We only have antenna TV. We do have a subscription to netflix but otherwise get by with just normal stations. We don't watch a ton of TV so it works fine for us.
It was a little warmer here today so was really quite nice. It is supposed to stay dry for a few days so that should help.

We have had Dish network forever out here also. We live in the country so it is what we have to have to watch much of anything. Though now a days you can get a bunch of channels without much of anything. But of course the ones we want to watch are on cable.


It has turned chilly here. 50's at night. We went from summer temps to fall temps over night.


Today is football morning so time is short. I thought we had a late game but it is early again. Oh well gives me more afternoon time to maybe get something done. Then again if I don't do it first thing it may wait till tomorrow.


Have a great day ladies.

I'm glad you made the switch to a different provider. There are a lot of old legacy cable companies that got small franchises, but aren't up to the demands of the modern world. If your area is a big enough market, maybe they'll be bought out by one of the big companies. We can't do dish here, we live in the woods and there are too many trees, but if you have good exposure to the sky, you'll be thrilled.

It's raining again here, and cold. I'll have to suck it up and turn on the heat, I hate having to accept that warm weather is gone for another year.

Nell you asked what cable company I was with, it was Spectrum. I've had cable from the time cable came out. I have to say I was a bit leery about going to Direct TV, mainly because its new and I"d have to learn things, but the guys that came were super great about explaining things and the internet guy didn't leave until he made sure everything on my computer was working and even the printer would print. So far I'm well satisfied, and when I called Spectrum, they said, ''give us a change to work with you." I told them listen to your taped conservation's I've had with customer service and you'll find out I've called several times in the past week trying to get a better deal, and now its too late, I'm moved on. Just send me the boxes to mail your stuff back to you." emoticon
Have a great weekend everyone stay safe and stay warm, its 38 here this morning, burrrr.

Those satellite remotes are intimidating, but you'll get it. Here in a highly populated area, the cable companies rush to make repairs. They can lose too many customers too quickly otherwise. Doesn't Direct TV offer some of those great sports packages? Who is your current cable provider? Our area has Comcast by monopoly, but the lines were laid over 50 years ago and are failing. When FIOS arrived (outside the monopoly) most of us jumped at it.

The board meeting last night was OK, only one problem person and he wasn't even an owner. And he brought his toddler to a budget meeting. The heavy rain kept most people away, thank goodness. This afternoon I have a highlight and haircut, more blonde will always lift a mood.

Yep, fall is finally showing its temperature change! The little dog did his business just as fast as he could this morning, and ran back to the house faster than I could keep up with him.
Hope Direct works well for you, Joan. We are so far out so there is little choice. Direct or Dish is about it. Internet is through the phone company and pretty unreliable. The only thing reliable is that we will get a bill every month.

Expecting loads of family here for the next week, so if I'm missing on the post, you'll know why. Probably late sleepers, so it may all work out.

Nell, I sure hope your not without power, but I've seen the numbers for North Carolina, Virginia, and some other area's and I'd say your probably in the group as well. Stay safe, the cold weather is heading your way.

Michelle, be careful with all that rain, and I know you will be careful.

Can't make the TOPS meeting today because the AT&T people are coming to put my Direct TV in today. I've been a cable customer ever since I moved out on my own and that has been a lot of years ago, but this last time its broken the camel's back. So I'm changing, I just hope I can learn all the new buttons and such, which both my sister's have promised me they will come and teach me, because they both have direct in their homes.

Everyone have a great Friday, I've gotten stuff in for making a nice pot of soup, since tonight the temps are to drop down in the 30's, now that is just way to cold for October.

Glad you're safe, Michelle! And so glad none of us was where the storm hit the hardest.

Hope your newest break-out is easily and quickly controlled with the $85 cream, Joan. The events of the last month have tested your resolve, but I have no doubt you will find your way back, and lose the rest of your weight, Joan.

Exasperating to be without power, Nell, but exasperating to find a way to restore it and pay for the restoration, too.

Thanks for the laugh to start the morning, Jane T. Thanks for laughing at yourself enough to share the story, too.

Got the lawn mowed and the car cleaned yesterday. I slept well last night! Camryn got her lawn mowed the day before I did, and she's still telling me about it. I hate to mow the grass when it's wet, but that has been the story this summer. Today we have rain, so I'm glad I got it done yesterday!

Safe is my word of the day. Really all we had was winds and rain. The winds actually weren't too bad. It did blow the rain up under the roof somehow of our garage and water got in but nothing too bad. I headed to work as usual and by the time I left last night it was nice and calm with no rain.

Have a great day ladies.

