    I started to check in earlier today and then got sidetracked as usual.

    @trooworld Maybe that's your dh's way of balancing out his carbs. We all have our ways. I try to tell my dh my way is better. ;) He counters with Yeah, your results are proof of that. lol Now karma has come to bite him. Have you been exercising?

    @teresaw1020 I used to love blue cheese dressing. I don't know what happened. Hm...I might have to revisit that. I've been using Russian dressing for so long that's just what I keep handy. I think I got burnt out on salads and smoothies. Everytime I revisit the Shred Program this happens. What is insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? I just think I'll do better the next time. So far I'm liking this program. Now just to see if I can lose weight on it consistently. Dh said today keep it up. Then laughed and said that's the part you have problems with. lol So true. I get checked every 6 months for skin cancer since I've already had it on my nose. I go Sept 3 to have another one removed and biopsied. Again, my nose. It sticks out the furthest I guess. That's what @cbabie would say.

    @renaegry ooh chuckwagons and chariot races. That sounds fun. So enjoy yourself, moderately. That's the thing I think is to find the balance in life. Life is just not about calories in and out. Good for your run.

    @its_cleo Now I was just thinking if all of you like salads, then why are you all trying to lose weight? See how my mind equates it? Salad=skinny. Then realized you all like beer too. :D How was pizza with your father? I like to cut my piece into two pieces so I trick my mind. I'm learning to like thin crust because it has less calories than thick but I still get the taste of pizza. Oh just read about your successful date with dad. Good for you. I like Indian food if its not too spicy. You can always cut up some chicken breasts and add them to whatever you are making. How about shrimp biriyani. I love chicken biriyani.

    @joannadavison I originally joined MFP because I was prediabetic and I had to watch my carbs. That didn't really go so well the first time around. I'll probably always be under in protein. But that's okay with me. I have to pick my battles. I'm still working on more fiber so I don't get colon cancer. It runs in the family. I could spend all my points on junk. Although I quit WW right when they switched to Smartpoints I think. about 2 months later. I'm no longer prediabetic but still hanging around the border so I'm still working on that. We all have to figure out the plan that will work for us for the long haul.

    @trishastime I like to break things down to smaller units too. It's taking forever to eat this elephant. At least I'm back at the table again. What did you decide on the funeral. I think people should dress up. They don't seem to do that in America much anymore for funerals. I remember people used to dress up to go to church, fly, weddings, etc. But then I'm old school. I'm like have respect for the dead. My kids would say, Mom they can't see what you are wearing. :rolls my eyes:

    @Retiredandlovingit So now you are home and ready to get back to it. Do better than me. It took me a month. That's a built in goal for me for next year's vacation. My dd and I were talking about taking an Alaska cruise this past week. How many nights is it? She'll start her new job in a couple of weeks and then has to start acruing vacation time. So it will be awhile. She went to Iowa state fair today with an old college buddy who just moved back to Des Moines. I think my son will go on the 14th. He wants to see that comedian. She said lots of the presidential candidates were there today but well you know, It's IOWA.

    OK, still doing well. Big stickers everyday. I've been doing well in my gym since I moved it around. I realize now it was the claustrophobia thing. I had my treadmill pinned in. If I could have only figured that out 6 years ago. Better late than never as they say.

    @its_cleo, that is super cool that you are thinking of taking a cooking class! Learning how to use Indian spices and more veggies is awesome. Once you learn the basics you can always throw in some meat to your new recipes. Yayyy for resisting the ice cream!! :)

    @joannadavison, so you don’t accidentally delete a long post to everyone do what I do. That is if you are using your computer and not your phone. I open a Word document and minimize it so only a portion of it is on the bottom of my screen. Behind the Word.doc is our thread. I am then able to scroll to who I want to reply to and then use the doc to type while seeing the comments. Works perfectly! ;)

    @I don’t have funeral clothes either. I will wear dark pants and a dark/conservative top. What did you decide on? :)

    @RetiredAndLovingIt, welcome back and that is great that you didn’t come back with a big gain. I’m sure the scenery of Alaska was breathtaking! :)

    @theslightedgeforever, I go through a bottle of blue cheese a week. Using it as a dip for spicy pork rinds is the best!! <3 I’m glad you are liking your new plan so far. Is it something you think you could do for life? That is what I’m trying to figure out for me. Not sure Keto will be a lifelong thing for me the way intermittent fasting will be.

