Thumbs down Say Goodbye to July! Beach Daily 7/31

A sunshiny GOOD morning to you all,

Here it is the end of a month. It sure has been an interesting one.
We have gathered together here as a family to help us all on this path to healthier eating and a new WOL and a new WOE.
We are doing it. We are learning. We are finding out that if we make a slip we can and WILL immediately start again with our next bite.
We are finding support from "strangers" that understand us and our feelings.
We know that this is possible.
We have new attitudes that amaze even us.
We know that we are worth it and what a GREAT feeling this is.

I was amazed to see that my BMI is going down as well.

If you are doing a journal I have found a new place on the web for making your OWN questions. It is called:
www.DailyDiary.com

Have a great day and remember to take a minute JUST FOR YOU, pat yourself on the back and say: ATTA GIRL!


Lady, ATTA GIRL!

Good morning to you too Lady Sunshine , and to all of the other beach beauties as well.

I had a much better day at work yesterday. Thank you everyone for your support when I was feeling bad.

I finally found the Laughing Cow cheese around here, and it's wonderful!! If you haven't tried it yet and can find it, I recommend it highly!

Hey Ellis, when you have your next rock concert, will you remember to let us know so we can all come see you?

Speaking of long hairs where they shouldn't be....have you ever gone to brush off what you think is a loose hair somewhere, only to find out it's attached? Then you wonder how long it's been there and how many other people saw it!

To you ladies who are finding your bones again (ribs, hip, and collar bones)....you mean they really are still there? I had given up hope of ever finding mine again, but you've given me renewed hope!

Den, I hope you neighbor and your friend are doing better. How awful for both of them.

To those who have stayed OP and have avoided "bad" food and temptations, Way to Go!

And to those who have strayed a little, remember today is a new day...don't look back and beat yourself up...just move forward!

Have a great day at the beach, and enjoy this last day of July!

Morning All!

Just wanted to check in ... busy day today and a lousy day yesterday, ah but that is in the past and nothing I can do about it now.

Have a wonderful day and be kind to yourself!

Good morning, Lady!! "Say Goodbye to July" ... You're a friggin' POET, girl!!
I'm going to print off your "prayer" and hang it on the wall. I love it... thank you, sweetie.

Twodog, I can't think of anything WORSE than standing in front of a crowd of people PERFORMING!!
I'd LOVE to have all of you come up for a visit. If you each lose 5 pounds, we should be able to fit everyone in.
I'm so glad work was better yesterday, hon. Here's to another good day!
(and "yes" to the hair question. YUCK!!)

Sflake... new day today... hang in there, sweetie!

love and hugs to all... back later...

Wow! What a bunch of cheerleaders we have on The Beach! This is certainly a great and supportive new group.

Do any of you use the 3FC journals? I checked out the URL Lady posted and think it's much the same. Of course, there may be an option to keep it private. I use the 3FC journals which are not private and let it all hang out! The most liberating thing I ever did was to tell my husband my weight so I really have no secrets left.

Yesterday was a great day with no big problems. I did take a bite of a donut when I was at the Fair Office - force of habit - but spat it out. I've decided the Fair Office is a trigger place as opposed to a trigger food. Good thing I'm not there all the time as I was last summer. Aside from that, I was OP all day but still am not drinking enough water.

Gorgeous day underway here and it's going to be a scorcher so the AC goes on before I do my walk to the Lake with the Doggage. I have to plan cool meals today. DH will BBQ for sure. That man is a hero! He did the steak the other night in the middle of a thunderstorm. I should have taken a snap of him in my poncho and a sombrero with a glass of red in his hand!

Have a wonderful and thrilling Thursday! I can't believe it's the last day of July!

Dang! It's going to be a hot day!? Curses.
Ruth, I HATE those new journals! They are WEIRD!! (okay, I just don't get them, and I'm too lazy to figure them out... )

Talking Day 11 for me!!

Hello beautiful Chicksters!!!!

Another great day at the beach!!
Lady, what a nice way to start the day..so inspirational and soooo true

I did so well yesterday until I went to the grocery store on my way home from work....The BIG Kit Kat bar was calling my name and I bought it...but, it's done with and it didn't trigger me into a binge...I promptly went home and made salmon and steamed zucchinni and summer squash....then a 2 mile walk with the puppy. I also did go to the gym during lunchtime and did upper body workout.
I didn't have any snacks yesterday so I think that attributed to my wanting/having the Kit Kat bar...
( I need to go thru the tabloid/candy free checkout from now on...)

Enough about me....How are you all doing?????

Smile Rah Rah...Sis Boom Bah!

Feeling pretty mischievous this morning. Not sure why, as work was grueling...tons of paperwork and actual criminal activity to boot! I have to make this quick as my DS needs to get to daycare so I can get some sleep.

