I would like to echo what @Admin has said above. This will be the 2nd Bday Bash I've fully attended, even though I attended a Buzz meetup during 2012 & I'm so glad that I have. I personally have made lifetime friendships & by attending these events have been able to share both laughter & tears in person with these great people. I travel approx 700 miles to attend these events & I look forward to spending time with my MW friends & meeting many more in the future - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1176.6 #112 8:40PM

I just tried the link again from my email. I found that if I clicked directly above the red square for the ticket store.with the arrow, and not ON the arrow, a web site flashed on the bottom of my screen. so I clicked when it flashed and my curser was above the red square and not in it. It then took me to the ticket store. That might be the problem for others also. Thank you for the link and your efforts to help everyone attend!!! - snowgrey  4.5 #17455 6:37PM

I've had a great 10 days. I lost the 2 pounds I gained on the girls cruise (worth it) and lost an additional 1.4 pounds. I'm only 6.6 pounds away from a big milestone, 30 pounds. I'm only 4 pounds away from being the lightest I've been in almost 4 years.

Whoo Hoo!  Good for you!  Loved your cruise pics BTW...looks like you had a great time! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 11:49PM

I am happy to report that I am once again gainfully employed!  I start my new position with Wyndham Vacation Ownership on Wednesday (no, I'm not selling timeshare...I'll be doing the contracts and closing the deals).  A cool benefit is that there are offices everywhere...including Anaheim and San Diego!  

Congratulations! I hope everything works out for you. - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 11:48AM
That's wonderful, MDM!  Congratulations!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 1:16PM
Thank you ladies!  The thought of going back to work has me depressed.  It's actually been nice not working the past 5 months, but I knew that it had to end. - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 3:40PM
I understand.  My hubby was out of work for about 9 months, and while it was of course tough financially, it was so nice being able to spend so much time together.  I got so used to him being home when I got off work, and going for runs or to movies or out to dinner all the time--now I come home to an empty house, and its lonely, lol.  He has a really long commute, so he's gone 11-12 hours a day now.  I wish it was possible to work 5-6 hours a day and still be able to make a good living, haha.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 11:29PM
My commute is going to be around 30 min each way and you should hear me grumble about it!  It's not that bad, but there is only one road in/out of that side of the island (Lahaina), so if there's an accident or a brush fire, you're stuck!  Oh well...usually only hapens 2 or 3 x's a year. - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:35PM
I'm so excited for you!  When do you start?   - Mrs.mouse  515.8 #346 7:01PM
I started today.  Not sure how I'm going to like it. The bosses from Oahu were here so it was a strange day.  Also discovered that even though I've said that I don't want to manage people, I still feel like a manager and it's sort of weird (I'll get over that part).  I let you know if I like it in a week or so - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 11:52PM

I only lost .6 pounds this week. I'm super disappointed.

Don't be disappointed your losing not gaining.  - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 12:18PM

How is everyone doing?

Fairly decent...how about you?  I've lost 5 of the 8 lbs I gained in my week at DLR (and the week after I got back!).  Almost back at my DLR weight and then on to the last 4 to make my goal once and for all! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 8:50PM
Great job on getting back  to your weigh loss. I'm doing well I took a week off after run Disneyland half now time to get back into things need to focus on loosing some weight. Have a great week - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 9:23AM
Doing well, thanks!  Just kinda plugging along with life, lol.  Had a cold so I haven't been running much but I've been walking with my dog--it's nice to slow down a little bit and enjoy life. :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 4:50PM
Glad all is well! Are you doing any Disney runs that are coming up? - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 5:28PM
Hoping for Star Wars and Tink, but not registered yet!  Life and schedules are really up in the air right now.  Sigh... Really hoping to get to DL during Halloweentime, though!  Good news is that I tried on a pencil skirt that I couldn't zip up last spring, and now it fits!  Pretty happy about that.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 8:15PM
Congrats on fitting into your skirt! I'm going to run tink 10k. I wish I had singed up for half but I can always do it next time! I hope your able to make it to DL for Halloween time - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 9:54AM

My niece and I had such a fun weekend.

She doesn't look so happy in the pic...lol!   - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 3:03PM
She hates having her picture taken!  All the good ones I got this weekend where random shots! Lol - MXPrincess399  639.3 #260 7:22PM
So sweet--she looks like she wants to trade medals, lol.  Just curious, did you carry Flounder and Sebastian the whole way, or did they attach to your costume?    I love how you are matching Ariels :) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 9:30PM
I carried them the whole way. But when we were out of the parks I had them stuffed in the pockets of my sparkle skirt. I just pulled them out when I saw the cameras.  - MXPrincess399  639.3 #260 5:49AM

Here's a happy one. She loved meeting the Princesses and showing off her medal.

