Hey dips, How are ya? I think about you often. You would go crazy at my house.... 3 dogs,4 cats,1 fish and 3 kids. It is like my own little zoo.

I wished I was a big fruit eater. Pretty much the only thing I like is strawberries,watermelon and bananas. I guess I should buy some to eat though instead of junk.

I made it through yesterday OP. Yeah for small successes!!! I am going to try to get to 135 by the end of August so maybe that will motivate me to stay on track for more than a few days.

Has anyone heard how Gennel is doing? I PM'd her but havent heard anything. I hope her move went smoothly.

WE MISS YOU GENNEL!!!!!

Angie, Angie, Angie

It's like wild safari over at your place I guess I would go crazy! But I was looking at your pics [again] thinking that you are so remarkable. It is so hard to stay focused on your goal but you're almost there, girl.

You should always be proud that you made it this far and always remember, it's the last few that always take the longest but yu'll make it, I have no doubt in my mind.

Kina- What up chica! Haven't heard from you in a minute. Good to see you pop up in the thread.

I pm'd Gennel also but I guess she's really into the new house. I hope all is well with her. Hey Gen!!

I just finished this aerobics class that kicked my butt! It was a lot of fun though but afterward I was literally stagering back to the car. The instructor was new so I guess she wanted to make a big first impression but I'll be feeling her impression all day tomorrow

Well Hope all is well. By the way has anyone heard from Jen??

Dips Baby...you know it's just going over here. I have been busy with kids, work, and all the whiles trying to get a handle on this weight! I think I've got a better grip on it this time. With all the success that is going on around here it's hard not to make it possible.

I will be working full time in the evening pretty soon. So I will become scarce for a while. I will also be back at school in September. So right now I going up the roller coaster at a pretty slow speed anticipating that drop at full speed. Aaaaarrrrgh! Don't you just love life! I woulnd't have it any other way.

Well ladies I wanted to stop by and tell you I had willpower the strength of WONDER WOMAN! I went out to my little one's school to help out the teacher as I have every day since school started. Well she figured she would pay me for my work. Pay me?...you ask. Pay me in the form of DOUGHNUTS!!!! OMG!!! I gratefully declined and proceeded to go into the classroom to do my volunteer work...all the while those doughnuts sit in the same room as me. Often my thoughts wandered off to the blissful taste of Krispy Kreme doughnuts but I'd shake it off quickly. My tummy would grumble even though I knew I was not hungry. But finally 3pm bell rang and I thought of grabbing a doughnut afterall but then I said "No, the scale was very nice to you this morning showing you at 197.5 do you want some more of that or do you want that darn doughnut that will just stick to your flying squirrel underams (description taken from Angie's prior posts thanks for painting a vivid picture Ang...hahaha), or better yet your rubbing thighs, or maybe even your bubba butt. Which would you rather have, Kina! Decide and pay the ultimate price!" I swear those voices are vicious! I ran out of there quickly...without the doughnut! Applause and courtsey...thank you very much. LOL

Well I better get going. I hope you all's Monday was a great one. Talk to you later.

Hugs & Smiles, Kina

Default I'm Here!!!!!!

I finally got internet! ugh ,it's dial up and super duper slow!
Well we finally did the closing on the house and I'm here! We moved in this past Thursday. I've been going to bed super late each night. We were sleeping at my brother's house, then my mom's apartment,then we went to Orlando to visit friends. This went on for 3 weeks. Living out of bags and boxes. It was horrible not having a place but it's over. I was so desperate to see everything set up and decorated that the first night we went to bed at 4 AM ! I must take pictures and post them asap.
I have to learn myway around this place to start my business up here.

I just wanted to thank everyone one of you who had me in your prayers. I missed the post boards so much. I felt like an addict going through withdrawls! lol I really want to have the challenges going or at least a thread where all the "oldies" can post . But I wont be able to maintain it personally for now. This week we are having family over from NJ. And for a while we will be expecting family over every weekend lol .

