    lstpaul ................-2.6..........1.11%
    Julie.....................-1.4.......
    Heather...............0.0...........0.0%
    Lauren.................-1.5.........0.88%
    momma...............+1.8........0%
    mstahl...................0............0%
    debra..................-0.7..........0.25%
    Allison................-0.8..........0.38%

    Getting on the scale only once a week has been amazing for me mentally. I don't see the dramatic day to day fluctuations and can then focus on the weekly drop and be happy with that! Heading for the beach tomorrow and am really excited. I was in change of helping the organizer shop for our food, so I know that there are a lot of healthy options because I got to pick them all! We're a fairly health-conscious bunch, but if it was in whole grain or reduced-sodium form, that's what we got. Heehee!

    Here's hoping the weather will be nice and warm for us.

    Checking in for Friday -

    Calories - under by 900
    Exercise - none
    Water - great
    Proud - I felt ill so I went back to bed at lunch time and slept until 11 PM. I'm proud I didn't start munching while I watched a little TV and waited up for Meghan.

    Saturday (was so BAD!)
    Calories - over by 2500 - seriously! Movie popcorn, french toast - it was a BAD day
    Exercise - none
    Water - great
    Proud - that I'm shrugging off todays horrible calories and planning on going light tomorrow. I only go to the movies a few times a year... it happens!

    Quick correction on the above post - I was actually over by about 1630 calories - still HORRIBLE but at least not two full days worth.

    Today I've started out well with a slice of sprouted whole grain bread, toasted, with some of Trader Joes Roasted Flaxseed Peanut butter (YUM) and a TB of Raspberry jam - LOVE! It's still high calorie for a breakfast but since I ate it a 11:30 it's more of my Mother's day brunch.

    On a side note - Meghan's mom (my step daughter) gave me an Amazon gift card for Mothers day - I thought that was very nice of her!

    And...

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL OF OUR MOMS!!! (And soon to be Moms!!!) :heart: :drinker: :heart: :flowerforyou: :love: :drinker: :heart: :smooched:

    Deb I'm sorry you had a bad weekend - I had a REALLY bad Saturday and I struggled today. It's like I just keep thinking of fun things to do that involve food - and all sorts of (lame) reasons to do them. Meghan went to prom this weekend so of course it seemed like the perfect time to have a nice meal and go out for breakfast etc... lame.:huh: :grumble:

    Checking in for today:
    Calories - barely!
    Exercise - Uhm weeded the garden?
    Water - awesome

    Proud: that I managed to NOT go out to eat today and that even with half a cup cake I stayed on course...

    Lildeb: hang in there - you know you didn't gain that much over the weekend so it is likely water and will come off quickly...
    Mstahl: We've got prom coming up this weekend, my daughter was SOOOO busy the last couple of weeks that she had no time to shop for a dress and finally had an hour last night to go to Herbergers - she got lucky and found a gorgeous dress that fits her and was on clearance for $40 (that's the best part!). Now I have to convince her that she has no choice about bringing her boyfriend (she is the driver) to our house before prom for pictures. They haven't been dating all that long so she is pretty uncomfortable about making a big deal of it, but I want some pictures! Do you think I should agree to just take pictures of her before she leaves and trust her to get pictures of the two of them from his parents? or offer to go to his house for pictures? We have a pretty cherry tree in our backyard that will hopefully be blooming for pictures - so I would kind of like them at our house too.

    I had a good weekend, but I did splurge on some french silk pie yesterday .... but skipped the crust. I really only needed a couple of bites but had the whole thing :sick: ... oh well. Back to it today - I have been doing so well that I am really afraid of losing my motivation.

    Lstpaul - Thanks, i know it is water weight. I am sure it will come off, i was soo close to get out of the 270's last week but i am sure this week i will be busting my but to just get me back to where i was on friday. :sad:

    I am planning on checking out my new gym today( i signed a 2 yr contract so i guess have no choice anymore :SMILE: )

    Hi ladies,

    Just wanted to let you know I won't be posting this week because I'm in South Carolina (Isle of Palms - gorgeous!) for our family vacation. I'm tracking everything and will get lots of walking in. Yesterday I did yoga with my sister and then went for a 2 mile run/walk.

