I guess I should post this because one of my teams is having Halloween games,
and members are going to visit sparkpages.
I do NOT do - nor participate, in any way, with Halloween.
I have personal reasons for this. If you choose to do so, that is fine with me.
I would ask that everyone please excuse me from the game on Rome, or
any other team.
I am not trying to be a party-pooper, this is just my feeling.

David and I are not doing the exact same plan. I am following more of a lower fat,
eat more veggies then fruit plan and he is doing more high protein/lowered carbs.
His weakness is sweets in any way-shape-or form. Whereas I am just if I ever let me
have one bite of something forbidden, I won't quit....but I do know if
I ate as much protein as he I would be GAINING in a big way.........lol
So we compromise. I fix some things for him for his convenience, like if I am in there
anyway, I will fix him a couple of grilled chicken breasts, and I also fix things to be
convenient for him, when we come in with groceries, I wash said chickie and freezer
bag two a bag, and we get the leanest ground angus beef, and I make patties for him
and freeze, and also I fix up bags of the very thin breakfast porkchops(leaner too) and
bag them. I also keep eggs boiled and peeled for him. Yuck...I can't hack eggs.....
If he gets hungry, he cooks. A lot of times he will cook for me too. Last week he whipped
up some (lean only) pork and fresh mushrooms/onions/green peppers and it was divine.
He is an excellent cook. I always do cleanup which is a small price to pay for someone
who is so good at cooking and willing to do so for me...........
We have found a few items he can have, life some low carb/lower fat cupcakes at W/m
where he can have 2 for a hundred calories. It is a continuous struggle to get him to
drink water but he has kicked the diet soda habit.
We are each others' biggest cheerleader tho.....that also helps a lot to have spousal

I am down another pound. This sticking to the plan seems to work.
I didn't want to weigh, but I knew I was losing, and how was I so sure, You ask??
My wedding rings are sliding all over my hand.....My guage for how well I am
doing without weighing .................
What is even funnier????? my doctors' scale weighs us(David & I) at exactly 6 pounds
LESS than our home scale. We go by the home scale tho.....
David has worked so hard on his weight, and believe me, when he gave up carbs he
has checked/double-checked every bite that goes in his mouth, and he is down to
(DRUM ROLL) a svelte 236..........................now if I could just get him to get more
involved on his Spark pages, but alas/alack- - not yet.....I perservere though...
Have a great rest of the week..........
Blessings on ya'll,

Really haven't been doing much....we got thru the fair finally and since then
all it seems like we have done is run from doctor to doctor to doctor. I have
had continuous problems with this minor shoulder surgery, so the dr. has sent
me to Therapy which begins Thursday.....don't know how long, guess they will
see how well I do.
We are not getting our hopes up too high, but DH has been notified his case is
on the judge's desk for SS, so maybe we can get the bikes fixed by the time I
get able to ride..........I can dreammmm....right???????
Other than that, I lost the 6 lbs I gained, and then lost a couple more to top it
off. That made me happy........I am almost to the place I was before the stress
hit when he lost his job etcetcetc......as soon as I get there, then I will really
feel like I have done something and can get back on the road to goal..

I am back from my hospital experience. Tonight my shoulder is
more sore than it was, but I did go to get a haircut today because
I was desperate.
Ya'll wanna know what the first thing the ladies all screamed when
I walked in thru the door????? Oh my Gawd, she wrecked her bike,
say you didn't wreck your bike..........................so I said, No, I did
not wreck my bike.
The first time I walked in there with my face shield helmet and riding
clothes on, I got one of those bugeyed "is this person gonna rob us" looks
from all of them.............LOL
Anyway peeps, thanks for all the prayers, and all the messages of good
will. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
I can't wait til I can get back on my Harley and will be riding without pain.
