That's great for a successful trip. I'll be heading for blood work tomorrow (Friday) then pick the little one up from school.

I'll have to fit the restaurant in after the 11:15 am blood work as a replenishment for the trouble of traveling the whole distance of 3 miles and not being able to eat beforehand.

Yes, you have to trust your doctor or you won't be happy. So far I've been happy with all my doctors.

Looking back though, a couple of my doctor's were young and they were practicing on me at my peril. I won't let that happen again. They moved from the present practice.

Well, the docs around here (with few exceptions, like my wife) are all either ready to retire (& not up to date with the latest medicine), unmotivated (except for money, social status, etc...) or foreign-born (and I can't understand their accent). I am going to Peoria for a special weight-loss clinic that will do anything I need to help me lose weight. They have it all, dieticians, physicians of all specialties, exercise specialists (including a full gym, indoor track, pools, etc...), hypnotists, and even surgeons for bariatric surgery, liposuction, and cosmetic/plastic surgery (remove those ugly flaps of skin left after you lose so much weight). Tomorrow, I will be meeting with a psychiatrist. They really cover all the bases and will go as far as I want to go with them.
Our son, who is living with us this year, decided he wanted to come with me tomorrow, especially since I plan to meet up with our daughter (his sister) and her husband for a little while before they have to start their afternoon shift at work and I head back home.

Another doctor appointment "popped up", so I have to drive to Peoria this Thursday, VERY early, since it is a 2 1/2 - 3 hr drive and the appointment is for 9 am. Will spend a little time with daughter & son-in-law before they start work around noon. Then, after wife is done with work on Friday, we will drive to Green Bay for the weekend, as our granddaughter's second birthday is Sunday.

Sounds like it was an impressive show for the times. Now, we have to have the music transmitted by FM radio (there is a sign that tells viewers what frequency to tune to) and everything is computerized. Technology is great, but it is still a lot of work.

I'm getting tired thinking of all the work you have to do.

I do remember the old days when helping my cousin (next door from us) do all their Christmas stuff. It was great seeing all the cars coming by and seeing the display in the local Buffalo Evening News. I was their electrician and music hookup guy but like I said, it was just a tape recorder in those days.

I have totally eliminated candy of any kind from my diet. I am determined not to fail at this during the Halloween holiday. I cannot take the left-overs to MY work, since I am retired on disability (20 years now), but my wife is a pediatrician, so the kids at her clinic like when she brings the candy there. I won't even have "sugar free" candies (most have sugar alcohol, which they don't count but I do).

As for the Christmas show, yes, it is neat to have the father/son thing going. Unfortunately, we are limited in what we can set up until the leaves stop falling and the grass stops growing, hopefully another week. Until then, we can only do the aerial lights and stuff on the house. Then we can set up the controller boxes, wireless relays, power lines, and all the ground-mounted lights & figures. Then we configure & test the electronics, before we can start programming all the songs. We have to get all of that done before Thanksgiving.

Problem with the Halloween candy is...... that's about the only time of the year I consider "free candy" if not given out for Halloween. I don't eat candy otherwise.

We don't normally get any kids for Halloween but buy a little "just in case"

GB, it's great it's a "father and son" thing with the Christmas scene! I love getting in the car and visiting the places we know are extra special.

If buying Halloween candy; only purchase candy you can't stand. This way you're not tempted to eat it, and take any leftover candy to work after the holiday.

Son and I did more work on the Christmas decorations today. Lots of people walk for exercise past our house and they stop to talk, but most of them realize how long it takes for me to get everything set up, all the extension cords, etc...., and then testing and programming the show. I think they all appreciate the results.

The granddaughter and future husband will be holding off their honeymoon for a few months also, for a more convenient time for them.

It's great to have the other granddaughter and 2 year old here. I picked them up yesterday from the airport. Construction was a PITA traveling through mostly all construction to and from the airport.

My neighbor said in NY they could only build one mile per year, as per union rules, even if the state was building the road. It takes forever here, so I would think it's the same.

Hopefully, my travels will be limited to less than a 50 mile radius, maybe a little more, until the end of the month when our daughter and her husband leave for their honeymoon (just celebrating their first anniversary this week). The will drive here, park their car at our house, and (after a night's rest) I will drive them to O'Hare in Chicago (& I will then drive back). A week later, I will go back to pick them up.

I'll be making 6 trips to the airport in these next two weeks. 600 miles picking up and dropping people off at the airport.

For you, it's like going out for a cup of coffee but for me it's like driving to San Francisco.

It'll be great seeing the GD and the two year old great grandson again. I can't wait! He's so cool! Last time he was here, he chest bumped me in the leg many times in a row, showing he's the tougher one of the two of us.

It must be a daddy-son thing he and his daddy does.

Actually, it is 2 extra pills to take each day. I hate all those pills and swear I am just going to stop taking any of them!

