Well I'm within a pound to get back to my lowest of last week. I'm determined to reach 150's by the time we leave for MN and will be taking a road trip from AZ to MN eating out all 3 (or more) meals a day!!!

159 by May 15! (not much but better than what I've been doing)

Thanks for all the enouragement...I'm listening...:)

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I finally worked down to 161 (after a long time goal of getting back to the 150's) so almost there...then went on a 3 day group trip to Tucson with the hiking group (I don't hike but like to go with DH). We signed up for the group activities which included dinners together...arguh...

DH and I share dinners but I still felt over eating with nothing healthy menus.

Now we've been back two days and my weight has settled to a 2 pound gain emoticon so I have to really get back to work on it.

We are snowbirds and will be leaving AZ for MN mid-May...My goal was to be in the 150's by the time we leave... and it still is but I just made it harder to achieve...

After a 3 day vacation with a group of about 50 and eating (it seemed) non stop I was only up 2 pounds this AM - to 163. I do not think that is all a gain so expect to be down from that tomorrow, however I do think I gained some and won't see 161 for a few more days...

DH and I shared all dinners, but not together for lunch even tho we both ate sparelingly - it was the plentiful snacks in-between...arguh... Jackie

I gained 2 lbs, I'm 171. I just went out of control, enjoying the sun and working around the yard.
Between those 2 things and knowing BBQ season is back, I know I'm in trouble. At least I can say I was doing what I most enjoy, and that's working in the garden.

Anyway, I have 11 more days till the end of this month to redeem myself.

I hope everyone else is seeing better weather!

Well, I got down to 161.6 on Monday. ( I promised a friend I'd be in the 150's by next week!!! which is a lie).

On Monday I was happy tho... then comes Tuesday... and Happy Hour at our complex...most everybody orders pizza but, we are wise to NOT order pizza except then others offer us to join them because their pizza is so large ...arguh... we end up joining them in pizza...so this moring I started a pound up from Monday...

Now I'm making plans for a 4 day mini-trip with Butch's hiking group. All 50+ of us (some non hikers taking advantage of the fun stuff) have signed up for group dinners and the rest of the eating schedule will be eating hotel breakfasts and fast foods - or whatever we choose ... I hope to choose wisely but is it harder to do with restaurant menus...I'll stay tuned ... and will include some short hikes to get rid of the mass of calories I anticipate...:)

Stayed the same at 169.0.

MY daughters are crazy about Halloween and we decorate like it is Christmas. I usually kick-in to Halloween and Christmas spirit about 1 week before the day. I wait because the rain tends to mess up the cobwebs.

We used to have a neighbor that would compete on adding more decorations, until he moved. Which was sad, because the rest of the neighbors are minimal on their decorations. Kids and parents love to come to our house from other parts of the area, just to see our decorations.

Canning tomatoes into Pasta sauce and Salsa, went so well, I started 10 tomato plants, in the last 2 weeks. Now the waiting begins, to see how they do.

Have a Good Day Girls!

Keep saying I can do this!

I love my Halloween birthday. It was just an ordinary birthday as I was growing up. I never had a birthday party...not sure but think birthday parties weren't so important (so long ago) ;) ...But, as I grew older Halloween became more festive nationwide and now it is popular...It is a day most people remember and a break in the seasons...

Now back to weight loss...I didn't check in on MMWI as it was too horrible...a spike over the week-end, today I've lost about 4 pounds from Monday so it was a spike and not true (thank goodness). I'll be checking in on Monday - what about you... I'm pointing a finger - at YOU :)

Lost .4 lbs, Hope the weather was nice for everyone. It was supposed to rain on this last Thursday to Saturday, but it was just partly cloudy, with a shower here and there. My daughter's birthday was Sunday, which she found out it will fall on Easter again in 2026.
Hope your Easter was nice!

Lost .2 lbs, which I would have done better if I hadn't eaten that extra piece of Garlic Bread. We BBQed yesterday and ate outside. It was such a beautiful day and not a bit of breeze. I fixed the yard for the chicken coup and threw in some new compost dirt that had a lot of worms. They were just going crazy over the worms. Of course today is the last sunny day and it will be raining off and on for the rest of the week.

I had just planted some tomatoes plants, aspargaus and rhubarb. I hope the rhubarb does well.

Keep on going girls, we can do this together!

Lost 1.4 lbs. Not eating after dinner is helping. My short goal is to reach 165 with the Weight Loss Challenge. The weather is getting better, so we'll see.

Keep saying I can do this!

Been so busy running to doctors appoinments that I have little time. I am going to PT for my back and today after PT I got a shot in my back and he said not strenious work for my back. He is also going to have some one else work with my bones to see if they need to be straighten too. I know that I have not been walking right for over 25+ years because of my knee being shorter on one side from a car accident and that my have throughen my back out of line. I just know that my muscles in my back is strung very tight and that is putting pressure on my ribs.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Well, nothing lost, nothing gained. Today is the last of the steroids I've been taking so I hope to see some progress next week!

I've been bouncing up and down 2-3 pounds the last few days. I know its the variation in my salt intake. I've got to watch that.

Deb,
All the salt in those beans and franks probably did it to you. Drink lots of extra water and wash all that salt out of your system!

Well Girls! I'm up .8 lbs!
I made a big mistake yesterday, by eating Bush's Beans and German Frankfurters. The Frankfurters have been a total disagreement with my body. My husband talked me into it, but it's still my fault. Saturday I was at 169.2 but that was totally sabotaged.

Other than that, the temp. here was at 69 degrees and I was cleaning the windows of the house. I had been sick with the flu since Wed. evening, but I at least enjoyed one day of Sun.
I am praying for better weather for you, but it may not be really a good sign for us, since we normally get a lot of rain here in Oregon. This could lead to a drought for the Summer.

It's not easy to be on a diet when your health is not 100%, but I'm glad your both here trying to do things that are healthier, so you can feel better.

Have a Good Week!

Keep saying I can do this!

Oh, Dorothy. They are miserable aren't they? I cannot imagine what you go through each day having to take them. My daughter in love's brother also has Lupus...I'm so sorry to hear you too suffer from it. It is a horrible disease. I'll be keeping you in my prayers.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

OZARKSTRONG1 at least you will be getting off of them, I have been on steroids for over 15 years. I am slowly getting off of them but it is a long slow process. I have lupus and that is what is keeping my on them so long

Ok, guess I'll toss my hat in the ring too. I'll start at 200. I've been on Steroids the last 3 weeks due to a bad case of bronchitis so I'm above my "normal fat self" at the moment. I have 4 more days and hopefully some of the water retention weight will start to drop off after that....hate those steroids! I weigh in on Tuesdays...

Lecates,

I visited Baltimore, Maryland in 2009, when I was studying to be a Biomedical Technician. I was attending the AAMI Convention. I didn't have a lot of time to tour the city, but I went to the wharf nearby the Convention Center. I found people were nice, and I hope someday to visit the Eastern States.

Bad weather gets everyone down, but I hope it will be clearing up for you, so you'll be enjoying the garden again. Best wishes!

I REALLY HAVE TO CHANGE MY EATING HABITS, SINCE THE DOCTOR SAID
SHE WANTS MY SUGAR LEVELS TO BE HIGHER (BETWEEN 126 AND 180) I AM HAVING A HECK OF A TIME,, SHE WANTS MY LEVELS HIGHER CAUSE WHEN I GO TOO LOW I HAVE NO SYMPTHONS OF LOW SUGAR

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE emoticon
