It is 7:52 AM here. What’s your time?


Donkey on 09/29/2020:
Wow, you are doing great! Isn't it nice to see quantitative results? YEAH!!!

Yep! Hallelujah!


bearcountrygg on 09/29/2020:
Good Morning.....Good job with the scales!!!

Jacky82020 on 09/29/2020:
Thanks. I do get so hungry though


grannyannie on 09/29/2020:
I'm 5 hours ahead of you. I get up at 6am so when it's still 1am for you (eastern US, right?)

Jacky82020 on 09/29/2020:
Sounds right! Would that be the same for Ireland? I have a Twitter buddy from there.


grannyannie on 09/29/2020:
Good on your weigh in!


grannyannie on 09/29/2020:
Yes, I am the same time zone as Ireland.


Horn_of_plenty on 09/29/2020:
fabulous work, Jacky!!

Jacky82020 on 09/29/2020:
Thanks, HoP. You would not believe how hungry I am!

Weight: 127.6

 Weight stable at 127.6.  Hoping to hit 126 point something by Friday. & to be able to set new goal of 120 shortly thereafter.  Looked at BMI calculators yesterday.  Surprised to see normal weight for my height from 105 to 130.  Stopped plugging in numbers there, so actual range wider.

Progress as of today: 6.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

Donkey on 09/28/2020:
Good morning! Let's see what this new week brings you!

Jacky82020 on 09/28/2020:
Thanks! Fingers crossed!


bearcountrygg on 09/28/2020:
Good Morning!!!


grannyannie on 09/28/2020:
Good morning! What is your ultimate goal weight?

Jacky82020 on 09/28/2020:
115. Used to weigh 105 to 110. Then maybe 112-115. Then up to a max of 140. Been in the low 130s for years. Will never see a 130 again!


Horn_of_plenty on 09/28/2020:
You are doing GREAT! keep on :)

Annie, I was going to show you a pic from the newspaper today, but it's on the other iPad.   it's about people mining gold in Scotland, near Wanlockhead.   looked like the old 49er days in California! 
 

 

 My new iPad is finally back from the Idaho repair shop. What an ordeal!   Seems as good as new, still highly pissed I had to pay $115 to fix a 3 month old device.

 

Progress as of today: 6.4 lbs lost so far, only 2.6 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 09/27/2020:
Good Morning. Glad you got your IPad back!

Jacky82020 on 09/27/2020:
Yay! I was using the old one, but the new one is better.


grannyannie on 09/27/2020:
How annoying! You shouldn't have had to pay. Glad you got it back though.

I bought a laptop in March and had to send it back to Amazon after 3 months and got a refund and bought another.

Jacky82020 on 09/27/2020:
The tip of the charging cord broke off inside the charging port. Freak accident. iPad warranty is for factory defects only. They and Best Buy said suck it up and buy a new one, Up theirs!

I did get a 10 inch Amazon Fire tablet which I hated. Couldn’t use my apps, crappy on email etc. It’s good for reading, certain games, & video. Amazon issued a prepaid return label and refunded my money when I dropped it off at UPS.


grannyannie on 09/27/2020:
I don't use any Apple products. My phone is Samsung as is my 'fitbit'. My laptop is a Google Chromebook made by Asus.

Jacky82020 on 09/27/2020:
The iPad is a nifty little device, does everything my laptop can, not sure I’d buy another Apple product through.


grannyannie on 09/27/2020:
My sister loves her ipad that he kids gave her.


Donkey on 09/27/2020:
We're anti-Apple here at my house. It's my husband's thing - he's our tech decision maker. Oh, except Daughter has rebelled and has an IPhone, Ipad, and Apple Watch. I guess if that's the extent of her rebellious years, then I'm OK with that.


grannyannie on 09/27/2020:
I looked up that gold mining place. South of me about 2 hours. Maybe I should check it out?! :D

Jacky82020 on 09/27/2020:
Go for it , girl! They said the gold is selling for $2000 an ounce.


grannyannie on 09/27/2020:
Wow!


