Lynette, if by surgery for your "girlie-parts" you are referring to a hysterectomy, it depends on the type you have as to how long you will be unable to exercise. Slow to medium walking will be OK almost immediately -- no vacuuming or sweeping -- no sex for 6 weeks. Just like having a baby! lol I had mine vaginal, back in about 1980 in Japan, and it was a snap to heal up from that. The only snafu was that the surgeon nicked an artery during the procedure, and I ended up losing about 2 liters of blood. The really bad thing about that was they had no B+ blood on the Navy Base. The good thing is that B+ blood is common in Japan, so we got a pint of Japanese blood for me. Hmmm, does that make me part Japanese? lol

Vicki -- you are doing quite good now. Do you attribute it to the Z suit or to a better diet? I'm inclined to think maybe it's a combination of both. But whatever the reason, it's working and it would be exciting to get into those 170's and especially to "stay" there.

DH has another doctor appointment this afternoon -- sometimes it seems like those are the only appointments we ever have. Although the church just named me to be on the committee of ladies who decide what the program will be for our monthly agenda when the Ladies get together -- so that's a good sign. They must like me or they wouldn't want me in the Group.

Lynette, I hear you...Thank goodness for March. I've been pretty regular on here and yet, bam March is here and I'm still looking for December. Crazy!

So weird how you guys seem to have the same heart issues. Hope it's "fixable". I remember what it was like to have the WPW (rapid heartbeat) even today and I am ever so thankful for modern science. I remember passing out at the drop of a hat because someone opened the door to let the cold in!! (Heart rate would go from 75 to 300)

Well, I'm still fighting this cold. I thought yesterday it was going away but woke up drained and with a cough today. Good gravy!!

Went for a walk with hubby yesterday and hoping to get another one in today.

Asked oldest for her W2s so we can do her tax form. She started telling me how she needed to go back to HR and get it fixed because they were pulling out 2 dependents and she wasn't paying on it. I told her she couldn't "fix" last years mistake and we had to file the tax form, which of course she persist to argue that she wasn't paying and that she couldn't afford to pay. I tried telling her she doesn't even KNOW if she has to pay when she continued on and I was so tired and grumpy I simply snapped at her. I just wish she'd listen to me once in her 21 years. Seriously I've done taxes almost 30 years...she has done not even one.

Good morning
Hope everyone had a good night's sleep and is looking fwd to a great day. Here, it's a beautiful sunny day, above 0 degreesC soon if not already, and we have a forecast that says it may hit double digits on Fri or Sat so that would be lovely: sloppy but warm....
Date night last night so I didn't get in all my steps and the scale is up. Sigh. I would like to get into the 130's but that seems to be a leap for my bod!
V, lovely new profile pic. I keep intending to get more pics loaded but don't have the skills.
So sorry to hear about all the heart issues. I'm happy that answers finally emerged about my health issues and heart doesn't seem to be a concern. I do need to watch my bad cholestrol. Tips?
I am on my way to the doc this aft for the conference about (as R would say: my "girly-parts") surgery; I'm grateful that it should not be very serious, I'm just unhappy that it will keep me from exercising for about 3 weeks and lord knows, I need my activity to attempt to off-set my over-eating.
I didn't make progress on my weight in Feb but I will persevere. Here's to March!

I didn't really know exactly what was wrong with my heart, Renee -- but it's evidently similar to your problem. Although I doubt if mine is as serious as yours, even though I am older. When I went in last time the cardiologist told me the aortic value had a narrowed opening, probably from a build-up of calcium; plus it also was leaking. The company I am insured with had not sent over the previous echo, so he had nothing to compare to. I need to get them to send it over.

Perfect timing on the birthday cake, huh? Then light candles on the cake as the electricity was out. lol

Doctor's appt went ok. He said he could her my aortic leaking so he sent me for another echo. Had that done after I left his office. I will hear from him if there is a change. He told me he would like for me to get at least 15000 steps a day and for me to lose weight. Got a lot of rain yesterday and it was very windy. Yesterday was my dh's birthday. I got home much later than planned - after 5. I mixed up a cake and put it in the oven. Then the electricity went out just as it came out of the oven. Was out until 3 am.

