Thank you for the support Meek, yes I am at peace.. it is like a weight lifted off my shoulders when I ditched the d i e t. FOR ME.. it works.

OH and I am back on the drops!! that is helping me to eat less I am sure!

As long as you're losing, that's all that matters!
You've always done well on Atkins and the drops! Go Boo GO!

Hey Deb & friends!

Blackberries, cheeries, and watermelon?

Now I'm craving fresh blueberries in heavy cream.

ok you ladies!! I AM NOW HUNGRY.... OMG cherries are my absolute favorite fruit of all time. They are soooooooo expensive here now.. There is like a few weeks every year where they go down enough for me to justify buying them FOR ME... then I hide them from the kids...

I love love love summer fruit!.. peaches, apricots, cherries, watermelon, canteloupe, grapes, nectarines, kiwi, ok there is NOTHING fruit wise that I don't lke...

I think I could actually go a whole day and eat fruit all day long with one steak and I would be happy as a lark... won't happen, but I could!..

Girl. I'm going to finish out this round strong and then call it quits! I miss the low-carb lifestyle. Looking at my old pictures has brought back so many happy memories. I want that feeling back again, lol.

ok, some sad news.. sorry to vent but I cant talk about this at work.. My friend who lost her job here recently, that I was sad for, and hoping she was going to just find something better soon. Just found out she has stage 2 kidney cancer and told us a minute ago... So darn sad.. not sure what to say to help her feel better.

Anyway, gosh darn it, I am not handling this well.. but I find myself REALLY wanting to get healthy now more than ever.. no more excuses... eating right as I am NOW... and adding more exercise in than I have been doing is a good start...

OH NO! So sorry to hear about your coworker/friend. I know you care a great deal about her. I pray she is healed.

Losing weight for health reason is more important than anything. You're off to a good start... keep going.

Thank you Shari, I know this is right! She just is so scared right now.. and I would be too... we are definately friends outside work, so of course this is hitting me harder than the others here.

All I can do is be there for her and help in any way I can.. and take this as a wake up call.. FOR SURE. I seriously have lost my appetite today. Only good things will enter these lips from this day forward.. no more poisen..

I wouldn't know what to say to her either so just being there I'm sure is comforting. I'd be scared and so sad too. I just sent a prayer for her.

Morning Loretta!! thank you .. .we found out this morning that her surgeon has checked out the scans and thinks that when he removes the kidney that she will be fine... she is SO RELIEVED! he is a top notch surgeon and that sure made me feel better too... thank all of you for your prayers...

I agree with you on something about 40 makes us realize that we are not immortal and we may as welll live the rest of our days healthy as we can be! I have renewed sense of well being today, and am going to stay with it... I must do all I CAN DO.. to get there... hope all is well for you too!!

Thanks Dessa... I woke up today, knowing I MUST get into better shape. All things aside, I still have a long way to go to be in GOOD shape, weight wise AND just toning up. I also need to work on my stamina.. it will happen!

We'll get there, won't we I really need to work on my exercise, that's the good thing about being back at work, the gym's next door and I have a few partners here. I have to work on my consistency. I've gotta get out of "well, its better than nothing" idea in my head, I have to move every day for overall well-being!

Water exercise is the best, I hear. Was suggested by our physical therapist pre-op for helping reduce loose skin. I have a pool right across my door, I should use it. I don't swim but I can kick a lil bit in the kiddie section!

I can swim, but kicking does a good job on the legs and I really need that!... I am taking today off of work to get some errands done, and when I return I will do my swimming workout, then I shall check in!.. have a wonderful day Dessa!!
