jules: I had the blueberry oatmeal this morning and it was still deeelish. I don't know your level of sweetness so you may think it's too sweet. I love blue berry muffins and it smells and tastes like i'm eating one. Have fun on your trip!

Losing4another: Thanks for letting me know I really thought you had to weigh infront of everyone. but still I think it's amazing you go to the meetings. And as far as the sticker goes....I think it's the best thing ever! I would love it if the bf game me a sticker for every loss i had, I like ones with alot of glitter


Lori: I hope your Son had a great birthday. I do agree with thundah, you do seem young which is a very good thing. I'm sure your hubby will love is V-day present


thundah: Thanks for the tip on the full bars. I've seen the commercials and have always been curious. If they aren't too expensive i'll get some. It will help for my late classes so I don't just start snacking. So i'm trying to get my cardio up and workout like you do, which you must be in some awesome shape because 30min of cardio for me and i'm dying! everytime i think of quiting i think of you and that motivates me to keep going. I'll see if i can do maybe 60min tomorrow. Your amazing!


I'm trying to work up my workout routine. I've been able to do 30min atleast 3 times a week. I finially am getting fast enough where I can fit 3.14miles into 30min, but that's me panting and looking like crazy person in a pool of sweat at the gym. tomorrow I will see if I can do 60min. I still have to try and do some type of strength training but one thing at a time. I see the weight come to a halt and that's ok because I'm gaining muscle...love my muscle...I'm just under 5"4 and I want to be able to get little guns like kelly Ripa...hehe. good luck to everyone and thanks for all the love and support. today is my late classes, Have a great day.

Lori - I hope you feel better soon. I find sometimes I get into a downward spiral of tiredness and stress and it's so hard to get out of. Hopefully you'll be back to your normal cheery (oops, I typo'd cherry!) self very soon.

JD - hmm, that oatmeal may be a bit sweet for me. Don't get me wrong - I love sweets! - but somehow, sweet cereal doesn't do it for me. I may try it and see though - always open to new things.

Thundah - you are too funny. I live in Vegas - well, Henderson, actually - but I'm currently in Reno at a client site. So I go from one gambling mecca to another... much smaller one. Walking the Strip is definitely good exercise - people always underestimate how far it is from one casino to another. And dodging tourists just adds to the fun!

So, I just have to very highly commend my city's parks and rec director. Remember my major whine about the new pool facility not opening until 7am? I think I posted about that... can't remember now. Anyway, in my whining state, I emailed the Parks & Rec director and told her how much I had been looking forward to swimming and how disappointed I was that all the other pools open at 5am, etc etc. She emailed me back today - first brownie point there for her even bothering. And said she called the facility director and asked if there was any budgetary room to open the pool at 5am. And there is! Starting Feb 8, the pool will be open 5am - 8pm Mon-Fri, just like all the other pools, and will continue as long as there are sufficient funds in the budget to do so. So I emailed her back and thanked her profusely for taking the time - she is the director of the whole shebang after all so I know she has to be busy - and said I will contribute in my own small way by paying my entrance fees to use the facility! I was so impressed that she took the trouble to address my email - how often does that happen with local governments? So now I have to squeeze my fat bum into a Speedo and go use the pool!

Jdon- Well what about little gold five pound stickers?...They are kind of shiny Thanks I love to go and whine with other ladies about how much trying to lose weight bites...and not the good kind of bite either Hey thats what I do here too I must be really good at it!

thund- Your too funny!!!! Yeah my dh is a pervert too! I think they all are..men I'm a valentines nut I love all the little I love you's items I see everywhere. Most of it is for women and girls so it's hard to find something your hubby will not half smile at and think to himself oh great pink and dark red underwear then down deep into the dresser they go. never ever to be seen again..Yes this is a true story I'm the only one that sees them geezeee honey

woohoo on the weight loss ...My scale was nice to me this morning too! Down one pound

Lori- I'm sorry Dan is the baby right? It's the middle boy that had the b-day... Bud right? well sorry Bud

Wow you always find so many things. You must have an awesome thrift store. I never get that lucky to find more than a few things I need or want. I kind of gave up and have been hitting the outlet stores....Very good prices there. All the spring stuff is coming out so that means clearance to make room for the new stuff. Although here in florida it's when the spring and summer stuff goes on sale that we get all the good deals. Still fun to look

Good idea for DH....I think he will like that last thing the best My dh actually does like the cards....not sure on the chocolate though...hes more of a peanutbutter & chocolate kind of guy. Maybe I will make him a cake...or buy one sounds good too

Time for me to try to get some sleep....although I think it's way overrated

I'm having a down and emotional day. I'm right before my TOM, stressed with school and just feeling blue about my weightloss/management. I've been doing cardio and keeping active at least 3 days a week and taking in around 1500 calories on the days i workout. Normally 30min, 3 days a week, over 3miles around 274 calories burned, not including what i walk around school. But i feel like inorder to lose this last little bit, and i mean fat too, i look like i weigh 20lbs more in my gut, i'd have to run for 60min, 30min of weights, and 60min of yoga every day and only take in 1000calories. But seriously I will never be able to workout like that and for my body I know I need 1200 to 1500 depending on my activity level. I will never starve myself and I'm just getting frustrated. I feel good endurance wise, but i'm still trying to overcome emotional ones. I still think of myself at 142 and haven't emotionally healed from it. I took a while to get over going from 160 to 142 and I did that, now it's the emotional struggle of worrying about gaining it back again, being scared to wear things thinking i won't fit into them..which I know it's silly...

