    I weighed in at the doctor's office and I am officially down 21 lbs. They have another weight for me when I first went and I am down 24 lbs from that one. This month I am down 5.5 lbs so far.
    I am really happy. Of course it would be nice to have lost more but this is only since Thanksgiving and I am not getting in any exercise as of yet. I know it is not healthy to lose weight too fast, it tends to not stay off if you do.
    I forgot to ask about the Iron stuff and feeling drained. She does have me doing a bunch of blood work but not until right before I see her again in 4 weeks.
    She had some shoulder surgery about 7 weeks ago and I asked her how it was going. Doctors make the worst patients!!!!! She's seeing the same Ortho as I and has not gone for a follow-up apt since getting her stitches out. I highly encouraged her to go to therapy and gave her the name of my Therapist.
    I have a UFO weekend with my quilting buddies. We are doing a x-block pattern. I think I am going to do something slightly different but still an X-block pattern. One that I have had for a few years. I have yet to even pick out my fabrics. I should have it all cut out before 3 today. Yea, right!!!!
    I have 4 hours! It may not happen. If nothing else I can get together backs for 5 quilts that need sandwiching. We set up tables to be able to sandwich on and I will have lots of help tonight if that's what I want to do....... What to do?????
    I may try and bring it all. We get together from 5- 11ish on Friday evening and 9-3 on Saturday. I will be a little late getting there tonight cause I have PT and will get home at 5 and then have to load up all my stuff. Unless I get it ready ahead of time. We'll see.
    Hope you all have a great day today!! Eat well and eat light!!!!

    Good morning everyone! Sounds like everyone is still doing well. I don't weight until tomorrow morning again so I'll find out then what I've done with my weight. I've been doing better about snacking. I did have sugar free chocolate on Valentine's Day but I did count the points in my WW and I didn't go over so when it was all said and done I was relieved.

    Hubby and I go to our Log Cabin class at the local quilt class today. I'm making a fat skinny wall hanging and hubby is making a traditional king size bed cover. We are really enjoyong ourselfs quilting together. I finished the nine blocks I need for my wallhanging so it's lay out the design and put it together. The quilt my hubby is working on still needs 30 more blocks so he has a way to go but I help him measure & cut so it's going alright.

    The weatherman has been predicting freezing rain and snow but so far all we've had is one good day of snow and a couple days of flurries. Not bad.

    Oops, I have to run. Time to feed the dogs and give them their medicine.

    Have a good day and God Bless.

    A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Gayle! Your progress is wonderful!

    Irishrose, thanks so much for the words of encouragement. You must have waved a magic wand, because my scale is moving again! Thank You!

    Jlwheart, I agree with you about the cost of “tv” now. Not only that, it seems that the reruns and infomercials take up the majority of what pay tv has to offer. I was noticing that many good shows are available over the internet for free. The ABC website posts all of their shows for free!

    Went to the JoAnn's store here today. They will be opening a new store in March so are selling everything in the old one. I didn't need any more but fabric was 50% off and thread 75% off so I picked up some fun pieces.

    Tried on a pair of jeans in a size smaller than I have been wearing. GUESS WHAT??? They fit. So keep trying those those clothes. I kept saying a few more pounds and they will fit. So now I can't wait to see what other things will fit again.

    Have a good weekend.

    Irishrose, I picked up one fabric for my spicy swirl. Can't wait until I get the pattern.

    Congratulations on getting into a smaller size. My pants are all getting really loose. I went thru my closet and pulled out the next smaller size and got them all washed up and can wear them too. Isn't it exciting!!!!

    I had to smile when I read about wearing the next smaller size for two reasons. 1) because I'm pleased for both of you and 2) because I HAD to wear my smallest size corduroys today. My normal size black ones have disappeared. I'm not sure how that happened this week. This morning when getting ready to spend the day out of town with an old friend, those pants were nowhere to be found. I already had on a bright red sweater so I needed dark pants. I found a pair of very dark green ones a size smaller. They fit okay, but I prefer the other fit, especially for sitting in the car.

    Gayle, adhering to your diet and doing as much exercise as you can do is paying off. How exciting! Your quilt retreat sounds like fun. I just looked up the school colors for my GS's college. Silver, gold and black. What?? My days of sewing with silver lame are over so that may be a tricky combo. Fairy Frost??

    Connie, good things come to those who wait. The scales will cooperate if we do our part and are patient. Remember that all of use on here currently are females and the hormones have their say on our weight even if we are past a certain age.

    Jeanne, put some yummy gum in your mouth to keep the goodies out while you set up coffee hour then carefully choose the two treats you are going to enjoy and savor them. Gum goes back in for clean up time. You are tougher than a bunch of cookies!!!

