Big to do at work yesterday. Christmas Party all the retirees come in and eat. So many people in such a little space makes for a warm area. Hot even. Very uncomfortable. And then a retiree who started before I was born trapped me and I couldn't get away, I had to listen and small talk. So out of my comfort zone. DH made an appearance but left quickly after eating. He is so uncomfortable around my work people.

I get home and was still full from the party food, so I ate a bit of left over cheese ball and a few meatballs for dinner. DH and I wrapped some Christmas presents, maybe will finish tonight. Sent four postcards out.

We did finish the inventory at work, so now all of my attention will go to the safety audit which is due next.

B: toast, peanut butter, iced vanilla latte

L: cheese pizza; ham

S: yogurt, blackberries

D: TBD not sure. I'm afraid to text DH and ask, he may still be sleeping.

Have a great night. IP

Company parties are usually uncomfortable for me too...those years are over for us...That's behind you now thankfully.

I feel you. I hate parties too. And people. And hot rooms. I'd have been crawling the walls. Love Habitat for Humanity, hate church for the same reasons.

I also wonder why there is never a craft table for grownups at these things? Keep your hands busy so your brain isn't racing around like a trapped cat?

OMG that is the best idea ever!! I will have to look in to this.

Saw on another post you have too much frozen chicken. If you have a ton of frozen chicken and any of it is boneless / skinless... try making hot wing dip! Yummy and easy in the slow cooker. Goes well with celery and hot paleo biscuits.

I have been keeping busy.

DH and I finally got our Christmas Tree up, so now we just have to wrap all the presents, I will get that started tonight.

I still haven't heard if my son is driving up or not, if he does I will have more to do. I always put that saran wrap ball together with snacks and money, its a great game and everyone loves it... but if he doesn't, I will have mail his and his wife's gifts to them.

So I called and talked to my telehealth worker today and along with the daily calls, I will get to go into the clinic on Monday and have a class from 11:00-noon, this starts January 8. Also I signed DH and I up for a biggest loser challege that is being organized in the next town over. It runs until March 31st. That cost us $35 a piece...a Christmas present. So I'm very excited to get this all started and hopefully one of the things will kick in and I can benefit with the motivation.

With all that being said, I haven't ate very good for anything.

I will start tracking again tomorrow...Now I have just got to go talk to my boss and ask him if I can leave every Monday for a few hours.

Hope you are all getting ready or are ready for the holidays.

OH people....I would say what else can happen in my life, but I'm afraid to even wonder. So a few things that hinder my weight loss journey...I was stupid enough to order clothes from the internet. I was being liberal and ordered a 3X because I'm running around a 2X or 1X, yeah, that didn't work. Everything I ordered is too small. This must be 3X for Asian sized people because I couldn't wear any of it...so, so depressing!

And then, I left work early because I had minor stomach issues and didn't want to sit at work and run back and forth to the toilet so I went home. Once home I slept. When I woke up I realized I didn't have my phone and looked and looked. Finally I decided to call my office and see if I left it on my desk - not that I would go back and get it, I just wanted to be sure I didn't lose it. So I pick up DH's phone and it is open to messenger. I just happen to notice 'good morning princess" WTH...this irritates me, so I read on and the girl he is talking to is telling him all about her horrible marriage, her suicidal tendacies and woe is me. So I am almost furious, but I just call my office, and yes my phone is there, so I thank them and hang up.

As I am sitting there looking out the window, I just feel so crushed, sad. I guess it shows on my face because DH asks what is wrong. I tell him nothing, because I'm just not ready to deal with this. We eat dinner and he says, you look sad. Well gee thanks!!

And so it goes, we eat, sit there for about an hour and half, he is messing around with his phone and I am watching TV and doing a crossword puzzle, then the time comes and he goes to bed.

We have food that is going bad so I decide to bake some things. We had a container of croissants that was starting to mold, so I crumbled them up and made a bacon and egg quiche for lunch and then I made a lemon, blueberry cheesecake bread pudding thing. Of course it all turned out delicious and I didn't throw the croissants out.

While I was waiting on the oven to finish, I picked up DH's phone again and this particular conversation with this person was gone. It was just not on his phone anymore, so he knew. and/or was trying to cover something up.

Anyway, he goes to work and because I took a nap I stayed up and watched the movie Shooter and didn't go to bed until 2:00 a.m. I was contemplating life.

So this morning, I sent DH an email:

‚ÄčI thought long and hard before sending this email...

Why do you suppose I looked sad, what do you think would have made me sad all of a sudden? I could have said something then, but I just wasn't in a position to deal with all the bullsh1t, I would have heard.

