HAPPY FRIYAAAAAAAY! I hope you all have great weekend plans. Nothing much for me, except that I am still on a cleaning binge and want to keep it going. I have huge piles of clothes, shoes, sheets and towels to donate somewhere but I haven't decided where to bring it, yet.

Last night was the open house for the house we are selling and Grim and I hid in the car down the street see how many people came. There were about 15 groups, we think, and I would like to revise the answer to my QOTD from yesterday... we had so much fun watching everyone come in and making up stories about who they are. It was a fun little adventure :) Anyway, we already have one offer, well above asking. Yay!

Photo Friday Theme: How it Started...How it's Going.

1.) How it Started... How it's Going: Weight loss!

2.) How it Started... How it's Going: Cat ownership (haha!).

3.) How it Started... How it's Going: Our first date ... 4+ years later!

QOTD: Who is your favorite comedian? I really love Jimmy Kimmel and John Oliver's show tv shows! I also like Conan O'Brien's podcast and Jerry Seinfeld still makes me laugh on his show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee :)

Yesterday was better with food. I hid the candy, which really helped! I also found a ZERO point chicken recipe for the instant pot which I made. The points you see below are from the low carb tortilla and light sour cream I am adding :)

  • 4'11"
  • High Weight before LapBand: 200 (2008)

Yesterday was a very long and hard day, and I didn't really want to get up early today. But some poor kid was abducted and we got several Amber alerts morning, so I went ahead and got up. Not sure how that will work though...argh! Update: signed back out again after an hour and going to try to sleep a bit more.

At our appointment yesterday, my neuro confirmed that I need a redo of my left occipital nerve branches and that I still have a couple of problems with some of the vertebrae. Just one step at a time for the moment.

Food choices were pretty rotten yesterday and no walks, but trying to remind myself that today is a new day and there are new choices to be made.

Specific choices aren't known, but there will be Carbmaster yogurt, berries, slivered almonds, a TJ's salmon burger, a protein shake and some veg-bean soup.

Here's to good choices folks!!

Good morning all and happy Friday at last!!! No big plans for me this weekend except for getting things done around the house and running some errands that I did not get done last weekend. My accountability was pretty good yesterday. No extra snacking which is always a plus for me! Hopefully I can finish out the week strong.

QOTD: not sure I have a favorite. I grew up watching John Candy, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Bill Murray etc.....the list goes on. So I can't pick just one. Lol

B: coffee w/Splenda & sf creamer x 2

B2: protein shake

L: 2 oz low sodium turkey breast and a hard boiled egg

D: 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breast & veggies

S: maybe an apple ?

I don't have many before and after pics, so I just chose me dressed up for Halloween when I was 2 or 3 and then me today. Lol. Haven't dressed up for Halloween as an adult so don't have any pics like that. Lol

Surgery: RNY on 1/23/19
