Day 2 in San Diego and I'm proud to say that I stayed on plan...even at In N Out (of course I don't eat meat so that helped!).
Yay congrats!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.3 #343 11:24PM

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  515.0 #333 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  630.8 #253 7:30AM
That's great!  Wow, a 13 min mile walking is impressive--that's sometimes my jogging pace!  Great job!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.3 #343 10:48AM

4th time seeing Maleficent tonight!  It's still showing in 2 theaters, and there was a good crowd, so I'm thinking we'll be able to see it at least 2 more times!  LOVE it!

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  505.3 #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  515.0 #333 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  7641.8 #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  7641.8 #3 12:41AM

I have a photo request...we're considering doing the Fantasmic Dessert package, but I can't figure out where the seats are.  It would be great if someone could take a pic of the location for me!  Mahalo!

40 years ago today I graduated from Venice High school and attended Grad night in my required pant suit! Check out the price back then!
It was 900 dollars. Glad the prices came down - puddy77  168.4 #2246 9:22PM
I went about 20 years after you did, but it was still the same.  We were told that if we weren't dressed appropriately we would be taken to a wardrobe trailer and given/loaned clothes for the evening.  I think I wore a hat everyday in H.S. and no hats were allowed at grad night.  As soon as we went through the gates we bought grad night hats(they were bright purple) and that was OK.  I'm sure the kids today still have a good time, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to experience it the old way.  It's kind of funny, as I was typing all this I had a song running through my head, I looked it up and it was one of the bands that played on grad night. - Mikeymedic  272.8 #984 5:11PM
My pant suit was yellow (no idea what I was thinking).  Right after we went in I had grape juice at the little stand in the old Fantasyland.  My cup had a leak and I got to walk around all night with grape juice down the front of my yellow jacket!  They gave me a voucher to have it cleaned!  Memories! - msdizmaui  577.8 #284 7:15PM
We had to dress up too. All the girls wore skirts or dresses with stockings and the guys had to wear blazers! Teenagers behave better when dressed up, or so they hoped! - happiestplace  94.5 #3418 9:43PM
@mikeymedic @msdizmaui  @breath_in_the_happiness I share many of the same memories...and even worked my share of grad nights... msdiz...that was Welches Grape Juice... near where the Frozen meet n greet is today... I worked that stand for a few weeks in '77 so I'm off the hook for the leaky cup๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‡ - MickeyLumboCM  381.9 #494 9:45PM

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  515.0 #333 12:10PM
You have done great this year! Can you mix up your meals at all? ย Sometimes, I feel like trying different foods, veggies, fruits, seasonings, and spices helps me stay on track. ย I get really bored otherwise. ย Can you sub a big salad or something that's equivalent in calories and fatย with real yummy ingredients for one of the Jenny meals? ย  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! ย  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.3 #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.ย  - Plumiegirl  7641.8 #3 8:50PM

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  7641.8 #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  577.8 #284 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.  ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŽ€ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.3 #343 8:53AM

Maleficent in 3D was awesome!  Loved the story, loved Angelina and loved being surprised with the different ending.  Wicked started the trend and I'm sure that we're going to see many more re-makes from the Villian's point of view.  Which would you like to see next?!?

Just read another article about "secrets" in the parks. This one said that there are still paintbrushes hidden on Tom Sawyer's Island, and if you find one, you can give it to a CM in exchange for a Fast Pass to any attraction. Any truth to this?
No CMs out there with any words of wisdom? Anyone? - msdizmaui  577.8 #284 8:13PM
No, it's not true.  It's like the "Andy's Coming" rumor.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2015.3 #53 8:21PM
You and I should plant some fake paint brushes there to keep the rumor going - philliprocks   727.7 #201 8:25PM

So I suppose that the skull and cross bones on the wall above the headboard in the POTC bedroom scene aren't real like the article also stated? - msdizmaui  577.8 #284 2:57AM
The skull and cross bones are indeed real. I work the attraction and have touched them personally. - CM_Shadowgamer  2306.7 #45 1:03AM
Actually, the story was true at one time, at least in Florida. They used to hide the brushes and give fast passes out, but groups decided to take the brushes as keepsakes instead and they got tired of having to replace them so stopped doing it. - CM_Shadowgamer  2306.7 #45 1:05AM
