Gianni - I'm so happy you got to the dentist and got meds and something to kill the pain!
So it was your wisdom tooth and not a cavity?


Did you know I was born without wisdom teeth? No wisecracks please! LOL!

Colleen - I'm sorry you've caught a virus / infection! Take Care, Hugs!


Nora - I'm glad you're back home. I hope they can figure out what's wrong!

Hi all,

For some reason, I thought last week was the last weigh in for this challenge. Plus I have been sick with a virus or sinus infection the last few days, so didn't get anywhere near work where the scale is today.

Hey everyone!

Lisa - That's so sad. I hope that your son gets over it soon. And that jerk goes away.

Missy - WAY TO GO! That's a nice milestone.

Christina Marie - I hope everything is ok.

Larui - I'm sorry to hear about you hurting yourself. Are you feeling better now? Way to go on the grade! That's awesome! you can do it! I'm rooting for you! We all are!

Judi - Ouch. I feel you on the back. Things never hurt while you're doing them it seems like it's always the next day.

Gianni - I hope that the meds help until Wednesday. I still have all of my wisdom teeth but my dentist said if they weren't causing me a problem there was no reason to remove them.

MissG - When I forget my fitbit I feel like my steps didn't count. I know it's silly but that's how I feel. My brother forgot his before he exercised this morning and he said the same thing "Now it doesn't COUNT!" of course he's in a step competition at work so it kind of didn't.

Good morning, everyone~
I can't believe we've completed another challenge. Time always flies by so quickly when we are doing these. I can't wait until the next one is upon us. I might even try tackling being a team leader if I can find the time. I love the challenges and it's about time I stepped up and participated a little more. My brother and a friend of his stayed with me last night. He is in rare form today and is being a little cruel at the moment. Best to just stay out of his way and leave him alone. Fortunately I am not his target. His friend is, and I feel bad for her. I am excited for Heather and Ben and their new business venture. I hope it is a roaring success for them and they are able to make it work for them. It will definitely be a big change for them and I hope that it's just what their town needs. I lost another 4 pounds this week and I am 1.4 pounds from my next big goal. I am getting really excited. I don't know what my reward will be, but I will think of something. Then I am on to my next goal of being under 200 pounds by Christmas. I am really hoping I can do that. That gives me 4 months to lose 25 pounds. It would be awesome to be to my goal weight by Christmas, but I think that's pushing it. I will do whatever is right for my body and it tells me to do. I hope everyone has some success with their final weigh-in and meets their goals. I have really enjoyed working with everyone and I hope to see you on the discussion boards and on the next challenge. Please take care of yourselves and I will be thinking of you all.


Hugs, Lauri

Always remember you are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
smarter than you think,
and loved more than you know!

Hey team..wow today was the last WI .. I really enjoyed this challenge I am sorry I did not work as hard as I should of.. food got in the way big time.. and that is my own accord.. I did keep active though with working out and riding my bike and doing strength work a lot but I am not sure why my food got out of control. well there is some thought to as why and I am now working on that, I am stepping back and taking a hard long look at my self and what I am going to be doing going forward..

Ginna I hope all goes well with your surgery..but it will be all over before you know it that is for sure.. and you will be feeling like your self again.. real fast.

Hope everyone has a great week.. and lets rock this last week of the challenge


Anita

Gianna, getting those wisdom teeth out of there is a really good idea. Not fun, but at least when it's done, it's done.

I misplaced my SPAT this morning and was in serious withdrawal. It's amazing how dependent I've become on that silly step counter. Fortunately, I found it. It was actually right where I put it every night, but had slipped into a dark corner and I didn't spot it. But I have to say that my nightstands and chests of drawers now have decluttered surfaces!

Hi, Guys

My apologies for being MIA this weekend.. Went to the Dentist Friday got prescription for Amoxicillan 875MG and Tylenol #3 with Codeine. I was out of it this weekend . That Tylenol knocks you out. I have to take this for a couple more days. Then an oral surgeon will pull my tooth Wednesday morning. This has been a wild ordeal and I am just gonna get all the wisdom teeth pulled I can't go through this again.

