                     Hey Family!

          I'm late, but I'm straight!!!!

Check your replies,,,I did get around to replying to every one's comments. I had a ball, chatting with you. Sorry I was late. Wanted to chat with ya earlier, but oh well. Anyway check me out, when you can.

OK......Today was a little trying for me, but I made it through anyway.  Daughter took me out to eat. Good old mother daughter bonding time. All I can say is, I stuck to meat veges, a little carbs, and my favorite sugar-free cookies.

Guys,,,I didn't go overboard, like I could have, because I kept thinking of things like, what would my sis KathyBlue think,,if I just had a piece of this, or what would V. Just4today, Moogy, Maria, Breakaway, Teensybikini, Umpqua,  think if I had to post some no no's today?  So believe it or not, you sweeties are with me, even when I'm not at the computer. That's a good thing.

So thanks for helping me ladies.  You guy's actually went to lunch, with me. LOL real LOUD. But seriously, don't you all think of each other too?  I know I'm not a lone.  Am I ?  

Well got to run, Talk with you later. My Alfred Hitchcock DVD,s are waiting for me. I know, up late again,,,but I'll sleep in 2mrrw morning. I'm retired and I got it like that.

                         Have a good Night.

Good for you for not overdoing it while out. That's so sweet that you "take us with you"! I, too, often think of others on this site through out the day and actually worry if I don't see a post from someone in awhile. It's reallyl pretty amazing how these connections are made, isn't it? Hope your day is a good one! :)

shawnee on 09/23/2010:
Awesome them are my worsts time out to eat and gabbin good for you YOU should be proud of yourself!!

moogy on 09/23/2010:
Yes, Nita we are always with you, like chubby angels sitting on your shoulders whispering in your ear "You can do it Nita", you did good today and I hope that you have another good day tomorrow.

Umpqua on 09/23/2010:
Aw, it's nice to know you are thinking of us! I love Hitchcock, which ones did you watch? I need to re-watch Rear Window soon. And the veggie burgers are Boca Burgers - in the frozen aisle of the grocery store. Only 70 calories each and really tasty. Hope you have a great one!

V on 09/23/2010:
So proud of you NITA :) i am happy to assist! Have a good one :)

Thanks for your support on my page. I definitely think I take all of you DD girls with me when I'm out and about. You definitely displayed some awesome restaurant healthy eating skills. Thats great! you are 1/3 of the way to your goal. That's awesome. Keep it up! Have a great day!

KathyBlue on 09/23/2010:
Yeah, definitely we are enough sweeties so you don't have to get additional sweeties, they cause you harm while us, sweeter sweeties, don't! :-))))))))) I'm already so much better because of you, my dear lovely friends! We are true family :)

hollybelle on 09/23/2010:
Great job at lunch with duaghter! Doesn't it feel good? I do hate to post things I eat on here sometimes, keeps me straight much of the time, it's true. Treats can be OK but once or twice a week is enough! You did wonderfully well, though.

breakaway on 09/23/2010:
OH my gosh NO not alone. I ALWAYS think of your guys and it helps SO much :D I know for a fact I would not be doing as well without having to come here and tell everyone what I did or didn't do for the day. You did GREAT girl! So proud of you! And thank you for always leaving a comment on my page as well :D Your a great inspiration for me...I think I told you that before but didn't want you to forget that :D THANKS!

It looks like you had a good day Nita. I am glad you were able to get moving a little, slowly, slowly is the best for us older girls!! I hope you have a great day tomorrow as well.

KathyBlue on 09/21/2010:
I'm proud of you, Sis, a great menu you had!!! :)

just42day on 09/21/2010:
Sounds like you had a great day! Good for you. Keep going sweetie! :)

V on 09/21/2010:
You have no idea how simpler life is when you prepare your foods in advance! At first it seems a little tedious when weighing bagging and writing the amounts on the bag BUT it becomes second nature

Umpqua on 09/21/2010:
Your foods look great! Let me know if you want any recipes for anything and I'd be happy to pass them along.

Maria7 on 09/21/2010:
Your foods look real good. Are you in Arizona?

breakaway on 09/21/2010:
Wow is that really all you ate all day? If I had only eaten that I would feel so hungry. It's great to see you listing all your foods :D Your doing great! Have a wonderful day today...when do you weigh in? On what days?

