Heading out to my family reunion today in Jamestown NY. We are driving up and back it is about 4 + hours one way. We usually stay the night but too busy here this year.

Blessing to all of you this Sunday.

It has been a full day and I am tired, and a very large part of me wanted to just lay down on the couch when I got home. We had walked with the grandkids (kind of a stroll) garage saling over a community for at least 60 minutes. So after we dropped the kids off at the library to Mom, we went out for lunch. So back to the urge to lied down on the couch and veg out. emoticon

The good news is: II made myself do a dvd exercise indoor walkingI borrowed from the Library by Kathy Smith called the matrix. It had walking, marching, lots of arm movements which you could do with or without weights. I did without as it hurts my neck too much and I become off kilter. Anyway, it was the first time I did it. I stayed with her for 20 of the 30 minutes and I was a glowing (perspiration) emoticon

My ankle has been hurting a bit since I have gotten up to 3 km at once, so I have been walking a bit before work, about 10-15 minutes; about 30-40 minutes at lunch and then sometimes after work too. I believe it is the same amount of km., just chopped up so not so much of a strain on my ankle.

I may have to modify my goal to walk 5K by my birthday on August 10th. I was wanting to do all 5Km at once, like I did before I broke my ankle. But I will be happy if I work my way up to 5Km in a day, chopped up into three walks. Anyway, if you figure out the success I have had since May 2013, I would say I am 3/4 the way to my goal. Not giving up, just modifying it. I don't want to push it too much and not be able to walk at all. yipes!

So now I have my goal song in my head that I sing to myself when I want to veg out and it is, "I like to move it, move it. I like to move it! emoticon

Saturday and sunshine... WooHoo!! I don't like the dark days. Finished making the lamp shade covers for our bedroom. A few more things are getting done each day.

Good to hear your daughter is out and getting around. She is in my prayers. It is harder to have a leg problem than an arm in a sling You really can't get anywhere if a leg is not working well. After the first knee replacement that was not right I lived 2 years with pain. The second doctor (in Pittsburgh PA) took that knee out and put in another one and that has been doing great. If I hadn't gone for the second surgery, I am sure that other leg would have shortened my life.

Packing for the reunion tomorrow. I am not sure if I wil be able to get to the computer. We will see. It is about 4 + hours drive.

Another beautiful day! Our July weather has been unusual, but I like it emoticon
VBS time at church...always fun!
My daughter was able to go to work today for the first time in 3 months. It was nice for her to be out more. On top of that she had physical therapy and volunteered for VBS. She is wore out, but enjoyed getting out. I appreciate your prayers for her; she will have a second surgery on her leg Aug. 4 and she is anxious about stepping backwards so her healing can move forward.

sounds like everyone is having a busy summer! My hair is naturally blonde, so going red was a fun thing to try! Hope that everyone will realize just how much God really loves you today. Vicky, sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. As we all do what God sets before us to do, let's remember that He is our Strength and Refuge. I will be praying for all of you. Blessings.

Where did this week go. Praying for all f you in our group. We all seem to face something. I know God doesn't send more than we can bare but it sure gets close.

Finishing up on home improvements today. This is a careful day for food choices as I have lunch with friends. It is one friends birthday. We have been having coffee on the first Friday of the month now for over 30 years. (or some Friday) We started meeting before going to our schools in the morning to work. Friends are wonderful support.

Wishing you a good day.

Oh! Vicky I am so sorry. I understand. It has bee a year since we had to put Sammy to sleep. We still have his two brothers. He had lymphoma. It breaks my heart to have the animals suffer. You and your family are in my prayers.

Ann thanks for the note. Yes yesterday was great!! She was happy with me and I told her what I was doing. I know I am moving slowly but the scale is going down. My next big time will be when I weigh in August and measure at Curves.

Prayers for your daughter Mellie. May God place his healing power on her.

