Good morning Ladies,
WW's this morning, then I need to go by the mall to do a couple of returns. Funny how you can buy something and in the store thing, ''oh this is just great," but then get home, and you look at it and your thought is, ''what the heck was I thinking." emoticon

I did cancel the doctor's appointment yesterday. The peppermint oil seems to be working fine, and I'm good smelling like a candy cane. emoticon

Jen, Rosie, & Yvonne, hope you all have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Hello ladies!

Whew! Busy weekend! As usual ;)

Hope your knee continues to do well and you don't need the doctor, Joan. I've heard a lot of people have success with different oils. I've never tried them myself but have considered it from time to time.

Hope your Thanksgiving cooking and get together go well, Yvonne, and you have some good visits!

I will be cooking at my house as well for my in-laws (hubby's mom, dad, and aunt) and my daughter's boyfriend will also be here. I will do the turkey and the main sides but hubby will help with the desserts. This is the first time cooking for the in-laws so I'm somewhat anxious but I've never messed up a Thanksgiving dinner yet in all of my years of cooking them so I'm not TOO worried about it.

I get a lot of my steps in first thing in the morning, Yvonne ... I can usually get in about 6 to 7,000 by 5:30 am because I'm up at 4:30 am to do my Leslie Sansone and my treadmill. Then I get another 5 to 7,000 steps whenever I go to Planet Fitness (usually M,W,F,Sa). I also get a good number of steps in just around the house and shopping and if I'm going to be watching TV or reading I just do it while I'm on the treadmill :) I also park at the back of parking lots and I make sure I take extra flights of stairs whenever possible. I create opportunities for steps all day long :) 15,000 is my daily minimum and I usually try to get 20,000. I actually am rarely sitting throughout the day which is why it's so hard for me to get to the computer most of the time. I'm also in an ongoing challenge with some of my Facebook WW peeps and they are really keeping me on my toes!

FINALLY made it to within my goal range so I could go weigh in for the month and get my eTools voucher ... YAY!

Hope you all have a great start to the week!

Good morning Ladies,
Yvonne, sure hope your DD can come and help with the cooking. I always sat my table for the holiday's the night before, it just makes sense. Enjoy the day and don't over do it.

Rosie, so great to hear your husband is improving. I thought about you yesterday morning as I went to get in my car, it was so darn cold and I thought, ''wish I could share this cold weather with Rosie and she could send me some warm weather." emoticon

Jen, hope all is well with you.

I woke up this morning with no pain at all in my left knee/leg, and I really do think its from using the peppermint oil on it. Didn't matter I walked around smelling like a giant peppermint stick emoticon so if after I get my shower and move around a bit, it still doesn't hurt, then I'm cancelling my appointment with the doctor.

Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Girls

Looks like I am cooking after all......... emoticon
thats ok, maybe my dd will come early and help.
I will do as much as I can night before. Even setting up the table.

My gd is home from College so hoping the visit is going well.

Joan,
I love the visual of boxes of butter, with wt loss.
ITs really hard to imagine our body is shredding the fat.
When I hear someone say they only lost 1/2 lb, I think thats Awesome emoticon
then I see two sticks of butter in my head LOL emoticon

Suppose to take GD to Step Class with me Monday.
then grocery shop with DD and then Bake some things and hopefully shop for under garments.
Seems that always takes low priority in buying those things.

Jen, What do you do to get so many Steps in a day?????
are you cooking?

Yvonne, thanks for your condolences, and thanks for putting my weigh loss in perspective, 13 sticks of butter, that is pretty darn emoticon .

Rosie, hope your DH continues to recover, and I know he's glad to back home with you. I bet your a great nurse. emoticon

Jen, glad things are going well for you. Are you doing a big Thanksgiving dinner, and will Brocky get to come home for it?

Our weather is just crazy lately. Yesterday morning when I got up it was 63 degrees, this morning its 30, and we are to only hit 40 today. We had a very windy day all day yesterday, and I have tree branches all over my yard to prove that. At least no trees fell.

I have so far been Sugar Free everyday of November, and that is 18 days now. I wanted something sweet yesterday but I got up and got busy and forgot about it.

I've made myself a doctor's appointment for Monday afternoon about my knee/leg, but last night I used some peppermint oil on my knee/leg and I really think it helped it. I read or heard someone say peppermint oil was good for soreness, so going to put some more on after my shower this morning.

Enjoy the day ladies.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies,

Thanks so much for the prayers. I went to my brother's funeral, for selfish reason's, I wanted to be able to still like the person looking back at me in the mirror this morning. I was successful in that sense. The family acted just as I expected, so no surprise there.

I had my TOPS weigh in yesterday, and was down 3 pounds. I had lost 1 pound when I weighed in at WW's on Tuesday, so I'd say I really had an honest 2 pound loss when I weighed in at TOPS, color me happy. emoticon I have now lost 13 pounds, and maybe some change.

