Dance - I think thats awesome you are awarding yourself! Spider veins run in my family but on my moms side, all my cousins my age have them but I take after my dad, so I dont have them. However, my one cousin got that treatment and it is amazing! Its like amagic eraser. Her veins were gone on the spot! I hate telling people this because I am so young but I hope to get botox one day. For ONE REASON ONLY. I have what you call a "111". Its where I furrow my brow so much that it has gotten "stuck", so a lot of people tell me that I look angry when I never am, lol. I would love to fix that one thing and nothing else really. Its been a thorn in my side for over a year. Anyway...kudos to you for scheduling the procedure. Did they offer any sort of winter promotion? I would think business is slow now and picks up in the summer.

I've been getting botox for a few years. It works super well on 11s or 111s - I think you would like the results whenever you decide to experiment with it. I look at it as 'wrinkle prevention' if that makes sense. My really mad face is no longer really mad - it's just kinda mad but I'm okay with that

Thanks for the info on your cousin - I'm glad to hear someone's had the treatment on their veins and was happy. No crazy promotion but the price didn't sound bad and the doctor is a vein specialist instead of being a medspa thing, which made me feel better about it.

I think I'm going to take today as an exercise rest day - I'm kind of headachy. Gonna head home and crash early, I think. Talk to you tomorrow, ladies!

OK ladies. I'm so far behind I'm just going to catch up from my last post.

Dance-planning the party was fun. I helped her with her husbands 40th last year.
I went black Friday shopping in the evening so there really weren't any crowds. I think my Christmas shopping is done. Just have to make my sister the earrings she wants. Good luck with the guys you emailed. I gotta kick my butt in gear and catch up to you. You're gonna be a new woman. Its great to have non food related rewards.

Nessa- good job on not overindulging. Wish I could say the same. I'm glad one holidays is done. Congrats on 188.

Lindy-are you feeling better? I woke up with a sore throat and stuffy nose yesterday. The sore throat is gone thanks to honey. I love that stuff. Its great for everything. My nose is still stuffy but that I can live with. You gotta help keep me accountable. I've been wanting to slack on exercise and getting into the pecan pie I made. Gotta get that out of the house. I need to tell my husband to do the same for me.

I want to get in on the Christmas goal but first I have to get brave and get on the scale. I'll let you know in the next few days.

I had my first day at the soup kitchen. I was a server, its so rewarding knowing you are helping these people or just giving them some company for a few hours. I had a lot of fun doing it.

Saturday, I did a 10 minute jumping jack challenge video and have been sore ever since. I was lazy yesterday and watched the walking dead instead. Tonight I did just dance 3. I'm gonna have to pull out some of my different dvds to switch it up. I had to take a break from zumba.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Hey girls...still sick, I only ate 2 pieces of bacon, 2 pieces of lebanon bologna, and a cup of chicken broth yesterday. Just feeling blech. I plan on doing the gym at lunch. Apparantly my workout went well yesterday because I woke up sore...no pain no gain. :-)

Burgundy - just hop on the scale and do it! Girl, you got the exercise thing down, now you need to just watch your eating. Forget dieting, just eat within reason. Try to say "ok, no cakes or pies this week", next week "no pasta or rice", but still in indulge where you need to. With the exercise, it will come off. :-) You need to be tit for tat with the rest of us. :-) *steps off motivational soapbox* ;-)

Dance - hope you were just having a lethargic day and not catching what the rest of us had/have. What is your plan for working out today? Have you heard from your ex at all?

Burgundy - Hope you're feeling better! No more hiding from the scale -that's how a small oops turns into a bigger one, right? C'mon - join us in setting a christmas goal! Tell me more about the soup kitchen - that's so great that you're doing something for the community.

Lindy - Poor you - sorry about the blechs. I think I was just low energy yesterday. Back to normal today - got in a good run in the park this morning (brrr!) so I'm good on that front. Am thinking about going for a pedicure tonight after work as a treat. No word from my ex since a week ago Sunday (the sunday before thxgiving) when he was heading out on a roadtrip to see his dad. As of yesterday, he was still there acc to fb. His plan earlier was on the way back home to visit some woman (that he sort of hooked up with in the past at a school reunion) as part of his plan to, ahem, 'address his insecurities' or whatever. No idea if she ended up being okay with his plan and it's driving me nuts not to know but there's nothing I can do about it either way. I asked him to give me a few weeks (at the very least until he gets back to Denver) to get my head straight and to focus on generating new options before he gets in touch and I'm pretty sure he'll stick to that. I've been writing emails back and forth with the match guys but I'm really not looking for penpals and I feel like since I wrote them first, they need to be the ones to ask me out, don't you think? Ugh, just kind of want this part of my life to be over with already and to be done losing the weight and be dating a nice guy. How are things with you and your bf lately? Is the job market still pretty tough?

Good morning girls -

Nessa - it wouldnt be right if there wasnt some fluctuation on the scale after Thanksgiving..:-).....I wouldnt sweat it, I'm sure you will see the scale move soon. How are you doing with the gym? Any more...or less support for the hubby?

Dance - I am amazed that you are still running with the cooler weather. Especially in the morning. When it gets cold, while I enjoy it, it makes me want to sleep more, more so in the morning. How has the food eating been going? My experience with online dating was I was the agressor most of the time, I was so annoyed when people wanted to be pen pals. If you talk for a while and the guy does not initiate anything...just say something casual like "so when are we going to have a face to face conversation, or when can we discuss this topic over dinner"; if they dont schedule something at that point, then maybe you need to keep on trucking. I like a guy in control a little bit, so I totally get it.