Just, wanted to peek in and say hello. I hope every one's week will be full of great choices and wise decisions. I plan to give it my all this week,  I will be posting my foods and trying to get in some kind of physical activity this week. I'll do my best to eat, no later than 9:00 P.M. and get as much water in per day, as I possibly can. 

Each Monday,  I thought it would be a great idea to forecast what I wish to accomplish for my new week ahead.  So I'm putting these positive vibes, out in the atmosphere with the confidence that  "What the mind conceives",,,,,the body will achieve.

            I also wish the same for each of you:

Have a wonderful Monday, and I'll be back later on, to post my foods.

                                      Peace & Love 2 Ya

Welcome to the new week Nita. I hope that it is a successful, healthy and happy week for you. It is Monday evening here in Sydney so I will come back and catch up with your day and your menu in the morning. I am sure you will have a good day because you are a good woman.:)

KathyBlue on 09/20/2010:
Sis, you could do the meatless Mondays as well :) It's a wonderful initiative from our fellow ladies, it forces you to eat more veggies (I guess!). A big kiss and hugs to my lovely sissss :)

just42day on 09/20/2010:
Good hearing from you! Sounds like you have great motivation to propel you succesfully through the week! Wishing you success and happiness for the week (and then some!) :)

KathyBlue on 09/20/2010:
Meatless Wednesday? Sounds great :) Meanwhile you could focus on grilled, white meats instead of fried, deep fried red meats (we suppose to eat read meat only once a week, did you know that? The food pyramid says so!), and avoid chips and white rice... I love a slice of grilled chicken breast in the company of loooots of cooked veggies! :)

Umpqua on 09/20/2010:
Great plan, I hope you have a wonderful week!

V on 09/20/2010:
Nita have I told you lately how proud I am of you???? Well one cannot hear it enough so YAY to you my friend!!!!!!!!!! Keep your eye on the prize and your motivation level right there :)

Maria7 on 09/20/2010:
Hope ya have a nice day, Nita! Good plan to include foods and exercise in entries. It does help. Keep up the good work! :-)

Nita I have a feeling it's going to be a great day for you! You sound so inspiring today.

biscottibody59 on 09/20/2010:
Hope you have a lovely week!

You will probably feel much better with a little activity, just don't overdo it and believe that it's good for you. Sometimes we have to trick ourselves for awhile with some of this stuff!

             Today was wonderful!

You know how I hate to post my foods,,,I'll try it for a while,,,I think it will help to keep me grounded.  So here is what I ate today.

2 sl wheat bread -   1 sl lean of ham -  a few plums -  water but not enough -  turnip greens -  1 piece of steak -  few cups of popcorn  - crystal lite drink.  I ate too late,,,but 2mrrw I'll do better,,.

2mrrw, I'll try to cut off  eating  at 8 or 9.   I stay up late, so there's  no real reason to go to bed early-  can't sleep anyway ,,,,kids are grown & gone, no hubby   to nag me, ( for me, thats a good thing)    Just lots of TV and my DD postings.  I think I'll be fine. 

                                                    Talk To Ya later

My comment about simple pleasures seems to have dissapeared, but at least I know you read it before that happened. I did smile at the thought of you sneaking away with some roses from a public garden!!!! I am sure that you wouldn't do that, would you????? LOL Have a great day my friend. I think of you often, you and all your grandbabies.

moogy on 09/17/2010:
You must of been typing as I was posting. I like to see you write down what you are eating. It helps me stay honest with myself and accountable to my team mates. V is my wingwoman and always keeps an eagle eye on what I am eating. Maybe writing down what you are eating and drinking will help improve the good things and minimise the bad. I keep a little book near me that I write in as well, it contains a plan for the next few days, my weight, recipes I might try etc. But I am a little obsessive when I am dieting.:)

panda22 on 09/17/2010:
Great variety of foods yesterday =) Keep it up and have a wonderful Friday!!

tangalyn on 09/17/2010:
sounds like u had a good eating day... hope today goes as good :)

V on 09/17/2010:
:) Nita i am glad you are writing it down as tedious as it is but very effective :) I never posted foods til Moogy called me out one day and now it is second nature. It really does hold me accountable and I can always go back to it when I have bigger or smaller losses from week to week. Have a good day Nita :)

breakaway on 09/17/2010:
I also hate writing what I eat...just takes to much thinking but moogy is so right it helps us stay honest. I know it's true for me! AND it helps me to NOT over eat because I have to come here and share what I did and I refuse to fail ;) So you did good! Congrats!