    It will be another long and busy day.! We have church and then we have to keep ourselves busy since the house is being shown at 12:30 and then the open house is from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. I'm praying so hard (borderline begging) that this house sells this week!! Today we are going to lunch and then to see the new Lion King movie. Friends say it's wonderful and I want to go as a tribute for my daughter who loved the original so much. I have a recording of her singing and dancing to the songs when she was three. <3 Plus, it's hot as blazes and sitting in a nice cool theater will be wonderful. Yesterday, we went to Atlanta and did some research shopping for a new breakfast room dining set. I think I found one at Rooms To Go that I really like and won't break the bank. We had lunch out and I had the blackened salmon with a Caesar salad. So far my weight is holding.

    Have a great day ladies!! <3

    Good morning ladies! Welcome to the new members!

    So I hit a snag in the moving plans place I was going to go can’t take more than one dog. So I’ll keep working on the house but may end up not selling the house will have to see how it all works out. At least the house will be spotless and renewed.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    @RetiredandLovingIt welcome back! Sounds really nice. I would love to do a trip like that sometime. Too bad the food wasn’t as good. I do find veg Indian food is very good, I think bc there is a lot of spices and flavor, whereas meat dishes just rely on the meat to provide a lot of flavour.

    @renaegry beer gardens sound nice, that kind of thing is always my downfall. You are in Saskatchewan is that right?

    @theslightedgeforever yeah I like salads, mainly bc it’s easy. I usually just throw together a bunch of raw veggies.
    Once in a while I will try to make something different. But it’s not very filling by itself.

    Dinner was good- thin crust pizza- Yeah I miss thick crust. It’s hard to get now. I know it’s a lot of calories but what the heck. The thing with pizza is I don’t find it very filling, it seems like it but then I’m hungry shortly after. If I make it myself it’s better. – yeah I love chicken biryani. –that’s great on the gym! I wish I had a treadmill for winter.

    @TeresaW1020 I hope you enjoy the movie, that is lovely you are thinking of your daughter. I’m sure she is smiling somewhere to see this movie come out.

    @gemwolf110 that really sucks about the dogs.
    I’m okay, doing a hike this afternoon. I haven’t done one in a while. It is 9.5 km which is about as much as I’m up to (I think that’s 4 or 5 miles…).

    My weight was down today but maybe will go down even further bc I had French fries last night and so maybe there was some salt. Doing okay with food- start of a new week today. I am on track but ravenous today. Yesterday and today woke up at 4am hungry. I assume this is bc I have dropped my calories down to 1600 (before it was 1800 and I was actually eating like 1900 half the time lol). But it’s okay, I just had half my breakfast and then went back to bed.

    Beautiful day here today but it already feels cooler…really sucks bc summer was so short this year.

    @its_cleo that looks an ingenious way to do assisted pull-ups! I've not had the best week either. Currently going out a lot to take my.cousin & her kids out with mine- Staycation for us but her kids haven't visited UK in their memory! Kids want ice cream, McD's etc & she wants British cake!! Hilarious as I was French, Belgian & German patisserie when we used to visit her!!!

    Hi @RetiredAndLovingIt & @JessT1299

    @theslightedgeforever I didn't think of looking at fibre tracking too. I'm mostly concerned about Cholesterol (mine's the lowest it's ever been, as I've been aware of high level since I was 22 & working in drug industry- that's when we realised it was genetic as my Mam's was very high (now on statins) and so is Aunts & she's stick insect thin). We suspected genetic colon cancer as Dad & Grandad died from it at same age!!!! I'd had some odd toilet habits and doc put ne fwd to be tested. Had various tests & the geneticist got Dad's biopsy geneticallt testes- He'd been dead 11 years- I thought this was amazing!

