I'm really <BR> trying to watch what I eat. Not totally <BR> successful but giving it a college try. <BR> <BR> I gained 3 #'s this Thursday at my TOPS <BR> meeting <em>198</em> That's kind of <BR> sad after losing 3 weeks in a row. But <BR> the next 2 weeks will be better. <BR> <BR> I am going away shortly, for 4 - 5 days & <BR> will do my best to keep eating at bay. <BR> <BR> My exercise is hit or miss.

I did so-so on my eating. <BR> Watched most of the day. <BR> My granddaughter, Brianna, turned 7 today and <BR> wanted to go to Golden Coral for dinner, which we <BR> did. Don't prefer to go at nights because it's much <BR> more expensive, but it's her BD so that's what we did. <BR> <BR> She liked all her presents. <BR> <BR> She ate a big salad. She likes salads and that is a good thing. <BR> <BR> Took a 60 min walk in the morning, intention...

UGH! <BR> <BR> Why can't we just keep control all the <BR> time??? <BR> <BR> Anyway, tomorrow my granddaughter will <BR> be 7 and she chose to eat at Golden Coral. <BR> SO there we go. I have been thinking of how <BR> to control my eating, I KNOW I CAN DO IT, I've <BR> done it Many Times in the Past. <BR> <BR> It's a state of mind. <em>521</em> Sat, 29 Mar 2014 22:05:32 EST Monday 3/24/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655167 Monday 3/24/12 <BR> <BR> Let's make today Awesome! <BR> Let's do Great things today! <BR> Let's help each other succeed! <BR> Let's get out of our chair & dance! <BR> Let's give of ourselves to others! <BR> <BR> What else can you add to the list? <BR> <BR> HAPPY SPARKING!
