Hello, Everyone.  

We had a nice church service this morning and our Pastor (the one who is soon leaving preached a wonderful message on salvation and our looking for the return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ...which could be at ANY time!  Our Pastor told us to STAY READY! as we look for His return... and that if anyone is not saved or needs to repent of their sins, NOW is the time to do it and not put it off.

   ........................

The scale was favorable this morning, with weight at 149.0.  I've been on track pretty well for the past week or two. 

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

Hubby and I visited Mama at the nursing home this afternoon.  I took her a small container of some baked apple pieces with cinnamon and a light sprinkling of sugar on them that I made for her this morning before we left for church.

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

It has been cool here the past couple of days...NICE.   Lows in the upper 50's, highs in the 70's...sweater-weather, we call it here.

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

Hope you are having a nice afternoon.

Love, Maria

Hi, Maria. This is great apple weather. I'll bet those apples you took your Mom were tasty! Have a good week.


grannyannie on 09/18/2011:
You're doing great. Have a lovely day!


greengirl on 09/18/2011:
Thanks for the birthday wishes Maria. I hope you have had a great weekend too :-)

What a delicious treat to take your mom :). I agree fall is beautiful! Glad you are having a nice weekend!


moogy on 09/18/2011:
I am glad the weather is cooling down for you Maria. Autumn really is my favourite time of the year. I am ready for Him, I wish He would come soon:)


V on 09/18/2011:
I am sure you had a lovely visit with your Mom :) Have a wonderful evening!!


Umpqua on 09/18/2011:
It sounds like all is well and what a nice treat to bring to your Mom!


liza36 on 09/19/2011:
Your Pastor's message is so true! We must be ready and not procrastinate.

I love this time of year with the cooler weather. I can't wait to wear all my sweaters too. Have a wonderful day.


~WI~ on 09/20/2011:
I agree with the message! So happy to read your mom is doing well and that you are still able to visit with her!

Hello, Everyone.  

Boring below:

I have a headache and I am writing this late at nite.  I have been staying on track.  Scale is barely cooperating to show progress.  I am refraining from nite-time snacking, along with counting calories diligently and getting in a lot of walking.  I am still stressed out regarding people and their choices, but what else is new?  Their choices are exactly that...'THEIRS'...  I think I need to memorize that.

So...I've been reading entries here tonite.  Overall, it looks like you are all staying on track pretty well.   Very good.

   ........................

Hope you are having a nice evening.

Love, Maria

moogy on 09/12/2011:
Would it help to focus on forgiveness at this time when people's choices are really getting to you? I always try and find an excuse for the behaviour that upsets me. I ask "Why would I do that, what would cause me to choose that", sometimes it really helps me not to judge their choices, even when they are very upsetting. And even when the people should know better!! Well done on resisting the night time snacking Maria, particularly to be commended at this difficult time:)


mcwoo40 on 09/13/2011:
Have a good day :-)


thinkpositive on 09/13/2011:
Hey boring is fine! You are right about their choices- they belong to them , they own them. But it can be hard to watch other people make poor choices.


grannyannie on 09/13/2011:
Wise advise. You are responsible only for your own choices, not others. I deal with this as well with grown children, but can't do anything. Hope your day today is a good one.


V on 09/13/2011:
Hey Maria :) Sending lots of love your way to you!! I hope your Mom is doing well...Have a wonderful day!!


Umpqua on 09/13/2011:
I know it's tough Maria, I deal with this all the time with my parents. But people make their own choices, for whatever reason, and we are just left to accept the consequences, however unpleasant. Now it looks like you are making great choices with food and no night time snacking, yay!


Umpqua on 09/13/2011:
P.S. I'm going to paint the deck a sand color, it's a light brown sort of beachy color :) It was previously dark brown, just like our entire house. We're slowly working to brighten and lighten all the colors!


liza36 on 09/13/2011:
Good advice to let people's decisions and choices be theres. We can't change anyone else, but ourselves. I liked Moogy's comment - wise advice.

Good job on the nite time eating. That can be tough, but sounds like you've got a handle on it. The scale will follow suit!


biscottibody59 on 09/13/2011:
Thanks for your sentiments!

