Good to see you back. You can do it, Biscotti!


liza36 on 10/08/2012:
Nice job with your walking, even though you said you slid off the cliff. You will recover!


V on 10/08/2012:
Welcome back Biscotti :) Yep get right back on the saddle, you can do this my friend! I am so envious of your temps there..I am so looking forward to opening my windows overnight in lieu of the AC..I don't turn it on during the day but I need a comfy temp to sleep.. Here's to a successful week for you :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/08/2012:
hey biscotti! we can always get back on the horse when we want to...and it sounds like you're ready! welcome back to the mental and physical challenge of reaching our health and weight goals!


thenewmle on 10/08/2012:
Glad to see you back! Lets get going! Good job on consistent walking. While I was walking I carried a pair of 2 pound weights and did some repetitive random lifts while I walked - kind of like a 2 for 1 in the walking time! Our weather cooled down to the 70's and I actually needed a headband on my ears to prevent any earache while we rode tonight. Have a great evening!


legcramps on 10/09/2012:
You've been doing so much walking!! Good for you!


Maria7 on 10/09/2012:
Thanks. Hope you had a good day today. It has been much cooler here also. :-)


Soon2BThin on 10/09/2012:
It sounds like you're doing well. Good luck with the weigh tomorrow. I keep forgetting to get sweet potatoes (your last entry reminded me) Keep up the good work!

For my activity:
Mon: Walk 40 min
Tues: Walk 15 min
Wed: Walk 10 min
Thur: Short Walk

Tomorrow will begin Day 1 of 30 to function within these limits: 1) Starch-based, no added fat, plenty of vegetables 2) Drink decaf coffee 3) At least 60 min/day activity.

Food will be centered on sweet potatoes and greens, oats (plus fruit, flaxmeal, bran) for breakfast, brown rice (short grain for me), quinoa and the like. No high-fat whole plant foods like avocados or olives. The exception to that will be the addition of nuts--about an oz/day of almonds or pecans if I feel like it. I will also include 2-3 svgs of fruit daily.

I will have some challenging situations, but for the most part I think I'm prepared to get this going and keep it going. My head is completely wrapped around it:-)

I checked my body fat and it's holding just at what is posted above from June. My measurements today are thus:
Rt Arm ::11 , Rt Wrist :: 6-1/8, Rt Leg :: 24.5, Rt Calf :: 15, Chest :: 36, Waist :: 35, Hip :: 42.5, Abd :: 40.25

The cravings will go within about three days. I'll be eating 40-50g of fiber/day. My poop will hardly smell if at all. And I'll lose a considerable amount of weight.

I was a faithful Dallas fan in the early 80's. Also watched Dynasty, but not it's spin off.

RYC, I don't mind at all ;) LOL!

selina on 09/18/2012:
I love your plan!!!! Excellent foods, it reminds me to go get all those goodies you listed there at the store! The poop thing is totally funny - my friend who loves horses says that horse poop doesn't smell like anything... I'm be back checking up on your progress :)

Well hello there Biscotti! Here's to another successful week for you :)


selina on 09/11/2012:
I actually don't need a phone, but my family insists I should have one in case of emergency. So I decided to get an Iphone because they are cheaper than the other smart phone options around here. There are nicer and sleeker ones here, lots of choices. The iphone was the cheapest (and the least glamorous)of them.

I hope all is well with you, Biscotti! Cheers!

Have a good day today :)


thinkpositive on 09/12/2012:
Thanks for the comments and I do appreciate them, very thoughtful. I don't think that I'm a candidate for a vegetarian diet but I do like vegetables and was eating mainly vegetables and fruits for over a week before i left the states. I did feel good but I'm not so consistant here, more eating out and not on a real schedule. But seeing that I probably won't be here for much longer,no reason I can't implement it again.In the end though I guess it may be more genetic and not based on diet. After hearing from my Dr I'll figure out a plan.


Maria7 on 09/12/2012:
Good on the walking...I've been trying to get more walking in as well. :-)


grannyannie on 09/12/2012:
Hope you enjoyed your walk. Have a great day.

