I have spent the last 2 days cleaning at my friend Barb's house. She is hoping to be released to come home in October so we are trying to get her house and studio clean and ready for her. What a job as she was flown to Denver in February so the dust has piled up.

Thanks for asking about my sister as well. She is recovering nicely while doing PT 2 to 3 times per week.

As for the quilt I finished the last of 90 blocks last night and now I can begin sewing the sashings to the blocks and putting it all together. I will post a picture soon.

Line dancing sounds like so much fun.

Sorry for those who have been feeling ill. Hope you are better soon.

Prayers continuing for Carlin. Mary, so glad you were there for him.

It is cold and dreary here and DH has gone adventuring for the weekend. I will enjoy the quiet time alone.

Good Morning '48ers,

Quick check-in. Weight was 235.4#'s - up less than a pound, but still UP! Not happy with that. You're right Margaret, I need to get it moving more.

Well, off to take care of pots left from DW cooking last night. I do work up a sweat doing that, does it count?

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Are you having a great Friday - your choice to make it the best ever

Cloudy and cool out but I am still going to have a good day

For some reason at about 1 am I decided to be sick to stomach - brought up all my supper which wasn't much due to sore mouth. So am feeling somewhat tired this morning. Also looking forward next week to see dentist for a cleaning of the teeth and to see what is wrong with the tooth.

Our dear male dog (12 years old) got out of the yard this morning and that is not nice.. Though he is 'fixed' he likes to visit other homes and won't come when called - when we sees us coming for him to move further away- but eventually after about 20 minutes we convince him to come home - does not do much for my husbands smile to have this happen first thing in the morning when he is on his way out to have coffee with his buddies.

Tomorrow is the start of our hockey season = hubby is excited about it = and I am too as it means a few evenings just me and daughter. Hope our team does good this year

Well, time to go and get breakfast on = and then to start my day with a few chores

Be blessed

Good morning everyone it's emoticon Friday. I stayed the same at 232. Hope everyone has a great weigh in.

Agnes, I think you'll love the line dancing. It's so much fun and you burn off all those calories at the same time. My friend and I went to a course and had a ball I'm just sorry it's not a weekly thing. At first we were all laughing about making mistakes but then we got the hang of it and really got going. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Mary, I hope you had a good night sleep and are more rested up.

Dwayne, I hope that honey do list got you to break into a sweat. Man you have got to get moving again. I think you should watch that football game standing up and marching in place that should get the calories going. LOL

Bernie, how are you doing on your bear paw quilt?

Marilyn, glad to hear your skies are clearer and even if it's a little chilly get out there and get some air.

Hope you all have a great weigh in.

Hugs Margaret

Good morning All,

I woke up ~ 4 am and just couldn't get back to sleep. Even the dog groaned when she saw me get up. Still, it's nice to have this quiet time in the morning. Today I'm going to go to the gym. It's been so long, but I do want to get back into it. I also signed up for an adult ed course---line dancing---one night a week. I've never done that, but I do like music and it will be fun to try something new.

A dear friend is not well. She is the primary caretaker for 4 young grandchildren. She has two daughters who have had a difficult time being good parents, and rely on my friend for way too much. I will see my friend today and see if I can help in any way. Perhaps food shopping or laundry. It's hard to know how to help. Part of me wants to shake some sense into her daughters, but it is not my place to do that.

Yes, September is flying by. Wow.

Marilyn, I love your pictures with the sayings. I look forward to seeing them every day.

Mary, hope you got that sleep that you so dearly need.

Margaret, take care of that arm. Crocheting is something that I'd like to learn. I know how to knit, but crocheting is a mystery to me.

Dwayne, I agree. I hate to wait for doctors, and have changed doctors who are chronically behind schedule. The one I have now is good on that end. When he's running late his staff let us know, and usually let us know why, e.g. that there was an emergency that he needed to tend to.

Oh, I almost forgot. Weight is 146.0 today. So, going in the right direction.

Have a good one,
Agnes

Almost midnight...where does the time go? I'd better get to bed cause weigh-in reports are due in the morning!

Agnes, sure hope your friends in P.R. are ok. What a mess they say it is. We are also concerned about friends in D.R. that we got to know last October. I believe they were getting it this afternoon.

Margaret, hope that swollen arm is better tomorrow. Pace yourself and do less crocheting a day until you gradually can increase the time may help prevent that happening.

Marilyn, I do the same oils! Love my Y.L. oils and defuse often. Hope your DH gets well soon.

Dwayne, you made me emoticon but sorry you & your DW are having to spend so long waiting for Dr visits. I think charging would help decrease the wait but I don't think the Dr would agree. lol

Good Afternoon '48ers,

Realized last night as I was going to bed I had not posted and with the fear of waking up to "M & M" on my porch, I thought I'd better post today.

DW's appt. with the Dr. for the results of her back MRI showed NOTHING WRONG! Plus, being there for 2+ hours never puts her in a good mood. She wants to start billing the Dr.s' for making us wait. Wow, if we could do that we'd either be rich, get into the Dr. right away OR be looking for a new Dr. every time we had an appt....LOL! So now, next week we go see the family Dr. for the results of her last MRI. So more to follow.

