Today was a bit quiet for posting, so I thought I would take care of starting a new thread.
Latisia- that low fat eating sounds interesting.........although right now I am just having trouble with eating period!!!!! Keep us informed as to how you fare.
Spryng- glad that your family is feeling better. It is so sad to see little ones sick . I think you are on to something with taking it slow getting these last 10 # off. You know you will succeed and allowing more time destresses it a lot.

My day ended on a bit of a sour note. Dh was in a bad mood (working on a home improvement project that just seemed doomed for today). I have had a tough time keeping a smile on my face. But, tomorrow is another day!!!!!!!! And a fresh start.
Ok, I had better get some shut eye.
See ya tomorrow!

Default Hello, may I join you?

Hi everyone

My name is Sam and I a SAHM with a 1yr old dd and am 19 weeks pg with no.2. I've been a SAHM for 2 months now after being made redundant. Still getting used to it, though liking it more as I go along.

At the moment I'm not trying to lose weight obviously, as I'm pg, but I've been with 3fc for years now and am staying so that I can get the help I need to keep healthy during the pgy and lost the extra after.

Would you mind if I join you?
Sam

Good morning!!!!!!
Sam- WELCOME!! Of course we do not mind if you join us! It is great to have new friends here. Congrats on your pg. 19 weeks- how are you feeling? Some ladies find the 2nd (and subsequent) pregnancies a bit harder- primarily because you have other little ones to chase around! When are you due (forgive me, my brain cells are not working this am). How much weight do you want to take off (after baby, of course!) We have a friend who stops in from time to time at this thread who just had her 5th baby- and I think did a really good job of controlling her weight gain during his pregnancy. I think she did a sort of modified Weight Watchers program just to keep from gaining too much. Anyway- welcome! Feel free to stop in whenever you can.

Well, despite that I am tired (5 hours of sleep will do that to you) I am off for another day of insanity. I got a rainy 25 minute walk in this am- and hope to get my step tape in this morning too. I have to break out of this slump somehow. Dh appoligized for his irritability last nite. My two oldest are off to school and the little one( Dd6) is still asleep. So I had better get off this and take advantage of that. Have a great day!
Ginny

Good afternoon all!
Well now we have two working computers again!! It's so great. We have this one set up in the kitchen now and I just love it. I can write posts and watch the kids at the same time!! Isn't it funny how little things can make your day??
I want to welcome Sam and congrats on your pregnancy!! 19 weeks wow! You are almost half way there!! Do you know what you are having yet?
I have two kids. A daughter who is 2 and 4 months and a son who is 1 and 4 months (he'll be 1 and 5 months on the 6th) They are 11 months apart. Has this been a normal pregnancy so far? Sometimes I want another baby but then again I don't. I go through phases. Right now I'm enjoying my 2 and looking forward to all the fun things I'll do with them this summer.
Anyway, my day is going ok. It's a lazy day for me. I don't feel like cleaning much so I've just been playing with the kids and relaxing. I think I'm entitled once in a while. We have church tonight so I'm getting things ready for that too.
Well guess I'll get off here. I hope everyone is having a good day.

Good Evening Girls!

Sam~ Welcome Hon. Congrat's to you with your pregnancy. I hope to see you posting. I'm also a SAHM. I have 2 Dd's one is 1 and the other 3. It will be great getting to know you.

Jackie~ I had to re-register. It was a mess but is all undercontrol now. Thanks for the advice tho.

Spryng~ Glad to know the babe's are better. I also agree, you are entitled to a "funday"! How's the critters?

Ginny~ I'm concerned about you. Seems you are burning your candle at both ends. You could be headed for a breakdown. Please, try and get alittle more rest. Have you ever seen the stress tabs, it's a vitamin. Momma takes them. Would you benifit from something like this? BTW, you mentioned a few posts back that your Dh had commented you were being difficult. Or something along those lines? Bahh! Men. They always say the wrong thing when we are vulnerable (sp?). You are one of the most caring giving understanding women. Water off a ducks back. Ya know? Hope you are well.

Gemini~ glad to see you posted. I'm still keeping you in my prayers. If you ever need someone to vent to, pm me anytime. I don't give very good advice but I'm a good listener.