Horn_of_plenty on 09/27/2020:
seems $100 is the "going price" for many elec equipment fixes. i paid around that for my laptop screen fix.

Jacky82020 on 09/27/2020:
Depends. The other big mail-in iPad repair was in California. I discovered them on a YouTube vid. They were replacing the charging port like I needed done. They quoted $169. Nice that the Idaho place paid shipping.

Homemade pickles ok.   Used malt vinegar instead of apple & added ground red pepper. Bought more cucumbers.   the kind I got cost 62 cents each. The English ones were like a $1.58 each.   They looked the same.  Sliced cucumbers and used same liquid for second batch.

 

 Went off strick low cal a bit yesterday.   just got too hungry!   had maybe 1200 instead of 750 or whatever

I had a hungry day too.....BUT...today will be better!

Jacky82020 on 09/26/2020:
Yeah, some days are worse than others!


innerpeace on 09/26/2020:
I turned down ice cream last night! Blood sugar was high anyway - I should have just ate the ice cream I wouldn't be so mad!

Jacky82020 on 09/26/2020:

Amen, girl!


Horn_of_plenty on 09/26/2020:
yes, agreed, sometimes the hunger is just UNREAL!


bearcountrygg on 09/26/2020:
Sometimes I just have to give into it to be able to get past it...I mean...I'm not trying to be unhappy...sometimes you just have to choose happy!


grannyannie on 09/26/2020:
Yea, if you are too hungry all the time you've got to eat more. 1200 calories is good.


Horn_of_plenty on 09/26/2020:
homemade pickles sounds good...i have yet to create a perfect homemade pickle...i should try ;)

Jacky82020 on 09/26/2020:
Mine are far from perfect. I may be tasting the malt vinegar and spices more than the cucumber. But crunchy, sodium free and hot and sour spices.

recipe says to refrigerate 3 days. added some red pepper. 400 Cals so far. egg McMuffin, chicken bouillon & some protein drink.

 

tried one,  pretty bland.   Will look at some other recipes.   I picked the easiest.

 

 Brewing homemade pickles!   used apple vinegar, dill (dry spice) & garlic.  Halved and shoved into the fridge.  Bit into one.  Had no idea they were so crunchy.  Never liked them.   a few leftover, will do hamburger chip slices.

grannyannie on 09/25/2020:
Never tried making pickles.

Jacky82020 on 09/25/2020:
Shocked by the sodium levels, mine will be salt free. And hopefully taste ok!


legcramps on 09/25/2020:
Yum!


bearcountrygg on 09/25/2020:
Not a sour food fan but those sound good!

Jacky82020 on 09/25/2020:
Can’t wait to try one!


Horn_of_plenty on 09/25/2020:
let us know about the pickles!!!!!! i love crunchy recently pickled pickles! yum.

Looks like you can't copy and paste from outside sources in here.   Had blurb from CDC that says 1-2 pds weight loss weekly is considered healthy.  Many sources saying the same thing.   the 2 pds must involve bigger ppl than me.   Impossible in  my case, but sure hope I can sustain the 1.

 

 

200 cal from bran cereal today.   would have preferred tuna, but haven't had a dump since Sunday when I took the laxative.   so back to a good 30 g fiber per day.

 

 Need to exercise more today.   Pulled something in the back yesterday lifting a very heavy antique oak table.  Better today. The great kitchen remodeling continues!

Donkey on 09/24/2020:
Oh I hate a strained muscle! D So inconvenient! I hope you can work it out.

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
It’s better now. I am able to use the recumbent bike.


bearcountrygg on 09/24/2020:
Hope it goes better today for you Jacky.

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
Thanks, Bear!


grannyannie on 09/24/2020:
Ouch. Oak furniture is heavy. Take it easy. Lots of gentle stretching.

