Talking I want to talk about ME!!!

Can you almost hear the music? (for those of you that listen to country) Wanna talk about ME, wanna talk about I, wanna talk about ME, oh my me my!

I feel like I have a hundred gazillion things to say, and just not enough time to say them in!! To update a little..........I started my new job June 16th. I am in the business office in patient accts at my local hospital and I love it! I know a bunch of you remember what a hellion my last boss was.............my boss now, could not be more opposite, if she tried! She is the absolute best! She is down to earth, kind and we have alot in common. I can't believe I waited so long to finally make the move, but thank God I did.

NOW, I NEED YOU ALL TO LISTEN AND READ THIS PART!

I want to aplogize to each one of you individually for my absence. Even though it was not intentional, you guys are a very important part in my life and I should have known that you would have been worried and I should have made a bigger effort to get somewhere to a computer and let you guys know that I was ok, and hadn't just desserted you. I could no more dessert you than I could myself, because little by little, each one of you have become a very important part of my life. It means more than you know to know I can come here, no matter whether I'm OP or off and I have unconditional love and understanding. You just don't get that from everyone, you know. I don't want you to ever look at me just as someone who pops in and out and is not dedicated. I am dedicated to you, this site and to myself.

And on that note, I would like to let you know..............I BIT THE BULLET AND WENT BACK TO WW TONIGHT!!!!

Yes, believe it or not. The last time I went was 5/7/02 and at that point, I had lost 56lbs. Well, for the last two months, you guys know I haven't exactly been an angel.. I have actually only been trying since last Monday except for Wednesday. (I was a total pig that day) Me, dh & the kids went to our local drive in for a dusk till dawn movie and fireworks show and the cheeseburgers, nachos, cotton candy and kit kats proved to be just "weigh" too much for me!!! But, I was OP for the rest of the week. And you are never going to believe this:

Even though I have been eating whatever I wanted to.......

Even though I've not been exercising...........

Even though until last Monday, I've not counted a single point.....

I LOST 2.5 LBS!!!!

So, since my starting date of 2/5/02, I have lost 58.5 lbs, even though I took a 2 month hiatus. I am still scratching my head over that one! And of course you know, that I am kicking my butt saying, "Gee, imagine how much you could have lost if you were actually OP the last two months?!" But, once again my friends, that is in the past, and I have to move on. I have to live in the here and now, and the fact is................I AM GOING TO DO THIS!!

ARE YOU WITH ME!!?? YOU CAN DO IT TOO!! WE ALL CAN DO IT BECAUSE WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER!

I'm going to go for now...........I am sooo pumped! I hope you all have a wonderful night and don't forget to check out my signature! I can finally start using it again!! And proudly!!!

Angry Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!!

G'evening all!

I just wanted to comment on all the great things going on here!

Mary... Yay! Doesn't it feel great for all the waiting and wondering to be over and to have the job you wanted?! Congratulations! My hubby and I are celebrating his new job too so we know exactly how you feel!

Tina... Your post was absolutely inspirational! That's exactly how I feel... no more putting it off! We're losing weight now! No more wishing we'd started last year! I want to think of May 29/02 as a day that my life changed forever--the day I decided enough was enough! I'm glad you're back and pumped!

Man, I've gotta get to bed. It's sooo late! I'll see everyone here tomorrow (rather later today) for Weigh-In Wednesday!

TTFN

WOW, I really fell behind....I have been reading your posts but there were so many it's all whirling in my head.

Baylee, You are so right about cherishing our family and friends. Did you hear about the Govenor? Sounds like it could be serious.

Congrats to all of you doing so well. I will try to catch up with the posts over the next two days.

I have been visiting with a friend that is here from Japan, so that's how I got so far behind.

Have a good Wednesday....

Any of you want to come over tomorrow Elvis is going to be in town!!!!

Good Morning everyone!!!

So far so good....I have been OP since Sunday...I banked points sunday and monday and I maxed points yesterday...I already have in 2 glasses of water before 8 am and half a milk serving. I hate milk, I only use it in cereal. I know I should be getting it other ways but I go through spurts with yogurt. The ones I have are 4 pts. each and I'm not willing to give up those points yet. I will eventually get bored and turn to the yogurts. Maybe when my breakfast cookies get here I will have that and a yogurt for breakfast. Sounds good already!

Ok enough babbling....

Tina my friend...see...aren't you glad you went? I bet you were more aware of what you were putting in your mouth without even realizing it, resulting in that loss! You are my inspiration! I thought I was going to catch up with your loss before you came back but you are leading us all! You give us something to strive for!!

Mary....big congrats on the JOB! That is a self esteem booster! I just wish I would hear something on mine!!

And Sara....congrats on the hubby's job offer! And you too for your loss...you are doing great! The key is to never give up! Even on bad weeks or bad days...just keep on going and eventually 30 lbs will turn into 50 lbs etc. I don't know how much you have to lose but eventually we will all make our goals!