    Everose, I went to JoAnn's today, too (100 mile RT for me). I picked up a couple of fabrics for my next SS though I don't need it until May. This daughter is stuck in the 90s, so it will be teal to pink and burgundy - similar to the one on the cover of the pattern. Not readily available colors these days or in more traditional prints. I also bought batting and some black and whites for a BOM. Not too much. Oh, a 9 1/2" square up ruler while they were 50% off.

    Dinner was at Cracker Barrel. Too greasy for my tastes. I hope I only pay for it with pounds, not another gall bladder attack. I walked the dogs this morning and a few minutes ago so that should count for something.

    The person I went with had a giant Hershey's kiss for me. I can live without Hershey's chocolate - it's a good thing Dove doesn't make one - but what am I going to do with it?

    Tomorrow is Sunday, a lovely day to set a goal for the week. A while back, MJ (purplemen) told us that,
    "If you want to meet a goal, you have to have a plan.
    Failure to plan means planning to fail."

    What is your goal for the week and how are you going to meet it?

    I
    am losing weight and getting healthier.

    Wise words. Glenn thinks I'm cuckoo but I meal plan 3 or more days ahead(just dinner). I'm about to throw half a turkey breast in the oven for dinner tonight and lunch or dinner for me a couple of nights. I have tilapia for tomorrow night and will also cook an oven stuffer chicken tomorrow to make sure I have easy access to acceptable protein on the 1st phase of the 17 day diet. If allowed foods are always ready I am more likely to reach for them instead of something else. As soon as the turkey goes in I am off to the gym. Planning to start lifting again tomorrow.

    I went to a family party today for brunch. We had biscuits and gravy, caramel rolls, egg casserole, coffee cake, and fruit salad. I was pretty bad, but it could have been worse. The biscuits and grave was low fat. I make turkey sausage out of 97% lean ground turkey and use skim milk. Biscuits etc were not low fat. I had 100 calorie soup for dinner. O am off tomorrow so I will need to work out extra. I made my nephew a tetris quilt that he begged for. He was really surprised and loved it. I finished it Saturday night. Hopefully I didn't do too much damage today. Tomorrow is a new day.

    I have found that I need to lose about 15 lbs to go down a size in pants. Congrats to those of you who have accomplished that. My day is coming.
    Family get togethers are fun and nice but too often fattening. I am going to visit my mom in Florida on thursday and stay for 10 days. I already warned my sister, who will also be visiting, that we will be working out every day. Hopefully we will keep each other motivated for both exercise and eating right. My mom has been on a diet since the 70's (tops) so she shouldn't mind too much if we try for a healthy eating vacation. We usually eat strawberry shortcake every day when I am there since it is strawberry season. This year might have to be strawberries and vanilla yogurt.
    I have been doing really well getting my 10,000 steps in each day. It has been almost 3 weeks and I think there were only 2 days I didn't make it. Some days I get 12-13,000.
    Last week was a bad one for me with migraines. We had 3 different low pressure fronts come through bringing storms and also headaches for me. They still really need the rain here in Texas, though, so that part is good.
    I am working on a quilt for my daughter. It is a kit that I bought with 5 - 1 yd cuts of fabric with a choice of 4 patterns to use. I love the fabrics which are browns and blues but for some reason I am not crazy about the quilt. It is a 4-patch and rail fence. I will try to post a picture when I get it all put together. I'm kind of wishing I had gone with a disappearing 9-patch.

    meanmom. it's OKAY. You need a feast day so your body doesn't go into starvation mode. You just had yours so now you can eat carefully for the next five or six days, then feast again.

    I don't know where I'm at today. I don't think I ate that much but I didn't eat at regular times or regular food. I baked a friend his pre Lenten chocolate feast. I had a small piece, but the rest is at his house so I can't get into it. Melt a bag of good chocolate chips, stir in a can of sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla. Bake on a cookie crust (not my share). You might as well open up a vein and pour the chocolate in. Another friend calls them Hip Padder Bars. Also had a b'day party for a grandchild and another for a great grand child. I certainly didn't follow a plan today, but things will be back to normal tomorrow.

    Pam, I'm still not liking the snowball and nine patch for my daughter. I really think I cut the snowballs too small. I liked the last one with larger snowballs. I hope the column of appliqued flowers dresses it up. I'm ready to start those. I cleaned the machine I needed for the applique. I put on the rewired motor and now I can't find the belt. Grr. Is it hiding with the lost corduroys?? If your quilt needs something, can you set it on point? Didn't work with the sb/9p, but I can see it working with the 4p/rf.

    Have a healthy eating day tomorrow. I have an article to write for the church newsletter and heaven help me if I'm a few minutes late, so good night, all.

