Good morning, turtles

Judy - doing OK with the Tops challenge, but finding weight still up/down but I did stay off potato chips completely for 31 days (which is a record for me) no to carry on and add swimming for February, as well as less eating out.

But today I have lunch out with the ladies. It is Winterlicious here and the idea is to try higher end restaurants for more reasonable prices.
So today we are going to steakhouse which should be pretty easy to stay on track, then we are going to movies afterwards, to see On the Basis of Sex (think it is based on true story about women's rights) So should be a good day
Grandkids are off to birthday party, so not missing anything at home.

Tomorrow planning on doing some meal prep for upcoming week & I have been "shopping in my freezer" and can't believe all the stuff I have in there. Leaning towards cooking up ribs and a pork tenderloin with a big pan of roasted veggies. Makes dinner during the week abit easier.

Things are warming up here abit, so that is nice. Last week it was minus 25C which is too cold..

Have a great weekend, turtles

Gail

Hi Turtles,
Gail, -25degrees sounds horrible and I am very glad for you that it is warming up.

Busy weekend here and food was off but not by much and by having good foods in the fridge I can "grab" something to fill me in and keep me on track. then I can use points for something special. I had eggsalad made with eggs and more egg white, lite mayo and mustard. Sometimes I made a sandwich on lite bread and some times I just had it as a salad. Also, I made a yummy split pea soup that isn't bad in points either.and that has helped out. My dh is trying to lose a couple of pounds so I also made a sugar free fat free chocolate pudding that will be a good snack.

WI as usual is on Wednesday. Sending all of you : and : as we get thru the winter. The groundhog is offering an early spring and I am happy to hear that. In the meantime I am still aiming to get to my goal weight by this December 31st, 2019!

Chime in if you can. In the meantime keep on keepin' on!
Judy

Hi Turtles,
Today was my WI day, but I decided not to get on the scale. I am pretty sure I'd be up a pound and I don't want to have that throw me off for the week. Only a fellow life-style-changer could understand that logic.
I have plans for a good week.

Sending : to you all. Having taken off and kept off 42#, I am pleased. Now to get to the next small goal of five more pounds and keep them off. This is all doable!

Have a great day and chime in when you can.
Judy

Hi turtles

Judy - totally understand about the scale. When I go up even .2 it is so discouraging. You are doing great!

Warming up but now calling for snowstorm tomorrow, so probably not a nice drive in if end up going to work. Will see what it looks like in the a.m.

So just chugging along up here. And the weight is up/down lately. Haven't been walking regularly either with the cold, freezing rain & snow. Canadian winter at its best.

Have a good week.

Gail

Hi Turtles,
Gail, glad to hear from you. Spring is on its way! We can do this. Winter doldrums make it not so easy to get exercise. keeping spirits up is a challenge, but we can keep on keepin' on!

Turtles, chime in when you can. This is a long haul project, not a two week starvation plan. : and

Judy

Hi Turtles,
Spent Valentine's Day out at Montauk at the tip of Long Island. Drove out with dh and daughter.to spend a few days out there. Gorgeous right on the ocean Good weather, delicious food, good company. Glad we went . It was a nice break from the winter.

Bought some photos while out there to hang in the living and dining room. I will try and get them framed soon. I really like them. A couple of them are different in the idea that it's the beach in the snow. All pretty.

Food was tricky, but I had fish for most lunches and dinners. Delish out there with it being fresh caught.
I hope the turtles are working toward goal and will chime in when you can.
Judy
