was 179 this morning. Had hoped to fast again today, but as I was getting ready to go to the pool, I pulled a muscle in my back.
I had to crawl down the stairs. Now I am sitting quietly with a hot pack on my back. Feet up, TV on. Had to eat to manage the extra painkillers.

Sorry, can't do more for now.

Fatmad I am so sorry about your pulled back muscle and I pray you will heal quickly.

It was 14 degrees when I got up this morning and so far it has only made the high to 24 instead of 25. We did have a dusting of snow, but nothing to speak of, but cold is cold. It made it easy to exercise. I am wondering if maybe I haven't been eating enough because I've been eating like crazy and I was shocked with a new low this morning of 155 lbs.

Carol Sue I hope you are doing okay today.

Hope everyone is staying warm and safe.

I have been locked out of the forum for 2 days. It felt like losing an old friend. I am so attached to this forum and hate when I can't post. At least I could see others posts.

My weight has been 173 for 4 days in a row. I am not usually that consistent.

It is very very cold here today. 18 right now and the sun is shining. If he thinks I'm going to the casino he's crazy. Im not going anywhere!! We are used to cold here but this is bad. Today is step sons birthday. He is 58.

Yesterday dgs called and wanted us to pick him up from school. He got hurt in gym class and could not reach his parents. DH did not want to drive that far so he called step son who then called dgs. Finally mom went to get him and took him to Med Express. He has a sprained knee. I guess he will be ok but might always have knee problems.

I will be back later. I hope I don't get locked out again.

Carol Sue So good to see you today. I always wonder if you are okay when you don't check in. I'm so glad you are okay. I hope 3fc doesn't start having problems again. Glad to see your 173 staying. I've noticed that my weight will bounce a few days and then it will stay the same for a few days and then all of a sudden it will drop to a new low and then does the same routine as before. I read that if you eat one apple a day that your weight will stay the same and it helps with weight loss. I am finding that to be true.

DH has gone to Sam's and Walmart and then get McDs CB on the way home. I told him I want to cook a beef stew/soup and I was going to make it with ground beef, He said "you always make it with leftover beef roast". So I think he is going to get a roast that I will cook tomorrow and because he is so picky, I told him to get whatever other veggies he wants for me to add to the leftover roast and I will make the stew/soup Thursday. Friday we will have some leftovers that we can have our choice to eat with having to cook. I've never liked leftovers, but I am finding it nice to be able to cook things with enough leftovers that I can enjoy eating without having to cook full meals everyday. Being able to eat whatever we both like or will tolerate for each other. There isn't any food that we can't have except for foods we choose not to bring in the house because we know we can't handle them. I am so thrilled that he is taking control of his BS which helps me too. Example, I wanted some kind of cookie and he asked me not to get any because he has his BS in a good range. So that helps me not to fall back into eating them.

I have my exercises done and I think I might add another day and do 6 days on the weeks I don't go to oncology. I want to get the veggies cut up for my CB.

Fatmad I hope you are feeling better.

Carol Sue I hope DH didn't try to talk you into casino and you can get back in here. I pray your DGS doesn't end up having a lifetime of knee problems.

Have nice day everybody and stay safe and warm.

Im still able to get in here.

I have chili on to simmer. DH didn't really want it but we haven t had it for ages. I didn't have kidney beans so I put pinto beans in. On Christmas step son had chili he made using deer meat and he put cannelloni beans in it. I have them, too. It seems odd to have chili on Christmas but they cook a wide variety of things. DH said he didn't want macaroni in it but I do so I will put some in mine.

I crave a cookie now and then but I don't like the ones DH buys. He buys white Oreos which are vanilla instead of chocolate and sometimes he buys raisin cookies,from the bakery. I don't like them. I like plain cheap cookies like from Dollar Tree.

DH changed the menu for today and we had Bush's Fried chicken. It was actually good. He went to get McDs but that store is having some real problems. He said he waited 15 minutes behind a guy before him and he didn't know how long others had been waiting and nothing was happening. He said the 3 vehicles that had been waiting left and once he had been waiting for 15 minutes he left.

