Good morning! Scale back down today, nothing exciting to report. My Gracie has been complaining about her vision so she needs to get an eye exam. I think I got glasses right around her age too. My vision is horrible but DH's is perfect. I was hoping the kids got his vision!!!

Everyone have a great day

Good morning! Well, look at it this way: you did what the title of your journal said you would, you got healthy! So now you can just step it up a notch and strive for goal! Just because you are having the same issues that everyone who has ever had a weight struggle doesn't mean your journey isn't any less than another. You are such a help to everyone who has questions and your support of others is invaluable!

Good morning ladies! Scale stayed EXACTLY the same this morning. I was surprised because I overdid it a little bit - no sugar or starch though! I went to the funeral home last night for a 30 year old who I have known since I was 16 years old and he was 7. VERY sad. He has two little kids that he left behind. It was a very bad situation and heartbreaking. The burial is today. Please keep his family in your prayers.

Gracie~OMG, a 30 year old! I get sad every Sunday when I read the obits and see young ones pass. Life is so fragile. And even more heartbreaking when it's a bad situation. Hugs to you and prayers for everyone who knew him, may they find comfort and peace.

Good morning ladies!!! Scale down -0.8 this morning. TOM is due like right now too I'm crampy and tired today. I'm supposed to go out with the girls tonight to a jewelry party and then the local pub. Should be fun. I also exercised yesterday. I walked for 40 minutes - even up this HUGE hill!!! My butt/thighs are killing me today Then I did 50 crunches and 5 push-ups. Push-ups are a killer for me! Today I'm going to attempt a few more but my arms seriously hurt today only after 5 :blush: I know I'm a weakling I kept it pretty LC yesterday - no sugars/starches. I ordered some of the pellets off of nutrition yesterday so I may start up a new round after Easter. Decisions, decisions, decisions......

Good morning ladies. TOM is full force and kicking my butt. Had a nice weekend and last night went to a "pink out" at school for a woman who passed away from breast cancer. It was very nice and our school raised almost 1700.00 for her family. I did walk for 45 minutes yesterday - I did 30 minutes on the track and then walked up a huge hill. I am sore today Today I am pushing water because TOM is making me puffy. Weight was actually down from last week so I'm happy about that. Everyone have a great day!!!

Glad to hear the fundraiser was a success. Good going for keeping up with the exercise despite TOM. Congrats on the loss from last week!

Good morning Scale went down today by -0.2# - so pretty much stayed the same. I ate good until after dinner then TOM cravings got the best of me I was craving chocolate so bad and all I had in the house was Cookie Crisp cereal Oh well, what's done is done! Hoping to do better today. I am going to try and get a good walk in - but it needs to stop raining!!! I had to take Erin to the doc yesterday and she has an ear infection - poor baby!!! The tylenol seems to make her feel much better. She's on antibiotics for 10 days - hoping it clears up fast!

Hey Gracie. Good job on the scale. TOM sticks! I am suffering symptoms big time! Chocolate sounds good right about now, lol. Sorry Baby Erin isn't feeling well. I hope she feels better soon. Christian is sick with an ear infection and is on antibiotics for 10 days too. Poor babies.

Have a great day, and do the best that you can. No worries.

Thanks Meek Poor Christian - ear infections are so painful! Erin is on amoxycillin for 10 days and the dose is 10 ml, 2x per day. It is a total PITA to get her to take it!! I have to disguise it in chocolate milk

Yes, so sad. This woman was about 50 years old with a husband and two children in college. Cancer sucks.

Christian is on Amoxy for 10 days; dose at 5ml every 12 hours. I have to follow up with a pain reliever too. He was in a lot of pain last night . I've been off of work for the past 3 days dealing with this. He is scheduled for shots on Friday, but I'm going to reschedule. I can't deal with another fever right now.

Praying our babies are healed every soon.
