Default Wednesday

Hi girls. What a day...the boss got mad (not at me ) and took off. He tried to be a nice guy and it turned around to bite him. I just hope he doesn't go drinking at 9:30 a.m. I'll have to call his cell and check on him later. It does leave me to catch up on my work and talk to you girls!

Lisa: The cinnamon swirls sound real good, I've never tried taebo but I think my sister used to do it. It looks like fun.
Elizabeth: thanks for the welcome and thanks for starting the thread!
Serena: the butter was a great analogy I'll have to tell DH tonight.
Sarah: the WW snacks sound real good, I did notice my grocery store was now selling WW chocolates.
Nori: good luck on the rower, you can do it! I'm just trying to work up to 2 miles of BATP.
Catherine: my kids have been asking for chinese too, maybe I'll get it for them this weekend. The skating sounds fun, whenever I see the diet pepsi (or coke) commercial of everyone rollerskating I wish I could move like that.
Lori: I like the olympics also. I loved your exercise quote too, I can't wait till I get to that stage.
Danielle: way to exercise!!! Wow!! By the way, where do you download your music from. I bought an MP3 for audiobooks but haven't downloaded any music yet.

Does anyone have any special songs they recommend for workouts?

Menu: cereal, Lean Cuisine, yogurt, granola bar, salad, veggie wrap, skinny cow Pts. about 24 Exercise: 15 min BATP, Water: 32 oz?, Vitamins: no

DH wants to be sure I'm posting his weight loss for him. I'll check in later as I'm sure I'll be bored. Wish me luck tonight on avoiding or savings points for the birthday cake and pizza

Default Hi Gang - New here... sorta

I'm not exactly new to the 3FC forums. I'll tell a little of my story.

I'm 30 years old and live in Washington D.C. I came to 3FC orginially about a year ago. When I started my diet last January, I weighed 234. By June 2005, I was down to 187. Then something hit me hard. My boyfriend and I broke up and I fell into a huge downward spiral. I became very depressed and my weight shot back up to 202.

I started my program again on 1-3-06 (weighed 200.2) and so far, pretty good. As of yesterday I'm down to 194.2. I've noticed for some reason the weight is coming off slower than last year. But, I'm determined to stick with it.

I'm back here at 3FC for support and motivation. I'm so pleased this forum exists where people can get together and share similar stories and experiences.

So there we go. That's me.

Default Wednesday!

Hello all! Everyone ready for the last half of the week? You are all doing awesome with your plans and exercise. Woo Hoo!!!!

Elizabeth, fabulous job meeting your V-Day goal early! You rock!!!

Lori, wow 76 sticks of butter! Yowza, that's alot of butter! What an inspiration.

Maureen, I get my music from iTunes. Not too sure about any of the other sites, this is the only one I've ever used. I know you'll find alot if you just do a search for it! Hope the boss isn't out sneakin' a drinky poo! At least hopefully he stays gone long enough for you to catch up though!

SoccerGirl, welcome back. I'm fairly new here but it's great to hear of people's successes. I'm sorry you had a rough time awhile back, the most important thing tho' is you started again. Your progress so far is wonderful, I know you will reach goal this time! Look forward to hearing more from you soon!


Ack, I hurt my leg again! I'd hurt it last week working out, it got better, and this a.m. I worked out and it's hurting again. I hope it goes away soon, I don't wanna be sidelined from exercise now that I'm actually enjoying it!
Weather here is gorgeous(80's & sunny), but unfortunately with over 100 days of no rain, fires are starting earlier than expected and everything is soooo dry. I hope this isn't a look into the future of what is to come this summer. Someone needs to do a rain dance or something!

Anywho, that's me for today, so far. Keeping up with my water and food and looking forward to another great weigh-in on Sun. Have a stellar day guys, and keep up the great work!

Default might help

I'm not sure if this will be useful to anyone else but my foot has been hurting pretty bad ever since I was pregnant with my last (3rd) son. I think my weight may have something to do with it plus my back has been bothering me since I was pregnant with my 2nd son. A few nights ago I decided to try yoga, thinking this should be low impact fairly easy to do. Boy was I wrong. It actually was a real workout but when I was done my foot and back were actually feeling better than they've felt in a long time. The next day my foot was sore again but not like it had been. I didn't get a chance to do yoga again last night but I think it may actually help me if I can do it at least a few nights a week.

Keep up the good work everyone!

Default Hi! Welcome!

