Good Morning. Down 1 pound. I've been doing ok (not great) on my diet. And I think I'm getting enough activity at work and around the house. I haven't been to the bike path since last year. Maybe that should change... Have a good and Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/25/2016:
Hi OR! I've been doing better on my diet too. It's been 2 days so far & I'm happy that i'm on the road again and making those better choices. I just need better sleep. But it's ok, for now.

Sometimes when I don't sleep enough, I feel less control over my food choices. But, I feel good for this week.

Have a great week!

grannyannie on 04/25/2016:
Good job on the loss. Have a great week.

puddles on 04/25/2016:
Very good Raven congrats on the pound down... Your going to have to take your bike out of retirement and get it out to the bike trail. Have a great week.

happy-1 on 04/25/2016:
just ride your bike around the block once to break the bubble.

cybermom4 on 04/27/2016:
Hi OR -do you bike outside or at the gym? I would think with the good weather, biking outside would be fun.

Good Morning. Up 2 Lbs today. Gonna work it off and correct some things. Starting with getting off my butt. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/18/2016:
I also have some work to do regarding my weight. I'd like it lower, although I can't say it's bad looking now, I know I can do better. Been chillin' a bit much I guess.

HOLLYBELLE on 04/18/2016:
Nip it in the bud while it's 2 lbs! Not like me and have to remove about 18 of what I've gained back. You can do it - how's the knee?

puddles on 04/18/2016:
Good Afternoon Raven... what is really going on this weight gain is not you. I miss your daily posts. Spring as sprung Raven time to spring into action if you want to wear your speedo this Summer.... lol. Take care.

Good Morning. I'm doing ok. My knee has me slowed down. I'm eating the same thing day after day. My water has been about 1 and a half liters every day. The weather has really warmed up. I might try the bicycle after I cut grass. My belly seems to be growing again. I'll know more Monday morning and give you all the news. Good or Bad. Have a Healthy Day.

hollybelle on 04/16/2016:
Sorry about the knee. When I had knee issues I rode my bike and it seemed to help over time. It probably depends on what the exact issue is with the knee. I hate taking arthritis strength acetaminophen all the time, but it sure makes like much easier. :-)

puddles on 04/16/2016:
Good to hear from you. We are also getting better weather now and Sunday will be 22C/74F now that is my kind of weather. Take care and have a great day Raven.

grannyannie on 04/16/2016:
Hope your knee gets better soon. Bellies have a tendency to increase - mine has.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/17/2016:
My belly is a little bigger too. I'm doing something about it though, but nothing extreme. More than anything, i'm enjoying being good to myself this weekend!

Good Morning. Weight is up. I gotta get more active. Sitting around and eating popcorn isn't going to cut it. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 04/11/2016:
Good morning Raven you have not been posting very often in the pass few days. How is your knee? Hope this week will be better for you motivation motivation motivation.... you can do it. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 04/11/2016:
Sorry. I know how you feel.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/11/2016:
popcorn is the least of our troubles! it has fiber to boot!

aren't you always active!?

and...get your weight down !!!!!!!

hollybelle on 04/11/2016:
How is your knee - is that why your activity is down some? You can get back in the swing.....anti-inflammatory meds will help a lot.

thinnside40 on 04/11/2016:

Bad Morning :>( I Ate a mini pizza last night. It was a gift...from a friend...I tried to refuse it several times. It was the first bread I'd had since the Thanksgiving stuffing. I have to go back to this place every 2nd Thursday so I'll do better next time. Water was up to 2L yesterday. Hope everyone is staying fit and active. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/08/2016:
OR! Stop being so nasty to yourself! You are doing GREAT. Stay positive. And next time, when a friend offers you & if you really don't want it, just repeat yourself another time until they stop. I read somewhere how it's not right for people to push like that & that it's ok to stand up for your own decisions & that it shouldn't come across to others are rude or anything....so don't feel bad next time.

