checking in:

Hi everyone, I've been off the computer for awhile...... had my surgery on my hand (the knuckle on the left index finger remove, it was so bad from gout) I'm having a hard time healing! but its getting better. and of course I have to type one handed!!!!! I put on a lot...... of weight with the surgery, was 241 the morning of surgery and 249 a few days after. but I started eating rice again and this morning I'm at 239. I like rice with a cheese sauce, and rice and black eyed peas, rice and chicken breast with cream of mushroom soup. If you have any good recipes I'd like to have them.
I love hearing from all of you. I really need your help with staying with this. (so much better for my health) I've been feeling pretty good but I miss my knitting and crocheting.
God bless all of you,

weigh in for me!

Hey gang - just a quick note with my latest weigh in... I've been bouncing around the 251 - 252 mark for a while now, which on one hand is a good thing since I haven't gone back up to the 257.5 mark where I started from... BUT it's also slightly discouraging because it's like the scale is just stuck there.  But then, today, I got on the scale fully expecting to see the same old numbers, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see the number 249.5!!!  So somehow I've finally broken through the 250 mark, I'm pretty excited about that.  The only thing I did differently yesterday was eat rice.  No joke.  So I'm going to cook up some more rice, and eat some today also - we'll see what tomorrow brings!!  :)
