Maintaining is a success in itself...you should be very proud that is a huge number!

Marisa won't tell you but she has been working out and has trimmed so much it is amazing! Buddy and I are so proud of her. When we went to Disney for Kady's birthday she was very tired and had a difficult time with all of the walking. FF to last December and what a difference! Her energy level adn her stamina was tremendous. It was clear that she not only looked different, she felt so much better!

My DDIL Erica has lost 45 pounds.

ok, checking in here too! Thanks Kathy for keeping us together and on the same page.

Marisa--wow on the weight loss! That's awesome!

Kathy--I can't believe hurricane season is almost here again. Seems like Ike was just here.

Okay, need to get my kids down for a nap

Marissa- That's great, it must have made Disney so much more fun. When I look at a 20 pound bag of dogfood, I always think I was carrying around 2 of those all the time! When you see something that weighs about what you lost I think it really leaves an impression.

Scotlass- I made your ground meat in puff (sorry I can't remember what you call it) but as a pie- so we call in meat pie. Whenever we have a chicken potpie my husband sees it and thinks I've made him the meat pie again. He really loved it.

Gretchen- I can't quote at all, let alone from another thread.

So I was grumbling this morning because my mom wanted me to go to the mattress store and help her decide which mattress to get. Well I thought this was just plain silly, I though she and my dad should pick it out. It turns out my parents got us a California King bed! I am so excited, our bed really needs to be replaced, I'm to young to wake up with a sore back, but it's a big expence and something more important always comes up. My husband is so darn tall, I'm really looking foward to having some space. My brother is getting a big present too, but they don't know what yet. I hope I get to help them pick.

Hey! Checking in...BBL...my new abbreviation curtesy of Vickie!

I hope everyone that is under the weather is feeling better.

I agree, Marisa, great job!

I am really going to try this week. I did not lose anything last week but like Ellen's Doug, Tom lost 7 pounds...I did do the treadmill this AM...Tom and the furbabies cooperated for the 1/2 hour I did. I guess they know I mean business this time.

I, too, love diet soda...even more with some vodka in it...I do not drink it as much now though. Maria, I like the stop and shop brand...not the one that is sweetened but the plain seltzer with flavors. Raspberry/lime and Cranberry/lime are my favs. I think Poland Spring has the flavors with lime too. I guess I like the limeyness.

Thanks for the kind words on me in the pics I posted...should I plug Mary Kay again??? Seriously, my skin and makeup have not looked this good in ages. I am also getting my hair chopped this week. I can't stand it anymore.

OK, for not having time to catch up, I am pretty chatty. Waiting for Tee Tom to wake up to eat. He is a couple hours passed due..

Did I mention he slept in his own room last night? What a good boy...he went to bed around 10pm, woke at 3:40, ate, and then I took him in with me and he woke about 6:30 ish.

OK, gotta run...xoxo

We had a quiet lazy weekend. We drove out near the base to see the Air show yesterday. Didn't want to go get in the crowds, but we found a great spot & was able to see the Blue Angels and the Raptor. Not much cooking, ate salads most of the weekend.

Argh I should have opened 2 windows & posted while reading! My head is swimming right now! There is just no way to miss the weekend & keep up. I'll comment on what I can remember, so I apologize to all of you that I forget!

Most current:

Marisa maintaining is just as hard as losing. Believe me, I know! Exericising is even harder, so you must be doing a really great job, if things are shifting to better places!

Has Kady been enjoying a lot of new foods these days?

Vickie, I'm sorry you are going to be having surgery May 26th! I know I missed it, but what kind of surgery are you having?

Wendie, Please come back we miss you!

Gretchen, Have you taken off to WDW yet? I hope y'all have a great relaxing (no worrying) trip! You deserve it!

older stuff:

Lauren, Loved the pics! Especially T in the basket & your Mom's funny pics!

Sorry I missed all your tips for Angelina! I will send her a text, just in case. In thier trip plans, Yankees Game tomorrow. ( I hope the weather is improving) They also have Mesa Grill, the 4040 Club and tickets for Stomp. She also had planned 2 pizza places that were recommended and she plans on shopping at Tiffany's this week! Tomorrow is her birthday, Josh had given her a silver bracelet from there & she wants a ring to match. I know she is also planning on shopping as much as he can stand.

Janice, Sorry you're sick! I looked for a post about how your date went. Did I miss it or did you miss the date?

Becky, Glad you have your new fridge! I'm sorry Laura doesn't like mussels, they sure looked good! I can't blame John at all for eating that whole steak, it looked delicous!

Bethany, I think you will feel better when you get out of that apt & that job! Mold & stress are doing bad things to you.

Laura, Glad you are getting a little help today, running the kids around! You do so much lady, don't feel guilty about a little take out.

Okay, My brain has lost everything else! I know there was a lot more I wanted to comment on!

Oh, Lindsay I hope you come back! You started this thread and it took on a life of it's own! It became more about friendship than food and so you really started all of these friendships. Please don't abandon that now, due to a bit of honesty. Prayers for Jan.

Oh go ahead and plug MK, I don't mind a bit!

I need my hair done so bad! I called my old stylist ( the one that was so pricey) because my hair has just not been acting right since I changed stylist. But I couldn't get anything until the 14th! Ugh.

Tee-Tom, I love it! I can't believe you have him sleeping in his own room already! Yeah!

I missed something else, what's BBL stand for?

Sheryl- Don't worry if you miss anything, it took me a minute to figure out how in the world having 2 windows open would help you. I thought maybe you needed some fresh air. Can you tell I'm not very computer literate?

That's great! I'm happy for you, mattresses are so darn expensive especially a big one like that!

I know that base! That is cool you got to see the planes.

I hope the weather improves some for her. It rained all day yesterday and this morning, but at least right now the sun is shining through the clouds and it's not raining. I love Stomp. I have a DVD of them and I went to their once.

I KNOW I will feel better when I get out of this apartment and this job. The rain is not helping the mold any; at least one of my windowsills was absorbing water yesterday - it was wet to the touch inside and the window was closed. That ceiling they fixed at work also was moldy; I could smell it after they scraped it off - and LEFT THE DUST AND PAINT CHIPS EVERYWHERE. Between them drilling through the wall one day (WHILE I was teaching ), them tearing up the floor, and messing with the ceiling, there's actually a layer of white dust on EVERYTHING now. If they give me a hard time about being sick today I'm going to take them up to my classroom and show them what I'm being forced to breathe. Add in the fact that my classroom practically overlooks one of the busiest interstates in the nation and my lungs are NOT happy!

There was more (especially from the other thread) that I wanted to comment on also.
