~Celebrating Christmas with the WIT's, December Edition~
WIT made simple
1) no hard * fast rules, we do "whatever it takes"
2) we have mini-challenges, not required, but participation encouraged (see our siggys at any given time)
3) for those in loss mode, our goal is losing weekly, doing "whatever it takes" & maintaining for those in maintenance
4) YOU tell US what you need to succeed & we provide it (encouragement, buttkicking, a true beating....) & vice versa
5) All welcome! Come on in!
It's very comparable to Calvinball. (in otherwords, anything goes because peskie says so & we’re not above making it up as we go along)
If somebody says it's "in the rules" and you can't find it here, don't be alarmed, some rules are hidden in the subsections. Just trust a WIT
Cuteness shall cover a multitude of sins. (good thing WIT's are cute)
WIT's are above getting sick unless it's required for getting out of bad things
Mini-challenges: lets make this easy-do what we tell you when we tell you
Yes..It is now required that people wave before leaving. Wendy is a lion--hear her be bossy.
Wendy'ism: Confusion about things that are not confusing, such as thinking of Massachusettes and Maryland as the SAME state while knowing that they're not.
awww = seaweeds
heehee stewskie = gerber streaker
subsection 11.6.208 dictates that if you wave, you must also talk. A wave by is unacceptable.
You must have 3 conversational posts after posting that you're leaving (bye #1, #2, #3 is not adequate) you are only exempt from this rule if you've posted at least 3 times with no response & at least 3 minutes since the last post, as evidence of an attempt not to leave and proof that everybody else left you, not vice versa.
sub section 3.28.1618 stewardship....friends of stews
foods you're not suppose to eat all have mold & maggots in it so leave it alone
black shoes are okay in summer as long as they sufficiently cute!
Wear sandals all summer and you'll be fine unless you have some cute open toed shoes and those will okay if I approve them first.
NOT patent leather, despite Wendys idea of a summer shoe
subsection to item 4 on the WIT rules for the smiley? That it can be used in any case of something approved of or to encourage, atta girl, OR even a real birthday when all other smileys have been exhausted, there is not an appropriate one or it is just otherwise deemed necessary or wanted
With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated & happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, Good grief....I'm so smart
we can agree to disagree!!!
Unless it's peskie, then you must agree. (in the rule book, ya know?)
peskie is allowed to talk in 3rd party talk.
If a snort escapes when trying to prevent laughing out loud, it’s called a snortlet.
Don’t feel guilty for playing here while at work, as long as you’re getting the job done.
Fluttering is wit wings cheering you on .
Halos don’t work for Tammy-Ro
It’s okay for peskie to steal smileys
page 9, par 1.fb
WIT's are solely responsible for requesting removal or addition to WIT mails at any given point
Page 12 para 4.12
"If you go away (unless it is a romantic getaway), you must find a hotel in advance with wireless connections and check in that way. If there is no hotel in the area with wireless, then you are going to a too remote location and that is not permitted".
page 25 para 1.4.4 on how to reset a circuit breaker....(insert running away smilie here)
Peskie add to the rule book under how to check a circut breaker....Getting rid of varmits 101....TIA ….choleric’s could graph his habit's and haunts for you, ask her...
Page 25 para 1.4.5 on how to change filter in AC. Also change once monthly during the summer season.
Chapter 2 para 1.1.2 Gains are water, losses are FAT!!! :
the rule book says unless you ask permission and there is not another WIT out you must check in at minimum daily Yes, it's in section II part A.
section 3, Part A, line 89 right after Gain = water Loss = fat
the only pounds that count as lost is the ones subtracted from starting weight and or siggy weight. So if I gain 3 and lose two I can;'t be claiming a 2 pound loss. I gotta claim a 1 pound gain. Making sure we are all on the same page. Losing pounds from a gain DO NOT COUNT. :trips and falls off soapbox::
I think no matter what type of program you're on, portion control has to be in there somewhere or you'll just keep losing the same lbs over and over. Ultimately we all have to learn that we don't NEED certain foods just because a particular program says we can have them. If they aren't good for us, we need to learn to live without them
rule 11.7.407 states stews is the boss of Wendy when it benefits peskie
You can’t really be a WIT unless you’re missing your sanity (peskie excluded, of course).
Wit’s aren’t “normal”
no no no, pictures don't lie EXCEPT when they make us look BIGGER than we are. there is no making us look smaller, nope nope. you are hot
It’s okay to call Lisa doody
ALL WITS ARE HOT PERIOD END OF STORY!
WIT’s are more important than work.
