Just tried the quiz and got Its A Small World. Cute quiz. I was stuck on the Kardashkans too.

Happy Friday evening all! After a busy day of cleaning, laundry, and driving, I'm off to see the new Disney "Bears" movie with the family. I know the men are only going along to keep the girls happy and to do something as a family, but I'm okay with that. My homemade fat-free popcorn is popped and my seltzer is ready (for DD and I)! DH has an OP treat for himself and DS has a bit of his own cash for a small popcorn and a soda.

I have three messages in my PM box, presumably weigh-ins.... keep them coming!!

TTY tomorrow!...................P

Tower of Terror!!! Which is a ride I absolutely LOVE!

I really don't want to step on the scale tomorrow morning. I had a birthday and there were 2 days of not the best eating. Plus Tuesday night I didn't sleep well but still got up early Wednesday to swim. Opened the door to the pool at the Y and there were 5 people there. Way too crowded for me. I turned around and went home. Made for a nice, relaxed morning before work. Went again this morning and had a lovely swim with only 2 other people in the pool--and 1 left after a couple minutes.

DS made the Bach Festival choir! He's pretty excited.

to everybody

It's late here and I need to plan some shopping/meals so I can run to the market early in the morning (hopefully I'll beat the crowds!). My brain has decided to go to bed so this might be hard!

I did it twice b/c I had a hard time choosing and I have no idea about the Kardashians I got Big Thunder Mountain then Mad Hatter Tea Party. I really wanted to get Carrousel of Progress or Tower of Terror LOL

I'm off to go workout!! my WI was down a little this week, whew...my weight has been fluctuating for nearly 6 months...the same 10 lbs. Three weeks until Vegas trip so I'm focused hard until then and maybe I can break through this plateau
Great news about you WI. I like the quiz. Surprised about space Mountain result, I used to like it a lot but not since I suffered with my back - I don't want to chance it. Hubby got Tower of Terror, which he loves
for Vegas trip. Really not long to go now - v. Exciting!!!

I am so glad this board is here. This is a great group of people. Hey Happy Easter early.
Found out a few days ago my daughter is having a girl and there are no problems YAY. I feel sorry for the poor thing and the amount of pink things that will surround her from Gramma me lol. Went to see Bob Newhart last night at an Indian casino--he was wonderful and had a jazz band open. Had to juggle schedule around but worth it. Just ordered some C02 pet urine cleaner I saw on My Cat from Hell, and a bunch of feliway refills. I have my blacklight flashlight now that works great and all's I have to do is start cleaning. I scrubbed a bit in my bedroom last week but I had already really cleaned it so it was easy. The blacklight picked up some spray on the curtains (hoodlums) and there were a few places I'd missed cleaning blind. I guess vinegar and water is good for urine, which I've been using for years but I'm pulling out the big guns. The feliway helps to prevent spraying so after I'm all clean I'll plug 'em all in lol. I need to organize a baby shower too. I am completely clueless. She doesn't have any friends in her turn over a new leaf life so I'm going to gather friends of my Mom's and my husband's ladies from his side of the family--they're awesome. All my family is in Illinois. She's already been very lucky that friends of my parents are giving her a bunch of stuff including a lot of girl baby clothes. They are moving in to some apts. that are close and the boy got a second job (poor thing). It won't be low income housing exactly but there is some sort of thing they are working out that will help a lot. The boy also got bees back (his grandma accidentally killed off most of his hives) because he was called to remove some from a house and has farmers willing to house them for him as they help their crops. I must say I was all ready to do without him altogether but he really is putting in the effort. My eating has been bat ____ crazy-- extremely indulgent, due to my birthday, and trying to get my daughter to eat more lol, but after Easter I think I'll settle down. I took her to be fitted at a bra shop and they told her to eat because they could see her ribs lol. She is one that's hard to put weight on especially with the kind of nausea she's had. Those certainly aren't my genes....

