Nikki~ Thanks, you have a great weekend too!!!

Amber (Asmallerme)~ Still haven't found one yet..

Amber (Bejewelme)~ Oh I know. Frustrating to say the least. Still haven't found a bra I like. Boy do I wish I could have justified buying the VS bra yesterday. I loved it and it fit so good. Someday. Until then I may just have to get some standard ones at the lane bryant sale JC was talking about.

jimnjen96~ So glad that you have joined the story of my journey and that you are inspired!!!!

Danielle~ Thanks sweetie, you too!!!

So why is it that its 1:30 and I'm just updating my day.

Wow what a great start to a FUN filled weekend. Took Marah to soccer this morning and she scored 3 goals!!! I was so proud of her. Then we went to the grocery store to get all of the yummy ingredients for our LC food that we are taking to all of the picnics this weekend.

Then home and it was fun in the Sprinkler with the girls. I was pooped after that and ready to call it day. But nope it was down to my Aunts for a bonfire and cookout for her 50th Birthday!!! Did good. I had one hotdog without the bun. It was good.

My rings are spinning on my fingers today. I think its about time to get them resized.

More fun in the sun with great friends tomorrow. Then hanging with the family in the evening.

Monday~ Jasons annual memorial day family reunion.... Then a cookout at my Aunts in the evening.

I want to make sure that my uncle and dad now how much I appreciate them for serving in armed forces. I appreciate all of the men and women in the armed forces.

Melanie,

Hope you are enjoying all of your festivities this weekend!!! Sounds like you had a good, busy Saturday.

Just wanted to comment on the bra situation; I myself have had luck with Frederick's of Hollywood. In comparison to VS, I think they have a better selection (range of sizes---I am a 34 DD, sometimes DDD). We used to have a store where I live (Scottsdale, AZ) but it's moved. It might be worth looking in to if you have one near you.

Anyway, have a wonderful Sunday, and I'll be talking to you soon!

Maxi

Hope your having lots of fun time! Sounds great!

FYI on the lane bryant sale. The $25 off of a $75 purchase is only online. In the store you get $25 real woman dollars to spend on a future purchase. My sister went to the store and got the future purchase thing. I LOVE THEIR 5 WAY CONVERTIBLE BRA! Totally comfy, lined so no nipping , and formed to make a great shape. I just always use mine without the straps and it stays perfect.

Now I'm thinking that I should have got two in 42 DD and two in 40DD. Hmm....

Yanno, I have tried so hard to like LB bras. The plunge is my favorite but I can never get a good fit with any of them, I end up with total bagginess in the top part of the cup. So frustrating! I may go back and try again when I have nothing else to do and with no teenagers in tow!

Bummer about the LB bras not doing it for you . I only really wear the one kind, not a plunge (I'm pretty old fashioned ) . I wear the 5 way convertible bra. I hope they never discontinue it!

Yeah I was pretty bummed too! I used to work there and I'd do fittings on all sorts of shapes and sizes and get so confused why they wouldn't fit me! lol Of course all the times I always went to try them on was when I was either in a time crunch or had kids with me yip-yappin.. I'm gonna give it another whirl and see if i can make it work. I also love the "balconette"..both that one and the plunge give this ole girl some lift and make me look kinda like I did in the ol' days!

Hi, Melanie!!

Hopefully you were able to get a good workout in today...I need to step it up in that area. I would like to do an exercise DVD: do you work out with any DVDs? I've heard that the Jillian Michael's 30 Day one (I can't remember the complete name of it) is great.

Have a happy Tuesday! Talk to you soon.

Maxi

Hello everyone. Went to grocery store and stocked up on our favorites. Had pizza bake tonight for dinner and it was yummy but I am so thirsty.

Maxi~ Didn't get my workout in. Theres always tomorrow right. I keep meaning to look into that DVD as well. Its called the 30 day shred. A friend of mine is doing it on here and having great results.

JC~ Thank you so much sweetie!!! I'm so glad that I can be inspirational. Believe me its been a struggle. I had thoughts of pizza all weekend from our favorite place. I resisted though and had our pizza bake. Not as good as the real thing but hit the spot.

Hang in there lady you are doing well. Oh I hear you on the Pizza front I used to eat sooo much of it and occasionally miss it. Tell me about your Pizza Bake because I may be able to eat that when I enter P3 of this woe's Protocol? I usually make Linda Sue's Deep Dish Pizza but it can be tedious getting all the ingrdients together but hubby 's it(and so do I ) so I make it. I actually like it better the next day cold. I am soooo proud of you for resisting the temptaion to eat the pizza and make your own, I am sure that yours tasted so much better, made with love for yourself as well as your body.

Have a wonderful Wednesday Melanie!

Its very easy ladies.

Brown a lb of sausage, drain the sausage and put in a baking dish. Add the small can of hunts tomato sauce. (we have found one that is flavored with basil, oregano and garlic) toppings of choice. Then cover with a layer of mozzarella cheese. Put in broiler on high until cheese is melted. about 8 minutes.

So the whoosh fairy came, not as big as I would have liked, but still good. 204.6 - 56.4 total this morning!!!!

Marah's last day of school is today and I'm helping with her party. I will be back on later.

Maggie~ Everytime I get the urge for pizza we have to make it to get rid of it. I ate so much pizza before that its amazing it wasn't growing out of my ears. We always have the ingredients on hand just in case.

Amber and Jayce~ Morning. Oh pizza how I loved it. Thats been the hardest.

WTG Melanie!!!!! Hey those oz's add up to getting closer to ONEderland!!!!! That pizza sounds do easy and doable for me I will keep this recipe. I know I can eat it on P4 on this woe. I guess if we can lose with just eating the toppings of the pizza it is better for us. I know the bread would always leave me sleepy and gasey KUTGW sweetie, you are getting there.

I am so glad I can help you too along my journey. It hasn't been easy, but I just have my eye on that Onederland prize!!! Try it, its delish!! It will become a favorite guaranteed!!! Hubby is doing great but having a hard time with portion control and will sometime eat way too much, even if its on plan food.

My hubbs has issues with portion control as well.. I can't remember how he did when we did Atkins together before..I'm hoping that this will help curb alittle of that appetite for him I worry so much about him! I don't need him keeling over before 40 all because he didn't wanna take care of himself KWIM?

Definitely taking all the motitvation and running with it! I haven't felt like this in such a long time it's weird. A good weird! LOL
