Good Morning Trudie and all to follow. :salut

 

I am in!

 

It's going to be in the 80s today! It has been so cool and rainy for most of the month so far. I know I won't forget to turn the a/c on today LOL, but let's hope I remember to switch back to heat tonight so we all don't freeze. :bcb_worry Got to love the temp extremes around here this time of year.

 

Ok, my plan for today indicates an iFit power walking workout (I would rather run though :bcb_happy) and grilled pork tenderloin for dinner. I'm going to make a plan for my snacks again today also. It helped yesterday, my snacking was so much more under control!

 

Make it great day, buddies! It's all up to you. :bcb_smile

Hi everyone, I am in!

 

I was up early and did my exercise while my puppy was sleeping! Sorta like have a newborn.. the first 2 night he did really good, but last night he had me up every 2 hours! I haven't be able to get any good pictures - he won't sit still! LOL

 

I need to go get some groceries.. I am feeling like making the french toast I mentioned a couple days ago (WW english muffins & eggbeaters)

 

It's been quiet here, hope all is doing well and on track.

Good Morning! :wave:

 

I am in!

 

As much as I start to rebel over time about having to count everything with Flex, I just cannot handle being on Core right now. I do fine with the Core stuff but I find I am treating some non-Core stuff as if it is Core stuff (mostly dried fruits & nuts). I think it's because there are so many things I *can't* eat that it's probably not going to work for me to do Core, which eliminates/restricts some of the stuff that I can. I can't eat fat-free cheese since I can't have (cow's) dairy and I can't eat soy cheese either because it's not good to have soy multiple times a day. Soy milk is my only option (I can't stand rice milk and I'm sensitive to almonds). That leaves sheep & goat's cheese as my second dairy serving of the day and they aren't Core! I also try to get in some nuts and that's not Core either. On one level I know that I can probably make it work with my WPAs to have my other dairy & nuts but it leaves me no other room to move. I have some gluten-free flour so I can make bread or pizza dough or other such things but there would rarely be any points for that unless I skip the second dairy and/or any nuts. It's just too much stress for me to make it all work right now so sticking with Flex is the least stressful way for me to get in my healthy 9s. It is kind of ironic that I need to stick with Flex to have a healthier and more balanced diet (*for me*)!! :crazy:

 

I'm trying to keep a positive attitude and do the best I can but it seems that the more I eliminate things from my diet, the more things I find I still have to eliminate. I was doubled over with cramps and gas for hours and hours yesterday after having popcorn. It was excruciating (just as bad as my wheat/dairy reaction last weekend). I've noticed more headaches and stomachaches when I eat popcorn but it really hit home yesterday that I have to cut it out (and most likely *all* corn products as I don't tolerate any of them that well). I have my suspicions about soy as well but I'm not ready to face that today. I know I can probably check into goat's milk (but again, that doesn't come fat-free, just 1% so another strike against Core for me right now!!). I'm just hanging on by a thread here and need to commit to staying OP today and face as much of this as I can, when I can! To be honest, I find myself more and more scared to eat because so many things make me feel sick (even the natural sugar in fruit spikes off my blood levels for heaven's sake!!). In turn, that makes me resentful, which causes me to take my anger out with food (most often the stuff I "can" have as the stuff I can't have isn't worth it anymore), which in turn makes me even more sick (just from the volume-- my stomach can't handle a big amount of food at one time anymore without a lot of backlash).

 

As if that's not enough, I watched "Flow" last night, a movie about the global crisis in water. I've long suspected that my skin infections are in no small part caused by the chlorine (and other chemicals) in the water, just from showering. I drink reverse osmosis water and cook with it as well but the cost of hooking the shower and water system in the house isn't feasible. It makes me wonder how much of my health issues are related to water quality. I'm not going to complain after seeing what governments and corporations have done to the drinking water of millions of people in developing countries. But still, what do you do with something like that??

 

Anyway, on to today. The schedule at the gym is changing at the end of this week, so I'm going to go in for a spin class today to find out if my favourite instructor is going to have any classes this summer. My second favourite gym instructor is off for the entire summer so I'm already bummed about that. I'm not sure what the plan is this afternoon. We could go see Angels & Demons today (didn't make it yesterday), depending on DH's schedule. I have to take Claire to her orthodontist appointment right after school. My youngest sister said something about coming over for a bike ride early this evening so we'll see what happens!

 

Have a great OP day everybuddy! :salut

I am in!!

 

Morning all!

Aw, Denise, I want pictures!! Did we hear a name yet? I can't remember!!

 

Morning CINDY! Morning TRUDIE!

