Oh,Vicki, my heart goes out to you! With your Mom being down to a weight like that you must be worried sick about her. You probably feel like feeding her all the time. When my husband (from before) had cancer we stopped weighing him when he hit 110. But at least we knew the reason he was losing weight - stomach cancer.

Hindsight is always good, same with this accident. You feel guilty and you tell yourself, "why didn't I turn around and look." One time I backed out of my garage when liviing in Sedona and slammed right into my son's pickup. I just wasn't used to anyone parking there, and it was soon after my husband had died. Luckily he was a painter and knew body and fender work too, so he fixed both of them himself. I could have seen him if I'd looked over my shoulder.

Got my hair cut yesterday (finally) and one other errand, then diarrhea in the evening, so it kind of ruined my evening, but caused the scale to move on down to 141.0 so that kind of made up for it. I'm addicted to MONK, so I watched several of his shows that were on my TV recorder. Lots to do today. Place is rented, but I want to go see how the lawn and yard looks before they move in.

What a good samaritan you are, Vicki! I do not know one other person that would have taken the time to drive the woman to the ER, and to wait for her there. You are a jewel!

Anymore, the repair bills for having body work done to a vehicle are so darned high that it does not take too much damage to have the insurance company declare it a TOTAL! It's what happened to my cute little convertible the time the full-sized pick-up hit me head on. But it is such a relief that the lady wasn't hurt, at that age it is so easy to break a bone! And glad you came out of it OK too.

Wasn't it nice that this happened AFTER you had cleaned your house? lol

Good Morning! I wish our pool was open full time now but until school gets out it is only open on weekends. Then they have cut the days so it will be only open 5 days. The indoor pool is open but that is on the other base and since that is 30 minutes in traffic, it is so not worth it. This summer the pool at the outdoor rec center will be open the days ours is closed but that is on the other side of town and there is no guarantee you can get in once you get there. Not worth the 45 min drive. So I guess I will wait, maybe by the time the pool is open full time the water will have warmed up. Our has been unseasonable cold. It has been in the 50's when I get up and only warming up to the mid 70's. Not very warm at all. Dh should be home sometime in the next 3 days which will be nice.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I envy you the swimming, Vicki. When I lived in Sun City West I could go to the Rec Center and enjoy swimming any time I wanted, and looking back on it, I wish I had spent a lot more time swimming. We never miss things until they are gone! I could still go there, as a Home owner I have to buy into the Rec Card thing each year, even though I don't live there -- but it's like 12 miles or so over, so a 25 mile roundtrip isn't worth it to me. If I find myself over in that area I may stop by, so for that reason alone I'll start to carry a gym bag with me in the trunk.

I've been lazy the last couple of days -- need to get more exercise in today, before the scale decides it's time to "punish" me! Have a great day everyone!

The only time I miss work is when I think about "long week-ends." As a retired person, my life is: ONE LONG WEEK-END. Guess I shouldn't complain, most people dream of this situation all during their working lives.

Good Morning, I hope everyone is having a good Memorial Day weekend. The base is having a service at the Rome-American Veterans Cemetery In Rome today. I could have gone down with the band but wasn't sure of everyone's schedule and by the time I knew it was too late. It is about a 3 hour drive on some small roads after you leave the highway and I don't do little roads. Son made it home, went to the ER. The doctor was a joke, a contractor not a military doctor. Had the attitude that she doesn't see anything on the xray therefore, there is nothing wrong. They wrapped his ankle when it was his foot, gave him motrin and crutches. Told him to stay off of it. He has an appointment with physical therapy this week, they will get him in with ortho so he can get another mri. My son has no respect for that doctor, we have had her before and she always says the same thing. Usually she is wrong. I had hoped for a nice weather day but as I sit here eating breakfast, storm clouds are coming in. Oh well, I guess I will workout at home.

Regretably we do not attend church when we are in Yarnell -- simply because there isn't any. We don't have much of anything in this little town, not even a gas station or a bank. They do have one small restaurant, and we liked it when they first opened, but then they started to cut back on things -- so we haven't been back since.

My left knee has been giving me lots of problems, hurts most of the time. When I bring this up to the doctors they just say "arthritis" like that's it. Does that mean everyone with arthritis has to just put up with being in pain all the time. What a bummer!

It will probably be a couple of months before the bees will actually produce honey that can be harvested. Takes them time to build up the honeycombs, and you have to go through a process where the Queen is blocked, otherwise she lays eggs in each little cell -- and if you want honey, you do not want the egg in there. So it takes a bit of patience in the beginning, and of course a lot depends on what is in bloom at the time. In the spring when the citrus is blooming down in the Phoenix we will probably move our Hive to a location where we can let them feed off all the blooms of the grapefruit and oranges. Not lemons though, as it does not make good honey.

Glad to hear your garage sale was a success. Yes, they are a lot of work, so over the past year we have just donated everything except when I got rid of a lot of furniture -- I put that in a consignment place, which worked out quite well. Difficult to get much for anything any more.

Enjoy the nice long week-end, and hope the month ends up showing a loss for all of you!emoticon

Renee -- it's a bummer that DH is having such wonderful weather and YOU are suffering. Oh, well -- isn't that how it goes so often.

