We got home from DL last Sunday and when I weighed Monday morning, I had not gained any(more) on the trip. By Friday, I was down 1.6. I've been trying to get back on the wagon this week, but it's been iffy (a giant doughnut appeared on my desk. What was I to do?) I think some of the weight came off because of all the walking at DL (we stayed a couple of blocks away, and walked to and from the park twice a day, plus all of the walking in the park). I admit I did use DH's ECV a couple of times, because my pinky toe was really sore. By the time I got home, it was SERIOUSLY infected and spreading along the side of my foot. I'm on two kinds of antibiotics now, which has wreaked havoc with my digestion. So, that + walking = weight loss.
Nonetheless, we had a great time at Disney. There were 11 of us on the weekend. We moved like a herd of turtles, but had time in lines to visit, and had a great dinner in CA Adv. Now if I can just get my head in the game of weight loss!

Hey Peeps! Where has everyone go? Not that I'm one to talk...I haven't posted in a couple weeks! Weight-wise, I'm about where I was a week after my food poisoning. And my mom, who doesn't see me often, has noticed I've lost weight so that is good. It's Lent for all you Catholics out there and I gave up soda (diet and regular) as well as fast food (if it has a drive thru, I can't eat it. Except for Starbucks because I only get a light coffee of some sort every couple weeks or so). I think its helping and I am doing surprisingly well without any soda. Its been 2 weeks! I do drink crystal light and sparkling water when I want flavor and/or bubbles. I've also made a goal of "healthy things to do" and every morning I pick one out and have to do it that day. For example, do not eat anything chocolate or do your yoga DVD. It makes it a lot easier to get through if I know its only for one day.

Other than that, I've made some pretty big life decisions. The honeymoon is over for the new job I loved so much initially. I do still love my patients but the hours and medicare rules we have to abide by are ridiculous. And my boss is, well, not the best boss I've ever had. Two weekends home in a row also made me realize how much I miss living where I used to live (fort lauderdale area - I'm over an hour north now in a small coastal town). Those thoughts have been lingering since I moved up here almost 4 years ago. So...my lease is up in June and I have decided to move home (until I figure out exactly where I want to live down there), quit my current job and go back to working for the company I worked for when I was an intern/recent grad school grad which is in the schools and private practice speech therapy. I am dreading telling my boss and our other speech therapist but I'm also so excited and happy to be moving back to the area I consider "home". Socially, there are also so many more opportunities for me to meet people and its just more "me" if that makes sense. But thinking about all of this has really started to mess with my head and I am a mess emotionally. So I'm hoping once I tell people at work (next month) I'll feel better.

You have to always go with your gut. If you feel like your insides are telling you to move back home then go with that decision. I find when I follow what my gut tells me to do its always right. Dont worry about what other people may think or are affect by your decision you have to do whats best for you

As far as not posting on these boards. I really try but the disboards are just so slow that I shy away from coming around here as much as I use to I find it so aggravating to post. sometimes i cant even get the websites to come up. It's probably because when I go on the computer in high traffic times.

Since Jan 2 I am down 10.2 pounds.

I am currently doing a turbofire/jillian michaels body revolution hybrid. at
home I am also logging my calories in lose it.com

Shannon, this sounds like the best decision you could make. You gave it a good go (4 years is a while) and it's not right for you. There is no shame in going where it will make you happy, not at all, and you shouldn't feel bad about it.

When you explain it to your current job, they should understand. It isn't them and the job, it's that you miss your town and your family and want to be closer to them. If they don't understand, then they really *really* weren't worth your time in the first place.

Sending a lot of hugs your way.

Disboards is incredibly slow for me as well. Are you on FB?

Shannon ~ definitely go where you are happy. My DH and I moved back home over 20 years ago, after we realized we would work all week and then several weekends we would visit back at home. We lived in Saratoga Springs (the real one not Disney) which is a beautiful place to live, but our hearts were back where we grew up! We figured if this was where we were spoending our free tome it is where we wanted and needed to be!

On another note, I think maybe I;ll just stay fat! I have no motivation to eat healthy and exercise! UGH!

Shannon - hope you find the right place for you.
PD - You are beautiful just the way you are, but don't forget to keep your health in mind. You know I just lost my mom, but before she died, she spent the last 14 years of her life in a wheelchair and losing her eyesight. All of this was complications due to her weight and inactivity. I try to remember that my attempts to control my eating and to fit in exercise have less to do with cottage cheese thighs and more to do with having energy to one day spend on grandkids, to enjoy retirement with DH, and to relieve my kids of having to care for me. I will never regret the time I spent helping to take care of my mom, but I think we all could have been happier if she had taken better care of herself. (Hope that's not too preachy, just filled with love and a reminder to myself as well).
On that note, I signed up for a challenge on SparkPeople to reign in my sugar consumption. I have been really out of control. I signed up yesterday, and today a kid came in with a Nothing Bundt Cakes marble cake for me. I sent it home with another teacher. We are having a late b-day party for me tomorrow, and I will have a piece of cake then, but again, I'll find others to share it with.

Hey wait they owe me!
So Danielle, I came up with a new goal weight last night. I was thinking it would be easier to have a goal of gaining 100 pounds rather than losing 60-70! There you go ruining all my fun again!

I have the Malificient (sp?) that you gave me sitting on a shelf in my office! I am going to put it in my purse and carry it with me everywhere as a reminder of your post to try to keep me in check! You know I you!

DS' gf tells me the new fitness craze is do SOMEthing! So none of us are perfect, and maybe we won't even lose weight, but we can all take a few steps more than we feel like, eat half a piece of cake instead of the whole thing, or like me today, track your food even on a day when you know you went over your limit. Just don't give up.
And yes, PD, our kids do owe us everything. I just don't want to have to call in that debt.

I get like that every once in awhile where I say to myself why do I even bother. But I know I def feel better when I work out and eat right. Just take it day by day that has been my attitude this year and I find mentally it is working for me. Just enjoy the day and try to be as healthy as possible. I try not to worry about a week or month from now what I will look like etc. I just try to keep my eye the prize one day at a time.

Had an okay week... didn't move around as much as I needed to and am only down -0.4. Hoping for a better week this week.

Still prepping the house for sale... de-cluttering and staging... I didn't realize how much junk we had and was surprised at how good it was to let so many things go that I'd been holding on to.

Hope you all have a great week!

I was up 0.3 lbs.. I think the sugar pledge helped keep it from being worse. Have a great week, everyone!

Hi my peeps! Missing everyone

I have been ok for the most part in my eating except when AF is coming I eat like Ms Piggy. I gain between 4-5 lb around that time and then lose it right after she leaves.

Does anyone have any quick ideas for breakfast? I have never been a big breakfast eater (please don't yell, I know it's a bad habit). I started going back to school (20 years ago I started going to college but never finished) for a histology technologist (they prepare tissue slides for the pathologist to read, usually cancer but not always). I work as a medical transcriptionist in the pathology department right now but only once a week and I need a job. Anywho ~ I need something that I can eat in the car going to school (it takes me an hour)

Any ideas ? besides a Starbucks latte.

Laura xoxo
