Okay, a better day today, feeling-wise, anyway. I feel much better. No exercise though. My bad ankle has been bothering me the last couple of days. (remember, I sprained it really bad last August) If I walk a certain way, it's okay but I have to be careful. So I didn't walk this morning but I may get to it later. DH and I are going to meet for an early dinner at Red Lobster (his favorite place) so I'm keeping the points low most of the day. And I probably won't eat much there anyway. Except I have to have at least one of the garlic-cheese biscuits, haha! I'll probably just have a couple of his shrimp and a salad, like I did the last time we went there.

So did I mention that my Mom is taking me on a cruise again, this time to Alaska? May 15 for one week. We're going on the newest ship in the Princess line and we'll have a mini-suite. Hey, my Mom likes to travel in style, haha! We've both already been there before, me with my DH and her last year with her brother. She's taking me because she would have to pay the same even if she went by herself. Go figure! And I can be there to help her get around. So that gives me some more incentive to lose more weight by then, even though it will be cold there and I will be more covered with clothes. I'd rather be going to a warm place but this is what she decided. She doesn't like the heat and humidity. So we should have fun anyway. Then next Feb. DH and I are going for a week to Maui, a resort right on the beach. I've already made our reservation. Now I just have to get us a flight over there.

Okay, enough news about me, how are you all doing today? Aren't we all glad that they got the DD site fixed quickly?! Thanks, Jay! And a good thing we have the DD thing on Yahoo. It helped to be able to communicate with each other. Well, take care and have a great day. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Oh how fun! A cruise to ALaska! My FIL lives there. My hubby was adopted and his birth fater lives in Anchorage (SP?) It wold be cool to take a cruise over there. What a great mom! You are doing a great job sticking to you diet, hang in there! Have a wonderful day.

Yay, the site is back up!! I'm not going to say much today, back in that funk again, really bad. I did exercise the last 2 days but none today. Today has been a really bad day. And, ya know what, I just don't care. Sorry I'm such a whatever so I'll be back tomorrow. Hopefully things will look better then. Be good, chickies!

starlight on 02/05/2004:
I'm such a whatever too. My poor boyfriend has to deal with me :/ I get depressed soemtimes, but it always goes away - hmmm coincidence that it goes away usually when a few pounds of fat does too? hmmm. Well I hope you are feeling more cheerful soon. Take care of yourself and try to have a better day :) Kim

Here I am, late again! Why, oh, why, did I sleep in again this morning?! After I made breakfast for the DH I went back to bed. I should know by now that this just makes me lazy for the whole day! And I feel bad about it! So I need to not do this any more! Also, no exercise yet. I ate breakfast and I've been watching Regis and The View. I need to fix my hair and get to the grocery store for a few things. Then sometime this afternoon, I WILL get on that treadmill for at least 30 minutes. And I need to do my ab and arm exercises too. Days like this I kinda feel like going off the diet too and just eating what I want, but I'm not going to give in to that. It's hard enough to lose this weight as it is. I can hardly believe that I've only lost 3.8 pounds in over 4 weeks now!! Sooooo slow!

Well, at least yesterday was a good day. Even watching the Super Bowl, I only went over on points by 1. And no, I didn't see the half-time fiasco, DH kept flipping the channels. He hates that kind of music, he's sooooo old! Haha! Some of the commercials were pretty good though. I liked the Jimmy Hendrix one, pretty clever. And the one with the pooting horse, haha! What a surprise!

Okay, I sure hope you are all having a better day than me. I'm going to try to pull it out of the dumpster and make it a not so bad day, okay? So you all take care and I'll see ya tomorrow.

I slept in today also. I wish I woldnn't do it but I do. I get up early and end up going back to bed. I should get to bed earlier and maybe I could stay awake the next day. We sure end up having day's when we want to give up. I know that all to well. It's great to see your going to stay stong and do the right thing! Keep up the great work!