Hi ladies,

Soccer - welcome. You're near me! Small world. I have to say that I agree with you about the weight coming off slower now. I've been trying to lose weight for awhile and it finally started to kick into high gear in January. I thought the first couple of weeks the weight loss would be big - like 3 pounds or so, you know, water weight loss, but nope, the most I lost was 2 pounds last week. I think it's harder when you get older. Sucks!!

I hope you do well on your diet journey. This is a wonderful support board and I have found it to help me alot as I try to lose weight.

Take care.

Lisa

Welcome SoccerGirl I've only been here for about two weeks so I'm new to this thread also. They're a great bunch of people.

Boss just called and left me a voice mail from the casino. He's drunk and down $900! I'm here left to cover (lie) for him to his boss that he had a family emergency. His boss already called me twice looking for info, I pray he doesn't call me again, I'm not a good liar!

Serena I took a yoga class once and it helped my back/hip area too, almost immediately. The problem was it was a 2 hour meditation yoga and it was pretty expensive (at a spa). Also, I was the heaviest person there so I felt funny even though the lights were down and everyone was on their back most of the time. The stretching really felt good. The pilates helps me also and that I can do at home (when I do it)

Oh boy, boss' boss just called and I'm afraid I stammered a little too much. I feel really bad for my boss, he just really flipped today from stress.

The reason I started to post was to tell you girls that if you have a Shop Rite near you they have Lean Cuisines on sale this week for 1/2 price.

Will you southern & western girls send some warm weather up north

It's only been in the 30's and 40's here which is warm for this time of year but they're talking snow maybe this weekend.

Default Married to a Hot Chick is Hard

Here I go again with the dancing carrot. I just love this thing!

That and I got to work this morning and realized I had a baby food stain on my shirt....NICE!! Well this message is about my favorite subject which is of course B. As some of you might know I'm am the groom of the wondermous B. Being married to a hot chick like her is hard. You know how you're walking in a mall and you see a guy that looks like Jerod from Subway's before picture walking with a total knockout? That's the way I feel when walking with B. Of course we are usually on the way to the movies, or someplace dark where I won't embarass her. Occasionally she takes me out in public, but usually it's to the state fair, or a flea market, someplace she knows ugly people feel at home. I'm really struggling with this whole diet thing and she is beating my badly. I'm so tired of salad and things with less than 3 grams of fat I could shout. I was looking at a pamplet about stomach surgery last night, and considering my options. There's still that whole 4-7% mortality rate that scares me. Plus that fact that it feels like I'm cheating. I'm considering diet pills such as phentermine/adapex or something that willl help me along. If anyone has suggestions I'm all ears. For the single fellers out there, just keep plantin your tator patch and one day you might grow a rose.

Post I just have to tell you ! SORRY!



Good afternoon ladies! I just have to tell you, all of you! Please forgive me!! We have a special meal here on campus tomorrow. Guess what it is?! Delectable desserts!!!! Guess who is making the majority of them?! My department!!!! Turtle cheesecake, cream horns, bourbon choc.pecan pie, fruit tarts, apple struedel, black forest cake and that is just to name a few! This is a killer when you are trying to diet! I planned on working out when I got home and I ended up working over for a few hours to try to get some of this done! Now I just want to go to sleep! I will eat a salad in a bit and then go to bed. I really want to watch BL tonight! I may have to tape it!

Maureen, I am sorry there is no here either. It is very cold out, blowing snow! I am all bundled up! I may be in the south but I am still in the mountains! WW chocolate?! Are you talking about the ww Whitman's chocolate? The pecan clusters are awesome!

Soccer girl, You can do it!

Marine mom, could of been me! I am always tired when I am on here. I am half asleep now. It may have been Lisa! BUt now I know you will be coming east. Beautiful place!

Desert dreamer, I t does feel like a big circle of family , doesn't it?!!!!

Hope everyone else is doing well! Talk to all of you later!

Catherine

I just bet if we asked Elizabeth she would have some HOT & STEAMY things to say about you! I am pretty positve that she is as proud of you as you are of her! Please do not sell your self short! My husband is not in the best shape either just like me! But as he says we got that way together. I still love him either way as you say tall, short , fat or thin. (Sorry everybody for using the "F" word! ) And if I wanted to I could tell you some HOT & STEAMY stuff about him too.

Please just keep working at it! You CAN do it! Have faith! And please try to keep the thought of surgery on the back burner for awhile!

