    I will use the time to finish some cleaning I have been trying to get done, but I let the depression get i the way. I am also gonna be working on the t-shirt quilts.

    I have finally gotten things done that I have but off since I moved into my apartment. Still have tons to be done but one step at a time. I want to get rid of all the boxes and containers I have my sewing room stuff stored in. I am thinking I will use some of the vacuum bags for the storage of all the excess fabric that is in binds I really dont have room for.


    Keep up all your hard work.

    Cindy, congratulations. With a goal in mind, I'm more organized and use my time wiser.

    My house is CLEAN!!! I can walk through the dining room and see the table top. Such a good feeling. We are terrible here about laying things on any flat surface, and then that becomes a pile. So with the appraiser coming last week and the pot luck on Sat, the house got cleaned (even some corners and the fan blades).

    There isn't a dementia unit where my Dad is. The manager called DH and said he had had another talk with him, and hope it made sense. Got a call yesterday, Mom fell twice during the night getting out of bed. Thank goodness she has a roommate that heard her and got help. She was having a sleepy day yesterday, maybe it was the pain meds also helping her. Will go out to see her again today or tomorrow. Last Tues. I was "staff" and Thurs, I was her dead sister. DD comes this weekend and wants to go see Mom. I already hurt for her, as last time she was another granddaughter and DD was so hurt.

    Stress eating has been horrible. It's mindless and yes like others I have eaten anything that even looked good. So today I'm "clean" so far.

    I will be good to myself today - please be good to YOU.

    Congratulations on your job Cindy!!! I hope that you will really enjoy it and make some friends among your new co-workers!!!
    I am running out to the base to do my monthly grocery shopping trip. My daughter and grand-daughter are coming with me. Usually Naomi stays with her other grandma when we run to the base but her other grand-ma is busy today. We will leave as soon and baby girl wakes up from her nap. Should be interesting! Beth, my daughter, has not really had to shop with her baby yet. I had to take my kids everywhere!! 4 of them!!! It will be good for both of them!
    No flour, sugar or white rice is on my shopping list. I mostly need veggies and fruits and cereal for the husband. In between trips to the base I have to buy my fresh veggies and fruits. This is when I get all my paper products and personal products and all kinds of stuff. Usually end up spending around $300 to $400.


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

    Cindy congratulations on the new job. I hope you like it. It will feel good to get back to work. Enjoy your remaining free time. My work has been a little better recently. Not sure what is up. One day last week I made a couple of little comments to the other aide in the room. I don't know if she talked to the teacher or not. She does seem to agree with me on some points I have. We never really get time to talk to each other as we are always with the kids. We are going to the pumpkin patch with the class on Friday. Hopefully the kids will behave. Both of us aides told the teacher we refuse to be responsible for the kid who never leaves the room unless on a harness.
    At work tomorrow everyone is bringing food to share for lunch. I forgot about it until a few minutes ago. I didn't grocery shop this week so not sure what I will make yet. I am not running to the store so will have to figure out what to make out of things in the house.
    I like the taboo this week. That is what I have been struggling with. Sugar and carbs. Hopefully I will do good. Healthy eating to all.
    Irish still praying you don't have the meningitis.

    Me, too, meanmom, but I can't let it run my life. My new GGS arrived today. I refused to hold him, but my daughter, his GM, insisted so I was careful not to touch or kiss him - that was hard. Overly cautious - yes, but he was two hours old delivered by C section. She went into labor naturally, thank goodness, but later the baby's heartbeat disappeared with each contraction so they quickly did a section. Ouch! Beautiful little guy with a mop of black curly hair. Little is right - 6 pounds and 6 ounces and 19 " long. I had one lighter than that, but none that short.

    I need to grocery shop. It's just not my idea of fun. I was in a Mexican market today. I bought some interesting things. I especially like Mexican vanilla.

    I like this week's taboo, though I am surprised to see beets on the list. I knew carrots belonged there.

    cindy, congrats on the job. hope you like it, and all your co workers.
    vanogay. hope your feeling better. beets???? for a while, yrs ago, WW considered them a starchy veg, then changed their plann so they were 'free'. or less sugary. i eat them as a free veg. and seem to do okay with them. but usually l.5 cups at a time. anyone know where WW lists them now? on the pt system?
    irish, think i heard your menegt wasn't contag. so hold away......
    it's finally raining in michigan. no rain to speak of all summer, and now fall is here, we are getting a nice amount each week. happy wt loss week to you all.
    a long lost wayward grown step grdson showed up last nite. after he left i had 2 pieces of toast and jelly. but i guess that will be my treat for the week.
    and he went home with a quilt. hope he feels loved.

    sewNso, Pam H on page 9. I know fungal meningitis has been deemed non contagious, but why take a chance with an infant. I did hold him for a long time. Just didn't handle his skin or kiss him. He has my long fingers - very quiet little quy- so precious. Things keep changing on the tainted injections. Now they've extended the incubation time, but I feel I am out of the woods.