Weight's still the same this morning. But I just finished 50 minutes on the treadmill!! Whew! I think I just sweated off a couple of pounds! I don't think I'll be doing that too often. I just wanted to have 20 extra minutes for the first day of the "Idita-walk" so if I miss a day of walking, I won't have much to make up. Does that make sense? If I don't use my fingers for walking, how come it's so hard to type right now?! Haha! So how is everyone else here doing today? I already had a big 10 points breakfast so I'm going to take it light for the rest of the day. Good thing I earned some extra points with my exercise. No weight lifting today, my day off from that. I do arms and abs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and legs on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Sunday--day off. Yesterday was a good day, I even had one point left over for the day. Yay, me!!

Okay, heading for the shower now. I did sleep in this morning, that's why I'm on here so late. But at least I got the exercise in. 25 out of 30 days now of exercise. I can't believe it myself. So I'll see ya tomorrow and I'll be back later to check up on everybody. Have a nice Sunday!

P. S. Forgot to add----I did end up doing 30 minutes on the bike yesterday!

<font color=blue>Your exercise this morning was awesome! I'm impressed! OK.. I'd better go start mine... the day's going to get away from me. I'm looking for that "pump" from working out. You're my hero right now... :-)

Happy Saturday!! So I slept in this morning! Got up at 8 and haven't done any exercise yet. But I plan on doing some later, maybe just ride the bike, I don't know. My neck is killing me this morning. I still haven't found out about the MRI I got 2 weeks ago. I called the doc's yesterday and they didn't get the films and the receptionist couldn't decipher the written report so I need to call the hospital and ask what happened to the films. Just didn't get around to that yesterday. My neck has hurt every day since last April, you'd think something was really wrong for it to keep hurting like that. Some days are better than others and today is one of the worse ones. Probably irritated it yesterday doing the arm exercises or crunches. Such is life.... One of the reasons I want to lose this weight and get healthy is so that when I'm REALLY old, I'll still be in pretty good shape. My Mom is 72 and her weight really holds her back sometimes. And you know, the older you get, the harder it is to lose the weight, believe me! So the scale went down a little today but not into new territory yet. But if I look at what I've written down every Saturday since the first of the month, it shows that I went down some every week. So I write down every Saturday's weight on my calendar so I can see the drop. I didn't make my mini-goal of 157 this month, I had thought that wouldn't be so hard to make, only 4.8 pounds, but I was wrong. I'm doing all the right things and I exercised 23 out of the last 28 days, so I know if I keep this up, the weight will come off. It's just sooooo slow!

Okay, time for a little breakfast, almost 9am. I think I'm going to be lazy most of today, {{yawn}} So what else is new, I'm lazy most of the time lately, haha! It's cloudy today and almost 50 already. I should go out for a walk later but I don't know, we'll see. So you all take care and have a great day. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Might be a bulging disc. My hubby has one and he is having to go to pain management therapy. It's the last option before surgery. Hope everything turns out alright.

muggy on 01/31/2004:
<font color=blue>Hey Soon! It's muggg... had to change my log in to muggy but that's OK. I'm back to cheer you on! I'm sorry to hear about your neck. I had whiplash as a teenager and it still bothers me some.. and yes, those crunches can irritate your neck. You might have good luck doing squats with the exercise ball. Have you tried one of those yet? I like it because I can do it while watching TV and it actually makes you do more than one exercise at the same time. The squat works your legs and ABS and middle. The ball supports your back and it doesn't stress your neck. It is a little challenging to learn to balance but that comes very quickly! Take care!

I have a freind who is 52 and she is in great shape and looks like she is 35 (not kidding) she went through brain surgery and breast cancer and has always said how hard it is to lose weight as you get older and I sure believer her. THat's why I would love to do it now while I am still 35. Not young young but it's going to be easier then if I were 45 so I have to just tell myself this is my last hope for losing this much weight and keeping it off. You would think it would get me going huh!? Well want to say that I think you are doing wonderful and you will reach your goal. I think the slower you lose it the more likely it will STAY off. Good luck to you and you have a wonderful day!