Marilyn,hope you are having a Blessed day and making all your goals come true. Hope your DH is doing better. I know when I get sick I'm a LOUSY PATIENT and I just want to be left alone.

Mary, glad to hear the "lil' guy's" surgery went well. Hope you have a safe trip home. Know he's in my prayers, along with you and all the other great '48ers out there.

Agnes, wish your DH a 'Happy Birthday' for me. I know what he means. I try to sneak past my birthdays, but God's watching, so not much chance of that...just thinking 'where do all the years go?'...Glad to hear you're getting some rest. It's nice to have friends visit, but now back to 'normal'; whatever that might be.

Well, I'm off, got to get a little 'home workout' in and then a little 'Honey-Do' and then football tonight. Take care everyone...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Gosh we are on the downside of September already - time goes by so fast when we get old

We are finally having blue skies but it has turned cold so we cant sit outside - cant win - we haven't sat outside all summer due to smoke and not that it is clear skies it is to cold to sit outside - praying that the winter won't be to harsh

Scale is looking good, am going to get in 10 minutes on the treadmill

Hubby just came out to help me with my socks = doesn't look well = says his stomach is bothering him and that he is tired = think he might be coming down with something and as he rarely gets sick not nice. So have just put on the diffuser with 3 different oils to help and had him put some 'thieves' on this feet which will help whatever is making him feel sick go away. Love my oils - we have been so much healthier re flus and cold in the last year since using them.

Going through my cookbooks today - especially the new one I just got - to look for 2 different meals for the coming week = we are trying to get new recipes to help change up our meals but still be healthy

Be blessed

Good morning everyone.

Agnes, I'm not surprised that you slept after your guests left. I've found lately that everything out of the norm that we do has us trying to get caught up on our sleep. I envy the people that can sleep in . LOL I'm still trying to get over all that driving we did. It sure ware the body out.

Mary, glad everything went well with Carlin. Hope everything continues to go good for him.

I'm making a throw cover for my sister and yesterday I was crocheting for quite a while today my arms are swollen. I guess I'll have to give it a rest for today.
I'm going shopping with my friend today. Maybe I should say she is going shopping I'm just taking her. LOL

Hope you all have a great day . We are in for another scorcher of a day here. We are not use to all these high temperatures. The weather is really mixed up . Our normal for this time of year is 17 c. but yesterday we had 35c.

Hugs Margaret

Mary, I'm so pleased all went well with Carlin and that you were there to hold his hand. My heart goes out to him. I hope that the funeral of your friend brings some solace to family and friends.

All, I'm watching the news of the hurricanes and earthquakes and the devastation for lives. We have dear friends who live in Puerto Rico, and are hoping that they are ok. So much for us to be grateful for.

Today is a catch up day, for errands and chores not done while we had company. Also it is my DH's 75th birthday. I think we'll go out to dinner; it will be his decision. He's trying to ignore the birthday, but really, we must celebrate our lives.

P.S. I slept for 2 hours after our house guests left!

Be well,

Agnes

Agnes, it's always good to have visitors but it's also good when they leave. Hope you are able to rest some when you get back home.

Dwayne hoping it's good news for your DW.

Marilyn, keep up the good work.

Going to meet up with my friend from Walmart today. She had asked me to pick her up something on my travels so I'll take that to her. When I get home I must wash the xar. The bugs sure liked it on our travels.LOL

Hope you all have a great day.

Hi All,

Just a quick hello this morning. Leaving soon to take house guests to the Bangor Airport. It's about 1.25 hours away.

The dentist visit went well. All stitches now out, and the healing will move faster.

Mary, best wishes to you, Carlin and family for today.

Agnes

Good evening all. It's been a long day and need to get to sleep so we can get going early in the morning. Thankful that Carlin's surgery will be late morning so we won't have to leave till 6 a.m. to get there.

DS is home & feeling somewhat better. Pain is gone. Thankful that it was not heart related or stroke. They did a Gastroscopic exam today & found that her esophagus is all inflamed and they biopsied a spot that they saw. She returns on Monday for results. Thank you all for the prayers for all concerned.

Agnes, hope you get these stitches taken care of & safe drive.
Bernie, enjoy the GS's visit. I also agree with Agnes, would love to see a picture of your quilt.
Marilyn, at least the scale is moving in the right direction. Enjoy your class.
Dwayne, Glad to hear DW finally got that MRI done. Hope you got encouraging news.
Margaret, hope you had a nice morning with your ladies.

Good Afternoon '48ers,

Marilyn, glad to see you're still moving those numbers in the right direction. Keep up the great work. How are you doing on your treadmill time?

Bernie, sounds like your DH's hard work has paid off. Now he pays the price mowing it...LOL! It's good exercise for him. How is your friend Barb and your sister doing?

Margaret, I'm usually drinking coffee, black, in the morning when the 1st game comes on then switch to h2O. Don't drink anything else. It's the snacking that can get to me and my stomach let's me know it. I wish I could say I had completed the "Honey-Do" list but I think that's one of those 'never ending' kind of lists.

Agnes, I watch the games by myself. It's O.K. and I like it. Family always pops through but usually I'm by myself, maybe one of the pups if I've got something to eat...LOL! Sorry to hear you may have to go back to the Dentist. Hope it gets taken care of soon.

Mary, hoping Carlin does well in N.O. Know you and your family are in my prayers for a successful outcome to all of this. Have a safe trip.

