I am truly blessed! I have my family and friends who are wonderful. It has been my SFs lately who have offered advice, questioned me, supported and encouraged me. It truly helps when people have gone or are going through the same thing you are. I am beginning to realize that this whole calorie thing may stall me for a quite a while until I figure it out (feel free to hit me on the head with that fact over and over again!). If I didn't have all of you here, I probably would have given up since I haven't seen the fastest scale results. You are trying to teach me patience. Just warning you, I, and most other people in my life, have tried to teach me patience, but I have been a slow learner for 58 years. Your outpourings of concern encouragement, etc. have been truly heartwarming. s!!!

I am not sure I am "making" my day ridiculously amazing, but really just noticing things that make the day amazing! Examples of this just yesterday: husband texting me for no reason at all , sitting at my desk yesterday getting ready for summer school and realizing that I am doing exactly what I was meant to do, , having a professional conversation with a woman who used to be my son's girlfriend in HS and being able to help her with teaching resources, having saved enough calories (even fat!) to have a piece of pizza, talking with a friend for the first time since school let out, getting tickets for a musical show, sitting down after coming home and listening to the breeze and my wind chimes, over 10,000 steps again yesterday, getting into the car and on the radio is "Lean on Me," and my husband taking the time to continue to watch 2 episodes of MASH every night with me since I am trying to work through all 11 seasons. There are lots more that I can't think of right now, but it is "ridiculously amazing" how many of these moments are in your day! I am truly grateful!

Before I head out the door, I need a plan. No, not a plan for eating, nor a plan for getting my water in, nor a plan for exercise time. I need a plan for this:
Imagine what your life would be like if you set out to do this every day! Every day is amazing and, in the rush of things, we sometimes forget to notice that.
What if we all took the time to notice and be thankful for all things in our lives? Notice that I didn't say just the good things, but the challenges as well.
Have a ridiculously amazing day!

I was right. Number wasn't the way I would have liked it to be...up 1.5 pounds. I used the Fitbit to check calories burned during exercise, so I know I was closer than just guessing like before. I always ate 1200-1500 calories with a good balance. The new tracker says I wasn't eating enough, but I didn't believe it. Yesterday it said I should have eaten between 1700 and 2200 calories based on how much i worked out. I guess I am going to try to do what it says. I did eat 1600 yesterday. OK, OK, we will see! This does not change a thing about my belief in the process, but I do hate not being able to get the right answer quickly. It must be the teacher in me!
OK, my big problem was deciding to live a healthy life. My little problem is getting the scales to reflect it. If I don't solve the little problem, it doesn't matter. I will still be living as healthy as I possibly can be!
