Things are still going well here, diet-wise, that is. Soon I will be heading out to the doc's office once again. I haven't felt well all week, kinda, and Wednesday I noticed some red spots on my stomach. Didn't think much of them until Thursday I noticed a whole lot more of them on my backside. Last night I found a couple in my underarms, which feel really sore when I touch them. Found a few more this morning so called the office. I don't know if I have a fever, don't feel like it much. I've just been feeling so tired this week and I kinda get out of breath just walking from one room to another. So I shall see what the doc has to say. Rather, I'm seeing her assistant instead. Wish me luck!

I ate a few more points than I should have yesterday but at least I kept a count, heh. I only had 18 the day before, 4 under my max, so I don't feel too bad about yesterday. I think there are just some days you feel like eating a little more than others. As long as I didn't eat a bunch of junk. So far no exercise at all this week since I haven't been feeling too well. Don't feel too bad about that either, although I'm champing at the bit to get back to my normal exercise. I know it really helps me to lose more. This darn ankle seems like it will never get back to normal, fooey!

Okay, I have to go to a couple of stores and the library on my way to the doc's. It's 12:30 here and my appointment is at 1:45 so I'd best get going. If I have any extra time before my appointment I can always get a good start on the book. I'm stopping to get some more peaches too, we've been getting the most delicious peaches here lately, mmmmmmm! Hope you all have a good one!

I'm back! I just took a few days off. Things are going great! Well, not completely. I've been feeling like I have the flu or something the last couple of days. Just a general aching all over and a terrible headache. And soooo tired! I've been sleeping too much. And no exercise at all. Also I skipped the WW meeting on Tuesday. My scale said 160 but since I'm putting what I weigh at WW here, I won't change it until I weigh in again. But it looks like I'm on the right road.

Sunday at Red Lobster I did very well. But I did eat 2 of the biscuits and then I wished I hadn't had the second one. It was cold by then and didn't taste as good as the first one did. But I only ate a salad with regular thousand island dressing since they didn't have any fat free dressing (what I did was have it on the side and dipped my fork into the dressing then into the salad so I only used just a very small amount)and one of the DH's jumbo fried shrimp. So I considered that excellent compared to the way I would have eaten in the past. We spent a nice night at the resort but didn't go out to breakfast the next morning. We went home instead and that was okay with the DH. I had my usual oatmeal and toast breakfast. Also I changed my mind about going to the casino, even though I really, really wanted to. Mom decided not to go and I didn't want to drag the DH out there since he doesn't like to gamble and always lets us all know just how he feels about gambling. So I just didn't want to go through all the guilt I usually feel after losing a chunk of money. Maybe some other time. Oh, BTW, the waiter at Red Lobster said we could have a free sundae for our anniversary dessert but we both turned it down, yay, me!

Okay, don't have anything planned for today. I don't really feel like exercising or going anywhere. I'm just going to figure this week off. But I will do well on the food I eat. I hope you're all doing great. Have a great day!

shellybelly on 10/09/2003:
Wow...great job! Mmmm...sundae. Don't know if I could've turned it down. keep it up! :-)

legcramp on 10/09/2003:
You're doing so great, congratulations!!! Way to turn down that sundae! And you ate very well while at Red Lobster, i'm sure if it was me, that meal you had would've been a lot different (more, and deep-fried, to be exact!). Keep up the awesome work for the rest of this week and next, and you'll definitely see a great loss!! Have a great day today!

Not much to say today except yesterday was an excellent day as far as food and exercise goes. I did the 30 minute walk as I reported yesterday and, later, did about half an hour of ab and arm exercises with 8 pound weights. I only had 18.5 points so I was kinda low for the day. I found some 9 grain bread that is only 1 point for 2 slices, whoohoo! And I ate lots of fruits and veggies. I did have 2 cans of diet soda though, I had a Fresca in the afternoon to keep from eating something, and a diet Coke with lunch. More than I usually drink. But I had plenty of water too. Now I just have to keep this up today. We will be going out for dinner, probably to Red Lobster, and I just have to have one of those garlic-cheese biscuits, ya know. So I'll probably just have a salad and pick a little on whatever the DH has. Then we will be going out to breakfast tomorrow too so I will probably be having a few more points for breakfast than I usually do at home. But I'll be good. I just keep thinking of how much I want to get rid of all this fat. All I need to do is look in the mirror and that reminds me. I can't wait to get down to 150 again and I will never gain it back again, EVER!! It's too hard to lose it the second time around!

