Morning all! Just a quick minute to say hello! I am done with my workout here at the Y and now we need to dash home, shower, and head to MA for Easter weekend. Hopefully DH will do the driving and I'll have some time to catch up with you all.

TTYL................P

Good Morning!!!

Hope everyone is doing well this weekend. Temptations all around us.

My plan of attack is to enjoy but "sample" and then fill up on veggies.

I maintained again this last weigh in which honestly I consider a victory. So for those of you struggling in this month, you are not alone.

Have a great weekend!!!!

I've been gone a lot lately. We've been looking at a new vehicle and when I get a "project" like that I throw myself into full research and obsession mode! Just got a new Honda Odyssey ex-l. Yep I'm living the minivan dream.

I had a slight loss this week but my monthly goal hit about half. I've not been focused and not gotten in the workouts I wanted.

And me and Reese's peanut butter eggs have a bit of a thing going on lately.

I think I might do my smoothies for a couple days. They make me feel good but I just don't have the commitment to do them longer.

Off to the treadmill!

Sorry to hear that your foot is still bothering you. My PF dramatically improved when I had the cortizone shot and started using orthotics so I hope you have the same success! You really will be able to walk around pain free someday.

I dunno, I hate self doubt!!

Can you walk the 5K without injuring yourself? If so, why not? It would be a fun family outing. Is it going to hurt you? Then skip it. Not every race is going to be a PR. I know you can get your mojo back, girl!

Hope everyone has a great day today!! Back to workfor me.... but since its my friday.....

Take care all!

Pam, thank you very much for jumping in with the question of the day yesterday!!

My scale issues continue. The new one arrived, and I compared the two. Yesterday the new one did show a weight that was 1.5 pounds less than the old one. Today I am heavier on both scales, but the difference is only 1 pound. I am really not sure what to believe. I also am constantly gaining weight. All very frustrating.

Anyway - here is a qotd for today:

How difficult will it be for you to withstand all the Easter goodies that the holiday weekend will bring with it? Do you have a strategy?

Mine is to avoid temptation. I already got a small portion of my absolute favourite Easter candy. I will get it out on Easter Sunday and will eat it over the next few days without counting it. The whole portion has about 400 calories, so it won't be a huge damage and it is only available at Easter. So it's a treat that I decided to splurge on!! But that's all I will eat - no further candy!
Hope that you are feeling better, Magdalene!

I think your Easter plan sounds perfect. I have a bit of my favorite candy and will work it in my points allowance. I'm not going to go through life depriving myself to reach a number on the scale. I can make treats and a healthy lifestyle work together. (even if it does mean losses at a glacial slow pace! )

I have been struggling this week with a stuffed nose and sinus problems. At least it cleared out of my ear so that doesn't hurt anymore.

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy Easter
Hope you are feeling better soon, Dona! Happy Easter to you, too.

Safe travels, Pamela!

Add me to the list of folks who just found March to be a tough month. Between the winter doldrums and a big plateau I just found it hard to be excited about doing any of the things I know need to be done. I am hoping for a better April for sure!

Happy Easter all!

Hi Guys

Hope you're having a good Easter - been out shopping this morning (we're 5 hours ahead of you Floridians at least) and you'd think the end of the worl was nigh!!! Shops in the UK have to close on 2 days of the year - Christmas Day and Easter Sunday. Peeps were out today panic buying because they won't be able to get anything tomorrow!!!

Well, I have to say that March has been my best month so far, I set myself a target of 7lbs, and so far have lost 10 (and there are 2 days left!!!) I've been really focussed on the food, and it's showed on the scales for sure. Now managing to get into some clothes 3 sizes smaller than when I started in January.

Got my exam results this morning (14 days early!!) thought it was going to be bad news, but no, I passed the third unit of my diploma. so just waiting for the results of my final assignment, then it will all be over until September.

Feeling really positive, might even volunteer to be coach for a week if I don't need the PM feature to do it (infraction for speaking my mind!! - no PMs for 30 days!!) Going to even try some exercise now my exam results are in as I thought I would have to spend time revising. Got Garmin Fit downloaded to my android, so may give it a go tomorrow.

Hope you're all having a good time for Easter.

Congrats on a great March and being done with school until September!

I'm sure you could coach even without PMs and a friendly word of advice -- talking about infractions can result in more so live and learn and move on.

Missing in March

Sorry I haven't contributed much to the conversation in March. However this group has been a huge support for me. It doesn't look like I will hit my 10 pound goal for March...but it should be close. I hadn't thought about Easter dinner until today tough...that will be a hurdle. However I don't think it will be bad....I've gotten where candy isn't that appealing so I should be good on that (however I will probably have a Reases egg or 2) and dinner shouldn't be bad....so we'll see how it goes. Now I just need to figure out my goal for April. I accomplished what I feel has been a successful March without exercise so adding it in should make a big difference. So maybe I will shoot for 10 again. Anyway.....hope everyone is doing well and has a great Easter.

