Hi Declare!

Angelique - it's good you have something you enjoy to do which will take your mind off things, hopefully!

Nothing tastes as good as thinner feels.

Hi all

Thanks guys, your replies are always helpful to me, as I don't have anyone I can talk to.

A guy is coming up in half an hour to pick up my old camera, so that's good and I'm getting close to finishing my next reborn doll which has turned out well so far. I'm just waiting on some new needles so I can carry on micro rooting her hair, I'm using alpaca and it is very very fine to work with so I'm using a very fine needle hence my first 5 broke and waiting for some more to arrive.

Thank you guys
Angelique

emoticon Angelique - I really do not even know what to say but will be thinking of you and praying for a quick turn around

I have just finished my first week of 5:2 fasting and so far so good - I am going to keep to 5:2 till the end of January and then may go to 4:3
Current plan
Fasting days I have 500 calories and non fasting 1500 calories

if I go to 3 days I would change it to 700 calories (fasting) and 1600 on non fasting based on reading that still has me under what I "need" on non-fasting days as it recommends around 1800 a day on non fasting days but I will keep that for when I am closer to maintenance weight as if this works it will be how I eat for life

I also started a free trial at a gym and think I will be joining at the end of the week :-)

Hi All

I completely fell off the wagon and radar for just over a week. Everything went wrong, and I also lost that house as the owner did the dirty and has left us with a lawyers bill.
I haven't slept for 3 nights now thanks to an inconsiderate neighbour not even a direct neighbour who keeps working outside using hammers, welding equip and other tools, mostly loud hammering through the entire night, I have called noise control repeatedly but the council seem to have little power other than send them a letter asking them not to do it. It's really affected my health in the last few days, my heart is beating really fast and irregular. If you can imagine you just start to drop off and a loud bang gives you a fright, my poor heart has been going nuts.

Hi everyone, I met my comeback goal of keeping under the top calorie limit for a week. Took me two attempts. Hopefully I'm back on track now.
Hope you're having a good day

Hi All

Westchick I got a Canon EOS 700D. I had a 400D before.

I've been off track all weekend but I have used a lot of energy today, we had a rotten section of fence that had huge roots and trucks of Ivy intertwined through it, we tackled that today and got the new boards up and I stained it all. I am stuffed, sunburnt, I injured myself, my back is sore but dang the back yard looks great hehe So pleased we got that done at last.

I have a busy week ahead of me, I struggle when I have a lot on my calendar. Somehow in between it all I need to micro root my next dolls hair and sort things with our lawyer with the house offer.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, today has been beautiful here.

Take care
Angelique

Hi all,

Hi everyone I hope you are having a great weekend.

Great news Declare, about the house I am sure you are giving thanks for the leniency of the new owners. That will give you time to breathe. I cant imagine having to live back in NZ trying to figure all that stuff out. Even when I come home for short periods I feel like such an idiot as I don't know how stuff works anymore. So when I go to the supermarket they ask me all these strange questions and I don't even know what they are talking about. Getting petrol is a bit of a nightmare because I don't know how to use the pumps by myself. My 82 year old mother has to show me how. Good for the pride me thinks. I will have to face all this in the new year when I am home.

Hi Angelique the doll thing sounds like a wonderful thing and if you can make money even more so.

Well I just realised I'm running late for the gym so see you all later

Hi All

My Reborn hasn't sold but my next is nearing completion just have to micro root the hair and then put that one up for sale.

I've been off track with the diet today tut tut but I'll get back.

Looks like I'm moving to Tokoroa, we have an offer on a house. Just have to do the paper work and have a builders inspection done and if all ok then I will be moving in the new year.
I need to do some serious saving for the costs. Not easy as I still have some dental work to do.

I bought myself a new camera, probably shouldn't have just now but it's been an important part of my life over the years and when I move I will be able to take some great pics.