Been a bad day. Not food-wise. My dachshund got away and was hit by a car. Took him to the vet but had to have him put down. I'm heartbroken. I'll see ya'll in a few days, okay?

Happy Happy birthday and at 50 you are still a spring chicken! I will be 63 in August....woops just had a type that I had to correct, since I am not 623 years of age.

I love red hair too -- In fact my hair was carrot red until I was an adult. Now I just make it that way more like a medium auburn - my husband also had really red hair and he still has a teeny bit in his mustache, but like Vicky's husband he is turning kind of a salt and pepper colour in his hair. he is still loveable though of course!

We go on vacation mode next week and that is always a time for more exercise but usually to stave off the more eating mode.

Sue: I can just sense the excitement you had when your doctor saw you were down 7 lbs. since the last time you were there. You must have got a pat on your back. Good to hear that all is well with your blood pressure. Just go to your meetings and birthdays with a plan. There will be something there at all these events that you can eat. Sometimes I even eat a little something before I go so that I am not hungry, I pray that you will hear that still small voice telling you to go this way, not that - yup it works on big things but also He cares about the things we struggle with - even food! You will do well. Keep on keeping on - we can all do it.

hi Mellie:

What an honour it is to help someone recover from an illness or an injury and we do it willingly for our loved ones. Take care of yourself as well, I know from experience it can be a bit hard on the caregiver. Take a bit of time for yourself and you know what don't worry about the dairy queen treat. Sounds like you stayed within your calorie range. Sending up prayers for your daughter and her surgery - wisdom to the medical people, angels all around and healing from on high for your daughter. Be blessed!

I don't recall if I ever really introduced myself before since I have been away for some time, but you can always take a peek at my sparkpage. I am taking things slow this summer caring for my 20 year old daughter who is recovering from an April car wreck. We received news today that she will need a second surgery on her leg, minor this time. I would appreciate your prayers for her. Yesterday she requested ice cream from DQ after working really hard on a therapy exercise. I decided to join her, but only with a min blizzard. I am tracking my food and wow that mini blizzard was almost 500 calories! I had know idea it was so high! I had eaten light that day and stayed within my calorie range, but it was eye opening. (yes, I know poor nutrition.) I will be passing on the blizzard next time. emoticon

Good morning. This was especially good as I was 7 pounds less from my last visit to the doctor. I didn't loose the amount I had hoped during these last few weeks On the doctors office scales I was at 159 so that is really only 4 pounds during these weeks. Blood pressure and everything was good.

I still plan to work my way slowly down to 150 that is on my driver's license. :)

You are all doing so much this summer. We are still working on that room. I didn't get the lamp shades finished yet and my husband is still finishing the top of my dresser.

This week I need to pray for strength. We ate at a Bob Evans yesterday after playing at the nursing home in Waynesburg PA, tonight is Kiwanis and we eat at that meeting. Tomorrow is a meeting with friends at a lunch and my friends birthday lunch is Thursday. Sometimes I just want to stay home.

Prayers for all of you We need Gods strength to stay focused. Vicky I hope you are better today. I have thought about detox but my body is already sensitive to things when I do too much of a change. I will have to read about it. We don't have a vacation but these are no
music programs to play for the next two weeks. That is like a vacation to me.

I LOVE red hair! In fact, I married a red head...except now it's all white!

Not going to count my calories today. I had a massive migraine yesterday, along with all the nausea and sensitivity, so I barely ate or drank anything. Today I'm just going to concentrate on getting my fluid level back up and eating very little. Stomach is still a little sensitive. Headache is like a shadow...

The dog kennel is finished and Bob & Nathaniel did a great job. Still need to put in the automatic feeders.

Have a great Tuesday, all...

Good to see everyone doing well,,My internet has been down so I'm only able to post when I am at work and I get busy talking so it just doesn't happen. I started a detox carb diet its for ten days by Dr.Hyman-anyone hear of it? and I am doing T25 again and walking the dog when hubby's home, she pulls alot but she is getting better..We just got a new pup really cute its actually my sisters dog his name is Boston-so we do have a house full,,lol
We went up to the camp site this weekend and had fun in the pond and I was able to watch my carbs except for a handful of pretzels and a smore..
I do find myself hungrier but I guess that will pass or i have to eat more veggies;p
We also went to legoland in Somerville-that was fun too,,planning on going up to the campsite again and maybe we are going to watch a movie-our local theater is offering free movies on Thursdays=-) This Thursday is The Croods and we also have been going to the library to catch up on our reading--Have a Great Day!! emoticon

Hey, all. Just sitting here with my morning cup of coffee, waiting to leave and go up to Holly's. We're building a dog kennel at the back of her garage, so when she needs a break from her dog, and mine when he stays with her, they'll be okay outside. They'll have room to run around, and access to part of the garage, in case it rains, and we'll be putting in automatic feeders, just in case we have to be gone more than a day.

Looks like it's gonna be a nice day here in Pa...

Hello Everyone: To answer Vicky's question, no big plans - probably day trips. I do want to rescue two trees in our back yard they need to be braced as they are bending over, and work on the front yard - rose bush looks like it has arms waving in the wind, the bush at the front needs a haircut too. I would like to go swimming at the neighbourhood Athletic Club - at least a couple of times. We get a discount at work and can go all day for $10.00 including all the machines, classes and pool. Well I am off to work. Be blessed everyone!

I have lost this twice now. Yes we need to be careful on the road. I worry with all the rain thre are so many accidents from the slippery road. We take the organ to Waynesburg Pa to play one of the nursing homes there. It is supposed to be sunny Monday and Tuesday. Then we will have storms again.

Wishing everyone a good week.

I saw two accidents this weekend and actually got there before the police at one site. So this made me think about praying for travel mercies for all of my friends and family. So, in the name of Jesus, I pray for protection along the roads this summer when we are all out and about. Wisdom, quick reactions and safe driving to you one and all. We are all so very important to our families and I remember that we are hidden with Christ in God.

This weekend went way to fast. Since it was rainy at one point and humid at another all my walking this weekend occurred in two big malls. I have been walking at lunch time to for about l/2 hour each day.

Well, be blessed today and have a great week ahead. One more week and I have another two weeks vacation - can't wait!

Vicky you must not be too far from where I live. We are expecting storms here this morning. it is dark and cooler today. We have a lot of dark days here. All winter it is dark. We have had more rain this year. I hope you are in a sunny place and can enjoy the weekend. .

I am on count down to Tuesday. That is my Dr. appointment. and I hope to have a few pounds off. Then it is stay on the plan until I have reached the weight on my driver's license. There are a few pit falls in my path. Today is a Bridal shower for my friends daughter in law to be. The wedding is in a few weeks. Next week there are two lunches to tempt me. I have prayed to stay the course.

There are still things to do in the house. The guest room is looking good. I cleaned the windows inside and out and washed the curtains and drapes. They are all back up. During the semesters at West Virginia University, we have a friend that stays with us. That is her room. The days are going fast and WVU will be starting again. She lives in the Pittsburgh area and is a professor here. She moved back to the family home after her parents were both dead. She has a downs sister that is her responsibility.

Take care and God bless you all.

Great to see you, Gary! I was hoping you'd stop by!

It's rainy here today. No motorcycle ride for me. Weighing in tomorrow, but I fell off the wagon last night with some cake & ice cream. It's the first sweet stuff I've had in such a long time. Probably only since July 4th, but it seems like a long time. I feel so much better without sugar in my life...

Praying you all have a wonderful, calorie burning day!

I'm up early today. My husband and grandson will be leaving for the Rally in Erie soon. Just me and Miss Grace today, my granddaughter. But she sleeps most of the day...

My knee is feeling better every day. Amazing how good you feel when you lose a few pounds.

