Okay all you guys, I'll take the snow at my house and hope it bypasses all of you that don't want it. I haven't had it here since Dec. 1998. It's very much a rarity this far south, but I can always hope. And if it's gotta be so weirded out cold here, I want the white stuff to go along with it! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEE

Nooooooo snow please! It is so cold and the wind is just howling here in North Alabama (Decatur). And to think just a couple of weeks ago, it was sunny and warm and I bought some bulbs for my flower bed. ACK! Too cold for that now.

On the up side, I exercised this morning like the good girl that I am (polishing halo) and I am saying it here, I am committing to eating right today. So, no matter what tomorrow might bring, for today, I'm gonna be a good girl. emoticon LOL!!

My husband made the not so funny remark this morning about how he missed the snow and maybe we should move back up north. He got "the look" from me. No more moving! Well I guess we still have one more when our landlords sell this house. emoticon

Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by moments that take our breath away.

Not sure who wrote this but thought it beautiful.

Of course we all have moments like that but the joy is overcoming those moments. You've wallowed in your self pity now it's time to refocus. You definitely don't want to say the heck with all this and eat what you want, when you want because that would definitely take you where you do not want to go. Instead of having the guilt for not eating enough veggies, exercise or having enough water you can get past that by simply eating more veggies, exercising more and drinking more water. I know it's easier said than done but the victory is yours, just claim it! Besides you're my cheerleader, I need you. =-)

This is my pms week, we all know what that means, lots of comfort food. I'm also having a poor me kinda week, scales didn't budge (should be a good thing in the cup is half full point of view) but with the emotions running wild it is poor, poor, me. does anyone else have moments like that? when you just want to say the heck with all this and eat what you want, when you want, without the guilt that goes with it? oh yeah i have guilt, guilt i don't eat enough veggies, guilt i didn't get in exercise like i should, and guilt i only had time for 6 cups of water when my goal was 8. Remember the "stop the madness craze"? i'm there.

Ah, the weather! It is so cold. Yesterday I was at a friend's house for the superbowl and her house was freezing. I had the heat blasting in the car all the way home...I finally got warm when I was at my street! I hate it!

Mondays are hard and I'm retired so all days should be the same! I couldn't get moving this morning and skipped the Y. Bad me! I'll go this afternoon although I missed my favorite Zumba class.

I'm with you LLK, I wish it was Friday again. I usually have to be at work at 10:00 A.M., but the little Poodle that owns me has to have her teeth cleaned at 8:00 in the morning. Blech!

I had the game on but really didn't watch it too much.

Hope everyone has an awesome week! as for me, rain here tomorrow and the next day. I am sick of winter!

Happy Sunday evening, all (ugggh... can it be Friday already, please? :) )

I've never heard of Zumba, but it sounds like many of you are into it! I'll have to check it out.

Back to water and sugar-free pudding for a snack today. I usually don't like sugar-free stuff, but Jello's sugar-free chocolate and vanilla swirls are pretty good. 60 calories a cup! Not bad.

I just finished playing WiiFit. I do the exercises to build strength in my rather weak legs, especially my thighs. Lunges-- eek! My legs are as limp as noodles now, ha ha! Hope it's worth it in the end and they look a bit more toned.

2 pounds is great, girl. You didn't put it on that fast and it is healthier to take it off slowly.
Zumba is great. I've never done a live class, but we do the DVD's at our church and it is fun! I'm 53 years old and I am keeping up now. For the first month it was a hoot! two left feet; headed the wrong direction; etc.
Enjoy your day!

Hey, everyone. Just got back from Roanoke. We're moving there in May. I'm assuming a business up there. To comment on all the posts:

The last time I weighed under 125 was decades ago. Enjoy the mac&cheese.

I'm sick, sick, sick of the cold, rainy weather. It's hard on our horses, hard on our dogs, and makes me grumpy. That's hard on DH.

2 lbs in a week is wonderful. Wish I could say the same.

I like having a daily chat thread. Makes it easier to figure out where to go brag, gripe, or visit.

I enjoyed the posts. Back later.

The difference between truth and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jer. 29:11 (NIV)

Hi from the Shoals!
This is probably just a drive-by post but I just wanted to say wassup to the home girls!
I would love to try Zumba some time. It looks like an absolute blast. My husband and I just started a waltz class and that's much more of a workout than I ever imagined.

