Hi Joan,
That is a great exercise raking leaves and getting some fresh air at the same time, good on you
well done.

I sent my husband to do some shopping so that will keep me away from the sugar, as long as he listens to me and don't bring me back anything I don't need.

Have a great day.
Love Rosie.

HI Rosie, if your husband will go to the shops by himself by all means let him. If your like me when you get that first pull of ''I want/need sugar" we are on a very slippery slope. Hang in there.

Yesterday I got out in my front yard where I have three big trees and raked leaves. Now the town does send around a truck with a vacuum on it but that won't be until November, and I wanted these leaves away from my house. So for 30 minutes yesterday I raked leaves.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Thats a great idea Joan, we have to make some changes as we know sugar is our drug we have to stay away from.

I am still going strong we need to go to the shops and do a bit of shopping I have been putting it of as there are so many lovely sugar treats for me to want. I might send my husband this week as I can feel the sugar pulling me.

Have a great day,
Love Rosie.

Hi and welcome Sandra, and emoticon being sugar free for a month. I know you have to feel wonderful, I sure do without that stuff in my body.

Hi Rosie,
I have decided NOT to give out the candy, it just seems to go against everything I've been doing and I just DO NOT want that junk in my house. So have decided to go out to my sister's where they have maybe 5 trick or treater's at the most, I'll stay until around 8 and then come home, this way I don't have to deal with lure of that stuff being around me.

Ladies, have a wonderful Sugar Free day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I think that is a great idea Joan maybe have a early night, you are so right about giving the kids candy as it is just poison.

Well done Sandra on being SF for 30 days that is wonderful.

Have a great day Joan,
Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie,
yesterday I was thinking of going to the store, not sure if I really needed anything or if I was having a ''I want candy attack." Instead I made myself get busy, doing laundry, ironing, straightening up my office desk, and forgot about going to the store. I am giving some serious thought about not turning on my porch light for Halloween and foregoing all that candy being around me, I have to protect myself, and not only that wouldn't I be a hypocrite if I gave out that poison to children when I stay away from it myself. Also the expense of it all, cannot believe how high candy is.
Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, I agree its not just getting the rest I need, it all comes together the eating, sleeping, activity, we have to do it all for this to work. I left my NSV in today's thread. It was about my sister's banana pudding. I did not touch it, and never even thought about it. I did have a thought of, ''you know I could take some of that home with me for later." But, I didn't, I was so proud of myself.
Rosie have a great day and a great week.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
What a great idea I might freeze some of those grapes and see how I go.

All the best on your ww's meeting and it must be very exciting to get your furniture your house will soon be how you want it.

Have a great day

Rosie, we may have talked about this before, but have you ever frozen any of your grapes? I was just thinking it would take you longer to eat them if they are frozen. I love grapes but its the skin on them that sometimes gives me digestive problems. Good news is they are not little candy bars. emoticon

I have WW's today, I think I might actually see a loss for this week, keeping fingers crossed. Oh and my furniture is suppose to be delivered today, I'm so excited. Have a great weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie, the grapes may well be slowing you down a bit, but the salad with just 2 tsp. olive oil, I think your safe with that. For me it would have to be a 1/4 cup of real ranch dressing. lol lol lol. I am running really late this morning and the reason is in the other thread. I have to admit Rosie, I'm happier than I've been in sometime. I feel as if God is saying, ''its your time for a change."
Have a great SF day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I can see it in your post how happy you are now and I am so happy for you/

I am the same with portion control, I do eat a lot of grapes and a huge bowl of salads, I know the grapes are slowing me down with my weigh loss, but I don't know it the salads are to, I only put 2teaspoons of olive oil on my salad and nothing else.

Have a great day Joan,
Love Rosie.

Rosie, I am so happy you enjoyed the tour of my little house. Cannot wait until I get the rest of it done and can share those pictures with everyone. I don't know how to explain it, but I just feel so at home here, as if this place was just waiting for me to show up and love it. Does that make sense? Here is to us keeping our SF days going, I need to work on my portion control, that is for sure.
Love,
Joan

Oh Rosie your poor friend. That makes me think of the time years ago that my Godmother was helping on clean up day at the church and she fell and broke both her wrist. Your so right we have to be extra careful.

