Default Roll Call Friday 9-29

Morning everyone!
Beautiful day here! The sun is out and it's gonna be in the 60's I think! I have the bedding on the clothesline, so that's about where my energy went.

I've been sticking pretty good to the old "D" thing. I haven't been on the scale lately, but the clothes are getting looser, so that's a good sign!! I think I'm gonna wait till my Mayo appointment on the 5th and be surprised.

I have been drinking my water and walking too!! It helps when I know some of you guys are doing it too, so thanks for kicking me in the butt gang!! It shouldn't hafta be that way, but it is....

I liked Junie's I dea of keeping all of the recipies together on one thread with sub categories. Is there a way of doing that? Or how else could we do that? It would be so much easier than having so many threads where recipies could get lost, but I don't know how to do it.

Also, has everyone expressed their thoughts about the name change of the forum? Jen brought up a valid point about maybe having separate forums for "weight loss" and "weight gain". I bet as time goes on and we get more members, we will be splitting into separate forums. I can definitely see that happening in the future. Maybe we need to do that now, I'm not sure. What do you think Curious? You know more about this than I do.

Hey Curious, Ms Mod lady! Whenever you think the appropriate amount of time has gone by for people to express their feelings/thoughts on the name change, maybe you could pick out the most popular 3 or 4 and set up a poll? I think that might be a fair way, but what does everyone else think?

OK, I'm done now, and besides, it's time for my walk. I hafta put on my lipstick so I'm a BABE!!! Lemme see, where can I take you guys today..... Well, I hafta go out to the grocery store, but I haven't been back since we got kicked out. Man, I hope they let us back in. You guys promise to behave this time?? GC---NO skateboard!!!

Have great "D" & "E" days!!
Hugs,
LS
PS--GC-I left a voicemail for Billie. Where are you BC? We're getting worried about you!! You haven't checked in for a while and we know you weren't doing the greatest! Only cuz we care about you honey! Can you either call me or post so we know you're ok please? (((Billie)))

Default Morning All

Morning to some of you and afternoon to the rest! Growing up in MN, in the Central Time Zone, it's always been weird to me to be here in the PST zone.

I think Billie is ok. I heard from her on Wednesday. She was in pain but real busy still dealing with paperwork and looking for a new house. I got 2 jokes from her last night so she must be ok, just tired and hurting like most of us here.

Here is my bit for the day (month???) for weight loss and excercise. In order to have the energy, you must have a good night sleep with lots of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. Not awake like this: You can tell if you have REM if you have dreams. If you are not dreaming and cannot sleep, please, please go to your doctor and talk about it. It only takes 5 years to die from no REM sleep and that is where I was at - 0, the big zero, zip, nada REM sleep. Also had some indication that my days and nights were starting to switch since I could not sleep at night I was sleeping in the day. Sooooooo - you will not be able to excercise and will continue to gain weight (I gained 20-30 lbs.) if you don't get a good night's sleep. Be honest with yourself and give your body what it needs.
PM me if you want more info. That is, PM me after you make a dr. appt.

Have great days everyone!!! I love this support group.

Yes Jan, I got your message. I think I may of got a cell call too, but I was in no mans land and didn't have a siginal. I was talking my puter to be fixed again. I shouldn't be carrying it around, but hey who's gonna do it for me. I'm on the laptop now.

I haven't been very well but keep thinking I will get better. I am worse than I was when I first came home. I am only suppose to lift 5 pounds. I don't know if it's from lifting the dog or not. I have to keep it iced down or the pain isn't much better. My family doctor doesn't give me much for pain anyhow. I didn't go today and now he won't be in til Monday. Mark and I are going to look at trailers that day. He wants to show me a new one doesn't cost anymore than the one I'm looking at. But this one is already on a lot, has a garage, trees and it landscaped. My only problem is it has steps everywhere I look and I don't do steps very good at this time.


My diet is coming along ok.I steadly loose some. Well I better back on out of here for now. Thanks for inquiring about me. I got a little joke for you all.
Hugs,
BC

Hi everyone, well I went to the doc today to get knee x-rayed and now he wants an MRI. I am pretty sure it is coming from my back but hey, you can only fall on your knee so many times before it starts complaining. So now that I got the whine out of the way I must confess----I hit the drive thru at McD's. I know, I know, it was a bad idea but as usual I tried to find comfort in food. It wasn't even that good so I don't know why I did it. Well I do know sort of...I think they pipe out that french fry smell so when you drive by it hypnotizes you Yeah, thats it-- thats the ticket. hee hee hee.

So I will be good the rest of the day, I promise! Wont be doing much walking today but I will do my best to stick with fruit and lots of water for the rest of the day. ...Sue

Gaye you and those sillys frogs!!! How hilarious! You get me tickled with some of those that you post....I hate real frogs, but those are adorable I will say!

I tell ya what! That stork got just what he deserved don't ya thunk? Could you even imagine a table full of that many yanguns?? Oh Lordy!!!

They say when you diet if you don't eat something you want once in a while that you will want to eat everything. So you did yourself ok....even if it wasn't really good...

I drank only water until 1:00 pm today when I went to get my bloodwork done. I had such a headache this morning when I woke up I put off going til then. I had to fast after midnite and hadn't had anything since about 8 lastnight. So after I left Quest I downed a Goody Powder for my head and my son's fiance and I headed straight to the Chinese Food Buffet. Oh was I ever starving! I had unsweet tea, some salad, boiled eggs, a broccoli salad, which was really good, a couple slices of nanner, and a small piece of watermelon. Oh was it good! Then I had fried rice, bourbon chicken, mixed veggies, green beans, salmon and that was about it. I watched my portions and didn't stuff myself. No dessert! I never eat dessert when I eat out. So is what I ate ok? It was sooooo good! I was having a veggie attack! I do that. I get to wanting something and nothing satisfies me and I always know what my body is telling me. Its time to get those veggies! I love em! I love Chinese Food and nobody here does. So I sneak away and get it about once or twice a month.

I swannee! I can sit at this computer for about an hour and my ankles get to where they want to swell anymore. I don't know what the deal is with my ankles. If I sit for a few minutes and get up they just hurt. In the mornings when I get up especially. I have to be careful going downstairs in the morning they hurt and are so stiff feeling. Its mostly weight bearing. When I walk a few minutes they get ok. But I can sit and get up and they just really hurt! Any clues? Between that and the numbness/ burning in the top of my leg I wonder what has gone awry now.

Hope everyone had a good day today.

Sher
