Tara! Girl, go run out and get some SF stovers or something- no cheating! Or... pick up some unsweetened chocolate almond milk. Put in some splenda, heat it up, and voila! Hot chocolate!

On my 3rd cup of tea today. Drinking the ginger/lemon stuff with actual honey in it- that's what usually helps me with a sore throat, and mine is killing me from all the coughing I've been doing the past few days. The good news is that I didn't run out and buy a big thing of honey. I went to Chick Fil A and ordered a chicken salad sandwich on their whole wheat bread (better than a burger, I guess) and got some honey packets to go with it. So when they're gone, they're gone. But all this coughing is really starting to get on my nerves. And it's painful, too..

Thanks Cat! I did eat a couple of pieces of the Stover's candy .... though technically I guess that is cheating since I have been trying to do just meat and eggs for the most part this week. On the positive side, I wore a skirt today that I was not able to wear 3 weeks ago Hope you get to feeling better soon. I have the blahs today. Need to do some more work tonight but I am tempted to just wait and do it in the morning and go to bed early tonight...

Losses are definitely slowing down. Today's weight 196.4. I need to drink more water and I think I probably need to eat more. For instance yesterday I had 2 eggs and 2 thin deli slices of ham for breakfast. Lunch was the inside of three tacos from Taco Bueno (threw the shells away). Dinner was 3 pieces of SF candy.... cooked some HB patties then could not make myself eat them...

Morning ladies! You think Alan will find us over here you KNOW how men are with directions!

you Alan! but where are you? If you were posting I wouldn't have to talk smack right now!

Tara- we all have those days! you did not cheat and that is awesome! give yourself a pat on the back my emergency go to is the unsweetened chocolate bar (baking kind) with a splash of heavy cream and some splenda. Melt in the microwave and it is like a fudge, sssoooooo good! and it is not cheating even though it feels like it, it is adapting your LC lifestyle so that you can make it work in the long-term.

Cat-So sorry your feeling ill still my friend hoping you get better soon! How is everything else going? How are your baby shower plans?

Lizzie-How's your meat and egg going? and how's the dirt digging?

Tara-- I totally agree with Ammie. You DID NOT CHEAT. Just think of what you would have eaten if you weren't LC'ing...

Ammie-- how are things coming along with PTO? Did you get a chance to talk to the president and explain you don't appreciate them taking advantage of you? Did you beat her up? Just wait til we start getting skinny and taking those muay thai classes-- then NOBODY will mess with us! grrrrr! Oh, have you heard anything about the new job?

Alan-- good afternoon! How's work going? Is the craziness over yet? How's your eating going lately? Are you sticking to the meat/eggs?

Lizzie-- come out and play!



I'm doing better. Still a wicked cough, but feeling a little more alert and not so completely wiped out. Drinking a SF vanilla breve latte (one of my guilty pleasures) and about to eat the rest of my chicken salad sandwich from yesterday. Also brought a salad with me today, so I should be good to go.

Baby shower plans are in full swing; I wish you all could be here! Ams, I know your kids would love the bouncy castle! Well, maybe the younger ones... Most of the invitations have been received, and people are calling, S L O W L Y, to RSVP. I figure they'll all wait til the last minute....


Oh, and guess who's coming to my neighborhood tomorrow???

Cat-WTH?! Protesting Soldiers funerals and now HS students? They are lucky my kids don't go to this HS.. Make me ashamed to be a Baptist! anywho.. Yeah, I told her yesterday just basically that I could no longer bake.. With making cookies to raise money like every night and my daughter's volleyball.. and everything else, I just don't have the time. I know right.. I got the innocent face, but they have NO IDEA! I can't wait til Peanut is born and we can train together, virtually anyways you're my type of kick butt girl!

Alan-still you! yes, I am wicked..

Girl, I'm from the Bible belt, so I'm used to Baptists, but these people are CRAZY. They were here last year for a military funeral, too... I was like, out of all the high schools in America, WE have the highest amount of homosexual students, supposedly? I just don't get it...

LOL I can't wait to see you get mad and go off on somebody! I'd pay money to see that!

I also can't wait to get started on getting back into shape... I'm gathering a bunch of LC recipes and stuff, getting ready to stock the fridge and freezer. I'll give you a list of the DVDs I'll be using when I'm ready, so you can see what kinds of workouts I'll be doing.

