Good morning guys

Yesterday was another excellent day food and water.

This week will be busy.  Wednesday out for breakfast with my brother and sister-in-law.  Friday night retirement party for one of my girlfriends.  Saturday might be going out on a dinner date now that is interesting. LOL LOL   It will be a lot of days of eating out I will just have to manage my choices and let it go.  There is an saying in OA (Overeaters Anonymous) Let go and let God and that is exactly what I will have to do.  Sometimes we are just powerless on some of the things and we have to trust that all will all be ok.

Yesterday I did all my errands and picked up the groceries I needed which are much less since I will be out soo much.  It was good to get them done because I think the weather will change in the next few days and you know what I think about Winter weather - not a fan. lol

I have been fighting the scale this morning I just feel like my body has loss some weight - you know how sometime you can just feel it - but that would get me going again of weighing myself daily and that is for me a rollercoaster mind twisting of ups and downs so I will resist.  

Wishing you all a great day.



Progress as of today: 26 lbs lost so far, only 58 lbs to go!

Holiday parties are difficult.Dinner date sounds fun!Iknow what you mean-I just keep focusing on the "event" not the meal, difficult as that is. You are doing well, good luck!

skinnygrlwithin on 12/02/2014:
This is definitely a rough time of year with all the parties and eating out but like you said you just have to let it go. Stay positive.

Jezebel on 12/02/2014:
I say have fun on your date. Order the chicken. :)

puddles on 12/02/2014:
Yes the retirement party and the date is at the same restaurant so I will have the ch. brochette with rice. I know the restaurant real well. Thank you

biscottibody59 on 12/02/2014:
Fun and challenges all mixed up together--you'll do fine with your mindset I'm sure!

SkinInTheGame on 12/03/2014:
I'm with you - I wish I could punch out my scale right now in a death match! Keep on with your goals!

Good morning all

Yesterday was excellent food and water.

Welcome to December - hard to believe we are in the last month of the year.  It seems the years go fast and faster every year.  I think the older you get the faster they go - as a child I remember Summer holidays lasting forever and now Summer comes and it seem to be over in a week. 

Yesterday was an amazing day it seems that I was so busy that I did not think about eating until 7pm I thought about Horn of Plenty with the fasting but of course this was not done on purpose.  My intake of food yesterday was low because of the situation and my water was the normal 7 to 8 cups.  Maybe this will be the turning point of my plateau we will see.  It is really rare that I do not think of food.  I got up real late it was 10 am and of course my day was late at starting so by the time I got everything done it was late afternoon and I was really not hungry but just wanted to relax before eating and that is how I ended up eating at 7pm. 

Today will be not as busy so I doubt very much that super will be so late.  It really does not matter as along as I stick to my being on track that is my main goal.

That is about all for me for today wishing you all a wonderful day.

skinnygrlwithin on 12/01/2014:
I thought the same thing as you... December 1 already?? Where does the time go!? Glad you're doing so well.

biscottibody59 on 12/01/2014:
Hard to believe it's nearly 2015. I hear you on how fast this year has gone!

BTW, congrats on the 2# loss for November. I admire your consistency!

Good afternoon guys

Yesterday was another good day for food and water.

So the weigh-in Nov. 1st I was 260 and today Nov. 30th I am 258 = 2 pds for my month of November.  I am still on my plateau on this 3rd week but all is good because I still had a successful month with a loss. 

I start my month of December upbeat.  I figure that a weekly loss is nice but a monthly loss is a much greater accomplishment because I have maintained it through the month.  I take pleasure in the small stuff because in the end a lot of small stuff is worth far more and it as time to accumulate to a big suprise in the end. 

I mentioned earlier in my post that I would like to be 255 by the end of December and that is my new goal unless the plateau decides to stick around.  Time will tell but I am just going to keep on doing what I do and the result will be whatever it will be. 

Wishing you all a good day and a wonderful month of December.

Glad u have a lot to be happy about! Small achievements surely add up.

I am at a tough spot right now. If u have read my entries thru the years, u would see that right now is a very challenging time mentally and physically. Many times its a lot of head chatter in my entries, especially now.

SkinInTheGame on 11/30/2014:
You are so right about "winning" the month and looking at it as a success! They will add up over time!

