Good morning

Yesterday food was perfect and water was good.

Weigh-in today - I stayed the same and for me that is good.  This is normal for me I seem to take a break after a very good month.  I do not worry about this because I am still 8 months away from my deadline date for attaining my goal.  My body probably need a break.  

Have a great day.


Progress as of today: 46 lbs lost so far, only 38 lbs to go!

Hi guys

Yesterday food was excellent but water was low.  It is all good.  The next 3 days will be absolutely wonderful hoping to be touching the 70s for one of the days.

Have a great weekend.

Yesterday was an ok day not to my satisfaction for food but water was excellent.

I really don't think this week will be a weight loosing week.

Have a great day.

museumgirl on 02/06/2015:
Well maybe your body is taking a week "off" and thats ok. You've really made great progress - almost 50 pounds!!! Wow. You'll definitely get there. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 02/06/2015:
Hang in there. You'll get there.

liza36 on 02/06/2015:
Glad you recognize the good things, like your water was excellent. Keep it up!

Umpqua on 02/06/2015:
A slow and steady loss is always best and by looking at your chart, that's exactly what you're doing. Have a good weekend!

biscottibody59 on 02/06/2015:
Your plan seems so easy, but I know you're really working at it!

Have a great weekend!

thinnside40 on 02/06/2015:

I'm glad the swelling is down, I try not to worry about that too much since I know it's temporary.

I have problems w/ feet n leg swelling and have for years even w/o much sodium. It stinks! Glad yours is better.

Good morning DD pals

Yesterday was a good food and water day.

We are having a rainy/cloudy day.  This day again will be a do whatever I want but strictly inside activities.

I am having a hard time with my post this morning.  I am slightly disappointed with comments made on this site that is suppose to be supportive.  I understand that we are all allowed our own opinions on things but some opinions might not need to voice in such a way.  Common respect for the feeling of others should come before brutal honesty.  I believe in honesty but not at that cost.  That is all I have to say for today.

Wishing you all a great day.

biscottibody59 on 02/02/2015:
Having an inside day can be very productive--hope you're enjoying your afternoon!

puddles on 02/02/2015:
Thank you and yes it was a great inside day.

Good morning everyone.

Yesterday was perfect food and water.

There is nothing like a good weigh-in to remotivate you and keep you on the straight and narrow.  I got on the scale this morning just to check if I had a solid 238 and yes it is a solid 238 even the 237 flickered a few times before settling on 238 so it is promissing that I might have a another loss this week coming.  No more scale for me for the rest of the week.

Every Sunday morning I write to my son because he worries about me being here alone.  We call it our Sunday check-in time.  I don't talk to much about the weather because they are having a bitterly cold Winter up there - not much snow but so beyond our coldest Winters.  The kids are getting excited about packing their shorts and swimsuits.  It will be their first time experiencing the change of leaving in Winter clothes and along the way changing to summer clothes they have no concept of what that is and actually they don't believe it when my son tells them.  They are so cute at that age.

Plan for today - undetermined - I usually get some house cleaning done which leaves me with an open week to do whatever I wish - so it might be in the plan for today.  I have no need to run errands - basically a lazy day.

I wish you all a good week and a wonderful Sunday.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/01/2015:
where does your son live that it's so cold all the time?

enjoy your day, Puddles. It's nice when you don't have a thousand things to do - all in one day! I find myself trying to eliminate errands now...and as i'm getting my fitness back - I've decided what i love most is still being in the outdoors. even if just with myself, for an hour or so. i'd rather make the time for nature than most errands, cooking, or even shopping :)

and having time to relax is important, too. running around like a chicken without a head doesn't do much for creativity and working on personal thoughts and goals :)

puddles on 02/01/2015:
My son live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada and it has been one of the coldest Winters in a long time hardly any snow at all but bitter cold. I have been retired now for 18 years and now find that nothing is a rush but I have always been a little bit on the laid back type and taking a relax day has always been more important than cleaning or any other stuff that could wait. At one point in life you decide what is important, what is healthy and what you really want to be doing.

thinnside40 on 02/01/2015:
Good job!

Good morning DD pals

Yesterday was excellent day for food and water.

Today was my weigh-in for the end of the month of January.  Jan. 1st I was 247 today Jan. 31st I am 238 I lost 9 pds.  A wonderful month but cannot expect this every month.  This month has been a readjustment month from home to here on hollidays.  There has been more temptations and I have given in to some things and tried other things and it was not always a great decision. 

I tried to figure out yesterday why they kept showing 243 on my chart for Jan but I have dicovered that they count the months a little bit differently then I do.  I started Aug. 12th and the way it is posted they do from the 12th to the 12th of the months total.  I could never figure that out because it was not accurate but it is according to their monthly registry.

February starts tomorrow my goal for that month end was suppose to be 235 but I will alter that slightly I would like to be close to 230 by the end of February.  I know it is a reach but we will see I would not be disappointed if I dont make it because I am doing good.  I will take whatever comes my way.  

Another beautiful day.  Wishing you all a great day.
