Good morning Everyone!!

I have been MIA for a bit, travelling for work and slipped up a bit for the past few weeks but I am happy to say I have not gained any and I feel so blah from the bad food that I am excited to get back on program 100%

I really missed these boards and all of the motivation!!!!

Good morning everybody! Rise and shine!

Busy day today for me...I broke my glasses so I have to go shopping for some, hopefully one of those 2-for-1 deals so I'll have a spare the next time...

Yesterday was my first day at not forcing myself to paint or clean or jump up and down ladders all day, but to work on my mini artquilts. This is, by nature, more sedentary, and I found myself getting ansty, and got up to take 3 quick walks during the day. I don't know much about exercise and metabolism, but I'm thinking I must have rev'd up my metabolism in the past month of hard work and my body was used to it. Kind of a nice feeling...

Anyway, I go for my weigh-in after another month in maintenance. Have no idea what it will be, since I've worked so hard, yet had more snacks to keep me going. I bet the muscle mass will have increased. Whatever it is, I'll be happy. Just part of the journey...

Hope you all have a wonderful, OP, uplifting Monday!

Margaret

Good morning all! The garage sale we had this weekend was successful.....I still have tons of baby clothes left that I am trying to sell on craigslist. I thought about ebay but not sure I want to do all the work. So, if anyone here is looking for baby/infant clothes, let me know! I have lots!
My schedule at work this week is a little tough....but after 9 days I get a flex day off. So, I am using it the Monday after I get back from our cruise to be able to relax.

Have a great day all!

As my pile of "too big" clothes continues to grow I was thinking about this yesterday myself -- was rather dreading dealing with eBay and they're expensive clothes and so didn't want to just donate. I realized I'd forgotten about consignment stores -- that'll be my next stop! I know, at least in my area, there are consignment stores for baby/kids clothes too . . .

Good morning! I don't know why I am wide awake right now. Been up since 6 and I don't have anywhere to be till Wednesday morning! I have a lot to do around the house and getting things organized, but have no motivation.

Tomorrow is my 7th WI. I so want it to take me into onederland. I am so close but I also have the big "c". I drank some green tea last night and hope that will help for me.

I have no clothes in my closet or drawers that fit! When I cleaned my attic I found one thing of clothes. There were a lot of jeans that are 12's and 14's so I will be set when I drop to those sizes but the rest of my clothes are 16w and I literally walk right out of them. Since I really have nothing to do but an interview until the beginning of July, I am just not going to buy anything!

Well, I hope everyone has a great day. If it is WI day I hope you are a big loser!

Good morning I hope you do find a good 2 for 1 deal on glasses too. I was very inspired at all the work you were doing around the house too. It got me motivated to do some things too!

Have a great day all!

Consignment shops are a great option for baby and kids clothes. We have a few around here and they do quite well!


We had a break from the rain last week but it looks like it is back in full force. Everything is green and blooming though and am grateful for that.

Today I am playing waiting on the repairman game to fix our washer. When I use the clean washer cycle, the washing machine cleans the floors in the laundry room too by gushing water.. Not Cool!

Have a great 100% OP day all

Glad all your hard work paid off! I bet it feels good to get rid of all the stuff. It's like a cleanse... like IP for your home!


Just had my first phase 3 breakfast and it was divine. I am nervous about that insulin release and hope I don't get nauseous or anything.
