Weigh In Blues

Friday, August 24, 2012



Yesterday was not a good weigh in day for me---my weight was up 2 1/2 pounds. My feet were quite swollen again.

Today is supposed to get into the low to mid 90s so I imagine they will be swollen again. I am not wearing my tie shoes as much as I do in cooler weather to keep the pressure on my feet. I may not be going down in pounds but either the dryer is stretching my clothes or I am losing inches. I haven't measured in quite a while and won't be able to until I get home because i didn't put a tape measure in the 5th wheel.

After TOPS, I did some shopping and stopped at a yard sale where I got 3 real nice sweatshirts for $1 each.

Even with the swelling, I did accomplish some things yesterday. After TOPS I stripped and remade the bed did up all my dishes from the past 3 days (just had a few as I eat in with Sue and Dale) and straightened up in here. This morning, I am defrosting the frig (it is nearly done now). Dale put more sealer on the roof and fixed my water leak so now I can leave the water on without it dripping constantly. He also fixed the bottom of the door where i had started to separate. Dale is my brother.

Goodness August is nearly over. Just think if we strived for one pound a week loss, we all would be down 16 pounds by Christmas-----wouldn't that be something to brag about?

Blessings.......Elsie

    I really like your idea of a pound a week, down 16 by Christmas. That is very doable, isn't it?

I am so enjoying reading about your visits during your vacation.

    Sorry for the gain, but with swollen feet, it is only to be expected and will go back down when they do. Sounds like you're enjoying your trip. emoticon

    I was up a couple pounds today too. But based on my eating the last week or two it really wasn't a shocker. But I journaled about it so I could learn some lessons from it and move on. So that is my current plan. Sounds like you are keeping a positive attitude to and moving forward. Way to go! Make it a great day!

An Exciting Day

Sunday, August 19, 2012

We sure are having a very beautiful fall-like day this Lord's day.

The reason I am so excited is that for the first time since being up here I am able to get on line from my 5th wheel. I am having fun doing lots of posting and catching up.

Yesterday afternoon, we went to a revival/concert with lots of fabulous music and a good message. Afterwards, we went to a small cafe that had live country music. Lots of good fellowship , music, and food.

More visiting tomorrow then to a casino on Tuesday to celebrate my cousin's birthday.

Blessings,
Elsie

Hello from Michigan

Thursday, August 16, 2012



These are my 2great grandbabies.

I have been kept very busy visiting family here. So far I have seen one of my sisters, my brother (of course since that is where I have my 5th wheel parked), hubby's brother and sister and a nephew.

Next week, I am visiting another sister whose husband isn't doing well, go to a casino with my cousin and a sister, and visit the church we belonged to when we lived up here. After church, I may visit with my grands again.

Lots of visits and lots of food too........not always good.......lol

Take care and stay on track even if I don't..hehehe

Elsie

    So glad you are having such a good time. Watch the food, but don't worry about it. Sounds like you are doing a lot of running around and burning up lots of calories. Your grands are SO cute! Keep having fun and thanks for telling us about it.

Having Fun In Michigan

Monday, July 30, 2012



I arrived at my sister's about 10:30 Tuesday morning. God blessed me with a very smooth trip. I stayed the night by Fort Wayne, Indiana.

I missed a turn outside of Saint Louis so took a different route which seemed to be quicker and with almost no truck traffic. God lead me all the way plus gave me people who gave me fantastic directions to get me back on my right route.

Since being at my brother's, I have attended a concert and got in free as well as got a free root beer float. Then I attended my sister in law's family reunion. After the reunion, I went to my ex son in law's house and got to see both of my great grand babies and their parents. While there, I got to participate in their birthday gathering. It was for my ex son in law's brother.

As you can see, I have been well cared for.

Take care and a big thanks to all who sent prayers for my safe and smooth trip...I will post when I have internet access..

Elsie

Going to Michigan

Friday, July 20, 2012



I have most of my things packed and ready to load into the car Sunday afternoon so I can pull out Monday morning.

All my medicine has arrived so I am all set. Also I have all of DJ's medicines.

New back brakes on the car, oil change has been done, burnt out headlight (I didn't know it was out) replaced, and the car is full of gas.

Laundry will get done tomorrow. Sunday after church, I will load the car.

All that is left is to send an email to my sister which I will do in a few minutes.
