Default Feisty & Sexy 50 & 60 year olds#12

Thought I'd do the work this time.
I had forgotten that you all were talking about the Indian Casino's. We do go sometimes. We each take $20 and when it is gone we go home. I always joke that I should just find the first Indian in the place and just hand over my money. I'm not lucky at the slots!

Glenda Grandaughters are fun. They steal your heart with those coy little smiles. I think girls come fully loaded with all that stuff in them like a car. Also as so as my GD's have learned to walk they have been clumping around in my high heels.

Hope all of you make it to you WW meeting this week Empowering Beliefs is the topic . Very powerful those beleifs we have in our hearts and heads.

I think it must tbe the time of year. All of the meetings are down right now, But the Spring Diet season is upon us and the meeting rooms will fill up again.

Got to go Talk to you all later.

Talking Good Morning!

Karen, Thanks for starting the new thread. I went to my WW meeting on Monday and that was the topic. Fortunately I was down a WHOLE pound! I think I said last week I feel cheated when I lose in increments! Glenda, thanks for supporting me! I've promised myself - speak of empowering beliefs - that I am doing this for as long as it takes!

Minnesota Women's basketball team is going on to the Final Four in New Orleans!

It's nice to see spring making an appearance in chilly Minnesota. There is just a hint of color in the trees and it makes me hopeful that it WILL arrive!

Hope you all have great days!

Marnie

Ann: Your dream is a great one. I will be the supervisior. As Im not crafty Ill just drink coffee and push you others in to getting it done

Karen: I heard Line Dancing is really fun. Never tried it before. But alot of people talk about it and what a great work out it is to.

Slavika: That Norton Spam thing sounds pretty good. Not a bad deal either. Sounds like something to get. Good thing it gets rid of some of the pop up ads. I hate those. and it seems its getting worse and worse now to.

Glenda: Your Makenzie sounds so adorable. How old is she now?
Our Meetings at WW are all way down to.

Karen: Thats probably what I should do is just hand them my 20$ and leave I can last a while on it but Im not lucky either.

MArnie: You are doing great! You are losing and thats what counts! You will get there. It just takes time.

We had a lady enroll last night. All she could talk about was Atkins. The leader was going over the program with her and they had mentioned bread. She said I wont eat bread. I havent for a year why start now? She said I have been on Atkins for a year now and have only lost 85 pounds (nothing to sneeze at in my book)
I have 85 more to go and Im looking for something faster

well it doesnt work that way so we shall see how long she lasts

Night all!

Wink It's April Fool's Day (watch out!)

Morning, all.

I've opted to wear my old glasses to work today. I'm working with spreadsheets and the bifocals are making me dizzy.

I've been meaning to ask you all: do you get up frequently during the night to visit the "powder" room? I think it's every 2 hours for me. I can't remember when I slept through a whole night! I DO get right back to sleep though, but what a nuisance.

Hope there are no little s fooling you today.

Smile Lily....the supervisor

Hi Everybody

Trudy asked me to let you all know that her computer is very sick..... and her sil is going to fix it for her (he is very good at that) but it may take awhile as he is going out of town for a couple of days. She is not sure when she will be online again.
Ann what do you think??? Should we have Lily be our supervisor if we "open" shop? Doesn't sound to me like she will work very hard, but then maybe she is very GOOD at drinking and telling people what to do.
Marnie with your new glasses it's important that you move your EYES to find the reading part of the glasses not your HEAD. My DH had a bit of trouble with his progressive lenses when he first got them and that is what his eye doctor told him. He quickly got used to them once he started doing that. The doctor also told him not to be switching between his old glasses and his new ones, because it would just take him longer to adjust. Hope this helps you a little bit.
About running to the bathroom all night long....I certainly do that. I drink a large amount of water right up to the time I go to bed and also I am diabetic. I think that's a combination that ensures that anybody would be up and down like a tennis ball all night. I also "usually" manage to fall back to sleep each time. You are not alone.
I can't remember all that was on our last board but hello to you all. Talk to you soon.

Marnie: Yes I do get up alot at night. I tried to quit drinking anything after 7:30 PM but it still doesnt help.

Slavika: Trust me you dont want me making any crafty things unless its on the puter. Cuz if you do you wont sell nothing
Poor Trudy. Hope its nothing to serious and her SIL can fix it. Tell her hello! she is missed!

Back to work. Nothing exciting here

Marnie I got to tell you that you are normal. I'm up every 2 hours at least. I too am lucky enough to go right back to sleep. Most of the time. It doesn't mater when I quit drinking my water. If I don't have anything after 7:30 I'm up because I'm THIRSTY One way or the other I'm up.

Lily i get a lot of people like that. I've very bad when it comes to that kind of negitive pers. After about the 100th I can't or I wont or but.... I tell them If they want to lose weight They need to think positive and do the program as it is written not ther own version of the program. If they really want to lose weight they will find a way to make the program work. Sometime thoses people go away never to be seen again. But most time after my little talk they buy 10 at a time.

Slavika Tell Trudy we miss her. And I hope her puter gets well soon.

It's been a long day so see you all tomorrow.

Karen

I can't believe I am seeing snowflakes. It was so gorgeous last week and now the rain has turned to that white stuff. Doesn't it know it is April?

I also get up many times during the night. I really hate to when it is cold.

Ann what is this craft shop idea? Do you think we would be getting anything done? I see us sitting around and having tea time and gabbing. Of course since I would be the manager I could crack the whip. LOL

Marnie it takes a while to get used the glasses. I had a catastrophe yesterday-mine broke. I super glued the stem back on and have an apt April 20th with a new dr. He comes recomended and is up the street. Just hope they last that long. Yea on losing that pound. Slow and steady wins the race.

