    Had a rough, emotional week, but I'm OK. Weight is 196 which is down .6 and that is great considering I didn't follow through with exercise. Been keeping tabs and support over a few people in my life so cortisol is high, sodium too. I'm greatful to see a drop and have every intention of continuing to plug away at my goal.

    Good work everyone.

    Barbie Bernie is very cute and playful. I like the picture you have of Bernie and one of your fogs looking out the window together you posted some time ago.. <3

    Eninad great on your weight Your goal is getting in sight. Wonderful <3

    Connie. I baked a sweet potatoes yesterday and had my timer on and just left it in the oven till dimmer time and it was good and moist , did not need any Butter just cinnamon
    . here is my quid line I am going to try to follow I just might have a baked sweet potatoes most days. Too.

    Plant base guild line diet

    2 fats such..... as butter, oil.etc

    2 fruit..... such as medium Banana, Strawberries etc

    4 vegetables....such as,2 c greens, 1 c calif.,1 c mash sweet potato,1 large tomatoes etc

    5 Protein, such as 3/4 c tofu, 1/2 c beans, 1 egg, 13 almonds, 1 c milk etc

    5 grain such as 1 slice bread. oatmeal 1/2 cook pasta,3 c popcorn 1/2 c cook brown rice.etc

    Breakfast was oatmeal and banana and 1 c of skim milk.

    today I plan on a big salad with veggies and peas thaw out frozen peas. 2 T salad dressings for lunch. for dinner 1/2 black eyes peas. 1 c asparagus salad with vignette salad dressing.
    This plan is a lot like the AA diet plan a friend sent me They don't eat casseroles or soup for it is too hard to count ingredients if you do. So for a while I am going to eat plain plant food

    I never treed tofu so I don't know about including it in my plans.

    Good Morning Misfit. Have a great day
    Rain coming tomorrow and a cold front yippee

    Marie.. I love sweet potatoes and eat them every day as my starchy carb. I usually peel, cut, cook, and mash just like white potatoes, and add cinnamon and truvia. I do a big batch so I can just measure, warm, and eat. Hubs likes them, too, and they are better for him than the white ones.

    I tend to eat the same things because it makes it easy.

    Sweet potatoes are good any time and I order them in restaurants, but unfortunately they are deep fried.

    I just got back from Yoga class, it was 45 min and I wish it was longer. I liked the instructor, she was very young but good.
    I bought a Tshirt to advertise her studio too. It poured rain all the way there and finally rained at the cottage and feeling
    some relief. Last night sleeping was tough with all the humidity and no AC here at the cottage.
    I am just happy I have Wi Fi to stay in touch with everyone.

    MARIE - Bubba is so cute and BARBIE, your picture shows how curious cats can be.

    Hello to everyone else.

    well hubby help me bake a Texas sheet cake for the family that install our A/C A disaster I told him to turn the oven on to 350 on bake
    h E TURN IT ON AND I DID NOT CHECK IT OUT It got so hot. He must have put it on cleaned oven. Well It turn out OK I cut a little square out of it and check the texture Seems pretty cake like so put the little square back in place and cover it up with icing. So all is well I ask him where was he all the years I been cooking for us. In his recliner watching TV. I did not train him right.

    Good morning, misfit losers! Happy Wednesday!

    Marie..so good of you to bake a cake for your neighbor and glad it turned out okay despite Jerry's snafu! Mine does not cook much either except easy stuff he eats.

    Faye..good to see you and it must be so exciting to have your parents there!

    It's cloudy and humid today. I am really ready for cooler fall weather...sick of the heat.
    Gym day with trainer then a mani/pedi later on.

    Make it a great day, losers! Stay strong!

    I think I sent the rain your way ladies. We have had rainy weather for a week. Today is gorgeous. I'm hoping to get the lawn mowed today.

    It finally rained yesterday and it cooled down, but alas its another hot one today but the wind
    is blowing a bit. I just finished a 45 min walk around the lake and had to change my T-shirt
    I was sweating.

    Our friend Tom arrived last night and we all going fishing today.
    MARIE - We don't know what happened to Izzy and really don't want to know. I talked to a
    member of our sailing who is a veteranian and she said it was an odd case. She thinks
    he had something wrong with him like a disease.

    We got some rain today also, now sun is shining, but its suppose to be alittle cooler. The state fair is starting tommorrow and the weather is normally very hot, so it will be nice being cooler. I went to my sisters and took her some tomatoes and went to the store for her. She is doing okay, but she has lost 10lbs since they weighed her last, which she couldnt afford to lose. She weighs 103 now, still better than the 95, she was. I tell her I wish I could give you some of my weight, I have plenty to spare. She says she'd like that, it would make her have more energy, she says she dont get hungry and has to make herself eat. Also her teeth have gotten to wbere she only wants soft food. She does drink boost, I'm going to have to start bringing her more. I bought her some creamed spinach and cheeseburger mac when I went to store you microwave. Well I thought I would fill you in on her, shes been home 2 weeks. Well gotta run, the scale and me are fighting today. Janice

    The drought continues in NW Washington and our neighborhood is on even stricter rules for watering. We collect water in a big bucket in the shower while the water heats up and use that on our plants.

    One of my new 52.5 pound dumbbells came today---unassembled in a medium flat rate priority mail box. Jake brought it in from the mailbox across the street. I wish I could have seen the mailman when he put it in the parcel bin.

    Marie, I see that you've added eggs and milk to your food plan...it's hard to get enough protein on a totally vegan diet.
