OK I want to join, but not being the sharpest tack on the bulletin board...how do I chitchat? Just by following the August weight loss?

Welcome Two Cats,
You can subscribe to this thread; just go to 'thread tools'. That helps me find it easiest. Also, to be eligible to win the fat quarters, you need to send a private message to 'meanmom' for her address to send your entry. Then come back here and chat with us a bunch! I also think we are supposed to post at least once weekly to win.

Hoping that everyone is safe and being careful in the heat!

I need to drop a few before my son's wedding... I'm in for August

I was doing so well! I have had a house guest all week. I have been cutting back on carbs and until this week did well. I think I have had more bread this week than I have had in a whole month. UG! We had a girls day yesterday and I when out all day with my 3 SIL. Had a fish sandwich for lunch, it would have been not too bad if it wasn't dripping citrus mayonaise. The we had sub sandwiches for dinner. We just went out to breakfast and I had a sandwich on ciabatta bread, again dripping some sort of fancy mayonnaise, So yummy. On the way home we stopped at the Chocolate Factory. They have all kinds of handmade chocolates. The had a new kind of toffee and he offered us a sample. He accidently cut them too large and asked if that was OK, well hell yeah it is!. We are having bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches and corn for dinner. So bad. My guest leaves tonight. I guess I need to ride my bike 100 or more miles tomorrow to make up for the last few days. I only exercised 2x this past week too.
Time to start over once again.

Cut my toffee too big, too.:D
I'm in. I need to drop 10 pounds and I might as well win some batiks doing it. Sounds confident. Yeah, right. My massage therapist wants me ride my bike or trike more. Between his 'encouragement' and this competition, I just might do it. It's time to declutter my body and my house.

I am losing weight and getting healthier.

When is your son getting married, jmoore? Mine is getting married 10/10 in China. We bought our airline tickets a few days ago and our daughter is driving to Chicago monday to get our visas. I just found out this morning my dress should be a bright color and/or shiny. Yeah, just what I want.....not! Our son also told us it is Chinese tradition for the groom's parents to buy the couple a house. That's not happening! I plan/hope to lose 15 lbs before the wedding. More would be better but probably not realistic.
I'll take one of the too large samples of toffee!
I did pretty well last month with my eating and also getting in some walking. Even lost a few pounds. Last night we went to a ballgame and ate ballpark food for our dinner. I even topped it off with a sundae. Was happy to see that I hadn't gained any back when I weighed myself this morning.
Some of you might remember a couple of months ago I thought I was a day or 2 away from getting under 200 lbs. Well, after gaining 7, I have finally lost those and gotten under 200. Woohoo! Now to figure out how to never get above it again.

Sounds like you are doing well Pam. Irish I NEED the batiks. (I also need to lose weight) I received your 3 FQ today Pam. I need them too.
Don't forget to PM me your loss for July. I have heard from a couple of people and the race is close.
My house guest just left, hopefully I can get back on track. We just ate BLT sandwiches for dinner. Bike ride in the morning. I am going to try for 25 miles.

Irishrose2 08-01-2015 04:37 PM

I just sweat off a pound walking the dogs. Too bad it'll be back as soon as I drink something. When I get hydrated, I'll take the tricycle out. I had some neurothapy dizziness earlier so I'll use the tricycle thought the regular bike is easier to ride.
Declutter for today? My son had to cut a hole in the laundry room wall to repair thr hot water heater. He fixed the wall, I painted it, but no one sorted through the dog paraphelia that hangs on an expandable rack there.

What do you yoga people wear to class in the summer? Spandex is too hot. Last week I wore cotton knit pants and top. Halfway through, I had the top tucked under my bra to get some my middle some air.

I am heading out for a bike ride as soon as I finish breakfast. It is cool this morning but is going to get hot later. Hopefully I can figure out how to hook my new bike rack onto my car so I can load my bike and ride a different section of the bike path. I live about 1 mile from a bike path that some day will go all the way from the bottom of Ohio to the top. Most of it is complete but there are still sections missing. the section I usually ride goes 7 miles out so I have to do part of it 2x or I finish up my ride on the street. There is a new section but for some unknown reaseon it is almost always closed. I have ridden it a couple of times and it is complete, no one knows why they keep closing it.
I am frustrated with myself because 2 weeks ago I was down 7.5 pounds for the month. Not anymore. All of the bread the last week and a half has killed that. I had bagels, pretzels, pizza, pasta, several sandwiches. Grrr! I was doing so well! New month new start! I am going out to lunch Wednesday and I will behave myself!

Pat, have you announced the fabric theme for Sept & Oct? I'd like to mail my next three entries at the same time, if possible.
