    Verda, I meant to say.. I have hypothyroidism and know ALL too well how brutal the thyroid "bulge" can be. It is incredibly easy for me to put weight on and I have to work extra hard to get it off again. So frustrating. But, we can only work with what we have and do our best!!! Keep on trying because it's better than the alternative EVERY time :)

    Long hours are my diet this week. I've still got a day of work left, and I've already gotten 40 billable hours this week (meaning, more than 40 hours spent at work). I'm just crossing my fingers that I get to eat lunch tomorrow.

    Kristin - Kadence is so cute! She looks like she has a ton of personality.

    Happy Friday everyone! If I survive this week, I'm having a drink tomorrow and I don't care how many calories it is.

    Kristen - Your pictures are soooo cute.

    Amy's Shred report Day 2 - I got a little further today! :bigsmile: Still didn't finish circuit 1, but I'm getting closer! I'm worn out! I think every muscle in my body is tired and sore.

    I went over my cals today by 236, but I didn't have as much sodium today as yesterday. I was over by 800 yesterday and only 400 today. So I'm happy!

    Hi my beautiful ladies.

    I promise I'm not ignoring you. I haven't even had time to read through everyone's posts, so definitely can't do personals. Just wanted to do a quick check-in.

    I ran over 3 miles outside on hills yesterday in my neighborhood for the first time EVER in 28 minutes. I was tinkled pink with myself. I have since discovered that my legs and bum knee are actually ready for a 5K. My lungs on the other hand need some improvement. But it's a start.

    Got to finish work, get to the gym for Zumba (thinking of you B), get to my kid's school because someone in the cafeteria isn't there so I get to run around (going to wear my HRM just out of curiosity), helping a bunch of kindergartener and first graders open these snacks their parents sent with them. Then quickly to doing errands, maybe coffee, with SIL, and bible meeting tonight.

    So I promise, you are all in my thoughts all day long and I'm kicking myself for not "hanging out" more. But I'll see what I can do at least by the other side of the weekend (have kids ALL weekend for a change - so excited).

    Have a wonderful FRIDAY and an awesome, productive, active weekend. Miss you guys

    Wow! Must be a busy day for everyone.

    I got through my 3rd day of Shred! I got just a little bit further again today. Still sore, but not quite as bad as earlier. I did great on my cals today too. And was only over by 76 on my sodium. I've only gotten about half my water today though. But in all, I'm happy with how I did today! :bigsmile: My plan is to continue Shred over the weekend too. The kids have a birthday party tomorrow and pizza will be served. I plan on eating some, but hopefully I can have the willpower to not eat too much. Luckily, the party starts at 11:30 am, so I have plenty of time to work it off.

    Have a great weekend!!:flowerforyou: :heart:

    Good morning. Busy, busy, busy day. Work as usual. Then teaching the bible in the morning and meeting in the afternoon. Have kids all weekend, so I'm excited, but already feeling the exhaustion setting in. No formal exercise today. Was going to try and do a quick run outside but it is POURING. So just need to be really good about my eating as I am on a roll weight loss wise (I think).

    Hope you all are having a good day and get to do something fun this weekend :)

    Good Saturday morning Sixers! Sorry I have not been posting for a few days but I was MOVING that son of mine AGAIN! I swear each time that it is the last, but;;;;;! I started late Wed and I finished up Friday afternoon. I put in really long hours to get most of it done! I don't know if I'm stupid or nice! My husband says the first for doing it over and over again! I better have a good weigh in on Tuesday! Good job ladies on the workouts, it really comes down to both fitness and the amount of food we eat to lose weight/ or be healthy! Kristen thank you for sharing your loves:love: , what a beautiful family!

    omg sixers, how i have missed you! woah forums moving a little slow this week. haha. anyways I AM BACK (for now) I feel like I can't keep up with everyone's lives because mine is too overwhelming for me let alone anyone elses. I am exhausted, I am SERIOUSLY looking forward to my day off tomorrow, I am going to spend it cleaning my room, doing homework, and maybe even cleaning my car. It has been in the 50's the last couple days here in MI and I am LOVING the warmer weather, I cannot wait until we are in the 70's. SO good news I suppose, I got the job as a Divemaster in Florida, so my entire summer is going to be spent in florida! YAY! And hopefully, besides coming home to visit and pack more things up, I will never have to return to Michigan again! :bigsmile: . The bad news is since tuesday, when i got dehydrated working out, I havent felt like myself... I have felt out of it, and sometimes I get cramps, and I have slept like total crap all week. I haven't even had time to talk to my boyfriend really, and i miss him IMMENSELY, I would be on the phone with him now except he went out camping/mudding last night and he wont have service until later today. I am going to work out after work today, It looked like I was down some today when i weighed in. i am not sure though. And I REALLY need to make it to the gym a lot more the next two weeks. I need to show big results for my personal trainer weigh in on my birthday. So I am hoping that taking time to declutter my life and relax tomorrow will help me get everything back under control.

    I have noticed that some people have been missing the last couple days, Tiff? Tamm? AmyS? just to name a few, Where is everyone this week!? Your all in my thoughts!