I'm really tired and am heading to bed. Just wanted to update on the doctor.

Have a great evening.

Being I went to the gym yesterday my scale was happy with me! Darn, I know it's necessary for me, otherwise no weight loss -- sure wish I had more enthusiasm for it. It's not like I hate it while I'm doing it either -- it's just the getting started part. (sigh)

Looks like nice weather here again today, and Amber needs her walk. New garage door is all installed and looks nice. We probably will have to paint it, but it looks quite nice right now, but you know how those HOA rules are.

Had a little conference with the "higher ups" at Church last night, they want hubby and I to take care of our Bulletin Board (and it needs sprucing up too) AND they want me to be a part of the Relief Society that decides what we'll do for the monthly meeting. That should get me better acquainted with several ladies (with me being new). And it will give me something to do.

Still kind of sleepy - I heard the cat meowing outside our bedroom door very early, then when Amber (the dog) got up, she pushed on the door and it opened. (another sigh) So I figured I may as well get up and feed them. They are perfectly happy now.

Just notices Corrina's input, and yes, we were safe in this part of AZ -- now our summer home definitely got snow, just like Prescott and Flagstaff. About a week ago when that storm went through our area we did get a light dusting of snow as low as Scottsdale -- we didn't actually see any here in Glendale, but my daughter phoned from Tuscon where her and BF was attending a medical seminar and there was snow there!! She was shocked because in Las Vegas where she has lived the last several years there is never any snow either.

I can relate with your girls too, Corrina, as I am the same. First I get grouchy from lack of sleep, then if I don't get to go to bed soon, I just fall asleep in the middle of whatever.

Vicki, she didn't get sick from the drink. She was sick because of lack of sleep. My girls become quite ill if they don't get a full night's sleep. It's always been that way. LOL

No snow here guys. I was joking with hubby that it looked like all of the US was being hit by a storm EXCEPT for sunny 70 degree Cali. Maybe Eve is safe over there in AZ too.

Got my homework done, going to grocery shop but first a little work out.....if my sinuses let me :o)

we got a beautiful load of snow last night but that is easy for me to say, as I don't have to go out in it! Actually my Beck mtng is this aft so I will have to get there somehow.
I find that I eat when I am home (and nobody is watching!) Vicki, maybe you can get your card-playing friends on board with eating healthy? You can support each other. I certainly agree with Eve, about drinking---I would much rather eat my calories than drink them!
Eve, too bad about that door.
Hi To Renee and Corinna and anyone else who stops by this thread---have a great day!

Vicki I didn't know you were having knee problems. What is sopping? It must be something pretty serious if it will lay you up for 4-6 weeks. There is never a good time to get sick, the same way there is never a good time for surgery. But to my way of thinking, if I had to have surgery and lived where it snows -- I'd do it in the winter. Then you'll be back to normal by the time the weather is good again. You know when you play cards tonight, the pork sandwich isn't so bad -- just skip the fries. Give them to the gals sitting around you so you aren't tempted by them. And forget the beer too! Or order Beck's Light, only 64 calories!!

I "hate" getting up early, but this morning we knew the guy from Sears would be here soon to replace the garage door ---- soooooo! Sunday, DH woke up and couldn't talk, very bad sore throat, so he decided to skip church and went to the After-Hours Clinic. They loaded him up with penicillin and cough med's. He took some. Then when I went to church, he decided to drive to Walmart for something, when he came home he thought he had his SUV in park, but it was in DRIVE and he hit the garage door. It wouldn't open when I came home from church.
He admitted to me that HE had broken it -- Sears came out, and it will have to be replaced, to the tune of just under $1500!!! I told him he never should have been driving while on the medication! Of course he agrees -- NOW!