😱 Oh how precious!  That's what it's all about, right there.  So glad you are making these memories with her--she's gonna remember this stuff and it'll set the foundation for healthy, active living as she grows up.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 9:27PM
That's the plan. Lol. My brother-in-law is overweight and my sisters not very active so my mom and I decided that we will be the ones to put her in sports.  - MXPrincess399  639.3 #260 5:50AM

Oh ladies....I've had nothing but sad news since I returned from DLR.  My cousin, who's the same age as me passed away unexpectedly on Friday after a short battle with internal melanoma.  Then yesterday, our Veterinarian called and let me know that a small tumor that they removed (while he was boarded) turned out to be melanoma!  I need some cyber hugs and pixie dust...

Oh my goodness, MDM, I am so very sorry!  What a strange coincidence.  Big, huge hugs to you--and, I'm sending lots of pixie dust and positive thoughts your way, and a big hug to Pono as well (hope I spelled that right).  How is he feeling at the moment?   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 6:55PM

Yeah, you really have to plan ahead for the races.  It took us 5 years to get it together for the one last year, lol.  There are other ways, though.  My husband found a travel agent from another message board who had some 10K bibs for Tink, and we bought those in December, months after that race had sold out on RunDisney.  You can also sign up through a charity group, too.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 11:26AM

Back at home and totally depressed!  I actually weighed this morning....drumroll...gained 5 lbs but not worried.  I'm going back to Jenny and I'm sure it'll come back off (and I throughly enjoyed every bite!).

I'm sure it was worth it - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1176.6 #112 5:02PM

Day 2 at the park started with breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen. I'm SO not used to eating real food (I didn't even eat that much!). Now I'm back in the room with a sore stomach....gonna take it ez from now on!

Aw cute!!  So sorry you had a little tummy upset.  I know how that goes.  Feel better!  (Oh, and ginger is supposed to help a queasy tummy, so you might try a little ginger ale if you can find it anywhere.  I don't know if it's really the ginger or just the bubbles, but it seems to help me).  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 8:10PM

It's almost time for Disneyland half marathon!! Is everyone ready?

So wish that I could do one of these...not sure about the half marathon.  I think I'm only a 5k kind of gal! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 10:33PM

Sadly, we made the decision today to not go due to work commitments (Hubby started a new job recently and the next three weeks were already going to be nearly impossible for me to escape for a few days).  Oh well, it happens...we are excited for the Star Wars runs in January though, so hopefully that works out!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 9:01PM
I'm sorry! Things happen for a reason. I hope you can run in January. Did you sing up for Tinkerbell run? - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 6:44PM
Thanks, yes, we have a lot on our plates right now, and you're right: these things happen for reasons we're not aware of!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 8:18PM
I am doing the 10k this year (upgrading from the 5k the past two years). I'm ready to GO! I've been hiking, walking, jogging, and have lost some extra lbs doing so!  - lovetheland7  168.4 #2268 11:07AM

Hi, everyone! Long time, no "see" :) I hope you are all doing well. I need to get back in to healthy habits again. I do so much better when I have accountability and you all have always helped me. I was curious if there was a "CHUB33" Facebook group or an Interest in one? The MW app/website can be hard to use sometimes and I thought a closed, private group might work well. What do you all think?

Welcome back!  I'd be into a FB page.  Keep us posted! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:36PM
Great! I'm sending you a DM. :) - Fanatic4Disney  267.3 #1056 10:41PM

I have opened up my security settings so you might be able to request me now. It won't let me request either of you. Facebook makes it hard to create a group! I have to have someone on my friends list that wants to be in the group to create it.  - Fanatic4Disney  267.3 #1056 12:58PM

Has anyone ever heard of or tried the Paleo diet?  It seems good, only I don't cook so I'm not sure how I'd do on it.  Anyone have any luck with it?

