Default Time for SERIOUS FUN #8

Welcome to Time for SERIOUS FUN…..We are a group of people trying to lose weight together and help each other along the way. There is only one rule on this thread, and it is if you are not willing to help yourself along the way or help others on this thread we don’t want to hear you WHINE everyday, we like to keep a positive attitude. Some whining is expected, lol, we are only human. Other than that we love to talk about every subject under the sun. Please feel free to pull up a chair and a keyboard and join us on our journey. Every day of the week we have a little beginning to the day to start us off, for example…..Monday would be Mission Monday……you have some sort of mission to complete in your life for that day or longer totally up to you. Faye is in charge of what day it is and what we are doing, so look for her post if you are interested.

Hello everyone! We are having a heat wave here today. Supposedly getting up to 105° or some such madness! (Prolly more like the heat index will be that high). Let me say I am glad to be working in the AC. I also feel kinda glad that we are having this heat because it's better than the rain.

I think I am geeking out this year and trying to talk mom and dad into going on vacation with me. We'll see. It'd be nice to get out of PA for a while. And I just LOVE the beach.

Anyway what else..Oh...Faye...thanks so much for the advice, love and support. VERY stylin' hair cut BTW...Shirley would be proud. Your earrings are gorgeous too. You're gonna look great at the wedding! It's Saturday, right?
With these boys, I've been in this situation so long and it's just so status quo...it is a little bit that I'm afraid to be si ngle, mainly because I don't have any friends who are. My friend whooped it up in college, and are settled down now, but I had a boyfriend, since high school, and want to whoop it up now. My friend tells me that all the time, not to settle that is, and I don't want to. I know i'm just wasting both of our time his and mine and kee ping us from meeting the right person. I'm just so scared for some reason. And I wish I knew why. But I've instituted this break now and I'm gonna try really hard to stick to it. I swear! It's just so hard b/c I get bored and know I can call him to do something. Grr!

Anyway, enough about that. Thanks again Faye.

Well I heard back from my doctor regarding round 3 of blood tests...here's the jist of the convo:
Doc: Well it looks like you had a thyroid condition that...oh wait! that's not you, I have two people confused in my mind. Anyway, it looks like your thyroid is becoming hyperactive.
Me: Hyper? But that doesn't account for how I'm feeling.
Doc: Oh..I'ms orry, I meant HYPO, or underacitve.
Me *duh*
Doc: So what I'd like to do is monitor it since it's within normal range, but have you come back in 2 MONTHS FOR A FOLLOWUP to keep it under control.
Me: *grr*
Doc: So how about you come in tomorrow and we'll do a physical exam.

So basically I've spent $350 now on what insurance wouldn't cover, plus co-pays and such and I've got nothing to show for it.

Needless to say my mom is furious and we're trying to find a new doctor and possibly a specialist for endocrinology.

I'm so frustrated feeling so...blech...and at 25 years old no less. It's just hard showing all the symtoms of something and having them tell you Oh that's not what you have.

OK that's my gripe. how is everyone doing? seems like we've all faded out a little here. I hope our board isn't dying. I' know I've been slacking in the posting department and hope to make that up soon! Sorry!

Anyway, I hope you are all doing great! I love you sexy ladies!!!!

Talking Hey ladies!

Do you have room for one more? I post on another thread here in the Support Forum (300+ And Ready To Try Again) and it's the only one I have ever posted on and thought I would expand my horizons a little and try new things and you ladies seem to be just the thing!

I haven't read all the threads yet, but you seem to have a really positive flo here and a good kick in the butt when people need it, but most importantly, you seem to have a lot of fun and I am ALL for having fun. I am also happy to say that I know several people on this thread and am happy to be in such good company.

My name is Tina. I am 33 years old. I have been married for almost 16 years and I have two sons. Brian (14) and Trey (10). I have been trying to lose weight most of my life and have been mostly successful the last two years, but I have reached a stagnant point and I need some inspiration! I like to read, write, spend time with my family and oh yeah.........NASCAR! Yes, I love it, especially one driver in particular, although I will try to not post his picture in here too much.

Have a wonderful day ladies. I feel a new day dawning for me!

I am on the WW plan and even though I have lost my way as of late, I have now been OP for 5 straight days and have exercised four!

So nice to meet you all and happy to see the ones I already know. I am ready to get with it.

Evening ladies!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome Tina!!!!!!!!!!!!! I like the way that you have your name, it's really neat.

Faye, the haircut is really cute. Wish that I was brave enogh to cut mine that short. I have a pic that I was trying to post but it is too big any ideas?

Girl, don't never settle when it comes to a realtionship. I am a firm beliver in sticking to your guns and holding your ground. As a result I have a hard time of holding my tongue at times but oh well that is the way that I am and I figure that they can take me or leave me.

The soon to be ex officals moves out the first and I am so ready for this to happen. There are times that I am a little sad, but for the most part I am relieved and happy. The more that I sat down and thought the more that I realized that we(my son included) are going to be much better off with out him around. Here's some good news, I am getting closer to one of my mini goals. Wed was weigh in day and I am down to 182 and at 180 I am treating myself to highlights. Time to run. Good night everyone!

sandy

I went out tonight to Bingo with my mom, I lost!!! But oh well, I had fun just hte same.

Tina baby, where you been all my life??? Calm down girls, I'be been posting with Tina for months now. You are more than welcome here, the more the merrier, and you are doing so good right now maybe you can kick me in the butt and get me going too. So pull up the keybooard anytime and give us a holler. We're all here for you!! By the way on this thread they call me Peek cause there is another Sandy.

