Hello to you.

  Scale read 156 this morning, which, altho is not my goal weight, I am still happy with it.

It has been another beautiful day here in SC.  Thankful for this site, and DD webmaster and all of you who take the time to post on DD.  I enjoy reading your postings, altho I do not post as often as you do. 

Spring is just around the corner...next month!  Smile!

Oh Maria7... I read your post about Spring and smiling --- it is snowing here today. Again. I can at least smile.

always good to be happy with you are, even if not at goal, being happy with a process and the deviations!

Hello to you.

  We are in the 70's for highs these days...loving it.  Sunny and warm.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

 

 

I worked in the flower garden yesterday with short sleeves on.  What a task!  Raked up last year's red mulch in piles and reset out some flowers at different place.  Hubby took away the piles of mulch that I shoveled into container many times.  A lot of work for both of us, and took quite a while to accomplish it, but this morning when I went out on the front porch, it looked so nice in the flower bed.  Now, for spring-time to come on in next month and hopefully soon to get new flowers to set out among the rose bushes and other flowers already in the flower bed.

we reached 60 today, but that's not normal temps for NYC in February! It's warm now...compared to last week where it was too cold!

I hope you'll share some photos of the flowers when they have bloomed!

Hello to you.

  Hoping you are having nice weather.  Our weather here in SC has become more spring-like this weekend and sunny.  Nice for being outside and according to weather report, to be in the 70's this coming week.  Hoping to work in flower bed soon to get it prepared for putting in fresh flower plantings within the next month or two.

 Scale weighed me at 156 when I weighed.

I bought a couple boxes of 100 calories microwave popcorn and have been enjoying it.  Although it is a little high in sodium, it is low in calories and is very filling.

How nice to hear you speak of "Spring like" weather arriving. You know what our news people are saying? "Winter's not over yet in Chicago." Please continue to share your warm weather experiences here; some of us are clinging to hope.


Horn_of_plenty on 02/03/2019:
wowwww 70's!

We are also having an improvement, major warmth improvement, we'll get into the 50's in NYC! and that's a delight also!

Hello....

 Scale weighed me at 155 this morning. 

We are still dealing with some flooding over here but hopefully it will soon get better.

Should be a beautiful spring coming in soon, with the rain we all have been having, with pretty flowers blooming and all.

Donkey on 01/26/2019:
Oh my... flowers? Spring? I just came in from shoveling for a 2nd time, and it's still snowing out. It's so cold that the flakes have turned to crystals - which is nice because then the snow is light and fluffy, not thick and heavy.

And we're expecting anywhere from 5-14 inches Sunday night into Monday... Pray for us!

Hello....

Having usual mug of coffee this morning...coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567Cold, January day outside. 

 Scale weighed me at 155 this morning.  Calories were about 1550 yesterday and 1750 day before.  

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

 

We have been having emergencies over here, one after another...due to flooding, our septic tank backed up into our house and then after this was taken care of,  our Daughter got very sick.  So, I am not trying to diet right now, need extra calories for energy but still staying around maintain calories, not going over.

We thank the Lord for His help and we thank you for your prayers.

I hope your daughter feels better soon. Is she nearby? Does she have help? Is she getting treatment for anything?

Colder here this morning too. After the past few weeks of above-freezing mildness, 15 degrees this morning felt bitter cold. Supposed to get snow over the next few days. The change in weather unfortunately just puts me more into my hibernation state of mind......


Donkey on 01/15/2019:
Keeping that pound off - GOOD FOR YOU!!

10 inches of snow to shovel this weekend is what I'm hearing... Not good...

Pork ribs and salad here today. Have been eating a much larger amount of squash these past few months. Probably have eaten more squash over the past 2 years than the rest of my life combined.

Good job on your consistency lately.

Maria7 on 01/13/2019:
Thank you and squash is loaded with vitamins and minerals as well as low carb and low calories, as you know. Good to snack on, too.


graindart on 01/13/2019:
I've mainly gravitated towards the squash due to the larger bulk weight amount you get for the lower number of calories. Despised squash when I was young. Learned to tolerate it with enough butter / spices in my younger adult years. Now don't mind it with just some spices / salt.


horn_of_plenty on 01/14/2019:
I enjoy those Choc covered cherries!

Lately all I do is crave coffee while in Florida and yes I'm mostly giving in!!!!

Good morning to you.

  Another cold January morning here, although not quite as cold as yesterday (34F this morning).  Smile! 

Hubby LargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567is home today and so I cooked a big breakfast, which I have not been having...grits, eggs, sausage, and toast.  So I have already tallied up more calories at this time (9 a.m.) than I usually do.  But it is worth it.  We enjoyed having a nice breakfast together.  Happy he is home today. 

 Scale weighed me at 154 again this morning.  Calories were about 1600 yesterday...Happy to see that I didn't gain because I ate a lot of food for that amount of calories.

Thank you and yes, he did. Hoping you are having a good time enjoying your Florida vacation, HOP.


Donkey on 01/12/2019:
Over the years, I too adjusted my/our eating schedule to coincide with my husband's ability to participate. When he worked 2nd shift for the railroad, our main meal would be at lunchtime, so that we could have dinner together. Then I'd make a light supper (more like a lunch) for just me and the kids (who were toddlers at the time). Over the years, this has changed.

In fact, we are changing what we're having for dinner tonight because the daughter will be home (instead of working). I've always been quite adamant that Dinner - whether at noon or at night - is a family thing. Whoever is home, we're eating together at the table.
