Hi ladies,

Tina, My goodness, Iím glad to hear that the kid at the school was caught. How scary to think of what could have happened. A new exercise machine sounds like fun. Size 14, woohoo! I donít think Iíve worn a 14 for at least 15 Ė 16 years. How fantastic that youíre wearing that size now. Youíre doing so well! What kind of birthday party do you have planned for Alyssa?

Hi Louie, the fair was great fun. I rode a few rides with my kids. Things I was afraid I wouldnít fit in last year. That part was great fun. I ate a few things I normally wouldnít have, but I enjoyed it, and in the long run, it didnít hurt anything.

Stacy, What do you think of the new job? You know when you forced yourself to go to the gym even when you werenít motivated and didnít want to? Thatís your commitment to weight loss, doing it when you donít feel like it. You deserve a couple of carrots for that! Iím with you on the calorie count thing. I lose best when I keep mine around 1650, but Iíve been around 1800 (or more) most every day lately (and the scales not movingÖ.hummmm).

Cheryl, Good that the laptop is working now. I am so glad that Aunt Flo doesnít visit me anymore (well she comes every six months, sometimes, if the pills that I take work that time ). The recipes look great. Thanks for posting those.

Hi Kreen, Good to see you here. As I said, Aunt Flo doesnít visit me anymore, but Iím glad to see that your weight loss and exercise has had a positive effect on your cramps, etc.

Emily, if you can run for 23 minutes, in my book you are already a runner! Hope your little one had a great birthday. I love BK, Iím glad I didnít have to go. I probably wouldnít have made good choices there. I loved the photos of you and your family. Thanks for sharing the link.

Robbin, I bet the scales will be back down as soon as TOM is over. Two little pieces of pizzaís not a big deal. I could eat that in my sleep Iím glad to hear Mark wouldnít require surgery.

The scales have been stuck here at my house. I'm trying to cut my calories a bit, they've run a bit high lately. I woke up with back ache this morning and only exercised for 20 minutes this morning. I hope I feel up to more tomorrow morning. DH gave me a back rub with Icy Hot to try to get that muscle to relax but it didn't help much.

Hey Ladies how is everyone this morning? I am great, I guess I really was holding lots of water weight cause this morning the scales were at 221. YAY!!! I am gonna take it and move my ticker.

Cheryl Ė Glad to hear your stress level is getting better. The recipes sound great and give me new ideas for my dinners. Canít wait to try them.

Tammy Ė Send your hubby my way I could really use a good back rub LOL my husband tries but he isnít very good at it. Sorry to hear the scales are stuck but one good thing is that they havenít gone up any.

Well Ladies I gotta get to my fitday before it is time to clock in. Check back later.

Good foggy morning, at least here in TN anyway. My goodness, it is SO hard for me to get going with these cool, foggy, dark mornings. I wake up fine, then take dd to school, see all the fog and just want to crawl back in my bed. I am up and moving but going very slow today. I keep hearing this voice in the back of my head whispering "the gym"...so i guess i will get ready to go in a few minutes. I just feel lazy today but the best way to get rid of that lazy is to get up off my butt.

Robbin- 221 WOOHOO. .

Jtammy- I am liking the new job. I am doing medical transcription for a local gastroenterologist, which makes me happy. I love the medical field. What is with the both of us and our calories lately. I just cant seem to get it under 1400, i would have liked at least 2 days of calories below 1400.

Cheryl- I bet you are up 0.3 lbs because of the stress. I have read that even if you eat the same amount of calories, if you have increased stress, you will lose less than on weeks that you have more stress....something about hormones or something. Once your stress gets back to normal for a while, i bet the weight will just fall off. Thank you so much for those quiche recipes. YUM, YUM. Cant wait to try them...its great that some would be good for breakfast and some good for dinner. I need some dinner ideas, so those will be a nice change.

Jelynn- That sucks about your gain this week. You may have just weighed in on the "wrong day". My scale is crazy like that. My official day is friday, sometimes i will weigh 2 pounds lighter on thursday than on friday, then it will be back down two pounds again by saturday...SO SO SO frustrating. But then the next week i will have like a 3.5 pound loss...so it all comes out in the wash. That is funny about McD's...it tastes so good going down but boy i sure feel gross and greasy and bloated after i eat anything from Mcd for some reason. Although, i hate to admit, that will probably be my splurge lunch tomorrow. That is the only resturaunt close to my work...but we will see. Glad you got a new washer and dryer. We bought one of those new washers just a month or two ago and i LOVE it. Seems like i can go through a mound of clothes in half the time and it doesnt even seem that much bigger, i guess missing the middle aggitator makes a world of difference. OH, plus, my favorite part about it, is that it adds the downey when it needs it...i dont have to listen for the rince cycle anymore.

Ok, i have put it off long enough...gotta go to the gym.

Hey everyone- just a quick post today. I need to go shopping in a minute to get birthday party stuff. I'll be glad when it's over-- is that bad? lol

Had a good t-tapp workout this morning even though I didn't want to get out of bed. Even half way through I was trying to talk myself into quitting, but I stuck it out

I have a feeling my "gain" has something to do with all the diet coke I've been drinking. I know it bloats me up, but I can't give it up...yet. trying to cut down a bit.