I do whatever I can fit in!

But mostly I just fit in what I can when I can! Seems to be working, I will hit 1600 mins of exercise this month (I am also on the March exercise challenge board).

I don't know! I have a goal in mind... 159 lbs which will put me at a healthy BMI but I guess we will see what I feel like when I get there...

I don't because I follow a low carb diet. It took some getting used to and I am still somewhat fearful of "too much" fat. I do think I should start watching the quality of fats I eat, I think they are good because mostly my fats come from nuts healthy oils like EVOO or safflower oil. But I don't watch this on a daily basis...

I hope you are all doing fabulous and still getting fit! I hope I can come back to WISH after school ends this semester, the past year has been the most stressful ever, tons of classes and lots of work.

Just thought I'd update some of you who were so encouraging to me last year. I have gained back a couple pounds this semester but I'm working on losing them now; I have my 3rd half marathon in May. I applied for the Disney College Program and have been...ACCEPTED for merchandise for this Fall!! That means I'm heading to Florida for 6 months in August!! I also just signed up for the TOT 10 miler in October, my first Disney race, so maybe I will see some of you!

I realize the accountability and encouragement here was extremely helpful and I've missed it. I've barely had any time this year so only 6 weeks and I will hopefully be able to come read some!

Have a great day!!
Congrats on the race and the DCP!!

When I got to 135 I stuck with it for a while, but I was still contemplating going just a bit lower. I finally decided to aim for 129, which would make it exactly 90 pounds lost. It took quite a bit of time and work to get to that number and I discovered pretty quickly that I was unable to maintain it. So I bounced back into the low 130's and have stayed there for a few years. I can generally maintain under 135 without too much struggle. Sure, I'd love to hit 130 and stay THERE, but I am not willing to go to the extremes in diet and exercise it might take.

Looks like we are getting a new fridge, so I need to research my options today. My current fridge was purchased when we built the house 19 years ago and while it still runs fine, it has a lot of other issues (broken door shelves, broken fruit bins, missing freezer shelves). I have lived with these issues because I am:

#1. cheap.

#2. unwilling to send a big item like this to the landfill unnecessarily.

#3. did I mention I was cheap??


But DH got a work bonus and we need to pick a "prize" and one of the things available with the "points" he got was a wide variety of refrigerators! This seems like the most practical thing to "buy" with the points, since they don't convert to Disney Dollars OR to college tuition money! He got a batch of these points a few months ago and was kind enough to treat us all to our choice of things from the catalog. DD and I both got Tiffany jewelry, DS got a PS3 game system and DH got himself an Ipod Touch. While the cash would be MOST appreciated, the gifts are really nice too.

For those who remember my rant about the roof a while ago (shingles flew off during a wind storm), the insurance company actually accepted our claim and they are paying for a good size portion of a new roof! We have our check (which I still need to cash) and the extra deductible money set aside and the roofing guy we contracted with is coming out today for a final "look see" and is scheduled to do the work next week! So YEAH for a new roof!! And double YEAH that we don't have to pay for it all OOP!!

Off to make beds and hit the scrapping table! I will workout while DD is at swim tonight.

BBL to chat...........P
I am hoping to be like you ultimately regarding goal weight!

Congrats on the new fridge! Very exciting, and
on your "cheapness!"

I also never get "fat free" anything, mainly because the carb count goes way up when they try to get the same "mouth feel" that fats do. I have "light" mayo or yogurt instead, because the fat free stuff always taste metallic to me.
Hope you all have a great night!!

Substitute QOTD Thursday, March 28, 2013:

What is the BEST zoo you have ever been to (other than DAK, of course )? What makes it great?
The Phoenix Zoo for sure! It is voted one of the best zoos for kids in the US and for good reasson. They of course have all the normal things like the petting zoo and the carousel, but also have caverns the kids can explore (which have running water creating a wet play area during teh hot months -which is most of the year in Phoenix!). Plus they have a Monkey Village where you actually enter the spider monkey enclosure and they play all around you!

Granted, I would love to visit thesan Diego Zoo and I think that would become my favorite! We will someday... it is only a 6 hr drive away.

Hope you are feeling better!

As for the QOTD, I think I weill be ok... I have found that I don't really like a lot of candy after not eating them for so long... At least not enough to outweigh the guilty feeling. And as for dinner, my mom is making the ham and I bringing the sides and dessert. So my plan is to bring things I can eat (greens beans with bacon, roasted cauliflower, and a sugar free jello and whipped cream mold for dessert) along with ham. Plus I am bringing bunny buns and carrot cake cupcakes just because I like baking and everyone else can enjoy!

