Good morning to you! It's another lovely, sunny, warm day here in South Carolina...looks like we may be in for some more tropical rain this afternoon...There are a few 'rainy-looking' clouds approaching from the direction of the ocean...I like rain as well as sunshine...rain cleans the air and waters everything...and usually after a good rain, the next morning, the skies are so beautiful!

Today's weight: 148

______________________________________________________________________

I've gone down another size...I'm wearing size 8 levi jeans now, as well as size 8 in other jeans, too. (Was wearing size 20 and 22 in jeans at highest weight.) Height is 5'8".

I'm still loosely counting calories (try not go over 1700 cals per day) and Hubby and I are still walking in the evenings.

One of my favorite snacks is a whole bag of popcorn, 94% fatfree Healthypop, buttered flavor, less than 250 cals per bag and the bag is big! I still eat sweets just about every day, too. I also eat lots of fruits and veggies and lean meat...and diet wheat bread for sandwiches...I like 20 calorie fatfree Oscar Myer bologna. You CAN eat and be full and not be overweight...just make the right choices and discipline yourself. I try not to eat late at night. Yes, that means going to bed feeling hungry a lot of nights, but you tell yourself you can have whatever it is (within reason) that you're craving in the morning and that usually suffices. Also, drinking a large glass of water when you are having cravings helps delay that feeling...or brushing your teeth when you feel like overindulging.

Well, I hope you have a wonderful afternoon...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria(SMILE!!!!)

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die... John 11:25, 26

Good afternoon to you! It's been beautiful, mostly sunny with gorgeous brilliant blue skies and white cottony-looking puffs of clouds today, warm but not too warm.

Today, my Mother and I went to Cracker Barrel and had lunch together. We each ordered grilled sirloin steak, and Mama ordered mashed potatoes, green beans, and macaroni and cheese with hers...I ordered baby carrots, tossed salad, and hashbrowns with mine (I ate less than half the hashbrowns)..and she ordered sweet tea and I ordered diet coke and we each ordered apple pie (I ate about half of mine...all the apples and half the crust),with a little vanilla ice cream for desert...YUM!!! It was GOOD! That was my first time eating at the Cracker Barrel...pretty good food.

Then after that, we went shopping...at the thrift store! All of the ladie's blouses were on sale for only $1.00 each! We each chose 3 and Mama found a nice pocketbook, like new, for $1.00 also. So, I brought the clothes home and am washing and drying them before we wear them and also am spraying the inside and outside of her pocketbook with lysol spray.

So, hope you have a nice afternoon.

Remember...if you haven't already, Jesus tells us in Mark 1:15, "...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."

Love, Maria

Good morning to you! Hope you're having a lovely day in the Lord!

We South Carolinians have been having some tropical rain! We got around 4 inches of rain yesterday, according to the weather channel on tv in the area where we live. Water in the roads, ditches overflowing onto the roads, electricity went off, we had candlelight singing (which was nice) at church last night for those who came.

Well...going to read some entries...looks like we're in for more rain today...SMILE! (We needed rain and thanks to the Lord for sending it!)

Remember...if you haven't already, Jesus tells us in Mark 1:15, "...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."

Hi Thank you for your wonderful posting today. John 3:16 is my favorite.

My mother-in-law just moved to Murrells Inlet S.C. she loves it there. I am hopefull that I will be able to go visit at Christmas time, it will give me a strong reason to work hard at walking again!

Have a wonderful and blessed Friday!

Good morning to you!

Today is a beautiful day in the Lord, sunny and warm, here in South Carolina. Today is also my birthday. I thank the Lord for another year and for all His many blessings he has blessed me with, the biggest blessing of all being the gift of eternal life through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It's an honor and a privilege to be a Christian and I am happy to say that I am a Christian!

Well, I'm going to read some entries...hope you have a blessed day and remember....Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hello to you!

Hope you're having a nice day today...it is sunny and very warm here in South Carolina.

Hubby and I have started walking together in our neighborhood in the late afternoons again...really enjoyable!

Daughter and I are planning on going shopping this afternoon...she needs to get her a new pair of shoes... My birthday is Monday and she already gave me some money and I bought a lazy-boy blue recliner with it.

Hope you have a good afternoon....

Take care and remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Hello Sweet Maria, Tomorrow is Sunday and I know that is your really big singin', praisin' and piano playin' at church. I will be thinking of you. Are you working at all these days, Hon? I had been "away" from this site for so long and I noticed that many of our old friends had been kind of like me with holding onto unwanted pounds or gaining. I was very impressed and pround of you for holding your own. By the way, do you have any opinion about John Edwards up there in the "north" :) Love you. Stella