Right now we are having a cold jag, got down to 48 last night, and the expected high is 65 or so. Seems so funny to have to dig a sweater out of the closet when we are usually cranking up the A/C. Changeable, that's all I can say.

Hope you make LOTS & LOTS of money at your garage sale, Vicki!

No pool for me. Nasty thunderstorms. Had to unplug all of the electronics. They closed the pool early due to the weather. It was so funny, my daughter was on the balcony looking at the rain and hail when there was a large flash of lightening and then thunder right away, I hear a squeak as she is running in the door. That was when I got off the computer. Had a bad storm yesterday also. Pouring rain woke me out this morning. My dh is in Spain, the weather is beautiful there. He has spent much of the time at the beach.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hey! Melting in the rain would be a terrific thing -- I'd stand out there naked until I was about a size 6 or 8! WooHoo!!

The scale did nudge down one of those .2's that I talk about all the time, and I'm full of energy, plus it was so cool this morning I decided to wait an hour to go for my walk. But then my daughter called, and we were on the phone for more than an hour -- there went the walk. Now I'm starting to get tired, so might take my nap before the walk. Had great spins today too, so lots of reasons to be in a good mood!

Glad to see so many people, especially you new ones, checking in on our Chat Posts -- it's great to learn more about you, see how you're doing and get acquainted. It makes for a nice friendly group when you 8 to 10 people consistently checking in and you start learning a few things about their life.

Got some yummy soup bubbling away on the stove with a ham base, added barley, tomatoes carrots, broccoli, carrots and onions so far, might think of more later. Perhaps just a bit of some type of pasta. My dog likes a spoonful over her dry dogfood, then she really gobbles it all up.

Good Morning, it is a beautiful sunny morning. Of course, it was yesterday morning when I started my 2 mile walk. Then about a mile into it the only cloud in the sky zoomed in on me and dumped rain on me for the rest of the walk. I walked the second mile much quicker than the first mile. By the end of yesterday I had a horrible headache, probably had something to do with the thunderclouds all around us. Took 600 mg of motrin and headed to bed at 9. This morning I feel better except for a stuffed nose and scratchy throat. Amazing what 8 hours of sleep will do for you. The scale was down this morning for the first time in a while. The pool opens tomorrow but the water is going to be too cold for swimming. But the kids will get in it anyways. No plans for the long weekend. DH didn't make it home, it will be Wednesday or Thursday before he makes it home. Son is in Germany for track championship so it is just my daughter and I.

Eve, Red Lobster sounds so good. I haven't been to one in years and years. Glad it didn't set you back any.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

The Red Lobster dinner didn't set me back even an ounce! WooHoo! I ordered a mixed drink, which I seldom do, Gin/Tonic and I ate one of those fabulous cheesy biscuits of theirs. I did notice not everyone is our party ate them (more willpower than I) but I ordered the Rainbow Trout (1/2 piece) Woodfire-grilled, with a baked potato, broccoli, and a Caesar salad, no croutons. Naturally I would have preferred having the low-fat sour cream, but that is one of the hazards of restaurant eating.

Then we found out we had another delivery UPS -- coming to the Yarnell address on Thurs. and we wanted to stay in Glendale until Friday -- but, you don't always get what you want!

So here we are in Yarnell again, and it's a wonderful 75 to 80F so we are not suffering in the least! Have a good day everyone!

The scale was good to me this morning, and I have a feeling today is going to be a wonderful day! So with that said, I'll just say "hello" to all you wonderful members, and hope all of you will read my blog of today on "God's Phone Call." It really gave me a lift first thing this morning, and got me off to a good start.

Busy day today, as it always is when we are in Glendale, but we are ending it with dinner at the Red Lobster with friends. What better way to end a day? And if there isn't time to make it to the gym today, I'm OK with that. Everyone needs a day off once in awhile.

Most of my days are "me" days if I really want them (or need them). One of the advantages of being retired, and also because my DH is very laid-back. He feels tired quite often, so if I do he is very understanding.

Weight stayed the same, which is good because I did not get my usual amount of walking in, but to sub for it I did a lot of yardwork, including blowing the oak leaves and the little fuzzy stuff that is coming down off the trees now.

We are waiting for a UPS delivery for a friend, then we'll be heading back to Glendale for a meeting tomorrow. Ugh! The forecast for the Phoenix area is 108F -- gym time for me. It is impossible to do anything outside in heat like that.

I know what you mean about the Internet being slow. We use some kind of wireless thing while we are at the summer house -- sometimes it is pretty good, other times it's a pain. And we have to watch how much we use, not the time but the size. Video's are OUT, SONGS are out -- anything with movement and sound takes up a lot of space, so I usually save all my emails that involve those and watch them when we are in Glendale.

I'm glad the weight went back down, but it would be nice if I even KNEW what caused the big jump up -- oh well, slows me down a little, but eventually I'll get there. Some things are best not to dwell on too long.

