Thanks all for ht Happy Birthday greeting last week!
I have been completely side tracked on life since we found out we are...PREGNANT!!
It is a miracle I am keeping eyes open at this point. Everyone please send me an update on how you are...Suzanne, Necee, Wendy, Carol, Kathy...anyone I have forgotten. I would like to hear how everyone is feeling. Also has anyone heard from Laurie R.?

Congrats to you Carmen!!! I know you are very excited!!!

Oh, how very exciting, Carmen! =D> =D> =D> Now my lunch will taste better! (I am eating my Healthy Choice meal while checking on e-mails and thought I'd drop in and see if there were any new posts.) I am so happy for you and your husband.

Take care, @};-

Carmen, how wonderful! You are right; a baby is indeed a miracle. It's the one miracle that kind of makes up for a lot of the less exciting parts of life, don't you think? I know you will take wonderful care of him or her, while you are pregnant.

How are you feeling? I hope you have an easy pregnancy, and that your feet are still doing well. How many animals do you have by now? :)

Don't forget to pay attention to your feet while you are expecting, so you can walk pain-free with baby in a few months. You have an advantage in that you know what foot problems feel like and you know what to do at the slightest twinge. So, you can 'head them off at the pass' (foot problems, that is).

Here's the update on me. My feet are doing really well. I am back to riding my exercycle, and I have worked up to 2 miles in 10 minutes yesterday, which is a lot for me. Today my knees are protesting a little, but my FEET feel FINE! I think that wearing my custom orthotics while I ride, and being careful to ride with 'good form' made all the difference. I've lost 16.2 pounds since January 3rd with Weight Watchers. So, that about sums up my life recently. LOL Oh, and also Frank is coming to visit over Mardi Gras later this month.

Welcome back!

Good for you to choose Healthy Choice! I can tell that you are eating wisely. I don't always, but lately I've been working on that. I am eating a green salad with boiled shrimp on top and fat free Italian dressing, along with a fat free yogurt for dessert today. I love shrimp. :)

I said, 'I know you will take wonderful care of him or her, while you are pregnant.'

I didn't just mean while you are pregnant! Of COURSE you will take wonderful care of your baby, always. I was just thinking about the next few months when I wrote that.

Congratulations on the wonderful news! I can't think of anything nicer! Enjoy the pregnancy and relish the true miracle that's taking place. When my niece was pregnant, I once again was able to marvel at the miracle of birth!

Thanks for sharing the news!

Re: Necee...Suzanne, kathy, carol etc.thanks!

Suzanne D. on 2/03/04 at 15:33 (143564)

Thanks for the encouragement, Carole! I eat a bowl of Total cereal every morning for breakfast and then either Healthy Choice or Lean Cuisine for lunch. I've been trying to bring a banana with me for my after school hunger attack, but then at night is when I want to eat more of what I want when I am at home! I am going to have to do better about that area.

Weight gain for me has been very gradual, but it is there, and it is not going away. And I think I have a metabolism that is about as slow as syrup. After awhile, it's going to get the best of me, so I am trying some new strategies. I have all the more respect for dieters now!

I like shrimp, too! But I like the breaded, deep-fried kind. And I wish I liked salads, but I just don't. I have to load them up with so many other things to kill the lettuce taste that it defeats the purpose of eating them! :D

Congratulations on your weight loss and sticking to your plan!

Suzanne :)

Congratulations to you, too, Rekha! =D> I hope your feet hold up well during your pregnancy. This is a special time in your life; cherish it. That may sound odd to you now, but you will understand later, I think.

Take care!

Congratulations Carmen, I am very, very happy for you. This pregnancy thing is contagious (both on this board and in my office).

I will get in touch with you in a few days. I have not heard from Laurie, but I also wonder how she is doing.
