Hello to you!

Hope you've had a wonderful day today....

Today has been another busy day...My sister and I ran some more errands together...and we ate out breakfast together, too. We went to the gym before we ate breakfast....we did a LOT of walking, probably about 3 or 4 hours of walking or even more while out doing errands.

Today's menu has been:

Breakfast #1: 1 eggbeater (eggwhite) scrambled, no oil 2 diet wheat breads

1 coffee, sweetened with Splenda (tastes very close to sugar and no calories)

Breakfast #2: steak biscuit, hashbrowns, diet caffeinated pepsi, water (lots of water today)

Lunch: none, but did drink 2 more diet pepsis, caffeine free and more water

Supper: Hamburger patty, baked, and ketchup

1 baked fresh summer squash, 1 baked zuchinni

1 cup baked okra

1/4 tomato, 1/4 onion, 1/2 cucumber

Sugarfree cherry Koolaid

1/2 serving apple pie

Today has been a beautiful day. I took my Mother to pay her bills and do some shopping this afternoon. She is still walking with her walker, but she was so happy she was able to get out and do things she used to do before she fell and broke her hip in February of this year. She delighted in going to her favorite make-up store and walking in (with her walker and with me holding on to her) to get her favorite makeup, then going to another store and picking out a nice outfit for herself and some jewelry and other things. I took her to get groceries instead of taking a list and getting the groceries for her and delivering them to her, as I have been doing and she had a good time picking out what she wanted in the grocery store, too! I told her to just take her time and I went with her and made sure she was safe up and down the aisles.

Well, hope you have a good night...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! If you haven't asked Him to become your Lord and Saviour, today is a good day to do it...'Behold, today is the day of salvation'...the time to be RIGHT with the Lord is NOW! He is coming back for those who belong to Him...Are you ready???

Love, Maria

Caffeinated diet pepsi

Supper: 2 baked whiting fish fillets

I just got back from church practice a little while ago...playing the piano and singing. I love it!

Hubby has tomorrow off from work...so we are planning, Lord willing, to eat out buffet, his favorite. I will be aware of 'flavorings' which are mostly FATS, and eat more salad items than 'fat-flavored' items, hehehe.

Well, hope you have a good night...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! If you haven't asked Him to become your Lord and Saviour, today is a good day to do it...'Behold, today is the day of salvation'...the time to be RIGHT with the Lord is NOW!

Hello to you!

Hope you're having a great day... it is sunny and warm here in S.C.

I'm on here, trying to distract myself from feeling sad. Have you ever went out of your way to do something really special and nice for someone, only for the person to want you to do more for them, and when you couldn't do what they wanted on the day they wanted,because of other obligations, though you told them you could 2 days later from when they wanted it done, they turned on you??? Nothing new. Just wanted to vent.

On the dietfront, I'm up a little cause of eating out twice buffet recently...I guess that's the reason...you never know how much fat is used to flavor things at buffet restaurants...I was very surprised when I put in the name of a restaurant Hubby and I go to at the site called 'calorieking' and the results showed an extremely high fat content in almost all of the foods, even the ones you would think were 'safe'...i.e., green string beans, squash, steamed carrots, you get the picture. Have you ever checked out that site??? I think it is www.calorieking.com It shows the nutritional contents of foods and also it has a place where you can put in the name of a restaurant and click on the individual food items and see the fat content as well as other info of different foods they serve. So, I thought I was doing well, avoiding breads, macaroni and cheese, potato items, etc...only to discover that the veggies I had eaten were loaded with fats, which not only is not good because of being fats, but also because of the high amount of calories fats add to foods....as if they had been drenched in fat as they were cooked...so now I know...uh-huh. Still been working out at the gym regularly, and though i'm up a little on the scale, I'm down a little with the tape measure, which I think is more important than what the scale says.

I'm writing this in orange because we have 3 beautiful daylillies that are orange in bloom today. One of them I had moved from the back yard to the front, right beside the front steps, the other day.

It is a breezy day today...we got a little rain earlier, then sunshine again.

Hubby and I grilled out hamburgers on the back deck this afternoon together. They were real good. He had two and I had one. I had lettuce, onion, and tomato on mine and he had onion and tomato on his, as he doesn't like lettuce. He says that is 'rabbit food', hehe. He wanted some french fries, so I fixed him baked 'french fries'.

I am CRAVING chocolate....my comfort food...NOT!!! Instead I'm having sugar-free cherry Koolaid...delicious....with ice.

I wanted to get a watermelon when I was out earlier, but they are still very high for just the little ones. So, I didn't get one. The Koolaid is really in place of the watermelon, not the CHOCOLATE.

