Will post my usual morning post sometime later, but wanted to make sure I got our MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY done early in the morning, so here's my contribution for MM:


Regrets can never be fully erased, yet they can be prevented. One day soon you'll look back on today. Whether you look back with regret or with satisfaction depends entirely on what you do right now.

This moment right now is in your hands. Though there are plenty of circumstances beyond your control, those things do not matter nearly so much as the things you can control -- your thoughts and your actions. Though the future is uncertain, one thing about it is abundantly clear. The more positively and completely you make full use of the present, the more positive options you'll create for yourself no matter what the future brings.

Imagine yourself looking back on today from some point in the future. What will you wish you had done? Now is your one and only opportunity to do it. What will you regret? Now is the time to prevent those regrets.

Rather than setting yourself up to wonder "why didn't I?" work to put yourself in the position of being able to say "I'm glad I did."

-- Ralph Marston

Have a wonderful day and a fabulous week!

Default Monday

Happy Birthday Sef!!

Hello Nascar Girl- you've made the right decision! and this is a great board. We are all here for you, ask any questions you want or just vent, we'll be glad to help when we can.

Frog- I'm IMPRESSED A WHOLE MARATHON! I never did more than 1/2 and can't imagine doing that now. Your question - would I like to try- kept me up half the night. I don't know- I'm 22 years older than when I last ran in one. This is going to take some more thought. I may send you an email with more questions and thoughts...
I have a large standard poodle who is my running mate. She's seven, but very fit, and would rather sprint 5 miles than walk. I've been told that standards act like 2 year olds until they drop dead at 12-14. So far, she's true to breed. They also don't put on weight like labs tend to, so they can remain highly active longer.

Sef- I had to get rid of the scale on a daily basis- my entire mood each day was determined by that stupid #, regardless of what else I did. And the # didn't seem to correspond to either the amount of exercise or food. I know I'm eating right and getting plenty of exercise with weights and running/walking, so the mystery ups and downs have to be hormonal. Tho I do admit to being a salt junkie. It was just infuriating to watch the # go up, even slightly, when I know what I'm doing is right. So weighing myself less, or not at certain times, is the answer for me.

Just a quicky post- a few things I was thinking about last night. Will try to post after work.

Thank you all for being out there!

Thumbs down Hello from NC!

I just spent some time reading all the posts last week from Thursday on--WOW. I hate it when I'm off the board for more than a day!

First--the reunion was wonderful! It was a very small turnout--actually none of the people I hung out with in HS showed--but I had a blast talking to people I wouldn't have talked to otherwise! I did smooch and dance a lot! It was good to see how folks are doing after 25 years!

As for Saturday--It was a good day for me--Auburn was victorious over those annoying cowbells and my beloved NC STate beat Wake Forest.

BOB--I offer condolences on Sat. I don't guess I mentioned that I got an MA degree from UGA--so I had to root for them Dawgs on Saturday. That's ok--Auburn has to play Florida on Saturday--they've been awesome in their last games.

Gator--I have reserved a spot for you in the Church parking lot--I will email with directions and the magic code words.

Deb--I'm gald you had a good birthday. My 40th was horrid--my "friends" tortured me for an entire month--black flowers--black armbands--a cake with black icing--a black wreath on my offcie door, etc. But I have to say that I've enjoyed being in my 40s. I hope you do too!

SEF--I laughed when I got the card. I just thought you'd mixed up the 9/3 of my brithday with 10/3. Of course one musn't take senility too lightly!

Frog--I will, in fact, be in the Burlington Area sometime Friday or Saturday morning. I have a family wedding in Greensboro on Saturday. I'd love to see you!

Welcome Newcomers!

Sparkle--It was great to hear from you!

I hope everyone else has a good week. There is no relaible scale here so I won't be weighing until I go home--but I've been good so I'm not worried!

Default Happy Monday!

Hello Ladies. I hope that everyone had a good weekend. Mine was okay. Got to spend some quality time with the dh.

I got my fill of comfort food and am back on the path to loss. Thanks to all of you for your kind words.

Happy Birthday SEF! Hope you have a great one.

BOB - Sprry about your loss. I'll be right there in mrning with you next weekend when my Noles get the tar beat out of them by Miami.

Frog - Good luck with the marathoning. I wish I could run, but I have bad ankles and knees. Just now trying to get back to walking, if even just a little bit.

