(Off the Wagon again...)
Weight: 161.0

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! Hope you've had a gorgeous day today!

It was sunny and warm here in S.C., USA! Hubby got off earlier than usual this afternoon and we had a grill-out on the back deck....we grilled out barbequed chicken...yummy!

After we ate supper together, I went to a meeting and came home and had about 5 or 6 hundred calories (snack!)....I don't know why....I was planning on only a 100 cal bag of popcorn...but I was HUNGRY!!!!

Today's menu:

Breakfast: Scrambled egg, no oil, 80, 1 plain lite wheat toast,40, 1 apple, 80, 2 small caramels, 80, 2 bubblegums, 30.

Lunch: 2 cinnamon buns, 440. (Note: I want to start disciplining myself about this...I eat a lot of sweets and I want to start eating more fruits and veggies. I could have had a nice veggie/fruit salad for less than the amount in these 2 cinnamon buns.)

Supper: Grilled barbequed chicken, 190, fried potatoes, 200, 2 white breads,140, cheese,200.

Snack: Chocolate candy, 200, 1 white bread, 70, cheese, 100, chicken, 200.

Today's total: About 2050 calories or so.

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Progress as of today: 8.5 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

I hear you with the sweets and candy in-take, but you're right in that having a meal with lots of vegetables, and some protein, and some carbohydrates instead of some (just some!) of the sweets would help you lose weight. I try to have my cake and eat it too!


monet0239 on 04/29/2006:

Dear Maria I'm in Leicestershire in England which is kind of in the middle of the UK. A satsuma is a small orange and is a bit like a clementine - I don't know if you get those in the USA. I'm going on holiday next Wednesday for 2 weeks to one of the Canary Islands and hopefully it's going to be warm and sunny - the weather here isn't that good and Bank Holiday Monday it's forecast to rain. Hope that answers your questions! A good days dieting awaits! Lil

(See-Food)
Weight: 163.0

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! Thought I would go ahead and get on here...hope you've been doing wonderful! I've thought about y'all and missed y'all!

As for me, we had one of the best weekend beach vacations we've ever had! I'm sure you can tell it by the new number above! Yes, we did eat, eat, eat! We ate out buffet, we also got a pizza and took it to our apartment, and we had ice creams, (mine was chocolate nut sudae with extra cherries)....not to mention room food...candy, donuts, etc! I was on a see-food diet there, hehehe! Btw, the 'seafood' was good, too! Hubby got raw and fried osters, shrimp, etc. and I got flounder...fried, of course! We walked for miles and miles and miles and I tried to console myself that my weight wouldn't be up too much because of all those miles of walking, but when I came home, the next morning the scale showed number 163 and the next (yesterday) and today, too!

We stayed at an ocean-view on-the-beach efficiency apartment with stove and refrigerator (which we stocked with lots of goodies that we had stopped on the way to the beach and bought for 'room food'!) and microwave and also with a balcony...we had stayed at it before...we opened the sliding-glass doors and let the sea-breeze blow in as we listened to the sweet sound of the song of the ocean-waves surf! It was so relaxing and romantic!

Hubby and I took lots of walks hand-in-hand along the beach and through the pavilion and along the streets, too! Most of the weather was sunny and warm (highs in the 80's fahrenheit). The ocean was a gorgeous brilliant blue and I fed the seagulls from the balcony (bread). They flew so close by, I could almost touch them. I would toss a piece of bread to one and watch while he/she would catch it in mid-air! They squawked to each other gleefully at the surprise feast while they delighted in flying by to catch their snacks! (Hehehe!)

Hubby and I also went to a popular huge garden park and walked hand-in-hand through some of the most beautiful brightly-colored flower gardens I've even seen! Red Amarylis, pink Azaleas, red camileas, orange and yellow flowers...so many varieties!

We also walked on fishing piers and watched different people catching fish...I stood at the end of one of the long piers and looked at the horizon and how the ocean curved at the horizon....something I've never really noticed before....how the 'end' of the ocean and the 'beginning' of the skyline curved around, almost like a half-moon shape...and I thought...how could anyone ever have thought that the earth was square (long, long ago) and not round?????? When that 'line' of the horizon clearly shows that the earth IS round.

We went to flea markets and a huge mall. Lots of walking...hand-in-hand.

Today's menu:

Breakfast: McD's hamburger, 260, and 1/2 small french fries with ketchup,145.

Lunch: 2 cold bananas,(I've found that bananas taste so much better COLD)210, 1 Oscar-Myer weiner, 40, 1 piece of lite wheat bread, 40.

Snack: 3 Lance snack chocolate cookies, 110, 1 Lance snack pb/sweet cookie, 40.

Snack: Frozen turkey dinner with corn, mashed potatoes, turkey and dressing, 185.

