Two weeks to blast off!

Howdy from the land of old time songs and old time jokes!

Well, we got thru Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a wonderful time.I ate some fruit and drank some water before the big FEED and made it thru OK.

It was nice to sit around and visit and then get up and go home---LOL---no dishes to wash!

I have really been pushing to get my right leg stronger before the 13th. It is working , as most of the time it feels really good. I am now walking pain free and climbing the stair case without pulling on the handrail.Between now and the 13th I will continue at this level and slide right on into the OR.

Three weeks and counting

Howdy from the land of buttermilk pies and turkey in the roaster!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and takes a little time to ponder on what you have to be thankful for.Count yer blessings, count them one by one.

Time is moving right along.My vest is full and have been climbing 15-20 flights of stairs a day. So, we'll get on down the road and get the left one fixed and ---BAM---I'll be able to jump tall buildings with a single bound!LOL

Keep moving and thinking thin. Use any tip you can to walk the straight and narrow.

But remember one thing---it is only ONE meal.Don't beat yourself up over one meal.

Loaded vest at 4 weeks

Howdy from the land of yapping dogs and hungry varmints!

2011 has been a year for varmints in my yard. Tina the Jack Russell gives them hell until Old Bill gets his ass out of bed and gets the gun.Such is Life in the dry country.

My vest is full, back at 40 pounds.My leg is getting stronger by the week.And my pants are getting looser.One thing I have not gotten use to again is eating cauliflower. I was eating some nearly everyday. Now I just don't much care for it.I guess I will just stick with carrots.

Next week at Thanksgiving I am gonna use a couple of suggestions I got from my last post.And, if I can snag the turkey carcass from my sisters house I plan on making some turkey soup over the weekend to use latter in the year.

I do have a question on another subject. Does anyone know someone that has had a gastric sleeve operation? What is their (your) opinion on those--no no-not for me, I am way too big a chicken for that.I know one person that has had this done and seems to be doing very well. I am curious as to pros / cons.

5 week , count down on

Howdy from the land of fall northers and approaching holidays!

Yes sir , the holiday season is just around the corner. With it comes all kinds of challenges to those of us that battle with too much weight and excess fat.
All is not lost in this war, we can use plenty of good sense strategies to at least stay even thru this time of the year.

I think the most important idea to use during this time of the year, is to keep THINKING.If I can keep the end goal in mind and THINK about the choices I make, it will be OK.

My biggest problem takes place when I get lazy and quit THINKING.

On another note,with the time change I now have to adjust some exercise routines. As I get home when it is dark, there is not as good a chance to do much around the place.I am trying to get a little more time in at lunch walking and I am trying to ride my bike on the weekends.

Although my quad is getting stronger in my right leg, I want to continue to improve my muscle tone before the next go around takes place.

Anyone have any ideas on ways to get thru the holiday season , let me know.And YES I already know ---just don't over eat or don't eat the pie!!
