My goodness my cell phone has sounded messages 8 times since I have been down here this morning. Guess I should check them out.

The news is talking about "snownadoes" from our heavy wind gusts. Lots of delayed and cancelled flights at KCI. A FedEx plane off the runway. Visibility was so bad that people looking out the windows at the airport couldn't see the planes parked right there at the gate. So..... even though we only got two inches we had blizzard conditions for a few hours.
The winds here are insane today. My van was hard to control on the highway. I had to grip the steering wheel super hard.

Schools are dismissing here at noon. I am trying to decide whether to head home or wait it out.

Chewie, 16 lbs seems like a great loss for two weeks, or has it been longer?

I had 2 cube steaks I fried up for us, and used up the last of the mashed taters and gravy. Now I have to start thawing stuff for the next couple of days. I am SO in the mood for stuff with ground beef but I don't have any. I guess it will be chicken instead.
I know what you mean.. we have a freeze warning down here.. can you believe that.. it went down to 31 last night...and so I just put on the heater and I am walking around naked.. LOL!! what a weirdo...I love ground beef I can stand over the stove while it's cooking and eat it..

The problem with going up there, with the sister in law getting us the room and maybe even the show.. and then pays for dinner, is that we are stuck on her itinerary...you get that well she got us the room, so big deal she has our whole getaway planned... so on Friday...she wants her husband to come and take us to the new mob museum... which is downtown near the court building or something.. she doesn't ask.. it's planned.. now I know hubs loves mob stuff...but it's just the that she does it.. and her husband is so weird..I told hubs he isn't leaving my side...he is always staring at me I hate it.. like he is trying to figure out what I am about.. and I want to just smack him.. he should only know what his wife and I used to do.. then he would stare at me more.. grrrrr my Sister in law and I used to party big time.....but she wants to keep it hush hush from him...she sent me a youtube video of her at a club dancing in the 90's.. she said shshsh don't tell him when you see him LOL!! I said OMG that is mild.. what about the other stuff...

Yay! That is like a lb a day pretty much on avg then. So, what did the nutritionist tell you? Any helpful hints? I know you said something about New England Chowder for tonight. Is it okay to jump into foods like that or do you need to do simpler purees?

I lost 16 pounds which is good--per my surgeon. I thought it would be more but I have unrealistic expectations. Now I have to really ramp up exercise so I can get stronger and get more energy.
WHOOHOO!! 16 pounds! that is lik e 2 SIZES isn't it??:jumpjo y:
