TIME FOR SERIOUS FUN #12


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.

FRIDAY: Fabulous down the LBS Friday! If you have a loss, let's hear about so we can cheer you on!


Faye YOU GET A: for points ( water, exercise). I have a one weeks loss of 5 lbs.

Hope you are having a great day! I am really tired, but from time to time it seems I have this weird kind of insomnia that is menopause related where I dose and wake and dose and wake all night long. I would be better off staying up all night. Boy did I go over fat last night! I was trying to figure up my stuff and came out ok with me cal but the fat kicked me in the butt! I was afraid of that, but today is another day and I will get out in that pool and work it off again.

I got a free 2 night stay at one of the casino hotels! Actually what it was for is my birthday so dh and I are going to go down there for the weekend the end of August. It is a really nice hotel. We have stayed there several times before, but it is so much nicer when it is FREE! I also got a coupon for $15 in cash as a gift. That will take about 3 minutes to be sucked down the slot machine!

Check in later lovelies, I am going back to bed!

Faye

Angry Morning and Hello!

Hi all! I am so excited this morning, I have this pair of low rider jeans that I used to wear last summer and I have not even been able to button them for like the past 8-10 months, and this morning I thought "ah what the ****" so I put them on and not only did they fit but they were actually a little loose, I ran in to show my husband - he really didnt care at 6:15am - so I will show him in the evening
As far as pounds go I am 16 down from a month and a half ago and am 1 pound into Faye's challenge, need 9 more by 8/31
For points yesterday, I get 3...I was on program, and drank all my water, no exercise though, I tend to just exercise everyother day for now...I rotate treadmill and the Walk Away the Pounds DVD.

Congrats Faye! Very impressive, down 5 pds this week!!

Congrats to everyone else too who are staying OP and working
our butts off ( literally ), keep it up

Later, Carri SW 246 CW 223 GW 130

OK good morning and congratulations to all you girls out there!!!! Your losses are just awesome.

I get all my points for yesterday for staying unde 1300 cal, exercise and water. However I have some bad news to report. Seems that the scale is holding steady. The gym scale (the "real" scale) says I'm at 153...when at home I'm usually at 148-149. So...I'm holding steady if not gaining a pound. I know that is probably a result of the weight training at teh gym...but it is a little disheartening. However, I've only been doing my 1300 cal program for two days (today is #3) and it takes time. I am going to really buckle down this weekend and be good.

Some good news...I may be going to the shore next weekend as my friend's godmother has a house at some shore point...so FREE weekend! YES! LOL

Anyway, again, Faye, Carri, Debbie and the rest on your losses. I am very proud of you ladies!

Debbie - As we are the same weight and height (except you are a few lbs. lighter) I was wondering ifyou could spill the secrets of your diet plan..or eating plan as it may be. I'm trying to stay under 1300 cal...how about you? Any good foods to recommend and/or tips?

OK talk to you in a few!

Love,
Missy

Well, laid back down, did the same thing and now feel like crap! I crack myself up. When I sleep I dream about CLEANING and cooking food! No kidding! My sisters were in my house (some other one because there was sand all on the floor) and they kept messing up the sweeping I was doing. Then in another dream I was trying to make zabalone (can't spell it let alone make it!) and I had made a mess of the kitchen trying to make this stuff and my sister (she was being a pest in my dreams!) was bugging me about her grandson and what he had done in the doctor's office and I cut myself on the electric can opener (what the H did I need a can opener for that is an Italian custard dessert?) and got mad because my kitchen was still a mess and I couldn't get the custard to set up right!

NOW ONTO REAL LIFE!!!!

Carri: YOU GET A: for our points and a for how great you are doing now!

Missy: YOU GET A: for all your points yesterday and a big for working so hard!

Honey:YOU GET A: for all your points and a for kicking butt!

Pam: YOU GET A: for points and a big for working so very hard at this.

Ok, into the pool I go with the boob falling suit, so wish me luck!

Peek: We are waiting for your happy little face this am!

Grats Faye on the 5 pounds, and Satine on the pants! doesn't that feel SO good? Awesome on the 2 Honeyrose, and for Missy on maintaining, don't you hate other scales sometimes? I would ignore the gym scale and stick to the one at home that you have been using


I get 1 for water yesterday, and 1 for excercise, and only 1 for OP... I ate a rice crispie treat which put me 2 points over my WW points =P

so I guess that's 3, still good

I weighed yesterday, and I am 4 from goal, which I have hit many many times, then get back up to being like 7 from goal. So my goal this weekend is to either STAY at 124, or get to 123 or 122, but not get over 124. I am going to be good damnit!

