Weight: 153.4

Okay, back down there once again. I have 2 days until weigh-in, let's hope I make goal, or within 2 pounds of it. As long as I'm within 2 pounds (which would be 152 or less) I won't have to pay. Then I think I will weigh in again the following week so I won't have to weigh until the end of June. Heh! Does that make sense. I need to weigh-in once a month and I don't want to have to weigh in right after I get back from the cruise. So if I weigh in again a week from Tuesday, which is May 4, I will be weighed for the month of May, thus, I won't have to weigh in until the end of June. But I have to weigh-in this week too for the month of April. Have I lost you yet? Well, that's my plan anyway. I have to weigh-in once a month if I want to attend all the meetings for free. Oh, did I mention, I'm a lifetime member. The regular members weigh in every week.

Soooo, how's ya all doing?! I hope you're having a good weekend. I found a good way to keep me from going to McD's on the weekends. I just let myself have a bigger breakfast from home instead of my usual breakfast. Piggy, ain't I? A lot less points than McD's (did you know, a sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle is 13.5 points??!!) And that's not all I usually get either. So I can have a nice big breakfast at home for only 9 or 10 points. My usual breakfast at McD's would use up all my points for the day plus more, probably! And I will exercise today again.

Yesterday's work---60 minutes treadmill and ate 22 out of 25 points possible. So a great day for a weekend.

Okay, time for breakfast (it's 8:45 here) I haven't eaten since before 7pm yesterday and I'm totally empty and burning up body fat ;) So I'm going to have a great big breakfast--2 eggs, 2 pieces of wheat toast, oatmeal and a cup of green tea! 9 points! Well, you all have a very nice day and I'll see you lighter, later!

squiggly on 04/25/2004:
You made complete sense. Good luck on your weigh in. When do you leave for your cruise? Where are you going? I'm sure you said but I missed it. I'm sorry. You are doing really well. Keep up the good work.

roxy321 on 04/26/2004:
Congrats on the drop, wow, you're a lifer? i plan to be one day! hehe, well hope you had a great Sunday and a WONDERFUL monday! Keep up the awesome work! much love!

Weight still the same. And I had a great day yesterday too. I ate only 17 points of the 25 I could have had and I did an hour of exercise at the gym. So I thought sure I would drop some today. Darn scale! But I'm not bothered by it. I know it will drop tomorrow. I just hate this going up and down. I need more down than up. Oh, thanks for all the comments yesterday, you guys are the greatest. It helps to know I'm not doing this alone. Well, I have an appointment to get my hair cut at 9 (it's only 8 here now) so no exercise so far this morning. But I will get it in later. I remember I didn't do any last weekend and it was a disaster. I don't need more of that.

Well, you all take care and have a great weekend. Hang in there. We can do this---together! See ya tomorrow!

Okay, hold your ears, there's a lot of bad language going on here!! Look at that weight! What the heck happened?! Oh, yeah, that's what happens when you weigh every day, haha! So what if I did over eat a little yesterday---okay, maybe more than just a little. But it wasn't a total pig-out! Hopefully it's just water weight, plus the little problem with my system--ahem!--and it will go away by tomorrow (well, I can dream, can't I?) I was totally ready to just give up this morning and go and eat whatever I wanted today but then I thought, no, wait a minute, that will just make me gain MORE weight, dummy! So I'm going to trudge on and keep going. Even though I feel very depressed about things, you know, just tired of thinking about food and diet and exercise all the time. I NEED A BREAK!! Well, I'll get that when I go on the cruise, I just have to keep that in mind. So hopefully, I'll get some encouragement here to make my day easier. HELP!!

