Your welcome Rebecca. Hope you have a good day.
I slept in this a.m. so just getting going for the day!I don't sleep that great sometimes with my back & sciatica so every now and then I seem to crash!Hopefully losing weigh will improve some of the aches & pains.
I dusted off the exercycle and tried it out but it doesn't work that well.Can't really afford another one just rightnow so might have to get back into walking.

Our thread here can be just a continuation or we can do it mthly so let me know if you guys want me to to change it . OK
Seeya later then

Oh yeah I like the new thread good name Pamela!
I weighed in Saturday and I was down again. I love to see that scale going down.
I plan on some activity this evening, I plan to use my new to me Gazelle at least when it's raining I will have a way to exercise. I gave my bicycle away last year and I have missed not having any machine to exercise on.
I am not really trying to keep the carbs low but, I do really watch them on Friday before weigh in Saturday morning.
What days does every one weigh in on?
Mine is Saturday mornings at my meeting.

I am trying to keep my carbs to healthier ones and tending lower GI..you know, brown rice etc.I guess alittle like the old CORE but am counting points so amixture of both I loved the quicker WL on atkins & M&E but for me ww's is more daoble longterm .We each have to find what works for us best and I have lost track of how many times I have tried the really LC way way.Others do really well on it and that is great, it is just not for me. Hubby is happier with me eating this way too so that is important to me too.

Well have a good day you two.....I have to busy myself with afew chores so BBL

I agree I have tried everything under the sun and the only thing I can stay on for any amount of time is Weight Watchers.

I do try to eat more whole grains etc, all my bread I eat is high fiber and I do try to only have a couple of servings a day, but I eat cereal, and bread, chips and some granola bars etc. Keeps me from feeling deprived.
When I did Weight Watchers at home Friday morning was my weigh in day, so I could use my weekly points and have a good weekend.
Have a great day onward and downward!

Morning Rachel
I am up super early...it is 6.30,M,as I write! We had to get up ear;ly as the truckload of post peelings is coming so Hubby & I have afew good workouts ahead putting it around the garden. We have a longish drive and garden along the bank too....quite a big garden in all. Willl be good to get some ,moisture back into the garden.
I hope to go out with Brian later and look at some more plants for some winter colour..different coloured foilage.All my dahlia bulbs have finished flowering now so need some colour for the autumn/winter.

I am so glad to have you guys to do this journey with....I know I am going to get to goal this time . I am longing for abit more 'spring' in my step

Hi to you too Rebecca Have a great day you two....I better get dressed before this truck arrives BBL

Hello, didn't get a chance to check in yesterday with u two. Are either of u on Facebook? I'm Rebecca Dillon Adams, if u are and want to send me a friend request.

I must admit I haven't been keeping track of my points, just trying to eat Weight Watcherish, but today I'm gonna start keeping my journal. If I don't, I will start playing around too much, ya know? Like, if its not written down, I really didn't eat it? So, I got my little 3 month points journal out that I bought and never used.

Today is a errand day with my Mom, she has an appt with the eye doc this afternoon to laser cut an internal stitch in her eye. She had extensive glacoma surgery on April 24.

I can't believe my little granddaughter, Gracelynn (Gracie) will be 1 in exactly a month. Her sister, Alyssa will be 4 on June 10, their birthdays are really close. My husband and I only have one child,a daughter, Kimberly. She just opened her own Medical Massage Therapy business, she bought it from a girl she use to rent space from. She's currently working part time for a chiropractor. Lots of exciting things happening here! But busy things too. Lol.

I can't re$ember if you guys are doing meeting or online. I was doing meetings (or weighing and leaving if I had the girls with me) but were a little low on money right now, so I'm doing it on my own at the moment. We had to pay in taxes this year, we usually get a refund, but that new tax credit that the president gave on our checks, hit my checks pretty hard. So we had to take about $600 out of the savings.

Hope u both have a good day!!! Weigh ins for 2 of u tomorrow? I usually weigh in on Tuesdays, but I've had several people say they have Fridays as their weigh in day for the same reasons that Rachael (I think it was u, Rachael) mentioned, having the 35 pts for the weekend.

Yep that is the best way to go.....it is too easy to coast along and count them in ya head...never seems to give the results you were hoping for.Maybe you might get by if you were up to maintenance...Journalling is a very useflul tool and helps with the acountability side of things when you are not weighing in each wk ~ ww's I am not weighing in ....just doing it myself here at homewith you guys for xtra accountability. Hubby does not have work so I am trying to be frugal too . He officially retires in a year so it is not looking very hopeful he will get a job...one day at a timeeh ! Just glad we don't have a mortgage!

You are kept pretty busy I see. Hope ya Mum gets on good with her appt. It is amazing what they can do now a days Eye surgery always fascinated me but I never did get much ENT experience as a trainee nurse.I ended up ICU/CCU post grad and loved it.But my working days are over now. We had a great team but they were sure good days...the place has changed so much. These days you have to almost be a technician as well working there , lol.

Yay for pamela... Good morning Rachael!!!

Just came from the doc, my allergies are kicking my behind. Lots of pretty blooming trees but my lungs aren't liking them! He gave me 5 days of Prednisone and an antibiotic, and told me NOT to miss my inhalers (I'm asthmatic).

BBL when I can post more, have a good day!
