Fabulous! see what support and love can help you accomplish. Much easier to focus on your needs when others are less selfish around you.

Wonderful news that you are doing well, even if you had not lost any weight.
How is the roommate? the neighborhood? anywhere to walk? parks or fun places?

me, I am down one lb but I just wasn't eating... I will cheeer if it is still down next week.

rain here, lots of odd weather... so nothing new..lol

Have a GREAT day MY favorite Buckeyes.

Amy,

I have NEVER had it so good in my life. I want for nothing here. I am not stressed anymore or anything. Mike worries about my calorie intake for a day and it is really sweet of him too. I will be in touch again soon. NOT on the computer everyday anymore I have other things I do....wordfinds and reading until other things get here.

Hgus to the team.

Mike was REALLY happy to see me and Tommie on Wednesday. Things with the cats are good.

We are going out tomorrow night with our rommate after he gets off work.

It has been raining here. I listened to it thunder yesterday.

WE get along great and I want for nothing. We fit each other perfectly. Gary did file for divorce before I left. So here I am enjoying life on the quiet side of things with the cat. I will be in touch soon

I am trying to think of something with the schedule going on here for a get together this summer.

As of Saturday night, he was still bragging about me.

I am not me this month. The 22 is a very bad day for me. But a good day too. It is confusing. Just please bear with me. I will be back to normal soon.

What a wonderful story. It can be very rewarding to have others notice the changes you have created in your life.

Eveyone should check out the new gals thread. She suggested getting together and we are trying to make a plan for the end of the month!

Thursday my best friend finally came over and I almost floored him by the change in me. As a matter of fact, I talked to him today and he said that the shock had not worn off yet. I cannot believe that one.

Saturday I went to my meeting going to another one in a few minutes. And I spent a lot of time outside with the guys before the meeting talking and stuff then doing the usual walking around that I do on Saturday.

Sunday was lazy. As usual. I hate my sundays.

I did find out saturday that i lost 80 pounds so far. That is in 8.75 months too. That averages almost 10 pounds a month. WOW.

Gotta get ready to go...be back again.

Thank you from me also Lulu I have not been with it lately. Too much fighting here.

Then my day today was thrown off because someone hit a telephone pole in my area at 9:30 this morning and (get this you guys) knocked out my internet and phone....BUT NOT the cable. Go figure...the day I really needed the internet too. Oh well there is always Monday for the research I guess. DRAT!!! The sooner it gets done the better too.

LuLu- feel free to post to any board you like but I am sticking to my local ones.
The Cleveland board has almost 7,000 members and the March thread had over 300 hits.
No wonder you don't have time for this site. That is like work keeping up with all the conversations and personalities.

Thanks for the kind words to Wendy and I. We appreciate it after being so down with our guys depressed about money & work.

Hope everyone keeps their spirits up with all this dull dull rain.

Wendy & Amy - Sorry to be MIA but I spend so much time on the Cleveland boards that others just take a back seat. I urge both of you to join us. Stop by Speak Your Mind - April. We have some awesome people and fabulous motivators. One is a nurse practitioner and gives up all the education we can use. so just jump on in. New people and comments are always welcome.

As for the two of you. Congrats to both of your husbands. In this day and age jobs are so hard to come by. I will hope for the best for both of them.
As for your progress emoticon . Keep looking forward and do not dwell on the past. Each day is a new day that brings promise.

So ladies and anyone else reading this post join us on the Cleveland Team. WE will always be Lake County
folk who will stick together no matter what the weather.

So see you soon?
Lu Ann

WTG Kosta!!!!!!!! That is great!!!!

Sorry you guys been rough here again, yet and still, I know what I need to do though.

Btw, tuesday I found out I am a motivator. Talk about a shocker. No support here at home still but I am hanging in there and back working out again a little bit though. If I over do it, Frank (my trainer) will be upset with me.

The other half (Gary) goes back to work tomorrow. emoticon time for real!!! His old job finally called him back.

Have a good day and KEEP STRIVING KOSTA!!!!!!!!

I am so sorry I have not been around. I have been posting on the Cleveland Team. Now things are hairy around here. My nephew's (who I am really close to) newborn (2 weeks) had surgery. So the family is all getting together to chip our time in on the other three kind.

I am getting antsy. I want the nice weather to get here and stay here. I am ready to work outside. That is if I can get the cat off my lap!

Oh my I feel for you. I hate when the smell is so bad it burns your eyes and nose. Darn little pesky things, but they're cute. It will probably take a few days to get rid of the smell too. At least the weather is going to be decent.