DW had MRI done yesterday and today we go to see the Orthapedic Dr. and get the results from a previous MRI that he couldn't give us in his office that's closer to our home. So a 45 min. drive there and don't know what we'll hear. At this point it's really hard to be positive, but I try. Well, I've got to get going...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone.

Mary, So sorry about your DS and your friend. I hope all goes well with your DS. Will you be going with Carlin on his trip?

Dwayne, if your going to watch football every week you must promise no snacks while doing so. That might be one of your problems. Also if you need to drink something keep it in the fridge that way you'll have to get up each time your thirsty. I guess your DW must be pretty proud of you for doing all the honey do list or at least making a dent in the list by now.

Agnes, sorry to hear about your stitches. I hope you can wait till its a nice day to go . It's no fun traveling in the rain. Hope all goes well.

Going to meet up with my ladies this morning. I'm sure we will have a lot to catch up on.

Hope you all have a great day.

Good morning All,

Mary, so very sorry to hear about DS. Hope she's on the mend soon. Also, sorry to hear about your dear friend who just lost her husband. We're certainly in a difficult time in our lives. I'm sure she will be comforted by good friends like you.

Carlin will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Bernie, can you send a photo of your bear claw quilt. It sounds complicated and fabulous at the same time.
Marilyn, good luck on your weigh in today. We're rooting for you.
Dwayne, those football Sundays do take some time out of the week, don't they? Do you have a group of friends who you watch the games with, or are you on your own rooting for your team? I've learned that either way is fun.
Margaret, I know all about those white knuckles. One of my daughters is a fast driver and it scares me so. I have no idea how she turned into that.

All is well here. I must call the oral surgeon today as it seems that there are a couple of stitches left in my mouth. He took the stitches out last week, so I think these may have been hiding from him. I'm not looking forward to driving there if he wants me to come in today. It's raining and it's a 1.5 hour drive each way. Well, a minor problem I know.

Take care all,
Agnes

Good Evening '48ers,

Yes I'm still here Mary. Sorry for not posting yesterday; actually thought I had?!?!?! If I could only lose weight as easily as I forget things...

Busy day today trying to catch up after 'Football Sunday' and DW had MRI done, then some shopping, so I'm going to try and finish this post tomorrow.

I know M + M and everyone else is watching for me to step out of line, don't worry, DW keeps me in check, sort of...LOL!

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good evening friends. Well our lunch was fabulous but some news of my DS put a damper on our day. She ended up in ER & was admitted to the hospital for observation & further tests. She's been vomiting & chest pain, then this morning chest pain with numbness & weakness in left arm & jaw pain. CT of brain didn't show a bleed so they kind of ruled out a stroke. Think it may be gastritis but checking cardiac enzymes just to be sure it's not heart.

Also learned a sweet friend lost her husband yesterday afternoon while she was still in the hospital recovering from hip surgery.

Carlin leaves for N.O. tomorrow morning. Surgery Wednesday.

Margaret, happy to hear you enjoyed your time away.
Agnes, 3 mile walk? Great!!
Bernie, your bear paw quilt top sounds interesting.
Marilyn, Hope you have a good check in tomorrow.
Dwayne, ok, where are you? You know M & M are checking on you.

Meant to check in yesterday but slept all afternoon after church. Scale looking good and I'm still working on it. Will check in this evening after we return. Hope all have a marvelous Monday.

Good morning everyone. It's good to be back. We had a lovely little vacation and enjoyed our time with our GS. The trip there took quite a bit longer as we made a slight detour to a motorcycle shop and then we hit major construction on the main road . We were on a 3 lane highway and it went down to 1 lane it went on for miles and miles. Our trip to go took us almost 14 hours. The return trip only 11hours .
The Christmas shop that my GS took us to was just beautiful. At one point I got . I got lost in it and had to ask a salesperson how to find my way back to where my hubby was waiting for me. There was so many beautiful things to see it would have taken me at least another day to really see everything. It is the length of 2 football fields long.
We explored his town of Windsor, Ontario. We also realized that he drives very fast. To fast for us . My knuckles are still white.
With our new hybrid car we got fantastic mileage. we made over 1200 k on one tank of gas. We also realized that you can also be on electric at 130 k per hour which our GS showed us. Now you know why my knuckles are still white. LOL

Mary, how is your little guy doing? It must be so hard for him and his parents to go through this, My prayers go out to you all. I'll keep him in my prayers each day. Hope he pulls through it.

Agnes, glad to hear your mouth is on the mend. In a few more months you'll be laughing about this. (Notice I said in a few months) LOL

Bernie, looks like your on your way to your goal. Keep up the good work lady You'll do it.

Marilyn, your going like a house on fire. I wonder what you will tell us your at on Tuesday after your Tops meeting.

Dwayne, I thought of you walking around that Christmas shop. They had a whole section on sports Christmas balls. It was very impressive. I was wondering what one was your team. LOL

Well I'm a little up but if you 'd see my legs you would know why. But I'm sure when I weigh in on Friday I'll be ok. Honestly we ate very carefully but we did a great amount of walking to. LOL

Hope I haven't missed anyone.

Have a great day.

