Thumbs down Hello!

Hello everyone--thanks for the many birthday wished and the sweet birthday card! I had a lovely day. My brother and his family were here. We all went to the beach on Sunday and then Monday we shopped. I even survived my brother's extra special birthday present to me. When I got up there was a HUGE box of Krispy Kremes on the table. My youngest niece kept waving them in front of me going "don't you wish you could have one?" I held firm and stayed OP all day! My SIL made me a legal chocolate pie for the celebration. I'll post the recipe when I get back home.

I head back to Auburn tomorrow. I don't know if I'll be able to check in as I have to hit some meetins as soon as I get off the plane--but I'll definatly be back to a normal schedule on Thursday!

I think I'm down to a new low (235) but I really want to get on my scales at home before I declare it officially.

Susan

ps--I don't even own a pair of white shoes. But the linen--sigh--I shall miss it.

Good evening ladies..

I may be the only one, but I just never got into those reality shows. Don't have a clue about BB except for the commercials. I did watch the last couple of Survivor 2 shows because of the TX boy, but just don't have time to follow them.

The rain just won't stop here in NTX and I'm beginning to be waterlogged. But I won't complain after last summer. One year ago today it was 111 and we hadn't had rain in 2 months.

I'm not sure what Weigh in Wed. is, but will try to read some old postings to figure it out and jump right in.

We had a PTO meeting tonight at my school and then had some grocery shopping to do, so I haven't been home very long. It's kinda late, but I still need to ride my exercise bike. I'll "see" y'all tomorrow.

oh yes, I forgot who asked, but my girls are 16 and 12 (til Oct 30). They are a joy and are finally getting along a little bit better. The older is tolerating the younger more easily at the moment.

Take care.
Jeanie
196/188/130(I think I did it right. beginning, now, goal?)

How do you get those cute little icons under your usernames?

Good Wednesday Morning!

UGH! I feel guilty this morning-I chose not to walk when I really could of. It was pouring down rain when we woke up this morning, but by the time Michael got picked up, it was over. Part of me wanted to go, the other part didn't-don't ask me which part is which, but the part that didn't want to go won at the end and I feel somehow "guilty"-sounds stupid I guess. Decided that I'll tackle a bit of cleaning since I didn't walk.

Have to pick up my 4 year old niece from school today. She's loves the idea that she's going to be "special" today and have Aunt Debbie pick her up. Will take her out to lunch since they don't feed them there. I haven't stepped into a FF place for a long time-I guess I'll have to ask my sister where I should take her to eat-I'll wait til I get home to eat something.

Well, TODAY IS WEIGH IN WEDNESDAY!!! I hope you all faired better than I on the scales. I'm up 1 1/2lbs from last weeks WIW, but TOM is def. arriving today and I hope it's up from that and not the 2 med. Carbolites I scarfed down yesterday! Actually, I'm quite happy to be able to say I've been able to stay below my goal weight for almost 3 months

If you'd like to post your WIW results, just click on the link below and it will take you to the SB WEIGH IN BOARD:

http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/show...?threadid=9036

I must admit, I didn't like this latest version of BB until BOB came to visit, and now with it coming down to the wire, I'm glued! Last night was great. Since I got into it, I thought either Monica or Will should win. I don't like Will as a person, but he's really played this game big time. Monica, has played it well too, but in a different way. That Nicole is a wacko and it sure does show. I guess her and Hardy are wiping those smirks off their faces!! Tonight will be a challenge, there is another show on at the same time-something is going to have to be taped!!!!!

KAREN, don't worry about responding to everyone, we know how hectic life can be at times-just your checking in and saying hello is what counts!!!

SEF, hope you are feeling better. Same thing I said to KAREN about checking in with us, just letting us know you're around is what really matters-though we do miss those witty posts of yours!

FILLISE, CONGRATS on taming the doughnut monster in you-what a great bday present to yourself-true willpower!!!!! I hope you find that new low on the scale when you get home-let us know!!!

JRED, WIW is just the day that we post our weights. It's not a mandatory thing you have to do, just something I started back when the boards started-gosh, it's been almost 1 1/2 years when I think about it! Anyhow, it's not only on Wednesdays because WIW sounds better than any other day I could find something snappy sounding, but I started SB on a Wednesday, so there's a little of me in this reasoning You have it correctly, 194/125.5/129 are my starting, current and goal weights-and you posted yours right. It helps for others to see where you were/are/going.

