3-28-19 Thursday Weigh-In Last of March...Then April Is Around The Corner

Recommended Posts

 

Why do cruise days go by so fast

They should last and last

 

You wait and wait for cruise day to sail away

Then they say...time to get off to day

 

Many of you have cruises coming up how nice

Watch the food intake and drink water with ice.......................Yeah Right!

 

Think most of you did really well while I was on the sea

Many loss's and not to many gains I see

 

Now April will be coming soon you know

Another month to eat less and say no

 

So wake up and get on the scale and smile

Then you know the drill...walk a mile

Had a nice cruise to and in Hawaii and back.

Knew a few of the crew and passengers which is nice.

 

Weather was nice in Hawaii, not as warm as usual. They

say coolest it's been at this time of the year. In the 70's should be 80's.

 

Saw lot's of whales in Maui was the right month for this. Love seeing them. Amazing!

 

Did pretty good on eating and course you walk a lot just getting around the ship,

one end to the other. I believe I Stayed the Same. No gain. I'm Happy!

 

Now have to get in the losing mode. Been in a holding pattern to long!

Belle glad you enjoyed your cruise ... We went last March and had a wonderful time ... but as you say it goes way too fast.  I did get to see "spouts" ... but never saw a whale ... I want to go back to see one.    (PS - nice you didn't gain any weight!)

 

I having been in a holding pattern for the past month, but finally had a real loss this week ... I am down 2# (total since this newest journey is 26#) ... I would love to "hit" a 9 as the end number by the time our cruise arrives in two weeks (I'd have to lose another 2.6# to get there - not going to count on it).

 

It is difficult not to get discouraged with getting healthy, but will keep trying.  

 

Hope everyone else had/has a good week.  Jan

Belle, welcome back. Glad you had a nice time. Warmer weather in Hawaii would have been nicer. 

 

I stayed the same. Ok I suppose. 

 

I had a realization yesterday.....somehow I thought our cruise was in 5 weeks...no, it's in 3 weeks. Closer than I thought. Still trying to lose a couple more before then.

 

Jan, great loss for the week. And great total. Know you are so proud of yourself. 

 

Have a good day everyone. Diana

Jan good loss. Your doing good. Surprised you didn't see whales in March

in Maui, we took a whale watching tour which was nice, but saw just as many from the ship.

But on the tour saw them closer.

 

Diana nice you didn't have a gain before your cruise. Since it's closer then you think.

It was still nice but wish it was warmer as you know when sailing it's cooler with the wind.

 

Since I've been home two days been having rain everyday so wish I had the 70's now.

Yes it was nice I didn't have a gain. Thinks it's all the walking on the ship plus on land.

Haven't been walking at home, so much rain and cold this winter.

 

Even through I just got off a cruise I'm jealous that you two get to go so soon! Know you

both will have a great time.  Are you going to the Caribbean for warm weather? 

I forgot where you both were going.

I have to share what happened today ... So, I'm going to copy and paste what I posted today on my facebook page ....

 

I am so glad that tax season is almost over ... I am completely insane!!!

Went to get hearing aids today .. and took in a envelope with all the information on my last hearing tests. Unfortunately that isn't what was in the packet ... I gave the hearing Dr a whole bunch of pictures of my colonoscopy .... I was so embarrassed ... but we ended up having a good talk about his last colonoscopy !!!!

 

Hope you had a chance to laugh ... sometimes life just is very interesting!!!

Jan, funny. oops!

 

Belle, hubby and I are doing a B2B: 7 day eastern carribean then 15 day Transatlantic ending in Barcelona. We're then flying from BN to Prague for a few days then come home.

 

Really looking forward to warm weather. Lately it is rainy and cold. Of course once our summer heat settles in (100+ daily June-mid-Sept.) I'll be wishing for winter again..........