Sorry that the pool was too crowded. How many lanes do you have?

HOW absolutely WONDERFUL for him!!! Congratulations!!

Hope you got to the market! Our market was pretty busy for 9 am yesterday, but it will fully staffed, so I was in and out quickly!

Space Mtn is SUPER rough (as is BTMRR). I dread the day when I have to pass by those rides!

First of all, HUGE congrats to "Grandma" on the baby girl news!! And so happy to hear that all is well and healthy! Hope the nausea passes soon.

Glad that DD and her SO are settling down and things seem to be going along well for them. It will be nice to have things in order before the baby comes.

Enjoy your post-birthday/Easter indulgences and then you will be ready to get back to your normal healthy eating next week!

************************

HAPPY BLESSED Easter Sunday everyone!! It is beautifully sunny here, but brutally cold considering it is the end of April! Earlier this year when I saw that Easter was so late, I was pretty excited that we would finally have a WARM Easter, but I guess I counted my chickens before they hatched! It is winter-coat-cold here this morning. I had intended to get in a quick walk before the family awoke, but 30 degrees on the thermometer changed my mind pretty quick.

Today and tomorrow will be pretty busy, so don't be shocked if you don't hear from me before Tuesday. Today we will be at SIL's, then dropping DD at school and a quick overnight stay with MIL, and tomorrow we will be at the start of the Boston Marathon and then at BIL's for part of the day. I don't anticipate getting home too late, as DH flies out for business early Tuesday morning. Then I have my WW meeting on Tuesday and then the rest of the week is MINE to do with as I please!!! HOORAY for April vacation!

I am bringing a HUGE salad to DSIL's today as well as carrots and hummus and a store-bought pie (I don't bake ). I plan to stick to salad and protein (probably ham, possibly chicken).... no dessert, no cocktails. If I don't start eating dessert it is just easier to stay in control..... one bite sometimes leads to a disaster. Plus I have some unknown eating situations coming into play on Monday, so I need to be prepared, just in case.

I'm off to make french toast for a special Easter breakfast for the kiddos. Not sure if this is a splurge day for DH yet. If not, I will be making eggs for him. I haven't decided yet if I will have an egg white omelet or a green smoothie. I have decided that this will NOT be a splurge day for me. I had a small splurge at the movies Friday night with a handful of peanut M&Ms to go with my homemade popcorn and then yesterday I had a small cocktail in the afternoon with my Mom plus some of the indulgent onion casserole she brought along, so my splurges for this week are done..... I hope.

Off to get my family up and moving. We will do a small Easter "service" here at home over breakfast before heading out to drive to MA for the family dinner. It would have made things a little crazy here to make it out the door for church. DD has to have EVERYTHING packed up and into the car because she is going straight back to school after Easter dinner today. Plus, while I love our church, the holidays there are CRAZY crowded and it really takes the enjoyment out of it for me. Christmas Eve service we ended up sitting in the overflow room (with a flatscreen), despite getting there 30+ minutes early. It not at all enjoyable.... we would have been better off watching the live feed from home.

Anyhow..... EASTER BLESSINGS and EASTER JOY to all of my friends here!.............P

Here's hoping I can get some of you will power. Have a good few days. We are off to see my Mum tomorrow so I will probably get on here later tomorrow. I need to eat less junk tomorrow. It has been a much colder day and raining and I find it harder to resist junk.
Catch ya soon

Fly by post! Which it looks like we need because our thread was near the bottom of the screen!

So most junk food is gone and I am back on plan! Got my swim in yesterday and class and walk in this morning. Now I am off to work. Have a great day!

see above we are kicking the junk to the curb today!!

was away all weekend at my parents, had a really great weekend. brought home some candy and leftovers, but I'm tucking it away in the cupboard and freezing some. My friends/fam journaling/fitbit challenge ended last weekend, my Mom won (woohoo!) but I got third so I had to pay-up and didn't win anything. boo! I was in the lead until I let one weekend pull me into overeating and not journaling and just like that, third place. lesson for me was the every bleeping ding-dang DAY counts!! we are in round two now, this round lasts until we go to Vegas... my friend who got second place lost 10 lbs! it really helped her get motivated and keep on it, so I really do feel great about supporting her!