I have been having problems waking up in the middle of the day RAVENOUS Yesterday it occurred to me that when I was 'On the Beach" that problem went away. I attributed it to the added protein I was eating in the morning. So today I made sure I ate a high protein breakfast...eggs cooked over 'shrooms, sliced ham, and tomatoes. It tasted great...I'll let you know if it helps me sleep through the day!

This was my first full day without making a bad food choice! Hooray for me! The momentum is there, I can feel it! I even walked on the treadmill during my lunch break. I tell ya, that is a major accomplishment these days!

It sounds as if you are all doing so well! It gives me hope and inspiration! And as much as I would love to hang out and "feel the love" I have to run! Take care, Beauties!

Ellen

Good morning, good morning

Oh my gosh, I could not believe how many posts there were yesterday! It's fantastic to see so many positive and motivated women here.

Den~~My prayers are with you and and your friends.

Gofishin~~Your computer skills are just fine.

Ellis~~The brunch you had for your friend (food, table setting, flowers) sound wonderful. I hope you had a fantastic time
Some of your comments yesterday were literally LOL funny
Are you sure that you're not a comedian????

Lady~~Thank you for the morning inspiration~~I love what you wrote this morning

Ellen~~How lucky you are to have your very own "body guards" while you walk at night

I had a great day yesterday. Yes, it rained when I went for my hair color consultation (I hate when that happens~it doesn't make for a good hair day ). I have an appointment this afternoon (yes, it will probably rain again) to get more highlights and some carmel glaze added to the "too dark color" that the last girl gave me. I hope the carmel glaze is sugar free !!!!

I found the exact furniture that I've been looking all over for and when DH came home , we went back over there to show him what I picked. He fell in love with the leather sofa and 1 1/2 chair and ottoman for him, so all the rest was a piece of cake to talk him into. NOTE: the Mexican food and margaritas he had before seeing the furniture didn't hurt either.

This year my goals were to "GET MY HOUSE IN ORDER" including my spiritual, physical and actual house, and I'm working hard on all three.

Everybody here this morning, and all to come~~~have a wonderful day and stay OP and drink that water.

Good Morning All! Habitat just came to pick up our old couch and my pooch is sitting here wondering what happened to his "lay on the back and look out the window" perch! "His " new one arrives this PM. Managed a great day off yesterday- stayed legal through Sea Biscuit even though the popcorn smell shaft must have been placed directly under our seats! Went to Perkins and had a Salmon dinner with salad and steamed broccoli--such a change from our Sonny's BQ days ( an all you can eat ribs, FF, cole slaw, beans and garlic bread place!) When I drive by it I simply blow them a kiss! To all the new chicks out there - stay with it-it works! To the "old" crew - keep at it! Here comes Aug.!

Den, how is your dear old neighbour? Thinking of you, hon.

Hey, what's with all the new furniture, Laked and Sil?!
Sil, your new stuff sounds GREAT! Congratulations on "getting your house in order"! And thank you for thinking I'm funny... that's very sweet of you. In real life, I'm a complete BORE! I'm serious... ask Ruth. My eyes glaze over and I have no idea what to talk about. I'm at my best when I'm alone.

Gofishin', I thought I should read the instruction booklet before starting up the saw. I HATE reading instructions, but ... danger danger!!
I was going to read it in bed last night, but I figured it'd put me out for the count.

Bobo, how is your little love? I hope she's doing alright with the cast.

Oh Didi... PLEASE don't talk about giant Kit Kats!! Aren't they just wicked!?

Whimsey, I'm glad your tummy is better.

Franny, could you send a car up here to pick up a couple of dopers, please?

I've been around even if I don't post! Well, tomorrow night we're grocery shopping and starting SBD on Monday. Our biggest problem will be the first few days with DH's lunch. The veggies won't be a problem because he eats huge salads, but hasn't found a low carb dressing he likes. Also, I usually pack him an entree from leftovers. ( I cook with planned leftovers in mind). Until I have some of those in LC form it will be a trick!

Not much else exciting here. Had a scare this morning. I opened the blind and saw a dead cat in the road. For those who don't know, we live in the country and have a lot of outside cats...too many, but we love our kitty kitties. We also have a farm across the road (unoccupied) where more cats live, so there are a lot of cats. Anyway, this wasn't one of ours and it was wild, but still we'll miss it.

As for the weekend, well, DH has to fix the automatic outside light as it is black as pitch at night. I have laundry to do and I want to wash out the refrigerator/freezer combo. Sunday brings church and still another meeting after.

Have a good weekend everyone. BTW, I don't usually greet everyone individually as I'd forget someone and feel bad.