First thing is, I don't want you to feel I was checking up on you or spying. I just went to use your phone to call my office, my work, and your messenger was open.

Second thing is, I don't care who you talk to using messenger. What bothers me is you feel you need to call someone princess.

Thirdly, it IS NOT your job to make anyone else feel better, so why you choose to use this terminology just blows my mind, especially with all the sexual inappropriateness going on in the world, oh yeah, and for the small fact that you are married!

Fourthly, if you feel you need to be with your princess, then hit the road. If your princess provides you the emotional support that you need, than I encourage you to go and be with her.

Lastly, I'm not going to play games, if you want to go...go, don't hang around just because you feel I need you, because buddy, I have and can take care of myself, I have done it before and will have no problem doing it again, and

I will not put up with it, I am too old to be going through this sh*t again, and this time, I will f*ck someone up!

End it with your princess or get the f*ck out of my life! And if this term of endearment ever escapes your mouth when you talk to me ever and I mean ever... I will f*cking punch in the face.

That is all!
DH shows up at my work and swears he has done nothing wrong. Oh OK, so you go around and call everyone Princess? WTFE!!
I hate men they all suck!
This...this is my life, maybe I over react, but I refuse to go through the sneaking around and lying crap again, that is what my first marriage was all about and I'm just too old for this BS.
And you lucky people get to read all about it, because journaling is good for the soul!
And I'm sick of Christmas music all ready and it as been on for 30 minutes.
Have a great night and I will talk more about dieting tomorrow or whenever I can function properly again.

Hugs. That would crush me too. Good on you for being willing to go it alone instead of trying to "win him back"... which def isn't winning. You do so much for him and his kids. You've always been very strong. Big hugs.

bearcountrygg on 12/14/2017:
Men are such IDIOTS!!!!! I just so want to give you a hug right now!!!! He needs to stay out of her horrible marriage, her suicidal tendencies and her life in general...She is trying to get her hooks into him to rescue her and he wants to save the Princess....UGHHHHH...I want to strangle him myself! This so reminds me of a friends husband who after 23 years, and 3 kids...got involved with a coworker because they had something in common ( both of their mothers died of cancer)....well whop de do!! His answer was that he wanted both of them, they divorced. He married the other woman who kept trying to send him back to his first wife... Well...I'm on your side....sounds like you scared him...hope he's home shaking in his boots right now. Hope you can still have a good day. Write all you want here...you need to unload.

biscottibody59 on 12/15/2017:
A hug from me to you:-)

Ugh--"princess" is a bit too far I think. I don't know if you can believe anything that may come out of his mouth. If he and you decide to stay together, please get some counseling.

You've invested and given so much of yourself (the girl for one) and it would be nice to have a REAL commitment from him to proceed. Otherwise you're right-on that you can go it alone!

Take good care of yourself! Hope you get some time to soothe yourself!

ps The good thing is you have your job/income to walk away with. Do you get VA disability by chance? I meant to ask you when you had that episode at the store, but I've been so bad about commenting (much less posting).

I have a relative and a friend--both female--who have some form of their VA disability because of the effects of exposure to oil fires, incinerating contaminated waste/clothing, etc with no protective gear during the first Gulf War.

innerpeace on 12/18/2017:
Thanks. No, don't get disability. You need a freakin' PHD to apply and get approved anymore. I just had a physical when I left active duty and they deemed my injuries and claims as 0%, so I get VA care, but no disability, they said I could work.

I DH and I had a deep conversation and I did believe him when he said, he was just being nice. He is too nice for his own good. I had to tell him how lonely, mistreated women pray on nice guys like him.

I told him it's not his duty to make any other woman feel ok with her situation, that if he was calling anyone besides his wife, daughter or sister princess this was a big problem for me. He understood where I was coming from. So I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. And trust me when I say, I know for a fact he isn't cheating on me. I was just worried about the emotional stuff, but honestly I think he gets it.

Donkey on 12/16/2017:
I'm so sorry :-( I hope you and your husband can work through this. To repeat what Biscotti said, Be sure to take care of yourself in this time of pain. (((hugs)))

Struggling here! I even lied putting my weight into the telehealth call. I asked for my case manager to call me, I will see about going in once a week to a meeting. I just suck!

Saturday we were at Sam's and there was a rather large woman there who was having trouble walking. I asked my DH if I waddled, he told me NO. Then I said, I cannot let myself go like that, I will fail and start over 100 or more times, but I will never give up on myself...I said as I was eating pizza.

We got home and I finished making the Char Sui pork that turned out fabulously, rice and cauliflower. It was pretty good. I did not log calories.

