  1. HI all! I enjoyed the show but didn't like the end result. I wanted Peta & partner to stay.. I loved Peta's pink dress & Monica's blue dress. I didn't like Carrie Ann's look, where did her neck go?!! Anyhow it is what it is. Just a couple more days 'til the next show. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  2. Hi all! Belle ~ nice opening thoughts. Good on you losing a pound.. Strange times when I dream about going into a store & realize I don't have my mask on!! I'm down 0.2 so back in the highest 160's. I'm listening to Valerie Bertinelli's book so will maybe learn something from that. I love listening to books, especially when read by the author theirself. Community Care for Seniors here is offering a Zoom program of a different kind of exercise every day eg pilates, chair yoga, mildly spicy moves so I've been doing some of them instead of my usual Wii fit. The other day I attended a Zoom talk by Rick Steves, put on by PBS & attended by 1200 people! It was nice to hear about travel! Today I'm trying to decide whether to attend actual Church tomorrow or just Zoom it, safer to stay home I think. Anyhow that's about it from here. Hope you're all doing well & staying safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  3. Hi all! Yes, I watched too. I was almost begging for a costume change out of that green outfit!! If Tyra didn't make such a grand entrance it'd be less rushed at the end! I like this season that so far there doesn't seem to be a really poor "star" who's hanging in by a popularity vote & really enjoy the music. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  4. HI all! I see Christian has a new show on Bravo called "So Siriano" but I don't get that channel through my provider.😢 Sounds like it is a talk show. Wish "Project Runway" would come back. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  5. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. I'm up the 0.4 Iost last week so back to 170. I sure have to get serious soon!! My snacks are what's hurting me & my lack of discipline. I'm typing this while listening to a Zoom presentation. I have access to at least 2 Zooms a day, one of which is an hour of exercise, so nice when I can fit it in. Looking forward to this aft when I'll talk to a cousin I haven't seen or heard from in maybe 60 years!! Her DM passed away in April apparently from Covid. Rose ~ staying the same is good. I hear you re trying harder!! Have a nice weekend. It's our Thanksgiving so there will be turkey & pumpkin pie but no family members .😢 Stay safe! ~ Jo ~ 😊
  6. Hi all! Holy crow, what a show last night!! Why is Tyra wearing such ugly gowns that make her look so wide?! I thought Derek was to dance last night but didn't see that happen. I'll be interested in hearing what you all thought about last night's show. Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  7. HI all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. Have a great time with your son. I see some nice losses this month! WTG! I lost 0.4 lbs & 2 lbs for the month. I've got to get serious as it should be more like 2 lbs a week!! Oh well, new month, another chance for a new beginning! Take care & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  8. Hi all! Our book discussion was cancelled as some want to watch. DH will watch too & I might take a look. I think this is going to be a bad week for me as I couldn't resist some chips, then ate more than I should have. Oh well, new month on Thursday & a new start. Have a good day. Cooling off with showers up here. Stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  9. Hi all! CruisinCrow ~ I noticed that with the phones too & find it disrespectful. I'm enjoying the show & like the faster pace. I'm not impressed with Tyra's outfits, thought she looked really heavy last night. Is she "Top Modelling" Carrie Ann with all the different hair colours?! I think the right person went home last night. Nice to see Len pop in occasionally. Have a nice week & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  10. Hi all! Ombud ~ just wanted to say I have been retired since Feb 2007. In Oct 2006, when I joined Cruise Critic that was what was on my mind. Turned out to be a poor choice of name! Lovely day up here so we had Church outside again. We won't be able to do that too much longer I imagine. Have a good week & stay safe! ~ Jo ~😊 't
  11. Hi all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. I think it's normal to feel down in this situation, so many of our hopes dashed, not being able to be out with people etc. I should have just got back from a MSC TA cruise or NYC & looking forward to a Canada cruise in about 2 weeks but we know what that's about!! Jan ~ WTG being down! I hear you about motivation!! I'm up 0.2 since last week but down 1.8 since the beginning of the month so not too bad. I was dreading stepping on the scale today as I've gone over my calorie count on MFP a couple of times this week. I have to do better as I want to be thinner for my Feb cruises if they go! Mel ~ wishing you many happy healthy returns of the day. Happy birthday!🎂 Have a nice weekend & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
  12. Hi all! Sid ~ thanks for resurrecting this thread. I was looking for it yesterday as I've just booked Horizon for Nov 2021. Sorry you won't be able to celebrate your birthday on a cruise like you usually do. Let's hope we're all able to sail soon! ~ Jo ~ 😊 silent tribe member
  13. Hi all! Just popping in to wish Jan many happy healthy returns of the day. Eat cake, it's your birthday!🎂🍷 Today's weight again less than yesterday's!! Wonder why that is. Have a nice weekend & stay safe. I'm going to meet my friend for lunch at a restaurant then go for a walk so hope one offsets the other!!😉 ~ Jo ~ 😊
  14. HI all! mafig ~ keeping your secret, lol. I watched it the next day & thought it was okay. I liked that it went faster without them having to go upstairs. That was quite the dress Tyra wore to open the show. I also don't think that red & pink go together, my Mom always told me so!😉 See you next week? Is it on Tuesday, or both Mon & Tues.? ~ Jo ~ 😊
  15. HI all! Belle ~ thanks for starting the thread. Yes that's right, our Thanksgiving is sooner than yours, only 25 days away. I'm thinking more long term & want to have lost my 20 lbs by the cruise I'm hoping to go on at the beginning of February. I'm down 0.4 lbs this week but just under 170 so am happy about that. melmar02 ~ enjoy your day at the Zoo,! I'd be excited to go too! It'd be nice to go somewhere other than the usual places in Town!! Have good day & stay safe. ~ Jo ~ 😊
