Hey everyone,,,,,well yesterday turned out good,,the shower went super and the food was good,,,eveyrone really enjoyed it and my daughter in law got some really neat things for the new baby:}

Today i got up early,,we got dressed and ready to head to town,the wind was blowning so hard here today,,i hate the wind by the way,,my allergies have been horrible all day from the wind,,,,

Yesterday i was so tired by the time the shower got over and last night i had planned to take a HOT bath and hit the bed early,,and about 9:30 my daughter called and said lil ashley had fell off the bed and hit her head on the front,,her forhead and to get over there quick,,,,,i took off in a rush ,,,,

Her head had a goose egg so huge on it,,,so had kathy run her into ER to have it checked,i didnt think they would do much for it but tell her to watch her for a bit,,but they xrayed and came back and said she would be ok,just to keep a close eye on her for 24 hrs,,,,well happy to report,she is fine today,just a big egg all black and blue,,

Seems she decided to bounce on the bed,,while mommy was in the kitchen,,,and she flopped right off the bed on her head,,don't think she will do that again,,,

well today we went to Sams club,,,took my daughters car and left it there and had new tires put on it for her,,,then went in my vehicle and did some shopping,then stopped at Dairy Queen and had lunch,,,i had a hambuger and fries,,,and tonight i had made some homemade chili beans and had a small bowl,,,with crackers,,mmm they were so good to,,,

well didn't drink my water today ,only two bottles,,but sundays are not my day to drink much,,,,so back on track in the morning,,,well gonna cut this short,,i am pooped tonight ,,but wanted to get on and read entrys and find out how everyone has done the last two days:} i just can't sleep if i don't read these things:}}lol,,,,the girl is HOOKED,what can i say:} nite everyone,,,see ya tomorrow,,,,

Hello, Pastagal, thank you for your comment. I am enjoying reading your journal. This is a first for me. What part of the country do you live in? I live in the southeast and we are beginning a thunderstorm tonite, with sharp lightning, so gotta go. GREAT to hear from you! Maria

maria7 on 12/16/2000:
Pastagal, I also meant to congratulate you...I see that you have lost 12 pounds since September and with these holidays, that is an outstanding accomplishment. How many calories a day do you do? I see you are on Weightwatchers. I think that each of their points add up to about 50 calories and there is no limit on type of food eaten? Maria

Good morning everyone,,,,its a cold and dreary day here in calif today,,,but makes it feel more like christmas this way i guess,,,well i finished wrapping all my gifts last night,,,all under the tree,,well almost all,,have two items that are hidden in the closest till christmas cause i can't wrap them,,,,Now the trick is,,to not forget to bring them out at christmas,,,lol

This morning i got up ,,went in and started trying some stuff on,,need to figure out what i am wearing to the shower tomorrow here at the house,,i found the sweater i wore last yr to a christmas party,,i put it on,,and stood there in amazement for a few mins,,,it hung on me,,,literally hung on me,,,and last yr,,,,was snug,,,wow what a great feeling,,:}}}} Thats what makes me want to continue what i am doing and not EVER stop,,,i still have my days ,,moments that i don't feel smaller,,but when i try something on that was once Tight when i put it on,,,i know i have made progress and it is an awsome feeling:}}

I am so grateful that my husband is so willing to help our daughter with so much like he does,,,he pays for so much for her and never complains,,,tho i know he will love the day she is able to provide more for her and the kids,,,but right now,,she just isnt able,,newly divorced and its just tough when your a single parent,,,her x i hope will one day help the kids alittle more,,maybe once he gets over the anger he seems to have about the divorce,,,anyway,,,thats another story,,,lol

Well food wise i have been doing ok lately,,,i even think this next week i might see a loss in the scales,,,but if not,won't let it get me down,,especailly after trying that sweater on this morning and seeing how baggy it was on me,,,whoa what a feeling:}}}}}

Well everyone have a great friday ,,be safe out and about today and for the ones who don't come here on the weekends,,have a GREAT weekend to ok,,,,see ya all later:}}

Lagniappe on 12/15/2000:
Isn't it great to have things fit looser!? I put on a pair of jeans this morning that I haven't worn since last year. I haven't lost much (yet), but I can tell there's a difference and it feels terrific. Congrats! I tried to remember to bring some straws to work with me this morning, but I forgot. I have a whole box of them. I used to only drink soda out of a can if I had a straw. No more soda, but I'll try to remember the straws on Monday. Keep up the good work.

