Hey, the site is in constant change... I'm at the operations now so I didn't have time to update/write earlier.

I'm glad your work situation is resolved. I love seeing your monthly chart, you have had an AMAZING year young lady!

moogy on 01/20/2011:
Maybe your tummy will settle down now you have made your decision. I can't believe you made an entry with no mention of sport!!!!LOL

chidogs on 01/20/2011:
I am glad you are over the stress of that decision. I'm sure that you made the right one. Take care.

Hello girlios!!!

Sorry, I haven't had the chance / nerves to write before. I'm so nervous I'm constantly on the WC... some people vomit, some people eat too much, some people - like me - have diarrhea when nervous... I'm wearing V's old jeans and they're getting too big, woohoo... the ones with the Lady inside (yes, I'm sharing them with a Lady, hehehe). V will explain for sure in the comments. :P

I've been to tennis today.

Want to hear/read a freaking story? I'm so low on self-esteem because of being fat that yesterday when I went to the store, the clerk at the cashiers was very nice to me, to the level of flirting, I checked my receipts and my credit card several times, looking for signs of cheating (I understood flirting as a tentative to derive my attention and charge me more). Nothing found. But I am a proud owner of a Wilson (I'm a fan of their tennis equipments) badminton racket, at a bargain price of 22 EUR (the original price was 99 EUR).

 Today's menu:

06H00 - soy yogurt w/ Nestlé Fitness cereals

10H00 - LF milk w/ coffee, an orange

12H00 - veggie soup (200 kcal), chicken curry with white rice (400 kcal)

16H00 - an apple (100 kcal)

20H00 - a cacau with some whole grain cookies (300 kcal)

Grand total: 1500 kcal

Progress as of today: 131.6 lbs lost so far, only 39.6 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 01/19/2011:
Sorry about your nerves... Hopefully everything goes well... That is a story... At least you got a great bargain on the racket!! I guess you are going to have to get used to flirting for the RIGHT reasons:)

legcramps on 01/19/2011:
Hey Kathy! So how did your visit with the other company go? Love your story about purchasing a new racket - you never know when you might get picked up ;) Have an awesome day today!

chidogs on 01/19/2011:
Good story. Get used to having flattering looks now, lady. Good luck with your decision making. And my nerves affect me that way too, so I do really understand. So not fun. HUGS.

Umpqua on 01/19/2011:
Sorry you're having a nervous day, but great news on the the racket! I hope everything goes well with your job offers, I'm sure you will know which decision is best in the end.

Yay, a new tennis racquet, this must be like a pair of diamond earring for someone else. I am sure you will smash 'em even harder now!!

V on 01/19/2011:
Well congrats on the jeans getting too big on you! You must have posted after I left for work, I didn't see this one before I left :( Okay so now I am sure the other pair fit like a glove now??? Hummmm I bet you look awesome in them! As Chi said get used to it, It's a tough job being a Glamazon but someone has to do it so why not us! LOL Haha just wait til strange hansome men start sending over bottles of wine to your table when you are out and about, yes free drinks are always AWESOME! LOL Love you, hey have you wore the other skirts yet?

Good morning, Girls!

Badminton was lovely yesterday night - I felt a bit of a tension at my hiney at the end of the training so I sat on the floor and did some streching, which resulted because today I was more than ready for my individual tennis training, YAY!!!! :-))))

Tonight I'm going to visit the other company about the job offer, they want to formalize their proposal (speaking in EUROS, hehe)... I'm a bit stressed, though exicted. My man is very stressed... Wish I could have more time to explain you my thoughts at the moment. Maybe tonight when I arrive home I can get to Facebook, or on Thursday maybe.

Today's menu:

06H00 - a slice of rye bread, toasted, with a slice of LF cheese and a cup of milk, a pepper (350 kcal)

09H30 - LF milk w/ coffee - a lot! :-) 150 kcal

12H00 - veggie soup, a tin of sardines in tomato sauce with salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, raw carrot and some LF salad sauce) - 600 kcal

WOW....look at that weight status bar at the beginning of your entry (top)....if that doesn't scream preserverance and SUCCESS I don't know what does!!! You have come a long way....and are so dedicated! I'm glad to have your support;)

nita51 on 01/18/2011:
Sometime change is good. Weigh all the advantages of stepping into the new position. If the list is longer than the dis-advantages, then maybe it will be a successful step up for you. With your dedication and perseverance, you will succeed where ever you go in life. YOU'RE AN ACHIEVER! xoxo

Good morning, Girlies!!!

