It sounds like this Pub is maybe in Portland. Is that right. Rosalyn

Rosalyn Larson I am so happy to be on Maintenance.
It took 2 years but it was worth it. I am going to keep it in a 5#s range up or down. My Promise is I will never ever do that to myself again-----Rosalyn

Hello and happy Tuesday to everyone.
Today is my second day of the South Beach Diet, and I feel great. Who knew all of that sugar and white flour made me feel so aweful and what a difference getting it out of my life. A couple of my other girl friends are on this and have been on for about 7 days now and they have lost between 10 and 13 lbs already.

Sooo bored at home. My bf is at school darn that masters program is keeping him away from me every mon and wed until 10:00! emoticon

Anyways just eating dinner alone at home and watching the dog beat up her panda bear it's quite funny. At least I have someone to entertain me. emoticon

I am only 9pts away from 1000 wow! I could have worked out tonight but I will in the morning I am sore from yesterday! emoticon

OH YES if you guys are planning a Hood to Beach team I would defintely like to be on it, and I will drag the boy along as well please let me know if someone is planning a team! Oh yea and I think the teams are filling up fast! emoticon

Oh one more thing I had a wonderful surprise at work today! A fellow sparkler dropped in at my work and asked for me. I didn't know that's who it was until I walked out and talked to her! If any of you ever go to McMenamins Grand Lodge ask for me in Sales I love surprises! emoticon

Thanks for the visit Willow, I hope your party was fab!

Chanel emoticon

YEA we are at 2000 so I started a NEW POST, let the rants and raves begin see you there!!!

Lindsay,
I already have you and Kyle on the list for the team composition. I also have Irismedia on the list and myself. Iris has a longer list than I have, but I've only marked people who have actually committed to the walk.
I paced myself today at the high school track and it was a 13 minute mile. Jogged a mile around it and jogged a 12 minute mile....kinda made me ponder the point emoticon .
Great to have you on board

Hang in there. If they don't show, they obviously aren't as committed as you. If that happens, do your workout and come back to chat with us.

My first "biggest loser" club meeting is supposed to start at 7pm tonight. The group started with 9 people who responded to my ad on Craig's list. We scheduled the meeting and I email everyone asking them to let me know if they were planning on coming. Only 4 of the 9 responded. Then today one of those backed out. I am stressing that the last three may not show up.

It may be because this is so very very important to me. I have been working hard to form a support group and to be part of a group to help keep my own motivation going on this. That is why I joined sparkpeople. I feel that at least I have this site even if the local folks are not motivated enough to take the first step.

I am stepping. I will do a little work out at 7:30 if they do not come, just to celebrate my own committment. I am just feeling so anxious right now!
I wish 7pm would just get here already.

Leslie

Hi guys!

Chanel, I agree! I always log on when no one's around!

Lori..I can train for that if I know a rough distance, Kyles onboard too!

Janis, yeah The Horse & Brass is the one on Belmont, I love their fish and chips, sausage rolls yum, and you can get HP sauce!!!
Only bad thing Ive found there, is the pickled onions are disgusting (tried 'em twice now)! The waitress even argued with me that they were normal, I told her she was welcome to her opinion but my usual motto is don't argue with someone about what the food from their country tastes like...I'm not about to tell her how a burger tastes LOL.

Lindsay,
I don't think you have to be in top shape, but I'm guessing the walk is not easy. It's 127 miles in different legs, each walker will walk at least 2 legs. I'm pretty sure I speak for the whole team when I say that what matters is finishing it not winning it.

Soo I am work now, the interview went good. But aren't we always our worst critic. I hope I got the point across that I want to move up in the company!

We will see how it works out I am interviewing against 2 people already have the position and are wanting to swtich properties. But I am keeping my head up about everything. Either way I think I am going to get another job.

Thanks for all of your support I feel like I have so many best friends on here!

Hey oregon girl,
Well, Kyles already signed off! Hey atleast he got back on here:)
I made him a healthy version of a breakfast sandwich...2 slices of Whole Grain Toast, 1 scrambled egg, afew thin slices of cheese and a veggy sausage patty. Oh, and lots of ketchup. Thats one of his faves right now, and its round 500 calories, which seems to keep him going.
Were both pretty good all day, we just get the late night munchies LOL. Although I have lost another pound, so thats really cool.