    How nice that were able to gift the GS with a quilt. He will know someone cares and that's what they need, wayward or not.

    Wonderful sunny day. I'm going to take the dogs to the lake right now. Catch you later.

    I decided to make soup of some sort out of what is here in the house. I figured I could concoct something out of what is here. While I was running ingredients thru my mind to make it my DH walked in the door with a huge bag of fresh spinach from the garden. So I made a big spinach salad to take to work. I still need to grocery shop desperately. I spoke too soon about school being a little better. NOT a good day. Oh well not sure there is anything I can do about it but keep looking for something else.
    We are eating the last of the goodies from the garden. The weather here is really warm today about 70. Kinda warm for this time of year here. We are having roasted green beans, zucchini , corn and chicken for dinner. Yum.I didn't know red beets were a sugary vegetable. I don't really like them anyway. I did have some raw in a salad and was surprised I liked them.
    Lots of weight loss and healthy eating to all.

    OMG I think I will go blind. I am hand sewing a black quilt label on a black quilt back with black thread. Every light on in the room and still having trouble seeing it.

    Hi all... Been absent for much to long. Congrats on the job Cindy. Irish there is nothing like a new born, so glad you got to hold him.
    I had so much reading to do because I have been off this site for so long. I still have to get my FQ in the mail, sorry, I will try to correct that in the next day or two.
    I have been yo yoing for most of the month. Really makes me mad at myself. Just saw the doc and he was not happy with the few # lost since I saw him last. I have the Sugar Bustrs book, really eye opening.
    I will sure try to keep away from sugar and sugar converting foods , a challenge but just what I need.
    Our friends took DH and I out for dinner tonite ,had a tri tip sandwich with salad and iced tea. I did leave half the bread and sooo enjoyed it.
    I have to tell a cute story about our Jasper. We took him to Home Depot today. We were walking through the Christmas dec area when Jasper saw a little rocking horse that was his size and color. He kept turning and looking at it as we passed so we took him back to get a close look and he got down like a puppy when he wants to play and softly woofed . I wish I had a video on my phone to watch over and over. He is such a ham. Sorry to ramble but had to share.
    Hugs to all and keep on keeping on.
    Gail

    Everyone is quiet today.
    Gail, that must have been adorable. My little one stops cold at every new Halloween decoration - like, hey, that wasn't there yesterday. She'll do the same thing at Christmas if she's still with me. It's so hard to rehome a good dog - and I wouldn't rehome a 'bad' one. I should take the furgirls to Tractor Supply and Home Depot occasionally, but I think I'll do it one at a time. I'll take them both to Tractor Supply Saturday if I have time. There's a dog event and the people from Lily's first shelter will be there. They enjoy seeing her so tall and strong - not cowering.

    I am sewing batting together by hand. It gives new meaning to the word boring. Just one seam so it's not too bad. Because I buy queen size packaged batting and make very large lap quilts, I have some large scraps. I also need to stop buying buying batting when I have a coupon I can't use on anything else. No wonder I can't get in the playroom. That and sewing machines - I am planning selling at least two.

    I don't think I have SugarBusters. I'll check at the library - there are too many books here, too.

    I'm going to try to call my doctor's office again. As my PCP, he needs to know about my fun and games. It's all but impossible to get past his office staff. I wonder when they received their medical degrees and how they manage to know more than the Nat'l Center for Disease Control.

    Gail, it's a nice feeling to mail more than one month's FQ at once, then I don't have to obsess over what to send as often.

    I want to start eating more regular meals. I feel that would be helpful with controlling my weight. Then I will work on portion control. I went to breakfast with a group this morning. I think I was the only one of twelve who cleaned her plate. I know I have no idea what 'full' means.

    Okay, back to the hand sewing - something I avoid at all costs. The only hand sewing on my quilts is the label.

    Good night, y'all. Have a clean eating day.

    Good Morning! had been out of the dried beans, so went to the grocery store and bought a bag. Been eating them 2 - 3 times a day with other food. It has really helped my body. Don't feel as bloated as I did a week ago. I will have to remember to keep a couple bags on hand at all times.

    Irish, a new baby. How wonderful. Miss that stage and won't have grandbabies for awhile, I'm sure.