Sheila~ How are you darlin'? What is your program now? I hope you find something that works for you. Have you learned anything about Jackie's fit for life. She is doing really well. Might be something for you. What kinds of food do you enjoy? Weakness and such? I'll keep my eye out. Maybe I'll see something. Pm me the details if you like.

T-girl~ Glad you are doing well. You are still in my prayers. Keep it up with the tae bo. Let me know how the results are. I'm excited to see how you have loss too.

As for me, I arrived at 5pm yesterday. Kids are enjoying their grandparents and great grandparents. I'm still trying to get "settled". Eating today and yesterday was poor. Momma's scale said 125# this morn. Go figure? Maybe it is just different from mine? I'm not letting it bother me to bad. I ran 5 miles this morning. Hope that will make up for all the bad eating. I aso did an hour of yoga. I'm really missing my bike and Dh. But tomorrow is a new day. I'm hoping to gain some control.
Nighty, nite!
Misty

Hello Everyone!

I've been quite busy this week. Lot's going on in my nick of the woods. And to top things off today, like it wasn't busy enough-dd & I were on our way home after school today & dd saw something in the road. She insisted that we go back & check to see what it was. Thank goodness we did because it turned out to be a baby squirrel. I was afraid to touch it, so I found something in my car to give it a little shove. This didn't work, so I found some old clothes in the car, got brave & made a mit out of an old flannel nighty & carefully picked it up & put it under a tree. I could tell that it was too young to fend for itself & couldn't find any squirrel nests close by, so we decided to take it to a Rehabilitation Center for injured & orphan animals that is about 40 minutes from our house. We at first had it in dd's backpack, but decided to stop by the vet & pick up a pet taxi for it. The vet told us that we made the right choice, as the poor little fellow was only about 4 weeks old. It was so cute, but so tiny! It could fit in the palm of my hand. All-in-all, it was well worth my 3 hour time investment & we felt so good that we were able to help it. (It got me out of making dinner too!) I hope you all didn't mind me sharing my story,as it sure gave me a warm & fuzzy feeling inside. (No pun intended ) Yesterday I had to take my FIL to the heart specialist again, so this was another busy day for me too! I decided to write things down on paper & hand it to the nurse. This way we wouldn't forget to mention anything to the doctor. After the Dr. read my notes, he decided that my MIL needed a break from everything & put in an order for my FIL to have a nurse stop by their house for an evaluation. Once he's evaluated, they should be getting an aide to help relieve my MIL & also a Physical Therapist to try & strengthen my FIL's mobility. Finally, an answer to our prayers! Well, so much of the stories here. I've been pretty much staying OP, but have missed pedalling a few times this week. I did get a chance to stay on for l.5 hrs. yesterday & this gave me the opportunity to catch up on reading everyone's posts here on the thread. Sam: Welcome to our thread & so glad that you have joined us! You will see that we are more than a group of Mom's trying to lose weight, but also here for the other "ups & downs" in our lives. We believe that total support in our lives gives us the willpower to keep on going. So, how is your pregnancy going? Any complications along the way at all? I sure hope not, as this should be a joyous time in your life. You have made the right decision by staying "tuned in" with 3FC's, as this should help you in trying to make good food choices. Ginny: My mind is a little bit foggy, so please help me out by letting me know which one of our buddies just recently had a baby. Glad to hear that you were able to squeeze in a walk early in the a.m. Did you get a chance to do the tape? I'm sorry that you are in a slump & feeling so overwhelmed. It sounds like you need to put your feet up for awhile & sip some tea & after that-snooze off for a nap! I hope you were able to get the much needed extra sleep tonight. I usually run on 6 hrs of sleep p/night & I know anything less than that, I feel like a zomby. I sure hope that my insomnia goes away after I get done posting here. I was in bed, but after tossing & turning 'til ll:30, I decided to get up & go online. And Ginny, I'm so happy to hear that your dh apologized to you. Somehow when we receive an apology, it gives us a little lift, doesn't it? Spryng: Good for you that you took time out to "play" a little! This is always an energy booster. And about your computers: Is the one in your kitchen a laptop? When my DH isn't traveling, I use his in the kitchen while he's on day trips or at night when everyone else has went to bed. I hate going down in the dingy basement, but once I'm typing away, I guess I kind of forget where I am & then it's not as bad anymore. At night it gives me the spooks though! Did your dh by another control for your game cube? Do you ever compete against each other on the game cube? I'm so glad to hear that your family is back to feeling better. Latisia: It sounds as though you are in better spirits again. (Or you make a great actress!) So-how did the cleaning go today? I cleaned the main floor of my house today, but as usual...didn't have time for the 2nd floor where the real big mess is!! Good for you that you got back on track with staying OP! I've been struggling with trying to stay OP this week, but haven't really gave in yet, thank goodness. Matter of factly, I was ready to grab a midnight snack from the fridge awhile ago, but decided to come here for support instead. Thanks Gals! Latisia, enjoy your "play day" with your ds on Saturday, as they grow up so fast! It's kind of scarry how fast the time goes, as it just seems like yesterday that my 13 y/o ds was a baby. Don't forget to get your camera out! Jen: I hope that you're doing okay. I miss seeing your posts! Just remember that once you post & "vent" a little, you'll feel much better, at least it helps me! (You just have to put up with my long..... posts!)
Misty: I'm surprised to see you posting already. I guess I won't miss you after all! Sorry to hear that you had to re-register again. Had to change your username a "lil bit" huh? Oh well, you're logged in now & hopefully you saved your password on your Mom's computer. So, hows the vacation coming along? I hope that you feel more "settled in" when you wake up in the a.m. I bet you called your DH already, didn't you? Did you leave your pink robe back home with him? The way the weather has been, he might need it! Sorry to hear that your eating was poor yesterday. It sounds like you got it under control with the exercise though. Well, enjoy your vacation! Sheila: Where are you & how are you doing? I miss seeing your posts! Just remember-we're here for you! Hopefully you found some tranquility by one of those peaceful places in the pictures that you posted. As I told Jen, coming here to vent helps me out quite a bit! Speaking of helping me out-I'm getting so tired that I'm having a hard time typing here. I guess I'm over the insomnia now. Good Night all! I hope I didn't miss any of you, but I'm so tired now that I can't even think straight! TTFN

