Cloud nine, I should think you were on cloud 99!! Wonderful news all around Linus!! Hey whaddya mean by belittling yourself re the four pounds?! You should be yelling from the rooftops (maybe not!). Any loss would be cause to celebrate. Do a lap of honor around your sitting room!

Well Done on the 4lbs losses Kirsty and SW I don't think its stupid at all Kirsty we all know how hard it is to shift the blubber so keep patting yourself on the back

Chris, gosh what a deal you have i wish i had that plan..we pay about $40 per call! i'm always saying to hubby we should try one of those deals that are always coming through the mail but he's an old stickler and seems to enjoy paying top whack i had to laugh when i first came over here because he was renting every phone in the house at a cost of about $10 each per month i did'nt realise this for a long time but when i found out i took all those old things back to the phone company and to add insult to injury one of the old beat up things that he was renting for $10.95 a month was in the window for $7.95 BRAND NEW! What a cheek!

Not exercised yet today the cable box is playing silly buggers and even tho' its showing the channel number change the channel on the tv is'nt changing i've had the whole cabinet apart disconnected everything and put new cables on don't know if thats fixed it or not because yesterday i thought i'd fixed it and then it started playing silly buggers again it can't be a line fault because all the other tv's work fine

yay and look what I found!!It must be ST. Patricks day!!! I like him, he is cute.
I am so sorry girls but I am in such a terrible mood tonight having just had a heated discussion with my friend whose husband died last November. I try SO SO SO hard not to say anything wrong on the phone but it is like I have been treading on eggshells for these months. I know we ended amicably at the end but I burst into tears and I don't think she noticed 'cos she had caught her eye on a scene in Corrie on her t.v. just at that moment. Probably just as well. I wanted to scream at her "IT IS NOT MY FAULT YOUR DS DIED.. ..I CANNOT HELP BUT EVERYTHING I SAY IS WRONG!!!!!!!!!"
There. It is out now. I'll calm down.
Phew. I don't suppose it helps that I am still feeling very nauseous anyway and I have felt I am doing all the finger work (on the phone) and the pedal work (gone to see her).Anyway I must now sound like a right Forgive me.
Linus...well done to son. He sounds like quite an achiever really. What does he want to do carreer wise when he leaves school?
Glad you have your vowels back!!!!

Hi everyone,
Teel don't beat yourself up over your friend. She probably doesn't even realise how you feel and if she's a true friend and you explain everything, I'm sure it'll be ok. SHe has to realise that even though she lost her hubby, her life still goes on and she needs to be thankful for having a great friend such as yourself
Cathy, tha'ts robbery you have to pay for your phone calls! Absolutely disgusting!
WELL DONE KIRSTY.......do a few more laps round the living room and another pound will be gone Some old girlies on this site a few years back kept saying to think you just lost a pound or two wasn't much, but to make it more real think about what a pound of butter or lard looks like and then realise that it's no longer attached to your bod. SO celebrate luv
Right, must do the dishes.......AGH!

Chris, I think I mentioned way back then that at our class we had a "model" of 2lb fat. It was heavy! To actually pass it around and feel it made you think about the 2lb loss/gain you may have had. Truly shocking!


Teel - don't worry. Emotions run high in a situation like that. Maybe you could write her a letter or something. You don't even have to send it, sometimes just writing a letter helps to get everything out. Maybe you both need a bit of space, especially if you are the one making the effort. Spend more time on yourself.

Peacock, I think I remember you mentioning the 'model' of fat. It does sound yucky. ANd it's scary to think we've been carrying this access round with us.
I don't buy actual butter in a patty, I buy a tub of 'can't believe it's not butter' of the lite variety or fat free if I can find it, but I do often look at the weight on it, and am amazed at how much it looks like all smushed in a tub.
Well the day has dawned here, all mucky and gray. Snow and rain are forcast through the day, YUK! I've donned my big comfy fleecy which everyone says I must get rid of as it's too big, but I like wearing it when it's chilly, especially at work as in the classroom I work in, I work with a young pregnant woman, and three menopausal women who are always saying how hot they feel and open the windows. So I'm always freezing to death as I'm the lucky person who works closest to the window that they insist on opening!
Well, must get on and finish getting ready........have a good day everyone. Talk later

Peacock the hormones WERE really RAGING today. We had heavy snow all morning, it was freezing out, and they all wanted the bloody window open! Lucky I had my nice warm fleecy on
Drinking loads of water.here's what I was told at WW. It flushes your food through you better, maybe it breaks it down so it doesn't turn into fat? Not too sure about that though, I could just be making that up
And the colder water you drink, burns more calories........don't know why though.
I am being a big PIG today. Must be the weather, I know I've gained, I know Gloria will tell me so tomorrow morning.but I'll have to face it. I think I'm figuring that after the pretty naughty weekend, I would just carry on, although I've been good for most of the days after, but once Gloria talks to me tomorrow I can garuantee I'll be on my best behaviour
Am even going to now prepare some healthy foods for my lunch tomorrow this evening....see I'm planniong to be good then, don't hold out much hope for this evening though HELP ME.........GET ME BACK ON TRACK WITH SOME TELLINGS OFF PLEASE!!!

Ok just for Chris......(and me too)

there! How's that?
I have discovered that my so called bug over the weekend was not in fact one at all, but I am suffering opiate withdrawal symptoms....vomiting, chills, aches, siezed up joints all whilst being left in the most unbearable pain all over. I should have realised what was happening earlier, not that I could have done anything about them. At least I get to see my g.p. tomorrow.
Meanwhile so I don't bore everyone stupid with tales of continuing woe from my place, A HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY to everyone who is celebrating!!

On the opium huh? Or, I guess off it rather. For some reason I have visions of Thoroughly Modern Millie (the film) when Julie Andrews goes down that alley way where that place translate as a Tart shop (not the things you eat either). NOt meaning to be heartless but I just had this funny image of you scurrying down a dark sleazy alley going about your "business"......

Obviously you are not doing this (at the moment any road) and I am sorry you are poorly. Sounds a right bugger.

Did you see Celebrity Fat CLub? They are all doing well. Amy looked really good.
