girlssssssssssssssssssssss. hi, miss you all. I hope you all had a great holiday weekend. I, unfortunately, was sick with TOM all weekend and didn't get out at all but it's all behind me now and I am ready to move forward.
Planwise....I managed to get in 3 workouts last week. Foodwise...I did pretty good...the way my tummy felt...I certainly didn't overeat by any means. Yesterday, I had a lot of water. Onto a new day. Girls...I have so much to catch up on. Congratulations to all of you on your losses and I look forward to catching up.

When I first came in just now.......I saw a post saying sorry Delphi! I had to scroll back a few pages to see what is going on. OH man....Delphi
Listen....I know a bit about those trach's. When my dad was in intensive care, he was on a breathing tube for a few weeks and they eventually had to do a tracheotomy on him. (was on a trach tube for 3 months after in hosp) I held the docs off for a few days and researched it to the dickens...anyhow...every situation is different. Make sure ..im sure you know......to ask..........if it's imperative.... what would happen if you dont and how long etc. Please contact me if you want to discuss it and/or talk I will leave you my number via prive okay? Hang in there sweetheart and know that we all are thinking of you here. Wishing your canaan is feeling better...hold onto your hope.

I am sorry .......I am running late and I have so much to catch up on here. I always do after TOM...i get behind. Dh is on vaca tomorrow and friday to see me a bit before leaving for Kentucky on Monday. Girls.......you keep on rocking it.......stick together and support one another as y ou have been and keep on shining! Talk with real soon.

Good morning chickies!

Delphi: Oh my friend! I am so sorry you and little Canaan have to go through this. Just reading your post made my heart ache. I will echo everything that everyone else has told you here. I know that a few words on a screen can't give you enough comfort, but please know that I am still thinking of you and Canaan

Jacqui: Thanks for the info on green tea. Do you have to make a fresh cup every time? I really like the taste of it, but I always get tired of having to boil water many times a day (or I just plain forget).

Mystical: Right on! You know? Only this time around I realize what all the nutritionists and experts always meant by it not being about a diet but a change of habits, so now I know it's a slow process that will require work and patience. But it's totally worth it ..Have fun with your trainer.

Glutio: Congrats on fitting into your smaller clothes! You should start wearing them soon or next thing you know you will have shrunk out of them Oh and on the hubby front , have patience my friend, you are not going to change him and he doesn't get that you are getting all frustrated I guess. I would even ask him to choose what he wants to have done and let him deal with it on his own time.

Ruby: Happy belated birthday! Glad to hear you had a good time.

Lene: Come on girly. Teach that scale who's the boss.

LTTG: When I first started, I had to limit myself to weighing once a week because those scale fluctuations were driving me insane and they actually affected my mood. Even if the scale blips up, there will be a definite downward trend in the longer run if you keep doing what you are supposed to do ....From your newer post: at your crazy day, you totally sound like a multitasking mom. It's ok, no need to beat yourself over skipping a workout (I am done with all that blame and shame thing this time around), just make sure you get in your workout today, maybe even add a few minutes if you feel the need.

Petunia:
It's never too late to join us

merose: Oh...I've seen those little flower buds, they look so cute, I've never bought one though, they seem too expensive since I figure they are single use and then the beautiful flower would go into the trash

LaurenA: I hear you on the naughty weeks, had a few of those myself too. I am back on track now, and I am happy to hear you are too.

Nello: Have fun during your vacation!

Tummy: Grrr! I just don't know how some people think it's OK to not show up when they are expected. I would make their leftover burgers extra spicy or something *just by accident* And OMG is right..almost 30 pounds

Gekster: The scale is the devil

Ms. P:
Have fun while you are away. Glad to hear your moving your bootay all over the place

CMo4: Hey! Your mom told us to bug you about your workouts, so I am bugging you about your workout for tomorrow. My philosophy on naughty food: If I am going to have it, I might as well enjoy it and not feel guilty about it, and get back on track the next meal.

