Default calling all melbournians

Hey there

anybody interested in a melbourne catch up? I thought that it would be a good idea (and since I am leaving Melbourne in mid July - thought I better get in before I leave!!!)

Coffee / tea is probably best as I don't know any places that do Cohens friendly food - and a picnic is out of the question this time of year - while it has been sunny, it is very crisp!!!

so how about it?

Hi Kit,

I would like to meet with our Melburnians who have / are doing Cohens and compare notes. Where are you located and when were you thinking?
Count me in (depending on where / when)

Hi Gab

I live in Hawthorn - but am in the city a lot - so that is probably the easiest. Where are you located?

Hi Kit,

I am located in Lysterfield (near Ferntree Gully). Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle like Chadstone. I guess it depends on how many other Melburnians reply.

chadstone or doncaster sounds good. It will have to be at night though so I don't know if it is going to work. I go down the cost for the weekends

Weeknights are tough as we run our own business and there is no guarantee of when we are finishing for the day. When you say" go down the coast" for the weekend, which coast are you talking about?
Lorne, Torquay, etc, Mornington Peninsula or Philip Island?

Hi, I would love to catch up with you all. Just let me know when and where and I will try to make it. I live in Nunawading but am happy to travel no worries at all!

Hi Maria and Kit,

What about a Thursday evening at Chadstone or Doncaster? I don't know either shopping centre but willing to meet you both there if it suits?

really sorry gab1969 - it looks like it might be a bit hard for me to catch up with you before I leave (so sorry - considering that i was the one who instigated this whole thing).

I have 18 days before I leave the country. in this time I am booked like every night trying to see friends before I leave, plus I am getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow so I am out for 1 week with a chipmunck face. Also haven't even started with a travel itenary once I am in Europe or travel insurance and my visa is yet to come through. basically am slightly stressed and really sorry. I hope that you can find some other melbournians to catch up with - i would have loved to meet with you though
good luck with your cohens journey

That's OK. I understand that there are things to be organised before your trip and people to catch up with. Good luck with your wisdom teeth. I had 3 removed on my actual 21st birthday. The surgeon I had was fantastic - no swelling and bruising the size of a 10 cent piece.

I hope your trip to Europe is everything you hoped for and more. I am a little jealous.

Maybe Maria and I can catch up still, if she is interested.

Good luck with everything.

I am away until the 12th as of next week though.

Hope to catch up with you all.

gab - sounds like you and maria can go off and have a fine old time without me!!!

I had my teeth out yesterday. Swelling is not too bad and it doesn't hurt so long as I stay upright and ice everything (and take the miracle drugs)

that is so bad about yours being taken out on your actual birthday - not much of a birthday pressie is it?

very excited about my Europe trip. Am actually going to be living in Edinburgh for a year but am traveling before uni starts. Have been saving up for it for the past 4 years so it better be good!!!

hope you are well and keep up all the good work

Maria - Sounds good. Will wait till you get back after 12 July and then try to organise a day and time from there.

Hi Karen,

You are more than welcome to come along. Maria is away at the moment, back next week. Where are you located? We have said Chadstone or Doncaster as a meeting point but I am thinking maybe even The Glen at Glen Waverley. What location would suit you and day/time?

Hi everyone,
I am an 'old' but 'new again' Cohenite... (see ticker of shame)....
I'd also love to meet up with some others face to face, but can't do so for about 6 weeks... very busy !
Please keep me in mind for another catch up towards late August? Thanks
Ruby

In 2008 I finished refeed at 54kgs, but this time I am aiming for a number I can 'hold on to'. I'm also going to Bali in May 2012, so am aiming to lose about 20kgs before I go, then whatever I need to lose after that to get to goal.

Hi Gab1969,
I'm in Mooroolbark, but I'm happy to go to any of the suggested venues (Chadstone, Doncaster, The Glen)... all fine with me. Just depends on the time... most afternoons after 1pm are ok.
Karen

Hi Karen,

You are not far from either Maria or myself. A get together sounds like it can be arranged. Need to hear that Maria is back and start arranging things. I am interested in hearing your stories and tricks.

Hi Everyone,
I'm just about to start on the program. I've had my blood test and have my first appointment on Monday evening. I'm VERY new to this, but am looking forward to the challenge and opportunities that will come from this. I'm in Rowville, but do work full time. If its ok with you, i'd love to join in and meet some of you.
