Dave, I saw this on Facebook and sent you a PM but it probably went to your "others" folder. Congratulations!!! Lifestyle change is tough and you look amazing, strong and healthy!! I'm so happy for you!

Thank you for sharing Dave, very inspirational.  I've started eating healthy just this past month because I feel finally settled in at work, and I need something more sustainable for my 10 hour shifts. It's so easy to just grab something unhealthy but we've done a lot of replacing foods in our house for healthier options. I even had the ultimate test when I went to DL last week.  Darn brownie cupcake called my name so loud, but cravings pass or you just have a little. My Drs I'm working with have told me to look at food as a bad relationship that you don't want to go back to. That seems to work for me since I'm an emotional eater. You've shared your story before and I just want to let you know you've inspired me again. Next time I see you you're getting the biggest goat smelling hug ever. LOL - MrsSchnooks  2985.5 #38 6:55AM

Good luck! Eating healthy is something we all need to do. It makes us feel better. Thanks for sharing too! - RadiatorSprings4Ever  987.4 #165 7:26AM
hopefully you wont smell like goats this time either :) - Dave   12206.8 #2 11:26AM
 Dave I always smell like goats! LOL Can we go to BTR and you can do the Ode to MrsSchnooks and her goats? You can hug the goats! My fave birthday party moment this year! You're the best! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MrsSchnooks  2985.5 #38 10:28PM
@Dave you are such an inspiration I remember always reading your posts and thinking I was doing the same things but not feeling like any one understood. I as well as you have chosen the lifestyle change and am down now over 40lbs. I think rundisney had a lot to do with my success. But thank you for all the support you have given me through what you share and the encouragement through IG. You rock buddy!!

A place where you can paint your own ceramics. They then glaze and fire it  - MXPrincess399  714.1 #230 4:02PM
Is this affiliated with Disney?  I'm still confused.  Those look like "real" characters!  (we had one of those types of places in our mall but it only lasted maybe 6 months). - msdizmaui  634.7 #276 8:11PM
Nope, I don't think it's affiliated with Disney, but they do parties with Disney themes all the time. They have an Ariel and Capt. Jack one coming up. Lol  - MXPrincess399  714.1 #230 2:40PM

"Bag of Many Sizes"...I love it. 

How did the interview go?  Congrats on the new size. :) - Mrs.mouse  517.2 #360 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  634.7 #276 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  634.7 #276 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  569.4 #318 10:18PM

Yesterday was an awesome Saturday.  I finished everything that I was supposed to at work, didn't get yelled at by a single customer (the previous days this week hit an all time high in that category), AND topped it off with a great walk in the park with my son!  My weekend starts now! - msdizmaui  634.7 #276 1:21PM
You work for a cell phone store, right?  Customer service is always tough, but I bet that's an especially "interesting" area...people are so weird about their phones!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.4 #318 4:39PM
Yes, I manage a Sprint store.  I was a bank manager for many years - even when I turned down loans or refused to cash checks, I never had customers yell at me like they do now!  People are SO emotional when it comes to their phones.  Our favorite is "I use my phone for business and I'm losing thousands of dollars....", and they're wearing shorts/t-shirt and rubber slippers (and the phone doesn't ring once while we have it in for repair).  Crazy! - msdizmaui  634.7 #276 3:33PM

I was sick earlier this week, so that has slowed my loss this week. I'm hoping that I have some loss.  - Mrs.mouse  517.2 #360 5:19PM

I'm skipping them this year as I spent so much $$$doing Tink weekend. I might volunteer though. I've never volunteered for any of the Disney runs before but I think it would be a great experience. I'd also like to volunteer to help out in the Sparkle Skirt booth at the expo. 

I'm going to do both races, but I won't get the DDD medal.  I'm excited!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.4 #318 6:12AM

It's Labor Day weekend, and you can sign up for email reminders from the RunDisney website.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  569.4 #318 8:12PM
All sold out, so there go the plans to plan the once a year big vacation around it (awwww, darn).  Of course I've never even made it to the early morning walk around DCA, so I didn't like my chances! - msdizmaui  634.7 #276 3:28PM
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  569.4 #318 11:26AM

Good for you!  Simple Start sounds like a great plan.  The thing I don't like about WW is the points.  I don't want to work that hard (I know that it gets easy, but there's nothing as simple as taking a JC meal out of the freezer...totally a no brainer)! - msdizmaui  634.7 #276 3:10PM
