Meanmom, I will be sending out my FQ's in just a little bit. I will have a tracking number on them. I had planned to get them out yesterday, but, it poured down rain all day. So was not able to get to the quilt store. Most of my fabric is from JoAnn's. So, had to go to the Quilt store for the FQ's. They are pretty. But, to tell the truth, I'm hankering for the orange FQ's. I want to make a baby quilt in Grays and Oranges. I saw one on Pinterest that I love. And, grandbaby #2 will be here sometime in June. (Not sure if it is a boy or girl yet.) We may know by the end of the month and may not. Of course, that does not mean I am going off my diet plan. I want, NEED to loose a lot of weight. I can't stand not be able to keep up with those grandbabies. I really want to enjoy them.

My fat jeans fit almost without sucking it in. lol I can't wait to toss them completely.

I started the Beyond Diet with Isabel De Los Rios. (online) I lost 15 lbs in the first 14 days (Jan.). Now, that will taper off as the eating plan changes to suit my body type. I couldn't believe how much you eat on it. I always knew, that I was not eating enough of the right things and way too many indulgences. So, I hope to do better this time. As you can actually eat on this plan. Most of the plans I've tried before cut calories so much that as soon as I went off or changed the plan, I gained it all back and then some. This diet is actually a lot like the Atkins diet, but not exactly. And, I upped my exercise (which was none.). I have been walking my 3 dogs in my neighborhood (separately) everyday to get some steps in. Although, I have started slowly, I am building to 10,000 steps a day. I have really bad knee problems. So, I am starting off slow and trying to build strength and stamina.

Sorry guys, I am in the South. Even the cold days aren't so bad when the sun shines.

I've been going at it hard and heavy as they say...good results so far. Tonight is bridge group and I have been asked to bring my "famous" rum cake. OMG, it smells so good! Good thing there aren't any calories in smells!

You go coffeegirl. No calories in smells! lol I made my husband and son brownies a couple days before they had to go out of town. I bet I smelled brownies in my housed for several days. It smelled so good. I love chocolate.

WooHoo Megan! Congratulations!

I gained 2# last month. I'm not dealing with the disruption in my life very well. Another week in Austin @ my son's apartment. I've been trying to find him a new doctor, one of my options has a 2 month wait list - I am praying for better results. Not one of the six has office hours on Friday afternoons. I've decided to make 2 schedules - one for here and one for the times I'm in Austin. I hate this floundering feeling. I was hoping to sneak into the fitness center and use their elliptical, but the security cameras in there changed that. I guess that should be expected for a complex with 99% college kids.

Pat, I have mixed results with the stairs. Three years ago I was in agony going downstairs..... going up is much easier. I don't have as much trouble these days. I hope they improve your knees. I really, really don't want knee replacement, but I am reaching a point that I may at least have to consider it. I'd rather do the Synvisc. It does not eliminate the pain, but it does make me more mobile. I wish the 3-step brought the same results as the one dose.

I am getting the urge to sew again. I made my hubby a quilt for Christmas and I'd like another in MY colors. But then, of the 9 quilts I made for gifts last year, 9 of them were on my list for myself. Anyone else guilty of that?

Oops! I forgot to sign up this month. When is/was the cut off? I might be forfeiting my purple fat quarter.
I have been doing a lot of sewing. Well, anytime I am not babysitting I am sewing. I had friday off and sewed for 13 hours. Finishing up my mystery quilt before the next one starts. I'm hoping to get my I-spy quilt quilted too. That probably won't happen since I am babysitting 4 days a week for the next 2 weeks. Plus my DD gets home from France tuesday night. I will be cooking up a storm making all her favorites while she is home for the next 5 weeks.
My DS gets home from Korea on the 25th. Not sure how long he will be here. He needs to find a job before he can get a visa for his move to China.
Judith, my 2nd grand is due in June too! We won't find out the gender until the birth. I think it is a boy! My DGD will have her 2nd birthday on the 24th.
I really need something to get me motivated to eat healthy and to be more active. Maybe when my DD is home I can make that her job. Her college degree was in nutrition.

I put the Noom free app on my Android phone. It counts my steps each day. (Of course, it does miss some. And, I also forget to carry it sometimes.) But, as long as I reach 10,000 steps on the counter, I know I got my steps in and then some. I also installed the free app Noom Coach. Which counts the calories. Which I log in every day. And, it gives you extra tips for nutrition or exercise. I know you can download free apps for Apple I-Phones also. And, I know a lot of people use My Fitness Pal also. I want one of those FitBit. But, I have to save for that for awhile. There are so many other things.

Pam H, My grandson turned 2 in October of 2014. And my daughter has missed several appointments due to travel and weather. And also changed doctors at the beginning of her pregnancy. Created all kinds of set backs. So, if they do another sonogram, if the baby is cooperative, we will know if it is a boy or girl. It doesn't matter to me. I actually hope that Brantley gets a baby brother. But, I will adore either one!

Can't get back on track since retreat. Why is it so hard to get back on once we get off?? Went to a BD party tonight and had 2 slices of veggie pizza, 1 cookie and a large piece of banana split ice cream cake. See my PCP tomorrow too --- do we have to step on the scale?
I wanted the purple too.