I had such a horrible day in my high school boys room that I almost just quit. The staff that are in the room let the kids do whatever they want. Then I walk in and have to get order established and barely have time for teaching. Then, the 2 staff left me (I have no idea why) and I almost had 2 students fight. I was so stressed. Now, this probably sounds like your typical high school for behavior problems, buuuuuut, this is an ongoing problem and no one in authority is doing anything about it. To top it off, I told my boss's assistant, and he could care less. Another teacher was so upset with everything that is going on that he went to talk to our boss, and he got no where. My boss avoided me all 3 days and I am so discouraged. I have worked at this school for 12 years and have done everything ever asked of me plus so much more. I feel like I am getting no support from the higher ups.

My DH wants me to quit, but I have me and my DSs on my insurance and it's stressful to think about. I updated my resume and cover letter, but there won't be any teaching opening around here. We don't have county schools, they are all local districts. One school told me they had an opening for an elementary teacher a couple years ago and they got over 200 applicants. We live in an area where we have an abundance of college with teaching programs, too. We have been toying with relocating, but it's even more stressful.

So, I haven't been posting, but I've been reading along. I didn't go to the gym this week. I did manage to squeeze in a few workouts at home, but my eating has been terrible. In fact, I'm chalking March up to a complete loss. I'm hoping to get it together for April, though!

Thanks for letting me complain

Jill
So sorry you are having a tough go of it, I certainly know how it feels to be frustrated at a thankless job and want out! I think you will make good decisions for your family, just give yourself some time to really think about what you want your future to look like...

Ended up doing the race this morning. I ran when I could and walked when I had to. Came in dead last, well 4 walkers were behind me but they peeled off. But I finished and I PR'ed. 40 minutes and 35 seconds, 13:32 pace.
There is some serious motivation when you have a cop car tailing you!!
DS16 also PRed at 18:40, came in 9th over all and 2nd in his age division. DS11 ran in 30:27.

I did what I wanted to accomplish, I made my knee hurt. Sounds odd doesn't it?? But it hadn't hurt in quite a few days and I have a Dr appt Monday so I wanted to mark where it hurt so he could see it. It's very specific.

It was nice finishing as having a lot of friends cheering me on at the end.

Oh and it was uphill, both ways! Lol that I didn't know or I probably wouldn't have done it. So I'm kind of glad I didn't know.

Inspired by you all talking about exercise, I'm going out in the lovely british sunshine for a walk around the park.

Been on the scales this morning and I finish March at 209. I set myself a target of 7lb off, but actually lost 10, which I believe is 143% of target.

Will check back in later to let you know how I got on. HAPPY EASTER everyone.

Well, I manager 3.78km, which is apparently 2 miles, 614 yards to you guys!!!!

Took an hour and 5 minutes, but that was mainly because I stopped to feed stale bread to the ducks, then walked around the animal enclosures feeding the parrots some peanuts I 'happened' to have in the car!!!

There were a lot of families out in the park enjoying the spring sunshine, but it's still only 2 degrees here! When I got back home I fely inspired to go outside and fold the tent, the canopy and the groundsheet that we used a couple of weekends ago so that they all fit back into their original bags.

Might even go out for another walk after lunch if the sun stays out.

Happy Easter to all of you!!!

And a huge Congratulations to all of us for keeping going for another month during the weight loss journey. If you have made your goal or not, at least you are still here, trying every day to make the best choices possible. And that is the only way to acchieve the goal we have set us!!!

Not sure whether I am still coaching during the Easter weekend - but I guess I am (at least I offered to that a while ago). So, very sorry that I did not make it onto the DIS yesterday to give you a question of the day. First I was still suffering from my migraine, then I had to go into work (I kind of was on call), then had to run errands and finally started to feel better in the afternoon and then had plans to meet some friends in the evening. I had about one hour at home and had two options: Do my Ripped in 30 DVD which I have been slacking with over the last couple of days or go online. I picked the exercise thinking that all of you would understand that...

But here I am now, enjoying a lovely quiet Easter Sunday, backing some Easter bread (a sweet yeast loaf) to take to my parents later this afternoon. On Friday I started a new project: trying to convert my trip report from my 2010 trip to WDW with my sister into a photo book. I am already looking forward to working on that a bit more today. I am afraid it is a project that will take me a long time as I am still only at our first night at WDW and it was a 11 day trip!!

So, here is the question of the day:

Looking back at March, tell us one thing in your weight loss efforts that you are proud of that you accomplished that is not about the pounds you lost.

My answer is that I finally managed to eat a healthy breakfast on a regular basis. I have struggled over the past months with getting out of bed early enough to have breakfast at home, but I tackled that and got into the habit of having just a basic müsli: It's a mix with different grains and some crunchy granola, I add berries (using frozen at the moment which I thaw in the microwave) and milk. And I have some Earl Grey tea with it. Puts me into a good mood every morning!
