Weight: 165.0

Well, long time, no see, huh? But I'm back and back on the wagon, somewhat. I walked on the treadmill yesterday morning and this morning, doing just 40 minutes, 2 point something miles each day. It's a start. The food part is not really coming together yet, although I lost a pound from yesterday's weigh-in of 166. Wow, I can't believe I've let the weight get back up that high. The plan was to never get back over 160 again! So all told, I've gained 15 pounds in the last 3 months. Wow!! And I sure can feel it too! I look like I'm 7 months pregnant! All in the belly, darnit! I'm thinking next week I will start back at the gym again. And we have to move my treadmill back into my bedroom since son # 3 is moving back in with us again. *groan* It was either that or pay his rent for him again. We've already paid the last 2 months. He's also out of a job. When, oh, when does it all end?!! He's 26 years old, this has to stop now! Okay, finished with the rant, thanks.

So how's it all going for all of you? I think when I finish this, I will take some time to go check up on you all. Been kind of lax on that front lately. I hope to get back in the groove here before I get kicked out, haha! Okay, must go do that now. Take care and hang in there.

Just thought I'd come in for a quickie! How ya'll doing? As you can see by the weight, I'm still not "with it". We're leaving tomorrow for a short vacation in the mountains up north of us, cooler weather but still monsoon season there too. We'll be staying at one of the resorts that we are members of, you know, kinda like a time share thing. We'll be back on Friday. I plan on eating right and getting in as much exercise as possible. Well, that's the plan anyway. I hope you're all doing great and I think I'll just go check up on ya's right now a bit. Take care and I'll talk at ya later.

Okay, I have no idea how I lost that pound from yesterday. Just one of those scale mysteries. And today hasn't been too good for the food---#2 son's last day with us so, of course, we all had to go out for lunch at Macayo's, the mex food restaurant, yummm! So I'll try not to eat much for the rest of the day. No exercise today either. Sorry to be such a downer. Yes, biscotti, I have a couple of those "unfinished" afghans too. One of these day.....

Well, chickies, I hope you're all doing wonderfully. Still haven't had the time to check in here to read. Perhaps when I finish this, yes, I think I will do that for awhile. Look out, here I come! And have a great day tomorrow!

Don't worry - you'll get it back again. You've done pretty well with WW - you can do it again!!! Hey, did you hear they are changing the plan again come August? I know they just changed from Winning Points to Flex Points just last summer but I heard they're coming out with more changes next month. Rumor has it that it's not going low carb but will introduce a focus on bad carbs vs. good carbs.

shellybelly on 07/12/2004:
Woohoo on the lose!!!Take care! :-)

stellastaragain on 07/12/2004:
Sometimes there is a loss and we practically feel guilty about it, right? I think those mysterious lost pounds come around to make up for all the times we work so hard and lose NOTHING! Brand new week, so.... here she goes!

Maria7 on 07/13/2004:
Hey, Soonie! I know what you mean about restuarants...my Hubby just LOVES the buffets...I try to be careful, but I love the sweets! Yum! Have a great day! Love, Maria

Hey, there, everyone!! As you can see, I've been having some major food problems---ahem! Oh, well, easy come, easy go, right?! NOT!! I know it will take me a lot longer to take it back off than it did putting it on! So I'm getting started right now!! Although, today has been a very bad day, food-wise. Oh, well, no time like the present to get started! Wish me luck. #2 son is leaving on Tuesday to go back to Ohio, find an apartment and a job. He's been here for 2 weeks and that has been enough to send me over the edge, heh! First he came out here to find an apartment and a job, but after one week of that, he changed his mind and decided not to make the big move. So the rest of his time here has just been vacation. We've eaten out a lot and sat around watching rented movies. Not good for any of us. Although we did go bowling twice last week. That's the only exercise I've had since going to the gym last Monday. So no more excuses for me, I'm tired of the sedentary life and feeling like a slug---a big fat slug, at that! I had promised myself that I wouldn't allow my weight to go above that 160 mark again and here I am. That weight was this morning, sure to be even higher tomorrow morning, sheesh! It's really scary, I tell ya! And next Tuesday DH and I are going on a short 4-day vacation and I'm just not going to let that be an excuse to eat whatever I want and lay about. The weather will be highs of 85 and lows of 55 so plenty nice to go for long walks and hikes. And I'm going to take advantage of that! Okay, I'll be talking to you all again soon. It's time to get back to reading all your entries and leaving comments. I really do miss that. Thanks for all your comments and stellastaragain, I sure do remember you, welcome back, and biscotti, I haven't worked on the afghan for ages and it's still so small you couldn't even CALL it an afghan, gotta get my hands busy at that again. See ya all later. Take care and stay strong!

Weight: 159.8

So did ya all have a great 4th? I ended up with lots of picnic leftovers, probably the best ever potato salad I've ever made and equally as good baked beans. So I'm not about to pass these up, heh! But I did go to the gym this morning and worked out for an hour---2 miles of walking on the track and some Life Circuit exercises. Really worked my arms and legs. But I didn't go all out since it was the first time in awhile. If I'm not very sore tomorrow, I will up the amount I do on Wednesday. The plan is to do this every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and fill in the other days with walking on my treadmill and swimming in the pool. The weight is up where it makes me very nervous so, hopefully, I can get it to go back down now. So here's to being good and working hard. See ya's later.

stellastaragain on 07/05/2004:
Hello Soonie! I wonder if you remember me? I am so glad to see you here. Your fourth just sounds so happy and yummy. I am no success story in the time that I've been away, but I am actually feeling hopeful and even enthusiastic about beginning again. I will be looking for you!