Hugs Margaret

Good Monday Morning All,

Had a good day yesterday. Visited by phone with my daughters, went on a 3 mile walk with our house guests (their idea, and it was a stretch for me but I did it), had a love dinner at home, played my ukulele, read a little, and heard that the Patriots won their game. All in all a pleasant day.

Today I have two work meetings and some prep for them. We're to get rain starting tonight and through Wednesday. The outer skirts of the next hurricane coming up the coast. Not a major problem and we need the rain.

Hope you all have a good day.
Agnes

Nice easy goin' Sunday here. It is cloudy and cool while DH is watering his grass like crazy to see if the final seed will come up before weather sets in. I hear the TV downstairs playing FOOTBALL. Dwayne, guess you are watching tool.

I've been piecing a bear paw quilt top and need a break from that so I'm decluttering my sewing room and petting the fabric as I put it all away. If you love textiles you will understand.

Marilyn, glad you are okay.

Agnes, hope you are feeling better.

Just began to rain so I must run and close windows.

Good morning everyone - hope you are all enjoying this great Sunday we have been blessed with.

I am somewhat tired today. Last night when it came to eat supper I bypassed it. I was having what I call a bad 'gas' day where the gas is located up in my chest on the left side - was like that all day. Finally at 5 pm I took a pill to help with it and it eased it a bit but by 6:45 was still uncomfortable so hubby took me to the Emergency. Was there till just after midnight - waiting for tests to be complete - said all was well it was not my heart so just a bad case of gas which I thought it was. It just took a very long time for it to move - and was very uncomfortable.

So this coming week I am going to go see my doc to see what I can do to avoid this happening as it happens more than I like to admit. Also need to get daughter in has her one foot has strange marks on it - think it could be either excemea (spelling) but as it has been like this now for 3 weeks it has to be looked at.

Am ready to go to Church - just need to make one more bathroom stop before we leave so hubby just called me to tell me 15 minutes till 'taxi' leaves so guess I had better get up and move.

Be blessed

Good Morning All,

Hope you all have a good day and reach your goals. I have a few work things to do, and also will be visiting a friend and trying to get back to playing the uke. It is fun, but practice does help. Company wants to go for a walk today, and I am looking forward to joining them and moving this body.

Best,
Agnes

Had a great day with friends today. Our cooler weather is warming back up. Did not get a walk in but will make a better effort to do so tomorrow.

Agnes, I agree, company is almost always good but sometimes, especially with your mouth issues, you just need a little alone time.

Bernie, hope your sewing day went well & you get a good night's sleep tonight!

Dwayne, good to hear that your DW had a good dentist appt & that it made her happy so you in turn are happy. Happy wife, happy life, right? LOL Yes, DH will be coming to N.O. with me on Wed. He won't let me go alone...not that I would want to make a 3 hr trip alone.

Marilyn, hope you were able to get your walking in today. It's harder some days than others but it always seems to give me a little more energy afterwards.

Good morning my friends - praying that you are all enjoying a great Saturday - remember you can enjoy the day without going off a healthy eating plan

It is 9:30 am and only 45 F outside - for me that is a bit chilly making the house feel cold - can't believe it is just about time to have the furnace on - without being able to sit outside during the summer because of all the smoke I feel we lost a season - but am glad I am alive and able to enjoy the next season

Am struggling with getting up and walking - not sure why I am fighting it like I am as I know I need to and the more I don't the worst it is going to be. So as it is only 9:30 am I am giving myself 15 minutes to check out some teams here and then I need to get up and walk on the treadmill if only for a few minutes. Aim will be to get in 10 minutes - want to start a streak going of 10 minutes each day.

Was just looking at 2 streaks that I have going:
No pop = 316 days = just about a year
Logging on to spark people = 148 days

Now am going to add to that treadmill walking

Am keeping on the lower side of calories today, Sunday and Monday and will walk on the treadmill = doing this to see if I can get the scale on Tuesday to budged even 1/2 pound would be nice.

So am off to the races = one of todays chore is to make the following
2 cups of homemade ketchup
1 cup of homemade soysauce

And of course I have 2 Bible studies to do and also have to get out my study which I will be starting on Tuesday at our church.

And I have a lot of yarn to get made up into baby blankets and some really pretty red/white yarn for a sweater I want to make up

Have my work cut out for me

Be blessed

Good Morning '48ers,

Mary, praying for a safe trip to N.O. for you and your 'lil' guy Carlin. I know having his Gramma there will help him. Is your DH going with you? I'm sure the walk was just what you needed. Helps clear the mind, you can talk, think and ask for that help we all need.

Bernie, I know what you mean about that waking up and not going back to sleep. When that happens I just lay there and TRY to fall back to sleep. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. Just wondering what kind of 'time limit' I should set for myself; if I can't fall asleep I'll get up. Any of you out there in '48 land have suggestions?

OHIOHEART, miss seeing more posts from you.

Marilyn, glad to hear you're keeping up your walking. It needs to be done.

Agnes, I did have to chuckle with your posts. Yeah it's nice and all to have friends staying but there are times when YOU do need that 'alone time'. Hope you're still enjoying their company.

DW's trip to the Dentist went well (can't remember if I'd mentioned that before; why do we lose those thoughts?) She got a new filling and all is well now, she was so happy we went out to lunch before we went shopping. One down, I don't know how many more to go.