Okay, I won't be here tomorrow since we will be at the resort and then gambling later in the afternoon. So I'll just skip an entry. I hope you're all doing and feeling as great as I am this weekend. See ya's Tuesday!

How did the Red Lobster meal go? Did you stick to one biscuit? I love those and absolutely cannot have them on the table. I don't feel deprived if I never see them. Hope the rest of your weekend and Monday was good!

pollyanna on 10/06/2003:
Did you win anything at the tables for us? LOL I hope you were able to resist the second biscuit....I can't so I don't go there often! Yummy! The walking and ab workout sounds great! Good job :)

Just stopped in to say how I'm doing. How are you all doing this fine Saturday morning?! I just finished a 30 minute walk on the treadmill, only 1.4 miles but I added a nice hill in there for the Operation OFB challenge. I'm having a hard time keeping up with that though. We're supposed to do 3 hills a week and I'm barely able to do that since I only walked twice this week, I think. I can't remember if I walked on Monday or not. Oh, well, I'm doing what I can right now. My ankle hurts like h-e-double hockey sticks right now so I'm going to ice it as soon as I finish here. I still have to eat breakfast too, it's only 9:30am here. Also had almost 40 oz. of water already too. Glug, glug!

Yesterday was a good day---21.5 points out of 22 I'm allowed, but no exercise except the walking at WalMart. But at least I did well on the food part. I feel great!! Sneaked a peek at my scale this morning and it said 161.5 so that helps too, haha. Although I know the one at WW weighs higher, especially since I have to wear clothes and I don't take off my shoes, heh. So I will keep going and have a fine weekend. I'm pumped!!

Okay, talk at ya tomorrow, I guess. Won't be able to on Monday since I won't be here that morning. It's our 35th anniversary tomorrow and we're going to stay at a resort near here for the night, the penthouse with a giant jacuzzi(?), whoohoo!! And then on Monday, DH promised to take me to one of the casinos near here. OOh, I love to gamble but don't usually do that too often. Should be fun. We're taking my Mom too. So if I don't get here later on Monday I'll see ya's on Tuesday (weigh-day). Take care and have a good weekend!

Happy Friday!! Ye-Ha! I went to the gym yesterday and did even more than I did Tuesday! I managed to do 7 1/2 minutes twice on the recumbent bike! And lots of killer ab and arm exercises. I felt great! I went over a little on the points though--6 points to be exact! Darn! It was that darn spaghetti and garlic bread I made for dinner that did it. I wasn't going to eat any of it but it smelled so good and I figured it was only 4 points for one piece of garlic bread (sheesh) and 5 points for a cup of spaghetti with sauce but that just wasn't enough for me. I was SO hungry all day too. If I would have had something that was less points for dinner,as I'd planned, the rest that I ate afterward wouldn't have been so bad. So I said "no more garlic bread in this house" because I can usually pass up the spaghetti if there is no garlic bread. So I plan on doing better today. At least I still kept track of the points. Usually if I know I'm going over, I just stop writing it down.

So this morning I got up early and went out to WalMart for some things. That was quite a bit of walking. I don't know if I'm going to push it later and get a walk on the treadmill. My ankle is sore from yesterday and this morning's walking. We'll see. But I will walk for sure tomorrow and do ab and arm exercises here at home. I think if I do these exercises 3 times a week, twice at the gym and once at home, that should be enough, ya think?

