Good morning

Food has been good and water also.

My next two days are busy with babysitting my grand kids.  Taking them out for breakfast this morning with my brother and s-i-l.  I thought I would fit them into my Monday routine and my brother is looking forward to seeing them again eventhough we get together on a regular basis he always gets a great laugh out of them.  My brother and s-i-l have no kids so for them everything they do is cute.....  I don't always think the same way they do.... lol...lol.... 

Wishing you all a great day.


Progress as of today: 78 lbs lost so far, only 26 lbs to go!

Good morning

Yesterday I was off again on food but water was good.

I must figure out my trigger that got me started yesterday but the scale was still good this morning so no harm done thank God for that.

Planning a pampering day for myself.  Definitely a me day.  The weather is great again might just get out and do some walking in the neighbourhood just to get some fresh air and get out.

Not much else going on here.  I am so looking forward to my departure for the Winter I think that is putting me down into a funk.  I have never been good at waiting.

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/08/2015:
Enjoy your day. Sometimes, we cannot even figure out our specific triggers. Sometimes it's a friend or therapist or just takes time in general to really understand our own selves and what's truly going on...

For me...my binge / food stuff is definitely emotional. But...when I actually finally put my finger on why I do it - well - it was just a couple months ago! therapist helped me figure it out completely.

When I overeat, I become NUMB. I get extremely lazy of course...because i'm so full...but...overeating numbed my mind - helped me forget...it's like i'm taking medicine to just escape everything when I would overeat. All negative feelings, I forget...all worries, momentarily forgotten...too full and full of sugar to worry about anything for the moment...but it helps nothing in actuality.

Good morning

Yesterday was good but extra protein - water was good.

Yes I went way over in protein yesterday -  I just had a craving for meat.  I guess it could have been worst and my craving could have been sweets. 

Today will be getting back in line and sticking to my routine.  I have a few little things to do inside but nothing much.  The weather has been almost like Summer weather for the past two days it is nice to experience this in the month of November. 

Wishing you all a great day.

I'm guessing you needed the extra protein and you will burn it. You're doing really well, hope you have a nice weekend!

Good morning

Yesterday was another perfect day food and water - I am batting 100% in the pass few days. 

My friend is back from Myrtle Beach hoping to get together soon.  Not much else going on today.  I have no errands to do but will be a nice relax day maybe a few house things to do but nothing very serious.

Keeping myself on track is the only thing on my mind today.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was a perfect day food and water.

I have already done all my errands and starting to plan my food for today.  Finally got a good night of sleep.  The changing of the clock always gets me off my sleeping routine, you would not think that one hour would do that but it does. 

I will be babysitting the kids again next week for two days so I will move over to my son's on Sunday and stay til Tuesday.  I have to plan some activities with the kids that will be fun and I will be dead tired when I return home after that stay..... lol  I thought one day was hard two day should do me in..... lol.

So all is good at this end the month is progressing as planned and I feel real good trying to be more active and being more careful so that I can drop that pound that I am hopping to loss.

Wishing you all a great day.

You are good at planning! So important!

OhioRaven on 11/04/2015:
I hate that time change. I vote to leave time alone. Have a Good Day Puddy.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/04/2015:
Are you babysitting them so the your son & daughter in law can go on a mini vaca? If so, that is so nice of you! lol...and yes, kids will do you in! I remember my teaching days...and man, kids have so much energy!

I agree. October was a good month for me (i'm not sure if you are talking about October or the November to come...) either way, i'm looking for an EVEN BETTER November. Let's do it together :)

Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was excellent day food and water.

I got a lot accomplished yesterday and today seems to be the same.  I have already done a lot of cooking for the week coming.  I love to cook ahead of time.

I need to get some laundry and cleaning done today.

I also need to relax.... lol

Wishing you all a great day.

I would love to have a loss this month but we will see what Nov has in store for me.  I am maintaining but this is getting a little bit of long plateau.  I would be happy with one pound loss this month just to get it started again.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/01/2015:
Relaxing is the best :-D...would like to do more of that myself!

OhioRaven on 11/01/2015:
I'd say get up and move your ass and lose the pound.

Maria7 on 11/02/2015:
Good morning to you, Fran! You have done a LOT of work to get to where you are and you deserve to take a break til you feel like you are ready to move on again! :-D Have a happy day!

livinglight on 11/02/2015:
Sounds like you're doing great :)

Umpqua on 11/03/2015:
I hope all is well Fran - like I just told Maria, maintenance is difficult and I've always struggled with that more than losing. So the fact that you're stuck at the moment just means you've set up good lifelong habits that you've been following, which is a good thing! If you want to shake things up more this month, maybe make some small steps with the exercise. But overall you're doing fantastic!

Good morning

Yesterday my food was perfect and water was good.

Nice to have a day of relaxing I sure needed it.

Today a few errands and have to get ready for my sister-in-law's surprise birthday party and that is why we are doing it at my son's because we often get together on Friday nights for just a take out dinner so nothing out of the ordinary and that is why we can pull it off without her knowing it. 

Tonight will be pizza night not the best but that was the popular vote and so be it.  Not the end of the world I will cope with it. 

Wishing you all a great day. 


PS  Talked to my son and all the cookies I baked are gone in one day.  The kids and the big kids had a good snack of cookies.   lol

Good morning

Yesterday was a little off.

Spent the day with the grandkids.  Great day.  I am still pretty good at splitting up fights between siblings.... lol....  We enjoyed our day we did a lot of baking.  I have to admit I was totally tired when I got home last night.  I have definitely gone by the stage of having young kids all day. lol

Today is relax day.

Tomorrow is my S-i-l's birthday party that was all the baking for. 

Wishing you all a great day.

OhioRaven on 10/29/2015:
Puddy, sometimes you have to just let em' duke it out. But no bloody noses.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/29/2015:
I agree with OR...maybe let them fight a little bit ;) haha...my grandma always did it right though...she stopped the fights always and she NEVER took sides which I still find amazing. She was the complete opposite of my mom, who seemed to always take sides. I'll never forget how special my grandma was to my sister & I. she's still alive, but very sick as she's 94 I think...and has lost her memory. maybe a little too negative...but really, what i'm trying to say, is that I only have the absolute best memories of all my time spent with my grandmother. I have NO bad memories at all. She is a very, very special person. I am sure your grandkids think that way too!

thinkpositive on 10/29/2015:
I totally understand ! Fortunately my grand kids seem to be over the sibling rivalry period. They enjoy baking and hands on projects.

Good morning

Yesterday was not a good day but not a real bad day just off according to my standards.

Today is just going to be a regular day - get some work done in my house.  I have taken out my luggage out of the storage and just getting some stuff ready.  I need to do some laundry. 

I have a lot of vegies in the fridge and today will be high vegie day plus protein to balance it off.  The weather is really getting to me.  All windows closed no fresh air well maybe too fresh for my taste actually pretty darn cold. 

Thats is about all that is going on in my life this day.  Wishing you all a great day.

Got a bit chilly here after our rain, but the sun has been out for a few days and it makes all the difference.

The weather transition this time of year can be a little treacherous for some of us, but I'm sure you'll be okay with it all soon. And then it'll be time for your trip--woo-hoo!

Keep fightin' the good fight there!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/27/2015:
Same here, the chill in the air is coming. Especially in mornings now. No more fall jacket, more like a warmer, almost winter jacket.

enjoy your veggie day. I love those, especially when i'm more relaxed at home and can eat those veggies. On the run, it's not as fun because they are generally filling.
