Michael (UppityEmpress) has been a part of the MouseWait family since 2010. He's been a WDW Cast Member for over 31 years. To say that he's a generous person is an understatement. He's given so much to people in our community for so many years, and has been a great friend. Michael has battled health issues for quite some time and needs surgery. He needs our help. If there is anything you can spare  More...

From the bottom of my heart I thank all of you for reading the story and just thinking of him.  He's been a great friend and to all who are graced by his prescence......you just overwhelmingly know he's such a pure soul.  If you are able to assist,  I bow down to you.  I may have a few issues getting back up.  Really. I do thank  you.   - Butterlina  1427.0 #83 10:18PM
OMG! I just wanted to thank admin and all of my MWer family for thinking of me. I know I haven't been on mw for such a long time. The people I have met thru this wonderful app have become like family to me. The most beautiful and memorable times of my life have been spent with MWers both in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. I'm so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support and continued prayers. I'm so thankful to admin fir allowing me to be part of this family. I hope I'll be able to get back out to Disneyland soon for more fun adventures. I'm sending each and everyone of you a big hug. Love you  - UppityEmpress  784.3 #5 8:04AM

I've decided that browsing MW while watching TV while listening to update music is the best way to tolerate my elliptical!

Yes, I definitely need to be entertained when I'm using the cardio machines!  I used to love reading a book and listening to Pandora on the elliptical--I think I read most of Gone With the Wind one winter while exercising.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 3:29PM

Yesterday I had an interview and hadn't thought out the outfit.  My old black "work" pants swam on me, so today I went through the "bag of many sizes" and redid my closet. I was exhausted after trying on everything (counts as exercise, right?)

How did the interview go?  Congrats on the new size. :) - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #336 7:44AM
It went good I guess.  I'm trying not to second guess them anymore.  If I get too excited, I never hear back!   I am glad to have cleaned out my closet...cranked up the A/C and just got it done! (trying on jeans is not my favorite thing!). - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 7:44PM

Had a 2nd interview yesterday.  The job looks okay, but I don't think that the pay will be worth driving that far (it's in Lahaina - I'd be buying gas every week which would be over $200 a month!).  Also, one of the employees would be real fun to work with...she introduced herself to me by saying 'I'm the mean one that every one says is the bitch".  All righty then..... - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 8:13PM
Oh wow, way to make a first impression, lol.  Well, see how it plays out.  Gas is so expensive that you definitely have to consider how far you're driving.  You almost have to ask yourself "would this be something I would consider if they offered me $200 per month less? Could I live a happy life on that?"   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 10:18PM

Hello how is everyone doing?

I'm okay I guess. Still frustrated by my plateaus!   I'm 8 lbs from my 40# goal and it's torture!  I stepped up the exercise (did 4 mile walks 3x's his week in addition to the elliptical and dog walk) bit still only lost like 3 ozs!  How's everyone else doing? - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 12:07AM
I know it's frustrating but keep going!  - disneyland4me  239.5 #1335 12:42PM
Doing well trying to train 5-6 days a week to get ready for the Disneyland half marathon. I haven't lost any weight I'm must be doing something wrong but that's OK.  - disneyland4me  239.5 #1335 12:41PM
I lost a whole 0.8 last week!  Whoo Hoo!  I've within 8 lbs of my goal weight (4 and I'm back in the 120's!) but it's like pulling teeth at this point....hey...that's an idea.  How much do teeth weigh...lol! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 8:20PM
Lol, I once grew my hair real long so that I could donate it.  I ended up cutting 15 inches off, and got on the scale the next morning--I had lost a few pounds in 24 hours.  I had no idea how much my hair weighed! It was so funny!  😂   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 8:49AM
My hair is too short.  Too bad that there's not a blood drive in town today! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 2:48PM
Ran my best 3 mile time in at least 5 years this morning, so I'm feeling encouraged right now.  How is your training going?  I have the same experience with my weight loss stalling--seems like when I start running a lot and for longer distances, I stop losing.  I don't know why, either.  I could eat less, but I'm starving after anything longer than 10k.  Maybe I'm just overeating.   I think several other people have said they have similar experiences, so you're not alone!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 3:56PM

Running at 5:30am isn't beating the heat anymore.

