Morning, all. It is TOM for me now, so my scales are up, and my cramps are trying to kill me. I slacked off on the working out last week with being sick and that fun stuff, so it's time to get back in gear!
Morning all...TOM is here HARD I hate that dang thing, although I did get lucky and didn't gain any this month, maybe cuz its my first month since I started eating better and I'm still loosing instead of holding on to the TOM weight. Well I have to get to the bank (driving today, I will not walk ANYWHERE during the first few days of TOM) and gotta run to the store, BBL
Tabitha~Did you quit?
SW 2/14/05 - 251 *gasp*
1st GW - 199
2nd GW - 170 That is where I am comfortable (I like a little meat on the bones )
Been a busy morning. Went and paid my phone bill, applied for six jobs, and had lunch all before noon! Please send some positive thoughts my way. Of the six jobs, 4 I know I am qualified for, 1 I can learn, and 1 may not higher me because of my weight. That one is for a Sales Counselor with LA Weightloss. So, I'm not too sure about it. 20 minutes of walking in on top of all that. Now, I am going to clean my living room (it never ends) exercise, then we have to go get dd from pre-K and go to the grocery store. When I get home from the store, it will be more exercise time for me. I will be getting my butt in gear! I just don't feel like I did as much as I should have these past two weeks, and I seriously have to catch up to Michelle! Ready or not, here I come!

Hope everyone's weekend was nice. I guess the main thing I did was help hubby clean the garage....yuck!
I did manage to lose 2 lbs. over the weekend. Weekends are usually the pits for me but I just stuck to my diet and did it. Maybe all of that work in the garage helped.
Tabita-it sounds like you've had such a busy day so far!! You go girl!! Hope you get a job out of that--sounds like you might--six applications b4 noon!! Wow!!
Sorry to all of you who have the monthly visitor. No fun....but you'll get through it!
I guess it's off to treadmill. I'm up to 15-20 minutes at 2.8 mph a few times a day. I just put on some tunes and start walking. Love it. This month I've been losing 3 pounds a week, last month it was 2. It looks like I'll make my goal of 220 by Easter.
I haven't posted a lot, but have always been a lurker (ohh, that sounds creepy) and I want to thank all of you who have always given me the courage to go on.
Well, that's it for now. Hopefully, bbl. Have a good day, e1!! Lisa
