It seems both your daughters have done well with their career choices. Good for them!

Weight is down .2. Down is down. I feel 100% better so far today. No nausea last night and abdominal pain are gone. They were very slight but there.

Trish, I hope you are feeling better, too.

I'm making brownies to take to DGS. I'm happy that what he likes is so cheap and easy to make. $1.25 for a box mix. His mom makes delicious brownies from scratch but he likes mine better. That's kids for you!!

Whatever they serve for lunch I hope I can just eat a few bites. I already had a big breakfast and 2 brownies!! The last two didn't fit in the container so I had to eat them. Ha Ha I probably could have made them fit.

I am feeling a bit better this morning although not up to par. I feel shaky and weak. I hope that will wear off in a bit. Today is WI day and I was thrilled with the new scale #.197.6 this morning. Today is my 1 month WI and I've lost 9.8 lbs. Do ladies ever remember me losing so well? I don't think I have in years. I am so happy with this. The thing is that I did eat what I could yesterday and used all but 4 food pts for the day. In fact, I noticed this morning that my 35 weekly pts has been switched to 28 today. I don't use them and I can build them up since I don't eat all my daily, but it must be because I'm under 200 now.

Carol Sue I'm sorry I thought I answered you about when I felt nausea. I didn't have it until after I ate the pudding. I'm thinking it has ruined. I did forget to check the date which I usually do. So it might have been going bad or it could be that I can't handle the inulin. Anyway, I won't be eating it again.

I thought I bought a box of SF brownie mix to make but can't find it so I must have changed my mind. It was made with Splenda and should be fine. I still use Splenda when I can't get Stevia.

Fatmad I am very happy for your DD new job. I know it feels good for them to be doing so well.

I also think what could have caused me some problems the past 2 days is that I haven't been having good BM and DS and DH are always telling me I should do what they do. So I took a dose of Miralax the past 2 nights. That is another thing I won't do again. It never worked me at all and it only made me cramp and be miserable. I never could take stuff like that in the past and should not have tried it now. I think the problems from that along with the bad pudding just did me in. Maybe it helped me break my plateau and if it did I'll be happy that some good came out of it.

We aren't doing anything this weekend. Don't plan to go to church this weekend or next since we will be out of town next week. My niece from Detroit is coming in a day early next week so we will get to see her next Sunday before we leave to come home Monday. I want to get over whatever this is so I can go and enjoy it.

Y'all have a great weekend.

Trish, I am glad you are back in Onederland and glad you are feeling better. I knew you said you felt sick after you ate the pudding but you said you had it a week ago and I didn't know if you meant the pudding or the nausea.

We had a nice time at step sons. He cooked hot dogs and sausage on the grill with Mac and cheese and coleslaw, so a nice lunch and we don't need dinner. They were happy to get the brownies.

I asked my DIL about WW. She said she just started back and is doing blue, but her birthday was Thursday. Her friends took her out to celebrate last night, then we came over for lunch today, so she really hasn't started into it. She said she is doing blue as if that is what WW told her to start with, like they did you.

Wt stayed the same. Sleep was poor but 7 hours. DH was having kidney pain yesterday and last night so he kept me up. Luckily we had a bottle of cranberry juice and he feels better after drinking that. I keep telling him to drink a cup daily to prevent this but he doesn't listen. Guess I'll have to get the whip out. I would like to drink it too but I drink Diet and we don't have room for 2 bottles in the fridge.

Trish, let us know when you are leaving for your trip so we know.

I just had a delicious big breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That statement applies to me, but not to others. My breakfast is high fat and protein, low carb. It makes me feel energetic, and holds my hunger for hours. No other meal for the rest of the day falls in any of those categories for me. I know others prefer to skip breakfast and never miss it, and that is fine, too. I have tried it and it doesn't work for me. I like things like oats, but as a side dish with my breakfast. That is how they gave it to me in the hospital and it made my day. Lunch and dinner foods are what I could do without. I was never crazy about a meat and potatoes meal, but I do eat it. It just doesn't give me the exhilarating feeling I get from breakfast. That kind of food makes me feel sluggish and tired. My body is saying a big "Thank you!!"

Now I need to take a shower and straighten up the house a bit because step daughter will be coming to see her father for Father's Day. I don't have food planned. I don't expect her to be here long. This will be the first time anyone has been in our house since the pandemic. Yesterday was our first time in someone else's house but I guess if we can go to the casino we can see family. If our virus cases start up again I will rethink this. I am being careful, wearing my mask, and I will continue to be careful. I am not afraid but why take chances.

In FL they said the cases are mostly younger people. I think that is because the older people continue to take precautions.

Carol Sue We will leave some time Saturday morning to go to see my niece. Thirty-seven years ago on June 19, I miscarried my baby. On June 30th, my sister called me from the hospital here in Waco and said get up here and hold this baby. My niece became our baby. I have loved her like a daughter. She and her husband bought their first home this past year and we are going to go see her home and celebrate her 37th birthday. I can't believe time it has been this long. A lot of changes since then.

I got a text from my step-daughter the other day and the baby girl that was born one month before DH and I married got her first job last Friday. I just can't believe how fast these kids grow up.

I saw on FB yesterday that they are making it mandatory to wear masks in stores and business here. I don't know if that is true or not. I checked on line and we didn't have any new cases so I have no idea if it is true. DS will probably know when I talk to her later.

