  1. My darling husband gave me a Journey diamond necklace cross in white gold. Just gorgeous! I wanted an eliptical machine. My mom said, "Julie, when your husband wants to buy you diamonds, just say 'Thank You!'" Lol!
  2. I got those 4 by some miracle. It was the 5th one I missed. What was it? Anybody know? Julie
  3. hmmmm.....I've logged out and back in again several times and I still can't get them! Not sure what else to try! Jules
  4. oh, and I'm drinking some Irish Creme over ice right now! Really yummy!
  5. roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, creamed corn, relish tray and pies from Village Inn--triple berry, pecan, key lime and a pumpkin pie I made that was low in calories. Yummy!
  6. I just got home and dashed to my computer to see what Santa had left. I got to hear 4 songs and then I lost my connection. When I got it back, I got the regular "home page" and can't seem to find the packages. It's still Christmas! I swear, I've been a really good girl! Are they really gone already?? Julie
  7. Hey! I lost 2 more pounds this week! I met my goal of 7 pounds by January 1st! Heck, I hit 7.2 pounds and I still have time to go. Let's make it 10 pounds by Jan. 1st. I'm really pumped now!!! Hubby likes feeling my ribs! Lol! Says I'm really curvy now! Lol! Have a good one! Blessings, Julie
  8. Ah, joy! I lost 2.6 pounds this week! Now, I have lost all that I had gained back plus 1 pound! My biggest challenge? A lady brought in several trays of enormous cinnamon rolls to work yesterday!! The breakroom is right next to my office! I had people practically begging me to eat one! (how rude!!!) I stuck with it though and ate my healthy meals and did a good workout when I got home! Yippee! Jules
  9. What a wonderful soul you have, my friend, Muzza! God is using you in a powerful way! Working in a nursing home, I too get some opportunities to share through prayer. A lot of times it is to staff! You know, a couple of years ago, one of our residents had a very strong faith. (She was actually the fiance of my father-in-law). She was suffering so with cancer, but her faith really gave her hope. The morning she passed on, she kept looking up in the corner of her room. The nurse on duty asked her why and she said that Jesus was there waiting for her! Unfortunately, I was out of the building when she passed, but came back shortly after and the nurse told me this before my husband and I walked in the room. There she lay in the bed, a smile on her face, turned to the corner, up by the ceiling, eyes wide open. What a beautiful and reassuring site that was!! She was home! Peace and Blessings, Julie
  10. My prayers go out to all affected by the shootings today at Westroads Mall in Omaha. This is so surreal for me. We were just there and did our Christmas shopping. I practically spent every Saturday of my teenage years there. I have bought most of my Eric albums/tapes there over the years. Called my mom as soon as I heard the news as she is always running off to the mall. She answered the phone by saying, "We went to the Mall of the Bluffs today, not the Westroads." Whew! Julie
  11. Muzza, Muzza, Muzza! What are we gonna do with you??! I weigh myself every day. Sometimes it drives me crazy as it can really fluctuate, but it really is a good way to keep on top of things. Jules

    Sick People

    I work in a nursing home. We only get a paid sick day on the 2nd day of the illness and only if we go to the doctor and get an excuse. The pay isn't that great, so everybody comes to work sick. So frustrating. A sicky came in my office the other day and used my phone and then proceeded to cough and sneeze all over my favorite pen that she picked up. I told her to keep it and as soon as she left the room, I got out the Lysol and cleaned my phone, desk, door, etc.... Yuck!
  13. Thanks you guys! It is really a chore to get your mind into the groove of losing weight. I guess it's just something that you have to obsess about or have a solid reason to keep you on course. If we could bottle will-power, we'd be rich!! Hang in there! I think if you make it through the holidays by staying the same, or gaining just few pounds, than things are going to be fine! Jules
  14. How are we doing this week gang? A lot of stress out there this time of year--that makes it really easy to mindlessly graze! I was down 2.6 pounds this week. My leader hugged me. She thought it was amazing that I could lose that much over Thanksgiving week! I've made a goal to lose 7 pounds by Jan. 1st. This week, I've been exercising more. I'm not starving to death afterwards like I was earlier this year after a workout. This is good! Hang in there everyone! We can do this! Blessings, Julie
  15. The bandaids used to come in those nice tin boxes too. Still have a few.
  16. At least it's not a gain! And, yep, some exercise and eating less would be a great start! I made a turtle pumpkin pie that I got on the Weight Watcher's site. It was delish--although it was very messy/sloppy looking. I did have a slice of mom's homemade pumpkin pie though and it was awesome--I steered clear of her pecan pie. We ate at Applebee's last night and had the Weight Watcher's French onion soup and the cajun-lime talapia. Yummy! I wasn't able to go to weigh-in this week so not sure how I did for sure. Do know I lost some though! Take care all! Blessings, Julie Oh--Reid--sounds like you're doing great!
