    6 December 2018 Thursday Weigh-in

    HI all! Put me in with the gainers, I'm up 0.6 which is disappointing as I thought by cutting out eating between meals I'd be down. OTOH I did have a turkey dinner & other meals out. Guess I should get back to doing some exercise. On a more cheerful note I see some of us have NCL cruises in our signatures, to look forward to. I just booked the Epic again (5th time) for Feb. 2020 & will be on Pearl in April '19 then Jade in Oct '19. Have a nice weekend & fingers crossed for better results next Thursday. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    Bliss / Live / Solo - Dec-01-08-2018...

    Hi all! sid_1969 ~ still following along & loving your review. Hope you feel better soon! The internet wasn't that great on the Nov 3 Bliss cruise either & some must have complained as I got a $75 credit without even asking! I enjoyed my 14 days on Bliss & would sail on it again if the right itinerary was offered. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    Bliss / Live / Solo - Dec-01-08-2018...

    Hi all! I'm following & just got off the Nov 3 Panama Canal Bliss cruise so am interested in hearing your thoughts on it. I'm not a drinker but those drinks do look interesting & hot!! Have a great time on Bliss, are you in a studio cabin? ~ Jo ~ 😊

    Hi all! Wow, some really good losses people, way to go!! I am down 0.2 lbs, nothing to brag about but not a gain! I would like to lose the 20 lbs I've gained since I retired 11 years ago but don't seem to have the drive yet! Some of you are doing great on the "challenge".👍

    HI all! Dave ~ I know where that 1.8 lbs went, lol!! Not a bad gain for a 2 week cruise I think! I had a lovely time on the Bliss Panama Canal cruise. I ate pretty much what I wanted, took the stairs but mostly down & only drank the one free bottle of wine I got, during the whole time. The weather was HOT so that may have helped keep the gain down too. Jan ~ nice going losing a pound!👍 Happy Thanksgiving!🦃 We in North America have so much to be thankful for! ~ Jo ~ 😊

    DWTS Fall 2018, Dresses and more...

    Hi all! I didn't like either of the dresses, Erin looks so wide, could she be pregnant?! Had seen a headline, maybe on USA Today saying could he win, but didn't pay attention. They need to do something about the scoring, sure it's great to be popular but it is a dance competition not a popularity contest!! See you next season! Happy Thanksgiving. ~ Jo ~ 😊

    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 ~ 😊

    Hi all! Bob ~ thanks for posting about your cruise. I look forward to reading it when I get back from my 14 days on the Bliss. Have a great time. Bon voyage to you, Holli & Ann. ~ 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 ~ 😊

    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 ~ 😊
  14. 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 ~ 😊
  15. Hi again! Bell ~ my former neighbour who's doing the World cruise on HAL. Wonder where that post went?!
