I was looking around at recipes this morning and found this little note that I thought you'd all enjoy.

Women are Angels
And when someone breaks our wings, our spirit, or our hearts...
We simply continue to fly.........
on a broomstick...
We are flexible like that ....

WELL - I was LOCKED out of the group frown but WESSECG saved the day for me and told me about that little button at the bottom of the feed. WHO KNEW that we could only put 500 messages on a train!!! Don't they know we are women and we need to get all of our words in EVERY DAYnoway

So between my travel/work schedule and a bridal tea for a friend's daughter I missed getting on for a few days. BUT I managed to keep my eating under control - in spite of the delicious food at the tea! How's a girl to pass up a homemade cinnamon pecan scone AND red velvet brownies AND turkey cranberry sandwiches. Well I didn't but I did demonstrate great control and I exercised too!!!!! WHEW - I guess i have come a long way when an event like the tea no longer throws me into an eating frenzyflowerforyou

Saw some newbies joined us while I was "away". Hang in there ladies - it is WELL WORTH THE EFFORT!!! It is even amazing how much you can eat with reduced calories when you choose wiselyglasses

Hubby heading out to drive a medical van/RV to the area in NY/NJ affected by "Sandy" so our paths will not cross until Monday. I so hate it when that happens but this is a great cause and he is looking forward to the adventure and helping in this way. Praying he has good weather and safe travels and he has eyes to see needs that he might can meet along the way.

Well better go get some work done.

WHO DAT Lizzie
November 15, 2012 12:59 PM

My dad was crying again today on the phone. He is convinced that he has cancer and will not be optimistic about anything. It makes me pull my hair out sometimes.

The next thing I'm about to say is really and truly horrible and I can't believe I'm going to type it - but I need to put it out there.... Last night we were driving back from visiting my father and making arrangements to visit MIL in the nursing home after work today and my DH came out with something that shocked me. He said "Our life will be so much easier when your dad and my mum are no longer around". I was shocked, yes - but the truth is, I understood what he meant and, just for a fleeting moment agreed with him - in an unspoken way.

Now I just feel guilty for those thoughts of course.

Love to you all - from a nasty-thought-Amanda x

Amanda, when my mom was ill and cranky and calling 911 for emergency medical treatment every time she had heartburn, a friend of mine said, "you know, she could go on like this for 20 years".......that thought made me crazy........that's when I realized that I had to take it one day at a time.....I understand completely the feelings that your DH expressed and it's so natural.....most people don't share it with others so we all feel bad and guilty for feeling that way......I think you are kind, loving and heroic.

A sentimental variation of this that very much fits this group: we are all angels, but we only have one wing: we need each other to fly.

I have had another great day and stayed on plan,how many is it now? 3 or 4 I think it's four days. I am not much of a cook but I have been trying some new things and am very happy with the outcome.

Nancy - congratulations on that impressive loss of 61 pounds. That is amazing, are you still using the Atkins diet? We'd love to have you hang out here. I am pretty new too but I feel like I know these ladies already. Welcome.

Lila - I am working my program and today I have not been hungry at all and have had not cravings for sweets. HURRAY. I had to eat a piece of rye toast this evening that I didn't really want because my calorie count is too low. I was also short on carbs so thought a slice of rye toast would be okay. I took the Ginger Roasted Carrot Bisque and added some left over squash from last night and it was delicious.

DeeDee - yes, that's what I am aiming for "second nature" My mom bought some ice cream cones and cookies today but I didn't even look at them. What amazes me is that it wasn't difficult (at least for today). Thanks for your reminder to "drink the water"

M - Thanks for the encouragement. I'm looking for that time when I can say that I always eat like that. I want to make it my lifestyle and quit stressing about my weight and size and just "live".

Exermom - your day sounds just wild, makes me give thanks for my "much quieter" days. That's wonderful that you have no desire for the sweets. I'm going to get there too some day.

Janehadji - Thanks so much for your encouragement. I did, I did, I now have 4 days ( I think it's 4 anyway) guess I'll have to check. The days go so fast I can't keep up.

Lizziesmile Good for you keeping your eating under control in spite of the delicious goodies!!!

I had a wonderful time with my friend yesterday, our lunch went from 12:30 to 3:30pm, and we had just scratched the was so nice getting caught up on everything, and it`s the first time she`s seen me since I started losing weight (she remembers me when I was a size 6), she can`t believe I still had a little over 40 pounds to gobigsmile . I ran home after that, fed the dog and took her out for a walk, changed clothes and then met another friend for dinner, I had 6 calories left over last night! I was very surprised and happy when I weighed this morning and the scale was down 2.3 lbs!!!!! Let`s hope it stays off!!!

My comfy bed is calling my name, I hear it from the other side of the house, I`m not so exhausted tonight so maybe I can get a few pages of my book read! Hope you all have a wonderful night!!! Sleep well and sweet dreams!!! Until tomorrow....

Hello ~ My first food diary today and I clicked on this link and saw all the weight lost and got pretty excited !! Seriously hope that I am able to do as well as all of you are doing !! Congratulations so working hard and sticking with it, it's never an easy thing to change habits. Take Care, Andrea
November 15, 2012 7:57 PM
Hi todayandevery - you're in the right place.

Thanks for crossing stuff for me - I didn't have the lowest calorie consumption this week but I did have the most exercise. Hopefully tomorrow I will see 162.4. I did walk at lunch today and shredded, and ate my salmon.

Good night everyone.
November 15, 2012 8:24 PM
Good Evening,

Can't believe it's going to be Friday already! Time seems to be flying! Tomorrow is the last day at my temp job but I feel a lot worse for the great women I met at MDA while working there, because they are losing their permanent jobs since the site is closing. Non-profits are seeing a great deal of funding cuts these days unfortunately. Looking forward to having a little time off to catch up with things and hopefully on to another job. I am very proud of myself that after work I am getting in a walk with my boys! I'm up to a half hour now before my foot and leg start flaring up!smile I would have never been able to make all this progress without the support I've gotten here!flowerforyou

Take care,

November 15, 2012 8:36 PM
Congratulations on 29 lbs lost, that's so great !! I need to get back to a nightly walk with the dog definitely ... she has lots of fur so she will be fine while I can't seem to warm up lately ! Keep up the good work ! Hope you get a great new job you really like !
November 15, 2012 8:38 PM
flowerforyou I went for my mammogram today and when I was seated with the woman at the desk giving my information and signing papers I got to thinking about all of you who work at desks or computers and don’t have time many opportunities during your work day for exercise…….then I noticed that the woman I was talking to got up from her chair and walked to the printer to get each piece of paper while the woman seated to her left rolled over to the printer in her chair…there are ways to get a bit more exercise even at a sedentary job.

bigsmile They are so nice at the mammogram place…I’ll get results in the mail next week….they are usually fast with them.

Good evening lovely ladies--

I've been MIA for a while. I've been logging, reading and keeping up with my friends but every time I get ready to post my mind goes blank.blushing

I've been out of sorts lately and I'm not sure why. Even as I sit here now I'm not sure what to post. ohwell

I had an extremely bad food day yesterday. We had a Thanksgiving luncheon at work yesterday and I overindulged. THANKSGIVING #1. Scale was up this morning (but not weigh day) so it doesn't count. laugh laugh I did better today. Have not been getting any exercise in. That might have something to do with my mood.

We've been really busy. We're already starting to get ready for the holidays. My entire family is coming for Christmas and we (mostly DH) are painting. DH is just finishing painting two walls in the living room.

We have a huge Sunday School campaign going which ends with Family Day this Sunday. Sunday School and service followed by Thanksgiving dinner and a concert. I'm making one of 50 turkeys plus dressing. It is one of the highlights of our year. THANKSGIVING #2.

Next week I will be cooking for DH, DD,DSIL and a friend. THANKGSGIVING #3. Of course there are favorite recipes that everyone will expect so I will make them and try not to eat too much.

Is anyone who has lost a lot having problems with being cold now? I just seem to be cold most of the time. The only change is the weight loss.

I can't remember everyone's posts but congratulations on new jobs, weights losses, NSV's and exercise done.

I haven't done as well with drinking water as I did when it was warmer but remember to drinker drinker drinker drinker drinker

Have a great Friday and weekend if I don't get back to you.

Oh my Ladies! It has been a painfully long dayhuh .

The lady in the office today was a chatty Kathyexplode angry and I ended up making a total mess of my reportsmad mad . Thank goodness I noticed my mistakes before I turned it in. I ended up staying 2 hours over to correct everthinggrumble grumble .

That of course made dinner lateangry . I just got back from the gym, WHEWohwell !! I will be glad to get out of the office for a few days,even if it is to get ready for 20+ guests for Thanksgiving dinnernoway laugh .