Well I'm off for a bit. See you all tomorrow BEFORE football!

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning,
Woke at 4:30 am and can't go back to sleep so I will work on Bible Study of Romans before going to a Sewing Day to make holiday party decorations. Can't believe we are moving toward that time of year.

Mary, safe travels as you go to be with Carlin and his family. Praying for him, his family and you.

Agnes, enjoy your company and time away from them. emoticon

Wishing everyone a great weekend.

Mary,
Good for you for going for a walk yesterday. Every bit helps, and walking also helps my general outlook on like.
Also, very best wishes for your Carlin and his family as he makes through these next weeks.

All, We have visitors at our home. Although they are easy going and it is nice to have them here, I have been finding it difficult to have others around. Yesterday afternoon, I excused myself for a couple of hours, took a nap, and read for awhile in my bedroom. I really needed to do that.

Hope you all have a good day.

Agnes

Good visit with Carlin & his mom today. He returns to N.O. on Tuesday for more labs & family -doctor consultation, then to surgery for Medi-port on Wednesday morning, then being admitted as in-patient to start Chemo. He asked me to be there so I will be traveling the 3 hr drive early Wed morning.

DH & I walked 15 min this afternoon. Made 1/2 mile. It's a start.

Good afternoon everyone - hope you are getting ready to have a great weekend

I am all prepared to stay focused and on plan as I want to be down on Tuesday but I didn't like this morning's number on the scale so am going to really have to work it this weekend - not just what I eat but how much and of course walking for exercise

Hubby got our hedge out back all trimmed way down - lower than I wanted but to the level he wanted - so not it wont need to be trimmed for a few years. Now to get him to help do the windows in and out especially the kitchen windows . When doing the windows he always says the same thing = 'how often do we need to do these' and I answer back as always = 2 x a year unless very dirty between.

It is now noon - good cooking show called 'The Chew' is on - love watching the recipes they make.

It is now time for me to go and walk the treadmill and get in up to 5 minutes by 1:30 - and 10 minutes before supper

Have a great day everyone

Good morning,

emoticon emoticon weighing in at 182 today. Will change my weigh in ticker tomorrow since I joined the Fall 5% Weight Loss Challenge and Saturday will be my official weigh in for that team. I have exceeded my mini goal to drop 2 pounds for the month since I am down 2.5 pounds as of today. emoticon

Here's to all having a good week going forward.

Mary,

You'll be fine. You've been on the move and a lot is going on in your life. You'll get back in the swing of things soon. Even doing one of the things you mentioned: walking, tracking, meal planning, will have you on your way.

All,
I'm down to 146.5, but really, I know I've lost because there's just so much applesauce, blended yogurt, and scrambled eggs that a person can eat. It will be interesting to see if I can maintain this loss once I can eat like a normal person. My doc wants me to be at 138, which is the top end of the ok section for BMI.

My best wishes to all of you, and Mary, please give Carlin an extra hug from me.

Agnes

Good morning all, wanted to try to post early so I wouldn't get side tracked. Slept in this morning but also attempted the scale & wished I hadn't. Doesn't look like I will have a good report tomorrow. Have to refocus & turn this around while I still can. First step is to get back to tracking & meal planning as well as get back to walking. That is my goal & to be accountable to you all here for those 3 things.

Thank you all for your support for Carlin, my Lil' Guy.

Praying all of you are doing well.

Am having difficulty with being committed to walking on the treadmill - don't understand why I don't do it when I know I need to - goal is to get on it today and get in 10 minutes min today. So in 15 minutes I will start

Eating is going pretty good but need to watch as I do want another loss for Tuesday - looks good today but need to stay focused

Want to get the house vacuumed this morning but hubby helps with that because of my back problem and he is wanting to finish up the trimming of the hedge out back so will have to see - might have to try to do the vacumming myself though the pain in the back when finished is not nice

Take care everyone

Good Morning '48ers,

First off, Mary, know you, your family and especially the lil' guy are in my prayers. Sorry to hear also about the loss of an old friend. Mary, does your DH like Pro or college football. I'd guess you're an LSU family?

Agnes, glad to hear you're on the mend from that dental issue. DW goes in today and will hopefully get fixed with her dental issue. Thanks for the little 'boot to the backside'. Yes I've been doing home workouts and "Honey Do" lists that get me working up more of a sweat than the gym...LOL! I shoot for 60 min. every day.

Marilyn, double congratulations on your weight loss and your 'jackpot hit'. Way to go! Who knew losing weight could make you money?

Bernie, I'm getting to the point with football that I still love watching it they're turning it so political it's like "Hey, it's a game, you're paid an outrageous amont of money, save the statements for 'AFTER' the game and you're off the field." I'll see how it goes and if it continues then I'll have a lot more time for other things, just don't tell DW...

Well, off for some breakfast than taking DW to Dentist. Praying she gets this issue behind her and we can move on from this...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Hi All,

Got the stitches out yesterday and I know the healing will continue well. I don't have to go back to the dentist for 3 weeks. He was pleased with what he saw. Still need to limit what I eat, but I should be doing that anyway, right?

I only have a few minutes, but want to let Mary know how sorry I am to hear about your Lil Guy and the passing of your friend. Both are so sad. I know that the Lil Guy's family and you will help him through this difficult time.