Good morning everyone!
Looks like it's going to be a beautiful day today. I hope so.
Misty I was so happy to see your post! How far away do your parents live?? I hope today goes well for you. The critters are doing great! We have 8 turtles now and they are so fun to watch! Three little bitty ones and 5 larger ones. The crawfish are thriving. I have to clean the aquarium today sometime. They are messy pets
Jackie, I'm so glad that you fought that urge to snack. You are doing so great with FFL. It makes me want to give it another go but I just can't keep with the proper food combining. I think I will try low fat though and see what it does for me.
Ginny, I hope things are better on the home front for you. I'm thinking about you alot lately.
Well, this is about all I an do this morning. My 2 yo is begging to play on the computer. I bought her some toddler learning cds and a preschool one. Well after I installed the preschool one she just went to town. She can't control the mouse very well but she suprised me with how much she knows!! She is very good at matching shapes and numbers and letters. This is a program for 4-5 yo. So I'm sure the toddler one should be a breeze for her. I guess I'm gushing. I'm just so proud of her sometimes!!
Somebody asked if this computer in the kitchen is a laptop. I wish! no, it's a regular computer. We have a built in desk/bar table in the kitchen and I cleaned it off and the computer sits perfectly on it and it out of the way.
Anyway, I'm going to give low fat a try today. I'm still a little unsure on the details of this kind of diet but I'll give it my best. I'm just not sure what I can eat. So I keep my fat grams at 20 or less a day but does that mean I can eat as much as I want of "no fat" foods like fruit and such??? I don't have to count cals at all???? You see? Still a little unsure of the details. But Latisia is helping me out alot
Talk to you later!!

