Cheryl: Was your Mom taking the cranberry pills? I know when I take them, if I do not drink a ton of water they will upset my stomach because they are so concentrated. I know how nice it will be when they have the door and window fixed. Hope it is all finished Monday. We are cool again today with rain, which we desperately need. Thank goodness the wind died down.. yesterday it was awful.

Cuda: my dh likes for me to eat garbage with him too. I love it too, so it is hard for me to say no and he knows that. Sorry your pain has flared up. I hope you enjoy your long weekend.

Deb: I hope you are feeling back to normal and have said goodbye to that nasty virus. I know you are always busy and there is plenty to be done.. but try not to over do it for a few days. Are you going away for the weekend?

Misty- it is cold and wet here... the beef stew sounds perfect for a day like this. I am glad to hear your snow melted at least. I am sorry Cheryl sent it to you. But, I think I sent it to her first.

Jo: have a nice visit with your friend, and enjoy the wine and turkey! Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.

Karen: It's good to see you. I keep missing you because I skip a day or two and then do not go back and catch up. I hope everything is going well...

Nikki: I hope you have a nice weight drop for today since yesterday was a down day.
Good to be back. Now to get back to time to work on weight loss.

Going to be another nice day today, starting to get warmer everyday again. In the 50's today. Watching my clients dog Ginger until Wed. so been going for nice walks again.

Karen glad your back, it's been a long few months of work for you.

Krista ss to hear you pain is back, hope it goes away again. It is hard to stay on plan when others are eating everything you want. I'm lucky my DH just eats what I put in front of him. I do make snacks for him but I'm lucky I don't like sweets.

Cheryl glad mom is finally getting the house straighted out. It's sure took a long time. How's the whole neighborhood is it finally looking normal? Has your DH started working on the LH house repairs yet.

V glad your back is better. Mine still kills, it must be a muscle I pulled some how. But it's almost 2 weeks. Are you going dress shopping this weekend?

Deb hope you and L/B are feeling better. Any plans for this weekend.

Pat, what you been doing. I bet enjoy the nice sunshine.

I have been pretty much off-plan (nothing too bad, but not sticking to my plan, either) most of the week. I've got my head back in the game today so I will weigh in tomorrow and hopefully will have some not-too-scary results. Ugh!

Good Morning!

Looks like are staying in Spring now. weight hasn't budged

Deb I think I will sit on the deck today.

Nikki good luck on the weigh in

Misty DH is at the LH working on the septic. He tries everything to not have to move the shed and tear out the concrete but that's what he had to do last weekend. Hopefully he will get the new line in this weekend and that will be all that is needed.

Karen is back

Where is Pat?

V feeling better? I think Moms was a liquid. She said she added it to water. But she is still throwing up even tho she quit it. So we are trying taking an anti acid with her pain pills. Still dress shopping?

Krista how you doing?

I may relax today. I am tuckered out.

Getting back with the program, down to 136.8. So, not too much damage done falling off the diet wagon this week.

I have to get to 135 by Tuesday for my official weigh-in on another site. Think I can do it?

Morning. Been working in the yard all morning. No more spasms. It's so pretty out. DH got the new line installed for the septic so things are working again.

Worth a try Nikki. Good luck

Off plan some the past couple days. Back in the saddle today

Yes back to the LH

Misty sounds like you had to scramble with the change of plans.
Worked in the yard today picking up fallen branches etc. got my nephew to help me haul a small fallen tree out into the woods. It's looking a lot better. Needs mowed. LD yard was mowed. He's spoiled.

Hey everyone, hope you all are having a nice weekend with your families. The weather here is quite beautiful, and we are having some nice rain showers move in.. and we need the rain. So it is quite welcome.

We are dealing with some rough news that we got this weekend. My father in law has a serious condition with his liver and it is not functioning at all right now. This was a complete shock to us, but something he has known about for several years. But, I guess FIL made a decision that he would not seek any treatment for it and now he has cirrhosis that has gone untreated for awhile. My dh is in a state of complete shock. His father is only 68 and retired in March. We just had their 50th anniversary as well in March. But he is so sick now I am worried he will not make it to the wedding next month.

It's been hard to think about much else. But, it does make me realize how precious our health is and not to let things slide or ignore the things that need to be changed.

Goodmorning, big clean-up day for me today. But Easter was great. Had 12 over but the weather was so nice. Did good on plan only has a 1 oz gain. I think that's a first for me with all the food. Got pea soup on the stove now.

V ss to hear about your FIL, sending prayers your way.

Deb love that bunny I just started back on the water too. I was slacking off. And I know it really helps. I use the infusion bottle too. I love it. Just bought another one.

Cheryl glad the back ache is gone. WTG on getting things running at the LH, it's getting nice fast, you'll be wanting to go there. Is it today that you Mom goes to the DRs. How she feeling.

Pat 2 lbs is good. Better down than a gain.

It hit 73 today, did some yard work and then sat on the deck for some sun. Brush fires all day, but dinner in the oven and DH got called back out. I hate when that happens and I real hungry.

Deb glad it was a quiet day. got my water in today too. Sounds like your doing something right with the scale, nice to see not gain.

Took Mom to the Dr. He thinks her fall aggravated her ruptured disc and that is causing her groin/knee pain. She is scheduled for an MRI Sunday. He thinks he can fix it with a shot of cortisone but wants to check it all out with the MRI. We also got her pain meds changed. Taking away the cranberry helped her nausea but she was still having problems and has a nasty taste in her mouth. She's dropped from 132 to 117#

Took Mom out to lunch today and ran into a girl(29 y/o) I watched grow up. I hadn't seen her for a year. She looked different. Turns out she has cancer- Hodgekins Lymphoma. It's usually very responsive to chemo. Chemo did nothing. She had a stem cell transplant. It's back. She had just come back from being measured for her radiation treatments. It really hit me hard.