Best to all,
Agnes

Well, I missed 2 days of posting and there are so many posts!

Welcome OhioStar600! Hope you will join in and we can get to know you. There is a lot of encouragement and fun to be had here.

Mary, so sorry to hear about your little guy's diagnosis. He will be in my prayers as well as his family and you. Also, sad to hear your loss of a good friend. Glad you had a good trip.

Marilyn, you are doing so well at staying focused on your weight loss. However, I am going to try to beat you this month. Come on everyone. We have to give her some competition! Hope you keep filling up your piggy bank.

Agnes, hope the tooth pain goes away soon. I know it really takes it's toll on other activities when you aren't feeling well.

Dwayne, I mentioned to my husband that football season was in full swing and this year he doesn't seem to care. He is spending a lot of time trying to get grass going on about a half an acre so that is where his focus is at the moment. I am happy to report that he is also focusing on his weight and is dropping some pounds and is no longer bringing home all those tempting goodies It helps me stay on track. Hope your repairman has come by now.

Margaret, Happy 2nd Honeymoon! We are at 49 years together this December. Have a wonderful trip.

Hope I didn't overlook anyone. Missing some of other 48ers. Hope you are doing well and know that your are missed.

I had a wonderful Birthday weekend with my nursing friends. Thank you all for the birthday greetings! Made this old gal feel great.

Margaret, hope you're back continues feeling better, especially for your Honeymoon Trip! Hope you enjoy your time with family & especially your time together as you travel.

Agnes, your dental surgeries sound painful at best. Sure hope you continue to heal well & that it helps the problem! Glad you are starting to get out & enjoy the sunshine.

Dwayne, Glad you are enjoying the football time but don't tell my DH that it's football season, ok? LOL Don't those repair guys take their time about showing up? I've been waiting almost a month now for them to come back & change some parts on my washer. I called last week to make sure they had not forgotten about me but they claim they are still waiting on one part that hasn't come in.

Marilyn, good to hear that you are finally seeing some blue skys instead of smoke. One of my friends from Montana came to our retreat this past weekend & said the fires were within 25 miles from her also.

Bernie, your rafting trip sounds like it was so much fun! Happy to hear that it was a fun time for you. 2 lbs a month is doable & I'm sure you will succeed with your plan to be in the 160's by the wedding! You can do it!

emoticon ohioheart600/MARGE Happy that you found our little group. Hope you come back often!

Well I think I'm all caught up on posts. I'll try to keep up now. emoticon

First of all, sometimes I just don't know where my time goes. I have been on the run again. Sorry for being away so long. I was going Friday morning till Sunday night. Early morning Monday & Tuesday then today a SR Luncheon about an hour away. In the meantime, loss of an old friend.

Then yesterday I get a call from my "Lil Guy"s mom. He's been in remission from Leukemia for 2 yrs now but it seems to be back. Heart valve placement a month ago looks good. But he went to a regularly scheduled appt & his blood work didn't look good. This morning they did a Bone Marrow Biopsy. They go back next week to start Chemo again. His Mom is heartbroken & so am I. I know he won the fight first time around but they say a second round is much harder on Down's kids. I'm praying that will not be the case with him.

Well, I will try to catch up with the reading. But first, I have to admit that the scale has not been my friend. Last Friday's weight was 190. I recorded it but never got around to posting it. Yesterday it was higher.

Mary

Hi All,

Marilyn, congratulations to you on your weight loss and cash gain! You're a great inspiration.

Dwayne, No excuses. You can get some exercise in even when you can't get to the gym. I know it's not the same, but it's still good, no matter what you do.

Margaret, congratulations on your anniversary travels. Best wishes for a very pleasant time with DH.

All, I just got back from the dentist, and the stitches are now gone. The pain is bugging me, but I'm hoping the tylenol kicks in soon as my doggie wants to go for a walk and it is nice outside.

Best,
Agnes

Hope you are having a great Wednesday

It is chilly here this morning, but the sky is blue so am loving that.

Am working on being a friend with the treadmill = really struggling with getting in the exercise. It will come but I am not sure why I am fighting it so much.

Had a nice weigh in yesterday so am doing what I can this week to make sure I have another one - love seeing scale move down. Have started using a little piggy bank - every week when I lose I put $1 dollar in it - will count it all on March 7 2018 when it is one year of starting TOPS. As I had won the pot for June July and August at TOPS ($53) I thought I would continue and see if I can get this up close to $100 by March 7 - I was able to add $1 on Tuesday and praying that I will do it again next week.

Well today is wash the windows day = don't think hubby remembers that but hopefully he will be willing to help

Be blessed

Good Morning '48ers,

Well, another day waiting for the sprinkler repair guy. Home workout again and it's just not the same. Tomorrow DW has a Dentist appt. and that's going to take up half of the day so I just deal with it as best I can and do what I can. Trying to learn that 'patience' thing, and just wonder why I can't have it NOW?! LOL!

Hope all of you are doing well. Margaret sounds like you've got a fun little 'honeymoon' planned. Enjoy yourselves, you deserve it. 50 years is quite the milestone. Your husband must be quite the guy putting up with you all these years! GOTCHA! LOL! I'm sure you 2 compliment each other in so many ways. Funny how we change over the years and 2 people almost become 1. Again, congratulations on your anniversary.