Baylee...so sorry to hear about your friend! That has got to be the hardest thing for anyone to live through. And your husband to...that scares me! When I was 21 I was hit by a car crossing the road and they didn't think I was ever going to be able to walk again...well I fooled them! I guess I was one of the fortunate ones! I can't even imagine the pain from a loss like that! Its too devastating!

OK Where the heck are da rest of ya's??? I know Andria posted on the last thread..but CRS has set in here already! Duckie is still missing...Joeanne, Malia, Susie, Thin....Jen is gone...coem back to say hi to us Jen....Lucky...2Cute is visiting mom...is she ok? What happened to our friend Theresa????

And KAT!! I can't wait till friday! I am going to meet Kat on Friday! This is so exciting!! Kat I am going to take a ride today to scope out the best and easiest place for us to meet to make it easy for you to get right back on the highway!

Well I gotta get us dressed so we can get something accomplished today!

TTFN but be sure I will be back!!!

Oh Gosh...its so lonely in here again today? Where da heck is you all? I am trying my best to wait till noon time to have my lunch which I think will be 2 97% ff national hebrew hot dogs on 2 lite buns and maybe some coleslaw mix...you know the dole kind in the bag already shredded up! I will have to concoct a mix to put on it...say a bit of ff mayo and some yogurt with spices. Tonight's dinner will be the eggplant parm for 3 pts a serving! John is working late again tonight so he can reheat it when he gets home.

Alright..I will give you all one more change to come out and post! You got till after lunch! If no one comes out...I'll just...well I'll just...heck...I'll have to beg on my hands and knees next!!

TTFN Michelle

Red face Here I come to save the day!

Get up off your hands and knees, Michelle...here I am! I had NO plans of waking up this early...I must have sensed a yearning, coming from the computer...at first I thought it was just my full bladder, seeking sweet release...but no...it was something more...the humming of the computer seemed to say...MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMichelle needs a post to read.......................................so here I sit, buck naked...(yeah that's right...no kids, remember? Ok I put my robe on, feel better now?)...to answer her plaintive cry...

We have a date for Friday! Anyone who'd like to join us, we'll pick you up at Philadelphia Int'l Airport, OK? How cool would that be? I am really looking forward to meeting our Miss Michelle!

Baylee...that is so sad...and you are so right...let each and everyone of your loved ones know each and everyday how much you love them and how much they mean to you...I take Garth Brooks' song, "If Tomorrow Never Comes" very seriously. I am so sorry about your husband, Baylee...what a devastating loss. {{{{{HUGS}}}}} Get some sleep, hon.

Tina...you kill me...No dieting, a foodfest at the all night drive-in AND a 2.5 lb loss??!?? What the **** am I doing wrong? Just kidding...I'm so happy for you and glad to have your joyous posts back!

SaraJoy! Yay for hubbys new job! I TOLD you a new door would open!! It sounds great. Good luck to both of you!

And speaking of new jobs...MARY! Congratulations! Such an impressive title...Lots of luck in your new position!...oh yes... AND in your new job!

Lucky...could you grab Elvis and head on down to Philadelphia to meet us for lunch? Grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches for everyone! PS, what happened to the Gov? Body slam? Pile driver?

Please bear with me...I have NOT had a full complement of sleep and I'm just typing whatever pops into my demented little brain as it happens....

My smart *** dh had me take an IQ test this morning on emode.com....they have all kinds of "tests" there to take. Check it out, it's free, but then they try to sell you a bill of goods...just do the free stuff. Anyway...they told him his IQ was 131...(he really IS a bright guy, and not just cause the on-line test said so!) but he just wanted to see how much lower my score would be...so, with very little pre-work sleep and a hellacious night under my belt...I smugly showed him my score of 127! HA! SO THERE, MR SMARTY PANTS!

I thought I was gonna go back to bed, but I think I'm going to grab lots of garbage bags and go clean out the two unoccupied pig styes upstairs...hee hee...just for fun.

To all of you guys missing in action...and you know who you are...COME BACK~WE MISS YOU!

ok, michelle...that's all i can muster now...I'll try to get back later, to post more words of wisdom...

Hi all!

Get up off your hands and knees Michelle! I'm here! And good job staying OP since Sunday!

Well Weigh-In Wednesday is here but since I couldn't resist the temptation to weigh myself on Monday I don't have any NEW loss to report. Still at 30 pounds lost! That TOM has almost passed so I may drop a few pounds this upcoming week... something to look forward to! What are the chances I'll resist that scale until next week?

Baylee... I'm so sorry about your friend. I can't help thinking about you saying that last night will be the loneliest night of her life. It brought tears to my eyes. My husband and I have been married almost 2 years and if that happened to me, I'd be lost. In December, it almost happened (when our car flipped three times on an icy road) and we held each other cried all night after being released from the hospital. The only thing between life and death for us was our seatbelts.

Baylee... I didn't know you lost your husband that way. I'm so sorry. Your friend's accident must have affected you in a very unique way. My thoughts are with you and I hope you were able to sleep last night.

Well, I'm expecting some company soon so I'll take off for now.

See you guys!
Sara

Exclamation Scared silly...