I posted pictures on my blog of what we've gotten done on the house.

Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I had such a scare yesterday, and it happened so quickly. Ruthann and I were out in my carport, and we had broken down some boxes and the wind had been blowing like crazy and I walked over to pick up some boxes that we had broken down and some how caught the toe of my shoe on one of the boxes and fell. On my way down all I could think of was, ''oh no the hip may come apart." Good news was the boxes were all stacked up so I had a soft landing, but then how on earth was I going to get up. Ruthann kept asking, ''are you alright, do you think our hip is okay?" Well I rolled around until I could get on my stomach and then did something like a push up and got to my knees and then the rest of the way up. This morning I am sore, but no worse for wear. Still off sugar as well. :)
Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
can't wait to see the pictures, it was a good idea to take a day of, it seems like you are getting everything done very quickly.

I am staying strong being sugar free, I got myself some SF gum and that seems to help a bit.

Have a great day

Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie,
I actually woke up a little earlier this morning. I think around 2 a.m. this morning it was thundering and lightening, I was just awake enough to know it was doing something. Ruthann and I took yesterday afternoon off from working on the house, Oh I did somethings, but when I went out to Ruthan's for dinner I told her, ''lets just take today off." she was good with that. Planning on calling and having my new furniture delivered this week, then I'll be able to take pictures.
Have a great day and even better week.
Love,
Joan

Got lots done here yesterday and again I did not wake up until 5:15 this morning, I"m sleeping like a normal person after 15 years of not sleeping. Still SF, and have plans of staying that way. Hope you have a wonderful day today.

Hi Rosie,
it seems every time Ruthann and I get together we start laughing about something. Its such a good feeling to do that. The other thing and Ruthann mentioned this is knowing that i"m here for good, that I'm not just down here for a day or so and then have to rush back. I was given a rug that I am using in my bedroom details in the other thread. Have a great SF weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I do hope you don't have anymore computer problems, I read your other post and how nice it is for you to have family around you that really care about you. Its lovely you are with your sister now and you are having some lovely memories together. I miss my sister we are the complete opposite but when we are together we have lots of laughs.

I will stay strong and stay sugar free,
have a great weekend fixing up you house.

Hey Rosie, I left the story about yesterday's WW's meeting in the other thread. You are so not going to believe it. Work is coming alone here at the house, its fun but tiring as well. More and more each day I feel more and more at home here. I think I'm where I'm suppose to be.

Oh remember my computer problem I was telling you about? Well, it seems as if somehow something got downloaded on my computer that was better than my virus protection, good news was my protection was keeping me safe, but Kevin had to log in remotely from Louisville and fix the problem, took him two tries but all seems fine now.

Have a great day, and lets stay Sugar Free.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I know what you mean about computer problems we seem to have a lot of that here.

Bob would be so proud of you Joan staying sugar free with all this stress you have been having with unpacking and trying to get settled.

Hope you enjoy your new meeting today it will be nice if you can find a nice and friendly one.

Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie, my computer for the past few days has been giving me fits, with all these crazy pop ups. I need to contact Kevin and see if at some point he can log in and give me some help. I hate computer problems.

Even with yesterday being a year since Bob's passing, I did not eat sugar and last night when I went to sleep my thought was, ''the sugar would not have brought him back," staying strong, but have to admit Rosie, I could not have done this without your support either, we're in this together girlfriend.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am also thinking of you today and you are right both my Dad and your Bob would want us to be happy.
I am staying away from the sugar last night we went and did a bit of shopping and I didn't go near the place where they keep all the sweet things.

So here to another day of being strong. and my prayers are with you.

Love Rosie.