The bees are doing well, we can observe the hive they are in, and there is not too much activity going on as most of the bees are very busy inside the hive building up the wax combs for the queen to lay her eggs in. When we put the frames in they are just a plastic mesh that is secured within a frame. The bees have to do all the hard work. Although I found out it's not a piece of cake to put the frames together either. And I'm sorry I still haven't gotten the pictures downsized so I can use them in a blog. That's a lot of work too. But the way we use the photos on the Internet, they have to be like 300 dpi, and to put in a blog or send in an email to friends, 72 dpi is what I need. The photo of my latest acrylic painting is in the same group with the bees -- sitting there waiting.

Have a nice day, let us know how all of you are doing as you get the chance.

Just a quick note to say hi. Internet is barely working. It went Friday afternoon for about 12 hours and since it came back on it barely works. Takes about 10 minutes to load one page. Forget doing anything important and I do have some work that needs to be done that I can't get done. Hopefully, tomorrow they will get it fixed. Weight is stalled again. I think if I can make it through this week it will start going down again.

Hope everyone has a great day!

I may have been full of energy that day, but it's certainly not true every day. And I'm getting darn tired of the trend I've been since coming to Yarnell this time. We came up on Thur. and my weight was 140.2, next day it went to 140.8, not too bad -- but Sat. it went to 141.6 and OMG! today it's 142.8. What is going on? I walked over 8500 steps yesterday (2 walks) and the only bad thing I ate was a small dish of bread pudding with a couple of fresh strawberries and a spoon of Lite Cool Whip on the top. I ate about 3 oz. of my steak, and half a baked potato with lite sour cream, and mixed veggies. I doubt if I went over on calories, and have not on the other days either. I'd better figure it out quick or I'll be back in the mid-140's and mad as all get-out.

It was nice to have company for dinner as we seldom do. Just enjoyed having other conversation for a change.

Have been out for a walk earlier while it's still nice and cool. It was 68F when Amber and I started out, so we did the 1.1-mile loop. All nice and quiet on a Sunday morning.

Have a nice Sunday everyone!

Cindy, you are a yo-yo, just like Vicki -- and so am I. Mine was up even more this morning, and I think it is the soup I've been eating. Not that many calories, but the sodium is a bit high. Plus the fact that I felt so tired out I didn't go for my normal walk. No exercise definitely makes it hard to lose weight. It takes a combination of the right food + exercise to = loss.

Will be better today. I got up much earlier and I feel full of energy.

The bees won't care to much if their house doesn't match your house. Enjoy them when they get there. I live in Canada and we don't have to worry too much about the heat. It is going to get down to 36F tonight.

My weight was up as well Eve, and I know why. Have a great weekend all!

Haven't heard any more about a potential renter, so perhaps they don't do that until they have run a check on their credit, etc. But I'm optimistic, think it will happen soon. Happy I don't have a mortgage on it, so it's not costing me much to have it empty.

Last night I was tired out so went to bed early, must have needed it too, as I went right to sleep and slept about 10 or 11 hours.

It's a little after 9:00 a.m. and the bees have not arrived yet, but as we are off the beaten track, UPS usually doesn't deliver really early to us -- and it's a special delivery, seeing as how they are LIVE bees. By the time they get here, their new home will be ready for them. I wanted to paint the bee hive gray to match our home, but George says you only use white to reflect the heat.

Weight went up about a half pound today, not sure just why, but that's the way it goes, some days you know exactly why, other days you don't.

Waiting for the bee hive to arrive. Got up early and went to the rental house, as I decided to mow the lawn again - may as well having it look it's best. While I was there a couple arrived with their daughter (a teen) and as it is so hot in this area, I invited them in. They said they were to meet my agent at about 9:30 so I said I would wait with them inside until he showed up, and having been a Real Estate Agent a few years ago, I showed them the house while they were waiting. They seemed to like it.

Have not heard fromt he agent yet, so don't know if they will be renting it or not. Just have to keep my fingers crossed I guess.

Have been painting the rest of the halls -- just going to go slow and easy on this. It will take a long time as I will just work on it when we happen to be in Glendale. But it will give me some- thing to do while we are down here. Supposed to go back up to our summer home as soon as the bee hive arrives. Don't have any idea why DH timed things so close together -- my thought is it would have been smarter for the bees to arrive up there on Monday! Duh! But then, I'm just a woman! lol

There is always a lot of trauma with a car accident, even if only a fender bender. Besides it being ridiculously expensive now, it seems it doesn't take much for the car to be considered totalled. That usually happens on an older car, where it is so expensive to fix it, it isn't worthwhile. Or if the frame of the car suffers damage. I know all this because my middle child is a painter for Body/Fender Works.

I experienced a head-on collision in Sept. 2007 when I was travelling from the Phoenix to Las Vegas to see my daughter for her birthday. I had just crossed Hoover Dam and was on two-way traffic when a full-sized pickup came across the line and hit me head on. I was driving a Mitsubishi convertible, not even 2 years old yet -- and I figured my life was over. The car was totalled, but Thank God, I was not hurt, other than the damage to my face from the air bag. It was debatable for awhile if my cornea transplant would reject or not in my right eye, but with speedy attention from my Cornea Specialist, he was able to calm it down. I loved that car, and it had less than 25,000 miles on it -- but like you say, cars can be replaced, I can't.