Keep going on your path and the walking too:-)


moogy on 09/13/2011:
You still have the hair to be a hippy Maria, it would be an easy transistion to make you over:)


hollybelle on 09/14/2011:
Philippians 4:6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (NLT)

I know you know this verse, Maria. Just a good reminder for us. I love the part about "then you will experience God's peace....." Hope your mind becomes more peaceful very soon.

Hi Maria. Hope things are going well. Happy Sunday!

Hello, Everyone.  Thanks for the comments to my previous entry.

I'm being a good girl with the eating right now.  A MAD good girl, but a good girl nontheless.  Scale is S-L-O-W-L-Y going in the right direction again.  After all, how does one VERY EFFECTIVELY eat less when eating buffet-style, anyway?  Okay...we all know the answer to that one...eat less (MUCH LESS!) during the day before going to eat buffet-style, that's how!  And!  No cheating when come back home...no snacking at nite!  So...that's how I've been being a good girl.  As for a 'MAD' good girl...yep...that's how it is these days...Why mad?  One word....  'people'...Just that simple.  Yep.  Just that simple...'people'...Why do I let them upset me? 

   ........................

Hope you are doing well.

Yes, life would be much easier if it were not for the people we have to deal with!! So proud of you not eating at night, it would seem that just dropping out that little weakness and being sensible the rest of the time is working for you. Excellent.! Yes, I am very blessed, my daughter has two boys and two girls and my son has two boys. Now!!! What would you like for Christmas little girl!! LOL


Umpqua on 09/09/2011:
Great job taking charge of your eating! I knew you were going to turn things around :) I hope you have an excellent weekend!

I understand! People can be so irritating! But having said that, you are doing well, however slowly it may be going.


biscottibody59 on 09/09/2011:
I'm pretty sure I know where you're coming from and even if I don't know exactly, seems like the outcome is stress. Then stress eating/overeating or in my case feeling like I deserve to eat however I want 'cause I have to deal with this or that. I guess that's only human.

Hang in there and keep on track as well as you can--you're worth every effort!


hollybelle on 09/09/2011:
Mad....ha-ha. I like that country song that says "I just want to be mad for awhile". Sometimes we just need time to get over it. Hope it passes soon. Candied apples with nuts - YES. I love them. I like the caramel kind with peanut, though not the red kind so much - but I wouldn't pass them up and the apples have to be real fresh and crisp! Ohhhh, yummy!

greengirl on 09/12/2011:
hi Maria, I am glad to see that you are getting back on the straight and narrow. Sorry you are having problems with 'people' but that's the way life is sometimes. If it was easy all the time we probably wouldn't appreciate the good times ;-) Thanks for asking about my daughter at Uni. She is going into her third and final undergraduate year and her subject is history. The university where she is has a lot of ancient and medieval sites locally so she picked a good place to study, plus it is on the coast and in an area of mountains so she gets to enjoy the great outdoors :-)


selina on 09/12/2011:
Good job on keeping the buffet foods under control! I hope those people don't put too much stress on you :(..... stay well!


biscottibody59 on 09/12/2011:
You're welcome!

Thank you for your generous and kind comment. I had to consciously let go--what I was doing certainly (and painfully) wasn't working. I made myself sick--no one did that to me but me. I'm recovering, I'm getting there. The people are still there, but I don't respond the way I once did and often made a bad habit of.

One of the biggest things I've learned is that "keeping the peace" practically means keeping MY peace. You DO have control over your peace. Other people's--not so much:-)

Have a good week!

Hello, Everyone.

I am currently pretty discouraged...(look out...pity party about to begin below)...

I am dealing with some different things going on...all very depressing things...I won't begin to mention them but I'm trying my very best...

In the meantime I am eating late at nite, even though I DO NOT BE HUNGRY...how crazy is that???  Naturally my weight has not been going down but up...I think I got used to an old habit of comforting my anxieties with food and now even though I do NOT be hungry, I'm still doing it...

Anyway...I don't know why I am choosing to sabatoge all the hard work I've done...

It is going to make it that much more difficult to get back on track and stay on track...

