Thanks! yeah it'll be sweet. I seem to be stuck at this weight now..lol. I quit my job, so I have more free time now. That means I will finally be able to get back on the tredmill, so hopefully that will help.

Ha well at least hes not down like my bf. Which can be worse. Meh I guess it is all up to you and what your gonna do anyway. OOOOO and by the way your right, don't get caught up in thinking you'll let yourself go to a certain wieght. I went from 270ish a couple of years ago down to 211. Now I have crept back up to 229...By saying ok I wont go over 220, then 225...and now somehow I have made my way back up to 230. For some reason I'm having problems moving that number...oh yeah maybe I'm being a lazy arse...yeah I think that is it. :P

Ok, I figured it out!!! I wasn't getting the whole team thing, but I got it.

Well, I've been floating 5 pounds around for a while. Between 32 hours of school and 30 hours of work....I havn't been taking very good care of myself. I've been trying to tredmill here and there, but not like I should. On the positive side, at school I eat alot of soup(instead of the junk I used to eat at work) so I guess I have to look on the bright side of things

I have taken various diet pills over time. None really worked but I don't take them like I am supposed to. Who can take 6 pills a day. I would be at war with my legs and so bugged out I couldn't function. I just got the Leptopril and I tried it yesterday, I noticed it made my stomache hurt but it didn't really effect me. I didnt take the recommended amount either.

Diet pills....the cheap ones don't work, the more expensive ones can be addictive and never work in the long term because once you come off them most people have a hard time keeping the weight off, kinda the same as sleeping pills in that sense. I did a lot of research on them a last year (hoping for an easy solution...lazy me haha). Green tea is a good appetite suppressant though, also speeds up your metabolism a little, when I'm being good on my diet I drink it and it does make a difference.

It was my birthday yesterday so I did fall into the cake and pizza trap...eek. I'm trying to get myself motivated enough to exercise today, but alas...I hate it. Wish I could afford gym equipment!

Hey hey Ladies,
Well I am stoked we all crawled back, that was easier than I thought.
I knew I should have copied that last post.It was funny to. I said to many bad words apparently. I forgot I have to clean up my potty mouth here. I have been good thus far. However, we are haing a tailgate party at work today. I swear it's not as white trash as it sounds *lies and waddles off to get a hotdog*
I am gonna do some swiss ball crunches and 30 mins on the dreadmill tonight. Anybody else got bragging right?

Any opinions on diet pills? *braces self*

Well...I'm still here! My weight has been going up and down over the last month: I lost 3lb's, put on 4 the next week...lost 4 again, put 3 back on. It's driving me crazy! It would be cool if we could get the group moving again - everyone's so supportive of each other on prd, we definitely need some of that here.

Hi, I hope you don't mind me crashing your thread but I was so excited to see a PRD group! I'm not actually a member there, have been lurking since the site went up, but it's the best forum on the net...so yeah. I see the thread hasn't really been active in a while, just thought I'd drop in and say hey - nice to see people with the same interests as me.

Hi Ladies,

Long time. I have been busy as usual! Not making purses or parenting, but just being that single gal in the city!

My drawing classes at UC Bezerkley are interesting. I have taken a lot of art classes in my life but none as "progressive learning" as this. We are doing things like listening to music and scribbling how we "feel" and doing group drawings where we rotate around the room. Its fine and all but they should call it interpersonal art class, not drawing. I feel sorry for anyone who actually wanted to learn to draw. For those of us who have taken art in the past its just a different experience I guess. But, I really did want a refresher, havent drawn for some time. Oh well.

I am still doing tennis, but not really getting any better, and swing dance lessons start up this weekend. I'll let you know how that goes cause I am not the most coordinated person in the world.

Went up to Healdsburg this weekend. Its another wine country region, like Napa or Sonoma, just not as well known so not as crowded. I have a friend in San Diego who does sound for various bands and has moved away from touring with Rock bands to doing shows here and there with Jazz bands since he got married and had kids. He hooked me and a friend up with all access passes for free food, wine, hangin out backstage and half off all the bottles of wine I wanted to purchase. Not a bad gig.

On the flipside my boyfrined and his friend have embarked on a project of rebuilding a little yellow schoolbus and pimping it out on the inside. They park it in Oakland near his friends house and it got stolen last week. I spent the better part of the week trying to talk him down, he was pretty upset. He got it back finally but they had taken tons of stuff out of the inside so hes bummed - me too, it is pretty cool.

Jennifer - I believe you about the tattoo not hurting. I have one, got it some time ago, but it didnt hurt me either - it was more of an initial strange feeling that you just got used to as it went on. I didnt get one on my foot though, so I can imagine that would be a different pain threshold test alltogether.

