Good morning guys

Yesterday was a great day my dinner was wonderful and my water was so so.  Woke up feel like I has lost and I did down 1lb - not sure what is happenning but it feels like when I first started a year and half ago but all is good.  Not going to wonder what is going on not going there just keep on doing what I am doing.

I have some shrimps left over so tonight I will make a curry shrimp with onions on a bed of rice and my ceasor salad.

We are having another snow storm then freezing rain but it will be back up to 18C by Saturday or 66F crazy weather.  I need a little bit of heat I am so cold dont dare put my nose out the door.  I was suppose to go out for breakfast today with my brother and s-i-l but cancelled not putting myself out there plus no need to go slip sliding around.

I accomplished so much yesterday it was unreal.  The only thing I have left to do today is do a bit of ironing yes not too many people still iron but I do I actually enjoy it.... lol  

That is it for me and I wish you all a great day.


Progress as of today: 83 lbs lost so far, only 21 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 04/11/2016:
Well done. The weather is being very weird over there!

OhioRaven on 04/11/2016:
Good call on the cancellation. Keep pumping your IRON.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/11/2016:
glad to hear the weather is improving! it's warmer by you than it is in NYC!

and congrats on another lb! way to go! who would have guessed that living in colder temps yields weight loss! LOL.

HATE ironing. I bought a steamer, but never used it! LOL.

hollybelle on 04/11/2016:
Good deal and congrats on the lost pound. Getting a lot done does feel good! Hope you get some Spring weather soon!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good food and water day.

My posting will not be as interesting a HOP simply because I am no longer 33 but 63.... lol but actually in my head I still think I am 39.... lol  

Today is laundry day I have to start doing laundry of my Summer clothes because some day soon I figure if we can stop getting snow this late in the year Summer will finally get here.  Apart from that I have no great plans dinner tonight will be a shrimp alfredo with linguini noodles and ceasar salad that much is already planned because I have everything out.  Picked up beautiful shrimps yesterday.

Wishing you all a great day.

I've seen your photos. You look like you're in your 30's.

puddles on 04/10/2016:
Your such a charmer Raven... lol

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/11/2016:
Well, if you want to know, there's no doubt in my head that you had a more interesting and busier day than me yesterday :) Thanks Puddy for dealing with my nutty posts...

You live a nice life and I hope I can enjoy mine when I am 63 just like you enjoy yours. Speaking of being 63, my dad is exactly your age and my mom just a year younger. You are still a young un' even though you have grandkids. Lol, my sister has my parents waiting on her to have babies maybe in a couple years. Not sure about myself though...no man and not really ready. I'm slow. :)

I hope it warms up soon for you. I'm actually happy & fine with the cold because I get allergies in spring. So, because it's been so cold, my allergies haven't begun. I am most allergic to tree pollen. Some years, when it's warm in March, I'll have allergies all the way March thru May or June. So this is good....

anyways, let me talk about you...keep enjoying your life. I love to read that you are getting together with family & friends and with the people you love.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great food and water day.

Did not feel like any weight loss today so not getting on the scale will wait till I feel it again.  I will probably weight myself in anoter week just to see if I am maintaining.  That is the important thing for me.

Going out to do a little bit of personal shopping.  Finally we have sunshine. 


wishing you all a great day.

Good to have some sun. It's been a gray week here and unusually cold. Keep at it - Puddles. You can get that scales to move!

I gotta hand it to ya', Puddy. You ARE Consistent.

puddles on 04/09/2016:
Yes I am. Thanks Raven

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/10/2016:
Personal shopping you say? I hope you got some something nice to wear...

Just like you, I can tell if I am leaner or not before stepping on the scale.

puddles on 04/10/2016:
Yes I got a new bra and panty set really nice and fancy... you know what I mean the ones you usually do not keep on very long.... lol

Good morning

Yesterday was a long and cloudy and snow day.  This weather as got stop.  My food and water so so yesterday nothing to complain about.

I got on the scale again this morning because I felt that maybe something had changed and I was right I am down 1lb again today.  I don't know what is happening but that is ok I do not need to understand I will just keep doing what I do.  This is definitely welcomed after my long plateau. 

Today is a iffy day not sure if I should attempt to go out would be nice to go to the grocery store out of salad and I missed my salad yesterday. 

Anyway that is about all for me nothing majorly interesting going on at this end same old same old...  Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/08/2016:
So happy for you! Maybe the cold is freezing off the pounds ;)

puddles on 04/08/2016:
lol... that would still not convince me to stay up north during Winter time. I hate it. Thank you.

