Personal challenge between HP and D!!!



Recommended Posts

I'll work on an official 12-step program for Scale-addict Anonymous members. In the meantime, perhaps anyone needing the daily trip to a scale could enlist the help of a creative middle-schooler to draw a scale on cardboard that you can step on every morning. It might be a good idea to have the message "Lookin' Good" as the "weight" that the arrow is pointing toward.

This is one of the funniest things ever!!! It is such a good idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay....so I have only looked at the scale 10 times today...only stood on it 2 times...and thats all for today...I promise.

I have to find some kid who will draw me a scale that say looking good..lol too bad we cant make it have different phrases so it was a different thing every time i step on it!

Could make one with an opening where the number reads and then make a circle with different sayings on it and attach that on the back so the saying show through the hole where the number should be and you can rotate it to say what you want....like....

Lookin' Good Hot Stuff!!

My,You Are SOOOO Light!!

Wow!! Look Who IS Skinny NOW!!

You Don't Even Hit The Radar!!

Try Again, I Didn't Feel a Thing!!

You are cracking me up....I am going to have to make a home made scale.

Ok....since it has been a rainy day today....I did 3.2 miles on the stationary bike, 50 crunches on my upper, lower and both oblique abs, 10 minutes on the gazelle, 2 sets of 20 on all arm muscles and then 10 minutes of hitting the heavy bag....man I was sweating something sick...lol Of course when you are doing all of this in a garage that in the garage which felt like 100 degrees that sweat can be expected.

I know its late and I am trying not to eat past 7:15pm but I got out of work 2 hours late so I am off schedule today.

Sorry you had a sucky day HP, tomorrow will be better! sleep well!

Yes, we are taking the laptop..so we will have computer access. It was funny last nite we were looking at the hotel....it is kinda cheesey...but anyway...they have bike rentals..well we saw some that KIND of looked like a bike, but they had a top over them and looked more like a car...LOL

I was like..ya that would be the lazy way around....

We are going to be at disney....but I cant imagine...I wish the kids hadnt started back to school...it would of been great to have them go along as well.

BUT....

My one daughter is working, and is my son...and the youngest is doing major homework...so they will be occupied...actually...leslee is only working the weekend...

Well...I am waiting........and waiting.........I really wish 1 would come on already....

Okay...so I am slowly breaking away from my scale...its tough...

I think I may need another fill...I think I can eat more than I should before I get full. I go back for another follow up on Monday.. hopefully he will agree with me and give me my second fill!

I have been good with the eating healthy..that part hasn't been a problem and I have done really well with exercise this week..between biking, doing a little extra cardio and doing some light weight lifting, I am pretty proud of how much I have done this week! ((pats herself on the back)) I use to find every excuse in the book to avoid exercising and now I am working out between 1-2 hours a day!

When you all go on these 20-30 mile long rides, how long does it usually take you to cover that ground?

A lot of the girls at work are really supportive of my exercise efforts and have told me they would ride with me on the trail down the street from my house, my husband rides with me every time so it is nice to have more people be so supportive!

D~ are you having your gallbladder check out tomorrow?? I hope it goes well, I have see a lot of people who have lost a lot of weight and then theirs goes bad..

HP~ What results are you waiting for?? I hope you get good news!

tigerlili....I do say I think you are picking up the slack for me this week as far as the exercise is concerned....You keep working as hard as you are......you are doing great.....

I think I could use a fill.....but I dont go back until Sept.

Well....since we are all friends here...

I had a breast biopsy

They were supposed to have my results today...went and took off work, husband took off work to go with me..get there, and they dont have them back yet.

So..she said....can you come in tommorow...Well...HELLO!!!!!

I am leaving for florida, and they want me to just schedule a visit with the surgeon next week to get them. Hello again...NO...I am going to be out of town..

So...I am going back tommorow....and HOPEFULLY GETTING GOOD NEWS.

My mom had breast cancer....so it is nothing for me to play around with..I hated the fact that it is interupting my life...I am working so hard to get healthy.....and I suppose this is one more way of doing that.

I just DONT LIKE NOT BEING IN CONTROL......And this is just odd.

so...that is the results I am waiting on..sorry...didnt mean to unload....

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
