Hello, Friends.  

 Asking for your prayers for my very dear, sweet Aunt.  Hubby and I just got back from visiting her.  She was sleeping.

She is Mom's only Sister.Auntanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567 She is in a hospice care place.  She had a stroke last week.  She has always been an outstanding, very good, sweet, loving Aunt.  One that could be depended on for help when anyone needed help.  A wonderful Christian.  She is almost 91 (next month), almost 3 years older than Mom.  This is a very sad time.  We all love her very much.

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

 

Hope you are having a blessed day in the Lord.

I'll be thinking some kind thoughts for your Aunt. It's wonderful she has had the opportunity to live such a long life. Wishing her warm thoughts :) I'm sorry it's a rough time for you and your family.


Donkey on 06/13/2019:
I pray that your aunt find comfort and feel the love of her family. And I pray for you and your family in this difficult time.

Hello to you all.

Scale pleasantly reported 157 again this morning.  Still happy.  Think I will change my goal weight to 157, makes more sense instead of always feeling like I am 'not there' at goal weight.  Altho I am a little heavier than I think I prefer, maybe this is better.  Just be happy and thankful to be this size and not the much heavier size I once was almost 50 pounds ago, ha.  My orignial goal weight when I was at my heaviest of 205 many years ago was to weigh between 150 and 160, anyway.  Why shall we be so hard on ourselves, trying to obtain inobtainable perfection?  The only One Who is perfect is Jesus.

  My favorite flowers, orange tiger daylilies are now blooming in the front and in the back yards.  So beautiful.  Also this morning, when walking in the yard, I noticed that our gardenia bushes are blooming.  They smell so wonderfully sweet!  The rose bushes are blooming, pink ones, red ones, yellow ones and orange ones.  The petunias are blooming, red ones and pink with white stripes ones.  Lantanas are blooming...yellow ones so far and waiting on the purple ones and the orange ones.  I have been working a lot in the yards, trimming bushes mainly.

We all have so much to be thankful to the Lord for, if we only focus on the positives and not the negatives.  Hoping you are having a good day.

I applaud your new mindset. Your garden (or yard) sounds so beautiful. Who could not be happy surrounded by such loveliness?


Donkey on 05/23/2019:
I bet you find it easy to maintain at 157.


BearCountryGG on 05/23/2019:
Your flowers sound amazing.....talk about relaxing.....!!!! If you are staying at 157 then that is where your body is happy.....and it falls right into your original goal......PERFECT!!!


horn_of_plenty on 05/23/2019:
Totally agree on the goal weight thing. I also changed my chart here to reflect my "real" morning size weight that i seem to settle around, 115lbs on my short stature lol.

I love walking by homes that have flowers blooming, it sure smells wonderful!!!!! must look pretty too!

Hello to you all.

Scale weighed me at 157 this morning again.  Thought it might be 156, but still happy.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

Hoping you are having a good day.  Flowers are blooming and nice, sunny, warm days.  Soon the summer heat will be coming in, so really enjoying this springtime weather while we have it.

Horn_of_plenty on 05/15/2019:
funny your scale had you higher. my scale had me slightly lower than i expected. just a 1/2 lb lower :)


horn_of_plenty on 05/16/2019:
We are finally having all days of the week around 60-70 so everyone in NYC is happy now :)

Hello to you all.

Scale weighed me at 157 this morning again.  Although not at goal, pretty content at this weight currently as I may need to be a little heavier than I would preferr to have the energy to do the things I do daily.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

Hoping you are having a good day.  We are mostly staying in the 80's for highs in the daytime here, with morning lows in the 60's.

If your body likes it there and you feel good then I don't think the charts mean anything...you know how you feel the best....good for you Maria!!!


horn_of_plenty on 05/13/2019:
....Maria...i added photos ;)


horn_of_plenty on 05/13/2019:
will write again later!


horn_of_plenty on 05/13/2019:
same here, seems i might need to be heavier right now to be happy.


horn_of_plenty on 05/13/2019:
but i think as the weather improves, i'll lose the weight as i usually do by being outside more.


Donkey on 05/15/2019:
I agree that if your body is happy at 157 and you feel good and happy, that's probably where you belong! I've been miserable at some numbers, and quite content at others. I'm 10 pounds heavier in my journey, and I think this is where I'm meant to be, too.

Sounds like you are in a happy place, which is great. I had to smile yesterday when I read your entry though.. it's been cold, rainy, gray, depressing here all week.


BearCountryGG on 05/03/2019:
Sounds like a nice relaxing day for you.


horn_of_plenty on 05/03/2019:
scale has been weighing me around the same too, not complaining either!

my goal is to keep cardio more often now in the schedule, more to be fitter but that should also keep my weight in check!

Hello to you all.

156 today.  Pollen allergies have decreased my appetite.

horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2019:
yeah, pollen will bother me too soon!


Donkey on 04/09/2019:
Great progress! Is it the allergy medication that reduces your appetite? Or the actual symptoms (e.g. stuffy nose) that helps? Well, whatever works, I suppose!

Yes, a very sunny day here too! enjoy!


Donkey on 04/07/2019:
I read an interesting thing this morning: To those who lament that they've "only" lost 1 or 2 pounds, go to the supermarket and look at a pound of ground beef. Helps put things into perspective.

Go Maria!