Catherine

Hi everyone!! Busy day today and haven't been able to check in yet.

OMG, Catherine! I'd have a hard time with your tomorrow I believe! I might dream about sugar tonight just with your descriptions!! Good luck. Nothing tastes as good as lean and fit will feel! Honestly, I'd probably have to tell myself before hand that I was only going to taste 2 things. I don't know if I'd be able to not eat any of it? More power to you if you can though.

Maureen - how icky that you have to cover for your boss. What happens if you don't? Not the nicest working conditions.

Serena - I tried yoga once and felt so silly that I never went back. I know it's good for us. Some day I need to incorporate it into my routine. I've heard great things.

Lisa - you mentioned that you work nights. What do you do?

Danielle - sorry you hurt your leg. Take it easy for a few workouts and see how it feels. Maybe just do strength training for a couple days?

J - back at you!! It's sometimes hard to tell the tone of your posts - when it's serious and when it's sarcasm! But taking it seriously, can you change your "plan"? You don't have to eat salads 24/7! If you aren't eating enough fat you will never feel satisfied. We all have to find that plan that clicks with us, or we'll fall off. BTDT! BTW- How much do you have to lose? I am so "anti-diet" - I am eating the same foods that I will eat when I'm at maintenance. ( I don't want that to sound wrong - I'm eating healthy - I'm not eating fried foods - or lots of processed foods.)I cannot restrict myself so much that I don't even enjoy the food I eat. It's about moderation, exercising, doing the right thing. Learn as we go... P.S. I tried Phentermine a few months ago. Worked for about 2 weeks, lost a few pounds, and then nothing. Plus messed up my sleep.

My DH has about 15 pounds he could lose. He was 190 when we met, 240 when we got married, down from a high of 310 (way before we met). Then he was diagnosed with Diabetes 6 years ago. (No joke, we were visiting in Alabama - where he's from - pigging out on yummy southern food when he got sooo sick. Obviously the symptoms had been there for a few months, but he got very physically sick in AL!) Since then he's maintained pretty well. He controls the diabetes with diet and exercise. I cannot wait to weigh less than him!!

Welcome SoccerGirl!! It's a great group we've got here! I'm with you on the "slower" weight loss this time around. I'm OK with it though. I'm being reasonable this time. The only other time I've been serious about losing weight I was soooooo restrictive - eating 800-1000 calories/day and burning off more than that by exercise. So of course I lost fast, only to gain almost all of it back over the past 7 years...

I did the high intensity and weight training sections on the BL dvd this morning and then took the girls for a hour long walk. LOTS of exercise! That's my February mantra. Anyways, where we live, you cannot go anywhere without going up some steep hills. And back down and back up... I have a double stroller that weighs 25 pounds + my 27 pound 2 year old + my 17 pound 10 month old=70 pounds! It's such an upper body workout to hold onto that thing! And I got into my size 18 pants comfortable yesterday!!!! Got the 16's pulled up, but no way on earth they were going to zip up!

Have a good evening. Gota go watch Oprah this afternoon. Matthew McConaughey is on!

Hey ladies! I'll be out of town for the next few days, and since I'm going to be eating out 2 times a day I fully expect to maintain or gain this week. I'll try to snag nutritonal info so I can plan my meal quickly! I'll be playing my clarinet for roughly 14 hours over 3 days - Fitday says that burns about 960 calories, but I don't know about that

I need to start packing now. Welcome to all the newbies to this group! Everyone's doing fantastic - keep it up!

MOrning gang!

It seems like everyone is doing very well - keep it up!!

Katie bug - well you are out of town just remember to look for some healthy options or something a little different than typically eating out food. I found some of the coolest healthy meal ideas that way.

Nori- You are doing awesome with the exercise - it helps to know we all are doing this together and have to find time when it is a hard moring towake up early for me personally.

Soccergirl - welcome neighbor- I am in MD in Odenton (between Annapolis and Baltimore)

dgpebbles - wtg on the exercose - you are almost a quarter to your goal !!


Lisa - How is the Taebo going ?? Keep going!!

This morning I got up and got moving for about 25 minutes - did walk away the lbs a 15 minute session and some time on our elliptical. I have happy hour witht he girls tonight (I will make sure I limit myself to one drink - the beauty of drinking vodka tonics no asks why you stopped when you move to plain club soda).

Yesterday I went to a seminar and saw an associate I see every few months and see said she could tell I was losing!!


Have a great day everyone!!
