Pooch - is Macinaw island in Virginia? I loved "Somewhere in Time" so much! The scenery was so beautiful, I figured it was a set! And it's still preserved? Makes me want to take a little trip. Even though "SIT" is a chick flick, my DH liked it. Although, he doesn't watch it over and over again like I do.

Another old romance movie - "The Two Lives of Jenny Logan" (I think) with Lindsay Wagner? It's about a lady who travels through time when she puts on an old dress, and has to decide which man to stay with (the one in the future, or the one in the past).

DSis and family are coming for Easter! I am so excited! Last time I saw DN, she was just getting the oomph to crawl, and now she's walking! We're going to do a little Easter hunt with her (plastic eggs w/ cheerios). My DH friend at work made Easter eggs into Easter egg piggies (pink w/ tails, and snouts). Her parents own a pig farm. She gave them to another friend w/ little ones. I thought that was so sweet!

I can't have peanut butter anymore! Last year, I had a reaction to almonds, and then got tested for nut allergies. Basically, I'm allergic to them (pb, cashews, almonds, pistachios...) to varying degrees. But, I just couldn't give up PB! Then, I had a reaction to a PB shake, and that did it. I took a Benadryl, pulled out the Epipen, and told my DH to get ready if I needed it, and couldn't do it myself. That was scary. I've had one episode after getting allergy shots that I don't ever want to repeat. So all my PB recipes have been crossed off.

Just a quickie, I so want to catch up, but my subs want to be paid. Maybe I can get on after the kids go to bed tonight. Michael has an ear infection. At least it's an identifiable problem and won't cause him to be any sicker than he has already been. Hopefully the ear drops will help breakdown the stuff inside his ears and the tubes will finally come out (it's been 15 months). I don't quite understand, but who am I to question the one-eyed monster, I weigh 164.5 today. After a day of bad eating yesterday, I sure was expecting the worst! My bestfriend made it known to me last night that he noticed I had gained in my abdomen and that after his wife has her baby, he's going to "get my bu** back in shape" Although done poorly, it was his way of saying that he's worried about me. I must get back to work. Hope your weeks aren't too rocky and you are eating well.

just a quickie. congrats to all you losers today. Keep up the good work. those that maintained you have nothing to feel bad about. you gainers, well theres always next week.

Vesnoid - I had to cut my mexican heather back as the last frost that blew in killed it. luckily there was new growth at the bottom. in a couple of months it will look like good as new.

Zanne - Im about 5' 5 1/2" . It would be good to have a buddy help me stay motivated. I get so discouraged sometimes. Its like I take 1 step forward and 3 steps back.

Gator - went out to play golf today, and it was like I had never picked up a club. Both holes were Par 36 and I ended up with a
58 on front 9 and 59 on back 9. Dont know what happened.

Well guess I better sign of for now. Have to get ready to do my weight routine. gotta build those muscles to lose the fat.

dorkey chicken head

dont really like that name so I will stick with either catlover or golfing gal

Just got back from the gym and on the way home I bought my first scale. I think Deb inspired me with all that scale talk!

It's hard to see my precise weight, but I'm easily 158 or 158.5 which means I've lost a bit more since monday with a total loss of 2.5-3lbs the first week!

I'm so impressed with all you guys. It really feels great to be connecting with other people who are in the same boat I am.

Enough sap. Does anyone know what a good number of protein and carbs are for each day? Like fat should be roughly between 30-45 grams a day. I want to make sure I'm getting enough of everything.

Thanks and Good Luck!!!

Good Evening All

This is going to be quick, just so much to do still and no time to do it in!!!

Had a very nice, but all too short, day with MEL. She's such a doll and I really enjoyed every minute we spent together today.

I picked her up at 11am and we hit Atlantic Hosiery where they have the cheapest undergarments around. She found some things, I didn't buy anything, though I did try on a bra and can now say I am a "C" cup.

Right afterwards was lunch at OLE OLE. We both had the COBB SALAD along with their wonderful salsa. MEL was so sweet and treated me for lunch

After lunch, we went to the HFS where she bought a few goodies and then headed over to CARBOLITE where the owner had MINT under my request It was delicious and I do believe MEL like it too!

Afterwards we headed back to pick up her DS Andres who is so cute, has such a peaches and milk complexion. We headed over to SAWGRASS MILLS MALL in two cars so they could stay since I had to leave early. MEL found some great looking SAUCONY sneakers. I may go back at a later date and buy some, they were very comfy. We stayed together for a bit before parting so her and Andrew could go to GAMEWORKS (video place like Dave and Busters).

Too short of a time, but I am thrilled to have finally met MEL. Let me tell you, that woman is FIT! You should see her calve muscles-like a rock! She looks wonderful in cap sleeves and shorts-makes me jealous I can't wear stuff like that! She's doing very well on BFL and it shows. If you ever have the opportunity to meet MEL in PA or anywhere else she may travel to, please do, you'll love her!!!!!

Oh, I can't forget, she was so sweet to bring me stuff from TRADER JOES!!! I requested a few things and she brought one thing I hadn't requested that must be new- a HUGE 70% CHOCOLATE BAR!!!! It's TJ'S BRAND from BELGIUM and is a little over a pound-YUM!!!!!!!!!

Oh yes, and we took pics!!!!

MEL, when you get home and read this-THANK YOU SO MUCH ONCE AGAIN!!!!

MONET, got your numbers, will call if I find we will be going through Atlanta. THANKS!


Gals, I have NO time to even read the board, have to go start some laundry. If I can I will try to do so tomorrow.

Please remember TOMORROW IS RECIPE DAY!!!! If you have any SB LEGAL RECIPES you'd like to share with the board, please try to post them tomorrow!!


Sb since 3/22/00
Reached goal 6/10/01

Real Quick - just to report on WIW. I like yesterday's better: 164! Today it was 165. At least my demon scales were in a better mood than past weigh-ins! I gotta run to orchestra practice.

Thumbs down no loss (sad face)

hi everyone,

have not posted in a while and barely made it to chat this week. have had a rather busy and stressful week, so was not surprised with no loss.

my friend and i have been trading babysitting for spring break, i took the kids to see ET, i liked it evenbetter the second time with my daughter. i bought a bag of reeses pieces for them to share and some nuts and sf russell stover choco pb things for me. they were impressedwith the reeses which i made them wait until ET had them in the movie! unfortunately the combo of nuts and the sf choco stuff made me very ill, no more of that for me!

my son is having a bad week, one of his "friend-girls" was killed in a head on collision monday nite on one of the worst roads in the area 192, a very dangerous 2-lane highway that connects orlando and the melbourne area where we live,very sad. then this week he got hurt in football practice, he was the starting right tackle at the University of Central Florida he tore his ACL
in his left knee and will have surgery monday morning. i will be over there of course monday and tuesday. i may call you sonya as the surgery center is on aloma somewhere. no matter how old they are you still worry about your kids.

i have a doctors appt in the am, girl stuff and i am holding about a gallon of water or at least it feels like it. my sugar is good but i am soooo tired.

will probably just lurk again this week, hope everyone has a good week, hi to all the new gals!

Hi everyone!
Trying to get caught up. Miss a day here, miss alot!!! Uneventful week - weight stayed the same.

Gottabeme: Good luck with your fertility journey. Low carb eating really is a big first step. The other thing is Glucophage. Do you have high blood sugar?

Jack- I think that vitamin B6 is a natural diuretic. Also water with lemon. Good luck!

Music:Congrats on your loss! Why is that 2 lbs coming off is so much more exciting than 2 lbs going on!

Sol: Don't "fret" over your loss of weight loss - you are determined girl and you will drop those lbs all of a sudden! Did you have a wicked storm last night? We had thunder, lighting, hail and terrential rain! We needed that rain desperately. Crusty Diaperbrain is not the most attractive name in the world is it, but it's better than girdle sniffer! Also I wanted to ask you have you read the book - What your doctor may not tell you about pre-menopause by Dr. Lee? You might find it helpful - talks alot about hormones and things.

Trish: For a couple of days following surgery, don't worry about your food intake. Your body has been through stress and as long as you don't go crazy you'll be ok - eat sensibly but if you need some saltine crackers, have them. If you need soda to settle your stomach, have regular not diet. Also, drink lots of water post op and you'll flush out that anesthesia quicker. Ask doc to give you something for nausea.

Toni: Congratulations on your loss!!! Keep up the good work and you'll hit that goal in no time. Thank you for your well wishes.

Tree: I love movies like that - Somewhere in Time is one of my favorites!

BKM: Chris, I am so sorry for all you are going thru! I hope your son does well in surgery and will be back to normal quickly. What kind of recovery time is it? I am sorry about his friend's death. My thoughts and prayers will be with you.

Vesna: I have to ask you, since you are not losing and I did meet you - maybe your body is at an ideal weight for you. I thought you looked nice and thin! Maybe you should consider yourself on maintenance. I know thats not what you want to hear. But you are already thin!!!!! :: Thank you for your well wishes!

Deb: have a great trip and leave the scale at home!

To anyone I missed, I apologize. Have a great week!

Hey chics!

I just couldn't stay away! I took a break from my packing to check in!

Thanks to all of you for the congrats today! I do feel much better than last week! I hope I can keep motivated - that is the key factor!

