    DD and soon to be SIL came Sat. and Sun. to help with lawn work. The 2 DGD loved running in the grass and playing in the dirt. Just over 6 weeks to go and the wedding will be here. Starting to get RSVPs back and some I thought would come are saying no. A little disappointing but it will be a great day just the same. My MIL brought some tablecloths that are just perfect for the tables! Went Sat. with DD and ordered the flowers, SIL ordered the cake last week. My group has sewing night tonight, I plan to take the table runner fabric and get the cutting done. Just a simple thing I saw on line as there will be a primrose on each with some silver beads. Watching my carbs and I can now see where I'm making mistakes with my eating. I need to be a little more careful but otherwise am happy with my progress. Have a wonderful week all!

    I am still visiting my DD and 2 GS. The baby is doing better. He is having a little trouble with remembering that he is supposed to sleep at night. The 2 1/2 year old is a little bit jealous not to bad so far. My SIL mom was here Saturday and Sunday and we had some fun. My DD and her boyfriend are on their way to visit today. It is about a 4 hour drive here. They will just stay for the afternoon then go visit his mom who is about 45 minutes past here. They plan to spend the night there then they have to go home in the morning to work. They are still in college. Really enjoying my visit. Mommy and Daddy are a little bit crabby from no sleep. Aw life with newborns.
    Not sure about my weigh in. Trying to behave myself.

    What fun to be spoiling a new grandson! He is beautiful -
    I am once again out of town ..... yikes! I am ready to be just home for a bit. Have a home out of state we are trying to sell and have an offer but had an inspector say there were some issues so had to rush back to check the house and meet with the potential new owners. I really hope it works out because I really liked the new owners and think it will be an awesome home for them! (I might be a bit prejudice since I loved the home) -
    Anyhow we'll be here for a few more days and I did pretty good with my diet until last night when everything fell apart and I started the day with lemon cake.... but will get back on track! Keep up the good work everyone!

    I am still around, but moody. lol...I still haven't been called in an antibiotic for my kidney infection. Nurse called today, said test results they sent off came back and showed 2 things found, but didn't say what they were. I have to go back tomorrow and leave another specimen to be sent off again. I hope they ask what they are this time. Geez! In the mean time if I show on their test still infection they will give me another shot. I have never been given a shot for a kidney infection, and have already had one. I have been faithfully on my eating plan, with usually calories left over, but have some swelling in my hands and feet from the infection so I don't show anymore lost from before. It's ok though, because I know I had to have lost some more. lol... It is pretty outside today with the sun shining this afternoon, but it has been raining a lot.

    Ladies............I can't believe the month is almost over. Remember to send me your total weight loss so I can declare a winner.

    I have posted the new thread for May. Here is the link.

    On my way over to May loss, but sent you my loss for this month. I was amazed myself that it was 6 pounds. The most I've lost at once in a long time. I watch what I eat, but I guess that's my problem - I watch as I eat. Anyway, that felt good for April.

    Hopefully I can find somewhere to weigh in today or tomorrow. My DD doesn't have a scale. I doubt that it is a winning weight. I have to go home tomorrow afternoon as I have to return to work on Thursday. Only 15 more days of school for the year.
    My GS keeps wanting to go to the doctor and get ANOTHER BABY! They are so cute I will miss them. Sam( the 2 1/2 year old)calls me G and he wants to go bye bye with G. He isn't feeling well today. Not sure if he is feeling sick or just too much going on around here.

    Remember even if you sent in FQ's for all 3 months, you still need to sign up on the new thread. Just a friendly reminder.

    Well, even though I'm up 2 lbs. for the month of April, I've still lost inches. I guess that's normal. Anyway, congratulations to whoever wins the FQ's. I still just look at the ones I won in March. They are so pretty. haha I'm in again for May. I'm going to continue on this journey because I want it to be a lifestyle, not a diet that I can stop after losing some weight. I like the way I am feeling now, more energy, and my clothes are fitting better. Even though I have joint pains a lot, I did get on my "Gazelle" exercise machine this morning for 10 minutes. I figure a little at a time is better than nothing at all. I "multi-tasked" while I was on the machine...I did my morning praying while doing it. The praying kept my mind off my aches and pains. haha I hope everyone is having a great day.

    I am still staying with my DD. I have to leave tomorrow sometime. I have to work Thursday:-( We went to the park for a little while today. My SIL said he desparetly needed to go fishing. We played on the playset a little while. Then to the grocery for a few things. Her complex had the water turned off all day for boiler repairs so we figured it was a good day to go out. I am going to turn leftovers into dinner. Not sure what I am making yet. I will dig in the refrigerator and come up with something.
    I did walk about a mile today. Not enough. I will have to get back into the routine of behaving myself when I get home.
    Good luck to everyone.

    Me and my husband got out today, and it was so warm and sunny. It was nice. I also got a couple of packages for swaps sent off. Good luck everyone, and have a nice week.

    sorry, not sure if I posted in the last 7 days. I ended up in the hospital for 3 days unexpectedly. All ended fine, so I'm ok now.

    Thanks, Kathleen, I sure hope I don't ever find it again. For almost 18 years I was up to 257, and just couldn't seem to lose any of it. Then two years ago I had my thyroid removed because it was growing, and the doctor said it wouldn't be too long before I wouldn't be able to swallow. Since the surgery I now only eat about half of what I did before - I just get full after eating about half. When I weighed for this week's weigh-in I cracked the 200 mark and hit 198. Plus I am now less than my husband (200) for the first time in years. I want to get back to about 125 or thereabouts. I saved a lot of my clothes from 175-180, so I am looking forward to getting back into them.

    Where in east Tennessee are you? My husband is from eastern Tennessee (Crossville and Pleasant Hill). Maybe we can get together for lunch the next time we come through. We live in the very northwest corner of South Carolina, so we aren't that far.

    Boy, FM, hope you can get back down. Sounds like you have the right attitude for losing. I'd love to get back to 125 or thereabouts, but that ole AMA chart shows for my age, height, etc that a good weight is about 141 - so that's what I'm striving for. Have a ways to go, but I keep plugging at it.
    We are in Talbott, TN between Knoxville and Morristown, just off I-81. Would love to meet for lunch one day. Keep us in mind when you're planning your next trip.

    Congrats FM. Wow, I thought we already had a winner for this month. I must be going crazy or else these months just fly by too quickly.
    I have lost the weight I put on during my vacation so I'm happy about that.

    Pam H, so glad you have lost your vacation weight. That's a good start. I'm sure I won't lose as much this month, as my doctor said she had my thyroid medicine too high, so she cut me back. I have to have it checked on a regular basis, just as I do my A1C for my diabetes, because I no longer have a thyroid, so have to depend entirely on my Synthroid.
