    Rye - I read the web page of Blommer's and I don't think they do tours... darn... I was thinking that would be a great thing!

    OK Ladies ~ I turned 70 today. That was the reason for the hair color change. My mom dyed her hair until her death at 91 and so did my beloved Grandmother! LOL Don't know if I will keep it but will see if I can adjust to the darker color.

    Yeah Carol! Frozen margaritas sounds amazing! :drinker: I'll be 70 next year, so I'll be joining you. :D

    DH has been having anxiety attacks recently, along with IBS. :s It's mainly at night, so he's not sleeping. I suggested we take ourselves off to the local pub tonight so he can have fish and chips and a pint of beer. There is usually something for me on the menu. Last time I had duck and watermelon salad. :) We rarely go out just for us, normally with friends, so it will be a nice change. It's a very informal space, but quite "country pub" like. I have put my face on and will wear my blue tasselled earrings. B)

    Must do a short declutter session after my afternoon avocado and homemade Greek yoghurt. With tabasco. :D

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxx

    Carol: Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!!! :flowerfroyou:

    Barbie: I lightened my hair once in my 20's. It wasn't worth the trouble so I never did it again. I did have a perm in my early 30's. It was not a good job. A neighbor claimed to be a beautician, but she certainly did me no favor. That was a lesson that I never forgot. I never had another perm, and doubt that I ever will. :noway:

    Michele: I am happy for you that the Newcomer's group is still something you value and enjoy. :star:



    I nearly missed a city meeting last night and although I studied diligently, I felt unprepared for parts of the discussion. The meeting was very long & DH was already in bed when I got home. The dog got me up repeatedly in the night, too. :grumble: I hope that today is less stressful..

    It's Wednesday ladies!

    Pip - one of the neatest things about your "before" pictures was the look of love on Kirby's face. I am so thrilled you two found each other. Glad you are feeling better and enjoy the ride up on Whidbey.

    Barbara AHMOD - I am totally impressed by your trail carving/hacking skills. There's something very special about little clearings in the forest like that. Oh, and hole digging! Hope it's cool and unsmokey down your way.

    Katla - that's right, you had that city planning meeting. Our area also needs affordable housing. Before I retired I was the admin for our engineering department and we dealt a lot with traffic issues and upgrades to existing roadways, stormwater, etc. We were the thorn in the side of the developers, lol. Brings back old memories - that was one of my favorite jobs.

    Barbie - good luck at your doc's and hope they can find what's up with your back. It's encouraging that you are able to move more but disappointing the PT didn't have good news. Sending healing thoughts!

    Ok ladies, short and sweet. Back out to water before that red sun starts heating us up. B)

    How do I join this group?
    I am turning 60 in December, currently 173.5 and 5'5" tall. I have been tracking on MFP for 27 days and have lost 6# so far. I have my calories set at 1200 and my macros set at 50% carbs (seasonal veggies, berries and whole grains), 20% fat (olive oil, avocado, some cheese, etc) and 30% (lean) protein. I've been on pretty much on target with calories and seem to go over on fats so I'm decreasing red meats.

    Lanette: We have brown air this morning. Yuck. Our planning meeting last night was productive from my perspective, but the developer has to redo some things and wasn't thrilled with that news. They're in a hurry so I'm guessing they'll be back with the revisions by next month. The residential neighborhood across the street was well represented with people who are not happy with a major apartment complex so close to their homes. We have a serious housing shortage here & the project will help with that issue. I enjoy participating in the planning process. :star:

    galinazo: Welcome to a wonderful group! You can find us again easily by clicking on the blank star at the to of the page. It will turn yellow. From then on, you can find us by clicking on the yellow star. As to nutrition, we all have different strategies. I have a higher protein & fat proportion in my diet than some people choose. It suits me well and I feel energetic and healthy this way. It took me a while to find my balance, and I'm happy with it. Be patient with yourself and stick with the calorie goal that MFP sets for you. They will gradually lower your allowed calories as you lose weight. :flowerforyou:

    Have a great day, everyone!
