Had a wonderful weekend at Nags Head - there is so much sand piled up along the beach road you can't see the ocean anymore! Still recovering from the Hurricane. Guess they'll move all that sand this winter to get ready for next season. It was a perfect weekend for walking on the beach and going to sleep with the sound of the ocean. Got a lot of quilting done, visited 4 thrift store and 3 consignment shops. We are looking for anything wool we can cut up for penny rugs. Plus we sometimes find a real buy. My tiny skinny friend got an ultra suede jacket for $5 with the tags still on it - size 4. She buys all her clothes in thrift shops and always looks like a model. She doesn't have to, she was just brought up to be thrifty.

It's an amazing 80 degrees here right now - and they said on the news we were going to have a much colder winter than normal - hope that proves to be wrong!

Still doing SB and loving it. Down another pound.

I only have a couple minutes so am cutting and pasting info to everyone.

I got good news and bad news at the hospital. Good news is Jack is doing well with the 2 shunts and the angioplasty. He is resting comfortably and has a nice pink skin again. Bad news is this afternoon we talked to his cardiologist and we thought it was a minor thing but turns out is was a major heart attack with the front artery 100% blocked and enlarged to 3 times its size. Dr Anderson said if I had not called the paramedics when I did he would have died. He did have permanent heart damage but we don't know right now how serious it is. I thank Jesus for protecting him. He is everything to me. He cried this afternoon and told me, "You know I was really really scared and I said, "I know." and he said, "I wasn't scared about dying you know I know what will happen when I die, but I was scared I would be separated from you!" Ok, that did it. I had been holding it all in and the dam burst with that. Kelly has been an angel and taken such good care of me. When the chips are down, she has really come through.

I love you all and will keep you posted!

Good morning ladies. I have a few minutes before heading out to the hospital so I wanted to get a post on.

No phone calls from the hospital last night, so I am breathing a little easier. I know day by day it will get less stressful for me. I am still tired a little as I only got about 5 hours sleep, but I will try and take rest breaks throughout the day until Jack gets moved into a regular room.

Just wanted you to know you are all doing terrific with your programs and I want you to do even better. When you grab for that HOHO or keep your butt in the chair when you know you should be exercising, just think about Jack and know YOU do not want to do that to yourself or your family. Remember, we thought Jack was totally healthy! We need to get tough with ourselves ladies and quit kittyfooting around about losing this weight. It is important to all aspects of our life. I am ridding my home of all such foods (there isn't much but still high fat boxed foods for Jack) and making my home a healthy environment for the both of us!

I will try and peek in later.

Hope you all have a spectacular day. It is going to be sunny and 80 here today!

Love and hugs to you all!

Faye

Faye, I'm so glad to hear Jack is doing better. Take care of yourself! I know this is a difficult and stressful time for you as well. I think we all need to do as you say and get with the program and finally get this weight off. I know Heaven will be a wonderful place, but I don't want to get there any sooner than I have to - time here is limited and there will be forever. That's why I like South Beach - developed for heart patients, the weight loss was just an added bonus. Plus I don't have to weigh and measure and count stuff. I'm even learning to quit eating when I'm full. For most of my adult life, I didn't even know what full was, I just ate until the food was gone.

Looks like rain today - and the temperatures are dropping by 25 degrees by nightfall from yesterday.

Don't forget to VOTE!

Good morning - glad to hear good news about Jack!

Of course I couldn't help but be thinking yesterday about weight loss... We're a relatively small group of people but we have SEEN within our group the proof of the dangers of overweight... If it isn't handwriting on the wall for us I don't know what is. Faye is right, it's time to quit kittyfooting around.

Cafe, trying to see cigarettes on the platter when offered chocolate.

Faye, I'm so glad that Jack is doing better. He'll get stronger each day. We'll keep the prayers going.

Carol, I'm sure this is a terrible re-run for you dear, I think of you daily.

Quilter, Size four, didn't know there was such a thing!

We seem to be hitting a slack in our posting, I'm as quilty as anyone and will make sure that I get here everyday now that work has slowed somewhat.

Back later.
