Jumping up and down could be your exercise.

grannyannie on 04/30/2015:
Naw, I think I did enough yesterday to just do cleaning today. :)


Umpqua on 04/30/2015:
LOL @ the fluid comment. You're doing great, 3 cheers for Annie!

grannyannie on 04/30/2015:
LOL. Thanks.


Umpqua on 04/30/2015:
You know I just realized I had a reading comprehension fail here - I wasn't laughing about fluid retention, I swear, I have my own fluxes based on that :P Anyway, I'm still applauding your loss!

grannyannie on 04/30/2015:
LOL. Yea, we all have that sneaky fluid messing up the scale!


liza36 on 04/30/2015:

Haven't been posting as we've had lots of houseguests.  No, I haven't behaved as planned. But last guest leaves tomorrow morning so it's back on track for me!  I will weigh myself in the morning to assess the damage. 

Hope everybody is doing well and having a healthy Sunday.  

Progress as of today: 24 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Morning, Annie.

It is hard when we have guest and especially if they are staying with you. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 04/26/2015:
Yes, and they want meat so of course we do BBQ's and desserts and beer and wine.


Umpqua on 04/27/2015:
Entertaining is always a challenge but I know you'll get right back on track!

puddles on 04/20/2015:
Take care of that shoulder Annie and have a great day.

grannyannie on 04/20/2015:
Thanks, will do.


Umpqua on 04/20/2015:
That venison burger you had for your anniversary sounds awesome. I hope you have a good one and take it easy on your shoulder!

grannyannie on 04/20/2015:
It was delicious and so were the chips. I'll be careful as I don't want to hurt my shoulder more.


biscottibody59 on 04/20/2015:
Take good care of your shoulder. Sounds like the best thing (really the only thing) to shut down any activity with it. That strategy usually works for me. (Haven't done enough in a month of Sundays to test many body parts however:-)

Enjoy your week!
