Afraid I'm still pretty sick -- but I'm definitely here in Spirit.

Hi ladies, Sorry I have been MIA. After the death of my friend I have been totally out of focus. Not even interested in eating right. Did keep exercising until last week. Only made it twice, but found out I have a fracture in my right foot. So it is only upper body stuff for awhile. That had me bummed out too. So I am tired of watching the scale creep up and the clothes getting tighter so I am back here and back on a plan. 2 days under my belt so far and many ahead I hope.

Meowee, take care of yourself. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Toni, sounds like you have had a house full of company. Always fun, but good to see them go too.

Ellen, hope your knee gets better soon. IMy plan is to go to my Dd's as soon as their water warms up and swim. It will be easier on my feet and knees and something I like to do.

Talitha, Wow BL Atlanta sounds great. I wish we had one. Or maybe we do. How do I find out?? I love that show. I saved the last one just for motivation. Those people are unbelievable. If I could just have a fraction of their drive I would be fine.

Lisa, exercise can be fun. Just have to find something you like to do and set your mind toit.

Petsitter. Glad you are over withdrawl. Try to stay OP and don't cheat. That is my advice. It is so much easier if you don't start little cheats. Plan ahead at all times. Good luck to you.

My DD (youngest) is trying to buy a condo. I will have an empty nest again. But I feel it is time. I will miss here dearly, but it will be good for her. She is a lot of company to me.

Got to get started on this crazy job. Busy bidding jobs all week keeps my swamped. Take care and I promise to get her more often.

Hello everyone. Been watching the dang rain out. We've sure had our fair share of it. I haven't even gotten my tomato plants out yet. But hopefully this week end. Eating hasn't been good but really did do a little better today. Hopefully I'm slowly climbing back on the wagon. My main thing is I need to get on the treadmill.

Solly- I'm so sorry everything has been so hard for you. Sounds like you've really had a rough time. Well we know we can do this. So here we go again dear friend.

Meowee- Hope you get well soon. And get back with us.


Guess I'd better get off here their are some thunder boomers out there.

HELP ME!! My best friend came over to borrow my scale. I dusted it off and got on. 190!!! Holy Toledo!! I took off my coat and it was down to 185, but STILL!! I am totally out of control. To think a couple years ago I was in the 160's and just into a size 12. I'm so out of control. I just had two handfuls of Mike and Ikes. What's wrong with me? I have to beg my husband to stop buying things like that and bringing them home. It's just not good.

May has been HECTIC!! Mother's Day, Shelley's birthday, my anniversary, Shelley was confirmed, memorial day parade for Shelley. And...the best news...my son won the district-wide SPELLING BEE!! Last year he came in third and this year first place was a piece of cake for him!!

Shelley started with a new therapist that is doing Art therapy with her. Interesting. She's struggling to get through the material she missed for the two months she was out, but her medication is doing the trick for her. The school is worthless. There is a federal law that states that if a student is out for more than two weeks with a doctor's note, they school has to provide them with homebound instruction (a tutor). BAsically, the teachers and the principal don't believe she has a problem, so they just said no. I'm so mad. They refuse to help her get caught up by teaching her the material she missed. I have Shelley's confirmation teacher teaching it to her because she's a retired high school teacher. Thank God for her or she would get nothing. It's been so stressful. I can't wait till this year's over. She might need summer school.

Anyhow...May will be over shortly and then maybe I can be more active here. I have to do something about my weight. It just seems like there is no time to do anything....shop for decent food, exercise...

Calgon! Take me away!!

Hello all,

Techwife, good luck with everything. When it rains it pours. Best
wishes to Shelley. I hope your family/community/church/school or
whatever it takes can help her catch up or even get a bit ahead
before school restarts in the fall. She deserves a good launch to
the next year.

Toni, good luck with the plantings and with your eating/exercise plan.

I've been keeping off the sugars, but not sure if I'm doing enough to
avoid calories overall. I've been eating too much cheese, and my
lunches (curries of beans and veg at an indian place) are probably
hiding a fair amount of oil. But still, I've quit all snacking, my
breakfasts and dinners are really low-cal and low-sugar. I've been
doing some serious exercise the last 2 months, but only once a week.
I'm pretty proud of my last couple weeks.

My scale weight is definitely up from 159 to 162, over the last few
weeks, but my measurements are slightly better (!), so I think I'm
building muscle. I'll count it as a tentative win, but in the future
I'd really like to see the scale moving down if I'm supposedly moving
the right direction.

I'm really hoping that my current lifestyle turns out to be a long-
term weight-loss situation (in other words, a maintenance diet for
somebody lighter), because if I have to restrict more than this....
ugh.....I don't see how I'll be able to keep it up life-long.

Lisa

Another little . . . I'm still suffering from the same combination of Pneumonia and Asthma but the doctor has finally decided to refer me to a Respiratory Disease Specialist (first appointment with the new guy on Thursday) and also is sending me for a CAT scan next Monday. Guess my constant at-home-cat-scanning routines are not getting the job done.

Hello everyone. Here is a new week. Eating has been good today. But I'm just not ready to start walking yet.

Meowee-So sorry you're still sick and having such a hard time. Prayers are with you.

Lisa- Good luck with trying to eat right.

Hey ladies. just checking in. Today was our 3rd weigh in (second week) of the Atlanta Mommas Bigest Loser. I've lost TEN POINT TWO POUNDS IN TWO WEEKS!!! I feel like a million bucks.

Here's what I'm doing:
100+oz water EVERY day
1 serving of carbs per day and it needs to be before 3pm (unless we have company)
ABSOLUTELY nothing goes in my mouth after 8pm except for water, hot tea, celery(I really just love celery. I'm weird like that)
a grapefruit for breakfast every morning with an egg (scrambles with veggies or boiled) I love grapefruit and never buy it for myself. It feels like a treat
watching portions sizes

As far as exercise, I joined a Bootcamp style workout in my neighborhood. 6am M-F and still do cardio 3-4 days a week for 30 minutes.

Anyway. I'm excited about being in the 180's for the first time in 4 years, but I don't intend to stay there for long. It's nice to fit into 12's, but I want 10's!!!

Good morning ladies.

Crazy here at work. Today is bid day and it will be awful. We need work desparately and we are bidding everything under the sun which keeps me swamped.

I am proud to say my weekend was very decent on eating. Had oatmeal for breakfast, grilled chicken (plain) from Chick-FilA, dinner was a grilled chicken salad. Sunday was eggs and microwace bacon, steak for dinner, (yuk) asparagus, peas. My only problem was I went to get a grilled chicken sadwich for lunch at Wendy's but did not have as much money as I thought so I just ended up with a small hamburger on the dollar menu. Only had a couple drinks each day. So for me, it was a pretty good weekend and the scale was not up on Monday. So far so good this week. Logging all my food for the last 2 weeks has helped. I don't think I eat enough, but it is hard to eat enough "good" things. Been to the gym 5 days a week if only for 30 minutes each day. Saturday I did swim laps and did some exercises in the pool. I may go to my DD's and do the same tomorrow night.

Toni, Seems we are off to a good start. We can do this. Now start back on that if even for 15 minutes.

Lisa. I'm with you. It is hard to eat enough good things. So much easier to eat junk food. My scale isn't moving much either, but definately seeing some decrease due to toning or muscle.

Tech, so gladyou are back on here. Sorry that your weight is up but maybe it will keep you here. It takes some serious soul earching to get ready to do this. Glad things are better with Shelley. It is horrible about the school not helping her. Sure glad there are good people in this world. We are right there at the same weight so lets do this together and see how far we can go.. I was at 183 this morning. You have to decide you are important and make time your you.

Talitha, WOW! you are getting great exercise. Don't see how you find the time. But it is great. I too love grapefruit and celery. Don't know you if you take any meds, but grapefruit can interfere with them. I only have them on the weekends or for lunch (4 hours after taking my meds). Keep up the good work. You will probably be out of the 180's before me with all that working out.

Ellen< Hope things are going well with you. Been in that pool yet?

Country, where are you?????

Got to run pay some bills before it gets crazy here.

Hello! I have been busy as usual, and just not spending much time away from a game I play online!

The water has warmed up enough to swim tolerably, so we have been in the pool a good bit the last few days. I did about 30 minutes of water aerobics yesterday morning. Today, I may not get in since we had to shock the pool yesterday. There were some friends over swimming Sunday and Monday and yesterday, and the heavy bather load just dirties the water....so you shock it to clean it out again. (higher levels of chlorine)

I am having a big dinner party here next Monday, then flying to Chicago for my sisters doctorate party. I come back on Tuesday the following week, and have a wedding cake to do for that Saturday. I will be scarce!

MEOWEE: Dear! Please take care of yourself. Keep us posted on what the doctors say.

TECH: Hop on the wagon, dear. You can do it!

SOLLY: I am sorry you have had such grief. I just can't imagine how hard it must be to lose a friend like that! I am glad you are back on the wagon! You have always been an inspiration to me!

TONI: Hope you are well!

LISA: Its good to be off the sugars! But do watch the starches if you want to lose. I love Indian foods! Curries are SO good!

TALITHA: Boot Camp sounds so much fun! You are doing wonderfully! Let me know if you want to meet at the market ever. I need to go end of this week to shop for my dinner party...but it may be a fast trip since I have so much to do. Maybe when I get back from Chicago?

Take care my friends!

Good afternoon. Sitting here drinking a Fiber One lemonade fiber drink. Don't know if it will help or not but thought I would try it. Eating has been okay. Better on the week end. Its kind of quiet here but glad about all that since my company has left.

Talitha- Congrads on the weight loss. You rock girl.

Ellen- My goodness you're busy. Hope you take a little time to rest. I would love to taste a curry.


Well better run the Leeann is here to help me with cleaning the house.
