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!

Love, Maria (SMILE!)

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

Good morning to you! It is a very warm but gorgeous, sunny day here in S.C! Supposed to get into the upper 90's today, maybe even reach 100 degrees fahrenheit with heat indexes even higher! But this is July-August temperatures...and so we're used to it here!

Today is 'pay bills' day, so I will be leaving soon to go do that...

I have found that eating very small meals with about 2 or 3 hours between them each day is helping to stay on track and maintain goalweight easier than eating 3 larger meals a day and maybe a snack or two....and this way, you can have your snacks, too, if your '3 main meals' are small.

We had a good practice at church last night...Hubby went with me. I play the piano at our church and we have a 'praise team practice' every Tuesday night. Anyway, midweek service is tonight and we are ready to sing!

Well...hope you have a blessed day today...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria (SMILE!)

Hello to you!

Hope you are having a wonderful evening. Today has been a good day...(every day is a GOOD day with the Lord!)...and we have gotten some more rain that we needed...so now the flowers are blooming even more beautifully!

Remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! Tomorrow is Sunday and time to go to church...hope you, too are a Christian and plan to attend your church, but if you're not, remember today is the day of salvation...why don't you invite Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior of your life now? You'll never regret it...There is JOY in living for Jesus and knowing you belong to Him! He's coming back again and today may be the day!

Love, Maria

Hello Maria, Do you remember me? I see that you and the Lord are still as tight as ever :) I am back again to start from scratch, really. I will look forward to your "shine" to inspire me as it used to.

Hello to you!

Hope you are doing well!

'Tis the season for shelling peas and putting them up. The orange daylillies are so pretty in bloom. Warm, sunny days. Blue skies and birds singing in the trees. Summertime!

Have a good night and remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I! Today is the day of salvation and I pray you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior...if not, why not ask him to be Lord of your life today? He loves you so much He has already given his life for yours...all you need to do is repent of your sins, ask Him to forgive you and believe in Him and live for Him according to His holy Word, the Bible. I'm praying for you!

Love, Maria

Hello to you! It is a beautiful, sunny, warm day here in South Carolina! Hope you are doing well!

On the dietfront, have done about 1750 cals for today.

I had a fresh, cold peach a little while ago...it was delicious! They are so low in calories and pretty good on the glycemic index for a carb. Anyway, I like to put peaches in the refrigerator to chill after I get them home and this one was sooooooooooo ripe and yummy! (SMILE!)

Well, tomorrow is Sunday and time to go to church. I hope you are in church also and a Christian. (Smile!) I love our Lord Jesus Christ and I'm happy to say it anytime, anywhere, as a matter of fact, it is a great honor and privilege to be a child of the King!

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

Love, Maria

Good evening to you!

I hope you've had a nice day and are having a nice evening!

There is thunder nearby, so this will be a short entry. Did 2 miles (walking) at the gym this morning, for a total of about 7 to 8 miles this week (went 4 days) at gym. This doesn't include lots of other walking done this week not at gym. Also worked out with weights some at gym this week. As for cals, did approximately 1700 today.

Have a good night.

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

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hello to you!

Hope you've had a wonderful, blessed day today!

It has been a nice day here in South Carolina...mostly cloudy and warm.

Still going to the gym, 3 or 4 times a week, increasing miles walked from 5 or 6 miles (or more) a week to 8 to 10 miles (or more) per week, beginning tomorrow (Lord willing). Still working out with weights at gym also.

Counting calories and trying to keep them lowfat. I've gotten pretty good at the counting of calories...I used to keep a food journal...for a long time...but now I've memorized the amounts of calories in what I eat, so everything becomes a number...like the number 1 is for 100 calories and 2 for 200, etc...so when I look at a food I'm going to eat, I instantly size it up with its portion size (if it's unwrapped, like for example, in a restaurant)...and sometimes I count foods together at meals...a bologna sandwich eaten here at home becomes a '1'...and a little peanut butter wafer I like becomes a '2'...today I had a brownie...it became a 4, even though it probably had less than 400 calories in it because it was small, I still went with the top number I guessed it was...I bought it unwrapped, so there was no info...Anyway, I keep a mental 'tally' of the latest number and it helps me not to go over the amount I allot for the day. I may remember that the number after breakfast is a '3'...then after lunch, it has become an '8' because of 500 additional calories added to the 300...then a snack in the afternoon changes the '8' to a '10'...and supper changes the '10' to a number representing how many calories the supper is, which is my total for the day (I usually do not eat after supper). I do my last oral hygiene of the day after supper, so as not to be tempted to go back into the kitchen for a late snack which would mean going over the day's alloted calories. I think...if I eat a late snack, not only will I go over the alloted calories for the day, but I will have to redo the last oral hygiene of the day and that's 2 against 1 (the 1 being the temptation to overeat, hehehe!) I key this hoping this might help someone. (smile!)

Well, hope you all have a good night...remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria
