Hello to you all.

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

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.

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:
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.

Hoping this progress stays after regaining my appetite.

Interesting- wish the pollen reduced 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!

Yeah, your Spring has sprung so there must be pollen everywhere! it's just starting here in NYC!

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!

Hello to all of you and hoping you are all having a nice Friday. 

Scale weighed me at 158 this morning.  I have reduced sodium in my diet and almost caffeine-free now.

nativeamericanwomanandcanoeanimgif.gif image by autumn1234567

 

 

The pollen has been very heavy here for over a week now and Hubby, Daughter, and I have been dealing with the effects of pollen allergies.  How is it your way?

Donkey on 04/05/2019:
I applaud your efforts! Sodium and coffee are the last 2 vices I have. And when I get to the point of when I'm ready to tackle the next one, it will be to reduce sodium. That is hard! - because there is salt in almost everything we buy that's not fresh.

My boss suffers allergies something awful. I have suggested to him that he buy an air purifier for his office so that he has some place to go where he can get relief.

They keep promising spring temperatures but so far, we've barely reached 50F. This weekend though might come through.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2019:
those are some great changes and not easy changes to make! you did awesome, just as Donkey said! Some people never change their unhealthy habits (i have a smoker friend who still smokes despite LOTS of damage to his lungs just before the cancer stage, already with COPD and still smoking!).

So, good job to you to want to improve your health enough that you are ok to make some changes. !!!

Hello to all of you and hoping you are having a nice Saturday. 

Scale weighed me at 158 this morning, so down another one.  Prayer to stop eating after consuming a certain amount of calories is helping the most.

Doing well, Maria! Setting and abiding by limits can be so difficult. I know there are times where I just want to sit and eat the whole (large) chocolate bar. I applaud your self-discipline and self-denial.


horn_of_plenty on 04/01/2019:
same here...i try to stop before i overdo things.

it helps to realize that saving calories after a meal for the next meal is more fun than bingeing and feeling horrible after and having to "starve" the rest of the day. i'm really trying to learn to be happy with less...

also, i've been decreasing my daily allowance little by little trying to go back to 2000 cal per day, not 2200. i feel a tad slimmer but still heavier than i was. it takes time to even lose 2 lbs - takes like a few months!

YES, IT'S STARTING TO GET WARMER! THANK GOSH!


Donkey on 03/26/2019:
Isn't it too bad that weight doesn't come off as easily or quickly as it does to put on?

The weather people keep teasing us with 60 degree forecasts but it hasn't happened yet! For one thing, the winds here can make any temperature feel 10 degrees colder. However, I try not to complain because it's these winds that keep the hot summers bearable!


happy-1 on 03/27/2019:
You are a great role model.