    Have a great week and HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY!!

    Hey ladies! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all of our mamas and soon-to-be mamas!

    Super short post today - still no official work station at work lol.

    Feeling near-death currently. Food sounds like the worst idea ever. Still waiting for TOM to show up.... we're not at T-plus 1 week. yikes!

    Sherry: Congrats to Hailey on her academic award and amazing grade point average!

    Renea: Welcome back!

    Melinda: Your story about bouncing after margaritas had me cracking up. Love it!

    Lauren: Enjoy your vacation!

    Not much to report here other than the 5k was mentally more challenging that the others I've done because I could see the finish line the whole time! Grrr. My eating wasn't great, but much better than last week, so I'll take it. That's about all on this front.

    Happy Monday!

    I do not know what to do...due to the program I am in, I have to weigh in on Monday and I am not suppose to step on a scale any other day of the week......i know you guys do weigh ins on Friday, but I have to on Monday....well just to let everyone know I lost 4 pounds this past week :)

    Yay Renea congrats 4 pounds is a lot of weight..... Just report Monday's weightloss on Friday. I am sure that no one would mind.

    Renee - I vote you weigh in on Mondays as usual and just let us know! on Friday This group is way more about the day to day support than just the Friday weigh ins :)

    Checking in for today:
    calories - just under
    exercise - uhm *shifty eyes*
    water - awesome

    Proud: I'm proud that I'm being more flexible with my diet. Today I got up late so I had toast with peanut butter and then next to nothing until dinner. I usually would have a snack but i suspected I'd go over at dinner and I'm glad I followed my gut. (hee hee) I think that it's really a bad idea to go too long without food but every once in a while? fine.

    When I read about people missing their period - after all the new moms.... I have to remind myself I no longer have the equipment! YIKES!:noway:

    TMI - just to add to my Cinco de Mayo story - per a video I saw... I was bouncing while a friend would say "fake boobies" and then Beth would bounce and you'd hear "real boobies" and we must have repeated this about four times... Luckily for me no faces were shown in the creation of that video! LET THIS BE A WARNING AGAINST ALCOHOL!!!:tongue:

    I was able to stretch quite a bit this weekend and I'm getting some good range of motion back :happy:

    Yesterday and today we were able to let the chickens run around the back yard for a few hours. It's really sweet to see how happy they are to get out of their coop. ("COOPED" up? LOL!) Their coop is made out of a chain link dog kennel with a nest box and a shelter box (a repurposed litter box and a winterized dog house) and roosts. - so they're outside all the time, but having all that fresh grass to hunt for bugs was clearly fun for them. Every few weeks we move their coop over fresh grass but they quickly "foul' it (OMG I'm cracking myself up!) It's been a cold wet spring so these nice days have been awesome!

    I hope everyone has a great week! I go back to the doctor tomorrow for more "expansion" - I'm not sure how long this will go on but I'm shooting for official "C" cup... Oh the excitement (not really).

    As for my positive attitude - really the whole thing has been kinda ridiculous and it's way easier to laugh about it than be upset. Plus I am SO :heart: BLESSED:heart: that I DON'T have cancer. Most people go through this while coping with the fear and anxiety their cancer diagnosis and treatment. I got a "heads up" warning thanks to the genetid testing that provided this great opportunity to avoid not only the trauma of a cancer diagnosis but also the fear and general disruption of your life for treatment. I guess it just puts me in the ideal spot where I'm far more thankful than distressed and the awkward or goofy aspects of the process just have to be laughed at :laugh: .

    That being said I hope I get cleared to work more than 20 hrs/ a week tomorrow because I miss:brokenheart: my old pay check:cry: almost as much as I miss my job!:drinker:

    You can all be happy that I'm not posting "after" photos of the surgery! :devil: Just imagine boobs shaped like tennis balls, with inverted nipples pointing outward and a general look of wide eyed terror. Kinda like eyes bugging out! :laugh: LOL they really are a sight!:blushing:
