Hi Hi Hi Happy New year. I hope to get on here more often. Time is at a premium now while working full time. I'm on the computer all day and when I get home, don't feel like getting on it again and have stuff to do. KWIM? We're staying home and having appetizers tonight. YUM

Happy New Year everyone! DH and I spent Thursday, the day after Christmas, Friday, and Monday babysitting our little Fox! Yay! He had a mild case of flu so they didn't get to come for Christmas. He was much better but they didn't want him to go to the sitter's. So thankful we had some time with him.

Deb- Sorry you're not getting to see little Molly as much as you want. You know that I totally understand!! We enjoyed Fox as much as possible; we never know when we'll get to see him again.

oncloud9now2 01-01-2014 04:08 PM

Thank you so much Deb for starting us off this new year! It's beautiful as always!!

I made poor but conscious food decisions today and the last few days. I start back tomorrow on my journey to good health. I have finally learned that I'm doing this for myself and it's not a race! Also, I'm not being a fanatic like last time so that I will not have the same results as last time. This must be a way of life that I can live with; I will never be 'finished'.

oncloud9now2 01-01-2014 04:19 PM

Me too Deb!! Poor DH was beside himself!!!

hi Mary been the same here in the house sitting on the computer and Ken has started the new year with an attack of course soo sick to his stomach head hurting so much he can't see and his right side is very stiff he can still move it so it sure isn't the worst he has had but i hate seeing him like this
Steven slept until 2 pm! lol but he stayed up most of the night online
how has your day been??

oncloud9now2 01-01-2014 07:38 PM

Those socks are the cutest things! I need to look for some for Fox!
I know what you mean about your son. Something happens when they're influenced by the DIL.

oncloud9now2 01-01-2014 07:44 PM

Sorry Ken had a bad day to start off the year. Hope tomorrow will be better!

MellyBean82 01-01-2014 11:26 PM

Hi everyone! :hiya: I'm Melanie.
New to LCF, not so new to low carb WOE. I just wanted to pop in and say hi and Happy New Year!
I've been overweight my entire life...literally since infancy. The last time I was under 300 pounds was junior high school.
My total weight loss goal is -249 pounds...I started Induction on 12/20/13 and am down 22 pounds as of this morning. WOOHOO! :jumpjoy:
I'll be staying on Induction for as long as I can stand it. :yummy: lol

MaryMary 01-02-2014 04:44 AM

Hi MellyBean, welcome. I was where you are back in 2001 and woukd be happy to help you in any way. I found that taking it one day at a time really helps, and letting go of the otion that you have to lose it all quickly. It is for your life and chaning old habits take time. I found it helps to clean up the environment. Remove any stashed food from around the house and cars. Keep and eat in the kitchen dining area only. These are things that helped a lot. One thing I did do was to keep a bottle of water in every room so when I felt hungry and if it wasn't meal time, I would take 10 sips of water and get busy with something.

Back to work today. Last night it started snowing and will continue until tomorrow morning, so I am working from home both days. Planning on a foot or more.

Have a good one everyone!

debkeversole 01-02-2014 08:29 AM

soo what is everyone into today?? i am going to gather up all the garbage so we can go to the dump tomorrow if the roads aren't too icy

SIGH have to take Steven back to school next week sure will miss him A LOT!

debkeversole 01-02-2014 10:02 AM

i spoke too soon about Ken having a better day he looks better can move better but man oh man is he CONFUSED and honestly talking like someone with Alzheimer's this is scaring me

MaryMary 01-02-2014 10:10 AM

Deb, has he had the battery of neuropsychology tests. It is a baseline to test ability to handle life and remember things. I highly recommend it. My DH had it done in November and it confirmed my observations. At least we have an action plan
