Hello to you! Hope you've had a very blessed day today!

Do you ever say something and really, really wish you hadn't????? I made this mistake today. Why didn't I think twice before opening my yapper? It's easy to say things, but then they can't be taken back. The person I said it to said I didn't hurt their feelings when I said I was sorry I'd said it after I said it and I really hope it didn't and now I've asked them and the Lord to forgive me and I hope all is well. That will teach me to think twice before I say something again, I hope.

Breakfast: None.

Lunch: (Another Sugar-Binge) Iced Cinnamon/Raisin Bread, not a little, and 1 Banana. I'd disposed of the remainder of yesterday's binge, thinking that would stop a repeat, but I went right back to the grocery store again today and did a repeat anyway.

Supper: 1 cup baked okra and 1 extra small piece of grilled-out steak. (I'm sitting on the back deck keying this and having a grilled-steak cook-out at the same time.)

Total: 1500?...not sure...maybe more, with the iced cinnamon-raisin bread again.

Exercise was walking in grocery stores 2 or 3 times.

Hope you have a wonderful afternoon!

Remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Hi there,

Yea i have said some things i have regretted, but funny enough its usally to close family members or friends, so its easier to get off the hook with them. Sometimes out of nervouness (im a very anxious person), i say the wrong or stupid things to strangers and even if i do say im sorry i feel so awkward that im not sure they accept my apology.

I guess the way to go is this: You know you are a good, caring, wonderful person, and if sometimes you make a mistake by saying something you dont mean, and you say sorry, and people dont accept it....well then its their problem hehe.

Oh and by the way, by skipping breakfast, maybe your mini binge didnt do so much damage...

Good job on bringing your weight back down so quickly! Your foods were great yesterday except for that bread, although that sounds so good. And you got exercise in so I'm sure you didn't do too much damage. I hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for telling me about the greenbeans and potatoes, im going to try it for sure! I also have a lot of fond memories of my grandmother's food, but i try not to think about it, since most of my memories are painful. Not that they are bad in any way, its just because they are memories and miss them, wish i can get back there for just 5 min. Sometimes when i close my eyes i do, but then i always get tears hehehehe.

How old is your daughter, does she live nearby you?

Have a great day.

Welna

PS You should post a pic too, more and more of the gals on here are starting to do it...:)

Hello to you! I thank each and every one of you who responded with comforting condolences regarding my Uncle. It really means a lot to know someone cares.

I hope each of you are having a very wonderful, happy, blessed day today!

It is a cloudy day here in S.C. It was a rainy day yesterday. Thank the Lord for the rain...we really needed it...I've been watering our flowers with the water hose off and on and so now that is not needed. We have 2 rosebushes in the back yard in bloom....orange roses...one has about 12 roses on it and the other has a good many, though not that many. I think the orange daylilies in the front yard are getting ready to bloom. The azaleas were in bloom last month...mostly red, pink, and peach colored ones are the varieties we have..but there are almost all finished blooming now and now other flowers are blooming. Isn't it amazing how the Lord created it to where all the flowers don't bloom all at the same time and thus we get to enjoy them a lot longer?

Today's Menu: (Numbers are estimates.)

Breakfast: banana and lite pimento cheese sandwich on lite wheat bread, 250.

Lunch: Barbequed chicken breast and small salad of cucumber, lettuce, green bell pepper, and celery, and desert of chocolate candy (gotta get some more apples), 600.

Supper: Green beans and potatoes and a piece of homemade cornbread with a little margerine, 350.

Nitesnack: Green beans and potatoes and 2 small chocolate candies, 150.

Today's Total: Guessing 1350 calories.