I really want to do the Portland to Coast, I think Kyles up for it too...does anyone know how fit you have to be? I don't want to let you guys down, but if I had a goal to work for I know I'd pull it off.

Thanks, Lindsay

Kyle I am so glad that you can back me up in the car department here. Even though the car she wanted to get was a Ford Escape not Escort
Plastic parts is true. I have a Ford Windstar that is 3 years old and within the first year I was putting a new transmission in and freaking out because the car was not even a year old at the time. I was told that the manufactors put in cheap plastic parts within the first few years they need replaced and the macanics will put in better parts but who wants to pay for all that to get done. If you like the Escape ask them what work has been done on it and hopefully there is already and new tranmission that someone else had put in.
Kyle, what is your wife fixing you for breakfast?

after noon all!
The subjuct mater in here is discusting!! All this talk about femmi products and "that time of the month."
It's just sick! If you guys want to talk about that stuff you should make a forum about it!
lol... just kinda I don't realy give a rats behinde what everone talks about. I mean I don't get grossed out easily.. But am always up for a challange of who can be the sickest.lol. I'm just suprized I'm still a topic of conversation on the board. talk about a ego boost!
As for the ford escort I heard someone talking about.... all I have to say is that it's a FORD CAR!! plastic parts every where...so beware. Now if you want a really good car that cheap. you should look into an old subaru wagon. they are by far the best out of the old car catagory. plus they have AWD!
Anyway you guy or should I say ladys don't want to hear me talk about cars, as much as I want to hear you talk about um..... well.... you know... the thing
that happens... you know... lol.
Man, lindasy make'n breakfest. ummmm. It smells so good. blah blah blah.....

Hello everyone, hope you are doing fine Kyle, mixed in with all these females.
I bet you are secretly enjoying it. LOL.

Yes people tell me I still do have an accent.
I do not hear it myself, so I would say no I don't, but friends say differently.
Last time I was back in England, relatives said I didn't sound english anymore, I sounded like a Yank.
So I say you'll have to come to your own conclusion.
Do I or don't I. LOL Hugs Rosalyn

Hey Lindsay,
Lets hope with as little that was said about that subject he doesn't seriously go running! Now thats scary!!! LOL!!
I been giving my son Benedryl, a very mild dose and that seems to be doing the trick on getting rid of his rash. When I talked to the pharmacy about it they said just about all the kids in town had this?? What an odd virus......
Elizabethsheryl, love your strawberry picture! My daughter loves it alittle to much! She seen it now all she's been doing is asking for some!! Guess maybe were going to have to try growing some again this year!! She would love to eat them all the time!
Sent hubby off with his "new" healthier lunch today!! Hope we can all stick to this this time!

Poor Kyle he is brave. It was not me that was talking about that girl stuff and I never will. When I found out he was on here I kept my fingers crossed that no one would mention that junk and scare him but about 5 minutes later someone posted about that subject and I had to laugh wondering hummmm he won't be back anytime soon.
Kyle, I don't blame you.

Hi All,
Oh Kyle will probably never rejoin our chats if he heres any talk of "womens issues" hehe...he'll get that deer in the headlights look and make a runner! LOL

ELIZABETHSHERYL: I love the history detectives! Also Antiques Roadshow! Your comments made me crack up! LOL

My Mom recently got a cell phone and she's so funny when she's using it. For a start she'll ask you to stop talking until she "switches ears" hehe. And then she used to hang up on me everytime I called because she'd get the wrong button for speakerphone. She lives in Washington so we talk everyday and its taken about 8 months of "cell lessons" over the phone to stop her from hanging up on everyone.
She had 4 heart surgerys last year so it's been very important that she be able to call us or 911 at any time, otherwise we'd never have got her to try it, now she won't go anywhere without one! Cute!

Good Morning everyone. I'm off to a whole new start today. I got up about 3 minutes after my check in time at work. Got there and did my route. Had a cup of coffee (was too strong) and went to chiropractor. Have a headache but I'll get over it. Came home and ate a good breakfast. Not looking forward to the up coming weather reports though. Got some "feel good" music going on and feeling like dancing this morning but boy do ya look silly doing it in the computer room alone LOL.

