Hello Ladies,

I had a 1.4 weight loss this past week. That put me about 6.8 lbs so far. Feeling real good about that. This week I am going to increase my exercise.

Mooz - What a beautiful poem, thanks for sharing it with us.

Nita - Congrats on the job. I'm sure you will get lots of steps with walking around the stadium. I'm with you, I'm not much of a hockey fan, but i'm sure you'll get into once the games start.

Hal - I agree with you, it's much easier to diet in the spring. I think there are so many veggies & fruits to chose from at this time. I can't believe that the school year is almost over.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Default Need Prayers

Tomorrow there is a big meeting here at work. We are hoping that we will know something. We have a new CEO, and he has been making all kinds of changes, he has sold parts of the company, and has said to expect a layoff of 1200 or so employees. The talk in our group is layoffs within our group, but also outsourcing.

So my prayer is that God give me the strength to accept whatever comes my way. I have been with this company for 24 years and they have been good years. I'm trying to keep everying in perspective, I have my health, my family, my chick friends, my chuch, a nice home.

So say a prayer for me...

Hi Patty,

I most definitely will remember you tomorrow.

1 Day -- CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss. I am very proud of you. I have been having some difficulty with my lower denture since I had another tooth pulled last Monday. As a result I have not been able to eat normal, especially when it comes to salads. I am going to my denture person tomorrow so hopefully he will be able to fix the problem. I did go bowling today and didn't do too badly.

Take care and my best to everyone!
Anita

Hello ladies,
Good news, we'll it's not the best of news, but i'm trying to be very positive. Our whole group was outsourced effective 7/1. We are only guaranteed a job of 90 days, so i'm hoping within those days, that my performance will be really good. For some reason if they lay me off, then I would be eligible for the severence package, which for me would be close to a years pay. I'm really hoping this new company works out. So i'm not out of the woods, but it's looking good. So I can still use all the prayers out there...

Nita - Wow, you have been having all kinds of dental problems. Hopefully you start to feel better. Thanks for the encouragement. I often think of you and your 50 lb loss. You are such a encouragement with all the activities that you do.

Cat - Wow, that was fast getting your book out. Once it is published, can we purchase one? Or tell us where to buy one?

I did not do to good on my food the last two days. I overate, but luckily it was things like jello, or veggies. Today I had pizza, but I told myself I wasn't going to stress out over the food today, with all that was going on. But tomorrow i'm back OP..

1day--sorry about the job news. Will certainly pray--I know how hard the job search is.
Yes, it is amazing how quickly books can be printed now. The first should actually be done tomorrow. Wow!

I'm not quite sure myself how to order them, but will let you know when I do. I suppose if I posted it, it might be advertising, which is strictly forbidden, so I will either PM everyone or give the link to the web site if you can order on line.

Default RE: Sum, sum, SUMMERTIME....!!!



OK girls... I had to go to page two, I repeat 2, I said TWO to find us!

Ha, Ha, Ha... I have been very OP this week. Proud of myself. I am loving those new Arby salads. My personal favorite is the Martha's Vineyard with the diced apples and dried cranberries! Yum...

I am giving my first day of final exams now. Oh yeah...

I'll only have about 2 weeks for free time, but that works for me.

How IS everyone????

Hello Ladies,

We'll I think my job situation is starting to sink it... i'm excited, but yet depressed... I will be about two weeks short of my 25 years with my company. But i'm trying to be positive & looking forward to this new opportunity. My weigh in is tomorrow morning & i'm somewhat expecting a weight gain... with the stress that i've had all week, I'm hoping it will be small.

Hal - I will have to drop by Arbys and try the salad. I have been eating the Wendy's taco salad.. it' only 7 pts & chips make a additional 5..

Hope everyone is having a great day!!!!