Hey Yarncat...2# is great. You really shouldn't lose more than 1 or 2 a week so you're right on target!

ZUMBA! ZUMBA! ZUMBA! I love it. I'm 65 and do it at least once a week and sometimes two when there is a class available. It used to kill me, but I get along pretty well now.

I hope you're doing okay, Darlene. Good luck to you.

I don't like fat free but the light ranch is good. I can't really tell the difference. Also hummus is good. YOu can get it in several flavors.
I give myself a day off every so often to eat what I want. I don't go crazy but I think you need a break every now and then.
For those of you trying to get good workouts try the firm believers group. If you have never tried the firm it's a great workout.
I have been frustrated today by a letter from the lawyers for SAMC threatening me over 50.00 the medical center never even billed me for. This is not the first time by far that SAMC has messed up a bill. I tend to eat when frustrated so it hasn't been a good day for me!

Lois I am not one for cooked veggies, they stink to me. so I eat raw and dip them in ranch dressing. really good. and since I don't like fat free dressing, I mix one part water to two parts dressing so that cuts everything by a third!

My daughter thinks that if she eats abc soup once a week that is her veggies LOL!

Hee! I know what you mean... indulging can be a ball that is hard to stop once it starts rolling! A lot of my motivation isn't necessarily trying to lose weight (though I have gained 10 pounds since my wedding in August 2008, and I think that's a bit much for that period of time, so I'm trying to get back down) but trying to eat healthier.

I'm tired a lot, have frequent headaches, and suffer from anxiety on top of it. I'm a picky eater and unfortunately I tend to only enjoy the bad stuff like mac and cheese, pizza, and burgers. I know it will all catch up with me in more ways than one! I'm good about moderate exercise and portion control, but these eating habits have got to change, I know. I'm trying to build up a tolerance for veggies, most of which I absolutely loathe.

You'd think I was 8 years old, judging by my taste buds! lol :)

Good for you for quitting smoking (as stated in your signature), Mary1313! I know that must have been hard. I know that willpower will help you out in your weight loss goals, as well! Very inspirational.

Well Loislanekent, if I weighed as little as you do, I would treat myself to some mac and cheese too LOL. No really, I do treat myself about once a month but I don't go overboard with it because it is so hard to reverse.

D-Ann I have my fingers and toes crossed. I know you have arthritis so it's probably really hard to do certain exercises and some days, any exercises. Pulling for you girl.

Well peeps, I did not get any good news at the drs.
last week...so ya'll keep your fingers crossed for
me, that I can get on the stick here and begin to
exercise more in conjunction with eating right.
This is really getting me down.

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

will try again tomorrow!"

Hi, gang! It's chilly down here in Mobile, too! I like cold weather (I've always lived in Mobile, so I haven't experience much of it), but I tend to be tired of it after the holidays end. I'm about ready for spring now. :)

Well, I have a confession. Today is not going to be so good for caloric intake (she says as she eats a spoonful of mac and cheese). But I let myself slide a bit on Friday or Saturday, so I'll be back on track tomorrow. To me, this works better than depriving myself-- my aunt tries to eat celery and boiled chicken everyday and then goes nuts on a binge and loses all her hard work.

What do you all think? Do you give yourself days to not count the calories so religiously (but not go completely nuts with it, of course)?

I have always wanted to do a zumba class, but I was wondering if I was too old for that. (54), but probably not!

Hey, Deb, I see you are in Birmingham (that's one of your clubs anyway) I am actually from Fultondale, right outside of Birmingham. Moved to Decatur to get married, and well, now that all of that is over, I'm still in Decatur!

Not the first but wanted to tell everyone I went to Zumba class! Wow It was a killer! lol Girlfriend and me were the oldest there and we thought it was our last day on earth. Good work-out but will go slower next time to my own speed. I just aint that young anymore and need to remind myself I am not! emoticon

The wind is not howling, but it is definitely blowing cold. I thought this was the Deep South. Brrrrrrrr!

JB I am huddled in my apartment with my little Poodle like we live in Alaska or something. These howling winds and cold temporatures are not for Alabama! Thanks for the flowers!!!
