Hi Rosie,
well, yesterday (Tuesday) I went and re-joined Weight Watchers. Since my van is now paid off I have a bit more wiggle room in my budget so I felt this was a good place to use some of the funds. I feel this was a really good idea, and working toward getting back to goal. I've been off the sugar a really long time, but truth be told have been over doing it with too much other stuff, go figure, so working to get things right.
Hope things are well with you.
Love,
Joan

Dear Rosie,
so good to hear from you, I have missed you so much. So happy you are enjoying yourself, and I'm curious what holiday would they be celebrating? I know other religions celebrate other things, so I was just interested.

My two friends from Louisville came for a day visit yesterday, it was so great to see them, and we had the best time.

Keep enjoying yourself, and anytime you can find a computer check in.

Love you,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Well I finally got on the internet I didn't bring my computer with me so I am doing this on my IPad. We are still away in Dubai and we will be here for another week, I will try and come on here when ever I can.
Hope you are well you have been great keeping up with the post. It has been nice to get away and we have seen lots of movies which is a great change for us as in Saudi they don't have movie theatres plus here I can get dresses up and not have to wear a Abiya and I don't get told of by the religious police to cover my hair, it is strange here to see so many western people as we don't see many in Saudi. Also we have come at a very busy time as it's holidays here and everything is a lot more expensive the hotels are double the price, and there all full.

I hope you are looking after your self I haven't been great with my diet and I have had a cake and a chocolate bar I have to get my act together, I am well and truly out of my comfort zone.

Well I had better say goodbye for now as the internet I am on is just about to run out, thinking of you hugs to you, love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
Ruthann and I went shopping yesterday, and I finally found me some shoes that do not make my back hurt. We went to a place that specialize in feet, I told the guy that I knew I was shorter on my right side than my left so he put a lift under my right insole of the new shoe, made all the difference in the world, color me happy.
Have a friend passing through Beaver Dam this evening on her way to Owensboro and I'm making dinner for us. Rosie, my first out of town visitor I'm so excited.
Missing you, but hoping your having a great time.
Love,
Joan

Dear Rosie,
you may well be gone already if so I hope you have a wonderful trip, and I'll keep posting each day so when you are able to get on here you'll be able to catch up with what's been going on in my little world. Have a wonderful time and enjoy yourself, but remember the sugar is just sweet for a short time, then it makes us hate ourselves. emoticon Stay strong my sweet friend.
Love,
Joan

Hi Rosie,
well I looked at my online banking account, and my car loan has a zero balance, so that has been paid off, so far no check has shown up, but at least the van is paid off. I'll keep you posted.

We have some snow this morning, go figure.
Love,

Hi Joan,
I loved your story on the other post, I hope it all turns out for you.
I also love lasagna (really I love most food LOL)

Enjoy your time with Coty and the dog, I miss having a dog, here you see lots of cats in the street, their called street cat, there every where. You are not aloud to walk dogs here (the religious police reckon its away the boys and girls meet so it is against the law.) so anyone that has a dog has to keep it under lock and key. (that is a true story) Lots of strange things here.

Have a lovely day,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
left a story on the other thread that I think you will enjoy. I know I enjoyed getting to tell you guys about it.

Today my sister and her husband have their yearly check ups so I'm dog sitting and since Coty is on second shift I said I would cook lunch for him so he's getting lasagna today, he loves my lasagna.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
So lovely you are having some friends come and visit, you will have a great time with lots of laughs I am sure.

I have to go the shops to night and get some shopping in, I don't feel like it as it is cold outside, well what I would call cold, you would call it a lovely mild night.

Have a good day,
Love Rosis

Hey Rosie,
I also think with it being something nice and warm that also helps with the craving. Got some great news yesterday, two of my friends are coming for a day visit on the 26th of this month. I am so excited, going to start looking for recipes so I can make lunch for us while they are here.
Have a great day, suppose to be in the 30's again today, maybe we are in a warming trend. emoticon
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hot chocolate sounds lovely I will try some I love milk so that is good for me, but I might try it with almond milk for a change.

I know I shouldn't complain about the cold here, as it really is mild, but I am use to it being very hot here and I love summer. One thing though it is always sunshine here and that makes my day.

Have a great day Joan,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
So glad you all had a good time out and about this weekend. Oh my 65 degrees, that sounds like Heaven. It was 31 yesterday morning when I headed out to Ruthann's and for the last few days it had been being 1 or just 4 above zero so at 31 degrees I didn't even wear a jacket, have to admit I was wishing I had put my jacket on before the car got warm, lol lol lol.

