Okay you HAVE to be Farrah -- it is an unwritten rule that the woman in the group with long, full blonde hair has to be Farrah! Don't worry about what the scale says -- just keep eating healthy low-carb and working out like you do and everything will fall into place. I love how Tony is so proud of all the progress you have made -- he's a great guy for sure!

My Tony and I are going holiday shopping and then to see "The Silver Linings Playbook" (can't wait) and then we are going home to make a low carb feast. I found these great recipes from the Barefoot Contessa (from the Food Network). We're making NY Strip Steak sandwiches with homemade mustard/mayo sauce (using low carb rolls of course) and an eggplant gratin (which takes like eggplant parmagiana without the high-carb breading on the eggplant). I counted up the carbs per serving and they came to 18 -- so maybe I can squeeze in a glass of red wine or a low carb cocktail! I usually make a vodka gimlet with fresh lime juice and splenda.

Anyway -- happy Saturday to you Amber and all your friends on this board! This is the last weekend before the big holiday crush begins. Although I have to say -- I love Christmas shopping, which is weird, I know.

I finally got some things yesterday too for the kids, and my one niece and nephew are done, he wanted an old fashioned etch a sketch! LOL

So had my weigh in I was down 2.5 pounds that was serious low carb and workin out like a nut, so 8 in 2 weeks, I will take that!!! Our team is in the lead by a landslide!

So last night leg cramp city, OMG every hour they were flying in I was dying I literally wanted to cut my legs off, I never felt pain like these I was crying I was like Tony help me, finally at 2:30 I came down to the couch so I would stop bothering him, I would heat up the heating thingy I had and lay with that til it would stop drift off and then another, both legs, mainly left, sometimes the front of my shin, sometimes the calf, OMG it was the worst!!!! Thank God today was not a work day I am beat, I feel like I went through a war!

Get some broth, salt or potassium into your system. Cramps are awful!

Congrats on winning the weigh in again at the gym!

Amber, eight pounds in two weeks is fantastic! As for your cramps, have you tried diet tonic water? Chicken or vegetable broth works really well too. And I think you can buy potassium supplements right at the drugstore.

I need to get tonic water, stat!! So far so good I am totally wiped from that muscle relaxer I just want a good nights rest tonight, that is what I am hoping for!!!! Damn things, I need to be viligant about taking the supps especially with all this extra exercise and trying to eat low carb, I felt like crap today! And my weird vag bleeding is back too, like really heavy since Friday night, I never have that! I swear I must be going through the change too on top of it all, my OB said since I started so young I will probably go through menopause younger too! Ughghgh

Last night no cramps!! I loaded up on supplements shot of tonic and soap under the sheet! I didnt want to take a muscle relaxer unless I got a cramp, cause they wipe me out! So this week I am going to be really low carb so I can eat what I want on Thanksgiving and if I gain I gain, it will come off, but I am going to be eating some darn stuffing! LOL

Short week, 3 days yippee, Bobby gets out tomorrow at noon.

Bobby played me this week in fantasy football and beat me little bugger!

Have a good week!

Sorry to interrupt... just wanted to tell Amber that I just read here somewhere that drinking a little pickle juice may stop the leg cramps. I was having them all summer and eating potassium and magnesium supplements, but they didn't stop completely. Finally started getting some extra salt and they went away. I suppose pickle juice would be salty.

Carry on. And don't mind me lurking here.

Going to get stuck over lunch again, I am so sick of my lump! Got all my workouts in and now have to prepare for the bloat of Thanksgiving, but I am going to enjoy and not worry, but Thursday will be the only day I eat, then that is it!

I wish everyone a Happy thanksgiving with their loved ones!!!

I love power shopping solo on Black Friday -- you can get alot more done if you are alone I think. My Tony drives me crazy when we go shopping because I like to look around and hunt and peck while he just wants to get the heck out of the store!

Hope you and your family have a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving!

I think I'm gonna venture out at midnight, the question will be what to hit first...kohl's or the mall. ...I'm not sure if I really have anything to buy though... My kids are getting to that boring stage

Can you believe that a year has gone by??!!! I remember last year with all of us and our shenanigans.... so much has changed, eh? Anywho, I am thankful to have you as a friend, thanks for hearing me, listening, and as always giving me really good advice when I need it!

Enjoy your holiday. Every morsel!

I love all my LCF gals, we sure have been through some stuff together that is for sure! So turkey day I am going face first into the stuffing and I am not going to feel bad about it, I will be crying next week, but I cant wait for a day to eat and not worry! Tonight shopping, D Kohl's is my fav, we are finally getting one here the closest one is like 15miles away so that is my first stop, then the outlet stores I love!!! I am hoping they open at midnight! I have no idea what I am getting my family must give me ideas today! It always ends up with everything I see for me!

They did all this testing on Autumn, and tried her on some meds and she was doing terrible so they tried putting her on Prozac honest to God, she is a different kid, I said to Tony I am not big on drugs for kids but she is night and day I am so happy I hope the weekend continues, she talked she was so engaged, so sweet! What a Thanksgiving miracle for sure! I made Autumn Apple salad for today with her last night to take.

Other than that looking forward to being with the family!

WOW busy few days I hope everyone had a good holiday I ingested way too much pecan pie Oh man I love that!! LOL Went shopping from 10:30 pm -4:30 am on Thursday-Friday got all my stuff on my list, and braved the crowds, nuts the people out with tiny babies and kids!!! Got all the stuff out of storage to wrap, today the carpet cleaners are coming and tonight we are having Autumn's B-day party, the menu is pepperoni pizza, mussels with white wine and garlic, shrimp scampi and old bay wings, LOL What a menu, I said I guess its easy we are calling the Italian place down the road, and she requested an icecream cake! More carbs today, all that weight loss will be a huge gain, but it is what it is! I have been working like a dog here getting things done, OMG having 2 extra days was the bomb! I ruined my carpet in my bedroom with creams and oils so I am hoping the carpet cleaner can get these spots up, I was such a dork putting pale white carpet in there. Where I put moisturizer and perfume on are all these spots we treat them and they come back so I am hoping that gets fixed.
Putting the tree up and doing the lights as well, so keeping busy! Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Sounds as if you are having a fun, but productive weekend.

Happy Birthday to Autum. So glad she is a happier little girl these days.

We got our tree up yesterday. It looks quite nice, I think. However it is very sunny and warm already today. It doesn't seem like holiday weather. I'm going to go swimming in a bit!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hugs to ALL
