✫¸.•°*WIT's Celebrate Stews Birthday in Fabulous February˜”*°•✫
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


WIT’s are more important than work.

Section III.

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

Section 7.9.607
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

Issue 5.21.285
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)

Rule 5.28.974
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

addendum 123.5.62
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.

Positivity counts!

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

Happy birthday stews!! I hope you have a wonderful day :)

Morning anyone :hiya: baby was up quite a bit last night. Thankfully Kyle goes to daycare today so ill get to rest a bit. I also plan on a body weight/light weight workout. I won't be able to run for a while but I will workout :workout:

stews 02-01-2013 06:37 AM

yeah, my very own thread! :p thanks dp!

have a great day to you too and a good work out! I will probably be taking today off from working out and trying to get a few things done around the house this afternoon. I need to make sure the guest room is ready. I know that if I workout I'm less likely to do the housework too, lol. I plan on getting another weight workout done tomorrow morning before ds and his girfriend get here.

Peskie 02-01-2013 06:55 AM

Popping in to say hi to all and happy birthday to stewskie!

stews 02-01-2013 07:33 AM

HIYA!! and thank you.

sooo, I wasn't going to but I ended up weighing again. good news is even with my unplanned mexican dinner last night I'm almost back down to my low. hopefully it will continue downward again for awhile before it fluctuates back up but I probably shouldn't weigh tomorrow or if I do I should expect to be up a little since I'm not eating dinner till 8 or later tonight. it always shows on the scale the next morning when I eat late. I know its not real weight its just how it shows up and will be more accurate again the next day if I have normal eating times.

I am trying to be mostly good the rest of the day knowing we are eating out tonight but if I REALLY want something I will allow it.

stews 02-01-2013 07:53 AM

I really need to remember to go get my drivers license renewed this afternoon. I probably should write a note and leave it in my car so I see it after work, huh?

Peskie 02-01-2013 08:49 AM

loss for January: 5.4 lbs

Peskie 02-01-2013 08:50 AM

good plan!

DisneyPrincess 02-01-2013 09:33 AM

Nice work guys! Looks like we did pretty good last month. Lets make February even better :high5:

stews 02-01-2013 04:30 PM

yes! we are doing great! lets keep it up!

I had a great day at work today. probably the best day of the year so far. I only had 5 boys because 4 of my boys couldn't come in because they are on lock down status (can't come out of their cells). the 5 I had were awesome.

DisneyPrincess 02-01-2013 04:53 PM

I'm glad stews! And for your birthday :birthday:

Stella has been very fussy this evening. Uggg

stews 02-01-2013 05:07 PM

ah, poor baby Stella and poor mama Jackie.

thanks. I'm glad too. they were actually so quiet it was boring, LOL! I'll take boring for a day or 2 though. i don't get that often, lol. and its going to change real quick when the ones that are on lock down come back to class.

DisneyPrincess 02-01-2013 05:59 PM

I think she was so overtired. I finally got her to sleep. I hate to hear her cry so hard and she gets MAD!

Not much going on here. Dh has to work all day Sunday so I don't get my break this weekend. Boo :(

stews 02-01-2013 07:07 PM

AH, BOO for no break. I need to figure out what to do about food when ds is here this weekend. I ended up doing NOTHING after work today other than getting some cash dh asked me to pick up and getting my drivers license renewed. oh and I put one load of laundry in the wash but haven't bothered to move it to the dryer yet, lol.

I do have most the day tomorrow to do some things around here, though so that's okay. ds is going to go to his mom's first and then come here later in the day to spend the rest of the weekend with us.

DisneyPrincess 02-02-2013 07:42 AM

Hope you had a nice birthday stews!

We are getting ready to take Kyle to hs bowling league. I usually don't go but I want to this morning.

Hit a new scale low, officially down over 20 pounds since Stella was born. Now I just need o keep the momentum going.

stews 02-02-2013 07:53 AM

thanks, I did. we went to a steak house. I had steak and garlic mashed potatoes and a salad. and then brought home maybe just under half the steak and about half the potatoes but splurged on creme brulee' for dessert. Liana and I shared one.

today I think I'm going to make spaghetti for dinner with some sort of vegetable. that way if ds hasn't had dinner when he gets here its here plus when dh gets home from his gun class thing it will be ready if he's hungry. then tomorrow dad and L are coming over and dh's parents are coming. Dad recently found out he has type 2 diabetes and since he and L have gone out to eat the last couple nights I decided to make sure I had healthy choices. so we'll have spaghetti as a side dish available but also dh is going to bbq chicken breasts and I'm going to roast some potatoes. probably buy some rolls (hopefully see some whole grain ones that look good) to go with it. not 100% healthy but at least enough healthy choices that they can enjoy it without feeling like 3 times in 4 days they are splurging too much.

