  Eleni, You should make a book of your pictures you take.. You never can tell,there are many people who don't see the things we do. Living right here on the Gulf of Mexico. We are seeing beautiful sunsets and sunrises..

    What a pretty sunrise! It's foggy and rainy here. It's better than snow!! The temps are going to drop this evening. It was about 50 degrees today and we're only supposed to reach about 28 degrees tomorrow.

I slept for 2 1/2 hours today. I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. Addison is still sleeping and it's been 4 1/2 hours. I hope she's not getting sick too. Jason and I are both sick.

Happy New Year! This is our year!!!

Nothing new today.Altho fluid isn't going away I did feel some better today. Not enough to go out tho. Bill met his kids for dinner and I stayed home.I just wasn't up to going anywhere.
Roxy has learned how to take all her toys out of her box but not how to put them back.Just like a real kid.
Our cold weather is gone for awhile.Bill took all the plants back outside.It will be nice for awhile.
Nothing on TV tonight. Stay warm folks

Another very boring day.Spent most of day playing games on facebook. Still very tired and retaining a lot of fluid.Hard to breathe.So pretty much doing nothing. I did cook supper but that was easy.Threw everything in iron skillet,covered with foil and into the oven.
Roxy embarrassed Bill again at the new pet store.Not once but twice. Better him than me.We stopped going to the classes.We took her to 3 and had 3 more coming. I was just too tired to go out at 7 at night and Bill didn't want to go alone.
Our biggest problem now is her hair everywhere.I am surprised she isn't bald. The carpet is covered every day. I never had an inside dog so I didn't know they did this. We will wear out the vacuum cleaner soon.
Our cold weather is over for another week. It was 25 last night but was in 50's this afternoon.We will be back in the 70's
My eating and exercise is very bad.
Ok nothing new.

    Look for a Furminator shedding tool - they are AWESOME and work great. My chocolate lab gets a really heavy undercoat and this works WONDERS on him. And did I mention that he doesn't like to be brushed but will stand still for this?!?!? emoticon

    get bill to find a dog book of the kind roxy is at pet store or library and ask pet store if they have anything to help with the hair . maybe it,s the kind she is.but maybe the dog book will tell you why they shed.keep your feet up and relax maybe you can go out tomorrow.take care and big hugs i,m cooking a turkey stew in crock pot today.

  I am sorry to read that you aren't feeling any better. What does your Dr. recommend re: the fluid retention? Until it is relieved, you are doing the right thing by resting.
We have 2 dogs........the Australian Terrier doesn't shed, but the Cairn does. I brush the Cairn daily and this does help. Bill could do this outside and Roxy would love it.
I will pray that you feel better soon. emoticon

    Our dogs shed all over. I'm constantly picking it off Addison and the couch. They make heavy duty vacuums for pet hair but I don't have one so I don't know if they work.

I've been so busy with Addison I haven't been able to play on Facebook. I'm hoping once Jason goes back to work we'll get back on schedule and I'll be able to go back on me beloved Facebook.

I haven't stepped on the scale in a while nor do I want to. I better eat all the goodies in the house so I can start fresh in January. We can do this!!!

    When i retire to AZ, I will get a dog but one that doesn't shed. Poodles, aerdales, lhasas, shi*zus and such.
Wouldn't post tell I changed the t to an asterisk!LOL

    I know what you mean about pet hair. My vacuum takes a beating, however I brush my dog every day and that helps with how much they shed.
Hope the fluid build up clears soon.

I started out good.Didn't last long but at least it was a start.My goal is to do better each day.
I haven't been feeling well because of so much fluid.Took extra diuretics today which I hate doing but it was necessary. Just taking it easy.
It got down to 28 here last night which is very cold for us.Suppose to be cold again tonight and then it will warm back up. Bill brought in some of my plants.
My Brianna is in Indiana and is freezing her bootottie off. But she is seeing plenty of snow. She is already missing her Mom Angel and vice versa.
Well nothing much going on here.Trying to find something on TV to watch but not anything good so far.
Stay warm my friends

    WOW, 28 is cold for Florida! I bet Brianna is freezing her butt off. She's not too far from me. It is warming up slightly. It was 37 degrees this morning when I left the house.

    It constantly amazes me how alike we are, Sister. I started off great yesterday and lasted until 10:30. (in the morning!) It's 11:30 now, so I have done better than yesterday. I've tracked my entire day and now I just have to stick to that plan! I grocery shopped this morning, so I'm counting it as exercise. My knee is very painful and I know it's from too much weight for my poor bones! If I can just get this one day behind me...the others seem to come a little easier. We'll do it, Friend...we've been through worse and survived. It's time to stop destroying ourselves.

    I hope you feel better, too. We miss our regular shows so are catching up on movies. Wish I could tell you a great one, but sadly they have been really dumb.

The worst so far that I NEVER WOULD HAVE RENTED: Twighlight Eclipse. 2 of us managed to fall asleep several times during it, drifting into full fledged snoring, so that was a positive.

Well I gave up trying to catch up.I thank you all for the posts and goodies. You keep me from giving up.The last week or so has not been good. Just too much on top of not feeling well. But thanks to you guys and my wonderful Bill I am slowly coming around.
I can't believe I gained so much weight back. How did it happen?? Just too much stress etc I guess. But I did it and I am paying for it in too many ways. But I did it once so I can do it again.
We are having another round of cold weather.It is suppose to freeze again tonight so my sweetie brought the plants in and covered just a few. It looks like one of my crotons isn't coming back from the last freeze.
I have had a very quiet day.Mostly just been doing nothing.
I will try to not get behind again.Remember I just said try.
I hope you all had a great weekend.You are the best

    I believe this will be a new beginning for many of us Eleni. I pray that the stressors of the kids and grandkids will not make us tempted to turn to food for comfort. We can do nothing for them and we are not the cause of their trials. There is a consequence for every action in life whether good or bad. They will not learn if we bail them out. They have to do it on their own no matter how much it hurts for us to watch. I love you Eleni. I pray for a good year for you and Bill and Roxy too. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Christmas is always a stressful time at our house. But...we can all get through it!
Take care of your self...pull up and start over. I think we can all relate to that. I look forward to reading your blogs, but when you don't feel like it...don't do it...we will all understand. That is what friends do!

    No worries! I'm starting over again too. Gained back much of what I'd lost - but still weigh less than last year .... and that's what it's all about. All the good eating and all the exercise helps us even if we can't see it. So we have to remember to never give up.
I think the holidays and the days leading into them are always more stressful and hectic - so it is pretty normal to get off track. But thank goodness for the new year and the new start. Here we go again. We can do it! Keep making yourself a priority. Our health is everything! emoticon

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
I'm very behind in using Spark so I will catch up now that Christmas is over. I had a very nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day being with family. It looks from you pictures that you did the same. It has been cold here too, we even got alittle snow on Christmas. I have been bad food wise too but I don't think too bad of a gain. I'll start back on diet this week. I'm closing for now and will send you an email, talk to you soon,
