    Ok, well today I have decided to start the Military Diet and it does NOT incl alcohol! One of our Starters recently lost 30# in one month on it. Like he said to me you can do anything for one week.
    Took a walk down to where we are storing some furniture as we had to get BR set in front of garage. Guy coming this afternoon to buy it. Called an auction guy about our dining room set. They will come & pick up and take 50%. Had to send him pics, now waiting to hear if they will take it.
    Frances, you want to join me? Timing is good for me as I need to be clear headed and have energy to clean out closets, etc.
    Here's to Day 1.

    Hi everyone - TMH ...."to Day 1!" Good luck to you! I will give that diet some thought - if I do, it will start tomorrow - I have a baseball banquet for my son tonight and paid a lot for the ticket so i don't want to restrict myself at that! It would be awesome to lose a few pounds, especially now at the start of summer!

    AG - you are very right, who we hang out with definitely makes a difference! I have always had drinking friends but like you, I'm sure I can find others out there who don't drink!

    Hope everyone has a great weekend - I've been working on a slide show for the banquet tonight - i think it's OK I hope everyone likes it!!

    Stay strong all!

    AG - because I usually do Fast 5 or Alternate Day Diet, & not working for me right now. Dh is back on F5, & he is saying the same thing. I googled it and thought it looked quite doable. It's a 3 day menu, rinse & repeat. I lost 1/2# each day. So having my 3rd day breakfast of 5 saltine crackers, slice of cheddar and small apple.tomorrow I play golf, & will go in with friends for lunch. Suppose to have 1/2 cup tuna and slice of toast. Will order a scoop of tuna or chicken salad & substitute fruit for the toast. Probably better not to tweak, but I will have burned a fair amount of calories playing 18 holes. Not nearly what some of the apps tell you, but it takes 4 hours & I try to walk to my ball rather than always ride.

    How's everyone doing? Good weekends?

    TMH

    Hi there! The slide show turned out great, thanks for asking! I did a section at the end for each senior with toddler-age pictures and pics of them as they grew up - and then now...played "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts during it and I'm pretty sure all of the senior families were teary! I also had side-by-sides of 'then and now' and that was fun because they were baseball pics so a kid pitching at age 10 and then pitching now at age 18, or getting ready to bat - little and big side by side...it really showed how they are basically men now. That part was my favorite.

    I looked at the diet - thinking about doing it. I think being told what to eat would be very helpful for me! (but I haven't quite committed to it yet....as you can see lol...)

    Good job. Frances! Bet they did appreciate it. BTW, I looked at the diet again. Totally misunderstood it. Yes, you do the diet for 3 days, THEN you eat normally for 4 days but not going over 1500 calories on off days, then back to the 3 day diet. So it is kind of like intermittent fasting or ADF.
    Under FAQ people brought up alcohol. Answer was yes could have it but you won't lose as fast. Duh.
    Decisions. Think I'll go thru one more 3 day cycle, adding a day, then take weekend off thru Tues as friends invited us for dinner that Tues night. Lasagna so definitely not fitting in to those high protein days. But that would work well for setting stage for going back on plan come Wed.
    Ok, need to put Flylady hat on and get some cleaning done.

    TMH - Flylady - Yet another inspirational thing you've mentioned here! Laundry is my nemesis and just like with dieting I just cannot seem to get past thinking about doing something to actually doing it! The stupid laundry always winds up to be a mountain before I tackle it. when oh when will I diet and do the laundry more regularly? I guess thinking about it is the first step? Look at how long I thought about changing my drinking before I did it!

    My mom has her 80th birthday soon - we are planning a party in just a couple of weeks - I'm really looking forward to it! Mom was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer late last year so we feel blessed that she has reached this birthday and especially since she feels very good right now and her treatment is working. Yeah!

    Off to my daughter's playoff game tonight - hope they win! Son's team lost on Monday so they are done. His last high school game. It was pretty emotional for both the kids and the parents.

    How is everyone? AG it's been a few days - hope you're well!

    Happy Friday everyone! the sun is really shining here and it's the first time in a very long time that we've had a bright sunny morning - it's nice! I have so much going on over the next two weeks it's gonna be crazy. My daughter's softball team lost their playoff game so that's done, but there's still her end of season banquet to go to and I volunteered to do the slide show! it is so worth it in the end but it takes quite a bit of work getting together. I'm hoping since I just did one for my son that it will go faster than usual. That, along with planning for my mom's birthday party and my son's graduation, is going to make for a very busy week! Oh yes, and I'm seeing my best friend this weekend for the day on Sunday - looking forward to it, but there goes getting anything done on that day!

    TMH I'm thinking I might start with the military diet on Monday!

    Have a great Friday everyone - stay strong!

    Hi - well last night was kind of a bust. Invited over to friends who just moved to new place. Had a drink, got a tour. Then we all went out to dinner. Some wine with dinner. Wished we had stopped there but because other friends drove and also had coupons for buy 1 dinner, get half off of other one, we invited them in for a nightcap. Now they only had 1 mile to drive home, 25 mile speed limit. Wished I Would have had water, but had 1 more glass of wine. Ugh! Over and done, new day & will do better.
    What happened to Blue? Hi AG, Frances. Frances, let me know if you decide to do,the diet tomorrow. Highly recommend doing just the 3 days, then 4 days off. Otherwise, you get sick of the food. Good luck!
    TMH
