Afternoon All,
It is a nice sunny day here in Ohio. My sdd and I went to Curves this morning and then we came home to decide to walk to Subway for lunch and then continue on a little walk. When it was all said and done we walked about 3 miles. Which is a nice little hike. Glad the weather is nice today and not bone numbing chilly! So hopefully the scales will be nice tomorrow evening at Curves and on Friday morning at school. I really want to prove the other teams wrong and win the challenge. Is that selfish of me?
Robyn, a house all to yourself. I bet you sure are so lonely, right now? Huh. Hope you enjoyed your time to yourself. A clean house don't last long around here. Between twin boys and their sister they do a darn good job of making it look like a natural disaster has struck. So are you still enjoying your excerise classes at school? A couple people who are doing the Biggest Loser Contest want me to workout with them afterschool. But I can't where I am helping with the afterschool program. But I think we are going to start excerise with the kids in there. So that will be a few more minutes of excerise for me. Enjoy the rest of your peace and quiet!
Mouse, glad you were able to get some swim time in. Sounds like the ankle brace seemed to help you a lot. You need to take better care of yourself! That is one of my goals for this coming year is to take better care of myself and not push myself on the back burner and do for everyone else. Glad that you were able to find your bread at another store so much cheaper. Did you finally warm up any today?
Pam, congrats on the two pound lost. That total gym must be helping you. You are going to look great in your little black dress on the cruise. You go girl! One of our male friends is teasing me about getting skinny and wearing a binki this summer. I told him the only way I would get in a two piece bath suit is if it was a tankini. He said that if he bought me a binkini I would have to wear it since it was a gift. I laughed and said no way Jose! This must have been the weekend for grades. Because that is what I did on Friday night and Saturday morning. Enjoy the rest of your day!
Summer are you enjoying your long weekend? Hope everyone is back to feeling healthy at your house now. Did you dh ever get sick?
Suie, you are a brave lady to do belly dancing with your girls at school. Sounds like they had a lot of fun. Is belly dancing very easy to learn? I have done a few of my walk away the pounds tapes with my students a couple of times. Maybe I need to start doing that again with them just to get their little brains focused more in the mornings.
Ginny, congrats on adopting another cat. So is his name really Peeping Tom? Congrats on squeezing into a size 10 pair of jeans. I bought earlier this fall a couple of pairs of 16's and was able to wear them a couple of times before I gained some weight back. So my goal is to squeeze into them by the end of Feb. if not before.
Well I need to run some stuff over to my mil's. So I better go do that. I will talk to you all later.
Have a wonderful afternoon.
Kerry

Hi. I am new to 3FC. I discovered it last week when I started Weight Watchers. I teach middle school reading and language arts in Central Florida. I'm excited about joining in with this group of teachers. I weighed in today and lost 5 pounds. I hope that 3FC will provide me with lots of support during my weight loss journey.

Welcome Leia! We are glad that you found us. We are a fun loving bunch of teachers and our resident bus driver, Ginny. We are very supportive! Congrats on your 5 pound loss! Keep up the great work.
I teach 7th and 8th grade MH students here in Southeast Ohio. My class is all boys this year. One of them has the hots for me. The other day he said my nickname should be Juilette. I just tend to ignore his comments and not to encourgage him. You will be hearing me getting stressed out here in the next couple of months when I have my alternate assessments to work on and my IEP's. So just bear with me.
Once again welcome aboard. We look forward to getting to know you here in the next couple of weeks.
Love ya,
Kerry

Yeah. I'm sure that I will be venting in here too especially at the beginning of March. We have our state assessment that determines our NCLB info at the end of Feb. After that test is over, it's practically impossible to teach anything at all. Thanks for the welcome.

Wow,
I have too much time on my hands today. I have managed with the exception of getting grades finished to do a whole lot of nothing. I made my bed, then got pulled into the bed as i was passing by and had to lay down for an hour. Those bed rays will get you everytime...

Ginny: I think you are right......CONGRATULATIONS ON THE SIZE 10! I am so jealous. I am still in a sixteen. All my sixteen pants are very loose in the legs. But, fit around the waist. What's a girl to do? But, sixteen is a lot better than where I was!

Kerry: Wow, sounds like you got quite a walk in today. I am trying to get motivated to excercise today. I think after dinner......