Couch: Wow! Congratulations ...But, step away from the cake :P

As for me, today I have to do tons and tons of laundry and start getting ready for my mom's arrival on Saturday. I have not decided if I will make today my day off or if I will leave it for Saturday when I'll probably be busier.

Time to get moving now!

delphi - you have some amazing strength in you.

couch - claim it! as far as I'm concerned, 49.6lbs is 50lbs! congratulations, you must be feeling great.

Jacqui D - it's nice to find a fellow enthusiast. maybe we should start a tea based thread. I could go on and on and on...

crystal - well done!

and glutio - you'll be seeing the 250s in no time

Man I'm a bit crap at personals - that took me so long and I only covered about 5% of people. I'll try harder next time, I promise.

As for me I was under 190 today! 189.5! But it's not going to count officially unless it lasts 3 days... Woo! I feel good though.

Merose, I agree! It's nice to have a fellow tea enthusiast here! Congrats on reaching a new decade!! 189.5!! And girl, it is official now! Your body can hold water to make the number on the scale appear higher than you actually weigh, but it doesn't work in reverse! Lol! If it says you weigh 189.5 lbs, that's because you actually do weigh 189.5 lbs! Not water retention, but you, all you! Woohoo on the panties!! And you are only 1.5 lbs away from being out of the obese range!! Yay!!! When I hit that milestone, that was the happiest I have been so far on my weight loss journey, and the farther away I've gotten from ever being able to slip back into that range, the better I've felt!! I'm rooting for ya!! You're almost there!!

NSM, I have a crock pot that has a warming base that is separate from the pot on top, so after I boil water in a tea kettle, I place the kettle on that warming base on the lowest setting so it keeps my water warm all day, and I fill it up as I need to. If I am in a hurry and don't have time to boil a kettle of water, I just stick a cup of water in the microwave for a couple of minutes. I also have a water cooler that makes hot and cold water, but the heating element burnt out (grrr), so now it just makes cold. When it was working properly, it was really convenient!

FSA, so good to have you back!! I'm glad TOM is over now and you are feeling better! Good job on getting those workouts in! That's the hardest part for me with TOM!

FSA: I missed your post. Good to see you back, I missed you.

Jacqui: Thanks, I might try and find a warming plate thingy since my crockpot base is just gigantic.

Merose: That post took me a while to type, but I like catching up with everybody at least every once in a while

Ok..now I really am off to do something productive

Hi girls!!!
Delphi, hope today is a brighter day for you! All our thoughts, hearts, and prayers are with you and Cannan! Keep your chin up!

Now I have to chime in on the "Tea Chat"- I like Iced tea throughout the day, so I brew a whole batch. I use a glass caraffe w/lid I got at walmart for 3 bucks. After I brew it, I put it in the fridge, and I have fresh tea all day long. At night I do usually brew a cup or two of hot tea. Does anyone know if hot is better for you than cold? Oh, BTW If you like sweet tea, like a lot of people here in the south, I recommend using Stevia instead of splenda, or equal etc. I like the taste a whole lot better, and it is supposed to be better for you.

CrazyMamaof4- Have you worked out yet????? (had to because your Mom said so!)

FSA! Welcome back Chickie! You will Never guess what arrived today............ My first Hummer sighting!!!!!! I went screaming through the house, my husband thought there was a fire! I am such a bad host tho, I have been meaning to just take the feeder down, because the wasps were feeding off it, and there have been no hummers. So the nectar was like 4 weeks old!!! YUCK! I hurried and made some fresh! I am soooooo excited! I hope the little guy/gal will come back, and not tell all his friends "It is only a 1/5 star, don't bother" LOL
Sorry about TOM, he is hanging around my neck of the woods to, causing crazy behavior when it comes to my food.... oh well, I will keep on trying!!!
I am drinking my green tea, today hoping it will somehow curb the intense craving for chips,dip, and chocolate!!!!!
OMG, did you see Cakebatter? She looks sooooooo little! I feel like I haven't talked with you in ages! Ok, I guess that's it for now (don't want to wear you out!) Oh, one more thing, we are having your grilled chicken recipe for dinner tonight, mmmm yummy!