As for me, I still have this cold but have gained my appetite back. I also passed it along to Gabriella and my co-worker, so I feel kinda bad. I got the gym in yesterday and plan to go again today. I was going to do lunch but Im craving Chipotle, so I may have to do that and just go straight after work.

Nessa - what did the scale say today? I bet that water weight came right off. What's your christmas goal going to be?

Lindy - Gym after work sounds good - I didn't make it out running this morning so I think I'm going to go in the dark after work.

Tough day today I saw on fb that my ex is driving up the CA coast which means he's going to visit that woman that he sort of hooked up with at a hs reunion a long time ago. I saw from her profile on FB that she's blond and around a size 4. She wanted to have an affair with him when she was married which I know means he would never seriously consider her for something long term due to her infidelity issues but it still kills me a little. Nothing exciting from the match guys so far. I just want to hit fast forward so bad and be over this part. Instead, I'm going to stick religiously to plan and get this weight off! I know everyone has gone through tricky times with breakups and I'm not trying to make it a bigger deal than it is - just a little sad today.

Dance - trust me....I dont think anyone is making it a bigger deal than it is. Break-ups are never easy and I swear, I would rather walk around with the flu and a broken foot than have to deal with the emotional strain of a break-up so please feel free to use this place as your sounding board, we are here for you. And your thoughts about your ex's visit are completely legit, no one wants to know their ex is with another person, whether it be a fling, relationship, heck...even a blossoming friendship...its not easy. I really am sorry you are going through this. I think once you go on a few dates, it will ease the pain. I will say, I am super proud of you for sticking it out. When I get sad I over eat, so at least you are channeling your emotions in better ways.

My no so DBF is really on my nerves today. I know him not working and me buying the Christmas presents for my kid, his kids, and family is taking a tolll on him but instead of being appreciative, he is being a complete jerk and is snapping at me at every chance he gets. I was starting to change my mind about going to the gym and said I would just do it on the weekend but now I want to go so bad and run out my frustration with him.

Lindy- i have so many vacation days that i have to use before the end if the year that im only at work like 3-4 days a week. But everyday that i am here i go work out at lunch. Im loving the time off work....but hating the time away from the gym. And well the hubby is trying to be more understanding and cookingbbetter but God love him..... He isnt much of the supportive type! Lol ur better than me tho.....if i missed working out at lunch....there is nobway i would go after work!!

Dance- the scales said 1 pound lighther today so i felt a bit better but i swear im destined to be 190 or above!!! Lol i feel like a slave to the scales some days!!! Lol i would love to be 177 by Christmas but ill be happy with any loss!! I hate that you are going thru that with ur ex. Breakups suck and it always stings so bad when they go out with other people. But like lindy said use us as you shoulder... We are here for you. That would be great if you could go on a few dates too. Maybe it will be out of his system soon. But it is really awesome that you are able to use that to work out harder and lose weight....i always turned to food!!!!! If you keep it up you will be skinny in no time!!!!

Christmas mini goals:
Nessa: 177
Lindy: 170
Dance: 175
Burgundy: ????
(btw, you girls set some serious goals!!)

Thanks, Lindy - you're right of course. Sorry to hear things are a little tricky with the bf - I vote for going to the gym to blow off some steam to lower the tension level. I've heard back more info from two of the match guys - one who said he's really looking for an avid downhill skier (to go every weekend) which is totally not me so that one is crossed off. The other was the first one to catch my eye and he wants to go for coffee on Sunday - we'll see what happens. I'd rather go for a drink Will keep you guys posted...

Nessa - congrats on the scale moving the right direction again! I'm going to see if I can channel that energy I was feeling earlier into a cold run in the dark.

Talk to you guys tomorrow...

Lindy-hope you and Gabriella are on the mend. I'm getting there, been sneezing my head off today. Are things with your bf better. I'm sure he is stressed that you are taking care of hi e and his kids and you are the easiest person to take his aggression out on. My husband does that do me too. We have been in that same boat at the beginning of our marriage.

Dance-the soup kitchen is called Fishes and Loaves, its run by the Methodist church in town. I'm a server so I get to interact with all the people that come in. Some weeks I will go in early and do all the prep work. I was the eatery manager at Kmart so they want me to learn all the jobs so if they need someone they can call me. I'm glad to learn them all. You may have to be the one to initiate some dates if these guys don't. If the ex is going to "sow some wild oats", you should too.

Nessa-glad the scale was down for you today. I feel the same way about the 190s. I'm so sick of them.

OK I'm not happy about this at all, but I got on the scale today. Its at 193. I did not lose 1 lb but its OK. Even gonna update the ticker. Moving on. My sister talked me into doing 30 day shred. We started it today and are shooting for 30 days straight. I go to Alabama in 24 days so we will end up doing the last
5 days together.

Our last few Christmas gifts came from amazon today so we are done, yay. Now just need to finish wrapping.

I went thru my closet last night and got rid of 23 shirts. Gonna give them to my cousins friends. She's 15 and they don't have a lot of money and I know she will get a lot of use out of them . Now I can lose weight and buy more.

Lost 67 pounds since April 2012 and I have 50 more to GO!! The holidays are such a struggle with all the great treats that come into the office consistently. Feels like the last pounds will be the toughest and the longest.

Snowstar-join right in. We have a great support system here. What plan are you doing?

OK I made myself do a golds gym dance workout on the wii after 30ds. I'm gonna start doing 30ds earlier in the day and keep up my wii workouts at night.