Let's see how the rest of the week goes.

back to the real world on Mondays! I made lots of progress on the to-do list, went to a couple of medical appts, a very productive day.
I empathize with those of you facing job changes. When I lost my job, I had to readjust my plans, my life. But it has worked out well actually. I enjoy the fact that I have a lot less stress.
We are having a snow fall tonight but the forecast is good. A high of 10 (Celcius) is forecast for Friday when I know I have to be out and about.
Hope you all have a great wk.

Goodness, Renee, I hope your husband's pay doesn't get cut 20% -- why can't Obama just lay off on a couple of his trips? Did you hear that their last little "vacation" in Hawaii cost the taxpayers $20,000,000? How can "anything" cost that much?

Got a call from my cardiologist (his receptionist actually) and they want another test scheduled. Can't remember the name of the test, but it will be the end of March. She said, "Be here at 7:00." I said "in the evening?" She answered -- no, were're not open at
7:00 in the evening. So I told her I'm not UP at 7:00 a.m. lol We compromised on 8:00.

It did warm up considerably from yesterday. In fact I was going for a walk right after 4:00 and had to remove my jacket it was so hot.

Still tired and my beet/hands are really swollen. I use spark or Lose it to track my calories. Lose has a been scanner than spark. And it is a free app that I have on my IPOD. Scale is way up because of the swelling. I have spent the day in the potty so hopefully, the scale will be back down tomorrow. I see my surgeon tomorrow and it is my dh's birthday. I'm hoping the weather will be ok. I hate driving I495 in the rain and they are calling for sleet before noon. My appoint is at 1230. Watching what congress does closely because if they don't get the budget passed they are going to start furloughing the GS workers which my dh is. Our pay will be cut by 20%. That is a lot when you live in this area. I'm just thankful that I got our taxes filed and we will have our refund before the 1st.

I will post tomorrow after my appointment to let you know how it went.

Have a wonderful day!

Vicki, Eve, I have heard a lot of good things about my fitness pal. Both my "besties" use it so I'm thinking of trying it. I have the spark ap and LOVE the "scan barcode" feature but yeah, it is time consuming. Eve. I love the idea of mentally asking the question of "is this worth it". I think that's the hardest part is remembering accountability. I just look and wait, what? a whole bag of chips are in my belly? how'd that happen??

Glad to hear kitty is doing better and is no longer hissy. :p

Lynette, I'm so glad you had a good time with the daughters. I just love spending as much time with my girls as I can

Well, we took my daughter and her two friends to the casino at midnight for her very first legal drink. I chose the casino, Eve, as they tend to card more for the gambling then the drinks :p Can't have a minor winning their money you know!! LOL

And sure enough, they looked at her ID and said "one more minute girl, start counting...." so we did. LOL She wasn't feeling well so she never finished the thing, however she DID win $70 and was thrilled.

I got up the next morning and drove to Sacramento. I don't normally drive the freeway so was an experience! I did well, I think as I didn't seem to scare the girls too much. Power took first again in all the competitions. They are undefeated thus far :o)

And of course, after that with the sinus cold on top of things I officially lost my voice for the last two days. I'm sure my family is appreciating the silence.

Have a great Monday!!!

Eve I don't mind writing in down on paper but to have to come and find all the foods I ate to report takes so much time but now that I have my ipod and I do it on my fitness pal don't take as long Sparks is longer and it is not free on my ipod so that is why I do my fitness pal but counting is good I guess my Aunt did it and lost 15 - 20 pounds just sticking to her cals so if she can do it so can I

We went to my nephew's Basketball game he is a new teacher in West Point "St Paul" School and they had their last game yesterday in Seward tournament and they WON that was so great they said first time so my my Nephew did good but now I have no voice for yelling so much - Did my workout with Z suit before we left then we came home watched TV - told hubby I forgot to add the popcorn he said what little you ate won't hurt - told him it is cals then he wonders why I get up set with him he don't understand EVERY little bit counts - but I did have a loss for the week not as low as Wed but that is ok it was a loss now to keep it going that way - only 5 days left of Feb how is everyone doing on their Feb goals??