Leia: WELCOME! I teach Middle School Math in North Carolina. I think you will find plenty of support here. Congrats on the five pounds.

Hey to everyone else!


Pam

Thanks Ginny!

Well today was brutal. We had a huge storm last night and someone forgot to check the road conditions this morning and cancel school! I almost got hit by a semi truck going down a narrow unplowed highway. Partly my fault since I was driving in the wrong lane - ok it was the only lane where you could see tire marks in the snow but silly me for not wanting to get stuck in snow drifts! just about killed myself (and my 2 year old son who was in the car with me) as well as my teacher assistant who was too afraid to drive herself! nice.... i had classes of 4 or 5 kids because the school busses all got stuck in the snow! I'm just glad to be finally home and safe! Gonna take out my frustrations tonigt by doing some taebo and imagining a certain someone's face when I punch!

Evening, all.
My day was backwards. I set out to go to the gym and swim, then the lab and Big Lots. I refuse to buy paper products in the regular store because they cost so much more. I can get 9 double-rolls of toilet paper for $5 at Big Lots... Also found a photo album I needed to finish that baby gift.
On my way to the gym, the PT office called me: they had a cancellation at the last minute. So, I went to Big Lots, then the lab for the blood work, then PT... and finally made it over to the gym about 3:00. On my way there, though, I got a major headache. I don't usually get migraines, and figured this one because I didn't eat lunch. I get yelled at for doing that, because that just makes my insulin worse, so I figured it was low blood sugar since I've been on that new med to make my body use the insulin better. I stopped, got some milk and something to eat... took some tylenol, went on. But, I only swam for 30 minutes because the headache wouldn't go away, and the water was freezing. That's okay... I got the swim in, and I'm officially discharged from PT. The PT thinks that my primary care doctor might have something about me seeing a neurologist for my ankle... I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm definitely tired of falling on my nose, but I really don't want ANOTHER specialist! I already see a gastroenterologist, endocrinologist, and an orthopedist. And, really, if I have to see another specialist, I want it to be a person that is going to look past my weight and treat me like a person that needs help. I know that my weight complicates the ankle problem, but I can't do anymore about my weight than I am already doing! I am under medical treatment, I have bloodwork done, I'm on meds to control as much of the endocrine disorder as possible, I'm on a very strict eating plan that I mostly follow (only 67 carbs today, and most of those were vegetable or milk carbs; this is significantly less than a person on a diabetic diet is allowed to have!), and I get regular exercise! By all rights, I should be dropping pounds like hot bricks (as a friend of mine so eloquently put it last night!). I feel like I'm being incredibly selfish, though.
Ginny: A bear of little brain? My favorite bear, and his buddy, my favorite donkey!
Welcome to our new member (who, since I'm also forgetful, I've forgotten the name of!)!
Susie: ACK!!!! I've had that happen to me before! Had to drive one way in the mess, and then home in it when they dismissed early!

Hello people! My family arrived home late this afternoon. The transmission on the beach buggy failed this morning. They are in VERY bad moods! Thank goodness I didn't go! So, they brought all their bags in and dropped them unceremoniously in the living room that had JUST been 1/2 way cleaned! They were starving... and ready to eat the roast that I had waiting in the crock pot. Someone (not too sure WHICH one!) tracked dirt onto the clean kitchen floor and then the youngest dropped his whole plate upside down right in the middle of the floor...... mashed spuds, gravy, corn the works! THEN in his angst, he tracked the mess into the living room and onto the carpet.... 3 gravy corn greenbean beef foot prints ........ SIGH! What is a momma to do?!

I did my school work on Friday.....and didn't put it in my bookbag and NOW I can't find it! YIKES! I'm sure that it is around...somewhere...maybe the printer tray?!

Hello to our new friends! Glad that you could join us! I'm the official 1st grade teacher among a bunch of middle and high school teachers! As I mentioned earlier, anyone (with the exception of my 2Princes) over the age of about 8 gives me hives! You will find that WE understand the pressure and joys of teaching! ....and the fun of the teacher's lounge! ...oh and the fun of faculty meetings, end of terms, NCLB, and a billion other things!

Gotta run.... find my homework, make sure that I've scraped the crud off my clean kitchen floor, work on the greasy footprints...AND do sub plans for 1/2 day tomorrow! (After somewhere around 18 years in the classroom, I'm being sent to some sort of training regarding how to properly and safely "physically contain" out of control children. 18 years.... NOw is a good time to show me this!)

