    @natc1954.

    I am new to the group too. Welcome.

    Congratulations on your decision to lose the extra pounds. I, too, need to get back to healthy.

    You may not be eating enough calories during the day. I sometimes find myself hungry as soon as I get home too. I usually plan out my meals and have been making sure I have some healthy snacks for when I walk in the door. I usually have some prepped fruits and veges for those times. I also try to make sure I have some light proteins available.

    Dehydration can also appear as hunger. I have been making sure I drink a minimum of 6 cups of water during the workday - sometimes more. I carry around a 27 oz refillable bottle. My daily goal is to drink a full bottle before noon and another before I leave to come home.

    Do not be too hard on yourself. Set up some mini goals and you will see the pounds will start to drop off.

    Hope you have a good day.

    PS: I was a couch potato too (I started my journey late August). I started by stepping in place during commercials and stepping in place while I was doing household chores such as folding laundry. These were some of the mini goals I set for myself. Within a week or two I found longer walks were much easier and now am walking a minimum of 30 minutes 4-5 times a week.

    PSS: You can do this!

    @ginnytez my classmate friend had it partly removed but now has to have it all removed. sometimes I had thought of going back to liven the usa for retirement or other but the health insurance situation makes such a question not so easy. I think I could go only for a few months of a year taking out insurance or seeing about reciprocity agreements.

    I went to the gym for 1st time in 1 month or so!

    15 minutes on bicycle and about 20 on weight training w arms and abs. arms need strengthening big time but I'm going super-slow (minimum weight lifted or moved and if 10 reps hurts, I cut it back to6 or 5 or 3 as needed) since last time it hurt my shoulder for several days. slow and steady

    cooking veggies for 1st time In many many many days.

    not a relaxing period

    Memories

    A little snippet from my first year in Australia (2009), living in the cabin at the back of a property, off the grid ...

    "walked into the dark toilet block, and shone my flashlight around ... up over toilet ... nothing there to drop on me; on the floor ... nothing crawling around; a quick scan of the walls ... nothing new or moving there; and a flash over the toiletpap......................... !!!!!!!!! A huge huntsman (we think) spider had the roll in its grasp!!"


    My comments on the post:
    This is a huntsman spider: https://farm3.static.flickr.com/2579/3660912595_9b10217c64.jpg
    Only the one holding the toilet paper roll was fatter. They are, apparently harmless.
    Most of the TP here in Australia is scented (ick, but what can you do?) ... we suspect this spider was attracted by the scent.


    And my mother:
    Maybe you can tame one and put it to work digging up your garden!!


    I don't remember what the solution to that particular difficulty was ... I probably got a new roll and left that one to the huntsman.

    Those were the days.

    Changed and did a Personal Training with Jackie DVD since it was new and I wanted to see about it. Then I did a little of Kathy Smith’s Life Weights 2 Lose Weight DVD. The plan for tomorrow is to take the water class.

    Barbie - I have both, too. Wish there were more nutrition books, tho. The one thing I don’t like about Hoopla is that you can only get 3 books per month. At least in Overdrive when you finish a book, you can send it back to the library and get another. The only limit is how many books you can take out at any one time. Fortunately, I have it linked where I can get books from NC and from our county in FL. It’s interesting, I have access to ALL books in NC but only the ones in my county in FL. Wish it was the entire state of FL

    Rho – was the questionable lesion on your scalp under your hair? If so, how did they take the biopsy? I’ve always wondered that

    Wii said that I lost .7 of that pound I put on from Rummikub. I’m getting there.

    DebbieVA – happy birthday to your gs

    SuziQ – I checked Amazon and they do have quite a few books. Now to figure out how to download them onto my tablet….. I’m so sorry about your hubby. Guess in one way it’s good that Vince will go to the MD for every little thing. Unfortunately, not me. I have to be REALLY sick. The hubby of a friend of mine was out in his garden. He felt funny so he called the paramedics. They couldn’t find anything wrong with him but they wanted to take him to the ER. He was changing out of his work clothes when he had a heart attack. The paramedics couldn’t revive him. They were right there! Like you said, when it’s your time, it’s your time.

    Welcome everyone new!

    Natc – lately I’ve been finding that when I’m hungry like late at night, having an apple fills me up.

    Beth – I hope your account is safe, too

    Green Room today. On the way back I think I’m going to stop at Food Lion to get chicken thighs which are on sale to grill for later next week. Many times the meats in stores are frozen so if I get it today, I can put it in the refrig and thaw it before it needs to marinate. Then, if Vince is working with his trains again, I will probably work on the popcorn. The positive is that it keeps me from eating. I do take some carrots and tomatoes out with me.