OhioRaven on 04/08/2016:
Let's move to Jacksonville, Florida. I hate the winter too.

puddles on 04/08/2016:
When do you want to leave.... lol

cybermom4 on 04/09/2016:
Yeah - I know how it feels to be stuck. I have changed my weight on this DD site at least 4 times already b/c my weight just keeps fluxing - it is my fault - but Today is a new Day!!

puddles on 04/09/2016:
My original goal was 200 by last September so when September rolled around I decided to change it 180. I was already on a plateau at that time so I then allowed myself and additional two years to get to 180 that is probably a doable goal but maintenance is also of major importance for me. Progress will be slow but I am happy with it up to now.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food but water so so.... lol

I felt like I had lost this morning so I stepped on the scale yes down 1lb.  I guess finally after being the same for month my body has decided to maybe drop a few pounds again.  When I changed my goal weight I knew that the last miles of this race would take longer then the beginning and it is.  I figure that maintenance is great and going down slowly is also good.  I feel comfortable at this weight so it is no big deal anymore and I think anything now is a bonus. 

Not going out again today we got about 12" of snow yesterday and today will be rain so I decided that I would just wait it out till the good weather is back.  I certainly have enough of everything in the house and also have stuff to do.

Wishing you all a great day.

I'm glad you like the New You, Puddy.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/07/2016:
OMG too much snow! I guess you came back home a tad too early!?

Glad you have enough at home. Snow by you must be a true killer in the winters. No wonder you go down south.

Have a lovely day & congrats on the scale drop!

puddles on 04/07/2016:
thanks J.

You just keep doing the right things and the scales will reflect it! Yay!

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a good food and water so so.... oh well you can win them all.... lol

We are having a blizzard of a snow storm which means I am in for the next few days no way am I digging my Winter stuff out to go out there.  I have everything I need in the house so be it "hermit"... lol 

I made pot of French onion soup today one of my favorite I do not serve it with the bread and cheese but I love the taste and I had a left over of wine in the fridge so perfect way of getting rid of it.  It turned out real nice.  It is a taste that I so love. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday food so so and water good.

I did do well with food once I got back from breakfast out and I am happy with that but I was still over my regular consumption for the day and I accept that as a given for Mondays.  

Today got a few things done already and looking forward to the rest of the day being a me day.  We are expecting 15 cm of snow tomorrow now that spells ****ty whatever way you look at it.  I will not be going out.  Rain the next day so will all be gone.

Apart from that nothing crucial going on all is in the happy and good zone.  Exactly where I love to live the happy and content zone. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Sounds good. :) Except the snow!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/05/2016:
didn't mean to be rude in my comment back to you, it's just a very sore spot with me (my job & this industry), but not sore enough for me to leave yet. Not until I am in the academy.

puddles on 04/05/2016:
You were not rude just could not understand the difference. I understand now it is the benefits/pay and time off that the other gives you more.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/05/2016:
sometimes a nice breakfast out is just what the dr ordered!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/05/2016:
and also, moreover, I do not like the office atmosphere. if I ever get to choose what part of NYPD, I hope to be undercover one day! I like the movement on the job, the faster pace than sitting at a computer. I'm ready for a different career completely.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Today back to my routine of breakfast every Monday with my brother and s-i-l.  We had a lot of fun catching up and we certainly had our laughs for the day.  I have been doing this during my Winter away but now I have to take advantage of having the chance to do this.  I will be regulating my food since I had a regular breakfast which as a lot of the no no stuff but once a week is the exception I allow myself.  It is all in how you plan your food and I am so aware of that now that it is almost easy and does not require too much thought. 

Apart from that I am back home and just going to get a few things done and have a relax day. 

Wishing you all a great day.

yes, weight loss is def more about how you plan the food than what food you choose. meaning, if you can find a way to fit it in, by all means do it! :)

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

Not much on my agenda for today just a few things I have to pick up - you would think I got it all done the other day but when you start cooking you realize that you forgot some stuff that you use all the time.  It will be like that for a little while up until I get the house up and running again. 

We are having a nice and sunny day but I am definitely finding the weather on the cool side - I need to bundle up because I do not want to get a cold especially now. 

Wishing you all a great day.

80 pounds THATS AMAZING!! good job!!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/04/2016:
So you need your seasonings and extra maybe garlic and/or onion or herbs stuff? all the extras?

Speaking of bundling up, that's my plan for today too - turtleneck and a fleece so I don't get sick & can be extra warm and comfortable at work :)

Good morning

All is good at this end food and water.

Got all my cupboards and fridge replenished.  What a grocery that was.  It took me almost all day to do all the stores and the trip back to my place so that the stuff that needed to be in the fridge and then back out. 

Now today is just going to be a settling to a routine.  All unpacked and house is clean.  All is back to normal. 

Wishing you all a great day.