This is why when I go to the grocery I'm there by 5 a.m. I can't stand to deal with the crowds.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Love,
Joan

Good evening ladies

Joan, I hope that you were able to bypass the family drama today but were also able to get what you needed from the service. Be gentle with yourself and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Rosie, weekend shopping is the worst! I try my hardest to stay out of the stores on the weekends all year long and now that it's getting closer to Christmas it is SO much worse!

Speaking of weekends, I hope you all have a great one!

Hi Ladies,

Joan my prayers are with you, hope everything goes well for you, will be thinking off you.

Jen, it's so great you are nearly at your goal weight.

Yvonne hope your well.

Went shopping to day just to get some food items, I should remember never to go on a Friday as its the weekend here on Fri and Sat, so it was soooooo busy I was happy to get home.

Good morning Ladies,
Today is my TOPS meeting, and I'm going for the weigh in and to help Pat with this one elderly lady that has trouble getting on and off the scale, then I'll leave come home redress myself and go to my brother's funeral that is scheduled for 11 this morning. I ask that you all pray for me, my plan is to slip in just before the funeral begins, sit on the back row and slip out at the end. I just don't have the energy to deal with the drama my family can have.

Have a great start to the weekend.

Love,
Joan

Wow ladies ... didn't realize it had been over a week since I'd been in here! Got busy with some housecleaning and reorganization projects and have been keeping myself pretty busy.

Rosie ... glad to hear your hubby is getting better now ... that's been quite a long illness for him (and scary it sounds like!).

Joan ... I'm sorry to hear about your brother and I hope that whatever is wrong with your leg clears up with some rest and taking it easy.

Yvonne ... so good to see you in the Fitbit challenges ... hope all is well in all other areas!

I've been above my goal range for WW all month but am finally getting close to being able to weigh in without having to pay the meeting fee ... whew! And I am SO frustrated with my hormones and this perimenopause garbage ... between the migraines and chest pain (that are hormone induced) and super bloating I'll be lucky to EVER lose any more weight, lol!

Hi Ladies,
Joan I hope your leg gets better and you can soon get back on your bike.

I need to get back on my tramp, I have been pretty lazy with my husband being sick and going to the hospital, but now he is back home I have no excuse.

Rosie so good to hear your husband is recovery even if it is slowly. It's great news.

I really have nothing to report from here, going later this morning to get my haircut. I have done something to my left leg so am having to take some time away from my biking, which bugs me to death.

Hi Jen & Yvonne, hope you both are well.

Love,
Joan

Rosie, that was serious your DH having a bacterial infection. Praying for his speedy recovery. Love the exercise thing you posted, its so me. emoticon Thanks so much for the condolences for my brother. I have to admit I was not shocked or surprised when I got the news, he's actually lived longer than I ever expected him to.

Jen & Yvonne, hope you both are doing well. Have a wonderful day.

I lost another pound this week, that makes a little over 11 pounds since I rejoined WW on October 24th.

Love,
Joan

Hi Ladies,
Sorry about your brother Joan, I remember you trying to help him a few years ago but he didn't want to listen to you. I do hope you get through the funeral and it's not to much drama.

My husband got a bacterial infection and it went into his kidneys, he is getting better but has taken awhile.

I put this quote here as its a bit like me with my exercise lately, but I'm staying SF, been good so far with staying SF for Nov.

Good morning Ladies,

I have some sad news to report today. I received a call late last night that my 57 year old brother, he's the baby of the family passed away yesterday. I have to admit I'm not having any feeling one way or another about this, and before you think I'm cold heart'ed let me just say, this has been coming for some years. He had heart trouble, he was a diabetic, he was going blind from the diabeties , and he had places on his feet and legs that just would not heal. His doctor who happens to be my Internist as well told me once, ''your brother waits until he's knocking on death's door then he comes rushing to us to fix him. One day we're not going to be able to fix him." Yesterday was that day. Here is another odd thing about his death, he died the very same date 11-13 as our brother that passed away last year on 11-13. Pray for his family, there will be so much drama.

Love,
Joan

Rosie, my goodness he has been through a lot :(
Hope he recovers quickly at home.
You did great indeed. When I am stressed I turn to convenient foods. comfort foods.
No sugar, you are doing great.

Heading to WW then the gym.

Joan, the walk was with dd, ( my daughter) :) She has gotten into hiking.
I don't like that she will go by herself. Not in these unstable times.

Rosie, so glad your DH is back home with you. Did he have pneumonia? Praying for his recovery, and I'm so proud of you staying away from the sweets with all this going on. I'm proud to say I've been sugar free all this month so far as well. Really feeling good about that. Now you remember to take care of yourself as well. emoticon

Yvonne, I know all about the lure those bread sticks I could eat basket after basket of those little Devils. emoticon Sounds as if you made good choices, and you did have your breakfast points to use, then you went for a very long walk with your Dad, I think you did great. Hope this week will be a good one for you.

