yes, salena's right, it is a BIG event :)'re not far at all from the prison, right steph? so i'm assuming you'll be picking up your knight in shining armor? many times have you played out the "homecoming scenario" ? :)

07-26-2006, 06:59 PM
LOL Sam...ummm, about 50 times a day? :o :yes: Yeah, he's just 7 miles away from our house so I'll be picking him up. Still working on the babysitting thing for a night or two (thank goodness it's almost back to school time!!), and then hopefully I'll get most of the next week off work as well. *crosses fingers*

07-26-2006, 07:03 PM

08-02-2006, 10:16 AM
Whoa girls...I'm getting way excited all of a sudden! D was laughing at me on the phone last night because I was like a little kid - "Honey, you're coming home NEXT MONTH...aren't you excited??....OMG I can't believe it" hahaha! :D

Everything seems to be going well now. I weighed in last night and I've lost a total of 20 lb since I started my "he's coming home diet" lol. GO ME!! I still want to lose another 10-15 before he gets here. This morning I had to call an A/C repairman at 7:00 a.m. because I woke up to a 90 degree house. He got it fixed for now and told me to have my husband change the vents again fairly soon. Do you all know how good it felt to say "Yeah he'll do it in a few weeks"?! :eek: It's all becoming SOOO REAL!

OK, I'm done blabbing about nothing. :p Thanks yall for counting down with me! It means a lot. :)

41 days to go!

Vitamin popping, cartwheel doing, overly excited,
Steph ;)

Okay Steph, you gotta tell me the secret, what are you doing to get it off, i have a personal trainer and it still aint budging, but, i do eat, rice and gravy every other night, sweet cornbread and just junk food period, is that why? LOL..... I weighed in last night and I've lost a total of 20 lb since I started my "he's coming home diet" lol. GO ME!! I still want to lose another 10-15 before he gets here. ;)41 days to go......

and umm, are you still doing the same diet?? Girl that is awesome and saw your pictures from this past weekend and I think you look great!!! I don't think you need to lose anymore bout you share some of that weight loss!! Your doin good tho girl!!:thumbsup:

Im like wanting to lose weight but just can't give up them carbs...

08-02-2006, 12:50 PM
Congrats on your weight loss Steph, and I agree, I think you look great, so share the weight loss secrets with all of us. LOL


Wooo Hooo Only 41 days left!!! I am sooooo happy for you girl.

08-02-2006, 12:50 PM
Kesha - LOL Yeah that would probably be why! :p I was a Mountain Dew addict (like 10 a day) and I gave up soda completely & replaced it with over a gallon of water a day. I rarely eat any junk food, but if I do it's a once or twice a week thing and I watch my portions. I don't even exercise, but I am going to start because I'll lose more that way.

Salena - Thanks girl!! :o I'm not really on any set diet anymore...I just watch what I eat and drink water like it's goin out of style! Danny doesn't think I should lose any more either, but I want to feel even better than I do now so I'll keep workin on it til he's home. ;) I've dropped 2 sizes since I started 8 weeks ago, so I think I can drop another one before he gets here...that's my plan anyway.

Allison - Thanks so much! You girls are making me blush lol! Those pics are coming OFF of the space soon too! Thanks for the compliments though!

08-02-2006, 03:29 PM
You sound so excited........GO U!!! 41 days!:D

P.S. please don't be mad about this...I don't mean anything by makes me smile everyday....

See I stayed at the gym AND drank water like I was a fish. :haha: but over the summer, I gained bout 5-8 pounds back..I like where I'm at I just want to tone up. But tell me why I still do an hour of cardio every morning then weights and squats/lunges every other day. :eek: :shake: I may be a freak. :ha: My dude was like "dont lose any more weight..I need something to hold on to." :p only thing is, I dont drink water like I did..I probably only drink it while I'm working out..then its juice and diet drinks. :o
anyway, keep it makes ya feel REAL good doesnt it?! :yes:

Everything seems to be going well now. I weighed in last night and I've lost a total of 20 lb since I started my "he's coming home diet" lol. GO ME!! I still want to lose another 10-15 before he gets here.

It's crazy, but it's working! ;) D says the same thing as V - not to lose any more of my a$$ LOL! :p I'd like to lose 10 more lb., but if I can just tone up some more, I'll be good to go. :yes:

33 more...but can this week move any slower?! :sleepy: For some reason I've been waking up every morning between 4:00-5:00 and it's really pissing me off lol. :blah: Maybe anxiety about this whole change that's about to take place? I feel good though and we're great so...hmm I don't know. :confused:

He called this morning and said he heard from a guy he knew years ago, and he offered D a really good job upon his release. He said he'll talk to him more about it once he's home, so that could be a positive thing. Today's my pay day, tomorrow I get to see my man, and this weekend I'm spending time with my sisters to plan our parents' 25th wedding anniversary. Life's good...but I'm exhausted from NO SLEEP! :faint:

Anyway, thanks everyone for helping me countdown. I've got all kinds of mad love & respect for all of you girls! :love:

Hey girls! :wave: We had a great visit last night. :yes: We talked about the homecoming A LOT, what time I need to pick him up, where we're going to stay, shopping together, all that other good stuff. :p ;) Next Friday I'm bringing home all of his letters, pics, cd's, books, etc...which is making it seem REAL. He said he's giving everything else away before he leaves. It's hard to believe that I've sat in that visiting room almost 100 times in the past 2 years, and I only have 4 more to go. :eek:

31 days!!...

08-12-2006, 08:16 AM
YAY!! I loved talking about coming home - the plans, the moving of belongings. It made me feel so warm inside, and it made coming home seem more real. Sometimes now, only 3 1/2 weeks after he is released, I feel like he's been home forever. 31 days and you'll be feelin' REAL happy!!! :)

08-12-2006, 12:51 PM
yay!!!!!!!!! One month! It's in the bag now! Congrats!

08-12-2006, 03:20 PM
32 days left and only 4 more visits :) makes it all seem soooo much more real when you talk about what time to pick him up, and start bringing his stuff home!!......have a nice weekend:)

08-12-2006, 03:21 PM
A month will go by so quick...keep breathing.

08-12-2006, 06:14 PM

Last day of the 30's!! :clap: He's coming home one month from today! I always thought reality would hit me hard once we had less than 30 days, and that's TOMORROW! :eek: Whoa...I have so much to do!

08-13-2006, 10:13 AM
