Well here I am again. I am going to try and catch up with everyone.
Did everyone notice my new photo of me in my avatar.?
It is a Valentine theme.
Happy belated birthday to you.
Happy belated birthday to you.
Happy belated birthday dear Thinthinker.
Happy belated birthday to youuuuuuu
I am so sorry I miss your birthday.
How is your friends husband and son that were in the hospital? How hard that must be on everyone.
How was your trip to Niagra Falls.? Didn't you go there not long ago?
Ladybug... you did great at your meetings. Way to go. I am proud of you. You wrote so many good things I can't respond to them all. And I want to congratulate you on your belly dancing. That is sooooo cool. I just may have to check it out myself. LOL
Malia... Visualization is a great tool. You don't have to know what you would look like. Just visualize what you WANT to look like. Many many years ago visualization and meditation helped me lose 80 pounds. Thanks for reminding me.
You also mentioned making a PLAN OF ACTION for you weight loss. What a great idea. When we go to war we have a plan of action. To keep peace we have a plan of action. Well I am at war with this food addiction and I want to find a peaceful solution... so I too need a PLAN OF ACTION. Like Ladybug said... we can share our plans on Motivation Monday and Tuesday Tips.
Katrina... thanks for the Thankful Thursday you posted. We all need to be reminded of all those things we tend to take for granted.
Susie... you mentioned "comfort foods". I tried using those the last 2 weeks... but instead of comforting me they just made me fatter.
When you are crying while you are eating your so called comfort foods... I think it is obvious that they cause more stress than comfort in the long run. Soon I will live and learn. LOL.
I want to thank you for hanging in there. Your example of "keep on keeping on" has helped me so often to not throw in the towel and quit. Thank you so much !!!! Your baby steps of sometimes one forward and two backwards but still trying and losing
is so helpful. 45lbs of success you have had with those baby steps!!!!
As far as your hubby woes.... WELCOME TO MY WORLD.
LOL My husband doesn't even put his own dirty clothes in the hamper for me to wash. He tosses them in that direction.
I removed the lid so hopefully some would go inside... but no luck... he is a lousy shot. Several years ago when I worked outside the home I told him if they were not IN the hamper I would not wash them. It took several weeks before he got the message. He wore dirty underwear.
But when I quit working I started picking up after him and he immediately went back to his old ways. Good luck training him. I suggest you get a dog training book and use it as a guide as how to train a husband.
There is an old movie from the 60's that was really cute that used that idea.
Mary... a size 1X.... that is super. congratulations!!!! Those extra 2lbs will be off in no time.
Michelle... hope Andrews ears are better. Poor baby. Did you get that 4-7 inces of snow? You said you have been off program and you can't stand yourself. Well that is where I have been too.... BUT
... Michelle.... each day is a new beginning. Today is a new day. Monday list each and every little victory you have. List that you drank one glass of water. Then list the second glass of water. List walking down the stairs. List every little thing you do. Then build
your recovery back... one baby step at a time.
Jen... You did get 7 inches of snow. I sure hope you and your family is feeling better.
I wish I had gotten out of Pizza Hut last night before I ate so much. I know better.... I just didn't care.
BUT TODAY IS A NEW DAY.
Taz... glad you breezed in to say HI.
You always have such cute pics. We sure miss you but glad your group is going strong.
Syn... I am soooo sorry about your dad. I know what all you have been through. My heart is with you.
Joanne.... I love your quote under your avatar... "No turning back now". I think that is soooo good. Only look forward. Make a decision and go with it!!!!
well it has taken me forever to just respond to the last thread. I am not even going to attempt to respond to the other two I missed.
Just know I am going to read them and go on from here.
Trixii... you dropped in and dropped out just as fast. Now that is not giving it a fair chance. If you are reading this... PLEASE do as our title suggests..... READY TO TRY AGAIN !!!!! We all slip and have to try again. Please please try again with us.
That goes to everyone I have missed. Today is a new day... a new beginning.
