    25 October 2018 Thursday Weigh-in

    Hi all! cruises42 ~ no never done a Journeys cruise so look forward to hearing what you thought of it. Belle ~ nice of you to check in. I saw Kotor for the 1st time in June & thought it beautiful, especially the sail in which we luckily enough did during the day. It was more than warm then, more like hot as Hades!! See you tomorrow morning. I have a chocolate bar sitting beside me should I or shouldn't I?!! ~ Jo ~ 😊

    DWTS Fall 2018, Dresses and more...

    Hi all! I really enjoyed the show last night except for the long pause to find out who was going home!! I liked both dresses although I thought Erin's made her look sort of broad. I liked the romance & vulnerability of some of the dancers too. Maybe there'll be another wedding come out of the show!! I'm leaving in a few days for a 2 week cruise so no DWTS for me. Hope the best ones stick around! ~ Jo ~ 😊

    25 October 2018 Thursday Weigh-in

    Hi all! cruises42 ~ no, I'm not on the Pride. I'm on the new NCL Bliss from San Pedro to Miami through the new Panama Canal. Is your cruise a "Journeys" one? I'm doing one of those in Dec. '19 on Sunshine from Charleston & look forward to being on a Carnival ship once more. DIana ~ yep sure is frustrating. When will I learn to make better food choices!! I will let you know how I like Bliss. I've been on a few big ships but like smaller ones too. Have a nice day. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    25 October 2018 Thursday Weigh-in

    Hi all! I'm a little late checking in but my news isn't good, I'm up 1.2 lbs so almost at the highest I've ever been with a 14 day cruise at the end of the week!! DIana ~ not a bad gain for such a long cruise! shootr ~ those meats look yummy! I'll take that little dark drumstick in the corner please.😉 Belle ~ nice of you to drop in. Bet it's nice & warm in Greece unlike here where it's near freezing & we saw our first snow flakes yesterday! Have a great week. ~ Jo~ 😊

    DWTS Fall 2018, Dresses and more...

    Hi all! Well, I half watched the show as usual & thought Erin's dress strange. Carrie Ann's looked like it might have been nice had we seen more of it. The best part of the show for me is hearing people's stories. The little guy was cute. I hated to see one of my fav's in the bottom 2! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. HI all! FlatlandDave ~ sure you can come in, all are welcome! That's a nice start to your weight loss journey, as they say.😉 Belle ~ I checked the prices for the World cruise & the lanai category, which sounds expensive, is sold out!! I used to get emails from the Captain on the World cruise but think maybe I unsubscribed. Bon Voyage & have a great time! Have a nice week peeps & see you Thursday with hopefully a good report for a change! I'm going to start doing some exercise again & am waitng for my new pedometer to track my steps so maybe I'll use My Fitness Pal again. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi again! Bell ~ my former neighbour who's doing the World cruise on HAL. Wonder where that post went?!

    Conquest - October 7 Quick Review

    HI all! Nice review. Have to agree about HMC, the most beautiful beach I've ever been to. Loved the Conquest too. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. Hi all! shootr ~ that meat does look yummy!! Belle ~ the lady is going solo & DH said it's costing her $60K!! I'd rather take more cruises for that kind of money. Oh well, it'll get her away from the winter here. Have a nice day! I'm looking forward to my sirloin of lamb supper. It was so good the last time we had it & not as expensive as a leg or rack. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  11. HI all! pirate ~ nice review! Sounds like you & your Mom had a nice relaxing, well fed time. ~ Jo ~😊
  12. HI all! I've been MIA, reading but not posting. We had our Thanksgiving earlier this month, I baked & ate, had my cataract surgery so haven't been exercising therefore I'm up 1.6 lbs since the last time I posted. I have my cruise in 2 weeks so wish I could lose 20 lbs in that time period but that'd be wishful thinking!!😉 Jan ~ hope you're feeling better & can enjoy the wedding. The surgery went well & I don't actually recall that part of it because they give you an IV with sedative in it so you're awake but not really in tune. The worst part for me is the drops you have to do before & after. All seems well & I can see clearer now the cataract is gone, sounds like a song title, lol. I went to the hairdresser yesterday & one girl, who was a little heavy now seems to be 1/2 her old self. Some people are so good at losing weight, have such determination, wish I was one of them! Belle ~ have a great cruise! Yikes that's a lot of days on a ship, 14 is about my limit but good for you. Have a great weekend & good week ahead. See you Thursday. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    DWTS Fall 2018, Dresses and more...

    Hi all! Nice to be back! I watched the young people Sunday night & really enjoyed the show. It was nice to see the judges & coaches interact with the kids. I absolutely hated Erin's dress last night, what an awful tight white thing! Enjoyed the show though. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    DWTS Fall 2018, Dresses and more...

    HI all! shipgeeks ~ that's funny!!Hope he finds something suitable before your next cruise.;) Did anybody watch the youngsters last night? I didn't as my company didn't leave until 8:30. Looking forward to DWTS tonight, most memorable night which is often a tearjerker. Another tearjerker returns tonight, Long Lost Family, I love that show but DH has to get a paper towel while watching, while a kleenex is enough for me. Have a great week. ~ Jo ~ :)
  15. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. I can smell my turkey cooking. I did make a couple of desserts but not the apple pie with 2 Caramilk bars & whipping cream in it that DD likes. None of us needs that many calories!! I didn't weigh in this week as I had the cataract surgery Tuesday & am not to bend except to tie my shoes so a good excuse not to get the scale out. Also not to lift anything more than 10 lbs so needed a helping hand with the turkey. The last few days have been rainy here but Tuesday & forward looks like nice weather. I'm going on a bus trip to view the leaves at Algonquin Park, hope they're still on the trees & have changed colour! Have a nice day! ~ Jo ~ :)
