4-18-19 Thursday Weigh-In....Happy Easter Everyone

Recommended Posts

Good Morning one and all

Do you hear the call

 

On the scale you go on this weigh-in day

Hope the numbers go your way

 

Be nice to lose this week you know

In case Easter day you can't say no

 

Could be lots of eggs, candy and dinner

Might be hard to get through the day a winner

 

So a loss this week would be nice

So next week don't have to just have water and ice

 

So everyone have a nice Easter with family or friends and have fun

Remember you don't have to eat the candy..instead go for a run

 

Alright just have a bite or two..Bunny ears are so good

Only on Sunday the rest of the week have food   (no chocolate)

 

Know you can do it because you want to lose weight not gain

Will be hard but your strong you'll just have a little pain

 

Next Thursday you'll be Happy and not have a frown

When the scale will show your numbers down:classic_smile:

@Belle Great poem! I am up this week almost 3 lbs which is frustrating. No cheating, no eating out, no wine. I worked out Sat, Sun, Tues, Wed. Oh well. Good luck all 🙂 155 days to embarkation!

Hello,

 

Happy Easter to those that celebrate. Great poem Belle.

 

I stayed the same. That's ok. We leave tomorrow. Will check in when we are back on May 17th. I think I'll be able to keep my gain at 3-4 lbs. 

 

Jenny, oh no a gain and even with no wine. Not fair! Hopefully it's just something like water weight and goes away soon. 

 

Have a good day everyone.

Jenny thank you. Your gain could be water weight from all your gym time and

will come off soon.  You've been so good.

 

Diana thank you too. Bon Voyage! Have a great time. Will miss you. See you

on May 17th.  What a nice long cruise, you know I like long ones too.

(do I remember right..2 different ones or b2b's?)

Diana..Great trip. Have a friend who left the end of March for a cruise

then a land trip, Prague was one of the places she was going to by car.

( I was in Barcelona last Oct. and Nov..Two port stops. Seems like such a long time ago )

 

Have a great time, know you will.

We don't buy internet time. Too slow on NCL ships. We get some minutes free but we burn those with email to family.

 

We fly out today 7:30pm to Miami. Doing a red eye. Not my favorite but when we were looking at Miami hotels for tonight they were stupid expensive and so were the daytime flights, obviously because of Easter.

Hi all!

 

Belle ~ nice poem, thanks & great not gaining again.

 

DIana ~ have a lovely time on your cruises. I love Prague, hope you do too. My friend from work found it too crowded but I didn't.

 

Jenny B~ better luck next week.

 

I weighed yesterday & was up 0.4 but weighed again today & was down 1 lb since yesterday! I've had company since Tuesday & been eating vegetarian but also eating a couple of lunches out so don't know what that's about!!

Anyhow just 9 more days 'til my ship sails & I can hardly wait!

 

Have a nice weekend & Happy Easter!

 

~ Jo ~ 😊

Hi everyone, Belle thanks for keeping the thread going each week. I haven't posted in a few weeks as have been so busy dealing with my dear moms health issues. Now that she's in a safe place I guess I can post and get ready for our cruise to Bermuda next weekend. Unbeleivably I am down almost 4 lbs since the last weigh in.. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and If you celebrate Passover or Easter enjoy time with your family and friends. At our house it's like the trifecta.. Easter, wifes Birthday, and our anniversary too..  Take care all Rob

Rob good to see you. Wondering where you were. Sorry your mother has been ill.

She's better now, I hope. Glad you will still be coming in.

 

Sounds like a busy week with all the celebrations and getting ready for a cruise.

I'm glad you were able to lose with all the stress.

 

Gee so far three of you will be gone at the same time cruising. You all are

going to have fun.  Some day one of us might be on the same cruise at the

same time!

Hey Belle, actually brought mom home from a stay at a rehab facility where her 83yo sister is a long term resident last Friday. Didn't have a good weekend and Monday am was back at her dr. office. He called ambulance and re admitted her. This stay has to be longer if she wants to try and go home, but facing the facts of not living alone anymore is weighing heavy on her mind. tough since I just took her to Vegas 5 months ago for her 85th bday and she seemed ok..At least now I know she has the care and someone to keep her safe 24/7...She was with us a few cruises ago to Bermuda..

Hoping everyone one had a Good Easter or Passover or just a good Sunday.

If getting on the scale...hope it has good numbers for you. If NOT get right

back on track. Don't make it worse by eating MORE!

 

Rob so sorry. I know how it is, had to deal with my parents too. It's hard.

Hope she's feeling better day by day and you have time to figure what to do.

Hey Guys,

 

Update: we never made it to Miami for our cruise on Saturday. The airline cancelled our flights (and many others) because of the weather in FL. Because of Easter and Spring Break all other flights were full, even from alternate airports. We thought to meet the ship in the Caribbean but it was 4 flights (because we live in nowhere's-ville) and only 3 days left of the cruise. No way.

 

So, we are rebooked to fly to Miami this Friday, spend the night and board for the Transatlantic on Saturday. 

 

What can you do? We can't control Mother Nature..........In 20+ years of travelling all over the globe nothing like this has ever happened to us. Our luck was bound to run out........

 

So I'm around through Thursday.

 

Rob, wishing your mom well. 

 

Jo, you had a loss, that's great. 

 

Have a nice day.

 

Diana

Got back late last night from our cruise ... had a wonderful time .. the Edge is interesting, enjoyed Celebrity, and would cruise on that line again (but not exclusively) .. It was great being with family and we had lots of food, drinks, more food and even more drinks.  I am not looking forward to getting on the scale on Thursday!!!  Jan

Oh Diana I am so sorry. Flying is not like it use to be. Remember my flight was cancelled too but was

able to fly to an other airport and pay 3x's more to get to port. (but wasn't a holiday)

I hope you had cruise insurance .(.these days you shouldn't travel without. learned the hard way once)

to get your money back or credits for the cruise.  Glad you still get to do the TA.

 

Jan Welcome back, glad you had a wonderful cruise with family. Maybe the scale will surprise you.

(you have a few days to lose before Thursday) plus remember some could be water weight............

if you did gain.

 

Everyone take care.

Good Morning All.

 

How are you all doing?  Did you get back on track after the weekend IF you ate to much.

I think I ate to many carbs yesterday but plugging along. No candy just food!🍴

 

Everyone have a good day.

Rob, thanks for the well wishes.

 

Jan, glad you had fun. The Edge looks like a great ship. We sailed Celebrity once and I loved it. 

 

Belle, we did have "some" insurance. We've never had to use it so just get a basic policy. Need to rethink that. Anyway we'll re-coop some funds. 

 

Bags are still packed, ready to go......

Diana at least if you lose some money it was on the shorter cruise not the longer one.

We learned the hard way, never took insurance, was on a 33 day, husband got sick on

8th day had to get off ship. Lost the money. Now never cruise without insurance even if short one.

Never know what's going to happen.

 

Friday will be here soon and you'll be off again and will have a wonderful time.

So, hate the idea of weighing in tomorrow after spending a week enjoying food and wine ... I'm hoping that it isn't more than 3.5# extra ... That I can handle ... good luck to all tomorrow
