Hi Joan,
Thankyou so much for those lovely words, they really encourage me emoticon .

Even though I am back in my comfort zone I have been eating really bad not even sugar things just cheese (way to much) french fries and to much bread. It is funny as I have not had bread for months on end but I brought some yesterday and now I am just eating it as if its going out of fashion and then all the rubbish I put on it. I need to take a step back and start thinking about what I am doing to my body. Well only I can do it and I love being your hero so I will get my act together, it want be today because I have gone crazy again.

"One day at a time " I will weigh myself on Saturday and get my weight books sorted out I will throw any rubbish out I do not need and I will not bring it back in the house.

Have a great day Joan, now I am going to go and read some blogs and go on a few different sites to get myself going.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
so good to see you back, and so what if you ate somethings or a lot of things there were not the best for you. Its a new day, your back in your own surroundings so now you can get right back on track. You can do it Rosie, your my hero.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
As you can see I am back, had a nice time away, but ate way to much of the things I didn't need to eat. emoticon .
Well I have to put that behind me and get on with what I know I have to do. Great story you posted about the dairy cream well done Joan.

Hope you have a wonderful day I bet you are counting the days till you leave, how exciting for you. emoticon .

Love Rosie.

Hi Joan,
My back is so much better but I need to get back in to exercise I am feeling pretty lazy at the moment.

We might be going away for the weekend until Tuesday still not sure, so if you don't see me on here you will know I am away and I will be back Tuesday.
Have a great weekend
Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
I have to admit, I do show up mainly to see my other WW friends. I need to work the program, instead of just messing around like I have been. Have a great weekend.

Good morning Rosie,
the pool was nice yesterday, but when I went to take my shower after doing the pool, there was no hot water at the gym. Thought I might freeze to death before I could get that shower over with. lol lol lol.
Today is WW meeting day, have not decided if I will weigh in or not, I know I have not done my best this week, but I keep showing up.
Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I'm going to give the pool another try this morning. My hip is still not all that happy, but going to give it a try anyway. The weather here is Kentucky is just beautiful for July. Normally this time of year its very hot and humid, and the AC is getting an overtime workout, but yesterday and this morning the temps are more Fall like. I love this weather, and it makes me want to actually get out and do things.
Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
My back is a lot better I didn't exercise as I don't want to over do it, I will see how I feel tomorrow.
Sad you can't go swimming everyday but you need to rest your body so a few times a week is great.

Hope you are having a great day. Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
hope your back is better this morning. I did do the pool yesterday and my hip hurt all day yesterday. So this morning going to take a break from it, and see how it feels today, this maybe something I can only do a few days per week.
Not much to report from here. Hope your day will be a good one.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I do hope the pool works out for you as it is suppose to be such a good exercise do they do water aerobics at your gym, I use to do that years ago and I always felt so good after.

My back feels better today but I didn't exercise if it is feel better tomorrow I will begin my exercise routine.

Hope you have a great day. Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
hope that back gets to feeling better. I have some compressed disc in my back and each morning I can hardly walk it hurts so badly, but once I get up and get moving, I'm good. Last week the pool was closed at my gym due to the big Summer clean up, and then on Friday until this morning the entire gym was closed down for the Summer clean up. So I did not get to go to the pool at all last week, and I have to say my hip hurt much less. Now I am wondering if the pool is perhaps aggravating my hip. Going to go this morning and see how it feels later today.
Hope you had a good weekend. I did get that closet cleared out. emoticon

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hope you enjoy your day of, I am sure you will I love cleaning out closets you can sort out what fits you and get rid of all the stuff you have had for ages, I am not a hoarder I go through my clothes about 4 times a year.

I have been really bad with my food choices this week, I back has been very sore, every now and again it just goes out and I can't do anything so I haven't exercise and have bee eating way over points, if I don't get my act together I will put on the weight I have lost plus more, as I put on weight so easy ( I wish I could loss it as fast as I put it on).
So starting from tomorrow wether my back is bad or not I will get my act together.

Have a wonderful Sunday Joan, try and get some rest in. Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
I am so thrilled that its Sunday and I don't have to go into work today. I have to admit I am working too much, the work is not hard, it is boring, and it does take 4-5 hours from my day, but it pays very well. So I am looking forward to a day off today. Think I may get in my walk in closet and pack some of the stuff up from in there, not only will that keep me busy, but it will be activity points as well.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
WOW you do get up so early now that it is Ramadan here everyone seems to sleep during the day and and stay up all night, it isn't unusual for my husband to get called to a meeting at 2-3am so that means we are having very late nights and sleeping late in the mornings it is a very strange life here.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend and it is good you are getting plenty of rest your body must need it.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, hope you have a fun weekend planned. Oh my I love cheese, and just like you I can totally over do that. I have to be really careful especially with colby cheese, my all time favorite. Its everything in moderation, but most time ''moderation'' is not in my mind. Need to work on that. Something I have found out this past week since the pool has been closed and I've not been going to the gym and that is, I have been sleeping a bit later. Instead of getting up at 2 or 2:30 am, its been more like 4 am. I know that is still super early, but I have to admit I am feeling much more rested.
Have a great weekend Rosie.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I cannot tell you how many times that has happen to me, write a nice long post and boom its gone. Drives me crazy.
Nothing new here, I did go get my haircut yesterday, love it. Then I had to go back over to Benny and Roselee's to help interview a woman they are thinking of using, and she was a very nice lady.
Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
I had to laugh when I read your post and you wrote Hoover Dam, lol lol....its Beaver Dam. lol lol. Not a problem due to a lot of people have me moving to Wisconsin since there is a Beaver Dam in Wisconsin. lol lol.