  17. 20 lashes with a wet noodle, Muzza! Do you have to go some place special to get weighed?? In your pictures, you really don't look that big! I lost 2.2 pounds at weigh-in last night. It should have been a little more. My fingers were swollen and couldn't get my ring off so know I am retaining some fluid. Kathy Lee--hopefully things will get straightened out for you. You have so much going on in your life! Everything needs to fall back into a rhythm and with your health issues, I imagine it takes a bit longer. Hang in there! Blessings, Julie
  18. Well, Muzza, how was your weigh-in? We need to keep this thread more active to encourage each other! Think I'm having another good week. Switching food journals with someone else at Weight Watchers has been the most helpful thing I've ever tried! You can really behave if someone else is reading your journal! I've been exercising more too. I did a 2-mile "Walk Away the Pounds" DVD last night--major victory for me! Usually, when I get to the end of the 1st mile, she says, "Ok, if you're just doing 1 mile with us today, that's fine....but if you're doing 2, keep up with us!" Well, that usually makes me feel like I have permission to stop! But, last night, I kept going and am so glad I did! Hang in there friends! We have the holidays coming up! If we get a good handle on our eating/exercising now, we will breeze through the holidays happy and healthy and with a jump start on all the dieters who start on January 1st! We can do it! We are soooooo worth it!!! Blessings, Julie
  19. Tremontaine--(don't know if I spelled that right) it's by Foreignor. Love it! Also, ELO had one I liked but I can never think of the name of it and am too lazy to Google it! Lol! I like Herb and the TB too! Grew up listening to that. My mom had this racey album of theirs with a naked chick on the front covered in whipped cream. Oh my! (actually, I think we've discussed that very album cover on this website some time ago??) Julie
  20. Oh James! That's funny because my husband's name is James too! Seriously, we've done "it" 6 times since Saturday and I ended up losing 4.2 pounds this week! It works!!! Lol! Julie
  21. I adore "Red Rubber Ball". Just a fun song. Heard it on the radio in the car one day with hubby and I sang every word. He was like, "You know every word of that song and it's the first time I've ever heard it!" He's a little younger than me! RIP.....
  22. I weigh and measure everything. I have a cute little scale that does onces and grams and I have all kinds of measuring cups and spoons. I find this is the best way to keep me honest about my portions. I also try to eat really slow. I've been upping my exercise. Hubby is really happy because I can earn activity points doing "marital exercises!" Try it! You'll like it! Blessings, Julie
  23. How are my "slimmers" doing today? I had a rather stressful day yesterday, and only went over by 4 Weight Watchers points! That's a really big victory for me! We get 35 "flex points" per week for little splurges, so I just tapped into that. Spaghetti and toast? Interesting. I made spaghetti Thursday night with that new Ronzoni thin spaghetti. It's a white pasta but they've added a lot of fiber to it. It's really good--I can't tell the difference and it's a point less per serving! WoooHoooo! Blessings, Julie
  24. Kathy Lee--great news. You're on the mend! It may take awhile, but you'll get there! Muzza--congrats on getting back to your "before trip" weight. That's great! I would imagine that Kiwi will let you buy a few new items for summer. Don't know that you're ready for "Speedos" just yet though...... As for me, I've lost 6 of the 10 pounds I put back on so I'm well on my way! At Weight Watchers the other night, she gave us all food journals and we're to write down all of our food intake and track our exercise. Then, we'll take the journals back next week, and trade with someone! Boy, that's really motivating me to stay on track! I'm really fighting the urge to stress-eat right now. My boss is being a total "B" to a co-worker and it's driving me nuts! I swear this woman just likes to stir things up! Blessings, Julie
  25. Hope it's the best one yet!! Blessings, Julie