Goal 1-350 7/13/2015
Goal 2-330
Goal 3-300
Goal 4-285

Good luck with the weigh-in tomorrow! I haven't been making very good choices and am expecting another gain. Needless to say, I didn't take full advantage of this challenge :(

Hi everyone!

Hope everyone is having a great Sunday. Today I actually completed my August activity goal - a 20.5 mile bike ride. I was grumpy during the ride but I am glad I finished it.

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Wow, Heather and Ben, that's very exciting!! I wish you both the best of luck!

Lauri and Nora, I hope you are feeling better soon.

I can't believe this challenge is over already. I didn't give it nearly as much attention as I would have liked to but am thrilled to say that I still lost 10 pounds during this challenge!!

Congrats to everyone for hanging in there until end!!

Heather and Ben, I am so excited for you! Congratulations!!!

Lauri, I am so glad you got checked out and they figured out what the problem was. You should probably get a little bit of candy to keep in your purse, or some glucose tablets or one of the little liquid glucose bottles, so that if you ever start feeling like that again, you have a little bit of sugar you can eat right away to see if that helps. Congrats on the 98% in your class!


I guess I'm on the (slightly) wounded list today...My back was sore on Thursday and Friday, but it felt better yesterday so when my husband wanted me to help him move the pool table, I didn't think anything of it. Now I can't even bend over and it feels like one side of my lower back is on fire. I bought some of those icy hot patches to put on it. It felt bad enough last night that I thought about going to urgent care, but today is my daughter's birthday and I had to make her ice cream cake and get the house ready for her party. I'm about to bake cupcakes for her (chocolate with cream cheese frosting), then slice up some watermelon and some strawberries, then go to the Dollar Tree and buy 9 balloons (since it's her 9th birthday). Then I will see how my back is. I have a doctor's appointment this week, hopefully my back will wait until then.

Good morning, team! I just finished blogging about the big news that Ben and I have been keeping under our hats. You can go read about it here if you're interested. www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
ur
nal.asp?id=SCARLETTHEATHER


We are super excited and nervous!

We were going to take my mom out to lunch yesterday and show her the building that our new business is going to be located in. But she started feeling really bad right after we ordered, and I had to take her back to the nursing home. I'm actually kind of worried about her because we were at her very favorite restaurant, so she had to be feeling REALLY bad to skip it.

Anna, I'm really sorry to hear about your dad, but glad that your mom is getting the help she needs.

Lauri, I wouldn't worry about Lonnie's mom or Lonnie anymore. You are done with that, so just don't look back. Dusty is absolutely right! Also, make sure you get checked out - take care of yourself, girl! I hope your mom feels better, too.

Lisa, sometimes people suck. I'm sorry that happened to your son. You must have better control that I do, because I think my head may have exploded in that situation!

Judi, I totally understand the drama our mothers can put us through. I just keep adding stuff to my list of "stuff I will never, ever do to my kids." I actually have a lot of resentment towards my mom sometimes. It's a constant work in progress to balance my responsibilities to her and my responsibilities to me and my family - it has gotten much better since she has been placed in a nursing home.

Michelle, great job staying on track while you're on vacation!

Lynnaslee, I agree. I am totally an emotional eater.

Nora, I hope you're feeling better soon!

Ashbug, I was thinking of homemade gifts for Christmas this year. However, in light of our recent developments, I think my time may be limited! Go ahead and tackle that new machine. I bet you'll be surprised how quickly you figure it out (and color me totally jealous of a new sewing machine. Mine is LIMPING along)

Patty, glad to hear your sister is doing well.

Missy, congratulations on getting 40 pounds off!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Lisa--I'm sorry you're neighbor man is so ignorant and cruel. Your son shouldn't have to go through that. I don't know why some people are so hurtful. I think they are scared of what they don't know. Isn't that terrible, a grown man scared of a young boy? His parents certainly should have taught him better! I hope he gets kicked out of where you live, It would serve him right and make your son more comfortable. Some people are just cruel.

