Bringing this question back to the forefront....I think its really important but I dont have the answers. Can anyone help IM2 with this? Lisa probably could with her background, if shes up to it. and Kathy, aren't you a nurse too?

Can they run vitamin checks or something?

hello everyone! busy day here! But I wanted to make a few minutes for myself so I could check in!!!

Down another 1/2 lb!! 134.6 - I weigh to the ounce because it's more motivation for me. Really I have been reading the good Drs. book and I seriously considering the Stay Slim eating plan when I get to goal - still undecided though!

Lisa - I can't believe how sick you are! That is so awful please take care of yourself and get plenty of R&R!!

IM2 - Way to go wearing the tight shirt I thought about doing Zumba but unlike you - I have a bubble butt that shakes quite well:blush: I wouldn't want to scare anyone!

IM2 - I have had those thyroid checks - what about other hormone checks? Two months is such a long time - I would be frustrated as well!!!

You poor thing!!! I sure hope you get well soon! That kind of sick is miserable!

It must be catchy since you and Lisa both have it!!!

OOo.. GT what are you doing to us. . Torture. . pure torture, I tell you!

Lisa: Don't worry about anything when you are sick. Being sick negates anything you may or may not eat or do.. Just get better. .

OK. .so I'm back from the Docs! OMG. .I especially hate their scale.. I threatened to take off all my clothes if it didn't register properly. According to them, I was 7 pounds heavier than what I've been whining about. .O well. .I am not going to obsess about it all afternoon. . .but OMG. .

Anyway, They are doing lab work..a baseline blood, thyroid, glucose levels or something or other. .I have to fast for 12 hours beforehand so I am going to try to go in the morning. Not sure if I can because I am the only one working tomorrow (at my office). .depends on the wait . . its always busy first thing. . Anyone with medical knowledge.. do I need to lay off the vitamins that morning, too? No Coffee? I forgot to ask that..

So I guess Wine is out, too?

I am! Although I have been a manager for so many years, I don't feel like it anymore... They might do some hormone levels depending on her age.

Wine is definately out... I always get fasting blood work and always sneak and have a cup of black coffee, but I might hold off on the vitamins.

Hello Everyone !

I am so sorry for all that are sick- Please get in plenty of fluids and don't worry about sticking to plan- most important is your health - I know it's a bummer but you can jump back on when you are well again !


I am 252 today I am glad I didn't do the refeed

So I thought this loooooong week couldn't get any worse...all work crap! So I actually left a little early today and since the roads were bad decided to stay off the e-way and take the back roads home. So I'm just going along, taking my time and wishing this cop would just pass me, when he pulls me over! Well, seems he must have had a slow day, ran my plate, and discovered I had a warrant out for my arrest in another city for unpaid parking tickets! Well, it wasn't just a co-ink-i-dink that the city was where my daughter went to college over five years ago!!!! Seems she racked up a ton of parking tickets when she had one of my vehicles at school! Soooooo...now I have to drive to the local police department three hours away to pay my bail and set a court date!!!!!! Thanks God he believed they were my daughter's because theoretically they could put me in jail!

Now, I live in a rural/small town area, but really...don't they have anything better to do!

Sorry for the long story, but I am still not calmed down yet...I think I am going to pour myself a glass of red wine...this cup of tea is not taking the edge off... My only fear is that wine usually makes me hungry and I don't want to sabatoge my weight loss..albeit as small as it is!
Kathy

GT - cute pic!

Kathy - You're daughter is GROUNDED! (Even if she already has kids of her own.) What an awful day!

IM2 - Remember the cardinal rule. Never ever weigh in the afternoon. You should break the 2nd cardinal rule and up your stats and 3 days from now you will have lost the 7 plus 3 more! Psyche yourself out! I would say no to the vitamins. Let the results come through in your natural state. I too have succumbed to the mornng coffee and didnt lie about it. They wouldn't take my blood. (this was w/ cream and s&l, though so black might be ok)

Nermo- that is fantastic!!! Congratulations to you!!! You can do this!!! Must feel great!

msgirl - congrats on your pound down too!!! WTG!!!!

just a quick ..hafta finish making my kids dinner (tacos. . .wahhhh) and then I'm off to the wellness center for my orientation. . I hope they don't try to weigh me, too! I've had enough of the scale today. . Egads. .what if they want to measure my fat or something? I would die. It'll probably be some muscle bound, overly hunky guy trainer type too. or some cute perky blonde that I will want to squash with my big ole clod hoppin feet!!! I'll let you know which route I take.

Kath: so sorry for you. .but this is Michigan. our cops have nothing better to do. . and yes. the college thing comes back to haunt you years later. I once got stuck in the teachers parking lot at a big college starting with the letter M. . I had to pay 25.00 to get out! They trick you into going in and then won't let you leave!!! Errr. . have some wine for me too