Supper: 1 Oscar-Myer weiner, 40, 1 piece lite wheat bread, 40, 2 nutty-buddy ice creams, 440.

Today's total: 1550 calories.

Exercise: Walked about 1/2 mile at the Farmer's Market.

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Progress as of today: 6.5 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 04/27/2006:
Welcome back Maria! Your vacation sounds just wonderful, thanks for the great descriptions of everything. The food sounds really good too, sometimes it's just worth it to indulge. I'm sure your weight will be back down after a few days of regular eating so no worries.

yehudith on 04/19/2006:
Maria, I hope you'll be 155 by tomorrow morning, because you wish to meet you goal weight by then, but I think that, notwithstanding the scale digits tomorrow, based on how you've been doing thus far, you'll probably get there soon enough.

Hello to you! Hope you've had a wonderful day thus far!

Today's Menu:

Breakfast: None, still full from yesterday's goodies.

Lunch: McD's quarter-pounder minus the cheese, 440 (if I'd only KNOWN the bun was 180 by itself!) Oh, well.

Later snack: 3 Musketeer candy bar, 260.

Supper: None.

Today's Cals: 850 Calories. (I know, I know, a little low, but I think the birthday cake I had yesterday had hydrogenated oil for most of the icing and may have been 100 cals/tbsp...and if so, that means my total cals for yesterday were a lot more than I thought they were. I haven't found the calories for Bilo birthday cake though I have looked online. Besides, goal day is April 19th, only 2 more days! Do y'all think I can do it?)

John 3:16 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.

Hello to you! Hope you're having a nice day!

Did some more shopping today for Mom's birthday and birthday party...we'll be having cake, ice cream, chips, cheetos, orange candy (her favorite), chocolate-covered peanuts, and a variety of soft drinks. (But I'll be drinking water as I don't drink soft drinks.) Also I found her some gorgeous bedroom slippers today to go with her red housecoat that I hope will fit her. They are black with red trim. After this, I went to a Good Friday service at a church in town where we all sang songs about Jesus and heard the Word of God preached. It was WONDERFUL!!! I sang to Jesus and raised my hand toward the ceiling, too. I think it is a good thing to praise the Lord and while you may not raise your hand to Him publicly, you may praise Him another way and that is good! Everyone is different! That's the way He created us! Then I went and visited my Mom, who had cooked some boiled eggs and baked some sweet potatoes in her oven and had lunch with her. She also had some peas and pork cooking in her crockpot but I didn't have any of that. She is SO excited about her party...it's the first time she's had a party given to her. I told her about the cake and the colors of it and you should have seen the happiness in her face!

Today's Menu:

Breakfast: 1 scrambled egg, no oil, 80, 1 multi-grain bread, 70.

Snack: 1 raisin cake, 300?, 1 peppermint candy, 20.

Lunch: 1 small baked sweet potato, plain, 140, and 1 boiled egg, 80.

Snack: 1 cup microwaved plain okra, 50.

Supper: Part of a small pizza, 350, 1 apple, 80, 3/4 cup rice with a little beef stew, 180.

Today's Total: 1350 calories (or close to it).

Exercise: Vacumned 5 rooms, wash clothes, raked in the yard, swept back deck and front porch, watered flowers, did a lot of extra cleaning of the house.

Today is Good Friday. It is the day we observe of the day our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ gave His Life to save you and me. Because of Him, we who believe in Him have the gift of eternal life in Him...we have a home waiting for us when we leave this world where we will never suffer again...a home of pure love, peace, joy, and beauty. There is NOTHING in this world that can compare with this. We, who belong to Him (Jesus) have that gift of eternal life NOW...we don't have to wait til we leave this world to have this precious gift, we have it now. We can know peace, joy, love now because we belong to Him. One day, Jesus is going to come back...He is going to return to earth...if you are not ready and waiting and watching for His return, guess what? You will have missed out on the most important thing life has to offer! So, if you are not saved, now is the time to repent of your sins, ask His forgiveness, and believe on Him...Jesus shed His blood and gave His life for your forgiveness....He took YOUR place on the cross because He LOVES YOU! Won't you ask Him to be your Lord and Saviour today?

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hi Maria!

So you had that pizza after all heheheh. What were your toppings? Just so long as you enjoyed it! I believe we are able to eat our favourite foods and not feel guilty, moderation is the key of course.

All the goodies you brought for you mom's Birthday sounds really nice, you guys must have a great time, njoy every minute!


Umpqua on 04/15/2006:
That birthday party sounds great, and you did well with the food considering all the temptations. It sounds like you had an amazing Good Friday! Good for you for not drinking soft drinks too. I've never been big on them, but since finding out my *news* I've been avoiding them entirely except for a little ginger ale when absolutely necessary for nausea. The sugary ones will rot your teeth, and the diet ones have their own set of complications - better to avoid them entirely!