Take care,
meeee (oh, my name is Robyn... the one that someone called a SmartAss earlier! Don't let her fool you! I'm very very very sweet!) (and to Pam! hehehehe)

Hello again....

Robyn-well, you should have taken a picture of the 1/2 way cleaned....at least you would have been able to remember that you had cleaned it! Hope everyone's mood improves.

Mouse- not sure if it is good news or bad being released from PT...completely understand that you would want to see a doctor who would want to really listen to you and not prejudge by appearance..........hope your headache gets better.

Susie- glad you got to and from school in one piece. I get so darned angry when the wrong call is made regarding school or when the weather forcasters totally miss the boat. (that happened to me Sat nite, had to drive home in a blizzard that was 3 hours early) Let all that stress out on the taebo, not in the kitchen.

Pam- we all need a day like that from time to time...glad you got some time in to relax. Don't get too excited about my jeans, my stomach is so flabby- still looks pregnant and my youngest is 10. Gotta go work those abs. Hey, you have a great attitude........and you will be in a smaller sized pair of jeans very soon!

Leia- welcome! Are you on Flex or Core for WW? (I am a WW member also).

Kerry- sounds as though you had a great day between the 3 miler and curves and a lunch out. What a great way to start your week! Are you still going to TOPS meetings on Tuesday nites (or was it Monday?).

Took Dd sledding this afternoon. (went down a few times myself!) then finished some straightening up and got dinner on. Today was SO nice.....very little running around. Tom, and yes his full name is Peeping Tom (everytime I saw him outside he was peeping in a door or window at my house) is a sweetheart. He has completely moved in, at ease....acts as though he has been here forever. Now Fidgie and RC just have to get used to him.

Okie dokie......I have babbled enough....see ya tomorrow!
Ginny

Sounds like everyone has been as busy as me. I was so extremely sick a few weeks ago, haven't been on here since. I got so behind at school. We went back on a Wednesday and I missed Thursday and Friday. I have not missed any days at school this year so it was a mess. It was good that I had that smaller class. It is so wonderful. I've been so busy though that I haven't worked out in 2 weeks. Magically I didn't gain any weight. I could not believe it. I was set to see an increase in the weight on the scale but nothing happened.

I got back in the groove of things today though. I did my workout and was about to die but I made it through. I am ready to get back going with things.

A big hello to everyone on the thread. I've missed reading everyone's posts. I tried to catch up on everything. I think I missed some stuff though. I'll check back in tomorrow.

I had decided that the 1/2 of the kids you kept ate you, Dawn! Sorry that you've been ill AND overwhelmed! Summer has also been sick! Nothing like feeling icky and needing sub plans to mess EVERYthing up, huh?!

Leia, I'm also on WW.... doing Flex!

Pam, had fun chatting with you! Sorry I had to bail in a hurry. My boys (dh included) were NOT in a good mood when they arrived home! Why irriate dh further???

Gin, I PM you! More than you asked for? You asked me about something that I truly KNOW and love! So... sorry for being so MEEEE when writing back! Hope the weather cooperates for our favorite busdriver!

Susie, may your day also be filled with weather safe for commuting! Will you belly dance with your students today? Have fun!

Mousie, being the mother that I am... go see whatever specialist the doctor recommends for your ankle! I know that seeing doctors and teaching do not agree! However, you need to sort out your ankle issues before you get seriously injured in one of your falls! May the doctors "HEAR" you instead of just "SEEING" you! I've listened to my mother talk about this problem for YEARS!

Kerry, you are SO good! Great motivation for us! ....mean people suc%! (Talking about the way those people at your school were talking about the custodian lady!) Keep up the great work! You are going to win that challenge for sure!

Summer? Summer? Where are you, girl?! Hope all is well with you and yours! You know I miss you when you're gone!

Gotta run fix some oatmeal as the morning is ticking by already!
Don't you think that we should get Tuesday off for Mrs.MLK Day?
Happy 300th Ben Franklin! HEYYY that should be a holiday too!

take care,
meee

Ginny & Meee-

I am on the flex plan and love it. It doesn't feel like a diet at all to me. It's just teaching me to control how much I eat. Well, I'm off to school.

