Hi . . .

I'm still on track . . . and definitely hoping to stay that way.

Today, I'm ready to complain about the weather . . . . . . It is sunny again and that's a good thing, but the temperature is getting colder instead of warmer. Oh well, I have to go out anyway.

Nothing too much going on around here. It's School March Break this week and I imagine all the stores will be bust, busy, busy. Of course, in the years when we've still got this much snow a lot of families go on a ski trip.

Hope everybody has a great Monday on the go . . .

Meowee: It is interesting how things change during children's school breaks and when it's warmer. The noise and crowds. I think I'm ready for a 55+ community.
My psychology is working. I lost another pound. I stayed under 230 at 228. I'm very happy.

Hi all! just a quick post. I have a school meeting tonight. A good start to the week! I was able to take the scooter to work after lunch - too much ice when I left for work this morning - plus it was still dark
I got in 30 minutes of "My Fitness Coach" with the Wii and I will walk to school tonight.

My weight stayed down this morning, so it looks like I survived the desserts

DH has decided he wants to drop another 10, so I will probably go a bit stricter with my plan to support him. I can always add a few calories at work if I need to.

The perfectionist in my wants to drop a few more with him, but the sane part of me knows that I need to stay right where I am.

Hope you all had a good start to the week!

Laurie

Good Afternoon!!
Well I was doing so great until the weekend. I really have to do something about weekends. On Saturday had a good breakfast but then went to my son's to finish up all the stuff there. I even took a lunch from home so I would eat. Well when I get busy I just do not eat. So along comes 6:30pm and I have not eaten.

My son got home from work and we were all finished. He made me supper and it was healthy enought but it seems that when you throw off the timing everything crashes. Then on Sunday same thing. Took a friend out shopping. Had only had breakfast. So by 430pm I was starving and this friend is a lap band person and does not eat. So was starving and went through drive thru for fries. The lap band had a shake. Then had more junk in the evening. Grrr.
Go figure.
So back OP today at work. Did not weigh this morning. I do not need the scale to beat me up too!
I remember thinking that a protien bar would be a good idea. I am going to get some and just put them in the trunk. Maybe remember to bring a fruit along. Need to plan better.
The eye is slowly recovering. Still feels like a bit of sand in there but not watering all day long. Still am waiting to go back to the specialist.

Have not made it to the symphony yet. Need to find a friend that would like to go. Everyone seems to be short on cash these days. I am lucky to have a recession proof job but living is pricier I have noticed. When they ring in the groceries I often do a double take at the cashier. " those 3 bags are HOW MUCH?? " I have seen some price gouging going on too. Nothing like the word recession to drive up yesterdays goods to todays prices.
No stopping it though no matter what you say. I bought yogurt one day the store's brand and 5 days later it was up $1 a container. So 4 yogurt an extra $4. I asked the cashier why but she just works there.

You guys are all a great incentive. Everyone is doing so great. Not sure how you managed a dessert smorgosbord. Yikes I would think I was in heaven!!

Hey Jen awesome that your son is back. I would be holding my breath the whole time I think.
Laurie ....what's a belt?
Jay I have a pressure washer too. A day of pressure washing and you feel like you have been a round with Ali! Mine is something like 2100psi. It is hard to kill the algae. This is a rain forest here and we get it too. Bleach works but not great for the environment.
Jada congrats on the 228. I was there a few months back but slid back up. I am going to have to smarten up or you will leave me in the dust. Good work.
Linda where is the spring?? it is cold here too.

Gotta get back to work......Jude

Where do you buy the South Beach Living protien bars?? Not sure they are available in Canada. Can you tell me the protien amount??

Hey!

I woke up around 2:30 a.m., and couldn't get back to sleep. Got up around 3:30 a.m. and worked. Might as well! But it's been a hard day. Step class at 10:30 was very hard...

hijude, that is some pressure washer! Mine is only 1500psi, and that's plenty! I can do anything I need to with that. And, I don't feel like I've gone 10 rounds with Ali! Plus it's electric--just plugs into a socket. It says absolutely never to use any bleach in it--it will void the warranty and damage the machine. I use a cleaning fluid made for these machines--a little goes a long way, and it's not toxic like bleach.

