Good morning friends!
Its a snowy morning here in PA and we are anticipating more cold & snow over the weekend. We've been lucky to have such a mild winter so far and to see this snow it does finally feel like January. I don't mind the snow, just the long winters. In my old age, I am going to move somewhere warm....just sayin.
So enough about the weather. It seems I have been bitten by the nasty cold bug and its going on a week now. Ive had the runny nose, sneezing & plugged nose & ears & a sore throat. No fun and yuck! Thank goodness I am finally feeling better. I'm not a good sick person & my hubby doesn't want to get near me. HAHA! Cracks me up...he isn't a germaphobe but when I get sick, he just about quarantines himself from me. I have lost my taste buds with this cold so food just isn't enjoyable, which really stinks. I have been eating homemade chicken barley soup that I made on Sunday and that has been soothing to the throat and I am drinking lots of water and taking Mucinex D which might I add is a Godsend!
On the weight front, things looked good on the scale this morning. I never know what WW scale will say but I am thinking I am definitely down at least a pound. I always hope for more though. If you remember, I have been doing the Simply Filling technique but with the cold, I have deviated somewhat and have eaten some processed things this week but all in all, things have been good. I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday and bought Jorge's new book that Rosalie is in. It pretty much is a review of BFC & the quick meals are a nice reference for low sugar alternatives when dining out. I am trying to make better choices & eating lower sugar things. I do whole heartedly believe in the sugar/fat storage thinking. I wish that I were more disciplined to do the BFC all the time and I applaud all of you who have adopted it as your lifestyle. As we have said before, it doesn't matter what plan you are following. If you are seeing results and feel it is something you can sustain for life, then that is the best plan for you. Although my weight loss has been slow, WW is the best plan for me and is easily adaptable to my busy life. I have tried I believe EVERY diet known to man and this one has been the one that I have had the greatest success at, so I am just going to keep on keepin on! :)
I've been having problems posting comments on your blogs. I will get a comment all typed up and then I hit publish and it bleeps it away. It is very frustrating and I am wondering if that is happening to any of you? I have read your blogs girls and if you don't see a comment from me now you know why. I hope this is a temporary thing. A note to Pattie~ You are in my thoughts & prayers daily. Praying for your peace my friend.
So with it being a cold snowy day, my plans are to do a little cleaning. Not that I WANT to, but the ole ponderosa is in need of a good scrubbin! I hope you all have a great day today and a wonderful weekend!