Maria7 on 09/17/2010:
It is extra work writing it down but I think it helps. Congrats on doing real well! :-D

Hmm. Wash your car in exchange for you cleaning my house? You obviously haven't seen my house or you wouldn't be suggesting such a simple task...... :)

KathyBlue on 09/16/2010:
Sis, I just read this, and I want to share w/ you all:

I am always amazed by the human spirit that says "I won't give in. I will fight and I will lead as productive a life as possible in the time that I have to live." I do not know why some continue to embrace the will to live. For those who give up, life is over and they are waiting to die. For those who choose to fight, life can continue to have many rewards. These are people who give real meaning to what it is to be happy and productive and these are the people who should be an inspiration to all of us.

Housework in general and cleaning in particular are the banes of my existence:-) I clean as I go along, generally, but it doesn't last forever!

I've had a good day today, not too many senior moments   as the days before. I'm staying focused and loving it.

Well, not too much chit chat tonight, I watched a Denzel Washington movie tonight, so I'm going to hurry to bed, maybe I'll get lucky, and dream about him. You think?  Ha Ha Ha

How about your doctor, Sis? Have you been there lately? Does he give you an extra boost, motivation there? Wish I would be your neighbor, you would have me at the door everyday, giving you a motivation until you get tired of me, but even then I would stay knocking at your door :)))

                            Still Standing

Hi guys, I may be leaning or bending, but I'm still managing to stand, and as long as I can stand, I have a chance.  I'm not going away, I'll be here, still fighting for my health.

Thanks to all of my true DD's who never gave up on me. I appreciate your support. Some people love kicking it with a winner, but as soon as they see a slight bit of failure, they are quick to vanish. I truly appreciate the special group of people who realize that none of us are perfect,  and from time to time we all are capable of our slips and falls along the way.

The love and support is really needed  more than ever, when one of us have stumbled.  That's the time when a kind word, or an encouraging comment, means the most and has it's greatest effect on  those of us who have temporarily lost their way.  

So thanks once again, to everyone,,,,you know who you are. It's you, who gives hope to hurting folks like me. Your kindness gives us the courage  to come to this site and share our pains    as well as our victories. Hearing you say " you can do it Nita"  keep posting, even though I may have had tears in my eyes even though I may be feeling so alone and   broken hearted,,,,,My friends, it is YOU  that strengthens me, hearing you say:   "Keep on, keep on Nita, keep posting, Don't stop"  I thank you family, because of you I sit here, right now, baring my soul and feeling so much better about my future.

Sis, Kathy, you mean so much to me.You've never given up on me. Your success, tells me that I can, we all can, and we surely WILL.

I got knocked down, but I won't stay down!!!  I'm standing up again, and ready to go how ever many rounds it takes,, to get on the right track again.

                          Love Ya All

This was a real heartfelt entry today! It made me sad but yet it made me think that maybe I can do this because there are others out there like me :D I know how you feel. It's the same here. I'm trying to do this in Secret (with the exception of DD) because I'm afraid I will fail and my family and friends will say "OH NOT AGAIN"...I mean, they never do but I'm sure you know what I mean. And I think in the back of my mind there are other reasons but that is the main one. I just don't want to look like a failure again. You CAN do this. I now you can. I will be one of your biggest fans and cheer you on to the end :D Don't give up and I have learned that even if you ARE failing to keep posting here. My last few days have not been good but this time I didn't vanish like before. AND it made me SO much happier to be here and I'm not giving up. Hang in there :D

I'm so glad you, sweet ladies, understand that there are NO MAYBEs, NO HESITATION, NO UNCERTAINTIES... we WILL make it, no matter WHEN. It depends on US and we are strong women who know what's good for ourselves, our bodies and our souls!
