Journey with Friends

08 Feb

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

 So friends how did you do this week?  Did you have a good week?  I was down 2 pounds – I’ll take that any week.  Little pounds add up to big pounds and slow wins the race here.  I type this watching the Super Bowl and I can tell you a couple of things.  First – Way to go BRONCOS!  I’m so excited that they won – it was a great game.  Half time wasn’t that bad – I was okay with that.  I’ve seen better and I’ve seen worse.  The commercials – my favorite was the singing goats.  Hilarious.  And what better way to end the weekend – I’m sick.  The hub unit came down with something on Friday night and I think he shared – bad husband.  Chills – cold then hot – sometimes both.  Sweats – runny nose – sneezy.  Yuck and muck.  So with 2 pounds being gone last week – 🙂 I’m happy

So how did YOU do my friends?

    Two pounds – WOO HOO! Concatulations! As for the “muck and yuck” – I had that a few weeks ago – not fun. However, it is helpful when trying to lose weight (unfortunately!).

    Hugs, Pam

      You are so right there! You don’t want to eat. You don’t want to drink anything. You just want to curl up in a fetal position and try to breathe – LOL. I hope this ends soon. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

      It is exactly that! This cough is so bad that when you cough, you sometimes pee just a little. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

      Yes it definitely has been that. I’m trying not to let it get me down. But of course we all know what happens when the man gets sick – he’s on deaths door – LOL. I still had to keep coughing right along with household chores. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

        I know… if my momma is sick it is a case of “come on, it will work out all right”… if my daddy is sick it’s a case of “call dr. house, the er-team, the pastor and the funeral-guy” :o)

        YES! You know it all too well brother. I watched as mommy went around the house in stealth mode yesterday cleaning while holding a tissue in one hand for her nose. It was crazy! XOXO – Bacon

      Hey staying the same is good. I did that last week. I look at it like this. We have to live in the moment and be with family. Taking it slow, we can learn how to adjust to this way of eating. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

    Two pounds is great! I have had a much better week and trying to not eat after my evening meal. I hope you both get better very soon. ❤

      Thanks sweets!! That’s the biggest thing for me – not eating after dinner. Sometimes right before bed, I want a little something. But nowadays, instead of going for chips or sweets, I grab an apple or orange. That has helped a bunch. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

    Living in NC, we were inundated with Panther interviews – all very cock sure they would win. I was so glad that a huge slice of humble pie was served to pop a hole in that ego. Diet? Mmmmnnooot so much. Wings, ribs, taco meat, cheese…but I don’t eat anything with flour, so none of the processed carbs that go with that stuff.

      Hey – last night was the exception to the rule in eating. It was definitely a let go to a point kind of night with that game. Everyone was so sure that the Panthers were going to win. I was so ecstatic that the Broncos got them. And did you see the interview with Cam Newton after the game. Shaking my head. Such a shame on him. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

      AND I just saw the one this morning with Kevin Hart on the First Date – OMP! I have been rolling with laughter watching that one. Hilarious. I didn’t see it last night. If you didn’t, google it. You will ❤ it! XOXO – Bacon's MOM

    Yeesh, sorry to hear you are sick…but WEIGH TO GO on those two lbs. Mama is struggling with her weight too. She wants it to be Spring so she can start back on her walks (Mama is not a gym person). I get roughly 1 1/2 miles per day walks, and she is used to an additional 2 on top of that. She agrees, slow and steady wins the race…. we hope you will be feeling better soon! Skyler B

      aaw thank you my sweet friend. This cough crap needs to find a new home somewhere far, far away from all of us here in blogville. It’s awful! And I can’t wait until spring either so we can all get out and walk more. Right now, it’s just a wee bit chilly for the anipals to go with me. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM

    Sorry you’re not feeling well, feel better soon! Saw my Doc last week, ugh. His scale doesn’t agree with mine, so I may have only lost one pound.

    • Piglove

      02/09/2016 at 10:00 am

      Hey 1 pound is ONE pound my friend. Take it! Winks – I’m already feeling a bit better. Just trying to get over this cough now. XOXO – Bacon’s MOM


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
