My Grandparents did a lot of that. They also made us kids Toy Boxes, rocking horses, a kids Hutch, our Hope Chests and then they built a Cabin from the ground up doing all the work themselves.
They were real talented.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Hi Jadzea May,
We bought an old 1940's small two-storey house that had never been finished downstairs-it was a workshop for the owner. A previous owner had begun a project to make it a separate living quarters (we're zoned R1, so we don't call it a duplex) and we've been making it happen. The bathroom is installed, kitchen plumbed in, and some drywall is up. So now we're at the 90% done, 90% to go stage.
Our hope is to run a tiny, one unit B and B when it's done, since that is legal with our zoning.
We hope to be back by the end of April, in time for Oregon springtime.

Thanks again, fellow Oregonians. It is nice to get your "letters from home" so to speak. Can't wait to get back to my downstairs renovation project, plant a veg garden, and work on the landscaping around the koi pond. Not to mention see my kids and pals.
Very odd watching the inauguration here in Oz- tried to stay up last night, but the speech didn't start until 2:30 AM (our Wednesday)...luckily they are replaying this morning. Problem was, I think I went way overboard munching dried fruit last night. Oh well, back on the horse today, I am.

Thanks All, hopefully we can have some fun as we get lighter...today I was speaking with the cute little blond in the office, mentioned I'd like to lose 75 kilos to make my doctor happy, and realized that was probably way more than she weighed (165#)!
Had to laugh, all I have to do is lose a complete person's weight...no problem, watch me. emoticon

Wife and I have been sailing/living on our boat for last several years, in between 4-6 mo. "visits" to our home in Yachats. Now we find ourselves in Australia, and it costs too much to fly home just for fun. Anyway, I just returned from the hospital...was in for a week after having a cardiac episode...figure it must be time for a new plan!
I've lost weight a couple of times in my life, like 85+ pounds, and it felt so good I just relaxed and put it all back. This time I'm more motivated; quitting cigs, exercising, etc. cuz it's kind of life or death time. This isn't something I'm going to try to do, it's something I have to do, and this site seems like it will be a big help. We love having the diet and exercise all planned out for us, and the substitutions being so easy ( wife Ladysailor is on the program too).
So, during the next couple of years, I'll be lurking here, offering and accepting encouragement, and sharing landmarks as they occur. BTW, just weighed myself at the nearby fish processing plant...down 11 lbs. already since they weighed me at the hospital less than a week ago! I know it's probably just water weight and I won't keep seeing such dramatic results, but it still feels good to know I'm on my way. May we all feel fine in 2009!
Here's a link to my sailing web site if you're interested- www.sailinglinks.com
