Hi Group!! Sorry I've been MIA. I've been struggling some, eating okay, drinking the water, not exercising enough, main struggle is not what I'm doing, but the attitude of wanting to EAT!! It's not sweets, it's just food!! Now and then I just reach a point where I really miss some of the foods that I don't eat because they're bad for me!! I want BAD!!! Ughhhh!!! So, I fight it every day and make better choices and eat the healthier alternatives and do the right things, but I don't want to do that!! I want what I really want and lots of it!! Poor me...poor poor me...LOL!! I'll get my head in line again soon and in the meantime, I'll keep pushing myself to keep on doing the right things. ::sigh::

Looks like you gals are doing okay.....

Teri...Nice you got away on vacation!! You sure did well while there too..congrats!!

Ann...You have a good plan and know what to do and I know you'll do it!! Hope your knee settles down soon too!

Hilary...Say hello to that "little man" and tell him I'm sorry I'll never have the opportunity to meet him!! LOL! Darn on you not feeling well again! I was like that all the time when my grands were little. They were sick often and I'd catch it and there wasn't enough time in between to rebuild resistance!! All that will pass eventually, just do the best you can!

Hi everyone..
Dh took me out for a walk in the forest today, (Coffee ran free off leash and rolled in the leaves). It was so nice to go out. He found me a really nice stick to try out as a cane, he thinks I need one for the time being. It did seem to keep me walking in a straighter line (and of course there's nothing to hold on to along the trails). So I am considering it. We'll see.

How wonderful that your dh took you for a walk in the forest today and that Coffee found you a walking stick of sorts. :smileyhappy:

Its a long story, but I've walked with a cane before and still sometimes use one...............................its nice having the support.

It's not sweets that is my problem. I don't have any sweets around. It's everything else!! I'd love to have real bbq pork ribs instead of the Lean Cuisine bbq that just doesn't do it for me!! At the family bday party last Saturday, I had fried chicken. Wow, did that ever taste good!! I wanted more and more!!! It's stuff like that, the real stuff that I'm missing!! Oh, and crusty bread and real butter and lots of it until I'm stuffed with it!! Missing those things lately a lot!! But this will pass and things will be back to normal again soon. ::sigh::
You do realize I would have to kill you if it wasn't breakfast time around here!