Morning All,
So are we all glad to be back in school again? I was not motivated to get up this morning when the alarm went off. I could have easily went right back to sleep. Since we are having rainy,cold weather all day.
Mouse, I agree with Robyn about the specialist issue. I think you need to go and take care of yourself. You need to be healthly first. Once you have all your medical issues under control, then your frame of mind will change and you will be able to lose your weight. I really think our minds play tricks on us when it comes to weight loss. Does this make sense to you? I know that I had to readjust my mind set in order to start losing weight again. Hope you are having a good day at work.
Pam are you well rested after your nap yesterday? LOL So were you able to squeeze in any exercise time after dinner last night? I did feel great after my little walk yesterday with my sdd. I was able to pack up a few more boxes of knicknacks and candles. Then I was lazy last night and watched The 40 year-old Virgin. That was a funny movie. It was just the laugh I needed after my long and depressing weekend. Hope you have a great day with your kids today.
Robyn, did you ever find your schoolwork that you did on Friday? Sounds like your house was destroyed in no time flat last night. Sorry to hear that your nice clean kitchen is no longer clean. Thank you for your kind words and good vibes about my team winning the challenge. Keep sending those postive vibes my way!
Summer, hope all is well with you. We have missed hearing from you. Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend for a change!
Ginny,yes I still go to TOPS on Tuesday nights. I am hoping for a great weigh in tonight. According to my scales at home this morning, I was down two pounds from last week. So I am hoping that holds true tonight when I go weigh in. Hope the weather cooperates with you driving today. We are suppose to get some snow this evening. Supposely it is not to amount to much if anything.
Leia, isn't it amazing when you start a diet and start to take a good look at the food you eat. I just started to keep a food log of what I eat daily. I was amazed at the calories in some items. So I have changed my eating habits even more to drop the weight. Hope you have a great day at school today!
Dawn, glad to hear from you. I loved Robyn's comment to you. I am glad that you are feeling better. I bet you felt a little bit better after working out yesterday. I am glad that the scales were nice to you when you weighed in.
Zelma, Michele, Sue, and Fran hope all is well with you. We miss hearing from you .
Have a great afternoon!
I hope to be able to come back here this evening to change my weight tracker.
Take care,
Kerry

Hi!
Kerry- hope the WI is a great as you hope.........drive carefully coming home from TOPS tonite.

Leia- I love flex too! I have used core to kick start my lazy butt...but prefer flex for daily life. It is the diet that isn't a diet! Keep up the good work!

Dawn- glad you are feeling better. So many nasty bugs going around this winter. Great that you did not gain! Hope you gain your strength back soon.

Aw, the wisdom and wit of Robyn. Loved your comment to Dawn.......and hey, I like Ben, lets celebrate his 300th! Wonderful idea. (too soon to celebrate Mrs. MLK, she is still alive........might be offended......... ). Was the oatmeal yummy?

Woke up at 4 stinking 30 this am..........so got a 3.5 mile walk in. I will be brain dead tonite, for sure. Other than that ok day......new kitty is working out pretty well. He acts as though he has been here forever.
Busy nite tonite- so see ya tomorrow!
Ginny

Thumbs up

We're in the middle of one of our 3 standardized testing sessions (the other one is in April)--YUCK! We run a screwy schedule for the first 3 days of the new term. Kids don't know where to be or WHEN! Some are playing dot-to-dot and arguing with us if we call them on it! I LOVE MY JOB!

Seriously, I have 3 brand new classes: Spanish 1 (2 sections) and Spanish 2. My 2's is a class of 11 (what a dream!). My 1's are classes of 24 and 28--How do they expect these kids to learn anything or to get the help they need from me?!?! They reduced our department by half a position several years ago, which was OK at the time. However, we have the 2 largest classes the district has seen in a LONG time and they won't hire anyone in ANY department. They just keep cramming more kids into our classes and tell us to deal with it! Then they wonder why the number of kids failing multiple classes has sky-rocketed. DUH!! At least part of the problem is class size!

Anyway....in spite of my stress last week and this week, I LOST 3 pounds! I have now officially lost everything I gained in December! Next step.....Onederland (only 19 pounds to go)!

I've managed to get up and walk everyday before work since break ended. Plus I usually do something more after school. I have met my January walk goal and am now aiming for 50 miles by the end of the month!

I don't know where this motivation is coming from, but I want it to stick around for a LONG time!!

Have a great Tuesday afternoon and evening!

Michele
