    I've never been on a cruise either... I don't feel deprived.

    Take lots of pictures. In a couple of years you'll love hearing people look at them and commenting on how much better you look than back then.

    Seriously. I was at my top weight for my son's wedding. Whenever people look at the pictures, I get comments. Especially from the people who see me every day and are used to how I look now. It kind of jolts them to be reminded of what I used to be.

      Thank you Judg!
      I will take lots of pics that is one thing that is a hobby of mine is photography. I'm not sure If I will take my Big camera though. I may just take hubs camera it's got all the features I need and it fits in the pocket. Plus it takes video.

      Back down to 187.5 which means the next move is downward further. I am hoping for 185 in the next week or so.
      I made a casserole last night with spagetti squash - it turned out watery I think I added too much tomato sauce. or not enough egg or something.
      Yesterday =
      b-Greek yogurt/blueberries/strawberries
      l-apple/almonds/macadamias
      d - spagetti sqaush casserole/zucchini/summer squash

          Once I got past all of the weird looks for not eating grains and sugar it's been pretty easy to stick with.

            Saw your comment about chili on Judg's journal. Recently I have been making my beef stew with chunks of sweet potato. The sweet potato just falls apart after two hours of simmering, and makes the stew nice and thick. It might work well in chili, too.

                Oooh, I like that idea too. I like adding a peeled apple to my beef stews, for the flavour. It also reduces to apple sauce. Hmm, that might work in the chili too... Apples or sweet potatoes.

                  Okay drum roll -

                  186.5 this morning. I got off and on the scale like 5x.

                  Lastnight I did not get to lift heavy things - my family made sure of this - we had a confrontation going on between DS and DH and I get stuck in the middle everytime. I'm at the point where all I want to do is give them boxing gloves and tell them to go outside beat the shit out of each other and get it out of their system.

                  It's a teenage issue of dreams versus real life.

                  I want to IF till about 2 or 3 today which should be obtainable b/c I am not hungry atm.
                  I have a paper due tomorrow and if it deosn't get done tonight I will not be going to the track with DH, b/c he can't guarantee what time we get home at night and the profeesor doesn't accept late work. 5 pages I'm on page 1. I don't think i'll be going to the track Saturday - which is fine with me it's supposed to be hot.

                  Well i was looking at bathing suits today online - gonna buy on before I go on our cruise.

                    Wow, congratulations on the new #!

                    You must be so proud. Great job shifting your bod's systems. It takes a while, but damn, if I can do what you're doing it will be worth the effort. I got you some flers -

                          Yes 8lbs!! I am so stoked

                          We have had a heat wave here on the last couple of days it's cooled down a little today so I believe I will attempt that hike again. I would like to continue the downward trend and continue it while on my cruise It is so liberating to know that I am almost effortlessly losing weight I have been accumulating for the last 8 years.
                          I have been zig zagging back and forth but have continued the downward trend.
                          I haven't run 4 miles every other day or continuously for 45 minutes a day. I haven't gone to the gym and worked my proverbial ass off. I haven't been starving with rice cakes and the occasional 100 calorie bag of crap cracker cookies that make you want more.
                          I can't get over the fact I am seeing the changes in my body - physical changes in my stomach and my back side.

                          I finished my paper and I hope I get a good grade on it. My DSD is taking the same online class and I think she is having difficulties and likes the in classroom settings. Only hting is she won't come and ask for help or sit and study with me b/c she has her head up her BF's ass. kids.

                          I am not perfect by any means. i just wish people would use common sense myself included.
                          I am going to head out to the store for some goods. Maybe come back with a few steaks to throw on the grill tomorrow, Unless we go to the lake. I have to watch what I buy as we have the people coming out to exchange the fridge on Wednesday - so I will have to transport every thing back to the garage fridge. My freezer is almost empty so i think I will just buy things to cook and eat for the next few days. It's a beautiful day I'm going to go enjoy it

                            You go girl! That's fantastique.

                            I know how you feel about how satisfying it is to do it this way. Granted, I did work hard today, but that's not normal. My workouts don't kill me anymore and I get to eat real food. Those 100 calorie crap packs and rice cakes are just demeaning. Ugh. Never again.

                              Oh yes! One of my first rules in losing weight, even pre-primal, was no diet food. No fake food. I wanted to live with real food, and it just stood to reason that if you're eating fake food, you haven't learned how to eat properly.

                              Enjoy the process, CM.

                                Nope no diet food as I sit here and eat my Salmon patties yummers - and salad although the dressing is Ranch from a bottle I was too lazy to make any. I came back from my hike I did 22 regular push ups (11 in a row 2x) REGULAR! NO KNEES! Then I found a platform which holds up a big sign and I was able to do dips. my hike was the 3.6 miles. Very hilly, and jogged some parts of it. Got bit by a Horse fly (bastard).

                                Today was a good day, a day of reflection by myself, doing my homework with no distractions. Now to go fold laundry after I get a nice warm shower. I need it. lol.
