  • Hi ladies, I'm still lurking, but not doing well eating wise. DH is hanging in there. He took a new sleeping pill last night and I couldn't wake him this morning. So another day of him not going to work. He has used up all his vacation and medical time so no work no pay. I left him sleeping peacefully. Guess he will have…
  • Hi ladies, Barbie, I am so happy to hear about Jake’s good cancer news. I’m doing the Snoopy happy dance for him. Just a 30 minute nap? After all you did, I’d be out for a lot longer. Glad you can line dance again. I know how much you love it. Tracey, the pink tutu is priceless. So cute. Lisa, I’m all for medial health…
  • Machka, We are in constant communication and I know he will call me if he feels he needs me there. I'm a half hour away from home, but I have a neighbor that is next door that could go and check on him if need be. Lenora, sounds like you are doing well advocating for yourself. It is frustrating when you have to be the go…
  • Hi ladies, Thanks for the welcome back. Was up at midnight and then again at 5am with DH. He's a mess and I'm worried. He told me he sometimes has trouble knowing what is real and was isn't. He didn't take the sleeping pill last night as it wasn't helping a whole lot (2 to 4 hr sleep) and left him so groggy he can't…
  • Hi ladies, I'm back - again. A lot going on here in Vermont. Leaves are quickly changing and I'm not ready. Finally got my cast off, transitioned to the boot, and now I'm in sneakers and doing PT twice a week. Foot feels pretty good. Now it's my husband's time for health issues. Insomnia (sleeps about 4 hours with a strong…
  • This my second cast. They put one on right after surgery and two weeks later when I went in for my first post op visit they took that one off, checked out my incision, then put another one on. My surgery was July 26th and I’ve had a cast on since then. I will get this cast off for good on the 5th. Then I’ll go into a…
  • Tried to walk but just couldn’t do it because I’m not in a walking cast. Guess I’ll be on the scooter when I go back to work next week. Can’t wait until it comes off on the 5th!
  • Hi ladies, Weighed in this morning and up a little bit. Not surprising as I’m pretty much a couch potato. Tried to step on my foot today as I can start to put weight on it starting Wednesday. No pain but won’t be able to walk on it as I’m not in a walking cast. Think I’ll still need the scooter when I go back to work next…
  • DrKatie, I was so happy to read of your spa day. What a wonderful way to take care of yourself. Wendy, your last horse pic is my favorite so far. You could make cards out of them. Barbie, good luck with the MRI tomorrow. I’ll be thinking of you. Well was really off balance today. I think I’m just getting tired of the…
  • Finally I painted my cast. Took longer than I thought it would. I think it looks ok. I’m no professional. Terry
  • Lisa, I also cry when I get mad. I’m just not a person that likes the mad feeling so I think that’s why I cry. If I have to confront someone I wait a few days before I confront them. Helps me not cry once I’ve had time to think about it and release some of the emotions. Of course you don’t always have the option of time.…
  • Happy Birthday Carol!!!! Hope you are doing something special. Lenora, no more falling. Those boxes just aren’t worth your getting hurt. Terry
  • Congratulations to all the “losers”! Well done girls! Pip, you haven’t changed and are still beautiful with that killer smile! Didn’t do a darn think today except take a shower. Guess I’ll try to do more tomorrow. Terry
  • Hi ladies, Rebecca, toot all you want. Well done! Pip, love the picture and the great smiles. 5lambert, slow and steady won the race. You go girl! Barbie, good luck at the physical therapist. Lenora, I never did Facebook and never missed it. Don’t trust it either. Nothing really planned for today. Tired and slept in. Hope…
  • Rebecca, well done girl! I agree with you that we have to not only appreciate the feeling of smaller sizes but the mental “feel” of smaller sizes. Wendy, what fun creating those pictures. You have a good eye. Allie, phew! That will give you a little breathing room. Well I felt so good having changed the sheets that I…
  • Sheets changed and shower taken! Win win!
  • Allie, good luck today. I’m sending you strength. Machka, you could use Command Strips for hanging rather than nails. They come in clear plastic so they can wouldn’t show much. Not sure if you can get them where you are but you could order some. They work beautifully. Karen, amazing art work. What people can do blows my…
  • Just wanted to say hi. (((Hugs))) to those that need them. Happy dance for those who are celebrating. Good thoughts sent to those with a difficult situation coming up. Terry in VT getting really really tired of being on one foot.
  • Hi ladies, My DD took me out today and we went to lunch. We had a good time. I haven’t really had a chance recently to have a good talk with her. I gave her the necklace and she loved it. She wore it tonight when she went out for dinner with her friend. Terry
  • Janet, what a beautiful GD. Your newest ornament is awesome. The cameo is a nice touch. Well I’m going to actually try to do something today. I told my DH not to clean up the kitchen last night and that I’d do it today. And if I can figure out how to use my sewing machine with my left foot I may try to make a new couch…
  • Welcome to the group. Wow you really have had a time of it. Sorry for your loss. Sounds like you know what you need to do which is important. This is a good group who are a good support for weight loss as well as life in general. Stop by often and just chime in when you feel like it. What do you want to be called?
  • Rebecca, beautiful work on the ship.
  • Heather, Snoopy happy dance on receiving documents! Another step reached.
  • Tonight is my DD’s last class and then she will have her Associates degree. She has worked so hard going to school nights and working full time. I couldn’t be prouder of her. I wanted to make her something simple that she could wear every day. The smaller circle represents her before college and the larger represents all…
  • Sue dew, glad you are feeling better. Shanson, welcome to the group. We are quite chatty and there are a number of us so if you could tell us a little about yourself, where you are from and what you’d like us to call you. Helps to remember who’s who.
  • Good morning all you beautiful ladies, Barbie, I’m so glad you are feeling better. My DH has back pain and it’s so debilitating. Maybe turmeric would help the arthritis pain in my shoulder. How much do you ladies take per day? Same ole same ole today. I think I’ll read for a little while before I get up. Hope everyone has…
  • Allie, I’m so sorry for your loss. Beth, your vacuum cord reminded me of some simple things I love Getting into a bed with clean sheets Dancing and singing in the car Frozen grapes The start and the end of books Clothes with polka dots And many other simple things. Terry in VT
  • Hi ladies, Heather, you are so close now. Machka, of course you are going to the graduation! You deserve it girl. I expect to see a picture of you in your hat and gown. Went to the dr today. First post op visit. They cut off the cast so I got to see what it looks like. Stitches and dried blood. Dr was impressed with my…
