  1. I'm with Kathy Lee on this one. Even though I was brought up in a denomination that viewed it differently. My husband baptized me in the Pacific Ocean last year on our trip to Mexico. (I was originally "baptized" as a baby). Julie
  2. Well, just got off the phone with the clinic. They really don't think it's anything, but of course can't guarentee it. Wanted to just talk to me about it. "hate to have you drive clear over here..." Hello! It's my life, what's a 90 mile drive?! Geez! Why do they make you feel foolish for checking it out? I mean, they're making me feel like I'm a hypochondriac! But you know, for my peace of mind, I really want to know. Sounds like they might just do an ultrasound, but she told me not to take any aspirin for 7 days in case they do a needle biopsy. Again all of you, thanks for giving me a good place to vent! Take care! Blessings, Julie
  3. Oh, update on my situation. I called the clinic here yesterday and spoke with a nurse. I told her I wanted another opinion and wanted something done now as I couldn't stand waiting. She said that is what she would do too. She sent a referral to a breast clinic in Mason City for me. They are supposed to call me today and get me scheduled for an appointment. I feel a lot better now that I've taken a step. Thanks all for the support! It sure does help! Julie
  4. Thanks everyone! julesberry--I have the ab belt and do feel I get a good workout when I use it. It is a bit annoying though. No matter how tight I put it on, it rides up. Could be my shape though, because when I watch the folks on the video, they don't look like it's bugging them! I like the stretchie band the best though. oh--I got Leslie's "Walk Slim" series in the mail yesterday! It is really good--well the 1 mile I did was anyway! I was really pooped! She does some jogging intervals on there. You can just walk though. Nice here today too once the morning showers clear out. Should be soon. Blessings, Julie
  5. Oh! I lost a pound, bringing my weight loss total to 22.8 pounds. Yippee!
  6. Thanks so much for the loving, prayerful support! It means so much! I got the name of another Dr. yesterday and called the office to make the appointment. Unfortunately, the lady I needed to speak with is out of town until Monday. You know, the thing that upsets me the most is that the technician that called me acted like I already knew it because it has been on my last 2 mammograms, plus this one! It has apparently changed a bit and is "very small" and they think I should just wait 6 months and see if it changes! Good Grief! Well, I'm with you guys, I don't want to wait. I want something done now so I can have either peace of mind or get working on a solution. So, I just have to wait until Monday, and then wait until I can get an appointment. This is a lesson in patience I guess. Sigh. Thank you all! Blessings, Julie Oh--Kiwi--I didn't even notice that you spelled my name wrong! Lol! Not a problem! You had all of the right letters--just not in the right order! I've been a total "space case" the last couple of days!
  7. Hi guys, I'm getting ready to go to my Weight Watchers meeting. Wish me skinny vibes! Don't think I lost very much at all, but hopefully a little bit. I kind of need your prayers for myself right now. Had something show up on my mammogram and I'm pretty stressed about it right now. They "think" it's probably benign and say I should wait 6 months for another test to see where it's at. That sounds like hogwash to me. I can't hang on to this for 6 months and then find out. I want to know now. Grrrr.... anyway, I'm just in need of prayers of support. No family history of this and I really am not real up on health stuff--especially my own. Thanks guys, Blessings, Julie
  8. Oh Kathy Lee this is just beautiful news to hear! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Julie
  9. I'm checking in too! Because we had 8" of snow yesterday, Weight Watchers was cancelled, so won't know for another week how my efforts have paid off. Bummer! I joined Leslie Sansone's Walk Club and I also ordered her latest "Walk Slim" series of DVD's. Did a 2 mile Ab routine of hers last night with her ab-belt. Made a great supper last night too that was very delish and good for us! Made parmesan chicken breasts (except I used Asiago cheese) and made zucchini with tomatoes, onions and feta and served it over a bed of long grain and wild rice. Yummy! Hope everyone continues to work hard at this. We can do it! Remember, nothing tastes as good as thin feels! Keep up the good fight everyone! You're all in my prayers! Blessings, Julie
  10. oh, and Muzza--Leslie has a Walk for men too! Actually, a lot of her DVD's have a "token" male on them. My husband sometimes does the workout with me.
  11. Leslie\'s Site Go to her "store". Should be listed in there somewhere. She has different pages for different levels of workouts. Also, you can get her stuff on Ebay. You could probably get Denise's too. Check out Barnes and Noble too--they had numerous DVD's of Leslie's) (actually, I think I saw Denise's at Sheele's Sporting Goods the other day.) Also, Target has 2 compilation's of Leslie's Workouts back in there exercise equipment area. Doesn't have the ball routine, but both have some good stuff. One of them has 5 different workouts (including the great kickboxing one!) and the other has 3 workouts (one of them is a 4 miler!) Heck, I'm almost as big a Leslie fan as I am an Eric one! Lol!