Jen, hope all is well with you. Hope your weekend was a good one as well.

Sunday was overcast, cold and damp, so I got my bike riding in and then just watched TV, so not a big deal for me, then in the afternoon, I did take a little nap which was very nice.

Love,
Joan

Hi Ladies,
Sorry I've been away from here, been spending most of my time at the hospital my husband came home today he is recovering slowly he isn't in so much pain, he was taken of the intravenous drip and is now on 3 kinds of antibiotics, it's good he is back home and I can now get back into a routine.

I've been good with my eating plan and I haven't had any sugar so far for November.

Hope you are all well will have to go back and read all the post I've missed out on.
Love Rosie.

Yep she must be LOL

the bread sticks are 4 pts
I caved, I had TWO sticks.
I had Shrimp scampi, it was 15 pts, BUT, I ate Half and had the other half at dinner time
I order the Salad with LITE dressing its only 1 pt
I ate two plates of salad.
So our meal was a Brunch cause we had no breakfast.
We enjoyed it and the service was great.
When we get there at 11 we are first on the list to be seated :)

then my dd and I went on a 2.32 mile hike.

So I was happy for that to burn calories.

I have been cold today, but we did have some sun today, so I can't complain.

Tomorrow is WW so I have to choose smart for tonight.

Have a Great day.

Yvonne, love the Veteran's banner you left for us. Thanks to any and all you keep us safe.
That's another thing I love about the WW app is you can look up places to eat. I do know probably the lowest in points at Olive Garden, which I love, is the soup and salad, the bread sticks are very high in points.

Rosie, and Jen, hope you both are doing well. Rosie, sure hope DH is getting better each day.
Jen, keep up the good work.

It's gotten quite cold here, and its gotten cold way too early for the time of year. Mother Nature must be going through the change. emoticon

Have a great day, and a great week.

Love,
Joan

Oh dear, I just went back and read post over again, ROSIE, I missed the part of your DH having a kidney infection.
So sorry, I know that's painful. How is he doing now????

Joan, congrats on staying the same. You did lose a Lot the first week.
I use my weekly points, and tracking is the only way I see how Over board I go at times.

today we are going to Olive Garden for Vets free meal.
meeting friends and my mil.
Dan always gets the spaghetti.
I am going online to see Points BEFORE I go and stick to it.
It will be our Brunch, then soup for dinner.

Its wet here, cold but not too cold.
I do get tired of the ground being wet, I need to sweep our driveway. The Cedar trees shed crap all over it.
and it won't blow away like leaves do.

JEN, how do you manage to get so many Fitbit steps??? You have a job that your on your feet a lot?


Have a great Weekend.

Good morning Ladies,
I had my weigh in at TOPS yesterday and stayed the same, but I'm still counting a loss for the week since I weighed in at WW on Tuesday and was down 2.6. I'm good with that.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. It's gotten quite cold here, so I"m sure I'll just cuddle up here in my house and stay warm.

Rosie, hope your DH is improving each day.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Girls,

Yvonne, so glad you were able to get back to the gym. I always feel better if I get my bike riding in early in the morning, if I put it off, I just never get it in. I'm with you on getting out and getting errands ran and such, now its dark by 5 p.m. here, and like you I've been going to bed a little earlier as well.

Rosie, so good to get an update about your DH, but sorry he's still in hospital. However, that is probably the best place for him. I got my flu shot the other day, and they do say this is going to be a bad year for the flu.

Jen, hope all is well with you. Stay focused.

Have a great day ladies, TOPS meeting for me today, hoping the scale is nice to me. I've gotten blue dots on my phone app all week so that is good.

Love,
Joan

Joan, I know what you mean, and with the internet now its a daily thing to have something bad happening where ever and we know about it.
I get in overload myself.

Rosie, your hubby have the flu?
they say its suppose to be bad this year. Always seek a Dr. when the lungs are involved.
So many illnesses now last for weeks.

I have a very low week, until yesterday and today.
it feels good to hit the gym.

we returned some stuff and shopped next at Costco.
got lots of steps in there :)

Jen, who is Bocky??
Good to see you. I like to have my running done by 3ish too.
especially with it getting dark so early now.
I actually hit bed 1/2 hour earlier.
Its allowing me to get a bit more sleep in, which is a good thing.
I didn't have a nap yesterday or today, so will be super tired tonight.

Girls lost the game, but they had ties 1-1 and it went into overtime and then penalty kicks.
Other team won.
Proud of how well they did.

Good morning Ladies,
My coffee taste extra good this morning. emoticon It's cold here this morning, and from what I'm hearing its only going to get colder. Burrrr, I'm so not ready for Winter weather.

