    Hello and welcome new people - great group here.
    Lana - I did not know your history - I am sorry you are having such struggles after beating cancer. That sucks. Cancer sucks. I will be sending healthy thoughts your way!
    As explained by DH also does not helpful in my journey. Doesn't sabatoge, but feels that we eat "just fine" Takes more will power and makes things more difficult.
    Have a grand Tuesday! Lurking...

    Just for the record, I went to UNC's urgent care/family medicine place. They doubled up one of my meds, which should help the blood pressure. I have a physical scheduled for June 7th. Yay.

    Seems my production log is missing and Sup thought I moved it, I dont know how, so I dont know if they have found it yet. Just one more thing. I have a "no drama Llama" plaque in my cubicle maybe it needs to be bigger.

    Lana - glad you went to urgent care and that you are getting a physical. Does that mean you have a pcp down there? PCP is main your physician you get specialist referrals from.

    Yuck no more work talk - lavender for me and cuddle up with Miss T

    Wishing all a good night.

    WEDNESDAY

    Good morning,

    Rain ends soon so they say for awhile. Nice to sleep in.

    Drink your water - stops many of the urges to eat.

    Wave to all who follow. Lurking.

    Lana - My biggest concern and reason I am on this weight loss journey is to prevent diabetes. I don't know why, but it is one of the diseases that scares me the most. I think because of the needles.

    Tilliesmommy1 - I try to be a do-er as much as possible, I truly believe in the "it takes a village" not just in raising children but in many different areas of our lives. Love the quotes

    amybkatherine - I think that by not giving up you will reach your goals. It is a struggle for sure, but it seems to me that you are determined and that is a good motivator.

    Lynn - My DH thinks we eat fine too. As a matter of fact his eating has gotten worse over the last year or so, I have finally started making two meals if I have to. It is just us most of the time so it's really not that difficult it's just a pain in the butt. He needs to lose a lot of weight, but like smoking only he can decide when to do that. Sorry to hear about your Dad. Watching our parents struggle is a great motivator for us to change our ways.

    Yesterday was a terrible day food wise, I was hungry all day, I'm not sure why. Then when I wasn't hungry and eating I slept. I didn't do anything yesterday at all except watch tv, sleep and eat. I even ate McDonald's for supper. I haven't done that in months.

    Today is a new day, the sun is shining, the wind isn't blowing like mad, and I feel energized so I may get some things accomplished.

    We are keeping Michaela overnight so that Lauryn can take an extra shift tomorrow. This allows Lauryn to just worry about getting Jonah to school and getting to work and gives Michaela the sleepover she has been wanting.

    We will have fun I'm sure.

    @amybkatherine I am also a sucker for cheesy snacks and nutritional yeast is an excellent popcorn topping so satisfy the siren call of cheeeeeese.

    @Twiley510 Great dress for a fantastic figure!

    WW is calling us all back this season I guess? I’m starting too 😮

    I think one of the pit falls of weight loss, beyond sporadic motivation, is re-mapping what is “necessary” in a meal. Do I need pasta or rice to round out a meal? Absolutely not. But rice is so tasty 🤤 So I’m loading up on veggies this season as my meal base, buying tomato sauce but passing up the bogo pasta. Also all the kosher noodles and matzo are still on clearance from Passover and that’s a hard bargain to pass up. But no I will not give in!

    I’ve been working in the garden and swimming laps but also have been chugging ginger ale like it’s the elixir of life so it’s time to cut that kitten out.

    Lana- I have thought about joining short term... I do not have support from DH... he sees no reason for me to lose weight and shoves food in my face, every chance he gets.. just would be nice, if he were more understanding and supportive....

    Weight isn't just about looks - tell your DH that. Seriously.

