hmmm... this may sound silly but what is orange pop? We have sunkist over here but from how you are all talking it seems like orange pop is a cross between sunkist and coke?

heidelene & AllAboutDieting!

heidelene: we currently have the Ekka on here in Brisbane (a festival show thingie with showbags and food and rides) and it is traditional to have a pluto pup at the Ekka. for those who dont know a pluto pup is like a battered sausage/frankfurt/weiner thing on a stick with tomato sauce (ketchup)...sooooooo good. Luckily i don't have time to go to the Ekka this year otherwise i'd be eating so many!
pork chops on a stick sounds a little bit worrying....

bjeweled: on staying OP and for having such a good weekend! i love WW mainly because you can still pretty much eat what you want (within points obviously) but they teach you more about portions and good fats vs bad fats etc. also, they make pretty yummy food! but i definitely find i need the meetings too, if i don't have the imminent weighing in session every thursday then i find i eat stuff i shouldn't.

Orange pop = Sunkist. Or Fanta. Or any other carbonated orange flavored bevorage. If I were from elsewhere in the US I might call it Orange Soda...or if you're in the South, every form of carbonated beverage is refered to as Coke. Sunkist is my fav, but I'm thinking of switching alliances to avoid the caffiene.

And a Pluto Pup sounds exactly like what we call a corn dog. They are sooooo yummy! I also like breakfast dogs, which are sausages dipped in pancake batter and fried.

As for Porkchop on a stick, it's not like a porkchop stuck on a dowel rod or anything...they just shave the meat from the bone in such a way that you can hold the porchop by the bone (as if it were a stick) and eat it like that. Rather barbaric, but good for when you're walking around the fairgrounds.

Question for you out in Oz/NZ - do you guys have Nutella? For some reason I thought Nutella came from that area. Just wondering if you knew if it was bad or good for you and how it tastes. I have an oportunity to get some from work but didn't know if it was worth it. Maybe I'm thinking of Vegimite??

hi all! vbs is over and i MADE IT! yeaaah! the scale has been slowwlllly creeping downward, but for some reason i've been feeling really insecure these days. like i just am constantly comparing myself to other people, blah blah blah, thinking that no one could ever like me cuz blah blah blah not as good as "girl over there"

the guy i'm diggin on has been hanging around a lot and its making me nervous! i dont know what to do! one part of me wants to make him go away so i dont have to feel all "butterfly"-y!

i know its bad, but i actually havent really been eating a lot.. i dont know, im just not eating as much as i used to, even though i'm trying to focus on eating small portions regularly... guys, i'm getting impatient!

Ghost—every time im super hungry I drink a glass of water and wait 20 minutes. If I am still hungry then I’ll have like reduced fat cold cuts or something, or a handful of almonds—but I get the almonds in individual packs so I don’t go nut crazy…

Bjeweled—mad props on the working out! I’m trying to stay active but I get sooo lazy and focused on day to day stuff…now that vbs is over I can go back to my dance classes!

Heidi—no worries on the “breaking down”! I try to look at the bigger picture because whenever I fail I end up focusing on it and think that I’ve failed when its like.. keep on going!

I LOVE Root Beer, I mean really love it.... but there are several really good diet root beers that satisfy me.
Speaking of international orange drinks have any of you been to the Coke Museum in Atlanta to see the Soda Fountain? I can't post a link but if you google Coke Museum Soda Fountain, you find pictures. It's a water engineering fountain where the "soda" shoots in an arc into your cup! So cool.
I actually, in all this discussion of soda, don't drink it! I love unsweet Iced Tea (it's a northern Midwestern-Scandinavian thing) so I will pick tea over soda anytime. I also know that the soda I DON'T drink can be calories I can have somewhere else LOL.

our Fanta doesn't have caffeine in it, only coca cola/pepsi does so strange lol

as for breakfast dogs - we have battered savs which are like giant frankfurts (hot dogs) in batter with salt... they are so yummy.

yes we do have nutella and vegemite here. nutella is a choc hazelnut spread which is pretty fattening and vegemite is a yeast based spread that tastes NOTHING like chocolate. It is like salty and stuff. it is very much an acquired taste - you either LOVE it or HATE it. it is pretty non-fattening and very good for you (lots of vitamins) but dont spread it on thick, you only need the tiniest tiniest bit on the knife otherwise its gross. i personally love it on toast or on crumpets or bread or pancakes (weird i know!). I think you are probably thinking of vegemite not nutella as vegemite is very australian. i would definitely try it, its great!

I know what you mean about being impatient! Its like "ok, im ready to be thin now!". I tried the water thing, but yesterday i had already had 3 bottles of water, so i was begining to feel blobby AND hungry i just have to plan better >.<

Hi girls!!!!

Sorry I haven't checked in in a while. It's been a busy week. School starts back in a week and a half and everyone is trying to register their child at the last minute. For some reason the forum always times out at work and shows up as a 504 error so I haven't been able to post when I wanted to.

I've been doing fairly well. Haven't been drinking as much water as I would have liked to and haven't been as "on plan" as I would've hoped but would still consider the smaller changes a move in the right direction.

Last week I almost had an aneurysm when I realized I had GAINED 12 lbs since school let out at the beginning of June so I was really scared to do a weigh in on Monday. I decided not to and ended up hopping on the scale today out of sheer curiosity and am down by 2 lbs.

Also, hopped on the treadmill for the first time since the middle of June as well! Man that was awesome!

The last couple days, I've been completely unmotivated to do anything. I couldnt walk last night due to rain, so I stayed in and didnt workout. I spent today doing some cleaning that I need to finish. Its been difficult getting back into the swing of life after my wonderful vacation. I hope to get a good walk in tonight if nothing else. Ugh....