Rosie, I hope your DH is doing better, hope he's out of the hospital and back with you. emoticon

Jen, don't you just love to reorganize stuff. I don't I put that job off, just the dread of getting started, but once I dive in, I love to stand back and look at a job well done, good for you.

Yvonne, hope all's well with you.

Love,
Joan

Good evening ladies :)

Just a super quick stop since I didn't get in here yesterday either ... just wanted to say awesome success on the scale, Joan! That is fantastic! And I just love those blue dots :)

I've been busy with some reorganization projects so haven't been on SP much at all. I'm still sparking and stepping though!

Hope you're all having a great week!

Good morning Ladies,

Had my Tuesday weigh in yesterday and I lost another 2.6 pounds, for a total of over 10 pounds. I am so happy that I decided to rejoin WW and even more thrilled that I'm staying on track and so far getting those blue dots, which mean you were on plan those days.

Rosie, hope your DH is feeling better today.

Jen & Yvonne, hope you both have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Rosie, I'm so sorry your DH is in the hospital, but I'm glad you were able to get him to go see the doctor. I'll be praying for his recovery, and praying for you to stay strong. Wish I was there to sit with you. emoticon

Jen, sounds as if you had a great Sunday, singing with the radio and being with Brocky. He sounds like a really sweet guy.

Yvonne, hope all's well with you. The last few days here in Kentucky have been cold and rainy, not my favorite kind of weather for sure.

Today is my WW meeting, and I'm looking forward to my weigh in today. I've had a really good week, have gotten a lot of blue dots on my WW appt thing, and I don't know what they mean, but my jest of things is its a good thing.

Prayers for all of you my dear friends. Be safe and be happy.

Love,
Joan

Good evening ladies :)

We had a great Brocky visit ... they usually always are :) On the drive home and back while Brocky is in the car with me for the 35 minute drive each way, I sing along to KLOVE on the radio (AWESOME Christian music station), and Brocky sways to the music and grins at me off and on ... such fun, lol!

Sorry your husband is so sick, Rosie, and prayers for a rapid recovery!

Adding my prayers up for everybody involved in the Texas church shooting. And the Colorado Walmart shooting. And the New York bike path incident. And, and, and ... Just so disheartening all of the craziness in the world. Natural disasters too. Sigh. Guess I will never run out of people to pray for :/

Hi Ladies,
That is such sad news Joan. I haven't heard about it here.

My husband had to go to hospital he has a infection in his kidneys he had to go on a intravenous drip he was in a lot of pain. The hospital staff are so lovely really takes good care of him.

Hope everyone is having a lovely day

Good morning Ladies,
I find it so disheartening when I hear of all these shootings and trucks running people down. I always thought your house of worship would be a safe haven, but not anymore. I pray for all those that lost their lives, and I pray for the families, and the small town in Texas. It made me think when a woman said, ''this is a small town, things like this don't happen here." This is how I have always viewed living in Beaver Dam, things like that don't happen here, and I pray they won't, but you just never know. It's not the guns, but its the people that can get the guns, and so much mental illness out there.

Sorry that my post is not uplifting today, but its hard to be uplifting when things like this keep going on.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies,

Jen, good for you getting to Planet Fitness. I'm so proud of you. Have a great visit with Brocky, he sounds like a sweetheart.

Yvonne, Love your new profile picture, you are a beautiful lady. I think I would be tempted to go cut those trees down for my neighbor. emoticon Just kidding, but love that mountain view.

Rosie, so sorry your DH is not feeling well, sure hope he gets to feeling better soon. BTW, I did better with the time change than I thought I would.

Have a great day Ladies, and let's make this an on plan week.

Love,
Joan

Good eveining Joan, Rosie, and Yvonne :)

Joan ~ you are doing fantastic with the combination of your TOPS and WW! Congrats on your win ... makes it even more fun ;)

Rosie ~ I wish we didn't have to do the daylight savings time nonsense. Why is that even still a thing?, lol. Hope your hubby feels better soon!

Yvonne ~ I love soup for dinner ... so much variety to be had AND low points makes it a win-win :) Stay safe with any snowfall and good luck to the girls!

Tomorrow is Brocky day emoticon I LOVE Sundays emoticon
AND ... I was super proud of myself today because Katelyn had a sleepover last night into this morning so I missed my WW meeting and Planet Fitness but I actually went to Planet Fitness late this afternoon to make sure I got it in (I usually like to be done for the day by 3:00ish). I actually walked the treadmill at 5% incline and did the bike on level 2 ... strength and endurance are definitely improving :D

Have a great Sunday!

JOAN, ROSIE, and JEN
well everyone sounds like they are doing well :)
Look at you go Joan, wow.
My main focus seems to be to get my steps in. The better I am with that, the better my weigh ins on Mondays.

I love that mountain, if the trees were down between me and the neighbors I would have a great view from my office.
But I don't foresee that happening.

My eating has been off today, so think I will eat soup for dinner.
its the lowest I can come up with for points tonight.

Girls WON and heading for State, next game is in Spokane, WA. Too far for us so hoping they do well.
Makes for a long day bus ride up and back, maybe they will go up Tue. NIGHT and drive back after the game on WED.
They might be rested that way.
We are expecting snow tonight/tomorrow.
so that means the pass will have snow.

Went to a bazaar yesterday and today, got a few small things.

I always like to buy homemade items.

Hi Ladies,
So glad you won Joan, I think these completions are a great idea

Jen so happy your son is doing better hope you get a good sleepin.

Joan the part of Aus where I come from had a vote who wanted Day light savings and more people voted No to it so we don't have it in our state.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, we aren't doing much as my husband is sick, ( he is never sick so this is strange to see him sick)

Good morning my Friends,

Yvonne, I love the picture. I went to Oregon twice and when the plan was getting ready to land in Portland, we could see the mountain, and a friend that I stayed with from her driveway, way off in the distance you could see the peak of Mt. Rainer. Honestly I could live in Oregon with no problem at all its such a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing the picture.

Jen, so glad to hear Brocky is doing well. I've thought of him many times.

Rosie, hope you have a fun weekend planned.

Results of my TOPS weigh in, well, I lost 2.25 pounds more just since my weigh in on Tuesday at WW. I think combining these meetings are working for me, because I have two weigh in's a week, and that does keep me focused. I did win the Kroger gift card, and it was suppose to be for $10 but the girl that supplied it bought a $15 gift card, even better. emoticon Pat, our weigh in person, has come up with another contest to begin next Friday, and I'm ready. Also I was the biggest looser for the month of October. All in all a great day for me. In fact our whole group did better than we had been, so that is positive.

Tonight we turn our clocks back an hour, it will take me until its time to turn them forward again to get used to the time change. Wish they would leave us on the time we are, but that's not in the card.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Love,
Joan

Good evening, ladies :)

I just rejoined this team here on SparkPeople so I could chat on this thread. I've been with Weight Watchers for years and been lifetime for over 2 1/2 years now :) It's going to be my lifetime maintenance plan ;)
I'm glad you've rejoined WW, Joan ... I really do like the program so much better since they started the SmartPoints. I wish you much luck with it!
Brocky is doing well, thanks for asking. He still has issues from time to time with his behaviors but for the most part is happy and stable. He hasn't had any seizures for a good long time and, fingers crossed, hopefully that is a thing of the past.
That pumpkin coloring contest sounds fun! A nice way to put a little friendly competition into the mix ;) Hope you had great results and won the contest!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Katelyn is having a sleepover tonight so I won't be going to my WW meeting tomorrow ... not TOO upset though because I haven't slept in on a Saturday since her last sleepover a couple of months ago :)

Good morning Rosie, Yvonne, & Jen,

Jen, I'm so happy to see you back with us, but you didn't have to join WW just to come and be with us. So happy your loving Planet Fitness, I have heard lots of good things about that place and the price is right. I also rejoined WW's, and so far doing great. Also have been sugar free all but 13 days of October and so far all of November, doesn't matter that we are just two days into November. emoticon . How is your son doing?

Today is my TOPS meeting, and also the day we find out who lost the most weight for the month of October, and who won the contest of getting to color their pumpkin orange. I have to admit I do have some black squares on my pumpkin but I'm hoping I have more orange ones. emoticon

Have a great day ladies, and the weekend is upon us.

Love,
Joan

Hello ladies!

I've rejoined the Weight Watchers team so I can chat with you all again ... I've missed you all quite a lot!!!

I hope you're all doing well and keeping active and healthy!

I'm still maintaining my lifetime status at Weight Watchers, although I'm up a bit this week so will wait until next week to go and weigh in so I don't have to pay the $15 meeting fee (because I'm cheap, lol). My hormones are really giving me quite the challenge with it though and I have unfortunately fallen back into the sugar trap so I'm working on getting off of it again and can hopefully STAY off of it once I do.
I've also joined Planet Fitness (in September) and have got a good routine going there and I'm actually LOVING it :) I've even managed to get into a mild strength training routine without setting off my fibromyalgia so I'm SUPER happy about that.

Yvonne ... how incredibly AWESOME is that view?!!! All I see outside is houses and buildings, lol. Also see the school about a block over and I get to hear the kids playing outside at recess periodically and that's kind of nice.

I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you and wish you all a great Thursday!

Jen

This is down the street from me and I enlarged the shot to make it closer to the camera :)
Its Mt. Rainier. I never get tired of seeing that. Wish I had a permanent view facing it.
IF some trees were down around here I would have a view. I do have from the far back corner of my backyard, But its not someplace I would sit at.
I am trying to make myself go to the Y today..... my bones are talking to me.
With Aerobic and Zumba and extra walking my knees and left hip are letting me know.
Tonight is Soccer for my youngest GD, she is a JR. in high school.
They are in State competition now.
yahoo.
Stay warm Joan, we are getting colder weather now too, low 30s at night.
May see snow flakes or flurries :)

Good morning Rosie & Yvonne,
Yvonne, great job with the activity, and good luck on your upcoming weigh in. Sounds as if your doing all the right things. emoticon

Rosie, missing you. Hope all is well.