I am about to leave the house to have coffee with another Sparker. It was a horrible day at work and I would prefer a gin & tonic but if I have to do coffee oh well.

Hopefully this week end is a sign of things to come. Everyone get out and enjoy the weather if you can.

Not so happy Thursday.
I got almost no sleep. Skunks were fighting in our backyard last night & the loser died on our deck. spray was everywhere and the whole house smelled so bad we had to sleep in the living room (me on the floor on chair cushions) with a window open and candles going. It was cold, bright, smelly and the floor is hard! also not sleeping in the bed made the dogs wary and they kept getting up, walking on the hardwood clacking their little nails and stepping on me.
I called the police, they said if it was still alive they could shoot it for us but dead, they can't help us!..
wish they made an insurance coverage for this! The only good thing is my cold left me with a stuffy nose so it wasn't as bad for me.

at least I ate a quick light breakfast and was never so happy to go to work! lol

The only things I am aware of planting early ( mid April) would be things like peas, radishes and turnips. Other things which should wait for May because of possible frost would not do much growing because of the cold. Those same things planted in May would harvest at the same time as those planted in April if they survive. Hey its worth a shot but I think I will hold off on the warm weather stuff until the soil warms up.

I had no idea that we could plant as early as end of March in Ohio unless indoors or hot house.

will have to rethink what I am gonna plant now that I might need to start sooner.

You have started seeds already... how big will those things be by the time is warm in Lake County! and should I be starting now??

I too feel like once the ice breaks I can get outside. The lake is too close to not walk up & see it.

He ladies.

I am doing my garden again this year. I have already started seeds for Brussels sprouts, Hot peppers, green peppers, pablano peppers, beefsteak tomatos, Roma tomatos, and grape tomatos. I also have 3 grape vines I just pruned back during the nice weather.
Getting that spring fever itch. I'll be glad to start walking/running outside instead of on the tread bu th tread is great for maintaining speed.

I have heard about the place in Grand River but have never been there. My father planted an extensive garden and won several blue ribbons at the county fair. My garden will never hold a candle to his. I usually just plant tomatoes, peas, beans, lettuce, peppers and zucchini. This year my sister, cousin and I are getting two plots out at the Wickliffe gardens and we plan on planting much more. My freezer will be full this year.

A swap may be a great idea!

Have you gone to the pick your own concord grape place in Ashtabula Co? I am on the mailing list, when they send the post card this summer to say they are open again I will let you know. I swear I can't remember exactly where it is...I am bad with directions.

I actually don't think the produce is much different at the West Side Market as the Willoughby one. I like the meats, breads and some times desserts.

For produce I swear the little place in Grand River is the best.

I normally only plant tomatoes and this year I was gonna go with radishes too and maybe something else. Hubby not big on veggies so don't want to grow stuff that will go to waste. maybe if enough folks are growing things we can swap a few times.
What do you like to grow, or plan to this year?

Have a great day!

Debonne does early Saturday music. We also go to Grand River. Their music is later. I like very few wines. I was raised in a house with concord grapes and like concord wine. Problem is not many wineries around here use them. I heard most our concord grapes go to Welches.

Didn't get to enjoy the weather. I did go out to dinner with SP member Buckette. We had a nice time and a good meal.

I don't shop the West Side Market. For me I can't wait until local produce comes in to the Willoughby Market. It is a same the season is so short.

Anyone planting a garden this year? With the price of produce I will for sure.

I have not been to the winery but have tried a few of Virant's wines. not my favorite either.
I have not been to Debonne since they expanded last time. We normally do after noon runs not the PM fun.
I do like the Firehouse in the summer, food, lake and ok wine. lots of places to meet I say we try it some time.

Did anyone take advantage of the good weather? I know I worked thru it all but some one must have done something FUN!!

We went to the Westside Market last weekend. Anyone else go there or have another local spot they like?

Amy, we went to South River and Virants. I was not impressed with either one and doubt if I would go back. I am a Debonne girl. We love to go out there listen to good music (usually when andy's last band is playing) and dance our butts off. Good exercise. Maybe that's a good meeting place for the Lake County Team.

Michael, Glad to have you back. I know what you mean. Lately I have been tied up with the Cleveland boards. But every now and then I have to come back to Lake County. It's where my heart is.

I just got home from work. I'm having my afternoon snack and 16 ounces of water as we speak. I haven't checked out the winter snow warning yet so I have no clue what we are in for. But, when they call for mega inches we usually get 2. But I hope everyone drives safely and dresses warmly.
