GoodMorning. 1696 cals, 102 h2o, 5 mile bike ride, finally. I haven't been on the bike path for so long. It was good to get back. I'm drinking my water pretty good as long as I have is stacked up in front of me. I'm pretty sure I haven't gained any more weight but when I see my reflection in Windows I can still see belly fat. Sorry I haven't responded to the latest posts. I've just been real busy at work. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

Hi Raven glad to see you are getting back to your routine of water and exercise. You have to give that belly a chance it will go. Have a great day.

livinglight on 08/22/2015:
Have a great day :)

grannyannie on 08/22/2015:
Good for you on the exercise!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/22/2015:
We are always our own worst critics if you know what I mean. Some people may not even take the time to look at their reflections in windows, you know!? of course I know what you mean OR, bc you can bet I am always checking out my own reflection when I can! but don't judge yourself too harshly or be your own enemy. The changes you have made in your own lifestyle are quite amazing...the ones I have read over the time you've been a member here. Just keep at it, never stop, and you can always be proud of yourself and how far you chose to come.

ohioraven on 08/22/2015:
Thank you, HP.

hollybelle on 08/23/2015:
Hey OR - I relate to your comment about the reflections in the windows. I was riding my bike early one Sunday morning and saw my reflection in a store window. But I figured out a solution - I just didn't look the next time and kept focused on the fact that I was out riding my bike and eating better than most of the population in my town and the heck with anything else. Keep up the good work!

thinkpositive on 08/23/2015:
I hear you on the reflection in the window. For me, I can ignore that , it's the photos of me that hurt. And that actually are motivating me at this time. You are doing a super job- an inspiration!

GoodMorning. 1949 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise again. Worked late and was hungry MOST of the day. Sauerkraut, pickles and PopCorn kept me from going over. Also a hot cup of coffee seems to helps with my hunger. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/21/2015:
Coffee helps me when I feel a bit hungry as well. Good calories.

biscottibody59 on 08/21/2015:
Enjoy your weekend!

hollybelle on 08/22/2015:
Taco Bell and KFC cruel and unusual treatment!!! When pressed I have had the alfresco tacos, though - that and the green beans were a great choice!!! Good job!

puddles on 08/22/2015:
Hi Raven. Coffee also works for me. You are doing good at getting back to your routine. It take a while to get everything back to the way it was. Have a great weekend.

GoodMorning. 1916 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. The gang stopped at a KFC/Taco Bell last night. It was 2 restaurants in one. I had a family sized green bean a one alfresco taco. Working late again tonight. I brought in a bowl of sauerkraut. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/20/2015:
Well done OR!

Umpqua on 08/20/2015:
Sounds like decent choices for fast food. I hope today is a good one!

GoodMorning. 1993 cals, 102 h2o, no exercise. Worked late and got a lot of warehouse walking in. It was kinda hard to drink all my water, cause I wasn't used to it. But my bottles are all lined up on my desk today and I know it will get easier to drink them daily. Hope everyone is good. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/18/2015:
Good morning OR! Have a healthy day.

Umpqua on 08/18/2015:
It sounds like you did really well on your vacation and are getting back into the sing of things!

puddles on 08/18/2015:
Good evening Raven - I guess must be hard getting back to work after being away. Oh yes water - you will get back to your routine. Have a great evening.

livinglight on 08/18/2015:
Have a great day, also challenging myself to drink more water. Good luck!

thinkpositive on 08/18/2015:
Warehouse walking counts as exercise, right? How did you decide how much water you need?

ohioraven on 08/18/2015:
I got an App for that.

GoodMorning. 979 cals, some water (2bottles), 5 mile bike ride AND push mowing. Weight is up 1 pound. I'm hoping this will take care of itself with the increase of my regular exercise. It was good to back to the bike path. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/17/2015:
Could be fluid gain. Sounds like you are doing great.

thinkpositive on 08/17/2015:
I'm thinking it will come off by the end of the week.

GoodMorning. 1698 cals,no water, some push mowing. I finally got a good calorie burn from push mowing yesterday. It's good to see new people signing on to the DD. Weigh-in tomorrow. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/16/2015:
Push mowing sounds like a great workout to me! Have a great day.

thinkpositive on 08/16/2015:
Good on the calorie count. Always easier to stay on track in our own environment.

Good luck with the weigh-in today Raven and have a great week.

GoodMorning. 2064 cals, no water no exercise. Hey it's good to be back home again. A little too much PopCorn on the road. Going to cut grass today at the church and at home. I'm itching to get back on the bike path too. Weigh-in on Monday. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/15/2015:
Welcome back home.

ohioraven on 08/15/2015:
Thanks, Annie.

thinkpositive on 08/15/2015:
It's always nice to be home. hard to exercise on the road.

ohioraven on 08/15/2015:
Yep, my FitBit said I ate more calories than I had burned all week. I'm afraid the scale might go up this Monday. But we'll see.

biscottibody59 on 08/15/2015:
I've been through a few popcorn phases. Just driving burns a lot of calories, so you may have a surprising:-) weigh-in!


ohioraven on 08/15/2015:
Hope your right biscuit. Cutting lots of grass today and hoping to run tomorrow.

GoodMorning.1983 cals, no water no exercise. On the Road Again. Headed back to Germantown Ohio. I've made many new friends, Dodged a bunch of PotLuck meals, and collected lots of Smiles. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

grannyannie on 08/14/2015:
You did great avoiding all the tempting meals! Have a good trip back.

thinkpositive on 08/14/2015:
Good job of avoiding the potlucks. Hope your trip back is a pleasant one.

I'm happy to hear you had a nice trip!

GoodMorning. 1974 cals, no water, no exercise. According to my FitBit. I'm eating more calories than I'm burning. I'm going to try a little more walking today. I've seen a couple of bike trails down here. (DANG) If only I would have known ahead of time. I played in a Smokey little bar in Lake City Forida last night. (Country music) Tonight will be my last night down here. South Jacksonville tonight then headed home in the morning. I got the boots yesterday from Mr. BigWheel. I put some insoles in them and wore them the rest of the day. But after visiting his store it seems more of a Stephen King place. Pop Merrill and the Emporium Galorium in "The Sun Dog" or Mr. Gaunt in "Needful Things". Hope everyone is having a Healthy Day.

puddles on 08/13/2015:
Good morning Raven. Your holiday is almost over did you take only one week. Anyway enjoy your last days. Have a great day. You have been doing real good.

Umpqua on 08/13/2015:
That store sounds pretty cool. Safe return travels to you!

ohioraven on 08/13/2015:
Thanks guys. I DO like an adventure.

hollybelle on 08/13/2015:
Oh, Needful Things! Love that book! Glad you got the boots. Enjoy!
