I am doing WW online - so no meeting! I keep wondering whether I would be more successful if I went to the meetings though... Might give me some additional motivation?!

As for the QOTD, I'm doing Atkins. I had done WW in the past but I was hungry all the time. I decided to back on Atkins after having done it in '04. I'm now firmly convinced that my body is very sensitive to too many carbs and not in a good way. Now that I'm in a routine of carb control my energy level has gone up, I'm in a better mood and I'm more mentally alert.
Hope you are feeling better today! I find it interesting what you say about carb control. Over the last few weeks I have been really good at eliminating a lot of "white carbs". I love my carbs, but I try to be good with my choice of what I eat. I found the more complex (?) carbs I eat, the less hungry I am.

---

I went to the doctor again today, and it seems that finally my wound is getting where it is supposed to be. I am so tired of having to eal with that! I am supposed to be there again on Monday and I hope that by then he is finally happy with the progress. I can already tell that I am starting to have far more energy again!

This weekend will bring some challenges with family events, but I am determined to make good choices! And maybe I will be able to move a little bit more than over the last two weeks. The one thing I struggle with the most is social events that include eating. I always have the urge to use it as an excuse to splurge. I will try to not do that this weekend!

Hoping that I will have a good weigh in tomorrow, that would be the best motivation boost for being good this weekend!

Morning all! Here is the QOTD and I'll BBL to chat... I'm off to work for now!

QOTD for Thursday, February 20, 2014:

Well.... here it is... the day before weigh-in AGAIN. Thinking back on the past week, do you feel that you have done EVERYTHING that you needed/wanted to do to have a successful weigh-in day? If not, what would you like to change and what steps are you going to take going forward to make those changes?

If your week was GREAT, how to you plan to keep having great weeks?

Have you found any particular foods that are a good choice for both WW and low carb? I have discovered a few that can be helpful and I'll share if you would like.

Yup..... I'm DONE with this stupid snow too! Coming down like a bat out of he** right now, as we speak! I didn't even know it was supposed to snow AGAIN today!! Weather reports says this will only be 1-2 inches.... but yesterday's blanket was supposed to be 2-4" and turned out to be more like 10-12"!!

*****************

Happy Wednesday friends! I didn't post this morning because I told myself that no chatting until the workout was done! I finished my circuit training workout before lunch, but then got into a cleaning project and forgot to pop on here again until now!

As I mentioned above, DS's plane is currently over the ocean enroute to CR. They left on time from the school and both flights (from Boston to NC and NC to CR) left on time. He was able to sleep on the bus to the airport and again on the first flight, so hopefully he won't arrive absolutely exhausted.

With DS's poultry allergy, we don't eat much chicken or turkey here, so with him gone this week, I am looking forward to enjoying it a few times! DH was supposed to stop for a rotisserie chicken on his way home from the gym today, but the way it is snowing now, I told him to skip the market if he thought that the roads were too bad. If that is the case, we'll have eggs instead.

I'm in the middle of cleaning up my scrapbooking area in the hopes that with so much time to myself next week (school vacation and no kids at home!) I get to sit there for a few days! So off to finish that massive project! .................P
I am doing fairly well I think.. I am keeping my points at around 26 (22-26) and my Carbs about 70 (60-75) for the most part.. I find that egs at breakfast and using the WW veggie soup is helping at lunchtime is helping quite a bit I do allow myself about 6 or 7 frozen (no sugar added) raspberries for my yogurt (activia light vanilla).. I've gotten a bag of baked lays for when I want the salty crunch of a chip and if I have 5 that is enough.. I do keep a stash of SF chocolate at my desk for my lunch dessert - just one piece a day.. and I chew lots of gum.. fruity ones in the am and mint ones in the afternoon..
Please give me your suggestions I would love to hear what you have found..

YAY scrapbooking! I have a weekend getaway next month!! can't even wait

Got a FB message from DS about 30 minutes ago.... they are safe and sound in CR. We tried a Skype call, but the wi-fi kept dropping the call... but at least I heard a "hi". He messaged that he would try again later. He has a VOIP type phone app on his smartphone, but he was having trouble getting that to work as well. Oh well.

I've had dinner and a bath, so I'll off to find a snack and watch some tv while I do a bit of scrapping! I'll be on in the morning with the QOTD!............P
Glad to here your DS is there safe and sound.. Enjoy your week "off" and do lots of things YOU want - I know it hard when the kids are home to do our own stuff so this is a great time to catch up!