Going out to look for frames for my latest painting today, and perhaps one for a smaller one that I'm contemplating too. Although the art itself is in Yarnell, so perhaps Friday I'll be ready for a photo of it. I use the wrap-around canvas that is on a wood frame, so I could actually use them unframed if I wished, but so far haven't tried that.

Managed to take Amber out for a nice walk last night even though the temps had been 100+ during the day. Once it got dark it was quite warm, but not unpleasant. We'll see what today brings -- and of course, I've found something else to paint in the house. This time it's the halls connecting all the rooms, plus eventually will include the Living Room also. Most of it will be a color called Warm Cappuccino (doesn't that sound nice?) and then the window walls, one North facing wall, and a half wall connecting to the hall, will be Pacific Shoreline, which is a much darker, peachy hued tan. It is very complimentary to the new granite that tops the half wall running down the hall.

So everyone have a nice day! My weight is holding, which is nice. Funny how it doesn't seem so bad to be holding when it's at a lower number! lol

I'm soooo excited with the 130's right around the corner -- and when I get there, if I can just stay there! Must step up my exercise a bit.

We are back in Glendale, so it's time for errands. I have a chest (a little 3-drawer thing) that I bought knowing it was a nice oak underneath. Someone had painted it white. So I stripped it, now I'm going to start sanding it, then will be ready for the clear varithane finish. Hope it turns out good.

Haven't quite decided on what my next painting project will be. I'd like to do a little girl's face, but don't know if I'm talented enough for that type of thing. Might try it though.

Tamsha -- it's good you found transportation. Where there's a will, there's a way! Guess it's a good saying, and seems to be true.

Renee -- soon all this will be behind you, and in the meantime, try to sneak in a bit of time for yourself. You are doing so well weight-wise!

My scale stayed the same this morning, which I'm ok with. I was sooooooo tired this morning that I really didn't care if I had a gain or loss. I would have liked to have taken a nap but had to wait on housing. They came, they fixed half of what needed fixing, everything else has to wait because they don't have the parts and they are on "order". Yea, right. Whatever. The weather has turned cool and rainy today. Kind of matched my mood. Had an evening booster club meeting this afternoon, found out I have a change of command I need to go to on Wednesday afternoon. With the end of school getting close there is so much going on.

Eve and Vicki, glad your scales where nice to you today.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Glad to see you put one over on the scale, Vicki -- let's hope it doesn't come back at you tomorrow. If you work real hard today, maybe it won't.

My scale was good to me too, lost 0.8 when I got on the scale, would have liked to see that on Sunday, but guess it is teaching me patience. Lord knows I need some lessons on that!

Amber is all bathed and groomed now, looking good, and I'm debating on what my next painting will be. Once I've settled on a subject matter the painting itself never takes me too long. I had always imagined a painting would take days and days to complete -- but that is probably true if you are working with OIL, and have to wait for it to dry. I am using ACRYLIC and it dries very quickly, so I can move on with new colors as I go along. My DH was looking at my last painting of a tulip -- it's a close up, so close it doesn't show the entire tulip. He was looking at it upsidedown, and when I asked what he thought -- he said, "I thought it was a picture of your daughter's backside." Duh! Guess it's all in the perspective!

Have a great day, everyone -- and for all of you who gained weight due to Mother's Day, get off your butt and get out there and MOVE!

An "all you can eat buffet" has to be the hardest thing for someone on a strict food plan. It will be the day that rules get bent, just a little. Two pieces should be OK for you, just watch those extra bites that slip into your mouth! For me it will be pretty easy, we're having Porterhouse steak and I always take the small (fillet mignon) portion and DH gets the large portion. I will make him his oven fries and either a baked potato for me or perhaps a sweet potato.

I was hoping the scale would drop a bit, but it's still 141. That's one of the longest stretches of time without having the scale change.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you. Both of my kids have called me, so now it's just sit back and relax time. Think I'll give Amber a bath today! Got her all trimmed yesterday, and so it's not as much hair for me to wash.

Versatility is a good thing; I feel sorry for people who feel they are not complete unless they have people surrounding them constantly. And if you are happy either way it's a plus.

Sounds like a great idea to go flying with your hubby, Vicki. Nothing more exhilarating! I do hope you log enough miles so you can take your own plane. When is it that you are going to see him? What a fun thing to be able to say you flew in your own plane to go see someone, and not only owned your own plane, but piloted it too. By the way what does DH have to say about all this weight you've lost. At the weight you are now it must be really showing up.

Quiet day for us -- we have to go back to Glendale on Tuesday about noon -- DH forgot to bring more pills with him. But we only have to stay 2 days, then we can come back.

Finally back in the mountains, but of course too late to weigh in for Thursday as I had some breakfast -- but this morning I did and it is exactly the same as last Sunday! Being it was down to 141 last Sunday, that's a number I didn't mind seeing again. WooHoo!

Had a nice chat yesterday as I was out in the yard checking on the flowers. You don't see too many people up here, so if you're not a loner you would not do well spending the summer up here. I can go either way, I have spent long stretches of time without talking to another person or seeing anyone -- more like a hermit (guess I'm happy with my own company. lol) I would be lonesome without my dog though.