 

Some of you might have read my concerns with going out to eat last night. I had it all planned, but then heard the "specials", and went with that instead. Didn't make any BAD choices, actually did quite well. Have NO idea the point count, so am just guessing. But today is my weigh in day anyway, and tomorrow I start over, so what is, IS! I started with a glass of wine, a treat for me! Then I had the shrimp cocktail...five lovely shrimp, how come at home mine don't taste that good? The special was pan seared halibut over orzo (with some crab in it). Out of this world! I never had halibut before, and it was delish. Flavor galore! I ate 1/2 of it, and brought the rest home for lunch! THEN, dh wanted dessert. I would have been fine with a cup of coffee, but he ordered it. I figured, what a bite or 2? He ordered the Key Lime pie. Now, I've had Key Lime pie many, MANY times. This was so different. OMG, this was amazing. It wasn't a slice of pie, it was an individual, round piece, with a crust that was a good 1/2"thick all around. They filling was so thick, I can't even describe it. And, I probably shouldn't...I think we used to call this FOOD PORN!!!:bcb_blush

 

Anyhow, I didn't stop at 2 tastes, I ate 1/2. Oh well. let me tell you, it was WORTH every single point!! Ahhhhhhhhhh.....

 

I will go to WW tonight at my usual time, even though I'm off today, and probably could go NOW, no I'll go when I normally do.

 

The rest of my post is not WW or food related, so don't go any further if you don't want to.

 

It's my granddaughter, Courtney, the angel who just had the Bat Mitzvah, the one who is so much worse than her mother ever was, the one who right now I feel sick to my stomach because of. I've mentioned the problems before, but I just don't know how to help. I'm more upset with my daughter, though, for the way she handles things. I try to step back, after all I am ONLY the grandmother, but I'm so afraid for this child. She has no "fear" of consequences...nothing. She just doesn't care. and that's because she knows she can (and does) get away with it. I feel like there's got to be something to put the fear of God into her. But, any suggestions I make are "wrong", at least in my dd's eyes. So, why do I bother? I told my dd that this morning. I said, 'anything I say is wrong, so why bother'...she said, she just needs to vent. Then, kid, vent to your friends. Not your mother. I'm worried sick about my granddaughter. My daughter always takes the EASY way out. And, doesn't follow through. And gives in. Let me give an example. This was yesterday. Courtney had "mouthed off" the night before (not unusual), and was told to come right home after school. Fine. DD had to work till around 3ish. Dgd called her at work, and said she "forgot" her key (I've told them repeatedly to make sure they actually SEE the key when she leaves for school), dd said just to go home and wait on the front porch, she'd be home in 20 min. "ok". Calls her again in about 10 min, "I'm at L's house" (which is just down the street). DD said to go home....oh there was all this talk in between about "can L comeover for dinner?" "NO, come right home". "Well, I'll just stay here for a while, I'll be home at 7",.....hangs up. HANGS UP???????????:bcb_cry: DD gets home, of course dgd isn't home. NOW, and this is what really pi$$es me off, dd says, "it was so quiet in the house at that point, I let her stay"!! WRONG WRONG WRONG in so many ways! So, 7:00 comes and goes, no dgd. DD (claimes....I don't even believe HER half the time)went to L's house, no answer. See dgd's shoes, front door is open, no answer. Goes home and calls...no answer. Finally, it's now 8:00, dgd answers the phone, "oh, I lost track of time, I'll be right home"....walks in at 8:30. This is a 13y/o!! What's going to happen when she's 16??? If she makes it that far!! This kid is going to get in such trouble.

 

So, she walks in with the attitude, "I know, I'm grounded for 3 weeks, take my DS, take my phone, whatever", and goes upstairs.

 

Grounding means nothing.Taking away things means nothing. I don't know what to say anymore. MY suggestion, which of course she won't listen to, is talk to someone at school, get counselling (tried that, dd says it didn't help, and just cost $$), CALL THE POLICE! I said call the police when she doesn't come home, and maybe THEY can put the "fear of God" into her. SOMETHING HAS TO HELP!!

 

I feel sick to my stomach right now. I'd like to take her and have her come live with us, but that's not reality. This kid needs help. She used to listen to me, she used to listen to my other dd. None of us can get through to her. AND, she's failing 3 classes. I don't know what to do. I don't know what to say. I love that child like she's my own. I just hate to think of what's going to happen to her.

 

Well, thanks for letting me vent. Ha, I sound like my dd now.

 

OK, I've got to shower, and get going. I've got a dermatologist appt in an hour, might need a little plastic surgery on my forhead...don't know if I mentioned it here, a month or so ago, I had this wierd growth on my forhead, it's mostly gone, and to me it only looks like a scar, but my one doc (they did a biopsy, it was negative) says it should still be removed. But, if it's just a scar, I'd rather live with it then have any surgery, even just a little bit. OK, I'm nervous, I'll admit it!

 

I'll check back in later.

Goooodddd Moooorrrnnnning Buddies!

 

I've only got a few minutes before I have to get ready for work but I wanted to check in wth you all and say I AM IN!!!!