Yes, I've regained weight this year and although I'm still wearing size 8's, it won't be long I'll be out of them at this rate...

I just seem to not feel able to STOP what I am doing with mindless eating...

HELP!

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

Hope you are doing well.

Love, Maria

hollybelle on 09/02/2011:
Sorry you are going through a hard time, Maria! Now you know what you are doing - would it help if, when you feel the anxiety eating coming on to pray or meditate - I find I give in to anxiety eating when there is no answer to the situation I am anxious about - sometimes that is just a fact - there is no answer/solution - all we can do is pray and trust God. Hoping you feel better and get a handle on the emotional eating very soon! You have worked so hard and deserve your healthy body!


selina on 09/03/2011:
Aww, Maria, I'm sorry you are going through a rough time. I do, however, have great faith in you and I know that you'll overcome this hurdle. Stay well!


thinkpositive on 09/03/2011:
Remember how hard you worked to lose the weight & do all you can to get back on track. What else helps besides eating? Just get rid of the foods that you are eating mindlessly & replacee with your most favorite healthy foods. - Just an idea.


Em17 on 09/03/2011:
Have a great weekend =)!


greengirl on 09/03/2011:
I'm sorry that you are going through an anxious time. Sometimes it is hard not to eat when you need comfort. Stay strong Maria.


missdetermined on 09/04/2011:
Anxiety really stinks :( I think what you need are some relaxing, soothing options that won't add to your waistline. Take a long hot bath, go for a walk or a drive, treat yourself to a new book or exercise item, write, talk to someone (like me!) about it, take some deep breaths, or find a way to keep your mind busy (I like to make jewelry, crochet, or watch a happy movie when I'm sad or anxious). Feel better!


biscottibody59 on 09/04/2011:
Hang in there! The excess food always seems to win!


Umpqua on 09/05/2011:
I'm sorry you're going through a rough time Maria. You've identified the problem - comfort eating, and you know what is making you so anxious that you're turning back to food to console yourself. And I think you know what you need to do - confront the problem head on and work through it. I know that's not easy but I also know you are strong and determined and you will find a way to get through this. Whatever is bothering you, it's not worth sabotaging all the hard work you've put into your health. I've had to tell myself this time and time again!

Hello, Friends!

I thank the Lord for sparing us from Hurricane Irene, here in SC.  One of my friends and I did get caught up in a fierce windstorm yesterday, though, however.  We were over in another town and suddenly the skies got dark, and up ahead of us (I was driving) we saw what appeared to be a spireling, swirling duststorm (we didn't see a funnel) that we quickly were caught up in the  midst of.  Very heavy rain was blowing sideways in sheets and I struggled to keep us in our lane on the highway while contemplating pulling off the road and wondering if we were going to witness a tree or an electric pole falling at any second.  We finally made it to a store about a mile or two away and by then most of the scenario had lessened somewhat and we hurried inside a store to take refuge (Cracker Barrel, no less!).  We were soaked from the rain we encountered as we left our parked vehicle and made our way as safely and quickly as we could to inside the store, while at the same time, relieved we were safe!  Later, after we left the store, on our way back home, we stopped and treated ourselves to donuts!

 I bought a pretty 2-piece lined skirt and matching top suit at a thrift store yesterday (we'd gone thrift-store shopping) that I plan to wear to church tomorrow morning.  It is gold-colored and has fringe on the bottom of the skirt and on the bottoms of the short sleeves...looks very Native-American-style.   Today, we were shopping again and I found some nice knee-high moccassin-boots with lots of fringe on them, a good match to my fringe jacket and in almost the same identical shade of bright-brown.  I don't always dress the Native-American 'look', though (but still get asked if I'm Native American regardless).  Sometimes I like to dress with my size 8 Levis jeans on and matching top and with boots worn with jean-legs over them.  I love fur and have a fur (fake-fur) jacket I wear in the fall/winter with matching hat, pocketbook, gloves, and earmuffs.  I also like leather (only the real leather, not fake) and wear a leather jacket, gloves, etc. in the fall/winter sometimes.   I guess we each have our own 'styles' of dress we prefer.  I am not one to wear shorts in the spring/summer but I do wear below the knee capris with sandels (as you've probably noticed in my photo earlier this year).

