Erika,

Thank you so much for being patient with me. had another bout of sickies again :( Altho, I did have a great weekend with my boyfriend, altho we made poor food choices. Didn't totally fall off, but definitatly pushed it!

Is it too late to sign up for "Shape Bootcamp Challenge"?? I do have a resistance band :)

Sounds like you have a fabulous weekend, yay! I did too...lots of fun with my family and my boyfriend!

I was going to write sooo much more, but gotta leave work, have a great night!

Dancin' Queen!

I'm so glad you had a good time, guess all that dancin outburned the calories you were takin in my drinkin ;) ! Love those fun nights with the girls, I have one coming up this weekend, hopefully I'll have the same results as you emoticon

Thank you for the compliments, really makes me SMILE! :) I don't know what I'm doing wrong now, I update my weight, and it changes the ticker, to a lessor top weight, looking like I hadn't lost any weight, and it used to not do that...grrr.

Well if I don't talk to ya before then, hope you have one fabuluous bday!! emoticon


HUGS,
Heather emoticon

Hi Beautiful!

I'm doing great today, got a good 35 min work out in last night, feel good about it :) Thank you for the encouragement "Jumping right back on the path" emoticon

Oh working from home must be fabulous! I bet thats easy for you with an English major. Setting your own hours..yay! So your going to be a PRO at Nutrition and Exercise, you go girl!! (cute, "finally decided what you want to do when you grow up")

I work in Healthcare administration, for a company that is a healthcare provider but also thee insurance. Im in Membership Services, but we are the miracle works I'm told, we do so much, connect the dots between so many depts and being a big advocate. My company honors us every year, to let us know they appreciate all we do. I work with Dr's, Attorneys, member, billing, benefits, referrals, third pary liability, appeals, compliants etc etc etc. lol... Been here 6 1/2 years, and love it, definitely keeps it interesting thats for sure!

Awwh... that would be hard to be so far from your neice and nephews, and yes your right such a great age :)) Your Easter sounds great too, love lazy bbq's in the park on a sunny day.

All I can say about your rapid weight loss is emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and keep up the great work!

I unfortunatly haven't budged on my weight due to the cheating two weekends in a row, throwing off my whole progress during the week :( So this week I'm buckeling down, and I'm not gonna let this weekend get me ;) lol...

Have a great day hun!