Part A. 89. WITS always come first no matter what other obligation, appt, minor or major emergency you may have. Penalty for igorning this rule is major boot kicking from WIT on Boot-kicking duty. If said WIT in violation is offender then boot kicking will fall to volunteer WIT (s).
PM when you want to talk about someone!
Once a WIT always a WIT unless said WIT cuts ties voluntarily by publicly rejecting the WIT group. Then WIT status is revoked. And the recent amendment also adds that Peskie will get her scary spiky boots out, I will make the rounds in the WIT van and we will COME PERSONALLY TO YOUR DOOR to kick some sense back into you? So see you have no CHOICE in the matter. You're here to stay. That is all.
first duty of Pam and Landis is to check in with us when she gets to work? Okay, get the rule book out somebody.
“I may have to SHUT the computer down so I don't keep comin' back to it every few minutes though while getting things done around here, ” These words are against WIT principles and a direct violation of rule 1.25.355
the new "Catch" diet! You throw your food up in the air, and you eat everything you can catch before it hits the floor! but throwing the plate is a complete violation of the rules! You can only throw the food, but you must throw the entire meal at the same time! You burn more calories that way!
The 2nd Monday of each August is official make it up as you go along day....everybody is challenged to add one rule to the book during normal conversations.
Landis gets the award for most rules during first challenge
Pam attends next WIT adventure.
Shopping counts as approved method of aerobic activity.
(Looks in the WIT rule book feverishly). Um lemme see yep whining is allowed!!!!
Is it sewious enough for a pm or can I be publically punished?
Only if it is about Landis. Rule book page 30 Para 3.4.1
2 wit's aren't allowed to be out at the same time!!
a good 5 second rule should be applied before anyone quotes me...
True Wits always check in because it says so in the rule book. (email counts!!!!)
no stinking test. It's not in the rule book Tammy-Ro
If you don’t check in while away, it will be awhile before you will get to go anywhere again
I have another new word to add to the rule book, please!
You know how sometimes a smile just has to turn into a giggle....I hereby deem that a "smiggle"!!!
I second the motion. :smiggle: I need a gavel....
89. WITS always come first no matter what other obligation, appointment, minor or major emergency you may have. Penalty for igorning this rule is major boot kicking from WIT on Boot-kicking duty. If said WIT in violation is offender then boot kicking will fall to volunteer WIT (s).
WITS have to come before Kimmer! Rule check please!
The scale is a tool, not a report card.
I sure am glad it's only a TOOL and does not rule my life! (This should be in the rulebook Peskie jus' sayin') The scales do NOT rule our lives
Yapping is encouraged...(Rule book addition please) sec 429
Again, we DO celebrate , clap for , high-five and sing victory songs for any WIT that succeeds no matter whether we can relate or not and we usually can relate anyway!!!
Landis is boss of self, and no one else. Except when RG and Peskie override simultaneously.
WITS feel better and have more energy when they exercise
I usually don't WANT the crap until I tell myself I can't have it and push myself to a time frame on hitting goal. Then I eat crap and binge and gain quickly. When I tell myself I CAN, I usually leave it alone. (unless it's a big craving and then it's actually worth it and I don't overeat it, but savor it and don't gain anyway
Odd work schedules need to be in the siggys, so we can “keep up” landis says so.
I suggested we change the word "cheat" to "carbed up" in the rule book. Seconded on 1/6/2006
don't regret the gain. Don't KICK ME!!
The important thing is fessing up, giving and getting support and not let a slip be the end all of my weight loss for the rest of my life. I'm probably gonna cheat again but not for a long time. Oh and another thing I am not saying cheat anymore. It is forever known from this minute forward as uping my Carb intake!!!! (Peskie could you add this to the rule book under gaining is water? Thanks.)
read the book. It will be very difficult to be successful on low carb without reading the book of your plan of choice.
Page 59 para 6.9
If you have a dream/passion you should go for it, it IS possible but only if you want it BAD!
Page 62 para 11.1.2
When landis does not want to eat something weird is going on (Peskie add to rule book)
We come before feeding the family. In the rule book, page 250.
once you get your SSP you let the person know who sent it that you got it and to email you too. Once everyone has their SSP we do a reveal. It's in the rule book already
Pam is the leader in our verbage.... She earns a crown for that.
Page 283 para 12.3.4
200 calories at 2 pm is NOT the way to lose weight
If you ate what you wanted and are not hungry that's one thing (200 calories or not--I do not take issue with calorie restrictions) but you're hungry so obviously you haven't eaten enough.