I have only a few strawberry plants in my garden, should put in a few more. They are really producing quite well, so it seems to be enough for me. Tomatoes are starting to form, apples have been thinned on the tree, pears too. Everything is doing great, not many blooms on the rose garden yet, but it will come, they look good, and I've planted mauve petunias all along the front and they are going crazy so there is nice color.

I have an exercise CD I'm going to start, it's the 28 day bootcamp by Nicole. Also have my sewing machine up here, so I'm all set. Finally remembered to bring my easel up for painting so I can get started on my new painting -- it's been running around in my brain!

Take care and everyone have a great day! Friday is always good, right?

It's Friday morning and instead of running errands and doing things I need to do I'm waiting on housing to come and do their "spring work". I've been up since 530. The apartment is spotless, I've planned my exercise for next week. I've also called housing about some problems. They care coming Monday morning to fix those. No, the ones coming today can't. Need an electrician for part of the problems and someone to fix the screens in a couple of windows and doors. After they have come and gone today I have to go to the post office, commissary and exchange. There is a home track meet tomorrow and I need to pick up stuff for the concession stand plus stuff to make pb & j's for the kids. This evening I'me volunteering at a track fundraiser for 3 hours. Tomorrow will be slamming busy, track meet all day and then senior prom tomorrow night. My baby's last prom.

Vicki, glad Gerti is better, sorry about your friend being hospitalized.

Eve, I love sweet tators but they are very expensive here so I don't get them very often.

Tams, Hope things work out on the transportation.

I have told so many people at the gym that I have a heart problem that it's not funny. I have paperwork on file there. But they ignore it I guess. But that is ok, I will continue to do my own workout.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

ARGGH! Stress I tell ya! So my son's autism/learning/disability type school is closing the small school they just opened here in feburary, In my town! and is now going to have my son in the school that's 40 minutes away, FREEWAY driving at that! ARRGGHH! How am I to get him all the way out there and still get my oldest son to school AND get to work on time?! They are asking another mom, who's sitter is driving her autistic twins to school each day, if they'd be willing to take Ryan with them. I hope so! We'll see. Ryan really really needs the benefit of this school, it's made such a big difference in just a few months. GRR. Will let you guys know how this ends up.

I got up yesterday assuming we were going to go to our summer home as soon as the garbage was picked up. But DH said he was just too tired to go. I don't know why the Dr's can't come up with a reason why he is so tired, and DO something for him. But I took full advantage of the fact it was like a "free" day. Caught up on my ironing, did some of the knit- pick type of cleaning, like straightening drawers, clearing off table tops -- you know the kind.

Then this morning I noticed it was a bit after 6:00 a.m. and DH was already up, cleaning out a small pool we have. It's not really for swimming, more just for looks with a waterfall that has recirculating water, and a couple of fake ducks in it. DH gets right in the water as he vacuums the bottom of the pool, does this 2 or 3 times per year. Even at 6:00 a.m. it was over 80F.

But of course that meant we would not be where my scale was and it was Thursday a.m., so yet another day before I can check on my weight. Had a small smoothie and then chicken veggie soup when I got up here, and have been busy, so it should be a good report on the scale, but one never knows. Have a sweet potato baking in the oven, I absolutely love them but can't eat them without a little pat of butter and some salt and pepper. DH doesn't like them of course, as we never agree on what's good food-wise.

Glad to hear that Gerti is OK. Too bad about your friend having to go to hospital, but it's nice to have a friend with you giving support and companionship while you're going through it. I love to get bargains -- so I guess you must knit or crochet too, don't you?

Wanted to stop in and say hi before I head to bed. They turned on the ac a day early so the apartment is cooler. I knew when they turned it on because the ceiling started leaking like it did last year. It stopped after a while. I am to exercise as much as I want as long as I keep my heart rate below 118. I've had trainers come up to me and tell me I need to increase my intensity and cut back on the amount. I hate when they do that since they don't know my medical history. I'm not allowed to exercise at a higher intensity so to burn the same amount of calories I have to exercise longer. I always wear my heart rate monitor so I know when my heart rate is getting close to 118. There are some days that no matter what it doesn't get up there. Those are my low energy days due to my bp being too low.

Vicki, I hope Gerti feels better.

Eve, sounds like a busy day. Makes me sleepy reading about it.

Tams, I understand how you feel about medicines, I'm the same way. I've gotten lectures from the doctor on the subject.

Tricia, my son is the same way with eating. I don't know where he is putting it because he is eating out of house and home and is not gaining any weight.

Well, it is 1030 and I'm ready for bed.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Usually when my scale goes up it's because I've consumed too much sodium -- it's eay to do without even knowing it. For example, any time you eat in a restaurant the sodium content will shock you -- but of course you never know.

As far as your boy eating so much, I can remember when my brother was growing up he would eat amazing quantities of food. For example, when we would come home from school he would make himself a huge frying pan full of fried potatoes, and that was just his snack to hold him over until dinner. Bacon was the same way -- probably half a pound at a time. That was back in the "good old days" when none of us kids had to worry about our weight, we were all skinny as a rail -- and very healthy.