We had the girl's birthday and she was happy. One of her gifts was tickets to see Disney on Ice. We drove to Youngstown on Sunday, I hope she enjoyed it, but I someone came away with the impression, she may be too old for this now. We stopped at a Magic Tree restaurant and I had chicken fingers cooked in waffle batter and mashed sweet potatoes. This was pretty good, we also shared a big pretzel and DH even bought one to take home and cook later. Maybe he will forget about it.

When we got home it was almost 5:00, so we ate the roast that was in the crock pot and got the girl ready to go home, she left right at 6:00. DH went to bed and I sat...well and kinda did the laundry.

I waste so much time doing nothing.

Again, tomorrow is another day and I will be back....

Hang in there....when the time is right it will all click....When we are ready to do it we will....I get the fear of waddling and falling...and YOU DO NOT SUCK!!!! My legs are swollen ( lymphedema, my Mother had it too)...and sometimes I watch the program called my 600 pound life just to remind me what will happen if I don't get it under control...and they all have lymphedema.....and open wounds etc....I watch it to scare myself...I once reported something less than my Weight watcher diary...but realized that I was only cheating myself and stopped that. You will do better.

horn_of_plenty on 12/12/2017:
maybe the telehealth thing is not worth it to you....maybe there's a better option??

Issues at work...seriously though some people just suck! I can't even call an invite retirees to the Christmas luncheon correctly...because some people nit pick so freakin' much.

How can property be so misplaced in a year? oMG searching for some things that can't be found. Thank you for putting up my shelf, but I still need the things I asked you to find!!! Just because you put that shelf up, doesn't mean I quit looking for the missing property. Dummy! Nice try though!

DH and I wrapped the girl's birthday presents last night, he picked up her cookies this morning and got the baloons filled, so now, I will decorate tonight after she goes to bed. We will do her birthday in the morning and go grocery shopping. I will do laundry on tomorrow instead of Sunday because we are going to Youngstown for the Disney on Ice. I hope it doesn't snow too much...oh wait, that didn't happen.

I was able to get the Taylor Swift tickets also. Probably paid too much, but it's for Christmas, and I will have them paid off before the actual concert, so I am ok with this.

Wednesday: Hotdogs and chili

Thursday: salmon and green beans

Friday: I don't know what we will eat tonight - maybe DH will figure something out after he gets the girl.

Enjoy the weekend! IP

We may also get some snow. Not much, like 1-3 inches they are predicting!

My friend Ricky and I are also heading out to do something nice tomorrow with another girlfriend of mine, her name is Beth.

We are seeing the Nutcracker in Brooklyn (NYC). It should be great as i've never seen the entire Ballet. It's being performed by the Moscow Ballet. I am super excited bc it's in a theater called the Kings Theatre which has been redesigned recently (or rather the word is refurbished) and it looks beautiful, like a KING's Theater, like royalty. I will take photos!

I wish the girlie a VERY happy birthday!!! and I hope you really enjoy Disney on Ice! I always don't think to go - i feel too many kids will be in the audience and it's too kiddie? But prob good for you all?

I'm just thinking how i love shows...never i dont think have i watched an ice show...i bet it is wonderful, i do love the olympics, that is!

I left work early Friday and went home and took a nap. DH and I spent a lot of time shopping and looking over the weekend. We may be almost finished with shopping. But it never fails. I think I'm finished but I'll go to another store and find something different that I think someone else needs. We spend way too much at Christmastime.

I ordered stuff from Amazon and thinking it was on its way for the girl's birthday this weekend, but come to find out my order was canceled because my selection was out of stock...ok well why did it let me order it, and why cancel it? why not just ship it when you have it back in stock. Anyway, spent most of the evening last night looking for something similar that was canceled from Amazon. Yeah...not too impressed with Amazon this year. And then I get an email from Amazon telling me another order is being delayed and it arrives the very next day???

Weight is holding steady, haven't lost, but haven't gained...yet, because I have been eating way too many sweet things.

Sent a box of stuff to my mother for Christmas, and she tell me our family friend died. He was about five years older than I was, went to California to visit his family and died. I am concerned for my mother because he lived with her and helped her out around the house. He will be missed.

Monday night DH and I made a brussel sprout, mushroom fetticcini which was pretty good.

Tuesday night we had turkey burgers and orange cauliflower - it was tempura battered cauliflower and was delicious.

Tonight if DH gets it together we should have a turkey chili. The girl isn't a fan of turkey so we can't mention what kind of meat it is.

Tomorrow we are having a breakfast at work to kick off the CFC campaign that was postponed due to the hurricanes.

Still working on the safety audit and inventory, it is all done in slow little batches..

We got the girl Disney on Ice tickets for her birthday and will be driving to Youngstown on Sunday and then I think I may have a chance to get the Taylor Switf tickets for Christmas, if the presale I entered goes through.

Have a great evening and despite being crazy and frazzled, today is a good day. IP

Condolences to your family on the loss of your friend....especially sad for your Mom. I've seen the orange cauliflower , does it taste different than the white one? We used to go through the Christmas shopping frenzy but over the years since we are all spread out now...we send checks....not as festive but it sure is a lot easier....hope you can find the things you still need.

horn_of_plenty on 12/08/2017:
Try to wean off the sweets slowly. It takes a few days to do that because the body gets used to the intake.

However, lately and recently and even thru the last year, i allow myself some sweets, especially like after a meal or snacking small with a snack. Moderation seems easier than putting a complete stop to eating them.

Disney on ice sounds awesome, Taylor Swift even more awesome. For myself, i'm looking to do more volunteer / free things this year. Whether it be street fairs or lower priced things - this year for me is about saving / taking classes in both things i like and things i actually don't (taking an estimating course my father recommended, but also taking some work days off around the time of some of the classes to lighten my load on those days!)

Got home and DH had rotisserie chicken smelling up the house, it was so good and we had green beans. Afterwards DH and I go to get a few more items I needed for the work Christmas tree, me and my big ideas.But with moaning and groaning from a few helpers we finally did get it up.

It's funny how I can ask people for help and suggestions and I get NONE. But when my tree is up I get all kinds of suggestions and would've, could've, should'ves to make it look better. Whatever...people suck! I think it's beautiful.

When we were leaving the store, DH started shaking and we had to buy him some candy to get home. Low sugar...we had just ate dinner, but I guess there wasn't enough of what he needed. This is always scary to me.

I had some candy too, pepermint bark,, I told DH this is the last time, we are getting back on the wagon tomorrow. I didn't realize how much work menu planning was until I didn't do it this last week. But I already have it to go for tomorrow.

I am leaving early tomorrow and taking Monday off, just because I have some time to use and maybe I will finish all my Christmas shopping.

Tonight we have decided to eat at Chipoltle before hopping back on the wagon. I am looking forward to this, as it has been forever, since we've eaten there.

Hoping you all have a great night! IP

Hi there, InnerP!

Great job with the tree, it has a nice red color throughout. Nice hue. It would have been good if you got help...if they make suggestions, you can tell them feel free to change anything ;) lol.... i am sure they will NOT.

I hope you get a lot of your Christmas shopping done with weekend! Mine was productive, too! Lately, i'm starting to throw away old clothes out of closets, making more room and making it easier to actually see what i have ! I plan to throw out a lot of old clothes between now and the New Year, actually! It's clothes that haven't been worn, that just clog up my closets. And also when i do this, I find out what I actually have - like I want to wear more sweaters & now i am finding them!

Back to you....Chipotle sounds good! Have a happy Monday, IP!

Keep digging myself deeper in a hole at work. Seriously...I can only do so much. Today though, I have tons to do, but just couldn't figure out where to start, so nothing really got done, and then they want me to decorate a Christmas tree, and do inventory and update safety books and do my actual job. I told dumb people at work i would like to do something different with the Christmas tree, and now....I'm expected to do it, only I don't have time. I might do some tomorrow.

DH properly put together the grilled chikcen and brocolli and alfredo sauce last night. They girl was over and was showing off $50 she got from her mother...for her birthday that isn't until the 10th. I ask why she had it already, she said it was given to her so her mother wouldn't spend it. And then about 6:30 we get a text asking if they could pick her up early and go to the Five and Below store...well OK, I mean, why can't you go when you have her the other five freakin' days of the week. She sick sack of sh!t! It just doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever! So then I texted DH who was sitting right there beside me and I said...well I hope she doesn't pick up the same things we did for her birthday. He just laughed.

The food was good, company not so much.

I asked DH to come up with something for dinner, I told him I will resume menu making on the 1st. He told me he threw out the rest of the Thanksgiving leftovers....what a waste.

My mood is dquivilent to a snowy day

Have a great night IP

We had salad and grilled chicken last night for dinner. no picture, but it was good.

So I have been fighting with a stupid company the last three weeks. Anyway, I was dumb enough to click on a survey, which I thought at the time was from CVS marketing. It says, answer these few questions for a $50 gift card!!! BIG MISTAKE! Oh, so I answered the few questions about how many times do I shop at their store, do I fill perscriptions and stuff like that. And then at the end, it says, congratulations you have $50 to spend, you can select from these products, which ranged from diet pills, magazines, health and fitness products and all you have to do is pay shipping and handling. OK. so I select my products, which are free, and then I pay $9.97 for shipping and handiling.