Nothing kills algae forever. This cleaner does just as well as bleach. But, eventually you have to clean it off again.

CountingDown, I know nothing about Methodists--I thought you might have been Catholic.

Jada1, congratulations on that pound!

Well, being consistent with food is really important for me. I try never to go without eating because I pay for it later. Jude, you need a watch alarm! And a plan...

meowee! You keep on going, girl!

Oh, CD--I'm so glad that I'm not a fan of cheesecake. Well, there have to be a few foods that aren't dangerous for me! I'd have no trouble passing that up, thank goodness.

Time to do some more work here... Only one more month of this craziness...

Jay

South Beach Bars

Jay - I'm glad you are getting through tax season - but, I'm afraid that there is more craziness coming before you are done!

Jada - I absolutely HAVE to eat every few hours. Not eating regularly is what caused my weight gain over a ten year period. Seriously. Crucial for me to eat regularly!

I get the SB bars at Wal-mart or Meijer. They are usually in the cereal aisle - with the granola bars.

Absolutely LOVE having them as an emergency snack. They are perfect to carry around and are tasty too

Gotta get some sleep! Take care all!

Laurie: I think you meant Jude when talking about not going without eating. It's okay, just wanted you to know. My problem has never been going without eating. Lots of other problems, but not that. I'm impressed with your commitment to the Wii and walking.
Jude: Eating is such a strong social activity, it's tough to stay OP on weekends when we usually get together with family and friends. I feel silly picking at my food, when I weigh more than anybody else in the room. Too bad the project with your son is done. It's so enjoyable to work on projects with people you get along with. Hate to see them end. But another project always comes along.
Jay: Very good going 7 1/2 mi on the exercycle. I think the farthest I've gone is a mile.
I stayed OP today. It's nice to go to bed not hungry, and yet still lose weight. It's also nice to not feel too full and to not have stomach problems making it difficult to sleep. I think it was Laurie who said that when you get your weight down, you will enjoy your food more. I'm beginning to see a glimpse of it already, in that I can enjoy onions in my omelette now, which I had stopped doing to stop the heartburn.

Top o' the mornin' to ye . . . Apparently the green beer is already flowing around here -- the bars in Halifax opened at 7 am and people were already lined up to get in.

At least we've got sunny and cold weather again today and I just might have to don some green clothing and go off to town for a few things I forgot yesterday.

Beautiful trip across the Causeway yesterday . . . the ice is breaking up in the harbour and three gorgeous bald eagles were cruising along the open water looking for a little snack. Yes, I think Spring will actually arrive.

Jada - you are correct of course!

Linda - LOL, Don't tell Gary about the beer, he will be coming for a visit I think you are right - is sure feels like spring! We are sending some warm weather your direction - it is 63F here today! It feels heavenly!

So, obviously - I gotta get outside and enjoy this weather. More yard work is just the ticket!

Enjoy the day!

Happy St Patricks day!!
Jada interesting how you picked up on my feelings. It was fun working on my son's place. But the best part was watching him enjoy the work we had done for him.
I was OP yesterday but not so great today. I have a friend at work and she brought me cake to my desk. Funny she figures I can use a little treat!!
Not.
All in all things are ok here today. The battle with the food makes me a little testy at times. Today is one of them. But I am a believer that a better day can start any moment. I have OP food with me here at work.
It is a learning curve and I seem to be a slow learner but as long as we are still going forward instead of giving up.

Hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying the sunshine. It was sunny here this morning but has since clouded over. I have some flowers growing in my back garden and birds lined up at the bird bath. They are a riot. They sit in the trees waiting their turn. Same breeds will bath together which is too cute.
Have a good one and yes in Canada they do serve green beer!
Cheers.....Jude

Today , it was 65 here. It weas absolutely beautiful. I spring has come to stay. I've lost a couple pounds this month and hope to lose more. Talk to you soon. Happy St. Patrick's day.

Flowingair: That was a funny joke
I stuffed myself tonight. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but I was hoping it wouldn't be until I was under 200 lbs The good thing is that I stuffed myself with broccoli before I started on the unhealthy food. It didn't upset my stomach, but I sure feel tired now. Another good thing is that it takes a smaller amount to stuff me now.