Anyway- I'll try to post again later. Happy Thursday!

Good Friday morning. Lost 2.2 at weigh in this morning...woohoo. That put me into the 30 pounds gone range AND i got to add a dragonfly. I didnt think i would pull it off...i was weighing in pretty heavy last night at 3 pounds up from ticker weight...i dont know what happened but i lost the 3 pounds up, plus two to boot. I even took a risk and weighed several times and it was the same all times.

Robbin- Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear robbin, happy birthday to you. And big congrats on that scale staying down. Pounds lost is definately the best present you can give yourself. WTG.

Jelynn-Good for you for doing that workout anyway. I know that feeling well, the one where you have to push for every single second you are doing it...then FINALLY, what a sense of accomplishment when you stick to it and do the whole routine. Good job.

Ok, back to work, talk to you gals later.

Hi Ladies -- I know I went MIA again for a long time, but many stressful happenings going on in my life, and I've been very depressed for awhile now. I wanted to let all of you know that my mom passed away Tuesday morning, and we buried her yesterday. She did have another major surgery on her leg, from where the bone cancer had been, just at the end of August, and came through it very well. She had to be in a rehabilitation center for a month and the day after she came back to her own home, she had a mild heart attack, and then was in congestive heart failure. This past weekend, she fell in her apartment and hurt her good leg very bad, and had been in the hospital ever since. They think she threw a blood clot that went to her heart, but we don't know for sure. She was doing very good on Tuesday morning and they were in the process of getting her discharge papers together and within a half hour, she had passed away in her bed. This is the worst thing I've ever had to go through in my whole life, and I know they say that time heals, but this will take a long long time. I'm thankful the cemetery is just about a mile from my home so I'm able to go visit her often. All I can keep thinking and wishing is that I had one more time to talk with her, and give her a hug and kiss. I had been back on plan since October 1st and losing weight and exercising again, but the weight I've been losing lately is not a healthy way, because I just have no appetite at all right now. I hope all of you have a good day.

Hugs, Michelle

Michelle...I'm so sorry for your loss. I truely believe that our love ones are always around us, you are not able to hear her, but I think you will feel her presence. There is nothing wrong with you talking to her be it at home or at the cemetary. We are here for you!

Robbin...Happy Birthday my friend!!! Your right, 55 lbs gone is a wonderful gift you have given yourself.

Stacy...WhoooHoo on 2 lbs gone. Wish the fairy fat mother would come my way. Hope she shows up this weekend.

Doing pretty good staying on track today. The FD has been a pain, but what else is new. Got the truck back from the shop and it didn't break us. Hubby is going to try and put the new heater in this weekend. Hope that goes better than the starter did. I sure could of used the heater today, it was 32 and my hands sure were cold on the drive home. We are going to be cold all weekend. At least the snow isn't flying.

Cheryl

Hi chickies, I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Robbin, You are almost in the 210s. Yeehaw!! I hope you had a great birthday. Yes, losing that weight has been the best gift you could have had. Just think, by your next birthday, youíll be able to celebrate that youíve met your goal!

Louie, I hope you have had a good weekend away.

Stacey, I was finally able to bring my calories back down this week. And, as soon as I do, the scales start moving. Coincidence?? I think not! Well actually, I think it is good to fluctuates calories higher some days then lower other days. YAY on adding another dragonfly.

Emily, Good for you for doing that workout even when you didnít feel like it. But doesnít that feeling at the end make it all worth it?

Michelle, Itís so nice to see you on this thread (Weíre also on the WATP thread together). I know you will have some good days and some bad days as you grieve for your mom. But keep checking in here with us as you feel able to. Weíre here for you.

Cheryl, My goodness itís cold there isnít it! I hope the fat fairy visits you this weekend.

I have had a couple of days this week with a loss, so Iím celebrating 120 lost as of today! I didnít exercise Thursday or Friday due to back pain, but Iím back at it today, since I felt much better. I also helped my son pick up trash at the football field today. He earned $60 for it, and I was going to go along and walk while he did the work, but I ended up helping him, since it was taking him forever. Heís trying to save his money to buy a bass guitar, so itís for a good purpose at least.

This coming week will be another challenging week for me, as I have a conference Tuesday Ė Friday. The good news is that the hotel has an exercise room, so Iíll be able to exercise. Of course, the downside is that every meal at the conference will have things I shouldnít eat (desserts for example).

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend.

Hello everyone! Glad to see you are doing so well. Thanks for the answers on the cramps thing, lol and also for the kudos on spin classes. I wish all of you would try them, they are just sooo GOOD! Yes they are hard work, but so rewarding! and addictive! uhmmm.

Happy Birthday Robbin. My scale said 222 today so we are about the same weight, wanna race to the 210s? Let's try to get there by the end of the month, it could totally happen!

Tammy- You are a rockstar! 120 lost!?!?!?! WOW, way to go girl!

Stacy-congrats on losing 2 lbs! That's just fantastic!

Jelynn! Quit drinking that diet soda girl, it probably is the reason you were up. You should be back down in no time once you stop having it. They will still be making them once you reach your goal, so you can have them then, lol.

Hope everyone is having a great week end. Mine is going well, I am down 2.4lbs this week! YAY!
Keep up the great work everyone!