Vicki -- with me, when I'm actually counting calories, I react the opposite of you. When I get hungry for something -- mentally I see my tracking board and think , hmmmm, I had 295 cal for breakfast, so I can afford to eat this cookie mid-morning. I'm good with numbers, so if I write it down on not, it's kind of stuck in my mind. Most of the time, rather than have to "count" it -- I just don't eat it. For me, that's the benefit of keeping track. It's like a strict little conscience in my head.

Whatever I'm doing, I guess it's OK as the scale went down another .4 this morning, so it makes my Sunday weigh-in look soooooo much better than last Sunday = 142 to 139.4
My weeks haven't been going like that, and for me to lose that much, even with my lazy days means I definitely wasn't cheating with my food. Lots of times I stop and think to myself "is it worth the calories to eat this cookie -- bagel -- piece of candy -- whatever?" And if the answer to myself is YES -- I eat it. Most of the time the answer is NO!

On Sunday (like today) I don't have to worry about snacking in the afternoon -- or taking a nap either. Right now our services are from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. I hate sitting still for 3 whole hours -- but I guess if I weren't sitting still, I'd be napping for part of that time.

Have a good Sunday everyone!

Eve glad Luci is home and getting alone fine - hope you took Amber for her walk

Lynette glad you had a nice time with Daughter

Very upset with myself need to just keep counting cals even if I hate doing it so easy to put things in my mouth and say will count it later but never do - so starting today even if I hate it got to count everything even my drinks and back to exercising for a hour not just 30 min and with the Z suit make my workouts count that is why I got that thing - off to church then my workout so everyone have a great Sunday

We'd ALL rather eat the yummy stuff. That's America's biggest problem in respect to being overweight -- sure, Canada too! Just thinking of you, Lynette. lol

Didn't get in too much exercise so far today, but Amber is waiting for her nice long walk, and I know I "have" to do it today. Can't goof off two days in a row or you're really asking for trouble.

didn't get in my steps while N was here so today I have to do that. We did eat healthy when she was here tho and I need to do the same on my own. But I'd rather eat all the yummy stuff, to be honest!

Luci acts like nothing has changed -- and glancing down at her feet I can't even see what the doctor did. I guess I was expecting to see bloody stubs (stupid and gruesome) but evidently where he had to make a cut, he also stitched it up. She is a tiny bit careful walking on the tile but she still jumps up on the bed, on chairs -- so I guess it isn't hurting her. When we let her out of her box, she immediately went under the bed in the spare bedroom, and when I lifted up the edge of the comforter to peek under, she "HISSED" at me. I kind of took that to mean "Just leave me the hell alone!" -- so I did. Later I layed down on the bed, and she came up by me and layed down too. In fact she seems a bit more cuddly now than before.

I was lazy yesterday, so today I definitely have to get to the gym. The scale went down this morning, but if I don't get in some real exercise it will shoot right back up.

Have a good day everyone!

Corrina -- I can remember my first "legal" drink. It was very disappointing to me because no one asked to see my ID all evening!

Today in an hour we can go pick up Luci -- I hope some of the pain meds have not worn off as yet, I hate to see anyone or anything in pain. I'll be especially good to her for a few days. It was funny, I had put her 2 little scoops of food in her dish and set it up on the filing cabinet, so I could put it down before we left to go get her. In the meantime DH comes into the office and puts it down on the floor in the spot where we always put it -- and Amber comes along and eats it!!!! I say to my DH -- you put the cat's food on the floor, didn't you? And now Amber has eaten it. Then I go to Amber and say, "Did you eat the cat's food?" She wags her tail....