And if you enjoyed the pizza, good. it's good for your body to sometimes have a slight shock to the system, to get the metabolism moving along, digestion different, etc. You are gonna be ok as usual. I'm glad you at least I am SURE had a fun night. Cheers to an active & fit Friday. Take care :)

puddles on 04/08/2016:
Good morning Raven. Don't worry about it not as if you are going to have another pizza today. It is good to change it up sometimes. You are doing great. Have a great day.

cybermom4 on 04/09/2016:
OR - I know it is hard when someone gives you a gift. I usually say 'This looks wonderful can I save it for later - I am not feeling well right now" Or - Thank you so much - I love this kind. Do you mind if I share it?? But like Coach HOP says - if you ate some and it was good - no harm done. Today is a new day!! Super Saturday!!

Good Morning. I'm still doing good. Water is a little low. I get 1L at home for breakfast, and then it's just SodaPop and Coffee on my desk. Calories are the same walking the same at least 5 miles. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/07/2016:
is the soda diet? I drink diet soda. I am ok with drinking diet soda :)

Good job with your walking. I hope you knee is good for walking. You can always wear a brace for more stabilization I think - but def ask dr about it all when you go!

Glad you are doing good, keep up the great work OR. Glad to have you on our DD team.

OhioRaven on 04/07/2016:
Yep, I should definetly look into a brace. I'm wanting to 5k some more.

puddles on 04/07/2016:
Good morning Raven - Maybe a brace is the answer to your knee problem while you do your exercise or excessive walking. Pop did not think you drank that stuff anyway you get lL of water and that is good. Have a great day Raven.

OhioRaven on 04/08/2016:
You're right. I didn't used to drink SodaPop. Now it's like a reward for drinking all my water. But things got out of hand for me. I'll try to do better.

hollybelle on 04/07/2016:
If it's any consolation - my knee "acted up" a few years ago and it took some time, but it eventually got better on it's own - with some babying by me. It happened for no apparent reason and I did go to the doc who prescribed anti-inflammatory - which I took. Try some arthritis strength Tylenol - I use the store equalivent and it's great! 2 650 mg. tabs if you can take that stuff.

OhioRaven on 04/08/2016:
Thanks, Holly

Good Morning. My knee is worse. I haven't done anything to it. No exercise other than walking. Only climbing stairs occasionally. I noticed last night that I couldn't raise my foot high enough to put it on the coffee table. Thought about scheduling a Dr. appt. But I'm too tough for that. Let's hold off and see if it heals itself. Have a Healthy Day.

marshallsaya on 04/05/2016:
Oh no! I'm sorry your knee is worse. :(

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/05/2016:
and stop climbing stairs! duh!!!!!!!!!!! you are killin me!!!!!!

puddles on 04/05/2016:
Be careful Raven knees are so important and yes stairs always seem to get you into problems... Take care and have a great day. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Good Morning. Scale said I'm back down a little this week. Drinking more water again. Trying to stay busy. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/04/2016:
Glad you are doing ok & are feeling better now....

Volume of food is OK. If it's volume, bulky foods, it'll make you feel heavy at the time, but not from actual weight gain. That's what I do to maintain lower weight and better calories - bulky foods to fill me.

OhioRaven on 04/04/2016:
Yes ! I was Pleasantly surprised. I think I must have been bloated.

puddles on 04/04/2016:
Very good Raven you must feel real good about your results of the scale this morning. I am sure it will project you into a great week. Take care.

Good Morning. My pants are kinda tight. I think I've been letting my self go a little. I havent been keeping track of the volume I've been consuming. Extra beans, eggs, popcorn. I'll know more at tomorrow's weigh-in. Have a Healthy Day.

hollybelle on 04/03/2016:
I have gone overboard a little this past week - going to "reel it in" this week!

puddles on 04/03/2016:
It is amazing when we don't keep track how fast it can get away from us. I am sure you are not too much off track Raven. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/04/2016:
Volume is ok...but calorie excess is not! Behave yourself OR!

It seems sometimes I get ideas from people here, or it's just a coincidence. Yesterday, I think I had 3 mini bags of popcorn with my food (as my carbs!) throughout the afternoon & night! Just like when you eat all that sauerkraut and I start thinking I am "eating like OR!"
