Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
We are right here behind you and we won’t tempt you - too often - it’s like a test you know. Keep up the good work- good things will happen! xoxo
You know everything you need to do and have way more power than you give yourself credit for most of the time. Tell your manchild that you are a thoroughbred. xo
I KNOW THE FEELING. I am back in the gym after a little bit of a hiatus…I am AT my pregnancy weight.
My best friend, She of Zero Willpower, lost 40 pounds with WW and has kept it off for more than three years. BIG believer in this. Good luck!
The whole reason I joined is that some local friends here talked SO HIGHLY of it. Ashley lost 30 pounds a year ago and kept it off and Tricia just started and loves it.
Sadly, the Red Velvet Cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory is 20 points PER SLICE. 1200 calories and 63 grams of delicious fat. OHYEA.
I should adopt the “I get to…” mentality. That’s a good way to look at it. I’m going to work on my “I get to” list.
First off? I love you just the way you are.
Secondly? I’m a huge WW fan. It helped me take off 60 pregnancy pounds nearly seven years ago, and now it helps me Every Time My Pants are Too Tight. Love it.
I have done WW before and it definitely works. Too bad I work in a grocery store and sell cheese for a living. That being said, it really did teach me what things will fill me up for the least amount of calories. I’m really good with my actual meals as far as calories, but I get into trouble w/snacks. WW is great for that. Fat-free cottage cheese w/some fruit is a great way to get over the afternoon hump.
I loved WW. I was on it for a while, needed to loose weight to up my chance of getting pregnant. It really does work if you stay with it! Best of luck to you.
Keep up the great work! I’ve been doing WW for about 16 weeks. I’ve lost 23 pounds and couting. It’s very eye-opening once you start tracking! My first day in, I drank 16 points worth of coke before I went to my weigh in. Ugh!
I’m glad you explained hangry.
Hi Mrs. Flinger!
If you want more weight losss support, check out my blog, Healthy by Choices. It’s to help people make the healthy choice one at a time, and I think you might like it!
Good luck to you. I’ve done myfitnesspal.com on and off with good results. The last two months have definitely been…off. And I’ve definitely gained. *sigh*
P.S. Your current weight is slightly under my goal weight… *double sigh* Does it make a difference that I am 5’10”?
I hate to tell you this- but apparently cookies shaped like fruits and vegetables- with the appropriate colored icing- are still, apparently, not fruits and vegetables. This weight loss thing is vicious.
Been reading your blog for a while- just thought I’d finally drop a comment. Us girls and our diet tips got to stick together.
I joined WW 11 weeks ago. Sadly I’ve only lost 10 pounds but I suppose that’s 10 more pounds than I would’ve lost had I not joined. And if for nothing else I do enjoy the meetings for the people watching… like the lady who always brings a snack (ironic, yes?) and the fact that I actually kind of feel skinny there (I’m mean, I know).
All I can say is thank goodness for Vitamuffins, WW chocolate cake and WW lemon cake. Still, it’s hard to remember that just because they’re only 1 point doesn’t mean I should have 4 of them.
OMG, I have been HANGRY my whole life and never knew there was a word for it!!!
Mynde, You say WHUWHU?! What the hell?! Does beer with fruit on it count as fruit? Please say yes.
LSG,dude, that’s great! A pound a week?! AWESOME. That’s my plan.
Nicole- I’m in a support group. They serve cookies.
First off, the word “hangry” might be one of my new favorites.
Second, I did WW for 8 months last year and it is the only thing that has ever worked. Dieting or trying to give up all the bad stuff? NEVER worked. I just cheated. With WW you can still eat that stuff… just once in a while, in moderation. It has gone a long way toward teaching me how to eat. Once this baby is out of me (soooooon, pleeeez) I am totally going back on it.
