My favorite is Pooh, the one and only....and yes, I do like honeyHere's a QOTD--
Who is your favorite Winnie the Pooh character?
Oh no! SO sorry to hear it was the brakes! I hope it didn't cost you a bundle!Sorry, all! I took my car over and they discovered it was the brakes! UGH! I thought they were fixing them and then I saw my car. I said, is it all done? He said,"You want us to do them now?" I said, "Please!" Then I walked to the wellness center and then walked back to my house with the school bus driver. If my car is done by the time Izzie comes home at noon I will get a ride to the shop from the bus driver! At least I got a walk in this morning. This afternoon I am going to try and get the acs ready to put in the windows as it's supposed to be warm all week and into the weekend. Izzie wants to play with a neighbor when she gets home from school and then Izzie has dancing.
Going to start watching Glee. I will get to the results tonight and then the task of the FINAL RESULTS!!!!
I'm sure it's disappointing, but it is better to be safe in Florida then flying through a tornado Hopefully you'll have an uneventful flight on FridayWell we're still in Florida...
Due to all the really bad storms and tornadoes in the Dallas area last night many flights got canceled that were going to/from DFW. The soonest they can get us home is Friday. We are currently staying at a Hilton near Orlando airport. This day started off bad and got worse as the day went on.
We went to get checked in for Magical Express and they kept telling me "We can't find your flight number." Well I spent half an hour on the phone with American when I realized "Duh, Contemporary has free WI FI in common areas." I pulled out my laptop and looked on American's website, sure enough flight canceled. OYE!
We got to the airport and got through the long line at the ticket counter. They said "Oh we could fly you out of Tampa tomorrow at 745am. No thanks. They said the soonest they could get us out was Friday afternoon. So we went up to the Hyatt in the airport and they had no availability for tonight but tomorrow night. They gave us a list of hotels and I called Hilton Garden Inn. Luckily they had availability and came and picked us up from the airport.
Congrats to all the Losers and Maintainers this week--especially LTS!!!Mickey & Donald Statistics: Week 20 Final Week
Here we celebrate our progress and recognize our superstars.
-if anybody knows they will miss weighing in, just PM and let me know and youll be marked excused
First some stats
(staying within 2 lbs of their maintain weight is successfully maintaining!)
# of Maintainers Reporting In & Successfully Maintaining: 3
Congrats Rose & Mike, StinasMom & Redwalker
weigh ins----------------------- 21 (11 Mickey, 10 Donald)
losses-------------------------- 10 ( so if you lost you made the top 10)
Biggest Loser 11 Spring Challenge Week 20!
This weeks group loss is 4.3 lbs
Total group weight loss for both teams so far 1278.8 pounds! WOW!!!!!
Before the weekly superstar list comes the disclaimer. I am human and I make mistakes. If you have any questions please contact me. For your reference this is the magic percentage of weight lost formula - weight loss for the week divided by weight for last week times 100, that gives us the percentage. Now let me test that with my numbers for week 1, click, click, click goes the calculator. Yes, that agrees with the percentage on the magic spreadsheet. (btw if its been more than 1 week between weigh-ins, then the % loss is divided by the number of weeks, to keep everybody on the same basis)
Now let's get to the good stuff. Who were our superstars of the week? This time Ive done a TOP 10 LIST ! That criteria may change from week to week. Hey I'm in charge here and I get paid nothin' to do this so you better take what you can get! (and if theres something you want to know, just ask me!)

Need some pixie dust! Mom just emailed that she is doing worse and in a lot of pain. She can hardly put one foot in front of the other and if she doesn't start feeling better in the next few days they won't be able to come home. My sister is driving her to radiation as she is in so much pain. The pills aren't helping and she thinks the radiation is making things worse.
Hi Nancy. I'm sorry you are feeling cruddy. I hope you are able to get out and get moving today.aw, tracey what sad news to read this morning. i really hope they can figure out a way to ease your mom's pain. how frustrating to not be able to do anything. we will all be praying for her.
good morning everyone! we are still dealing with jet lag over here. at least that's what i think it is. the night before last thomas screamed and screamed in his crib. we usually let him just cry and he'll fall asleep but this time he FELL OUT OF HIS CRIB!! loudest thunk i've ever heard. and of course hubby is traveling until friday. always the fun stuff when i'm on my own.
