Good morning Raven. Yes sometime you just have to go back to what works for you and what you are comfortable with. You tried it and now you know. Have a great day Raven.

hollybelle on 09/19/2015:
Plain yogurt - not for me, either! Stick with what you like! Have a good one, OR!

GoodMorning, er' afternoon. 1866 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. Can't believe I'm this late checking in. I'm sorry I'm not responding to everyone's posts. I'm just busy. I'm always reading them though. Have a Healthy Day.

horn_of_plenty on 09/19/2015:
Just stay happy, OR :) even if you aren't doing things exactly on schedule, they will still all get done. Sometimes life has changed and periods when we are busy and like you said our schedule shifts a little to adjust...sorry for being weird lol...but this is what I could come up with after reading your entry :)

It sounds like you're having a good week, Ohio!

GoodMorning. 1946 cals, 102 h2o, push mowing. I was hungry yesterday. I thought I would go over on my calories but I didn't. Fast food tonight, but I don't know where. I'm kinda hoping for the KFC/TacoBell/GasStation place down the highway. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/16/2015:
You did well yesterday Raven. Enjoy your evening at the fast food place. I have outgrown the fast food joints but also I have never been one for the fast food joints either so it was easy to give up completely. Last time I was at one of them was last Winter when I got a craving for a Wendy's burger about Feb I think. You are doing real good keep it up and have a great day.

hollybelle on 09/16/2015:
Good on not going over cals! Good exercise, too! Ole at Taco Bell and the Fresca Tacos - hope you can have some good choice in there somewhere!

thinkpositive on 09/16/2015:
Hi, Ohio! A good day. You are the master of finding healthy foods at fast food restaurants.

biscottibody59 on 09/16/2015:
Too bad Wendy's doesn't have that pretty awesome salad bar it used to have years ago!

GoodMorning. 1797 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. I pulled up to the bike path and had a flat front tire. Went and got it fixed. Too late to ride. Tonight I'll be working late and then push mowing the lawn at church. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/15/2015:
Good morning Raven - what a bummer about the bike ride. Well you will get your exercise with the push mower. Your doing good. Have a great day.

Umpqua on 09/15/2015:
Too bad about the bike ride. RE the loose skin, it should improve with time and as you increase muscle tone. You could also try cocoa and shea butter, Vitamin E cream and other girly stuff like that if it bothers you.

ohioraven on 09/15/2015:
I just don't want to look like a shar pei puppy.

hollybelle on 09/15/2015:
I hate when I go to ride and tire is flat. Well you exercised hauling it around to get it fixed, anyway!

GoodMorning. Yep ! Down another pound. 1318 cals, 1 bottle of water, no exercise. I think I'm about ready to get into Maintenance Mode. I'm not going to anything different really. Add more Exercise comes to mind. I think I'll just level out wherever it is I'm supposed to be. I still have loose flabby skin. I'm thinking it will go away in time. Hope everyone has a good Healthy day.

biscottibody59 on 09/14/2015:
Good job!

Unfortunately loose skin doesn't all disappear without surgery, but since you've done this gradually the chances are probably better for it to shrink a bit.

You can also strengthen the underlying muscle, which will fill out some of the space left from weight loss.

puddles on 09/14/2015:
Congrats Raven So was 184 your goal. I can't remember. If you feel comfortable at this weight then that is good. Have a great week Raven.

hollybelle on 09/15/2015:
When I have lost weight in the past and had the loose skin issue - it was my experience that over time - with weight maintenance and ab exercises it gets better! Congratulations on reaching your goal!

GoodMorning. 1651 cals, 2 bottles of h2o, No exercise. I can't believe I did as good as I did with my food. I didn't want to let you guys down. Thanks for the encouragement. I had my usual breakfast at home. Skipped McDonald's, skipped the festival food, and at the picnic I had a bowl of beans, some carrots and a bowl of mixed fruit. Finished my night with some cottage cheese and popCorn. Hope today goes as well. Weigh in tomorrow. Have a Healthy Day.

horn_of_plenty on 09/13/2015:
Great calories and great choices. Veggies and fruit are always the best selections for the least calories. You will def see a decline when you step on that scale! Keep going with your positive mindset. You make me wanna make good choices today and tonight at my family dinner :)

puddles on 09/13/2015:
Good afternoon Raven. You did super well yesterday amazing how determination works. Good choices and a lot of strong will. I know you will have moved the scale tomorrow. Have a great day.

Umpqua on 09/14/2015:

GoodMorning. 2274 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise again. I went to new place we call the HillBilly Night Club and over ate last night. It's a good place with good people. The food is kinda fattening though. I can't see getting on my bike today. I'm at 4 different places today ending with a Country music Picnic. I'll do my best to try and not over do it today. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/12/2015:
Good morning Raven. It seems you are busy with your music more then before or is that my imagination. I am sure you will try hard to be good today with your food. Have a great day and enjoy.

ohioraven on 09/12/2015:
You're right, Puddy. I'm a busy boy. Ok, we'll both try to be good today. You have a great day too.