Okay, today's plan is to eat right, drink lots of water and go to the gym sometime this morning and have a good workout. So here's to all of us having a great day! See ya tomorrow!

geevee on 04/23/2004:
You do know what happens on a cruise, right? A friend of mine who loves cruises describes it as a forced feeding every hour and a half. There are SO many meals, snacks, opportunities to eat that she finally decided not to go on cruises any more, saying "I can't afford to gain a pound a day" which is what happened on every cruise. The cruise is going to be a REAL challenge to your diet.

squiggly on 04/23/2004:
I know what you mean. We have to keep plugging away. I managed to walk an extra mile today. I feel it to. I wasn't in the mood and made myself. YOu can do this today also. Just keep thinking about the cruise and how good you are going to look! YOu'll have all the eyes on you for looking so hot! Keep up the good work. Just a piece of advice. DOn't weigh everyday. At the most every other day. I know it is tempting. I am making myself wait two weeks at a time. I want to see bigger results. Anyway, good luck! You can do this.

Cynt on 04/23/2004:
Girl you are magnificient!!!!! Don't let the scales fool you. They are designed to do that every now and then. You have put in a tremendous amount of work and received tremendous losses for it! Sure, you will gain some on the cruise ... that's bound to happen but prepare your mind and do what you gotta do. Blessings!!!

flutterby3910 on 04/24/2004:
keep it going. you know that if you have a set back on the cruise, you'll overcome any damage in time. but if you give up completely, there'll be no overcoming. only more obstacles and bad feelings coming over you the next time you decide enough is enough. stick to your guns and you'll be fine. everyone gets those days when they want to give up. more importantly we all have those ups and downs on the scale too. i can have as much as 9 pounds in fluctuations!!!! so measure yourself too. it'll be a number to fall back on when the scale is being unfriendly. don't give up!!!

roxy321 on 04/24/2004:
haha, there wasnt one word of bad language! And yeah dont worry im sure its just water weight.. you really shouldnt weight everyday.. bc of times like that.. hehe, just forget it, and have a wonderful day! I know what you mean, i feel like my life is figureing out how many points this is and how many i still have, and idunno, but in the end..look at the reward? It has to be tough or else we wouldnt get such a grand and pleasureable outcome.. hehe so have a great weekend!!

Well, up 2 tenths this morning. Hardly worth mentioning, hah! No reason, I did have a good day yesterday. I did 40 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the recumbant bike. And I ate 25 out of 25 points allowed for the day. So a pretty good day. I'm just not getting enough veggies though. The fruit I do okay. Oh, well.

So this morning I've done just the 40 minutes on the treadmill. I did 3--5 minute hills at incline 4 in there too. Wow, it kicked my butt this morning! Do you find that sometimes you have days where the exercise is harder than others? Well, that was me this morning. I'm going to have kind of a lazy day today. Nothing much that I have to do all day, just the usual things that have to get done every day. I feel like taking a nap but I'm trying to fight that feeling off. I have to leave at 2 this afternoon for another session with the accupuncture. He wants to try putting the needles in with me sitting up instead of laying down because the muscles in my neck relax more when I'm laying down so I guess he wants to do it with the muscles more tense. I'm not too happy with this idea but heck, if it works, that's great! My neck does seem to be getting better but not all the way normal and pain-free yet. I think he said after this time that we'll take a break and see how it goes.

Okay, I want to thank you all for all your nice comments. They just make my day! And it keeps me going every day. Can't let the DDers down, right? No, really, this site and all you people keep me on track. Thanks! So 3 weeks from Saturday we leave on the cruise. I want to lose as much as I can before then because I know I will probably gain some back on the cruise. I hope not too much. I'll try to get in as much exercise as I can. DH and I usually don't use the elevators when we're on a cruise and take the stairs all the time but I'll be with Mom this time and there's no way she's going to take the stairs. But I'll try to do it as much as I can. And I'll try to check out the gym on the boat too. Some exercise is better than none, I guess. This boat should be really nice, it just came out in March this year. I'm looking forward to a great vacation.

Okay, that's it for today. Gotta get going on some things around here. I wish you all a great day. Take care.

Weight: 153.0

And ready to break into the 152's!! Yep, being really good last night paid off. A new low weight! I only ate salad/thousand island dressing (regular dressing,that was my splurge, I still had 10 points left for dinner anyway) and 2 small pieces of bread WITHOUT butter and drank 2 glasses of water. It wasn't easy! Everyone else was scarfing down the beef and the sea food and cake and ice cream for dessert. And it all smelled sooooo good. I touched not one measly bite! Yayyyyy, me!!

Okay, that's enough bragging! Oops, almost forgot, I worked out for an hour at Bally's yesterday---18 times around the track for 1 1/2 miles and 8 of the Life Circuit machines AND I increased my amount on each one from 2 sets of 12 reps to 3 sets of 12 reps. Except on 2 of them which are kinda hard for me anyway. So anyway, a good exercise day too. I'll tell ya, I almost didn't get there. Here's why---when I went to Sam's I bought a large package of boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Well, I had brought an ice chest to keep everything cold in my car while I worked out, but when I tried to fit in the chicken thighs, the package wouldn't fit. And what could I do, I couldn't return them. So I drove all the way home to put them in the frig, which took 25 minutes. Now I could have just given up and not driven back to Bally's, which was only a block away from Sam's. Not to mention how mad I was at my stupidity! But I got back in the car and drove another 25 minutes back to Bally's and did my work out. So almost an hour of day wasted with driving. I hate that! And the way gas prices are, DH would have a fit. But I didn't tell him, hehe! But it worked out okay. And I was glad I did it!

Well, how are you all doing this fine Wednesday?! I didn't get time to come and check on everyone yesterday but I will today. I don't have to go anywhere today and I can get lots of work done here at home. So far I haven't exercised, it's not even 8am here yet. We get to sleep an hour later now with DH's new job. But I will get to it later, I promise. DH just left for his new job at Lowe's, he started yesterday, although the store hasn't opened yet for business. It's a new store, BTW. I think he's going to like it better there instead of working outside in the heat, up on roofs, working on coolers and air conditioning units at the schools. He'll be working inside a nice, cool store, selling faucets and plumbing fixtures and maybe cashiering once in awhile. He's never done anything like this before so he has a lot to learn. We still don't know what his hours will be or what days he will work, after this week. So all in all, it's a good job move. And we get a 10% discount, haha!

Okay, where was I---oh, yeah, how you're all doing. I hope things are going great for you all. I'm going to go get ready to start my day. Take care and have a good one!

Cynt on 04/21/2004:
Pat on the back and a complimentary FOOT massage! Boy I wish I could gain your sticktoittiveness. You've got your eyes set on the prize and I don't think it's going to be long before you get it. Congratulations on a great day! Cynthia

You are doing great. I'm so happy for you. Keep up the good work. I don't think I could have made myself drive 25 minutes back to the gym. I have a hard time some days just getting myself to go for a walk.

ldsgirl on 04/21/2004:
Look at you-doing such a amazing job with your eating and exercising. I admire you so much. You are keepin me motivated. Talk about going the extra mile (25 for that matter)!

roxy321 on 04/21/2004:
Oh you are doing so great! YAY you shot down the sweets good for you! Im so *jealous* of working out! Keep up that great work and you will see a new low soon! much love

I didn't weigh yet this morning so don't know if I went down any. I should have though. I did very well yesterday---22 points out of 25 possible and the 60 minutes of exercise I did. And I know I lost a lot of water during the night, haha!

Here's the plan for today, a very busy day---first, the WW meeting at 9:30, then I'm going to Sam's for a few things, then on to Bally's for some exercise. I'm going to increase what I've been doing today since I haven't been getting sore muscles much. I did go last Friday too, don't know if I mentioned that. So I think going twice a week will work out fine. Then I will come home and eat lunch and then shower. We're all going out to dinner tonight at Stuart Anderson's Black Angus for my niece's birthday. So my plan is to just eat salad. I will eat a small dinner before I go. I don't want to eat a meal there because it will be after 7pm and I try not to eat after 7. Also I'll take my own salad dressing because I don't think they have any low fat or fat free ones there. So that should work out fine. It will be hard to watch everyone else eat steaks but if I eat before we go, I should do fine. I'm mostly just going for the company anyway. It will be my Mom, my 2 sisters, my brother, my BIL, my DH, of course, and my niece and her boyfriend. Maybe my son will be there too. So it looks like a pretty busy day. It should help keep me from eating very much.

