How nice to have that front stepping stone :-) Now your grandbabies can step on it too and create many more new memories.

I hear ya on the weight, I don't even want to look at the scale after the weekend I had. *sigh* Summer IS tough! We got this though....

Well that's the best news I've had all day! We are planning a trip to Key West (Jan or Feb) and a Tulip Time Tour to the Netherlands in April !!! You made me smile Gail !!!

Yes, I thought the same thing about the grandkids and hopefully when I leave this earth that step will be cherished by one of my grandkids!

One more party today and then back on plan for awhile! Chinese food, cupcakes, ice cream cake over the past 2 days have left me with an additional pound. Not bad ... but after today, I see lettuce in my future !

Susan, a one pound gain is nothing. Plus it is a long holiday weekend so with so many parties and social events going on, it is tough to stay on strict low carb.

Wow that is not bad!! Way to control it. A little goodness here and there is not going to make you gain 10 pounds in a day, I just wish I had the control to eat just a "little" of that goodness hee heee....One pound would be nice if that is all I gained in a weekend.

Hope the rest of your weekend was good!

Well 3 months have gone by and I am fat again! 163.8 ! Each day I tell myself that I will be better with my choices and each day I have failed. When I see myself in photos I am not happy with my appearance. I have been reluctant to post because if I miss a day of journaling everything goes down hill. I need to get it together in order to slim down! I need to stick with it and concentrate on what I am doing ! Here I go again! Wish me luck!

Thank You Laura and Gail ! I need your encouraging words !

I managed to finish yesterday with 1,000 calories & under 20 net carbs! My night time snacks were turkey pepperoni slices and sliced broccoli stalks. A much better choice than the night before which was warm peach pie with vanilla ice cream .............

I'm logging my food so I can track calories and carbs once again. If I can get my brain back into the LC game, I'll be able to make it! Thanks again girls!

Wow, you have lost over a pound already -- you can do this. If you stay in the right mindset, you will have all of your weight off before the holidays too.

It's so nice to see the number on the scale move downward! But I know it will take some time to get to where I want to be. And ALOT of WILLPOWER! It will be worth it to not feel "so thick" in the middle !

Gail - I so hope to be back to my siggy weight by the holidays or even before !!! So mad at myself for losing my mindset in the first place.

You've got this Gail ! I know you will be there by the Holidays, just takes a few days to get back in the swing of things...

Great start !

Susan, you will be back to your fighting weight by late November/early December. Don't be mad at yourself. Channel that energy into something positive like staying on plan.

Scale is going down though! I get insomnia too. I think sometimes when you just start low carb, you body chemistry changes and that can cause that wide awake feeling. Hopefully you can take a nap later!

Is it rainy where you are today? We are getting some rain/gloomy weather from Karen today in Boston and I am wondering if you will get it in the Baltimore area too.

Try to take it easy and have something yummy but low carb for lunch and dinner. Remember to treat yourself even though you are on low carb! Find a great recipe or have your husband take you out to a nice steak or seafood meal!

Well, I didn't get out of bed until 9:15 today! WOW! That certainly is "sleeping in" for me! I think I woke up so early yesterday because I knew my day was going to be very busy. I had the alarm set for 5:00 am in order to get ready for a little shopping adventure with my sister. (I have to drink my coffee!) We had to be on the road at 7:00 am to reach our destination "Gypsy Faire" . It's a vintage style store filled with furniture, home decor, do-dads and junkady junk that we love! There is always a line of customers waiting for the 8:00 opening of the doors. I found some treasures - vintage red and rusty tin container, old veggie scale and the cutest little child's school desk - the kind with iron scrolled legs and wooden seat and top - it's adorable! I think I'll give it to my daughter for Xmas for porch decor. It would be so cute with a plant sitting on it.

We also stopped at two other thrift stores on the way home and then it was time to grocery shop. Then I had to be at DD's house to watch the twins so she and her hubby could go the a 4:00 wedding.

Needless to say, I had a full day. Today will be a quiet one I hope!

No rain from "Karen" yet, but hope to see some tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone!

Yay -- you lost another two pounds! That is awesome -- so happy for you! Gypsy Faire sounds fabulous -- and I love the sound of the child's school desk that you bought.

Managed to hold my weight after having lunch out yesterday. Had crab cake with grilled vegetables. Dinner was a big green salad with Walden Farm dressing (a no nothing salad dressing). I did make an apple crisp for DH and I DID NOT taste it! YAY! for me.

No twins today - they will be home with their daddy as he is off duty today. I think I will look for that delicata squash that Gail likes and buy some pumpkins and ornamental cabbage to decorate the front steps. Still no rain and unseasonably HOT - rain would be very welcomed!

The scale is still going down the Susan -- you are making progress in the right direction. Glad you have the day off! And even happier that you did not try the apple crisp - that is fabulous! You are going to love the delicata squash -- nice taste and for 3/4 cup, only 7 carbs and 31 calories! Hope you have a great day today!

Woo Hoo! Back in the 150's! Alot more to go but I'm pleased with this number!

Could not find the delicata squash - but I did get an acorn squash. It was very delicious. Baked it with just a little butter.

Got the mums, gourds and pumpkins to finish the Fall Decor out front. Had a good day yesterday!

And it finally RAINED !!!!!!!! And the temps dropped dramatically !!!!!!!

Holding this number, but I really want it to move down. I have been counting carbs and calories vigilently. I'm suffering with a head cold right now which is no fun. I guess I can't expect a miracle in such a short amount of time. But I will continue with the journey to at least get back to 150 by Thanksgiving and take it from there!
