Relaxing day....Feeling great with another little loss...it all adds up as each day passes...I think of how I will feel several months from now....
Low carbs and low cals today...
I have allowed myself that one choc..coconut bar at lunch time a couple of days...and I am not really craving sweets...but I guess it has helped me...I do drink the Zero vanilla coke or Zero Big Red...I have stayed with no food after 5:30pm for 2 months and have not missed it....I know that I am feeling the difference in my clothes but I still know I will not really feel like I am losing until this next 25lbs comes off....

HI Mary....I am back, I decided it was easier to stay over on the mainland with her....I did have fun with all the kids though so that was nice, she has four so that kept me pretty busy....although I am up about 2 pounds but it could have been worse, anyway I have to clean, hubby started his job on Tuesday so my house is a mess lol, and then I am going to sit in the sunshine and chill, be back later.

Hi Mary...I just noticed your scale has moved again for you...wow you will be in onederland before you know it...you are doing amazing....
I can't imagine weeds growing in desert rocks, in fact I can't even imagine desert rocks lol, today when we were at the beach I told my hubby when he dies I am putting an ad in your local paper for a husband so I can move to Arizona lol.....it was really nice out today until the sun went in and then with the sea breeze it was chilly, well I was chilly dh is never chilly....lucky you living somewhere so warm....tomorrow I see on the weather that we are expecting rain....
It sounds like your dh has lots of jobs to do, still it will be nice having him home from work even though he will be busy, its nice having them around...Nicks job is going well and I am actually enjoying the time I am having by myself, he finishes at four so home by ten past and straight down the beach with the dogs, so its working out really well.
You did well on getting those chairs, if only they could talk lol, I wonder what history they have behind them, did they tell you anything about them, probably not but I love to think of the storys that they could tell.
I am so with you on those remotes and all the buttons lol, in our last house I think we had like four remotes, I could never figure anything out, now we just have two lol.....its sounds great what you have done though....much simpler, I hate complicated lol.

Sounds like you are doing well and enjoyed your holiday time with dh...even though he sounds like he needs to be five men, he does have a lot of jobs to do, but its lovely making things look better, I think its an ongoing project with houses and yards...
Our Easter was quiet, daughter and all the grandchildren were each off doing their own thing, but I am going over next weekend to visit them so I am looking forward to that.
We had a nice weekend with the weather apart from Sunday, but today its supposed to be sunny but its cloudy mainly and the sun is peeking out every now and again, so I guess it must mean a cleaning day....but its good to get caught up so when the sun does shine I can be outside playing in the dirt.
Hope your day is a good one.

I love having a good sort out as well....it just makes everything feel fresher doesn't it.....that is so good to hear about the breathing...and it is only going to get better and better......are you enjoying the atkins mudslide, in a few weeks I am going to try the odd one or two so let me know if its a good one to get.
I have been spring cleaning, its lovely having more time to do the things I want with dh at work now.....I love it lol.....now I sound awful, but its just nice having my house to myself again.
I have no idea what chicken gizzards are, I was just reading back and meant to ask you last time....or don't I want to know lol....it sounds really strange though...

LOL....Most people like the Chicken livers but they are too strong tasting for me...the Gizzards are alittle tougher ...ofcourse most people fry them as we call it Chickenfried...lol...means fried in a flour batter lol....I just cut the qizzard up into small pieces and keep the tender meat then cook in olive oil and then add some creamcheese sauce over it...just something different...don't want it everyday lol....I fried some Jicama sticks last night...not so low carb...but when they are fried they look just like homefries...and I rolled them in garlic powder and chili powder...they were not FFs and I didn't care for them but other people would I am sure...

I love that DH works too...it makes it nice to have the house to myself....I do whatever I want...yes I keep the house clean..very clean lol and the laundry is always done BUT ....I also do what I enjoy doing...whatever that might be....crafts or decorating...or just reading a good book...lol..I love it...ofcourse I do enjoy when he gets home...but He goes to bed at 8 or 830pm every weekday night and I don't go to bed until around midnight....and he gets up at 2am...and goes to work at 5am...I don't why he gets up so early but he has always done that he says...Weekends are our time..working together or just relaxing together...so it works out for us....
Am happy the scales are moving on down...YEA...feeling great here....

The gizzards sound quite tasty with the way you cook them....and it sounds like your scale is going down...awesome Mary you will soon be at your milestone soon....I will celebrate with you when you get there, unreal how far you have come so far.
Its funny how we all have our routines that suit us like your hubby seems love to get up early, that is really early isn't it lol, I like 7.30 ish or 8am and bed by 11 but don't go to sleep until about 12.
I hope you have a lovely weekend with your dh, I am off to the mainland to see all the grandchildren, I don't go very often but have to start making more of an effort, anyway have a great weekend, I was going to write hope the sun is shining lol, but it probably is...here it is 55 and a bit cloudy....but we are getting there slowly lol.

