Yes Esp I have been out on the boat we had company up and we have been playing on the lake alot.Seems like every weekend we will be having company up.Which is good, it means I have to get up and be on the run.
Yesterday I spent about 4 hours at the beach with boys swimming.Yesterday a lady at the beach came up to me and ask me where I got my bathingsuit she liked
that it was a tank top and shorts.She was doing my old fashion thing a large t-shirt on hiding her bathing suit.Its a one piece but it looks like a tank top with shorts.
Jen I know what you mean about the rain,I know we dont need anymore as it is.Good luck on your camping trip.I love camping.
Everyone hang in and good luck.I have alot to do today and I better get started.I got to sleep in a little today til 8am.. Yesterday just plum wore me out.I sometimes think my kids think mom is a kid and can go like them....NOT....I am getting to old for all this.Well today we have a cook out planned at the beach so I better get on the ball and get stuff ready.
Chech back in later today...
Maybe you can start a new thread every Sunday and name it with the date.
I think my scale is broken. It says I gained 8 pounds in the last 2 days. Other than going out to eat last night, I haven't changed my routine and my pants aren't any tighter than before. The meal I had last night wasn't even that big. I seriously doubt I gained muscle. I just bought this scale too.
i weighed myself just a few minutes ago, and it says 174. i'm starting my diet again today, have kinda been taken it easy for a while, but now i'm ready to go back at it full force. i'm aiming for 168 by the end of this month. congrats to everyone who's still losing! take care and God bless!
LOL AP! i just read what you wrote on #7 about me! haha! you're too funny! Its actually been so busy around here! my daughter (who's 7) had her dance recital yesterday! It was wonderful! Of course she was the best dancer there! lol! We're going back tonight to see show 2 (differnt kids, but same dancing school)..so she can see it. She had to spend the entire 3 hours in the cafeteria last night. Poor thing. So we're going to go later But yes, I am cozy in my new house! haha! lovin it
Well I don't know what the deal is with my scale. Now it says I gained 5 pounds instead of 8. It's one of those Tanita body fat scales which up until now has been great. I'm guessing the numbers are off because I still have the big dinner from last night in my system.
I finally figured out how to control my eating habits. Don't go to work. At work, I sit at a desk all day and I'm surrounded by junk food which is too hard to resist. At home, I have no snacks to tempt me, I walk around a lot, and I'm constantly seeing my exercise equipment and a mirror which motivates me to work out. How ironic that I'm a couch potato everywhere except at home.
Haha, gotta try that one. Try cooking in an Italian Restaurant for a living. Talk about being tempted to eat throughout the day. "Hey, we got this extra Pizza over here, you want some"?
Not to mention I started there at the age of 16 while not only getting free meals but also all the pop I could drink.
It's no wonder I ballooned up to 245 after being there just a few years. (I'm a 6 foot tall male.)
It's amazing what small changes do for you. I was 235 a year ago Februrary. First I dropped pop altogether, (I've had about 10 drinks since than instead of 5 a day)
Than I started rollerblading a few miles a night. I switched it up and started jogging as much as I could and than rollerbladed the rest. I took Xenadrine to curb my appetite and it was a huge help. When I went off of X, I didn't change the way I ate and now the weight has not come back. I am now 6 ft and 180 lbs and jog 2.5 miles a day. It all started with simple small changes.
It's not hard to figure out how to lose weight but it is hard going through with it. Good Luck to you all. Those of you that have been around a while have inspired me on this board even though you may not know it since I rarely post. Thanks though.
I was bored the other night and surfed onto this messageboard. I've had a good time reading your posts. Some of y'all have great senses of humor! I though I'd share my weight-loss tip. I've found if I eat my meals naked and in front of a mirror, I eat MUCH less. LOL Just teasing -- I think it'd work though. Ha.
Donuts & Coffee: Your scale could be registering a gain like that if you had lots of carbs at that dinner of yours. Carbs hold onto water. Don't worry, just get back to your normal eating habits and within a day or so--the numbers should go back down. Atleast this has been my experience!
Sounds like everyone had a busy weekend. I just returned from Basket Bingo--I won a $12.95 bottle of hair thickening conditioner as a door prize! That's it; but atleast I got some of my $20 back. We started at 2 pm and only got finished at 6!!! Luckily it was dreary out all day or I would have been mad.
All I've eaten today is a protein shake for breakfast and a hot dog at bingo (only because it was free!) I'm waiting for the hubby to come home any minute before eating dinner. I'm starving; but I'm going to try not to overdo it!!! Wish me luck!
Well, guess I should go. I'll check in tomorrow mornig! Bye all!!
