Hi all:

I won't be joining the Kathy MSith since I already lift weights but will lurk on thread if no one minds and occassionally drop in to say Hi!

Good luck to everyone. I know you guys are really going to love this. Also if you start feeling too fatigued up the protein and lower the carbs a bit, it helped me it many help you. Or better yet just follow what Kathy Smith says.

See you all on the other threads!

Good Morning. Not enough coffee in the world today. Too much fresh chilling wind this weekend. Zapped me. Hopefully some exercise will perk me up, get the blood flowing again.

Tiff, cardio Mon, Wed, Fri for me....weights Tue, Thur. As for the weekends, I'll have to work on that. Maybe I can drag DH into lifting weight w/me.

Bright, the Italian Beef is soooo easy. Rump Roast sliced by the meat counter dude, 3 or so packets of Good Seasons Italian, can of beef broth, throw it in the crock all day....serve on buns with banana peppers. Need more details?

DNW....up protein and down carbs....that will be hard for me, but I know it needs to be done.

Cafe, getting diet/health books from the library is one of my best motivators. Cookbooks too.

Off to get the kids ready for school.

DNW - I'm not doing KS either, at this time. Haven't had time to get the book, let alone get organized, LOL!

Tiger - mmm Italian Beef. I'm going to have to try that! Question: since it cooks all day do you think it would work out with other cuts of meat? I tend to buy whatever's cheap that week - round steak seems to go on sale often in the winter months and tends to be pretty lean if you trim it so I use that a fair amount... Can be a bit tough sometimes but in the slow cooker... How many lbs?

Bright - Good for you for throwing those pages away and starting fresh. It's nice to see your smiling face.

Tiffany - Just wanted to give you props - it works so well to have each seperate "thing" on its own thread. Thanks for doing this maintenance! I promise I'll drop in on the KS thread, especially if I can check out the book and start reading.

Girls, you're not going to believe this - they've got Krispy Kreme's in the lobby this morning. They're cutting up the donuts and giving samples to promote a fundraising event. You can actually order donuts that they'll deliver here in a week or so - for disability awareness month. I am truly surrounded by evil !

Crispy clear sunshine this morning, shining through the leaves (many still green, lawns too with all the rain) and some high little clouds. Temps in the low 30's. Yep, it's breath-viewing season again. Looking out the window I can see that a light cloud cover has blown over now, which makes me feel better about being in the office.

Cafe, I used a rump roast....little over 3 pounds. Don't know why round steak couldn't work. If you try it that way, you'll have to let me know how it turns out.

Good Morning Girls. I worked a half day Saturday trying to get a handle on the new part-time job. OMG what a mess Iíve gotten into. The other gal that was doing the accounts receivable has not sent statements out since the first of the year!!!!!!! No wonder there is a cash flow problemÖÖÖ Hopefully I can get it straighten out in a month or so.

Did well on eating all weekend, DH and I went shopping and found him a light weight and a heavy jacket and got him a pair of slacks. Slacks have to be made over. He isnít a big man but his shape if difficult to fit with clothes off the rack, so they all have to be altered quite a bit. His shoulders, waist and hips are all the same size with no butt, and skinny legs. Heís still my hunk tho.

We went to see Red Dragon, great movie if you like that type of scary film. We both liked it.

Well, payroll calls so I had better run for now. Itís cold in Missouri this morning and soup sounds good.

Good Morning ,

Hope everyone had a good weekend. It was nice here. Yesterday is was in the 80's, but I spent most of my day in the mall, spending money I shouldn't have been spending. But I got more Christmas presents out of the way , and we went to a mall that I don't usually go to. Haven't been there in some 20 years!! Not since I was about 15. , So that was my excuse for spending. I was supposed to go to storage, but my mom calls (we share the storage) and says she's not ready (we're going to go thru everything - which is gonna be a whole weekend thing!) and she wants to go next weekend. UGH! Saturday we BBQ'd and hung out. Oh yeah, DH and I went to Sears and bought a camcorder (for our Utah trip in November) and a DVD/VHS thingy. The VCR in the girls' room, kept eating tapes, so we gave them the one from the living room and now we got a new one. We can watch DVD's or Reg. Videos on it. Pretty cool .

Anyway......I hope everyone has a good day.

Oh, I put the tally's on the 3 point challenge thread and as far as KS ~ must have miss understood and I lifted this morning. I haven't gone to that thread yet. I'm headed there now !

Monday's half over already!?!? Hm, well, I guess that's a good thing, eh? Sometimes I hate this job and everyone here!!!

Uh oh, Jello's in a mood....

Over the weekend I met up with an old friend of mine who's got her own business. They started a few years ago with 3 people and they now have about 15-16. During our conversations, she kept saying she wanted to hire me, etc. Oh brother, is that tempting!!! It wouldn't be until January so I figure I'll wait until it's time for my review here and then see just how serious she is and just how serious my current boss is about keeping me.

But if it were up to me at this very moment ... Hoooo Boy and Bye Bye!!!!

