My family is visiting so we are going to the zoo in the morning bright and early; I won't have time to say hi here.

Tracy, you hang in there; each day has it's own possibilities. (((hugs)))

Merry Christmas!

Welcome to the thread Jenoli and Jenni (I hope I spelled those right!)

I'm on that downward spiral after only 3 weeks. I know it's the meds. :( I feel so insanely bloaty, I'm afraid to step on the scale. Because honestly, I feel bigger, and if I see that I weigh more, I just might cry. And I hate crying. I cut myself back to just 1 pill a day, though she wants me on two. I just don't like how horrible they make my stomach feel. I don't see her until August, so I'll give them until then. What's so sad is people take this drug to LOSE weight. I can see how it can be done, however, why doesn't it work on me? Anyways, that's enough of my pity party!

Ginger- you count that moving! It's not normal cleaning and it's as heavy as most 7 year old.

Shelly- that's awesome that your daughter has an interview with the modeling agency. I would be terrified to let my daughter do that stuff! And congrats on the pre-pregnancy clothes!

Cecelia- I couldn't imagine watching others children. Though I have one and I love him dearly, I have no tolerance for others kids. (horrible of it isn't it?)

Mitchell- enjoy your boyfriends house. My boyfriend will gain weight, but not much and only in the winter. :( He's one of those shorter but naturally muscular types (RAWR! ;) )and he can and normally eats everything including the kitchen sink. (boo!)

Mom6- Congrats on gaining the new family member. :) It's an exciting time, preparing for a wedding!

Rachel- I hope you get to feeling better soon!

It's too late tonight to say I'm back on the bandwagon. However, tomorrow is a new day and I'm not going to be spiraling downward, I'll be working my way back up!

Tricky Tracy

I started typing this at 6 am this morning. Its taken me awhile. lol

Cecelia - Oh I feel for you with the babysitting of ill-behaved children. Its hard. It is a good excuse when they are gone to take your frustration out on a good hard workout.

Ginger - Yeah for getting all the equipment set up. Definitely track that moving as part of your workout. Holy cow! I love your attitude!

Mom6 - That’s exciting about your son getting married. Do you approve of his wife to be? That is my worry as my kids get older. I sure hope I like who they pick, it would make everyone’s life easier.

Welcome Jennie!

Busy day yesterday. I went bra shopping. That was fun. I went from a 42EEE to a 36DD, my pre-pregnancy size. YEAH!!!! I picked the outfit I am keeping. I so want to keep the other one but I honestly can’t justify it. Today has been all about running with the kids. Volleyball, library, Grandma’s, grocery store, and now no one wants to take a nap but me.

My husband got word that one of the guys in his office is leaving and that means so much extra work for him. More travel, more late nights working from home. ICK! Oh well, its job security. Hard to argue with that. He’s worried that he won’t have time to keep running like he is. I told him he just needs to make it a priority. Plus I will ride his butt if he slacks. :-)

We got a call yesterday afternoon from Wilhelmina regarding my oldest daughter. Turns out a teacher of hers from last year has a contact at the agency. They are opening a new office here in Denver in a couple of weeks. Anyway, they want to meet my daughter the 2nd week of July. This may be the “in” she has been wanting. She is so excited that she may get this opportunity. I’m trying my best to keep her grounded, that this is just an interview and not a sure thing. Try getting that through to a 13 year old. lol Not sure how I feel about it honestly but I’m open to check out just about anything.

Be good to you!

Hey everyone! I am having a good day. My DH and I went to Trader Joe's and bought some things. Poked fun at some of the weird ones. LOL It was a good time though. We don't usually get to have fun together like that. We are normally tired and grumpy. I think this thing they call "exercise" might actually be good for me.

I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already. Or maybe I am more amazed that it's been 3 weeks and I have lost a couple of pounds even when I do slip up!

Can I just say that if it wasn't for all you amazing people, I probably would have dropped off the radar!

Welcome Jennie! You came to the right group. Each day there will be a new thread but it's mostly the same people each day although the entire team is welcome to join in.

I'm Zoe and I'm in Phoenix, AZ.

I received the email about staying active on the board. It has been rainy here these past few days and I was in a blah mood and did not do much of anything.

I went over my calorie range these past few days because of the lack of exercise - hoping to get back into it today though.

Ok, so I have never posted to this forum. But thought I would join in. I have been trying to post at another group but I am not getting much feedback. I joined sparkpeople so I could find some buddies!

Here's to another day! I'm going to try to stay home today and be productive. Well, it's easy to stay home when you're babysitting other people's kids. It's a real test of patience. These 2 kids are not the best behaved (I'm trying to say it nicely)!

Hope everyone's still tracking along!

For sure moving all that equipment was exercise! Normally I wouldn't count cleaning toward my daily totals but I helped carry the "base" of the weight machine up 25 stairs so, I would say that's 25 reps of at least 50 lbs for my biceps. LOL

HAHAHA - is that cheating? I know tmw am is gonna be super busy and I didn't want anyone to miss comments.
Thanks so much for staying together even tho life itself sometimes makes it difficult! I love reading your posts/comments and try to read everyday even if I don't get time to respond. So here goes...

Ginger - I know what you mean about summer being less crowded. We live in a college town and it's dead when the 20,000+ students go home for the summer. It bad for businesses tho:( YAY for getting the treadmill up and rdy to use:)

Shelly - Galena is a beautiful town! Good job on buying the resistance ball. I'm anxious to see the pics too. My son is getting married in Sept. and I just picked out my dress at Nordstroms. It's hard to find something that isn't PROM girl or something my grandmother would wear!

Tracy - hope you are hangin in there. I'm so sorry that the meds are causing you problems. I have to do prednisone every now and then for allergy related stuff and on it, I can gain 10lbs in seven days. I hate it, but it's the only thing that works when my immune system overreacts:( I hope that today is better for you.

Mitchell - goodluck at your boyfriend's house! My husband can eat chocolate and chips at 10pm every nite and LOSE weight...grrrrr. Congrats on the 2 lbs! We are getting there slow but steady!!

Cecelia - so sorry about your friends...nothing to say but that SUX! I'm glad you are taking it a day at a time. It will be alright eventually...you can complain to us:)

Rachel - Hope you are feeling better!! When our bodies don't work the way they're supposed to...our mental suffers too:( Thanks for posting and keeping us up-to-date!

Zoe - glad to see you are walking...hope your to-do list is getting done - I need more hrs. in the day, lol.

Have a good one, all! I'll be back Wed. evening to read! Thinking of you all!!!