Hope everyone has a great weekend

Take care
Angelique

Hi Ros, yes BLC is keeping me busy, and I am loving it, even though this week I had a gain :-(

The budgeting is going well and so are the plans for the future - good news is new owners have halved the rent increase and we are staying put - this takes the pressure off as there are very few rentals in Tauranga at present and to e honest a move before New Years was stressing me out - They have also agreed to a joint tenancy between myself my son and his partner which will start them with a rental record - very important for the young ones as it is hard to get into a place without a history and references

Angelique - Hope you get a great price for your reborn and enjoy your next one, glad you are doing better. My eldest is moving to Wellington in January but we don't know the area at all so her and her partner will need to take a trip down there to work it out a bit and find somewhere handy to the university

WC - hope you are well and happy

Any other lurkers - hi and please say hello so we know you are there x

Hi Rosinvn

Thank you, yes I am feeling better still not healed completely but less pain now. I'm still living in Upper Hutt and still looking for houses.
I completed my 3rd reborn doll and he's on Trade Me atm, and I've started the next kit which I'm excited about as the hands and feet look so realistic.

Take care everyone

Hi all sorry I haven't been around for a while, Life has been busy and my attention has mostly been on the BLC- Declare you will understand I am sure.

I am doing well though. I have a Niece and her friend visiting me at the mo which is fun! but also had several other groups too, which keeps me very busy. Next week I have two sets of visitors, so this week is my catch up week including catching up with you all.

Declare- Congrats on the house sale. At least you know now the time frame and can plan accordingly. Also the budgeting too- good on you to go for help, sorry to hear that you were made to feel bad. I think it was great that you went, as you can only move forward from this point and it seems like you are for sure doing that. It is one of those cases where ignorance is not bliss as it would mean getting deeper and deeper into the black hole, but now you have a rope to climb out!!! and a realistic future to look forward to.

Congrat on your daughters success too. It must be a huge relief for you to see her moving forward and making good choices.

Angelique- It seems like you are doing well too. Congrats on all your effort. Where are you now? I trust the mouth is healing well and you are feeling much better and pain free.

WC great to see you popping in from time to time as well.

Well I have made bookings for NZ for next year, at the moment I am planning to arrive the end of Jan, Spend a week in Masterton with Mum and the rest of the family and then head up to Matamata. My organisation has a facility up there and they offer a leadership development course so I have decided that is what I will do, it is for six weeks, then I will have another couple of weeks meeting with friends and supporters before heading back out here. This will be the longest time I have been in NZ for years and years. I wonder if I will suffer culture shock! Of course it will me new challenges for eating and exercising so I need to figure that out as well as some other things too.

Anyway Hope you all have a great week.

Hi there,
It's not my camera thankfully, it's the lens so just need to replace that instead. Apparently it's a common fault. Least I'm not in for thousands.

Thanks Deborah, I'm just a bit shy on the flybuys to buy one but The Warehouse have them cheap it's more my camera that bothers me. Pulled out the manuals for a read :)
The reborn looks lovely so I'll still get something for him, if you want to know what they are check out my sparkpage they're on there. It is a fairly new hobby and it's a continuous learning process.
I'm starting to come down from that argh place.

Thanks :)

Hi WC - hope the weather is better up there than here while you dash around the place

Angelique - OH NO - it never rains ... I hope the camera can be repaired as to the reborn doll not very familiar with them however I am sure you will do better each time if this is a new hobby
Do you do flybuys? I got a chep dvd player with my flybuys points maybe something you can do too

Miss 16 got her NCEA pass today from the course she started after her suicide attempt in May. there were 22 on the course only 4 completed it and passed - I'm very proud of her - she has also been accepted to polytech next year - not sure if I said already so things are looking up for her

Hi All

Today has turned into a nightmare and I'm very stressed and down.
Firstly my reborn doll has a fault so I won't be able to sell him as I wanted but as a boo boo, and I put him together wrong and had to pull him apart. Then my DVD player is faulty, now my DSLR camera has stopped working. :( I don't have thousands to replace it and its been an important part of my life since just before I left my ex. :(

What else will go

Angelique

Hi All

I'm finally getting back on track, that dental procedure stuffed me for 2 weeks not able to open my mouth, eat solids or exercise.
I'm not moving to Whanganui anymore, there's no suitable houses there, so I'm looking further a field.
We managed to get our pond garden done over the last weekend, looking forward to do the finishing touches to the pond and put the fish in.
I've been moving along with my hobby making Reborn Dolls.

