Then there's our latest addition to the SB BOARDS which is called OFF THE EATEN PATH This board is for everything NOT related to SB. You can use this board to post questions or comments on just about anything (okay, within reason). A book you recommend, a cleaning tip, a great website deal, etc. etc. Here's the link:

Will try to get in a post sometime later, but wanted to make sure I got our
done early in the morning, so here's my contribution for MM, there's 2 of them to read today-not really great ones, like usual, but at least some new thoughts to ponder


How do you get yourself to do what you know is best, what you know you must do? You find a way to truly want it.

Think of your favorite food. If you were hungry, and that food was sitting on the table in front of you, would you be able to bring yourself to eat it?

Of course you would. It would be no problem at all.

You wouldn't have to attend a seminar, or buy a book, or watch a video instructing you on what to do. You'd simply take the necessary steps, out of a desire to eat your favorite food.

No, not everything is as easy as reaching out and taking a bite of food. Yet the fact remains that the things you get done are the things you want to get done, whether they are easy or difficult, simple or complex.

You are completely capable of figuring out how, and finding the motivation to do something, when it is something you truly want to do. When you can make and maintain the connection between what you know you must do, and what you truly want, it will get done.

-- Ralph Marston



There is much to be gained by remembering and learning from the past. There is also much to be gained by remembering that the past does not have to control you.
Now is where you are. Now is when you are fully alive, fully able to make things happen.

Wishing that things had been different steals energy away from the positive actions you can take right now. Because now, instead of merely wishing, you can act to make it happen.

All the disappointments you've ever experienced are now behind you. Though their consequences may continue, those disappointments no longer must hold you back.

In fact, now in this moment you have the power to turn each disappointment completely around. You can, with your thoughts and actions, redirect your energy in whatever direction you choose.

When you break free of the chains that hold your thinking in the past, you'll discover something truly amazing. All that is now is much, much more than enough.

-- Ralph Marston

Have a wonderful day, and a fabulous week!!!!!

SB since 3/22/00

Good Morning!

I am about to head down and find my cell phone. No sign of the travelers...they were supposed to come in last night. It was raining pretty hard, so maybe that delayed them. They may have just stopped at James' apartment, and did not make it over here. Whatever...but a mother worries...

Last night we went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner, and I got Mongolian chicken, and had a spring roll and some hot and sour soup. I did eat about 1/2 a cup of rice. All in all, it was not a bad day, but that dinner was surely not legal. At least it was not a heavily sweet sauce on it...

Today, I plan to go to Curves, and clean. I am having a young wife over for lunch. She would not want to eat any food fixed in my kitchen if she saw it now!

I may be leaving for a while to stay with my sister, who is in Durham at the Duke Univ. Hospital with her husband who is very sick. He has been in the hosp. for a week and they still don't know what is wrong with him. he is very weak, has lost a lot of weight and can't walk. Very strange and baffling. They thought it was some type of autoimmune disease, but now they just don't know. They found a little node in his brain and are wondering if that might be the problem. So, I may be flying up there just to sit with my sister at the hospital. It must be very had to be all by herself and still not know. She has been very "quiet" about all this, and we didn't even know that my BIL was sick until he had been experiencing difficulties for a couple of months. I have a strange family.

Breakfast: Stredded wheat N. bran with one peach and sk. milk.
Walked my 2 miles before breakfast, have 5600 steps so far today.

We have a pond in our back yard. A pond cleaning lady comes once a month to maintain the pond and she was going to be here this monring at 8. So far, she is not here and it is 9:15. Oh well.

Have lots of chores to do today. Clean up around the house. Pull weeds in the yard. Shop for milk, etc. My caterpillars are doing great and I need to go buy some parsley to feed some of them.

Monet--have a good eating day today.

Debbie--Check the board week before last. I think it was then. You probably don't need to do the poll. We know it's extra work to set it up, and even to come up with poll questions. We had some feedback when I raised this issue. I hope you read this, but you may not even be checking the board. Maybe I'll send you another e-mail.

Have a great day, everybuddy.

Good Monday morning.

A new week and a new chance to stay OP.

I can't beleive I had a OP week and weekend. It iwas close as last a night a friend called and invited us over for spaghetti and meatballs. I wanted to go so I didn't have to cook and for the company. We had layed steaks out to grill. DH was tired and I didn't really feel good, so we declined. So we had a nice legal dinner.