Have a great day everyone and I'll check back later.

We got the kids (well, really the 12 year old) a cell phone for Christmas. Makes it a little eaiser when he is at one practice and I am at another. Anyway, it is camera, video, and mp3. Very cool, and so much nicer then mine. It is so confusing to me but he has it all figured out and he didn't read any of the directions. lol

I love PBS too, however I don't watch it much anymore. Now that my kids are older I have lost control of the tv.

Good morning all.

What a weekend! Got a new cell phone!! Okay this may not be exciting for others but I tend to hold on to mine FOREVER. The new one is a camera and MP3 player. had to make sure my friend Kendra could teach me. I'm just techie challenged sometimes. kendra and I were out getting quotes for her poor smashed car so she could negoitate with her insurance more. We stumbled across a 'sweet' Ford Escape XTL, fully loaded with low miles. It was in the shop getting certified but comes out today and I will be test driving it!! I am so excited. I think this is the better way for me to car shop, to relax and then to stumble across it. So cross your fingers. I'm sad to possibly be saying good-bye to my civic as is my sister but it is time. If anyone is looking for a '94 civic in good condition with just a few mechanical things to repair I have it for you. LOL.

Chanel- I agree with you on your friend's new bf. That was crappy. I used to live out by 185th and to go to Troutdale is not exactly an easy trip.

I had a date on Saturday with a guy from work. He'd asked me out in the Fall and I had too much going on to go. So he asked me again and I figured I should at least give it a shot even though I didn't think we had much in common. Well, I was correct. So glad I met him at the dog park to walk our dogs, gave me something to talk about. This guy didn't hardly talk!! I had to ask him questions and it was like pulling teeth to get more than three word responses. A friend said I'm a dating nazi but I don't think so. I just expect a date to be two way conversations. Anyone have any single guy friends, that talk, out there? LOL.

Okay, off to my day of meetings. Oh, forgot one thing, had a complete blonde moment....I swear I had my heating oil tank filled last month, guess what...I hadn't. I ran out of heating oil yesterday!! They are coming to fill it today, I have to be there since it is in the garage...ugh at myself.

Love ya all!

Jyll

I am enjoying life and living it. Isn't it about sliding into heaven with your body all beat up from enjoying life??

Morning Oregonians!

Elizabethsheryl, loved to read your excitement about the PBS programs!

Leslie, to get on the team map just go to the team home page (top of the page, white link) and scroll down the right side and click on "add me to team map". To see the map, click on the link right above the new members category. BTW...welcome to Spark People!

Kat, I never go near the white stuff any more anyway...just thought you guys might like to see the lastest One Day Challenge. Fun team I just found! I can do ANYTHING for just one day...and it might lead to a healthy habit! LOL!

Lori, do you keep a journal? Wasn't it just about a month ago you went thorugh another lull in motivation? Hmmm...could it be a monthly cyclical thing? Sorry for being so vague but wouldn't want poor Kyle to be embarrassed! LOL! If it IS cyclical then you can plan to expect it and not be thrown for a loop by it is my point. Just ride it out and resume your hard work after it passes like it did last time. Worth finding out, isn't it? Hang in there Honey!

Chanel....good luck vibes going up for you!

Gotta bet to work here...later Gang!

I hear there is a map of where everyone in this oregonian group lives. Where do I find that map. I am new here and am loving hooking up with others. And a couple of people not far from me have contacted me already. I love this site.

Can a computer be your best friend?

I LOOOOVE PBS! My favorite is History Detectives. One afternoon I said to hubby "Man, I would LOVE to be a history detective!" and he laughed and patted me on the head and said "I know, baby" haha. I'm a dork, but that's okay. I just think it's so neat the stories they hear about and all the stuff they learn.

Since I've been in school (online) and not working, money is really tight..so we got a 60$ antennae from Radio Shack that picks up HD channels (and regular as well) and so we get the local channels and any channels that are broadcasted in HD, which the only 'extra" channel is CW, but it really cuts me back on how much T.V. I watch, and I also tend to watch more PBS which I feel a little better about doing, although I should just be reading!

I think that moving the forum to a new page is a good idea if it'll help people with slower computers get to the messages easier, want everyone to participate!

