  1. Hi all! Holy crow, what a cluster that turned out to be!! CAN YOU SAY DRAMA?!! I liked the final result though. It's strange not to have a host(ess) but I guess it can work. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. Hi all! Belle ~ Hallowe'en won't be a problem for me this year as I'll be on a ship! Usually we don't have any kids so I buy what I like, either chocolate bars or salty snacks then eat them all! Izena ~ a dietician on a Zoom call this week suggested 1200 calories is the minimum one should have. Are you okay with doing less? Aren't you hungry? I can hardly manage 1200! Jan ~ sorry to hear you're sick. That sounded like a lovely family trip you had other than your DS' fall. How is she doing? Much to my surprise I'm down 0.2 lbs, guess those potato chips were okay to have!😉 Wonder what I would have been down without them?! Have a nice weekend & stay safe. I've booked my pre & post cruise tests so hope it all works out. Fingers crossed!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  3. Hi all! I didn't get to watch the end of the show so just learned who went home. I'll be away from October 30 'til Nov 13, cruising on Carnival Horizon BTB, so will miss a couple of shows. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  4. Hi all! Did anybody watch the show Thursday? Looks like it'll be an interesting season. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  5. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. I had a busy day yesterday so didn't come by. I went to a bird banding place & saw how they capture, weigh, examine, band, then release the birds. They've had 7033 pass through so far, beating the last 5 falls by over 2000 with 20 days to go. At night they capture the little Saw whet owls. NCLgirl2018 ~ welcome! I wish I was at your starting weight, lol. I was 147 for about 20 years but after I retired managed to go up 25 lbs! Izena ~ you've done a great job! Congrats on booking your first solo cruise. I love them & am doing my 28th & 29th at the end of the month. That's out of 46 cruises, so more than 1/2 alone.. Oh, I'm down a little this week, just 0.4 but I'll take it.. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  6. Hi all! jackiel3290 ~ sorry I can't help. I haven't a clue on how to do that. CruisinCrow ~ it was a good show, just didn't like it took 2 nights! I've been liking Carrie Ann's dresses, at least the part we see of them. I was glad of whom went home this week. I don't think it was a good idea to have a couple as partners. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. HI all! I've been having the same problem. Waited over an hour the other day, clerk couldn't help, passed me on, then I had to hang up before connecting. Today I called & picked the book a new cruise option & got through quite quickly. Maybe give that a try. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi all! Well the time has come! This Thursday is what we've been waiting for. Sure hope it's a great season. See you here soon. Stay safe, wonder if there'll be masks! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  9. Hi all! Belle ~ nice start to the thread. The year is passing by quickly. I just checked my calendar & I'm down almost 4 pounds from the beginning of the year with weekly increases & decreases. It's not much but a step in the right direction. I went up to my sister's cottage again then stopped at a restaurant on the way home so am up 0.6 lbs. The leaves are starting to turn here so the drive was pretty & lots of birds were at her feeder, 10 varieties in all. Of course the food was good as usual. Our Thanksgiving is this weekend so had to grocery shop on the way home to get the turkey & trimmings. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. HI all! quercus ~ good to see you're back! I think we met on the Epic in the Med years ago. Epic was my last cruise before the pandemic Feb 2020, also from San Juan. You sure have a great itinerary! I think Aruba is good for a beach day or St Lucia or even Grenada! 4 weeks from today I should be sailing away on Carnival Horizon so look forward to that. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  11. Hi all! Belle ~ nice start to the thread, thanks. It's pretty chilly up here, wearing sweaters in the house & socks again. Jan ~ sounds like some fun times you've had & will have. Yikes that's a lot of pizza!! I'll be the same age as your big sister, in December. Oh, btw I'm up 0.2 lbs so not too bad a gain for the butter tarts I ate & maybe some popcorn.😉 My cruise is coming up in a month & getting the tests is playing on my mind. A couple from Church are leaving Sunday for a Med cruise so I'm going to try to find out how the testing in the city an hour away went, then maybe do that too. Have a nice day. I'm off to take my car in for the 2nd time this week!!$$$ Stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. HI all! Yes, I was thinking those outfits were not suitable attire for a cruise, although the 2nd one would insure social distancing!! She still looks heavier than I remember her from America'sTop Model. Did it seem to any of you that something black was hanging down from the back of Kenya's outfit? I was glad the right person was sent home & that the athlete stayed, I really like him. Have a nice day & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  13. Hi all! Belle ~ I yelled for joy! Like Jan I'm down a pound, only 15.2 more to go!! To answer a question from the previous thread DH lost his weight in 2 days of not eating lunch or supper, so was happy about that. I OTOH have never missed a meal so don't think that's the route I'd take. Have a nice day & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  14. Hi all! clo ~ we have been following DWTS here for years, originally talking about Erin's gowns & if they'd be suitable for a cruise. mafig ~ yes, Tyra takes some getting used to! I didn't think either of her gowns suitable for cruising.
