Wow, it's been a while since I've done this, but since I am rapidly approaching my beginning weight, I need to do something to put on the brakes. So, I started logging my food again. I tried just writing it down, but I get lazy and I do a better job of it on here. While 'people watching' at the motorcycle rally last week, I was pointing out the overweight (I just can't use that word 'obese') people to my husband, and I would tell him which ones were 'sitters', by the way their weight accumulated at the top of their hips. Been noticing that on myself since I went on summer vacation a few weeks ago. The job is active enough to keep that at bay, but now that I'm off for the summer, I seem to be sitting(and gaining) a lot more, in fact, most of the time. If it weren't for living in the upstairs of my house, I probably wouldn't get much exercise at all. Back to logging my exercise, too. So, here I go again, starting over. I was feeling so depressed last night, God showed me that today is a new day, a new beginning, what happened yesterday is over and done. Forget it. So I got up this morning and started over...Thank you, Lord, for another new day...

My summer has not been what I had hoped, but my dad is recovering nicely. My friends had a wonderful time at the rally we had to miss. My daughter is learning to be the strong wonderful daughter of God I knew she always was. And my husband is back to being healthy and strong again so I really have nothing to complain about. It's time for me to go back to work and this last year off has had its rough spots. I didn't know how to handle not working 40 hours a week and it threw me into a tailspin so I regained 30 pounds. I finally got a grip and lost 10 of that. In a few weeks I will start a new job, one I have no experience in whatsoever. Yeah, I'm nervous about that but I can do all things through Christ. I'm sure there'll be more trials ahead but if I can just remember to put on my armor, I should be just fine...

Today was not a good "food" day. I had bread, bread and bread. Then for a snack I had.....BREAD!!! Tomorrow, my affair with bread is over. I will be back on track and the only bread in this house will be Bob's. I can't believe how sluggish I feel when I eat so much bread. And I only eat whole grain.
So, it's back to the protein. I have to go to the grocery store after we walk tomorrow. County Market has this thing where you get 5 packages of meat for $19.99 and every package is priced over 5 dollars or more, so it's a bargain but the kind of meat varies. This week I'm hoping for some chicken breasts and pork chops, maybe even a steak. Now, if I just knew how to cook...
Seriously, I know how to cook, I'm just out of practice. You cannot come from a family of eight, being the eldest daughter, and not know how to cook. I've just gotten so used to opening a package or slamming a sandwich together, I may have forgotten what real cooking is...

You know how sometimes you say you're trying but you aren't really? Well, I am now! This last week I was doing really well, focusing on what I was eating, when I was eating and getting more exercise than I have since I left VF. But guess what? The scales haven't moved... So I'll do it again this week. I have faith that God knows the desires of my heart and one of them is to succeed in getting rid of this excess baggage that I've allowed myself to regain. If I am faithful to do my part, God will be faithful to give me the victory.

So I gave up the scales last week and I think I'm doing fine without them. I don't think I've even been tempted once to get on them. That's pretty good for someone who hopped on them several times a day. I just don't care anymore about numbers. As long as my jeans fit. I would be very angry if I had to go up another size!!! Honestly, today I woke up feeling a little thinner but I didn't check to see so, on with my day. I think I'm more aware of what I'm putting in my mouth and it hasn't all been good, but I am aware. I went too many years mindlessly eating. I won't go back to that...