I normally like to weigh in every day, but I took my "good" scale up to our summer home, and meant to bring the one that's always a little "off" down here -- but I forgot it, so I've been forced to go for 4 days without weighing in. I hate it! I'm not depressed over what the scale says, but just in case I'm losing, I'm not elated either.

No more drama, Vicki -- everything has been nice and quiet. I did look up your new diet, and made note of what they advise you to eat.

The scale was up more then a pound from yesterday which seems crazy to me. I think I am going to try and weigh every 3 days for a while and see if that helps just because the scale moving up is really discouraging when I am working out so hard and eating correctly. I am hoping that weight gain is just muscle.
Hope everyone is doing well. Tricia

Hey everybody! I SURVIVED, lols! Training for makin' chemo stuff in the clean room. SCARY eh? Ai yai yai. Glad I'm just back-up 'cause that stuffs worrysome eh? My lil' guy is noisy tonight, lots of wonderful babbling. My oldest had a dr. visit for ADHD and he seems better. We'll see how the rx treats him. We had a long and difficult month discussing the pros and cons of giving him any rx at all and he needs it. Just hate to medicate him y'know? I work with meds all day long and it's like pulling teeth to get me to take anything other than motrin or my birth control! Sheesh, I don't even take my prilosec or my multivitamin like I should, I hate taking meds so much! Anyways, have a good night all!

Vicki - I like the new ID photo you've put up. Really nice! I'll check out your new plan.

Tamsha -- getting used to any new food plan is always a hassle. Good luck on the gluten-free it's always a lot of new stuff to learn. My DH is diabetic and before him I knew absolutely nothing about how they should eat.

Renee -- I'm surprised you can exercise as much as you do with your heart condition. But if it will help you lose weight, keep it up (and I'll bet it is a BIG help) wish I could do more exercise, but I just don't seem to have that kind of energy.

Yesterday was full of aggravation for me. Went over to he rental home and put the garbage out. This will be the last time for that. Then thought I would mow the lawn again while waiting for the garbage to be picked up. HOA is very strict here, and the garbage can has to go back into the garage. Lawn mower wouldn't do anything! It's electric, and I was wondering what the guys from the yard maintenance could have done to it to break it -- went into the house to cool down and have a glass of water. That's when I discovered the electricity was off. I'm on a Rental Agreement with the electric company and when a renter disconnects, it automatically goes to my name at no extra turn-on fee. So I call them. It's off. I'm mad. 30 minutes later it is all taken care of AGAIN, and the electricity is back ON. I wait and wait for the garbage pick up and finally decide to go to the store and get that out of the way. I figured when I got back it would be done and I could go home.

Had some fun shopping at Ross and Sprouts. Return to the house, see that the garbage still has NOT been picked up. A car is parked in front of my house, and I figure someone may be coming to view it. Get my keys and stuff to enter the house, it won't work. Dig out another one I have in my purse -- no luck. So I approach the car (don't know why) and as I do that, the man gets out and informs me he has just re-keyed the house. That really infuriates me as I had specified NO-KEYING as I had just had it done myself. He gets on the phone with his boss and then hands me the phone, and they agree to key it back the way it was. Poor guy, it wasn't his fault. It was the fault of the Management Co. I had just signed with.

The thing that turned out good was that I was chatting with the guy as he was working and was telling him how I could not get my garage remotes to reset to new codes (for the garage door). When he was done with the re-keying he went in and reset the codes for me. I will have to admit, men are usually much better at this type of thing than most women.

Later in the day, I was feeling much better and decided to go over and repaint the spare bath, it was a color that even I didn't like, so it is now a nice neutral Swiss Coffee -- just another name for white. lol I'll admit it does look nicer. Now if I can find someone who won't mind having one of the kids in a "red" room, my home should get rented.

Had a super busy day again yesterday including working, kids baseball games and softball practice by the time we get home at night it's my sons bedtime but I still have to feed him dinner because he is so hungry again. He is not a big kid at all but he sure can eat. Before his game yesterday I made him a chicken quesadilla (homemade so it wasn't small), carrots, celery with peanut butter and a fruit roll-up thing, he took two fruit roll-ups to his game and a pop tart. I don't know if he is giving his food away at the game or what but after he got home he at 3 burritos and a yogurt. I could not believe it like I said he is not a big boy at all so I don't know where he is putting all this food or how I'll be able to afford to feed him if he keeps this eating pattern up. He has played sports for many years now and I don't remember him ever eating like this before. It seems so crazy to me.

Hope everyone has a great day. Tricia

Eve, I hate getting sick to my stomach. I'm glad you are feeling better now. Once they turn the ac on for the building I can control it in the apartment.

Tams, I'm glad your son is eating some gluten-free foods.