Hope all have a good day, it's cloudy and a bit cool here today

Hi all well I had some time off work (booked for my wedding anniversary before Myself and hubby parted ways) so I have been using the time to start on downsizing/packing etc for our move. The sale has all gone through so landlords have given us our date to be out by and its the first week of January so it is a pretty cruddy time to have to move etc and as we don't have the money right now we cannot move yet either so it looks like a move either right before or right after Christmas - it is a bit of stress let me tell you

Angelique - I don't think I have ever been to Whanganui - I am not even sure what is there lol - definitely on my bucket list to see more of NZ - my goal for 2015 is to see Napier

hiya

It was a lovely day yesterday we drove up to Whanganui, lots of things going on.

Today is windy and cloudy. No unfortunately, I am still unable to open my mouth or eat food, the pains worse now but the swelling is going down.

Hope everyone enjoys tomorrow off

Take care

Clouds and more darn clouds!!!! Yesterday was such a brilliant day with not a cloud in site.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend :-)

Angeliquenz: I hope your mouth has settled down now.. and now able to start eating ordinary food again.

Declare: What a bummer that your house sold so quickly... to have to move just before xmas too... but you have a place to move too so that is good... 2016 is going to be the best year for you :-)

Hello lovely ladies - well it has been a very up and down year and it is going to finish the same way

The house sold in less than 2 weeks from when it was put on the market and I could not afford the cost of moving so sought help with budgeting which was long long overdue. It was embarrassing and sad, I was made to feel really horrible but the upside is at least now I can get on track and move forward - better educated and better prepared for my future.

My youngest and I will be moving in with my parents from Dec 6th for about 4months and although things will be tight financially by April we will be in a place of our own again and in a way better state than now

Yesterday my son was in a car accident - he was not injured (other than whiplash etc) the good news is though his car is written off he was not at fault and statistically apparently most young men have an accident so hopefully mine will survive this one learning a lot and being a cautious driver like his mummy

8 weeks??? you must have the slowest growing lawn in NZ my lawn mower would die if I tried to mow my lawn any less than 3 weeks apart - even then it struggles

Hope you all have a lovely weekend xx

Hi All

Hope you all have a good weekend.

My face looks hideous after my extraction I have 3 stitches and I'm so swollen I look like I have a golf ball inside my cheek, I can only open my mouth 2cm so I haven't been able to have my usual foods but some of it that's soft and fits on a teaspoon that I don't have to chew.
I also haven't been able to do all my exercises as I don't want my blood pressure to increase and cause excessive bleeding.

Tomorrow my son and I are travelling up North to look at a house for me. So that's exciting.

Take care
Angelique

Good morning everyone... :-)

I do hope you all, are going to have a wonderful an exciting weekend planned :-)

Lawns mowed - hadn't done them for 8 weeks... yep they were long and due to the overnight rain, the lawn was wet and spent more time emptying the clogged up catcher... lol.
So that was a good lot of exercise this morning :-)

Thanks Deborah, I wish I was only 50 but that was a few years ago now hehe

I'm still feeling good, though not quite as energetic today. I had a blood test yesterday so it will be interesting to see if my healthy eating and drinking has made a difference to my condition, I've been very naughty and gone without my meds this week in the hope my new lifestyle has helped.