Nora- I hope you get to feeling better. I hate hearing your in the hospital. I hope they take good care of you and can clear up whatever is wrong with you. My prayers are with you.

Angie-I'm sorry about the weight. I'm glad you got to take Rachel to the children's museum. I did that with one of my Goddaughters and we had a blast. She wants me to take her back again. She's such a little munchkin!!

I ended up in the Emergency Room yesterday per the on-call doctor's orders., They ran an EKG, gave me fluids in an IV, a shot of morphine for my headache and also did a CT scan of my head since I had hit my jaw when I fell out of bed. All tests came back clear except for my blood sugar was low. They think I might have been hypoglycemic and not eating enough and that is why I was unsteady on my feet along with a mild concussion from falling out of bed., My instructions were to eat and take it easy and sleep since they had given me morphine. We stopped and picked up McDonalds on the way home and I had a double cheeseburger and a peach pie and then laid on the couch and watched the movie Frozen. My friend Nancy was here and my mom actually went to the hospital with me. I was shocked!! Nancy drove our van and Mom took her power chair. I am feeling better today and the doctor thinks I need to be eating better. He says I've worked so hard to take the weight off, not to screw with my health now. He is right. I have a huge bruise in the middle of my chest where I hit it on the corner of the nightstand when I fell out of bed. It hurts like a son of a gun.

I got some good news. I got my final grade in my class I finished on Friday and I passed with a 98.09%. Definitely making honor roll! Keeping my grades up there are so important to me and I really want to do my best and graduate at the top of the class. I think I'm in line to do it.
History is my next 2 courses which is hard for me, so if I can get through them, then I should do well the rest of the time. Thank you everyone for listening to my ramblings and standing by me the past couple of days when everything has been so crazy. I try hard to be a positive person and I definitely have not been the past few days. For that I apologize. I have been stretched to my limit and feel like a tense wire ready to break. I'm calming down now and taking a better look at things and trying to let go. It's all I can do., Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and I will do my best to dig myself out of this hole. Thanks!!!

Hugs, Lauri

Always remember you are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
smarter than you think,
and loved more than you know!

Anna, I don't think we are ever actually ready. And I'm not sure if a long time to prepare is really all that helpful. What you are going through is very hard.

Nora, I hope you are okay!

And Lauri, I hope you are okay, too! We have quite the injury list this week.

I did really well all week and then yesterday was just crazed with hunger. I ate way too much. But I'm not letting it follow me into today!

A PEDICURE IS A GREAT IDEA--A REWARD WITHOUT AN OUNCE OF FOOD INVOLVED! IT MAKES YOU FEEL SO PAMPERED!

MY ARM AND SHOULDER ARE MUCH BETTER TODAY BUT I'M STILL GOING TO TAKE IT EASY. I REMEMBER LAST TIME I HAD IMPROVEMENT AND TRIED TO DO TOO MUCH! I LEARNED MY LESSON.

GOING TO THE FAIR TONIGHT TO PICK UP MY ENTRIES AND SEE IF I WON ANY RIBBONS. MY HUSBAND TOOK MY ENTRIES IN THURSDAY BECAUSE I COULDN'T EVEN MOVE. ISN'T HE A SAINT? REMINDS ME TO THANK HIM!

Howdy, all!

Sorry I haven't been around much. I've got a bit of a big project going on these days.

I had written a long post about Lisa's neighbor, but the site won't let me post profanities, and deleted it!

At any rate, I hope that whatever trials you all face, that all goes well and works out for the best.

Good night, all!

Nora - Hope you are better soon.
Lauri - Did you get checked out by the doctor? That sounds concerning.


We had a fun day today... went to Brookings (45 miles away) to a children's museum. It was really cool and Rachel had a blast!

Good evening all. Had a busy day went to a soccer game for my third son and he needs a lot of work but at least he had fun. Hope everyone had a great day and continues to move to lose those pounds.

Well, my body fought me tooth and nail over the last 3 weeks but I finally reached 40 lbs lost!!! Now, on to 50!! Can't wait for that one :)

Have a great weekend!!

Thanks everyone. My son is afraid to go outside in case the man hurts him . That is so sad. He will get over it though no worries.

Lauri it would be very hard for a mom to take your side against her son. I would think she probably does believe you but what can she do.

Hey Everyone,

I'm feeling much better now and it's been beautiful here the last two days. unfortunately, it's a return of summer weather starting tomorrow but I've been enjoying the nice days. I'm feeling much better too.

Angie - I'm sorry to hear about your daycare person and about your gain. I know it's discouraging but we're all here for you.

Gianni - I hope that you got to the dentist and are feeling better now.

Anna - I'm so sorry to hear about your father.

Gayle - I hope you're feeling better.

Larui - I am so sorry that Lonnie's mom is now causing drama for you too. It's hard letting go of someone you love even if you know it's not right. I'm sorry that he's being such a jerk about it. I hope both you and your mom get better soon. Don't feel bad about dumping that's what we're here for! *hug*

Lisa - I cannot believe how vile some people can be. At least you have it on record so if he keeps harassing maybe they'll have to do something about it.

Lynn - I hope your shoulder feels better soon.

Nora - I didn't know you were in the hospital. I hope whatever brings you there gets sorted soon and you are well.

Patty - I'm glad your sister is doing better.

I'm sorry if I missed anyone! My computer access has been sporadic lately (on top of not feeling well) and this group is really active!

Happy Weekend everyone!

Hi everyone. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers for my sister. She is much better and on the mend. Im back at work since school is starting on Tuesday. Each school year is harder than the last and I question whether it's worth it to be in this field. It's not the kids it's the bureaucracy involved.

On another topic I'm going to get some exercise in this evening. Hope you each have a great weekend.

Patty

Lauri, did they start you on any new meds when you went yesterday? Are you diabetic or on blood pressure meds? Walking into walls, slurred speech and tripping over your feet doesn't sound like a good thing at all. Do you have someone there with you in case things get worse suddenly?

Thank you all for your support. It has meant so much and really has helped me pull through this week along with the support of my friends. My true friends get what I am going through and are there 100%. None of them ever liked Lonnie and are now backing me up. Sometimes that is hard because I really did love him, but he is killing that love and destroying anything positive we ever had. I sent a kind response to his mom and haven't heard back from her. Maybe she believed me after all or she just doesn't know what to say. Lonnie has been caught in lies before so this is nothing new.
I am a little concerned this morning. First I went to the doctor for neck and shoulder pain yesterday and my back being out and then I fell out of bed last night and hit my chest on the corner of the nightstand and I have been unsteady on my feet all day and walking into walls and tripping over my own feet. I am hoping it is not a flare up of the meningitis. I don't want to end up back in the hospital. I feel OK other than a little weak and my speech is kind of slurred and slow. I am waiting for a call back from the on-call doctor to see what they have to say. I am hoping this is all just a reaction to stress and nothing else. I'm taking my mom to the doctor on Monday. She is still sick in bed and having all kinds of trouble throwing up and either diarrhea or constipation. She has been down for over 6 months now and she thinks that this is no big deal. This is no way to live and it's making me crazy. Plus she doesn't realize the pressure she is putting on me having to do everything for her. Her birthday is Monday and I just want her to feel better.
I'm sorry everyone. I feel like all I do is come on here and whine. I don't mean to do that, but I have so much on my plate right now and no where to turn. I spend most of my free time here, so that's where I end up dumping my feelings. Please forgive me and do not hate me. The positive me will be back soon!!

Hugs, Lauri

Always remember you are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
smarter than you think,
and loved more than you know!

So glad it is Saturday! Hello everyone emoticon Hopefully everyone has something nice planned for the weekend. I am happy to say that I have survived the week on my new shift but the scale is paying for it. Day shift is no friend of mine so next week it will be time to revamp things a bit.

I've been in the hospital since yesterday and don't know when I'm getting out. I hope today or at the very least tomorrow for the weigh in on Monday but I don't know if I'll be able to meet the posting guidelines.
