Good morning all,
142.8 this morning, my goodness normal for my height, unbelievable

Sorry I already missed a day, we had a rough one yesterday. It is with a heavy heart I have to say we lost our little Hunter Dog Tuesday evening. He went for a walk with DH and was running back towards him and collapsed, DH ran to him and was able to hold him as he took last breaths. Totally unexpected, we are happy he was doing what he loved, but miss him awful. I took the day off and we spent the day remembering and laughing and crying. It was very healing. We plan to rescue another dog in his memory when the time is right. We gave him joy and he gave us joy. He helped me lose my weight so I will honor him keeping it off.

Hope everyone has a great day

Wishing you all all the best

Good Morning. 185.2. NEW LOW!

Yay, those come less often and tomorrow will probably see a bump. A teammate has taken the day off and we are going to set up training problems to work with Beau all day. I told him I would take him out to thai for lunch. My menu item is chosen [chicken satay appetizer and eggplant basil, no rice] and I know the sodium will attack me. Breakfast will be a filling bacon and omelet. I am estimating 732 between lunch and breakfast. Will evaluate supper when I get home. Tomorrow, I finish home office reorganization, pay bills, and receive the compost delivery.

No plans for worrying about steps today as I will be largely on my feet doing stuff with the dog and that tends to burn a lot of calories. Yesterday I walked 16,261 steps and did upper body.

Ciece, thank you for the prayers. Having been with one company so long I am scared about the unknown. Financially we are OK except that health insurance bill would be about $1500 a month which is scary and I carry the insurance since DH is self-employed. I am not sure yet what cobra would be. I guess I should not worry about it until it all gets sorted. Fortunately, the mortgage is paid.

Kelijpa - I think that is the lowest weight I have seen. So sorry about your dog. Glad he was running and having fun when it happened. They are such a part of our lives. I can't imagine life without sharing it with one.

Flowergirl - Be nice to yourself. Remember how this "fall" made you feel and you know that an 1800 calorie day is not going to add 2.2lbs - so there is salt and water and all that. Focus. Focus.

Jendiet - Bumps happen and you know that staying the course will pay. Sigh. Sounds like a wonderful time with your boys. I remember those days with my girls years and years ago and now my grandkids are too old. The oldest one is 15 with an *eeeeeek* boyfriend. Mom is supervising their time together though.

Beeps - yes we all have to have our own relationship or not with the scale. I can certainly relate, having had some crushing days. Sorry you have to weigh so much for your program. I don't measure but maybe I should. Nah. The trend line is what keeps me level headed some days. All my stuff is in Excel.

Teri, I have a cheap laptop and need to reinstall windows this week, but when I start doing personals and am scrolling back I find that I loose everything when I go to another page so I often go ahead and post, then edit the post several times to save the data. On THIS forum you can edit a post with no time limits, unlike others I have been on.

To all the folks who jumped on - keep posting. I know sometimes people come in and post once then go away and it is hard to reply until you know more about them, but if you stay around and get engaged this is a nice groups

KelijpaI am so sorry to hear about Hunter. Gosh, I don't even want to think about when Cody's time comes. It was really huge for us to decide to get him since it was so hard on us when we lost Magnum. Some people say it's easier if you get another pet immediately. Are you going to do that? It seemed like we were wallowing in our misery and things improved for us when we got Cody. I just thought about it, we waited a year. It really seems like it was longer than that. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers today.

Good Morning, Everyone!

Last night I added on: Full Body Stretch (standing)
This Morning: Oxycise Commuter Workout

Calories for yesterday: 1535 +
Weigh In: 187
No Change (I felt unusually swollen this morning) ETA: swelling in hands not the face swelling that I had prior to the "experiment".

Have a Blessed day!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

March 22

Isaiah 54:10
'For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed,' saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.

There are times when we feel God has left us to struggle on our own. No matter how we pray, how we plead, it seems no help will come to us. The temptations mount, and our strength and will-power get weaker and weaker. This is where faith comes in. In those times we feel God is absent from us, we must believe that He is still there. God will never leave us, no matter how we may feel. He stays constant for His children. Nothing can move God from our hearts, and we need to know that. God will give us strength in time of need. He will not abandon us, ever.

Today's thought: I may lose weight, but I can't lose God.

Arrow MARCH 2018--Same old...

