Hi everyone!

Quick one from me bc we are planning to pack and head out in a half hour or so. I just wanted to grab some coffee real quick and sit with you all.

Jaz- sorry about the knee still being swollen. I'm glad you had it looked at though so you know there is nothing huge going on there.

Ugh, family drama! Are you planning on seeing your Mom for the holidays then? I will be seeing mine before the Savannah trip and I am flying my brother out to ATL with me so that we can manage her together. He hasn't seen her in a couple of years so it was time.

Lori- Have fun golfing! Hope your shoulder does well.

Trig- Whoo hoo on getting to plan another trip! You'll be leaving while I am coming home. And so it goes!

Okay Kiddo, you are already doing the self talk about your nibbling, and Jaz reinforced that so I won't jump in much. You see how you are trending. Hugs and more hugs.

As for me, I have been doing a lot of study and thought work this time around with weight loss. I feel like I know the science part really well and I know how to lose weight. What I did not have the slightest clue about (and this is about ME, not you) is how to maintain, how to talk to myself, how to control my thought work and "sh!tty thinking" about myself and about food. I wasn't taught that, I didn't learn it, and I think that is absolutely key. Learning about self sabotage, learning about urges, how they work and how to handle them etc. I am going hard on learning that this time around and I honestly believe it is going to make a big difference for me.

Today was my week weigh in day. I'm down a pound and really happy about that, especially given that I traveled Saturday-Tuesday this week. I am now officially down 11.2 pounds since June 1. My first overall number goal is 11.2 pounds away from here, but I'm far less about the numbers this time around and have no particular end goal in mind. We'll just see where things go.

All right, I gotta get packed up. DH and I are going to have a good time for sure.

Oh! Real quick- you know the friend I went to the FL condo with, who also has the mountain house in North GA? She and her husband just picked up another property this week- A house in Napa, CA. Just crazy. Can't imagine it!

Good Evening!

I had a nice day on the golf course. Day was beautiful with low humidity and a fresh breeze. We do have a bit of cloudy haze from the fires out west, but it was still a nice day.

Thinking about Nic watching the waves crash on the beach....ahhhhh.....can't wait to see that again. You are in the zone with your eating plan and doing the mind work too. I understand all that in theory, but some of that mind work is beyond me. I admire anyone who can focus enough to do it.

Trig.....getting the RV all ready for another trip! Woohoo! You and hubby will have a great few days away. Hope MIL is doing ok since her stint in the hospital.

Jaz......Oh my..more family drama starring your Mom. That's the way it goes. Things will work themselves out one way or the other. One more day this week for you working girl. Glad to hear that your knees are improving.


I'll be ready to fall into bed at my usual 9 o'clock. I have 8AM tee times for the next 3 days. It's going to be in the 50's tomorrow morning. It'll feel good to put on a light jacket to start the morning.

Sleep well, my friends!

Quickie post as I have been browsing Amazon before coming here!

NIC- Have a AWESOME time! I really love how thoughtful your posts are! Just really thoughtful! I am right there on the self sabotage. I am trying to think of a book I read like 15 years ago :

When You Eat at the Refrigerator, Pull up a Chair is bestselling author Geneen Roth's witty tell-all about the secret ways we sabotage ourselves every day, as well as an inspired book on how we can learn to live, love and celebrate life no matter what.

It was a great read! I just gave it a plug.

Enjoy your beach time!!!!!!!!!!!!! Send a pic!

Trig- - Look at you getting ready to pick up and take off again! WE love the water don't we? Hey I know you are not a big reader- but you might like the above book too!

What are you eating today?

Lori- Of course you are teeing off!!!! Thumbs up on your game! Are you tired when you are done?
Are you still getting Freshly? I got a coupon but I think I am going to pass on it. I just found for just me it was too much.
My knee hurts more today than it did yesterday. I am pretty sure I crunched up the cartridge in there and did some soft tissue damage. It will take a minute. Good news it will heal eventuality with no surgery.

Last night I went to the pool to do "the bike" in the pool for my knee. Had the pool completely to myself. It was great. I took a cup of wine and a magazine with me and just relaxed until the sun went down.

My son is stopping in tomorrow and spending the night and heading out Sunday morning. He was down on vacay in St. Simon. He has fallen in love with the island too! I wished I could have spent more time with him but with a new pooch and a new job- it wasn't in the cards this trip.

Need a quick trip to the grocery on my lunch hour to grab a couple things. I am out of water, and coffee cream, a quick in and out. I need to pick up something to eat for dinner too!

back later...................

enjoy your golf Lori I know you do and 'a light jacket', WTH? HA don't even get me thinking autumn just yet LOL

Nicco, self talk is key for me. I must 'work it out' and alot of times I learned this just thru chatting on the forum in this thread long long ago. It was like I needed a new vehicle to help me, it can't be 'eat this and you won't crave'....cause damn yea, we still do crave but if we 'talk to us' about what is happening in the moment and don't react til 'we chat it out with ourselves' I found most times I now can easily 'control the evil carb twin' that is screaming this crap is unfair, eat all the crap you want and go on with your life' but in the end, we all know, if you want a healthy diet in this day and age, you have to fight for it and talk to yourself and remind yourself this is WHAT YOU want....your health!!

I am happy for you on your loss! Girl you are in the zone!!! It is a darn nice place to be isn't it? You keep on trucking and you learn to 'talk to you personally' on what it takes to stay there, I learned what it takes for me and believe me, it works! Takes time tho in our personal chats to 'get it totally' and train your brain for new paths to deal with events/issues/ and social stuff etc but in the end, we are all work in progress

Jazz, yea you took the brunt on one knee more than the a longer heal time but you will heal....just baby the darn thing to the ultimate!! Give it the heal time it deserves!

Cool your son is coming for even a fast visit. He is liking your area just like you love it, so I bet you see alot of him flying thru to take his beach trips around your area...neato!

---------------today is finish off rv for fast lake trip.

Good Afternoon!

OMG....was in such a rush this morning I forgot to pop in here. It is now 1:30 and I'm home from golf and showered and have the washer spinning. Lots of golf clothes to wash so I'm ready for weekend golf! We had a good time today and the two of us played 18 holes in 2 hours and 45 minutes. That is fast! I played really good on some holes and mediocre on others. Not a bad effort.

I'm sipping on an iced coffee with cream and english toffee flavored stevia freakin' good. DH is having corn on the cob and a burger for dinner. Not sure I'll be wanting anything as my friend and I went into the bar after our round for some, ahem, refreshments and I had a tuna good. Ate the tuna, melted cheese and tomato and left the bread.

Nic.....hope your beach weather is perfect!

Jaz.....How nice to have the pool to yourself and just bob around with a cup of is good! Hope the knee starts to feel better soon.

Trig.....I feel ya on the so many things to take care of before you can even go away for a few days. DH & I really can't both go away since we have to be sure Betty is taken care of. Our son wants us to go to Key West in February, but depending on where things stand, we won't both be able to be that far away from home. Hope you get all your ducks in a row so you can get away and have fun!


Nothing on the agenda for the afternoon here except laundry and getting DH dinner. A nap may happen too.

Happy weekend!