Default Sorry I been away for a bit

I was going thru a "funk " and I think I am at the end of my self piting stage now..*fingerscrossed*When I am in a thing like that I know I should stay away from people cause I tend to be a downer..Just been trying to dealing with stuff at home and trying to deal with some religious thoughts which I wont discuss on here,no offense to anyone but I have learned never talk religion or politics on a furum those being touchy issues..Anyway I am backkkkkk
Thanks everyone for asking about me, Gosh it felt good to be missed..I been working on a family site while being on Hiatus which is far from finished since my A drive is now shot and most my favorite pics are on those darn floppies
PLus I think I am allergic to my furbabies.. I found out the siamese cats produce a different oil in their fur which make sense since I been hiving out and itching like crazy..Benadryll helps but it is a knockout thing for me..2 of those pills and I am in dream land.. I would hate to give them up Tyson is finally trusting and loving to me..Giving him up would send him into a relapse into being scared ifI gave him up.. <speak of the lil devil, he wants to help me type>His purr is LOUD!!The little chump even sits on my pillow and stares till I open my eyes..Which I admit scared me the first time,since he usually hissed at me when he was less loviedovie..Ever see a pair of animal eyes staring into yours when you first wake up???
I wasnt anywhere near a tranquil spot lately..Making that new site helped me though
The Caron Page Thats where it is ,basically just things that I could find on my computer .. I gues I will have to go to moms with my disks and email myself some of my other pics from my disks till I can get A drive woking again..Then I will have to save them to desktop and upload them to the new site..I havent put my own pic on that site yet either but I will have a page of just family pics and links of things of interest..
Yes for the record I did put up a link to the 3FC as well as Flylady ..I have a few more links I want to add but I am doing this for a hobby and fun so I want to take time and do it right..It is my first real attempt on a home page site ..
Going to add pages for different things that have helped me and my family and different sites that I might help others .(Now just to find all the links)
Spryng .. I used to have the Jumpstart kindergarten installed for my son but he got to the point where that was too easy for him so now there is a Jumpstart first grade installed which he is getting bored with as well.. He is 4 will be 5 in July..Thank GOD that kindergarten is starting for him in Sept..
Freckles.....I am sure that baby squirrel thanks you for stopping and helping..And KUDOS to you on getting the help your MIL and FIL needed ..I used to bring my MIL to every docs appt she has but it got to the point where FIL would just automattically depend on me for that so he could sit home and do NOTHING ..He wouldnt help her out whatso ever ..She has had half her foot amputated due to diabetes and he wouldnt even cook for her..Welll not to sound like a toughie that picks on old people but DH and I had a little "visit" with dear old FIL and well lets just say he is a new man..He cooks and cleans and does what he should be doing ,(including driving her to her appts) and if I get any drift that he isnt taking care of her we go and have another friendly visit .To renew his husbandly values ..He isnt a spring chicken ,but he is a sad sad excuse for a hubby (he isnt DH father ,just someone that married his mom to live off of,he has never worked claimed to be illiterate (which was false he filled out disability forms in less then an hour CORRECTLY without help)Tried to claim to be diabetic till one time he was in the hospital and out of spite I asked his doctor (in front of the entire family) how has his sugar levels been since he has been prone to quick changing sugar levels..His doctor looked at me and said, I am sorry but your Father isnt diabetic, and has had no signs or concerns of it either.. Ohh I am sorry Doctor I must have been thinking of my mom..Dont ask me why I said all that but I been outta focus lately..Just glad that you have the strength and normal in laws...
Lilbit...I went back to the same thing I was doing before.. I feel terrible that I couldnt do the adkins but maybe I will try again when things are better..As for weaknesses and food enjoyment I will have to think of it.. I really dont enjoy food just something that a person eats to live, I am a sap for salads thou with tomatoes and radishes (as many veggies I can buy I will throw in a salad..)Yup even raw brocili and raw zuccheenie (I know That is way off spelling wise but it isnt an easy spelling anyway.)Your moms scale is off dont worry about it.. Glad you got time to log on and post .. I have never really been away from DH in the 20 years I have been with him (17 married years) so I dont know how it is to miss him... Sometimes I wish I could go somewhere to see if I would miss him..
Dreamer......
Welcome To OUR LITTLE THREAD Sorry I didnt welcome you earlier ..Also CONGRATS on your prgnancy!! 19 weeks ,(my prenatal mind is a bit off ) so that leaves only 21 weeks left right??? My friend is 11 weeks now she is due Nov 21 ..When is your due date and besides saying you want a healthy baby do you want a girl healthy baby or a boy healthy baby..Do you want to know ahead of delivery which it will be?? or just keep it as a surprise ?? I know I ask some really off the wall questions ..But I try not to (it doesnt always work) You know I didnt think of weight when I was pregnant ,which I really should have since I started at 203 and ended up 337 (327 after my son was born ) but oh well hindsight is 20/20 cant go back and fix it so I might as well fix it in the present.. I have a 4y/o DS and a 12y/o DD
ECMom... You know if I got here earlier I would of put in a link to the last post ( it is fun for me to do and since I get a bit unfocused I can check back once in a while)I never print the posts up to read later since DH thinks I am a bit addicted already to the site I dont think he would want to see printouts as well.
Tgirl Congrats on keeping sooo focused..I will get that way soon I am sure of it..
Well all I think I typed too much..My fingertips are kinda tired ..And Ds wants to have a friend to play Nintendo with..(Me )
Take Care all Talk soon
Sheila
Dont know if I mentioned this already but I am now done to 254.5

