Hey, thanks for all the comments, you know who you are. I did have a good weigh-in this morning, as you can see. Less than half a pound to go to my WW goal, then I'm going to go on losing, of course. Couldn't hurt, huh? So, why did I have such a bad day today?! What am I trying to do, sabotage myself again?! I'm full right now from eating 2 slices of pizza:( That in itself wouldn't be so bad but this afternoon I even ate more junk I shouldn't have had. Maybe it's the stress of visiting with my MIL today. I didn't really want to go but I thought I should since I probably won't see her or my FIL again after we move soon. It's not that I don't like them, I just know they are not happy with me & probably think it's all my fault that I'm taking their baby boy so far away from them (my hubby). Or maybe I'm just being a B@#$%! But still I do feel some stress whenever I'm with them. I know, I know, just excuses for overeating, not allowed!! I should know better by now. And no exercise today either. Oh, well, I'll do better tomorrow, famous last words. Gotta go read your journals. Have a great night. Thanks for listening.

So, tomorrow's the big day, I hope I can change that number over there in the upper left corner, LOL. I would have to rate my week as a 10 this week. I think I've done better than I have in a long time. I exercised every day, had more than enough water every day & stayed within my point range every day, HOORAY for me!! I'll let you know tomorrow how I did weight-wise. I'm actually looking forward to that WW meeting. Today I walked 3.5 miles this morning. I've had 17 food points so I can afford a snack soon. I've also had 80 ounces of water & still have to take my Metamucil with another glass of water. Things are almost all packed up & ready for the big move. We sold our living room furniture & kitchen table & chairs, so things are looking pretty bare. I'm really looking forward to getting in the new house on March 1. My 22 year old son is moving in with his older brother so he won't be going to Arizona with us. So this will be the first that my hubby & I will be without kids in the house since we got married. I had a son from a previous marriage, so we've always had kids from the very beginning. Should be interesting.... I read all your entries today but didn't have much time for commenting, there are so many now. You're all doing great & are so inspirational. Keep up the good work. WE CAN DO THIS!! Thanks for listening.

Thought I would get in here & make my entry BEFORE I read all of yours. Usually by the time I read all of yours, I run out of time for mine, LOL. It seems there are just not enough hours in the day to do all I need to do lately. Well, yesterday was a very good day, low eating points, I walked 3 miles in less than 50 minutes, & the opthalmologist (?) said all is well with my eyes. With all the headaches I've been having lately, I wanted to rule out a problem with my eyes. He thought they could be stress related & I tend to agree with that. I feel tense all day long, I don't know why. Today has been good also. No exercise this morning except bowling, so at least that's something. I was going to ride my bike this afternoon but wussed out on that. At lunch, while they all ate some really good things I wished I was eating, like chicken fingers & chili & fries, I had a cup of beef-barley soup with a few crackers. It was good & kept me from being very hungry for a couple of hours, but when I got home after some grocery shopping & a stop at Wal-Mart for more of that water (btw, I wish they made it in chocolate flavor) I ate another lunch. I'm still within my points allowance for the day with room for dinner, so I guess that was okay. So I guess I'll go eat the afore-mentioned dinner now, probably just something light, I need some fruit for the day. Hope you all had a good day. Thanks for listening.

Okay, the scale monster is playing games with me, I shouldn't even get on it every morning. But this morning it said I was up a pound, waaaaaahh! I choose not to believe it though. After all, I've been really good, haven't I? I know I have! Didn't let it blow my day though. I only did 2 miles on the treadmill this morning, I guess I was feeling sorta depressed about the weight. You know how it is, you don't get what you want so you say "the heck with it, why am I doing all this?" So I figured some was better than none. But I didn't let it affect my eating today, I only had my minimum points, so that was a good thing. I've also had 80 ounces of water. The weight has got to start going down soon, right? Thanks for listening.

Waaaahh! I got on the scale this morning & it hasn't budged since Thursday. I kinda thought maybe it would. I usually don't weigh more than once a week but since I am so uptight about it right now, I will probably check it everyday, just posting my WW meeting weight though, on Thursday. My scale is different than theirs. I did get in some exercise this morning again--3.5 miles on the treadmill in one hour, I was moving, LOL. I also ordered a new walking music tape from sportsmusic.com today since I packed up all my faster walking music already & I need a variety. They usually ship them right away so it should be here in a few days. I got the 60's music, it looked like some good songs. I've done well with the eating today, stayed within my points range, but I feel like I ate more than I should have. I think that's a mind thing. I'll try to eat a little less tomorrow even though I'm allowed more. Feeling real tired right now so I'll probably go to bed early tonight. Today was laundry day, 3 loads, a lot of up & down stairs since my washer & dryer are in the basement, so I got even more exercise there. Hope you're all having a good weekend. Take care. Thanks for listening.