Marilyn, sounds like you're pulling away from me. Glad to hear you're doing so well.

With that I'll sign off and see what happens today.

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone.

Today I'm meeting up with a friend from Walmart. We see each other every 2 weeks about. We talk on the phone often but it's not the same as when we are together. LOL

Tomorrow hubby and I will be leaving on a little trip to go and see our GS and his wife in Windsor Ontario. It's going to be our 2nd honeymoon as for our 50th wedding anniversary they gave us a honeymoon pot. So now's the time to cash it in. We are also going to Detroit to see some things there as well. So I won't be here for weigh in but so far this week it's stayed the same. I'll weigh in when I get back. I don't know if I'll be able to check in but I'll try.

Hope you all have a great day.

Hugs Margaret

Good afternoon everyone - hope you are all having a great Tuesday.

Well today was my TOPS meeting - and I am so happy. Here is how I am doing for September so far|:

September 5 = 279.6
September 12 = 278.4

Down 1.2 so far this month. This is the 3rd week in a row with losing - going to work on making it 4 weeks next Tuesday.

It is cool here today - fall is getting close - our hot weather has up and left - and we haven't had one bbq this summer as we have been smoked in since end of May - fall is a pretty time of the year but it means the colder weather - oh am missing the summer we didn't seem to have - had all the hot weather but to smoky to be outside -sad

Hope everyone is safe in Florida and Texas = still sending up prayers for all of
you.

Lunch time has come and gone - need to get some work done

Be blessed

Good Morning All,

Welcome Ohioheart600. Please stop by often and tell us about your goals. As you've heard, we're a small but supportive group. I live in Maine, am semi-retired, have two adult daughters who live in other states. My husband and I have been married for 44 years. My how the time has flown by.

I've been away from the 48er group for awhile, but they have welcomed me back and I am finding the support and encouragement helpful. I am here to get support to live a healthy and positive life, and along the way to lose some excess lbs.

Best,
Agnes

Good morning everyone.

Marilyn, good luck on your weigh in for Tops this afternoon.

emoticon Ohioheart600 as Dwayne said we are a small group but we help each other out as much as we can. Hope you do stop by often to let us know a little about yourself, How long have you been on Sparks? Can we help you with anything?

Yesterday I did chair youga. Seeing it was in the afternoon it was a little tough for me . I was so relaxed I could feel myself falling off to sleep. I don't think your supposed to do that. LOL

Hope you all have a great day.

Good Evening '48ers,

Welcome OHIOHEART600! You'll enjoy this little group of ours. Hope to see you post often. We have a "Biggest Loser" weight loss contest every month with weigh-ins on Fridays. Mary is our leader and keeps us all on our toes. So I hope you'll post often and tell us about yourself.

Late posting for me tonight. DW had me going and waiting for a repair to be made to our sprinkler system and no repairman showed up today, so maybe tomorrow?

Gonna sign off and finish watching Monday Night Football...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone - hope you are off to a good start this week.

It is cool this morning - guess summer is gone - hoping it will be a bit warmer this afternoon

Tomorrow is weigh in day - and looks good today - right now as long as it is down something I will be happy - it is consistency that I am working on

Found a sweater to crochet - have lots of patterns for knitting sweater but wanted to work on a crochet one - so have some wool ready and will be giving it a try some time this week hopefully. About 3/4 way through a baby blanket for the Pregnancy Care Clinic then think I will start my sweater - hubby says no more wool till I get more of what I have used up - hmmmmmm but I see so many nice colours out there for baby blankets and sweaters - oh well cool weather is arriving so good time to work on these projects.

Have a good day everyone

Hi All,

Thank you for your kind wishes. I am doing better every day.

Bernie, your rafting trip sounds like a lot of fun. When I visited some of the national parks in Utah two years ago, it was special to see the Colorado River in different places. Even by car, it was a great trip. What a gorgeous part of the world.

I'm feeling very fortunate here in the northeast, as many in our country are dealing with severe weather.

Hope you all have a good Monday.

Agnes

I was in Moab, Utah floating the Colorado River. We were buzzed by a tour helicopter flying low in the canyons and also a prop plane. Two tour jet boats came through our group of rafts and duckies so everyone devised a plan to soak them with the water guns when they came back through as they had to go very slow as they came past us. The people on the boats got a kick out of getting soaked and since it was so hot after the initial shock of the cold water it is refreshing to get wet. It was great fun, fabulous scenery and lots of memories.

Agnes, hope you are feeling better today.

Good Morning '48ers,

First off I was a day off on football! OOPS! The excitement got to me. It's today and yes, I'll be working out during commercials. Hope all of you are having a great finish to the week-end.

Bernie, glad you had such a good time rafting. Where were you? At least being in the water shouldn't have been too hot. Here in So. Calif. it's "supposed" to get into the 70's next week. Keeping it all crossed for that. And congratulations on the pending nuptuals of your son. Great goal you've set for yourself and really quite doable. You go girl!

Agnes, so sorry you're in pain. I know that feeling too well. Hope it ends really soon for you. I know what you mean about the pain medication but more often than not it's best to take it and get the rest you need for your body to recover.

Margaret, glad you had such a good time with your sisters. Family is so important.

