Hi Gang!

Lisa - you really need to EMAIL me before you cross the border!!!

Thinking about you with your parents - the stuff with my mom is very intense right now. it's too bad we can't have a weekly destressing meet up!

Meg - yes, we all do process in our own way, so true. Lisa is right. Sometimes it takes a long time to get back - sometimes we never get there, just to somewhere new. You had a really good beginning, a good story and good times to hang onto - those beginnings help when the toad gets rocky, which is always does.

Tell us more about the wedding! Who is she marrying? Father of the baby? Yes?

Hi everyone! Going to try and make an effort to check in more frequently! I need the accountability. I'm sitting in car circle now waiting for D to get out of kindergarten!

We joined YMCA this summer and it really has been the best thing! I've been doing spin, tabata, Zumba, and I just started a boot camp 3 times a week. Since the week after 4th of July I've lost about 10 lbs. I slacked off for the 2nd half of August and am now trying to get back on track. On a good day I weigh about 185. I would like to be solidly under 175 by early December when I am doing tough mudder ! I have a few other obstacle races between now and then. I'm hoping the boot camps and tabata will improve my upper body strength as right now I have hardly any

Liz, I would never come without telling you ahead of time. This time I was going to road trip you all (if you were available I mean - laughing) - had it all planned in my head and mapped - and then when it fell apart I was so incredibly drained with everything I needed no plans. Just needed to go with the flow. But I swear Red Bank will be seeing me one day. For sure. And grateful to you for meeting up with me in the city.

As for Mom - did she get some disappointing tests back? I know that's direct but it's the only way I can do it. Thinking about you all the time Liz. So proud of you as well. I will ask again - tell me a bit about your program - I mean I know it's MSW but what do you want to do with it? I'm so happy for you. So thrilled.

OMG TOTALLY psychic moment Amy. I was JUST going to ask you about all your dedication and how it's playing out body wise on facebook. So thrilled for you. It must be wonderful mentally as well, eh?

Yeah for you! Outstanding.

Oh and by the way I'm not sure you need accountability Amy. Wink.

Amy is a rock star! Not that we are surprised. She is SO consistent!


My mom. She has a brain tumor. No idea if it's malignant or not. Plus she can't eat, has gallbladder issues, and has been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks with no resolution or progress or anything. She went in two weeks ago for tests, the the cancer treatment center, and she has not left. Now she has been transferred to Temple but all we get is "waiting until she is stronger" etc bs My dad is exhausted and I just started a new job and grad school plus I have that kid to raise, so I am not in Philly advocating. So. No one is with her and no one is picking up the slack. He needs a break and I literally can't step in, if they let me anyway.

I have to figure out taking some time off and going there asap.

It's a mess. But it's not unique, right? Such is life, I have legs!

So last night I watched a lot of TV. Some studio small home forced - FOOTBALL. But I also caught a late feed of Oprah's Jennifer Hudson interview. I swear I don't know how that girl simply stands every single day. I don't know what I'm trying to say besides HOLY. H-O-L-Y. And it was something to hear that although her boyfriend thinks she now has even more confidence he actually preferred her larger.

AND this I LOVE - Jennifer Hudson never ever disliked her previous weight. At all. Said she had confidence and joy within. But loves where she's at now for clothes etc. I can't stand when some _______ on their previous selves - I never think they'll hold their new weight when they can't even love themselves before. And look at her. Wow.

And Kate Hudson - God love her for the truth. She's looking beyond fantastic and she's admitted that she was exercising SIX hours a day. WT F? No comment. But thank you Kate for not saying "oh I just breastfed".

Come on - stop - it is unique Liz. It's okay to call it like it is. It's okay to feel sorry for you and for her and for him. (Cause I know there's time for that and time for a myriad of emotions - none of them wrong). She's been through he!! - you've been through he!! - he's been through he!!. Not everyone has to face that Liz. Not everyone does. Okay, shutting up now.

All I can say is I'm so incredibly sorry - in the loving sense. And big love to you. SIGHING, SIGHING and sighing.

I'm so VERY happy that you are surrounded by wonderful friends and family. It's always evident that you are and thank GOD.

You are right. It's unique and it sucks and I HATE it. Hate it.

So my supportive friends, so true. Like the girls on here. Lifelines, I swear.

How smart of you to concentrate on those who are standing right beside you. How incredibly smart.

Another car line check in! I totally forgot I had the twilight thing in my sig. I am using the iPad app to post and I can't see pics, emoticons, or sigs. :/ easier to post from the app though.

Off day from working out today. I believe I had just a bit of dehydration or heat sickness from boot camp yesterday even though I hydrated well afterwards. Feeling better now though

I am loving the variety in my workouts. And while the scale is fairly stagnant right now, I am feeling stronger with every workout and all my clothes are getting looser. Not to mention just a bit of definition in my arms So these are good things too.

I surprised myself I'm the boot camp fitness test on Friday. 20 real pushups, 50 sit ups, 10 pull ups (on the pull up machine) and a 9:05 timed mile!! We'll do another fit test in a month!

Outstanding Amy.

The scale is totally secondary to all of this - even though you're ten lower (yeah on its own). All of this means so much more - sighing - totally so much more. Yeah Amy.

Hi, remember me........

So for a quick post I'm just jumping in to say:

Liz and Lisa - you both have some horrible, crappy situations going on now - and I have no words to describe how incredibly sorry I am for both of you. You both have great friends here and good support systems, so

Come here, vent, rant, scream, swear as much as the filters will allow - get it all out.

I will be back...at the end of the week...when I finally get some time off work! On a happy note I am going to see Phantom of the Opera tomorrow (again!) with my Mum, Aunt and best friend - random ladies day out!

Love to you all!

Hope you're feeling better Meg!

So, I'm back and I mean business!

1) Me and DH are joining a gym at the end of the month. His job is to find one for us that has lots of treadmills, which leads me on to number...

2) We have signed up for a 10k run next year. I know, 12 months is a long time away but this is a really great run that gets booked up really quickly. Its the Bupa Great Yorkshire Run. You can raise money for any charity you like. Mine is for the Alzheimer's Society

3) I am 10lbs over what I want to be. This WILL change.

4) I am currently rocking the water consumption!

Hope everyone is well
