Good morning

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

We are having rain today and unfortunately I have to go out - bad planning on my part.  It's a good think I don't melt in the rain...  now that would be the perfect diet....  let it rain.  lol

Having my skype dinner tonight and all is in the slow cooker plus it will be extra meal for the next few days. 

Wishing you all a great day.


Progress as of today: 79 lbs lost so far, only 25 lbs to go!

Have a Good skype, Puddy.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/18/2016:
Enjoy your Skype dinner. Yesterday I had to go out in the snow. Luckily, it wasn't sticking to the roads. And I didn't have to clean very much off my car so it was not an inconvenience. After all..it's expected during the winter haha!

I always try not to let the weather get me down.

Awesome50 on 01/18/2016:
Your melting in the rain weight loss program sounds great to me! You made me laugh! If only that were the fix ... Haha!

H82BFat on 01/18/2016:
It's been raining a lot here too. I have to watch the weather reports just to see what day, if any, I can actually go outside to walk! Tiresome, but... at least it's not snow!! Hope your skype dinner went well - love me some slow cooker food!!

Good morning

Yesterday was a very good day food and water and the relaxation. 

We got a lot of rain yesterday but today is turning out to be beautiful will definitely take adavantage of that.  I need to go to the grocery store for a few items and then the rest of the day is mine to do as I wish.

Not sure what I feel like eating but probably meat veg and a starch main dish still have to invent it... lol  Tomorrow is my skype dinner again with friend.  The Sunday routine. 

Hoping you all have a great day.

Good evening

Yesterday was a good food and water day.

Today was an amazing relax me day.  We had a rainy day and decided to just pamper myself.  Facial, nails, long bubble bath with good book and ooooppppps  a glass of wine.  Oh well it seem to make sense this afternoon.... lol 

Now just watching a bit of TV and will get an early bed time.  I love these days and I think that is why we have rainy days...

Have a great evening

Good morning

Yesterday all was good food and water.

Another beautiful sunrise and partly clear sky.  We are getting rain tomorrow or late in the day today cannot complain the week has been wonderful. 

I really have no plans for today we will see what today turns out like.

I am making a mish mash of meat, noodle, stewed tomatoe, veg and a some melted cheese on top for dinner nothing fancy but very tasty. 

I am definitely feeling a little bit of pain from the swinging of the clubs yesterday it must have been the rotation of the hips and waist.  A little bit of pain is good I guess.  It was fun and definitely will go again to that course.

Nothing else here wishing you all a great day.

I think we have the same golf swing. Ha-ha !

grannyannie on 01/14/2016:
Well done. Hope your soreness eases quickly.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/14/2016:
Whenever I do most anything out of my normal workouts, I am so sore! I know what you mean! If I were swinging clubs, I am sure i'd be sore too!

Good morning

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

It is another beautiful day - going for a golf game today just a 9 hole and they are all par 3s but no cart so will be a good walk, good swings and some exercise for the day.  Not to mention a lot of sun and getting my vitamins.  Sunshine definitely makes a difference in my mood I can understand the people that suffer from the lack of it. 

I am not planning anything fantastic for dinner probably going to have a vegy omelette with a bit of cheese.  I love my breakfast for dinner and that is what today will be.

Wishing you all a great day.

Rarely can I do that Raven That would mean I would have to be good what is the fun in that... lol I am terrible but enjoy it.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/13/2016:
Lately I crave tasty egg dishes that I can add veggies into – maybe I’ll make one for lunch tomorrow here! This morning I had a tasty fried egg on toast with ½ avocado. Was tasty but of course I’m hungry 3 hours later as usual! Enjoy the sunshine – it’s definitely something I miss now with the steady office job.

puddles on 01/13/2016:
I love my eggs also. I have them in the evening so that if I get hungry it is probably time to go to bed.

innerpeace on 01/13/2016:
Sounds like you are having a great time and being frugal with your food choices. Have a great time.

H82BFat on 01/13/2016:
Nice!! I've never golfed before and yet I have the feeling that walking on a golf course can be pretty tranquil. Hope you had enjoyed your game AND the walking!!

cybermom4 on 01/14/2016:
You are doing Fantastic!! Your egg meal sounds yummy right now (it is 6:30 am on Thursday)

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

We are having another beautiful day just waiting for it to warm up a little more the wind to die down a bit before I sit out in the sun and get my vitamins for today.

Later I am going to cook a bit so that I don't have to for the next few days since the are forecasting great weather - I certainly do not want to spend it inside the condo.

Really have no other errands or anything else to do today.  Planning a nice long walk on the beach later today probably walk up to the pier and back. 