Hi Everybody,

Nancy: Hope you get to keep your job...Dealing with uncertainty is not pleasant. I have done without health insurance. I know what that feels like.

Keli: So sorry about your dog. Thinking of you.

I am eating too many carbs. I've been eating spaghetti. I did find some veggies in the freezer. I REALLY need to go to the grocery store.

I did my usual knee exercises and stability ball exercises and shoveled snow as my cardio. It was a short workout. My lower back was bothering me. I had done 100 situps earlier. Usually they don't bother me. (It's not a serious injury, just some achiness.) I do my stability ball exercises in front of the tv. It is much better than vegging out in the lounge chair...though I have to get there first!

225/212.5/213/210 There must be an easier way to lose weight!

So I tried posting earlier today and 3 times when I hit submit my screen went white! So hope 4th time is a charm

WI down again 167.0 so I think my sodium run from Sunday is finally gone. Workout done today was lower body weight training and a bit brutal. All parts of me are sore now.

Kelijpa I am so sorry to hear about Hunter, you have posted so many times how the two of you go for walks in the woods.
Granny that is super scary about your job situation, congrats on your new low!
Diana my goodness just when I though you had a major break through and now a flare up???? oh my stars
doitforme congrats on your 1lb loss!
ciecie do you track how many steps you do in a day with all your errands? Just curious

To everyone I missed I am not ignoring you! More later hugs all around

Hi Everyone!

A couple things from today. I made an iced coffee today. I used 1 teaspoon of real sugar and I did use a lower acid coffee. I didn't notice any problems. The last time I didn't use low acid coffee & I used Sweet 'n low, I noticed a bit of a reaction. Maybe it was the sweet 'n low or maybe when the acid is removed it removes some of the tannic acid. The other thing that happened was tonight at dinner. I ordered a grilled chicken salad and they serve it with a small wedge of cheddar cheese. I have had the mixed cheeses (orange/white) in my salad and didn't notice a problem. Tonight, a few minutes after I ate the orange cheese wedge, my lips started tingling. This is interesting. It must be the annatto coloring in the cheese. I guess the shredded cheese doesn't come into contact with my lips as much as the wedge did. I have been wondering if the tannin reactions are contact or systemic. I do believe they are both. I have come to this conclusion because of the facial swelling and the reactions I had around my eyes. Insteresting stuff!

Kelijpa I have been thinking about you today.

grannynancy
Praying for you and your job situation. Since we are self employed, we pay for our insurance. I know DH won't be able to work until he gets regular medicare. He will probably be disabled before then. Life can be such a challenge.

nancylmrn I don't think the swelling this morning was from tannins. It may have been sodium, angioedema or any other drama that I could have. I have tried to avoid tannins as much as I can.

Kelij, my heart goes out to you about your dog, Hunter. I love animals. I am of the opinion you should rescue another dog. You have an empty space, no pet can fill Hunter''s spot, but rescued dogs are grateful and loving.. I absolutely prefer a pound rescue over a pure bred.

Granny nancy, I pray you keep your job and get to retire employed. Jesus said "don't worry about tomorrow, today has enough troubles of its own, but I know what it is like to stare down that barrell. I pray for peace. Awesome about the weight loss! Yeah you are busy. Oh no the dating begins, I know that is wierd. I got another son (3) and he is 19 and he tears my nerves up. I love him and miss him and pray God gets him on a good path.

Terri, I scrounge around in the fridge looking for stuff that can make me feel like I'm dieting still too. "Diet" food costs so much...you are still going down! Awesome on the sit ups, I need to do planks...

Doit, yeah I am glad to hear Tumeric is working...I need to get some for my nerve pain too.

Ciecie, do you take the bus often? That is cool how you use it as an opportunity to walk

Amazon, what kind of analyzer do you use, that is awesome progress!

Flower, low carb makes me a meanie. I try it to shake things up but it really does make me ill. On my 500 kcal days. I have no choice but to eat lower carb. I had a 1900 kcal day today.

Diana, oh no! I love cheese. That sounds horrible. I pray peace in your body to receive the food without issue in Thanksgiving. Sweet n low, saccharin, aspartame, splenda, to me, are horrid chemicals not fit for human consumption. I react with headaches to it if I drink/eat something that I do not know it is in. Now, they put them in so much! Even Welchs!!!

Beeps, don't let the scale beat your determination!

