Current Weight-201.0~~as of 04.14.13
When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.
Walked 3/4 of a mile on lunch today in the freakin' cold! It's like 34 degrees and windy out there. Good thing the sun was shining.
This whole things look bigger on the computer reminds me of a story my friend told me once about her hubby. It's a bit naughty so in white for those who don't want to read it. She thought he was cheating on her so she started checking his online habits and sure enough he was chatting and sharing webcam pics with a woman online. Anyway....the woman kept writing comments about how large it was and what she said next to me on the phone about killed me. She said, He must have held the camera right up to it because if she saw it for real she wouldn't say that! LOL!!! Oh and they have since worked through all that and are still together.
Sorry for that I just had to share!

Cassie, OK, maybe I'm not worthy to cast the first stone.
April, I'm surprised she took him back, but glad they were able to work through it. Kudos on your walk in the cold. I'm in southern Ohio and we're having darned near spring temps today.
I don't know what's going on--don't know if it's my crazy computer or my crazy mind. I've had two posts that I was sure I submitted that aren't appearing on the thread. I retyped and resubmitted the first one, and second time around it's still not there--like it's getting lost in cyberspace or something. Come to think of it, I had one last night I was sure I submitted that I don't see now. And I swear I haven't been drinking. LOL

Tuesday was fine. Staying with my kids again and traveling back and forth to work is still complicated but I am somehow managing to keep my calories in line, having appropriate food at work and at kids' home. Walked again today, not so far this time, it was better. Tracked my water and was 48 ounces so I am drinking less than usual - still having green tea though. Thanks to all who offered quinoa recipes - hopefully I will get to try one on the weekend. As last week, no scales here.
Happy Tuesday everyone.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
Mern, southern Ohio??? That's like an oxymoron to me.
April, congrats. One step at a time. You got this, you know what to do!
Robin, congrats so far... now lets get back on the water.
Ladies, I can safely report that Hope survived Mardi Gras... unless out of curiosity she ventures out to Bourbon Street tonight. I took a couple chirrens out there (my GF middle DD and her friend) and met up with Hope and her DH. Hope, please tell him that I didn't just call him a DH! We all had a great time. The weather held off for a while but we did get a few sprinkles towards the end. Now I'm going to see if I can get my GF to go with me this week to meet up with them... they offered to cook again. If not, I may just have to go alone because you know this fat boy can't pass up a good meal! Hell to the no!