Tomorrow is the furniture/bed move-day, so tomorrow night (monday) we'll be sleeping in our new place, I'm excited. Still probably wont be completely moved in until thursday or so, but it's still great. Then I can finally go grocery shopping! I'm SICK of fast food, and my waistline doesn't appreciate it either.

Chanel, good luck with interview.

I wish I had the nerve to throw everything that is left over goodies, treats and munchy stuff in the trash. But I sit here munching on it instead.. My willpower is dropping somewhat but I still want to do this thing so I know I'll be back to jogging soon :) I'm sure I'll be walking and working out tomorrow. I think right now part of it is the house is a total disaster since we've been trying to get rid of some excess furniture and other things.
I do know that once all this JUNK food is gone, we're not buying any more. I just need to get people to quit giving it to us.

Take care all and have a great day tomorrow :)

Hi everyone!
How are you all? Sunday nights are pretty relaxed round here. Kyle's watching the Simpsons and Gucci and I are hanging out downstairs by the fire.
Does anyone else here check out PBS?

Chanel...Im right there with you on interviews..scary stuff. Sometimes I try so hard to be relaxed I come off like a goofball and other times I talk so fast they can't understand a word Im saying.
If you take the 405 N, to the 5 you can take the Killingsworth exit shortly after. I actually live between Killingsworth and Portland Blvd on the west side of the 5. I used to commute from N. Portland to Beaverton...it's not too bad. Im a speed demon when possible, and it would take me about 45 mins in heavy traffick. GOOD LUCK!!!

Yes, Chanel....good luck tomorrow! And too much time to sit and wait will just increase the nervousness! To ALL who have interviews...relax and knock 'um dead!

Been a busy day around here today...not much posting time. Been busy getting some friends situated on the site too. Love having people I know find out for themsleves that this site is every bit as good if not better than I told them! LOL!

Roz, Ma'am....you are English? Do you still have an accent? I am such a sucker for an accent! How's hubby doing now?

Dang...being paged. Take care and have a good week everybody. How about one day of no whites? No white flour, no white sugar, no white rice, no white bread. Make everything whole grain and healthy! Your body will thank you and you taste buds will adjust! LOL! Baby steps!

Good luck with the interview Chanel! I used to commute that approximate route and an hour should give you plenty of time. Now stop worrying and get a good night's sleep so you'll be refreshed and ready for it!

Good luck Chanel tomorrow. I am doing a 17 minute mile and hope to be down to 13 soon. I will be up on the high school track tomorrow probably walking in the rain.
Carly - you are so good to through away all the goodies. I ate mine, but I have been good for 2 days and it is getting easier to be back on track.

Hey everyone!

Just got back from working out I decided to switch it up and do weights before cardio! I did a 13-min mile very excited! Now I have a goal to get down to 12

Well what else??? Oh yea that Job Interview I have in the morning I am soooo nervous everytime I think about it my hands get sweaty I am the first of 3 canidates so I really need to WOW them!

I am interviewing downtown on Killingsworth I wonder how far it is from 185th in Beav with traffic? Mapquest says it will take me 22mins to get there so I am going to give myself like 1hour 15 min? If worse comes to worse I will read my book or something when I get there at least I will be on time!

SOOO nervous I am not getting any sleep tonight!

Hey All!
Today has not been the best day, probably from the bad night, but I know tomorrow will be better... start of a new week. I cleaned out the pantry today and threw out all of the left over xmas cookies and treats. I'm hoping that I can start working out this week, even if its just a walk with the beagle... but the days go by so fast... we shall see.
hope you all had a good weekend,
Carly

When we get to 2000 posts, can we go to Group Forum Page 2? I don't know about you all, but I have a slow computer and it takes a bit to load right now.

I would appreciate it.

Hi Guys,
Today is a relaxed day for me, well sort of. I am not doing any housework, but still have to cook dinner. My dh stopped smoking a couple of days ago and is very cranky. The kids and I haven't said anything, but we where kind of glad that he had to work today. I feel so bad for him.
I am pulling out some very old quilting projects and going to finish them up.

Hi Windsongwillow,
I wish my hubby would get into Britcoms too, but I guess it gives us our own time too. One thing positive, is it got him on here chatting for the first time:)
We both recently joined Sparks People, it's pretty cool.

