Hi Ladies:)

Going to be inconvenienced for 1 week as my street is going to be closed all the way down to the village for street repairs. Why do they work on the streets during tourist time. They had plenty of time to get the road repaired before the traffic comes.

Have to go the back ways to reach the beach for walking and marketing. My church is going to have a flea market and that this is the week we deliver the goods starting today & up to Friday. Going to get rid of old suitcase sets and dishes that I don't used anymore,cook books & reg picture books and pressure cooker. No appliances or anything with electrical cords due to insurance purposes. Going to hire a man to pick up the rest of the junk to bring to the dump.

Finally the temps & humidity are gone, I guess it blew out with the wind.Now I'm feeling my oats again and want to get started cleaning up around here.

RHONDA-Thanks for starting the new pages,didn't have a chance to post this morning,as I had to go way out of the way to get back to the main streets in town. Have a wonderful & safe trip.

VICKIE- Hi :wave: hope you ave a great day.

Hi there, Chickies. Just got back from getting the car washed. I can't tell you how dirty it was, but now it's clean inside and out. Of course, I am hearing thunder. Wonder if I caused that?

Maryann, so many rules now! I think that's weird about not being able to sell electrical appliances at garage sales. But what do I know? :lol:

Rhonda, have a fun, safe trip. I have been missing you here.

I'm op.

Hi All:

I'm back from my adventure in Palo Duro Canyon. My nephew and I took his two daughters (11 and 6) and their cousin (7) on a hike. It was quite the experience. My nephew's mother and DH also went along, but didn't hike. (It's a 5 hour drive north and west from here.) I believe that it is the US's second largest canyon, after the Grand Canyon.

We all went to a well-know summer production of a play TEXAS and had steak dinner in the canyon. A good time was had by all.

Another day,of sorting out the things in my basement and bring it down to the flea market and the small appliances they don't want [insurance purposes] I remembered I can bring them to our community center,that us down the road from me.

SANDRA-We had a wonderful church fair,I used to bake Hamburger On a Bun with French Fry cookies for the bakery than the Paster heard that people were suing churches & was afraid that people with sue our church if they get hurt from rides,[took away 5 years ago]or food poisoning[3 years ago] and now electrocution with small appliances.

Sloan..Thinking of you every day :hug:

Robin had his wrist surgery Monday am (the one I tried to talk him out of)
The surgeon was very pleased with how he did.
We had to head back to the ER last night because when the arm nerve block wore off the pain was over the top. Percocet wasn't helping , Robin said it was worse than the knee pain after surgery...

After hours at the ER he got a stronger pain med in an IV and we got sent home with something stronger..
He said he should have listened to me about waiting for this surgery:listen:

Today is my Birthday but we celebrated Sunday.. I am 53...
This is going to be a good year with a lot of medical stuff behind us...

I am going to check on the arm lump tomorrow and I will post what the DR
says..

Nancy, ouch, is all I can say. Your poor hubby. Nerve pain is sooo awful.
And, I'm older than Sandra! We're all hoping for the best for you and that lump.

So, here is my NS report. I'm hungry. I guess I should call them for some advice. I expect that I'm more active than most people are who are on this diet. Right now, I'm just adding a protein shake here and there. I've lost two pounds of the four I put on after my big hike a month ago.

I'm sleepy :yawn:, so good night all.

Mornin' chicks, My dad died on Monday night after my mom told him she would be okay and he should go. My siblings and I had been whispering that to him since last Monday, but I guess my mom could not bring herself to say it until this Monday. Of course I'm sad, but I'm so sad for my mom. My parents were married for 58 years, and except for work hours, they were together all the time. We teased them about being so "sappy", but it was really sweet. She even put love notes in his lunch every day, and he kept all of them!! We have visitation today, and the funeral is tomorrow morning. We anticipate a pretty big crowd as my dad was a very busy obstetrician delivering over 7,000 babies in his 40 year career. Thanks again for all of your prayers and concern. You chicks are great!

Good Morning Ladies:)

I couldn't believe the chill in the air when waking up I Had to wear my winter bath robe. The temps outside are in the 50's,spose to warm up to the 70's today. I'm not complaining I love this type of weather. The handyman hasn't put in the A/C's yet,[end of week]hopefully I will not need them until later in the summer.

