~May May Be Filled With Goals Fulfilled for WIT's!_
 
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

4.24.692
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.

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.

6.16.206
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

stews 05-05-2013 08:09 PM

welcome to May, LOL!

and thanks. I like the pictures too :D I thought I'd hate the one we took of us because of having the motorcycle helmet on and such before hand, but even though my hair doesn't look good, I think it turned out good :)

amazinggrace911 05-05-2013 09:49 PM

Lol. That's funny! I never even thought about it being a new month! Boy are we slow!!!

Watching Valentines Day right now. Haven't seen it in a while.

Have a good night!!

DisneyPrincess 05-06-2013 06:24 AM

Morning.
Having my coffee while Kyle sleeps and Stella is in bed talking to herself.

Rainy yucky day here so me and Kyle are going to make a bird feeder I think.

Lucy 05-06-2013 07:51 AM

Good morning! I'm a busy bee this week! :newbie:

Lucy 05-06-2013 07:53 AM

Was just reading some of the WIT rules. Sad that so many of those people are gone :sad:

This one really brings back memories!!!

"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"

stews 05-06-2013 08:01 AM

good morning. another beautiful day here. wish I could stay home and spend it with dh, lol. oh well. off to work shortly.

I brought over my post from the last thread in case nobody but peskie saw it. you may not be interested but I at least want to pretend you are :p .

here are a few pics I took at the grist mill we rode up to. brought home a bag of fresh ground corn meal. now what am I going to do with it? lol. they said on their site they give samples. the sample was HUGE. like probably at least 4 cups worth of meal in there. basically its a brown lunch size paper bag with just enough room left to roll down the top of the bag a 2 or 3 times so it wouldn't spill. wow!

dh and me. not bad for a picture I took myself. excuse the flat helmet head hair do :p

by the way, Char Bears favorite driver is Biffle and she thinks Cutie Butt is "too old" for me. :hyst:

She apparently thinks I look younger or he looks older because we're about the same age and daddy is much older :laugh:

stews 05-07-2013 07:56 AM

good morning! LOL @ peskie and cutie butt being too old. I don't know these people, really but that is funny, anyway.

dh has one more day off then back to work for him for 2 days then 2 nights. no plans this afternoon really. guess I'll see when I get home. not supposed to be as warm as it has been but is still supposed to be nice so maybe I'll get to have some porch time.

have a good day everyone.

Fairy Godmother from the play is sick. This is NOT good. She is a major character. :(

stews 05-07-2013 03:04 PM

Uh oh, I hope she will okay, Lucy.


Whew, what a day! I have succumbed to stress drinking stews style. Vente frapp. I rarely get them 2 days in a row and certainly don't get ventes *blush*

amazinggrace911 05-07-2013 03:54 PM

Hey all!! Just sitting here relaxing while dinner is cooking. My dd wanted a pierogie casserole tonight. Really should have made a salad, but I don't have any energy.

Have a wonderful evening!

stews 05-09-2013 08:08 AM

good morning everyone. hope you all have a wonderful day.

thank you for the sweet post

and Char Bear looked at it when she was playing on my laptop and said "Mommy, your friend posted something really sweet, listen to this" and read your post to me. :love:

stews 05-12-2013 09:45 PM

you're welcome. I am just so happy for you all :)

DisneyPrincess 05-13-2013 06:01 AM

I was coming to see how Peskies first Mother's Day was?! I'm so happy for you :)

We had a good day yesterday. Didn't do anything special but got lots if extra hugs and kisses

Busy here since the movers come a week from today! Eeekkk! I can't believe we move next week. As Kyle was playing with the boys in the pool across the street yesterday I got really sad. We have such great neighbors and this is such a nice area with so much to do. I'm going to miss it. I am anxious to start our next adventure though.

Diet/exercise is going well. Hit a new low and am looking slimmer. My size 4 shorts fit thou tight. Just going to keep doing what I am and still hoping to hit my 119 goal by next Wednesday.

stews 05-13-2013 09:58 AM

good morning. I so enjoy sitting here in my jammies this morning knowing I would normally be at work but I'm not today :p .

dh is sleeping in because he has to work graveyard tonight to cover someone's shift. later we are going to go shooting. not sure what else, maybe out to eat at a pizza place we like that is over by the shooting range.

yesterday was so nice. we went about 1 1/2 hours away to meet up with dh's family for dinner at Olive Garden. we got there about 2 1/2 hours early and met ds at a park and walked around visiting until time to meet for dinner. then ds's girlfriend met us at the restaurant also. was so nice to see them. we SHOULD get to see ds more often, he just started a new job in Oregon about 3 hours away, I think rather than Los Angelas that is 24 hours away (driving), lol. I did miss the girls being able to join us. dd22 had to work all day and dd24 couldn't get home.

weather isn't so great today, but I'm still going to enjoy every minute of my extra day off today :)

DP, I can't believe you leave so soon! I hope you find lots of fun things to do with the kids and get to enjoy the new area too.

Boy, did I pick the right (or wrong) time to peek my head in to see how Peskie's first Mother's Day was!! :stars:
