Sweater Motivation

I found some new motivation. All the lovely sweaters I want to knit from this book I ordered for this lovely yarn only go up to a 40 inch bust. Right now, I'm many, many inches too wide!


Yesterday was okay until I had the sundae. I even got one of those new GO ACTIVE Adult Happy Meals with grilled chicken salad.

My stepometer doesn't work. I think that's how they get you to keep buying the meals!

The Cheshire Cat! You're a sly cat who grins on the outside, but schemes on the inside. Even your best friends don't realize that you may actually be their worst enemy!


You're bubblegum!!! You love to have a good time, and enjoy being around others who feel the same way. You tend to be the life of the party, and people like to be around you as much as they can.

Here's my fitday log

Doing better

I ate much better yesterday. I had my usual english muffin with peanut butter, bowl of raisin bran with skim milk, and calcium oj for breakfast. Mid-day snack was a pear and low-fat mozzarella string cheese. Lunch was a chicken salad sandwich on a whole wheat wrap with fat-free chips. Dinner was meat ravioli with tomato sauce and a bit of freshly grated parmesan cheese. I had a chocolate chunk granola bar for a night snack. I had water and diet sodas to drink.

Whew. I feel I need the accountability of logging my food. I think I'll start inputting at again.


It's all about class, my dear.
Aristocat! You're a sophisticated cat, proud to
hold your head up high even when somebody ruins
your day. You do have your bad hairball days,
but instead of freaking out over something,
you'd much rather take it in stride and move

Here kitty, kitty

What's in it for me?
Alley Cat! You're a wheelin' & dealin' kind of cat
who not only has the unique ability to take
things in stride, but let it be known you're
smarter than you look.

Netter's second weigh-in

Well, I maintained this week. Not surprising considering what I ate. There was a Hershey bar in there, buttery movie popcorn, an all you can eat breakfast buffet and pizza!


Must try harder. Good news is, there's not much competition!

How'd you do Nattie?

Fur's 2nd weigh-in

This morning wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Especially with the 2 pints of ice cream last week, the wedding cake (only had a few bites) and the ice cream cake Friday night.
The numbers are... 191 (for real!)
I don't really know how you lose weight with the diet I had last week, but I'll take it!

mmmmmmm Candy (not a real shocker)

You're chocolate. You're the old soul type, people
feel that they have known you their entire
life. Many often open up to you for they view
you as thoughtful and trustworthy. Although
people trust you, you have a hard time trusting
them. You prefer to keep your feelings bottled
up inside, or display them very quietly. It is
alright to open up every once in a while.

what candy are you?

An appropriate post, I think.

You're Skittles!!! You have a very interesting
personality, you're so unique. You're the kind
of person who always thinks outside of the box.
You're also a very accepting individual, and
believe in inner beauty.

Lunch temptation

Well, I did well for lunch today. I went to the diner with some friends and really wanted something greasy with fries. Instead I got a shrimp wrap with a side salad.

Now, I just have to resist the call of the vending machine. Man do I want something sweet!


We all need some support. That's why we're doing this together. Maybe you'll be motivated when we post weights Monday.

Walking is a great idea and it will be good for you and mom to get out and do it together.

I know about stress. Things here at work are crazy and when I get home I've got the baby to think about, too. I've got employees with family health crises, people quitting, and people who can't get along with coworkers in other departments. Plus, we're moving and merging at the end of next month!

I've done some things to improve my eating, but we rely too much on take out and I shouldn't have had dessert at lunch yesterday. It's so hard when a sales rep takes me out, though. I'm off to a slow start.

How about you, Steph? What's going on for you?

Not Totally Alone

I didn't know that we were supposed to be going crazy with the posts. Now that I know, I will.
I have been a very naughty girl.....
Monday I had Ramen Noodles for lunch and for dinner I had something, I'm not completely sure what though. Plus some onion and Garlic chips.
Yesterday I had a Healthy Choice mac and cheese with chicken cutlets for lunch. For dinner I had A healthy choice teryaki chicken with rice and broccoli. I also had some Ben and jerry's for a snack and some lucky charms. (Told you I was naughty).
Today I have had my 20 oz cup of coffee and that's it. I'm heading out for lunch in about 10-20 minutes so we'll see what that brings.
Needless to say there has been no exercise. (at all.)

Is Anybody Out There?

I don't think I'm in this alone, yet. :)

Yesterday was a better day. I had chicken salad on a whole wheat wrap with fruit salad for lunch and a personal pizza for dinner. Yeah, Yeah, doesn't sound like a "diet" dinner, but I'm nursing so I get a few extra calories today.

Wish me luck. Today's a big day at work. We're making initial announcements about a re-organization.

By the way Stephie, I've started your sweater!

I cheated

I cheated yesterday. My new boss brought Krispy Kremes to a training session and I had one. Someone said it was Maple and I just couldn't resist. Dinner was steak and salad.

No Donuts today! I think a salad for lunch and we're having grilled chicken for dinner.

Dave's been eating mostly meat and vegetables. He's cut out all sugar and most white flour. All he needs to do is add some exercise.

I need to do that to. But, how to find the time?

We had a rough night with Billy last night. He was up at 2:30, 4 and 6. I'm exhausted!

Thats definately true..
I got on the scale and it said 225...
I definately need to go to Curves tomorrow..

My first weigh-in (that's not a comment)

First of all I'd like to say thank you to Annette for starting this. God knows I have no motivation, so this is a good thing. So I stood on the scale this morning and reality set in. 192. Yikes. I hope to be able to fit into clothes that aren't in the PLUS side by labor day. I figure that requires me to lose about 40 pounds. So I guess 150 is my labor day/birthday goal weight.

First weigh in

Okay. I'll go first. I weighed in at 220.5 this morning. That's 9.5 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight. I could detail different milestone weights I've had that were lower, but I won't. I hope to be below 200 by Labor Day, ideally at 190. Right now, I'm just cutting back on portions and cutting out sugars and refined starches, ie, pasta only once a week and no white bread. I have to find time to add some activity.

I want to give props to my husband for losing 14 pounds in his first week on a modified Atkins diet. I'd be doing that too, if I weren't still nursing.

Okay girls. Where are your weights?

First things first

I've thrown down the gauntlet. Will my sisters accept my challenge to see who loses the most weight?