    @TeresaW1020 thanks for tip. We skipped church today- not got much during school holidays- we helped out at Holiday Club at the start but have so much else going on during school holidays this year. Hope the house sells this week.

    @gemwolf110 - oh no!

    Weather here been awful today. Hoping it's a bit better tomorrow as we want to go to Beamish Museum which is an open air museum recreating the north of England in 1890s & 1913 plus they are just starting a 1950s section. We buy a year ticket every so many years when they've added new bits.

    Yeah giving up my babies isn’t an option for me. So I’ll make keeping this house of mine work.

    Good morning everyone

    @its_cleo - it is great when we can socialize and still stay within the boundaries that we set ourselves. I am just hanging out for the weather to get warmer down under. However today it is sunny, sold wind, but it is sunny :)

    @RetiredAndLovingIt - Welcome back :) Shame about the food, I find it when we used to cruise, a very hit and miss. What did you do on land?

    @renaegry - we do not have fairs over here, we have markets and shows. Shows are only in the major towns where there are rides , stalls where they display and show bags you can buy. A couple of bars may be placed somewhere. There is nothing like chuck wagon etc that @theslightedgeforever mentioned.

    @theslightedgeforever - We have a variant of Russian dressing (mind you I had to google it), we call it Thousand Island dressing. I went out and bout a new jumper to go with some trousers that I wear out. - it is expect to rain, so also need to keep warm. I will probably dress the jumper up abit.

    @trooworld - I am absolutely not a fan of blue cheese (stinky cheese is what we call it). DH adores it but only gets it when we go out for dinner

    @teresaw1020 - Glad you are getting alot of response to your home and that you are finding furniture that wil lnot break the bank :) What are you doing with your puppy whilst your home is open?


    @gemwolf110 _ Sorry to hear the news about the dog restriction, my puppies are my family and I could never be without them. You could always keep your eye for another one whilst you are busy doing up the house.

    @joannadavison - Wow - how great is it to get results from that long ago. Hope the weather turns for you


    Today is day 5, so i can going to try Leslie Sansone 1 mile - see what happens. Wish me luck

    Take care

    @TeresaW1020 It turns out that the mole I had is just a kind of mole that we get as we grow older, I forget what he called it. I call it a growing older mole lol. Doesn't need to be removed, so that's good. You should get yours checked out though. You never know. I hope your husband's can get sorted out. That's great that there are already two showings!!! Woo hoo!

    @renaegry Cute profile pic. Yes, the mole was fine and didn't need to be removed (see above). Thanks!

    @its_cleo It was fine (see above). Thanks for asking. Now, go get that test. ;) A cooking class would be fun! Great job at the gym! And congrats on resisting at the ballgame outing/after!

    @joannadavison It was nothing, thankfully. Doesn't need to be removed. Sea Cadet camp sounds cool.

    @TrishasTime The mole turned out to be nothing of note. See first comment above, thanks for asking. I'm going to the podiatrist this morning. Stay tuned for that one. Yes, my husband's a weirdo lol. My tracking isn't going so well but I vow I will get on the ball this week. For the funeral: do you have just simple black pants and a nice black shirt or sweater? I think that would be appropriate?

    @RetiredAndLovingIt That must have been a fun cruise, and I'm sure Alaska was beautiful. I'm glad you had a good time.

    @theslightedgeforever Yeah, maybe. But he doesn't eat any carbs except for broccoli and cauliflower and maybe MAYBE a little carrots (but rarely). No, I have not. The only time I have is on the weekends and I've found the weekends I just want to chill out. My doctor wants me to exercise every day to help with my sleep problems. I told him I would but I don't know how I am going to find the time, when I get home, I only have about 2 hours before I go to bed and within that time, I have to make dinner and eat and get ready for bed.

