Babe, did you reach that goal?
We know She didn't.

Nick, please elaborate on your "conditioning classes" something tells me you have to be of legal age to participate???
No, no. Uncle Nick doesn't rob the cradle. My conditioning classes are successful for two reasons: greed and the natural female tendency to follow an alpha male.
The conditioning classes are like others that consist of diet and exercise. The difference is in motivation.
A woman is told it will cost her five hundred to drop fifteen pounds in two months and she'll get two hundred back when and if she reaches her goal. Sometimes I have to crack the whip on these females and give them the iron clad alpha male stare to give them motivation to follow instructions and drop the weight. But betrween greed and the alpha male stare, the job gets done.
Then when the women succeed they are very appreciative. Everyone is happy. Peace reigns over the land.
I am out of the runnings. But I am going to limit my weight gain to between 17-20 lbs. I really only want to gain baby weight and the other lbs needed to nuture my little one. I had my first child when I was 21 so I was able to eat all day and night and it seemed as if I lost every single pound the moment she was born. I doubt if that is going to be the case now LOL!
sounds fishy to me.
Yes - SLF - I am down 16 lbs. I made 15 lbs by my deadline and have been keeping it off. Back into all my clothes I love. Now - to just keep toning.
Even my hubby got into it - he joined a soccer team and plays 2 nights a week on a league.
Ask l'uomo if he 'knows' Ruud Gullit and Marco van Basten. (AC MIlan) He may be too young, though. ;)
Good for you, She.
Omar Bumpy ....
Congrats Beach Baby! We are going to be here to cheer you on! There is nothing like being able to fit into your fav pair of genes or cute shirt and know that you are sexy!!!
I can't explain my weight loss early on and I really haven't gain anything yet. My stomach is just feeling harder and had I not know I was pregnant, I would think that I am about to form a 6 pack LOL
Bumpy, I agree......Nick's classes sounds fishy LOL
Beach Baby, is your hubby getting or just staying fit too? What is his goal?
WHERE'S THE BABY ?????
LOL stop it Bumpy, LMAO!
Omar Bumpy HeHe-SheShe.
I'll ask him - he has probably heard of them. He is a huge fan of European soccer and so is my youngest daughter - they are constantly comparing soccer trivia.
SLF, I could even imagine a little "Bumpy Omar" LOL
"Hi My name is Bumpy, my mom pissed my dad off when she named me after a cool cat she blogs with. They have never personally met but he is known for shutting down the rignt wingers with facts."
Nice. I'm a bit out of it these days.
Nice that your daughter is interested as well.
He will know "Seedorf". He's current crop.
SheShe - my husband doesn't really have a goal - just too feel good. He is one of those people who is just naturally fit and gorgeous - so he gets compliments whether he is in tip top shape or not. It's a little disconcerting sometimes to watch all the women do double takes.
Although when he is not running regularly or playing soccer he can get a little soft in the middle - then I give him a little tease.
Bumpy Omar or is it Omar Bumpy? I understand where the name Bumpy is coming from - but who is Omar? SheShe, is that one of the names you are considering for a boy? I think it an Italian name - but also other backgrounds.
I believe it to be Arab. Many Hispanic-Latino boys are called Omar as well. Funny how that goes.
Right now, we have two names on the table Oliva for a girl and Omar for a boy.
i still say it's going to be a little girl.
DEAL WITH IT !!!
I like Omar - you're right SLF it sounds like it could be a name anywhere around the Mediterranean. I just looked it up and it is Hebrew and Arabic originally. Means Speaker in Hebrew and Populous and Flourishing in Arabic.
Bumpy, your chances are 50/50 just thought that I would share that stat with you lol
Omar and the Howlers. That is a band to reckon with. Not saying that little Omar will be a howler per se.
Oops - double post
Yes, my 3rd.
SheShe is this your 3rd baby?
I found this site - lots of 'how to' videos in case you forgot any of the necessary tips.
Yes Beach Baby, I like the origin of Omar. Oliva I like because for whatever reason, I wanted that to be my name since I was a little girl. I use to call myself Olivia. My mother said when I was 3, I would tell people my name was really Oliva. She says, she has no idea where I first heard that name and why I love it so much. Me either. I just feel attached to it and would have name my first daughter Oliva but there was a lot of objection from my ex-husband and he won.
SheShe, did you see The Color Purple? That's where I remember the name, Olivia.
Hey Annie, yeah I saw the Color Purple but I was 3 when my mom said I started telling people my name was Olivia which was years before Color Purple. When I first watched the Color Purple and the scene where the lady talks about why she named her daughter Oliva, I was like Wow!! there is someone else who likes that name too.
I don't recall ever meeting a woman name Oliva, strange huh??
Names are interesting. My kids all have Biblical names, very old fashioned. But one son, has a middle name "Todd". I have NO idea where that came from. :-)
Hey Beach Baby, I just finished clicking on several of the how to links and they are right on board with what my doctor is saying and that gives me that 2nd opinion. He said exercise and my weight gain will be fine between 15-20 lbs. The reason that I haven't gain weight so far is because I have been eating better and exercising thanks to our goals setting on Gratewire.
I owe you a lot!!!
You helped me without even knowing it :-)
Annie, isn't it something that you don't know where Todd came from. See that is the thing with names. We are attracted to them sometimes and we don't know why.
My son's name is Solomon, right from the Bible but we are not Bible thumpers either. We just felt connected to it although we both know it came from our reading of the Bible.
This weight thing is really pissing me off!! I'm trying to put on a few pounds, and you girls, are worried about loosing a few pounds. How about being grateful, for what God has given you, and enjoy it !1 There is nothing more beautiful, than a woman, who is content, with being who and what she is, and weight has not one "damn thing" to do with that attraction !!
finished a big bowl of breyers cookies and cream.
......just thought i'd throw that info out there.
Bump, you are one evil human being !!!!!!!
for eating ice cream?
For creating the situation and tempting these girls off their diet !! My God, I've heard enough about the number of pounds, they want to loose, I just wish I could add them !
Who would have thought that the battle of Armageddon was actually the personal battle with fifteen pounds? Without Uncle Nick's influence, the pounds will win.
Nick, the pounds will win out anyway !!!!
So Bumpy, why a "big bowl". You wrong for that! LOL
Get 'em cjercoop ;-)
cjer - if you want to gain a few pounds - follow Bumpy's example - ice cream and cookies will help! :-)
Oh and don't forget to make sure there are calories in everything you are drinking and liberally apply mayonaise wherever possible.
Those tricks will definitely make you fat and happy! (And I agree with you about being happy with whatever weight you are - it is easy to beat yourself up when you break a zipper trying to get on your skinny jeans! ;-0)
