Good morning

Yesterday was another great day food and water.

I seem to be holding the 195 it is the same this morning.  I am not complaining it has been a very good past few days. 

Having company over for dinner tonight a BBQ night.

Not much else going on but it will be a hot and busy day for me today.

Wishing you all a great day and week.

Enjoy the bbq...bbqing can be extremely healthy in terms of foods that taste wonderful when bbq'd...including all those veggies and skewered meat and veggies....oh...and SHRIMP!

nice job on maintaining. keep up the great work. Boy does it take mental strength and also just learning how to eat for being full but healthier choices...or low cal choices.

Good morning

Yesterday was another good day for food and water.  I decided to get on the scale this morning just to see if the 197 was holding and to my surprise I was 195 - 2 more pound down what a amazing few days 4 lb down.  It is nice to see rewards for the work.

My dinner last night was really nice and enjoyed eating again on the patio.

Today need to do a few prep work for my dinner on Monday with my brother and S-I-L.  I also have a few things in the house to do plus go to the store forgot to get some stuff for my salad actually I used it in my salad yesterday so I need more. 

I will probably be taking a little bit of sun again today.  I need to feel the sun on my face.  It will be extremely hot today so probably about 20 to 30 minutes will be the most I take.  The UV is way too high.

Wishing you all a great day.

Extremely hot here too...actually glad to be home and not at beach...and wondering how hot my gym will be soon when i go!

anyways, super congrats to you on your weight change! You must be thrilled as it's totally going your way! You deserve it and it seems since you got back home in Canada you've been on a roll. I'm sure you've implemented many changes in your lifestyle to cause the numbers on the scale to go down. Happy for you.

For me too. Now that i'd reached the lower weight back in April, I have made a change since then to eat less calories than i used to so i can keep the lower weight. I eat a lot of volume so I still feel full of course!! But it's still a change i have to keep up in order to maintain the lower weight. It's worth it to me.

puddles on 06/19/2016:
I really have not made real changes but I tend to plateau for period of time. If you read back to my blogs I have had quite a few plateaus of 2, 3 or 4 months through my journey. I think my body just takes the time to readjust to the loss I make and then when it is ready it start loosing weight again. I have learn to go with the flow when it comes to the plateaus. Yes I am very happy about having another period of time of loosing again. Thanks for the support. Another things is that once you are on the last miles it tend to slow down and take time and patience to persist and not give up.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a perfect day.

Decided to get on the scale this morning just felt I had loss and yes down 2 lb wow that is real nice.  I must be doing something right - considering that I had such a long plateau it feel good to be back on the loosing side. 

Just got back from my son's place just popped over to wish him a Happy Father's day.

It is really hot today and I got a bit sun at my son's actually I got a lot of sun I am a little red considering that I still have quite a tan from my Winter I was surprised to see I was getting red but the sun so intense.

Tonight is centre cut pork chop no fat on it at all will do it on the BBQ with vegetable and probably will have a salad later on if I am hungry in the evening.  I will see. 

I had dinner outside on the patio last night it was really pleasant.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

I accomplished everything I had planned - clean the patio/furniture/BBQ/windows outside.  Had a great dinner of shrimp kabob with veg on rice and a salad.  Perfect day.

Today need to do groceries since my brother and s-i-l are coming over for BBQ on Monday so instead of going out for breakfast we will be having a quiet dinner at home.  My brother is not allowed a BBQ at his apartment so he enjoys the fact that he can come over here and eat some BBQ food of course there will be a bottle of wine involved in this cookout... lol

Another beautiful sunny and hot day.

Wishing you all a great day and a wonderful weekend ahead.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/17/2016:
I love shrimp. Maybe because firstly it's low cal. But it also tastes great grilled :-) or even dipped in a little cocktail sauce. Shrimp is just...GREAT!...very healthy dinner. Any fat in the dinner or just low fat shrimp, veggies & rice!

I hope you have the best dinner at home with them. Sorry he can't bbq at his place...probably the same at mine although I've never actually looked into it as i'm not gonna be buying a BBQ so it wouldn't affect me! LOL

enjoy the nice weather. honestly, i'm just looking forward to sleeping in Sunday. that's it.

puddles on 06/17/2016:
The only fat will be some garlic butter that I will be brushing the shrimp with on the BBQ while they cook.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/18/2016:
yum sounds very tasty F! I'd love those shrimp!

