    Oh no! I know, life can surely dampen our ambitions to eat right. Stay positive, and start fresh each day.

    I mailed three months of delicious FQ fabric that is worth not eating that cookie for! Good luck everyone!!

    Hey all. A bit better on the stress front but not much. I caught a nasty cold! At least I don't have an appetite...
    Quilting is definitely not for the faint of heart.

    I was way heavier than I should have been, but in October 2015 I fixed that -- not a good way to do it, but I lost 35 pounds when I had pneumonia -- I had a reaction to an antibiotic overdose and couldn't eat solid food without getting sick! I have gained back 2 pounds since October and I don't want to gain back any more! I'm trying to be careful so that I don't gain any more, or lose any more either. Losing more would be bad, according to my pulmonary physician!

    Susanna I cracked up at your comment! I'm like you - nothing is safe from me in the freezer. I used to think things were until I told my mom to put her Girl Scout cookies in the freezer to save them and she laughed and said she could eat them frozen. Wish she hadn't old me that.

    All my success went down the drain with my peek-a-boo procedure and I'm gearing up for February. Have started riding my bike again which will also test the allergy stuff my DR has me on. No symptoms for over a month now.

    I suspect we will see some impressive loses for January.

    No impressive loses for January here. Chocolate is too good of a friend to me. I am down some but not enough to win. But down is good. I have been thinking about adding a water aerobics to my routine. I haven't actually made it there yet. I actually dug out my swimsuit tonight and almost put it on to go. But I got lazy and skipped it. Leann,putting things in the freezer does help me a little bit only because my freezer is down in the basement and I am often too lazy to go down there to get the goodies. But I can eat almost anything froze too.
    There is another meeting tomorrow for my kindergartener. This is to discuss the behavior improvement plan that we created. HA HA! No one involved really expects it to work, it is just a formality to show that they have tried everything. Half of the problem is that she truly is possibly bi-polar and her other problem is mom. Rudest child I have ever met.

    I have perfected my own style to eat frozen cookies. I hold the cookie to my mouth and exhale through my mouth on each bite. Works great! We are quite the group.
    I received the black/whites from my December winnings. I love each and every one of them! Really makes me want to use them right away. Thank you, everyone.

    Ok that's me too. And right now, I am thinking about ice cream. Even with the temp in the 20's outside!

    It is never too cold for ice cream. Pink flowers I received your 3 FQ today.
    We had a meeting today to discuss a behavior improvement plan for my kindergartener. OMG! It was scheduled for 45 minutes. I was only there the first 30- it lasted over 2 hours. Mom makes excuses for everything she does. Mom says she doesn't know what we want her to do. Says she is confused. OMG, really! Does she really not understand that it isn't OK to tell your teacher" who in heck do you think you are telling me what to do, I'm going to kick you butt." "Quit telling me what to do or I will kill you." Then she punches her hand with her fist. Very little was decided in the meeting but the director of special ed asked to borrow my notebooks where I keep notes on her. Curious to hear what she says after reading then.
    I came home and ate Cheeto's. GRRR! not a good choice. I will go to spinning class tomorrow and hopefully work it off. Hopefully I will have time to do the weight machines.

    Hey everyone. I am not sure if I lost anything as I haven't weighed myself lately. Tomorrow will tell! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    Nothing wrong with Cheerios if you don't eat the whole box full. Sometimes only crunchy will do after a frustrating situation and Cheerios have to better than potato chips. They actually sound good and now they are gluten free. I didn't sign up this month. My weight is exactly the same as last month, which means I didn't gain back the five I lost in December. I'll settle for that.

    It has been a long day already. I was in the gym at 7:30. I did some of the weight machines before spinning. Then spinning class, I ride 22 miles today, then finished lifting. I went to one grocery store and came home to put it away. Then off to the LQS to show off my Landscape quilt. Then I headed to Costco. It was so crowded. Now the grandkids are here. Not sure how long they will be here. My daughters' Father in Law went to the hospital 2 weeks ago with pneumonia. They didn't like something they saw on the X-ray so they looked further. They found he had cancer of the appendix. It has spread into his abdomen and very small spots in his lungs They were going to put a port in for chemo today but he collapsed on Thursday and they thought the pneumonia was back. The tumors in his lungs have grown a lot so now they are talking about bringing in hospice. He has had several transfusions and they aren't sure what is going on there. I don't have a lot of confidence in the hospital he is in but not sure it is going to make any difference. He did see a specialist somewhere else last week.
    If I disappear for a few days it is because of this. SO I could be late responding to the winner and PM"s