Hi again!! I know I just posted a couple of hours ago but I wanted everyone to know that I am officially trying the low fat diet. My husband was so excited to hear about it. When he was 16 his family was put on a low fat diet and he said he really liked it. They all lost weight from it. He knew lots of details about it. Like I can eat all the fruit and vegetables I want (just till satisfied not stuffed) and there are lots of products that are low-fat or fat free that I can have. I'm excited now. I hope this is the one I can stick too. That's why I loved atkins. You could eat all you wanted of "certain" foods and on low cal you can't. I missed breakfast this morning because of cleaning. Now my house is in order and I feel better about that, I'm always afraid someone will stop by when the house isn't clean. I had a lean pocket for lunch and am planning a nice dinner of pasta (low fat version) baked poatoes, salad, and maybe one other vegetable. Luckily my kids LOVE vegetables so they will like the variety. Then I also have fat free yogurt to have as a snack so I think this is really doable. I want to buy some other fat free things. I have fat free mayo and margerine, so I'm ready to start anyway. Ok, I guess I didn't have to give you a detailed account of what I am doing but when I'm excited I just babble.
Sheila I am so glad that you posted. I know what you mean about not wanting to post when you feel down. It's wierd how personalities and moods come across through typing huh? But whenever you feel down feel free to post here. That's what we are here for. To listen to you and just be your friend. Sometimes we just need to vent and that's ok. All of us have done it here and will do it again and you are more than welcome to join It's funny how I think of all these ladies as close friends of mine. I thrive on hearing from them everyday, not just to help me lose weight but to just be a friend. And you are included in that. You are a great person and have alot to contribute here, and I always enjoy your posts whether they are short and to the point or long and drawn out with your heart laid out for all of us to draw from. OK, guess I'm getting mushy. I just want you to know that you are needed here and never to feel that you are too much for us or too down to write anything. We are here for you!!!
OK, guess I need to get off. It's really nice having this computer in the kitchen. Bye.

Hi girls....

firstly, welcome to Sam! Glad you have joined us, and look forward to hearing more about your impending arrival.

Well, I have been reading the posts, just have not been able to respond. Things are crazy around here and today has been just awful. And I feel terrible because I have not been a very good cyber-friend to you girls lately. But, I'm going to vent a bit right now, even though I really feel like I don't deserve your time or attention.

My eating has been atrocious (still) and my exercise has been non-existent. But, I've been in total denial over it... you know... "oh, I'll ride my bike later" and "oh, just a few cookies won't hurt me". I am totally out of control and need to reel myself in. In fact, I am chomping cookies as I sit here and type! Go ahead, tell me girls... I need a kick in the a__!!!!! You're probably thinking, "What the he__ is this chick's problem??? Put down the cookies, turn off the computer, and peddle that bike!" Trust me, I would not fault anyone for being disgusted with me right now... I am disgusted with myself.

So why am I in this mode??? I could give you every excuse in the book.... I'm busy running around with the kids, I'm working extra hours, trying to keep up with the house, yadda yadda yadaa. They're all just excuses!!!

Today, we were late getting to the doc's for the baby's 18 month check-up because I just had too much going on and couldn't get there in time. Of course, they would not see us, so I had to reschedule for next week. Well, I wanted to just throw myself on the floor right then and there and have a good cry. And the day is not getting any better. Tonight, dh and I have to attend the wake of a very dear friend's father. We had a message from our friend's husband yesterday that her father had died Tuesday night. Dh called our friends last night while I was at work, and it turns out that the father didn't just die, but he shot himself in the chest! I feel so badly for our friend... losing a parent is so difficult, but to lose her father in this way.... I just cannot imagine.

