Good morning

Yesterday was a perfect food day but my water was low.

Today was wiegh-in day and I am down one more pound I am happy with that.  I now start week 6.

I have a few things I have to get done today but not a big day as far as hard work. 

Wow the weather has really changed fast from one extreme to the other.

Will talk to you guys later and have a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was OK not perfect.

The birthday party was good they had corn on cob and I had one of those and hot dogs on the BBQ and I had one of those and I had a small piece of cake.  Overall not to far off my list except the corn and cake not a prefect choice. It is what it is for today. 

Tomorrow is my wieght in and I think that it will be ok.

Today my plan is to stick to my regular eating habits and eliminate the sugars that I manage to ingest yesterday. 

We are having a cool weather day - really nice for a change after the hot spell of last week.  The severe weather of the past two days has created a lot of damage in the area - mind you nothing like devasting turnado stuff but branches and some areas still have no electricity.  I was lucky with only 4 hours without electricty one day and the following day another 3 hours.  I am getting pretty cook at resetting all my clocks.

Thal is all that is exciting here for today and I wish you all a wonderful day.

We were at the RedBlacks game when that weather blew through Ottawa. It was like a monsoon!

Good morning guys

Food and water good yesterday.

We had a violent storm yesterday afternoon.  My flower pots on my little deck took a beating.  They were definitely on their way out anyway so it did not matter too much - time to put them away for Winter.  It also caused a power outage and that meant that I could not cook - it was out for about 4 hrs.  I decide to pick up a 6" sub and that worked out good.  I could have done worst and I was proud about my choice.  I had not had bread in 5 weeks and I really appreciated a change.  Bread is one of the things that I do not bring into the house.

Today is cloudy and expecting some rain this morning but sunny in the pm.  I have not had the phone call from my son - do not know what day they are having the birthday party for my grand- daughter - she is turning 6 and she is a real drama queen and she rules the roost. LOL LOL

No real plan on my food for today I will have to fly by the seat of my pants on those decisions for the day. 

I don't know what it is about this time on my food plan but I am more peaceful about choices and mistakes and whatever is put in front of me.  I have decided that it is what it is and it will just take whatever time it will take.  I am not saying it is a "I dont care feeling" but a acceptance that I am not perfect and my eating might not be perfect at time but it will be as perfect as I can make it and still live my life without the guilt.  For this today I am grateful. 

Sorry for rambling on today but it is my dairy and I feel safe here to do that.

I wish you all a great day.

Fran

Good morning guys

Yesterday was OK not perfect - but who is perfect in this world. LOL LOL   If I was perfect there would be no need for me to be on this site.

Woke up hungry this morning that is very unusual for me.  I usually do not get hungry till later in the morning.  Might just be an off day. 

Very humid today unfortunately it will be a day where I stay in because it is going up to 39 with humidex.  The breathing will be laboured in my case the air is not good.  That does not help - so I am in with not to much to do could be problematic if you know what I mean.

This weekend is my grand-daughter's birthday so another party. It seems to be non-ending birthday party lately.  The next one is not till January (away Jan to end of March) and fortunately I will be away for all the birthdays after that. It starts over again in July - thank God for small miracles.  This party will include a BBQ so I am going to make some smart choices and try again only to have a sliver of cake.  I have been good with the sucre since I started I no longer get the urge to go and get a bag of cookies or stop in at the donut shop for my regular 6 donuts. LOL  I have probably cleaned my system of sucre and therefore do not crave it anymore.  If I see something I think about it but it is not a craving that I can't stop myself from bying it.  That is definitely a good sign especially for me.

That is about it for me for today - good to hear from all of you - wishing you all a great day.

You've got the Will-Power. I need to find some of that.

puddles on 09/05/2014:
I really don't believe in will-power - but more in "but for the grace of God" he will help me get through this in my time of weakness. One day at a time. This is part of my Overeaters anomynous. Did you ever think of joining a group. It is life changing.


thinkpositive on 09/05/2014:
Good job being free of sugar urges. I'm at that point right now & it is a good feeling.


OhioRaven on 09/05/2014:
I might have to look into that.

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good - water and food.

Today I have to go and get my new health card picture taken time to renew my card.  Every five years I see how much older I look - I dont seem to think I have changed but when you put the picture side by side there is a difference. LOL LOL  Oh well it is free so nothing to worry about a picture is just a picture.  

Not much else going on here - the weather has finally settled down to normal September weather which I am grateful for.  Fall is one of my favorite time.  No leave have started to change yet but I believe that soon some will.  It will be picture taking time again.  Every year it amazes me the beautiful colours.