Weight: 158.0

Just a quick note to say "Hi" and I hope you're all doing great! Also so they don't kick me out of the DD, haha! Well, I'm doing okay--weight is at 158 this morning and yesterday. I'm finally trying to cut down on the food but not exercising right now. My second son is coming for a visit and I had to get the spare room ready for him, that's where my treadmill is. It's too hot to walk outside here, even early in the morning but I plan on doing some time in the pool and maybe going to the gym for some workouts. I'll tell ya, my arms and legs (well, and everything else) has really turned to flab since I quit working out. So I'd better get back to it. I know, there are no excuses, right?

Okay, take care and hang in there. Sorry I haven't been here to catch up and leave some comments. I'm just having a lazy summer, bad Soonie! I'll see ya's soon.

Hi, gang! Long time, no see, huh?! I always said I would never just quit the DD without letting everyone know that I'm okay and haven't gone to the great beyond. So here I am. As you can see, the weight has suffered a little since I was last here. I've just been on a looooong summer vacation, haha! I fit in a little exercise now and then and I'm going to get more regular with that now. I haven't been really trying with the food though. Today was supposed to be the "new start" day, but I haven't done as well as I should have. But I'm not beating myself up over it, after all these "new starts", I've learned that sometimes it takes awhile to get back in the groove again and you just have to take it "one day at a time" as Pastagal used to say. Hey, I'd better check in and see if she's been here lately. Okay, this morning's exercise---2 miles of walking on the treadmill. It's a start, huh?

Well, I hope you are all doing well. I'll bet there are lots of newbies here since I was last here. Welcome to every one. I'll try to check in more often now. Take care and have a great rest-of-the-day.

Glad to see you are okay. Incidentally, I have been away as well. Have a great day yourself. annastasia

Hi, I'm back. Well, I've been back for awhile, just not getting here. Thanks for asking, Maria! As you can see, the weight is up a little. Not from the cruise, I've just been so sluggish since I've been back. First I developed a cold and felt bad for a week, now I just can't seem to get back on the wagon. But I will soon. Summer's here and it's really hot here, like 105 yesterday. I've been in the pool a couple of times and now it looks like I'm getting that rash back again on my legs (maybe you remember it from last year, Maria) It seems to be getting to be a yearly summer thang. It started before I even got in the pool so I know it's not that causing it. It started on my toes and then went to the tops of my feet and I can see red blotches forming now on my legs. Oh, goody, another trip to the doc. I just can't seem to stay away for more than a month or so. Ain't life grand?! Jeez, I'm weird.

Okay, I hope you're all doing great and welcome to all the newbies here. I'll get back in here soon and start doing what I should be doing, hah! The cruise was good, BTW, good, not great. But that's another story for another day. I'm just too lazy to get into it right now. Keep the faith, peeps, and take care.

Maria7 on 06/03/2004:
Glad you're back...also praying for your healing. Hope you feel better!

Weight: 155.4

Well, here I am, just stopping in to say hello. How's it going for all of you out there? I hope you're doing right and getting in that exercise like I'm NOT! As you can see by the weight, I've just kinda let myself go. But I was thinking about all this and ya know, this kind of thing is just what usually happens when I have something big coming up, such as my cruise (leave on Saturday) I'm gung ho for almost the last couple of weeks and then that last week I figure, what the heck, it's too late to do anything about the weight now, might as well give in to it all. And that's what I do. I think it may have something to do with the stress too. Oh, I'm not going crazy with it, I'm just a little more relaxed, you might say. You'd think that with vacation coming up so soon, I'd really try harder to lose as much as I can before then, and that was the original plan. But then it somehow went haywire and I've lost control. I know, there's no excuse for it. No exercise either, except for doing all the last minute things to get ready, and that doesn't really count but I am keeping busy, heh! So I may be back to check in one more time before I leave or I may not, who knows?! They have internet on the boat so I may drop a line or two during the cruise, I don't know, depends on how much they charge you for it. I am really missing the old grind though, ya know what I mean? But I'll get back in there as soon as I get back, okay? And I miss coming in here regularly too. You are the greatest folks in the world. So take care and I'll see ya whenever. Bon voyage!

Maria7 on 06/01/2004:
Must be a might long cruise you went on....hope you're back here with us soon...did you say you can do an entry on the cruise? Hope to hear from you soon! Have a wonderful time, btw! (060104)

Well, things here aren't better but I'm here anyways!! Weighed this morning and I'm still the same. And that's a GOOD thing since I've been eating pretty much whatever I want. I guess it could be worse but could be better too. No exercise yet either. I'm thinking maybe tomorrow I'll get back to that. Had some more accupuncture yesterday and my neck is now getting bearable. Now my shoulder hurts. I think we're just chasing the pain around to different places, heh! I've increased my Nortriptyline from 50mgs. to 75mgs. That's used for fibromyalgia, BTW. It really took care of the belly pain I had for about 10 years. All the darn tests and the docs never could say what had caused it. Anyways....I'm doing okay, I guess. We'll see what happens tomorrow. I kinda miss the exercise and I kinda don't, know what I mean? But I'm really enjoying the relaxation of my diet, hehe! I'll try not to gain back too much though, okay? That thought really scares me but not enough to get back on the wagon. Oh, well.....I hope you're all fine and sassy! Have a great weekend!!