Dear Rosie,
I was thinking of you yesterday as I put out a picture of Bob, and I know tomorrow is the one year since Bob's passing and I remembered, ''my friend Rosie's Dad passed away just before Bob did." My thoughts and prayers are with you due to I know exactly how your feeling right now, but we also have to remember, your Dad nor my Bob would want us to be sad, I know in my heart they are both happy without anymore pain or struggles, and all the sugar in the world is not going to bring either of them back. Also remember, if you do have a slip up its not the end of the world, it just proves we are only human. Hang in there my friend and know I am thinking of you and sharing your sadness.
Love,
Joan

Rosie, was not impressed with yesterday's WW meeting I attended, but I'll find another one. I have the keys to the Broad St. house and now the REAL moving in begins. More of these stories to come. BTW, wish you were here to help me unpack. :)
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I know what you mean, once I am out of my comfort zone I seem to go crazy.

I woke up this morning and thought I really have to get my act together, even though I have been of sugar I am still eating all the wrong food I have turned into Miss Piggy.

So as from today I am going to go out and find a nice little book and some stickers and start again with my tracking, and get back into exercise. Also read lots of weight loss stories these little things seem to help me. I really really want to get to goal and I know only I can do this.

I am also on another site where they have lots of challengers I have even put up some challenges that I am going to stick to like no sugar, 10,000 steps a day, drinking 8 cups of water etc etc.

Have a great time at your weight watchers meeting I am looking forward to hearing all about it.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
well I"m going to take in the WW meeting in Owensboro this morning, I'll give an update tomorrow. I know I've gained due to even though I'm without the sugar, my sister is such a good cook the portions have been much larger than need be. I have really appreciated and enjoyed being here with my sister and her husband, but Rosie, I need to be in my own place where I am in more control. Keeping fingers crossed that it will be this weekend.
Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie,
I think we got some rain here in Beaver Dam overnight, it was much needed that is for sure. Still off the sugar, went by my house yesterday, they are still working, I did ask the guy there Brad, ''I've made an appointment with Time Warner to come and install my cable, internet and phone service, do you think you guys will be to the point that this can be done?" He told me yes, but I've been told ''yes'' before. I so want to get started on getting my new place made into being mine.
Hope your day was a good one yesterday and today even better.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
So glad they don't have Halloween here, I have never been a big fan of that day. When we lived in Australia we also had big security fence around our house as we live on a farm so we never got anyone around.

I can only say buy the most horrible candy that you know you want eat, don't buy it till the very last minute don't keep it in the house and as soon as the night is over put it in the bin. I know I am trying to think of a horrible candy and I can't think of one so I hope you find something or stay at your sisters that night.

WOW the things we have to do to stay away from sugar LOL.

Have a great day Joan (looking for a horrible candy) lol.
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
Ruthann told me yesterday, ''the street your going to be living on will no doubt have a ton of trick or treater's for Halloween." Rosie, how on earth do I buy a candy that I don't like????? The wheels in my head began to turn wondering , ''how on earth am I going to pull that off, having candy around me." When I lived in the condo I never had to worry about that sort of thing due to with a security door we never had to worry. So this will be interesting. I don't want to get my car egged that is for sure.

Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes I got through yesterday without any sweets, but I did have a huge bunch of grapes and that seemed to help also I went to bed early.
It is a shame that we can't have just one sweet and say no to any more. But sweets is our addiction so we have to stay away from them as long as we can.

Hope you have a lovely day,
Love Rosie.

Dear Rosie,
I hope you were able to resist those cravings yesterday. Isn't it a shame that people like you and I cannot afford to have that one bite of something sweet and then just move on. I know all too well about trying to substitute fruit for some fruit, it never works well for me, but I am hoping you were able to stay strong. I just know at some point I'm going to be wanting to dig into something I should not have, but or now we can celebrate each day we remain off the sugar.
Hang in there my friend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
A month goes by so quickly we are doing great, for some reason I really feel like something sweet today, I don't know if its because its the end of the month and I want to sabotage myself, I have had a lovely sweet mango, but that didn't seem to stop the cravings. I want go to the shops tonight because I am worried I might cave in. I am going to go and have a big bunch of grapes and see if that helps and I will try and get to bed early, we normally go to bed about 1am so tonight will have to be a early night.