Enjoy your weekend

Ouch Angelique - well positives while you have toothache you won't be tempted by naughty food chewing hurts, at 50 you are probably brimming with wisdom already so no longer need the tooth :-) Hope you can find some relief of the pain each evening at least as toothache really sucks for sleeping :-(

WC - hope you are having a good one you snap happy, busy bee - always got something on up there in the City of Sails

I'm at work planning budget for plan J - hoping this one all goes through as I really have no ideas for a plan K at this stage lol - then again I never thought I would get to J either hehe

Hi All

Thank you and hope you have a good weekend despite the weather, it's raining here atm. I've got the added pleasure of having bad toothache, went to the dentist today and I have to have it extracted under sedation, it's a wisdom tooth but wedged just under the tooth in front and it's root has grown into like a hook shape so not looking forward to next Wednesday, pain until then and obviously for a while after. I'd only had a tooth out earlier this year. What upset it, was my healthy eating hehe I bit down on a pumpkin seed in my salad and dang that hurt been in pain since. I'm well into my 50's but it'll be the first wisdom tooth to come out.
I'm still feeling energetic and still rowing vigorously on my rowing machine, just hope my weight starts to show me the same progress hehe

Enjoy your weekend
Angelique

That is AWESOME Angelique - and welcome to the thread

Ros - you amaze me - you are doing so well

forgive the below for being negative but I need to vent

Life seems to be getting me into a very dark place at the moment - I really don't know what else I can cope with this year. There is an offer on the house already, if it goes through we will know by next week and then we would have to be out of the place before Christmas. On top of that I cannot get a loan either officially or from my family (which I hated asking for in the first place as you all know the issues there) sooooo I am really not sure how we are going to manage, could be living in my car (or couch surfing with everything in storage somewhere)
I have gained the last two weeks and am suffering terribly from Fibro - you know what they say Stress is a killer :-(

Hi All

My weight has finally starting moving again after a lull. I am feeling very energetic and this mornings burst on the rowing machine was vigorous instead of moderate so got out heaps more repetitions and I still feel like I could go back and do it again. I am really feeling the difference. I have replaced my coffee's with Green Tea with lemon, and my lifelong diet lemonade with water and eating healthy foods, nuts and seeds with a granny smith apple daily. I haven't felt this good for a long time, especially since being diagnosed with Graves Disease 5 months ago. My heart rate and blood pressure are both down.

Hi all,

Well the pace hasn't really stopped. The sermon went well and then we left early 5am monday for a week away with my staff- Some of the younger ones organised it so it was a busy time, but fun none the less, then I arrived back home friday night, washed my clothes. I arranged to do strength training early saturday morning and left for the airport again at 1:30 pm after having thrown my clean clothes back in the Suit case. Im now in a small village on the Thai Burmese border just out of Mae Sot. I am teaching here for a week and loving it. One thing about this place is I seem to sleep really well, getting my 8 hrs every night which is such a treat! Internet connections are a challenge though. I am connected through my friends broken iPad which sometimes works and sometimes doesnt so don't expect to hear a lot from me.

I managed to go to the supermarket in Mae Sot and I am able to cook my own meals. So eating and exercising are both on track. I will be back in Vietnam on Sat evening.

Congrats Declare on you weight loss emoticon Glad to hear that you have a good agent too as it must be quite stressful not knowing when it is going to happen and having people traipse through your house.

Sorry to hear about Mumsy's car accident, must have missed that news and yes I remember TF was heavily involved in caring. Miss them!

But great that you are still around and are moving forward!! Have a great weekend. Tomorrow is going to be a bit of a zoo as I have my PT appointment t the gym at 7am (no sleep ins this saturday) then a garage sale to attend and a Lunch seminar and then late afternoon a wedding in the countryside and sometime in between all that I have to prepare a sermon for sunday! So it won't be a day of rest for me that is for sure.

Anyway to all visiting here especially WC and Lisa Caroline- Have a great weekend!