I know!  I keep trying to convince myself that the monsoonal moisture makes it feel "just like running in the morning in Hawaii," but it's really nothing like that 😂 I'm in the midst of overcast agricultural land with 105 for the high today.  It does NOT smell like Hawaii!  🙊 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 7:13PM

Have you ever run a half before?  Maybe you could go to a gym to do a few long runs on a treadmill before the race?  Last year I wasn't able to run outside for two weeks because of smoky conditions from a wildfire, and that's what I did--I did a few short runs and my last long run.  It's not ideal, and it was really boring, but for me I think it was better than not doing a 12 miler before the race because I had never run that much before.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 11:51AM

Hi all! I hope you're all doing well! I've been trying to get more running in since the Disneyland half marathon is coming up pretty quickly. I've actually been getting up at 5:15am twice a week to go run because it's way too hot when I get home from work. Over the holiday weekend we were at the beach but I still managed a 4 mile walk, a 6 mike run and two 10 mile bike rides.

👋 hi there!  Glad you're staying active despite the heat.  It's hard having to get up early--I'm doing pre-6 am jogs, too.  My dog is not even that excited to go at that time, lol 😂 Usually he wakes me up by dropping my sneaker by the bed, but at 5 am he's still sound asleep when my alarm goes off.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 9:56PM
Holy Cow! I think that you're doing amazing!  To tell you the truth, I wouldn't get us at 5:15 for anything!  That's why I don't think that deep down, I'm marathon material...but then again, I'm old and I'm just proud of myself to walk my dog every evening and use my elliptical most days! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 10:25PM
I always have a goal of finishing a Half Marathon under 3 hours, and I know the way I'm running now won't get me under that goal so I have to train and I'm finding that it's easier to run in the morning. I actually feel better during the day.  - MXPrincess399  631.8 #256 10:06AM
MDM, I am a total night owl. I never thought I would get up so early unless I absolutely had to for work or to leave for the airport for a flight to Hawaii, Europe or Australia 😂  my body's gotten used to it, but I had a terrible time trying to adjust my internal clock!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 5:59PM
I give you credit SoS.  I don't think that it'll ever happen with me, but never say never! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 11:42PM
MXPrincess, what do you do for food before your early morning runs? I have a hard time with that because is rather just get up, drink a little water and head out, but I need to eat something or else I'm running on empty.  However, everything I've read suggests eating at least 30 mins prior, but I'd rather not sit around waiting for food to digest--I'll be tempted to just go back to bed!  What do you do?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 10:52AM
I don't eat. I get up at 5:15, drink a little water and try to be out the door by 5:30am. I do about 4 miles in the morning with a stop at the park drinking fountain at mile 2. I don't find that I feel bad or anything. Usually before a Half Marathon I'll eat a banana and some peanut butter. I never been able to eat when I first get up. I don't usually eat my oatmeal until 10am, on my first break and that's about the time I start to get hungry, running day or not.  - MXPrincess399  631.8 #256 4:59PM
Ok good to know.  I think I've been trying to eat too much because I was afraid I'd pass out or feel bad, but it doesn't sit well that early.  It makes sense to eat a bagel or something if you run later in the day, but first thing in the morning just doesn't work.  I'm going to try just having a little yogurt or string cheese and see how that works.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 8:18AM

I'm going to try again this year to do the early morning walk around DCA.  I read that you should be able to do a 15 min mile.  Since my dog is old (and sniffs EVERY single plant) we usually do a 45 min mile.  Well...he's in the kennel (because I'm headed to San Diego for 3 days to see Mom) so I decided to see how fast I can do the mile.  The results...13 min for the 1st, and 1  More...

What a fantastic goal. I've never done that. It sounds like fun.  - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #336 11:58PM
Last February when I stayed at the Grand I had every intention to get up in the morning and do this walk. Unfortunately early entry and closing out the parts each night got in the way. But one day for sure I want to do this.  - MXPrincess399  631.8 #256 7:30AM
That's great!  Wow, a 13 min mile walking is impressive--that's sometimes my jogging pace!  Great job!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 10:48AM

Weigh in day results: Down 2.4. Second week in a row that I have lost over 2 pounds. I am going to treat myself to some time in the parks this week. Where and what isnyour favorite place to eat?

