  • Flea congratulations to DH! Vicki thanks! It's about time for taxes. I'm so reluctant. So childish! Annie in Delaware
  • Hi. I'm reading "Better than Before" by Gretchen Rubin and it's a marvelous book! The blend of studies and personal anecdotes makes it credible and enjoyable. She offers lot of strategies to help build the habits we know we need, like eating veggies and exercising. Thanks for the recommendation @barbiecat ! I've decided I…
  • Good morning ladies! Tracey good job on both logging and decluttering! You rock! Debbie good job on logging! You do so much walking and Zumba. You are very active! Heather and Lisa you are both navigating your health challenges with intelligence and diligence. Good job! Well I bought a pedometer but it turns out you have…
  • Tracey good luck at the grocery store. You can do it! Barbara my strategy with my dad is Buddhist inspired. He is 89, and reckless. He is going to have an accident sooner or later, and there's not much I can do. So I try to distance myself from the whole issue, and not ruin my life trying to control him. I do my best to…
  • I did my first routine of habits! Yay! Yogurt then dress then bike 10 mins then walk 6 mins. I'm on my way! Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! Machka I'm with you on the nuts. A serving only whets the appetite. Sad because they have some nutrition. Pip I love the new arrangement. You made good use of the window - looks like a cozy spot. Lisa hope your appointments go well. Good luck with the health system. Thank you all for your comments and…
  • Barbie thank you! Breaking the huge weight challenge down into actionable pieces is a big help. One step at a time! We can do this! I resisted stress eating today. I put air in my car tires because the dash light was on. Instead of going off, it started blinking! I stood in front of the chocolate for a minute but decided…
  • Hmm. The scale hasn't jumped back up yet. I had seven glasses of water yesterday. I feel like I haven't got a stable baseline yet. We will see what tomorrow brings. Meanwhile I did my ten minutes on my bike and six minutes walking even though I was awake half the night. Yay! I can tell I'm out of shape when walking is…
  • Michelle in NV great work on decluttering! Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! I weighed myself on my new scale midday yesterday at 190. First thing this morning I hit 184! Six pounds overnight! My weight always fluctuated a lot, but that's incredible. I don't quite trust it. But I must have weighed myself six times yesterday (new toy!) and it gradually came down. But still, what…
  • Terri thank you! Noom starts my day with a little pep talk about dieting. Very cheerful. That little bit of encouragement is valuable! There's not that much new information, just a little boost with just a touch of choice, personalization, and commitment. I answer some questions by clicking on a button that says "I commit…
  • Michele thanks. Your level of exercise is impressive! Hope you are enjoying Florida. We still have snow on the ground. I am paying for that mocha latte with insomnia. I do so much better without caffeine. And I have a busy day coming up. I decided to attend a church service by Zoom. The socializing will be good for me. And…
  • Heather Yay! So glad you found some help! Welcome Debbie in Manitoba! Annie in Delaware
  • April sugar in the evening keeps me awake, both directly and because it makes my joints sore. I did ten minutes on my bike! Yay! Plus six minutes walking cool down. Annie in Delaware
  • Things I meant to say - Margaret you are so right about dead animals. Even the non-diseased ones have worms and lice and pests. Eww. Machka Fencing sounds wonderful! Enjoy! Sue so sorry about your bad tenant. Some people are just abnormal. And I am still shopping. I found exercise/habit tracker calendars on Amazon but I'm…
  • Well I got the bathroom scale set up. Next I need to figure out how to weigh myself first thing in the morning when Teddy is waiting to go out. Lanette I don't know exactly why, but my knee does better on the even concrete in the basement than the uneven sidewalk concrete. I should probably do a little of each but today…
  • Well I bought the Rubin book and a simple pedometer. I have to stop shopping now, and get back on the bike! Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! Tracey I agree the cupboard looks small there, and a second one might look better. But then I tend to fill all my wall space with shelves and drawers and always more storage! I'm sure you will figure it out, you have an artistic eye. Heather hope you can get a diagnosis of your leg pain. So frustrating…
  • Lisa sorry you had a bad day. Well, my dad interrupted me five times while I was trying to read so now your comments are all jumbled in my head. Barbie I looked at Rubin's book on Amazon and put it in my cart. You are wise, I don't know why I thought the grass might be greener with Noom. I did well today. I bought muffins…
  • Well I signed up for a seven day trial of noom. It wants me to get my own scale and drink more water and such. We shall see. It's expensive to keep going. And the coaching is extra charge. Ouch! They already got an extra $30 from me on a $10 trial week by being unclear about extra charges!! Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! It's chilly but sunny here. Today's mission is to go see my aunt, but I ought to get flowers and maybe muffins first. My best friend in Virginia just joined weight watchers. I did that once a few years back. I loved the in person meetings and weigh-ins. I didn't like the driving or the point system. I…
  • Good morning ladies! The smallest place I lived was a closet under stairs. It was that or share a room and I really didn't want to share. That was one summer during college. My aunt is home, with some at home nursing care for pneumonia. I gave in to the Valentine's Day sale at Our time, a dating site. I had a lucky guy in…
  • I spent all morning trying to guess a good time to go visit my uncle by texting my cousins. Then I saw a vehicle marked ambulance, and I freaked thinking my uncle had fallen. So I called and it was my aunt coming home. They were busy and said they would call back but didn't. So I'm still thinking I should go over, but they…
  • Rita You probably tried jacket pockets. But if there's a hole in the pocket the watch might be down inside the lining. Just a thought! No word on my aunt today. Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! Well my aunt is in the hospital with pneumonia. I should have gone over there to the house last night, but I just sent my Dad. I was trying to pretend it's not serious but it really is. She is 88 and my uncle is 95. He would be in real trouble without her because she does his nursing care. They have…
  • Lisa I think a big piece of knowing how to cook is being familiar with the specific equipment. For example, I know that this oven is usually 25 degrees below the setting. And I know which knife is sharp and which pans are not really non-stick. So I'm doing better at cooking here just by trial and error. But I still stick…
  • Lisa one time I was asked to join a cookie exchange among the higher-ups at work. I made healthy cookies, sort of like what you described. They all made fancy high sugar cookies and were very competitive about it. I was quite embarrassed. That was when I thought I could cook if I really wanted to do it. Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! Machka I have Tailor's bunions too. My shoes never fit quite right. Claire, welcome! Heather our hearts go out to your son and his friend. We are expecting a sprinkling of snow today. My dad has a dermatologist appointment, so I will drive. Hope there's no ice. I'm thinking about a mocha latte later.…
  • I am thinking about Valentine's Day and glad I don't have to participate this year. I have lots of wonderful memories of various men, but no regrets. My only true love is chocolate! Annie in Delaware
  • Good morning ladies! Beth yes my dad gets his hearing aids cleaned and tweaked periodically. Seems like he might not be a candidate then. Yes there is a link between hearing loss and dementia, supposedly through the isolation. Last night Dad couldn't find the ice maker on the refrigerator. Every day is a new challenge. But…