Hi there, I am feeling a bit better and a little tiny bit lighter (half a kilo but it counts)

TF according to facebook has been busy with some family medical stuff and seems happy but busy - hopefully she will be back in here soon till then we will keep the thread going and think of her :-)

Mumsey has been MIA since her car accident so hopefully she has recovered nicely but I have no updates so will just send her positive thoughts and love

I met the real estate agent today - she seems nice and keen not to muck us around too much but of course could not give us any reassurance on how long it may take etc ... no idea on if there is a guestimate of how long an average house takes to sell I just hope it is not before Mid December because then I have till late February to find somewhere else and that is after Miss 19 goes to Wellington. My son and his G/F have agreed if I get a place with room for them they will commit to stay for at least 12mths soooo at least I know where I stand a bit :-)

Well best I go do some work - love to you all
Catch you soon

Good morning all :-)

Lisa-Caroline: yep I also watched the AB's play on poor telly too. Didn't turn on the computer until after the game.... as so many spoil it by putting up the score before us poor folks get to see the game... they do not think of others but themselves lol.

Deb: (((((HUGS))))) yikes I hope the virus goes away fast. And I also hope that your rental does not sell... :-)

Ros: Both TF and Mumsy have been a tad quiet of late... hope all is well with them both :-)

Its a beaut sunny day, so a good day to catch up on washing :-)

Hi everyone,

Debs emoticon It never rains but it pours! Wow quite some challenges you are facing but glad you are enjoying your family all in one place for this season. Are houses selling fast in your area? just wondering and I trust you won't have to move before Christmas. Glad to hear the kidney infection is better but waaaa now a virus. Poor you. Make sure you get rest and drink lots of water as this too can pass.

I too am enjoying BLC26 I feel quite inspired really though next week it is going to get more difficult as I have two weeks of traveling which means no gym, so I need to get more creative and try to keep in touch during those travel times. Actually that is most likely when I need it the most.

Sorry to hear about the work situation. Maybe it is an opportunity to set the record straight? Anyway it is hard to work in a poisonous atmosphere.

Great to see you again WC how are you doing? ages since we chatted. Have you seen anything of Mumsey or transforming recently? Just wondering.

Lisa Caroline- Enjoy your time back at the gym- go for it!

I am definitely back on track and have lost the weight I gained so now I am at my lower goal weight and wondering if I shouldn't try and go for another kg lost!!! Let me see how I do until the end of the week as I am doing the no added oil portion of my program till then!

Hi all, well I am enjoying BLC26 and am loving having my family back together, even the messy house isn't getting to me but my bad luck continues

I am now the subject of an official complaint to HR as I stood up to the work bully who has been terrorizing the office for over 10 years
My landlord rang last night and has put our house on the market
My kidney infection has finally cleared up and now I have a virus

sooooooooooo roll on 2015 LOL

ps please cross fingers, pray, chant whatever you need to do that my house does not sell before Christmas I do not want to have to move till February (after Miss 19 goes to Wellington then I can downsize) and landlord has promised an 8week settlement so as long as it doesn't sell till Christmas I will be fine :-)

Hi Declare,

Great to hear that you are doing the BCL yes it is a bit complicated to start and the first round I didn't do so well as I kept forgetting to log my info. But it has been good to be part of that group, though challenging at times for me, with my crazy schedule. They are a supportive bunch and It is great for me to have a group to do maintenance with.

I don't know about your group but the panthers have their own website with links back to the SP site and threads and that helps me quickly get on an get info and log stuff as well.

I am back down into my desired maintenance range once more after a bit of a hiccup with the traveling. So I did another detox in my metabolic balance program and am on two weeks of phase two of it just to stabilise my metabolism again.

Apart from the fact that I think I caught a virus in the weekend and had my head in a bucket most of sat afternoon and a stinking three day headache, some of which was probably the detox I am doing quite well once again.

not sure I can answer any questions you have but feel free to ask.