Had a lazy weekend. Cleaned house Sat and other than the birthday dinner (which I had steak and veggies and a salad), that was all we did. They all went out to a karoke bar, but we went on home since DH had to work Sunday morning. Yesterday after church we vegged out on the couch the whole day. I just didn't have much energy.

Can't seem to shake this stupid cold. I just hope it dosen't interefere with me getting my treatment on Thursday.

Toni, I don't even want to think about Chrismas shopping. Evenif I did, n one would have a clue what they wanted yet.

Gator, I am so envious of your walking. I love to walk but just don't have the energy right now. This body is so in need of toning & wt loss and I know the walking would help. Hopefully soon. Hope your BIL is ok. It is so hard when they don't know what it is. that is sweet of you to go sit with her.

Heart, for staying OP all weekend.

Missy, I know adoption is very expensive. My best friend went through in-vitro several times and numerous other procedures before they adopted. Their son came through a local adoption agency and once before they got to the end and the girl changed her mind. Their daughter came from Korea. I just think it is wonderful that people can adopt these children and give them a chance at a wonderful life. Stillpraying hard for you. I sho at Kroger ususally every 2 weeks. Ususally spend (with DD home) around $250-$300.

Ken, good fo ryou getting to church. It really helps when you like your pastor and get alot from his sermons. My DH works for a fastener co. (nuts and bolts) and stocks industrial companies lines. But they are moving into a new building so transfering all thsoe nuts and bolts is taking a long time.

Monet, Mothers tend to worry easily. Hope the travelers are safe and sound.

Need to get started work here. Be back later.

Default Good Monday Morning!

I didn't even turn on the computer over the weekend! I work on it so much that I often don't even want to play on it on Sat. and Sun.

It was a good weekend. I have apparently recovered from the bread incident and I'm down another 2 lbs! Go figure.

Jackie--will this treatment be your last or your next-to-the-last? I can imagine you are ready to get them behind you. WTG on the OP week!

Gator--I know your DS will probably be glad to have you in Durham. That's got to be tough to be alone when you are worried and don't know what is wrong.

Monet--Hope the travelers are home safely. We got horrible rain and storms last night too.

On a sadder note. I just found out that a friend of mine's newborn daughter has been diagnosed with several holes in her heart as well as bloodvessels that are reversed. She has been flown to Boston for surgery, which should take place sometime this week. Apparently this will be the first of many. She is now 10 days old.

Heartmom--you've really educated me on heart babies, so I have a question. What can those of us back home do that would be most supportive of Mom, Dad and baby while they are in Boston???

Have a great OP day everyone!


ps--Deb--I'm with Gator on the poll!

Good Monday morning:

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was pretty good, and I stayed almost 100% legal, with a few "little" exceptions. I weighed this morning and was at 118#. I don't think I've ever seen that (except when in my early 20's). The lowest I've been since starting this woe, was 118.5# twice. I'll take it though.

So far today, I have had:

Cheerios & low-carb granola w/ blueberries & Rice Milk
Water - 20 oz
Lunch: Will be leftover eggplant parm. that I made for dinner on Sat.
Dinner: Will be Mahi, Mahi w/ broccoli & salad
Snack: Who knows, but I'll post later

My workout plan for this week is:
Mon: Slim in 6 - Ramp it up (40 minutes)
Tues: Slim in 6 - Ramp it up (40 minutes)
Wed: Gym
Thurs: Slim in 6 - Ramp it up (40 minutes)
Fri: Gym
Sat: Gym
Sun: Day off

We will see if I stick to that or not. Tuesday we have plans to see some friends, so I might miss it that day.

Jack-K: Sounds like you were even OP at the birthday party....way to go. Too bad you had to miss Karaoke; that is so much fun. I have to have a few drinks under my belt before I will go near the mic. Do you feel any stronger today? I hope those taste-buds get straightened out soon; that would be horrible. Sounds like a nice, relaxing weekend. Those are the kind of weekends that throw me off plan, and you stayed OP all weekend...good for you!!!

Fruit: What incentive; I am so sure you will be able to get into that size 20 suit; just keep up the good work with exercising and eating. I haven't started the Gymnema yet for the sweet cravings; probably sometime this week. I am going to save the drops for the holidays to keep me from going overboard. I will enjoy a few goodies, and then use it to not overindulge. I'll let you all know how it works.

Toni: I usually start my Christmas shopping early to, as to not miss out on the "hot" toys, but I usually don't start this early....I wouldn't have anywhere to put it all. Way to get a headstart.