So fabulous friday, well it's HOT HOT HOT here... it was 102 yesterday, and it will probably be that today, and dry dry dry. But anyhow, I wore a cute little skirt, and a tight black shirt that laces up at the bust... so I feel like I am having a cute day, and since it's fabulous friday, it sorta fits to tell about it I also got a new ankle bracelet a week ago, and I wore that with my skirt, and it shows off my dragonfly tatoo on my ankle nicely.. hehe. I got this tattoo 2 yrs ago, and never would show it off because I refused to wear shorts or skirts when I was heavier, dumb I know. But now, I am in this skirt, liking the way it looks, so TGIF! =)

Hello again. Good afternoon!

Missy, what seems to be working for me is a combo of several things. I put on weight because I am inactive. So, I now walk walk walk every day. I try to keep my goal reasonable and walk at least a mile.. but I have been keeping right at 2 miles. Hopefully once I build a little endurance I can start my taebo tapes (after I knock 6 inches of dust off of them heehee).

As far as food.. I am slim fasting in the morning as I am not a morning eater. Depending on my appetite at lunchtime, I either have another slim fast, a lean cuisine, or a salad with 'light done right' dressing. For dinner, I usually stick with healthy things. Boneless skinless chicken (small portion usually grilled), fish, brown rice, fresh veggies steamed, whole grain pastas if I have to have pasta. Desserts (when I do have dessert) consist of fresh fruit sometimes with nonfat coolwhip or yogurt as a topping. I also love wheat germ sprinkled on it. I hate starving myself and I refuse to do it. I have found if I just have a very small portion of something I really really want.. that I do not feel so denied. If I feel denied I get frustrated, I give up and I binge. So I avoid denying myself and usually a few bites is enough to keep me satisfied. I just try to compensate by walking a little more, or adjusting my calories by only having a large salad for dinner.. etc. My problem is with nighttime eating. I keep carrot sticks, celery and other fresh fruits and veggies already prepared for snacking. I also do most of my water after noontime. I have my own personal goal to drink 100 ounces of water per day.

So far its been working for me. I plan on trying some of those new slimfast desserts because I have a horrible sweet tooth. I figure a few times a week wouldnt be too much.

I also avoid caffeine. I am not a coffee drinker but my weakness is soda. I only allow myself 2 cans of diet coke per day.

I stick with whole grain breads.. and very little of them. I also avoid lots of starchy foods like potatoes. I avoid mayo, butter, etc and replace with nonfat mayo - kraft makes a decent one, and spray kind of I cant believe its not butter. Avoid fried foods.

Jeez I have written a book! Sorry to those who are bored

Hello...this is my first time to post, but I have been lurking for almost a year. A little shy I guess you could say. Anyways about me, I am 27 soon to be 28 and the very proud mother of 2 boys. I am not sure about what I weigh, but the last time I went to the Dr it was about 180 and I am 5'5. So I am not real sure about a goal weight, but I think that it may be around 150, I just basically judge by how my clothes fit.

I guess that is enough for now

We welcome BEAUTIFUL Bella to our group of go getters! It is wonderful to have you here and by the time you are here awhile, you might not be so shy! We will drag it right out of you!

Tonya: YOU GET A: for points yeserday! I laughed at the ankle bracelet thing thinking about having to put a full size wrist bracelet on these chubby ankles (though I have lost considerable weight in my feet and ankles and bulked up my calves exercising) You strut your stuff honey and we can't wait to hear you are at goal! We will have a party!

Pam: Hey, dance away! I haul this big ole butt around buck naked in the house half the time.

Debbie: We AIN'T bored. We want to hear about everything about everybody! Especially things that work for you.

You guys should see my cat. He came up here crying for some attention so I cratched and petted him and now he is lying on the desk upside down staring at me and watching me type. He nudges me time to time to get my attention.

Got in the pool workout and am itching so gotta get a shower!

awwww cute little kitty! hehe , I love cats, my old cat used to always sit on my lap as soon as I took a seat anywhere, she would hurry and curl up there. I miss that kitty!

Faye, I have always had skinny ankles.. I gain weight in my back, stomach, BUTT/THIGHS! , and breasts. And my lower leg is always thin..I think it looks incredibly funny I am currently trying to make my lower legs BIGGER by working them out, while thinning out the top part. Ahhh when I was 16 years old, I danced, and I had great legs, why can't they just magicly come back?
