Yes Diane I am loving holding the baby so much. I've seen him the last two days in a row. It is hard to put him down!! He's just started a tiny little smile when he looks at you.

Well, day 7 of 2012's new diet!! I've lost some, not as much as I hoped of course, but still on track. I skipped going to the Mex place with the gang today. I miss it!!!! But I had eaten all my calories by 1 PM today so had no choice but to stay home Maybe next week. I have not had any alcohol since NY Eve. Really want to lose 10 by 18 Jan. I even went to the Fitness Center yesterday for the first time in about 4 years.

Hope you both had a nice weekend.

Thanks Diane, I'm trying real hard with the trip approaching fast!

What kind of weather are you having in Texas Angie?? We have been breaking records here, like 54 degrees in January. Usually lots of snow and so cold by now. This has really been a blessing this year. Supposed to be nice tomorrow too. I hope to get a walk in. Was disappointed tho, up a little bit in weight today and I have not eaten ANYTHING bad. Really, I am sure I didn't mess up. It better be gone tomorrow. I did eat some leftover taco meat that may have held the weight in because it was salty. But I have definitely not gone over 900 calories in any given day in over a week and also had no alcohol. I'm just hoping for a big loss tomorrow.

UGH, work is busier than ever. Ever since my boss' son took over, it seems the workload has doubled. It has actually.

Still not on plan. We are going to try to do some bike riding this weekend. Maybe that will motivate me. Good job Kris for your dedication. You are doing great!

How are your kiddies at school Diane? Do you have a good group?

Was 54 degree here again today. They say the cold is coming in tho. I ran on the treadmill, went and babysat for Jamie and then took a short walk outside for 20 minutes. I didn't lose any more weight today, must be in a little stall. Doing a fast today and tomorrow. Think I'll feel better then.

Hope all is well with you both!!

Doing OK here. Not weighing however - I am having trouble re-motivating.

Weather has been weird here too.. High 50's and occasional 60's here, then 30-40. I don't care for the up and down, but we did have 1 or 2 days of weather in the teens and I don't like that at all! I am sure the cold is on its way.

We have the "teens" & 5" of snow coming tomorrow! 50's today so walking outside; then tomorrow staying in all day to clean and pack for the trip. Still on track, fasting yesterday and today. No more loss yet. Went up a couple lbs for no reason so still fighting to recover from that setback. I have definitely had NO carbs in 2-3 days. Something will break.

Have been looking some at property in Ft Myers, just off the beach. Pretty expensive but it is warm there!!!

Have a good day and stay focused!!

It is exciting that you are looking! I was in Fort Myers a number of years ago! Have you been there recently? We stayed somewhere off the beach and drove to the beach daily. I remember lots of side streets with free parking and beautiful beaches. The water was pretty, calm and had lots of sand dollars! I don't remember much more than that, it must have been 12 years ago or so, but I do remember liking the beach.

We are about a mile or so off the beach and have to drive to go. The one advantage of not being on the beach is being away from the constant change of neighbors ( tourists). We have minimal of that where we are and it is more of a home as opposed to a hotel. ( of course it is a disadvantage not to be able to just walk out your door and be there!) Good luck with your search!

Yes Happy Friday! I'll second that. I'm headed out to plow thru our 5 inches of snow and go babysit for Jamie while she takes her dog to the dr.

Have a great weekend and stay focused! I'm planning on stayinig on plan pretty close but have a dinner tonight. My fast went well, lost 4 on it.

I am kinda of 'naturally' fast-5 ing myself. I feel so much better going to bed/sleep if I have not eaten in the evening. But I've hit a stall (actually, it's cause I over indulged on the week-end) so it's a setback.: I have been really disciplined on the treadmill tho so I didn't think it would be this bad but I'm back to what I was a week ago. So hard to keep it off. Some of my friends tried that 17 day diet and were successful. Maybe a good thing to use to mix it up a little.

Good luck!!!

Thanks Diane. Im hoping to get the holiday weight off before summer. There is no food in the office apartment except for diet coke and water. I really didn't eat lunch anyway. I work my lunch so I can leave early. We usually eat around 5 or 6 so It is working great.

Hi Ladies! I hope you have both been well. I am back from Mexico now. It was a great trip. I highly recommend the Blue Bay Grand Emarelda in Riviera Maya. I did eat and drink too much of course, gained back the 8 pounds that I had lost. I figured that would happen - all the sugary sweet drinks. Not te mention fantastic food!! Very good. Now back to the treadmill. I start babysitting Kavyn fulltime Feb 6th. Looking forward to that.

Glad to hear you had a nice trip! Don't worry about the food, you had fun and enjoyed yourself!

I haven't been on much, but getting to the point that I have to do something. Several women at work are doing weight watchers ( on their own) and hopefully their talk will inspire me. Sometimes, often, I get complacent about the weight but my pants can't get too much tighter so I fear the end is near.

Enjoy babysitting. Gosh, I love babies. I was so happy and relaxed when I came home from the nursing home one day after I just sat and held a baby for about an hour and a half. My normal buddies were sick, and the nurse holding the baby had something to do, so she asked if I would want to hold her. Stupid question

I get complacent too. Last night I had a huge portion of Lasanga (taht I even made). There was no reason for me to eat a double portion. This morning I had a half a sausage biscuit but eating dinner at some steakhouse. I am up in weight again due to continueing to eat AFTER the vacation is over. It's all habit with me. I have been using the tread mill, but will miss today; dentist appt and have to get going early. I wont do it after I am all cleaned up & showered. But it is supposed to be warm here, so maybe a walk outside. Hope you both have a graet day.

I haven't checked in because my computer has a virus, I'm hoping to get it back today. I hope he can restore all of my files.

Good morning,

Hope all is well! Angie, hope your computer is finally clean and work is going well. How is babysitting, Kris? Did that start yesterday?

Well, starting again with dieting. They are all on the band wagon at school, so I guess I will join them. Most are doing a weight watchers thing, so I am trying that. Here we go again

I am loving the babysitting!!! He is talking to his little play house and smiling right now. I love having him, however it really does tie you down and you can't run any errands. I end up sitting on the couch a lot just looking at him. I am not getting much done like I thought I would...... Plenty of time tho I geuss. He is such a sweetie!

we have the seat part of her car seat that we can strap in. We leave the base hooked into her seat, but I could strap this one in and still be legal and safe. Really cold this week tho. I dont have the stroller part but I could have her bring it when the weather is better.

At least I am eating less with him here!!

I guess it does keep you from going out to eat!

Our weather has still been pretty warm here, at least for winter. The afternoons are getting into the 50's. Strange. There is a chance for a bit of snow/rain today, but I can't imagine it would lay. Not complaining at all, but it has really been a mild winter.


Angie

we had decent weather right up until yesterday. Now snow and only highs in the teens are on the way. I have say we had it pretty good so far. The best winter in a long time. I'm heading down to hit the treadmill. It is stil hard to make myself do that. I'm just not a fan of exercise anymore. But my eight is still really high so I've got to do something......

Have a great day Diane! Hope you are having a good day too Angie!