Okay gals, I'm going to get something for Lauren to eat for breakfast. I'll check in with you later this morning.

Please remember, TOMORROW IS RECIPE DAY so if you have any SB LEGAL RECIPES you'd like to share with the board, please, try to post them tomorrow on the new SEPTEMBER 2001 RECIPE BOARD.

Have a wonderful day!

Viv's Guidelines for Sugarbusters Maintenance

Eat totally OP all day. Become the pillar of Sugarbusters (after Deb ).
After the kids have gone to bed, raid their birthday party candy stash and be sure to remove every last bit of chocolate or chewy stuff. Drink lots of water to flush it out of your body.
Continue indefinitely.



There you have it, ladies, my version of maintenance! If I could just get past the stupid nighttime cravings, I would actually lose again!!!!!! Need to do a little headbanging!

This is just another Viv Quickie - Happy September birthdays (my mom and older DS too!) and welcome newbies!

School has started, things are nuts, my mom is here to celebrate her 80th. She has gained so much weight in the past two years, yet refuses to see how her eating habits have contributed to that. She gets very defensive so I just keep my mouth shut (hard for me ). We're taking her to Foxwoods for her birthday as a special treat so she can have fun on the slots.

Today I find out if my Dad's cancer has recurred. Keep your fingers crossed that everything is negative.

I have been lurking daily, just about, so I'm up to date with everyone, and send you all lots of hugs.

Hi everyone

Just a quickie.

I'm happy to report I weighed in at 197 lbs this morning - that is one less than my lowest of 2 weeks ago. I feel now that I have definitely broken that 200 barrier.

Viv - I loved your Maintenance Guidelines I used to have a stash of candy for the gcs but stopped buying it when I started SB. Partly for their benefit but also for mine. I used to find it very hard to keep my hand out of the candy jar. I hope things turn out o.k. for your Dad.

Sef - Hope you are soon feeling better.

I don't have time to respond to everyone but will check in again later.

Bye

Marie.

Default Hi All

Well, WIW wasn't good to me - back at 199 - I had dipped to 197 during the week so hopefully it's just fluctuating and will continue to fluctuate DOWN.... Went to the Dr. today and we're going to run my c-peptides again to see how I'm doing. I haven't had that tested since March. This was the first significant loss since going in March. I was down 6 lbs. from July 5 - my last appointment. Considering I've only lost a total of 10 lbs. (at 198) that tells me I'm finally getting the balances where they need to be.

Vince and I spent all day Monday in beds - yep, you read that right bedS. We went shopping for a new bed. Decided on the soft side waveless waterbed. It will be delivered on Thursday before we leave for our anniversary week-end on Friday. We'll set it up Friday morning and have it waiting for us when we get back. We have to decide on a semi-permanent place for the bed because it will be nigh impossible to move once allt that water is in it. We 'redecorate' by rearranging the furniture and pictures in the house every month or so - cheap guys decorating! The soft side looks like a regular mattress and uses all the regular sheets and all, but is and sleeps like a waterbed. I'm pretty excited - never had a waterbed before and it's soft and cushy like I like and Vince thinks it's firm enough for him to get a good night's sleep.

Well....the HP and Compaq merger was not good for HIG and I got laid off yesterday so I'm filing for unemployment today and trying to get my resume completed for a job fair that's going on tomorrow. I haven't worn panty hose in the 3 years I've been there, so I'm not looking forward to dressing up, wearing heels and putting on that 'smile', but alas I do need to work.

I'll check in when I can, but I'll be full time job hunting for a while. I'll let you know how it goes.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FILLISE!!!! CONGRATS ON STAYING OP!!!!!

Default Hi there

WIW - still stuck 157/148/125 since 6/4/01 - oh well ........ I'll just keep on truckin!

Viv - my thoughts are with you today - I definately know how you feel. I'm crossing everything I can think of for your Dad!

Fillise - KK doughnuts are a definate - ultimate - temptation for me. You did so good - we are all very proud of you! I have been lucky that no one has put one in front of me!

Rosalie - HOORAY FOR YOU ON THE BROKEN BARRIER!!!

SolShine - so sorry about your job.... I'm sure you will find something else soon. Lots of times those things can be blessings in disguise - maybe you'll find something better and that pays more $$!!! You never know!

My oldest had his first fall baseball game last night - we lost, but we haven't played or practiced since June. They were rusty, but will come right along now. A couple of the boys that were in BIG slumps in June got hits last night, so that will help by boosting their ego a little! My little one has his first game tomorrow night... it should be hillarious!! I can't wait.



cya,

Hey ladies,

Still at 166 and still blaming it on TOM. You'll know if that's true in another week or so. Still real busy so will just respond for now.