You know Carol Sue, it is strange how we change. I didn't eat breakfast when I was young until I cooked for my DH and his kids when I was in my 30s. Even then, I was dieting and I learned to make shakes for my breakfast. I have to say that I really in truly love a good breakfast. really would like to turn my eating around and just have 2MAD and make it breakfast and then the meal I have to cook when DH and I eat together. I don't know what that is such a struggle to do. That really was how I ate when I married DH. I didn't always eat breakfast, but I never ate after 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Maybe I'm not trying enough to do it. I need to be more disciplined.

I am happy to say that I am still 197.6 this morning. FBG was 128. That is because I had some small rice crackers last night. Trash goes out tonight so I will have to get rid of some of the things I've tried wearing that is raising my bs. I am actually feeling better but I am so weak today. I am going to cook DH a steak today but I am going to grill me a chicken breast. My chicken breast is 0 pts and I like that better than I do the steak.

I hope everybody has a pleasant Sunday.

Trish, I am sorry to hear you lost your baby. I am happy that you have plenty of good family to fill the gap. My father passed away on June 19 1957, 63 years ago. My nephew passed away on June 19 a few years ago, I forget what year.

And I'm happy to hear you are holding your low weight. Every day you hold that or go down is a good day. Hope you get your strength back so you will feel better on your trip.

The only time I went without breakfast was when I was in high school. My stomach was always queasy before school. Nerves, I guess.

Step daughter did not say when she was coming. DH called her and said he is tired of sitting around waiting for her. From now on he is going to tell her he is going somewhere, like the casino, so he doesn't have to sit around. I wish he could go to the casino but it will be crowded because of Fathers Day. He is feeling better and that is a big relief to me.

Just a quick check-in- I seemed to have maintained this week. My heart just isn't in it right now.

I'm sorry to hear you are so down Pipsicle. I am too, sort of, because the lbs I am losing are the same pounds I lost last month and gained back. I am trying to just keep on. If I don't I'll be back at the starting gate.

My step daughter tried out my new scale and she weighs 172. I am shocked! She looks to be around 150. She looks thin because she's taller and has long thin legs but she carries the weight in her upper body and butt, and wears a big billowy top. She seems to be build like my MIL. She says being laid off has caused her to be less active. Plus she eats less when she's at work. She needs to get back to work.

Pipscile I am sorry you are feeling down. I know how that feels. You probably don't want to hear it but if you maintained then try to remember you didn't gain. I know how I felt when everyone was saying that to me so I do feel for you. I pray things get better for you this week.

Wt and blood sugar both up today due to ice cream. No surprise. I don't know why I do that. I have no self control. I need to pray about this.

Allergies are acting up. Runny nose. I have a short list for Wal-Mart when DH gets up. Of all things, I ran out of tooth paste and toilet bowl cleaner! I could get them cheaper at Dollar General up the road but when DH needs bread we have to go to Wal-Mart for Great Value. I really can use any cleaner in the toilet but can't think of a good substitute for tooth paste. I am using a little tube that we got from the hospital. Dollar General has Colgate for $1.

Hope everyone had a good weekend and are ready to tackle another week!

Carol Sue I'm with you this morning. My weight is up 2 lbs to 200.2. FBG was good at 115 after yesterdays 128. I stayed up too late and when I stay up, I eat and that is never good.

I am feeling better this morning and do have got to get busy so I will be ready to leave Saturday morning. DS and I wanted to caravan to my nieces but DH wants to cut across the back roads to get over to the main highway. He doesn't want to go through town to get to it. I probably haven't been on those back roads in a good ten years when I drove through Crawford, TX when we came home to visit. Bush the son was the President then and we came back that way. Any way, you know how these hubbies are and we will go the way DH wants to go.

We had a wonderful visit with DH DD and the granddaughter and grandson. They were wound up and ready to tell us all about all they have been doing. GGD got her first job as cashier at the same grocery store where her sister works. She has her whole life planned out of all she wants to be and I do hope it all comes together for her. She wants to be a doctor. Surely would love to go see them.

I hope everyone has a good week this week. I'm back OP this morning. I decided to eat steel cut oats this morning because it keeps me satiated longer. I'm going to work today at getting back to 2MAD and stop eating after our 3ish meal. I am well aware that the best way to make this work is to get with it and just do it. 200.2 is the highest I want to go. Now that I have seen 197, I want to keep going lower. The nice thing is that I just read on FBWW someone told a newbie that you will have ups and downs so don't worry about them just keep to it. I need to get back to exercise too even if it is just housework. Movement is movement.

Trish, that's how I feel when I dip down into the 180s. 190 is no longer good enough.

I'm making lasagna for dinner but I'm not very hungry. DH wanted to go out for breakfast. God knows why. Their eggs are not as good as his, and their sausage is not the Jimmy Dean that I like. So, $18 with a tip and I wasn't satisfied, but I was full. How much eggs and sausage could I buy for $18.

I'm down .2 today. That's not acceptable. I'm getting mad, now!

Trish, there has been an increase in virus cases all across the South including Texas, but maybe not in your county. I don't know if it's due to the recent protesting. That could be the reason for the uptick in our county and the next. They say this time it is hitting the younger people. They are living their lives as if there is no virus. I don't know who is right or wrong. I try to do the best I can. DH wants to go to the casino, there isn't much I can do about it.