Ladies,it seems as if you have done very well . Di , You did it !
Please dont forget to send me pics or post them!

well here it is ! 1 AM and I'm awake! I gotta get to bed.
love ya guys!

Gen

Its so nice to hear from everyone again!
Angie, I can't get over your before & after pics. It's hard to tell it's the same You!
Hurray Kina for passing up the donuts!
Hey Dips, are you still in Italy?
I've been posting on the 21 day challenge. I'm doing quite well, down 2 pounds so far.
Take care everyone!!

Good Job Apple Blossom. yeah, I did look a little different back then.

Dips,How are your muscles doing today? That must have been some workout. I hope you get your usual instructor back soon.

Gen, We all missed you so much!! Di is going to start a thread soon so maybe we can all just jump over there and keep in touch. It would be nice to be able to keep all of us together. You guys have all been such an inspiration to me and kept me going.

My seasonal job called me back to work yesterday. I am just getting home. This won't be my normal shift...I will start that next week. Anyway...I am so tired my fingers hurt. Ouch!

Gennel...happy to see your post.
Dips...are you army or what...I have a cousin who is in the Army and another cousing who is in the Marines. One came back from Baghdad for a short visit and the other one was going to someplace out there also.
Appleblossom...I was totally surprised to see your post...thanks for your support.
HI Angie!
Di...how's it going...you may not hear from me as often now that I have my seasonal job keeping me busy. But I will certainly make every effort to read the posts; I may not have the energy to post but I will read.

Well talk to you all later...I have to go pick up the kids.

Hugs & Smiles, KINA

Ciao Ladies,

Hi AppleBlossom!! How the heck are ya?! Yes I'm still in beautiful Italy but I'll be going home soon.

Angie- I feel a little better but some places are still a little stiff. Meanwhile since I got a little aerobics posse going on we're still forcing each other to the classes with the evil instructor lady. Turns out our normal guy won't be back for a while.

Gennel- Godd to hear from you. You are one busy chica! But it's all for a good reason so good luck to you

Kina- You're pretty busy yourself. I'm in the army, Marines are hardcore! I'm not THAT tough lol. But I have a lot of admiration for your family in service. They were in Bahgdad looking out for me.

Gotta get to work, Ciao!!

Hey everyone!
Gen, I hope we'll be hearing more from you know that you're on-line again. I had dial-up for over a year and it stinks!! Take Rusty's advice and bring some barbells to your computer station and pump a few while you wait for stuff to load.......It's amazing how much time can be lost just WAITING......
Hey Kina, I love hearing from you, you are REAL and I'm rooting for you!!!! I've checked out your web-site a few times too. Don't you think there should be a frog "smilie"?
Dips, I forgot where in Italy you are. My brother-in-law just got back from Lake Como. I saw his pics, it's beautiful!!!! And I was born in Rome. I hope to go back some day.
If I have a consistent reading tomorrow, I will report a 2 pound loss!!!

AppleBlossom- Born in Rome, huh, that's pretty cool. I'm way north of that in Vicenza. I love it here, so serine and the people {who aren't protesting in front of our base} are really sweet. 'll be sad to leave but I have a lot of people waiting for me back home so I'm ready.

The aerobics instructor from **** will be at the gym today and I'm forcing myself to go. I figure the pain is just the fat leaving my body.So as the pain subsides, so should the fat, right? We'll see

Gen!

Your house is absolutely gorgeous!! Makes me rethink my plan to move the fiance' out of florida for New York. No wonder he's so attached!

I hope it all goes smoothly for you. Congratulations on owning your own piece of Fla.

Hope everyone had a smashing weekend. I tried yoga and Pilates over the weekend and the weird thing is you don't feel like you're working that hard but then the next day you feel like you spent hours in the gym. It's prety cool, I think I'll make it a regular thing.