I will stay strong and I hope tomorrow I do not want any sweet things.

Have a great day Joan
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
hard to believe we've been off sugar yet another month. Rosie, we are doing great and I'm proud of both of us.

Got the u-haul taken back yesterday that was an ordeal in itself, but its done. Now if they would just get my house so I could start moving in.

Rosie hope you have a wonderful day.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I can imagine you being very tired after all that work you did the day before. Hope your legs get better the best thing to do is keep them elevated and drink lots of water.

It will soon be another month that we have both been of sugar, I think we are doing great we will keep going strong and I know we can do it.

Have a lovely day love Rosie

Hi Rosie,
I had to laugh at myself yesterday as I sat in Mass. Being Catholic we do a lot of getting up and down, kneeling so on and so forth, and at one point I thought to myself, ''good thing I have t do this otherwise I might fall asleep." lol lol lol. My feet and legs were so swollen yesterday that my shoes I wore to church I thought might have to be cut off. After church yesterday I pretty much did nothing but sit with my feet elevated and this morning they feel so much better. Being so tired yesterday was a true test for staying off the sugar. For me when I am overly tired I want to just grab and eat whatever I can get my hands on, and as a rule its junk and sweets, but not yesterday I stayed true to myself. Here's to another good week for both of us.

Love,
Joan

H.i Joan,
It was great reading your post from the other forum you all did have a very busy day, good on you for not having any sweet things, I am so proud of you.

My weekend is very quite and I have been good with staying away from sugar plus all the other rubbish I seem to eat on weekends. Sunday here is a normal day the weekends here are Fri and Sat.

Hope the rest of today you can relax Joan enjoy your day.
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
its all done, and talk about some worn out people last night we were there. When we arrived in Beaver Dam, my brother called his son, my nephew Everett and he comes to help unload, Ruthann called her husband Terry and he came as well. Ruthann made me sit and hold Axil the little wiener dog due to she did not want me lifting anything so that was what I did. My eating was off yesterday only due to not having time to eat, but I can also say when we did get a chance to get something to eat, I still did not buy a candy bar, thought about it, but I didn't because I said to myself, ''that candy is not going to get the stuff unloaded one minute faster, so walk away." and Rosie I walked away and got me a apple, color me happy.
Hope your weekend has gone well.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I seem to eat sugar things when I am bored, happy, sad etc, etc, etc, that is why I cannot have it in the house. I really am miss piggy when it comes to sweets and other things like cheese, popcorn the list goes on and on LOL.

Hope all goes well with your trip to Beaver Dam and the unpacking try to take care of your self.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I think one thing that has helped me with the no sugar is spending so much time down here at my sister's. When I was at home so much by myself I was alone, bored so therefore I ate, and of course I ate all those things I did not need.
Can you believe it, we are so close to actually loading up the U-Haul and making my final move, I'm doubtful if I even turn the computer on tomorrow morning so it may well be Sunday morning before you see another post from me.
Love,
Joan

Hey Rosie,
I left the update on Ruthann in the other thread. Thank you so much for the prayers. Good news I'm still off sugar, have no idea how many days that is, but each day I'm off the stuff each day I feel better. Hope all is going well with you.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I know what you mean about popcorn in your gums, it is a pain but I still love it I try and stay away from it as I only like it with lots of butter and salt.

Peanut brittle sounds lovely but of cause I wouldn't be able to stop at one.

I know you have a very busy week coming up with your moving stay safe and look after your self. Hope all goes well with Ruthann at the doctors. Hope all goes well with the move I will be praying for you, have fun.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
a picnic in the dessert, never thought about having one there. Glad you got out and enjoyed your day.
Ruthann made 4 batches of homemade peanut brittle yesterday, that I have no problem turning down due to peanuts, popcorn things like that play havoc on my dental work. Last time I ate popcorn the husk got wedged between my gum and bridge work and $300.00 later I decided, ''its juts not worth it." Live and learn. The candy one was for Terry's Mom, one batch for my oldest stepson Kevin cause he's taking Ruthann and I downtown tomorrow for her doctor's appointment, one batch for Terry to have and as Ruthann said ''I'm making Coty a batch not that he needs it, but if I don't it will hurt his feelings." I told her...none for me thank you.

