Mike thanks for the updated info on your friend! And yes our thoughts are with him and you. What a hero he is.

My hubby was discharged early this am. Despite only finishing surgery yesterday afternoon he was bootin all around on his crutches this am so the doctors were impressed enough to let him go home. I picked him up and he is now at home with my 17 year old while I work. He was told his recovery is going to take 5 months.

Darlene you are doing great! And we were oh so close for the walk. Yes lets do a challenge this week. My dog is loving it. It was -12 yesterday am but beautiful today.

Jenn, on your breakfast, my advice was the same to Jezzie last week about the popcorn at the theatre. When you go to a high risk situation eat first. Something nutritious and filling. Then you can "sample" stuff without going over on your cals. I did this back in Jan when I went to chinese buffet for my birthday and it worked out well.

Good Monday to everyone else. My goals are the same as every week although I am gradually reintroducing some physical activity (thank goodness)

robingen - 5 months! But glad your husband was able to come home so soon and that he can manage on crutches already.

Good advice about eating something nutritious and filling before you go out to eat. Before I go to a restaurant, I like to check out the menu online. I choose the best option or two for me from the online menu while I'm in a "sane" frame of mind. Then when I enter the restaurant and smell the fries and other wonderful aromas, I already know what I'm going to have and don't have to be tempted by the other offerings on the menu. (I do just peek at the menu to make sure my choice is still there - occasionally the restaurant has updated their menu and left the new one online).

Default Goals

I was pretty successful with my goals and with starting to lose weight last week---5 pounds gone. Yay! Week 1 down. That is usually one of the most difficult, just getting started. The next week will be difficult also (not my first rodeo!), but once I start losing a little and noticing the difference in my clothes and start hearing some positive feedback I'll wonder why I waited so long.

So, I still want to keep it simple...

My goals:
Keep daily food journal (can't believe how this helps), 1200-1500 calories
Walk 15 minutes a day, and add 15 more minutes for 3 days
Drink lots of water
Avoid sugar (my downfall)

Thanks for the support.

So far this is what's going on.


I'm in the process of hashing out the details to put together a concert for him but that will be at a later date.

Thanks everyone for the continued prayers!