YAY for individual tennis tranings... . Worth any price! The sissies didn't show up - for a change, LOL. The cold weather continues and it's much better in bed, it's warmer and it tastes good. I know. I feel the same, but even then I get my butt out at 5h40 AM, catch the bus at 6h20 AM and arrive to the tennis training/gym/pool/etc. at 7h00 am... It's a need, and my body says thank for it afterwards!

I was rather disappointed today morning... The reason was: Saturday morning I met a dude at the gym, he overheard my conversation w/ the trainer, I was telling him about my dieting anniversary, and the pounds lost, etc. This dude appeared in front of me a bit later, he made questions about my diet and said he wanted to lose 50 kgs (110 lbs). I promised him the paper the Dr. gave me, still gave the advice to visit the Dr because he was a man and most probably he could do more calories than a woman, etc.. and I didn't know anything about him (illnesses, restricting conditions) so I wasn't easy on giving advices to the poor dude... but I promised him the paper, all right. We scheduled it for this morning, he was telling me how he was doing gym everyday, and that he needed to schedule it for 7 AM because he had his workshifts changed. Guess what, he didn't appear... They are all the same, I guess. We're in minority, we with better willpower...

Today's menu:

06H00 - LF milk w/ LF cocoa and Nestlé Fitness cereals

09H30 - LF milk w/ coffee

11H00 - an orange

12H30 - veggie soup + boiled codfish w/ cooked veggies (600 kcal)

16H00  - 2 yogurts w/ 2 kiwis and a whole grain toast (250 kcal)

17H30 - an orange

23H30 - veggie soup

Grand total: 1800 kcal

Progress as of today: 131.6 lbs lost so far, only 39.6 lbs to go!

just42day on 01/17/2011:
Thanks for the welcome back. Really appreciate it! Glad all continues to go so well for you. It should as you consistently work it! :)

loveray on 01/17/2011:
awesome with the exercise. it really does feel good to kick in the extra effort, especially in the cold! i did another walk when i got home yesterday when i was about to cave in to a sweet snack and a nap. the walk in the brisk air zapped that need! hope you have a fantastic day.

V on 01/17/2011:
You sure do train with a bunch of candy a$$ pansies!!! LOL I am sure they are all afraid to play them because you will crush them!! LOl How lame that your intensity intimidates instead of motivate! Have a great day ace!!

Umpqua on 01/17/2011:
Good for you for getting up so early to make sure you get your exercise in. Especially since you get a personal training!

Umpqua on 01/17/2011:
You know, I have a feeling I count my calories on the low side. I don't measure things, I eyeball them and guess a lot. So I may be taking in more than MyFitnessPal tells me. I try to round up....All I know is that I'm consistent about the way I count and measure and that system seems to work for me!

tangalyn on 01/17/2011:
aww sorry the guy didnt show up :( oh n yes i do like swiss cheese hehe :) hope u have a great day!

V on 01/17/2011:
Well you tried to do a good deed for someone else, the least he could do was show up even if he has lost his motivation! Hiss loss, he could have learned from the greatest!! Love to my fellow lion!!

Maria7 on 01/17/2011:
You are doing really good with your calories and exercise! :-)

just42day on 01/17/2011:
While I've never really had a sweet tooth, I definitely indulged in too many sweets over the holidays. Glad those are behind me now. :)

chidogs on 01/17/2011:
Some people have impulsive motivation. Then it fades away when they are away from the thing that motivated them. Maybe you will see him again. Anyway, not to worry about random unfocused strangers! You keep doing the good job you are!

chidogs on 01/17/2011:
That is the daughter's bf! :). I think the hubs would object if I had one. Although Jeff Bridges would be nice. I loved Starman too! I love all things animated, so Megamind was a hoot, so was Despicable Me. Of course anything by Disney. I guess I never did grow up. LOL.

hollybelle on 01/17/2011:
Well, don't be too hard on the dude! He may have had someething come up that couldn't be avoided. Have the stuff ready for him next time. 7 a.m. - really! Already posted on your pic - how I like these colors on you! Bold colors really are best!

moogy on 01/17/2011:
I think that you have to acknowledge that you are in a class of your own Kathy. No one I know has the same drive, determination and stubborness you have, not even V, who is close. No one is going to be able to measure up to your high standards. The man will probably show up soon. Have a wonderful day.:)

Good afternoon, girlies! 

