Morning Chickies,

pts for yesterday: 1 for water. 1 pt for exercise (did the 2 miles on the 3 mile watp tape, whew what a difference, it is much faster pace than the 2 mile tape, but I am going to keep on keeping on. Not giving myself program pts for yesterday.... I stayed within calorie range and fat grams (shocker), but I had a cheesburger and fries....it was delicious...but immediately afterwards I started beating myself up. (dont need to do that!!), I have only had 3 burgers since I started this thing, and that was the first one from fast food place... (ugh!) other I cooked on the George Foreman grill..but nonetheless, I indulged and today is another day girlies.

Getting ready for work, but did have to confess and speak to Faye. I WILL BE ROOTING FOR YOU GIRL!! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU FOR DOING THIS, YOU ARE AMAZING, AND I LOVE YOU!!! CANT WAIT TO SEE THE PICTURE OF YOU AT THAT FINISH LINE!!

All the rest of you gals have a great day!

Yeaaaaaaaaah Faye! - I expect you are finished now (I don't know the time in the US). Well done! Let us know how it went.

Thanks for the menu's - I'll print them off and have a good look at them later. One question - when it says 100/20, does that mean 20 calories of fat or 20% fat?. I'm going to have to adapt them a bit as I'm a vegetarian and some of the foods we don't get in the UK - but it's a really good base to start from and get some good ideas.

Well, I've had an eventful morning - I had to go to the doctor at 8.30am as I've got an inflammation of my eye called Iritis. The doctor wasn't sure what to do so she sent me to see the consultant opthalmologist at the hospital. I've had it before and it's quite painful, but they don't know why it occurs. I've got to take steroid eyedrops for the next 5 weeks. The really good thing was that I had lots of waiting around to do and I didn't give in and have a smoke!. My chest has been really sore today - I think it's clearing out some of the toxins and opening up my airways again, which is good - although I started coughing and it was really painful and I was sick! Oh, the joys of giving up smoking - I deserve everything I get for being stupid enough to start in the first place!

I'm looking forward to re-structuring my diet - I've ordered a book which lists the calorie/fat/carb content of all foods, which will be really helpful. I'm feeling positive about making a completely fresh start - it's just what I need!

I got 1 point yesterday - must do better!

Amanda xxxx

POINTS POINTS POINTS POINT!

Great job everyone!

Amanda: The first number is the calories and the second number if the number of fat calories NOT the percentage of fat calories, like for the WW dinners I said 400/80 that is 400 calories and 80 calories of that is fat.

I DID IT I DID IT I DID IT! I was even two minutes faster than my fastest time for walking 3 miles! The race started 45 minutes late and by the time I got to the finish line, I was almost dead last, but I could have cared less!

Ok, here goes the pictures. I don't know how to put multiple ones on one post so I will have to post them separately.

My daughter and I before the race started. She was SO wonderful and supportive and squeezed my hand, ask me if I was ready and told me "I am proud of you." Right before the gun went off.

This was as I crossed the finish line. My daughter was just a little ahead of me and Jack shot this pic. I was sobbing so hard and the people I know thought I was nuts. I was one of the last ones to cross the finish line, but I didn't care because I DID IT!!

POINTS WRAPUP:

Dorothy:

Dorothy: You talked about beautiful, but dh and dd were teasing me because I was one of the few women with jewelry and full makeup on! I even color coordinated my earrings and fanny pack to match the purple in the shirt!!!! Jack said, "You matched your earrings and stuff to your shirt, didn't you?" I told him yes and he laughed and said "I should have guessed you wouldn't go out without being perfect. Doesn't matter if you are going to be sweaty or not."

On to Sunday girlies!

Faye

SUNDAY: Today is Silly Poll Sunday. Today's silly poll is:


NOW, WE ARE ALL DRESSED IN A MASCOT COSTUME OF SOME SORT, DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER IT IS SPORTS TEAMS, COLLEGE, WHATEVER. THE POINT IS NO ONE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE AT ALL.

THE POLL: WHAT OUTRAGEOUS THING WOULD YOU DO IF ANY, KNOWING NO ONE WOULD EVER FIND OUT IT WAS YOU?!

You know this poll thing, gets hard when you have done it awhile. I have to think of things to "poll."

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME: MAKE SURE YOU ROLLED BACK THE CLOCK FOR THAT EXTRA HOUR OF SLEEP!

My answer to the poll is I would probably find the most gorgeous man and flirt outrageously with him, sit on his lap, etc.

Well, I need to work on my grocery list and to do that I have to go through the next two weeks menus so I need to get to it even though it is early.
