Not much going on here.   I am finally settling down and getting some rest.  I have done my routine but that is about it.  I am going to the cottage for a two days at end of week Fri and Sat will see if I stay til Sun. 

Enjoying the cooler weather.  Real good sleeping weather.

Wishing you all a great day.

It is really great sleeping weather :) lately I find myself sleeping at least 8 hours if not closer to 9! I guess my body is really reveling in the fact that I can rest more - rest helps us in countless ways :)

Enjoy the cottage. Are you going with family? Seems like great weather for the outdoors as well..

I hope you feel more energized soon!

Umpqua on 09/23/2015:
I agree that it's wonderful sleeping weather, but it makes it harder to get up when the alarm goes off :) Sounds like your week is going really well!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was very good food and water.

Today just got back from breakfast with my brother and S-I-L.  We had a blast.  Eventhough we had seen each other on Saturday at my place for dinner we still had all sort of stuff left over to talk about.  It seems to be unending this conversation.

Today did a few errand and I am in for the rest of the day.  It was real cool this morning had to wear a small jacket.  The cooler weather is here and I am quite happy about that the heat wave time is not my cup of tea.

Wishing you all a great week and I will talk later.


PS the scale is not moving but that is ok.  I can live with that.

Good morning guys

yesterday was good food and water.

Today is grocery day out of everything in the house -  a lot of the basic stuff that are the go to just in case I get hungry and nothing else left.  Definitely stocking up on my vegs and protein for a few days.  The kids are coming for dinner on saturday will be nice to be with family.  I might have my brother and s-i-l also over at the same time I still have to contact them but usually its is a done deal when I call them.  Anything to be with family them also.  Another family reunion all 7 of us.   lol.....

That is about all for me for today.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning guys

Yesterday was excellent day. 

I had breakfast with friend then went to driving range and hit a basket of ball about 120 of them.  Then just relaxed for the rest of the day doing my regular routine.

Today afternoon meeting with friend.  Except for that it will be a easy day.

Had a good night of sleep got up around 8 that is good for me. 

Have a great day.

You make me want to go and hit some balls, Puddy.

I love to hit balls, but don't like to actually play golf - go figure! Good deal!

A good day! And to sleep until 8- heaven!

Sleep can really make the difference:-)

Good to see you're rolling with it--the scale will move soon I'm sure. But you've got this whether it's sooner or later!

Yesterday was very good food and water.

Breakfast went well and I did good for the rest of the day.

Today again out for breakfast but will do the light breakfast on the menu fruits cottage cheese and toast.  I will keep it in check and it is a pleasant change from the regular stuff.

This afternoon no idea what will be on my schedule but all is good.

Hope you all have a great day.

Hi guys

Yesterday was good food and water.

Today was  breakfast with brother and S-I-L.  All was good.  I weighed myself this morning and the scale did not move that is ok.  The body is on break.  I can live with that. 

The rest will be a slow lost but in the past months I have average 2 to 4 lbs a month I can live with 1 to 2 lbs a month I can live with 1lb a month it is no big deal now.  I really enjoy the maintenance part of the weight loss. 

That is about it for today I have gone out I have had great laughs and I am so grateful for all of it.

Wishing you all a great day.

horn_of_plenty on 09/14/2015:
Sometimes after the body is on break, there's a nice big loss afterwards...or even any loss is nice and I am sure it will come for you...one pound a month is def nice too :)

hollybelle on 09/15/2015:
Great post! You sound peaceful at this time! That is a good place to be!

livinglight on 09/15/2015:

Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was a good day water and food - a little high on protein but I must have needed it. 

Another rainy day and cool 16C (62F approx.) but tomorrow back up to 26C (82F) real crazy weather and then will remain hot for remainder of week.  The month of Sept is turning out to be quite warm not normal because Fall is my favorite weather month.

Today will be chicken with something not sure yet probably a stir fry peppers, onions and chicken over rice.  Now that sounds like a plan.  Decision made. 

Not going out will be a stay in day.

Wishing you all a great day.

I doubt the scale will move tomorrow because I do not feel it.  The same would be as good all things set aside the same is comfortable.  I really think my body is taking a break - funny how it has a mind of its own ..... lol...  as long as my craving are in check I really don't care too much.  If the cravings come back well that would be a different story.  I enjoy this weight and it feel comfortable and I feel healthy. 

Ok now I am finish.

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

It seems the scale is stuck but not to worry it does that all the time.  From the start of this journey it did not move for weeks and then in one week several drops really unusual way my systems seems to work.  The important thing is that it works. 

Today not sure what will come up - might be going out eventhough we are having a rainy day actually it will be rainy for the next two day.

I am grateful for some rain because it has been so hot in the pass few weeks.  Today will be 14C (58F) and just a few days ago it was almost 40C with humidex (105F) aprox. quite a drop but really appreciated.  

Not sure what to eat today but I think I will cook up some chicken breasts on my George forman grill and use it in the next few days in different way.  That will eliminate the decision making for a few days.  I always like to have thing prepared/option to cook or not and also that it is ready as soon as I get hungry.  

Anyway you guys have a great day.

I'm sure you've got all your favorite sweaters all lined up for the week. Every time I look at your blog I'm amazed at the way you've turned your health around. You and the others here at the DD are the reason we have as much success as we do. Thanks Puddy.

puddles on 09/12/2015:
I have been lucky because I was not sure if I could do it again. I did not think I had it in me to loose 100 lbs again. Last time in 2000 it had seemed real easy and maintained it til 2011 pre knee injury but this time it was harder and maybe it is age I don't know but all in all I have depended on all of you guys to get me through this and to make my journey easier. It take a community to do things.

Umpqua on 09/12/2015:
The great thing is you know your system works. So as long as you keep at it you WILL continue to see results. Good plan on your chicken, I have some leftovers that I need to find something healthy to do with!

horn_of_plenty on 09/13/2015:
I agree with the others - once we are more in tune with how our individual bodies work, we can make better choices more often that suit us best. At 33, I am def still learning.

That is a huge drop in temp! Hardly ever will we get such a drop here near New York City.

Soon I will start grilling my own meat again and trying not to buy everything already prepared...you tempt me - as I do own a grill!

Good morning guys

Yesterday food and water was great and no wine surprise surprise.

I have to run some errand and the regular house stuff today.  The weather is wonderful and just the way I like it warm but no humidity well not much humidity.  Fall is finally starting to cool the place down.  It is pleasant.

Not much else going on in my life right now so I will wish you all a great day and a great weekend.