TV-Awesome skating. Did you get that rush you felt as a youngster? I have to know the name of that movie too. I think it was about a Texas cheerleader murder and the lady (who's face I see) stared in "Peggy Sue Got Married". Maybe Bob can place it.

Bee-Hey there. I remember the sugar cravings the first two weeks. I didn't whine too much, did I ladies? My favorite way to beat them was a legal smoothie. Plain, no fat, yogurt, legal fruit (strawberries are my favorite), artificial sweetner, 2% milk and whirl in a blender or food processor. For extra icy for ice cream withdrawl I'd throw in some ice too. Hope that helps! That got me through the summer. How's Lisa?

Deb-Yum, thanks for eating a Carbolite for me! I feel like a pig too I'm so bloated! Didn't walk. Will definitely do something today. Was beaten down by afternoon run. A four year old went missing! Not my fault but lots of stress trying to find her. I was pooped by the time I got home just in time to fill out the 500,000 papers the schools have you fill out (school papers x 3 here). Nance-Tell Faris I need to borrow his sling! Let me know if you brave the skates. It's worth the "silly" phase. Did you wind up at McD's or BK? If you didn't...how did you avoid it?

[color=orange]Bob-Welcome back. Get some rest. Hope you had fun. And....by the way.....I'm wearing white shoes again!!!!

Karen-Thanks for the Gap Creek update. I'm like you...super busy right now....but will post for a little per day. I remember the two day readathon I did last time I went MIA.

sol-My prayers for sunshine. Is the pain worse with the rain? Don't worry about quality posts...we're just glad you're here.

Fillese-Congrats on the will power with those Krispy Kremes!!! Glad you had a good day.

Jred-Call me old fashioned but I really want some values in my tv too. I asked about childrens ages. I have a 16 year old and 12 year old too. But of the opposite sex. They no longer loathe each other. Just not super close now. I think the older resented the newcomer after 5 years of alone time with parents.

Viv-Your color is in honor of your last post. That maintenance guide was so funny. How's the head? I said a prayer for dad and aren't you a great daughter for biting your tongue about moms weight? Let us know how dad is.

Rosalie-Whooo hoooo 197!!! You go girl. All that badmitton & biking has paid off!!!!

SolI bet the weight change is just fluctuation. Hang in there. I have a happy dance saved just for you. You know where my mind went in your last post. I read bed. No plural. Bad 'fly. I'm so jealous---I want your bed. But only if it has dual temp controls. So sorry about the layoff. You were so wise to update that resume!!!! Let us know how that goes. I'm with you. Panty hose should be banned.

Well, bye all. Gotta go fuel up the bus.
Love 'fly

Hi everyone-
The scale was kind today 175/158/135 (SB since 7/24) but I can't figure out why. TOM coming up and I was even salting my triscuits yesterday.
At least I got in my hill runs today. There's nowhere flat where I live, so if I run, it's always a hill run. I just "visualize" that I'm Lance Armstrong powering a bike up the Alps, or Marion Jones going for the finish line I'd love to know what my four-legged running partner visualizes.
Then I went for a "social walk" with a few of my walking buddies that go everyday before work.

Solshine- So sorry to hear about your job loss. We're in the same boat here due to dot.com crashes and mergers. I'm working part-time doing admin work while re-writing my resume (last updated 10 years ago for the computer field), trying to learn some state-of the-art technology, and hunting for a pair of panty-hose! Good luck in your search! The waterbed should be great- Jon and I had one for 15 years. Only problem was when I was pregnant and couldn't generate the umph to get out of it. Dh would bounce on his side to catapult me out!

Rosalie- congrats on the under 200 goal! That's awesome!

sef- hope you feel better soon.

QUESTIONS: What is BB? How do you get the graphic under your names?

Bye for now- gotta go watch great US Open Tennis so I can feel really lousy about my game....

I'm still holding at 144. Was really hoping that the 143 of yesterday would hold, but it didn't.

Got my TMJ splint yesterday & having a time getting use to it. Have to wear it 24/7, except when I'm eating...yuck. I really think it needs more adjustment, but won't have a chance to go back till next week.

Haven't really had a chance to read the board, so I can't respond to any posts. I'm really sorry about that cause I'd like to know how everyone is doing, but I'm sure that you all understand. Sometimes things are just too hetic.

