Had A Good Weigh-In

Saturday, May 26, 2012

I lost 3# and that makes me very happy. It tells me my small loss last week wasn't how much I ate but what I ate the day before. I was careful about too salty foods the night before. Counting calories will work. Plus I set a timer for 20 minutes when ever I eat to try to eat slower.
Bill took Roxy to vets for her bath today and I like Petco better. Cost the same only get a coupon for $5 to use next time at Petco. But vets is much closer.
We went to Wal-Mart to get me a new bra. As you know I rank that up there with getting a bathing suit. I had a article that told how to get right size.Well I must not have done it right as my floppy boobs did not fit. So I came home and went to JMS web site. They told how to do it just a little different and I think it will work. So I ordered one and have my fingers crossed.
We got some hummingbird water that is ready to go so we don't have to mix any.
Then we both got Bubba Cups. I have 3 sizes and I love mine.One big one for house and one that will fit in car holder.Plus a small one.The car one is if we take a trip which we seldom do so it is like new.But big one isn't sealing so good. Bill decided he wanted one as he knows they keep things cold for long time. The size is deceiving. It says they are 32 oz but that must be without any ice. As I know with ice if you put one 16 oz soda in it you are about 2 inches from top.So it actually holds about 20 oz of liquid with ice in it.You can not put in dishwasher.
The green one is mine

The butterflies love coneflowers.There is a big one on it right now but can't take a good pic thru window this time of day

Roxy likes to sit in grass and check out everything

This plant has liked the rain as it has flowers all over

This is for Patti. Plant is bigger with few seeds

This desert rose was almost dead when we brought it to the back and now it is ready to go back out front with others. Ok no pic.I have tried 6 times and it won't download it. I will try tomorrow

    Congratulations on the weight loss. Just so you won't feel bad, the BWhas a terrible time finding a bra that fits and feels right, so it's not a rare problem.

    Where do you get those bubba cups. Funny thing, I was just talking about them with the gal that cuts my hair. She said they were great because they stay cool for so long and no sweating. The cups not you. LOL. I think she said Menards but I forget.

    Hi Eleni.........
    emoticon on your 3# weight loss. I have to get back on track and keep better calorie counts. The minute I have a bit of stress in my life, I slide and even though it isn't a major gain, there is no loss either.
    Our dogs do the same thing. They are guardians of the lawn!!! Nothing goes through without their approval. I know that the dogs are the only reason we have as many flowers as we do. The deer go around us instead of through......
    I am hearing more thunder in the distance. We have had rain and storms for 3 nights in a row now. I am NOT complaining! We need the rain bad!!! After our heat wave in March, all of my flowers are way ahead of schedule. At this rate, we won't have anything left but Cleome by July! Your Cleome look very healthy. If you would send me another cutting from Big Mama, I would gladly pay the postage. The two that I have been nursing along, just aren't doing anything. They are very pale and I don't think I can save them. If I sent them back to you, they would probably pull through and look like Big Mama in a very short time.
    Will close for now. Take care.

Thanks for sharing as mine aren't blooming yet. I do have a beautiful clematis, though~maybe I should take a picture of it. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
