    Yes, it has been very quiet lately! Sounds like you are getting settled in back home quite well!

    Sorry that your first WW session did not go so well, but I am sure things will improve the more you get used to it!

    Well done!!

    Fantastic!! :thumbsup2

    The Jolly June thread is up, I hope I see all of you there!!

    Okay...I've been totally MIA in May. I guess all the end of the year stuff for work/school, my kids activities, and other stuff just adds up. I'm hopping over to June and starting fresh. At least I'm offocially done with work on Tuesday, so I should be able to keep up with the summer months! See you there!

    Great job keeping up with the running!

    WOOHOO to the CHAMP!!:rotfl:


    I think we all know that "too-busy-for-words" time! The thread has been super quiet lately, so I think we are all going through this. End of the school year, vacations, graduations, work loads.... seems like we all have full plates lately. I'll see you in June!

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

    Morning all! Well... the powers-that-be are conspiring against me again. I was in bed early, preparing for a good night's sleep to be ready for today's WW presentation (this time for my territory manager :worried: ) and wouldn't you know I spent the night tossing and turning with a headache. Hopefully it won't make me too out of sorts today.

    Kids are out the door early, so I am done with emails and breakfast a bit early, which is good. I need a bit of extra time to review my stuff for today's presentation. I'm just going to pretend that I am talking with you all.... good friends who won't judge and who aren't expecting perfection. I need to find a way to LOSE the nerves and have fun with this. And as long as I remember to hit all of the important points that WW expects, it will be fine. I may even bring along a small note with bullet points to keep handy, in case I lose my way like I did on Wednesday. I'm also going to dress down just a bit. I wore a dress with stockings and small heels on Wednesday and it just didn't feel like "me". Today (especially since they are predicting record highs) I'm going with walking shorts and a blouse with flat shoes. I think it will still fit within the business casual look that WW seems to be looking for.

    I had to laugh when DD sat down to dinner last night. The first thing she said was "did you lie to your DIS friends?" She had read my post (she tends to follow along here frequently) about ham and potatoes for dinner, but at the last minute I decided it was too hot for that and we had yogurt parfaits with fruit. So she came to the table with excitement about potatoes and was faced with nonfat yogurt and fruit. That being said, it was a good dinner that we all enjoyed. And DD really knows how to build herself a lovely parfait (lots of fruit, sliced almonds, and a handful of granola over the yogurt sweetened with local honey!). But that will teach her to be stalking her Mom on the DIS!:rotfl:

    Hopefully I'll be able to take some time this weekend to share some photos from my trip and touch on the highlights for you all in a mini trip report. DD has some good pictures on FB that she loaded from her iPod while we were there, but I don't know how to share them here.

    Off to enjoy one more cup of coffee before I hit the shower! TTYL.............P

    THANKS!!

    I'm glad you had fun even with the heat and crowds.. and I am sure that being tired affect the presentation but you still passed.. And sounds like you are getting back on track..

    Great job on improvments to you time!!

    HAAA yes I agree it sure it..and good for you beating your DS..LOL

    YIPPEE!!!!

    Oh sorry about the lack of sleep and it sounds like you are ready for today .. Silly girl to think on a blazing hot night you'd be cooking - we also ditched our dinner plans for last night and tonight in favor of grilling instead! (I thought I was going to make homemade Mac and Cheese tonight - maybe pasta salad instead!)

    No worries - it still was down! You'll get there!

    Well did a bit more shopping at the local Goodwill last night and felt like I hit the jackpot.. I ended up with 5 capri's, 1 skirt, 2 tops, 1 pair of shorts, and 2 pair of jeans - one pair of skinny ones?! WHAT.. OMG.. crazyness.. I don't know if it was because it was a good day or if it is just because there are more choices in the smaller sizes but anyway -- I was soo excited..:thumbsup2

    I did not meet my May goal and this week am only down .3 but no worries here - I am going to start adding some daily walking/work-outs into my schedule to get that scale moving.. My 25th HS reunion is 7/27 and if I can be down at least one more size (maybe even 2) for that I'll be quite happy..

    Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend - its finally hot up here in the NE and I plan on working my tan (my legs are ghostly white in my "new" skirt today LOL) and finishing up the raking.. see you all on Monday on the June thread..

    CONGRATS to all our LOSERS!!! and bigsis you look fantastic! goodwill shopping days like that are FUN FUN FUN!

    sadly, I didn't make my goal, I was at my lowest last week..the heat here had me back up 1.5 this week. UGH!! so overall, i'm down I think 3 lbs for the month..not quite what I was hoping for. but it's progress

    QOTD -- I learned that I absolutely MUST food journal everyday if i'm going to feel and be successful in dropping this weight! I also learned that not having AC makes me swell and i'll be thankful to be spoiled with it once again come Monday!

    a heart :thanks: to all who coached and kept this thread going all month!!!

    Yay Losers! :cool1:
    I was down 2 for the month - only half of my goal, but still down! Chicago threw me off more than I expected - I'm sure I will gain everything back on our cruise but then I will come join y'all again in July!!!

    Good luck in June!

    With that reunion looming in the future, I'm sure you'll have plenty of motivation for June!

    The heat is a definite factor...and since you know you are a bit swollen, you can forgive yourself at least for part of that 1.5 you gained. I don't tend to have issues with retaining fluid or swelling, but between the salty ham for dinner and last night's heat, I am definitely puffy this morning...so I stayed away from the scale!

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

    Okay...I'm officially signing off for May. See you all on the June thread!........P

    Hi ladies!:wave2: We're back from the MOST AMAZING TRIP EVER!! I only have a moment to check in as I have 300 :faint: emails waiting for me! Really??!!?? What did these guys do before I came along???

    The trip was awesome, the food was amazing (yes, pasta, bread, and wine EVERY day :thumbsup2), and I think we averaged around 5 miles worth of walking every day ::yes::. As soon as I load some pics onto an online photo album, I'll send you all the link.

    I'll be back when I can catch up some more but just wanted to say bongiorno! :goodvibes
