    September's winner will not be me either. My son was home this week and that meant cooking and eating. He leaves on Sunday after a huge dinner of Beef Rib Roast. I am hoping that all my children will be here for dinner. It will be the first time they have all been together since May. Last weekend did not work out for two of my daughters. Hope this one does.
    My son will be leaving in January for a 10 month deployment. He has been told that he needs to be pack and ready to be gone for 10 months starting on their next time at sea next week.... just in case.


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

    Well I don't think I'll be September's winner either, oops negative thought lol. At my last weigh in I have lost 4 pounds this month, hopefully tomorrow will show another pound or two.

    meanmom my heart goes out to you to have such a toxic workplace. I have worked in jobs nearly as bad and kept telling myself that it all evens out in the end. I really do believe in karma (or whatever you want to call it) and that we will all be "rewarded" according to how we have lived our lives.

    Judy I love the pea soup story! The kitchen must have looked like the set of the Exorcist. And it's why I am such a goober about using a pressure cooker. I'm such a wuss about some things.

    Cindy have fun on your date, but not too much fun LOL.

    Oh a family dinner sounds wonderful Gayle, I sure do miss the days when my siblings would actually act like adults and could be in the same room. I am so very glad my son is still living at home and we can have dinner together, at least the nights he isn't working. Please tell your son how much I appreciate his service, I am so grateful to all the young men and women who serve.

    I did get at least a short walk in nearly every day this week, the weather was wonderful. I love fall in Ohio, well at least early fall before the rains begin. Doing a little better on the water, portion control is still iffy. I am getting healthier, yes I am!

    Enjoyed my date, spending time with him. We were going to a steak house only to find out that they are moving locations, and closed until October 4th. So we ended up having Tex Mex at On the Border. then went to the movies.......and yesterday was a day of non stop pouring rain. So since the temps were down, I wore a sweater coz most movie theaters are always cold. This one had the heat on and I ended up getting overheated ........ugh that sucked. He was willing to leave if i wanted to. We saw End of Watch, neither one of use were pleased with the movie, I dont recommend spending your money on it.

    Today I went to the Texas Rangers baseball game at noon against the LA Angels, rangers lost. But I had a great time. Temps were nice, had a nne wind blowing keeping it nice. Watching the second rangers game of the day since last nights game was postponed due to rain. right now the rangers are winning.

    Pam I do have another suggestion for Taboo Tuesday, it might make it easier. What if we change it to Try It Tuesday? That way instead of focusing on the negative, ie what we have to give up, we could focus on a positive change. It could be a mix of new things to try, and things to try to do without.

    Cindy I don't think I've ever been to a movie theater that wasn't freezing cold! Gosh I can't remember the last time I went to a movie. When I look at the movie page and then the prices, I just stay home.

    Well my date is eligible for the senior prices (i'm not) so he gets the 2 tickets for senior prices (3.50 instead of 7.00) Which is why I wouldn't let him leave. Due to the cost.

    I like the idea of try it tuesday......Do you want to take it over LaurieJo? I saw that Pam was looking for someone to take it over due to health issues happening with her. Think about it.

    Busy times for me. I flew to Texas last monday. We hired 2 men and a truck to pack our stuff and load into the rental truck. We were hoping to sign our closing papers on thurs or friday but that didn't happen. Hubby drove the truck and I drove our car. It was not fun. I did find a couple of things to help keep away the negative thoughts. Christian music, when I could find it on the radio, was/is very uplifting. The other things was the beautiful fall leaves. Oh my, I feel bad for the people in the south who don't get to experience this colorful change of the season. I am almost looking forward to my drive this afternoon. The final leg of my 1500 mile journey. We will sign the closing papers some time today. I was fearful that it might not happen when the buyer had emergency quadruple bypass surgery a week ago.
    I am not going to win for Sept. I was down 6 lbs at 1 point but traveling is not good for me and I am not near a scale to find out what the actual damage was. My sister started a new diet that I am considering. You cut out all sugars and grains. It makes your body burn fat instead of sugar. After a while you start adding things back in and see how they affect you. She has not had a migraine in the 3 weeks she has been on it. I am willing to try it if it could take away my migraines.
    Time to sign on to the October thread. Good luck, everyone!

    Well, my September loss was not what I expected - but it wasn't a gain either. I'm on to the October thread for another go at it. Pam asked me to fill in for her on Taboo Tuesdays, so I'm game for a month or so of that.