You know, dork that I am...I just HAD to go back and add more smilies to my post...guess i didn't learn my lesson yesterday...I must have miscounted how many I had, cuz I got the warning...as I was editing out a or two...WHHOOMP! The computer AND the AC shut down at the same time!! My first thought was I am NOT typing that again...then reality set in...[SIZE=HUGE]WHAT, NO AIR CONDITIONING??? AHHHHHHHHH!!!!![/size]

It wasn't a power failure...just the circuit breaker...WHEW!! And I didn't lose my post...it was already there...I was only editing....

So the moral of the story is......uh.....get a life, Kat....and leave the smilies alone!


but they're so cute!

Wow the power of begging...hummmm....maybe I should beg to John more often ehhh????

Hey have any of you ever made yogurt cheese? Sounds yukky huh? Well at my meeting sunday the leader talked about it and I tried it. It is not so bad! I took a quart? you know the big old container of plain fat free yogurt and dumped it in a collander lined with cheesecloth and set it over a bowl in the fridge over night. You won't believe all the liquid that comes out...and wal-la...you have a cream cheese like consistency. I measured out a 1/2 cup and mixed in some garlic salt and italian seasoning and spread it on some wasa crisps. Its kinda like a cream cheese spread. You can mix just about anything in if you want but it probably would definately need some salt. Next I am going to try and mash up some blueberries and sweetner in it and spread it on a bagel or lite toast. Its something I can live with for sure and a 1/2 cup is quite a bit! I even had to eat it off the spoon to finish it!

Baylee I need carbs to make me feel like I ate something. I try not to overdo it but have to have them. I losed 97 lbs eating them so I know if I control it it will work for me! I'm just an addict!



Hi Sara....thanks for posting!

Kat...I will wait for your call....if I don't hear from you I will leave here about 2:15 just incase you couldn't get through or something...if you don't show up after awhile then I will have to return home and plan to hunt your rear down!! I can't wait!!

Ok I am off to make the eggplant parm and make some order of this pig sty! I fell asleep on the couch this afternoon and when John called I could hear the phone but couldn't find it on the coffee table right beside me....I was in a coma!!

TTFN Michelle

Talking Busy.......busy.....busy

Hi everyone!! Boy, you guys have been busy. All that begging and pleading from Michelle must have worked! I am very excited that so far, so good (keep your fingers crossed) that the ol' computer is doing ok. The only thing that's wrong now is that my mouse is acting all funky and I have to beat and bang it occasionally to get it to work. Come to think of it, maybe that's what's wrong with it in the first place! Kat thinks her dh is bad........hmmmm. Listen to what my off the wall hubby suggested today. I was complaining because I was on the computer and he was laying on the bed behind me eating a big juicy cheeseburger. Anyways, I read him Baylee's post about her friend & how we should always appreciate each other and he leaned up to kiss me. After he did, I said, "Thanks alot onion breath." And here is what he said!!! "I've got an idea. After I eat the cheeseburger, I could kiss you. That way you could taste the cheeseburger without all the calories and I could get a smooch." What did I say to that? Nothing. I simply knocked him off the bed.

SaraJoy: Very nice to meet you. You came in, in the middle of my crash I think. You have chosen to join an incredibly wonderful family. These guys are the absolute best!! Glad to have you!
Good luck at WI today!

Baylee: How right you are, my friend. Sometimes I think we walk through life with this.............."It will never happen to me" attitude. But how silly it is to think that. You just never know from minute to minute.........from day to day. Each day is precious and we should always make the most of them. My prayers go out to your friend and the family.

Mary: Congrats on the new job lady! Having a new job myself, I can say it is just wonderful. I know you will be happy and if you ask me, they got the best end of the deal..............YOU!!

Michelle: How much I have missed you girl. Your attitude and personality just shine through in your posts. You always have the best ideas!! Let's make a pact: You and I will never ever leave again and we will fight this out together!!

Kat: You are the best girl! I don't know if anyone makes me laugh the way that you do!! I could almost picture you sitting naked at the computer! What a hoot! I am so jealous of you and Michelle. I wish I lived closer so we could all get together. Any chance you might be heading down towards Tennessee??

Lucky: Elvis is in town? Give him a big ol' fried banana smooch for me! I love him. Hope your having a good time with your friend.

Thin: Where are you? I miss you girl! Come out and play!

2cute: I'm baaaaaaaack!! I know your visiting, but come back soon. I can't wait to talk to you. I need to see that little elephant dancing soon!!

Malia: Where are you at sweetie? Enjoying that lovely island, I'll bet. I'll bet it is so beautiful there right now. You always paint such a pretty picture of your home and life with your posts.

For those that aren't here or that I've just missed.............Duckie, Theresa, Andria, Jen........come out and play! Post Post Post!!
Let's fill this page up by the end of the night and give 2cute a lot of reading material when she comes back home!!

Well, I'm out of here sweet girls. I am starving. I've only had 13 pts so far today and my stomach is not only growling, it is kicking me, saying, "FEED ME! I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!" Then, it is on to my two mile walk. Save a water bottle for me!!!