Well I have done almost eveything I can - my workouts have fallen to the wayside this week.. I went on Monday but we got a snowstorm on Tuesday so I skipped, then yesterday we got more snow, today we need to clean up from those two because after dark we are expecing sleet/freezing rain/snow over night again! so I'll go again on Friday - hopefully it will help my WI on Sat am..
HOWEVER with that said my food has been ON TRACK! I was emotional last night and wanted to eat everything under the sun but I had a hot cup of tea then I relaxed on the couch and the kitty jumped right up and we had a GREAT snuggle I also managed to plan out all my food for next week! for me it's all about the planning, that is how I find I am successful.
BBL to chat Michelle

Good morning, all! Well, I'm officially off the fitness bandwagon this week. Only completed 3 out of 6 workouts and with so much going on, I've decided to just give myself time to rest with everything going on. I'm trying not to see it as a failure, as I am staying OP food wise. Plus, I did want to add an extra week to my workout plan before moving up in the Power90 video series. I was hoping to do it to feel more comfortable about moving up, but now I'll do it because I need to make up for this week!

We'll see how that's reflected tomorrow morning at my W/I!

It is really quiet! With the weather, and everything going on, and everyone being sick, it is quite a strange time.

YAY! Very glad to hear that! You got this, Flossbolna! And sending lots of good vibes for all your family events this weekend!

Hmmm... Well, this is my 7th week in my weight loss journey (this time around), and its the first one where I've just been mentally and physically beat. I'm disappointed that I couldn't get the fitness in that I wanted, if only because afterwards, I usually feel so accomplished, and it really does make me feel better, even if I'm sick. But, I'm telling myself that if I let my body rest and get strong this week, then come Sunday when I start again, I'll be ready to kick some serious butt!

Next week will be my last week on Power90 1-2, before I move up to Power90 3-4! So, since it will be my last week with these moves, I'm going to give it my all!

WTG on the tea! And I have been thinking about adopting a cat for a long time, and just listening to you talk about snuggling with yours while you plan your meals makes me all smiley and giggly!!!!

Hi all! We are all updated! So sorry for the delay this week... it has been crazy... wedding plans are in full swing here! Only 25 days left and I getting super stressed trying to make sure everything is done and ready and paid for. Good news is that I went in for my final dress fitting and my dress looked amazing! Some of you might remember that I ordered it a size too small so I am glad it fits... Actually, I would like to lose another 10 lbs before the big day and I can't lose any more than that or my dress might be too big!

Anyway, I'll be back later with some replies

I used to go to a lot of estate sales and liked glass, old cat stuff, etc. but don't do that hardly at all anymore. and of course everything Disney. Well, older stuff anyway--had to be Walt Disney Productions or older. I don't know much about the psychology of it...

So we made the really hard decision to let her go. The vet was great and very supportive. I really felt like that was what he wanted us to do, because while we could treat her, she was just progressively getting sicker. It was just so hard, because she had a really great weekend and was very active and alert (well at least for her). It is so strange, because for the first time in over 25 years we don't have a pet.

I did want to jump in and say good luck to everyone running this weekend. I wish you all a great race(s) and wonderful weather.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

QOTD for Tuesday, February 18, 2014:

Do you take any kinds of vitamins or health supplements? It is something you decided to take or was it recommended by a health professional? If you don't, do you think you should? Or do they think they are a waste of money?

Oh good lord I am a vitamin fiend. Thanks to Dr. Oz....I try to keep the spending under control buying online and I keep organized with those daily pill things. I keep waiting to turn into Supergirl but it hasn't happened yet....

BBL to chat!..........P
I just try to eat less and exercise more. Sometimes it works.

Well I think I did but I was sabotaged by husband putting bacon in the burgers he made while I slept! Woke up starving after a nap after work and went and piled on some bacon and guacamole on the cheeseburgers he made then halfway through eating mine he told me he put bacon in the burger. Well I wasn't going to stop at that point. I also am back to snacking too much at night, I noticed I do eat less if I eat some almonds right after working out but I forgot to do that last night and snacked too much. Also I think I ate too many almonds the night before, just a handful works good.