Rosie, I miss something sweet more in the afternoon so tell you what I've been doing that has been helping me. I've been making me some hot chocolate....yep hot chocolate. I've been using almond milk or coconut milk the unsweetened kind, unsweetened coco powder, and I sweetened it with stevia Rosie, it really hits the spot for me and so far has saved me from going to the grocery and buying bag and bags of cookies and candy. Also the almond or coconut milk both have calcium in them which my body needs and I'm not a milk drinker, but if you like milk I see no reason you couldn't make it with just regular milk. So just a thought.

Raining here this morning, at least its not snow and ice.
Love,
joan

Hi Joan,
Yes we had a nice weekend, just went for a drive and looked around at the shops it was nice.

The winters here are very mild today was 65, but it was cold to me, at least the sun was shinning. You must be laughing at me if I think that is cold compared to how cold you are having it there.

I haven't counted how many days I have been SF but it does feel good to be of the stuff, sometimes I want to have something sweet, some days are harder then others.

Stay warm, Love Rosie.

Hi Joan,
Hope Mr King fixes those windows and doors he may do it if you asked him. The winter isn't really that bad here it's 64 today but I feel cold I think because the summers are really hot.

The dust is really bad here today so I don't think we will be going out to do some shopping we will see how it goes tomorrow.

Have a great weekend keep warm.

Hey Rosie,
my house is warm, but I have to admit it could be warmer. Its a really old house probably built in the early 50's. Hum, maybe I should call it ''really old'' since I was build in 1952 emoticon anyway it has the old windows in it, and then they added a room on from the kitchen and it has a sliding glass door, and I can tell there is a lot of air that comes in there, the past two days I've kept the drapes closed on that to keep the heat in. But Rosie, I love this old house, just wish Mr. King would put in better windows and a new sliding door in the back. Something to pray about. emoticon

The recipe I told you about using the turkey sausage instead of ham, well that was great. So when I now make this recipe I will always replace the meat with turkey sausage instead of ham. You know I also think just to make it all veggie would be good, I already added chopped onions and spinach, but I could also add chopped peppers, and if you like mushrooms, which I don't a person could add those as well. So many things one could do with this recipe.
Have a wonderful day.
Great job on the steps.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
That is cold brrrrrrrrrrrrr do you have good heating, I think the best place to beis inside in a nice warm room reading a good book, or watching a great movie.
Let me know how your recipe goes.

Did 12,000 steps to day was very happy with that I am aiming for 70,000 steps a week so some days I get more then others, they all add up.

Have a great day, it is cold here but not nearly as cold as you have it, and the sun is always shinning, today we did have sand storms, but this time of the year its normal.

Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
I never thought about the pork where you are, but it does make sense. Here in the U.S. anything is a go. I'm giving the turkey sausage a try this morning, I'll have a report on that tomorrow.
It is so cold here, when I turned on the weather channel it was 3 above zero...burrrr. I think I shall be spending another day inside today.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
That recipe sounds wonderful I will make it for sure can't have the ham in it as you can't get any thing to do with pork here (even if you watch TV and something comes on about pork it is beeped out) but you can get turkey meat here so I will try that.

Have a great day,

Love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
I may have to look into one of those pedometers, or maybe first I"ll ask Ruthann if she has one laying around, I bet she does. Thanks for the idea.

Rosie, it is so darn cold here this morning and only going to get colder, I so don't like Winter anymore. I did go get my haircut yesterday, at least that is done for another six weeks. Have a wonderful day.

Oh I made this new recipe yesterday, and it was delicious.

I took 6 eggs, salt, pepper, beat them until frothy. drained a 10 oz. can of rotel diced tomatoes with chilies added those, (the recipe did not call for this, but I chopped up about a cup of fresh spinach and added that as well) 1 cup of shredded cheese (your choice) I had cheddar, and a cup of diced ham, mix all this together put it in a 8x8 baking dish bake at 400 degrees for 26 minutes, after that turn off oven and let it set in the oven 5 or 10 minutes. Makes 4 nice size servings.

As soon as it was done I took a serving out to Ruthann and she loved it. Next time I make it I'm going to add diced onions and use turkey sausage instead of chopped ham.

Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Well done on the exercise if you could get a pedometer you will be amazed how many steps you get in, I am sure Wal-mart would sell them at a good price, as I know you can get dear ones and cheap ones there all good.

I have also got into exercise today I did 12,000 steps, I try and get at least 10,000 steps or more 6 days a week.

Stay strong Joan,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I did the WAP tape again yesterday, and I was sore from the day before, which I guess is a good thing. emoticon I'm going to do the 1 mile for a week then move up to the two mile but I may have to ease myself into the two mile one and do it maybe every other day until I get better at it. We shall see. You have inspired me Rosie. emoticon Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan.
I know you can get some raw stevia I don't know if that is the same as brown sugar, but I know what you mean about portion control. I do have a coffee everyday, with stevia and I only need a little bit as it is very sweet.

