Hey!!!!!!! Was just reading the other thread!!! The last thing I heard from you was u were selling the ranch and moving to Florida(??) with your Mom. House looked gorgeous btw!

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 09:05 AM

I've still got the same fone!!!! Its ancient now!!!

CCGirl 03-08-2014 02:23 PM

LOL fone!!!!!! So great to hear from you.


Well, none of the houses were to her liking, too far. Then she started 'seeing' this guy who steered her to a property that had been on the market for years and had not sold.

Now she's whinging about expenses and is demanding we move in May, otherwise it will cost her money to have the place managed.

Never mind that the property she sold was a commercial property and to avoid taxes she had to buy another property and rent it for two years.

The guy she is seeing is a former attorney, who had either his license suspended or disbarred (it's very fuzzy) and is finding a way 'around' this, his interpretation of the law says blah blah blah.

After last night's phone call with her coming down on me for not doing things (expectations I was unaware of) and her now not only choosing our place plus setting an unrealistic deadline has DH and I running for the hills.

This guy is going to turn bad and also possibly trying to drive a wedge between her and I. Things are getting bad. DH has a fit every time I call her because she is stressing us out so.

Oh, the drama.

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 02:33 PM

Omg she needs to get away from this guy!!!!! He is totally using her! Preying on vulnernable widows!! Hmm the word scum springs to mind!

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 02:37 PM

I know this is a weight loss forum but i used to like our chats about everything!!!

CCGirl 03-08-2014 03:31 PM

Yeah, that's why I started another thread.

I really don't want to piss her off but I've given up on offering opinions on anything. This guy is her guru now. When he fleeces her then she will come crying. I'm sure him being a lawyer it will all seem transparent and good.

DH smelled this rat immediately when he came on the scene. He did all kinds of legal stuff to 'help' her out and never a fee. There HAS to be an ulterior motive. And his early work experience includes trusts and estates in the banking industry. Go figure.

A good lawyer in South Florida is not driving an '01 Lexus and living in a questionable neighborhood.

She's clueless.............:(

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 03:38 PM

It's awful. I know she's your Mom so you'll always worry. But you've gotta look after yourself too. All you can do is be there when it all comes crashing down (avoiding we all told ya!) Hopefully she will come to her senses before that. As I say she's still grieving so her antenne is probably not what it should be. Hopefully she'll see him for what he is: a plain ole conman!

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 03:39 PM

In bed with fone!!!!!!!

Getting there!!! 03-08-2014 03:45 PM

Ok cos this is a weight loss forum--looking at my stats is depressing!!!!!!!!! Omg i weighed 116lbs!!! ( in my defense i think that was like for a week!) Now it's more like 20lbs more!!!!! Well not quite but gawd nearly!!! I still wear a 4 so thats good but i sooo need to tone up for the Summer!! I'm a squishy 4!!:annoyed::annoyed:

Mar922 03-09-2014 12:04 AM

I am jumping in here to say hi! I miss the way we all used to chat! Even if it wasn't about weightless it was nice to vent about some of our other stresses.

GT I am out of the loop... Are you married yet?

CC how are your kitties?

Anyways I wIll stop interrupting your convo. I miss you guys! you have both been on my mind lately I hope everything is going well!

CCGirl 03-09-2014 02:48 PM

Mar, interrupt away! What are you up to these days? Still in school?

GT in bed with fone just like the old days!!!!!



Now she is demanding we move by June first. That's so not going to happen, I've been selling off stuff like mad and we still have tons to go through.

I don't want to pee her off but I'm getting tired of towing the line, cowing down, and being told I am not doing enough.

This ex lawyer guy lead her down the garden path, conveniently found this house, and fixed her up with people to do work on the place and 'manage' it. Manage an unoccupied house for four thousand a month? Duh, you are being taken!

But I can't say anything bad about him or she will turn on me.

No, she's not grieving anymore, she sailed right on. I was there for the tough stuff, now that she met this guy she's not reliving the past for sure.

Mar922 03-09-2014 07:56 PM

I am still in school but I will be done in May!

I am so stressed with everything and I just can't wait for it to be done. The stress is showing, I have gained 40 lbs since September, its kinda depressing.