Well, how's it going in your neck of the woods? I hope you're all staying strong and getting that exercise. We're all going to be nice and thin this summer, right? You all take care and I'll see ya tomorrow.

ldsgirl on 04/20/2004:
You are doing so good staying true to yourself and your plan. Sounds like a busy but fun day! Keep up all the good work and lots of luck tonight. Social eating is my weakness.

geevee on 04/20/2004:
You're REALLY motivated! and strong to boot, being able to avoid the "beef bash".

pinkuspettuty on 04/20/2004:
That is a busy day. Hurray for the exercise!! Good luck with the weigh in.

roxy321 on 04/20/2004:

Well, I'm kicking my butt all around the house this morning (does that count as exercise?!) I was getting so close to my goal and now look!! What is it, do I try to sabotage myself for some reason?! Oh, well, all water under the bridge now so I must just go on from here. Let's do it!

A good thing I made that promise yesterday on here to stay up and do the exercise this morning. Or I would probably be sleeping right now. It's 8am BTW. That really helped, to know you would all be watching, heh. So I just finished doing 40 mins. treadmill and 20 mins. recumbant bike. Yippee! And I'm glad I did! So I'm off to a good start (except for the extra 3 pounds, sheesh!) I hope it's just water weight, well, mostly anyway.

Okay, you all go out there and have a super day today. Remember, exercise is the key. Move your body! Take care and I'll see ya all tomorrow.

pinkuspettuty on 04/19/2004:
Good job on the exercise! Think positive, Sooony, You can do it! Pam

ldsgirl on 04/19/2004:
It just depends on how high off the ground your butt is. haha. I wish housework counted. I never can stay at it long enough to get my heart rate up. Ya gotta take a break every now and then or its no fun. You motivate me so much in the exercise department. I thought of you at the gym today. Keep going because we are watching!

Eek!! Up a whole pound over night! Well, really, I deserved it. And today is no better. I even planned the whole day first thing this morning while still half asleep. (Not a good idea!) That bad Soonie-person took over the whole thing. I was so tired and lazy I decided today would be another "no exercise" day. Bah! Not a good idea. So that's how my day has been. All alone, nothing much to do (hah, really there's plenty of work) bored. Guess I need to find something to occupy me on the weekends. I just couldn't get my mojo back. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a much better day (hey, isn't that just what I said yesterday?!) Well, Mondays are always good to start over on, right? I WILL stay up in the morning, I WILL do lots of exercise before breakfast, I WILL eat right all day!! Lord, help me!!

Okay, I already read all of today's entries here. Good to see everyone is doing well. I left a few comments but the "lazy Soonie" is still taking over so I didn't leave many. Love you guys! Have a great week!

ldsgirl on 04/18/2004:
Your Saturday sounds like mine. I don't know what happened. I just lost my mind and didn't stay focused. Okay tomorrow is it we are renewing out commitment and getting back on track. Thanks for being there and making me feel like I'm not alone!

roxy321 on 04/18/2004:
Yes ma'am, weekend forgotten, now then it's a NEW day and a NEW WEEK! great eh? hehe , so get to it, It always feels better once you get the ball rolling again! At least you see your mistakes and are willing to make the right changes.. and you arent just eating more and more bad stuff! So hey go do it girl! much love and strength!

joe_anne2 on 04/18/2004:
<font color=blue>Hey Soon2Bthin You are so close to your goal weight, don't give up. Every little effort you make does count, if the scale doesn't show at least you know your are on the right track. Since you didn't say anything about not eating OP, then your OK.

