Good Morning IPeeps:

Well after not losing anything last week, I finally lost another 2 poounds!
DH has lost 14 pounds the past 2 weeks and has gone from taking 6 pills a day for his diabetes down to 2. His sugars have been staying steady and his blood pressure has been staying at 120/70. So hopefully the next pills to go will be for his blood pressure. My mother started this plans last Tuesday, she lost 6 pounds in one day and then she said that she hasn't lost any more. She said that she is drinking water like crazy but is not getting rid of it like she should. She said she got really discouraged Sunday night and broke down and had a hamburger, but she said she was back at is yesterday. I told her last night to try some hot lemon water, that should flush her out some. And the reason that she may nto have lost anymore is because she lost so much the first day and her body is trying to figure it out or because of the water retention. She has to have both of her knees replaced and they will not do them unitl she loses some weight. So she wanted to give this a try.

I've only been able to pop in every once in awhile, so I have alot of catching up to do. I hope everyone has a gret OP day!!

Hugs and smooches to all!

Morning all- back from our trip to Atlanta, smoothed the kids and grandkids, cooked a whole lot of food(muffins, cheesecake, cookies)and went to a wedding.
Good times! Only cheat all week was a peanutbutter cookie. Should have resisted it, but...that was last week.
WI's are all weird, I missed 1 because of being out of town and the one before that was the WI in the dark with no power at the center. So basically it will be 3 weeks come this Saturday. Think I am at a plateau.
The plan works, I will stick with it! My clothes are getting big and I'm starting to look(at least to me) like the saggy baggy elephant!

Not a nurse but sending hugs anyway!!! Keep that hand elevated, iced, and AT REST!!! And don't be a hero!! Take your pain medication. That is what it is for.

Have a good day.

When I started I felt nausea but did not want to eat anything cause I kept thinking about all the money I just spent to get started. If you cheat you will regret it, so be strong. Drink LOTS of water, I usually do 1/4 Crystal Light lemondade and the rest water. You can do this!!!!!

I felt pretty bad on my second day and just tried to take it easy, drink a lot of water, etc. I got through it, and I am so glad I did. Day 3 was a LOT better, and now on Day 12, I'm feeling fantastic!

Good morning all,
USMCVet,
Thanks for starting the morning thread - especially given your surgery and the pain.

MaMaZu,
Clicked on the link you sent yesterday and I looked at last night and this morning saw a number of new prints, looks like they are putting up their fall prints. Added a new favorite to my list - the Zalda Bis dress in Tiger Eye Red, really special. Next would be the New Jeanne Two in solid navy...

LOL! I love clothes. When these came out, I was too young and poor to even think about buying one.

QUESTION: I never tried one on - are these really wrap dresses (so they fly open)?

Which fabrics do you like?

They are a true wrap dress, so not something to wear outside on a windy day. fYI, when I was young and poor I had a DVF pattern and made myself several, not out of silk (impractical with 4 kids), but used a crepe de chine and some light cotton fabrics. This time it will be in silk. Some people size up with wrap dresses, going next week to try them on so will keep you posted.
BTW, the price almost makes me sick, but doggone it, I've worked hard for this!