Okay, I managed to get all the entries read here yesterday. It's amazing how much you can get done with that extra couple of hours in the morning if you don't go back to bed, heh. I left some comments when I could because I know how important they are to all of us. I sure love getting them myself. Thanks to all of you! So you all have a great day and a nice weekend. See ya later.

breakaway on 10/03/2003:
It was funny that you mentioned to me about not writing it down when you go over your points. The day I did bad I stopped recording it lol Why is it we do that? Maybe there's just to much to remember. I know that I won't do it again. I tried to fill in the best I could but I totally forgot what I had to eat all that day. I know I used all my flex points within two day's. Great exersise today! Your doing a good job! Hang in there.

Happy Friday back at you! Be careful and don't overdo it on your ankle, now. Congrats on doing more at the gym. Doesn't it feel great once you get into it?

Have a great weekend!

Crittermama on 10/03/2003:
I envy your workouts!! I just don't have the time or energy right now. I think when I get my major projects done I will. I feel guilty not doing it though. You are doing a great job. Keep going.

Whoohoo!! I managed to do 30 minutes on the treadmill yesterday! My ankle did hurt some but I iced it down right afterward. It's still a little sore this morning but I'm going to the gym again and do the recumbant bike and arm and ab exercises. Anyway, that's the only good thing about yesterday---the food part was terrible again! But that's over so today will be a much better day! I plan to write everything down and count all the points, okay, Breakaway? I'll be right with you today. Let's see just how long we can keep having really good WW days! BTW, I buy the Wow chips because I know if I eat too many of them, I will have a big bathroom problem, ya know? So that keeps me from eating more than one serving a day. I do eat the baked chips too sometimes but I don't like them as well so I don't eat too many.

I forgot to mention the other day that when I weighed in at WW on Tuesday I wasn't really too bummed about it. I know it takes awhile to get that metabolism going again and I have hormone problems too right now so I think that adds to it. And the meeting really gave me a boost. But I don't know what happened yesterday and the day before. I have 5 days until weigh-in and I just know I'm going to do great! And on beyond that, of course. I'm going to see just how many great days I can have from now on. I'm hoping all of them will be great from here on out. I CAN DO IT!! I'm enjoying my exercise again and that really motivates me to do better in the food department. Go, me!

Okay, must start the day! It's only 7:25am here. I did go back to bed a little while this morning but I never did get back to sleep so I got back up at 6:45, brushed my teeth, washed my hair and fed the birdies. After breakfast, I will head on over to my sister's, she has a bunch of Stephen King books she had planned on selling in a yard sale on Saturday so I said I would buy them to add to my collection. Then I will hit the Mervyn's in the mall, I need new slippers and, of course, I'll do a little looking around, all though I really shouldn't buy anything else. I just like to look, ya know? Then it's on to the gym. I plan on doing more exercise than I did the other day. I was just trying it out then and my muscles didn't even get sore so I will increase the amount today. So I'll see ya's tomorrow. Bye for now.

curvy shar on 10/02/2003:
Good for you! Hope your workout today goes as well as yesterday's did!

Well, as you can see, I didn't have a good weigh-in yesterday! I was kinda surprised, since I had 3 really great days before. I guess it was the other 4 that did me in. Haha! And I'm not off to a good start this week. I just don't know what gets into me. I was planning on writing everything down and counting the points yesterday, even if I didn't do so well, but that idea just flew right out of my head before the day was over. First I did go to the gym right after the WW meeting (which was great, BTW, the meeting AND the gym) but I only did 10 minutes on the recumbant bike, 5 minutes at a time (it royally kicked my butt!), walked a few laps on the track and did some arm and ab exercises on the weight machines I like. So I was only there about 40 minutes total. I didn't want to sweat too much (and I certainly did!) because I wasn't going to shower there and I had to go to Sears right next door to pick up some vacuum cleaner bags (and guess what, they had lots of women's clothes on clearance but I didn't buy ANYTHING, almost did though) Anyway, right accross the street is KRISPY KREME donuts!! So I allowed myself just one apple-cinnamon one (darn that drive thru window, if I'd had to go in, I wouldn't have done it, I guess that's their plan and they got me!) So after that it was all down hill. I suffer from that syndrome of "if I screw up once, therefore, the rest of the day is ruined" so I pretty much ate whatever I wanted, although, by the time I passed McD's, I only had one dollar left in my wallet so I didn't go there. So today I'm not doing much better! Why, why?! Okay, from this minute on (it's 11am here) I will eat right, count points and write it all down. I had a huge breakfast so I shouldn't need to eat for the rest of the day, hahaha! No exercise this morning either but I guess I could still fit some of that in. And I do plan on going to the gym tomorrow again and doing a lot more than I did yesterday.