Not going though town today, going the other way to the card store,forgot that my DD wedding anniversary is on the 13th of June and I haven't gotten her a card yet. Have to get the computer/guest room ready as my sister is coming up for my 70th birthday,she arranging to have a party at our BBC local restaurant for my new & old friends that I met on the Cape while living here.


SANDRA-The church fair is going to be on July 17=18 Have one idea why they want the stuff a month before but I'm not questioning it,I got my things out of the basement and that's all that matters. Now I found out that my friend is going to have a garage sale some time in June,can figure.


NANCY-:hb:Happy Birthday:hb: hope you have a happy one. WoW!! to be 53 again. Looks like lots of core chicks are having June Birthdays.
Oh my goodness hope they were able to get some relief in the wrist. OMG Robin has gone though some much with his knees and now his writs. Hope the rest of the year will be good for the two of you.

ANGELA-Hope you got some sound sleep,after the little guy keep you up.


RHONDA-Don't know anything about NS but I 'd call you shouldn't feel hungry,as that will bring you to a binge.PROTEIN & GOOD FATS like avocado, peanut butter is what the low carbers tend to eat when feeling hungry.


Have to get going, will come back later

Good Morning Chicks!! I slept a little late because I'm not feeling well. We have some stress going on that I don't want to talk about yet. It's not life threatening though; just upsetting business.

Sloan, you and your whole family have my sympathies, prayers, and good thoughts. This next week is just going to be so difficult for you all. Please let us know if there is some way we can help.

Rhonda, are you doing all the extras that are shown in the pamphlet? Call the Counselors. They are awesome and VERY helpful. Jim got extra carb, protein, and fruit servings. I'm guessing with the workouts you do, they'll say you get extras also. It's not good to be hungry and doesn't help one stick to a program.

I'm quite ashamed to admit that we succumbed to some stress eating last night. It was pan pizza and I ate two and a half pieces. I acknowledged that it was wrong and born of stress but I ate it anyway. All I can say for myself is that it wasn't mindless. More like calculated. I'm back on program today.

Sloan...
Thanks for keeping us posted..
Your parents sound like they had a great relationship. So few kids get to grow up with parents like that. My parents were a great example too. They spatted, but it was more funny than disturbing. Mom would get mad and dad would
tease and pester her til she started laughing ...
I never saw my dad mad..ever..Can you beleive that..
Maybe its selective memory but my brother says the same thing.
He stressed in lines and stuff but never mad..
Sorry, didn't mean to go on about my parents( I miss them so much)
Wish so much I could do something to help or say something to ease the pain.
But I know (from being in your shoes) that it just helps to know people care.
Thats all people can do...

If you have extended family there you don't see often ask them to share
childhood stories. Video them if they don't mind.. That is good medicine for them and you and grandkids later... We did that with some funny stories and my kids love them.. (of course you have to judge the mood and decide if its appropriate )
-------------------------------

I saw my doc today about the lump in my arm and he said it was a fatty
growth (lipnoma- or something like that) No worries ..I can have it
removed if I want to or just keep an eye on it.. I trust this doctor , so I am not going to worry about it..

Oh my, Sloan. I'm so sorry. But, what a lovely story about your parents. Mine were married for 54 years before my Daddy died. Well, I hope that your mother feels that she did the right thing by telling him that she would be OK. Let's hope that she will be. What a loss for her and for all of you. My father died over 30 years ago, and I can bring back that emotion without trying. I wish you all the best.

Sloan, it sounds like your father went peacefully and is now in a better place--but it's still not easy for you to let him go. I am so sorry for your loss.

Vickie, I'm sorry you're under stress and hope all gets better soon. Brodie's photo is adorable. And his eyes? They match the pillow!

Rhonda, your body is telling you something. Be sure to call NS and tell them what's going on. How is Doyle doing? Is he being able to do NS?

Rained last night so I did have to water my tomato plants and now this morning and the whole day we're expecting rain again,its a possibility that I be going to the movies this afternoon to see Shrek and than tomorrow I'm going to the movies again with another group member to see Karate Kid.