Hope the weather doesn't get to bad be safe,
Love Rosie.

Rosie so happy to see you back and so happy to read you had such a great time. I had thought about making cookies using stevia, but its brown sugar she uses and I did not know if you could get brown sugar in stevia, then again there is that portion control thing, so maybe its just best I stay away.....now with that being said I did figure out a way to make me some hot chocolate yesterday. I took Almond milk, plain coco powder and used stevia and a dash of salt, I have to say it turned out really good and the one cup was very satisfying, I did not want anymore, and I did not have sugar. Go ME!!!! Have a GREAT day my friend. We are heading for some brutal cold weather for the next few days, so I shall be staying close to home for sure.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Yes we had a great time, we went to Dammon which is a city in Saudi Arabia which is by the sea, so it was nice just walking and driving along the coast, I still had to wear my Abiya when I went out, but I felt more free I think it was the sea air and just looking at the sea which made me feel like that.

Hope the year 2015 brings you lots of joy, and how wonderful is it to know that we got through all those celebration's without giving into sugar. I was wondering if you could make your sisters oatmeal cookie's with stevia in stead of sugar.

Have a great day Joan, I am trying to catch up on all the posts I missed out on.
Love Rosie.

Hey Rosie,
I almost caved yesterday. I went to Ruthann's she made homemade vegetable soup for lunch, and she called and said, ''come on out," problem was she did not tell me she was making her famous pan oatmeal cookies, they are not your ordinary oatmeal cookies. I did not succumb to any but I have to tell you I really wanted to. She made a turtle cake the other day, chocolate cake and on the bottom chocolate chips and melted caramels that didn't phase me in the least, but those oatmeal cookies, those just about sent me over the edge, but I escaped them.

I did get my lights installed over my kitchen sink and under the one kitchen cabinet, so much more light, just what I needed.

Hope your trip is still going well.

Love,
Joan

Happy New Years Eve Rosie.
Went yesterday with Coty and had my eyes examined, have not had that done in years. I used to wear glasses and some years ago I had Lasix surgery so I had wondered if maybe my eyes were changing. Good news I still don't need glassed and the doc said my eyes were very healthy no sign of cataracts either, which I was concerned about. So all good news.
Enjoy your time away.
Love,
Joan

Rosie, if you do go away have a wonderful time. I did post pictures in my blog, I think the couch and chair really look good in my den. Yesterday Coty called me and I went up to his house after his new stuff had been delivered and his new furniture looks great in his house as well. So we are both happy.
Have a great adventure, and hear from you when you return.
Love,
Joan

Good morning Rosie,

We did get the furniture moved yesterday and it does look really good in my den, and I will take some pictures of it today and put them in my blog. I have to say Coty did take really good care of his stuff.

Hope you have a great day today Rosie.

Hi Joan,
You must feel excited getting all new furniture how lovely of Coty to give you it. You will have to take more photos so we can see it all.

Did about 12,000 steps today, yesterday I did 10,000 trying to get 70,000 steps a week or more.

Have a great day,
Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie, the way you describe the tents it sounds like what I have seen in movies, but I still don't think I want to live in a tent. lol lol. What an experience you are getting being in another country, just be and stay safe.
It rained here off and on all day yesterday. Coty and Ruthann got my couch out of my house and to the consignment place, probably this afternoon, we will move his couch up here to my house and then tomorrow move his recliner up here, still don't know what I'll do with my old recliner, its really thread bear. lol.

Have a wonderful day.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Sounds like your day was busy but a happy one.

We had a nice day we went for a drive the house's here are huge and there are thousands of them it is a very rich country and growing very fast. There are still a lot of desert people living in the desert in their tents with their camels we stopped in one to take some photos, the people there are very friendly and they love visitors their tents are amazing and they have lived like that for thousands of years.

Hope the rest of your day is nice love Rosie.

Good morning Rosie,
I had a busy day yesterday with Ruthann, the later on went furniture shopping with Coty. That was fun, I love furniture shopping. He got himself with his Christmas money a nice living room outfit and I am getting his old one which is not all that old. My couch is 16 years old and he's taking it to a consignment shop for them to sell and I told him he could have the money they get for it. So as I said yesterday was a busy day, have no clue what today will be like, but that is the exciting thing, not knowing, lol lol.
Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan

OOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh YUMMY red velvet cake, sooooooooooo proud of you saying no to that, as I am sure I would of had a piece covered in cream,( well maybe before I embarked on this no sugar journey I would of) but now I know I could say no thank you.
We both know if we have a little piece it would just keep us wanting more and more.