We'll be getting rain today, I hope it rains hard this evening. I have a condo board meeting tonight, it will be really bad because of all the power problems we've had. It's expensive to repair, no one wants to hear about it, so they just scream and make threats. I won't be eating dinner tonight, I have learned that I feel sick at those things if I eat.

I think WW is trying to get more paying customers in, and there is no better way to attract people to losing weight than if you promise that they have found a tech way for it to be painless. Give me good old fashioned paper and pen, it works. If I want charms (it used to be "diamond" chips on a pin), or any other prize, I can get them myself.

Today will be warm and muggy and rainy, tomorrow fall arrives. I'm ready to turn off the air conditioning.

Jane T. something was said about ''new charms'' at my meeting this past Tuesday. Now I don't know if they've revamped the charms we were getting or if they are adding some. Also I noticed the paper towels were back on the tables for people to use. I'm hearing lots of complaints on this tracking thing, I have to be honest I'm tracking just like I always have, it worked so why change it up, I looked at their prizes and I was not all that impressed with them, but that is just me.

Quite cool here this morning our high is only going to be in the 60's today and with wind, so that will make it feel even cooler, so I've dressed in long sleeves today. emoticon

You are welcome for the chuckle ladies. I did laugh at myself at one point while eating the Bugles at my low level of desperation. LOL.
Rather than track on my phone, I wish we could earn charms again. I loved adding charms to my ring.

Jane, I know it's not funny, but it is. Cop shows always have the laugh about someone being shot in the butt, I guess a bee sting sounds the same to anyone without a sore butt.

I don't get the need for WW to require technology. The only prize I ever cared about was goal, and I don't think a fancy app is required for that. The local town center has a paid parking lot that requires a phone app to pay, so I just don't go there anymore. My notebook and pen has kept me at goal for a long time, tried and true, and readily available to anyone. When I was going to meetings, there was a woman who used 3x5 index cards to track. She said she had a ton of them so put them to good use. Unless an app rips the cheetos out of my hands, it wouldn't be worth the grief.

Joan, keep at it, the steroids will wear off at some point. I just hope the pain doesn't return.

Hurricane Michael looks like it's going to be really bad. I hope everyone left in time.

Oh my Lord, Jane T. next time give me a warning that coffee is going to flying from reading one of your stories. Brings back memories of when my dad popped down in a rocking chair at the farm to put his shoes on and sat on a Hornet, OMG, we laughed, but not until he was out of earshot. Oh yes, I know exactly what you mean stale Bugles or anything else we with food addictions we don't care how much mold or dust is on something.

Blanche, I was not thrilled at all with our meeting yesterday and as much as I love our leader, who by the way will always be leader to me tried to convince us how great this is going to be. Now I have looked over their prizes, and I did not see one thing I'd be interested in, but I'll still be tracking, other thing is its not fair to those that do not use the computer and we even have some that have a phone but it won't let them download the app. I think our leader said you needed at least a 4 or higher for it to work. I agree with Jane that its a feeling of moving away from what WW's was started out to be. Just sayin'.

Weigh in was nothing to be proud of so I'll just leave it at that. I'm regrouping my head has been out of the game a bit. Oh and if that is not enough got up this morning and I have a small red spot on the top of my left foot, that is itching like blue blazes just like the one on my right foot started out, so I'll be calling the Derm again. Lord, I'm falling apart a piece at a time. emoticon

I gave up on the technology when the WW site would accept my password some of the time, and refuse it part of the time. It was just too frustrating to deal with.

Your tale of the bee sting was hilarious to read. Not so hilarious had it been my butt! At least you can laugh about it! And let us in on it!

A late check in for me. @KENTUCKYWOMAN ,Joan, so sorry for the loss of Effie. It sounds like she had some good friends in the TOPS group and will be missed.

@MALEXANDER4 , Michelle, that is crazy that you met your 10,000 steps before lunch! Congrats!

Yesterday, hubby and I were cleaning out the boat and getting ready to take it out of the water which we did this afternoon. I ended up sitting on a bee. Yup I got a bee sting in my butt. And can I just say it hurt like the devil. I was down below shouting up to my husband who was driving back from the dock. I dropped my shorts to have a look the best I could. I scraped it with a clean cottage cheese lid sitting on the table to get the stinger out while I rummaged for the first aid kit all while my shorts were hanging at my ankles and my hubby was shouting are you alright? I pinched it and scraped again. I found some insect bite wipes in the kit and swabbed it good. It still hurt so I grabbed a frozen water bottle. I stood there with the ice on my butt and then started to frantically search for a leftover bottom of the bag of Bugles corn chips I had seen leftover from a couple weeks ago.

Can I just say what a pathetic sight I was. Standing in my underwear with an ice bottle on my butt, soothing my rattled soul with a bag of stale Bugle crumbs. emoticon Well if that does not scream food addict! I had the points. I owned it and I tracked it......I just had to share that little moment of reality with you all.

