    Marie, that's great that you found a good connection to OA and read some of the literature.....it's a great program but without the Steps and a sponsor, it's just another diet with friendly people....the Steps are what makes it work

    Janice, we have a Taco Bell in our town that I've never been to because of the high sodium in the food..I'm glad you found something that fits your eating plan...love your garage..what a great place to work on the car.

    Connie, good for you getting to the gym.

    Nancy, good idea to do your exercise first

    I have been taking it easy and not overdoing. I walked the dogs this morning first thing so Jake could sleep a little later. After breakfast he walked Brandy and I walked Sasha. I taught my beginner line dance class today and felt really good while I danced, but I sat down during the break to rest. I am still staying away from the exercise bike and the dumbbells so for me, that's taking it easy. :)

    Just a regular Saturday for me, no real plans and trying to stay on the straight and narrow.

    Good Afternoon,
    Yes, Connie it is so quiet here!!!
    We have to keep this thread alive. I think we might just be tired and busier than usual.
    I know I still get motivation from this group and definitely want to keep it alive.
    I am going through a time of discouragement with the no loss period although doing
    more exercise but I am sure I am more healthy so that is a definite plus.
    Have a good Saturay.

    Hi Losers,

    Marie- OA seems a good plan for you like my South Beach. Just stick to the plan and the recipes
    and you should be able to take weight off - good luck my freind.
    Janice - Nice car and your cupboards in that garage are nicer than mine in
    kitchen. Can we trade? HA!

    Sometimes life just gets busy and we forget to check in with our friends. So I am checking in. We went to a sailing swap
    this morning at our club. People from our club bring things related to boating that they want to sell. We didn't see anything
    we wanted so we just hung around for a while and chatted and then went home.

    I just finished some Yoga at home with one of my dvd's. Our yoga studio was closed all week due to changing and
    painting and fixing things up for the next group of lessons. I sure missed it.

    We were supposed to see Isaac, our grandson, on Monday but Dave forgot he has a board meeting to attend so we
    changed it to Thursday and Friday. I can't wait to see him again.

    Rainy here and cold, the temps sure have dropped into the 60's. I am rather enjoying it. Now doing some ironing.
    We are having company next weekend so I think I will change the sheets on the bed.

    Enjoy the day!

    We went and bought a new mattress today, it will be nice. I want to get some new sheets and comforter. We ate out at Zaxbys, and I got some mushrooms and a chicken sandwich. I only ate 1 piece of the bread, and not all my mushrooms, but still high in calories. I dont plan on eating there for awhile, I got my mushroom fix. I have tried to take pictures, during my weight loss to see the changes. My husband took a few of me today. Here are a fewqsukmx29kk8o.jpg

    I had a skirt that had the pants made into them, skorts, and I wasnt thinking my husband said that wont be very good to
    wear laying on mattresses, so I changed. That would not have looked very nice. The weather here has really cooled off, going to get real cool tonight and tommorrow night. Well gotta run, I am goibg to get my husband to go look at comforters with me. Have a good night. Janice

    Hi gang. Finally had 10 minutes to post something. I walked around the lake with my hubby daughter and dog this morning. Came home and had breakfast. Took Iris swimming and I swam while she had her lessons. I had a couple errands to run after that. Then I came home and fixed dinner. We had curried lamb with gravy rice and broccoli. I just finished eating so now we are getting ready to go to church. It has been a really nice day here. Mostly sunny and 55+. A little rain about noonish but otherwise sunny all day. And tomorrow we have auditions for Nutcracker. And while that is happening I will work on cataloging more costumes. I swear the costume room has a wall that moves and adds more totes during the night!!!!! I swear I will never get done. Oh well. It needs to be done.

    Thanks for the compliments, thats good to hear, sometimes. I feel like we got a perfect mattress for us, we really felt it was time for a new one. We got a plush one, the one we have right now is pillowtop, but that one felt as good as a pillowtop. It has really gotten cooler here, too. I love it, too. Last night I drained my pool, and it is drying out today. I think I am going to clean up the tomatoes and call it quits, they seem pretty done. I am going to keep the green ones for salsa verde, I seen on the Chew. It is beautiful today, we have all the windows open and I have been really busy cleaning and laundry so I can get outside. I been out a few times, messing with the pool, dogs and the tennis shoes I soaked last night, while emptying the pool. Gotta run, have a nice day, I'll check in later. Janice

    Hello Losers,

    Happy Sunday to all. We are having a gray, raining day. I did my groceries today for South Beach instead of leaving it
    until tomorrow. I washed bed sheets from two of our beds. We are having company next weekend.

    Yoga tomorrow and cleaning my downstairs for company.

    Enjoy your day!

    Hi guys. I finally got a chance to read the posts. It was another nice day today so I walked the dog around the lake again. (I will try to get a picture of the lake to post when I get the chance.) I came home and had breakfast washed a load of clothes took Iris the 6 yr old to Nutcracker auditions. (She will be a toy under the tree). Shaundra had tap rehearsal for the chimney sweeps for Mary Poppins our local theater group is doing in November. So I walked around downtown playing Dodge Tourist while she danced. Then I came home and made a blackbarb pie (blackberry rhubarb) and made dinner. So I cheated on dinner it was last nights leftovers. I just had to make the rice and broccoli and heat the curried lamb and gravy up. Now I am watching a little TV and kicking back with my crochet and I realized I hadn't looked at my posts today. Gee I wonder why......... Tomorrow I need to get the car cleaned out and get my addresses and directions for a few errands I am running on Friday in Seattle. Wednesday I will be leaving for south to get my car fixed. I will be off the grid for 36 hours. In "the real world" for 36 hours and then off the grid for 36 hours again. I will be home Monday morning. The kids are staying home with my parents while we are gone. My hubby is coming with me. We are also taking the dog with us. I hope he does ok.

    Esther.

    Hello Ladies. I read a few pages of comments to get caught up. So glad to hear everyone is doing well. We had a cold front move in late Saturday and woke up to very chilly temps. Should warm back up later this week. I did a lot of walking this weekend and spent a lot of time outside in general.

    Hope everyone has a great Monday!

    Hi everyone! I did end up cleaning up the tomato plants, so no more tomatoes, plus we completely got the pool mess boxed up and put in shed. We got alot accomplished, today I plan on doing alittle more outside. I ended up with over 14, 000 steps, I'm alittle sore today from all of the bending, squatting, and pulling the vines out. I like to have everything neat and put up before weather gets cold. I still have awhile before all that happens, just glad the tomato mess and pool are put up. Have a great day, Janice

    Nancy-That was yesterday, today I am not moving as much. Sometimes its just nice to take it easy, your body must need it. Sometimes this weather motivates and other days it makes you feel lazy. Have a great day, Janice
