<span style="font-size:xx-small;"><span>shhh, make sure nobody finds us and scolds us... <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"></span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><span>I was supposed to get down to 121.5 for today but due to a hard run yesterday and some obvious dehydration, I'm at 120. This is ridiculous, as I was at 122.5 a couple days before. So I don't have any meaningful results. I'll set my March 31 goal at 121, but probably won't be able to check in until April 7 (goal = 120.5). Carry on, everyone!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><span>I have names of others on the list but won't type them here -- check in if you want.</span></span><br><br>

...Just a brief hijack with no mention of food or recipes...<br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">So, my friend, Econo, is the quintessential professor. A year or so ago, I was telling her about DS1's interest in economics and government and how I wish I had some information to share with him, etc.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Not one to miss a "teaching moment", Econo refers me to a book I should recommend to DS1. She says it's about a lawyer who shakes up Wall Street, etc.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">When I couldn't find the book at Booksamillion, Econo, always helpful Econo, <i>sends</i> Joe (DS1) the book!</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">"What a nice friend!", thinks I. "She will be a mentor to my son." "How lucky are we to know Econo."</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Joe begins to read the book, but, his senioritis takes charge and he only reads the first few chapters before putting it on the shelf. This was last year.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">I asked him what he thought about what he read. He tells me he thought the guy was a little arrogant and full of himself but, he did do a lot.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">We don't talk about this again and the book still sits on his bookshelf in his room here at home after he moves out to Blacksburg and into his dorm.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Lilmissrosie and Joe came home for Easter this weekend. We had a grand time, although times always goes too fast when they come home.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">We had a big family Easter meal at my little sister's house yesterday. After food and cleaning up and talking and this and that. Some of us sit down to play a game "Luck of the Draw" Sort of pictionary and apples to apples game. Pretty simple and conducive to chatting between rounds.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">One of the players had to leave, so Joe sat down beside me, his lovely mother, and the game continues.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Then, for some reason, Joe says, "Hey Mom. Remember that book you made me read, that one your friend Econo recommended?"</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">I said, "Yes, I do remember."</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Joe gets a huge grin on his face and chuckles a bit. "Do you know who it was about?"</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">"No, I don't recall the guy's name."</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">Joe says, "Eliot Spitzer."</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">The whole table cracks up.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">So we just wanted to say, "Thanks for grins and chuckles, Professor Econo."</span></span><br><br><span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="color:#0000FF;">But seriously, we do appreciate your contributions to Joe's education. He is thrilled with his economics classes and is happy to be pursuing his degree in your field.</span></span>

<b><span>hijacking own thread</span></b><br><span><span style="color:#000000;">LOL! Yeah, I thought of that book when Mr. Spitzer shot himself in the foot. And was wondering what DS1 thought of the whole, uh,</span> <span>affair</span><span style="color:#000000;">.</span></span><br>

No FOOD talk!<br>
No BOOK talk!<br><br>
But, for those reading those unlawful posts. Rosie once sent ME a book I had been asking about. I am still reading it :^)<br><br>
No weigh in for me today, as I headed for the pool instead of the bathroom. Tomorrow for sure. But it won't be pretty, after Easter weekend, and this morning we had an engineering meeting with coffee and muffins. TWO muffins!<br><br>
But my weekly mileage was 22M!! First time over 20M since Feb 3rd.<br><br>

I'm checking in today but won't be able to weigh in until tomorrow. I only use the scale at the gym (don't own one) and tomorrow is one of my gym days.<br><br>
I have been more careful about food choices this past week. I haven't been denying myself anything, but have been cutting back. We'll see tomorrow if it's paid off at all or if I need to cutback even more.

snork! OK, Pro, we don't want to hear about your potty problems any more.<br><br>
Rosy, why are you wearing a colander? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Is this the weigh in thread? or the potty-talk book club thread?? Geez...Econo's hijacking her own thread even. What's this place coming to?<br><br>
AHEM, back to business. Whoever decided to do a weigh-in day the day after Easter should be soundly spanked.<br>
Starting weight: 143<br>

One advantage of being really overweight is that the pounds come off quicker..... you should try it sometime <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

Ok, no pool today, so I stumbled into the bathroom instead, and got a preshower weight. Not great, I was tempted to try again after the shower and see if I washed off some weight, but no, it's....<br>

well, that's what I did... lost a pound right away, then up about 4, settled in at 1.5 over starting point. Gets confusing, but the net change is what we end up with. Unfortunately for me. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