I actually haven't been out walking this weekend, we've had a really weird virus or something for a week or so now, and it involves really bad headaches that the cold weather effects for the worse.
We've just started feeling better this last day or two...so hopefully I ll we'll be up for a walk soon, I know Gucci will be happy about that!

Theres alot of members near or around Portland! Have fun with this site it's very informative and huge!!!
O.K. I'm in a crabby mood(pms'ing, oops forgot we had a guy on here, sorry!!) but you guys are cracking me up, sorry just the mood I'm in!
Irishmediea, I allways wonder why people sign up to a forum but then don't join?? I'm up to 49 members on a forum for twin moms but until recently there has only been 2 of us talking! We have 4 new gals joining in occasionally now, but what about the rest?? Why did they bother to join if there not going to say hi atleast?? I have pm'd each one personally and welcomed them and asked for them to come say hi, mostly I get I will after I check things out? Anyways pet peeve of mine, I've tried so hard to keep that forum going as I thought it would be interesting since we all have something in common!
oh well, gotta go for now, everyone have a great day!!

The OSUStyle guy doesn't bother me. But the email flame that I got from Lorabeth did. It was regarding the thread of the Kims. If you notice that topic is now off of the board. So I am wondering who Lorabeth is. Since I haven't seen posting form her---and the email I received was a FLAME. And that topic was over a month old.

Party--it was very nice. I have enough food to throw ANOTHER party. I will take some of it to each of my schools and share. But some of it is meals for a week.

OregonWendy is very nice. It was fun to meet her. I am looking forward to seeing her again in 2 weeks at the Portland Metro and Plus gathering at Sweet Tomatoes.

Looking forward to the snow coming Wednesday/Thursday.

OHHH ---- I am a LOST fan--okay fanatic. If you want to have a "date" night--come on over and watch. OR we could watch and chat about it on the LOST board (yes there is one on SparkPeople). Can't wait for Feb 7 when I am hosting a LOST Party.

I've loved watching the Public Broadcasting English comedy shows for years and years now. The whole gamut of them.

Over time, it's become a mini date night for hubby and I to watch them together. It's one of the few comedy tv things we both agree that we like! We've always called them "Britcoms" (get it? Like sitcoms? heh heh...). I'm always sad when they phase out an old one, or just start into re-runs.

Started the drive to get to the track more, and to cut the procrastinating and get our latest rescue pet (puppy Tasi) on a better leash/social training way of life. Thank goodness she has a stable energy big brother to look up to. But he could use a brush up on his leash manners and house greeting manners too. Sooo we all win by going to the track. Yay!

So we went to a local paved community track (too wet for the local barkdusted park track) and it was absolutely deserted. Granted, it was cold and rainy. But dh and I and the two dogs on leash filled it nicely for a few rounds. Fun stuff.

Anyone else doing/done a track or trail this weekend?

- Willow

Hey all,
Hope everyones having a nice day. Welcome to another New Person! (I live in North Portland.)

I so don't watch posh english shows! I just watch PBS when I get the chance, and they have lots of English shows like Mystery, As time goes on, etc. Kyle calls them "snob" shows because he likes to make fun of me while I'm sitting there drinking my tea and laughing at stuff he finds no humor in! And he'd rather watch Southpark probably LOL.

Now as for slimeba....I mean Matt LOL, His messages are always very scripted and unpersonal. So maybe he's just so busy he can't chat, but it seems to me if you establish a club, you really should be envolved. If we just keep talking about him, hopefully we'll get him to log on, but he's probably scared now. LOL

I just checked him out too and I agree with Chanel. He is suppose to be from Salem but is he really? If he has a problem with what we are saying he needs to show up over here and actually post something not stalk us with e-mails.

Hello and welcome everyone...and you too Kyle. That is so awesome that you and your wife are doing this together since you will need the support of everyone in your life to help you through this...and you have the most important person in your life right there next too you going throught it as well. I want to know what posh English shows does she watch??
Had a dinner party last night and everything went well. My hubby did all of the cooking and I am quite proud he is a better cook then me but only cooks about once a year, so what a treat. Our friends and us are into MX racing and last night was the first big race from Aniheim...we all watched that after dinner.
Today I will be doing the clean up and that's it.