Nascar Girl - Welcome!

Well, that's about it for me right now. Will check back in later. I'm hoping to have good news to report on WIW.

Default Stinky Mondays

Boy - I should have stayed at home. I am in such a fowl mood. I hate to start a week this way!! I was OK until I found about 3 different people who dropped the ball on some important issues that were high priority here at work on Friday!! I have chewed several people out this morning!! I don't like to be that way, but good gracious, seems like folks could at least do what they say they are going to do!!! OK - I'm taking a deep breath now, in ---- out.

The weekend was pretty good. Little man's team placed 3rd in the coach pitch tournament. He got a medallion and is so very proud of it . Big un' got another hit on Sat. , they lost the game, but are still in contention. We play at 5:30 and if we win we go straight to the championship game at 7pm (possible double header on a school night, what fun! ) Oh well, after tonight things should return to "normal", if there is such a thing when you have kids!!

I'll check back later and maybe be in a little better frame of mind. Thanks for listening to my "venting"!!

Nascar. Welcome. I've been to Newnan before. We have relatives in Carrollton and we have often stayed at a wonderful B & B in Senoia. You have a cute little town.

Fillise--Thanks for the reservation. If you can, will you send me the directions no later than tomorrow. We are leaving here first thing Wed. morning. I'm really happy about the chance to check out the town of Auburn.

BOB--After looking at some of the replays of the UT-UGA game, I think the UT boys played great. But that call by Fulmer to squib that kick at the end of the game was not a great decision. All it did was allow GA to get the ball in good field possession--as we all found out. I think it was coaching error that led to that loss. Just MHO. What do you think?

My company is out for most of the day, so have a little time to spend on the board. Have to also check my e-mail. Happy B-day Sef.

Well, gonna go to the store. We are taking a picnic lunch for our drive up to Ga. Poached salmon, roasted veggies, hummus and pita, fruit, etc. Have a great day, all my SB friends.

Where's Debbie?????? This isn't like you at all.....Did you decide to start training for the marathon, too??

I'm STILL WAITING BY THE PHONE!!! I think I'm gonna call and say that when they said they would be making a decision by Friday did that mean if I didn't get a call on Friday that I don't get the job....I don't wanna be a pain, but this is killing me.

I'm sooooo sad for my BULLDAWGS!!!!!!!! and BOB'S BIG ORANGE TEAM NO ONE likes losing at the end of the game like that! What a heart breaker! I haven't talked to my parents yet, I'm sure they're just crushed. My mom used to be a secretary in the football recruiting office and the faculty sponsor for the Bulldog Hostesses who escort potential signees around the campus. So, a loss is a little more personal since she's so close to all the coaches. Meister is in shock that USC is 5-0 and actually RANKED this year.....he keeps saying, "Are you sure they're talking about the GAMECOCKS???" :LOL:

Well, I'm gonna go send out some more resumes and check on a rhubarb pie I'm making for a friend's birthday. I'll be back on later.

NASCAR GIRL WELCOME TO THE BOARD!!! You've certainly come to the right place!! I'm a pretty big NASCAR fan myself. When I was a sales rep I had several NASCAR fan accounts and I always finagled some way to take at least one of them to a race each year in Daytona. Once you see it live it's totally addictive!!

Have a great afternoon!

Hey All

Wasn't intentionally MIA today, started this post this morning but was having computer trouble and wasn't able to get it posted, so here it is, after 6pm and I'll just continue where I left off

Got in my 4.5 mile walk/jog this morning while breaking in a new pair of sneakers. Luckily, not to bad in the blister department-will put a little moleskin on those spots tomorrow and should be fine.

TOM ended yesterday, saw the scale go down 1/2lb today, but still up 1.5lbs from all time low. It was wonderful not to have the scale go above 125 this time around. As long as I can keep it between 119-124, I'll be happy with my weigh ins.

It's funny. The size 6 Calvins my Aunt bought me about 5 years ago fit me nicely when I was 129lbs back that one time in my life I had reached that weight-now, here I am thinner as far as the scale says, and they barely fit me now-boy, does gravity and time play cruel tricks on one's body! Either that, or they didnt fit as good as I thought and just can't remember that far back-this, a cruel trick on the mind! LOL!!!

