Good Morning....Sunkeeper...you make me feel so much better about my crappy days! LOL....

To all of us, Newbies and Oldbies....We have chosen a path in the road...sometimes we will hit a bump, trip on a rock, miss a corner, and slam right into a mountain....but if we just back up a little, we can get right back on the path! I think I will use that as my signature...I like it!

Have a fab day my friends!

If FS has accomplished anything, it's taught me not to ever trust it.. LOL

omgomgomg (see my hands flapping?) what is yellow??? I'm YELLOW!!!! Gotta be a good thing? yes?

MYRNA- like him or not, I probably would've kissed him!!!

DIALUP - great gravy. I tried to figure out a 400 bg. Is that a REAL blood glucose? or did I misread it? I've never heard of such a number. Mine was 108 and the Dr nearly fainted dead away. Girl, you are doing some miraculous work! That's fabUlous. I guess you see U in the middle of that fab Smile

BBD5 (Dorothy) Nothing to do but start over Smile I was wondering about your chronic pain. My Dr. put me on an Advil regimen for chronic inflamatory plantar fasciatus and it works well for making the pain bearable for my 4 miles everyday, but it never really stops hurting... just wondering if you had any hints. Congratulations on surviving 5 years of twins Smile I'm guessing they'll start Kindergarten in the fall.

PDX Mom (Brenda) -- Welcome!! I'm a longtime Atkins follower, but have never had a ketone headache... thankful too! I don't know how long you've been married, but evidently not long enough!! ROFL.. My husband of (thinking) about 36-37 years has no CLUE what I'm eating, even if we are sitting facing each other at the dinner table every single day. Between cutting kids food, jumping up for forgotten items, taking someone "go potty" cleaning up spilled-milk-bowls-plates, retrieving dropped forks, fetching "seconds" and doing best/worst for everyone pretty much eliminates any challenging things like what I'm eating LOLOLOL... Of course, I normally just eat a variation of the meal so it's probably not that obvious anyway.
And, for future reference, you can just eat sausage and cheese!

ALMOST50NFAB - Ahhhhh.. "one beer and a slice of pizza won't kill you" ... well, it probably won't kill you today, just remind him you want to be around for a REALLY long time with him and the pizza can wait......not sure about the beer Smile
Forget about the dishwasher, the only time my hubby ever opens it is to look into it longingly for the ice cream scoop!!

RDRUNR557!!!! I thought you were a goner for sure!! Glad to see you. How WONDERFUL a great grandbaby! Oh gosh, I'm envious. Tiny babies are definitely my downfall. I certainly hope you get to make your vacation this time.
Happy coming up birthday! Just pick something low carb off the menu and remind that daughter of yours how wonderful she is to remember your birthday and how much you want to be healthy for her as well as yourself. YOU can do this!

SIA - I hope you are enjoying every minute with that 18 month old. They are so fantastic at that age. Learning something new every second of every day. It's mind-boggling to watch them grow and learn... plus, they think Mom is the ONLY person on the planet!

SUNKEEPER - Keeper of the sun and sharer of motivation. The first thing I check every day after posting my weight is your ticker. Look at you, on the downside. I'm loving it. YOU'VE GOT IT! You've lost it and you've evidently already mastered maintaining it.

NEW NORMAL - Nothing is so rewarding as watching someone "DO IT". Forget the "excuses" or the "wants" or the "gave-ins". You DID IT. You took what was available and made it fit what was best for you. No whining, no sniveling, just did it. I'm glad the scale showed a drop, but even if it didn't you should take great pride in your ability to put YOURSELF above all obstacles. AMAZING JOB!!

Okay, I've got my 4 miles in, need brunch, and some ideas on a few low impact exercises that I could complete with no equipment and sciatica. I only want to do about 10-15 minutes 2x a day. Any and all ideas welcome.

So, following a brilliant post by Sunkeeper, let me say --
keep yourself at the front. Nobody can be more "for you" than yourself. You are your own best friend. No one deserves more or better than you. Show yourself how much you are worth by towing the line, staying the course, persevering against any odds. Remembering that he who is not for you, is against you. Surround yourself with those that are for you and convert those you think are against you. Speak up for yourself. Take a stand. Make sure you show your self worth in your actions and words always. Be accountable. Remember that getting there is only half the battle, you want to stay there!

Wonderful Wednesday to you all,
Gina

So did the interview with the counselor but need to go back today. Pouting about dark blue nails waiting another day. Yeah, they are a bit Goth looking. And we can't all be Pauley Perrette's character Abby Sciuto on NCIS (as much as she rocks that look). But I'm afraid if I keep waiting I'll break a nail and I don't polish unless they are nice. *pout*

Pouting at the scale too. I'm still gaining/losing the same few pounds but I think it has crept up a bit. I am thinking of doing daily weigh-ins just to see the craziness of it (I have been just noting daily scales in my journal).

Welcome to the new folks! Good wishes to all.

108 is an excellent sugar by the way carb tracker. Doc told me 70-110 for fasting sugar, under 140 two hours after eating

Rowanfair... Pouting here too as my nails will have to wait until SAT!!! Yes, sadly wobbling around the keyboard hoping not to fully break the already cracked middle goddamn finger! I don't know about you but I like that one looking especially nice Wink

Pout party who's in?

You all are to funny! I like my nails to look nice too.....Er, , or should I say , I DID, and then I got a bunch of time consuming things to do....job, kids, home, hubby, and now my BFF's in Fatsecret keep me busy.....so, I gave up on the nails and am working on a nicer looking behind!

Pdxmom ; take care of the finger....that's a very important nail ....so many people will be waved at with it!Wink

Goodnight all...have a migraine the size of Texas!

