Hello Ladies!

I know it's been a long time since I've posted and I am really trying to make an improved effort to find the time to come to DD to do daily (or at least every other day) entries as the support of all of you ladies has been so beneficial to my success! I hope you are all doing well and look forward to catching up with you all soon as well as getting to know newbies! :)

Hi Ladies!

I know it's been a while.... Life is extremely busy with everything I have going on plus two jobs but I miss you all so much! I have decided that I am going to make extra effort to log in on here at least a couple times of week to track my intake/exercise, etc.... Hugs to you all!


Remember to SMILE, it's good for your health :)

Happy Thursday ladies!  Sorry that it has been so long since I've been able to post! Life has been pretty busy! I can't believe that it is already NOVEMBER! Where did the time go?! My little mini-vaca to L.A./San Diego was fun, sunny, and went well....until it was time to fly home and due to a car wreck at the junction before LAX we missed our flight by SIX minutes and had to buy another one-way ticket home with a pretty long layover in Seattle (our original flight was nonstop). Sigh!  Otherwise, life is still pretty busy...I feel like I'm behind on everything and can't seem to "catch up"....hopefully I'll have time to do that this weekend? I work a 12+ hour shift today and tomorrow so I'm sure I'll be a bit tired... Hope you are all well! Love you guys!

legcramps on 11/03/2011:

Yay!!!! I can finally post entries from my iPhone (which I have been trying to accomplish, unsuccessfully, for quite some time! I am extremely busy~working two jobs, raising two, busy girls as a single mom who have volleyball, tap, jazz, tumbling, lyrical & lots of homework! I can't even remember the last time I was able to watch tv for enjoyment! I'm not complaining by any means but it doesn't leave a lot of time to get on the Internet & post.... Now that I can use my iPhone, I'll be able to post more regularly again....yes! I've thought about all of u so often & hope u are all doing well ;) have missed you amazing ladies!!!

So! Some GOOD news!!! On 9/21, I FINALLY met my big, long time goal... To be <200 lbs! I never, ever want to see that number on the scale ever again!!! It wasn't easy & took a lot of support, dedication, motivation, tears, etc.... But it finally happened!!! 70+ lbs gone since starting this journey!;) still have such a long way to go.... But now I get to work towards my next "big" goal....175lbs!

Hugs to you all :)

Maria7 on 10/06/2011:

I'm still alive! Life has been really busy.... But I'm still tracking along. I look forward to things slowing down some so I'll have time to do regular entries again. I can't figure out how to submit them from my iPhone otherwise I would be here more frequently.

Little update: the girls are doing awesome down in Nevada with their Daddy. They are having tons of fun and are going to disneyland for a week this weekend and are super excited. My dad turns 50 tomorrow so I'll be getting off of work early and going up to their camp to celebrate his birthday with family and friends... Should be fun. On Friday I work another long shift and then I'm off on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday will be spent re-organizing the girls' rooms, going through their clothes, toys, etc and getting ready for the apartment owners to do an inspection on Tuesday. Sunday I will be celebrating the 3rd of July with J's family....looking forward to that! :) Hugs to all of you!

Hi ladies....I'm back.... Sorry I've been MIA. Things have been extremely hectic around here lately....between the girls finishing off their school year, my oldest daughters 10th birthday, getting the girls packed to spend the summer outside Lake Tahoe with their dad, and the death of my bf's older brother (34), and 2 jobs... Sigh. Anyways, I want to look forward and not backwards... Time to get back on the wagon! Thanks for all of your unconditional support, so appreciated! <3

Hello ladies! I'm baaaaack! :) 

So, life has been VERY busy for me as you all know.... Between the girls' finishing off their school year, my oldest daughters friend and family birthday parties, packing the girls to go to Nevada with their Daddy for the summer, working two jobs, and getting the girls to Nevada life has been NON stop! The girls have safely arrived to their dads and I am back home safe.... The second I got back to town, work was calling me in....so of course I went to work and I'm still playing "catch up" from the little trip. I go back to work on a normal schedule tomorrow and will be out of town doing home visits. I need to get back into a normal gym/eating routine and schedule asap... I feel I do best when I have a lot of structure and stick to it. Besides, I'm missing the girls like crazy and so the busier I keep myself, the better. I have missed all of you so much and can't wait to get 'caught up' with you awesome ladies. I'll be back to tracking my intake/water/exercise on this site regularly tomorrow and plan to start participating in the FB challenges again starting next week. Thanks again for your continued, unconditional support! So appreciated! LOVES!!!

moogy on 06/07/2011:
So glad to have you back. I know you will miss the girls but this is a great time to spend time doing things just for you. I am sure that you will enjoy getting back into the groove and a regular routine.:)

The rest of yesterday went well for me (just super busy). Food intake was great. I am at work right now and don't have much time but want you to all know I'm still alive! :)

**Happy MUFA Tuesday**

Hi ladies! Thinking of you all and missing you girls like crazy! I am in desperate need of my life to slow down even just a little bit. At work now, it's been steadily non-stop since arriving... My daughters both had their well-child checks yesterday and today though which is another important "to do" off of my VERY long list. They are both doing great and growing right along....thriving and healthy. My youngest has some really bad allergies though and gets horrible symptoms from them; so they are trying her on some new medications and hopefully they'll help (fingers crossed). I haven't had much time to eat today and I've been so busy that my appetite is kind of "blah".... I'm sure it'll pick up here in a bit. Hugs to all of you.... :))


B: Coffee (2)

S: skinny carmel machiato (SP) from SB (4)

L: small side salad; 4 croutons, tomato, red onion, cabbage and 1TB ranch (4)

Happy Monday gals! So sorry I've been MIA. Everything is going okay and food & exercise are good, too....Just extremely busy. Between two jobs, trying to get the girls prepared to spend the summer in Nevada with their dad, birthdays, activities for the girls, doctor appointments for the girls, 2 jobs, etc it seems I rarely have time to sit and breathe let alone post. I hope that things become more stable for me soon (as far as time management, etc goes). Love you all.... XXOOO
