    Hi FSA, Ms_P, and Cake!

    JasonLea, congrats on the great news!
  • Sorry I've been off the board, it's been an extremely busy week at work (for those of you who don't know, I have Wed/Thurs off and work all weekend) and I haven't had a chance to sit down and think!!

    I still have to go back and read all the posts but thought it would be better to take a second and say I'm still here since today is also a busy one.

    I am making a Wizard of Oz diarama out of Easter Peeps for a contest at my job today---now that is going to keep me busy!!

    I hope everyone is doing well, I will try to read all the posts later today and get on later...

    Take care everyone, it is exciting to see all the people up for a challenge this month!!

    Lewisempireeeee, hey hey!!!! wtg on that scale dropping for you! Niceee! Oh my gosh, I had a lot of the green tea last night and the night before.

Aw you, Im glad : ) You are getting closer and closer to that onderland . Hope you had a great day and a good visit at the docs. Lewisempire, I planted approx. 2oo of them I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with them all now . THey are all vigourous climbers, I still have many many more to transplant into larger pots (for now!) and put some skewers in temp. for the vines. They are already at the top! Holy smokes! I am going to have my hands full with them but gosh their blossoms are just so beautiful! Heavenly blue morning glories. I planted the cypruss vines as well (for the little hummers) and about 14 moon flowers (those are cool). THing is, I can't put them outdoors until may so for now they are, hahaha, indoor residents of my home!

How you managed to do all that in the midst of moving (which is enormous exercise and of itself) awes me! . I hope everything goes smoothly tomorrow and also if I don't see you before you go for the holidays, have a wonderful time with the family and a fun and happy Easter! When I read about what you and DH have planned, ohhhhhhh, how nice! What a super duper idea! You go girl! : )

    Keep up the great work everyone
  • Today has been an extremely productive day, cleaning and packing. I thought I'd take a moment and hop on here and see what everyone's up to.

    urockmom- SO good to hear from you. How awful it musta been to get SO sick! I hate those kind of bugs. It is quite an accomplishment to have maintained, though. Congrats on that, for sure!!

    Well, everyone wish me luck. We're moving tomorrow and I pray all goes smoothly. I expect it to all be fine. I've organized and gotten things ready so it should be pretty painless. I will be offline for the next little bit, though. I may check messages at my parents'. Otherwise I won't be on 'til next week, so don't worry about me going MIA. I'll be back online in no time!
    So, Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy!
  • Happy Easter Ms_P and good luck with the move!

    Thanks FSA! You're doing a great job too!

    Hi Scarlet! Good to see you!
  • I am doing personals tomorrow cause Igotta get in the bed! But I did awesome today on and got all my stuff ready for tomorrow. I can't wait to WI tomorrow evening! Yay!!! TTYL

    Love all you girls!
  • GOOOOOD MORNING!!!! Ladies!!!

    Jacqui- You are on the ball sis, keeping that list going and going...your a blessing girl

    Cakebatter- Sending (((((good vibes))))) for your weigh in ...you go girl!

    Ok as for me, I HIT MY GOAL already!!!!!! I weighed in this morning after one day on phase on of South beach to see that the scale is right where I wanted it to be I will continue phase one today and see how it goes in the morning but if I ccan just stay where I am I will be SUPER thrilled as my Easter dress fits, and I bought it months ago as a goal dress and well I dont have to make a mad dash to the store to replace it this year Have a great day everyone and know that this is your year!!
  • Goodmorning everyone Hope you all had a nice night last night and slept well.

    I am happy, I weighed in and lost another lb. so I am 2 1/2 lbs. down so far this month. 3 weeks to go from today! : ) so far so good!

    Goodmorning Jacqui, and a goodmorning to all of you ladies. I hope everyone wakes up to a happy and successful day today.

    cakebatter, yay on being OP! Good luck with the WI tonight girl, can't wait to hear your news!

    Chrisitan, hi there congratulationssssss on reaching your goal already That is super christy, and congrats on your Easter dress! To have bought that as a goal dress and having it fit now must be so nice! wtg christy! About the SBD (south beach diet), are you on day 2? Good for you! THe first few days are the hardest (were for me, but boy are the results worth it!! ) .

    Okay, as for me girls. I am very happy with the recent moving of the scale and am now focusing on this week and scheming around the weekend.

    I am out of meal plan ingredients already and need to go to the market today. My plan is being OP and then on Easter Sunday we go to my in-laws for a casual buffet style lunch. I plan to have my lunch and eat what I wish, but put a little bit of everything on my plate in moderation. I need to be pretty good because next week I am celebrating orthodox easter and I am hosting it, having my familiy over. I am very excited about it but I do cook a lot and I will be okay as long as I dont keep nailing the leftover. One step at a time! lol.

    It is a clear blue sunny sky today and boy is that nice to see! I think our weather is finally going to begin getting milder. I took the day off from exercise yesterday and in general, so I have much to do today. I slept good and am ready and rearing to go! I have a lot to catch up on here so I need to get a move on and then hit the great outdoors for a nice walk later!

    Hope you all have a nice day. Everyone is doing so well, keep up the great work. To all, let's remember that today is a new day.
  • Christian - WTG hitting your month goal aready! You are on fire! and don't you just love being able to wear what you already bought!

    FSA - THis weightloss stuff must be contagious...you, christy and hopefully me! Don't you just love blue skies. Enjoy your day little lady!! Thanks for my "unofficial" congratulations

    MsP - Happy Easter! I am glad your move will go smotthly. Check in when you can!

    Scarlet - Hi there. I see you have been busy! I hope all is going way

    Urockmom - SOrry you have been so sick that sux...Glad you are back!

    Econ - WTG . Bless those decimal points.

    I am doing pretty myself. Can't wait till tonight! I have POP for 3 days. I got new workout clothes YAY!
    All ready for my weekend.I may not be able to be on in the daytime that much anymore. We are getting a lot of work in the near future . How will I ever manage w/out you ladies???
  • Christian!! GREAT job on meeting your goal!!

    FSA, Yay!! You're doing so well! So glad the scale is moving for you!

    Cake, way to stay OP and good luck on WI!! So, if you can't come on much during the days anymore, will we still be seeing you in the evenings? We can't do without our cake!

    My plan for Easter is to try not to make a big deal out of all the food this year. I want to treat it as any other meal, only like with a menu on display that I get to choose from. I want to choose a small serving of the main meat (whatever it's going to be--no telling with my sister-in-law!) and two servings of veggies (whichever ones are not in creamed this or casserole that). If there are deviled eggs, I'll have one of those. And if there is salad that is not like a 7-layered salad, I'll have some of that. There should be a veggie tray if there is not a plain salad. So that's my plan! I always do the little-bit-of-everything thing and it always backfires on me. I always end up overeating because I just love everything! So I'm going to try it this way this time. I really want to change my thinking about celebrating the food this year. And hopefully, now that I've posted my intentions, I'll stick to them!
