Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Last day of the month decided to get on the scale to log in my weight for the month.  Surprise down 1 lb now that is a bonus for my month - total 4 lbs for the month.  Very satisfied with that.  Ready for the month of June.

Another rainy day.  Finally got all my pictures transferred from my desktop to my laptop.  Also transferred some of my music and videos.  I hate it when I change over from one computer to a new one.  Since I am not good at this stuff my son has to do it.  Don't like the new system on this one but will learn again.

My wish to you all is a wonderful healthy month of June.

Fran

Progress as of today: 66 lbs lost so far, only 18 lbs to go!

Nice to have another successful day.  June is just around the corner.  I enjoy starting a new month it always puts my determination in play to see how I can work this month and loose a few more pounds.  Every month for me is a new challenge because I enjoy changing the needle on the chart a little in the right direction.  Not quite sure what the game plan will be yet but working on it.

Wishing you all a great day.

I just Know you'll have a Great June. You're doing Great !


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/30/2015:
Right along with you :) I will work my tail off thru June to make sure I am beach-ready with my ankle - not to walk on beach, but to just enjoy the beach! lol...I should have been good to go this summer if I didn't rush into jogging last month...one day I will think more logically like you and some of our other members on here. At least I have you and a couple others offering me at least advice to take care of myself :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/30/2015:
oh...and more along with being right along with you for a "new month..." I sometimes think that way, sometimes not. You've motivated me to take a short time goal and keep it short-term...but slightly longer...ONE MONTH goals...what a good idea!


Umpqua on 05/30/2015:
Great attitude, Fran!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good food and water.

This month will have been a 3 lbs loss month which I consider real good with having been sick for half of the month.  Hopefully next month will also be good.  4 months to go to on my goal time. 

My body seems to be on a maintaining mode more then a loosing mode of course it is so much easier to be on maintenance then loosing.  I have to find that little knotch lower then maintenance to keep on loosing.

Did not go out yesterday today it is a must.

Wishing you a great day.

You are doing Great, Puddy. I'm glad you're here with us. You are a great inspiration.


liza36 on 05/29/2015:
Have a great weekend. Good job on a loss for the month!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/30/2015:
Nice job this month Puddie! I hope you do go out and enjoy the day today! As for me, I doubt I'm even motivated to do laundry...meaning I may skip the gym this weekend again to rest my ankle....thanks for all your kind words, it means so much!

Hi guys

Yesterday was a terrible day food and water lol lol one of those days - had not had one of these days in such a long time - I had to laugh about it.  How sick.

Anyway today is a different day and I have that out of my system well it will be out of my system I guess in a few days lol.

Out for breakfast with a friend this morning and that went well.  Now I have to get some of my work done.

Wishing you all a great day.

Umpqua on 05/27/2015:
At least you could laugh about it and you are so consistent that one off day is allowed on occasion :) I'm glad today is going well!

puddles on 05/27/2015:
Once you realize how sick what you are doing is you have to laugh at it. Yes today is going much better.


biscottibody59 on 05/27/2015:
Enjoy your day--here's to better choices for you!

puddles on 05/27/2015:
Today is definitely more on the sanity side. Thank you.


grannyannie on 05/27/2015:
An occasional splurge day is okay. Have a lovely day.

puddles on 05/27/2015:
It was more then a splurge it was more like a mega spill over and more. lol


grannyannie on 05/27/2015:
I've had several of those lately! LOL.


ohioraven on 05/28/2015:
I remember when I was off the chain at the baseball game. I felt guilty and hardly ate anything the next day. But, I knew I had to get back on track. And I KNOW you will too. Have a Great Day, Puddy.

Good morning all

Yesterday was a good day food and water was 6 glasses now that is miracle.

Had a great time went to pick up my grandson to go hit balls at the driving range and ended up with son and grand daughter coming also.  Between the 4 of us we hit 330 balls.  Of course I am feeling it today especially around the waist. I thought my sholders would be sore but not that is good. 

Going out to breakfast with brother and S-I-L this morning we are trying a new restaurant just behind the Casino on a small lake - hope it is nice enough to sit outside on the terrace.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning all

Yesterday food and water on track.

Today going over to my son's just for a small visit.  Cloudy but suppose to clear up.  It will be hot and muggy. 

Yesterday my food intake was low and I was worried about it but I decided that if I am not hungry then that is ok not going to eat just to make up calories.  It was definitely a diferrent feeling from wondering how can I lower my calorie intake.  I really try to eat only when I am hungry and that has worked up to now. 

Now if I could do that with water that would be great.  One thing about me is that I rarely feel I need to drink I have always been that way.  I never feel I have to drink.  I could easily have a coffee in the morning and not drink anything till supper time and even then it would be a glass of something with my food and then nothing else for the day.  Anybody else like that - not having urge to drink. 

Anyway drinking as always been my problem.

Wishing you all a great day.

We are having a wonderful sunny day again.

Good morning guys

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

It feels real good not having a cold anymore.  I hate being sick and I have so little patience when it comes to being helpless colds just have to run their course - waiting has never been my best attribute. 

So did the scale again this morning and I now believe it because it was the same.  I just thought it was a drastic drop and hard to believe.  So moving on now.  My month of May will not have been a total waste.  September is not all that far off and that is my deadline.  When I started last August I gave myself one year for this goal it is so close I can taste it.  The last pounds I am sure are going to be harder then the first but I am ready for that challenge.  

I have a few things going on next week two outings in one week.  I will have to work those out and I have already started wrapping my mind around it so that I am in the right mindset to deal with it.  I enjoy outings and do not feel I should miss out on being able to go out eventhough it falls out of my routine.  I have to make it my routine and work it into my routine because that is what is called a normal eating life for many people and wish that for myself also.  Its all in the mind and my selections of food. 

Sorry for rambling on today but it has been working on me because I know I will be in the maintenance area soon and have to get geared up for it.

Wishing you all a great day.

grannyannie on 05/22/2015:
You will reach your goal as you are determined. I'm impatient being sick as well! Enjoy your weekend.


OhioRaven on 05/22/2015:
You'll do great, Puddy. Nothing you can't handle.