So sorry to hear about your step brother, my thoughts are with you and your family.

Michelle - great job on school! My roommate is back in school after a hiatus and she is having a tough time getting the grades. Not sure I could do it either - good thing I am done with that and just take fun classes now.

And on to that pesky subject of exercise and weight loss. I have lost a whopping pound in the last two weeks. Seems I have been going out and dining and drinking a bit too much and not going to the gym enough. Trying to curb that now, back to getting up at 5 to go in the morning and watching what I eat. I stopped tracking it and I think that was a bad idea.....need to start keeping tabs on myself again! And we all need some pep talk - we can do it!!! Just need to ignore the warmer than usual weather and go - I have found that the early AM gym visit helps even though I hate getting up that early. Its just not so horribly hot then. Listen to me, it never gets hot in San Francisco, but because of that 85 feels brutal to me. haha, I should go somewhere else for a while. I do like 85 if I'm not exercising - its nice.

Talk to you soon!

Hey, hey, & hey! It seems like forever since we've talked. Or is it typed? The whole family thing is working it's self out. It seems that I knew alot of the details before my daddy was sure of them. When he started telling me , I told him that I had known for a week. He seems a little shocked, but that's what happens when you have a computer & too much time on your hands.

I can't remember if I told you or not, but he got a full military send off. Last Thursday there was a military memorial service, with the whole 9 yards again. It turns out he was going more like 130 when he hit the car. The investigation has been re-opened because a witness said they were lokking for the wrong colored bike. It looks like this might be going on for a while.

Honestly, the tattoo didn't hurt. Nobody seems to believe me, guess I'm one tough broad. There's a point hat goes sorta between my big toe & the next one that was a little "tender". Other than that it was fine. I wanted to get a new one on my back when I lost the 40lbs. I just can't seem to do it. My buddy jumped 6 weeks ago. Not sure if that was good or bad. I feel like I've been on here so long it would be weird to find a new one now. One of my best friends is on, but I talk to her everyday-ish as it is. We started walking a little over 3 mile each day at the park last week. That was going pretty good, til yours truely decided t push the entire yard @ high noo on a 96 degree day. Can you say "heat stroke" boys & girls? I joined a challenge to stay on the low end of my points everyday for a week. I think I managed it 2 days. I suggested to David last night that I go on the Bud Light diet. I figured I would pass out before I hit my calorie limit. The sad truth is I can drink a whole lot. I would end up going over on that one too!

I think what you mean is "yo WERE busy". I haven't done a whole lot since the festival. Luckily they go back to school next Monday. I'm pretty fond of my kids, but school is really a good thing. I went from cranking out several a day to no pressure. Now I need some motivation in that department, too. Here's the really good news. I finally found the skull strings I was looking for. I just got them Saturday, so I'll start on it as soon as they go back to school. Sorry it's been so long, but I knew you wanted them.

Yeah, the bowler WAS cute. I sold her on the last day. A lady bought it for her daughter. She came back later & asked for a bag- I think she noticed that her panties were around her ankles & didn't want anybody else to notice. Some people shouldn't be so stiff. I ain't making these for the church bizarre. I take that back. I have one I do in November. But of course you have to modify your stock.

The thought of me having my own website is nice but not likely. Dummy here can't even burn a Cd. I tried several times yesterday, but it just wasn't happening. Yes, I admitted it. I couldn't even figure out how to upload pictures of my purses on punkrockdomestics. I just gave up & I really wanted to put some on there!

And yeah, I think the weight issue is the whole point. Sad but true. I should have lost 40lbs by next month. Considering all the ups & downs I've pulled, I have equalled out to about 5 pounds. Is hanging your head in shame repeatedly considered exercise? We really need to get on the ball & think of something. Work on it Michelle. MOTIVATE ME!

Jennifer

Jenn,
Good god girl your family seems a bit like mine..heh Well lies won't solve anything but they do make them feel better for the time being I guess. It is sad that myspace is a good source of news but its true....
On to more kick arse things..Your tattoo is awesome. Did the foot hurt more than anything else you have had done? I am planning a piece for the right side of my chest right now..ouch

omg omg omg you HAVE been busy..Your purses are kick ass...seriously you need to sell them in a venue where they will actually sell. I love the bowling girl purse..

ok I know I keep talking about my website, but I'm actually getting started on it now. My boyfriend and I are working on it. It's pretty hardcore, I didn't know how much work it would be. I am rambling because I am making a traders and sellers bay page...dah dah ta dah you can sell them there.. They are good enough to have their own website, but you can use mine until you get yours. I'm really not blowing smoke either..heh Or maybe you should look into getting a consignment in some shop around there..anyway do I really have to talk about weight? OOOO is that what this site is for? crap...ur ah um my pants are getting tight, ugh I get the muffin effect when I wear them now...I threw away all of my fat clothes, so I'll be running around all naked and scary if I dont watch it...I just still can't bring myself to workout..Like I'm allergic or something...I just don't want to sweat..at all....how lazy is that? It's so hot here that I bust a sweat making coffee...

