Good morning guys

Yesterday was real good food and water.

Down 1 more lb slowly but surely it is come down.  I woke up with the feel I and lost and decided to step on the scale.  It had been almost two weeks since the scale had moved so it is nice to see it down again.  It has been a busy month of all sorts of outings but it is all good.

My brother just called and we are getting together today for breakfast instead.  I was kind of missing the fact that we did not make it out yesterday on our regular breakfast meeting.

Need to do some errands after and definitely coming back to my cool house because it will be in the 40sC today - not comfortable at all I guess that would be about 108F.  That is hot.

Wishing you all a great day.

Fran

Progress as of today: 73 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/28/2015:
Congratulations on the loss! I just had to deal with those temperatures out west and it's no fun at all. Stay cool and hydrated!


ohioraven on 07/28/2015:
Woo-Hoo ! PUDDY ! You're doing Great !


grannyannie on 07/28/2015:
Congrats on the loss!


biscottibody59 on 07/29/2015:
Good going--another one gone!

Noticed your comment about getting rid of the larger clothes--that's excellent. You're really focused--keep up the good work!


hollybelle on 07/29/2015:
Another pound bites the dust! Good for you!

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

Had a wonderful BBQ at my son's and was true to my choice.  It was a sticky hot day but had a dunk in the pool and got a little bit of sun - got back home around 8:00 pm. 

Today not too  sure what is on the agenda but will be another killer hot day - being outside is out of the question. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Fran

PS - Breakfast with brother is off for today.

grannyannie on 07/27/2015:
Glad you had a nice day and that you're doing well on your food. Have a lovely week.

puddles on 07/27/2015:
Thank you Annie


ohioraven on 07/27/2015:
Good Choices. I think you deserve another DUNK.

puddles on 07/27/2015:
I need another Dunk today it is just so hot here.


Umpqua on 07/27/2015:
You really know how to handle social situations with eating well, without depriving yourself or going overboard. That is so important, bravo!

puddles on 07/27/2015:
I just do not want to go back to the larger size clothes and actually cant at this point because I have given it all away. lol Thank you.

Good morning

I am late this morning - yesterday was good food and water.

I don't seem to be able to sake the 212.  I have been going out a lot this month but I would have thought it still would have gone down more then it did.  I will have a end of month weigh-in just to see what my monthly weight loss is.  After July I have two more months to get to my goal.  September was the timeframe I had given myself one full year.  It has gone by real fast I am almost at the end of the first year.  I know I have done gone progress and that I will go on after because 200 is not what I really want to weigh anyway but small steps will get me to where I want to be. 

Today I am going to have to clean my patio again.  Tomorrow out for Breakfast with Brother.  My S-I-L is gone for a week with her sisters for a week at the cottage so only me and my brother.

Talk to you tomorrow.  Wishing you all a great day.

Fran PS - just got a call from my son going over for BBQ - filet mignon kabob and salad.  Good choice for me.  Protein and vegetable.

I think you're doing great! Hard to be patient sometimes:-)

puddles on 07/26/2015:
Yes patience especially when the plateaus set in. Thank you.


ohioraven on 07/26/2015:
You are a True inspiration.

puddles on 07/26/2015:
Raven you are all the inspiration that keeps me going. It is team work.

Good morning

Yesterday was very good food and water.

Today will be a me day.  The weather is calling for a stormy afternoon - rain for the rest of the day.  Might just curl up with a good book.

I was very good yesterday for lunch.  In order not to tempt myself decided again to have the salad with chicken always a safe choice. 

Will do a little bit cooking today probably something in my slow cooker and that will make some meals for the next few days.  Still have to figure out what I will combine love to experiment.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good day food and water.

I had gotten some corn on the cob yesterday and it was just so good.  I know it is not quite in season yet but it was tasty. 

Today having lunch with a friend again will enjoy that.  Apart from that not much else new around here.  The weather seems to be holding off again.

Wishing you all a great day.

grannyannie on 07/24/2015:
Doing well, Fran. Love corn on the cob!


hollybelle on 07/24/2015:
Oh yes, good time of year for fresh corn. I get a few dozen ears (1 doz at a time)and cut the corn off and freeze it for winter!

Good morning

Yesterday my food and water was good.

Today is grocery day I have to replenish the fridge and the cupboards. The vegetables and the fruits are so nice at this time of the year I just love it.  I am hoping to hit all the sales and then if I still feel like it get a little bit of cooking done for the days to come.  The weather has been real nice in the past two days not as hot so cooking will not warm up the house.