It's Friday and we have all made it through another week. Congratulations to all of us. We are a good team. Vicky and Susan, I told my husband this total house cleaning was my fall cleaning and when we are done that is it until spring. The fine brown dust from having the floor done seemed to get everywhere.

Curtains done!! Put lining on too. I am thinking I may try to make a new bed spread. Looking much better.

I have been good with the eating part and my nutrition tracker helps me stay with in the right range. I weigh in again on Monday. I know I will need to keep going to really drop the 10 pounds. I had never put the eight tracker on before so now A\I see that very day. That keeps me on track too.

It's hard enough to get the every day cleaning done around here, let alone any major cleaning. My grandkids are here Monday thru Friday while their mom works, then weekend gets here and there are usually ministry things to do. And, Susan, I know what you mean about 2 people and the laundry! Where does it all come from?

I'm down another pound! The lowest I've been in about 5 years! This is HARD!

Well, let's all take a few minutes to relax just for us today. We deserve it!

Today I hope to make new curtains for the window in our bedroom. It looks like AI have nothing scheduled to take me out of the house. That is always a good day. There are few days that are like that. The guest room is almost done. floor, light fixtures, and all bedding are all clean. Now it is windows and drapes. It will keep me busy and not into food I don't need. :) That is a good thing.

I so agree about the housework! I am usually so busy doing the things that need to be done each and every day that it's too long before I do the deeper cleaning, like the tub or the oven.

At least I can keep up with our laundry, but with a two person family I am always amazed at how MUCH of it we generate!!

God bless you, Susan

I only have a little time today so here I am again. We had a good day yesterday playing music at the nursing home. One lady got up and danced around the room when we had a Polka playing. Many sang with us. Today I need to clean out the guest room where we have been while our room floor was done House work never ends.

Have a good Wednesday and if we stay focused we can do this.

Hi! I have been at Curves yesterday and today but the scale only went down 1 pound so I really have to watch. Last wee and all the company didn't do my any good.

Ann, sounds like the birthday was a success. That is so nice.
Vicky I hope you can drop a few. I think my fat just likes me too well. I like the idea of 5 veggies a day. I have finally just fixed vegetables for ME. My husband will only eat green beans, corn, and peas cooked. He will eat more raw in a salad. I haven't told him that the stuff that looks like cucumber is really Zucchini.

We are slowly getting our bedroom back in place. I really want to redo the top of my dresser. It is only faded on one side but with the new floor it shows up. Today my music group is playing at an nursing home in PA. Pt. Marion Manor. We are then going to one of the members homes to eat. She lives in Masontown, PA. This will be a good day but I have to watch what I eat.

Saying a prayer for all of you. God bless my friends.

Good morning, everyone! So nice to see so many posts!

I wonder why they are advertising Bob Evans Strawberry Supreme Sweet & Stacked Hotcakes on my comment page? That's just not right! LOL!!!

I've stayed within my calorie range so far this week. Yeah, I know it's only Tuesday...but I really would like to lose a few more before I leave for rally next week.

I love to hear about the good things you all are doing for yourselves. You deserve it! You're worth it! So many time we get caught up in everyday life and forget to take time to do nice things for ourselves.

By the way, on another thread, we have a "5 veggie a day" challenge going on, if anyone else would like to join us. Just drop by and list your veggies. It's not as easy as you might think. I've already punked out a couple times. Which reminds me, I gotta go get that veggie mix out of the freezer...

Have a lovely day, all...

Hello Everyone:

Hubby had a great birthday dinner - he had a rib, steak and shrimp combo with baked potato and coleslaw. So much food he got to take some home. I had surf and turf salad. A huge salad with grilled shrimp skewer with red pepper and onion on the skewer and several slices of steak. Red wine vinagrette on the side and I left half of it. Yay. No potato or rice but I had a couple of slices of a warm bread. Terry liked his presents but he was kind of down because at first it seemed that no one from the family was gonna call him and wish him birthday, then everybody did call or text towards the end of the evening. He kept saying it didn't bother him if people forgot but you should have seen his face when his grandkids called from one hour away and sang happy birthday. His brother had called twice while we were out and called a third time, two texts and an email from his sister in Muskogee....yup she is a transplanted okkee from Muskogee!

