    And we are OFF and running only 2 days from our first weigh in (note to self ,,,,remember the bricks ) how do you think you are doing? I'm much to Mary Ann's TOTAL HORROR a daily weigher. New word, looks cute!! Actually I weigh myself several times a day and have been since I was in HS. I was on the gymnastics team and you HAD to weigh in at 115 or more. I was 110 . My coach reminded me several times I needed to gain (Hmmm much rather have that than this,,,no actually that's not true. I have osteoporosis and when your thin it contributes to it even more. Plus I'd of not gotten to know you all!!). I never did gain until in my early 40's after I stopped working because of the car accident. Being given a ton of steroid shots, because I had to stop working I became severely depressed,,,those dang AWFUL meds!! Now a days I FLATLY REFUSE to take any psych meds, Period! I did as can see more than DOUBLE my weight.

    Behaving?!!! That's not the feeling I get from Diane. emoticon

    emoticon Getting off that plateau, dropping some pounds and half inches in your health and fitness class. When you're cracking that whip remember its 8 to 12 reps with each arm. emoticon

    It's January. I don't outrun anything in January. I intend to hide.

    Benny, being a retriever, does not take things TO anywhere. He only brings things BACK. That's because the things we bring BACK are lighter than all the crap we hauled TO that we later learned we didn't need. So we threw away the useless things. and Yes. We did throw them away properly! In a dempsey dumpster. emoticon

    When I say I came back to earth .... let's just say good thing I wasn't piloting the Air Under Dawg plane. I've been okay by sticking to my meal plan (wait .... I don't think apple AND peach pie were on my plan ... but I digress). I stopped tracking after Sunday lunch, and it never got from the white board on the fridge to SP nutrition tracker.

    I had today off and got as far as visiting my Dad. No great outdoors adventures to post pictures of. Day 4 is a new day. A good day to get back to tracking.
