We're at our best when we're off topic, Mauvais.

Me too, Lidian... this is the only place where I'm sociable.

My oldest friend is coming over today with her 18 month old. I'm tossing and turning... do I bother cleaning, or I do I just wait until after the kid's totaled my house...
After, I think. Maybe just take the garbage out and move the sharp knives...
And my stereo remote. He seems to enjoy chewing on remotes...
What I really need is one of those cattle prods. Everytime he moves towards something he shouldn't... ZAP!!!

Definitely wait until after! Your friend will think your house as it is, is sparkling - cuz she has that 18 month old redecorating HER house 24/7!

Now it is our 2 cats who do the redecorating around here - arrangements of grey cat hair placed in various locations & of course the trendy 'shredded' texturizing of the upholstered furniture (on one couch, the silver duct tape which covers the first bout of shredding is also shredded!)

Sounds very attractive, Lidian.

He only spilled water on the hardwood and broke one special china cup. Coated with silver.
A stressful time was had by all. Next time I'm going to THEIR house!!

I can't get to the Post Reply, so you will have to imagine the little laughing face!

That was too bad about your lovely-sounding cup, Ellis - there was a toddler closely related to me (she still lives here in fact) who broke the much-loved owl-shaped incense burner given to me by my favourite grandmother in the 1970s. I think she was tossing a toy around. Still remember that!

Sorry, Mauvais - it WAS the Starting Over thread, you say? If I eat any chocolate mints tomorrow (or toast tonight) I WILL have to start over, I guess! Only so much sugarless jello a person can eat, after all.

Good grief, Lidian! You mean you have to go to the Post Reply to get a smiley? Okay look... it's : plus ) equals . And that one is a : plus a D . Huh. And I thought you knew EVERYTHING!

I'm so sorry about your incense burner. It's like losing a child (well, not really, but you know what I mean). Funny how that's the sort of memory we take to our death bed...
I broke a few things as a child, and Mom still reminds me of them on occasion.


Okay, Mauvais... on topic...

I am starting Phase Two of the South Beach today. I was going to stay on Phase One for another week, but I'm bored to the point of cheating (see "large sausage roll" in "Pigs"), so I'm going to switch today. And will probably go back to Phase One for a week in a while. I'm stuck at this 5.5 pound loss (which is GREAT!... don't get me wrong!), but I don't want to screw it up and gain it back through stupidity (which is how I GOT this fat in the first place!)

Yup! I guess I am starting over too

I read some old posts and came across one where I weighed in at 156lbs - that was about 6 lbs away from my goal and I weighed in at 173.5lbs when I signed up for WW again a few weeks ago. what happened to me over the winter????

I could just cry when I see how close I was So back to the drawing board. So far I have lost 6.5lbs - not a bad start on the road to sveltedom

Lol, Mauv - I just signed up for WW again myself. Hopefully the group-inspiration will help me, too!

Thanks Ellis -- most days I hardly know anything actually! I have seen the parentheses/colon thingies for ages but never actually Made the Conection that I could do it too! A genuine Oprah moment! (there, that feels great!)

Yeah, I am gonna remember that incense burner when I am 85 and can't remember my phone number or anything...but I am trying to move on! I do have another incense burner for instance (a pot with sand in it, to put incense sticks in - the old lamented burner was for cones)

How's Phase 2 going, Ellis? 5.5 lbs is GREAT you know!
And Mauvais! You have lost 6.5 in no time! And you must be toning up a lot - all the exercise you are doing (I wish I was as dedicated)

Thanks, Lidian. First day on Phase Two. I had porridge for breakfast with some walnuts and cinnamon... yummy!
And an apple.
And a low-fat yogurt fruit freezie.
Plus the usual stuff. It's nice to have a bit more variety. Hopefully the scale won't take a leap.

I have a fat brass buddha in our downstairs bathroom for incense. Actually, I have a burner in almost every room in the house. I used to HATE incense, but now I love it. It conceals many odors...

I've got a rosemary/peppermint one that is WICKED! And Ruth gave me some lavender incense that is divine.
