I was just checking out the pictures I took from our trip and saw these boots. I thought of Judi when I saw them. There is a store in Carmel, CA that is full of all these handcrafted boots. I haven't made time for posting on here lately. I don't know why, maybe I just can't think of anything to say. I have been reading the blogs I follow and sometimes when I read other blogs and see how talented and clever people are it makes me not want to post. I would hate to bore people to death. I haven't lost any more weight since my band adjustment. I am able to eat a bit more, but that isn't the problem. I have been eating stuff I shouldn't. I think I needed to just vent a little in my eating, since I was so restricted for so long. I have continued to workout at the gym so I haven't gained any weight. I am still tight in the morning so I don't eat breakfast, which I've always read is very important so I always ate it. But when you can't, you can't. I did drink a protein shake the other day and that went down ok. I think I am back on track now. Just had to get that out of my system so hopefully I will not continue to eat bad stuff and sabotage my weight loss. I did go to lunch yesterday with hubby at a place we hadn't gone to in probably 4 months or more. The lady who took our order said to me, "do you mind my asking how much weight you've lost?" She said she had been watching me lose weight since we started going there and told me how good I looked. That was a great incentive to behave myself. No more Hershey's kisses for me.

Yesterday was such a pretty day here. The sun was out all day and it was in the high 60s. Come on Spring...........

Hi Kathy,

I look foward to your posts!! I thought of Judi too the minute I saw your blog. I am glad you are feeling better and able to eat. You are really doing so well and everyone needs a bit of "downtime" and kisses of course!

I'm glad to hear all is well with you and you are holding the weight down. I know winter is often harder than any other time. We had a couple of nice days here too. But it feels like winter here this morning. 'On Ya'-ma

I give props to anyone trying to lose weight. Summer is on the horizon and that should mean more exercise for all. That will help too.
Hugs, Joyce

Honey, don't you ever worry about being boring! I love your blog!!! I always love to check in and see how you're doing, so just keep doing what you're doing, okay?

You're doing a fantastic job with the weight loss, so it's always good to hear when someone really notices and takes the time to ask, isn't it!
You GO girl!!

I love those boots. I don't know if I could ever pull off wearing them but they are cute. I love how you decorated your blog. I wish I knew how to do that. I tried doing a new template but it comes up something wrong url or something like that. I can't figure it out. LOL

Love those boots! I think it is great to vent and what better way than to do it over cyberspace! Congrats on your weight loss!!! Keep up the great work! I have gained a few pounds since doing my recipe blog which is one of the reasons I needed to take a break for a few days.

I love your blog, and am so proud of you and all the weight you have lost.
It is a battle, no matter what. I am trying but it is so hard.
Hope you have a good weekend.

Hi Kathy!!
NEVER think we would be bored with your posts! OMG! I shall beat you with a stick! Our blogs are as much for ourselves as they are for each other---to keep us "honest"....LOL....making honest women out of us!
As for THOSE BOOTS! OMG...do I want them or what? I'm going to a luncheon today and have been trying to figure out what to wear--those boots would fit the bill nicely! I am now craving them (better than craving chocolate!).
I'm dealing with lots of band tightness...went to a dinner party last night and hardly ate a thing (and all the food was so gourmet and beautiful!). Anyway, as I was sitting there feeling sorry for myself that I could not eat much of it, my girlfriend--who was seated next to me--whispered in my ear "oh how I wish I were you--being able to sit here with all this food and NOT eat it!". Yeah, and I was wishing I was her.....ha!ha! At least the amazing wine offerings put a smile on my face....
So, I'll keep thinking about what my girlfriend whispered in my ear!
Keep on focusing on feeling good!
Don't abandon those Hershey kisses completely....everyone needs a little chocolate now and then!

The detail on those boots is amazing! I too let myself slip with the eating, but I did it for way too long. I am back on the wagon...and staying there!!