He got 2 beautiful beef roasts at Sam's. I will cook a roast tomorrow and use the leftovers for the beef soup the next day.

Carol Sue did you stay home or did DH talk you into going to the casino?

I had a good day.

The scale is up 3 lbs to 176. Yikes! DH said its the ice cream but I eat ice cream every day. I think it was the chili. It tasted so good since I haven't had it for so long and I kept going back for more until the pot was empty. I really enjoyed that meal and now I'm paying for it. I forgot to make the cornbread. I took my morning fluid pill so I'm hoping the weight is fluid and is back down tomorrow.

No casino. He wants to go today. I would go if it wasn't so cold. I'm afraid we might break down and have to get out of the car. I worry about things like that. He already mentioned it and I already said no. But we will see. I'm reading a good book that I could read at the casino. Its a diet memoir about a girl who is losing weight on Medifast. Medifast is a plan where they send you food and shakes similar to Slimfast. I don't know if its a true story or not. I need something to inspire me.

Awhile back I was reading about the benefits of apple poly phenol around in the skin. I started buying gala apples and eating one every day. I can't remember which benefit I was after. That lasted a month or so then I stopped. I think I will start again.

I remember when DHs nephews wife lost a lot of weight eating breakfast and a sandwich at 3 pm. I told step daughter about it and she asked "What does she eat for dinner?". I kept explaining it but she was fixated on dinner. She is like her father. Dinner is king! But they eat dinner at 8pm. That is entirely too late. She always tells me her husband only eats one meal a day but he told me he can get a really big breakfast in the cafeteria at work,so step daughter must not know about that. For a smaller guy he is a very big eater. She cooks big meals every night,but they eat so late and go to bed with full stomachs. I don't know if they could ever change that. When I worked I used to plan and start dinner the night before and either she or DH would put things in the oven when they got home. By the time I got home dinner was a almost done. They would never wait for me to come home and start dinner. I would leave things in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. She would sometimes put it in the oven with the plastic still on. I had to start using foil. ha ha. Or leave a note on it to take the plastic off.

So,anyway I'm going to buy apples when I go to Wal-Mart and start eating them again.

I think I have strip steaks in the freezer to defrost and cook for dinner because I don't want to go out. OR I should go out today because bigger snows are due the rest of the week. We will be in trouble if I don't have something to eat. Come to think of it,if we get snow I definitely won't go to the casino!!

By the way, I was searching online to see if I could find anything about Medifast,just curious, and I found there is a weight loss clinic at my hospital. It is mostly focused on Weight Loss Surgery but they also have other medically supervised plans. I knew they dis WLS but didn't know about other plans. One time when I was in the hospital my roommate had had weight loss surgery. In fact,there were 2 of them. The first one got it done because her husband had it done successfully. The second one didn't tell anyone she was getting it done and had to call her brother to come get her to take her home. She didn't look big enough to need it. I remember a woman at work wanted it done and had to gain 20 lbs to qualify! I thought that was ridiculous! But that's how badly she wanted it!

Well,he insists that we go to the casino but its local so only a half hour drive so ill go, begrudgingly, but he owes me!!! I should have known because he mopped the kitchen this morning. He always,does the floors when he wants to go. Thats not my pay back. I'll think of something!

Carol Sue I gained weight too and am back up to 159.4, but I'm sure it is my fault because I forgot to take my fluid pill yesterday and by the time I realized that I had not taken one it was too late to take it or I would have been up all night running to bathroom. So I took one this morning and will take another one later. In fact, I don't know how I messed up taking all my pills yesterday. I took all of them expect for a few I can't take with other supplements.

Roast, potatoes and carrots are cooking and will be ready whenever DH wants to eat. I need to do my vibration platform and I will be through with exercises today.

Not a goal day at the casino. I wish he would get tired of it. I finished the book I was reading and liked it but I won't be doing Medifast! Not my kind of diet. But I got some pointers from it all. She was eating 900 calories and 80 GM of carb. until she reached goal then increased calories for maintenance. The main pointer from it was stay OP 100%. to reach goal.

Its really too late to take my second fluid pill but if I dont I won't lose. I don't know what to do.