Three of the four Light Poles are up and do they make the house look attractive. The neighbors will be please when they come down On Independence Day.

OH DEAR SLOAN=We must have posted at the same time I didn't see your post until now. I'm so sorry to hear about you dad. It brought tears to m y eyes Hope your mom will be ok,as the shock no matter how many years your married,can hurt badly. I'm sure you father was loved dearly by loved ones and his patients. Sending prayers and Hugs:hug: your way

VICKIE-Be care,that you don't over stress,by taking deep breaths,I sure everything in your life can be worked out.Thanks for sharing the pic of Brodie,he's such an adorable dogie. I didn't know you had a Scottie????They are such cuties.

NANCY-Happy to hear the lump under your arm is nothing to worry about. I had something like that also and it just disappeared. Your lucky to have a doctor that you can trust,lots of my friends don't have doctors like you & I.

SANDRA-The low temps are wonderful especially at night when sleeping the window is wide open for the gentle sea breeze. Still getting my a/c in this weekend for the full blunt of summer in JULY & AUG.

Maryann, I watered this AM. I also picked a few tomatoes. We'll probably have them at dinner tonight.

Vickie, I'm sending warm thoughts your way.

I have my appointment with the Pain Management specialist for later this month. Till then I've decided not to take pain meds (I have been taking Percocet for over a week now.) unless I really really need them. I don't like being "loopy."

Hey chicks, we buried my dad today. We had a very nice service where my sister gave a precious eulogy then at the graveside service, the funeral home surprised my mom with a beautiful caduceus (medical symbol) plaque on the vault. It was a special day, though it's just so hard to believe what we have been through over the last 10 days. Hopefully I will be back in the swing soon, but I know I'm going to be busy for the next few weeks. I will need to get rid of all of the food that people have showered on us over the last few days, so I can get back to core. I also plan to get back to walking, soon. I will try to get caught up on "chick news" so I can see what you all have been doing. Thanks again for all of your sweet notes and prayers!!!

Looks like a nice day for walking ,but I tied to the house waiting for the handy man to put my a/c in this morning and this afternoon I going with a friend to a movie to see The Karate Kid. Will go on my bike tonight,while watching one of my DVD.

RHONDA-Oh that's to bad that your DH doesn't like the N/S plan.I was thinking about trying the N/S or J/C plans,but now not only seeing here on this thread and other boards that I go to,I decided not to spend money and not like the foods.

SANDRA-That's great that you will partake of the tomatoes your planted to night. I don't have the flowers on my yet,as tomatoes :love:LOVE:love: HOT TEMPS and so far our JUNE is cool,so I think my early girls won't be out in July like they were supposed to.Have to wait for a Sept Harvest.

SLOANE-So Sorry to hear about your dad,just think hes in a better place,I know my Leo is.Its going to be hard on your mom,but it get better with time.You'll get back to the swing of things also,just take care of your mom & be there for her,as my two seem to forget about that. MY DD told me once that,if she doesn't call she can imagine that her father is still around,but whatever don't do that to your mom.

Have to go my handy man is going to come over and put my a/c in and than this afternoon I'm going to the movies.

Yes, that was nice gesture at the funeral home. I wish you all peace now.


Hey Nancy, I almost did that today but decided to wait until next week. All toes are funny to me! Really, this was your first time!? WHAT have you been doing with your time, girl?

Maryann, I think that NS is fine if you have no objection to prepared foods and will follow it. And, I don't think it is so expensive really. Also, nothing is wasted or thrown out.

DH really wants to go out, doesn't really want to do this and is resistant. BUT, he did say tonight that he liked the salisbury steak meal, and I've been a little better with preparing the vegetables. Tonight I melted light cheese with garlic on the broccoli and it was good. We did go out for lunch and had grilled chicken on top of salad, with lots of added veggies. We went to Fuddrucker's and their salad is pretty good.

Hi Ladies:)

Helped a friend with her a garage sale this morning,and now I'm waiting for my handy man to deliver the gas to my house for the BBQ grill and show me how to ignite and use the grill for future BBQ's.