About the question you asked, "what medication am I taking for my diabetes?" The doctor has me taking glucovance 5/500 three times a day. I just switch to once in the morning and two before bed, it was starting to work since some of my readings where down to the 180s, but since I had school midterms and projects due and stress, it made it go up again. And of course yesterdays cake and breads.

BUT like you said tomorrows a new day, a new week and I will increase my exercise because I know that really helps me with my b/s control. My next checkup is not until June.

You have a Blessed week friend. </font>

Blah! The scale is up again. The only explanation I can come up with is I didn't do much exercise the last couple of days. But I did really well on the eating, I thought. And today---well, today is just a day I'd rather forget!! Lazy, lazy! I haven't done anything as far as exercise and I had McD's for breakfast. But I did think long and hard about this for 2 days and I still don't know why I decided it was okay??! And the rest of the day followed suit! As I said---Blah! I feel terrible now. If I just remember what this does to me, I wouldn't do it! And too many sweets with my diabetes. FOOLISH! And the doc just put me back on meds too. What the heck happens to my thinking?! I really can't afford to do this if I want to make goal by the 27th! Now I'll really have to buckle down and exercise like a fool! I'm guzzling lots of water now hoping that will help somewhat. Let's just erase this day, okay?

Those Boca chicken things I mentioned are really not chicken, they're made from soy, I think. Guess I really should look to see what I'm eating, heh! They have a nice crispy coating like fried and a slightly spicey taste. I really like them and will buy some more soon. And only 3 points. Also need to get another bag of the pre-cooked, grilled mesquite chicken breasts from Sam's. They're only 3 points too and taste great. Really good cut up on a salad. Oh, and they're really chicken.

Okay, I'm tired today so I'll explain accupuncture some other time, sorry. I hope you're all having a great weekend. So far, I'm not. See ya's later.

And the scale went back down a little this morning. Whew! I'm on here very late today, ain't I?! I had a very busy day. First I had a doctor's appointment this morning at 11 and since I went back to bed this morning, it took me the rest of the morning to get ready. So no exercise this morning. I didn't get home from the doc's until 12:30 and then I ate a little lunch, a little lunch because I like to eat light when I know I'm going to have to lay still for at least half an hour a couple of hours later. I had an appointment with the accupuncturist at 2:30. Don't need any indigestion when I have a bunch of needles in my neck, heh! So I got home from there at 4:30, had to stop off at the grocery for some apples and bananas and salad on the way home. So far I haven't fallen asleep while laying there with my face in the donut pillow. Or started drooling, haha. It's sooo comfortable! The needles don't hurt much at all. And I get a nice relaxing rest! So after I got home I was very hungry again since I hadn't had much lunch and I ate dinner at 5. I had one of those Boca Chicken things, the spicy one. Mmmmmm! They are really good on a one point bun with a little FF Miracle Whip and sliced tomato. Anyway, that was my day. I may get ambitious and do some recumbant bike while watching Survivor later. I just love seeing that scale go down the next morning. And it seems if I don't exercise, I have no loss the next day. Or I might just be lazy and veg out in front of the TV, haven't decided yet. Okay, I'm going to go fix me some strawberries and banana and watch Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. It's on at 6:30 here. Then a great night of TV ahead. Hope you're all having (or had) a great day today. See ya tomorrow.

inmorning on 04/15/2004:
I have always been curious about accupuncture. Can you fill me in on why you are getting it done and how it is?

roxy321 on 04/15/2004:
ohhh accupunchture sounds good! I need a nice relaxin rest too! hehe, Anyway it is so nice when the scale goes down, even a lil isnt it? Well keep up the great work! you sound like you have a nice balance goin on! have fun watchin your fun shows! much love

chunkeemonkee on 04/16/2004:
Did you know that you burn 16 more calories watching television sitting up than laying down? I learned that today and really wanted to share it with someone and well, since you said you wanted to veg, just thought you'd be the one. =)

silence on 04/16/2004:
Congrats on the downward movement on the scale! What exactly is a Boca Chicken thing, out of curiousity? :)
