I agree! You look awesome Floss! I think I might order one of her tapes!!

In healthy foods related news.... This morning i made homemade cashew milk, buckwheat pancakes from scratch and a dairy free, plant based chocolate/banana pie- made with a nut date crust, silken tofu filling, Banana layer and berry topping. I'll let you know how it tastes!

Magdalene you look amazing!!!!

I took some pics when I was pitching dress clothes. Need to find the pics from BFF's wedding to show some before and afters.

*******************
Ladies and gents I am officially down 20 pounds!!

I feel like its taken forever and I do get frustrated because its a pound here and 1/2 a pound there but I also feel like I'm not neglecting myself and my food soul. I am a foodie, I will always be a foodie but now I don't need to eat a pound of chocolate in a sitting. I can indulge in one thing and then get right back on track again.
My chiropractor did the ideal protein diet and I toyed with the idea but when he told me he got to phase 3, which was maintenance mode, and he could have fruit again. I was like what?? No fruit for 3 months?? No thanks!!
Anyway, I'm rambling and I need to get moving on chores.
I hope everyone has a good day!!
I'm going to go mull over the dopey. I'd be really stupid to do it, but man I really want to.

hip: -1.4" (-3.5 cm)
bust: -1.4" (-3.5 cm)
breast (under bust): -1" (-2.5 cm)
thigh: -1.4" (-3.5 cm)
calf: -0.6" (-1.5 cm)
upper arm: -0.4" (-1 cm)

in total that is 9.6" or 24 cm and I am very happy with it. I did take pictures at the start and at the end, but stupid me did only take pictures in a bikini and I am not comfortable posting those on the internet. But I have pictures of myself in my workout clothes from when I realized that I need to be serious about losing weight again last September. I did lose in the autumn, but then regained most of it in December. So my start weight (and look) in January was similar to those September pictures. I made a collage with those pictures and I think one can see a huge difference! Here it is:

WOW great results! You look amazing

At WDW it is Animal Kingdom for me. I think the park is designed so beautifully and I love seeing the animals in habits that look so natural. In 2010 we did the "Wild by Design" tour there and they explained all about the design. That made me appreciate it even more.

Disneyland Paris would come in second.
Original Disneyland for sure. Granted I have only been to DLR, but I think I will always love the original I thought I would love California Adventure more, being from Cali... I loved Paradise Pier, and Soarin is one of my favorite rides! Plus GRR is awesome.. and ToT... and DD loves Ariel so of course we ate at her Grotto and rode LM plenty... And of course WOC! But for me it comes down to the thought that was put into DL, the theming, the railroad and monorail providing transportation, the lushness of the grounds, and benches everywhere (CA seems surprisingly devoid of these things!). Plus I love the "classic" rides like Spalsh, POC, HM and all Fantasyland rides! But I will admit, CarsLand was very nicely done and adds a lot to CA!

I appreciate this thread so much - I know I don't post here much, but I do read it and am so inspired by everyone's posts.
Congrats! Determination pays off!

I know what you mean about the Dopey. It doesn't sound like the best of ideas, but I'm counting down the days to registration! I just hope I am still upright and uninjured by the time it is over.

I was figuring maybe walk the 5k and the 10k then interval the 1/2 and the full. I could possibly do it. My intervals at this point are 14-15:30 minute miles. I haven't done more than 5 1/2 miles though. I'd really have to kick it up a notch.
But I'm having issues with my knee and my chiro thinks it could be my meniscus so I'm going to call my dr this week and have him refer me to ortho. I don't want to mess around if it is my meniscus.

[QUOTE=Flossbolna;47892318]
What kind of art is it that your DD wants to sell? Do you have any pictures? I would love to see them!


Actually she doesn't do many "pics", she now designs training gear for athletic dogs. She makes carpal wraps with leather backing, tug toys, cooling vests and flyball/walking harnesses. She still does some pics and loves to play with charcoal now and then, but nothing that she shows or enters in contests since she was in high school.


I would love to visit the Pacific North West one day and go for hikes!! Sounds wonderful!

I love it this time of year!! However hiking in the German countryside has to be pretty amazing too!!

Thanks! He has taken classes for the last 6 months and practicing with the team, but last night they told me he was officially part of the team and they wanted him to run in the next tournament!! Now I just need to get a passport since in our region most of the races are in Canada!

I would have to say Epcot! We went twice at Christmas and I loved all the decorations and the storytellers for each country. We even have a little Christmas tree we decorate with only ornaments from Epcot! It is also the main reason we are going for the F&WF!! Love experiencing a little bit of culture from around the world.

It was great! And when you hike a place called "Mud Mountain" its pretty much implied! lol We just wear jeans & good boots! Now the bugs...... they were just annoying!! My fault for not going until 4:30pm!!

I'd have to say Epcot. Mainly because it's the most "adult of the parks and the DH and I have SO many good memories from there! But of course, being the animal freak that I am, AK runs a very close second.

Guess we're good, I never even heard about it! Thanks for thinking about us! Tornadoes around here are so commonplace, we hardly pay that much attention to them, kind of like the hurricanes. You just button up the house and hope for the best!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are all starting the new week with lots of energy and enthusiasm!

Thanks for all your compliments about my pictures! I just wanted to make clear that this is more my overall weight loss success fo far, not just the 30 Day Shred. However, I can highly recommend it for toning - I never thought I would lose so many inches in such a short amount of time!

Did not manage to get my run in yesterday as it is bitterly cold and windy outside. So instead I started the Ripped in 30 yesterday. Some things I felt very confident about - but then she once again has those side lunges, which I am too uncoordinated to do properly... Felt so stupid. Hopefully I will be able to tackle them this time!!

I also got so annoyed with my weight swings that I decided to order a new scale to make sure that it is not the scale. Will be interesting to compare the results from two different scales...

Will be back later with replies, but here is your question of the day - which I stole from the archive because I thought it was such a great question:

QOTD:
What are the warning signs for you that you are maybe starting to lose your way on this lifelong journey? Is is eating more? Not journaling your food? Skipping workouts? Avoiding the scale? And the more important part of this.... HOW DO YOU GET BACK ON TRACK?