I'm sitting here, keying as I look out the window and watch cars (mainly of neighbors) ocassionally go by on the road in front of our house.

I'd like to hear how your day is going.

Remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! He may come back today...be ready and WATCHING!!!

Love, Maria

Good afternoon to you! Hope you're having a lovely day! I've been very busy today, cleaning, and just now fed and watered the flowers all around the house outside. It is a sunny, very warm day today, may get up to 95 degrees fahrenheit here, as was said on t.v. ______________________________________________________________________

Lovely day here in S.C. Sunny, very warm. I just got back from taking my Mother for her checkup. She is doing pretty well for having had hip surgery 3 months ago. She walks with her walker. Thank the Lord she can walk. The doctor said she can begin trying to walk some with a cane, also. She is happy about that.

Hope you're having a nice day today!

Yesterday was a good day eating-wise and working-out-wise at the gym. I was still eating some of the soup I made the day before, chicken and vegetable soup. I also had an egg sandwich with egg-beaters (egg white) and diet breads and I also had.....shall I say it...okay...I had M&M's chocolate covered peanuts and a small bag of potato chips, hehehe! But I did a really good workout at the gym, so that's okay sometimes, hehehe!

Think I'll go read some entries....remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! Have a great day!

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

I agree that Christianity is a choice and I know that there are, indeed many other religions...but I choose to be a follower of Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Saviour and there is none that can save, but Him. He has forgiven all my sins and given me the gift of eternal life through what he did for us on the cross, giving His life and shedding His blood for the forgiveness of our sins. One day He is coming back again and it may even be today. My prayer is for everybody to be ready. (Please read the chapter in the Bible, Matthew 24.) In Matthew 24:44 Jesus says: 'Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.' Jesus says '....him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out' in John 6:37. I pray that if you are not a Christian, you will ask him to be Lord of your life today.

It has been another beautiful sunny, very warm day today here in South Carolina. A while ago, it was 89 degrees fahrenheit with heat index of 91. It's probably warmer than that now. Right now, I am cooking a big pot of homemade chicken and vegetable soup while I'm drinking sugar-free cherry Koolaid as I key this, ha ha! The ingredients of the homemade soup are: 2 skinless chicken breasts (to be deboned and made into little pieces after they are cooked done), 1 pound baby carrots, 1 large squash, (diced), 2 medium onions (diced), 14 ounces french style green beans, fresh corn off 1 large corn on the cob, and salt and pepper to taste. Yummy! I just tried a little of it while it's still cooking and getting very tender. Tastes real good! (smile!)

We had a wonderful church service this morning! I hope each of you were in church, worshipping the Lord (Jesus Christ) also.

Menu today so far has been: Breakfast: 1/2 cup egg beater (egg white) and 2 diet breads

10 oz of diet caffeine-free pepsi

Snack: Water

Lunch: 1 small chicken/broccoli pot pie and more water.

Snack will probably be another sugar-free Koolaid cherry icy like yesterday's, about 20 cals.

Supper is also looking like a repeat of yesterday (steak, baked squash and okra.)

Going to read some entries now...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria (SMILE!)

fairytalegirl on 05/23/2004:
One thing I really like about this site is the unconditional and non-judgemental support we can give each other as women (mostly women anyway). But please remember, that even if we all have similar issues with weight, we are not all the same in other ways, such as nationality, race, religion, etc. Your comment of "I hope you were in church worshipping the Lord (Jesus Christ)", implies that we might all be Christian, when in fact I am sure there are many different faiths that people believe in here at diet diaries, Jewish, Pagan, atheist, whatever. I think its great that you enjoyed your own church service, theres absolutely nothing wrong with that, but not all of us choose to believe the same things you might. I really don't mean this as a negative comment, I just had to get that thought off my chest. I think you're doing great on your diet or "way of life", having maintained a weight loss for 3 or 4 years is great! Keep up the good work, and hopefully we can all continue to support each other despite of our differences.

Hello to you!

How are you today???

Hubby and I just got back a little while ago from being out looking for him a truck...but they are all so high-priced. He has a truck that he drives, but we are hoping to get him a much nicer and newer one. While we were gone, we ate out lunch at a buffet restaurant, his favorite kind. I opted for a salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, spinach leaves, carrots and just a tiny little bit of thousand island dressing and yeast rolls. Neither of us had a dessert, didn't want one.

Still wearing size 10 jeans. Still going to the gym 3 times a week, to change to 4 times a week beginning this coming Monday, walking 1 and 1/2 miles to 2 miles each time and work out with weights each time, as have been doing.

Today is sunny and VERY WARM, around 90, here in S.C.

Hope you're having a nice day today...

Remember, Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria (Here is you a smile :-D )
