Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was good again food and water was better 7 glasses.

We are having a cloudy day again and quite cool.  My day does not have too much loaded into it. 

Tomorrow will be my weigh-in day since I changed it from Monday to Sunday for the month of November to have an even month weigh-in.  I am hoping that this month will bring me close to the low 250s.  I know that it might be too much to ask but I am finally starting to feel and see the weight loss now.  It is the look in my face and the hips since I put most of the weight around the middle that is where I look for the loss.

Simple eating today.  I have to keep my triggers out of my mind.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.



Progress as of today: 24 lbs lost so far, only 60 lbs to go!

Seeing the loss others see is a great thing--keeps the motivation happening!

Have a good afternoon!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good - food but water was a little bit low 6 glasses.

I really don't have much going on today.  The weather is quite cool and cloudy.  This will definitely be a day to relax and basically a do nothing day. 

I am starting to get excited about leaving for the Winter now that the weather is changing.  I have a few lists to start so that I do not forget anything important.  There is stuff that if I forget will not be very important but some stuff cannot be forgotten.  

Well since there is nothing exciting going on here I will sign off and wish you all a wonderful day.

Fran where do you head for the winter?? My parents are snowbirds and head down to Florida to escape our winters here in NY.

puddles on 11/07/2014:
I go to Myrtle Beach SC. Not as hot as Florida but in the 60s jan and feb march is really nice - the important thing is there is no snow.

museumgirl on 11/07/2014:
Myrtle Beach is beautiful! :)

Maria7 on 11/07/2014:
Always good to have lists. Helps to remember a lot of things that might would otherwise be forgotten. :-)

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good food and water.

My breakfast with my brother and sister-in-law yesterday went well and as I said I would readjust the day all was good.  I decided to have the breakfast club and itemized the food 3 toast 1egg 1 slice of cheese 2 slices of bacon of course tomatoes and lettuce which count for hardly nothing.  I asked them not to put mayo and not to butter the bread.  I also told them not to put the side of homefries.  The side instead was fruit.  I think I did pretty good on that.  I got back home around 1:30 which was good and I did not have to think too hard about supper. Supper was a bowl of soup and later in the evening I had an apple.  Overall my day was perfect and I managed to stay within my calories for the day and go out to the restaurant.

Today will be back to my routine and I will not have to put as much of an effort in deciding what to eat and what to avoid.

Wishing you all a great day.

You did great! I have been avoiding my favorite restaurant place, since my favorite there is eggs benedict and home fries - yikes! :) Have a great day!

biscottibody59 on 11/06/2014:
Sounds like you enjoyed the breakfast with the best choices for you--good going!

Maria7 on 11/06/2014:
That breakfast sounds delicious! Good on forgoing the butter and mayo. Those are definitely EMPTY CALORIES! And you had a good supper, too. Looks like you did OUTSTANDING! :-)

I always find that it's hardest to watch what you eat at a restaurant. Sounds like you did great!

Yesterday good day food and water excellent 10 glasses.

I am going out for breakfast with my brother and sister-in-law this morning.  I will make a safe choice from the menu.  No need to go crazy at this stage of the game.  I have no desire to feel bad for the rest of the day. LOL LOL

I was up so late watching the US elections last night - love to watch the crazyness of it all and already they are starting to talk about the Presidential race.   It never ends.  Anyway I am tired today so I will not accomplish much today except keeping myself on track.  I will get some rest when I get back from the restaurant.

I will decide on my food for the day after my outing so that I can balance my intake.

Hoping you all have a great day.

museumgirl on 11/05/2014:
Great water intake, I need to get myself back to that. have a fun breakfast. I like checking the election results, too, but some of the commentators on the radio were ridiculous! :)

OhioRaven on 11/05/2014:
Good Luck at breakfast. I'll be checking on you. Have a good time with the fam. I follow politics some, but I feel that everyone is really divided and have their own little camps. I hate that feeling.

skinnygrlwithin on 11/05/2014:
It's always tough for me when I go out to breakfast because I end up eating much more than I would were I home. Enjoy your family time though and like you said... just counterbalance it with the rest of the days intake.

I didn't stay up to watch the politics but I do find it really interesting.

thinkpositive on 11/05/2014:
Have a good breakfast and a good day.

biscottibody59 on 11/05/2014:
Because there are no limits on money that can be spent in any election here in the US--they have to start talking about it the day after a Presidential race. It's sick--our system has become very very sick!

Hope you're having a good day!

Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was good food and water excellent.

I am really cold today and I do feel a little bit dihydrated.  I sure home I did not catch anything.  I got up early and went back to bed just could not keep my eyes open.  It is a very cloudy and dark day.  It certainly does not encourage us have that get up and go.

I am not feeling the hunger today and that in itself tells me something is wrong LOL LOL.  I will keep it low today just in case I am covering some kind of bug.

