Lose Before You CruiseA place for cruisers to share their stories of how to lose weight before a cruise. Virtual snacks allowed, but only in small quantities.
Well, I'm back after almost a month I think. Down .4 lb to 198.6 so that is a good thing.
Really cute verse, Belle. I don't know how you keep coming up with them!
I spent most of Nov in Nova Scotia. My Mom passed away on the 15th. I stayed to help my Dad with some stuff and came home on Sat Dec 1. I think I was down more while I was there, but I was definitely not eating enough.
Now I just have to get this place cleaned up and ready for Christmas and pack for our trip to Kenya on the 27th.
Treasure your Moms while you still have them. Ask her all those questions you've been planning to ask before its too late. Who is in that old picture with her and where she got the pretty pink dishes. So many things I had planned to ask her someday and now the information is gone forever. So call her today just to say hello for me because I can't......

Mo - my condolences on your loss. Even though it can be a blessing to know that they are now at peace it is never easy. The 20th of December will be the anniversary of my mom's passing ... I now have to get by that date before I can enjoy the Christmas season. Although, my mom's final Christmas gift to all her kids was to leave after almost 20 years of Alzheimers ... terrible for her, horrible for her kids. All her siblings ended up with it, some by the time they were in their early 50's .... gotta love genetics!
I am down 1/2# this week ... I'm really surprised as DH & I went to the coast over the weekend and had wonderful food and wine. It was a nice break (although we just got 1 1/2 feet of snow ... hate the white stuff!).
I have now lost a total of 48 1/2# which is about 23.5% of my body weight. I have 8# to go to get to my goal. (although the goal might end up changing .. we will see).
Thanks for the wonderful poem Belle. To all have a wonderful day. Jan