I am stuck on a plateau and haven't lost a pound this monthgrumble angry . I haven't gained any, so I suppose I have something to be thankful forohwell huh . But that also means I won' t be making my goal for my Novermber 24thgrumble noway ! Oh, well. It will be good when it does happenbigsmile .

My boss bought tickets for my family and myself to go see her daughter's high school drama club dinner theater tomorrow nighttongue . My husband is thrilled....nottongue wink laugh laugh . He hates musicals and high school playsnoway . They are doing Guys and Dolls. I don't imagine there will be much on the menu that fits in with my new lifestyle, but I will eat before I go so I won't be hungry and make a mistake. Her daughter is a very sweet young ladyheart heart .

Hello everyone,
Like Kathy, I can’t believe it’s Friday already (well tomorrow anyway). The other day I watched Dr Oz, must have been Monday because it’s a daytime show and I’m never home in the daytime unless it’s a weekend or statutory holiday. Anyway, he had a 3-day cleanse that he designed and I decided to try it. I used to do a cleanse every spring but the last couple of years I’ve not been able to complete it as I felt so bad on it. But lately I’ve been feeling very bloaty and uncomfortable and like my system is too slow. So I printed out the recipes (it’s a full organic cleanse) and did the fruit and veg shopping and I started it this morning. I did feel a little uncomfortable this afternoon and have no idea how one drinks 4 of these various smoothies a day, 3 was way more than I wanted and I feel a little too full. However, they taste pretty good so drinking them is not a problem (except for the volume). I am feeling very tired though so am going to bed right after this post. I entered the recipes on MFP and the breakfast, lunch and dinner total to 1275 cals – over on carbs, under on protein, dead on the fat quotient, high on fiber (of course). I still have half the lunch drink in the fridge for tomorrow, just couldn’t get it all down.

Kathy – sorry about the job ending but glad your walks are getting less painful.

Andrea – welcome and how great you found this quote right away. It really is a great group of ladies.

DeeDee – great loss!!!!! What book are you reading (along with the other 3 waiting)?

Liz – I hope your Thursday was better than yesterday, keep the chin up, you’re a strong and caring woman. Hugs.

Amanda – don’t be so hard on yourself, we are all human and have moments like that. We know you really care so don’t beat yourself up about an aberrant thought.

Carolyn – kettlebells look dangerous to me (I’m a total klutz and would probably break my own leg with one).

Lin and Linda – I’ve had that happen frequently; I just go back and complete the day again until it shows up. MFP has been kind of odd to me lately, screens freezing and booting me out (haven’t lost a post yet though - saying that probably jinxed me).

JB – I love the dogs in hats – just precious! To add to the Rosemary thread – I love using the blue flowers in salads in the summer. They have a taste between Rosemary and Lavender to me. Your little found note made me laugh. At the moment it’s the only way I feel flexible.

WhoDatLizzie – blessings on your husband for his caring and helping nature. Sounds like you are staying on track even when faced with obstacles such as yummy teas.

Rose – looks like you are doing really well, try out the website. The recipes make everyone a good cook – I just saw a roasted pumpkin sage soup that I’m going to try out.

Micki – I don’t know how I would do with 3 Thanksgivings facing me.

Jolene – oh, your day sounded so busy. When do you get to see the Guys and Dolls musical? I can’t remember the last time I went to a high school musical – must be 10 or 12 years ago, DD1 used to do the choreography for them and DD2 the costumes. I kind of miss those days.

Good night ladies, off to bed to read again, didn’t quite finish it last night so have about 2 chapters left. Sleep well and have a great Friday.

flowerforyou since I lost weight I've been extra cold-----so I wear wool socks, thermal underwear, turtlenecks and sweatshirts or sweaters and have an extra blanket on my bed.....when I go out I wear a knitted wool hat and scarf and a wool coat bigsmile bigsmile

I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you lovely ladies for your support and understanding. It really means a lot to have somewhere to come and be open without judgement.

Last night my dad called an ambulance and was carted off to A&E again. Why? Because he couldn't reach me on the phone (I was on my way home from work and there is no reception on the underground). He said he thought he was having a heart attack. When I got to the hospital the doctor had already done a barrage of tests and basically told my dad that his heart was as sound as a bell. I'm not sure if it put my dad at ease or not. Now he's just convinced that he has cancer. I'm going with him next week when he has his scan on his tummy. Fingers crossed.

Must work.

Love to all.