Going to be getting pretty busy, though. Sunday, we have NFL Football (go Packers,...) Monday I have a class in Peoria (4+ hrs total drive time) and our daughter + son-in-law will be coming from Peoria either Monday night or Tuesday morning to visit and help us out around the house/yard a bit. Probably going to do some Christmas setup. The rest of the week, I have something planned every day, plus all the regular stuff I have to do.

Total congratulations on the 35 pound loss since April.

An extra pill to take, huh. I hate taking pills also but only take 3 a day. I also don't like the glucose pin pricks and the 2 insulin injections a day either.

Happy for you that the sport coat still fits you and looks good. Hope the wedding goes well.

Had two doctors' appointments. Both went ok, but each want me to take one more pill per day (I hate that) and one wants me to have an exploratory procedure done next month (really don't like THAT). Official weigh in leaves me down 35 lbs down from my max in April.

Off to see the dentist today then to get a haircut for the wedding the 19th. I'll be glad to get that all over with as there seems to be too much activity around here with the preparations.

No change in people around here as they both will be staying with us as they have been.

I dragged out the sport coat and it still fits me. The last time I wore it was about 5 years ago then perhaps 15 years before that. It still is in style and looks a nice nifty black. Now I have to look for my pants and tie.

This Florida living is so casual that I now also have to get hold of a pair of socks. Last time for socks was about 5 year's ago also.

Had my weight-loss support group meeting last night. The room was more packed than ever, which is a good thing. Several of the regulars told me I look like I have lost weight (which always feels good). My problem is that since I started taking anti-epileptic medicine, I feel sleepy/drowsy a lot of the time and that had reduced my total physical activity. I have been struggling to stay at the same weight, much less lose any more weight.

Today I have TWO doctor appointments, in cities 40 minutes apart. I hope the first one doesn't run too late or I will be late for the second one!

One of my new "filler" foods is popcorn. High in fiber, low in fat & calories, yet very filling. My wife special orders her brand that she says is the best microwave popcorn she's ever had, two cases at a time, and she brings it with her when she travels, even when she goes to the hospital. I just get the "smart" popcorn, not the best I've ever tasted, but less butter & salt, better for me, and I can get it cheaper right on the grocery store shelves.

I just looked up a few more things I normally eat for a "fast food" thing and was surprised at how many calories they were.

Idahoan instant potatoes and Knorr Fiesta rice sides. 440 and 960 calories, respectively for the whole pkg that I eat.

So far today I've eaten 663 calories. Coffee & Coffeemate, V-8 Spicy Tomato Juice, Raisin Bran and 1% milk. That Coffeemate was 150 calories, alone for one cup of Joe.

Have you considered writing down everything your eating to see which foods you are overdoing?

When I used my food spreadsheet I saw I ate 300 calories of Coffeemate daily. When looking at the Coffeemate container info it seems low on calories but measuring the gms. eaten it comes to the 300.

On my spreadsheet I list any foods I might eat monthly and when I eat any of them I put the 1 or 2 servings eaten and it automatically calculates the calories, fat, pot, sugar, carb, protein, chol, sodium, and fiber for the day.

When I seriously try to lose weight I use it. If you have any interest in seeing it let me know.

I think I will use it today and see if I can start using it again.

The kids are great...and always teaching us something. Last night, the 6 year old was pretending she was typing a letter on her make-believe computer and at the end she said..."hashtag", enter.

I couldn't believe she was quoting a "Twitter" entry.

In 10 days we will also have the 2 year old (for 6 days) so that will also be great.

Ok, for our sadness, here is something that should pick up our spirits and give a chuckle:Our almost 2-yr-old granddaughter, Ginny, pronounces "muffin" as "nuffin." Our daughter, Ginny's mom, bought a freshly home-baked muffin at the farmers market and when they got home she gave some of it to Ginny before daddy (Joel) realized they were home. When daddy spotted his little cutie and that she was chewing on something, he was concerned what it was, where she got it, etc... This conversation ensued:

Joel: Ginny, what are you eating?
Ginny: Nuffin.
Joel: What's in your mouth?
Ginny (insistant): Nuffin, Dada!
Joel: Ginny, show me what's in your mouth!
Ginny: NUFFIN, DADA!

Mommy had to step in there... but it was difficult because she was laughing so hard!

I wish they had that one on video!

I've been sad for many a year. My Buffalo Bills last entrance into the super bowl was in 1993, 21 year's ago and they have never won. They were contenders in the super bowl 4 years in a row, 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993.

We are sad football fans. Sure, our Packers won convincingly on Thursday, but now, on Sunday, they don't play and we will go through withdrawal and then next Sunday our game will not be broadcast locally. Add on to that the loss by our Wisconsin Badgers yesterday and we are sad.
I don't know how that affects my weight loss efforts, but...

I was in extreme torture when I lost my computer glasses. Thank goodness the cable guy brought them back to me. I worked on my neighbor's computer the day after losing them and it was terrible trying to see the monitor to read what was going on.