Yea, it gets very annoying when some injury makes me take it easy against my will! I heard that about Andy and Djokovic playing when they were 11! All the papers here are now predicting he's going to propose to his girlfriend of 8 or 9 years. A bit presumptuous! Would love to go the celebration they'll have in his home village.


selina on 09/12/2012:
You are right, I need a vacation from all of this, haha! Have a great day, Biscotti!

inmorning on 09/13/2012:
RYC: Well, you hide it well. Or does that say something about me that I think you are disciplined and determined:-P ? Everytime I see your body fat content I am reminded of a stupid sitcom I used to watch and there was this guy that had whatever amount of bodyfat that his docs were giving him a hassel over and he says to them, "I prefer to think of myself as --% not bodyfat!" Just puts a smile on my face :-O


thinkpositive on 09/13/2012:
About the coronary test- it was a Coronary Computed Tomography Angiogram. I requested tests to see what the status of my arteries, also I have a rapid heartbeat at times. I dont know if I would have had all of these tests in the states but since it was offered here I went for the tests just didn't realize how invasive this test was. So, yes , may not have been necessary but at least I will have a good handle on my present coronary health before I start taking statins.And it may give me more incentive to shed more of this weight.

RYC People who normally post daily or nearly every day haven't been around much. I know some has to do with the start of a new school year and being busy.

Thanks for your comments on sleeping pills. I'm not opposed to them if it means getting a decent amount of sleep. Like last nightI woke up with leg cramps at 2 am & took a pill. Not sure what else to do. Trying not to take one every day though.


Maria7 on 09/10/2012:
It was cool this morning here, too....LOVE IT! Also, a nice cool breeze blowing off and on during the day today. :-)

I'm always amazed to see how little sleep you can go with. I waste a lot of my time sleeping....

Have a great day, Biscotti!

Love the quote :) Hey thanks for listening to my rantings the past couple of days..It has def tried my patience, especially when I hear that the law enforcement earned an extra whopping 52 mill for 4 friggin days.. I get it protect the politicians but at who's expense?

Thanks, Biscotti! I hope you are having a great holiday weekend!

I read your comments to V LOL: I also saw the cringe-worthy bit about Clint Eastwood and wondered how a man who has fathered at least seven children with 5 different women and is described as "serial womanizer" could be representing those fundamentalists on the right who want to make such drastic changes in women's rights in the US.... Go figure...

Not sure if you are following any of the "events" that are going on here so might I share and express my opinion on your page..The members of Westboro(sp?) Bap Church arrived in Tampa today spewing their hate and clashed with a group that formed to protest their presence..Police quickly dispersed both sides and there are a few(the media states that they Ron Paul fanatics that are loudly protesting right on the convention floor. Let us not forget the hecklers that crashed the Marco Rubio private event in Innsbrook..LOL

I am really ticked that I didn't skip town for this, the tourists that are not here for the "event" as well as the locals feel a bit threatened with the overkill of the squad cars that are positioned on every block leading to the beach as well as the beach its self.. Okay sorry for venting but I just had to tell you this..Begone RNC, you are screwing with my livelyhood...

The business people of Tampa have spoke and not happy with their restaurants/bars/stores being shut out on making profits let alone breaking even..I guess I really can't complain(but I am going to, LOL) there are so many road blocks/barricades that makes it next to impossible for anyone to get to the local spots in Tampa so they are def feeling it big time..It could have helped if we were aware that all of the Hotels/Resorts that hosted offered all inclusive( B L D and open bar) The event itself was poorly organized says a couple who attended..They said the seen just about all they needed to see, icing on the cake for them when they said they were sent to the wrong door(only 2 exits in the arena, one for people like them that were bussed in, the other for the grand poo bahs that were greeted by Secret Service) Once they exited realized they went through the wrong door they were not allowed to re enter. The "Men In Black" told them "good luck with that" in reference to getting back to their Hotel safely... They seemed like a nice couple so I helped them out with places to go/things to do that were not in Tampa...Maybe soon I will wake up and this nightmare will be over..Hahaha

Good luck and have a great day!

RYC thanks!

Thanks, Biscotti! after a few days, the cats are getting used to the new place. I feel bad for selina because she was an outdoors cat. now she has to be indoors all the time. we live on the 9th and 10th floors.... We have a large terrace but I don't dare letting her out there. If she falls, she is history! i think she'll be ok in this apartment because the place is large and there are lots of places for her to roam and hide.

So, what's the recreational thing, if I may ask?

Have a great day!


