment written down on a piece of paper, but the appointment was definitely not at the hospital. They said that they were running late, so I could bring her in right then since they would have trouble rescheduling the appointment. Off, I ran, picked her up and dashed to the hospital.

The entire time we were there, she kept saying that she had just gone to see her dr. that morning and was just home when I called her. I reminded her that I had taken her 2 days previously, but she was adamant that she had just been there. At the preadmission clinic, I found out that she has surgery booked for Monday morning - but she claims her surgeon didn't tell her anything. OMG!

When I got back to work, I called her dr. and asked if she had been there that morning. They said, that she had indeed been there...sooooo, she was right. Anyway, I asked them about the memory test and they told me that she had been there that morning for the memory test - it wasn't actually booked until the afternoon, but she had arrived in the morning so they gave it to her. Just then, I figured out that she had gone to her own dr. in the morning instead of the hospital. Anyway, we straightened that all up and I told them that she was having her surgery on Monday...she didn't remember that, so they did not have the info in her file.

Anyway, I got through yesterday (without time to eat) and dropped into bed last night. DH arrived home this morning, so hopefully, it will bring some balance to all the stuff that is going on here. We are going to the opera tonight, though. He's thrilled since he has been up since 3 am this morning...

Sorry to dump today, I should be more positive here, not just having a pity party. Oh well, tomorrow will be another day and things can't get much worse.

Hope everyone has a great day...and above all, stay OP.

Take care,

Hi everyone! Just popping in for a quick hello before hitting the bed! Just got out of the hot tub .. boy did I need that. We have been breaking out backs trying to get the living room/dining room done by the weekend. Almost made it. Got the paneling all done, new shelves put up and the new cabinets in ... have to put in the countertop tomorrow and hopefully the carpeting. Then I have to figure out where I want to put everything!

Peggy:
Oh my you have had a really rough week! So very sorry. Sorry to hear of your nephew's and Aunt's passing. So is it this coming Monday your mom is having surgery? I wish you both well .. will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. And, how was the Opera? Sounds like fun.

OK .. where is the rest of you? Post soon! That's an order!

Night Night ...
Love, CJ

Hi! It has been almost two years since I have posted. I hope that you remember me. I remember when this was such a busy place to be; it looks like it has become really quiet. I'm glad to see that CJ, Sylvia, Peggy, and Sharon still come back to check in now and then, and I see that there are some new faces too. I'm trying to get myself motivated to lose some weight and get in shape. Maybe I can get some inspiration from some of my old friends here.

Trish

Hi, this is Lynnie. I am so excited to have found 3FC and now you all. It was all by accident in the first place. I was looking up something on google and it had nothing to do with weight lose but I needed this place!!!! I need the support that this place provides. I have struggled with an eating disorder all my life and am in therapy even for it. But there is nothing like people who know where you have been and are. I am a recovering bulimic. I am trying to lose weight and not fall into old patterns. This is a first for me. So my struggles might seem a little different but basically they all revalve around food too.
I recently joined the YMCA and have been working out there 4-5 days a week. I have a trainer setting up a program for me so I dont go overboard and hurt myself but yet I challenge myself too. My kids get to go and play games in the rec room while I work out if they are not in school. Its a good set up.
My hardest time of day is 3-6 in the evening for snacking time. When the kids get home from school and want snacks, while I make supper(and snack) and then I have to eat it(supper) after I just snacked and snacked. Ugh!!

Well, I look forward to getting to know you all. I will write more later. Thanks for the warm welcome!
Lynnie