I'm not sure how this week's WI will go...ugh and sigh

Hi everyone.. just stopping in for a quick hello and to let you know I read everything up to here so thank you to all of you for the kind words about my Gram's passing and about my "grateful" list.. 50sjayne - congrats a new "minnie mouse" oh boy will you have fun!

I want to let you know I am all in for May.. I went to the Dr last Wed and well my numbers were not as bad as I thought but I still got the talk (A1C = 7.6) so Monday started back on Induction for Atkins and have lost 5 as of this am (I am sure it's water but I am not so bloated looking or feeling! which is awesome) before I started I did manage to eat most of my favorite foods as to not be tempted .. I hope to stay on induction for a month then add back in yogurt and nuts at that time..

I have a goal actully it's a few along the way to the 60 I need to lose
7/2 is my next Dr appt..
7/5 my BFF's littlest sister gets married I'd like to be down 30 by then..
7/13 we camping a posh resort (right here in Maine) so I'd like to look good in my bathing suit... (hold at the 30 lost)
8/5 we have reservations at Stonewall Kitchen to see guest chef Edward Lee from Top Chef Texas! (would like to be down 35)
10/1 - 10/5 I'm trying to get Hubs to let me book a quick Disney trip but we'll see.. (he said yes if free dining comes out ooooo my fingers are crossed but that won't likely be till Aug) (would like to be down 40)
10/10 is my 45th Bday (hold at the 40)
11/27 is Thanksgiving (maybe down to 45)
12/22 I start my Christmas vacation and don't come back till 1/5/15 (maybe down to 50 but holding at 45 is ok too)
of course then we are into next year and last 10 are always the hardest so i'll just keep on keeping on! Haaa well that was long winded!

Hope everyone has a great WI this week.. TTYL Michelle

Hey Pamela, I got Mad Tea Party too. We can toss our cookies together!!!

Just cruising through, April has not been a kind month for me mentally so I'm here but no joining. Today so far has been a good day diet wise though, hopefully that will continue!!

I think life just got a little bit busy! So just a quick flyby post!

Despite my quick weekend trip I've been working off the fun weight gain. Usually I'd regret this but I hadn't seen some of my friends since we graduated in May so we wanted to eat and go to all the places we went to in college and we had so much fun!

So I'm excited to keep pushing on my goals!

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Easter!

Wowza.... I pop back on after daaaays away and see that we are STILL on the same page?? What's up with that my friends?? Has everyone been away from the computer like I have??

Anyhoo...... Happy Throwback Thursday! Sorry I've been MIA.... been keeping busy with projects around the house (for school vacation week) and it JUST dawned on me while hanging laundry this morning that I NEVER updated page one this week. WHOOPS! I'll do that today, so if you HAVEN'T sent me last week's weigh-in, it isn't too late!!

We had a lovely Easter weekend. The weather was decent (albeit cool for this time of year) and I visited with my folks on Saturday and my in-laws on Sunday and still other family members on Monday. My BIL lives just a few miles from the start line of the Boston Marathon and while we visited often on marathon day when the kids were younger, we haven't in recent years because it means pulling them from school..... but our school vacation overlapped marathon day this year, so we decided to go. But the security, etc was SO INSANE! The parking area and shuttles that we have always counted on was limited to runners only this year and the traffic to GET to the area was nuts, so despite being just 2 miles away, we stayed at BIL's house and watched it on the tv. I'm not disappointed.

Other than a small run-in with some cookie dough one evening, my eating has been SPOT ON since Saturday. Specific exercise, not so much, but I have definitely been moving and busy with some deep spring cleaning and re-arranging. Was planning a hike with DS today, but it is crazy windy and cool today, so I may re-think that.

