Sue--prayers to you and your mom. My mom goes for the outpatient surgery tomorrow morning. Hoping an infected cyst is all they find.

Mindee--fingers crossed for you to get a new place like Sassy was able too--both of you sound like you have some crappy neighbors. 200 , well actually 199 is my first goal, then 180 is the next, then the ultimate would be 140-150. I stayed 170-180 for years after I had Teri then I crept up to 200 and then after the accident to 220-226.

Cristina--I am going to quit WW too. The weight is not going fast enough to be worth the $12/week I pay to go. I love the leader and the ladies, but hubby does nothing but complain when I go every Friday morning.

Susieq--they don't have $10/bag day here either. Teri's ex Dave seems alot like your ex. I only remember the Dick and Jane books too. I missed the Bachelor--who did he get rid of last night??

Hi to everyone else!! Gotta go--hubby is complaining.

well, i have been eating well today......which is good since I am usually eating like crap!

I am putzing around online and watching the "What would you do?" program. Right now they are leaving a pretend baby in the car and they are looking to see how people would react to seeing it in the car by itself.

Sue~ I hope your mom gets better! I will be praying for you and her as well.

Jules~ I feel so much better now that I have a closer goal that is even more achievable then the original number that I was aiming for.

Sue--T&P's coming your way. How stressfull for you. I can only imagine what you are going through. Take care of yourself. I know what you mean about wondering how the rest of the year might go considering it started out so bad. Think positive. Your mom is so lucky to have your support.

Mindee--Good luck on your home search.

Ok, I'm bummed right now. I, for one, am dertermined to NOT quit WW. I haven't been for 4 weeks, due to being sick, and set my alarm to go this morning and woke up to snow and school delays, which usually means that the morning class is canceled. Oh, well, I'll go to the class on Friday morning instead. Even though I've lost a few pounds being sick, I still want to lost another 10-15 before Lauren's wedding. Only 4 months away!! If I lose about 1 lb a week, I just might get there. I'll get back on my elliptical this morning. Going to dance tonight. I also need to look up some arm and back toning exercises. I'm wearing a sleeveless dress to the wedding

Gonna check a few emails and get motivated. I'll check back with ya'll later

Another quick note from the hospital. I am hoping to get home this afternoon for a shower and rest. The roads are still icy, so we shall see.
Mom is still weak, but trying to get back to eating and moving around. They did get her up last night for about 3 steps and will work on that again today. The Drs. are talking about her going home later today or tomorrow. I already told them I want her to be stronger this time so I don't have to turn around and bring her back. So we will see. She wants to go home to her own room and I don't blame her. Her problem is not going away and won't get better, but they won't/can't do a procedure unless it is life or death and right now she is improved a little. Yesterday morning I would have said it was life or death. How can they send her home so quickly after being so ill?
Thank you for your prayers and good wishes. It is working...

eek, hope that pic isn't too big for the forum. lol

Good Morning!

Another wonderful day in the land of wacky weight loss chicks.

Jules- & Sue Prayers to both your mothers! And to you gals.

Cristina- I would clean your house if you were sick or something. I wouldn't want to be paid for it. Because,,,,,you know, cleaning is not my life's ambition. lol My mom use to clean a really nice house for $50 a month, it had a pool and everything. We would stay there when the family went on vacation, gave me a taste of the wealthy lifestyle w/ the family room, play room and on and on. Course our little farm house was right next door. So, it seemed weird that we were staying right next store and it was ok for robbers to enter our house but not the neighbors?? lol I guess we didn't have anything to steal. haha.
Ugly green shag carpet from the 70's?? Gotta love it. Has Cambrie ever watched Curious George??? I looooove that show, I love all the little noises he makes, so cute. lol.

Mindee - Ick, to taxes. I will do mine when I ever get the unemployment W-2, I didn't put in a change of address so thinking (hoping) it will come this week. Going to move w/ my refund! Good for you on making good eating choices!

Jules- Oh, on the Bachelor Jason let Stephanie go....she wasn't broken up too much over it. lol Good for her, I cringe when some of the ladies fall apart.

I made it to bag day yesterday!! You would be so proud of me. I bought $59 dollars worth of clothes for $10. I took an early lunch at 1pm and rushed over to the store and filled a bag pretty fast. I looked for jeans but only came away w/ some denim capri's, 2 sweathers and shirts. I won't describe everything but I am wearing this cute ruby sweater w/ one of the tops today. Gaby goes "you look pretty",,,,awww, it fells good to get away from the hoodie look. lol

I guess that is it from this end. I did eat some turkey deli meat last night w/ some crackers, always feel hungry right before bed. Have swimming tonight, almost done w/ that.

k- to Sassy, Francie, Tammy, Katy, Asia, and Kathy!!

I had my usual salad for lunch and realized I didn't even have breakfast because we were running late this morning.

Going to get Gaby and spend some time w/ her this afternoon. Picked up some tax forms and all set to get those done.Tooled around town looking at rentals and figuring what part of town I want to be living in come summer, but already know that pretty much.


Better get my sweetie, you all take care!

well, I am in here for a quick second. we went and got our taxes done, and then went on to Walmart to pick up some stuff. I got my hair cut while we were there, and then we went and got the kids each a prize. Tommy mentioned about getting the kids pictures done.....but I mentioned waiting until next Friday since Brandon doesn't have school. He then said "he doesn't need his picture taken." I said "I know, but you said that we need a family picture done, right?"