Hmmmm must investigate WalMart... I say curl up on the couch- housework can wait! I say this as I'm doing laundry and rearranging furniture... could I be nesting??? Nope! Loser husband is coming tomorrow and the last thing I feel like hearing is a lecture on a messy house and how all Honduran women are wonderful and strong and basically take a lunch break to have their babies in the fields or while making tamales.... *sigh*

The good news is Friday I have my 3D ultrasound for PEANUT!! I can't wait to see him *up close and personal*... well, as up close and personal as you can get through the womb. A few more weeks and I'll REALLY be up close and personal-- trust me, I will NOT be posting those pics onto FB!


Tara-- where you be, girlfriend?

Ams-- YOU BETTER BE RELAXING!

Good morning Ladies

My eating is going well for now, it's amazing how when you fill up with meat your cravings dissapear, Happy Chappy at the moment.

Cat ~ Hope you feeling a bit better. Thanks for the Merlot, much appreciated. Yes, was DD on FB, I would rather shove burning toothpicks in my eyeballs than sit through that again. This was the third time, degree, honours, an now Masters - an this time was by far the worst. The ceremony was about 4 hours and the sound sytem was sooo bad that from where I was sitting I could not understand a single word. Gonna have to think up an excuse next year, maybe just take DD out for supper the next evening.
Who is protesting soldiers funerals ???? Why??? , sounds like a bunch of looney toons !!

P.s Tell the hubby where you come from husbands respect their wives and
support then not constantly put them down!

Lizzy~ Them horns are only for drinking, they begin the even facing up but as the drinks take effect they droop. The photo was taken after a loooong evening.
Hoping your day improved.

Peach ~ you too ! I hope you feeling much better today, a bottle of wine works wonders for cramps, - or so I'm told Yayyy for the loss, Boo for Tom

Tara ~

good morning all! feeling better this morning.. other than the fact that I know as soon as I get to work, I have to go in the freezer my boss text me at ten o clock last night telling me I had to get all the code dates on a shrimp item, apparently who ever did it the first time (I think it was my other boss) did not get them right. And the product was put on hold, and we ended up sending out some of the product that was to be on hold. what a mess! I am trying to stay on a positive note and just drink a lot of coffee this morning still sticking with meat and eggs, although it does not feel that much different because I am not a big veggie person anyways.. but I am still drinking coffee and diet pepsi (1 a day) so am I being true to the meat and eggs anywho... I am down again, so I am super stoked.. am @ 181 this morning couple more pounds and I can change my stats.. I never changed them up through my bad days:blush:

Hope everyone has a lovely day, need to gear up for the freezer this morning..

Alan-I say your DD is wonderful for doing all that she does.. and it is your obligation to sit through them.. as parents we have to sit through many irritating speeches, annoying principals and eventually I hope that I will have to sit through awful master's degree ceremonies.. so deal buddy! so.. have you ever weighed again or are we just throwing that out the window?

Cat-Hope your house cleaning went well, if he irritates you (which I am sure he will) just kick him in the knee cap.. that's what I would do!

Lizzie-Hope your housework went as well as possible.. I did nothing yesterday except dishes.. and that was only because I had to.. lol!

Tara-come out and play

Good morning everyone! Wow, I missed a lot last night. Ammie: Glad you are feeling better and congrats on the losses! Cat, Alan and Lizzie: Hi to all. Congrats on graudation for your DD Alan but I agree they can be very boring. Cat, Your netrition order sounds a lot like mine. I don't know if you have a Kroger store near you but thye run a sale on the Almond Breeze pretty often. Got mine for 1.97 last week. Sometimes the scale is just not my friend ... it is still moving down but just VERRRRY SLLLLOOOOWWW... 196.2.... I really need to get it moving before my mini vacation/CLE course the week before Memorial Day... time to break out the water I guess

Tara ~ Repeat after me ~ Water Good ~ Flavoured Prune Juice bad, A hundred times should do it! Any loss is good.Congrats

Peach ~ Thanks, very proud of her. Please stop teasing Cat, you know at her height it is far easier to BITE hubby on the knee cap than kick him !

Not Weighing lately, just judging how clothes fit, can hopefully go down a size next month.