QUESTION: Everyone I've heard from is in agreement in regards to the STORY BOARD. I'd like your input if you think we should keep the board titled MY STORY and then each of us, individually, can come up with a catchy titled for our own story, OR should we name the board something more catchy and post stories with no catchy titles, or with catchy titles? PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR INPUT!!!!

SEF, I'm sure those pants will be dropping off of your sooner than you think! That is, unless you are like me and get stretchy pants that fit snug from day one-I can wear the same pants I wore 20-30 pounds ago easily! Saves me from having to buy multiple sizes!!!

NASCAR GIRL, WELCOME TO THE BOARDS! Glad you have decided to join us Thanks for posting your BIO on the BIO BOARD as well, it's always nice to learn more about the members here on the board. Where is NEWNAN, GA?? Don't hesitate to ask the gals here questions, you will always get an answer!!!! Again, WELCOME!

MEL, I highly recommend you try to see if your library has GET THE SALT OUT, it may help the salt junkie in you. Another great book by the same author, GET THE SUGAR OUT is good too.

FILLISE, so glad to see you checking in while on vacation-we do miss you when you go away like this! Thank goodness I didn't have all that black stuff for my birthday, no, my family was more refined, thank goodness-guess it helped me accept it easier. Honestly, when I stop and think about it, I may be older, but I sure as heck weigh less than I ever have since around 6-7th grade, and I sure as heck can do some running, something I could NEVER do even in elementary school!!! I hope you and FROG can connect again when you're in her area-if you do, hugs to each other from me

LIZ, what's new with you???

JMUIR, glad to see you are back on track, always feels better when you're on course than when you go off plan, doesn't it?

TV, sorry to see you having a sucky Monday! Hope things turned out better as the day progressed.

GATOR, your picnic lunch sounds like a gourmet meal!

SOL, you make me feel so good-you missed me! Was here but just couldn't get my post up for some reason. Did you ever call about the job?? Rhubarb, I don't believe I've ever had that-what does it taste like?

(wrote this this morning-did get some stuff done and Michael is using his punching bag as I click away on the keys) Okay, I guess I should go do something constructive. I was actually in the back patio trying to clear some of the crap for my impending garage sale so Michael could go work out out there-he's been begging me to clean part of it up and there was so much crap out there he couldn't do his punching bag-so he should be happy when he comes home-but there is sooo much more to do out there, gosh, where in the world did all this crap come from????

I'll check in with you all later. REMINDER, TOMORROW NIGHT IS CHAT AT 9:15PM EST Hope you can all make it!!!!

Hi All!
Well almost thru the day! So far so good I did my 50 min Yoga conditioning for weight loss this AM since I had the Holiday off and have done well today. Thanks for the warm welcome!!

Debelli - Newnan is about 30 minutes south of the Atlanta Airport off I-85 South. It's convienant to Atlanta & Alabama. It is the City of Homes and of course Alan Jackson is from here! He's coming home the last weekend in October to do a fund raiser concert here at Newnan High. He comes home every Christmas. Yep he wears that white cowboy hat!

Sho - I love Daytona! We go every year to the 500! You are so right once you go you are definately hooked! Getting ready to go to Talledega in 2 weeks!

Day 1 down! So far so good!!
Have a great evening everyone!!

Talking baaack

Glad to hear youíre doing well and thanks for the ďStrong WomenĒ reference.

I must admit, I liked Kermit too, but your new avatar has character and since itís a work in progress, it will be interesting to see what develops. Thanks for the update on your cronies! Iíll be rooting for ya on Jan, thatís the exact day that I end my 12 week Body for Life program that I restarted today. So we will compare notes then. Hey I remember Enterprise had a good band! I lived in a neighboring town, Ozark, AL for 8 years. I went to Carroll High School.

I canít believe you donít wear tucked-in shirts! I should give you a homework assignment to put on something clingy and post a picture of yourself. Oh and BTW, thanks for posting all the pics!

Random thought: this morning as I was sitting downstairs, I saw a girl with my body type when I was very heavy. She was taller but otherwise looked exactly like me: heavy on the top and belly with absolutely no *** to speak of. She was wearing jeans that were at least two, maybe three sizes too tight so that even though she was wearing a loose shirt, I could see a huge, painful over-spill of her belly. Itís a little smug to say this, but I could see she was very uncomfortable and it made me realize how different my life is now from before, even though Iím still impatient with myself.