Congratulations!  I would probably have a pear martini or tequila Daisy at Carthay Circle and dinner at either Bordwalk Pizza and Pasta (The food isn't super-duper fabulous, but it's good--I mainly just adore sitting outside in the evening there), Cafe Orleans (we love to split house salad and Monte Cristo), or Bengal Barbeque with a Dole Whip for dessert!  Now I'm hungry, lol 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 9:37PM
Thank you! I think I am going to treat myself to my first ever Dole Whip!! - LuvsTigger  651.8 #241 2:49PM
You will love it!  And I've googled the nutritional info in the past--it's actually not that bad.  I think 1/2 cup has something like 90-100 calories and it's fairly low fat.  Problem is that my guess is that the servings are more than 1/2 cup, lol 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 9:51PM
That's awesome!  What a great loss.  I love to eat in disneyland as much as anything else. My favorite meal is fried chicken. I only get to the park a few times a year. I also love the bake potato soup. Yummy. Enjoy.  - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #336 4:09PM
Oh man, Baked Potato Soup. My favorite!! - LuvsTigger  651.8 #241 2:50PM
First of all CONGRATS on the 39lb loss!  That's awesome!  I LOVE the pic in the lower left hand corner ("that's the same as a Wheaten Terrier"). Is that an app?  I have many favorite places...MUST do Hungry Bear and Bengal BBQ (Fried Green Tomato sandwich and chicken & veggie kabobs).  My favorite "bad" things are white chocolate covered pretzels, popcorn, toffee and giant cookies! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 7:51PM
Thank you!! It is a website, called ilostwhat.com It's fun to see what they compare your weight loss too. Thanks for your suggestions! - LuvsTigger  651.8 #241 12:49PM
That website is awesome!  I've lost 30 lbs this year - that's the amount of cheese the average person eats each year (I like yours better!).  I wish it was an app! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 11:44PM

I've had a very bad few weeks emotionally, gained 3.5 pounds last week, and have had a hard time getting things together. I didn't weigh in yet, but I did measure myself. Since I started riding my bike I lost 3 inches off my hips and 2 inches off my waist. I'm going to weigh in to weigh in tomorrow. I've had a good week staying on plan with my diet. I'm not riding my bike. I can't do it ye  More...

You're in my thoughts every day!  I'm so sad for you, but I know you'll make it through this.  Your puppy will help a lot.  BTW - that's awesome about the inches lost! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 7:53PM
That is sooooo awesome that you've lost inches--you are very strong to be able to continue eating well and measure at a time like this!  Good job!  I have had four dogs pass away over the course of my life, and three of those four were unexpected, sudden losses--although I don't know exactly how you feel, I know how hard it is to have to experience that kind of a loss.  It's devastating, a part of the family is gone--but life keeps moving forward and people can choose to move with it.  Your new family member will bring you such joy--it will not replace Oscar, but it will fill a different kind of space in your hearts--one that you didn't even realize you had 😊 I'm so excited for your new adventure!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 9:48PM

I'm not doing very well. I'm so sad and very unmotivated. I'm having a hard time with everything. I'm losing desire. I don't know how to pull myself out of this. I don't know if I can.

Just think, soon you'll have a new little puppy to chase around. And of course he'll never replace the one you've lost but now you get to creat new memories with the new little guy.  - MXPrincess399  631.8 #256 9:26PM
Life is a series of ups and downs.  You suffered a huge blow, but you'll get through it!  You have to be strong for your girls too!  If they're like most kids, I'm sure it hurts them to see you sad.  You can do this!   - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 7:55PM

Interesting.  Call me silly, but I thought that the ice cream that they served was their own!  I guess just the toppings.  Do they offer any sugar free varieties (although if you're going to do it why bother!). - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 8:44PM
No that I know of at the park. So i will short my calories on breakfast to get a scoop as a treat. - Plumiegirl  7675.3 #3 12:42AM
That's so smart.  I don't focus on calories (because I'm on Jenny Craig so it's already thought out for you), but when I get off eventually I need to remember to allow for these trade-offs! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 7:58PM

I need a pep talk!  I've totally blown the diet for the past week!  I really thought I had the mental part of this down, and I'm not sure what happened..I just woke up one morning and didn't feel like it.  I think it has something to do with being out of work - it was awesome in the beginning - now it's just starting to feel like "being out of work".  I MUST get it back togethe  More...