Hopefully everything works out with your mum. I couldn't imagine getting ready for a move that far by June! We are looking at selling my place and getting one together but not til Fall and I am already trying to get things in order and we are hoping to maybe move 20 mins from where we are now.

CCGirl 03-10-2014 05:02 AM

Awesome, Mar, you are still with your new man!!!!!!!!!!



Well, last night's phone call was sad to say the least.

Now she's saying things like I sacrificed the sale of the property tto buy you a house, I gave up the rental income for you to come down.

That was not part of my plan. I will not have the guilt hanging over me. Rent the damn thing. Oh, DH was so right, this was never going to happen, and it's not going to end well.

IM2fat 03-11-2014 06:15 AM

Hey guys. . I was just thinking of you all and here you are!! I wanted to pop in and say Hi and let you know that I miss our chats, too. . Looks like everyone is plugging away again.. I'm back on Weight Watchers and have been trying to liven up their board a bit but it doesn't seem to be working ! They don't appreciate my wit and rambling over there!

Just thought I'd say Hi. .I may lurk a bit here and there. . trying to get my stuff in order

CCGirl 03-11-2014 04:12 PM

Ya, that's why I started this thread, miss the old chat!!!!!!!!!

GT why WW?

I've been lazing around maintaining. Everything still fits. I even had a bagel awhile ago.

Of course, the record snowfall and shoveling make it easy to cheat, lots of excersize going on here. It's almost sacriledge, being able to eat bad food and no gain.

I've had a sinus infection/chronic rhinitis since last August and everything tastes like crap anyway, so blech too easy to not eat.

Today I had a turkey taco salad with fresh homemade salsa, cheddar and ranch dressing.

We are expecting 18 inches of snow over the next two days so needless to say I will be getting a helluva workout shoveling out.

I am although we have been together 2.5 years now so I don't know if he counts as new :lol:

I am sorry to hear about your mom! My mom, ms independent I am woman hear me roar, always does whatever her bf says or does when she gets a bf. She has been with this guy for the last 3 or so years and she is kinda coming back to herself now. I don't mean to take away from what you are saying I am just trying to say I understand!

IM2fat 03-12-2014 03:42 AM

Love love love seeing all the friendly avi's! Cc I just haven't had much luck sticking to anything especially with my 4 growing boys . I have to feed em carbs or I'd go broke! Can they eat! I'm doing a low-er carb version of ww , it's just what I can handle. If you recall, I wasn't losing very well toward the end of my battle just maintaining but I thoroughly believe in the hunter gatherer way! Call me crazy!!

Hugs to everyone.

CCGirl 03-12-2014 05:09 AM

IM whatever works!!!!!!!!!!

So glad to hear from you all! I was thinking about Al the other day, I hope she is doing well!

Mar, I hear you on the moms. Mom was raised to be the 'woman', always letting the man take care of things. She never saw her own independent strengths.

I just hope he doesn't take her to the cleaners......

IM2fat 03-12-2014 06:35 AM

I check up on Al every so often but she hasn't checked in since 2012 :cry: I've lurked about here and there over the past few years too and I always marvel at how great everyone is doing. .Lots of peeps coming and going, too!! I'm almost at square one but only losers give up.. in the real sense!!

I am above square one... I am at square negative one!

IM2fat 03-13-2014 03:44 AM

But just look at us . Mar! . Never ever give up! My friend told me one day . . But you're always on a diet - when are you just going to throw in the towel
And accept yourself for what you are- a lovely big gal? That hurt my feelings because I always considered my "fatness" as temporary but here I
Am again . . Still fat but never giving up! I think the day I give up is the day I stop caring and I'm more important than that. So stay fat, my friend and I'll keep working on me!!:p

CCGirl 03-13-2014 05:46 AM

Never surrender! You know you can do it!

aleriaaa 03-16-2014 09:34 AM

Hello my long lost friends!!! So good to see you all still on here!! I'm planning a massive stillmans attack on my fat in the next few months! Baby #3 is on the way, and I have let loose for the last 37 weeks. LOL

Looking forward to meat, meat, and only meat! Wish I could get back in the game sooner with y'all, but I promise - I'll be back!!!!

Hope all is well - ((((HUGE HUGS)))

IM2fat 03-16-2014 11:48 AM
