Good morning, everyone! The sun is shining and it's 75 already. Not even 10:00 here yet. I've got a busy day ahead today. That's always good, I stay out of the kitchen then. DH and I had our morning walk this morning, about 45 minutes, and I added some jogging and really fast walking too, every other block. That was fun. Later I will do the treadmill again. Can't do too much, ya know! My throat is really sore this morning though but otherwise I feel good. Just try to drink lots of water, I guess.

Yesterday was a great day, I need to string a bunch of those together though. I WILL, I WILL!! When I look back on all the junk I ate over the weekend, I feel like I didn't even really enjoy it and it wasn't really all that good either. So if I just keep that in mind, maybe I won't do that again. I didn't get through all your entries yesterday so I will try to get caught up later today. First I'm going to the tanning place to get started on my tan, don't want to get a burn in Hawaii. Then I have to return some things to K-Mart. I'm going to miss that store when it's gone, boo hoo! I buy a lot of clothes there, ya know. Then I'll probably go to Wally World, hehe, (Wal-Mart) to pick up a prescription and some things, then what I don't get there, I need to get at the grocery store. I love this Wal-Mart here, it's a Super-Wal-Mart, so they have just about everything.

I found a great store yesterday. It's a second-hand clothing store. I spent almost 2 hours there yesterday!! I found a Kathy Lee skirt that looked like new, size 12, for only $3.99, one dressy blouse for $5.99, and 2 other pretty tops for only $3.99 each. I tell you, they looked almost new too. I was in heaven, hehe. I think I'll be taking my old stuff there too, I can get money or credit for them. What fun!

Okay, gotta go. The day is waiting! Have a good WOE day (way of eating), everyone! Buh-bye!

pinkuspettuty on 04/03/2002:
Sounds like a full day. I know what you mean. That mindless eating and then you think...did I even stop and taste it? Have fun shopping....we have sore throuats around here, too. takecare, Pink

MichelleP on 04/03/2002:

Sounds like you are doing great! I had been thinking of going to a local 2nd hand store, I need new size clothes terribly, but dont want to spend to much till I am the size I plan to be and stay at LOL! Take care and have a wonderful day!

Thanks for the comments to me especially how us guys calling over 60 call ourselves old goats, I prefer to be just called geezer. You know something I've never been inside a Wal-Mart, I think I'm gonna try going to one.

I tried to get in here to make an entry this morning but couldn't so here I am now. Let's just say the last few days were not good, in the WOE (way of eating) sense. But I'm not giving up yet and I had a really good day today. 22 points, >100 oz of water, a 50 minute walk with dh this morning and 30 more minutes of walking on the treadmill before dinner. I took my weight out of here until Monday, I don't even want to know what it is right now. So I will start weighing every Monday and no weighing in between. I've only got 34 days until the Hawaii trip (I think). So I'm just going to do the best I can before then. I got the new Fitness magazine today---on the cover it says "Get a Bikini Body in 28 Days"---where? in the mail? Hahaha! So, you see, there's still hope!

Okay, going to go get caught up with all of you here. Reading your entries always helps get me back on track. Take care, everyone!

shellybelly on 04/02/2002:
Great job with your points and exercise. You are going to have the greatest time in Hawaii. Have a good night! :)

Good morning, everyone! Aaaaah! I forgot to weigh this morning! I know, you all think I'm too obsessed with the scale monster, right? I know I did good yesterday so it couldn't have been bad. So we'll see what it says tomorrow.

Already did 3 miles on the treadmill. I know I won't be able to do any exercise later like I did yesterday, going to church this evening, so I thought I'd get in enough this morning. Going to do some walking at the mall this afternoon too, not much, just need to return a couple of blouses. And, of course, do some more looking around. I've been here a year now and still haven't covered that whole mall, it's huge! I did have a big breakfast this morning--8 points--so I'll just have a small lunch, probably one of those Oasis bars, one seemed to keep me full for hours the other day. Then a light dinner before church. Maybe a snack after I get home tonight if I need it. So a busy day today.