Lagni :)

muggg on 12/15/2000:
Congratulations on the sweater! That is so neat... I am really thrilled for you, especially since you've been feeling fat lately!

It's so neat to be able to do for the kids... I'm glad your hubby is generous. Hopefully your ex-son-in-law will come around.

I'm going to try the straw trick once I get moved.

Soon2BThin on 12/15/2000:
I'm glad you're feeling so good. Trying on that "too big" sweater must have felt so good. Have fun at your party tomorrow, I'll be thinking about you.

Hi Pasta:

How's things today? You sound very energetic and upbeat. Glad you're not feeling "FAT". I do because I'm expecting my "." in a couple of days and I'm getting all of the warning signs. Your weather is still better than what we had in NJ last night, this morning - sleet/freezing rain/ice. What a combination to wake up to and have to drive to work in but thank God, I arrived at the office safe and sound. A lot of people decided to stay home and schools had a delayed opening so traffic was lighter than usual.

That's nice how you help out your daughter. You're a good Mom and I bet she really appreciates all you do for her and the kids.

Have a great diet day today...

Take care,


muggg on 12/14/2000:
Pasta, don't worry about my freezing here. I'm keeping so busy... I'm melting the snow all around me!!! (LOL)

How sweet of your hubby to be so generous. Glad things worked out for you. I don't think my husband will be so quick to catch on. But he is going to make some improvements. I might not miss him as much as one would think. I'm ready for some peace and quiet and sleep... he reads till 2:30 am with the lights on! I won't miss that. I finally bought a sleep mask! Anyway.. I can see him as much as I want. As far as I'm concerned we're going back to the dating stage. If that doesn't work out... then bye..bye! I'm giving him a chance though. I do want us to stay friends no matter what we decide!

dvdmon on 12/14/2000:
Hey Pastagal,

You're right, I do need to eat more veggies, I just don't buy enough and not being a cook I don't know how to make much other than just nuking them and putting butter on them. I think laziness comes into it too ;-) I am allowed veggies, and even fruit too, as long as I keep my carbs to 20-30 grams per day. So I basically can have a small to medium size portion of veggies at each meal, or a pretty small portion of fruit (which has a lot of carbs in the form of sugar), but not both as I would go over my daily limit. I've usually only been getting veggies in at dinner and I was getting fruit in for breakfast via my fruit smoothie, but I haven't had it recently. I just found a protein shake that has only 2 grams of carbs, 135 calories and tastes pretty good, so I'm thinking of mixing my fruit smoothie (basically frozen berries blended together) with the protein shake to get a well-rounded but fast breakfast...

KT on 12/15/2000:
Heya Pasta,

Sounds like you put in a full day at work. I was laughing when I read the part in your entry about you cleaning out your grandkids room. My own mother does the same thing. I know you did it because of the new furniture and I'm sure your daughter was happy to see it done. My own mother just seems to get on a tangent and goes to one of my sister's house and cleans up. I think I need to move closer so I can get these perks!

I hope everything goes painlessly with your bridge work. You have all my sympathy when it comes to dental work. I think I would be happy if a dentist never had to do any work in my mouth again. I hope you have a good day tomorrow and Take care of you!!

Good morning all you great people,,,can ya tell,,i feel good today:}} I woke up and didn't have that FAT feeling ,,,finally it left me,,i think not drinking the water had lots to do with it,,cause yesterday i drinked 8-16 oz bottles and tho i spent alot of time in the bath room,,,i feel so much better ,,,so gonna try hard to do the same daily,,,i am useing the straw,,which helps so much to get the water in ,,you don't think about it and you find yourself drinking twice as much :}

Its cold here today,,dreary lookin outside,,cloudy and kinda like it might get foggy later today or tonight,,,last night it was crystal clear outside,,which since i had to run to town ,was glad for that,,don't enjoy driving in the fog at all.

well i didn't weigh last night,,,i know i didn't lose,,so when i headed to town,,,decided i wasn't stopping and weighing in,,would just be wasted money,,,,so i weighed here at home this morning,,scale says the same,,so no gain is better than a gain,,,i will for sure weigh in next tuesday tho,,,,and hope to see a loss,,,i am trying to keep my pts down and i know if i continue with the water as i am right now,,,i will lose,,,:}

well now about my menu,,,,lets see,today is going to be,,,,,and i always list it cause i do so much better if i start my day out knowing what i am going to be eating at each meal,,,works good for me cause i am home all the time and can plan that way,,,