I just want to lose the excess fat in my stomach and i'm just getting impatient. I know this may seem silly for me to complain about all of this, I'm sorry. I'm an emotional eater, part of why i gained in the first place. While i was running today I don't know what came over me but I started to break down into tears, just all came out. I feel like how much do have to exercise and take in inorder to see physical results in the places I want to. they say you have to lose weight everywhere else first before you get where the last place you want it.......*sigh*...I don't know, I guess it's going to take a while...i keep telling myself it's a life style not month or week style.

today I took thundah's advice and got a few fullbars to help between meals during school. I get home late most nights and because stress and not being able to eat a decent meal during class I snack on lots of crap, so i'm trying to find ways to help. We will see if it works. Oh and the bf's breakline went on his car so we are down to one car now and he's stressed and trying to figure out schedules...ok i'm done rambling for now...sorry and thanks for reading. hope you all have a great day.

Jdon- We all have our emotional days. It's helps a lot to be able to vent here. I know I can relate to almost all the posts here.

Lori- Stay safe darn wrong again...I knew it was something like Bud...Chris Jr will be easier to remember I was always stressed about the science projects too. We had a year off last year ..DD wasn't in a public school and their not as important. She had uniforms though and it's so much better not having to worry about those with being back in public this year.

Speaking of DD I decided to get her a cell phone on my plan I sure hope she doesn't run that bill up. We will be saving 5 bucks a month with not having to refill her prepaid phone. The problem with that one is the minutes go so fast no matter who she talks to. With the new one she can always talk to myself and dh no matter how many minutes remaining. The con would be when the minutes are gone the bill still keeps climbing...with the prepaid the minutes are gone and thats it. Shes 14 by the way and geezee do they love to talk. What did I do?

Hope everyone has a great weekend...i probably won't be back on until Monday....KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVERYONE!!!

jdon, I wish I could hop over and sprinkle you with perk-up powder. Being down in the dumps is awful, and I hope you're feeling better soon!!

Super-quick "Howdy" to rest of you - starting work today! It's a half-day, so I'll be back later to catch up... for now, I've doubled breakfast and packed some candy-free trail mix in the purse. So I am on-track, in theory. We'll see!

Here I go!

Thanks Lori, losing4, and thundah for the warm wishes and hugs. I was so stressed and emotional the bf and i had an argument. Wasn't a full blown fight just bickering about money and future plans...i cried myself to sleep and this morning he came in gave me a kiss before work and told me how much he loved me. So things are back to normal. I do feel better today. I'm going to my parents for the weekend and get to spend time with my sister. I love her so much and we are having some much needed girl time. My mom offered to pick me up and my sister drive me back considering the bf has my car today because of his being F.U.B.A.R. I haven't seen my dad in a while, I see my mom more becuase my grandfather lives down the street from me so when she comes to visit him we all see eachother, and my sister has been away so I don't get to see much of her. I don't know if I mentioned this to you guys but my parents might be moving to Alaska....here we go...

So my dad is having a mid-life crisis, which we all thought he has his when he wanted a boat that costs as much as a house. After my grandfather passed away..his dad...he feels like he doesn't have much time left. so the guys at his work saw this job offer for a Senior EE in Alaska...and the city is the fishing capital of the world! He's a huge fisherman, and diver, and hunter to it's perfect for him. He called and they company flew him and my mom out there all expenses paid and he fell inlove. so he says...i'm quiting my job here in Michigan...packing up...and moving to Alaska. My whole family is just mortified! My mom has a government job that she has still 2 years with, so my dad brilliant plan is to move there and have my mom move there in 2 years...nice...and he didn't consier cost of living he just ran before he could walk if you know what I mean. My family have never been more than an hour away from eachother and my mom always made my sister and I promise never to move too far away because they always want to be near us. My sister doesn't have someone like I do...my bf and I have a home together, want to get married and become a family...she doesn't. So she balled her eyes out on my dad and he started to cry so right now that's what's going on. More to come later. I feel happy for my dad because I know what a great oppertunity this is and yet .....WTF is he thinking about not being with my mom right away, just moving, missing out on our family and living so far away. My parents have been married for 27 years and my mom said you just have to make a sacrifices in a marriage...what can she do?

ok that's a long post and i'm sorry so for now i'll leave that and post later with weightloss stuff and shorter. hope you guys have a good day.

Morning

I have to admit that ive been lurking this past week. I was going through some depression,it happens to me few times a year and i just deal with it until it passes. But im BACK as of yesterday.

Lets just say last week was a 'i don't care about anything' week. so no weight-loss this week,actually im trying to lose the water weight that i gained

JD-My heart and thoughts are with you and your family right now. I couldn't imagine my father packing up and moving to Alaska. I hope everything works out for the best On the bright side,it is VERY beautiful up there!

David-Any luck with the house hunting yet?

Lori-I hope your just sleeping in and not out of power

KDM-Have a great time with your parents,sounds like a fun weekend!

Hate to have to post this, but I have had three horrible days of food and exercise - as in, eating whatever and NO exercise. No excuse - I just didn't bother tracking, made some choices that weren't the greatest, and have been feeling worn down and tired and didn't bother working out. Needless to say, the scale is up, though I know a lot of it is water retention as I drank NO plain water yesterday. Awful. I feel like crap and I know it's all my own doing, which makes me feel even crappier!

However! The upside to this is that I have felt sooooo bad the last three days, I really WANT to eat well and work out now because I know how much better I'll feel, more energy, less crankiness, etc etc. So in a way, going off the rails (and thank goodness it was just a three day detour) has made me recommit to my plans. But ugh - I feel like it's going to take weeks to undo the amount of "damage" I did in three days. Oh well - suck it up and move on!
