Talking St. Pat's Poundage Pledge Party

Name courtesy of Angel-Eyes, who was the first to post on St. V's Day. I am on day one of a new streak, having eaten my way through a 12-hour car trip yesterday for yet another job interview.

My St. Pat's goal is the same 10 pounds from where I started on the 10th (e.g., "10 From The 10th). As always (I feel like the guy on the tape on Mission Impossible when I say this), I don't post my weight, but do post pounds lost or gained. I imagine I've gained this week, but c'est la vie!

My "streak" program is to eat a weekly average of between 1500-2000 calories, splurge days allowed! I exercise twice a day, but rest days are allowed! See ... I can't lose on this program (unless it be pounds).

I'm going to try to spend less time on the internet and more time exercising, too!

Congratulations to all who met their goals during the season just passed!

Top o' the mornin' ... we are LOSERS! Or MAINTAINERS! Ain't it great?

Talking Personal Poundage Pledge!!!

Hey there.....tOP O' THE MORNIN TO YOU!!! Well here I am ready and eager for my personal poundage pledge. I started mid-cycle to the St. V day thread and never really put forth a pledge. I really wasn't sure what ww's had in mind for me or if I could really stay within the guidelines. Now that I'm a seasoned ww..(after 3 glorious weeks!!) ....I will committ to a goal of or should I say.... A LOSS OF....(LETS BE POSTIVIE!!) of 8 lbs.

So I here by committ to the following:

1. Continue to journal and follow the ww's program.
2. Continue to drink and love the benefits of water and what it does for my body.
3. Start to incorporate excercise into my daily routine. This girl is got to "move and shake" things up abit.
4.Remain positive and see the "up" side and the virtues of my weight loss journey. This is a better me!!

I'm glad to be a part of this group, thanks for all your support!!

Default Part II of I

Ending my eating day at 1700 calories, with a.m. exercise of 20 jogwalking minutes. Need to do weights in a bit, slow and heavy as my usual jumpy circuit training sounds too tiring.

Angel-Eyes: Top o' the evening! Your plan sounds sensible and fun, especially the moving and shaking. You should have no trouble kissing eight pounds good-bye by March 15. Better than kissing the Blarney Stone, eh? I am glad you are a part of the group, too!

To All: Begorah! Have a wonderful evening.

Default St. Pat's Day, here we come!!!

I'm still streaking to somewhere, now to St. Pat's Day.

My pledge to myself: continue to eat a balanced diet, continue to drink that water, continue to exercise regularly, continue to watch those carbs, and continue to keep myself in a happy, positive frame of mind.

Each day gives us the opportunity to restart ourselves. Isn't that great!!!

Talking Whee, It's Day 3 For Me

Ending with 1840 calories; exercise this a.m. was a 90-minute hike; Pilates later, just 10 minutes or so, as I have a bad headache. It is somewhat hot here and I'm feeling the desire for ice cream already!

Well, leapin' leprechauns, Joanie, hello, and top o'the morning to Joshie's Mommy, too!


So the Little Leapin' Leprechauns (I love that phrase, Joanie) commit to St. Patrick's Day streaks and poundage goals of:

Angel-Eyes: 8 down
JoJoJo2: Maintain
Joshie's Mommy: 9 down
Joanie: 11 down!!!
Crone: 10 down


Anyone else?

Talking Day 4 & More

Leapin' Leprechauns, Joanie! You are going for 11 pounds by St. Pat's Party Day?! So, the poundage goals of the five Lovely Leprechaun Lasses read thusly:

Angel-Eyes: 8 down
JoJoJo2: Maintain
Joshie's Mommy: 9 down
Joanie: 11 down!!!
Crone: 10 down, 9 to go


As you will no doubt NOTICE above: I lost a pound this week. At my slow losing rate and with the long horrible trip I took this week for a job interview, punctuated by long hours of eating evil stuff in the car, that's not bad. I've been really careful the past two days and somehow reached all of my exercise goals despite a desire to lie on couch and watch the Olympics, feeling smug that I do not have to live in SNOW!!!

On to Day 5!

Talking a lovely lassie is it?

Hi Ladies. I've been lyeing low lately, due to a pretty disappointing weighin on Saturday. But I'm back on plan now, and part of my problem was that even though I had the banked points for a dinner out.....my weigh in was early the next day. I think next time we have a "night of mexican" it will definitely NOT BE THE NIGHT BEFORE WEIGHIN!!! I was very good with calculating my pts etc, and still had a great time. This was the first time since moving here that dh and I went out. I'm sooo looking forward to being a "lovely leprechaun lassie" that I even want other people to be green with envy!!!....LOL Here's to our success!!!

Default Day One, One More Time

Top o' the mid-morning to all Lovely Lithe Leprechaun Lasses!

Starting a new streak as yesterday's splurge day ran up to 2780, which is better than last week's high of 3008 (I was traveling and stressed, now I'm home and stressed). Exercise yesterday was 20 minutes of aerobics a.m., 10 minutes of pilates p.m.

Today, Old Dog and I jogwalked for an hour, although I had to keep stopping because she's a wimpy exerciser. Next time, she stays home. She agrees.

Sheila: Glad you dropped out of the cybervoid and into "Onderland" ... congratulations on your 3.5 pound loss.

Joanie: I loved the double gold ceremony, too. Both the Canadians and Russians showed such maturity and sportsmanlike conduct. Ditto the very young American skater "Apollo", who behaved so graciously after basically being shoved out of a gold medal (at least it looked to me as though he were shoved, but I am not the judge).

Does JoJoJo live in Canada?

Angel-Eyes: Here's to our success indeed! Those night before the weigh-ins are sometimes a problem for me, too. I occasionally compensate by waiting an extra hour in the a.m. before getting on the scale. It's important to my weight maintenance, though, to get on every single Sunday, but I don't place undue importance to a pound or so.


Let me know when the following needs updating:

Angel-Eyes: 8 down
JoJoJo2: Maintain
Joshie's Mommy: 9 down
Joanie: 11 down!!!
Crone: 10 down, 9 to go
Sheila: 10 down


Esto perpetua!

Default JoJo lives in Wyoming -

I think Joanie got me mixed up with someone else. I live in Wyoming, which is still part of the USA. I don't think we have been annexed by Canada, but then maybe I have missed something -

I am on a five day streak of healthy eating, which amounts to a good streak for me. I'm not even really trying to lose more weight, I am pretty content with where I am now.

It seems to be a question of consistency, doesn't it? When we concentrate, we do well. But if we don't concentrate, things don't go as well as we would like. We all knowwhat we should be doing, but at times it is darn difficult toachieve perfection. After all, we are all only human.

So let's all do what we know we should be doing as together we forge ahead to St. Pat's Day.