I finally put up a picture of the foot tattoo. It's at the beach, so the sandy feet are OK! How did things turn out with the situation at work?

Have a good day! (I sound like Mary Poppins...SHOOT ME!)

Hey Michelle!
You know me. That picture won't be up long. I sorta joined a challenge before I was readyto commit & they talk about getting back on the wagon. You know, cute cowgirl talk. So of course I had to throw one up there. She was cute & not showing too much skin.

Today is Kelon's funeral but obviously I'm not going. My older brother's were supposed to go (& make me look bad for not going) but it's not happeneing. When I found out about it, it all sounded a little weird so I started a search to see what I could find. He was from Tx but station at Ft Carson Colorado. Pretty much info I couldn't get from the local paper. I swear I wasn't doing it to be nosy or anything, things I was being told just didn't make sense. My daddy & brother both saidd that they "knew" he didn't hit anybody, but they didn't have any details. Within about 2 hours of my sister-in-law telling me I had found pics of him on hi myspace sitting on the bike & news footage from the wreck. His name was not mentioned but it was a black critch rocket, same type of black helmet, & a white shoe was laying in the road just like in the pic. I didn't tell anybody but hubby & my friend Lori at the point. That night I got the same story from my daddy
& that even though he wasn't messed up, it would be closed casket. The news article said that 2 guys were speeding near an interstate & one popped a wheelie at the same time a cop just happened to go by. He turned his lights on & they went faster. He stopped chasing them & called for help to keep anything from happening. One (Kelon) ended up hitting a car & was thrown 100 feet away. They were estimated at going between 90-100. The wreck closed the road for over 3 hours. The 2nd guy left the scene, but I haven't checked lately to see if they have found him. I didn't find out until the next day that it was really him. I got on the message boards here & a few poeple in Colorado Springs sent me a link to an article that named him. Before I could read the whole thing, I called me s-i-l. Then she said that my brother had been acting funny about the whole thing & wouldn't answer anything she asked him. A little side note here: My daddy & brother are more like friends that parent-child. They will keep secrets for each other & on down the line. They also treat me like I have never aged a single day since Mama died. I will always be 15 to them . They don't think I can handle the truth about anything, & that is complete crap. Anyway... He was almost 21 & did something really stupid. On the other hand, no amount of lying will bring him back & nobody feels ant less pain for them. Knowing the facts won't change anything. With all that said, he is getting the full military treatment today- 21 gun salute & all. Then the Army is having a memorial service in CO for him next week.

Oh, my granny is back in the hospital now. Congestive heart failure this time. I went to the hospital yesterday & she seems pretty good. They are only talking a few days & she'll probably be sent home instead of back to a nursing home as usual. No wonder I'm back up to 200 lbs.! I was curious about where I picked up this extra load!

I guess you see I'm back to my usual epic length speaches. Next episode- WISECRACKING 101. Pencils ready...

Hey...

Today started of pretty good. I woke up earlier than usaully to the sound of my 2 girls making breakfast. Ate healthy, took them for a little walk. I even got on the eliptical machine. That should have been a BIG sign that there would be trouble. I found out this morning that my step-brother got killed Monday.

Kelon would have been 21 in 2 months. He survived months in Iraq, but died in Colorado on a brand new crotch rocket. He hadn't even made the first payment yet. The whole thing seems so bizarre. I checked his mypace & alot of his friends are already putting things up. I guess that gives the proof, but it still doesn't seem posible.

Hi Ladies,

Glad to see you back. I have had a bad week myself - no pounds lost, only 2 30 minute trips to the gym. I need to get back with the program!

It seems like I have little free time lately, and I am trying to sneak in time for coooking healthy and working out.

That being said, other parts of my life are good. I am taking a drawing class at UC Berkely which is pretty cool. I start up tennis again in 2 weeks and I am starting swing dance lessons in 2 weeks as well.

Work is a bit crazy, I am covering for my East Coast counterpart while she is on maternity leave - so doing 2 jobs, yuck! So, with everything I am involved in it looks like I will be one busy gal for the next month or two.

That being said, I am trying to figure out how to get the workouts in......any suggestions?

Oh, yea...and I am dating someone new, which always eats into the daily routine (in a good way!).

Drue

Michelle,
Glad to have you back."I never know what to say in these situations, so we'll just leave it at that.

