    Hey Gang ~ I just had to change my profile to get in the Halloween spirit! I love the fall..I wish we had it here in CA. Today it was over 100!!!!

    I decided to take today off from exercise. I have closed out my diary with 15 calories to spare. I am feeling good and going to catch up on my water. Weigh in tomorrow anything can happen :huh:

    NeurotcVirgo ~ WOW you have come sooo far. How long has it taken you??? I am inspired. It is great that you have those pictures...we all have some doosies tucked away. Thanks for sharing!!! glad you are feeling better! Don't beat yourself up if you are sick you're sick. Now that you are better go kick some butt!!!!

    Hey everyone,

    Well it's Friday here and I am off on a hen do tonight, it's an 80's theme night and there is a sit down meal, which is not particulary healthy so I will be hitting the gym hard tommorrow.

    I lost again this week 2.2lbs
    Current weight 220.2
    So 20 lbs to shift now, fingers crossed I can do it.
    Sorry to here about your job Jenn that is not what you need with Christmas round the corner, I will keep my fingers crossed for you, and send good thoughts your way,

    Enjoy your weekend ladies.

    Happy Friday Everyone!!! Not sure you could possibly understand how happy I am that it is, indeed, FRIDAY!!!!

    Let the weigh-ins begin!!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful week and has a weekend of enjoyment planned ahead :flowerforyou:
  • I weigh in this morning at 128.

    Jenn I am so sorry to hear about your job. I will pray that your boss will come to their senses and secure your job for you or that you will find a job where all your hard work is appreciated. Thank you for all the hard work you have put into this challenge. You work long hours and still find time to support and challenge everyone. If I work as hard on this challenge as you do I will be to my goal weight in no time.

    This is up .2 but I'll take it I have had horrible allergy issues all week! I actually almost feel normal today..but still light headed and congested. I figure I will continue to take the rest of the week off and hopefully will be hard back at it Monday.

    I know I dont really post much, but I do want you all to know I read every post and have prayed for the sick and sick family members, those that were down, and been happy to read the good news.....I will continue to do so :flowerforyou:
  • Good Friday all,
    I will be weighing in on Monday and I feel really confident that I will be losing a lot of water weight. Whoo hoo. Have a great day everyone!!
  • I know I dont really post much, but I do want you all to know I read every post and have prayed for the sick and sick family members, those that were down, and been happy to read the good news.....I will continue to do so :flowerforyou:




    This is an awesome quote, and exactly how I feel!! I don't reply about every illness, challenge, setback, or success, but I read everything, and truly pray for each one of you in every situation you're in. Such an amazing group of unique individuals, but all with a common goal to make positive changes in life, and to support everyone else here along the way...


    I do not like my scale. CW: 136 so it refuses to budge, which is extremely frustrating, but it is what it is, and I will just have to deal with it and work through it. GOOD LUCK to everyone else for a WONDERFUL WEIGH IN and have a fantastic weekend!!! :flowerforyou:

    I've done all but 10 minutes of the dancing from the physical challenge this week and walked 16 miles so far. I should do another 10 miles before monday. I've taken a couple of weeks off doing 30 day shred after I completed 31 days. I just fancied a change. I've just started my step aerobics DVD for the first time and will see how I go with that - I'm planning to do a 2 week stretch if my knees hold out and then reassess.

    As far as ringing a friend - I speak to all my friends on a weekly basis so didn't know how to complete this challenge. I've decided I'm going to ring my sister in law tomorrow as I haven't spoken to her for a few months and we have children more or less the same ages.

    Food wise, I've not been great - I'm mostly under goal but my food choices have been quite high in sugar and fat. I need to work on that! I'm usually quite good at making good choices but I'm having a bit of a blip over the last couple of weeks.

    Jenn, I'm sorry about the job situation. What's worked for me in the past is to just blast everyone I know (regardless of how well I know them) letting them know I'm looking. You never know when someone from your past (or present!) may have a lead for you.

    Sending positive vibes your way!

    Have been having a great week and lost all the weight I gained on my recent trip(daily weigher) and stepped on the scale this morning to find it isn't working. Hope its just batteries. I had a terrible run in with a co-worker this afternoon and she attacked me hard core in front of my boss and two physician colleagues! I hope this doesn't cause me to ruin all the hard work of the week:) I will try and get batteries tomorrow and weigh in Sunday. Good weekend to everyone!

    Jenn -- I am putting your job situation on my prayer list.

    Angie - I hope Ody recovers well at home - I am sure he will be happier at home.

    johanna_elaine - It is sweet that you tried to help the puppy, but we have to know our limits too. I know we couldn't have a big dog in our house either. Hopefully she will find the right family to fit into.

    This morning I put on my barn jacket which has gotten several years use from me & which I already know before putting it on that it doesn't zip over my hips. Well... this morning I thought I would give zipping it up a shot & it DID zip!! And not only that, but it wasn't even tight!!! Well that nsv lasted me most of the morning. It still makes me smile & I just wanted to share.
