Gee, I didn't realize there were so many responses after my last one. That's shocking. Apparently it got further down on the list than what I was checking. So I feel bad that all you said some really nice things and it was almost like I ignored them, but I didn't. I didn't see them. You all are inspiring to me. We'll just inspire each other. How bout that? You all have a great New Years and below to make up for not responding to any of you, I put a response to each one of you. Thanks for thinking of me.
CatLady - You can butt in anytime you want to. No matter how much I think about it or how much I can't believe I did it, I just start laughing about it. I'm still in shock about it.
Jenfri76 - You get on back on track. You're doing awesome too. You can do it. You are posting too much and trying too hard to not do this. You can and will succeed at this. Hang in there and keep at it.
Eternity - Thank you Eternity. You're a great person to get to know and a great person to be in touch with. Your funny, your witty, and I think you're going to make one spunky skinny gal once you're all finished. Now that you've broken your plateau, you're going to be heading on down the road. That's awesome.
Sharlay81 - Oh, thank you so much Sharlay. You should be so very proud of yourself too. Your change is drastic. You're looking great!
CuzzzandU - Thank you Cuzz. It's really tough to think that this journey could be years long. I'm losing fast right now, but that's only going to last a short time. I may have hit a plateau, I'm not sure. My not consistent anymore like I was because the Holidays and New Years has kinda messed me up a little up. We'll have to wait and see. You keep up the good work and don't give up. Giving up only delays your results. You're doing great!
Flaskunk - My clothes are looser, but there's also quite of bit of different sized clothes. I work in a professional environment, I can dress casually, but I still have to look fairly nice. I am no longer wearing a lot of the shirts that I had been wearing, because they just look too baggy and horrible. Some of them look okay big. Some of them were tight to begin with and I never should have worn them, but I'm wearing them now. Others are new, because I'm running out of things to wear. All the pants and jeans are new because the old ones will fall off and even if I wear a belt they are too bunched up and I can't wear to work.
Still for Flaskunk - They don't have the problem that I had. My problem was portion control, not necesssarily what I would eat. Plus, I was not active most of the time. If I wanted to go out and do something, I was able to, but I just chose not too. I chose to take hte elevetor when I was perfectly capable of taking the stairs. Now, I can't stand the elevator, I have to take the stairs. I went all the way up to the 6th floor in a building downtown and I wanted to take the stairs, and didn't even break a sweat. Before I would break a sweat by the 2nd floor. I can see huge results other than what I'm wearing and how I look. My kids are all very active. My oldest (5 years) plays soccer, and will only eat things that are plain. For example, he drink milk, but does not like chocolate in it. He does not like the extra stuff on his foods like a lot of people do. He's very picky like that and he eat very small portions. He's very thin, but healthy. My middle son (1 year) will be our problem if we have to have one that carries on the legacy. lol. We have already started working on him. When he wants chips, we will give it to him, but we will also offer carrots as an alternative, or something to that affect. He usually takes the alternative. We also want it to appear to be his choice, not ours. We want him to make the right decisions when we're not available to make them for him when he gets older. What is your opinion about it? Just FYI, we are smack in the middle of Oklahoma and all the governor has issued a state of emergency for the entire state. There have been enormous fires everyday, but luckily there are firefighters here from other states (especially Georgia) that is helping out here. We just need some rain or snow or something. This is just so strange for us to be dealing with. California is used to it, but rather, we're dealing with it and they're dealing with flooding right now. Things are strange right now, huh?
Dumbfox - Thanks Fox. That picture was actually taken because my wife wanted to send one to my mom to show her how I screwed up my hair. lol. It has grown on her now, but it was a shock when I walked in the door.
Youcandoit - That's awesome. You're right, this Phen is da bomb. Keep up the good work. If you can maintain your weight after two pregnancies, then you are certainly doing the right thing.
Fazolis - That's pretty cool. Thanks. I have yet to figure out how to make smilies other than the basic smile and the wink. lol. Anything further than that, requires a little additional training. lol. I've never had a smiley remind anyone of me though. That's very nice.
Bigbonedgirl - Thank you BBG, you're doing a fantastic job too. Hang with it and keep going all the way! You just have a short distance left.