Woke with a sore throat this morning myself, but I'm thinking it more sinus related than anything, so some hot liquids should take care of that.

Love,
Joan

Hi Girls,
sorry I have been MIA. Catching up now.
I have been walking with my neighbor Barb.
yesterday was 1.75 mile about 40 min, AND Zumba Gold class 50 min
Today was Aerobic St. class for 60 min
AND walk with Barb and got in 2 miles.
I am trying to get off about 3 lbs that has stalked me and so I can have a worry free weigh in on Monday.
So my goal is sorta 10,000 steps instead of the norm of 8000.

The news is very upsetting, I have a hard time watching or listening to radio.

Anyway. ROSIE, omg, 120 that's worse than Arizona.
Worse I was in was 106 in Tucson, AZ it was miserable.

we are heading into really cold weather, now, sort of balmy some days, but I will take it.
Our leaves are blowing off the trees. Sad, I love the color.

JOAN, congrats on the losses OMG, that's a lot.
I know eating better is probably getting the sodium down too, so fluid loss, but your doing amazing. Don't you LOVE the Phone app? Its my favorite and I like logging my food on it.
Plus seeing it on the computer.
Smart Points really is awesome.

Soccer playoffs last night again, and Thursday they play again. They won both games so it will be the third game and losers play Saturday, don't know where they will play if they win.

Good morning Ladies,
I am so happy to report ''WW works if you work it," and I worked it last week and the results were I lost 8.2 pounds. That is counting the 3.24 pounds that I lost when I weighed in at TOPS on Friday. Color me happy. I know this is a lot, but it was my first weigh in since joining WW.'s, but I am going to follow the plan again this week.

Prayers for those in New York. What a tragic thing to happen yesterday afternoon. Our world seems to be out of control.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie & Yvonne,

Today is my first official weigh in with Weight Watchers after joining last Tuesday. I had a very good loss to show at TOPS on Friday, and I'm excited to see how I've done from Friday until today. I know I'll have a loss, but more important to me is....I stayed with the plan all week long....No backsliding for me.

Hope you both have a great day. I won't be giving out Halloween candy, never bought any I knew it would just cause me a problem and anyway with so many overweight kids, the last thing they need is another candy bar. Just sayin'.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies,

Cannot believe this is the last Sunday of October. This whole year has just flown by. Life is going way to fast.

I am looking at my calendar where I put my stars for sugar free days, and I had more sugar free days than I had days with some sugar. According to my calendar I had 13 day's that I dipped into the sugar can. I'm making ALL of November SF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope the weekend is going well for you both.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie, & Yvonne,

I had a wonderful weigh in yesterday, I was down 3.25 pounds this week, and now I can't wait to weigh in on Tuesday at WW's. emoticon I was so thrilled because that means not only did I lose what I had gained the week before, but I lost 3/4th of a pound more. emoticon

I did make it home before it began to rain here, and I was so glad that I did because it was very windy as well, and turned out just to be a really raw day and now we are going to be quite cold for awhile, something that is really early for here. We should still be having high's in the upper 60's, but we are going to be lucky to get out of the 40's this week. BURRRR.

Have a great weekend.

Love,
Joan

Our meeting Tuesday was on emotions, and I liked what the leader and group both had to say, ''first you have to find out what's really bothering you." Lot's of time this is hard because there are many times the very thing making us want to stuff our problems has been buried for years.

Hi Rosie, thanks for being happy about my rejoining WW, I think its the best thing for me, and this time I downloaded the phone app from WW, its free where I can scan the bar codes on food and get the points before even buying the product. It's really cool.

Going to TOPS today, hoping for a loss this week. I'll keep you both posted.

Love,
Joan

Sounds like quite an adjustment to heat 6 months. How hot????
Maybe like Arizona, 90s and 100s.

Hooray for WW near you.
Last month was very emotional. Great lesson, I bet you had the same pamphlet.
Emotional eating??
if not ask for past pamplets. They usually give them to you if they still have some.
Our leader is a man, and he gets emotional talking about his past. Very touching.
He has been at goal I think for 13 years.
Went from a skinny 9 yr old to a fat child in one year and there after.
Food was his comfort.
I weigh in Every time I go.
But the First meeting of the month I go Counts.
the rest don't.
so I could have a gain, but it won't count until the 1st weigh in of the month.
Keeps me on my toes.
IF I had a Gain over my 155 like 157.1
then I would pay.
OR, I have a choice to skip the meeting and weigh in the next Monday.
That's why I want to drop 3 lbs to give me a 5 lb window to weigh in :)
I think you have a 10 lb loss that if I would go to 145, then they would want me to change my Goal wt.