  12. So happy for you Darlene! We're not ready to give you up just yet though--even if you would go "happy". Lol!
  13. Lol, Muzza! Kathy Lee--Leslie's stability ball DVD is titled, "You CAN Do! ABS--a simplified approach. From the back cover: This video has three progressive practice segments, each one designed to take you a step closer to greater results: Using Your Stability Ball, The Core Workout and The Upper-Body Workout. Looks like it's a total of 1 hour and 33 minutes. I haven't done this one in a long time. I deflated my ball when I got married and moved and don't know what I did with the pump. Lol! I also have a Denise Austin ball routine that I used to do that wasn't too bad. I just really didn't have a lot of room back then and kept falling off the ball! Lol! Never heard of a Bosu ball. --Julie
  14. Congrats!! Enjoy!! Spoil!!!! It's your duty!!! Blessings, Julie
  15. Julesberry--it's much more than marching in front of your tv. But, it doesn't take a lot of space. If you don't have a lot of room, you can just stand there and "march". Leslie Sansone, the Walk Away the Pounds" lady, has 4 basic moves. There is the walking in place, the kick, the knee lift and the side step. Google her name, and you'll get to her site and she has some clips of her routines you can watch. I'm totally addicted to Walk Away. I have 13 DVD's and 1 VHS tape of hers. She has 1 mile, 2, 3, 4 and 5 mile workouts. I pretty much stick to the 1 and 2. I never get bored with them. You can also use hand weights, a stretchie band, her ab belt and other things. If you're serious about getting one, I would recommend my favorite--the Express 2-in-1 DVD which has a 1 mile Easy Walk and a 2 mile "Brisk Walk". Barnes and Noble have a fair amount of her tapes. She also has workouts for older adults, kids, and some floor routines--like the ball. Get thee to her website and snoop around in her "store". --Julie
  16. You can have the tomatoes, Jersey, but for sweet corn???! Iowa!!! By-the-way, we'll be growing baby peas and sweet corn for Green Giant this growing season! I'm kind of excited! Most farmers in our area, grow corn and soybeans for ethanol and for stockfeed. Julie
  17. Wow Kathy Lee--that's some loss for the week! The iodine supplement sounds interesting! Good idea to icrease your water. That's something I always resist because of the increasing in the um...well...um, you know! But, it is so good for you. Cool on tearing that bathroom apart! You're on your way now! I got some new workout DVD's while shopping in Mankato, MN yesterday. Just got done doing one. I do Leslie Sansone's "Walk Away the Pounds" workouts. I love them. Have heard people claim that they aren't a tough enough workout, but I beg to differ. You can make things more intense and you can do her longer programs. Anyway, to stick with it, I have to find something I can stand to do over and over. Hers are good enough to keep me interested. Have a good one! Julie
  18. um, Muz?? Your Kiwi has some might strange combos there. Is she trying to tell us that she's preggers? Julie Lol!
  19. good old peanut butter does it for me! But, when I'm trying to be good, I just put tuna between 2 slices of wheat bread. Nothing else. Just the tuna and the bread. Yummy!
  20. That sounds cool! Or, how about a little waterfall?! Lol! I have a 2.6 pound weightloss to report for the week! I am now down 21.6 pounds. (not sure what the measurements are in NZ--sheeps legs? chocolate fish? metric?) I've been walking more outside because our weather has improved. I've been picking up a lot of sticks and small branches. It's going to rain for a few days now though, so maybe Darling Hubby will have some ideas for indoor exercise! Blessings, Julie
  21. Ouch! Never had them, but know lots of people that have! Take care and hope you're on the mend and feeling better fast! Blessings, Julie
  22. Well, my travels would be to do genealogy as I would love to walk where my ancestors did, so I'd like to go to: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario Ireland--flew over it and it looked gorgeous! Germany Scotland
  23. I was always a big EC fan and used to drive the sweet little librarian nuts doing inter-library searches for magazine articles about Eric! Lol! I had a computer for a whole year before I was able to have internet (think rural Iowa--everything was dial-up and horrendous long-distance fees!). The day I got my internet connection, I "googled" Eric Carmen and was taken to the old board where I probably just lurked for one or two days until I learned how to post! Tony was "TonySongWriter" seems like, and some other folks had different names than they do now. I was simply my email address! Anyway, I'm member #20 here.
  24. Thanks guys! I've been in Weight Watchers since September this time around. Last week I was totally out of control on the salt. It's funny, cause, I usually crave sweets. Go figure! I had been losing 1 to 2 pounds every week. Then, we got snow bound in the great Iowa Blizzard and I just went nuts! Lol! I've been eating weird this week, but it really works--1 packet of Quaker weight control oatmeal for breakfast and 1 Weight Watcher yogurt for a mid-morning snack. Lunch has been 1 1/4 cups of Fiber One cereal with honey clusters, 2/3 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. In the afternoon I have a little cup of yogurt then for supper a couple of baked potatoes with veggie slice cheese and taco sauce on them! Weird! But, I love it! I won't do this every day, but it's a good way to get me motivated and lose fast while not starving. Gotta eat more fruits and veggies I know. --Julie
