Good morning. The Dr. Said take theses 6 pills and you should be better. I asked if they were antibiotics and he said yes. I said I wanted something less invasive to the flora in my gut. He said you could try to fight this on your own and it could develope into pneumonia. I took the 6 pills. I don't feel any better this morning. Worse if anything. Now I have to replace the good enzymes in my gut with plenty of yogurt, Sauerkraut and Pickles. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/16/2016:
Don't worry about your gut too much. I've been taking antibiotics for like a year for acne...must get off it.

And yes, at least you get to have tasty yogurt / sauerkraut & pickles (i like probiotic foods too)

puddles on 09/16/2016:
Sure hope you will be feeling better soon and that you will be back to your old self again. Have a great day Raven.

hollybelle on 09/16/2016:
Hope you feel better soon OR! At least you get to eat kraut! I love it! Yogurt isn't too bad, either. I like vanilla or maple Brown Cow Cream Top brand and I put fruit in it.

grannyannie on 09/16/2016:
Awww...sorry. Take the drugs and I hope you feel better soon.

 Good morning. Too busy for any exercise lately. And I'm feeling a little chest congestion with my cough. Something is definitely going around at work. Everyone there is coughing. So I got a Dr. appointment for today. I was pretty good at the Salad bar yesterday. Thanks to you guys. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 09/15/2016:
Good morning! Take it easy if you're getting sick. Too much exercise makes it harder to get better - I know, I've made the mistake of working out anyway.

puddles on 09/15/2016:
Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well and happy to hear that you did good at the salad bar yesterday. Take care and let us know what the DR. says. Have a great day Raven.

hollybelle on 09/15/2016:
Sorry you are feeling bad. Fall allergies are bad here. That may be why I am a little sluggish, myself. Hang in there. Better days ahead.

 Good morning. Good food, good water, no exercise. A little "coughy" this morning. Might be allergies or something. I will try to be a good boy at the Salad bar tonight. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/14/2016:
Ugh....everyone at my office is coughing. Me included. Another dry cough. I have a guy that sits opposite me...i really do think i may have gotten it from him. He was VERY sick. I don't have it like that thankfully. ...

Yes...be a good boy...luckily i'm so impressed at some restaurants with their quality of veggie offerings - even diners do a nice job lately!!!

I am in Queens, NY...so the selection i would presume is better than most cities.

grannyannie on 09/14/2016:
Good job! Hope your cough isn't the beginning of a cold. My allergies sometimes make me cough as well.

puddles on 09/14/2016:
Hope it is only allergies and nothing else more serious. Take care and behave at the salad bar tonight. Enjoy your day Raven.

Good morning. Yesterday I cut back on my scoop of peanut butter, Olive oil, and popcorn. Just trying for smaller portions. I got my 5 mile bike ride in after work and push mowed for almost hours. It was almost hard dark. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 09/13/2016:
Well done. Keep it up!

puddles on 09/13/2016:
Good morning Raven. Good job on cutting back and on your exercise. Have a great day.

hollybelle on 09/13/2016:
Good job! To fill up at end of smaller meals this time of year watermelon is good. Or any melon. I also use cucumbers and low cal Italian dressing. Its easy to make your own dressing using the dry packets of seasoning and less oil and more water/vinegar - play with the portions of the ingredients.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/13/2016:
that mix sounds tasty....yeah, its all about portions for me too, mine sometimes getting way too big...except for SF jello...sugar free stuff i don't really limit! lol

im71 on 09/13/2016:
Nice choices and good on the exercise! Great job! have a great day!

Bad morning. Up2 Lbs. I gotta try and turn this around. No exercise lately, but tonight definitely push mowing and cycling. And I'm gonna cut back on ? ? ? Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 09/12/2016:
Good morning Raven. You were expecting this so now you know and you will turn it around. Easy to fall back into our old habits. It is a constant job to keep ourselves in check with food. Wishing you a healthy week Raven.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/12/2016:
Remember Raven, this weight thing is something we both have to work on always. It's something EVERYONE works on. I even know some thin people that have to watch it...or they'll blow up too.

It's hard, but you know it's worth it. Weightloss is more based on what we ingest than exercise we do. Although both are important!

Maybe more of your veggies...remember, you can roast them too...

You are doing great. :-D Don't worry too much.

hollybelle on 09/12/2016:
Two pounds is just a flux. You can turn it around. If you can't think of what to cut back on - maybe it is your lower exercise. It's very hard to be perfect. Keep striving for consistence and moderation as much as you can! You are really doing well over all!

im71 on 09/12/2016:
Good Morning O R, Maybe the 2 lbs are fluid retention from salty foods? Drink lots of water today and that may flush any sodium out plus curb appetite. I know you'll get back down. Have a great day!

 Good morning. I'm a little worried about my weigh-in tomorrow. My water intake has been low lately. And my food intake has been pretty high. Have a Healthy Day.

im71 on 09/11/2016:
Good Morning Raven! Even if you think you're not going to have a good weigh-in, go weigh in anyway. If you don't, it just seems easier to not get back on track. Drink your water today and make good food choices and you may be surprised with your results tomorrow. I wish you good luck. Have a great day!

puddles on 09/11/2016:
Good Afternoon Raven - The important thing is that you are aware of your behavior and that you are trying to do something about it. We are all off here and there along the way. Get on the scale and then do what you have to do. Have a great day.

hollybelle on 09/11/2016:
You did the 5K yesterday so it all may even out! I hope you will not worry about the weigh in - no matter what the number is. We gotta spend our time working on something, right? I like im71's advice above. Hang in there!

 2nd Place. 34 minutes.  A girl beat me by 3 minutes.

hollybelle on 09/10/2016:
Yay! That's great - you did it!

Thanks, Holly.

Good morning. Sitting in McDonald's sipping on a coffee waiting for the 5K for Hospice to start at 10:00. I'll switch over to water soon. I'll stretch out good like you coaches (Hop, Puddy) have taught me and I'll let you know how it goes. Have a Healthy Day.

im71 on 09/10/2016:
Good Morning O R! I hope some day I too can do a 5K! You're so inspiring! Have a great day!

 Good morning. Got the garage painted. Over-ate at the Salad buffet again. No time for any bike rides today. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 09/08/2016:
Good morning. Well done. Could you come paint ours? :)

puddles on 09/08/2016:
Good morning Raven good job on getting your painting done. The buffet thing well today is another day.

hollybelle on 09/08/2016:
All the painting probably burns lots of calories, OR! Bet the garage looks good!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/08/2016:
I overate veggies yesterday.

Cole slaw salads, then tons of shrimp in a thai dish. lol. was good.
