Weight: 157.0

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Hello to you!!!

New Number!!! (Hehehehe....Big Smile!)

Today's Menu:

Barbequed chicken, 40, 1lite wheat bread, 40, 1 cup watermelon, 50, 4 small candies, 150, 1 very small peach, 20, 1 Wendy's Hamburger with lettuce and tomato, 300, 2 pecan spinners, 200...total so far at 4:43 pm....800 approx. (Written later...church supper: rice, 150, beef and gravy, 150, biscuit, 200, corn, 100, mac&cheese, 50, banana pudding, 250. (Numbers guessing.)

Today's Total: Guessing 1700 cals.

Exercise: Walked 2 & 1/3 miles and worked out at the gym with weights.

Calories deficit from gym walking, -170 cals.

Went to Mom's this morning around 11:30 am and then took her with me to the farmers' market today after I did a little cleaning at her apartment...on the way there, I stopped for gas and also got us some candies...she wasn't up to getting out anywhere...I bought her and me some more little peaches at the farmers' market...they are not regular size, so probably only 20 cals each instead of 35....I also got her some more boiled peanuts. Then we went to visit one of her high-school friends and she did get out there and we went inside, as I'd pulled up at the back door and ....after that, we went to Wendy's and I got us a hamburger there and she had tea and I had water and at her suggestion we sat in the parking lot, facing traffic on a highway in the pretty sunshine and warm weather and had our nice, late lunch together. Then we stopped by a store to get her some oatmeal she was out of and then I took her home after she said she didn't want to go to the gym with me when I'd offered for her to...so I went to the gym and had a good workout, walking over 30 minutes including inclines, and then working out with weights, too. So now I'm back home since around 4:30 pm and fixing to wash my hair and get ready for church tonite....wearing a pair of my size 12 levi non-stretch jeans....

Hope you have a good evening....

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hello to you!!! Hope you've had a wonderful day today!!!

The scale said I'm still at 158 this morning....yahoo!!! My favorite (at this size/weight) size 12 black levi jeans still fitting well and I wore them today.... So, even though I went over my usual 'allowed' cals yesterday by about 100 cals or so, I guess the walking yesterday helped!

Today's Menu:

Barbequed chicken, 2 lite wheat breads, 2 cups watermelon, 2 bananas, 1 apple, 7 small candies, 1 peanut bar, 1 ice cream s/w...about 1500 cals or so.

Exercise: Walked 1 mile and worked out at the gym with weights.

Hope you have a good nite....

gigi43 on 05/16/2006:
Good job on those jeans! And to answer your long-ago question, I am 5'2" so 147 is a bit heavy for me. But I am working on it! Hope you have another great day!


smiley2 on 05/17/2006:
Thanks for your comment, it really made me feel better. I know, we should just trust the Lord with all our questions, but sometimes its so difficult to have such strong faith, especially in this day and age when everything seems so screwed up here where i am lol :) Guess a person cannot really choose his or her own destiny, i think its all worked out from the beginning.

On a different front, im glad you didnt gain anything! I think you are managing the balance well when you do overindulge, so that is paying off. Have a wonderful day.

Good afternoon to you! Hope you're having a wonderful, blessed day in the Lord! It's been gorgeous here in South Carolina with sunshine and warm weather and birds singing in the trees. My Sister came and visited me about 3 hours today...that was real nice..We had a late mid-morning breakfast together..barbequed chicken sandwiches. Daughter came at lunch and I fixed her a grilled cheese sandwich (she wanted that instead of a chicken sandwich) and I still fixed her a barbequed chicken sandwich to take back to work with her for a mid-afternoon snack.

The scale said I'm still at 158 this morning....yahoo!!! I know I'm not at goal but I'm pleased I haven't gained with the iced-cinnamon/raisin bread binges last week! Measurements are the same, too! Yahoo!!!

Today's Menu:

Breakfast: Barbequed chicken sandwich with lite wheat bread, 400.

Lunch: 2 cups watermelon, 100, 1 banana, 105, 2 small chocolate cupcakes, 360 (better than the iced-cinnamon/raisin bread binge, anyway!).

