well.. I took the big leap and signed up all by myself.. at first I wanted D to go with me.. but I thought NO I NEED to do this. So I went for it.. everyone I talked to made me feel comfortable.. and were very nice..course they want your business and all.. and who knows if they are the type to talk about you after you leave.. but the way I see it.. I am there to learn.. and get healthy.. if they don't like it.. they can go away..lol.. this is for ME.. and that's something that doesn't happen around here.. so for ME to get healthy.. I needed and wanted to do this..

Now I will admit.. if it weren't for D going.. I wouldn't go by myself like she has done.... prolly wont for a while.. but once I get my grove.. watch out..

On the way there.. I asked God to be with me and help me walk through that door.. he knows I need this.. he was right beside me

and I truly believe he sent me an Angel.. when I met D.. .

and with you.. and Jaimie.. and everyone else in LCF .. we will make our goals..

I am excited to see what lies ahead in my new life..

But Cookie, I hate looking like this too much to be worried that I look like I don't belong there. Everyone has to start somewhere, sweetie. Just think, when you were a baby, if you were worried that you looked like you didn't belong, then you never would have struggled to take that first step.

What kind of soreness is it, Lisa? A tired sore? A muscle soreness? Would you classify it as a good sore or a bad sore?

I'm worried about that shoulder of yours . . . I don't want to hurt you . . .

Not until you're ready . . . you said you wanted to hit the gym harder than I want to hit the gym. I'll be there for you as long as you need me to be, but I'm sure my holding you back will get on your nerves eventually and then you'll be able to go by yourself.

You two are going to be fit, fit, fit!!

Hope your shoulder feels better. I bet with the more weight you lose and the more you muscle you gain, that pain that is with you in the mornings will be alleviated!

I'm worried that her shoulder is more than a weight related issue . . . it's more about mechanics for her. Possibly strengthening her shoulder girdle will help some, but until she stops using her shoulder the way she uses it, I'm afraid she'll always have the pain.

And yes, Lisa . . . we're talking about you behind your back/in front of your face!

Naw, I have a clipboard as per your suggestion with what we need to work on. I'm thinking that since this is the end of the week, we'll do your upper body workout today (UBWO). On Monday we'll do your LBWO (lower body workout) and on Tuesday we'll do cardio and delts (shoulders).

Here are some tips for getting smoke out:

Instructions.Things You'll Need:
•Baking rack
•Baking soda
•Box
•Crushed charcoal
•Old sock
•Fabric softener sheet
•Cedar chips
•Resealable plastic bag
•Clothespins

Several Options

Option 1

Place a baking rack in a box and sprinkle baking soda around it. Place the book on the baking rack so it is elevated and no baking soda is touching it. Close up the box and allow it to sit for several days. Check on it regularly and refresh the baking soda once a week until the odor is gone.


Option 2

Put crushed charcoal into an old sock and put it in a plastic bag along with the book and tie up the bag. The charcoal will help to eliminate the odor. Leave the bag sealed for three days. Check the book to see if it still smells and repeat if necessary until the odor is gone.

Option 3

Place three fabric softener sheets in an airtight bag along with the book and allow it to sit for 48 hours. The book should smell fresh and clean when you pull it out.

Option 4

Put a couple handfuls of cedar chips into a resealable plastic bag with the book. Set the bag in a cool dry area and check on it in 24 hours. If the odor persists, seal it back up for another 24 hours.


Option 5

Hang the book from a clothesline with clothespins on both corners on a warm sunny day. Leave the book there for three to four hours and let the sun do the work for you

Well, you got the 75cm one, right? not the 65? It should be as big as the one at the gym. And SAND? I'd take it back and try meijer or target or dicks or someplace else.

Glad you made it home okay. What's for lunch tomorrow after the gym?

Okay, but when I was sitting at 329 pounds I was using my stability ball and it never popped. A few pounds over 300 will not hurt the ball at all.