OK off to get ready for a workout.
Talk with you later. Enjoy your day.

Hi Ladies,
Joan I'm so happy for you I know how much you missed your WWs group, it makes it so much easier when the people you are with are on the same plan.

Dubai should star cooling down next month as we are going into winter, here is 6 months of extreme heat and 6 months of lovely weather never gets very cold.

Good morning Ladies,
Okay, its gotten cold enough that I broke down and turned my heat on, and I have to admit it does feel good this morning. emoticon I am grateful that my furnace is working and I have a roof over my head. I always worry when the weather begins to get cold about all the homeless people out there. I don't know that we have any here in Beaver Dam, but I've lived in other city's that there were so many. I apology for getting off on a sad not, but I just think, ''if not for the grace of God, that could be me."

Okay, my second full day on WW has gone great, and I'm still sugar free, so that is a plus as well. At the moment I have more sugar free days in October, than days that I ate anything sweet. emoticon I call that a win, win.

Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Girls,
I have some news I want to share. After I left Louisville, I found a WW meeting in Owensboro to go to, but I just could not click with it. So I just stopped going. Waited a few months then found TOPS, which is okay I have met some nice people, but its still not exactly what I've needed. One day last week I found in my inbox of my email an offer from WW, for a 3 months pass, the price was good, so I looked to see if there was a meeting in Owensboro, other than the one I had attended before. Well, there was, and it meets on Tuesday morning , weigh in time begins at 8 a.m. meeting time at 8:30 perfect for me. So I enrolled and yesterday went to the meeting. I love the leader, and the group is AWESOME, I felt like I was back in Louisville with my old group. I did tell the leader that I attend TOPS on Friday's and she said, ''that's not a problem it just gives you more support." I have to say getting support with my TOPS group is really hard, they are all much older, they are sickly so for them to lose weight comes much easier, I needed the support of people who are like me and want to eat. I'm going to continue to go to my TOPS meetings on Friday, just because we are such a small group, and for the past two years they have been there for me, but I'm also going to be going to my new WW group on Tuesday morning's.

Hope you both are doing well. IT's gotten cold here in Kentucky, and the trees are really turning fast, and the leaves are falling just as fast. Have a great day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Lafies,
Yvonne your doing so well it must be great being at goal, I was at goal 2 years ago and then I let life (FOOD) get in my way trying to get there again. I have to keep myself busy from feeding my face, I do read, sew, watch YouTube and watch and read a lot of blogs about weight loss.

Joan I'm like you I need to weigh once a week, I would love to go to meetings but I can't find any here in Dubai so I just weigh at home.

Love Rosie

Yvonne, great job staying the same. My friend that lives in Louisville, and has been at goal for the past 10 or 12 years, told me that she had lost her weight many times, but each time she thought, ''I can just weigh in each month, and be fine." She tells me that this time has been different because she continued to go each week and weigh in and stay for the meetings. Some people can get away with weighing in once a month, but I know I wouldn't be able to because I would get it in my head, ''oh I don't have to weigh in for 4 weeks, so I can eat this or that." I'm glad your not that way, and weighing in once a month seems to be working for you. Great job.

Hi Rosie, I have read about those "Fat Bombs" I've never made any, but wondered what they were like. If it works keep it up. I know the longer I'm off sugar, the better I feel and my cravings seem to be less.

Have a great day girls.

Love,
Joan

Thanks girls, good ideas.
Now I am hungry LOL
Its 2pm and I had a late bk of bacon and eggs and sour dough toast.
I will eat left over dinner from the restaurant last night.

Today was STEP AEROBIC
and then WW meeting.
I was 155 which is right on, with my GOAL.
So I still had 2 lbs to fudge.
I will keep trying to lose about 3 lbs so I can weigh in at 152, dressed.

Good meeting, about Emotional Eating.
80% of us raised our hands.

So I will ask you all
what do you do to stay away from feeding our face??
I play on the PC and Cell, and sometimes call a friend.
I need to read more, catch up on my magazines and a good reading book. I have several.

Hello Ladies,

Yvonne because I'm doing LCHF I don't really craving sugar like I use to, in my diet I eat good fats so if I do carve sweet things I make fat bombs, you can get lots of recipes on the net. I do try not to have them much as you use stevia even though they say it's a natural sweetener.

Joan hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Love Rosie

Good morning Ladies,
Yvonne, I had a WW leader tell us one time, ''if you want something sweet, just go ahead and eat the real thing. That way your not eating a whole bunch of points and calories and are still not satisfied." For me, if I'm craving something sweet I keep a jar of cherry or strawberry preserves in my fridge and I'll make me a slice of toast from the Ezeikel bread I keep in the freezer and put some of the preserves on it make me a cup of coffee and that takes care of my craving, and with the Ezeikel bread, its made of whole grains and its a very chewy bread, I find it in the freezer section of my Kroger store. If I went with a piece of candy, then that would just lead to more candy or cake either one. Hope this helps.