How can you knock Southern food? Let's just all say a little prayer for not being yankees. And the hate mail rolls in... now.

No motivatioal stories, just a lot of ship-jumping. My "buddy" jumped first- about a month ago. Not a real loss. I feel a tad bit bad for saying that. All we ever talked about was ball games & how we were going to start over. Not a lot of help. All of my "local" people decided to stay home instaed of coming to the festival. A few of them have never been back on since then. Once again, not a big deal. Just a little weird how instaed of 1 or 2 overboard the SS Minnow, it seems like the damn Titanic went down all over again.
I understand the whole heat issue. I started cutting the grass at 6pm & thought I was going to die! It doesn't help that I have been sitting on my ass for some time, either. I was actually down to 195 a few weeks ago. I don't reside on the 200 blockyet, but I seem to be looking at a piece of property over that way. I'll let you know how the neighborhood looks.

On the home front, all-star tounaments are over for my kids. Two of our softball teams are going to state. Glad it's not us. Reagan had football camp this weekend. We have about 2 weeks before practice starts. It was kinda weird being home tonight. Nice, but weird. David keeps talking about, dare I say it, "healthy things". Shriek!!! He honestly seems interested, so I feel guilty for gaing a few pounds back. I just don't have the support that I want & need. He doesn't mind how much I weigh. I guess most people would look at that as a good thing. It keeps me from being motivated.

Oh well. Glad to have you back. It's nice to be missed...

Jennifer

Hey guys,
So I'm back. God it was a long sad trip.....You know they might as well put a side of grease to every southern cooked plate for dipping, for all the good it did me. My boyfriend and I are starting a competition..The first one to lose wins, um well we haven't figured that part out yet. I have to lose 20, and he 30 because its easy for him to drop weight *rolls eyes*..

I have no motivation to workout in this death heat. This week it has been 106 with a heat index of 111..omg I am not built for this weather...

So now I have some admittions...ugh My lowest weight on here was 211 I am up to 222 now...Makes me super depressed, and it seems like there was nothing I could do to stop it..um yeah 13+ hours in the car each way sitting on my arse and eating fast food..nice

Oh well, got any motivational stories for me?

btw shhhhhhh I missed you guys..heh

Michelle - I am so sorry to hear about your Grandfather, my thoughts are with you.
Let us know when you are back. (((hugs)))

All is okay here - lost a few more pounds, but might be bad this week with the 4th and many events planned this weekend. I made it through my B-Day weekend and still lost 2 lbs so maybe I'll be okay. Still going to the gym 6 days a week and drinking my water - that may be my saving grace.

I have also enrolled in lots of activities to keep me busy - tennis, an art class, swing dance lessons...and I met a great guy so work dates in there also. I am a busy girl....hopefully this leaves less time to eat!

Sorry I have been out of touch - I never got a message that there were new posts here. I will be more diligent in checking.

Take care everyone and have a good weekend.

So.....
How's it going? Me not to swanky right now. I have had about 2 hours of sleep. Things are going pretty well aside from that. I have about 2 weeks left in this term of school, then I am taking a much needed break. I don't know what has happened in this last week but I gained about 6 lbs. I have to stay right on top of my weight or I gain. I can do like 3lbs in a day if I do not pay attention.
Meh anyway I'm gonna say the dreaded I'll be back on track Monday.My bf and I are gonna start a bet, I have to lose 20 and he 30 the first one wins some kind of sexual favor, or something we haven't decided the prize yet. Now I know I would win if he made it something I really wanted. Maybe I should make him buy me the new sidekick instead :P A 400.00 phone *shakes head*

So what's new with you guys?

Michelle

Michelle,
There was nothing special about the little guys, just trying to pick something different. It has a lot to do with the whole posting thing. Somedays it works, other days you check just to see if people are checking for a pulse & nohting. Basically, sticking up a pic let's me see if anybody else has been on here. A whole lot better than "hello, desperately bored here..."

To sum up your question, ain't lost a damn thing. Now that most of the stress is gone, I've gained 2 or 3. I'm walking tomorrow with a friend during softball practice. Maybe that will spur the saddlebags into action. The weether here has been terrible too. Instead of a light sprinkle every afternoon, we get a flood. It usually clears up, bet not today. Reagan has a pool party at his coach's house. Or not.

I was reding a thread on here yesterday about healthy weight calculators. I went to several sites & the results were interesting. I wanted to get down to about 160. For my height & framethey said I should be around 145-159. I think I was pretty accurate for just guessing. One of them was so way off. I t said I should weigh 114 lbs! A friend's son is going into 5th grade & he weighs 109. He's not even that big. I think I'll pass on that one. Here are 2 if you are interested- healthatoz.com & hallsmd.com

The desire to get the weight off is there, but the motivation seems to be hiding. I'm the type that really needs some body holding my hand or threatening me, which ever is more appropriate at the time. Any ideas?