Des…bah, bad mojo. I always said if I ever stalled I would kick up my cardio and/or switch things around depending on what I had been doing. Well that's what I've finally done. Added Easter per Tammy-Ro
Robin is who to go to when you want diet advice on ANY plan I am a tellin' you! She is da bomb! not ANY plan...just kimmers plans, atkins, CAD, Stillmans, fasting and some WW.......but atkins atkins atkins she knows backwards and forwards.......
South Beach, PP. Neanderthin, LFL, and the rest she dunno diddly squat.....
wipes sweat off brow as remembers addition of this to rule book quite sometime back
Don't beat yourself up. Once you know where it went wrong, you have the power not to repeat the same mistake again….Maria
Racing is for WIT’s. You don't have to actually know anything about it. Just yell Biffle or Cutie Butt now and then and pick a car you like that has pretty colors to root for
Peskie, addition to the rule book although it may already be in there. "No WIT is allowed to brag on something without giving at least the important details".
Reminder to landis
I can't wait to go to the gym again
Did I REALLY just say that? I'm terrible sick I just know it
You need to find out what works for YOUR body
any differences be kept between the parties with a difference and nobody else brought into it.
Peskie is allowed to talk to herself as much as she wants to.
Anything that let's peskie do something other than the normal activities, learn something new and get outside her little world is on the allowed list.
What's work interfered stuff? I thought that was against the rules (as Maria caught on quick and added this)
as long as u quote u are always on topic
Being to blame isn't always a bad thing. You have lots of entertainment value.
Break big goals into small tasks….a little at a time. It builds up to success!
New addition to WIT rule book: NAPS are always allowed and encouraged without prior planning or negative ramifications of any sort. Period.
True friendship doesn't give up
Page 5.25. para 1444
Always blame it on the peep that is not here! Put that in the rules please.
RG made sense once, but messed it up by saying that needed to be in the rule book. That makes no sense.
To lose one pound, in lieu of dieting, hit refresh button 6 million times
Those that don't learn history are doomed to repeat it
For maximum cute factor, lean forward, tongue in roof of mouth
if dh is home so I should be too (stews and all), regardless of how much time just taken off
page 2.19 par 2999 Once the avatar has been changed, I have to leave. new rule I just made up that only applies once. wcwendy
root beer is the new energy drink
negative posts must be offset with positivity
WIT's should participate in celebrating victories as much as supporting needs
WIT's have book addictions
WIT's rule, work 2nd
skipping meals can and often leads to binging later.
women gain a lot of times during the premenopausal times and post and how it's just sort of a "given" that it will happen. However, some women do NOT do it but keep their weight under control their whole lives though it is definitely more difficult. Why should I just accept that it's a part of life? I don't want to and WILL NOT accept this. Just like being on certain kinds of medicines can contribute to gaining. Some people do not gain in spite of that. No it may not be EASY but few things in life worth having are.
Indies and keeping up aren't required, but don't ask for recaps....others have to read twice that way
It's all about our choices....each decision leads to consequences, whether positive or negative and we have the power to control those choices, they just become more difficult in certain circumstances, not impossible
ADHD is contagious….tread lightly
Never EVER forget to title the WIT thread after Chewie when it's her birthday week. Consequences are banishment from the thread for a time period to be decided by current boss of thread unless it's Lucy and she is so ADD that it is excused.
The only consistent rule is that Calvinball may never be played with the same rules twice. Scoring is also arbitrary, with Hobbes reporting scores of "Q to 12" and "oogy to boogy
Thanks Peskie! I was justo oping to start a new thread. So how was your weekend? Does C feel like part of the family?
Nights are getting longer and mornings a lot harder. 2 more weeks of this and then at least I can get up with Kyle and take my time in the mornings. And I'm excited for this weekend because we are taking Kyle to see Santa :D
hello!!! I'm counting days with you, DP. I look forward to seeing Kyle with Santa pictures!
Hey there!! Had a really busy weekend. We had our Sweet Adelines dress rehersal on Saturday and the Christmas concert on Sunday. Plus I worked Sat and Sun nights. Busy but totally fun.
Up two pounds this week to 186. Not upset about it though. Just thankful I haven't put back on everything I lost while I was sick. Just need to get focused and start losing again. I'd love to be at 180 by the end of the month. it's feasible, but with the holidays I just don't know. We'll see what happens!
Well interesting night. My neighbor across the street came over for help. Her next door neighbor left her 3 kids with her because her 4th was having major pains and needed to go to the ER. My neighbor had to go to the airport to get her dad and wanted her kids to go so she asked if I would sit with the other kids. She never expected to be watching the 3 for as long as she was. So me and Kyle went over there for a bit. It was fine but now I'm exhausted!
