Hmmm what did I do this weekend....

Friday was a date night...first night in a long time with no one else in the house besides me and hubby. Was weird but really nice :)

Saturday...Had a Medium & Tarot reader to the house for some friends. A family of friends (sisters) lost their mom last year to ovarian cancer and the youngest is really having a tough time...so I brought my friend who does mediumship here so they could have time with her. What a beautiful time really....lots of tissue...but lots of fun and laughter. Chrispy isn't a blood sister to them but, part of the family really so I got to see her again too :) Always nice to have friends around. Got the house nice and clean with DH's help...that was really nice so I was able to enjoy myself with my friends all afternoon.

Sunday...Taught a Reiki II class today and then took my son to a graduation party for a friend of his. I've known this friend of his since they went to grammer school together so it was fun seeing him and his parents at his party. Still feel like I"m getting old with these, what used to be little kids now men. Geesh where did that time go? Just got done paying bills...busy day....so hoping to catch a little TV before having to go to bed and starting the week all over again.

Weekends sure do fly by don't they ladies? Oh does anyone out there have a Wii? I have one and we got the Wii fitness program...I finally got the ok after my accident to not have to wear the neckbrace so I've been trying to do the Wii Fit a little each day. Well I've made 3 days so far and it's been fun. I'm hoping to do it at least 3 times this coming week...it's a start :thumbup: Gotta get this butt moving...my weight listing says 205 but that's in my dreams right now...I'm right back up to 211 AGAIN! 2.5 weeks of not being able to move or drive myself anywhere and BINGO...what did I do to keep busy? Oh yea all the bad stuff..the no no, instant weight to the hips and tummy no nos. Gotta get back on track.

Anyone interested in a exercise challenge this month? Yea yea I know Gun Ho at the beginning then peeter out but, hey it's worth a try so I figured I'd ask :thumbup: Walking counts......swimming counts.......sex..if it's more than 2 minutes counts HAHAHAHAHAHA

I am here too.....just been really busy, trying to get back to normal!

We took our grandkids, along with their families, and our good friends and their family to the local carnival, that is in town for our little Fiesta Days. Lots of vendors, and fun things going on especially for kids. Then today my friend and I took the 3 year olds back to the carnival for a Bracelet session so they could ride all they wanted. From there we went for ice cream---had a small cone---then home, and the kids played in the sprinklers. Rick grilled some steak, I hit the shower, and am ready for bed, and it has not even hit 9 PM yet!!

We also spent part of the weekend at the local API golf tournament----and BBQ cookoff contest.

I did ok, I took it easy, did not lift or do anything like that, just lots of walking!

My drainage from my incision has continued, but not worsened or anything, just is annoying!!!

Most of the strips are coming off now, the belly button is still fully covered in the steri strips, and shows no sign of them loosening, so not sure how it really looks yet!

Weight is coming down.....but I swell big time by evening!!!

They weighed me the day of surgery and I was 184.5. Then the next day I stepped on at home and weighed 198!!! Slowly it has dropped and is now averaging 177, I was down to 175---today I am back at 177!!! But with no fill at all, I am just thrilled for it not to be soaring upwards!!

I would love to get a Wii and try the workouts---let me know how they are Sherry!!!

Betty-----I actually bought a flying Monkey and was going to send it to the next one who went MIA----it is like a slingshot, you can shoot it flying across the room, but anytime it is moved it makes these screeching jungle monkey sounds----so I figured the mail people would freak out if it was in an envelope!!!

Well I am out of here and off to bed........

Hugs to all!!!

Thanks for the June thread!

Kat

Sherry, we've got the Wii, we've had lots of fun with the bowling and golf. I saw where Kmart had the fitness software for ?? $89.00 I think or there abouts.

Kat, don't over do it, where are the pictures :lol:

My office girl is sick and wants me to come answer the phones because it hurts her throat to talk, I'm not a happy business owner right now, LOL. At least she came to work.

Gotta run, take care every one.

Happy June everyone!

I went to visit my aunt and uncle down in no man's land this weekend with my mom. we did some shopping and just a bunch of relaxing. it was such a nice weekend minus the downpours saturday afternoon. It is so quiet down by them and can get a little scary when im the only one awake in the house and you cant see a damn thing outside!! but it was a good weekend. I got great news on my upcoming vacation to DR. there is a resort the my friend and I really wanted to stay at but it was more expensive so we booked at a different one. well i have been checking the price everyday for the last month and it has always been more money at one point I was just going to break down and book the more expensive one but at that point the price went up even more!! So I checked it on saturday and not only had the price gone down but it was even cheaper then the one we originally booked. so I cant my agent ASAP and he was like we are closing in 7 minutes but I will try to book the new one and then cancel the old one and call you back to confirm. I was bouncing around the house waiting for him to call back and I was chatting with my friend that is coming with me online and I wanted to tell her so bad but I didnt want to get her hopes up. so as we were talking the agent called me back and confirmed that he was able to change it so in the middle of my conversation with Karolina- my friend - I was like I have awesome news. And when I told her she was like How? what? are you kidding??? so it was really good news for us...YAY ME!!! :-) now I just need to make our final payment to the agent this week and we are all set. I have been trying to get some shopping done for it little by little but this is the one time that weight loss is being a pain in my booty. I dont want to buy anything now and then have it not fit when we are leaving. so we are going to make a shopping schedule for when she comes home - she is teaching in poland right now and will be coming home 1 week before we leave. so we will be shopping for 3 weeks worth of supplies in a 1 week period. goodthing we both love to shop!! sorry im rambling im just very excited about this trip.

have a great day!!

Hey Pat...yea that's about right on the price although my son works for a video game place so I get it with his discount :eek: Talk about an accurate scale...nothing like stepping on the thing and it says OHH hahaha. You pick a wii me and she's thin...umm until you step on the dang scale and you watch the BMI thing go up as it goes up your "me" gets fat ZOIKS. The dang thing looks down at her belly too hahaha. It is alot of fun...hula hoops, skiing, step aerobics even balancing, stretching, strengthening workouts. Its fun and since you can change between the exercises the time goes by quickly. It's just getting your ARS on the thing in the first place UGH.

My friend just dropped off some CDs for me to try Hip Hop Abs and some of the Turbo Jam series. She's a coach on BeachBody and I joined her team hoping she could motivate me. Well I have those CDs and she's sent me links to WOWY from Beachbody to join her in exercising. I'm signed up for Saturday and Sunday to workout with her so we'll see how that goes :) She's also one of my Reiki students so I told her she needs to teach her teacher hahaha

Work is still nuts.....DH is putting a ceiling fan in our bedroom so I have to run and help him :) you know clean up the mess UGH. Plaster all over my sheets ewwwwwwww. bye for now honey bunnies

Hi to the Jersey crowd--

Just got my approval on Monday (YEA!) and I am scheduled for my band next Tuesday (YIKES). Now the nerves are starting and I just want this done!

I hope that I will be as successful as all of you seem to have been. I have a LONG road ahead of me with about 150 lbs that need to GO!

I have twin boys (teens) that I need to be in much better shape to keep up with! We've always done lots of adventures but they often dared near kill me as I always forced myself to keep up. I look forward to the day when I can do things much easier than I do today. Please send positive energy my way next Tuesday! Thanks!

CONGRATS TRISHA!!!! My nerves were fine until I got on the operating table and my eyes started crying out of nowhere. the nurse and doctor rubbed my arm and said it would be ok and 2 seconds later I was knocked out and the next thing I remember is waking up.

what doctor are you using if you dont mind me asking?

Hello Y'all!

Boy, the winds are so high here today. I came home and my pool is so full of leaves etc. I guess I have to go out and clean it up some because it just keeps falling and it will really be a mess by tomorrow. Not my favorite job though.

Congrat Trisha! At least you won't spend weeks worrying, your time will come very fast!

Where is everyone at? I hope this thread isn't falling apart.

Mandy girl, what's up? It's really unusual for you not to post, are you alright?

Pat just because you had to go to work don't mean you can skip here!

Sherry miss busy bee, what's going on today?

Kat hope your trip to texas is going good.

Jessica how is your trip planning doing? Did you find all kinds of stuff to wear?

Eileen hope you are not working too hard. I miss your posts!

Miss retirement Cindy, come and say hello!

Well, I know I missing some, but the mess outside is calling my name so I better do it before I run out of energy.

Catch you all later!

I just ordered a wii for my sons as their 8th grade graduation present. After I drop a few pounds, I think I'll get the wii fit for moi ! (At the moment I exceed their max weight limit).:wink2:

UGH.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

      2. Bettyboop56

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