JEnnifer

Hey Jen - I know what you mean. I work in "no anti-conformity allowed" corporate america, and I notice the difference in how I am treated with how I look now. That is okay, I think I got the extremes out of my system years ago - no new hair color to try anymore, and now that you can get a body piercing in a sanitary, easily accessible enviroment it has lost its appeal to me. On the flipside though, when I go with my "conformist look" to shows and what not I feel like I am looked at the same way sometimes. So, no matter what I just dont give a crap. I do what I want to do, look how I want to look and if anyone has a problem with it oh well. It really doesnt even make me angry, I just laugh because there are good an bad people in ALL walks of life - how you look doesnt define that. So dont worry about those Wal-Mart shoppers - they just arent in the know about good people.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Why in the hell do you send me more fabric to look at!?! You sure know how to stick it to the man. I had already seen that one on a different site, but it's still cute. I really liked the "flaming skulls" in gray. But by far my favorite part was the "get in touch with your DARK SIDE" crap. It's like nobody in this pathetic world is supposed to be an individual. I'm sitting here now wearing a t-shirt I made out of one of the pin-ups (an Elvgren in a white dress sitting on a red go-kart) with my trusty black Harley shoes w/ flames. Do I ever get stopped & asked where I got that "cute" shirt? Hell no! I get stared out by people who don't even have the balls to say they find it offensive. I don't even care what people think of me most of the time anyway. I go through life looking "normal" about 90% of the time. But when I really feel like being myself, it's like people want me to be ashamed of who I am. I think some people see it more as an act because I am normal most of the time. I've got one thing to say to anybody that feels like pissing me off as I stroll through Wal-Mart today- Stare at your own risk... these shoes ARE steel-toed. And on top of all that I am a damn good mama.

OK. I have no idea where all of that just came from but I was on a roll. I swear to you I'm going to get working on your purse, but I haven't found the skull strings & don't know if I'll be able to. I may try to use the piece I have left & work it in somehow.

The happy lady is off to make her grocery list...

Jennifer

Hi Kitty - If it makes you feel better, I was with my ex for 3.5 years and I was at my sparkpeople goal weight going into that relationship. It was when it started going south that I started getting bigger (about the last year we were together). When we broke up I said "the hell with it, I am already 20 pounds heavier, I'll quit smoking, whats a few more!", and then I got the office job after running my ass off in retail for 15 years. Needless to say, a few more turned into 25 more. Talk about excuses, I didnt just gain a few, I gained a lot and in the course of a little over 2 years! And in my mind had an excuse for all of it. I know that each of these can cause SOME weight gain, but I was stuck in loserville about justifying it. It wasnt until I saw a full body photo of myself that I said Holy s#$@, what have I done!? Sounds like we are all in the right place, and it really is sweet revenge when your ex can see what he is missing!

I am all for holding eachother accountable. I am going to need it this weekend - with the birthday alcohol consumption coming my way. My friends have no mercy when we are at a bar, and I am going to have to be pretty stubborn to make them see things my way.

That being said, I will try not to disappoint you. I am up for a game! We could try some good old fashioned "hit me where it hurts" motivation and have to put a quarter in the jar each time we slip up - and the person with the best track record at the end wins the loot? I am up for ideas and suggestions.

heh Kitty,
I'm glad your bad "for serious"( I used to use that term after like everything I like said in the 6th like grade) :P. Yeah I've been a lazy douche lately, so I'm with ya...
I wonder if there is anyway we can make each other accountable, a game or something. I wont lie if I have to commit, but if no one asks...heh
I used the ex as amo for awhile when I started, it works...and I love love love how stupid it makes him feel now that we broke I lost weight and he is with a chick that is bigger than me *winks* karma is an asskicker...
WELCOME BACK

ok. so i've been gone for ages, but i'm back now. the break up turned into more of just a break & i think the space will be good over all. i also gathered brand new inspiration. i found a picture of an ex's crazy ex after she busted her ass at the gym & now she looks amazing. if this chunky, sad, unstable miss can pull herself together & seriously commit to being healthy then i have no excuses left.

i'm still at the 15 pound loss, but for not really trying i at least haven't gained anything back. i've been really good about taking my vitamins everyday. i've also begun taking fiber & i'm back to counting points as well. the past couple of days i've been getting myself up & on the treadmill & despite feeling a bit sick it feels really great to work out again. i think in fact i may go throw on mag rack & do some pilates before work.

alright so i started this journey at 205 lbs. [the heaviest i've ever been!] & now i'm at 190. first fifteen i'm sure was the easiest as i did it all with just diet. now i'm throwing exercise into the mix for real. i'm not messing around anymore. i'm keeping up the activity despite being sick. once i feel better i'm stepping it up.

in summation: i'm back. for serious.