I hate the way my weight keeps going up and down!! But at least I'm not seeing the 160's any more as I was last week. I don't think I'm going to make my mini-goal of 157 by tomorrow, darnit!

So this morning I wanted to go back to bed soooo bad. But I couldn't figure out how I could and still get my exercise in and get to the grocery store and clean the house and do some laundry, all before the family comes over for a fish fry today at dinner time. So here I am, already did 15 minutes on the bike, 25 minutes on the treadmill and my ab and arm exercises---total of 80 minutes. And already had 40 oz. of water. So after I get my shower I can start the day, hahaha! Oh, and needless to say, I won't be eating the fried fish. Sister is bringing a nice salad so I can eat that.

Well, yesterday was another good day for me. Stayed under my points allowance for the day again. Then why did my weight go up?! Just to aggravate me, I guess, darn scale monster! But I know the weight is going to go down again so no problem.

I hope you all have a good day and a nice weekend. I wish I could send you all some of our good weather, it's going near 70 today with sunny skies. I'm going to enjoy it. Take care and I'll see ya tomorrow.

breakaway on 01/30/2004:
AHH 70 sounds so wonderful...maybe we will hit -70 with windchill tonight lol. No we should only hit about -50 at the most. I will be thinking of your weather when I have to go out to work tonight and freeze my tush off in my freezing car that doesnt like to run in this cold weather. It takes me 15 to get to work and my car is just starting to warm up by then lol. So anyway!! You are doing a super job and to avoid that fried fish is awesome! Good for your sis to bring you that salad...tell her I love her for that! I am so proud of you! Your a great inspiration to me. You have a good day and enjoy that weather!

Good morning, DDers!! How are you all doing this fine morning?! Well, I resisted the urge to go back to bed this morning so I've already done all my exercise for the day. I did 20 minutes on the bike and 25 minutes on the treadmill but first I did my leg exercises. So a total of a 60 minute workout! Whew, I'm wiped out! And I saw a drop on the scale this morning but still not below the 158 so I haven't changed it here. I don't know if I will make my mini-goal of 157 by the end of the month, only 2 more days to go. But I'm still going to go for it.

Yesterday's news---I ate only 21 points of the 25 I could have had so it was a good day. I need to get more vegetables in though so I'll work on that. I convinced the doc to let me have 3 months to try to work on the blood sugar thing so I'm not taking any meds for that now. So now I have even more incentive to eat right and do the exercise. I want that blood test to be good when I take it the end of April.

Calling all past DDers!! Where is Scruffy, PastaGal, CharlieAngel and Stellaaaaaa!! We miss you all and would sure like to hear from you. And Kyrin and Soccermom and Herb and I know there are others I can't think of right now. Come baaaaack! Okay, that's enough for today. I hope you all have a great day. I'll be back later to read and comment. Take care and I'll see ya tomorrow!

JellyBelly2 on 01/29/2004:
What was that one girl's name that lost all that weight and got down to like a size 2? That bugs me! I think of her often. Radar ever check in? My mom put my dad on that diabetic diet, plus they went vegetarian except for fish and deer meat (nothing w/ hormones pumped into it) When he went back for his next sugar test, his sugar was completely gone and he had lost 30 lbs. They told him just to keep at it. Have a good one!

breakaway on 01/29/2004:
I know!! I miss all those guys too! I am really worried about Herb though, he was always here no matter what and there was nothing saying he would be gone for a while. I sure hope nothing bad happened to him. I know his freind was here for a while but I'm not sure if he would check his comments here or not. He would know what's going on i'm sure. I've tried emailing him and still no word. I know pasta said she would be leaving for a while but would check in once in a while. I really miss her.