Gator: I thought you'd appreciate that tidbit about the ped. steps. I'm sure your legs are getting very toned with all those steps you are getting in. I am so very sorry to hear about your BIL. I hope they are able to find out what is wrong with him, and get it under control soon. This health thing is such a mystery. We don't know from day to day what could happen. We have to truly enjoy every minute of every hour of every day, huh? I am sure your DS would love having someone there with her.

heart: Way to stay OP over the weekend; that is always the true challenge. Sorry about the computer virus. It is so frustrating that there are so many idiots out there with nothing better to do than ruin our lives. I hope it didn't affect too much.

Ken: I'm the same way...even if I have the rare opportunity to nap, I don't. I always have too much on my mind, and always so much to do. This was just a mini check up that I had. I go in for my full physical with my Family Doc in August, and then in for my annual with my gyn in Sept. Good luck with your annual next month. It seems as if I am always at the grocery store. I spend about $200-225 per week, sometimes more and sometimes less. There are 4 of us. I shop at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joes and also some non-organic stores such as Albertson's, Fry's, Safeway....

Monet: Have a good workout today. I hope you found your phone.

Fillise: Congrats on the 2#'s. So sad to hear of your DF's baby. I hope all goes well with surgery, and the baby recovers soon. I will be anxious to read heart's advice to you, since I have a friend who is currently carrying a baby girl, who has a heart defect and only has a 30% chance of survival. If she does survive, she will also be faced with surgeries.

Well, I better go get some stuff done around here.

Have a great day!

The board is slow today.

Nothing exciting here with me. Just heading home. DD's have volleyball tonight, but youngest is still in a cast and other DD is on vacation. Guess we will just watch my nieces. Something to do.

It is so cool here. Only 72 today. I will need a sweatshirt and jeans. I freeze on warm days. Looks like rain too.

Legal eating today even though I haven't eaten much.

BF: special K, mixed with fiver one and strawberries, 1/2 c oj.
lunch, salad, egg, ham and cheese, balsamic dressing. Only ate about 3/4. It was yucky tasting. 3/4 orange.

Dinner will be burgers, spinach and maybe peas.

I don't remember if it was Gator or Fillise (or someone else) that mentioned the pork rines wih cheese like nachos. I tried them with salsa. They were pretty good. Even better than making homemade chips. Plus you don't have to count them as a starchy carb. Try them.

Susan, for another 2 lbs. You are on the right track. One Thursday and then 1 to go. Can't believe it is almost over. Sending prayers for your friend's baby. They must be so worried.

Nat, that's a pretty tough workout program. I wouldn't worry if you missed one. 118 is awesome. I don't think I ever weighed that in my whole life.

Have a great eveing.

Sheesh...what a day! I finally got a call from my son. I could bean him and his sister both! They got in last night about 10, and were so tired they just crashed at his apartment. He brought Laura on home at about 1. Today is Ruth's birthday, and she got off work early, but Erik told her she had to leave until 1, so he could fix her she came over here. My friend came too, and they seemed to hit it off. After Ruth left, James and Laura showed up, then my friend and I left for Costco. She had never been and liked it a lot. I picked some stuff up for her while we were there. Came home and Laura was looking for her official transcript from school that she needs for college. She has lost it, and is going to have to go get another one. Teens! She just headed off to the credit union, but first requested quiche for dinner. I can make it with ww crust, so that is not a problem. I just did not want to make anything so complicated tonight. sigh...

I need to go work on dinner some, so I will hopefully be back later!

Where did the day go?! A friend called this morning and was coming for coffee. She ended up staying till noon so it really made my day short. I did make a meatloaf for dinner tonight. Tried cooking it in the microwave and it came out good and only took 20 min. It was nice I didn't have to heat up the house. I didn't get to eat breakfast so lunch was bacon and eggs and one piece of ww toast. Dinner- meatloaf and green beans.. Lousy menu I know... Better go and get my treadmill walk in.

Gheez, where's eveyone at today? I hope everyone is being good, eating well, and staying out of trouble (ha).

I didn't get my workout in today (shucks). I had to go return some wallpaper we didn't use, and then run by the mall for a few things. I know Old Navy clothes run big, but I actually bought a size 2 pair of jean shorts....I couldn't believe it. Anyway, Lane fell asleep in the truck on the way home, and didn't go back to sleep when we got home. I think I will get up early tomorrow to do the tape before the girls get up.