Hello everyone! In case you are wondering, my name is Rose. I am getting my hair colored for my birthday on July 16th, so that on my birthday (the 18th) I will be a new woman! It does not look like I will reach my goal, but I thank you all for your support! May God bless each of us today as we continue on our journeys!

Hi, ladies, just wanted to pop in and say hello.
I am off from work today so I'm going to the gym.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you better.

I went to get an official haircut before my daughter's wedding a few months ago, but otherwise I just hack at it myself, LOL. I actually do a pretty good job! I dye my own hair, too.

God bless you, Susan

Bob cuts his own hair, too. He doesn't have much anymore but his beard more than makes up for it! My red haired man is now all white haired. My hair is poker straight, and all the same length, so it's not hard to cut. I cannot wear it short, short. I never could, because I don't like how it looks on me. I wish I could...

Nothing much going on for me this week, but Bob and our grandson, Nathaniel, are heading to Erie later this week for a motorcycle rally up there. It will be Nathaniel's first one...

Scales are the same but I'm carrying some fluid so will probably have a loss in a couple of days...

Monday and where did last week go?? Well, we slept in our own bed in our bedroom with the NEW floor. It was sooo nice. I just crashed. Now to get the rest of the stuff in there. On my page of pictures I jsut added 3 that show the floor we found and the new floor.

I would never let my husband cut my hair. I do cut his hair and keep him trimmed. He might do an okay job. I don't think I will ask him though. The best hair stylist I ever had was a fellow. My hair is very curly and unruly so if it is cut too short it frizzes up.

Last week took it's toll and I am only down one pound today on my scales at home. I will weigh in on Wed. this week at Curves. We have too much to do to finishe putting things in the room.

Starting a new week. I hope we can all have a good one.

482YIELDNOT How sweet of you....I am excited and plan on losing even more. By the way, it is amazing corresponding with someone from Scotland. My ancestors - back about four generations came from England and from Wales. But my parents were both born and raised and lived in Montreal and their parents and their parents before them. My mom and Dad moved to Southern Ontario when my Dad was looking for work and followed his two older brothers from Montreal to Southern Ontario.

Vicky oh that is so neat that your hubby can cut your hair and it is also neat that you have a plan about not colouring your hair. It is your hair, you should do what you want to do. My husband has salt and pepper hair and it looks so good on him. I get white hair at my temples and at the back of my neck but the rest is not so to me it looks like my hair line starts about 2 inches in from the side of my head and it looks really dumb. Every now and then I let it go to see what is up. Probably when it is more white or grey I will do the same thing. (P.S. I see the spell check does not like the "u" in colouring but that is the way we spell it in Canada. Oh well! Be blessed on your trip!

Sue; My I feel rejuvenated. I did colour my own hair close to my own colour when I was a kid, kind of medium auburn, then got it cut and got the senior rate. Then off to redeem my gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure. I got my toenails done in a brownish red colour and my fingernails done in a neutral kind of a pink that you can't notice at first blush because it is so close to my skin colour. But I feel beautiful, thanks for asking.

Hey to everyone: My hubby has his 62nd birthday tomorrow and I think we are gonna go to Tony Roma's Restaurant. I got him an Obus back and seat cushion for the van and two kinds of sauce, one is a bbq sauce from Vermont where we went for our honeymoon more than 20 years ago and the other is a Terryaki sauce for cooking. They both are low in calories so I am looking forward to some of his cooking creations.

Oh by the way, I got some really neat wrapping paper that has 1 Corinthians 13,4,7 &8 on it.

