Bee Bandwagon peach ice cream!  Yowza, it's good!  2 c frozen peach slices, 1 c milk (low fat), 1 t nectress or sweetener of choice, 1 c ice cubes.  The rest is up to the Vitamix.  It made 2 cups of deliciousness for 150 calories.  I could have served it prettier but I didn't.  I just crammed it in a cup and ate it.  All.

So last night I played canasta and I won three bucks.  I was ahead four but lost one.  Tonight is poker.  I hope I do good there too.

Well today is a special day for me.  First of all I moved to West Palm Beach 32 years ago today.  Then (and more important) two years ago today I started my healthy eating and exercising program.  In those 24 months I have lost 87 pounds but more than that I am strong and healthy now.  That is 3.6 pounds per month.  And 348 sticks of butter I am not hauling around on my a$$ any more.  That's three HUNDRED and forty eight!  That's a lot of blubber folks.  Thirteen more to go.  

I am not saying all this to pat myself on the back although that would be okay but more to motivate any of you that might not be on the bandwagon yet and need to be or have been on it and fallen off for a bit.  Hop back on, the ride is fine...  And have a great Tuesday too.

And please wish our friend Paul a very happy birthday.  He's getting better and thanks you all for your kind words.

    I have lost 17 but kinda stuck. Having eye surgery, then all the CT scans, MRI, MIA it has been almost two months ! Plus my pool heater is not working and the water is like ice only got in once. Like you I need my pool to exercise.
