Out and Round

This morning I went to my T.O.P.S meeting in Bonners Ferry. I did loose ¾ of pound. One of our members lead the group on her new diet, Trim Healthy Mama In a short nutshell it was about food combo. It sound interesting but I'm wondering how hard it would be to do and keep to. Well next week she'll wrap it up.

I found out using the cards method been the easy and most successful tool for my weight lost. I been told a person needs 10 to 15 calories per pound. Depend on age, sex, and other factors like how activate one is. So for easy math if a person weigh 200 pounds and should eat about 2,000 calories to maintain current weight.
Not to be very un-comfortable to take off 20 pounds reduce your calorie intake by 200 so your eating about 1,800 calories.
I have a mixture of card types, which hopeful I'll explain tomorrow or the next few days.
For this year I lost 7 and ¾ of pound. For the holidays and all the goodies around. I just want to maintain my current weight lost.

Haven't been doing my walks do to a hacky cough, that hung around like guest who starting to smell fishy.
This morning after T.O.P.S and after my other short errand I took a walk, been a while.

I went south of Bonners Ferry turn up the road were the state highway department keeps there equipment. Found a place to park.

I like this landscape design. 

Then up though draw and pasture would be heading up toward Paradise Valley. 

I want get anther shelf in the shop/barn done. This is the odds and ends which was laying loosely on the shelf and a box.

This is what going out of here.

Also did three boxes of canning jars. Not bad most of them are Kerrs and Balls. I tossed out what was broken and non canning jars. I believe I toss out five. Which isn't much at all for the amount of canning jars I have.

Coffee is on


  1. Congratulations on your 7 3/4 lb. weight loss. That's 31 sticks of butter. At least that's how I like to look at it :-) I too am on a weight loss journey and I know how challenging it can be. Keep up the good work and stay encouraged.

  2. I have a friend who did TOPS and did great with it,..she was fanatical about it. I did Atkins low cab...not NO carb, and did really good,too. I lost 35 lbs in 10 weeks. It stayed off, too.
