Good Morning. Happy 4th. Todays official weigh-in has me 2 Lbs lighter. I've been playing a lot of places this weekend and there are lots of burgers and rich things offered to me. I can say "no thank you" to them now without much trouble. I guess my lifestyle really has changed. Now I gotta drop a couple more pounds. Have a Healthy Day.

Congrats Raven. It does after a while easier to turn things away. Good job all the best for your next week and Happy 4th.

Donkey on 07/04/2016:
Way to go!!! Keep up the good work!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/04/2016:

Jennax3 on 07/04/2016:

Happy Canada Day, to my neighbors to the North. I can't believe it's July already. I've been sticking to my diet of Grass, Grains and Greens. I put some fresh cut garlic in my SauerKraut the other day and it turned BLUE or BLEU. I'm gonna Google it. Have a Healthy (Canada) Day.

puddles on 07/01/2016:
Good morning Raven... interesting Blue sauerkraut. Thank you for the Canada Day wishes. Your celebration is coming up on the 4th I am sure that there is all sorts of celebrations going on all over your country also. Have a healthy Grass, Grains and Greens day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/01/2016:
Yes, a Happy Canada Day to Franny Puddles!

haha it turned blue!?

So you are eating really healthy lately? good for you.

I just had a really light lunch. Only some light popcorn, cabbage mixed with cole slaw made with only oil and vinegar and some light tuna. good for today....though not tasty for EVERYDAY! haha

Good Morning. Dr. Said every number on my chart looks great. We talked about my diet, my weight and my exercise. He knows about my knee and suggests I get back on my bicycle. I asked him if that was a prescription. He said it was. I'm going to Have to park my car and start driving my truck so I can throw the bicycle in the back. That's about it. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 06/28/2016:
Good morning Raven. Glad to hear that there is nothing seriously wrong. Dig out your bike and start doing your routine you use to have. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/28/2016:
So happy to hear of your wonderful Dr.report!

Proud of you, OR. Keep inspiring us young-uns.

Good Morning. Up 2 more pounds. But I think the bleeding has stopped. I haven't had any cheese doodles in a week. Going to the doctor tonight to go over the lab work they did on me Friday. I really cut a lot of yard work yesterday. Push mowing, weeding and planting flowers. I've been really tired these days. I'm not laying on the couch. But moving slower. Talk to you all later. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 06/27/2016:
Good morning Raven. Good luck at the dr. for your results. Lets us know what is going on. Take care.

Hello everyone. I've been backsliding for a while and it's time to confess. I've been eating Cheese Doodles. I've finished my last bag and I'm not going to buy any more. There... I feel better now. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 06/24/2016:
Confession is good for the soul. Glad to hear from you Raven. I guess now it is back to working on your healthy eating plan. Good luck Raven.

OhioRaven on 06/24/2016:
Yep. I had a bowl of SauerKraut today.

happy-1 on 06/25/2016:
I can only imagine how you must feel after piling in sauerkraut on cheese doodles... Maybe take the couch tonight!!!!

OhioRaven on 06/25/2016:
No, Happy. Doodles yesterday. SauerKraut today.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/25/2016:
lol...at least cheese doodles have a lot of air in them.

I'm always hungry these days...and I don't know why.

puddles on 06/22/2016:
Have you been taking in sugar stuff or just regular stuff. Sugar will make you crave and make you hungry. My solution is to fill up on vegetable (volume of it). Pasta also makes me crave more food.

Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2016:
It's emotional then....emotional hunger. Are you BORED? Is something bothering you? Is there a problem at work?

Horn_of_plenty on 06/23/2016:
Also, maybe you are restless? Are you exercising less? I like Puddles idea of eating more vegetables. Maybe you aren't even enough fat / protein?

Good Morning. I think I found Puddy's extra pounds that she lost. The scale put me at 189 Lbs today at weigh-in. 3 pounds up. It's my own fault and I know what I've done wrong. I've added a chicken breast, a bowl of oatmeal with sugary flavors in it, and one other bad thing that I don't want to tell,(ashamed) but I can get rid of it. I'm not exercising at all. Just walking. I'm gonna be good to myself this week and watch out for my lifestyle. I'm glad to see everyone doing good on here. I'm glad to be here. Have a Healthy Day.

cybermom4 on 06/20/2016:
HI OR - Definitely be good to yourself. It is still a mystery as to why our weight goes up so quickly when we have been so good for so long - but remember - 'be balanced' - Oh heck, you already know all this haha!! Just hang in there and enjoy your walks!! You'll get back in the groove soon!! :)

OhioRaven on 06/20/2016:
Thanks, Mom.

puddles on 06/20/2016:
Morning Raven - Another week is starting and you are motivated to watch your lifestyle that is all that counts. Have a great day Raven.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/20/2016:
Maintaining is hard. for the first time in my life, i'm happy with what i'm maintaining, and pretty content with my body as well.

Good Morning. Up a pound at weigh-in this morning. Blueberries are in season and my freezer is absolutely Full of BlueBerries. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

puddles on 06/13/2016:
Good morning Raven. I know where to go if I need blueberries now... they are so good and good for you. Enjoy. Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/13/2016:
GREAT job OR on the blueberries. Like F said, they are super duper healthy. :-)

My weight tends to fluctuate up to 4 lbs. Does yours? I think it's because i tend to volume eat...puts a ton of weight on. but only volume-wise...

OhioRaven on 06/13/2016:
I'm back and forth around 185.

OhioRaven on 06/13/2016:
Yes. 2 or 3 Lbs back and forth.

happy-1 on 06/13/2016:
Oooh. You need to make a cornbread cobbler with those blueberries!!! http://www.pbs.org/food/fresh-tastes/blueberry-cornbread-cobbler/

Good Morning. 185 at weigh-in today. I feel like I'm maintaing pretty well. My shirts still feel good. My Dad-Bod isn't looking too bad. Just a little beer belly. I'm still getting a lot of walking in. Over 7 miles yesterday. Hope everyone is doing good. Have a Healthy Day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/06/2016:
Hi OR! You sound good. Maintaining is HARD work.

It's easy to feel like you are losing steam or getting fat...but it's a matter of making the right choices and stabilizing your lower weight. It's what i'm doing now.

I'm still getting used to eating less calories per day.

It seems for me to maintain, i must eat an average of 1800's in calories for the week...

OhioRaven on 06/06/2016:
Thanks, HP

You're being a good dad! Taking care of yourself is taking care of your family too.