Breakfast:,,,scramble egg 2pts,,,2slices bacon 2pts,,v8juice,,diet pepsi,,,1/2 banana 1pt,,

Lunch:,,,Large green salad 2pts,,,cup tomatoe soup 2pts,,crackers 2pts,,ice tea,,,

Dinner:...Burrito,homemade,,,6pts,,green salad 2pts,,apple & banana cut up in fat free cool whip,,,2pts,,,ice tea,,,

Well that is it today,,,hope everyone has a wonderful weds:}}}}

muggg on 12/13/2000:
You sure are a busy gal!!! I'm glad you lost that fat feeling! It is so frustrating. Keep up the good work.. I know you'll see that loss next week!

What are you serving at your baby shower?

cutiecat on 12/13/2000:
It looks like your diet is great! Very well-balanced and lots of variety. Don't worry about not losing today, just stay focused on your diet and I know you will succeed!!

Have fun with your grandchidren!!

krndrln on 12/13/2000:

You are doing so well on your eating. :) Keep up the good work...staying the same this time of year is really an accomplishment, you should be proud of yourself. I think there is something ingrained in us that makes us think we have to eat more during the holidays so if you can keep it on an even keel through this time then you will be rolling the first of the year. :)


KT on 12/14/2000:
Heya Pasta,

You really are in a good mood this morning! It's good to see someone that cheerful. That "fat feeling" gives me the blues in itself. I'm sure losing that helped bolster your good mood.

You're doing great with your diet. With all the things you have going on in your life you seem to be juggling them all rather well. Just when I think I have alot going on I read one of your entries and just get tired looking at it. Keep up the good work and your spirits! Take care of you!

The Bug on 12/14/2000:
I think the water has a lot to do with my weight loss. When I drink my 140 ounces of water, I usually stay in my 1500 calories and I'm just more careful. This past few weeks, I've been slacking on the water and doing about 60 - 100 and cheating with the eating. This past week has been good, food and water, and I've lost a pound.

Hope you have fund at the baby shower and it's not too hectic for you. It's a lot to do, just before Christmas.

Well i skipped eating first thing this morning,,but after my shower i had some of my left over spaghetti i made last night,,,and 1/2 cup pudding w/fat free topping,,,,,diet pepsi,,so gonna count that as my lunch and breakfast and will probley just have a snack later this afternoon,,,

I am going to finish wrapping gifts today,and making a list ,cause i have to make another trip to town tonight,hubby laughed at me last night,he says,,,see i knew you would think of something else to go buy,,lol,,,anytime i tell him i am done,,i always find more to go get,,,lol

Snack,,,,Popcorn while watching my show"Once and Again"

Ok,,,have a great day everyone:}}}

muggg on 12/12/2000:
Wish I was home wrapping... you're putting me in the mood! Oh well, I can do that tonight.. I like to put on some Christmas music while I do it!

You put me to shame with your water! You know, I wonder if after a time we get accustomed to our weight and no longer feel thin.. then at a lower weight we feel fat. Remember what you would have given to weigh what you do now? Hang in there... it will happen.. you're being too good for it not to!

Regarding cookbooks. I actually take them to bed with me for nighttime reading. I can never stay awake long enough for real reading! I do try the recipes in them though. My favorites are yummy ones that look special! I also like cookbooks with stories in them, like the author traveling or how they grew up!

Good morning everyone,,,,Well yesterday went really good here ,,,the birthday party for my granddaughter turned out nice,,,food was great,,,everyone had a really good time,,,Ashley got so many cute things,,,i think when she gets older,,she will say,,gosh i am glad my birthday is so close to christmas,:}

Well tho everything turned out great,,,i was so tired last night that i was almost sick,,,havent been that way in long time,,,

Once i went to bed,i tossed and turned all night,,,,hubby did the same thing,he said this morning,,,i think it was cause both of us were to tired and sore all over from working so hard on sat and sunday morning getting things prepaired,,,

You know your out of shape when just cleaning house and prepairing for something such as a birthday party makes you sore all over,,lol,,,so keeping my fingers crossed that i get that membership to the gym for christmas,,,which if i don't,,i will just get it myself;}

Well today i have to run to the bank,,and do a couple errands,then get back home,,,,cause my mother inlaws brother is driving up to visit her for a couple hours,,Oh ya,i got her up last night before bed to and gave her a shower ,,,,,which wears me out just doing that,,it not an easy task,,she can't stand,,walk or do anything ,,and it like lifting dead weight to get her up in the shower,,,but i still do it,,i know there is going to come a day soon when i will have to stop doing that and just bath her in bed all the time and wash her hair in bed to,,,

