Default Thursday Chatters for March

Hi all,
Can you believe that it's already March.
Wow, we have St. Patty's Day and Easter this month.

I went dress shopping and actually found something that looked fabulous and was on sale!
Now, I must keep my weight under control so I can continue to fit into that dress.

How is everyone doing?????
Does anyone want to start a challenge for the month?

Hi everyone! I haven't had internet access for a few days, so I've missed you all!!!
Tina, that is great that you found a dress on sale even!!! lol to keeping the weight under control.

My scales are in the back of the van, but I feel like I have done very well controlling the food intake.

Disney World was so much fun! We did Epcot on Thursday, and then we went to the Magic Kingdom on Friday. The band looked great in the parade, and I was able to visit with quite a few of my former students while there. My nephew (a sophomore) wanted to know if I wanted to go hang out with he and the guys! lol He knew bob was headed back to the room, and he didn't want me to be by myself. Too funny!

Met with Bob's nieces last night. They are such wonderful people. I enjoy being around them. Today we were at his brother's house. There are 8-10 people living in the house depending on the week. Most of them smoke. I had a terrible time breathing after having the problems recently with the sinuses. Bob went back over tonight, and I stayed here at the hotel. Not very nice, am I?

I even left the house earlier today and met a woman northwest of Tampa who I chat with on 3FC about Fibromyalgia. I met her and her sister, and we went for lunch at a Greek restaurant. Yummy! I had never eaten Greek food before. The best part was, I didn't get lost!!!

My SIL couldn't believe that I was going to drive almost an hour by myself to a town I had never been to, and to meet people I didn't know. She has lived here in Tampa about a year, and she drives to the grocery, and that's about it.

Challenge for March? Get back to the Y at least 3 days a week once we get home. Start water aerobics again. Get my butterfly to move more in the right direction.

Evening,
Tammy, I'm so jealous that you met someone else from 3FC and not me!!! However, it's very neat that you could do that. The world seems to get smaller all the time, doesn't it!
It's funny what some people think about driving distances. It takes me 30-40 minutes to drive to my sister's house--across town. I'm used to it, too.
Glad you had fun at Disney.

Okay, my goal for the month is to eat all the fruits and veggies that we're supposed to eat every day. And I need to drink at least 4 glasses of water every single day.

Tina, we WILL meet some day!!! I agree about the world getting smaller.

You have good goals for the month!! I have been doing great with the water. Having bottled water with us all the time has really helped.

Tim and I are seriously thinking about coming back to Disney before he starts working for the summer. He gets out of school the last week of April/beginning of May, so we thought the next week or the week after that. I haven't mentioned it to Bob yet. I know he wouldn't want to come anyway.

Where is everyone???

Howdy,

I took Friday off and went to see my folks. It was GREAT!!! I really miss being away and it's hard to watch them aging.

I got to spend time with my older sister and her boys. Even got to go to a track meet in the town where Pat's folks live, so his mom came out. It's a very small town. His Dad is out of town and will be staying here sometime this week.

Today, I was walking to my room and now my knee is killing me. It's the one with the replacement. I'm hoping it's just because of the cold weather. Oh yea.... IT"S SNOWING HERE!!!! Yesterday it was 75. Only in Texas.

Tina, I'm going to be in Galveston the later part of July. Maybe we can then.

Tammy, I would have done the same thing about the smoke. It just kills me. Disney is so much fun!!! I've only been once but I would love to go again.

Amy is still sick. She was running a high fever and I think it finally broke. So maybe she will start getting better. She is already on antibiotics.

My goal this month is to be down 5 pounds and drink my water!!!!!!

Susan, so nice that you were able to go visit your parents and the other members of your family! Poor Amy! I always tell people that Mexican food cures everything!!