We gutted and redid our kitchen 10 years ago. What a difference it made.

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
Very heavy antique table! Was really into Victorian furniture when I had a wonderful 1870 house. Went to all kinds of auctions. Doing kitchen and adjoining sunroom here in 1950s style. Rest of house (1964 brick) remains Victorian Gothic.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/24/2020:
yes, it's def easier for big people to lose more! because in order to be that big...it means they eat BIG! so when they reduce calories, the reduction is greater to their huge calorie typical day than your moderate reduction.

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
Yep, used to watch My 600 Pound Life. Damn , those ppl melted away. Extreme example, I know, but applies to others A 300 Lb. lady across the street from me once had gastric bypass and she melted too. Her insurance paid. She said cheaper than fixing her knees etc.

How does it taste?

I didn't realize you were trying to post this photo in on your other post.

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
It was not. It’s a later in the day new post. My edits here often fail. That and the yellow screen r frustrating.

It tastes marvelous! No sodium and 10 Cals. I do add malt vinegar and hot sauce. Makes it similar to Chinese hot & sour soup.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Ok, this worked. Bummer ion the others!


grannyannie on 09/23/2020:
Are you doing it on a phone? I know you can't load a photo that is too big, can't remember what size.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
No, I always use the iPad. I had a big font and longer than usual post, plus the pic you see. Tried changing font, no luck. Tried no pic. Could not load any which way, so did a new short post, and the gif separately


bearcountrygg on 09/23/2020:
I've always figured that the yellow screen had something to do with the server not working...once I remember all we got for several days was the yellow screen...but DD eventually came back.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Wow! The webmaster did say when DD goes, it’s gone. Looking to me this was originally developed with intentions to profit through advertising. Does anyone here remember any ads?


Donkey on 09/23/2020:
Yes, I do recall the ads. We all complained. It didn't last long.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Big platforms like twitter and Facebook, etc, wouldn’t exist without ads. You learn to totally ignore them.


Horn_of_plenty on 09/23/2020:
YES! the dreaded yellow screen with tons of code on it! ahhhhhh!


Horn_of_plenty on 09/23/2020:
it's amazing this site is so fundamentally for conversation and support of one another!

Too large that is


grannyannie on 09/23/2020:
You can make them smaller after you load them. This one is fine. :)


bearcountrygg on 09/23/2020:
When I add a photo...I delete the measurement that is automatic...and change the top line to 300 ( the bottom line adjusts automatically to that.)...but you could choose a different number....I just stick to 300.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
I will try that. Usually zero comes up, so I have to select size. But sometimes a default size does pop up.


Donkey on 09/23/2020:
This looks fine to me - appropriate size.

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Good, but it was annoying this morning losing my long post. Could not upload it no matter what I tried. Mostly about how well Herb Ox salt free bullion is working for me. The boxed kind, salt free they say, has 50 mg. This granulated has zero. Both have 10 Cals. Add malt vinegar and hot sauce. Added 6 jars to my running Walmart list.


grannyannie on 09/23/2020:
I do my photos with 600 as the highest number.


Horn_of_plenty on 09/23/2020:
well, usually i don't find mice to be cute, but yours is very!

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Not even Mickey?


Horn_of_plenty on 09/23/2020:
maybe instead of sampling, add it to your meal...with a big salad and some of your tasty meatloaf!!! maybe a few chips on the side...the balanced meal will make you feel satisfied if you keep eating balanced :)

jacky82020 on 09/23/2020:
Not there yet. I am going for a one lb weight loss per week and need to keep calories down. Lost over 6 since 8/20 and am very motivated to keep going. Had can of albacore for lunch. 110 Cals and lots of protein.


Donkey on 09/23/2020:
Picking away at extra bits is a huge problem with me, too!

Jacky82020 on 09/24/2020:
ikr? Have to cook for the husband. He works all day. And the aging dog is getting fussy.
