Hello, Everybody! Hope you've all had a great day today! It has been sunny and warm here in S.C. (high was in the low 60's) and we (Hubby and I) grilled out hamburgers on the back deck this afternoon. They were real good! We had homefries and green string beans to go with them. (I made my hamburger with diet bread instead of buns and used 1 tablespoon 50 calorie mayo and a lot of lettuce.) Hubby and I had our first outside 'walk' of the year tonight. We only walked about 15 or 20 minutes, though.
We (Hubby and I) are still in church and I urge any of you who are not going right now to consider going to a Bible- believing church that teaches about Jesus Christ and that He gave His life on the cross and shed His blood for the remission of our sins and he arose from the dead and is alive forevermore, so we can be saved by believing in Him, confessing our sins and asking for his forgiveness of them, and repenting (turning away from our sins and forsaking them) and living for Him. To all who do, Jesus gives the gift of eternal life and there is no other way to be saved but THROUGH HIM. He is the only way. Simply being a good person does not give the gift of eternal life. You can't save yourself by doing good things. It is good to do good things, though. But to receive the gift of eternal life, a person must BELIEVE in Jesus Christ. 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.' John 3:16.
Have a good night!

I'm leaving for Island 140...Goodbye, Island 141! Good morning, everyone! Rainy morning here in South Carolina, currently 45 degrees fahrenheit, with high expected around 60. Hope you are all doing well. As for me, I feel discouraged because I got on the scale and it still sits on 141 this morning. I even got on the treadmill yesterday, in spite of sunburn, and got sunburn heated up worse, trying to break the barrier from 141 to 140. So, I guess this is just a wait and see, eh? My goal is to be at 140 within 2 more days (before April 1st). Anyway, all of you have a great day today. You're all doing terrific! :) Update: Menu for today is: Breakfast: Large salad of lettuce, toasted walnuts, cheddar cheese, chicken breast, onions, orange slices. Lunch: Banana, chicken, salad. Supper: Large bowl of vegetable soup. Lots of water, no soft drinks! (Thanks, Kyrin!) Have a great day! :)

Sailboat is ready and waiting...so what am I waiting for?
Good morning, everyone! Sunny and cool (currently 39, with high forecasted at 60 degrees fahrenheit) here in South Carolina. Menu for yesterday was: Breakfast: banana, cornbread, bowl of green string beans with potatoes, 7-up. Lunch: bowl of green string beans with potatoes, 7-up. Supper: one and a half cups shelled pecans, 1 orange, water. No exercise because of sunburn and swollen legs, ankles, and feet. However, I will try to get on the treadmill today as you all have me motivated to exercise. Hope you all have a great day! :)
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

Good morning, everyone. Yes, vacation was nice, but this sunburn is not nice. I don't know if the swollen ankles (and feet and legs) are due to sunburn or all the walking...but I couldn't do any exercise yesterday and had to keep my legs and feet elevated a lot during the day and the swelling is going down some now. The sinus infection is an allergy thing, I think. Anyway, yesterday's menu was: Breakfast: coffee, banana, 1/2 turkey pot pie. Lunch: 2 mackeral patties, grits, 7-up, banana. Snack: 1 cup shelled pecans, 1 orange. Supper: 2 mackeral patties, banana, 7-up. Total calories: Approximately 1800. I hope you all have a great day today. :)

Still here on Island 141...boat not ready to sail quite yet...still working on the sail. I received a note in a bottle yesterday saying why don't I just swim the rest of the way to Island 140. It would be a 24 hour swim, non-stop. I thought about it, but decided I am going to go ahead and finish the sail on the boat and then leave by boat.
Good morning, everyone! Today Hubby and I leave for our long weekend at the beach! :) It is sunny and high forecasted at 68 degrees fahrenheit for today. I am still at 141, weightwise. We plan to do a LOT of walking, along the beach and on the fishing piers...and we might fish if the fish are biting. I will miss all of you and plan to see you back here Monday morning. Take care, all of you and have a great weekend!

Boat is repaired and now I am making a sail for it. Island 140 is the last island in this chain of islands and the largest and the most difficult to get to of all the islands. But a sail should help instead of only boat paddles. Sometimes, to get to where we are going takes a little extra effort. I have found some good, healthy foods on this island. Wild yams, also a type of stringbean that grows on a very long vine, lots of fresh berries and nuts. Also, I have roasted the fish I caught and cleaned and prepared to take them with me on the completion of this journey. Will be leaving soon! :)
Good morning, everyone! Rainy morning here in South Carolina, supposed to clear up later and be beautiful. I have already fed the birds and squirrels. I have been sitting here by the window, watching them eat their breakfasts. Tomorrow Hubby and I will be leaving for our long weekend at the beach. (Forecasted to have warm, sunny weather throughout weekend, beginning tomorrow.) So, if I don't get to post tomorrow before we leave, I will catch you all Monday. However, I will be thinking of all of you while I am away, as I always do. Menu for today is: Breakfast: 2 cheesetoasts, 1 banana, 1 decaf coffee. Lunch: Fruit plate, decaf coffee. Supper: Soup, crackers, decaf tea. Snack, if have one: orange. Treadmill workout and lots of water. Have a great day, all of you! :)

The fishing is great here on Island 141. But I must not allow myself to continue to be distracted...I've got to get back to work on the boat!
Good morning, everyone! Sunny and cool here in South Carolina. I only ate one time yesterday and that was at the buffet...I don't think I went over 1200 calories.

Still here on Island 141, working on my boat. Hopefully, I will soon be on my way again. Lots of good fishing here.
Good morning, everyone! Partly sunny, with high 57 degrees fahrenheit today in South Carolina. Taking Hubby out to eat at his favorite buffet restaurant after church services. So, only coffee this morning for breakfast. Lunch will probably be 1200 calories at the buffet. Maybe an orange and more coffee tonight. Lots of walking, but faster than this kitty.