I am getting so I could use a prescription for distant vision, but I still can do without. For a while, I got prescription reading glasses in bifocals with the bottom lens for reading and the top, just plain glass. Now I just get reading glasses in a narrow enough frame for me to look over.

You're lucky that you have those type of eyes that can use ready made, store bought reading glasses. With my eyes, I take my glasses off for reading.

I have to have optometrist prescribed glasses for seeing (other than reading) and always need the exam.

In the past, I got all the bells and whistles in my glasses, paying a hefty price every time. Varilux and all. I finally realized I never used the Varilux and preferred to take my glasses off for reading.

Now I buy straight single lenses and am extremely satisfied. I'm near sighted.

I lose my glasses all the time, but I gave up on paying big bucks for prescription lenses & just buy the cheap reading glasses at drugstores so I can replace them easily. I probably have a dozen pair scattered around (different rooms of the house, in my truck, my bag that I carry with me with all my emergency meds, medical info, & stuff I need), even at my children's houses, in case I go there and forget to bring a spare pair. I don't think much about them, and since they are cheap, I don't mind if the lenses get scratched, etc... because I just throw them out and pick up another pair next time I go to the store.

I lost my computer glasses the other day and took about 3 hours looking for them in the bedroom. I couldn't believe I lost them as I am extremely picky where I put anything. Normally if the item was in that place three years ago it will be in the same place now.

There was a knock on the door last night and the cable guy brought my glasses back to me. He took them by mistake, thinking they were his. PTL as I had made an appointment to get an eye exam and get new glasses. Now I can cancel.

It's great that the doctor was pleased with your progress in blood work and weight loss. Way to go!!!

Watching the young ones hopefully keeps our thoughts young. I have the two young ones here and it's so neat to watch them grow. The 2 year old is coming to town the 15th for 6 days so it will be great to see him also, along with seeing the other granddaughter.

No weight loss here but no gain either. I still haven't seen if the sport coat fits me and it's 18 day's away. It's been about 6 years since I've tried it on.

At least I can watch other young athletes do the same things I used to do and I know what it feels like. I can remember all the sensations, the balance, the twisting and somersaulting, entering the water (even badly--ouch!). I remember the nerves it took to "mount" into a handstand, holding it long enough too avoid penalty, always knowing I could lose control and get a fail dive or lesser penalty. I know I won't ever compete at that level again, but I hope I will never forget what it was like.

You just had moments in that early body as I had, now. Hey, we can't do all the stuff we did when we were fit & trim.

In my early years I knew God was with me as I should have been "under the green" and not on top, with my crazy ways.

Street racing was my addiction along with drag strip racing. 12 months out of the year whether there was some snow or ice on the roads.

When I moved south I threw all the trophy's out and packed my car with everything I wanted in life. I don't regret it as it was a new life for me.

A few year's later the girls moved down here with me and are mostly still with me. (hopefully the one that moved to NY will come back down with us).

Yes, it is neat, but the wife nags me to throw it out. I just say, "I'm thinking that, if I lose enough weight, maybe it will fit me again some day." 1) There is no way I will ever get as small (or as fit) as I was in college. 2) Just the idea makes the wife smile. I am sure she wouldn't mind sleeping with a world-class athlete again (still talking about me, by the way). She even took one of the pictures I had from my diving days (doing a Back dive, pike, 3 meter, right at the peak of the dive with all my muscles either totally stretched or flexed and water dripping off of my body as it pauses for a microsecond before it begins to gracefully open up and fall past the diving board and then into the water) and blew it up into a poster and had it framed. Sometimes she refers to it as her "Rock Star" poster, because that is what I was to her, her Rock Star. Oh, I wish I could have one week in that body again!

That is so neat that you competed and still have the swim suit you used in college. It contains all the memories that we need to keep in our heads when we can no longer do what we did in earlier years.

Right now, the only "suit" I wear is my swimming suit, and that is scary. Ironically, I still have the speedo style swim suit I used to wear when I competed for my college swim team (I was a diver). I competed against some Olympic medalists (including Greg Louganis) in that suit.

I have a couple of suits in the closet but I'm also too large to wear them. If I would lose about 60 pounds they would both probably fit me. I'll stick to sport clothes for now.

Regarding dressing up, I used to have 3-4 complete suits with pants, jacket, vest, in some cases two jackets or vests for versatility, and they took up a large section of my closet. But then, I wore a suit to work every day. When I stopped working in the nineties, I didn't need them, but they stayed in my closet. Then I was diagnosed with MS. As much as I tried to stay active, it was harder and harder to do and in the 20 years since then, I have continually been adding weight, over 100 lbs over that time. wife has bought me bigger suits, but I was happy to have just one suit that fit me (until I out-grew it & had to buy another one). Now, I don't try to keep up. I stopped wearing suits completely. When our daughters got married, I rented a tux (had to look good to walk them down the aisle!). I want to lose all that (over 100 lbs) and keep it off. Then I will just need to take all those suits to the dry cleaners!
