Another Pound Down

Saturday, August 28, 2010

It was hot again and the humidity is rising. Hubby and I went for 3 walks today. We saw 3 turtles - one was "S" who was eating strawberries I put out for them. The other 2 were mating in the compost bin. It's a popular hang out for the locals. LOL. We saw 3 lizards. One was a small one and it was with a larger one like they were mother and child. We saw our young buck who has one horn bigger than the other. I saw squirrel baiter but he was not on the feeder for a change. The crows are never ready at feeding time but come later and follow me around griping. We marked several trees that need cut down.

Rico Suave wanted out to sleep with hubby. They nap together. Blocker wanted out too and she knew Rico was under the covers but could not figure out how to get under there. LOL. We don't want any more babies so we have to keep them apart.

I have been using scented candles a lot lately. I really love them.

I lost another pound. My friend the dietitian finally got around to analzing my data and body fat analysis, BMI, weight, measurements, etc. and she says my goal weight should be 145 right now. That sounds high to me but she says a lot of what I have is lose skin and muscle. Not that much fat.

I did some more decluttering today.

I heard from Sherry again today. I feel relieved to hear from her.

    So happy for you with weightloss. I'm reducing calories. You only have less than 20lbs to goal! That's so excellent! I love candles and am glad you heard from Sherry. I love your blogs, walks, nature and animal descriptions.

    Yey for one more pound! That is so awesome! I am sorry it's so hot there, it is amazing that you took 3 walks in the heat. Good for you! Thank God it has cooled off here and was only in the 60's today, I am actually wearing a sweater. What kind of turtles do you have there? I have a greek tortoise for a pet and I just love watching him eat. thanks for your kind words on my blog, you are always so nice! emoticon

    What you have to lose is skin and muscle?? I wouldn't think that muscle loss would be a good goal! Skin, I totally understand. I have a lot of excess folds that are just never going away.

    I don't really know Sherry, or I'd offer sympathy myself. I'm sure you've let her know that her loss has touched many, many of us.

    For some reason I've been very into scents lately. I don't mean perfumes or essential oils or even candles (though I love scented candles). I'll be walking through the supermarket and the scent of the cleaners will hit me and send me off into a trance. Or I'll be out for a walk and the scent of fall coming on will hit me and shoot me off into a memory. I love this!

    Congrats on losing another pound. They are so easily found yet take SO much effort to lose.

    I love scented candles, too. They can really help me relax when I am totally stressed.
    I wish someone would make one that smells like bread baking, though. To me, that is the most wonderful scent in the universe!
    I've been decluttering, too. Today I took 2 large bags of clothing, household items and glassware to the Good Will.
    Keep up the good work!

    Sounds like a great day. Love the "local hangout" line.

    I did post my condolences for Sherry's Son. Bless her heart. What a handsome kid!
    How tough for her. I wouldn't know how to act or what to do next.

    Take care and have a emoticon day. It is hot and humid here too. Jason, Carrie and the kids have left to go back to Kansas. DH gave Jason his Ford PU so spent most of the week getting it ready for Jason. It looked great and I almost hated to see it go. Jason was thrilled to get it as so many times he needs to haul something and has to borrow a truck.

    It is quiet here now that everyone has left. Carrie & Alex will be back on Wednesday for our annual trip to Amish Country - Arthur and Arcola Illinois. We will be gone from Thursday until Saturday. I am hoping the dentist can patch my tooth up enough for the trip. I lost a filling and then chomped down on it and broke the tooth. Lucky me, I was able to get into the dentist early Tuesday Morning. We shall see what he says. Hope he can fix it.

    Hugs, Sunny

    Congratulations with your weight loss this week. I try to get 10,000 steps a day but it's a struggle and when I see your total steps it make me feel like a wimp.

    Ooh I want a dietitian friend to look my numbers! It's strange when u get down pretty close to the number and you think, really this is where I should be? But I think 145 is pretty darn good place to stay comfortably if you can. I have a friend who is 135 and her collar bones really poke out in photos. That's my own goal number but I donno looks kinda skinny.