Have fun with your grandchildren....would love to be with mine....July will get here sometime lol....
It is nice this morning....65 and cloudy and the wind is breezy...DH is out mowing the lawn....looking nice now...He had to fix the shower head in our bathroom this morning with a little leak that was driving us crazy lol....Then we are putting up 2 outside lights on the sides of our garage...I am just doing a load of laundry...it is so easy now with my new machines...I love that I don't have to reach down in the washing machine tub and stretch and stretch for the clothes... lol ....now just reach in and out...fast...Love days that are so cool...house is clean ...candles glowing and smelling good all over the house...cozy ....I have been sitting for awhile each day putting photos away into albums ....those I haven't scrapbooked yet...I need to get an ink refill for my CP so I can print off some more...I use Walgreens photo specials when I need to get a large amt. developed...it cost a lot to print all of them on my printer so only the ones I want to fix the photo do I print on CP..

I do feel better about my weight...I just go one day at a time for sure and I look for that long goal line I am moving toward...I don't get discouraged or go hungry so I will make it...It is like working on one of my projects...it has a beginning and a finish product...and that is me in progress...working on me...lol

It sounds like you are enjoying your new washing machine...I have gotten used to the front loaders again since being back in England but I used to love my top loader in Canada lol, but you are right it is easy to get the clothes out and the machines do seem to wash better......it sounds like you are so organized with a nice clean house and candles on the go, I still have to much spring cleaning to do before I get to that point, I think having dh at home stopped me getting on with a lot of jobs so its good to get back into a routine again.
That sounds like a nice job putting all your pics into albums, you can't beat having them in albums can you, when they are all on the computer in folders its just not the same....I have been meaning to do something like this for years, so maybe I will get round to it one of the days.
I liked your last two sentences, I actually read it twice as it is true.....one day at a time moving slowly forward, not getting hungry and like a project in progress....very cool Mary.
I forgot to mention I like your new picture, very cute lol....also your friend in Jesus picture.

That did make me laugh....it is tiring though watching these men work lol....it sounds like he is really getting all the jobs done isn't he.....your back yard sounds like it is going to look lovely....oh a fountain that will be nice, we had one in Canada and I used to love listening to it trickle on a hot day, and watch the birds bathing in it, I love this time of year when we can do outside jobs.....I have so many seedlings on the go at the moment that it is keeping me really busy moving them in and out of the sun etc....its fun though, my favourite thing is playing in the dirt lol.....have a great day Mary.....oops did your scale move again lol....I just noticed.....congratulations Mary whoop whoop, well done you.

Hi Mary Frances, I just wanted to tell you that you have a lovely weight loss journal. I have only read through the first few pages, but it is enjoyable reading. And with your friend Sandy talking with you every day. Both of you ladies are doing very well on your weight loss journey.

What really pulled me in was both of you talking about how seldom some of your sons check in with you. Gee, I thought I was the only mom struggling with that. I have one son who is 34 and lives locally here in GA. I hear from him maybe once a week, maybe not. He and my DIL NEVER come to visit unless we invite them to dinner. Married 9 years, no children. My youngest son is 26. He lives 3 hours away with his wife. They are both teachers. My son is especially busy as he is a music teacher and band director. He may call me once every 2 or 3 weeks, but has only come to our home one day for Christmas each of the last 2 years. He comes to our town all the time because his in-laws live about 40 minutes away from us, but unfortunately his wife does not like us. This situation has caused me much anguish over the last 4 years. I finally decided like you, I have had to turn the situation over to The Lord.

Sorry to ramble so on my first time contacting you. You just seem like such a nice person who totally understands that type of situation. I hope you don't mind if I drop in to read more!

Welcome Laura ....drop in anytime....I am here most days...lol

Yes we go thru life not understanding sometimes about our children mostly now they are grown ...It is hard to understand why things have gone the way they have with my sons...one stays close to me in thoughts and one does not want anything to do with me right now... but we all make choices...I love them both so much and they know that in their heart.....but families take detours off the path sometimes and families fall away from each other...but I know that God knows everything ....I just love them and pray for them everyday...and they know that Mother is always here for them...God never fails us...

Now I am working on me losing my weight so I will stay in good health.....This is my goal for now just as I have tried to talk to my sons about them having goals...It is never to let to have them...