Morning. Tired today. Dh played hockey last night and didn't get home until 12:30am and had to shower and stuff. I was up for a while then and then I had a bad dream and just couldn't sleep. The good news is that tomorrow I only have 1/2 day :) 8 work days left :jumpjoy:
Do we have Kyle/Santa pics yet?
Nope- we are taking him Saturday! Ill be sure to share.
We are also going to be putting in the car seats and packing the hospital bag this weekend. :love:
You know what would be cool? If we both brought our little girls home on the same day! :love:
dp, its getting SO close!!!!!!!
time is weird, huh?
dd23 is a cleaning maniac! maybe I DON'T want her to move out...ever, LOL!
Send her over here!
Morning. 1/2 day today. Kyles buddy is coming over at 10:30 so ill have the twins come around then too and then JJ comes at 11:15.
Kyle was SO excited that Santa came and left gifts in his shoes for st nicks day. Seeing his excitement was so fun. I can't wait to see him Christmas morning!!
Was up most of the night with cramping. Feel like TOM coming. Maybe it means baby is coming! :p I can wish right?
I didn't even realize it was St. Nicks day. we've never done that. as a kid or otherwise. dh's family didn't either. nobody around here even talks about it, lol.
I'm glad he had a nice time with it. Christmas is going to be so much fun. I LOVE that age at the holidays.
jealous of your 1/2 day. today could be interesting. the Main teacher I work with won't be there today or tomorrow. tomorrow the other teacher won't be there either. and we have a terrible crew of boys at the moment. like worst I've seen it all year. one of the guards told a teacher that this is the worst she's seen it in 20 years. yikes!
Yikes stews! It just doesn't seem to be getting any easier :( I hope it's better than expected.
I hate to complain but I'm just feeling rotten lately. It's not even just normal pregnancy stuff..well it is...I'm so tired I can hardly stand, I have foggy head, rib pain, etc... I seriously don't know how I'm going to last another month. I don't want to complain because I like being pregnant but it's getting really rough. :(
don't worry about complaining to us. that last month is tough, especially. hang in there. it won't be long.
and no, it is not getting any easier at work and there are a couple warrants out for boys that are no easier than what we have now. oh well, it is what it is.
heading out again. I went and visited my daddy and L after work. now dh, dd23 and I are meeting them for dinner. bye
All I wanted to do tonight was take a bath. Kyle wouldn't let me and dh didn't intervene so we took a shower together. I'm a little irritated. I want to go to bed but dh is clueless today :down:
did you tell him what you need? sometimes what seems so obvious to us isn't to someone else. Hope tomorrow is better for you. if not, tell him flat out that you need some time to do such and such. *hugs*.
i just got home and am sitting on the couch with the heating pad. so glad my massage is tomorrow. I'm a week later than I've been trying to go so I'm really really ready.
Yup I told him. Told him before dinner and then again after dinner. Men sure are clueless :rollseyes:
SO glad it's Friday. 6 days left! Woot!
Taking Kyle to a light show tonight
well then...throw a sock at him, :p . Hope you get some relief today.
enjoy the light show. that sounds nice. I have friends playing praise/worship music at a coffee house this evening but i probably am not going. I want to, but it starts the same time dh gets off work. he's worked so much I'd like to see him for a few minutes before he has to go to bed again and he's probably going to be working all his days off this week. I have NO idea when we are going to get our shopping in this year. I don't want to take time off work but I'm starting to wonder if I might have to to work it around his schedule when he gets another day off.
We just had a talk and he told me to just tel him when I need/want help :doh: I HAVE been! Oh well....
Boo..it rained on our light show :down: made pizza for dinner and now dh and Kyle are redoing his train track. I'm going to try to get to bed early and really relax this weekend. I know I don't have many left
bummer about the rain. haha, I'm sorry he wasn't hearing you when you were telling him what you needed. silly boy! get some rest tonight, DP
sooo. had 12 in my class today (to start with) and 3 in lock down in their cells besides that. I'm sure glad they couldn't all come in..yikes! I was down to 9 before the end of the day. almost had a fight but he left the room when I told him too ... thank goodness!
I threw 2, lets home one of them knocked some sense into him.
Well Kyle slept in until 8:30. That was nice. Taking him to see Santa today :)
have fun with santa!
He was great! And he was so excited because Santa was giving out bells this year. We just watched the polar express yesterday and he said he wanted a bell from santas sleigh! He said he wants to go back to see him. Good thing we have dhs Christmas party next weekend
its so fun to see their excitement
