Hi, all.
I'm trying to decide if I want to go to the party that the gym is having tonight. My one friend and her husband are going. I hadn't registered because I wasn't sure I was going to go, and tomorrow is a long day at work (IE, its the day I don't have a break at all). I want to go swimming, really, that's all, and I can do that down here now.
Has anybody noticed that our sigs are gone????

There was a post somewhere along the line.... that stated that they were going to "fix" things so our signatures only appear the first time on each page to assist those with slow loading internet access....as some of the signatures had gotten outrageously huge etc... one of the 3fc gals said that THIS way we can continue to use the sigs while allowing dialup folks to still visit the site... As long as it is free, I am keeping my complaints to myself! I know this ONLY because I noticed it earlier and went digging looking for WHY they disappeared! Baseball in January in the snow, Gin? Mouse, GO for a little while, at least! gotta run...cleaning is FARRR from over and dh just walked thru and clicked his tongue at me being online... ahem, it isn't the clicking that is moving me, trust me!
take care,
meee yet again!

Baseball all year round........last night was the team meeting and training for Ds's American Legion team (this one will play most of the summer) and this morning was Ds's pitching coach (an hour away) and batting clinic (we pay big $$ for this one). So, yes, there is baseball all year round.......

An awful day for eating for me, this whole week has been crummy......did get a walk/run in (2 AP's). Dealing with TOM and baseball.......

Robyn- thanks for the input on sigs, I never would have figured it out.

Blabbed too long here......gotta get dinner on ladies. Nite!

Hi. My name is Melody and I am a Special Education Teacher for grades K-3.
This is my first year to teach special education and I love it. Previously, I taught 3 years of Junior and High School English. I am making 2006 the year to finally lose weight and get healthy. I started last week at 264 and today I am at 259. My goal is to lost 10 pounds a month until I get to my goal of around 130 (I am 5'1").

Hi, again, all.

Welcome, Melody. I'm a high school special education teacher, but my kids are about K-3rd grade cognitively. Some are higher, but not too much. I don't think I have any that are above a 4th grade level, except for my one kiddo that is emotionally disturbed and is with me for academics.
Let's see... I went swimming locally. The gym party isn't a swimming party. In the past, it has been south of the gym, at a restaurant. This year, its being held at a Don Pablo's that is closer to the gym. I can't do much Mexican because you know they never use low-fat cheese and I definitely can't eat tortillas in any form! They have their holiday party after the holidays beacuse the staff is mixed between Jewish beliefs and Christian beliefs, so its easier to do it in January. I went last year and won a gift card to Sharper Image. I decided not to go this year. If it had been a different day in our schedule, I might have gone, but I just don't feel like the drive, plus I don't feel welcome there anymore after what happened this weekend.
I did 50 minutes at the gym I joined down here, and shared the lane with 2 other guys at the end (that is one thing I liked about the other gym... nobody ever wants to share lanes, but here, they expect 3 people to share the lanes and their pool isn't as wide as the other gym!). I've decided that my January goals were going to be 8 hours ... 3 days a week, a minimum of 45 minutes each time, and 8 miles, or 3/4 of a mile each time. I'm hoping to go over, but that way if we run into bad weather, or I get a lot of work from my grad class, I won't feel too bad. And, I will still swim at the other gym on Saturdays because it is too late for the one friend I still have there to hire somebody to replace me at the children's lessons. I am also glad I didn't register for the KeyWest swim at the other gym; I did it last year and finished 3rd at it, so was going to do it this year because they were doing t-shirts this year.
Well, I stopped to get barbecue (no sauce), with green beans for dinner... the only things I'm not allowed to eat are the corn bread and the piece of pecan pie I bought as a treat. I figured I deserved it!
Robyn: I just noticed it was gone, I didn't look for a reason. It wasn't a complaint... just a "Wow, its gone!"

OK.....here comes the week from H*LL! I HATE the week the terms change!! Especially between semesters! Not only do we have all sorts of tests to administer and grade. But we have STUPID inservice meetings taking up more than HALF our "work time". PLUS, we have new classes to get ready for! Oh, and then there's grades due 3 days after the term ends! This week is ALWAYS a challenge for me as far as eating and exercise goes. But I've promised myself I'm NOT going to let it get the best of me! I WILL walk and I will TRY to eat reasonably!

, Melody! I know you will find a lot of support among these ladies! I know I have (even though I'm not always that good at posting )

Have a nice evening!

Michele

Hey!
Me again, the one with no life....
Ok, first and foremost.....Welcome to Zelma and Melody!!!!
Wow, I am inspired by the weight loss.. You look awesome. BY THE WAY, HOW DID YOU GET THAT PICTURE UP THERE? I've been trying to figure out how to upload a before and "now" picture. Not smart enough to do it....

Ok, have I bothered to drag the book bag out of my car yet????UH< no....did i clean the car???No.....Geez, what did I do???Ok, bought a formal dress....Need to lose about ten pounds to be able to breathe in it, and if by cruise time it doesn't look like I can breathe....that thing is going back, we got hubby's suit, and our luggage....Now, to find a plane reservation where I won't have to sell my children....HMMMMM>ok....

Poor GInny: We go through all sports here....Currently it's football.....and basketball, move on to spring training.....Ughhhh, I will be pm'ing you about that book.......

Robyn: We have clutter too....It won't go away...

Welcome to Zelma, Tonita and Melody! It's great to have new friends around. Zelma, my sister has lived in Australia for over 30 years {in Taree}. Still haven't made it there, but maybe some day. Congratulations on your fabulous weight loss--You lost one of me! (175 is in my current weight neighborhood).

I am happy to report that I am back in the WW mode--and feeling very good. Down 3.6 this week! (Could have something to do with not eating enough fat, sodium, and sugar to sink a ship,as I did for the past several weeks/months ..) The exercise fairy has yet to visit me as of yet, but there is hope. I've been working at establishing my routines that help me do well. I know that I have to have them and follow them in order to stay on-track. I am definitely in honeymoon mode now, and haven't had any big challenges with my food in the past week. I did manage to have take-out pizza the other night and not get crazy with it, so that was a minor victory!

Is everyone else's calendar so full that it it crazy?

Break did not seem like 13 days...am already looking forward to the long weekend! We spent all of the past week getting back into school mode with my preschoolers (practicing the rules and expectations and basically reminding them that they are not the CEU (center of the universe); other people do exist and have needs. They were all really happy to be back--very huggy--lovey--o-thank-god-I got -to-come-back-ish, so that softens the blow of coming back a bit. Most of my kiddos are very at-risk and school is often the safest place that they know (certainly the most predictable!)

Still haven't taught myself how to put the tracker at the bottom of my signature. ...34.4 pounds to goal!

Have a great week everyone. Fran
