Beautiful weather here. I will be weighing in on Sunday, the 28th for my once a month weigh in. I know I will be down of course. People keep commenting about my weight loss too which is encouraging.

Mindless eating.
Didn't know I did it.
Last night I was watching the finale of Big Brother and taking my medications.
I take the gummy vitamins as I have swallowing problems.
I'd gotten interested in what they were saying.
Kept eating those delicious little candies.
Oh wait a minute I don't eat candy.
Oh wait another minute, this isn't candy.
I'd eaten maybe half a bottle without even paying attention.
Now that is mindless eating.
My stomach hasn't liked me today.
My head hasn't liked me today.
Lesson learned.

On Swimming, I absolutely love the water.
It is 20 miles to the nearest pool.
We used to have one right next to our home in Littleton, CO.
I swam 1 hour of laps every night after work while my children has a good time in the pool.
Was in the best shape of my life.

Good morning ladies; Congratulations!!!!! on your weightloss Vicki!! I always appreciate it when someone cleans out my car it makes you feel appreciated. Hope you enjoyed your lunch. I realize you already know this N2L, no disrespect intended but, I would be careful with vitamins. I'm not sure what an overdose will do to you. So many things mess up your liver. I always enjoyed swimming, haven't been for many years. My sport was always running, I wouldn't be able to get away from a perpetrator if my life depended on it anymore, but I still walk.

Vickie, Nice going girl.
You will see Onederland at your next weigh in!
jmh6251, thank you for the reminder.
I do know that ODing on vitamins can be dangerous.
I spent some time after my binge trying to find out just what I'd done to my body.
All that I read said if the gummies didn't have iron it should be alright.
That said, I don't plan to do it again that is for sure.
Susan, so glad to see you posting.
I'm concerned about Jet and all the rain in Phoenix.
Wish she would post again to let us know she is o.k.
Had a chicken salad today and 1/4 apple with unsweet tea.
97% humidity here today.
I have the softest skin today as a result.
N2L

Chicken salad sounds yummy, I haven't had it for awhile. Today is probably going to be another busy day. Have to take DGS to do his shopping, probably bring him back with me. I need to go to my women's bible study at 2:00. Food is going pretty well, been staying on track all weekend. Friday I ate more then I should have. I've accepted the fact that some days are going to be like that. I will jump on the treadmill here shortly and try to get in 30 minutes

What an amazing storm we've had for the past couple days.
Lots of rain, much needed.
Continuous thunder, never have heard thunder that just went on and on for a couple days.
There was lightning with it and some lost power, tvs, and other electrical things.
We were fortunate, no power loss or any damage to anything electrical here.
It now feels like fall getting ready to go into winter.
Hope everyone doing well.
Have a great week.

Two very small chickens are in the oven. Each under 2 lbs, that won't go far LOL.

I love this weather too. Did anyone get to see the lunar eclipse today?

Vicki, Cornish game hens?
Been forever since I cooked any, used to be a regular thing back when I cooked and ate anything and everything.
Back when I was thin.
Don't know why I now think eggs, eggs, and more eggs.

Good morning ladies; We have had incredible weather today. It's been mild and warm all month so far. The 2 small chickens in the oven sounded delicious. What did you have to go with them Vicki? We had Pork Chops and mashed Cauliflower for dinner last night and I made a LC Pudding for dessert. I think I need to get my back and hip pain reassesed next week by the doctor. Though he probably won't do anything since he never did anything last time I saw him except sympathize. There are days I can hardly move the pain is so bad. Though I will say today it seems better. I can relate N2L, There are days I think fondly of being able to eat anything and not gaining an ounce. Of course that was before having children. I see pictures of myself and think whatever happened to that girl. Well this morning I woke up at 3:10 and have been awake ever since. Finally got up at 3:50 and decided to get a head start on morning chores. Although I still have quite alot to get done I am ahead of the game. Hope everything is going well Omablu, and we miss you Chanteyl and anybody else who hasn't posted in quite awhile.

I don't think they were cornish game hens, just very small chickens. I ended up baking them but of course there wasn't much for leftovers after feeding two teen boys, a hubby and myself.

jmh, I have nights where I do the same thing, awaken early and finally get out of bed. I have started taking magnesium in the evening and that seems to help with the sleep. I have tried Melatonin too with some success. What is nice about the magnesium, it knocks out my leg cramps.

Good afternoon to all. Well it has been a few days since I have checked in so I thought I would. Nothing much going on around here. Next week CJ my grandson leaves for school. I will certainly miss him, but it is time he did something. The weather is finally turning fall like, yesterday we went for a ride to see if any fall colors were left and they were not. I have been lazy today not feeling too much like doing my household chores, but I know I have to get off my duff and get something done. I have been going on the internet to get more ideas on menus. I seem to have fallen in a rut. I get tired of eating the same thing all the time. I tried your Magnesium trick Vicki, but maybe I have the wrong kind because it didn't work. Well I hope this finds everyone doing great and have a good week
