  1. Belle, thanks as always for getting us started. pacruise, I'm so sorry about your cousin. I hope your dad is ok. And also your DD. Jan, enjoy your DD's birthday dinner. Diana, staying the same after eating fast food is great. I always gain. Jo, prayers that you are negative. Keep us posted. Ombud, fingers crossed for a loss. I am down 3 lbs. I think I was retaining water before because that is a big loss for me. Have a great weekend, everyone. Rose
  2. Hi, all. Congrats on the losses pacruise and Robin Congrats on maintaining Belle and Diana. Melmar, Jan and Jo, I am with you. I am up 1.8 this week. Rose
  3. Belle, we did not get too much rain. I am in the Islip area of Long Island and we got the least amount of rain. I, too, feel like I let my housecleaning slip some. Yesterday, I enlisted DH to help me roll up our area rugs and move furniture so I could clean the floors. I felt so much better when it was done. Next day that he has free we have to do the bedrooms and his office. Good times to look forward to. LOL
  4. Hello, everyone. I am sorry that I've been MIA for a while. With all the rioting and looting and protesting in the city, I've been somewhat overwhelmed. Some things have gotten quieter now. As I have said before, my son is a detective with the NYPD. It is very upsetting to have all the cops tainted by what some really bad cops have done. My son is a good cop and a good man. He would never choke another human being to death. So, it angers me that people are now blaming all cops for the actions of a few. On the other side of all this, I am a white woman but I have a black teenage grandson. It terrifies me to the depths of my soul to think of him growing up in this world with all the hatred, anger and bigotry. Anyway, I really felt like I needed a time out. I have not done well with my weight, either. I am five pounds over my final goal weight. I need to move on and get myself back on track. Thanks for letting me vent. Rose
  5. Belle, thanks for the poem. And, thanks for your encouraging words on my weight loss journey. You truly are the glue that holds us all together. Great losses Mel, Jo, Mama and Belle. Good job staying the same Diana and MaiTai. Sorry for the gain Jan and pacruise. I am down a few ounces. Still a few pounds away from my final goal weight. Long Island is now in Phase 1 of our reopening. My daughter starts back to work next week. I am hoping that my DH can continue to work from home. He is retiring in December and he can hardly wait. Stay healthy everyone. Rose
  6. Hi, all. Sorry I'm late checking in. My DH works from home now so he's on my computer all day. I am up 2lbs. That makes me 2.4 lbs away from my final goal weight. Being home all day is making it harder to not eat snacks. I have not left my house in two months. I even get my groceries delivered or my daughter picks them up for me. Belle, I can understand your worry for your daughter. I am in the same place with my son. To all of you who are essential workers, thank you for going out to work each day and putting yourselves out there so we can stay home safely. Take care of yourselves and be safe. Rose
  7. Thanks for the poem, Belle. Diana, melmar, Irmo, congrats on the losses. Jo and pacruise, I am with you. I am up 1lb. I don't mind staying home either. I miss my kids and grandkids, but feel so much safer at home. I am in a higher risk category so I prefer to just stay safely in my house. Rose
  8. Good morning, everyone. I hope that everyone is doing well and staying safe. I am down 1lb and now have .4 to go to get back to my final goal weight. Congratulations to all the losers. You are all doing so well keeping busy. I find that the longer I am home, the lazier I get. I need to start on some projects or I am going to lose my mind. Have a great weekend. Rose
  9. Hi, Belle. Sorry I haven't been able to come on before this. With DH working from home, my computer is tied up all day. We are all fine. DH and I haven't been out of the house in so long. Only to walk around our own yard. We won't even walk around our neighborhood because our town is one of the hardest hit on Long Island. We are worried about who we might come in to contact with. My daughter still does all my grocery shopping for me and I am trying to do as much as possible online. I, too, am sad about my three cancelled cruises. I am hoping that things will get back to normal enough so that we can cruise again next summer. We may not cruise again until there is a vaccine available. We shall see. We cancelled our big family cruise for this summer. It was our first back-to-back and was to celebrate three milestone birthdays in the family. We are going to try to plan it for 2022, although the birthdays will have passed. Everyone stay safe and stay healthy. Rose
  10. Belle, thanks as always for the poem. You have a great imagination. Diana, pacruise and Belle, congrats on the losses. Jo, sorry you're up. But not a lot, so that is good. Jan, fingers crossed for a loss. I stayed the same. I don't know why. I am making healthy choices and not overeating. I am 1.4 lbs away from getting back to my final goal weight. Everyone have a wonderful holiday. Above all, stay well. Rose
  11. Hi, all. Just checking in to say we are still doing well. I hope that everyone is healthy and safe. The weather was beautiful here today. I was able to get outside and vacuum out my car. Even though it hasn't left my driveway for three weeks. Stay safe all Rose
  12. Hi, Belle. I am doing well. Staying home and staying safe. I am lucky because I have my husband, oldest daughter and grandson here with me. The feeling of isolation is still strong, so I can't imagine how it must feel to be alone during this time. We don't have much planned for the weekend. Every day seems like the day before. Its even hard to keep track of the days. Today was a beautiful day here. Fairly sunny and although windy, it was a nice day to get out in the yard and get some fresh air. DH and I walked around our yard and planned what we want to do with our garden and patio once the weather gets a little nicer. Stay well. Rose
  13. Hi, all. We are still doing well here. My son did tell me that the number of NYPD cops infected was inaccurate. The news said 12,000 but its actually 1200. That is a relief. His partner just went out sick, so now I am counting the days until my son is either sick or cleared. I stayed the same. Haven't been eating much, so I thought for sure that I would have a loss. Robin, that price gouging is terrible. They should be reported. Stay well everyone. Rose
  14. Belle, I know how you feel about not being able to hug your daughter. I have not seen my son in weeks. He is afraid to come to my house. I have not seen my granddaughters except to FaceTime with them. I usually see them every day so thats been tough. My son is not doing his usual job. Everyone is on special details. They have to patrol the streets and stores to make sure people are not congregating. It's very different for my son since he has not been on the streets for a long time. But, with 12,000 NYPD officers positive for the virus, everyone has to do their part. Jo, I had my April cruise cancelled. I should have been boarding my ship in four days, but that is not meant to be. We also chose to cancel our B2B in July. We don't think that it will be 100% safe to travel at that time. We had to fly to PR for that cruise and don't want to do that. If things settle down, we may choose to hop on a cruise out of Bayonne (because we can drive there) in late August. But, we are waiting to book that. Everyone stay safe and healthy. Rose
  15. Hi, all. We are doing well. NY state is getting hammered, but we have been trying to stay at home as much as we can. My daughter and son-in-law are teachers so they are home and my older daughter is a government employee, but non-essential so she is home too. My DH was told to work from home full time for now. The one who is out there all the time is my son, he is a NYPD detective so obviously considered an essential worker. We have many cops who are ill so it is very scary for me. My schedule is way off. I sleep until I wake up. No alarm for me these days. The days seem very long sometimes, but I am trying to get some projects done. I love to read and do puzzles, so I have that to do when I am bored. Belle, I hope that your daughter is doing well. I know that she still has to go out to work. Stay well, everyone. Rose
