Mary- I am glad to hear the surgery went well for you and the people were so good (nurses rock!). I think when I have my surgery I will have several areas done at once so I don't chicken out on going back.

Leo- During college I had a job at night assisting the baker at a small patisserie/bistro. We made french bread, croissants, danish scones, brioche and a variety of specialty breads, cheesecakes and cookies. Talk about aroma and eating things fresh out of the oven! I never got tired of bread, even making it night after night. Luckily I do not crave it now because I don't bake anymore and we don't buy it. I like really good bread so most is just not that tempting to me. But if in the future I get the chance to go to France I will be eating bread there.

Michele- I hope the new battery trick works!

Hi Frankie- I gave up baking long ago, but I, too, love good bread. Whenever I go to a restaurant (not often), I always plan to have something from the bread basket--if it's worth it. Fortunately, 99% of the time, the bread/rolls are dreadful, and I have no problem passing them up.

Yes, in Paris I had the best croissant of my life--that I still remember almost 40 years later, and if I go to France again, I'm certain that I'll eat bread.

Hi Frankie, i tried to get them to do more than what they did but there is a limit for how many hours they will keep you under general anesthia. This was was 7 hours. So before I asked coukd we do a second one 3 weeks kater? They said we need to wait to see how everything healed. So the earliest I could do this again would be Sept but I think I need more time if we do it. It is different when you're 65 vs a young'un.

I am doing great this morning . . . good thing I am a morning person.
I got a little antsy yesterday, but stayed on plan.

It's spring at last where I live so I have lots out side things to do rather than facing the spring cleaning that is needed on the inside.

Congratulations, Michele! I know it feels great to see that significant number, but you should also view it as proof that you can DO this!

Mary--Keep on healing! I hope your discomfort is minimal.

Ariella- Congratulations on the loss! I look at it as a special accomplishment now that I know you work at Dunkin Donut. Great job in dealing with those temptations.

Hello everyone, congrats to ariella and michele. Twoterville (299) was back in 2004 for me and hope to never go there again. I had a scare when I got dostracted in 2011 and went back into twoterville from where I am now. It was an eye opener that I always need to be vigilant. I can't be casual in my food choices. I have to plan each day and eat only what I committ.
Today, my DD cooked my lunch. It was delish, 4 oz scallops, 8 oz spinach, 8 oz carrrot ginger gazpacho, 1 tbsp dressing, 1 tbsp tahini sauce on the scallops. Oh my! I was in heaven. I told my daught I could have eaten pounds of it, but I get another meal in 4-5 hrs and can make it just as delish. I have a plan, not a diet, today.
We are off to a play at my DD's community college, Kiss Me Kate. I love watching young people do plays. Have a good weekend.

Yesterday was a good day . . . . seem fully recovered from my midweek slump last week. Maybe my long sleeps were need to help me gain a more even keep.
A day without cravings, some needed exercise, lots of sunshine was just the ticket.

Hope you all have a great day! Back to work this morning, but I can't imagine a week more stressful than last. Knock wood.

Michele- Congrats on the new low!!!! You'll be happy to never see a "3" at the beginning of your weight ever again.

Arriella- WTG on staying on plan!

Mary- Your lunch of scallops sounded so good. I love seafood. Good job on the walking too!

Bella- I hope this week is much better for you. Getting the right amount of sleep is crucial for me to feel good.

Wait to go Michele!

This morning we heard that my husband's sister lost her battle with addiction. She had not only the food problem but the alcohol problem. By the time, she arrived at the hospital a couple weeks ago, the doctor said her liver was shot to hell. It is called cirhossis of the liver, the poor liver just has to work too hard cleaning the blood and stops functioning. She was not a candidate for a liver transplant because she was active in her addiction to the end. Please keep her in your prayers. 60 years old...too young.

I went to see the surgeon today and he took out some of e sutures. I will have to go back in a week for him to take out the ones in the back. I can't wash my hair until then. So I think I will have it done at the hospital after we finish up with him. It is looking good. Still lots of bruising and swelling but I have a neck. Near the ear, he had to cut the skin a bit to remove a suture so that us freshly sore. But he put some sort of medicated fly bandaids on it, under my chin and on the sides near and in my ears.

What a terrible loss, Mary.
Such is the power of addiction.

Super duper Michele!

Winifred, good job making the appt. I can't do this without God's help either. I have proven it to myself time and time again. Let us know how it goes and if you ever want to talk, give me a jingle on the tellie.

Outsiders may not believe this but I am powerless over the compulsive overeating. But with God's power supporting me to take the next right action, miracles happen!

I am exactly half way to my Memorial Day goal. 172.4 today and I'd like to be 160 on Memorial Day which will be tough to do in 3.5 weeks but I am going to do my best. This is incentive to stay on track and really focus.

Michele- Wow, awesome loss! You've been doing fantastic the last month.

Mary- I am sorry for your loss. It is so sad to lose someone from the side effects of addiction.

Winifred- I hope your appointment is helpful to you. I believe that any support you can get will help you. You can do this!

I'm Back .... I did fall off the wagon. Back on for 5 days. Gained 4 pounds.

Going to read about what has been happening around here.

Please know that I do miss and think about everyone when I'm falling off the wagon.