Have a slight headache and my vision is somewhat impaired -- hope I don't start getting those weird headaches again. Guess it's like my daughter once said "why is it always something weird that's wrong with you?"

busy with my friend, N visiting here. She is on a weight -loss and health program with a personal trainer/coach and has lost over 40 pounds so she is very motivating for me. She eats frequently with a heavy emphasis on protein. Want to try to get her on SparkPeople too but she is very busy, re-inventing her life including being back at school.
TTYL!

well, the sinus cold has hit full force on me here. I've been banned to the couch because hubby says I snore so loudly. emoticon

Yesterday was district band day for the girls. I helped out by handing out the brochures and trying to sell dinner dance tickets. Hubby made all the hotdogs and we sold them. It's a lot of work fundraising for schools!!! Especially when we know everyone is as tight as we are....

Oldest is expecting a guest from Chicago today..It's the biggest highlight of her 21st birthday only...well, you guys have seen the weather report right? I'm hoping for a miracle for her. She will drive him here from the San Fran airport and we'll make her hubby's special ribs and potatoes (I'm making me a butternut/tofu stew) and then we are going to take her to the casino at midnight for her first slot & legal drink. LOL After that, I HAVE to come home as I have to be in Sac for another cheer competition in the morning.

I don't know WHAT hubby and I are going to do when all this craziness leaves the house for college and there's only the pups to tend to. Well, and him. He's as needy as the three girls combined. So there's that....

LOL

Have a great day everyone. Stay safe. Stay warm.

Eve Lucy will be fine they put them to sleep and give them pain med just like us she may not like you for a few days but she will get over it - sorry you had a gain but we all have those bad days you will get back on track soon and the gym that is why I don't pay for it for I never go when I should so hope you guys use it more then not - glad your getting your walks in with Amber I know she likes it and today is walk your dog day emoticon

Renee sorry your not feeling well hope your better soon hope your son won't get as much snow as we did think we got a foot of it and hope all you get is rain and no snow I will take rain anytime

Got a late start here today we got about a foot of snow so went out to shovel and because I had my Z suit on and all ready wrapped up to shovel decided to get my walk in so shoveled for 35min then walked 35min then remembered I didn't weight in so did that and really like what it said now to get it to stay that way and maybe lose a few more before Monday weigh in would be great then I will be at my Feb goal so got to be good - Everyone one stay safe if you got bad weather and if you have nice weather get out there and WALK

Renee no wonder you have penguins on for your ID now -- you must feel
like you're living at the North Pole. Yikes!

Dropped Luci off -- Amber thinks she's the only pet again. That will only last until tomorrow.

Had a doctor appt. but managed to get in a nice walk with Amber. We both needed it.

Not much is going on here. I exercised and then was too tired to do anything else. I'm catching a cold and that really bites. It has been in the 30's here and windy but at least it has been sunny. But tomorrow it is suppose to be a snowy/sleet mix. But then it is going to turn to rain. My son on the other hand is suppose to get a lot of snow.

Eve, the cat will be fine. My scale was up also.

Vicki, hope you aren't getting all of that snow I'm seeing out that way.

Hope everyone has a great evening!

I just vegitated yesterday, and the scale went up a whole pound! Doesn't seem fair -- yes, I could have driven to the gym being it was raining, but I didn't. And this morning we had to get up extra early to take Luci to the Vet. DH wants her front feet declawed. I feel so sorry for her but the Vet says she will be fine -- and another friend told me both of her cats are declawed, and they do fine. I had one heck of a time getting her into her box that we transport her in. So now she probably hates me too! And she meowed the entire way to the Vet. We pick her up at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow. Amber will go with us and get her required shots while we're there.

Well, today is much nicer than the cold rain we had yesterday -- still a bit cool out, but the sun is out, so that's good. My daughter phoned me yesterday from Tucson and said, "What's with this weather? I was out by the pool yesterday and today there is snow on the ground." It can be pretty changeable in the dessert.

I'll check to see what everyone has been up to later on today, and maybe add more.