Today was a higher day. Still below maintenance but tomorrow is going to be a 500 day. I had a friend's daughter as well as my 6 year old and 4 year old. She is 1.5. We picked my 6 yr old up from the dentist then wenter grocery shopping for 2 hrs. I really felt it and know I was pushing the cart fast. We covered a lot of ground so I know I burned a heck of a lot of calories...keeping up with them and the lunges to pick up the items the 1 yr old kept throwing out of the cart just made it more Hiit. I can usually feel my blood sugar drop by the end of a long shopping trip...and today was a doozy.

My car still is not back and that stresses me out but my friend is letting me use his van

I should plan my food and post the plan so I can stay accountable to it. I am laying here trying to ignore my growling stomach and hoping I can stick to 500 even though TOM is right around the corner...I became an irritable cleaning machine...so think it will be tomorrow or next day...

Ok, am finally a little tired. Goodnight everyone

Good Morning, Everyone! Happy Weekend!

Jen I hope you can get your car back today. We rely on our vehicles so much here. It would be nice (and healthier) if we could walk where we needed to go.

Tomorrow I am going to see the movie I Can Only Imagine with some of my church friends. Looking forward to this.

I definitely have something going on. I think it's the regular angioedema. My lips don't look like they are about to explode, so that's good. Hopefully, things will calm down in a couple of days. Unless, it's the extra tannins. (???)

Today is my early day.

Last night I added on: Full Body Stretch (standing)
This Morning: Oxycise Commuter Workout

Calories for yesterday: 1610 +
Weigh In: 188
Up: 1 pound


Have a Blessed day and a great start to your weekend!

Copied from Crosswalk Devotions for Dieters

March 23

Psalm 25:12
What man is he that feareth the Lord? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

A group at the church decided to help one another lose weight. A friend of one of the members joined the weight-loss group, even though he wasn't a Christian. After four or five sessions, the young man left the group, saying, 'I thought we would help each other not eat. I didn't know you planned to pray and study the Bible. That junk won't help anyone.' As it turned out, the group was quite successful. The young man failed because he wouldn't entertain the idea that God could be any help. Those who believed in God trusted in Him, and they were rewarded.

Today's thought: God is my secret weapon for success!

Good Morning 186.2 bounce up but I was expecting that. Went over on calories and, more importantly, sodium yesterday.

Today is not planned yet but I am doing that ASAP.

I had a wonderful day training yesterday and came to the awareness that if I loose my job I am going to look into bed bug detection; I am actually starting to talk with people now. I might be able to do that as a 2nd discipline for my trailing dog, Tilly as she is young enough and has the right drives. Kind of thinking when they are both gone that a working field bred English Cocker may be the way to go and they use them as detection dogs over there. Small "friendly-type" of dog. Tilly has excellent people skills but those pointy ears and her black color make her "scary" to some.

It should be a piece of cake after the cadaver dog work and would be a job to keep me "moving" as opposed to chained to a desk. Beau could not do it as there is a conflict with two different related disciplines. Diana, I may reach out to you for your experience if it happens to find out options for insurance in SC which I know are limited and, from talking with a teammate who pays - he is out about $800 a month for high deductible. Like many, my goal would be paying out of pocket unless something "big" hits. I don't want to decimate that retirement nest egg I have nurtured over the past few decades. Enough to keep us going but not enough to waste money. DH is self-employed and rides on my insurance. With him being 3 years younger than me and the one with coronary artery disease (which is being well controlled) , Medicare has a longer horizon but if they take us back to allowing insurance companies to "discriminate" against people with health conditions, we are in bad shape. I doubt he would be able to get a job - he works hard enough but does not "do well" with bosses. I could help him with his business.

The Bible verse today hit the nail on the head for me!. Got to also keep thinking about that little sparrow.

Jen - your life makes my head spin. Hope you get your car back. With kids in tow I know you need it. Hoping for great losses after TOTM passes.

Diana - Glad the swelling is not angioedema. Your resilience at taking these things in stride and pushing towards resolution is truly inspiring.

Teri - hope the weather (and your back) clears up for you soon enough! Ungh. That has got to be a real challenge.

Nancy - that is a nice drop and I hope it continues! Amazing what sodium, etc. can do.

Doitforme - Yay for the loss!

Amazon - nice loss. Is this your first week?
