  1. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. SO hard to say no to food, glorious food but I'm thinking about cutting out between meal snacking, just thinking at this time, but wondering how much of a difference it'd make in a week. Anyhow the fact is I'm the same as last week, still a touch below 170 so that's good, but a long way from 150! Have a good week & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. HI all! Belle ~ it's okay to blow off steam here. I think we all feel the same, not liking the cold, the dark, staying away from family. I just got the email that my Carnival cruise in Feb is cancelled which is fine but now I have to know what NCL is doing for the cruise I booked for the week before! Hopefully they cancel it too & I can do something about my airfare. This is the 3rd cruise I didn't get to go on which is nothing compared to what some are going through during this pandemic!! You all have Thanksgiving coming up next week & still have l
  3. HI all! Yes, that's what I thought too but I like Nelly. I liked the way the judges entered this week so you could see their outfits. The season has gone by quickly.
  4. Hi all! Diana ~ thanks for starting the thread. Hope Belle's having a nice time. I'm up 0.2 so not too bad. One of these days I'll have to get serious about reducing my caloric intake & lose some weight! Hope everybody's keeping safe & well. Our cases are up here, higher than ever unfortunately! ~ Jo ~😊
  5. Hi again, DIana ~ I think the better results are from taking Vitamin D, calcium in the form of Tums & a pill I take once a month, on the same day each time. Jan ~ yikes, sciatica on both sides, how painful!! I think I have it on my right side. It starts in my right butt cheek & goes right down to my toes, sometimes making them tingly. Right now it hurts around my knee. Glad to hear it's not permanent! Hope you feel better soon! Have a nice evening. Sure don't like it starting to get dark so early! I missed a beautiful sunset the other night 'cause it
  6. Hi all! Yikes what a change in this forum! Belle ~ thanks for the poem & hope you're feeling better soon. Looks like most are on a downward trend. Me too, but only 0.4 lbs. I had good news from my bone density scan, results better than 3 or even 6 years ago. The weather here has warmed a bit for a few days, so that's nice. I wonder what the new cruising rules are going to mean to us. Will we be able to cruise in February, that's my hope? Have a nice day & stay safe. I have 4 Zooms to do today, 1st one soon "N
  7. Hi all! Cruisin Crow ~I 'm still watching & actually enjoying it without all the filler of entertainers & cast dancers. YIkes those were some outfits Tyra was wearing!! I thought Carrie Ann looked nice. Was sorry to see the couple who left. I wonder if they are a couple. Anyhow just my thoughts on Monday's show. Hope to see some chatting here. Stay safe! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread, nice message.Treats are what's doing me in! I looked at my MFP numbers yesterday & my snacks were equal in calories to my breakfast & lunch combined!! Sorry I didn't check in last week, no real reason. I am the same weight I was 2 weeks ago. Jan ~ sorry you're feeling so sad about the holidays. It must be hard when you're used to seeing your family. WIth mine being 3 hours drive away & the other an almost 3 hour flight, I hardly get to see them so am used to holidays alone, turkey for 2 as I like to c
  9. HI all! I enjoyed the show but didn't like the end result. I wanted Peta & partner to stay.. I loved Peta's pink dress & Monica's blue dress. I didn't like Carrie Ann's look, where did her neck go?!! Anyhow it is what it is. Just a couple more days 'til the next show. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. Hi all! Belle ~ nice opening thoughts. Good on you losing a pound.. Strange times when I dream about going into a store & realize I don't have my mask on!! I'm down 0.2 so back in the highest 160's. I'm listening to Valerie Bertinelli's book so will maybe learn something from that. I love listening to books, especially when read by the author theirself. Community Care for Seniors here is offering a Zoom program of a different kind of exercise every day eg pilates, chair yoga, mildly spicy moves so I've been doing some of them instea
  11. Hi all! Yes, I watched too. I was almost begging for a costume change out of that green outfit!! If Tyra didn't make such a grand entrance it'd be less rushed at the end! I like this season that so far there doesn't seem to be a really poor "star" who's hanging in by a popularity vote & really enjoy the music. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. HI all! I see Christian has a new show on Bravo called "So Siriano" but I don't get that channel through my provider.😢 Sounds like it is a talk show. Wish "Project Runway" would come back. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  13. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. I'm up the 0.4 Iost last week so back to 170. I sure have to get serious soon!! My snacks are what's hurting me & my lack of discipline. I'm typing this while listening to a Zoom presentation. I have access to at least 2 Zooms a day, one of which is an hour of exercise, so nice when I can fit it in. Looking forward to this aft when I'll talk to a cousin I haven't seen or heard from in maybe 60 years!! Her DM passed away in April apparently from Covid. Rose ~ staying the same is good. I hear you
  14. Hi all! Holy crow, what a show last night!! Why is Tyra wearing such ugly gowns that make her look so wide?! I thought Derek was to dance last night but didn't see that happen. I'll be interested in hearing what you all thought about last night's show. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  15. HI all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. Have a great time with your son. I see some nice losses this month! WTG! I lost 0.4 lbs & 2 lbs for the month. I've got to get serious as it should be more like 2 lbs a week!! Oh well, new month, another chance for a new beginning! Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
