    OH, that would awesome! Good luck! When is the interview? (I'm a pray-er, more than a fingers crosser ) If you don't mind - I'll send up a request on your part.

      When I get a date I will let you know. Prayers always appreciated - I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer.

I've pooped around too long with being a weanie and not wanting to go walk in the rain! Okay - in my own defense, it really isn't the rain, it was the cold. Fibromyalgia and cold don't mix well. So, I stayed in the house where it was warm. But I can't use that excuse now cuz the temps are in the 50's and that is plenty warm enough to throw on a jacket and go for a nice brisk walk. And that is where I'm going right now! Yeah ME!

        Come on, Ladies! Get out there!!!!

        PHEW!!! all done with the whole 2 3/4 miles!!! I wasn't sure if I would make it cuz my stomach starting cramping - but I figured out it wasn't "issues", just hunger pangs! So, breakfast of champions for me!!!! the rest of the salmon that I cooked for dinner last night. I've now had salmon - 4 meals in a row! I'm wondering if I could ever get sick of salmon???? I strongly doubt it! Dinner will have to be chicken I guess. Not nearly as good............
        Yay, Tomi! You're doing better than me lately, for sure.

        Now about those rainy days... dancing.

          Ha, it IS me, thanks. It's funny, the other day I was on a date at the dog park and it was really hot, so we both took our shirts off (I had a sports bra on, obviously, lmao). After I took mine off, the guy I was with put his back on - said my abs made him embarrassed about his!

            • I wore a pair of jean shorts yesterday that I've not gotten on in 2 summers. Then last night when getting ready for bed, I slipped them off without unsnapping or unzipping without even thinking about it. Scale might not be moving, but inches must be changing!

                YES!!!!!! Good job!!!! I'm so excited for you!

                My "motivation" pants are hanging on my closet door. They are Silver jeans, size 12. I bought them at the Good Will - not knowing they were originally $80 jeans!! I paid $6 for them - SCORE!!!! I wore them for a short time during the winter of 2010 when I had lost 50 pounds on the Medifast diet (think soy meal replacement). I LOVE those jeans and I'm dying to be able to wear them again!!! I also have a closet full of really cute stuff that I had bought that winter because we went on a Carribean Cruise that year. So I have CUTE tops and capris that I'm so anxious to be able to wear again. I have 2 tankini's that I was hoping to be able to wear this summer - but its looking very doubtful at this point. Next summer for sure!!

                Great Job, Pedidoc!

                • Keep it up Tomi, you will get there. It's just slower for some of us. I like to think slow and steady wins the long term race - we will keep it off when we hit goal, since we worked so hard to get there!

                  • Thanks for the encouragement. I know it will come off - slow by steady - as long as I stay the course. I need bumper pads like they put in the bowling alley for little kids so they don't gutter ball! tht would help me stay on course!

                    The day is going great! I walked 2.75 miles this morning. I'm really enjoying the walking and seeing the flowers blooming in the peoples yards! Now I'm taking a little break from yardwork to make some lunch. I'm working on a 20 hour fast! Didn't eat cuz I wasn't hungry. I'm frying a chicken breast now. Will finish that and then back outside in this wonderful sunshine! Soaking up the rays and making vitamin D out of them!

                    Hope everyone's day is going good.

                    • Hi Ladies!!!!

                      I made a quick intro yesterday in the newbie section. I'm basically one week into Primal. I haven't stood on the scale -b/c i don't really want to- lol. I picked up Marks book last night (PB) and can't wait to read it. I love love this website. I'm always so motivated after reading some of the articles I can't get over the energy I have eating this way!!! It's awesome!!

                      Tomi - I relate to your closet full of smaller clothes!!!
                      Pedidic - I smiled when I read about your jean shorts I get excited when my skirts move around my body when I'm walking (the back ends up at the front or side lol)

                      • I wish the weather would clear up - we've had rain and SNOW of all things the last several days! I want to start walking again...but I'm too much of a weenie to do it in 40* weather and 25mph wind gusts.

                          • Just got back from the vet. Had to put our 15 year old schnauzer to sleep. She was in liver failure and diabetic, stopped eating, and lost the use of her back legs. Youngest son was with her when they gave her the injection. Tough day!

                                LOL yep, there's not a lot out here. We always have turbulent springs - we're pretty high elevation, and it's not uncommon to get snow in early June. It doesn't stick, but we'll get an inch or so that hangs out in the early mornings. But I'll deal with the rough springs, because summer and fall are BEAUTIFUL. Winter is...well...winter. But it could be worse. We could get freezing rain like Chicago or tons of snow like Minnesota. So I'll take my little bit of snow and ice and be happy!