I really have nothing new at this end of the world - all is good and just getting some regular stuff done today.

Hope you all have a great day.

Glad to hear all is well! Your entries are so positive :) I kike how u think about life - one day at a time, and maybe reaching for the apple that you can get to - and not always reaching for the stars which many times are out of reach. Not a way I used to think about life, but a good way especially now.

Good morning

Yesterday my food and water was good.

I am having anotther good day.  The weather is cooperating sun and clouds - as long as the snow stays away.  I can't believe next week we are into December.  I will weigh-in on Sunday for the end of the month in order to see my monthly wieght loss it will not be a big month of loss but at least it will not be a monthly gain.  The plateau I seem to think is holding on.  I have not weighed myself but I do not feel as if I have lost anything.  I have had plateaus last over a month so it will end when it ends. 

Wishing you all a great day.  Our members postings are few in the last little while.

Jezebel on 11/28/2014:
I'm rooting for a loss for you. I go crazy over plateaus. I admire your calm. Have a great day. Enjoy the sunshine.

horn_of_plenty on 11/28/2014:
Hi Fran :) I think with the busy holiday season, members are posting less. Thanks for your support. I have struggled with patience during several periods of my life and u are right this is going to be a big test for me. I know I can pass with flying colors if I make the effort to think more positively that this is not a lifelong chronic situation but a simple bump in the road!

Congrats with having these good days and not gaining! It can be hard to do during this season but can be achieved when you follow thru with your goals.

puddles on 11/28/2014:
The thing about life is that if you try to hard it has a way of showing you differently. Life has its own timetable. One day at a time.

Good morning all

Yesterday was good food on track and water excellent.

Got all my stuff done and that is one less thing to do.  We are having one more nice day no snow a little cool but that is OK.  Any day I don't have to clean off my car is good. 

I was hopping to get to 255 by the end of November and now I am thinking that if I can get to 255 by the end of December and get over this plateau that would also be quite satisfactory.  My journey is a long one and I have given myself till next September to attain my goal which I think is reasonable.  I don't believe in putting the stress and pressure on this journey.  It is a process and it will take whatever it will take as long as I keep doing my part the rest will take care of itself. 

I am in a very relax mode today and expect to have a total vegy day and I dont mean vegetable well partly couch potato day if you want to qualify that as a vegetable.  LOL LOL

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning

Yesterday food and water was good.

I did not go for the oil change yesterday just got a little bit lazy.  I will attempt to do that today.  The weather has been so nice that it is pleasant to go do my errands.  I am also started making my list for the things I need to get done for xmas.  I know I am early but I am a list kind of person.  I have a few things going on and if I make my list I dont forget things.  I also enjoy knocking things off the list when they are done I guest a certain sense of accomplishment. 

I hope that all the people celebrating their Thanksgiving will have a nice and safe drive if you have to be on the roads.

Wishing you all a great day.

The weather has been really warm here too! While it's beautiful and I'm enjoying it I would like mother nature to make up her mind haha. Do I break out the winter coat and turn on the heat or not yet? haha.

Good morning all

Yesterday was good food and water.

This is the second week that I stay the same on the scale and that is ok because for 14 weeks I had losses every week.  I probably have hit a small plateau and I will just ride it out.  I am not going to change my routine because I know that plateaus  happen and when my body is ready to start loosing again it will. 

Today I need to do some banking for my trip this Winter.  I so rarely go the actual bank it seems weird not to be able to do everyting on line.  Then I have to go the post office and mail some stuff off and since I did not go to the grocery store yesterday I will have to swing by that store.  It will be a week that is packed with quite a few to settle before my departure.  I only have one month left before I leave and in that there is Xmas and we all know how fast xmas comes once we hit the month of December.

So I just keep on doing what I am doing as far as my food plan and do what I have to do for my Winter getaway. 

Wishing you all a great day.

I was too busy to think of food and yes I got all my house work done.  Thank God.  I feel much better now.  No great plans for today but I do have to go to the grocery store.  I am out of essential stuff.

Wishing you all a great day.

Hi Fran :) thanks for all your kind words. I have always gone against the grain lol so maybe that's why going with the flow is so hard for me! I wish to exercise again but just can't seem to break the cycle of pain in my legs. They probably just need more rest.