"Love is patient, Love is kind...It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails"

I think it is supposed to be for a wedding present, but I liked it - off white paper with gold lettering on it.

Be blessed everyone!

Ann, how was your spa day? It sounded great. Vicky you seem so busy and having fun too. The rally must be a good time..

We start Bible school for my church tonight and through Thursday. I am not sure where I am working but I will know this morning at church. God is good. I talked to my cousin and found out that his daughter is happy but not dating. She had a very bad experience with the past fiance His drinking was part of the problem along with other stuff.

Today is another busy day. We will try to get more put back into the bedroom this afternoon.

I finally got Bob to cut my hair off! It was halfway down my back again, and I've decided to stop coloring it, so it was looking kinda ugly. Now it looks just like it does in my profile pic, except it's lighter...and grayer. By the time I'm ready to cut it again, I should be almost totally gray. Not exactly ready to cheer about that, but I gotta let it go sometime.

Went for a short motorcycle ride this afternoon. We were planning on going for the whole day, but Bob found a problem with the bike last night and has been working on it all day. Good thing it's fixed. We leave for another rally in less than 2 weeks. This one is for CMA so the only ones being ministered to is us, and I'm so ready for it!

Gonna weigh in tomorrow...I'll let you know how I do...

Sue: Good to hear that you enjoyed your company and sounds like you held your own in the food dept. Today, is my day - I mean I am going to colour my hair this morning and get a hair cut right after. emoticon

emoticon Then I am going to get a manicure and a pedicure and use up the gift certificate my husband got me for Christmas. I think I will get this all done for about $25.00 including two tips. I am looking forward to doing some stationary bicycle today and maybe I will throw in some dancing too.

Be blessed everyone and have a great Saturday - it looks like a lovely one.

Good for you Ann. Congratulations. You can do this....

So far with company I have only eaten a couple ginger cookies and one half of a brownie. There is food around me all the time. After today I will be in safe ground. I hope to weigh in on Monday with some pounds off.

Today is music group at my house and they bring goodies so this is a fun but dangerous day.

I can barely hold my excitement because I want to do the dance of joy. I weighed in on Wednesday and lost four pounds which is over two weeks. Also I am now at 50.4 lbs lost. Yippee! And it seems silly, but .4 lbs. of that is new ground. So I have lost the 14 lbs. I gained when I broke my ankle and am looking forward to losing even more. Thank you Sparkfriends for your encouragement and support. I also would like to thank my friend at work who was my inspiration as she was successful in her weight loss which made me feel I also could do it. My journey is finally on a new ground adventure-all pounds lost from here on it is Undiscovered Territory!

Ah Ha the tracker is working again. It has put in all the days I thought I had missed.I didn't know that it stores 7 days of tracking. Wonderful.

I did well yesterday wit all the company. I have a good start today. The house is a clean as I could get it and the bedroom is still a work in progress. When the base boards are put up I think we can start moving in some of the furniture. Then my job wil really start.

Wednesday and hump day. Stay on track everyone. We can do this.

Tuesday and still the tracker is not picking up. I will check and send a note again.

I have been out in the yard to clean up these last few days and last night we had another storm. After the one storm pulled off the gutters I am so glad we had new ones put on all the way around the house. These storms have extremely high winds and blow everything. It looks like I wasn't even out there raking and cleaning up.

I have been good so far and hope to make it with the company coming. I have to keep busy.
I do not want to gain this week.

Everyone have a good week. I know you are all busy too. I appreciate each one of you. I run the prayer chain for my church and for the music group I am with. We are all so blessed. There are so many that need healing and support.

