I am also looking forward to the nice weather. I know you will love being off for the summer Diane, as always!! Just being able to get out and walk in the morning instead of after work in the traffice is a blessing of retirement. It is SO SO much different, at least around here. Mike watches the baby while he naps and I go run or walk. I ended up eating afterall last night so going to run today. I just walk if I have been fasting. I weighed the same today.

Good morning,

Pretty brave getting in the pool Diane. I haven't got into the pool yet, just the jacuzzi and it was heated. It's been hot here so the pool water is warming up some. The kids have been swimming in the pool for weeks now. Glad that your school season is about over. Any plans for the summer? Going to the condo?

Good job on the walking Kris. DH is bugging me about bike riding every weekend. I just don't want to . I feel too shaky on it. He says I will get used to it. Still thinking on it...*sigh*

Good Morning! I had to pop in early and brag cause I lost another 2 pounds!!! So excited. For so long I couldn't lose at all. It is really hard to stick with it, especially difficult cooking stuff for Mike twice a day and me skipping eating totally every other day. On the off day, I eat with him, mostly low carb for this week. I know it wont last with a big holiday weekend coming up.

I hope you both have a great Memorial Day weekend!!!!!!

Thanks! I have been eating more these two days. Probably will be up a couple of pounds after the holiday. But I was so excited to finally lose. I think I can get motivated and get back on track. Hope you both have a great holiday!!!!

I messed up over the weekend too, back up 5 pounds. I am convinced that low carb is still the way to go. I have tried many other things over the last 5 or 6 yrs with no luck. Fasting every other day works and then LC when I start eating every day again. I had 4 days of kinda bad eating and it really pushed me back up but I'll get there again....

Our pool is screwed. going to have to replace it right now. Going looking tonight..........

Hi diane! Good to hear from you. And hope you are doing well too Angie. I've been so busy picking up river rock by hand and move it by buckets to the patio so the new pool can come in. We have a new one bought, just waiting for the guy to put it in, maybe another week or two. Big work tearing out this old one thats for sure. There is rock around 4 foot out everywhere and it's a chore. But has to be picked up, moved and then put back. it was way over due being done anyhow, mud and weeds and crap had taken over. Going to build more deck on too, so more work. Maybe I'll lose some weight with all this rock hauling. I've been at a standstill all week. I was doing fine and happy with semi low carbing but then my bloodwork came back and my colesteral is 265. It's never been high before and was just tested last year. I lost about 10 pounds, so I thot for sure colesteral would be fine. I am wondering if it was the 30 pound gain over the last couple of years that caused it to be high. I really dont eat that bad, not a lot of read meat, or fats, almost never any ice cream. I do eat fried tortilla chips tho. But I hate oatmeal and beans so I dont know what I'll do. I have to make an appt at my doctor. Will know more then I guess.... Hope you both have a great weekend.

Yikes, those rocks are heavy. We have them around our pool and in a few other places and I remember spreading them. We need another truck load, but .... don't feel like moving them anytime soon.

Sorry to hear about the cholesterol. Do you think they will put you on meds?

I have not called my dr yet, but yes I think they will put me on meds. I've been holding off. I have just got to do it I guess. I have lost weight recently and I do exercise more than the average person I think, but looks like that is not enough. I plan to call and make an appt soon. Its just been so busy with the pool and all. VERY much to do around here.

Hope all is good with you both!!

PS Did I tell you I had some coolscuplting done? Wont know results for another month but I'll keep you posted.

If I had read this post 2 hours ago, I would never have heard of coolsculpting, but I heard an ad, well a host on a radio station talking about it. You will have to let us know how it turns out. Good luck!

what was the radio host saying? Good or bad results?? Just curious. I researched a lot on the internet and reviews were mostly good. everybody was happy with the results, some had pain tho that they dont tell you about..... Abdomen was a little sore for 3 or 4 days. No pain now. It almost seems like I can alrady tell there is a little improvement, but will wait for another month for final results. I will decide then if I want a second treatment anywhere or not.

It sounded like he just had it done a couple of days prior. He said he needed about 6? weeks to see results? It was one of those ads where the host was probably given the item/service then talks about it as a commercial. It was just kind of funny, I never heard of it, then twice in one day!!! I hope you get good results.

Waving to Angie!

*WAVES*
My boss and I have been working at refinancing 5 of the apartment buildings ( the rate for commercial properties is at a real low interest rate for "fixed" that he has seen for a long time) since February. It has been a lot of work, paperwork, rent rolls phone calls back and forth with the accountant, the workload has been unbelievable.
I finished my inspection for my building with the bank, inspector, and appraiser last night about 8:30. And they are at 2 of the other complexes today and 2 on Friday. I am exhausted..I went into work yesterday morning at 2 a.m. worked straight through until 8:30 p.m. without eating. Kris seriously I don't see how you can fast.

I havent had a chance to get caught up on all of the reading here yet. I hope all is well.
Missed you Guys.

You gals are so busy!! It's almost Friday again. Our new pool was supposed to be delivered today, but it was a no show. Now it is set for Monday I guess. Hard dealing with contractors....:mad

I'm still hanging in there watching cals & carbs & walking a LOT! Keeping off what I lost, but lost no more in the last 3 weeks. I know I've been eating too much. Walking the big BIX race route tonight tho! That should burn a few cals!!

Happy Friday.
Been busy. Inspections finished and now just waiting for the reports to come in. I did get a generous bonus from my boss for the efforts and the paperwork. That was a nice surprise.

Hope you get your new pool up soon Kris.

Have a great day.

Hi Diane! I am debating and really thinking hard about what to do - LC or not. My dr is giving me 6 mos to get the colestoral down (it's 265). I've never had a problem before. I dont want to take meds the rest of my life. I'll never even remember to take a pill EVERY day. But I do not want to start eating oatmeal either, cant stand it. What to do. I can't decide. Good luck with LC. It is the only thing that has ever worked for me to lose weight.

Major heat advisory here tomorrow. they even cancelled BIX at six. I am so disappointed. I was planning on getting a good workout

We are supposed to get the heatwave this weekend too. Oh goody!

I have been LC'ing a few days and can feel the bloat lifting. I have been so bad -- I have put on almost everything I lost back in 2004 or whenever it was. I swore I would not be one who took it off and put it back on and well, here it is. I am not looking to be skinny, just to get comfortable again. I'd be happy around 155.

Good luck to you too!

Hi Guys,

Have a happy and safe 4th. I chose to work today and take Friday off instead. Three day weekend here I come. YAY! Workload has been heavy, and the raise is really nice ( $2 more an hour). Life is good, however still not on plan. Soon though, real soon.

Hope you both had a great 4th of July!! I ran the Firecracker Race as I do every year. It's 3.2 miles and a nice flat course. Always a good time. The whole family ran it this year. Then went to some fireworks at a friend's farm.
I cant seem to get back on plan for very long I am still walking/running a lot and maybe slowly llosing, but not very much. Have to start skipping a few dinners again to get back to losing.

Hope you are both doing well!!
