    Hi Judy, Rachael, Helen and Jean and all who come after me.

    Rach, don't feel bad, I have put on 2 pounds myself. This sitting around and letting this foot heal is the pitts. I try and do exercises in my chair but it don't work. lol

    So: weigh in at 187

    Breakfast: 1 banana

    Lunch: No clue we have to go to town again. I'll try and remember to come back here if I'm not laid up with this foot.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -185; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Breakfast: 1/2 C. old fashioned oatmeal, 5 walnut halves, blueberries, 1/4 almond milk, black coffee
    Lunch: 2 leftover baked chicken strips, 2 C mixture of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower with 1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette

    Hi Deb I do love the little furry doggy but looking forward to her being picked up tomorrow night the responsibility
    of seeing to all her needs makes my life a bit more complicated ...she is a cover stealer when she sleeps with us LOl very adorable but glad I don't have a doggy of my own
    that would take a huge commitment that I am not ready to make . vacations sure I can doggy sit but more than 2 weeks not a chance , LOL
    My house is a mess with doggy toys every where