Liz: So sorry that the storm made your roof leak. Not a good deal at all. I sure know what it is like not to have ready funds to fix something. A long time ago when I was a landlady with a triplex (living in one part and renting out two apts.) I had a leak in the plumbing between the upstairs and the downstairs unit and I had to put on a homemade raincoat to go into my downstairs bathroom. It was a $500 plumbing bill which I HAD to get fixed. I prayed and got led to a kind plumber who let me pay about 1/2 of the bill and he fixed it. I paid the rest as quickly as I could but he was very much a godsend. I pray you find a way too. You must have been tired and frustrated with the cleanup. By the way, what is a pawsox game? Is that the name of the team? Congrats on losing pounds and yes, we are on our way all of us to sexy bodies what a concept! ha ha ha

Hello there THELOSER82: Problems with the amount of cereal I take at breakfast seems to creep up on me. I do love my cheerios. So sometimes, I use the small bowl that my grandkids eat out of to show me the real amount I should have. Maybe you need to weigh and/or measure. Or is it that you want cereal several times of the day???

Sounds like you are doing pretty good there almost half way there to your July goal. Just trying to meet a goal is exhilarating isn't it. And if and when you achieve it, it is almost too good to be true.

Hi Sue: I found difficulty in recording my food on sparkpeople several times in the last week. It made me nervous because I feel better when I write stuff down, but I survived. Enjoy your guests and doesn't it feel good to get rid of those bigger size clothes? By the way, I walked 1 km at the mall near my work right after work. We had supper then I walked 1.6 km after supper. Woo hoo, that feels good and I was perspiring pretty good when I was walking outside. emoticon Well I am a walking to a smaller person....watch me go!

Well, I just learned that the Sparkpeople computer is not working to track steps. I thought my piece in the computer was not working.

Thelooser82 you are doing great!! good for you at loosing so much.

I cleaned out my closet when I started to put clothes back in. I got rid of 2 big bags of clothes. Some were not worn much. I feel so good. I can not go back to the larger sizes. That is for sure. (That was just the summer clothes. Now I need to start on the winter clothes. I told my husband he can't put all the clothes back that he hasn't worn either.

We have company coming on Tuesday. Yesterday, Dave started to finish more of the room and mow the grass. I cleaned the yard and the windows in the living room and dining room. I have only dropped 2 pounds but that is a start. This will be the week of really careful planning. We have company through Thursday and so food will be all around me.

I haven't cleaned the porch yet that will have to be today. Where do the hours go??
Have a good week.

I'm between an 18 and a 20, but I've also worn a size 26, and don't ever plan on doing that again! I have 36 pounds to get to my first goal, then I'll probably reset it for another 20.

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

Congrats to everyone for all your efforts towards losing pounds and inches, gaining perspective and wisdom - I applaud you. I really enjoyed the Sparkpeople post on What the scale does not tell you. I think there were something like 55 things the scale does not tell you. It is just one measurement and not the end statement about you. Look at your compliments from people, the clothes that no longer fit, how much further you can walk without losing your wind, on and on it goes. I am glad to get weighed in as it helps me with something that I need, discipline and a commitment to a "thing or a process". To be honest with you, when my husband gave me a comment, upon returning to the car after dropping a cart off that I was pushing, he said, "Hey, your bum is getting smaller!" that beat the scale any old day!

Although I am close to losing 50 lbs., I probably have another 50 to lose....but I am not in the least bit discouraged. I think about the two boxes of clothes I have given away and today I picked out a sleeveless dress to wear to church but thought I better bring a jacket for the air conditioning there which can get kinda cold. I tried this jacket on, then that jacket on then another and they were all TOO BIG. Good thing I just bought a size smaller, in fashion jacket with NO shoulder pads at the Bibles for Mission store.

Before I started losing I wore a size 26 but that jacket is a size 20. So yes, I have a long way to go, but I am thoroughly enjoying the journey. Just give me a few dollars and a thrift store and I will keep exchanging clothes for the next size gladly.

Be blessed everyone and hopefully the storms will not do any more damage. I saw a picture on the television emoticon today about Nova Scotia and it looks like a bad one. ......we have beautiful breezes here in Southern Ontario.