Sandy is a sweet friend.....you see she only has a small amt...to lose so I am jealous of her LOL haha
One day at a time...I will make it...So come in a visit with me....

Well groceries are bought and all my errand got done.....load of laundry in the dryer..okkk
I walked a lot today everywhere so that was good....Had a Me day out to lunch so ate at our little Buffet so I would eat on track....and I did...
Working on drinking my water today....that is the hardest for me...But Will have to have make some fresh Ice tea later this evening...

Found this book at my library today for sale for 50 cents....Called (Win the Fat War)...not low carb but just about losing weight the right way...interesting.....

Have decided that I will let my carbs be from 30 to 40 and calories not more than 1200 for awhile....I know that I loss a lot better at this pace ...and I don't want to always feel like I am on a diet instead of a good weight plan for life for me....I just want to know I can deal with no flour or sugar unless it is my free meal I give myself and I have not even done that so far...I do think of bread but I don't crave it like I always did and my potatoes too....Only 1 free meal out and I had 3 tacos with the corn tortillas...and 2 times 1/3 of a sm. popcorn at the movies....

I have to admire your willpower, Mary Frances. That is the biggest stumbling block I have, flour and sugar. I guess that is why I can't lose this weight. I had 20 pounds to lose. Then I had to start taking some medicine last winter for chronic migraines. Boy, I gained another 20 pounds from March 2013 to February this year. Finally the weight gain stopped when I came off the medicine. But now I have 40 pounds to lose! I weigh more than I ever have.

Do you get hungry during the day? I've got to buckle down and decide I'm just going to do it. Thanks for the invitation to the Joy challenge. I am going to check it out.

Laura...I know that the sugar and flour are my down fall for sure and that is what causes me to gain my weight...so that is a no no from now on....I gained 10 lbs a year these last 5 years since I remarried and moved to AZ with my DH...I didn't even notice it...mmmmmm so now I am on my mission to lose it all plus what I needed to anyway....
I have my first 30 off so want to not pick up those pounds ever again.......

Sandy....I want some of you rain....RIGHT NOW! LOL...I need it for my yard...and plants....My weeds just grow and grow ...they don't need water LOL... I will send you SUN...in exchange....
I walked on the steps in my pool today...water is still cold but it felt wonderful...Had a long day with grocery shopping and errands...DH says he thinks we will go to home next month instead of July...so I am happy...I told my youngest son but haven't heard from him yet....DH has a lot of days off he need to use up or lose so that is ok with me...

Well time for me to get into my book I am reading... Have a great evening

Hi Mary, that is incredible how much you have lost so far, you are doing so well, yes I agree flour is my downfall as well, I love things like scones etc, my one total weakness, it must be the English in me lol as I can pass up most things but put a scone in front of me and I gone and so is the scone lol.
I would definitely send you some rain if I could lol, today it is on and off cloudy, its mainly cloudy when I go in the garden and the sun comes out when I go in....but it feels nice and warm outside so I think we are slowly getting there......isn't that funny that weeds don't need water but the flowers do, I find the same thing.
I am having problems with slugs again, they ate all my tiny batchelor buttons seedlings overnight, I guess there was about forty of them, I think I have four little seedlings left, they drive me mad, last year every night at around 11pm we would go out in the garden with the flashlight as that is when they come out, we caught hundreds of them, but it seems there are just as many this spring....
I have had the most stressful morning....I keep putting things down and losing them, I have lost two things already today and can't find them anywhere, they were both on my desk....first one thing disappeared and then about 2 hours later something else disappeared....I guess I must have moved them....but to where lol, I have turned my house upside down and they are both gone....it has driven me mad lol, I will be glad when dh comes home and finds them for me, he is so good at finding things, I have even checked the garbage lol.
You will soon be in your pool won't you, and when our summer does come I will envy you lol.
So you are off to Texas next month instead of July, oh that will be lovely for you to catch up with family, who do you have living there, I am sure you told me but I have forgotten.

Also waving to Laura, Hi Laura nice to meet you.....
well I would ramble more but luckily for you I still haven't cleaned everything I was supposed to clean yet....its a holiday here on Monday so it will be nice to spend three days with dh and not have to do any cleaning etc.....have a great weekend Mary.

Well I know that the only thing I find in my yard is burnt flowers and plants...this is the desert and hot desert for sure...I am learning what and where to put my plants and the ones just don't even try...After 5 yrs here you would think I would know by now what works...I told DH that I know I can grow Cactus and place lots of rocks and they do well....haha lol
Had a ME DAY for myself yesterday so I am back to the homefront to work today...Going out in the yard for alittle while ...it is 80 already this morning...wow...