    Since DH is out of town this week, I was putting together left overs from the refrig, but no veggies to be seen. So went to the deep freeze and grabbed a bag of frozen. Had it in the pan to heat when I looked at it and it was carrots and peas. My mind when into freeze mode - then put them back in bag and got out a bag of green beans. So next week when DH is back in town I will make the carrots/peas and he will love them.

    I'm not playing technically, but can I hang out with you guys? I can help be motivation and support and you guys can help me? So since i"m not technically playing I can tell I'm down 20lbs since end of August.. I know you all can do this!! I still have more to go. It's hard when living in a bad neighborhood, and being a jobless broke college student with lots of homework and an addiction to the computer and tv Excuses excuses.. I know.. I have Jvan from this board being my accountability partner but I think i need a horde of them.

    I used to weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 255 many moons ago.. Back then I took up training to run a marathon and I dropped down to 189. Then I got divorced and a whole bunch of life things happened and I got back up to 230. Then I got down to 200.. then a sit down job of long hours and the only thing nearby was a candy vending machine.. so back up to 215, which is what I started at in August. Now i am back down to 193 since then. My goal is 140. I know HOW to do it, I've done it.. I just need the motivation, inspiration, and accountability that comes from doing it with other people.

    I also need to stop giving my aunt recipes for sweet things I see online.. because then she makes a whole batch and sends them home to me. And I haven't figured out where/who to unload them onto. If i was working I would just bring them there but I'm not so they taunt me.

    This time around, I'm using small plates. This is really helping because now I'm getting full a LOT quicker and trying to eat more protein and fiber so I stay full longer. it's doing well.

    I am working on a million things of course as well. Quilts, swaps, crafts...I think my head has started spinning. If anyone sees it go flying off, please catch it and bring it back. Kthanx.

    I visited my mom in Iowa this week. She is 84 and doing well. I took my little traveling machine and worked on my Irish swap blocks. They are done except for trimming them up. Forgot to take my big square ruler.
    Anastasia, of course you can join in with our group. We are here to help and support each other.
    Cindy, congrats on the new job. I hope you love it.
    Irish, congrats on the new great grandson. Babies = fun!
    The past couple of months have been so busy. Too much traveling. I still have 1 trip to take. I decided I am going to go to the Houston quilt show. This weekend I am going to Minneapolis with the gals I have been playing cards with for almost 30 years. There are 8 of us going and it should be a blast. What I really need to get busy on is unpacking all these boxes. Next week looks promising.

    Anastasia, we can use all the support we can get. We have about the same goal - so GO GIRL GO.

    Spartan Stores and Meijers both have their own brands, plus the National brands. I get them at the natural food store in bulk, too. Great Northerns are easy to find, it's Navy beans, the smaller ones, that I like best and have more trouble finding though lately I can find both.

    Welcome, Anastasia, you can play all you want without being in the FQ challenge. That's optional. We welcome your input. Smaller plates - Cindy has us trying that for this month. High fiber - a good reminder. Thank you. High protein works for me for a short time, but not for everyone. It sounds like you are doing wonderful. 20 pounds in two months is as much as you'd want to lose.

    My 10 year old GS is here sewing his Halloween costume. My Elna has made many over the years, but none of gray cheesecloth. I have to listen to the radio to know when the football game ends so I can pick up his brother. The bazaar quilt is strung out all over. I can't find a batting I like for it. The brother is dieting - nothing but meat. It is so hard to convince 13 year old with ADHD that he doesn't know best.

    The kitchen needs me. I was just checking in.

    I am losing weight and becoming healthier.

    Thanks for the welcomes. It was an eye opener to see exactly how much more food you can get to eat with veggies and fruits. I know some people aren't real fond of them, but they help with the fiber and sweet desires.

    Have any of you guys used the Hungry Girl cookbooks? Basically she tries to keep all meals close to 300 calories. One of the times before that i lost 20lbs I did kinda basically that.. keeping my meals around 3-400 calories, stacks at about 100.. and I went to the gym every night after work. i don't recommend working out that many nights in a row. You fatigue. Drastically. The working out part is the part i'm having problems with right now. I used to have a gym membership, I don't anymore, and my brother used to go with me every night but now he won't work out with me. Slacker. And I don't have anyone else to workout with.