Had another long day packing away Mom's things. Only have one more week till my brother moves in, so we're trying to get it all done.

Working 12 hr shifts the next 2 days, then heading off to Texas for the week end. Will be visting my 2nd daughter, Tina & my oldest gs Dane. We'll be attending a gospel concert Saturday night then get to hear Tina sing at church Sunday morning. This is what I'm doing for my birthday.

Will try to get back to the board before too long, just don't know when. Bye

Yippee! Happy dance.

Thank you melaris! Because of your question I learned something new! I thought they were neat too but didn't know how. What I did was-went to my last post....hit edit.....hit profile....hit edit options....hit change avatar....chose one of theirs.....hit submit changes. I tried to use one of my gifs but they were too big. Gotta have 70x70 pixel max. So until I find a killer one I'm stuck with what I have. So glad the scale was kind to you. I remember my brief move to PA. Were were in Monroeville outside Pittsburgh. I took my bike and used it exactly once in 1 1/2 years!!!! I literally rode down the hill (mountain) and couldn't make it back up!!!! So I applaud your hill running. Would love the chance to redo a hill now that I'm a lot more fit than PA. I did ride hills in Lancaster when I was in my 20's. That was fun.

melf-hope you get used to that splint soon. Tell me how it works at night. Do you drool? Did Dr. Evil "check" you in that same way and if he did---were you ready? Have fun at the concert and with your visit. You deserve it.

to all my other pals. My mil is turning 60 soon and taking it quite hard. My sil is having a birthday bash in NY which my dh will attend. Has anyone else dealt with this? and does anyone have any suggestions to make it special? I was thinking taping something to watch with the kids or writing something to read as a tribute to all she's done and all her wisdom. You know.....all that mushy stuff.

Bye for now,
'fly

Hey All!

WOW, I can't believe it's already 7:30pm-shows are coming on soon!

Took my niece Ainsley Rose to Wendy's-she tells me (mind you, she's 4 years old), "You need to talk to my Mom and tell her you have to pick me up again!" She loved being the center of attention and going out to lunch with "Aunt Deb."

I wrote to Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller and asked her about carob being low-GI as someone had questioned me about it being so. She said that it's not been tested, but since it was a legume, it probably was low on the GI-I had no idea it was considered a legume-so I learned something new! Also, I asked her about her latest book which is now out-has anyone read it, it's called The Glucose Revolution Life Plan.

VIV, I'm going to shoot both you and RHROO! The two of you are 4lbs from goal and you both keep doing this sabotaging to yourself. I have a big pent up CONGRATULATIONS just waiting for you and her-are you trying to drive me crazy???????LOL! What's the latest new on your Dad?

ROSALIE, CONGRATS!!!! What wonderful news to read-you go girl!!! You must be feeling really good today-your patience is paying off again!

SOL, glad to see you still under the 200 mark New bed huh, definitely have to brake that baby in!!! Good luck with the job hunt-are you going to post your resume on the web as well?

TV, maintaining is better than gaining-I think we'd all agree on that one

FLY, ended up at Wendy's-don't ask me why, just thought of that place as being somewhat better-she wanted chicken nuggets. How do I not let that tempt me? LOL! That food is just so gross, how I ever ate it in the past, I'll never know-stupidity I guess. The only FF my kids usually get is pizza or burritos at Taco Bell-at least that's from my end. Really, nothing tempts me, remember, I'm anal when it comes to staying OP! Lost kid? Don't have any suggestions for you MIL turning 60, I'm trying to handle the fact that I'll be turning 40 next month!

MELIRIS, CONGRATS on your loss-though you didn't mention how much you lost Thanks for posting your BIO on the BIO BOARD-it was nice to learn more about you AND that you too have a birthday on Sept. 8th, same day as MELF! Sorry, BB is BIG BROTHER, the TV show. Also, the little pictures under the user names are called AVATARS-if you go to your EDIT OPTIONS and follow FLYS instructions she posted for you, you'll be able to do it too

MELF, hey, staying the same, like I told TV, is sure better than a gain! You and MELIRIS share a birthdate! I read an article on TMJ last night-will have to get the name of the magazine I got it from and let you know.

NANCE, have you heard how LDBLOND is doing????????

BOB, got an e-mail from a gal who's doing SB-lives in Sarasota as well-told her about you-hope she decides to join us.

Okay gals, I'm outta here-will try to check in before I hit the hay tonight.

Toodles
