Weighed in this morning at 177.2 I'm so close to 175, which was my goal for the competition. I started my TOM yesterday and I'm really bloated and all that jazz. Friday is the last weigh in for the competition and I'm DETERMINED to be at 175. Even if it's 175.8 I WANT that number! But I am still very much in the lead and I think I'm safe.

So, as far as a weekly weigh-in, I will be weighing in on Fridays from here on out. Anyone want to join me?

I was sick over the weekend and didn't log

Today:
B: 1 plum, 1 boiled egg
S: apple
L: tossed salad w/ 3oz grilled chicken, 1/4 c low fat cheese, lettuce, zuccini, mushrooms, balsamic
S: 5 hot wings and a sprite with a few (maybe 7) of Lucas' fries (bad, I know)
D: should be a bowl of cabbage soup I'm making. No more protein for the day.
EXERCISE: Cardio on the elyptical and treadmill, abs.. The reading was at 650 cal burned when I was done.

Solly: How are you feeling? Have you tried Witch Hazel? I know that works for MANY skin rashes and iritations to cool it.

Ellen: You're always having a party! I hope they are moving to year round. We LOVE it!!

Toni: I'm hoping it will rain here tonight. I NEED it!! LOL

Country: I liked FitDay but have found sparkpeople to be much easier to use. I need to get back on that!

Default Good evenin

Long day. My daughter took me shopping for a dress for the baby shower. Let me just tell you, dresses are NOT as forgiving as stretch jeans. The weight I've put on over the last three years is so disheartening and to be a size 14/16 is quite the step backward. Oh well, we can only look forward an not back if we hope to get anywhere. I weigh about 186. I'll make an official weigh in on Friday to be on track with everyone else.

Talitha...Congratulations on your weight loss.

Toni...thank you for your kind words. I wish I didn't cook so well..LOL My hips are HUGE! Of course not walking wouldn't have anything to do with that would it. Wish I had a treadmill. I can't seem to make myself get out in this heat.

Solly...do you eat cooked tomato? You could blend them in a blender or food processor and make either salsa or tomato sauce...just cook them down after you blend them.

Ellen...WTG on the walking.

((Everybody))

God bless,
Crystle

Hello, everyone!

We walked again this morning for about 40 minutes. Its so nice to HAVE to do it! I just could not greet my friend at the door in my nightgown! I have been hopping out of bed as soon as I wake up, getting dressed, and finishing up my morning routine before the doorbell rings.

I am SO tired today, I can't explain it. I was this way yesterday morning too. About 4pm, I perked up and then was ok for the evening. Its weird to be so draggy in the morning!

I have company coming for dinner tonight, so I need to make a run to the store for a few ingredients. Last night I finally finished the teapots I made two months ago. I had them wrapped up in plastic and was spritzing them with water every few days. It feels good to be done with them. Now I need to clean down there so I will feel like working on some new stuff.

I have been trying to be on track with my eating, but last night I kind of had a melt down and ate mostly carby stuff I should not have. My blood sugar was terrible this morning because of it. Hopefully, that will help me to remember the consequences of bad eating behavior and give me more resolve not to do it again!

Weigh in on Fridays sounds good. I will try to join you.

Off to get something done!

Hi ladies,

Nothing exciting here. I did not get up and make it to the gym this morning. I am so digusted with myself. Instead I layed there trying to decide what to do and really never fell back asleep, so I might as welll gotten up. Maybe I will go tonight after work. Nothing going on anyway. Eating is not back on track. Don't know what is wrong with me. Just wanting the bad stuff or too much of the good stuff b/c I don't keep hardly any bad stuff in the house. Hope the motivation kicks in soon. Maybe the gym will help.


Ellen, WTG on eating a small piece of cake. And good job on the walking. I will be so glad when I get this boot off and am able to walk again. I really miss it so much. That cake sounds adorable. I wish you lived near me. I was looking for someone to do the cake for my DD's shower. The cupcakes she wanted were $30 a dozen and I would have needed 2-3 dozen. No way. So my other DD and I make cupcakes that looked like rattles. We decorated the cupcakes, stuck a stick in the side, tied a bow on the stick and put a gum drop slice on the end. They really turned out cute. Are you eating any protein at breakfast? Maybe that will help give you more energy.

Toni, Hope you get your reflux under control today. That has to be miserable.

Talitha, I will join you on Friday's weigh-in. Maybe that will help get me through the weekends. Good job on your weight. I know you will be at the 175 by Friday. Isn't Witch Hazel just alcohol?

Crystle, thanks for the idea. I will blend them for sauce. Yes, I love, love tomato soup catsup, sauce, salsa, just not fresh tomatoes. I think it is the texture. I am the same way with cantelopes, melons, anything with the slimy texture.

Off to do some work. Have a great day.

Default Good afternoon

Today has been good so far. For breakfast I made sausage with bell pepper, onion, zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato and cayenne pepper. The guys had tortillas but I ate mine with a fork.

We are on the run today so forgive me for the short note. I'll try to sneak on later. If not I'll definitely be on tomorrow.

Hang in there and keep on keeping on. ((Everybody)) You ARE the best you there is.

God bless,
Crystle

Afternoon ladies. I'm having a great day. The lady that helps with the housework is here cleaning. I'm so glad. I'll be gone all day tomorrow with my heart doctor appointment and tests. So I'll be happy to come home to a nice clean house. Acid reflux is so much better today too. Haven't eaten very much but eating is still not good.

Talitha- My gosh you're so darn close to your goal. I'm just praying for you to hit it. Eating looks good. Cabbage soup sounds so good. How did you make yours?

Crystle- I would not be caught dead in a dress. I like so horrible in one. I'm to dang fat! You are smaller than me so enjoy you can wear one. Are you still on vacation? I hope you're enjoying it.