  15. Hi all! DWTS started last night so I was wondering if anybody's watching this season. As usual I don't know many of the "stars" but it does look like an interesting season with some combos we've never see before. Was worried that Carrie Ann would have a wardrobe malfunction last night!! Tyra was quite glittery! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  16. Hi all! Belle ~ nice start to the thread. optimusprime82 ~ oh dear sorry to hear of such a young person dying from Covid. The ones I've known of were in nursing homes. Izena ~ neat being in the 120's!! I can't remember when I was that light. Most recently, in 2012 after surgery, I was 135 about 30 lbs less than I am now. Way back in the 1960's I was 97 lbs after getting my appendix out. Maybe I need another surgery, lol! Anyhow bad news this week, up 0.8 lbs. DH was up 9 lbs from where he wants to be & is only eating breakfast & drinking coffee these last 2 days.I OTOH will be having a big lunch & supper of leftovers! Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  17. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. Looks like some losses, some gains, as usual. You seem to pretty much stay the same. I was happy to be a loser this Thursday, down 1.4 pounds. Susan & Belle, you sure have a lot of cruises booked, WTG. I have 9 booked plus 2 back ups in case one of the others cancels, like just happened twice this week!! I sure hope cruising is going to get easier than it is at the moment! Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  18. Hi all! Belle ~ I don't think the thread is falling apart either. I too come in & check up what people have to say but don't always feel like posting. Jan ~ oh that's so sweet, your description of your newest GS. I'm having a disappointing day! It started out with no power for 3 hours then I got an email from my TA that the Bliss has been redeployed in 2023 so my TA replacing the one cancelled in April of this year has also been cancelled!! Not big things in the scheme of things eg the destruction in LA etc but offputting. I sure hope I haven't eaten too much this week for weigh in tomorrow!! Have a nice day & stay safe.. ~ Jo ~😊
  19. Hi again, imluvncruzn ~ thanks so much for posting the picture of the Jellyfish. I hope to see a bunch of them since they're not dangerous.
  20. Hi all! imluvncruzn ~ thanks for such an informative report. I look forward to doing this cruise in Nov & will look for those moon jellyfish now I know they're not harmful. Have a nice day & stay safe. ~ Jo ~😊
  21. Hi all! Ombud ~ I have a gold card too. I did the TA on Carnival Vista in 2016 & really liked it. Horizon is newer but similar so should be great. I really like Carnival & am sorry I waited so long to try them, having listened to the badmouthing about them being party ships. I don't hang around bars or the pool so if there is anything shady going on I don't see it. We have hardly any experience with buying cars lately as ours are from 2001 & 2004. DH keeps them going just like he does our appliances. Everything we have is so old!!! Have a nice day & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  22. Hi all! Jamman54 ~ so happy to see you & Patti are cruising again & on Horizon! I'm booked on it BTB end of October after MSC cancelled their cruises to Canadians yesterday. Sure hope things improve with testing before then!🤞 Have a great cruise & thanks so much. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  23. HI all! Ombud ~ no I don't have to test for MSC as they have cancelled cruises for Canadians!!! I'm on hold for ages with Carnival trying to book my same cabin using some of the deposit I got back from cancelling the SUnrise cruise. It'll be neat doing a BTB with 2 different itineraries which of course have changed from the originals. No Cozumel anymore so have to cancel that excursion, now no need for FTTF so will cancel that too if I ever get through!! The tests are a big worry. I need the PCR test for the flight home. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. Please couldn't this just be over !!!!! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  24. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. Hope you had a nice birthday. Was there cake? Alabaster Cruiser ~ hope all goes well for your cruise & you have a great time.🤞 Izena ~ great loss, I think I know where some of it went, lol! After that lovely time with my sibs I'm up 1.4 lbs. MIght have been those ooey, gooey buttertarts! Yesterday I went to a newly opened British store & noticed all the things I bought have pastry, like sausage rolls, Cornish pasties & steak & kidney pie. Maybe I'll just eat the fillings.😉 Jan ~ food & company go together! It's really cooled down here, only 50 so far! Guess summer's over. Have a nice day & stay safe. I got a worrisome email from my TA about my MSC cruise, test, insurance etc. Might have to look for an alternative to it if they do cancel Canadians. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  25. HI all! Belle ~ wishing you many happy healthy returns of the day! Happy birthday.🎂 I'm a little scared for tomorrow's weigh in as I was at our annual siblings' day at my sister's cottage. She's a good cook & baker so there may have been some brownies & butter tarts consumed. See you tomorrow. Stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