Glutio- Yay on the "new again" clothes, I love it when that happens! Congrats on the new decade, That is fantastic! How is the house coming along?

Gekstar, YAY for the loss!!!! That is great! Keep it up!

Jaqui9999- HOT~HOT~HOT!!! that is all I can say about that! You are ROCKIN' your bikini, You should be soooo proud of yourself! You really look fanfreakintastic! You know everyone on that lake is hating you! I hope they eat their hearts out!!! Way to go!!!

I will check in again later, got to go put some miles in.......

Hey ladies.

Guess who is back home? Me and my Canaan. I told them I needed a week to get my affairs in order and do some research, then I would make an appointment to bring him in to at least have the reflux surgery. They are gonna close off something so that he can't reflux and hopefully end all that vomiting after his feedings but especially that pump. He has been so quiet since I brought him home...he is at peace, finally! So, it sucks we have to go back and I'm still undecided on the trach. They gave me no guarantees and said it would in no way prevent aspiration or pneumonia...so, it really seems like a senseless surgery to put him through right now, but he does still sound pretty rough, but getting enough oxygen. Anywho, I miss you gals and thanks again for listening and for all the kind words and prayers. Me and Canaan thank you. So I'll see you ladies bright and early in the morning...for at least a week anyways.

to all of you big losers and for all of you that are getting those workouts in. I'm looking forward to getting back to some normacy and catching up with you ladies.

Hi Delphi! Glad to hear the 2 of you are back home. What a relief to hear that you have a week to do your research and weigh in your options before having to make a decision. Tracheotomies are sometimes necessary but definitely do some serious thinking before agreeing to it.
:hugs:

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO TIRED!!!!!

Today, I finished painting the front door, touched up the paint in the guest room, moved DH's desk out to the living room so he could put it in the shed, moved a dresser from the shed to the guest room, went through a box my mom dropped off in September, took pictures of my wedding dress to list on ebay (I have DH, so I don't need it. Plus, I never plan on being big enough to wear it again not that I plan on needing it again) and got it listed, took pics of the house all painted, sent said pics to my parentals and my realtor, talked to my uncle about the carpet for 2 closets, talked to my client that did the concrete to get an invoice for the work done for the info for selling the house, put the house numbers back up, changed the locks on the shed and the water closet off the patio, ran errands, bought some food, had lunch with DH and his coworkers, bought paint, watered the yard, talked to my grandmother, talked to my stepfather, vacuumed some, and did about an hour of workwork.

DH's stuff is still sitting in the living room. He's working on something for a freelance client of his right now, though, and has been since he got home. No progress!!!!! I want to kill this client because he always NEEDS STUFF NOW at the worst possible times, and DH takes care of it when there's no time for it. And then he doesn't do his billing.

I'm craving Subway, and I'm really low on my points today. According to my GoWear Fit, I've already burned 2700 calories today, and I still have at least 2 hours left. I've been going to bed earlier and earlier each night trying to get more sleep, but even with the Ambien CR, I'm not falling asleep until 10p or 10:30p even if I lay down before 9:30p. I'm getting up around 7:30a every day, though, just because my body demands it.

I hope I finish soon. Hahahaha.

Delphi- what more can i say, that hasn't been said.
As a mother there is nothing harder than to feel helpless when your child is going through such a difficult time. Even though we are all just forum friends, there is power in numbers and we will certainly be praying for you.


Glution- Way to go on reaching those 160's
Nellonello- You will be strong and get through your vacation just fine...think of next years vacation when you get to sport a bikini....

All the rest of you losers are awesome , keep up the great work

As for me, I stepped on the scale this morning and to my utter surprise it read
239.9..... I think I will make the 235 before surgery....


by the way, my picture is not flattering and i know it but I think its better than the smart Monkey LOL
Thanks for all of you ladies sharing your stories your pictures and each others heart issues....