Hello, everyone! Here's what I did today--Had to go to a doctor's appointment this morning, luckily it wasn't til 10:30, so I didn't have to drive in the icy-snowy weather we had early this morning. I just went for my last check-up with this doctor, he drew blood for checking my cholesterol, thyroid & sugar. I'll find out next week how everything is. I hope the cholesterol isn't up again, those pills I used to take for that were soooo expensive, I don't want to take them again, I'm on enough stuff as it is. So I came home & ate a small breakfast since I didn't eat before cause I was supposed to fast. I did do some exercise this afternoon, 2 1/4 miles on the treadmill in 40 minutes. I did real good, food-wise, today too. I was thinking today that I'm not going to let it bother me if I don't reach my goal before we move. I've set myself up for disappointments like that before. I know I can do it & I'm giving it my best shot, but you never know about that old scale monster. So I figure if I do really well on eating & exercising & water, that will be enough, even if I don't make it. At least I'll know I gave it my best. Oh, almost forgot, I've had 80 ounces of water today so far too. The water is really not a problem for me anymore, thank goodness. If I could lose weight just by drinking lots of water, I'd be skinny, LOL. I bought some of that flavored water from Wal-Mart yesterday too, tropical fruit & peach melba. It's really pretty good when you get tired of the bland water taste. A message for SoccorMom: I do have family living in Arizona & I've missed being with them all these years, even though I have visited sometimes. It will be really nice to be able to call them whenever I feel like it & drop in sometimes just to talk. I have 2 sisters & my Mom, a brother-in-law & a teenage niece. Also a brother in another city there. My husband's family lives here so it will be kinda hard for him, but I did it for 32 years, so I guess he can too. So other than being on here, reading entries, that's all I did today. Hope you all had a good day. Thanks for listening.

Hey, cool, blue!! I love this computer stuff. Thanks, Muggg!

Okay, I'm trying a new color today, hope it works. If not, I'll just look stupid, LOL. Notice I only lost 4 tenths this week but I'll take it, it's better than nothing. And I'm already looking forward to next week when I should drop considerably. I'm off to a better start to the week too (my week goes from Thursday to Thursday). Usually I cheat pretty bad on Thursdays after weigh-in, figuring I have all week to make up for it. Haven't I figured out yet that doesn't work? Yep, now I have! So I'm staying in my point allowance today & I did 7 miles on my bike while watching Oprah. Usually Thursdays are my exercise day off but I'm going to try to exercise everyday this week if possible, at least some. I've just got to lose that 2.2 pounds before I move away from here (for those of you who haven't read my entries, I'm moving to Arizona from Ohio in less than 3 weeks so I only have 2 more Weight Watchers meetings to go) I need to reach my goal before then. So no more cheating, I can fit some good things I like into my allowed points, right? Just not McDonald's, LOL. So I'm feeling really great today & I hope you all are too. Wow, it takes me all day to read all the entries now, hehe. This is getting to be a popular place. I wish Panda & Adam & Tabitha would all check back in though. If you're out there, guys, let us know how you're doing. Well, gotta go, so much to watch & tape on TV tonight. You know what an addict I am. Talk to you tomorrow. Thanks for listening.

Brrrrr! I'm so cold tonight. Sometimes I think it's all the water I drink all day. It's nice for in the summer but I just can't get warm until I'm under my electric blanket at night. Pretty soon now... I've had another great day today. Walked 3 miles on the treadmill this morning & I felt bad when I first got up, sinus headache again, which leads to nausea, but I dragged myself down to the treadmill & told myself I'd do just whatever amount I could. But after I was going for awhile, I felt pretty good so I did the whole 3 miles, yippee! I sure hope I get to change that number up in the left corner tomorrow. Weigh-in at Weight Watchers, for those of you who don't know. I did really well again with my food intake, just 19 points today & I'm all finished with eating today. I had 80 ounces of water so I made that quota too. I'd have to rate my week at about a 7, maybe 8, on a scale of 1 to 10. And I plan on doing even better next week, I'm so determined to reach my goal. So wish me luck & I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes. Thanks for listening.

Boy, am I tired!! I'm ready to go to bed already & it's only 7:38. 2 more hours to get through, I guess. I'm going to bed early since there is nothing on the tube after Frazier that I like & I always tape NYPD Blue & Judging Amy at 10:00 cause that's usually too late for me to stay up. Here's why I'm so tired--I got woken up at 7:30 this morning when the guys came to take our living room furniture that we had sold. So since I was up, I proceded to get ready to go bowling. Bowled the usual 3 games in 1 hour, then on to lunch at the Chinese buffet. MMMMM, I really enjoyed it & savored every morsel. Only ate one plateful though & didn't go back for seconds & thirds as everyone else did. I did have an eggroll though, I love those. So to compensate, this afternoon I rode my bike for 6 miles & walked 2 miles on the treadmill, for a total of 380 calories burned. I ate a light dinner but I still feel hungry, though I really shouldn't, I did eat enough, I think. Must just be my mind trying to fool me, huh? So I'll just watch some TV (The Mole, I love that & Frazier) then head off to beddy bye. Hope I didn't do too much damage with the Chinese food, we'll find out Thursday. When I hear about how so many of you have been sick with this thing that's going around, I'm just grateful that I haven't come down with it yet but I guess my time will come but I can hope not. I hope you are all feeling better now. Going to go take my daily Metamucil now, maybe that will fill me up finally. Thanks for listening.
