Well much to my surprise the scales show about 189 this morning. It kind of hovered between 189 and 199. It's not as good as I could have done, but still so happy to see the 180 area! I can't believe it.
I'm taking a comp day today and my friend and I are going shopping for a dress for my daughters wedding. I'm really not looking forward to trying on clothes. I hope I find something that looks good. I wish I would have started dieting much earlier, but still 19 lbs. isn't bad. I guess I'm just nervous.
Yesterday was our churches homcoming Sunday and of course we had pot luck. It wasn't terribly hard. I've been eating about what I want, trying to stay with more veggies and salads. Just eating much less. But two people brought cake with my name on it. Three I guess. One guy, he's like a grandpa, his wife is in the hospital. He came in with a piece of cake on a plate, fork and napkins in a zip lock. He handed it to me with a great big smile and said that a niece had a baby shower at the hospital so that his wife could be there and he brought me cake. He wasn't doing it to be mean, he doesn't have a clue that I'm trying to lose. He just thought of me. I was so touched. I made a big deal out of it and thanked him so much. Then another gal brought her famous "twinky cake" She know's that is one of my favorites... She made sure to tell me several times. So I made a big deal out of that too. THEN another gal brought a beautiful german chocolate cake and gave it to me. I don't know what the deal was with cake yesterday but it's nice that people like me I guess. So I made sure they saw me with cake on my plates. It made them so happy. I was able to take just a little bite from each and I snuck the rest in the trash. I brought my zipped locked cake home. I had a little of that last evening. If Dale doesn't eat it I will have to throw it away. I thought about why they thought about me. I'm really going to start watching how I'm eating. It sure opened my eyes. That's a good thing.
My friend at work has lost 203.6 lbs. She put it on face book last night. Wow! She is looking amazing. I keep telling her that she is my inspiration! She is awesome.
Okay, another beginning today. I can do this. Shopping with a great friend. Lots of fun today. I'm not going to stress. I'm going to try my hardest to just enjoy the day. GOD IS SOOOO GOOD!!!

My scales say I'm up a pound this week. I've been so sick this last week and now Dale has it. I stopped taking my diet meds. so that I could take my anti-biotic. I was afraid of how they would interact. I looked it up on the internet and it advised against taking them together. I couldn't stay home from work, so I struggled through it. I'm better so now I'm starting back on them today. My head is full and I am still blowing my nose all the time. But no fever and chills. Thank the Lord! I didn't eat that much, so it's got to be water gain. It will be OK. Dale missed church yesterday he was so sick. That's the first time in years and years that he's missed. I can't even remember the last time. I left him in bed this morning. He was some better last night. It's bad stuff already and it's only Sept. I hate to see what the rest of Winter will bring. Maybe we are getting it out of the way early this year.
Friday night a few ladies came over and we made mints for the wedding. I had Pizza Hut deliver and had a good time. I felt so nasty though I didn't really enjoy it much. I didn't make many of them, just put them away as they were coming out of the molds. I wish I would have taken more control. I may get more fixins and make a few more they way I wanted. I think Kristen will be fine with what we have. I think we've made way too many. Oh well. Better than not enough.
I'm back to tracking my eating this week and hope it goes better. I'm only down about 15 lbs. so far. But, hey 15 more and boy it will be great!!!
It's going to be a good week. I'm determinded to make it so. Our ladies started a "Prayer Journal Journey" on Wed. nights. I've been creating the lessons and finding Utube video's for that. I am praying that the Lord will guide everything that I put together for them. I hope it will make a difference. It would be nice to make a difference!!!
I can't wait to see all of my grandkids next month. I know it's Kristen's wedding and it should be all about them, but it's also about seeing the kids for me. It's been two years since I've seen two of my grandkids. They are just so busy and the other parents are more important and closer. It makes a difference that way. I have to admit that I'm having a hard time not being frusterated as they are only going to stay one night. Other things are too important to get back too. Maybe we were like that once. I try to think back and wonder if that's where they got it. I don't remember a time like that, but who knows. I'll take what I can get and be happy with it I guess. Life is too short!!

Only one pound this week. But I'm feeling horrible. I have sinus infection. Started anti biotics. Taking NyQuil. It's only supposed to last a few hours, but it stay's with me until about noon. Two days of it now. I have to go to work. No choice. Too much drama if I miss. It's not worth that.
Hope this week goes OK. Poor Katie has to be with boring people. She will go home Wed.
Boy do I wish I could go back to bed!!

I'm down another 2 lbs. I've lost 14lbs. now. My gosh it's great to step on the scale and it isn't over 200 now. I'm beginning to feel good. I'm stressing over work and church stuff, but praying, praying. We have Buisness meeting Wed. night. Praying hard that nothing bad is coming up. Katie will be staying with us for a week. Grandma is going to visit her family out of state.
I'm working on a "Prayer Journey" study for our Wed. night ladies group. We are going to create journals and get into some serious prayer study and work it.
Kristen and Brent came Fri. night and Sat. Then Sis, Wayne, & Randy came yesterday. They are leaving today sometime. It's great to see them.
So, another week. God is so good.

I am 2 more lbs. down this Monday morning. I'm beginning to feel it in my clothes now. I'm so very excited. I know I won't be a size 10 or even a 14 for our daughters wedding, but I will be better than I am now. I've got until the end of Sept. before I go shopping for a "mother of Bride dress". I am not looking forward to that. But will do it anyway. It's my baby!!! Besides that, all of our kids and grandkids will be staying at the same hotel/pool with us. It will be the first time we will all be together in one place for several years. I just hope everyone behaves themselves. I'm praying hard that there won't be problems. I've already told my kids that if they can't get along, they have to go back to their rooms and let me enjoy my grandkids. I've missed so much time with them.
Work is still really hard and stressful. But I've decided all I can do is the best in my position and pray for and stay away from the rest. It's stressful when someone else is bucking for your job.
Church is both stressfuland joyful. We have a couple of disgruntled people, but we have three new people and baptisms coming up, so the Lord is still working.
Life is good, Life is short, so I need to remember to love, laugh, and let the rest go over me. I'm depending on the protection of the Lord and His wisdom. My prayer is that His love, knowledge and wisdom be in me. One day, one moment at a time.