To the ladies who are WW paper trackers, donít give up just yet. I say we ask about options. You are NOT the only ones. There are many paper trackers out there. It was stated at our meeting that you could still track on paper, you just could not earn the Win points for prizes. I resist technology all the time. We just do not agree, and I end up messing things up. I am determined to learn this app just to prove to myself I can do it.

Have a great night ladies emoticon

Sorry to hear about Effie. It's always hard to lose someone.
I worry that WW is moving farther away from their roots and leaving those behind that don't use technology. I have been using the computer to track but I know it's not for everyone and I resisted it for a long time.

Last night's WW meeting was taken up completely with the new program and how to access it, work it, etc. Leaves those of us who are not planning to do the electronic program without much of a meeting. My experience with the WW app is less than pleasing, so I am not doing the new program. Leaves me wondering if my time with WW is coming to an end.

Sorry to hear about Effie, Joan. Any member of a group that you've become close to will be missed.

I'm so sorry about Effie, Joan. I guess Friday will be a memorial. How many are in the group now? Good luck at WW. The steroid weight should be starting to come off by now, but it will still take awhile.

Michelle, way to go with the steps. Your tennis shoes must have been smoking. emoticon

Good morning everyone.
It is great to have a place to come and not be judged. So many times when there's a thread such as the one we have here, there will be at least one or two that feel the need for drama. I'm so glad we do not have to deal with that.

Today is WW's so will find out all about the ''new'' stuff. Since its Fall break here I have to wonder if we will have very many people there today.

Our TOPS groups lost one of our member's last night. Ms. Effie, she had not been doing well for well over a year maybe even longer. She is no longer in pain. I think she was 86 or 87.

PT went great yesterday, and I'll go again Wednesday and I had all my Thursday appointments changed to Friday afternoon's. No more of that back to back stuff that is just way too hard on the body.

Have a great day everyone, stay positive.

Wow when you hit your 10000 steps by lunchtime you know you've been moving at work. What a day. But in a busy good way. Yeah it is sometimes stressful but all in all not terrible.

You ladies are my lifeline somedays. I thank you for that. Nothing like a great judge free zone to come and just be you.

Have a great day.

Beth I read more than I post also. Sometimes a quick hello is all I've got. Most days I feel like a sham just being on here with the ladies who follow through. But like you i'm not giving up just yet. I have good days and bad and seems sometimes I just throw up my hands in defeat because I can't get started. But today is a new day, and each day i'm faced with a new beginning. How I end it is all up to me.


Have a safe and wonderful day ladies.

A new day, a new week.

Foggy out this morning, I still can't get used to it being dark till after 7. Right about now I'm ready for daylight savings to be over.

I see there's another tropical storm getting ready to come up from the gulf, soaking the Carolinas yet again, the last thing we need. We'll get some rain out of it later this week.

Have a great holiday Monday!

I have PT this morning but have learned my lesson on NOT doing PT back to back. That was my decision and I'd say the PT people figured, ''we will let her figure it out for herself." Live and learn.
Hope everyone had a good weekend. Here's to a new day, a day to get it right. emoticon

This post is just what I needed today. I have been struggling the past few days and needed the reminder to not give up. Here's hoping for the rest of the day to be great for everyone.

Michelle, you knew what you were going to be facing, and you did have a plan. It is life and sometimes life is not picture perfect, nor is our eating. I'm proud of you. emoticon

Beth, so good to see a post from you. Hang in there my friend. emoticon

Have been so tempted to give up. But I'm still here logging in and reading every day even if I don't post much

Yesterday we left for the Football game really early Like 7am early. So my daughter stopped to get breakfast. You guessed it Mcdonald's but I tracked it and we moved on. My next meal was with lunch and with the heat I was just not so hungry. So it worked out. But knowing we would be eating there helped me to plan for it and move on. I had weeklies so all was good.

This journey is about living. Sometimes life will get in the way and we have to make some changes. Yes I could of ate the oatmeal and fruit and yogurt cup, but really? Not for me. So I had what I liked and knew I would have to plan for the rest of the day.

Have a wonderful Sunday ladies.

We all come out on the other side of any problem. I choose to come out thin.

Have a great day all!

"Note to Self: "

BUT, I'm not allowed to give up.
It will all get done somehow. Just BREATH.
REMEMBER:
WE cannot change yesterday, but we can change today."

It's time to take charge of our journey. Yes, we will find the detours and potholes and just life that will always be there, and will always drive us crazy, and that is fine.....BUT....Giving up is never the answer, in fact I don't even see it as an option.

STAY STRONG my Friends. emoticon