Okay, that's enough of my dreary life. I certainly must make some major changes, huh? I'm glad I have my DD friends here and my WW meetings. I plan to NOT have any more days like yesterday. I just need to remember that once I get started on the downward hill, it's hard to stop so it's better that I not get started there. And I feel so much better about myself if I do the right thing. I'm sure you all know that too. So I'll be back tomorrow. Take care. And I wish some of the old members of DD would come back---Kyrin, Pastagal, SoccerMom, Herb, I know there are more, just can't think of the names right now. See ya later!

breakaway on 10/02/2003:
I really miss those old members too. Especially Soccermom and Pastagal. As they would tell it like it is and tell you to get your butt in gear and not let those places get to you. I needed that today and yesterday! I bought low fat chips and it was a very bad idea...I just could not stop eating them. Tomorrow we will both count our points and we are going to do a GREAT JOB!! RIGHT? I will check on your entry tomorrow looking for your great day! We can do this! Let's not let those drive thru's get to us ok! Just think of how good you will feel passing them by! Good luck to you and I hope you have a great day tomorrow!

Scruffy on 10/02/2003:
The drive thrus are meant to kill us off!!!! It IS a gov't conspiracy, they don't want us living long, cuts into their budget plans of wasting more money :-)

Be consistent, BUT stay AWAY from the drive thru

Tomorrow is a new day, do well ;-)

Happy Monday, everyone! Well, how was your weekend? I did great, except for no exercise. My darn ankle is still hurting so I gave it the weekend off. And I do wear the ankle bandage when I walk, Breakaway, but it doesn't seem to make much difference. I guess it's just going to take a long time to heal. I'm thinking of going to the gym tomorrow after the WW meeting to see if I can use the recumbant bike. Maybe if I have my weight off my ankle I can still exercise on the bike instead of walking. Too bad the gym is so far from me or I'd go every day. It's about a 25 minute drive from here, could be worse, I guess. And the WW meeting is about half way there. I just hate not being able to exercise. Who would have ever thought?!!

Wow, I sure missed the DD this weekend! I'm glad it didn't take too long for it to get back to normal. Now I can go read the new entries. Boy, I'm feeling lazy today. I even went back to bed this morning til 8:30. Well, I'm going to go for now. I'll talk to you tomorrow. Buh-bye!

curvy shar on 09/29/2003:
Happy Monday to you, too! I know what you mean about missing exercise....

legcramp on 09/29/2003:
Good to hear you're doing so well with your way of eating! The exercise will come in time, don't worry!! Make sure you take it easy on that ankle until you're sure it's healed and can properly do your exercising. I know it's a drain when you can't exercise, because it's so hard to get back into it. Believe me, i'm at that point right now! All I feel like doing is sleeping! But in the case of an injury, it's best to take precautions!! Have a great day today!

Man, you must have really sprained it bad huh! Shoot, I thought maybe that would help. You are doing great even though you are having so many problems with that ankle. I am very impressed! Keep it up!

Mandie85 on 09/30/2003:
I hope your ankle feels better soon! I know how you feel about missing your exercise. Sometimes I can't go to bed unless I know I did my exercise for the day or that I'm wiling to make it up on the next day. Good luck with the rest of your week!

