Wow Tanya that was a bad time you had with the 'stitch'. Hope he isn't going to charge you for half the treatment!

I am glad you are seeing a new gynie hopefully someone who listens. I don't know much but it sounds to me as you def have PCOS. Time to get this sorted.

I came here to complain about how I just realized at a lb a week, ha! not even!, it will be over a year before I get to goal. Then I read about other members health problems, etc. and it just didn't seem "right". I feel selfish and foolish for being so concerned with the numbers when others are worried about much more important things.

Katie, I hope everything checks out alright, and Carly, I hope the doc gives you a thumbs up on trying conception.

Well look at it this way......a lb a week is really healthy way to lose!! A study I read once ages ago that said the slower people lose weight the better chance they have of keeping it off!! I aim for slow, but its ok when the whoosh fairy visits too!!! lol!!!! Aweee Library you will get there!!! Just imagine what you will look like in a year!!!

I know, I know! That's what everyone says. "It's better to lose it slow." However, I doubt the fast losers would want to trade places!

You're all so understanding, thank you. I was thoroughly fed-up and needed to sound off about it without sounding as if I was blaming my husband.

Having a better day. Good wishes to all of us with plumbing or other household snags.

Ooooooh, chicken chat!

JMBM, for my small flock, which is varied with 4 different brown-egg-laying breeds, the New Hampshire Reds have proven the longest lived. You'll find this is important to your heart. You can't help but become attached to your hens and it's great to have them stay well and strong.

My husband and I were just noticing yesterday an old New Hampshire hen who had looked awful after her fall molt, is fully feathered out and just beee-u-tiful, laying every other day faithfully as though she were a younger hen.

That said, I have really loved all the brown-egg-laying breeds I've reared, Plymouth Rocks, Orpingtons, Australorps, Rhode Islands (a parent breed of the New Hampshire), Buttercups, Wyandottes. And I would have good things to say about all of them. (Haven't tried white-egg layers in all these years, since I like plump hens.)

As far as predators, one helpful thing I read is to avoid (or really protect) white-colored hens because they are the ones most likely to be targeted. Yennie, we don't have eagles, (yikes!) but hawks are scary here.

Turkey eggs are something I've never tried! I'd guess they are about the size of a double-yolked chicken egg?

Hope the appliance and plumbing woes are straightened out soon! ((Hugs)) for that, Cindy and SlowSure!

Tanya, isn't it wonderful to be able to come here and find that you know intelligent women who probably have experienced what you have, health-wise. I sure appreciate all the wisdom.

Library Girl, in all honesty, I think you are doing so well. I know that can sound hollow on a day you're wondering why things go so slowly, but it's real!

Nope, bigger. They're an off white with brown speckles (at least the turkeys we had, maybe different turkeys lay different colored eggs?). I' say easily 2.5-3x the size of a large chicken egg. I can close our carton with a double yolker in there - can't with a turkey egg.

My dad has lost several chickens to birds of prey. Our chicken house & pen was already built when we bought our house & its covered so I'm assuming the previous owner had losses & covered the yard. I may try to let them out days when I'm home to watch them but not today - its pouring today.

Cindy and Slowsure -- I know exactly how you feel dealing with your home disasters. We just got done cleaning up a giant mess. The snow fall has been so bad this year that I came home from work one night and saw our gazebo had crashed down on top of the hot tub! What a mess!
Cleaning up a water mess is the worst and whenever it happens I always feel sorry for myself. That is until I think about people who don't even have running water! It's all about maintaining your perspective right? We have a great life!

You are so right, I have lived in India and other places where water is so scarce, we are indeed fortunate. I try to remember that because my life is truly blessed.

I have a lot reading/preparing to do. I love fresh eggs. We are building a barn this summer and I've already reserved a spot for a chicken coop. I just like the flavor of the farm raised eggs better also. They just taste richer. We are also going to start buying grass fed beef. It's amazing how different it taste compared to store bought meat. You can even smell the difference. Also incorporating coconut oil in my diet and I'm trying to cut out Aspartane (sp?). Hard though because I love my coke zero!

We raise a steer every couple of years for the freezer and it does make a difference. Also a couple of hogs if we can find some locally. Everything is better homegrown. DH has plowed our garden and is going over it every evening so it will be ready to plant this weekend. Fresh veggies coming soon.

Plus I just like chickens. I have 42 eggs in the incubator sitting on my dining table beside my laptop. Get to candle them in a few days and throw out the bad ones.

