Welcome back Zoe! Glad you had a such a great trip. Good job on the zero gain. That's not easy to do on vacation.

SheRa - Eeks about the new boss. That stinks! Hopefully she will be better than you actually believe.

Hello to everyone else.

Sorry I have been MIA the past several days. I have been swamped around here with life. My oldest is back from camp and there were 2 full days of laundry and unpacking and cleaning all her gear. Ick! My husband is on the job hunt. He still has his job and will have it for as long as he wants but some things have been taking place in the company that he is very displeased about and doesn't want to stick around to manage the fall out. We'll have to figure out how to deal with his shares in the company since he is one of the top 3 share holders and a buy out in the works. Should be a real PITA to manage. But I completely support him on this decision. I just hope he's able to find something to move to before the year is out.

I went to see my Doc today. I needed my iron checked for my anemia. I've felt pretty rough lately and was sure that was the issue. And it is. Its actually lower than I anticipated so I get to have injections again once a week for the next 6 and then back on the pills. Good times!

The cool news is she was so shocked by my weight loss. She put me on her body composition machine to see what my fat content looks like. That was really cool. I weighed in at 144 lbs! For my age and height my "Desirable Ranges" are:
Fat% - 21-33%
Fat Mass - 27.0 - 50.0 lbs
My actualy numbers are:
Fat% - 29.5%
Fat Mass - 42.5 lbs
So I am in the right place. That was very cool to me. She asked me what my goal was and I told her 140. She said based on my # I could actually lose an additional 10-15 lbs beyond the 140 reasonably. So I told her that I would get to 140 and worry about the maintenance work at that weight. We both suspect that with my HM training I will reasonably lose another 5-10 without much effort as long as I keep my food intake appropriate.

Alright, off to run the oldest to volleyball camp. I'm not so fond of playing chauffer.

Hi Everyone! I'm having internet issues today. My computer is working at a snails pace so I'll probably just sign off for today. Just wanted to say "hey" and hope everyone is doing well. I got more stress added to the mix today when my boss' boss announced her retirement. She's being replaced by someone I know and the woman scares me to death. That's saying something cuz I'm not afraid of anyone generally, but this woman can look right through you. Eeek!!! Should be fun times ahead! Woo hoo!

Hi Tracy, TL and She-Ra! Thanks for the welcome back and glad to see you on here - I hope you're all still sparking!

But seriously - where is everyone? I am never the one to get on here first - where is Mitchell?

I am definitely having an adjustment getting home and continued eating what I wanted yesterday just like I was still on vacation. Got to ease back into the good habits I started on SP. Going to at least try to track food today. Going to clean my neglected house today so that should take care of exercise lol.
