Good morning

Yesterday was a GOOD day food and water.

I guess I go through a few of those days we all go through but I have to admit they are far and fewer then before.  I can go a long time and then I get a few off days -  I call them off days but they are not as bad as I use to be - not even close.

Today is another beautiful day and will take advantage of that.

Have a great day.


Progress as of today: 74 lbs lost so far, only 10 lbs to go!

Good morning

Yesterday was so so Food and water was great.

My routine is slightly off but that is ok just a bump in the road.  I have to schedule my day better. 

We are having another great day weather is really nice.  I so enjoy this cooler weather.  The humidity is really not my friend.

Good morning guys

Yesterday was so so food and water.

I probably was on the high side of carbs last night with pasta but it could have been worst it could have been desserts or another of my weaknesses.  I often think my body craves some different kind of foods sometimes and if I put it off it just gets worst.  So that craving is over onto starting a new day. 

I am so looking forward to my holiday it is unreal.  This weekend is going to be a quiet one and that is good it will give me time to get ready without a rush.  I am trying to fit everything into a carry on and I think I can do that because I have a wash and dryer in the apartment I rented so I can wash and rewear most of the outfits.  I just have to pick things that all go together.  I am not there for how I look but to enjoy and not as if I have anybody to impress..... lol with how I look anyway. 

That is about all that is going on today wishing you all a great day.

I still have one week home Annie then I go Aug 15th.

Did I read that you are going to Paris? I was there late May & it seemed that everyone- except tourists- wore black, gray, with some white or with a touch of gold. Also I used a great app for taxi & they spoke English. Or maybe you speak French.

puddles on 08/06/2015:
Yes I am French - I rented in the 18ieme Arrondissement Montmartre. It is a nice area close to cafes and little stores for food and great walking to several of the places I would like to visit this time around. You never see it all the first time you go. I just want to get away for a while and thought this would be great for me.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Had a very nice breakfast with my brother - next week my S-I-L is back from her family reunion and we go back to our routine of the 3 of us going out for our morning breakfast.   I will be away for two weeks after that so I am taking advantage of this.  I am looking forward to my holiday it will be nice to escape the routine for a little while and of course put myself to the test. 

Today is another beautiful cooler day and I really appreciate it - 23C is real nice to me. 

Just have to do a few little things not much -  I have been putting together some things that I will need while away.

That is about it for me for today wishing you all a great day.

puddles on 08/05/2015:
Yes will be hard this test with all the french pastries but I think I can be reasonable. lol At least I will try my best.

horn_of_plenty on 08/05/2015:
Nice to hear you are getting more done and feel like you've been able to accomplish quite a bit...it's been quite hot here as well and we also yearn for the cooler weather to come next week...

puddles on 08/05/2015:
Yes have to get some stuff done I leave next week.

hollybelle on 08/05/2015:
Good post. Hang in there-planned vacation sounds wonderful!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Got a call from my brother last night and we are going out for breakfast this morning it seems we have switched our Monday to Tuesday morning get together.  That is good as long as we get to hook up once a week I am good with that. 

I then have to go and get a few small items at the store my cupboards are getting empty again. 

Today we are having another nice day of cooler weather much more pleasant out there.  Can you believe we are heading into fall like weather hopefully this kind of weather will keep up for a little while more.  The house really needed to cool down.  It is perfect for sleeping nice cool nights.

Well that is about all for me for today.  Wishing you all a great day.


PS Picking up my tickets today for my trip.   Ya Ya .....

Doing great! I'll trade you some hot weather for ours. We've had the wettest (and cold) summer.

Are you packing your Bikini for your trip ?

puddles on 08/04/2015:
You got to be kidding this body in a bikini. lol lol A tankini yes.

biscottibody59 on 08/04/2015:
Wish I could share a little of your weather today and the rest of this month. It's gonna be brutal (and humid) with temps this week!

thinkpositive on 08/04/2015:
Tickets for your trip!! Always nice to have something to look forward to.

puddles on 08/04/2015:
Yes leaving on the 15th two weeks in Paris will give me a nice break from my routine.

Maria7 on 08/04/2015:
I went shopping at the grocery store today, also...spent a lot but didn't get a lot. I did get a watermelon, though and some more salmon and turkey bacon, etc...the usual foods I've been eating lately. What foods do you like to eat pretty often?

puddles on 08/04/2015:
I am a chicken and fish person I can invent all sorts of way to mix it with my veg dishes. For supper meals. Lunch is usually a substantial salad with probably some cheese for protein. Breakfast I do once a week with my brother - never have been a big breakfast person. By the time I finish my coffee time it is almost time for lunch anyway. I love my yogurt with fruit in the evening or popcorn. Lunch can also be a sandwich and sometime I love to have soup for lunch. Over the last year I have invented more stuff - some good some so so and some terrible mixtrues. lol

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water.

Another wonderful day. The weather is settling down and making it bareble finally. 

Today is going to be filled with some regular stuff but have not heared from my brother so not sure if we are going out for breakfast.  Will let you know next time I log on.

Wishing you all a great day.

Yes nice and steady is what I was aiming for - not easy but well worth it. You can do it too.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

It was a perfect day - just a plain relax day with a few delightful telephone calls from some friends - had some real good laughs and good conversations.

Cooked some chicken breasts yesterday so I can use in several different ways in the next few day.  I am definitely a chicken person.  Yesterday I had a beautiful ceasor salad with sliced chicken of course it was probably enough for two but when it come to my salads they are always large because I consider them as free food.  I don't ever remember hearing that somebody put on weight eating salads -  just have to be careful with the salad dressing.

Today need to get some of my house stuff done and maybe even my laundry but it is still very early to plan my day.  I will do something on this list but what I do not get done today will get done tomorrow.  This is a long weekend for us so.

I have to admit at this point that I am really enjoying my food and not obsessing on it all the time. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday.

ohioraven on 08/02/2015:
Believe me, Puddy. My salads are HUGE. I use white mushrooms instead of chicken. I go by what the calories are on the salad bag. That's the only way I buy it. But you're right about the salad dressing. Glad you had a good day yesterday. The sun is out. Go and enjoy your day.

puddles on 08/02/2015:
I use the chicken for the protein part of my salad I find if I have no protein in my salad I don't feel as full.

hollybelle on 08/02/2015:
Good job on everything you've done the last few days -- you are on a roll! Keep on rolling, Puddles!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

End of month already.  I started July at 214 and ended it at 210 - 4 lbs a very good month.  My goal of being 200 at the end of September might not be possible unless I get a miracle but that being said being close to 200 is good enough for me.  My month of July was a very busy month of outings which I managed quite well and I am feeling good about that. 

Starting a new month tomorrow that is good and I am determined to be a little better next month with the outings.  Fall is coming and the weather has a lot to do with the outings - great BBQ and going out for dinner on outside cafe patios is a seasonal thing that can only be taken advantage of in this season.  I will keep my breakfasts with brother and S-I-L but will cut the dinners out a bit. 

Wishing you all a great day and a wonderful month of August.