End random thought. So you are a size 6, which is still a far-away fantasy for me. I will be happy with whatever the scale says when I can get into a size 6 (probably a 6 to 8 on the top because I donít think itís physically possible for me to fit into some size 6 tops ever). But for me itís the opposite. There was only one time in my life when I ever was remotely smaller and that was when I was 16 and the Dreadful Crash Diet. I starved myself down to what I thought was 135 pounds, but I think that must have been a trick of the mind too. It had to be more like 140 or so. Because I starved and had no muscle tone to speak of, I barely fit into a size 12 (plus I think sizes were smaller back then?) The minute I fit into a size 12 I started gaining again. Now Iím 145 (drum roll) and wear a size 10, loose on the bottom. I think there has been a definite change of body composition.

MY STORY INPUT Yes, I like the idea of a simple title for the thread, and a creative title for each story. That would give the spotlight to individual members.

Congrats to Justin!!! I know all about being blind. I didnít get glasses until I was 12.

I meant to tell you last time, that when I first saw your picture, I thought, ďShe is so . . . GLAMOUROUS!!!! Seriously. You look fab. (I already knew Debbie and Lara were hotties from previous pics.)

RING darnit RING!!!

Iíve been looking for that marathon date of Froggieís too so now I finally have it. I wrote it in my calendar.

I think the Kona Ironman was last weekend? Is that right? I heard they are billing it as the first International major sporting event since Sept 11th. Whoohoo. I have never been to the Big Island! But I purchased one of those time share presentation package deals so I will be going soon (more below).

Sorry to hear about the death in your family.

You can join the club with the scale obsession. I think Iíve been doing pretty good compared to before though (more below) Those plums sound yummy. I like your avatar.

Five miles WITH hills? Iím way impressed.

Howís the gym going?

Good luck with the swimming pool in the basement!

I think youíll get back to your lowest weight soon. Seems so difficult in the 140s to budge even a pound. Thanks for asking about the gym, but I did go back (again, see my rambling below)

A mostly likely belated welcome to the board and congrats on the jeans. My bestest bud in the world has a 7 year old and a 4 year old, they are growing up so fast.

Hope everythingís okay with guests in the house! That didnít work out for us last time.

Hope to see you back soon!

Iím sorry to hear you took a spill on your bike especially because I can relate. But I usually donít have a good reason to fall though, Iíve fallen on cracks in the sidewalk! My last spill was really bad. I scraped all kinds of places and messed up my shoulders for months. And all I did was slide on a patch of gravel. Clumsy. But Iíve been doing a lot better lately.

Look forward to meeting you if you come to Hawaii this summer. Heck, everyone should come to Hawaii now that airfare is so low!

Progress not perfection! I used to LOVE beer, it was really hard to give it up at first. Now I donít even drink alcohol at all...kinda weird for the Town Drunk of Waikiki (for a brief moment in time).

Nascar Girl

Glad the reunion went well and nice to hear from you too!

Whew! Did I do good???

Okay, obviously Iím doing well because Iím posting. Tend to isolate otherwise. Which doesnít help.

MIRACLE #1: I went to the gym again, fighting myself tooth and nail to get out of bed at 5:30. Did 3 miles at a moderate pace (34 minutes) and felt really good. I want to do the Body for Life challenge again. So Iím eating many, small meals again. Surprised that I can actually be full on a small amount of food! Iíve gotten so out of touch.

MIRACLE #2: I actually managed to DROP my scale obsession for weeks, didnít care what I weighed. Iíve been so obsessed lately and the scale hasnít budged. Well I went to the gym so automatically I weighed myself (besides I had to for the challenge) and it was 145. Weird. Itís almost like, not real.

MIRACLE #3 I have a project, maybe a book, that Iím working on involving my journals over the years, and have been ďmeaning toĒ go through them and get things sorted out in my head, kinda exorcise my demons, for months now. Well this past week and especially over the weekend, I got a REAL start! I started with the early stuff, writing stuff out by hand and then actually typing up almost 20 pages. Before getting to the really difficult parts. I donít know if this is something Iím going to publish, but itís something I feel compelled to do.

Okay, I gotta go. Itís a no-no for me to use my lunch hour to post but I really wanted to get in touch with yaíll.

Much aloha,