TGIF Lovely Ladies!!!

Woke up with my back hurting a bit and not sure if it is age or exercise related...Have not tried the kettlebells yet so can't blame that. I want to try them this weekend after I thoroughly review and practice proper technique... More to come on that!!

Wonder if I will have wings or a broomstick today??? LOL

Rose- WTG for sticking to the plan...It does take time for the new routine to set in....

Andrea- Welcome to a great bunch of awesome ladies full of lots of encouragement and support!

DeeDee- Yay for your loss!! I am doing the happy dance for you! Glad you were able to spend quality time with your friends.

Kathy- Great attitude about your last day at work... Hopefully the transition will be smooth for you...

Barbie- Glad your mammogram is done. Good luck on the results. As always thanks for your words of wisdom. I consider my job somewhat sedentary. I started using a basic pedometer and the staff is beginning a 10,000 step challenge at work!!

Micki- Three Thanksgivings!!! Wow-ser! Good luck making it light. Sorry you have been out of sorts... Hope you start to find the sunshine again!!!

Jolene- Chatty Kathy needs to let you get your work done. Some people sometimes don't take our hints very well.... I am also on a plateau so I know how you feel. Hang in there and it will end soon. Enjoy Guys and Dolls. My DH would only go if DD # 1 was in the show. Otherwise I would go by myself!

Lila- Good luck on the cleanse. Let me know how it works and how you like it. Is the plan posted on his website?

Amanda- Hope your Dad finds some peace and security soon. Sounds like he may be scared... Hope you can identify his issues and move forward. Thinking of you....

jb- Can't wait to hear your Friday words!!

Tigress and Meg- Hope you guys feel better soon!

Michele- You are a saint to watch those kitties!!! Can't wait to hear about your tales!!!! (Should it be tails??)

To other ladies- I am choosing wings today.... Hope you do too!!!

Take care,
November 16, 2012 6:21 AM
Yay! I made the 30 mark!happy Really motivated now to keep going! I do have another 30 to get to where I was 11 yrs ago and then probably a little more to truly be at a good weight! I just break it down into small goals and realize how much healthier I'm getting! Just wish the rest of the family would get on board but at least they do eat most of my healthy meals! My hand has been kind of numb and tingly last night and this morning, thinking of getting it checked out after my last day of work today. Have a great one all!

November 16, 2012 6:49 AM
Hi ho, Friday, fabulous fun day. What else is Friday? Fantastic. happy

Today I take a routine break from my routine - every Friday J'boy and I go to the Tim Horton's drive through for breakfast (though they stopped carrying the egg salad sandwich I used to get, so now I have to find another high nutrition-low(ish) calorie option on their menu. No donut holes!

Multi-age groups at school. Today we are studying the principles of levers by building tiny catapults out of craft sticks. We will then attack the castle with cotton balls. Last time I did this project I brought in mini-marshmallows for ammunition - that proved a bit dangerous. The marshmallows hurt a bit when they are propelled with force, and they are too tempting for some students to resist eating. Cotton balls seem a safer (and healthier) option.

I am going to assign two students in each group to record the action using iPads and prepare a presentation for the principal (just in case she wonders why I am teaching them how to made medieval weapons!)

Oh yes, it's going to be fun.

J'boy is ready and I must be off,

Hasta pronto,

November 16, 2012 7:31 AM
Hi to my lovely friends. Don't know what's going on around here but it's been CRAZY busy. I am on round two of antibiotics and actually feel quite good except for the nausea/belching from these new meds. BLEH. How charming. LOL. Can't stay today, but please make today count! i'll be back tomorrow and I swear I'm taking control of my life! Take care, Meg

It's a Festive Friday Full of Fiesty Feminine Friends Frugally Feasting on Fat-Free Foods!! laugh

Which of course means I'll allow myself a second glass of wine tonight lol. bigsmile I've done so well this week with just having 5 oz when I get home from work. It's such a habit. But I knew I could cut back, and I did, and I'm glad! drinker

M-F report: Down 1.5 lbs this week. I didn't change my ticker so will need to lose 3 more to get back to 69. 4 more and I'll be shouting Yippeeeeee 70! 70!! SEVENTY POUNDS JB!! noway Sorry, just had a moment there. blushing

A few interesting things have happened this week. I'll have to write details later since I have to work earlier than usual today so must get the dogs out and get my exercise pronto.

