March Daily Chat Thread

This thread is a place to share whatever you want to share--weight stuff, daily stuff, random thoughts in your head, anything goes. That stuff you'd like to say, but really don't think it warrants a thread of it's own.

The wording above to start the thread was scandalously plagiarized from Tina (mykid'steacher) who wrote it for the April, 2012 DailyChat thread!

WOE: JUDDD
Start Date: March, 2009
Reading back over our February chat thread, many hugs going out to budds. Get well wishes, plus get well wishes for several loved ones.

Here's a link to where we left off in February.

Can you believe it's MARCH already? And just HOW did that happen? I am not ready for it, can't we push it back?

I won't link here, but today's Mercola newsletter again has the topic of Intermittent Fasting, a very positive, encouraging article. Anyone interested could probably find it on that site. Title is " How Intermittent Fasting Stacks Up Among Obesity-Related Myths, Assumptions, and Evidence-Backed Facts " and it's for today's date.

I promised on the March goals thread that I was going to keep up exercising some every day. I've been an every-day gal now since the 10th of Feb. Feeling good. As Richard Simmons says, "Gotta Tone, Gotta Tone!"

And Merclal has a lot of references listed too. I thought his article on sulfur was interesting too.
I am happily maintaining and after an interesting day food wise at the Houston Liverstock Show I am right where I should be on the scale this morning. I opted to walk back and forth from the parking lot to the building and that is a long jaunt so I think that helped the scale non bounce this morning. Another reason to try to add walking to my routine. Does not help with weightloss for me but it does for maintaining.

My Mom is starting JUDDD tomorrow!

After showing my lovely Mom the Horizon show last night, she tells me this morning that' she's ready to start tomorrow (Saturday). She thinks she'll do EOD, and have the same UDs and DDs as me, so we can support each other, but if it's not manageable at first, she may join me every other DD. I told her I thought that was a fine way to ease into it if it feels better for her. She's 79, and VERY healthy, so I don't think there are any reasons for her not to try it, but I definitely don't want to her to have any discomfort. I'll keep you all posted on how she does!

That is so cool LCG! I have been talking to my mom about it, keeping my fingers crossed she will jump on the bandwagon too. Hope your mom finds lots of benefits from it

That is wonderful piece of news LCG. I hope she enjoys many of the benefits,

Shows how impressed she must be with your great progress too. We are waiting for your celebration of 100 lbs, you must be so delighted with yourself.

Whistlin' well done on the exercise front. I am trying to get get into the swing of things too. I am only aiming for 3 classes a week but I will try to get in a bit more movement on the others days too. I am inclined to hibernate in the winter....

Adi good work on the walk from the car park. I know what that can be like from our county shows here, and Texas is a bit bigger than Devon.

Thanks Cindy.
Will get in some more exervcise today and tomorrow as I am about to leave for a 2 day craft show. Unloading, setting up, standing on my feet all day for 2 days and then packing up and loading is a workout in itself.

LCG that is so exciting about your mom. I hope she loves it. My family thinks I look great and they know juddd is working for me, but they think it's kinda kookie. However, now when my mother calls to invite us over she says "Will that be and eating day?" I think it's cute. That's what my co-workers say... "Is today a food day or a celery day"

I finally got the nerve to explain what I am doing to my co workers. They actually did not give me a hard time about it as I thought they would. So last week one of them asked me if I could go to lunch, if it was my eatin' day lol

I find that most of my co-workers are very supportive. There is one woman who has a bit of nastiness in her tone when she says..."I'm sure skinny mini isn't eating." But she's quite overweight and DW says she is just jealous.

Thank you Flutter. I try not to take it personally. At first I felt upset by it, but it's really just showed a lot about her character and now I interact with her only when required. I acually think she probably has quite a lot of issues and I like to minimize or elimate all kinds of drama and gossip in my life so keeping a little distance is a good thing!

I just heard the cutest thing on the news. There is a huge surge of babies due in July and August- this is directly connected to Hurricane Sandy and the fact that hundreds of thounsands were without power for up to 2 weeks. All the couples having girls said they would not name her Sandy!!!!!

It makes me a tiny bit jealous since for DW and I it's a big production for me to get pregnant including a big expense, but I'm more ready than I've been in a long time so we just have to "pick the donor" from a bank in California that has been recommended by my OBGYN and go from there.

You're planning to have a baby?? Yay, that is so awesome! Super excited for you!

Eta I also have one co worker whom I haven't talked to about juddd. She's very touch and go, one day she's your best friend, and the next day she's a snake. So don't trust sharing personal things with her.

Totally understand. Worry seems to be a mom's middle name...sometimes it's the 1st, middle and last names! Everything will turn out perfect, keep the faith and you know we will all be rooting for you and super excited!

Adi, I hope the goats are being very cooperative and showing off their good looks!

Yay for Moms starting JUDDD - what an encouragement.

Jen, I hope the 15K was a big success.

Cindy, oh yes, hibernating - seems so natural in the cold months but then I'm not ready for the activity I want to do outdoors in the warm months! (Also not ready to be seen!) So hibernating has got to be out!

Personalities and telling about JUDDD - just saying you are choosing to lose weight is a huge thing to be willing to tell others, really enough to say. After that, change the subject unless these are very close work friends. The kindest gift you can give in conversation is to stop and ask about the other person's life instead.

Ugh, going into Hot Topic with the daughter I'm miserable when we do that! SO LOUD. But happy you got shopping done. I have actually bought one tee shirt there, and a guitar pick. But usually I am hanging around the doorway while she braves the music and shops! Wonderful to get a ring set you can enjoy and have that off your mind knowing you love it!

Awwww..... a baby... ... Sigh. powder and curls. Booties. All best wishes! Just keep up excellent nourishment and gain weight on a schedule. Don't do like I once did and gain 10 pounds super quick - that's what's hard on the back. Slow, steady, planned weight gain with nutrition in mind, that's the ticket. Awwww.... rocking. lullabies.

Carly, that's wonderful, exciting and I'm sure more than a bit scary! I wish you an easy success.

LCG that's great to have your mum on board.

Respect to all the fit, exercising JUDDDers!

Adi, I hope you've had a good day and are not too tired.

Yennie, so glad you recovered for the 15k. I hope it went well.

I'm hoping it's easy for you. We were "surprised" with Keira. DH is a cancer survivor and I had had a couple of miscarriages, so we were pretty sure it was going to take outside intervention to get and stay pregnant. We decided to try after we'd been married for a year (we were together for several years before we got married). We never used birth control in 5 years. We went away for our one year anniversary (April 26) and found out May 5 that we were pregnant.

All that to say, I'm hopeful that your first time works and you have a great experience. There's nothing like being a mom.

All that to say, I'm hopeful that your first time works and you have a great experience. There's nothing like being a mom.
Until they become teenagers. Then there's really nothing like being a mom. Oy vey. Lol, but it is all very worth it

I haven't been in a position, should we say, in almost 20 years, to know if I'll get pregnant easily, but I sure hope so!

I was the therapist at an adolescent rehab for 2 years... O.M.G! Almost every grey hair on my head, I earned working there. With those kids, however, the parents were worse in some ways and that put me off from wanting children for a long while.

I strictly treat adults at this point in my carrer and that is mainly because I don't want to deal with the parents. Although I have some family sessions with some of my young adult clients and lets just say that meeting some of those parents really explains a lot. It is so sad. I think my career has made me jaded in some ways, but I know there are a lot of really awesome parents out there, too and I remind myself of that whenever possible.