I've had a good day with eating and exercise. I've probably overdone the exercise today and will feel it in the morning.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Great news! My son is eating the gluten-free oatmeal!! AND I found a couple of chips that are certified gluten-free that he WILL eat!! I'm so excited! My DH says it's too early (2 full days) to be so excited that this diet will help him but I have my hope up! His diapers (sorry gross!) are less like diarrhea then they've ever been. More like a 'normal' one and with his issues, that's great! And I also think he's been a bit clearer and is making more purpose-full sounds/word attempts. He's really actually TRYING to talk to me! He's also a bit more active. It's darn hard to go gluten free adn I will have to make up his meals alot more by scratch but hey, it's so worth it if it works to bring my baby back! I've started Ryan on a food diary to see if this will help the dr's with what'll happen at the apt on June 28th to get his diagnosis. He may just have a mild case of autism. He's got almost no speech, certainly no spontaneous speech unless you count the one time yesterday he said 'up' to me and held out his arms. (I had to fight not to cry) But thankfully I have very lucky that he throws such mild and few and far between tantrums that my older boy throws more of em! 3 tantrums in a week? For a 3 yr old? And most concerning not wanting to try new foods? Ha! All parents should be so lucky! 'Course, these are the tantrums I see, not the ones DH or the school deals with. Well, sorry so much talking, just so excited!! Wish us luck on this journey!

Happy Sunday everyone! It made my day when I got up and stepped on the scale to see a 141 facing me. WooHoo! That's my lowest so far! So I finally made it past that slump of mine and feel soooo good about it.

Of course yesterday evening gave me a little push (not one that I wanted) bug I had made myself a big salad about 5:30 with strawberries, fresh tomatoes, feta, etc. and when I had eaten that I told DH we needed to go for a walk. He grudgingly agreed with me. Amber was so excited. But I had this nagging feeling that I needed to go to the bathroom -- but I couldn't so we went on our walk. Got to the top of the little hill as we leave our place and I started to have severe stomach cramps. I never get those unless I'm going to throw up. We went home and I spent the next hour or so in the bathroom. Diarrhea and vomiting. So there went my salad. I didn't feel right all evening. Helped the scale but I didn't like feeling that way.

New day now though -- going back to Glendale as DH has a meeting Monday night. I will go to the rental house one more time to get my ladder and put out the garbage. After that it's up to the Management Company.

Renee -- hope it clears up so you have a bit of great weather for a change. And I hope your A/C is working if it's hot. How stupid to turn on the A/C on a certain date -- they should go by the weather. So if it happens to be cold does it go on anyway? Do you have any control?

Vicki -- hope you get your back feeling better by having an easy day today!

Eve, it is just the time of year for me. I was looking at the calendar for this month and most of the days are highlighted. Which means I have something going on most days, some days multiple things. I may pull my hair out by the time it is over with. Today the weather can't seem to make up it's mind, they are calling for thunderstorms before the day is over. If we get them I hope they are good ones. Going to get some work done and then relax.

Have a great day!

Everyone is much busier than me, and that's just how I want it. Got up at 9:30 this morning, and quickly made everything neat and tidy as the appraiser is coming this morning. DH has finally decided to refinance and take advantage of some of the lower rates. That and a 15 yr. loan instead of a 30-year, which we could never live long enough to pay off.

Appraiser arrived pretty much on time, and is now browsing around outside, doing whatever it is that they do. I'm at my computer drinking a smoothie.

Hope everyone's week-end goes great!

Thats so funny I like the old fashion oatmeal better than the packets but I'm 51 not like a 3 year old lol. Of course the best way to get them to taste like the packets is a lot of sugar :( but maybe if you put a little fruit spread and some fruit in it maybe he'd like it.

Trying to clean the house before we leave to do some running around and than off to my grandson birthday.

Everyone have a great day!

Wow what a busy day! I too have been busy and have soo much housework to catch up on! Oh and I got Ryan my 3 Year old....to try something NEW!!! emoticon. Not super different than foods he's eaten before but you have to see how rare it is for him to eat new foods! And !! It's gluten free! I really do wonder if it's the gluten in his diet that makes it so hard for us to get any real significant, and steady improvement in his speech. Oh, and he definitely signaled 'NO' for when I tried to get him to eat the gluten-free oatmeal. Does anyone know how much of what to get homemade oatmeal to taste like Quaker Oats packets? They have trace amounts but I can't seem to flavor it right to get him to eat it! Frustrating! Well, see you guys later!

It has been a busy couple of days. Thursday woke to no internet, it really sucks when that is how we track parents organize things. And it is how I talk with my dh when he is away. Called telecom, it was out all over base, they were working on it. Friday had to be up early to get son to school so they could head out to a track meet. The coach told them 530 with the bus pulling out at 6. The coach arrived at 610 and then a parent yelled at him for 10 minutes, then he had to have a security brief. By then the drivers where tired of waiting so they walked to the coffee bar for espressos. It was almost 7 before they left. The drivers were new, got lost so instead of arriving at 3 it was after 7 before they got there. Then they were at the meet today when it started storming, meet was cancelled, kids were soaked. Not a good weekend for them. I'm feeding my daughter's boyfriend and his brother tonight. Their father is in the hospital and will be medivac out Monday. I cleaned out this morning, have ribs in the crockpot and am trying to get caught up on spark. I would go for a walk but am expecting a call plus it looks like we could get a storm at any minute. don't want to get caught in it.

Have a great day!