So my surprise when I see a charge for $29.99 on my credit card.  WTF??? So I call and the cusotmer service representative tells me I paid for a subscription, oh no I didn't, I don't want the subscrption, please cancel it. So they canceleed it...but I did not get my $29.99 back, I just paid for the first month and then it will cancel. Again WTF!!! Already mad. So imagine my surprise when I have another charge for $87.99, this really pisses me off. So I call back and tell them, I did not authorize a charge to my credit card, I did not receive any merchandise, nor did I order anything. I demanded that they reimburse my card. And still they try to sell me crap. I was furious and cussed and called the man everything I could think of...He told me I should be professional. BE professional??? What the hell? If your scamming @ss company was professional I wouldn't be making this phone call. Anyway, I got that $87.99 back - reimbursed to my card.

SO last night another charge for $89.99 WTF. Again with the arguing and name calling - I did not order anything, I told them they need to delete my account, if another charge shows up on my credit card, they would be hearing from my lawyer. OMG.

I then sent CVS a letter today demanding they cut all ties with this survey company who is scamming their customers. What a freaking crock of crap they have going on. I then called my bank and cancelled my credit card. J@ckholes!!

We have the girl tonight - menu should be left over grilled chicken and brocolli - hopefully DH gets around and puts it together.

He has been running around for me today getting Steve's nails clipped and shopping for my mother's Christmas present.

Made an error at work - I forgot to submit a few bills for payment - will show up as late. Not happy! must have been a pretty bad day.

So here's to better days - I was able to put on and wear my wedding rings today. First time in a few years! I did end up taking of the engagement ring because wearing both was still a little tight, but I could wear the wedding band.


Have a great evening! IP

I"m amazed at how fast the day goes when I'm not working.

I left work early on Wednesday. DH and the girl picked up KFC. I had chicken fingers and biscuits.

Thursday DH and I had a few things; cabbage and bacon, honey baked turkey. We cooked all day though. I made cranberry salad, watergate salad and dressing. DH made corn casserole and cabbage and bacon. We only ate a few of what we cooked.

Friday DH and I went to Sandusky to get my iced coffee and was so disappointed. They were out. We then tried to go to another store and we couldn't even find a parking place. Once we did, there were no carts and people were in line all the way through the store, it was difficult to look and then we would have spent hours in line, so we left. It was a bust! A wasted trip. We did get the girl. And ate some of the things we cooked on Thursday. DH and I vacuumed the leaves out of the yard and piled about twelve grass catchers full out to the curb; luckily they were picked up on Saturday so they didn't blow all over the place.

Saturday we tried to go shopping again. The girl had to have her eyebrows waxed and we stopped by Bath and Body Works for some presents. We went to a few other stores and picked up some more gifts. We took DH home and then the girl and I went to Wal-mart and the library. I made her read to me for a while. I just don't thnk she is going to get her book read this quarter. Either it is too hard or she just isn't interested.

Sunday I did the laundry and we all just sat around the house, which in itself was satisfying in itself. We ate left overs all weekend. And I am please I only gained a pound.

Monday - the joy of having a job. DH was offered a job but hasn't decided on whether or not he will take it, he is waiting on one more business; hoping they extend an offer as well. Looking for new insurance...is awful! I cyber shopped today - hopefully the girl is all finished for her birthday. We do have most of the Christmas shopping done as well. I think I still need a few things for my son. DH is nosy and found out all his gifts.

Still haven't heard if my son is coming up from Georgia, his plans will make my plans.

Have a great evening!


Progress as of today: 17.9 lbs lost so far, only 93.7 lbs to go!

Can she switch her book? I'm currently just starting (still at the beginning under page 20) of a book i don't love and whenever my requested books come into the library, i'll switch it out & not finish it. It's just NOT GOOD. As a teen or preteen, she may have to read it for school - but it's nice, if she has the opportunity, to read about what is enjoyable for her to read about. If the opportunity permits.

Sounds like you made some shopping attempts during the time off. In the past I have, this time I really concentrated on relaxing. And boy did it suit me :)

Either way, it sounds like you had some lovely days off...now back to work :) You cot things done and you were active. God for you during the days off...it doesn't sound like you were too rushed, thankfully.

She probably could have changed, but she selected it in beginning of November. She would rather play on her iphone than read. Sunday I had her reading for 20 minutes and then listening and/or playing for 20 minutes.
