Got a good chuckle out of your promising to not push Tori. Nice bike!

Now I'm going to watch TV. Goodnight, everyone.
Thanks for the compliment, the shirt actually looks brighter in the picture. It wasn't that obnoxious. I'm not saying that I'm not going to push Tori, I'm just not counting her as one b/c it's to be expected. I'm going to try to get mh to bring her butt back here and I'll push her. Maybe quinn needs a little pushing?

The shirt looked great!!You looked great!!! And it matched your avatar. Thanks for posting. And even if it's not as bright in person it was not obnoxious at all as it was.

I gotta confess I never heard of a tonsil rock. Gotta go consult "the Google" as my friend Tom calls it.

Nobe feel better and happy birthday honey!!! Enjoy!!!!

Yes, quinn DOES need pushing!! I'm feeling a lot better, took two long hikes this weekend in the 80 degree weather (...our normal high is 39!!) and I'm ready to get back on track, yet again! Had a birthday celebration this weekend where cake and ice cream slipped in, but I'm more than ready to get down to summer weight.

Maybe I'll start the new thread for tomorrow to make sure my goals are set.

I can't believe I'm saying this but as much as I hate exercise, I'm actually looking foward to going to the gym tomorrow. I just love this fat melting away and so hope I can continue down to under 200 before hitting another plateau. OK, so you had a weak moment at your parents' home, but we know you'll jump right back on the wagon. Heck, you're such a leader for us that you'll be DRIVING the wagon.

Going to watch TV. Will catch you all tomorrow. !
HA!HA! Actually, in HOP on POP there is a passage that reads,
"Pup up. Brown down.
Pup is down. Where is Brown?
Where is Brown? There is Brown!
Mr. Brown is out of town."

Do you remember the picture of Brown flying off of the teeter-totter? He's in the sky & flying over the town. For some reason, I thought of this in that you're flying through your goals and onto great success. Man, oh man. You may just reach 199 lb before your target date!

Awww. . . You make me blush with your compliment. I really need others to help pull the wagon with me though.

Mike, I figured the shirt was a little darker. Yeah, I miss mh, Rose,
Cassie, Xzyst, Lizzie, Joanna... There are others, too, but I'm tired and can't think of all our regulars who haven't posted for a while. I agree it's about time for Quinn to hop back onto the wagon, but she's always so close to goal that she can afford to take breaks. It'll be fun to push someone around, though. I looked up tonsil rock--I thought maybe your tonsils were infected, but I see it is all contained and can be easily remedied without need for a doctor in most cases. That's good. Here's a funny, one time when my son was about five years old I took him to the doctor for I thought was a yellow pus pocket on his tonsil. Turned out to be a piece of CORN. LOL

Quinn, congrats on those hikes and on jumping back into the wagon since
you're now feeling better.

Luv, that's funny that I didn't remember that "Mr. Brown is out of town" line. A man flying out of a teeter-totter sounds familiar, though. Oh, I would so LOVE to go flying through my goals to that 199. I set a goal of 194 for June 24 because I'm sure my weight loss will slow after a while, but I'm hoping to not be the fattest person at the family reunion. You are one of the truly inspirational people here. April is another who has been full of magenta lately. And I know there are others even this past week. (Again I claim the excuse of being tired--it's past 11:30PM and I'm sleepy. Not admitting to my bad memory. LOL) Hey, maybe we should make all the slackers PUSH us in the wagon. LOL

Well, I did it for the first time ever. Met ALL MY GOALS FOR THE WEEK. Had just one blue number but still met that goal because I go for a weekly average on sat fat.

Dinner could have been worse (diet-wise), I guess. Had 4 tiny narrow pieces of pizza (have no idea how to equate it to the options on the log, so I estimated it as 3 Fitday pieces, but I don't know) and a tiny, two inch square piece of chocolate cake. But guess who ended up with half a pizza and half a cake in their fridge? My dad and stepmom don't eat leftovers. Sigh. Stop staring at me, stupid cake.

I gave myself permission to be a slacker today because my head felt like it was full of cotton candy. I did have to get groceries but I got hubby to drive me. But I knew what I needed and was racing around the store, so by gum I'm counting it as 15 minutes of walking.

My mediocre numbers for today:

1) 1,700 calories max/day - 1454, 1417, 1557, 1467, 1771, 1457, 1856
2) walk for 1 hour, lift weights for 1/2 hour every day except work days (I only work 2-3 days a week), but do it on work days too if I feel like it - no but worked, no but worked, walk 1/2 hr/weights 1/2hr, walk 1 hr/weights 1/2 hr, no but worked, random exercise that I figure adds up to an hour of walking/weights 1/2 hour, 15 mins walking
3) eat more protein, get up from 17% - 18% (it's a start!), 21%, 25%, 22%, 23%, 16%, 16%
4) 64oz water minimum - 64oz, 72oz, 64oz, 64oz, 64oz, 64oz, 64oz
5) calorie deficit at least 500 - 1069, 980, 726, 871, 626, 908, 350

Look at all that new red

Man, I'm way too foggy-headed to even skim the posts right now and find out what you're talking about, so that's a heck of a weird question
