Tiffany - I eat the "light" kind of yogurt that is fat free.........it doesn't have that nasty sour taste you refer to otherwise I wouldn't eat it either.

Jello - we did have quite a lot of rain, not as much as Galveston..........maybe 5-7 inches. It is sunshining right now but we have a good chance of getting more that we don't need later today. I'm glad to hear that things are going well with your trainer. I think it's a good thing that you don't weigh each week and I wish I could make myself stay off the scale.

Kayla - have a good time at camp.

Tigerlilly - I too am having difficulty this week, can't seem to get enough food and I'm not the least bit motivated to exercise or drink my water. Don't know what's going on with that. I'm thinking Mexican for dinner tonight sounds good. I know I want a trim bod more than I want the food, just can't seem to focus right now. Glad your poison ivy is getting better.

Have a good weekend all, see ya on Monday.

I like yoplait custard style yogurts, but haven't a clue about the fat or calories. That's how I've gotten to this point, I'm clueless.
FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS!

Bad, bad days, girls. I'm too unhappy to want to try very hard at anything right now. I'm greiving over someone who died last winter and - well it snuck up on me and knocked me over yesterday. It makes me REALLY, REALLY annoyed to have to be at work and pretend like any of this sh!t is important when I feel THIS down. Everything about this place that I can usually laugh at rubs me up the wrong way until I'm about ready to snap.

And the diet - well I'm just too ORNERY to try to be even one iota better than I feel like being. I think if I had some space & solitude I'd be fine.

Maybe I'll feel better tomorrow.

hey girls!

Cafe- I totally understand what you are going through......i had a friend pass away in january, she was only 13 and we live in a small town so EVERYONE knew her..... And it just hits me at the weirdest times. When i hear certain songs, when people talk about death and stuff, its a really hard thing to get over...and i dont think you ever do...but talking to people usually helps...you would be surprised at the number of people who feel the same way...even when you think people are over it....they arent really. Anyways..i hope you are feeling a little better......remember that even though you lost a friend, you gained an angel.......

Tiff- Im going into grade 10 also......its not so bad for me though because grades 7-12 are all in one school where i live....we just switch hallways! so its not all that bad....but my little sister is starting grade 7 and she is totally freaked out by coming to my school....its ALOT bigger than the elementry school.......but anyways.......

Huntress- I TOTALLY know what you mean about not being able to get enough food! im like......craving things left right and center! i hope this goes away sooooon!!!!

Tigerlily- did you put calamine lotion on it???? thats what we put on the kids at camp when they get poison ivy!it works like a charm!!!


anyways girls....i gotta go clean the basement and then get ready to go to work....im training the "NEW GUY" tonight....who just happens to be GORGEOUS! lol....anyways.....later girls....
luv
Kayla

Hope you all had a nice weekend, I'm sure that Dyan and Kayla both did since they both were gone having fun.

It's Monday again, start of a brand new week and I'm going to leave last week behind. I'm not entirely sure what happened, I was cruising along just fine and then I crashed! Oh well, I'm just gonna get back in the saddle and not look back.

Hope you all have a good day, Cafe how are you doing? We're here for you if you need us.....take care.

Monday already!?!? Well, at least the forum's back up! Looks pretty good but I didn't see the dates and times of the posts at first and thought they weren't showing that any more. OK, so I'm a little slow. It's Monday. But at least the boss isn't in this week!

TOM hit me over the head yesterday and I spent a good part of the day lying in bed, flipping through the TV channels. Hey, there's something to be said for that! But this one wasn't as bad as some in the past and by the end of the afternoon I felt well enough to point the fans at the treadmill, hop on and try to salvage my exercise point for the day.

Today, I'm following the sample menu that my trainer had created for me. A few minor substitutions but the calorie count and amount of starches, veggies, etc, comes out about the same. Let's just see how I feel at the end of the day.

I'm going to poke around the forum and see if anything else is new. Talk to you all later.

11 days to vacation....

Hi everyone! We made it to the new forum. I tried on Sunday night from home... No dice.

I hauled myself into the gym on Saturday & worked out good -n- hard which felt great! I was doing really well on food, too, but then we went to an outdoor film fest held by friends... And they were so cute they had these baskets like concession sellers and came around with homemade popcorn and all sorts of candy. So we all sat under the moon on blankets out in the country and watched an old Hitchcock movie projected on a huge white sheet...

And then yesterday there was a going away party for dear friends - it was pot luck and you know what that means. Lots of great ethnic food. But all in all it was a good weekend for me - good to get out and be social and I did do some healthy things.

Thank you all for your words of encouragement. Like Kayla said, it hits you at the weirdest times - seems like you should be able to just move on but when it's time to grieve again there's no shortcut around it - just happens. I'm better now.

New week!!!

Good Morning ladies!!

I am so glad to be back!!



I have a LOT of catching up to do, both here and at work. So I'm posting quickly to let ya'll know that I'll have to read up on all the posts in a bit. I was VERY, VERY, bad , so bad that on Saturday (weigh-in), I gained back 5 pounds !!! ! I am very disappointed in myself and am so thankful that it's Monday and I can get back to my routine and back OP.

gotta run..... will catch up and post later.....

Okay, I hope I read all the posts.....

I want to congratulate EVERYONE, first for accepting the challenge and second, for doing so well.

Tiff~ First I have to say that when you said you hate drinking that "devil water" I thought of the "Waterboy" have you seen it? Everytime his mom doesn't like something she calls it the "devil". It was so funny. So anyway, I still get a chuckle out it everytime I think about it. I am so proud of you , you are doing so well.

Jello ~ you are truly an inspiration. I hope to get back on the wagon w/ a vengence!!

I wish I could remember everything I just read, but things are just spinning in my head right now.
.

Okay, about my 4 day vacation. Had a good time in Reno. Came home with $300 in my pocket! Which is a lot more than what I left with. I seemed to be on a mini roll. I decided that I was going to take $20 and play the dollar machines (something I rarely do). and within minutes won $100, and that kinda set the tone for the trip. We hit Boomtown on our way out of Reno and I won $250 on a quater machine and then another $150 on a .50 machine. So all in all I had a blast.

Saturday, we went to the "flea market" or what some may call a "swap meet". DH and I got some Raider license plates and he got me a license plate frame that reads "I know it's cute, but get off my A$$!". (I wish it said I know it's "BIG" but get off my .......)If there's one thing I hate, it's for people to be riding me. GGgrrrrr. Got home and BBQ'd. A friend bought me a pair of capri's for my birthday and they were 2 sizes smaller than I normally buy at Lane Bryants, and guess what? I'm wearing them right now!! YYeeeeHHaaww!! Saturday night went and got another tattoo. Got a butterfly (colored in) with the name of all 3 of my kids around it. Why did I have to give them such long names? Cheyenne, Lucas (not bad)& Kaleigha. Very costly....$120, but I'm happy I FINALLY did it. I've been meaning to get my kids' names, but just didn't know where I wanted them, etc..... Oh yeah, it's on my calf. I figure I'm safe there, there won't be any saggage when I get to my goal weight.

Sunday, went and put about $1000 worth of stuff on lay-away, for all 4 kids and DH. We don't have to worry about "back to school" shopping, as we only have Adriana every other weekend and Cheye is still in Pre-school. But they all need winter clothes. DH got 4 pairs of jeans and tennis shoes. The good thing is....none of them will be in need this winter. We got everything, from Jackets, socks, panties and outfits to shoes. I didn't get anything! I refuse!!! Then we went to another aunt's and BBQ'd AGAIN! Yikes.... we were some BBG'ing freaks!

I did pretty good on the water, sucked on the food. Hard, to gauge things at the Buffets in Reno. Does walking in circles at the casinos and walking around the flea market count as exercise? Hehe..... Don't worry, I didn't count it.

Oh yeah, Thank you all for the birthday wishes! It really makes your day, when people remember you.

TTFN

Okay, so Sandi from the 100# club, scanned in my pic. She was so nice to do that for me. Anyhoo, here's pic of me, taken 8 years ago. I was at 220lbs (I have to lose 67 more pounds to get back DOWN there ). I had lost about 40 pounds, and still needed to lose another 60 to hit goal. I then moved to San Diego and it all went down hill from there. I'm 5'6"ish but look like Super Woman, because of the angle. And man.....did I have on enough makeup? YIKES!! I don't wear any now.

Just remember is was two hundred and twenty pounds!!

with no further ado......(the quality isn't very good, because we had to shrink it down to size.)

Well, heck. I tried and TRIED all day today to get in here and no dice. Last night I could and now I can, so if I am not on here much, it's because I CAN'T GET IN!!!!!

Dyan, you look great in that picture, you look like someone I would love to go to Vegas with. You really look like someone who lives life to the fullest. Now, I am obligated to post a picture myself. Ooof. Golly, I don't even know if I can find one. I don't have a scanner, but I have a digital camera, so maybe that will be my goal in the next couple of days, to get a picture on here.

Glad you had such an incredible time! Coming home with money in your pocket is always a great thing!!! Oh, and Happy Belated birthday!!! I HATE it that I am not on top of things like I used to be! I promise to be better.

Oh, and I love Adam Sandler. Waterboy cracks me up! I keep hearing Kathy Bates talking about "the debil" And that "High Quality H2O"

Cafe, I'm so glad that you are doing better. The film outdoors sounds so wonderful. What a great idea!!!

Jo and Huntress, glad we all made it back here. Where are ya Tig?

Ok, I am off to catch some much needed sleep. Full day at work tomorrow and the inlaws are coming too. *EEEEK*

Tomorrow is weigh in and I know I gained this week. So, I will be needing support tomorrow night for sure!

Talk with you all soon,
Tiff