OMG, I had a comment from StellaStar this morning!! I'm so glad to hear from her. I haven't been able to check up on the entries the last couple of days so I don't know if she's back for good. I'll check later. I sure miss this place when I don't have the time to check up. And I have so many tapes of the shows I recorded this week to watch this weekend that I don't know if I'll get around to the DD thing. But I'll sure try.

Yesterday--Not real good on the food but could have been worse. I just don't know what is happening this week. I had 6 VERY good days last week and now I'm not even writing things down. Guess that's what I need to do to keep it straight. Only 3 days to weigh-in. And the exercise---I am so aggravated that I can't do very much. Yesterday I could only manage 10 minutes on the treadmill, my ankle hurt so bad. Darnit!! But I did manage to put 2 "hills" in there for the Operation OFB challenge. I still have one day to make up for though so I will be all caught up with everyone else. And my ankle is still sore today, so sore that I don't know if I should push it, ya know? Darn, did I say how frustrated I am?! I actually want to get back to all that exercising! But I also did my arm and ab exercises and, guess what, DH actually said this morning that I'm looking a little more thinner and more toned. Hah! I love it. Although, I don't see how it could make much difference, only a couple of weeks, but I'll take it. Onward and upward, right? I want to walk on my treadmill sooooo bad!

Okay, ya'll have a great Saturday. I'm going to do as well as I possibly can. Lots of water and minimum food. The walk--well, I just don't know. Probably should give it a rest but I'm just so darned motivated lately! I'm busting out of this fat suit! One way or another! See ya later!

breakaway on 09/29/2003:
Gosh! Don't feel bad about that 10 min on the treadmill! At least you got something in for the day. Better then some of us! Did you try wrapping your ankle with one of those brown wraps? That's what I had to wear for at least a year after I sprained my ankle. It helped alot! I was able to walk pretty normal with that on. And at night I would continue with cold/hot packs even if it didn't hurt. Dr told me that would help it. Really didn't notice a big difference with that though. But the bandage was great! They had special ones that are just made for ankle's. YOur toes and heel stick out and that's it.

I got a messege from Stella too, isn't it great to have her back!! Good luck to you and hope you get that ankle to heal soon.

Yippee!! Friday! Although I don't know why I should be excited--all the days seem the same when you're not out working. But I'll enjoy it with all you working people, okay? Well, my mouth is so nice and clean today, haha! I had the best and most thorough cleaning of my teeth yesterday that I've ever had in my life! And it took 80 minutes! Kind of makes you wonder about the other dentists who only took about 1/2 an hour! My teeth still hurt but it's not too bad. And when she did it, she put some numbing gel on my gums so it didn't hurt too bad. So here I am and my teeth look real good, haha!

I've sure got a lot on my agenda today. I got up at 6am and STAYED up, mainly because I needed to go to WalMart and I like to get there really early. Bought some of the new Slim Fast pasta dinners since I had a coupon and I like a nice low fat pasta. We'll see how they taste one of these days. Also bought a lot of other stuff, including a jelly donut, my treat for the day. I know, I shouldn't have bought it but you should see all the stuff I REALLY wanted that I passed up, hahaha! Anyway, I've got so many things to do around here that I know I will be busy all day and still never get them all finished. And I need to go out this afternoon for an eyebrow wax and a hair trim. Nice that I got back to back appointments at the same beauty shop! Haven't had my eyebrows done for months now, they really need it. I hate doing them myself, never can get them all. And once you get them done, you're spoiled for life! Oh, I did get on the treadmill again yesterday for 20 minutes, really pushing it with my ankle {ouch} and I added in 2 hills for the Operation OFB challenge. Still need to get that in today sometime also. Did any of you see Dr. Phil last night on CNN with Larry King? I just happened to have it on while I was walking on the treadmill, I like to read the news at the bottom of the screen while I walk. They just covered pretty much what we've already been seeing on his show and took some calls from listeners.

Okay, I really must get busy here, so much to do. I did okay on the food yesterday, not spectacular, just okay. Sorry I didn't get to read any entries yesterday either and I probably won't have time today either. Hope to get caught up with you all tomorrow. You all have a great weekend!
