Way to go Tina! You'll be back under 300 in no time. Happy Birthday Andria! Hope it was a good one. Things have been going good here. I've been drinking 80+oz of water daily and getting in my exercise. Today I walked my son to school and then walked home. I also did my WATP 1 mile and did 20 min on the treadmill. I feel so good when I'm doing good things for my body. It makes me feel thinner. I'll probably be doing a lot of the treadmill this week since the weather report isn't looking so hot for us here. Isabel seems to be on her way here by Thursday or Friday. I'm hoping things will shift and she'll head back out to sea. Oh well we'll have to wait and see what happens. Hope everyone has a great night.

I just wanted to check in. My baby turns 3 on Thursday. I cannot believe it!! he is growing up so fast. My oldest will be 9 in November and the girls are already flocking after him. Oh, I am not ready for this

I am loving my job!!! I have been a daycare teacher now for about a month. I am part time but one day I hope to become full time. I am wanting to wait until both of mine are in school first. I only work 4 hours a day now and that is plenty.

Congrats to you all that are moving and losing!! I hope to join you one day soon. Unfortunately I dont know if I am ready to take a ride on the wagon just now. I will join you soon but I want to wait until I know that I wont fall right back off.

I hope that everyone has a good night and/or day!! I am getting ready to head to bed.

Hi guys... what great posts and GREAT success stories.
Congratulations to all of you LOSERS.
It is after midnight and I am tired. Just peeking in before I crash for the night. I have soooo much to do tomorrow.

Tonight I took DH out for his birthday. He had a nice steak and I ate grilled chicken. Substituted veggies for potatoes.
Then I took him to the casino for a couple of hours.
I won $65 by the time we agreed to leave. DH lost $40
We decided to stay 30 more minutes... I LOST $20 of my winnings... and DH WON $140. We both came home a winner.

I swam again today. Water temp still in the upper 70's BRRRRrrrr
Several have asked how long it stays warm in OKla.
Your guess is as good as mine. LOL
There is a saying for OKla... if you don't like the weather... just wait an hour. I am HOPING for a longggg warm season here.
But we are already having evenings in the upper 40's and 50's. That is why I have to wait until 3pm to get my swimming in.

We will have a week of cold in Oct... and then a few days of 90's.
Very unpredictable. But since I got a pool... winter will probably come early this year.

Okay.. no replys until after my vacation.
I am tired and headed for bed.
Love ya all !!!!!!

Morning my favorite chicks,

Not much to report since last night you know, but I wanted to pop in anyway and start my day off right. I did really good and stayed op yesterday and plan on it for today. I still need to go add up my points if I can find that darn little book again. I know it's here somewhere, it used to be my bible now the darn thing is missing.

I am assuming the points for WW are the same as they were before the new flex points thing, and that the 35 flex ones are in there for your use besides your regular points. Thats how I took it when I read up on it yesterday.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us Easterners and hoping that this darn hurricane dies down more before she hits. The latest report puts land fall in NC or as far north as NJ coast, so what do we do? My hubby is a lobsterman and traps are in the water and I hate this time of year (hurricane season) the high seas and winds sometimes you loose your gear to it, and I hate the wind and the boat being in the water. I have seen the damage that mother nature can do. She can pick up a boat just like a tootler does to play with and send it sailing. Anyway, my fingers are crossed for us all.

Those in PA, I saw some flooding on the weather, I hope not in your area.

Love ya all,

Good morning!

I should be getting ready for work but its cool and lovely this morning. Too bad I can't call in sick. Maybe I'll be able to play hooky in October.

I got in a fantastic dog walk last night. I love fall evenings. We walked at a faster pace and it felt great.

DH has a trip tonight to take the kids to a volleyball game. Woohoo! Just me and the dog for an evening. I've got lots of things I want to accomplish tonight but top on the list are a bike ride, dog walk, and some yard work.

Anyone see Dr. Phil yesterday? I have sort of watched it but would like to go back and watch it again. One thing though. I watched the first 10 minutes or so and then told DH that I wanted him to watch it too. It really hit me watching the clips of all the people who sent in tapes. I don't want to go back to looking like that and feeling like that. The main thing is that you could see how miserable they are both physically and mentally. The pain in their voices. I've been there and been in denial about it and I don't want to feel that pain again. Although I thought he was a little hokey about hyping his book so much with his comments "I've broken the code" as if he can "cure" everyone's weight problems. In reality, its nothing more than us getting ahold of our emotions and dealing with the issues that lead us to overeat - whether its laziness, whether its self-medication to mask pain, whether its boredom or whatever. We, WE, are the ones who have to cure ourselves.

I'll be interested to see who he's chosen for the challenge.

Okay, I must get my butt moving for work. Have a great day!

And again, in case you missed it on the last thread.

J-Ann, Tina and Natalie

Goooood Mornin!

WI last night really got me psyched. We did the postcard thing at WW last night, but our leader is using the week before Christmas as our goal. It really does make you think about attainable goals in the short termÖ. Kind of keeps weight loss in perspective.

TINA: WAHOO!!!!!! Great Loss.

SANDY: I can understand why you would worry about the weather considering your DH is out on the sea in all kinds of it. I did hear this A.M. that the hurricane may be lessening and possibly fall apart before it gets too far north. Something about high level wind shear pulling it apart. I hope so!

MICHELLE: Wears me out just thinking about spending time with all of those kids. (j-ann wipes her brow) Iím sure they all had a great time and Iím sure you slept well that night.

LORI: I LOVE breakfast. Iíd make it the biggest meal of the day if I had my way! Itís the one meal I never, ever skip. Getís me going for the day.

MARY: You are NOT bad. What can we do to help????

JOANNE: Let us know how the new TOPS group goes.

Gotta get to work.

Wink Good Morning Losers!

It is a beautiful morning. They say it's the calm before the storm. We'll have one more day of peaceful weather and then Isabel is supposed to hit, or graze us. It's really too soon to tell though, the news just keeps speculating. They really don't have a clue as to where it's going to hit next.
In other news my toe is healing fine. I was able to get in a hearty workout last night without any pain. I must have just bruised it real good because I'm not having trouble walking anymore.
I didn't see Dr Phil but I am going to have to agree on the helping yourself concept. I think when he first became popular it was refreshing to have someone "tell it like it is". Now he seems to be going down hill and his head is getting bigger. Don't get me wrong, he says a lot of things that make perfect sense. But the only person that is going to help those people is themselves. Once they make the decision to help themselves then they can turn for support. It doesn't happen just because Dr Phil says so. I get frustrated seeing other people suffer for something that is so simple yet so difficult. I think the reason is because I see myself within them and it scares me. I know I had the potential to get very heavy, I am so thankful that I was able to find a way out.

That's going to be my soul searching for the day. Right now I have to search for a solution to all this work on my desk. That is before I get fired.

Red face been sick...

Hello ladies!

I've been scarce all weekend I had a pretty horrid weekend - I caught some virus and it was like AGONY just having to get up and putter around the house, I didn't go to work all weekend I made it through some christmas diplays yesterday for Sears - I'm gonna go back tomorrow and finish the thing. Well the good thing about being sick is that you a lot of weight... I got on the scale the other day and I was a few pounds down! Finally I'm not too fat for my scale!! The BAD thing about being sick is that you don't really concentrate on being healthy.

My goals today is to do some weights, probably before I run uptown to do my errands. I finally don't feel too weak to do some walking!

Pam, Thin, Barb, Tina, Kat,2Cute, Mary, and Sandy..and anyone I missed...how's it going?

Thin, how's curves coming? We have a gym just down the road here, I was thinking about joining...
