Congrats on that 10 pound loss!


Donkey on 11/10/2017:
Well done! 10 pounds -- that's huge!

My very favorite Gospel is Matthew with Luke as a very close 2nd. Matthew 11:28-30 has gotten me through a lot of tough times.


horn_of_plenty on 11/14/2017:
You should be really proud of yourself!!!!! Good going to you, for keeping your goals and maintaining your progress!!!!!! and ten lbs is a lot! very good!

Good morning, Friends.

Having a mug of coffee over here...have some?

Looks like we may get rain here in SC.....

The above Bible verses are some of my very favorites, which I wanted to share with you today.

In these sometimes troubled times we all live in, it is refreshing and comforting to know that we all have Someone who cares for and loves us, a real Friend whom we can call on anytime, and His name is Jesus.

156 today...  Happy to finally be at this weight but continuing to work on goal at the same time.  Having reached a high weight of 165 earlier this year I am down 9 from that.  Current bmi 23.8.  More work to do!

Hello, Everyone.

 

Still at 157 today.  Tomorrow may be 156.  I am thinking, 'Am I actually doing this, actually sticking with this now???'  And the scale so far is saying yes. 

Good bye to my nite-time food binging.  Good bye, potato chips.  You tasted good but not THAT good.  Good bye ice cream.  You tasted good, too, but not THAT good.

You wanna know what losing weight feels like?  Go into a grocery store and pick up something that weighs one pound.  Do you want to wear that amount in weight?  Pick up something that weighs 5 pounds...say, a bag of potatoes.  Pick it up and put it down.  Heavy, isn't it?  Do you want to carry that around all the time on your body?  Pick up a 10 pounds bag of potatoes in the produce dept...heavy, huh?  Wanna wear that all the time?

..................................................

Something to think about...

Progress as of today: 48 lbs lost so far, only 9 lbs to go!

Donkey on 11/06/2017:
That's a good idea about going to the grocery store. And you're very right, if you think about some of these foods -- they aren't all THAT great.


BearCountryGG on 11/06/2017:
Good visuals.....that does put things in perspective doesn't it?


horn_of_plenty on 11/06/2017:
Yes! Awesome perspective with picking up equivalent weight !!!!

Horn_of_plenty on 11/06/2017:
Congrats on this new low # !! That's awesome...and taking a glance at your weight chart, it seems this is your lowest number perhaps the entire year! What a rockstar!

Hello, Everyone.

 

Still hanging in there at 158.

I just have to discipline myself to not give in to 'treats' in the evenings....

Keep up the good work and try for some less treats ! Maybe seltzer or Herbal tea instead ?


Donkey on 11/04/2017:
Maybe this is where you're meant to be. ???

We all have the treat problem...evenings are my worst time too.

Hello, Everyone.

 

I couldn't let this opportunity slip by without saying that as of today I am at 158!

...................................

 

I've really 'worked it' this week to achieve this.  Mainly low-carb and counting calories.  This is the second time I've been this low this year.  Recently I lost 5 pounds so add two more and that is 7.  But I'm not 'on a roll'....It is too easy to think we're on the right track and get sidelined again.  To get over-confident.  So constantly on guard.  For stressors/triggers...for cravings...for bad habits to reemerge...  You know the deal....

 

Hope you are having a blessed day in the Lord.

 

 

Love, Maria

Oh boy, I sure do know the drill, but congratulations anyway and keep up the good work!!!!


BearCountryGG on 10/21/2017:
Yup.....I know the drill too....and forgot the drill...and now I'm doing it all over again. You are doing SUPER!!!!


horn_of_plenty on 10/23/2017:
I eat based on how clothes fit, the scale, and how i feel. Lately,it seems i am able to indulge much more than ever before bc i have a good amount of muscle and can do a good amount of exercise...it's true, we always have to pay attention to what we are eating and calories or our "gains" at losing will just slip away again. We're on a roll when we focus, as you say!

Congrats on being back to your all-time low for the year :) You deserve it bc you worked towards it!!!!!!!

Hello, Everyone.

 

Have a cup of coffee this morning? coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

I thought I would say hello and do an update. As you can see, my weight is the same as the last time I was here, but during the time I was away, I gained 5 pounds and just got it off as of today!

...................................

 

 MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 is doing pretty well, thank the Lord.

..................................

 

HubbyLargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 has gone back to work for a while.  He and I will be celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary this evening after he gets off work, with him taking us out to a candlelight supper.

........................................

Even tho I do not do frequent updates, I still come here to read your diaries.

Are you loving the fall weather?  We, here in S.C. are happy we are getting much cooler weather.

 

Hope you are having a blessed day in the Lord.

 

 

Love, Maria

Happy Anniversary! Good job regulating your weight!


Horn_of_plenty on 10/18/2017:
I'm glad you are still coming back to DD! Happy anniversary to you & hubby! Yes, I usually have a cup of coffee also each morning & I am also enjoying the fall weather here in NYC!

I'm also happy to hear your mom is doing well and that you lost the 5 lbs fully today.

Lots to celebrate. You'll have to tell us what was on the menu at the restaurant! Rather, I want to know what hubby & you ate!

What job is your hubby doing?


Donkey on 10/19/2017:
Happy anniversary! I'm glad Mom is doing well, as well... Keep up the good work!

Hello, Friends.

 

Have a cup of coffee? coffeeyellowmuganimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

I seemed to have lost my incentive to not gain weight recently,  and I would just mindlessly get something to eat and nevermind the calories or anything and just eat it.  I regained back up to 164.  But I am back to 160 as of today, so I am tying to get back into the 150's...no easy task cause we all know, it is so much easier to put weight back on than to take it off.

So... I wanted to do an update and hopefully I will stay on the right track this time.

 MomIndianWomanOlder.gif image by autumn1234567 is still at the nursing home and doing pretty well, thank the Lord.

Hubby,LargeManWaving.gif image by autumn1234567 is helping my Brother to relocate back here to his hometown after living up north for years.  Hubby and I (and Brother) are enjoying our retirements.

So nice to hear from you! Don't let the bad times keep you away. That's when you need support the most.

Having said that, well done on getting back on track!

good job getting things back in order...you didn't get too far off track at all.

One step forward, one step back....if I could just leave the chips alone (or the ice cream for that matter)...I know there would be progress!  Big difference in my weight today and this time last year.  How easy it is to gain weight.  If I could get down to 158, just -3 pounds, I would feel so much better knowing I was making progress.  I have to look at getting to goalweight in little increments, not the whole pie.  That makes it feel more 'doable'.  What do ya think?

Hope you are having a blessed day.

One. Day. At. A. Time. It goes on so much faster than it comes off. Things you like in moderation or sticking strictly to serving size sometimes helps and serves the crave. Ya/No?

Maria7 on 07/21/2017:
Ya. Thank you. Especially the serving size.


BearCountryGG on 07/22/2017:
It isn't fair how it works....fun going on....drudgery coming off....makes me mad at myself for ever letting it happen to begin with......but too late to worry about that...let the work begin.


Donkey on 07/22/2017:
I feel your pain. If I had my way, I would eat ice cream or chips every night at 10:30p while watching TV. I did this for a few months and gained 50lbs.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/23/2017:
you know what, your animated woman rowing the boat that you put in your entries is very calming and relaxing to look at! To the point of almost being hypnotizing! It also reminds me of what this DD place is all about for me...comfort and a habit of routinely coming to a place to list my calories as well as my adventures and experiences and a place that is accepting of those things...and a community of people...all here to row our own little boats :)
