Hi!
I'm a divorced mom of 3 boys.
I restarted the JC program 2 weeks ago & am looking for support buddies.
Here's to our health!

Hi Holly!
I had my next WI today~157.8~I was 156.6 at home w/o clothes so I'm losing!
My WATP dvd & weights came today~thought I'd go back to the walking since I've been too tired to workout.
I cheat too~sometimes it just happens~we're human
Good luck to you!
When is your next WI?

If the jeans feel loser then you've definitely lost inches even if not pounds so WTG!!!
Keep it up!
I work all day tomorrow & then my honey is coming for supper so I might not get on again for a day or too,but know I'm thinking about you & sending you "GO GET EM" vibes!!!

I'm divorced with two boys (17 & 15). I teach 8th grade. New to JC but very impressed so far. Food is wonderful. Having trouble working in workout time. I've lost 5 lbs. in first two weeks. My WIs are on Tuesdays. I'm afraid I may have gained this week - PMS plus Sunday dinner at my parents' house. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for the welcome. Tomorrow is WI day for me. I agr agree about the overall downward trend thing. I just hope I won't go up at all!
We do have different challenges as single moms. A big problem for me is finding time to exercise (& energy!). I went to my gym for the first time in months on Sat. and today and walked on the treadmill 20 minutes and swam for about 15. Hope your week goes well!

I knew this WI wouldn't be good. I'm ok - extra motivated to really stick to it this week! I've been fitting in exercise and drinking more water-so I have high hopes for next week.
I enjoy your responses, it's great to have support. Ya'll keep up the good work!

I'm glad you worked through your hunger pains~WTG!!!
I've been dating a guy for 9 1/2 months & yesterday he decided not to talk to me with no explanation~it's been pulling on my heart something terribly.
I ate a blizzard to cope.
I'm under the weather~
Good luck on your date~how exciting!!!

I haven't dated anyone yet. If the right person along I'll go for it. In regards to your comment about gaining in a relationship, you could be like me. I have seen a relationship correlation, but I've found that I gain when I'm happy or content, and lose under stress. My brother was killed in an accident 18 years ago and I lost weight without even thinking about weight. My mom passed away in 1997 and my dad started dating and weight just melted off with no effort. Separation/divorce - people told me I looked the best ever. Now that I'm happier than I've been in a long time,(all aspects of my life are going well except weight) I gained 31 lbs. in ONE YEAR!!! Seems to be a catch 22. I certainly don't want anymore tragedies, but I desparately want to get back to where I was post divorce!(130 lbs.) It must be a sub-consious mental thing. Go figure!
Great to connect with ya'll - keep up the good work and good luck with your love lives!

Sorry to hear about your losses Cathy.
I became content & happy in my relationship too & stopped working out~I'm flabbier now...
The past 2 weeks have been off for me eating wise...I think it's my relationship woes...
My WI is Wednesday & I think I've gained 3 pounds!!!
I hope you guys are doing better then me this week!
Keep it up Holly & Cathy~you CAN do it!!

Single mom here !! I'm 38 with a 13 year old boy !! It's sheer, unadulterated craziness trying to feed this kid (who by the way is 5'10 and about 160) who is eating me out of house and home and trying to keep myself on the JC... I knew it would be hard to do with his appetite, but I've got one week down and doing my very best !! Glad to see some other single moms here !! PS - how do you keep them out of your cheesecake ?? lol

Hi gals!
Welcome Ohiolady!
I'm an August 1969 baby!
I skipped WI last week & I'm not going today~too much to do & my little one is sneezing & coughing,but I'm ok on my weight.
My honey bunches & me just had a miscommunication problem so things are wonderful again.
HOLLY~I'm so glad your date went well~here's hoping he calls.
On keeping kids out of the JC food~my 5 year old helps me eat everything!
I need to refocus & get my priorities straight & remember why I'm on the JC plan.
Here's to us looking HOT this Summer!

I have a myspace acccount.. but don't check it nearly as often as I do my Yahoo 360 blog. I don't blog onmy space or anythign - I really just have it to read up on a couple of the friends I have on it. I think I have three friends ! lol... but I'm ohiolady1969 on Myspace as well as yahoo... I do have a picture up if you're just "dying" to knwo what I look like !! lol
I'm a computer geek by training and trade so I am really lovin' this JC site and the online journal, this message board and the tools for printing meal plans, etc. I think this is great !!

Hello Angie & Holly and welcome OhioLady! Sorry I haven't posted lately; busy week and my computer is acting weird. OhioLady, you might need to come down here and help me out! I'm just about computer illiterate! I don't know how to add the little smiley faces or really do anything but type!
It seems I'm the old lady of our little group - I was born in 1963. I hate to tell y'all this, but weight just seems to jump on me without warning since I hit my forties. And my eyesight is going, too! I've always had 20/20 vision and now I have to wear glasses to read. Now that I've given y'all something to look forward to...
Which day of the week do each of you WI? Mine is Tuesday. Good luck to all and I'll try to post tomorrow.
Cathy