We have 3 casinos about 40 minutes away over the line in Indiana. We go about once a year if that often. We take about $20 and when its gone its time to go.

Lily it will interesting to see how long she lasts. Maybe she will see the light.

Well nothing real exciting is happening here. Got to go do some laundry.

Those people with the "yeah, but....." attitude just tear me up. We had a lady who was only happy if she lost 2 pounds every week. Before long she wasn't happy, of course. To set yourself up for that kind of failure is just so unrealistic. First of all, if you starve yourself to lose the 2 pounds a week, you won't last very long. And if you don't starve yourself, you rarely lose 2 pounds every single week. Catch 22.

All, I hope you know that OSU is in the Final 4. We have had such a fun week here in Stillwater. As I speak, I have on a new T-shirt emblazoned with the team's coach and numbers. We play Georgia Tech tomorrow at 5. And, if we win, my boss will be gone Monday and Tuesday. Keep your fingers we win! Ha, ha.

I have an eye appointment on Monday to get new glasses. I don't have glasses now, just contacts and my eyes get so tired at night, I end up planted in front of the tv if I really want to see. Cannot wait to get glasses too.

Regarding gambling: I do not understand the attraction at all. If I have money, I want SOMETHING for it. I so rarely have money, it is no problem at all.

WW rules! (or maybe I should just say "good sense rules"--same thing.)

Cool

Karen: Good for you on giving them the talk. This lady was unreal tho. She told the leader that she had to eat all day. The leader tried to tell her she could still do that, she just needed to find lower point foods and the fill up on Veggies etc. But all the lady could say was well I dont see how I can do that and get this weight off fast. I have 85 more pounds to go and I dont want it to take another year.

Peggy: Snowflakes??? Gee it suppose to be spring. Hummmm I see you are trying to steal my job.

Glenda: Hope the teams wins! Then you will have a boss free couple of days I wear Contracts to. But I do have glasses for night. Its great. Because my eyes do get tierd and I just want those contracts out when they do. You will be happy when you get them!

Yeah its almost the weekend!

Talking Ok....I see it will be all bosses and no workers....

Hi Everybody guess you all know now that Peggy wants to be the Manager of the new craft business in Florida and Lily wants to be the Supervisor (and drink coffee, mustn't forget that part of her job description). I can see where this venture headed.....hee hee nowhere, absolutely, nowhere!
Now gals...about gambling. I have to admit that I quite like to go to a casino every once in awhile but I too, limit myself to $20.00. DH and I have gone about twice in the last couple of years and I have gone with some gals a couple of times too. I actually won a little bit of money when I went with the girls.
I know what Maria's
DH does for a living and also Lily's and then Ann's DH is retired, but I don't know what Marnie's, Peggy's or Glenda's DH do for a living....or maybe they are retired. I know that Karen's DH
is or will soon be retired too.
I am not feeling too good today. I had a sore throat yesterday and pretty much lost my voice (YIKES...that was tragic). Today my voice is still not too good, my throat is really sore and I have a dry kind of cough.
Maria are still away?
Bye now gals.....

Cool

Sounds to me like we are going to have too many "Chiefs" and not enough "Indians" in our Florida dream adventure. That would certianly doom any business, so maybe we better just decide on 'teatime' at least twice a week.

Why is it that people can't accept the fact that it probably took 5 or 10 years to gain enough weight to have to lose 85 plus 85, and that it isn't going to come off fast. It has to be 'steady as she goes' to quote my Sea Captain husband.

We have had some sad days. Our friend who is so ill, had to go back to England, for the National Health. They didn't want to go, but the supplemental insurance wouldn't cover any long term treatment. And we know that unless God does a miracle, and I know that He could do it if it is in His plan of things, we probably won't see Graham again. It is sad, because they don't have a big support group over there. Their kids live quite a ways from the hospital, and work, and they had moved into a new village, and haven't had time to make new friends. Say a prayer for them. Carole and Graham

Marnie: I have new glasses too, and I am finding them harder to adjust to, since they are smaller lenses than I am used to, and the reading part is smaller. I have tri-focals, and the middle part if fine, but getting used to the position of the reading area is driving me nutty. I never had a problem before with steps, but now I have to be careful I couldn't wear the progressive lenses at all.

Slavika: I loved the info on Chernoble. What a sad situation there. Please say Hi to Trudy and hope she gets her puter all fixed up.

Glenda: I'm not into sports much, so did your team win? Hope you are going to have a 'bossless' couple of days. I agree that most little girls are just born with all the special little things that are girly. Except for the occaisional 'tomboy'. but sometimes I think the tomboys usually have older brothers that they have to keep up with.

Karen: When are you coming to Fl? Made any plans as yet? Keep me posted please.

Lily: I guess you and Peggy will have to fight it out for the 'boss lady/drink coffee position. Until then, I think we will just go for teatime. You know we would all have big gab-fests anyway, so we might as well do it over tea and goodies, or even a glass of wine now and again.

Peggy: Will you go for the 'teatime' solution? I'm sure that Marnie and I don't want to be the only workers in this 'company' so teatime it is.

Have to go to work and preview the video for our small group tonight. And make sure that things are in a reasonable state of cleanliness before everyone comes at 6:00p.m. I know I want to go to sleep early tonight. I hate the first few days after the time change. 'See' you later. Ann

Thumbs up Just saying "hi"

Morning - just dropping by to say hi. The glasses ARE a pain. Slavika, thanks for the encouragement, but it's really easy to revert back to my old prescription!

At WW yesterday I was down another whopping -.2!

Maria, sorry about the computer problems - they can be really frustrating!