Couldn't believe a compliment some of friends told me this morning that I lost inches and I looked good,wish the scale would cooperate.


NANCY-Glad you enjoyed your birthday present from your cousin .Like the color of nail polish.Thanks for sharing the pix of your new pedicure.

SANDRA-I usually buy the tomatoes on the vine but our in the USA are small comparing from the ones that come from Canada.When I was over a my friends house I notice that her plants are so much bigger with blossoms than mine. We planted them the same time,so I confused why mine aren't growing as well as hers.

RHONDA-Thanks for clearing up the N/S for me,but I've already decided to cook my own meals ,watching the carbs and the most important portion control.

Good morning. We're getting ready to go out to lunch. A friend is coming over later to take some fish out of the pond. We're donating them for a church fish fry. Our pond is losing water (usual for summer) so we need to thin the fish. Curtis is a little sad because they are his pets. He feeds them daily. But they are going for a good cause.

Maryann, :woohoo: on the compliment. Your hard work is paying off.

Rhonda, I'm glad Doyle likes the steak dinner. Maybe he's adjusting. Life is good.

Hey chicks, I spent the day with my mom helping her clean out some rooms in her house. They had started a process for getting their house sold before my dad died, so we are still moving forward. I know it seems soon for my mom, but finances are such that we don't have the luxury of waiting. I ate well the first half of the day then fell off the wagon. I simply must get the food gifts out of my house tomorrow. I still have a huge container of pasta salad, and a fudge pie left from the funeral. Tomorrow it goes to the trash.

Nancy, happy belated birthday. Did you just love the pedicure?

Rhonda, I'm sorry Doyle is having trouble with N/S. My dad tried it once and complained of being hungry a lot.

Sandra, what kind of fish are in your pond? Will Curtis attend the fish fry?

Maryann, congrats on the NSV. It's always encouraging when people notice your progress.

Vickie, sometimes pizza is the only thing that will do. How are you doing now?

Thanks again for all your kind words, chicks. Your support means a lot to me. Have a great night, y'all!

I just ran our well dry...

We were putting some water in the pool and I was in charge
of turning the water off after a few hours . I turned it the wrong way
(all the way open instead of closed ) so the hose ran 4 extra hours.

I will get up every few hours to try to get the tank refilled
(it cuts off when the pump doesn't have water)
and then if we go easy tomorrow we should be okay.

Hubby is asleep...maybe he will never have to know :devil:

I am trying South Beach and I lost the 3 pound I had put on in the last few weeks. I am going to try to stick to phase 1 for a few more weeks.

Cute, Nancy! I did exactly the same thing last week while watering a tree. Thank goodness we don't have a tank and I just lowered the water table!

I hope you all have a good day. We went to a fantastic surprise birthday party last night. I ate a lot, drank margaritas and jumped in the pool fully dressed (with others; I'm not a total fool). I haven't done that for at least 45 years. What a lot of fun it was!

Vickie

Good Morning Chicks! I'm hanging on by my fingertips but I'm back on program and doing well, if not happy about it. The stress will likely continue into next week. I hope all will be well. It's a financial matter and causing ultimate stress.

My scale is up about a half pound but I hope it will be gone by morning. I really need to get into losing mode again. I'll try to drink a lot of water today. I'm woefully behind, although I have been reading.

Nancy, I have a pedicure about once every 6 weeks and I LOVE it! Of course, I mostly do it because I cannot reach around my fat belly to take care of my feet and paint my toes. I also get horrible callouses from carrying all this weight around. I consider it to be a medical necessity! :D;)

Sandra, this is a lifelong battle, isn't it my friend? We will overcome this issue. :hug:

Rhonda, NS and JC are HARD!!! I'm sorry Doyle isn't finding stuff he likes. Did he like anything off of Jim's list? Do you get to pick? We try to only go out once a week because it just makes it that much harder to get back on program when we stray too much. Jumping in the pool sound like total JOYFUL fun! I'm so glad you did it. Our pool isn't warm enough yet but I hope it will be soon.

Nancy, I've never had a well so I don't know how serious what you did is. Is everything ok now?

Sloan, all things considered, I think it sound like you are doing great. That's heavy emotional stuff you are dealing with. Where is Mom going?