    Hello!
    I am still going to PT and loving it! I have only lost 1/2 pound the last two weeks, but I am going in the right direction.
    If you will permit, I will discuss the Lenten season for a few minutes as it pertains to my goals for the next 40 days.

    In the traditional Church year, Lent is the season of 40 days (not including Sundays) from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras) is the day before Ash Wednesday. It has been the practice to empty the house of all fats and red meats on Fat Tuesday in preparing of Lent, the time of fasting and penitence. I have decided for this Lenten season to participate in the religious observance of 40 days of no red meats, fats, or sugars that are unnatural. Sundays are feast days and allowed to break the fast, so I won't be wasting the frozen beef, etc. During this time I will use the extra income to feed the poor (also traditional) and use the extra cooking prep time to read, meditate and exercise.

    I could not find "Sit and Be Fit" on my tv schedule, but I do have the Walking CD and will use it for walking.

    I humbly ask your encourage during my Lenten practices. Just a PM to ask how I'm doing, atta girl, or the like would help me a lot as I would feel accountable for my vows. If anyone wants to join me, pls PM so we can discuss the details.

    I'm hoping this will help me rid my body of too much fats and sugar and cholesterol. I recently read more information regarding the Mediterranean diet and the health benefits are enormous. Just from the Physical Therapy and following WW my blood sugar is now a steady 100 each morning and my blood pressure drops 20 points by the end of the workout. I have decreased my insulin by 30 units each day since a month ago! Awesome results for exercise 3 days a week, and limited exercise at that.

    More info on the Mediterranean diet:

    Great job Purplemem!!!! I am rooting for you!!!!
    You can do it!!

    I have eliminated almost all sugar from my diet. This weekend I did have one small bite of a cookie and 3 small yogurt covered prezels and a very small spoonful of frozen yogurt, most sugar I have had in a long time. We went to Soup Plantation for lunch. Ate too much but avoided the breads, muffins and except for a tiny spoonful of DH's yogurt, avoided desert. I did put blue cheese dressing on my salad. For dinner all I had was a cup of black beans that I made with a small amount of low fat cheese on top. Oh, and a cup of chicken bullion. I have PT 3 days a week. I asked and my Therapist said that I could go into the deep water for water aerobics class. No running workouts in the pool yet. I am not going tomorrow cause my son is in town for the day and we will spend time with him tomorrow
    Got to wear a smaller pair of pants to church today!!!


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Glenn has been giving up red meats for Lent ever since I've known him so I've gotten used to it after 17 years. It's not that bad if you get a little creative and I add a couple of vegetarian meals each week. He never told me that Sundays are feast days though...hmmm. He has been a good influence because he seldom eats sweets. He might have a piece of cheescake at a holiday meal but that's it. I used to bake a lot but there's no point if I'm the only one eating the sweets. I really don't even miss them anymore and I even gave up soda or anything artificially sweetened a few years ago. I do have HIGH blood pressure even on meds and high cholesterol managed with meds but I really want to get off all of the meds if I can. I understand part of my issues may be hereditary but being overweight does not help. So I've begun again and hopefully this time will not get stuck and give up.

    Mj keep up the good work. Yes even a little exercise helps. I find the weeks where I exercise I feel and lose so much better. I saw my allergy doctor on Friday and he was a mazed at my weight loss. 38 pounds. It is so great when someone notices. Yes I too am going to get the sugars, especially chocolate out of my diet for lent. I find the more I eat the more I seem to need. We rarely eat red meat here since it has become so expensive. I love chicken, could eat it every day. I rarely drink soda any more. I used to drink 5 or 6 diet sodas a day but gave that up too I drink one occasionally for the caffeine. I can't drink coffee.
    We bought a new tv this weekend. Our old one died. We switched from cable tv to sattellite last week too and our newest tv is 12 years old. My DH and DS watch a lot of tv. DH picked out a huge 70 inch tv. Now i need to find a cabinet to set it on. I am going today. I was going to spend today fabric shopping. I have a new bargello quilt I want to make. I have been wanting to make one for a long time, just couldn't find the right pattern. I hope the one I bought isn't too difficult.
    Healthy eating and exercising to all.

    Good morning, all. I know it's afternoon to you, but I was up most of the night struggling with this Lenten thing so my day has started late. I will PM you, MJ. If anyone is offended with the discussion of what is a Christian practice, please let us know.

    I guess Monday is as good a day as any to start becoming more accountable and posting my weight. 145.5, which means I am only down a pound since the first. But at least I didn't gain any being off track yesterday. I just had chicken for breakfast. I have exercise in 33 minutes and I don't like to be running on empty then. Lily and Moira will need to get out, too. My son called last night after I had put on my boots and back brace. At first the furgirls were a very rude about it. The talker was yodeling and the barker was letting him know she didn't appreciate his timing.