Sue~ I will continue to say some prayers for your mom.

Tammy~ Good luck with not quitting WW! I need to get my butt in motion.

SuzieQ~ That is a great shot! I love taking pictures, too!

Good Morning Ladies!!

Well yesterday I pushed it to the limit. Did my elliptical for one mile (haven't been on it for months) and actually did pretty good but my heart rate got up a little too high. Sanded and spackled the walls in the hallway. Dh stripped the wallpaper under the chair rail in our foyer and hallway upstairs and he is replacing it with picture frame wainscoting. So the walls have to be really smooth for painting. I'm hiring someone to paint the upper half of the walls but until then, gotta keep sanding them there walls! I also went to the paint store and looked at samples. Confused, don't know weather to go darker or lighter Headed to the liquor store to ask about a discount on 70 bottles or so of Verde for Lauren's wedding. She wants to re-label them and give them out as favors. Then I went to dance last night (haven't been for a month) and danced as much as I could. Needless to say, I was quite pooped when I got home last night.

Today plan on doing more work on the walls, back on the elliptical for a mile or more, change out the sheets on my bed and maybe get a walk in with the pups. Eat a little better today than I did last night at dance. They had fried chicken and clams. I love those little fried clams and had a little to many. I also have to make some doc appt. Missed my mammo while out sick and need to make an appt with my internist for my annual bloodwork. My pulmonary doc (who admitted me to the hospital) reviewed my bloodwork over the past several years and says that I am too anemic. Hey I could have told him that. But he says that it's a different anemia where my RBC are too immature. I have to go on iron, not a multi-vit, but gawd-awful-make-your-poop-black-constipating-stomach-cramping-IRON.

OK, I'll stop complaining. The pups are clawing at me to go out and potty. Everyone have a wonderful day!! Do indies later!

Good morning ladies...

Feeling crappy...feel like I didn't get enough sleep, but I did...just lazy I guess. Funny, I get on a schedule of getting up at 5:30 and I don't want to but once I am up I feel fine. I sleep until 7:30 or so and I feel like crap...you would think one would feel more rested...anyway.

Did 2 miles so far this morning. Getting ready to head out to Wal-Mart and get some groceries...don't need much so it shouldn't take long. Once I get back going to do another 2 miles and before the day is over I hope to have gotten in a whopping 6 miles plus some weights...we'll see how that goes.

JULES...thinking of you and your momma today

TAMMY...geez, lady, sounds like you had quite the workout yesterday...bet your arms are killing ya! Glad you are feeling better though. Love the squares...you'll have to take a pic and show us the finished product!

KATHY...good to see you posting! Come back when you have time, we miss you when you're not here!

KATY...good to see you posting too! Miss you ladies when you don't post.

Hi to everyone else

Better get going...just wanted to stop by with a quick HI Be back later.

A quick good morning ladies. I have Mom home and she is improving. *fingers crossed*
Me, lots of laundry and dusting to do, bathrooms to clean and nothing much else. DH swiffered and ran the sweeper yesterday, so it could be worse. He kept the kitchen clean and the dishes washed up. He's a keeper I guess. (not to mention he kept the drive-way shoveled so I could get in the garage, and the sidewalk clear for whatever reason...lol. .)
Basically I will be taking care of Mom and maybe even doing some cooking again...I made them pancakes & eggs for breakfast although I ate no pancakes. I will try to get back on track and in my routine, we will see.

Happy Thursday to all and hope you have a fun week-end planned. Thanks so much for your good wishes.

Update--will be back for indys when I get home...

Mom has squamous cell cancer. They removed the big cyst which was bigger than they thought. There is a lymph node that still needs to be taken care of. She has to go to a cancer specialist and will probably have to have radiation treatments.

Good Morning -


Jules - I am sorry to hear that about your mother, will continue to keep her in my prayers. Thank you so much for the card and thoughtfulk note inside! That was sweet of you and I appreciated it!

Sassy - Also a thank you to you for the Valentines card, that was nice to get yesterday too! Hope your packing is not too stressful!

Sue - Thinking of you and your mom, good to hear she is home and improving!

Katy - My week is going well, thanks! Hope you have a great day and are able to slow down soon and come chat w/ us! Curses to the scale. lol

Kathy - yay, glad you popped in.

Cristina - sorry you are feeling crappy! Maybe as the day goes on you will feel better. I didn't know you were scared of bridges! The other bridge here is 5 miles, the one that goes to Washington, that one is a little scary...Gabster won't go over that one. lol Not sure about the coloring of hair, maybe the chemical smell isn't good to breathe of something along those lines.

Mindee- Oh, I did my federal last night! Scared to do my state because I think I will owe something there, nice to get a EIC this year, perks of not having money, I guess. lol Reminded me , have to still get Gaby's hair cut!

to Tammy, Francie and Asia!

Drama w/ the R's last night.......always before bed time, pissed me off. Rach really needs to get her act together w/ her 18th birthday in Aug. we won't have to put up w/ her outburts........grrrrrr, just shove her out the door. lol ....jk.....she just is pmsing.....oh, joy. And the girls borrow stuff without asking, just walk into each others rooms. So....immature.

anyway, better get to work........a couple is on each side of me (I am in the middle - duh) at their own computers discussing vacation plans....a - h&les......like I wanna listen to it,,,,,unless they are going to take me with them!!!! lol

k- pissing me off,,,,,better go.