Mary Ann, how did your day go?

Angela and Paula.....how are things?

I'm off to eat some oatmeal made with yummy skim and fresh blueberries. It is such a great time of year. Friday I'm going to a Farmers Market to see what they have. I just bought some cherries and cantaloupe that are terrific. It makes eating fruit exciting instead of a chore.

I'll be back later!

Just got back from brunch,looks like rain again,after a night of rain tapping on my bedroom sky lite.Might take a nap before the golf game comes on.


My DD called and she my DGK and my DS are coming up for 4 days at the end of next week. I was so happy to hear that they are finally making the trip up here. Going out and find a tour guild for kids and see whats happening up here for the kids interest.

SANDRA-Thanks,but the inches really didn't go away it just moved upward to my boobs. Afraid to take my measurement.Have to buy another size bra. My friend told me that happened to her also.

SLOANEThanks,wish the top half would have gone also,but that's my bod.We had more drinks[Pepsi, cokes & beer] than food[pizza], at our wake. Gave the beer away and finished the diet Pepsi,and threw out the Coke.

NANCY-Congrats on your 3 lbs lost. I like phase1 of the beach but than when putting back carbs in Ph 2 was where the lbs came back on. I'm very very bread carb sensitive. That's Way I make Atkins Rev Rolls.

VICKIE-Sorry Your stress is over financial matters,that come be every very stressful.Hope all straightens out for your soon.My friend made $200 for the yard sale and I cleaned out the basement after looking a few screws the handy man needed for the BBQ grill. Other wise I had a relaxing afternoon and evening.

Hi there. We just got home from church/eating lunch. I got my costume for VBS. I'm to be "Rhoda" the first night. (June 21) I was relieved they have a costume large enough for me. I was afraid they'd all be kids's sizes.

Maryann, how kewl that your family's coming to visit. You're going to have a great time.

Rhonda, my hat's off to you. I'm glad you had a good time and glad you took the plunge. Makes me smile.

Mary Ann tell me more about these Atkins Rolls...

Our water seems to have recovered.. Our well just can't handle
long uses of water like I accidentally did yesterday. Sometimes it takes
a week to get back to normal but I lucked out..
I told Robin what I did after he had a nice shower this am ;)

We had a lazy Sunday with a big afternoon thunderstorm..My tomatoes
liked the drink . My son has a bad cold and stayed in bed all day...

Funny story..
I was in line behind this sweet 92 year old man today who bought a
phone on sale and was very confused that he only got the advertised price
if he went online and applied for the $20 rebate. The more they explained the more confused he was "I don't even have a computer" he said..

After he went thru the line he was off to the side trying to sort all his receipts. I talked to him and showed him what to send in and where to mail
it , and finally told him I would be glad to just give him the $20 and mail it in for him.

He asked "why would you do that for me "
I told him "you remind me of my dad and I really miss my dad "

By that point I am crying and he is asking about my family and we have a touching moment. I gave him the money and and he gave me a hug and I went back to the car .
Robin was waiting and saw the phone receipt "Long story " I said LOL.

Another Monday and my W-I this morning was a maintain.Realized that my calorie count is below 1000c a couple of days might bring my weight loss to a halt. Going to work on this before next W-I.

NANCY-The Atkins Rev Rolls are very easy to make they are made with eggs, cheese, & seasonings. Hope I can put the recipe on this thread,as its not a WW recipe.
[[3 eggs,separated,1 pkg splenda,dash of salt, pinch of cream of tartar[optional],3 tb cottage cheese OR ricotta cheese]
Preheat oven 300 degrees.separate the eggs,add sweetener,salt,& cheese to the egg yolks. If desired ad cream of tartar to the egg whites. Beat the egg whites until stiff[white don't don't slide when bowl is tilted] Using a spatula gradually add the yolk mixture to the meringue.use some parchment paper on a cookie sheet for easy clean up. Spoon the mixture on cookie sheet to make 6 rolls Bake 300 for 50m. The come out crispy,I put mine in the freezer and use as needed by leaving them out at room temp.]]

They are very tasty more like a sponge cake.

Nancy what a beautiful story God bless you for doing that.
