    I am short for my weight too. I need to grow about 12 inches I think. I just got home from picking up a design wall. A friend from my guild was upgrading to a larger one and gave me her old one. I have been wanting one for months and just never had money at the same time that I had time to put one up. It is the exact size I was planning on building. The price was perfect...free.
    I need to look thru my stash for some fabric for Airwick.
    Lent starts Wednesday so I am going to try to eat healthy for Lent. Cut out the sweets, and the white food.

    It was a Maximized Living Seminar. I only weigh weekly. Weighing too often messes with my head. Besides we are more than a # on the scale . I am doing a happy dance the scale is moving the right direction, finally. Still alittle sluggish from the sugar withdrawal but I know that goes a way pretty soon. I did a 12 step program 2 different times i did no sugar for a year and lost 70#, gained it back and did it for another 21/2 years and lost #90. Had some traumatic events 'Oh I'll just have a little" back up the scale I went... I am making lasting changes and not legalistic/stress or afraid to make a mistake.. Keep on keeping on

    Sigh...ever feel like you just want to lie down on the floor and just let the world walk around you for awhile? This weekend was a rollercoaster ride. On Friday when snow was coming down like crazy(we ended up with almost 2' when it was done) we had a medical emergency with one of our hounds, Xandy Bear. Our regular vet didn't know what was causing the problem and didn't have an ultrasound so told Glenn to get her to Oradell Animal Hospital right away and he would call to let them know they were on the way. I left work and "rushed" to meet him. With the snow falling a half hour trip took an hour and 45 minutes. By the time she was looked at there her episode had stopped. I don't know what the deal is but each time we have a big storm, Irene, last year's freak October snow storm and now Nemo something bad and fairly expensive happens to one of the hounds. Last year in October Huggie Bear, my avatar, hurt her back and was very wobbly in the back end-ended up living in the kitchen for several months but she recovered nearly 100%. Last year about this time Xandy Bear was diagnosed as diabetic and now gets insulin twice a day and lost her sight when Sandy hit. So now the snowstorm and this weird wheezing episode. It wasn't reverse sneezing-I swear it looked more like an asthma attack or something. Anyway, we'll be doing more testing to see if we can identify the trigger. So, I really haven't been focused on me again this month so far and we're almost to the halfway mark. Hope all of you are doing better.

    Blonde- how is your baby doing? Hope all is getting better.

    Jodie - thanks for sharing. I may have to see who is in my area.

    Well the blood sugars are all over ranging from 60's to 300's in the same day. Atleast I am getting some in the normal range during the day. Just need to keep the highs away.

    have a great day

    Xandy Bear is at Oradell Animal Hospital sedated and intubated. She is stable and the docs will try to figure out why she is having problems breathing so hopefully we will at least know what we're dealing with today. We are accepting all good thoughts and prayers that we make good decisions for her.

    Well, I leave in 30 minutes for a spine injection. Maybe if the pain goes away (think Positive) I will be able to exercise besides "Sit and Be Fit." Have not even walked in the mall since Sept.

    I am still not getting email notifications when responses are posted. what am I doing wrong?

    Wow, just realized it Tuesday. Time to get on with Taboo/Teriffic Tuesday. Sorry I forgot before now. I had posted questions 1 through 3 for everyone and then you were to decide if it was Taboo or Teriffic for you. Here goes 3 through 7 - same decision.
    4. True or False: Skipping breakfast is a good way to shave calories off your daily total
    5. Which "grab and go" snack packs the most calories? a Kit Kat (4 bars), b bottled Green Machine Smoothie (15.2 oz) c Jamba Juice Strawberry Whirl Smoothie (16 oz)
    6. True or False: Dieters should get up early to hit the gym - even if it means skimping on sleep
    7. True or False: When trying to shed pounds, it better to eat too few calories than too many.

    4 False. Eating regular meals helps keep your fat burning metabolism stoked and cravings under control. Need proof? The national weight control registry - a research project that tracks 10,000 people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept them off - found that about 80% of successful dieters eat breakfast every day.
    5. A bottled Green Machine smoothie. Surprised? A Kit Kat has 210 calories but one bottle of Naked's Green machine contains the equivalent of almost 3 apples, half a banana, a third of a kiwi and a third of a mango - adding up to 280 calories. Fruit is healthy, but that's more than you would ever eat in one sitting. The Jamba juice has 220 calories. The lesson: pay attention to calories per serving even in nutritious foods
    6. False. If you have to choose between exercising and getting fewer than 6 hours of shut-eye, you may want to skip the gym. Reams of research have shown that lack of sleep causes imbalances in hunger hormones that may lead to weight gain and obesity. Instead of cutting your rest short, sneak in smaller periods of exercise throughout the day by doing quick sets of strength moves like push ups and crunches before and after work and taking a brisk walk during lunch.
    7. False. Eating too little can actually slow your metabolism.
    Thanks to Biggest Loser dietitian Rachel Beller, RD for this quiz.
    There's a teriffic Tuesday in there for me. How about you?

    Blonde hope your baby is OK. I went to my quilt guild meeting tonight. It was nice. I have way too many projects to finish and not enough time. I need a quilt quilted and bound by March 6th. It is my Mystery Train quilt from on here. I am donating it to the school carnival. I also have a donation quilt that i need to layer, back and quilt soon for a raffle for a friend awaiting a kidney transplant. Plus I need to make a baby quilt for my new grandson and am supposed to be working on one for my nephew. (he is paying me) I found someone in my guild who is needing some practice quilts to work on with her new longarm. She is going to do my 2 quilts for free since she says they are practice quilts. I will of course pay her for her time etc. Whew that is a small load off of my mind:-)
    Our guild challenge for the year is a mystery quilt. We got the first clue tonight. I am going to make it a Quilts of Valor quilt. I hope I have enough red fabric, I am trying to buy very little fabric. There isn't a lot of red in my stash.

    Wow do I ever feel out of the loop! Just got home from at 19 day adventure - RV trip from St Augustine Fl to Tempe AZ still yawning! Went to bed last night about 9pm. Sooo good to be back in my for real bed.

    Can't believe it, weighed in this morning and didn't gain but didn't lose either. Had some wonderful REAL tacos in Tempee. So all those good meals in the RV paid off.

    Now, to catch up: I can't find the info for Airwick - can someone lead me to the post please. I have more fabric and supplies than any one person should.

    Blondi - I pray your little one is well. Cindy R that diabetes! ouch you are on my prayer list too - I hope you can find the correct balance of medicine and diet to allow you to feel better and lose the weight you want.

    I'm sure I have missed others on this site who have concerns and I will try and catch up. With being on a weight loss program for four months my big monthly losses are probably over but I do find such encouragement from all of you. So a big thank you to each of you on our quest! I'll probably never win the material prize but know I will win my personal loss prize and that works for me. It's just so nice to be on this journey with other like minded friends.

    Looking forward to hearing from y'all and jumping in now and them - taking each day one and a time - Peace, Linda

    Daisy no information on how to get ahold of Airwick are posted anywhere. She sent me a personal email with her address. i will send you a PM with her contact information.

    As of right now she has not let me know if she has received her winnings for last month. It should have been delivered on last saturday.

    Sounds like you had a good trip. Glad you didn't gain any weight. I am still gaining. UGH I am working on the balance now.

    Well wishes, and prayers for those sick or having treatments. My computer died the other day, and my husband had to find me another. Went yesterday for my Rhuematologist visit, and had 11 vials of blood taken to be tested. One good thing though was they weighed me, and I am so happy to report since I weighed on the first, I have lost 13 pounds. I hope I can keep it up, and just stay on track slowly.

    I am happy to hear what everyone has been doing. I know I don't know many of you, but I enjoy hearing and getting to know you.

    MY sewing had been halted, because of health issues, but back to sewing some tonight I hope.

    Cindy, my husband is on insulin, and his goes all over the place. It can be a full time job just dealing with that.

    Went to a new doctor today for the female check up and to see about getting my hormones back in check with the bioidentical stuff. We'll see! BUT... she had a brochure on Bella Nutra nutrition program. Anyone ever tried it or heard of it for weight loss and lifestyle change for eating?? They are suppose to call me in a day or two to fill me in on the details.

    well, I know I'm losing something, just haven't had time in past few days to even check. Last check showed another loss though.
    Today I realized I have to change around some of my foods bc my tummy is getting irritated.
    Just when I am making some progress!
    I'll forge on though, bc I am serious about not sliding back to the mind bending fatigue I was having before.
    I just have to make sure and eat enough salt. (I drink tons of water!)
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    Happy Valentines Day..........watch the sugar you may take in today. I love those little candy hearts and usually buy me a bag. I have resisted every time I have gone to the store. One person at work has them in a candy dish on his desk, I have gotten a few but am trying to stay completely away from them.

    Yes I know with the diabetes and sugars all over the place I dont need them.

    Time to finish getting ready for work, get my food together for the day. Which is a challenge for me this week as I didn't do a good job planning for the week. I am off tomorrow and monday so for the next 2 weeks will do better planning.

    Have a wonderful day.

    "Blonde hope your baby is OK."

    Day before yesterday we had to make the decision to let our sweet Xandy Bear go. She had developed a degenerative disease, laryngeal paralysis, and her vocal chords would no longer open and shut properly so that she could breathe efficiently without being intubated. Surgical options had a poor outlook and since she was 10 & 1/2, diabetic and blind we decided that it would be wrong to put her through a surgical procedure that would most likely fail. Right now we're reeling from the suddeness of losing her but life goes on and God willing we will meet again one day. I'm attaching a picture of her in her finery as Queen of the Michigan Basset Rescue Waddle. In her time she raised thousands of dollars for basset hound rescue.

    My heart goes out to you. I know what it is like to lose your best friend. Dogs give us such unconditional love and ask for little in return.

    Blondslave, I am so sorry for your loss! It is really hard to lose a furry family member.


    Happy Valentines day everyone!! Be careful with the chocolate and candies. I guess I am "lucky" in that my DH has never brought me chocolates or candy for valentines day so I won't have too much temptation around me!

    I have a new Bible study starting up here in 15 min at my home. I decided to make a Oatmeal, Honey Raisen bread, with half whole wheat flour to serve as a snack instead of some really sweet suggary thing that I should not eat!


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!
