    Vanogay it is called eating because the food is calling you. I am very guilty of it. I ate some almonds last night because someone left them out on the counter. I wasn't even hungry. I grabbed a handfull on my way to bed. I have been trying to get my DH and DS to put food away when they are done with it so I can stay out of it. They and me aren't doing very well at it.
    I hope I do ok this month. I have been exercising a lot this month. SO far I have done 30 or more minutes on the elliptical every day but one. I do bootcamp on Tues night and walk on Fridays after work. We have a field trip for special Olympics next week which means we run around all day. The weather here has been pretty yucky and we have had indoor recess almost every day for 2 weeks. This means we run around in the gym for 30 minutes. The scale had better be good to me on Saturday at my weigh in.
    I have a quilt class tonight for an optical illusion quilt. I bought it for me with some money I got for Christmas.

    I am still the same, not dropping, but have stopped gaining.

    I'm having a hard time adjusting to not having a set schedule. Lost some, gained some back, still down for the month but not much. I wish it would stop raining so I would feel more like walking.

    I was a bad, bad girl at my retreat. There was just too darn much good food. But I did get quite a bit done on my Irish quilt. This is from a block swap. Eleven of us will have our quilts shown at the quilt fest in Ireland this summer. My block is the center one. One of the gals at the retreat is going to quilt it for me. I can't wait to see what she does with it.

    Well, I was only down 2 tenths today at my weigh in. However...I can now fit into a size 20 pants that have a zipper and a button. I was in a size 26 starting in Jan. 2013. It's a slow process, but it's better than continuing in the other direction. Next week is when I get measured again. Hopefully there will be some changes from the last time. Hang in there everyone. We can do this.

    Pam I love the quilt. Lots of gorgeous blocks. Cindy glad to hear the scale has stopped moving in the wrong direction. I weigh in Saturday. Hopefully it will be good news. I was only down a tiny bit last week but I ate a really salty meal on Friday night.
    I stopped at the mall on the way home tonight. Huge mistake. I bought a bunch of clothes. I was a size 24 or 26 last year. I bought 2 pairs of pants in the regular dept ( no more plus size for me). I bought a skort in a size 18 that is a little bit loose:-)

    How exciting to buy smaller clothes. It's been a while since I was able to buy "regular" clothes. Maybe by the summer I can. Congratulations!

    Soon, I won't be able to check in very often.
    Thanks, JuneBillie for this info. It sounds great

    For those of you that have been here for a while you might remember me telling about my great nephew with Batten Disease. Ethan passed away yesterday. He would have been 5 in May. It is so very sad I can hardly stand it. Ethan's great grandmother passed away today. That poor family!

    Pam so sorry to hear about your loss. Prayers going out for the family.
    I was doing so good this month and a little emergency came up and I made a trip to visit my DD and family. I drove up and arrived at 3:00AM Friday morning. Things are fine now. We had Chipotle for lunch and went to a mexican place for dinner. I was so bad. I missed my weigh in today since I am out of town. I will miss next weekend too since I will be at my retreat. I will weigh in some time this week. Hope I didn't do too much damage yesterday. They are talking about pizza for lunch.

    Pam, so sorry for your loss. Praying for comfort for you and the family at this very difficult time. Psalms 61:2...When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

    Pam....prayers for you and your family.

    It really has been quiet here lately. What are you working on? I have the the fabric pulled for the 5th mystery, clue printed and starting this afternoon. I am also doing a patrotic swap have 1 set done, 2 in process and 2 cut ready to go, and one more to figure out what block I will make.

    Also need to cut for a 2.5 inch block swap along with a twist for 2.5 inch batiks.

    Pam I also am so sorry to hear about the losses in your precious family. My husband use to work one on one with a boy in the school system with Batten's Disease. My prayers are with your family. Me and my husband got back home early this morning from both of us having a sleep apnea study done. This is a second for both of us.

    Help --- I have fallen off the wagon and can't get back on. Don't know why, when I was doing good.
    My DH took me shopping to 2 quilt stores on Sat for International Quilt day. Did not go overboard. We did stop to eat on way home and the serving of french fries was huge (I am not a FF lover) and I ate them ALL! What happened to will power?

    I feel so silly complaining about my lack of will power when I read about Pam's nephew. My heart goes out to you and your family.

    Go for my third, and final, spine injection today -- hope it lasts. Maybe then I can exercising and walking.