Wishing you all a great day.

Hi, Puddy.


grannyannie on 07/23/2015:
Enjoy your lovely weather. Good job on the food.


hollybelle on 07/24/2015:
I love the food this time of year, too. Canada must be pushing some of that cool down here in KY - we have had less humidity and a bit cooler days, too - it's warming and steaming up again this weekend, though!

Good morning

Food and water has been good for the past few days.

It all went really well and did not feel as if I had to be on guard all the time because the menus where very well balanced food and what helped is that they are also vegetable maniacs and the spread what full of good healthy choices.  I knew that their eating habits where healthy but did not know how healthy these people eat.  I could easily take some lessons from them.

I am back and back to my routine and had a great time.  Also good to get away.

Hope all is good with you guys and wishing you all a great day.

ohioraven on 07/22/2015:
Glad you're back and stayed on track. Who are these people ? We're you at a commune ? :v)

puddles on 07/22/2015:
Cute Raven. There was also bad food groups but also very good food groups. I found it quite easy to stay away simply because I have been away from the bad stuff and was not attracted to it. Not a commune just normal people. lol


Umpqua on 07/22/2015:
^^:D I'm glad you had a nice visit with healthy eaters, very cool!

puddles on 07/22/2015:
Always good to surround yourself with people that are on your side when you are on this journey.


horn_of_plenty on 07/22/2015:
That's fantastic about the healthy spread....my parents generally have a healthy spread for which I am so thankful. It makes overeating harder if there is actually good food choices. Sometimes I screw up on holidays - but getting and better as time goes on :) learning to realize that i can choose to restrict and not to overindulge if it's important to me enough!

Good morning to all

Yesterday was good food and water.

My regular Monday breakfast out with brother and S-I-L.  Later today I am going over to my friend's place for a few days will probably be back on Wednesday and I will not be posting since my computer will be at home. 

I am planning to stay on track since I can decide what to cook and eat should work out ok.  It will be a challenge but this had to happen at one point and this when I put myself to the test.  I will test myself at being in a normal situation with a non-normal eating habit.

Wishing you all a great day and week and will catch up later.

grannyannie on 07/20/2015:
Good luck with your challenge. I've got one now as well! Guests.

puddles on 07/20/2015:
It is a challenge but I also have to try to make it a way of life as this journey progresses finding a way to be away from my safe environment which is being home alone and being in control of everything.


ohioraven on 07/20/2015:
Listen, Puddy. You are going to have to be the dominant one in this...er...arrangement. put your foot down right away and tell him/her, the way it's going to be for the next few days. And NO Compromising. Stand your ground. You've come a long way. Don't throw away the work you've done just for few days of "Normal". I'm just worried, that's all.

puddles on 07/20/2015:
Don't worry Raven. I have no problem stand my ground. What I meant by Normal is living in that world and being able to cope without over doing it. That is my normal and not feeling deprived. I have no intention of f....king it up in any way. Maintaining would be good enough for those days away.


GottaDoIt on 07/20/2015:
I'm sorta in the same situation. We are trying to close on a house and set up our classrooms in a new school. Lots of grabbing fat food. This morning we looked at each other and said " why are we turning this into excuses to eat badly?" even with fact food i can make better choices a d being busy means less temptation of boredom eating. I was lucky that I did not gain, so starting fresh today with the new outlook. You can do it!!!

puddles on 07/20/2015:
Learning how to maintain is also a progress.


Umpqua on 07/20/2015:
I think compromise has to happen at some point, within reason anyway. I also think you will do well staying with your friend and will find a way to keep things in check under different circumstances and with possibly different foods. Life is going to be a series of these types of challenges so it's best to find a way to handle them that will work well for you and the folks around you - just my opinion!

puddles on 07/20/2015:
Exactly we do have to live in this world where not all people are watching their weight so it is good to experiment and test and find our way of doing it.


GottaDoIt on 07/20/2015:
I just re read my post....I so suck at texting..miss my keyboard!!!


biscottibody59 on 07/20/2015:
Hope you have a great time away. I'm sure you'll do fine!

Good morning

Yesterday was good water and food.

The dinner out worked out well.  My selection was a chicken wrap with a salad.  It was real good. 

Today got to get some housework done. 

Severe thunder storms late last night and this morning.

A good stay in day and get some stuff done.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good to see you're navigating the dinners out so well!

puddles on 07/18/2015:
I can usually find things on the menu that would correspond to what I would be having at home. It is all being reasonable and thinking is it really worth pigging out.