So proud of you that you are able to have a treat on the weekends and can stop, I can't seem to get more than two or three days before I fall off the wagon. I was looking at my calendar yesterday and Tuesday was a year ago when I started my getting off sugar journey, only to have it sabotaged, which is no one fault but mine due to I should have just gotten back on track, so I take responsibility for all of it, except the deception of a so called friend.

Have a wonderful day, and stay strong.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hope the storm passes soon, yesterday after I posted I went back and read all the posts I have missed out on, and I see that you did look at a few house while you were in Hoover Dam. I hope one comes up in September that you can move right into.

Glad you made it back safe, have a lovely day.

Love Rosie.

Hi Joan,

I am back emoticon So nice you had some days away, it must of been good for you to get to Beaver Dam did you look around for any houses to rent. Good on you staying sugar free well done.
I have been pretty good I am still sticking to just having a sweet thing on Saturdays so I am so pleased with my self, I still know I can't have it in the house but to know I can go out one day a week and have a treat I am happy with that.

Its Ramadan here at the moment and it is very quite, everyone starts going out about 9pm at night and that is when the shops open they stay open till 2am.

Have a wonderful day Joan and it is so nice to be back. Love Rosie.

Hi Kate, so glad you found mine and Rosie's ''Getting UnSweet" thread. From time to time Rosie and I have had people to stop by and they are always welcomed, but Rosie and I are the diehards we come by just about everyday to post something, whether its good or not so good. Sweet Rosie has over 100 consecutive days of being without sugar, and that is no easy task. I know for myself, I feel so much better when I am not eating all that sugary junk stuff, candy, cookies, ice cream, etc. However, sugar has always been my drug of choice, and I do great once I get off the stuff, but if I ever get a taste, its all over and done with. So again today I recommit myself to my sugar free journey.

Love,
Joan

Now I have a lifelong image of a Home Invasion by 4 Boxes of Candy!

Oh, jelly beans... They are on my Hazardous Materials list. I simply cannot buy them because I act totally stupid: counting them out for points, then gobbling them up and counting more, etc. I know there is zero nutritional value!

There are other sweet things that I can stare down without a problem (good thing because DH keeps bringing more in!). My biggest defense is having a list of foods that I need to eat to have balanced nutrition, and reaching for them instead of the empty stuff, my daily checklist! I read about the vitamins on the nutrition report, and imagine how fine my health might be once I got the knack of things.

The more balanced my nutrition, the less I crave sweets. That's how it works for me. If I "must" have something like jelly beans, I buy a single snack-size bag. If I don't want to track it, I don't put it into my mouth.

My doctor asked me to go sugar free a few years ago. I haven't committed to that yet, as I don't believe that a teaspoon of sugar in each of 2 cups of coffee has led to my present weight. Indeed, lack of portion control and lack of exercise have created my current size. I may have to change my tune -- will know after my July labs.

As for stress, acknowledge it. Identify something you can do about it. If you cannot change it, learn to accept it and plan accordingly (yes, the Serenity Prayer). Do something silly (not food-related) to remind yourself to feed your sense of humor. Laugh at yourself, love yourself, respect yourself.

And I say, "Some days you just have to get through." And that is enough.

Hi Rosie,
so glad you checked in and let me know you were going to be away for a few days. Hope you enjoy your time away. Coty came up early yesterday morning and we got a lot of stuff done yesterday which was really good. He will be heading back home as I go to the gym this morning. Stay well, and have a great few days away.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Just dropping in quickly today to let you know I will be away for about 7 days I will try and see if I can come on here during that time but I very much doubt it. I will be back next Tues-Wed.

Have a great week and hope you get to go away for the long weekend to Beaver Dam.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I bet your having internet problems again. nothing to report here. Hope you and your DH are enjoying your weekend. I'm going out to breakfast with one of Bob's daughter-in-laws and Coty this morning, and that should be fun. Wishing you a great weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
my Great Nephew Coty is coming up either this afternoon or he's getting up really early tomorrow morning and coming up. He was going to come up today, but he had a tree in his back yard that needs to be cut down, its dead and he does not want to risk the wind blowing it over on his house, and I can't blame him for that. It will be good to see him, and then next Friday I"m going down to Beaver Dam for a long weekend, I need a few days away from everything up here.
Rosie have a great weekend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I also put to much power on those scales, I can see I have lost weight by my clothes but I love to see the scales go down.