Friday it is... I'm seeing changes on DD site, I will have to analyse this, but only during weekend. Filled with work, filled with emotional stress. I'm going to tell you about it on FB. It's more private and I'm a bit paranoic nowadays.

Anyways, I'm in a good mood. I went to the gym (no tennis - foggy, wet weather) today morning, I had a very nice workout. They haven't found my papers yet...

Today's menu:

06H15 - an apple (100 kcal)

 And something to celebrate: my diet... 1 year!

I joined DD exactly a year ago. It's been a productive, supportive, lovely year, one of the best years of my life, and I hope/pray/am sure we have even better ones ahead, together... coz we can, we are able, and we will definitely... MAKE IT!

Hi Kathy, thanks for your message. I do need to find a way to get in more excersise. As I mentioned I walk everywhere, often pushing a buggy but that's it. I have been looking at excersise equipement on ebay. I used to really like the rowing machine when I went to the gym so maybe I'll find one to buy myself for a bargain!

panda22 on 01/14/2011:
Not sure if you are currently working on an entry but I'm commenting on this one that is blank right now to say HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!! lol Hope it's a great one! =) "Shoe pic" soon??? LOL no pressure or anything ;)

Yay your entry magically appeared! You better tell them to get on it and hunt those papers down! You've worked too hard to have to go back steps in your gym routine!

Happy Anniversary! You have come a long way in one year!

My 6th anniversary was on January 7th. Wow, huh! I've had a bad Starbucks habit since college, but in recent years I have tried to cut back since its a pricey habit. Thats one reason why I put an espresso machine on my wedding registry, so I can make them myself more often. :)

As for the baby's name, we've had one picked out since 3 days after finding out his gender. We're just choosing to keep it a secret until delivery day! :)

Good morning, girls!

I had tennis today, yeee... two consecutive days... But the weather was so weird, foggy that the coach had to put high-visibility markers on the court for us to see where the court lines were...

Badminton was +/- yesterday. I didn't feel realized at the end, I like hard trainings and yesterday there were too many people so the coach didn't have time for us. I played with a stupid headache, in addition. Thank you for your sweet comments on FB, I drank a tea and it got better. I'm OK now.

Well, today me and my are going to eat out. Lovely! :-)

Confessions of a coffee addict: I couldn't give coffee up! DANG. I'm so confused, because I've been struggling with low F (ferro - IRON) for a long time and coffee is one of the forbidden things to drink for me. I'm into decaf now, it's good too because I think I just love the flavour! I don't want to give it up...

Yesterday I talked to the boss, results are: raise for me, and a promise to try to find a job for my man. Good, cannot ask for more. Still, if he's  unable to find a job for him in the near future, I'll have to leave, because the other company offers me double than this one. Physically on the bank account, no sh*t.

I was so tense, tired in the head because of this situation, and yesterday I could make it to the gym at night - it felt so good. I really needed it  - 2 hours of working out, 1 hour cardio and 1 hour muscle building.

Well, BAD NEWS, very bad news is that they've lost my file at the gym. I am so pissed at them!!! I arrived to the gym yesterday, there was this Brazilian dude, asking me with puzzled face: "Are you going to train NOW???" (I never could make it to the gym in the afternoons you know, I'm an early birdie, and there's a phsycological issue, underground takes me to the gym all right but the station BEFORE the gym's leads me to the train station where I can catch the train and go home... so I almost always leave at that station and go home instead of the gym, hahahahahah I'm soooooo weak!!!!!!) so... I said yes, I am going to train now, is there a problem? He said: "No, it's just that I found your files here on the desk today morning, they were all around the place so you should look into them". Right, I found TWO files of mine, one with my history and the recent one to continue BUT the physical evaluation file was missing. This file tells me my progress in miles, calories and kilos... the gym's files are slightly different and they don't have the cardio limits I need to change from week to week.... So, it's really annoying, girls... I've been training on this since November, and this is a huge set-back for me...