i've been still gaining weight and not exercising. i've been feeling awfully crampy the last few days so i've been using that as an excuse to lay around more. but i find that when i'm stressed and overtired i eat everything in sight. it's a double whammy for sure. thomas was up at 6am and i had ever intention of taking him for a walk before mommy and me but these cramps have me not wanting to move. and for some reason thomas seems to just want to jump on my uterus all day. i swear this new kid is going to come out fighting!!
what are everyone's plans for the long weekend?
we have alot of house work that needs to be done. going away for 2 weeks makes for a messy house and overgrown hedges! we have a pig roast at our beach club on saturday that sounds fun. we are supposed to bring our own drinks and sides. anyone have any good ideas for a side i can make??
have a great day xoxo
Aww, Karen, sorry for the headaches and crankiness. Some of it is probably your body adjusting and some may be good old fashioned stress. I'm sure it is hard watching Brian go through the grieving process -- it is one of those situations where sometimes there won't be anything that you can do right. Hang in there. The passage of time is a great healer.More headaches last night which caused me to miss awards night here at school and skip yet another workout. This cleanse is becoming a royal pain in the butt! If I had to do it more than a week I think I would shoot myself!! Just the preparation takes so much time at night and then I end up not enjoying the stuff I am eating. Maybe I'm just cranky due to my lack of sugar...or maybe I'm just cranky today?
Anyhoo, I only have one student today which gives me time to read my Nook for the next book club meeting on June 15th - I am finally ahead of the game on this one! I'm not sure about my weekend plans. Brian said something about taking his mom to their beach house but I am not sure if I am invited? I hate to ask since he is really getting along with his mom (who I don't really like) and maybe they want to spend time together? I don't know. I feel like I am walking on eggshells around him lately....he's been staying at his brothers apartment since he is still having problems saying goodbye but the lease is up on Tuesday so he will be back here fulltime. He leaves for California on the 2nd to do a Mud Run with his cousin and will be gone for a week. Ok, I am cranky....
Well, need to search the web for Black Disney Fitflops in a size 9 ~ they are sold out at Disneystore.com I'll stop back in later...hopefully not as cranky!
Glad that you made it home safely and had a great time! Did you ride on the new Star Tours?Well, we are home. I am having some major vacation let-down right now. It was very warm--in the 90s, but the sun was out every day and it was fabulous!
Thank you so much to Lisa and Kathy for posting questions.
Here's a QOTD--
Who is your favorite Winnie the Pooh character?
My favorite is Piglet.
According to wikipedia:
Despite the fact that he is a "Very Small Animal" with a stutter and a generally timid disposition, he often conquers his fears and seems to want to be brave.
And I think Piglet is a very good friend and very kind.
Have a great day everyone! I will get the new thread up sometime in the next couple of days.
CC, with all the things going on in the summertime I think two or three HH each week would be plenty. I have a hard time when it gets to be any more than that even in the winter.Not much to say tonight. I PMed Rose and Lisah about this summer's HH and I now have some questions for all of you.
I was thinking of having 4 HH each week. Is that too many? Two? Three? Your thoughts are appreciated.
Hi SarahMay! I was just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing! Nice to see you!Thanks! I will keep checking back!
Tracey, sorry that your Mom is feeling so crummy. Hopefully they can get her some medicine that will make her feel better. Radiation is hard on your body -- you even feel like you have a bad sunburn. Unfortunately she is going to have good days and bad days as she goes through treatment. Is there a support group that she is part of so she can talk with other people who are going through the same thing? Sometimes I think it helps to hear that what you are feeling is expected if you KWIM. Take it easy and take some deep breaths. We are here for you.Need some pixie dust!

Sorry that you aren't feeling well, too, Nancy. That was a big time difference to adjust to. Sounds like Thomas will be showing you how he can get in and out of the crib on his own soon. I can remember how happy DS was when he could show me that accomplishment! Me, I felt like my freedom was going since I would have to watch him like a hawk every minute. We all managed to survive.good morning everyone! we are still dealing with jet lag over here. at least that's what i think it is. the night before last thomas screamed and screamed in his crib. we usually let him just cry and he'll fall asleep but this time he FELL OUT OF HIS CRIB!! loudest thunk i've ever heard. and of course hubby is traveling until friday. always the fun stuff when i'm on my own.
Sorry about the weigh-in, Cam. But what a wonderful time you are going to have this week-end! Here's some that it all goes smoothly and you and your family enjoy themselves. It won't be long until you are on vacation.I'm sorry I don't have time to catch up. We are in the middle of the crazy weeks I've been anticipating for at least 4 months.