Good Morning

Yesterday was a great day.

Went to my grandson's game and they won 7 to 0 they knocked them off early in the first 15 minutes.  I know I should be feeling for the little guys in the other team but I have to cheer for my grandson... lol. 

Today I am going to clean out the patio and wash down the furniture and do the windows it will be a perfect day for that because the sun is out.

Found out yesterday that I am babysitting the kids on the 27 of June.  I will have to start planning that day to keep them busy.

Apart from that I will just be having a regular day today. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a great day food and water.  Yesterday I weight myself and was down but later I decided to do it again to see if it was accurate and actually it was down to 198 but I will stick to the 199 for now.  This morning wanted to see if I was still at that weight and it showed 199 so it is a solid 199.  We will see how it goes in the next few days.  I am happy with the progress.

Just got back from breakfast with one of my friends it was very pleasant as always.  The heat today is terrible I know I should not complain but it seem to be one extreme to the other.

I did a bit of shopping on my way home and tonight I am going to my grandson's soccer game looking forward to that.

Basically a great and relaxing day. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Food and water yesterday was excellent.

Decided to weigh myself this morning and I am down 1 lb.  I have finally gotten rid of the 2 in my weighth.  Slowly but surely my last few pounds are coming off and I feel right on track with that schedule.

Yesterday was a great day with my brother's breakfast so much fun really enjoy our Monday mornings out.

Did not do too much else yesterday basically a relax day.

Not too sure what the schedule will be for today but I do have a breakfast with a friend tomorrow morning.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water.

Got soo much accomplished again yesterday there must be something in the water because I am certainly motivated in this cleaning buzz.  I have to admit some things needed to be clean but others where more just touch ups and really could have been set aside.  Always a good feeling to be in a clean environment of course I inherited this from my Mother the clean freak.... lol and that is mean in a good way.  She definitely showed me to keep a house clean... which I appreciate at time and other times it is a curse... lol

I am on my way out to my regular Monday breakfast with brother and s-i-l.  Will catch up on the other postings on my way back.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day.

My fish that I prepared last night was really nice with the rice and the vegetables.

I accomplished soo much yesterday that I was happy once the day ended because I kept finding things that had to be done.  My todo list is getting smaller and that is a good thing.

Today was up real early and got some other stuff done but now I am getting a little tired and probably will go back to bed for a few hours.  I hate it when I wake up that early and then around 8 I get tired again and have to go back to bed. 

Food for today will probably be chicken stir fry for dinner the other meals will probably be a salad for lunch and hopefully I will get more water in today - yesterday was a little low.

That's it for me wishing you all a great day.

Have a Great day, Puddy.

You too Raven.


Horn_of_plenty on 06/12/2016:
And thank you for the great day wishes! My day is turning up 100% better than yesterday.

Still way tired and my body is just wanting rest, rest & more rest. Of which i'll try to give it. I think the sleeping pills are also making me a bit tired all morning thru the next morning into the afternoon. except, i WANTED to take them, for this specific purpose of sleeping extra...anyways, I plan to take them tonight too...sorry i'm writing all about sleeping pills here. Maybe i want your take on them? I am enjoying letting my body rest for longer than i am used to. I feel the extra rest helps also with my abilities to go to the gym & exercise harder / recover faster...

your meals sound great. I do NOT eat enough fish. And so many types are LOW calorie, too. Today i had some lox, if you are familiar.

stir fries also sound good....yum! i used to cook them up often when i did cook!

also, getting back to sleep, that's the reason i took the sleeping pills - for the purpose of being able to sleep in later. which has been working out quite well! on the weekend, after a week or so of not getting the best sleep, the last thing on my mind is to have a day like you did - waking up really early, and not going back to sleep or going back, but hours later. NO way!...

water is important...def clears up my skin more...

puddles on 06/12/2016:
Thanks for the comments. Sleeping pills I find can become a habit forming mentally and by that I mean that you don't think you can get enough sleep without taking a pill. I see it a bit like the people that take medication to go to the bathroom to loose weight - hard to detach from them sometimes. Meditation and a good routine in the evening works wonders. Now I am not saying that in a mean or negative way but it does worry me that you take sleeping pill so often. Please do not be offended.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/13/2016:
Def not offended, i like hearing your opinions..i will write more when i have a better chance...at work now :=) your feedback is much appreciated.
