Sunday Weigh In November 21, 2021

Good morning.  How is everyone this morning?  It looks like we're starting off with a beautiful day, though I think it's supposed to get cold and/or rain later.  

Everything has been really quiet this week.  Just trying to finalize plans for Thanksgiving.  We'll do Thanksgiving on our own and Daughter and family will come on Sunday.  

I spent one day this week in my shop, working on pens for gifts.  One turned out super well and I ruined another when it was "almost" finished and ready to come off the lathe... grrrr!!  

I went to do my routine blood work on Thursday morning, so am waiting for those results, which could be in any time.  I do have an appointment with my pcp on the 29th so we'll see what he has to say about everything.  

I'm feeling better than I was for a long time.  We did have our COVID boosters and I seem to be having a delayed reaction, but it's getting better.

I've actually gotten out and gone for several walks, as well as cutting back (most of the time) on the amount I'm eating.  I haven't weighed this morning, but a couple of days ago, I was down a pound from last week...  yay me!!  It's not enough to make my doctor happy, but at least it's going the right way.

So how about you?  How did your week go?  I hope you were able to meet whatever goals you set for yourself.

~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~

Nice to hear you're feeling better, Barb! I had kind of a rushed day and forgot to weigh in before lunch, will do so tomorrow. We've been eating a lot of casseroles lately, which may not bode well. lol

It's break time here, but there hasn't been any relaxation. The school where I volunteer had a bunch of last-minute kids-gotta-take-it-home-for-Thanksgiving art projects that needed to be laminated, which I came and did on Friday when I usually am not there, we did another allergy shot go-round (and my son has two doctor appointments tomorrow), and I worked on a project I had promised to someone for 12 hours straight yesterday. Our car has been giving us a "low tire" warning, which means two drivers in two cars need to get over to the tire place to drop off the one car with the bad tire, and pick it up after they figure out what's wrong. Stuff like that really says "Thanksgiving vacation," right?

I'll get my weight tomorrow, good or bad, and write back.

I'm sorry to hear about the vehicle issue - we used to get low tire messages on our old van - turned out that the tire pressure sensors went bad... once those were replaced, we didn't have any more issues.  Anyway, I hope you've been able to get that sorted out.

It does sound like you've had a busy break time.  

Unfortunately, my "feel good" days didn't last long - I crashed.  I had my blood work drawn on Thursday of last week and it's no wonder I crashed - both my thyroid hormones are quite low in the ranges and I'm hoping my doctor will be willing to prescribe an increase in medication.   This could explain the difficulty/inability to drop pounds, as well.   I see the doctor on Monday - we'll see what happens.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well, up one pound from last week. I'm not too surprised, I made a big, lush casserole (tuna, shrimp and noodle, with tons of buttered breadcrumbs on top as crust) and we ate it like there was no tomorrow for two or three evenings. Guess that I could stop doing that! lol

Everyone have a great week!

Sorry to hear about the pound up, but those casseroles sure do sound nice with the cooler weather!!  Unfortunately, husband isn't big on casseroles, so if I make one, it's something like scalloped potatoes with ham, etc.   Anything with tuna and shrimp would be our of his realm, though it sounds every so yummy to me!!

Even scalloped potatoes with ham would be great in the cooler weather. Hope Thanksgiving is fun!
