Well ladies, my "almost time to fly far, far away" is starting with a 2.4 weight gain! Here's to hoping the amount of walking I plan on doing and consumption of real, chemical-free food, is going to help get rid of that junk!

Keep up the great work and, as I say this to myself too, don't let the bad weigh-ins get you down! We didn't gain all this weight overnight and it's not going to simply go away overnight either. Thank you to all this month's coaches and Dona for hosting! I'll try to check in every so often, but if not, have a great rest of May and I'll see you all in June!

I think it's a crazy time of year for everyone. ESP parents/students w end of school going on. I've had very little time for "me" and my workouts. Down half a pound but I'm happy (sort of lol).

I have a volunteers breakfast at school this morning then quick allergy appt but I'm dressed in my workout clothes. I hate going out in public in them but I don't care. This morning will be my only time to get it done.

Have a great day and stay focused on the long term. It's hard to see when the scale goes the "wrong way" but this is a slow process full of ups and downs.

I managed to stay on plan eating wise for the whole day, but my chinese take out for dinner arrived wrong twice, so I gave up and went to bed!!!

QOTD for Pamela.....our 'must do' is when we go to DTD, we have a chocolate fudge sundae at Ghirardelli...got to be dark chocolate sauce though, not milk choc. We can usually only manage one betweek the 2 of us. Something I'd really like to do is a Wishes Dessert Party.......Despite being good on my diet, I could find room for those desserts, and also I'd love to be able to see/take photos of the fireworks without someones kid being in silouette in front of me!!

Some confusion on next weeks coaching....I volunteered for next week on post #6, but it never got updated. Happy for 50'sJayne to do it, and I'll volunteer for a week in June instead.

Still no exam results, and hardly done any exercise this week due to work/travelling...am planning on the gym tomorrow evening whilst OH watches the Rugby League on TV.

Will be back with WI in the morning, night all
Oh Yum the dessert party - we did it for the first time last May it was delish.. BUT....... even though we got a front row table that didn't stop this family from standing right in front of us... here are a few pics .. Desserts up first!








A shoot of the castle with some fireworks (with a couple of heads )


and the whole family who stood right in front of us for all of Wishes!

well I am down 1/10 of a lb for the week.. but given my gramps been in the hospital and we've been running around with all that .. I'm good, I'll take it.. On a happier note my Mom thinks he is able to go home today.. he did not have any pain yesterday (they blasted out gall stones and made the duct a bit bigger so he wouldn't have to have surgery) he ate breakfast and supper.. so it's looking much better!
Hope everyone has a great weekend if I don't make it back here at Lunch time.. OH and have a great and safe trip PlutoBaby!

Safe travels and bon voyage, Kimberly! Have a wonderful time!

Amanda, so sorry about your sweet kitty. Our animals hold a special place in our hearts for sure.

Susan, good luck getting your son's dental appointment made in time before the insurance switch -- it's a good thing they give you some notice!

Helen, sounds like a great week for you and that you rocked your presentation. Great job staying OP!

Magdalene, so glad that you had a good time at WDW. I love the trails at AK, too, especially early in the morning.

Very good point about staying focused on the long term and not letting any ups and downs derail you! Especially during the crazy, busy time of year that is the end of the school year.

Grrr, Michelle, on rude people standing in front of you at Wishes. It is hard to keep that magical vibe happens for sure.

I was down another 1.6 pounds at WW yesterday which puts me more than half way to my very ambitious goal for the month. I'm down 15.2 since I started WW in January -- going to try very hard to be down 25 pounds by the time I leave on my cruise next month.

Have a great day all!

Down THREE pounds today!!! And I even ate pasta for dinner! ;0 I always try to go low carb on the day before a weigh in, hoping for that extra ummph...but had a heavy carb day yesterday and still lost 3 pounds That is a stellar weigh in for me since I've sat at 197.0 for 2 weeks practically!

On to 180's!! Can Not WAIT!!!!

Other than the typical rides that we HAVE to do (Soarin, TSMM, BTMRR, Dumbo), and our obsession with eating in Morocco, we love to check out other resorts. We just hop around and enjoying what they all have to offer. But, I know you don't have much time there, so I suggest just having a blast and creating wonderful memories! Oh, and take a ton of pictures. Did you order PP or PP+? Also, they have a ride PP now that you can get at the ride picture counter. I think it's $50 and includes just your ride photos. So, if you're planning on riding a bunch that take pics but not doing dining or characters, that might be a great option. I love ride photos.

OMGSH!! Have a great trip!

Yay! Congrats on the loss!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once again, another quick check in while I have a short planning period. I have an extremely busy weekend with grocery shopping and ordering food for DSs birthday today, tomorrow we have 2 soccer games and a wedding, and Sunday we have the kids closing program for Sunday School and DSs birthday party (Plus DH works midnights all weekend!!). I doubt I'll be on much, but I'll try to at least read along when I can. I just realized I have 11 days of school left! Whoop! It's coming so fast.

I have to run and call our kennel to see if they have any room for a last minute vacation (June 7). We were invited with friends to Corolla, NC and we want to go even though we were not planning a summer vacation since we just went to WDW in January. I can be easily peer pressured into the beach It would be great for DSs because 2 other families going have kids the same ages as ours. But, our crazy, anxiety ridden, high energy dog needs to be kennelled. I would never ask anyone to take her into their house or her stay at home. It would be more work than having quadruplets, I swear So, off I go again. Enjoy your Friday and your weekend

Jill

Floss, I pm'd you about coaching in June!!

Been interviewing for non-executive directors all day today, but finally over, so now it's the weekend. Weather forecast is pants though, so may just stay at home and spend some quality time with OH. Looks a little more promising on Sunday, so hoping to fit in a bike ride!