I am so grateful for everything I have and for the health to be able to do all of what I do. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/13/2016:
Nice to get the cooking done when the weather isn't as nice...i'd do the same for sure :)

Have a wonderful day & enjoy your walk. Back when I used to walk a ton, I loved long walks. My longest lasted 8 miles (but that was a bit too much, honestly!)

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water but did have wine definitely a plus..... lol

I had my skype dinner with friend and brother and S-I-L.  We did the conference call skype since this was between 3 difference homes.  So much fun.  We had been use to going out for breakfast every Monday and we were all missing it.  It was a 4 hrs dinner and a lot of laughs.  My brother is going in the hospital for pre operation stuff on the 14 of this month and then his operation on the 20th so that was another reason to all get together before that.

Today we are expecting another sunny day actually the next 4 days will be sunny.  I am really enjoying the weather lately. 

Not much else going on so wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a so so day nothing crazy with food and water was good.

I am having a unusual day slightly on the disappointed side this morning.  It is nothing that major just disappointed in somebody.  It too will pass, not in my control, need to move on and make the best of today.

Errands today and another skype dinner tonight with a friend that will be nice to have some company for dinner and maybe that is exactly what I need.  Sometimes people are put in your path exactly when you need them - ain't that the truth - I am looking forward to tonight.  There is always something to look forward to if you look long enough... lol.

On that note I will wish you all a great day.

I agree with people being put in our path for a reason. Sorry you're disappointed in someone .... that's always a sad feeling. Enjoy your skype dinner tonight! That's a positive way to end your day.

puddles on 01/10/2016:
Thanks Dinner went well and I feel much better. Tomorrow will be a great day. Moving on.

grannyannie on 01/11/2016:

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a very good day food and water.

My scale is not moving but maintaining.  I am beginning to think that maybe this where I should stay at.  It seems that my plateau has lasted so long now.  I have to admit I am comfortable where I am and if I stayed like this it would be good.  I am having no problem maintaining this with a play up and down one pound or so which is the norm for me but I can't seem to get the scale to go down.  I have decided that I am not going to go crazy over this because physically and mentally I am at a point that I feel good with my looks and my health.  I know that 205 is high but I enjoy being able to shop in whatever store I want and enjoy being back into my old clothes and overall it is good.  I will let it go and just live and not worry that the darn scale is not going down.  I am sure that when it decides to go down again it will go down I am not going to obsess over it.  Life is good. This does not mean that I can do anything I want because that would be looking for trouble I am just going to do what I am doing now and let it work itself out.

Not much on my agenda for today - rainy day.

Thank you for letting me vent.

Wishing you all a great day.

puddles on 01/09/2016:
Exactly I feel good at this weight.

grannyannie on 01/09/2016:
As OR says, health. Health should always be our number one motivation.

puddles on 01/09/2016:
Yes health is the main thing and this is good for me. thanks

OhioRaven on 01/09/2016:
I'm approaching maintenance and weighing-in and looking at my scale this way. I'm using it to see if I'm doing something Wrong. Not if I'm doing something Right... And I would still bring you flowers at 205.

puddles on 01/09/2016:
Cute Raven thank you. You are just looking for another escape down South.... lol

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/09/2016:

Ohio Raven is so cute these days to all the ladies on here ! Lucky we have a man in our DD group!

Awesome50 on 01/09/2016:
Great perspective!

Donkey on 01/10/2016:
Sometimes the scale stays the same for quite some time before the next round of weight loss. In the meantime, maintaining is better than gaining. I think it shows you're doing something right!

Good morning

Yesterday was a so so day but nothing crazy food a little off but healthy stuff jus some extra and my water was real good.  The scale did not move so I am ok. 

Another good day cloudy but mild no rain expected til tomorrow morning.

Sunday I am having dinner with my family via Skype we are scheduled for 6:00 pm - me in Myrtle and them back in Canada.  This is a great way for us to keep having our regular family dinner together and getting caught up on what is going on in everybodies life.  It is really neat - the kids love it and it is nice to have noise around while I eat my dinner.  It is a great invention Skype.   I know I am just a picture on a laptop on their dinning room table but it sure feel real to me and them. 

So a few errands today and a little bit of shopping just for the fun of it and that will be a good day for me.

Wishing you all a great day.

What a nice idea - Skype for dinner. I Skype all the time, mostly granddaughters.

biscottibody59 on 01/08/2016:
What a cool idea!

Any good stuff found on your shopping trip?

puddles on 01/09/2016:
I always love to by bras in the USA they seem to be better made and find so many pretty ones. I also need some flats for daily outings. Just need a few things nothing much. I would love to find some cute summer dresses. I am glad that dresses are back in again so much more comfortable then pants and tops for the summer. Well I think I have spent enough now..... lol
