Good morning Everyone! Yes, Karen he was very nice and I am glad to have met him. My Deutsch is not so good  ??? when I spell it LOL Well so far it is not raining here, it seems like it rained every day this week. The weather is suppose to be very nice tomorrow and if so Paul and I are going to a water park called Aquadorm. It only cost 7 euro (depending on the exchange rate for tomorrow and just guessing about $9.63) for all day playing and fun. Okay, take care and I will check back later, take care and [8D], Diana

Hi Diana

Where is this Aquadorm? I looked it up on the net, but all I got was a company by the same name that sold waterbeds! [?]

 Hi Diana! I love those nice sets even more, I like the big ones.. not those little skinny seats that hurt your tush! LOL I bought a nice comfy one and it made a world of difference.
 I hope you two have a great time at the water park. sounds like a fun day planned! Really nice for a hot sticky day! The weekend has been ok here the weather has bounced between sunny and overcast but warm the whole time. It has been rather sultry all week!

Take care and travel safely.. HAve a lot of fun, Hugs!

Hello Everyone! :( Not such a good time after all. When we got there is was so over crowded that the room to swim was zilch! We tried to have some fun but ended up coming home for the day. I did NOT  [:(!] stick to my "healthy" eating plan and was NOT happy with my weigh in this morning  [B)]. I plan on giving it my very all this week to do my work outs and stick to eating right. I have a hectic somewhat morning this morning so I will talk to you all in the morning. Take care, Diana

Hi Diana

Thanks for the info! Hockenheim is a bit of a trek, especially if it gets as packed as you say! Luckily, we have some nice lakes around here, and we can cool if in those!

Well, really did not know what to put in there. I will start next Monday with loss posting. Wow you guys are doing GREAT! I have been up and down so many times its crazy.

Stuart, you have lakes?!   :P LOL of course I would be scared to death most likely to get in because I don't swim very well. Yesterday it was 86 and today is completely different with rain and cool air. Mmmm feel just like at home as in (Texas: If you don't like the weather stay a few minutes, it will change  ;D)

Karen & Carolyn Ehhh it all worked out okay. We came home and I did some gardening (window kind) and transplanting plants that really need it. Paul finally got some of his email cleaned out, believe me it was a mess. I went to the gym this morning and did some time on the treadmill. I have an elliptical but I get bored and have to change or I will lose interest. I did some riding on my bike yesterday although I was sweating like a stuffed pig but hey that is good right? Well off to get some things done, it seems my cell is turned off cause we recently moved and they sent the bills to the old instead and now I have to go up to the Rhein Necker Zentrum (The Americans just call it the "mall")to get it fixed  [:(!]. Bye bye Karen, Carolyn, & Stuart, have a great day.

Lakes, yes, but not bigguns! Titisee is teh biggest natural lake, and is perhaps 3 x 1 km. Schluchsee is a reservoir and is 10 x 1 km. It's used for energy generation.

Here's a view of my area from Google Earth.




If you're interested, there's a book by Mark Twain (A Tramp Abroad) which covers his travels along the Neckar, as well as other Germanic/Alpine regions. It's a very funny book, and has an appendix about "The awful German language". I would thoroughly recommend it!

Hi Stuart,

            Thanks for the information on the book. I however, have a difficult time keeping interest in books  :-\ . There have been a few books where I read the entire book and was pleased. If I can not get past the introduction or the first page of the first chapter I will lose interest fast  [8]. My mom can read a book a day or at the most three days, she is a true book reader. She has probably read a million books since I have been born. My oldest daughter, Savanna is a reader too. I will give it a try though upon your recommendations  :).

Hi Karen,
            Yes, I finally have my phone fixed YEAHHHH  :D but of course no one really calls me on it except for Paul sometimes. Wow Karen your weight loss is amazing! In February when I started back with SP I weighed in at 293 Lbs from being at 274 Lbs before Paul came home from the deployment. Then when we went back to the states for a month living in hotels and with family we mostly just ate out or had to eat what family was eating which at no fault of theirs was nothing like I ate. Well I put on quit a few pounds when I returned to Germany. In February I was so frustrated with myself I said "enough is enough!" and I went back to exercising and eating healthier. Today I am 277.5 which is a 15.5 loss. I went to the gym yesterday and did 30 on the treadmill. The gym has no air or FANS going during the day (No clue why  ???) so going there pretty much after the sun is up is a scorching effort so, it opens up at 05:30 and the soldiers don't get there until about 0600 and by that time I am done and I leave. This morning I missed it (I just did not go) so I will do some other form of cardio either on my bike or walking. I also have strength training I do three days a week. Oh boy, yesterday was a day. I put in over 12,000 steps. I wear a pedometer and count my steps. I read that an active person puts in 10,000 steps day on an average. I try to beat or meet the day before. Well I am off to do something besides sit here on the couch at the lap top.

Bye Everyone! Have a great day, Diana

Wow Diana I needed that motivation as I seem to be in a rut! I have been so up and down emotionally that my weight has suffered..I need to keep my nose down and just do it!. I am so glad for you that you are able to get so much excercise.. I wish I could to. I have been getting some walking in.. my activity decreased a lot after the mini stroke. So now I just have to stop being so scared of doing more..walking is really good for me so I need to do it. I am a bit nervous to walk in town.. or around here. So many strangers here lately. Any way Congratulations Diana you are doing fabulous!

It is cool you can use the gym. That is a benefit! I have eaten out since November and have gotten into bad habits again. So I have an oven again and need to get bake to using it like before!

BTW I love your Quote..It is very beautiful and sad.. Something that touches my heart.

who wrote it? Did you? Have a nice Day!

Carolyn you are also doing so well! When did you hit the 100 pound mark?

Yes, Karen that is one of my works that I wrote a few years back. Thank you for the compliment.

Stuart, that segment of Twain's book was fabulous, thank you and yes, I will see if I can find it at our library.
LOL I hope this is translated right Danke Stuart, Ihr ein hübscher ehrfürchtiger Kerl!

OMG! I just translated it back into English and that was not what I wanted to say. There is that "he" and "her" thing that Twain talked about in the Tale of the Fishwife. So in English, you are a great guy, thanks.

Hi Diana, It is beautiful...May I ask is "Distinguish" a typo as in "to  stand out in a crowd," or did you mean "extinguish," as in "to put out a fire?" I am assuming with the rest of the lines you meant extinguish.. but I thought I would ask, because I want to make sure I understand the verse properly!.. It is lovely!

Monday....finally! :)  Stayed at 85 lbs. for what seemed like an eternity then I finally started losing again.  Since that last plateau I've averaged about a pound a day.