Well i actually didn't eat much at the party yesterday,,,i seem to always be worrying that everyone else is having a great time ,,getting enough to eat,i forgot or just don't settle down enough to enjoy the food,,,but last night we had some of the same thing for dinner and i enjoyed that alot,,,,,didn't get my water in tho,,,but starting today i am getting back on the water hot and heavy,,got to,,,gotta get this ucky feeling to go away,,,

Well my menu today is going to be,,,,

Breakfast,,,,scramble eggs,,2pts,,,bacon 2pt,,v8juice,,diet pepsi

Lunch,,,green salad w/ham,turkey cut up in it,,3pts,,cup tomatoe soup 2pts,,wow chips 1pt,,ice tea

Dinner,,,Homemade spaghetti,,,6pts,,,salad 1pt,,,ice tea,,,

Snack,,,,,orange 1pt and popcorn 1pt,,,,,

well that should do it for today,,,Going to really try to be good for the next two weeks and see if i can lose couple more lbs before christmas,,,tho i do have a baby shower to give this sat,,,so not going to beat myself up if i don't lose more before then,,,i do know,,once this holiday thing is over,,this girl is getting really serious about loseing the remainder of this weight,,,i have my 30 yr class reunion in july,,,and that will be here before i know it,so gotta get serious after christmas:} Have a wonderful monday all of you,,be back later.......

The Bug on 12/11/2000:
Good job keeping away from the food. You'll make up for the water, today.

muggg on 12/11/2000:
I can see a positive change in all of us.. we no longer panic if we get off track. We are determined to eat healthier and drink our water and exercise for the duration.

I had hoped to be to my goal weight by the end of the year when I started out. But really I have done so well to have lost 27 pounds. I know you are proud of what you have lost too. We will make it through the holidays without gaining and we will be ready to get serious again. It should be easier... so many people will be starting diets with the New Year.

KT on 12/11/2000:
Heya Pasta,

I think preparing for any party will wear you out. Hosting a party is alot of work. You want everything to be just right so everyone will enjoy themselves. I'm planning a Christmas dinner at my house over the holidays. I'm already starting to rearrange and get a menu together. I think I'll be happy to have it but also happy when it's over.

This time of the year it's really hard to stay on any kind of schedule. I think as far as dieting we just have to do the best we can and wait for the chaos of the holidays to subside. I've been trying to keep some sort of order but with all the errands, shopping, decorating, and cleaning it's hard. Keep doing as well as you have been and it will work out!! Take care of you, KT!

herb on 12/12/2000:
Thanks for your comment on the confidentiality of your diary. There really isn't anything bad there its just that you dont want people who you know personally to be reading it. You said that DD has really clicked with you, I feel the same way. Getting to know you, Jenny, Mugg, jaimy_sella. There slowly like becoming my friends.

jaimy_sella on 12/09/2000:
i hate that feeling. the "fat" feeling. one day i'll feel so good about myself then the feeling comes and its blah! cheer up!!!!! easier said than done, but i'll cheer you on if that helps!

Soon2BThin on 12/09/2000:
I know that "fat" feeling very well, I'm sure it will go away soon. You are doing so well. How's that chicken rice soup?

muggg on 12/10/2000:
I sympathize with the "fat feeling". We all do feel that way at times. Hang in there and keep drinking your water. You just reminded me that I haven't started on mine. I already have opened a soda. Most days I wait till noon to have my first soda of the day. I credit you for my soda reduction since I am doing the Strawberry carbonated water each day. But since it's Sunday, I didn't go to the gym and I'm out of my routine.

I just chilled a bottle of my water and am going to get that water in today!

Thanks for your support. It's hard for people to believe what goes on in an alcoholic household if they haven't seen it themselves. He can be so sweet... but not when he's been drinking "that much". They can easily convince you that you're imagining things when the next morning rolls around and things are ok. But after this much time.. I know better.

Have a good day!

Glad to hear you're doing so well. But I didn't hear anything about exercise, LOL. It sounds like you keep yourself so busy though, you probably burn up tons of calories. Oh, that chicken rice soup sounds so good, I'm not much of a cook. I bet it's way better than the Campbell's kind, huh? I'll bet you have another good weigh-in next week. Take care. PS-how cold is it getting there now?
