Hi all. Here I am mia again!! MFP usually tells me when there are new messages on the topics I have starred. But on this one, there were none, so I thought everyone must be busy & not corresponding. After about 3 days I thought this can't be right & logged in and there were all these posts that I missed! So annoying! Anyone else have that problem?
@renaegry , the kitten is so cute! I like kittens but they grow into cats, which I am not so crazy about. (sorry!) guess I am just a "dog person", lol. I have about the same goal weight in mind, it's been so near yet so far for too long! I just need to buckle down & do it!
@gemwolf110 , the firepit looks neat! I would like to have one, but they are actually outlawed in our town. 3 or 4 of our neighbors must not know that tho, lol.
@cbabie , congrats on 12# loss! That is huge! Glad wrist healing OK.
@TeresaW1020 , yeah on the house! Now you have the "fun" of moving..I really don't like that. But so exciting!
My dd bought the house they were looking at & took possession yesterday. Still haven't sold the "old" one yet, tho, hopefully soon. They keep having showings, not sure why it isn't selling. (well, a few things I would "stage" differently but I guess when they get their stuff out, the agent is going to get it staged, so hope that will help) We got to see the new one today & I can see why they did not want to lose out on it. It is not quite as new as the "old" one (that sounds funny ), but very nice & seems so much bigger.
@trooworld , you asked about our pumpkins, no, they are not super big. I think it has been kinda dry there, so that affects how they grow. When they talk about the huge ones they have at the State Fair (1000#!), I think they say they need a gallon of water a day! Oh well, ours are just for decoration & hopefully jack-o-lanterns for the gkids & neighbor kids. Good luck with the exercise bike, should be good exercise! My sister doesn't even eat avocados that much, she really means no oils, lol.
@theslightedgeforever , great job in Aug! I have read things about the Beck Solution, and think it sounds very interesting. I'm sure all the processing & artificial things in food have contributed to weight gain & health decline in the "modern" world. I had to laugh at your granny taking a cart to the grocery store. My Mom had one also, so when she would have me go get groceries, she always wanted me to take hers. Just what a preteen (or teen) wants to be seen with! Somehow I managed to get it all home without the cart!
I'll try to keep up more!
My plan for Sept.
Walk 10,000 steps/day (altho not doing good the last few days!)
Stay within calorie limits for 1/2# weekly loss.
Drink 64 oz water/day.