Yesterday--24 points, >100 oz of water and 4 miles of walking on the treadmill. I walked 2 miles in the morning and 2 more before dinner. I started walking on the treadmill at 5pm and before I had walked for a mile, I started feeling kinda funny and weak and realized I hadn't eaten anything for 4 hours. So I took a break, ate some strawberries and sliced banana and rested awhile. Then continued for another mile and was fine. Guess my blood sugar was just too low from not eating. I was trying to keep the points lower yesterday but still ended up with 24, sheesh! Oh, well.

I'm being really good because I know I'm going to eat more on Sunday. Mom is making a ham and deviled eggs, I'm making potato salad and beans, one sister is making a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and the other sister is making dutch apple pie. And I plan on having some of everything. Then go back to the plan, haha. I must keep in mind the Hawaii trip, that keeps me in line.

So I have a busy weekend and may not get here to make an entry. I still need to get caught up with you all too. Haven't been able to read much this week. I hope you're all doing good. Take care and have a great day. Buh-bye! And Happy Easter!

CharlieAngel on 03/29/2002:
Just use some banked points for the Easter Dinner if you can! And all that exercise! You might not have lost weight on the scale but I bet you gained muscle!! You are doing so awesome. Keep it up! Have a wonderful Easter with your family! Sounds like fun! You ought to give your sister that is making the chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting that recipe I posted the other day. It is a chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting but only 4 points per serving! Less guilt! Love, Charlotte

pastagal on 03/29/2002:
Hi soonie,,,your day sunday sounds like its going to be nice,,just relax and enjoy our day and eat normal,,just keep your portions small and i will bet you will do just fine,,i am taking sunday off from counting points,but i am going to keep my portions small,,and eat lots of salsa and salad and veggies,,but i am not forbidding myself anything,,hey its Easter,and i know we can eat and still do just fine,,,,have a wonderful weekend ok;}}

Okay, I expected to either stay the same or go up a pound. I was good yesterday--26 points, a little high but I figured with the exercise on the treadmill and at the mall, it would be okay--WRONG! So today I'm going to eat really low points, I can do that. So far I did 2 miles on the treadmill and had 3 points for breakfast. And 40 oz of water so far. And I'm going to walk another 2 miles before dinner. And I've got lots to keep me busy too. I'm going to get busy on my bedroom closet and organize my clothes. Some need to be stored away, some I need to get rid of. So that should take a few hours, haha.

I slept through the night okay, no sounds to wake me up. I was thinking--so what if hubby isn't here at night, if someone were breaking in, he wouldn't hear them anyway, hehe. That man can sleep through anything! So really it's not much different than when he IS here. And I have the security system and my gun so no problem. So I slept really good all night, didn't even get up to go to the bathroom!! Maybe that's why I weighed more, haha.

Okay, I'm going to get real busy and stay out of the kitchen except to get more water. Oh, for anyone who wants to know about the Oasis bars, I bought them at Wal-Mart for 97 cents a piece. They are so good. I bought 6 of them yesterday but I'm going to try not to have any today, they're 4 points a piece. I bought lots of low point things yesterday so that's what I'm going to have today. I need to go out for some more salad though, I buy the kind in bags, I'm lazy, ya know. I add a few pieces of raw broccoli and some grape tomatoes and voila! great salad. And I'm loving the raspberry vinaigrette salad dressing, mmmmmm! Okay, gotta go. Take care and have a great day!

pastagal on 03/28/2002:
Sounds like your enjoying your time alone,i know what you mean about hubby's sleeping and nothing wakes them,mine is the same way,,when our children were growing up,and they started dating,i stayed awake till they came home,he Never knew when or if they returned safe,lol,he left that up to me so he could get a good nights sleep,,:} well you have a wonderful day cleaning and reorganizing your closets ok,sounds like something i need to do real soon to:} take care soonie,oh did ya notice,,Muggers is back:}

MichelleP on 03/28/2002:

Those bars sound good, may have to try one! Cant beat the price! Take care and have a great day!

kallie23 on 03/28/2002:
You sound like your doing good getting back on track..LOL Staying out of the kitchen doesn't quite do it for me!! My brain works against me no matter what room I'm in. If I have sweets in the house...low calorie or not...I can't get them out of my head!! It's horrible!! So I just don't bring any in the house. Sometimes I even buy my food a meal at a time. I live right across the street from a grocery store.