Corinna your one busy lady enjoy the time with your daughter and her friend but be good on the food intake

Eve we did have lunch but I brought mine for on the military diet you can't cheat which is a good thing and I have added up the cals your on a 1,200 - 1,500 cal plan just no snacks and that is a good thing think is just to get you back on track and that is what I needed and I like when they tell you what you have to eat and Ice Cream is for dinner and I like that - your scale and my scale must be on the same wave link for mine goes up and down also and then I think like you shouldn't weigh each day but that will never happen unless I have no scale around so we do what we have to do so just keep trying kido

NO Snow here yet but the school canceled last night how dumb - Got our nails and toes done feels so good and got shopping done also but no exercise yesterday first time in a long time I just said don't feel like it so will double up today - as for the Z suit if you guys are interested in getting them I can get you a 10% off by using this code VLUEBBE so let me know if you decide to try - Son (Samuel) wants to chat with me today on skype so better go get my exercise done before that so I can chat with him as long as he wants

Damn scale! Up 0.6 down 0.4 up 0.4 what is wrong with it (or with me?) -- jiggle, jiggle! The days I think I should be down it goes up, then when I expect a nudge up it goes down! Like today -- totally unexpected. Sometimes I think "maybe" it would be better not to weigh in each and every day. But then I'd spend my entire day wondering.

Raining here today, but not too much on our agenda anyway. Tomorrow will be a busy day, and Friday too. All you can do is take one day at a time.

Enjoy the mani and pedi with your Aunt -- and the shopping too! No lunch? Come on, you know that's part of the plan! Yes, it's you and Renee neck and neck, and me and Lynette. lol

I think the trips and the weather and my bad eating habits have all caught up to me with a vengence. I have a head cold from heck. My sinuses hurt, my throat hurts, heck...even my teeth up into my ears hurt.

But, will be doing homework today, maybe go for a walk and let this cool crisp air that has come for a visit clear the sinus' a bit. Gots to do lots of housework. My daughter and her friend are coming down Friday to celebrate her 21st bday. We are going to take her to a casino and then I'll sleep for about 3 hours to head to Sac for another Cheer convention.

Have a district wide band concert tomorrow night. I was supposed to help sell hotdogs, but I think I'll stay away from the food and help set up chairs instead. LOL Don't need to share what I've got.

That's it for now. You are right Vicki...pretty quiet around here.

Lynette glad the scale was down at the DR glad your getting all your steps in and better food choices keep up the good work

Renee you and I both have been at a stand still and about the same weight we both will find our plan and then boy look out

Eve love the new profile picture and sometimes the jump start diet plans don't work but gets me thinking of all the bad stuff I put in my mouth and this way I know if I stick to this I can do anything I put my mind too - glad you got a good walk in with Amber bet she loved it

the Z suit here is the web sight to check out - zaggora.com/


Hell day is over and played poker last night I won the whole game last night to bad all my points won't matter but was fun to take out everyone - today going to go get our nails and toes done with my Aunt Sally and a little shopping then home and put my Z suit on and walk on the treadmill way to cold outside and the military diet is working so far now to keep it going

I know what you mean about sometimes just not wanting to talk and be on line, Renee -- me too! I just feel so disgusted with myself when I'm gaining or not moving. It's starting to improve just a little -- and of course I know it's my own actions which will determine which way it's going to go. It's not like I've got someone to blame!

Vicki, is that Z suit made out of some type of material that holds in the heat? I suppose the overall purpose then is to make you sweat -- which is good if you are retaining water. But it probably makes you thirsty. I've never been too big on going on a special diet to "jump start" my weight loss. I used to believe that things like that worked, but since being on SP I have come to the conclusion that you are better off just cutting down on fattening foods, so just basically fat and sugar -- and eat protein, veggies, simple good food and track it so you do not go overboard. It's sometimes irritating that the weight doesn't come off a bit faster, but that's life, and the only way to get the best of this situation is to stay consistent with it.

Lots of errands to run this morning, most involved with selling the place in Sun City West that I was using as a rental. Found a couple of things on the final balance sheet showing debits and credits to buyer and seller. Gads, if you didn't look these things over they could easily slide $1,000 to $2,000 out of your pocket right before your eyes. It helps a little that I used to be a Realtor myself, so at least it was all familiar. Probably will have my money by Thursday, then no more income -- but no more expenses to pay on the place either. That particular place just wasn't worth the problems that came with it.