Carol Sue I am sorry the casino trip didn't go well.

My roast went well but I was so sleepy afterwards and slept most of the day, I may have to do something different in my plan. Maybe a shorter eating window. Headed to bed soon.

I ended up taking the fluid pill and the scale went down 2 lbs, so 174 today. I was only up for the bathroom twice overnight so not too bad. I woke up this morning craving water so I guess I'm a little dehydrated. I never seem to see any puffy feet or ankles but I guess I retain fluid around my heart and lungs.

Sleep was ok. I seem to have a little more energy. I don't know what I'm going to do today. Its still very cold and snow is completely by in tonight. Then its supposed to snow all day tomorrow,several inches they say. A lot of schools and activities will be closed and cancelled. Grocery stores will be very crowded today but empty thru the day tomorrow. Step daughter works for a new car dealership and I doubt if they are selling many cars. She works in service and they are dealing with a lot of recalls so she's busy on the phones, scheduling repairs. Don't buy a Kia. Lots of problems right now.

I bought apples yesterday so I will have one today. I bought enough for a week.

Today on the radio they were talking about how the hospitals in PA are all going broke. Insurance doesn't pay enough toward care so they are going to be laying off a lot of people. Fewer people are becoming general practitioners because of low pay. Most of the doctors are joining up with the hospitals so they are employees paid by the hospital instead of private practice. There are 3 hospitals in our area all competing for patients. Mine is the smallest and always seems crowded but I guess they aren't getting reimbursed enough for what they do. I know my insurance denied some things related to my heart procedure. One of them was the anesthesiologist. Was I supposed to have this done without it?? I don't know how they resolve this but I'm glad I don't have to pay it!

We had a meatless dinner today. I didn't defrost anything so DH wanted scalloped potatoes so that's what I made. There was protein from the cheese and milk in it. I forgot to make the corn bread when I made chili so I made it today. I was craving it.

Carol Sue I'm glad your weight is down 2 lbs. I've decided that I need to cut back on the carbs. I can have them on occasion but not every day. I actually did that today.

We had McDs today because DH had to go get my oi prescription, but I removed the bun and used SLMG bread instead on mine. I will keep the fruit, veggies and protein and make starchy veggies a rare thing.
Weight was back up to 160 lbs this morning but I hope I can get it back down to 155 soon.

Goodnight.

This morning my weight went down 1 lb back to 173. Need to keep going down.

I didn't make it back here yesterday. I got interested in another book. Another weight loss memoir not as good as the other one.

I slept good last night 7.5 hours. I can really see the difference on my Fitbit after I put my cpap on. It lowers my heart rate.

I've been eating way too many carbs. Yesterday it was Cornbread and potatoes. Its best if I stick with 1 slice of SL toast with my eggs and just vegetables. I've been drinking my protein shakes too. DH says they are old but not that old and they taste fine. Next time I will get 2 flavors for variety.

Texas Roadhouse sent me an email with a coupon for a free appetizer for my birthday. I often just get an appetizer for my meal or we can get an onion blossom if DH wants it. My birthday is next Wednesday. I will be 78.

Im starting to feel more energetic. Maybe I will start back exercising today since its snowing and I dont want to go anywhere. We got 2 inches overnight and its supposed to continue off and on until we get 3-4. The roads have been treated but there were several accidents early morning before the trucks got out. Im glad I dont have to go to work anymore.

Scale down to 172. Yay! Finally. I was going to have a protein shake last night but didn't remember until I was snug under the warm covers. So no.

I think its done snowing. Nothing big.

Yesterday we ate at Rodneys then went to Goodwill. While in Goodwill it started to snow. When we left the roads were covered. Our SUV is all wheel drive so we did ok. A little slippery. We live 7 miles from Goodwill and its hilly. It was rush hour so lots of people coming home from work. Everyone was driving carefully. I ordered wings. I ate all but 2 and brought them home for Rusty. DH had fish and I ate some of his fish. It was all good.

I don't like this new book I'm reading. It was free so I might not finish it.

I didn't exercise yesterday. I really meant to but I was lazy. Once I get the first day in I should be ok. Its hard to get started.