Wishing you all a great day.

Hope it's a short-lived ick (if that's what it is)--take good care of yourself!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/04/2014:
wow...I also hardly ever have days when I am not hungry!

I hope one day...pray...to be able to exercise like I used to. I want to be able to walk for miles and not have pain. one day. just gotta recover first :)

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good food and water was excellent.

Today will be a regular non eventful day.  That is good.  I do not have any big plans except some errands and some house work. 

The change back to regular time really mixes me up.  I found myself getting up too early and having to go back to bed in the morning.  It takes me a few days to get back to my time schedule.  I had the same thing happen to me when I spent Winter in the central zone of the US with the one hour ahead I found myself in bed by 9:00 and it took me a week before I could stay up to 11:00.  Anyway it will all work out.

It seem a lot of people around here are getting the flu with the change of weather.  I certainly hope that it will not stop at my door. 


That is about it for me for today.  Wishing you all a good day.

museumgirl on 11/03/2014:
The time change always screws with my schedule, too. But fall is better than spring. Have a good, non eventful day :)

skinnygrlwithin on 11/03/2014:
The time change usually screws me up when we lose an hour... i very much enjoy gaining an hour! :)

Lots of people are getting sick around here too. Just try and stay healthy!!

biscottibody59 on 11/03/2014:
You seem to have just found the formula that works--keep up the good work!

Have a great day!

horn_of_plenty on 11/03/2014:
The time change affects me too. I am still getting tired so early and waking up early too!

You are right in your comments to me about exercise. I just pray one day to be able to get back into it.

Yesterday was surprisingly good food but water was low.

I had my supper guess over and all went really well.  I did not even have a piece of cake I was impressed.  I had my weigh-in this morning and it stayed the same.  It has been an unusual weigh-in week because I settled up for the month of October and I was down one pound so I would have been suprised if I would have loss any more from friday to Sunday morning.  I Start week 14 and we will see what the month of November will bring. 

I really stayed on track yesterday I had my ceasor salad with a 3 x 5" piece of Lasagna and two pieces of garlic bread.  All is good.

Back to my regular drinking water -  I seem to have a schedule for when I drink my water so when it is disrupted I tend to stray away and once that time slot has gone buy I have a hard type picking up the bottle of water. 

Wishing you all a great day and a great week ahead.

Yesterday was real good food and water.

Thought I would post early since I will have a busy day before my guess get here.  I have decided to weigh-in this month on Sundays since the last day of the month of November is on a Sunday that will allow me to have a full month of weigh-ins and will not have to weigh-in twice in one week at the end of the month. 

My weigh-in is tomorrow the day after my special supper tonight.  That should be interesting. 

I wish you all a wonderful day.

OhioRaven on 11/01/2014:
Good Luck with weigh-in.

skinnygrlwithin on 11/01/2014:
Your weigh in will go great! Just stay focused during your dinner and try not to over indulge!

Good Morning Guys

Yesterday was good food and water.

This is my last weigh-in for the month of October.  On the 1st it was 267 and now on the 31st it is 260 = loss of 7 pounds.  It is more then I had expected for a loss in a month.  I would have been happy with 4 to 5 pounds but I have been given a bonus this month.  I always thought that about 4 pounds was a healthy loss for a month.  The last 3 months have gone so fast.

Today will be a getting my act together here.  They are calling for a little bit of snow overnight - yes can you believe it.  I have decided to go out today instead of tomorrow morning for the last little things I need like the deadly cake in my house and pray to God that no pieces are missing by the time I put the candles on top.  LOL LOL 

Sometimes we have to take things one day at a time and some days we have to take thing one hour at a time and that is how I will get through my next few days until my guess get here. I find it so funny that things can manipulate our minds. 

That is about all for me wishing you all a wonderful day and a even greater month of November.

Wow, great progress 7 pounds is a lot! good luck with the cake, those dang cakes can say such things to get us to eat them! Thank goodness no one here has a birthday again until April!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was a little bit challenging my food is off slightly accroding to me but probably not according to anybody else my calories where a little bit higher than I usually have but my water was even better then I usually have 10 glasses.

I wish I had a reason why I got hungry yesterday but I will not spend extra energy trying to figure that out or play any guilt game with my head.

Have quite a bit to do today - weekend is getting close and if I do not want to leave everything to the last minutes and then have panic attacks and feel totally tired by the time my guess walk in.  

So I hope you all have a wonderful day and I hope that I will be able to get my stuff done and ease my mind.

Yesterday is done, I am sure you are still doing great. Some days are just extra hungry, for me at least. Have a good day and have fun.

Jezebel on 10/30/2014:
I really like your attitude. How can we feel guilty if we don't do anything wrong? I need to embrace that way of thinking more. Thank you. Wishing you a productive day.