OK, just wanted to let all you KS folks know that Cafe, Nurse and I will be your cheerleaders. Rah!

Tig, I don't eat much red meat but that Italian Beef is making my mouth water!

Girls, I want you all to know that I was a white tornado this weekend!! I started cleaning and rearranging furniture, etc. on Saturday morning and didn't stop until late last night, I swear!

Hm... so why doesn't the place look all that much cleaner....

Oh but I did stop to go to Dick's Sporting Goods and bought one of those big ol' exercise balls like they have at my gym. What fun I've been having!! My dog too, who seems to think it's a fun game to try to knock mommy off the big ol' exercise ball. My balance is a bit precarious at best to start with! Wheeee!!!

I hear the "master's" voice so I'd better go. Seems I'm not the only one in a mood here today.

Later!

Good Grief! Slow around here today.
I did cardio and drank the debil water. Not as good on food. Darn icecream. It wasn't even my favorite flavor. ??
Weights for me tomorrow, scared after hearing Dyans description of how she's feeling. Look out noodles arms! Here I come!

Just writing a bit of a note....

Went to the gym today and have my program down to about 30 min. Having problems with the food, though, and I think it's mainly when I get home at night.

It's cold here tonight and we have our heat on...it seems my teenagers are attached to their summer clothes and are resisting the change in weather. Time to dig out the flannels!

I need to read about the Kathy Smith thing you all are doing....I have her walk tape and a few videos...she amazes me with her story.

Have a good Tuesday, everybody. I'll buzz by later.

"Bright"

I just want to say that I'm still hanging out and trying to post at least once a day. I know some of you may think I'm crazy, but I'm already planning for Christmas, my gall bladder thing and our Thanksgiving vacation. I am getting wore out alot quicker it seems. I'm trying to get my exercise out of the way in the mornings, so that meant getting up at 4:30 this morning. I guess we'll see how long that lasts . I've noticed on quite a few threads that things have slowed down. Trying to figure it out. It could be the same reasons I've slowed down. But one thing is for sure, I have not slowed down on my weightloss program. I want this so bad that I can taste it. I have NEVER wanted this as bad as I do now. When I first started posting on this thread, I mentioned my epihany. I can't/won't be stopped from hitting my goal. It's weird though, more and more people are commenting on my weight loss, and for some reason, it's not as satisfying as I thought it would be. Could it be that I don't see it? Or that I think I'm dreaming and that I'll wake you and would have GAINED 45 pounds, instead of losing it? Is it the knowledge that I have another 102 pounds to go to hit goal? I don't get it . Am I making any kind of sense?

Well, counting calories is totally becoming second nature, which is great. It really seems to be whats working for me. I drink myu water every day now, too. I never thought I'd get this far. I knew I was going to do this, but when I started Ihad no idea how. I was pretty much flying by the seat of my pants, and still feel that way some days.

My mother is also overweight and she keeps telling me she needs to lose weight. This may sound terrible, but I'm REALLY tired of hearing it. She lives right upstairs from me. I told her we could go walk together or workout....and nothing. So honestly I don't want to hear. I just want to tell her to just cut it out, and talk to me when she's really ready to do this. I don't know.....I think it would be so awesome to do this together...but I can't wait for her and I can't make her do it. Whenever I bring it up, she changes the subject. But 2 seconds later, she's talking about wanting to be able to play with her grandchildren. I've offered to give her work out videos, everything. I know that there is nothing more that I can do, but it gets so frustrating.

I'm sorry, I'm just ranting and rambling. I have been feeling this for quite some time, and I guess I needed to get all this off my chest. I'm feeling like I'm not being very supportive to anyone here, and I want to apologize for that.

Brighter: thank for the info on the gall bladder thing. I know it will all work out . P.S. it's freakin hot, in good ole "Sunny" California. I have my fans on right now, and 10:30 pm. BTW what is KS's story?

Tig: Don't let what I said scare you. I'm just hoping to get some input from you and Tiff. You know, I hate not knowing if I'm actually doing it right. I know I'd feel better, if I knew that you guys were having problems too . You know...misery loves company

Cafe: I hope you survived the attack of the Krispy Kreme!! I'm not all that crazy about them Am I crazy? Of course, if you put oine in fromt of me I will gobble it down! :donut:

Jello: Working for your friend sounds like an awesome deal! I hope it all works out. You never sounded to thrilled, when you talk about your current job. I have a pretty cush job. No one bothers me, ya gotta love it!

DNW: Keep up that positive attitude. Your great!

Huntress: come out, come out where ever you are......

Tiff: the boards just not the same without cha'. I'm going to assume that you are doing the 3 point challenge on your own and will not be posting your numbers (that is of course, you tell me otherwise). Sounds like the new J.O.B. is busy.

Cripes, I'm tired......Goodnight to everyone....it's time I hit the hay!

Good morning......

