Sis and I have a joke about "the hood," cuz she is a pharmacy tech, and mixes chemo in a hood, and when I call her at work, they often tell me, "well, she is in the hood," and since I am twisted, I giggle to myself.
I culture prostate and breast cancer cell lines, as well as mouse fibroblasts from IGF-IR deficient mice that over-express the insulin receptor. Probably more than you wanted to know Our main projects deal with diabetes, obesitiy, prostate and breast cancer and the role of the IGF-IR and Insulin receptor . . . .

Christie/Wendy-I hope you guys are right-men are good for some things! (Sorry to the men around here . . . .just being funny!)

Ulanda-I understand why you want to drop out-but it's fine that you're doing the challenge and still tweaking out the plan. Seriously-the challenge is to keep us focused . . .it's not like we're going to win a million dollars.

JM........not TMI at all. Is your degree in microbiology? I really wish, sometimes, I was in the working world. I can live through you all I LOVE being a stay at home mom.....don't get me wrong.......I just miss grown-up discussions, sometimes. All in due time. We all have different time lines, don't we? DH doesn't exactly find it sexy when I am humming kid songs in bed at night....LOL.

Ulanda - There are plenty of others on the blue team who aren't following an official program at all, and they are having ups and downs like all of us. You are putting more effort into you than a lot of other people are probably putting into their weight loss, so quit if you must, but don't do it for that reason!

Wendelina - Yes, "riff-raff" is probably a good word. DH met me and DD when she was 4 (she's 14 now) and he's definitely a keeper! On another note, 4 kids??? Holy crap!

Just wanted to share.

Hey everybody!

I'm a bit behind on my posts, so I apologize in advance for not hitting everybody!

JM -- LOVE the new avator!! And as for being a single mom & dating - it can be done. I have four kids, and still managed to meet people. Like Nicole said, you're a package deal now!!

Cassi - I'm going to give the red some time to see if I lose again. Like I said before, I WAS losing, and the one lady at COD said that because I was "close" (I was at 194) then to go to purple to continue losing.

to everybody else!!

Barb Ė I am so sorry to see you going through such a rough time. How about joining me Monday and Tuesday w/TO and then plan your meals for the rest of the week. ButÖ plan something you would look forward to. Like maybe Baked Cheetos (LA Cheese Curls in your diary) for a starch one day, or a 100 calorie mini bag of popcorn. Find a recipe (I still love the beef Dijon, or a taco salad) that you will look forward to making. Make it something with a sauce that seems off plan but isnít. Something besides grilled and plain this and that. If you want, PM me and Iíll be happy to help. But maybe if you plan for the week, and include one thing each day that you have to look forward to, it will help you stay on track and wrap your brain around this.
Maybe I will do this. I HATE T/O LOL.....

You may just get a PM from me.

JM - Hee.. liked that cheeky comment about men.

Ok, Nicole.. which songs exactly were you humming in bed? I think my dh really likes it when I sing the "Wonderpets" theme at night..

Cassi - Yep.. 4 kids. When I met my dh, he didn't even bat an eye at that fact.. and now we have 5! What kind of mother would I be if I didn't share photos??

Here's a link to photos of my brood:

I did well at the authentic Mexican lunch - used it as a carb craver (duh! I forget all about using those!) Lemon water, here I come!

Afternoon All
We are getting some good snow here and trying to stay warm.. Cassi you'd need 7 layers!
The planets are working again as I was down 1.6 lbs today.. woohoo.. they tried to bring out the clapper and I promptly put it back in the jar.
Congrats to all the losers and an even bigger congrats to those that had a bad week but still came to the board to keep motivated. It is a slow process but a worthwhile process. The people I know that did Bersteins.. huge drops, very quickly have all gained it back and extra and now really have a hard time losing weight. Who wants to live on 700 calories a day and have a regimen of needles.. I'll take the slow approach.. and if we don't lose sometimes we still have the great group of people that we've met. It's not only a lifestyle change in how we eat but also we've all found a great system of support, accountablity and motivation.

Keep strong ladies and gents!