HELLO!!!!! :) Sorry I've been an asshat lately,,,I have been dealing with all of this crap from work, and basically eating my way through it I guess. I have not been doing anything I was supposed to so I kinda feel guilty about posting...BUT......I just took my draggin ass to the park and rode my bike for 40 mins, which doesn't sound like a lot but i swear it is 4 upward hills to 1 if that is even possible. I gained 5 lbs and lost 2 but I think that was the water pills, but I'm still claiming it..

My clothes were fitting tight, I was starting to look like a half cracked can of biscuits in my jeans so I guess I'd better get back on track because I threw away all of my fat clothes so I would have nothing to grow back into...smart ey? :P

Jenn,
Missed ya, missed ya, missed ya.....
So how did you come out of that whole festival thing? Make any moola mama? One would hope so after all of the pain in you little ass...*snickers*
So how was Ragweed (if I were 10 years younger I would be getting arrested for a comment like that)...
The smoking thing make me hiss and give my puter the cross made out of fingers...I do a lot on the puter (school and what not) and didn't realize I'm usually smoking when on it. So I had to take a mini break because it was like I had tourettes cussing and twitching when I sat down..But alas I started puffin again, I need to do one thing at a time..It sucks to admit defeat but I can't lose weight and quit...I end up shoving everything I can get in my mouth when I'm not smoking..So I work on the weight, then the smoking...

Drue,
Glad ya came back. I'm usually more active but I have been hiding out :). So yeah the work thing..I have been trying to not let it get to me (but it does), and I don't really know what is going on because of the "confidentiality" thing they can't even tell me what they said when confronted, if they gave them a final written notice, or what happened...I have no clue..
One of the girls has been coming and going like nothing, crying and leaving...The other hasn't been there until yesterday when she came so messed up to work so couldn't talk and her eyes were rolling around, that was Zanex I think..But we have this thing called E-time where you can sign up to leave and if it is not busy they will call you and let you go home..she left about 1 hour after she got there so of course mgmt didn't see it..I left early on Monday, took vac day tues., thurs, and fri for my sanity. So hopefully by Monday it will all be over..who knows I just can't keep worrying myself sick about it....I mean I got physically ill, throwing up, migraines so bad I can't see, and neck and back problems from the tension in my body..Lets just say I'm not good at drama or confrontation..As an adult I try to not put myself in situations like that, with "people" like that, this one was unavoidable, but a truly valuable lesson learned..:)

Michelle - I worked retail management for years and we always had a "confidentiality" policy, and asked people to come to mgmt with concerns or breaches in policy. Well, it really is crap if it is obvious the information leak comes back to you. The company is only concerned with covering their own ass - so put them in the situation where they have to worry about the ramifications if they dont also protect you. It sucks, but you have to play their game. I would reccommend calling back HR, letting them know you are documenting the conversation and that you feel they are jeapordizing your safety in how they are handling things. Then they have to take that into account as well. Then if there is backlash you made them aware it could happen and, if they didnt do anything, they are once again liable. Beat them at their own "only looking out for myself" game.

Hey Michelle.

How are things working out in your "situation"? I would say something witty to cheer you up, or at least make you laugh, but I'm not sure if it woul be the right move. Let us know how things are going. Suspence is a deadly thing.

Okay - I am soooo feeling dumber than I am today.

Michelle - I responded to you, but on the Darker Side thread, so really, I responded to EvilMichelle666. I am sure she was wondering what in the hell I was talking about! What a day so far!

Anyhow - here is my response cut and pasted to the proper space;

Michelle - I know what you mean about Big Love - what a great, strange show. HBO has a way of making you look at the other side of things.....the Mob, Hollywood, The Wild West (Until Deadwood who knew they used the words F#@* and *&@#sucker so much back then!), and now Polygamy. I cant wait for Carnivale again, what an ending to last season.

My weekend of moving is over - it was brutal. My friend failed to mention that none of his SF friends would be assisting upon arrival, and that he was moving into a 3rd floor victorian walkup (Translation steps the size of saltines and steep with no interim landings).

I did go over my calories since we ate out all weekend (to the tune of 2100 calories each day)but I am pretty sure I burned off those extra calories on the 80 gazillion trips up those damn stairs. But what a great place, I am just not sure if I can make it up the stairs to visit my friend for a few weeks, it may trigger some sort of mental trauma.

Hope your Monday is going better than mine!