Well, you did great on your exercise today! I am very proud of you! Good luck on your blood sugar test, I hope it works out for the best. Keep up informed and keep up the great work!

malh on 01/29/2004:
I love to get my exercising done in the morning, but only can do that on the weekends. Makes the day go better and I find I don't cheat as much if I've already done the exercising. You have a great motivator to eat right if it will keep you off the meds...good luck on that. Make the wise choices today. Mary

Hi, gang! I'm back! Just finished 15 minutes on the bike, 25 minutes on the treadmill and did my ab and arm exercises. Whew, my arms feel like wet noodles! I use weights with the arm exercises, in case I didn't mention that before. Anyways.....My funk from the past couple of days is over. Yayyyy! I think I put on a couple of pounds though but I'm not going to change that here until it goes down again, heh! So I'm going to do really well with the food today. I didn't really go over on points the last couple of days, I just used the flex points and I guess I just can't get away with that or my weight goes up again. I still wrote everything down and counted the points though. Going strong for the Valentine's Day challenge! I'm going to see the doc today to get the diabetes thing figured out. I really think I can get by without the meds as long as I eat right and do the exercise. When I had the blood glucose fasting test done in Dec. I was just coming off of months with no exercise and bad eating so I think that's what effected the test. Hope I can convince her of that. After all it is really up to me.

Okay, people, I hope you're all out there doing it---the good eating and exercising, that is! Take care and have a great day! See ya tomorrow!

garlic on 01/28/2004:
Glad you're out of your funk. I was in a terrible funk for a full two weeks just after Christmas. Just the blues, big time. Glad it has passed for both of us. You gain weight from using your flex point? What a bummer!!!! Good for you, doing all that exercise. Doesn't it feel great? I just love how it makes me feel so it baffles me why I don't do it all the time. Crazy. Good luck with your doctor's appointment. Hopefully you can keep your blood sugar under control with diet and exercise. It's been done. You can do it!!!

garlic on 01/28/2004:
You'll get that "high" back again. I just know it!!!!!

malh on 01/28/2004:
Sounds like your attitude is very positive today. Great job. Let us know what the doctor says about the diabetes thing. Make the wise choices today. Mary

Hi, friends! It's a "struggling" day today for me. At least I avoided the urge to go to McD's for breakfast. Believe me, I had it all settled that that's what I was going to do this morning. But a lot of thinking got me through it. I didn't exercise this morning though and probably won't today either, same as yesterday. Then I will start fresh tomorrow. I'm just going through a hard time right now but it will be over soon, I think. Nothing exactly I can put my finger on, just hormones, I guess.

I hope you are all doing better than I am. At least the sun is shining here today. I'm still counting my points and writing everything down and that helps. I didn't even go to the WW meeting this morning, I just didn't feel like it. Bad Soonie! Didn't weigh myself this morning either but it is probably up some. I've been using the flex points but at least I haven't been going over that. So you all take care and I'll see ya tomorrow.

malh on 01/27/2004:
Great choice on avoiding McD's. I get that way sometimes and hormones can play a major role in our thinking. Sounds like you have in in control tho, keep that up and this will pass...

Happy Monday! No exercise so far. Yesterday I did finally ride the bike for 30 minutes, almost 7.5 miles. Today I just feel real draggy and not very ambitious. Guess I'm feeling like that a lot lately, huh? Could be because of all the sleep I've been getting, maybe I should try to cut back on that. Yawn, I feel like a nap right now!

I used up 5 more flex points yesterday, for a total of 30 points for the day. It was just a really hungry day. You know weekends! But I did go down that .8 of a pound so I guess it's okay. Sometimes it seems that when I eat a little more, I end up losing. It's been more than 3 weeks now without any fast food so I guess that's a good thing too. I think about it sometimes but then I think about how much I want to lose this weight. The losing weight wins every time! I'm really determined to lose it. I'm so tired of being fat and unhealthy. I'm hoping if I lose a lot of weight, I will be able to go without all the blood pressure meds and cholesterol meds. That would be great!

Okay, go out there and have a great day. I'll see ya tomorrow.