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

Hope you're having a good day.

Love, Maria

Down a little more today.

 

Visited my Aunt (Mom's Sister) again today, after visiting Mom at the nursing home.

Hello, Friends!

It has been a pretty, sunny, warm day here in S.C.

 

I've been spending some time with my Aunt (Mom's Sister) for a couple of days, helping her some.

It is a lovely, warm, breezy morning here in SC.  The birds are singing in the trees and squirrels are scampering across the lawn.  I'm sitting out on the front porch, drinking coffee, and keying to you.

My weight has gone up.

Gotta quit giving in to nite-time snacking.

Nice to see you post! I agree with Umpqua, and I hear from my gals at Weight Watchers who have met their goal that maintenance is sometimes harder than weight loss. I know you can do it - you've done it before!


hollybelle on 08/11/2011:
Good to hear from you! Stop that night-time snacking right now! Seriously - I have tried to eat earlier and no eating after 7:00, but I don't eat dinner until 8:00 or 8:30 sometime, so how can I? I just try to keep it healthy. You can knock those pounds out soon. You know what to do. Keep it positive and let us hear from ya! Have you had any scuppernong grapes this year?

hey Maria, nice to see you have posted. I hope you are well and your mother is doing well?? Take care of yourself :-)

hollybelle on 08/13/2011:
I have only had one batch of scuppernongs. I am like you - I don't like the ones at the grocery store. I like the amber colored soft ones and pick them one by one from the road side produce stand. But I went again today and they didn't have any - no muscadines, either. I was sad. Maybe they will get some more in next week. There is only the one stand that sells them here.

It always was the night time snacking that undid your hard work during the day wasn't it Maria? Same with me I am afraid. You sound happy and I am glad for that. Thank you for stopping by and saying hello:)


moogy on 08/16/2011:
Thank you for the advice Maria. My flowers are all in pinks, purples, whites and a lemon and white. I love them. Makes me smile just to go out there for a little trimming of dead heads, watering etc. I am even looking forward to the heat hitting the pot I have the tomato seeds in so I will have fresh tomatoes to pick for salads during the summer. Look after yourself:)

Hello, Friends!

Today is my birthday.  I thank the Lord for it.  God is good.  I visited Mom at the nursing home for hours today, who was in bed (she's been sick) and cleaned out her closet (an HOURS job).  The CNA's there at the nursing home tend to grab whatever is in front in her closet to put on her each day and Mom said she's been wearing the same sets of clothing over and over as the front of her closet is the only part that has been getting rotated.  When I took out clothes from the middle and back of her closet and showed them to her, she exclaimed gleefully that she felt like she was shopping today as she had forgotten she had a lot of those clothes that have not been being put on her.  So, I rotated her clothing to put what she's been wearing a lot in the middle of her closet (clothing for cooler weather in the back) and beautiful clothes, including Cracker Barrel shirts matched up with pants to make sets of them in the front.  She was so happy! 

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

 

I came home and cooked supper for Hubby and me.  He washed the dishes after we ate.  He already took me out to eat for my birthday present before today, my choice.  

...........................  

Our Daughter came by for a few minutes, so we got to see her.

A very happy birthday!

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

Hope you're having a good evening!

Love, Maria

You are a wonderful blessing to your mother. So lovely to be able to return the love and care she gave you as a child. When I had a big vegie garden I had about ten different types of vegies and used the companion planting method and rarely lost any due to insects, except for the cauliflowers the white moths loved those. I hate to use pesticides. Have a lovely day Maria:)

Hello, Friends!

I hope you are doing well.   I'm doing pretty good, still visiting Mom at the nursing home most days, sitting with her and making sure all is well with her and she has whatever she needs.

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

 

Hubby is doing okay, too.  (We're going on 22 years anniversary in October.) 

...........................  

It is reported that it got up to 100 degrees fahrenheit today here...yes, a little warm but this is typical for this time of year...very warm and humid... 

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

Hope you're having a good evening!

Love, Maria