Drue

YIKES Michelle! I thought people saying (within earshot mind you) that I charge too much for my purses was a criminal offense. That is also a totally bogus claim. I guess all the bullsh+t drama is why I stay so skilfully unemployed. I got fired from my first job because I wouldn't play kiss ass with the new boss. Oh well. That was 9 years ago & I'm obviously still a tad bit on the bitter side.

We didn't get home from the Ragweed show until 2:45AM. They didn't even stop playing til 1:45. It was one of those shows I thought would never end. Of course I got front row. Even have the pictures to prove it. I went to bed at 3:30 & got up to be at the festival at 5:30. It's now 6PM & I've had 2 hours of sleep. I don't feel too bad considering. And being on my 2nd Bud Light makes it even better.

I made more in about an hour today than I did in 3 days last year. It's painfully obvious that I need to be doing this in a bigger market. I found out that the lead singer of I band that I know the drummer of (get all that?) is having a baby, so I can make a rockin little newborn bib & burp cloth set. I want to use the skull pattern I'm lining your bag in. Unfortunately I have to be back at the fest in the morning. God let it be over soon!

I need sleep!--Jennifer

Hey Drue...
Welcome welcome...
Yeah I don't think LA would be for me either, I have always wanted to live in San Francisco though. I really feel for ya having to take that U-Haul. U-Haul sucks, I work for the Cendant company which owns Budget Trucks, just think if ya would have messaged us last week I could have gotcha a swanky lil discount..

I used to watch Carnival when I was prego, but they quit coming on for awhile so I guess I lost interest. Big Love on HBO is almost as crazy so it fills in the spot well.

Jenn, and Girls
Well I only lasted a week on the not smoking thing. I have this really dramatic intense situation going on at work. Long story kinda short. I have a co-worker that steals, manipulates the schedule adherence, and does drugs (coke) at work. She used to be my friend (really only at work) but now I have been distancing myself from here. I have another friend who knows what she has been up to and took it to HR. HR then called me in asked me about all of the above and I was honest because the things she is doing up there are not fair to everyone else, the stealing that is. Anyway it was supposed to be completely "confidential".

I thought I was just confirming their suspicions, well it turns out that they are using the details I gave and relaying those directly to her. They say they are not going to use my name, but they don't have to with the situation they are going to mention. Anyway they keep calling me in (which looks suspicious ) they want to me write a statement, I said that I didn't want to be involved to that extent. She said she would drop the whole thing. Well that much is not true, she called me back in and wanted me to sign a statement they wrote up for me, I was like "well that is the same thing but only you all wrote it" I didn't sign that one either.

They said they will still use the info I gave even though it was told in confidence, I don't even know if that is legal. Now I feel sick and nervous all day everyday. I am so tense and off with this whole thing I can barely do my job. I obsess about it all day, and have to still look her in the face, I'm so paranoid about it I think they know.

To top it off these girls that are involved are very hostel. They have a friend that hates me who is very violent. She used to live in my complex and thinks I told on her backwards ass for having a dog, anyway she is ruthless and wanted to jump me with 6 of her lesbians man woman friends over the dog thing. So she is only a phone call away. They call her on every little problem they have, so it is a matter of time.

Not only that I am a horrible liar. When this confrontation comes, I am screwed. Oh did I mention they know exactly where I live...

Anyway while HR compiles their paper trail (at my expense) I am just waiting. It makes me want to quit my job, and I'm not even the one that should get fired. I am in over my head, and I was just trying to be honest and do the right thing. Sometimes the right thing is the wrong thing.

Hi All - just looking for a few good message boards with some interesting people and this one looked pretty good!

Hope you are all doing well this Friday and have some good weekend plans. I have the joy of helping a friend move this weekend from LA to San Francisco so a nice long drive in a U-Haul! At least hes moving back, missed him when he left and knew LA wasnt for him. Its worth the day trip for a good friend.

I, too, am curious what a Lionburger is - never heard of it. But, then, I dont really go to carnivals either - just watch an HBO show of that name - thats as close as I get.

On quitting smoking, I quit March 2005 after 17 years and it sucked! I went cold turkey and it was tough but I did it. I took to drinking water in the car for something to do and it helped - sure wish I had a drive commute now, I might get the 8 glasses a day I am supposed to.

Nice to meet you all - Drue

hey everyone. I hope everyone is well.

Michelle...I know what the smoking thing is like. I quit a year and a half ago. Its still hard, but its worth it.

I saved up my *treats* for the carnival and had a long awaited Lionburger with fried onions...french fries and a deepfried marsbar. It only comes once a year, so its my big treat. I didn't gain anything though. Which was SWEET.I tredmilled though, the day after....HARD. It was soooooooooooo gooooooood. I had the chicken wraps from McD's and they were actually good! I was starving at 11:00 at night, and the Subway was closed...but I'm actually glad I went. Now I know there is actually something good at the McD's.