    @gemwolf110 Oh no! I wouldn't move without my pooch(es) either. Best of luck to you.

    Hi all. Just a tip if you keep deleting your posts: if you are typing on a computer, type in Word or Notepad and then copy and paste your comments into the box, that's what I do and I never lose my comments. ;) Okay, I'm off to make a loaf of beer bread for work...told them I would. Have a good day!

    @gemwolf110, well I totally understand that you wouldn't give up your doggies! And yes, maybe once your home is all clean and decluttered you will decide to stay. I have had those feelings with my own home. ;)

    @its_cleo, if you ever want a pizza that is super filling you should look up Fathead crust. Totally a Keto thing but so good and I can truly only eat two slices before I feel like I'm about to bust. :D

    @joannadavison, I Googled the Beamish Museum. I'm totally jealous of all the great history you get to explore! I hope your weather is decent for you. :)

    @TrishasTime, our little Maggie Mae goes to doggy daycare. It's a great facility and they have a webcam so I can check on her while she is there. She doesn't love it there but she is well taken care of and safe. How did the walking go? :)

    @trooworld, glad that your "growing old" mole isn't anything to worry about. Hubby doesn't really think mine is anything to worry about either since he is a mole expert. I will have my doctor look at it when I see her next time. Or if it goes all freaky on me. ;)

    Well, our open house was a huge success! Our realtor said about 40 people came and everyone loved the house. We are expecting three offers later today, so hopefully, we will be accepting one of them and get this place sold! The Lion King movie was really good and the memories of my daughter at 3-years old singing and dancing were sweet. She would have loved it! We went to Charlie Graingers for lunch so hubby could have their world-famous hotdogs. I had their brisket in a bowl that was topped with pimento cheese, BBQ sauce, housemade pickles, and pickled okra. So delicious and super filling. They also make their own pork rinds! So, a very Keto friendly place that we will eat at again. :D

    I think I might just stay. It’s home. I just need to redecorate it and make it more mine than other and mine. Might take my stepmoms idea and burn sage to get that bad energy out lol.

    And that’s phenomenal news with your open house! Hoping the perfect offer comes in and have a smooth selling process.


  • joannadavisonjoannadavison Posts: 26Member Member Posts: 26Member Member
    @TeresaW1020 great news about the house.

    @gemwolf110 we are looking to update the house too. I keep seeing fantastic new builds & getting decorating ideas. Partly why I started the declutter & reorganisation.

    @trooworld glad the mole isn't anything sinister.

    Had brilliant day out. We managed to do about half of the museum but the ticket lasts whole year so we will be back again & again. I have walk a lot today. Well & truely exceed my steps. Tired now.
    Had a "cheat day" with old style sweeties & cake from the 1915 shops!

    I’m okay, doing a hike this afternoon. I haven’t done one in a while. It is 9.5 km which is about as much as I’m up to (I think that’s 4 or 5 miles…).

    How was your hike?

    Hi..a couple have asked about our cruise. It was a package for 7 days cruise, 3 days land. I would do the cruise again, but think I would rent a car to do land tour on our own. Some days just cruising..mostly by the glaciers..they were beautiful, and also sad to hear how much they are receding. When we did a land stop, we did bus tour in am & walked around town on our own after lunch. Beautiful weather..60-70. We were expecting much colder than that, lol.

    @theslightedgeforever--yeah a lot of politicians at the fair..been on all the news. Your son is going on the 14th? That is "old people" day, lol. Seniors get in for a reduced rate that day. We want to go, maybe with dd & family but not sure which day. Wednesday & Thurs supposed to be the best weather. Great job with all the big stickers!

    @gemwolf110 --I wouldn't give up my dog either (altho at the moment don't have one, lol), but they are family!

    @joannadavison --I try to keep track of fiber, too. I think it is important.