Good news is: today I had a tennis training, weather's getting better... and I am going to have badminton tonight. LOL..... :-)

That sounds like good news at work for the time being. Weird about your files, very frustrating. I hope they can sort it out soon!

How did they lose the files????Have the cleaning ladies do the filing? Sorry, so not funny. I hope they find them for you. Hopefully it is just misplaced. Take care.

(Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.)
Weight: 194.6

LOL... 194,6 lbs today morning, without the pajamas and without TOM... :-) So I decided to take it and register this weight!

Yesterday was a great badminton training day. Few people appeared, I had Master Yoda (a 80+ year old senior badminton player and trainer) only for me, HAHAHAH... he made me run, and I had to ask him to stop a bit from time to time, WHAT A SHAME!!!! LOL....

I am a bit stressed because I'm standing at a crossroad now. I have a job offer, kinda final state, and I'd like to negotiate here at the current company... but in an odd way. I want them to hire my man, or I leave because the wage I'm collecting from here won't be enough for two if his workplace collapses financially - which is a matter of time. He hasn't received the 14th month's wage in 2010, and things are very uncertain, tense at his workplace. He wants stability (who doesn't) and certanities (who doesn't), and I want that too because I'm very tired and tense. I'm turning to 30 this year, I want to know what can I expect from here, from there... The job offer is great, offers me a salary 2x than here and a new variety of things to learn about, to know about. An international company, too, with possibilities of carrier, better than here for sure. But my life is very concentrated in here, French course is 5 min away, badminton is 10 min away, tennis & gym & pool is 15 min away... DIFFICULT. I'm going to talk to the boss today afternoon. Will let ya know.

Today's menu:

08H30 - LF milk w/ coffee and Nestlé Fitness cereals (250 kcal)

10H00 - LF milk w/ coffee (100 kcal)

11H30 - an apple (50 kcal)

12H30 - @vegetarian restaurant (all sorts of boiled veggies with soy, corn puree and some cake as our friend, ex-co-worker, is celebrating his birthday today) 700 kcal

16H00 - an orange (100 kcal)

21H30 - veggie soup and mango (350 kcal)

Grand total: 1600 kcal


Progress as of today: 131.6 lbs lost so far, only 39.6 lbs to go!

Congrats on the new wait! Sounds like you have a tough decision regarding your job. I hope your talk with your boss goes well, it sounds like it would benefit them to get 2 good employees out of the deal rather than losing a good employee. When life hands you tough decisions, you must Use The Force haha. Have a good one!

Umpqua on 01/11/2011:
Weight I mean, early morning :)

V on 01/11/2011:
WOW!!!! You are KILLING IT!!!! Woohoo! Kat amazing job!!! I am beyond proud of you!!! You are less than 40 lbs away from your goal! It won't be long!!! You rock :)

just42day on 01/11/2011:
Thanks for your encouragement. Frankly, I'm proud of myself just for coming back here today because I really, really, really didn't want to. Will keep trying.

V on 01/11/2011:
LOL!!! I don't know how to get rid of it :( I don't want to be in the negative!

I hope you have a good discussion with your boss. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

As for my second husband, his name is Tim Tebow. He was the superstar quarterback at my college from 2005-2009 and now plays as the quarterback of the Denver Broncos (and a spokesperson for a huge underwear company here in the US). Not only is he a fantastic athlete, he is an amazing example of what a human should be when it comes to character. And he has gotten quite attractive since his post-college days, hehe. Here is a link to an article about him...which has a delicious picture of him. :)

Amazing job on the new low weight! Changing jobs is a big decision. I know you'll do what's right for you. Good luck talking to the boss.

chidogs on 01/11/2011:
Awesome new weight lady!! Bravo! Best of luck on the job decision. Look at your long term and make the decision based on where you want to go from here. You will make the wise choice. Best of luck. Hugs.

Congrats on your new lower number. I love it that you call the badminton guy yoda, you made me laugh. I was picturing this little green guy controlling the shuttlecock with his mind while you dash back and forth all over the court!!! LOL
