    • Hey Pebbles! Your show looks super fun, I was reading a bit of your journal. I am doing a play for the first time in a decade. I am also back on the wagon big style, insulin resistant. No metformin for me, it is diet and exercise all the way. Let food be thy medicine, since it has surely been my poison!

      Glad to see all of you lovely ladies still at it. I hope you don't mind me jumping back in. I don't know if I'll do the journal thing. Kind of thinking of using my blog for thoughts, and I'm tracking on sparkpeople to make sure I stay in my carb range for now.

      Husbands and money, sheesh, it is so hard isn't it? I'm off the pill and excited and terrified. My DH needs a new job, bc he doesn't make steady income and it is time for him to start his career. Luckily, he is motivated and more open to advice and new methods than he has ever been. I just get nervous to throw a baby on top, but I'm almost 38, so we are just allowing the chips to fall where they may. Communication is key, and is so trying. Self care and letting go of being an overfunctioner have saved my marriage. When he says some bs to me, I calmly look at him and redirect. It had eased my anxiety to not be responsible for the whole show, not to always feel like I have to fix it, to tell him the truth of what I can do, instead of killing myself to fix things and resenting him for it, I just don't anymore. If you get a chanvce to do some reading on overfunctioning and the underfunctioning it creates, do, it saved me from getting in my car and driving away and never looking back!

      • Ok, for those of you that do the zuke noodles, would a vegetable peeler work to make them and how do you cook them? And how much would I need to feed just myself? I know the fam damily won't eat them. Tris would be the only to eat them other than myself.

        Officially started Christmas shopping on lunch. Got the girls some very cute jewelry and hair accessories at a holiday bazaar downstairs at work. Now, I need to order a few things from Amazon and BBC America and I'll pretty much done.

        • You could probably make them with a cheese grater or even just slicing them into strips. I find that the seedy middle doesn't work so great, so I stop when that is all that is left. You can steam them or saute them. One medium is good for one person, and if you make too much, leftovers!

          • I make it with a mandolin, but pre mandolin, I used a peeler and knife (to cut the peeled bits to the right width). My knife work isn't awesome enough to get good, thin noodles. I generally need a large zuke for just me, cut in half and seeded with a spoon before I start peeling.

            • I've only tried Trader Joe's brown rice pasta once. It was pretty gross. After being refrigerated, however, it tasted fine. Maybe we overcooked it or something? The texture was just really weird when it was freshly cooked (made baked chicken parm, used rice-based bread crumbs for the chicken).

              • So my cheese grater would work, awesome. I'm trying to spend as little on extras as possible right now. With Christmas, bills and knowing that I won't get paid for not working for 2 days the week of Thanksgiving(the office I work at is closed and the agency I work for doesn't pay for holidays, bitches). How would I sautee' them? I'm terrible at sauteeing and steaming certain veggies(unless they come in a steaming bag) and I know I have a tendency to overcook zukes.

                I officially started Christmas shopping today. There was a craft bazaar at work and I bought a bunch of cute stuff for the girls. Spent only $34 so very proud of myself.

                • Heat oil in pan, saute until a noodly texture (approx 3-5 min.) If you nuke it, it's 1 min in my overpowered beast of a microwave.

                  • Thanks, NK. I'll try that out sometime soon.

                    Did a little more Christmas shopping last night. Clint and I are HUGE fans of the British version of Top Gear. Seriously funny and good show. I ordered the both of us shirts that say, "I am The Stig". His is navy and has the backside of The Stig on the back and mine is red and has The Stig standing with his arms crossed next to a badass sports car. We're doing Christmas at our house on Christmas eve this year then doing Christmas morning at his mom's. Told Clint that he has to wait until Christmas eve to get his shirt. He was pouting and stuff but I wouldn't let it change my mind. Besides, I had stuff shipped to his mom's. Yep, I am one smart cookie.

                    • Why in the fucking hell is being a parent so fucking difficult????? My eldest did a not so intelligent thing last night. She put the Aussie on a leash and kept him in the house, her cellphone was in her hand and Clint didn't realize Bandit was on the leash, dog came flying and so did the cellphone, right onto the floor. Now, the screen won't light up but she can still dial out on it. She refuses to use it. So just now, she started bitching about probably not having a phone to use until at least January. The minute she said that, I turned around and told her that if she mentions the phone again, she won't have a phone again until she gets a job EVER. That's when she started going on and on about not having a life and I told her not to talk me about that. She is the one who screwed up last night and she needs to stop acting like a dumb blonde. I told her that she's a smart girl but if she acted like she was intelligent, people would be more apt to want to be friends with her. I told her acting stupid doesn't win any friends and that if she acted smart, her friends would want to be around her more often and her confidence would be much higher. Some days, being a parent makes you feel like shit.

                        • Well, I don't have it that bad YET, but I do have twin girls.

                          You know, my one daughter is rather socially inept. At age 11 she can't even call people on the phone without major issues. TEXTING has ruined kids, if you ask me. My kids don't even know the phone numbers of their best friends. I am MAKING them get the numbers for ME. It's amazing to me.... when I was a kid, girls especially, spent HOURS on the phone. Now they just have sore thumbs, and can't communicate properly.

                          My kids use an iTouch to text. They both want phones. I am extremely hesitant on that.
                          Start Date 9.24.12
                          Starting weight 285ish ( scale is acting funny so I don't trust it, but 285 is close )
                          CW - 271 pounds
                          First Goal - 255 by 2013
                          Main Goal - To be healthy for my family... I have an awesome family.
                          Other Goal - to get off some medications
                          Final goal - to get to about 180 pounds by 2014
                          NEW GOAL - When I can start a new journal called "Your dad is not so fat!"

                            • I have 3 daughters, the youngest two are 11.5 months apart. On the 28th of November, my youngest will be 11 and she and the middle daughter will be the same age until December 14. The oldest will be 14 in January.

                              Back from getting my youngest daughters trumpet. So happy she got it. She is now practicing. My oldest is teaching her how to play it. She played baritone in 6th grade, so she has an idea on how to play brass instruments. She's also kick ass on the clarinet and has had no training on it. Damn, wish I could get her into music lessons. Got the youngest some jeans and a couple of tops at a consignment shop and the oldest a pair of shoes. Picked up the Harry Potter books for the middle daughter today. Spent $36 on the books for her. Super stoked that I got them for her.

                              • Well, I just found out I should be glad I left the old job. If I wouldn't have, I would've lost my job last Friday due to have taking unscheduled time off. They got rid of 75% of the staff there. God/The Universe works in strange ways.