Supper: Speghetti and meatballs, 540, very small peach, 20.

Snack: Barbequed chicken, 2 lite wheat bread, 4 little chocolate 'football' candy. Since this surprise snack has gone over calories allowed for the day, I won't do the calorie count on here for today. All I can say is Hubby LOVES to watch the food channel at night....and only that...errrrrrr!!! but it was me who gave in and ate more than I'd planned....so... hope scale is still friendly tomorrow morning as it was this morning...

Exercise: Walking at the farmers market again....bought Mama some boiled peanuts there...she loves them...and got 2 very small peaches...yum-yum!..one for her and one for me and I got Hubby a big navel orange. I got Daughter a small snack-size pecan pie but not at the farmers market. Mama was happy to get the boiled peanuts and peach I took her after I left the market and she gave me a small baked sweet potato (she offered me more as she'd baked quite a few but I only wanted a small one and I'll probably have it tomorrow, Lord willing) and a tomato for my Hubby, cause she said she knows he likes them.

I hope you have a good afternoon!

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Happy Mothers' Day to all you wonderful Mamas out there in internet land! Hope you're having a very blessed day today!

My day was EXTRA blessed when my only child, my Daughter, walked into our Sunday School Class this morning and stayed for preaching, too, and went and ate out with Hubby and me. Thank You, Jesus!

Breakfast: None.

Lunch: Golden Corral buffet...need I say more??? I had a little steak, a small corn on the cob, a baked sweet potato, a little piece of a piece of cheese pizza, about 1/2 cup orange sherbert and 1/2 cup vanilla soft serve ice cream, chocolate cake icing from a piec of chocolate cake, 2 or 3 yeast rolls and a container of honey butter, about 1 cup of watermelon...probably around 1400 cals or so, I'm guessing.

Supper: 1/2 barbequed skinless chicken breast and 1/2 snicker bar, 300?. I was planning to NOT eat supper, but a friend brought some barbequed chicken over left from their cookout today and I couldn't resist....then I 'had' to find a snicker bar in the refrigerator door that I bought a couple of weeks ago and had forgotten all about. It feels good to be wearing my size 12's again...I wore size 12 to church again this morning....I used to think size 12 was fat believe it or not...I know...'DUH!!!'...but I sure don't think that now. But I was a size 8 and 10 at that time that I thought that.

BTW, I changed my supper menu for yesterday (see yesterday's entry.)

Today's cals: Guessing 1700.

Hope you have a wonderful afternoon! Every day is a wonderful day with the Lord! Big Smile!

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

hey sweetie.. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.. I didn't know you had a daughter.. good to know :).and how wonderful for her to come to church and out to lunch.. :).. you asked is it still raining.. :( yes.. and chilly out.. in the 40's.. they said it';s going to get warmer.. but still rain for a few days.. they said maybe Wed. for no rain.. but that's it.. waaa..lol..

I wanted to tell you about the awesome dream I had the other night.. :)

OK in the dream I was at our church.. and we were in a room.. that we really don't have.. but while sitting in these chairs.. someone would open a door off to the left.. and you could see inside the church.. that was weird.. but anyway.. I remember a little later.. me and my friend Beth was standing off to the side.. and I was telling her how I was doing on my diet.. and then I would reach my hands up.. kinda like holding on to a bar , but there wasn't anything there.. but I was holding something while pulling my legs out in front of me.. and Beth's eyes just opened real wide.. and I told her.. " see Beth.. God is helping me do this.. he is holding my hands.. and I kept doing it.. and I could see myself.. just hanging in mid air while pulling my legs up.. well, The phone rang and it woke me up.. and boy.. my arms hurt me..lol..it was Beth on the phone too..lol.. and I truly believe it was God's way of letting me know.. yes.. he is helping me :)..I already knew that of course.. but it was kinda a validation :).. he is AWESOEM ISNT HE.. :)..

ok its late and I need to get to bed.. hugs girly..

Breakfast: None.

Lunch: Another sugar binge of iced cinnamon/raisin bread. Maybe soon I won't want anymore of that.

Hope you have a wonderful afternoon!

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!

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...

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!

Have great day, hope you are doing better.