Well I'm off. Here's to the Chicago Bears and the 1st day of football. All of you have a great, Blessed day...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

First, let me wish a Happy Belated Birthday to Mary!!! emoticon Hoping it was lovely just like you! emoticon Enjoy your nursing trip and be safe in your travels.

Not sure if I mentioned it but my son is recently engaged to a lovely woman and they are planning a wedding for the Spring of next year. Aside from being thrilled for them I see this as an opportunity for me to set a new goal. I want to look and feel my best for their wedding so I am setting a doable goal of dropping 2 pounds a month by their wedding. I'm thinking I have 8 months times 2 pounds equals a 16 pound lose. I started this month's challenge at 184.5 - 16 = 166.5 in May, 2018. Oh my! I haven't seen the 160 range in years and it gives me goose bumps to think I can be there in 8 months. I'm going to shoot for it even through the Holidays. Determination and planning will be my watch words. I thought if I voiced it to you I would be more accountable. Please cheer me on.

It is amazing that it is football season. There is a nip of Fall in the air and some of our trees are already beginning to change color.

Wishing relief to those of you suffering pain, safety and fun in your travels and to all a good week as we strive for a lose on weigh in Friday. emoticon

Good Morning All,

Bernie, I haven't caught up with all the news, so I didn't know you'd been on a rafting trip. How adventurous! It sounds like it was a lot of fun, too. It's good to try things that stretch us in different ways.

Margaret, so happy that you had some time with your sisters. I know you have a big family. It must be comforting to have them in your life.

Dwayne, Yes indeed it is football season again. It doesn't seem like it's time for that but I guess it is. I don't watch it very often, unless one of my teams is playing. Hope you have a good day, and don't forget to do those exercises during the commercials.

It's a nice day here. I'm still dealing with pain from the oral surgery. It kept me awake last night and eventually I gave in and took the pain medication. I just hate taking it, but it did help me sleep a little better. I will go for a walk today to get out of the house and get some sun. I also have a friend who will visit this morning. She is such a dear person. It will be nice to see her. We sometimes play our ukuleles together, which is fun since we are both very much in the learning stage.

Hope you all have a good day.

Agnes

Good morning everyone.

Having fun with my sisters but have been doing a lot of traveling. We've been all over ten place. It was fun seeing what was new I my old stomping ground.

I'll be making an afghan for my sister. She needs it for her friend. I worked on it a bit last night but it was hard to see it clearly as it is in black and grey. The stitches seem t all run into each other. LOL oh well it will take a while.

Will be heading home today. So will hubby it'll be nice to be back home again.

Hope you all have a great Sunday.

Sorry I have been MIA since my rafting trip. My family and friends took really good care of me and it was great fun although very hot!

Good Morning '48ers,

Margaret, enjoy your time with your sisters. Family is so important.

Marilyn, hope you get some relief from all that smoke soon. Take care over this week-end.

For me, today is a lot of 'Honey-Do's' and tomorrow, being the first day of football I'm going to 'plant it' and watch all day! But I will do some exercises while I watch. There's so many commercials I'll be able to get plenty of time in.

Hoping everyone else out there is having a great week-end...

Til next time,
Carpe Diem,
Dwayne

Good morning everyone - hope you are enjoying this great Saturday we have been given.

Took a peek at the scale this morning - believe I am down about 1 pound - around that number anyway = need to really take care this weekend so that Tuesday will be a good weigh in

Overcast today - most of it is smoke but just seems so dreary out - good day - again - to stay inside - seems like that is all we have done since May due to the fires and smoke = but things will get better

I have gotten off to a slow start today - think it is going to be one of those days


Well next stop is shower = think I will do that now

Be blessed

Good morning everyone.

Just a quick note to let you know I'm off to visit with my sisters. I don't get to see them as often as I would like so while hubby is away I'll visit them.

The back pain has finally eased off . It's still there but at least I can move. Hoping to get in some walking this weekend.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I know this is your day so enjoy it! Eat, forget the weight and enjoy all the love you're receiving from family and friends. Know that all of us here on this board are sending our love to you.

Weight for me today is 231.5#'s - UP 1.5#'s - not what I 'planned' so I think I better keep quite and start producing some better results. I know why this is happening and I'm not handling it right.

Re-read my post from yesterday and yup, I do need to keep quiet. So with that I'm off.

Til next time,

Good Morning All,

I've lost a few pounds. I'm at 147.5, but I know that is because of the oral surgery, so I expect it won't last long.

Mary, first of all, Happy Birthday! I hope you do something wonderful for yourself. You deserve it! Second, this surgery is because my teeth have never come up between the gums like most people, i.e., there's always been very little gum in the front. Just an anatomical abnormality. My teeth are pretty good, and I have very minor periodontitis, but I will loose them all if there is no gum to keep them in my mouth. This surgery is supposed to add gum to that area. I've had three rounds already, and this is the fourth and last. I went to three dentists/oral surgeons for consultations before deciding to do it. Really between a rock and a hard place - either do the surgery or loose the teeth which also has its own set of problems. Hopefully, this will help.

All, I hope you have a good day and weekend. As for me, I'm doing fine. It will take some time for the healing. It seems that there is some sun outside and that's where I'm going now. My dog deserves a walk.

Best,
Agnes