We left Tampa late this morning. We knew we would be driving into storms, and we thought we'd just stop whenever we couldn't see the road anymore. Smart move, huh? We are in Lake City, FL. We'll head out early in the morning. Not sure how far we will go. They are having an ice storm at home, so I'm not that excited about getting back there too soon. Tim will be home on Sat. for spring break, so we will be home by then for sure.

Susan, tell Amy we're pulling for her to get better soon.

Tammy, please be careful.

Dori, what's up with you????

I'm struggling a lot to say the least. The last two weeks have been very stressful and I have resorted to eating. I know that isn't good. I haven't weighed in for 2 weeks now. I'm thinking that I weigh in tonight and use that as my new starting weight. I'm really worried about developing Type II diabetes because I had gestational diabetes. I'm sure if I don't get a handle on it, it will lead to that. So I'm trying to decide if I need to try a diabetic diet. I really don't know.

Dori,
I'm so sorry you've been having stress. We don't need that stuff when we're trying to be healthy.
I don't know anything about the diabetic diet. Hopefully, you can incorporate some it with the WW one. I would think you could.....just count the points.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you are tomorrow!!!

Friends, our PC is having problems.
Larry says that the connection, in the back of the tower, where the DSL line connects isn't lit up. That means no internet connection.
I'm usiing his work pc at the moment.
So, if I'm not on for a couple of days, that's the reason.

Tammy, where are y'all now? I hope you stay safe on the road.
Susan, how are you? I hear your weather is worse than ours.

Hi,
Well it's snowed again today and we are suppose to get more tonight. I wonder if we will have school tomorrow? I kind of hope NOT and then I do so we don't have to make up the day.

My guinea pig is pregnant for sure and it should be any day now..... so who wants one when they are born???? I know you will give them a good home. Tammy, Tina.... you know you want one.

Dori, I worry about diabetes too. I have a very strong family history of it.... my dad, all my aunts and uncles, grandmother... so my chances are even greater.

Nothing new here!!!! Need to get back on track and drop some more pounds.

Tammy, are you almost home yet?

Tina, I hate having computer issues!

Guinea pigs????
I don't think so. I'm doing fine.
Susan, did you have today off? There were snow flurries as far south as Conroe. Our weathermen were so hoping we'd get some. Silly, silly guys.

We took our pc to the Geek Squad this morning. They're putting in a "card" that's supposed to cure the problem. We can get it this afternoon, although it'll be after Larry finishes work today.
I didn't know what to do with myself last night---no computer.
For some reason, his work computer will let me onto 3fatchicks but not my e-mail sight. Too many bozos at work were looking up porno sites during work!!! So, almost all sites are blocked now. Strange what grown people do at work.

Tammy are you home yet?
Dori, how is your day going?
Maureen, are you still lurking around reading? If so, post.

My eating is not good right now. I need to drink that water that I said was my March challenge.

Hello everyone!! We arrived home late yesterday afternoon. I have slept most of today. I am totally worn out. I'll get back on here later and read messages. I need to go finish balancing check books. Oh boy!

Hi,
We had about 4 inches of snow here, the roads werent' too bad. Pat and i met and we came home together last night. My district decided to open. I wasn't happy this morning but once we left and got on the roads they were fine. I am glad because we would have had to made them up in June. I certainly wouldn't want that!!!

Tina, it is sad what people will do on the computer while at work. A lot of sites are blocked at school. They are ones that you think "now why is this blocked?"

Tammy, glad you are home!! Get some rest now!

Dori, you did great on your food today. Wish mine was better.

Our computer is back and running. It just needed that new "card" put in. I know nothing about stuff like that.

This isn't a good eating day. I feel so stuffed and it's all my fault. Maybe when Larry starts working full days---on Monday----I can get back to more normalcy. He'll be working from home but I can try to be normal.

Dori, I like your menu. How was today?
Susan, I'm glad you and Pat were safe in that snowy weather.
Tammy, welcome home!!!!! Was the weather too bad for Tim to make it home?

How is everyone doing?????