Wanted to let you know that Ellie sparked mailed me and said she had to quite Sparks for awhile due to her dry eyes. I thought it was very nice of her to let us know. Rosie have a great day and if you don't hear from me tomorrow morning you'll know I did not take my computer with me.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes the kids do get lots of stuff for their birthdays. I don't do birthdays but I am always giving my grandkids presents it is getting harder as they have everything. lol.

Good on you Joan staying sugar free well done they must of been lots of yummy food around.

We went on a picnic in the desert and had a lot of fun, even though I had to wear a Abiya (long black rob) and it was very hot we had a great time.

Hi Rosie,
I hate that when I write a long post and then it gets eaten up by the cyber world. I've been having a ton of problems with ''pop ups'' on my computer.

Went to the Great Nephews birthday party with Ruthann yesterday afternoon, he was three last week. Rosie, that kid and his brother whose birthday was back in March got so much stuff, I just couldn't figure that one out. We never really celebrated birthday's when I was a kid growing up. Mom would let us choose what we wanted for a birthday dinner and what kind of cake we wanted, but no presents it was just way too much. Good news is I did not eat any cake and ice cream or pizza, so I felt good about that.

Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hey Rosie,
your right drinking lots of water does help. I feel so much less bloated this morning than I did yesterday. I'm enjoying my first cup of coffee with you this morning. Ruthann and her husband Terry are still in bed, but Terry will be getting up before too long he goes down to the local restaurant every morning and has coffee with the guys down there. We all it the ''Liar's club," emoticon Its just a bunch of old retired coal miners and farmers that get together, and my brother-in-law said, ''this is why we don't have a newspaper delivered, I can find out all the news before it ever hits the paper." lol lol lol.

This afternoon Ruthann and I have a birthday party to attend. Its one of our Great Nephews party he'll be 3 years old. So our brother called and asked Ruthann and I to come so that will be our thing for this afternoon, no birthday cake for me.

Hope your weekend is going well, and the sugar is not calling your name, I'm good down here without the sugar.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Drinking lots of water will help I think they use far to much salt in the food when you eat out, it doesn't matter how careful you are I always put on a lot of weight.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love Rosie,

Here to another sugar free week we can do this.

Hi Rosie,
when you read my other thread you'll read that I feel as if I've already lost some weight since my weigh in and its true. I did drink a lot of water yesterday so that helps as well. Something else I have noticed is my belly does not feel as happy when I was eating out so much. I know of only one more time I have to eat out and that will be next Tuesday evening, Ruthann and I are taking one of my neighbor's out to dinner.
Hope you have a great weekend. Let's stay sugar free again this week.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I am also proud of you Joan, that you stayed away from desserts, and you will soon loss that 3pounds once you get settled and you don't need to go out for dinners, as most of it would be salt.

Have a great weekend hope Ruthann,s appointment goes well,

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, I got on the scale and I knew it was going to be up and it was 3 pounds, but I was expecting as much. I just proud that I did not order any dessert, and I'm always amazed at how much that nice hot cup of decaf can satisfy me. This is a new week and I get a new try at it again. Leaving later this morning for Ruthann's won't be back this time until sometime Tuesday when I bring Ruthann with me for her doctor's appointment on Wednesday. Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Like I said in the other post, I think its great you went out to all those lunches and dinners and you choose healthy food, well done Joan, a few months back you would of had lots of sugar things I am so proud of you.
Maybe on Monday you can have a sleep in since you don't need t go to work LOL. (I know you like to get up early do I am just kidding)

Have a great weekend and days with your family Joan can't wait to see more photos of your house.

Hope all is going well with you Elly,

Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie,
I had both lunch and dinner out last yesterday and this morning I am feeling bloated. I'm getting on the scale this morning no matter what. I did a lovely time with Dana last night and the meal was great and we had fresh brewed decaf with out meal it was WONDERFUL. Cannot believe that I don't have to go to work when Monday rolls around. I am going to miss it for awhile but once I can get started on my new home, I'll be a happy camper.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

Elly, hope all's well with you .

