I would love to see the retired stickers enlarged so they are easier to see. Some of them are really small, and the resolution has improved a lot over the past 6 or 8 months or so, so those earlier ones aren't as easy to identify. I would love to see a larger Matterhorn Macaroon and Dole Whip Float, more along the lines of the Dole Whip sticker.  The Matterhorn, Mark Twain and splash Mountain would be lovely. Thank you for listening to 'the people.'  😂. Love all the stickers! - MeridaFan   3187.7 #28 7-21-14 6:27PM Like(3)  Reply

Hello how is everyone doing?
I'm okay I guess. Still frustrated by my plateaus!   I'm 8 lbs from my 40# goal and it's torture!  I stepped up the exercise (did 4 mile walks 3x's his week in addition to the elliptical and dog walk) bit still only lost like 3 ozs!  How's everyone else doing? - msdizmaui   581.2 #286 7-21-14 12:07AM Like  Reply

I lost a whole 0.8 last week!  Whoo Hoo!  I've within 8 lbs of my goal weight (4 and I'm back in the 120's!) but it's like pulling teeth at this point....hey...that's an idea.  How much do teeth weigh...lol! - msdizmaui   581.2 #286 7-21-14 8:20PM Like  Reply
Lol, I once grew my hair real long so that I could donate it.  I ended up cutting 15 inches off, and got on the scale the next morning--I had lost a few pounds in 24 hours.  I had no idea how much my hair weighed! It was so funny!  😂   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  506.5 #345 7-22-14 8:49AM

Running at 5:30am isn't beating the heat anymore.
I know!  I keep trying to convince myself that the monsoonal moisture makes it feel "just like running in the morning in Hawaii," but it's really nothing like that 😂 I'm in the midst of overcast agricultural land with 105 for the high today.  It does NOT smell like Hawaii!  🙊 - Spoonful_O_Sugar   506.5 #345 7-14-14 7:13PM Like  Reply

Have you ever run a half before?  Maybe you could go to a gym to do a few long runs on a treadmill before the race?  Last year I wasn't able to run outside for two weeks because of smoky conditions from a wildfire, and that's what I did--I did a few short runs and my last long run.  It's not ideal, and it was really boring, but for me I think it was better than not doing a 12 miler before the race because I had never run that much before.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  506.5 #345 7-16-14 11:51AM
No I have never ran a half. - disneyland4me  239.4 #1334 7-16-14 6:40PM
I haven't done any long runs since the Tink Half in January.   I hope my 3-4 mile runs during the week will cut it.  - MXPrincess399   631.0 #256 7-16-14 10:35AM Like  Reply

👋 hi there!  Glad you're staying active despite the heat.  It's hard having to get up early--I'm doing pre-6 am jogs, too.  My dog is not even that excited to go at that time, lol 😂 Usually he wakes me up by dropping my sneaker by the bed, but at 5 am he's still sound asleep when my alarm goes off.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   506.5 #345 7-9-14 9:56PM Like(1)  Reply
Holy Cow! I think that you're doing amazing!  To tell you the truth, I wouldn't get us at 5:15 for anything!  That's why I don't think that deep down, I'm marathon material...but then again, I'm old and I'm just proud of myself to walk my dog every evening and use my elliptical most days! - msdizmaui   581.2 #286 7-9-14 10:25PM Like  Reply
I always have a goal of finishing a Half Marathon under 3 hours, and I know the way I'm running now won't get me under that goal so I have to train and I'm finding that it's easier to run in the morning. I actually feel better during the day.  - MXPrincess399  631.0 #256 7-10-14 10:06AM
MDM, I am a total night owl. I never thought I would get up so early unless I absolutely had to for work or to leave for the airport for a flight to Hawaii, Europe or Australia 😂  my body's gotten used to it, but I had a terrible time trying to adjust my internal clock!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  506.5 #345 7-10-14 5:59PM
MXPrincess, what do you do for food before your early morning runs? I have a hard time with that because is rather just get up, drink a little water and head out, but I need to eat something or else I'm running on empty.  However, everything I've read suggests eating at least 30 mins prior, but I'd rather not sit around waiting for food to digest--I'll be tempted to just go back to bed!  What do you do?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar   506.5 #345 7-11-14 10:52AM Like  Reply
I don't eat. I get up at 5:15, drink a little water and try to be out the door by 5:30am. I do about 4 miles in the morning with a stop at the park drinking fountain at mile 2. I don't find that I feel bad or anything. Usually before a Half Marathon I'll eat a banana and some peanut butter. I never been able to eat when I first get up. I don't usually eat my oatmeal until 10am, on my first break and that's about the time I start to get hungry, running day or not.  - MXPrincess399  631.0 #256 7-11-14 4:59PM
Ok good to know.  I think I've been trying to eat too much because I was afraid I'd pass out or feel bad, but it doesn't sit well that early.  It makes sense to eat a bagel or something if you run later in the day, but first thing in the morning just doesn't work.  I'm going to try just having a little yogurt or string cheese and see how that works.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  506.5 #345 7-12-14 8:18AM

Weigh in day results: Down 2.4. Second week in a row that I have lost over 2 pounds. I am going to treat myself to some time in the parks this week. Where and what isnyour favorite place to eat?
Congratulations!  I would probably have a pear martini or tequila Daisy at Carthay Circle and dinner at either Bordwalk Pizza and Pasta (The food isn't super-duper fabulous, but it's good--I mainly just adore sitting outside in the evening there), Cafe Orleans (we love to split house salad and Monte Cristo), or Bengal Barbeque with a Dole Whip for dessert!  Now I'm hungry, lol 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar   506.5 #345 7-7-14 9:37PM Like  Reply

You will love it!  And I've googled the nutritional info in the past--it's actually not that bad.  I think 1/2 cup has something like 90-100 calories and it's fairly low fat.  Problem is that my guess is that the servings are more than 1/2 cup, lol 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  506.5 #345 7-9-14 9:51PM

That is sooooo awesome that you've lost inches--you are very strong to be able to continue eating well and measure at a time like this!  Good job!  I have had four dogs pass away over the course of my life, and three of those four were unexpected, sudden losses--although I don't know exactly how you feel, I know how hard it is to have to experience that kind of a loss.  It's devastating, a part of the family is gone--but life keeps moving forward and people can choose to move with it.  Your new family member will bring you such joy--it will not replace Oscar, but it will fill a different kind of space in your hearts--one that you didn't even realize you had 😊 I'm so excited for your new adventure!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar   506.5 #345 7-9-14 9:48PM Like  Reply
