Hi all!

Another weekend gone and a new week ahead. Been contemplating going on Jenny Craig to kick start this weight loss, but I know that I won't because of the money. Things are so tight right now...it drives me batty. Ah well, baby steps. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Nice to see you back Jo and Raff. Congrats on the loss Raff, and on the start to a new year Jo. Good luck!

Just a quick dash in and out. Just finished baking the bread for the week, so now I can head to bed.

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I've decided to go back to WW. I'm going to my first meeting today and I really hope that I'll have a good leader and someone that will motivate me. My biggest hurdle will be mindset, organization and self-talk. I need to be strong for this. I know that if I can talk myself into not needing the food to placate my nerves, drown my sorrows, or address my boredonm, then I will be able to be successful and help my body get healthy.

Wish me luck guys!

Hi guys! Where is everyone? Here it is the eve before my week one weigh in and I haven't heard from anyone! I hope you are all well and not involved in weather related phenomenon (something there has been just TOO much of lately...)

Hope to hear from you soon??? And I'll post the results tomorrow!

Weigh in was successful...down 3 pounds. Not stellar for the supposed "first week" jump, but I'm quite chuffed about the whole loss. All is well. Hope it is the same for you all. Anyone hear about Brandy lately?

Well done on the loss, Lorraine.

Remember the adage, slow and steady wins the race.

Haven't heard anything from Brandy and really quite worried right now.

Things are mega busy for me at the moment. Soooooo tired too, but I guess it'll be worth it in the end.

Oh Ho Jo! Yay! A someone! Sorry to hear you're so busy...light at the end of the tunnel...I can see it!

I'm worried about Brandy too. I sure hope she's just busy with baby stuff and that all is well.

Super quick update - hurricane, evacuated, another hurricane, it's a girl. Blah blah blah, much house cleaning and renovating - the girl who lived here before us was an animal, it's all crazy. Settling down eventually I HOPE. More in a few days. Or weeks. Hard to say. SMOOCH!

10 days since I last posted, and not one post in between.

Hope everyone is ok.

Hope you had fun at your concert!

Things are still unsettled here and I don't have regular internet access. We're still trying to clear out, clean up, paint, and move in. UGH. But I should be back...well, soon. One day. I hope!

Keith Urban was fab. Very sexy too!

Brandy, sounds like your new place must have been in a mess. Have you bought it or are you renting?

Glad your concert was fun!

We did NOT buy, thank goodness. We just wanted to be near my parents for a while as Mark works from home (and goes to Jersey once a month) so it doesn't really matter where we live. I don't think we'll stay here very long as it's a very VERY small little bump of a town. Nice being close to the folks, tho! The big issue is that there's nothing to rent really so we had to take what we could find. It's a nice place, the owners are great people, but the last resident was a mess. A. Mess.

The place was horrible. First, we thought the girl would never move out. She told us when she'd vacate, then she kept changing it. Finally we said look, we're making arrangments so don't change the date again. Then she tried going to the owners who told her the same thing - hey, tough nugies, you picked the date. THEN we had that hurricane SO the place sat (dirty and empty) for three weeks. She did not clean out the refrigerator before she left and there was no electricity all that time. She was also a heavy smoker and had a cat she didn't clean up behind. So the ceilings were yellow and the carpet in one bedroom STANK of pee. She also managed to break every light fixture in the place, don't ask how. I can't even imagine. And the people we rent for rent it to us for NOTHING and "as is" so we had to buy 7 new fixtures. And repaint every room. And pay someone to redo the ceilings. And the clean up was NOT easy. I don't know how someone can live like that. But it's done now and it's like a new place. Lots of closets, huge ones. Big kitchen. Two bedroom, two bath, covered parking (we finally got a car), big yard. We're still getting settled but it's clean so that helps.

It's been an adventure.

Hi Everyone ... I'm back!!!

Can you believe our computer has been playing up for weeks and weeks and weeks!!! Have not been able to send or receive ANY emails and I feel like I've lost touch with the rest of the world!! Anyway it's sorted out now for the time being at least!

Will catch up over the weekend when I have a bit more time ... Sophie is eager to use the computer right now!!

Oh yes, just to let you know ... no change here!!
