I decided to get on that scale--I was going to add the adjective dreaded, but remember I said only positive words here!!!!! Forget that word. Anyway, was very happy when I saw a 2# loss!!!!! I am on my way, and you can be too!! I did make something chocolate over the weekend, but the low fat brownies I made were from a box--and instead of the oil and eggs, I substituted fat free sour cream and egg whites--2 egg whites to one egg. They are so good and I ate one very slowly!!!!! Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my blog. For some reason, I am not getting notification of any emails and today I got Spark mail and it came up on the subject line--(no subject)........and there was nothing there........must be a glitch somewhere--it is enough to make me grab something sinful, but then again, I really do NOT have anything junky to grab, so I will see what happens, and yes, I did email them twice, and I see other people are having the same problems. Peaks and valleys--as in weight loss. I am at a peak right now and very happy about it!! I came across this quote:
Attitude determines altitude!!!! (unknown)
I hope you all choose well today--remember visualize a new you. WE CAN DO IT!!!!

I was lector at mass last night; one did not show up, so I needed to be the reader for the 2nd reading. It really SPOKE to me, and I hope it does to you as well. It is not too long. It is from Philippians 4:6-9.
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard yourhearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. Then the God of peace will be with you.
I just had to share that with you and hope it touches some of you. We all can be healthy and look ahead to how you want to look and feel--even a month from now. Where do you want to be??
I wish you all a healthy day. I am CHOOSING to be! It is our choice.

WOW--is this possible--day four and not going crazy yet???? Usually by now, I have succumbed and grabbed something totally out of my plan, but that's right, I really do not have anything in the house that is "junky"!!! SO that is good!!!! Really, though, I have these wonderful crisp, tart apples--MI apples--they are so good with a smidge of peanut butter. I bought pears, love those, carrots, tomatoes, and I am already feeling better as far as the energy levels go. Junk brings you down--I am done with that.
We are going out for dinner after mass tonight, but I will NOT let that deter me into eating right. I am focuses--I see that #25 in front of me and have post its around the house with motivating little sayings and hung up the dress my daughter gave to me that is too big for her, and it is a pretty evening dress!!!
Here is my positive thought for today on my stand up devotional:
To every disadvantage there is a corresponding advantage. W. Clement Stone
I wishing you all to make healthy choices this weekend--think of how you want to look and FEEL a month, two months from now!!! WE CAN DO IT!!!

OK, it is only 8:10, and I have the whole day--to be good to me!!!! Thought I was going say something negative huh, like "mess up"!!! I am so done with messing up!!!!! OK, enough negativity!! There was a meeting at my church last night, and there were these cute little Halloween cookies and those cute little pumpkin candies, and I walked right past them and got my decaf coffee!!!! I felt so empowered.
Doggone this back. I am having a treatment this morning; my chiro. assured me, if he could not "fix" me, he would refer me to a neurologist, so for now I am trusting him.
I found this quote from Fred Rogers, you know, Mr. Roger's in the neighborhood. Here it is:
What really matters is not just winning, but helping other pople to win too!
I liked that--isn't that what Spark is all about--helping each other! I know all of you who comment on my blog is really helping me to be centered, and I appreciate all your words of encouragement! Have a blessed day!!

I slept pretty late this morning--8:30--guess I needed that! I probably slept so well cuz I wasn't stuffed!!! With my cut off time of 8:00 (and I was not hungry) that probably helped when I went to bed at 10PM!! I feel good and I am exiced--going to try to do some extra exercise today--just wished my back was not out of whack and will see my chir. tomorrow--visit #8. I do feel he is making a difference! I love this quote from my daily stand up devotional:
Lord, all of life is this way----a series of
choices: good or bad, right or wrong, healthy
or harmful........Lord I ask for discernment to
make the right choices and determination to
do what I have identified as the best for me.
I will need your help, Lord!!!!!
Make the right choice today too!!!!!!!!
