  1. 1. Thank God 2. Pay off all my bills, all my families and friend's bills, and donate to charities. 3. Retire and travel!!!
  2. Congratualations Suzila!!! Have a great time in the Big Apple!! Have a safe trip!! Give us details on the big day when you get back!!
  3. I didn't get the job. I didn't expect to since it wasn't what I was applying for anyway. I was applying for a lower management position not a director's position over 80 + people including offices in other states and countries including Isreal and India. I'm not too hyped over the international travel with two little boys at home. She did tell me they are going to have a bunch more positions opening up in July and August. If my employer does go through more layoffs and I get laid off, she said that I'm guaranteed a job there and not to worry. She can guarantee me the same pay but a position that is not as high as the one I currently have. She said I would move up quick though. That was comforting to know that at least there was something to fall back on if we do go through another round of layoffs. We went through two since January.
  4. I'm jealous!!! Have a great time!!! Which shouldn't be a problem!!! :grin:

  7. Congrats, Karen!!!!!! I'm glad you've joined us!!!
  8. :smiley: Yeah. I have that problem too sometimes. My drier is having problems. It's getting heat but the clothes aren't drying. The lint is cleaned out. It's less than a year old. UGHHHH! I hate laundry!
  9. It's safer to carry it with you. I researched that before my trip as well. You can tell them you have film. It's also better to have lower speed film too versus the really high film if I remember correctly. The machines that xray your carry on luggage isn't as high as the machines that your other luggage goes through from what I was told.
  10. 25 pounds since January? Wow! Great job and great determination! I think you will make it. Just remember one important piece of advice. When you hit a plateau and can't get any lower, you just need to change "something". This can be something as simple as the type of exercise you are doing. If you are using a treadmill, try switching to an eliptical or change the frequency of the treadmill, for instance. If you are use to 30 minutes a day 3 times a week. Try 20 minutes a day 4 or 5 days a week. Or 20 minutes twice a day 3 times a week. You just need to "wake" your body up with a change. This always works for me and my friends on plateaus. For my friends that don't exercise at all, they do a one or two week diet change and then come back. Usually a dramatic drop in carbs or fat for one or two weeks and then continue as normal to "wake" up their bodies to get over the plateau and then they can continue to lose weight. Do not do these things unless you have hit a plateau which to me would be no weight loss in two weeks without cheating. Good luck with that. I think you will be just as happy with your new body as your hubby will. I'm 5'4 too and when I lost my 45 pounds, it was fun buying all the cute clothes again. It is much easier to keep it off then it is to lose it so once you get down to your goal weight, it'll be much easier on you to maintain it.
  11. Thanks! My giraffe looks kind of goofy but I love giraffes so I don't care. Makes my posts a little more interesting to look at. Karen- Only 4 more posts and you'll have an ocean view cabin as well!! Lets see you get upgraded today!!!