Hi there chickies - just a quick call from Paul's computer. Hopefully I will have my new one next weekend and I will be able to post more often. I am still walking and trying to have mostly NC (No Crap) days. I think it was Shad or Madcat who started that in their journals. I did not succeed on Wed or today unfortunately!!
Sinead is going to Australia on 10 June, with her friend, for 8 weeks and it looks as if Paul will be going to America on 19 June for 8 weeks with Camp America. He has been accepted and just needs to get the Visa sorted. He will be working with special needs children. So the house is going to be quiet this summer with only Orla here.
Gotta go now for a walk so I hope you are all having a good Sat.

Hi Everyone,
All of a sudden I am very sleepy and it is only 2:30 in the afternoon. We are going to play cards across town this evening so I may just take a quick nap. My eating could be a whole lot better but tomorrow is always a good day to start. Only 11 more days until I fly to PA. Time sure does move quickly! I passed my drug test for the Arena now all they have to do is check my background. I am hoping to get into the training class before I leave, however, I may have to wait until I return.

My hand is almost back to normal except for a scar which seems to get dimmer each day.

Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weekend!!!!

Anita

Nita--glad the chiro is working for you.

Hal--only two weeks off? Are you teaching summer school or taking classes?

Had my appeal turned down on the work on my foot. Don't know what we do next. The "expert" podiatrist said I should try stretching my heel cords instead. Of course, I do yoga, and stretch all the time.

So not much exercise and lots of stress at work. It used to be if you were evaluated and disagreed, you could raise your objections and they would answer, and sometimes even change. But guess they are too busy for that now--and I must surely have the worst monitor on all the sites.

I should look into swimming at the health/rehab club which is only a couple of blocks from home. Of course, I'm not entirely sure my foot will stand up to swimming. It's non-weight bearing, but of course it moves a lot.

Mooz--your kids sound so adventurous. Where in the USA will Paul be?

Well, better head for bed. G'night all. Sorry to all I missed.

Catlover,

I guess it is just you and me this Sunday. I keep hearing complaints from my daughters on how they are being treated at their respective jobs. It surely doesn't make one excited to keep going to work. It seems there are always a whole of supervisors and just a few workers.

I am trying to get the house in order before I leave on the 2nd. Actually I am getting excited about going back home to visit with the grandchildren and children. I can hardly wait to give them all hugs and kisses.

This low carb diet is sure getting a lot of recognition. I am still of the opinion that WW and the "old" diabetic diet are the best. If only we could tell ourselves we just need a little bit on our plates and not only will we feel more energetic but we will also be more healthy in the years to come. I made my diet mandarin pie again yesterday and everyone really enjoyed it. Tonight it will be small steaks on the grill and a hefty salad.

Take care all and post when you get a chance!
Anita

Hello Ladies,
Sorry I didn't post this weekend. I was trying to keep myself busy. I think my job situation started to sink in & I was getting depressed. I had a good cry & then said no more. My weigh in was saturday morning & I lost 1 lb. I was really surprised, I figured I was going to have a gain with everything going on. Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment, so I'll see how I've lost since my last visit with him. Getting things done, since i'll be having to switch insurance companies, not sure if all my doctors are with the new plan.

Cat - so sorry to hear that they turned you down. Maybe the swimming will help.

Nita - Good news that you passed the drug test (just kidding)..& I'm sure you'll pass the background check. That will be exciting to work their. Does this area also put on concerts? Just think if they do & Clay comes back to town..you'll get to see him free, and all the other concerts. I'm sure that your kids & grandkids will be excited to see you too. Now is your husband staying home? How long will you be gone?

Mooz - hope you get your computer soon. Where is Paul going to? I'm sure Sinead will have a great time. Your right your house will be quite for a while.

We'll I need to run... Need to get ready for bed!

Thin, Mitchellez, Chacha - Hope to hear from you all soon!

1day--WTG on the loss. Tho it's cliche, a good cry can help.

Found the health club/rehab center (about a block and a half from my house as the crow flies, tho a few blocks as you have to drive), they gave a free two-week membership to anyone who came for the open house! So I will try it. Realized I had no idea where my swim goggles were, so went out to get some. Will I actually get there tomorrow? Tune in for the next step . . .