    And I wanna do a couple personals, I don't have time for a large amount, but i would still like to do a few!

    Em - thanks for the words of encouragement!!!

    Cathy- love the workout!

    Rhi- Easter Eggs?! lol isnt it a little early for that?!

    Alison - SOUNDS LIKE YOU DESERVE THAT DRINK!!!!!

    Amypyr- WOOO SHRED IT OUT GIRLIE!!!!

    izzypup- YAY WATER!

    Lula- Keep up the great work SISTA! Thats awesome!! :)

    vhuber- gosh busy busy busy! I am sure you will show great numbers though!!!!!

    I am sorry the personals are so short, but i do mean all my words of encouragement!!!!!
    HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY SIXERS!!!!

    Hey guys!! I'm mia right now... And will be until I get over the flu! I finally lost the fight with the sickness. Have been sleeping 10 hrs a night just to make it through the day. Hope you all have a great week! I should be feeling better soon :)

    Hey sixers!!!!!!!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, HAPPY SUNDAY! I am spending today cleaning my room, possibly my car, organizing school and scuba stuff, picking out pictures that i want to print out for my photo album, doing hw for school, and studying ASVAB. While my boyfriend in Ocala is trying to make money by hosting a yard sale, because his mom and him have 2 weeks to come up with over 1,500 dollars or they are going to loose their house and their land. :sad: :noway: :grumble: :indifferent: :sick: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

    They are such good people, i hate watching them go through this. And I can't do anything besides wut little money i have to em.... i wish i lived in florida so bad, SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO BADLY!

    Okay on a side note, I found my towards motivation. The stuff I have REALLY been lacking lately.... And I found it in a bathing suit I bought back in the day, and never got to wear because I put on pregnancy weight before i even got to wear it.... So I grew some balls (as my friends would say) and tried on the bathing suit last night... surprisingly I got it on.... but... god the result was not pretty. It honestly made me cry to see myself like that... so i took pictures, and decided I wasnt really going to care unless I showed other people my shame... So Sixers, If you need to shield ur eyes from my fat *kitten* I will totally understand, but i thought this would really help me... Because by summer, I want to look FOXY in this bathing suit.

    Gahhh, the last one is the one tht upset me the most... seriously, sobbed. Who knew i has such cottage cheese legs n butt! So ya, every day that i loose focus and dont want to eat right or work out, i am going to just log into MFP and look at my default picture....

    Alrighty, I hope i didnt burn everyone's retinas! I am sorry,

    Ohhhhh B!!
    I laughed, not at your pictures or your feelings but what and how you wrote!! Yes I agree, you NEED to get after it and lose the weight not only for yourself but for your new job and of course the seams on the swimsuit would appreciate it too! You will be taken more seriously in your job if you not only do but LOOK the part! Get what I mean! I think you are extremely brave to post your pics but it also tells me how badly you want to ditch the pounds and yes I think they will be a great motivator! Please Log EVERYTHING you eat and wear a heart rate monitor to see how much you are actually burning! YOU can do this B, you are young, active and willing so get after it girl! And by the way my retinas are still fine!!!

    vhuber! lol that made me smile. I am VERY desperate to lose the weight. And i promise I look MUCH better in the swimsuit i wear for work, i bought that one 3 or 4 years ago... and never got to wear it, and i held on to it thinking i would always fit back into it. my normal one piece looks A LOT better i sweat, much more flattering. But its true, its hard to be a scuba diver, who does scuba diving for a living, when i dont look very good in a bathing suit!!!! but you did just make my day... i dont know where to get a heart moniter, or even what kind ot get though!!!!!

    I wear a Polar F11! It is the chest strap one that transmits to the wrist watch! This was given to me as a gift from my youngest son for x-mas and I really only need a F6 because they are less advanced! F11 have all kinds of uses (even while swimming) that I will never use but hey you are young and in the era of electronic know all that I am sure you would have it figured out in no time! I wear mine for ANY and ALL fitness to calculate how much I can eat and burn!! Best wishes sweetie, you can do this!

    It has been so wonderful to be able to be home this weekend and go shopping for a few new shirts, and groceries, and I even baked some white chocolate macadamia nut blondies to bring in to my work tomorrow. We had a big big big case last week and it went really well Friday, so the week ended on a high note. I already have my oatmeal getting ready in the fridge for tomorrow morning, and for dinner I had a whole bag of steamed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots with some fake butter and shredded italian cheese. Delicious! I think my body has been craving things like water and fruit and veggies since my food and eating schedule has been so off for a whole week.

    I think I'd like to get a heart monitor when I save up a little money. My office is in the basement of the historic house my firm is in, and my supervisor's office is on the third floor. And we don't have an elevator. So, I call the staircase closest to my office my "free gym membership." I'm curious to know how many calories I'm burning at work, especially on the days I'm not really getting to eat.

    The weather has been great this weekend, and I'm so excited to start taking my dogs out on walks again. I love spring!

    I hope everyone has a great week. My goal for this week is just to try to eat healthy food, even when it's late and I'm starving and not in the mood to try to find something healthy. I just have to do it.

    -Alison