 

The workout with the trainer was great - it was only have an hour but she kicked my butt with all kinds of challenging exercises. We even used an 8lb medicine ball! Later I think I will start to really feel it in my shoulders. My legs were shakey afterwards, which is a good sign I suppose.

 

I am going afterwork to practice for the dragon boat races next week. I have never done it but can just myself falling in the water. Oh well, it will be fun and good exercise too.

 

I'll touch base later as I have to get my lunch ready and feed the pets (all 4 of them) and also get dressed. Where does the morning go?

 

Trudie, Laurie, Denise, Kimberly and everyone else - have a fantastic OP day!

Morning to KIMBERLY & TAMARA!! I think we were all posting at the same time!

 

Just wanted to pop in before I leave for doctor appt.

 

Tamara, I saw on Face Book that you worked out with a trainer...Good job!

I find I don't work 1/2 enough WITHOUT my trainer! I've got a new one, temporarily, while mine is away for 2 months. It's interesting to see how differently they work. Oh, who cares, as long as I work!!

Kimberly, gosh, I didn't realize just how bad your allergies WERE! Holy cow, girl! Maybe you need to sit down with a nutritionist and figure out a diet (I don't mean diet-diet:bcb_wink3) that won't be so harmful to your system. Just my 2cents, of course!

 

OK, I better get going, nothing like putting off the inevitable!

I'm in!

 

I'm trying so hard to at least come a little closer to the goal I set for myself at my WW meeting after the first of the year. Our leader passed out postcards and she will mail them to us over Memorial Day. She said that postcard is coming whether we made the goal we set for ourselves or not.

I know I didn't make it, but I've done better than I have in a long time. I guess that's something.

 

One thing, all of you put me to shame in the exercise department. You are all such good role models. I was doing so well with my walking, and have slacked off a bit. I must turn that around again, and get in some weights on a regular basis.

 

Laurie, wow, that sounded like a wonderful meal, and you did really well with it, eating half. I admit I have trouble doing that when I do go out for such a meal. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. As for your dgd, boy, I certainly don't have any answers. It's hard to comprehend kids not caring at all, but I know there are so many now like that. I can only imagine your worry.

 

I do understand your frustration with your dd and her need to vent....to you! My dd does so to me, not about anything as serious as you are facing. Usually it's about work. Of course as her mother I try to give suggestions and of course she tells me I don't know what I'm talking about. She even says to me she doesn't want me to try to fix things, she just wants to....vent! You are right when you say they should vent to their friends then if that's all they want. It's hard for a mother to not try to fix things.

 

Kimberley, while I don't post often, I do read, but I had no idea either that you faced such extreme allergies. Like Laurie said, would seeing a professional make your task of finding foods you can eat any easier? I admire your determination to follow WW in the middle of all the obstacles.

 

It's a beautiful day out there today. I need to run to Wegmans and then get a few things done before trying to get out to pot up a couple planters for our back porch.

 

Have a great OP day everyone.

Thanks for the support buddies. I do pretty good at balancing my diet on a daily basis. Sometimes I want to "test the waters" and wind up with situations like last weekend when I had diarrhea for two days after having some wheat & dairy, or last night when I was doubled over with intestinal cramps from eating popcorn. The situation seems more "dire" now because the more I detox, the more sensitive I am to anything that my body can't tolerate. Not only that, but I'm finding things that I used to be able to eat are making me sick. The list of what I can eat keeps dwindling!! :bcb_cry: I've been doing a lot of work to come up with different recipes and am stocking the kitchen to set myself up for success, not failure. But I do get depressed sometimes because some days it just seems like the glass is 3/4 empty instead of 1/4 full!! :crazy:

 

Laurie- I'm sorry about the situation with your daughter and granddaughter. Claire's not even 11 and the attitude coming from her has me exhausted and demoralized all too often. Part of me can understand DD's feeling that it was peaceful not having her around. It's called the "easy" way for a reason-- sometimes it is easier! But the problem is that payback is a female dog. These kids need to know that we're going to protect them (even from themselves) and it's the worst kind of chaos for a child to not have clear boundaries and expectations. The biggest thing going on with parents these days seems to be a direct reaction to how they were raised. If they felt they had too many boundaries, they think that they're doing the right thing by giving their children less boundaries. They also want to either be "friends" with their kids or have it be more "peaceful" by not arguing all the time. I *hate* having to argue and have all that tension in my house but we have a responsibility to these kids so it's our job to just suck it up and deal with it. It's like the toddlers throwing a tantrum in the grocery store. You *need* to run your errands but you also need to parent those kids. I can't tell you how many times I had to abandon grocery carts to take the kids home, get them straightened out and then come back to the store when we were all in better control. It would have been "easier" to just give them whatever they needed to behave in the store so I could take care of my stuff. But that's not in their best interest.