Good morning, everyone! Or afternoon for some of you. It's 10:30 here. It's 75 already with the sun shining so nicely. Hubby and I had our walk this morning, about 40 minutes worth. I had a good day yesterday, lost that pesky half pound. Besides the morning walk yesterday, I did half an hour of walking on the treadmill before dinner. So I had 28 points, I figured I could with all the exercise. And it worked, haha. The hubs just left to go stay with my brother in Phoenix for a few days, they're going to do some fishing and BIL bonding, hehe. Since we moved out here, away from his friends, I'm always glad to see the hubby get together with guys to do what he likes to do. I don't really care for fishing anymore, I'd rather do something else. So I'm completely okay with it. I don't really enjoy the nights alone but the days are great. My only problem is trying not to "party" while being alone. You know what that means--lots of junk food! I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT!! With all my friends here behind me and encouraging me, I can't possibly fail, right? And just the thought of gaining it back AGAIN is enough to scare me into staying "straight"! I WILL BE STRONG!! I'm doing so well now (if I do say so myself) I really don't want to mess it up. And there's only 40 days left to HAWAII!! I plan on having a ball and I don't want to have to squeeze into too tight clothes, ya know? I hate that "squeezed" waist line feeling! I want to be completely comfortable in my clothes. And be able to wear a bathing suit. Hmmm, I think I'll go do some shopping this afternoon, hahaha.

Okay, must get on with my day. Just me and the cat, hehe. I love it. No man to clean up after. I think he's staying till Saturday or Sunday morning, whoopee! Take care, everybody, and have a great day! PS--where's Maria?! If you're out there, girl, I hope everything's okay. Check in, okay? And you too, Muggs! Love ya's!

pastagal on 03/27/2002:
Thats weird you should ask where is Maria and Muggers,,,i was thinking about both of them this morning also,,how weird huh,,,,i know maria is probley just really busy with her life,,she will come back:} and Muggers to,,with her new job,new place she is living and making new friends,,,she has her hands full,,,and you my dear,your sounding so great these days,,your Hawaii trip is making me want to plan mine :{ but we have decided to put it off till next yr,we were going to go this May for our 30th wedding ann,,,but with things as they are here i have decided to put it on hold till next yr at this time,,and besides,,,i really want to be able to wear a two peice suit for the first time in about 25 yrs,so thats another one of my goals i am working toward,and your doing great,,lost another 1/2 lb,,keep drinking lots of water and that exersise and eat what you want soonie,,just keep those portions small and eat alot of good stuff but don't deprive yourself of the other stuff and that way you won't have those moments of wanting to eat everything in site:} I truely enjoy your entries and i envy you for having some quiet time to yourself right now,but i also am the same way as you,,the days i love but the nights alone i don't like anymore like i use to,,well have a wonderful day and remember to stay on track:}}

MichelleP on 03/27/2002:

Find 5 good websites about weight loss, good healthy eating, things like that.. share them with your friends here, that way you wont have time to eat, and think of all the people you will be helping !!!!

Happy losing!

I'm me-e-e-lting!! Another pound bites the dust! Yippee! I know, I know, it's all weight I lost before but, heck, I like it anyway, hehe. And probably water weight too but I'll take it. I thought sure today I wouldn't have a loss, that's how it ususlly goes when you weigh every day. And I had another great day yesterday too. Only 20 points. Never did get in the exercise but I did a lot of shopping so that counts, I said so!

This morning, after a better night's sleep, the hubs and I set out for a nice morning walk. We walked for 45 minutes and it was great. About 55 degrees with the sun shining. So I'm off to a good start for the day.

