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!"

Good Afternoon. I'm doing good. Hope you are too. Have a Healthy Day !

Keep doing good, OR! Have a good week.

Good Morning. Same old 185 pounds this morning at weigh-in. I'm a lean,mean,maintaining machine. Hope everyone good. Have a Healthy Day

hollybelle on 03/28/2016:
Love it! Maintaining is a bigger success than losing in my opinion! Yay!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/29/2016:
Doesn't it feel good to be lean & mean! I am lean 7 mean too....it feels so good OR! I don't think I ever wanna be "fat" again! I am totally enjoying my new jeans size too. It feels so good to be back where I used to be when I was in my very lower 20's! Back to where I was 8-10yrs ago. So nice. And I have more muscle now in my arms - so - I do weigh 5lbs more than I did 10yrs ago, but I am the same jeans size!

HappyEaster. Good Morning. At the breakfast bar yesterday, 2 helpings of scrambled eggs with mushrooms, onions and peppers. So it was like an opened face omelette. 2 "fried" chicken tenders, a turkey sausage and a thin piece of ham about as big as a silver dollar. I skipped any lunch and just had a potato and black beans for my dinner. So I think I did good enough at balancing the day. Have a Healthy Blessed Easter.

hollybelle on 03/27/2016:
Wonderful! I always have a hard time avoiding, French toast!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/27/2016:
Yes, sounds tasty and balanced and reasonable for sure. Good change of pace for you. Happy Easter OR!

puddles on 03/27/2016:
Good morning and Happy Easter Raven. Are you traveling again I have not read all the posts lately but you sound like you are out of your element. Have a great day and enjoy.

Good Morning. Today is the last day my Son is in town. We are having breakfast at Frische's breakfast bar. I'm hoping to give a good report tomorrow. Have a Healthy Day.

hollybelle on 03/26/2016:
The breakfast bar can be challenging. I hope you could make good choices and feel good about that- or, if not- let it go and move on! We can always do better at the next meal!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/26/2016:
Oh, I forgot your son was here from the last time I commented on your diary. Love Chinese buffets because if they are decent good ones, they have lots of veggies to choose from! I've never heard of that breakfast bar, is it good!? Take care of your knee and don't overdo. My shoulder is the same way. I will work out up to the last day of this month, then take a much needed rest away from the gym & let my body fully relax and recharge until May.

Good Morning. Doing good enough. Water and food are good. No real exercise Just warehouse walking. I still feel my knee "give" a little if I climb or step wrong. But nothing serious. Have a Healthy Day.

hollybelle on 03/24/2016:
Do you think you could rehab that knee with a light bandage or brace? I went through a spell where my knees took turns kind of moving around when I least expected it and those things helped me. Keep on keeping on, OR!

thinkpositive on 03/24/2016:
Have you had your knee looked at? Any possibility it's a torn meniscus? Sounds like how my knee felt before surgery.

OhioRaven on 03/25/2016:
I'll look into it. Thanks.