I am so happy you enjoyed your day yesterday, most of all I am so happy you have moved to Beaver Dam you have so much to be thankful for being around your family and I can tell in your posts you are so much more content. SO PROUD OF YOU my lovely friend.

Love Rosie.

Hi Rosie,
I had such a great day at Ruthann's yesterday and so very proud of myself that I did not eat any sweets at all. Ruthann had made chocolate pies and a Red Velvet cake and I was not sure if I could resist the pies, but I did and I really felt victorious. I kept thinking about what I had told you Rosie, ''how badly we know that stuff makes us feel." Going to write some thank you notes today, have to set the garbage out for pick up today and I think that may well be all I do today, lol lol. Have a wonderful day my friend, and so glad your kids and grandkids phoned you, that is so sweet.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
So proud of you keeping away from all that temptation, I know this time of the year is hard for a lot of people sticking to their plan, but it's harder for you as you are also keeping away from sugar.

Had a nice day today, my grandkids and kids phoned me and it is always so nice hearing from them mind you I try and keep the tears at bay as when I hear their voices and how much they miss me it's always hard to hear. But I just love hearing their voices, so that was a lovely day for me.

Hope the rest of your day went well, love Rosie

Good morning Rosie,
so far so good, I have stayed away from the chocolate pie and the red velvet cake. Patting myself on the back, so keeping fingers crossed that I can do the same today, I think I can, but will keep my guard up all the same, I know I cannot trust myself. Have a wonderful day. Oh by the way....it rained all day yesterday, today we are suppose to have sunshine, I am so ready for that.
Love,
Joan

Hi Joan,
Hope the weather clear's up for you and it doesn't rain to much. Do you have much snow there this time of year?

I brought my pedometer about 4 years ago from WW's and it has been going every since I really like this one. Did about 17,000 steps today, as long as I get 10,000 or over a day I will be happy, if I don't get 10,000 steps in a day, I keep walking around the house till I do it keeps me motivated when I wear one.

Love Rosie.

emoticon Rosie, on those 20,000 steps, emoticon job. I used to wear my pedometer all the time and when it broke I never could find one I liked as well so never got another one, but I may look into that for the new year. We had rain all day yesterday, and looks like it might be raining out there again this morning, at least its not snow. Hope your day will be a good one.
Love,
Joan
p.s. Keep up the great work with the exercise.

Hi Joan,
So glad your friends son made in home safely, he was in my prayers, it is always a worry when our young ones are on the roads traveling .

Hope you have a great day.

I got all my exercise in today did 2 and half hours, got in over 20,000 steps, I like to wear my pedometer everyday it helps me get my steps in, I do aim for 10,000 steps or more a day, they reckon 10,000steps a day is very good for your health.

Love Rosie

Rosie, thanks for the prayers Dana's son made it home around 5 p.m. yesterday. I could almost hear a sigh of relief in her last email to me. lol lol.

Ruthann and I got out really early yesterday morning and got the grocery shopping done and it was already super busy out. I put a chicken in my crockpot last night to cook so I could pull the meat off the bone for the dressing, so have to do that after my shower this morning. Going to be a busy next few days. Raining out there right now. Hope your day will be a good one.

Love,
Joan

Rosie, need prayer today for my friend Dana's son. He is traveling from Maryland by himself, and he's been having some car problems. He's young 21 (I think) he's Dana's only child, so you can only imagine how worried she is, so if you would just send up a prayer for his safe trip I would so appreciate it and I know Dana would as well, and I will keep you posted on his arrival.

Had a great time with Coty, Ruthann and Terry yesterday, then Coty came back last night with me a new DVD player for my TV in the den. I was going to buy myself one, but just had not done it yet, so that was not only a surprise but so sweet of him. Today, Ruthann is going to call me when she head to the grocery store so I can meet her up there to help her with the grocery shopping for Christmas. Glad we are going it today since its suppose to rain tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day.
Love,
joan

Hey Rosie,
just a reminder ''we both know how the rubbish makes us feel when we eat it," so just keep that in mind and that may help you make it past January 1st. You've done so well, and to go back to the junk would we really be giving ourselves a reward? Just something to think about.

Oh Rosie, it is so nice living so close to my sister, and to be able to have them come and share Sunday dinner with me, or if during the day I want to go visit her, take a five minute drive instead of a 2 hour drive...priceless.

Enjoy your day.
Love,
Joan

Thanks Rosie. I am just so honored that the aide asked me to sit with Ms. Ralph, I would have hated the idea that she passed all alone. No one should ever have to do that. Hope you have a good weekend. I'm having my family over tomorrow for more potato soup, so going to do a little housework today.