GOTTA: Trust me - you are not alone with the fertility factor on this board! I too am trying to lose so that my fertility specialist will do hormone treatments on me. He doesn't want to "work with me" until I lose a substantial amount of weight. I am getting ready to start the adoption classes in April so that I'll be certified to adopt. Can you believe that people like us have to be certified to adopt but they let crack head losers have custody of their children - IMAGINE THAT?!? It just pisses me off! We are starting this process but we always have the hope of having one of our own - I have had 5 miscarriages over the last 5 years and it has been a roller coaster ride from ****. But, each one has made me stronger and I'm not giving up hope! There are times when I just feel like the world hates me and I wonder what I have done to have to endure such pain - then - I just try to gather my thoughts and lean on my friends and the people that love me and are here for me! So, whenever you are down there are MANY of us here that are going through or have gone through your same ordeals and we are here for you! So - when you start that period and you want to scream - we are here for you so scream away! If ever you want to talk - get my e-mail from DEB or BOB - they both have it - sometimes you just have to vent!!!

QUIVONDRA: Great job on that loss - aren't you glad you bought that scale?!?!

OK - well, I saw that many of you were big LOSERS today - WAY TO GOOOOO!!!! Fired up!!! Let's keep up the good work girls! We'll be fine before we know it!!! Gotta run!

I'll try to check in once before I leave for the camp - I just can't stay away from you gals!! I don't know what I'm gonna do for the weekend!!

Red face WEd night

Hello everyone!

It is the end of a long day, but my cup of green tea and a visit to the SB board seems like a good way to close it out!

Ok Deb--I got up to 1760 calories today--29% fat/42% carbs/29%protein. Boy did I have to eat to do it. I'm stuffed and miserable--I don't like feeling this way, but we'll see what happens with the scale in the next few days.

Krogers finally got in the oat bran sticks. I didn't realize they were sweet (sweetened with agave), you are right, I think they will make an excellent cheesecake crust!

Bigkmomma--I'm so sorry to hear about your son's torn ACL. The bigger they are the harder they fall, so I suspect the big Kinght will be very glad to have his momma with him on Monday. I'll be thinking about you both!

Toni--Lunch WAS a buffet so I was able to do ok! I just hate these luncheons where you are at the mercy of someone else. I have church dinners like that every week. Most of the time the women who cook will look out for me, but every now and then we hit a week where there is nothing I can eat.

Trish--I had knee surgery last summer and I also have an awful time with anesthesia (I get overcome with waves of nausea for several days afterwards). Right after I woke up I was nauseated and tried to drink water--but was feeling worse. I finally took a sip of sprite and the nausea subsided right away. (This is after I had grilled the nurses about the contents of my IV solution before the surgery). Anyway, I figure with the stress your body goes through with surgery--your blood sugar is bound to do some funny things--so if you need the coke or sprite take just a sip or two. I only did that while in the recovery room--after I got home I would eaither sit real still or lie down until it subsided. You can make a soup out of star pastina (a type of pasta--38 on the GI)and chicken broth. It will stay on your stomach when other things won't.

Monet--we'll see what happens with the calorie intake. I do beleive you have to eat enough--I just thought 1400-1500 would be enough. I'll up it for a few days and see what happens! Belle was destructo-kitty today. She tried to get into my yogurt container and knocked over a lamp and table and got yogurt everywhere--even in an extension cord that then started sizzling. I had to turn of the power before I could unplug it. She has a lot of Siamese in her. He little mates had the siamses coloring, but Belle is all black! I don't even want to think about what it would be like if I brought another cat into this house!

Sol--My green tea is stuff I buy in Chinatown when I visit New York. I suspect it has caffeine, but it doesn't bother me. I usually drink a cup or two and night and sleep like a baby. In fact, I think I'm off to make another cup!

Night everyone! There were some great losers today--congrats to everyone!

Hi Everybody!!!

Here's another quick check in. Gosh, I'm feeling guilty. But here's what's going on. DH took off yesterday for st. Louis to play music with his bros. He does this about three times a year. He has a great time, but it's a lot of work to get him ready. That's why I've been absent. So anyways, my parents came over yesterday and will spend the weekend here with me so that I don't have to be all by myself (with Maddie, of course). So we will have a good visit. On Friday DB, DSIL & DNiece are coming over too to spend the night. So I will have a house full for just the one night and most of the day Saturday.

My eating has been really good. Although yesterday we did hit our favorite Indian restaurant for lunch. Confession: I ate the naan. I couldn't help myself, it's so soft and fresh and warm and good. But got back on track for the rest of the day. Also I had bought regular ice cream for a treat for my parents, because that's their normal evening snack. Well, I stuck to having one of my SF ice cream bars and passed on the mint chocolate chip. I was pretty proud of that.