I've looked into it--it seems like the basic premise makes sense to me (eat clean foods and avoid processed, sugary, refined stuff because we aren't evolutionarily adapted to handle the Standard American Diet).  I'd say my husband and I eat "Paleoish" pretty often, and I do feel better when I reduce the junk.  I am reluctant to fully follow any diet 100% though.  It did look like a lot of food prep to me, but I think you can follow the diet without having to constantly make full meals.  It's an interesting concept--maybe ask your doctor what he/she thinks?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 8:07AM
I was thinking the same as you.  Pretty much common sense.  But following it to the letter long-term would be very difficult, if not impossible I think.  No breads or pasta ever?  I have friends who just started on it.  Not thinking that it'll last, but as long as they just give up processed foods, sugar and all the dairy, they'll probably lose a lot.  I'm now planning on staying with Jenny until the end of the year.  Not 3 meals a day, but at least a presence.  That's what I never did in the past.  I'd hit my goal and then stop cold turkey! - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 2:52PM
Yeah, I agree.  Eating clean and balanced meals most, but not 100%, of the time works best for me.  I mean, my favorite chain restaurant is the Olive Garden, lol 😂 There's no way I could just give up all my favorite foods forever unless I had a health issue that made it necessary or I was an actress getting paid millions to look a certain way.  Glad that Jenny is working well and that you decided to stay with it for maintenance purposes.  I think that's a really good idea!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 3:50PM
Hi ladies! You can say I follow a paleo diet. I'm 7 months of no bread, pasta, sugar and dairy. I love it. I think sugar was the hardest. You have withdraw and act like a huge b****. It's true! Pasta wasn't as hard as I thought. I use to have pasta 4-5 times a week so yes it was a bit tough at first but I think if you think long term it's totally worth it. My love handles are gone. If you do some research you find that pasta and bread stick to midsection and that can be very dangerous. Once in awhile I'll eat tortillas but it's rare. What I did is I have 1/2 cup of brown rice. Not everyday but sometime. If you love pasta which I do, I found brown rice pasta. It's seriously delicious or as I've seen I want to buy spinach pssta👍. Dairy wasn't tough either. I drink almond either and no longer have any gas or bloated ever.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  684.5 #234 12:08PM
I love the food I eat. It really changes your perspective of food. Before I'd eat for the great flavor but had ton of fat that isn't good for your body. I eat to give my body energy and treat myself on the weekend with one something  yummy like pasta at a resturaunt or sushi and ond treat. I look forward to it. I see it as work hard on the weekday and have fun on the weekend. My belly fat has gone down too. I do eat Greek yogurt for that (the only dairy) and drink lots of green tea. Green tea and Greek yogurt (no sugar) helps with the belly fat.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  684.5 #234 12:13PM
I take my health more serious especially since my dad two weeks ago had a triple bypass surgery. It's really scary. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  684.5 #234 12:14PM
Oh and I don't feel sluggish. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  684.5 #234 12:15PM
Sounds like you've got it down!  My friend is experimenting with Almond flour (to bread things) and already is into the spaghetti squash and zucchini "pasta".  I like the idea of a treat day.  I'll probably go back to that (and I find that when you're good all week, you really don't want to "blow" it like you thought that you would).  Only drawback to Paleo for me...I don't cook!  Although I guess that I could live on roasted veggies (which I LOVE) and ground turkey patties!   - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 2:45PM
You sound like my husband and I!  Haha, we do pretty much the same things, but occasionally go out to eat or have a treat.  Bread is hard to give up completely, but we don't eat much of it any more.  We buy only Greek yogurt, no cow milk, etc.  We do eat string cheese and feta occasionally, though, and occasionally, I get cream for coffee (though I really shouldn't).  We are very strict during Lent (no alcohol, sugar, or white starches), but relax a little more during the year.  You are so disciplined!  I feel great during Lent, and always consider sticking to it for longer, but I eventually cave, lol 😂  I figure I do a good job 95% of the time, and that other 5% does make me happy.  Someday I might get more strict.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 5:15PM

Super frustrating day! I was supposed to do a 10 mile run, and I just wasn't feeling it, pretty much from the word "go." Maybe it was just the thought of a double digit run, lol. Just the first quarter mile felt like a struggle--my body felt like lead! But I pushed through, for the next few miles. I got fed up and texted my husband at mile 5-- he is great at sending motivating messages so that  More...

OMG!  I blame it all on the wasp.  I can relate - even though you're light years ahead of me with your double digit runs!  The other morning I got up to walk with the intention of doing 4+ miles.  Just like you, I wasn't feeling it.  I kept changing the music and giving myself pep talks but didn't work.  Went home at 3.  Tomorrow is another day.... - msdizmaui  623.1 #272 4:36PM
Yes, it is--at least we both got out there and did something, even if it wasn't all that we had planned!  Man, I don't think I've ever been stung by a wasp and it's been at least a decade and a half since I've had a bee sting...they HURT!  My leg is sore tonight!  I'm glad I decided to head home because I might have ended up with a swollen leg or some weird reaction if I had tried to run another four miles. What a disaster, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 10:54PM
And, "tomorrow is another day"--for as many personality faults as she had, Scarlett can sure teach all of us a thing or two about perseverance and survival!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 12:25PM
I'm glad you're ok that's awful! I know how you feel you just have to tell yourself keep going you can do this. - disneyland4me  240.5 #1339 6:15PM
Thank you!  Yes, all was fine, and I'm very grateful that I'm not allergic!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 5:37PM
I'm sorry you had a bad time. What works for me is to take each mile at a time. So instead of thinking of the whole run in your mind, tell yourself you can do the first mile and focus fully on that mile. Then do the same for each additional mile. It's a mental thing and when I work out and say I can't do it, I stop at that moment.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  684.5 #234 11:55AM
Thank you!  I agree--the struggle is usually mental, rather than physical.  One mile at a time is great advice (sometimes, I literally have to take it one step at a time, haha!) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 12:23PM
Update: went out for my 10 miler today, and everything went great--no bees today, lol!  Beat my time goal by 3 minutes, too!    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  527.1 #336 12:23PM
