  • j29t, that's wonderful news!!! Have a most blessed time
  • Hello all, welcome to new comers, I still feel like a new comer myself. I like reading all your posts but there's nothing much new here so I don't post much. A few things are new: husband built a new enclosure for our water heater which is attached to the side of our house outside. I can't believe he did it all in one day.…
  • Hello everyone, I feel SO much better today!!! I didn't realize how much my sweet Eleanor dog not being well was weighing me down (plus losing Shirley dog on top of that) yesterday me & husband took her to vet & got xrays & labs. She has pneumonia again (had it last July)& her heart is enlarge a little. She's on…
  • It's alot cooler here in California too & cloudy. Took Eleanor dog out this morning to a large ponding basin. she loves being off leash. They opened the parks here but not the dog parks, what's up with that? we just drank the last of the green juice I make so think I'll go to store & buy more veggies to make more. I'm…
  • Hello everyone, I love reading what ya'll doing. I'm not a yard/planting/growing pretty plants/produce person, but I am kind of excited that besides the mint I have been growing & using for our green juice I make, I planted a potato that had growth coming out of it & now there's a plant where I planted it. Can any of you…
  • hello everyone, nothing too new here. Yesterday we went over our youngest son's house. The grand kids were in the pool for hours. It's still kind of cold so I didn't go in. I wore a mask. None of them are sick & they hardly go anywhere so I felt pretty safe. It felt so good to see them. Our son made burritos. I had one &…
  • I agree with what everyone else has said, Id like to give an example of what I did, I used to eat alot of rice with my chicken everyday then when I started mfp I noticed the amount of calories in rice & that I felt more full on protein so I still eat rice but weigh/measure & eat half a cup instead of a big plateful. Also…
  • oh, She's the big dog, boxer/pitbul, so sweet & loved ppl & other dogs
  • This morning, I had to put my sweet Shirley dog to sleep. We've had her since she was 5weeks old till now at 15.5 years old. She was my best friend. We were so close & have been through a lot together. She was doing ok with her arthritis. I had her on suppliments including turmeric. I took her last month to get laser…
  • @j29t I'm glad to hear that. I don't have much to say. We took Eleanor dog to the ponding basin today to run, I'm going to the store, I need to color my hair & make our green juice today, otherwise it's a quiet day. oh, yesterday I went to visit our youngest son & family. We visited in back yard & I wore my mask. Our…
  • I agree with mirtri, good to figure out why, was maintaining too hard? did you eat differently while losing than maintaining? were you too restrictive? don't think of it as starting over, but continuing on the journey & the fact that you're here makes you a winner
  • j29t, awful about your package being stolen, can you get a replacement? so glad your friend is getting better, that's great news!!Yesterday I tried those exercises I mentioned from the senior health group but it was too tame for me, I need it to be more vigorous so I'm going back to Fitness Blender. Went on an hour walk…
  • All of you are such a blessing to me. I do feel better today emotionally from reading your posts about it's okay not having an "important" (what I think it should be) schedule. I also just gave it all up to The Lord. I started logging again today, shame on me, I haven't been doing that, but not really over eating either…
  • you're right barbiecat, about it not mattering too much what's on a schedule, just having one. I would like to schedule some exercise time & cleaning/organizing time though. We don't do much housework either. It's just us two & dogs but this is a good time to do those things that only get done once in a great while I'm…
  • @barbiecat I really want to make a scedule but haven't yet. my life turned upside down due to being out of commission for almost 4 weeks due to my painful arm where I couldn't do anything but sit on couch with pillow to support my arm & including not being able to work at my part time jobs then the virus precautions…
  • Welcome schneezle, I love this group. All went well at park. There was a family with a few kids & 2 dogs way on the otherside from us. When we came to the side of them (still far away) one of the dogs stalked Eleanor dog then ran to her. I stayed calm so the dog doesn't pick up my vibe. My husband was next to Eleanor & the…
  • good morning, I have good news. We took our Susie dog to vet yesterday to be put down & vet said she's doing ok so we brought her home!! Her growths aren't cancer but fatty tissue, she does have copd so pants all the time but doing ok. I give her pain pills & glucosamine , turmeric for her arthritis. I also brought our GSD…
  • currently I like mixing in the veggie garden cream cheese with many things, overall I like to use garlic powder and this "everything" spice I found
  • thought I'd check in also, It rained some during the night & this morning. It's supposed to clear up. by the end of the week it's supposed to be 95 temp wise, I so dread the summer every year. 100+ temperatures & we have window air conditioners, not central so it's not ideal inside. My gym has a nice year round pool & hope…
  • @mariannedelanywright welcome, I found this to be a most supportive group. I admire the wonderful hobbies ppl share here, like about gardening. I don't garden but I've been very inspired to start. My husband has the green thumb & has several plants inside & out & some years ago made a raised veggie garden. oh, I actually…
  • Hello from central California. I haven't posted for a while because I developed a ;inched nerve in my right neck which radiated down to my fingers & it was SO painfull. I had to sleep sitting up with a pillow to rest my arm on. Husband had to do everything. I'm finally much better. Not too much pain but can't do much with…
  • j29t, my arm pain flaired up & it's been excruciating, I could hardly sleep. I don't know what it is but hasn't been this bad in several months. couldn't go to work today so I hope I'm ok by tomorrow night for work on friday. I so admire all of you for gardening, I'm not a gardener although I did plant some mint in a very…
  • Thank you for the info 7sorok, I have heard that but not about taking it before a person gets the virus. I'm wondering if it's ok to keep taking turmeric paste that I make, it's not a drug, or if it's related in any way at all, since I take it for inflammation. I do take ibuprofen when my shoulder pain flairs up, as it has…
  • that would be me too with my 6 dogs, 1 grand dog & 1 foster dog & 2 cats, oh & husband
  • Good afternoon everyone, I too was a healthcare worker. One of our son's & his wife are still working at the hospital I used to. They said there are 5 cases of the virus. Today I went to care for "my lady"(I'm a care giver now) She only went out with me, to church & bible study & stays home rest of the time. 3 out of 5 of…
  • good afternoon everyone, yesterday I walked a LOT, I got little over 16,000 steps in!! I impressed myself. The weather was beautiful & I love being out doors in clear sunny cool weather. I walked about 2 hrs after work with the dogs. I always take my shepherd Eleanor & take turns walking the other dogs with her. I had…
  • oops, it's called 60yrs and up
  • hello, this group got too quiet for me so I went over to the group called 60yrs & up, under "introduce yourself" catagory
  • good evening everyone, love hearing about your day. I worked at the animal rescue this morning. It used to be some kind of food testing plant with animals involved somehow a long time ago before our rescue got it so there are many rooms inside & they put up some larger kennels but most of the small dogs are in rooms with…
  • @teresadannar great on resetting your goals to what you are comfortable with. When I was losing regularly I just used the projection mfp gave me, now a days I just set goals for eating behavior like barbiecat & work on sticking by those. It did rain this morning, supposed to clear up in couple hours. I'll just do some…