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Its always nice to get out and have lunch with friends, and good on you for staying away from the sweets, coffee always does the trick. The place you had lunch sounds so relaxing and lovely.

Hope your last day of work went well.
Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie, I have to admit I'm getting tired of eating out, BUT, with that being said my friend Karen who I love with all my heart, is leaving for California on Saturday and she and I would not have a chance to see each other before I leave for good on the 27th, so Karen called yesterday and said, ''can we do lunch?" Well of course we can, and we went to the place on the river, the weather was perfect and we ate outside and watched the sail boats on the river and it was just perfect, I didn't even finish all my lunch I was so relaxed and before we knew it almost two hours had passed. Our dessert was fresh brewed decaf coffee, it was just the best afternoon yesterday.
Today is my last day working, I'm having mixed feelings about that, I did talk with the landlord yesterday afternoon, and he told me he was on his way down to the Broad St. house (my house) to pull staples out of the floor, where they removed the carpet. So hoping to get in and check it all out this weekend.

Hi Elly, hope all is going well with you. Your doing great without the sugar and always remember just how badly you feel when your eating the ''white stuff."

Love,
Joan

Hi Elly,
Well done staying away from that sugar, stress can really make us head to the sugar, I also find I can't have it in the house.

Hi Joan,
It would be so great if your house is ready for you and you can have a good look around this weekend, it is nice that they are trying hard to get it done.
You are having a busy week stay strong and stay of the sugar I know you can.

Love Rosie.

Hi Elly, emoticon for you not stopping at the store on the way home and picking up something sweet. For me the key is to NOT have sweet stuff in the house. You have just had an amazing N.S.V. (Non Scale Victory) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Rosie,
talked with Ruthann yesterday afternoon and she drove by my house and said all that nasty carpet was rolled up and laying on the carpet, and a barrel with empty paint buckets were sitting on the front porch. So maybe, just maybe they WILL have the house done by this weekend...wouldn't that be great.
I thought I only had lunches out on Monday and Wednesday, well got a call yesterday after I got home from having lunch with my WW leader and now I have a lunch today after work. Think I'll just go ahead and pack up the rest of my pots and pans. ;)

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie.

I felt stressed and tired today and was really having a sugar craving attack. Oh well, now I'm at home there is nothing sugary to eat so I'm "safe" tonight. Maybe a bit more sleep will help.

Have a great Tuesday.

Elly

Hi Joan and Elly,
I hope it want take them to long to connect all the things you will need connecting when you get to Beaver Dam wow you haven't long to go also praying that your house will be ready for you when you move there.

Elly we were holidaying in East Africa about 20 years ago (my husband is from there) and we were in little huts on the beach and we had to make sure we kept all windows and doors closed or the Baboons would come and have a great time going though everything. So many tourist left their windows opened and the monkeys had a great time making a mess of everything.

Hope you both have a great day,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, so sorry about that internet connection. I just realized that when I make my move, even if my house is ready to move right in, I'll be without cable connection until Time Warner can get there to hook my tv, phone and computer up. So I maybe out of touch for a few days, but I'll keep everyone posted.

Hi Elly, great job staying away from sugar,and ''Baboons eating the doctor's fruit," goodness, they must have heard it was zero points. ;) Glad he is safe.

Ladies have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie,

Sorry I feel off the page - things are going well. Another few sugar-free days have gone by, so I am happy about that.

Yes, Joan - you do sound like you've been very busy with many food challenges. emoticon Great job with it all! Is this a going away party as in retiring or are you just moving to a new location?

Rosie - I hope your internet issues have resolved. I work for an MD who does who travels and trains people, esp. in Africa, so it is always interesting to see if his internet will work. During his last trip baboons broke into his hotel room (6th floor of hotel with balconies) and ate his fruit. Thankfully they didn't attack him. At least in Saudi Arabia there are no wild baboons. emoticon

Hi Joan,
Been having trouble with my internet, been trying to get on yesterday and finally got on today but it just keeps cutting out. I wrote this post a few times and it just goes of into internet space so here I am trying again.

