Well hello there Maria :) We have yet had fall like weather but I am hoping it will come soon..Great job on keeping the balance steady! have a wonderful evening!

liza36 on 10/04/2012:
Wow, nice read on the scale!

It doesn't really feel like fall yet. We've had lots of rain but still high temps in the 80's, so it feels like a humid summer day. I'm very ready for the colors to change and cooler temperatures.


thenewMLE on 10/04/2012:
Not quite feeling Fall yet, but the relief from the 90's and 100's is welcomed! congrats on hitting the 130's! Have a great day!

Below 140, well done, Maria!

RYC: thanks. My usual MWF workout.


TheMother on 10/04/2012:
You are doing fabulous Maria!!!! You must be feeling great!!!! Glad you're enjoying the warm weather. Here in central FL, we hit a high of 92 yesterday. Today was a little lower - upper 80s to 90 but the humidity was so high, I was drenched cutting the lawn and working outside even though it was only for two hours. We are now having a thunderstorm which hopefully will drop it somewhat. Have a nice day.


selina on 10/04/2012:
Congrats, Maria, for your being so focused! I love the fall weather, too!

We're getting a taste of Fall right now--it is soooo welcome!

RYC: Yes, this is completely free of animal-based food including milk, chicken, eggs, etc. Also great on doing some more walking--it's good for many things--I think all good:-)

TheMother on 09/18/2012:
Congrats on reaching your goal. You must be feeling quite proud. RYC: flea market. It was a huge place with a lot of vendors. Since this is located in central FL, it was quite hot inside and also quite crowded since we went on a Saturday. To help with the heat, they had large dusty and dirty fans blowing air mist out as you went down each aisle. My hair was frizzing like crazy from this yucky mist. We only stayed about an hour and left. I had gone to this flea market about a year ago and wanted to go again to see if anything had changed during that time. It hasn't so I think I'm going to cross this flea market off my list once and for all. Have a good day.

Hello, Friends.  I am at GOALWEIGHT today!

....................................

 

Scale weighed me at 140.0 this morning. nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567  I weighed 3 times and it was 140.0 EXACTLY each time!

 

...................................

'Don't Take Anything For Granted'

I have been at 140.0 goalweight at times before and let it slowly slip away.  I've been told by 2 doctors and a dietician that for my height, 5'8", 140.0 is the weight I need to stay at.  I was told this when I weighed 140.0 years ago.  But, what did I do?  I put higher priority on eating what I desired and how much I wanted of it instead of changing my way of eating and sticking with it.  It is SO EASY to put on weight and SO HARD to get it off.  Of course, I know you know this. 

Today's Weight (Goalweight):  140.0

Height:  5'8"

Current BMI:  21.3

Current Size:  8

Highest Weight:  205.0

Highest BMI:  31.2

Highest Size:  20 and 22

So...I plan to maintain now (with the good Lord's help) and having let it slip away more than one time before, I realize it is just as difficult to maintain goalweight (if not more so) than to get to it.

 

.......................................

 

Hope you are having a blessed day in the Lord.

That is amazing results!!


hollybelle on 09/13/2012:
Great news, Maria! It may be easier to stay at a certain weight than to lose down to it. But our weight will always fluxuate a little. I am comfortable at a higher weight than I used to be, but I don't want to go up at all. I wish I could stay at 150 but I have to take it slow because of my obsessive tendencies and how unhappy it makes me to focus so much on the scales. you do so well. Stay healthy my friend.


grannyannie on 09/13/2012:
Congrat, Maria!! Well done!

Hello and happy Sunday to you!

Beautiful fall-like day here, almost cool enough for a vest or jacket early this morning...I actually had goose bumps on my arms as Hubby and I sat out on the front porch early, high to be around 83 fahrenheit later today, according to the weather channel on tv and it says Monday nite we may be down to '59'...how about that???  But, of course, only the Lord knows for sure.

I believe fall is in the air!

Hope you are having a good day. Every day with the Lord IS a good day. Is He your Lord and Saviour? I hope so, cause He sure is mine! If He's not your Lord and Saviour, today is the day of salvation and there is NO TIME like today to get right with the Lord, Jesus Christ. Believe on Him, repent of your sins and ask His forgiveness. It is that simple. We are living in the last days and many will wish one day that they had chosen to live for Him while they were here on earth to do so!

Hello, Friends.  Hope you are having a nice morning.  I sat out on the front porch a little while this morning, listening to the birds singing.  We are having springtime flowers blooming all over again here, so beautiful.  Even, my fav, the orange daylilies (singles) are blooming again in the front now and were blooming again in the back just a few days or so ago.  The red geranium on the front porch is loaded with new blooms and the red rosebush near the front steps is as well.  What do they call it...an Indian summer?...  Anyway, it's been nice with the springtime flowers blooming again.