We will have a successful week Joan because we can do this.

Have a great weekend, Love Rosie.

We can do this Rosie. I left the story in the other thread about the power being off at the center were we have our weight in and WW meeting. Long story short, the power was off so no one could weigh in. I have to admit it was a nice surprise cause I think sometime we put too much into that number, or at least I know I do. Here's to a new day, new week and lets make it a successful one.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
All the best on your weigh in today. It's nice you can go to your meetings and catch up on whats been happening at WW's and meeting up with all your friends.

I have been pretty good with my food, and my exercise I am trying to make sure I get at least 10,000 steps in a day, and writing down everything that I eat I am on 26 points a day but I find if I have that many everyday I don't loss weight so I eat 20-26 a day. I am on a mission to get rid of my last 14pounds. I set a goal to get to 138pounds and I am only 4pounds away from that then I will set another goal to loss 10 more pounds then I will be in the healthy weight graph. Little steps at a time.

We can do this Joan, we have till the end of September we are strong and we want give up.

"The only way to fail is to quit trying"

Have a great day Love Rosie

Hi Rosie,
today is my WW meeting day. I have not done well with my food this week as I had planned, but I will face up to everything.

I worked out in the pool with my trainer yesterday, I am so sore this morning, but its a good sore. Here is to a better week. We can do this.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
I know I can't have it around me, I always look forward to Saturday treat day I hope I keep going like I am and only have it once a week but I just know not to bring it in the house, and when I go out now I take a container of grapes and I have them as my sweet treat.

Have a great day Joan,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I can tell such a difference in the way my body is feeling since I have been doing the pool exercises. So will be looking forward to meeting up with Chelsea tomorrow morning.

Wish I could say I was SF yesterday, but some slipped in. just cannot have that stuff around me.

Here's to another chance to get it right.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Thats a great idea meeting with your trainer and getting a work out. I just read the Weight watchers magazine (the Australian one) and that is how one lady lost 140pounds she said she just did laps up and down the pool that was her only exercise.

Like you said today is another day and we can start again well done Joan.

Hi Rosie, how funny Krsipy Cream donuts are from right here in Louisville. For some reason people rave about those donuts but I have never seen the appeal. Give me something loaded with filling. emoticon Ever once in a while the Krispy Cream donut place will have a free donut day, you go in and they will give you a free donut. I've never done this. emoticon I am so proud of you, staying away from the sweets for six days and then just having one, way to go.

I had sweets over the weekend, have no clue why, but I did, but today is a brand new day. Oh before I forget, I'm meeting with my trainer on Wednesday for a pool workout. Today I will do the pool but it will be my own workout.

Have a great day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes we can do this what a great challenge we have I went to the shops and got lots of yummy veggies to make some salads, plus some nice fruit of cause I brought grapes, they seem to help me with the sweet cravings.

Last night we went out and had a doughnut I love crispy cream doughnuts (where I come from in Australia we don't have them there) I had my first one in Tuson Arizona. But last night when I had ate it, it didn't seem to taste all that nice, but of cause I ate all of it, but I was good I didn't go some where else to have another sweet treat. So I lasted a full 6 days last week without sweets, so I am happy with that.

Hope your weekend is going great Joan, stay strong we can do this.
Love Rosie

Rosie, you are just the best, doing this with me. Here we go get ready, get set...we are off.

Since Benny's birthday is today, I took him a gift yesterday. Now you have to remember Benny and Roselee are Jewish, but as Benny puts it "he's not a super Jew." So I made BBQ pork and bought a package of buns for him and took him 4 containers of homemade BBQ pork, something Roselee will not eat cause she does not eat pork. Benny was thrilled with this.

Here to your getting rid of those 14 pounds and me getting rid of whatever I can get rid of. We can do this and we can do this together.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,

It is great that your nephew is going to help you, it sounds like you have some lovely people there.

What a great idea to get in shape and lose some weight before you go to Beaver Dam that is a good goal to aim for, and you will feel so great that you did it.
I want to loss about 14 more pounds so I am going to do it with you, so September here we come.

have a great weekend Joan, and hope Mr Benny had a lovely day.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I have to tell you that 22 year old Great Nephew of mine (Coty) he is so thrilled at the prospects of my moving back to Beaver Dam, that everyday he is out looking for me a place to live. lol lol. I just love that kid.

Hope your weekend will be a good one, and if you go for a treat make sure it is a super duper good one. Tomorrow is Mr. Benny's 86th birthday, so today I am taking him a gift of bbq pork. He loves the bbq pork that I make, and I was going to get him a small cake and then decided, he got a lot of sweets for Father's Day just last week, he does not need a cake this week as well. So I have made the bbq pork, put it in small one serving containers, and I have this box, so going to put it in that box, and tie the ribbon around it, and BAM....instant birthday gift. emoticon

Rosie, I have decided I don't want to return to Beaver Dam at this weight, so I am going to be working super hard to try and get at least 20 pounds off before I move in September. Wish me luck, and I can do this.

Love,
Joan
