Re: Redoak's off-grid life.

Hello again, Redoak. Do you still visit this forum? I've been absent for several months myself and just today I wandered back in. If you do, please recount how you are doing these days.

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I have such sympathy for all who are trying to lose weight. I've spend most of my adult life being overweight and hating it. Tried every diet known to man including the kind that sends you your food. Nothing worked UNTIL... I cut out the worst thing in my daily routine... sugar! in the past several ...

Sounds yummy! I also add chopped celery and a couple eggs, otherwise the same.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Re: First bed quilt

Beautiful job, Ilona. I also like the rug. Several years ago I got into rag rugs myself. I crocheted them and had a lot of fun. Handwork is pretty darn satisfying.

Re: Back pain again

June, I also have osteoarthritis in my hips and lower back. I found a way that seems to help me when the pain hits hard. At least some of the time. I try to stand up real straight, lifting my arms over my head, stretch real hard and at the same time lean from side to side slowly. If I'm lucky, it se...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I agree, Redd_angel55, I too eat slowly. I'm always the last to finish at meals. I think eating slowly lets you know "in time" that you are full and can push away from the table whether your plate is clean or not. Another advantage I have is that my cats are staring at me, so more often th...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I don't know if this has any real relevance or not, but since January I have lost from 149 lbs to 124 lbs by doing only one thing. This is God's truth. My doctor told me to lose 10 pounds "at least" and I have actually lost 25 lbs. All I did was quit drinking sugary Pepsi and changed to de...

Re: Will I ever learn!!

What a sweetie, Albertajune!!! Sweet that she found a way to comfort herself when stressed. Yes, maybe you should make her a box with the toilet paper scraps in it. She may really bond with her "comfort bed." I can tell that you are a great "mama" to this precious dog.
