Happy Monday, again! Another week coming up. They sure do go fast any more! Things are okay with me. I'm hanging in there. No exercise over the weekend but I did do some much needed house cleaning yesterday. Yeah, happy mother's day, haha! Somebody's gotta do it! Haha!
Today will be gym day. I've gotta get busy on this and keep it up. I did go Friday and just walked for 2 and a half miles. Today I will start back at the weight lifting too. And not that much walking. It's hard to get started when all I really want to do is eat junk and sleep. But that doesn't get me anywhere, does it?! So here's to today, may it be a good one for us all! Take care. I'll see ya tomorrow!

Hey, everyone, how's it going? Boy, I just haven't been with it lately. I must get here more often to see how you're all doing. It's not that I've been busy, I'm just lazy. So sorry. Things with me are just not good. Trouble with the DH and, ya know, he doesn't even know it!! Must just be my hormones. I'll tell ya, ever since I had to give up the Prempro, I'm just going nuts! I didn't get to sleep last night until around 2:30! But I won't go into details. I'm just so depressed.
Okay, enough with that stuff. I'm going to try to do better, I just have to. Thanks to you all for being there. Hope you're having a good weekend.

Weight up just a little. Could be worse, the way I've been eating. Not much to say today, not the usual Soonie. I think it's because I'm not taking the hormones anymore. By afternoon I'm so depressed. And it didn't help yesterday, watching Oprah, the husbands who had affairs. So depressing. Okay, you all have a great day. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Just a short one today! Things are about the same here. Not eating really good but we did go bowling this morning so that was some exercise. Now I'm just all worn out so I'm going to watch my soap. So tomorrow is weigh day and I'll find out how much I went up, er, down-----whatever. I don't expect any miracles. Take care. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Hey, I'm late today!! Hi, everyone! It's official---I'm now a 56 yr. old, old lady, haha! Happy birthday to me. So we went out for my favorite breakfast and completed a few errands afterward. And that's that! What to do now?! I'm thinking about exercise but I don't know. I had planned on going to the gym today but now I just don't feel like it. I know, we never feel like it but I should just do it anyway. Maybe get on my treadmill but it's probably hot in my bedroom (where the treadmill is) by now and we're not running the AC yet (going to 90 today). I don't want to drive all the way to the gym because we were just over that way this morning and I'm a tighta#$ on the gas now. Just doesn't seem right to waste it. All kinds of excuses, right? Last night I was so determined to change things today but now I've lost that get-up-and-go feeling. Well, we'll see. After all it's my birthday and I can do whatever I want!!
Okay, you all have a good day. Thanks, Jolt, for the comments. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Thanks for all the great feelback! You are the greatest! But I'm still in that slump. I was going to get up early this morning and walk on the ole treadmill but didn't make it. At least I'm up and showered. That's an improvement over yesterday. My eating is not the best but not as bad as it was last week. I just feel so bored. I know I need to do something but just can't make myself do it. I know, too much whining here! You all have a great day. See ya!

Good Monday morning, everyone! Well, that sounded chipper but, really, I'm not feeling chipper, heh. And I just don't feel ready to get going at the gym today either. First I need to go to the tanning place, then over to take care of my sister's cat. She went on a cruise this week with my Mom. So we also have Mom's cat to take care of too. At least I'll be doing something. I know, not a good Soonie. I just don't know what's wrong with me lately. I'm going to try to eat better though. I feel llke a DD dropout! Have a great day and I'll see ya tomorrow----maybe.

Still struggling along here. I hope you all won't black ball me from the group. I'm a very bad DDer lately. Did any of you see Oprah on Friday? That young girl whose husband was unhappy with her weight gain was me, exactly!! I sat there, trying not to cry cause DH and #3 son was watching it too. But I felt very weird, hearing her say the things that are always in my mind. And DH has been very nice to me since then. I guess he must have guessed that that was exactly how I felt. I always felt like I wasn't good enough for him (36 years!!) and all I've wanted to do was have him be proud of me, proud that he was married to me. I think the weight gain stems from all of that.
Anyways, I'm still going at it. Not doing too well though. I know I'm just hurting my health. Diabetics need to watch their diets, I know. Sometimes I think I must have a death wish or something. Okay, enough deep confessions for one day. I hope you're all doing great. I haven't been checking up on you all lately. I'm so sorry. Well, tomorrow's Monday, a good day to get started. I know, what's wrong with today?! I'm trying. Please give me feed back and a big kick in the you-know-where. I really need some help. Thanks to you all for being there. See ya tomorrow.

Hello, there! See what just a small change in diet can do for a woman. It's coming off nicely. Still way too high though. I haven't started exercising yet either. So tomorrow I plan on going to the gym. You might say, "well, what's stopping you today?" Okay, I have an early appointment with the eyebrow tattoo lady and then I'm taking myself to breakfast. And you can guess where---that's right, the pancake place! I'm treating myself to my favorite pancakes. Then I'm going to the mall. I bought some shorts at Sear's the other day and like them a lot so I'm going to get another pair. Oh, btw, DH is back and everything is good. Although, you know what, I didn't miss him at all while he was gone, I was too busy eating junk!! I guess that's why I did it. It kept my mind off of him. Kinda kept me tranquilized, I guess. Very sad, right? So now I'm paying for it! I feel just terrible with this extra weight. It doesn't take much of a gain before you really know it. All my clothes are a little tight. My weight did get all the way up to 174 at one time this past week! Sheesh! So easy to put it on, so hard to take it off.
Okay, here's to a great day for everyone! It's gloomy and cloudy here today, going up to about 74 or so. But I won't let it get me down. Have a good one, y'all!

Good morning! I'm still here, still plugging away. Not doing well though. Eating junk, no exercise but I'm happy, so far. I don't know what happened to the old Soonie of a couple of weeks ago. I was doing so well for a week or so and, now, this! But I'm not giving up! I was thinking of PastaGal last night. Remember her, anyone? That woman is a saint! All that she went through and she still kept on at it and reached her goal. I wish she'd come back and let us know how she is doing. And CharlieAngel and so many others who have deserted us. Some I just can't remember the names. Oh, yeah, how about crittermama? Let me know if you can think of some of the other names who are no longer here at DD. Okay, that's enough. Sorry if I'm bringing anyone down. Soonie's just going through a bad patch. Maybe it's just the change in the weather. And my DH isn't back yet. He'll be back Wednesday. You know, while the cat's away, the mouse will be a pig!! OINK!! See ya all tomorrow!