Hubby and I did eat out buffet yesterday and I was good with that (only had 1/2 yeast roll and a 'touch' of honey butter, small corn on the cob, baked sweet potato, about a cup of watermelon, a teaspoon or so of sunflower seeds, a small salad of lettuce and carrots, a little amount of fried chicken, 1/2 small piece of cheese pizza, 1/2 cup orange sherbert ice cream, and the chocolate icing off of a piece of chocolate cake (hehe!)) That was about 850 cals or so and I'd only had a banana for breakfast, then yesterday afternoon, we had a meeting at church and although I'd 'budgeted' for 300 cals, it was more like 500 cals with the small chocolate donuts and nuts. Last nite was a few more little pieces of chocolate candy...so total for yesterday was around 1700, I think, and I always try to do 'maintain cals' (around 1700) on Sundays, since we usually eat out buffet.

Hope you all have a good afternoon...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Thanks for the comment! I think you should be thrilled to be in a size 12 because whenever you go down a size, it's definitely cause for celebration.

Sorry to hear about your uncle, though. A death in the family is always rough and I wish you and your family the best during this difficult time.


bunny_girl on 05/05/2006:
Maria, I'm so sorry about your Uncle. It's tough because even though you know he's up with God it's still hard not to seem him around down here anymore. You seem like a person of powerful faith though and I know that God is looking after the both of you. Keep your smile on girl!

Hello to you! Hope you're having a happy, blessed day! I'm out here sitting on the lounge chair on the back deck in the warm sunshine...been grilling out barbequed chicken on the grill...and keying to you! I dropped some popcorn on the deck and a cute squirrel has come up here and is eating it...he/she gets a piece of popcorn and climbs up on the bannister beside me and sits there on his/her hind legs, holding it with front paws, staring at me while eating the popcorn...I talk to him/her and he/she seems almost tame...we have lots of squirrels that are like this...they also LOVE tomatoes...I quit having tomato gardens around the back deck because of the cute little critters' love for them. Any ideas on how I could have tomatoes planted and the little critters not want to eat the tomatoes????

Today's menu:

Breakfast: 1 stalk celery, tsp lite pimento cheese, 50.

Lunch: Grilled cheese s/w with 2 lite wheat bread, 80, fatfree cheese, 30, tsp. low cal margerine, 20, 1 apple, 80.

Hi Maria!

First of all welcome back from your beach long weekend! I only got around to catch up all your entries since then and it sounded absolutely fabulous and so romantic! Im so glad you and your husband enjoyed yourselves! And dont feel guilty about the eating, i believe vacations are the times that we can let ourselves go a bit, who wants to miss out on all the nice treats for the rest of your life anyway, you only got one life.

Good food choices for today, it is tough to get back on track though after a long weekend of heavy eating...ask me....


bunny_girl on 05/01/2006:
Ohhh!! Sounds so nice! I love squirrels! Growing up we lived in a heavily wooded area and the little guys were everywhere!!! One got into the house one time and went crazy! I'm not sure what to do about the tomatoes, we used a squirrel feeder and didn't have many problems with our vegetables. I'm not sure if we grew tomatoes or not though. Anyway sounds like you're doing great! keep it up!!

Me again...

You asked what winegums were, well they are the most amazing little sweets. Chewy in texture and very flavourful. Its got nothing to do with wine, like the names says lol, the only thing it has to do with it is its got the names of certain wines printed on the eg burgandy, port etc, very cute. My favourite is the black and red ones, but you get yellow, green and orange in the packet all mixed together. A small packet of mini winegums doesnt have many calories, about 250 and it satisfies my sweet tooth! Here is a website if you want to have a look at the package. Scroll down, you will find 3 versions, but my fav is the first one. Maynards Original Mini Wine gums. Maybe you can order some for yourself hehehe! http://www.satooz.com/category11_1.htm

That is exactly what I did....and I could write down all I ate and when I ate it and how many calories each thing was app, but why do all that....????...I'll just say I've had cheese, bread, chicken, popcorn, candy, potato chips, corn on the cob, raisin cake, ice cream, cherries, watermelon, bananas, an apple, a stalk of celery, 1 tbs. of lite pimento cheese, sardines, and it was ALLLLLLLL GOOD!!!!