My latest, atypical for us, domestic drama is a prime example of the consumerist lifestyle.

For the first time, I used one of the programmes in my new microwave (it relies on sensor technology rather than user input of ingredients/weights etc.). Let's just say that the potato didn't bake, it actually caught fire and was reduced to a charcoal nub. I have to say however that, despite the intense heat, the microwave didn't collapse, it didn't even trip the RCB.

The smoke damage is less than it might have been but the smell throughout the house is wretched.

So, I had nearer 550kcals than 350kcals for yesterday's DD, but my dinner incinerated and I had to improvise.

I'm so sorry about the domestic dramas. I love hearing about the chickens. I'm such and urban/suburban gal, but I had no idea so many people has hens at home. I don't even have a terrace on my apartment. We are having work done on the floor in the extra bedroom today so all of the contents are in the living room

The cats think it's fun. They are all perched on boxes.

Oh Carly, having work done on your home is an adventure! I'm sure your cats think it is great fun having boxes to climb! Hope things are back to normal soon.

Awesome boxing workout at boot camp this morning. Wishing I could go home and back to bed! DD today, so I'm drinking lemon water right now.

SlowSure... it never rains but what it pours! Sorry about you incinerated potato.

I have just eaten a 200 cals worth of mashed potato and Frank's hot sauce. It is so cold out today and I did 2 classes back to back at the gym so comfort food was called for. I think this is going to be a potato day. Long time since I did one.

I get fresh eggs from a friend when I am in Devon, but up here it is just the best free range I can find. When I was very young my parents kept chickens, just post wartime. They had one 'Pullet' and I had the little eggs it used to lay. Thought I was very special.

I just looked up Pullet, and it seems to be a generic term for a young hen. So this was different, a small breed of some kind. It was much littler that the other hens I remember.

I am losing at a rate of about 3 lbs a month, sometimes less, so it seems ok to me. I have started walking and counting my UDs, which I wasn't doing in the beginning and I seem to be losing a little bit better now. My entire mood and outlook have improved dramatically over these four months, which is the most wonderful thing of all!

Still playing "catch-up" on everyone's post but just have time for a quickie..excuse the change in topics, but I'm really excited about this. (copying from my post on the golden agers)


Gotta make a post with a recommendation...for the Keurig coffee makers. Yesterday at the PX I bought the coffee cups for the Keurig...you know, the off-brand one like you see on TV, I'm not going to give the brand name, but they are absolutely wonderful!!!!!!

They fit into the regular slot in the coffee maker, not like the K-cup that you have to take the thingie out to insert your own coffee into the basket. If you have a Keurig, you know what I mean and sometimes the thingie is very difficult to take out for a woman who has arthur itis visiting the hands. They're a finer mesh than than the branded one and come four in a package so you can make up several cups for your favorite brand of coffee...needless to say, I love 'em and highly recommend them.

I'm fortunate in that some stores in my area stock the "as seen on TV" products so you don't have the added expense of shipping and having to deal with the "wait, for a few dollars more you can have...." Even if you're thinking of picking up one of these coffee makers/dispensers, you might consider picking these up, too.

I found these just after I stocked up on my favorite K-cups (slapping the back of the head NCIS style) Duh! So I'm well stocked on coffee for a long time. If you do use other brands of coffee, remember to grind it a little finer than it comes for the drip makers...

We now return to our regular programming...

I wish I had any idea of what that all meant Mary... no Keurig coffee maker in the UK. But now you've got me wishing there was.

Cindy, sorry you're deprived in the U.K. without a Keurig coffee maker. It's a single cup coffee maker that has hit the U.S. and is changing the way we think about making coffee. Of course, there are other brands here, too, and each has its own type of "basket" or device to hold the coffee grounds. I bought one a few months ago when I got tired of having leftover coffee after three or four days....a day or two is okay to my tastes as I turn the heat off after it's made and then just nuke it to heat the coffee. But the price of the coffee cups are much, much higher than buying a pound of coffee so the per cup price is more than fifty cents which is too much in my opinion.

I like the taste of a fresh cup so thought it was a good thing and worth the cost...but bought the Keurig brand of the diy cups but it's a bit messy and like I said, sometimes difficult to use...these are so much better.

My apologies again as I thought the Keurig was available everywhere...just goes to show ya' doesn't...maybe they'll be there soon.