Ellen-At least you're keeping up with your walking. Thats so great. Sorry you're dragging and hope you have a better day today. Good luck with your dinner party....

Solly- Oh boy we can do this! Its seems as if we're all struggling. I wish I had some big words of ? GET to that GYM........

Have to run be back tomorrow night.....

Hi ladies,

Yesterday was very busy so hoping today is better. Just got fitted for a bone stimulator. It is trapped on my boot and I have to wear it for 3 hrs a day. Just hoping it makes this break heal faster and I can get out of this dang boot. I am really tired of it.

I haven't been back to the gym Going to wait until Monday. DH thinks I should give the shingles a couple more days so I am not sore on top of the shingle pain. The epidural I got the other day really has seemed to help with the shingle pain. They still burn, but the stabbing pain is gone. They have scabbed over so I guess they are leaving soon.

Toni, hope you got a good report fromthe checkup. Do you know anything or do you have to wait for results to come back.? I would love to come home to a clean house. I did it once and t was nice. But I can't seem to spend the money on it. Now I am cleaning my DD's house too since the baby. Housecleaning was the last thing on her mind before the baby so now it is way down the list. I can't stand it so I just go and do it.

Talitha, Hope you are getting close to your goal for tomorrow. I think you will win.

Elllen, how's the walking going?

Crystle, Hope you get done all you need to today. Have a good one.

Bob, where are you?


Guess I had better get somethign accomplished here. Have a great day

Default Good afternoon

So sorry I didn't get to stop in yesterday. A friend came over and we had a great day crocheting, looking in crafting and cook books. Then we had giant salads and some awesome homemade bread. I told her I was gonna have to fess up to ya'll about the bread. But it was worth it.

This morning I didn't eat on plan but I tried to keep the portion reasonable. I made my first savory breakfast bread pudding. It was very tasty. My hubby gave me some ideas to tweak it for next time.

Toni...I made the switch from britches to dresses and it's been interesting trying to find things that won't make my hiney look like a barn. I pray you get awesome results from your tests.

Solly...Awesome that your shingles are feeling better. I think I missed what happened to your foot. Did you break it?

Ellen...Bob...Talitha...Hope ya'll are having a GREAT day.

Mary..how is your shoulder? Are you lurking? Love to hear from you.

Remember no matter what size you are still AWESOME! You are fearfully and wonderfully made.

God bless,
Crystle

Just sitting here waiting for the guy from Dish to come see whats wrong with our satillite. We may go to Direct tv. if its going to cost to much to fix. The system is way to old to be putting money into it. Had some hashbrowns with breakfast this morning. A tiny bit. So shame on me.

Solly- Oh my gosh a bone stimulator sounds awful. I sure hope it helps. I can't imagine how tiring it would be to wear that boot. Your DH is probably right on waiting on the gym till those darn shingles are a little better. Man Solly you are really having a round of it..... You have my prayers for you to have a healthy recovery on all this stuff...... Have to wait for them to call me on the tests. I don't know what they'll do cause my doctor is out of town to New York till November. Of course I found that out yesterday after going all that way.

Crystal- That sounds like a great day with your friend. I love times like that.
I'd sure have to have some of that bread pudding too. I've never had a savory one. I wish I was your neighbor I'd be sneaking around your kitchen all the time. LOL......


Guess I'll go and make the bed and some stuff. Today is laundry day too. Have a good afternoon.

Default Ut oh twice in one day..LOL

Toni...if you decide to go with Direct I think you'll be happy. We used to have Dish but have had Direct for the last two years. We have almost no outages and enjoy the extra Christian channels. I'd love for you to be my neighbor. We'd have a blast.

Back to being lazy...I'm resting for the upcoming weekend. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...LOL

((Everybody))

I probably won't be on again until Sunday or Monday but if I get a chance I'll try.

Love and hugs,
Crystle

Its been a busy day! I have walked every day this week...but unfortunately my blood sugar levels are not improving. I am feeling pretty frustrated.

Today, my son in law came over and did some yard work as a surprise for Tom...then they stayed for dinner. Kaeleb was adorable of course...he went to the store with me and we had a good time shopping for groceries.

I am pretty tired, and need to go to bed. Dinner tonight was ground beef fajitas. I guess I ate too much ...just had one whole wheat tortilla with ground beef, beans, guacamole and cheese on it. Oh and home made salsa and lettuce...and then I blew it with a hand full of corn chips. My blood sugar is really bad tonight. I am at wits end with it all...walking is not helping, and my eating has improved a good bit and it is not helping.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Not much going on here. Just made breakfast. I made eggs in a basket with some orange juice. It was so good.

Ellen- You have such a nice son in law. How wonderful of him to do the yard work. Hope your doctor can do something to get those blood sugars down.




Okay off I go. Hopeing Talitha won the challenge.

Hey ladies. I'm sorry that I forgot to come tell my weigh-in yesterday. I weighed in at 175.4 !!!!!! I am SOO proud of myself!! They haven't released the results of the competition, but I know that I've won.

For this weekend I'm allowing myself a little celebrating, but keeping it under control. Last night DH and I went out salsa dancing. We opted for not going out to eat first. Better financially AND for our eating. We did go to Steak and Shake after dancing and each drank two big glasses of water and shared a small milkshake.
Tonight I'm going out with some girlfriends. We are going to a local mexican cantina which is perfect because I know exactly what to order. I order the side salad and a chicken taco with no tortilla and no cheese. Then I dump the chicken on the salad. It is sooooo yummy!!

Ok ladies. you gonna weigh-in? Even if you're late today or tomorrow, go ahead and do it and be prepared to weigh in on friday again. Let's get ourselves motivated and into a routine!!!
