    hello Cheryl and everyone.

    I managed 1650 last week finished a couple of classes. had my 6-month blood test for diet doc –waiting to see how that came out and had a meet and greet medical overview with my new GP(old one retired and his replacement isn’t keeping the practice.) Not much movement in our area as we are still in red zone.

    Hello my peeps;

    Dory here–checking in with 2665 words and 2 classes. I hope everyone had a good week and good Valentine. day. Cold and windy with major snow coming our way. 6-10  inches expected tomorrow. Right now we are just hunkered down like ticks on a dog. But tomorrow, after the Family Day holiday, hubby has to go back to work. Luckily it’s only a 3 day work week.

    Mona, have you tried the Virgin diet (JJ Virgin) It’s an elimination diet. I think I did better on this(medically supervised diet) then previous attempts because I went on that diet first. It’s not really a diet –it’s an anti-inflammation diet. (I ate nothing but soup for a week–gained weight–dr said he didn’t think I could lose weight–said prob gained on the soup because it was canned and full of salt.)– anyway what you do is to avoid the top 7 allergy foods for 3 weeks and gradually introduce them one at a time.– they say you can lose up to 21 lbs in 3 weeks but considering I couldn’t lose weight at all and 2 months on this I was down 15 pounds so I think it works.(2018) Her theory is food allergies and sensitivities cause inflammation in the body and weight gain–so if you want to try it–just avoid corn, soy, gluten, dairy,sugar, eggs,  and peanuts. You may have more but these are the ones that cause inflammation. I have her book but refused to get sucked into buying her products–they may be good but are expensive and are even more so since they shut down the Canadian site. I’m not trying to push it, everyones  body is different(and I know yours is the autoimmune problem.) but something to consider. I don’t think it is a panacea or I wouldn’t have needed this government program. I sure hope I can keep this weight off and I still have a long way to go,

    hello, Cheryl and all,

    I managed 5325 words this week. continuing my classes–3 Rwa and 2 future learns.

    The diet is still going well and I will talk with the diet doctor on Tuesday. While I’m not  Skinny Minnie, at least I’m not feeling like Dolly Dimples any more.

    I got to eat today, had the eggs I have been so craving. I was allowed 300 cal so I broke it up into 2 snacks and had a Japanese omelet(2ggs) and later I had 2 boiled eggs sliced–I may try having a full 300 cal meal tomorrow–maybe I have veggies in the fridge and chicken breasts. so it’s 3 shakes(675 calories) and one 300 calorie meal(solid food) for the next 2 weeks and then we transition again. I thought I was in heaven with the omelet.

    Day 19–750

    Day 20– 910

    The seniors’ centers in our area are offering virtual classes for seniors in e-mail, the internet, safe use of the internet, intro to Ipads, and intro to zoom.

    I signed up for safety and security on internet. and the zoom class which didn’t have a date. turns out it is part 1-wednesday 1:30 and my diet (mandatory) class is wed 1:00 so I told her I couldn’t take part 1 –my reason for missing “learning Zoom” I’m on Webex at that time. The second part is on the Friday so I’ll get the info from part 1–what I really want to know is how to get the backgrounds–the last class I took  just said they were bothersome so don’t bother.  The other thing I want from the classes is to figure out why I have so much trouble sending pics by e-mail or to instagram.

    I only managed 510 words today. It’s been one of those days, tomorrow will be better. I ended up ordering a new printer, my good one broke and my hubby can’t fix it, the backup is so slow and can’t handle anything beyond a few pages.

    I smiled when I read about the new kitten. Mine are not fussy on  the backup printer–too slow so no challenge trying to catch the paper–only Curly will still come when he hears it. but he mostly just watches, the old one was fast and he used to try to catch the paper when it was coming out or going in to do the backside of the paper. then he’d lay over the tray and nap because no sneeky paper was going to get past him. He caused so many paper jams and I believe its ultimate demise.–not that it wasn’t out of date already. I ordered a new one today so it should be here soon. Maybe I should have taken the extended warranty. or maybe they don’t cover abuse by cats.

    Just checking in–today’s count 875.

    It was diet meeting day and today’s presentation was on exercise. Was told there were belly dancing classes on youTube. Years ago–when I dodged sabertooth tigers to attend the YMCA and YWCA I took belly dancing classes and was in the advanced class. I stopped when the only instructor was hurt in a car accident and could no longer do the movements. Maybe time to take it back up–would be nice to get back into my old costume. Funny, back then, I was a 32B and didn’t have enough to do a proper bust shimmy, now even with losing 4” off my top, my 44DD’s would be in danger of whiplash.  I wonder what other dance goodies I could find there.

    Hello Cheryl and everyone.

    I wrote 6,705 words and did 3 workshops/ no future learns– though they start this week.

    y hubby works 4, 10-hour shifts and has Fridays off so the weekend here starts early and I don’t tend to write as much. It’s not as if we have anywhere to go with our province in lockdown and stricter measures being announced tomorrow. On the good news front, I am now down 28.2 lbs. and 10 days away from integrating solid food. 1-300cal meal or 2 150 calorie snacks for a period of 2 weeks, before the next stage begins. I’m dreaming of eggs for some reason. been craving  eggs for some reason.