Nothing else much to report; I've been pretty good, but not 100%.

My menu:

BF: Cheerios w/ low carb granola, blueberries & rice milk
Snack: Apple
Snack: SF/NF Latte
Lunch: OOOOPs, not what I planned....Chick-Fil-A (8 nuggets & side salad) & iced tea
Snack: Two small chocolate caramel patties (free sample)
Dinner: Will still be what I listed above
Water: Approx 32 oz so far

Better run! I'll check in later.

Take care,

This is a drive by as I'm getting ready to settle in for the nights festivities!

Hope everyone had a good weekend...Mine was wonderful....the christening was beautiful...Ethan wore the gown that all the babies in Tracy's family had worn...52 yrs old...of course, they had to let it out for him, and he popped the button in the back during the ceremony! All in all though, it was a good time that was had by all! My poor Brother didn't get home until after midnight and had to be to work this morning at 6a.m. !!!! He said the HOTLANTA AIRPORT was a nightmare!!!!! But, isn't it always??????

Gotta run....MSNBC is gearing up.....

DEMOCRATS are SEXY......!!! Did you ever hear "That was a great piece of ELEPHANT??????"

Dinner was chicken casserole. Something I ate has upset my stomach though. I feel like I could hurl, which is not good. I have to run to the store tonight and get a few items that are essentials...grrrr. Its thundering too. I bet I get caught in the rain.

I was legal again, though I had too many starches again today. I also ate too much of a few other two oranges at once! I had eggs benedict again, then a sandwich of scrambled eggs for lunch. I munched on cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes, and tonight with the casserole I had a salad. I also drank about three cups of coffee with half and half. I was tempted by the carrot cake, but it was easier to leave it alone today than it was even yesterday. Hooray!

BOB: I sure hope you are not trying to say that Republicans are NOT sexy. I would have to take great offense at that since my husband is a Republican, and honey, they don't come any sexier than him! He has all the young 20 something guys at church lining up to ask him what he does to stay in shape. One guy's wife told him she wanted him to look like my husband! (the guy is about 30, and really good looking too! She wants him buff like mine) So, I guess its all in the eyes of the beholder. Afterall, elephants do find other elephants attractive.

Well, it finally rained here today and we really needed it. However, it was only about 1/8" so we need some more!

I had a legal day:
Lunch was a BLT on WWSG bread, and 1/2 peach
Snack: Bowl of bran flakes, melon wedge, 3 oz. turkey
Dinner: finally fixed the lamb chops with dijon mustard sauce. Ratatouille, salad with avocado and tomato.

I was so busy today that I only got to walk once, this morning before breakfast. This evening it was raining. I worked out this afternoon--lifted those weights. Went to the store. The pond lady was here until noon and things are looking good in the pond. She trimmed all the water lilies and they are so pretty now. I also cleaned the kitchen, did the laundry, and cleaned the caterpiller cage. Those cats "pooped" a lot! They are little eating machines. I have some tiny baby caterpillars that are as small as 1/2 eyelash. They just hatched out of their little eggs. So I'll get to see them grow up and transform. I have swallowtails and monarch caterpillars in the cage.

Anyway, even though I didn't do a walk around the neighborhood, I got 15000 steps, so I was happy about that. Tells me that I was pretty active around here!

Don't have much action on the board today. I keep posting because I want to keep up the good support, and, ahem, because I like you gals.
That said, I'm gonna go watch a little TV with my DH. Bye.

Default Howdy ya'll!

My back decided to be ornery yesterday and I could hardley move. Today was much better but I am still having to really baby it. We did get a few strands done on the fence so only two more to run tomorrow. I walked this evening but it was so sad..I couldn't walk fast at all. If I moved just the wrong way it hurts...forget sneezing...oh my goodness.

Poncho...size need to worry. Even if they run big that is SMALL!

Jack-K...It's a pretty cool 74 right now. I wish I had more umph to walk this evening. It was a great night for it. I sure hope you are feeling better soon. This cool weather can't help your cold.

Bob..hey woman!

Gator...are you gonna take pictures again? I loved the ones you shared before of your butterflies and catapillars.

Monet...I hope you feel better soon. We have a tummy bug going around our house right fun.

Toni...meatloaf sounds good. One of my favorites.

Susan...WTG being down 2 more pounds. I was over the weekend till I ate a stick and a half of the stuff...a planned cheat but I couldn't stop at just half a stick.

Guess I'd better get.

Love and hugs,
