I love the drama! Deacon He's somethin! I can't picture him on Who's Line... not at all! I think the combo of the actors makes the show.. it's so fun! Yeah I'm bummed about having to wait 2 weeks for that & Revenge.. Boo!

The Luke & Tracy thing is just hilarious...the mere fact that you couldn't get two people more UNalike..and they are both sarcastic is what makes it. I'm sure the show is having a blast bringing in all sorts of past actors now that soaps are almost on the brink of extinction.. Gotta love Duke! I was always a Sonny kinda gal. And loved Brenda and him together. Sara Brown as the original Carly with Jason... great chemistry!

Good Morning Danielle~ it's almost February and I'm hoping for a change in the scale myself! One thing I remember about JUDDD, it can stall but always goes

Have a great day!!

Also re: GH and the vampire off shoot. Remember that? Lucy Coe is back and thinks she's seeing vampires from 'Port Charles'. Of course these characters have long moved on and so they put her in Ferncliffe (the show's mental institution). She tried to drive a stake through John McBain's heart...she thought he was Caleb, the vampire king.....funny stuff.

I love Nashville! OH I should mention I love The Following! Honestly, I am shocked they can show that much gore on TV! I have to make sure my daughter doesn't walk in. She gets nightmares easily, but I LOVE THE SHOW! ON the edge of my seat, PLUS I love Kevin Bacon (Footloose says it all!)

You're so right about the scale! I'm hanging on, I promise! I love my rotations and love my freedom. It fits too well with our lifestyle.

HA! I remember the vampire storyline.. Wasn't Kelly Monaco with Caleb in that story before she came back as whatsherface? .. I love Caleb/John McBain...he reminds me of Ian Sommerhalder (Damien from Vampire Diaries).. Ahh yes, the lovely Ferncliffe. Dangit, I'm gonna have to start watching again!

Successful DD. 360 calories.

Today is clean-the-death-outta-DD16's-room.. I wish I had a gas mask I'm terrified of ending up with what she had

I've been challenged to get in at least 30 min. of exercise for the next 5 days.. I think I'm ready to do this thing!

Weather is back to cold.. well, as cold as it can get here 30-somethin.. Back to 70 by the weekend!

D - Did your DD16 go back to school today? I think I would stay away from her area for a while longer. Start by Lysoling the HECK out of everything when you do!

And REN I can tell you. I think I saw Footloose in the theater 20+ times when I was a teenager, I loved it that much!

You guys have me wanting to tune into Gh this week. I haven't watched it for years. Kind of forgot about it. Carly and Sam and Jason were my favorites. As well as Scorpios daughter I think. Last time I was watching I think she was being framed by another dr.

Oh and footloose.... Love that movie.

Monica~Yes she went back today. She's at work right now. I spent the entire day in her room deep cleaning everything... she's asthmatic so it's been a real fun day up there... NOT! The things we do for our kiddos!

Melanie~Thanks hon! It would be stellar if I didn't have to end the month (tomorrow) with a weigh in after an UD (today).. I'm sure I'll be up "something".. at first I got kinda excited thinking, Hmmm maybe I'll get away with losing a little over 3 pounds when looking at my stats..then I remembered today was an up day.. Oh well..

I have cleaned and scrubbed and washed all day long. My back hurts, my hands hurt, and I have a headache. I am gonna sleep well tonight! The positives; I believe "the sick" is out of this house, I am caught up on all my chores so I get to "play" now, and while I was vacuuming I found myself grateful again that I was able to spend an entire afternoon cleaning without another care in the world..no homework of my own, etc.. The negatives; I didn't get to spend as much time reading my hilariously funny book, and I'm probably going to be sore in the morning and hobbling around like a 90 yo

I was so busy today I totally forgot to eat lunch. Now this process would be awesome, say, on a DD So now I am extra behind on calories.. Hhhmmmmm might be fun, I can maybe splurge on something fun today!

14 days til P!NK

Melanie, yanno I would do that, however... my last UD weight in Dec. was 231.. and then I had the weirdo bounce up to 235 on Jan. 1... I'll just roll with it and take it like a woman whatever the scale gives me. February is gonna be a much better month hopefully!

Morning Ladies!

OMG. My. Back. I was thinking last night that my back was just overworked from all the cleaning I did, being hunched over and scrubbing.. Well, seriously, it feels as if I've pulled something. Just freakin lovely!

Anywho, so Jan. is fiiiiinnnnaalllllllyyyy coming to a close.. Phew! That was a rough month that I am happy to leave behind. I am going to count my final weight for the month tomorrow, the 1st since it'll be a weigh in *after* a DD.. Melanie, now I totally get what you were saying last night..my bad!

DD today. I think I'm gonna do a potato day. I haven't decided yet. So far I'm just sittin here with yum coffee and I'm happy. So awesome to never wake up starved anymore!

The plan for today: Read, Read, and, oh, Read!
I'm almost done with my book, it has been such a fun book! Gonna try and get my back feeling normal cause right now it hurts. Alot!

Thanks Melanie.. I was pretty happy about today's weight after an UD..it's been a long time since I've had a trend going. Excited to think that I'm getting back into the pre-Vegas/sick/Christmas groove!

Posted this already in a couple places but want it in my journal so I can be reminded just in case I start to lose focus...

---Well, January was not a very good month for me weight loss wise.. but I admit that I did learn some things about myself. I learned that I AM capable of sticking to this despite setback after setback. I can now see that I do want to honor my health and my success and will do what I need to and not be derailed by what the scale says. It will NOT dictate my moods, self esteem or the kind of person I am. I think the difficulties I had this month is the first time EVER that I stayed committed to my plan regardless, and for that, I am pretty dang proud of myself. Total win in my book.

Thanks Janet!

Having a freezing day.. brrrrrrr!!!!! My feet feel like iceblocks right now. Gotta love the "DD freeze" This along with my hurtin' back is not good...

So far all I've had today is coffee w/ sf peppermint creamer this a.m. and some popcorn this afternoon..was feeling sorta noshy and rather than dive head first into the Famous Amos sitting in the cupboard

20 min. walk today. I probably shouldn't have done it due to my back and all, but got home from dropping DD at work and just went for it despite the pain. Not breaking any time records but at least I got some fresh air.

You are doing great Danielle! You had a really challenging January and you've stayed on plan the majority of the time. And you've learned that you can easily maintain when the time comes! It's definitely a win.

Thanks Ladies! All of you helped me to keep my sanity. Well, what's left of it already.

My back is still hurting. Spent the night with the heating pad, seemed to help some so I could sleep...

Pretty good DD yesterday... I ended the day with 442 calories. I went over my max by 7 cals.. Drowned myself in water til my eyeballs were floating, too.

UD today. I think we're going to dinner.... Maybe a movie? ..guess it depends on how I'm feeling.

February's here! Crossing my fingers that this month turns into a really good weight loss month... I need to see some good progress on the scale, pretty pretty please!!

So here's the scoop with numbers......

Total lost for January: 3.6 While shocking (read: disappointing) it's still progress I suppose.

Goal for February: 227.0
-----------------------------

2/1..... 231.8 .. UD