Have been busy my days off, moved my daughter to a quad in the university area where her friend has a room. It's kind of weird coincidence I lived in the same quad when I was pregnant with her--her friend is in the room I lived in. Saw an ultrasound picture of the baby and I guess it makes it more real, but she miscarried once before when she was 4 months along so I'm still just... it was such an extraordinarily painful experience for all of us.
We've been warmer this week with a lot of rain. I got caught in the rain on my bike on the way home last week so I haven't rode since. Am up 2 pounds as of this am, but I'm pretty sure my monthly fun thing coming up has something to do with that-- well that and girl scout cookies.
Well, I better get....

Okay ladies.... I came on here to chat before hitting the TM, but just as I sat down DS was on FB and I had a nice PM conversation with him. He is doing great and posted some beautiful pictures. SO happy to hear from him!! But I need to hit the TM before it gets any later. So I know you'll understand when I say TTYL!.........................P

As for the QOTD, I'm doing Atkins. I had done WW in the past but I was hungry all the time. I decided to back on Atkins after having done it in '04. I'm now firmly convinced that my body is very sensitive to too many carbs and not in a good way.

Glad you found a good carb balance for your life!

Well, I admit that I did WW "on my own" most recently (since 2008), but I really counted on this group here to help me out. That being said, I have done WW meetings in the past and REALLY enjoyed them and looked forward to them. It may help. The reason I stopped attending "real" meetings was proximity.... it was just too far a drive to commit to at that point in my life.


Hope you are feeling better today! I find it interesting what you say about carb control. Over the last few weeks I have been really good at eliminating a lot of "white carbs". I love my carbs, but I try to be good with my choice of what I eat. I found the more complex (?) carbs I eat, the less hungry I am.



---

I went to the doctor again today, and it seems that finally my wound is getting where it is supposed to be. I am so tired of having to eal with that! I am supposed to be there again on Monday and I hope that by then he is finally happy with the progress. I can already tell that I am starting to have far more energy again!

This weekend will bring some challenges with family events, but I am determined to make good choices! And maybe I will be able to move a little bit more than over the last two weeks. The one thing I struggle with the most is social events that include eating. I always have the urge to use it as an excuse to splurge. I will try to not do that this weekend!

Hoping that I will have a good weigh in tomorrow, that would be the best motivation boost for being good this weekend!
I also need to be "good" this weekend. I am going to visit DD and it does seem like it is always an "excuse" to overeat (free buffets do that to me!) or make bad choices.

I've gotten a bag of baked lays for when I want the salty crunch of a chip and if I have 5 that is enough.. I do keep a stash of SF chocolate at my desk for my lunch dessert - just one piece a day.. and I chew lots of gum.. fruity ones in the am and mint ones in the afternoon..
Please give me your suggestions I would love to hear what you have found..

I wasn't aware that you could have that many carbs. I kind of figured you were trying to keep it under 30 or 40. I know that Atkins induction wants it under 20 (if I recall properly). Let me pull out my "list" and I'll send you some suggestions later.


YAY scrapbooking! I have a weekend getaway next month!! can't even wait

I really enjoyed the time I spent there yesterday, but of course, got caught up doing other things.... but it was SO NICE to be back at it. It's been a LOOOONG time since I took the time to work at my favorite hobby!


Glad to here your DS is there safe and sound.. Enjoy your week "off" and do lots of things YOU want - I know it hard when the kids are home to do our own stuff so this is a great time to catch up!

I plan to do a few museums and such... things that no one else ever wants to do with me!


Well I have done almost eveything I can - my workouts have fallen to the wayside this week.. I went on Monday but we got a snowstorm on Tuesday so I skipped, then yesterday we got more snow, today we need to clean up from those two because after dark we are expecing sleet/freezing rain/snow over night again! so I'll go again on Friday - hopefully it will help my WI on Sat am..
HOWEVER with that said my food has been ON TRACK! I was emotional last night and wanted to eat everything under the sun but I had a hot cup of tea then I relaxed on the couch and the kitty jumped right up and we had a GREAT snuggle I also managed to plan out all my food for next week! for me it's all about the planning, that is how I find I am successful.
BBL to chat Michelle
Glad the kitty snuggle helped! Sounds like a good plan for me tonight after dinner.... a hot cup of tea and a warm kitty in my lap!

Only completed 3 out of 6 workouts and with so much going on, I've decided to just give myself time to rest with everything going on. I'm trying not to see it as a failure, as I am staying OP food wise. Plus, I did want to add an extra week to my workout plan before moving up in the Power90 video series. I was hoping to do it to feel more comfortable about moving up, but now I'll do it because I need to make up for this week!