Oh, I weighed in at the WW meeting yesterday---their scale said I was DOWN 1.2 from last month. I was really surprised! I still had to pay the $12.00 since I'm still above my goal weight. Next month... The meeting was great, this woman who leads is a motivational speaker who goes all over the country to give talks. She lost 42 pounds and has kept it off for over 31 years. Anyways, it was all about STRESS and what to do with it. Didn't I just talk about that the other day?! So I really liked this meeting. CharlieAngel, one thing she said is to take a piece of toilet paper and write "mother-in-law" on it and flush it down the toilet, hahaha! Made me think of you.

Well, I've gotta go get busy now, things to do, I never run out of them. BTW, hubby and his 2 friends caught 212 fish yesterday!! Crappies, if you're into that sort of thing. Mmmmmmm! Take care, everybody, have a great day!

traya on 03/26/2002:
WoooooooooooHoooooooooo! Yeah for you! I like the stress exercise of writing and flushing. I might try that tonight (I may clog up the toilet!) :-)<br> Have a great day! Tammy :-)

pastagal on 03/26/2002:
Congrats on your loss,that is GREAT!! that is just what you needed to get you to feeling better about everything,keep it up ok,,and have a wonderful day,,,tell your hubby WTG and all those fish,:}

CharlieAngel on 03/26/2002:
Oh if only it were that easy!? But, hey it is definitely a thought! But what a waste of perfectly good toilet paper. I'm thinking of buying a punching bag for the garage and will visualize her head when I work out....how's that for unleashing my hostility. Seriously, though, I know that I gripe alot about MIL but I am really trying to be understanding of her needs. And as for you...well....wooohoooo for the loss! Before you know it you will be back to goal and maintaining. Keep up the good work....and tell your hubby that if he wants to send a few fish my way...dry ice in a styrofoam cooler and overnight express would work! Have a great day! Love Charlotte

Yippee!! The scale is going in the right direction again! This time I'm going to keep it going down. 42 days until Hawaii! I should be able to at least get below 150 by then, right? I'm feeling really good right now. I think I just went through a depressing period or something. I'm sure it had something to do with these hormones I'm taking so I'd better get talking with the doc about that. Anyways I'm doing great now. I had a great weekend! I stayed below my point limit, exercised and had plenty of water. And it always feels better to do that. The weather was so nice so the hubs and I walked for almost an hour both days. Well, today I didn't exercise *sigh* YET but I plan on getting some in later. I slept in this morning because, for one, I stayed up watching the Oscars last night. I had also had diet-Coke with dinner *dumb* with caffeine so I just couldn't get to sleep until after 1am. Then hubby was up at 2:30 to leave for fishing (I know, he's crazy) so I was up too. And at 4:30 a noise woke me up and I couldn't get back to sleep. I kept listening for someone breaking into the house. Thank goodness, we have the security alarm so I was able to get to sleep finally. Anyways, I decided to just sleep in, I never do that. I got up at 8:30, had breakfast and watched Regis & Kelly. So I'm here all day by myself but I have lots of plans. First I need to weigh in at Weight Watchers this afternoon, then I'm going to Sears, then the grocery store.

I must tell you about my "lightbulb" moment! I was thinking about why I have these binges and I think I've come up with an answer and a solution. You may have already figured this out for yourself, but it seems when I'm on a "diet", lacking for a better word, I'm very tense with the "counting all the points, trying to stay low, making sure I get enough exercise, enough water, you know the drill". I'm constantly thinking of this part of my life, sometimes overlooking the rest of it. Just so much STRESS! And I associate relaxing with junk food, go figure! So here's what I'm going to try---when I get that stressed feeling, needing to head for the kitchen, I will try to THINK FIRST, calm down, maybe try a little meditation, maybe even start doing the Yoga tape again sometimes. Or some calming music. Just taking a little "time-out". I think if I can remember to do this, I will be able to get through the bad times. Simple, right?! Where have I been all these months?! Well, we'll see how it works. And I've also been drinking lots of water during these times to fill me up, that seems to help too. And today I'm alone so that's usually my hard times but I think I have enough to keep busy and I'm sure I can get through it. And I'm really DETERMINED now too. So wish me luck.

