Wordless Wednesday


OOOPS MOM..HELP!!
I just love to see animal mommies and their babies...just goes to show that mommies are mommies no matter what you are...


I started my new food plan this morning with Curves...Oh boy I hope that I can do this..I have to stay for 1 week on a 1200 a day calorie count..I have meal plans that I can go by or I can do exchanges..so we will see!! I am one that just hates to have to think what I am going to eat!!

You stay on this 1200 calories for 1 week THEN you go to 1500 calories for the next 3 weeks. They say at Curves that adding calories back make your metabolism come back up..so we will see...I only HOPE that I can do this. I need to lose 20 lbs...wow!! I have kept my inches that I lost...pretty well off but my weight is coming back. I hate hate hate having to think about this.



Then there is the economy!! Hm!! I am watching the Today show and there are EXPERTS on here trying to explain about the stimulus package; how to save money (smile); how to invest money (funny)....I am just thinking well people need to have jobs...need to be able to pay their bills....hm!!

More and more when I am driving from place to place I see more businesses going out..pretty soon we will have just stores sitting empty because they could not keep them running...We see this here with Mike and his job as a sub contractor!! He receives his jobs via fax..This morning we heard the fax 3 times and that is something that we have not heard much here. People are just not buying which of course everyone can understand...but that makes Mike have no work..makes us wonder how to pay our bills and stay here in our home...This world is just crazy! Something needs to be done and soon.

I have a friend in Illinois that said Caterpillar there in Peoria has laid off many many people now. She told me that President Obama is coming there tomorrow to see for himself..I guess...As we have heard he went to Elkhart, Indiana before his press conference the other night. I am just praying that what he says he can get done...he has the Congress to get past just like every other president before him!! I have a time wondering WHY people blame the president when they should be blaming Congress instead...Makes no good sense to me...

Now that i have ranted..guess it is time to get up off my butt and get going for today!! Just wanted to say hi to all of you out there in blog land. I am really concerned about my friends that live in Australia. They are burning up there and it worries me for my friends there...

Have a great day!!

FLIP FLOP
Thought for the day: "Every path has a few puddles!"

Hey....... good luck on that food plan and you CAN do it....... I have started a juicing diet....... It has been three days.......We will see........

Not sure where the economy is going.. We too are seeing stores closing..... I have not watched the news since the night of the election and my spirit man is so much better off..... I just read my bible and hear what GOD is saying.... HE sees tomorrow........

Love the path and puddle thought! I have stepped in a few!

I feel the same way as you do. I think that I have figured out a sure plan to lose weight and save money...eat less by buying less groceries.If I would stay out of the grocery store,I would save money and therefore eat less...or maybe not! Ha Anyway Have a blessed day.

Yes, President Obama came to Ft. Myers, Florida yesterdy; they have over 10% unemployment!

Hi Sandy,
Your food plan sounds challenging!
Your job and business situation there sounds much like ours here. Loads and loads of businesses closing, and many people out of work.
I can remember living on next to nothing in the early years of our marriage, and we just did what we had to do. Seems like it's time to start thinking that way again.

My weight keeps finding its way back no matter where I leave it. LOL Have a great day Sandy!

Praying for you my friend, love you.

Hi Sandy. I do hope that all stays well for you and Mike during this recession (depression?).

Good luck with the eating plan...I'm starting one too, but that's all I'm saying. I'll see how it goes...

Thank you so much for your concern about me, but I am 2000 km away from the fires. Our state is 62% flooded and a national disaster area...quite the opposite of Victoria. However, we are about
800 km away from those too.

So between flood and fire...what's left. Let's not even go there!

Do take care. Hugs

Hey babe, Good luck on the food plan. I've been really happy with the one we are on right now. Any diet that says I need to eat two muffins a day is fine with me! Gotcha all prayed up. So glad the fax machine is finally getting jobs for Mike. Loved talking to you...Miss you.

Hope your food plan goes real good! It sound a little hard but you are the kind of person who can do it!!
Nancy got your Valentine today and the stickers and she loved it all! The monkey sticker were so cute and she went nuts over them!!! Thanks for thinking of her!! Love and hugs Carolyn

I'm praying for you and the food plan. I know it is so very frustrating. And it is a vicious cycle to be sure.

I agree with you about the stimulus package and economy. It was kind of the reason behind my money post this week. It's sad what is happening in our world.

Hugs,

Susan