Off to do some catching up here!.............P

I was in the lead until I let one weekend pull me into overeating and not journaling and just like that, third place. lesson for me was the every bleeping ding-dang DAY counts!! we are in round two now, this round lasts until we go to Vegas... my friend who got second place lost 10 lbs! it really helped her get motivated and keep on it, so I really do feel great about supporting her!

I'm not sure how this week's WI will go...ugh and sigh
Well, congrats to your Mom and friend.... and to you for sticking with it! Maybe you'll win the next round.... and even if you aren't the "biggest loser" at least you are working hard at staying on track and getting slimmer and healthier!

I want to let you know I am all in for May.. I went to the Dr last Wed and well my numbers were not as bad as I thought but I still got the talk (A1C = 7.6) so Monday started back on Induction for Atkins and have lost 5 as of this am (I am sure it's water but I am not so bloated looking or feeling! which is awesome) before I started I did manage to eat most of my favorite foods as to not be tempted .. I hope to stay on induction for a month then add back in yogurt and nuts at that time..

I have a goal actully it's a few along the way to the 60 I need to lose
7/2 is my next Dr appt..
7/5 my BFF's littlest sister gets married I'd like to be down 30 by then..
7/13 we camping a posh resort (right here in Maine) so I'd like to look good in my bathing suit... (hold at the 30 lost)
8/5 we have reservations at Stonewall Kitchen to see guest chef Edward Lee from Top Chef Texas! (would like to be down 35)
10/1 - 10/5 I'm trying to get Hubs to let me book a quick Disney trip but we'll see.. (he said yes if free dining comes out ooooo my fingers are crossed but that won't likely be till Aug) (would like to be down 40)
10/10 is my 45th Bday (hold at the 40)
11/27 is Thanksgiving (maybe down to 45)
12/22 I start my Christmas vacation and don't come back till 1/5/15 (maybe down to 50 but holding at 45 is ok too)
of course then we are into next year and last 10 are always the hardest so i'll just keep on keeping on! Haaa well that was long winded!

Hope everyone has a great WI this week.. TTYL Michelle
WOW! You have SO MUCH to look forward to for the remainder of the year! I'm SO GLAD you are recommitting for May!!

YUP!!

Just cruising through, April has not been a kind month for me mentally so I'm here but no joining. Today so far has been a good day diet wise though, hopefully that will continue!!
Just glad to hear from you! You are missed.

I agree!!! I'm sorry to have been gone, but it appears our coach for the week hasn't popped in! I'll post a QOTD for today, but I'm sorry we missed some days.

my excuse, well my interest and discussion board time has been focused on my vegas trip I can say I'm still doing really well with my food journaling and working out, fitbit step goal. I really really hope the scale reflects tomorrow!!
Fingers crossed!

Despite my quick weekend trip I've been working off the fun weight gain. Usually I'd regret this but I hadn't seen some of my friends since we graduated in May so we wanted to eat and go to all the places we went to in college and we had so much fun!

So I'm excited to keep pushing on my goals!

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Easter!
WONDERFUL to hear from you! Glad you had fun with friends and that you are back on track and looking toward your goals!

********************

Well.... I hate to see things slowing down to a CRAWL here! We need to keep up the chatting to help keep ourselves on track!

I'll post a QOTD for Stacey today and also tomorrow if she doesn't pop in. I hope she is alright! I know she is a busy young lady and perhaps life got in the way. I do NOT have a coach scheduled starting 4/26, so I will fill in!

Hugs and love to those who have been here and a HUGE SHOUT OUT to our friends who are MIA!!! PLEASE come back! You are missed and remember this is a no-guilt zone! You are welcome back, no questions asked! It is so important that you NEVER GIVE UP on your goals to be healthier!

Off to post a belated QOTD for today!..............P
