You know that commerical for FedEx where the guy is all, "And it's not the leaning tower of PIZZA"? That's what I think of when you text me a new goodie of stupidity.
Is there someone you can send your list to? Like.... her boss? Maybe you could tell them for full credit, you'll teach the rest of the course.
Seriously, Tricky, she said that genetically modified foods and the hormones that go into cows were resulting in early onset of puberty. Now.. they might be making us fatter, but they're not making us older. *headdesk*
O.M.G. Does she really not have materials to help her teach this class? I thought that anybody in a position to teach a health class would know that puberty is brought on by the body reaching a certain height/weight. I guess you could eat enough hormone laden meat to trigger puberty, but dood! how much would that be?
I thought of you yesterday when I had to have this necklace:http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi?page=proframe&prod_id=1182009
I am doing free weights (pyramid upper body) like a mad woman so that I can get a skimpy top to properly showcase it.
You're still using Sweet-n-Low? Once I crossed over into Equal/Splenda land I couldn't tolerate SNL any more.
Have a good evening! I enjoyed your update.
That necklace is divine.. you chose well. :)
And as for the sweetener thing, I use Splenda for topping things, baking, mixing into my oatmeal, all that stuff.. but for tea, where the taste isn't that big a deal, I still use the pink stuff. I go through so much of it and the office has it in big bunches ... so.. yeah I sometimes still use it. :)
The fact that you are so dead smart about so much stuff is another reason why we are friends:) Only here would I find out that stuff. Thank you :)

By the by... would love to come to Tourney, what do I need to do sweetums?
WHEEE!!! COME TO TOURNEY! I'm sending in the feast reservations today and I'll make one for you.. would it be just you or would you be bringing the girl? She would probably like it just fine if you wanted to bring her.. Otherwise.. just show up. I'll bring something for you to wear (and for herself as well).. So what I always say is bring something to drink out of (a plain coffee mug is fine, just something that isn't the Diet Coke can) and something to sit on.. if you don't have a folding nylon chair you can get them from Wal-Mart for like $6 or I probably have an extra. I'll bring a sheet to throw over it.
If you'd like to camp on Saturday night Cait said you're welcome in her tent, she might even be persuaded to bring along sleeping stuff for you. Consider camping.. the stories and fire circles are great and the camping isn't really that rough. I'm probably leaving relatively early the next morning (mother's day brunch) but not so early that there won't be coffee and hugs. :)
YAY!!! OMG YAY!
Said Girly will be in PA Fri-Sun. She is in competition (Band/Orchestra TRI State Finals)"leading her section to victory"( or something of that nature, she says) so it will be just the ME.
La will alreday be in FL then.
I can crash, be it in Cait's or wherever. The camping isn't the problem, it's the crickets. If you don't mind, chances are good I'll be leaving when you do, so If I can follow you out, that'd be great. Have to be back at school to pick up herself Sunday. YAY for dressing up....

in Thanks for letting me wear pretty pretty princesses dresses WHO'S MY MELLY?
That link come sup really really small, so FYI, like you don't know... that's Carter :) He isn't Sean from GBS but he'll do....
How far are you from the 150?
You can do it, Melly, because you rock. And you've proven that you can do it by however much it is you've lost so far. :)
Well right now I'm at 150.6. But the problem is that this is like 18th time I've been here. I go down to about 145 and then think "WOOO!" and then I eat. Or I get to that goal before Pennsic and then go off to War and eat everything that comes near me. So... the goal is to get below and then keep going rather than gaining and losing the same four pound for (and I'm not joking here) the 10th time.
And as for so far? My first WW weigh-in was 196.4 though I probably topped out about 210. So... I've done not so bad.. and I'm pleased, don't get me wrong, but I'm still carrying too much for my frame and need to keep going.
Thank you for the encouragement.. you make me smile so big. :)
How tall are you, out of curiousity?
Dude. That's fucking fabulous. You're amazing and an inspiration. :)
Dontcha hate how your body sets these points, and protests madly when you try to go below them? When you break through this barrier, at least, then your body will refuse to go above 145, which I'm sure will feel great. (If your body works like mine and my mother's, that is).
I'm 5'3" and a half. I cling to that half, in case you were curious. I nurture it and take it out at night and love on it. :)
My body seems to just adore the area between 152 and 156 and would happily stay there for ages. Now it's up to me to add more lean muscle mass in order to increase metabolism and retrain the "happy" weight. And man.. I'm just praying that it then becomes harder to go over a certain weight.. dude.. that would be lovely.
We're exactly the same height, then.
I stayed at that mid-150s range for years, swinging down once to mid-140s (when I did the gym thing), before moving up. What IS it with that set point? Because it's just over 150, and would be so much easier to bear if it were just below, because then the big weight on the fancy scales is one level lower, which feels better intellectually.
You'll get down, and be able to stay there. You will. Maybe it's time to change up something about your routine to jump-start your metabolism again.
(And maybe I should follow your lead.)
It's true.. that big weight goes up one more notch and you're like "meh." And then that sticks with you. Just irks me.
I started running again to kick start the metabolism and we'll see what a difference responsible eating makes for the whole thing.. I've got my fingers crossed.. I really want those yoga pants. :)
I just texted you back because I just found your message. *is doofus*
also? *demands hugs omg!*
*brushes your hair*
Okay, on the weight front? I don't weigh myself terribly often. Maybe once every threeish months or so, when curiousity takes over. And here's the thing: I've dropped a couple dress sizes this year and I'm still the same weight. I'm 5'7" (and a half? Maybe? I've been measured as tall as 5'8", but... eh) and 183 lbs. But now I'm a fit 183, and I carry it well; when I look at myself nekkid, I'd totally do me. But the number weirds me out.
Intellectually, I know it's the muscle. My thighs? Turned into pure muscle. (well, except for the jigglies on the inner thigh, but those are supposed to be there) Tummy? A little more than normal girl-fat over loads of muscle. Butt? Dude, it escaped me sometime last year.
I don't think I could lose 30 pounds and be healthy; I'd have to lose muscle mass to do it, and uh, no.
which is weird, psychologically. To know that I can't be a 'normal female weight'. Wild. But you know? I look good, and that's a huge ego-boost. ;)