My way of looking at it is "why clean the house for a 5-year olds birthday party?" It will get dirty just from the party. Wait until it's over, then clean it. Kids won't notice anyway.

Back is starting to feel a little better. I know it is stupid to let myself get that tired, but I also know I will probably do it again one of these days. It's something I've done all my life, and I see my daughter is following in my footsteps.

Once you are retired Fridays are just another day. I can't say if I have a favorite day unless it would be the week-ends as the electricity is cheaper then. It's some special program you can sign up for with your electric company.

Haven't been on here in a little while. I have been so busy with kids playing sports, working and going to school but the doc put me a new med about two weeks ago and I think I'm starting to feel better which is great! The scale is slowly moving down and that makes me happy I just wish it would move faster! I did put on two different pairs of pants and was pleasantly surprise that they fit. I have to be gaining muscle but I don't see it. Oh well. Hope everyone is doing great!

Catching up on my rest while in the mountains. Hoping to finally have my back quit hurting, as right now I don't feel like I can even stand up straight it hurts so bad. It is getting better, and today I took Amber walking for the long loop, which is just over 1 mile.

DH is helping out a friend who is just getting started as a bee keeper (George did that years and years ago). It sounds like a nice hobby, and a side benefit is that you have all the honey you can eat. Although I don't use a great deal of honey.

Weather has been beautiful up here. Sorry that the lilacs have bloomed and that season is over. It is so nice to have them in the house as the smell is wonderful. There are still lots of iris in bloom, and they are nice to pick also.

It's tough to lose it. I keep finding myself eating stuff that I know is bad for me. I know it's stress. We have my little 3yr olds's autism assesment appointment finally to get an official diagnosis this June on the 28th. It'll be a 3 hour drive to just get to the dr's! Last night he got sooo upset, trying to tell me something but he has NO communication, no speach, won't or can't sign (we've been trying to be consistent in signing little stuff to him) but it all takes time. So hard though! Last night...I had a twinkie! And at lunch...ice cream! Arrgghh. I know better but sometimes it all gets to me. I'm not a pill popper or anyone who can stand being 'alterred' so my addiction/stress reliever is food. I must confess this weekend there were bearclaws, the really GOOD ones from the best bakery. I have been staying away from the starbucks though! Hard to do! emoticon
Anyways, gotta go 'soy milk' my boy with a bottle (he can't let go of the playtex liner-bottle either) adn all that.

It's been a much longer time since I was 14, since I'm 25 years older than you, Renee. lol It's easy for me to keep track of that as my daughter, Renee, is your age too. Getting to the point where I don't want to think about age any more -- it takes me forever to get things done, and then I'm sore and tired. Guess I'm in the "Golden Years." That's because you have to HIRE people to do everything, so it's GOLD alright.

Signing up withthe management company today! Hooray! Then I can go to Yarnell for the summer, relax and forget that doggone rental (except for receiving my check each month as they send it). Plan on heading up there tomorrow, in fact, and will take my small TV along, as it has a builtin player for VHS as well as DVD. Now to pick out a couple good exercise tapes.

I happened to notice something strange -- when I don't sleep well, I dont seem to lose as much weight overnight as when I sleep good. And I did read somewhere that you burn more calories when you are sleeping than when you are watching TV. I figured it was because your body is busy digesting your food and stuff. Interesting to think about though, so it's better to take a nap and sleep than to watch TV. Hmmm!

Time to go look for those May flowers -- although we didn't have much in the way of April showers here.

It is an Italian holiday again.

I will find out when my surgery is when I see the surgeon this summer. I'm really hoping I don't need to have it yet. I think my doctor here is paranoid. It is stable, no change in 6 years, so I don't understand his rush to get me to a surgeon. But I promised him I would see one this summer.

It is a beautiful first day of May. The sun is shining and it is warm. The wind has picked up in the last hour but I don't mind since I have the windows open so maybe the apartment will cool down some.

Tamsha, it has been a real long time since I was 14.

Hope everyone has a great day!

In Hawai'i, Where I grew up, May day is the first day of may that's celebrated by the giving of lei's. At my high school there'd be a big ceremony in the gym (it doubled as a stage too) and there'd be a king and queen and be all dressed up and they'd walk in a slow measured steps between a row of honor guards to the 'throne'. Fake giant tiki posts and giant coconut leaves and palm leaves to 'fan' them with. lols! It was awesome but kinda boring too. I was quite young and the music was 'old', hehe. And the hula dancing was great along with the local band with their ukuleilei's. I was never a good hand with em. And I couldn't hold a bood 'ipu' beat to save me for hula anymore. Too long ago, lols! Since I'm 33 last month, it's been a while since I was 14 yrs old! emoticon

emoticonMay 1 - come chat with me

The tradition of May Day begins with a basket or
container brimming with flowers and small gifts.
The May Day basket is quietly and secretly placed on the
doorstep of a neighbor or loved one, demonstrating the
gift of giving without receiving.

The basket giver would ring the bell and run away.
The person receiving the basket would try to
catch the fleeing giver.
If they caught the person, a kiss was to be exchanged.

The moon shines bright,
and the stars give light,
A little before it is day;
So God bless you all,
both great and small,
And send you a joyful May!