Jan so funny. See that's what you needed a "laugh break" from all the taxes!:classic_laugh:

 

Diana what a great cruise. Your like me, we like longer cruises. Also I forgot to

thank you for starting the Weigh-Ins each Thursday I was Gone.

 

A Question?  Where is everyone? Where have you gone? Has winter got you down?

Spring is suppose to be here, Summer soon. COME BACK EVERYONE!

HI, all  off of radio silence now.. Had a little bout of depression and some tragic flooding here in Nebraska.

 

Today we leave for our cruise on the Freedom and I managed though all the stress to end up 15lbs lighter on my goal for my health and not to be that " fat old guy" in the speedos ( no one wants to see that! )..   Hugs and I will check back in when we get to Galveston later today.

Dave, glad you checked in. Have a great cruise. And congrats on the weight loss. Fabulous number. 

 

Belle, I'm always happy to start the threads while you're having fun.

 

I wish more people would come into our thread. I miss the folks we've ad along the way.

Dave Bon Voyage!     Enjoy and congrats on weight loss before cruise.

 

I'll have tears as each of you leave on your cruises!:classic_sad: Because I'm not on the cruise too!:classic_laugh:

 

Everyone be sure you check your air flights before you leave. Got to the airport for my flight

to the cruise, it was cancelled. Glad went day before, had to fly to another airport Then

couldn't get transportation to hotel far away. Daughter got me Lift. Mercedes car and driver.

Of course more money than a shuttle.  Least stress was gone, could make my cruise.

Then just had to worry about getting home. With planes being grounded out there.

But everything was fine and made my flight home. Cruise let me call and check for sure, free.

 

Internet on ship was not working right so I couldn't check and that's why I didn't write while

I was gone. Everything else was fine except didn't do to well in the casino.

Hey Everyone, really late to the party this week.. Am up another lb from last week that's 2lbs in 2 weeks in the wrong direction.. 3 birthdays in the family this week, 2 of them grandkids.. The worst part was I took a few days off after mom fell again and took a few days for the medical insurance to ok her going from hospital to a rehab facility. She's 85 and lives alone so hope only after a few weeks she can be back home again.. Ate fast food the 3 days she was in the hospital and that didn't help as well as not going to the gym... Need to get motivated this week.. Belle glad you enjoyed your cruise to Hawaii..  Hope everyone has a good week. Take care all, Rob

Rob so sorry about your mother. Hope she's back in her home soon, know she will be

happier there.

 

You will get the gain off soon I bet. You have been doing good. You just had a "bump" in

the road!

Hi everyone,

 

Was reading something about walking today. Experts say in order for walking to be considered exercise you need to walk 100 steps per minute. Hmm, will have to take a walk today and see how fast I go..........

 

Have a good day, Diana

Diana It might be true but I think any walking of any kind......Slow, Fast, Short or Long 

is good for you! Your moving and that has to be good. I need to do more of it. I do a

lot of walking on cruises. I know I just have to book more cruises so I can walk more!:classic_biggrin:

 

How's everyone doing this week. Walking? Going to the Gym? Eating less?

Hi Belle,

 

Well, I agree with you, any walking is good. Hubby and I went to the gym this morning. Short workout before he went to work. I did the tread mill for 20 minutes and eliptical for 10.

 

Have a good day. 

 

Diana

Sorry, I am super late getting things posted this week has been a crazy week here. At last weigh-in, I had gained a pound but that was not a surprise to me but it's a bummer anyway. But on a whole, I am down 16# since January so I am happy and grateful for that. Spent all yesterday at a farm machinery auction got a nice red face now, lol. Had fun though 😉 

Rob so sorry to hear about your mom, hope things are looking better.

Diana & Belle, I love going for walks but I don't have a clue how fast I am walking. I think when you are moving it is good for you. I even think the little things help out, like parking farther away at the store, taking stairs, etc. I will make myself walk up and down our stairs 3 or 4x in a row, at least a couple of times during the day if I am hanging out at home.