    Pam the trip sounds wonderful. I could use one. My whole family goes out of town for Thanksgiving every year. We usually stay in a state park somewhere. This year we are going to Hocking Hills in eastern Ohio. I found us a couple of big houses to rent. We aren't sure how many more years we will be able to go as my parents are 88 and 85. There will be 35 of us this year. It is a lot of fun. I am always in charge of the menu and assign everyone what to bring. Fortunately they are all pretty much healthy eaters. We do a lot of hiking etc.
    Anastasia I have several of the Hungry Girl cookbooks. I love them. They have a lot of innovative ways to make favorite dishes cutting the fat and calories. Some of her recipes need a little more seasoning for my tastes. She also has a website you can subscribe to. She sends daily emails with recipes and new foods. She has a recipe for alfredo sauce that is really good. I add some garlic to it. I cooked it last week and my family loved it. My daughter commented that she thought I was on a diet and alfredo is bad for you. Ha ha my little secret. I did put mine on tofu shiratke noodles.
    I need to get off of here. My DD and I are going to go on a segway tour today along the river. Or if the weather doesn't shape up we will go tomorrow. I have never been on a segway and have always wanted to try one.

    Ana, welcome to our little group. You can play along as you choose. Now, on the first of next month, when we have the sign ups, you can send your FQ in - and you're playing for the gold - kinda like the olympics except we play for fabric - And slimmer bodies! If you've been lurking - or if you've read all former posts, you see we have all sorts of good recipes coming in, lots of tips, a Taboo Tuesday and sometimes a cry fest - its all part of our family. Some of us have lots to lose and some of us, not so much - we're all in it to lose. And having the dangling carrot (which is on our taboo this week) of those FQs is great to look forward to. Welcome aboard.

    What a lovely description of our group, Vanogay. I will chat later as I am on my way to a quilt show. I'll have to look up the Hungry Girl alfredo sauce. I have an imitation I cobbled together that is very good.

    Sorry for the negative....just needed to vent.
    I feel ya, I've been out of work since May when I quit my job. Couldn't handle it anymore, was so neurotic and depressed and stressed. I keep getting rejected too so I just try to focus on doing really well in school and have projects to work on. So much more relaxed now. probably too relaxed cause I'm becoming one with the couch.

    Ok this is a long one. I just finished reading the entire thread.

I am 43 and still have days hang in there and definately if you can make yourself get out of the house even just for a short walk it does help.

    My thing today is no pop/soda I quit it once for over a year and start up again. Also to eat more veggies and fruit.
    Have a great day everyone
    Soda is one of my downfalls. I have not been able to give it up completely for more than a month but I can get it down to 1 per day and only diet. If carbonated water was sold by the 3 12pack for $11 deals I would drink that with crystal light stuff instead but nooo.. I need my bubbles that are bad for me and I need the caffeine. I like coffee and tea but I like them with so much other things that they end up being extra calories.
    I quit my job too cause I was just a basketcase. It was the worst job in the world for me to be stuck in. I worked in a call center. And while I appreciate their high standards of excellence, I was falling just shy of meeting them and it was making me neurotic. Plus I have a social anxiety problem and being on phones all day every day tethered there because of the major strictness, it just drove me nuts. Literally. I did go on a few different meds to try to make it. We had to stay in one department for 1 year before we could transfer out and I was just trying to make it. When I got to my one year mark, they wrote me up for not meeting their goalsÖ and I just lost it. Completely lost it. Had a mental breakdown, went on a several month medical leave, racked up a huge bill with the therapist.. went back for a week.. lost it again.. went back on medical leave.. then they were like.. you HAVE to come back and the situation WILL be the same.. so I was like.. I canít. I quit. I had been looking and looking for other jobs but nothing. SO I went back to school to do something I enjoy, and Iíve been going for a year now and loving it and canít wait to finish and start working in the field.

    Okay, back to the hand sewing - something I avoid at all costs. The only hand sewing on my quilts is the label.

    Good night, y'all. Have a clean eating day.
    Try eating with your eyes closed and putting your fork down completely after each bite and chewing as slowly and as long as you can.
    It takes about 4 weeks to shrink an appetite by eating less. Iíve finally shrunk mine. Now it hurts like heck if I eat too much, and it keeps hurting.. ALLLLL NIGHT.
    Also, anyone ever looked at the Eat Right 4 Your Type diets? Theyíre based on blood type. I did it for awhile, and I felt AMAZING. But itís a very restrictive diet that I just couldnít keep up. Do you know how hard it is to find anything that doesnít have corn OR wheat?! Iím blood type B so itís like one of the least restrictive diets but holy cripes. Anyways. What sold me on that diet was when they were going through and saying if youíre this type and you eat these foods you probably experience these symptoms.. Sure enough, had every one. I also learned some additional vitamins and mineral supplements to take and those really helped make me feel wonderful. I did that diet for 2 months (I canít seem to stick to anything consistently for more than 1-2 months, grr) and it was the most wonderful 2 months. Itís really hard to eat right when youíre broke. Hehe. I need to find a person thatís one of those extreme couponers. Get them to hook me up.