We'll see how that's reflected tomorrow morning at my W/I!

Well, even if the number isn't what you are hoping for, you will keep moving forward, right???

So glad to hear your DS arrived safely! I'm sure he is going to have a fabulous time in CR! And as others have said - enjoy yourself this week!!

Thanks! I'm calling it my "retirement practice"!!


Hmmm... Well, this is my 7th week in my weight loss journey (this time around), and its the first one where I've just been mentally and physically beat. I'm disappointed that I couldn't get the fitness in that I wanted, if only because afterwards, I usually feel so accomplished, and it really does make me feel better, even if I'm sick. But, I'm telling myself that if I let my body rest and get strong this week, then come Sunday when I start again, I'll be ready to kick some serious butt!

Next week will be my last week on Power90 1-2, before I move up to Power90 3-4! So, since it will be my last week with these moves, I'm going to give it my all!

Good way to think about.... resting and rebuilding the body to hit it again hard next week!

WTG on the tea! And I have been thinking about adopting a cat for a long time, and just listening to you talk about snuggling with yours while you plan your meals makes me all smiley and giggly!!!!
I think this one is available for adoption!!

Only 25 days left and I getting super stressed trying to make sure everything is done and ready and paid for. Good news is that I went in for my final dress fitting and my dress looked amazing! Some of you might remember that I ordered it a size too small so I am glad it fits... Actually, I would like to lose another 10 lbs before the big day and I can't lose any more than that or my dress might be too big!

Anyway, I'll be back later with some replies
WOOHOO on that dress! Can't wait to see pictures of the big day! I can't believe it is just 25 days away!!

Sweet of you to post that for Rose!


Well I think I did but I was sabotaged by husband putting bacon in the burgers he made while I slept! Woke up starving after a nap after work and went and piled on some bacon and guacamole on the cheeseburgers he made then halfway through eating mine he told me he put bacon in the burger. Well I wasn't going to stop at that point. I also am back to snacking too much at night, I noticed I do eat less if I eat some almonds right after working out but I forgot to do that last night and snacked too much. Also I think I ate too many almonds the night before, just a handful works good.

Mmmmmm... bacon cheese burgers.... with guacamole! I'm so hungry!

Have been busy my days off, moved my daughter to a quad in the university area where her friend has a room. It's kind of weird coincidence I lived in the same quad when I was pregnant with her--her friend is in the room I lived in. Saw an ultrasound picture of the baby and I guess it makes it more real, but she miscarried once before when she was 4 months along so I'm still just... it was such an extraordinarily painful experience for all of us.
We've been warmer this week with a lot of rain. I got caught in the rain on my bike on the way home last week so I haven't rode since. Am up 2 pounds as of this am, but I'm pretty sure my monthly fun thing coming up has something to do with that-- well that and girl scout cookies.
Well, I better get....
Prayers for your daughter, of course. Sorry about the rain!
****************

Evening friends! Well..... I keep getting interrupted here so now I have no time left to chat. Dinner takes an hour to bake and it is already after 5pm and I haven't started it yet! I did hit the TM and did a nice stretch after, so that was something. I left on my workout clothes and I plan to do just a few minutes of weight while dinner cooks.

I'm off to DD's university tomorrow after work. I'm going to stay over with her and hit a museum with her on Saturday that she needs to visit for her Aesthetics class. Maybe some tourist sights too, if the weather is okay. I'll be back either late Saturday or on Sunday to start my week of ME time!

I'll try to pop on tomorrow, but I am working, so I don't know about my computer access. TTYL...............P

Good morning, everyone! My name is Stacey and I'll be your coach for the next couple of days!

Today is National Sticky Bun Day!



Besides being delicious, they also represent a big thing in weight loss - getting stuck, or plateauing, which brings us to today's QOTD!

Friday, February 21st QOTD: Have you ever been through a plateau? How long were you in it, and what steps did you take to get out of it? If you haven't had one, what steps do you take to prevent one?


And in the spirit of getting stuck... to something delicious, here is an amazing HEALTHY mini sticky bun recipe that is only 2 WW P+s

Happy weigh-ins and I'll BBL to chat!

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
I LOVE THIS ... I have quite a few fur babies waiting for me.. can't wait see each and everyone one of them again someday..
prayer coming your way for your DD..
sorry about the extra bacon

HUGS to you Rose for the loss of Sugar..