So, I am full of denial and self-pity right now... I'm so sorry to dump this on all of you, but I just needed to get some of it out. Maybe seeing it in print will help wake me up a little. Thank you, girls, for listening.....

Jen~ I'm glad to see you posting. You deserve the right to vent. No doubt. You are as welcome as the rest of us. I'm very sorry to hear about your friends loss. It is tragic. As far as the bad eating. I'm guilty also. But we really just have to get over ourselves and realize what we need to be doing, right? I've been worried `bout ya. I hope you can get sometime to grasp a thought of your own and regroup. BTW, we wait sometimes 4 hours on a doctor who has an "emergency" why must they make us reschedule while we are a few minutes late. Majorly ticks me off!

Spryng~ I'm about 6 hours away from home. Not so sure how many miles. The low fat plan sounds really good. I'm excited for you and that this is something your Dh will be doing also. After your recent scare with him and all. Keep me up to date. I'm v. interested.

Jackie~ Loved the squirrel story. Momma and Daddy have tiny albiono ones running everywere. I'll try and get a picture to post for you. They live on a wildlife reserve. You are a v. special lady BTW. Most would not have gone so far out of their way. I left the robe at home! Hope he is wearing it!!! I never called him, are you suprized? It's sorda funny, we are v. close. We vacation apart alot so it is a norm. for us. We instant message at night for a few minutes but thats about it. Absence makes the heart grow fonder!

Ginny~ hope you are getting your walk in. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sheila~ Glad to see you posting. I hope you a feeling better. I was sorry to hear you may be allergic to your new furbabies. I hope it subsides. I'm allergic to everything! It is awful. No pets in our home. I always wanted one of those little lap dogs too. Anyhow, you are fortunate to enjoy a hearty salad instead of half of a cheesecake (like me!). Let us know how it all goes.

Sam~ Hope your feeling well and getting plenty of rest.

T-girl~ you have been on my mind. I had to re-register so if you need me, pm me on this nic. Congrat's on staying OP. Was today your weigh in? How'd it go?

Last, I'm doing great. I'm settling in a bit. I've devised myself a new plan. Seeing as I am so close to my goal. I'm not going to count calories anylonger. I'm now cutting all portions in half and increasing my exercise program. I guess if the rest of the #'s don't come off it will be okay. I had a revolation this morning. I'll let you all in on it. I put on a pair of size 14 girls pants today. I believe this is small enough. I consignment shop so I never really pay much mind to the sizes. I sorda hold up items and compare if they will fit. I got home and was showing Momma all of my finds. She fliped over the size 14's. Me too.
I have to get. Kiddies are raring to go!
Love,
Misty

It's me again
Just wanted to let you know that I did very good today. Dinner was delicous! I had an angel hair pasta dish, corn, beans, baked potatoe with fat free margerine, and I even had fat free skim milk to drink!!! That was so good. I can't tell you how long it's been since I drank anything but water. So in all today I've had about 17 grams of fat. I call that a success!!!! I may have a yogurt later but other than that I'm done for today. I think this may be the "ONE". I'm in love with a diet one again. That hasn't happened in a long long time. I really feel confidant this time. 10 more lbs to go and then I'm done!!!!!
How does a 6 hour trip work with two toddlers?? Misty, my in laws are 4 hours away and I hate every second of the drive. You are my hero!! Actually last time we went wasn't bad at all because we left about 1 hour before their normal nap time so they slept the last 1/2 of the trip which was nice. But on the way home we didn't time it so good. It was 3 long hours of crying and screaming to get out. We are suppose to go back at the end of this month but we haven't decided for sure yet. It's sad that you are allergic to animals. Maybe you too can get something like a turtle or lizard. Not many people are allergic to those reptiles. And a size 14 in girls is AMAZING!!!! I can't believe you still don't feel thin enough. What size do you normally wear in women's?? I'm hoping that when I hit my goal weight I'll be in a 6. You are doing so great!!
OK then, guess it's time to go again. Hope everyone has a great night and a fantastic weekend!!
