  1. I found my adult Boy Scout uniforms and I have to say that they fit better now than they did the last time I wore them.

      I'm going to wash my uniforms and I will post pictures afterwards. It would be pretty cool if those of us that have our stuff from "back in the day" posted us wearing our old clothes again.

      My son and grandson are huge into scouts. My son got his wood badge in 2015 and this past week my grandson went on his first "Boyscouts" camping trip. He had a blast

      I was heavily involved in scouting as well, Eagle Scout, OA, multiple positions in OA including Section vice chief (the section was OR, WA and parts of ID), I was the shooting sports director at Camp Makualla for 6 seasons. Scouts was my social outlet because I left regular schools when I was 12. I was home schooled until 15 when I entered our local community college. I graduated from college the same year that I would've graduated high school.

  2. A new pair of boots just arrived for my employee. I took them out of the box, filled the box with random trash and put my worn out slippers in. I can't wait for him to open them!

      As usual. I get told to either go into a corner or play in the street.

      The ice beneath your feet gets thinner and thinner. I went easy by sending you to the corner. Many times I tell people to play in traffic. Watch it.

      LOL - my hubby just walked in our home office because I was laughing so loud as I read this. He is now laughing too. Be careful about accepting anything to eat or drink from your employee...laughing still.

  3. A minor stall broke today. My pants are trying to fall off and multiple people who aren't aware of my surgery and have been seeing me on a regular basis made comments about me losing weight.

      hurts my back to wrap gifts. I am thankful that people notice what a nice job i do. When my grown son saw the gifts under the tree, he said one of his best childhood memories was the fact that I always took care in boxing and wrapping presents. that I always made sure there were boxes of all different sizes and shapes with many different kinds of paper and ribbons. It made all that back pain worth it! I guess the good news is, I now wrap them over a period of a few days and always with a nice glass of Pinot gris in hand!

      Given the fact that I can no longer hold my liquor and was feeling pretty darn tipsy one of those nights....they still must have looked good. HAHAHAH

      I gave up on wrapping one year. I set up a couple of pieces of wood and spray painted all of them with engine enamel. Chrysler red, Chevy orange, Ford blue... I slapped some bows on them and called it good.

  5. I would fit an XL shirt so nice if my stomach didn't gain 9 inches when I sit down. Grrrr!

      I'm far from a super star. I've learned a lot and applied it. I also research the heck out of anything before making a move. I've enjoyed getting to know a lot of the people on here. Most that are here for any length of time are really helpful. There are also a few that I haven't seen around that I miss their input.

      I'm missing @Babbs...damned noobs treating her like crap. I hope she comes back.

      I hear you. I haven't seen @Valentina in quite awhile, I've seen less of Dub and B-52. Babbs and LisaMergs have disappeared. Quite a few that have given me good advice have faded away.

  6. My wife is "mad" at me. I put on her size 12 pants and they are loose on me.

      @WLSResources/ClothingExch

      A perfectly normal nose! My sweetie will occasionally post on my username on an automotive forum that I'm on but she typically doesn't do forums. I hate farcebook but occasionally I will ask her to post something for me.

      @OzRoo

      I'm fortunate in that my sweetie and I just have fun and truly love and respect each other! My sweetie matches my kind of crazy perfectly and makes my insanity stronger. Her mind is just as tainted as mine if not worse...

      HFFM, you are a lucky ducky, both you and your sweetie. And a tainted mind or 2, hey it all adds spice to life! Good for you both!

       

  7. I just walked into my garage from the rain and I didn't recognize my own footprints! I'm accustomed to killing the outside edges of my shoes. My footprint usually doesn't have an inside edge. Today I have a complete footprint!

  8. Wow! I lost 4.75 inches this week! I measure my chest, stomach, waist, biceps, thighs and calfs. The only ares that didn't go down were my chest and right calf.

  9. 14 weeks from surgery tomorrow and I'm down 75 pounds!

  10. My boss and co-worker both made comment about my ass yesterday. Another co-worker made a comment about my ass today. All three of these people are females. Not that I care but it is kind of nice to have a female that isn't my wife check out my ass for once!

      @LisaMergs

      We are a bit of a different workplace. Fortunately nobody would get offended.

      @heidikat72

      The direct comment was wow, you really don't have an ass. My immediate response was I knew that you were checking out my ass! Then I "modeled" for them in the worst possible underwear ad style while being fully clothed.

  11. Dang I love my 32" pants! I've been wearing my 34's the last couple of days and every time I bend over they slide off of my butt. These 32's cup my butt and don't slide when I bend over. It is amazing how great a pair of jeans can truly feel!

  12. I "only" lost 3 pounds this week so I knew that I should have a decent inches week. I've been doing ab and arm exercises. My arm and waist measurements are both up a little (and slightly sore) but I lost 3.75 inches! Also blood pressure issues are definitely a thing of the past, this morning I was 110/87 with a heart rate of 78. I've intentionally increased my calories to get me over 800 calories and making sure to hit my 64 oz fluid goal. Yesterday was my best fluid day yet at 114 oz!

      sorry read your post and my first thought was about^

      Going off BP meds was a great reason for me to do the surgery.

      My sweetie is doing very well. She was legally blind in her left eye and only had her central vision in her right. She has some permanent loss of her peripheral vision on the left side of her left eye. The tumor caused massive hormone issues that are still troubling her to a minor extent. She still has a bit of a depth perception problem. Coming from where she was in April is nothing short of a miracle.
