Actually the socks & shoes offer protection. I told him to keep his socks on at home, just in case one of them burst, do not want that on the carpet...cringe on trying to get that stain out... we were going to burst one with a sanitized pin (his suggestion) but I think we are not, just let it heal on its own... I read somewhere you aren't supposed to burst them...

I think you are doing the right thing....I had a really nasty burn on my arm years ago and it blew up into a horrible bubble, but found out it was best to leave it as the bubble or blister is there to protect it...its kind of like its own band aid......poor thing though it sounds awful, my burn bubble took about four days to pop on its own....yuk....and yep def don't want it on the carpet lol....tell him it serves him right for enjoying himself lol...(kidding).

Hey Sandy you gotta eat when your hungry right! Maybe you will see a drop anyway - who knows - the body tricks us sometimes! Sorry for the rainy weather . I sure did get my sunshine Vitamin D today and I'm super worn out, but happy.

Julie - I drink 3 cups of coffee in the morning. Each with 1/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk. I know a cup of unsweetened almond milk has 30 calories and less than 1 gram of carbs. Almond milk has twice the calcium as cow's milk. If you try it, make sure you read the labels. There are so many
different varieties. I've always wondered why the don't make yogurt using almond milk. I've used it to make sugar free pudding. Less carbs!

Well ok...I am not shutting up....I have to add I should have knocked some calories off my stats yesterday as I didn't drink three Bacardi and cokes....I was going to but then changed my mind and decided to be good...I count each one at a hundred....so my calorie count was three hundred less, oh I am so glad I did it now lol.....also yesterday I ate so much meat all day long, mainly chicken and beef and then also had some fish....I am in shock that I missed the 150's.....I don't know how eating the amount of food I did could cause such a good loss....but I am not going to do it again today lol, I am going to be terrified in the morning that it has gone up lol....I have to hold onto this number I just have to.....ok I think I am done now.....

I am terrified of eating to much as I have to hang onto that number to make sure it sticks....my worst nightmare will be seeing 150 in the morning....and as I am 149.8 that is a tad bit to close to 150 for my liking...the slightest thing could put it up.....just a few ounces and I will lose the magic number.....does it seem like I am freaking out lol....yes I am.....

I know how you feel Sandy. I had my coffee and 2 slices of bacon for breakfast, no lunch. But, I think I ate too much chuck roast at dinner! And I will have one square of dark chocolate later. What's done is done!

It was so funny, I even weighed myself in the middle of the night on the way to the loo lol, and it was the same then....I have to be so mindful today of what I am eating to see if I can nudge it down a few ounces....it is to scary to be so close to that horrible number....I feel like I am balancing on the edge of a cliff lol.....hubby thinks I have gone mad but it is making him laugh lol.

Thanks for you support everyone....lets hope the scales move for all of you today, fingers crossed.....for me I am just grateful to be where I was yesterday lol.