Hi Dyan - I'm still around, just having difficulty finding the time to get in here. Can you believe that when I'm at work they actually expect me to WORK? Well, some of us in our office are expected to work and others can sit and play on the computer all day, go figure. Betcha if I took a sledge hammer to that thing those people wouldn't be goofing off while the rest of us make money for the company. Ooooopss............did I say that?

Hey, don't feel bad about what you said about your mom, mine has been saying for years that she is gonna get busy and lose weight, but she never does anything about it. She has a lot of health problems and really NEEDS to lose the weight, even her doctor can't get her to do it. I guess she figures she's too old to really change her habits and might as well enjoy whatever time she has left, I dunno. I really hate that attitude, but she's an adult and I can't force her to do anything. Just let it go, your mom will do it when she's really ready.

Brighterdays - please, please send some of that cold weather my way, I'm suffocating here. Thank you very much.

Cafe - Krispy Kremes.....yuk, just imagine those things are something that you absolutely despise like say.........beets or turnips and walk away. By the way, sorry about the mix-up, it was Jello I was talking about.

Kayla - hope you're doing alright, haven't heard back from you.

Geez, I just looked at my watch and I should already have gotten in the shower.
To be continued.........................

Just a quick note this morning. Yesterday, my gyn's office called and told me they found yet ANOTHER infection in my last pap test. She called the prescription into the drug store for me and I picked it up last night. Took first dose this AM and it's making me sick sick sick sick sick. Big side effect is nausea and vomiting. Well I've got one and am hoping to avoid the other. Yuck.

Don't know how long I'll stay here at work feeling like this. Hope the boss doesn't give me a hard time if I decide to leave early. Oh but what about the gym tonight? Obsess obsess obsess....

Just a quick note to Dyan - I sympathize with you. Had the same problem with my mom. But when I mentioned exercise (even walking) it scared her. Instead, we'd have the occasional dinner together and I'd make low calorie, low fat dishes and she'd end up with a couple recipes and tips for cutting fat, etc. Her favorite thing to do now is make mashed potatoes with chicken broth instead of milk and butter. Maybe start out a little slower with your mom??? Just my 2 cents.

I did say this would be a quick post so I'll go. But first ...

MISS YOU TIFFANY!!!! Wish you could post more.

Later!

Goooood Mooooorning, it cureently 6:30 am and all's well. I've gotten in my cardio and half mi aqua. Yippee, skippee.

Huntress & Jello, thanks. I am now ready to move past it. BUT, I do have to say this. One of the things about my mom is, she doesn't like fish or chicken. She doesn't like any kind of poultry, not turkey and not even eggs! Go figure. She also has health issues. about ummmmm, umpteen years ago she had the WLS. She lost oodles of weight. Not exactly sure what happened. I kinda remember her saying something about the staples coming out (Yeah, that's how long ago it was). After her surgery she became anemic (?) and other stuff. When I had mentioned to her that I was thinking about the surgery she told me not to do it. So here I am doing it the old fashion way. My mom isn't very old, she's only 54!! Her knees are bad, she never has any energy, and it kills me that I know she would love to do so much more with her grandchildren, but due to the weight she can't. Okay.....sorry....I'm move past it....here....I....go................
Did ya see me?

Jello ~ I truly hope that you start to feel better soon. Go home and take care of yourself. Boss' need to realize, that when we don't feel well, that we are NOT at our optimum and that they are basically paying us to do mediocre work... But hey, what cha gonna do. How does this grab you? I used to be a waitress, and one day I called in sick. I mean I was sick as a dog! My nose was running like there was no tomorrow, I had a chest cough and my throat was sore. And you know what the manager said? do you? She asked me if I could come n just for a little while!! I was livid , I just about lost it. I asked her if she was crazy, told her **** no and hung up!! I don't know about you, but would want some runny nose waitress serving you your food? GROSS.
Yeah, so I kinda ran off topic, as usual... sorry.....but please, talk to your boss, go home and rest. As far as working out.....how far do youreally think you'll get feeling this way? Your so silly.

Dyan,

Your post struck a note with me. Let me just say say WAY TO GO on establishing and continuing a good WL routine. You are doing awesome, and even if every day doesn't have the intensity of climbing to the top of Pike's Peak, your persistance in continuing to do good for yourself is wonderful. When healthy things become a habit, it seems like no longer such a big deal, but that's the secret - getting to the point where it is not a big deal is our double-secret ultimate goal!

The food planning is less intense for me lately, too, but not second nature yet. All in good time. I've noticed that my NEED for this place has transitioned into it being more a part of my routine as a daily renewal of my sense of purpose and goals, and an interchange with like-minded friends. Maybe that's what you're experiencing, too? It's not that I love it less but maybe that I'm not leaning on it for survival.

Which is great, isn't it, that we actually become wiser and stronger as we go? More capable than ever to keep winning this battle of the bulge. But in my case, slowly... very slowly. LOL.

Hey everybody, give yourself a big hug! We can all do this thing, by simple diligent application. Now, after all that thinking I'm too tired for shouties but I love ya.
