Fun Sunday

Woke up late ---read the Sunday paper---my husband and I read through recipes to find an awesome and fancy appetizer we could take to the BBQ we are going to at 4:00--Lot's of good food and this couple have a really nice wine cellar mmmmmm! We're making Gougeres--bite size cheesey little puffs.
But first I just woke the boy up and the 3 of us are going to go swim laps for an hour or so.
I'm pretty happy---this morning I was at my lowest 207.5 ---finally! I have actually been eating more calories for the last week or so (1000 to 1200) could that be why? weird!!

Need to post

I started to complain about no restriction ---then chose not to. I find it hard to find things to blog about---actually I give much better phone or one on one. I went swimming this morning --it is beautiful here. Lot's of gardening to be done --I have many tropicals and they grow fast.
Next Thursday my husband and I are going wine tasting with 2 other couples for 4 days. We are staying in this great little hotel on the beach in Pismo Beach, Ca. and commuting to Paso Robles, for wine tasting . We are going to rent a van so we can all ride together and have room to bring home our cases of wine. FUN!! So somehow I need to figure out how to lose a few pounds so I am ahead of the game for next week. Can't wait until I don't have to diet any longer. My next fill is June 14 and I really haven't lost any weight for 2 1/2 months ---But on the up side I haven't gained any either. I do feel like my clothes and attitude are better ;-)
Have a great Memorial weekend everyone!

I'm almost finished doing laundry,watering and packing. We are leaving early tomorrow morning on an 8hr drive to SF to bring our son home from college. We plan on spending a day or 2 with our friends in Half Moon Bay ...FUN!! Took our dog to stay at my Mother's and she filled the car with (dishes,towels,microwave.....and you name it) for our sons off campus apartment. He will be moving into it in Aug.
Wish I had some restriction --it will be hard to be in control under these circumstances.
Have a great weekend everyone----and as Sandy said"a toast to the Queen"

No Dieting !!!

It is really hard to maintain or lose weight when you have no restriction. As much as I really don't want to ever be on another diet ---I am always counting calories and exercising and journaling ---with no LOSE!! Just like before!! My Dr makes you wait 7-8 weeks between fills and my first one 3 weeks ago didn't help at all.
A funny thing happened during my last fill ---I asked the PA to explain --SLIDERS--to me and she asked if I was talking about small hamburgers.
Kinda of indicative of this surgery center.
Well it's a beautiful day here in paradise --I've already been swimming and my garden is calling. My paramedic/firefighter son is coming in from Northern CA. this afternoon to visit for a few days---FUN!!
Next week we're driving to San Francisco to bring #2 son home from college for the summer.
Sounds like lots of opportunities to eat and drink things I shouldn't.

San Francisco

My DH and I had a great time. We stayed at a charming, retro style, hotel near Union Square and spent most of our time with our son -WALKING- around, shopping , looking at art, learning the transportation system(awesome)and eating amazing food. I didn't consume massive amounts--but definitely my share -plus some. A couple of Grey Goose martini's and a glass of wine or two made their way in also. Mmmm-- Oh yea----We also helped our son rent his first off campus apt with 2 other friends. I think it will work out -- for everyone.
I am not going to weigh myself until tomorrow---give myself a day to get on track and drink my water.
Oh BTW I still don't feel like I have any restriction and it has been a week since my first fill --last Monday! DANG!!