Amanda, I sure do feel for you. flowerforyou It's just so difficult. My mom has been ok this week, thank goodness.

Congrats to all of the losers this week! drinker I'm telling you, I've had a time getting back into the swing of it. grumble But onward we go, let's have a wonderful day and keep those cards and letters coming in! wink

flowerforyou You know I just LOVElove my 1/2 day Fridays.

Janehadji-ohhh I just love shopping and your new purse sounds like it's a winnerflowerforyou

Lizzie-so glad you found us again, can you imagine how long our monthly posts would be if they didn't stop them at 500noway People would see so many pages and never come back....but we are a chatty group and we always have at least TWO parts each sound like you are really busy too.drinker

calmrose- 4 days is a start and we all have been there, keep it up and before you know it you will be looking at one monthdrinker

DeeDee- out for lunch & dinner and still a lossflowerforyou Congrats on keeping your calories in check. I find when i meet a friend for a lunch or breakfast that we just talk our way through several servers as they change shifts...then we leave a good tip because we have hogged one of their tables for so longnoway

Barbie- I sit at a desk and my printer is in another room and I try to get up after every piece of paper is printed so I keep moving all day...but I still find that I sit way too much and that's probably why when I'm home on the weekends and get to spend time in my kitchen I never sit downohwell Glad your mammogram went well.

Micki-I'm sure that by the time December 1st arrives you are Thanksgiving & Turkey'ed outnoway Just have small tastes of each thing to keep your calories in check and find some time to do a quick walk, even 10 min will help. COLDnoway Yep I'm cold all the time now. Right now my right hand that I use on the mouse is really cold and I have my space heater on under my desk and my coffee cup on it's heater so I can hold the warm cup to warm my hands....yep I'm always cold..but would rather be cold than have that layer of fat surrounding my bodywink

Jolene- I understand trying to get reports done so you can get out of the office...I have all my monthlys due next Tuesday and I'm figuring I will be putting in a long day on Monday and Tuesday to make sure all is done...hoping for no mistakesblushing When our sons were in High School their High School did Guys & Dolls and we really enjoyed it, but then we knew several of the kids in the play so that make it personal for us. Hope your hubby finds a way to enjoy himself and sounds like you have a good plan to eat beforehanddrinker

Lila-so what is in this cleanse smoothie that you are drinkinghuh and does it really work?

Amanda-glad that your Dad wasn't having a heart attack and hoping next weeks appt doesn't turn anything upflowerforyou

Carolyn - take care and don't do anything to further hurt your back, take the kettlebells slowflowerforyou

Kathy- congrats on making 30 lostdrinker Yep it's a good thing to break up the loss into small goals otherwise you are easily discouraged...I had broken mine up into 2.5 lb goals so I was always feeling like I was making progress.

Nancy-what a great Mother & Son thing to do. When the boys were all home I tried to have special times with them too and I really miss those timesohwell

Meg-take care of yourself that's the most important thing to dodrinker Hoping you are feeling better soon.

jb- Congrats on your lossflowerforyou so close to 70 I'm sure we will be seeing your ticker change soon.

Hubby has his interview this morning so we are hoping for the best. We will be having Son #3 & DIL over for dinner tonight and I told them I'd cook so we could stay the course with our good eating habits. I want to keep it all in line when I know that Thanksgiving is next week and I'm sure there will be some meals that will be higher in calories even having a tablespoon here and there of food.

I have officially moved to Level2 on the 30 ds and I soooo don't like a lot of the exercises on this levelgrumble . I keep telling myself it's for my own good and I need this today so that all my tomorrows I am in better health. I had a call last night from one of Mom & Dad's friends and she will be 88 in two months and she has all kinds of exercise equipment in her livingroom and she uses all of it. I think I will use her as an example of what I want to be when I'm in my 80's she has always eaten healthy and has never had excess weight to I want to be like herwink

I best get going. Everyone have a Fabulous Friday (thank you Nancy) and let's keep moving our bodies burning those calories, drinking plenty of waterdrinker and log that food.

November 16, 2012 8:04 AM
We need her name so we can be like her too!! It can be our new motto "Be like Myrtle!!"

I was sooooo disappointed with my weigh in today. I don't know if I'm going to log it or not. I was down .4 but I know it should be better than that. When I got to work I went to the restroom and I think I weigh less now wink I got on the work scale and I weighed 3 pounds less on it today than yesterday. So I'm thinking I will re-weigh tomorrow morning and then log it. Is that cheating?