    @trooworld --glad your mole is nothing to worry about

    @TeresaW1020 --great news about your open house! Hope you get a great offer soon. dd still waiting to sell theirs, but have decided to definitely take the one they want..close on Sept.6th. Something for Mom to worry about, lol.

    Decided to set MFP at .5# loss a week & see how it goes. I do eat most of my exercise calories back, not sure if thats a good idea or not, but that is how it is set up, so going to keep trying.

    I feel awful, I have missed two days getting on here I apologize. My life is been really busy crazy with physical therapy, Grandkids to work, Babies, etc. the good news is I feel better emotionally. I just read this book called The Way home By Lindsey Doss. Some points in the book really talk to me about life and how we look good on the outside, but are really hurting on the inside and we don't know it, until things in our adult life show the signs. I know I feel like I have put bandaids in place sometimes instead of getting the sore healed. It's good to get a different perspective onThings that really happened in life to different people, So my diet may not be the best but my emotions are better. LOL

    Tomorrow I know I wont be on here. appointments start at 8:30 and I seem to be gone all day. So I will try to get on my routine on Wed. I promise the old me is coming back..slowly, but coming back.

    Quick check in. Food has been good but weight has flatlined :| I spent 66 min in the gym doing weights and cardio plus stretched at the end.

    I am managing my dh’s days off. If something unexpected comes up, I just rearrange the plan. Haven’t went over carbs so far. Calories was over by 35 the other day but make up for it later cause I was under by 400 today.

    Morning all. Only a sleep since I logged in!
    @cbabie sending hugs. Different circumstances but I can totally relate to what you're saying. I'm out the other side now but have had rough few years with lots of things just adding up. Big hugs.

    I was wondering how to set the calories to a certain number? And also for those on the premium what do you actually get for the money- I know there are no adverts but I'm wondering if I can get what I need on the freebie or if it's worth my while signing up.

    @RetiredAndLovingIt, that is good news that your DD is getting the house she wants. I hope she can sell hers soon.

    @cbabie, so happy to hear that you are feeling better emotionally!! You can't start to feel better physically if your emotions are in turmoil. You are on your way back!! Yayyyy!! <3

    @theslightedgeforever, I know that you know if you are in the gym doing weights that your muscles are going to retain water so don't get discouraged seeing your weight flatline or even go up a little. Good job managing your plan with you DH being off. :)

    @joannadavison, that is great that you can return to the museum as much as you want with your ticket. I would be there all the time! :)

    Well, I got good news!! We accepted an offer yesterday for our house and it was over the asking price! B) We actually had four offers presented to us. So, now we just need to get the inspection and get an appraisal and then I can pack up and get this party going! I have less than 4 weeks before we are in the new house. :o

    I'm leaving in a few minutes to take hubby to remove the skin cancer on his arm. I'm praying it won't hurt him too much and that it heals quickly. Our little dog expects to be carried around by him like the princess she is. :D Then I have to go into work for an emergency staff meeting. We have had some major drama and we are losing one of our most prominent families. Lots of history but I for one am relieved and I know that this is going to end up being very good for our church. We just gotta figure out how to get on top of ripples this could create. :/

    Have a great day!! <3

    Hi everyone

    Busy busy day - so not on until late


    @trooworld - Thanks - that is what I am working towards. The service is now at 10.30am and the burial is at 1pm. - big gap in between. What is beer bread??

    @Teresaw1020 - Congrats on the offer and acceptance, one worry gone. I hope that the loss of the family in your church does not cause too many ripples. Hope the skin cancer comes out okay

    @cbabie - Yes I tend to stuff the emotions down and look calm and then the smallest thing can set me off. My lesson is to deal with the issues at the time and not bottle it up. I hope your wrist is progressing.

    @theslightedgeforever - Well done on managing DH's days off

    @retiredandlovingit - Hello :)

    @joannadavison - The great thing about this group is that we are supportive in matters other than healthy eating


    Take care everyone

    Trish