And in the afternoon just before dark I took Amber for an extra long walk, so I go in a fair amount of steps today -- nowhere near the 10,000, but good for me! lol

Sorry I haven't been around, I've been tired and haven't felt like being online. Not much going on, just tired. The weather can't seem to make it's mind up. It is cold, wet and windy today. Weight is at a stand still. I know it will restart again I just have to be patient. Went grocery shopping Sunday and stocked up on healthy food so I'm go to go.

Have a great day!

Hi, I'm here! Logging lots of steps, trying to make good food choices and getting things done around the house after several days with R. We enjoy our time together but it is seldom very productive and always involves too much food and not the best food, at that. Today is my weekly Beck meeting and that is always motivating.
I was interested in the news about the cheerleading -- that was my thing when I was a teenager, many, many years ago when it was not synonymous with gymnastics! I too was a "picked last" kid.
Will look into the Z suit but if it is a sweatsuit that doesn't achieve actual loss and I do want my numbers to decrease for real. I was happy that when I went to the doc my weight was down 5 pounds from the year before.
Have a great day, all!

wow a lot going on since i was last here. JUST drove back from Visalia (actually hubby drove) It's a very cute little town. I was surprised from hwy 99 I was thinking "there's nothing here" then, BAM the little town of cuteness. LOL

Daughter's team took first in all divisions but one. and they took Grand Champions. I will be honest. It feels nice to be a part of something good when my whole life I was the one "picked last" LOL

will be back this week to catch up with you.

You and I both need a miracle of some type, Vicki. Maybe zaggora is it???!!!

DH had gone to Yarnell to put some type of insulating vents on our home there. He did about half on Friday, thought he would finish it Saturday morning. But he didn't sleep well at all, and it was 42F -- much too cold for his liking. So he did the area of the house that was most likely to freeze, then headed back to our home in Glendale. We were supposed to attend the 80th Birthday Party of a sort-of relative.

Well, when we got there, we said our "hello's and looked at all the photo's" and then DH said he didn't want to stay for the meal. So we skipped out un-noticed (I hope) and went to find some dinner for ourselves. He wanted Chinese, so I let him have his way this time. Although for some reason I always gain weight from it -- but lately I seem to gain for everything. Sure enough the scale was up to 142 this morning. And I had busted my butt working in the yard for over an hour yesterday.
emoticon no smiley for me today!

Lynette -- glad to hear that R is OK. Sometimes pinpointing the problem is the hardest part.

Vicki -- I know exactly what you mean about starting out good, ending up bad. It's nice that your hubby takes you out to eat, but slim people don't understand that restaurant food is a sure way to gain weight. On Valentine's Day DH and I were on our way to the gym and he suddenly says, "How about if we go over to the pizza place for a late lunch?" Yes, it sounded good to me too -- but I told him it would just counterbalance our workout -- and I was trying hard to lose some weight. We didn't go, much to his disappointment.

I expected to see the scale go down this morning -- no binges yesterday, and I did take Amber for a fast walk, and walked quite a bit around the house. But no -- instead I went up 0.6 pounds AGAIN! I'm angry -- but who should I be angry at? I did good yesterday -- so why is the scale up instead of down?

Good morning! I'm finally up after a very long sleep last night, making up for the night before!
We are both feeling better after R's scare. He thought he might be having a stroke or heart attack but after all is said and done, we are both 99% sure that we have pinpointed the source of our difficulties and can therefore move on. He does not want me to share the specifics so I will honor that as best I can so I just want to say thanks to all my friends for being supportive and caring.
It will be Family Day here on Monday so a long weekend. Yes, Eve, when one is not in the workforce, holidays affect us differently.
Well, gotta get to the to-do list. Have a great day, all!