Faye: I know your gone, hope you are driving safely and enjoying the book on tape. I got to get back into that.

Sandy: Congrats on the 2 lb loss. I'm glad that you have thought about your situation and realized that you and your son will be better in the end. Sometimes life just isn't fair, but you have to do what you know is right. I wish you all the luck in the world.

Missy: How's it going on the boyfriend gigs? Come on now, do tell, you know I am living life vocariously through you....just kidding, I would not trade what I have here. Hugs to you girl.

Jana: Where did you go? I started the new thread for you so you would not get lost in cyber space posting land.

Lori: Did you miss my post to you? I asked if you had any pictures of you and Brian together? Glad you got your TOM, I mean to start a relationship that way wouldnt be the best. I am assuming you feel the same, since you have only met one time in person right? Okay, yes I'm the nosey one....lol.

Okay girls, gotta scoot on outa here and get my butt to bed and give hubby some needed attention.......god they tend to get grumpy when you neglect them a bit.

Tootles,
Peek

Morning everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peek I wish that I could have been there with you playing bingo. I love to play but don't get to play often. The last time that I went I done fairly well, much better on the pull tabs though. Ended up 250 to the good.


Just checking in rather quickly this morning. I have to jump in the shower and get my son ready for his summer rec program. I have to meet a friend at 9 this morning to walk. I would much rather go to the gym but she hates to go there she feels like everyone is looking at her. So as a result she doesn't exercise often and if I can find her willing to go to the parka nd walk I will gladly change my plans so that I have a chance to walk with her and help support her. I'll check back in later.

sandy

Hi ladies,

I have hurt my back and can't sit at the computer for long periods at a time. Please go ahead and adjust the thread lenghths to whatever works for the rest of the crowd, because by the time I check in with my old threads, the pain is fairly intense and it's time to quit.

BTW - I am fast approaching another mini-goal and will be picking out a little bauble for myself as a reward today. I just LOVE WW!!

Be good and stay OP....
Jana

Hi everyone!

Been pretty quiet here..

TINAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! You found us, bless your heart! Stick around; this is a great thread and you can certainly influence us a time or two once in a while. Congrats on staying OP!

Peek: Arrgh...I wish I did have some pics of us together, but they didn't come out very well. Once we do get together again, and I figure out how to use my flaky scanner right, I hope to get some up. And I agree, prego scare is no good way to start off the relationship, though I wonder I Bri would have minded anyway; nevertheless, I am relieved things worked out as they did.

Today is finally less humid, and I am planning to take a long walk later; once TOM finally passes and I get rid of the little fluid retention I usually get with it, I will weigh and measure myself to see how I am progressing.

Default Good morning ladies!

I'm here at work and thought I would pop in real quick. I read something on my good morning fax and thought I would share it with you. Please excuse if you've already read it before

Quote:
"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down."
I don't know....for some reason, when I read that....I could almost feel the inspiration! VERY nice!

Peek: Soo happy to be over here with you. You know I love you lots and am not afraid to give you a good swift kick when you need it. I also expect the same from you...(although...it will take me awhile to get used to calling you Peek)

Lori: I always love it when TOM goes away because it will usually take a few pounds with it! I too would like some pics with you and Bri together. Bet you make a cute couple.

Sandy: That's so nice of you to walk with your friend like that. I kinda feel the same way about the gym too, so I totally understand that. Good for you for being such a supportive friend.

Jana: Nice to meet you and sorry you hurt your back. Congrats on almost meeting your mini goal. I think it really feels good when we meet our goals.

Well, I think I will hop off here for now and wish you ladies a wonderful day and I will see you later! I know I'm new around here, but it seems like a real nice place.

Default Can I play?

Hey Boys and Girls, Can I join you all? I need to lose 68 pounds to reach my goal.

To give you a little background about myself - I lost about 40 pounds or so a couple of years ago (I was an active poster on 3FC) and then I got married and sorta stopped losing weight... anyway, I know that these forums played a HUGE role in my weight loss because as soon as I stopped coming, I stopped losing. I'm trying to get back into the game and shed this much hated chub.

I promise I won't whine. Too much.

So, can I join? Can I be cool like you guys?


Please??

Lori, time to figure the scanner out so that we can all take a peek at ya'll. I had a pic to post but nonetheless it said that mine was too big. Go figure. I wish that I could make it smaller but I an technology challenged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jana. so sorry to hear about the back I hope that you are feeling much better soon. We will miss you bunches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats on getting to the reward point.

Gotta get a start on the day. Here's to an OP weekend!

Hey check out the new chicks!!!!

Welcome to time for Serious Fun Angie and Gracenote. Please feel free to jump right in, the more the merrier.

Angie: I love the comment about the thigh, I can relate, although I have never been small, I think my thigh is the size of some peoples waists....god I hate that .

Grace: 2 boys....wow are you brave...lol, I have one that is 11 and he is so moody lately, I just don't know what to do with him, for some reason he thinks I and his dad were put on this earth to deliver his every whim....take me, buy me, get me, can we.....Oh he wares me out. I also have a 5 year old girl who is going on 16....ughhhhhh...but I love em both dearly and woulnt trade them for the world.

I just got done making my mom and dad a batch of cupcakes, I forgot their anniversary!! Shame on me... And my brother in law is having his brand spanking new lobster boat put in the water today so party there, and I had to make a potato salad, I made it with 10lbs of taters....think thats enough I was peeling potatoes it seemed forever.

So chicks I gotta run, but I will be back tonight.

PEEK