Jenn,
LOL is your ass falling out or off.....let's hope off...Jim Brewer does a stand up routine where his wife goes into labor and her ass fell out....He said it looked like a potato and she was asking him if there was anything there, he lied and said there were no roids....lol gross I know but we are mostly all moms so you can't find the horrific humor in it ...
I'm worried about my weight but I'm not at the same time, I have so much sh*t going on it seems so tiny...I am just trying to get through this next month at school then I can play sane again...
Coffee beans are supposed to be negative calories btw...like you needed any added incentive...they burn more than they are...damn dontcha wish everything was like that, I need to invest in some chocolate covered wall bouncing.....

ID ...cute btw
Meh I did Chinese buffet for lunch so you can't feel that bad...but but but but I "am" going to hit up the mountain bike later and ride around my neighborhood...

It is colorful in the sense that it is a nice neighborhood, but we have a lot of through scruffy traffic, and it is funny to watch my BMW driving neighbors twitch when someone walks by on the way back from the grocery store...I live in a complex of town-homes which is 75% gay...Very hoshy poshy...kinda or rather they would like it to be...It's like a gay melrose place but only with drunken 2 am cat fights in the courtyard, and more emo haircuts than one can stand...anyway i'm done with my needless rant....I should be giving motivation on crunches or something....so um yeah do some of those...heh have a good one...

Michelle

Target funhouse mirrors... yep, that sums it up pretty well!
I guess I lied about being motivated at first because yesterday I did terrible! Oh well, today is another day and I'm feeling a bit like She-Rah. Rawr! ;)

Don't worry about the chicken. I haven't followed anything & I'm still losing. All of this stress is good for something after all. I've had to punch another whole in my favorite belt & my ass i sstill falling out. Trust me, it's chilly back there at the moment. I've been so hyped up lately any way. I haven't been able to find chocolate covered espresso beans anywhere but the mall. Saturday's car wash was at the fancy Wal-Mart (if there is such a thing). Bingo. Mama hit the jack pot! You don't think any thing of it until you realize you're biting the head off of any human you come in contact with. Briar ate 2 yesterday & she was bouncing off the walls. Not a smart move on my part. Then again I don't make too many of those on a good day.

All of Reagan's bags are packed & sitting on the couch. It's not like he's going away to college or a foreign country, it's just Orlando. I really don't want him to leave. Now I'm going to turn into the crazy crying mama. Where's my coffee beans?!?

I need to go get busy any way.

Hi ID
Glad ya made it...Talk about Target, they have fun mirrors in there..I went to get something for saint pattys day about 2 years ago..I caught myself bending over when I tied my shoes...OMG....I had no clue I was that big, I cried for the rest of the night, then I decided to lose weight..So I guess I should be thankful for Target fun house, and that I wasn't the bearded lady instead, ...weird anyway Welcome and hit me up on tha myspace....

Jenn,
Holy hell you are busy.....wow..remember to take pics...lots of them..
Well the smoking thing went great last week, then I cheated this week...I think that was a must though because I almost went postal on my financial aide dept. at school...argh I decided to take a 2 months leave of absence after this term so I can breathe (and sew)_heh....oooooooo yeah yesterday I had fried chicken tenders...nice

It's this coming weekend. I'm sitting here with the fabric in my lap to cut the final liner for today. It will be the 5th soft tote bag I've made today. I made a list today of the ones I want to get done. This way I can focus on one type each day. This storm is screwing me up as usual. I need to really work on the cigar boxes, but I can't paint in the rain. If I can get 3 done I'll be OK.

Reagan leaves tommorow morning to go on vacation with his friend. Now I'll be left with 2 fighting girls to deal with. Fun, fun! Tommorow is pin-up day. I will definitely get the pictures to you after I get them done. I made some burp cloths yesterday that turned out super cute. Oh crap! I feel like a cheerleader. Know anybody having a baby? I'd love to make one with the skull fabric. My baby is 6 & lost her 2nd tooth today. I guess she doesn't count.

Gotta get busy.

Jennifer

Hi guys, Hoorah for newbies!! *wink wink* I'm here to lose a bit (or maybe a lot) of ass to put it bluntly. I don't like the way it jiggles when I'm chasing my two-year-old through the local Target.
Seriously though, I don't have a problem with motivation to start out with, it's after a few days that I slip and ultimately forget that I had this plan to work out in the first place... That is until I have to go out and buy new clothes~ARGH!! So here I am, hoping to meet some lovely people that can help me get my butt in gear!
*Melanie*