Yesterday I was somewhat motivated -- at least enough to go to the gym with DH. Decided to spend 30 minutes on the treadmill instead of my usual 20. Did some strength training too. But I counter-balanced all that good work by eating compulsively on Newton fig bars. Don't know why I fall into those little traps at times. I guess the best bet for me is to throw out all the temptations.

This morning I got up, showered, did my hair -- and I don't usually do that first thing -- I wait until I've gotten some of the stuff done on the computer. But this morning I did -- and I cut into one of our "huge" grapefruit, and I swear it made 2 cups of sections and juice! It was just delicious and only 138 calories for 2 cups!!

So all you working people will have a 3-day week-end, at least if you work for the schools, the government or a bank. Even my property management company will be closed. I'm glad for all the working people getting an extra day off -- those days seem so long ago it's hard to even remember them.

Tuesday I sign the paperwork on the home in Sun City West that I was using as a rental. So someone got themselves an excellent deal -- and that's one headache off my mind.

Hi everyone, time got away from me tonight - on my way to bed - Eve, things will get better for you - ! You and Vicki are such great leaders of this group - Keep going!!

Vicki I will share my plan tomorrow more. You can check out my nutrition tracker for yesterday and today and see if it makes any sense. I added some notes to explain. It kind of combines diabetic exchanges and Weight Watchers.

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day! emoticon
Lynettemom: Just read your post - sounds like quite a day for you! Hope things are okay this evening!!

Hello ladies. I can hardly type. Short version: called 911 for R last night around 9:30 and then went to the hospital to be with him. I was able to bring him home after observation and multiple tests. I got to sleep about 4:30.
Really wanted to go to Teachers Convention today so we did. Listened to Margaret Atwood in the morning and Rick Hansen in the afternoon. Americans, you may not know those names; they are beloved Canadians, both of whom are wonderfully eloquent and inspirational. I suggest you google them!
Didn't get my steps in yesterday but I am going to try tonight. But I'm hoping to be asleep very early. What a Valentine's Day!

Vicki -- I love that little heart thing you did. So clever!! I copied it and sent to many of my friends -- so clever of me! lol That's the only way I could ever do one of those things using the regular keys on your computer -- copy and paste!

I was truly, truly bad yesterday. And lazy. Especially LAZY! Don't know why or how, but I'm going to just cross off yesterday and not record anything about it -- well, except that it caused me to gain weight. I need to get a life! And "put on my big girl pants." What the heck does that mean anyway? I don't think it sounds good. Why would anyone want to put on BIG GIRL pants anyway?

Well, you can see I don't have anything important to say. The dog slept in our bedroom last night and the cat slept ON our bed. I don't think I got enough sleep. And they both woke up way too early.

a beautiful sunny day: I have to go out so that is nice.
I wear my reading glasses on a string around my neck and yesterday when I left the church they fell. I phoned back and the secretary went to look but could not see them----until later when she saw the pieces! Could even have been me, backing over them. Good thing they weren't "real" glasses.
Gearing up for Valentine's Day---my sweetie responds so well when I am able to be a sweetheart, at least for a day! lol
Hope you are all having a wonderful day today and that tomorrow iwill be an absolutely awesome celebration.

Coorrina, sounds like you had fun in Vegas! So you are going to Visalia next -- can't imagine what you plan on doing there, unless you have relatives. We used to live on a ranch about 20 miles or so from there, when my boys were little -- so that was years and years ago. I can just remember when the owner of the place came to visit from LA -- the owner's wife and I would drive to Visalia and have lunch together. Back in those days I was 19 years old and weighed about 105. She was always amazed when I would order pecan pie WITH two scoops of vanilla ice cream as my dessert. Hmmmm! Those were the days. It's still one of my favorite desssert -- also one of the highest in calories, so I haven't had it for years!

Vicki, you are such an active person it seems like you could consume a trillion calories and not gain any weight -- life just isn't fair sometimes.

Haven't lost any weight on my new "challenge" with myself -- but I'm feeling good so I'll see what I accomplish today to beat my achievements of yesterday.

Have a great day everyone! Hugs, Eve