Good morning Rosie, hope your weekend was a good one. It's raining here this morning.

Here's to a great week.

Love,
Joan

Happy Sunday :)

What do you girls eat to satisfy a sweet craving?
They say eating sugar free or subbing artificial sugars is not good for the body or brain.

Good morning Yvonne & Rosie,
I'm so glad you and your GD had such a great visit Yvonne. I used to love doing the elliptical, but my poor legs, hips and back just won't hear of doing it anymore. You'll find something to do today I'm sure of that.

Rosie, hope your weekend is going well. Not sure what I'll do today, I worked extra hard yesterday, cleaning and rearranging my living room. Not good on the back, but I got it done, which made me very happy.

Love,
Joan

Hi Girls

Had a blast having my GD with me at my Step Aerobic class.
Its not a senior class and sometimes we moderate if need be..
had her over for Quiche, and talked awhile, catching up.

went to lunch at a sushi place for lunch and split 6 rolls between 4 of us
delicious.
No raw.

did my Elliptical on my machine in the garage.
about 45 min.

Tomorrow, not sure :)
but will do something.

Crazy how wt fluctuates, isn't it.
with me its always sodium from restaurants or processed foods.
soups, ect.

I depend on my scale to keep me honest.
Hope you both have a Great Sunday.
its rainy here, but we have a few days coming up next week with sunshine.

have a Great day.

Good morning ladies,
I am so bummed, I've been off sugar everyday this month except 3 days, I have tracked, exercised stayed on plan, but when I weighed in yesterday I was up 2.5 pounds. I just couldn't believe it.
Oh well, here's to a better week, scale wise.

Love,
Joan

Yvonne, I hope the rain let up before the soccer game. What fun you'll have exercising with your GD.

Rosie, hope all is well with you.

Today is my TOPS meeting, and I have not gotten on the scale at all here at home this week, I'm trying an experiment. A friend of mine threw her scales out some years ago because she said ''they messed with her," meaning as we all know some days especially if its a day after we've eaten something salty the scale will be up, sometimes our bodies just want to mess with us, so my friend said, ''I got rid of my scale and only weighed in once a week at the WW meeting." She has been at goal now for about 10 years , maybe even longer. So I've given this a try this week just to see what happens, I will report tomorrow.

Have a great Friday, and a great weekend.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Yvonne, & Rosie,

Yvonne, good to see a post from you, and I'm with you, I love not having to work, even though there are times I miss not seeing people. I worked for years in the grocery business, and customer service back at that time was a real thing. That is the part I miss now when I shop, most of the checkers or staff will even thank you for your business.

Rosie, I got it all done yesterday. Good dental check up so I'm good for another six months, and finally got my hair cut, which I so needed. There are days when when we just don't have that little extra energy we need to get in those steps. You'll do it today, I'm sure of that.

Enjoy the day.

Love,
Joan

Quick fly by, before hitting the hay.

Aerobic class today and shopping at grocery store.
rainy day.
watched the movie Wonder Woman.

Also watched The Good Doctor.
I like it.

My GD flies home for the weekend.
goes home Sunday, looking forward to a meal with her.

Gotta run.
see you tomorrow.

I love retirement. Maybe if I Loved my job I would want to still be working or part time.
The days fly and it gave me the opportunity to be available for the grandkids.

Night all.

Good morning Rosie, & Yvonne,
busy day today, at 9 this morning I go to the dentist, then after that I have my haircut appointment at 11, and I am so looking forward to the haircut appointment, I'm over due by two weeks, and since I wear short hair anyway, the extra length has been driving me crazy.

Hope you both have a wonderful day. I"m still sugar free, and feeling good about it.

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies,
Yvonne, great news that your still within your goal weight. Great job with the activity as well.
I just post once a day, and for me that's early morning.

Good morning Rosie, hope your day will be filled with lots of fun.

I got my furnace fixed, it was the thermostat so I have a new one now, and I"m glad since its a cold morning here this morning, but I still don't want to turn the heat on, its just way too early for me, and once I get on my bike I'll warm up quickly. emoticon

Love,
Joan

Good morning Ladies,
we went from Summer temps to this morning its 47 degrees, and since it was 70 yesterday morning at this time, the 47 really seems cold. emoticon I have noticed the leaves on the trees are much slower turning colors this year than in past years.
Nothing going on here, I'm suppose to have a furnace guy coming by today, but never got a call from the landlord to tell me for sure if someone would be here or not, so guess I'll be staying at home all day whether I want to or not.
Have a great day, another sugar free day for me, that now makes 14, I did hit a little bump in the road, but got right back on track.

Love,
Joan
