Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and again water was low.  I have to work on that.  It seems once in a while I get off the water thing and it is always hard to get back to drinking it again.

Today I am having a friend come over for coffee.  It will be nice to have company.

It is quite cool today but the sun is shining and that makes a big difference.  I enjoy the sunny day. 

I am looking forward to doing my groceries because my imagination seems to still be on holidays.  I can't figure out what to do with what I have in the house and then I don't feel as satisfied with what I have prepared.  It is important to enjoy what I eat because if I don't I keep looking for something interesting to eat.  I know this grocery will be expensive because of all the little things that you use only once in a while.  I have been checking the sales and this will also result in going to several stores I might as well take advantage of the sales since I have the time to do all the store anyway. 

So today I get some company and I continue doing some shopping on line and look at the places I need to hit and also finish putting my list together.

Wishing you all a great day.


Progress as of today: 53 lbs lost so far, only 31 lbs to go!

Nice to enjoy coffee with a friend. Have a nice day. :-)

Enjoy your day.

thinnside40 on 03/31/2015:
I used to make lists for each store with coupons/ads... Not as organized as I used to be. Hope you were able to do what you wanted.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and water a little low.

I got all my stuff unpacked and put away.  I am getting back into my at home routine.  I have to do a little bit of cleaning - how funny it is that a house with nobody in it can get dusty.  The plan for today is to now get the house up to par and then everything will be set to just start into my routine here. 

I have a major grocery to make this week at some point since I cleaned out everything in the fridge when I left and sent it all to my son's place.  I will wait til Thursday because the end of the month is really busy here with everybody that got their pension cheques at the end of the month and do their shopping once a month.  The stores are so packed and lineups are long. 

That is about all that is going on here.  Wishing you all a great day.

Maria7 on 03/30/2015:
Hi, Fran. Glad you got settled okay. Good plan on waiting to avoid long lines! :-) Have a nice day.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

This will be my last post for a few days til I get home again.  I have packed away my scale have started loading up the car.  I should be home late Saturday night or real early Sunday morning.  It will take a few days to get back into my own stuff and then will start posting again.

Wishing you all a good next few days.

Good morning all

yesterday was good food and water.

Well today I officially turn 62 yrs young today sure does not feel any different then yesterday but the numbers are changing.  No great plans for today but my son e-mail to tell me the Saturday after my return we will all get together to celebrate.

We are having another nice day in the 70s today and sun is in and out so hopefully will be able to sit out again and get another little bit of sun.  I wish I could bottle it up and bring it with me at the end of the week because my son tells me that we still have lots of snow and it is still quite cool.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water.

Today was weigh-in day and I am down 2 lbs this was a great week.  I might just make my goal of 230 for my return home and the end of March.  I have had a great Winter weight wise and food wise.  I have to wonder if I had not had company for one week what the outcome would have been.  The visit gave me a slight set back.  All in all it is all good and really do not have anything to complain about.  It is a process and it is over a long period of time which I have given myself.  I am on track to hit my goal by September and that is good news. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Umpqua on 03/23/2015:
Awesome work and congratulations on the loss! I think that we have to be realistic and there will always be visits, vacations, dinners out, etc. and we have to enjoy life too. As long as we're being mindful a majority of the time (and you are very good at that), we will succeed!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you M.

museumgirl on 03/23/2015:
congrats on the loss! I agree with Umpqua, that is part of life - and we need to enjoy ourselves, too. You have done great, and being on track is awesome!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you.

grannyannie on 03/23/2015:
Good job!

liza36 on 03/23/2015:
Congrats on your loss! Way to go!

biscottibody59 on 03/23/2015:
Good going! I can't say enough about your consistency in your efforts--really remarkable!

Have a great week!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you. I really do not see any other options right now it has to be done - when I decide I am like a dog on a bone lol lol.

thinnside40 on 03/23/2015:
Can go back and change it.... Keep going forward... WhoopWhoop!

Good monring to all

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

I really do not have much to report about or complain about. lol

We are having a rainy day today and it will be great for getting more stuff done and put away for my trip. 

Tomorrow is weigh-in day will be interesting to see what the scale will say eventhough I have already had a surprise this week with the loss of 1lb so if the scale does not move I will be happy with that.

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/22/2015:
Congrats on a full pound! That IS a wonderful treat for you. I cannot remember the last time I lost a pound lol. But, my mind & body is starting to get in sync, slowly, and I am grateful about it. We still have many months to summer - a lot of time to shed a few pounds before we wear more revealing clothing!

Wishing you an easy time with the packing & preparing for your trip. Those types of activities - packing & organizing - have a tendency to stress me out very much lol.

biscottibody59 on 03/22/2015:
RYC: Thanks for the BD wishes!

Sounds like a productive day despite the weather--enjoy anyway!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water was low 4 glasses will try to do better on the water today.

I have no real plans for today just going to play it by ear.  I am expecting it to be a nice weather day so will take advantage again today of that.

I have to get my car ready for the trip also and might just do that today.

Wishing you all a great day.

Well done. Enjoy you're lovely weather. Sunny here as well.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/21/2015:
I love nice weather days! A couple weeks ago we were having some nice "spring weather." but now it's been gone for awhile again....tomorrow seems sunny though - maybe i'll take advantage and go for a walk at the park!

I just looked at your weight chart on the right! very impressive!!

puddles on 03/21/2015:
Thank you.

SkinInTheGame on 03/22/2015:

Good morning all

Yesterday was very good food and water.

Glad to have had a great day yesterday just feels real good.  The off days are so annoying when I know better. 

Today is a foggy, misty but suppose to clear and have sun and end up being 71 -  that is promising.  I need to get out and do some errand.

Yesterday did my packing even if I leave in a week the suitcases are all open and accessible but I rather be going in and out of suitcases then at the last minute putting thing in them any which way.  I did leave out what I thought I would need so will not be doing to much searching.  There is some logic to my madness lol lol. 

I have rebooked for next year and will be away longer Dec 1st to Apr. 2nd that should cover all of our Winter up North.  I do hope to have more company next year since my brother will be retired by then and hopefully will come down.

Well that is about it for today - wishing you all a great day.

grannyannie on 03/20/2015:
Well done! I start packing long before a trip because I know I will change things frequently. Never pack at the last minute. Too stressful!

Maria7 on 03/20/2015:
That is nice that you will get to stay longer next time...Hope your Brother gets to visit, too. :-)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/21/2015:
ohhh, that sounds so nice! you know, when I retire, I think I will def do the same!
