Well I must say my ex-wife and sister made some outstanding fried chicken today for the family gathering....they had me sample the first piece and it was like eating Lay's Potato Chips (bet'cha can't eat just one) only way better.

We had birthday cake for my sister and her/our family best friend from 2nd grade...also know as Aunt Cathy...it was/is going to be their 50th birthday and my dil's 28th birthday...I ate ZERO cake and ice cream...

I won't admit to pieces of fried chicken but I will say it was over 4 and under 8....

Note to self ~ focus on calories this coming week....wink

My calorie tally for today is 1180. I've had plenty of water and moved around a bit. My gowear fit says I spent over 1800 cals today. Not bad for being lazy for a good part of the day.

Hi Everyone! Thanks for posting, it's great to read. I think this thread helped me keep on track this weekend.
We went to the gym on Sat and Sun and the gym scale (which I ignored last week cause it had me 3 pounds higher than my home scale!) said I lost 3 pounds since last week! Same tonight, so I feel really happy.

We went out to eat last night and I did very well - salmon and double portion of veggies, instead of potato.

I started keeping track of what I eat at fitday, too. First time ever. I really thought it'd just be too much/too hard to keep track. But, then I remembered when I got out of debt several years ago. It was very hard, but the key was keeping track. Yup. Connect the dots. Be accountable.

Thank you for being here.

So full of baloney now that I don't want or need that extra burrito or entire meal for lunch![/QUOTE]

It's great!!! So encouraging! And funny, too.
Thanks for the encouragement the other day, too. I laughed so hard when you reminded us that the tears were weight, too!

I hope tomorrow is much, much easier than you imagine! Again, you're my example -- one of my goals is to get a check up this year. It's been 6 years. You rock!

[QUOTE=blondebritbrat17;2724608]

I just found out I will not be going to work for the upcoming week. My school district has closed as a precaution and to help prevent the flu and H1N1 (swine) flu from spreading. Fortunately we do not have to make up the days nor will I lose pay thank goodness. So I will have more rest I guess which right now I could use some due to me being in the middle of another "episode" of whatever this is.

I hope the time helps you rest and take care of yourself, stretch, feel proud of your Tremendous Will Power!!! I'll look forward to reading your feats of strength!!!

Bodies went flying, 4 people died immediately, a 5th later in the evening and there are a number of people very seriously injured. He did not get close to the bus. He ran his car into a cement pole and got severely injured. He is still in critical condition. All this was live on tv and it was awful.

As a country we are perplexed and hurt.
There was always kind of a sweetness and innocence about Queens Day.
I hope we haven't lost that because of some nut case.

I pray for the victims and their family, but also for the guy who did this.
I cannot imagine that he is anything other than mentally ill.
I'm so sorry about Queens Day. Deeply touched by your magnanimous prayer for everyone involved.

Good Morning TEAM ~

Well I tallied up the score this morning on the evil scale....

Friday ~ Italian out ~ Shrimp and pasta dish

Saturday ~ The pizza we ordered to go on Fri. ~ 1/2 cheese 1/2 Canadian bacon

Lunch ~ split that Baja Fresh meal with Angie

Sunday ~ Lunch - Fried chicken ~ and leftover pizza for dinner

Breakfast ~ Sat - nachos .....stupid-stupid-stupid....Sun.- a breakfast bar

Weighed in at 181 on Friday and 183 this morning

I wonder why?

Not really.....I know why! It's the baloney!!

I did get out for 3 miles on Friday and Saturday....so it could have been worse.

Fight on TEAM ~ FIGHT ON!

It is OK to be lazy "some" of the time kiddo! We all need to rest...it renews our strength. There is a time for everything

Great choice!


Some people are so quick to judge, even if they have no real knowledge or facts. I know I will be more careful in the future before I jump to conclusions. Our thoughts are with her and our hearts are breaking along with hers.
Great advice for all of us Mindy.

Official as of this morning: 194. So your baloney pill continues to work (as long as I cut thru the boloney, of course!). LOL!

I love this thread :-) Thanks for starting it. Hugs all. Jeannette you have drs appt this week? Or have you already made it through that? Thinking of you!

Happy Monday, team! I have lots of work to do this week, but once it is over things will slow down a little bit - thank goodness! My boyfriend is getting in to town later this week and we're heading east sometime after the 14. Hopefully that will be a relaxing trip. And I'll see what I can do as far as eating...dinners w/ him tend to involve beer or wine, which really ups the calorie count! And I already know he's bringing me a special microbrew that he's picking up when he drives through Colorado...

Happy Monday everyone! I woke up this morning with the cold I was trying to ward off go figure on my "vacation". I know which kid gave it to me too lol. Every time this past year I have been off I've been sick which has its pros and cons. All of my co-workers are going on impromptu vacations so I am a bit jealous but on the positive side hopefully everyone comes back to work well rested. I went and got my bloodwork done so hopefully I'll know what's going on by Thursday or Friday and what needs to be done. They did take a lot of blood to where I had to go home and eat something afterwards.

Jeannette-Sounds like you got a work out just by cleaning alone! WTG

Here's wishing everyone a great week!

My doc's appointment was okay! I know the doc (I used to nanny for his twins when they were newborns, and my mom works fro him) so he knew how upset I was going in. Even now I'm crying over it. Agh. Anyway, it was fine! It was over really quick and the nurse (who I know as well...actually I know everyone there lol) kept me distracted. Yay!

I also told him I can run for 9 minutes in a row and he was all impressed. And this am I was 196.8 but at the docs I was 200.6 but I'm blaming that in my wet hair (it's near my bottom now) or maybe some magic muscles that cropped up.

I also have been keeping my water intake up and food intake down. I'm starving right now and I want something good like pizza but will settle for this popcorn and water I guess.

AND! A PERMANENT job position is opening up at work. This would give me benefits. I am praying I get it. I really need this.

Anyhow, I'll be running tonight. I miss it.

EZ: Totally true. I really needed to be lazy. I've been so sleepy!

Blonde: I think I really did. I'm sore today, ha!

Jeanette, I'm so glad everything went well at the Dr.! And also I wish you the best on getting the position at your work.

britbrat, I hope you are feeling better soon. I was outside this morning working and now I'm all sneezy, but I'm pretty confident it's just my allergies. Being sick on vacation stinks, but at least you can rest up without feeling guilty about it.

Back to work for the afternoon... cheers team!

So, anyone hit a Mental plateau? I had convinced myself, that I had doing really good, I'm looking pretty good, way better than 25lbs ago. Wearing my PJ's to take the girls to school for an excuse not to go to the gym ect. Well a friend talked me into going to the military base's wellness center for a fat analyze in their BodPod. I really hope this is the reality check I need. The Results are...

Weight:173.4(I knew that already)
Fat Weight:66.1
Lean weight :107.2

Percent Fat:38.1%
Percent Lean:61.9
Est RMR:1376 calories

Est RMR x activity level= Sedentary-1706
Low Active-2091
Active-2394
Very Active-2848
