QOTD - What is your favorite time of year to visit WDW or DL?

Christmas is my favorite. Even with the crowds. We go to DL about once a month so going on rides is secondary to the overall theme. I love the fireworks on cool/cold evenings. Since I live where the average temp is the mid 70's, I like the nights where I can wear my MM mittens and have hot chocolate and watch the fireworks. I LOVE the fireworks. And for some reason they always make me cry.

QOTD: Let's do another Disney related today...If Disney were to get rid of any of their current rides or attractions which one would you miss the most.

Peter Pan and Pirates. PP is my favorite, but I don't ride it very often, cause the lines are always so long. Pirates, just cause it's the classic. It is a must do every trip. I think I would also miss the train. I like the down time of "A Grand Circle Tour Around Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom".
Glad you found your way back to us!!

Sounds like you had plenty of exercise going while you were away. Glad that you had a nice trip but got back home safely as well.

Tomorrow is our WI day, don't forget to send your weight and COW numbers in tomorrow. I'm going to make sure I don't forget mine this week too.

I got a few things accomplished around the house yesterday but enjoyed a little more calmer day. Needing to run errands this morning but then will be back around to get a few more things finished up this afternoon in the house with the AC.

QOTD - This may have been ask before but I can't remember. Something I've been thinking about. Is it harder for you to stay on track with your plan over the weekend? Is there anything you can do to help you survive the weekend on plan?

I definitely find it harder over the weekend. During the weekends I find us eating out a little more which of course is nice from the stand point of not having to cook it but it isn't as healthy as eating at home. We still split meals when we go out so that helps with the portion control. I need to work a little harder at planning some meals at the house during the weekend and that might help.


I hope everyone has a great day!!

Checking in! I anticipate a smaller loss this week (two weeks in a row of 2 pounds is a first for me). THIS morning I'm only half a pound from my next clippie, if it doesn't happen tomorrow it will by my Monday WW weigh in. There's motiviation for a 'clean' weekend!

My daily commitment check in.

Yesterday was a good day I think. My Inlaws are Elks members and last night was Spud Night. This is where you get a GIANT spud and then you get to put on the toppings from the Topping Bar. Since I knew we would be having this for dinner, I planned my lunch to be mostly fruit and Veggies. So I feel that even though I had some toppings that might not have been the best choice, I had what I wanted, and I was only able to eat half. And my steps yesterday were over 14000 which gave me 7 activity points.

QOTD....YES, the weekend is much harder. If we are just have an at home weekend or if we are out of town, both are very very hard. During the week is much more structured. If we are home on weekends, my DH sleeps in late, but my latest is about 7:30 (he's til 10:00 or later) and I really dont have anything planned. Sometimes I'll watch a movie or read the sunday paper, but this is the time I tend to graze. I have started making the egg beaters in the Mug and really like this so I'm going to try having this for breakfast when I get up with a sandwich thin. If I make more of an effort to plan what I'm going to be eating I tend to do better. But if I get up with no plan that's were the grazing comes in.

So what I can do it plan. have a plan and stick to it. Plus this weekend I am commiting to coming here and sharing what my plan is and how I executed it.

It would have to be Space Mountain. to go to the Magic Kingdom and not have Space Mountain is like going to the football game and not have Cheerleaders or a Marching Band. The Magic Kingdom won't be the same without Space Mountain. And with Space mountain down for rehab its kind of borring at the Magic Kingdom

I would really miss the Tomorrowland Transit Authority - I know that is probably strange! We love riding that ride, everyone can ride and it is nice and long and cool.

Today's qotd - It is harder for me to stay OP during the weekend, but I usually try to do better with portion control. We do eat out more and it is sometimes really hard to find something that will work, but I just do the best I can. We went to an arena football game last weekend and I had a grilled chicken sandwich instead of a slice of pizza. That was a good choice, but I also had some bavarian nuts. I looked up the nutritional content when i got home and I wont be having those again! However cotton candy only had 57 calories for 1/2 of the bag so that would have been better!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!! I have 4 nights in a row to work off 2 nights then work 2 more and then we are going to Fort Wilderness for the 4th! We aren't going to the parks, but we are going to go to Typhoon Lagoon! I can't wait!

Jennifer

Yes, it is definitely harder for me to stay on track over the weekend. We usually spend more time away from the house. Often times, when we do this, I don't make the best food choices. I really need, when we eat out, to remember what my goal is and not to give into just eating what looks good.

My answer for QOTD:
Yes, weekends are harder, and I plan to use a bunch of my flexpoints over the weekend. Weekdays tend to be more structured, but if I don't bring enough food in my lunch, then I get into trouble hitting the vending machine. So I can mess up anytime.

Quick question

Has anyone ever had an overnight loss of more than 7 pounds? I've had a loss of 4 pounds (water?) - but never more and yesterday I weighed in at Medifast - this morning I weighed in at home (difference in scales is about .5 pound) and I was 10 pounds lighter.... I am of course going to check this out again tomorrow morning but it would explain my "lack of loss" for the past 2 weeks even though I kicked up my work-outs... and no it's not muscle changes because I've been working out since November.

Hi guys

I will post the results for last week's COW 4. For COW 5 just keep working for another week. Next Thursday I will just take the points for the 2 weeks you have been working on COW 5.

I am sorry but I can't think about the COW right now. I have my foot surgery tomorrow and there are a million things on my mind. I have to go out right now and get my prescriptions so they are in the house for when I get back. My surgery is at noon and I can't eat after midnight. I have to be at the hospital at 9:30 to get my crutches and lessons on how to use them (It's been 35 years since I last used them). I then have to be at the surgical floor by 10. Thanks for all the great words of support. They mean a lot to me. I will be back on either tomorrow night when I can't sleep or Saturday.

Kathy I am still thinking about you and your mom. My prayers are still with you and your family.

Talk to you guys soon

donac, here is some pixie dust for you for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery! I will be thinking of you sitting in your easy chair working on your needlework this week-end.

Don't worry about the COW and take care of yourself! You deserve it! We appreciate all that you do for us!

FLAngie!
There's always room for one more. Our WeighIn day is Fridays, so just PM me (LuvBaloo) your weight tomorrow and you'll officially be entered.


Peggy Jo - that's a huge loss, and the only thing I can think off is water weight and constipation I have frequently seen overnight changes of 5-8lbs, which is why I don't weigh in when I feel bloated/yucky.