I really wanted dh to make clam chowder but the timing doesj't seem right with that with Dad's fairly new way of eating and knowing they've had events the last few days.

I'm going to work out this morning then go get what I need from the store for the weekend then I need to get a little housework done before ds gets here. I'm not concerned so much with him seeing a not perfect house but I do want to make sure the basics are done, especially with dh's parents coming tomorrow.

stews 02-02-2013 08:23 AM

dh got me some pink earmuffs for when he takes me shooting, LOL!

DisneyPrincess 02-02-2013 03:50 PM

We want pictures stews. Lol

Took Kyle bowling this morning and just been hanging out. I'm researching feeding formula and breastmilk because it seems Stella does much better with formula and I don't want to give up breast feeding completely.

stews 02-02-2013 04:48 PM

I hope it works out for you and the feeding, DP. I wasn't able to do both very long but I think they have better bottles to use for supplementing now then they had back when my kids were babies.

I've been getting things accomplished today. yeah me. in between relaxing watching tv :p . I went to the store, ran dd22's phone to her that she left here last night, got spaghetti sauce in the crock pot, changed the bedding in the guest bedroom, vacuumed and dusted the living room, went through the mail on the table (there wasn't much there), put dishes away and put a few in the dishwasher.

not sure what else I'll do. may just relax till ds gets here but we'll see.

stews 02-02-2013 05:50 PM

so ds texted and said he'll be here tomorrow morning instead of tonight. i have a big crock pot of spaghetti sauce cooking. dinner tonight and using it as a side dish tomorrow for everyone. plus, I'll freeze some.

right now its smelling so good I'm thinking about just having a bowl of it and calling it tomato bisque tonight for dinner :p . hmmm, or maybe I'll eat some left overs tonight and save the sauce for tomorrow.

DisneyPrincess 02-02-2013 06:02 PM

That sounds good stews!!

Right now Stella does well when we give her a little formula. She's only had an ounce at a time though. What I'm going to start doing is giving her a full bottle around dinner time. It seems to be when she's most fussy. We'll do that for a week and then ill replace one earlier feeding. Hopefully that will keep her a little more content. I hate to see her miserable for something I can fix.

stews 02-02-2013 06:49 PM

I agree with you. You have to do what you can and there are options in this day and age.

Ended up having my left overs and a small bowl, maybe 1/2 cup size bowl, of sauce. Its yummy.

Going to relax with dh for the night.

DisneyPrincess 02-03-2013 06:47 AM

Dh left for work at 7. I'm going to take Kyle and Stella to the library and then we will visit him at work for lunch. I hope Stella is good at the library!

Going to attempt a workout at nap today. Weight is creeping down :)

stews 02-03-2013 09:15 AM

Yeah for creeping weight downward. Hope you have a nice day

DisneyPrincess 02-03-2013 11:46 AM

Thanks...so far so good :) nap time now!

stews 02-03-2013 09:49 PM

Had a nice time with family all day. Wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. I have a hair appointment that I have already canceled once after work and may not get home before ds has to leave for the airport. I would cancel again but if can't wait much longer. my hair needs done bad.

DisneyPrincess 02-04-2013 06:30 AM

Mine does of but I'm waiting and using it as my reward for hitting 125. 6 pounds to go!
I didn't do great yesterday. I wasn't bad but I was picking a lot. Bored I guess.

I'm having the twins over for a bit this morning to play with Kyle. I'm interested to see how they are after almost 2 months v

stews 02-04-2013 07:58 AM

could be interesting, jackie. I was supposed to get mine cut/colored last week but canceled because of having Jag here. I wish I could cancel again but I really need to get it done now.

I didn't do great yesterday but not terrible either. not bad for having people over all day, at least.

DisneyPrincess 02-04-2013 10:04 AM

Omg...headache! I'm not taking those kids back anytime soon. No way could I do this everyday all day with the baby

amazinggrace911 02-05-2013 06:00 AM

Hi there!! Sorry I haven't been around. It has been a little crazy around here. And my eating has not been good. I have put back on a few pounds.

Keep us in your prayers as we travel tomorrow. My mother-in-law has fallen twice and possibly fractured her hip. She will be 93 in a few days. So dh, dd and I are going out to KC to see how she is doing and what is going on. It's going to be a quick few days!!

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 01:04 AM.