Okay, gotta go dry my hair and get ready to go. Oh, I also wanted to tell you--I discovered a great tasting snack bar--Oasis, 4 points. I tried the White Chocolate Raspberry, it was DELICIOUS. I'm going to use these as my treat sometimes. Good for you and low points. Have a great day, everyone. Buh-bye.

pastagal on 03/25/2002:
AWw soonie your Hawaii trip sounds like a ton of fun,,i am so excited for you,,and yes you will get below the 150's i just know it,,,

I wanted to ask you,do you like v8 juice,i love it and it has in the past two weeks saved me so many times when i felt i wanted to eat something,i have been drinking alot of it and now its like my water,can't do without it,,

I hope you have a wonderful day today and your doing great,keep it up:}}

stellastarr on 03/25/2002:
Hey I like you "buh-bye" :) I remember that you used to always end your entries in a little voice saying: "Thank you for listening to me." It's a sweet thought, but I often wondered if you knew how valuable you are to all of us.... Each one adds so much and your entries are always wonderful. HAWAII !!!!!!! I had forgotten about that. This is the trip that you have known about since last summer, right? Gosh, time passes quickly. I am glad that you are feeling in control with this entry and that your numbers are moving in the direction of your will. See you tomorrow! And, have a great today, Soonie.

CharlieAngel on 03/25/2002:
Soonie: You are doing GREAT! We all have those momentary lapses. Just wanted to give you a couple of treats...have you tried the Blue Bunny ice cream bars....luscious and only 1 or 2 points. And then that wonderful fat free raspberry vinaigrette from Naturally Fresh...buy it at the grocery store in the produce section it comes in a mason like jar and is usually over by the Marie's dressings. It is 0 points per serving....I usually count it as 1 because I liberally apply. You will definitely be under 150 before Hawaii. I predict you will have the time of your life! Don't forget to share a moment of it with us who live vicariously through others. Have a wonderful day! Love, Charlotte

angel22 on 03/25/2002:
Hey! Congratulations on your loss! I am so glad that the scale iz moving in the desired direction for you! Keep up the good work! I know what you meant by alone time being the worst time, i alwayz used to have trouble being alone too becuz i would feel the need to eat. Now when i do i get out my temptation journal (the journal i write in when i am tempted to eat a lot) or i listen to music that reminds me of good times in the past. I hope you have a great week and stay motivated. Those oasis bars sound good, where can you find them? ~*angel*~

pastagal on 03/26/2002:
Hi soonie,,,as for the v8 juice,i drink alot of it throughout the day and i don't count it as 1 pt,,i drink alot of water and i am never swelled like i am retaining and losing ,so no i count it as 0 pts,,,its great to take the cravings away and make you feel full,especially if you drink it and then drink a big thing of water,,give it a try:}}

Up again, oh, well!! I'm doing lots better today though. Yesterday, not so good. I did just fine when we went out to TGI Friday's for lunch, only eating half the cobb salad with my own FF Italian dressing that I'd brought, but later in the afternoon, I just ate and ate and ate. Just things that were already in the house and diet-friendly but just too much! I think I have a handle on it all now, thank goodness. I took a nice walk with hubby this morning for about an hour and I've been keeping very busy all day with house work, so I'm doing really well with the food. Glad to hear from Stella again and I still miss Muggsy, where are you, Muggs? Hope you're all having a great weekend! Buh-bye!

angel22 on 03/23/2002:
HeY! Good work today! I'm glad that you're doing better. Have a great weekend and keep up the good work! I'm glad that you're not letting that small setback get you down! It's great that you are still working to reach your goal! Like i said, keep it up and i wish you good luck:)~*angel*~