You do have a busy week, but it sounds like fun, you must have some lovely friends.
Keep having fun Joan and well done for staying sugar free so proud of you as I know it must be hard with all the outings you have been having.

Love Rosie.

Elly, have been missing you the last few days, hope all is well.

Hi Rosie,
the air sure has a Fall feel to it down here in Beaver Dam, so I'm sure its the same in Louisville. I'm heading back early this morning, and I cannot believe how many meals I have to eat out next week. On Monday, lunch with my WW leader, on Wednesday, I have lunch out with the Katz's then dinner out on Wednesday evening with my friend Dana. I know I can make good choices and I will, but that is just way too much eating out for me.
Have a great weekend, and let's stay away from the sugar.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Good on you not having any cupcakes because as you know once you start you and I can't stop. I have never been one for cupcakes I mainly like cakes with lots of cream, and of cause doughnuts.

You are so right we are the ones who has the last word on what goes in my mouth, I will keep saying that to my self.

Have a great weekend hope your well Elly and everything is going great with you.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I was down .8 this week, I'll take it. Also had a NSV to tell you about. Yesterday my brother-in-law Terry his cousin brought them 12 of the most beautiful cupcakes I think I've ever seen, I thought OH NO!!!! But, I stopped and asked myself these questions.

1. Do you really want one of those or is it just the sugar calling your name?

A. it was more habit than anything, someone brings in a sweet treat and I feel I have to have it.

2. How are you going to feel after you eat that thing?

A. Like dirt. I am not only going to be physically and mentally ill, but I will also be hating myself for eating the darn thing.

3. Do you really want to lose the sugar free days that you have gained?

A. Heaven's no...I've worked hard to get last month and the beginning of this months sugar free days in, I do not want to have to start over and I AM THE ONE THAT HAS THE LAST WORD ON WHAT GOES INTO MY MOUTH.

And Rosie, I did not eat a cupcake I did have a slice of cheese later, but I was hungry by then.

Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I have not decided about work in Beaver Dam, but my sister made me promise her that for the rest of this year I would not do anything except get my Beaver Dam house the way I want it and take care of myself. If I do take on another job I don't think it will be a full time thing, and not until maybe next Spring. But to be honest I'm leaving it in God's hands, if there is someone that needs my help he will put them in my path. I feel he did that with Roselee and Benny. Weigh in day today, wish me luck.
Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie,
can you believe it, counting today I have only 4 days left to work, this time next week it will be my last day to work. I will miss the money, I will miss Roselee, but I'm not going to miss the work, I am so ready to begin my new adventure.
Great job without the sugar and I feel stronger each and every day.

Elly, if you stop by hope your day is going well also.

Love
Joan

The icon's are for all of us, we have all been working very hard to stay sugar free.

Elly, I am so very happy for you, one month, now add another one. I'm thinking building flower boxes for the windows next Spring. I have a blog that has picture's of the house if you'd like to see what the outside looks like, please do not pass out when you see the inside due to the person that had lived there most recently did not take care of the house.

Rosie, emoticon not eating any other rubbish over the weekend. We can do this, we just have to emoticon .

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan and Rosie,

emoticon Today is my 1 month anniversary of being sugar free. I feel so good. Recently have been seeing research coming out that refined carbs are worse for our hearts than fat. Of course - we "knew" that! emoticon

Joan are you building window boxes or a house with window boxes? That sounds lovely. Nothing like a window box of flowers to set off a home. emoticon

Just say NO to sugar! Have a good week!

Hi Rosie and Elly, add me to the list of a sugar free Sunday. emoticon Made it back to Louisville safe and sound and even went to a WW meeting yesterday afternoon, I left the story in the other thread.

Rosie, can't you just see window boxes with flowers on the front of the house. emoticon I really hope they get some work done this week, pray for that to happen.

Ladies let's make this a super sugar free day.

Love,
Joan