V on 08/23/2012:
Well at least you gave it a go! Hope that you have a good evening :)


V on 08/23/2012:
I just watched the clip and THANK YOU :) I love how Tony skated out of who he would vote for :) Side not on Tony H, he always voices his opinion about the lack if clean options while traveling so much..Quite a few people turned on him when he turned in his "vegan" card..WTH people? He is caffeine/sugar/chocolate(his admitted weakness) free, give him some slack. LOL ;)

Good evening to you!....Hope your day has been a good one...

Hello again Biscotti,,,,Just saw your last comment. Thanks again for making me feel so welcomed. but again, you were always a sweetie pie. :) :) :) love ya xoxo

RE: recreational thing - you definitely have to be ready otherwise you are just torturing yourself. Might as well enjoy it in moderation if you're not ready to give it up completely.


grannyannie on 08/24/2012:
Good luck in your plans. Do what's best for you. Have a great weekend.

In the highland games there's throwing a hammer, tossing a caber, shot putting a big stone, etc.

Hope you've been having a good day today. :-)

Thanks for the comment to track the wine, chocolate and sleep. I did totally give those up at the beginning ( which is when I was sleeping the best!) Maybe that needs to be a weekend afternoon treat! I hope Isaac diminishes too. Katrina was definetly the most disastrous event I have ever experienced and I don't doubt for a minute that some of my problems are post traumatic stress. But I thank God everyday for sparing the lives of my family and I use it as an awakening for true priorities. I pray that it will not bring dispare to any of Florida either. They have had their share of damage too! Have a great weekend Biscotti!

Thanks for the comments & I did read the article in gen discussions about sleep apnea. I don't think I have it but don't discount the idea. Wouldn't I be aware- or my husband- that I stop breathing in my sleep?


thinkpositive on 08/25/2012:
Thanks Biscotti! I think I'm going down the right path re: the sleep problem. I had been thinking that I had a medical problem as I was just fatigued every day until my Dr here said he thought I was just not getting enough sleep and then I felt kind of stupid because I am constantly feeling sleep deprived with 5 hours of sleep.Now I have to see if they have sleep clinics in Singapore. Thank You for your concern!

Well i was supposed to go after the RNC for a few days but it has been the worse August ever and besides the random State Trooper escorts for a bigwig or 3 from the RNC that chose to stay on the beach it is like a friggin ghost town here.. Isaac has def ruined my plans to take over the world ;) Hahaha Okay a little dramatic..To answer your question I was hoping to go home before Xmas but it is not looking promising..i am just bummed that I don't get to celebrate my Nana's birthday with her in person :(

For my activity: Short Walk 

It's been a bit rainy and cool of late. It's supposed to dry out after today, and the 100s are supposed to return next week.

Phyllis Diller died at 95 yesterday. I saw her live show back in the early 80s and you cannot imagine how funny it was. As a kid I had watched her on TV on specials/movies, etc but this was completely over-the-top funny. She never worked dirty/blue (even though it was the norm for that time).

Her show was just too much, almost more laughs than I could stand. She had to be 60 (possibly pushing 70) standing up on stage for a good long time in heels no less. Man was it great--the only time I ever saw her. I know she continued to appear in dinner theatre and possibly stand-up in later years.

She appeared on a double bill with Julie Budd--sort of known for sounding a little (or a lot) like Barbra Streisand.

Loved her one liners about "Fang" :) RYC although the shirts( it took me 3 times not to spell it like the cuss word, LOL) are durable, I don't think I could stomach taking pics with all the hot wind that is blowing into town ;) Have a good night Biscotti!


grannyannie on 08/22/2012:
That's great you go to see her 'live'! I remember her well. Have a great day!


thenewMLE on 08/22/2012:
I really liked Phyliss too! I find it interesting that we could laugh so hard and it was REALLY funny stuff! The things people find funny today, I don't see the humor. Yesterday was our first day in a long time with no measurable rain. I am ready to dry out, but I am not ready for the 100 plus temps again. I guess I am getting older and really enjoy Fall and football!! Have a great week Biscotti!


Maria7 on 08/22/2012:
I remember watching her on tv when I was growing up also. Man, she was a very funny comedianne! :-D


selina on 08/22/2012:
I loved her! Because of my travels, moving a news blackouts, I had no idea! Sounds like she had a long lovely life!


V on 08/23/2012:
Thanks for the clip, i will check it out after work(running a little behind schedule) have a good one :)


V on 08/23/2012:
P.S. Thanks for the helpful tips about dealing with the foggy windows :)

Biscotti, you crack me up! A rabbit's foot is right. She's going to need it!