Well, I'm going the wrong way again, darn it! Oh, well. How's everyone doing this fine morning? Another hot day here today, 89. I'm going out to K-Mart and Michael's and the bank, didn't get to that yesterday. Then the hubs and I are going for lunch to TGI Friday's, I'll be good, I promise. Then I have lots of laundry to do and the vaccuuming. Last night I did my bathroom and bedroom so I already have part of the cleaning out of the way. I'll tell ya, I was all ready to have a pig-out dinner since the dh was gone to BIL's house for the U of A basketball game (why do I do that?!). Anyways, I came here to check my comments after reading all your entries and found a great comment from MichelleP. What an incentive?! She said such nice things I couldn't possibly think of cheating! My thanks go out to her and all of you who do the commenting, it helps more than I can say. But you can see what I mean by what it did for me last night. I still ate more than I should have yesterday but it would have been a lot worse if I'd done as I'd planned. What's wrong with me?! I just can't seem to get with it here. I'm just going up and down all the time. My stomach is sticking out again!! I hate that! Maybe that will convince me to GET GOING! I can't afford to get fat again, I won't be able to wear all those clothes I've bought, hahaha. I feel like I'm drowning sometimes. Well, let's hope today is a better day. So far I've done 40 minutes of walking on the treadmill, added those inclines again that kick my butt! I've had my low-point breakfast, 5 points, that's low for me, haha. So I will be good at lunch out today and the rest of the day. There's just no excuse, right?

Okay, gotta get going now. Still not dressed. I haven't even had time to read much of the Bob Greene book yet. I'm so behind on everything. Maybe if I get caught up with everything, I'll feel better and more able to stick with the program. I hate being unorganized and behind with everything. So I have a busy day ahead. Wish me luck. Take care everybody and have a great day.

89! Oh I just love warm weather!! It's only 37 degrees here outside and soooo cold. I wish you could send some of that warm weather my way. Take it one day at a time and try planning what you'll have each day before you have it, then try and stick to that list. When you stray from the meal plan for the day, at least you'll be able to see where/what time of the day you're having trouble with. Then you can change your meal plan for the day to include a healthier "snack" during that time. Great going on that treadmill!!! Here's wishing you good luck and a great and successful dieting weekend:-)

I am glad my comments helped! I sure do understand getting upset not seeing the scale move. I have been so good and still I dont see the numbers moving, but somehow someone on here says something that keeps me going. I really need to challenge myself more. I am thinking of joining WW, or getting an on line buddy who can work with me. Not sure yet but I want this more than I can ever say. Please take care and have a wonderful weekend.

89! All I have to say is Grrrrrrrrrr!! It's high of 30 today by me! :( Oh well, it'll warm up soon enough. Don't worry about that scale, it'll be going the right way soon enough! Have a great day! :)

Okay, you win. I just dropped out of that "how many days in a row can I exercise" pact with you and because of THAT and other embarrassing backtrackings, I was hiding. Tell us about Bob Green's book, or what the thrust of it is according to what you saw on Oprah's show, won't you? I have missed you, Soonie. :)

Thanks fir yiour comment. It is so hard to stick with the program isnn't it? Even though we feel better when we do. It makes no sense really. Habilts are just so hard to break. Take care,don't be too hard on yourself. Pink

Good morning, everyone!! Well, I was kinda lazy this morning, no walk. But I did get an early start at Wal-Mart for groceries, no lines that early. Lot's of salad stuff too. And I may go out later to K-Mart and the bank so I'll be doing some moving. The weather is great here today--80 degrees already, going to 90. Windy! Maybe I'll get some cleaning done today too, open the windows and enjoy the warm day.

Well, yesterday I was doing great, then in the afternoon, I went a little wild. Not too bad, just not on the program. Had plenty of water and my morning exercise though. I've just got to get back down below 150, I hate this. It seems so much harder to accept when you were already down there and gained some back. Oh, well, I'm great at maintaining lately, hahaha.

Okay, gotta go. Hope you're all having a great day!

PLEASE SEND THAT WEATHER MY WAY lol! I am sure it is hard to get there but even when you put a few back on you didnt give up, to me that is AWESOME!!!! You are an true role model, thank you! Take care and have a great night!

You are doing great!! I can't "weight" to be in the 150's!! That will match my bowling average!! This is my first year bowling in over 10 years, so I'm only at a 157 right now! Would love to weigh that much!! LOL!

Have a great day!

You are doing great...water and exercising are the most important things. That's what will keep you in check! Big hug, Iti.