    BTW, blondeslave, I am off all blood pressure and heart meds which my doctor doesn't know yet. I'm due for my annual visit so that will be interesting. He occasionally has to be reminded that it's my body and I'm the one in charge.


    MJ, the nurse who does Sit and Be Fit has a line of CDs and videos. You choose one according to your needs. There is a website. I haven't purchased any because I can't decide on which one and I'm the hyper one who could never do the same one over and over. I need variety.

    I'm going to plug another sewing machine from the 50s today - I found the belt right where I put it, but it was out of the bag. I always feel a little trepidation with the first plug in on these older machines.

    Cindy, I'm glad you received my FQ. I will mail earlier next month. I'm not surprised at one of the ones who hasn't responded. The others may just be late like I was. You are amazing working 12 hour days so soon after extensive surgery and keeping up with this. Thank you for your work. BTW, I don't look at losing weight as work. It's exciting to me to see that my aging body can still do so if I want it to. Like I used to tell my students about doing well in reading and math, the WANT has to come first.

    Have a healthy eating day. Eat light and eat well. I AM losing weight and getting healthier.

    Greetings Ladies!!! Yesterday DH and I had a date - first for a long, long time. We (he chopped trees down at a friends ) hauled a load of wood home and stacked it. Then we went to the movie "One for the Money". We have read all of Janet E.'s books and love them so to see actors protraying those parts was really fun. Then we had a gift certificate for Ruby Tuesdays. We are really bad about using gift certificates, so I was glad we took it along. I ordered the Blackened Tilapia with grilled zuccinhi(SP) and creamy mashed cauliflower. The cauliflower was to die for. Will have to find a recipe for it now. Stayed the same on the scale, but almost to my planned weight loss for month. I will now have to rethink things and set a new goal. I need to commit to exercise, but I haven't yet. Looked at Sit and Fit, and even put it in my favorites, but....

    So have a great day. The sun is shining beautiful here and you all are loved.

    We had our weigh=in yesterday morning -- I am down a pound !!!! I was at a level plateau for over a month and getting discouraged. I won't be at my "wish" weight when we go to San Diego in a week, but 1 is better than none

    Congratulations to everyone working so hard

    Hi, I agree with mim - 1# is better than none. I too lost 1# this week. My total loss for Feb so far is 11#. Tomorrow I see my dr and I'm glad to show progress again losing weight instead of staying the same. Being a part of this challenge has really helped me stay on my food program.

    Taboo Tuesday: This week let's try no fried foods. Spray is OK to use. Just nothing fried or deep fried. I made it without the nuts, but was hard!

    Yippee, I can make some pumpkin muffins today. I couldn't bring myself to make them without walnuts. I made it, but that one took some doing. Nothing fried is a no brainer as long as I remember not to 'steal' one of my daughter's French fries tonight. I can use spray for my eggs for a week. Thank you, Pam.

    Pam H, bananas are such a good snack. They have a bad name in some programs because they aren't super low in calories, but they are so packed with potassium for our muscles - and the heart muscle - that they are great choice. Thank you for reminding me. On the list they go.

    meanmom, the healthiest thing in your list was giving up sodas. Your body will thank you for years to come. Hard to do, but worthwhile. From one Coke addict to another.

    mim, the scale heading downward after a plateau is a gratifyiing feeling. Now it will continue.

    Jean, 11 pounds this month.

    I wish you all a day of enough - enough food, enough exercise, enough rest, enough energy to do what you want to do, enough contentment with your situation. I wish the same for me. Judy

    mim, make some lemon water with cucumber, ginger and mint. The lemon will flush the extra water and the others will jumpstart another weight loss.

    I am bummed because I have a varicose vein acting up. I know what to do, but I hate the feel of any pantyhose under pants, especially jeans. I have seen support thigh high stockings but I would think the compression on the thigh to hold them up would make matters worse. I guess I need to go talk to the people at the health appliance store.

    Turkey loaf for breakfast. Maybe dinner from Ruby Tuesday's salad bar.

    It is so encouraging to read about everyone's losses! Keep it up girls!

    Everose, I have read all of J Evonovich's books too. I went & saw One for the Money when we were in Vegas & my husband was working. There was a 16 screen theater right in the place we stayed! I thought the movie was pretty true to the book & how I had imagined everything. I enjoyed it & am glad I saw it by myself as my husband probably wouldn't have liked it much.

    I think I can do the taboo this week ok. The only fried foods I make is sauerkraut balls once a year (YUM!) & we are going camping this weekend & won't have any fried foods there.
