Oh I forgot to add this to the above post

Shannon I loved those little challenges let's do it!

I say St Patty's Day sounds good to me. I can't keep a list of who wants to join and their amounts. Let me know.

I do have my extra points so that will help....
Veggies, Salad, protein, fruit. Maybe one special thing thay you don't often have as a treat. Don't go starving. Stay hydrated, even if you partake in some adult beverages.

Oh happy day!

We should do mini challenges Wonders.
I am swamped with 4 college classes if anyone wants to take on this or we can just monitor ourselves. I like small challenges, keeps you grounded.
Amazing! I feel like even though I'm tracking and following the plan, I'm still not doing as good as I can be. So that is my goal this week...to really, truly follow the program and maybe get some activity points in this weekend at least.

I don't have a problem monitoring the challenge. I can't promise it's going to be as fancy as when Aaron did it but definitely don't mind keeping track. So what should our goal date be? Then those that want to participate can share their goals.

St. Patrick's Day is about 7 weeks away from today. It's on a Thursday, and I personally, weigh in on Fridays.

I think my goal is going to be 18 lbs. That's what I need to see one-derland again. It's a lot but I still think doable if I stay focused.

St. Patty's Day Challenge

Okay everyone!

I've started a list of participants in the St. Patty's Day Challenge. It's 7 weeks from now (minus a day).

So far I have:
Monica - 10 lbs
LMO - 7 lbs
and myself

Let me know if you want in!

I'm down .8, and I think I could lose another .8 by 3/17. Just kidding. I'm not signing up for the challenge. I know it's silly, but I never was successful on one of those. I think partly because I felt like it was competition, and I knew I couldn't be the biggest loser. So I'll be a and just do my best without a specific weight loss goal in mind.

On a related note, I contacted our travel agent and upgraded us to a balcony cabin on our cruise next month. It's not Disney, but I'm still super-excited.

congrats to all the loser and samers, and for those who are up, don't fret, just live and learn. Sometimes it's just a "hiccup" in our system, and sometimes it's a reminder to be a little more vigilant.

DH and I have a church meeting out of town tomorrow morning, so I better get to bed. I declare now that I will make wise food choices at the meeting, no sitting by the m & ms bowl.

Have a healthy weekend, all.

It's okay...I've never actually met one of the challenges either, but I'm giving it a go, because my even bigger challenge date (disney) is the week after so now I feel like I have 2 things going for myself.

Yay for a balcony! I love cruises although I've yet to do a Disney one. My problem with the disney cruises is they are so darn expensive and I can do a 7 day cruise that leaves closer to home, with a balcony, for cheaper than a 4 nt oceanview cabin on Disney. That being said, eventually, I am going to do one!

Okay, so my weight loss ticker is gone because it wouldn't let me update it with this week's weight and that was just going to be really annoying to have to get a new ticker every week. So...I just took one of the WISH smilies and will change it every 5 lbs. So even though I've lost 7 lbs, I have the 5lb in my siggie.

I have gone on a disney cruise two times..I have to say I really enjoyed myself on both of them. We do not have children and I liked how the adult areas are strictly adult. I rarely saw children on the cruise.

the problem I have with disney cruise is I rather spend the $ in the parks than on a cruise. Its hard to justify spending over 2500 on a 4 day cruise when I can be in the parks during that same amount of time. Plus my husband likes to gamble and there is no gambling i heard that is why they are more expensive as well

I MISSED YOU GUYS!

My surgery went well, but I dont notice any "improvement" yet. I am assured these things take time.

I havent even touched a scale or counted points all week. I mostly sleep and rest and watch HGTV all day. I close my eyes and POOF, it's 6PM. Ughhhh.

The good news, which has surprised me, is Travis is totally taking care of me! He wont let me lift a finger and is constantly making sure everything is A-OK. Kids quiet, pillows fluffed, etc. He told me he likes taking care of me . All I can say is WOW. If only I can train him to want to go to DISNEY and not Hawaii. The man thinks we can "do" disney in a half a day. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'm nervous to get on the scale because I've only been in Pajamas and feel sooooo fat/solid. After a week, ummmm, I reeeeeally need special muffins, if you know what I mean.

I'm probably not ready for a St. Patricks day challenge. I need my head back in this game! I'm positive Ive re-gained all the weight I lost.

OK, now I need to read back. Ive missed a LOT.

Maybe you should wait to weigh until the special muffins have worked their magic.
My sis had the same surgery a couple of months ago. It took a little while for her to see an improvement, because she got a UTI right after. Once they got that cleared up, it's been smooth sailing.
Hope you are feeling good, and on having a honey-bunch that takes care of you. Just bombard him with Glee tunes until he agrees to do Disney good and proper.

Wendy - glad you are sort of feeling better. Just enjoy the rest and be thankful you have a sweetie to help you out around the house!

I am having a rough start to the week. I'm stressed and anxious and all I want is comfort food and Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts (has anyone ever noticed that the "seasonal" Reese's are sooooo much better than the regular ones?)

I'm desperately trying to turn things around so I can see a loss this week.

In other exciting news...if you aren't reading my pre-trip report, I have added an extra night for a grand total of 4! And we switched our hotel ressie from POR to POFQ. We're ready for a change, but it still gives us the comfort of POR.

Happy Tuesday!
