Gail - that's so funny you mentioned about the security camera. I'm sure they make a person look 10 pounds heavier. The same thing happened to me once, and I turned around and went back home in a big hurry. Decided then that I just had to lose some weight if I wanted to be seen in public again.

i just got back from the city. had to go see our accountant, go to the bank, then i hit a thrift shop. usually i hit 3 or 4 in that area, but, wasn't in the mood and didn't really need anything. oh, and went to whole foods. i only spent 25 bucks there. i guess i wasn't in a shopping mood today.
thought i looked kind of cute when i left home. then when i went into a store with the security camera tv mounted at the entrance so you see yourself when you walk in, i realized once again that i live in a fantasy world. i did not look cute at all. i looked like a fat middle aged broad who really needs a haircut. emoticon glad that was my last stop of the day. not sure if i could've faced my accountants in their nice office, all slim and well dressed if i had a fresh image of my not cute self in my head. emoticon

Joy, if I'd started hemorhaging (I swear that's not a word I've ever written before - no clue how to spell it either and the spell checker gave up too!) last night I would have freaked out! I really think the tea bag was what shut off my slow drip. I haven't had the nerve to look in my mouth yet and probably won't. My check feels funny because there's no tooth there, and that's weird enough for me right now. I never drink black tea but now I'm a believer in having the tea bags around!

Leslie - the tea bag does work! I remember when hubby had his wisdom teeth out. All of a sudden, his jaw started hemmoraging (spelling?) and really freaked me out. Called my sister and we had to take him back, and they put a tea bag on the area and the bleeding quickly stopped. This happened within 24 hours of the surgery. So, tea bags are a good thing to keep around the house.

I didn't sleep all that great and I think it was because the oral surgeon's post-care paperwork suggested using a black tea bag to help stop the bleeding and I decided to to do that at 10:30 p.m. I think might have swallowed more caffeine that I thought I would! Anyway, so far today no pain! I lost energy part way into the day, so I'm working from home now. Might also take a nap!

Congrats on the weight loss Jim!

KOKOSKA - don't feel bad because your weight loss isn't as impressive as some of the other team members. I took my measurements, and that is what I rely on when the scale is not budging. (Which it hasn't budged much for the last 8 weeks - but it hasn't gone up.) But I am slimmer looking in the mirror and pants fit much nicer now. Plus, my blood sugar issues are very good now. Some of us are having a slower journey. Don't give up.

Well, as usual I am getting nothing on my list done yet. Errands set me back a bit on time, and then my mother called and set me back some more.

I think I will go back to another trick I do with myself. I write down that I will accomplish one thing today. I feel better when I get at least one thing done and crossed off.

So sad, isn't it?

Everyone have a great Labor Day weekend!

Today is a good Friday. I hope I don't jinx myself by saying I have had a very productive morning and am finally catching up on things.

Football for my nephews tomorrow, then I am going to try to catch up around my house over the weekend.

Have a great day all.

Morning,

Not much planned for today I need To go return some stuff but other than that just relax. I've almost made it through my first week low carb. It has been really easy this time. I've had a couple of cravings but not many.

Already after 1:30 pm here -- the day has flown (as usual)!

Almost of all of ebay is packed and will head to the post office soon.

Food is on track, and feeling good.

Short, I know, but sweet. :)

Way to go, Jim! (Oops, no pun intended!)

Nothing scheduled for today. Nothing! My tutoring session got cancelled, so I get to stay home all day. Hurray!

:) Looks like we're all getting an early start! Happy Friday, all!

Don't tell me what you believe; show me what you do and I will tell you what you actually believe.

It sure is. I was preparing myself to start this thread and lo and behold it was already started. And the fact the I'm typing this in now means that I got up with enough time to spare that I can do it while still at home. Yipee. Lost about 5 pounds since yesterday - which I kinda thought I would based upon the numerous trips to the bathroom yesterday. I need to get some ketone strips; but I suspect I flipped into ketosis and dumped a bunch of water weight. Bacon is on the stove; scambled eggs on the way. It's going to be a good day.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!