You've been doing so well, don't beat yourself up about it. Take it one meal or one snack at a time. Everyone goes through a funk. You've had a lot going on. Hang in there.  - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #336 12:10PM
You have done great this year! Can you mix up your meals at all?  Sometimes, I feel like trying different foods, veggies, fruits, seasonings, and spices helps me stay on track.  I get really bored otherwise.  Can you sub a big salad or something that's equivalent in calories and fat with real yummy ingredients for one of the Jenny meals?   If all else fails, keep in mind that you'll be at the Grand at the end of summer, and Joey Lawrence might be there again, so you'll want to look your best, lol!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 12:16PM
here is goes, every day is another chance to get it right, start over, or begin again. Start again. Tell yourself to eat clean because unless you make it, it will be impossible to find over the counter unless you have a special place to get healthy foods. I am on the eve of a probable cancer diagnosis and I put myself cold turkey on a diet and I already mentally feel better. Damn I am hungry but I want the best health around what I am going to be facing. So try again and be happy.  - Plumiegirl  7675.3 #3 8:50PM
First, it's SO good to see you post over here Plumie!  Second, I'm very sorry to hear about your possible health issues.  The ladies of Chub33 are here to give morale support with everything...including your diet!  Lastly, thank you for your comments.  Words to live by (and remember)!   - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 3:54PM
Hi Plumie, I just wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about your possible health issue.  Definitely hoping for the best possible scenario for you ✨✨✨✨  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 9:55AM
at spoonful O sugar, It happened I have breast cancer stage 2 and am scared to death. I am still dieting just to be healthy going into this scary surgery and treatment. No family history of this, perfect health until now, why? - Plumiegirl  7675.3 #3 12:45AM
Nooooo!  I'm so sorry to read this Plumie! We're all here for you.  Be strong...try to stay positive and post often so we know what's going on!  You'll beat this (as so many women who have come before you). It won't be easy, but with faith, trust and pixie dust, you'll be okay.  No one can answer the "why" question.  I know it's hard and scary, but just try to focus on getting better and making this horrible disease go away...for good!  I'll be thinking of you!  Hugs!!!! - msdizmaui  582.0 #286 2:29AM
I'm so sorry to hear, Plumie.  You are very strong--hold onto your hope through this and know that the fact that all these years of good health give you extra ammunition against it.  Picture the cancer as little and weak and visualize your healthy, stronger body winning the battle.  💖💪🎀 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 8:53AM

I used to weigh only once a week.  Then I thought that if I weigh daily, it might keep me on track better.  WRONG.  I did everything to plan yesterday (including exercise) and gained 1/2 lb!   I can't help that I'm a numbers person.  I'm going back to once a week so I don't freak out on a daily basis!  How often does everyone else weigh?

When I was in my early 20s, I used to weigh every day, but as I got older, I realized I was too preoccupied with the numbers.  Currently, I haven't weighed in months--I threw our scale out when I moved, lol.  I have a range I know I'm in (based on the fact that my clothes fit better than they did last winter and I'm running regularly).  It's probably better to weigh regularly, but I gotta say, it's pretty liberating not feeling like I need to know the exact number and just concentrating on eating well and exercising.  If anyone finds a nice balance, I'd love to hear more!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  509.5 #343 10:13AM
I've done both. Now I weigh in 2 or 3 times a week.  When I did weigh in daily the small ups and downs messed with my head too much. I'm too impatient to wait a full week.  - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #336 10:28AM
every day and some days it goes up even though I stay on my calories. The next day it will drop. So it is your body refused to change and the it has to. - Plumiegirl  7675.3 #3 12:40AM
I am using a fit bit with the arid wifi scale so when I weigh it updates the program. Very cool and easy. - Plumiegirl  7675.3 #3 12:41AM