WIW was good for me. It's hard to read my scale, but I'm not at a solid 5 pounds loss since three weeks ago. So at least the needle is moving in the right direction. Congrats to all who lost. Congrats to those who gained for not giving up and keeping on going. You'll get there.

I've made two goals. I'll turn 45 in November and I'd like to lose 25 pounds by then. I think that is reasonable. That's about 3 pounds a month. Then my second long-range goal is to be at my goal by this time next year. Our wedding anniversary is April 13 and it would be great to have that next 25 off by then.

So, I haven't had a minute to post or read the posts. It's driving me crazy because I know things are happening and I'm missing it!!! ARGHHHHHH!!! Hopefully life will settle down in a few days and I'll have time to get back into the swing of things. SOL, did you get your puppy? FILLISE, what are oat sticks??? DEB, has Lauren come down off her cloud yet at being accepted. I got her thank you note. What a sweetie she is!!!

Bye all. Please hang in there with me. I am thinking of you all.

Absent, but not absent in spirit,

I was naughty last night... I did not eat anything off program, just too much of what was on! I made fried chicken breasts, using ww pastry flour, and then I decided to make biscuits to go with the gravy made with the ww pastry flour, and I have to admit, it was really delicious! Worth every bite! Thank the Lord I don't have to get on the scale for a few days!

BIGKMOMMA: I am so sorry to hear about your son's friend. It is so hard on a kid, no matter what their age, to lose a friend like that. My daughter's best friend was killed in a horrible accident a year and a half ago, and she had a very rough time dealing with it. Then to have the football injury on top of the shock of losing a friend, I am sure it has been hard on him, and when our kids hurt, we hurt. You are in my prayers and thoughts, as well as your son and his surgery. The girls family has a lot to deal with, and it is so painful. Will be thinking of them too.

FILLISE: Maybe two kitties would have been a good idea. Then Miss Belle would have someone to play with, and she would not be destructo-kitty all the time! Oh well, enjoy it. My cat is a big, old yellow tabby. He is very introverted, and rarely wants to be even noticed. He runs from people he does not know, and hides under the sofa when it rains. Such a wimp! When the tornado came through here a couple years ago, he was a basket case..and downstairs in the hallway when we got the kids and came down for safety! Poor thing was shaking like a leaf too!

Guess I will go and post a few recipes now. Later!

Default Good Morning Everyone!!!

Heloo everyone! It is a beautiful day here in Cinci...finally! Not a cloud to be seen for miles. I have no idea how cold it is, but I love the sun.
I have not been posting...I have been really busy.

To all the NEWBIES....HI!!! this really is an awesome place to find advise, encouragemant, and a few laughs.

BKM....Had a nice chat w/ you the other night. I am so sorry to hear that now your son is hurt. That is so rough on a sports player. I hope he is dealing with his friends loss. Like I had said that night, it is so hard to lose someone when you are that young. A family at our church had friends that were killed in a train accident a year ago. They lost their teen son and really affected everyone in our church, but more so the teens because a lot of times they feel they are untouchable (I know mine does). My prayers will be with him during this time. Keep us posted on his surgery.

CM4Him...It was nice to chat with you the other night! Your pictures are nice! You look great!!!!!!!! What an accomplishment to lose that much. How long has it taken you? How long did it take you to go from a 3 to your heavest? I am glad you are healthy now! ED can really take over your life.

Gracious...Hope your hubby is feeling better. He has a busy few days coming up! I bought the 2 VT Bible Heros. They are good because they are long! We have 2 out of the 6 shows that are on them so it is ok. I plan on taking them to church and putting in our "library" so others can use them. Congrats on the new low!!! That is really great. Keep up the hard work.

I had posted yesterday on the WIW board....I am at my goal....130!!! I am so thankful!!!!!!!! Now my final gaol is 125, but I am not sure if I will be able to reach/keep that a real goal. I am almost 5'7"...not 6'7" (lol) so 125 may not be a realistic goal for me. I weighed about 123 after my 5th child, but that was when I was breast feeding.

Too all those who lost...congrats. To those who did not...hang in there!!!

Have a great day everyone!!!

In Him,

Default Thursday

Good morning to all. I made 50 cupcakes yesterday and 2 bundt cakes and didn't lick a spoon once, or my finger! I actually wasn't even tempted, but they did all smell really good just out of the oven. Today I ice them and that will be more tempting to be sure, but I will prevail!

The snow is all gone now thanks to the rain that poured all yesterday. We are due for a nice day tomorrow for Good Friday so that is nice to hear. Last minute preparations are all under way for the service tomorrow..sandwiches, salads and desserts, bulletins, music ....all those details. I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed Good Friday!

I enjoyed seeing the pictures of everybody that were posted. Looks like you had a great time together.

Gotta run and get some things done before the wee baby wakes up!