My eating plan for today is my regular eating habits which seem to be working for me.  I am returning to my Monday weighin.  Last week was different simply because of how the month ended and I wanted a monthly total.  Hoping that my first week this month will be good.  I am sure that something has moved not that I can tell my looking at myself but eventually something will start to show.

I really miss all of the old DD members that no longer post.  Would be nice to have them back.  Maybe once Summer is over some of them will come back.  Summer is a busy time for everyone. 

That is about all for me for today and I wish you all a wonderful day.

I'm going to lots of Festivals and Picnics this time of year. Sometimes I wish I could slow down. Keep Going Puddy. You're doing Great. You're the bright spot in my day.

puddles on 09/04/2014:
Thank you Raven - I always appreciate your comments. So few of us the older members on this site that you are a fresh breath of air. Maybe slowing down would be good but only you can decide that one. Take care to our next conversation.


thinkpositive on 09/04/2014:
Thanks for responding tomy posts. It is a bit lonely here in DD country! You have a good attitude about weight loss.


biscottibody59 on 09/04/2014:
This is just about the "deadest" I've ever seen it here. And you know I've been here forever.

We all know this place is the best for support--not much nonsense involved.

Have a great evening!

puddles on 09/04/2014:
The no nonsense is what I enjoy. The venting. The liberty of saying anything that is on my mind. No judgment. I also wish the volume of posting increases.

Yesterday was great - food and water.

Not much on the plan for today.  Just got up and that is unusual for me but the weather has been so hot lately that last night being a cool evening gave me a good night of sleep.

Will add to my blog later.  Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good.

September is turning out to be very hot.  It will be very humid all week then down by the weekend.  I just have such a hard time sleeping in this weather.  I was up three times last night - humid plus hot flashes what a combination. lol

Today I have a few errands to do - food, post office and some house work.  I have to do food and post office and depending on the heat in my house the housework might just have to wait.  I do have to get out early this morning because we are suppot to have severe thunder storms today and I dont want to get caught in that.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and will talk to you guys later.

Good morning

All is good for yesterday.

I went over to my son for the birthday party only to realize that I had been invited only for the cake part.  They had already had dinner and that was good but since I had really not had much during the day I was surprised that I was not going to be eating anything at all. lol lol  I did not have a big decision to make.  I had a sliver of the cheesecake and that was it.  It was good and around 10:00 pm I came home.  I dont know whether it was a blessing or what.  Certainly no temptation to worry about. 

A new month is starting - I find it easier now then when I first started.  I dont feel that I am missing out on stuff anymore - I have gotten over that first step of feeling punished because I cant have any of the stuff I like.  The fog has lifted. Acceptance is the hardest part.

I hope you all have a great day and a wonderful month of September.

Good morning all

Yesterday was a little bit off.

I did my weigh-in and lost another pound.  I am definitely going in the right direction.  Total for the month of August is good 12pds.  I am hoping to be in the mid 260 at the end of the month of September.  I know I said I was not going to concentrate on the number but I am simply putting it out there (my wish list).  The first month is always the month that you loose the most I dont expect next month to be as good but any amount of pds down will be good.

Today I go over to my son's place because it is my daughter-in-law's birthday.  It will be a challenge but that is OK I have to learn to deal with these special events because they will not be going away - they are a given for every year.  I dont even know what the memu is for tonight - so will have light everything before I go over just in case.

We are having a rainy day today - good day to get together with people because it would not be a good day to do anything else.

Hope you all have a good day.

Fran

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/31/2014:
Hello :) Congrats on your weightloss so far, that's just great!

As for today, the best thing for you at the get together it HEALTHY options! Bring a veggie and/or fruit platter with you...and keep your mouth busy with that & sipping on either water (the healthiest), tea, coffee, or (if you like / drink them as they are not the healthiest) diet/sugar free drinks. You can go there, have normal portions of everything, but then if you feel nibbly/thirsty, stick with the veggies / fruits / low cal options for snacking. you can still enjoy the food like everyone else for lunch or dinner and a real alcoholic drink if there are and even dessert (since it's a special occasion) but just try not to make it a whole big snacking day, especially if there are good snacking choices (vegetables, fruits, low cal drinks) available. take advantage of the good food choices!

Hi Guys

All is good here.

My grandson came for a sleepover last night he is 8yrs old.  I had so much fun with him.  I was good eventhough he had all of his numnums around.  Of course he is not on a diet but I am and I managed.  It was not all that back and I did not feel like I needed any of his junky stuff.  What also helped was that his junky stuff are things that I really dont necessarily like.  Great......

Hope ou all have a great day.