ROWAN, do the daily weigh in. I finally had to just to get a grip on what was going on

DIALUP - OMG, seriously then, 400. That's more than scary. Amazing what you have done, on your own, to get that under control! I think my Dr is still laboring under the impression that mine should be under 90. Well, I AM trying. He doesn't want to see me again for 6 months, so I'm hoping I can make him happy.

MYRNA - I'm sure the cute behind is already there. Do your realize that you've lost 24 lbs SINCE your ticker quit working?

BRENDA - Yea, people can really relate to pureed peas on white walls Smile
Love having a new BFF!
To get your ticker go to "My Fat Secret" from the drop down menu, the go to "My Signature/Bio" and check the little box that comes after the statement "add my ticker..." BUT, I'm warning you, they are broken more than they work, but they are cute looking. Give yours a try!

Hello world, it's another great day as the green side of the grass is facing me upon rising, whew.

Gina, great job becoming yellow, next you'll be green and then blue, no where to go once your blue which makes no sense to me at all. I certainly get your frustration with FS, being blue is your goal????? I think we need to get a petition together and have that changed to pink or orange or something that stands out, hey, gold! You couldn't have said the words any better, if you aren't good to yourself I can assure you no one else will be. Time to get just a bit selfish for sure cause WE deserve it.

Rowan, hope the 2nd interview goes well, you can do nails any day but in this economy a job is just a bit more important plus it'll get you on a schedule which might be just the ticket to getting back to losses. You've been struggling for a while now, hope all of it clears up and soon to put a smile back on that face.

Jen, your just doing remarkable, what else could anyone say? Seeing the numbers must make you shudder, just think where you'd be had you not decided you were important enough to work on. I'm so proud of what you've accomplished and just know if anyone is going to win this battle it'll be you! I still can't get over your before and after pics, your just beautiful, inside and out.

PDX, it always amazes me how so many people seem to be living my life, I've seen posts that I could have typed. Certainly proves we aren't in this alone, we've got lots of others traveling the very same road walking side by side. The good thing now is when one slips there are lots and lots of others to help them back up again to get back on the road. Amazing how you can develop friendships with people you don't know or couldn't pick out in a line up!

Myrna, old buddy old friend, sure hope that head is down to a dull roar today. They can send a man to the moon but they still can't get rid of head ache or a cold and they think they can cure cancer.....yea right. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how well your doing, so love reading your posts every day, they always put a smile on my face.

Good to see some chatter happening, we all need the support of others. Together we can climb this mountain, together we can make it happen for each other. The best weight you can ever lose are the negative thoughts you have about not being able to do it, that truly weighs you down. Clear them out, get motivated, get mad, be determined that today is the day you will change all the negative thoughts to positive ones. You will succeed, you will do better and you will become blue on FS, as stupid as that is!

Morning all!
I'm typing this from my new computer. It's awesome. Sadly though, I lost everything on my old hard drive. Ten years worth of work and stuff - just gone - and I have no one to blame but myself because I didn't back things up like I should have.
I'm choosing to look at this as a clean slate.
(I did cry about it last night though.)
PMS has reared it's ugly head and I am emotional and angsty. I have been staying on plan though so, go me!
I'll check in periodically over the course of the day.
I hope everyone is doing well.
xoxo
- Toni

Good Morning everyone! Thank you guys so much for all the support. I am very proud of myself for getting everything under control and making myself important enough to warrant a change.

I want to share part of what drove me. I volunteer at our local county hospital, spending a couple of hours a week visiting patients on our Progressive Care Unit. This unit in reserved mainly for "frequent flyers." They are chronically ill and most are diabetics on dialysis, waiting for transplants in end stage renal failure. I saw a young man in in his 40s waiting for his final limb to be removed. His brain was gone from being in a diabetic coma. I cried with his mother, and prayed with her at her request.

That night, I couldn't sleep still thinking about that wasted young life and the hurting family. I rolled over in bed and felt everything flop over the side. My feet hurt, my eyes were blurry. Some will call it an epiphany, my mom calls it the come-to-Jesus moment, I tell people I heard God loud and clear saying "I have plans for you." April 16 2012, I recommitted myself to my faith and taking care of this temporary temple God has charged me with. Id like to hold on to the temple long enough to see what God has planned.

Clap, clap, clap for Myrna! Bravo girl, wow, 50 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. I have found if I log in one day on fatsecret.ca and then the next on fatsecret.com my ticker works, don't ask me why but it does. Going to tray fatsecret.au when this starts to fail!

Jen, that's a really touching story of your's but goes a very long way to making people realize how important being a healthy weight is. Life is short as it is, the years just fly by, we all need to take note of what extra weight can do to all of us.

Yup, pull up those big girl pants and get the job done everyone, your life may well depend on it!

Toni, sooooo good to have you back, sorry you lost everything, another lesson we all need to learn, back it up!

Hello ALL Smile

As a newbie I am still learning the lingo around here... Yellow, Green, Blue... I see that Blue is goal Smile) clapping for myself here!

I had a terrible morning and I must vent...
I weighed myself and got one number (I have an electronic scale with the fat and water % also) then took a shower, dried off and weighed again (yes, i am a dork, but I questioned the impedance on dry vs wet feet) and was a pound heavier! REALY? So, my skin absorbed a whole pound of water in a 10 min shower? Bulls##t!
SO, I am pissed at myself for weighing myself again, I am also disappointed that I cannot get around the damn number on the scale and the affect it has on my outlook of myself and for the day...

DH thinks I should only weigh myself 1/mo... Uh, no.

It's Friday! Weather appears to finally be warming up for us, sun is going to shine, birds are going to sing, grass is going to grow and all of us are shrinking! Mr. Rogers, it's a good day in the neighborhood.

Ditch the diet mentality, live a truly healthy life, the rest will take care of itself. Onwards and upwards, or, downwards if your doing it right!