    I kept my weight on for so long because my DH is obese, and he didn't care that I am fat. *kitten*

    The kick in the head was my Estrogen-Positive breast cancer 2016/2017. My weight contributed to my getting cancer, and I am a mess even now because of it. I am on a treatment/prevention plan which must suppress all estrogen my body makes - and it is made in fat cells. Because of the meds, I now have dangerously high blood pressure (getting treatment now), but those meds aren't working well. I feel tired and slow. I am getting tested this week to make sure my kidneys are functioning well enough - the anti cancer meds affect everything. I have a high risk of stroke! FFS!

    My point is of course that being at a high weight really can screw you later in life. It's not about how we look!

    Thank you...I don't really understand his thinking. His Ex wife was a bean pole... so, maybe that has something to do with not wanting me to be skinny. I don't want to be that skinny. I just want to be comfortable in my own skin. Both of my maternal grandparents are/ were Diabetic. Gma is overweight, Gpa couldn't gain a pound if he tried. So, I do know I should be cautious. Not to mention other issues, like you said. I'm just trying to do my best. Turn down his attempts at feeding me, as much as I can...I also, just started the 4 week HIIT walking plan on here. Only on day 3... but, i'm trying... it's amazing all the issues of being overweight or eating too much junk can cause.. I hope the BP meds can help you... Hugs...

    @arniedog74 - Maybe his ex was obsessive about it and he's worried you will be too. Who knows what goes on in someone's head. I agree that you need to do it for your own health though regardless of what he says or thinks.

    Hi All~~

    Two ladies actually showed up for the Meetup walk scheduled for today, so I went on a trail I'd never been on and clocked 3.5 miles. Right hip hurts a bit as a result, but I'll live.

    Lynn - Sorry to hear about your father. Words are failing me here--big big hugs~~

    Everyone else - big hugs all around - we all could use them.

    I had a very nice weekend away with my daughter, her fiancé and his family. I am so thankful that I was invited and that I have had the chance to meet his family before the wedding.

    This morning as I was reading through posts my husband said that there was a little boy about 2 or 3 years old walking on the street between the trailers and he didn’t see any adult around. I stood up and saw the little boy go into our neighbour’s yard.
    I went outside to help this little boy and found another one in our yard, probably 3 or 4.
    These boys both took my hands and we walked the whole trailer park trying to find where they belonged. They were only wearing pj’s and rubber boots. I asked anyone I met if they knew them, until I finally came up to a man who said that his wife had seen these two out on Saturday wandering around alone. I decided then that maybe the best thing I could do for these two was to call the police. So I did. I had been outside for over 40 minutes at this time and no one had come looking g for them. The police came and were going to take them to the station and call CPS.

    Shortly after Rodger and I decided to go out, as we were driving out the RCMP officer told us that they found where they belonged and told us the address in case it happens again.

    I hope these parents put a lock on their door so the kids don’t sneak out. I’ll worry about them now.

    Thank goodness for you! This happens too much! Parents are too busy with whatever they're doing and, the kids wander off. So sad. Glad you called police. Especially, after finding out it wasn't first time... hope this is enough to scare parents...

    That is quite possible. I am doing my very best to make good choices, at least for breakfast and lunch... dinner time, i'm going to do same and what isn't great, I will watch my portions...

    Hello all.. I'm here once again.. not sure if I know anyone in this group but I'm looking to make friends and need support to meet my goal of 150lbs. I am currently 185lbs. Back in June of 2018 I was 205lbs, went on my fitness pal and lost to 178lbs.. but back at the 185 now. For some reason I've just lost my drive to keep at it.. maybe some friends will help.. BTW my name is Nikki.. 😃

    Dawn your exercise is outside of dh and food, so let that be your calorie burner so that it can be the one thing you can control and help balance things out. What is the HIIT plan?

    Nikki - welcome, feel free to post when you can.

    Dishes done - now to keep my Amazon.com shopping to my "list". Edit got 3 history/fictionish books to read. Still trying to figure out how to "rent" Microsoft Word and Excel... will keep looking on that one.

    Wishing all a good night.