 

I think the only thing you can do is be there to *listen* to DD. Without you telling her what she should be doing, that removes the opposition. She feels like she's got DGD attacking her on one side and you on the other. If you just listen to her and perhaps throw in some suggestions *from time to time*, she'll wind up listening to you even more. I'd also work on DGD whenever you've got her, explain what she's doing to her mother and how this is going to get worse in time. You'll catch more flies with honey with your DD and you probably need to break out the rod a bit with DGD!!

 

 

Susie- Exercise, like staying OP, is just a daily *choice* we need to make. Don't beat yourself up about not doing enough yesterday. Just look towards today and do what you can!

 

Tamara- My sister used to do dragon boat races a lot. I think it was an excuse to drink but someone had to paddle the boat! LOL :bcb_grin

Kimberly, you're exatcly right, and that's what I will TRY to do from now on. You want advice? Then ask me. You don't? Fine...

 

So, went to the doctor...and he did remove whatever it was. My head is still numb from many injections (ouch), and I feel a slight stinging now where there are now stitches. I think I'm gonna go take a nap. it hurts :(

Weighed in today. I'm down 2 lbs. which means I'm still up 1 lb. from this time last month. The past two days have been really hard for non weight related reasons. I'm proud of myself b/c I feel that I've made decent food decisions in spite of that. This is hard for me, because usually when I'm upset food is the first thing I turn to. I'll try to post later and do personals, just not feeling great right now.

Weigh in tonight...drumroll~~~ down 4. yes, I was down! Phew! that took me to 35.6. that's only 7.2 from my GOAL!! That just goes to show you that I need to quit my job! LOL. it's work that's making me fat! I knew it!! Really though, being home this week, I made SURE that I journalled every day. I used up ALL my WPA's and just about ALL my AP's. Now, this week is really going to be a challenge. I forgot to mention it before, NO EXERCISE FOR A WEEK. Not till the stitches come out! Holy Cow!! A year ago, I'd use that as a great excuse NOT to have to exercise. Now I'm like, what am I gonna do? Something about sweat dripping down into the incision...things like that:bcb_blush

 

I'm in a good amount of pain still. I keep popping the Motrin, but it's not touching it. I've tried taking naps, phone always wakes me up. I'm not used to feeling this way!! I had an appt with my (new)trainer, and had to cancel it. ICK. Don't like this one bit! It was absolutely beautiful out today, still is, but it hurts too much to even go for a walk. Stupid stitches!

 

Tomorrow, hopefully I can at least go for a "leisurly" walk. I've got to do SOMETHING! Without my APs to rely on, man, I'm gonna have to cut down on my EATING!!!

 

OK, off to the couch. I'm going to be a couch potato for a couple of days.:bcb_down

Just popping in to say a quick hello.

 

Jeni, congrats! I know it can be so hard, but you're doing it! It really is getting in the right frame of mind and not detouring off it - no matter what!

 

Laurie, gee... I am so sorry to hear that Courtney is becoming a handful. I don't wish that on ANY parent. I wish I had some good advise, but I really am at a loss.. as we tried so many things with our daughter and she just had made up her own mind and did her own things. You can do everything right, and still, they reach a certain age and God gave them free will.. you can only hope and pray from that point on. God knows.. we are still praying for our daughter who made all the wrong choices. bcb_sad her whole life just saddens us deeply..

 

Okay, not WW related, but I finally got a couple pictures! It is SOOOOOO hard to take a puppy's picture - actually almost impossible! These aren't the greatest photo's.. but they will have to do!

 

After a long stuggle with names (Bentley, Quincy, Johnson).. we finally settled on Cooper. There is a reason... I mentioned I bought a Mini Cooper about 8 months ago, and DH also bought a Mini Cooper Clubman - 6 months ago (we love our Mini's) so Cooper was just fitting!

 

Here he is: (I waited till he was sleepy)

Hi Buddies,

 

Laurie~My heart breaks for you. I am so sorry to about the problems with Courtney.

Congrats on that fabulous loss, you are so close to goal. GO LAURIE!!!

 

Kimberley~I think a nutritionist could help you. Gosh, I can't imagine having all those sensitivities.

I know you like core, but it seems like you do better with flex.

 

Cindy~It sounds like you have a great plan it place.

 

Denise~Good job getting some exercise in. And Cooper is ADORABLE! Thanks for posting pictures.

 

Tamara~I have often thought I could benefit from a trainer. DH is not convinced that that is necessary.

 

Charlene~Hello, I hope you were able to get a walk in today.

 

Jeni~Good job on the loss, keep working the program, and you will see, the program will work for you.:bcb_wink3

 

It's been an OP day. I didn't exercise today. Just don't have it in me. This waking up so much at night is for the birds....I'm tired!

 

Good night buddies.
